ITEM 8.01. OTHER EVENTS.

On November 14, 2011, Bank of America Corporation (the “Registrant”) announced that it has agreed to sell approximately 10.4 billion common shares of China Construction Bank Corporation (CCB) through private transactions with a group of investors (the “Sales”). The Sales are expected to generate approximately $6.6 billion in cash proceeds, a pre-tax gain on sale of approximately $2.9 billion, and an after-tax gain of approximately $1.8 billion. Following completion of the Sales, the Registrant will hold approximately 1 percent of the outstanding common shares of CCB. The Sales are expected to close in November 2011, and are subject to customary closing conditions.

On November 14, 2011, the Registrant issued a press release announcing the Sales. A copy of the press release is attached hereto as Exhibit 99.1 and is incorporated by reference herein.

Forward-Looking Statements

Certain statements in this Report represent the current expectations, plans or forecasts of Bank of America and are forward-looking statements within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. Forward-looking statements can be identified by the fact that they do not relate strictly to historical or current facts. These statements often use words like “expects,” “anticipates,” “believes,” “estimates,” “targets,” “intends,” “plans,” “predict,” “goal” and other similar expressions or future or conditional verbs such as “will,” “may,” “might,” “should,” “would” and “could.” The forward-looking statements made in this press release include, without limitation, statements concerning: completion of the Sales of the CCB shares, including generation of approximately $6.6 billion in cash proceeds, the resulting pre-tax gain on sale of approximately $2.9 billion, the resulting after-tax gain of approximately $1.8 billion, the resulting increase in Tier 1 common capital by approximately $2.9 billion under Basel I, and the resulting increase in Tier 1 common capital ratio by approximately 24 basis points under Basel I. Forward-looking statements speak only as of the date they are made, and Bank of America undertakes no obligation to update any forward-looking statement to reflect the impact of circumstances or events that arise after the date the forward-looking statement was made.

These statements are not guarantees of future results or performance and involve certain risks, uncertainties and assumptions that are difficult to predict and are often beyond Bank of America’s control. Actual outcomes and results may differ materially from those expressed in, or implied by, any of these forward-looking statements. You should not place undue reliance on any forward-looking statement and should consider all of the following uncertainties and risks, as well as those more fully discussed under Item 1A. “Risk Factors” of Bank of America’s Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarterly period ended June 30, 2011, Item 1A. “Risk Factors” of Bank of America’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2010 and in any of Bank of America’s other subsequent Securities and Exchange Commission filings: the satisfaction of the closing conditions for the sale of the CCB shares.
