PNC Releases Results Of Annual Dodd-Frank Company-Run Stress Test
The supervisory severely adverse scenario provided by the Federal Reserve and OCC for the 2018 annual company-run stress test assumes a severe global recession that is accompanied by both a period of heightened stress in several markets, including domestic equity, corporate loan, and commercial real estate markets, as well as a global aversion to long-term fixed-income assets. Under the hypothetical severely adverse scenario provided by the agencies, PNC estimates that its ending and minimum regulatory capital ratios would be as follows:
Basel III Regulatory Capital Ratios:
Common Equity Tier 1
Tier 1 Risk-Based Capital
Total Risk-Based Capital
Tier 1 Leverage
Ending Q1 2020
These results are the product of a forward-looking regulatory exercise using hypothetical macroeconomic assumptions that are far more adverse than currently expected by the Federal Reserve or PNC, and do not represent a forecast of PNC's future capital levels or anticipated economic conditions.
As required by applicable regulations, capital ratios are calculated (a) for the first quarter of 2018 using the actual capital actions expected to be undertaken in that quarter and (b) for the remaining eight quarters of the stress period, assuming that (i) there are no repurchases or redemptions of regulatory capital instruments; (ii) there are no issuances of common stock or preferred stock (other than equity issuances pursuant to expensed employee compensation programs); (iii) the dollar amount of quarterly common stock dividends is equal to the quarterly average dollar amount of common stock dividends paid during the second, third, and fourth quarters of 2017 and first quarter of 2018 (for PNC, the quarterly average amount of common dividends during this period was
The Basel III ratios were determined using the standardized approach for risk weights included in the Basel III rules.
Results of PNC's annual Dodd-Frank company-run stress test, including PNC's estimates of pre-provision net revenue, other revenue, loan and other losses, net income before taxes, and regulatory capital ratios for PNC, as well as additional information on the methodologies used in conducting the stress test, may be found at www.pnc.com/regulatorydisclosures.
