(1) Figures updated to January 31, 2014.
In 2013, the world’s macroeconomic systems expanded at a relatively moderate pace, with variations depending on geographical area.
The economy of the United States strengthened substantially. The improvement enabled the Federal Reserve to taper its securities purchases without increasing volatility on the financial markets.
In the emerging countries, economic growth differed considerably: rapid in China and modest in the other developing economies (notably in Brazil and Russia).
The euro area saw its economy begin a weak recovery, with enduring signs of fragility.
For Italy, 2013 ended with a further contraction in GDP.
However, in the 3rd Quarter of the year the decline in GDP under way since the summer of 2011 came to an end.
The general improvement in the advanced economies fostered a narrowing of risk premiums in both public- and private- sector debt markets and spurred a rise in the financial markets. The strains on the sovereign debt of the southern European countries eased significantly over the course of 2013.
The main European stock indices closed 2013 with substantial gains. The FTSE Italia All Share index in Italy ended the year with a gain of 18%.
In this context share prices in the European utilities segment rose more moderately, posting a gain of about 7% with significant differences in the performance of the shares making up the index (which ranged from a gain of more than 80% by EDF to a loss of about 15% by RWE).
As regards Enel shares, the year ended with the stock price virtually unchanged from the end of the previous year at €3.174, up 1% on the end of 2012. The decline in the price over the first nine months of 2013 was entirely reversed in the final quarter of the year.
On June 27, 2013, Enel paid off the dividend on 2012 profits of €0.15 per share.
At December 31, 2013 the Ministry for the Economy and Finance held 31.2% of Enel, while institutional investors 41.9% and individual investors the remaining 26.9%.
