Item 7.01. Regulation FD Disclosure.

On December 17, 2019, SVB Financial Group (the “Registrant”) determined the final redemption price for the previously announced redemption in full of its $350,000,000 5.375% Senior Notes due 2020 (the “Notes”). The Notes will be redeemed at a redemption price equal to $1,023.9864 (for each $1,000 principal amount), resulting in a total redemption price of $358,395,240, excluding accrued interest, to be paid to holders on December 20, 2019. The amount paid in excess of the principal amount of the Notes represents a premium due to holders upon early redemption and will be recorded in other noninterest income and reflected in our quarter- and year-ended December 31, 2019 financial results.

The information in Item 7.01 of this Current Report on Form 8-K is being furnished and shall not be deemed “filed” for purposes of Section 18 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, or otherwise subject to the liabilities of that Section.


Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, the Registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
