Hypo Alpe-Adria-Bank S.p.A. also known as HBI is an Italian bank based in Tavagnacco, in the Province of Udine, Friuli – Venezia Giulia region. The registered office of the bank was located in Udine. In the past the bank was a subsidiary of Hypo Alpe-Adria-Bank International, which was planned to wind-down as "bad bank" and separate saleable assets in 2013 as "good bank". In 2014 the subsidiary was spin-off from the bad bank as a separate wind-down unit. As at 31 December 2014, Hypo Italy was a subsidiary HBI-Bundesholding A.G., a Vienna-based sub-holding company for the government of Austria.
The bank had 19 branches in Italy: Veneto (7), Lombardy (6) and Friuli – Venezia Giulia (6). The Italian leasing department of Hypo Alpe-Adria Italy was remained in the bad bank, now known as Heta Asset Resolution Italia S.r.l., a subsidiary of Heta Asset Resolution (sold in 2016 to a private equity fund).
The bank was founded in 1986 as Finservice S.r.l., a company provides finance lease. In 1988 it was purchased by Kärntner Landes und Hypothekenbank. The bank was renamed into Hyposervice S.r.l. and became Società per Azioni in 1990. In 1998 the company became a bank. The parent company was nationalized in 2009. In March 2014 the Italian subsidiary was spin off from the bad bank save for the leasing department. The entire board of directors except the independent director was replaced. Former president Johannes Leopold Proksch, vice-president Rainer Sichert, director Lorenzo Snaidero and Stephan Holzer were all fined by Banca d'Italia. Italian Guardia di Finanza also started an investigation on the former leasing department on possible overcharging interests from the borrower in October 2014.
As at 31 December 2014, the Common Equity Tier 1 ratio was once fall to 0.58%, much lower than Basel III requirement of 4.5%. In 2014 Hypo Italy had 26 branches.
In 2016, the bank also made an open invitation to submit expression of interest to acquire the branches and performing mortgage portfolio. In 2016 Banca Valsabbina purchased 7 branches from Hypo as well as a loan portfolio of €150 million.
