Twitter CEO Elon Musk responded with one word to reports that UBS would get a $100 billion credit line as part of a $2 billion deal to buy Credit Suisse: wow.
A deal between the two financial institutions was announced on Sunday after the Swiss government reportedly agreed to a deal that allowed the largest bank in Switzerland, UBS, to buy its rival, Credit Suisse, for $2 billion.
The deal comes as concerns continue to mount over the potential collapse of Credit Suisse, which saw its stock price plunge and deposit outflows continue last week, despite receiving a $54 billion financial lifeline from the Swiss National Bank to bolster its liquidity.
“So UBS buys Credit Suisse, Shareholders don’t get a vote, UBS gets $100 billion credit line from central bank…,” Twitter user Wall Street Silver posted. “Crazy times this week. Bandaids flying everywhere to keep the system from falling apart.”
The tweet was in response to a story about the buyout and how Swiss authorities engineered the deal.
Billionaire Musk, who purchased Twitter last year, is the founder of SpaceX and the CEO of Tesla.
