Finmeccanica is Now Leonardo
From January 2017 Finmeccanica S.p.a. will be known as Leonardo S.p.a. and AgustaWestland will be Leonardo Helicopters
Finmeccanica, April 28, 2016 -
The Shareholders’ Meeting resolved to approve in Extraordinary session, with favourable votes equal to around 99.74% of the capital represented at the Meeting, the proposed amendment of the art.1 of the By-laws providing to adopt, until 31 December 2016, the Company’s name “Leonardo-Finmeccanica-Società per azioni” (abbreviated form "Leonardo S.p.a.” or "Finmeccanica S.p.a. ") and to adopt the company name "Leonardo – Società per azioni" (abbreviated form "Leonardo S.p.a.”) with effect from 1 January 2017.
The decision to put, until 31 December 2016, the new name (Leonardo) before the current name (Finmeccanica) is aimed at granting the Company a suitable time frame to ensure the required continuity mainly in relationships with foreign countries.
Please note that the new name will be effective after the inclusion of the new By-laws in the “Register of Companies” in Rome, which will be promptly disclosed to the market.
The Shareholders’ Meeting also approved the Company’s Financial Statements for 2015 and examined the Consolidated Financial Statements.
