Turin - Milan, November 13th 2013 –  At its meeting today, the Intesa Sanpaolo Management Board approved the consolidated interim statement as at September 30th 2013 (2).

In the first nine months of 2013, the Group’s results reflected a challenging economic environment and the adoption of a particularly rigorous and conservative stance aimed at further reinforcing a rock solid balance sheet. Specifically, the Group remained focused on further strengthening provisions, even though there have been signs of stabilisation in credit trends, ahead of the upcoming asset quality review and stress test exercise that regulatory authorities will carry out on European Banks:

● additional improvement on top of an already solid capital base: further strengthening of capital ratios (already well above regulatory requirements) at September 30th 2013, net of dividends accrued in the first nine months of 2013. The pro-forma Basel 3 common equity ratio on a fully loaded basis increased to 11.2%(3) from 10.6% at year-end 2012, one of the highest levels of major European banks, and would reach 11.5% including the effect of the so-called Danish compromise, assuming insurance investments were risk weighted instead of being deducted from capital. The Core Tier 1 ratio increased to 12.1% from 11.2% at year-end 2012 under rules on deduction of insurance investments in force until December 31st 2012; the Core Tier 1 ratio was at 11.5% at end of September under the new computation rules of insurance investments(4);

strong liquidity position and funding capability: liquid assets of 124 billion euro and large availability of unencumbered eligible assets with Central Banks, corresponding to liquidity of 92 billion euro at the end of September 2013; already compliant with Basel 3 Liquidity Coverage Ratio and Net Stable Funding Ratio requirements, well ahead of deadlines (2019 and 2018 respectively);

● current accounts and deposits up 5.3% from year-end 2012;

● positive results from all business units;

● solid and increasing contribution from Wealth Management: 1,264 million euro pre-tax income in 9M 2013 (+20.7% versus 9M 2012), of which 220 million euro from Private Banking (+25.5% versus 9M 2012), 503 million euro from Insurance (+6.1%), 176 million euro from Eurizon Capital (+57.1%) and 365 million euro from Banca Fideuram(5) (+27.6%);

● strong increase in assets under management: an increase of approximately 19 billion euro in the first nine months of 2013;

● sustained performance in net fees and commissions: 4,524 million euro in 9M 2013, up 13.9% versus 9M 2012;

● high efficiency, highlighted by the cost/income ratio of 49.8% in 9M 2013, top level amongst European peers;

● continued aggressive reduction in structural costs: -7% in 9M 2013 versus 9M 2012, with  nominal savings of 466 million euro;

 

______________________
(3) Estimated applying the parameters set out under fully phased-in Basel 3 to the financial statements as at September 30th 2013, considering the total absorption of deferred tax assets (DTAs) related to goodwill realignment and the expected absorption before 2019 of DTAs on losses carried forward, and including the expected benefits from the optimisation actions on capital sources and requirements and from the absorption of sovereign risk shock.
(4) Until year-end 2012, Basel 2 transitional regulations applied by the Bank of Italy allowed banks to deduct their insurance investments, made prior to July 20th 2006, from their total regulatory capital. Effective January 1st 2013, this no longer applies and banks are now required to deduct 50% of these investments from Tier 1 and 50% from Tier 2.
(5) Including Fideuram Vita.
 
● rigorous and conservative provisioning policy:
loan loss provisions of 4,031 million euro in 9M 2013, up 23.9% compared to 9M 2012,
- a coverage ratio of non-performing loans up to 44.5% in Q3 2013 from 44.2% in Q2 2013 (Italian peers average: 34.3% in Q2 2013), with a coverage ratio of the doubtful loan component at 61% (Italian peers average: 48.2% in Q2 2013),
- a strong reserve buffer on performing loans, increased to 79bps from 76bps in Q2 2013, up a further 25 million euro in Q3 to 2,413 million euro, corresponding to approximately a further 100 million euro considering a flat coverage ratio (Italian peers average: 54 basis points in Q2 2013);

● signs of stabilising credit trends with gross NPL inflow from performing loans of 10.8 billion euro in 9M 2013, down from 11.2 billion euro in the same period last year; gross NPL inflow of 3.7 billion euro in Q3, compared with 3.6 billion euro in Q2 2013 and 3.7 billion euro in Q3 2012;

● continued commitment to supporting the Italian economy, with facilities granted of approximately 420 billion euro, which correspond to nearly one third of the GDP; two thirds of these facilities are made up of credit lines to households and small and medium-sized businesses. Medium and long-term loans of approximately 15 billion euro were underwritten in favour of households and small and medium-sized businesses in the first nine months of 2013, up 2.7% compared to the same period last year;

