CIT Reports Second Quarter 2010 Net Income of $142 Million; $0.71 Per Diluted Share

Continued Progress Advancing Corporate Initiatives:

  • Increased capital and built reserves:
    • Tier 1 ratio over 17%
    • Book value over $43 per share
  • Debt reduced $3 billion
  • Continued to extend credit to small and middle market businesses
    • New business volume up 14% to over $1 billion

NEW YORK--()--CIT Group Inc. (NYSE: CIT), a leading provider of financing to small businesses and middle market companies, today reported net income for the quarter ended June 30, 2010 of $142.1 million, $0.71 per diluted share, up from $97.3 million and $0.49 per diluted share last quarter.

“During the second quarter we continued to advance our key corporate initiatives,” said John A. Thain, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. “We improved our funding flexibility, repaid higher cost debt, streamlined our portfolio and largely completed the build-out of our senior management team. We remain committed to increasing the value of our commercial franchises and supporting the small business and middle market sectors that are vital to the U.S. economy.”

Summary of Financial Results

Net income increased from the quarter ended March 31, 2010, as gains on sales of assets and recoveries of pre-FSA charged-off receivables more than offset a higher provision for credit losses and costs for an employee retention program announced last quarter. The second quarter results include pre-tax net accretion and lower depreciation of $407 million resulting from fresh start accounting (“FSA”) balance sheet adjustments recorded in December 2009.

Net interest revenue declined $31 million on lower financing assets and less net FSA accretion. However, total net revenues1 increased 28% sequentially as an increase in other income offset the decline in net interest revenue.

Net finance revenue1 (which includes operating lease rentals and depreciation) as a percentage of average earning assets was 4.03% compared to 4.09% last quarter and includes a 3.72% benefit from FSA. Excluding the impacts from FSA and prepayment penalty fees on high cost debt, margin was 0.68% up slightly from the first quarter.

Other income (excluding operating lease rentals) increased from last quarter due to gains on receivable sales and recoveries on receivables charged-off prior to the adoption of FSA. The prior quarter included losses on foreign currency exposures that were largely hedged during the second quarter.

Operating expenses increased from the first quarter as costs related to an employee retention program established last quarter more than offset declines in all other expense categories.

Continued focus on balance sheet optimization resulted in total assets declining $3.1 billion to $54.9 billion. Strategic asset sales, net portfolio collections and $800 million in new financings, enabled the paydown of $3 billion of debt. New business volume of over $1 billion was up 14% from last quarter. Assets held for sale declined during the quarter as the Company completed the sales of its Australia and New Zealand vendor business and approximately $580 million of student lending receivables.

Preliminary Tier 1 and Total Capital ratios improved to 17.2% and 17.9%, respectively, from 15.5% and 15.9% at March 31, 2010, benefiting from both growth in common equity and a decline in risk-weighted assets.

Credit

Reported net charge-offs of $106 million were up $64 million from the first quarter. Non-accrual loans of $2.1 billion increased $120 million from the first quarter, driven primarily by Corporate Finance. These credit metrics, which are after the application of fresh start accounting (post-FSA), include asset marks and other FSA-related items. However, net charge-offs do not reflect recoveries of pre-FSA charge-offs recorded in other income, which were $98 million in the second quarter and $44 million in the first quarter. In aggregate, the charge-offs, net of recoveries recorded in other income, were at levels similar to the first quarter.

Management also evaluates credit performance using credit metrics that exclude the impact of fresh start accounting (pre-FSA). On this basis, gross charge-offs were $252 million, up $16 million from last quarter, driven by certain real estate and energy-related loans. Non-accrual loans of $3.0 billion decreased $54 million from the first quarter.

The provision for credit losses increased from the first quarter, reflecting the recording of non-specific reserves and some incremental deterioration on loans previously discounted in FSA.

Operating Highlights

The sequential quarter improvement in Corporate Finance earnings was driven by higher gains on asset sales and recoveries on pre-FSA loan balances. Corporate Finance completed sales of a joint venture and other assets totaling approximately $890 million, proceeds of which were used to pay down debt. Corporate Finance new business volume increased from the first quarter. Net charge-offs both pre- and post-FSA increased from last quarter due to real estate and energy-related loans. However, net of recoveries recorded in other income, charge-offs were at similar levels to the first quarter. Post-FSA, non-accrual loans increased from March 31, 2010 due to the addition of loans in communications and media industries. On a pre-FSA basis, non-accrual loans were flat.

The improvement in Transportation Finance results reflects higher operating lease margins. The aerospace fleet remained fully utilized. During the quarter 6 new aircraft valued at $0.3 billion were delivered. Lease commitments are in place for all 19 aircraft to be delivered over the next twelve months. Rail revenue increased as utilization improved from 90% to 93% on modest increases in activity across most major car types, and rents improved on usage-based contracts. Non-accrual loans declined and no charge-offs were recorded.

Trade Finance narrowed its loss, which is being driven by high cost of funds. At the end of the quarter the business closed a new committed conduit facility, which will reduce the future cost of funds. The existing client base stabilized and the rate of attrition subsided. Factoring volume totaled $6.3 billion, flat with the first quarter, contributing to level factoring commissions. Credit metrics remained comparable with the first quarter as charge-offs and non-accrual loans remain at relatively low levels.

The decline in Vendor Finance earnings from last quarter reflected reserve strengthening related to a liquidating consumer portfolio, lower asset levels and higher allocated interest costs. Vendor Finance completed the sale of its Australia and New Zealand business on June 30, 2010, and established a committed funding facility for U.K. assets. New business volume was flat with last quarter. Post-FSA, net charge-offs increased from last quarter, but on a pre-FSA basis, net charge-offs declined. Recoveries recorded in other income totaled approximately $15 million in the second quarter and approximately $20 million in the first quarter. On both a pre- and post-FSA basis, non-accrual loans decreased from March 31, 2010.

CIT Bank remains well capitalized and liquid. The preliminary total capital ratio was 59.4% and the leverage ratio was 20.7%. Total deposits were $4.7 billion, down slightly from last quarter. The bank closed several new commercial loans this quarter. New committed loan volume rose to approximately $180 million from approximately $35 million in the first quarter, of which approximately $85 million was funded.

Liquidity and Financing

Total cash at June 30, 2010 was $10.7 billion, up from last quarter, and consisted of $6.1 billion of cash at the bank holding company, $1.7 billion at CIT Bank, $1.7 billion at operating subsidiaries and $1.2 billion in other restricted cash.

During the second quarter, the Company completed a new $650 million committed conduit facility for Trade Finance and a £100 million committed U.K. Vendor Finance conduit facility. These transactions, when combined with first quarter financings, aggregate over $2.5 billion and highlight the Company's success in re-accessing more cost-efficient funding sources.

We continued to prepay high cost first lien debt during the quarter. $2.3 billion was pre-paid during the quarter and approximately $450 million just after quarter-end. $750 million was pre-paid in the first quarter, leaving $4 billion of the original $7.5 billion first lien debt outstanding. Subject to market conditions, we intend to further pay down and/or refinance the remaining first lien debt.
