Preferred A Stock conversion
On February 21, 2018, Huntington elected to effect the conversion of all of its outstanding 8.50% Series A Non-Cumulative Perpetual Convertible Preferred Stock into common stock pursuant to the terms of the Series A Preferred Stock. On February 21, 2018, the closing sale price of the Common Stock was $15.73, which marked the 20th trading day in the previous 30 consecutive trading days that the Common Stock closed above $15.54 (which is equal to 130% of the conversion price for the Series A Preferred Stock of $11.95 currently in effect), triggering the right of Huntington Bancshares to elect to mandatorily convert all shares of Series A Preferred Stock into shares of Common Stock in accordance with the terms of the Series A Preferred Stock. On February 22, 2018, each share of Series A Preferred Stock was converted into 83.668 shares of Common Stock. Upon conversion, the Series A Preferred Stock is no longer outstanding and all rights with respect to the Series A Preferred Stock were ceased and terminated, except the right to receive the number of whole shares and any required cash-in-lieu of fractional shares of Common Stock. Following the conversion, the Series A Preferred Stock shares were delisted from trading on NASDAQ.
Preferred E Stock issued and outstanding
During the 2018 first quarter, Huntington issued $500 million of preferred stock. Huntington issued 500,000 depositary shares, each depositary shares representing a 1/100th ownership interest in a share of 5.700% Series E Fixed-to-Floating Non-Cumulative Perpetual Preferred Stock (Preferred E Stock), par value $0.01 per share, with a liquidation preference of $100,000 per share (equivalent to $1,000 per depositary share). Each holder of a depositary share will be entitled to all proportional rights and preferences of the Preferred E Stock (including dividend, voting, redemption, and liquidation rights). Costs of $5 million related to the issuance of the Preferred E Stock are reported as a direct deduction from the face amount of the stock.
Dividends on the Preferred E Stock will be non-cumulative and payable quarterly in arrears, when, as and if authorized by the Company's board of directors or a duly authorized committee of the board and declared by the Company, at an annual rate of 5.700% per year on the liquidation preference of $100,000 per share, equivalent to $1,000 per depositary share. The dividend payment dates will be the fifteenth day of each January, April, July and October, commencing on July 15, 2018, or the next business day if any such day is not a business day.
The Preferred E Stock is perpetual and has no maturity date. Huntington may redeem the Preferred E Stock at its option, (i) in whole or in part, from time to time, on any dividend payment date on or after April 15, 2023 or (ii) in whole but not in part, within 90 days following a change in laws or regulations, in each case, at a redemption price equal to $100,000 per share (equivalent to $1,000 per depositary share), plus any declared and unpaid dividends, without regard to any undeclared dividends, on the Series E Preferred Stock prior to the date fixed for redemption. If Huntington redeems the Preferred E Stock, the depositary will redeem a proportional number of depositary shares. Neither the holders of Preferred E Stock nor holders of depositary shares will have the right to require the redemption or repurchase of the Preferred E Stock or the depositary shares. Any redemption of the Preferred E Stock is subject to Huntington's receipt of any required prior approval by the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System.
