Bank Of America Reports Third-Quarter 2013 Net Income Of $2.5 Billion, Or $0.20 Per Diluted Share, On Revenue Of $21.7 Billion(A)

Bank of America Corporation today reported net income rose to $2.5 billion in the third quarter of 2013 from $340 million in the year-ago quarter. Earnings per diluted share increased to $0.20 from $0.00 in the third quarter of 2012. For the nine months ended September 30, 2013, net income increased to $8.0 billion from $3.5 billion in the same period a year ago.

Relative to the year-ago quarter, the results for the third quarter of 2013 were driven by reduced negative credit valuation adjustments on the company's credit spreads and increases in equity investment income, net interest income and investment and brokerage income. The company also benefited from improved credit quality and lower expenses. These factors were partially offset by lower mortgage banking income and the negative impact from remeasuring certain deferred tax assets due to the U.K. corporate income tax rate reduction enacted in July 2013.

"This quarter, we saw good loan growth, improved credit quality and record deposit balances. Our customers and clients continue to do more business with us," said Chief Executive Officer Brian Moynihan. "The economy and business climate will improve even more quickly as conditions normalize, and we are well positioned to benefit from that."

"We continued to make good progress on our expense initiatives, and we further strengthened our capital and leverage ratios," said Chief Financial Officer Bruce Thompson.

1 Fully taxable-equivalent (FTE) basis is a non-GAAP financial measure. For reconciliations to GAAP financial measures, refer to pages 22-24 of this press release. Net interest income on a GAAP basis was $10.3 billion, $10.5 billion and $9.9 billion for the three months ended September 30, 2013, June 30, 2013 and September 30, 2012, respectively. Total revenue, net of interest expense, on a GAAP basis was $21.5 billion, $22.7 billion and $20.4 billion for the three months ended September 30, 2013, June 30, 2013 and September 30, 2012, respectively.

2 Total revenue, net of interest expense, on an FTE basis excluding debit valuation adjustments (DVA) and fair value option (FVO) adjustments is a non-GAAP financial measure. DVA gains (losses) were $(292) million, $39 million and $(583) million for the three months ended September 30, 2013, June 30, 2013 and September 30, 2012, respectively. Valuation gains (losses) related to FVO were $(152) million, $10 million and $(1.3) billion for the three months ended September 30, 2013, June 30, 2013 and September 30, 2012, respectively.

Revenue, net of interest expense, on an FTE basis A rose $1.1 billion from the third quarter of 2012 to $21.7 billion. Excluding the impact of debit valuation adjustments (DVA) and fair value option (FVO) adjustments, revenue was $22.2 billion in the third quarter of 2013, compared to $22.5 billion in the third quarter of 2012.

Net interest income, on an FTE basis, totaled $10.5 billion in the third quarter of 2013, compared to $10.2 billion in the third quarter of 2012 A. The improvement was driven by reductions in long-term debt balances, less negative market-related premium amortization, lower rates paid on deposits, and higher commercial loan balances. These factors were partially offset by lower consumer loan balances and lower asset yields. Net interest margin was 2.44 percent in the third quarter of 2013, compared to 2.32 percent in the third quarter of 2012.

Noninterest income increased $774 million from the year-ago quarter, led by lower negative FVO adjustments, higher equity investment income primarily related to the gain on the sale of the company's remaining China Construction Bank (CCB) shares in the current quarter, and improved investment and brokerage income. These improvements were partially offset by a $1.4 billion decrease in mortgage banking income from the third quarter of 2012.
