"We ended the quarter with record Tier 1 common capital ratio of 11.41 percent and an estimated Basel 3 Tier 1 common capital ratio of 8.97 percent, up from 7.95 percent as of the second quarter of 20121. With these gains, we have turned our attention to driving core earnings."

Bank of America Corporation today reported net income of $340 million, or $0.00 per diluted share, for the third quarter of 2012, compared to $6.2 billion, or $0.56 per diluted share, in the third quarter of 2011.

As previously reported, the third quarter of 2012 was negatively impacted by $1.9 billion of debit valuation adjustments (DVA) and fair value option (FVO) adjustments related to the improvement in the company's credit spreads, $1.6 billion for total litigation expense, including a charge for the previously announced settlement of the Merrill Lynch class action litigation, and a charge of $0.8 billion related to the repricing of certain deferred tax assets due to a reduction in the U.K. corporate tax rate. Together, these three items totaled a negative $0.28 per share.

The year-ago quarter included $6.2 billion in positive DVA and FVO adjustments, $0.6 billion in total litigation expense and $0.8 billion related to the repricing of certain deferred tax assets due to a reduction in the U.K. corporate tax rate. Together, these three items totaled a positive $0.27 per share in the third quarter of 2011. In addition, the year-ago quarter included, among other significant items, a $3.6 billion pretax gain on the sale of a portion of the company's investment in China Construction Bank (CCB), partially offset by $2.2 billion of net losses related to equity and strategic investments other than CCB.

Relative to the year-ago quarter, the results for the third quarter of 2012 were driven by improved credit quality across most major portfolios, increased sales and trading revenue (excluding impact of DVA), higher mortgage banking income and increased investment banking income.

"We are doing more business with our customers and clients: Deposits are up; mortgage originations are up; we surpassed 11 million in mobile customers; small business lending is up 27 percent year over year; loans to our commercial clients rose for the seventh consecutive quarter; and our corporate clients made us the second-ranked global investment banking firm," said Brian Moynihan, chief executive officer. "Our strategy is taking hold even as we work through a challenging economy and continue to clean up legacy issues."

"Our focus on strengthening the balance sheet continued this quarter," said Chief Financial Officer Bruce Thompson. "We ended the quarter with record Tier 1 common capital ratio of 11.41 percent and an estimated Basel 3 Tier 1 common capital ratio of 8.97 percent, up from 7.95 percent as of the second quarter of 20121. With these gains, we have turned our attention to driving core earnings."

Key Business Highlights

The company made significant progress in the third quarter of 2012 in line with its operating principles, including the following developments:

Be customer-driven

  • Bank of America extended approximately $117 billion in credit in the third quarter of 2012. This included $73.7 billion in commercial non-real estate loans, $20.3 billion in residential first mortgages, $10.6 billion in commercial real estate loans, $4.5 billion in U.S. consumer and small business card, $933 million in home equity products and $6.8 billion in other consumer credit.
  • The $20.3 billion in residential first mortgages funded in the third quarter helped more than 80,000 homeowners either purchase a home or refinance an existing mortgage. This included more than 4,400 first-time homebuyer mortgages originated by retail channels, and more than 25,000 mortgages to low- and moderate-income borrowers. Approximately 17 percent of funded first mortgages were for home purchases and 83 percent were refinances.
  • The company originated approximately $6.2 billion in small business loans and commitments in the first nine months of 2012, up 27 percent from the year-ago period, reflecting its continued focus on supporting small businesses.
  • Total client balances in Global Wealth and Investment Management increased 3 percent from the prior quarter to $2.3 trillion, led primarily by market gains, as well as gains in deposit balances, long-term assets under management (AUM) flows and loan balances.
  • The company continued to deepen relationships with customers. The number of mobile banking customers rose 30 percent from the year-ago quarter to 11.1 million customers, and the number of new U.S. credit card accounts opened year-to-date grew 8 percent from 2011.
  • Merrill Edge brokerage assets increased $13.9 billion from the year-ago quarter to $75.9 billion, driven by market improvement and asset growth from new accounts.
  • The company continued to increase the number of Financial Solutions Advisors, mortgage loan officers and small business bankers during the quarter to approximately 5,800 at the end of the third quarter of 2012, approximately 3,200 of whom were deployed in banking centers.
  • The company continued to support the economy by:
    • Helping clients raise $145 billion in capital in the third quarter of 2012, up from $125 billion in the prior quarter.
    • Providing incremental credit to businesses with ending loans in the Global Banking business rising 2.5 percent from the prior quarter to $272.1 billion.
  • Bank of America Merrill Lynch (BofA Merrill) continued to rank No. 2 globally in net investment banking fees during the first nine months of 2012, as reported by Dealogic.

