Significant relationships are those identified by the applicable provisions of Legislative Decree 58 of 24 February 1998 and the Regulations implementing Consob Resolution of 14 May In the event of a tie between lists, a ballot will be held by all the shareholders at the Meeting in order to establish a ranking for the candidates on these lists If, at the end of voting, a number of Board members belonging to the less represented gender Page 10 of 23

11 and/or Directors who satisfy the Independence Requirements are not elected to ensure the presence on the Board of Directors of the related minimum number of Directors, as many elected candidates as necessary have to be excluded, replacing them with qualifying candidates from the same list as the candidate to be excluded, according to the order in which they are listed. Substitutions take place first for the less represented gender and then those who satisfy the Independence Requirements. In both cases, this substitution mechanism is applied firstly, in sequence, to each of the lists that have not contributed a Director who meets the requirement in question, starting with the one that received the most votes. If this is not sufficient or if both of the first two lists have contributed at least one Director who meets the requirement in question, the substitution is to be applied, in sequence, to both lists, starting with one that received the most votes. Within the lists, the substitution of candidates to be excluded is applied starting from the candidates with the highest progressive number. If, even by applying these substitution mechanisms, it is not possible to complete the minimum number of Board members belonging to the less represented gender and/or Directors who meet the Independence Requirements, the Meeting has to elect the missing Directors by resolution passed by a relative majority on the proposal of the members present. In this case, the substitutions apply, in sequence, to each of the lists, starting from the one that received the most votes and, within the lists, starting from the candidates with the highest progressive number. 3. If only one valid list is presented, all the Directors to be elected are taken from that list. 4. If no valid lists are presented by the shareholders, the Board of Directors may present to the Shareholders' Meeting a pre-compiled voting card, also in electronic form, containing a non-binding list of candidates. In this case, all shareholders may alter all or part of the voting form, deleting the candidates they do not intend to vote for and, if they want, adding one or more new candidates in place of those deleted The candidates obtaining the highest number of votes are elected In the event of a tie between various candidates, the Meeting holds a second ballot to establish how they are to be ranked If, at the end of voting, a number of Board members belonging to the less represented gender and/or Directors who satisfy the Independence Requirements have not been elected to ensure the presence on the Board of Directors of the related minimum number of Directors, as many elected candidates as necessary have to be excluded, replacing those that received the least votes with the first candidates not elected who meet the requirements. Substitutions take place first for the less represented gender and then those who satisfy the Independence Requirements. If, even by applying this substitution mechanism, it is not possible to complete the number of Directors to be elected, the Meeting has to elect the missing Directors by resolution passed by a relative majority on the proposal of the members present. 5. If no valid list is presented and the Board of Directors does not make a proposal pursuant to paragraph 4, or if, despite the presence of lists, the total number of nineteen Directors under the preceding provisions is not reached, the Meeting shall elect the missing Directors by a relative majority among the individual candidates proposed by the members present, subject to compliance with the minimum number of Directors belonging to the less represented gender and/or Directors who meet the Independence Requirements In the event of a tie between various candidates, the Meeting holds a second ballot to establish how they are to be ranked. Article If, during the year, one or more Directors are no longer available, they are to be replaced according to the following provisions. 2. If the Director who is no longer available was taken from the list that obtained the highest number of votes, the Board of Directors, with the approval of the Board of Statutory Auditors, Page 11 of 23

12 replaces him by choosing the Director to be co-opted from among persons not on the same list, making sure that the person chosen belongs to the less represented gender and/or meets the Independence Requirements if, as a result of the termination, there is no longer the required minimum number of Directors The co-opted Director shall remain in office until the next Shareholders' Meeting, which will then replace the Director who is no longer available The Meeting votes on the replacement by a relative majority without any list restriction, choosing from among the candidates proposed by the members Candidates can be nominated by members who represent at least one-fifth of the number of members or who, individually or jointly, hold at least one-fifth of the share capital, as required to submit a list for the election of the Board of Directors Each member may present or participate in presenting only one candidate for each substitution; in the event of non-compliance, their signature is ignored in relation to all candidatures The candidature, signed by the person or persons presenting the candidate, must indicate the name of the candidate and has to be filed at the Company's registered offices by the deadline provided by law for the submission of lists of candidates for the election of the Board of Directors, together with any documentation and declaration required by law, and in any case: (i) the declarations from each candidate accepting their candidature and confirming, under their own responsibility, the absence of reasons for which they cannot be elected or other incompatibilities, and that they meet the requirements for appointment established by these articles of association and by current regulations and whether they meet the Independence Requirements; (ii) a full description of the personal and professional characteristics of each candidate, with an indication of the directorships and audit appointments held in other companies; (iii) information on the identity of the members presenting the candidate, indicating their percentage shareholding, to be confirmed according to the terms and methods established by current regulations The signature of each presenting member has to be authenticated by nominees of the Company, by the intermediaries authorised to keep accounts on which financial instruments are registered, or by notaries If, as a result of the termination, there is no longer the required minimum number of Directors belonging to the less represented gender and/or Directors who meet the Independence Requirements, having the required status is a condition of the candidate's eligibility Candidatures submitted without complying with the above terms and conditions will be considered as not submitted and will not be admitted to the vote If no candidature is submitted by the set deadline, the Meeting decides by a majority vote, choosing from among the candidates proposed on the spot by the members present, making sure that the person chosen belongs to the less represented gender and/or meets the Independence Requirements if the required minimum number of Directors has to be made up. 3. If the Director who has terminated was taken from the list obtaining the second highest number of votes, he is replaced by the first unelected candidate, according to the progressive numbering on the list of origin of the terminated Director, who complies with the provisions of paragraph 3.1 and belongs to the less represented gender and/or meets the Independence Requirements if the required minimum number of Directors has to be made up Within the period fixed by the Board of Directors, the candidate must file at the Company's registered offices a declaration in which he renews his acceptance of the office, confirming the absence of grounds for ineligibility or incompatibility and that the requirements prescribed for the office by legislation and by the articles of association are met, and provides information on the administration and control positions currently held in other companies. If the candidate concerned fails to do so, the next unelected candidate takes over, according to the progressive numbering of the list, and so on. Page 12 of 23
