Third-Quarter 2013 Earnings Press Release (PDF)

Supplemental Third-Quarter 2013 Financial Information

Bank of America Corporation today reported net income rose to $2.5 billion in the third quarter of 2013 from $340 million in the year-ago quarter. Earnings per diluted share increased to $0.20 from $0.00 in the third quarter of 2012. For the nine months ended September 30, 2013, net income increased to $8.0 billion from $3.5 billion in the same period a year ago.

Relative to the year-ago quarter, the results for the third quarter of 2013 were driven by reduced negative credit valuation adjustments on the company's credit spreads and increases in equity investment income, net interest income and investment and brokerage income. The company also benefited from improved credit quality and lower expenses. These factors were partially offset by lower mortgage banking income and the negative impact from remeasuring certain deferred tax assets due to the U.K. corporate income tax rate reduction enacted in July 2013.

"This quarter, we saw good loan growth, improved credit quality and record deposit balances. Our customers and clients continue to do more business with us," said Chief Executive Officer Brian Moynihan. "The economy and business climate will improve even more quickly as conditions normalize, and we are well positioned to benefit from that."

"We continued to make good progress on our expense initiatives, and we further strengthened our capital and leverage ratios," said Chief Financial Officer Bruce Thompson.

1 Fully taxable-equivalent (FTE) basis is a non-GAAP financial measure. For reconciliations to GAAP financial measures, refer to pages 22-24 of this press release. Net interest income on a GAAP basis was $10.3 billion, $10.5 billion and $9.9 billion for the three months ended September 30, 2013, June 30, 2013 and September 30, 2012, respectively. Total revenue, net of interest expense, on a GAAP basis was $21.5 billion, $22.7 billion and $20.4 billion for the three months ended September 30, 2013, June 30, 2013 and September 30, 2012, respectively.

2 Total revenue, net of interest expense, on an FTE basis excluding debit valuation adjustments (DVA) and fair value option (FVO) adjustments is a non-GAAP financial measure. DVA gains (losses) were $(292) million, $39 million and $(583) million for the three months ended September 30, 2013, June 30, 2013 and September 30, 2012, respectively. Valuation gains (losses) related to FVO were $(152) million, $10 million and $(1.3) billion for the three months ended September 30, 2013, June 30, 2013 and September 30, 2012, respectively.

Revenue, net of interest expense, on an FTE basisA rose $1.1 billion from the third quarter of 2012 to $21.7 billion. Excluding the impact of debit valuation adjustments (DVA) and fair value option (FVO) adjustments, revenue was $22.2 billion in the third quarter of 2013, compared to $22.5 billion in the third quarter of 2012.

Net interest income, on an FTE basis, totaled $10.5 billion in the third quarter of 2013, compared to $10.2 billion in the third quarter of 2012A. The improvement was driven by reductions in long-term debt balances, less negative market-related premium amortization, lower rates paid on deposits, and higher commercial loan balances. These factors were partially offset by lower consumer loan balances and lower asset yields. Net interest margin was 2.44 percent in the third quarter of 2013, compared to 2.32 percent in the third quarter of 2012.

Noninterest income increased $774 million from the year-ago quarter, led by lower negative FVO adjustments, higher equity investment income primarily related to the gain on the sale of the company's remaining China Construction Bank (CCB) shares in the current quarter, and improved investment and brokerage income. These improvements were partially offset by a $1.4 billion decrease in mortgage banking income from the third quarter of 2012.

The provision for credit losses was $296 million in the third quarter of 2013, down $915 million from the second quarter of 2013 and $1.5 billion less than the third quarter of 2012. The provision for credit losses was lower than net charge-offs, resulting in a $1.4 billion reduction in the allowance for credit losses in the third quarter of 2013. This compares to a $900 million reduction in the allowance in second quarter of 2013, and a $2.3 billion reduction in the third quarter of 2012.

Noninterest expense was $16.4 billion, compared to $17.5 billion in the year-ago quarter, driven primarily by lower litigation expense, reduced expenses in Legacy Assets and Servicing (LAS) and lower personnel expense as the company continued to streamline processes and achieve cost savings. Litigation expense was $1.1 billion in the third quarter of 2013, compared to $471 million in the second quarter of 2013 and $1.6 billion in the third quarter of 2012.

