In this regard it should be noted that in the financial statements of prior years, the item "Provision for liabilities and charges" did not contribute to the determination of EBITDAR (the item "Provision for liabilities and charges" for FY 2010 amounted to 7,741 thousand while it amounted to 2,625 thousand as at 31 December 2009). 2) EBITDA: Earnings Before Interest, Taxes, Depreciation, Amortization. For the purposes of drafting this Interim Report, with reference to the EBITDA indicator and its comparative measurements, the "Provision for liabilities and charges" was treated as mentioned above with reference to EBITDAR. It should be observed that the comparability of data in absolute value is affected by the contribution of the Aviation branch of Meridiana as from 28 February Therefore, the "key indicators", the "Summary income statement and "Summary balance sheet," in absolute terms cannot be compared. In this regard, as explained below, the performance of the period with respect to comparative data was discussed, where possible, in terms of percentage of revenues. Moreover, as better explained in section "4.2 - Comparability of accounting data", comparable data are provided on a like-for-like basis through Accounting Statements and Other Pro-forma Information contained in this Annual Report. Meridiana fly - Annual Financial Report at 31 December

3 Operational activities in terms of total flight hours increased by approximately 117% compared to 2009 reflecting the contribution of the Aviation Branch of Meridiana, resulting from the contribution of business unit mentioned above. Consolidated revenues from sales and services amounted to 604,812 thousand with a 6.6% decline compared to proforma data for 2009 as a result of both lower volumes and lower average unit prices reflecting the economic downturn and strong competition. Consolidated EBITDAR, amounting to 31,828 thousand, worsened by 35% compared to 2009 pro forma data. As a percentage of revenues, EBITDAR decreased from 6.3% and 7.6% in 2009 (respectively separate and pro-forma) to 5.3% in 2010 (consolidated). The decline in performance reflects the increased impact of fuel costs, sales and marketing costs, staff costs and provision for liabilities and charges. Operating profit - EBIT - was negative in absolute terms (consolidated operating loss of 41,283 thousand) with a deterioration compared to 2009 pro-forma data (operating loss of 28,703 thousand), caused by a drop in EBITDAR, despite a lesser impact of operating leases reflecting the better rental conditions of the Aviation Branch fleet. The bottom line was a consolidated loss of 46,411 thousand (net loss of 51,861 thousand in the separate financial statements), compared to a net loss of 34,059 thousand in 2009 (loss of 34,793 thousand in the 2009 pro-forma data). In addition to the negative trend in EBIT both net financial expenses and tax charges increased, the latter reflecting the partial write-down of deferred tax assets; in the separate financial statements the investments in Sameitaly and Wokita were written-down for a total amount of 8,575 thousand as a result of the impairment test. As at 31 December 2010 the Group ( 1 ) has a positive net equity of 8,439 thousand, while the parent company Meridiana fly has a net equity of 10,109 thousand. Given the loss for the year, the Company falls within the cases provided by Article of the Italian Civil Code (loss of more than one third of the share capital which currently amounts to 20,901 thousand); the extraordinary shareholders meeting was therefore convened on 28 April 2011 on first call and, if necessary, on 29 April 2011 on second call, for appropriate action. The capitalization of the Company is discussed more in detail in section Capitalisation of the Company and commitments of the major shareholder. The net financial position at year end reported a deficit of 19,327 thousand ( 20,197 thousand in the separate financial statements), compared to net financial indebtedness of 19,612 thousand in the separate financial statements for The average employees headcount in 2010 was 1,517 (1,465 in the separate financial statements), a significant increase compared to 740 employees in 2009 as a result of the contribution of Meridiana Aviation Branch. 1 Please note that in this Report "Group" means, unless otherwise specified, Meridiana fly and its subsidiaries.

7 2. MANAGEMENT REPORT Dear Shareholders, In the last financial year economic stagnation continued to affect Western economies, especially the Italian one, where modest growth prevailed compared to other EU economies (GDP grew at 1.3% in Italy according to Istat sources); the prospect for GDP and consumption growth in 2011 are also very limited and consistently lower than the average for the Eurozone (+1.1% vs. +1.6%). In this framework, there is still uncertainty over future consumption trends and the final end of the economic and financial crisis. Unemployment remained high, despite various measures put in place to temporarily tackle the problem by using the various state subsidized arrangements for redundancies (e.g. CIGS- state temporary layoff fund). After the heavy losses incurred in 2009 in terms of activities and economic performance, the air transport sector, although not reaching the pre-crisis levels of 2008, showed some signs of recovery in 2010, especially on international routes and with regard to business travels; during April 2010, however, air traffic was disrupted by repeated halts caused by an ash cloud from the eruption of a volcano in Iceland. The above-mentioned volcanic eruption resulted in the closure of several airports in Europe for approximately ten days in the month of April; the interruption of air traffic caused substantial losses to the airlines operating in the area, including Meridiana fly, resulting both from cancellation of flights as well as the decision of many passengers to postpone or cancel their travels. Pricing was affected by strong competition resulting in a decrease in average unit revenue (yield). Forecasts for 2011 still show modest economic growth in the European Union (especially the Italian economy), with limited increase in passenger and freight traffic. Estimates on airlines economic performance have recently been revised downwards for the 2011 period, reflecting increased price elasticity of the number of passengers, the existing strong industry competition and the steady increase in operating costs, in particular fuel costs, which were pushed upward by the political crisis in various countries of North Africa. In this respect, it should be pointed out that fuel prices in February stood above the threshold of USD 100 per barrel; this increase is not usually completely offset by an increase in tickets prices for scheduled and charter flights, with a consequent negative impact on the profitability of carriers. The USD/EUR average exchange rate has strengthened compared to 2009, partly as a result of the financial crisis of some member states (Greece in particular), reaching an average of from , resulting in an increase, all things being equal, in the cost of procurement of goods and services denominated in Dollars, which account for a significant part of airlines costs, including Meridiana fly (e.g. costs of fuel and aircraft leasing, maintenance and, outside the European Union, costs of handling and taxes). It should also be noted that in recent years the air transport sector in Italy has undergone a radical reorganization, mainly due to the entry and rapid spread of so called low cost companies, resulting in a strong pressure on average earnings and margins, with some companies going bankrupt while the others had to implement major reorganization plans. The leading European low-cost airline, Ryanair, has invested significantly in the Italian market and is now the second player in terms of number of passenger traffic. Against this background, Meridiana Fly is facing the pressing competition of low cost carriers as well as the national companies (in particular CAI, which was created by the business combination of Alitalia and Airone), even in its historical target markets such as Sardinia and Verona. This weakened Meridiana Fly's competitiveness, whose results in 2010 were significantly lower than expected. Meridiana fly - Annual Financial Report at 31 December

8 With the exception of some routes, all the bases from which scheduled flights are operated showed deterioration in profitability compared to 2009 with an average reduction in contribution margin exceeding 35%. Even the charter business, while showing an improvement compared to 2009, remained virtually stagnant, and, at present, there are no signs of recovery. The 2010 summer season showed worrying signs of deterioration, both in the core business and in the leisure sector, due to the economic downturn as well as the intense competition on domestic scheduled air traffic by Italian and foreign low-cost carriers, with consequent reductions in average revenue, load factor and overall margins. For example in August passenger numbers were down by about 2% compared to 2009 and were 4% lower than the company's forecast. In order to cope with these difficulties, the Company had to cancel several routes, especially scheduled routes, so as to optimize supply in terms of frequencies and seats, as well as in terms of pricing. We provide hereinafter a specific comment of the business combination Meridiana / Eurofly. Meridiana fly, with the full support of its major shareholder, S.A. Karim Aga Khan, through AKFED (an entity controlled by the above shareholder) and Meridiana S.p.A. (which in turn holds a controlling interest in Meridiana fly and is also controlled by the above shareholder), in late February 2010, implemented a combination of its aviation activities with those of the parent Meridiana S.p.A. by means of a contribution of a business branch of the latter (the "Aviation Branch") to Meridiana fly. At the same time both companies have implemented the spin-off of their branch of business dedicated to aircraft maintenance (MRO) in a new company (Meridiana Maintenance S.p.A.). During the summer of 2010 a paid capital increase of 40 million was carried out in order to recapitalise Meridiana fly and cover the financial needs resulting from the implementation of the Business Plan approved by the Board of Directors on 19 November Meridiana fly S.p.A., is the only airline company listed on the Italian Stock Exchange and the second national carrier, with a market share of domestic traffic of approximately 16%, behind CAI / Alitalia, Airone Group (which has a 50% market share). Meridiana fly operates from the main Italian airports in the scheduled and charter flights market and boasts a strong position on Sardinian routes and is a leader in the so-called leisure transport segment especially high-end, in particular with regard to destinations in the Indian Ocean / East Africa, Egypt and the Mediterranean area. Through the combination with the Aviation Branch of Meridiana, the Company's size and standing grew to achieve a 2010 turnover of approximately 605 million (without the contribution of Meridiana for the first 2 months of 2010 of approximately 35 million, which therefore was not included in the overall data), an average of 1,517 employees (FTE), a total fleet of 37 aircraft and over 4.6 million passengers in 2010 (besides 0.4 million passengers carried by Meridiana in the first two months of 2010, bringing the overall figure to around 5 million). Among the main objectives pursued through the business combination, there are significant economic synergies over the next five years. Following the business combination there were labour tensions with the maintenance personnel and crews resulting in stops, cancelled flights, delays in services which reduced productivity and caused significant additional charges. These events bore heavily on the Company's bottom line, which was already penalized by the losses caused by external factors (such as the rising fuel price, the effects of the volcanic ash cloud, reduced yield and margins on some routes reflecting the economic and industry downturn mentioned earlier). It should also be noted that due to the operational complexity of the business combination there were some delays in commissioning some A320 aircraft (medium haul), resulting in additional unexpected costs. The completion of the business combination between Meridiana and Eurofly caused a generalized structural personnel surplus with regard to the crews and the ground staff. This fact, already planned and anticipated in the business combination procedures, was further exacerbated by the need to cut operational activities given the negative business situation mentioned above. For these reasons, in February 2011, Meridiana fly initiated a process of significant restructuring, as discussed in more detail in section 2.26 "Significant events after year end " in order to streamline operations and the structure bringing them in line with the market best references and recover profitability in future years.

11 2.3. Key financial performance indicators for 2010 The Consolidated Income Statement reclassified in accordance with management criteria is presented below; it includes, with reference to FY 2010, 10 months operations of the Aviation Branch of Meridiana, which was contributed at the end of February For comparability purposes with the previous period, the pro forma data for the 2009 financial year are also presented, on a consolidated basis, as more fully described below in section Comparability of accounting information. 000 Financial Year % revenues Financial Year % revenues 2010 from sales 2009 from sales Change Consolidated data Proforma Sales revenue 604, % 647, % (42,950) Other Revenue 40, % 42, % (1,562) Total revenues 645, % 689, % (44,512) Fuel (158,231) -26.2% (132,220) -20.4% (26,011) Materials and maintenance services (86,565) -14.3% (97,301) -15.0% 10,736 Selling expenses (22,427) -3.7% (25,719) -4.0% 3,292 Other operating costs and wet leases (213,889) -35.4% (230,395) -35.6% 16,506 Sundry costs and other services (32,936) -5.4% (36,987) -5.7% 4,051 Staff costs (91,811) -15.2% (112,126) -17.3% 20,315 Provision for liabilities and charges (7,741) -1.3% (6,225) -1.0% (1,516) EBITDAR 31, % 48, % (17,139) Operating lease (53,391) -8.8% (62,579) -9.7% 9,188 EBITDA (21,563) -3.6% (13,612) -2.1% (7,951) Amortisation, depreciation and write-downs (14,750) -2.4% (12,692) -2.0% (2,058) Other adjustment provisions (4,970) -0.8% (2,399) -0.4% (2,571) EBIT (41,283) -6.8% (28,703) -4.4% (12,580) Net financial income (expenses) (1,829) -0.3% (1,089) -0.2% (740) Pre-tax profit (loss) (43,112) -7.1% (29,792) -4.6% (13,320) Income taxes (3,299) -0.5% (5,001) -0.8% 1,702 Net profit (loss) (46,411) -7.7% (34,793) -5.4% (11,618) As mentioned above, data comparability in absolute terms is affected by the contribution of the Aviation Branch executed on 28 February 2010 by Meridiana S.p.A.; consequently the income statement for the first two months of 2010 is attributable to the shareholder Meridiana S.p.A. and does not contribute to the Group's annual performance. In addition, the "provision for liabilities and charges" in the Reclassified Consolidated Income statement contributes to the determination of EBITDAR, in contrast to the former practice in which it only contributed to the determination of EBIT. In order to improve data comparability, similar reclassifications have been made with regard to comparative data as at 31 December The 2010 economic performance was significantly influenced - not only by the lower average revenue per passenger (yield) due to the economic crisis and pressure from competitors on some domestic routes - but also by the extraordinary operations carried out in the period: the contribution of the Aviation Branch of Meridiana and the contribution to Meridiana Maintenance S.p.A. of the respective MRO Maintenance Divisions by the Company and by Meridiana S.p.A. (the above operations had a negative nonrecurring impact of approximately 1.5 million caused by the resulting labour tensions). The above situation was also negatively impacted by the temporary closure of air spaces caused by the volcanic eruption in Iceland (which caused estimated losses of around 3 million for the Company), some delays in the availability of new aircraft (resulting in unexpected wet leases with other carriers for about 1.6 million). These non-recurring material events are discussed more in detail in section 9.6 of the Notes to the separate financial statements - "Significant Non-recurring Events and Transactions".

12 Total revenue for 2010 was 645,428 thousand ( 644,624 in the separate financial statements), compared to 293,571 of the separate financial statements of the previous year 689,940 thousand in the 2009 pro-forma). Sales revenue, including revenue from scheduled and charter air traffic, along with other ancillary revenue amounted to 604,812 thousand ( 604,129 thousand in the separate financial statements) compared to 290,192 thousand in the separate financial statements for 2009 ( 647,762 thousand in the 2009 pro-forma). Sales revenue included revenue from code-sharing activities with other carriers amounting to approximately 10.8 million ( 10.9 million in 2009). Other revenue amounted to 40,616 thousand ( 40,495 thousand in the separate financial statements) compared to 3,379 thousand in the previous year ( 42,178 thousand in 2009 pro-forma); it mainly comprises operating grants (relative to certain domestic routes subject to State control - i.e. Sardinia, Sicily and the smaller islands), revenue recognized on an accrual basis, revenue from "prepaid" tickets calculated as an estimate, based on historical data, of tickets already sold, that will not be used by customers nor refund will be requested within the contractual time limit, as well as other minor revenue from services performed. EBITDAR (which as described above also includes "Provision for liabilities and charges") amounted to 31,828 thousand ( 31,711 thousand in the separate financial statements) compared to 18,177 thousand in 2009 and 48,967 thousand in 2009 pro-forma. The impact of fuel costs on revenue in 2010 amounted to 26.2% (as in the separate financial statements), up compared to the 2009 financial year (24.5%) and the 2009 pro-forma (20.4 %) due to the higher price of jet fuel (which on average increased by approximately 29% in dollars compared to FY2009). Staff costs as a percentage of revenue was 15.2% (14.7% in the separate financial statements), compared with 13.5% in FY2009 and 17.3% in the 2009 pro-forma; until September 2010 "solidarity contracts" with the crew were in force, whose positive contribution to the income statement amounted to 9.6 million before tax; in 2009 these contracts were also in force for most of the year. It should also be noted that the length of service, the average wage and number of employees in the Aviation Branch of Meridiana are higher than those of Meridiana fly stand-alone, which, everything else being equal, causes a higher impact of labour costs as a percentage of corporate revenue. Selling expenses as a percentage of revenue in 2010 were 3.7% (4.2% in the separate financial statements) compared to 1.7% in the 2009 financial statements (4% in the 2009 pro-forma) almost exclusively due to "scheduled flights" of the former Meridiana Aviation branch characterized by higher brokerage costs (agencies and other distribution channels). On the contrary, the component costs for purchases of materials and maintenance services weighted less as a percentage of revenue, at 14.3% in 2010, compared with 15.9% of the 2009 financial statements and 15.0% of the 2009 pro-forma, especially reflecting non-recurring expenses incurred in 2009 for the phase-out of two long haul aircraft (a cost of approximately 3.8 million). Wet lease costs and other operating costs amounted to 35.4% of revenue in 2010 (as in the separate financial statements), compared to 31.6% in 2009 and 35.6% in the 2009 pro-forma as a result of the strengthening of the dollar exchange rate by almost 5% on average. The other operating expenses and other services as a percentage of revenue in 2010 were 5.4% (5.3% in the separate financial statements) compared to 6.8% of 2009 financial statements (5.7% in the 2009 pro-forma ) due to the downsizing of the structure and general service staff (overheads) as a result of the synergies achieved from the business combination. Finally, 7,741 thousand were charged to the provision for liabilities and charges (compared to 2,625 thousand in the 2009 financial statements and 6,225 thousand in 2009 pro-forma) taking into account the development of litigations during the period. EBITDA (which also includes the "Provision for liabilities and charges") reported a loss of 21,563 thousand ( 21,680 thousand in the separate financial statements) compared with a loss of 23,286 thousand in the 2009 financial statements and the loss of 13,612 thousand in the 2009 pro-forma; this indicator deteriorated as a percentage of revenue (- 3.6% compared to 8% in the 2009 financial statements, and compared with -2.1% of the 2009 pro-forma).

13 The weight of operating lease costs, equal to 8.8% (as in the separate financial statements), decreased in comparison to the 2009 separate financial statements (14.3%) due to two fewer A330 Long Haul aircraft than in 2009, as well as to lower costs of aircraft operating lease in the Aviation Branch, reflecting both the type (MD-80) and the age of such aircraft. The comparable figure for the 2009 pro-forma financial statements was 9.7%. As a result of the facts discussed above, the operating profit (loss) - EBIT - was negative for 41,283 thousand (negative EBIT of 37,834 thousand in the separate financial statements), compared with a loss of 28,918 thousand in the separate financial statements for 2009 and a loss of 28,703 thousand in 2009 pro-forma; the components of cost represented by depreciation and amortization and other adjusting provisions amounted to 3.2% as a percentage of revenue (2.7% in the separate financial statements), compared with 1.9 % of the 2009 separate financial statements and 2.4% of the 2009 pro-forma. It should be noted that in FY2010 the write-downs of investments as a result of impairment, which in the separate financial statements were recognized in the item financial income and charges, as described below, in the consolidated data were instead included in the write-downs for 3,438 thousand net financial income and charges show a negative balance of 1,829 thousand (a negative balance of 10,901 thousand in the separate financial statements, of which 8,575 thousand due, as previously mentioned, to the write-down of investments as a result of the impairment test); this indicator was negative for 2,290 thousand in the 2009 separate financial statements and 1,089 thousand in the 2009 pro-forma. Net of estimated tax for the period (current and deferred), the 2010 financial year closed with a Group net loss of 46,411 thousand (net loss of 51,861 thousand in the separate financial statements) against a net loss of 34,793 thousand registered in the 2009 pro-forma (net loss on an individual basis of 34,059 thousand in 2009). Given that there were 1,394,086,688 ordinary shares at the end of 2010, net loss per share on a consolidated basis was (net loss per share amounted to in the separate financial statements). As at 31 December 2010, after accounting for the extraordinary transactions carried out, i.e. capital increase through contribution in kind (February 2010) and paid capital increase (in August 2010), the Group shareholders' equity amounts to 8,439 thousand ( 10,109 thousand in the separate financial statements) as discussed in detail in sections 4.8 and Analysis of changes in equity). Given that the share capital amounts to 20,901 thousand as at 31 December 2010, the Company falls within the case provided by art of the Italian Civil Code, (loss exceeding 1/3 of the share capital), the extraordinary shareholders' meeting was therefore convened on 28/29 April 2011 pursuant to art of the Italian Civil Code in order to adopt the necessary measures. Within this framework, AKFED, implementing its commitment of 26 August 2010 and through a further contribution of additional 15 million not originally envisaged in the commitment, supported Meridiana S.p.A. in making payments to the future capital increase account that in the first quarter of 2011 amounted to 28,900 thousand ( 6,400 thousand on 25 January 2011, 7500 thousand on 24 February 2011 as fulfilment of the original commitment, as well as additional 15,000 thousand on 22 March 2011). Net financial debt as at 31 December 2010 amounted to 19,327 thousand ( 20,197 thousand in the separate financial statements at 31 December 2010), compared to net financial debt of 19,612 thousand recorded in the financial statements at 31 December The following is a reconciliation between shareholders' equity and net profit/loss of the parent company and the same data for the Group consolidated financial statements.

14 2.4. The fleet Meridiana fly today operates with a fleet of nineteen Airbus aircraft (twelve A320s, three A330s and four A319s) under operating lease and sixteen MD-82, six of which under operating lease and ten owned by the Company (plus two ATR 42 acquired through wet lease agreements). Following the business combination with Meridiana Aviation Branch that took place in late February 2010, which contributed four A319 and seventeen MD-82, Meridiana fly operates a mixed fleet made up of Airbus and MD82; the two commercial divisions (scheduled and charter) operate through a unitary management, thereby optimizing the use of crews, of the fleet and of support activities (administrative, staff and operational). The composition of the commercial fleet and the changes that took place until 31 December 2010 are shown in the table below.

