Shareholders' Equity [Abstract]  



Share Repurchase Program


On March 26, 2014, 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 2014. These actions included a potential repurchase of up to $250 million of common stock through the first quarter of 2015. The new repurchase authorization represents a $23 million, or 10%, increase from the recently completed common stock repurchase authorization. Purchases of common stock may include open market purchases, privately negotiated transactions, and accelerated repurchase programs. Huntington's board of directors authorized a share repurchase program consistent with Huntington's capital plan.


During the three-month periods ended March 31, 2014, and 2013 Huntington repurchased a total of 14.6 and 4.7 million shares of common stock, at a weighted average share price of $9.32 and $7.07, respectively.


Other Share Activity


On March 1, 2014, Huntington issued approximately 8.7 million shares pursuant to the acquisition of Camco Financial.


During the three-month period ended March 31, 2014, Huntington sold approximately 0.3 million shares to the HIP, due to the blackout period associated with the Camco Financial acquisition.
