Rosneft reaches for Pirelli – but the power stays with Marco Tronchetti Provera

21st March 2014 | 0 Comments

Working on a share price of €12, which translates into a market capitalisation of €5.8 billion, Pirelli boss Marco Tronchetti Provera has arranged the sale of 13 per cent of all Pirelli shares to a majority state-owned Russian energy giant.