Income tax expense for the third quarter of 2013 was $2.3 billion on $4.8 billion of pretax income. This includes a charge of $1.1 billion for remeasuring certain deferred tax assets due to the U.K. corporate income tax rate reduction of 3 percent enacted in July 2013. In the year-ago quarter, the company reported income tax expense of $770 million on $1.1 billion of pretax income. This included a $0.8 billion charge for remeasuring certain deferred tax assets due to the enacted U.K. corporate income tax rate reduction of 2 percent.

At September 30, 2013, the company had 247,943 full-time employees, down from 257,158 at June 30, 2013, 272,594 at September 30, 2012 and from a peak of approximately 290,500 at September 30, 2011.

Business Highlights

  • Average deposit balances of $522.0 billion increased $43.9 billion, or 9 percent, from the same period a year ago. The increase was driven by growth in liquid products in the current low-rate environment and a $17.4 billion average impact of deposit transfers primarily from GWIM. The average rate paid on deposits in the third quarter of 2013 declined 9 basis points from the year-ago quarter to 10 basis points due to pricing discipline and a shift in the mix of deposits.
  • The number of mobile banking customers increased 26 percent from the year-ago quarter to 14.0 million.
  • U.S. Consumer Credit Card retail spending per average active account increased 10.2 percent from the third quarter of 2012.
  • The U.S. Consumer Credit Card net credit loss rate for the third quarter of 2013 was 3.47 percent, the lowest since the first quarter of 2006.
  • Merrill Edge brokerage assets increased 18 percent from the same period a year ago to $89.5 billion due to market growth and positive account flows.
  • Small business loan originations and commitments rose 31 percent from the year-ago quarter to $2.9 billion.
  • The company's specialized sales force of financial solutions advisors, mortgage loan officers and small business bankers increased to more than 6,900 specialists in the third quarter of 2013, up 18 percent from the same period a year ago, reflecting the company's continued commitment to deliver a "one company" experience to broaden and deepen customer relationships.

Financial Overview

Consumer and Business Banking reported net income of $1.8 billion, up $428 million, or 32 percent, from the year-ago quarter, driven by higher revenue, lower provision expense and lower noninterest expense.

Revenue of $7.5 billion increased $263 million from the year-ago quarter, driven by higher net interest income, partially offset by the impact of the continued low-rate environment on deposit spreads and lower average loans.

Provision for credit losses decreased $245 million from the year-ago quarter to $761 million, reflecting continued improvement in delinquencies. Noninterest expense decreased $131 million from the year-ago quarter to $4.0 billion primarily due to lower personnel expense and lower FDIC expense.

Business Highlights

  • Bank of America funded $24.4 billion in residential home loans and home equity loans during the third quarter of 2013, helping nearly 97,000 homeowners either refinance an existing mortgage or purchase a home through our retail channels. This included more than 5,300 first-time homebuyer mortgages and more than 32,000 mortgages to low- and moderate-income borrowers.
  • Approximately 78 percent of funded first mortgages were refinances and 22 percent were for home purchases.
  • The number of 60+ days delinquent first mortgage loans serviced by LAS declined 19 percent during the third quarter of 2013 to 398,000 loans from 492,000 loans at the end of the second quarter of 2013, and declined 57 percent from 936,000 loans at the end of the third quarter of 2012.

Financial Overview

Consumer Real Estate Services reported a net loss of $1.0 billion for the third quarter of 2013, compared to a net loss of $857 million for the same period in 2012. Revenue declined $1.5 billion from the third quarter of 2012 to $1.6 billion. Noninterest income was $844 million, a decrease of $1.5 billion from the year-ago quarter, primarily due to lower servicing income and lower core production revenue. Core production revenue was $465 million in the third quarter of 2013, down from $944 million in the year-ago quarter, due largely to lower interest rate lock commitments and lower margins. The provision for representations and warranties was $323 million in the third quarter of 2013, compared to $307 million in the third quarter of 2012.

The provision for credit losses decreased $571 million from the year-ago quarter to a provision benefit of $308 million due to continued improvement in portfolio trends including increased home prices and the impact of regulatory guidance in the prior-year period regarding the treatment of loans discharged from Chapter 7 bankruptcy. Noninterest expense decreased to $3.4 billion from $4.2 billion in the third quarter of 2012, due to lower LAS expenses, partially offset by higher expenses in Home Loans. The decline in LAS expenses reflected lower default-related servicing expenses, including continued staff reductions and the divestiture of certain ancillary servicing businesses, while the increase in Home Loan expenses was due primarily to higher loan volume.

