Santander And Virgin Eyes On RBS Branch Takeover

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.
