You Are Here:TIM to challenge Elliott call for board changes with legal action

(Telecompaper) Telecom Italia (TIM) has announced that a meeting of its board of directors resolved to “take every legal action” to challenge a decision by statutory auditors to supplement the agenda of the upcoming Annual Shareholders’ Meeting to be held on 24 April with a motion proposed by activist fund Elliott to replace six Vivendi-nominated board members. Describing the decision as unlawful, TIM said “statutory auditors can only intervene in a situation of “inertia” (inactivity) of the administrative body in granting the supplementation request made by the shareholders and not in a situation where there is a justified decision which the Board of Statutory Auditors does not agree with,” which it said was the case in this particular instance.
