Note 5 Capital Issuance:
PNC places great emphasis on maintaining a strong capital base and continues to exceed regulatory capital requirements for well capitalized financial institutions. Management is committed to maintaining a capital level sufficient to assure shareholders, customers and regulators that PNC is financially sound.
PNC has received approval from the Treasury to issue preferred securities and warrants to purchase PNC common stock no later than the closing date, subject to the signing of definitive documents and certain closing requirements, as part of the Treasurys TARP Capital Purchase Program. The securities issued to the Treasury consist of preferred securities and common stock warrants, all of which are classified as Tier 1 capital for regulatory purposes. The Treasury would receive warrants to purchase a number of shares of common stock having an aggregate market price equal to 15% of the proceeds on the date of issuance with a strike price equal to the trailing twenty day trading average leading up to October 22, 2008.
The unaudited condensed combined balance sheet data and selected capital ratios are presented as of September 30, 2008 and the unaudited condensed combined income statements are presented for the year ended December 31, 2007 and the nine months ended September 30, 2008, reflecting the receipt of $7.7 billion from the planned sale of preferred securities and the issuance of warrants to purchase 17.2 million shares of PNC common stock assuming a purchase price of $67.33 per share (trailing 20-day PNC average closing stock price as of October 22, 2008). However, there is no guarantee that the estimated proceeds will ultimately be received. The pro forma financial data may change materially based on the actual proceeds received under the TARP Capital Purchase Program, the timing and utilization of the proceeds as well as certain other factors including the strike price of the warrants, any subsequent changes in PNCs common stock price and the discount rate used to determine the fair value of the preferred securities.
Following are the pro forma capital ratios based on the merger and the TARP issuance:
