KeyCorp Reports Second Quarter 2013 Net Income of $193 Million, or $.21 Per Common Share Efficiency initiative results in achieved annualized run rate savings of approximately $171 million through the second quarter of 2013

CLEVELAND, July 18, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- KeyCorp (NYSE: KEY) today announced second quarter net income from continuing operations attributable to Key common shareholders of $193 million, or $.21 per common share, compared to $196 million, or $.21 per common share for the first quarter of 2013, and $217 million, or $.23 per common share for the second quarter of 2012.   During the second quarter, Key incurred $37 million, or $.03 per common share of costs associated with its previously announced efficiency initiative.

For the six months ended June 30, 2013, net income from continuing operations attributable to Key common shareholders was $389 million, or $.42 per common share, compared to $412 million, or $.43 per common share for the same period one year ago. During the first half of 2013, Key incurred $52 million, or $.04 per common share of costs related to its efficiency initiative.

CURRENT QUARTER DEVELOPMENTS

Executing on growth initiatives

  • Acquiring a commercial mortgage servicing portfolio and special servicing business, building scale and becoming one of the top three largest named servicers of commercial/multifamily loans in the U.S. and the fifth largest special servicer of CMBS (Initial closing completed in June; final closing expected in July)
  • Expanded mobile offering with the launch of new remote deposit capabilities for both consumer and commercial clients

Continued progress on efficiency initiative

  • Achieved annualized run rate savings of approximately $171 million through the second quarter of 2013
  • Recognized expenses of $37 million, or $.03 per common share associated with efficiency initiative during the second quarter of 2013
  • Cash efficiency ratio of 69.06%, and adjusted cash efficiency ratio net of efficiency initiative charges of 65.42% for the second quarter of 2013
  • Consolidated 33 branches during the second quarter of 2013
  • Realigned Community Bank organization around core relationship strategy to drive profitability

Focused on capital management priorities

  • Repurchased $112 million of common shares during the second quarter of 2013
  • Increased common share dividend by 10% to $.055 per common share

"During the second quarter, the strength of our business model continued to drive results. Key made clear progress implementing growth initiatives, improving its cost structure and executing capital priorities," said Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Beth Mooney.

"Compared to the first quarter, cautious client behavior led to slower loan growth, higher levels of liquidity for Key and greater than anticipated pressure on our net interest margin. Despite the challenging economic backdrop, Key was able to produce slight increases in both loans and revenue and control expenses. Further, we stayed true to our commitment of disciplined capital management by repurchasing $112 million in common shares and increasing our dividend by 10%," continued Mooney.

Mooney added: "To maintain and enhance our growth, we also continued to invest in our businesses. We are in the process of acquiring a commercial mortgage servicing portfolio and special servicing business that will significantly enhance our scale and presence in the market. We also launched new mobile capabilities that add accessibility and functionality for both our consumer and commercial clients. Our efficiency initiative, which began in June 2012, remains on target to reach our goal of $200 million in annualized savings by the end of the year. Through the second quarter of 2013, we have achieved approximately $171 million of the targeted savings."

TE = Taxable Equivalent
































Taxable-equivalent net interest income was $586 million for the second quarter of 2013, and the net interest margin was 3.13%.  These results compare to taxable-equivalent net interest income of $544 million and a net interest margin of 3.06% for the second quarter of 2012.  The increase in the net interest margin was primarily a result of a change in funding mix from the redemption of certain trust preferred securities, maturity of long-term debt, and maturity of higher-costing certificates of deposit over the past year.

Compared to the first quarter of 2013, taxable-equivalent net interest income decreased by $3 million, and the net interest margin declined by 11 basis points.  The decrease in net interest income was primarily due to lower replacement yields on new loans and investments as compared to the yield on maturing loans and investments.  This decline was partially offset by an increase in average earning asset balances and a higher day count in the second quarter.  The decline in the net interest margin was largely attributable to a six basis point impact from lower loan yields and fees as well as a five basis point impact from higher levels of liquidity and securities. The net interest margin was also negatively impacted by approximately two basis points from the termination and maturity of $4.4 billion of interest rate swaps that were not replaced, as Key continues to increase its asset sensitivity to be better positioned for a rise in short-term interest rates.

Key's noninterest income was $429 million for the second quarter of 2013, compared to $457 million for the year-ago quarter.  Operating lease income and other leasing gains decreased $39 million primarily due to a $31 million gain on the early terminations of leveraged leases one year ago, and net gains (losses) from principal investing decreased by $17 million.  These decreases were partially offset by increases in investment banking and debt placement fees and cards and payments income of $11 million each, and trust and investment services income of $10 million.

