Form 8-K for AMERICAN EXPRESS CO


14-Mar-2013

Regulation FD Disclosure


Item 7.01 Regulation FD Disclosure

On March 14, 2013, American Express Company (the "Company") was informed that the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System (the "Federal Reserve") did not object to the Company's plans to return capital to shareholders through share repurchases of up to $3.2 billion during the second, third and fourth quarters of 2013 and up to $1.0 billion in the first quarter of 2014, as well as an increase in the Company's quarterly dividend to $0.23 per share from $0.20 per share, beginning with the second quarter 2012 dividend declaration, subject to approval of the Company's Board of Directors. The actual number of shares that will be repurchased will be based on the Company's business plans, financial performance and market conditions. As the Company has previously disclosed, its objective is to return to shareholders, on average and over time, approximately 50% of the capital it generates, through a combination of dividends and the repurchase of the Company's common shares. To facilitate repurchases, the Company may, from time to time, make purchases pursuant to one or more trading plans under Rule 10b5-1 under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, which allows the Company to repurchase common shares during periods when the Company might otherwise be prevented from doing so under applicable law or because of self-imposed trading blackout periods.

The Company is furnishing a press release, dated March 14, 2013, which is attached as Exhibit 99.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K and incorporated herein by reference. In addition, the results of the Company-run stress test under the Federal Reserve's Regulation YY can be found on the Company's Investor Relations web site at http://ir.americanexpress.com.

99.1 American Express Company press release, dated March 14, 2013.
