Consolidated Law on Finance/TUF: Legislative Decree 58 of 24 February 1998, (as subsequently amended).

Prysmian S.p.A., the holding company heading one of the world's top cable industry groups, is active in the de- sign, development, manufacture, supply and installation of a wide range of cables for many different applications in the power, and telecommunications industries.

The Prysmian Group, with offices in 50 countries, 106 manufacturing plants and some 29,000 employees, is well positioned in high-tech markets by offering an extensive range of products, services, technology and know- how. In the energy sector, the Group operates in the business of underground & submarine cables and systems for power transmission and distribution, including special cables for applications in various industrial sectors, and medium & low voltage cables for construction and infrastructure. For the telecommunications sector, the Group manufactures cables & accessories for voice, video and data transmission, with a full range of optical fi- bre, optical & copper cables, and connectivity systems.

Since 3 May 2007, Prysmian securities have been listed in the Blue Chip segment of the electronically traded equities market (MTA) managed by the Italian Stock Exchange. In September 2007, the securities were admitted to the FTSE/MIB index.

Since March 2010, following the former majority shareholder's sale of its interest in the Company, the Company assumed a genuine public company structure, characterised by a broad and diversified shareholder base.

In 2011, Prysmian concluded a public purchase and exchange offer for all the ordinary shares in Draka Holding N.V., a Dutch company heading a large group of companies operating worldwide mainly in the development, manufacture and sale of power and telecom cables and systems.

In 2018, Prysmian finalised the purchase of 100% of the shares in the US company General Cable Corporation. This company heads a group formed by numerous companies that are active worldwide and mainly engaged in the development, production and sale of cables & systems for the energy & telecommunications sector.

The Company's Corporate Governance structure has been drawn from the recommendations and standards found in the "Self-Regulation Code", by which the Company abides.

The rules of Corporate Governance are a direct expression of the standards and procedures that the Company has adopted and undertakes to comply with to ensure effectiveness and transparency in all transactions.

The Company has adopted a traditional administration and control model characterised by a Shareholders' Meeting, a Board of Directors and a Board of Statutory Auditors. This Corporate Governance system is based on the core role of the Board of Directors (as the most senior body delegated to manage the Company in the interests of shareholders), on the transparency of decision-making processes, on an effective internal control system, on careful rules governing potential conflicts of interest and on appropriate standards of conduct for related party transactions.

Prysmian has implemented this system by drawing up and adopting codes, standards, rules and procedures that govern and regulate the performance of all the Company's organisational and operational bodies.

The Board of Directors has the broadest possible powers of ordinary and extraordinary administration, except for those, which by law are the exclusive prerogative of the Shareholders' Meeting. The Board of Statutory Auditors oversees compliance with the law, the articles of association and the standards of good management in the performance of company activities whilst also monitoring the adequacy of the Company's organisational structure, internal control, administrative and accounting systems.

The independent audit of the accounts is entrusted to a specialist firm registered at the Register of Auditors held by the Ministry of Economy and Finance and appointed by the Shareholders' Meeting.

Prysmian's subscribed and paid up share capital at 31 December 2019 came to Euro 26,814,424.60 divided into 268,144,246 shares, with a par value of Euro 0.10 each.

The shares cannot be split, may be freely transferred and each carries the right to one vote. Shareholders may exercise their ownership rights as provided for by the laws in force.

On 12 January 2017, the Board of Directors resolved to place the Equity linked bond issue named "Prysmian S.p.A. Euro 500 million Zero Coupon Equity Linked Bonds due 2022" maturing on 17 January 2022 and reserved for institutional investors. The bond settlement took place on 17 January 2017.

the proposal to increase the share capital in cash, payable upfront and in tranches (with option rights exclud- ed), for a maximum nominal amount of Euro 1,457,942.70. The share capital will be released in one or more issues to a maximum of 14,579,427 ordinary shares of the Company. The shares being issued will have the same characteristics as the outstanding ordinary shares, and will be exclusively and irrevocably reserved for servicing the bond issue conversion.

The bond conversion price is Euro 34.2949. On 30 May 2017, the bond issue was admitted to trade on the "Third Market" (MTF) of the Vienna Stock Exchange.

On 12 April 2018, the Company's Shareholders' Meeting approved a long-term share‑based incentive plan for the 2018-2020 period, payable to certain employees of the Prysmian Group. This will increase share capital by a maximum amount of Euro 756,281.90, and will be drawn from the "Reserve for Shares issued in accordance with Civil Code Article 2349". To service this incentive plan, it is expected that a maximum of 7,562,819 new ordinary shares will be issued, to be allotted to plan beneficiaries free of charge.

C.  SIGNIFICANT HOLDINGS IN THE SHARE CAPITAL. (PURSUANT TO ARTICLE 123-BIS, PARAGRAPH 1 LETTER C), TUF)

Details of significant holdings in Prysmian's share capital (defined as shareholdings greater than 3% of share capital) can be found in Table 1, annexed to this Report.

This information is based on the contents of the Company's Register of Shareholders and declarations received from shareholders pursuant to Article 120 of the TUF, as at 31 December 2019.

There are no mechanisms for exercising voting rights in the event of employee shareholding, when voting rights are not directly exercised by those employees.

(PURSUANT TO ARTICLES 123-BIS, PARAGRAPH 1 LETTER H), 104, PARAGRAPH 1-TER, AND 104-BIS, PARAGRAPH 1, TUF)

As concerns significant agreements as set out in Article 123-bis, paragraph 1 letter h) TUF, note the following.

Prysmian S.p.A. and the companies under its direct and indirect control are not a part of any significant agree- ments, which, automatically, come into force, are amended or are terminated in the event of a change of control of the company. In this respect, it should be pointed out that Prysmian S.p.A. is characterised by a broad and diversified shareholding structure that owns its share capital, thereby giving it the structure of a public compa- ny. Therefore, the Company is not subject to either the control, direction or coordination of other subjects, as better detailed in paragraph 2.1.

Nevertheless, it should also be noted that some agreements, mainly financial and commercial ones, which take on significance at Group level, govern the possibility of a change in control of Prysmian S.p.A., generally providing for the option of the counterparties to amend or terminate the agreement upon the occurrence of said circumstance.

The Shareholders' Meeting has not resolved to delegate to the Board of Directors the power to increase share capital pursuant to Article 2443 of the Civil Code, nor is it foreseen that the Board will be authorised to issue participating financial instruments.

On 5 June 2019, the Shareholders' Meeting authorised the Board of Directors to adopt purchase and placement plans for treasury shares, to be enacted one or more times, for a maximum number of shares possessed that shall not exceed, at any given time, the number of shares required to make up 10% of the share capital, also considering the treasury shares already held. The adoption of any plans was entrusted to the Board for a maximum period of 18 months from the date of the aforementioned resolution, that is, up to 5 December 2020.

During the Financial Year, the Board decided not to launch any share buy-back programme. This was done on the basis of authorisation issued at the shareholders' meeting of 12 April 2018, which was subsequently replaced by the previously mentioned authorisation of 5 June 2019.

During the Financial Year, the number of treasury shares held by the Company decreased due to the effects of no. 206,051 treasury shares were assigned to Prysmian Group employees who chose to participate in the discounted share purchase plan launched by the Group in 2013 (YES Plan);

For more details on the features of this plan, please see the Prysmian Group Consolidated Financial Statements ("Incentive Plan" paragraph in the Report on Operations), the information document prepared pursuant to CONSOB Issuer Regulation article 84-bis, and the Remuneration Report, a copy of which is available on the Com- pany's website www.prysmiangroup.com under The Group/governance/Remuneration policy section.

Taking into account the transactions undertaken on the Company's treasury shares, as at 31 December 2019, the Company directly and indirectly held 4,880,493 treasury shares.

The Company heads the Prysmian Group and performs direction and coordination activities for its direct or indirect subsidiaries pursuant to Article 2497 of the Civil Code.

The Company, not subject to the control, direction or coordination of other entities, is independent in the choices that determine the:

This situation is further confirmed by the fact that the Company has been structured as a public company since March 2010, which, among other things, has led to the absence of a reference shareholder.

the information required by Article 123-bis, paragraph 1, letter i) ("agreements between companies and direc- tors…which envisage indemnities in the event of resignation or dismissal without just cause, or if their employment contract should terminate as the result of a takeover bid") is to be found in the Remuneration Report and briefly summarised in paragraph 8 of this Report on the remuneration of directors;

The Company's Corporate Governance structure has been drawn from the recommendations and standards found in the Self-Regulation Code, by which the Company abides, approved by the Corporate Governance Committee in March 2006, which was then amended in March 2010 and further updated in December 2011, July 2014, July 2015 and July 2018. The foregoing Self-Regulation Code may be accessed by the public on the Corporate Governance Committee website at:

As at 31 December 2019, Prysmian directly and indirectly controlled 176 companies with registered offices in Italy and other countries. No provision of law applying to Group companies registered in states other than Italy has any influence on Prysmian's Corporate Governance structure.

Pursuant to the By-laws, the Company is managed by a Board of Directors comprised of between 7 and 13 mem- bers, who hold office for a period of no more than three financial years and are eligible for re-election. The members of the Board of Directors must meet the requirements for professionalism, integrity and independence set out by applicable law. To this end, it should be noted that the By-laws do not contain any additional provisions on the requirements necessary for the appointment of Directors.

Nonetheless, the Company does have a policy on the composition of the Board of Directors, a copy of which is available on the company website www.prysmiangroup.com under The Group/governance/shareholders meeting section. This policy provides guidelines and recommendations on features required of Company Direc- tors. For further details please refer to paragraph 4.2 of the Report.

As prescribed by the TUF, at least one of the Directors - or two if the Board of Directors has more than seven members - must meet the independence requirements applying to Statutory Auditors under Article 148, paragraph 3, TUF. The Directors' term in office shall expire on the date of the Shareholders' Meeting called to approve the financial statements for the last financial year of their term.

In compliance with the provisions of the TUF, the Company has adopted a slate voting system for the appointment of Directors, in order to allow, where possible, the election of Directors by minority shareholders. The appointment of the Board of Directors takes place on the basis of slates that can be submitted by the outgoing Board of Directors and/or by those shareholders who, alone or together with other shareholders, hold shares representing at least 2% of the share capital eligible to vote at the ordinary Shareholders' Meeting, or such lower percentage established by law or regulation. In compliance with CONSOB Resolution no. 28 of 30 January 2020, the minimum shareholding requirement for submitting the candidate slates for 2020 is 1%.

The candidate slates must be filed at the Company's registered offices at least twenty-five days before the date set for the Shareholders' Meeting. Together with each slate, within the aforementioned term, declarations by individual candidates accepting their candidacy must be filed, including any indications of their candidacy as Independent Director, and their curriculum vitae.

The slate voting system shall not apply if it is necessary to replace Directors who have ceased to hold office during their mandate.

The procedures for submitting slates, holding elections, voting and replacing directors who ceased to hold office during their mandate are in the By-laws.

Below is an extract from Article 14 of the1 By-laws concerning the methods for preparing and filing slates of candidates for the appointment of the Board of Directors members.

"... The Board of Directors shall be appointed, in compliance with currently applicable regulations in relation to the balance of genders, on the basis of slates presented in accordance with the following paragraphs. The candidates in the slate must be listed with a progressive number.

The outgoing Board of Directors is entitled to present slate as well as those shareholders who, alone or together with other shareholders, represent a total of at least 2% (two per cent) of the ordinary share capital with voting right at the ordinary Shareholders' Meeting, or representing a lower percentage where required by an applicable law or regulation in force. The ownership of numbers of shares necessary to present the slate has to be proven on the terms and in the manners set out by Law provisions. Each shareholder or shareholders belonging to the same group or who are connected, even indirectly, cannot - not even through an intermediary or trustee - present or contribute to the presentation of more than one slate. Each candidate may appear on only one slate, on pain of ineligibility. No candidate who is not in possession of the requirements set out in applicable laws may be included on the slate. The first and the second candidate on each slate must fulfil the independence requirements set out in applicable laws.

