CHARLOTTE, N.C.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jan. 17, 2013-- Bank of America Corporation today reported net income of $0.7 billion, or $0.03 per diluted share, for the fourth quarter of 2012, compared to $2.0 billion, or $0.15 per diluted share in the year-ago period. Revenue, net of interest expense, on a fully taxable-equivalent (FTE)B basis was $18.9 billion.

Fourth-quarter 2012 revenue, net of interest expense, on an FTE basis, excluding $0.7 billion of debit valuation and fair value option adjustments, was $19.6 billion; excluding $3.0 billion of provisions for representations and warranties and obligations related to mortgage insurance rescissions related to settlement agreements with the Federal National Mortgage Association (Fannie Mae) revenue net of interest expense, on an FTE basis, was $22.6 billionB.

For the full year, the company reported net income of $4.2 billion, or $0.25 per diluted share, compared to $1.4 billion, or $0.01 per diluted share in 2011.

“We enter 2013 strong and well positioned for further growth,” said Chief Executive Officer Brian Moynihan. “Double-digit growth since last year in mortgage production, commercial lending, and Global Markets revenue demonstrates the power of deeper customer and client relationships as we intensify the focus on connecting all our capabilities.”

As previously announced, financial results in the fourth quarter of 2012 were negatively impacted by a provision of $2.7 billion related to the settlements with Fannie Mae with respect to representations and warranties and compensatory fees; other provision items of $2.5 billion which included a $1.1 billion provision for the Independent Foreclosure Review (IFR) acceleration agreement, total litigation expense of $0.9 billion and a $0.5 billion provision for obligations related to mortgage insurance rescissions; and $0.7 billion of negative debit valuation adjustments (DVA) and fair value option (FVO) adjustments due to improvement in the company's credit spreads. These items were partially offset by a net income tax benefit of $1.3 billion primarily due to the recognition of foreign tax credits of certain non-U.S. subsidiaries; a gain of $0.4 billion on the previously announced sale of the company's 49-percent stake in Mitsubishi UFJ Merrill Lynch PB Securities; and a positive valuation adjustment on mortgage servicing rights (MSR) of $0.3 billion related to the previously announced servicing sales.

The year-ago quarter included $1.3 billion of negative DVA and FVO adjustments, $1.8 billion of total litigation expense and a $0.6 billion goodwill impairment charge in the European consumer card business. In addition, the year-ago quarter included, among other significant items, a $2.9 billion pretax gain on the sale of a portion of the company's investment in China Construction Bank (CCB), a $1.2 billion gain on the exchange of trust preferred securities, and a $1.2 billion gain on the sale of debt securities.

Relative to the year-ago quarter, the results for the fourth quarter of 2012 were driven by improved credit quality across most major portfolios, increased sales and trading revenue (excluding the impact of DVAE), increased investment and brokerage income, higher investment banking fees, partially offset by an increase in consumer real estate losses, reflecting the Fannie Mae settlements and the provision for the IFR acceleration agreement. In addition, noninterest expense declined from the year-ago quarter, driven primarily by cost savings achieved through Project New BAC initiatives over the course of 2012.

"We addressed significant legacy issues in 2012 and our strengths are coming through," said Chief Financial Officer Bruce Thompson. "Capital and liquidity remain strong and credit continues to improve. Our primary focus this year is to grow revenue, manage expenses and drive core earnings growth."

Business Highlights

  • Average deposit balances increased $26.6 billion from the year-ago quarter, driven by growth in liquid products in a low-rate environment. The average rate paid on deposits declined 5 basis points to 16 basis points in the fourth quarter of 2012 from the year-ago quarter due to pricing discipline and a shift in the mix of deposits.
  • During the fourth quarter of 2012, purchase volumes per average active credit card account rose 7 percent from the year ago quarter; the number of BankAmericard Cash Rewards cards increased by nearly 24 percent in the fourth quarter of 2012 to a total of 2.1 million cards since the product was launched in the third quarter of 2011.

