 INTESA SANPAOLO: GENERAL MANAGER GAETANO MICCICHE’ AND CHIEF RISK OFFICER BRUNO PICCA LEAVE MANAGEMENT POSITIONS TO TAKE UP TOP OFFICES WITHIN THE GROUP

Turin - Milan, 27 April 2016 – Intesa Sanpaolo announces that General Manager Gaetano Miccichè, Head of the Corporate and Investment Banking Division, and Bruno Picca, Chief Risk Officer – both executive members of the Management Board the mandate of which has just come to an end – have left their management positions at the Bank to take up top offices within the Group. This is also in relation to the appointment, today, of the Board of Directors, following the adoption of the one-tier governance system in which the managing director is the only executive member on the Board.

Intesa Sanpaolo will continue to benefit from their valuable expertise. Both remain within the Group: Gaetano Miccichè as Chairman of Banca IMI and Bruno Picca as a Board Director of Intesa Sanpaolo.

Under Gaetano Miccichè’s guidance, the Corporate and Investment Banking Division has excelled in its level of performance and market position, both in Italy and internationally, even amid extremely unfavourable market conditions. In 2015, the Division generated a pre-tax income of about €2 billion and achieved a domestic market share in corporate banking above 30%, enjoying a clear-cut leadership.

Under Bruno Picca, the Group’s risk management function has emerged as a benchmark within the European banking sector, in a period in which the regulatory framework has been marked by increasing complexity and relevance in regard to appropriate and effective management of the banking business.

Commenting, Carlo Messina said “I thank Gaetano Miccichè and Bruno Picca for their extraordinary contribution over the many years that have marked the Bank’s significant growth. I am certain I can count on their solid commitment to face the significant challenges that lie ahead of the Group”.

The communication attached to this press release shows the details relating to their leaving the respective management positions at the Bank. It has been prepared in accordance with the provisions of the Supervisory and Control Authorities. I
