UBS set to gain EU nod for Credit Suisse deal

Reuters exclusively revealed that UBS (UBSG.S) is expected to secure unconditional European Union antitrust approval for its planned takeover of struggling Credit Suisse (CSGN.S), putting the Swiss bank closer to completing the deal.  

Market Impact

UBS agreed to buy Credit Suisse for 3 billion Swiss francs ($3.4 billion) in stock and to assume up to 5 billion francs in losses in March, in a shotgun merger engineered by Swiss authorities to avoid more market-shaking turmoil in global banking. Both UBS and Credit Suisse are in a group of the 30 global systematically important banks watched closely by regulators, and Credit Suisse’s failure would ripple throughout the entire financial system.
