Turin - Milan, March 28th 2014 –  At At its meeting yesterday, the Intesa Sanpaolo Management Board approved the parent company and consolidated draft financial statements for the year ended December 31st 2013(7).


______________________

(6) This figure includes extraordinary profits of 2,558 million euro deriving from the recognition of the new shares held in the capital of the Bank of Italy, which were issued by the Central Bank following the amendments to its Statute approved by the extraordinary shareholders’ assembly of December 23rd 2013. On the basis of the relevance of both the legislative measures and the amendments to the Statute, the Intesa Sanpaolo Group deems that the new shares, into which the new capital of the Bank is divided, represent new financial instruments that are unlike those held before the reform insofar as they carry substantially different legal and economic rights. This being a unique circumstance, it has been deemed proper that the decision be supported by qualified professional opinion for the purpose of precisely defining the legal and accounting issues of the transaction. Competent authorities are still carrying out in-depth assessments concerning the application of IAS/IFRS to the transaction. The outcome may entail another categorisation of the transaction leading to the recognition of the benefit through shareholders’ equity, instead of through profit and loss, leaving total profitability unchanged. This benefit has had no impact on the Core Tier 1 ratio, having been sterilised through prudential filters. The Intesa Sanpaolo Group acknowledges that in-depth assessments are under way. However, on the grounds of opinion received, the Group has reached the aforementioned conclusions that the new shares in the capital of the Bank of Italy are financial instruments substantially different from the previous ones and therefore must be recognised at fair value through profit and loss.
(7) Methodological note on the scope of consolidation on page 19.
 

In 2013, the Group’s results reflected a challenging economic environment and the adoption of a particularly rigorous and conservative policy. The Intesa Sanpaolo Group further reinforced 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 (AQR) and stress test exercise that regulatory authorities will carry out on European Banks throughout 2014:

● additional improvement on top of an already solid capital base: further strengthening of capital ratios (already well above regulatory requirements) at December 31st 2013, net of dividends accrued in 2013. The pro-forma Basel 3 common equity ratio on a fully loaded basis increased to 12.3%(8) from 10.6% at year-end 2012, one of the highest levels of major European banks, equivalent to an excess capital of approximately eight billion euro(9)  and a capital buffer of approximately 11 billion euro ahead of the AQR(10). The Core Tier 1 ratio - excluding the benefit deriving from the stake in the Bank of Italy - increased to 11.9% from 11.2% at year-end 2012 under rules on deduction of insurance investments in force until December 31st 2012, and was 11.3% under the new computation rules(11);

● significant excess capital allowing ample strategic flexibility, also in the context of the 2014-2017 Business Plan approved yesterday: growth, payback to shareholders, virtually unlimited buffer versus any AQR exercise/other regulation;

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 88 billion euro at the end of December 2013; already compliant with Basel 3 Liquidity Coverage Ratio and Net Stable Funding Ratio requirements, well ahead of deadlines (2019 and 2018 respectively); Intesa Sanpaolo is “not addicted” to the ECB: in 2013, the three-year LTRO of 36 billion euro put in place in the 2011-2012 period was fully repaid ahead of its due date;

● current accounts and deposits up 4.5% from year-end 2012;

● strong increase in assets under management: an increase of approximately 27 billion euro in 2013;

● sustained performance in net fees and commissions: 6,149 million euro in 2013, up 12.8% versus 2012;

______________________
(8) Estimated by: applying the parameters set out under fully phased-in Basel 3 to the financial statements as at December 31st 2013; considering the total absorption of deferred tax assets (DTAs) related to goodwill realignment and the expected absorption by 2019 of DTAs on losses carried forward, the benefit deriving from the stake in the Bank of Italy (86bps), the effect of the Danish compromise (under which insurance investments are risk weighted instead of being deducted from capital, with a benefit of 13bps); and including the expected benefits from the optimisation actions on capital sources and requirements and from the absorption of sovereign risk shock (equal overall to one basis point).
(9) Compared to Basel 3 compliance level for Global SIFIs of 9.5% (4.5% Common Equity + 2.5% conservation buffer + 2.5% current maximum Global SIFI buffer).
(10) Compared to the capital adequacy threshold of 8% being applied in the AQR. The capital buffer does not include the benefit deriving from the stake in the Bank of Italy.
(11) 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.
 

