TCF Financial Corporation (NYSE: TCB) (“TCF”) today announced that it has submitted a redemption notice to the property trustee for full redemption of $115 million of the 10.75% TCF Capital I (NYSE: TCB.A) trust preferred securities. The determination to redeem the trust preferred securities follows a notice of proposed rulemaking, approved for publication in the Federal Register by the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System (the “Federal Reserve”) on June 7, 2012, which would phase-out the Tier 1 capital treatment of the trust preferred securities. TCF has determined that the Federal Reserve’s approval for publication of the notice of proposed rulemaking constituted a “capital treatment event” (as defined in the indenture governing the trust preferred securities), which allows TCF to redeem the trust preferred securities. The trust preferred securities will be redeemed on July 30, 2012 at the redemption price of $25.00 per trust preferred security plus accumulated and unpaid distributions to the redemption date. The redemption will be funded with a portion of TCF’s net proceeds from its public offering of depositary shares, each representing 1/1,000 th interest in a share of Series A Non-Cumulative Perpetual Preferred Stock, which closed on June 25, 2012. The paying agent for redemption is Wilmington Trust Company, Rodney Square North, 1100 North Market Street, Wilmington, DE 19890.
