09:53 EDTLYGLloyds Banking outlook lowered to negative from stable by S&P
Standard & Poor's Ratings noted Lloyds has recently announced a further GBP1B provision in relation to payment protection insurance, bringing the cumulative provision over the past two years to about GBP5.3B. S&P said, "This charge, together with other exceptional items, negatively affects our assessment of Lloyds' capital and earnings. As a result, we are less likely to revise this assessment to "adequate" from "moderate" over the next 12 months. We are therefore revising our outlook on the long-term rating on Lloyds to negative from stable. We are also affirming our 'A/A-1' ratings on Lloyds."
