    Restatement of UBS Commodity Indices MBCIBSXA and MBCIBCXA

    Further to the notice published by IHS Markit Index Administration Services ('IAS') on April 28th 2017 (and associated notices published in the week preceding April 28th 2017), IAS has implemented the planned methodology change to the below UBS commodity indices (the 'Indices'). Further investigation with a data provider about the accuracy of the provided dates, which were used in the Basis calculation of the April 2017 selection, it was identified that in certain instances incorrect date had been listed as the Expiration Date. As a result, incorrect underlying contracts were included in the April rebalance composition. The Index Administration Committee of IAS has therefore decided to restate the impacted index levels from April and May (see attachment).


    Index Name BBG Code RIC
    UBS Commodity Capped Short Basis ex Agriculture ex Livestock Index MBCIBSXA UBSIBSXA=UBSL
    UBS Commodity Capped Basis Long-Short Basis ex Agriculture ex Livestock Index MBCIBCXA UBSIBCXA=UBSL
