BNY Mellon Reports First Quarter Loss of $0.23 Per Common Share; EPS of $0.50 Excluding the Previously Announced Charge Related to the Disallowance of Certain Tax Credits (a)

NEW YORK, April 17, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

INVESTMENT MANAGEMENT AND PERFORMANCE FEES UP 10% YEAR-OVER-YEAR

  • Assets under management up 9% year-over-year
  • Record net long-term inflows of $40 billion in 1Q13

ASSET SERVICING FEES UP 3% YEAR-OVER-YEAR

AS PREVIOUSLY ANNOUNCED, BOARD APPROVED A COMMON STOCK DIVIDEND INCREASE OF 15% AND THE REPURCHASE OF UP TO $1.35 BILLION OF COMMON STOCK

The Bank of New York Mellon Corporation ("BNY Mellon") (NYSE: BK) today reported a first quarter net loss applicable to common shareholders of $266 million, or $0.23 per diluted common share, which included a previously announced charge of $854 million, or $0.73 per common share, related to the U.S. Tax Court's disallowance of certain foreign tax credits.  Excluding this charge, net income applicable to common shareholders was $588 million and earnings per diluted common share was $0.50.  This compares with income of $619 million, or $0.52 per diluted common share, in the first quarter of 2012 and income of $622 million, or $0.53 per diluted common share, in the fourth quarter of 2012. 

"We remain focused on our key priorities: investing in our businesses to drive organic growth and sustainable shareholder value; controlling discretionary expenses; maintaining a strong balance sheet and returning capital to shareholders," said Gerald L. Hassell, chairman and chief executive officer of BNY Mellon.

"We are pleased to report our fourteenth consecutive quarter of net long-term asset management flows, and continued growth in investment services fees," added Mr. Hassell.  "Investments in our Investment Management, Global Collateral Services and Global Markets businesses have positioned us well for future growth, and we remain on track to deliver the savings from our operational excellence initiatives." 

"Finally, the earnings power and strength of our business model allowed us to announce a capital plan that includes share repurchases of up to $1.35 billion, a 16% increase from the prior year's board authorization, and a 15% increase in the quarterly dividend to 15 cents per share beginning in the second quarter," concluded Mr. Hassell.

  • Assets under custody and/or administration ("AUC/A") amounted to $26.3 trillion at March 31, 2013, an increase of 2% compared with the prior year and unchanged sequentially.  The year-over-year increase was driven by net new business and improved market values, partially offset by the impact of changes in foreign currency rates.  Sequentially, improved market values were offset by the impact of changes in foreign currency rates, while net new business was flat.  Assets under management ("AUM") amounted to a record $1.4 trillion at March 31, 2013, an increase of 9% compared with the prior year and 3% sequentially.  Both increases primarily resulted from net new business and higher market values.  Long-term inflows totaled a record $40 billion and short-term outflows totaled $13 billion for the first quarter of 2013.  Long-term inflows benefited from liability-driven investments as well as equity and fixed income funds.
  • Investment services fees totaled $1.7 billion, an increase of 1% year-over-year and 4% sequentially.  Both increases were primarily driven by higher asset servicing revenue as a result of increased activity with existing clients and improved market values.  The year-over-year increase also reflects higher treasury and clearing services revenue, partially offset by lower issuer services and securities lending revenue.  The sequential increase also reflects higher issuer and clearing services revenue.
  • Investment management and performance fees were $822 million, an increase of 10% year-over-year and a decrease of 4% sequentially.  The year-over-year increase was impacted by the acquisition of the remaining 50% interest in Meriten Investment Management ("Meriten").  Excluding the Meriten acquisition, investment management and performance fees increased 9% year-over-year driven by higher market values, net new business and lower money market fee waivers.  The sequential decrease reflects seasonally lower performance fees and higher money market fee waivers, partially offset by higher market values.  Comparisons to both prior periods were negatively impacted by the stronger U.S. dollar.
  • Foreign exchange and other trading revenue totaled $161 million compared with $191 million in the first quarter of 2012 and $139 million in the fourth quarter of 2012.  In the first quarter of 2013, foreign exchange revenue totaled $149 million, an increase of 10% year-over-year and 41% sequentially.  The year-over-year increase primarily reflects higher volumes, partially offset by a decrease in volatility, while the sequential increase primarily reflects increased volatility and higher volumes.  Other trading revenue was $12 million in the first quarter of 2013 compared with $55 million in first quarter of 2012 and $33 million in the fourth quarter of 2012.  Other trading revenue was lower principally due to losses on interest rate hedges and lower fixed income and equity trading.
  • Investment and other income totaled $72 million compared with $139 million in the first quarter of 2012 and $116 million in the fourth quarter of 2012.  Both decreases reflect lower leasing gains and lower foreign currency remeasurement.  Additionally, the year-over-year decrease includes lower seed capital gains and the sequential decrease includes lower net gains on loans held for sale retained from a previously divested bank subsidiary.
  • Net interest revenue and the net interest margin (FTE) were $719 million and 1.11% compared with $765 million and 1.32% in the first quarter of 2012 and $725 million and 1.09% in the fourth quarter of 2012.  The year-over-year decrease in net interest revenue was primarily driven by lower accretion, lower yields on the reinvestment of securities and the elimination of interest on European Central Bank deposits, partially offset by a change in the mix of earning assets and higher average interest-earning assets driven by higher deposit levels.  The sequential decrease primarily reflects a lower number of days in the first quarter of 2013.

