Management and coordination

At its meeting of 18 January 2007, the Board of Directors decided that there were no conditions whereby Autogrill would be subject to the management and coordination of the parent, Schematrentaquattro S.r.l. (which became Schematrentaquattro S.p.A. on 18 November 2013), pursuant to Art. 2497-bisof the Italian Civil Code.

Specifically, at that meeting the Board verified that there were no indicators of effective dominant influence by the controlling shareholder, given Autogrill’s extensive managerial, organizational and administrative autonomy and the lack of instructions or directives from Schematrentaquattro that might be evidence of direction or coordination.