● high efficiency, highlighted by the cost/income ratio of 51.3% in 2013, top level amongst European peers;

● continued aggressive reduction in structural costs: -6.3% in 2013 versus 2012, with nominal savings of 561 million euro;

● rigorous and conservative provisioning policy:
loan loss provisions of 7,131 million euro in 2013, up 51.3% compared to 2012,
- a NPL coverage ratio up to 46% at year-end 2013 from 42.7% at year-end 2012 (Italian peers average: 37% in Q4 2013), with a coverage of the doubtful loan component up to 62.5% at year-end 2013 from 60.5% at year-end 2012,
- a total NPL coverage ratio of 128%, including collateral, at year-end 2013 (137% adding also personal guarantees), with a total coverage of the doubtful loan component of 129% (137% adding also personal guarantees),
- a robust reserve buffer on performing loans, increased to 80bps at year-end 2013 from 76bps at year-end 2012 (Italian peers average: 59bps in Q4 2013);

● signs of stabilising credit trends with gross NPL inflow from performing loans of 15.6 billion euro in 2013 versus 15.4 billion euro in 2012;

● prudent criteria in the impairment test, reflecting the conservative forecasts for the medium-term scenario set out in the Group’s 2014-2017 Business Plan due to the monetary policy framework and the highly uncertain developments in the European economy in the coming years. This has led to a significant impairment of goodwill and other intangible assets of approximately 6.8 billion euro before tax (impairment of 51%) - including approximately 4.7 billion euro related to goodwill (impairment of 55%), 0.5 billion euro to brand name (21%) and 1.6 billion euro to core deposits (elimination) - and approximately 5.8 billion euro after tax. Of this amount, approximately 3.9 billion euro was posted by the Banca dei Territori division, 1.1 billion euro by the Corporate and Investment Banking division, 0.7 billion euro by the International Subsidiary Banks division, and 29 million euro by Banca Fideuram. This impairment mainly relates to non-cash based operations, and has an accounting effect only and no impact on the Group’s cash flow, liquidity, capital solidity and capital ratios or effect on its future profitability;
 

● cash dividends in line with previous year’s levels: the Management Board yesterday adopted a proposal, to be submitted at the next Ordinary Shareholders’ Meeting, regarding the distribution of approximately 822 million euro cash to be taken from reserves, paying out five euro cents on ordinary shares and on savings shares, before tax. Specifically, the proposal envisages the distribution of a total amount of 822,044,844.10 euro to be drawn on the Extraordinary Reserve, deriving from five euro cents on each of the 15,508,406,321 ordinary shares and five euro cents on each of the 932,490,561 savings shares; no distribution will be made to own shares held by the Bank at record date. This assignment of reserves shall be subject to the same tax regime as the distribution of dividends and if approved at the Shareholders’ Meeting, will start from May 22nd 2014 (with coupon presentation on May 19th and record date on May 21st). The dividend yield is 2.2% per ordinary share and 2.6% per savings share, based on the Intesa Sanpaolo stock price on March 26th 2014.

The income statement for the fourth quarter of 2013

The consolidated income statement for Q4 2013(12) recorded operating income of 3,944 million euro, down 4.9% from 4,146 million euro in Q3 2013 and down 12.2% from 4,494 million euro in Q4 2012.

Net interest income for Q4 2013 amounted to 2,038 million euro, up 0.3% from 2,031 million euro in Q3 2013 and down 6.6% from 2,181 million euro in Q4 2012.
________
(12) 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 1,113 million euro into loans and receivables and 32 million euro into financial assets available for sale; the Group also reclassified financial assets available for sale of 5,482 million euro into loans and receivables. If these reclassifications had not been made, the profits/losses on trading for the fourth quarter of 2013 would have recorded 35 million euro as positive pre-tax impact (a positive impact of 94 million euro in full-year 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 1,281 million euro as negative pre-tax direct impact at December 31st 2013 (with a positive impact of 176 million euro in the fourth quarter of 2013 and 553 million euro in full-year 2013).
 

Net fee and commission income amounted to 1,625 million euro, up 9.6% from 1,483 million euro in Q3 2013. In detail, commissions on commercial banking activities were up 6.7%, and those on management, dealing and consultancy activities (including portfolio management, distribution of insurance products, dealing and placement of securities, etc.) were up 19%. Under the latter, commissions on portfolio management were up 33.5% (an increase also due to approximately 130 million euro performance commissions), those on dealing and placement of securities were up 13.4%, and those on distribution of insurance products were up 3%. Net fee and commission income in Q4 2013 increased by 9.9% from the 1,479 million euro of Q4 2012. In detail, commissions on commercial banking activities were up 11.2%, and those on management, dealing and consultancy activities were up 20%. Under the latter, commissions on distribution of insurance products were up 30%, those on portfolio management were up 28.4% (approximately 75 million euro performance commissions were booked in Q4 2012), and those on dealing and placement of securities were down 14.1%.


Profits on trading were 70 million euro (including capital gains of 84 million euro made on the sale of the stake in Assicurazioni Generali) from 401 million euro in Q3 2013 (including capital gains of overall 193 million euro on the senior note buy-back and the exchange of own subordinated notes). Profits from customers decreased to 45 million euro from 92 million euro. Profits from capital markets and AFS financial assets amounted to 13 million euro from five million euro. Profits from proprietary trading and treasury activities decreased to 11 million euro from 295 million euro (the former including the capital gain of 84 million euro, the latter the capital gain of 193 million euro, both mentioned above). Profits from structured credit products decreased to one million euro from nine million euro. Profits on trading of 70 million euro for Q4 2013 are compared with profits of 682 million euro in Q4 2012 (which included a capital gain of 110 million euro on the exchange of own subordinated notes and 342 million euro related to the valuation of derivatives contracts mandatorily reclassified as trading). The fourth quarter of 2012 had booked profits from customers of 88 million euro, profits from capital markets and AFS financial assets of 95 million euro, profits from proprietary trading and treasury activities of 478 million euro (including the aforementioned 110 million euro capital gain and 342 million euro valuation of derivatives contracts), and profits from structured credit products of 21 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 Q4 2013 would have recorded a positive pre-tax impact of 35 million euro.

