| | ?2.0 BN GROUP NET PROFIT TARGET 2014 DELIVERED DESPITE THE CHALLENGING ENVIRONMENT 12 EUROCENT EXPECTED SCRIP DIVIDEND PER SHARE (+20.0%) WITH A 35% PAY-OUT RATIO CET1 RATIO TRANSITIONAL AT 10.41% AND FULLY LOADED AT 10.02% IMPROVING GROUP NET INTEREST INCOME +1.1% FY/FY AND NET FEES +2.9% FY/FY STRONG FOCUS ON COST DISCIPLINE WITH GROUP OPERATING EXPENSES DOWN BY 2.9% FY/FY GROUP ASSET QUALITY CONTINUED IMPROVEMENT, WITH IMPAIRED LOANS ALMOST FLAT THANKS TO LOWER INFLOWS FROM PERFORMING. STRONG COVERAGE RATIO AT 51.3% COMMERCIAL BANK ITALY NET PROFIT AT ?2.1 BN (+46.7% FY/FY) AND ROAC AT 29.3% WITH ?13.2 BN NEW MEDIUM-LONG TERM LOANS GRANTED (+64.0% FY/FY) CEE & POLAND KEY CONTRIBUTORS TO GROUP RESULTS WITH ?1.4 BN NET PROFIT IN FY14 NON-CORE GROSS LOANS DOWN AHEAD OF TARGET AT ?75.2 BN (-?10.3 BN SINCE DECEMBER 2013) Group net profit at ?2.0 bn in FY14 in line with target. Annualised RoTE at 4.9%. CET1 ratio transitional at 10.41% and fully loaded at 10.02% . Tier 1 ratio at 11.26%2 thanks to two
issuances of Additional Tier 1 instruments amounting to ?1.9 bn. Total capital ratio transitional at 13.63%2 and leverage ratio on a transitional basis at 4.9% and on a fully loaded basis at 4.5% . UniCredit has taken the conservative approach of excluding all amortizing Tier 2 instruments issued post December 2011 from its total capital ratios and has already prepared a plan to replace them with instruments in line with CRR regulation. Group asset quality continues to stabilize with gross impaired loans almost flat thanks to significantly lower inflows from performing in FY14. Improvement in LLP at ?4.3 bn achieving a very healthy coverage ratio on impaired loans at 51.3% (up 30bps Q/Q and flat Y/Y excluding disposals), the highest among Italian banks and in line with the best European peers. UniCredit expects impaired loans to have peaked in 2014 and a downward trend in 2015 is foreseeable both for total amounts and for gross impaired loan ratio. The Core Bank posts a net profit of ?3.8 bn in FY14
supported by net interest income growth (+3.4% FY/FY) and net fees and commissions (+4.3% FY/FY) as well as the important progression in cost savings (-2.9% FY/FY). All divisions positively contributed to the Core Bank?s result. Commercial Bank Italy confirms its role as the largest contributor, followed by CEE & Poland and CIB. In Commercial Bank Italy new medium-long term lending remains strong with ?4.6 bn granted in 4Q14 for a total of ?13.2 bn in FY14 (+64.0% FY/FY), higher than ?11.1 bn run offs, mainly driven by household mortgages (+111.6% FY/FY) and corporate loans (+104.9% FY/FY). To date, almost the full amount of TLTRO (?7.8 bn) has been redeployed to corporates and SMEs in Italy. Non-Core portfolio run-down ahead of target with gross loans at ?75.2 bn (-?10.3 bn since December 2013). The Board of Directors of UniCredit approved FY14 preliminary results in February 11th. Federico Ghizzoni, CEO of UniCredit commented: ?In 2014, despite the extremely difficult economic context, we maintained our
commitment to deliver a net profit of ?2 bn. We have successfully completed the turnaround in Italy and we have been supporting the economies in all countries where the Group is present. We considerably increased our lending to households and managed savings as well as supporting our corporate clients and their expansion in international markets. We are one of the most solid European commercial banks and the ongoing progress of our Strategic Plan is bearing its fruits. We confirm our strategic guidelines in a macro-economic environment which is showing some first positive signs on the wave of the announcement of ECB actions?. 4Q14 KEY FINANCIAL DATA GROUP ?

