Lloyds Banking Group PLC reported Thursday an unexpected swing to a pretax loss for the first half of 2020 after booking a large impairment charge due to the coronavirus pandemic and said its outlook remains highly uncertain.

The U.K.'s largest retail bank posted a pretax loss of 602 million pounds ($780.3 million) compared with a profit of GBP2.90 billion for the same period a year earlier. The lender was expected to report a pretax profit of GBP42 million for the first six months of the year, according to its own compilation of consensus.

The FTSE-100 lender's net interest income decreased 11% to GBP5.48 billion. Net income--which includes operating lease depreciation and other income--was GBP7.41 billion compared with a forecast of GBP7.4 billion according to its own compilation of forecasts.

The bank took impairments of GBP2.39 billion in the second quarter after booking a GBP1.43 billion charge in the first quarter of the year due to the coronavirus pandemic, a total of 3.82 billion, up from the expected GBP2.9 billion impairments for the first-half based on Lloyds' compilation of estimates.

The bank ended the period with a common equity Tier 1 ratio--a key measure of balance-sheet strength--of 14.6%, up from 13.6% at the year-earlier period.