● new Business Plan to be fully developed by spring 2014, involving the 94,000 Group people, and focused on value creation through achieving, in the medium term, a return above the cost of capital both at the Group level and for each business unit;

● action plan for the Banca dei Territori division already approved - given the importance of the division to the Group’s results, also  in view of the new Business Plan - and developed in cooperation with the seven Regional Managers and the Headquarter structures of the division. The key pillar of the action plan is simplification, and several initiatives set forth in the plan are already under way concerning:
- Headquarters of the division: reduction in the number of direct reports to the head of the Division, from 22 to six (excluding the seven Regional Managers),
- Network: greater empowerment for the seven Regional Managers now acting as “General Managers on the ground”, and a reduction in the approximately 300 support function units to approximately 100, focusing the activities of so-called Areas, into which the seven Regions are broken down (with two to six Areas for each Region), on commercial activities and reallocating freed-up resources to servicing clients,
- branch footprint: closures of approximately 1,300 branches, of which approximately 900 have already been closed, in cities with the highest Group branch density, in order to shrink the Italian network down to a total number of approximately 3,800 branches by June 2014; 500 branches open until 8 pm, half of which also open at lunch time, and on Saturday mornings; more than 700 patented advisors for out-of-the-branch advisory services for investment products (2,000 advisors in the role by 2014).
A streamlining process has also been decided upon with respect to the legal entities within the division, in order to:
significantly lower the number of the 16 existing local banks,
consolidate the seven product factories currently operating in industrial credit, leasing and factoring, into just two.
 
The income statement for the third quarter of 2013

The consolidated income statement for Q3 2013(6) recorded operating income of 4,146 million euro, up 1.5% from 4,086 million euro in Q2 2013 and down 6.7% from 4,443 million euro in Q3 2012.

________
(6) During the preparation of the interim statement at September 30th 2008, in the wake of the global financial crisis, certain amendments to international accounting standards were introduced and adopted by the European Commission. In short, in accordance with these amendments it is possible to reclassify - in specific circumstances considered to be rare - unquoted financial instruments, or no longer quoted, in an active market and no longer held for trading or available for sale: in particular, out of the category “fair value through profit and loss” into the categories “available-for-sale” or the “held-to-maturity” or “loans and receivables”, and out of the category “available-for-sale” into the category “loans and receivables”. The Group, largely basing on the prices at July 1st 2008, reclassified financial assets held for trading of 1,204 million euro into loans and receivables and 33 million euro into financial assets available for sale; the Group also reclassified financial assets available for sale of 5,686 million euro into loans and receivables. If these reclassifications had not been made, the profits/losses on trading for the third quarter of 2013 would have recorded 19 million euro as positive pre-tax impact (a positive impact of 59 million euro in the first nine months of 2013, a positive impact of 135 million euro in full-year 2012, a negative impact of 11 million euro in full-year 2011, a positive impact of 92 million euro in full-year 2010 and of 72 million euro in full-year 2009, and a negative impact of 459 million euro in full-year 2008) and the shareholders’ equity would have included 1,457 million euro as negative pre-tax direct impact at September 30th 2013 (with a positive impact of 51 million euro in the third quarter of 2013 and 377 million euro in the first nine months of 2013).
 
Profits on trading were 401 million euro (including capital gains of 106 million euro on a senior note buy-back and 87 million euro on an exchange of own subordinated notes) compared with 235 million euro recorded in Q2 2013. Profits from customers increased to 92 million euro from 87 million euro. Profits from capital markets and AFS financial assets were unchanged at five million euro. Profits from proprietary trading and treasury activities increased to 295 million euro (including aforementioned capital gains of 193 million euro) from 106 million euro. Profits from structured credit products decreased to nine million euro from 37 million euro. Profits on trading of 401 million euro for Q3 2013 are compared with profits of 623 million euro in Q3 2012. The corresponding quarter of last year included a capital gain of 327 million euro on the buy-back of subordinated and senior notes, and recorded profits from customers of 66 million euro, profits from capital markets and AFS financial assets of 66 million euro, profits from proprietary trading and treasury activities of 441 million euro (including the aforementioned 327 million euro capital gain), and profits from structured credit products of 50 million euro. Without the IAS reclassification of financial assets held for trading into loans and receivables and financial assets available for sale made in past years, profits on trading in Q3 2013 would have recorded a positive pre-tax impact of 19 million euro.

Income from insurance business amounted to 204 million euro, compared with 218 million euro in Q2 2013 and 216 million euro in Q3 2012.

