In 2016, the performance of Intesa Sanpaolo ordinary shares mirrored that of banking sector indices, with a drop at the start of the year, until the first ten days of February, followed by a recovery until mid-March and a subsequent downturn, which accelerated sharply at the end of the half year, when the lowest point was reached, to then gradually recover, with a strong rise in December, which brought the shares to record a fall of 21.4% compared to the end of 2015. The price of Intesa Sanpaolo savings shares decreased by 21.2% at the end of 2016 compared to the end of 2015. The discount in relation to ordinary shares at the end of 2016 remained in line with the figure of 8% at the end of 2015.
Intesa Sanpaolo's capitalisation went down to 40.6 billion euro at the end of 2016, from 51.6 billion euro at the end of 2015.
The Board of Directors will submit a proposal to the Shareholders' Meeting to allocate a unit amount of 0.178 euro on ordinary shares and 0.189 euro on savings shares, totalling approximately 3 billion euro.