Slates which present a number of candidates equal to, or greater than, three must be composed of candidates belonging to both genders so that the less represented gender is at least one third (rounded upwards) of the candidates.

The slate of the Board of Directors, if presented, must be filed with the Company's registered office within the thirtieth day before the date set for the Shareholders' Meeting and formally published in accordance with the terms of the following paragraph.

Without prejudice to the above, the slates must be filed with the Company's registered office and published in accordance with prevailing law. Together with each slate, within the above deadline, each candidate must file a declaration confirming his/her candidacy and certifying, under his/her own liability, that there are no reasons why he/she is ineligible or incompatible for the position and that he/she meets the requirements set out in applicable laws and

this By-laws. Together with the declarations, each candidate shall file a curriculum vitae describing his personal and professional characteristics, indicating his possible candidacy as an independent Director. Each person with voting rights may only vote for one slate. Any lists which do not comply with the aforementioned requirements shall be deemed not to have been presented...".

Below is an extract from Article 14 of the By-laws concerning the appointment of the Board of Directors through slate voting and the takeover mechanism to ensure that the composition of the Board complies with the currently applicable regulations on balance of genders.

"…For the election of the Board of Directors, the following procedure shall be observed: (a) five-sixths of the Direc-

tors to be elected shall be chosen from the slate that obtains the majority of the votes cast, in the order in which they are listed on the slate; in the event of a fractional number, it shall be rounded down to the nearest whole number; (b) the remaining Directors shall be taken from the other slates; for this purpose the votes obtained by the slates shall successively be divided by one, two, three and four according to the number of Directors to be chosen. The quotients thus obtained shall be assigned to the candidates on each slate in the order specified thereon. The quotients given to each candidate on the various slates will be given in a single decreasing ranking. Those who have obtained the highest quotients shall be elected. If more than one candidate has obtained the same quotient, the candidate from the slate that has not yet elected any Directors or that has elected the smallest number of Directors, shall be elected. All this is on the understanding that at least one director shall be taken from a slate, if presented and voted, presented by shareholders who are not connected, either directly or indirectly, with those who presented or voted for the slate that obtained the majority of votes cast.

If none of such slates has yet elected a Director or each of them have elected the same number of Directors, the candidate from the slate that obtained the largest number of votes shall be elected. If the different slates have received the same number of votes and their candidates have been assigned the same quotients, a new vote shall be held by the entire Shareholders' Meeting and the candidate obtaining the simple majority of the votes shall be elected.

In addition, if the election of the candidates by the means described above does not ensure a composition of the Board of Directors which complies with the currently applicable regulations concerning the balance of genders, the candidate of the most represented gender, who is elected last in progressive order within the slate that received the highest number of votes, will be replaced by the first candidate of the less represented gender, who is not elected

from the same slate, according to the progressive order. This replacement process will be implemented until the

composition of the Board of Directors complies with the currently applicable regulations concerning the balance of genders. Finally, if this procedure does not provide the result specified above, the replacement will be implemented by means of a resolution approved by a simple majority of the Meeting, following the submission of candidates belonging to the less represented gender…".

Below is an extract from Article 14 of the By-laws describing cases where the foregoing slate voting system for appointing Directors does not apply.

"...If a single slate is presented, if no slate is presented or if the Board of Directors is not being elected in its entirety, the Shareholders' Meeting shall vote with the legal quorum required by applicable laws, in compliance with currently applicable regulations in relation to the balance of genders…

Prysmian is not subject to additional regulations (including any industry standards) as concerns the composition of the Board of Directors, representation of minority interests or number and characteristics of directors, apart from the regulations provided for by the TUF.

During the 2012 financial year, the Board of Directors approved the adoption of a plan for the succession of executive directors. To this end, the Remuneration, Nomination and Sustainability Committee was appointed to initiate and coordinate, in cooperation with the relevant Company departments, the related preliminary activity, submitting to the Board a proposal to be examined.

After completing its work, the Remuneration, Nomination and Sustainability Committee submitted a draft succession plan to the Board of Directors. This plan was conceived as a tool to foster generational change in the Company and to manage the departure from office of executive directors and top management as smoothly as possible and so as to limit any adverse effects of management changes.

The implementation process of the succession plan examined by the Board of Directors initially involved identifying which company officers and functions fell within its scope. As an outcome to this process, in addition to executive directors, also key managers and, at the Remuneration, Nomination and Sustainability Committee's recommendation, other management positions deemed of particular importance were identified as significant positions.

In order to define the criteria for identifying possible candidates to succeed to such positions, the Remunera- tion, Nomination and Sustainability Committee, with the assistance of an external consultant, then initiated a series of interviews with the individuals currently holding the offices involved and with a group of potential internal candidates for succession.

According to the succession plan, specific performance evaluation and leadership programmes shall be set out to develop and prepare internal candidates for succession. These programmes also evaluate international on- the-job and assignment rotations directed towards expanding the skillset of identified candidates, taking into account their long-term potential.

In 2015, the Prysmian Group has decided to adopt a talent evaluation process and subsequent drawing up of succession plans called "P4" (Prysmian People Performance Potential).

This process, developed thanks to the contribution of about 35 interviews with the Group's key managers that have led to the definition of talent features to Prysmian, is managed by an online tool and follows a defined schedule in three main phases:

The P4 process will be used to define a selective talent pool for succession in top positions and, on this, an additional work will be carried out by the Remuneration, Nomination and Sustainability Committee and a third party.

The Company is currently managed by a Board of twelve Directors. The three-year term of the Board of Directors in office commenced on 12 April 2018 when the Shareholders' Meeting determined that the new Board of Directors should have 12 members and appointed them using the slate voting system.

On that occasion, the following three slates of candidates were filed for the renewal of the Board of Directors:

Slate 2, submitted by the shareholder Clubtre S.p.A. owner, at the time the slate was submitted, of 8,690,312 ordinary shares equal to 3.923% of Prysmian share capital:

S.p.A. as a Kaiors International Sicav Management Company - sectors: Target Italy Alpha, Italia Pir, Risorgimento and Italia; Legal

Based on the votes obtained from the three slates submitted, all 10 candidates indicated in Slate 1 filed by the Board of Directors were appointed as Directors, voted by the majority of those with voting rights participating in the Shareholders' Meeting, equal to approximately 62% of the share capital present or represented, and the first two candidates indicated in Slate 3, voted by a minority of those with voting rights participating in the Share- holders' Meeting, equal to approximately 28.6% of the share capital present or represented. No candidate from Slate 2 was appointed, having been voted by those with voting rights who represented approximately 7.1% of the share capital present or represented.

The three-year term of the Board of Directors currently in office will expire on the date of the Shareholders' Meeting called to approve the financial statements for the year ended 31 December 2020.

The composition of the Board of Directors, as established by the Shareholders' Meeting of 12 April 2018, changed during 2018. In fact, on 25 July 2018 Mr Massimo Tononi resigned the positions he held in the Company. This resignation took effect at the conclusion of the Board of Directors' meeting held on 18 September 2018 - the same meeting in which the results of the Prysmian Group as at 30 June 2018 were approved. At that time, the Board of Directors assigned the role of Chairman of the Board of Directors to director Mr Claudio De Conto, and named and co-opted Mr Francesco Gori as a new member of the board, to serve until the first Shareholders' Meeting following his appointment, held on 5 June 2019. The same Shareholders' Meeting, on the proposal of the Board of Directors in office, also confirmed Francesco Gori as Director, who will remain in office until the expiry of the Board of Directors. On that occasion, since a director had to be replaced, the slate voting system did not apply.

The Company adopted a new policy regarding the composition of the Board of Directors and the Board of Statutory Auditors. The adoption of this policy also meets the requirements of Article 123-bis, paragraph 2, letter d-bis of the TUF, and is available on the company website www.prysmiangroup.com in The Group/governance section.

This policy was prepared by the relevant company departments under ongoing monitoring by the Remunera- tion, Nomination and Sustainability Committee, and was eventually approved by the Board of Directors on 20 December 2017.

This policy contains approaches and recommendations believed to be effective in achieving the desired out- come, which is for the Board of Directors to be composed of individuals who are capable of ensuring that they can carry out the roles assigned to them effectively. This objective can only be achieved only by intervening both in the phase of their candidacy and appointment, which involves various subjects with different tasks (in- ternal committees, Board, Shareholders' Meeting and proxy advisor), and after their appointment, during the performance of their tasks in the ongoing management of activities. To this end, the professional skills necessary to achieve this result are to be clearly defined ex-ante, with any required adjustments being made during the process to take into account any new or altered circumstances. The process of selecting candidates to fulfil board member roles, and the appointment of the same, also needs to take into account these approaches and recommendations.

Among the main topics covered by the policy, and on which the Board of Directors has expressed their recom- mendations, are:

The policy in question also describes the criteria adopted and the process followed by the Board (with support from the Remuneration, Nomination and Sustainability Committee) in the selection of individuals to be included on the board's candidate slate when the entire Board of Directors is up for renewal, if the outgoing Board decides to submit such a slate.

Commencing from the financial year after the policy implementation, annual comparisons between the policies described and the results obtained are provided based on the choices made by those entitled to appoint company boards. Yearly updates will be provided in order to take into account any changes in the composition of said company boards during their respective mandates.

The comparison between the policies proposed and the results obtained is directly contained in the policy to which reference should be made for more information (the website of the Company www.prysmiangroup.com in The Group/governance section).

The By-laws of Prysmian require the Board of Directors to be appointed in such a way as to ensure that the least represented gender obtains at least one third of its members. This principle was introduced in the By-laws in order to comply with the provisions of Law no. 120 of 12 July 2011 (which introduced paragraph 1- ter in art. 147-ter of the TUF), which envisages the application of the aforesaid principle regarding the composition of corporate bodies for three consecutive terms starting from the first renewal following the date of entry into force of the aforesaid Law no. 120/2011.

Law no. 160/2019 repealed Law no. 120/2011 envisaging that, starting from the first renewal of the bodies of listed companies after the entry into force of the law itself, the share reserved to the less represented gender will increase from the current one third to two fifths. This reserved share will apply for six consecutive terms of office.

The mandate of the Board currently in office, which is expected to expire naturally with the approval of the financial statements as at 31 December 2020, is the second to which the regulations envisaged by Law 120/2001, now repealed, applied. Taking into account the regulations applicable at the time, the Shareholders' Meeting of 12 April 2018, called to renew the Board of Directors, appointed twelve Directors, of which seven men and five women.

The number of other appointments already held by Board members can provide a good indication of the amount of time any appointee would likely have available for undertaking an appointment with Prysmian. In connection with the adoption of the above-mentioned policy regarding the composition of the Board of Directors, the Board therefore recommended that candidates for the position of director should not hold more than 4 appointments in companies listed on regulated markets at the time of candidature, where their potential appointment to Prysmian's Board is included as one of those positions for the purpose of the count.

The renewal of the Board of Directors in 2018 through list voting and the subsequent replacement of a resigning Director led to the appointment of four Directors who held this office for the first time in Prysmian. Also in order to provide these Directors with an appropriate knowledge of the Prysmian Group's business, of its corporate dynamics and of the Company's self-regulatory and legislative framework, a meeting was organised with the Group's top management, representing both business and corporate departments. At that meeting, each manager presented and described the company sector he or she is in charge of.

Also in view of the positive feedback on similar initiatives in the past, the Chairman continued to support the induction meeting aimed at increasing the Directors' and Statutory Auditors' awareness of the Prysmian Group's business. During the Financial Year, two such meetings were held, respectively, which included, a visit to the research and development laboratories in Milan and the visit to the Prysmian Group's facility in Pozzuoli - loc. Arco Felice - and it was arranged for the Directors and Statutory Auditors to attend meetings aimed to expand their knowledge of the business sectors in which the Prysmian Group operates. These meetings focus on themes of a strategic nature, which will also assist with the upcoming assessments regarding appropriate risk management principles.

