08:41 EDTLYGLloyds confirms settlements totalling GBP218M to resolve LIBOR charges
Lloyds Banking announces that it has reached settlements totalling GBP218M to resolve with U.K. and U.S. federal authorities legacy issues regarding the manipulation several years ago of Group companies' submissions to the British Bankers' Association London Interbank Offered Rate and Sterling Repo Rate. "The Group condemns the actions of the individuals responsible for the conduct in question, which it regards as totally unacceptable and unrepresentative of the cultural changes that the Group has implemented. The actions will be deplored by all employees. The manipulation of submissions covered by the settlements took place between May 2006 and 2009 and the individuals involved have either left the Group, been suspended or are subject to disciplinary proceedings. The Group's Board will now consider all the remuneration implications and potential actions available to it. The issues subject to the settlements were restricted to a specific area of the business and were not known about or condoned by the senior management of the Group at that time. In March 2011, Lloyds Banking Group's management proactively strengthened the systems and controls governing its LIBOR submissions. The Group further supplemented these systems and controls following the publication of the Wheatley Review," Lloyds stated.
