On 14 June 2021, the European Commission approved to extend by one year the final term for the state guarantee mechanism established by the Italian Government to facilitate the disposal of non-performing exposures ("NPEs") by Italian banks and financial intermediaries ("GACS"). The GACS scheme was originally introduced by law decree no. 18/2016 (as converted by Italian law no. 49/2016, the "GACS Law").
