Doral Financial Corporation Developing Revised Capital Plan

SAN JUAN, PR -- (Marketwired) -- 05/01/14 -- Doral Financial Corporation (NYSE: DRL) ("Doral", "Doral Financial" or the "Company"), the holding company of Doral Bank, with operations in Puerto Rico and the U.S., said today that it is in the process of developing a revised capital plan intended to enable the Company to remain in compliance with the requirements of its regulators. Among other things, this revised plan is intended to address a recent determination by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (the "FDIC") regarding the treatment of tax receivables from the Government of Puerto Rico, as discussed in further detail in a Form 8-K disclosure filed by the Company today.

"For some time now, as we have indicated previously, we have been developing and evaluating alternative strategic initiatives to respond to significant trends affecting the Company, including the adverse effects on our business from the continued economic problems in Puerto Rico as well as our success in building a US-based business," said Glen Wakeman, CEO and President of Doral Financial Corporation. "In response to the latest regulatory developments, we are now in the process of developing a revised capital plan, which may include a sale of certain performing and non-performing assets and businesses and a modification of our capital structure, in an effort to adequately meet the requirements of our regulators."

He continued, "We are working diligently to resolve these issues and reach an agreement with our regulators that will allow us to move forward in an orderly way. In the meantime, and importantly, we believe Doral has adequate liquidity to finance its operations as we work through this process. Doral, our Board of Directors and the entire management team remain fully committed to serving our valued customers."

Doral noted that its customer deposits are FDIC-insured to the fullest extent of the law for up to $250,000 per depositor.
