See the Beurs XL UPDATE here and find out that the RBS trio bids about 8,6 billion more than Barclays. The division is:
- RBoS pays 27,2 billion euro for 38,2 % and desires the American and Asian bits of ABN AMRO,
- Fortis pays 24 billion euro for 33,8 % and gets Benelux, private banking and asset management,
- Santander pays 19,9 billion euro for the Brazilian and Italian activities.
To fund all this, Fortis will do a share emission for 15 billion euro, but it will also sell off some assets (see FD report here). The brand ABN AMRO will continue to exist.
