MAPFRE Issues Solvency II Update

MAPFRE has updated its Solvency II position as on 30 June 2020, following the request from the
General Directorate for Insurance and Pension Funds, and within the framework of the Statement on
Solvency II supervisory reporting in the context of COVID-19 issued by EIOPA, the European insurance
supervisory authority.

This updating of its solvency position, which has already been reported to the Supervisor, required
both Solvency Capital Requirement (SCR) and eligible own funds to be estimated in the first half of
2020 – usually calculated annually and quarterly, respectively. The results are detailed below, along
with the results calculated at the close of 2019 and the first quarter for comparison purposes:

The Solvency II ratio has improved by 6.6 percentage points compared to March, and reflects the
significant increase in own funds (an increase of almost 500 million euros in the second quarter of the
year), as a result of actively managing the investment portfolio in a more favourable environment.

“The robustness of the Solvency ratio reflects, once again, the great strength and resilience of the
company’s balance sheet,” explained Fernando Mata, CFO and member of the Board.
Despite the impact of the crisis, MAPFRE remains within the tolerance range established by the
Board, which sets the lower threshold of the solvency margin at 175 percent.”
