Item 8.01. Other Events.
On March 4, 2021, in accordance with the Deposit Agreement, dated as of November 23, 2015, by and among U.S. Bancorp, a Delaware corporation (the “Company”), U.S. Bank National Association (the “Depositary”) and the holders of depositary receipts issued thereunder from time to time, the Company provided notice to the Depositary to redeem, on April 15, 2021, all 30,000 outstanding shares of its Series I Non-Cumulative Perpetual Preferred Stock, par value $1.00 per share (the “Series I Preferred Stock”), and the corresponding depositary shares, each representing a 1/25th interest in a share of the Series I Preferred Stock (the “Series I Depositary Shares”). The Series I Preferred Stock will be redeemed at a redemption price per share equal to $25,000 (equivalent to $1,000 per Series I Depositary Share). Because the redemption date is also a dividend payment date, the redemption price does not include any declared and unpaid dividends. The regular quarterly dividend for the full current quarterly dividend period from, and including, January 15, 2021 to, but excluding, April 15, 2021 will be paid separately in the customary manner on April 15, 2021 to holders of record on March 31, 2021.
A copy of the press release announcing the redemption is attached hereto as Exhibit 99.1 and is incorporated herein by reference.
