Redemption of Non-Cumulative Dollar Preference Shares

7 August 2017

The Royal Bank of Scotland Group plc ("RBSG") has given notice to holders of the redemption of certain series of Non-Cumulative Dollar Preference Shares (together, the "Preference Shares") listed below.

The Preference Shares will cease to accrue dividends and shall be cancelled and all unmatured dividend coupons and talons (if any) shall become void for any purpose, as from the relevant redemption date. 

The Series F ADSs, the Series H ADSs and the Series L ADSs will cease to trade on the New York Stock Exchange from the Series F Preference Shares Redemption Date, the Series H Preference Shares Redemption Date and the Series L Preference Shares Redemption Date, respectively. An application will be made to the U.K. Financial Conduct Authority, in its capacity as the U.K. Listing Authority, to cancel the listings of the Series 1 Dollar Preference Shares on the Official List of the U.K. Listing Authority. An application will also be made to the London Stock Exchange for the cancellation of the trading in the Series 1 Dollar Preference Shares on the London Stock Exchange's main market for listed securities.

The redemption amount with respect to each series of Preference Shares shall be paid out of distributable reserves of RBSG. Approximately £0.93 billion (equivalent) of the Preference Shares are expected to be redeemed, reducing RBSG's retained earnings and distributable items by approximately £0.93 billion.