UNICREDIT GROUP ? 4Q14 AND FY14 HIGHLIGHTS Net profit at ?170.4 m in 4Q14, leading to a FY14 result of ?2.0 bn in line with target and an to annualised RoTE at 4.9%. Total assets decrease to ?844.2 bn
(-?11.6 bn Q/Q) mainly driven by a decrease in loans to banks (-?14.6 bn Q/Q) and assets classified as held for sale (-?4.7 bn Q/Q, mainly due to the sale of DAB), partially counterbalanced by an increase in financial assets held for trading (+?8.2 bn Q/Q) boosted by lower interest rates and FX volatility. RWA/Total assets ratio stands at 48.5% with RWA increasing up to ?409.2 bn in compliance with CRR regulatory requirements impacting the credit component. Tangible equity decreases to ?43.8 bn (-?2.1 bn Q/Q) due to the impact of valuation reserves. Funding gap further shrinking to ?15.6 bn (improving by ?7.7 bn Q/Q) and reaching its lowest level over the last two years. Asset quality dynamic continues to improve, with gross impaired loans broadly stable at ?84.4 bn (+1.1% Q/Q, +0.9% Y/Y) and a higher coverage ratio of 51.3%. NPL slightly up at ?52.1 bn (+3.0% Q/Q) with coverage ratio increasing to 62.2% (+38bps Q/Q). Other impaired loans are down to ?32.2 bn (-2.0% Q/Q) thanks to lower inflows from
performing. In Italy, asset quality continues to experience a positive progress. As of end of November 2014, the annual growth rate of impaired loans of UniCredit S.p.A. was approximately 50% lower than the Italian banking system (ABI sample). CET1 ratio transitional stands at 10.41% and CET1 ratio fully loaded at 10.02% at the end of 2014 increasing of 66bps FY/FY, with the main contribution from net profit 2014 (+46bps), Fineco?s IPO and DAB (+24bps) and scrip dividend 2013 (+10bps), partially compensated by the negative effect in reserves and other items (-14bps). Tier 1 ratio and total capital ratio transitional stand at 11.26% and 13.63% respectively. Leverage ratio Basel 3 stands at 4.9% on a transitional basis and at 4.5% on a fully loaded basis, confirming the solidity of UniCredit?s balance sheet. Funding plan 2015 executed at 10% as of today for about ?2.6 bn. TLTRO take-up, in September and December ECB auctions, amounts to ?10.1 bn . Redeployment plan on track with almost the full amount (?7.8
bn) granted to corporates and SMEs in Italy. Further take-up during the coming six auctions are currently being evaluated. To date, UniCredit has repaid ?24.9 bn of LTRO and the remainder ?1.2 bn will be reimbursed within 1Q15. CORE BANK ? 4Q14 AND FY14 RESULTS Net profit at ?867.5 m (-21.3% Q/Q) leading to a net profit of ?3.8 bn in FY14 and to a RoAC of 10.8%. Main contributors to 4Q14 net profit are Commercial Bank Italy with ?459.0 m and 24.9% RoAC, CEE & Poland with ?212.0 m and 9.2% RoAC and CIB with ?399.1 m and 21.1% RoAC. Net operating profit up to ?1.4 bn (-28.7% Q/Q) supported by a strong cost discipline partially offsetting pressure on revenues and higher LLP. Net operating profit amounting to ?6.8 bn in FY14 (+29.9% FY/FY). Revenues amount to ?5.5 bn in 4Q14 (+1.0% Q/Q, -2.1% Y/Y) and to ?22.2 bn in FY14 (-2.0% FY/FY). Key contributors to 4Q14 revenues are Commercial Bank Italy with ?2.0 bn (+0.9% Q/Q, +4.2% Y/Y), CEE & Poland with over ?1.3 bn despite FX impacts (-8.2% Q/Q and -12.3% Y/Y at
