Security has been Called for: Friday, January 29, 2016
Dec. 29, 2015-- Bank of America today announced the redemption of $2.0 billion of trust preferred securities. Beginning in January of 2016, these securities, unlike the corporation’s other outstanding series of trust preferred securities, will completely phase out from regulatory capital. As a result of the Bank of America Merrill Lynch merger in 2009, the company recorded a discount to par value as purchase accounting adjustments associated with these securities. Bank of America will record a non-cash reduction to net interest income and to pretax income of approximately $600 million in the fourth quarter of 2015 for the remaining discount to par value. The company expects to realize cash savings from lower funding costs as a result of the redemption. The redemption affects all of the trust preferred securities of each trust listed in the table below. The redemption date for all such trust preferred securities is January 29, 2016, and the redemption price is 100 percent of the liquidation amount per trust preferred security, plus accumulated and unpaid distributions on the trust preferred securities through the redemption date.
