I had an interesting meeting with LloydsTSB today – I am starting work on an IT project for them and I was asking them about the merger with Halifax and how various combinations of LloydsTSB and HBOS domain names have already been registered.
I was told that none of this mattered because:
1) It’s a takeover not a merger
2) The name of the new, enlarged company will be "LloydsTSB"
We all fell about laughing at the second one. Ho ho ho! Poor old HBOS.
