1 Fully taxable-equivalent (FTE) basis is a non-GAAP financial measure. For reconciliation to GAAP financial measures, refer to pages 23-25 of this press release. Net interest income on a GAAP basis was $10.8 billion and $10.3 billion for the three months ended December 31, 2013 and 2012, and $42.3 billion and $40.7 billion for the years ended December 31, 2013 and 2012. Total revenue, net of interest expense, on a GAAP basis was $21.5 billion and $18.7 billion for the three months ended December 31, 2013 and 2012, and $88.9 billion and $83.3 billion for the years ended December 31, 2013 and 2012.

2 Total revenue, net of interest expense, on an FTE basis excluding DVA and FVO adjustments is a non-GAAP financial measure. DVA losses were $201 million and $277 million for the three months ended December 31, 2013 and 2012, and $508 million and $2.5 billion for the years ended December 31, 2013 and 2012. Valuation losses related to FVO were $417 million and $442 million for the three months ended December 31, 2013 and 2012, and $649 million and $5.1 billion for the years ended December 31, 2013 and 2012.


Revenue, net of interest expense, on an FTE basisA rose $2.8 billion from the fourth quarter of 2012 to $21.7 billion. Excluding the impact of debit valuation adjustments (DVA) and fair value option (FVO) adjustmentsB, revenue was $22.3 billion in the fourth quarter of 2013, compared to $19.6 billion in the fourth quarter of 2012.

Net interest income, on an FTE basis, rose 4 percent from the year-ago quarter to $11.0 billionA. The improvement was driven by reductions in long-term debt balances and yields, favorable market-related adjustments from lower premium amortization, lower rates paid on deposits, and higher commercial loan balances. These factors were partially offset by lower consumer loan balances and lower asset yields. Net interest margin was 2.56 percent in the fourth quarter of 2013, compared to 2.35 percent in the fourth quarter of 2012.

Noninterest income increased 28 percent from the year-ago quarter, to $10.7 billion, driven by lower representations and warranties provision and year-over-year improvement in both investment banking fees and investment and brokerage income. This was partially offset by lower equity investment income compared to the fourth quarter of 2012.

The provision for credit losses declined $1.9 billion from the fourth quarter of 2012 to $336 million, driven by improved credit quality. Net charge-offs declined significantly to $1.6 billion in the fourth quarter of 2013 from $3.1 billion in the fourth quarter of 2012, with the net charge-off ratio falling to 0.68 percent in the fourth quarter of 2013 from 1.40 percent in the year-ago quarter. The provision for credit losses in the fourth quarter of 2013 included a $1.2 billion reduction in the allowance for credit losses, compared to a $900 million reduction in the allowance in the fourth quarter of 2012.

Noninterest expense was $17.3 billion, compared to $18.4 billion in the year-ago quarter, driven primarily by reduced expenses in Legacy Assets and Servicing (LAS) and lower personnel expense as the company continued to streamline processes and achieve cost savings. This was partially offset by higher litigation expense reflecting continued evaluation of legacy exposures largely related to residential mortgage-backed securities (RMBS) litigation. Litigation expense rose to $2.3 billion in the fourth quarter of 2013 from $1.1 billion in the third quarter of 2013 and $916 million in the fourth quarter of 2012. In addition, the year-ago quarter included a $1.1 billion expense related to the Independent Foreclosure Review (IFR) acceleration agreement.

Income tax expense for the fourth quarter of 2013 was $406 million on $3.8 billion of pretax income, compared to an income tax benefit of $2.6 billion on $1.9 billion of pretax loss in the year-ago quarter. The effective tax rate for the quarter of 10.6 percent was driven by recurring tax preference items and certain discrete tax benefits. At December 31, 2013, the company had 242,117 full-time employees, down 9 percent from the year-ago quarter.

Business Segment Results

The company reports results through five business segments: Consumer and Business Banking (CBB), Consumer Real Estate Services (CRES), Global Wealth and Investment Management (GWIM), Global Banking, and Global Markets, with the remaining operations recorded in All Other.

Unless otherwise noted, business segment revenue, net of interest expense, is on an FTE basis.

