UBS’s emergency purchase of Credit Suisse may have been required to prevent a financial disaster, but it ultimately harmed Investors who held $17 billion in additional tier-one bonds issued by Credit Suisse.
Why? The investors were stunned to learn that their $17 billion were suddenly worth exactly…nothing. With the transaction, the value of those bonds had been totally wiped away.
What are additional tier-one bonds? During the 2008 financial crisis, additional tier-one bonds (AT1s) were created to lessen the risk that taxpayers would have to bail out a collapsed bank. AT1s are seen as riskier investments, but they also have the potential for larger returns.
Therefore, if these bondholders were aware of the danger they were incurring, why are they so upset? Mostly because, in this unprecedented transaction, they lost everything while stockholders did not. According to finance 101, when a write-down occurs, shareholders are often affected before bondholders.
