Decree Law 138 of 13 August 2011

Decree Law 138 (additional urgent measures for financial stability and growth) was published in the Gazzetta Ufficiale on 13 August 2011. As well as extending the scope of application of the so-called Robin Hood Tax (companies with revenues of more than 10 million which are involved in the production, transmission and dispatch, distribution or sale of electricity, or in the transportation or distribution of natural gas, are now included), Article 7 of said Decree Law imposed a rise of 4 percentage points (from 6.5% to 10.5%) in the relative IRES surtax for 2011, 2012 and 2013.Having carefully considered how the Decree Law affects the various Group companies, and pending its actual conversion into law, Hera S.p.A. has estimated that the application of the aforementioned rate increase during preparation of this half year report would result in a lower net profit at Group level, equal to around 2 million.
