Focused on prudent, profitable growth

Regions reported second quarter net income available to common shareholders of $284 million or $0.20 per diluted share driven by continued improvement in core business performance. Second quarter income from continuing operations was $280 million or $0.20 per diluted share compared to $185 million or $0.14 per diluted share in the first quarter. Regions reported net income of $4 million from discontinued operations, attributable to the gain on the sale of Morgan Keegan. In connection with the repayment of its Series A preferred stock, the company accelerated the accretion of the discount and coupled with the final preferred stock dividends, reduced net income available to common shareholders by $71 million, or $0.05 per diluted share. 1

Pre-tax pre-provision income 1 totaled $503 million as compared to $438 million in the prior quarter. This improvement of 15 percent linked quarter reflected an increase in net interest income and a decline in non-interest expenses partially offset by a decline in non-interest revenue.

“We continued to make incremental progress on many key fronts and are pleased with the improvement of our financial performance despite considerable economic and political uncertainty, and an uneven economic recovery,” said Grayson Hall, president and chief executive officer. “By focusing on initiatives that we can control, we continue to drive sustainable and prudent growth across our business.”
