The aggregate gross proceeds to Treasury from the auctions are expected to be approximately $62.0 million. "TARP's bank programs helped stabilize our nation's economy during an historic financial crisis and earned a profit for taxpayers," said Assistant Secretary for Financial Stability Timothy G. Massad. "Helping community banks replace temporary government support with private capital through these auctions is an important part of our overall strategy for winding down this initiative." TARP's bank programs have already earned a significant profit for taxpayers. Including the expected proceeds from the transactions announced today, Treasury has now recovered $267 billion from TARP's bank programs through repayments, dividends, interest, and other income - compared to the $245 billion initially invested. Each additional dollar recovered from TARP's bank programs is an additional dollar of profit for taxpayers. These auctions are part of the strategy that Treasury outlined in May for winding down its remaining TARP bank investments in a way that protects taxpayer interests and preserves the strength of our nation's community banks. Treasury indicated that it intends to use a combination of repayments, restructurings, and sales to manage and recover those remaining investments. The closings for the auctions are expected to occur on or about December 11, 2012, subject to customary closing conditions. The offerings were priced through modified Dutch auctions. The CPP Securities were offered only to (1) domestic "qualified institutional buyers" as defined in Rule 144A under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the "Act"), (2) certain domestic institutional "accredited investors" as defined in Rule 501(a) under the Act that have total assets of not less than $25,000,000 and (3) in certain cases, certain directors and executive officers of the issuers of the CPP Securities. The CPP Securities sold in the auctions may not be offered or sold absent registration under, or an applicable exemption from, applicable securities law. This news release shall not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy, nor shall there be any sale of these securities in any state or jurisdiction in which such offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful prior to registration or qualification under the securities laws of any such state or jurisdiction.