In 2019, the Board of Directors held 9 meetings, lasting an average of three hours each. The four main meetings scheduled in the Financial Year's events calendar, lasted an average of four hours each. The directors who were in office during those meetings had a 95% attendance average, while the Statutory Auditors reported 92% at- tendance.

As provided for by current regulations, the Company published, in its 13 January 2020 press release, the Board meeting dates scheduled for 2020 for examination of financial results, as set out below:

5 March 2020: consolidated financial statements of the Prysmian Group, draft statutory financial statements of Prysmian S.p.A. for the financial year as at 31 December 2019;

With regard to the dates listed above, legislative decree 25/2016 implementing the Transparency directive should also be considered. This decree removed the obligation for issuers to publish the interim reports on operations and allowed CONSOB to request under regulation any required information in addition to the annual and half-year reports. The Company has confirmed their desire to approve and publish supplementary financial reports in addition to the annual and half-year financial reports. These supplementary reports will be released at the close of the first and third quarters (31 March and 30 September) of each financial year, and will be made available to the public at a time and with contents which are consistent with the provisions in force before the obligation to publish interim reports on operations was removed. In particular, the review and distribution of supplementary reports, and that of related documentation, is to take place within 45 days from the close of the period to which they refer.

Company management is the sole responsibility of Directors, who perform the required operations to implement its corporate purpose. The Board of Directors has the broadest possible powers of ordinary and extraordinary administration of the Company, except for those, which by law are the exclusive prerogative of the Share- holders' Meeting. The Board of Directors also has responsibility for passing resolutions that require notarisation, regarding: (I) mergers or demergers in the cases provided for by Articles 2505, 2505-bis and 2506-ter of the Civil Code; (ii) transfer of the registered offices within the national territory; (iii) opening or closing secondary offic- es; (iv) indication of which Directors may represent the Company; (v) reductions in share capital following shareholder withdrawal; and (vi) updating the Company By-laws to comply with legislation (Article 17 of the By-laws).

For Board resolutions to be valid, a majority of the Directors in office must be present and the resolutions must be passed by a majority vote of the Directors present. In the case of a tie, the Chairman's voted position shall prevail. The Directors cannot delegate the exercise of their vote (Article 18 of the By-laws).

The Board of Directors may delegate all or part of its powers, within legal limits, to one or more of its members, who will thus become Managing Directors, and/or to an Executive Committee, and may set limits on the delega- tion. Nonetheless, the Board of Directors shall have exclusive authority for the following issues, which may not be delegated pursuant to the By-laws:

The Board of Directors may appoint general directors, whose delegated powers must be established. In addi- tion, subject to mandatory consultation with the Board of Statutory Auditors and based on minimum requirements set by the By-laws, the Board of Directors shall appoint the manager responsible for preparing corporate accounting documents, setting the term of the appointment, duties and powers in compliance with current regulations (Article 19 of the By-laws).

The Board of Directors may also establish committees with powers to advise and make proposals, with responsibility for specific issues, and may determine their composition and responsibilities (Article 19 of the By-laws).

The Board of Directors has adopted by resolution certain quantitative and qualitative parameters, differentiated by type or category of transaction, to determine which transactions, apart from intra-group transactions, shall be considered of significant economic, strategic, equity or financial impact and, hence, subject to specific prior examination by the Board, even when the transaction is undertaken by a Group subsidiary.

The types of transactions, which, having passed certain quantitative and qualitative parameters, shall be subject to prior examination by the Board, are mainly real estate, M&A (purchase and sale of holdings, joint venture agreements), and financial transactions (issue of guarantees, financial instruments and taking out loans).

The Chairman shall call meetings of the Board of Directors whenever he considers it to be in the interests of the Company, or when he receives a written request from one or more Executive Directors, or from at least three serving Directors, or from the Board of Statutory Auditors or from one of its standing members in the cases provided for by the law (Article 16 of the By-laws).

In line with the recommendations of Article 1 of the Code, the Board has a central role in the Company's Corporate Governance system. The Board of Directors meets regularly and is organised and operates to ensure the effective and efficient performance of its functions. The Chairman of the Board of Directors, with the assistance of the Board Secretary, shall inform the Directors and Statutory Auditors in advance of the issues to be discussed at board meetings and, if required, shall ensure that appropriate information is provided in advance on the matters to be examined (Article 16 of the By-laws).

The Board adopted a modern IT solution that makes it possible to manage documents useful for the discussion of topics or for their approval in the context of meetings of the Board of Directors or Committees. Through the devices commonly used by Directors and Statutory Auditors, the use of documents is made available, without the use of paper. The system adopted allows a security in the sharing of documents, information and traceability of their use. The documents are made available to Directors and Statutory Auditors, at different times depending on the topics to be discussed and generally not less than two days before the meeting, except for urgent situations or when special confidentiality is required. Under these circumstances, complete discussion of the issues shall be nevertheless ensured.

The managers responsible for preparing corporate accounting documents attend the Board of Directors meetings that address and discuss matters falling under their remit. The Chief Executive Officer notifies the department heads that they shall or may be called on to participate in Board meetings when issues falling within their responsibility are discussed, so that they can give their contribution. For the most part, the following department heads are called on to provide in-depth insights during Board meetings: the Compliance and Audit Officer, to discuss internal control and risk management system issues, the Head of Human Resources and Organisation, to discuss remuneration policy and incentive plan issues, as well as - when it's necessary to detail specific topics for discussion or simply to provide assistance for the analysis of information the Board already has - the heads of the business areas and corporate departments, who do not already participate in the meetings as Directors.

During the meeting called to examine the draft financial statements, the Board of Directors positively assessed the adequacy of the organisational, administrative and general accounting structure of the Company, also with reference to the internal control system and the management of conflicts of interest. These conclusions were supported by positive opinions issued by the Board's own internal committees, which had previously carried out the same assessments within their own spheres of responsibility.

As far as self-assessment activities are concerned, usually - at least once in the course of the Board's three-year term - the Board resorts to a leading consultancy company which carries out, amongst other things, professional analyses on the structure, functioning and efficiency of the Board of Directors and their committees for listed companies.

Such practices are in line with recommendations expressed by the Directors over the years, who deemed it beneficial to carry out this type of assessment with the assistance of an advisor after the first year of each term in office. The purpose of this is to allow consultants to gather opinions and recommendations from any new direc- tors, once those directors have gained sufficient knowledge of the Company, the Group and the functioning of the Board and its Committees.

During the current three-year term, which began on 12 April 2018 with the renewal of the Board of Directors, the Remuneration, Nomination and Sustainability Committee decided to propose to the Board of Directors that this self-assessment be carried out with the assistance of an advisor in order to confirm the aforesaid practices. For the purpose of identifying such an advisor, the relevant business areas have contacted leading consulting firms. From among these, the Committee has selected the two proposals that they consider to be the best, to be presented for consideration by the Board. The advisor finally chosen by the Board provided assistance in the self-assessment carried out by the Board during the first half of the Financial Year.

The self-assessment process was carried out through individual interviews with the consultant in charge, based on a questionnaire prepared by the latter, revised and agreed in advance with the Chairman, the Chairman of the Remuneration, Nomination and Sustainability Committee and the Board Secretary.

The questionnaire was sent to the Directors before the interviews and completed during the meeting in person.

The consultant also met (without submitting a questionnaire) with the Chairman of the Board of Statutory Auditors.

All analyses and comments were processed by the consultant in charge in a completely anonymous and confidential manner so as not to make the author recognisable. This is in order to facilitate the free expression of each Director's thought, without any conditioning that might have existed, for example, during board meetings.

At the end of the process, a report was presented to the Board, during the meeting called to examine the results for the first quarter of the Financial Year, containing the areas for improvement and the actions proposed (oper- ational follow-up) to achieve it.

The areas that could be improved as a result of the activity were the document management of Board meetings and the holding of informal training meetings for the Directors. With regard to the actions taken in this regard, please refer to the previous paragraph and to paragraph 4.2 ("induction programme") of the Report, respectively.

Finally, the Board expressed satisfaction with the positive outcomes from the self-assessment process and, in acknowledging the overall outcome of the Directors' assessments, deemed in conclusion that the size, composition and operation of the Board of Directors and of its committees were appropriate.

Considering the positive feedback received during the Financial Year, the Remuneration, Nomination and Sustainability Committee decided to propose to the Board of Directors to carry out the self-assessment activity with the support of an advisor also during the current year. This proposal was also motivated by the possibility of using the self-assessment activity in view of the renewal of the Board of Directors scheduled for 2021. In fact, the self-assessment may lead the Board to have useful indications to identify the characteristics of the candidates to be included in the lists submitted by those entitled to do so for the next renewal of the Board, also forming a guidance in favour of these subjects.

At the only meeting of the Board of Directors held prior to the one that approved the Report, the Board accepted the proposal of the Remuneration, Nomination and Sustainability Committee and instructed the Committee, with the support of the competent corporate functions, to select leading consulting firms from among which to identify the proposals deemed best to be submitted to the Board.

The Shareholders' Meeting that appointed the Board of Directors in office on the date of the Report was not called upon to authorise, in general terms and as a preventive measure, waivers to the prohibition of competition provided for by Article 2390 of the Civil Code. Nonetheless, when the candidacies were submitted for renewal of the Board of Directors, each of the Directors in office confirmed that the conditions set out in Article 2390 of the Civil Code did not apply to him/her.

As concerns the analysis of the adequacy of Prysmian's organisation, administrative and accounting structure, including its strategically significant subsidiaries, with particular reference to the internal control and risk management system, see paragraph 10 of the Report.

The Directors Valerio Battista and Pier Francesco Facchini have been vested with executive powers by the Board of Directors.

The Board of Directors, during the meeting of 12 April 2018, conferred the office of Chief Executive Officer and General Manager on Valerio Battista, and delegated him all authority and powers of ordinary administration, legal representation and representation towards third parties, as needed or useful to carry out the Company's business, including the following powers:

stipulate, with all appropriate clauses, modify, terminate, transfer and withdraw from any contract or any other deed with direct or indirect subsidiaries;

buy, exchange and sell in the name and on behalf of the Company and also on behalf of third parties, and transfer to existing or new companies, real estate of any kind or nature wherever located, up to a maximum limit of Euro 10,000,000 (ten million euros) per transaction;

buy, exchange and sell in the name and on behalf of the Company and also on behalf of third parties, and transfer to existing or new companies, assets of any kind or nature wherever located, up to a maximum limit of Euro 10,000,000 (ten million euros) per transaction;

apply for loans, financing, the opening of credit lines, in any form from banks, finance companies and institu- tions, parent companies and subsidiaries, up to a maximum limit of Euro 100,000,000 (one hundred million euros) per transaction;

apply for the issue or grant of guarantees, also in the interests of subsidiaries, from banks, finance companies and institutions, up to a maximum limit of Euro 100,000,000 (one hundred million euros) per transaction;

grant loans or credit lines on behalf of and/or in the interests of any investee company, up to a limit of Euro 5,000,000 (five million euros) per transaction;

issue bonds, guarantees etc., up to a maximum limit of Euro 50,000,000 (fifty million euros) per transaction, in relation to contracts regarding the "turnkey" supply of goods or products by the Company or by its subsidiaries and associates, together with goods, products or services supplied by third parties;

subscribe, issue, purchase, modify, sell, repay and transfer financial instruments, bonds etc., up to a maximum limit of Euro 10,000,000 (ten million euros) per transaction;

Mr. Battista qualifies as head of Company management (Chief Executive Officer), as described in the Self-Regulation Code. It should be noted in this regard that no interlocking directorate situation exists because Mr. Battista does not hold any directorships in any other issuer whose Chief Executive Officer is a director at Prysmian S.p.A.

At its meeting on 12 April 2018, the Board of Directors also appointed the Director Pier Francesco Facchini as Chief Financial Officer, and assigned him the following authority and powers:

The Board Chairman has no executive powers, nor does he have a specific role in the Company's strategic plan- ning, nor is he a controlling shareholder of the Company.

The Board of Directors, through the Chief Executive Officer, reports to the Board of Statutory Auditors on the matters set out in Article 150, paragraph 1, TUF; this reporting obligation has always been fulfilled during the Board of Directors meetings.

