PRESS RELEASE       

10 January 2018

 

Accelerated bookbuild offering of 24.3 million existing shares in OneSavings Bank Plc

Further to the announcement released on 9 January 2018, Citigroup Global Markets Limited ("Citi") and Credit Suisse Securities (Europe) Limited ("Credit Suisse") announce that funds managed and advised by J.C. Flowers & Co. LLC (the "JCF Funds") have sold approx. 24.3 million shares in OneSavings Bank Plc, representing approx. 10% of the share capital in the company. The shares were sold at 390 pence per share, equating to gross proceeds of approx. £95 million for JCF Funds.

The proceeds of the Placing are payable in cash on usual settlement terms, and closing of the Placing is expected to occur on a T+2 basis on 12 January 2018, subject to the satisfaction or waiver of certain customary conditions. Citi and Credit Suisse are acting as joint global coordinators and joint bookrunners in the transaction and N M Rothschild & Sons Limited ("Rothschild") is acting as the sole financial adviser to J.C. Flowers & Co. LLC on the transaction.

As previously disclosed, a number of existing shares in OneSavings Bank Plc held on behalf of the JCF Funds equal to approx. 9% of the number sold under the bookbuild process ("Investor Shares") have been distributed to certain investors in the JCF Funds ("Investors"). For the avoidance of doubt, these Investor Shares are separate and in addition to the shares sold under the bookbuild arrangements.

Lock-up commitments for the period from the closing of the transaction until the release of OneSaving's Bank's Preliminary Results for 2017, subject to certain customary exceptions, have been given by the JCF Funds.

OneSavings Bank Plc will not receive any proceeds from the transaction.
