Elliott Advisors (UK) Limited Statement on Telecom Italia26.4.2018 19:49Pressemelding

Elliott Advisors (UK) Limited (“Elliott”) today sent a new letter and a presentation to Telecom Italia (“TIM” or the “Company”) shareholders calling upon shareholders to uphold best practice governance principles at TIM’s upcoming shareholder meeting on May 4th.