Pursuant to Article 19 of the By-laws, the Chief Executive Officer also reports to the Board of Directors and the Board of Statutory Auditors on the activities undertaken, the general performance of the business, its prospects and the most significant transactions by the Company or its subsidiaries in terms of their impact on results of operations and financial position; in particular, the Chief Executive Officer reports on transactions in which the companies have an interest, on their own behalf or on behalf of third parties or which are influenced by the entity that exercises direction and coordination. Reporting to the Board of Directors and the Board of Statutory Auditors has always taken place during Board of Directors' meetings.

As required by law, as well as by the Code, the Company has established a procedure, which may be viewed on the Company website www.prysmiangroup.com under The Group/governance section, which defines the parties and transactions requiring reporting to the Company's Board of Directors and Board of Statutory Auditors and the steps and timing that this reporting must follow. In particular, the procedure defines (i) the type, frequency and contents of the reported information, and (ii) how it is to be obtained.

The Chief Executive Officer, at every Board meeting and regardless of how much time has elapsed since the previous meeting, reports to the Board of Directors and to the Board of Statutory Auditors on the work and principal transactions undertaken by the Company and its subsidiaries that do not require prior Board approval.

Because of the positions they held within the Company and the Group during the Financial Year, Valerio Battista, Massimo Battaini, Pier Francesco Facchini and Fabio Ignazio Romeo are considered Executive Directors.

Valerio Battista is an executive director by virtue of his appointments as Chief Executive Officer and General Manager of the Company (see section 4.4), and he is responsible for the management of the Company.

Pier Francesco Facchini is an executive director by virtue of his appointment as Chief Financial Officer of the Company (see section 4.4 above)

Fabio Ignazio Romeo is an executive director because of his appointment as Head of Corporate Strategy and Development of the Prysmian Group.

Lastly, Massimo Battaini is an executive director because of his appointment as North America CEO of the Group.

Eight of the twelve Directors appointed by the Shareholders' Meeting of 12 April 2018 stated, when presenting their candidacy for the renewal of the Board of Directors, that they possessed the independence requirements under Article 148, paragraph 3, TUF. Seven of them also stated that they were independent pursuant to the Code's 3.C.1. and 3.C.2. applicability criteria.

At the meeting of the Board of Directors immediately following the aforementioned Shareholders' Meeting, the Board made an assessment of, based on (i) the statements provided when presenting their candidacy, (ii) the information provided verbally by the parties involved during the Board meeting and (iii) the additional information available to the Company, the relationships that may or appear to compromise the independence of judgement of the Directors declaring themselves independent.

The Directors declaring themselves independent and attending the meeting were expressly asked to report any changes that occurred, after submitting their candidacy, which could have altered their independent position. The independent Directors were also asked to report to the Board any relationships with the Company, or persons related to it, to enable the Board to assess whether such relationships could potentially affect the independence of their judgement.

Upon completion of this verification process, the Board deemed that the Directors Paolo Amato, Joyce Victoria Bigio, Maria Elena Cappello, Claudio De Conto, Monica de Virgiliis, Mimi Kung and Maria Letizia Mariani did possess those requirements making them independent, pursuant to Article 148, paragraph 3, TUF and to the Code's 3.C.1. and 3.C.2. applicability criteria.

The Board also deemed that Massimo Tononi possesses the independence requirements pursuant to Article 148, paragraph 3, TUF only. Having actually held the office of Chair of the Board of Directors over the previous three- year term and, having also been confirmed in that office for the three-year term that begun during the Financial Year, Mr. Tononi was considered a "key representative of the Company" pursuant to the 3.C.2 applicability criteria of the Code. Therefore, he was not deemed to be in possession of the independence requirements provided for by the Code.

During the meeting of 18 September 2018, the Board of Directors acknowledged the resignation tendered by Mr Massimo Tononi on 25 July 2018 (with effect from the end of the same meeting) and awarded the post of Chairman of the Board of Directors to board member Mr Claudio De Conto. From that point forwards Mr De Conto was no longer deemed to meet the independence requirements envisaged by the Code, while conversely, he continued to meet the requirements of an Independent Non-Executive Director pursuant to the TUF. During the same meet- ing, the Board co-opted a new member of the Board of Directors, Mr Francesco Gori. From that point forwards Mr De Conto was no longer deemed to meet the independence requirements envisaged by the Code, while converse- ly, he continued to meet the requirements of an Independent Non-Executive Director pursuant to the TUF.

The Board subsequently confirmed that Mr. Gori met the independence requirements, both pursuant to the TUF and the Code, once he was confirmed as Director by the Shareholders' Meeting of 5 June 2019.

In evaluating the independence of a Director, and in addition to meeting the requirements as per TUF article 148, paragraph 3 and the Code's 3.C.1. and 3.C.2. applicability criteria (which do not provide for any reversal of applicability), Prysmian has established that a director shall not normally be considered independent if, during the previous financial year, he has had commercial, financial or professional dealings with the Company, one of its subsidiaries, or with any of their principal representatives or with an entity that controls the Company, or with its key representatives, if the total value of such dealings is greater than:

5% of the turnover of the legal entity, organisation or professional firm, of which the director has control or is a key representative or partner, or

5% of the annual personal income of the director or of the annual turnover generated directly by the director as part of his/her activity at the legal entity, organisation or professional firm, of which the director has control or is a key representative or partner.

In addition, all Independent Directors have also undertaken to promptly inform the Board of Directors of the occurrence of any circumstance that might result in a breach of the requirement, without, however, undertaking to resign if such a circumstance does occur . Annually, at the meeting to approve the Report, the Board of Directors invites the directors concerned to reconfirm their independence and examines any additional information they may have provided or of which the Board has become aware.

The Board of Statutory Auditors has ensured the proper application of the criteria and verification procedures adopted by the Board for its annual assessment of the independence of its members, and noted its findings in its report to the Shareholders' Meeting.

In this regard, an extract of the Board of Statutory Auditors' report of 5 June 2019, drafted pursuant to Article 153 of the TUF and Article 2429 of the Civil Code is reported below:

1.  In the performance of its supervision and control activities, the Board of Statutory Auditors acknowledges that: […]

g)  it has supervised the procedures used for implementation of the Self-Regulation Code for listed companies, adopted by the Company, as illustrated in the Report on Corporate Governance and Ownership Structure approved

by the Board of Directors on 5 March 2019. The Board of Statutory Auditors has also verified the proper application of the verification criteria and procedures adopted by the Board of Directors to assess the independence of its mem- bers. In addition, the Board of Statutory Auditors has verified its own members' compliance with independence and professionalism criteria pursuant to the relevant legislation;

During the Financial Year, two meetings with only those directors in possession of the independence requirements under TUF were held. During those meetings, the independent directors discussed topics to be subsequently dealt with during the Board of Directors' meetings, including such items as the outcomes from the self-assessment process, and the timing and method by which the documentation related to items on the agenda of Board of Directors' meetings shall be delivered to the Directors and Statutory Auditors.

As the circumstances do not apply to the Company under which the Code recommends an issuer to appoint a Lead Independent Director and since no such figure has been requested by the Independent Directors, the Board did not select a Lead Independent Director from among its independent members.

Prysmian adopted a set of procedures for internal management and external disclosure of documents and information about the Company, especially concerning confidential information. These procedures were reviewed in order to align the content with the innovations introduced by Regulation (EU) No. 596/2014 ("MAR") on the harmonisation of Market Abuse legislation. The parts of greatest relevance in this regulation became applicable on 3 July 2016. The procedures define how information that can assume a confidential nature should be managed and identify the company managers who will manage and coordinate these information flows through their disclosure to the market. It includes situations where it was initially decided to defer disclosure under the circumstances as required by the applicable legislation. These procedures may be found on the Company website www.prysmiangroup.com under The Group/governance section.

In compliance with Article 115-bis of the TUF, the Company has set up an Insider Register of those persons with access to confidential information.

Entries and updates to the insider Register are defined according to the dedicated procedure, which is also aligned with the innovations of Regulation (EU) No. 596/2014 ("MAR") on the harmonisation of Market Abuse legislation. Registry entries can be made on a permanent or interim basis and the procedures identify which individuals are responsible for managing and administering the permanent register, along with the individual projects that are created in the register whenever it is decided to delay communication of confidential information to the market.

The Company has adopted a procedure ("Code of Conduct - Internal Dealing"), aimed at governing the reporting obligations for transactions concerning Prysmian's shares, debt securities or derivatives, or other financial instruments which are linked to the Company, where those transactions are undertaken by persons who, because of their position, have access to relevant information (so-called Internal Dealing). This procedure identifies so- called "Relevant Persons" as (i) the Company's directors, (ii) the Company's statutory auditors, and (iii) persons with management responsibilities and managers who have regular access to price sensitive information and have the power to take management decisions which can influence the Company's development and future prospects (so-called "Key Managers") who the Board of Directors identifies by name. Other relevant persons are

The above "Code of Conduct - Internal Dealing" also sets out blackout periods during which Relevant Persons and Persons Closely Associated with Relevant Persons cannot undertake operations which are subject to disclosure

requirements. The blackout periods are thirty calendar days preceding the public announcement of approval of the Company's draft annual financial statements, half-year financial report, and each of the interim reports as at 31 March and 30 September (where scheduled for approval and publication).

However, the Board of Directors, or, in urgent cases, the Chief Executive Officer, has the power to (i) identify further periods or circumstances in which the performance of transactions by Relevant Persons and Persons Closely Associated with Relevant Persons shall be subject to limits or conditions, and (ii) under certain circumstances, allow a Relevant Person and a Person Closely Associated with Relevant Persons to carry out the transaction in periods in which the ban would otherwise be in force.

To date, neither the Board of Directors nor the Chief Executive Officer has made any exceptions to the ban on dealing during blackout periods.

The Remuneration, Nomination and Sustainability Committee jointly performs the functions that the Code assigns to the nomination committee and the remuneration committee, respectively, and provides a supervisory function regarding sustainability issues with the task of reviewing the annual sustainability report. This Committee was formed in compliance with the stricter rules set out for the remuneration committee's composition as it has only Independent Non-Executive members pursuant to the TUF.

The combination of the functions of the nomination and the remuneration committees, respectively, into one single committee arose from the affinity of some of the competencies required for the two bodies and from the positive experience gained on previous occasions, ensuring efficiency in the discussion of the relevant issues with the elimination of the risk of any possible failure of coordination.

The Board of Directors has not reserved the duties and functions that the Code attributes to the committees; said duties and functions were distributed among the committees only in compliance with the Code's recom- mendations.

The composition, functions, duties, resources and activities of the above-mentioned Committees are described in the subsequent sections of this Report.

The Board of Directors, in view of the growing attention to Environmental, Social and Governance issues and the significant commitment involved in supervising these issues, at the Chairman's suggestion, decided on 12 No- vember 2019 to establish an internal "Sustainability Committee" to which the tasks and functions in the above matters assigned to the Remuneration, Nomination and Sustainability Committee will be transferred. However, in order to allow the Board committees in office to conclude the activities related to the Financial Year, the Board also established that the Sustainability Committee will be operational as from the date of the meeting of the Board of Directors that will approve the draft financial statements as at 31 December 2019 and that at the same time it will appoint its members and establish the Committee's operating rules.

The Board of Directors has set up an internal Remuneration, Nomination and Sustainability Committee with the task of providing advice and proposals on (i) the remuneration of directors and senior management, (ii) the ap- pointment/replacement of independent directors, (iii) the assessment of the size and composition of the Board itself, and (iv) the supervision of sustainability issues related to business operations and stakeholder relationship dynamics, whilst also approving provisions for this committee's operation. The provisions are available on the Company website www.prysmiangroup.com under The Group/governance/committees section.

COMPOSITION AND OPERATION OF THE REMUNERATION, NOMINATION AND SUSTAINABILITY COMMITTEE (PURSUANT TO ARTICLE 123-BIS, PARAGRAPH 2, LETTER D), TUF)

Pursuant to the committee's own regulations, the Remuneration, Nomination and Sustainability Committee must be composed solely of non-executive directors, of whom at least two shall be independent.