15 In addition to the combination with the fleet of Meridiana Aviation Branch, the following additional changes took place: entry of three A320 aircraft (EI-EZR, EI-EZS and EI-EZT) in dry-lease with full operation since July-August 2010; phase-out of an MD-82 (EI-CIW) in October 2010; exit of an A319 aircraft (EI-DEY) in June 2010, with simultaneous addition of an A319 (I-EEZQ) located at more competitive conditions Actions to improve the standard of services During the year 2010, following the combination Meridiana - Eurofly, new projects were designed and implemented in order to improve the quality of services to external and internal customers, particularly in terms of punctuality of flights and resulting reduced inconvenience to passengers; some of these projects are described below: Introduction throughout the Meridiana fly fleet of a single system of shifts and management both for the aircraft and the crew resulting in an increasing trend of operational efficiencies. Planning, Programming and Operational Management of the crew through increased synergy of the functions involved in order to achieve greater productivity. Implementation of the automatic boarding procedure in some airports of the operating network thus achieving efficiency gains and cost savings. Upon completion of the testing phase, the same procedure will be implemented in the remaining airports. These projects represent a first contribution of the synergy effects of the business combination towards a reduction of the loss; indeed, had the two COA (Air Operator Certification) remained separate, it would not have been possible to develop such quality improvements as the operating structures would have been required to operate separately Commercial Business As shown below, following the completion of the strategic business combination with the aviation activities of Meridiana, the corporate entity resulting from this process - Meridiana fly S.p.A. - has become a single business unit, since there are no separate production units within the air transport business that may constitute a stand-alone system with decision-making autonomy. Only from a strictly commercial viewpoint, does Meridiana fly manage the scheduled and charter flight sales channel in a different way; these products are necessarily marketed separately, given the typical characteristics that distinguish the two commercial areas and customer segments to which they relate. Charter business With regard to charter flights, Meridiana fly primarily sells its capacity to tour operators, which buy it in order to organize their own tour packages, through semi-annual and annual contracts defined well in advance of the beginning of the season (summer and winter) and mainly with the "Advanced blocked sale" procedure, through which the risk for filling the aircraft is practically shifted to tour operators. In most cases the sale is of the "split charters" type, (i.e. the same flight is sold with separate allotments to several tour operators). In order to take into account the possible changes in non-controllable factors, such as changes in the exchange rate (Euro / USD) and the trend in fuel prices, all contracts are indexed to these parameters and provide, within certain limits or exclusions, an automatic adjustment mechanism of the prices offered to tour operators. Charter flights, both medium and long haul, reach domestic and especially international destinations, with particular reference to the high-end leisure segment, serving passengers travelling for vacation. Meridiana fly - Annual Financial Report at 31 December

16 There are two distinct areas of activity in charter air traffic: Medium-haul flights operated by A320 aircraft: this business traditionally includes flights lasting less than five hours with destinations mainly in Italy, Europe and the Mediterranean basin. Among the main medium-haul destinations operated by Meridiana fly there are the traditional areas of Egypt, Greece, Spain, as well as recent destinations such as Tel Aviv (Israel) and Lourdes (France). The medium haul traffic is characterized by high seasonality (excluding Egypt) associated with the climatic characteristics of the regions that can be reached by medium-haul flights, which make these destinations more popular during the summer than in winter. Long-haul flights operated by A330 aircraft: this business traditionally includes flights longer than five hours with mostly intercontinental destinations. The main long-haul destinations currently operated by the Company with charter flights are in the Indian Ocean, such as the Maldives, Sri Lanka, Kenya, Zanzibar and Mauritius. Scheduled flights Scheduled flights, unlike charter flights described above, cover "Point to Point" routes and fixed destinations. During the 2010 summer season Meridiana fly flights served about 30 destinations in Italy and in Europe, serving both the leisure and business target, by covering market areas that, during the summer season are mainly characterised by tourist traffic, while in winter there is a strong component of ethnic and business traffic. Among the main destinations of Meridiana fly there are several domestic flights starting from various bases (including to and from Sardinia); some destinations with prevailing business traffic (such as flights from Milan Linate to Naples, Palermo, Catania, as well as from Naples to Paris), flights to the Mediterranean countries (Egypt, Greece, Israel), to the east European countries (e.g. for predominantly ethnic traffic to the Republic of Moldova and Kosovo, respectively Pristina and Chisinau and fights from Bologna to Moscow), to countries in Africa (Senegal), as well as scheduled flights to New York (which in the summer are operated from Naples and Palermo). With regard in particular to the Florence-based network, flights are usually operated with A319 aircraft and the main destinations served are London Gatwick, Amsterdam, Barcelona and Catania. Business under the " territorial continuity " regime It should be noted that Meridiana fly also carries out activities covered by the so-called territorial continuity regime, covering flights to and from Sardinia and several cities of the peninsula, Sicily and Minor Islands; within this regime, Meridiana fly fulfils special public service obligations against which it receives periodic government grants designed to ensure the economic and financial balance of the activities carried out by the carrier. In particular, Meridiana fly is currently the assignee for Sardinia routes, from Olbia and Cagliari to Rome and Milan Linate as well as for the peripheral routes Olbia-Bologna, Olbia-Verona, Cagliari-Bologna, Cagliari-Torino Cagliari-Verona, Cagliari-Florence, Cagliari-Napoli and Cagliari -Palermo. Under the territorial continuity regime, it also operates fights from Pantelleria and Lampedusa to Sicily using two ATR42 aircraft in wet lease as well with a directly owned MD-80. As from 10 December 2010, Meridiana fly started to serve the Olbia to Florence and Turin to Venice routes. Meridiana fly will presumably continue to operate the Sardinia routes under the current system of territorial continuity, which expires at the end of March 2011; in fact, the new decrees issued by the Ministry of Transport on 14 January 2011, which provided for a maximum fee with State charges to be applied to non-residents, were repealed, while the current system was instead extended until at least October 2011, according to which the rates provided for in the existing decree will be applied. With regard to the territorial continuity concerning Sicily and the Minor Islands, expiring at the end of March 2011, Meridiana fly is preparing the documentation to participate in the new tender, by reviewing operating procedures and the consequent use of resources (staff / fleet) to meet the new charges imposed by the said tender, notwithstanding the extension of the current regime until at least October Code-sharing activities Scheduled flights cover additional domestic and international destinations, due to a growing number of commercial code-sharing agreements developed in recent years, which currently include Air Malta, Air Moldova, British Airways (on the Florence-London Meridiana fly - Annual Financial Report at 31 December

17 Gatwick route operated by Meridiana fly ), Finnair (on the Florence-Helsinki route operated by Meridiana fly and on flight operated by the Finnish carrier from Italy to Helsinki, as well as agreements for continuing destinations), Wind Jet (exchange of seats on flights between Turin, Verona, Venice and Catania, Palermo, Bucharest and Pristina) and Iberia (on the Florence-Madrid flights operated by Meridiana fly and on flights operated by the Spanish carrier between Milan Linate and Madrid, as well as agreements for continuing destinations). On 31 August 2010 Meridiana fly and Olympic Air, signed a new code-sharing agreement, which provides for the supply of all scheduled flights between Italy and Greece operated by the two companies, to their customers, who can thereby take advantage of both networks Statistics Statistical data on flights performed during the period are shown below; please note: - FY2010 includes 10 months of activity combined with the Aviation Branch contributed by Meridiana, as from March 2010; - the "separate" FY2009 refers to the actual data of the Aviation division operated as former Eurofly; - the "separate" January-February 2010 period only refers to the actual data of the Aviation division operated as former Eurofly.

The changes that took place in the medium haul flights data were largely determined by the contribution of Meridiana Aviation Branch as well as by the greater availability of A320 aircraft during the period (nine-twelve A320 Airbus in 2010, compared to sixeight aircraft in 2009). The changes that took place in long-haul flights (these data are comparable as assets contributed by Meridiana are only medium haul aircraft) show a 15.2% decrease in flight hours, reflecting lower capacity and cancellation of non-profitable routes.

With regard to the MD-82 and A319 aircraft contributed by Meridiana, productivity remains at lower levels compared to the entire 2009 year, partly resulting from the aforementioned problems of integration with Meridiana (e.g. labour unrest, cancellations and delays in the maintenance area, etc...).

Regarding the long-haul (this segment is fully comparable) the number of Meridiana fly passengers in the period was lower by approximately 3.4% reflecting decreased capacity; the overall load factor, however, (the load factor of aircraft) improved Human Resources Organizational Structure During the year the Meridiana fly Group has undergone a significant reorganization process aimed at adjusting the structure and management of the Group to the business combination and to fully respond to future prospects. In particular the offices of Meridiana fly, previously divided between Olbia and Milan, were largely centralized in Sardinia, at the headquarters of the parent company Meridiana S.p.A. in Olbia at the - Costa Smeralda Airport Headquarters, thereby implementing one of the expected synergies of the business combination Employees As shown in the table below, the comparison of the average workforce in 2010 and 2009 is not significant due to the contribution of the Aviation Branch, which entailed a significant transfer of employees from Meridiana (approximately 1070 employees) to Meridiana fly, as well as the transfer of employees from Meridiana fly as a result of the spin-off of the branch of maintenance activities in Meridiana Maintenance (about 80 employees). In 2010 the number of FTE employees was 1,517.3, 1,464.5 of whom related to the parent company Meridiana fly S.p.A. (compared to in 2009 related solely to the former Eurofly), as shown in the table below. In accordance with union agreements, during 2010 the Company applied solidarity contracts for the crew, including the employees transferred from Meridiana through the contribution of the Aviation Branch; these contracts expired between July and September Departure and hiring rates were significantly affected by the reorganization under way.

Some labour tensions, however, did occur, as well as issues about the assignment of flight attendants, which took place after the business combination with Meridiana, resulting from applying, as required by law, Meridiana fly employment contracts instead of those of Meridiana; this caused operational inefficiencies and lower crew productivity, with effects on in-flight service and economic performance. It should also be noted that, as a result of the worsening relations with flight attendants, in 2010 labour disputes increased significantly concerning requests for permanent employment contracts or, for staff already employed on a permanent basis, request for the recognition of seniority as from the beginning of the first fixed-term contract. As mentioned before, the provision for liabilities and charges for the year reflects this situation; in addition, restructuring of these employment relationships is a key objective for the year 2011, so that, as later explained in paragraph 2.26 "Significant events after year-end", on 9 February 2011 Meridiana fly, within the time limit allowed by the legislation in force, initiated the procedure for collective dismissal, with regard to 910 employees divided between ground staff, pilots and flight attendants, including those who were reinstated in their job as a result of the disputes mentioned above. With regard to training, due to the economic downturn and taking also into account the extraordinary period during which the Aviation branch combination was being implemented, it was not possible to develop meaningful training programs for the staff. Meridiana fly - Annual Financial Report at 31 December

20 On the contrary, the "technical" mandatory training, both for ground personnel and for the crew, (such as Basic Courses for noncertified flight attendants, airport security courses, simulator sessions for pilots) continued, focusing in particular on training on the use of Airbus by employees transferred from Meridiana in order to start developing the operational synergies provided by the Plan. The overall cost for external training courses in 2010 was 1,111 thousand. Regarding the legislation on occupational safety (Legislative Decree 81/2008), Meridiana fly and the Group updated the Risk Assessment Report of the various sites in accordance with that legislation, taking into account the business combination and the specific risks of aviation activities as well as the special applicable regulations on Safety and Security. In particular, Meridiana fly and the Group constantly monitor all potential risks, defining the methods to carry out the risk assessment and the characteristics on which the models of organization and management should be based in order to ensure the prevention and protection of workers. This monitoring is done through regular meetings, as required by law, during which the risk assessment reports are examined as well as the trend in occupational accidents and diseases, the selection criteria, the technical features and efficiency of personal protective equipment as well as information and training programs for managers, supervisors and workers. During the year 2010 the Group was not involved in any legal action nor was it subject to significant penalties for occupational diseases; there were no serious accidents at work, nor deaths. Finally, it should be pointed out that the corporate reorganization resulting from the combination of Meridiana and Eurofly air transport operations, notwithstanding the need to maintain some operational and commercial offices in Milan and Malpensa, involved the transfer of the main administrative and management activities, of the staff and the management of Meridiana fly in the Olbia offices, with the aim of achieving staff savings as provided for by the Plan Environment The Airbus fleet used by Meridiana fly, given the level of modernity that characterizes it, complies with current environmental requirements, both in terms of air and noise pollution. Therefore, there are no significant risks with regard to environmental protection that may affect the company's use of its aircraft. Meridiana fly is monitoring the specific legislation that is currently being implemented on Emission Trading (EU Directive 2008/101/EC), which requires airlines to comply with certain organizational and procedural requirements in the near future in order to contribute to limit greenhouse gases emissions on a worldwide scale. In particular, the unification of monitoring reporting required by the regulation is under way, as a result of the contribution of the Aviation branch by Meridiana. With regard to issues of noise pollution, the fleet aircraft are provided with the noise certification, as provided for by the Navigation Code, Title V of the Second Part Air Traffic" and the Royal Decree No 356 of 11 January 1925, which certifies compliance with both European and American regulation. During the year 2010 Meridiana fly was not involved in any legal action nor was it subject to penalties due to environmental damages or crimes. Some of the aspects related to the environmental impact and related legislation are specified below. Reduction of costs caused by ETS by reducing fuel consumption CO2 emissions are directly proportional to fuel consumption, therefore, in order to reduce the economic impact of the entry into force of the Emission Trading Scheme, engines manufacturers are working on technological improvements in aircraft that reduce fuel consumption. In turn, airlines are introducing specific fuel saving maintenance and operational procedures. Meridiana fly has started providing new mobile communication devices to A320/330 Captains and Pilots thereby placing itself among the European airlines most committed in terms of fuel policy. Current efforts to reduce fuel consumption Meridiana fly is currently monitoring all aircraft in the fleet to define optimal consumption and performance. Meridiana fly - Annual Financial Report at 31 December

21 The MD80 and Airbus fleet are using advanced communications systems of the mobile type. Through this information, and an analysis of the operating reports and flight plans it is possible to identify the optimal fuel quantity to fly a given route. Since December 2010 the system for monitoring fuel consumption of each aircraft in the fleet has been improved, with the aim of obtaining a planning tool leading to greater fuel savings Performance of the Parent Company and its subsidiaries As at 31 December 2010, Meridiana fly S.p.A. controls 100% of the share capital of Wokita S.r.l. and Sameitaly S.r.l. (50% of the shares were contributed by Meridiana S.p.A. as part of the capital increase by contribution in kind completed in February 2010, while the previously held interest of 50% was acquired in a prior contribution operation that took place in 2008), 100% of the share capital of EF USA Inc (non-operational), 100% of Meridiana Express S.r.l. (Established in March 2010, also a non-operational company). Meridiana fly also holds a minority interest in Meridiana S.p.A. Maintenance amounting to 16.38% (a subsidiary of Meridiana S.p.A.). The main operating and financial results of the parent company Meridiana fly S.p.A. and its two consolidated subsidiaries for the financial year 2010 are shown in the table below: Data year 2010 Meridiana fly S.p.A. Sameitaly S.r.l. Wokita S.r.l (Separate financial statements) Sales revenue 604,129 4,342 3,888 EBIT (37,834) 6 (785) as a % of revenue -6.3% 0.1% -20.2% Pre-tax profit (loss) (48,735) 58 (521) Net profit (loss) for the year (51,861) (108) (527) Equity 10, Net financial position (20,197) Cash flow for the period 11,312 (28) 31 Capital expenditure 8, For a detailed description of the performance and financial situation of Meridiana fly S.p.A. reference is made to section Key financial performance indicators for FY as these substantially represent the totality of operations, given the not-significant impact of the above mentioned subsidiaries; this is shown in the aforementioned table showing key data from the separate financial statements. Furthermore, the notes referred to in sections 2.3 also contain data resulting from the separate financial statements of the parent company Meridiana fly S.p.A. The performance of the two consolidated subsidiaries is detailed below. The subsidiaries Sameitaly and Wokita, included in these consolidated financial statements with financial effect as from 1 March, 2010, report a net loss for the financial year 2010, mainly due to the continuing economic crisis, the consequent stagnation of demand, including demand for services related to tourism. Sameitaly, formed in late September 2007, acts as general agent (General Sales Agent) for Italy, USA, S. Marino, Canton Ticino, Croatia and Slovenia of Meridiana fly and the tour operator Wokita, with regard to the segment of travel agencies, organizations and businesses with the aim of creating strong group synergies and optimize commercial distribution costs. Sameitaly 2010 turnover from ordinary operations amounted to approximately 4.3 million, with EBIT substantially breaking even (+ 6 thousand) and a net loss of 108 thousand. The travel agencies segment continued to perform poorly due to lower demand, increasingly focused on price, which leads to lower volume and margins for all parties concerned; there have also been extraordinary external events (volcanic cloud effect in April and May), as well as within the Group (start-up issues arising from the business combination with Meridiana Eurofly) that have limited the performance of the subsidiary. Meridiana fly - Annual Financial Report at 31 December

22 Sameitaly continued to carry out sales, promotional and marketing activities throughout the period, expanding its target market to the U.S., while seeking to acquire new customers in segments adjacent to the air transport sector. Wokita, formed in February 2006 to promote the development of the tour operating business via the Internet within the Meridiana Group, operates in the creation and marketing of package tours and the sale, through its portal, of individual services directly to consumers. Meridiana fly currently has business relationships with Wokita for the sale of online tickets and packages. For FY year 2010 Wokita reported a significant reduction in total revenue compared to 2009 ( 3.9 million compared to 6.8 million in 2009) reflecting lower demand, the reorganization process taking place at Group level, and the reduced allotment availability on charter flights. As a result of these factors, EBIT reported a loss of 785 thousand as at 31 December 2010 (compared with a loss of 154 thousand in 2009), closing with a net loss of 527 thousand. Given the interim results for the 2010 financial year, already reporting a severe loss which completely eroded capital, during the year 2010 Meridiana fly carried out a capital contribution of 500 thousand, to be used inter alia to cover losses. In addition Wokita reported an overall loss exceeding one third of the capital, falling within the situation provided for by art bis. In this regard, the Directors proposed to convene the extraordinary shareholders' meeting on 29 April 2011 for appropriate action. Wokita poor performance was in line with current market conditions which penalize tour operators; it also reflected the general stagnation of consumption that led to the decline in demand for tourism products and increased consumers focus on prices as well as competition from various players, with an associated reduction of already tight margins. Moreover, the bankruptcy of classic brands such as I Viaggi del Ventaglio contributed to greater uncertainty among Italian customers who perceive greater risk in relying on tour operators. Wokita is responding to this negative scenario by reorganizing its online and off-line sales including through the strengthening of operational services to consumers and the optimization of products offered as well as through new or renewed marketing and promotional efforts. (e.g. newsletter). In light of these results, the Directors of Meridiana fly S.p.A. deemed it necessary to carry out an impairment test and for this purpose they appointed an independent expert to assess the recoverability - in the manner prescribed by IAS / IFRS - of the carrying amount, as indicated in the separate financial statements, of Samitaly and Wokita subsidiaries as well as the goodwill recognized in the consolidated financial statements in relation to the activities developed by such subsidiaries. The document supporting the impairment test has been examined and approved by the Board of Directors of Meridiana fly on 18 March As described in more detail in the Notes to the separate financial statements of Meridiana fly S.p.A., this document presented an estimate of the recoverable value of the investments - made by determining the value in use through the discounting of cash flows expected from operating activities (resulting from estimates included in the updated subsidiaries Business Plans approved by their respective Boards of Directors on 17 March 2011, which are largely independent of the outcome of the restructuring of operating and overhead costs of Meridiana fly S.p.A.) - which led to a write-down of the value of the investments reported in the separate financial statements of Meridiana fly S.p.A. of 8,575 thousand, of which 4,626 thousand relating to Sameitaly and 3949 thousand to Wokita. In the consolidated financial statements goodwill related to the consolidation and Samitaly and Wokita was written-down by 3,438 thousand, of which 2,003 thousand relating to Sameitaly and 1,435 thousand to Wokita. Lastly, following the contribution of Meridiana's shareholdings in Sameitaly and Wokita, the shareholders' agreement previously signed by Meridiana and Eurofly for the joint control of the two companies has ceased Corporate Offices Following the contribution of Meridiana's air transport operations to Eurofly, the registered and administrative office of Meridiana fly S.p.A., were transferred with effect from 28 February 2010, in Olbia, at the Costa Smeralda Airport Headquarters, which is also the registered office of the parent company Meridiana S.p.A.

Sameitaly S.r.l. has its registered office in Olbia, near the Costa Smeralda Airport Headquarters, while the administrative and commercial activities are carried out in the Milan offices, in Via Bugatti.

