Shareholders’ meeting approves 2011 Financial Statements

Cassa depositi e prestiti (CDP) announces that the Shareholders’ Meeting met today to approve the separate financial statements for 2011.

Cassa depositi e prestiti (CDP) announces that the Shareholders’ Meeting met today to approve the separate financial statements for 2011. The consolidated financial statements, which also reflect the results of TERNA Spa and the other subsidiaries, were presented during the meeting too.

 

Financial statement approval and dividend payment

In 2011, net income amounted to €1,612 million. The result is attributable in particular to the increase in net interest income, which rose to €2,329 million (+40%) thanks to the stabilisation of lending and funding rates.
Net income for 2011 rises by 18% compared with 2010 if we exclude non-recurring factors from both years (which would otherwise not be comparable), namely the capital gain of about €1 billion recognised by CDP in 2010 following the share exchange with the Ministry for the Economy and Finance, and the change in the accounting treatment of the commissions paid to Poste Italiane for its postal savings placement and management services following the change in fee arrangements. This performance enables us to distribute a dividend of € 371 million.

 

Developments in the main aggregates of CDP's separate financial statements were as follows.
