Bank of America Corporation today reported net income of $5.3 billion, or $0.45 per diluted share, for the second quarter of 2015, compared to $2.3 billion, or $0.19 per share, in the year-ago period. Revenue, net of interest expense, on an FTE basis, rose $385 million, or 2 percent, from the second quarter of 2014 to $22.3 billion(I).

 

Net interest income for the most recent quarter included $669 million ($0.04 per share) in positive market-related adjustments, primarily from the company’s debt securities portfolio, due to the impact of higher long-term interest rates. This compares with $175 million in negative market-related adjustments in the year-ago quarter.

 

“Solid core loan growth, higher mortgage originations and the lowest expenses since 2008 contributed to our strongest earnings in several years, as we continued to build broader and deeper relationships with our customers and clients,” said Chief Executive Officer Brian Moynihan. “We also benefited from the improvement in the U.S. economy, where we are particularly well positioned.

 

“Also, we continued to deliver value for our shareholders by increasing tangible book value and returning $1.3 billion in capital through common stock repurchases and dividends.”

 

“We strengthened an already strong and highly liquid balance sheet this quarter,” said Chief Financial Officer Bruce Thompson. “We improved capital and liquidity to record levels. Equally important, we put our balance sheet to work this quarter, growing core loan balances while maintaining strong risk underwriting.”

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 $10.5 billion, $9.5 billion and $10.0 billion for the three months ended June 30, 2015, March 31, 2015 and June 30, 2014, respectively. Total revenue, net of interest expense, on a GAAP basis was $22.1 billion, $21.2 billion and $21.7 billion for the three months ended June 30, 2015, March 31, 2015 and June 30, 2014, respectively.

 

2 Noninterest expense includes litigation expense of $175 million, $370 million and $4.0 billion for the three months ended June 30, 2015, March 31, 2015 and June 30, 2014, respectively.

 

Net interest income, on an FTE basis, was $10.7 billion in the second quarter of 2015, up 5 percent, or $490 million, from the year-ago quarter. The improvement was driven by the market-related adjustments mentioned above, lower long-term debt balances, deposit growth and commercial loan growth. This was partially offset by lower consumer loan balances and lower yields. Excluding the impact of the market-related adjustments, net interest income was $10.0 billion in the second quarter of 2015, compared to $10.2 billion in the prior quarter and $10.4 billion in the year-ago quarter(I).

 

Noninterest income was down $105 million from the year-ago quarter to $11.6 billion as higher mortgage banking income and higher investment and brokerage services income were more than offset by lower equity investment income, reduced gains on sales of debt securities, and modest declines in sales and trading revenue and investment banking fees. Noninterest income for the second quarter of 2015 also included $346 million in pretax gains on sales of consumer real estate loans, compared to $170 million in pretax gains in the year-ago quarter.

 

The provision for credit losses increased $369 million from the second quarter of 2014 to $780 million. Adjusted for the impact of the August 2014 U.S. Department of Justice (DoJ) settlement (previously reserved for) and recoveries from nonperforming loan sales, net charge-offs declined $329 million, or 26 percent, from the second quarter of 2014 to $929 million, with the adjusted net charge-off ratio falling to 0.43 percent in the second quarter of 2015 from 0.56 percent in the year-ago quarter(D). The decline in net charge-offs was driven by an improvement in consumer portfolio trends. In the second quarter of 2015, the reserve release was $288 million, including the utilization of previously accrued DoJ reserves, compared to a reserve release of $662 million in the second quarter of 2014.

 

Noninterest expense declined $4.7 billion, or 25 percent, from the second quarter of 2014 to $13.8 billion. Excluding litigation expense of $175 million in the second quarter of 2015 and $4.0 billion in the year-ago quarter, noninterest expense decreased 6 percent from the year-ago quarter to $13.6 billion, reflecting continued progress on Legacy Assets and Servicing (LAS) cost initiatives, and good expense control(B).

 

The effective tax rate for the second quarter of 2015 was 29.2 percent.