Continue to build a fortress balance sheet

  • Regulatory capital ratios increased with the Tier 1 common capital ratio under Basel 1 increasing to 11.41 percent in the third quarter of 2012, up 17 bps from the second quarter of 2012 and 276 bps higher than the third quarter of 2011.
  • The Tier 1 common capital ratio under Basel 3 on a fully phased-in basis was estimated at 8.97 percent as of September 30, 2012, up from 7.95 percent at June 30, 2012.1
  • The company continued to maintain strong liquidity while significantly reducing long-term debt. Global Excess Liquidity Sources totaled $380 billion at the end of the third quarter of 2012, compared to $378 billion at the end of the prior quarter and $363 billion at September 30, 2011. Long-term debt declined to $287 billion at the end of the third quarter of 2012 from $302 billion at the end of the prior quarter and $399 billion at September 30, 2011.

Manage risk well

  • The provision for credit losses was flat compared to the second quarter of 2012 but down 48 percent from the year-ago quarter, reflecting improved credit quality across most major consumer and commercial portfolios and the impact of underwriting changes implemented over the past several years.
  • Excluding the impact of charge-offs related to the previously disclosed settlement reached in March 2012 with the Department of Justice (DOJ) and 49 state attorneys general regarding mortgage servicing issues (National Mortgage Settlement) and new regulatory guidance for loans discharged in bankruptcies, consumer loan loss rates in the third quarter of 2012 were at their lowest level since the fourth quarter of 20073.
  • Commercial loan loss rates were at their lowest level since the third quarter of 2007.

Deliver for our shareholders

  • Tangible book value per share2 increased to $13.48 at September 30, 2012, compared to $13.22 at both June 30, 2012 and September 30, 2011. Book value per share was $20.40 at September 30, 2012, compared to $20.16 at June 30, 2012 and $20.80 at September 30, 2011.

Manage efficiency well

  • Noninterest expense was relatively flat compared to the year-ago quarter due to an increase in other general operating expenses primarily related to costs associated with the previously announced Merrill Lynch class action settlement and other litigation, and higher mortgage-related and default-related servicing costs. This was partially offset by a decrease in personnel expense as the company continued to streamline processes and achieve cost savings.
  • At September 30, 2012, the company had 272,594 full-time employees, down 2,866 from the end of the prior quarter, and 16,145 fewer than September 30, 2011. Excluding full-time equivalent employee increases in Legacy Assets and Servicing to handle increasing government and private programs for housing, the number of full-time equivalent employees was down nearly 21,000 from the year-ago quarter to 230,900.

Business Highlights

  • Average deposit balances increased 3 percent from the year-ago quarter, driven by growth in liquid products in a low-rate environment. The average rate paid on deposits declined 5 basis points in the third quarter of 2012 from the year-ago quarter due to pricing discipline and a shift in the mix of deposits.
  • In the nine months ended September 30, 2012, the company extended approximately $6.2 billion in small business loans and commitments, reflecting the company's continued focus on supporting small businesses.
  • During the third quarter of 2012, the number of BankAmericard Cash Rewards cards increased by nearly 400,000 to a total of 1.7 million cards since the product launched in the third quarter of 2011.

Financial Overview

Consumer and Business Banking reported net income of $1.3 billion, down $379 million from the year-ago quarter, due to lower revenue partially offset by lower noninterest expense and credit costs.

Revenue decreased by $1.1 billion from the year-ago quarter to $7.1 billion, primarily from the implementation of debit card interchange fee rules in October 2011 as a result of the Durbin Amendment, lower average loan balances, the continued low-rate environment and the negative impact of the company's consumer protection products.

