NEW YORK--()--Morgan Stanley (NYSE: MS) today reported income of $2.2 billion, or $1.14 per diluted share,1 from continuing operations applicable to Morgan Stanley for the third quarter ended September 30, 2011 compared with income of $314 million, or $0.05 per diluted share, for the same period a year ago. Net revenues were $9.9 billion for the current quarter compared with $6.8 billion a year ago. Results for the current quarter included positive revenue of $3.4 billion, or $1.12 per diluted share, compared with negative revenue of $731 million a year ago related to changes in Morgan Stanley’s debt-related credit spreads and other credit factors (Debt Valuation Adjustment, DVA).2, 3

The Firm’s compensation expense for the current quarter was $3.7 billion with a compensation to net revenue ratio of 37%. This ratio was affected by DVA which increased net revenues in the current period. Non-compensation expenses of $2.5 billion reflected higher levels of business activity and costs associated with the U.K. bank levy.

For the current quarter, net income applicable to Morgan Stanley, including discontinued operations, was $1.15 per diluted share, compared with a net loss of $0.07 per diluted share in the third quarter of 2010.4

INSTITUTIONAL SECURITIES

Institutional Securities reported pre-tax income from continuing operations of $3.4 billion compared with $241 million in the third quarter of last year. Net revenues for the current quarter were $6.4 billion compared with $2.9 billion a year ago. DVA resulted in positive revenue of $3.4 billion in the current quarter compared with negative revenue of $731 million a year ago.3 The quarter’s pre-tax margin was 53%.6 Due to the impact of DVA in the comparative periods, the following discussion for sales and trading focuses on current period results.

  • Advisory revenues of $413 million increased 11% from a year ago reflecting higher levels of completed activity.
  • Underwriting revenues of $451 million declined 29% from last year’s third quarter on lower levels of market activity. Equity underwriting revenues of $239 million declined 8% from a year ago. Fixed income underwriting revenues of $212 million declined 44% from last year’s third quarter primarily reflecting lower high yield and investment grade bond issuance volumes.
  • Fixed Income and Commodities sales and trading net revenues were $3.9 billion and included positive revenue of $2.8 billion related to DVA.3 Net revenues for the current quarter reflected market volatility and high levels of client activity in interest rate and currency products as well as commodities, partly offset by losses in credit products due to the stressed credit environment.
  • Equity sales and trading net revenues were $2.0 billion and included positive revenue of $620 million related to DVA.3 Results in the cash and derivatives businesses reflected high levels of client activity and market volumes.
  • Other sales and trading net losses of $443 million, primarily reflected writedowns associated with corporate lending activity.
  • Compensation expense for the current quarter was $1.6 billion with compensation to net revenue ratio of 24%. This ratio was affected by DVA which increased net revenues in the current period. Non-compensation expenses of $1.5 billion increased from $1.2 billion a year ago primarily reflecting higher levels of business activity and costs associated with the U.K. bank levy.
  • Morgan Stanley’s average trading Value-at-Risk measured at the 95% confidence level was $130 million compared with $145 million in the second quarter of 2011 and $142 million in the third quarter of the prior year.

GLOBAL WEALTH MANAGEMENT GROUP

Global Wealth Management Group reported pre-tax income from continuing operations of $362 million compared with $281 million in the third quarter of last year. The quarter’s pre-tax margin was 11%.6 Income after the non controlling interest allocation to Citigroup Inc. and before taxes was $310 million.7

  • Net revenues of $3.3 billion increased from $3.1 billion a year ago primarily reflecting higher asset management revenues and commissions partly offset by net losses from investments associated with the Firm’s deferred compensation and co-investment plans.
  • The compensation to net revenue ratio for the current quarter was 61% with compensation expense of $2.0 billion. Non-compensation expenses were $896 million compared with $913 million a year ago.
  • Total client assets were $1.6 trillion at quarter-end. Client assets in fee-based accounts were $465 billion and represented 30% of total client assets. Net new assets for the quarter were $15.5 billion and net new flows in fee-based accounts were $10.1 billion.

Asset Management reported a pre-tax loss from continuing operations of $117 million compared with pre-tax income from continuing operations of $279 million in last year’s third quarter.8

  • Net revenues of $215 million decreased from $802 million a year ago as solid results in the Traditional Asset Management business were meaningfully offset by losses on principal investments in the Merchant Banking and Real Estate Investing business compared with gains in the prior year quarter.9
  • The compensation to net revenue ratio for the current quarter was 62% with compensation expense of $133 million. Non-compensation expenses of $199 million decreased from $238 million a year ago.
  • Assets under management or supervision at September 30, 2011 of $268 billion increased from $266 billion a year ago. The increase primarily reflected net customer inflows in Morgan Stanley’s liquidity funds, partly offset by lower market levels. The business recorded net outflows of $5.8 billion in the current quarter compared with net inflows of $2.9 billion in the third quarter of last year.

