Share Repurchase Program


On March 14, 2013, Huntington announced that the Federal Reserve did not object to Huntington's proposed capital actions included in Huntington's capital plan submitted to the Federal Reserve in January of this year. These actions included an increase in the quarterly dividend per common share to $0.05, starting in the second quarter of 2013 and potential repurchase of up to $227 million of common stock through the first quarter of 2014. Huntington's board of directors authorized a share repurchase program consistent with Huntington's capital plan. During the three-month period ended March 31, 2013, Huntington repurchased a total of 4.7 million shares of common stock, at a weighted average share price of $7.07. Huntington did not repurchase any shares during the three-month period ended March 31, 2012.
