Abstract
In our view, Lloyds Banking Group PLC (Lloyds) has made steady progress over the past year to improve several areas of its financial profile. We are therefore revising the stand-alone credit profile (SACP) of Lloyds' core U.K. bank subsidiaries by one notch to 'a-' from 'bbb+'. At the same time, we are raising the ratings on these subsidiaries' nondeferrable subordinated debt and "must pay" perpetual subordinated capital instruments by one notch to 'BBB+' and 'BB+', respectively. We are also affirming the 'A+/A-1' counterparty credit ratings on Lloyds' core U.K. bank subsidiaries. The stable outlook reflects our expectation that Lloyds' financial profile will improve sufficiently by end-2012 to eliminate the current two-notch gap between the counterparty credit rating and the SACP....
