EXOR treasury stock

On November 11, 2015 EXOR completed the placement of 12 million treasury shares (4.87% of share capital) through an accelerated book building offering to institutional investors for a total gross amount of €511.2 million.

The placement of the shares, which were acquired by EXOR at an average per share price of €14.41, was closed at a price of €42.60 per share, corresponding to a discount of 4.99% on the closing market price on the transaction date.

Following this transaction EXOR holds 11,883,746 treasury shares equal to approximately 4.83% of share capital. Lastly, in 2016 EXOR will cancel the remaining treasury shares except for those treasury shares necessary to service EXOR’s stock options plans.

Stock Option Plan 2015-2018

In 2015 the directors of EXOR were awarded 28,032 options to the directors of EXOR under the new Incentive Plan approved by the shareholders’ meeting on May 29, 2015. The purpose of the Incentive Plan is to align the compensation of the directors with the strategic objectives of the company, as an alternative to the cash compensation established by the shareholders’ meeting. The Plan provides for free shares to be awarded for a total maximum number of 70,000 EXOR shares to the directors who decide to join the Plan, subject to the continuation of their appointment as company director up to the vesting date in 2018.

The Plan will be serviced exclusively by treasury stock without the issue of new shares, and, therefore, will have no dilutive effect.
