HBOS takeover nets commercial property fund execs £1m

The takeover of HBOS by Lloyds has netted its bosses more than £1million in shares, the Independent has reported.

The Lloyds buyout triggered a change-of-control clause at commercial property fund Invista Real Estate Asset Management, in which HBOS had a 55 per cent stake.

When the merger took place it released share options payable in April to chief executive Duncan Owen (£664,321) and his deputy, Philip Gadsden (£531,456).

Guy Eastaugh, the finance director, will receive shares valued at £328,532 and company secretary Mark Lawson will net almost £50,000, the paper reported.

When Lloyds bought HBOS last week, it formed Lloyds Banking Group.

Further mergers are likely in the residential lending markets. The Britannia Building Society and Co-operative Financial Services are set to unite and form a so-called ‘super-mutual’ business serving nine million savers.

  1. Hi would you mind stating which blog platform you’reusing? I’m looking to start my own blog soon but I’m having a tough time selectingbetween BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.The reason I ask is because your design and style seems different then most blogs and I’mlooking for something unique. P.S Apologies for gettingoff-topic but I had to ask!

  2. I travel all around the world for work, and it used to be really lonely. Now I can go onto Tinder and have a date lined up in a new city before I even get out of the airport!