Provision for credit losses decreased $162 million, primarily within the Card Services business, from the year-ago quarter to $970 million due to improvement in delinquencies and bankruptcies. Noninterest expense decreased $286 million to $4.1 billion compared to the third quarter of 2011 as a result of lower FDIC expense and lower operating expenses.

Business Highlights

  • Bank of America funded $21.2 billion in residential home loans and home equity loans during the third quarter of 2012, up 12 percent from the second quarter of 2012, and 18 percent higher than the third quarter of 2011, excluding correspondent originations of $15.9 billion in the year-ago quarter. The company exited the correspondent business in late 2011.
  • The number of 60+ days delinquent first mortgage loans serviced by Legacy Assets and Servicing declined by 126,000 loans, or 12 percent, during the third quarter of 2012 to 936,000 loans from 1.06 million at the end of the second quarter of 2012, and 1.23 million loans at the end of the third quarter of 2011.

Financial Overview

Consumer Real Estate Services reported a net loss of $877 million for the third quarter of 2012, compared to a net loss of $1.1 billion for the same period in 2011. The improvement was due primarily to higher mortgage banking income and lower provision for credit losses, partially offset by higher expenses.

While the Home Loans business was profitable in the quarter, the continued high costs of managing delinquent and defaulted loans in the servicing portfolio combined with the costs associated with managing other legacy mortgage exposures resulted in the overall net loss for CRES for the quarter.

Revenue increased $274 million from the third quarter of 2011 to $3.1 billion in the third quarter of 2012, driven by higher mortgage banking income and other noninterest income, partially offset by lower net interest income. Mortgage banking income increased from the year-ago quarter due to more favorable MSR results, net of hedges, and higher production income.

While loan fundings declined by $12.6 billion compared to the same period in 2011, largely due to the exit from the correspondent channel in late 2011, core production revenue increased by $139 million from the year-ago quarter primarily due to higher margins on a increased volume of direct originations.

Representations and warranties provision was $307 million in the third quarter of 2012, compared to $395 million in the second quarter of 2012 and $278 million in the third quarter of 2011.

The provision for credit losses in the third quarter of 2012 decreased $654 million from the year-ago quarter to $264 million, driven by improved portfolio trends in the non-purchased credit-impaired (PCI) portfolio and reserve reductions in the PCI home equity portfolio partially offset by the impact of new regulatory guidance for loans discharged in bankruptcies.

Noninterest expense increased from the third quarter of 2011 to $4.2 billion, primarily due to higher default-related servicing expenses and litigation expense. This was partially offset by lower production expenses and a reduction in mortgage-related assessments, waivers and other similar costs associated with foreclosure delays.

Business Highlights

  • Period-end loan balances for Global Wealth and Investment Management grew $5.1 billion, or 5 percent, from the third quarter of 2011 to a record $107.5 billion due to higher securities-based lending and residential mortgage production.
  • Period-end deposit balances grew $4.9 billion, or 2 percent, from the third quarter of 2011 to $256.1 billion.
  • Long-term AUM flows of $5.7 billion, up 27 percent from the third quarter of 2011, marking the 13th consecutive quarter of positive flows.
  • The third quarter of 2012 pretax margin was 20 percent, up from 14 percent in the third quarter of 2011.

Financial Overview

Net income for GWIM rose 50 percent from the third quarter of 2011 to $542 million due to lower expenses and credit costs and higher revenue. Revenue increased 1 percent to $4.3 billion largely as a result of higher net interest income.

Noninterest expense decreased 4 percent from the third quarter of 2011 to $3.4 billion due to lower FDIC expense and lower support and personnel costs. The provision for credit losses decreased $101 million from the third quarter of 2011 to $61 million due to lower delinquencies and improving portfolio trends within the residential mortgage portfolio.

Assets under management rose $90.9 billion from the third quarter of 2011 to $707.8 billion, driven by higher market levels and long-term AUM flows.

  • BofA Merrill was ranked No. 2 globally in investment banking fees, for the first nine months of 2012 according to Dealogic. Based on deal volume, BofA Merrill was ranked among the top three banks in high-yield corporate debt, leveraged loans, investment-grade corporate debt, asset-backed securities and syndicated loans for the same period.
  • Nonperforming assets declined by $2.7 billion, or 51 percent, and total reservable criticized loans declined by $10.5 billion, or 46 percent, compared to a year ago.