24 After the contribution operation Meridiana fly S.p.A. share capital consisted of 680,042,294 ordinary shares, of which 536,628,025 (representing 78.91% of the capital itself) owned by Meridiana S.p.A. In addition to creating a single entity that would include the aviation activities, the reorganization included: 1) the signing of a new joint venture agreement with SFIRS S.p.A. - Società Finanziaria Industriale Rinascita Sardegna - Iberia Lineas Aereas de Espana SA and Meridiana S.p.A. for the organization and management of maintenance activities through the newly formed Meridiana Maintenance; 2) the establishment on 9 March 2010 of Meridiana express S.r.l., with a minimum share capital of 10 thousand, a wholly owned subsidiary of Meridiana fly to which the MD-82 aircraft in the Meridiana fly fleet were to be transferred. Meridian Express S.r.l. is not currently operational due to the revision of the group's business plan, as explained in the following section New Business Plan Following the completion in late February 2010 of the above extraordinary operations (transfer of the Aviation Branch and spin-off of the MRO maintenance business), starting from 1 March 2010, for about 10 days, significant labour protest by workers took place that resulted in more than 80 cancellations of scheduled flights, flight delays in general, as a consequence thereof and of personnel shifts, causing a worsening of productivity and punctuality / regularity parameters. The above protest, which ceased due to the opening of negotiations with trade unions on new employment contracts for Meridiana Maintenance staff and former Meridiana staff transferred to Meridiana fly, had a negative non-recurring impact on the Company's results of approximately 1.5 million Volcano eruption in Iceland Due to the eruption of the Eyjafjallajökull volcano, located in Iceland, which took place in mid-april 2010 and the subsequent emission of ash and silicon dust which were deemed dangerous to the safety of flights in Europe, the air space was closed first in northern Europe and later in southern Europe for about 10 days and fully reopened on 20 April This flights interruption resulted in significant losses for the airlines, the airports and the tourism industry in general, having involved a total of 313 airports. The IATA (International Air Transport Association) estimates that airlines in general have lost revenue of USD 1.7 billion ( 1.26 billion). Meridiana fly was significantly affected by the extraordinary volcanic cloud as, in addition to having to cancel over 350 flights, almost exclusively medium-haul flights, and reschedule the flights among the various airports (without revenue), it also organized flights to recover passengers. The lost revenue is estimated at approximately 4.5 million, while the lost margin, net of savings in variable costs, but gross of the estimated costs of refunding and re-booking passengers, can be estimated at approximately 3 million Renewal of the Board of Directors and appointment of the new CEO On 30 April 2010, the Shareholders Meeting renewed the Board of Directors, which will remain in office for one financial year, setting at nine the number of its members. The following candidates included in the list submitted by the parent company Meridiana were appointed: Marco Rigotti, as Chairman of the Board of Directors, Claudio Allais, Giancarlo Arduino, Massimo Chieli, Giuseppe Lomonaco, Claudio Miorelli, Luca Ragnedda, Franco Trivi and Salvatore Vicari. On the same date, the Board of Directors granted powers and responsibilities, appointing Massimo Chieli as CEO, confirming Franco Trivi as Vice-President of the Company and finally granting the director Claudio Miorelli the mandate for the management of the company's external and press relations Capital increase Meridiana fly - Annual Financial Report at 31 December

25 On 13 July 2010 Consob announced the authorization to publish the Prospectus relating to (i) the admission to listing of 325,247,524 ordinary shares, issued on 1 March 2010, resulting from the capital increase by contribution in kind, for an amount of approximately million carried out at the end of February 2010 and (ii) rights offering to shareholders and admission to trading of the shares resulting from the paid divisible capital increase, in accordance with the powers granted by resolution of the Extraordinary Shareholders' Meeting on 3 November 2009, as amended on 21 December On 25 August 2010 Meridiana fly announced the completion of the rights offering associated with the cash capital increase, including the partial underwriting of unsubscribed rights. Following this operation, the new share capital of Meridiana fly is 20,901,419.34, represented by 1,394,086,688 ordinary shares, with no par value. The parent company Meridiana S.p.A. holds a 78.05% controlling interest in Meridiana fly, directly owning 1,088,108,395 shares Difficult connections to Greece In the second half of July, for a few days connections between the Italian airports and those of Greece main resorts were disrupted by some technical problems related to air traffic control. Meridiana fly activities to Greece, and indirectly to Egypt, where the company is a leader in leisure traffic from Italy, also suffered from such conditions resulting in delays and cancellations of rotations; the company's flights directly or indirectly involved in this situation were 44 as well as 8,000 customers, whom the Company constantly assisted and kept informed Issues in fleet management Due to labour unrest resulting from the business combination, with reference to the maintenance management and service sector subject to spin-off, some planned maintenance on MD-82 aircraft was postponed. In addition there were delays in delivery and commissioning of new A320 aircraft caused by the postponement of the integration process between Meridiana and Eurofly; therefore, the lease contracts selection and negotiation which had been suspended during the previous months, could only resume in the month of March As a result of the above, during the months of July and August 2010 the company had to make greater use of wet-lease temporary contracts with other companies in the period of maximum activity: this resulted in additional costs for non-recurring wetlease charges and accessories for approximately 1,600 thousand Adoption of Forecast updated as of June 2011 and concurrent commitments by AKFED At the end of August 2010, when it approved the Half-year financial report, the Board of Directors approved an updated forecast for the next twelve months (until the end of June 2011), in order to take into account the most recent expectations on macroeconomic developments and traffic, as well as the actual data of the first half of the year. The new estimates did not change the basic strategy of the previous business plan nor the forecast presented in the Prospectus for the cash and in kind capital increase, nor the expectations on cost savings that would result from the said plan. From the review of prospective data contained in the Forecast as at 30 June 2011 the complete erosion of the equity of Meridiana fly and the Group emerged as well as a temporary cash imbalance- additional with respect to what was envisaged in the Business Plan - of approximately 27 million; the provision of this additional requirement was guaranteed by AKFED (financial institution controlled by the major shareholder SA Karim Aga Khan) with irrevocable letters of commitment dated 26 August Through these commitments AKFED renewed its financial and capital support to the Company on the basis of the new needs arising from the 30June 2011 Forecast; these commitments are as follows: against the original commitment by Meridiana S.p.A. to underwrite the newly issued shares not subscribed by the market up to a maximum of 40 million, AKFED informed the Directors of Meridiana fly that it will not reduce the overall AKFED Meridiana fly - Annual Financial Report at 31 December

26 total financial commitment to an extent equivalent to the value of the shares subscribed by the market up to a maximum of 8.5 million. As the value of newly issued shares subscribed by the market amounted to approximately 9.1 million, AKFED is committed to disburse 8.5 million as non-interest bearing subordinated loan either directly or through Meridiana S.p.A., with maturity set at 31 December Following this commitment, on 12 November 2010, AKFED, through the parent company Meridiana S.p.A., disbursed at the request of the Company, an interest free loan amounting to 8,500 thousand. With the objective of ensuring the capital and financial balance appropriate for operating as a going concern for a period of at least 12 months, AKFED informed the Directors of Meridiana fly that it would take an irrevocable commitment to provide financial resources to Meridiana fly - either directly, if it is a shareholder of the Company or through Meridiana S.p.A. - for additional 19 million. This firm commitment may be fulfilled by subscribing a new capital increase or in any other form that allows the company to reach the capital and financial balance necessary for a going concern. In the event that the financing takes the form of a loan, this shall have to be repaid by 31 August, 2016 or partially or fully repaid before that date but after 31 December 2011, should the Company have structural cash surplus compared to the condition of financial equilibrium; the interest will be determined at Euribor plus 200 basis points and shall be paid quarterly. With regard to this second commitment, to date the Company has received the following payments as advances for future capital increase by Meridiana S.p.A., which completely fulfil the above commitment: - 5 million on 13 December 2010; million on 25 January 2011; million on 24 February 2011; These payments were recorded as shareholders' equity at the dates they were received. As further confirmation of the support from the parent company Meridiana S.p.A. and from the major shareholder, as further explained in section Business Outlook, on 22 March 2011, the company received an additional advance payment for future capital increase of 15 million, which was also recorded as shareholders' equity Defining the balance due on the contribution During the month of October 2010 the process of joint verification of the balance sheet items of the Aviation Branch was completed. Such review resulted in a net balance due by Meridiana fly to Meridiana S.p.A. of 5,627 thousand, mainly related to changes occurred in the accounting items being contributed between the valuation date of the Aviation Branch and the date of the actual transfer thereof. This debt was paid on 12 November 2010, in accordance with contractual provisions. For more details please refer to section "Balance sheet for the contribution of the Aviation Branch" in the Notes Agreement with SEA On 4 October 2010 the litigation with SEA S.p.A. - Società Esercizi Aeroportuali- was amicably settled - as described in Section Significant Litigation -to which reference is made. The above mentioned settlement agreement resulted in a benefit of approximately 1.1 million from the write-off of the existing debt, reflected in the income statement for the fourth quarter of Termination of the agreement with Lauda Livingston Meridiana fly - Annual Financial Report at 31 December

27 Due to the problems of the Livingston airline to continue operating as a going concern pursuant to the Community legislation on air transport, with effect from 14 October 2010 the Civil Aviation Authority decided to suspend the aviation license of the aforementioned company. Meridiana fly therefore notified the termination of the code sharing collaboration on the Caribbean and Indian Ocean area, which, by the way, had already been reduced compared to the previous year due to a different business organization; the company started the necessary legal proceedings to protect its interests represented by the remaining trade receivables to be recovered for approximately 0.3 million, which were taken into account in updating the estimates of the provision for bad debt Agreement with Opera Romana Pellegrinaggi During the fourth quarter of 2010, the Company signed an agreement with the Opera Romana Pellegrinaggi (O.R.P.), the organization of the Vicariate of Rome, which promotes and organizes pilgrimages.

31 2.16. Regulation on transactions with related parties With Decision No of 12 March 2010 and by subsequent resolution No of 23 June 2010, Consob approved the regulation on transactions with related parties, with the goal of determining rules designed to ensure transparency as well as procedural and substantial fairness of transactions with related parties in order to strengthen the protection of minority shareholders and other stakeholders. The regulation's objective is to organize the rules referring to: (i) the principles relating to the procedures that companies must adopt in order to ensure that transactions with related parties are carried out at fair terms, namely the procedural system, (ii) the obligations regarding disclosure to the market of this type of transactions, namely the transparency system. As regards the procedural system, the regulation requires the Boards of Directors to adopt procedures that ensure the transparency and procedural fairness of transactions with related parties, providing for the establishment of a committee composed exclusively of non- executive, not-related, mostly independent, directors who will give advice, although not binding, on the suitability and fairness of the transactions in question. For transactions of lesser importance there is a special procedure, which provides, inter alia, that the Committee expresses a nonbinding reasoned opinion on the Issuer's interest in the transaction and the suitability and substantial fairness thereof; in addition disclosure should be provided at least quarterly to Directors and Statutory Auditors on implemented transactions and an information document should be disclosed to the public containing information on transactions that are carried out despite the negative opinion of the Committee. For more significant transactions a special more rigorous procedure is adopted, that requires, inter alia, greater involvement of the aforementioned Committee, composed entirely of independent and not related directors, even in the preliminary stage as well as its positive opinion on the transaction; where the governing body intends to approve the most significant transactions despite the negative opinion of the Committee, the transaction must be approved by the Shareholders' Meeting. With regard to transparency vis à vis the market and with regard to the most significant transactions, the regulation introduced the requirement for an immediate disclosure describing the characteristics of the transaction, the economic rationale thereof and the cost-effectiveness to the Issuer as well as a periodic reporting included in the interim or annual report on operations, disclosing, with respect to the reporting period, information on individual most significant transactions carried out with related parties, on the other related party transactions that materially affected the financial position or results of the company, any change or development of related party transactions previously carried out that had a significant effect on the financial position or results of the company. In order to meet this new regulation, the Board of Directors of Meridiana fly at its meeting on 18 October 2010 approved the establishment of a special committee composed of three independent non-executive directors. Furthermore Meridiana fly, after an analysis of the legislation and the Group's structure aimed at identifying related parties, has implemented the following activities, during the financial year: mapping of activities and processes for the prior identification of transactions with related parties; definition and elaboration of operational and control procedures concerning related parties in order to implement the authorization and information flows to be submitted to the corporate bodies and the Market; drafting of the Group Regulation; implementation of measures concerning the organization, the processes and the information systems necessary to adequately comply with the legislation in question. Finally, Meridiana fly adopted all the procedures and transparency rules in the meeting of the Board of Directors on 26 November 2010, so that the new decision-making mechanisms are implemented as of 1 January Meridiana fly - Annual Financial Report at 31 December

32 2.17. Significant litigation The Meridiana fly Group is involved in a number of commercial legal actions brought by and against it, and in tax litigation against which, as better explained in the Explanatory Notes, the provisions for doubtful debt, for liabilities and charges and payables recognized in the financial statements, are considered adequate, despite the inherent uncertainty of estimation procedures. The most significant litigation concerning receivables is described below. Essevi S.r.l. (formerly Teorema Tour S.p.A.) With reference to the arbitration proceedings brought by Meridiana fly against Teorema Tour S.p.A. to recover a receivable of approximately 3 million and USD 3 million in flights, as well as a credit for penalties on flights cancellations, totalling 14.7 million (which is not recognized in the balance sheet), the arbitration board on 25 November 2009 issued an arbitration award in favour of the Company ordering Essevi S.r.l. (formerly Teorema Tour S.p.A.) to pay a total sum exceeding 11.8 million. Following the bankruptcy, declared on September 2009, of Teorema S.a.s. and its general partner Essevi S.r.l., all actions undertaken by the Company to protect its claims were interrupted, including the revocatory action on the sale of real estate by Essevi S.r.l. On 23 December 2009 the company submitted proofs of debt in the bankruptcy. At the hearing on 28 April 2010 the claim was admitted for 11,983 thousand. By order of 16 June 2010 the Bankruptcy Judge declared the enforceability of claims. On 17 February 2011 the Receiver prepared the interim report for the second half of 2010, which shows the potential partial recoverability of the claim, although in the medium to long term, subject to successful completion of the revocatory actions currently in progress. MG Viaggi S.r.l. (In liquidation) Following the arbitration proceedings initiated by Meridiana fly in October 2006, by means of ruling on 26 November 2008 the arbitration board ordered MG Viaggi S.r.l. to pay to the Company the total sum of 1.1 million and 75% of legal costs. The award was declared enforceable and enforcement procedures were initiated for recovering the credit. On 23 June 2009 MG Viaggi S.r.l. was placed in voluntary liquidation. On 25 September 2009, the Company filed an application asking that MG Viaggi S.r.l. be declared bankrupt. At the hearing on 15 June 2010, date set for the declaration of bankruptcy, the judge acknowledged of the application for admission to the composition procedure by MG Viaggi S.r.l., and postponed the hearing to 26 October 2010, which was further postponed to On 1 February 2011 hearing for the approval of the arrangement requested by MG Viaggi S.r.l. was held; however, due to the lack of formalization of the transfer of MG S.r.l. receivable - which should have been given as guarantee backing the arrangement - the hearing was postponed to 24 February 2011; during this hearing MG Viaggi S.r.l. provided evidence for the formalization of the transfer of receivable.

In relation to the existing litigation with the Alitalia group, the following should be noted: Alitalia - Linee Aeree Italiane S.p.A. in receivership The dispute regards 10 injunctions issued in favour of Alitalia in receivership against Meridiana fly for a total amount of 2.6 million. Following the start of the receivership procedure, all the proceedings initiated by the Company to object to the injunctions were broken off and then recommenced in the second half of With regard to the proceedings pending before the Court of Rome, six hearings were adjourned to January 2013, the other two hearings were scheduled between May and June 2011; one was defined with a ruling that admitted the objection of settlement through arbitration raised by the Company and declared the invalidity of the injunction; with regard to the proceedings pending before the Court of Milan, at the hearing on 27 October 2010 the judge reserved the decision. As for the proofs of debt lodged in the Alitalia insolvency proceedings for a total sum of 7.3 million, the discussion on the admission thereof was postponed for further investigation and examination at the hearing on 16 December, 2009, in which the Bankruptcy Judge stated that a decision would be taken on the merit of each application only at the end of the examination of all the applications presented. Therefore, there is no substantial news on the progress of such litigation against which no further liabilities are expected since the related liabilities have already been fully recognized. Alitalia Servizi S.p.A. in receivership Meridiana lodged proof of debt in the arrangement proceedings of Alitalia Servizi for an unsecured claim of 65 thousand, deriving from unpaid invoices. It also asked the Official Receiver, by means of a claim for restitution, the return of a number of MD82 aircraft components on the basis of the technical assistance contract signed on 27 April 2007, with which Alitalia Servizi S.p.A. had undertaken to provide services for the maintenance and reconditioning of aircraft components owned by Meridiana. The proceedings are at the stage of due investigation to verify the basis of this last request as well as admission of the proofs of debt. The receivables were fully written down.

Following the declaration of enforceability of claims in the Alitalia proceedings, we are waiting for the Official Receiver to notify the outcome of our application. Overall, the receivables from Alitalia Group in extraordinary administration recognised in the separate and consolidated financial statements amounted to 1.7 million and were fully written down. With reference to other types of disputes, the most significant of them are discussed below. GCVA former shareholders of EF-USA Litigation initiated by the Company, on 11 September 2009, before the Court of New York, for the recovery of a receivable due by EF-USA for approximately USD 2.4 million, relating to sales of air transport services of Meridiana fly made by EF-USA Meridiana fly - Annual Financial Report at 31 December

37 on the American market during 2009 and to the balance of the sales made in 2008 pursuant to the terms and conditions of the Service Agreement in force with the Company. On 19 October 2009 EF-USA filed an appearance submitting a counterclaim for compensation for damages for a total of USD 935 thousand. The proceedings, following disagreements between EF-USA shareholders, in particular between Meridiana fly and GCVA, were suspended by the judge in order to enable further legal actions regarding the ownership of and control over EF-USA. Meridiana fly, which held 49% of the share capital of EF-USA, in fact, with a letter dated 4 February 2010 following the resignations from their respective positions of the top managers of EF-USA, who were also holders through GCVA of a 51% interest in the share capital of EF-USA exercised the option provided for in the shareholders agreement signed with CGVA, in order to become sole shareholder of EF-USA. As of today GCVA has disputed the above acquisition and on 8 April 2010 Meridiana fly therefore initiated proceedings before the American Arbitration Association in New York, requesting to be declared the owner of 100% of the share capital of EF-USA and to enjoin GCVA to cooperate in order to ensure full control over the capital and assets of EF-USA by the latter new management, under the direction of Meridiana fly. In the meantime the top managers of EF-USA initiated an arbitration procedure against EF-USA requesting USD 640 thousand and USD 351 thousand respectively on the basis of their employment contracts with EF-USA. Meridiana fly was summoned to appear before the court as guarantor of the obligations taken by EF-USA. The consolidation of the above arbitrations is currently being verified by the organizations involved. It is believed, according to the advice of our lawyers, that the Group has a reasonable chance to recover the amounts recognised in the financial statements, taking into account the provisions for liabilities already set aside. Employment law litigation As already mentioned, with reference to the employment law litigation of Meridiana fly, most of the disputes involved the recognition of permanent contracts of employees repeatedly hired under fixed-term contracts and the request for the recognition of seniority for past periods by staff with permanent contracts. With regard to the first type of disputes, Meridiana fly provided for the reinstatement of a large number of employees, mostly belonging to the crew, pursuant to the news rules contained in Law 183/2010 ("work legislation attachment"). It is believed that, in light of the legislation in question, the provisions for liabilities and charges set aside in this financial statements for 12.1 million (of which 5.4 million set aside in the year) are reasonable, reflecting the best estimate of liabilities which we deem, also on the basis of the opinion of the Company's legal advisors, the Company may incur in case of adverse outcome of outstanding disputes, although the progress of the litigation is extremely diverse and constantly evolving. With reference to the dispute with trade unions on the application of Meridiana's employment contract to employees who were transferred to Meridiana fly, the risk of a final adverse outcome in the proceedings before the competent bodies to date is only possible, since, in relation to such proceedings, on the basis of the opinion of the Company's legal advisors, and within the framework of the European Union and national legislation, there are in legal practice and in case law guidelines favourable to the Company's position. For this reason, no provision for risks relating to that litigation has been allocated in the Company's financial statements. Litigation with passengers Finally, there are other legal proceedings brought by passengers for compensation for damages, for which the Company, albeit in the climate of uncertainty surrounding any lawsuit, set aside provisions for liabilities and charges that it considers adequate to cover the estimated liabilities taking into account historical data on this kind of charges.

The internal committees can draw on the services of external advisors and can be endowed with adequate resources within the limits of a budget established by the Board of Directors. They consist of three members. The committees currently in place are: a) Compensation Committee - Albeit in the absence of a specific by-law provision in this respect, on 30 April 2009 the Board of Directors, in compliance with the guidance contained in the Code of Conduct, passed a resolution appointing the new members of the Compensation Committee. The latter had been previously set up by Board resolution of 16 March 2007, which also approved the regulation governing the committee s tasks and operation. b) Internal Auditing Committee. Board resolution of April 30, 2010, the Board of Directors has appointed the members of the Audit Committee, already established by resolution of July 18, 2006, and adopted by resolution of the Board on 16 March 2007 the regulations governing the tasks and functioning of the Committee.

Meridiana fly - Annual Financial Report at 31 December

43 The procedure defines the guidelines and criteria for analysing and performing transactions with related parties; it also defines the roles, responsibilities and operating procedures to ensure, for such transactions, adequate transparency as well as procedural and substantial fairness. The above procedure has been published on the Company's website to which the reader should refer for details. Internal control system The Board of Directors sets the guidelines for the internal control system namely the set of rules, procedures and organisational structures that, through an appropriate process of identification, measurement, management and monitoring of key risks, facilitate a healthy and fair management of the business, consistent with the company's stated objectives. In order to monitor the efficiency of business operations, the reliability of financial information, legal and regulatory compliance as well as the safeguarding of corporate assets, the Board of Directors is responsible for the prevention and management of business risks concerning the Issuer. By defining guidelines for the internal control system it ensures that such risks are properly identified and adequately measured, monitored, managed and assessed. The Board also regularly checks and assesses the internal control system s adequacy, efficacy and effective operation. In this respect the Company has put in place organisational and information systems that overall ensure adequate monitoring of the administrative system and guarantee the adequacy and reliability of accounting records as well as compliance with procedures by the various company functions. Independent auditors.

