Item 1. Security and Issuer.

The title of the class of equity securities to which this Schedule 13D relates is the Registered Shares par value of CHF 0.10 each of UBS AG (each, a “UBS AG Share” and collectively, the “UBS AG Shares”), a company organized pursuant to the laws of Switzerland (“UBS AG”). The address of the principal executive offices of UBS AG is Bahnhofstrasse 45, CH-8001 Zurich, Switzerland, and Aeschenvorstadt 1, CH-4051 Basel, Switzerland.

Item 2. Identity and Background.

The name of the person filing this statement is UBS Group AG, a stock corporation organized pursuant to the laws of Switzerland (Aktiengesellschaft) (“UBS Group AG”).

UBS AG proposed to its shareholders to establish a new holding company, UBS Group AG. To implement this proposal, UBS Group AG offered to acquire any and all issued UBS AG shares in exchange for UBS Group AG shares on a share-for-share basis (the “Exchange Offer”).

On September 29, 2014, UBS Group AG launched the Exchange Offer with the publication of the Swiss offer prospectus (“Offer Prospectus”). Under the terms of the Exchange Offer, every UBS AG Share validly tendered in, and not withdrawn from, the Exchange Offer was exchanged for one registered share of UBS Group AG with a par value of CHF 0.10 (each, a “UBS Group AG Share” and collectively, the “UBS Group AG Shares”).

The Exchange Offer commenced on October 14, 2014 and was declared unconditional on November 21, 2014. On November 26, 2014, UBS Group AG acquired the 3,475,356,441 UBS AG Shares tendered during the initial offer period, representing 90.4% of all issued UBS AG Shares. UBS Group AG commenced the subsequent offer period of the Exchange Offer mandated by Swiss law on November 26, 2014, during which the remaining holders of UBS AG Shares were permitted to tender their shares in exchange for UBS Group AG Shares, in accordance with the procedures described in the Exchange Offer. The subsequent offer period of the Exchange Offer expired on December 10, 2014. UBS Group AG acquired an additional 240,062,971 UBS AG Shares during the subsequent offer period, bringing the total number of UBS AG Shares tendered in the Exchange Offer to 3,715,419,412, representing 96.6% of UBS AG Shares. On December 16, 2014, UBS Group AG implemented a capital increase to authorize an additional 241,553,766 UBS Group AG Shares for issuance in exchange for the UBS AG Shares that were tendered into the Exchange Offer during the subsequent offer period as well as a small number of UBS AG Shares acquired by private exchanges with various shareholders and banks in Switzerland and elsewhere outside the United States between December 11, 2014 and December 15, 2014. These private exchanges were made on the same terms and conditions as applied to the Exchange Offer. Upon settlement of these private exchanges, UBS Group AG held 3,716,910,207 UBS AG Shares. On December 16, 2014, UBS Group AG filed a final amendment to its Schedule T-O in respect of the Exchange Offer, in satisfaction of the reporting requirements of Section 13(d) of the U.S. Securities Exchange Act of 1934 with respect to all securities acquired by it in the Exchange Offer. Subsequently, UBS Group AG has conducted further private exchanges from time to time with various shareholders and banks in Switzerland and elsewhere outside the United States, in which UBS Group AG has acquired an additional 1.0% of UBS AG Shares on the same terms and conditions as applied to the Exchange Offer. As a result, UBS Group AG has acquired 3,753,957,042 UBS AG Shares, or approximately 97.6% of UBS AG Shares outstanding as of May 5, 2015.

It is the current intention of UBS Group AG to acquire 100% of the outstanding shares of UBS AG.

The main business purpose of UBS Group AG is the acquisition, holding, administration and sale of direct and indirect participations in enterprises of any kind, in particular in the areas of banking, financial, advisory, trading and service activities in Switzerland and abroad. Prior to the Exchange Offer, UBS AG was both the ultimate parent company and primary operating bank of UBS AG and its consolidated subsidiaries. UBS Group AG was formed as wholly-owned subsidiary of UBS AG for purposes of conducting the Exchange Offer. Upon consummation of the Exchange Offer, UBS Group AG became the non-operating ultimate parent company of UBS AG and its consolidated subsidiaries, and UBS AG became a subsidiary of UBS Group AG.

The address of the principal business and the principal office of UBS Group AG is Bahnhofstrasse 45, CH-8001 Zurich, Switzerland.

