The result of the first half of 2009 presents an increase over the first half of 2008:

As was already mentioned in the foregoing paragraphs, the Group consolidated the companies Acantho Spa, Satcom Spa and Modena Network Spa, which operate in the telecommunications sector. With their contribution to the result, equal to Euro 4.9 million, they compensate the decrease tied to several minor services disposed of during 2008. The companies in question manage more than 3000 km of fibre optic and more than 7,200 customers.
