UBS has combined all areas that are to be divested in the course of the Credit Suisse integration and restructuring in a unit called LCL (Non-Core and Legacy). A large part of the former Credit Suisse investment banking business is to be wound up.

The transaction is expected to result in a net gain of around $300 million for UBS in the first quarter of 2024 and a net loss of around $900 million for Credit Suisse AG over the same period.
