As of 31 March 31 2019, structural financial debt of the Group towards third parties amounted to €973 million, consisting in a Private Placement issued by Poste Italiane SpA for €50 million, a loan granted by the EIB - European Investment Bank for €173 million (maturity date March 2026) aimed at financing some investment projects and a subordinated bond issued by Poste Vita SpA for €750 million (maturity date 30 May 2019).

On the same date, the Mail, Parcels and Distribution segment of the Group has Liquidity for €599 million, invested in bank and postal current accounts, as well as in Italian Government Bonds (BTP) classified as HTCS (hold to collect and sale) for a total notional amount of €500 million. Such liquidity represents the Group's free liquidity generated by the company's self-financing capability, partly attributable to Poste SpA and partly deriving from the centralization of the Group liquidity and from the related cash pooling activity by the parent company.

Furthermore, as of 31 March 2019 the Poste Italiane SpA has committed credit lines of €1,750 million and short-term uncommitted credit lines of €953 million. All the credit lines, as of 31 March 2019, are fully undrawn.
