  • Failure to attract and retain employees and the impact of senior leadership transitions may adversely impact our ability to successfully execute our growth and efficiency strategies.

  • We may not be able to successfully implement current or future information technology system enhancements and operational initiatives, which could adversely affect our business operations and profitability.
  • We rely extensively on information technology systems to operate our business and an interruption or security breach may disrupt our business operations, result in reputational harm and have an adverse effect on our operations.
  • If our enterprise risk management framework is not effective at mitigating risk and loss to us, we could suffer unexpected losses and our results of operations could be materially adversely affected.
  • Our ability to maintain our reputation is critical to the success of our business, and the failure to do so may materially adversely affect our performance.
  • We rely on other companies to provide key components of our business infrastructure.
  • Our independent sales organization relationships are complex and may expose us to losses.
  • The costs and effects of litigation, investigations or similar matters involving us or other financial institutions or counterparties, or adverse facts and developments related thereto, could materially affect our business, operating results and financial condition.

  • Our allowance for credit losses may not cover actual losses, and we may be required to materially increase our allowance, which may adversely affect our capital, financial condition and results of operations.
  • Changes in the cost and availability of funding due to changes in the deposit market and credit market may adversely affect our capital resources, liquidity and financial results.
  • Changes in our asset quality could adversely affect our results of operations and financial condition.

  • We may not be able to generate sufficient cash to service all of our debt and repay maturing debt obligations.
  • The fiscal and monetary policies of the federal government and its agencies could have a material adverse effect on our earnings.
  • The banking industry is highly regulated, and the regulatory framework, together with any future legislative or regulatory changes, may have a significant adverse effect on our business, financial condition or results of operations.
  • We may become subject to supervisory actions and enhanced regulation that could have a material adverse effect on our business, reputation, operating flexibility, financial condition and the value of our common stock and preferred stock.
  • We may be required to conserve capital or undertake additional strategic initiatives to improve our capital position due to changes in economic conditions or changes in regulatory capital rules.
  • Inflation could negatively impact our business, our profitability and our stock price.
  • Any future economic downturn could have a material adverse effect on our capital, financial condition, results of operations, and future growth.
  • Interest rates on our outstanding financial instruments might be subject to change based on developments related to LIBOR, which could adversely affect our revenue, expense, and the value of our financial instruments.
  • Our concentrated operations in the Southeastern U.S. make us vulnerable to local economic conditions, local weather catastrophes, public health issues and other external events, which could adversely affect our results of operations and financial condition.
Management Discussion
  • The U.S. economy contracted in the first half of 2020, ending the longest expansionary period in U.S. history, due to the COVID-19 pandemic. During March 2020, in an effort to lessen the impact of COVID-19 on consumers and businesses, the Federal Reserve reduced the federal funds rate 1.5 percentage points to 0.00 to 0.25 percent and the U.S. government enacted the CARES Act, the largest economic stimulus package in the nation’s history. Synovus responded to the pandemic, beginning in March 2020, by supporting our clients, employees, and communities with such measures as remote work capabilities and branch service enhancements, loan payment deferrals, and accelerated investments in several technology initiatives that provided more convenience and a better digital experience as clients adapted to this highly virtual environment. Synovus participated in the PPP and funded approximately 28,000 loans totaling nearly $3.9 billion under the programs available in both 2020 and 2021.
  • Additional government spending measures and the availability of vaccines improved consumer confidence and demand, and the economy largely reopened in 2021, leading to a reduction in the unemployment rate and accelerated GDP growth. While 2021 has seen a recovery in the U.S. economy compared to 2020, uncertainty and market disruptions such as additional coronavirus variants, pandemic-related supply chain issues and labor shortages persist. The economic expansion has been met with inflationary pressures that are expected to result in FOMC policy-tightening in 2022, likely including multiple interest rate hikes. With a strong asset-sensitive balance sheet and our position in Southeast markets that have generally avoided prolonged lockdowns, Synovus expects increases in loan demand and interest rates will improve returns going forward.
