M&T Bank Corporation Comments on Federal Reserve 2020 DFAST Results

BUFFALO, N.Y. — M&T Bank Corporation (“M&T”) (NYSE: MTB) offered comments today on the 2020 Dodd-Frank Act Stress Test (“DFAST”) disclosed by the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System (“Federal Reserve”).

Based on the results of the Federal Reserve’s stress test, M&T’s preliminary stress capital buffer (“SCB”) has been set at the 2.5 percent minimum, indicating that it will be subject to a 7.0 percent Common Equity Tier 1 ratio threshold under the SCB regulation which becomes effective October 1, 2020.  M&T’s Common Equity Tier 1 ratio of 9.19 percent at March 31, 2020 exceeded the threshold below which capital distributions could be limited by that regulation.

M&T’s current $1.10 quarterly common stock dividend falls within the guidelines for the third quarter announced by the Federal Reserve.  The dividend remains subject to declaration by M&T’s Board of Directors in the ordinary course of business.  Also, in accord with the Federal Reserve’s guidelines, M&T will not be repurchasing any shares of common stock during the third quarter.

M&T’s Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer, Darren King, noted, “M&T’s prudent approach to managing shareholders’ capital has enabled us to meet the credit needs of our customers and communities, while ensuring our safety and soundness during times of economic stress, such as the current pandemic.”

PSB Holdings, Inc. Announces Semi-Annual Cash Dividend of $0.21 per Share

WAUSAU, Wis. — PSB Holdings, Inc. (OTCQX: PSBQ), parent company of Peoples State Bank, is pleased to announce that on June 16, 2020, its Board of Directors declared a regular semi-annual cash dividend of $0.21 per share of PSB common stock.  The dividend is payable July 31, 2020 to shareholders of record as of July 10, 2020 and represents an increase of 5.0% over the $0.20 per share semi-annual cash dividend declared on June 18, 2019.  The current dividend continues a 56-year tradition of cash dividends to PSB shareholders, including 27 consecutive years of increased cash dividends declared per share.

PSB’s Board of Directors will also continue the suspension of its common stock repurchase program until further notice.  The timing and extent of future repurchases will be dependent upon market conditions and other corporate considerations.  Year-to-date through May 31, 2020, 18,434 shares of common stock have been repurchased under the program at an average cost of $25.95 per share.

PSB President and CEO Scott M. Cattanach said, “Given our current capital strength, based on our capital stress testing results and liquidity position in the year ahead, we are continuing and modestly increasing our normal semi-annual shareholder dividend while monitoring changing economic conditions.  Increased revenue from high volume in our residential mortgage banking division and loan origination income associated with the SBA Payroll Protection Program has allowed us to build loan loss reserves believed to be needed to offset potential future credit losses driven by the COVID-19 economic downturn.  We will continue to monitor our capital needs and earnings strength to re-evaluate our dividend policy later in 2020 as the current economic environment evolves.”
