Basis of Presentation Use of Non‐GAAP Financial Measures This document contains GAAP financial measures and non‐GAAP financial measures where management believes it to be helpful in  understanding Huntington’s results of operations or financial position. Where non‐GAAP financial measures are used, the  comparable GAAP financial measure, as well as the reconciliation to the comparable GAAP financial measure, can be found in this  document, conference call slides, or the Form 8‐K related to this document, all of which can be found in the Investor Relations  section of Huntington’s website, http://www.huntington.com. Annualized Data Certain returns, yields, performance ratios, or quarterly growth rates are presented on an “annualized” basis. This is done for  analytical and decision‐making purposes to better discern underlying performance trends when compared to full‐year or year‐over‐ year amounts. For example, loan and deposit growth rates, as well as net charge‐off percentages, are most often expressed in  terms of an annual rate like 8%. As such, a 2% growth rate for a quarter would represent an annualized 8% growth rate. Fully‐Taxable Equivalent Interest Income and Net Interest Margin Income from tax‐exempt earning assets is increased by an amount equivalent to the taxes that would have been paid if this income had been taxable at statutory rates. This adjustment puts all earning assets, most notably tax‐exempt municipal securities and  certain lease assets, on a common basis that facilitates comparison of results to results of competitors. Earnings per Share Equivalent Data Significant income or expense items may be expressed on a per common share basis. This is done for analytical and decision‐ making purposes to better discern underlying trends in total corporate earnings per share performance excluding the impact of such items. Investors may also find this information helpful in their evaluation of our financial performance against published  earnings per share mean estimate amounts, which typically exclude the impact of Significant Items. Earnings per share equivalents  are usually calculated by applying an effective tax rate to a pre‐tax amount to derive an after‐tax amount, which is divided by the  average shares outstanding during the respective reporting period. Occasionally, when the item involves special tax treatment, the  after‐tax amount is disclosed separately, with this then being the amount used to calculate the earnings per share equivalent. 2020 Barclays Global Financial Services Conference 15


 
Basis of Presentation Rounding Please note that columns of data in this document may not add due to rounding. Significant Items From time to time, revenue, expenses, or taxes are impacted by items judged by management to be outside of ordinary banking  activities and/or by items that, while they may be associated with ordinary banking activities, are so unusually large that their  outsized impact is believed by management at that time to be infrequent or short term in nature. We refer to such items as  “Significant Items”. Most often, these Significant Items result from factors originating outside the company – e.g., regulatory  actions/assessments, windfall gains, changes in accounting principles, one‐time tax assessments/refunds, and litigation actions. In  other cases they may result from management decisions associated with significant corporate actions out of the ordinary course of  business – e.g., merger/restructuring charges, recapitalization actions, and goodwill impairment. Even though certain revenue and expense items are naturally subject to more volatility than others due to changes in market and  economic environment conditions, as a general rule volatility alone does not define a Significant Item. For example, changes in the  provision for credit losses, gains/losses from investment activities, and asset valuation write‐downs reflect ordinary banking  activities and are, therefore, typically excluded from consideration as a Significant Item. Management believes the disclosure of “Significant Items”, when appropriate, aids analysts/investors in better understanding  corporate performance and trends so that they can ascertain which of such items, if any, they may wish to include/exclude from  their analysis of the company’s performance ‐ i.e., within the context of determining how that performance differed from their  expectations, as well as how, if at all, to adjust their estimates of future performance accordingly. To this end, management has  adopted a practice of listing “Significant Items” in our external disclosure documents (e.g., earnings press releases, quarterly performance discussions, investor presentations, Forms 10‐Q and 10‐K). “Significant Items” for any particular period are not intended to be a complete list of items that may materially impact current or  future period performance. A number of items could materially impact these periods, including those which may be described from  time to time in Huntington’s filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission. 2020 Barclays Global Financial Services Conference 16
