The following is a statement from Metro Bank PLC:

"Metro Bank does not control certain internet domain names similar to its own. Metro Bank owns and uses the domain “metrobankonline.co.uk”. Metro Bank purchased the registered trademark “Metrobank” from (a business) that also owns the internet domain “www.metrobank.co.uk” which was not acquired by Metro Bank. When Metro Bank bought the registered trademark, it entered into an agreement that provided Metro Bank would not attempt to use its rights in the registered trademark to gain control of the internet domain. As a result, Metro Bank cannot control who might purchase the domain or the purpose for which it might be used. Metro Bank’s inability to control this domain, or others with similar names to that of its own, could have a material adverse effect on Metro Bank’s reputation, business, financial condition and results of operations".