Business Highlights

  • Average deposit balances for the quarter of $528.8 billion increased $44.7 billion, or 9 percent, from the year-ago quarter. The increase was driven by growth in liquid products in the current low-rate environment and the $20 billion average impact of deposit transfers primarily from Global Wealth and Investment Management (GWIM). The average rate paid on deposits declined to 8 basis points in the fourth quarter of 2013 from 16 basis points in the year-ago quarter, due to pricing discipline and a shift in the mix of deposits.
  • The number of active mobile banking customers increased 20 percent from the year-ago quarter to 14.4 million.
  • Total Corporate U.S. Consumer Credit Card (including balances in GWIM) retail spending per average active account increased 6 percent from the fourth quarter of 2012.
  • Total Corporate U.S. Consumer Credit Card net credit loss rate for the fourth quarter of 2013 was 3.19 percent, the lowest since the first quarter of 2006.
  • Return on average allocated capital increased to 26.03 percent in the fourth quarter of 2013 from 23.55 percent in the third quarter of 2013.

Financial Overview

Consumer and Business Banking reported net income of $2.0 billion, up $521 million, or 36 percent, from the year-ago quarter, driven by lower provision for credit losses, lower noninterest expense and higher revenue.

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.

Business Highlights

  • Bank of America funded $13.5 billion in residential home loans and home equity loans during the fourth quarter of 2013, helping nearly 50,000 homeowners either refinance an existing mortgage or purchase a home through our retail channels. This included nearly 4,200 first-time homebuyer mortgages and more than 17,000 mortgages to low- and moderate-income borrowers.
  • Approximately 68 percent of funded first mortgages were refinances and 32 percent were for home purchases.
  • The number of 60+ days delinquent first-mortgage loans serviced by LAS declined 18 percent during the fourth quarter of 2013 to 325,000 loans from 398,000 loans at the end of the third quarter of 2013, and declined 58 percent from 773,000 loans at the end of the fourth quarter of 2012.

Financial Overview

Consumer Real Estate Services reported a net loss of $1.1 billion for the fourth quarter of 2013, compared to a net loss of $3.7 billion for the same period in 2012. The year-ago quarter included the settlements with the Federal National Mortgage Association (Fannie Mae) to resolve outstanding and potential repurchase and certain other claims and $1.1 billion of expense related to the IFR acceleration agreement.

Revenue increased $1.2 billion from the fourth quarter of 2012 to $1.7 billion due to a $2.9 billion reduction in representations and warranties provision, partially offset by a $1.1 billion decline in servicing revenue reflecting lower Mortgage Servicing Rights (MSR) net-of-hedge performance and a smaller servicing portfolio, as well as a decline in core production revenue.

CRES first-mortgage originations declined 46 percent in the fourth quarter of 2013 compared to the same period in 2012, reflecting a corresponding decline in the overall market demand for mortgages. Core production revenue declined in the fourth quarter of 2013 to $403 million from $986 million in the year-ago quarter due to lower volume as well as a reduction in margins resulting from the continued industrywide margin compression over the past year. The provision for representations and warranties declined to $70 million in the fourth quarter of 2013 from $3.0 billion in the fourth quarter of 2012, which included the Fannie Mae settlements mentioned above.

The provision for credit losses decreased $959 million from the year-ago quarter to a benefit of $474 million, driven primarily by increased home prices and improved portfolio trends.

Noninterest expense decreased $1.8 billion from the year-ago quarter to $3.8 billion, due to the IFR expense in the year-ago quarter mentioned above, as well as lower LAS default-related servicing expenses as a result of continued staff reductions and lower assessments, waivers and similar costs related to foreclosure delays. These improvements were partially offset by a $522 million increase in litigation expense in LAS from the fourth quarter of 2012 to the fourth quarter of 2013.

A significant contributor to the year-over-year expense reduction was the improvement in the number of 60+ days delinquent first-mortgage loans serviced by LAS, which fell 58 percent to 325,000 loans from 773,000 loans at the end of the fourth quarter of 2012.

