Bank Of America Announces Expiration And Results Of Cash Tender Offers For 2014 Senior Notes

Bank of America Corporation and its wholly-owned subsidiaries, Merrill Lynch & Co., Inc. and BAC Canada Finance Company (together, the “Offerors”), today announced the expiration of their offers to purchase (the “Maximum Offer”) for up to $2.863 billion cash (the “Maximum Payment Amount”) 11 series of their respective senior notes that have maturities in 2014 and are listed in the table below (the “Maximum Offer Notes”).

As of the “Expiration Date” for the Maximum Offer, which was 11:59 p.m., New York City time, on August 14, 2013, a total of approximately $6.2 billion (or its equivalent in the currencies in which certain of the Notes are denominated) in aggregate principal amount of the Notes had been validly tendered and not withdrawn. The aggregate purchase price for such tendered Notes is $6.3 billion. Since the aggregate purchase price payable for validly tendered Maximum Offer Notes exceeds the Maximum Payment Amount, tenders of Maximum Offer Notes will be accepted for purchase based on the acceptance priority levels (the “Acceptance Priority Level”) specified in the table below. Accordingly, 100% of series with Acceptance Priority Levels 1 through 6 and 4.5% of series with Acceptance Priority Level 7 will be accepted for purchase and none of the series with Acceptance Priority Levels 8 through 11 will be accepted for purchase. All tendered Maximum Offer Notes not accepted for purchase will be returned promptly.

The following table lists the series of Notes that were subject to the Maximum Offer, the aggregate principal amount of each series of Notes validly tendered and the aggregate principal amount of such series to be accepted for purchase:
