Royal Bank of Scotland Group PLC
7 December 2015
 
 
Disposal of a portfolio of Irish Real Estate Loans
 
The Royal Bank of Scotland Group plc (RBS) announces today that its subsidiaries, Ulster Bank Ireland Limited (UBIL) and Ulster Bank Limited (UBL) have entered into an agreement to dispose of a portfolio of Irish real estate loans to a subsidiary of Cairn Homes plc and an affiliate of Lone Star Funds.
 
At completion, UBIL and UBL will receive cash consideration of approximately £360m* at current exchange rates. Completion is expected by the end of this year. The sale proceeds will be used for general corporate purposes.
 
The transaction, which represents RWA equivalent of c.£700m as at 31 December 2014, is part of the continued reduction of assets in RBS Capital Resolution and is in line with the bank's plan to strengthen its capital position and reduce higher risk exposures.
 
The carrying value of the loans as at 31 December 2014 was approximately £115m. The gross assets were approximately £1.63bn and the loans generated a loss of approximately £28m in the year to 31 December 2014. The transaction is expected to generate a gain compared to carrying value of approximately £245m after associated costs, which will be recognised in Q4 2015.