During the Financial Year, the composition of the Remuneration, Nomination and Sustainability Committee did not change and included:

From the end of reporting period to the date on which this Report was approved, the composition of the Committee did not undergo any further changes. In the light of the already mentioned establishment of a new committee to which the tasks and prerogatives regarding sustainability will be transferred, it is however possible that the current composition of the Remuneration, Nomination and Sustainability Committee may change during the current year.

The role of Chairman of the Committee, whose duties are essentially the coordination of the committee's work, was assigned to one of the members of said Committee by the Board of Directors. During the appointment pro- cess, the Board also verified that each of the members possessed appropriate knowledge and experience in finance and remuneration policy.

The Head of Group Human Resources and Organisation shall act as Committee Secretary, who will draft the meeting minutes, which, after being shared among the Committee members, shall be signed by the Chairman and filed in the Company records.

As stated in its regulation, the Remuneration, Nomination and Sustainability Committee has the following du- ties:

well as, at the instruction of the Chairman and of the Chief Executive Officer, to determine the criteria for the remuneration of the Company's senior management in ways that are able to attract, retain and motivate persons with a level of expertise and experience satisfying the Company's needs and are consistent with the remuneration policy. The Committee may also make proposals and express opinions on the portion of remuneration of Executive Directors, Directors with particular responsibilities and Key Managers previously indicated by the Board of Directors, which is linked to the financial results of the Company and Group and/ or possibly to the achievement of specific targets previously defined by the Board of Directors, and on the setting of such performance targets. In this case, the criteria for determining the amount of compensation shall be fixed from year to year in relation to the strategic objectives determined from time to time by the Board of Directors;

The Committee is permitted to make use of internal or external consultants, to obtain information on market standards for remuneration systems.

During the Financial Year, the Committee held 14 meetings, lasting an average of one hour and forty minutes each, during which it:

The average attendance of Committee members at meetings was 100%. These meetings were also attended by the Head of Group Human Resources and Organisation in his role as Committee Secretary. The Board of Statutory Auditors, invited to participate in the Committee meetings, attended them all.

No Directors participated in the Committee meetings when proposals on their remuneration for submission to the Board were examined.

The Committee was provided access to corporate information and received the benefit of assistance from corporate functions, as required for the performance of its duties. In addition, the Committee did not deem it necessary to use additional consultants to those identified from time to time by the relevant company departments for assistance with the preparation of documents and reports in support of the topics discussed during the Com- mittee's meetings and later brought to the attention of the Board.

In the period from the end of the Financial Year until the Board's first meeting during which the Report was ap- proved, three Committee meetings were held. Even though a schedule of meetings has not been set before- hand, it is envisaged that the Committee shall hold a meeting before each Board of Directors' meeting in which the remuneration, director appointments or assessments of the size and composition of the Board of Directors, and/or sustainability topics will be on the agenda.

For additional information about the Remuneration, Nomination and Sustainability Committee, see the Remuneration Report, published pursuant to Article 123-ter TUF, which may be found on the Company website www.prysmiangroup.com under The Group/governance/remuneration policy section.

As recommended by the Self-Regulation Code, a significant part of the remuneration of Executive Directors and Key Managers is linked to the Company's financial results and/or the achievement of specific objectives.

Executive Directors and Key Managers are beneficiaries of a long-termshare-based incentive plan. They were also given the opportunity to join the three-year discounted share purchase plan (YES Plan) open to Prysmian Group employees, introduced by the Company in 2013 and renewed during 2016. The plan allows them to buy Prysmian shares at a discount, paid in the form of treasury shares, of 1% of the purchase price, with their annual investment capped at Euro 13,335. For details on the aforementioned plans, see the Prysmian Group Consolidated Financial Statements ("Incentive Plans" paragraph of the Report on Operations), the relevant information documents drawn up pursuant to Article 84-bis of the CONSOB Issuer Regulation and the Remuneration Report, published on the Company website www.prysmiangroup.com under The Group/governance/remuneration policy section.

The remuneration of Directors is determined pursuant to Article 2389 of the Civil Code by the Shareholders' Meeting, which may also establish an overall amount for the remuneration due to Directors, including those with particular responsibilities. In this case, the Board of Directors, having examined the Remuneration, Nomination and Sustainability Committee's proposals and after consulting the Board of Statutory Auditors, shall divide the overall amount determined by the Shareholders' Meeting among its members. Directors are eligible for reimbursement of the expenses incurred to carry out their duties (Article 14 of the By-laws).

The Shareholders' Meeting of 12 April 2018 awarded the Board, in addi tion to reimbursement of expenses incurred in the interests of the Company, an overall gross fee of Euro 600,000 for each of the years it remains in office, to be divided on a pro-rata basis according to the portion of the year that the Directors serve. The Share- holders' Meeting also granted the Board of Directors the authority to decide how such amount should be allocated to all or to just some of the individual directors, taking into account the specific responsibilities of each.

The Board of Directors accepted the recommendation presented by the Remuneration, Nomination and Sustainability Committee, establishing, for the second year of the mandate, the following allocation of the remu- neration:

For additional information about the Directors and Key Managers remuneration policy, see the Remuneration Report published pursuant to Article 123-ter of the TUF.

INDEMNITY OF DIRECTORS IN THE EVENT OF RESIGNATION, DISMISSAL WITHOUT JUST CAUSE OR TERMINATION FOLLOWING A PUBLIC TENDER OFFER (PURSUANT TO ARTICLE 123-BIS, PARAGRAPH 1 LETTER I), TUF)

As concerns the agreements between the Company and the directors, which involve indemnity in the cases provided for by Article 123-bis, paragraph 1, letter i), TUF, it should be noted that there are no prior agreements concerning early termination of office or employment that are not in compliance with the Code and corporate governance best practices, the law and local collective agreements, and in any event including compensation

greater than two years' salary. In compliance with these provisions, agreements were made that provide for indemnity in case of early termination of employment of Valerio Battista, Chief Executive Officer and General Manager, employee of Prysmian S.p.A., with a permanent contract as a manager since 1 June 2006, and of Pier Francesco Facchini, Director and Chief Financial Officer, employee of Prysmian S.p.A., with a permanent contract as a manager since 8 January 2007.

In the event of early termination of employment of the above Executive Directors, who are also Company em- ployees, payment of the above indemnities is not explicitly excluded when employment is terminated for objectively poor performance since these indemnities replace those provided for under the national collective labour agreement for senior managers of companies producing goods and services, which would be payable even when termination is due to poor performance.

Apart from the foregoing, there are no other agreements between the Company and the directors, in the cases provided for by Article 123-bis, paragraph 1, letter i), TUF.

The Board of Directors set up a Control and Risks Committee, with the functions of providing advice and proposals to the same Board.

The operation of the Control and Risks Committee is governed by a set of rules, which may be found on the Company website www.prysmiangroup.com under The Group/governance/committees section.

COMPOSITION AND OPERATION OF THE CONTROL AND RISKS COMMITTEE (PURSUANT TO ARTICLE 123-BIS, PARAGRAPH 2, LETTER D), TUF)

Pursuant to the committee's own regulations, the Control and Risks Committee must be composed exclusively of non-executive directors, of whom at least two must be independent.

During the Financial Year, the composition of the Control and Risks Committee did not change and included:

From the end of reporting period to the date on which this Report was approved, the composition of the Committee did not undergo any further changes.

The role of Chairman of the Committee, whose duties are essentially the coordination of the committee's work, was assigned to one of the members of said Committee by the Board of Directors. During the appointment process, the Board also verified that each of the members possessed adequate experience in accounting and finance or risk management.

The Audit & Compliance Officer shall act as Committee Secretary, who will draft the meeting minutes, which, after being shared among the committee members, shall be filed in the Company records.

Upon Legislative Decree 39/2010 becoming effective, the Board of Statutory Auditors was identified as the "in- ternal control and financial audit committee", meaning that some of the oversight duties belonging to the Control and Risks Committee were then shared with the Board of Statutory Auditors and conducted in a coordinated fashion.

The Board of Directors has assigned the Control and Risks Committee the duties and functions required of independent directors by the legal provisions concerning related party transactions and, specifically, the task of examining the Company's procedures prior to their adoption (and any future amendments to the same) and of implementing them.

During the Financial Year, the Control and Risks Committee held 12 meetings, lasting an average of 2 hours and 22 minutes each (i.e. 31 January, 25 February, 5 March, 21 March, 17 April, 13 May, 10 June, 16 July, 1 August, 1 Oc- tober, 12 November and 11 December).

the consolidated financial statements for 2018, the half-year financial report for 2019 and the results of the financial audits, as well as the interim management reports;

the 2019 Audit & Compliance Plan (as proposed by Audit & Compliance department) and subsequent progress of the plan, examining the merits of key results from individual audit and compliance activities undertaken;

All the Committee members regularly attended the Committee meetings held during the Financial Year, as did the Audit & Compliance Officer (also acting in his role as Committee Secretary and, at the invitation of the Committee, Group Chief Risk Officer). The Chairman of the Board of Statutory Auditors, and/or other Standing Auditors in his stead, were also present at the same Committee meetings, along with employees and experts, including external audit representatives who were invited by the Committee to participate in an advisory capacity from time to time, in relation to particular items on the agenda.

The Committee was provided access to corporate information and received the benefit of assistance from corporate functions, as required for the performance of its duties. In addition, the Committee did not deem it necessary to use additional consultants to those identified from time to time by the relevant company departments for assistance with the preparation of documents and reports in support of the topics discussed during the Com- mittee's meetings and later brought to the attention of the Board.

During the meeting of 1 December 2019, the Committee defined a schedule of meetings and agenda for the 2020 Financial Year, which envisaged, among other things, that the Committee meets at least quarterly at the end of the financial periods for which the Board of Directors is obligated to draft financial reports to be released to the market.

The Board of Directors of the Parent Company has defined, through appropriate guidelines approved as from February 2013, subsequently updated on 25 February 2014 and on 1 March 2017, the principles underlying the Internal Control and Risk Management System (IC&RMS) to guide the identification, measurement, management and monitoring of the Group's most significant risks, in line with the Group's strategic objectives.

The IC&RMS shall apply to the Company and all Group subsidiaries. This system, integrated with corporate pro- cesses, aims to provide an appropriate structure for the pursuit of the Group's medium- to long-term objectives, so that any internal and/or external situations that might jeopardise the achievement of those objectives are promptly dealt with. Therefore, the Board of Directors shall use, in implementation of the provisions of the Self-Regulation Code, the Control and Risks Committee, the Compliance & Audit Officer, and the Risk Management Department guided by the Group's Chief Risk Officer (CRO), the Supervisory Boards of the Group's Italian companies set up pursuant to Legislative Decree 231/2001, and the managers responsible for preparing the corporate accounting documents.

The IC&RMS shall be implemented through a complex set of rules of conduct (including the Code of Ethics and Group Rules of Conduct), organisational procedures and provisions set out and disseminated by the Group and through regular internal and external assessments.

Starting from 2012, Prysmian began to use an evolutionary Risk Management system, which fosters proactive risk management, using a structured and systematic tool to support the main corporate decision-making pro- cesses. This Enterprise risk Management (ERM) model, developed in line with internationally acknowledged models and best practices, enables the Board of Directors and top management to regularly and dynamically analyse - that is, taking into account the changes in the business, in its demands and in the events with potential impact over time - the nature and level of the Group's risks, consistently with the Group's strategic objectives defined in line with the Group's risk appetite, thereby identifying risk management strategies to be adopted, i.e. for which risks and with what priority it is deemed necessary to implement, improve or optimise risk mitigation measures, or more simply, to monitor the Group's exposure to risk over time.

Please note that on 10 May 2018, the Board of Directors approved the Prysmian Group Risk Appetite Framework, following the favourable opinion of the Control and Risks Committee and upon the proposal of the Risk Management department. This framework is aimed at defining a formalised and structured process for determining the level of risk that the Group is willing to assume in pursuing its strategic and business objectives.

