The Financial Review 4Q07 and the Financial Statements 4Q07 each contain financial information for the year ended December 31, 2007. Our independent registered public accounting firm has not completed its audit of our financial statements for the year ended December 31, 2007 and we have not finalized our Annual Report on Form 20-F for the period.

Forward-looking statements

This Form 6-K and the information incorporated by reference in this Form 6-K include statements that constitute forward-looking statements within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act. In addition, in the future Credit Suisse Group and others on its behalf may make statements that constitute forward-looking statements.

When evaluating forward-looking statements, you should carefully consider the cautionary statement regarding forward-looking information, the risk factors and other information set forth in Credit Suisse Group’s annual report on Form 20-F for the year ended December 31, 2006 (the Group’s 2006 20-F), and subsequent annual reports on Form 20-F filed by Credit Suisse Group with the US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) and Credit Suisse Group’s reports on Form 6-K furnished to or filed with the SEC, and other uncertainties and events.

Legal proceedings

The Group is involved in a number of judicial, regulatory and arbitration proceedings concerning matters arising in connection with the conduct of its businesses. Some of these actions have been brought on behalf of various classes of claimants and seek damages of material and/or indeterminate amounts. The Group believes, based on currently available information and advice of counsel, that the results of such proceedings, in the aggregate, will not have a material adverse effect on its financial condition but might be material to operating results for any particular period, depending, in part, upon the operating results for such period.

Information on the Group’s legal proceedings is set forth in “Note 23 – Litigation” in the Notes to the condensed consolidated financial statements in the Financial Statements 4Q07.

Mortgage-related matters
Credit Suisse Securities (USA) LLC (CSS LLC) and certain of its affiliates have received subpoenas and requests for information from certain regulators regarding the origination, purchase, securitization and servicing of subprime and non-subprime residential mortgages and related issues. CSS LLC and its affiliates are cooperating with such inquiries and requests. CSS LLC and certain of its affiliates have also been named as defendants in various civil litigation matters related to the residential mortgage business, including a purported class action related to CSS LLC's role as an underwriter of certain offerings of mortgage pass- through certificates for a subsidiary of Countrywide Financial Corp., and an action filed by the City of Cleveland against numerous financial institutions, including CSS LLC, alleging that the defendants' activities in connection with securitizations of subprime mortgages created a "public nuisance" in the City of Cleveland.
