The 2022 financial statements of Alba Servizi Aerotrasporti (Asa), controlled by Fininvest, in fact closed with a loss of over 5.7 million euros, much worse than the deficit of 3.9 million the year before. The deficit was fully covered by the shareholders’ meeting held on 27 April last through the use of 6 million paid by Fininvest in capital account, gone for 305 thousand to settle a previous debt.
