Finance round-up: HBOS is snubbed

Car buyer lender HBOS (Halifax and Bank of Scotland) has been snubbed by its shareholders – only 8.29% opted to take extra shares in a rights issue.

The unsold shares will be bought by issue shareholders Morgan Stanley and Dresdner, so HBOS still gets the £4 billion it wanted.
