05:38 EDTLYGLloyds expects external environment to remain challenging in 2012
Remains confident that medium-term financial targets, as set out in its June 2011 Strategic Review are achievable over time. Lloyds says as anticipated, it now expects the attainment of income related targets, including for other operating income, to be delayed beyond 2014 as a result of the weaker than expected economic outlook. As a consequence, also expects the attainment of its return on equity target to be delayed beyond 2014. Given expectation of further deposit growth, expect to reach medium-term Group loan-to-deposit ratio target of 130% or below by the end of 2012, two years ahead of plan. For 2012, Lloyds expects income to be lower than 2011 given the economic outlook, further non-core asset reductions, subdued demand in the core loan book, higher wholesale funding costs, and interest rates likely to remain at low levels for longer. Also sees full year banking net interest margin to be below 2% in 2012, falling year-on-year by approximately the same amount in 2012 as in 2011, primarily driven by continuing high wholesale funding costs.
