CHARLOTTE, N.C.--()--Bank of America Corporation today reported net income of $2.0 billion, or $0.15 per diluted share, for the fourth quarter of 2011, compared with a net loss of $1.2 billion, or $0.16 per diluted share in the year-ago period. Revenue, net of interest expense, on a fully taxable-equivalent (FTE)1 basis rose 11 percent to $25.1 billion.

For the full year, the company reported net income of $1.4 billion, or $0.01 per diluted share, compared with a net loss of $2.2 billion, or $0.37 per diluted share in 2010. Revenue, net of interest expense, on an FTE basis1 declined 15 percent to $94.4 billion.

"We enter 2012 stronger and more efficient after two years of simplifying and streamlining our company," said Chief Executive Officer Brian Moynihan. "We built our capital ratios to record levels during 2011 on the strength of our core businesses and by shedding those that are not core to serving customers and clients. I am proud of our team and their ability to serve our customers well while transforming the company."

“Our fourth-quarter results reflect the aggressive steps we have been taking to strengthen the balance sheet and position the company for long-term growth," said Chief Financial Officer Bruce Thompson. “During the quarter, we significantly increased capital and liquidity. Our Tier 1 common equity ratio increased to 9.86 percent from 8.65 percent in the third quarter of 2011, and our time-to-required funding increased to 29 months from 27 months. For 2012, our focus is to continue to build capital and liquidity and manage expenses."

“Reflecting a gradually improving economy,” continued Moynihan, "we saw solid business activity by companies of all sizes, with commercial and industrial loan balances rising 13 percent from the fourth quarter of 2010, and small business loan originations increasing approximately 20 percent in calendar year 2011."

  • The company continued to focus on strengthening its risk culture in 2011, driving accountability more deeply into the company, and simplifying the organization by selling non-core assets and businesses.
  • The provision for credit losses declined 43 percent from the year-ago quarter, reflecting improved credit quality across all major consumer and commercial portfolios and underwriting changes implemented over the past several years.
  • The allowance for loan and lease losses to annualized net charge-off coverage ratio increased in the fourth quarter to 2.10 times, compared with 1.74 times in the third quarter of 2011 and 1.56 times in the fourth quarter of 2010.

Phase 2 evaluations, which began in the fourth quarter of 2011, are expected to continue into early 2012 and cover the balance of businesses and operations that were not evaluated in Phase 1.

  • The mortgage servicing portfolio declined to $1.8 trillion at the end of 2011 from $1.9 trillion at the end of the third quarter of 2011 and $2.1 trillion at the end of 2010 as the company continued to reduce the size of this portfolio.

n/m = not meaningful

Business Highlights

  • Average deposit balances increased $4.0 billion from the year-ago quarter, driven by growth in liquid products in a low-rate environment. The rates paid on deposits declined 12 basis points to 0.23 percent in the fourth quarter of 2011 from 0.35 percent in the year-ago quarter due to pricing discipline and a shift in the mix of deposits.
  • The number of mobile banking customers continued to grow in 2011, with total mobile banking customers increasing 45 percent from a year ago to 9.2 million customers.

Financial Overview

Deposits reported net income of $141 million, up $341 million from the year-ago quarter, largely due to lower noninterest expense and higher revenue.

Revenue of $3.1 billion was up $77 million from the year-ago quarter, driven by higher noninterest income. Net interest income of $2.0 billion was relatively flat from the year-ago quarter.

Noninterest expense was down $472 million from the year-ago quarter to $2.8 billion primarily due to litigation expense in the year-ago quarter and a decrease in operating expenses partially offset by elevated FDIC expense.

Business Highlights

  • New U.S. credit card accounts grew 53 percent in the fourth quarter of 2011 as compared to the year-ago quarter.
  • Credit quality continued to improve with the 30+ day delinquency rate declining for the 11th consecutive quarter.
  • Return on average equity remained strong at 19.69 percent in the fourth quarter of 2011.

