Discontinued businesses include residual asset portfolios that were 
part of the Grindlays business, but were not purchased by Standard 
Chartered Bank, and the deposits and provisions associated with NHB 
(refer contingent liability note further on). The Group is making a 
controlled exit from the residual asset portfolios. Discontinued 
businesses also includes the joint venture with OCBC to develop a 
web-led bank in Asia, which was terminated in March 2001. The first 
half result included an equity loss of $25 million which was the 
Group's share of the joint venture loss.