constant FX) and CIB with ?1.0 bn (+27.1% Q/Q, -2.6% Y/Y). Net interest income stands at ?3.1 bn in 4Q14 (-0.9% Q/Q, -0.3% Y/Y) exceeding ?12 bn in FY14 (+3.4% FY/FY) thanks to the re-pricing of liabilities which more than offset volume dynamics of loans and deposits and to the decrease in market rates during the year. Customer loans broadly stable at ?423.2 bn (+0.5% Q/Q), with commercial loans slightly increasing (+0.4% Q/Q) despite FX impacts affecting CEE & Poland, where loans increased by 6.4% Q/Q at constant FX. Institutional and market counterparts up at ?38.2 bn (+2.3% Q/Q). New medium-long term lending flows in Commercial Bank Italy confirm the positive trend registered in the past quarters, with ?4.6 bn new loans granted in 4Q14 (+64.9% Q/Q, +93.4% Y/Y). Total new lending in FY14 reached ?13.2 bn (+64.0% FY/FY), higher than ?11.1 bn run-offs, driven by household mortgages (+111.6% FY/FY) and corporate loans (+104.9% FY/FY). Direct funding increased to ?452.6 bn (+1.8% Q/Q) with commercial deposits
growing (+2.8% Q/Q) despite FX impact affecting CEE & Poland, where deposits increased by 12.0% Q/Q at constant FX. Institutional and market counterparts up to ?56.5 bn (+1.9% Q/Q). Fees and commissions amount to ?1.8 bn in 4Q14 (+1.5% Q/Q, +2.7% Y/Y), equal to ?7.4 bn in FY14 (+4.3% FY/FY) supported in particular by investment services fees (+9.5% FY/FY). Dividends and other income land at ?305.6 m (+50.5% Q/Q, +42.2% Y/Y), almost ?1 bn in FY14 decreasing by -18.5% FY/FY mainly related to the sale of Yapi Kredi Sigorta occurred in 3Q13. Trading income to ?340 m (-12.3% Q/Q, -42.5% Y/Y) affected by currencies devaluation and lower volatility. Total costs at ?3.4 bn (+3.6% Q/Q, -5.9% Y/Y) demonstrating high efficiency in managing expenses, with total cost reduced to ?13.2 bn in 2014 (-2.9% FY/FY) and to a cost income ratio of 59.7% in FY14, in line with the Group?s cost reduction targets. In FY14, the number of branches decreased by 466 units (-5.8% FY/FY, excluding Yapi Kredi) and the number of FTE decreased
by c. -3,000 (-2.3% FY/FY). Loan loss provisions (LLP) at ?754.3 m in 4Q14, compared to ?254.4 m in 3Q14 which was affected by positive one-offs. LLP reach ?2.1 bn in FY14 (-43.2% FY/FY) leading to a cost of risk of 50bps. NON-CORE ? 4Q14 AND FY14 RESULTS Gross customer loans shrunk to ?75.2 bn on a pro-forma basis (-?10.3 bn since December 2013) ahead of target, of which c. 25% performing and c. 75% impaired loans. On a yearly basis, the stock of gross customer loans decreases mainly thanks to the reduction of exposures (-?2.8 bn), distressed asset disposals (c. -?2.5 bn) and transfer of performing loans back to Core Bank (-?3.1 bn ). Gross impaired loans remain broadly flat in 4Q14 (+0.6% Q/Q, -1.7% Y/Y) with a higher coverage ratio at 52.9%. NPL amount to ?37.6 bn slightly up Q/Q mainly due to a natural migration of an ageing portfolio. NPL coverage ratio strengthening at 62.7%. Net result strongly improving in 2014 and equal to -?697 m in 4Q14 and -?1,7 bn in FY14 (-73.3% FY/FY). DIVISIONAL HIGHLIGHTS ?