Operating costs increased to 2,041 million euro, up 1.4% versus the 2,013 million euro of Q2 2013 as a result of increases in personnel expenses and adjustments of 4.2% and 1.2% respectively and a decrease of 3.2% in administrative expenses. Operating costs for the quarter were down by 5.8%, compared with 2,166 million euro in Q3 2012 due to decreases by 7% in personnel expenses and 6.3% in administrative expenses, and a 6.9% increase in adjustments.

As a result, operating margin amounted to 2,105 million euro, up 1.5% from 2,073 million euro in Q2 2013 and down 7.6% from 2,277 million euro in Q3 2012. The cost/income ratio was at 49.2% in Q3 2013 versus 49.3% in Q2 2013 and 48.8% in Q3 2012.

(7) Until year-end 2012, Basel 2 transitional regulations applied by the Bank of Italy allowed banks to deduct their insurance investments, made prior to July 20th 2006, from their total regulatory capital. Effective January 1st 2013, this no longer applies and banks are now required to deduct 50% of these investments from Tier 1 and 50% from Tier 2.

According to existing available information, the estimated pro-forma common equity ratio for the Group on a Basel 3 fully loaded basis stands at 11.2% - calculated by applying the parameters set out under fully phased-in Basel 3 to the financial statements as at September 30th 2013 and considering the total absorption of deferred tax assets (DTAs) related to the goodwill realignment and the expected absorption before 2019 of DTAs on losses carried forward - with impact on the capital ratios comprising:
- 0.8 billion euro in total deductions from common equity assuming that the equity investment in the Bank of Italy is deducted,
- an additional 11.7 billion euro of RWAs due to DTAs and investments in banks, financial entities and insurance companies which are below the deduction limit,
- an additional 2.1 billion euro of RWAs due to DTAs included in risks weighted at 100% (related to loan adjustments), and
- a reduction of 1.8 billion euro in RWAs due to the regulatory impact on risks.
The estimated total impact of the above on the Core Tier 1 ratio is approximately 75 basis points (the actual impact is subject to the implementation of relevant regulations). The impact is reduced to approximately 30 basis points considering the expected benefits from the optimisation actions on capital sources and requirements and from the absorption of sovereign risk shock. There would be nearly no impact, hence a pro-forma common equity ratio at 11.5%, including the effect of the Danish compromise, that is if insurance investments were risk weighted instead of being deducted from capital.

Thanks to the strategic decisions taken, Intesa Sanpaolo has confirmed its position as one of the most solid international banking Groups. In addition to the asset quality and level of capital ratios commented on above, the Group has continued to build on the following key strengths:
● a robust liquidity profile with
- large availability of unencumbered eligible assets with Central Banks (including eligible assets received as collateral and excluding eligible assets currently used as collateral), corresponding to liquidity of 92 billion euro at the end of September this year,
- high level of liquid assets (made up of eligible assets available - excluding eligible assets received as collateral - and eligible assets currently used as collateral) equal to 124 billion euro at the end of September this year,
- the Group’s refinancing operations with the ECB to optimise the cost of funding currently amounting to 21 billion euro, entirely made up of three-year LTRO, after the early payback of 12 billion euro in June 2013 and a further payback of 3 billion euro in October and November 2013 with no impact on the Group’s liquidity;
- stable and well-diversified sources of funding, with approximately 80% of direct deposits from the banking business (including securities issued) generated from retail operations,
- medium/long-term funding of approximately 25 billion euro raised so far in 2013, of which approximately 15 billion euro were retail placements, in addition to pre-funding of five billion euro made in 2012. The entire medium/long-term wholesale bonds maturing throughout 2013 have already been refinanced;
- 2.65 billion euro of eurobonds, 1.75 billion euro of covered bonds and 4.75 billion dollars of US bonds placed on international markets. The total demand - approximately 90% from foreign investors – on average exceeded the issuance target by over 150%;
● low leverage and an adequate capital base with
- much lower leverage and one of the best ratios of tangible net shareholders’ equity to tangible assets amongst major European banking groups,
● a low risk profile with
- the Group’s securities portfolio at the end of September 2013 comprising Greek bonds (issued by the central and local governments) of 36 million euro, Irish bonds of 101 million euro and Portuguese bonds of 175 million euro.

The outlook for 2013

In the fourth quarter of 2013, the Intesa Sanpaolo Group will continue to prioritise the delivery of sustainable results. Attention will be focused on profitability targets as well as on continued actions aimed at strengthening the capital base and further improving the profile of risk and liquidity.

The Group’s efficiency and productivity will be constantly addressed. Repricing actions will make it possible to partially limit the impact of an expected negative environment on market rates. Strict cost containment actions will counteract the effects of automatic pay increases and inflation. The cost of credit will remain at a high level.
