The Rating Agency Standard & Poor's has today affirmed UniCredit SpA's 'BBB' long- and 'A2' short-term Issuer Default Rating. The rating agency believes that the impact of the full-year-2013 results on the capital position is manageable and that the increased provisioning has strengthened the balance sheet.
The agency confirmed at the same time the stand-alone credit profile ("SACP" = stand-alone rating) at 'bbb'.
The outlook remains negative.
Debt ratings have not been affected by this rating action.
The full text of S&P's' press release is available on the rating agency website www.standardandpoors.com.
