DALLAS, March 26, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --Comerica Incorporated (NYSE: CMA) today
announced that after the Federal Reserve had completed its 2014 Comprehensive
Capital Analysis and Review ("CCAR"), it did not object to the Comerica
capital plan and capital distributions contemplated in the plan. Comerica's
capital plan provides for up to $236 million in share repurchases for the
four-quarter period commencing in the second quarter 2014 and ending in the
first quarter 2015. The reacquired shares will be held as treasury shares and
may be used for various corporate purposes, including to offset issuances of
common shares under Comerica's compensation plans. In addition, Comerica's
capital plan includes the authority to redeem $150 million of subordinated
notes due 2024 when callable at par later this year.

On January 21, 2014, and as part of its 2013 capital plan, Comerica announced
that its Board of Directors increased the quarterly cash dividend for common
stock 12 percent to 19 cents ($0.19) per share, payable April 1, 2014, to
common stock shareholders of record on March 14, 2014. The 2014 capital plan,
which was approved by Comerica's Board of Directors, further contemplates a 1
cent increase in Comerica's quarterly dividend to $0.20 per common share, a 5
percent increase over the current dividend rate. The dividend proposal will be
considered by the Board at its next scheduled meeting on April 22, 2014. Going
forward, it is expected that dividend actions contemplated by the Board will
be aligned with the annual Federal Reserve CCAR process.

"We are pleased the Federal Reserve has completed its review and that we are
moving forward with our 2014 capital plan," said Ralph W. Babb Jr., chairman
and chief executive officer. "Our ability to execute our plan reaffirms our
company's consistent, conservative approach to relationship banking that has
been proven throughout the economic cycle. We remain focused on providing a
good return to shareholders while maintaining our strong capital ratios."
