Elliott Statement on Telecom Italia

MILAN & LONDON

Elliott Advisors (UK) Limited (“Elliott”) welcomes Vivendi’s decision to withdraw its request to shareholders to revoke five of Telecom Italia’s (“TIM”) Directors, a clear sign that Vivendi understands that there is broad support for TIM’s existing independent Board. This outcome is a victory for the Company and paves the way for stability and sustained value creation for all of TIM’s stakeholders. Elliott remains fully supportive of CEO Luigi Gubitosi, the Company’s management team and the existing independent Board, and looks forward to constructive dialogue with all stakeholders to pursue a value maximising path forward for the Company.
