Swiss bank UBS on Monday said that it had formally completed the takeover of its rival Credit Suisse.

UBS agreed to the $3.2 billion deal in March, with Swiss regulators playing a key role in the acquisition amid worries that severe losses at Credit Suisse destabilizing the banking system.

The newly-enlarged UBS will have a balance sheet of $1.6 trillion.

Regulators said Friday that they would cover losses of up to 9 billion Swiss francs ($10 billion) after UBS incurs the first 5 billion Swiss francs as part of the transaction, as it absorbs a portfolio that does not entirely “fit its business and risk profile.”

This is a breaking news story and will be updated shortly.