  • The company originated $16.0 billion in first-lien residential mortgage loans and $3.2 billion in home equity loans in the second quarter of 2015, compared to $11.1 billion and $2.6 billion, respectively, in the year-ago quarter.
  • Client brokerage assets increased $16.0 billion, or 15 percent, from the year-ago quarter to $122.0 billion, driven primarily by strong account flows and improved market valuations.
  • The company issued 1.3 million new consumer credit cards in the second quarter of 2015, the highest number since the third quarter of 2008 and up from the 1.1 million cards issued in the year-ago quarter.
  • The number of mobile banking customers increased to 17.6 million users, and 13 percent of all deposit transactions by consumers were done through mobile devices, compared to 10 percent in the year-ago quarter.

Financial Overview

 

Consumer Banking reported net income of $1.7 billion, up 4 percent from the year-ago quarter, as the business reduced expenses for the fourth consecutive quarter and asset quality continued to improve. These factors were partially offset by a decline in net interest income.

 

Revenue was down 1 percent from the second quarter of 2014 to $7.5 billion, as the allocation of asset liability management (ALM) activities and lower card yields and card loan balances were partially offset by higher noninterest income. Noninterest income of $2.6 billion was up 2 percent, driven by higher card income and higher mortgage banking income.

 

The provision for credit losses decreased $44 million from the year-ago quarter to $506 million, driven by continued improvement in credit quality within the credit card and consumer vehicle lending portfolios.

 

Noninterest expense decreased 4 percent from the second quarter of 2014 to $4.3 billion, as the company continued to optimize its delivery network. Driven by the continued growth in mobile banking and other self-service customer touchpoints, the company continued to refine its retail footprint, closing or divesting 267 locations and adding 33 locations since the second quarter of 2014, resulting in a total of 4,789 financial centers at the end of the second quarter of 2015.

 

Return on average allocated capital was 24 percent in the second quarter of 2015, compared to 22 percent in the second quarter of 2014.

Business Highlights

 

  • Total client balances increased $53.5 billion from the year-ago quarter to more than $2.5 trillion, driven by net inflows.
  • Second-quarter 2015 long-term assets under management (AUM) flows of $8.6 billion were the 24th consecutive quarter of positive flows.
  • Asset management fees increased 9 percent from the second quarter of 2014 to $2.1 billion.
  • Average loan balances increased 10 percent from the year-ago quarter to $130.3 billion, marking the 21st consecutive quarter of loan balance growth.
  • The number of wealth advisors increased by 1,077 advisors from the year-ago quarter to 17,798. This includes an additional 333 advisors in Consumer Banking as the company continues to expand its specialist network to broaden and deepen client relationships.

Financial Overview

 

Global Wealth and Investment Management reported net income of $690 million, compared to $726 million in the second quarter of 2014. Revenue was relatively stable at $4.6 billion, as a 9 percent increase in asset management fees and higher net interest income from loan growth were offset by the impact of the company’s allocation of ALM activities on net interest income, and lower transactional revenue. The second-quarter 2015 pretax margin was relatively constant at 24 percent.

 

Noninterest expense of $3.5 billion was relatively unchanged compared to the year-ago quarter due to an increase in personnel costs driven by higher revenue-related incentive compensation and investment in client-facing professionals, offset by lower support costs. The provision for credit losses increased $23 million from the year-ago quarter to $15 million.

 

Return on average allocated capital was 23 percent in the second quarter of 2015, compared to 24 percent in the year-ago quarter.

  • Bank of America Merrill Lynch was ranked among the top three global financial institutions in leveraged loans, asset-backed securities, convertible debt, investment grade corporate debt, syndicated loans, announced mergers and acquisitions and debt capital markets during the second quarter of 2015(J).

Financial Overview

 

Global Banking reported net incomeof $1.3 billion in the second quarter of 2015, generating a return on average allocated capital of 14 percent. The quarter included strong loan growth, deposit growth and solid investment banking income, although down from a strong year-ago quarter. This compares with net income of $1.4 billion and a return on average allocated capital of 17 percent in the year-ago quarter.

 

Within revenue, net interest income was down $229 million, reflecting the impact of the company’s allocation of ALM activities and liquidity costs as well as compression in loan spreads. This was offset in part by loan growth. Total corporation investment banking fees, excluding self-led deals, declined to $1.5 billion in the second quarter from a strong year-ago quarter of $1.6 billion, with higher advisory fees more than offset by a decline in equity issuance fees from record levels a year ago.

