MILAN, June 11 Italian stock market watchdog
Consob is expected to give a green light to the initial public
offerings of Italy's Fincantieri and Fineco on Thursday,
allowing the two companies to kickstart their respective
roadshows next week, sources close to the matter said.
Shipbuilder Fincantieri is looking to sell 49.9 percent of
its shares on the market through a capital increase that may be
worth 600 million euros, the latest in a string of Italian
companies now eyeing a market debut.
Fineco, the online banking unit of Italy's largest bank
UniCredit, should sell to new investors between 25 and
35 percent of its capital.
