Telecom Italia SpA's (TIT.MI) Infrastrutture Wireless Italiane SpA (INW.MI), or Inwit, said Thursday that its shareholders have approved the company's merger with Vodafone Group PLC (VOD.LN)'s Italian tower unit.

Inwit said its shareholders approved the distribution of an extraordinary dividend of 0.5936 euros ($0.66) per ordinary share, as well as the appointment of Piergiorgio Peluso and Carlo Nardello as non-executive directors through the end of 2020.

Mr. Peluso was also appointed chairman of the company without executive powers by the company's board of directors, which met after the shareholders' meeting, Inwit said.