    The decrease in net interest margin (FTE) compared with the first quarter of 2012 primarily reflects higher average interest-earning assets driven by higher deposits levels, lower reinvestment yields, lower accretion and the elimination of interest on European Central Bank deposits. 
  • The net unrealized pre-tax gain on our total investment securities portfolio was $2.2 billion at March 31, 2013 compared with $2.4 billion at Dec. 31, 2012.  The decrease in the net unrealized pre-tax gain was primarily driven by an increase in market interest rates and $48 million of net realized securities gains in the first quarter of 2013.  The low rate environment creates the opportunity for us to realize gains as we rebalance and manage the duration risk of the investment securities portfolio.  Gains realized on these sales should be considered along with net interest revenue when evaluating our overall results.  In the first quarter of 2013, combined net interest revenue and net securities gains totaled $767 million, compared with $805 million in the first quarter of 2012 and $775 million in the fourth quarter of 2012.

The provision for credit losses was a credit of $24 million in the first quarter of 2013.  Approximately half of the credit was driven by a broad improvement in the credit quality of the loan portfolio and half related to a reduction in our qualitative allowance.  The provision for credit losses was $5 million in the first quarter of 2012 and a credit of $61 million in the fourth quarter of 2012.

  • Total noninterest expense increased 6% year-over-year and 1% sequentially excluding amortization of intangible assets, M&I, litigation and restructuring (Non-GAAP).  Both increases were primarily driven by a provision for administrative errors in certain offshore tax-exempt funds and higher pension expense.  The year-over-year increase also resulted from the cost of generating certain tax credits, higher software and net occupancy expense and the impact of the Meriten acquisition.  The sequential increase also reflects higher incentive expense due to the acceleration of the vesting of long-term stock awards for retirement eligible employees, partially offset by lower professional, legal and other purchased services, as well as lower compensation expense and business development expenses.

The provision for income taxes totaled $1.0 billion and includes the $854 million charge related to the disallowance of certain foreign tax credits.  Excluding this charge, the effective tax rate on an operating basis – Non-GAAP was 24% in the first quarter of 2013.

