RBS Securities Inc. Key Developments

RBS Settles Certain RMBS Claims with the National Credit Union Administration

The Royal Bank of Scotland Group plc has reached a final settlement with the National Credit Union Administration Board to resolve two outstanding civil lawsuits for USD 1.1 billion (£846 million). The settlements, involving its subsidiary RBS Securities Inc., relate to the two residential mortgage-backed securities (RMBS) cases (asserting claims on behalf of US Central Federal Credit Union and Western Corporate Federal Credit Union), most recently disclosed in RBS's 2016 Interim Results Announcement. The settlement amount is substantially covered by existing provisions as of 30 June 2016 and will have no material impact on the RBS Group's CET1 ratio. RBS continues to litigate various other RMBS-related civil claims identified in its disclosure, including those of the Federal Housing Finance Agency, and to respond to investigations by the civil and criminal divisions of the U.S. Department of Justice and various other members of the RMBS Working Group of the Financial Fraud Enforcement Task Force (including several state attorneys general). As previously stated, RMBS litigation and investigations may require additional provisions in future periods that in aggregate could be materially in excess of the provisions existing as of 30 June 2016.

U.S. Subsidiaries of Nomura Holdings, Inc. Files an Appeal to the United States Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit

The U.S. subsidiaries of Nomura Holdings, Inc. have filed an appeal to The United States Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit. The United States District Court for the Southern District of New York issued a judgment on May 15, 2015, in the proceedings commenced by the Federal Housing Finance Agency, as conservator for the government sponsored enterprises Federal National Mortgage Association and Federal Home Loan Mortgage Corporation, against Nomura Asset Acceptance Corporation, Nomura Home Equity Loan, Inc., Nomura Credit & Capital, Inc., Nomura Securities International, Inc. and Nomura Holding America Inc., and RBS Securities Inc. as an underwriter. After consideration of the Opinion and Order on which the judgment is based, the Company's U.S. subsidiaries believe the District Court made significant legal errors and have determined to appeal. The Company's subsidiaries believe that their appeal has merit and intend to pursue it vigorously.

United States District Court for the Southern District of New York Issues Judgment against RBS Securities, Nomura Holdings, Inc and its Subsidiaries

On May 15, 2015, the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York issued a judgment in the proceedings against Nomura Asset Acceptance Corporation (NAAC), Nomura Home Equity Loan Inc. (NHEL), Nomura Credit & Capital, Inc., Nomura Securities International, Inc. and Nomura Holding America Inc., each a Nomura Holdings, Inc. and RBS Securities Inc. as an underwriter commenced by the Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA), as conservator for the government sponsored enterprises, Federal National Mortgage Association and Federal Home Loan Mortgage Corporation (the GSEs) in September 2011. In September 2011, the FHFA commenced proceedings in the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York against numerous issuers, sponsors and underwriters of residential mortgage-backed securities (RMBS) and their controlling persons, including the company's U.S. subsidiaries. The action alleged that the GSEs purchased RMBS issued by NAAC and NHEL for which the offering materials contained untrue statements or omitted material facts concerning the underwriting standards used by the original lenders and the characteristics of the loans underlying the securities and sought rescission of its purchases. The District Court held, after a bench trial, that FHFA proved that the offering materials for certificates issued by NAAC and NHEL and purchased by the GSEs contained material misstatements entitling FHFA to rescission. The District Court ordered the defendants to pay $806 million to GSEs upon GSEs' delivery of the certificates at issue to the Defendants. The company will review the judgment and will consider all options, including appeal. This judgment is expected to have insignificant impact on the company's consolidated performance. Further notice will be released if any matters requiring disclosure should occur in the future.
