The aggregate gross proceeds to Treasury from the auctions are expected to be approximately $432.8 million. “Today's results further support our wind down of TARP and community banks in their efforts to replace temporary government support with private capital,” said Assistant Secretary for Financial Stability Timothy G. Massad. “These auctions continue to have high demand and remain an important part of our overall strategy.” 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 $270 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. The vast majority of the $270 billion in funds recovered to date are from repayments at par, as well as dividends, interest, and sales of warrants. Proceeds from CPP preferred stock auctions comprise less than one percent (approximately $3 billion) of that overall total ($270 billion). These auctions are part of the strategy that Treasury outlined in May 2012 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 March 27 and March 28, 2013, subject to customary closing conditions. The offerings were priced through modified Dutch auctions. The CPP Securities sold in the auction have not been and will not be registered under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the Act), and may not be offered or sold in the United States or to, or for the benefit of, U.S. persons absent registration under, or an applicable exemption from, the registration requirements of the Act and applicable state securities law. The CPP Securities were offered only to (1) domestic “qualified institutional buyers” as defined in Rule 144A under 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 respective issuers of the CPP Securities. This press release does not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy the CPP Securities, and shall not constitute an offer, solicitation or sale in any jurisdiction in which, or to any persons to whom, such offering, solicitation or sale would be unlawful.
