Thomas Gottstein, Chief Executive Officer of Credit Suisse Group AG, commented: “Our results for the first quarter of 2021 have been significantly impacted by a CHF 4.4 bn charge related to a US-based hedge fund. The loss we report this quarter, because of this matter, is unacceptable. Together with the Board of Directors, we have taken significant steps to address this situation as well as the supply chain finance funds matter. Among other decisive actions, we have made changes in our senior business and control functions; we have enhanced our risk review across the bank; we have launched independent investigations into these matters by external advisors, supervised by a special committee of the Board; and we have taken several capital-related actions. We will work to ensure Credit Suisse emerges stronger. However, it is also important to recognize that our underlying 1Q21 financial performance2, across all divisions, was strong, supported by solid results in Switzerland, and strong growth in APAC and investment banking. We expect that our successful MCN placement today will further strengthen our balance sheet and enable us to support the momentum in our core franchises. Our underlying result is a testament to the earnings power of Credit Suisse and to the commitment of our employees. And it makes it all the more important that we quickly and decisively resolve the issues we are currently dealing with.”

SUMMARY
1Q21 Results
As per our trading updates in March and April, we absorbed several items during the quarter that had a considerable impact on the reported results. We recorded a pre-tax loss of CHF 757 mn in 1Q21 and a net loss attributable to shareholders of CHF 252 mn, including a pre-tax charge of CHF 4.4 bn relating to the US-based hedge fund matter.4 The underlying business results5 have been strong with adjusted net revenues excluding significant items and the US-based hedge-fund matter* were CHF 7.4 bn, up 35% year on year, and higher adjusted pre-tax income, excluding significant items and the US-based hedge-fund matter*, of CHF 3.6 bn, up 280%. As per close of business on April 21, 2021, we have now exited 97% of the related positions and expect to take an additional loss in 2Q21 of approximately CHF 0.6 bn in connection with the US-based hedge fund matter.

In our Wealth Management-related businesses, we delivered strong growth across our franchise and reported net revenues of CHF 3.9 bn, up 3% year on year, with transaction-based revenues up 18%, recurring commissions & fees up 3% and lower net interest income, down 9%. Adjusted total Wealth-Management-related net revenues, excluding significant items*, of CHF 3.7 bn were up 7% year on year.

Our Investment Bank continued to demonstrate momentum as revenues increased to USD 3.9 bn, up 80% year on year, benefitting from a strong performance across all products: Fixed Income Sales & Trading was up 29% year on year, Equity Sales & Trading was up 23%, and Capital Markets & Advisory6 was up significantly. Global Trading Solutions (GTS), our collaboration between the IB and our wealth management businesses, also recorded increased net revenues, up 10% year on year, underlining the strength of our strategy as we continue to drive collaboration across divisions and business areas.

Operating expenses for the Group of CHF 3.9 bn decreased by 2% year on year, mainly reflecting lower compensation expenses; on an adjusted* basis, operating expenses decreased by 3%. Provision for credit losses in 1Q21 increased significantly year on year, and quarter on quarter, due to the US-based hedge fund matter. We recorded CHF 4.4 bn of provision for credit losses, compared to CHF 568 mn in 1Q20 and CHF 138 mn in 4Q20. The vast majority of the quarter’s provisions are reflected in the IB and relate to this specific matter.

The Group recorded NNA of CHF 28.4 bn in 1Q21, this compares to CHF 5.8 bn in 1Q20 and CHF 8.4 bn in 4Q20. Strong asset gathering across our wealth management businesses with Swiss Universal Bank (SUB) Private Clients recording CHF 2.2 bn, International Wealth Management (IWM) Private Banking recording CHF 7.2 bn and APAC recording USD 5.4 bn. Group Assets under Management (AuM) totaled CHF 1.6 trn at the end of 1Q21, up from CHF 1.5 trn at the end of 4Q20.

As of the end of 1Q21, our CET1 ratio was 12.2%. For 1Q21, CHF 5.8 bn in risk-weighted assets were related to our remaining exposure in the US-based hedge fund matter, and a Pillar 2 capital add-on of CHF 1.9 bn relating to the supply chain finance funds matter was required by FINMA. During 2Q21, as we exit the hedge fund-related positions, the amount of the associated risk-weighted assets will be reduced accordingly. We would expect the required risk-weighted assets to be reduced to zero during 2Q21.

