In June 2008, Credit Suisse established a $2 billion Canadian medium-term note program. Medium-term notes issued under the program are qualified by way of a pricing supplement to Credit Suisse's base shelf prospectus filed with regulators in each of the provinces and territories of Canada in April 2008.
In June and July 2008, Credit Suisse also completed the offering in Canada of Callable Yield Notes, Series C, Tranche 1i and Auto-Callable Yield Notes, Series C, Tranche 1ii. Richardson Partners Financial Limited acted as the sole dealer in connection with both these fully underwritten offerings.
Credit Suisse was represented in-house by Richard O'Keeffe and Jeanne Quinn Marks and by Davies Ward Phillips & Vineberg LLP, with a team comprised of Robert Murphy, Banu Unal and Greg Harnish (securities) and Ronald Wilson and Carl Irvine (tax). David Gottlieb and Pamela Marcogliese of Cleary Gottlieb Steen & Hamilton LLP acted as US counsel to Credit Suisse, and Rene Boesch, Anh Huynh and Lee Saladino of Homburger AG acted as Swiss counsel to Credit Suisse.
The dealers were represented by McMillan LLP with a team comprised of Jennifer Parkin and Jason Chertin (securities) and David Wentzell (tax).
