Stocks in this article: BOKF

BOK Financial Corporation reported net income of $87.4 million or $1.27 per diluted share for the third quarter of 2012, compared to net income of $97.6 million or $1.43 per diluted share for the second quarter of 2012 and net income of $85.1 million or $1.24 per diluted share for the third quarter of 2011. A gain on the sale of common stock received in settlement of a defaulted loan and a negative provision for credit losses increased net income by $14 million or $0.21 per diluted share in the second quarter of 2012.

Net income for the nine months ended September 30, 2012 totaled $268.6 million or $3.92 per diluted share compared to $218.9 million or $3.19 per diluted share for the nine months ended September 30, 2011.

“BOK Financial's strong financial results for the third quarter continue to reflect the strength of our diversified revenue business model,” said President and CEO Stan Lybarger. “The prolonged low interest rate environment has enabled our mortgage banking professionals to assist a record number of customers in the purchase or refinance of their home. We experienced strong commercial loan growth and continued growth in our deposit base. We are also very pleased to welcome The Milestone Group to BOK Financial. The Milestone Group is a Denver-based registered investment adviser which provides wealth management services to high net worth clients in Colorado and Nebraska."
