Additional information

The disclosure obligation arose due to the total holdings in voting rights of UBS Group AG, held directly by controlled undertakings, falling below 3% on 9th July 2018. This was caused by a reduction in the Trading Book holdings of the afore-mentioned entities below 5% and therefore being exempt from reporting.
