Key Announces Common Share Repurchase Program And Plans To Evaluate Dividend Increase

CLEVELAND, March 26, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- KeyCorp (NYSE: KEY) announced today that the Federal Reserve did not object to Key's proposed capital plan submitted during the 2014 Comprehensive Capital Analysis and Review.  The capital plan includes:

  • A common share repurchase program of up to $542 million
  • An increase in the quarterly common share dividend from $0.055 per share up to $0.065 per share. Key's Board of Directors will consider the potential dividend increase in May.   

Share repurchases under the capital plan have been authorized by Key's Board of Directors and include repurchases to offset issuances of common shares under Key's employee compensation plans. Key intends to repurchase its common shares through the open market or in privately negotiated transactions. The Company anticipates repurchasing common shares under the capital plan through March 31, 2015. The reacquired shares will be held as treasury shares and may be reissued for various corporate purposes.

Beth E. Mooney, Key's Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, stated, "We are pleased that we received no objection to our capital plan from the Federal Reserve.  Consistent with our capital priorities, it provides us with the ability to increase our dividends and continue the process of returning capital to our shareholders.  After returning 76% of net income to shareholders in 2013, Key remains one of the best capitalized banks in its peer group.  We are well positioned to execute on our relationship strategy, grow our business and remain disciplined in managing capital for our shareholders."