The ERM model adopted, formalised in the Group ERM Policy, which incorporated the IC&RMS guidelines, is: (i) extended to all types of potentially significant risk for the Group, detailed in the Risk Model, which divides the internal or external risk areas that characterise the Prysmian Group's business model into five groups (strategic, financial, operational, legal & compliance and planning & reporting); (ii) a common, clearly defined method for measuring and assessing specific risk events in terms of their impact, probability of occurrence and level of adequacy of the existing control system.

The Control and Risks Committee is regularly updated, through the participation of the CRO - appointed as of 2013 to govern the ERM process - in all Committee meetings, on the development of the Group ERM programme and on the outcome of the analysis of the actions implemented. The CRO first reports to an internal risk management committee comprised of Group senior management.

Each year, the abovementioned process involves the Group's main business managers, enabling them to identify and assess the most significant risk factors and set out targeted mitigation measures, permitting the Audit

As from 1 January 2016, the Board of Directors has also assigned the Remuneration and Nomination Committee the task of supervising sustainability matters connected to the Group's activities, as described in paragraph 7 of this Report. The name of the committee was also changed into Remuneration, Nomination and Sustainability Committee, whose composition is available on the Company website www.prysmiangroup.com in The Group/ governance/committee section.

For additional details on the main risks and Group management of sustainability matters that emerged from the analysis performed, see the Prysmian Group Consolidated Financial Statements, paragraph "Risk factors and uncertainties" contained in the Report on Operations, and the Sustainability Report for the Financial Year, which is available on the company website at www.prysmiangroup.com in the "Sustainability" section.

An Audit & Compliance Officer was appointed by the Board of Directors in July 2016, and that role takes on the duties and responsibilities that the Self-Regulation Code attributes to the Head of Internal Audit, along with the responsibility to independently and objectively verify that the IC&RMS functions are performed suitably and effectively.

The Audit & Compliance Officer reports on his/her actions and operations hierarchically to the Prysmian Group Board of Directors, as well as to the Director responsible for the internal control and risk management systems, to the Control and Risks Committee and to the Board of Statutory Auditors.

The identification and planning of internal audits initiated by the Audit & Compliance department therefore starts from the main risks that emerged within the scope of the ERM process, and then takes into consideration:

(i)the results of the internal control activities undertaken in previous years and the relevant recommendations, in order to identify possible internal control trends and/or deficiencies that should be further analysed;

(ii)any need for additional details on the corporate areas/processes highlighted by senior management.

The Audit Plan for 2019, based on the results of the 2018 risk assessment performed within the scope of the ERM process, was approved by the Board of Directors, with a favourable opinion from the Control and Risks Committee and after having heard the opinion of the Board of Statutory Auditors and the Director responsible for the internal control and risk management system, at the meeting on 25 February 2019.

In performing internal Audit activities, the Audit & Compliance Officer and the relevant department's staff are given complete access to all the significant data, documentation, information and personnel for the performance of their function.

Any deficiencies and/or improvement measures that emerged within the scope of the audit activities provide for the immediate definition of actions to be taken to mitigate potential underlying risks, according to a priority order whose implementation is regularly monitored by the Audit & Compliance department.

The Audit & Compliance Officer reports to the Control and Risks Committee, where he also performs the functions of Secretary, with regards to the progress of the Compliance and Audit Plan, including any problems found, improvement measures agreed and their implementation, proposing changes to the original plan, where necessary.

Regular reporting to the Control and Risks Committee allows the Audit & Compliance Officer to annually provide an assessment on the adequacy and proper operation of the IC&RMS for the processes and areas under his/her

responsibility. The Board, with the favourable opinion of the Control and Risks Committee, shall in its turn assess the adequacy, efficacy and effective operation of the internal control and risk management system at the meeting when the draft financial statements for the year are examined. As concerns this Financial Year, this assessment was performed on 5 March 2019, leading to the judgement of essentially satisfactory operation.

In line with existing best practices in the national and international arena, the Prysmian Group has also adopted a system for collecting and managing alerts for any irregularity or presumed violation of standards and/or company policies and procedures (the so-called "Helpline policy" ). In such a situation, the Helpline policy offers all staff in the Group (employees or otherwise) the possibility to report, also online and anonymously, any incorrect behaviour or presumed illicit activity that may have occurred within the organisation. To this end, two channels have been launched for collecting reports, consisting of dedicated telephone lines and a web portal. Both channels are operated independently and are available in any of the 26 languages in use by the Group.

MAIN FEATURES OF THE INTERNAL CONTROL AND RISK MANAGEMENT SYSTEM OVER THE FINANCIAL REPORTING PROCESS, ALSO CONSOLIDATED (PURSUANT TO ARTICLE 123-BIS, PARAGRAPH 2, LETTER B), TUF)

With particular reference to the financial reporting process, the analysis of the relevant risks and applicable internal controls are part of the Group's IC&RMS:

The Prysmian Group's head office departments are responsible for distributing this documentation to operating companies, which can access these accounting standards, procedures and rules through the Group's Intranet site. The operating companies may also issue local policies, procedures and rules that comply with centrally established guidelines.

During 2019, following the introduction of the new accounting standard IFRS16 Leasing, the Group Accounting Manual was updated.

Within the scope of compliance with Law 262/2005, the Managers responsible for preparing corporate accounting documents, supported by the Audit & Compliance department, began a scoping update, aimed at identifying those Group companies included in the scope of consolidation and the processes and sub-processes to be deemed significant for financial reporting. The analysis was performed on the basis of economic and financial criteria set out as percentages and analysed in relation to qualitative parameters linked to the country/process risk level, the maturity of the internal control system, and strategic relevance in relation to Group growth ex- pectations.

Based on the scoping results, in 2019 the analysis of significant companies' processes and sub-processes was undertaken considering the potential risks connected to a failure to comply with "accounting assertions" - existence and occurrence, completeness, assessment and recording, presentation and reporting, rights and obligations - for each financial statement item deemed significant. In view of the risks encountered, the Audit & Compliance department defined specific testing activities provided for by the Audit Plan, aimed at verifying the effectiveness of its design and its actual operation. Action plans, concerning potential areas for improvement identified during the checks undertaken and aimed at strengthening existing controls or adjust its weaknesses, were agreed with each process manager or reporting company. The Audit & Compliance department monitors the implementation of the actions defined in the audit activities above.

The results of the activities undertaken pursuant to Law 262/2005 are regularly subject to examination by the managers responsible for preparing the corporate accounting documents and then, at least every six months, they are brought to the attention of the Control and Risks Committee, the Board of Statutory Auditors and the Board of Directors of the Parent Company.

The Board of Directors appointed on 10 May 2018 Valerio Battista, Chief Executive Officer and General Manag- er, as the Director in charge of supervising the operation of the internal control and risk management system. Within the scope of his responsibilities, in 2018, the Director in charge implemented the IC&RMS guidelines defined by the Board, specifically focusing on:

With effect from 28 July 2016, the Board of Directors decided to establish a Compliance department in order to support the internal control and risk management systems. They appointed Alessandro Nespoli as the Audit & Compliance Officer, on the suggestion of the Director in charge of internal control and risk management sys- tems, and after also receiving favourable endorsement from the Control and Risks Committee and the Board of Statutory Auditors. The Audit & Compliance Officer was entrusted with the responsibility of leading the Audit & Compliance department. Consequently, he was endowed with the duties and responsibilities that the Self-Regulation Code attributes to the Head of Internal Audit. Following the same procedure, the Board also defined the remuneration of the Head of the Audit & Compliance Department in compliance with the provisions of the

Self-Regulation Code. This was done in line with corporate policies, ensuring that he is also provided with adequate resources to fulfil the responsibilities of the role.

Subsequently, on 4 April 2017, Giorgio Totis was appointed as Group Compliance Director, reporting directly to the Audit & Compliance Officer. The Group Compliance Director deals with activities such as promotion, development and implementation of training policies and programmes as per the Audit & Compliance Plan (e.g., anti -corruption, antitrust, trade compliance and privacy) .

Nonetheless, the Group decided to maintain a structure dedicated to Internal Audit, under the direction of Martin Gough, who as from 11 April 2019 replaced the previous director Laurida Sayed as Head of Internal Audit (HIA). Therefore, the Internal Audit department enriched by the addition of the COMPLIANCE function, is a broader and more structured department.

In compliance with the Code, and as the HIA previously, the Audit & Compliance Officer (i) is hierarchically dependent on the Board of Directors that appointed him and shall also report to the Director in charge of the internal control and risk management system, the Control and Risks Committee and the Board of Statutory Auditors. The HIA (ii) has no responsibility in any operational area even though he has direct access to all information useful for the performance of his functions.

The Audit & Compliance Officer is in charge of verifying, on an ongoing basis, that the internal control and risk management system duly and adequately operates in relation to specific requirements and in compliance with international professional standards. Therefore, the Audit & Compliance Officer shall draft an annual Group Compliance and Audit Plan based on the risk assessment performed within the scope of the ERM process set out in the previous financial year - see section 10 of the Report. The Audit & Compliance Plan for the Financial Year was approved by the Board of Directors on 25 February 2019.

Finally, it should be noted that after receiving a favourable opinion from the Control and Risks Committee, the Board of Directors appointed Giorgio Totis as Data Protection Officer on 10 May 2018, in accordance with the requirements of the new Regulation (EU) no. 2016/679 on data protection (GDPR - General Data Protection Reg- ulation). This appointment was in addition to his current role as Group Compliance Director.

In compliance with the recommendations of Legislative Decree 231/2001 ("Decree 231"), on 24 January 2006, Prysmian S.p.A. Board of Directors adopted its own organisational, management and control model (the "Mod- el"), last updated by resolution dated 1 March 2017. The other Italian companies in the Group in turn adopted their own Model consistent with the different specifications and circumstances applying to each one of them.

The Model is regularly subject to revision, consistently with legislative developments on the administrative crimes and offences pursuant to Decree 231, the dynamics of the Group's corporate governance system and organisational structure, in order to ensure its relevance and effectiveness over time. In particular, the Models adopted by Prysmian and each of the Italian companies in the Group were updated in 2019, so as to align the Models with current operating practices and organisational changes that have occurred over time.

The Model, which is an integral part of the Group's governance system, has been conceived to operationally draw up appropriate rules of conduct that will prevent illicit behaviour deemed significant by the Company pursuant to Decree 231, based on an analysis of corporate activities, decision-making processes and the existing control system.

Therefore, the Company deemed it appropriate to regulate processes and strengthen the internal control system with specific reference to the following crimes and offences provided for by Decree 231: Articles 24 and 25 (crimes against the Public Administration), Article 24-bis (computer crimes and unlawful data processing), Article 24-ter (organised crime offences), Article 25-bis, paragraph 1 (crimes against industry and trade), Article 25-bis.1 (crimes against industry and trade), Article 25-ter (corporate offences, including the crime of "Corrup- tion in the private sector"), Article 25-quater (offences with the purpose of terrorism or against democracy), Article 25-quater.1 (practices of female genital mutilation), Article 25-quinquies (crimes against the individual, including the offence of illegal intermediation and labour exploitation), Article 25-sexies (market abuse), Article 25-septies (unintentional manslaughter and serious or most serious injuries committed in breach of the rules on health and safety at work), Article 25-octies (receiving, laundering and using money, goods or benefits of illicit origin, and self-laundering), Article 25-novies (crimes relating to copyright violation); Article 25-decies (incitement not to make statements or to make false statements in court), Article 25-undecies (environmen- tal crimes), Article 25-duodecies (employment of illegally staying third-country nationals), Article 25-terdecies (racism and xenophobia), Article 10 Italian Law no. 146 of 16 March 2006 (transnational offences).

the Code of Ethics, which sets out the ethical standards of conduct that all who do business on behalf of Prysmian or its subsidiaries are obligated to comply with. This document is published on the Prysmian website, www.prysmiangroup.com under The Group/Ethics and integrity section and on the Group's in- tranet. For the purposes of its widest possible distribution, the Code of Ethics has been translated into 26 languages and is made available to every one of the Group's subsidiaries, with regular training sessions offered to employees and staff.

