Barclays above all hurdle rates in 2022/23 Bank of England stress test
 
Barclays PLC ("Barclays") notes the publication today of stress test outcomes for UK banks by the Bank of England ("BoE"). Under the BoE's assessment, Barclays continues to be sufficiently capitalised by remaining above the respective hurdle rates for the duration of the stress scenario. This is under both the common equity tier 1 ratio and the tier 1 leverage ratio measures of capital, and in terms of both transitional and non-transitional bases for IFRS 9. This was also the case in the inaugural stress test of Barclays Bank UK PLC, the ring-fenced bank.
 
The test demonstrates Barclays' continued robust and resilient balance sheet position, and the capital target and plans remain as before.
 
Barclays' group results from the BoE stress test are set out in the table below.

(a) The low points for the common equity Tier 1 (CET1) ratio and leverage ratio shown in the table do not necessarily occur in the same year of the stress scenario and correspond to the year where the minimum stressed ratio is calculated after strategic management actions. There is no conversion of banks' AT1 instruments in the stress.
(b) The CET1 capital ratio is defined as CET1 capital expressed as a percentage of the total risk exposure amount (risk-weighted assets or RWAs), where CET1 capital and RWAs are determined in accordance with the CRR.
(c) The Tier 1 capital ratio is defined as Tier 1 capital expressed as a percentage of RWAs, where Tier 1 capital is defined as the sum of CET1 capital and additional Tier 1 capital determined in accordance with the CRR.
(d) The Total capital ratio is defined as total capital expressed as a percentage of RWAs, where total capital is defined as the sum of Tier 1 capital and Tier 2 capital determined in accordance with the CRR.
(e) The Tier 1 leverage ratio is Tier 1 capital expressed as a percentage of the leverage exposure measure, as defined in Article 429(2) of the Leverage Ratio (CRR) part of the PRA Rulebook. If a firm does not have sufficient CET1 capital to meet 75% of the leverage ratio minimum requirement and 100% of its leverage ratio buffers (as required by PRA rules), additional Tier 1 capital has been capped at 25% of the leverage ratio minimum requirement for the purpose of calculating the Tier 1 leverage ratio.
(f) The low point year for the non-transitional IFRS 9 may differ to the low point year on a transitional IFRS 9 basis.
(g) Corresponds to the same year as the minimum CET1 ratio over the stress scenario after strategic management actions.
(h) Corresponds to the same year as the minimum leverage ratio over the stress scenario after strategic management actions.

Forward-looking statements sometimes use words such as 'may', 'will', 'seek', 'continue', 'aim', 'anticipate', 'target', 'projected', 'expect', 'estimate', 'intend', 'plan', 'goal', 'believe', 'achieve' or other words of similar meaning. These statements are based on the current beliefs and expectations of Barclays' management and are subject to significant risks and uncertainties. Actual outcomes may differ materially from those expressed in the forward-looking statements. Factors that could impact Barclays' future financial condition and performance are identified in Barclays' filings with the SEC (including, without limitation, Barclays' Annual Report on Form 20-F for the financial year ended 31 December 2022), which are available on the SEC's website at www.sec.gov.

Barclays PLC
Commencement of Buy-back
 
Barclays PLC (the "Company") announces that, as outlined in its announcement on 27 July 2023, it will commence a share buy-back programme to purchase ordinary shares of 25 pence each in the Company ("Ordinary Shares") for up to a maximum consideration of £750m (the "Buy-back"). The Buy-back will commence on 28 July 2023 and end no later than 27 January 2024 (subject to regulatory approval remaining in place). The purpose of the Buy-back is to reduce the share capital of the Company and therefore Ordinary Shares purchased under the Buy-back will be cancelled.
 
The Company has entered into a non-discretionary agreement with Citigroup Global Markets Limited ("Citi") to conduct the Buy-back on its behalf and carry out on-market purchases of Ordinary Shares, acting as riskless principal, and to on-sell such Ordinary Shares to the Company.
 
Citi will make trading decisions in relation to the Buy-back independently of, and without further instruction from, the Company.  Any purchases of Ordinary Shares under the Buy-back will be carried out on the London Stock Exchange in accordance with certain pre-set parameters set out in the agreement with Citi and in accordance with (and subject to the limits prescribed by) the Company's general authority to repurchase Ordinary Shares granted by its shareholders at the annual general meeting on 3 May 2023 (the "2023 Authority"), Chapter 12 of the Financial Conduct Authority's Listing Rules, Article 5(1) of the Market Abuse Regulation (EU) No 596/2014 (as it forms part of domestic law by virtue of the European Union (Withdrawal) Act 2018, as amended), the Commission Delegated Regulation (EU) No 2016/1052 (as it forms part of domestic law by virtue of the European Union (Withdrawal) Act 2018, as amended), and other applicable laws.
 
No repurchases will be made in the United States or in respect of the Company's American Depositary Receipts.
 
The maximum number of Ordinary Shares that may be repurchased under the Buy-back is 1,587,136,913 being the number of Ordinary Shares the Company is authorised to repurchase under the 2023 Authority.