 

The provision for credit losses increased $41 million from the year-ago quarter to $177 million in line with higher loan balances as compared to the year-ago quarter. Noninterest expense decreased $66 million, or 3 percent, from the year-ago quarter to $1.9 billion, reflecting lower litigation expense and other technology initiative costs, partly offset by investment in client-facing personnel.

Business Highlights

 

  • Equities sales and trading revenue, excluding net DVA, increased 13 percent from the year-ago quarter to $1.2 billion, largely driven by increased client activity in the Asia-Pacific region and strong performance in derivatives(K).

Financial Overview

 

Global Markets reported net income of $993 million in the second quarter of 2015, compared to $1.1 billion in the year-ago quarter, reflecting lower gains on an equity investment (not included in sales and trading) and, to a lesser degree, lower sales and trading revenue. This was offset in part by reduced noninterest expense.

 

Revenue decreased $340 million, or 7 percent, from the year-ago quarter to $4.3 billion. Excluding net DVA, revenue decreased $373 million, or 8 percent, to $4.2 billion(L). Net DVA gains were $102 million, compared to $69 million in the year-ago quarter.

 

Fixed Income, Currencies and Commodities sales and trading revenue, excluding net DVA, decreased 9 percent from the year-ago quarter, due to declines in credit-related businesses, offset in part by an improvement in macro products on increased client activity(M). Equities sales and trading revenue, excluding net DVA, increased 13 percent from the year-ago quarter, reflecting increased client activity in the Asia-Pacific region and strong performance in derivatives(K).

 

Noninterest expense of $2.7 billion decreased $152 million from the year-ago quarter, driven by a reduction in revenue-related incentive compensation and lower support costs.

 

Return on average allocated capital was 11 percent in the second quarter of 2015, compared to 13 percent in the year-ago quarter.

Business Highlights

 

  • The number of 60+ days delinquent first mortgage loans serviced by LAS declined to 132,000 loans at the end of the second quarter of 2015, down 21,000 loans, or 14 percent, from the prior quarter and down 131,000 loans, or 50 percent, from the year-ago quarter.
  • Noninterest expense, excluding litigation, was $902 million in the second quarter of 2015, down from $1.0 billion in the first quarter of 2015 and $1.4 billion in the second quarter of 2014(C).

Financial Overview

 

Legacy Assets and Servicing reported net income of $45 million in the second quarter of 2015, compared to a loss of $2.7 billion for the same period in 2014, driven by lower expenses, primarily litigation expense, and a benefit in the provision for representations and warranties.

 

The most recent quarter included a net benefit of $204 million in representations and warranty provision, driven by a recent court ruling involving the New York statute of limitations on filing representations and warranties claims. Excluding representations and warranties provision (benefit) in both periods, revenue was relatively unchanged from the second quarter of 2014 with improved MSR net-of-hedge performance, mostly offset by lower servicing fees due to a smaller servicing portfolio.

 

The provision for credit losses increased $96 million from the year-ago quarter to $57 million as the company continues to release reserves but at a slower pace than in the year-ago quarter.

 

Noninterest expense decreased $4.3 billion from the year-ago quarter to $961 million primarily due to a decrease in litigation expense of $3.7 billion and lower default-related staffing and other default-related servicing expenses. Excluding litigation, noninterest expense declined $526 million, or 37 percent, to $902 million in the second quarter of 2015, as the number of 60+ days delinquent first mortgage loans serviced by LAS declined 50 percent to 132,000 loans(C).

