Item 2. Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations
Bank of America Corporation (the “Corporation”) and its management may make certain statements that constitute “forward-looking statements” within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. These statements can be identified by the fact that they do not relate strictly to historical or current facts. Forward-looking statements often use words such as “anticipates,” “targets,” “expects,” “hopes,” “estimates,” “intends,” “plans,” “goals,” “believes,” “continue” and other similar expressions or future or conditional verbs such as “will,” “may,” “might,” “should,” “would” and “could.” Forward-looking statements represent the Corporation’s current expectations, plans or forecasts of its future results, revenues, expenses, efficiency ratio, capital measures, strategy and future business and economic conditions more generally, and other future matters. These statements are not guarantees of future results or performance and involve certain known and unknown risks, uncertainties and assumptions that are difficult to predict and are often beyond the Corporation’s control. Actual outcomes and results may differ materially from those expressed in, or implied by, any of these forward-looking statements.
You should not place undue reliance on any forward-looking statement and should consider the following uncertainties and risks, as well as the risks and uncertainties more fully discussed under Item 1A. Risk Factors of our 2017 Annual Report on Form 10-K and in any of the Corporations subsequent Securities and Exchange Commission filings: the Corporation’s potential claims, damages, penalties, fines and reputational damage resulting from pending or future litigation, regulatory proceedings and enforcement actions, including inquiries into our retail sales practices, and the possibility that amounts may be in excess of the Corporation’s recorded liability and estimated range of possible loss for litigation exposures; the possibility that the Corporation could face increased servicing, securities, fraud, indemnity, contribution or other claims from one or more counterparties, including trustees, purchasers of loans, underwriters, issuers, monolines, private-label and other investors, or other parties involved in securitizations; the possibility that future representations and warranties losses may occur in excess of the Corporation’s recorded liability and estimated range of possible loss for its representations and warranties exposures; the Corporation’s ability to resolve representations and warranties repurchase and related claims, including claims brought by investors or trustees seeking to avoid the statute of limitations for repurchase claims; uncertainties about the financial stability and growth rates of non-U.S. jurisdictions, the risk that those jurisdictions may face difficulties servicing their sovereign debt, and related stresses on financial markets, currencies and trade, and the Corporation’s exposures to such risks, including direct, indirect and operational;
 
the impact of U.S. and global interest rates, currency exchange rates, economic conditions, trade policies and potential geopolitical instability; the impact on the Corporation’s business, financial condition and results of operations of a potential higher interest rate environment; the possibility that future credit losses may be higher than currently expected due to changes in economic assumptions, customer behavior, adverse developments with respect to U.S. or global economic conditions and other uncertainties; the Corporation’s ability to achieve its expense targets, net interest income expectations, or other projections; adverse changes to the Corporation’s credit ratings from the major credit rating agencies; estimates of the fair value of certain of the Corporation’s assets and liabilities, which may change; uncertainty regarding the content, timing and impact of regulatory capital and liquidity requirements; the potential impact of total loss-absorbing capacity requirements; potential adverse changes to our global systemically important bank surcharge; the potential impact of Federal Reserve actions on the Corporation’s capital plans; the possible impact of the Corporation’s failure to remediate a shortcoming identified by banking regulators in the Corporation’s Resolution Plan; the effect of regulations, other guidance or additional information on our estimated impact of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act; the impact of implementation and compliance with U.S. and international laws, regulations and regulatory interpretations, including, but not limited to, recovery and resolution planning requirements, Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation assessments, the Volcker Rule, fiduciary standards and derivatives regulations; a failure in or breach of the Corporation’s operational or security systems or infrastructure, or those of third parties, including as a result of cyber attacks; the impact on the Corporation’s business, financial condition and results of operations from the planned exit of the United Kingdom from the European Union; and other similar matters.
Forward-looking statements speak only as of the date they are made, and the Corporation undertakes no obligation to update any forward-looking statement to reflect the impact of circumstances or events that arise after the date the forward-looking statement was made.
Notes to the Consolidated Financial Statements referred to in the Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations (MD&A) are incorporated by reference into the MD&A. Certain prior-period amounts have been reclassified to conform to current-period presentation. Throughout the MD&A, the Corporation uses certain acronyms and abbreviations which are defined in the Glossary.

