|Re:||UBS AG Form 20-F for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2011|
|Forms 6-K furnished July 31, 2012 and October 30, 2012|
|Response dated September 10, 2012|
Dear Ms. Ciboroski:
We have received your letter dated January 30, 2013, outlining further comments from your office with respect to certain accounting and other issues raised by the captioned filings of UBS AG and our responses to earlier questions raised by the Staff.
We are working diligently on preparing written responses to the several issues raised. We expect that this process will take more than the ten business days within which you have requested a response, because of the need to discuss the issues, and the commitments as to future disclosure that the SEC is requesting us to make, internally among numerous senior members of management. We are in the process of finalizing our fourth quarter 2012 report, which is scheduled to be released on Tuesday, February 5, 2013, and we will not have an opportunity to consider or incorporate any changes into that report as a result of these comments. We will, of course, consider your comments and incorporate them as appropriate into our 2012 Annual Report on Form 20-F, which we expect to file on March 14, 2013.
We expect to be in a position to supply our full response to your comments by February 28, 2013.
Please contact us if you have any concerns about this.
|Very truly yours,|
