COLUMBUS, Ohio -- November 3, 2020 -- Huntington Bancshares Incorporated (Nasdaq: HBAN) (the “Company”) today announced the early results and upsizing of the previously announced tender offers (the “Tender Offer”) to purchase the applicable aggregate maximum principal amount (each the “Tender Cap”) of its outstanding notes listed in the table below (the “Notes”). The Company has amended the terms of the Tender Offer to increase the Tender Cap applicable to the 2.300% Senior Notes due 2022 from $200 million to $300 million.

As of 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on November 2, 2020 (the “Early Tender Deadline”), approximately $1.1 billion aggregate principal amount of Notes were validly tendered and not validly withdrawn. The table below identifies the principal amount of each series of Notes validly tendered and not validly withdrawn and the principal amount the Company has accepted for purchase:

(1)   As of the Early Tender Deadline.
(2)   The final proration factor has been rounded to the nearest tenth of a percentage point for presentation purposes.

The amount of each series of Notes accepted for purchase was determined pursuant to the terms and conditions of the Tender Offer as set forth in the Offer to Purchase dated October 20, 2020 (the “Offer to Purchase”). 

Notes not accepted for purchase will be promptly credited to the account of the registered holder of such Notes with The Depository Trust Company and otherwise returned in accordance with the Offer to Purchase.

Holders of Notes validly tendered and not validly withdrawn on or before the Early Tender Deadline and accepted for purchase will be eligible to receive the applicable Total Tender Offer Consideration (as defined in the Offer to Purchase), which includes an early tender premium of $30.00 per $1,000 principal amount of Notes. The applicable Total Tender Offer Consideration will be determined by reference to a fixed spread specified for such series of Notes over the yield based on the bid-side price of the applicable U.S. Treasury Security, as described in the Offer to Purchase. The Total Tender Offer Consideration will be calculated by the Dealer Manager (identified below) for the Tender Offer at 10:30 a.m., New York City time, today, November 3, 2020. All payments for Notes purchased in connection with the Early Tender Deadline will also include accrued and unpaid interest on the principal amount of Notes tendered and accepted for purchase from the last interest payment date applicable to the relevant series of Notes up to, but excluding, the early settlement date, which is currently expected to be November 4, 2020. In accordance with the terms of the Tender Offer, the withdrawal deadline was 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on November 2, 2020. As a result, tendered Notes may no longer be withdrawn, except in certain limited circumstances where additional withdrawal rights are required by law (as determined by the Company).

Although the Tender Offer is scheduled to expire at 11:59 p.m., New York City time, on November 16, 2020, because holders of Notes subject to the Tender Offer validly tendered and did not validly withdraw Notes on or before the Early Tender Deadline in an amount that exceeds the Tender Cap for each series of Notes, the Company does not expect to accept for purchase any tenders of Notes after the Early Tender Deadline.