Financial Overview

Global Banking reported net income of $1.3 billion, up $89 million from the year-ago quarter, as higher revenue and a decline in noninterest expense were partially offset by an increase in provision expense. Revenue of $4.1 billion was up 5 percent from the year-ago quarter, primarily due to gains on the fair value option loan book in the most recent quarter.

In the third quarter of 2012, Global Corporate Banking revenue was $1.4 billion and Global Commercial Banking revenue was $2.0 billion, both relatively unchanged compared to the year-ago quarter. In the third quarter of 2012, Business Lending revenue was $1.9 billion and Treasury Services revenue was $1.5 billion, both also relatively unchanged compared to the third quarter of 2011. Firmwide investment banking fees, excluding self-led deals, increased 42 percent to $1.3 billion in the third quarter of 2012 from $942 million in the year-ago quarter, mainly due to a strong performance in capital markets underwriting activity.

The provision for credit losses was $68 million in the third quarter of 2012, compared to a benefit of $182 million in the prior-year quarter, primarily driven by lower reserve releases as asset quality stabilizes in the portfolio. Noninterest expense was $2.0 billion, down 9 percent from the year-ago quarter, primarily from lower personnel expense and operational costs.

Business Highlights

  • Total revenue, excluding the impact of DVA, increased 5 percent in the third quarter of 2012 to $3.7 billion from $3.5 billion in the prior quarter and was more than double the $1.6 billion reported in the third quarter of 2011. Sales and trading revenue, excluding the impact of DVA4, was $3.2 billion in the third quarter of 2012, compared to $3.3 billion in the second quarter of 2012 and $1.3 billion in the third quarter of 2011.
  • Sales and trading revenue for the core Fixed Income, Currency and Commodities (FICC) business of Credit, Mortgages, and Rates and Currencies grew 4 percent from the prior quarter as market conditions improved.

Financial Overview

Global Markets reported a net loss in the third quarter of 2012 of $359 million, compared to a net loss of $553 million in the year-ago quarter. Excluding DVA losses and the impact of the U.K. tax change, net income was $789 million in the third quarter of 2012, compared to net income of $560 million in the second quarter of 2012 and a net loss of $856 million in the year-ago quarter. The improvement from the third quarter of 2011 was driven by higher sales and trading revenue and an increase in new issuance activity.

Global Markets revenue declined $188 million from the year-ago quarter to $3.1 billion. However, excluding DVA, revenue increased $2.1 billion to $3.7 billion, reflecting solid performance as credit markets improved and volatility declined compared to the difficult market environment in the year-ago period. The current quarter included DVA losses of $582 million, compared to DVA gains of $1.7 billion in the year-ago quarter.

Noninterest expense declined to $2.5 billion from $3.0 billion in the year-ago quarter, primarily driven by a decrease in personnel-related expense and operational costs. Income tax expense for the most recent period included a $0.8 billion charge related to the repricing of certain deferred tax assets due to a reduction in the U.K. corporate tax rate. This compares to a $0.8 billion charge in the year-ago quarter.

Fixed Income, Currency and Commodities sales and trading revenue, excluding DVA5, was $2.5 billion in the third quarter of 2012, an increase of $2.0 billion from the year-ago quarter. Quantitative easing, spread tightening and improved mortgage markets contributed to a solid quarter. Equities sales and trading revenue, excluding DVA, was $712 million, a decline of $41 million from the year-ago quarter as volumes remained at low levels impacting commission revenue.

1 All Other consists of two broad groupings, Equity Investments and Other. Equity Investments includes Global Principal Investments, Strategic and other investments. Other includes liquidating businesses, merger and restructuring charges, ALM activities such as the residential mortgage portfolio and investment securities, and activities including economic hedges, gains/losses on structured liabilities, the impact of certain allocation methodologies and accounting hedge ineffectiveness. Other also includes certain residential mortgage and discontinued real estate loans that are managed by Legacy Assets and Servicing within Consumer Real Estate Services.

