Italeaf SpA, holding company and first Italian company builder active in the cleantech and smart innovation sectors, listed on the NASDAQ First North Growth Market of the Stockholm Stock Exchange, following the press release issued on January 16, 2020, announces that it has received today the decision of the Disciplinay Committee of Nasdaq regarding the violation of article 4.4 of the Rulebook of the Nasdaq First North Growth Market.

In particular, the Nasdaq Disciplinary Committee has decided that Italeaf’s stocks will be delisted no later than 30 September 2020. The Exchange has noted that the company has violated point 4.4 (c) of the Rulebook on three occasions, by not publishing financial reports in accordance with the terms established. In this context, the Stock Exchange considers that the violations of the Company are so serious that Italeaf’s stocks must be canceled from trading.

As part of the documental discussion between the parties, Italeaf confirmed that the Company has not published the current financial reports in accordance with the terms set out in the Rulebook.

However, the Company pointed out that it was completely transparent in its communication to the market on the various stages of the restructuring process and the development of the recovery and relaunch plan. Secondly, the delay in publishing the financial reports was, and still is, a consequence of the delay in approving the financial documents of the subsidiary algoWatt S.p.A. and the current COVID-19 outbreak. With regard to the link with the COVID-19 outbreak, the Company has decided to delay the publication of financial reports in light of ESMA’s recommendation of 11 March 2020 regarding the publication of the effects of COVID-19 on listed companies and the effects of the government’s crisis packages. Third, during its listing on the Nasdaq, the Company has otherwise managed its disclosure and, with the exception of the current violations, has acted in accordance with the Rulebook. The current violations are therefore considered by the Company to be due to extraordinary circumstances in the individual case and constitute an isolated event. For these reasons Italeaf had requested the Disciplinary Committee of Nasdaq not to remove its stocks from trading.

  • The new environmental asset put into service in Umbria, in the eco-industrial park of Nera Montoro (TR) and is authorized to treat 438,000 cubic meters per year of groundwater and 58,000 tons per year of liquid waste.
  • Plant owned by Purify Srl, a JV between algoWatt and ATP Project & Constructions, Total investment of approximately Euro 9 million

 

Italeaf SpA, holding company and first Italian company builder active in the cleantech and smart innovation sectors, listed on the NASDAQ First North Growth Market of the Stockholm Stock Exchange, announces that the subsidiary algoWatt, GreenTech Solutions company listed on Borsa Italiana’s electronic stock exchange (MTA) announces that, today has put into operation the plant Purify, a JV between algoWatt and ATP Project and Constructions Srl, owner of industrial fluid waste treatment and groundwater remediation plants in Nera Montoro (TR), Umbria.

The start-up of the platform, which involved a total investment of approximately Euro 9 million, confirms the goal of algoWatt aimed at enhancing the asset management of marginal resource recovery plants, also through the consolidation of partnerships with leading Italian and international investors in the green and circular economy sector, as envisaged in the Group’s Recovery and Relaunch Plan.

AlgoWatt‘s Chairman and CEO, Stefano Neri, said:

We put into operation an innovative plant, projected and started before the merger between TerniEnergia and Softeco, which originated algoWatt, in line with the industrial targets we had set ourselves. The commissioning of the plant completes the equipment of the green industry factory in Nera Montoro (TR) Umbria, which represents an integrated platform (liquid waste, biodigestion and composting of FORSU, treatment of end-of-life tyres) with economic-financial and strategic value. It is, in fact, an industrial area dedicated to the environmental industry, barycentric with respect to the Italian market for the recovery of resources and characterized by a strong appeal for players specializing in green and circular economy“.

The Executive Director of ATP Srl, Pierluigi Ruopoli, said:

Our partnership in the construction and subsequent management phase of a complex and articulated plant such as that of Nera Montoro, represents an important opportunity, especially in the field of enhancement and refinement of our skills. The relationship with algoWatt will allow us to introduce very relevant digital and technological innovations in plant management and to offer to the liquid waste treatment market a platform focused on environmental sustainability and operational efficiency“.

The Purify plant

The new plant platform, authorized by the Umbria Region, integrates two different treatment lines:

  • Groundwater remediation (TAF). Purify manages the groundwater treatment, in compliance with the regional requirements of the remediation project of the Nera Montoro site, in the province of Terni, for a total capacity of 438,000 cubic meters per year. The revamping involved the chemical-physical and biological plants, a complex system consisting of 48 wells for the drainage of treated water and a monitoring system consisting of 95 piezometers placed to control the water table of the Nera Montoro industrial site, for a total treatment of 50m3/h.
  • Treatment of industrial liquid waste (TRL). This is the new section dedicated to the treatment of liquid waste with a capacity of 58,000 t/year that includes two process lines: (a) biological treatment with activated sludge for the removal of nitrites, nitrates and ammoniacal nitrogen; and (b) chemical-physical treatment by flotation or evaporation, with two three-stage vacuum evaporators (2,500 litres/hour each) for the purification of water with the highest concentration of pollutants.

The competitive environment

The Purify plant platform operates in an area with high demand for the treatment of industrial liquid waste. Addressing a supra-regional context, it can provide the ideal answer for those companies that place the enhancement and correct treatment of environmental resources as a target of their activities. As regards Umbria alone – a region where no similar treatment plant exists – an analysis of the companies’ MUDs shows that demand for liquid waste treatment exceeds twice the authorised capacity of Purify. The plants operating in the neighbouring regions of Lazio, Tuscany, Marche and Abruzzo are not equipped with all the process lines of the Purify platform. The catchment area, also in consideration of the proximity of the highway exit, can extend up to a distance of 300-400 km, especially towards the south, filling a substantial plant gap in this sector of central-southern Italy. 

The revamping of the TAF plant, on the other hand, makes it possible to adjust the regulations for the reclamation of groundwater, making a significant contribution to the safety of a historic industrial area in Central Italy, previously owned by the Eni Group.

Inauguration with web conference

The plant will be inaugurated today with a web conference scheduled at 11 am CET entitled: “Circular Economy and Reclamation: an opportunity for growth in the context of the Green New Deal“, with the participation, among others, of the Undersecretary for the Environment, Roberto Morassut.

The Board of Directors of Italeaf has therefore decided to postpone the approval of the separate financial report and consolidated financial statements at December 31, 2019 until a later date to be defined and in any case by 31 May 2020.

The reasons for this postponement are mainly based on the following considerations:

  • on 29 January 2020 the Board of Directors of the subsidiary algoWatt S.p.A. (formerly TerniEnergia), the main asset of the holding company, resolved to approve the draft financial statements and the consolidated financial statements at December 31, 2019 in a period between April 21 and 24, 2020;
  • in light of the worsening of the epidemiological emergency from COVID-19, the national public authorities have postponed the shareholders’ meetings for the approval of the financial statements to June 30, 2020 for the companies that wish to benefit from it and the Board of Directors deemed it appropriate to make use of this postponement, also in view of the preparation of the consolidated financial statements and the ongoing restructuring process.
