Enel Awarded Rights on Four Wind Projects in Mexico
 
   By Marc Bisbal Arias 
 

Enel SpA (ENEL.MI) said Thursday that it has been awarded the right to sign a number of contracts in Mexico to supply energy and clean-energy certificates on four wind projects.

The value of the order was not disclosed.

The Italian company said that the total capacity of the projects is 593 megawatts.

Investments in the construction of the new facilities will come close to $700 million, in line with the investments outlined in the company's current strategic plan, it said.

The new plants--to be built in Acuna, Coahuila and Nuevo Leon--are expected to enter into operation in the first half of 2020, Enel said, and once fully operational, production of renewable energy is expected to be 2.09 terawatt hours a year.

Enel is the largest renewable-energy operator in Mexico in terms of installed capacity and project portfolio, it said.

It currently operates projects in the country with a total capacity of 728 megawatts, with 675 megawatts coming from wind and 53 megawatts from hydropower, the company said.

Unicredit and Societe Generale Securities Services to Renew Strategic Partnership
 
   By Sonia Amaral Rohter 
 

UniCredit SpA (UCG.MI) and Societe Generale Securities Services said on Thursday that they intend to renew their strategic partnership on securities services.

Unicredit signed a memorandum of understanding with SGSS, Societe Generale's (GLE.FR) Italian subsidiary, committing to extend their current service management agreement until 2026. The agreement covers custody, settlement and market-data management services and has been in place since September 2006.

"We decided to extend a long and successful partnership with SGSS to allow UniCredit to benefit from our partner's expertise in the best interest of our customers and in line with the Transform 2019 objectives," said Ranieri de Marchis, UniCredit's global co-chief operating officer.

Inflation Readings in Focus Next Week

By Toby Luckhurst

LONDON--There's a bumper week of European economic data ahead, with a number of inflation readings in focus.

On Tuesday, expect eurozone money-supply numbers, as well as a reading on the consumer climate in Germany. Earlier on Tuesday, watch too for German import prices in October, which are predicted to dip from last month's numbers.

Wednesday is the busiest day of the week, with eurozone sentiment data and French GDP that morning, followed by a preliminary reading on German inflation scheduled in the afternoon. Preliminary German November CPI numbers are seen rising marginally on a monthly and annual basis.

German and eurozone unemployment figures are expected Thursday morning, with analysts forecasting no change for both readings. Eurozone and French CPI data is also scheduled, as well as a preliminary reading on Italian CPI, with all measures predicted to rise slightly.

The European Central Bank has begun a cautious draw-down of its economic stimulus policy, and has warned that weak European inflation could affect the pace of its plan.

Finally, Friday has eurozone, German and French manufacturing purchasing managers' index data for November, with small gains forecast for all three figures. A final reading on third-quarter Italian GDP is also scheduled for Friday morning, with analysts predicting a minor improvement for growth.

Italy's Mediobanca to Acquire 69% Stake in RAM Active Investments
 
   By Pietro Lombardi 
 

Italian lender Mediobanca SpA (MB.MI) has agreed to buy a 69% stake in RAM Active Investments SA, the companies said Thursday, without disclosing the price tag of the deal.

The Swiss asset-management company has 4.9 billion Swiss francs ($4.96 billion) in assets under management.

RAM AI's founding partners, Thomas de Saint-Seine, Maxime Botti and Emmanuel Hauptmann, "will retain significant stakes in the company and will remain committed to its development for a minimum period of ten years," the companies said.

The three will also "reinvest a meaningful part of their proceeds" into RAM AI, while shareholder REYL Group will keep a 7.5% stake in the Swiss company.

The transaction is expected to be completed in the first half of 2018.

The deal should increase Mediobanca's assets under management and assets under advisement--which stood at 30 billion euros ($35.31 billion) as of June 2017--by 15% and boost its fee income by about 10%.

Banca Monte Dei Paschi's Current CEO, Chairman Among Candidates for New Board
 
   By Pietro Lombardi 
 

Banca Monte dei Paschi di Siena SpA (BMPS.MI) said Thursday that its current Chief Executive Marco Morelli and Chairman Alessandro Falciai are among the candidates running for the new board of the bank.

The two officials are on the list presented by Italy's finance ministry--which has been in control of the bank since rescuing it earlier this year, ahead of the shareholder meeting on Dec. 18, that will elect the new board.

Monte dei Paschi returned to the stock exchange late October, after a 10-month suspension. Its shares were suspended shortly after the bank--Italy's fourth-largest by assets--failed to raise sufficient fresh capital from private investors, prompting the government to step in.

The bank has since undergone a deep overhaul that included state recapitalization, the disposal of billions in bad loans, job cuts and a cap on compensation for its top executives.

Rome Prosecutor Orders Seizure of ENI Refinery Equipment
 
   By Nathan Allen 
 

ENI SpA (ENI.MI) on Wednesday said the Rome prosecutor's office had ordered the seizure of oil-product measurement devices from several of its Italian refineries and storage facilities.

The seizure forms part of a wider probe led by Italian authorities into alleged tax evasion amounting to about 10 million euros ($11.8 million).

ENI denied any wrongdoing and said it would request to continue using the equipment in order to avoid production halts at its refineries.

