Milan, 7 November 2019: on 6 November 2019, the Board of Directors of UniCredit S.p.A. approved the 3Q19 and 9M19 Group's consolidated financial accounts as of 30 September 2019.

Jean Pierre Mustier, Chief Executive Officer of UniCredit S.p.A., commenting on the 3Q19 and 9M19 Group results:

 

"With yet another strong quarter we have successfully delivered Transform 2019. Thanks to our proactive and decisive actions we have already met or will exceed our key targets by the end of this year. I am grateful to the whole UniCredit team, which has worked tirelessly to secure the success of our strategic plan, ensuring UniCredit is and remains a pan-European winner. 

 

"The third quarter net result, with no exceptional items, at 1.1 billion euro, up 25.7 per cent year on year adjusted, was yet again the best quarter achieved in a decade. This was thanks to resilient commercial dynamics, strong trading revenues and our focus on cost discipline which continues to pay off.

 

"We confirm our improved Non Core Gross NPEs will be below 10 billion at the end of 2019 and our Group Core gross NPE ratio now stands at a low 3.6 per cent. Since the launch of Transform 2019, our Group Gross NPEs have dropped by close to 50 billion.

 

"Doing the right thing is one of our key guiding principles. As a bank, we are an integral part of the societies in which we operate and we continue to support the economies where we are present in many ways.  I am proud that in the third quarter we have reached a total of more than 100 million euros disbursed in Italy through our social impact banking initiative to help get new social enterprises off the ground and provide impact financing and micro-lending to clients in economically deprived areas.

 

"Again let me thank all UniCredit colleagues who have made the outstanding results of Transform 2019 possible. Together we will continue to forge ahead successfully and we look forward to presenting our new business strategy, 'Team 23', on the 3rd of December."