Rules of Conduct, which lay down the main standards of conduct expressed by the above-mentioned Code of Ethics, detailing areas of conduct in two categories of "to do" and "not to do", thereby responding to the need of prevention of possible crime-risk situations.

In compliance with Legislative Decree 231/2001, the Company has set up a Supervisory Board, appointed to its current office by the Board of Directors on 12 April 2018 with its term ending at the same time as the current Board of Directors, currently foreseen as the date of the Shareholders' Meeting convened to approve the financial statements as at 31 December 2020. The Supervisory Board, comprising several members, has the duty of supervising the operation of and compliance with the Model and ensuring its update through submission of proposals to the Board of Directors. The Board also resolved a €100 annual expense provision, which was partially used in 2019 for audit activities and for updating the Model, to provide the Supervisory Board with suitable financial resources for its activities.

The Board of Directors deemed it appropriate, at the time of its appointment, to set up a specific Supervisory Board, instead of entrusting the task to the Board of Statutory Auditors as permitted by recent amendments to the above-mentioned legislative decree. This choice was deemed appropriate to meet the independence and competence requirements, both fundamental to ensure that the Supervisory Board's actions are authoritative and effective.

The members of the Supervisory Board currently in office, qualified and possessing the integrity requirements as defined by the Model are Maria Luisa Mosconi, Chairwoman, and self-employed professional, Silvano Corbel- la, self-employed professional and expert consultant on the application of Legislative Decree 231/2001 and Ales- sandro Nespoli, Audit & Compliance Officer.

During the Financial Year, the Company's Supervisory Board met four times and, with the support of the Internal Audit Department, verified the actual application and awareness of the rules of control and conduct pursuant to Legislative Decree 231/2001, supplementing the Group Audit Plan approved by the Board of Directors.

Every six months, the Supervisory Board, through the results of the checks it makes, reports to the Board of Directors on the Model's application and effectiveness.

The independent audit of the accounts is entrusted, by law, to a specialist firm registered at the Register of Auditors held by the Ministry of Economy and Finance. The By-laws state that this assignment must be conferred by the Shareholders' Meeting following a reasoned proposal by the Board of Statutory Auditors.

The serving independent auditors are Ernst & Young S.p.A. They were engaged by the Shareholders' Meeting of 16 April 2015 to carry out the independent statutory audit of the Company's financial statements and Prysmian Group's consolidated financial statements and to perform a limited review of the Company's half-year financial reports for the period 2016-2024. The engagement will end with the approval of the financial statements for the year ended 31 December 2024.

During the Financial Year, the serving independent auditors met with the Group's other control bodies several times. They were invited to participate in both the Control and Risks Committee meetings to discuss significant events and the activities performed for the half-year reporting periods, and the Board of Statutory Auditors meetings to discuss regular control activities. Minutes were taken in all of the meetings.

The Board of Directors, with the favourable opinion of the Board of Statutory Auditors, jointly appointed the heads of the "Financial Statements & Compliance" and "Planning & Controlling" departments as the Managers responsible for preparing corporate accounting documents ("Responsible Managers"). In making this choice, the Board of Directors took account of the Group's organisational structure and the national best practices adopted by other listed companies, also supported by an interpretation published by Assonime [Association of the Italian Joint Stock Companies], which recommends keeping the office of Manager responsible for corporate accounting documents separate from Board members, because the two offices have different and independent responsibilities1.

Hence, the Responsible Managers currently in office are Carlo Soprano, Head of Financial Statements & Com- pliance, appointed on 10 November 2011, effective as of the following day, and Alessandro Brunetti, Head of Planning & Controlling, appointed on 27 February 2018, effective as of 1 April 2018.

In compliance with Article 19 of the By-laws, both Responsible Managers possess the requisites of professionalism and competence, having also gained at least three years of overall experience through the performance of at least one of the following activities:

The Board of Directors has granted both Responsible Managers all powers and authorities necessary for the performance of their duties pursuant to the applicable provisions of the TUF and the relevant implementation reg- ulations. Specifically, the Responsible Managers may:

In addition, the Responsible Managers, together with the Chief Executive Officer, shall certify, through a specific report drafted according to the model established by CONSOB regulation and annexed to the separate financial statements, the consolidated financial statements and the condensed half-year financial reports, that: (i) the administrative and accounting processes have been adequately and effectively applied, (ii) these documents correspond to the accounting records and books and (iii) they are able to provide a true and fair view of the fi- nancial, economic and equity situation of the Company and of the group of companies included in the scope of consolidation.

The Responsible Managers shall also issue specific statements certifying that interim financial information (e.g., interim reports on operations and/or press releases issued to the market) corresponds to the accounting records and books of the Company and of the group of companies included in the scope of consolidation.

The Prysmian Group fosters the exchange of information among the bodies involved in governance of the internal control and risk management system, whose continuity and timeliness shall be ensured through:

participation of the Board of Statutory Auditors in the Control and Risks Committee meetings; participation of the Responsible Managers in the Control and Risks Committee meetings at least twice a year;

regular reporting to the Control and Risks Committee, the Board of Statutory Auditors and to the Director in charge and to the Board of Directors by the Audit & Compliance Officer and the CRO, on the work done concerning the internal control and risk management system;

the exchange of information between the Control and Risks Committee, the independent auditors and the Responsible Managers concerning the accounting standards applied and the adequacy of the administrative and accounting procedures applied for preparing the Company's and the Group's financial reports;

regular reporting to the Board of Directors and the Board of Statutory Auditors by the Supervisory Board.

In view of the provisions and guidelines contained in CONSOB Resolution 17221 of 12 March 2010, as subsequently amended, the Board of Directors has voted to adopt a set of "Procedures for Related Party Transactions" which may be found on the Company website www.prysmiangroup.com under The Group/governance section.

These procedures govern, inter alia: (i) the roles of the different parties directly involved in the procedures (for example, the Shareholders' Meeting, the Board of Directors, the committee of independent directors, heads of department, etc.); (ii) the gathering, management and diffusion of information concerning the Prysmian list of related parties; (iii) how transactions that the Company intends to carry out with related parties should be prepared and approved; (iv) how and when information and documentation concerning proposed transactions should be made available; (v) exemption from the procedures for certain types of related party transactions and under certain circumstances.

As recommended in CONSOB Communication DEM/10078683 of 24 September 2010, in 2013 the Board of Direc- tors, with the approval of the committee of independent directors, reviewed the above procedures, concluding that there was no need for them to be revised.

Still during 2013, these procedures were updated, with the approval of the relevant committee, in order to implement the new policy adopted for identifying Key Managers, modified upon decision of the Board of Directors.

In 2016, these procedures were again updated to align groups of individuals who are covered by the same procedures with the changes in the organisational structure of the Group.

The procedure in question will be analysed in order to verify the need to adapt to the changes in the regulations on transactions with related parties following the entry into force of Legislative Decree no. 49/2019, which transposed EU Directive 2017/828 (SHRD II) in Italy, and the subsequent implementing provisions issued by Consob.

Related party transactions, if any, are detailed in the notes to the financial statements in the section entitled "Related party transactions".

Pursuant to the By-laws, the appointment of the Statutory Auditors takes place based on slates presented by shareholders who, alone or together with other shareholders, hold shares representing at least 2% of share capital with voting rights, or with a lower percentage established by law or regulation. These slates must be filed at the registered offices at least twenty-five days before the date set for the Shareholders' Meeting in first call. Each slate must be accompanied by statements in which the individual candidates accept their candidacy and by the candidates' curriculum vitae. In compliance with CONSOB Resolution no.28 of 30 January 2020, the minimum shareholding requirement for submitting the candidate slates for 2020 is 1%.

The By-laws (Article 21) contains the procedures for the submission of slates, for compliance with applicable legislation concerning balance of genders, the conduct of elections, the voting process and the replacement of statutory auditors who cease to hold office during their mandate.

In particular, it should be noted that slates with a total number of candidates equal to, or greater than, three must comprise candidates belonging to both genders, so that the less represented gender is at least one third (rounded upwards) of the candidates for the office of Standing Statutory Auditor and at least one third (rounded upwards) of the candidates for the office of Alternate Statutory Auditor1.

The first two candidates on the slate with the highest number of votes and the first candidate on the slate with the second highest number of votes, who also assumes the position of Chairman of the Board of Statutory Au- ditors, are elected as standing statutory auditors. The first candidate on the slate with the highest number of votes and the first candidate on the slate with the second highest number of votes are elected as alternate statutory auditors.

If the above procedures do not ensure that the composition of the standing members of the Board of Statutory Auditors complies with the currently applicable regulations on balance of genders, the necessary replacements will be made from among the standing statutory auditor candidates on the slate with the highest number of votes, in accordance with the numerical order in which candidates are listed.

The Statutory Auditors serve for three years and their term in office expires on the date of the Shareholders' Meeting called to approve the financial statements relating to their third year in office. They are eligible for re-election. The Chairman of the Board of Statutory Auditors and one of the Alternate Auditors are appointed by the Shareholders' Meeting from among the Statutory Auditors elected by minority shareholders.

Pursuant to the By-laws, members of the Board of Statutory Auditors must fulfil the requirements of profes- sionalism, integrity and independence set out in the applicable legislation. In particular, for the purposes of Article 1, paragraph 2, letters B) and C) of Ministry of Justice Decree 162 of 30 March 2000, the business sectors and fields viewed as strictly pertinent to the Company are those relating to the Company's sector of operations, as well as fields relating to private and commercial law, economic disciplines and those relating to the Compa- ny's business sector.

The appointment of the current Board of Statutory Auditors took place on 5 June 2019, when the Shareholders' Meeting elected the new statutory auditors using the slate voting system.

At that time, the following two slates of candidates were filed for renewal of the Board of Statutory Auditors:

Slate 1, submitted by the shareholder Clubtre S.p.A. owner, on that occasion, of 10,428,436 ordinary shares equal to 3.889% of Prysmian share capital:

Based on the two slates submitted, the first three candidates indicated in Slate 1 were appointed as members of the Board of Statutory Auditors, voted by the majority of those with voting rights participating in the Share- holders' Meeting, equal to approximately 72.98% of the share capital present or represented, and the two candidates indicated in Slate 2 were voted by a minority of those with voting rights participating in the Shareholders' Meeting, equal to approximately 23.67% of the share capital present or represented.

Therefore, taking account of the aforementioned Shareholders' Meeting vote and of the legislation concerning protection of minority interests as incorporated in Prysmian By-laws, the Board of Statutory Auditors was composed as follows:

Pellegrino Libroia, Chairman of the Board of Statutory Auditors, drawn from Slate 2, Paolo Francesco Lazzati, Standing Statutory Auditor, drawn from Slate 1,

Laura Gualtieri, Standing Statutory Auditor, drawn from Slate 1, Michele Milano, Alternate Statutory Auditor, drawn from Slate 1, Claudia Mezzabotta, Alternate Statutory Auditor, drawn from Slate 2.

The three-year term of the Board of Statutory Auditors currently in office will expire on the date of the Share- holders' Meeting called to approve the financial statements for the year ended 31 December 2021.

Lastly, the Shareholders' Meeting set the annual remuneration for the Chairman of the Board of Statutory Auditors at Euro 75,000 and at Euro 50,000 for the annual remuneration of each Standing Statutory Auditor.

The composition of the Board of Statutory Auditors has not undergone any changes since the close of the year.

13.  Composition and functions of the Board of statutory Auditors (pursuant to Article 123-bis, paragraph 2 letters d) and d-bis), TUF)

As required by Article 2409-bis of the Civil Code, the independent statutory audit of the accounts was entrusted to an auditing firm that must comply with the regulations applying to audits of listed companies and is under CONSOB supervision.

The Board of Statutory Auditors is therefore required to monitor the Company's compliance with the law and its articles of association and to comply with good management principles in the conduct of its business, and to control the adequacy of the Company's organisational structure, internal control system and administrative accounting system.

