Please remember that the PNC are a synthetic indicator which summarizes short positions (i.e. short sales on shares and short positions in financial derivative instruments and other similar instruments) net of long positions (i.e. purchases of shares and long positions in financial derivative instruments and other similar instruments) . All operations carried out in the aforementioned financial instruments, including those carried out abroad and/or off the market, are included in the calculation of the PNC. The Consob website is therefore the only official and reliable source of data on these positions.
They are the subject of publication PNCs that are equal to or greater than 0.5% of the share capital of the listed company in question; or they reached the 0.5% threshold and were then published, but subsequently decreased below the 0.5% threshold. These PNCs are published one last time with the indication of the last available value (below 0.5%).
