I wonder if the "internal system issues" mentioned could be related to this story from CNBC. Wells Fargo CFO Atkins to Retire; Successor Named - CNBC

Wells Fargo CFO Atkins to Retire; Successor Named "The bank said Atkins is retiring for personal reasons and his retirement from the company will be effective in August, after an unpaid leave of absence that begins immediately."

I think it's a llittle unusual for a retirement of a CFO to begin immediately with a seven month unpaid leave of absence.
