May 16 (Bloomberg) -- Finmeccanica SpA’s board plans to transfer some powers from Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Giuseppe Orsi to Chief Operating Officer Alessandro Pansa, newspaper la Repubblica reported, without saying where it got the information.
Pansa will take responsibility for acquisitions and strategy, while Orsi, who is the target of a bribery probe, remains in control of personnel and external relations, the newspaper said.
The board will transfer the powers after a shareholder meeting today to approve a record 2.3 billion-euro ($2.9 billion) loss for last year, Repubblica said.
