08:21 EDTUBSUBS sees DCCP to qualify as additional tier 1 capital
UBS has enhanced certain features of its employee compensation framework in anticipation of increased focus on tier 1 capital instruments. Starting with compensation for 2014, Deferred Contingent Capital Plan, or DCCP, awards will qualify as fully applied additional tier 1 capital under Basel III regulations. This will optimize the capital efficiency of these plans under Basel III. Outstanding DCCP awards granted for the performance years 2012 and 2013 are unaffected by these changes, and continue to qualify as Basel III tier 2 loss-absorbing capital. Reflecting progress in the establishment of its Group holding company, including the successful completion of its share-for-share exchange offer, UBS fully accrued a supplementary capital return of CHF 0.25 per share in the fourth quarter of 2014. The accrual reduced UBS's fully applied Basel III CET1 capital by approximately CHF 1B as of December 31, 2014. Subject to shareholder approval, UBS Group AG intends to pay the supplementary capital return upon successful completion of the squeeze-out procedure. The supplementary capital return is expected to be a distribution of capital contribution reserves. It is separate and in addition to its targeted capital return of at least 50% of net profit attributable to UBS shareholders, UBS said.

11:23 EDTUBSSEC charges UBS unit with disclosure violations in operating dark pool
The Securities and Exchange Commission has charged a subsidiary of UBS with disclosure failures and other securities law violations related to the operation and marketing of its dark pool. UBS Securities LLC agreed to settle the charges by paying more than $14.4M, including a $12M penalty that is the SEC’s largest against an alternative trading system. An SEC examination and investigation of UBS revealed that the firm failed to properly disclose to all subscribers the existence of an order type that it pitched almost exclusively to market makers and high-frequency trading firms. Furthermore, the SEC investigation found that UBS similarly failed to disclose to all subscribers a “natural-only crossing restriction” developed to ensure that select orders would not execute against orders placed by market makers and high-frequency trading firms. UBS consented to the SEC’s order without admitting or denying the findings. The order censures the firm and requires payment of $2,240,702.50 in disgorgement, $235,686.14 in prejudgment interest, and the $12M penalty.

06:42 EDTUBSECB most likely will unveil bond buying program, NY Times says
The European Central Bank is "all but certain" to announce at its next meeting that it will buy government bonds, according to The New York Times. But the ECB may announce that it will buy bonds but say that it will only provide details about the program in March, some believe, the newspaper reported. Some economists contend that the initiative could be a case of "too little, too late," The Times added. Publicly traded European banks include Banco Santander (SAN), Barclays (BCS), Credit Suisse (CS), Deutsche Bank (DB), HSBC (HSBC), ING Groep (ING), Lloyds Banking (LYG), RBS (RBS) and UBS (UBS).
