Anyone getting involved with this when it eventually happens? I'm thinking this could be a tidy little earner if it all goes correctly. For information - Lloyds was bailed out by the UK Government who has held shares in the company for years now. The treasury has finally got its act together and is about ready to sell off these shares, but they want to do so in order that they are spread more evenly amongst the population, rather than all being bought up by hungry hedge funds. These are the rules: [h=3]Anyone applying for less than £1,000 worth of Lloyds shares in the share sale will be given priority.[/h] [h=3]Applicants who hold their shares for more than a year will receive a bonus share for every 10 shares they buy, up to a value of £200.[/h] [h=3]Members of the public will be offered a discount of 5% of the market price.[/h] So, will any Brits on here be taking up the offer? Does anyone see any potential pitfalls?