Income from insurance business amounted to 143 million euro, compared with 204 million euro in Q3 2013 and 159 million euro in Q4 2012.

Operating costs amounted to 2,202 million euro, up 7.9% versus the 2,041 million euro of Q3 2013 due to increases in administrative expenses and adjustments of 21.8% and 11.1% respectively and a decrease of 0.2% in personnel expenses. Operating costs for the quarter were down 4.1%, compared with 2,297 million euro in Q4 2012 due a decrease by 10% in personnel expenses and increases by 3.8% in administrative expenses and by 4.4% in adjustments.

As a result, operating margin amounted to 1,742 million euro, down 17.2% from 2,105 million euro in Q3 2013 and down 20.7% from 2,197 million euro in Q4 2012. The cost/income ratio was at 55.8% in Q4 2013 versus 49.2% in Q3 2013 and 51.1% in Q4 2012.

Under customer financial assets, direct deposits from banking business amounted to 372 billion euro, down 2.2% from year-end 2012 (with current accounts and deposits up 4.5%); direct deposits from insurance business and technical reserves amounted to 93 billion euro, up 14.3% from year-end 2012. Indirect customer deposits amounted to 430 billion euro, up 4% from year-end 2012. Assets under management totalled 259 billion euro, up 11.7% from year-end 2012. As for bancassurance, in 2013, new business for life policies amounted to 19 billion euro (67.4% higher than in 2012). Assets under administration and in custody amounted to 172 billion euro, down 5.8% from year-end 2012.
 
As at December 31st 2013, capital ratios were 11.9% for the Core Tier 1 ratio (year-end 2012: 11.2%), 12.8% for the Tier 1 ratio (year-end 2012: 12.1%) and 14.8% for the total capital ratio (year-end 2012: 13.6%). Capital ratios were calculated by applying the Basel 2 Foundation approach and the internal models to residential mortgages and corporate and retail SME portfolios (with floor at 85%), deducting the nominal value of the savings shares, and in accordance with regulations for insurance investment deduction in force until December 31st 2012. On the basis of the new computation of insurance investments(13), the Core Tier 1 ratio was at 11.3%, the Tier 1 ratio at 12.2% and the total capital ratio at 14.8%. The capital ratios are net of the dividend accrued in the year 2013 and do not include the benefit deriving from the stake in the Bank of Italy.

The estimated pro-forma common equity ratio for the Group on a Basel 3 fully loaded basis stands at 12.3%. It has been calculated by: applying the parameters set out under fully phased-in Basel 3 to the financial statements as at December 31st 2013; considering the total absorption of deferred tax assets (DTAs) related to the goodwill realignment and the expected absorption by 2019 of DTAs on losses carried forward, the benefit deriving from the stake in the Bank of Italy (86bps), the effect of the Danish compromise (under which insurance investments are risk weighed instead of being deducted from capital, with a benefit of 13bps); and including the expected benefits from the optimisation actions on capital sources and requirements and from the absorption of sovereign shock risk (equal to overall one basis point).

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 88 billion euro at year-end 2013,
- 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 year-end 2013,
- the Group’s refinancing operations with the ECB to optimise the cost of funding amounting to 19.5 billion euro at year-end 2013. These comprise standard open-market operations with maturities ranging from one week to three months, after the early repayment in full of the 36 billion euro borrowed under the three-year LTRO put in place in the 2011-2012 period,
- stable and well-diversified sources of funding, with approximately 80% of direct deposits from the banking business (including securities issued) generated from retail operations,
__________________________
(13) 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.

- medium/long-term funding of approximately 31 billion euro raised in 2013, which included approximately 18 billion euro retail placements. So far in 2014, approximately seven billion euro has been raised, including two billion euro retail placements and approximately 60% of 2014 wholesale bond maturities have already been covered;
- 5.15 billion euro of eurobonds, 1.75 billion euro of covered bonds, 4.75 billion dollars of US bonds placed on international markets in 2013. The total demand - approximately 85% from foreign investors - on average exceeded the issue target by over 130%. So far in 2014, 0.75 billion euro of eurobonds, 1.25 billion euro of covered bonds, 2.5 billion dollars of US bonds, 650 million CNY of Renminbi-denominated bonds have been placed on international markets (the demand - approximately 85% from foreign investors - on average exceeded the target by over 90%);
 low leverage 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 December 2013 comprising Greek bonds (issued by the central and local governments) of 34 million euro, Irish bonds of 81 million euro and Portuguese bonds of 37 million euro.
