Northern Trust Corporation Reports Third Quarter Net Income Of $206.5 Million, Earnings Per Common Share Of $0.84.

Northern Trust Corporation today reported third quarter net income per diluted common share of $0.84, up from $0.73 in the third quarter of 2012 and $0.78 in the second quarter of 2013. Net income was $206.5 million in the current quarter, an increase of 15% from $178.8 million in the prior year third quarter, and up 8% from $191.1 million in the prior quarter. Return on average common equity was 10.6% in the current quarter, compared to 9.6% in the prior year quarter and 10.0% in the prior quarter.

The current quarter includes a $32.6 million pre-tax gain on the sale of an office building property. Excluding the current quarter gain, net income per diluted common share, net income and return on average common equity would have been $0.76, $186.2 million, and 9.6%, respectively.

Frederick H. Waddell, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, commented, “Revenue growth in the third quarter reflects a solid increase in trust, investment and other servicing fees. Assets under custody and under management increased 10% and 13%, respectively, versus last year, reflecting our success in winning new clients and serving existing clients, as well as higher equity markets. Expenses increased as a result of the growth in our business, including recent office openings in Frankfurt, Germany and Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, and continued investment to support technology initiatives and a growing set of regulatory and compliance requirements for our clients.”

THIRD QUARTER 2013 PERFORMANCE VS. THIRD QUARTER 2012

Net income per common share in the third quarter of 2013 was $0.84 compared to $0.73 per common share in the third quarter of 2012. Net income for the current quarter was $206.5 million, up $27.7 million, or 15%, from $178.8 million in the prior year quarter.

Consolidated revenue of $1.05 billion in the current quarter was up $74.7 million, or 8%, from $972.5 million in the prior year quarter. Noninterest income, which represented 77% of revenue, increased $83.3 million, or 11%, to $810.2 million from the prior year quarter’s $726.9 million, primarily reflecting higher trust, investment and other servicing fees; other operating income; and foreign exchange trading income. Net interest income for the quarter on a fully taxable equivalent (FTE) basis decreased $12.1 million, or 5%, to $244.8 million compared to $256.9 million in the prior year quarter, primarily due to a decrease in the net interest margin.
