Jan 19 (Reuters) - Britain's FTSE 100 index is expected to open 11
points higher on Thursday, according to financial bookmakers.

biggest one-day drop since June 2016 in the previous session on Brexit jitters.
It ended 3.8 percent up at 7247.61 points on Wednesday. 
    * BHP: BHP Ltd,, its partner Vale SA and Samarco
have reached an agreement with Brazil authorities to settle a $47.5 billion
civil claim over the Samarco iron ore mine disaster, the companies said on
    * RYANAIR: Ryanair's could scrap its small number of routes within
Britain once the country leaves the European Union, rather than take steps to
comply with new regulations, its chief financial officer said on Wednesday, a
company spokesman said. 
    * CLYDESDALE BANK: Clydesdale Bank Plc is planning to close about
a third of its bank branches and fire more than 400 employees to reduce costs,
the Unite union said on Wednesday. 
    * LLOYDS: Lloyds Banking Group is considering setting up a
subsidiary in Frankfurt as Britain prepares to leave the European Union,
according to a person familiar with the plans. 
    * SHELL: Royal Dutch Shell has been shortlisted by the U.S.
government to make a bid for an offshore wind project licence in the waters off
North Carolina, as it comes under pressure from shareholders to diversify into
green energy. 
    * UBS: UBS Chairman Axel Weber has said that around 1,000 of the
Swiss bank's 5,000 employees based in London could be impacted by Britain's exit
from the European Union. 
    * BRITAIN HOUSE PRICES: Britain's housing market had its weakest month since
just after June's Brexit vote in December as house price growth slowed and the
number of homes sold fell slightly, a closely watched survey of property valuers
showed on Wednesday. 
    * EX-DIVS: Ashtead Group, Compass Group and SSE 
will go ex-dividend on Thursday, after which investors will no longer qualify
for the latest dividend payout. According to Reuters calculations at current
market prices, the effect of the resulting adjustment to prices by market-makers
would take 2.56 points off the FTSE 100 index.
