Telecom Italia chief Bernabe considering resigning: source
ROME (Reuters) - Telecom Italia (TLIT.MI) Chairman Franco Bernabe is considering resigning at a board meeting scheduled for Thursday, a source close to the situation said.
"We are heading towards a resignation," the source told Reuters on Friday.
In a parliamentary hearing this week, Bernabe said Telecom Italia needed to raise fresh capital to avoid a credit rating downgrade to "junk" status and that the best way would be through a capital increase.
Bernabe has spoken out against possible plans by top shareholder Telefonica to sell some of the company's most valued assets once it gains control of its Italian rival.