Financial Overview

Consumer and Business Banking net income was $1.4 billion, up $186 million, or 15 percent, from the year-ago quarter due to lower credit costs and noninterest expense, partially offset by a decrease in net interest income primarily from lower average loans and the continued low-rate environment. Noninterest income of $2.5 billion remained relatively flat.

Provision for credit losses decreased $334 million from the year-ago quarter to $963 million due to improvement in delinquencies and bankruptcies primarily within the Card Services business. Noninterest expense decreased $308 million to $4.1 billion compared to the fourth quarter of 2011 as a result of lower FDIC expense and lower operating expenses.

Business Highlights

  • Bank of America funded $22.5 billion in residential home loans and home equity loans during the fourth quarter of 2012, up 41 percent from the fourth quarter of 2011, excluding correspondent originations of $6.5 billion in the year-ago quarter. The company exited the correspondent business in late 2011.
  • The number of 60+ day delinquent first mortgage loans serviced by Legacy Assets and Servicing declined by 163,000, or 17 percent, during the fourth quarter of 2012 to 773,000 from 936,000 at the end of the third quarter of 2012 and 1.16 million at the end of the fourth quarter of 2011.

Financial Overview

Consumer Real Estate Services reported a net loss of $3.7 billion for the fourth quarter of 2012, compared to a net loss of $1.4 billion for the same period in 2011 primarily due to mortgage banking losses driven by the Fannie Mae settlements and higher expenses, partially offset by lower provision for credit losses.

Revenue decreased $2.8 billion from the fourth quarter of 2011 to $468 million in the fourth quarter of 2012, due largely to higher representations and warranties provision and lower servicing income, driven by less favorable MSR results, net of hedges. This was partially offset by higher core production income. The MSR results, net of hedges, included the previously described MSR valuation adjustment related to MSR sales.

Excluding the impact of correspondent channel originations, CRES direct originations increased 42 percent and core production revenue increased $472 million in the fourth quarter of 2012 from the year-ago quarter primarily due to higher margins on increased volume of direct originations.

Representations and warranties provision was $3.0 billion in the fourth quarter of 2012, compared to $264 million in the fourth quarter of 2011, an increase of $2.7 billion. The fourth-quarter provision included $2.5 billion for representations and warranties and provision of $0.5 billion for obligations related to mortgage insurance rescissions related to the Fannie Mae settlements.

The provision for credit losses in the fourth quarter of 2012 decreased $516 million from the year-ago quarter to $485 million, driven by improved portfolio trends in the non-purchased credit-impaired home equity portfolio and reserve reductions in the purchased credit-impaired (PCI) home equity portfolio due to the improved home price outlook.

Noninterest expense increased $1.1 billion from the fourth quarter of 2011 to $5.6 billion, primarily due to $1.1 billion of expense related to the IFR acceleration agreement. In connection with this agreement, the company agreed to a cessation of the IFR process and to make a $1.1 billion payment to a fund established for the benefit of borrowers pursuant to a plan agreed to by the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency and the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System. The company will also provide $1.8 billion in borrower assistance, including loan modifications and other foreclosure prevention actions. In addition, there was an increase in default-related servicing expenses from the year-ago quarter and an increase in mortgage-related assessments, waivers and other similar costs associated with foreclosure delays, including a provision of $260 million for compensatory fees in connection with the Fannie Mae settlements. These increases were partially offset by $800 million in lower litigation expense from the fourth quarter of 2011.

The MSR asset was $5.7 billion at December 31, 2012, up $629 million from September 30, 2012, due in part to the previously described MSR valuation adjustment related to MSR sales.

Business Highlights

  • Record net income of $578 million for the quarter and $2.2 billion for the year, up 29 percent from full-year 2011.
  • Record asset management fees of $1.6 billion for the quarter and $6.1 billion for the year.
  • Client activity was strong in 2012.

