Sallie Mae Reports Second-Quarter 2013 Financial Results

Sallie Mae (NASDAQ: SLM), formally SLM Corporation, today released second-quarter 2013 financial results that reflect significant improvements to private education loan portfolio performance and earnings-per-share contributions from previously announced asset sales. During the quarter, private education loan 90-day delinquency and charge-off rates dropped to 3.6 percent and 2.7 percent, respectively, their lowest levels since 2008. The company also announced $400 million in common share repurchase authorization.

“We are pleased with the low delinquency and default results achieved by our customers as the measures confirm the effectiveness of our underwriting standards and servicing solutions,” said Jack Remondi, president and CEO. “Our lending practices help students and families borrow responsibly, and our customized repayment assistance helps borrowers successfully manage their education loans. Both represent our conviction that we succeed only when our customers succeed.”

Mr. Remondi continued, “Much has been publicized about student debt and borrower burdens. Student lending is a very specialized business that, if undertaken properly, can help borrowers capture the economic benefits of a college degree. Our results clearly show that our products, efforts and solutions help our borrowers successfully manage, and not just postpone, their student loan payments better than anyone, and avoid the damaging effects of default.”

For the second-quarter 2013, GAAP net income was $543 million ($1.20 diluted earnings per share), compared with $292 million ($0.59 diluted earnings per share) for the year-ago quarter.

Core earnings for the quarter were $462 million ($1.02 diluted earnings per share), compared with $243 million ($0.49 diluted earnings per share) for the year-ago quarter.

The second-quarter 2013 core diluted earnings per share increase includes a $257 million gain from the sale of residual interests in FFELP loan securitization trusts, a $38 million after-tax gain from the sale of the company’s Campus Solutions business, a $42 million decline in the provision for loan losses, and an increase in net interest income before provision for loan losses of $19 million which more than offset higher operating expenses of $27 million and higher restructuring and other reorganization expenses of $21 million.
