The phrase, and others like “profit sharing” and “the market,” allegedly were codes used by the former UBS Financial Services Inc. bankers to carry out a scheme to rig bids for guaranteed investment contracts and other contracts related to municipal bonds, according to court documents filed Monday by attorneys for the U.S. Department of Justice.
