Wells Fargo & Company Releases Results Of Its Mid-Cycle Stress Test Under The Dodd-Frank Act

Wells Fargo & Company (NYSE:WFC) today released the results of its company-run mid-cycle stress test conducted in accordance with the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act. The results can be found at www.wellsfargo.com/invest_relations/stress-test-reports. The Dodd-Frank Act requires large bank holding companies to perform a mid-year stress test that is separate from the annual Comprehensive Capital Analysis and Review (CCAR) process, and does not include a response from the Federal Reserve.

Wells Fargo’s mid-cycle stress test results are based on a hypothetical severely adverse economic scenario developed by the Company, which contains different economic assumptions than those used in the CCAR process. This scenario assumes an intense recession in the United States due to extreme fiscal tightening domestically and a deep global recession, and does not represent the Company’s forecast. The stress test results should not be interpreted as expected or likely outcomes for the Company, but rather as possible results under hypothetical, severely adverse economic conditions. The disclosure includes Wells Fargo’s minimum projected capital ratios under the scenario for the period from second quarter 2013 through second quarter 2015 calculated using prescribed assumptions about capital distributions.

As reflected in the results, under this severely adverse economic scenario, the Company’s pro forma Tier 1 common equity ratio, calculated under Basel I, is projected to decline from 10.4% at March 31, 2013 to 10.3% at June 30, 2015, the end of the test horizon. All four projected capital ratios remain well above regulatory minimums throughout the nine quarter test horizon.
