Ex-divs to have negligible impact on FTSE 100 on Feb. 6

    MILAN, Feb 3 (Reuters) - The following FTSE 100 company will go
ex-dividend on Thursday, after which investors will no longer qualify for the
latest dividend payout.  
    According to Reuters calculations at current market prices, the effect of
the resulting adjustment to prices by market-makers would have a very marginal
impact on the index.
