The rating agency Standard & Poor's ("S&P") has affirmed UniCredit SpA's 'BBB+/A2' long- and short-term ratings (outlook negative unchanged), although S&P assumes now a higher credit risk in the Italian economy. At the same time the "SACP" (Stand-Alone Credit Profile) has been revised to 'bbb+' as a direct consequence of S&P's changed economic assumptions.
UniCredit Leasing SpA's 'BBB+/A2' long- and short-term ratings with a negative outlook have also been affirmed.
