(3) Tangible common shareholders' equity equals total shareholders' equity less preferred stock, goodwill and identifiable intangible assets. Tangible book value per common share is computed by dividing tangible common shareholders’ equity by the number of common shares outstanding, including restricted stock units granted to employees with no future service requirements. Management believes that tangible common shareholders’ equity and tangible book value per common share are meaningful because they are measures that the firm and investors use to assess capital adequacy. Tangible common shareholders’ equity and tangible book value per common share are non-GAAP measures and may not be comparable to similar non-GAAP measures used by other companies. The table below presents the reconciliation of total shareholders' equity to tangible common shareholders' equity:

These amounts represent preliminary estimates as of the date of this earnings release and may be revised in the firm’s Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the period ended June 30, 2012 (June 30, 2012 Form 10-Q). For a further discussion of the firm's global core excess liquidity pool, see “Liquidity Risk Management” in Part I, Item 2 “Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations” in the firm's Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the period ended March 31, 2012 (March 31, 2012 Form 10-Q).

The firm’s risk-weighted assets under the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System capital adequacy regulations currently applicable to bank holding companies (Basel 1) were approximately $429 billion as of June 30, 2012. This ratio represents a preliminary estimate as of the date of this earnings release and may be revised in the firm’s June 30, 2012 Form 10-Q.

Management believes that the Tier 1 common ratio is meaningful because it is one of the measures that the firm and investors use to assess capital adequacy. The Tier 1 common ratio is a non-GAAP measure and may not be comparable to similar non-GAAP measures used by other companies. This ratio represents a preliminary estimate as of the date of this earnings release and may be revised in the firm’s June 30, 2012 Form 10-Q.

Unvested share-based payment awards that have non-forfeitable rights to dividends or dividend equivalents are treated as a separate class of securities in calculating earnings per common share. The impact of applying this methodology was a reduction in basic earnings per common share of $0.02, $0.01 and $0.02 for the three months ended June 30, 2012, March 31, 2012 and June 30, 2011, respectively, and $0.03 and $0.04 for the six months ended June 30, 2012 and June 30, 2011, respectively.

VaR is the potential loss in value of the firm’s inventory positions due to adverse market movements over a one-day time horizon with a 95% confidence level.

For a further discussion of VaR and the diversification effect, see “Market Risk Management” in Part I, Item 2 “Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations” in the firm’s March 31, 2012 Form 10-Q.
