UBS publishes Annual Report 2010
UBS is today publishing its Annual Report for 2010. The report is available at www.ubs.com/annualreporting.
Zurich/Basel, 15 March 2011 - UBS's Annual Report for 2010 provides comprehensive information on the firm, its strategy, business, governance and financial performance. It contains both audited and unaudited information.
• UBS's net profit attributable to shareholders for 2010 was CHF 7.5 billion
• 2010's diluted earnings per share were CHF 1.96
These results differ from those presented in UBS's fourth quarter 2010 report issued on 8 February 2011 as a result of adjustments made subsequent to the publication of that report.
The net effect of the adjustments, which are explained in Note 33 to the financial statements included in the Annual Report 2010, was an increase in UBS's net profit attributable to shareholders of CHF 373 million (equivalent to an additional CHF 0.10 earnings per share).
The Annual Report 2010 consists of five sections:
Strategy, performance and responsibility: This section provides a description of UBS and its strategy, organizational structure and financial performance for the last two years. It also discusses UBS's standards for corporate behavior and responsibility, outlines demographic trends in its workforce and describes how personnel is managed and developed.