1 All Other consists of ALM activities, equity investments, the international consumer card business, liquidating businesses, residual expense allocations and other. ALM activities encompass residential mortgage securities, interest rate and foreign currency risk management activities including the residual net interest income allocation, the impact of certain allocation methodologies and accounting hedge ineffectiveness. Beginning with new originations in 2014, we retain certain residential mortgages in Consumer Banking, consistent with where the overall relationship is managed; previously such mortgages were in All Other. Additionally, certain residential mortgage loans that are managed by Legacy Assets & Servicing are held in All Other. The results of certain ALM activities are allocated to our business segments. Equity investments include our merchant services joint venture as well as Global Principal Investments which is comprised of a portfolio of equity, real estate and other alternative investments.
2 Revenue includes equity investment income of $11 million, $1 million and $95 million for the three months ended June 30, 2015, March 31, 2015 and June 30, 2014, respectively, and gains on sales of debt securities of $162 million, $263 million and $382 million for the three months ended June 30, 2015, March 31, 2015 and June 30, 2014, respectively.

 

All Other reported net income of $637 million in the second quarter of 2015, compared to $125 million for the same period a year ago.

 

Net interest income increased $875 million from the year-ago quarter, driven by the positive impact of market-related adjustments mentioned above on page 3. Noninterest income rose slightly from the year-ago quarter, reflecting higher gains on the sales of consumer real estate loans, offset by declines in equity investment income and lower gains on sales of debt securities in the second quarter of 2015.

 

The provision for credit losses increased $267 million from the second quarter of 2014 to $19 million, driven primarily by lower recoveries on nonperforming loan sales.

 

Noninterest expense declined $60 million primarily as a result of lower personnel costs compared with the year-ago quarter.

4 Allowance for loan and lease losses ratio is 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 accounted for under the fair value option.

 

Credit quality continued to improve in the second quarter of 2015 with adjusted net charge-offs declining across most major portfolios when compared to the year-ago quarter. The balance of 30+ days performing delinquent loans, excluding fully insured loans, declined across all consumer portfolios from the year-ago quarter, remaining at record low levels in the U.S. credit card portfolio. Additionally, nonperforming loans, leases and foreclosed properties were down 24 percent from the year-ago period.

 

Net charge-offs were $1.1 billion in the second quarter of 2015, compared to $1.2 billion in the first quarter of 2015 and $1.1 billion in the second quarter of 2014. Adjusted for losses associated with the August 2014 DoJ settlement (previously reserved for) and recoveries from nonperforming loan sales, net charge-offs declined $329 million, or 26 percent, from the second quarter of 2014 to $929 million with the adjusted net charge-off ratio falling to 0.43 percent in the second quarter of 2015 from 0.56 percent in the year-ago quarter(D).

 

The provision for credit losses increased to $780 million in the second quarter of 2015 from $411 million in the second quarter of 2014 as the company continued to release reserves but at a slower pace than in the year-ago quarter and had a lower level of loan sale recoveries. During the second quarter of 2015, the reserve release was $288 million which includes the utilization of previously accrued DoJ reserves, compared to a reserve release of $662 million in the second quarter of 2014.

 

The allowance for loan and lease losses to annualized net charge-off coverage ratio was 3.05 times in the second quarter of 2015, compared with 3.67 times in the second quarter of 2014. The allowance for loan and lease losses to annualized net charge-off coverage ratio, excluding the impact of DoJ and recoveries on nonperforming loan sales, was 3.51 times in the second quarter of 2015, compared with 3.13 times in the second quarter of 2014(D). Nonperforming loans, leases and foreclosed properties were $11.6 billion at June 30, 2015, a decrease from $12.1 billion at March 31, 2015 and $15.3 billion at June 30, 2014.

 

Within the commercial loan portfolio, reservable criticized loans increased 7 percent from the year-ago quarter due to certain downgrades in the company’s oil and gas portfolio. However, the reservable criticized rate is still below pre-financial crisis levels.

The Common equity tier 1 capital ratio under the Basel 3 Standardized Transition approach was 11.2 percent at June 30, 2015 and 11.1 percent at March 31, 2015.

 

While the Basel 3 fully phased-in Standardized and fully phased-in Advanced approaches do not go into effect until 2018, the company is providing the following estimates for comparative purposes.

 

  • The estimated Common equity tier 1 capital ratio under the Basel 3 Standardized approach on a fully phased-in basis was 10.3 percent at both June 30, 2015 and March 31, 2015(E).
  • The estimated Common equity tier 1 capital ratio under the Basel 3 Advanced approaches on a fully phased-in basis was 10.4 percent at June 30, 2015 and 10.1 percent at March 31, 2015(E).