Recent Events
Capital Management
Following completion of the Federal Reserve System’s (Federal Reserve) 2018 Comprehensive Capital Analysis and Review (CCAR), the Federal Reserve did not object to the Corporation’s capital plan, which is estimated to return approximately $26 billion to common shareholders over the next four quarters through a quarterly common stock dividend increase and common stock repurchases. That estimate is based upon the Corporation’s current number of outstanding shares and share price.
As part of the capital plan, on July 26, 2018, the Corporation’s Board of Directors (the Board) declared a quarterly common stock dividend of $0.15 per share, an increase of 25 percent, payable on September 28, 2018 to shareholders of record as of September 7, 2018.
Also, on June 28, 2018, the Board authorized the repurchase of approximately $20.6 billion in common stock from July 1, 2018 through June 30, 2019, which includes approximately $600 million in repurchases to offset shares awarded under equity-based compensation plans during the same period. The repurchase program covers both common stock and warrants. For additional information, see the Corporation’s Current Report on Form 8-K filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) on June 28, 2018.
During the second quarter of 2018, we repurchased $5.0 billion of common stock pursuant to the Board’s repurchase authorizations announced on June 28, 2017 and December 5, 2017. These repurchase authorizations expired on June 30, 2018. For additional information, see Capital Management on page 22.
Trust Preferred Securities Redemption
On April 30, 2018, the Corporation announced that it submitted redemption notices for 11 series of trust preferred securities, resulting in the redemption of such trust preferred securities along with the applicable trust common securities (held by the Corporation or its affiliates) on June 6, 2018. Upon redemption of the trust preferred securities and the extinguishment of the related junior subordinated notes issued by the Corporation, we recorded a charge to other income of $729 million. For additional information, see Liquidity Risk on page 26 and the Corporation’s Current Report on Form 8-K filed with the SEC on April 30, 2018.

Return on average tangible common shareholders’ equity is a non-GAAP financial measure. For more information and a corresponding reconciliation to accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (GAAP) financial measures, see Non-GAAP Reconciliations on page 53.
Net income was $6.8 billion and $13.7 billion, or $0.63 and $1.25 per diluted share for the three and six months ended June 30, 2018 compared to $5.1 billion and $10.4 billion, or $0.44 and $0.89 per diluted share for the same periods in 2017. The improvement in net income for the three and six months ended June 30, 2018 was driven by a decrease in income tax expense due to the impacts of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (the Tax Act), an increase in net interest income and a decline in noninterest expense, partially offset by a decline in noninterest income. Impacts from the Tax Act include a reduction in the federal tax rate to 21 percent from 35 percent.
Total assets increased $10.4 billion from December 31, 2017 to $2.3 trillion at June 30, 2018 driven by higher cash and cash equivalents from liquidity management actions and an increase in securities borrowed or purchased under agreements to resell due to growth in Global Markets. These increases were partially offset by decreases in trading account assets due to reduced inventory levels in Global Markets and lower loans held-for-sale (LHFS).
Total liabilities increased $13.4 billion from December 31, 2017 to $2.0 trillion at June 30, 2018 primarily driven by higher short-term borrowings due to higher Federal Home Loan Bank (FHLB) advances and an increase in trading account liabilities
 
driven by activity in Global Markets. Shareholders’ equity decreased $2.9 billion from December 31, 2017 primarily due to returns of capital to shareholders through common stock repurchases and common and preferred stock dividends, market value declines in debt securities and the redemption of preferred stock, partially offset by net income and issuances of preferred stock.
Net Interest Income
Net interest income increased $664 million to $11.7 billion, and $1.2 billion to $23.3 billion for the three and six months ended June 30, 2018 compared to the same periods in 2017. The net interest yield increased five basis points (bps) to 2.34 percent, and three bps to 2.35 percent for the same periods. These increases were primarily driven by higher interest rates and higher commercial loan balances funded by deposit growth, partially offset by the impact of the sale of the non-U.S. consumer credit card business in the second quarter of 2017 and, for the six months ended June 30, 2018, higher funding costs in Global Markets. For more information regarding interest rate risk management, see Interest Rate Risk Management for the Banking Book on page 50.

Noninterest income decreased $884 million to $11.0 billion, and $557 million to $22.5 billion for the three and six months ended June 30, 2018 compared to the same periods in 2017. The following highlights the significant changes.
Investment and brokerage services income increased $245 million for the six-month period primarily due to assets under management (AUM) flows and higher market valuations, partially offset by the impact of changing market dynamics on transactional revenue and AUM pricing.
Investment banking income decreased $110 million and $341 million primarily due to declines in advisory fees and debt issuances, partially offset by an increase in equity issuances.
Trading account profits increased $359 million and $727 million primarily driven by increased client activity in equity financing and derivatives, and strong trading performance in equity derivatives and macro-related products, partially offset by weakness in credit products.
Other income decreased $1.2 billion in both periods primarily due to the impact of a $793 million pretax gain recognized in
 
the second quarter of 2017 in connection with the sale of the non-U.S. consumer credit card business and, in the second quarter of 2018, a negative impact from a $729 million charge related to the redemption of certain trust preferred securities, partially offset by a $572 million gain from the sale of certain non-core mortgage loans.
Provision for Credit Losses
The provision for credit losses increased $101 million to $827 million, and $100 million to $1.7 billion for the three and six months ended June 30, 2018 compared to the same periods in 2017 primarily due to portfolio seasoning and loan growth in the U.S. credit card portfolio and a slower pace of improvement in the consumer real estate portfolio. The increases were partially offset by improvement in the commercial portfolio primarily driven by a reduction in energy exposures, and the impact of the sale of the non-U.S. consumer credit card business during the second quarter of 2017. For more information on the provision for credit losses, see Provision for Credit Losses on page 45.

