The manager responsible for preparing the company's financial reports, Carlo Costa, declares, pursuant to Article 154-bis, paragraph 2, of Legislative Decree no. 58/1998, that the information contained in this press release corresponds to the document results, books and accounting records.

It should be noted that in this press release, in addition to the conventional financial indicators provided for by the IFRS, some alternative performance indicators (e.g. EBITDA) are presented in order to allow a better assessment of the economic and financial performance. These indicators are calculated according to usual market practices.


Italian Exhibition Group (IEG), listed on the MTA (screen-based stock exchange) organised and managed by Borsa Italiana S.p.A., has built up over the years, through its Rimini and Vicenza venues, a position of domestic leadership in the organisation of trade fairs and conferences, and has developed its foreign activities -also through joint ventures with global or local organisers, in the United States, United Arab Emirates and China -which have positioned it among the leading European operators in the sector.

The EBITDA is represented by the operating profit (loss) including depreciation and amortisation expense. The EBITDA is a measure defined and used by the Group to monitor and assess the operating performance of the Group, but it is not defined in the context of IFRS standards; therefore, it must not be viewed as an alternative measure for the assessment of the Group's operating profit (loss). The Company believes that the EBITDA is an important parameter for the measurement of the Group's performance as it allows to analyse the profitability of the same by eliminating the effects deriving from non-recurrent economic elements. As EBITDA is not a measure whose determination is regulated by reference accounting standards for the preparation of the Group's consolidated financial statements, the criterion applied for the determination of the EBITDA could not be consistent with that adopted by other groups and might, therefore, not be comparable to them.
