ROZZANO, Italy, April 16 The slate of directors
proposed by a group of asset managers and international
investors for renewal of the board of Telecom Italia
obtained 50.28 percent of shareholders votes, outgoing chairman
Aldo Minucci said on Wednesday.
The list proposed by Telco, the Telefonica-led
group that owns 22.4 percent of the Italian company and is its
largest shareholder, secured 45.5 percent.
The outcome of the vote means that all the three candidates
presented by the funds and the first three of the Telco list are
elected to the new board.
Shareholders will have to hold another vote to elect seven
more directors to fill the 13 person board.
The list presented by Italian businessman Marco Fossati, who
is the second largest shareholder with a 5 percent stake held
via holding Findim, got 3.5 percent.