45 2.25. Main risks and uncertainties for the current year In conducting its business, the Company and the Group are exposed to risks and uncertainties stemming from external factors relating to the general macroeconomic environment or specific to the industry sectors in which operations take place. It is also exposed to risks stemming from strategic decisions and internal operating risks. The identification and mitigation of such risks was systematically performed by the departments concerned, to allow for a timely management of any emerging risk. Among business risks, the main risks identified, monitored and managed by Meridiana fly are the following: 1. Risk associated with the implementation of the business combination During 2010, the Company and the Group underwent a major reorganisation following the combination of the Meridiana air transportation business with Eurofly. The process of combining the organisation, procedures and personnel of the two companies, a process which is still under way, entails risks related to industrial and management issues that may emerge in the future, remaining implementation stages; all of this may result in a partial or incomplete implementation of development activities with material effects on expected results. In particular, with reference to the strategic actions envisaged in the New Business Plan , the actions for the containment of personnel cost and the negotiation of suppliers payables past due, albeit dependent on management actions, are subject to uncertainties inherent in negotiations with counterparties, including in litigation, which could slow down the execution of the plan. All this could lead to partial or incomplete implementation of development activities with significant effects on the expected results and the adequacy of the support provided by Meridiana S.p.A. and the major Shareholder to ensure that the company may continue to operate as a going concern in the foreseeable future. 2. Risks associated with the contribution of the Aviation Branch and the recoverability of goodwill A significant amount of assets in the financial statements at 31 December 2010 is represented by the goodwill recorded following the business combination with Meridiana Aviation Branch. The value attributed to goodwill depends on the achievement of incremental cash flows resulting from the synergies expected on the basis of the New Business Plan compared to cash flows that could have been achieved separately by the two airlines. In this regard, as best illustrated in the Notes to the consolidated and separate financial statements, the Directors believe that - even in the restructuring environment underlying the short-term strategies of the New Business Plan (see Section New Business Plan ) - there are significant synergies related to the reduction of overheads, the unification of labour agreements, the increased efficiency of the fleet operations and productivity (through reduction of MD-80 aircraft ) with a focus on more profitable destinations. These synergies reduce the expected losses that would have been achieved if the business combination had not taken place, although in the short term they do not bring the Company back to a financial equilibrium. On the other hand, given the significant negative cash flow expected over the period spanned by the plan and mainly concentrated in the year 2011 when the restructuring impacts the most, the goodwill impairment test was carried out by the independent expert - appointed for the study as prescribed by IAS / IFRS - based on the fair value of the Company, determined on the basis of stock market prices using as control method the multiples of comparable companies. This study led the directors to confirm the value of goodwill recognized in the financial statements. It cannot be ruled out that the fair value of the Company - as determined by the methods mentioned above - may in the short term, contract as a result of significant expected losses (see Section 2.28 Business Outlook); this would lead to the realisation of significant write-downs not envisaged, as of today, in the New Business Plan and therefore not considered for the purposes of determining the commitments made by Meridiana S.p.A. and the Major Shareholder in order to ensure that the company continue to operate as a going concern in the foreseeable future. 3. Risks associated with the uncertainty related to the hypothetical assumptions underlying the new Business Plan The expected and estimated results of the New Business Plan approved on 18 March 2011 by the Board of Directors of Meridiana fly are based on a hypothetical set of assumptions about future events that may not occur and actions of the company's directors and management that may not be undertaken, in whole or in part. Meridiana fly - Annual Financial Report at 31 December

46 It should be noted in this regard, that the actual and full implementation of the New Business Plan and the achievement of expected results, expected synergies and planned objectives may depend on economic conditions or events that the Company and the Group cannot foresee or control, such as, for example, the trend of the Euro/USD exchange rate, of interest rates and the cost of jet fuel, of the load factor of the aircraft as well as the level of average revenues. In particular, the forecasts contained in the New Business Plan are based on internal assessments with respect to future events which are subject to uncertain variables that are outside the control of the directors and the management of the Company and the Group. The uncertainty associated with the occurrence of future events may also produce significant deviations between forecasts and actual values. Consequently, if one or more of the assumptions underlying the forecasts on which the New Business Plan is based, do not materialize, or should they occur only in part, the Company and the Group may not achieve the expected objectives and/or fail to meet the synergies assumed. The expected results may therefore differ, even significantly, from the forecasts. Failure to achieve the objectives set in the New Business Plan , the expected synergies and/or the estimated results could impact negatively on the financial and equity position of Meridiana fly and its business, with possible repercussions on the ability of the company to operate as a going concern in the foreseeable future, and within the specific time span of the plan. 4. Risk associated with the territorial continuity Some connections operated by Meridiana fly between the airports of Olbia, Cagliari, Lampedusa and Pantelleria and other Italian airports are governed by the so-called territorial continuity regime; this is a legal instrument aimed at ensuring, for specific categories of users, favourable conditions of access to air transport services on certain routes, even in exchange of government grants to companies that operate on these routes. The renewal of the tenders (usually held annually) and any changes in the applicable regulations and the relevant provisions by ENAC or the regions concerned (for example in terms of further liberalization of the routes or a single rate imposed for residents and non-residents) may have significant impact on the activities and results of Meridiana fly and the Group. 5. Risk associated with financial management On 23 December 2010 Meridiana fly signed an agreement with Banca Nazionale del Lavoro S.p.A., UniCredit S.p.A. and Intesa Sanpaolo S.p.A., which would extend the 15 million loan expired on 27 November 2010 for an additional 36 months and a new financing agreement for a revolving credit facility of up to 7.5 million with duration of 18 months. This agreement allowed rescheduling of Meridiana fly's debt, which was previously characterized by a current component considerably larger than the long term component. In this regard it should be noted that failure to achieve the objectives envisaged in the new Business Plan could result in failure to meet the financial parameters and other conditions in the above-mentioned loan agreements. Such an event may, at the discretion of the lending banks, entail the immediate repayment of the loans in question. Nevertheless, a negative net working capital and a significant amount of loans overdue, may lead to situations of financial stress associated with difficulties for the Company to fulfil its obligations promptly and at cost-effective conditions, even taking into account the commitments made by Meridiana S.p.A. and the major Shareholder on 23 March In addition, specific problems of trading partners (tour operators, financial intermediaries that deal with the collection of payments through credit cards, etc.) may lead to failure to collect receivables or to collection delays. Finally, additional financing requirements arising from adverse changes in external, non-controllable variables - such as the volatility of fuel prices, the exchange rates/interest rates, the load factor, the average unit revenue per passenger (scheduled flights), and revenue per flight hour (charter flights) - may affect negatively the ability of the Company and the Group to meet their obligations due to insufficient support provided by Meridiana S.p.A. and the major Shareholder in order for the company to continue to operate as a going concern in the foreseeable future. 6. Risks associated with relations with trade unions As a rule, the air transport business is highly subject to workers strikes or other events of conflict that may lead to service disruptions or operating inefficiencies; this was the case in the first six months of 2010 following the business combination of Meridiana Aviation Branch with Eurofly and the concurrent spin-off of maintenance activities (MRO) in a new company. The sector Meridiana fly - Annual Financial Report at 31 December

47 is historically subject to repeated periods of labour tension. One cannot rule out services disruptions caused by trade union activities, with a resulting negative impact on operations and results of the Company and the Group, especially in light of the personnel reduction and reorganisation that were announced. This will be even more so during the restructuring that will characterize the year 2011 as more fully described in paragraph Personnel reduction plan. 7. Risks dependent on non-controllable variables The results of Meridiana fly and the Group are contingent upon a number of macroeconomic variables (trends in the economic cycle, exchange rates, interest rates, oil prices), which are not directly controllable. Despite the contractual and trade arrangements (such as tariff adjustments provided for in the agreements with tour operators or fuel surcharges) designed to curb these risks, the Company and the Group are nevertheless partly exposed to the effects of an adverse trend in these variables. The occurrence of these circumstances, combined with the prevalence of fixed costs compared to variables ones, can result in pressure on margins and overall profitability, as already occurred in 2009 and In view of this, the Company and the Group undertake actions aimed at improving the efficiency of the operating leverage in order to mitigate the effect of lower revenues on margins; they also monitor the impacts on the going concern basis to enable timely actions necessary for the company to continue operating as a going concern. Unpredictable trends in these variables (and, in particular, given the current crisis, the cost of jet fuel) could result in failure to achieve the objectives set in the New Business Plan , with possible repercussions on the ability of the Company to continue operate as a going concern in the foreseeable future and in the stated time span of the plan. 8. Risk relating to competitiveness Air transport is characterised by strong competition, which has grown over the last few years following the evolution of the industry and increasing liberalisation of air routes; competition is mainly brought by carriers already operating in the market as well as new carriers or new means of connection. In light of the current stagnation of the economic cycle and limited public spending capacity, airlines are trying to protect their business volume, intensifying price competition. This is reflected in an increasing pressure on prices and consequent tension on margins. The Company and the Group confront this situation by stepping up the offer of specific destinations, thus reinforcing their position and placing themselves as a privileged interlocutor of tour operators and passengers for these specific routes; at the same time they improve the quality of on-board services in order to obtain a competitive position in line with higher prices. 9. Risks associated with attacks / disasters / political events or serious accidents The occurrence of natural disasters, epidemics, terrorist attacks or other adverse political events, especially in countries outside Europe, which being major tourist attractions, are subject to significant demand for air travel, may cause, generally in the shortmedium term (depending on the seriousness of events) a significant downturn in consumer demand for air transport. The Company and the Group, although they diversify the services offered in terms of covered geographical areas, are exposed to the risk that the occurrence of such events may lead to adverse financial and earnings effects. Finally, as an inherent aspect of the air transport business, there is the risk, albeit remote, of the occurrence of more or less serious incidents relating to the fleet, the occurrence of which could affect the ability of the company to continue operating as a going concern. 10. Commercial risks In view of the strong exposure to the tour operating business, which is covered by the charter activities of Meridiana fly, the Company and the Group are exposed to possible negative developments in this sector (such as the trend towards disintermediation of the tourism business in favour of "do it yourself" approaches or the tendency towards industry concentration, leading to gradually fewer operators). Meridiana, however, thanks to its established presence and in-depth knowledge of the industry has successfully increased business with the most important and reliable tour operators, giving greater assurance of contractual compliance (contracts are in any case always covered by performance deposits and suretyships provided by tour operators and by clauses providing for cash-in before the flight and possibly also the power to suspend the flight in the event of non-payment) Meridiana fly - Annual Financial Report at 31 December

48 Against the benefits in terms of counterparty solidity resulting from focusing on the top tour operators, there is the risk of possible discontinuation of dealings with one of these customers, fewer in number but relatively more significant in terms of business for the Company For example, the top 5 tour operators accounted for about 52% of the Company's charter traffic in Risk associated with the occurrence of operational disruption The Company and the Group are exposed to the risk of occurrence of operational disruption. This may concern problems regarding both the fleet with the risk of temporary suspension of normal operations as well as the non-fulfilment or partial fulfilment in the provision of services/supplies by third-party operators In this regard it should be noted that Meridiana outsources some services (air traffic control, management of airport services and ground services, catering, maintenance services) concerning ground operations, consisting of preparatory flight activities for passengers, baggage and cargo in the airport, as well as for the efficient maintenance of the aircraft. There is therefore a risk of failure or inadequate monitoring on the output of the service rendered by third parties. Additional operational and commercial difficulties that may arise, which may be accentuated by the seasonality of the business, may make it difficult to handle the adverse event, including the cost of re-booking passengers. In order to reduce these risks, Meridiana fly, has developed agreements with other carriers and suppliers that guarantee their support in case of operational adverse events, especially in foreign airports. 12. Operating management risks The Group is exposed to a series of risks concerning, among others: 1) the possibility of fraud relating to credit collection for sales completed via credit cards, whose risk is managed by means of good knowledge of such occurrences and the elimination of the collection channel in the more serious cases, or by agreements with parties specialised in managing such events; 2) failure to comply with regulations in the event of amendments or incorrect interpretation of the same, both in the purely business sphere and, more generically, as regards our status as a listed company. This risk is managed by means of internal and external control systems, also with the aid of advisors who ensure compliance with current regulations; 3) a major dependence on information systems to ensure an adequate, seamless and efficient air transport service. For this risk, the Company has implemented back-up and constant-assistance procedures, also with the aid of specialised providers; 4) the importance of relations with trade unions, which are particularly active in the flight personnel category and, in the case of union tensions, including in relation to possible restructuring plans, can affect the Company s operations and the expected results From this point of view, the Company has set up a dialogue-based approach with trade unions with the aim of ensuring respect of workers rights as part of an effective and efficient management of the value generation processes of the Group. 13. Financial risks With regard to the financial risks not previously discussed, it should be noted that the Company and the Group, while monitoring and managing these risks in the most effective way is exposed to the following financial risks associated with its operations: credit risk: it refers to the risk of insolvency of a counterparty or the deterioration of the attributed credit rating ; market risks: resulting from the exposure to fluctuating interest and exchange rates; liquidity risk: in terms of reduced availability of financial resources and access to the credit market. These financial risks impact directly on the ability in the foreseeable future to manage the business while preserving a financial and equity balance which is a prerequisite to operate as a going concern and therefore represents a significant risk for the Group. Given these risks, however, it should be noted that Meridiana S.p.A. and the major Shareholder have always in the past supported the Company, as also demonstrated by the commitments made on 23 March 2011 in response to the needs of liquidity and equity balancing emerging from the New Business Plan in the foreseeable future. 14. Environmental and safety risks As regards environmental risks, reference should be made to section Environment With regard to issues of safety at work, the Company and the Group are committed to safeguard occupational safety, in accordance with Italian Legislative Decree no.81 of 9 April 2008 (Italian Consolidated Safety Act) and with specific regulations, including through the implementation of the organisational, management and control model envisaged by Legislative Decree no. 231 of 8 June With specific regard to issues of health and safety of workers in the workplaces, the Company and the Group Meridiana fly - Annual Financial Report at 31 December

49 constantly monitor all potential risks, the risk assessment procedures, and the characteristics necessary for organisational and management models in order to ensure prevention and workers protection. This monitoring is done through regular meetings, as required by law, during which the risk assessment reports are examined as well as the trend in occupational accidents and diseases, the selection criteria, the technical features and efficiency of personal protective equipment as well as information and training programs for managers, supervisors and workers Significant events subsequent to year end The main events that occurred subsequent to year end were the following: Staff reduction plan On 12 January 2011, the Board of Directors of Meridiana fly, upon recommendation of the Chief Executive Officer, decided to implement a series of actions in FY2011 aimed at strengthening the Company's competitive position by focusing on the areas of greatest strategic interest to Meridiana fly. These actions represent a major strategic factor in the New Business Plan with reference to the year 2011These actions are intended, inter alia, to improve the cost structure, strengthen market positioning, including through a more focused definition of the network scope, and will result in a reduction in the number of MD80 aircraft included in the Company's fleet (it was originally planned to transfer them to the subsidiary Meridiana Express), a streamlining of staff and the outsourcing of non-core activities. As no different viable alternative was deemed available, on 9 February 2011 the Company formally announced the opening of the subsidised redundancy procedure pursuant to Law 223/1991 for 910 employees (FTE); this measure was due to the structural oversupply resulting from the business combination, the negative performance exacerbated by the highly detrimental external scenario, the reinstatement of a considerable number of employees with fixed-term contracts, as a result of the employment-law litigation in which the fixed term clause was declared null (see Section 2.17 Significant Litigation) as well as the outsourcing projects concerning some activities considered as non-core for the industry. In fact, this critical situation requires an immediate capacity reduction on the main routes in order to focus activities on core markets, where market share and growth prospects in the medium and long term may lead to improved performance and a return to profitability; this implies a consequent abandonment of structurally loss-making routes. Given the downsizing of activities and the necessary reduction in costs, the structural overstaffing involves the crew, the ground operating personnel as well as personnel in the headquarters; the plan also involves the full revision of the Company's organizational structure in order to recover and increase labour productivity as well as a review of the company's overall cost structure in line with industry benchmarks. In particular, the staff surplus totalling 910 employees, is broken down as follows (FTE): - 84 employees in the Technical Flight Crew category, including 40 pilots and 44 Captains employees in the cabin crew category (flight attendants) employees in the ground personnel category (bases and offices) Since the commencing of the redundancy procedures, there have been various negotiating tables with trade unions, but no agreement was reached so far to manage the redundancy issue, possibly avoiding harsh conflicts. On 25 March 2011 the first phase of negotiations shall end; they were initiated pursuant to the legislation, which envisages a second round of negotiations after a period of 30 days to be held at the ministry offices.

50 Operational problems for the tensions in Egypt At the end of January 2011, Egypt was affected by significant protests from citizens, that led first to the resignation of the government and finally to the resignation of President Mubarak in the month of February. The riots, which mainly involved the city of Cairo, had an impact on traffic from Italy to the tourist areas of the Red Sea reflecting the negative recommendation issued by the Italian Foreign Ministry. The activity of Meridiana fly, which is one of the major Italian carriers operating the routes between Italy and Egypt, with particular reference to tourist destinations for holidays, was significantly affected by the events occurred; just in the month of February 2011, Meridiana fly had to cancel 94% of planned flights (both scheduled and charter) with a direct loss of revenue of 5.5 million and of EBIT of 1.1 million in the said month New Business Plan As already partly mentioned in section staff reduction plan - given the results achieved and those expected in the very short-term, Meridiana fly has important and critical issues to face, including of a structural nature, which need to be solved in the coming years in order to bring the Company to appropriate levels of profitability in line with the industry benchmarks. The Board of Directors of Meridiana fly, noting the difficult state of the sector, the macroeconomic framework of reference, the current competitive positioning of the Company and the Group, as well as their specific situation, examined and approved in its meeting of 18 March 2011 a new Plan proposed by the CEO and developed with the support of strategic consultants. In particular, the New Business Plan , in order to implement the necessary turnaround with a view to achieving longterm profitability, envisages the implementation of the following actions. a) streamlining of the network, with a revision of rotations and routes and the closing of structurally loss-making activities; b) focusing of activities on strategic and more profitable routes (e.g. scheduled flights to Sardinia and on some national and international routes, charter flights to the Indian Ocean and to destinations in the Mediterranean / North Africa), consequently also opening up new routes and new operational solutions; c) reducing the number of MD80 type aircraft in the fleet and focus on the Airbus family, maximizing the opportunities and operational synergies (e.g. optimize the use of flight crew) arising from the standardization of aircraft; the gradual introduction of aircraft with reduced capacity in order to maximize the load factor; d) increasing the flexibility and productivity of crews, including through the revision of the agreed employment conditions; e) strengthening and developing partnerships with other carriers in the various contract types (e.g. code-sharing, block space or other); f) focusing on core clients, improving customer pre and post-flight service as well as the service in the various airports stops and in the cabin as well as promoting more advanced customer loyalty programs; g) reviewing pricing policy and promotion in order to increase market penetration in the various customer segments; h) rationalising "ancillary" revenue in order to capture and develop business opportunities with other business entities; i) as more fully described above, significantly reducing personnel: (a) staff, including through streamlining the organizational structure of headquarters and operational processes, reducing where possible middle managers and closing down some nonessential offices and functions, (b) flight crew, due to the concentration of operations and the resulting streamlining of the network and bases; l) Implementing the outsourcing of non-core activities such as the departments of Information Technology, Revenue Accounting, Control of Suppliers' Invoices, Personnel Administration (payroll) and the Call Center, assigning these specialized services to other companies, at a lower final cost; m) rationalising the information systems in order to improve the business structure performance by optimising operating processes, as well as to significantly reduce their operating costs; Meridiana fly - Annual Financial Report at 31 December

51 n) renegotiating contracts in the operational field (such as handling, maintenance and catering etc...), in the commercial field (e.g. agencies network and reservation systems, sales through various payment systems, advertising and promotion, etc...) as well as concerning the structure ( e.g. consulting, insurance, overhead, and so on). From a review of prospective data contained in the New Business Plan described above, the complete erosion of the net assets of the Company and the Group as well as a temporary cash imbalance - emerged to a larger extent than originally estimated in the Forecast updated at 30 June for an amount of approximately 69.5 million; this is due to significant negative cash flow expected mainly in 2011 reflecting the implementation of the restructuring described above as well as adverse events and trends factored in the scenario variables. Following this cash imbalance, on 22 March 2011 Meridiana provided an advance payment for future capital increases of 15 million, while the additional requirements of 54.5 million was also guaranteed by Meridiana through an irrevocable letter of commitment dated 23 March, the content of which is described more in detail in section Capitalisation of the Company and commitments of the Major Shareholder. As a result of these additional irrevocable commitments, the Plan envisages a financial and equity balance, with specific reference to a short-term horizon (12 months) which was taken as a reference for the verification of the going concern basis, despite an expected loss for the year 2011 comparable to that of 2010, as indicated in section Business Outlook Capitalisation of the Company and commitments of the Major Shareholder. As stated above, during 2010 and up to date, the parent Meridiana S.p.A. with the support of the Aga Khan Fund for Economic Development (AKFED) has made advance payments for future capital increase, fulfilling the commitments made on 26 August 2010 described in section , for an overall amount of 18.9 million and carried out on 22 March 2011 an additional payment of 15 million, again as an advance payment for future capital increase. These payments are part of the capitalisation strategy of Meridiana fly S.P.A. by the parent company, supported in this effort by the Major Shareholder; the parent formally notified the Company on 23 March 2011 of a further commitment to provide financial resources up to a maximum of 47 million, to ensure that Meridiana fly may continue to operate as a going concern for a period of at least 12 months; these resources shall be provided in the following manner: subscription and payment of new shares to be issued as part of a capital increase not yet approved by Meridiana fly S.p.A.; advance payment on future capital increase, or a combination of the two previous methods. Moreover, in order to provide the financial resources needed to ensure the going concern basis, Meridiana S.p.A. has also formally committed to providing additional resources to Meridiana fly in the form of payments for future capital increase up to a maximum of additional 7.5 million (thereby reaching a total amount of financial requirements of 54.5 million) if and insofar as Meridiana fly does not reach an agreement for new bank loans up to the amount stated above. The transactions described above: are transactions with related parties in accordance with the regulation on related-party transactions approved by Consob Resolution No of 12 March 2010, as amended by Consob Resolution No of 23 June (the "Regulation"), as Meridiana is the majority shareholder, holding the legal control of Meridiana fly, pursuant to art. 2359, paragraph 1, No. 1 and 93 of Legislative Decree no.58 of 24 February 1998, and AKFED is related with the majority shareholder of Meridiana S.p.A.; exceed the threshold set out in Article. 4, paragraph 1, letter a) of that Regulation; have been approved in accordance with the procedure relating to transactions with related parties adopted by Meridiana fly S.p.A. on 26 November 2010; Meridiana fly - Annual Financial Report at 31 December

52 will be exhaustively described in the prospectus that will be made available to the public in the manner and terms provided by art. 5, paragraph 3 of the said Regulation Other information Pursuant to Consob communication no. DEM/ of 28 July 2006 it is hereby stated that in the year 2010 no atypical and unusual transactions have been carried out as defined by the above Communication. No purchases or sales of own shares were made, directly or indirectly, during the financial year. At 31 December 2010 Meridiana fly does not hold own shares Business Outlook The general economic trend and market demand in Italy continued to remain low, in particular when compared with the economies of the Old Continent, largely affecting the spending power of families, especially for personal services and leisure. The demand for air travel is expected to increase slightly, mainly due to the contribution of the business and freight traffic components. The aviation business is still characterized by difficult market conditions and strong price competition between operators in the industry, both in the low-cost (LCC) and traditional sectors. Political tensions that have arisen in recent months in North Africa and the further increase in oil prices, permanently settling above 100 dollars a barrel, are external factors that may significantly affect the final results of the current year; as a result travel demand from tourists lowered and operational costs increased, with no possibility to achieve a proportional reduction in the impact of costs on revenues. In addition the year 2011 is for Meridiana fly an important year of major restructuring after the completion of the business combination with the Aviation Branch and the launch of the New Business Plan The plan aims at an improvement in earnings and in financial performance, by achieving over the next few years significant savings, synergies and optimizations made possible also by the business combination with Meridiana, which will in any case lead to a reduction in expected losses. In particular, with reference to the latter issue, it should be noted that as a result of significant planned restructuring, whose benefits will not be immediate, and given the current internal and market environment, the expected results included in the New Business Plan for FY year 2011 are still expected to record a significant net loss comparable to that of Based on the New Business Plan approved on 18 March 2011 and with reference to a 12 months time horizon from the date of approval of these financial statements, to be considered in assessing the going concern assumption- the Board of Directors, taking into account the commitments made by Meridiana and the major Shareholder, confirms that it has a reasonable expectation that the Company and the Group will continue to operate for the foreseeable future and has therefore prepared the separate and consolidated financial statements on a going concern basis. In this regard, given the extent of the commitment made by the major Shareholder, through the parent Meridiana S.p.A. - as described in section Capitalisation of the Company and commitments of the major Shareholder - the Directors assessed as limited the risk of a financial and equity imbalance that may result from the final results of 2011 and first quarter of 2012, given the that losses are expected to reach a level comparable to that of It should be emphasized, however, that the forecasts contained in the New Business Plan and, consequently, the financial and capital balance are significantly dependent on (i) the performance of uncontrollable external factors (e.g. political events and operational disruption, the volatility of fuel costs, exchange rates and interest rates, the level of average unit revenue - yield - as well as the load factor of the aircraft ) whose evolution, by itself hard to estimate, is made even more uncertain amid the political and economic turmoil brought about by recent international events - (ii) and / or the actual achievement of the expected reduction in staff and costs envisaged in the Plan for FY2011 (iii) and / or the adverse outcome of litigation, the worsening in the Meridiana fly - Annual Financial Report at 31 December

53 creditworthiness of counterparties, or in credit and supply conditions as well as in the management of overdue payables to suppliers. These uncertain and uncontrollable variables may result in significant deviations between forecasts and actual values. Failure to achieve the objectives set in the New Business Plan , the expected synergies and/or the estimated results could impact negatively on the financial and equity position of Meridiana fly and its business, with possible repercussions on the ability of the company to operate as a going concern as well as entailing the risk of impairment of some specific assets of the Company and the Group. Despite the uncertain conditions described above, due to the possible significant deviations from the expected losses over the next 12 months, reflecting unforeseen circumstances that may affect both external factors and / or the implementation of the restructuring plan, the Directors - based on the best estimates currently available of the trend in non-controllable variables and of the probability that planned strategic actions for the execution of the restructuring plan will be implemented, also taking into account the new commitments made today by Meridiana and the major Shareholder, (possibly reformulated, as shown by past experience, should the need for additional financial support arise ) believe that the Company will continue to operate and will be able to meet its obligations in the foreseeable future. Consequently the Directors consider it appropriate to prepare the financial statements at 31 December 2010 on the going concern basis.

