SALT LAKE CITY--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Zions Bancorporation, N.A. (NASDAQ: ZION) ("Zions" or "the Bank") today reported net earnings applicable to common shareholders for the second quarter of 2022 of $195 million, or $1.29 per diluted common share, compared with net earnings applicable to common shareholders of $345 million, or $2.08 per diluted common share, for the second quarter of 2021, and net earnings applicable to common shareholders of $195 million, or $1.27 per diluted common share, for the first quarter of 2022.
Harris H. Simmons, Chairman and CEO of Zions Bancorporation, commented, “In the second quarter, we built on recent loan growth momentum, with average non-PPP loans increasing $1.5 billion, or an annualized 12%. Customer-related noninterest income was also strong with year-over-year improvement of 11%. Adjusted revenue increased nearly 8% over the prior year, despite a significant reduction in PPP revenue as that portfolio runs off. Excluding the impact of PPP, adjusted revenue increased nearly 17% over the prior year.”
Mr. Simmons continued, “We are particularly pleased with the credit performance of the loan portfolio. Our net charge-off ratio was an annualized 0.07% of average loans, and our nonperforming asset ratio fell to a very clean 0.4% of loans. Also, for the first time in several decades, our real estate owned figure was zero. We are well prepared for the possibility of a recession with solid credit quality and capital, and strong pre-provision net revenue growth.”
