Taxpayer gives up majority stake in NatWest 14 years after huge bailout

Government sells £1.2bn worth of shares to take its stake below 50pc

Telegraph Reporters
28 March 2022 • 8:22am

Nearly a decade and a half since stepping in to save the Royal Bank of Scotland Group during the financial crisis, the Government has ceded control for the first time after selling off a big chunk of shares.

The Treasury said it has sold £1.2 billion worth of shares in NatWest Group - as RBS rebranded in 2020 - taking its stake to less than 50%.

John Glen, Economic secretary to the Treasury, said: "This sale means that the Government is no longer the majority owner of NatWest Group and is therefore an important landmark in our plan to return the bank to the private sector.

"We will continue to prioritise delivering value for money for the taxpayer as we take forward this plan."

In 2008 the Government started to build a stake in the group following the financial crash which had left it teetering on the brink of collapse.

The initial investment, which saw the Government owning 57% of the bank, was extended a couple of times before peaking at 84% in 2009.

The Treasury has been selling off its stake since 2015, and the latest sale takes its ownership from 50.6% to 48.1%.

NatWest said the latest deal saw it buying 550 million shares at around £2.21 each.

The process of selling off NatWest shares is likely to continue for some time to come, and has already taken considerably longer than the sell-off of Lloyds.

The Government's stake in Lloyds Bank, which hit more than 43% following the financial crash, was finally totally unwound in 2017. NatWest is far off this level.

The Government was handed its shares in the banks in 2008 after announcing a £37 billion injection of capital into the sector.

Then prime minister Gordon Brown was clear at the time that it was not an attempt to nationalise the banks, but that they would be sold back "at the right time".

Just received a cheque.
It is to compensate me for the disproportionately high "contributions" I made.
Thank you Signature !

Signature have gone very quiet on the possibility of the small claimants getting a partial return on their "contributions" which is a shame.

This was the recent comment from IG:

RBS share price: technical analysis (first-half earnings 31 July)

Royal Bank of Scotland (RBS) has seen only limited upside since the March lows, with the spike to 140p in June followed by steep losses. This was followed up by a range-bound trading pattern, with gains capped around 127p and downside held around 118p. Longer-term gains back in the direction of 140p will have to await a rally through 127p, while a drop below 115p raises the prospect of a move back to 100p.


The share price is now below 115p.

2019 profits was over 4Bn so 1.8Bn loss provision is already factored into the lower share price (compared to 2019 share price). What I don't understand is how share price was much higher 5 years ago when the company was making larges losses!

With p/e ratio of under 5 (lower than piers with lower bad debts), I expect things to improve in long term

Not sure if this name change is a good or bad thing, the share price is not liking it much, even though good profits.

plus was this the best ticker NWG.L

The gov are in the hook here for nearly 3 quid a share, they either cut their losses and sell to RBS for less (an then the share price goes up) or wait for i5 to get to that price, then sell ((an then the share price goes up).
Am happy either way. It's all gravy as they say ;)

I was with Barclays Smart Investor. I closed my investor account with them about a year ago. That’s just because I was tired of paying their monthly admin fees without any certain sign of growth with RBS. I had stocks in RBS before I closed that account.
The reason I had a trading account with Barclays is because you could merge it together with your current account and this made dealing more efficient. If your bank has a platform for investors, maybe you should opt to use their platform so you could have your current account and your investor account on the same page (yes, you can with Barclays, and probably with Santander too).

Another reason I closed my investor account and am no longer a stockbroker is because I didn’t trust Brexit. This might seem irrelevant but a lot of pro-brexiteers didn’t want to acknowledge that Brexit was going to have a mal-effect on the stock market - or perhaps pinning their hopes that it wouldn’t - saying things like remainers were acting like it was “the end of the world” and now ironically in the climate of corona.. somehow.. people are calling it that. I guess “remain” voters had already foreseen it. Not corona, of course, since that’s apparently unrelated. But I’m talking about the plummeting share prices.

If and when I open an portfolio again it will not be with Barclays but (i.e. the share centre). It’s quite a neat platform and attractive to investors who are only willing to invest a small amount because the monthly admin fees are a lot lower at £2 per month if you invest under £750 - hence attractive to small investors. In the current climate I’m not looking to invest anything big or anything at all for that matter. I am looking to invest with the share centre, however, if I was looking to invest again. Hence, I’m no longer a stockbroker but a prospective one now. I no longer have shares with RBS. I don’t trust the current climate. That’s not just about Brexit.

Investec turns buyer on Royal Bank of Scotland:

The UK Government chose to acquire 84.4% of RBS during 2008/9 at c.£5 per share. A decade later, with the shares at c.£1 and a residual stake of 62.2%, its stated intention is to achieve a full exit by 2025. Is the Government actually intending to engage in self-harm? The 2019 final dividend was cancelled, the CET1 capital ratio has been rebased from 16.2% to a “preposterous”pro-forma 17.0%, no dividends are to be paid during 2020 and the UK economy has been placed in lockdown. UK base rate is now 0.1%. None of this is helping, but…

Clearly we expect the UK’s lockdow n to trigger a recession, tipping RBS into loss in 2020e. We forecast a loss per share of 5.5p in 2020e.

However, in the context of RBS’ 2019 pro-forma CET1 capital ratio of 17.0% w e see no material capital impact; we expect it to run with a significant surplus over its 13-14% target through 2020-22e . We regard this as a “political” decision, rather than an economic or pragmatic judgement.

Following cancellation of the 2019 final dividend, our tNAV per share forecasts are rebased higher. We now forecast only a 5.8p YoY reduction to 261.9p in 2020e against which the shares trade on 0.4x.

Even though we continue to assume a zero dividend for 2020e, in the context of our EPS forecasts of 6.5p/13.3p in 2021/22e and RBS’ “bloated” capital base, w e model a relatively “full” pay-out of 6.0p/12.0p DPS in 2021/22e; a prospective dividend yield of 5.6%/11.3%.

What could go wrong? Well, w e think that w e already assume that quite a lot of things will! Impairments rose by 75% YoY to £0.7bn in 2019 and w e continue to model a further 300% YoY increase to £2.8bn in 2020e. We also assume that revenues w ill fall by 12% YoY in 2020e reflecting both “low er forever” interest rates and sharply low er other income.

We do remain concerned that banks could be “coerced” by Government into “reckless” new crisis lending. We hope that they w ill maintain discipline, and w e draw comfort from the fact that RBS states it is only lending (under government-backed schemes) “to our own customers and within risk appetite”.

On 0.4x 2019 tNAV for ROTEs of -2.1%/+2.5%/+4.9% 2020/21/22e, we cut our TP to 135p (from 140p) but with almost 30% implied upside, we upgrade to Buy (from Hold). The Q1 2020 IMS is due on 1 May
