Each share award granted entitles the holder of the award to receive one Group share, subject to service conditions. Share awards vest over three years with one third of the share awards vesting on each of the three anniversaries of the grant date (ratable vesting), with the exception of awards granted to individuals classified as risk managers or senior managers under the UK PRA Remuneration Code or similar regulations in other jurisdictions. Share awards granted to risk managers vest over five years with one fifth of the award vesting on each of the five anniversaries of the grant date, while share awards granted to senior managers vest over five years commencing on the third anniversary of the grant date, with one fifth of the award vesting on each of the third to seventh anniversaries of the grant date. Share awards are expensed over the service period of the awards. The value of the share awards is solely dependent on the Group share price at the time of delivery. The Group's share awards include other awards, such as blocked shares and special awards, which may be granted to new employees. Other share awards entitle the holder to receive one Group share and are generally subject to continued employment with the Group, contain restrictive covenants and cancellation provisions and generally vest between zero and five years. In order to comply with Capital Requirements Directive IV requirements, employees who hold key roles in respect of certain Group subsidiaries receive shares that are subject to transfer restrictions for 50% of the amount that would have been paid to them in cash. These shares are vested at the time of grant but remain blocked, that is, subject to transfer restrictions, for six months to one year from the date of grant, depending on the location. Managing directors and all material risk takers and controllers (employees whose activities are considered to have a potentially material impact on the Group's risk profile) received a portion of their deferred variable compensation in the form of performance share awards. Performance share awards are similar to share awards, except that the full balance of outstanding performance share awards, including those awarded in prior years, are subject to performance-based malus provisions. Performance share awards are subject to a negative adjustment in the event of a divisional loss by the division in which the employees worked as of December 31, 2020, or a negative ROE of the Group, whichever results in a larger adjustment. For employees in corporate functions and the Asset Resolution Unit, the negative adjustment only applies in the event of a negative ROE of the Group and is not linked to the performance of the divisions. The basis for the ROE calculation may vary from year to year, depending on the Compensation Committee’s determination for the year in which the performance shares are granted. CCA were granted in February 2021, 2020 and 2019 to managing directors and directors as part of the 2020, 2019 and 2018 deferred variable compensation and have rights and risks similar to those of certain contingent capital instruments issued by the Group in the market. CCA are scheduled to vest on the third anniversary of the grant date, other than those granted to individuals classified as risk managers or senior managers under the UK PRA Remuneration Code or similar regulations in other jurisdictions, where CCA vest on the fifth and seventh anniversaries of the grant date, respectively, and will be expensed over the vesting period. CCA generally provide a conditional right to receive semi-annual cash payments of interest equivalents until settled, with rates being dependent upon the vesting period and currency of denomination. CCA granted in 2021, 2020 and 2019 that vest five or seven years from the date of grant are not eligible for semi-annual cash payments of interest equivalents. CCA granted to certain regulated employees that vest over three years are not eligible for semi-annual cash payments of interest equivalents. p CCA granted in 2021 that are denominated in US dollars and vest three years from the date of grant receive interest equivalents at a rate of 3.60%, per annum plus the daily compounded (spread exclusive) US dollar Secured Overnight Financing Rate (SOFR); p CCA granted in 2020 and 2019 that are denominated in US dollars and vest three years from the date of grant receive interest equivalents at a rate of 3.77% and 4.46% respectively, per annum over the six-month US dollar LIBOR; p CCA granted in 2021 that are denominated in Swiss francs and vest three years from the date of grant receive interest equivalents at a rate of 3.06%, per annum plus the daily compounded (spread exclusive) Swiss franc Swiss Average Rate Overnight (SARON); p CCA granted in 2020 and 2019 that are denominated in Swiss francs and vest three years from the date of grant receive interest equivalents at a rate of 3.29% and 3.73%, respectively, per annum over the six-month Swiss franc LIBOR; and p The semi-annual interest equivalent cash payments calculation cycle with effect from February 2021 will be based on the SOFR for CCA denominated in US dollars and the SARON for CCA denominated in Swiss francs. The rates were set in line with market conditions at the time of grant and existing high-trigger and low-trigger contingent capital instruments that the Group has issued. For CCA granted in February 2021, employees who received compensation in Swiss francs received CCA denominated in Swiss francs and all other employees received CCA denominated in US dollars. As CCA qualify as going concern loss-absorbing capital of the Group, the timing and form of distribution upon settlement is subject to approval by FINMA. At settlement, employees will receive either a contingent capital instrument or a cash payment based on the fair value of the CCA. The fair value will be determined by the Group. In the case of a cash settlement, the CCA award will be converted into the local currency of each respective employee. CCA