Credit Suisse Inaugural Commercial Partner for CNBC's New Global Program

Singapore, January 9, 2006 - Credit Suisse has signed up as the first global commercial partner for CNBC International's new "Worldwide Exchange" program, complementing the launch of its new Credit Suisse brand in 2006.

The Credit Suisse campaign, which starts on January 16, 2006, launches on air as CNBC's new global program, "Worldwide Exchange," gets in to its stride. "Worldwide Exchange" is the first truly global daily news program, with anchors in Singapore, London and New York. The program delivers in-depth analysis of world-wide trends which are influencing international investors.

Credit Suisse will have commercial spots across the entire CNBC global network –- CNBC in the US, Europe and in Asia Pacific -– during the breaks in "Worldwide Exchange," which airs simultaneously around the world: 10 a.m. - 12 noon CET (9 a.m. - 11 a.m. UK); 4 a.m. - 6 a.m. ET in the U.S. and 5 p.m. - 7 p.m. SING in Asia. This will be enhanced in Asia and the U.S., where Credit Suisse has lead sponsorship of the program and "tune in" promotional spots running throughout each week.

Adrian New, SVP, Sales Director, CNBC in Asia Pacific said: "This is a pioneering deal for CNBC. Credit Suisse is our first major global commercial partner for 'Worldwide Exchange' and we're delighted they recognize the influence of CNBC as a powerful platform from which to communicate their key marketing messages to a high-level, elite audience worldwide."

Charles Naylor, Head of Corporate Communications at Credit Suisse said: "It is extremely important that our re-branding campaign is communicated effectively and efficiently to our stakeholders globally. CNBC offers the ideal environment for us to reach our audience and leverage the Credit Suisse heritage as well as communicate our new direction."
