R&S presents its survey of companies owned by Local Entities

The Mediobanca Research Area has today presented its survey on “Earnings and financial situations of leading companies owned by local entities (2012-16)”.

The survey regards 82 companies in which at least one-third of the share capital is owned by the 115 leading Italian local entities. These companies generated revenues of €32.2bn in 2016, employing approx. 150,000 staff.

The report examines the main earnings and financial trends shown by these companies in the 2012-16 period, with breakdowns by sector and geography as well. There is indepth analysis on the issue of relations with the local entity shareholders, both in terms of the transfers which they guarantee by way of payments and subsidies, and of the complex relations between creditors and debtors.

Specific sections of the analysis are devoted to the stock market trends shown by the listed companies, the number of appointments (and the related emoluments) which the local entities make to the governing bodies of the investee companies, and their corporate governance in general.

The survey is available for download from the Research Area’s website at www.mbres.it.
