Treasury Dept. closes offering to buy M&T shares

Rochester Business Journal
December 19, 2012

The U.S. Department of the Treasury has closed a secondary public offering of warrants allowing it to purchase shares of M&T Bank Corp. stock.

The closing of 1,218,522 warrants came Monday, the Buffalo-based bank said in a filing with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission.

Each of the warrants entitled the Treasury to buy one share of common stock at par value of 50 cents a share, the filing states. The warrants have an exercise price of $73.86 a share and expire Dec. 23, 2018.

The public offering commenced Dec. 11, SEC documents state. The price of the warrants, as determined by an auction process, was equal to $26.50 per warrant.

The Treasury granted the warrants to M&T in December 2008 as part of a $600 million preferred stock investment in the bank from the Troubled Assets Relief Program.
