On March 14, 2013, the Corporation announced that its Board of Directors authorized the repurchase of up to $5.0 billion of common stock. The timing and amount of common stock repurchases have been and will continue to be consistent with the Corporation's 2013 capital plan and will be subject to various factors, including the Corporation's capital position, liquidity, applicable legal considerations, financial performance and alternative uses of capital, stock trading price, and general market conditions, and may be suspended at any time. The remaining common stock repurchases may be effected through open market purchases or privately negotiated transactions, including repurchase plans that satisfy the conditions of Rule 10b5-1 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934.

During the three and nine months ended September 30, 2013, the Corporation repurchased and retired 60.0 million and 139.6 million shares of common stock, which reduced shareholders' equity by $866 million and $1.9 billion.
