The New Tier 2 Notes will be in bearer form in denominations of £100,000 and integral multiples of £1,000 in excess thereof up to and including £199,000, and will initially be issued in global form.

 

Applications are intended to be made to the Financial Conduct Authority under Part VI of the Financial Services and Markets Act 2000 for the New Tier 2 Notes to be admitted to the Official List of the Financial Conduct Authority and to the London Stock Exchange plc for the New Tier 2 Notes to be admitted to trading on the London Stock Exchange's regulated market. The London Stock Exchange's regulated market is a regulated market for the purposes of Directive 2014/65/EU of the European Parliament and of the Council on markets in financial instruments. Such admission is expected to occur on the Settlement Date.

 

Further details of the New Tier 2 Notes are set out in the Exchange Offer Memorandum.

 

Holders whose Existing Notes Offered for Exchange are not accepted, or who do not participate in the Exchange Offers, will not be eligible to receive New Tier 2 Notes in exchange for such Existing Notes, will not be entitled to receive any Cash Consideration Amount and will continue to hold such Existing Notes subject to their terms and conditions.

 

Exchange Consideration, New Tier 2 Notes Consideration Amounts and Cash Consideration Amounts

Holders who validly Offered to Exchange their Existing Notes at or prior to the Expiration Time and whose Offers to Exchange have been accepted will receive New Tier 2 Notes in an amount (rounded down to the nearest £1,000) based upon the aggregate principal amount of such Existing Notes accepted for exchange and the relevant New Tier 2 Notes Consideration Amount, subject to the requirement for each Holder to exchange at least the relevant Minimum Offer Amount.

 

Where applicable, each such Holder will also be entitled to receive, in respect of each £1,000 in principal amount of the Existing Notes accepted for exchange, the Cash Consideration Amount (if any). For avoidance of doubt, the sum of the New Tier 2 Notes Consideration Amount, the Cash Consideration Amount (if any) and the Cash Rounding Amount (if any, as detailed below) shall be equal to the Exchange Consideration when expressed as an amount per £1,000 in principal amount of the Existing Notes accepted for exchange. 

 

Accrued Interest Payments and Cash Rounding Amounts

If, as a result of the application of the relevant New Tier 2 Notes Consideration Amount, a Holder who validly Offered to Exchange Existing Notes at or prior to the Expiration Time and whose Offer to Exchange has been accepted would be entitled to receive an aggregate principal amount of New Tier 2 Notes that is not an integral multiple of £1,000, the Offeror will pay, or procure that there is paid, in cash in sterling to that Holder on the Settlement Date, a Cash Rounding Amount, which is the amount equal to the fractional portion of such aggregate principal amount that is not such an integral multiple (rounded to the nearest £0.01, with half a penny being rounded upwards).

 

Each such Holder will also be entitled to receive any applicable Accrued Interest Payments in respect of their Existing Notes accepted for exchange. Accordingly, given that the Accrued Interest Payments will be paid pursuant to the relevant Exchange Offer, Holders whose Existing Notes have been accepted for exchange pursuant to the Exchange Offers will not be entitled to receive any further payment pursuant to the terms of such Existing Notes in respect of accrued and unpaid interest. Furthermore, Holders of any Lloyds Bank Perpetual Securities which have been accepted for exchange will not be entitled to receive any further payment, shares or other compensation in respect of any deferred and unpaid coupons in respect of such Lloyds Bank Perpetual Securities; consideration for deferred and unpaid coupons is deemed to be included in the applicable Exchange Consideration.

 

Settlement Date

The Settlement Date for each of the Exchange Offers, including (i) delivery of the New Tier 2 Notes in exchange for Existing Notes validly Offered for Exchange and accepted and (ii) payment of Accrued Interest Payments, Cash Rounding Amounts (if any) and Cash Consideration Amounts (if any), is expected to be on or around 3 December 2020.
