A preliminary prospectus supplement relating to the offering of BlackRock shares will be filed by BlackRock with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission. PNC currently holds 34.8 million common and Series B preferred shares of BlackRock, representing 22.4% ownership.

In connection with the offering, the underwriters will have an option to purchase up to an additional amount of BlackRock shares, exercisable within 30 days following the pricing of the offering.