54 Proposals by the Board of Directors to the Shareholders' meeting Dear Shareholders, The financial statements of Meridiana fly S.p.A. for the year 2010 closed with an overall loss of 51,861,451 and equity of 10,109,414, less than the share capital for more than 1 / 3 and as a result the Company falls within the case provided for by Art of the Italian Civil Code; therefore the extraordinary Shareholders meeting was convened for appropriate action on 28 April 2011 on first call and on 29 April 2011 on second call. The Board of Directors proposes to: - Approve the financial statements for the year ended 31 December 2010 which reports an overall loss of 51,861,451; - carry forward the loss for the year amounting to 51,861,451.

Meridiana fly - Annual Financial Report at 31 December

59 4. NOTES TO THE CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS 4.1. Accounting standards and measurement criteria General Considerations These consolidated financial statements at 31 December 2010 have been prepared in accordance with existing regulation on listed companies and are drawn up in Euro as this is the currency in which the Group operates. They are prepared in accordance with IAS / IFRS international accounting standards as adopted by the European Union. The financial statements and the amounts reported in the Notes are presented in thousand of euros, taking into account the rounding of individual items. Following the execution of the contribution of the Aviation Branch with effect on 28 February 2010, Meridiana fly S.p.A. (The "Company" or the "Parent Company") owns 100% controlling interest in Sameitaly and Wokita, previously 50% owned and controlled by Meridiana S.p.A. Therefore, at 31 December 2010, pursuant to Article 93 of the Consolidated Finance Act, the Company prepares for the first time the consolidated financial statements for the year ended 31 December 2010 reflecting the consolidation as from 1 March 2010 that is the effective date of the contribution of the investments. With regard to the consolidated financial statements, the Group presents the consolidated statement of financial position with the distinction of assets and liabilities between current and non-current, while the Consolidated Statement of Comprehensive Income provides for the classification of revenues and expenses by nature, which is considered as a more representative form than the socalled classification by function. The statement of changes in consolidated equity includes all recorded changes in equity. With regard to the circumstances described above, namely that the financial statements at 31 December 2010 are prepared for the first time on a consolidated basis in 2010, the statement of changes in equity is drawn up on the basis of balances at 31 December 2009 presented separately. Similarly, the consolidated statement of cash flows is drawn up presenting as "Cash and cash equivalents at the beginning of the period", the amounts resulting from the separate financial statements of Meridiana fly S.p.A. at 31 December 2009; the statement of cash flows is drawn up by using the "indirect" method. An asset/liability is classified as current when it satisfies one of the following criteria: - it is expected to be recovered/settled or it is expected to be sold or used in the normal operating cycle of the Group or - it is held primarily for trading or - it is expected to be realised/discharged within 12 months from the date of the financial statements. In the absence of all three conditions, assets / liabilities are classified as non-current. With regard to Consob Resolution No of 27 July 2006, in the consolidated statement of comprehensive income those gains and losses arising from non-recurring transactions or events that occur infrequently in the ordinary management of the Group, due to their non-significance, were not reported separately. These items are however described in section 9.6. "Significant Non-recurring Events and Transactions." With reference to the identification in separate lines items of related party transactions, as required by Consob Resolution No of 27 July 2006, in the income statement of financial position and statement of cash flows there is no separate evidence of transactions with related parties, as these were deemed insignificant. It should also be noted, with regard to the financial statements, that the summary of financial transactions with related parties for the year 2010 is provided in Section Related Party Transactions, with evidence of the impact of these transactions on the total amount reported in the corresponding line item. The consolidated financial statements are audited by Deloitte & Touche S.p.A. Meridiana fly - Annual Financial Report at 31 December

60 Accounting standards, measurement criteria and use of estimates in preparing the consolidated financial statements These consolidated financial statements as at 31 December 2010 has been prepared in accordance with International Accounting Standards IAS / IFRS issued by the International Accounting Standards Board (IASB) and endorsed by the European Union as well as the measures implementing art. 9, of Legislative Decree No. 38/2005. "IFRS" also includes International Accounting Standards (IAS) still in force, and all interpretations issued by the International Financial Reporting Interpretations Committee (IFRIC), previously known as the Standing Interpretations Committee (SIC). The accounting standards, measurement criteria and the use of estimates used by the Company for the purpose of preparing the consolidated financial statements at 31 December 2010 are described below. The financial statements are prepared based on the historical cost, adjusted as required for the measurement of certain financial instruments, and on the going concern basis, which was confirmed by the Directors in accordance with paragraphs 25 and 26 of IAS 1 on the basis of the considerations in section Business Outlook. The most important accounting policies adopted are as follows: Principles of consolidation Subsidiaries These are companies on which the Group exercises control as defined in IAS 27 - Consolidated and separate financial statements. Control exists when the Group has the power, directly or indirectly, to govern the financial and operating policies of an enterprise so as to obtain benefits from its activities. In the evaluation of control, we also consider the potential voting rights currently exercisable or convertible, as well as the positions of "actual control" on the basis of the voting power, and not only, exercisable at the shareholders' meeting. The financial statements of subsidiaries are included in the consolidated financial statements from the date on which control commences until the moment when that control ceases. The data used for the consolidation are those prepared by the directors of each company, which may have already been approved by the respective Shareholders' Meetings, appropriately reclassified and adjusted in order to comply with the accounting principles and measurement criteria of the Group Meridiana fly. The share capital and reserves attributable to non-controlling interests in subsidiaries and the share of non-controlling interests of profit or loss of consolidated subsidiaries are identified separately in the consolidated statement of financial position and in the consolidated income statement. Losses attributable to non-controlling interests in excess of the interest held in a subsidiary are allocated to equity attributable to non-controlling interests. Changes in ownership interest in a subsidiary that do not result in an acquisition/loss of control are accounted for as equity transactions. Subsidiaries that are inactive or that generate a not significant annual turnover are not included in the consolidated financial statements. Their influence over total assets, liabilities, financial position and profit / (loss) attributable to owners of the parent is not relevant. Transactions eliminated on consolidation The consolidation is done using the line-by-line consolidation method. The criteria for the application of this method include, among other things: eliminating the carrying value of investments in consolidated companies against the related equity and concurrently recording all their assets and liabilities; the elimination of intragroup balances and significant transactions, as well as unrealized gains and losses on intragroup Meridiana fly - Annual Financial Report at 31 December

61 transactions. Unrealised gains on transactions with associates and jointly controlled entities are eliminated in proportion to the Group's interest in those entities. Unrealised losses are eliminated except where they cannot later be recovered. Business Combinations Business combinations are recognized using the acquisition method. According to this method, the amount transferred in a business combination is measured at fair value, calculated as the sum of the fair value of the assets transferred and liabilities assumed by the Group at the date of acquisition and equity instruments issued in exchange for control of the acquiree. The additional charges associated with the transaction are generally recognized in the income statement when incurred. At the date of acquisition, the identifiable assets acquired and liabilities assumed are recorded at fair value at the acquisition date; the following items are exceptions and are measured according to their reference principle: Deferred tax assets and liabilities; Assets and liabilities for employee benefits; Liabilities or equity instruments related to share-based payments transactions of the acquiree or shared-based payments transactions of the Group issued in replacement of the acquiree's contracts; Assets held for sale and discontinued operations. Goodwill is determined as the difference between the aggregate of consideration transferred in the business combination, the amount of any non-controlling interest in the acquiree and the fair value of the acquirer s previously held equity interest in the acquiree over the fair value of net assets acquired and liabilities assumed at the date of acquisition. If the value of net assets acquired and liabilities assumed at the date of acquisition exceeds the sum of the consideration transferred, the amount of any non-controlling interest in the acquiree and the fair value of the acquirer s previously held equity interest in the acquiree, the resulting gain is immediately recognised in profit or loss as gain from the business combination. The share of non-controlling interest in the acquiree's net assets, at the acquisition date, can be measured at fair value or the pro rata share in the recognised amounts of the acquiree s identifiable net assets. The choice of the measurement method is made transaction by transaction. Any contingent consideration provided in the business combination agreement is measured at the acquisition date fair value and included in the amount of the consideration transferred in the business combination for the purposes of determining goodwill. Any changes in fair value of contingent consideration, which are classified as measurement period adjustments, are retrospectively included in goodwill. Changes in fair value classified as measurement period adjustments are those that result from new information about facts and circumstances that existed as of the acquisition date, obtained during the measurement period (which shall not exceed a period of one year from the business combination). In the case of business combinations that occurred in stages, the Group's previously held equity interest in the acquiree is remeasured at fair value at the date of acquisition of control and any resulting gain or loss is recognised in the income statement. Any amount resulting from previously held equity interest recognised in other comprehensive income is reclassified in the income statement as if the equity interest had been disposed of. As of 31 December 2010 all the subsidiaries that are consolidated using the line-by-line method are wholly-owned subsidiaries; therefore there are no net assets attributable to non-controlling interests to be included as a separate component of equity, nor is there a share of profit or loss attributable to non-controlling interests to be highlighted separately in the consolidated income statement. If the initial accounting for a business combination is incomplete at the end of the reporting period in which the business combination occurs, the Group reports in its consolidated financial statements the provisional amounts of items for which the measurement cannot be completed. These provisional amounts are adjusted during the measurement period to reflect new information obtained about facts and circumstances existing at the acquisition date that, if known, would have affected the amount of assets and liabilities recognised as of that date. Please refer to the next section 4.6 -Method of recognition of the aviation business contribution operation- for a discussion in relation to the business combinations carried out during the year The reader should also refer to section Analysis of changes in equity - for a detailed analysis of the consolidation of the 50% Meridiana fly - Annual Financial Report at 31 December

62 share in Wokita and Sameitaly obtained from the contribution of the Aviation branch, for which both the IFRS 3 and OPI 4 have been applied. Recognition of costs and revenues Sales and purchases of goods are recognised when goods are respectively delivered to the customer or to the Company, with transfer of the significant risks and rewards associated with ownership of the goods. Sales and purchase of services are recognised to the extent of their execution and completion on each reporting date, taking into account, in particular, the flight date for passenger transport services, calculated according to the total value of the service rendered or received. With reference to tickets for scheduled passenger transport, which, as at the financial statements date, are issued but not yet used or refund thereof has not been requested, are reported as income under item "Other Revenue" (the so-called "Proceeds from prepaid items") estimated on the basis of the historically observed percentage of passengers not using or not requesting refund of the tickets issued, in order to ensure full recognition of revenue in the financial statements in accordance with the accrual basis. Interest income and expense are recognized in accordance with the accrual principle. The costs for taking out loans are recognised in profit or loss when incurred. Ancillary costs for the issue of a financial instrument or for a capital increase are directly deducted from the proceeds of the loan or capital increase to which they refer. Commissions paid to agencies for the sale of air tickets are recognised in profit or loss when the related revenues are recognised. Charge-backs of costs incurred on behalf of third parties are recognised as a reduction of the cost to which they relate. Dividends are recognised when the shareholders right to collect them arises. This usually occurs in the financial year when the investee company s shareholder' meeting approving the distribution of earnings takes place. Non-current assets Intangible assets Goodwill arising from business combinations are initially recorded at cost at the acquisition date, as defined above in relation to "Business Combinations". Goodwill is not amortised but is tested for impairment annually or more frequently if events or changes in circumstances indicate that it may be impaired. After initial recognition, goodwill is measured at cost less any accumulated impairment losses. Upon disposal of part or whole of a company previously acquired and for which goodwill had been recognised upon acquisition, in the determination of the gain or loss on disposal, the corresponding residual value of goodwill is taken into account. Intangible assets include the costs, inclusive of ancillary costs, incurred to acquire resources lacking physical substance on condition that their amount can be reliably measured and the asset is clearly identifiable and controlled by the Company. These are stated at purchase or production cost including ancillary costs and are amortised according to their useful life. If there is indication that an asset may be impaired, the intangible asset is written down accordingly, following the criteria indicated in the subsequent policy Impairment of assets. The amortisation periods applied for the various categories of intangible assets are indicated below: development costs relating to initial training of pilots are amortised over a three-year period, while those relating to the launch of new products/services from which long-lasting future economic benefits are expected are amortised over five years; concessions, licenses, trademarks and similar rights are amortised over a five/ ten-year period; Costs relating to preparation of the website are amortised over five years. The useful life and the amortisation criterion are reviewed regularly. If significant changes are found compared with previously made assumptions, the amortisation rate is corrected using the prospective method. Tangible assets Tangible assets are recorded as "Fleet", for which it was considered appropriate to provide separate exposure due to the significance of this item following the business combination with the Aviation Branch of Meridiana, and as "Other Property, Plant and Equipment", which includes all other tangible assets. Tangible assets are recognised on condition that their cost can be reliably measured and that the Group will be able to enjoy their future economic benefits. Meridiana fly - Annual Financial Report at 31 December

63 They are recorded at purchase or production cost, inclusive of ancillary costs and of the portion of direct and indirect costs that can reasonably be attributed to the asset. Investment grants obtained are recognised in the income statement over the period necessary to match them with related costs and are directly deducted from such costs. If there is indication that an asset may be impaired, the tangible asset is written down accordingly, following the criteria indicated in the subsequent policy Impairment of assets. Property, plant and equipment are systematically depreciated on a straight-line basis according to economic/technical rates established in relation to the assets residual useful life. Assets consisting of components with different useful lives are considered separately when calculating depreciation. The useful life and the amortisation criterion are reviewed regularly. If significant changes are found compared with previously made assumptions, the amortisation rate is corrected using the prospective method. Generally speaking, the asset s useful life is subject to annual verification. It is changed if, during the period, enhancement maintenance is performed or replacements are made that modify the useful life of the asset to which they refer. Enhancement and maintenance expenses that significantly increase the production capacity or safety of tangible assets, or that lengthen the useful life of such assets, are capitalised and recorded as an increase in the amount of the tangible asset to which they refer. Routine maintenance costs are directly recognized in the income statement. The applied depreciation rates are reduced, with reference to the increases in tangible assets of the period, according to the effective commissioning of the assets. Depreciation starts when the assets are ready for use. Specifically, the annual depreciation rates applied are as follows: - land not amortised - buildings, 50 years 2% - light constructions, 10 years 10% - plant, 10 years 10% - equipment, 7 years 14% - rolling components, 12 years 8.33% - data processing machines, 5 years 20% - office machinery and furniture, 8.3 years 12% - internal means of transport, 5 years 20% - vehicles, 4 years 25% - systems of communication, 5 years 20% - Modifications and standardisations performed on fleet aircraft are depreciated based on the duration of operating lease contracts. Leasehold improvements are classified as tangible assets, according to the nature of the cost. The amortisation period is the lesser of the remaining useful life of the tangible asset and the residual term of the contract. Costs incurred for regular reconditioning of company-owned engines and cells are recognized as an increase in the book value of the asset to which they refer, separately from the physical parts. Any book value net of the cost of the previous reconditioning is derecognized, irrespective of whether the cost of the previous reconditioning was explicitly mentioned in the transaction in which the element was purchased or constructed. In this case, the estimated cost of similar future reconditioning is used as an indication of what the cost of the reconditioning of the existing component was when the element was purchased or constructed. In particular, the useful life of the fleet (aircraft and their components) is estimated in relation to the date of presumed decommissioning, which according to current forecasts, is set at the end of The estimated useful lives of the fleet are as follows: - Engine maintenance 10 years - Cell maintenance 20 years The depreciation of the aircraft is determined on the basis of the components. Meridiana fly - Annual Financial Report at 31 December

64 Leases are classified as finance leases whenever the terms of the contract are such as to substantially transfer all the risks and rewards of ownership to the lessee. All other leases are considered as operating leases. Assets held under finance leases are recorded as assets of the Group at their fair value as at the contract date, adjusted for ancillary costs incurred for the stipulation of the contract and any costs incurred to take over the lease or, if lower, at the present value of minimum lease payments due for the lease. The corresponding liability vis à vis the lessor is recognized in the statement of financial position as a financial liability. Payments for rentals are apportioned between principal and interest in order to achieve a constant interest rate on the residual liability. Financial expense is charged directly to the income statement for the period. Rental costs relating to operating leases are recognised on a straight-line basis over the term of the contract. The benefits received or to be received or paid or payable as an incentive to enter into operating leases are also recorded on a straight-line basis over the term of the contract. Periodic maintenance and end-of-contract reconditioning costs are capitalised as an increase in the tangible asset to which they refer and depreciated respectively for the period of validity of periodic maintenance or over the term of the aircraft s operating lease. Impairment of tangible and intangible assets At each reporting date, the Group reviews the carrying amounts of its tangible and intangible assets to determine whether there is any indication that those assets are impaired. If such an indication exists, the recoverable amount of these assets is measured in order to determine the extent of the impairment. If it is not possible to measure the recoverable amount of an asset separately identified, the Group measures the recoverable amount of the cash-generating unit to which the asset belongs. In particular, the smallest group of assets is represented by the cash-generating unit; for the identification of a cash generating unit for the purposes of preparing the consolidated financial statements the reader should refer to section 4.7 Ref 1 Intangible Assets. The recoverable amount is the higher of fair value less costs to sell and value in use. The fair value is the market price (net of costs of disposal), provided that the asset is traded in an active market. A market can reasonably be considered active based on transactions frequency and volumes. In assessing value in use, future cash flows, related to a time period not exceeding five years are estimated on the basis of conservative assumptions based on historical data and making prudential forecast about the future performance of the reference sector; the cash flows are discounted to their present value using a pre-tax rate that reflects current market assessments of the time value of money and the risks specific to the asset, the terminal value is determined on the basis of a perpetuity. If the recoverable amount of an asset (or cash-generating unit) is estimated to be less than its carrying amount, the carrying amount is reduced to its recoverable amount. An impairment loss is recognised immediately in profit or loss. Where an impairment loss no longer exists, the carrying amount of the asset (or cash-generating unit), except for goodwill (which for investments corresponds to the positive difference emerged as of the acquisition date, between the acquisition cost and the fair value of the share of the investee's net assets attributable to the Group), is increased to the new value resulting from the measurement of its recoverable amount, but not exceeding the carrying amount that would have been determined had no impairment loss been recognised. A reversal of impairment loss is recognised immediately in profit or loss. Investments in associates Investments in associates are carried at cost (in the absence of a fair value that can be reasonably determined), adjusted for impairment losses. Any positive difference, emerging at the acquisition date, between the cost of acquisition and the fair value of the share of the investee's net assets attributable to the Group, is therefore included in the carrying amount of the investment. Any write-down of this positive difference (which represents the goodwill recognized to the investee's business at the time of acquisition) is not reversed in subsequent years even if the conditions that led to the write-down no longer exist. If the Group s proportional share of any losses made by the associate exceeds the investment s carrying value, the investment s value is written off and the portion of any further losses is recognised as a provision in liabilities if the Company is under the obligation to cover such losses. Dividends received are recognized in the income statement, when the right to receive payment is established, only if resulting from a distribution of earnings subsequent to the acquisition of the investee. If, instead, they result from the distribution of the investee's reserves prior to acquisition, the dividends are recorded as a reduction in the cost of the investment.