Financial Overview

Card Services reported net income of $1.0 billion, compared to $1.3 billion in the year-ago quarter. The decrease in net income is due to lower revenue, partially offset by lower credit costs.

Revenue declined 24 percent to $4.1 billion from the year-ago quarter, driven by a decrease in net interest income of $647 million from lower average loans and yields. Also contributing to the decline in revenue was lower noninterest income due to the implementation of new interchange fee rules in the fourth quarter of 2011 as a result of the Durbin Amendment, which reduced revenue by $430 million. Average loans declined $15.6 billion from the year-ago quarter due to higher payment volumes, charge-offs, continued non-core portfolio runoff and divestitures.

Provision for credit losses decreased $708 million from the year-ago quarter to $1.1 billion, reflecting improving delinquencies and collections, and fewer bankruptcies as a result of improving economic conditions and lower loan balances.

2 Total client balances are defined as assets under management, assets in custody, client brokerage assets, client deposits and loans.

Business Highlights

  • Asset management fees increased 4 percent from the year-ago quarter to $1.5 billion, driven by strong long-term assets under management flows of $27 billion in 2011, compared to $14 billion in 2010.
  • Full-year average deposit balances increased 10 percent from 2010 to $254.8 billion, and full-year average loan balances grew 3 percent to $102.1 billion.

Financial Overview

Global Wealth and Investment Management net income decreased 22 percent from the year-ago quarter. Revenue was flat compared to the year-ago quarter at $4.2 billion as higher net interest income and asset management fees were offset by lower transactional activity.

The provision for credit losses decreased $37 million from the year-ago quarter, reflecting fewer delinquencies and improving portfolio trends within the consumer real estate portfolios, partially offset by increased reserves in the commercial portfolio.

Noninterest expense increased 5 percent from the year-ago quarter to $3.6 billion, due primarily to higher personnel costs associated with the continued build-out of the business, and certain expenses in the fourth quarter of 2011, including elevated FDIC expense, litigation and other related losses and severance costs. These were partially offset by lower revenue-related compensation.

Business Highlights

  • The company funded $22.4 billion in residential home loans and home equity loans during the fourth quarter of 2011.
  • The company continued to make progress on legacy issues. The mortgage servicing portfolio declined to $1.8 trillion at the end of 2011 from $1.9 trillion at the end of the third quarter of 2011 and $2.1 trillion at the end of fourth quarter of 2010. The number of 60+ day delinquent first mortgage loans serviced by Legacy Asset Servicing declined to 1.1 million at the end of the fourth quarter of 2011 from 1.2 million at the end of the third quarter of 2011 and 1.4 million at the end of the fourth quarter of 2010.

Financial Overview

Consumer Real Estate Services reported a net loss of $1.5 billion for the fourth quarter of 2011, compared to a net loss of $4.9 billion for the same period in 2010. Revenue increased from $480 million in the fourth quarter of 2010 to $3.3 billion.

The increase in revenue was primarily driven by a $3.9 billion decrease in representations and warranties provision and a $908 million increase in MSR results, net of hedge, partially offset by a $1.1 billion decline in core production income and lower insurance income due to the sale of Balboa Insurance during the second quarter of 2011. The decrease in core production income was due to a 74 percent decline in new loan originations caused primarily by the exit from the correspondent lending channel and a decrease in retail market share.

Representations and warranties provision was $263 million in the fourth quarter of 2011, compared to $4.1 billion in the fourth quarter of 2010 which included the impact of the settlement agreements with the GSEs.

Provision for credit losses in the fourth quarter of 2011 decreased $197 million from the year-ago quarter to $1.0 billion, reflecting improving delinquencies.

Noninterest expense, excluding a goodwill impairment charge of $2.0 billion in the fourth quarter of 2010, increased 15 percent to $4.6 billion. The increase reflected higher litigation expense of $1.5 billion in the fourth quarter of 2011, compared to $632 million in the same period in 2010, as well as higher default-related and other loss mitigation expenses. This was partially offset by lower production and insurance expenses and lower mortgage-related assessments and waivers costs associated with foreclosure delays.

