In this regard, the Borrower represents that the amounts necessary for the estimated remuneration of the SACE guarantee relating to the first year have been deposited into its ordinary account no. 1000/12514 (hereinafter “account A”) at the MILAN Branch, Via Marconi, ang.

2. Disbursement

Piazza Diaz- ag. 08051 of the Bank, through which only the cash flows relating to this Loan may pass; the Bank reserves the right to terminate the said “account B” at the end of the repayment schedule of this loan.

Calculation of interest starts from the date of disbursement

The principal will be repaid in 16 quarterly instalments of Euro 493,750.00 (four hundred and ninety-three thousand seven hundred and fifty/00 Euros) each, with the same due dates as the interest instalments.

The Borrower authorises the charging of the amounts of each instalment to “account A” referred to in Art. 1, which it undertakes to keep open for the entire duration of the Loan and on which it undertakes to promptly make available the funds needed to pay the instalments, in accordance with the provisions of Art. 7 letter d).

4. Interest rate

The interest rate shall be determined for each quarter as one quarter of the sum of the following items:

I. -a fixed annual nominal rate of 1.65 percentage points called the spread;

II. -an annual variable amount equal to the three-month interest rate ( base 360 ) - called EURIBOR - (Euro Interbank Offered Rate) - the reference index for the determination of interest rates - recorded by the administrator of the index, the European Money Markets Institute (EMMI) (or any other entity that may replace it in the future), published on the penultimate bank business day of the month preceding the starting date of each instalment (currently -0.413 % per annum) on the “EURIBOR01” page of the Reuters telematic circuit (or in the future any page or service that may replace it) and normally published in the daily newspaper “Il Sole 24 ORE” the following day. For a description of the Euribor or other information relating to said index, please refer to the EMMI website. In the event of the change of the formula and/or methodology (mathematical or any other kind) used to measure the Euribor in accordance with the procedures in place at the closing date of the contract, the Euribor will be used in accordance with the prevailing formula and/or methodology, as defined in accordance with the provisions of European Regulation 2016/1011 of 8 June 2016. If, for any reason, the EMMI does not record this rate on the expected day, the last known Euribor value will be used. If there is no definitive recording of the Euribor, the replacement index will be the index (including any differential or adjustment) that will be formally recommended by (i) the private sector working group on euro risk-free rates set up by the European Central Bank (“ECB”), the Financial Services and Markets Authority (FSMA), the European Securities and Markets Authority (ESMA) and the European Commission, or (ii) by EMMI, as administrator of EURIBOR, or (iii) by the competent authority under European Regulation 2016/1011 (“BMR”) for the supervision of EMMI, as administrator of the index, or (iv) by the competent national authorities designated under the BMR, or (v) by the ECB.

If the algebraic sum of the Euribor parameter value and the spread determines a negative result, the rate is still fixed at zero since the Borrower is in any event required to return the principal disbursed.
