Forward-looking Statements

This document contains certain forward-looking statements within the meaning of Section 21E of the US Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, and Section 27A of the US Securities Act of 1933, as amended, with respect to certain of the Group’s plans and its current goals and expectations relating to its future financial condition and performance. Barclays cautions readers that no forward-looking statement is a guarantee of future performance and that actual results could differ materially from those contained in the forward-looking statements. These forward-looking statements can be identified by the fact that they do not relate only to historical or current facts. Forward-looking statements sometimes use words such as “may”, “will”, “seek”, “continue”, “aim”, “anticipate”, “target”, “expect”, “estimate”, “intend”, “plan”, “goal”, “believe” or other words of similar meaning. Examples of forward-looking statements include, among others, statements regarding the Group’s future financial position, income growth, assets, impairment charges, business strategy, capital ratios, leverage, payment of dividends, projected levels of growth in the banking and financial markets, projected costs, estimates of capital expenditures, and plans and objectives for future operations and other statements that are not historical fact. By their nature, forward-looking statements involve risk and uncertainty because they relate to future events and circumstances, including, but not limited to, UK domestic and global economic and business conditions, the effects of continued volatility in credit markets, market related risks such as changes in interest rates and exchange rates, effects of changes in valuation of credit market exposures, changes in valuation of issued notes, the policies and actions of governmental and regulatory authorities, changes in legislation, the further development of standards and interpretations under International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) applicable to past, current and future periods, evolving practices with regard to the interpretation and application of standards under IFRS, the outcome of pending and future litigation, the success of future acquisitions and other strategic transactions and the impact of competition – a number of such factors being beyond the Group’s control. As a result, the Group’s actual future results may differ materially from the plans, goals, and expectations set forth in the Group’s forward-looking statements.

Any forward-looking statements made herein speak only as of the date they are made. Except as required by the UK Financial Services Authority (FSA), the London Stock Exchange or applicable law, Barclays expressly disclaims any obligation or undertaking to release publicly any updates or revisions to any forward-looking statements contained in this announcement to reflect any change in Barclays expectations with regard thereto or any change in events, conditions or circumstances on which any such statement is based. The reader should, however, consult any additional disclosures that Barclays has made or may make in documents it has filed or may file with the SEC.

This announcement contains (or may contain) certain forward-looking statements within the meaning of Section 21E of the US Securities Exchange Act of 1934 and Section 27A of the US Securities Act of 1933 with respect to certain of Barclays plans and its current goals and expectations relating to its proposed sale of BGI and its future financial condition and performance and which involve a number of risks and uncertainties.

As a result, Barclays actual future results may


differ materially from the plans, goals, and expectations set forth in Barclays forward-looking statements. Any forward-looking statements made herein by or on behalf of Barclays speak only as of the date they are made. Except as required by the Financial Services Authority, the London Stock Exchange plc or applicable law, Barclays expressly disclaims any obligation or undertaking to release publicly any updates or revisions to any forward-looking statements contained in this announcement to reflect any changes in Barclays expectations with regard thereto or any changes in events, conditions or circumstances on which any such statement is based. The reader should, however, consult any additional disclosures that Barclays has made or may make in documents it has filed or may file with the Securities and Exchange Commission.

Notwithstanding anything in this announcement to the contrary, there is and can be no assurance that the transaction announced (or any part thereof) will be consummated in the manner described herein.

Barclays Capital, the investment banking division of Barclays Bank, is acting exclusively for Barclays and Barclays Bank and for no-one else in relation to the sale of BGI, and will not be responsible to any other person for providing the protections afforded to clients of Barclays Capital nor for providing advice in connection with the sale of BGI or the matters referred to in this announcement.

Morgan Cazenove Limited nor for providing advice to any other person in relation to the sale of BGI or the matters referred to in this announcement.

Forward-looking statements sometimes use words such as 'will', 'would', 'could', 'aim', 'anticipate', 'target', 'expect', 'envisage', 'estimate', 'intend', 'intention', 'plan', 'goal', 'believe', or other words of similar meaning. Examples of forward-looking statements include, among others, statements regarding Barclays expected sale of BGI, subject to CVC's rights, its future financial position, income growth, profit before tax, impairment charges, business strategy, projected levels of growth in the banking and financial markets, projected costs, estimates of capital expenditure, expected capital ratios, plans with respect to dividend payments, and plans and objectives for future operations of Barclays and other statements that are not historical fact.

By their nature, forward-looking statements involve risk and uncertainty because they relate to future events and circumstances, including, but not limited to, CVC's rights under the CVC Transaction, various conditions to closing, UK domestic and global economic and business conditions, the effects of continued volatility in credit markets, liquidity conditions in the market, market-related risks such as changes in interest rates and exchange rates, effects of changes in valuation of credit market exposures, changes in valuation of issued notes, the policies and actions of governmental and regulatory authorities, changes in legislation, the further development of standards and interpretations under IFRS applicable to past, current and future periods, evolving practices with regard to the interpretation and application of standards under IFRS, progress in the integration of the Lehman Brothers North American businesses into the group's business and the quantification of the benefits resulting from such acquisition, the outcome of pending and future litigation, the success of future acquisitions and other strategic transactions and the impact of competition, a number of which factors are beyond Barclays control. As a result, Barclays actual future results may differ materially from the plans, goals, and expectations set forth in Barclays forward-looking statements. Any forward-looking statements made herein by or on behalf of Barclays speak only as of the date they are made. Except as required by the Financial Services Authority, the London Stock Exchange plc or applicable law, Barclays expressly disclaims any obligation or undertaking to release publicly any updates or revisions to any forward-looking statements contained in this announcement to reflect any changes in Barclays expectations with regard thereto or any changes in events, conditions or circumstances on which any such statement is based. The reader should, however, consult any additional disclosures that Barclays has made or may make in documents it has filed or may file with the Securities and Exchange Commission.

Nothing in this announcement is intended or is to be construed as a profit forecast or to be interpreted to mean that earnings per Barclays share for the current or future financial years, or those of the enlarged group, will necessarily match or exceed the historical published earnings per Barclays share.

Notwithstanding anything in this announcement to the contrary, there is and can be no assurance that the transaction announced (or any part thereof) will be consummated in the manner described herein.

Barclays Capital, the investment banking division of Barclays Bank, is acting exclusively for Barclays and Barclays Bank and for no-one else in relation to the sale of BGI, and will not be responsible to any other person for providing the protections afforded to clients of Barclays Capital nor for providing advice in connection with the sale of BGI or the matters referred to in this announcement.

Lazard & Co. Limited is acting exclusively for Barclays and Barclays Bank and for no-one else in relation to the sale of BGI, and will not be responsible to any other person for providing the protections afforded to clients of Lazard & Co. Limited nor for providing advice in connection with the sale of BGI or the matters referred to in this announcement.

J.P. Morgan Cazenove Limited, which is authorised and regulated in the United Kingdom by the Financial Services Authority, is acting for Barclays and Barclays Bank and for no-one else in connection with the sale of BGI, and will not be responsible to anyone other than Barclays and Barclays Bank for proving the protections afforded to customers of J.P. Morgan Cazenove Limited nor for providing advice to any other person in relation to the sale of BGI or the matters referred to in this announcement.

Any forward-looking statements made herein by or on behalf of Barclays speak only as of the date they are made. Except as required by the FSA, the London Stock Exchange or applicable law, Barclays expressly disclaims any obligation or undertaking to release publicly any updates or revisions to any forward-looking statements contained in this announcement to reflect any changes in Barclays expectations with regard thereto or any changes in events, conditions or circumstances on which any such statement is based.
