Subject: Email Problems
Last night, Credit Suisse suffered a system problem that inadvertently resent emails from July 29th to our clients. Unfortunately that day was a very heavy earnings communication day and as a result, you may be receiving emails today referencing events that have clearly already occurred. In addition, it is not clear whether the email has been resent from the summary view of most email systems as they were redated for today. Once the email is opened, however, the sent date reflects 7/29.
We apologize for any confusion or frustration this may have caused you. We are investigating the issue to ensure this does not occur again. If you have any questions or issues, please feel free to call Lara Warner, Director of U.S. Research at 212-538-4804 or email at
Thank you for your attention to this matter.

Promotion Watch '12: Credit Suisse

Recent events might have had you thinking otherwise, but Credit Suisse does more than just layoff its employees-- sometimes it promotes them, too! Earlier this morning, in fact, the Swiss bumped a whole bunch of guys and girls up to managing director. And even though it's not grundle-to-face level exciting, it's still something.
