Subprime Crisis Forces UBS To Write Down $10 Billion

Posted: Updated:

Swiss banking giant UBS AG said Monday it will write off a further $10 billion on losses in the U.S. subprime lending market and will raise capital by selling substantial stakes to Singapore and an unnamed investor in the Middle East.

UBS will now record a loss for the fourth quarter and a net loss attributable to shareholders for the full year, the bank said.