On April 22, 2021, we announced an offering of two series of mandatory convertible notes (MCNs), Series A MCNs and Series B MCNs, which will be convertible into 100 million shares and 103 million shares of Credit Suisse Group AG, respectively. The offering is expected to further strengthen our capital position and to close on or around May 12, 2021.

The shares of Credit Suisse Group AG underlying the Series A MCNs will be issued from Credit Suisse Group AG’s current conditional capital. The shares of Credit Suisse Group AG underlying the Series B MCNs will be issued from Credit Suisse Group AG's current authorized capital. As the full amount of the current authorized capital is expected to be utilized for such issuance, the Board has decided to withdraw, at the Annual General Meeting (AGM) 2021, its proposal for a moderate increase and the extension of the authorized capital.

CAPITAL RETURNS TO SHAREHOLDERS
As previously announced on April 6, 2021, the Board of Directors amended its dividend proposal to shareholders at the AGM on April 30, 2021. It is proposing to distribute an ordinary total dividend of CHF 0.10 gross per registered share, half from retained earnings and half out of the capital contribution reserves. This proposal will help to preserve our strong capital positon. Following the completion of share buybacks in 1Q21 of CHF 305 mn of shares, we have suspended the share buyback program. Subject to 2021 financial performance, the Board of Directors would intend to restore the dividend in 2021 before any resumption of share buybacks.

 
OUTLOOK
Overall, we would expect market volumes to return to lower, and more normal, levels in the coming quarters. We expect a residual impact of approximately CHF 0.6 bn from the US-based hedge fund matter in 2Q21, as we have now exited 97% of the related positions.
 
In Wealth Management, we anticipate broadly stable net interest income and improving recurring commissions and fees benefiting from higher levels of AuM. For the Investment Bank, we would expect the second quarter to reflect a slowdown in market activity, as well as the adverse impact from the US-based hedge fund matter, particularly from the resizing of our Prime Services business.
 
Signs of recovery in the global economy could allow us to progressively release part of our allowance for credit losses under the CECL accounting methodology that was built in the early months of the COVID-19 crisis last year. Additionally, we expect the effective tax rate to remain significantly elevated for the remainder of the year. Including the benefit of the MCN-related capital raise as well as other proactive capital actions, we intend to achieve a CET1 ratio of approximately 13% and a minimum 4% CET1 leverage ratio.

Credit Suisse is fully reserved and no further charge will be incurred. The settlement remains subject to approval through a separate court proceeding to be brought by the trustee. This resolution also removes two of the largest exposures remaining on Credit Suisse’s legacy RMBS docket.

Media Release
Zurich, April 22, 2021
 
 
 
Presentation slides, which have been distributed simultaneously, contain more comprehensive information about our results and operations for the reporting quarter, as well as important information about our reporting methodology and some of the terms used in these documents. The complete 1Q21 Earnings Release and 1Q21 Results Presentation slides are not incorporated by reference into this document.

Credit Suisse has not finalized its 1Q21 Financial Report and Credit Suisse’s independent registered public accounting firm has not completed its review of the condensed consolidated financial statements (unaudited) for the period. Accordingly, the financial information contained in this document is subject to completion of quarter-end procedures, which may result in changes to that information.

We may not achieve all of the expected benefits of our strategic initiatives. Factors beyond our control, including but not limited to the market and economic conditions (including macroeconomic and other challenges and uncertainties, for example, resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic), changes in laws, rules or regulations and other challenges discussed in our public filings, could limit our ability to achieve some or all of the expected benefits of these initiatives.

In particular, the terms “Estimate”, “Illustrative”, “Ambition”, “Objective”, “Outlook” and “Goal” are not intended to be viewed as targets or projections, nor are they considered to be Key Performance Indicators. All such estimates, illustrations, ambitions, objectives, outlooks and goals are subject to a large number of inherent risks, assumptions and uncertainties, many of which are completely outside of our control. These risks, assumptions and uncertainties include, but are not limited to, general market conditions, market volatility, interest rate volatility and levels, global and regional economic conditions, challenges and uncertainties resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic, political uncertainty, changes in tax policies, regulatory changes, changes in levels of client activity as a result of any of the foregoing and other factors. Accordingly, this information should not be relied on for any purpose. We do not intend to update these estimates, illustrations, ambitions, objectives, outlooks or goals.

In preparing this document, management has made estimates and assumptions that affect the numbers presented. Actual results may differ. Annualized numbers do not take into account variations in operating results, seasonality and other factors and may not be indicative of actual, full-year results. Figures throughout this document may also be subject to rounding adjustments. All opinions and views constitute judgments as of the date of writing without regard to the date on which the reader may receive or access the information. This information is subject to change at any time without notice and we do not intend to update this information.