All Other reported a net loss of $1.5 billion in the third quarter of 2012, compared to net income of $4.7 billion for the same period a year ago, primarily due to $1.3 billion in negative FVO adjustments on structured liabilities related to the improvement in the company's credit spreads, compared to positive FVO adjustments of $4.5 billion in the third quarter of 2011. Equity investment income was $165 million in the third quarter of 2012, compared to $1.4 billion in the year-ago quarter, which included a $3.6 billion gain on the sale of a portion of the company's investment in CCB partially offset by $2.2 billion of net losses related to equity and strategic investments other than CCB. Gains on the sale of debt securities totaled $327 million in the third quarter of 2012, down from $697 million in the same period a year ago.

The decrease in the provision for credit losses was driven primarily by continued improvement in credit quality in the residential mortgage portfolio as well as the sale of the Canadian consumer credit card portfolio in 2011 and improvement in remaining non-U.S. credit card delinquencies. Noninterest expense increased compared to the third quarter of 2011 as a result of higher litigation expense primarily related to the costs associated with the previously announced Merrill Lynch class action settlement and other litigation. Excluding litigation, noninterest expense decreased compared to the third quarter of 2011.

1 Fully taxable-equivalent (FTE) basis is a non-GAAP financial measure. For reconciliation to GAAP financial measures, refer to pages 25-28 of this press release. Net interest income on a GAAP basis was $9.9 billion, $9.5 billion and $10.5 billion for the three months ended September 30, 2012, June 30, 2012 and September 30, 2011. Total revenue, net of interest expense on a GAAP basis, was $20.4 billion, $22.0 billion and $28.5 billion for the three months ended September 30, 2012, June 30, 2012 and September 30, 2011 respectively.

2 Total revenue, net of interest expense, on an FTE basis excluding DVA and FVO adjustments is a non-GAAP financial measure. DVA gains(losses) were $(583) million, $(158) million and $1.7 billion for the three months ended September 30, 2012, June 30, 2012 and September 30, 2011. Valuation gains (losses) related to FVO were $(1.3) billion, $(62) million and $4.5 billion for the three months ended September 30, 2012, June 30, 2012 and September 30, 2011.

Revenue, net of interest expense, on an FTE basis fell $8.0 billion, or 28 percent, from the third quarter of 2011, driven largely by negative FVO adjustments and net DVA losses. Excluding the impact of DVA and FVO adjustments, revenue, net of interest expense, on an FTE basis, was $22.5 billion in the third quarter of 2012, $22.4 billion in the second quarter of 2012 and $22.5 billion in the third quarter of 2011.

Net interest income, on an FTE basis, decreased 5 percent from the year-ago quarter, as lower consumer loan balances were partially offset by ongoing reductions in long-term debt balances and lower rates paid on deposits. Net interest income for the third quarter of 2012 also included unfavorable market-related impacts of premium amortization of $269 million and hedge ineffectiveness of $55 million down from $319 million and $182 million in the second quarter of 2012. Relative to the second quarter of 2012, net interest income increased 4 percent.

Noninterest income decreased $7.5 billion from the year-ago quarter, driven largely by negative DVA and FVO adjustments and lower equity investment income. FVO adjustments were a negative $1.3 billion in the third quarter of 2012, compared to a positive $4.5 billion in the third quarter of 2011, and net DVA losses were $583 million, compared to net DVA gains of $1.7 billion in the year-ago period. Equity income was down $1.2 billion from the third quarter of 2011 as the year-ago period included net gains related to equity and strategic investments.

Noninterest expense was relatively flat compared to the year-ago quarter, as an increase in other general operating expense primarily related to the costs associated with the previously announced Merrill Lynch class action settlement and other litigation were offset by a decrease in personnel expense as the company continued to streamline processes and achieve cost savings. Litigation expense was $1.6 billion in the third quarter of 2012, compared to $963 million in the second quarter of 2012 and $566 million in the third quarter of 2011.

Income tax expense for the third quarter of 2012 was $770 million, resulting in a 69 percent effective tax rate. This compares to income tax expense of $1.2 billion on $7.4 billion of pretax income resulting in a 16 percent effective tax rate in the year-ago quarter. The three months ended September 30, 2012 included a $0.8 billion charge to income tax expense for the remeasurement of certain U.K. deferred tax assets.

1 Net charge-offs and net charge-off ratio exclude write-offs of consumer purchased credit-impaired loans of $1.7 billion.

