Rome, 4 April 2017 – Eni has announced that the Board of Directors today decided to renominate Director Karina Litvack to the Controls and Risk Committee (CRC).
The decision follows a request by the Milan Prosecutor's Office to dismiss a case against her alleging libel of Eni, which it concluded was groundless. The investigation had prompted the Board of Directors to remove Ms Litvak from the Controls and Risk Committee last July as a precautionary measure.
The Board of Directors welcomed the decision, which allows it once again to benefit from Director Litvack’s contribution in the Committee, and reaffirms its confidence in her integrity and its appreciation of her expertise.
Director Litvack declared herself very gratified by the Prosecutor’s decision and welcomed the Board’s approval of her reinstatement to the Committee.
Director Litvack thanks the Board of Directors, and particularly the Chairman and the CEO, for fostering a climate of mutual respect, trust and cooperation throughout this period.
The Controls and Risk Committee now comprises four Non-Executive Directors, all independent, in line with current legislation and the Italian Corporate Governance Code: Alessandro Lorenzi, Chairman, Andrea Gemma, Diva Moriani and Karina Litvack.
