Commitments for 2007-2009 and our achievements



Focus on growing return for our shareholdersOver the period 2007-2009 net income for the year totalling around 12.6 billion euro was recorded, against which dividends were approved for a total of 5.9 billion euro. For 2008 it was decided to strengthen the Group’s financial resources rather than allocate net income for the year, except for allocation to the savings shares as envisaged in the Articles of Association. 2009 recorded a dividend yield of 3.1% on ordinary shares and 4.7% on savings shares (in 2007 6.8% and 7.4%, respectively).
