Credit Suisse (CS) - Get Report is contemplating an accelerated book building to raise capital rather than selling a minority stake in its Swiss banking division as an IPO, sources told Reuters

CEO Tidjane Thiam stated in February that the bank was examining alternatives to the IPO, originally scheduled for the second half of this year. 

"They need more capital," one source said. "They realize they can do this without doing an IPO."