As previously disclosed, U.S. banking regulators have requested modifications to certain wholesale (e.g., commercial) and other credit models to exit parallel run, which is estimated to negatively impact the Common equity tier 1 capital ratio. If the requested modifications to these models were included, the estimated Common equity tier 1 capital ratio under the Basel 3 Advanced approaches on a fully phased-in basis would be approximately 9.3 percent at June 30, 2015. The company is currently working with the U.S. banking regulators in order to exit parallel run.

 

At June 30, 2015, the estimated supplementary leverage ratio (SLR)(N) for the Bank Holding Company was approximately 6.3 percent, which exceeds the 5.0 percent minimum for bank holding companies, and the estimated SLR for the company’s primary banking entity was approximately 7.0 percent at June 30, 2015, which exceeds the 6.0 percent “well capitalized” level.

 

At June 30, 2015, Global Excess Liquidity Sources totaled $484 billion, compared to $478 billion at March 31, 2015 and $431 billion at June 30, 2014(F). Time-to-required funding was 40 months at June 30, 2015, compared to 37 months at March 31, 2015 and 38 months at June 30, 2014(F). The Consolidated Liquidity Coverage Ratio at June 30, 2015 exceeds the fully phased-in 2017 minimum requirement(O).

 

Period-end common shares issued and outstanding were 10.47 billion at June 30, 2015 and 10.52 billion at both March 31, 2015 and June 30, 2014. The company repurchased a total of $775 million in common stock during the second quarter of 2015 at an average price of $15.93 per share.

 

Tangible book value per share(G) was $15.02 at June 30, 2015, compared to $14.79 at March 31, 2015 and $14.24 at June 30, 2014. Book value per share was $21.91 at June 30, 2015, compared to $21.66 at March 31, 2015 and $21.16 at June 30, 2014.

End Notes

 

(A) Sales and trading revenue, excluding net DVA, is a non-GAAP financial measure. Net DVA gains were $102 million and $69 million for the three months ended June 30, 2015 and 2014, respectively.

 

(B) Noninterest expense, excluding litigation expense, is a non-GAAP financial measure. Noninterest expense on a GAAP basis was $13.8 billion, $15.7 billion and $18.5 billion for the three months ended June 30, 2015, March 31, 2015 and June 30, 2014, respectively. Noninterest expense, excluding litigation expense, was $13.6 billion, $15.3 billion and $14.6 billion for the three months ended June 30, 2015, March 31, 2015 and June 30, 2014, respectively. Litigation expense was $0.2 billion, $0.4 billion and $4.0 billion for the three months ended June 30, 2015, March 31, 2015 and June 30, 2014, respectively. The first quarter of 2015 also included $1.0 billion in annual retirement-eligible incentive costs.

 

(C) Legacy Assets and Servicing (LAS) noninterest expense, excluding litigation, is a non-GAAP financial measure. LAS noninterest expense was $961 million, $1.2 billion and $5.2 billion for the three months ended June 30, 2015, March 31, 2015 and June 30, 2014, respectively. LAS litigation expense was $59 million, $179 million and $3.8 billion in the three months ended June 30, 2015, March 31, 2015 and June 30, 2014, respectively.

 

(D) Net charge-offs adjusted for the impact of the DoJ settlement of ($166) million, ($230) million and $0 previously reserved for and recoveries from nonperforming loan sales of $27 million, $40 million and $185 million for the three months ended June 30, 2015, March 31, 2015 and June 30, 2014 are non-GAAP financial measures. On a GAAP basis, net charge-offs were $1.1 billion and the net charge-off ratio was 0.49 percent for the three months ended June 30, 2015, $1.2 billion and 0.56 percent for the three months ended March 31, 2015 and $1.1 billion and 0.48 percent for the three months ended June 30, 2014.