Business Highlights

  • Average commercial and industrial loans grew $4 billion, or 4 percent, from the year-ago quarter driven by middle-market clients.
  • Credit quality continued to improve as nonperforming assets declined by $3.1 billion, or 35 percent, and total reservable criticized loans declined by $12.6 billion, or 38 percent, versus the year-ago quarter.

Financial Overview

Global Commercial Banking reported net income of $1.0 billion, flat from the year-ago quarter, reflecting a reduction in revenue, partially offset by lower credit costs from improved asset quality. Revenue was $2.6 billion, down 2 percent from the year-ago quarter, primarily due to lower loan balances. Noninterest expense was $1.0 billion, down 2 percent from the year-ago quarter as the business tightly managed costs.

The provision for credit losses was relatively flat compared to the year-ago quarter with a benefit of $146 million.

Average deposit balances continued to grow, increasing by $19.3 billion from the year-ago quarter, as clients continued to maintain higher levels of liquidity. Average commercial and industrial loan balances continued to show modest growth, increasing 4 percent from a year ago. However, total average loans and leases decreased $7.4 billion primarily due to reductions in the reservable criticized loans in the commercial real estate banking portfolio.

Business Highlights

  • Average loan and lease balances and average deposit balances increased 30 percent and 10 percent versus the year-ago quarter, primarily driven by strong growth across all regions.
  • Bank of America Merrill Lynch maintained its No. 2 global ranking in net investment banking fees and increased its market share in 2011 to 7.4 percent from 6.8 percent in 2010, excluding self-led deals, as reported by Dealogic. Also, Bank of America Merrill Lynch was named "Top Global Research Firm of 2011" by Institutional Investor.

Financial Overview

Global Banking and Markets reported a net loss of $433 million, compared to net income of $669 million in the year-ago quarter. Revenue declined 31 percent to $3.7 billion, primarily driven by lower sales and trading revenue and investment banking fees.

Noninterest expense of $4.3 billion was relatively flat compared to the year-ago quarter.

Provision for credit losses increased by $85 million from the year-ago quarter to a lower benefit of $27 million. This was due to reduced reserves and the impact from loan growth in the current period.

Sales and trading revenue was $1.4 billion in the fourth quarter of 2011, a decrease of 44 percent from the prior-year quarter. The current quarter includes DVA losses of $474 million as the company's credit spreads tightened at the end of this year, compared to gains of $1.7 billion in the third quarter of 2011 and gains of $31 million in the year-ago period. Excluding the impact of DVA, sales and trading revenue was $1.9 billion in the fourth quarter of 2011, compared to $1.1 billion in the third quarter of 2011 and $2.4 billion in the fourth quarter of 2010.

Fixed Income, Currency and Commodities sales and trading revenue, excluding DVA losses, was $1.2 billion, a decrease of $416 million compared to the prior-year quarter due to a challenging trading environment as markets remain volatile reflecting ongoing concerns over the Eurozone sovereign debt crisis, economic activity, and political uncertainty. Equities sales and trading revenue was $660 million, a decrease of $127 million from the year-ago quarter, primarily driven by lower volumes and commission related revenue.

Firmwide investment banking fees, including self-led deals, declined to $1.1 billion from $1.7 billion in the fourth quarter of 2010, mainly due to challenging market conditions during the second half of 2011 following the U.S. debt downgrade and Eurozone crisis. Twenty-three percent of investment banking fees were originated outside of the Americas, compared to 18 percent for the same period last year. Total investment banking fees, excluding self-led deals, were down 36 percent from the year-ago quarter.

Corporate Bank revenues of $1.3 billion continued to remain strong as average loans and leases increased 29 percent from the year-ago quarter to $107.5 billion with growth in both domestic and international commercial loans and international trade finance. Average deposits within the Corporate Bank increased 10 percent from the fourth quarter of 2010 to $107.1 billion as balances continued to grow from excess market liquidity and limited alternative investment options.

