NEW YORK, July 29, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Federal Home Loan Bank of New York ("Bank") today released its unaudited financial highlights for the quarter ended June 30, 2013.
"Our members rely on the Federal Home Loan Bank of New York as a stable source of funding in all market environments," said Alfred A. DelliBovi, president and CEO of the Bank. "Through the first half of 2013, our performance has reflected this stability. In the second quarter, we continued to produce solid results; strengthened our foundation by growing our retained earnings; and remained a reliable source of funding for our members. Members utilized a variety of our programs, including our Hurricane Sandy Disaster Relief Funding Program, in order to put our advances to work in the communities we all serve."
Highlights from the second quarter of 2013 include:
- Net income for the quarter was $84.5 million, a decrease of $2 million, or two percent, from net income of $86.5 million for the second quarter of 2012. Return on average equity ("ROE") for the quarter was 6.18 percent, compared to ROE of 6.75 percent for the second quarter of 2012.
- As of June 30, 2013, total assets were $117.1 billion, an increase of $15.2 billion, or 15 percent, from total assets of $101.9 billion at March 31, 2013. As of June 30, 2013, advances were $84.7 billion, an increase of $13 billion, or 18 percent, from $71.7 billion at March 31, 2013. The increase in advances was primarily driven by the borrowing activity of one member toward the end of the quarter. Average advances were $73.8 billion for the second quarter of 2013, an increase of one percent from the first quarter. Average assets were $105.2 billion for the second quarter of 2013, an increase of one percent from the first quarter. Asset yields were lower during the quarter as compared with the second quarter of 2012, as advances rolled over at lower interest rates and some MBS were paid down.
- As of June 30, 2013, total capital was $6.1 billion, an increase of $750 million, or 14 percent, from March 31, 2013. The Bank's unrestricted retained earnings grew during the quarter by $21.6 million to $822.4 million as of June 30, 2013. The Bank also increased its restricted retained earnings by $16.9 million during the quarter to $127.1 million as of June 30, 2013. At June 30, 2013, the Bank met its regulatory capital-to-assets ratios and liquidity requirements.
The Bank currently expects to file its Form 10-Q for the second quarter of 2013 with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission on or before August 9, 2013.
