(*) Presented on a managed basis. See notes on page 14 for further explanation of managed basis. Net revenue on a U.S. GAAP basis totaled $23,653 million, $25,146 million, and $21,471 million for the fourth quarter of 2012, third quarter of 2012, and fourth quarter of 2011, respectively.

Discussion of Results:

Net income was $5.7 billion, up $2.0 billion, or 53%, from the prior year. The increase in earnings was driven by higher net revenue and lower provision for credit losses, partially offset by higher noninterest expense.

Net revenue was $24.4 billion, up $2.2 billion, or 10%, compared with the prior year. Noninterest revenue was $13.1 billion, up $3.2 billion, or 32%, from the prior year, due to higher mortgage fees and related income, higher investment banking fees and higher principal transactions revenue. The current-quarter revenue includes a $567 million loss from DVA on certain structured and derivative liabilities resulting from the tightening of the Firm’s credit spreads. Net interest income was $11.3 billion, down $989 million, or 8%, compared with the prior year, reflecting the impact of low interest rates, as well as runoff of higher-yielding loans, faster mortgage-backed securities repayments and limited reinvestment opportunities, partially offset by lower deposit costs.