Fourth-quarter 2012 long-term AUM flows of $9.1 billion were the 14th consecutive quarter of positive flows.

Financial Overview

Global Wealth and Investment Management net income rose $306 million from the fourth quarter of 2011 to $578 million due to higher revenue and lower noninterest expense. Revenue increased 6 percent to $4.2 billion, driven by higher asset management fees due to higher market levels and long-term AUM flows, as well as higher brokerage transactional revenue. The pretax margin was 21 percent for both the fourth quarter of 2012 and full-year 2012, up from 11 percent in the year-ago quarter and 16 percent for the full-year 2011.

Noninterest expense decreased 6 percent from the year-ago quarter to $3.2 billion, due to lower FDIC expense and lower litigation and other related expenses, partially offset by higher revenue-related compensation. The provision for credit losses was $112 million which was relatively flat compared to $118 million in the year-ago quarter.

Client balances rose 7 percent to $2.17 trillion driven by higher market levels and net inflows, driven by client activity in long-term AUM, deposits and loans. Assets under management rose $62.5 billion from the fourth quarter of 2011 to $698.1 billion, driven by higher market levels and long-term AUM flows.

Business Highlights

  • BofA Merrill was ranked No. 2 globally in investment banking fees for both the fourth quarter and the full year of 2012, according to Dealogic. Based on deal volumes for the year, BofA Merrill was ranked among the top three banks in high-yield corporate debt, leveraged loans, investment-grade corporate debt, asset-backed securities and syndicated loans. Debt issuance fees of approximately $1.1 billion during the fourth quarter of 2012 were the highest since the merger between Bank of America and Merrill Lynch.
  • Period-end loan and lease balances increased $10.1 billion, or 4 percent from the year-ago quarter, to $288.3 billion at the end of the fourth quarter of 2012, with growth in the commercial and industrial and leasing portfolios.
  • Period-end deposits rose to $269.7 billion at the end of the fourth quarter of 2012 from $246.4 billion at the end of the fourth quarter of 2011.

Financial Overview

Global Banking net income of $1.4 billion was up $95 million from the year-ago quarter, as higher revenue and a decline in noninterest expense were partially offset by an increase in provision expense. Revenue of $4.3 billion was up 8 percent from the year-ago quarter, primarily due to higher investment banking fees and net interest income.

Firmwide investment banking fees of $1.6 billion, excluding self-led deals, increased $587 million, or 58 percent from the year-ago quarter, mainly due to a 84 percent increase in debt underwriting fees, a record performance since the merger between Bank of America and Merrill Lynch. Global Banking investment banking fees, excluding self-led deals, were $842 million in the fourth quarter of 2012 compared to $629 million in the year-ago quarter. Global Corporate Banking revenue of $1.4 billion and Global Commercial Banking revenue of $2.0 billion remained relatively unchanged compared to the year-ago quarter. Business Lending revenue of $1.8 billion and Treasury Services revenue of $1.6 billion remained in line with the year-ago quarter.

The provision for credit losses was $180 million in the fourth quarter of 2012, compared to $68 million in the third quarter of 2012 and a benefit of $256 million in the prior-year quarter. The increase from the prior quarter was driven primarily by the impact of regulatory guidance on consumer dealer finance loans discharged from bankruptcy and commercial loan growth. Compared to the year-ago quarter, provision expense increased primarily due to lower reserve releases as asset quality stabilized in the portfolio. Noninterest expense was $1.9 billion, down 9 percent from the year-ago quarter, primarily from lower personnel-related and operating expenses.

Financial Overview

Global Markets reported net income in the fourth quarter of 2012 of $152 million, compared to a net loss of $768 million in the year-ago quarter. Excluding DVAE losses, net income was $326 million in the fourth quarter of 2012, compared to net income of $789 million in the third quarter of 2012 (excluding the impact of the U.K. tax rate change) and a net loss of $469 million in the year-ago quarter.