Noninterest expense decreased $698 million to $13.3 billion, and $894 million to $27.2 billion for the three and six months ended June 30, 2018 compared to the same periods in 2017 primarily driven by lower other general operating expense. The decrease in other general operating expense resulted from a $295 million impairment charge recognized in the second quarter of 2017 related to certain data centers as well as lower litigation expense in 2018. Most other expense categories also declined compared to the same periods in 2017 reflecting operating efficiencies.

The effective tax rates for the three and six months ended June 30, 2018 reflect the 21 percent federal tax rate and the other provisions of the Tax Act, as well as the impact of our recurring tax preference benefits. The six-month effective rate also included tax benefits related to stock-based compensation.
The effective tax rates for the three and six months ended June 30, 2017 were driven by the impact of our recurring tax preference benefits partially offset by a tax charge related to the sale of the non-U.S. consumer credit card business during the second quarter of 2017. The six-month effective tax rate also included tax benefits related to stock-based compensation.
We expect the effective tax rate for the second half of 2018 to be approximately 21 percent, absent unusual items.
Supplemental Financial Data
In this Form 10-Q, we present certain non-GAAP financial measures. Non-GAAP financial measures exclude certain items or otherwise include components that differ from the most directly comparable measures calculated in accordance with GAAP. Non-GAAP financial measures are provided as additional useful information to assess our financial condition, results of operations (including period-to-period operating performance) or compliance with prospective regulatory requirements. These non-GAAP financial measures are not intended as a substitute for GAAP financial measures and may not be defined or calculated the same way as non-GAAP financial measures used by other companies.
We view net interest income and related ratios and analyses on a fully taxable-equivalent (FTE) basis, which when presented on a consolidated basis, are non-GAAP financial measures. To derive the FTE 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, we use the federal statutory tax rate of 21 percent for 2018 (35 percent for all prior periods) and a representative state tax rate. In addition, certain performance measures, including the efficiency ratio and net interest yield, utilize net interest income (and thus total revenue) on an FTE basis. The efficiency ratio measures the costs expended to generate a dollar of revenue, and net interest yield measures the bps we earn over the cost of funds. We believe that presentation of these items on an FTE basis allows for comparison of amounts from both taxable and tax-exempt sources and is consistent with industry practices.
We may present certain key performance indicators and ratios excluding certain items (e.g., debit valuation adjustment (DVA) gains (losses)) which result in non-GAAP financial measures. We
 
believe that the presentation of measures that exclude these items is useful because such measures provide additional information to assess the underlying operational performance and trends of our businesses and to allow better comparison of period-to-period operating performance.
We also evaluate our business based on certain 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 certain acquired intangible assets (excluding mortgage servicing rights (MSRs)), net of related deferred tax liabilities. These measures are used to evaluate our use of equity. In addition, profitability, relationship and investment models use both return on average tangible common shareholders’ equity and return on average tangible shareholders’ equity as key measures to support our overall growth goals. These ratios are as follows:
Return on average tangible common shareholders’ equity measures our earnings contribution as a percentage of adjusted common shareholders’ equity. The tangible common equity ratio represents adjusted ending common shareholders’ equity divided by total assets less goodwill and certain acquired intangible assets (excluding MSRs), net of related deferred tax liabilities.
Return on average tangible shareholders’ equity measures our earnings contribution as a percentage of adjusted average total shareholders’ equity. The tangible equity ratio represents adjusted ending shareholders’ equity divided by total assets less goodwill and certain acquired intangible assets (excluding MSRs), net of related deferred tax liabilities.
Tangible book value per common share represents adjusted ending common shareholders’ equity divided by ending common shares outstanding.
We believe that the use of ratios that utilize tangible equity provides additional useful information because they present measures of those assets that can generate income. Tangible book value per share provides additional useful information about the level of tangible assets in relation to outstanding shares of common stock.
The aforementioned supplemental data and performance measures are presented in Tables 5 and 6.
For more information on the reconciliation of these non-GAAP financial measures to GAAP financial measures, see Non-GAAP Reconciliations on page 53.

Business Segment Operations
Segment Description and Basis of Presentation
We report our results of operations through the following four business segments: Consumer Banking, GWIM, Global Banking and Global Markets, with the remaining operations recorded in All Other. We periodically review capital allocated to our businesses and allocate capital annually during the strategic and capital planning processes. We utilize a methodology that considers the effect of regulatory capital requirements in addition to internal risk-based capital models. Our internal risk-based capital models use a risk-adjusted methodology incorporating each segment’s credit,
 
market, interest rate, business and operational risk components. For more information on the nature of these risks, see Managing Risk on page 22. The capital allocated to the business segments
is referred to as allocated capital. Allocated equity in the reporting units is comprised of allocated capital plus capital for the portion of goodwill and intangibles specifically assigned to the reporting unit. For more information, see Note 8 – Goodwill and Intangible Assets to the Consolidated Financial Statements.
For more information on the basis of presentation for business segments and reconciliations to consolidated total revenue, net income and period-end total assets, see Note 17 – Business Segment Information to the Consolidated Financial Statements.