65 Other non-current assets Other non-current assets and other non-current receivables are stated at their nominal value, which coincides with the estimated realisable value. Non-current assets and liabilities held for sale Non-current assets (or groups of assets held for sale) classified as "held for sale" are measured at the lower of their previous carrying value and market value less costs to sell. Non-current assets (or groups of assets held for sale) are classified as "held for sale" when it is expected that their carrying amount will be recovered through a disposal rather than through their use in the company's operations. This condition is met only when at the reporting date the sale is highly probable, the asset (or group of assets) is available for immediate sale in its present condition and management has made a commitment to the sale, which is set to take place within twelve months from the date of classification under this item. The profit or loss generated by the operation of the assets and liabilities held for sale for the months between the last approved financial statements and the date of disposal - in accordance with IFRS 5 - is classified as "Results of discontinued operations " together with the economic effects of the operations, net of ancillary costs to sell. Current assets and liabilities Inventories Inventories, consisting of stocks of technical materials, catering materials and scheduled air tickets, are recorded at their specific purchase cost or, if lower, at their realisable value based on market trends. This lower value is not maintained in subsequent years if the reasons for it no long exist and value is reinstated, if the conditions exist to do so, within the limits of the original purchase cost. Financial Instruments Financial assets and liabilities are recognised at the time when the Group becomes a party to the instruments contractual clauses. - Trade receivables Trade receivables are stated at their nominal value less an appropriate write-down to reflect estimated losses on receivables. - Financial assets Financial receivables relating to capital redemption contracts are measured at cost, i.e. nominal value, plus interest accrued. This value is not lower than the value of initial insured capital plus guaranteed minimum return. Financial receivables relating to performance deposits are posted at nominal value, which coincides with estimated realisable value. Receivables for security deposits for utilities are measured at nominal value, which coincides with estimated realisable value. Receivables for deposits against contractual commitments with third parties are posted at nominal value and adjusted, if necessary, to align the amount paid with presumed recovery value. On subsequent reporting dates, financial assets that the Group intends and is able to hold to maturity are recognised at amortised cost net of any impairment write-downs. Financial assets other than those held to maturity are classified as held for trading or available for sale and are measured at fair value at the end of each period. When financial assets are held for trading, gains and losses arising from changes in fair value are recognized in the income statement for the period. Conversely, in the case of financial assets available for sale, gains and losses arising from changes in fair value are recognized directly in equity until they are sold or have been impaired; in such cases, the overall gains or losses previously recognized in equity are recognized in the income statement for the period. - Cash and cash equivalents The item relating to cash and cash equivalents includes cash and current bank accounts, demand deposits, and other short-term, highly liquid financial investments that can be readily monetised and are subject to insignificant risk of changes in value. - Bank and other loans and bank overdrafts Loans and interest-bearing bank loans and bank overdrafts are recorded based on the amounts received, net of transaction costs and subsequently measured at amortized cost using the effective interest rate method. - Trade payables Meridiana fly - Annual Financial Report at 31 December

66 Trade payables are stated at their nominal value. Derivative financial Instruments In carrying out its business the Company is exposed to the risks of changes in exchange rates (mainly Euro/USD) and in fuel prices. To minimize these risks, derivatives contracts are entered into hedging both specific transactions and total exposures, making use of the instruments offered by the market. Derivative hedging instruments, in keeping with the provisions of IAS 39, are accounted for in accordance with the methods laid down for hedge accounting only when: at the start of the hedge there is formal designation and documentation of the hedging relationship; the hedge is highly effective; the effectiveness can be reliably demonstrated. When a financial instrument is designated as a hedge of exposure to the variability of cash flows of the hedged transactions (cash flow hedge; e.g. hedging the variability of cash flows of expected future transactions against the effect of fluctuations in exchange rates), the gains and losses deriving from the fair value changes of the hedging instrument are accounted for directly in shareholders equity for the effective part (any ineffective part is instead accounted for immediately in the income statement under the item gains/(losses) on foreign exchange). The amounts recognized in equity are subsequently reflected in the income statement for the period in which the contracts and expected transactions are manifested in the income statement. If an instrument is designated as a hedge of exposure to changes in the fair value of hedged instruments (e.g. hedging of the variability of the fair value of receivables and payables in foreign currencies), it is recognized at fair value with the effects booked to the income statement; accordingly, the hedged instruments are adjusted to reflect the fair value changes associated with the hedged risk. Changes in the fair value of derivatives that do not meet the conditions to qualify as hedges are recognized in profit or loss. In the presence of alternative treatments permitted by IAS 39 for the classification of such transactions, the Group has decided that the change in fair value of contracts on commodities is to be classified in the income statement as an adjustment to the operating costs. Financial and non-financial contracts are analysed to identify the existence of embedded derivatives to be unbundled and measured at fair value. Gains and losses resulting from subsequent changes in fair value are recognized in profit or loss. Employee Post-employment benefits Payments for defined contribution plans are charged to the income statement in the period in which they are due. Post-employment benefit provision [formerly known as employee severance indemnity provision ] expresses the liability towards employees for the benefits accrued as up to reporting date in compliance with current laws and contractual agreements. This liability is considered similar to a defined-benefit plan, the cost of which is calculated using the actuarial Projected Unit Credit method; actuarial valuations are performed at the end of each financial year. Gains and losses are recognized in the statement of comprehensive income and included in income components such as income and expenses defined as "changes resulting from transactions with non-shareholders". The cost related to employees' past service is recognized immediately the extent that the benefits have already accrued or otherwise is amortised on a straight-line basis over the average period in which benefits are expected to accrue. Until 31 December 2006 the post-employment benefit provision (TFR) was considered a defined benefit plan. The rules for such provision were changed by Italian Law no. 296 of 27 December 2006 (the 2007 National Budget Law) and by subsequent decrees and regulations enacted in the early months of 2007.They now envisage payment of post-employment benefits as they accrue to a separate entity (pension fund or central treasury fund of the INPS (state pension & welfare agency). In light of these changes, and in particular as regards companies with at least 50 employees, under IAS 19 the post-employment benefit provision should be Meridiana fly - Annual Financial Report at 31 December

67 considered as a defined-benefit plan solely for benefits accrued before 1 January 2007 (and not yet paid out as at the reporting date), whereas after this date it should be considered as a defined contribution plan. The right granted to employees and former employees to buy an air ticket at a discount compared to its price list is a long-term benefit, and the corresponding liability is recorded in the financial statements according to the actuarial valuation methodology provided for under IAS 19. The provision specifically established (the "provision for subsidised tickets") is released periodically and recorded as an increase in the amount of revenue from the sale of tickets. Income taxes Income taxes for the period are the sum of current and deferred taxes. Current taxes are based on the period's taxable profit. Taxable profit differs from profit as reported in the income statement because it excludes items of income and expense that are taxable or deductible in other years (temporary tax differences) and it further excludes items that are never taxable or deductible (tax permanent differences). Current tax liability is calculated using current tax rates or the rates substantially in force at the end of the reporting period. Deferred taxes are taxes that the Group expects to be payable or recoverable on the temporary differences between the book value of assets and liabilities and the corresponding tax bases used in computation of taxable profit. Deferred tax liabilities are generally recognized for all taxable temporary differences while deferred tax assets are recognized to the extent that it is probable that there will be future taxable profits in the future based on business plans approved by the Group. In particular, the carrying value of deferred tax assets is reviewed at each reporting date and reduced to the extent that is no longer probable that sufficient taxable profits will be available to allow all or part of the assets to be recovered. Deferred taxes are calculated at the tax rates that the Group expects to be in force when the asset is recovered or the liability settled. Deferred taxes are directly booked to the statement of comprehensive income, except for those relating to transactions with shareholders' which are recognized directly in equity, in which case the corresponding deferred taxes are also recognized in equity. Deferred tax assets and liabilities are offset when there is a legal right to offset current tax assets and liabilities and when they relate to taxes due to the same tax authority and the Company intends to settle its current tax assets and liabilities on a net basis. Grants Grants are recognized at fair value when there is reasonable assurance that they will be received and that the conditions attaching to them will be met. Grants for operating expenses are recognized in full in the income statement at the moment in which the conditions for recognition are met. Capital grants are deducted directly from the purchase cost of the asset to which they refer. Provisions Provisions are made when the Group has a present obligation as a result of a past event and it is likely that it will be required to settle the obligation. Provisions are based on management's best estimate of the costs required to settle the obligation at the reporting date and are discounted to present value when the effect is material. Items in foreign currency or subject to "foreign exchange risk" Receivables and payables originally denominated in the foreign currency of countries outside the Eurozone are translated into Euro at the exchange rates in force at the date of the underlying transactions. Foreign exchange differences incurred on collection of receivables and settlement of payables in foreign currencies are recorded in the income statement. Non-current assets denominated in foreign currencies are recorded at the exchange rate in force at the time of purchase or at the lower exchange rate in force at the end of the period if the reduction is deemed as long-lasting. Assets and liabilities, originally denominated in foreign currency of countries outside the Eurozone, still outstanding at year end, including non-current assets of a monetary nature, are aligned at the spot exchange rate at the reporting date; the related exchange gains and losses are recorded in the income statement and any net profit is allocated to a special non-distributable reserve until realisation. Use of estimates The preparation of consolidated financial statements and related notes requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and the disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the reporting date. Meridiana fly - Annual Financial Report at 31 December

68 Estimates and assumptions are based on previous experience and other factors deemed relevant. Actual results may therefore differ from these estimates. Estimates and assumptions are reviewed periodically and the effects of any changes made to them are reflected in the income statement in the period in which the estimates are revised, if the revision affects only that period, or also in subsequent years if the revision affects both the current year and future years. Below we summarise the critical assessments and key assumptions used by management in applying accounting standards and policies with regard to the future, that may have material effects on reported amounts or for which there is a risk of adjustments to the carrying value of assets and liabilities in the financial year following the one to which these financial statements refer. Provision for doubtful receivables Provision for doubtful receivables reflects management s estimates about the losses on doubtful accounts concerning end customers. The estimate of this provision is based on the losses expected by the Company based on experience with similar receivables, current and historical past-due receivables, losses and collections, careful monitoring of credit quality, and on forecasts of economic and market conditions supported in this by the opinions of the legal advisors representing the Company in prelitigation and litigation phases. The reader should refer to section "Ref 9 - Trade and other receivables "of this explanatory notes for considerations on the main disputes underway concerning the recovery of receivables. Recoverable amount of non-current assets Non-current assets include goodwill, the fleet and property, plant and equipment and other assets, intangible assets as well as non-controlling equity investments. The Management periodically reviews the carrying value of non-current assets held and used in operations as well as assets held for sale, when facts and circumstances make such review necessary. This activity is performed using estimates of future cash flows and appropriate discount rates to calculate present value or to estimate fair value less costs to sell, based on assessments conducted with the support of third party experts' opinions. Therefore, this audit of the carrying value of non-current assets is based on a hypothetical set of assumptions regarding future events and actions of the administrative bodies that may not necessarily occur in the expected manner and timing. More specifically, in order to determine the recoverable amount of goodwill resulting from the consolidation of Sameitaly and Wokita (assessed separately from goodwill of the sole CGU Meridiana fly, due to a specific impairment test carried out to measure the recoverability of the carrying value of investments recorded in the separate financial statements, extended to the goodwill relating to those subsidiaries in the consolidated financial statements) estimates have been made about the subsidiaries' expected cash flows, which, being dependent on the operations of the Parent Company only with regard to the volume of business generated by the latter, as indicated in paragraph 2.28 "Business Outlook", are affected by external factors that the parent is unable to control; these factors include the trend of the Euro / Dollar exchange rate, interest rates, the cost of aviation fuel, the overall load factor, the average unit revenue per passenger and the income per hour of flight on charter flights, in addition to the success of strategic actions to reduce personnel and renegotiate contracts with suppliers. Failure to implement the New Business Plan by the parent company, may result in a failure to achieve the objectives of prospective profitability of the investee companies and consequently the goodwill associated with such activities could not achieve the amounts recorded in the consolidated financial statements at 31 December in order to determine the recoverable amount of the Cash Generating Unit Meridiana fly, inclusive of goodwill, we relied on a fair value estimate carried out by an independent expert on the basis of stock prices measured in accordance with the criteria described in more detail in the next section Ref "Intangible Assets". Development of these prices at significantly lower levels than those recorded in the period in question could result in the recognition of impairment losses for the CGU Meridiana fly (see Section 2.25 "Main risks and uncertainties for the current year Ref-2"). in order to determine the recoverable value of the real estate owned in via Bugatti in Milan we made use of the appraisal of an expert specifically appointed for this purpose; in fact, for the purposes of preparing the financial statements, a specific recoverability analysis has been made for this non-current asset that does not contribute to the profitability of the Group, as it is destined for rental to third parties after the transfer of the registered offices from Milan to Olbia. Changes in the scenario of the reference real estate market could lead to the recognition of further impairment losses in addition to the Meridiana fly - Annual Financial Report at 31 December

69 write-down of 855 thousand already recorded to reflect the results of the expert's assessment, net of estimated costs to sell. Deferred tax assets and liabilities The Group recognizes current and deferred taxes in accordance with applicable regulations. The recognition of taxes requires using estimates and assumptions concerning the interpretation of applicable regulations and their effect on the Company s taxation, with regard to the transactions completed during the financial year in question. In addition, recognition of deferred tax assets and liabilities requires use of estimates concerning prospective taxable income and its development, as well as applicable tax rates. These activities are performed through an analysis of completed transactions and their tax profile, also with the support, when necessary, of external advisors on the various aspects addressed. They also take the form of simulations and sensitivity analyses of prospective income. In particular, the recoverability of deferred tax assets as at 31 December 2010, partly associated with the use in future years of tax losses carried forward, depends on the achievement of the New Business Plan; this plan is subject to uncertainties given that future income is dependent on the performance of external non controllable factors. Failure to implement the New Business Plan would result in the inability of the Group to realise deferred tax assets at values corresponding to those recorded in the consolidated financial statements at 31 December Income from unused tickets (so-called "Proceeds from prepaid tickets") The estimate of income from unused issued tickets (the so-called "Proceeds from prepaid tickets") estimated on the basis of the historically observed percentage of passengers not using or not requesting refund of the tickets issued, in order to ensure full recognition of revenue in the financial statements in accordance with the accrual basis. Different trends from those historically experienced in the actual number of tickets unused by passengers or the real charges of unused tickets refund may result in revenues different from those measured at the reporting date based on estimates made by management. Defined benefit plans Post-employment benefit provision is classifiable as a defined-benefit plan for the portion accrued before 31 December Management uses various statistical assumptions and assessment factors with the aim of anticipating future events in order to calculate the costs, liabilities and assets relating to such plans. Assumptions relate to discount rate, the expected return on assets on which the plan is based, and the rates of future pay increases. In addition, the actuaries advising the Company also use subjective factors such as, for example, mortality and employees turnover rates. Contingent liabilities The Group is involved in lawsuits and tax disputes relating to complex and difficult problems and with a varying degree of uncertainty, including the facts and circumstances regarding each case, jurisdiction and the different applicable laws. Given the uncertainties inherent in these issues, it is difficult to predict the outlay that may arise from such disputes. Consequently, management after consultation with its legal advisors and legal and tax experts recognises a liability for such litigation when it considers that a cash outlay is likely to occur and the amount of the resulting losses can be reasonably estimated. If a cash outlay becomes possible but the amount cannot be determined, this fact is disclosed in the notes to the financial statements. New accounting standards and interpretations Accounting standards, amendments and interpretations applicable as from 1 January 2010 The new accounting standards, amendments and interpretations which, being applicable as from 1 January 2010, supplement as from that date the accounting policies used in preparing the consolidated financial statements. IAS 27 and revised IFRS 3 (business combinations) The revised IFRS 3 (2008) has introduced major changes, including, in particular the following aspects: Meridiana fly - Annual Financial Report at 31 December

70 - regulation of step acquisitions of subsidiaries; - option to measure a non-controlling interest acquired in a partial acquisition at fair value; - acquisition related costs charged to the income statement; Contingent consideration recognised at the acquisition date. Step acquisition of a subsidiary In the case of step acquisition of a subsidiary, IFRS 3 (2008) states that a business combination takes place only when control is acquired and that, at this time, all the identifiable net assets of the acquiree should be measured at fair value; non-controlling interests should be measured based on their fair value or based on the proportional share of the fair value of identifiable net assets of the acquiree. In an acquisition where the control of an investee is achieved in stages, the investment previously held, which until then was accounted for as set out in IAS 39 - Financial Instruments: Recognition and Measurement, or IAS 28 - Investments in Associates or IAS 31 - Investments in joint ventures, should be treated as if it had been sold, and purchased again at the date on which control is acquired. This equity interest should therefore be measured at its acquisition date fair value and the resulting gain or loss must be recognized in the income statement. In addition, any amount previously recognized in equity. as "Other comprehensive gains and losses" which should be recognised in the income statement following the sale of the asset to which it relates, shall be reclassified in the income statement. Goodwill or the proceeds from the acquisition of control of a subsidiary must be determined as the sum of the price paid for the acquisition of control, the value of non-controlling interests (as measured by one of the methods permitted by the standard), the fair value of the non-controlling interest previously held, net of the fair value of identifiable net assets acquired. According to the previous version of the standard, an acquisition of control achieved in stages was measured as if each transaction were part of a series of separate acquisitions that generated a total goodwill determined as the sum of the goodwill generated by each individual transaction. Acquisition-related costs IFRS 3 (2008) provides that acquisition-related costs be expensed in the period in which they are incurred. Previously these charges were recorded as part of the cost of acquisition of the acquiree's net assets. Contingent consideration recognition IFRS 3 (2008) provides that contingent consideration be considered part of the transfer price of net assets acquired and be measured at the acquisition date fair value. Similarly, if the business combination contract provides for the right to a refund of some components of the price upon certain conditions, this right is classified as an asset by the buyer. Any subsequent changes in fair value are recognised as an adjustment to the original accounting treatment only if they result from additional or better information about the fair value and if they occur within 12 months from the date of acquisition; all other changes must be recognised in profit or loss. The previous version of the standard provided that contingent consideration is recognised at the acquisition date only if its payment was considered probable and the amount could be determined reliably. Any subsequent change in the value of such consideration was also always recognized as an adjustment to goodwill. IAS 27 (2008) - Consolidated and separate financial statements The amendments to IAS 27 relate mainly to the accounting treatment of transactions or events that cause a change in the equity interest in subsidiaries and the allocation of the subsidiary's losses to non-controlling interests; these amendments shall be applied prospectively. IAS 27 (2008) provides that, once the parent company has acquired the control of a company, the transactions in which the parent company acquires or disposes of non-controlling interest without modifying the control exercised over the subsidiary, are transactions with shareholders and therefore should be recognised in equity. It follows that the carrying value of the controlling interest and of non-controlling interests should be adjusted to reflect the change in interest in the subsidiary and any difference Meridiana fly - Annual Financial Report at 31 December

71 between the amount of the adjustment made to non-controlling interests and the fair value of the price paid or received as a result of this transaction is recognized directly in equity and attributed to the owners of the parent. There will be no adjustment to goodwill nor gains or losses recognized in the income statement. The charges arising from these transactions must also be recognized in equity in accordance with the requirements of IAS 32 section 35. The following amendments, improvements and interpretations, effective from 1 January 2010, should also be mentioned: - IAS 32 - Classification of rights in a foreign currency as an equity instrument. - Amendment to IAS 39 - Financial Instruments: Recognition and Measurement - Eligible Hedged Items. - Amendment to IFRS 2 - Share-based payments: payments based on shares where the company receiving the service is different from the company having the obligation. - IFRIC 17 - Distribution of non-monetary assets to shareholders, using fair value to measure these activities. - IFRIC 18 - Transfer of tangible assets from customers for regular supply of goods and services. - IFRIC 19 - Extinguishing Financial Liabilities with Equity Instruments. In FY2010 the above-mentioned changes in accounting standards and interpretations had no material management or accounting impact on the Group. Accounting standards, amendments and interpretations not yet effective and not adopted in advance by the Group The following standards and interpretations should be mentioned in particular: - Revised IAS 24 - Related party disclosures, which simplify the type of information required with regard to transactions with related parties when public entities are involved and clarifies the definition of related party. The principle is applicable from 1 January IFRS 9- Financial Instruments: issued to replace over time IAS 39, it introduces new criteria for the classification and measurement of financial assets and liabilities and the derecognition of financial assets. - IFRIC 14 - Prepayments for minimum funding contribution- companies are permitted to recognise as assets, prepayments for minimum funding contributions. The principle is applicable from 1 January IFRS 1 - First-time Adoption of IFRS: application of fair value measurement to assets related to special operations such as IPO or privatization in response to a local law in the preparation of IFRS financial statements even though the company had already determined a fair value of assets and liabilities in the financial statements at the date of transition to IFRS. - IFRS 7 Financial instruments Additional disclosure: it regulates in an integrated way the qualitative and quantitative information required by the standard about the nature and extent of risks inherent in financial instruments, including cases of transfer of assets to a third party but with the "continuing involvement" of the transferor. In FY2010 the above-mentioned changes in accounting standards and interpretations had no impact on the Group Going concern assumption The reader should refer to section "Business Outlook" for a detailed analysis of the considerations on the basis of which, despite various uncertainties, the Directors believe that the Group can continue to operate as going concern in the foreseeable future for at least 12 months, therefore considering appropriate the preparation of the annual report on a going concern basis Comparability of accounting data The financial statements, set out in the previous Chapter 3 - "Financial Statements of 2010" do not have comparative data since the financial statements for the year ended 31 December 2010 were prepared for the first time on a consolidated basis.

