Huntington Bancshares Incorporated Reports Net Income Of $178 Million, Or $0.20 Per Common Share, For The 2013 Third Quarter, Up 6% From The Year-Ago Quarter And Up 18% From The Prior Quarter

Huntington Bancshares Incorporated (NASDAQ: HBAN; www.huntington.com) reported 2013 third quarter net income of $178 million, an increase of $11 million, or 6%, from the 2012 third quarter and an increase of $28 million, or 18%, from the 2013 second quarter. Earnings per common share were $0.20, an increase of $0.01 and $0.03 from the year-ago and prior quarters, respectively.

The board of directors declared a quarterly cash dividend on its common stock of $0.05 per common share. The dividend is payable January 2, 2014, to shareholders of record on December 19, 2013.

Strategies Continue to Drive Business Performance

“Huntington’s third-quarter results continue to demonstrate that our uniquely positioned products and services are driving robust organic customer acquisition across our commercial and consumer customer base while delivering stable returns to shareholders,” said Stephen D. Steinour, chairman, president and CEO of Huntington Bank. “Through our disciplined investments in fee-income businesses in conjunction with prudent expense management, we have been able to deliver modest positive operating leverage for the first nine months of the year.”

“There is much to recognize in the quarter, not the least of which was our successful consumer credit card launch. The third quarter was a time of continuing household growth, particularly within our in-store branches, and marked a return to stability of our commercial real estate loan portfolio,” said Steinour. “Our performance has benefited from ongoing improvement within our core Midwestern economies. We also made progress in managing expenses, including one-time savings attributable to pension curtailment, rightsizing of some investments, and the consolidation of 22 branch locations. Overall, it was a solid quarter positioning Huntington for a good finish for 2013.”

Significant Items Influencing Financial Performance Comparisons

From time-to-time, revenue, expenses, or taxes are impacted by items we judge to be outside of ordinary banking activities and/or by items that, while they may be associated with ordinary banking activities, are so unusually large that we believe their outsized impact at that time to be infrequent or short term in nature. We believe the disclosure of such “Significant Items,” when appropriate, aids analysts/investors in better understanding performance trends. (See Significant Items under the Basis of Presentation for a full discussion.)

Table 2 highlights the Significant Items impacting reported results for the prior five quarters. This quarter contained two significant items relating to the pension curtailment and expense related to consolidation of 22 branches, severance, and facilities optimization.

Fully-taxable equivalent net interest income decreased $4 million, or 1%, from the 2012 third quarter. This reflected the impact of a 4 basis point decrease in the fully-taxable equivalent net interest margin (NIM) to 3.34%, as average earning assets were essentially unchanged with 5% loan growth offset by the planned reduction in investment securities. The primary items impacting the decrease in the NIM were:

  • 16 basis point negative impact from the mix and yield of earning assets primarily reflecting a decrease in consumer loan yields.

Partially offset by:

  • 15 basis point positive impact from the mix and yield of deposits reflecting the strategic focus on changing the funding sources from higher rate time deposits to no-cost demand deposits and low cost money market deposits.

Compared to the 2013 second quarter, fully-taxable equivalent net interest income was unchanged, reflecting a $0.1 billion increase in average earnings assets as well as an additional day in the quarter, primarily offset by a 4 basis point decrease in NIM. The primary items affecting the NIM were a 4 basis point negative impact from the mix and yield of earning assets and the 3 basis point negative impact of the $750 million of debt issued during the quarter, partially offset by the 3 basis point benefit from lower cost deposits and increased equity.