Global Markets revenue increased $1.0 billion from the year-ago quarter to $2.8 billion. Excluding DVAE, revenue increased $839 million to $3.1 billion driven by higher sales and trading revenue and an increase in debt issuance activity. The current quarter included DVA losses of $276 million, compared to DVA losses of $474 million in the year-ago quarter.

Fixed Income, Currency and Commodities (FICC) sales and trading revenue, excluding DVAF, was $1.8 billion in the fourth quarter of 2012, an increase of $485 million from the year-ago quarter, driven by credit businesses which benefited from improved credit markets in Europe and in the financial sector. Equities sales and trading revenue, excluding DVAF, was $713 million, an increase of $61 million from the year-ago quarter due to increased client balances in financing and improved trading performance in derivatives.

Noninterest expense declined to $2.5 billion from $2.9 billion in the year-ago quarter, primarily driven by a decrease in personnel-related expense.

1 All Other consists of ALM activities, equity investments, liquidating businesses and other. ALM activities encompass the whole-loan residential mortgage portfolio and investment securities, interest rate and foreign currency risk management activities including the residual net interest income allocation, gains/losses on structured liabilities, and the impact of certain allocation methodologies and accounting hedge ineffectiveness. Equity Investments includes Global Principal Investments, strategic and certain other investments. Other includes certain residential mortgage and discontinued real estate loans that are managed by Legacy Assets & Servicing within CRES.

All Other reported net income of $864 million in the fourth quarter of 2012, compared to net income of $1.4 billion for the year-ago quarter, as a reduction in revenue was partially offset by lower provision for credit losses, lower noninterest expense and the income tax benefit related to the recognition of certain foreign tax credits.

The decline in revenue was primarily driven by lower equity investment income, $1.2 billion in gains related to exchanges of trust preferred securities in the year-ago quarter and a decrease of $1.0 billion in gains on the sale of debt securities from the fourth quarter of 2011. This decline was partially offset by lower negative FVO adjustments in the most recent quarter compared to a year ago. Negative FVO adjustments totaled $442 million in the fourth quarter of 2012, compared to a negative $814 million in the fourth quarter of 2011.

Equity investment income was $570 million in the fourth quarter of 2012, compared to $3.1 billion in the year-ago quarter. The fourth quarter of 2012 included a $370 million gain on the sale of our interest in the Japanese brokerage joint venture and the year-ago period included a $2.9 billion gain on the sale of a portion of the company's investment in CCB. Gains on the sale of debt securities totaled $116 million in the fourth quarter of 2012, down from $1.1 billion in the year-ago quarter.

The decrease in the provision for credit losses was driven primarily by the impact of an improved home price outlook on the discontinued real estate and residential mortgage PCI portfolios driving reserve reductions in the current quarter compared to reserve builds a year ago. Noninterest expense decreased compared to the fourth quarter of 2011 as the year-ago period included a $581 million goodwill impairment charge in the European consumer card business.

1 Fully taxable-equivalent (FTE) basis is a non-GAAP financial measure. For reconciliation to GAAP financial measures, refer to pages 25-28 of this press release. Net interest income on a GAAP basis was $10.3 billion and $10.7 billion for the three months ended December 31, 2012 and 2011, and $40.7 billion and $44.6 billion for the years ended December 31, 2012 and 2011. Total revenue, net of interest expense, on a GAAP basis, was $18.7 billion and $24.9 billion for the three months ended December 31, 2012 and 2011, and $83.3 billion and $93.5 billion for the years ended December 31, 2012 and 2011.

2 Total revenue, net of interest expense, on an FTE basis excluding DVA and FVO adjustments is a non-GAAP financial measure. DVA gains (losses) were $(277) million and $(474) million for the three months ended December 31, 2012 and 2011 and $(2.5) billion and $1.0 billion for the years ended December 31, 2012 and 2011. Valuation gains (losses) related to FVO were $(442) million and $(814) million for the three months ended December 31, 2012 and 2011, and $(5.1) billion and $3.3 billion for the years ended December 31, 2012 and 2011.

