PRESS RELEASE
BPER Group: sale without recourse of a bad loan portfolio for a gross of € 450 million
Modena, 14 July 2016 - BPER Group would like to announce completion of the sale without recourse of
a bad loan portfolio to two different investors specialized in this sector, Algebris NPL Fund and Cerberus
European Investments.
The portfolio of bad loans that has been sold consists of approximately 15,000 positions for a total gross
book value (“GBV”) of approximately € 450 million. The bad loans sold are primarily secured by real
estate collateral (87%) and related to corporate counterparties; the unsecured portion, that is not backed
by collateral, included in the sale amounts to approximately € 58 million (13% of the overall portfolio
sold) and is made up of around 14,500 positions. The impact of this transaction on the consolidated
income statement is not significant.
The sale has distinctive features for the domestic market in terms of size and characteristics of the
portfolio, as they are mainly “corporate secured” loans. BPER’s priority objective in carrying out this deal
is to reduce its stock of gross bad loans; in fact, a second important transaction is being scheduled for
the second half of the year to sell another bad loan portfolio, in this case mainly “unsecured”.
These transactions should be viewed as part of a bad loan management strategy, the objective of which
is to reduce the stock of bad loans and to improve recoveries. The focal point of these initiatives is
“BPER Credit Management”, a Group company that has been operating since 1 January this year with
over 170 specialized members of staff, which have been entrusted with the management of bad loans,
and the outsourcing of “small-mid tickets” to external specialized servicers.
The BPER Group was assisted in this operation by Oliver Wyman as arranger, by Banca IMI’s Credit
Solutions Group team for the financial structuring and by the legal firm Orrick, Herrington & Sutcliffe for
the legal aspects.