CAPITAL

Morgan Stanley’s Tier 1 capital ratio, under Basel I, was approximately 15.1% and Tier 1 common ratio was approximately 13.1% at September 30, 2011.6, 10 The annualized return on average common equity from continuing operations was 14.5% in the current quarter.

At September 30, 2011, it is expected that Risk Weighted Assets (RWAs) that are utilized in the Company’s calculations of its regulatory capital ratios under Basel I (i.e., Total capital, Tier 1 capital and Tier 1 common) will increase by an approximate net $44 billion from the $305 billion reported at June 30, 2011. Previously, Morgan Stanley applied a capital treatment for OTC derivatives collateral that reduced the Company’s overall RWAs based on regulatory reporting guidance received from the Federal Reserve. In October 2011, the Company was advised by the Federal Reserve that, based on their further review concerning the application of pre-existing regulatory policy, the Company should adjust its capital treatment for OTC derivatives collateral. In all circumstances, the Company’s calculations have been done consistent with Federal Reserve guidance. Neither the original capital treatment, nor the revision, carry through to Basel III, and as such, the Company’s previously provided estimates of its Tier 1 common ratio under Basel III, currently and by the end of 2012, are not impacted.

At September 30, 2011, book value and tangible book value per common share were $31.29 and $27.79,11 respectively, based on approximately 1.9 billion shares outstanding.

OTHER MATTERS

The effective tax rate from continuing operations for the current quarter was 38.3% compared with 19.1% in the prior year third quarter.12 The increase in the tax rate from the prior year primarily reflected the change in the geographic mix of earnings.

Morgan Stanley’s Board of Directors declared a $0.05 quarterly dividend per common share. The dividend is payable on November 15, 2011 to common shareholders of record on October 31, 2011.

1 Includes preferred dividends and other adjustments related to the calculation of earnings per share of approximately $46 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2011 and $222 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2010. Refer to page 3 of Morgan Stanley’s Financial Supplement accompanying this release for the calculation of earnings per share.

2 Represents the change in the fair value of certain of Morgan Stanley’s long-term and short-term borrowings resulting from fluctuations in its credit spreads and other credit factors (commonly referred to as “DVA”).

3 Due to DVA, sales and trading net revenue for the quarter ended September 30, 2011 included positive revenue of $3.4 billion (fixed income: $2.8 billion; equity: $0.6 billion) and sales and trading net revenue for the quarter ended September 30, 2010 included negative revenue of $731 million (fixed income: $464 million; equity: $196 million; other: $71 million).

4 Discontinued operations for the current quarter primarily reflected additional tax benefits associated with the sale of the retail asset management business to Invesco Ltd.

6 Pre-tax margin and Tier 1 common ratios are non-GAAP financial measures that the Firm considers to be useful measures that the Firm and investors use to assess operating performance and capital adequacy. Pre-tax margin represents income (loss) from continuing operations before taxes, divided by net revenues. The Tier 1 common ratio equals Tier 1 capital (see note 10) less qualifying perpetual preferred stock and qualifying restricted core capital elements, such as qualifying trust preferred securities and qualifying non controlling interests, adjusted for the portion of goodwill and non-servicing intangible assets associated with MSSB non controlling interests divided by risk-weighted assets.

7 Morgan Stanley owns 51% of MSSB, which is consolidated. The results related to the 49% interest retained by Citigroup Inc. are reported in net income (loss) applicable to non controlling interests on page 9 of Morgan Stanley’s Financial Supplement accompanying this release.

8 Results for the third quarter of 2011 and 2010 included a pre-tax loss of $17 million and pre-tax income of $195 million, respectively, related to principal investments held by certain consolidated real estate funds. The limited partnership interests in these funds are reported in net income (loss) applicable to non controlling interests on page 11 of Morgan Stanley’s Financial Supplement accompanying this release.

9 Results for the current quarter included losses of $13 million compared with gains of $203 million in the prior year quarter related to principal investments held by certain consolidated real estate funds.

10 The Firm calculates its Tier 1 capital ratio and risk-weighted assets in accordance with the capital adequacy standards for financial holding companies adopted by the Federal Reserve Board. These standards are based upon a framework described in the International Convergence of Capital Measurement and Capital Standards, July 1988, as amended, also referred to as Basel I. The definition of Tier 1 common equity may evolve in the future as regulatory rules may be implemented based on a final proposal regarding non controlling interest as initially presented by the Basel Committee. These computations are preliminary estimates as of October 19, 2011 (the date of this release) and could be subject to revision in Morgan Stanley’s Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended September 30, 2011.

11 Tangible common equity and Tangible book value per common share are non-GAAP financial measures that the Company considers to be useful measures of capital adequacy. Tangible common equity equals common equity less goodwill and intangible assets net of allowable mortgage servicing rights deduction and including only the Company’s share of MSSB’s goodwill and intangible assets. Tangible book value per common share equals tangible common equity divided by period-end common shares outstanding.

12 The quarter ended September 30, 2010 included a tax gain of $176 million associated with the repatriation of non-U.S. earnings at a cost lower than originally estimated. Excluding the discrete tax gain, the effective tax rate for the quarter would have been 19.1%.
