Northern Trust Corporation Reports Second Quarter Net Income Of $191.1 Million, Earnings Per Common Share Of $0.78

Northern Trust Corporation today reported second quarter net income per common share of $0.78, up from $0.73 in the second quarter of 2012 and $0.67 in the first quarter of 2013. Net income was $191.1 million in the current quarter, up 6% from $179.6 million in the prior year second quarter, and up 17% from $164.0 million in the prior quarter. Return on average common equity was 10.0% in the current quarter, compared to 9.9% in the prior year quarter and 8.8% in the prior quarter.

Frederick H. Waddell, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, commented, “Second quarter performance featured solid improvement in net income and earnings per common share versus last year, reflecting increased revenues and disciplined expense management. Our productivity efforts remained on track and capital levels were very strong. We continued to generate growth across our businesses with trust, investment and other servicing fees increasing 8% from a year ago. Our quarterly results led to a 10.0% return on average common equity, our best since the second quarter of 2010.”

SECOND QUARTER 2013 PERFORMANCE VS. SECOND QUARTER 2012

Net income per common share in the second quarter of 2013 was $0.78 compared to $0.73 per common share in the second quarter of 2012. Net income for the current quarter was $191.1 million compared to $179.6 million in the prior year quarter.

Consolidated revenue of $1.02 billion in the current quarter was up $32.0 million, or 3%, from $988.5 million in the prior year quarter. Noninterest income, which represented 78% of revenue, increased $66.0 million, or 9%, to $800.4 million from the prior year quarter’s $734.4 million, primarily reflecting higher trust, investment and other servicing fees and increased foreign exchange trading income. Net interest income for the quarter on a fully taxable equivalent (FTE) basis decreased $36.3 million, or 14%, to $228.0 million compared to $264.3 million in the prior year quarter, primarily due to a continued decline in the net interest margin.

Trust, investment and other servicing fees were $657.3 million in the current quarter, up $51.5 million, or 8%, from $605.8 million in the prior year quarter. The increase primarily reflects the favorable impact of equity markets on fees and new business, partially offset by higher waived fees in money market mutual funds.

Assets under custody and assets under management are the primary drivers of our trust, investment and other servicing fees. The following table provides Northern Trust’s assets under custody and assets under management by business segment.

Custody and fund administration fees, the largest component of C&IS fees, increased 9%, primarily reflecting the favorable impact of equity markets on fees and new business. C&IS investment management fees increased 3%, reflecting the favorable impact of markets and new business, partially offset by higher waived fees in money market mutual funds. Money market mutual fund fee waivers in C&IS, attributable to persistent low short-term interest rates, totaled $9.8 million in the current quarter, compared to waived fees of $7.0 million in the prior year quarter. Securities lending revenue increased slightly, reflecting higher loan volumes, partially offset by lower spreads in the current quarter.

Trust, investment and other servicing fees in Personal Financial Services (PFS) totaled $293.1 million in the current quarter, increasing $25.7 million, or 10%, from $267.4 million in the prior year quarter. The increased fees in the current quarter are primarily attributable to the favorable impact of equity markets on fees and new business, partially offset by higher waived fees in money market mutual funds. Money market mutual fund fee waivers in PFS totaled $12.9 million in the current quarter compared with $10.0 million in the prior year quarter.

Foreign exchange trading income totaled $71.3 million, up $11.9 million, or 20%, compared with $59.4 million in the prior year quarter. The current quarter increase is attributable to higher currency market volatility and trading volumes compared to the prior year quarter.

Other operating income totaled $36.3 million in the current quarter, up $2.3 million, or 6%, from $34.0 million in the prior year quarter, reflecting current quarter increases within various miscellaneous income categories.

Net interest income for the quarter on an FTE basis totaled $228.0 million, down $36.3 million, or 14%, compared to $264.3 million in the prior year quarter. The decrease reflects a continued decline in the net interest margin to 1.10% from 1.28% in the prior year quarter. The decline in the net interest margin primarily reflects lower yields on earning assets, partially offset by a lower cost of interest-related funds due to lower short-term interest rates. Average earning assets for the quarter were $83.1 billion, relatively unchanged from $83.2 billion in the prior year quarter.

The provision for credit losses was $5.0 million in both the current quarter and prior year quarter. Net charge-offs totaled $8.1 million for the current quarter resulting from $15.6 million of charge-offs and $7.5 million of recoveries, compared to $3.2 million of net charge-offs in the prior year quarter resulting from $16.2 million of charge-offs and $13.0 million of recoveries. Nonperforming loans and leases increased $26.9 million, or 11%, from the prior year quarter. Residential real estate loans and commercial real estate loans accounted for 66% and 23%, respectively, of total nonperforming loans at June 30, 2013.

