BB&T Announces Federal Reserve's Response To Its CCAR Capital Plan

WINSTON-SALEM, N.C., March 26, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- BB&T Corporation (NYSE: BBT) today announced that the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System (Fed) accepted its capital plan and did not object to its proposed capital actions, which include a recommendation for a conservative increase in the quarterly common stock dividend to begin in the second quarter of 2014. The capital plan also includes a recommendation to distribute capital in the form of dividends payable to current preferred stockholders.

"BB&T is very pleased to move forward with our capital plan to increase our common dividend and continue to distribute preferred dividends," said Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Kelly King. "BB&T remains committed to rewarding our shareholders with a strong long-term return on their investment."

BB&T's board of directors is expected to consider the company's quarterly common stock dividend and distribution of capital to preferred shareholders at its next scheduled meeting on April 29, 2014.
