FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

KEYCORP ANNOUNCES PLAN TO INCREASE COMMON STOCK

DIVIDEND AND SHARE REPURCHASE PROGRAM

No Objection from Federal Reserve to Company’s CCAR Capital Plan; Plan reflects

meaningful increase in shareholder payout

CLEVELAND, June 28, 2018 – KeyCorp (NYSE: KEY) announced its 2018 Capital Plan, which was submitted as part of the Federal Reserve’s Comprehensive Capital Analysis and Review. The Federal Reserve indicated it had no objection to the Company’s plan, which includes:

 

    A common share repurchase program of up to $1.225 billion

 

    A 42% increase in the quarterly common share dividend from $0.12 per share up to $0.17 per share

KeyCorp’s Board of Directors will consider the potential dividend increase for the third quarter of 2018. Share repurchases under the capital plan have been authorized by KeyCorp’s Board of Directors and include repurchases to offset issuances of common shares under Key’s employee compensation plans. KeyCorp intends to repurchase its common shares in the open market or through privately negotiated transactions over a four-quarter time period. The Company anticipates repurchasing common shares under the 2018 capital plan through June 30, 2019. The reacquired shares will be held as treasury shares and may be reissued for various corporate purposes.

“KeyCorp’s capital plan for the year ahead demonstrates our discipline and commitment to return capital to our shareholders with a meaningful increase in payout as we move toward our long-term targets,” said Beth Mooney, Chairman and CEO, KeyCorp. “Included within the plan is a significant 42% increase in the quarterly common share dividend, to $0.17 per share, and a 53% increase in our common share repurchase authorization. With improved profitability and broad-based business growth, we are well positioned and look forward to continue building value for our shareholders.”
