UBS warns of $17 billion in damages from Credit Suisse takeover

May 17 (Reuters) – UBS Group AG expects about $17 billion in financial losses from its takeover of rival Credit Suisse Group AG, the Swiss bank said in a presentation on Wednesday.

UBS estimates the negative impact of adjusting the assets and liabilities of the future combined group at $13 billion. The lender said another $4 billion could cost potential litigation and legal settlements related to the outflow of funds.

UBS, however, expects a one-off increase in its balance sheet total of $34.8 billion. due to the purchase of Credit Suisse for much less than its value.