have loss-absorbing features such that prior to settlement, the principal amount of the CCA would be written down to zero and forfeited if any of the following trigger events were to occur: p the Group's reported common equity tier 1 (CET1) ratio falls below 7%; or p FINMA determines that cancellation of the CCA and other similar contingent capital instruments is necessary, or that the Group requires public sector capital support, in either case to prevent it from becoming insolvent or otherwise failing. Deferred cash awards include certain special awards as well as voluntary deferred compensation plans and employee investment plans. For certain special awards, compensation expense was primarily driven by their vesting schedule; for other deferred cash awards, compensation expense was driven by mark to market and performance adjustments, as the majority of the awards are fully vested. The Group granted deferred fixed cash compensation during 2020, 2019 and 2018 of CHF 120 million, CHF 108 million and CHF 98 million, respectively, to certain employees in the Americas. This compensation has been expensed in the Investment Bank and International Wealth Management divisions over a three-year vesting period from the grant date. Amortization of this compensation in 2020 totaled CHF 112 million, of which CHF 65 million was related to awards granted in 2020. In February 2021, certain managing directors and directors in International Wealth Management were granted CHF 59 million of upfront cash awards as part of the cash component of their 2020 variable compensation. During 2020 and 2019, the Group granted upfront cash awards of CHF 146 million and CHF 47 million, respectively. These awards are subject to repayment (clawback) by the employee in the event of voluntary resignation, termination for cause or in connection with other specified events or conditions within three years of the award grant. The amount subject to repayment is reduced in equal monthly installments during the three-year period following the grant date. The expense recognition will occur over the three-year vesting period, subject to service conditions. Amortization of this compensation in 2020 totaled CHF 79 million. The Group granted deferred cash and stock retention awards during 2020, 2019 and 2018 of CHF 40 million, CHF 40 million and CHF 25 million, respectively. These awards are expensed over the applicable vesting period from the grant date. Amortization of these awards in 2020 totaled CHF 43 million, of which CHF 13 million was related to awards granted in 2020. The BVG 2015 tables were used, which included final CMI projections, with a long-term rate of improvement of 1.25% per annum. 95% of Self-Administered Pension Scheme (SAPS) S2 light tables were used, which included final CMI projections, with a long-term rate of improvement of 1.5% per annum. Certain of the Group’s subsidiaries are subject to legal restrictions governing the amount of dividends they can pay (for example, pursuant to corporate law as defined by the Swiss Code of Obligations). Under the Swiss Code of Obligations, dividends may be paid out only if and to the extent the corporation has distributable profits from previous business years, or if the free reserves of the corporation are sufficient to allow distribution of a dividend. In addition, at least 5% of the annual net profits must be retained and booked as general legal reserves for so long as these reserves amount to less than 20% of the paid-in share capital. The reserves currently exceed this 20% threshold. Furthermore, dividends may be paid out only after shareholder approval at the Annual General Meeting. Certain leases include i) termination options that allow lessees to terminate the leases within three months of the commencement date, with a notice period of 30 days; ii) termination options that allow the Group to terminate the lease but do not provide the lessee with the same option; iii) termination penalties; iv) options to prepay the payments for the remaining lease term; or v) options that permit the lessee to purchase the leased asset at market value or at the greater of market value and the net present value of the remaining payments. During 2020, the Group entered into one sale-leaseback transaction, with a lease term of one year. During 2019, the Group entered into 4 sale-leaseback transactions, with lease terms ranging from 5 to 10 years. During 2018, the Group entered into one sale-leaseback transaction with a lease term of ten years. Following the completion of the first step of the combination of the Group’s open architecture investment fund platform Credit Suisse InvestLab AG (InvestLab) and Allfunds Group in September 2019, the Group successfully completed the second and final step of the combination in March 2020 with the transfer of related distribution agreements to Allfunds Group. Other revenues in 2020 included CHF 268 million from this second closing, reflected in net revenues of the Swiss Universal Bank, International Wealth Management and Asia Pacific divisions. The number of share awards granted to employees was generally determined by dividing the deferred component of variable compensation being granted as share awards by the average price of a Group share over the ten consecutive trading days which ended on March 4, 2021. The fair value of each share award was CHF 12.59, the Group share price on the grant date. The majority of share awards granted include the right to receive dividend equivalents on vested shares. The number of performance share awards granted to employees was generally determined by dividing the deferred component of variable compensation being granted as performance share awards by the average price of a Group share over the ten consecutive trading days which ended on March 4, 2021. The fair value of each performance share award was CHF 12.59, the Group share price on the grant date. The majority of performance share awards granted include the right to receive dividend equivalents on vested shares.

