SALT LAKE CITY, March 20, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Under the results published today by the Federal Reserve, under the hypothetical severely adverse economic stress scenario in the Dodd-Frank Act Stress Test (DFAST) run by the Federal Reserve, Zions Bancorporation's (NASDAQ: ZION) capital ratios would not have met the minimum requirements under the Federal Reserve's capital adequacy rules. Zions announced today that, based upon an initial review of the Federal Reserve's publication, Zions' DFAST results were worse than Zions had projected primarily because of the following factors:
1) Significantly higher commercial real estate losses,
2) Significantly greater risk-weighted assets, and
3) Lower pre-tax, pre-provision net revenue.
Zions also notes that its original submission to the Federal Reserve occurred prior to the sale of certain collateralized debt obligation securities (CDOs) in January and February 2014, which sales also resulted in a substantial reduction in risk.
As a result of the Federal Reserve's stress tests, Zions will resubmit its capital plan to the Federal Reserve and anticipates that the resubmission will contain additional actions that will further reduce risk and/or increase its common equity capital sufficient to cause Zions' capital ratios to meet or exceed the minimum capital ratios under the Federal Reserve's hypothetical severely adverse economic stress scenario.

This press release contains statements that relate to preliminary analyses and review undertaken by Zions Bancorporation with respect to the Federal Reserve's stress test results and possible future actions Zions may take to reduce risk or increase its capital. Factors that might cause our understanding of the stress test results to change include detailed analyses of the multiple factors involved in the stress test and comparisons of assumptions and scenarios used by the Federal Reserve in its stress test and those used by Zions in its stress tests. Factors that might cause our future actions to differ from those anticipated include our more detailed understanding of the Federal Reserve's stress test, the results of the stress test we intend to resubmit to the Federal Reserve, the feasibility of various potential future actions, and market and macroeconomic conditions. Accordingly, the statements contained in this press release are based on facts and circumstances as understood by management of the company on the date of this press release, which may change in the future.
