The Hypo Group Alpe Adria (HGAA) is an Austrian banking group with numerous cross-border activities in the Alps-Adriatic region. The group is active in Slovenia, Croatia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Serbia and Montenegro.
In the past Hypo Alpe-Adria-Bank International also actives in Austria, Germany, Italy, Bulgaria, Hungary and Ukraine. However, due to European debt crisis, the group was split into HBI-Bundesholding AG (consists of subsidiary Hypo Alpe-Adria-Bank S.p.A.; Italy), the Balkans banks (Hypo Group Alpe Adria AG) and a bad bank Heta Asset Resolution AG (ex-Hypo Alpe-Adria-Bank International AG) in 2014. The leasing subsidiary of former Hypo Alpe-Adria-Bank International in Italy, Bulgaria, Serbia, Montenegro and Macedonia were retained in the bad bank. The Austria branches was sold in 2013 (now Austrian Anadi Bank).
The bank was found in 1896 as Landes-und Hypothekenbank. In 1990s explosively expanded into the Alps-to-Adriatic region. In 2004 the company was renamed into Hypo Alpe-Adria-Bank International AG, as a holding company for the "Hypo Alpe-Adria-Bank" subsidiaries.

European debt crisis and the demerger of the group
On 14 December 2009, BayernLB, Kärntner Landesholding (Carinthia state holding) and Grazer Wechselseitige Versicherung sold their stakes in the bank to the Austrian government for 1 Euro each. The bank was nationalised by the Austrian government to avert a bank collapse. It is expected that between 13 and 19 billion Euros of outstanding loans will never be paid back; to avoid bankruptcy, the Austrian taxpayers will have to cover this loss. 
The headquarters, which accounts for around 500 employees, is located in Klagenfurt, Austria and was responsible for controlling the subsidiary banks in Austria, Italy and South-Eastern Europe as well as those markets from which the bank was withdrawing (wind-down markets).
As of February 2014, the Hypo Alpe-Adria-Bank International situation was unsolved, causing Chancellor Werner Faymann to warn that its failure would be comparable to the 1931 Creditanstalt event.
In March 2014, the Austrian government decided to split Hypo Alpe-Adria-Bank International into a Balkans banking unit (Hypo Group Alpe Adria A.G.; formerly: Hypo SEE Holding AG), an Italian business (HBI-Bundesholding A.G.) and a bad bank, Heta Asset Resolution. The Balkans unit was sold in December 2014 to Advent International (80%) and the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (20%).