The provision for credit losses decreased $939 million from the year-ago quarter to a provision benefit of $549 million, driven primarily by continued improvement in portfolio trends including increased home prices in the residential mortgage portfolio and improved credit quality in non-U.S. Card. Noninterest expense decreased $697 million to $930 million due to lower litigation and personnel expenses.

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 2013, with net charge-offs declining across nearly all major portfolios and the provision for credit losses decreasing from the second quarter of 2013 as well as the year-ago quarter. Net charge-offs were $1.7 billion in the third quarter of 2013, down from $2.1 billion in the second quarter of 2013 and $4.1 billion in the third quarter of 2012. Given the improving trend in delinquencies and other metrics, net charge-offs are expected to continue to decline in the fourth quarter of 2013.

The provision for credit losses was $296 million, a decline of $915 million from the second quarter of 2013 and a decline of $1.5 billion from the third quarter of 2012. The provision for credit losses in the third quarter of 2013 was $1.4 billion lower than net charge-offs, resulting in a reduction in the allowance for credit losses. This included a $248 million benefit in the purchased credit-impaired (PCI) portfolio primarily due to an improved home price outlook. The remaining reduction was driven by improvement in the non-PCI consumer real estate portfolios, primarily due to increased home prices and continued portfolio improvement, as well as lower levels of delinquencies across the Consumer Lending portfolio.

The number of 30+ days delinquent loans, excluding fully-insured loans, declined across all consumer portfolios, again reaching record low levels in the U.S. Consumer Credit Card portfolio. Additionally, reservable criticized balances and nonperforming loans, leases and foreclosed properties also continued to decline, down 19 percent and 20 percent from the year-ago period.

The allowance for loan and lease losses to annualized net charge-off coverage ratio was 2.90 times in the third quarter of 2013, compared with 2.51 times in the second quarter of 2013 and 1.60 times in the third quarter of 2012. The increase was due to the improvement in net charge-offs discussed above. The allowance to annualized net charge-off coverage ratio, excluding PCI, was 2.42 times, 2.04 times and 1.17 times for the same periods, respectively.

Nonperforming loans, leases and foreclosed properties were $20.0 billion at September 30, 2013, a decrease from $21.3 billion at June 30, 2013 and $24.9 billion at September 30, 2012.

2 As of January 1, 2013, the Market Risk Final Rule became effective under Basel 1. The Market Risk Final Rule introduces new measures of market risk including a charge related to stressed Value-at-Risk (VaR), an incremental risk charge and a comprehensive risk measure, as well as other technical modifications. The Basel 1 Tier 1 common capital ratio for September 30, 2012 is not presented as the Market Risk Final Rule did not apply during that period.

n/a = not applicable

The Tier 1 common capital ratio, including the Market Risk Final Rule, was 11.08 percent at September 30, 2013, up from 10.83 percent at June 30, 2013.

As of September 30, 2013, the company's Tier 1 common capital ratio on a Basel 3 fully phased-in basis under the advanced approach is estimated at 9.94 percent, up from 9.60 percent at June 30, 2013 and 8.97 percent at September 30, 2012.

The increase in the estimated Basel 3 Tier 1 common capital ratio from the second quarter of 2013 was primarily due to earnings, lower deductions for deferred tax assets and increases in accumulated other comprehensive income. Estimated Basel 3 risk-weighted assets increased modestly compared to the second quarter of 2013.

Based on the pending proposed U.S. supplementary leverage ratio requirements, the company expects the supplementary leverage ratio for Bank of America Corporation would be above the required 5 percent minimum and the supplementary leverage ratios for the company’s two primary bank subsidiaries, Bank of America, National Association and FIA Card Services, National Association, would be above the 6 percent minimum. The proposed U.S. supplementary leverage ratio requirements are expected to take effect in 2018.

At September 30, 2013, the company's Global Excess Liquidity Sources totaled $359 billion, compared to $342 billion at June 30, 2013 and $380 billion at September 30, 2012. Long-term debt was $255 billion at September 30, 2013, down from $262 billion at June 30, 2013 and $287 billion at September 30, 2012, reflecting the company's continued focus on liability management. Time-to-required funding was 35 months at September 30, 2013, compared to 32 months at June 30, 2013 and 35 months at September 30, 2012.

During the third quarter of 2013, a cash dividend of $0.01 per common share was paid and the company recorded $279 million in preferred dividends, which included $24 million in non-cash dividends associated with $926 million in net preferred stock redemptions.

