U.S. Bancorp Discloses Summary Results Of Dodd-Frank Act Stress Test

Stocks in this article: USB

Today U.S. Bancorp disclosed a summary of its Dodd-Frank Act Stress Test (“DFA”) results. The disclosure includes U.S. Bancorp’s projected stressed minimum capital ratios for the period from the fourth quarter of 2012 through the fourth quarter of 2014, assuming annual common stock dividends equal to the average dollar amount paid in the previous year and no stock redemption or repurchase activity, in addition to estimates of losses, revenues, net income before taxes, and loan losses by type of loan over the same time period. All projections were made under the Supervisory Severely Adverse Scenario set by the Federal Reserve, a two-year hypothetical stressed economic scenario designed to assess the overall strength and resilience of the banking industry, which is much more severe than actually expected by the Company.

A summary of the Company’s DFA results is included in the table below. The Company’s DFA results may differ from those calculated and published by the Federal Reserve due to differences in models, methodologies and tax rate, among other things. A document summarizing the risks and methodologies used to calculate the results, as well as an analysis of the significant reasons for the changes in capital ratios under the hypothetical stressed economic scenario is available on our website at

These estimates are not forecasts of expected losses, revenues, net income before taxes, or capital ratios. The minimum capital ratio presented is for the period Q4 2012 to Q4 2014.