4Q14 AND FY14 RESULTS Commercial Bank Italy is the top contributor among divisions for 2014 with a net profit of ?2.1 bn (+47% FY/FY) and 29.3% RoAC in FY14. The excellent trend registered by Commercial Bank Italy supported by a sustainable revenue generation (+6.3% FY/FY) and continuous cost reduction (-3.9% FY/FY) confirms a strong recovery in our domestic operations. Operating performance has significantly improved in the year, demonstrating that the turnaround of UniCredit?s domestic operations is now completed and that Italy is now consistently delivering a stable flow of profits quarter after quarter. CEE & Poland post a net profit of ?1.4 bn, despite the FX devaluation and the challenging geopolitical and macroeconomic environment in Russia and Ukraine. Revenue reduction (at ?5.7 bn in FY14), driven by lower trading income mainly due to Rouble devaluation, is compensated by a very efficient cost management with operating cost down (-0.8% FY/FY). CIB posts strong results sustained by sound client flows
and synergies across the product lines. This is also reflected by UniCredit?s strong league table positions. In particular, ranking #3 in all EMEA Bonds in EUR confirms CIB?s leading position in supporting large corporate clients to directly access the capital markets. With a net profit of ?1.3 bn (+21.9% FY/FY), RoAC at 18.2% and cost income ratio at 46.1% in FY14, the division confirms its efficiency. RWA reduced at ?67.5 bn (-3.9% Q/Q, -9.5% FY/FY). RATINGS S&P lowered Italy?s long-term and short-term ratings to ?BBB-?/?A-3? in December 5th, 2014 and subsequently took the same rating action in December 18th, 2014 on UniCredit S.p.A.. The outlook is now stable. Moody?s in September 9th 2014 proposed new rating criteria for banks which could have an impact on the ratings. The negative outlook was assigned in May 29th when Moody?s changed the outlook on 82 European banks as the systemic support assumptions are being reviewed. Fitch?s ratings were confirmed in May 13th at ?BBB+?/?F2? with the existing
negative outlook. ASSET QUALITY REVIEW OUTCOME FOLLOWING CONSOB REQUEST Asset Quality Review (AQR). It results in three main elements: i) the Credit File Review (CFR), ii) the Projection of Findings and iii) the Collective Provisions. UniCredit analysed c. 3.600 files subject to CFR and, for the countries for which ECB indicated the need for additional provisions (Italy, Austria and CEE), higher LLP than requested were booked in FY14 (?482.9 m). In Germany, where the CFR determined an overall adequacy of December 2013 provisions (requested net release of ?2.7 m), releases were quantified in the amount of ?134.0 m as result of the improved borrower?s conditions and the closing of relevant files without losses in 2014. The second element of AQR concerns the Projection at portfolio level of Findings based on a prudential approach that, by its own nature, cannot be considered as specific quantitative requests of additional provisions at single customer level. Moreover it is important to highlight that the
impairment triggers used during the AQR exercise are already largely included in UniCredit credit monitoring activity and hence in the classification of the credit exposures of the Group. The third element of the AQR concerns Collective Provisions based on the ECB model which takes into account ECB assumptions. UniCredit, on the basis of its internal models, deems the provisions already in place adequate to cover the incurred losses for the entire portfolio. As such, UniCredit confirms its current approach for the preparation of 2014 Consolidated Financial Statements. Finally, the impact of valuation differences as far as level-3 fair value assets are concerned was already registered in 2Q14. Attached are the Group?s consolidated income statement and balance sheet, the Group?s staff and branches, the Group?s EPS evolution, and the Core and Non-Core consolidated income statements. All figures refer both to the full year 2014 and to the quarterly results. The final approval of UniCredit Consolidated Financial
Statements will take place next 12th March, date that qualifies as date of authorization for issue according to IAS 10 with reference to potential events after the reporting period.
