    U.K.’s Worst Stock of 2019 Gets New Leadership For New Year

    (Bloomberg) -- Want the lowdown on European markets? In your inbox before the open, every day. Sign up here.Metro Bank Plc is set to end 2019 as the U.K.’s biggest laggard, leaving a big task for new leadership to turn around the company and its beleaguered shares.Metro’s 89% drop this year is the worst performance among stocks on the FTSE All-Share benchmark tracking companies listed on London’s main market. The lender’s decline exceeds the 83% plunge for cash-strapped fertilizer-miner Sirius Minerals Plc and the 80% drop for embattled construction services group Kier Group Plc.The challenger bank on Wednesday said Chief Executive Officer Craig Donaldson will depart at the end of the year and will be replaced by Chief Transformation Officer Dan Frumkin as interim CEO while the bank searches for a permanent replacement. Earlier this year, founder Vernon Hill also stepped down as chairman.The shares have sunk over the past 12 months amid a probe by regulators, revealed in February, into how it missclassified certain assets. Concern around deposit withdrawals added momentum to the decline, with the company issuing new equity in May to improve its capital position.“We doubt that a new CEO or plan can resurrect its languishing shares or address its mounting problems,” Bloomberg Intelligence analyst Georgi Gunchev wrote in a note. “Delisting, sale or break-up continue to look like its most viable options.”The shares rose 0.5% as of 9:07 a.m. in London. A spokeswoman for Metro Bank declined to comment on this year’s stock performance.To contact the reporter on this story: Joe Easton in London at jeaston7@bloomberg.netTo contact the editors responsible for this story: Beth Mellor at bmellor@bloomberg.net, Jon MenonFor more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.com©2019 Bloomberg L.P.

    Metro Bank CEO Donaldson follows chairman out of door

    Donaldson, who has been in the role since 2009 and is one of Britain's longest-serving bank CEOs, will be succeeded on an interim basis by Chief Transformation Officer Dan Frumkin from the start of next year, Metro said in a statement. Metro said in October its chairman and founder Vernon Hill had quit two months early and warned it may have to curb its growth plans after posting a third quarter loss. The bank is under investigation by regulators after disclosing it had under-reported its exposure to higher-risk loans by almost 1 billion pounds ($1.28 billion).

    Metro Bank reports third-quarter loss, deposit outflows as Chairman exits

    Britain's troubled Metro Bank reported a loss for the third quarter, said its chairman Vernon Hill has stepped down two months early, and warned it may have to curb its growth plans as it battles to recover from an accounting scandal. Metro Bank on Wednesday also said it saw some 213 million pounds ($274.49 million)in deposit outflows in September, heaping pressure on the lender whose business model rests on attracting savers with its brightly colored city-center branches. The grim earnings report after the market close could put further pressure on Metro Bank's shares on Thursday morning, albeit the 2.2 million pound loss was less than some analysts had feared.