3 Excludes goodwill impairment charges of $581 million for the three months ended December 31, 2011, and $3.2 billion for the year ended December 31, 2011. Noninterest expense, excluding goodwill impairment charges, is a non-GAAP financial measure.

Revenue, net of interest expense, on an FTE basis was $18.9 billion, down from $25.1 billion in the fourth quarter of 2011, driven largely by mortgage banking losses as a result of the recently announced settlements with Fannie Mae, lower equity investment income, reduced gains on the sale of debt securities and lower other income. These decreases were partially offset by higher investment banking income and increased trading account profits.

Fourth-quarter 2012 revenue, net of interest expense, on an FTE basis, excluding $0.7 billion of debit valuation adjustments and fair value option adjustments, was $19.6 billion; excluding $3.0 billion of Fannie Mae settlement-related provisions for representations and warranties and obligations related to mortgage insurance rescissions related to settlement agreements with Fannie Mae revenue, net of interest expense, on an FTE basis was $22.6 billionB.

Net interest income, on an FTE basis, totaled $10.6 billion in the fourth quarter of 2012, compared to $10.2 billion in the third quarter of 2012 and $11.0 billion in the fourth quarter of 2011B. The decline from the year-ago quarter was due to the impact of lower consumer loan balances and the Asset and Liability Management (ALM) portfolio recouponing at lower rates, partially offset by ongoing reductions in long-term debt balances and lower rates paid on deposits. Net interest income in the fourth quarter of 2012 also included unfavorable market-related premium amortization expense of $61 million.

Net interest margin was 2.35 percent in the fourth quarter of 2012, compared to 2.32 percent in the third quarter of 2012 and 2.45 percent in the fourth quarter of 2011.

Noninterest income decreased $5.9 billion from the year-ago quarter, driven largely by mortgage banking losses as a result of Fannie Mae settlement-related provisions of $2.5 billion for representations and warranties and $0.5 billion for obligations related to mortgage insurance rescissions, and a $2.9 billion gain related to the sale of a portion of the company's investment in CCB in the year-ago quarter.

Equity investment income was down $2.5 billion from the fourth quarter of 2011, reflecting the impact of the CCB gain mentioned above. In addition, other income decreased as the year-ago quarter included $1.2 billion of gains related to liability management activities, partially offset by lower negative FVO adjustments of $442 million in the fourth quarter of 2012, compared to a negative $814 million in the fourth quarter of 2011. Results in the fourth quarter of 2012 were also impacted by DVA losses of $277 million, compared to losses of $474 million in the year-ago quarter. Gains on the sale of debt securities totaled $171 million in the fourth quarter of 2012, down from $1.2 billion in the year-ago quarter.

Noninterest expense decreased $1.2 billion compared to the year-ago quarter primarily as a result of a decrease in personnel expense as the company continues to streamline processes and achieve cost savings. Also, the year-ago period included a $581 million goodwill impairment charge. Other general operating expense in the current quarter included $1.1 billion to cease the IFR. Litigation expense was $916 million in the fourth quarter of 2012, compared to $1.8 billion in the fourth quarter of 2011.

Income tax benefit for the fourth quarter of 2012 was $2.6 billion on a $1.9 billion pretax loss and included a $1.3 billion net income tax benefit primarily from the recognition of foreign tax credits of certain non-U.S. subsidiaries. This compares to income tax expense of $441 million on $2.4 billion of pretax income in the year-ago quarter.

1 Net charge-off ratios are calculated as net charge-offs divided by average outstanding loans and leases during the period; quarterly results are annualized.

2 Nonperforming loans, leases and foreclosed properties ratios are calculated as nonperforming loans, leases and foreclosed properties divided by outstanding loans, leases and foreclosed properties at the end of the period.

