Fifth Third Announces 2012 Earnings Per Share Of $1.66, Up 41 Percent From 2011

“These quarterly results capped a solidly profitable year in which Fifth Third generated the second highest level of net income in our Company’s history and pre-provision net revenue of $2.5 billion. Loans increased nearly $5 billion on an end of period basis. We produced double-digit growth in commercial and industrial loans and residential mortgage loan originations due to higher demand and low interest rates. Average core deposits increased 5 percent with a continued favorable mix shift to lower cost deposits.

“Credit trends continued to be favorable, with full year net charge-offs down 40 percent from 2011 and nonperforming assets declining 29 percent, both the lowest levels reported since 2007. At year end, total delinquencies were at their lowest level since the second quarter of 2004. The improvement in credit trends resulted in a $400 million reduction in loan loss reserves during the year, although reserve levels and coverage ratios remain strong at 2.16 percent of loans and 180 percent of nonperforming portfolio loans.

“Pursuant to our capital plan, we increased the return of capital to shareholders in 2012, with our recent increase of the quarterly common stock dividend to $0.10 per share and common stock repurchases of approximately $650 million during the year, including $175 million related to Vantiv gains. Despite these actions, our strong common equity capital ratios increased for the year. Our capital plan included the potential repurchase of an additional $125 million in the first quarter of 2013. Given our capacity for internal capital generation, we would expect to continue to return capital to shareholders in a responsible manner, absent unforeseen developments.”

Net interest income of $903 million on a fully taxable equivalent basis decreased $4 million from the third quarter. The decline in net interest income was driven by the effect of approximately $10 million in non-recurring benefits recorded in the third quarter. Otherwise, net interest income benefited from a decline in interest expense driven by higher demand deposit balances and continued runoff in consumer CD balances; a $2 million reduction in long-term debt expense due to the FHLB debt termination in December; and a $5 million reduction in long-term debt expense due to the full quarter impact of the TruPS redemption in the third quarter. The benefit of net loan growth on interest income was offset by a decline in interest income attributable to loan repricing, primarily in the C&I, auto, and residential mortgage portfolios, as well as lower reinvestment rates on the securities portfolio.
