Based on the fact that the total number of shares of British TSB Banking is about 500 million, we can assume that the transaction amount will reach about 1.7 billion pounds (2.56 billion dollars).

The Council of TSB acknowledges having received a preliminary takeover bid from Sabadell, which may or may not lead to a formal proposal for the entire share capital of the company. Offer includes 340 pence in cash per share TSB", - said in a press release TSB representative.

Sabadell should take the final decision on the acquisition of the British bank until the evening on April 9. The deal between the two companies will also have to get approval from regulatory authorities, the report says.

According to preliminary discussions of representatives of both companies, Sabadell, in the case of the transaction, will support and accelerate TSB retail growth strategy and expand the presence of the British bank in the small and medium-sized businesses.

Sabadell is a strong competitor in the domestic market (Spain - Ed.), it also secured a successful international presence in the United States. Sabadell believes that the current dynamics of the banking sector and the macroeconomic environment makes the UK an attractive market for future investments, - said the TSB, whose shares jumped 26% on such news.

Lloyds TSB has absorbed during the 2008-2009 crisis, while receiving state aid by 30 billion dollars. Now the EU antitrust authorities require the bank to sell part of its assets. For its part, the fifth largest bank in Spain, Banco Sabadell will be able to expand its presence abroad and thus compensate for the decline in the national market of financial services.
