PROPOSALS TO BE SUBMITTED TO THE EXTRAORDINARY SHAREHOLDERS' MEETING
Rights issue by way of cash contribution as provided for by Article 2441, paragraphs 1, 2 and 3, of the Italian Civil Code

UniCredit ordinary and savings shares reverse stock split

Apart from the matters concerning the capital increase, the reverse split of UniCredit's ordinary and savings shares and the resolutions related thereto, the Shareholders' Meeting will be put the following proposals:
Appointment of Directors for the integration of the Board of Directors