Set forth in Schedule A attached hereto, which is incorporated herein by reference, is the name, citizenship, residence or business address and present principal occupation or employment (and the name, principal business and address of any corporation or other organization in which such employment is conducted) of each of UBS Group


AG’s directors and executive officers. During the last five years, neither UBS Group AG nor, to UBS Group AG’s knowledge, any person named in Schedule A hereto (i) was convicted in a criminal proceeding (excluding traffic violations or similar misdemeanors) or (ii) was a party to a civil proceeding of a judicial or administrative body of competent jurisdiction as a result of which such person was or is subject to a judgment, decree or final order enjoining future violations of, or prohibiting or mandating activities subject to, federal or state securities laws or finding any violation with respect to such laws.

Item 3. Source and Amount of Funds or Other Consideration.

The sole consideration for all UBS AG Shares acquired by UBS Group AG pursuant to the Exchange Offer and subsequent private exchanges was UBS Group AG Shares, in each case on a one for one basis. This includes (i) all UBS Shares exchanged for UBS Group AG Shares in the Exchange Offer and (ii) all Ordinary Shares acquired via private exchanges prior to the filing hereof.

Item 4. Purpose of Transaction.

The purpose of the Exchange Offer was to establish a holding company for UBS AG and its consolidated subsidiaries. Upon consummation of the Exchange Offer, UBS Group AG became the holding company of UBS AG. The establishment of a group holding company is intended, along with other measures, to substantially improve the resolvability of UBS AG and its consolidated subsidiaries in response to Swiss “too-big-to-fail” requirements and applicable requirements in other countries in which UBS AG and its consolidated subsidiaries operate.

Swiss “too-big-to-fail” requirements call for systemically important banks, including UBS AG, to put in place viable emergency plans to preserve the operation of systemically important functions despite a failure of the institution, to the extent that such activities are not sufficiently separated in advance, and to enable the recovery or resolution of UBS AG and its consolidated subsidiaries as a whole. The Swiss “too-big-to-fail” requirements provide for the possibility of a limited reduction in the progressive buffer capital requirement for systemically important institutions that adopt measures to reduce resolvability risk beyond what is legally required, including through alterations of legal structure. A group holding company is expected to facilitate the issue of debt that can be “bailed-in” in a resolution while limiting the consequences of the bail-in on the operating entities of the group and the creditors of those entities. A debt bail-in is a procedure contemplated by the Swiss bank insolvency ordinance (and other similar laws and regulations in other countries) that permits the governmental authority exercising resolution powers to cause a write-down or conversion of debt into equity of the failing institution. The debt bail-in mechanism is intended to effectively recapitalize the institution to permit an orderly wind-down, disposition or continued operation of operating entities. These and other measures are intended to substantially improve the overall resolvability of UBS AG and its consolidated subsidiaries.

In 2013 and 2014, the Board of UBS AG considered the reasons for implementing various structural changes, including a potential holding company structure as well as strategic alternatives. The Board also considered the only two alternative means for achieving a group holding company structure considered achievable—the first being a share-for-share exchange offer and the second being the conversion of UBS AG into a holding company by means of a “push out” comprising a series of transactions whereby assets, liabilities, contracts and business operations would be transferred from UBS AG to one or more newly formed subsidiaries, leaving UBS AG as a pure holding company. After consideration of various matters relating to necessary regulatory approvals and concessions, the Board of UBS AG directors approved a proposal to create a new group holding company by means of a share exchange offer, based on its consideration of the following factors, among other things: improved resolvability in response to Swiss “too-big-to-fail” requirements, discussions with competent regulators, potential positive impact on capital requirements, enhanced flexibility in debt issuances and “bail-in,” terms of the Exchange Offer (including one-for-one exchange ratio), tax treatment and accounting treatment. To that end, UBS Group AG conducted the Exchange Offer. See Item 2.

As of May 5, 2015 UBS Group AG has acquired beneficial ownership of 3,753,957,042 UBS AG Shares, or 97.6% of the outstanding UBS AG Shares. It is the current intention of UBS Group AG to acquire 100% of the UBS AG Shares.

To achieve 100% ownership, on March 9, 2015, UBS Group AG requested the competent court in Switzerland to cancel the UBS AG Shares held by any remaining holders of UBS AG Shares (“Minority Holders”), under Swiss law in accordance with a statutory and court-ordered forced exchange of all UBS AG Shares remaining outside the ownership of UBS Group AG for newly issued UBS Group AG Shares (the “SESTA Procedure”). UBS Group AG expects that the Swiss court will grant this request if it acquires more than 98% of the UBS AG Shares registered in


the commercial registers of Zurich and Basel on or before the date established by the competent court in Switzerland (the “SESTA Deadline”). Upon the conclusion of the court proceeding, which we expect to take between four and six months, Minority Holders will lose their shareholder rights in UBS AG through cancellation of their UBS AG Shares and instead will receive one UBS Group AG Share for each UBS AG Share they hold.

