        (1)   Per $1,000 in principal amount of Maximum Tender Notes tendered prior to the Early Tender Deadline and accepted for purchase.

 

The Reference Yield and the Maximum Tender Total Consideration in respect of each Series of Maximum Tender Fixed Rate Notes will be determined at 11:00 a.m., New York City time, today.

 

The Maximum Tender Offer will expire at 11:59 p.m., New York City time, on 25 November 2016, unless extended (such date and time, as the same may be extended, the "Maximum Tender Expiration Deadline") or earlier terminated. The deadline to validly withdraw tenders of Maximum Tender Notes was 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on 9 November 2016 (the "Maximum Tender Withdrawal Deadline"); therefore Maximum Tender Notes that have been tendered and not validly withdrawn prior to the Maximum Tender Withdrawal Deadline may not be withdrawn unless otherwise required by applicable law.

 

The amount of each Series of Maximum Tender Notes that is purchased in the Maximum Tender Offer will be based on the Maximum Tender Cap and the Acceptance Priority Level for such Series, as set forth in the table above, with Acceptance Priority Level 1 being the highest and Acceptance Priority Level 8 being the lowest, provided that any Maximum Tender Notes tendered at or prior to the Early Tender Deadline will be accepted for purchase in priority to any Maximum Tender Notes tendered after the Early Tender Deadline, even if such Maximum Tender Notes tendered following the Early Tender Deadline have a higher Acceptance Priority Level than Maximum Tender Notes tendered on or prior to the Early Tender Deadline. Among any Maximum Tender Notes validly tendered after the Early Tender Deadline but on or prior to the Maximum Tender Expiration Deadline, Maximum Tender Notes having a higher Acceptance Priority Level will be accepted before any Maximum Tender Notes tendered following the Early Tender Deadline having a lower Acceptance Priority Level.

 

Maximum Tender Notes of a Series may be subject to proration if the aggregate principal amount of the Maximum Tender Notes of such Series validly tendered and not validly withdrawn would cause the Maximum Tender Cap to be exceeded.

FORWARD-LOOKING STATEMENTS

Certain statements included in this announcement are forward-looking statements. We and the Group may make forward-looking statements in other documents filed with the SEC that are incorporated by reference into the Offer to Purchase. Forward-looking statements can be identified by the use of forward-looking terminology such as words "expect", "estimate", "project", "anticipate", "believes", "should", "could", 'intend", "plan", "probability", "risk", "target", "goal", "objective", "may", "endeavour", "outlook", "optimistic", "prospects" or by the use of similar expressions or variations on such expressions, or by the discussion of strategy or objectives. Forward-looking statements are based on current plans, estimates and projections, and are subject to inherent risks, uncertainties and other factors which could cause actual results to differ materially from the future results expressed or implied by such forward-looking statements.

In particular, this announcement and certain documents incorporated by reference into the Offer to Purchase include forward-looking statements relating, but not limited to, projections or expectations of LBG's future financial position including profit attributable to shareholders, provisions, economic profit, dividends, capital structure, portfolios, net interest margin, capital ratios, liquidity, risk-weighted assets (RWAs), expenditures or any other financial items or ratios; litigation, regulatory and governmental investigations; LBG's future financial performance; the level and extent of future impairments and write-downs; statements of plans, objectives or goals of LBG or its management including in respect of statements about the future business and economic environments in the U.K. and elsewhere including, but not limited to, future trends in interest rates, foreign exchange rates, credit and equity market levels and demographic developments; statements about competition, regulation, disposals and consolidation or technological developments in the financial services industry; and statements of assumptions underlying such statements. Such statements are subject to risks, uncertainties and other factors which could cause actual results to differ materially from the future results expressed or implied by such forward-looking statements. For example, certain of the market risk disclosures are dependent on choices about key model characteristics, assumptions and estimates, and are subject to various limitations. By their nature, certain of the market risk disclosures are only estimates and, as a result, actual future gains and losses could differ materially from those that have been estimated.

Other factors could also adversely affect our results or the accuracy of forward-looking statements in this announcement, and you should not consider the factors discussed here or in the Annual Report or other documents incorporated by reference into the Offer to Purchase to be a complete set of all potential risks or uncertainties. We have economic, financial market, credit, legal and other specialists who monitor economic and market conditions and government policies and actions. However, because it is difficult to predict with accuracy any changes in economic or market conditions or in governmental policies and actions, it is difficult for us to anticipate the effects that such changes could have on our financial performance and business operations.

The forward-looking statements made in this announcement speak only as of the date of this announcement. We do not intend to publicly update or revise these forward-looking statements to reflect events or circumstances after the date of this announcement and we do not assume any responsibility to do so, except as required by applicable law.
