11:17 EDTUBSDOJ files charges against UBS Securities Japan for LIBOR manipulation
The Justice Department is filing a criminal information charging UBS Securities Japan – a subsidiary of the multinational financial institution UBS – with felony wire fraud for engaging in a scheme to manipulate the London Interbank Offered Rate, or LIBOR – a key benchmark for financial products and transactions around the world. The company has agreed to plead guilty to this charge, to admit to its criminal conduct, and to pay a $100M fine. UBS AG – the parent company of UBS Japan – has agreed to pay a penalty of $400M to the U.S government; to admit and accept responsibility for its misconduct; and to continue cooperating with the Department’s ongoing investigation as part of a non-prosecution agreement. Combined with roughly $1 billion in regulatory penalties and disgorgement, these criminal fines and penalties bring today’s total resolution to approximately $1.5B. The non-prosecution agreement illustrates the significant steps that UBS has taken to help investigators uncover LIBOR misconduct, and to implement remedial measures strengthening the company’s internal controls.

06:39 EDTUBSEuropean banks take out EUR83B of loans from central bank, NY Times says
European banks agreed to take out EUR83B in low interest loans from the European Central Bank, as part of a program in which all of the funds must be loaned to businesses or individuals, or repaid to the central bank within two years, according to The New York Times. Several analysts had said that they would be disappointed if banks took out less than EUR100B in loans, but a number of analysts said that a second round of the program, due to occur in December after stress tests have been completed, may be more popular, the newspaper stated. Publicly traded European banks include Banco Santander (SAN), Barclays (BCS), Credit Suisse (CS), Deutsche Bank (DB), HSBC (HSBC), ING Groep (ING), Lloyds Banking (LYG), Royal Bank of Scotland (RBS) and UBS (UBS).
