2 Key milestones ANAS Group structure A.A.S.S. (National Autonomous Agency for roads) was established to develop and manage the national road system as part of the Ministry of Public Works. A.A.S.S. was transformed into A.N.A.S. to speed up the reconstruction of roads and bridges damaged/ destroyed during the Second World War. ANAS GROUP* ANAS was span off as Ente Nazionale per le Strade, a separate entity under the control of the Ministry of Public Works. ANAS was transformed into a joint-stock company fully owned by Ministry of Finance. Over half of its road network was transferred to some Regions (approx. 25,000 km). Autostrade del Lazio (50%) Autostrada Asti Cuneo (35%) ANAS Int. Enterprise (100%) Autostrada del Molise (50%) Soc. Italiana Traforo Monte Bianco (32.1%) Concessioni Aut. Lombarde (50%) Quadrilatero Marche Umbria (92.4%) Concessioni Aut. Piemontesi (50%) Soc. Italiana Traforo Aut. Frejus (31.7%) Stretto di Messina in liq. (81.8%) Concessioni Aut. Venete - CAV (50%) ANAS establishes joint ventures with Regione Veneto, Lazio, Lombardia, Molise and Piemonte, to build and operate new infrastructures of joint national-regional interest. * Excluding minor shareholdings -2-

3 Mission The mission of ANAS is to manage, operate and maintain the motorway and road system of national interest, to provide extraordinary maintenance services and to build new motorways and roads. ANAS therefore plays a primary role in the modernization and development of the Italian infrastructures. To date the whole 25,000 km road network managed by the Company is toll free. In 2002 ANAS was granted a concession expiring in 2032, covering the entire motorway and road system of national interest and was transformed in a joint-stock company entirely owned by Ministry of Finance. ANAS is subject to the technical and operational supervision and control of the Ministry of Infrastructure and Transport ( MIT ). Over the past three years the regulatory framework for ANAS has undergone significant changes due to the enactment of new laws. The legislative provisions modified the mission and scope of operations of ANAS transferring the activities related to the supervision and control over the toll motorway concessionaires (25 private operators managing motorways and tunnels with an aggregate length of approx. 5,900 Km) to a specific department of MIT. -3-

4 Main business areas Motorways and roads operation & management Motorways and roads construction & maintenance Research and development International business and other activities ANAS operates and manages the non-toll motorway and road network of national interest with an aggregate length of more than 25,000 Km, including 1,310 Km of motorway sections. ANAS builds new motorways and roads, and provide extraordinary maintenance services to the motorway and road network under management.

16 Concessioni Autostradali Venete CAV at a glance CAV is a motorway operator established in 2008 by ANAS (50%) and Regione Veneto (50%). CAV was granted a concession expiring in 2032, covering a motorway network of 74.1 km located in the Venice area, which comprises some of the most strategic sections of the Italian motorway system. CAV network is a crucial intersection for the commercial exchanges between Eastern / Western and Northern / Southern Europe and is part of two of main Trans-European corridors: the MEDITERRANEAN, from Algeciras (Spain) to Ukraine border, and the BALTIC-ADRIATIC connecting Gdynia (Poland) to Ravenna (Italy). The construction of part of the network under management (Passante di Mestre) was paid for by ANAS in , with CAV taking charge of the operations at the beginning of CAV is preparing to refinance its outstanding debt in due course through a project bond issue. The bond s credit profile is expected to be enhanced via the European Investment Bank s PBCE scheme.

17 Financial highlights The transformation of ANAS into a joint-stock company started in So far ANAS hasn t charged any tolls on its own motorway and road network. Ordinary maintenance, management and operation activities fully funded by "surcharges", which are included in the tariffs applied to the toll motorway network under concession. Significant goals and improvements have been already achieved: steady financial and economic equilibrium; dividend distribution to the shareholder. -17-

22 CONCLUSIONS ANAS is a joint-stock company efficiently managed, in line with the sector best practices, taking into account the present regulatory framework. ANAS, in each of the last 7 years, has posted net profits and distributed dividends to its sole shareholder (Ministry of Finance). ANAS is ready to implement new strategies, to be finalized by the Government, in order to increasingly evolve towards a market concessionaire model. Consequently it can be envisaged a future participation of private investors (debt and/or equity) increasing the investments and maintenance activities of the Company with a reasonable return on investment. -22-
