05:38 EDTUBSUBS sees Q4 loss of CHF 2.0B - CHF 2.5B
UBS said it believes its Q4 net profit attributable to shareholders will show a loss in the approximate range of CHF 2.0B - CHF 2.5B, primarily as a result of: total provisions for litigation and regulatory matters, including the LIBOR settlements, of approximately CHF 2.1B; restructuring charges of approximately CHF 0.5B; and an own credit loss on financial liabilities designated at fair value of approximately CHF 0.4B. On an adjusted basis, UBS expects to report a pre-tax profit in the approximate range of CHF 2.5B-3.0B for the year. The bank added, "We are encouraged by the progress we have seen in the quarter to date on both RWA reduction and balance sheet deleveraging. Net new money is expected to be positive in the quarter as we have seen good flows in our Wealth Management and Wealth Management Americas businesses, while we have seen net outflows in Global Asset Management. Our Basel III phase-in common equity tier 1 ratio is expected to improve to around 14% by quarter-end and our fully applied Basel III common equity tier 1 ratio, inclusive of the effects from early adopting IAS 19R in the fourth quarter, is expected to be roughly in line with the third quarter's level of 9.3%."
