Bank Of America Reports Fourth-quarter 2013 Net Income Of $3.4 Billion, Or $0.29 Per Diluted Share, On Revenue Of $21.7 Billion(A)

Stocks in this article: BAC

Revenue of $7.5 billion increased $96 million from the year-ago quarter, driven by higher net interest income. The provision for credit losses decreased $651 million from the year-ago quarter to $427 million, reflecting continued improvement in credit quality. Noninterest expense decreased $132 million from the year-ago quarter to $4.0 billion, primarily due to lower personnel expense and lower FDIC expense, partially offset by higher litigation expense.