Period-end common shares issued and outstanding were 10.68 billion at September 30, 2013, 10.74 billion at June 30, 2013 and 10.78 billion at September 30, 2012. The company previously announced that it was authorized to repurchase up to $5.0 billion of common stock. As of September 30, 2013, approximately 140 million common shares had been repurchased for approximately $1.9 billion at an average price of $13.38 per share.

Tangible book value per shareH was $13.62 at September 30, 2013, compared to $13.32 at June 30, 2013 and $13.48 at September 30, 2012. Book value per share was $20.50 at September 30, 2013, compared to $20.18 at June 30, 2013 and $20.40 at September 30, 2012.

(1) Return on average tangible shareholders' equity and tangible book value per share of common stock are non-GAAP financial measures. We believe the use of these non-GAAP financial measures provides additional clarity in assessing the results of the Corporation. Other companies may define or calculate non-GAAP financial measures differently. See Reconciliations to GAAP Financial Measures on pages 22-24.
(2) Ratios do not include loans accounted for under the fair value option during the period. Charge-off ratios are annualized for the quarterly presentation.
(3) Balances do not include past due consumer credit card, consumer loans secured by real estate where repayments are insured by the Federal Housing Administration and individually insured long-term stand-by agreements (fully- insured home loans), and in general, other consumer and commercial loans not secured by real estate; purchased credit-impaired loans even though the customer may be contractually past due; nonperforming loans held-for-sale; nonperforming loans accounted for under the fair value option; and nonaccruing troubled debt restructured loans removed from the purchased credit-impaired portfolio prior to January 1, 2010.
(4) Regulatory capital ratios are preliminary until filed with the Federal Reserve on Form Y-9C.
(5) Basel 1 includes the Market Risk Final Rule at September 30, 2013 and June 30, 2013. Basel 1 did not include the Market Risk Final Rule at September 30, 2012.
(6) Tier 1 common capital ratio equals Tier 1 capital excluding preferred stock, trust preferred securities, hybrid securities and minority interest divided by risk-weighted assets.

(7) Tangible equity ratio equals period-end tangible shareholders’ equity divided by period-end tangible assets. Tangible common equity equals period-end tangible common shareholders' equity divided by period-end tangible assets. Tangible shareholders' equity and tangible assets are non-GAAP financial measures. We believe the use of these non- GAAP financial measures provides additional clarity in assessing the results of the Corporation. Other companies may define or calculate non-GAAP financial measures differently. See Reconciliations to GAAP Financial Measures on pages 22-24.

(8) Basel 3 (fully phased-in) estimates are based on the Advanced Approach under the final Basel 3 rules issued on July 2, 2013.

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. For purposes of this calculation, the Corporation uses the federal statutory tax rate of 35 percent. 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 measures 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. Tangible equity represents an adjusted shareholders' equity or common shareholders' equity amount which has been reduced by goodwill and intangible assets (excluding mortgage servicing rights), net of related deferred tax liabilities. Return on average tangible common shareholders' equity measures the Corporation's earnings contribution as a percentage of adjusted average common shareholders' equity. Return on average tangible shareholders' equity measures the Corporation's earnings contribution as a percentage of adjusted average shareholders' equity. The tangible common equity ratio represents adjusted ending common shareholders' equity 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 adjusted ending shareholders' equity 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 adjusted ending common shareholders' equity 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.
 
Effective January 1, 2013, on a prospective basis, the Corporation adjusted the amount of capital being allocated to its business segments. The adjustment reflects a refinement to the prior-year methodology (economic capital) which focused solely on internal risk-based economic capital models. The refined methodology (allocated capital) now also considers the effect of regulatory capital requirements in addition to internal risk-based economic capital models. The Corporation's internal risk-based capital models use a risk-adjusted methodology incorporating each segment's credit, market, interest rate, business and operational risk components. The capital allocated to the Corporation's business segments is currently referred to as allocated capital and, prior to January 1, 2013, was referred to as economic capital, both of which represent non-GAAP financial measures. Allocated capital in the Corporation's business segments is subject to change over time.
 
See the tables below and on pages 23-24 for reconciliations of these non-GAAP financial measures with financial measures defined by GAAP for the nine months ended September 30, 2013 and 2012, and the three months ended September 30, 2013, June 30, 2013 and September 30, 2012. 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.