Compared to the first quarter of 2013, noninterest income increased by $4 million.  Trust and investment services income, investment banking and debt placement fees, and cards and payments income each increased $5 million. These increases in noninterest income were partially offset by declines in operating lease income and other leasing gains of $4 million and other income of $6 million.

Key's noninterest expense was $711 million for the second quarter of 2013, compared to $693 million for the same period last year.  Excluding the $37 million in expenses related to Key's efficiency initiative and the $26 million in incremental costs associated with acquisitions, noninterest expense was down $45 million compared to the prior year.  Personnel expense increased $29 million due to an increase in severance expense primarily associated with Key's efficiency initiative and higher incentive compensation expense accruals.  Nonpersonnel expense decreased $11 million from one year ago.  Business services and professional fees declined $14 million, and marketing expense and other real estate owned (OREO) expense each decreased $6 million.  These declines were partially offset by an increase in net occupancy of $10 million primarily due to charges related to the consolidation of 33 branches during the second quarter of 2013.   Intangible asset amortization on credit cards and other intangible asset amortization associated with the third quarter 2012 acquisitions of the credit card portfolio and the branches in Western New York also increased $9 million in total.

Compared to the first quarter of 2013, noninterest expense increased by $30 million.  Personnel expense increased $15 million as severance expense was $9 million higher; annual merit and incentive compensation also contributed to the increase.  Nonpersonnel expense also increased $15 million from the first quarter of 2013.  Net occupancy increased $8 million primarily due to charges related to the consolidation of 33 branches during the second quarter of 2013.  Marketing expense also increased $5 million.

BALANCE SHEET HIGHLIGHTS

As of June 30, 2013, Key had total assets of $90.6 billion compared to $89.2 billion at March 31, 2013, and $86.5 billion at June 30, 2012.

(a)   

Commercial, financial and agricultural average balance for the three months ended June 30, 2013 and March 31, 2013 includes $96 million and $91 million, respectively, of assets from commercial credit cards.



Average loans were $52.7 billion for the second quarter of 2013, an increase of $3.3 billion compared to the second quarter of 2012.  Commercial, financial and agricultural loans grew by $2.9 billion over the year-ago quarter, with strong growth across Key's business segments.  In addition, the third quarter 2012 credit card portfolio and Western New York branch acquisitions added $1 billion of mostly consumer loans.  This growth was partially offset by declines in the commercial real estate portfolio, the equipment lease portfolio, which included the early termination of certain leveraged leases in the exit portfolio in 2012, and run-off of consumer loans in the designated exit portfolio. 

Compared to the first quarter of 2013, average loans increased by $70 million.  This average loan growth was attributable to an increase in commercial, financial and agricultural loans and home equity loans, which benefitted from Key's second quarter lending promotion.  This growth in loans was partially offset by a decrease in commercial real estate, commercial lease financing, and other consumer loans.

Average deposits, excluding deposits in foreign office, totaled $64.9 billion for the second quarter of 2013, an increase of $4.6 billion compared to the year-ago quarter.  The growth reflects an increase in demand deposits of $2.7 billion and interest-bearing non-time deposits of $4.2 billion (including the impact of Key's third quarter 2012 Western New York branch acquisition, which added $2 billion of mostly interest-bearing non-time deposits).  This deposit growth was partially offset by $2.3 billion of run-off from one year ago in certificates of deposit and other time deposits.

Compared to the first quarter of 2013, average deposits, excluding deposits in foreign office, increased by $1.7 billion.  This deposit growth was primarily due to an increase in business demand and interest-bearing commercial deposits, reflecting deposits made by some of Key's larger clients.

N/A = Not Applicable


































Key's provision for loan and lease losses was $28 million for the second quarter of 2013, compared to $55 million for the first quarter of 2013 and $21 million for the year-ago quarter.  The decline in the provision for loan and lease losses from the prior quarter reflects Key's current asset quality measures and the quality of its new loan originations.

Key's allowance for loan and lease losses was $876 million, or 1.65% of total period-end loans at June 30, 2013, compared to 1.70% at March 31, 2013, and 1.79% at June 30, 2012.

Net loan charge-offs for the second quarter of 2013 totaled $45 million, or .34% of average total loans.  These results compare to $49 million, or .38% for the first quarter of 2013, and $77 million, or .63% for the same period last year. 

At June 30, 2013, Key's nonperforming loans totaled $652 million and represented 1.23% of period-end portfolio loans, compared to 1.24% at March 31, 2013 and 1.32% at June 30, 2012.  Nonperforming assets at June 30, 2013, totaled $693 million and represented 1.30% of period-end portfolio loans and OREO and other nonperforming assets, compared to 1.34% at March 31, 2013, and 1.51% at June 30, 2012.

