Turin, 6 May 2024 - The Ordinary and Extraordinary Shareholders' Meeting of Italgas took place today in Turin under the chairmanship of Benedetta Navarra. The meeting was attended by shareholders holding 77.040% of the share capital.

“The excellent performance recorded by the Group in 2023, which translated into further growth in all the economic and financial indicators - underlined Italgas' Chairperson Benedetta Navarra - allowed us to propose to the Shareholders' Meeting a dividend distribution of 0.352 euros per share, an 11% increase on last year. An important signal for the satisfaction of our investors as well”.

Paolo Gallo, CEO of Italgas, commented:

“2023 was a year of further growth for Italgas, which contributed to our Group's definitive evolution into a Network Tech Company. This is a significant achievement, which sees Italgas increasingly establish itself as a global benchmark, capable - through its networks - of generating efficiency and returning value to territories and communities thanks to the lever of technological innovation.

Digital transformation is confirmed as the pivotal factor for our sustainable development path. An enabling element which, after having made us the first gas utility in the world to have a fully digitised network, will allow us to support Greece in phasing out coal and lignite, speed up the ecological transition process of our territories and make a decisive contribution to the water sector as well.

 In fact, 2023 was also the year in which we significantly strengthened our presence in the water sector through Nepta, which is now one of the country's main players, directly and indirectly serving a population of approximately 6.2 million people. And it is precisely by borrowing the technologies developed in gas networks that we hope to improve the efficiency and quality of the service in an area that has historically suffered from a considerable fragmentation of management and lack of investments. We are already doing this and will continue to do so with ever greater effectiveness."

The Shareholders' Meeting:

  • examined the consolidated financial statements of the Italgas Group as at 31 December 2023, which closed with a net profit attributable to the Group of € 439.6 million (€ 407.3* million in 2022) and an adjusted net profit attributable to the Group of € 439.6 million (€ 395.7* million in 2022);

  • resolved to allocate € 0.352 (+11% compared to the previous year) as a dividend due on each share in proportion to the shares in circulation on the coupon payment date, using the profit for the financial year amounting to € 301,433,790.24 as recorded in Italgas S.p.A.’s financial statements as at 31 December 2023.