(c)   The Federal Reserve's Notices of Proposed Rulemaking ("NPRs") require the Tier 1 common equity ratio to be the lower of the Standardized Approach or Advanced Approach.  At March 31, 2013, this ratio was 9.4% under the Standardized Approach compared with 9.7% under the Advanced Approach.  For all periods prepared under the NPRs prior to March 31, 2013, this ratio was higher under the Standardized Approach, and therefore was presented under the Advanced Approach.  The estimated Basel III Tier 1 common equity ratio of 7.6% at March 31, 2012 was based on prior Basel III guidance and the proposed market risk rule.

(d)   See "Supplemental information – Explanation of Non-GAAP financial measures" beginning on page 10 for a calculation of these ratios.

(e)   In the first quarter of 2013, BNY Mellon was required to implement the Basel 2.5 – final market risk rule.  Implementation of these rules resulted in an approximately 35-40 basis points decrease to the Basel I Tier 1 common equity to risk-weighted assets ratio, the Basel I Tier 1 capital ratio and the Basel I Total capital ratio.

Dividends (common) – As previously disclosed on April 9, 2013, The Bank of New York Mellon Corporation announced a 15% increase in the quarterly common stock dividend, from $0.13 per share to $0.15 per share.  This cash dividend is payable on May 7, 2013 to shareholders of record as of the close of business on April 29, 2013. 

Dividends (preferred) – As previously disclosed on April 9, 2013, The Bank of New York Mellon Corporation also declared dividends for the dividend period ending in June 2013 of $1,022.22 per share on the Series A Noncumulative Perpetual Preferred Stock, liquidation preference $100,000 per share (the "Series A Preferred Stock") (equivalent to approximately $10.22 per Normal Preferred Capital Security of Mellon Capital IV, referred to below, each representing 1/100th interest in a share of Series A Preferred Stock), and $1,300.00 per share on the Series C Noncumulative Perpetual Preferred Stock, liquidation preference $100,000 per share (the "Series C Preferred Stock") (equivalent to approximately $0.33 per depositary share, each representing a 1/4,000th interest in a share of the Series C Preferred Stock), payable on June 20, 2013 to holders of record as of the close of business on June 5, 2013.  All of the outstanding shares of the Series A Preferred Stock are owned by Mellon Capital IV, which will pass through the June dividend on the Series A Preferred Stock on a proportionate basis to the holders of record, as of the close of business on June 5, 2013, of its Normal Preferred Capital Securities.  All of the outstanding shares of the Series C Preferred Stock are held by the depositary of the depositary shares, which will pass through the June dividend on the Series C Preferred Stock on a proportionate basis to the holders of record, as of the close of business on June 5, 2013, of the depositary shares.

Supplemental information – Explanation of Non-GAAP financial measures

BNY Mellon has included in this Earnings Release certain Non-GAAP financial measures based upon Tier 1 common equity and tangible common shareholders' equity.  BNY Mellon believes that the ratio of Tier 1 common equity to risk-weighted assets and the ratio of tangible common shareholders' equity to tangible assets of operations are measures of capital strength that provide additional useful information to investors, supplementing the Tier 1 and Total capital ratios which are utilized by regulatory authorities.  The ratio of Basel I Tier 1 common equity to risk-weighted assets excludes preferred stock and trust preferred securities from the numerator of the ratio.  Unlike the Basel I Tier 1 and Total capital ratios, the tangible common shareholders' equity ratio fully incorporates those changes in investment securities valuations which are reflected in total shareholders' equity.  In addition, this ratio is expressed as a percentage of the actual book value of assets, as opposed to a percentage of a risk-based reduced value established in accordance with regulatory requirements, although BNY Mellon in its calculation has excluded certain assets which are given a zero percent risk-weighting for regulatory purposes.  Further, BNY Mellon believes that the return on tangible common equity measure, which excludes goodwill and intangible assets net of deferred tax liabilities, is a useful additional measure for investors because it presents a measure of BNY Mellon's performance in reference to those assets which are productive in generating income.  BNY Mellon has provided a measure of tangible book value per share, which it believes provides additional useful information as to the level of such assets in relation to shares of common stock outstanding.  BNY Mellon has presented its estimated Basel III Tier 1 common equity ratio on a basis that is representative of how it currently understands the Basel III rules.  Management views the Basel III Tier 1 common equity ratio as a key measure in monitoring BNY Mellon's capital position.  Additionally, the presentation of the Basel III Tier 1 common equity ratio allows investors to compare BNY Mellon's Basel III Tier 1 common equity ratio with estimates presented by other companies.