Business Highlights

  • Asset management fees grew to $1.8 billion, up 15 percent from the year-ago quarter.
  • Client balances increased 10 percent to a record $2.37 trillion, driven by higher market levels and net inflows.

  • Fourth-quarter 2013 long-term AUM flows of $9.4 billion were the 18th consecutive quarter of positive flows. For the full year, long-term AUM flows were a record $47.8 billion, up $21.4 billion or 81 percent from a year ago.
  • Return on average allocated capital increased to 30.97 percent in the fourth quarter of 2013 from 28.68 percent in the third quarter of 2013.

Financial Overview

Global Wealth and Investment Management reported strong results across many measures in the fourth quarter of 2013 with record net income, record asset management fees and strong client flows. Net income rose 35 percent from the fourth quarter of 2012 to a record $777 million, reflecting strong revenue performance and low credit costs.

Revenue increased 7 percent from the year-ago quarter to $4.5 billion, driven by higher noninterest income related to long-term AUM flows and higher market levels.

The provision for credit losses decreased $86 million from the year-ago quarter to $26 million due to improvement in the home loans portfolio. Noninterest expense of $3.3 billion increased 2 percent, driven by higher volume-related expenses, partially offset by lower support and other personnel costs.

Client balances rose 10 percent from a year ago to $2.37 trillion, driven largely by higher market levels, long-term AUM flows of $47.8 billion and period-end client loan growth of $9.5 billion. Assets under management rose $123.4 billion, or 18 percent, from the fourth quarter of 2012 to $821.4 billion, driven by market appreciation and long-term AUM flows. Average deposit balances declined $9.3 billion from the fourth quarter of 2012 to $240.4 billion as the impact of transfers to CBB was partially offset by organic growth.

Revenue of $4.3 billion was up 9 percent from the year-ago quarter, reflecting higher net interest income, driven by loan growth and higher Investment Banking fees.

Fixed Income, Currency and Commodities sales and trading revenue, excluding DVAG, was $2.1 billion in the fourth quarter of 2013, an increase of $292 million, or 16 percent, from the year-ago quarter, as stronger results in credit and mortgage products more than offset weakness in rates and commodities.

Total average assets declined 7 percent from the fourth quarter of 2012 to $603.1 billion from $645.8 billion.

1 All Other consists of ALM activities, equity investments, the international consumer card business, 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, the impact of certain allocation methodologies and accounting hedge ineffectiveness. Equity Investments include Global Principal Investments (GPI), strategic and certain other investments. Other includes certain residential mortgage loans that are managed by Legacy Assets and Servicing within CRES.

2 Revenue includes equity investment income of $392 million and $569 million for the three months ended December 31, 2013 and 2012 and $2.6 billion and $1.1 billion for the years ended December 31, 2013 and 2012, and gains on sales of debt securities of $364 million and $117 million for the three months ended December 31, 2013 and 2012, and $1.2 billion and $1.5 billion for the years ended December 31, 2013 and 2012.


All Other reported net income of $274 million in the fourth quarter of 2013, compared to $841 million for the same period a year ago. The decline was primarily driven by lower income tax benefits, as the year-ago period included the recognition of certain foreign tax credits, as well as lower equity investment income compared to the year-ago quarter. This was partially offset by a $638 million decrease in the provision for credit losses from the year-ago quarter, primarily reflecting the continued improvement in portfolio trends, including increased home prices in the residential mortgage portfolio. Negative FVO adjustments were $417 million in the fourth quarter of 2013, flat from the year-ago quarter.

4 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 2013, with net charge-offs declining across all major portfolios and the provision for credit losses decreasing from the year-ago quarter. The number of 30+ days performing delinquent loans, excluding fully-insured loans, declined across all consumer portfolios from the year-ago quarter, again reaching record low levels in the U.S. credit card portfolio. Additionally, reservable criticized balances and nonperforming loans, leases and foreclosed properties also continued to decline, down 19 percent and 25 percent from the year-ago period.

Net charge-offs were $1.6 billion in the fourth quarter of 2013, down from $3.1 billion in the fourth quarter of 2012. The most recent quarter included $144 million in accelerated charge-offs related to the impact associated with a clarification of regulatory guidance on the accounting for troubled debt restructurings in the home loans portfolios.

