LLoyds Unveils HBOS Takeover Date
By Sky News
Lloyds TSB says it hopes to complete its takeover of Halifax Bank of Scotland by January next year.
Shareholders will be able to vote on the proposed deal in November.
Last week Lloyds (Advertisement)
TSB announced it had revised the terms of the transaction.
Investors were concerned that HBOS shares had plummeted since two sides shook hands on deal.
They will now get 0.605 Lloyds shares for every HBOS share they hold - the original offer was 0.833 Lloyds shares.
News if the revised terms came after the banks were forced to deny reports the merger had fallen through.
Lloyds had initially agreed to pay 9.8bn for its rival but there were fears the sum was too high because of a dive in the HBOS share price.
The new 'superbank' will get an injection of capital from the Government, which is to invest up to 37bn in ailing British banks.
Some 41% of the new bank - which may be called LLoyds HBOS - will be owned by the Government, which will appoint two board members.
HBOS chief executive Andy Hornby and chairman Dennis Stevenson will leave once the deal goes through.

They seem to be taking a long time getting the details of this open offer together, in the mean time pi continue to buy in to qualify for the offer. Maybe thats the cunning plan.

HSBC Ups Barclays, Lloyds Banking To Overweight
HSBC upgrades Barclays (BARC.LN) and Lloyds Banking Group (LLOY.LN) to overweight from neutral and keeps an overweight rating on Royal Bank of Scotland (RBS.LN). Says the rally in UK bank stocks over the past few weeks is about a return to certainty rather than the macroeconomic outlook. For Barclays, this certainty comes from the bank's forecast of impairments at 130-150 basis points. For Lloyds and RBS, it comes as result of the UK asset protection scheme. HSBC raises Barclays target price to 300p from 110p, Lloyds to 150p from 40p and RBS to 50p from 30p. Barclays shares +3.5% at 241p, Lloyds +4.0% at 100p and RBS +4.5% at 34p.

These anaylists have proved again what a waste of space they are when it comes to banks, how can they go from a price target of 40p to 150p for lloyds. All it shows is that nobody can value banks, it's a guessing game.
