3 This report (the Report ) prepared pursuant to Article 2441, paragraph 6 of the Italian Civil Code, Article 125-ter of Italian Legislative Decree No. 58 of February 24, 1998 as amended and supplemented (the Italian Consolidated Financial Act ) and Article 70 of the Regulation adopted by Consob Resolution No of May 14, 1999 as amended and supplemented (the Issuers Regulation ), as well as in accordance with Annex 3A of the Issuers Regulation, illustrates the reasons for the proposals relating to the third item on the agenda for the extraordinary Shareholders Meeting. 1. Description, reasons and purpose of the Share Capital Increase in Kind The proposed Share Capital Increase in Kind is one of the capital management initiatives approved by the Bank s Board of Directors on October 26, 2014, to address the envisaged need for additional capital of Euro million, based on the Comprehensive Assessment (the CA ), the results of which were announced by the European Central Bank (the ECB ) following the investigations carried out by the ECB along with the European Banking Authority (the EBA ) and the Bank of Italy. Please note that the above-mentioned capital management initiatives also include the proposed share capital increase pursuant to pre-emptive subscription rights granted to existing shareholders, subject to the examination and approval of the Company s Extraordinary Shareholders Meeting convened in combined session April 23, 2015, listed as the first item on that meeting s agenda (the Share Capital Increase ). In order to acquire the minority interests in the controlled banks as established in the Capital Plan, a proposal is hereby submitted to the Shareholders Meeting to approve the Share Capital Increase in Kind, the effects of which are illustrated in the report regarding the Share Capital Increase. For additional information regarding the CA and the results for Banca CARIGE, the decision of ECB of March 10, 2015 following the Supervisory Review and Evaluation process, as well as the Share Capital Increase and the effects of the Share Capital Increase BANCA CARIGE Joint stock company - Via Cassa di Risparmio, Genoa 3

4 in Kind, please refer to the report regarding the Share Capital Increase, available to the public as required by law and available for consultation on the Company website (in the Governance - Shareholders Meetings section). 2. Indication of the value of the contributed assets as set forth in the appraisal of the independent expert pursuant to Article 2343-ter, paragraph 2, letter b) of the Italian Civil Code Bank CARIGE has acted pursuant Article 2343-ter, paragraph 2, letter b) of the Italian Civil Code which, in particular, as to the valuation of contributed assets, provides for the option of not requesting a sworn appraisal of the contributed assets by an expert appointed by the court with jurisdiction over the transferee company s registered office, in case the value assigned to the assets contributed in kind, for the purposes of determining the share capital and any share premium, is equal to or lower than the value resulting from a valuation carried out by an expert with adequate and proven professionalism who is independent from the contributing entity, the company and the shareholders who individually or jointly control the contributing entity or the company itself. PricewaterhouseCoopers Advisory S.p.A., as independent expert with adequate and proven professionalism, engaged by Banca CARIGE and by the Foundations, provides the appraisal pursuant to and for the purpose of Article 2343-ter, paragraph 2, letter b) of the Italian Civil Code, in which, applying the Excess of Capital version of the Dividend Discount Model (the DDM or the Dividend Discount Model ) and the comparable transaction multiples valuation method, concluded that the economic value of the equity interests subject to the Contributions is at least equal to the value assigned to them for the purpose of determining the Share Capital Increase in Kind, i.e. Euro 6,264,444 for the equity interests in Cassa di Risparmio di Savona S.p.A. and Euro 9,558,441 for the equity interests in Cassa di Risparmio di Carrara S.p.A. The Bank also engaged Equita SIM S.p.A. as financial advisor in order to provide analyses and useful elements to support decisions made by the Board of Directors. BANCA CARIGE Joint stock company - Via Cassa di Risparmio, Genoa 4

5 In addition, Equita SIM S.p.A. provided the Board with a fairness opinion certifying the adequacy of the maximum number of shares subject to the Share Capital Increase in Kind reserved to the Foundations, which the Bank determined based on the issue price of Banca CARIGE s ordinary shares (please refer to par. 3 below for details) and the value assigned to the contributed assets, i.e.: (i) (ii) valuation of 8,760,929 shares corresponding to 4.1% of the share capital of Cassa di Risparmio di Savona S.p.A. at a multiple of 1.0x shareholders' equity of the subsidiary in 2014 (amounting to Euro 152,830,668.00, in the aggregate); valuation of 10,230 shares corresponding to 10.0% of the share capital of Cassa di Risparmio di Carrara S.p.A. at a multiple of 1.0x shareholders' equity in 2014 (amounting to Euro 95,584,410.00, in the aggregate). 3. Indication of the number, category, date of commencement of enjoyment of dividend rights and issue price of the shares subject to the Share Capital Increase in Kind The Share Capital Increase in Kind will occur by issuing up to 226,364,603 newly issued Banca CARIGE s ordinary shares (the New Shares ) with no par value, at the price (including the share premium) of Euro per New Share. The New Shares will have regular dividend rights and the same characteristics and rights as the Banca CARIGE s ordinary shares outstanding at the issue date. The Share Capital Increase in Kind entails the issue of up to 226,364,603 New Shares at the subscription price of Euro (including the share premium), of which: (i) No. 89,620,097 New Shares are to be paid in through the contribution in kind of 8,760,929 Cassa di Risparmio di Savona S.p.A. s shares (equal to 4.10% of the share capital) by Fondazione Agostino de Mari - Cassa di Risparmio di Savona; BANCA CARIGE Joint stock company - Via Cassa di Risparmio, Genoa 5

