Capital One Financial Corporation (NYSE: COF) announced today that it has been
designated a 2013 Top 100 Military Friendly Employer® by G.I. Jobs as well as
being named to 2013 Military Friendly Spouse Employers. This marks the first
year the company has been included in the Top 100 Military Friendly Employers®
list, which was compiled from a data-driven survey sample of 5,000 companies
whose annual revenues exceeded $500 million. Criteria for selection to the Top
100 list included the strength of company military recruiting efforts, the
percentage of new hires with prior military service, retention programs, and
company policies on National Guard and Reserve service.

Capital One was recognized for its support of military veterans and National
Guard and Reserve members with its military recruitment program and its
support of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce’s Hiring our Heroes program, as a
leading sponsor. Capital One’s 3-year, $4.5 million commitment to the National
Chamber Foundation and the Hiring our Heroes program, is funding the Hiring
500,000 Heroes campaign and the efforts of the Chamber to support job fairs
and workforce training initiatives across the United States. These initiatives
focus on connecting service members and military spouses with local small
business owners.

“At Capital One, we understand and appreciate the value that military
experience brings to the workplace and we are privileged to have veterans from
every branch of service as colleagues, team members and leaders throughout our
company,” said John G. Finneran, Jr., General Counsel of Capital One. “We are
committed to doing our part. We are proud to support the transition of
servicemen and women to the civilian workforce and help other companies