Pursuant to the effects of Legislative Decree 39/2010, the Board of Statutory Auditors was identified as the "In- ternal Control and Financial Audit Committee", meaning that it has supervisory duties over the financial reporting process, the effectiveness of the systems of internal control, internal audit and risk management, over the statutory audit of the separate and consolidated annual accounts and over the independence of the external auditing firm.

The Board of Statutory Auditors held 10 meetings during the Financial Year, attended by an average of 100% of its members. The average Board of Statutory Auditors meeting lasted about two hours and twenty minutes. The Statutory Auditors also ensured their presence at the one and only Shareholders' Meeting held during the year, and at the meetings of the Board of Directors, of the Remuneration, Nomination and Sustainability Committee and of the Control and Risks Committee.

During this financial year, the Board of Statutory Auditors held one meeting before the one in which the Report was approved, while 6 other meetings have been scheduled to be held during the Financial Year.

The company adopted a policy regarding the composition of the Board of Directors and the Board of Statutory Auditors. This policy is available on the company website www.prysmiangroup.com in The Group/governance section. The adoption of this policy also meets the requirements of Article 123- bis, paragraph 2, letter d-bis, of the TUF.

This policy was prepared by the relevant company departments under ongoing monitoring by the Remunera- tion, Nomination and Sustainability Committee, and was approved by the Board of Directors on 20 December 2017.

The By-laws of Prysmian require the Board of Statutory Auditors to be appointed in such a way as to ensure that the least represented gender obtains at least one third of its members. This principle was introduced in the Bylaws in order to comply with the provisions of Law no. 120 of 12 July 2011 (which introduced paragraph 1-bis in art. 148-ter of the TUF), which envisages the application of the aforesaid principle regarding the composition of corporate bodies for three consecutive terms starting from the first renewal following the date of entry into force of the aforesaid Law no. 120/2011.

Law no. 160/2019 repealed Law no. 120/2011 envisaging that, starting from the first renewal of the bodies of listed companies after the entry into force of the law itself, the share reserved to the less represented gender will increase from the current one third to two fifths. This reserved share will apply for six consecutive terms of office.

The mandate of the Board of Statutory Auditors currently in office, which is expected to expire naturally with the approval of the financial statements as at 31 December 2021, is the third and last to which the regulations envisaged by Law 120/2001, now repealed, applied. Taking into account the regulations applicable at the time, the Shareholders' Meeting of 5 June 2019, called to renew the Board of Statutory Auditors, appointed three standing statutory auditors, of which two men and one woman, as well as two alternate statutory auditors, one man and one woman. From the next renewal of the Board of Statutory Auditors, the new rules on gender quotas will apply.

Immediately after appointment by the Shareholders' Meeting, the Board of Statutory Auditors met for the first time on 5 June 2019. As required by the CONSOB Issuer Regulation and Self-Regulation Code, the Board of Statutory Auditors verified that each of its members (Pellegrino Libroia, Laura Gualtieri and Paolo Francesco Lazzati) met the independence requirements provided for by the law (Article 148, paragraph 3, TUF) and by the Self-Regulation Code (Articles 3.C.1 and 8.C.1) for statutory auditors of listed companies. When carrying out this review, the Board of Statutory Auditors relied on the statements that had been provided by members when applying for their candidacies, which included a comprehensive list of all administrative and supervisory appointments. Along with their curriculum vitae, these statements were lodged at the company's registered office in the run-upto the Shareholders' Meeting and were published according to law requirements. When making this assessment, the Board of Statutory Auditors did not adopt different criteria from those provided for by the Code with reference to the independence of directors. The Board of Statutory Auditors promptly informed the Company of the outcome of their review, which allowed the company to disclose those results to the market in a press release that was issued at the conclusion of the Shareholders' Meeting in which the same Board was appointed.

A similar review was carried out by the Board of Statutory Auditors during the Financial Year, as a result of which it was confirmed that the members continued to meet the aforesaid independence requirements. The Company was promptly informed of this outcome.

The Board of Statutory Auditors also carried out self-assessment activities aimed at verifying the suitability of its members and the Board as a whole, as envisaged by the "Rules of Behaviour of the Board of Statutory Auditors of Listed Companies" issued by the Consiglio Nazionale dei Dottori Commercialisti e degli Esperti Contabili

(equivalent of association of chartered accountants). Therefore, the Board of Statutory Auditors informed the Company's Board of Directors that this preliminary work did not reveal any shortcomings either with regard to each member or to their composition.

The Board of Statutory Auditors attended the induction activities arranged by the Chairman of the Board of Directors with the aim of increasing the Directors and Statutory Auditors awareness of the Prysmian Group's economic and business dynamics. During the Financial Year, two such meetings were held, respectively, which included, a visit to the research and development laboratories in Milan and the visit to the Prysmian Group's facility in Pozz- uoli - loc. Arco Felice - and it was arranged for the Directors and Statutory Auditors to attend meetings aimed to expand their knowledge of the business sectors in which the Prysmian Group operates. These meetings focus on themes of a strategic nature, which will also assist with the upcoming assessments regarding appropriate risk management principles.

The Shareholders' Meeting on 5 June 2019 that appointed the current Board of Statutory Auditors also determined that the annual remuneration for the Chair of the Board of Statutory Auditors would be Euro 75,000, and that the annual remuneration for each of the appointed Statutory Auditors would be Euro 50,000. This determination was in acceptance of the proposal put forward by shareholder Clubtre S.p.A. when submitting the candidate slate for the renewal of the supervisory board. No alternative proposals were presented during the lodgement of the candidate slates, nor during said Shareholders' Meeting when remuneration of the Board of Statutory Auditors was discussed. The proposal achieved a favourable endorsement with 96.17% of the voting shares. The votes against this proposal were 0.19% of the shares for which the vote was cast.

The Control and Risks Committee meetings are the main occasion to exchange information among those members with significant duties concerning internal controls. The Board of Statutory Auditors and the Audit & Compliance Officer always take part in these meetings, with the latter acting as secretary and assistant to the Committee supporting the Chairman in the coordination and organisation of the activities. At these times, there is always an exchange of information useful for the performance of the duties assigned to the three persons involved in internal controls.

The Board of Directors shall identify and appoint a head of Investor Relations, assigning the office and verifying that the person indeed possesses the necessary qualifications and experience for this role. As of 1 October 2014, Maria Cristina Bifulco was appointed Group Investor Relations Director.

The Group Investor Relations Director has the task of managing relations with institutional investors and financial analysts through a process of transparent and timely communication.

In particular, upon publication of its annual, half-year and quarterly results, the Company organises specific conference calls with institutional investors and financial analysts, also allowing the specialist press to take part. In addition, the Company promptly advises shareholders and potential shareholders of every event or decision that might have an important impact on their investment.

The Investor Relations department is in constant contact with investors, organising both group and one-to-one meetings in the main financial centres in Italy and abroad. The Investor Relations section of the Company web- site contains audio/video recordings of conference calls and presentations to the financial community as well as documents and press releases published by the Company.

Pursuant to Article 11 of the By-laws,"All shareholders entitled to attend the meeting may be represented at such Shareholders' Meeting by issuing a specific written proxy, as provided by and subject to the limits set out under applicable law. The proxy for attending the Shareholders' Meetings shall be notified to the Company even by sending the document to the certified e-mailaddress written in the Call of the Shareholders' Meeting."

In order to reduce the restrictions and requirements that might make it difficult and costly for those eligible to attend meetings and exercise their voting rights, the By-laws allow the Board of Directors to specify in the notice of the meeting that attendance is permitted via telecommunication media which enable all those attending the meeting to be identified and allow them to follow the debate and contribute in real time to the discussion of the items on the agenda.

The Company adopted shareholders' meetings regulations that govern the orderly and functional conduct of meetings and ensure each shareholder the right to speak on the items under discussion.

In particular, the regulations contain procedures for verifying the right to participate in Shareholders' Meetings, for entering and exiting the premises where the meeting is held, for joining in the debate, with particular attention to the amount of time allowed for those eligible to express their opinion on items on the agenda and for members of the Board of Directors and the Board of Statutory Auditors to reply.

The regulations may be viewed on the Company website www.prysmiangroup.com under The Group/governance /shareholders meeting section.

The meeting's Chairman directs the debate, giving the floor to directors, statutory auditors and those eligible who have requested to speak. Bearing in mind the subject and importance of individual items on the agenda, as well as the number of people requesting to speak, the Chairman decides in advance how long each speaker and respondent may speak in order to ensure that the proceedings can be completed in one session.

Those eligible may request to speak on each item on the agenda only once, making comments, requesting information and putting forward proposals. Speakers are permitted to request the floor until the Chairman declares the debate on the related item closed.

In order to allow the Chairman, and at the latter's request, anyone assisting him, to respond more completely to issues raised, those eligible are permitted to submit written notes to the Board of Directors setting forth the issues on which they intend to speak, even before the Shareholders' Meeting is opened.

In order to ensure that shareholders have sufficient information to take informed decisions in their meetings, the Board of Directors approves specific reports on items on the agenda and publishes them within the legally required term, including on the Company website.

During the Shareholders' Meeting called to approve the annual financial report, the Chief Executive Officer and the Chief Financial Officer present this document using detailed slides and comment on the main figures in the Company's separate financial statements and in the Prysmian Group's consolidated financial statements, thereby reporting on its activities to shareholders.

Seven of the twelve Directors in office at the date of the Shareholders' Meeting on 5 June 2019 attended this meeting. The three members of the Remuneration, Nomination and Sustainability Committee were present at the meeting, and so were able to provide the Shareholders' Meeting with information about how this Committee works, in addition to that already provided in the Remuneration Report.

During the year, the Company's share capital did not change. For further details, please refer to paragraph 2.a of this Report.

The market capitalisation trend has followed that of Prysmian stock, which has been influenced by both by the general performance of the financial markets and by the technical problems that arose during the Financial Year in relation to the submarine interconnection project (Western Link). Both these items had an impact on the Company's results during the Financial Year.

The Prysmian security performed positively at 27.4% during the year, reaching a value of €21.49 per share at the end of the year compared to €16.87 per share at the end of 2018. The performance was in line with that of the Italian market (the FTSE MIB index 28.3%), and slightly lower than that of the reference sector (Capital Goods Industrial Services) where the STOXX Europe 600/Ind Goods & Svcs index closed the Financial Year with an increase of 32.1%.

The average price of the security during the Financial Year was €18.55, down from €22.17 in 2018. Taking into account the dividends paid, the return offered by the Prysmian security (Total Shareholder Return, TSR) to its shareholders during the Financial Year was 30.5% and 97.4% from the date of listing. Excluding the contribution of dividends and therefore considering only the change in price, performance was 27.4% in 2019 and 48.2% from listing, respectively.

Observing the stock trend during the four quarters of the Financial Year, there was a progressive improvement, with the first part of the year mainly affected by the problems related to the Western Link order (February 2019) and a recovery in the second part of the year.

16.  Other corporate governance practices (pursuant to Article 123-bis, paragraph 2 letter a), TUF)

There are no other corporate governance practices to disclose other than those reported and described in the preceding sections.

There have been no other changes in the corporate governance structure since the end of the reporting period apart from those already reported and described in the preceding sections.

The Chairman of the Board of Directors shared with the members of the Remuneration, Nomination and Sustainability Committee the contents and recommendations of the Chairman of the Corporate Governance Committee letter of 19 December 2019. The Committee looked favourably on the proposal put forward by the Chairman of the Board of Directors to examine the Company's position in the areas subject to recommendation under the scope of self-assessment activities. Considering that the self-assessment activities in the current Financial Year will be carried out with the assistance of an advisor, the latter will be asked to provide an in-depth analysis of the areas subject to the recommendation. The outcome of this analysis may be subject to specific assessment by the Board of Directors.

The letter received from the Chairman of the Board of Directors was also shared with the Chairman of the Board of Statutory Auditors for appropriate evaluations.
