Milan, 6th August 2020 – Today the Board of Directors of Banca Farmafactoring S.p.A. (BFF) approved the first half-year 2020 consolidated financial statements. All the 1H 2020 figures (both adjusted and reported) include for the entire period IOS Finance, merged on 31/12/2019, while it is excluded from 1H 2019 figures.
 LPIs over-recovery vs. 45% minimum recovery rate assumed for accounting purpose, net of the re-scheduling impact. Re-scheduling impact: for receivables not collected within the expected maximum collection date, interest income is reduced by the amount of yield required to keep the IRR of the portfolio constant until the new expected collection date. In particular, the value of the credit on the balance sheet is re-calculated using the new expected cash-flow schedule and the negative delta in value is booked in the P&L to maintain the original IRR.
