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

Stocks in this article: FITB

Fourth quarter 2012 noninterest income results included a $19 million negative valuation adjustment on the Vantiv warrant, compared with a $16 million negative valuation adjustment in the third quarter of 2012 and a $10 million positive valuation adjustment on the Vantiv warrant and put instruments in the fourth quarter of 2011. Current quarter’s results also included a $15 million charge related to the valuation of the total return swap entered into as part of the 2009 sale of Visa, Inc. Class B shares. Negative valuation adjustments on this swap were $1 million in the third quarter of 2012 and $54 million in the fourth quarter of 2011. Third quarter 2012 results also included $13 million in gains recognized on the sale of certain Fifth Third funds. Excluding these items, the gain from the sale of Vantiv shares, and investment securities gains in all periods, noninterest income of $755 million increased $82 million, or 12 percent, from the previous quarter and increased $166 million, or 28 percent, from the fourth quarter of 2011.

Service charges on deposits of $134 million increased 5 percent from the third quarter and decreased 1 percent compared with the same quarter last year. Retail service charges grew 10 percent sequentially largely due to a seasonal increase in consumer overdrafts as well as the initial benefit of the transition to our new and simplified deposit product offerings. Compared with the fourth quarter of 2011, retail service charges decreased 11 percent primarily due to changes in our overdraft policies during 2012. Commercial service charges increased 2 percent sequentially and 6 percent from a year ago primarily as a result of higher treasury management fees.

Corporate banking revenue of $114 million increased 13 percent from the third quarter of 2012 driven by higher syndication fees, business lending fees, and derivative fees, which benefited from higher activity in anticipation of changes to tax rules. Corporate banking revenue increased 38 percent from the same period last year driven by increased syndication fees and business lending fees as a result our investments in our capital markets and treasury management capabilities, which are creating more lead opportunities and increased production.
