Other commitments and risks

The other unevaluated commitments and risks are:

Commitments arising from the contract for the acquisition of Italgas and Stogit from Eni

The price determined for the acquisition of Italgas and Stogit is subject to adjustment mechanisms based on commitments made when the transaction was completed, which were also intended to apply after the date of execution.

Acquisition of Italgas

As at 31 December 2014, the remaining commitments from the aforementioned agreements concerned adjusting the Italgas purchase price to take into account part of the costs/benefits arising from the sale of property owned by Italgas that is no longer part of its operations.

Acquisition of Stogit

The purchase contract established that the Stogit acquisition price may be adjusted to take into account the different amount that might be recognised by the Authority for the tariff period 1 April 2014 – 31 March 2018, the period subsequently postponed by the Authority to the four-year period 1 January 2015 – 31 December 2018, relating to the volumes of natural gas owned by Stogit on the share transfer date and which are part of RAB assets.

With regard to these commitments, it should be noted that the storage tariffs for the year 2015, the first year in the tariff period 1 January 2015 – 31 December 2018, were approved by the Authority by means of Resolution 27/2016/R/gas, published on 29 January 2016. As contractually established, the related activities connected to the verification of the amount deriving from the price adjustment were initiated.