The provision for credit losses was $336 million, down $1.9 billion from the fourth quarter of 2012. The provision included a $1.2 billion reduction in the allowance for credit losses in the fourth quarter of 2013, compared to a $900 million reduction in the allowance in the fourth quarter of 2012. The reduction in provision was driven by improvement in the consumer real estate portfolios, primarily due to increased home prices and continued portfolio improvement, as well as lower levels of delinquencies across the Consumer Lending portfolio. This was partially offset by higher provision for credit losses in the commercial portfolio associated with loan growth.

The allowance for loan and lease losses to annualized net charge-off coverage ratio was 2.78 times in the fourth quarter of 2013, compared to 1.96 times in the fourth quarter of 2012. The allowance to annualized net charge-off coverage ratio, excluding PCI, was 2.38 times in the fourth quarter of 2013 and 1.51 times in the fourth quarter of 2012.

Nonperforming loans, leases and foreclosed properties were $17.8 billion at December 31, 2013, a decrease from $20.0 billion at September 30, 2013 and $23.6 billion at December 31, 2012.

2 As of January 1, 2013, the Market Risk Final Rule became effective under Basel 1. The Market Risk Final Rule introduces new measures of market risk including a charge related to stressed Value-at-Risk (sVaR), an incremental risk charge and a comprehensive risk measure, as well as other technical modifications. The Basel 1 Tier 1 common capital ratio for December 31, 2012 is not presented as the Market Risk Final Rule did not apply during that period.

n/a = not applicable


The Tier 1 common capital ratio, including the Market Risk Final Rule, was 11.19 percent at December 31, 2013, up from 11.08 percent at September 30, 2013.

As of December 31, 2013, the company's Tier 1 common capital ratio on a Basel 3 fully phased-in basis under the Advanced approach is estimated at 9.96 percent, up from 9.94 percent at September 30, 2013 and 9.25 percent at December 31, 2012D.

The estimated Basel 3 Tier 1 common capital ratio at year-end 2013 increased modestly from the third quarter of 2013 as earnings were offset by negative other comprehensive income for the quarter and common share repurchases. Estimated Basel 3 risk-weighted assets at year-end 2013 increased modestly compared to the third quarter of 2013.

Based on the proposed increases to the U.S. supplementary leverage ratio minimum requirements, the company expects that as of December 31, 2013, the supplementary leverage ratio for Bank of America Corporation would be above the proposed required 5 percent minimum and the supplementary leverage ratios for the company’s two primary bank subsidiaries, Bank of America, National Association and FIA Card Services, National Association, would be above the proposed 6 percent minimum. The U.S. supplementary leverage ratio requirements are expected to take effect in 2018E.

At December 31, 2013, the company's total Global Excess Liquidity Sources totaled $376 billion, up from $359 billion at September 30, 2013 and $372 billion at December 31, 2012. Long-term debt was $250 billion as of December 31, 2013, down from $255 billion at September 30, 2013 and $276 billion at December 31, 2012, reflecting the company's continued focus on liability management. Time-to-required funding was 38 months at December 31, 2013, compared to 35 months at September 30, 2013 and 33 months at December 31, 2012.

During the fourth quarter of 2013, a cash dividend of $0.01 per common share was paid, and the company recorded $256 million in preferred dividends.

Period-end common shares issued and outstanding were 10.59 billion and 10.78 billion at December 31, 2013 and 2012. The company previously announced that it was authorized to repurchase up to $5.0 billion of common stock. As of December 31, 2013, approximately 232 million common shares had been repurchased for approximately $3.2 billion at an average price of $13.90 per share.

Tangible book value per share of common stockH was $13.79 at December 31, 2013 compared to $13.36 at December 31, 2012. Book value per share was $20.71 at December 31, 2013 compared to $20.24 at December 31, 2012.

(1) Return on average tangible shareholders’ equity and tangible book value per share of common stock are non-GAAP financial measures. We believe the use of these non-GAAP financial measures provides additional clarity in assessing the results of the Corporation. Other companies may define or calculate non-GAAP financial measures differently. See Reconciliations to GAAP Financial Measures on pages 23-25.

