The foreign individual investor can claim to the Italian tax authority a reimbursement up to 4/9 of witholding (i.e. up to 4/9 of 27%) of tax paid abroad certified by the relevant tax authorities.

1 Eni ADR equals 2 ordinary shares

An ADR is a negotiable U.S. security that represents the underlying securities (generally equity shares) of a non-U.S. company. ADRs were specifically designed to facilitate the purchase, holding and sale of non-U.S. securities by U.S. investors. ADRs are issued by a U.S. depositary bank when the underlying shares are deposited in a local custodian bank. The ADR certificate states the responsibilities of the depositary bank with respect to actions such as payment of dividends, voting at shareholder meetings, and handling of rights offerings. ADRs are treated in the same manner as other U.S. securities for clearance, transfer and ownership purposes. An intra-market transaction is settled in the same manner as any other U.S. security purchase: in U.S. dollars on the third business day after the trade date and typically through the Depository Trust Company (DTC).

A registered holder is one whose name appears on the books of the depositary as a registrar; the registered holder is considered the owner of record. A beneficial holder is one whose holdings are held in a name other than their own, such as the name of a broker, bank or nominee.

Citibank N.A. The depositary bank plays a key role in the process of issuance and cancellation of ADRs. It also maintains the ADR holder register and distributes the dividends in U.S. dollars.

A registered holder is one whose name appears on the books of the depositary as a registrar; the registered holder is considered the owner of record. A beneficial holder is one whose holdings are held in a name other than their own, such as the name of a broker, bank or nominee.

Your Eni ADR represents your ownership of shares in the company and can be held in certificate or book-entry form. If you hold your ADRs through a nominee account these will be in book-entry form and therefore you will not have an ADR certificate. For registered owners, ownership is registered by the depositary bank and is evidenced by an account statement, provided by the depositary. Registered owners may request a physical certificate issued by the Depositary Bank and receive dividends, and proxy materials directly from Citibank N.A. If you hold your ADRs in certificate form, these should be kept in a safe-deposit box or secure place. To have a physical certificate issued, please contact Citibank N.A.

If your certificate is lost, stolen, or destroyed, notify Citibank N.A.

It is important that you call Citibank N.A. when you move so that your account records can be updated and your dividend check is sent to the right address.