2 Net charge-off ratios are calculated as net charge-offs divided by average outstanding loans and leases during the period; quarterly results are annualized.

3 Nonperforming loans, leases and foreclosed properties ratios are calculated as nonperforming loans, leases and foreclosed properties divided by outstanding loans, leases and foreclosed properties at the end of the period.

4 Allowance for loan and lease losses ratios are calculated as allowance for loan and lease losses divided by loans and leases outstanding at the end of the period.

Note: Ratios do not include loans measured under the fair value option.

Credit quality continued to improve in the third quarter of 2012, with net charge-offs declining across nearly all major portfolios and the provision for credit losses decreasing significantly compared to the third quarter of 2011. Additionally, 30+ days performing delinquent loans, excluding fully-insured loans, declined across all major portfolios, and reservable criticized balances also continued to decline, down 44 percent from the year-ago period.

Net charge-offs of $4.1 billion in the third quarter of 2012 increased $496 million from the second quarter of 2012 and declined $964 million from the third quarter of 2011. Included in the current period results were charge-offs of $435 million related to extinguishment of loans in connection with the National Mortgage Settlement and $478 million due to a change in treatment of loans discharged in bankruptcy, as a result of new regulatory guidance stating that such loans should be written down to collateral value irrespective of borrower payment status. Excluding these items, charge-offs improved from both prior periods, driven by fewer delinquent loans and bankruptcy filings in the Card Services portfolios. In addition, net charge-offs declined in the consumer real estate portfolios, driven by fewer delinquent loans and lower refreshed valuation losses on loans greater than 180 days past due. The improvement from a year ago was also impacted by lower net charge-offs in the core commercial portfolio.

The provision for credit losses was $1.8 billion in both the third and second quarters of 2012 and $3.4 billion in the third quarter of 2011. The provision for credit losses in the third quarter of 2012 was $2.3 billion lower than net charge-offs, resulting in a reduction in the allowance for credit losses. This included the utilization of $435 million of reserves on the loans extinguished as a part of the National Mortgage Settlement and a $166 million benefit in the PCI portfolio due to an improved home price outlook. The remaining reduction in the allowance was driven by the consumer real estate portfolios primarily due to improved home prices and continued portfolio stabilization, as well as improvement in bankruptcies and delinquencies across the Card Services portfolio.

The allowance for loan and lease losses to annualized net charge-off coverage ratio was 1.60 times in the third quarter of 2012, compared with 2.08 times in the second quarter of 2012 and 1.74 times in the third quarter of 2011. The decline in coverage was due to increased current-period charge-offs in connection with the National Mortgage Settlement and the change in the treatment of loans discharged in bankruptcy noted above, as well as a $1.7 billion reduction in the PCI allowance due primarily to the extinguishment of home equity loans in connection with the National Mortgage Settlement that were already fully reserved.

The following shows the allowance to annualized net charge-off coverage ratios for the third quarter of 2012 and the effect of the National Mortgage Settlement and the change in the treatment of loans discharged in bankruptcy as noted above, compared to the second quarter of 2012 and the third quarter of 2011.

Excluding the impact of the National Mortgage Settlement the allowance for loan and lease losses at September 30, 2012 would have increased $2.0 billion including the PCI allowance and $435 million excluding the PCI allowance. Excluding the impact of the new regulatory guidance the allowance for loan and lease losses would have increased $139 million including and excluding the PCI allowance. The impact on net charge-offs for the three months ended September 30, 2012 was an increase of $435 million and $478 million for the National Mortgage Settlement and new regulatory guidance.

2 Allowance for loan and lease losses/Annualized net charge-offs (excluding PCI) is a non-GAAP financial measure. Excludes valuation allowance on purchased credit-impaired loans of $7.1 billion, $9.0 billion and $8.2 billion at September 30, 2012, June 30, 2012 and September 30, 2011, respectively.

Nonperforming loans, leases and foreclosed properties were $24.6 billion at September 30, 2012, a decrease from $25.4 billion at June 30, 2012 and $29.1 billion at September 30, 2011. The September 30, 2012 balance included $1.1 billion related to the change in treatment of loans discharged in bankruptcies in accordance with new regulatory guidance, which states that such loans must be classified as nonperforming, irrespective of the delinquency status or payment history.

