The shareholders’ equity attributable to the Group amounted to
€ 24,545 million, +4.2% compared to € 23,565 million as at 31 December 2015. The change is mainly due to:
- the result of the period attributable to the Group, which amounted to € 2,081 million as at 31 December 2016;
- the dividend distribution of € 1,123 million, carried out in 2016;
- other gains or losses recognized through shareholders’ equity in the current year amounted to € 11 million. In particular, this performance is attributable primarily to the increase in gains or losses reserves attributable to available for sale financial assets for € 252 million which more than compensates actuarial losses deriving from the re-measurement of the financial liabilities for defined benefit plans for € -243 million attributable to the reduction in the applicable rates used to discount those liabilities.
