The common stock average price represents the simple arithmetic average of the daily per share volume-weighted average price of Bank of America common stock for each of the five consecutive trading days ending on and including June 22, 2009 (the second business day prior to the scheduled expiration date of the exchange offer). The number of shares of common stock issuable for each exchanged depositary share is listed below and was determined by dividing the applicable consideration per depositary share by $12.7048, the common stock average price, and rounded to four decimal places.

The exchange offer will expire at midnight, New York City time, on June 24, 2009, unless extended or earlier terminated by Bank of America. Holders of the depositary shares eligible for exchange will be able to tender their depositary shares, or withdraw their previously tendered depositary shares, at any time prior to the expiration of the exchange offer.
The exchange offer would increase Bank of America's Tier 1 common capital by an amount equal to the aggregate liquidation preference of the depositary shares exchanged. The shares issuable in the exchange offer are part of Bank of America's previously-announced plan to exchange common stock for non-government perpetual preferred stock. Bank of America believes that these actions will assist in meeting the $33.9 billion indicated Supervisory Capital Assessment Program (SCAP) buffer set by the Federal Reserve.
The exchange offer is subject to the terms and conditions described in the Offer to Exchange dated May 28, 2009, as amended, and the related Letter of Transmittal, previously filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission.
The terms of the exchange offer and procedures for validly tendering and withdrawing depositary shares are described in detail in the Offer to Exchange and related materials, copies of which may be obtained without charge from the information agent for the exchange offer, D.F. King & Co., Inc., by calling (800) 829-6551 (toll free) or (212) 269-5550 (collect). The Offer to Exchange also is available free of charge on the SEC's website at www.sec.gov as an exhibit to the tender offer schedule.
The exchange offer is being made to holders of depositary shares in reliance upon the exemption from the registration requirements of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the "Securities Act"), provided by Section 3(a)(9) of the Securities Act. This press release is not an offer to purchase or an offer to exchange or a solicitation of acceptance of an offer to exchange any securities, and the exchange offer is being made only pursuant to the terms of the Offer to Exchange and the related materials.