All Other reported net income of $1.4 billion in the fourth quarter of 2011, compared to net income of $563 million for the same period a year ago, due to higher revenue and lower provision for credit losses, partially offset by higher noninterest expense. Revenue increased $2.6 billion due primarily to higher equity investment income, a gain of $1.2 billion in connection with the exchange of trust preferred securities for common stock and senior debt and $814 million of negative fair value adjustments on structured liabilities compared to negative fair value adjustments of $1.2 billion in the year-ago quarter.

Equity investment income was $1.6 billion higher as the current quarter included the gain on the sale of a majority of the company's investment in China Construction Bank (CCB). The increase in noninterest expense was primarily related to a goodwill impairment charge of $581 million during the fourth quarter of 2011 as a result of a change in the estimated value of the European consumer card businesses.

Provision for credit losses decreased $1.3 billion to $793 million, driven primarily by lower reserve additions to the Countrywide purchased credit-impaired discontinued real estate and residential mortgage portfolios, recoveries on the sale of previously charged-off U.K. credit card loans and improvement in portfolio trends in residential mortgage.

1 Fully taxable-equivalent (FTE) basis is a non-GAAP financial measure. For reconciliation to GAAP financial measures, refer to pages 25-27 of this press release. Net interest income on a GAAP basis was $10.7 billion and $12.4 billion for the three months ended December 31, 2011 and 2010 and $44.6 billion and $51.5 billion for the years ended December 31, 2011 and 2010. Total revenue, net of interest expense on a GAAP basis was $24.9 billion and $22.4 billion for the three months ended December 31, 2011 and 2010, and $93.5 billion and $110.2 billion for the years ended December 31, 2011 and 2010.

2 Excludes goodwill impairment charges of $581 million and $2.0 billion in the fourth quarters of 2011 and 2010, and $3.2 billion and $12.4 billion for the years ended December 31, 2011 and 2010, respectively. Noninterest expense, excluding goodwill impairment charges, is a non-GAAP financial measure.

 

Revenue, net of interest expense, on a fully taxable-equivalent (FTE) basis rose 11 percent from the fourth quarter of 2010, reflecting higher noninterest income partially offset by lower net interest income.

Net interest income on an FTE basis decreased 14 percent from the year-ago quarter. The net interest yield fell 24 basis points from the year-ago quarter, driven by lower investment security yields along with reductions in consumer loan balances and yields.

Noninterest income increased $4.2 billion from the year-ago quarter largely due to higher mortgage banking income, equity investment income and other income, partially offset by lower trading account profits and card income. Mortgage banking income increased due to significantly lower representations and warranties provision as compared to the year-ago quarter. Equity investment income was higher as the current quarter included the $2.9 billion gain on sale of a majority of the company's investment in CCB and the increase in other income was primarily related to a $1.2 billion gain recorded during the current quarter from the exchange of trust preferred securities for common stock and senior debt. Trading account profits declined due to a challenging trading environment, and card income was lower due to the impact of implementation of the Durbin Amendment in the fourth quarter of 2011 compared to the fourth quarter of 2010.

Noninterest expense decreased $1.3 billion, or 6 percent from the year-ago quarter, to $19.5 billion primarily due to a goodwill impairment charge of $581 million, compared to $2.0 billion in the year-ago quarter, partially offset by elevated FDIC expense and higher litigation expense in the fourth quarter of 2011. Excluding the goodwill impairment charges, noninterest expense was relatively flat compared to the year-ago quarter.

The tax provision for the fourth quarter of 2011 was $441 million, resulting in an 18.13 percent effective tax rate. The effective tax rate during the quarter included tax benefits from net reductions in a deferred tax asset valuation allowance and tax reserves. Partially offsetting these benefits was the impact of the non-deductible goodwill impairment charge.

