Policy for the management of periodic financial reporting on a voluntary basis
Even after Brembo’s exit from the STAR (high requirements securities) segment of Borsa Italiana, effective 3 May 2017, the Company decided that it will continue to publish — on a voluntary basis* — its interim financial reports, as previously announced, and in a manner consistent with the information made available until now, with effect from the approval of the Interim Financial Report at 31 March 2017, and until otherwise provided for by the Board of Directors.
