During the first half of 2023, Exor acquired a stake of 2.96% in Philips.

On 14 August 2023, Philips and Exor announced that they had entered into a relationship agreement, as a result of which Exor increased its stake in Philips to 15%. The total amount invested was €2,771 million.

  • Increase in investment in Lingotto funds

During 2023, Exor invested a total amount of €563 million of which €400 million in funds managed by Lingotto, the independent alternative investment manager wholly owned by Exor.

  • Completion of €500 million share buyback program and new program of €1 billion

During the first half of 2023, Exor purchased ordinary shares for a total invested amount of €246 million, completing the €500 million share buyback program announced in March 2022.

On 13 September 2023, Exor's Board approved a new share buyback program up to €1 billion to be completed in the following 12 months. Exor considers buybacks an attractive opportunity to invest in its own Companies when terms are attractive.

As part of this transaction, on 14 September 2023, Exor launched a reverse Dutch auction tender offer for an aggregate consideration up to €750 million to qualifying shareholders.

On 13 October 2023, Exor announced that the tender offer was oversubscribed and priced at zero premium to reference price. In accordance with its irrevocable undertaking, shares were purchased from Giovanni Agnelli B.V. for a total consideration of €202 million.

The tender offer allowed Exor to acquire 3.8% of the issued ordinary shares efficiently and at an attractive discount.

In 2024, Exor expects to buy back shares for the remaining €250 million through on-market purchases of ordinary shares on Euronext Amsterdam.

  • Support to Juventus' capital increase

On 6 October 2023, Juventus communicated Exor's support to the company's capital increase by undertaking to subscribe a portion equivalent to its 63.8% stake and Exor's commitment to execute a contribution for future capital increases for a maximum of €127 million. On 21 December 2023, Juventus communicated that Exor had committed to subscribe for any newly issued shares that may remain unsubscribed at the end of the offering period, up to an aggregate amount equal to approximately €72 million, and that Exor had paid in full its contribution to capital increase.

On 4 April 2024, Juventus announced that following the auction of the pre-emptive rights not exercised during the offer period, its capital increase has been fully subscribed. Therefore, funding of the approximately €72 million that Exor had underwritten is not required.

  • Credit rating upgrade by Standard and Poor's

  • Announcement of change in financial reporting

Exor will change its reporting from 1 January 2024 as it has determined that it is an Investment Entity under IFRS 10 as of that date.

In the past years, Exor has evolved from a holding to an investment entity, driven by a significant change in its portfolio activity and composition, and changes in its portfolio review process to drive capital allocation decisions based on fair value.

In line with IFRS requirements, Exor will deconsolidate portfolio companies and account for them at fair value, while only continuing to consolidate subsidiaries that provide support services to the Investment Entity.

The change in reporting will be applied from 1 January 2024, with a material impact on the presentation of the consolidated financial statements and with first time application in Half-Year 2024 results. The one-off positive impact on the income statement is expected to be approximately €12 billion, resulting from the difference between the net carrying amount of investments previously consolidated or accounted for using the equity method and their fair value at the date of the change. The definitive impact will be disclosed in the Half-Year 2024 results.

Exor believes that this change will better align Exor's reporting and financial disclosures to its business and activities, with NAV and other key metrics audited.