3 Allowance for loan and lease losses ratios are calculated as allowance for loan and lease losses divided by loans and leases outstanding at the end of the period.

Note: Ratios do not include loans measured under the fair value option.

Credit quality continued to improve in the fourth quarter of 2012, with net charge-offs declining across nearly all major portfolios and the provision for credit losses decreasing significantly from a year ago. Additionally, 30+ day performing delinquent loans, excluding fully insured loans, declined across all major consumer portfolios, and reservable criticized balances also continued to decline, down 42 percent from the year-ago period.

Net charge-offs of $3.1 billion in the fourth quarter of 2012 decreased $1.0 billion from the third quarter of 2012 and declined $950 million from the fourth quarter of 2011. The decline from the prior quarter was due to the absence of $435 million in charge-offs related to the National Mortgage Settlement and $478 million related to the impact of a change in regulatory guidance regarding the treatment of loans discharged in bankruptcy. Excluding these impacts, the decline was driven primarily by lower delinquencies in the Card Services portfolio. The improvement from a year ago was driven by credit quality improvement across nearly all major portfolios.

The provision for credit losses increased by $430 million in the fourth quarter of 2012 to $2.2 billion compared to the third quarter of 2012 and declined $730 million from $2.9 billion in the fourth quarter of 2011. The provision for credit losses in the fourth quarter of 2012 was $900 million lower than net charge-offs, resulting in a reduction in the allowance for credit losses. This included a $430 million benefit in the PCI portfolio due to an improved home price outlook. The remaining reduction was driven primarily by improvement in bankruptcies and delinquencies across the Card Services portfolio.

The allowance for loan and lease losses to annualized net charge-off coverage ratio was 1.96 times in the fourth quarter of 2012, compared with 1.60 times in the third quarter of 2012 and 2.10 times in the fourth quarter of 2011. The increase from the third quarter of 2012 was due to the net charge-off events noted above. Excluding PCI loans, the allowance to annualized net charge-off coverage ratio was 1.51 times, 1.17 times and 1.57 times for the same periods, respectively.

Nonperforming loans, leases and foreclosed properties were $23.6 billion at December 31, 2012, a decrease from $24.9 billion at September 30, 2012 and $27.7 billion at December 31, 2011.

The Tier 1 common capital ratio under Basel 1 was 11.06 percent at December 31, 2012, compared to 11.41 percent at September 30, 2012 and 9.86 percent at December 31, 2011. The Tier 1 capital ratio was 12.89 percent at December 31, 2012, compared to 13.64 percent at September 30, 2012 and 12.40 percent at December 31, 2011. The decline in the Tier 1 common capital ratio (Basel 1) from the third quarter of 2012 was primarily driven by a decline in Tier 1 common capital due to pretax losses and higher risk-weighted assets on commercial loan growth.

As of December 31, 2012, the company's Tier 1 common capital ratio on a Basel 3 fully phased-in basis was estimated at 9.25 percent, up from 8.97 percent at September 30, 2012A. Basel 3 estimates are based on the company's current understanding of the U.S. Basel 3 NPRs, assuming all regulatory model approvals, except for the potential reduction to the risk-weighted assets resulting from the Comprehensive Risk Measure after one year. Under Basel 3, the Tier 1 common capital ratio increased from the estimate for the third quarter of 2012 as the adverse impacts of the pretax losses, the unrealized loss on available-for-sale debt securities that was recognized in other comprehensive income and the increase in threshold deductions were more than offset by lower risk-weighted assets. The decline in risk-weighted assets was primarily due to lower exposures and updates of recent loss experience in our credit models.

At December 31, 2012, the company's total Global Excess Liquidity Sources were $372 billion, a modest reduction of $6 billion from the fourth quarter of 2011, while long-term debt declined by $96.7 billion from the year-ago period. Time-to-required funding was 33 months at December 31, 2012, compared to 35 months at September 30, 2012 and 29 months at December 31, 2011.

