UBS forecasts Q1 result for FICC unit
Zurich/Basel, 30 March 2010 - A media report late yesterday indicated that UBS's Fixed Income, Currencies and Commodities unit (FICC) would generate revenue of about US$2.3 billion in first quarter 2010. Under SIX ad hoc publicity rules, UBS is required to comment on this report. The reported figure is slightly higher than FICC's current first quarter forecast revenues. Because the quarter has not ended and results to date are subject to possible fair value adjustments, including those relating to own credit, this forecast may not be reliable. UBS will issue its first quarter 2010 financial results on 4 May 2010.
