Economic value distributed - 2014

Economic value distributed - 2014

The economic value distributed decreased of 4,6% to the previous year, from Euro 523.4 million in 2013 to Euro 499.4 million in 2014.

In 2014, Euro 161.5 million was allocated to the remuneration of employees, equal to 32.3% (29.7% in 2013) of the value distributed and 26.0% (26.9%) of that generated.

To the previous year it has decreased, both in absolute terms (Euro 111.1 million in 2013 and Euro 51.0 million in 2014), and as a portion of the total value distributed (respectively 21.2% in 2013 and 10.2% in 2014), in terms of the value allocated to providers of the organisation´s capital (shareholders and credit institutions). In particular in the form of dividends (ordinary and extraordinary), which in 2013 amounted to Euro 89 million, in 2014 to Euro 26.5 million.

The value allocated to suppliers of goods and services was Euro 188.6 million in 2014 (Euro 174.2 million in 2013), accounting for 37.8% of the total distributed value, while that allocated to the Public Administration in the form of taxes and charges was Euro 54.5 million (10.9% of the distributed value).

The share of the distributed value allocated to the company and the region was 0.2% in 2014, corresponding to the sum of the fees issued to tertiary sector bodies and associations in support of cultural, humanitarian, scientific and sporting projects.