BNY Mellon has presented revenue measures which exclude the effect of noncontrolling interests related to consolidated investment management funds; expense measures which exclude M&I expenses, litigation charges, restructuring charges and amortization of intangible assets; as well as earnings per share and the provision for income taxes which exclude the charge related to the disallowance of certain foreign tax credits; and investment management fees excluding the impact of the acquisition of Meriten.  Return on equity measures and operating margin measures, which exclude some or all of these items, are also presented.  BNY Mellon believes that these measures are useful to investors because they permit a focus on period-to-period comparisons which relate to the ability of BNY Mellon to enhance revenues and limit expenses in circumstances where such matters are within BNY Mellon's control.  The excluded items in general relate to certain ongoing charges as a result of prior transactions or where we have incurred charges.  M&I expenses primarily relate to the acquisitions of Global Investment Servicing on July 1, 2010 and BHF Asset Servicing GmbH on Aug. 2, 2010.  M&I expenses generally continue for approximately three years after the transaction and can vary on a year-to-year basis depending on the stage of the integration.  BNY Mellon believes that the exclusion of M&I expenses provides investors with a focus on BNY Mellon's business as it would appear on a consolidated going-forward basis, after such M&I expenses have ceased.  Future periods will not reflect such M&I expenses, and thus may be more easily compared with our current results if M&I expenses are excluded.  Litigation charges represent accruals for loss contingencies that are both probable and reasonably estimable, but exclude standard business-related legal fees.  Restructuring charges relate to our operational excellence initiatives and migrating positions to global delivery centers.  Excluding these charges permits investors to view expenses on a basis consistent with how management views the business.

In this Earnings Release, the net interest margin is presented on an FTE basis.  We believe that this presentation provides comparability of amounts arising from both taxable and tax-exempt sources, and is consistent with industry practice.  The adjustment to an FTE basis has no impact on net income. 

Each of these measures as described above is used by management to monitor financial performance, both on a company-wide and business-level basis.

(a)   The Federal Reserve's Notices of Proposed Rulemaking ("NPRs") require the Tier 1 common equity ratio to be the lower of the Standardized Approach or Advanced Approach.  At March 31, 2013, this ratio was 9.4% under the Standardized Approach compared with 9.7% under the Advanced Approach.  For all periods prepared under the NPRs prior to March 31, 2013, this ratio was higher under the Standardized Approach, and therefore was presented under the Advanced Approach.  The estimated Basel III Tier 1 common equity ratio at March 31, 2012 was based on our interpretation of prior Basel III guidance and the proposed market risk rule.

(b)   Preliminary.

(c)    The NPRs and prior Basel III guidance do not add back to capital the adjustment to other comprehensive income that Basel I makes for pension liabilities and available-for-sale securities.  Also, under the NPRs and prior Basel III guidance, pension assets recorded on the balance sheet and adjustments related to equity method investments are a deduction from capital.

(d)   Primary differences between risk-weighted assets determined under Basel I compared with the NPRs and prior Basel III guidance include:  the determination of credit risk under Basel I uses predetermined risk weights and asset classes and relies in part on the use of external credit ratings, while the NPRs use, in addition to the broader range of predetermined risk weights and asset classes, certain alternatives to external credit ratings.  Securitization exposure receives a higher risk-weighting under the NPRs and prior Basel III guidance than Basel I; also, the NPRs and prior Basel III guidance include additional adjustments for operational risk, market risk, counterparty credit risk and equity exposures.

N/A – Not applicable.
