Investing.com - Enel (BIT: ENEI ) shares fell in Wednesday's trading, with the largest company by market capitalization in the Milan Stock Exchange again at the center of a possible board revolution.
According to some rumors reported by Bloomberg, CEO Flavio Cattaneo would be considering changing the group's CFO, a position held for more than ten years by Alberto De Paoli.
The first choice for the position is said to be Stefano De Angelis, while De Paoli is expected to remain in a senior management position.
"Enel informs that currently no decisions have been made concerning appointments or changes within the company's top management," the group's spokesperson said.
These rumors about the change of CFO, a crucial role for the company's financial decisions, come after a renewal of the board of directors that saw the entry of Cattaneo as CEO replacing Francesco Starace, now a partner in EQT (NYSE: EQT ) Infrastructure, and Paolo Scaroni, formerly of Eni SpA (BIT: ENI ) and Saipem (BIT: SPMI ), as chairman.
Cattaneo, the former CEO of Telecom Italia (BIT: TLIT ) and a Meloni government appointee, confirmed that the company will follow the guidelines of the strategic plan to 2025 approved by the old board of directors, which includes lowering operating costs through divestment of less strategic assets and investments of €11 billion (€1 = $1.0665).
Presented last November, the intent of the new plan is to reduce net debt by €60.1B with asset divestments of about €21B. It also pledged to pay investors a dividend of €0.43 per share in 2023 and keep it stable for the following two years.