During the fourth quarter of 2012, a cash dividend of $0.01 per common share was paid and the company recorded $365 million in preferred dividends. Period-end common shares issued and outstanding were 10.78 billion and 10.54 billion for the fourth quarter of 2012 and 2011.

Bank of America Corporation and Subsidiaries
Reconciliations to GAAP Financial Measures
(Dollars in millions)

The Corporation evaluates its business based on a fully taxable-equivalent basis, a non-GAAP financial measure. The Corporation believes managing the business with net interest income on a fully taxable-equivalent basis provides a more accurate picture of the interest margin for comparative purposes. Total revenue, net of interest expense, includes net interest income on a fully taxable-equivalent basis and noninterest income. The Corporation views related ratios and analyses (i.e., efficiency ratios and net interest yield) on a fully taxable-equivalent basis. To derive the fully taxable-equivalent basis, net interest income is adjusted to reflect tax-exempt income on an equivalent before-tax basis with a corresponding increase in income tax expense. This measure ensures comparability of net interest income arising from taxable and tax-exempt sources. The efficiency ratio measures the costs expended to generate a dollar of revenue, and net interest yield evaluates the basis points the Corporation earns over the cost of funds.

The Corporation also evaluates its business based on the following ratios that utilize tangible equity, a non-GAAP financial measure. Return on average tangible common shareholders’ equity measures the Corporation’s earnings contribution as a percentage of average common shareholders’ equity less goodwill and intangible assets (excluding mortgage servicing rights), net of related deferred tax liabilities. Return on average tangible shareholders’ equity measures the Corporation’s earnings contribution as a percentage of average shareholders’ equity less goodwill and intangible assets (excluding mortgage servicing rights), net of related deferred tax liabilities. The tangible common equity ratio represents ending common shareholders’ equity less goodwill and intangible assets (excluding mortgage servicing rights), net of related deferred tax liabilities divided by total assets less goodwill and intangible assets (excluding mortgage servicing rights), net of related deferred tax liabilities. The tangible equity ratio represents total ending shareholders’ equity less goodwill and intangible assets (excluding mortgage servicing rights), net of related deferred tax liabilities divided by total assets less goodwill and intangible assets (excluding mortgage servicing rights), net of related deferred tax liabilities. Tangible book value per common share represents ending common shareholders’ equity less goodwill and intangible assets (excluding mortgage servicing rights), net of related deferred tax liabilities divided by ending common shares outstanding. These measures are used to evaluate the Corporation’s use of equity (i.e., capital). In addition, profitability, relationship and investment models all use return on average tangible shareholders’ equity as key measures to support our overall growth goals.

In addition, the Corporation evaluates its business segment results based on return on average economic capital, a non-GAAP financial measure. Return on average economic capital for the segments is calculated as net income adjusted for cost of funds and earnings credits and certain expenses related to intangibles, divided by average economic capital. Economic capital represents average allocated equity less goodwill and a percentage of intangible assets (excluding mortgage servicing rights). It also believes the use of this non-GAAP financial measure provides additional clarity in assessing the segments.

In certain presentations, earnings and diluted earnings per common share, the efficiency ratio, return on average assets, return on common shareholders’ equity, return on average tangible common shareholders’ equity and return on average tangible shareholders’ equity are calculated excluding the impact of goodwill impairment charges of $581 million and $2.6 billion recorded in the fourth and second quarters of 2011. Accordingly, these are non-GAAP financial measures.

See the tables below and on pages 26-28 for reconciliations of these non-GAAP financial measures with financial measures defined by GAAP for the three months ended December 31, 2012, September 30, 2012 and December 31, 2011, and the years ended December 31, 2012 and 2011. The Corporation believes the use of these non-GAAP financial measures provides additional clarity in assessing the results of the Corporation. Other companies may define or calculate supplemental financial data differently.
