For this purpose, by January 31st 2013, these shareholders can request the Appointed Intermediary, Banca Imi S.p.A., through their Depository Intermediaries, to carry out the necessary transactions. After that date, shareholders shall be granted only the possibility to sell their own fractions through the same Appointed Intermediary.
