The Italmobiliare Board of Directors has approved the 2017 financial statements reflecting a profit for the year of 102.1 million euro, and will ask the AGM to approve a per-share dividend of 0.55 euro (0.5 euro post-split for 2016), for a total dividend of 23.1 million euro (22.9 million euro for 2016).
“2017 saw a series of initiatives enhancing the company’s ability to create value,” said CEO Carlo Pesenti. “Through the diversification of its equity investment portfolio, Italmobiliare’s growing focus is on acting as a long-term strategic partner for businesses with significant growth potential. The investment in Tecnica Group, the agreement with Jaggaer (the world leader in eProcurement) regarding BravoSolution, together with the expansion of operations in the Private Equity segment, have increased the company's NAV; in the meantime, Italmobiliare can still count on a significant cash reserve to be assigned to new investments already under consideration. I believe the results we have achieved will meet the full satisfaction of all our shareholders, who this year, with the proposed dividend and the growth of the Italmobiliare share price, benefit from a total shareholder return of more than 11%.”
