Bank of America Corporation announced today that it has submitted redemption notices to the property trustee for each trust listed in the table below, which will result in the redemption of all the trust preferred securities of each trust on June 6, 2018. The trust preferred securities will be redeemed at the applicable redemption price calculated as noted in the table below (either as a percentage of the liquidation amount or at a “make-whole” redemption price*), plus accrued and unpaid distributions to, but not including, the redemption date also as noted in the table below. All of the redemptions are being effected under the optional redemption provisions applicable to the trust preferred securities of each trust.
The trust preferred securities are being redeemed, along with the common securities issued by the applicable trust and held by Bank of America or its affiliates, as a result of the concurrent redemption in whole by Bank of America of its junior subordinated notes held by each trust listed in the table below which underlie the respective series of trust preferred securities.
The redemptions are being made pursuant to Bank of America’s capital plan. Bank of America has received all necessary approvals for these redemptions. Upon the redemption of the trust preferred securities and the extinguishment of the related junior subordinated notes issued by Bank of America, expected to occur in the second quarter of 2018, Bank of America will record a charge to other income and pretax income estimated to be approximately $800 million, subject to certain redemption price calculations at that time.
