polar fox: Forbes has some more interesting analysis from Trefis in Boston: Selling RBS Stake Could Cost U.K. Government Over £11 Billion U.K. Financial Investments Limited, which was set up by the U.K. government in 2008 to oversee the bailout investment in the Royal Bank of Scotland Group and the Lloyds Group, recently reaffirmed its plan to sell £3 billion worth of RBS shares by the end of March 2019. This announcement makes it increasingly likely that the U.K. government will go through with its larger plan of selling a chunk of its stake in RBS worth £3 billion in each of the next five years. This is good news for the British banking giant, which has been struggling to return to the private sector since its £45.5 billion bailout in late 2008. But how long will it take for the UKFI to work its way through all its stake in RBS? And is there any hope of the British government recovering all of the initial taxpayer money? We created a detailed, interactive dashboard for RBS in an attempt to answer these questions using forecasts for just two primary input parameters – the expected annual stake sale value and expected growth in RBS’s share price. Based on the dashboard, we believe that the stake sale will be completed in 2023, with the net loss incurred by British taxpayers being around £11.3 billion (almost 25% of the initial investment, ignoring the impact of inflation). Notably, this is in sharp contrast to the UKFI’s sale of its stake in Lloyds, which was completed successfully last year at a nominal profit. But it must be noted here that the Lloyds bailout was much smaller (£20.3 billion), and also that Lloyds’ shares recovered to well above the bailout figure of 73.6 pence a share over 2014-15. On the other hand, RBS’s shares have traded largely around 250-350 pence over recent years – well below the bailout figure of a little over 500 pence. RBS Has Come A Long Way, But Can’t Match The Profits Of Its Former Self RBS has faced a long list of setbacks on its path to re-privatization over the last decade. The bank reported an annual loss for each year over the nine-year period from 2008-16, even as it worked on reorganizing its once-diversified business model towards retail and commercial banking services in the U.K. and clearing its huge backlog of legacy legal issues. The bank reported its first annual profit in 2017, but with the U.S. mortgage-related lawsuit yet to be settled, it is staring at another potentially huge loss for the current year. But there is no denying the fact that aside from the impending multi-billion dollar settlement with the U.S. Department of Justice (DoJ), things are looking up for the smaller, more efficient RBS. That said, RBS’s current size and business model cannot generate returns at the levels needed to justify a valuation anywhere near its bailout level. This is very likely what triggered the British government’s decision to begin selling its stake at a sizable rate over the next five years. So How Will The Stake Scale Pan Out? Due to a sharp decline in RBS’s share price since the bailout, the UKFI has sold RBS shares on just one occasion in the past – when it sold £2 billion worth of shares in 2015. But the U.K. government intends to sell £3 billion worth of its stake in RBS in the fiscal year 2018, and to also dispose of £3 billion worth of shares each year over 2019-22. Given this plan, it seems likely that it will continue to reduce its stake in RBS by £3 billion each year beyond 2023 too. With the actual number of shares sold by UKFI depending on the average price of RBS’s shares in a year, we also forecast the change in RBS’s share price over coming years. As shown in the chart below, RBS’s share price has largely increased by ~5% annually over recent years after tanking from over £5 in late 2009 to just £2.23 at the end of 2014. Accordingly, an annual growth rate of 5% over coming years looks appropriate for our analysis. Based on the two assumptions as detailed above, we estimate that the U.K. government’s stake in RBS will decline from around 71.2% now to below 20% by the end of 2023, before eventually falling to zero by 2026. Finally, this leads us to our projections for the U.K. government’s effective loss over coming years. It includes the realized losses from actual stake sales, and any unrealized losses at the end of a year for the remaining holdings. Note that our calculations include the £5.6 billion in payments and special dividend received by the government from RBS. unquote It's going to be a long day's night!
gcom2: the fine is not new news. its been known for many,many years with RBS share price between 158p and 480p
chinese investor: A consultancy that recruited Royal Bank of Scotland PLC shareholders to join a class action lawsuit against the bank over its 2008 rights issue has sued the investors for a slice of the £200 million settlement they won from the lender in 2017. Vange Consulting Ltd. said in court documents seen by Law360 on Monday that it is owed around £1 million in fees from the RBS shareholder action group. The group accepted an 82-pence-a-share deal in June, averting a trial over allegations that the bank had misled investors in its £12 billion rights issue shortly before a government bailout wiped out RBS' share price. The firm, which is bringing the claim on behalf of Newman Bell Ltd. — also a consultancy, which recruited RBS shareholders into the class action — said it is entitled to £944,000 in commissions from the settlement. It also says it is owed around £100,000 in payments linked to commissions due on membership fees paid by shareholders who joined the action. Under a consultancy agreement with the RBS action group, which represented thousands of RBS shareholders, Newman Bell recruited institutional investors holding around 160 million RBS shares to join the class action. The firm is owed a percentage of membership fees paid to the action group by the shareholders, Vange alleged in a High Court lawsuit filed in November that only recently became publicly available. Newman Bell assigned its rights over the fees to Vange in a deal in which Vange will pay the firm 50 percent of the membership fee commissions it claws back from the action group and five percent of the settlement payment. According to the suit NBL was to be paid a commission of 7.5 percent of the fees payable by each RBS shareholder holding at least 50,000 RBS shares, and is due one percent of the settlement. Vange says the recruited shareholders — excluding three institutional investors — obtained litigation funding from Vannin Capital PCC Ltd. to pay their membership fees, but maintains the action group has so far refused to pay these commissions. “If the action group alleges that the membership fees … have still not been paid, it is averred that it was agreed that those fees would be paid by Vannin, or by the alternative funder,” the claim says. “Vange is entitled to payment of settlement commission in respect of the settlement of recruited shareholders’ claims against RBS. In breach of the consultancy agreement, the action group has failed to pay that sum,” it adds. The RBS action group, which represented thousands of RBS investors, was the last of five sets of shareholders still pursuing claims that RBS directors made recklessly optimistic statements that gave a grossly misleading impression of the bank’s underlying strength to support the financial crisis-era rights issue. The case had been set to go to trial at the High Court in London in May. But it was repeatedly postponed amid the settlement negotiations. Since the case was settled, however, the deal has prompted disputes and litigation among the claimants and their advisers, including a suit brought by Vannin Capital. The litigation funder said in a mid-December claim that it had signed a pair of agreements with the action group and its former counsel in 2013 that entitled it to £14 million in premiums and interest from the settlement. The RBS action group had not responded to request for comment at the time of publication. Vange is represented by Simon Davenport QC and Alexander Halban of 3 Hare Court, instructed by Bates Wells Braithwaite LLP. The case is Vange Consulting Ltd. v. RBoS Shareholders Action Group Ltd., claim number BL-2017-000400 in the Business and Property Courts in the High Court of Justice of England and Wales.
cfc1: I think we need it....but no doubt the weak/pathetic/whingers will vote against the Tories and put the UK in a mess. none of this helps our RBS share price!!
gcom2: "RBS will do no better than the British economy." Yet with the last few years of a strong british economy, this has gone down ,down and down. So i doubt that statement is true. Net margins and fines are whst affect RBS share price.
cfc1: agreed Leeds...but we haven't even got to a divi yet! STOP painting a doom and gloom picture of the UK as it doesn't exist... we are a G7 country with fingers in many pies across the globe ....a trade deal with the US in the offing unless you people that made Trump rethink his visit persist. A TINY drop in PMI and other data doesn't constitute a collapse!!! Just agree with my top three reasons that will drive RBS share price and then we can move on with stuff!
gcom2: how will a euro (ie Greece) crisis send the rbs share price higher
cfc1: well one damn day perhaps RBS share price will turn. Its a depressing read being an RBS share holder...we need something positive from this bank one day!!! Still W&G disposal will be step one. The US DoJ....still waiting to see Deutsche bank fine.....
gcom2: Any views here on how a Trump/Clinton win will affect rbs share price? or, as it's rbs will it fall on either one winning?
