The Composition with Creditors provides, among other things, that Astaldi's unsecured creditors are satisfied through the award of:
(i) newly issued Astaldi ordinary shares, traded on the Mercato Telematico Azionario - MTA, organized and managed by Borsa Italiana S.p.A. ("Shares"), assigned to creditors in the amount of no. 12,493 shares for every 100 Euro of credit;
(ii) equity financial instruments (“SFP”), which will give each holder the right to contribute to the net proceeds from the liquidation of the assets included in the assigned assets, assigned to creditors in the ratio of no. 1 SFP for every Euro of credit claimed.
It should be noted that with regard to the Shares, in the event that the unsecured creditor must be attributed a fraction of the Share, it will be rounded up to the next higher unit; and that as regards the SFPs, in the event that the unsecured creditor is to be attributed a fraction of SFPs, the fractional amounts will be canceled and rounded up to the lower unit.
The Shares and the SFPs are jointly referred to as the "Securities".
2. The characteristics of the Securities
The Shares will be listed and will be tradable on the Mercato Telematico Azionario - MTA, organized and managed by Borsa Italiana S.p.A .
The SFPs will not be listed and will not be tradable on any regulated market or multilateral organized trading facility.
Both the Shares and the SFPs will be in dematerialized form at Monte Titoli S.p.A. ("Monte Titoli"), and therefore not represented by a paper certificate.
