BASIS OF PRESENTATION

This release covers the results of Lloyds Banking Group plc together with its subsidiaries (the Group) for the nine months ended 30 September 2016.

Statutory basis: Statutory information is set out on page 9. However, a number of factors have had a significant effect on the comparability of the Group's financial position and results. Accordingly, the results are also presented on an underlying basis.

Underlying basis: The statutory results are adjusted for certain items which are listed below, to allow a comparison of the Group's underlying performance.

- losses on redemption of the Enhanced Capital Notes and the volatility in the value of the embedded equity conversion feature;

- market volatility and other items, which includes the effects of certain asset sales, the volatility relating to the Group's own debt and hedging arrangements as well as that arising in the insurance businesses, insurance gross up, the unwind of acquisition-related fair value adjustments and the amortisation of purchased intangible assets;

- restructuring costs, comprising severance related costs relating to the Simplification programme and the costs of implementing regulatory reform and ring-fencing;

- TSB build and dual-running costs and the loss relating to the TSB sale in 2015; and

- payment protection insurance and other conduct provisions.

Unless otherwise stated, income statement commentaries throughout this document compare the nine months ended 30 September 2016 to the nine months ended 30 September 2015, and the balance sheet analysis compares the Group balance sheet as at 30 September 2016 to the Group balance sheet as at 31 December 2015.

Alternative performance measures: The Group uses a number of alternative performance measures, including underlying profit, in the discussion of its business performance and financial position. Further information on these measures is set out on page 15.

GROUP CHIEF EXECUTIVE'S STATEMENT

In the first nine months of the year the Group has delivered a robust underlying performance with a strong improvement in statutory profit and strong capital generation. Our differentiated, UK focused, simple, low risk business model continues to deliver and as a result we are reaffirming our stated 2016 guidance.

 

Strategic progress

We remain focused on delivering on our targets to support people, businesses and communities as set out in our Helping Britain Prosper Plan. We are making good progress against our strategic priorities: creating the best customer experience; becoming simpler and more efficient; and delivering sustainable growth. In the last 12 months we have grown net lending to SMEs by 4 per cent and have also grown net lending in both credit card balances and motor finance while continuing to grow our bulk annuity business. We remain committed to helping first-time buyers onto the housing ladder whilst continuing to balance risk and margin considerations versus volume in mortgages. We also continue to operate the UK's largest branch network and the largest digital bank with 12.4 million online users and 7.8 million mobile users of our top-rated apps.

 

The hard work undertaken in the last five years to transform and simplify the business has allowed the UK government to sell most of its stake in the Group, returning £17 billion including dividends on its original £20 billion investment. We welcome the recent decision to recommence the sale of its shares.

 

Well positioned to become the best bank for customers and shareholders

The outlook for the UK economy remains uncertain, however the strength of the recovery in recent years means the UK is well positioned. The Group's transformation and successful execution of strategy, along with its competitive advantages in costs and risk, also position us well for the future and to achieve our goal of becoming the best bank for customers and shareholders.