As a means of permitting UBS Group AG to acquire more than 98% of UBS AG shares as required for the successful completion of the SESTA Procedure, UBS AG plans to implement a cash-or-title dividend (“CoTD”). The CoTD will comprise of a distribution per UBS AG Share, at the election of each shareholder, of either (i) CHF 0.50 in cash, or (ii) a number of new UBS AG Shares to be determined so as to be of substantially equivalent value to the cash dividend. The CoTD is designed so that new UBS AG Shares issued pursuant to it will be issued out of conditional capital. This will be achieved through the issuance of warrants to a subsidiary of UBS AG, which will exercise the warrants, subscribe for the new UBS AG Shares to be issued, and pay their nominal value. UBS AG plans to present the CoTD to shareholders at its May 7, 2015 annual general meeting of UBS AG shareholders, and following the meeting shareholders will have approximately two weeks to elect to take the dividend in cash or new shares. UBS Group AG will choose to receive the dividend in shares with respect to a number of its existing UBS AG Shares sufficient to ensure that the 98% threshold will be reached.

If the CoTD fails or the SESTA Procedure is not successful for any other reason, UBS Group AG may choose to acquire the remaining UBS AG Shares held by Minority Holders through any legally permissible means, including by way of a merger of UBS AG with and into a newly formed subsidiary of UBS Group AG (“Merger”), or offering to acquire the remaining UBS AG Shares from Minority Holders either in exchange for new UBS Group AG Shares or for cash, or may leave such UBS AG Shares outstanding indefinitely. No decision has been made as to which course of action UBS Group AG would seek to pursue in such circumstances. As a result of either the SESTA Procedure or the Merger, UBS AG would become a wholly-owned subsidiary of UBS Group AG.

The UBS AG Shares were delisted from the New York Stock Exchange with effect from January 17, 2015. In addition, on January 13, 2015, the SIX Swiss Exchange granted the delisting of UBS AG Shares conditional upon completion of either the SESTA Procedure or the Merger.

UBS Group AG reserves the right to use any legally permitted method to obtain 100% of the UBS AG Shares. This could include the SESTA Procedure, engaging in one or more corporate restructuring transactions, such as a merger, liquidation, transfer of assets or conversion of UBS AG into another form or corporate entity, or changing the UBS articles of association to alter the corporate or capital structure in a manner beneficial to UBS Group AG. Further, UBS Group AG could engage in one or more transactions with Minority Holders that may include public or private exchanges, tender offers or purchases for consideration consisting of UBS Group AG shares, other securities or cash.

Item 5. Interest in Securities of the Issuer.

(a) UBS Group AG has acquired beneficial ownership of 3,753,957,042 UBS AG Shares, or 97.6% of UBS Shares (the “Subject Shares”) as of May 5, 2015.

(b) UBS Group AG has the sole power to vote and to direct the vote, and the sole power to dispose and to direct the disposition of, the Subject Shares.

(c) Schedule B sets forth a list of all acquisitions of UBS AG Shares by UBS Group AG during the past 60 days. Each UBS AG Share acquired by UBS Group AG was acquired in exchange for one share of UBS Group AG in private transactions outside of the United States and on the same terms as the Exchange Offer.

(d) No other person has the right to receive or the power to direct the receipt of dividends from, or the proceeds from the sale of, the UBS AG Shares owned by UBS Group AG.

(e) Not applicable.

Item 6. Contracts, Arrangements, Understandings or Relationships With Respect to Securities of the Issuer.

The information contained in Items 2, 3 and 4 are incorporated by reference into this Item 6.

In addition, on November 26, 2014, in connection with the Exchange Offer, UBS Group AG and UBS AG entered into an agreement pursuant to which UBS AG transferred to UBS Group AG all of the obligations of UBS AG as the


grantor of equity awards under certain employee benefit plans of UBS AG, as well as any hedging assets related to the outstanding equity awards (including certain UBS AG Shares held as treasury shares by UBS AG) effective as of the closing of the Exchange Offer. A copy of this agreement is attached as Exhibit 99.1 and incorporated by reference into this Item 6.

Item 7. Material to be Filed as Exhibits.
