Extension of the offering period

Considering the positive outcome of the Offer UniCredit has decided to extend the Offering Period until, and including, 15 May 2015 at 4.00 pm. Therefore, the holders of the Existing Notes may also tender their notes under the Offer after 30 April 2015, on each Business Day included in the period between, and including, 4 May 2015 at 8.30 am and 15 May 2015 at 4.00 pm, subject to early closing, or further extension, or reopening of the Offer (the "Extended Offering Period").

The Existing Notes tendered under the Offer during the Extended Offering Period will be repurchased by the Offeror pursuant to the terms and conditions set forth in the tender offer memorandum dated 13 April 2015 and available on the Offeror's website www.unicreditgroup.eu/repurchasesubordinatednotes (the "Tender Offer Memorandum"), as supplemented and/or amended, as the case may be, by the provisions of this press release.

The applications received during the Extended Offering Period shall be submitted according to the procedures set forth in the Tender Offer Memorandum, in view of the extension of the Offering Period and of the provisions referred to in this press release (see, in particular, Paragraph E. "Modalità di adesione e ulteriori termini e condizioni dell'Offerta" of the Tender Offer Memorandum), by the subscription and delivery of the appropriate acceptance form set for the Extended Offering Period (the "Acceptance Form for the Extended Offering Period").