Return on tangible equity, a non-GAAP financial measure, is calculated as annualized net income attributable to shareholders divided by average tangible shareholders’ equity. Tangible shareholders’ equity, a non-GAAP financial measure, is calculated by deducting goodwill and other intangible assets from total shareholders’ equity as presented in our balance sheet. Management believes that return on tangible equity is meaningful as it is a measure used and relied upon by industry analysts and investors to assess valuations and capital adequacy. For end-1Q21, tangible shareholders’ equity excluded goodwill of CHF 4,644 mn and other intangible assets of CHF 239 mn from total shareholders’ equity of CHF 44,590 mn as presented in our balance sheet. For end-1Q20, tangible shareholders’ equity excluded goodwill of CHF 4,604 mn and other intangible assets of CHF 279 mn from total shareholders’ equity of CHF 48,675 mn as presented in our balance sheet.

Prior to 3Q20, regulatory capital was calculated as the worst of 10% of RWA and 3.5% of leverage exposure, and return on regulatory capital (a non-GAAP financial measure) was calculated using income / (loss) after tax and assumed a tax rate of 30%. In 3Q20, we updated our calculation approach, following which regulatory capital is calculated as the average of 10% of RWA and 3.5% of leverage exposure, and return on regulatory capital (a non-GAAP financial measure) is calculated using income / (loss) after tax and assumes a tax rate of 30% for periods prior to 2020 and 25% from 2020 onward. For periods in 2020, for purposes of calculating Group return on regulatory capital, leverage exposure excludes cash held at central banks, after adjusting for the dividend paid in 2020. For the Investment Bank division, return on regulatory capital is based on US dollar denominated numbers. Adjusted return on regulatory capital is calculated using adjusted results, applying the same methodology to calculate return on regulatory capital.

Foreign exchange impact is calculated by converting the CHF amount of net revenues, provision for credit losses and operating expenses for 2021 back to the original currency on a monthly basis at the respective spot foreign exchange rate. The respective amounts are then converted back to CHF applying the average 2020 foreign exchange rate from the period against which the foreign exchange impact is measured. Average foreign exchange rates apply a straight line average of monthly foreign exchange rates for major currencies.

Client business volume includes assets under management, custody assets and net loans.

Credit Suisse is subject to the Basel III framework, as implemented in Switzerland, as well as Swiss legislation and regulations for systemically important banks, which include capital, liquidity, leverage and large exposure requirements and rules for emergency plans designed to maintain systemically relevant functions in the event of threatened insolvency. Credit Suisse has adopted the Bank for International Settlements (BIS) leverage ratio framework, as issued by the Basel Committee on Banking Supervision (BCBS) and implemented in Switzerland by the Swiss Financial Market Supervisory Authority FINMA (FINMA).

Unless otherwise noted, all CET1 capital, CET1 ratio, Tier-1 leverage ratio, risk-weighted assets and leverage exposure figures in this document are as of the end of the respective period and, for periods prior to 2019, on a “look-through” basis.

Unless otherwise noted, leverage exposure is based on the BIS leverage ratio framework and consists of period-end balance sheet assets and prescribed regulatory adjustments. The tier 1 leverage ratio and CET1 leverage ratio are calculated as BIS tier 1 capital and CET1 capital, respectively, divided by period end leverage exposure. Swiss leverage ratios are measured on the same period-end basis as the leverage exposure for the BIS leverage ratio. Unless otherwise noted, for periods in 2020, leverage exposure excludes cash held at central banks, after adjusting for the dividend paid in 2020.

References to Wealth Management-related mean SUB, IWM and APAC or their combined results. References to global investment banking mean the Investment Bank, APAC advisory and underwriting as well as M&A, DCM and ECM in SUB C&IC. References to Global Trading Solutions, prior to 3Q20, mean the combination of ITS and APAC Solutions.

