Rebuilding indexes and maintaining statistics

Last Modified: 2016-08-18
I have a client who has a maintenance plan that runs an update statistics task straight after rebuilding indexes. I have read recently that rebuilding indexes will automatically update the statistics tables, which if true, will make the task of updating statistics superfluous and unnecessary. Can you confirm that this is true ?
