Royal Bank of Scotland (RBS) made a £469 million loss in the third quarter and confirmed that it will miss a 2017 deadline to sell off its Williams & Glyn branch network.
The figure compares with a profit of £940 million in the same period last year, when the bank's balance sheet was boosted by the sale of US bank Citizens.
The lender, which is still 73% owned by the government, said that despite "positive discussions" with interested parties on the sale of Williams & Glyn, it will miss its 2017 deadline.
RBS must offload the Williams & Glyn branches by the end of next year as part of EU conditions linked to its £45 billion bailout at the height of the financial crisis.
The bank was also hit by £425 million in conduct and litigation charges, largely linked to the sale of mortgage-backed securities in the US and £469 million in restructuring costs.