Such forward-looking statements may include, without limitation, statements relating to the following:
our plans, targets or goals;
our future economic performance or prospects;
the potential effect on our future performance of certain contingencies; and
assumptions underlying any such statements.
Words such as “believes,” “anticipates,” “expects,” “intends” and “plans” and similar expressions are intended to identify forward-looking statements but are not the exclusive means of identifying such statements. We do not intend to update these forward-looking statements.
By their very nature, forward-looking statements involve inherent risks and uncertainties, both general and specific, and risks exist that predictions, forecasts, projections and other outcomes described or implied in forward-looking statements will not be achieved. We caution you that a number of important factors could cause results to differ materially from the plans, targets, goals, expectations, estimates and intentions expressed in such forward-looking statements and that the COVID-19 pandemic creates significantly greater uncertainty about forward-looking statements in addition to the factors that generally affect our business. These factors include:
the ability to maintain sufficient liquidity and access capital markets;
market volatility and interest rate fluctuations and developments affecting interest rate levels, including the persistence of a low or negative interest rate environment;
the strength of the global economy in general and the strength of the economies of the countries in which we conduct our operations, in particular the risk of negative impacts of COVID-19 on the global economy and financial markets and the risk of continued slow economic recovery or downturn in the EU, the US or other developed countries or in emerging markets in 2021 and beyond;
the emergence of widespread health emergencies, infectious diseases or pandemics, such as COVID-19, and the actions that may be taken by governmental authorities to contain the outbreak or to counter its impact;
potential risks and uncertainties relating to the severity of impacts from COVID-19 and the duration of the pandemic, including potential material adverse effects on our business, financial condition and results of operations;
the direct and indirect impacts of deterioration or slow recovery in residential and commercial real estate markets;
adverse rating actions by credit rating agencies in respect of us, sovereign issuers, structured credit products or other credit-related exposures;
the ability to achieve our strategic goals, including those related to our targets, ambitions and financial goals;
the ability of counterparties to meet their obligations to us and the adequacy of our allowance for credit losses;
the effects of, and changes in, fiscal, monetary, exchange rate, trade and tax policies;
the effects of currency fluctuations, including the related impact on our business, financial condition and results of operations due to moves in foreign exchange rates;
political, social and environmental developments, including war, civil unrest or terrorist activity and climate change;
the ability to appropriately address social, environmental and sustainability concerns that may arise from our business activities;
the effects of, and the uncertainty arising from, the UK’s withdrawal from the EU;
the possibility of foreign exchange controls, expropriation, nationalization or confiscation of assets in countries in which we conduct our operations;
operational factors such as systems failure, human error, or the failure to implement procedures properly;
the risk of cyber attacks, information or security breaches or technology failures on our reputation, business or operations, the risk of which is increased while large portions of our employees work remotely;
the adverse resolution of litigation, regulatory proceedings and other contingencies;
actions taken by regulators with respect to our business and practices and possible resulting changes to our business organization, practices and policies in countries in which we conduct our operations;
the effects of changes in laws, regulations or accounting or tax standards, policies or practices in countries in which we conduct our operations;
the expected discontinuation of LIBOR and other interbank offered rates and the transition to alternative reference rates;
the potential effects of changes in our legal entity structure;
competition or changes in our competitive position in geographic and business areas in which we conduct our operations;
the ability to retain and recruit qualified personnel;
the ability to maintain our reputation and promote our brand;
the ability to increase market share and control expenses;
technological changes instituted by us, our counterparties or competitors;

