The BoD of Exprivia takes note of the referral of the approval of the Interim Report at 30 september 2019 by the Board of Directors of the subsidiary Italtel, and resolves to defer the approval of the group Interim Report at 30 September 2019

13 November 2019

The Board of Directors of Exprivia has resolved to postpone the approval of the interim report at 30 September 2019.

In this regard, the Board of Directors of Exprivia has acknowledged that the 12th november 2019 the Board of Directors of Italtel S.p.A., the company's main subsidiary, resolved to postpone the approval of the interim report at 30 September 2019, considering that:

1. As already communicated to the market on august 6th, the analysis of the results of Italtel at June 30th and the projection of the Italtel backlog at the end of the year, highlighted the continuing difficulties encountered by Italtel in its activities and above all in the domestic market, also in the second half of the year, with the consequence that year-end revenues and Ebitda, of Italtel and its subsidiaries, are expected to reduce compared to the Business Plan 2018-2023.
2. Considering the analysis of the management figures at 30 September and the deviations detected with respect to the Italtel business plan, the Italtel Board of Directors deemed it necessary to check the value of some Italtel assets, such as goodwill and deferred tax assets, whose execution, through a new impairment test, will be processed with the support of an independent third-party expert.
3. Italtel started a confrontation dialogue with its lenders to evaluate possible solutions in light of the new industrial perspectives being developed.
4. In view of the need for further analysis, the Italtel Board of Directors resolved to postpone the approval of the figures at 30 September and to send to the parent company Exprivia only the figures relating to Revenues, Ebitda and the Net Financial Position.

Therefore, as a consequence of the above, the Board of Directors of Exprivia deemed it appropriate to postpone the decision regarding the approval of its interim report at 30 September 2019.

In order to provide a preliminary information on the performance of the entire group, the Exprivia Board of Directors has authorized the circulation of some management data.

The IT operating segment, namely the Exprivia Group net of the subsidiary Italtel, grew and closed the quarter with revenues of 118.8 mln, compared with 115.6 mln in 2018, an increase of 3.2 mln equal to 2.8%.
