Royal Bank of Scotland Group plc : AnaCap Eyes Royal Bank of Scotland Branches - Financial Times

11/23/2012 | 01:58am US/Eastern

Royal Bank of Scotland PLC (RBS.LN) has attracted interest from a second private equity group looking at a potential bid for hundreds of its branches that were put back up for sale after the collapse of a deal with Santander, reports the Financial Times Friday, citing people close to the situation.

AnaCap Financial Partners, a London-based private equity group, is said to be interested in a potential bid for the 316 branches, said that person. The group completed the first private equity buyout of a U.K. bank in 2009 when it bought Ruffler Bank, a lender later renamed Aldermore.

A deal to sell the RBS estate, initially valued at GBP1.65 billion, collapsed after Spanish bank Santander pulled the plug last month, citing concerns over delays to the completion date, largely caused by mismatched IT systems.

JC Flowers, the private equity group founded by Christopher Flowers, as well as Nationwide Building Society and Sir Richard Branson's Virgin Money have not ruled out making bids, the report said, citing people with knowledge of the situation.