At September 30, 2012, the company's total Global Excess Liquidity Sources were $380 billion, up $2 billion from the second quarter of 2012 and $17 billion from the third quarter of 2011, despite the continued reduction in long-term debt.

Time-to-required funding was 35 months at September 30, 2012 compared to 37 months at June 30, 2012 and 27 months at September 30, 2011.

During the third quarter of 2012, a cash dividend of $0.01 per common share was paid and the company recorded $373 million in preferred dividends. Period-end common shares issued and outstanding were 10.78 billion and 10.13 billion for the third quarter of 2012 and 2011, respectively.

Reconciliations to GAAP Financial Measures
(Dollars in millions)

The Corporation evaluates its business based on a fully taxable-equivalent basis, a non-GAAP financial measure. The Corporation believes managing the business with net interest income on a fully taxable-equivalent basis provides a more accurate picture of the interest margin for comparative purposes. Total revenue, net of interest expense, includes net interest income on a fully taxable-equivalent basis and noninterest income. The Corporation views related ratios and analyses (i.e., efficiency ratios and net interest yield) on a fully taxable-equivalent basis. To derive the fully taxable-equivalent basis, net interest income is adjusted to reflect tax exempt income on an equivalent before-tax basis with a corresponding increase in income tax expense. This measure ensures comparability of net interest income arising from taxable and tax-exempt sources. The efficiency ratio measures the costs expended to generate a dollar of revenue, and net interest yield evaluates the basis points the Corporation earns over the cost of funds.

The Corporation also evaluates its business based on the following ratios that utilize tangible equity, a non-GAAP financial measure. Return on average tangible common shareholders’ equity measures the Corporation’s earnings contribution as a percentage of average common shareholders’ equity less goodwill and intangible assets (excluding mortgage servicing rights), net of related deferred tax liabilities. Return on average tangible shareholders’ equity measures the Corporation’s earnings contribution as a percentage of average shareholders’ equity less goodwill and intangible assets (excluding mortgage servicing rights), net of related deferred tax liabilities. The tangible common equity ratio represents ending common shareholders’ equity less goodwill and intangible assets (excluding mortgage servicing rights), net of related deferred tax liabilities divided by total assets less goodwill and intangible assets (excluding mortgage servicing rights), net of related deferred tax liabilities. The tangible equity ratio represents total ending shareholders’ equity less goodwill and intangible assets (excluding mortgage servicing rights), net of related deferred tax liabilities divided by total assets less goodwill and intangible assets (excluding mortgage servicing rights), net of related deferred tax liabilities. Tangible book value per common share represents ending common shareholders’ equity less goodwill and intangible assets (excluding mortgage servicing rights), net of related deferred tax liabilities divided by ending common shares outstanding. These measures are used to evaluate the Corporation’s use of equity (i.e., capital). In addition, profitability, relationship and investment models all use return on average tangible shareholders’ equity as key measures to support our overall growth goals.

In addition, the Corporation evaluates its business segment results based on return on average economic capital, a non-GAAP financial measure. Return on average economic capital for the segments is calculated as net income adjusted for cost of funds and earnings credits and certain expenses related to intangibles, divided by average economic capital. Economic capital represents average allocated equity less goodwill and a percentage of intangible assets (excluding mortgage servicing rights). It also believes the use of this non-GAAP financial measure provides additional clarity in assessing the segments.

In certain presentations, earnings and diluted earnings per common share, the efficiency ratio, return on average assets, return on common shareholders’ equity, return on average tangible common shareholders’ equity and return on average tangible shareholders’ equity are calculated excluding the impact of a goodwill impairment charge of $2.6 billion recorded in the second quarter of 2011. Accordingly, these are non-GAAP financial measures.

See the tables below and on pages 26-28 for reconciliations of these non-GAAP financial measures with financial measures defined by GAAP for the three months ended September 30, 2012, June 30, 2012 and September 30, 2011 and the nine months ended September 30, 2012 and 2011. The Corporation believes the use of these non-GAAP financial measures provides additional clarity in assessing the results of the Corporation. Other companies may define or calculate supplemental financial data differently.
