Form 8-K for SUNTRUST BANKS INC


20-Jun-2014

Other Events


Item 8.01 Other Events.

As previously disclosed on June 17, 2014, SunTrust Mortgage, Inc. ("SunTrust Mortgage") on the one hand and the United States Department of Justice, the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development, certain other federal agencies, and the Attorneys General for forty-nine states and the District of Columbia (collectively, the "Government") on the other hand, reached a definitive agreement to settle (i) certain civil and administrative claims arising from FHA-insured mortgage loans originated by SunTrust Mortgage from January 1, 2006 through March 31, 2012, and (ii) certain alleged civil claims regarding SunTrust's mortgage servicing and origination practices as part of its portion of the National Mortgage Servicing Settlement. Pursuant to the settlement agreement, and as previously disclosed on October 10, 2013, SunTrust will provide $500 million of consumer relief, make a $468 million cash payment, and implement certain mortgage servicing standards. In return, the Government released SunTrust Mortgage, SunTrust Banks, Inc., and its affiliates (collectively "SunTrust" or the "Company") from most claims.

The Company previously recorded the estimated cost of this settlement, including providing the contemplated consumer relief, in the third of quarter of 2013, at the time it announced the agreements in principle. The Company does not expect to record additional costs as a result of the definitive agreement and does not expect that the implementation of servicing standards required by the settlement agreement will have a material impact on its future results.
