Item 8.01 Other Events.

On May 5, 2021, Atlantic Union Bankshares Corporation (the “Company”) announced that its Board of Directors (the “Board”) has authorized (effective May 4, 2021) a share repurchase program to purchase up to $125 million of the Company’s common stock in open market transactions or privately negotiated transactions, including pursuant to a trading plan in accordance with Rule 10b5-1 and/or Rule 10b-18 under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended. The authorization permits management to repurchase shares of the Company’s common stock from time to time at management’s discretion. The actual means and timing of any shares purchased under the program will depend on a variety of factors, including the market price of the Company’s common stock, general market and economic conditions, and applicable legal and regulatory requirements. The repurchase program is authorized through June 30, 2022, although it may be modified or terminated by the Board at any time. The repurchase program does not obligate the Company to purchase any particular number of shares.

Additionally, on May 5, 2021, the Company also announced that its Board had declared a quarterly dividend of $0.28 per share of common stock. The dividend is payable on June 4, 2021 to common shareholders of record as of May 21, 2021.

The Company also announced that the Board declared a quarterly dividend on the Company’s 6.875% Perpetual Non-Cumulative Preferred Stock, Series A (the “Series A preferred stock”).
