M&T Bank Corporation Announces Preliminary Stress Capital Buffer

June 28, 2024 at 4:50 PM EDT

BUFFALO, N.Y., June 28, 2024 /PRNewswire/ -- M&T Bank Corporation ("M&T" or the "Company") (NYSE: MTB) today announced the Federal Reserve Board has determined the Company's preliminary stress capital buffer ("SCB") requirement is 3.8%, down from 4.0% previously. The Federal Reserve Board will provide the Company's final SCB requirement on or before Aug. 31, 2024. Once finalized, the new SCB requirement will be in effect beginning on October 1, 2024.

The Company's regulatory minimum CET1 ratio implied by the preliminary SCB is now 8.3%, down from 8.5%. M&T expects the second quarter 2024 CET1 ratio to be over 11.35%.

"The results of this year's stress test reflect the strength of the company's core earnings power, capital, and ongoing risk management work, including the reduction in the commercial real estate concentration," said Daryl Bible, M&T's Chief Financial Officer. "This strong capital position supports organic growth, as well as growth in new customer relationships and returning capital to shareholders over time."

On May 21, 2024, M&T's board of directors previously announced that it declared a quarterly cash dividend of $1.35 per share on its common stock. This represents an increase of $.05 per share, or 4 percent, from the previous $1.30 per share dividend paid in the first quarter of 2024. The dividend is payable June 28, 2024, to shareholders of record at the close of business on June 3, 2024.
