Bank of America Corporation announced today that it will redeem all outstanding shares of its 6.000% Non-Cumulative Preferred Stock, Series EE (the “Series EE Preferred Stock”), and the corresponding depositary shares representing fractional interests in the outstanding shares of the Series EE Preferred Stock (the “Series EE Depositary Shares”), on April 25, 2021.
All 36,000,000 Series EE Depositary Shares (NYSE: BAC PrA) (CUSIP No. 060505260), each representing a 1/1,000th interest in one share of the Series EE Preferred Stock, will be redeemed on the upcoming dividend payment date for the Series EE Preferred Stock on April 25, 2021 (the “Redemption Date”), simultaneously with the redemption of the Series EE Preferred Stock, at a redemption price of $25 per depositary share. However, since the Redemption Date is not a business day, the redemption price will be paid on the next succeeding business day, April 26, 2021. Declared dividends of $0.375 per depositary share on the outstanding Series EE Depositary Shares for the full current quarterly dividend period from, and including, January 25, 2021 to, but excluding, April 25, 2021 will be paid separately on April 26, 2021, to holders of record on April 1, 2021, in the customary manner. Accordingly, the redemption price of $25 per depositary share does not include any accrued and unpaid dividends, and dividends on the redeemed depositary shares will cease to accrue on the Redemption Date.
The Series EE Depositary Shares are held through The Depository Trust Company (DTC) and will be redeemed in accordance with the procedures of DTC. Payment to DTC for the Series EE Depositary Shares will be made by Computershare Inc. and Computershare Trust Company, N.A., collectively, as redemption agent, in accordance with the Deposit Agreement governing the Series EE Depositary Shares. The address for the redemption agent is as follows:
