- Operating income at €6,494 million, in line with the €6,493 million recorded in 2Q10, with trading income offsetting the seasonality of other revenue items

- Loan loss provisions decline further to €1,634 million, with the cost of risk dropping with respect to the 122 bp reported in 2Q10 to 117 bp

- The solid structure of the balance sheet, the high level of liquidity (the internal liquidity ratio reaches 0.99) and the capacity to generate capital confirmed in the quarter (Core Tier 1 +20 bp QoQ)

The Board of Directors of UniCredit approved the consolidated results for the first nine months of 2010 which show the Group’s portion of net profit at €1,003 million (€1,165 million net of goodwill impairment posted by the Kazakhstan subsidiary in second quarter 2010), €334 of which in the third quarter. The Group’s quarterly results stand out for the stability of the operating income (unchanged QoQ), cost control (-0.7% QoQ) and the drop in loan loss provisions (-4.8% QoQ).

Operating income reaches €19,793 million in the first nine months of 2010, a drop of 7.9% YoY on a constant currency and perimeter basis), and €6,494 million in third quarter 2010, in line with the €6,493 million recorded in the prior quarter. The evolution QoQ reflects the recovery in net trading, hedging and fair value income, which offsets the seasonality of net commissions and dividends, as well as a slight drop in net interest income.

Net interest amounts to €11,814 million in the first nine months of 2010 (-12.1% YoY on a constant currency and perimeter basis), reflecting an unquestionably less favourable interest rate environment. In the third quarter net interest reaches €3,919 million, down with respect to the €3,977 million recorded in the second quarter, attributable above all to a lower contribution from trading related interests and a greater cost of funding due to the issue of subordinated notes in the third quarter.

Net commissions amount to €6,417 million in the first nine months of 2010, a noticeable increase (+11.2% on a constant currency and perimeter basis) with respect to the €5,666 million reported in the same period of the prior year, confirming the good recovery of the asset management activities, as well as the satisfactory performance of the other commission items. Net commissions in third quarter 2010 amount to €2,038 million, a decrease with respect to the €2,209 million recorded in the prior quarter explained, above all, by the seasonal slowdown in commissions from investment management services which, typically, decline in the summer months. At September 30th 2010, the volume of the assets managed by the Group’s Asset Management Division amounts to €185.0 billion.

Net trading, hedging and fair value income totals €999 million in the first nine months of 2010, down sharply with respect to the €1,651 million recorded in the same period of 2009. This performance is attributable primarily to the deterioration of the financial markets following the government debt crisis in second quarter 2010. The quarterly trend, in fact, shows clear improvement: at the close of third quarter 2010 the Group’s net trading, hedging and fair value income climbs to €381 million (from €58 million in second quarter 2010).

Other net income in the first nine months of 2010 comes in at €299 million (€86 million of which in the third quarter), in line with the €304 million recorded in the first nine months of 2009.

Operating costs amount to €11,728 million in the first nine months of 2010, an increase of 0.7% YoY on a constant currency and perimeter basis. The operating costs in third quarter 2010 amount to €3,911 million, -0.7% QoQ ( -1.7% QoQ net of a €38 million non-recurring charge recognized in third quarter 2010).

Payroll costs in the first nine months of 2010 rise 1.9% YoY on a like-for-like basis, due above all to the release of provisions for variable compensation in 2009, coming in at €7,009 million. Payroll costs in third quarter 2010 rise 1.1% QoQ, due primarily to the non-recurring item of €38 million, net of which and on a constant currency and perimeter basis, payroll costs show a drop of 0.6% QoQ.

Other administrative expenses, net of recovery of expenses, reach €3,752 million in the first nine months of 2010, a slight drop with respect to the €3,769 million recorded in the same period in of 2009. In third quarter 2010 the figure reaches €1,219 million, -5.7% QoQ due also to the seasonality that typically affects advertising costs.

Amortization, depreciation and impairment losses on intangible and tangible assets in the first nine months of 2010 amounts to €966 million, compared with €931 million in the same period of 2009. The figure reaches €336 million in third quarter 2010, an increase with respect to the €314 million recorded in the prior quarter.

The cost/income ratio reaches 59.3% in the first nine months of 2010 (60.2% in the third quarter, down with respect to the 60.7% reported in the second quarter), an increase with respect to the first nine months of 2009 (54.5%).

In third quarter 2010 the figure continues its decline from the peak recorded in second quarter 2009, coming in at €1,634 million (from €1,716 million in second quarter 2010), equal to a cost of risk of 117bp annualized.

The Group’s portion of net profit in the first nine months of 2010 amounts to €1,003 million compared with €1,331 million in the same period of the prior year (-€328 million YoY), which had benefited from a greater contribution of trading income to revenues and which was not impacted by the non-recurring charge of €162 million related to goodwill impairment posted by the Kazakhstan subsidiary in second quarter 2010.
