The Federal Administrative Court’s ruling of 03 December 2019 concerns an appeal lodged by BSI against the FINMA decision of 23 May 2016, which related to a BSI legacy case regarding the IMDB matter originating in the period of 2011 to 2015 predating the acquisition of BSI by EFG in 2016. The court confirmed FINMA’s determination of the occurrence of violations of supervisory provisions by
BSI but vacated the part of FINMA’s ruling which set the disgorgement at CHF 95 million, and remanded that aspect of the decision to FINMA for further proceedings.
EFG’s financial results will not be impacted by this court proceeding. The final purchase price of EFG’s acquisition of BSI accounted for a respective provision. Any modification in the amount of disgorgement would be neutral to EFG’s financial results.