 

(E) Basel 3 common equity tier 1 capital and risk-weighted assets on a fully phased-in basis are non-GAAP financial measures. For reconciliation to GAAP financial measures, refer to page 18 of this press release. On January 1, 2014, the Basel 3 rules became effective, subject to transition provisions primarily related to regulatory deductions and adjustments impacting Common Equity Tier 1 (CET1) capital and Tier 1 capital. Basel 3 Advanced approaches estimates assume approval by U.S. banking regulators of our internal analytical models, including approval of the internal models methodology, but do not include the benefit of the removal of the surcharge applicable to the comprehensive risk measure. Our estimates under the Basel 3 Advanced approaches may be refined over time as a result of further rulemaking or clarification by U.S. banking regulators or as our understanding and interpretation of the rules evolve. The U.S. banking regulators have requested modifications to certain internal analytical models including the wholesale (e.g., commercial) and other credit models which would increase our risk-weighted assets and, as a result, negatively impact our capital ratios. If the requested modifications to these models were included, the estimated Common equity tier 1 capital ratio under the Basel 3 Advanced approaches on a fully phased-in basis would be approximately 9.3 percent at June 30, 2015. The company is currently working with the U.S. banking regulators in order to exit parallel run.

 

(F) Global Excess Liquidity Sources include cash and high-quality, liquid, unencumbered securities, limited to U.S. government securities, U.S. agency securities, U.S. agency MBS, and a select group of non-U.S. government and supranational securities, and are readily available to meet funding requirements as they arise. It does not include Federal Reserve Discount Window or Federal Home Loan Bank borrowing capacity. Transfers of liquidity from the bank or other regulated entities are subject to certain regulatory restrictions. Time-to-required funding is a debt coverage measure and is expressed as the number of months unsecured holding company obligations of Bank of America Corporation can be met using only its Global Excess Liquidity Sources without issuing debt or sourcing additional liquidity. We define unsecured contractual obligations for purposes of this metric as maturities of senior or subordinated debt issued or guaranteed by Bank of America Corporation. We have included in the amount of unsecured contractual obligations the $8.6 billion liability, including estimated costs, for settlements, primarily for the previously announced BNY Mellon private-label securitization settlement.

 

(G) Tangible book value per share of common stock is a non-GAAP financial measure. Other companies may define or calculate this measure differently. Book value per share was $21.91 at June 30, 2015, compared to $21.66 at March 31, 2015 and $21.16 at June 30, 2014. For more information, refer to pages 22-24 of this press release.

 

(H) Return on average tangible common equity is a non-GAAP financial measure. We believe the use of this non-GAAP financial measure provides additional clarity in assessing the results of the Corporation. Other companies may define or calculate this measure differently. Return on average common equity was 8.75 percent in the second quarter of 2015.

 

(I) Fully taxable-equivalent (FTE) basis is a non-GAAP financial measure. For reconciliation to GAAP financial measures, refer to pages 22-24 of this press release. Net interest income on a GAAP basis was $10.5 billion, $9.5 billion and $10.0 billion for the three months ended June 30, 2015, March 31, 2015 and June 30, 2014, respectively. Net interest income on an FTE basis excluding market-related adjustments represents a non-GAAP financial measure. Market-related adjustments of premium amortization expense and hedge ineffectiveness were $0.7 billion, ($0.5) billion, and ($0.2) billion for the three months ended June 30, 2015, March 31, 2015 and June 30, 2014, respectively. Total revenue, net of interest expense, on a GAAP basis was $22.1 billion, $21.2 billion and $21.7 billion for the three months ended June 30, 2015, March 31, 2015 and June 30, 2014, respectively.

 

(J) Rankings per Dealogic as of July 6, 2015 for the quarter ended June 30, 2015.

 

(K) Equities sales and trading revenue, excluding net DVA, is a non-GAAP financial measure. Equities net DVA gains were $20 million and $13 million for the three months ended June 30, 2015 and 2014.

 

(L) Global Markets revenue, excluding net DVA, is a non-GAAP financial measure. Net DVA gains were $102 million and $69 million for the three months ended June 30, 2015 and 2014, respectively.

 

(M) FICC sales and trading revenue, excluding net DVA, is a non-GAAP financial measure. FICC net DVA gains were $82 million and $56 million for the three months ended June 30, 2015 and June 30, 2014, respectively.