 Disclaimer (1/2)  2  April 22, 2021  Credit Suisse has not finalized its 1Q21 Financial Report and Credit Suisse's independent registered public accounting firm has not completed its review of the condensed consolidated financial statements for the period. Accordingly, the financial information contained in this presentation is subject to completion of quarter-end procedures, which may result in changes to that information.This material does not purport to contain all of the information that you may wish to consider. This material is not to be relied upon as such or used in substitution for the exercise of independent judgment. Cautionary statement regarding forward-looking statements This presentation contains forward-looking statements that involve inherent risks and uncertainties, and we might not be able to achieve the predictions, forecasts, projections and other outcomes we describe or imply in forward-looking statements. A number of important factors could cause results to differ materially from the plans, targets, goals, expectations, estimates and intentions we express in these forward-looking statements, including those we identify in "Risk factors” in our Annual Report on Form 20-F for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2020 and “Credit Suisse – Risk factor” and the “Cautionary statement regarding forward-looking information" in our 1Q21 Earnings Release published on April 22, 2021 and filed with the US Securities and Exchange Commission, and in other public filings and press releases. We do not intend to update these forward-looking statements. In particular, the terms “Estimate”, “Illustrative”, “Ambition”, “Objective”, “Outlook” and “Goal” are not intended to be viewed as targets or projections, nor are they considered to be Key Performance Indicators. All such estimates, illustrations, ambitions, objectives, outlooks and goals are subject to a large number of inherent risks, assumptions and uncertainties, many of which are completely outside of our control. These risks, assumptions and uncertainties include, but are not limited to, general market conditions, market volatility, interest rate volatility and levels, global and regional economic conditions, challenges and uncertainties resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic, political uncertainty, changes in tax policies, regulatory changes, changes in levels of client activity as a result of any of the foregoing and other factors. Accordingly, this information should not be relied on for any purpose. We do not intend to update these estimates, illustrations, ambitions, objectives, outlooks or goals. We may not achieve the benefits of our strategic initiativesWe may not achieve all of the expected benefits of our strategic initiatives. Factors beyond our control, including but not limited to the market and economic conditions (including macroeconomic and other challenges and uncertainties, for example, resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic), changes in laws, rules or regulations and other challenges discussed in our public filings, could limit our ability to achieve some or all of the expected benefits of these initiatives. Estimates and assumptionsIn preparing this presentation, management has made estimates and assumptions that affect the numbers presented. Actual results may differ. Annualized numbers do not take into account variations in operating results, seasonality and other factors and may not be indicative of actual, full-year results. Figures throughout this presentation may also be subject to rounding adjustments. All opinions and views constitute judgments as of the date of writing without regard to the date on which the reader may receive or access the information. This information is subject to change at any time without notice and we do not intend to update this information.RestatementAs of 3Q20, financial information reflects the new divisional reporting structure and management responsibilities announced on July 30, 2020 and updates to certain calculations and allocations. Prior periods have been restated to conform to the current presentation. In light of the restructuring announced on July 30, 2020 and several significant items impacting results in prior periods, we intend to focus on adjusted numbers, excluding significant items in our discussion of results until the restructuring is completed. 
 

 Disclaimer (2/2)  3  April 22, 2021  Statement regarding non-GAAP financial measuresThis presentation contains non-GAAP financial measures, including results excluding certain items included in our reported results as well as return on regulatory capital and return on tangible equity and tangible book value per share (which are both based on tangible shareholders’ equity). Further details and information needed to reconcile such non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable measures under US GAAP can be found in this presentation in the Appendix, which is available on our website at www.credit-suisse.com.Our estimates, ambitions, objectives and targets often include metrics that are non-GAAP financial measures and are unaudited. A reconciliation of the estimates, ambitions, objectives and targets to the nearest GAAP measures is unavailable without unreasonable efforts. Results excluding certain items included in our reported results do not include items such as goodwill impairment, major litigation provisions, real estate gains, impacts from foreign exchange and other revenue and expense items included in our reported results, all of which are unavailable on a prospective basis. Return on tangible equity is based on tangible shareholders’ equity, a non-GAAP financial measure also known as tangible book value, which is calculated by deducting goodwill and other intangible assets from total shareholders’ equity as presented in our balance sheet, both of which are unavailable on a prospective basis. Return on regulatory capital (a non-GAAP financial measure) is calculated using income / (loss) after tax and assumes a tax rate of 25% and capital allocated based on the average of 10% of RWA and 3.5% of leverage exposure; the essential components of this calculation are unavailable on a prospective basis. Such estimates, ambitions, objectives and targets are calculated in a manner that is consistent with the accounting policies applied by us in preparing our financial statements.Statement regarding capital, liquidity and leverageCredit Suisse is subject to the Basel III framework, as implemented in Switzerland, as well as Swiss legislation and regulations for systemically important banks, which include capital, liquidity, leverage and large exposure requirements and rules for emergency plans designed to maintain systemically relevant functions in the event of threatened insolvency. Credit Suisse has adopted the Bank for International Settlements (BIS) leverage ratio framework, as issued by the Basel Committee on Banking Supervision (BCBS) and implemented in Switzerland by the Swiss Financial Market Supervisory Authority FINMA.Unless otherwise noted, leverage exposure is based on the BIS leverage ratio framework and consists of period-end balance sheet assets and prescribed regulatory adjustments. The tier 1 leverage ratio and CET1 leverage ratio are calculated as BIS tier 1 capital and CET1 capital, respectively, divided by period-end leverage exposure. Swiss leverage ratios are measured on the same period-end basis as the leverage exposure for the BIS leverage ratio.SourcesCertain material in this presentation has been prepared by Credit Suisse on the basis of publicly available information, internally developed data and other third-party sources believed to be reliable. Credit Suisse has not sought to independently verify information obtained from public and third-party sources and makes no representations or warranties as to accuracy, completeness or reliability of such information.Mandatory Convertible NotesThese materials are not an offer to sell securities or the solicitation of any offer to buy securities, nor shall there be any offer of securities, in any jurisdiction in which such offer or sale would be unlawful.These materials are not an offer of securities for sale in the United States or to U.S. persons (“U.S. persons”) as defined in Regulation S under the U.S. Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “U.S. Securities Act”). The mandatory convertible notes described in these materials and the shares of Credit Suisse Group AG issuable on their conversion have not been and will not be registered under the U.S. Securities Act and may not be offered or sold in the United States or to, or for the account or benefit of, U.S. persons, absent registration or an applicable exemption from registration under the U.S. Securities Act.

