MEMPHIS, Tenn., Aug. 8, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- First Horizon Corporation (NYSE: FHN) ("First Horizon" or "the Company") announced today the results of its 2022 Bank Holding Company-run capital stress test results which demonstrate the ability to successfully navigate periods of economic stress and maintain capital ratios well above regulatory-required minimums. These internally generated results, which utilized the 2022 Severely Adverse Scenario published by the Federal Reserve on February 10, 2022, reflect continued strong risk discipline.


"Our 2022 stress test results illustrate the resilience of our business model, commitment to prudent risk management and strong capital position," said Chief Financial Officer Hope Dmuchowski. "Our minimum common equity tier 1 capital ratio of 8.4% reflects an additional $3.3 billion of pre-tax loss absorption capacity beyond the required regulatory minimums and our stressed loss rates and pre-provision net revenue results once again outperformed the Federal Reserve published CCAR-bank median."

The following table reflects the Company's ending and minimum capital ratios under the Federal Reserve's Severely Adverse Scenario compared to the required regulatory minimums.

First Horizon's loan portfolio stressed loss rate of 2.5% was 3.9 percentage points below the Federal Reserve-published median CCAR-bank result. The Company's stress test utilized Current Expected Credit Loss-based models for allowance and credit losses and reflected total cumulative losses of $1.3 billion.