 

(N) The supplementary leverage ratio is based on estimates from our current understanding of finalized rules issued by banking regulators on September 3, 2014. The estimated ratio is measured using quarter-end Tier 1 capital, as the numerator, calculated under Basel 3 on a fully phased-in basis. The denominator is supplementary leverage exposure based on the daily average of the sum of on-balance sheet exposures less permitted Tier 1 deductions, as well as the simple average of certain off-balance sheet exposures, as of the end of each month in a quarter. Off-balance sheet exposures include lending commitments, letters of credit, OTC derivatives, repo-style transactions and margin loan commitments.

 

(O) The Liquidity Coverage Ratio (LCR) estimates are based on our current understanding of the final U.S. LCR rules which were issued on September 3, 2014.

(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.
(5)Common equity tier 1 capital ratios at March 31, 2015 and June 30, 2015 reflect the migration of the risk-weighted assets calculation from the general risk-based approach to the Basel 3 Standardized approach, and Common equity tier 1 capital includes the 2015 phase-in of regulatory capital transition provisions.
(6)Tangible equity ratio equals period-end tangible shareholders’ equity divided by period-end tangible assets. Tangible common equity ratio 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.
(7)Basel 3 Common equity tier 1 capital and risk-weighted assets on a fully phased-in basis are non-GAAP financial measures. For reconciliations to GAAP financial measures, see above. The Corporation’s fully phased-in Basel 3 estimates are based on its current understanding of the Standardized and Advanced approaches under the Basel 3 rules. Under the Basel 3 Advanced approaches, risk-weighted assets are determined primarily for market risk and credit risk, similar to the Standardized approach, but also incorporate operational risk and a credit valuation adjustment component. Market risk capital measurements are consistent with the Standardized approach, except for securitization exposures, where the Supervisory Formula Approach is also permitted. Credit risk exposures are measured using internal ratings-based models to determine the applicable risk weight by estimating the probability of default, loss given default and, in certain instances, exposure at default. The internal analytical models primarily rely on internal historical default and loss experience. The calculations under Basel 3 require management to make estimates, assumptions and interpretations, including the probability of future events based on historical experience. Actual results could differ from those estimates and assumptions. These estimates assume approval by U.S. banking regulators of our internal analytical models, including approval of the internal models methodology, but do not include the benefit of the removal of the surcharge applicable to the comprehensive risk measure. Our estimates under the Basel 3 Advanced approaches may be refined over time as a result of further rulemaking or clarification by U.S. banking regulators or as our understanding and interpretation of the rules evolve. The U.S. banking regulators have requested modifications to certain internal analytical models including the wholesale (e.g., commercial) and other credit models which would increase our risk-weighted assets and, as a result, negatively impact our capital ratios. If the requested modifications to these models were included, the estimated Common equity tier 1 capital ratio under the Basel 3 Advanced approaches on a fully phased-in basis would be approximately 9.3 percent at June 30, 2015. The Corporation is currently working with the U.S. banking regulators in order to exit parallel run.

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. 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. Return on average tangible shareholders’ equity measures the Corporation’s earnings contribution as a percentage of adjusted average total shareholders’ equity. The tangible equity ratio represents 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. 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 periodically reviews capital allocated to its businesses and allocates capital annually during the strategic and capital planning processes. We utilize a methodology that considers the effect of regulatory capital requirements in addition to internal risk-based 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. Return on average allocated capital is calculated as net income, adjusted for cost of funds and earnings credits and certain expenses related to intangibles, divided by average allocated capital. Allocated capital and the related return both represent non-GAAP financial measures. Allocated capital is reviewed periodically and refinements are made based on multiple considerations that include, but are not limited to, risk-weighted assets measured under Basel 3 Standardized and Advanced approaches, business segment exposures and risk profile, and strategic plans. As part of this process, in 2015, the Corporation adjusted the amount of capital being allocated to its business segments, primarily Legacy Assets & Servicing.

 

See the tables below and on pages 23-24 for reconciliations of these non-GAAP financial measures to financial measures defined by GAAP for the six months ended June 30, 2015 and 2014 and the three months ended June 30, 2015, March 31, 2015 and June 30, 2014. 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.
