In order to facilitate the implementation of the reverse shares split process for the individual shareholders and the management of any possible remains that might emerge from the same, UniCredit has appointed Banca Finnat Euramerica S.p.A. in order to be counterpart from January 23, 2017 to January 30, 2017 in the liquidation of grouped UniCredit shares' fractions that are exceeding the minimum necessary to allow shareholders to hold a whole number of ordinary and/or savings shares. The abovementioned fractions will be liquidated, on the basis of the official price of the ordinary and savings UniCredit shares recorded on January 20, 2017, i.e. the trading day preceding the day of the reverse stock split transaction; the price will be notified to Monte Titoli S.p.A. and to the intermediary custodians on January 23, 2017. Shareholders will not incur any charges for incidental expenses related to liquidation transactions referred to above.
Share grouping transactions may be carried out by all authorized intermediaries through Monte Titoli S.p.A., in accordance with the instructions that the intermediaries will receive by each of their customers.
Moreover, the intermediary depositaries will receive instructions, through Monte Titoli S.p.A., to ensure that, according to the availability of the shares deriving from the reverse stock split of the complex of the liquidated shares, holders of less than 10 existing shares receive, upon request, 1 new share against payment of the relative consideration, as determined above.
Holders of potential ordinary or savings shares that have not yet been dematerialized are hereby reminded that share grouping transactions may be carried out only after they have surrendered their share certificates to an authorised intermediary for inclusion, in dematerialised form, in the centralised clearing system operated by Monte Titoli S.p.A.. Therefore, holders of ordinary or savings shares that have not been dematerialized are hereby requested to surrender their share certificates to an authorised intermediary as soon as possible.
