Item 2.02 Results of Operations and Financial Condition.

On October 13, 2023, The PNC Financial Services Group, Inc. (the “Corporation”) issued a press release regarding the Corporation’s earnings and business results for the third quarter of 2023. A copy of the Corporation’s press release is included in this Report as Exhibit 99.1 and is furnished herewith.

In connection therewith, the Corporation provided supplementary financial information on its website. A copy of the Corporation’s supplementary financial information is included in this Report as Exhibit 99.2 and is furnished herewith.

Item 2.05 Costs Associated with Exit or Disposal Activities.

On October 6, 2023, as part of ongoing cost reduction initiatives, the Corporation committed to a workforce reduction expected to reduce its workforce by approximately 4 percent. Affected employees were informed of the workforce reduction beginning on October 6, 2023. The Corporation expects to incur one-time, pre-tax charges and costs associated with these actions of approximately $150 million, primarily related to cash severance, benefits and related termination costs. The Corporation expects that the majority of the charges will be incurred in the fourth quarter of 2023. The Corporation anticipates that implementation of the workforce reduction will be almost entirely complete in the fourth quarter of 2023, and will reduce personnel expenses by approximately $325 million, or 5 percent, annually (estimated based on the annualized pre-reduction personnel expense of affected employees, compared to total personnel expense).

Cautionary Statement Regarding Forward-Looking Information

This Report contains forward-looking statements regarding the Corporation’s anticipated size and timing of a workforce reduction, and the associated costs and cash expenditures and savings. Forward-looking statements are necessarily subject to numerous assumptions, risks and uncertainties, which change over time. Future events or circumstances may change our outlook and may also affect the nature of the assumptions, risks and uncertainties to which our forward-looking statements are subject. The forward-looking statements in this Report speak only as of the date of this Report, and we assume no duty, and do not undertake, to update them. Actual results or future events could differ, possibly materially, from those that we anticipated in these forward-looking statements. As a result, we caution against placing undue reliance on any forward-looking statements. Forward-looking statements in this Report are subject to risks and uncertainties that include the risk that timing for completion of these actions may be delayed or more difficult to achieve than anticipated, including as a result of legal requirements related to workforce reductions that vary by jurisdiction, or the risk that associated costs and cash expenditures may be more than anticipated and the savings may be less than anticipated. These forward-looking statements are also subject to the principal risks and uncertainties applicable to our businesses generally that are disclosed in our 2022 Form 10-K and in our subsequent filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission.
