BOK Financial Corporation reported net income of $316.6 million or $4.59 per diluted share for the year ended December 31, 2013. Net income for the year ended December 31, 2012 was $351.2 million or $5.13 per diluted share.
Net income for fourth quarter of 2013 totaled $73.0 million or $1.06 per diluted share compared to net income of $75.7 million or $1.10 per diluted share for the third quarter of 2013.
Steven Bradshaw, President and Chief Executive Officer, stated, “Many of the factors that impacted earnings throughout 2013 persisted into the fourth quarter, including slower mortgage volumes and increased expenses to meet regulatory initiatives. However, loan growth accelerated nicely in the fourth quarter, led by commercial real estate and healthcare lending, and our capital strength and the credit quality of our loan portfolio remain at industry-leading levels.”
Bradshaw continued, “All told, 2013 was a challenging year. While we remained solidly profitable, it was the first year since 2008 that we were unable to grow earnings. Consistent earnings growth is the key to building long term shareholder value, and we don’t make excuses. Accordingly, our newly-constituted executive leadership team is executing on a plan to accelerate revenue growth, enhance our customer experience, and control internal expense growth while meeting heightened regulatory expectations and providing a great place to work for employees. These five key objectives will set the foundation for long-term growth in earnings and shareholder value.”Highlights of fourth quarter of 2013 included:
- Net interest revenue totaled $166.2 million for the fourth quarter of 2013 compared to $167.9 million for the third quarter of 2013. Net interest margin was 2.74% for the fourth quarter of 2013, and 2.75% for the third quarter of 2013.
