Bank J. Safra Sarasin AG Key Developments

Bank J. Safra Refutes Plans To Acquire BSI

Bank J. Safra Sarasin AG refuted plans to acquire BSI SA from Banco BTG Pactual S.A. A spokesman said: "J Safra Sarasin and any other part of the Safra Group are not buying, nor are they going to buy, BSI." The statement came after the online edition of Swiss newspaper Handelszeitung reported that Grupo BTG Pactual had agreed to divest BSI to Safra Sarasin for an undisclosed sum.

Credit Suisse, Julius Baer eye bids for BTG Pactual's Swiss Unit

Credit Suisse Group AG (SWX:CSGN) and Julius Baer Group Ltd. (SWX:BAER) are among a handful of banks vying to buy BSI SA from BTG Pactual Group (BOVESPA:BBTG11) in a cut-price deal, sources with direct knowledge of the talks told Reuters. Credit Suisse is exploring an offer that would value BSI at less than CHF 1 billion, one of the sources said. Two sources said Italy's Intesa Sanpaolo S.p.A. (BIT:ISP) as well as two unidentified Chinese organizations were also interested in BSI. Switzerland's Bank J. Safra Sarasin AG could be another interested buyer, they said. BSI has been put on the block after its billionaire founder André Esteves was arrested in connection with a corruption probe in Brazil. Industry bankers said Fosun International Limited (SEHK:656) is monitoring the sale of BSI but it remains unclear whether it is looking to place an offer.
