Popular, Inc. Announces Third Quarter Financial Results

The dial-in phone number in the next to last paragraph of text should read: 1-877-415-3183 (sted 877-515-3183 or 857-244-7326).

The corrected release reads: 


Popular, Inc. (the “Corporation” or “Popular”) (NASDAQ:BPOP) reported net income of $229.1 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2013, compared to net income of $327.5 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2013.

Mr. Richard L. Carrión, Chairman of the Board and Chief Executive Officer, said: “We continue to generate strong revenues from our core businesses with a net interest margin and capital levels above peer averages. Credit metrics continue to improve, reaching new lows despite the sluggish environment on the island. As a result of our strong capital position, improved asset quality and solid financial performance, I am pleased to mention that we have filed an application to repay TARP. While we are hopeful our application will be approved, we cannot speculate on the timing or the conditionality, if any, of an approval.”

[1] Covered loans represent loans acquired in the Westernbank FDIC-assisted transaction that are covered under FDIC loss sharing agreements.
[2] During the second quarter of 2013, the Corporation discontinued the elimination of its proportionate ownership share of intercompany transactions with EVERTEC from their respective revenue and expense categories to reflect them as an equity pick-up adjustment in Other Operating Income. This results in a gross up of operating expenses with a corresponding increase in other operating income. The results of operations for all periods presented have been adjusted to reflect this change.
