Economic value directly generated and distributed

Ansaldo STS recognizes the importance of balancing the distribution of value generated by its activities to stakeholders, the value that they have directly or indirectly contributed to generating.

By analyzing distributed economic value, Ansaldo STS studies the flow of resources directed towards its employees, suppliers, service providers, lenders, the public administration and the communities in which it is present.

The value generated by the group in 2016 amounts to about €1.36 billion, while the value withheld by the company - mainly consisting of amortization, depreciation, impairment losses and accruals to provisions for risks, along with the self-financing - is €65.1 million.

Almost €1.3 billion was distributed, and was divided among the following stakeholders as follows:

  • the largest amount, or roughly €849.6 million, relates to costs incurred to purchase materials (suppliers), services (contractors and subcontractors) and other goods;
  • approximately €332.3 million go to employees, mainly for wages, salaries, social security and pension contributions and defined contribution plans; 
  • approximately €41.6 million to the tax authorities and other local bodies for direct and indirect taxes; 
  • €37.5 million to lenders for interest and commissions, financial expense and operating exchange rate differences; 
  • €36.0 million to shareholders in the form of dividends; 
  • €0.74 million to the community in the form of gifts, donations and sponsorships (with or without publicity).
