April 7 (Reuters) – First Republic Bank ( FRC.N ) said in a regulatory filing on Friday that it will suspend quarterly cash dividend payments on its preferred stock “as a measure of prudential oversight.”
Last month, the bank suspended dividends on ordinary shares following the collapse of Silicon Valley Bank.
Major U.S. banks injected $30 billion in deposits into First Republic Bank last month to rescue the lender, which was caught up in a widening crisis triggered by the collapse of two other mid-sized U.S. lenders.
