"We published a report three years ago saying what if interest rates don't rise," Mayo said. "Well guess what, interest rates didn't rise and they are in a tougher position than they were then. But today is the day that Comerica moves from its Plan A to its Plan B."

Mayo continued that Comerica's management displayed a "sense of urgency to restructure" and that "all options are on the table." In fact, management even said that they would consider strategic alternatives at least seven times during the presentation.