The state-controlled oil major operates five refineries in Italy, which in 2016 produced around 21.6 million metric tons of refined products.

Italian Cuisine Is Giving Fast-Casual a Twirl
By Jeanette Settembre 

It's spaghetti and meatballs like grandma used to make, served in the culinary equivalent of a New York minute.

Made-to-order pasta dishes such as Fettuccine Alfredo and Rigatoni Bolognese are being churned out at the speed of burrito-slinging at Chipotle. Italian food is having its fast-casual moment.

After launching upscale red-sauce restaurant Allora in Midtown last year with his father, Tim Gjonbalaj created a more casual noodle concept, ePasta, which is set to open Monday in Manhattan's Financial District.

Customers order at a marble counter in the open kitchen from a menu that features dried and fresh pastas including bowls of bowtie-shaped farfalle with broccoli rabe and Italian sausage, or penne in a spicy arrabiata sauce whipped up in minutes with a pasta cooker. The gnocchi pesto is $12; the same dish costs $23 at Allora.

It is no surprise that chefs with fine-dining backgrounds are looking to cash in on a fast-casual future. Sales at quick-service restaurants were forecast to reach $234 billion in 2017, a 5.3 percent gain over 2016's $222 billion, according to the National Restaurant Association.

In 2015, Panera Bread raked in more than any other fast-casual restaurant with $4.8 billion sales in the U.S.; Chipotle ranked No. 2 with $4.4 billion, according to food-service industry research firm Technomic Inc.

Shake Shack's Danny Meyer recently dabbled in grab-and-go Italian with his pizzeria Martina in Manhattan's East Village, which also serves meatball subs, salads and rice balls.

A number of other quick-service Italian spots are twirling up pasta, pronto.

Chef Mark Ladner, formerly of Michelin-starred Del Posto, set out to open the McDonald's of noodles, only healthier with Pasta Flyer in Greenwich Village. The space, a former Chipotle, has been transformed into a terrestrial-inspired dining room with a hanging UFO and a black-and-white mural of Rome.

Ladner leads the assembly line stirring up sauces for pasta combos such as fusilli with pesto; whole-grain rigatoni in a meat ragout; creamy Fettuccine Alfredo; and gluten-free penne. Each are priced at $7 to $8.

For $9.99, customers can get a full meal of spaghetti and miniature-sized meatballs in marinara sauce with a side salad, and a soda or sparkling water.

Sides such as the lasagna snack -- a deep-fried bar of cheesy pasta -- can be served in less than five minutes.

"We're not necessarily interested in the foodie community. We're trying to become a normal place to normal Americans who think food is just a meal," Mr. Ladner said. "We want to make stuff that's nourishing and satisfying in a way that your grandmother's cooking is."

Diners seemed to be content on a recent evening.

"The pasta and meatballs were right on the money," said 63-yer-old Philip Ashley, who lives in the neighborhood. He suggested, however, that patrons "may want slightly bigger portions."

Boiling pasta is easy, but serving it perfectly al dente, quick and consistently is the challenge. If the noodles sit out too long, they get soggy. At Pasta Flyer, dry pasta is cooked, frozen and flash-boiled.

"I get pasta a lot and I find that it's often overcooked or mushy, this was super al dente. It's excellent," Gina Zafran, 29, of the Upper West Side, said of the fusilli.

Nona's Italian food is served in a hip, pink dining room at the Sosta in the Nolita neighborhood of Manhattan. Instagram-obsessed diners hold smartphones up to the neon sign blaring "Mangiamo Baby!" above the counter, where zucchini noodles can be substituted for the carb-filled variety.

An early adopter of the grab-and-go noodle trend was boxed-pasta brand Barilla.

Casa Barilla restaurant opened in Midtown Manhattan in 2013, serving pasta, pizza and salads in a snap. The chain recently expanded to Southern California and to Dubai. Prices range from $7.95 to $12.95.

"Those all-you-can-eat pasta American-Italian places are really not what this is about," says restaurant consultant Clark Wolf.

"This is about better ingredients and better foods in the right portions that happen to be delicious. It was bound to happen. It just had to wait until fear of carbs died down and until Americans learned that there's more to making pasta than just industrial wheat."

Italy to Offer Up to EUR3.5 Bln Bonds on Nov. 29, Cancels Mid-Dec Auction

By Emese Bartha

The Italian treasury will offer up to a total of 3.5 billion euros ($4.14 billion) in 2027-dated fixed rate bonds (BTP) and 2025-dated floating rate notes (CCTeu) at an auction on Nov. 29, it said Friday.

The treasury added that it cancelled the sale of five-year fixed-rate bonds originally scheduled for the same day due to its large cash position and the consequently reduced funding needs.

The treasury also cancelled its mid-December bond auction, scheduled for Dec. 13, due to the large cash position. The cancellation of the mid-December auction is in line with previous years' practice and has been anticipated by several market analysts.

The following are details of the coming auction.

Date of auction Nov. 29, 2017 
Issue 2.05% Aug. 1, 2027 BTP 
Amount on offer EUR1.25 bln-EUR1.75 bln 
Settlement date Dec. 1, 2017
