Paolo Scaroni

Good afternoon, ladies and gentlemen, and thank you for joining us on this call on the disposal of our stake in SNAM. Our lock-in value from our holding in SNAM, a fully [unbundled] and regulated company is one of Eni’s stated strategic objectives. We first identify SNAM as a non-core asset in March 2011 and have since been starting options to maximize its value through divestment.

Within this context the pace has been regulated by the Italian government, which sets the ball rolling in January, firm up the legal framework and timing in March and finalize the divestment conditions last Friday, identifying Cassa Deposito e Prestiti as the buyer for the controlling stake. We are pleased that we have been able to reach a rapid deal with Cassa Deposito e Prestiti and today Sandro and I will take you through the terms and conditions of our transaction, our thoughts on the remaining stake in SNAM and give you some initial visibility on what Eni will look like after the SNAM disposal has been completed.