The table entitled "GAAP to Non-GAAP Reconciliations" in the attached financial supplement presents the computations of certain financial measures related to "tangible common equity" and "Tier 1 common equity."  The table reconciles the GAAP performance measures to the corresponding non-GAAP measures, which provides a basis for period-to-period comparisons.



As shown in the preceding table, at June 30, 2013, Key's estimated Tier 1 common equity and Tier 1 risk-based capital ratios stood at 11.25% and 12.01%, respectively.  In addition, the tangible common equity ratio was 9.96% at June 30, 2013.

On July 2, 2013 and July 9, 2013, the Federal Reserve and the OCC, respectively, approved a final rule that will implement the Basel III regulatory capital reforms and certain changes required by the Dodd-Frank Act. Consistent with the proposed rule published in August 2012, the final rule increases minimum requirements for both the quantity and quality of capital held by banking organizations and emphasizes Tier 1 common equity.  While the final rule becomes effective in January 2014, the mandatory compliance date for Key begins in January 2015 and is subject to transitional provisions extending to January 2019. Key's estimated Tier 1 common equity as calculated under this final rule was 10.81% at June 30, 2013.  This exceeds the fully phased-in required minimum Tier 1 common equity (including capital conservation buffer) of 7.00%.

As previously reported and as authorized by Key's Board of Directors and pursuant to Key's 2013 capital plan submitted to and not objected to by the Federal Reserve, Key has authority to repurchase up to $426 million of its common shares.  Common share repurchases under the 2013 capital plan authorization are expected to be executed through the first quarter of 2014.  

The after-tax gain on the previously announced Victory divestiture is now expected to be lower than originally projected and in the range of $100 million to $115 million. The cash portion of this gain will be between $75 million and $90 million, and Key has received no objection from the Federal Reserve to use these cash proceeds for common share repurchases.

During the second quarter of 2013, Key completed $112 million of common share repurchases on the open market under Key's share repurchase program.

Key Community Bank Summary of Operations

  • Realigned Community Bank structure and organization and closed 33 branches, resulting in expenses of $11 million in the second quarter of 2013
  • Continued credit card penetration and successful integration of branches in Western New York
  • Eight consecutive quarters of average loan growth
  • Core deposits up $3.8 billion, or 9.7% from the prior year

Key Community Bank recorded net income attributable to Key of $36 million for the second quarter of 2013, compared to $54 million for the year-ago quarter.

Taxable-equivalent net interest income increased by $1 million, or .3% from the second quarter of 2012.  Average loans and leases grew 10.4% while average deposits increased 3.2% from one year ago.  The Western New York branch and credit card portfolio acquisitions contributed $30 million to net interest income, $1 billion to average loans and leases, and $2 billion to deposits.  The positive contribution to net interest income from the acquisitions was partially offset by a lower earnings credit applied to deposits in the current period compared to the same period one year ago as a result of the continued low-rate environment.

Noninterest income increased by $17 million, or 9.4% from the year-ago quarter.  Cards and payments income increased $11 million as a result of the third quarter 2012 credit card portfolio acquisition.  Trust and investment services income increased $7 million, primarily due to an increase in assets under management resulting from strong market performance and increased production.

The provision for loan and lease losses was a charge of $41 million compared to a credit of $4 million for the second quarter of 2012.  Net loan charge-offs, including the 2012 credit card portfolio acquisition, decreased $4 million from the same period one year ago.

Noninterest expense increased by $1 million, or .2% from the year-ago quarter.  Expense reductions resulting from Key's efficiency initiative substantially offset the increase in expenses associated with Key's third quarter 2012 Western New York branch and credit card portfolio acquisitions.

Key Corporate Bank Summary of Operations

  • Investment banking and debt placement fees were up $13 million, or 18.8% from the prior year
  • Average loan balances up 8.6% from the prior year
  • Average deposits up 25.7% from the prior year

Key Corporate Bank recorded net income attributable to Key of $117 million for the second quarter of 2013, compared to $95 million for the same period one year ago. 

Taxable-equivalent net interest income decreased by $1 million, or .5% compared to the second quarter of 2012.  Average earning assets increased $1.5 billion, or 7.2% from the year-ago quarter, driving a $2 million increase in earning asset spread.  Average deposit balances increased $3.2 billion, or 25.7% from the year-ago quarter, driven by the continued execution of health care strategies and increase in public sector deposits.  However, these increases in balances were offset by declines in the deposit spread as a result of the continued low-rate environment.    

