UBI Banca has won the 2008 edition of the Oscar di Bilancio Maggiori e Grandi Imprese Bancarie, Finanziarie (Financial reporting Oscar for major and large banking and financial companies). The prize is organised and promoted by FERPI - Italian Federation of Public Relations - under the high patronage of the President of the Republic of Italy.
Reasons for awarding the prize: "The financial report is distinguished by its completeness in all its parts. The reporting on intangible and financial assets in particular is very good as is that on the reconstruction of the pro-forma figures, given the change in the ownership structure. As concerns the social report, consideration was taken of the effective use of a GRI reference grid, the widespread distribution of the document and the full description of the structure of the Group."