(2) Ratios do not include loans accounted for under the fair value option during the period. Charge-off ratios are annualized for the quarterly presentation.

(3) Balances do not include past due consumer credit card, consumer loans secured by real estate where repayments are insured by the Federal Housing Administration and individually insured long-term stand-by agreements (fully-insured home loans), and in general, other consumer and commercial loans not secured by real estate; purchased credit-impaired loans even though the customer may be contractually past due; nonperforming loans held-for-sale; nonperforming loans accounted for under the fair value option; and nonaccruing troubled debt restructured loans removed from the purchased credit-impaired portfolio prior to January 1, 2010.

(4) Regulatory capital ratios are preliminary until filed with the Federal Reserve on Form Y-9C.

(5) Basel 1 includes the Market Risk Final Rule at December 31, 2013 and September 30, 2013. Basel 1 did not include the Market Risk Final Rule at December 31, 2012.

(6) Tier 1 common capital ratio equals Tier 1 capital excluding preferred stock, trust preferred securities, hybrid securities and minority interest divided by risk-weighted assets.

(7) Tangible equity ratio equals period-end tangible shareholders’ equity divided by period-end tangible assets. Tangible common equity equals period-end tangible common shareholders’ equity divided by period-end tangible assets. Tangible shareholders’ equity and tangible assets are non-GAAP financial measures. We believe the use of these non-GAAP financial measures provides additional clarity in assessing the results of the Corporation. Other companies may define or calculate non-GAAP financial measures differently. See Reconciliations to GAAP Financial Measures on pages 23-25.

(8) Basel 3 (fully phased-in) estimates are based on the Advanced approach under the final Basel 3 rules issued on July 2, 2013, assuming all regulatory model approvals, except for the potential reduction to risk-weighted assets resulting from the Comprehensive Risk Measure after one year.

Certain prior period amounts have been reclassified to conform to current period presentation.

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. For purposes of this calculation, the Corporation uses the federal statutory tax rate of 35 percent. 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 measures 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. Tangible equity represents an adjusted shareholders’ equity or common shareholders’ equity amount which has been reduced by goodwill and intangible assets (excluding mortgage servicing rights), net of related deferred tax liabilities. Return on average tangible common shareholders’ equity measures the Corporation’s earnings contribution as a percentage of adjusted average common shareholders’ equity. Return on average tangible shareholders’ equity measures the Corporation’s earnings contribution as a percentage of adjusted average total shareholders’ equity. The tangible common equity ratio represents adjusted ending common shareholders’ equity divided by total assets less goodwill and intangible assets (excluding mortgage servicing rights), net of related deferred tax liabilities. The tangible equity ratio represents adjusted ending shareholders’ equity 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 adjusted ending common shareholders’ equity divided by ending common shares outstanding. These measures are used to evaluate the Corporation’s use of equity. In addition, profitability, relationship and investment models all use return on average tangible shareholders’ equity as key measures to support our overall growth goals.

Effective January 1, 2013, on a prospective basis, the Corporation adjusted the amount of capital being allocated to its business segments. The adjustment reflects a refinement to the prior-year methodology (economic capital) which focused solely on internal risk-based economic capital models. The refined methodology (allocated capital) now also considers the effect of regulatory capital requirements in addition to internal risk-based economic capital models. The Corporation’s internal risk-based capital models use a risk-adjusted methodology incorporating each segment’s credit, market, interest rate, business and operational risk components. The capital allocated to the Corporation’s business segments is currently referred to as allocated capital and, prior to January 1, 2013, was referred to as economic capital, both of which represent non-GAAP financial measures. The Corporation plans to further refine, in the first quarter of 2014, the capital being allocated to the Corporation’s business segments with the result being additional capital allocated to the business segments. Allocated capital is subject to change over time.

See the tables below and on pages 24-25 for reconciliations of these non-GAAP financial measures with financial measures defined by GAAP for the years ended December 31, 2013 and 2012, and the three months ended December 31, 2013, September 30, 2013 and December 31, 2012. 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.