Noninterest income increased by $6 million, or 3.3% from the second quarter of 2012.  Investment banking and debt placement fees increased $13 million, partially offset by a decrease in operating lease income and other leasing gains of $8 million compared to the year-ago quarter. 

The provision for loan and lease losses was a credit of $10 million compared to a charge of $4 million for the second quarter of 2012.  There were net loan recoveries of $6 million for the second quarter of 2013 compared to net loan charge-offs of $9 million for the same period one year ago.

Noninterest expense decreased by $11 million, or 5.2% from the second quarter of 2012.  This decline was driven by decreases in professional fees, operating lease expense, and the provision (credit) for losses on lending-related commitments compared to the second quarter of 2012. 

Other Segments

Other Segments consist of Corporate Treasury, Community Development, Key's Principal Investing unit, and various exit portfolios.  Other Segments generated net income attributable to Key of $70 million for the second quarter of 2013, compared to net income attributable to Key of $49 million for the same period last year.  These results were primarily attributable to an increase in net interest income of $44 million and a decrease in the provision for loan and lease losses of $25 million.  These improvements were partially offset by a decline in noninterest income of $52 million primarily due to decreases in operating lease income and other leasing gains of $32 million and net gains (losses) from principal investing of $17 million.

(a)

In April 2009, management decided to wind down the operations of Austin Capital Management, Ltd., a subsidiary that specialized in managing hedge fund investments for institutional customers.  In September 2009, management decided to discontinue the education lending business conducted through Key Education Resources, the education payment and financing unit of KeyBank National Association.  In February 2013, Key decided to sell its investment subsidiary, Victory Capital Management, and its broker-dealer affiliate, Victory Capital Advisors, to a private equity fund.  As a result of these decisions, Key has accounted for these businesses as discontinued operations.

The following table entitled "GAAP to Non-GAAP Reconciliations" presents the computations of certain financial measures related to "tangible common equity,"  "Tier 1 common equity," and "cash efficiency."  The table reconciles the GAAP performance measures to the corresponding non-GAAP measures, which provides a basis for period-to-period comparisons.

GAAP to Non-GAAP Reconciliations


(dollars in millions)




The table below presents certain non-GAAP financial measures related to "tangible common equity," "return on tangible common equity," "Tier 1 common equity," "pre-provision net revenue," "cash efficiency ratio," and "adjusted cash efficiency ratio."




The tangible common equity ratio and the return on tangible common equity ratio have been a focus for some investors, and management believes these ratios may assist investors in analyzing Key's capital position without regard to the effects of intangible assets and preferred stock.  Traditionally, the banking regulators have assessed bank and bank holding company capital adequacy based on both the amount and the composition of capital, the calculation of which is prescribed in federal banking regulations.  Since the commencement of the Comprehensive Capital Analysis and Review process in early 2009, the Federal Reserve has focused its assessment of capital adequacy on a component of Tier 1 risk-based capital known as Tier 1 common equity, a non-GAAP financial measure.  Because the Federal Reserve has long indicated that voting common shareholders' equity (essentially Tier 1 risk-based capital less preferred stock, qualifying capital securities and noncontrolling interests in subsidiaries) generally should be the dominant element in Tier 1 risk-based capital, this focus on Tier 1 common equity is consistent with existing capital adequacy categories.




Tier 1 common equity is neither formally defined by GAAP nor prescribed in amount by federal banking regulations; this measure is considered to be a non-GAAP financial measure.  Since analysts and banking regulators may assess Key's capital adequacy using tangible common equity and Tier 1 common equity, management believes it is useful to enable investors to assess Key's capital adequacy on these same bases.  The table also reconciles the GAAP performance measures to the corresponding non-GAAP measures.







The table also shows the computation for pre-provision net revenue, which is not formally defined by GAAP.  Management believes that eliminating the effects of the provision for loan and lease losses makes it easier to analyze the results by presenting them on a more comparable basis.







The cash efficiency ratio and the adjusted cash efficiency ratio are ratios of two non-GAAP performance measures. As such, there are no directly comparable GAAP performance measures.  The cash efficiency ratio performance measure removes the impact of Key's intangible asset amortization from the calculation.  The adjusted cash efficiency ratio further removes the impact of the efficiency initiative charges.  Management believes these ratios provide greater consistency and comparability between Key's results and those of its peer banks.  Additionally, these ratios are used by analysts and investors as they develop earnings forecasts and peer bank analysis.







Non-GAAP financial measures have inherent limitations, are not required to be uniformly applied and are not audited.  Although these non-GAAP financial measures are frequently used by investors to evaluate a company, they have limitations as analytical tools, and should not be considered in isolation, or as a substitute for analyses of results as reported under GAAP.
