Procedure for managing, processing and communicating corporate information
Since 2004, we have adopted specific procedures for internal management and processing of confidential data, as well as for external communication of documents and information concerning the company and its subsidiaries. These provisions aim to preserve the privacy of confidential information while ensuring that disclosure of corporate information is correct, complete, appropriate, promptly released and non-selective.
The “Procedure for managing, processing and communicating corporate information of Terna S.p.A. and its subsidiaries” (the “Procedure”), valid since 2016, generally assigns responsibility for the management of confidential company information within their remit to the CEO of the company and the relative heads of the subsidiaries (Sole Director, Chief Executive, Assigned Directors/General Directors, depending on the case). The dissemination of confidential information referring to individual subsidiaries must nonetheless receive prior authorisation from Terna’s Chief Executive Officer.
Furthermore, the methods via which members of the company communicate with the press and other mass media channels are set out (financial analysts and institutional investors).
In 2016, the concept of insider information was also updated, and the procedure regarding the late disclosure of this information was more strictly defined. The relative responsibilities and obligations for reporting to CONSOB were clearly identified, as was the link with the activities pertinent to the establishment and updating of the register of persons with access to confidential information (the Insider List).
The Procedure has been updated to observe the Guidelines issued by CONSOB on the subject, along with certain organisational changes within the Terna Group.
Furthermore, in the interests of protecting corporate information and ensuring an appropriate level of data protection and cybersecurity for computer networks and systems (particularly mission-critical systems) within the Group, in 2016 we pursued various initiatives to improve IT security and mitigate cyber risk, including in regard to subsidiaries, in compliance with the provisions of the “Information Security Policy” regulatory framework and the Information Security Governance Model adopted by the Group, inspired by best practices and leading international standards.

Register of persons with access to insider information
In compliance with the European provisions on market abuse and the list of persons with access to insider information and its relative amendment, in effect from 3 July, 2016*, the company has established and regularly amended the Register of persons who, by way of their own professional activities or roles, have access, on a regular or occasional basis, to insider information.
In this respect, Terna’s Board of Directors has adopted a specific “Procedure for the retention and updating of the Register of persons with access to insider information and potential insider information”, thus updating the provisions already adopted in the past in compliance with Art. 115-bis of the Consolidated Law on Finance and the regulatory directives issued by CONSOB.
