JPMorgan Chase Plans Dividend Increase and Has Authorized a New Common Share Repurchase Program (2024)

JPMorgan Chase & Co. (NYSE: JPM) (“JPMorgan Chase” or the “Firm”) announced today that its Board of Directors intends to increase the quarterly common stock dividend to $1.25 per share (up from the current $1.15 per share) for the third quarter of 2024. The Firm’s quarterly common stock dividends are subject to approval by the Board of Directors at the customary times that those dividends are declared.

The Firm’s Board of Directors has authorized a new common share repurchase program of $30 billion, effective July 1, 2024. The authorization to repurchase common shares will be used at management’s discretion, and the timing of repurchases and the exact amount of common shares that may be repurchased under the new authorization will be subject to various considerations.

The Firm’s preliminary Stress Capital Buffer (“SCB”) requirement provided by the Federal Reserve is 3.3% (up from the current 2.9%) and the Firm’s Standardized Common Equity Tier 1 (“CET1”) capital ratio requirement including regulatory buffers is 12.3% (up from the current 11.9%). However, consistent with the Firm’s disclosure on June 26, 2024 regarding the potential for higher stress losses, should the Federal Reserve modify the Firm’s stress results, the Firm’s Standardized CET1 capital ratio requirement would likely be modestly higher than 12.3%. The Federal Reserve will provide the Firm with its final SCB requirement by August 31, 2024, and that requirement will become effective on October 1, 2024 and will remain in effect until September 30, 2025.

Because the Firm's capital planning already accounts for the variability of the SCB requirement and uncertainties concerning regulatory capital requirements, no significant changes to the Firm’s overall capital planning are anticipated.

Jamie Dimon, Chairman and CEO of JPMorgan Chase said: “The strength of our company allows us to continually invest in building our businesses for the future, pay a sustainable dividend, and return any remaining excess capital to our shareholders as we see fit. The Board’s intended dividend increase, our second this year, would represent a sustainable level of capital distribution to our shareholders, which is supported by our strong financial performance and continuous investments in our business. The new share repurchase program provides additional flexibility to return excess capital to our shareholders over time, as and when appropriate. The Federal Reserve’s 2024 stress test results show that banks across the industry are resilient and can withstand severe hypothetical shocks, while continuing to serve as a source of strength to the broader economy. Whereas CCAR is a single, point-in-time stress test, we conduct hundreds of stress tests each week, which include various types of extremely large market movements. We continue to maintain a fortress balance sheet with substantial excess capital, and we remain prepared for a wide range of potential environments so that we can consistently be there for our clients, governments, and communities around the world.”