 Notes  46  April 22, 2021  General notesThroughout the presentation rounding differences may occurUnless otherwise noted, all CET1 capital, CET1 ratio, Tier 1 leverage ratio, risk-weighted assets and leverage exposure figures shown in this presentation are as of the end of the respective period and, for periods prior to 2019, on a “look-through” basisBanking means capital markets & advisoryGross and net margins are shown in basis pointsGross margin = net revenues annualized / average AuM; net margin = pre-tax income annualized / average AuM. Net margin excluding certain significant items, as disclosed herein, is calculated excluding those items applying the same methodologyMandate penetration reflects advisory and discretionary mandate volumes as a percentage of AuM, excluding those from the external asset manager businessUnless otherwise noted, FX impact is calculated by converting the CHF amount of net revenues, provision for credit losses and operating expenses for 2021 back to the original currency on a monthly basis at the respective spot FX rate. The respective amounts are then converted back to CHF applying the average 2020 FX rate from the period against which the FX impact is measured. Average FX rates apply a straight line average of monthly FX rates for major currenciesWealth Management businesses include SUB PC, IWM PB and APAC and related figures refer to their combined resultsWealth Management-related businesses include SUB, IWM and APAC and related figures refer to their combined resultsPre-provision profit refers to pre-tax income excluding provision for credit lossesClient Business Volume includes assets under management, custody assets and net loansGreensill refers to Greensill Capital (UK) Ltd. or one of its affiliates Specific notes† Prior to 3Q20, regulatory capital was calculated as the worst of 10% of RWA and 3.5% of leverage exposure and return on regulatory capital (a non-GAAP financial measure) was calculated using income / (loss) after tax and assumed a tax rate of 30%. In 3Q20, we updated our calculation approach, following which regulatory capital is calculated as the average of 10% of RWA and 3.5% of leverage exposure and return on regulatory capital (a non-GAAP financial measure) is calculated using income / (loss) after tax and assumes a tax rate of 30% for periods prior to 2020 and 25% from 2020 onwards. For periods in 2020, for purposes of calculating Group return on regulatory capital, leverage exposure excludes cash held at central banks, after adjusting for the dividend paid in 2020. For the Investment Bank division, return on regulatory capital is based on US dollar denominated numbers. Adjusted return on regulatory capital is calculated using adjusted results, applying the same methodology to calculate return on regulatory capital.‡ Return on tangible equity, a non-GAAP financial measure, is calculated as annualized net income attributable to shareholders divided by average tangible shareholders’ equity. Tangible shareholders’ equity, a non-GAAP financial measure, is calculated by deducting goodwill and other intangible assets from total shareholders’ equity as presented in our balance sheet. Tangible book value, a non-GAAP financial measure, is equal to tangible shareholders’ equity. Tangible book value per share, a non-GAAP financial measure, is calculated by dividing tangible shareholders' equity by total number of shares outstanding. Management believes that tangible shareholders’ equity/tangible book value, return on tangible equity and tangible book value per share are meaningful as they are measures used and relied upon by industry analysts and investors to assess valuations and capital adequacy.For end-1Q20, tangible shareholders’ equity excluded goodwill of CHF 4,604 mn and other intangible assets of CHF 279 mn from total shareholders’ equity of CHF 48,675 mn as presented in our balance sheet. For end-4Q20, tangible shareholders’ equity excluded goodwill of CHF 4,426 mn and other intangible assets of CHF 237 mn from total shareholders’ equity of CHF 42,677 mn as presented in our balance sheet.For end-1Q21, tangible shareholders’ equity excluded goodwill of CHF 4,644 mn and other intangible assets of CHF 239 mn from total shareholders’ equity of CHF 44,590 mn as presented in our balance sheet.Shares outstanding were 2,406.1 mn at end-4Q20 and 2,364.0 mn at end-1Q21.
