New York Community Bancorp, Inc. Discloses Its 2015 Dodd-Frank Act Company-Run Stress Test Results under the Severely Adverse Scenario

WESTBURY, N.Y.--()--In accordance with the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act (the “Dodd-Frank Act”) and the regulations promulgated thereunder by the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System (the “FRB”), New York Community Bancorp, Inc. (NYSE:NYCB) (the “Company”) today disclosed the results of its 2015 Dodd-Frank Act company-run stress test (“DFAST”) under the Severely Adverse Scenario established by the FRB on October 23, 2014.

The Company’s DFAST results, and those of its savings bank subsidiary, New York Community Bank, have been posted to the Company’s website, www.myNYCB.com, under “Investor Relations” and can be accessed by clicking on “Financial Results” and then on “Regulatory Disclosures.”

The DFAST results reflect the Company’s estimates of losses, pre-provision net revenue, provisions for loan and lease losses, net income, and capital levels under the FRB’s Severely Adverse Scenario over a nine-quarter planning horizon beginning September 30, 2014 and ending on December 31, 2016. These results are not intended to be a forecast of the Company’s future financial condition or results of operations but, rather, a possible outcome based on the hypothetical, severely adverse, macroeconomic conditions developed by the FRB for 2015 DFAST purposes.
