NATWEST GROUP PLC AND NATWEST MARKETS N.V. - FINANCIAL IMPACT OF SEPARATE CASH TENDER OFFERS FOR CERTAIN OF THEIR RESPECTIVE OUTSTANDING NOTES

NatWest Group plc ("NatWest Group") and NatWest Markets N.V. ("NWM N.V.") (each an "Offeror" and, together, the "Offerors") announced on 9 August 2022 the results of their separate cash tender offers (with respect to the tender offers launched by NatWest Group, the "NatWest Group Offer", and with respect to the tender offers launched by NWM N.V., the "NWM N.V. Offer", each an "Offer") in respect of any and all of certain series of their respective U.S. dollar denominated notes pursuant to separate offers to purchase dated August 1, 2022 (each an "Offer to Purchase").

NatWest Group estimates the aggregate impact of the NatWest Group Offer and the NWM N.V. Offer will be a charge to income in its Q3 2022 results of approximately GBP56 million, with the final charge dependent on the foreign exchange rate on August 10, 2022. After taking into account the estimated effect of taxation, and based on risk weighted assets of GBP179.8 billion as reported for June 30, 2022, this would equate to a reduction in NatWest Group's CET1 capital ratio of approximately 3bps.

NWM N.V. estimates the impact of the NWM N.V. Offer will be a charge to income in its Q3 2022 results of approximately EUR83 million. After taking into account the estimated effect of taxation, and the effect of the unwinding of a related hedging transaction with NatWest Group, NWM N.V. does not expect a material impact on its CET1 capital ratio.
