ENI's CEO Discusses Q1 2012 Results - Earnings Call Transcript

In the first quarter of 2012, adjusted net profit was €2.48 billion, up 13% compared with a year ago as a result of better operating performance. This positive effect was partially offset by higher financial charges, which increased by €207 million, and a higher consolidated tax rate, up approximately 6 percentage points.

In Italy, overall sales rose by 1.4% with higher demand from residential user and higher sales to the network balancing market more than compensating declining volumes sold to power generation and wholesalers.