6 (ii) No. 136,744,506 New Shares are to be paid in through the contribution in kind of 10,230 Cassa di Risparmio di Carrara S.p.A. s shares (equal to 10% of the share capital) by Fondazione Cassa di Risparmio di Carrara. Euro (including the share premium) is the price determined per New Share, in compliance with Article 2441, paragraph 6 of the Italian Civil Code, on the basis of the simple average of official prices recorded in the last month (from February 18, 2015 to March 18, 2015) prior to the Board of Directors resolution approving this Report (equal, as stated above, to Euro per New Share). Please note that if the reverse split of the Company s ordinary and savings shares pursuant to the second item on the agenda for the Extraordinary Shareholders Meeting on April 23, 2015 (if approved) is carried out before the Share Capital Increase in Kind, the numerical values of that share capital increase will be amended accordingly. The Share Capital Increase in Kind also received the prior approval of the Risks Committee, in compliance with supervisory regulations regarding Risk assets and conflicts of interest in relation to associated parties pursuant to Title V, Chapter 5 of Bank of Italy Circular No. 263 of December 27, 2006 as amended and supplemented. In fact, Banca CARIGE considers the Foundations to be associated parties due to their relations with the Controlled Banks, over which it is believed that they are able to exercise significant influence, although in certain cases they hold less than the presumptive stake for exercising such influence. As regards the adequacy of the issue price of the shares deriving from the Share Capital Increase in Kind, please refer to the report of Reconta Ernst & Young S.p.A., the firm entrusted with auditing the Banca CARIGE s accounts, pursuant to Article 2441, paragraph 6 of the Italian Civil Code and Article 158 of the Italian Consolidated Financial Act.

In terms of indirect taxes, the transfer deed is subject to a fixed registration fee of Euro , pursuant to Article 4, paragraph 1, number 5 of tariff part I, annexed to Italian Presidential Decree No. 131 of April 26, Indication of the shareholding structure of the Company following the Share Capital Increase in Kind, of the controlling party pursuant to Article 93 of the Italian Consolidated Financial Act following the Share Capital Increase in Kind and the effects of this transaction on any significant shareholders' agreements pursuant to Article 122 of the Italian Consolidated Financial Act concerning Company shares The table below shows the Company shareholders (based on available information and the communications from the Company as of the date of this Report) following the execution of the Share Capital Increase in Kind (indicating shareholders holding interests exceeding 2% of the share capital and the Foundations).

9 6 Authorisations from the Competent Authorities The Share Capital Increase in Kind is subject to the authorisation from the competent Supervisory Authorities and the Ministry of Economy and Finance, each insofar as it is responsible. Please note that the New Shares resulting from the Share Capital Increase in Kind reserved to the Foundations represent less than 10% of the Banca CARIGE s ordinary shares. Therefore, pursuant to Article 57, paragraph 1, letter a) of the Issuers' Regulation, the Company is not required to publish a prospectus. Please also note that the publication of the disclosure document pursuant to Article 70, paragraph 6 of the Issuers' Regulation is not required, as this is not a significant share capital increase transaction through contribution of assets in kind, according to the criteria set forth in Annex 3B of the Issuers' Regulation. In this respect please note that, as noted previously, the proposed Share Capital Increase in Kind is one of the capital management initiatives set forth in the Capital Plan submitted to the ECB, and therefore it is part of the procedures for supervision over significant supervised entities within the scope of the Single Supervisory Mechanism governed by Regulation (EU) No. 1024/2013 of the Council of October 15, 2013 and Regulation (EU) No. 468/2014 of the European Central Bank of April 16, Subject to approval by the Ministry of Economy and Finance, the Share Capital Increase in Kind will be carried out before the Share Capital Increase pursuant to the first item on the agenda of the Extraordinary Shareholders Meeting. 7 Amendments to Article 5 of the By-Laws In relation to the foregoing, the current text of Article 5 of the By-Laws is reported below alongside a comparison incorporating the proposed amendments (the amendments are in BANCA CARIGE Joint stock company - Via Cassa di Risparmio, Genoa 9
