Item 8.01.      Other Events.

U.S. Bancorp, a Delaware corporation (the “Company”), and USB Capital XII, a statutory trust formed under the laws of the State of Delaware (the “Trust”), closed on February 1, 2007 the public offering of $500,000,000 aggregate principal amount of the Trust’s 6.30% Trust Preferred Securities (the “Capital Securities”), representing preferred beneficial interests in the Trust, pursuant to an Underwriting Agreement dated January 25, 2007, between the Company, the Trust and Merrill Lynch, Pierce, Fenner & Smith Incorporated, Morgan Stanley & Co. Incorporated and UBS Securities LLC, as representatives (the “Representatives”) of the underwriters named in Schedule I thereto (collectively, the “Underwriters”), which incorporates by reference the U.S. Bancorp Underwriting Agreement Standard Provisions (Capital Securities) (December 21, 2005). The Capital Securities are fully, irrevocably and unconditionally guaranteed on a subordinated basis by the Company pursuant to a Guarantee Agreement (the “Guarantee”) between the Company and Wilmington Trust Company, as Guarantee Trustee. The proceeds from the sale of the Capital Securities, together with the proceeds from the sale by the Trust of its common securities, were invested by the Trust in 6.30% Income Capital Obligation Notes (the “ICONs”), due 2067, issued pursuant to a Junior Subordinated Indenture (the “Indenture”) dated April 28, 2005, as supplemented by the First Supplemental Indenture dated August 3, 2005, as supplemented by the Second Supplemental Indenture dated December 29, 2005, as supplemented by the Third Supplemental Indenture dated March 17, 2006, as supplemented by the Fourth Supplemental Indenture dated April 12, 2006, as supplemented by the Fifth Supplemental Indenture dated August 30, 2006 and as supplemented by the Sixth Supplemental Indenture dated February 1, 2007 between the Company and Wilmington Trust Company, as successor trustee to Delaware Trust Company, National Association, as Debenture Trustee. The Capital Securities, the ICONs and the Guarantee have been registered under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, by a registration statement on Form S-3 (File No. 333-124535).

On February 1, 2007, in connection with the closing of the Capital Securities offering, the Company entered into a Replacement Capital Covenant (the “RCC”), whereby the Company agreed for the benefit of certain of its debtholders named therein that it would not redeem or purchase, or cause the Trust to redeem or purchase, the Capital Securities or the ICONs unless such purchases or redemptions are made from the proceeds of the issuance of certain qualified securities and pursuant to the other terms and conditions set forth in the RCC. A copy of the RCC is attached hereto as Exhibit 99.1 and is incorporated herein by reference.
