Bank Of America Reports Fourth-Quarter 2012 Net Income Of $0.7 Billion, Or $0.03 Per Diluted Share

Stocks in this article: BAC

Bank of America Corporation today reported net income of $0.7 billion, or $0.03 per diluted share, for the fourth quarter of 2012, compared to $2.0 billion, or $0.15 per diluted share in the year-ago period. Revenue, net of interest expense, on a fully taxable-equivalent (FTE) B basis was $18.9 billion.

Fourth-quarter 2012 revenue, net of interest expense, on an FTE basis, excluding $0.7 billion of debit valuation and fair value option adjustments, was $19.6 billion; excluding $3.0 billion of provisions for representations and warranties and obligations related to mortgage insurance rescissions related to settlement agreements with the Federal National Mortgage Association (Fannie Mae) revenue net of interest expense, on an FTE basis, was $22.6 billion B.

For the full year, the company reported net income of $4.2 billion, or $0.25 per diluted share, compared to $1.4 billion, or $0.01 per diluted share in 2011.

“We enter 2013 strong and well positioned for further growth,” said Chief Executive Officer Brian Moynihan. “Double-digit growth since last year in mortgage production, commercial lending, and Global Markets revenue demonstrates the power of deeper customer and client relationships as we intensify the focus on connecting all our capabilities.”

As previously announced, financial results in the fourth quarter of 2012 were negatively impacted by a provision of $2.7 billion related to the settlements with Fannie Mae with respect to representations and warranties and compensatory fees; other provision items of $2.5 billion which included a $1.1 billion provision for the Independent Foreclosure Review (IFR) acceleration agreement, total litigation expense of $0.9 billion and a $0.5 billion provision for obligations related to mortgage insurance rescissions; and $0.7 billion of negative debit valuation adjustments (DVA) and fair value option (FVO) adjustments due to improvement in the company's credit spreads. These items were partially offset by a net income tax benefit of $1.3 billion primarily due to the recognition of foreign tax credits of certain non-U.S. subsidiaries; a gain of $0.4 billion on the previously announced sale of the company's 49-percent stake in Mitsubishi UFJ Merrill Lynch PB Securities; and a positive valuation adjustment on mortgage servicing rights (MSR) of $0.3 billion related to the previously announced servicing sales.
