Item 8.01.
Other Events.

Wells Fargo & Company (“Wells Fargo” or the “Company”) held a live conference call on April 12, 2019 to discuss its first quarter 2019 earnings, and during the call the Company’s interim Chief Executive Officer and President, Allen Parker, discussed matters relating to the Company’s consent order, dated February 2, 2018, with the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System (the “Federal Reserve”). Mr. Parker noted that the most important thing for the Company is that – in its ongoing, constructive engagement with the Federal Reserve – the Company focuses on getting the work done under the consent order in a first-rate and sustainable way, and not focus unduly on when the Company believes that process will be completed. Mr. Parker also noted that, as a result, the Company does not feel it is appropriate to provide guidance as to the timing of the lifting of the consent order’s asset cap limitation.

Cautionary Statement about Forward-Looking Statements

This report contains forward-looking statements about our future financial performance and business, including our plans and expectations relating to the consent order and its asset cap limitation. Because forward-looking statements are based on our current expectations and assumptions regarding the future, they are subject to inherent risks and uncertainties. Do not unduly rely on forward-looking statements as actual results could differ materially from expectations. Forward-looking statements speak only as of the date made, and we do not undertake to update them to reflect changes or events that occur after that date. For information about factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from our expectations, refer to our reports filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission, including the “Forward-Looking Statements” discussion in Wells Fargo’s most recent Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q as well as to Wells Fargo’s other reports filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission, including the discussion under “Risk Factors” in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2018, available on its website at