72 The opening balances in the statements of changes in shareholders' equity at 31 December 2010 and the statement of cash flows at the same date refer to the individual financial statements of the Company at 31 December However, for the purposes of disclosure requirements relating to the execution of the contribution operation and the subsequent implementation of the in kind and in cash capital increase, pro-forma consolidated financial statements at 31 December 2009 were prepared and included in the Prospectus in compliance with the requirements set forth in EC Regulation 809/2004. These proforma data have been audited in accordance with reference standards. In these notes, for a better examination of the financial and equity performance of the Group, the changes in the consolidated statement of financial position contained in section 4.6 and the changes in the income statement contained in section 4.7 shall be discussed by comparing the consolidated data at 31 December 2010, set out in Chapter 3, with the pro-forma consolidated data at 31 December With regard to the net financial position, consolidated data at 31 December 2010 are compared with data resulting from the individual financial statements at 31 December 2009, indicating, where applicable, the effect on the consolidated assets and liabilities of the contribution of the Aviation Branch and the consolidation of the wholly owned subsidiaries Wokita and Sameitaly with effect from 28 February The comparability of the data presented in the above financial statements is also affected by the Aviation Business contribution operation, which took place with effectiveness from 28 February 2010, and which entailed a change in the size of the Company and, as a result of the acquisition of control over the subsidiaries Wokita S.r.l. and Sameitaly S.r.l., the obligation to prepare also the consolidated financial statements.

As mentioned, the comparison in absolute terms loses significance and the trends in the costs and revenues are analysed comparing, where relevant, the percentage impact on revenues. It should be recalled that the aim of the preparation of the pro-forma data was to represent, according to measurement criteria consistent with historical data and compliant with the relevant legislation, the effects of the contribution in kind on the financial performance and equity position of Meridiana fly S.p.A., as if it had taken place on 31 December 2009 or on 1 January 2009 respectively for the Statement of Financial Position and for the Income Statement. However, it should be noted that if the contribution in kind had really taken place at that hypothetical date, the results obtained might have differed from the pro-forma data. It should also be noted that the preparation of the 2009 pro-forma data not including the activities of the first two months of the Aviation Business and of the subsidiaries Wokita and Sameitaly would not have been possible without the use of disproportionate and non-cost-effective resources with respect to the disclosure purposes of this annual report. Meridiana fly - Annual Financial Report at 31 December

75 4.3. Seasonality of the business The demand for air transport, above all in the leisure/holiday segment, is characterized by significant seasonality. As regards the Meridiana fly Group, the business is concentrated in the third quarter of the year (35% of total revenue is concentrated in this quarter) and is more limited in the second and fourth quarter, with the exception of the periods around holidays (Christmas/New Year, Easter and long weekends). The Medium Haul business is particularly significant in the summer period, while the Long Haul leisure business to exotic and tropical destinations has inverse seasonality, as it is concentrated in the winter period (November April). For a discussion on significant non-recurring events and transactions with reference to the consolidated financial statements, please refer to section 9.6, containing this information for the separate financial statements, since the consolidation of the subsidiaries Sameitaly and Wokita did not result in the recognition of any significant non-recurring events and transactions Consolidation scope and criteria These consolidated financial statements at 31 December 2010 include the data of Meridiana fly and those of its subsidiaries, Sameitaly and Wokita, prepared at the same date. A list of the consolidated companies, together with the related information set out in Art. 38 of Legislative Decree 127/91, is provided below: Scope of consolidation Parent Company: Registered office Share Capital Percentage owned Ownership Direct Indirect Total Total Meridiana fly S.p.A. Olbia 20,901, Fully consolidated subsidiaries: Wokita S.r.l. Olbia 35, % 0.00% % % Sameitaly S.r.l.. Olbia 95, % 0.00% % % Associates accounted for with equity method: EF USA Inc. New Jersey $1, % 0.00% % % USA Meridiana express Olbia 10, % 0.00% % % It should be noted that the subsidiary EF USA Inc. (100% direct subsidiary, with registered offices in the United States - New Jersey, share capital $ 1,000) is not consolidated as this subsidiary is no longer operational and therefore its consolidation would have no material effects. As indicated in the Notes and in Section 2.17 Significant Litigation, legal proceedings had been initiated for the recovery of receivables in the second half of 2009 when the company was associated at 49%. In addition, Meridiana express S.r.l. (100% direct subsidiary with registered offices in Olbia, share capital 10,000) was not consolidated as it was incorporated in March 2010 and is not yet operational. Also in this case, the consolidation of the data of the subsidiary would have no significant effect on the consolidated financial statements at 31 December Accounting treatment of the contribution of the Aviation Branch The contribution of the Aviation Branch can be defined as a "business combination of entities under common control" given that Meridiana S.p.A., before the transfer in question, already held 59.58% of the shares of the Company. Meridiana fly - Annual Financial Report at 31 December

76 Since the operations of "business combination of entities or businesses under common control" are excluded from the mandatory application of IFRS 3, in the absence of IFRIC-IFRS references, for the purposes of accounting for the contribution operation in the financial statements, reference was made to the document OPI 1 - Preliminary Guidelines by Assirevi regarding IFRS entitled "Accounting for business combinations of entities under common control in the statutory and consolidated financial statements"; the goal of these guidelines is precisely to identify the appropriate accounting treatment under IFRS to be applied in the financial statements of entities under common control involved in the operation. More specifically, the material economic impact of the operation is the discriminating factor for the purposes of recognising contributed assets at fair value rather than at historical values. Pursuant to OPI 1, the material economic impact is demonstrated when the sum of the results and cash flows obtained on the basis of the two stand-alone business plans of the Parent Company and Meridiana is significantly lower than the result and cash flows resulting from the group's business plan after the business combination. In this specific case, as further specified below, this condition is satisfied with respect to the forecast period considered ( ) and consequently the net assets acquired may be recognised at fair value. From another perspective, with reference to the identification of assets and liabilities acquired, it is important to identify whether the buyer in this contribution operation is the Aviation Branch or Meridiana fly. From this point of view it should be noted that in the absence of reference standards for the "business combination of entities under common control", the IFRS 3 standard has been applied by analogy for the purposes of identifying the buyer. By applying this standard, the Aviation branch was identified as the buyer, given its greater size compared to Meridiana fly both in terms of amount of revenue and fair value of net assets, considering in this respect also the net cash attributable to the branch on the basis of historical evidence of cash and cash equivalents, although this item has not been allocated in the identification of assets and liabilities contributed, given the considerable size of the capital increase planned after the contribution. The accounting treatment applied to recognise the effects of the contribution (in particular goodwill) resulted, therefore, in the recognition at fair value of Meridiana fly net assets, while the net liabilities contributed by the Aviation Branch were recorded at historical values. Consequently, the 15.3 million increase in the equity of the Group recognised for the purposes of preparing these financial statements (before transaction related costs) is the difference between the capital gains arising from the recognition at fair value of Meridiana fly net assets as of 28 February 2010, amounting to 56.4 million and the net liabilities contributed by the Aviation Branch. It should be noted that these net liabilities, as determined by the Directors on 31 August 2009, amounting to 37.1 million are adjusted (i) upward for the depreciation of the Aviation Branch ( 2.0 million) accrued in the period as specified in the deed of contribution, (ii) upward for the amount of 7.1 million corresponding to the 50% interest in Sameitaly and Wokitarecorded at historical values in the consolidated financial statements of the buyer, identified as Meridiana S.p.A., as more fully described in section 4.9 and (iii) downward for the adjustment (equal to 5.2 million) of the Aviation Branch to the recognition criteria of the so-called "Proceeds from prepaid tickets" which was measured on an accrual basis (as outlined in the preceding section Accounting standards and measurement criteria). The fair value of the Aviation branch, albeit not impacting on the accounts due to the accounting treatment used, was quantified in million by an independent third party surveyor, who had been appointed ad hoc for the contribution operation. In light of the expiry of the12 months period set by IFRS 3 (also in this case applied mutatis mutandis to the business combinations of entities under common control, given the absence of reference standards) according to which the accounting for the business combination can be changed to take into account additional information available about the existence, measurement and allocation of the resulting surplus, the Directors have verified the assumptions used and described above for the recognition of the operation at fair value. In this regard, the Directors have confirmed, in the final allocation of the surplus emerged, that no specific asset was identified to which the surplus, determined by the accounting treatment indicated above, should be allocated. Therefore, goodwill was recognized as intangible asset, confirming its original recognition. In addition, the Directors examined the new strategies and actions described in section New Business Plan in order to assess, despite some changes in strategy compared to the previous plan, consistency in terms of achieving synergic Meridiana fly - Annual Financial Report at 31 December

77 effects from the combination with the aviation business of Meridiana Aviation branch. Indeed, as described in this section, the achievement of results and cash flows significantly higher than those that the two entities would have achieved in the absence of the business combination is the essential prerequisite to the final recognition of the business combination at fair value. In this framework, the Directors have identified significant incremental cash flows - measured as lower short-term negative cash flows related to operating losses - compared to those that would have been achieved in the absence of the business combination. This finding is primarily founded on the scale achieved by the Group following the business combination, which allows for the implementation of strategies for sizing and restructuring that would not have been achievable by two separate entities. In particular, the business combination allows for significant savings in overhead costs represented by headquarters staff and consultancy costs; the management of a single AOC (Air Operator Certificate) leads to a reduction in staff assigned to oversee ground operations while with two separate AOCs, due to regulatory constraints, this staff would have been duplicated for some functions; in addition, strategic action designed to focus the business on profitable routes, discontinuing unprofitable ones, due to the existence of a single AOC, may result in an optimization of the fleet - with the non-renewal of operating leases for six MD80 - with the resulting savings in variable costs of flight, mainly represented by (i) operating lease instalments (ii) the crew, which would have not occurred with separate AOCs, due to regulatory constraints of minimum capacity required to cover the routes operated; finally, a single AOC allows for the renegotiation of a single employment contract, compared with the previous two; this would have not been possible in the case of two separate companies. These synergies, throughout the plan, are estimated to be at least 35 million. Following these considerations, the Directors have definitively confirmed the recognition of the business combination in the consolidated financial statements at 31 December 2010 using the above mentioned accounting treatment Analysis of the statement of financial position as at 31 December 2010 Non-current assets Non-current assets at 31 December 2010 amounted to 141,397 thousand, up by 3,094 thousand compared to the value of 138,303 in 2009 pro-forma. Ref 1 Intangible assets Intangible assets amounted to 61,432 thousand decreasing by 639 thousand compared to 62,071 thousand of the pro-forma financial statements at 31 December The breakdown of intangible assets is described below. "Goodwill", the recognition of which should be considered as final, as mentioned in section 4.5, amounted to 59,809 thousand. No specific assets were identified to which all or part of that goodwill could be allocated; goodwill includes the effects of the Aviation branch contribution as well as the consolidation of Sameitaly and Wokita, accounted for as follows: The recognition of goodwill amounting to 56.4 million resulting from (i) the recognition at fair value rather than at historical values of the aforementioned contribution operation in accordance with the provisions of the OPI 1 document for "business combination of entities or businesses under common control "and (ii) identification of the Aviation branch as the buyer in the business combination, given its greater size compared to Meridiana fly both in terms of the amount of revenue and value of net assets For more details about the accounting treatment of the Aviation branch contribution, the reader should refer to the previous Section 4.5. The recognition of goodwill amounting to EUR 6.9 million resulting from the consolidation of Sameitaly and Wokita which, as a result of the impairment test performed at the reporting date, was written down by 3.4 million (of which 2.0 million relating to Sameitaly and 1.4 million relating to Wokita). Following this write-down, net goodwill recognized in the financial statements amounts to 3.4 million (of which 2.0 million relating to Sameitaly and 1.4 million related to Wokita). Meridiana fly - Annual Financial Report at 31 December

78 More specifically, as required by the accounting standards described in section 4.1, the Directors, supported by ad hoc appointed experts, performed the impairment test of goodwill in accordance with IFRS / IAS international standards, in particular IAS 36 "Impairment of assets". In particular, the Directors relied on two different experts, appointed respectively: to carry out the impairment test of the net invested capital - "carrying amount" of CGU Meridiana fly; to carry out the impairment test of goodwill resulting from the consolidation of Sameitaly and Wokita, as, for the preparation of the separate financial statements, impairment tests were performed on the recoverability of the carrying amount of the investments in question, which are also relevant for the purposes of assessing the surplus value allocated to goodwill in the consolidated financial statements with specific reference to the assets managed by the subsidiaries themselves. The supporting documents to the impairment tests have been reviewed and approved by the Board of Directors on 18 March 2011, with regard to impairment test of Sameitaly and Wokita and on 23 March 2011, prior to the approval of the consolidated financial statements, with regard to the CGU Meridiana fly. The considerations made in relation to the impairment tests performed are described below. Impairment test on the CGU Meridiana fly Following the completion of the strategic business combination with the aviation activities of Meridiana, the corporate entity resulting from this process - Meridiana fly S.p.A. - is now a single business unit which, for the purposes of the "impairment" analysis may not be "split" into different CGUs. In this regard it should be noted that the allocation, for the purposes of the impairment test between scheduled and charter activities, between activities with and without the constraints of territorial continuity, between medium and long haul flights, would not be consistent with the Directors' strategic vision of the Company and would be characterized by the absence of autonomy in the formulation of competitive strategy. In addition, it should be noted that the joint management of resources (human, material and financial resources) would make it impossible to identify autonomous cash flows attributable to the individual operating units, especially in light of the internal organisation adopted by management for the new post-combination entity; this organisation, in fact, expressly provides that activities carried out respond to a single central structure, which is responsible for defining management guidelines applicable across the various business functions. Consequently there is no production units as part of aviation activity by the group, constitute the complete set of decision-making autonomy with respect to the entity and therefore likely to be identified in CGU in accordance with IAS 36, the exercise impairment on the activity of air transport has been carried out with reference to the airline as a whole. Consequently, the recoverable amount is determined by reference to the single CGU Meridiana fly. Remember that, after integration, as further described in section 4.12, the segment reporting required by IFRS 8 is not provided at interim results of separate business unit, as the "reporting tools for decision making "do not separate direct and indirect inputs but they are uniformly consistent with the strategies and management structures, as well as the functional organization of the company described above. According to IAS 36, the recoverable amount is the higher of the fair value and the value in use. Fair value is the amount obtainable from the sale in an arm's length transaction between knowledgeable, willing parties, less any directly attributable expenses. Depending on circumstances, this amount is determined according to the agreed price if there is a binding sale agreement stipulated in a transaction between independent parties (net of disposal costs) or the market price, fewer costs to sell if the asset is traded in an active market. On the other hand the value in use results from discounting, using an appropriate discount rate, expected positive and negative cash flows to be derived from using the asset / CGU until the end of its useful life. The impairment loss resulting from the impairment test is measured by the excess of the carrying amount of the asset compared to its recoverable amount. In this regard, the Directors believe, that the financial projections underlying the New Industrial Plan , approved by the Board of Directors on 18 March 2011, are not suitable for the purposes of a possible measurement of economic value, in terms of value in use, of the CGU Meridiana; this opinion is in line with the objective to immediately implement a particularly incisive restructuring process which may lead to improved profitability and, subsequently, to establishing the basis for a possible broad strategic alliance providing a sustainable growth in the long run. In fact, any value that would result from discounting these Meridiana fly - Annual Financial Report at 31 December

79 amounts, would not in any case account for the even minimal growth assumptions in the medium or long term (e.g. in terms of new business strategies, strategic alliances with other operators, etc..) while it would be penalized by heavy negative cash flows expected during 2011; in this financial year in fact the restructuring activities which constitute the basis for the recovery of profitability in the medium term, would still be on-going. Moreover, the inclusion in the financial projections of the Business Plan of both the benefits of the restructuring, in terms of higher revenues and lower outflows, due to cost cutting, and the costs of the restructuring in terms of increased outflows included in the related provisions in accordance with international accounting standards, makes the Plan effectively unusable for the purposes of the impairment test; IAS 36, paragraph 44 states in fact that "The future cash flows of the assets must be estimated with reference to current conditions. The estimates of future cash flows should not include estimated future cash inflows or outflows that are expected to arise from: (a) a future restructuring to which an entity is not yet committed, and (b) the improvement or optimization of a business performance". Given the above, the fact that Meridiana fly is a company listed on the Italian stock exchange allows compliance with the conditions laid down by international accounting standards, for the purposes of considering the company value as measurable based on market prices expressed by stock prices. In this regard, including on the basis of the opinion expressed by the expert appointed, the following considerations been taken into account: For the purposes of determining fair value, the market data resulting at year-end closing on was considered, amounting to per share, resulting in a total value of 62,873 thousand. This value is significant for the purposes of estimating fair value because it coincides with the FY end and because it is lower than the average for the year. As an additional scenario, the average of the last 4 months of 2010 was also considered; this was the period after completion of the capital increase. During this period, the stock was affected by a fall in stock market prices and the average price in this four-month period was , which results in a comprehensive assessment of Meridiana fly of 68,133 thousand. The weighted average price for the same period is slightly higher, amounting to It should be noted that, after , and especially after 11 February 2011, there was an increase in the company's stock prices, and, concurrently an increase in trading volume, following the dramatic announcement to the market of the launch of the restructuring plan resulting in the beginning of procedures for subsidised redundancy schemes and collective layoff for a significant number of employees. Finally, for information purposes, it should be noted that, even if one were to consider, as a limit case, the minimum closing price recorded in the past 12 months, amounting to on 30 November 2010, the total capitalization of the Company would stand at 55,345 thousand. Based on the above information, the following table shows the different levels of capitalization of the entire company for the various stock market prices. Day / Time Price / Avg Price Capitalisation (000) 1) ,873 2) ,133 3) ,345 Just for comparison, it should be noted that the capitalisation based on the average price recorded by the stock during 2011 (period ) would amount to 81,562 thousand, and the capitalisation referred to the average price recorded so far in the month of March (period ) would be 101,136 thousand. Meridiana fly - Annual Financial Report at 31 December

80 It is believed that the market value, given a free float of about 20%, is sufficiently representative to determine the market liquidity and marketability of the share on the stock exchange, taking into account the average daily trading volume recorded in the period of observation. In this regard it should be noted that the average daily volume of trading in the last quarter of 2010 totalled 3.35 million shares, and, given an average stock price in the same period of , it corresponds to an average daily trade amounting to about 160,000. The period is used because it is subsequent to the capital increase completed in August 2010 and therefore is not affected by the change in the number of shares. According to estimates made, the market value (fair value) - which, moreover, for the purposes of consistent comparison with the carrying value should be increased by the amount of net debt - was significantly higher than the book net invested capital as at the date of the financial statements ("carrying value"), estimated at approximately 45 million. Therefore no impairment loss is applicable to the CGU Meridiana fly and the related Goodwill. This conclusion was confirmed by tests carried out - for the sole purpose of assessing the measurement made according to the methods described above - making use of the multiples method, expressed by the market and identified only with regard the income statement indicators of sales and Ebitdar. In both cases, the valuation of the CGU based on market multiples would be higher than the carrying value. Please refer to Section 2.25 above Ref 2 for a discussion on the risks related to the impairment evaluation process, given the conditions in which the Company and the Group are currently operating. Impairment test on goodwill arising upon consolidation of Sameitaly and Wokita As mentioned, the performance of the impairment test related to Sameitaly and Wokita, carried out by an appointed expert, resulted in an overall write-down amounting to 3.4 million. This impairment was recognised for 50% of the total value of goodwill recorded, as this impairment is attributable only to the share (amounting precisely to 50%) of these subsidiaries already held by the Company prior to 28 February In fact, upon consolidation, the value of the investments, by applying the historical values in accordance with OIC (Italian Accounting Board) Principle 4 and with reference to the separate and consolidated financial statements of Meridiana S.p.A., has been recognised - for the remaining 50% held by the Aviation Branch of Meridiana which was identified as the acquiring party in the business combination - at historical values as therein recorded, with no additional surplus. Please refer to the information given in paragraph 9.7 Ref. 5 - Investments - for a discussion on the impairment test carried out to determine the recoverable amount of Sameitaly and Wokita, which was estimated by discounting operating cash flows (method UDCF Unleveraged Discounted Cash Flow ) in the time horizon of the new business plan approved by the Boards of Directors of the two subsidiaries on 17 March 2011, to which the terminal value of cash flows normalised through the perpetuity formula and the value of Net debt at the date of the estimate were added. The discount rate used (equal to the weighted average cost of capital - WACC) was 11% for Sameitaly and 16% for Wokita. The estimates were made taking into account past experience as well as the objective difficulties in making projections in the current economic and financial environment, in particular in the reference industry; as a result, no expected growth rate ("g ) was calculated to mitigate the risks that the assumptions underlying the plan could not be fully met. Given the significant sensitivity of the value in use to changes in the discount rate or the rate of growth used in the estimates - in a situation where revenues (in volume and value) and operating costs, as well as the rate of discount itself, are dependent on the evolution of macroeconomic variables that cannot be controlled by the Company - the Board of Directors cannot rule out that, in the future, differences in the performance of these variables compared to those reasonably foreseeable on the basis of current knowledge and scenario forecasts obtained from third-party sources, and used to pinpoint the underlying assumptions of forecast data, may lead to further write-downs of goodwill arising upon consolidation of these investments. "Concessions, licenses, trademarks and similar rights" amounted to 839 thousand, of which 583 thousand obtained from the contribution operation. They include the value of Meridiana brand, the costs incurred for the use of software licenses, implementation/upgrade of the website platform and the acquisition of software. The increase during the year is linked to investments in new software. Meridiana fly - Annual Financial Report at 31 December

81 "Start-up and expansion costs", amounting to 31 thousand, mainly include the net residual costs of pilots training; these costs are guaranteed by surety in favour of Meridiana fly in the event of staff leaving in the three years following the training. "Other intangible assets" amounting to 753 thousand, are mainly related to the residual net value of the ancillary charges incurred for new aircraft of the A320 and A330 type, acquired through operating leases. Ref 2 Fleet Within the Aviation Branch, ten owned MD-82 aircraft were contributed to Meridian fly. As a result the net book value of the fleet at 31 December 2010 amounted to 29,750 thousand ( 30,090 thousand in the pro forma financial statements at 31 December 2009). The new investments made during the period for extraordinary maintenance and purchases of rotating material amounted to 4,140 thousand, while depreciation amounted to 4,330 thousand. With reference to the "Fleet" item, presented in the financial statements as a separate item following the contribution of the Aviation Branch and resulting primarily from this operation, it should be noted that - based on the assumptions included in the Business Plan - the date of decommissioning (the so-called "phase out ") of the aircraft is set in Consistent with this assumption the useful life of such assets was confirmed and the related depreciation was calculated. With reference to the individual components, the useful life was estimated taking into account the possible use of the individual components, also considering the disposal of the fleet. As part of the impairment test carried out in relation to the CGU Meridiana fly, the value of the fleet was included in its carrying amount, and therefore, on the basis of our previous discussion on the criteria used in the identification of the CGU, we consider that the conclusions reached confirm the amount at which the aircraft were recognised, based on the impairment test performed on the CGU Meridiana fly as a whole. Ref 3 Other property, plant and equipment "Other property, plant and equipment" amounted to 18,511 thousand, decreasing by 1,670 thousand compared to the proforma data at 31 December 2009, amounting to 20,181 thousand. Capital expenditure during the year amounted to 4,029 thousand, while depreciation was 5,351 thousand. This item includes: Land and buildings ( 6,090 thousand) which relate to the office building in Via Ettore Bugatti 15, Milan, to which a total mortgage of 10,000 thousand is attached in the lender bank s favour. In view of the transfer of the registered office to Olbia, which took place in early 2010, and the organisational changes underway, which include moving general and administrative offices currently in Milan to Olbia, the carrying value of the property was verified by the Directors with reference to its market value based on a fair value estimate, net of selling cost. This valuation was made with the help of an independent expert. This audit revealed an impairment loss, taking into account the destination of the property, its characteristics and the current difficult real estate market, amounting to 855 thousand; the loss was recorded in the 2010 income statement in item "Depreciation and write-downs ". "Equipment on leased aircraft" ( 8,763 thousand), which refers to the net value of improvements made to the fleet under operating lease, and the net value of provisions for maintenance for aircraft reconditioning and phase out, which are capitalised and systematically depreciated. "Plant and Machinery" ( 842 thousand), which include rolling components, improvements to leased aircraft in the fleet, and capitalised maintenance costs.

