The Mediobanca group’s ownership structure has changed in step with its transformation from a holding company to a specialized financial group. The historic lock-up agreement ended on 31 December 2018 (for additional details on the history of this agreement refer to the chart at the bottom of the page).

The traditional Mediobanca Shareholders’ Agreement came to an end on 31 December 2018. It was replaced on 1 January 2019 by a consultation agreement between shareholders of the Bank and representing today approx. 12.08% of the share capital. The parties in general meeting also acknowledged receipt of notice from Schematrentatre S.p.A. (Edizione), holder of 18.6 million shares (2.1% of the share capital), of its intention to withdraw from the Agreement effective from 1 January 2022. As a result of such withdrawal, and subject to further variations, the percentage syndicated to the Agreement will be approx. 10% of the company’s share capital. The Consultation Agreement is automatically renewed for a further three years until 31 December 2024.

The agreement, which makes no provision for lockup clauses or restrictions on voting in respect of the shares syndicated to it, governs the means by which the parties meet to share thoughts and observations on the Group’s performance, in accordance with the principle of full parity versus the market.

The consultation agreement between Mediobanca’s investors is considered a shareholders’ agreement pursuant to article 122, paragraph 5, letter a) of Italian Legislative Decree no. 58/98.