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, with net charge-offs declining across all major portfolios, compared to the fourth quarter of 2010. Provision for credit losses decreased significantly from a year ago. Additionally, 30+ day performing delinquent loans, excluding Federal Housing Administration-insured loans and long-term standby agreements, declined across all major portfolios, and reservable criticized balances also continued to decline, down 36 percent from the year-ago period.

Net charge-offs declined to $4.1 billion in the fourth quarter of 2011 from $5.1 billion in the third quarter of 2011 and $6.8 billion in the fourth quarter of 2010, reflecting improvement in all major consumer and commercial portfolios. The decrease was primarily driven by fewer delinquent loans, improved collection rates and lower bankruptcy filings across the Card Services loan portfolio, as well as lower net charge-offs in the home equity portfolio, driven by fewer delinquent loans, and recoveries from the sale of previously charged-off U.K. credit card loans.

The provision for credit losses declined to $2.9 billion in the fourth quarter of 2011 from $3.4 billion in the third quarter of 2011 and $5.1 billion in the fourth quarter of 2010. Results for the fourth quarter of 2011 included reserve reductions of $1.1 billion driven primarily by projected improvement in delinquencies, collections and bankruptcies across the Card Services portfolios and by improvement in economic conditions impacting the core commercial portfolio, as evidenced by continued declines in reservable criticized and nonperforming balances.

The allowance for loan and lease losses to annualized net charge-off coverage ratio increased in the fourth quarter of 2011 to 2.10 times, compared with 1.74 times in the third quarter of 2011 and 1.56 times in the fourth quarter of 2010. Excluding purchased credit-impaired loans, the allowance to annualized net charge-off coverage ratio was 1.57 times, 1.33 times and 1.32 times for the same periods, respectively.

Nonperforming loans, leases and foreclosed properties were $27.7 billion at December 31, 2011, down from $29.1 billion at September 30, 2011, and $32.7 billion at December 31, 2010.

Regulatory capital ratios increased significantly during the fourth quarter, compared to the prior quarter and the fourth quarter of 2010, with the Tier 1 common equity ratio at 9.86 percent, and the Tangible common equity ratio at 6.64 percent. This compares with a Tier 1 common equity ratio of 8.65 percent at September 30, 2011 and 8.60 percent at December 31, 2010, and a Tangible common equity ratio of 6.25 percent at September 30, 2011 and 5.99 percent at December 31, 2010.

Significant capital actions taken during the quarter that contributed to these increases were the exchange of preferred and trust preferred securities for 400 million shares of common stock and $2.3 billion of senior debt, the sale of CCB shares and the sale of the Canadian consumer card business. Capital planning for 2012 includes the consideration of issuing approximately $1 billion of immediately tradable shares of common stock to certain employees in February 2012 in lieu of a portion of their 2011 year-end cash incentive.

The company's total Global Excess Liquidity Sources increased approximately $42 billion from the end of the fourth quarter of 2010 to $378 billion at December 31, 2011. Time-to-required funding increased to 29 months at the end of 2011 from 27 months at September 30, 2011 and 24 months at December 31, 2010.

During the fourth quarter of 2011, a cash dividend of $0.01 per common share was paid and the company recorded $407 million in preferred dividends. Period-end common shares issued and outstanding were 10.54 billion and 10.09 billion for the fourth quarter of 2011 and 2010, reflecting the issuance of 400 million common shares in the exchanges of preferred and trust preferred securities for common stock and senior debt.

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 plus any Common Equivalent Securities 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 plus any Common Equivalent Securities 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. 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, and $2.0 billion and $10.4 billion recorded in the fourth and third quarters of 2010. Accordingly, these are non-GAAP financial measures.

 

See the tables below and on pages 25-26 for reconciliations of these non-GAAP financial measures with financial measures defined by GAAP for the three months ended December 31, 2011, September 30, 2011 and December 31, 2010, and the years ended December 31, 2011 and 2010. 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.
