- Consolidated and separate financial statements
- 2021 Dividend proposal (as previously announced): €0.86 per share, of which €0.43 paid as interim dividend in September 2021
San Donato Milanese (Milan), March 17, 2022 – Today, the Board of Directors, chaired by Lucia Calvosa, approved Eni’s consolidated financial statements and the separate draft financial statements of the parent company for the year ending December 31, 2021. Consolidated net profit amounted to €5,821 million and net profit of the parent company amounted to €7,675 million.
The Group consolidated result has been updated to factor in certain minor adjustments that occurred subsequently to the release of the Group 2021 preliminary results on February 18, 2022. Those adjustments are due to the finalization of the Group industrial and strategic plans and to the estimation of Eni’s share of the fourth quarter result of the JV Saipem’s following the postponement of the approval of the investee's financial statements. As a result, consolidated net profit redetermines to €5,821 million vs. €6,128 million reported in the preliminary results.
The Board of Directors intends to submit a proposal for the distribution of a cash dividend of €0.86 per share at the Annual Shareholders’ Meeting. Included in this annual distribution is the €0.43 per share interim dividend, that was paid in September 2021. The final dividend of €0.43 per share will be payable on May 25, 2022 with May 23, 2022 being the ex-dividend date.
In addition, the Board of Directors also approved the consolidated financial statements prepared in accordance with the new European provisions on the standardization of financial languages (ESEF – European Single Electronic Format regulation) providing for the adoption of the "inline XBRL" standard and the labelling of the consolidated financial statements as defined by the IFRS taxonomy adopted by ESMA.
An Annual Report on Form 20-F will be filed with the U.S. SEC and Italian market authorities by the first ten days of April 2022. This report will be disseminated via the Company’s headquarters, and on Eni's website (eni.com) and through other sources provided by the current regulation.
