Lloyds Shareholders Lose £385M Suit Over HBOS Takeover


Law 360, 15/11/2019

Lloyds Bank shareholders lost a £385 million ($495 million) lawsuit over its ill-fated acquisition of HBOS at the height of the financial crisis, as a judge ruled Friday that investors knew that risks were baked into the deal. High Court Judge Alastair Norris dismissed the suit, which was brought by approximately 6,000 former shareholders in Lloyds who claimed the bank had 'mugged them' into accepting its deal to buy HBOS by keeping investors in the dark about the state of the lender's finances. … Lloyds is represented by Helen Davies QC and Tony Singla of Brick Court Chambers, instructed by Herbert Smith Freehills LLP.
