The table below sets out the expected reduction in post-tax profits in the relevant reporting period of NatWest Group plc (on a consolidated and a solo legal entity basis) and NatWest Markets N.V. ("NWM N.V.") following the repurchase of their respective U.S. dollar denominated notes. This follows our announcement released on 10 August 2022 at 6:18 pm under RNS No. 6282V.

Impact - Post tax gain / (loss)

£(124m) 2




€(83m) 3



1.  Determined using the applicable f oreign exchange rates on August 10, 2022.


2.  After taking into account the estimated effect of taxation, and based on risk weighted assets of £179.8 billion as reported for June 30, 2022, this would equate to a reduction in NatWest Group plc's (consolidated) CET1 capital ratio of approximately 7bps.


3.  After taking into account the estimated effect of taxation, and the effect of the unwinding of a related hedging transaction with NatWest Group plc (solo), NWM N.V. does not expect its repurchases to have a material impact on its CET1 capital ratio.
