1 Communications P.O. Box, CH-8022 Zurich Telephone Zurich, 3 March 2011 Annual result of the Swiss National Bank for 2010 The Swiss National Bank (SNB) is reporting a consolidated loss of CHF 19,170.8 million for 2010, following a profit of CHF 9,955.0 million in the previous year. The annual result was overwhelmingly dominated, once again, by currency movements, not least the substantial appreciation of the Swiss franc towards the end of The parent company result, which was announced in mid-january, and upon which profit distribution is based, is CHF 20,807.1 million. This is CHF 1,636.2 million lower than the consolidated result. The difference is due to the consolidation of the stabilisation fund companies. For the financial year just ended, the SNB has set the allocation to the provisions for currency reserves at a level of CHF million. The profit distribution to the Confederation and cantons, as in previous years, amounts to CHF 2,500 million. The dividend to shareholders remains unchanged at CHF 1.5 million, subject to the approval of the General Meeting of Shareholders. Gold price rise and exchange rate losses The sharp rise in the gold price resulted in significant valuation gains of CHF 5,827 million. Gold holdings remained unchanged at 1,040 tonnes. The sharp appreciation of the Swiss franc, particularly against the euro, US dollar and pound sterling, led to exchange rate losses of CHF 32.7 billion at the parent company. Interest earnings on foreign currency positions amounted to CHF 5.1 billion. Equity-type securities benefited from a favourable stock market environment and gained CHF 1.5 billion in value. The final net result for the parent company from foreign currency positions in 2010, including other income statement components (including interest expenses), amounted to CHF 26.5 billion (2009: CHF 2.6 billion). Investments in Swiss francs yielded an income of CHF 71 million (2009: CHF 281 million). Interest-bearing assets in Swiss francs declined significantly, since the SNB conducted hardly any liquidity-providing repo auctions after June By contrast, interest-bearing liabilities in Swiss francs increased, due to debt certificates issued by the SNB and liquidity-absorbing repo transactions.
2 3 March Stabilisation fund The stabilisation fund continued to pursue its liquidation strategy. In the year under review, the SNB loan fell from almost CHF 21 billion to less than CHF 12 billion. During the same period, the additional contingent liabilities declined from CHF 3.9 billion to CHF 2.0 billion. Should financing needs arise, the contingent liabilities would trigger lines of credit with the SNB if the financing needs cannot be covered by the funds available in the stabilisation fund. For 2010, the stabilisation fund recorded a profit of CHF 2.6 billion, or USD 2.5 billion. Its equity now amounts to CHF 2.0 billion, or USD 2.1 billion, following over-indebtedness of CHF 482 million, or USD 418 million, at the end of The equity is available as primary loss protection to cover possible future losses. Consolidated financial statements The inclusion of the stabilisation fund accounts in the consolidated financial statements improved the consolidated result by CHF 1,636.2 million compared to the parent company result. Detailed information is provided in item no. 4. Distribution to the Confederation and the cantons The allocation of CHF 724 million (2009: CHF 3,055 million) to the provisions for currency reserves, the distribution to the Confederation and the cantons, and the payment of CHF 1.5 million in annual dividends will lead to a distribution reserve of minus CHF 5 billion. The fact that the value of the distribution reserve has become negative necessitates a review of the distribution agreement, which will be carried out by the SNB and the Federal Department of Finance over the course of this year. The comprehensive financial report will be published on 7 April 2011 as part of the SNB Annual Report.

The option premia received in 2008 and 2009 serve as primary loss protection. They were paid in to the stabilisation fund as equity. 4 If UBS exercises its right to repurchase the stabilisation fund once the SNB loan has been fully repaid. 5 The recognition of the warrant in the income statement was reversed in The contractual provisions specify that UBS can repurchase the stabilisation fund after the SNB loan has been paid in full. UBS would have to pay the SNB a sum of USD 1 billion plus half of the fund s net asset value (i.e. equity) in excess of this amount. The other half would accrue to UBS. The SNB would benefit to the amount of USD 1,555 million and UBS to the amount of USD 555 million from the fund s net asset value as at the balance sheet date.
