• Carige, 1050 redundancies and closure of 100 branches in the industrial plan
  • Carige asks for a state guarantee for 2 billion bonds


20 September 2019 In Genoa the extraordinary shareholders' meeting of Banca Carige is held, which must vote on the € 700 million capital increase decisive in the total 900 million bailout of the Ligurian institute. The opening was opened by Carige's extraordinary commissioner, Raffaele Lener, who assumes the duties of the president. The significant shareholders in the shareholders' register are currently Malacalza Investimenti, with 27.555%, and Gabriele Volpi, with 9.087%.

Malacalza leaves the assembly
Twist in the early afternoon: Vittorio Malacalza, progenitor of the family that also holds a share in the Bank's personal capacity, left the assembly of the group, called to vote on a plan to strengthen capital. "I do what I want", he replied leaving the assembly to those who asked him if he had decided not to vote.

His name appeared on the list of subscribers to speak. Around 47% of the share capital was present at the meeting in the morning, a circumstance which had confirmed the hypothesis that the entrepreneur had presented himself, as he had said, as a "small shareholder" without having registered the shares that Malcalza Investimenti owns. In any case, the entrepreneur could always change his mind and return before the vote.

Many shareholders present
At the opening of the extraordinary assembly of Carige for the recapitalization of 700 million, over 47% of the capital was present, but the quota of Malacalza Investimenti (27.5%) was not deposited and can decide on the outcome of the assembly. Many important shareholders of the bank were present such as Aldo Spinelli and the president of the Cassa Risparmio di Lucca Foundation, Marcello Bertocchini, who, speaking to the agency at Radiocor, expressed the hope of a positive vote to increase the capital. The presence of small shareholders is very high and in the room, as guests of the Commissioners, there are the top management of the Interbank Fund, Salvatore Maccarone and Giuseppe Boccuzzi.
