Banco Bilbao Vizcaya Argentaria, S.A. (BBVA), in compliance with the Securities Market legislation, hereby communicates the following:

OTHER RELEVANT INFORMATION

BBVA has been subject to the 2023 EU-wide Stress Test conducted by the European Banking Authority (EBA), in cooperation with the European Central Bank (ECB) and the European Systemic Risk Board (ESRB).

The 2023 EU-wide Stress Test does not contain a pass/fail threshold, instead it is designed to be used as an important source of information for the Supervisory Review and Evaluation Process (SREP) in 2023. The results allow competent authorities to assess BBVA’s ability to meet the regulatory capital requirements under stressed scenarios based on common methodological assumptions.

The adverse stress test scenario was set by the ECB and the ESRB covering a three-year time horizon (2023-2025) and the stress test scenario has been carried out applying a static balance sheet assumption as of December 31st, 2022. Therefore the stress test scenario does not take into account business strategies and management actions implemented after the cut-off date.

BBVA’s results are summarized below:

 

 

Under the baseline scenario, BBVA’s CET1 fully loaded ratio would increase by 3.26 percentage points from December 31st 2022, reaching a maximum level of 15.87% as of December 31st 2025.

 

Under the adverse scenario, BBVA’s CET1 fully loaded ratio would be reduced by 2.95 percentage points from December 31st 2022, reaching a minimum level of 9.66% as of December 31st 2025.

Further information is available on the EBA website (www.eba.europa.eu)

Madrid, July 28th 2023

Note: The stress test exercise information is provided in the accompanying disclosure tables based on the common format provided by the EBA. The EU-stress test exercise and its results are not a forecast of BBVA profits.

This English version is a translation of the original in Spanish for information purposes only. In case of discrepancy, the Spanish original will prevail.