83 Ref 4 Deferred tax assets This item amounted to 7,480 thousand, decreasing by 1,631 thousand compared to the corresponding item in the pro-forma statements at 31 December 2009, amounting to 9,111 thousand; the decrease mainly reflected the updated estimate of deferred tax assets based on recoverable tax losses under the New Business Plan and the recognition of deferred tax assets related to IRES and IRAP resulting from positive temporary differences which will flow into future financial years reporting a tax profit in accordance with the provisions of the Plan. The changes in FY2010 of deferred tax assets compared to the amounts in the individual financial statements of Meridiana fly at 31 December 2009 are summarized in the table below.

The reader should refer to section 4.1 "Accounting standards and criteria" for a discussion on the effects on the measurement of deferred tax assets, resulting from a failure to realize the future taxable income envisaged in the Plan. It should be noted that the total amount of tax losses carried forward in the financial years included in the new business plan amounted to approximately million. As already noted, the analysis of recoverability of deferred tax assets, which led to a net reduction in these assets for an amount of 1.9 million (including a reduction of 3.1 million relating to the benefits associated to the tax losses carried forward, partially offset by the recognition in this financial year of deferred tax assets for IRES and IRAP taxes relating to positive temporary differences that will flow into future financial years reporting a tax profit ) was based on the expected taxable income that could be inferred from the new business plan for the financial years Meridiana fly - Annual Financial Report at 31 December

It should be noted that staff costs benefited from the application of solidarity contracts for approximately 9.6 million; in the first nine months of 2010 these contracts were applied to flight crew (pilots and flight attendants), As a result of the business combination with the Aviation Branch and the concurrent spin-off of the maintenance branch MRO, employees increased in terms of FTE by approximately 1,000. Ref 32 Depreciation and amortization They amounted to 14,750 thousand compared to 12,692 thousand in 2009 pro forma financial statements. The increase over the previous year is related to (i) the contribution of the Aviation Branch of Meridiana, which contributeda significant amount of tangible assets (owned fleet of aircraft and other fixed assets of over 32 million); (ii) the amortisation of goodwill upon consolidation of subsidiaries Sameitaly and Wokita for 3,438 thousand (see Ref 1), as well as the write-down made to the value of the headquarters building of 855 thousand to reflect the lower estimated realizable value (see Ref 3).

This item includes the provisions set aside to meet outstanding litigation with passengers, employees, suppliers and other counterparties, taking into account the specific assessments carried out with the support of legal opinions, which led to more conservative allocations for the year given the large number and the weight of the individual proceedings. Ref 34 Other adjustment provisions The item "Other adjustment provisions" amounted to 4,970 thousand compared to 2,399 thousand in 2009 pro forma financial statements.

Meridiana fly has significant tax losses carried forward amounting to approximately million, including tax loss realized during the 2010, which gave rise to the recognition in the consolidated financial statements of deferred tax assets linked to the future use of some of these losses for an amount of 4,231 thousand, in view of expected taxable profits envisaged in the new Strategic Plan and taking into account the time limit in which these losses can be carried forward. For more details on this issue, please refer to the previous section. ref. 4 - Deferred tax assets Analysis of changes in consolidated equity The extraordinary corporate transactions that affected the changes in equity during FY 2010 are summarised below: The Extraordinary Shareholders' meeting of 21 December 2009 passed resolution to cover the losses incurred during the period 1 September October 2009 amounting to 3,828,247 through the use, for an equivalent amount, of the share capital, which was reduced to 7,256,024.92, with no changes in the number of shares registered in the Register of Companies of Milan on 10 February On 28 February 2010 the in-kind capital increase was completed, with the exclusion of the pre-emptive right pursuant to article 2441 of the Italian Civil Code approved by the Extraordinary Shareholders' Meeting on 21 December 2009; the capital increase was paid in kind through the contribution of the Aviation Branch by Meridiana S.p.A.; more specifically, 325,247,524 shares were issued at a price of , of which 0.02 to cover the implicit par value, and as share premium for a total of approximately million. Therefore there was a net increase in share capital and reserves of 52,560 thousand ( 6,505 thousand and 46,055 thousand respectively), adjusted for the effects of the business contribution of 37,232 thousand. As, at 31 March 2010, Meridiana fly fell within the cases provided by Article 2446 of the Italian Civil Code (losses of more than one third of the capital), Meridiana S.p.A. announced that it would convert the interest-free loan of 10 million granted on 21 December 2009 in a payment of equal amount as advance for future capital increase, thereby increasing the equity reserves of the Company. Meridiana fly - Annual Financial Report at 31 December

95 On 15 July 2010, following the approval by Consob, the company published the prospectus relating to the listing of shares issued as part of the capital increase in kind previously described; to the pre-emptive right granted to shareholders and to the listing of maximum 714,044,394 ordinary shares of Meridiana fly at a price of 0.056, of which 0.01 to cover the implicit par value and in share premium. At the completion of this transaction 663,275,424 newly issued ordinary shares were subscribed and paid up during the pre-emption period as well as168,000 new shares which were issued at the end of the offer on the Stock Exchange of non-exercised rights. Finally, as a result of the commitment assumed by Meridiana, 50,600,970 new ordinary shares were further subscribed and paid up by the latter for a total consideration of 2,834 thousand. As a result of the above the share capital increased by 7,140 thousand and reserves by 32,846 thousand. During FY 2010 some expenses directly related to Meridiana fly capital increase in cash and in kind mentioned above were incurred, amounting to 1,490 thousand, net of tax effect, and booked as a direct reduction from the capital increase. On 13 December 2010 the parent Meridiana S.p.A. made an advance payment for future capital increase of Euro 5,000 thousand which was recorded as "Other reserves" in shareholders' equity. In view of the changes discussed above and of the net loss of 46,411 thousand reported for the 2010 financial year, the equity at 31 December 2010 amounted to 8,439 thousand.

Please note that, as explained in Section Accounting treatment of the contribution of the Aviation branch, the branch was identified as the "buyer" for the purposes of recognising the effects of the contribution in accordance with IFRS 3, which was applied by analogy. Consequently, the values must be the same as those obtained from the consolidated reporting of the Aviation branch, because, in preparing its consolidated financial statements, Meridiana S.p.A. neutralizes the benefits it recognised in equity in the separate financial statements as a result of the fair value measurement of the mentioned investments (amounting to 7,119 thousand), the Meridiana fly - Annual Financial Report at 31 December

96 same accounting treatment should be undertaken by the Company pursuant to OIC Principle 4 in its consolidated financial reporting. Therefore, against the recognition of the investments in Sameitaly and Wokita in the separate financial statements of the Company at the amount resulting from the contribution (corresponding to the amount reported in the separate financial statements of Meridiana S.p.A. and measured at fair value), for the purposes of preparing these consolidated financial statements the positive effect on consolidated shareholders' equity resulting from the contribution for an amount of 7,119 thousand, was neutralized; this amount correspond to the aforementioned benefits resulting from recognising the contributed investments at a carrying value which is the same as the one resulting from the fair value measurement in the financial statements of the transferor, Meridiana S.p.A Financial management As shown in the consolidated cash flow statement, which illustrated the changes in cash and cash equivalents with the indirect method, FY 2010 was characterized by an increase in cash, net of current bank loans (similar to bank overdrafts), for 12,182 thousand.

In particular, capital expenditure in tangible and intangible assets amounted to 8,460 thousand. - Cash flows generated from financing activities In the financial year, cash flow generated from financing activities was positive for 24,439 thousand; it resulted largely from the additional loan of 8.5 million granted by Meridiana S.p.A. and from the conversion of a stand-by revolving facility of 15 million Meridiana fly - Annual Financial Report at 31 December

99 4.11. Guarantees given, commitments and other contingent liabilities Sureties and other guarantees given At 31 December 2010 the guarantees given to third parties by banks on behalf of the Group amounted to approximately 45 million. These bank sureties mainly refer to guarantees issued in favour of Cartasì ( 20 million), ENAC for tender participation on the routes under territorial continuity ( 10.3 million), aircraft lessors ( 6.1 million), oil companies ( 2.3 million), handlers ( 2 million) and other suppliers of materials, operational and financial services. At 31 December 2010, a surety issued by an insurance company in favour of the Ministry of Defence to guarantee the 2011 contract of 2.4 million, and a pledge in favour of a bank for a total of USD 4.2 million, were outstanding. A first mortgage of the value of 10 million is recorded on the Company's registered office in Via Bugatti, Milan, 15 in favour of Banca Profilo as a guarantee of the mortgage loan granted by it for the purchase of the said property. Commitments and other agreements Commitments for operating leases of Airbus A330 / A320 aircraft at 31 December 2010 amounted to million, taking into account all maturities until The annual commitments for real estate leases amounted to approximately 2.1 million; it should also be noted that outsourcing agreements with Meridiana Maintenance for the provision of exclusive maintenance services determine a financial commitment which varies according to the maintenance activities carried out. Finally, the reader should refer to Section Agreement with ORP for details on the commitments undertaken with this counterparty. Contingent liabilities With regard to on-going disputes and the situation concerning these proceedings, as outlined in section Significant litigation, although the Company may be required to pay higher amounts than those allocated to the provision for liabilities and charges, it is not possible to reasonably predict the outcome of the proceedings and assess the likelihood of additional charges against the company Segment reporting With reference to IFRS 8 on segment reporting, the operating segments that are deemed as necessary by the management for the purposes of assessing operating performance and make consequential decisions, are currently established, after the complete integration of the Aviation branch of Meridiana, in the Group as a whole. Indeed, following the completion of the strategic business combination with the aviation activities of Meridiana, the corporate entity resulting from this process - Meridiana fly S.p.A. - is now a single business unit which cannot be "split" into different CGUs In this regard it should be noted that the allocation, for the purposes of the impairment test between scheduled and charter activities, between activities with and without the constraints of territorial continuity, between medium and long haul flights, would not be consistent with the Directors' strategic vision of the Company and would be characterized by the absence of autonomy in the formulation of competitive strategy. In addition, it should be noted that the joint management of resources (human, material and financial resources) would make it impossible to identify autonomous cash flows attributable to the individual operating units, especially in light of the internal organisation adopted by management for the new post-combination entity; this organisation, in fact, expressly provides that activities carried out respond to a single central structure, which is responsible for defining management guidelines applicable across the various business functions. Meridiana fly - Annual Financial Report at 31 December

100 Therefore there are no production units within the aviation business carried out by the Group such as to represent independent decisions making systems with respect to the entity and therefore to be identified in distinct reporting segments pursuant to IFRS 8. From another perspective, the revenues and total assets attributable to the subsidiaries Sameitaly (General Sales Agent) and Wokita (tour operator) cannot be considered as significant. Therefore, in these notes, there are no data or tables presented for distinct business segments at a more detailed level than that of the entire Group Related party transactions At 31 December 2010 Meridiana fly S.p.A. is controlled by Meridiana S.p.A. with a share of 78.05% (at the end of 2009 it was 59.58%).

The services provided by AKFED are mainly related to the operating lease of the A319 I-EEZQ included in the fleet in June Relations with Alisarda Services provided by Alisarda (a subsidiary of Geasar S.p.A.) currently concern the leasing of offices and equipment at the Olbia Headquarters and other spaces at the airport of Olbia; Meridiana fly provides instead various administrative services. Relations with Cortesa Services provided by Cortesa (a subsidiary of Geasar S.p.A.) are related to the canteen services at the Olbia Headquarters and the use of airport parking, while Meridiana provides payroll services. Relations with Air Uganda, Air Burkina, Air Mali Relations with these airlines, controlled by AKFED, concern the technical management of Web sites carried out by Meridiana fly. Relations with EF USA The activity of EF-USA (100% owned by Meridiana fly but not consolidated - see. Section 4.4) was the provision of brokerage services for scheduled flights sales on behalf of the Company, with exclusivity on the territory of North America; these services were remunerated with sales commissions. As previously mentioned, the agency relationship with the above company ceased in November 2009 and a dispute is currently on-going with the same, as indicated in the section on significant litigation List of equity investments Please refer to Section 9.15 of the separate financial statements Compensation paid to Directors and Statutory Auditors Please refer to Section 9.16 of the separate financial statements Meridiana fly - Annual Financial Report at 31 December

103 4.16. Fees paid to Independent Auditors Please refer to Section 9.17 of the separate financial statements Disclosure concerning financial risks The section below provides a general analysis of the main financial risks identified and managed by the Group. The Group is exposed to the following financial risks associated with its operations: credit risk: which includes the possibility of default by a counterparty or the possibility of deterioration of the creditworthiness assigned to counterparties; market risk: resulting from exposure to fluctuating interest and exchange rates; liquidity risk: the risk of available financial resources being insufficient and lack of access to the credit market The quantitative data reported below have no predictive value. In particular, sensitivity analyses concerning market risks cannot reflect the complexity and the associated reactions of the markets possibly arising from each hypothetical variable. As required by IFRS 7, below we detail the financial assets and liabilities at 31 December 2010 identified for the purposes of this analysis. Notes Other non-current financial assets 21,659 Non-current financial assets 21,659 9 Trade receivables and other current assets 138, Current financial assets 479 Current financial assets 138,615 Total financial assets 160, Long-term borrowings 24,531 Future interest 13,371 Non-current liabilities 37, Current loans 7, Current portion of long-term borrowings Trade payables and other current liabilities 200,422 Current liabilities 208,367 Total financial liabilities 246,269 Total financial liabilities 246,269 Credit risk The maximum theoretical credit risk is represented by the accounting value of financial assets, current and non-current, realised as part of sales to third parties or for providing guarantees to third parties The Group currently generates most of its turnover through the sales of scheduled flights and seats on charter flights, with the consequence that its ordinary customer base consists Meridiana fly - Annual Financial Report at 31 December

104 mainly of private entities, tour operators and travel agencies. The risk of non-collection of credit is addressed contractually by requiring payment in advance of actual flight dates and guarantees or performance deposits guaranteeing fulfilment of contractual obligations. At operating level, compliance with the terms of payment is constantly monitored. It should be noted that the tour operator industry has recently undergone a consolidation process, which involved reducing the number of operators, with too much concentration of customers (the first five customers in 2010 accounted for about 52% of charter revenues; this percentage is unchanged since 2009). The Group also adopts a very restrictive policy with regard to late payments, selecting and evaluating its customers on the basis of their reliability and financial as well as commercial soundness. The Group also provides adequate impairment on individual positions corresponding to problem loans, doubtful loans and nonperforming loans; it also write-down debt on an overall basis, taking into account historical experience or statistical data. The tables below provide information about the Group's exposure to credit risk at 31 December Between 0 and 30 days Between 30 and 60 days Between 60 and 90 days Between 90 and 120 days Over 120 days Breakdown of trade receivables not yet expired: Trade receivables 32,935 10,711 6, ,233 Breakdown of trade receivables past due: Trade receivables 11,350 2,847 5,285 1,411 37,269 58,162 Total 44,285 13,558 11,872 1,411 37, ,395 Provision for doubtful receivables (20,627) Total 87,768 Trade receivables past due by over 120 days include trade payables in litigation With respect to loans overdue by more than 120 days which are not covered by the provision for doubtful receivables, taking into account historical experience, the progress of litigation and legal opinions relating to them as well as the existence of guarantees issued by customers, the credit risk is considered to be mitigated. Market Risk Foreign exchange risk The Group is exposed to the risks arising from fluctuations in exchange rates, as outlined in paragraph 2.25 to which the reader is referred for details. Overall, the main business in foreign currency is transacted in USD, which represents nearly 11% of trade receivables and 11.8% of trade payables at year end. In financial terms, the costs of goods and services denominated in USD account for approximately 46% of total operating costs of the Company Euro USD Other Tot Trade receivables 96,433 11, ,395 Provision for doubtful receivables (21,827) - - (21,827) Other non-current financial assets 2,316 19, ,659 Total current and non-current loans (32,476) - - (32,476) Trade payables (129,841) (17,509) (529) (147,879) Net exposure (85,395) 13,792 (525) (72,128) As regards the management of risks arising from changes in exchange rates, it should be remembered that: The cost of airline tickets for scheduled flights contains a variable fuel surcharge component that is charged to the customer. Meridiana fly - Annual Financial Report at 31 December

105 The charter contracts entered into by the Group with tour operators provide the option to adjust prices according to the EUR/ USD exchange rate at the time of flight. Price Risk The hedging policy implemented by the Group aims to reduce the risks of fluctuations in expected cash flows resulting from purchases of jet fuel, hence they can be classified as highly likely transactions, according to IAS standards. To this end, in 2010, a series of financial products designed to hedge the volatility of fuel prices, have been activated, as detailed in the table below. Hedged underlying amount Type Hedging purpose Counterpart Currency Maturity of derivative contract Fair value at in / 000 Description Notional amount (total amount hedged in M/t) Derivatives with positive fair value Asian Swap Fluctuation in Jet Fuel price Banca MPS USD 13/03/ /02/ Cash Flow Hedge on jet Fuel 2,900 Total change recognised in Income statement 479 The use of these instruments is governed by policies approved by the Board of Directors, consistent with risk management strategies. Derivative hedging instruments, in keeping with the provisions of IAS 39, are accounted for with the methods set out for hedge accounting only when: at the start of the hedge there is a formal designation and documentation of the hedging relationship; the hedge is highly effective; the effectiveness can be reliably demonstrated. When a financial instrument is designated as a hedge of exposure to the variability of cash flows of the hedged transactions (cash flow hedge; e.g. hedging the variability of cash flows of expected future transactions against the effect of fluctuations in exchange rates), the gains and losses deriving from the fair value changes of the hedging instrument are accounted for directly in shareholders equity for the effective part (any ineffective part is instead accounted for immediately in the income statement under the item gains/(losses) on foreign exchange). The amounts recognized in equity are subsequently reflected in the income statement for the period in which the contracts and expected transactions are manifested in the income statement. If an instrument is designated as a hedge of exposure to changes in the fair value of hedged instruments (e.g. hedging of the variability of the fair value of receivables and payables in foreign currencies), it is recognized at fair value with the effects booked to the income statement; accordingly, the hedged instruments are adjusted to reflect the fair value changes associated with the hedged risk. Changes in the fair value of derivatives that do not meet the conditions to qualify as hedges are recognized in profit or loss. Therefore, although the operations carried out in 2010 were completely inherent this risk, in terms of both the "underlying" amount covered, and the financial products used, it was not possible to fully comply with IAS 39, and particularly with regard to the comparison between "hypothetical derivative" and "financial derivative", the time element was excessively misaligned. Based on the "Mark To Market" results, the positive change in the fair value of these financial instruments at 31 December 2010 was then directly recognised in the income statement as a reduction in fuel costs. Interest rate risk Given that the Group has floating rate financial liabilities and that the reference rate in certain aircraft operating leases is variable, the Group is exposed to the risks of increases in interest rates. Meridiana fly - Annual Financial Report at 31 December

106 Liquidity Risk Liquidity risk is represented by the inability to secure enough financial resources at economic conditions to cover all the obligations falling due Below is the schedule presenting the time frame of the financial liabilities of the Group at 31 December 2010, based on nondiscounted contractual payments.

In addition, there are no past due payables to employees. As regards payables of a commercial nature, trade payables past due amounted to 94.9 million, of which 23.0 million past due by more than 120 days (the latter relating for approximately 8.8 million to trade relations involved in legal disputes). There were no suspensions in supplies. There were no demands for payment on overdue debts, outside of those within the ordinary course of business. /000 Between 0 and 30 days Between 30 and 60 days Between 60 and 90 days Between 90 and 120 days More than 120 days Breakdown of trade receivables not yet expired: Trade payables 27,404 15,901 9, ,019 Breakdown of trade receivables past due: Trade payables 27,532 15,313 14,823 14,168 23,025 94,860 Total 54,936 31,213 24,537 14,168 23, ,879 At 31 December 2009 there were pending injunctions for a total of 2.6 million, which mostly relate to Alitalia in extraordinary administration. As a result of commitments made by Meridiana major Shareholder as better described in Section above, it is believed that liquidity risk has been mitigated even if considering the uncertainty related to the outlook discussed in Section Other information At the date of this report there are no shareholders with holdings of more than 2% of capital in addition to the parent Meridiana S.p.A.
