MILWAUKEE, Oct. 20 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ --

  • Net loss of $169.2 million, or $0.32 per share, for third quarter 2010.
  • Sustained improvement in credit quality.
    • Nonperforming loans decreased 11 percent from second quarter 2010 – the fifth consecutive quarterly decline and down 34 percent from second quarter 2009 high.
    • Early stage delinquencies fell 24 percent from third quarter 2009. Delinquencies down 66 percent since peak at March 31, 2009.
  • Net interest margin stabilization.
    • Net interest margin rose 32 basis points to 3.14 percent from same quarter last year, but fell 3 basis points from prior quarter due to higher than expected cash balance.
  • Solid deposit growth.
    • Transaction deposits increased $2.5 billion or 12 percent compared to third quarter 2009.

Marshall & Ilsley Corporation (NYSE: MI) (M&I) today reported a 2010 third quarter net loss of $169.2 million, or $0.32 per share, as compared to a net loss of $248.4 million, or $0.68 per share, in the third quarter of 2009.  For the nine months ended September 30, 2010, M&I reported a net loss of $483.5 million, or $0.92 per share, as compared to a net loss of $599.3 million, or $1.97 per share, for the nine months ended September 30, 2009.

"Our third quarter results were in line with the prior quarter, but were significantly better after adjusting for one sizeable hospitality relationship," said Mark Furlong, president and CEO, Marshall & Ilsley Corporation. "Without this relationship, loan loss provision and net charge-offs were down substantially from the second quarter and the same period last year. This continues the progress we have made in addressing asset quality challenges through our early identification of problem credits. We will remain diligent in continuing to improve our credit profile, but our attention will increasingly shift toward a return to profitability and growth opportunities."

Net Interest Income

The Corporation's net interest income (FTE) was $387.0 million for the third quarter of 2010, down $7.5 million or 2 percent compared to the third quarter of 2009. The net interest margin was 3.14 percent, up 32 basis points from the third quarter of 2009, and falling 3 basis points from the prior quarter. During the third quarter of 2010, M&I's net interest margin benefited from changes in deposit mix but was offset by a higher than expected cash balance.

Asset Quality

M&I continued to proactively address credit quality in the third quarter of 2010 by identifying and writing down troubled assets, selling problem loans, reducing exposure to construction and development loans, and maintaining loan loss reserves.

  • Provision for loan and lease losses was $431.7 million in the third quarter of 2010, down $147.0 million or 25 percent versus the third quarter of 2009. Net charge-offs for the period were $560.3 million, rising $27.6 million or 5 percent compared to the same period last year.
  • The provision for loan and lease losses and net charge-offs for the third quarter of 2010 reflected the effect of the resolution of one sizeable loan relationship associated with the hospitality industry as shown in the following table.

  • Construction and development (C&D) exposure declined from the second quarter of 2010 to 9 percent of total loans. Arizona C&D exposure fell 77 percent since the fourth quarter of 2007.
  • Allowance for loan and lease losses at quarter-end was $1.4 billion, or 3.49 percent of total loans and leases, an increase of 42 basis points from the same period last year.

Asset quality trends demonstrated further stabilization through lower early stage delinquencies, nonperforming loan inflows, and nonperforming loans.

  • Early stage delinquencies fell 24 percent from the third quarter of 2009.
  • Nonperforming loan inflows increased 15 percent from the prior quarter to $707 million – this includes the impact of $148 million of renegotiated loans that were transferred to nonperforming during the quarter. After adjusting for these renegotiated loans, core new nonperforming loan inflows fell 4 percent from the second quarter of 2010 to $559 million – the lowest level since the first quarter of 2008.
  • Nonperforming loans decreased $203.8 million, or 11 percent from the second quarter of 2010 – the fifth consecutive quarterly decline and down 34 percent from the high point set in the second quarter of 2009.
  • Nonperforming loans and leases were 4.02 percent (or 2.39 percent excluding nonperforming loans and leases less than ninety days past due) of total loans and leases at September 30, 2010, compared to 4.36 percent at June 30, 2010.

Non-Interest Income

The Corporation's non-interest income was $223.5 million for the third quarter of 2010 compared to $224.0 million for the third quarter of 2009. In spite of volatile equity markets, Wealth Management revenue was $69.5 million for the current quarter, exceeding the same quarter last year by $2.8 million or 4 percent. Assets under management and assets under administration were $33.0 billion and $129.3 billion, respectively, at September 30, 2010, compared to $32.8 billion and $118.5 billion, respectively, at September 30, 2009.

Non-Interest Expense

M&I's non-interest expense was $420.0 million for the third quarter of 2010 compared to $405.5 million for the third quarter of 2009. Expenses related to retiring wholesale CDs were $28.8 million for the current quarter versus $2.1 million in the same period last year. These expenses were incurred as part of the Corporation's strategy to improve its funding profile going forward. Net credit-related expenses (meaning expenses associated with collection efforts and carrying nonperforming assets) were $37.2 million for the current quarter versus $66.4 million in the same period last year. After adjusting for expenses related to retiring wholesale CDs and credit-related expenses, M&I's non-interest expense rose $16.9 million or 5 percent versus the third quarter of 2009. The Corporation's adjusted efficiency ratio was 61.7 percent in the current quarter after adjusting for net credit-related expenses and other one-time items.

Loan and Deposit Growth

M&I's average loans and leases totaled $40.6 billion for the third quarter of 2010, decreasing $6.5 billion or 14 percent compared to the third quarter of 2009. When adjusted for the targeted reduction in the Corporation's construction and development portfolio, loans fell $4.1 billion or 10 percent versus the same period last year. Loan balances continued to be negatively impacted by lower utilization rates on commercial lines of credit and the depressed real estate markets.

Consistent with M&I's strategy to lower its level of wholesale deposits, the Corporation's average deposits totaled $39.0 billion for the third quarter of 2010, falling $2.3 billion or 6 percent versus the third quarter of 2009. M&I's bank-issued deposits remained steady over the past year, reflecting successful growth in transaction accounts. The Corporation's transaction deposits totaled $23.3 billion for the third quarter of 2010, increasing $2.5 billion or 12 percent compared to the third quarter of 2009. M&I's wholesale deposits totaled $8.8 billion for the third quarter of 2010, down $2.5 billion or 22 percent compared to the third quarter of 2009.

Year-To-Date Results

M&I reported a net loss of $483.5 million, or $0.92 per share, for the nine months ended September 30, 2010, as compared to a net loss of $599.3 million, or $1.97 per share, for the nine months ended September 30, 2009. The Corporation's net interest income (FTE) was $1,203.6 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2010, an increase of $1.7 million or 0.1 percent compared to the nine months ended September 30, 2009. M&I's non-interest income was $619.1 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2010 versus $663.1 million the nine months ended September 30, 2009.