C&IS custody and fund administration fees increased 5%, primarily reflecting the favorable impact of equity markets on fees and new business.

Investment management fees decreased 2%, as the favorable impact of equity markets on fees was offset by higher waived fees on money market mutual funds. Money market mutual fund fee waivers, attributable to the low short-term interest rates, totaled $9.8 million in C&IS in the current quarter, up from $8.8 million in the prior quarter.

PFS trust, investment and other servicing fees were $293.1 million, up 4% from $282.0 million in the prior quarter, primarily driven by favorable equity markets and new business. Money market mutual fund fee waivers in PFS totaled $12.9 million in the current quarter, down slightly from $13.4 million in the prior quarter.

Foreign exchange trading income increased $11.8 million, or 20%, to $71.3 million compared to $59.5 million in the prior quarter. The current quarter increase is attributable to higher currency market volatility and trading volumes.

Other operating income in the current quarter totaled $36.3 million, up $11.5 million, or 47% from $24.8 million in the prior quarter. The prior quarter included the $12.4 million write-off of certain fee receivables.

Net interest income on an FTE basis in the current quarter totaled $228.0 million, down $5.7 million, or 2%, compared to $233.7 million in the prior quarter. The decrease primarily reflects a continued decline in the net interest margin. The net interest margin decreased to 1.10% in the current quarter from 1.15% in the prior quarter, reflecting lower yields on earning assets, partially offset by a lower cost of interest-related funds. Average earning assets totaled $83.1 billion in the current quarter, up $963.7 million compared to $82.2 billion in the prior quarter.

The provision for credit losses totaled $5.0 million in both the current quarter and prior quarter. Net charge-offs totaled $8.1 million for the current quarter resulting from $15.6 million of charge-offs and $7.5 million of recoveries, compared to $8.7 million of net charge-offs in the prior quarter resulting from $12.6 million of charge-offs and $3.9 million of recoveries. Nonperforming loans and leases increased $15.0 million, or 6%, as compared to the prior quarter.

Expense for outside services totaled $136.2 million, an increase of $6.3 million, or 5%, compared to $129.9 million in the prior quarter. The current quarter increase primarily reflects higher consulting, sub-custodian and technical services expense.

Equipment and software expense totaled $92.1 million in the current quarter, up slightly from $91.4 million in the prior quarter.

Occupancy expense totaled $43.5 million, relatively unchanged from $43.2 million in the prior quarter.

Other operating expense totaled $66.8 million, a decrease of $14.0 million, or 17%. The decrease primarily reflects higher business promotion expense incurred in the prior quarter and lower charges associated with account servicing activities in the current quarter.

STOCKHOLDERS’ EQUITY

Total stockholders’ equity averaged $7.6 billion, up 5% from the prior year quarter’s average of $7.3 billion. The increase primarily reflects earnings, partially offset by dividend declarations and the repurchase of common stock pursuant to the Corporation’s share buyback program. During the three and six months ended June 30, 2013, the Corporation repurchased 281,326 shares at a cost of $15.3 million ($54.28 average price per share) and 1,684,692 shares at a cost of $89.8 million ($53.28 average price per share), respectively. The Corporation’s common stock repurchase authorization was replaced in April of 2013, pursuant to which the Corporation is authorized to purchase up to 11.7 million additional shares after June 30, 2013.

As reflected in the table below, the risk-based capital ratios of Northern Trust and its principal subsidiary bank, The Northern Trust Company, remained strong at June 30, 2013, with all ratios exceeding the U.S. regulatory requirements for classification as a “well capitalized” institution.

SUBSEQUENT EVENT

In conjunction with the planned move of its Florida headquarters in Miami, Northern Trust, together with other joint owners, completed the sale of an office building property at a price of approximately $64 million on July 15, 2013. Northern Trust expects to recognize a pre-tax gain in the third quarter of 2013 of approximately $30 million on the sale of its interests in this property.

RECONCILIATION OF REPORTED NET INTEREST INCOME TO FULLY TAXABLE EQUIVALENT

Net interest income stated on an FTE basis is a non-GAAP financial measure that facilitates the analysis of asset yields. Management believes an FTE presentation provides a clearer indication of net interest margins for comparative purposes. When adjusted to an FTE basis, yields on taxable, nontaxable, and partially taxable assets are comparable; however, the adjustment to an FTE basis has no impact on net income. The tables below present a reconciliation of interest income and net interest income prepared in accordance with GAAP to interest income and net interest income on an FTE basis.
