Zions Bancorporation Announces Plans to Auction $100 Million to $195 Million of Non-Cumulative Perpetual Preferred Stock Through Zions Direct

18:28 EDT Tuesday, August 06, 2013

SALT LAKE CITY, Aug. 6, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Zions Bancorporation (NASDAQ: Zion) today announced its plans to offer $100,000,000 to $195,152,000 aggregate liquidation preference of Series J fixed/floating rate non-cumulative perpetual preferred stock pursuant to a prospectus supplement dated August 5, 2013 to its prospectus dated April 4, 2011.  The public offering price of each share will be equal to the liquidation preference per share, or $1,000.00.  During the auction period, potential bidders will be able to place bids for the dividend rate for the preferred shares at or above a minimum dividend rate of 6.65% per preferred share (in increments of 0.05%) and up to and including the maximum dividend rate of 7.25% per preferred share.  Zions initially announced this offering on August 5, 2013.

The dividend rate, allocation and amount of shares to be sold in this offering will be determined by an online auction process facilitated by Zions Direct, Inc. ("Zions Direct"), as auction service provider.  Deutsche Bank Securities Inc., Goldman, Sachs & Co., Macquarie Capital (USA) Inc. and Zions Direct are serving as joint bookrunning managers for the offering.

The auction is expected to open on Wednesday, August 7, 2013 at 9:00 am Eastern Time and close on Thursday, August 8, 2013 at 3:00 pm Eastern Time; however, the auction could end earlier if bids for the maximum auction amount are received at the minimum dividend rate, which has occurred in other recent auctions conducted by Zions.

Zions intends to use the net cash proceeds from this offering to pay in part the redemption price in respect of the redemption by Zions of $590,000,000 of its Series C 9.50% non-cumulative perpetual preferred stock announced on July 24, 2013.

Zions updates the section entitled "Capitalization" included in the prospectus supplement dated August 5, 2013 with the information attached in Appendix A to reflect such presentation as of June 30, 2013.
