Italian fund association will not present slate for Telecom Italia board vote

MILAN (Reuters) - Italian fund association Assogestioni said on Monday it had decided not to present a slate proposing candidates for the board of phone group Telecom Italia (TLIT.MI) ahead of a shareholder vote on May 4.

Last month eight board members nominated by top investor Vivendi (VIV.PA) resigned, triggering a full board renewal at Italy’s biggest phone group.

    The move came after activist fund Elliott proposed a shareholder vote to replace six of Vivendi-nominated board members at a separate meeting on April 24.
