Operating and financial review for the three months ended 30 September 2021

FORM AND CONTENT

This financial report is based on the unaudited interim financial statements of ASR Media and Sponsorship S.p.A. (hereinafter "MediaCo" or "the Issuer") as of and for the period ended 30 September 2021 (hereinafter also "the Report"), concerning operating performance for the three months of the 2021-2022 financial year (hereinafter "the three months" or "the Period").

The Report has been prepared in accordance with the Indenture dated August 8, 2019 (the "Indenture"), among, inter alios, the Issuer, AS Roma S.p.A. ("TeamCo" or "AS Roma"), Soccer Sas di Brand Management S.r.l. ("Soccer" or "Guarantor"), The Law Debenture Trust Corporation p.l.c., as trustee and legal representative of the Holders (mandatario con rappresentanza) under the Indenture, common representative (rappresentante comune) of the Holders pursuant to articles 2417 and 2418 of the Italian Civil Code and representative (rappresentante) pursuant to article 2414-bis, 3rd paragraph of the Italian Civil Code (the "Trustee"), Unione di Banche Italiane S.p.A (now Intesa Sanpaolo S.p.A.). as security agent (the "Security Agent"), The Bank of New York Mellon, London Branch, as paying agent, and The Bank of New York Mellon SA/NV, Luxembourg Branch as transfer agent and registrar. Under the Indenture the Issuer issued a €275.0 million aggregate principal amount of Senior Secured Notes due 2024 (the "Notes"). In accordance with the Indenture this report has not been audited or reviewed by auditors.

During preparation of the financials for the three months period ended 30 September 2020 and 2021, presented in this Report, the international accounting standards (IFRS) approved by the European Commission and in force from time to time were applied. The measurement criteria and accounting principles applied for the three months period ended 30 September 2021 are consistent with those adopted in the Consolidated Financial Statements of AS Roma Group as of 30 June 2021, and with those adopted in the unaudited interim financial statements of the Issuer as of 30 September 2020.

The accounting schedules in this Report are in thousands of euro, whereas the comments are in millions of euro. Due to the rounding of the amounts to the unit of euro, it may happen that the sum of the amounts shown in the detailed lines of any table differs from the amount shown in the line of the total.

This Report contains forward-looking statements relating to the economic and financial performance of the Issuer, the Guarantor and TeamCo, based on forecast data which, due to their nature, present various degrees of uncertainty, since the estimated events from which they originate may not occur or occur to a different extent from the one expected, while events unforeseeable at the time of their preparation may occur, thus generating significant deviations between final values and budgeted values.

Seasonality of operations

The economic and financial performance of the Issuer and of the Group is characterized by a strong seasonal nature typical of the football business sector, essentially determined by participation in European competitions, by the calendar of sporting events and by the phases of the Transfer Campaign of rights to sports services of the players. In particular, the calendar of sporting events, to which the payment of the main Cash Inflows items is linked, has repercussions on infra-annual results and on their comparability with those of the corresponding periods of previous years.

ABOUT MEDIACO

MediaCo is a joint stock corporation (società per azioni), owned 11.34% by AS Roma and 88.66% by Soccer, incorporated in Italy in connection with the contribution to MediaCo by AS Roma and Soccer, of their business relating to media, broadcast and sponsorship rights, AS Roma's historical media archives and the intellectual property rights relating to the AS Roma brand. In particular, MediaCo was incorporated on 2 December 2014 as part of the process of refinancing and reorganising the business of exploiting and managing AS Roma's trademarks and of managing media operations, which was separated from management of the Company's core business, i.e., organising and playing football matches. In further detail, all licensing and sponsorship assets, as well as direct media rights associated with the Roma TV channel and the Roma Radio station, in addition to other operations on digital platforms (e.g. website, Facebook, Twitter, WeChat, Instagram, YouTube, Pinterest, Giphy, Weibo, etc.), were contributed to ASR Media and Sponsorship. Separating media and sponsorship operations from the Company's other operations simplifies the monitoring of its financial performance. The contributions of the business units of AS Roma and Soccer to MediaCo, which represent the commencement of operations by the transferee, were undertaken on 11 February 2015.

AS Roma is "TeamCo" in the structure of the Notes. Its shares are listed on the Mercato Telematico Azionario (MTA) (Standard Class 1 segment) of Borsa Italiana, the Italian stock exchange, with 13.198% of its share capital held by public shareholders. As of the date of this Report, according to the shareholders' ledger, on the basis of notices received and other available information, the only parties on record as directly or indirectly holding shares with voting rights in excess of 3% of AS Roma's share capital are NEEP Roma Holding S.p.A., a private company limited by shares incorporated in Italy with legal address at Viale Tolstoj 2/6, 00144 Rome, enrolled with the Companies' Register of Rome with No. 11418561004, and Romulus and Remus Investments LLC, a Delaware limited liability company, with registered office in Wilmington, Delaware, 1209 Orange Street and operating headquarters in Houston, Texas, 1375 Enclave Parkway. More specifically, NEEP Roma Holding S.p.A. owns 83.284% of A.S. Roma S.p.A. share capital and is 100% owned by Romulus and Remus Investments LLC, which in turn owns 3.518% of A.S. Roma S.p.A. voting shares.

Soccer is the "Guarantor" in the structure of the Notes and is a limited partnerships (società in accomandita semplice) incorporated in Italy, owned 99.98% by AS Roma, 0.01% by ASR Soccer LP S.r.l. and 0.01% by Brand Management S.r.l. Soccer was incorporated on 15 January 2007, through the contribution by A.S. Roma of its merchandising, marketing and sports sponsorship business unit. In particular, as limited partner, A.S. Roma contributed the business unit at a value of € 125.1 million, as determined by a specific sworn appraisal, and Brand Management S.r.l., as general partner, contributed € 0.01 million. During the year ended 30 June 2007, the transaction entailed the following consequences for A.S. Roma: (i) the booking of a capital gain of € 123.1 million, accounted in a specific Equity reserve figured as the difference between the contribution value of the business unit and the net carrying amount of the assets and liabilities included in that business unit at 30 September 2006, net of cash and equivalents not contributed; and (ii) the recognition of an equity investment of € 125.1 million against the elimination of the net carrying amount of the assets and liabilities comprising the contributed business unit. On 17 December 2007, in accordance with the contractual agreements, the balance due on the contribution of the business unit was formalized on the basis of the business unit's financial position, updated at 31 December 2006, yielding a difference of € 1.7 million, which led to a corresponding decrease in the share capital of Soccer SAS and of the value of A.S. Roma's interest in its share capital, currently carried at € 123.4 million.
