Santander And Virgin Eyes On RBS Branch Takeover
Dec 16 15
Santander UK (SAN.MC) and Virgin Money are said to be considering moves to take over a Royal Bank of Scotland banking unit. Santander UK could be planning to buy more than 300 branches from Royal Bank of Scotland (RBS) three years after it abandoned the same deal. Sky News has learnt that Santander UK and Virgin Money are two of the parties indirectly referred to in a statement issued by the taxpyer-backed RBS on December 16, 2015, which referred to a number of informal approaches for its Williams & Glyn (W&G) business. Neither Santander UK nor Virgin Money has tabled a formal proposal to buy W&G, and could yet choose not to do so, according to people close to the situation. RBS confirmed that it was planning to launch an auction of W&G next year alongside preparations for floating what would be Britain's seventh-largest bank on the London Stock Exchange. Insiders said the auction would be run by advisers at Bank of America Merrill Lynch and Robey Warshaw, and could value W&G at as much as £2 billion.
Virgin Group Faces Lawsuit for $300 Million in Dispute over Cruise Line
Mar 11 15
The former Chief Executive Officer of Norwegian Cruise Line is suing British billionaire Richard Branson and his Virgin Group, claiming that Virgin essentially stole his ideas and business plans to enter the luxury cruise industry. The lawsuit was filed in Miami federal court on behalf of Colin Veitch and his VSM Development Company. It seeks more than $300 million in damages and asks a judge to stop London-based Virgin from going forward with its recently announced Miami-based cruise line. The lawsuit contends Virgin reneged on a May 2011 agreement with Veitch over how estimated profits would be split. Veitch would get nothing if the 4,200-passenger "ultra" ships were not profitable but could earn $315 million if projections were met.
