The application must be submitted in writing to the Company's registered office, to the attention of the Head of Corporate Affairs, also by mail or by email to the certified email address firstname.lastname@example.org. The ownership of the shares by the applicant Shareholders and the required shareholding to request additions to the agenda must be evidenced by an ad-hoc document submitted by the intermediary and sent to the certified email address email@example.com. Additions to the list of items on the agenda are not allowed on items which the Shareholders' Meeting is required by law to debate upon the Directors’ proposal or on the basis of projects or reports drafted by them. Any additions to the agenda or the submission of additional draft resolutions on items already on the agenda will be notified in the statutory forms laid down for the notice of call, within the deadlines specified in the applicable regulations. Shareholders requesting additions to the agenda are required to draft a report stating the reasons for the draft resolutions regarding the new items they suggest, or the reasons for the additional draft resolutions on items already on the agenda. Said report must be delivered to the Board of Directors within the deadline for the submission of requests, i.e. by 26 March 2018.

The full text of the draft resolutions and the reports of the Board of Directors on the items of the agenda, the financial statements 2017 with all schedules and statements signed by the manager in charge of preparing the Company’s financial reports, the Report on the new incentive plan for Generali Group management, the annual Corporate Governance and Share Ownership Report and the Remuneration Report will be filed at the Company's registered office within the statutory period, and they will be available to the public. These documents will also be published in the corporate Web site www.generali.com in the Governance / Annual General Meeting / AGM 2018 section, together with forms which Shareholders may use to vote by proxy, as indicated below, and in the eMarket SDIR mechanism, managed by Spafid Connect S.p.A., at the Internet address www.emarketstorage.com. Information about the amount of the share capital, with details on the relevant number and categories of shares is available in the Company's website.
Those entitled to vote may ask questions about the items on the agenda also before the Shareholders' Meeting, up to the third day before the date of first call, i.e. by 14 April 2018, by delivering them to the Company’s registered office, to the attention of the Head of Corporate Affairs, or by emailing them to firstname.lastname@example.org, or to the certified e-mail address email@example.com according to the terms and conditions published in the Company's website. Questions received before the Shareholders' Meeting will be answered at the Meeting, at the latest. The Company may provide a single answer to all questions on the same topic.
Entitlement to attend the Shareholders Meeting and to exercise voting rights is proved by a certificate, which must be issued to the Company by an authorized intermediary in accordance with relevant book entries, for the party holding voting rights. The certificate is issued by the intermediary based on the evidence as of the record date (6 April 2018), namely the seventh market trading day before the date of the first call of the Shareholders' Meeting.
Debit and credit entries made after that date will not be taken into account for the purpose of establishing the entitlement to vote at the Shareholders' Meeting; therefore, those who became shareholders only after that date will not be entitled to attend or vote at the Shareholders’ Meeting. The owners of shares which have not yet been dematerialised may only attend the Shareholders' Meeting if their share certificates are first deposited with an intermediary authorized to input them into the dematerialisation system and to issue the subsequent notice.
Attendance by Shareholders of the Shareholders’ Meeting is governed by the applicable legislation and regulations, and by the provisions of the Articles of Association and the Shareholders’ Meeting Regulation in force, which are available at the Company's registred office and in the Company's website. Those holding voting rights may appoint a proxy to represent them at the Shareholders’ Meeting according to the law. In compliance with applicable legislation, shareholders may appoint the Company’s designated representative “Computershare S.p.A.” as a proxy with voting instructions, free of charge, pursuant to article 135-undecies of the CFBA. The proxy must be granted by signing the proxy form which is available on the Company’s website, in the Governance / Annual General Meeting / AGM 2018 section, from 27 March 2018 at the latest. The proxy form must be received by “Computershare S.p.A.” by the end of the second day before the actual date of the Shareholders’ Meeting, according to the procedure specified in paragraph 1 of the “Instructions for filling in and submitting the form” contained in said form.
The proxy does not cover draft resolutions for which no voting instructions have been given. The proxy and voting instructions may be revoked within the same period and with the same procedures as their conferment.
The certificate issued to the Company by the intermediary, proving that the Shareholder is entitled to attend the Shareholders’ Meeting and to exercise his/her voting rights, is also required if the designated representative is appointed as a proxy: in the absence of this certificate, the proxy form is deemed to be null and void. Alternatively, Shareholders may appoint a proxy by filling in the proxy form available on the Company’s website. The representative by proxy may deliver or send a copy of the proxy form, instead of the original, to the certified email address firstname.lastname@example.org, certifying on his/her own responsibility that the copy is a true copy of the original and the identity of the principal. Pursuant to the applicable legislation, the representative will retain the original proxy form, and keep details of any voting instructions received, for one year from the end of the Shareholders’ Meeting.
The proxy may also be granted with an electronic document signed electronically pursuant to article 21, paragraph 2, of Legislative Decree No. 82 of 7 March 2005 and sent to the certified email address email@example.com.
Interpreting service. A simultaneous interpreting service will be available from Italian into a number of foreign languages (English, French, German and Spanish) during the proceedings of the Shareholders’ Meeting. Headphones will be provided on demand at the entrance desk of the Stazione Marittima.
Live streaming service. This year for the first time, it will also be possible to follow live via streaming opening statements by the Chairman, the Group CEO and the Group CFO. This service will allow an audience more and more extensive and inclusive of share- and stakeholders to participate, also at a distance, in an important moment for company communications. This service will also be available with a live translation in the same languages quoted above. The access procedures are available on the Company’s website, in the Governance / Annual General Meeting / AGM 2018 section.
