Item 8.01 Other Events

On May 26, 2010, the United States Department of the Treasury (“Treasury”) sold, in a secondary public offering, 110,261,688 warrants (the “Warrant Offering”), each representing the right to purchase one share of the common stock, par value $1-2/3 per share, of Wells Fargo & Company (the “Company”) at an exercise price of $34.01 per share (the “Warrants”). Both the exercise price and the number of shares that will be acquired upon the exercise of the Warrants are subject to adjustment from time to time. In connection with Warrant Offering, the Company entered into an underwriting agreement dated May 20, 2010 (the “Underwriting Agreement”) among the Company, Treasury and Deutsche Bank Securities Inc. as the representative (the “Representative”) of the underwriters. The public offering price and the allocation of the Warrants in the Warrant Offering were determined by an auction process. The public offering price of the Warrants was equal to the auction clearing price of $7.70 per Warrant. The Company did not receive any of the proceeds of the Warrant Offering. The Warrant Offering was made pursuant to the Company’s automatic shelf registration statement on Form S-3 (Registration No. 333-159736).

In connection with the Warrant Offering, the Company and certain of its officers and directors have agreed to enter into 45-day “lock-up” agreements in substantially the form included in the Underwriting Agreement and subject to customary exceptions. Additionally, the Company entered into a warrant agreement dated May 20, 2010 (the “Warrant Agreement”) between the Company and Wells Fargo Bank, N.A., as warrant agent.

The foregoing description of the Underwriting Agreement, Warrant Agreement and the Warrants does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of these documents and securities, forms or copies of which are incorporated by reference into or are attached as exhibits to this Current Report on Form 8-K.
