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

Stocks in this article: FITB

Average commercial portfolio loan and lease balances were up $788 million, or 2 percent, sequentially and increased $3.1 billion, or 7 percent, from the fourth quarter of 2011. Average C&I loans increased 4 percent sequentially and 15 percent compared with the fourth quarter of 2011. Average commercial mortgage and commercial construction loan balances combined declined 4 percent sequentially and 13 percent from the same period the previous year. Commercial line usage, on an end of period basis, was 31 percent of committed lines in the fourth quarter of 2012 compared with 32 percent in the third quarter of 2012 and 32 percent in the fourth quarter of 2011.

Average consumer portfolio loan and lease balances increased $267 million, or 1 percent, sequentially and $976 million, or 3 percent, from the fourth quarter of 2011. Average residential mortgage loans increased 2 percent sequentially, reflecting strong originations due to continued refinancing activity associated with historically low interest rates as well as the continued retention of certain shorter term residential mortgage loans. Compared with the fourth quarter of 2011, average residential mortgage loans increased 13 percent and reflected the retention of these shorter term residential mortgage loans. Home equity loan balances declined 2 percent sequentially and 6 percent year-over-year due to lower demand and production. Average auto loans increased 1 percent sequentially and increased 2 percent year-over-year.

Average loans held-for-sale balance fluctuations were primarily driven by changes in residential mortgage held-for-sale balances. Average loans held-for-sale balances of $2.2 billion increased $296 million sequentially and decreased $127 million compared with the fourth quarter of 2011, and period end loans held-for-sale of $2.9 billion increased $1.1 billion from the previous quarter and decreased $15 million from the fourth quarter of 2011.
