On 21 May, 2013, the company announced that it intends to use net proceeds from its offering Series U, its Non-Cumulative Perpetual Preferred Stock, in order to fund this redemption.
The Series J Depositary Shares that represent a 1/1000th interest in one share of the Series J Preferred Stock will be redeemed at a redemption price of $25 per depositary share. All the currently outstanding Series J Depositary Shares, 38,052,466 in total, will be redeemed on 1 August, 2013, for a net redemption price of $951,311,650.

This period spans from and including 1 May, 2013 up to but excluding 1 August, 2013.
The depositary shares will be redeemed according to the procedure of the Depository Trust Company. Computershare Trust Company and Computershare, Inc. will collectively pay for Series J Depositary Shares to DTC.
