A Pool of banks led by UniCredit provides EUR 320m Project Financing to EP Centrale Ostiglia S.p.A. for a new combined-cycle gas turbine unit located in Lombardy

PRESS RELEASE
18 April 2024
  The company, fully held by EP Produzione S.p.A. (100% EPH Group), has been financed by Banco BPM, BPER, DZ BANK, MUFG, SMBC Bank EU AG and UniCredit   A pool of banks led by UniCredit recently finalized a EUR 320m mini-perm project financing in favor of EP Centrale Ostiglia S.p.A., a company fully held by the shareholder EP Produzione S.p.A. and indirectly owned by the sponsor EP Power Europe a.s., 100% EPH Group.   The project implies the construction and operation of a new combined-cycle gas turbine (CCGT) unit for a total nominal capacity of 880MW, built with state-of-the-art technology.   The new unit - which has been awarded with a 15-year Capacity Market contract effective 2024 with the Italian TSO (Terna S.p.A) - will contribute to the path towards a sustainable energy transition in Italy and to the stability of the national electricity system, thanks to its highly flexible and low-emission production, compensating the intermittency of renewables and favoring the achievement of the decarbonization goals set by the Italian Integrated National Energy And Climate Plan.   The new asset, to be realized in an existing industrialized area (hence without exploiting new land), is technologically ready for the use of mix of hydrogen and natural gas, and it is also equipped with an air condenser to mitigate the impact on water natural resources, increasing the unit availability and reliability also during the more frequent dry seasons.   The innovative structured finance transaction within the energy sector was originated, set-up and coordinated by UniCredit in its role of Global Coordinator & Bookrunner, Structuring Mandated Lead Arranger, Original Lender and Hedging Bank, and underwritten also by a unique set of local and international banks as Banco BPM, BPER, DZ BANK, MUFG and SMBC Bank EU AG as Mandated Lead Arrangers, Original Lenders and Banco BPM, BPER, MUFG and SMBC Bank EU AG as Hedging Banks, with BPER also acting as Account Bank & Agent.   In addition to this project, EP Produzione is also developing another 800 MW CCGT unit, with latest H class technology, in Tavazzano and Montanaso power plant. Both projects, for a total of 1.600 MW new capacity, will introduce to the Italian energy market a new level of efficiency and flexibility within the needed programable power generation.   Legance - Avvocati Associati supported the Lenders as Legal Advisor, while PedersoliGattai as the Borrower Legal Advisor. Fichtner and Willis Towers Watson acted as Technical-Environmental and Insurance Advisors respectively. PricewaterhouseCoopers S.p.A. acted as model auditor.   Milan, 18 April 2024   Enquiries: Media Relations e-mail: MediaRelations@unicredit.eu

UniCredit expands Swift GPI to retail clients

PRESS RELEASE
18 April 2024
  Pan-European bank front runner in offering cross-border service across key geographies   UniCredit is now the first and only bank across its core markets to offer Swift GPI on international payments across each of its client segments – from retail clients up to SMEs and multinational corporates – following its recent roll-out of the free service in Austria, Italy and Germany.   Swift GPI enables banks to offer a faster, transparent, and traceable cross-border payments service, with end-to-end visibility on transactions and accurate and real-time payment information.   At UniCredit, retail clients now receive updates on the status of their international payments via a simple push notification – the latest example of the bank improving digital channels and building its business around clients.   In the payments sphere, UniCredit’s ambition is to be every European client’s first choice.   This means operating at the vanguard of industry trends, particularly in terms of how the bank looks at the client experience – allowing it to capture more payments in the process.   Raphael Barisaac, UniCredit’s Global Head of Payments & Cash Management, said: “We are keeping our clients at the centre of everything we do. This means being able to adapt and evolve rapidly alongside their needs – as evidenced here via the expansion of Swift GPI for our retail customers.”   Marianne Demarchi, Chief Executive EMEA, Swift, added: “As part of our strategy for instant and frictionless transactions, we’re working with our community to ensure both individuals, and businesses of all sizes, can benefit directly from our range of solutions, improving their overall experience when sending and receiving an international payment. We’re delighted to be working with UniCredit to bring fast, secure and completely transparent cross-border payments to more people through Swift GPI.”   The carving out of UniCredit’s Group Payments Solutions vertical last year is enabling the bank to focus and invest at scale as it expands its range of value-added services for clients of all sizes.   These decisive actions have had a material impact on the quality of UniCredit’s revenues, with 87% of the bank’s FY23 payments revenues being fee-driven.   UniCredit’s expansion of Swift GPI to retail clients also marks the latest milestone in a journey of innovation in international payments and service excellence.   As of today, the bank can deliver fully automated end to end FX conversion in more than 100 currencies – executing cross-border payments at pre-agreed wholesale spreads.   At the same time, UniCredit is also one of the early adopters of Swift’s Payment Pre-validation solution, which provides an upfront check of recipient data to remove errors before a payment is sent.   Swift is a global member owned cooperative and the world’s leading provider of secure financial messaging services, providing its community with a platform for messaging and standards for communicating, as well as offering products and services to facilitate access and integration, identification, analysis and regulatory compliance.     Milan, 18 April 2024   Contacts Media Relations E mail: mediarelations@unicredit.eu
