UBS extends lock-in for directors’ incentives to eight years

UBS directors will in future be locked into equity incentive plans for up to eight years, as part of an initiative by the Swiss bank to improve its governance. Until now, executives could sell vested stock after five years, as long as they continued to own equity valued at five times their cash compensation.

UBS also intends to gain the right to cut cash incentives promised up to three years earlier. The principles behind this system will also be applied to risk-takers, including traders, operating at a senior level below the board. Notice periods will be halved to six months.

If Goldman Returns Aid, Will Others?

Goldman Sachs is planning to return the TARP money due to the compensation restriction issues (among other things). Other banks want to follow. However, are the banks really strong enough to give up this money? Is this a sign that the value of all their toxic securities hit the bottom and they won't be devalued anymore?

Private Equity's Future in a Deleveraging World

As the liquidity crunch curbs cheap debt, private equity will shrink dramatically, and a smaller, more vibrant industry will reemerge

Wall Street Deal Making Enters Stealth Mode

After months of constricted options and volatile markets, the wide world of deals is looking up again.

U.S. companies are testing the markets with select mergers, initial public offerings, follow-on equity offerings and debt sales after the deep freeze of 2008. Some have even sought multiple deals–Alcoa’s $1.3 billion sale of stock and convertible bonds, say, or swiss pharmaceutical company Nycomed hiring Goldman Sachs Group to explore either a merger or an initial public offering so that Nycomed’s investors, Scandinavia’s Nordic Capital and Swiss-owned Credit Suisse DLJ Merchant Banking Partners, can cash out on part of their investment. An IPO is not likely, but even the idea that it is on the table is meaningful.