In the fourth quarter of 2020, York Capital Management (York) informed its investors of a significant change in strategy. As a result, York will focus on longer duration assets such as private equity, private debt and collateralized loan obligations, while winding down its European hedge funds business and primarily managing internal capital in its multi-strategy fund. York’s Asia Pacific business is expected to be spun off as a new and separate hedge fund in 2021, in which the Group intends to have a continuing interest. As a result of this announcement, the Group recorded an impairment of CHF 414 million to the valuation of its noncontrolling interest that it has owned since 2010, recognized in other revenues. During 2020, the Bank entered into one sale-leaseback transaction with a lease term of one year. During 2019, the Bank entered into 4 sale-leaseback transactions with lease terms ranging from 5 to 10 years. During 2018, the Bank entered into one sale-leaseback transaction with a lease term of ten years. On March 1, 2021, the boards of the supply chain finance funds managed by certain Group subsidiaries decided to suspend redemptions and subscriptions of those funds to protect the interests of the funds’ investors. On March 4, 2021, the boards decided to terminate those funds and proceed to their liquidation. Those decisions were based on concerns that a substantial part of the funds’ assets was subject to considerable valuation uncertainty. Credit Suisse Asset Management (Schweiz) AG (CSAM) acts as the portfolio manager of these supply chain finance funds. Redemptions and subscriptions of certain other funds managed by CSAM or CSAM subsidiaries that invest in part in these supply chain finance funds have also been suspended. The assets held by the supply chain finance funds, largely consisting of notes backed by existing and future receivables, were originated and structured by Greensill Capital (UK) Limited or one of its affiliates (Greensill Capital). The last published net asset value of the supply chain finance funds in late February was approximately USD 10 billion in the aggregate. Initial redemption payments totaling USD 3.1 billion across the supply chain finance funds were made to their investors beginning on March 8, 2021. The portfolio manager continues to work to liquidate the remaining assets in the four funds as the receivables comprising the funds’ assets mature. Greensill Capital filed for insolvency in the UK on March 8, 2021, and the portfolio manager is working closely with the administrators of Greensill Capital, Grant Thornton, and with other parties to facilitate this process. However, there remains considerable uncertainty regarding the valuation of a significant part of the remaining assets, including the fact that the portfolio manager has been informed that certain of the notes underlying the funds will not be repaid when they fall due, and the amounts that ultimately will be distributed to investors in respect of the funds. Group subsidiaries also have collateralized bridge lending and other direct and indirect exposures to Greensill Capital, including exposures relating to certain fund-linked products. With regard to the outstanding collateralized bridge loan of USD 140 million, USD 50 million was recently repaid by the administrators of Greensill Capital, reducing the outstanding amount of the loan to USD 90 million. The Group continues to analyze these matters, including with the assistance of external counsel and other experts. The Board of Directors has also initiated an investigation of these matters. It has been decided that as of March 10, 2021, three senior CSAM employees will not be performing their roles for the time being. The payout and vesting of variable compensation of a number of senior employees involved in these matters, up to and including Executive Board members, has been suspended as a measure to ensure that the Group can reconsider the variable compensation for 2020 and are able to apply malus or clawback, if appropriate. A number of regulatory investigations and actions have been initiated or are being considered in respect of these matters, including by FINMA, one of which is the agreement to a Pillar 2 buffer with Credit Suisse. Furthermore, certain investors have already threatened litigation and, as this matter develops, Credit Suisse may become subject to litigation, disputes or other actions. The priority for Credit Suisse remains the recovery of funds for CSAM’s investors, and the portfolio manager is working closely with the administrators to facilitate this process. Credit Suisse notes that it is reasonably possible that Credit Suisse will incur a loss in respect of these matters, albeit that given the early stage of this process, it is not yet possible to estimate the size of such a reasonably possible loss. However, the ultimate cost to the Group of resolving these matters may be material to its operating results. Credit Suisse might also suffer reputational harm associated with these matters that might cause client departures or loss of assets under management. 2021-03-01 0001159510 2020-01-01 2020-12-31
