Julius Baer Group: Interim Management Statement for the First Ten Months of 2012

Regulatory News:

Julius Baer Group’s assets under management (AuM) amounted to CHF 187 billion at the end of October 2012, an increase of 10% from the end of 2011. Total client assets grew by 9% to CHF 274 billion. The increase in AuM resulted from continued net new money inflows close to the top end of the Group’s medium-term target range as well as a positive market performance impact supported by sustained gains in the global equity and bond markets. The year-to-date currency impact on AuM was negligible.

Since the end of June 2012, client transaction and trading activity initially contracted but recovered again in September and October 2012, albeit not fully to the levels seen on average in the first half of 2012. As a result, the gross margin in the first ten months of the year was slightly lower than the 98 basis points reported for the first six months of 2012 and, as a consequence, the cost-income ratio was slightly higher than the cost-income ratio reported for the first six months of 2012.

As at the end of September 2012, the Group’s BIS total capital ratio was 26.3% and its BIS tier 1 ratio 24.0%, with both ratios benefitting from the successful placement in September 2012 of CHF 250 million in additional non-core tier 1 capital.

Principal Closing of IWM acquisition expected to occur at end of January 2013

In October 2012, Julius Baer completed the financing for the acquisition of Merrill Lynch’s International Wealth Management business outside the US and Japan (IWM) by successfully issuing 20,316,285 new registered shares by way of a rights offering at an issue price of CHF 24.20 per share, resulting in gross proceeds of CHF 492 million. Based on the good progress made to date in terms of financing, obtaining regulatory approvals, as well as planning in detail for the transfer and separation of the acquired business, Principal Closing of the IWM transaction is expected to occur at the end of January 2013.

Julius Baer Group’s detailed financial results for the full year 2012 will be published on 4 February 2013.
