Wells Fargo & Company (NYSE:WFC) reported net income of $5.8 billion, or $1.05 per diluted common share, for third quarter 2015, compared with $5.7 billion, or $1.02 per share, for third quarter 2014, and $5.7 billion, or $1.03 per share, for second quarter 2015.

"Wells Fargo's strong third quarter results reflected the ability of our diversified business model to generate consistent financial performance in an uneven economic environment while continuing to meet our customers' financial needs," said Chairman and CEO John Stumpf. "Compared with a year ago, we grew loans, deposits and capital, and returned more capital to shareholders through dividends and share buybacks. Our balance sheet and credit results remained strong and our 265,000 team members continue to focus on helping our customers succeed financially."

Chief Financial Officer John Shrewsberry said, "Wells Fargo reported a solid $5.8 billion of net income for the third quarter. Revenue increased on both a linked quarter and year over year basis, on growth in both net interest income and noninterest income. We generated positive operating leverage in the quarter, as our expenses declined, and we remained within our targeted efficiency ratio range. Our return on equity and return on assets also remained within our targeted ranges, and we increased our net payout ratio5 to shareholders to 60 percent from 54 percent in second quarter."

Net Interest Income

Net interest income increased $187 million from second quarter 2015 to $11.5 billion, primarily driven by growth in investment securities and loans, including the full quarter benefit of the GE Capital loan purchase and related financing transaction that settled late in the second quarter. The third quarter also included one additional day, accounting for approximately one third of the increase in net interest income relative to the second quarter. These benefits were partially offset by reduced income from variable sources including purchased credit-impaired (PCI) loan recoveries, periodic dividends, and loan fees included in interest income.

Net interest margin was 2.96 percent, down 1 basis point from second quarter 2015. Balance sheet growth and repricing, driven by securities purchases and higher loan balances, improved the net interest margin by approximately 5 basis points linked-quarter. These benefits were offset by growth in customer deposits, which had a minimal impact to net interest income, but was dilutive to the net interest margin by 3 basis points, and by lower income from variable sources, which reduced the margin by 3 basis points.

Noninterest Income

Noninterest income was $10.4 billion, up from $10.0 billion in second quarter 2015, driven by higher equity investment gains, deposit service charges, lease income and card fees. Other noninterest income was also higher in the quarter, primarily due to the impact of lower interest rates on our debt hedging results. Offsetting this growth were lower gains from trading activities, driven by lower deferred compensation plan investment results (largely offset in employee benefits expense), debt securities gains, trust and investment fees, and seasonally lower crop insurance fees.

Mortgage banking noninterest income was $1.6 billion, down $116 million from second quarter. During the third quarter, residential mortgage originations were $55 billion, down $7 billion linked quarter. The production margin on residential held-for-sale mortgage originations6 was 1.88 percent, compared with 1.75 percent in second quarter. Net mortgage servicing rights (MSRs) results were $253 million, compared with $107 million in second quarter 2015.

Noninterest Expense

Noninterest expense declined $70 million from the prior quarter to $12.4 billion, primarily due to lower deferred compensation expense in employee benefits. This decline was partially offset by a $126 million contribution to the Wells Fargo Foundation, higher salaries expense, and increased project-related outside professional services expense. The efficiency ratio improved to 56.7 percent in third quarter 2015, compared with 58.5 percent in the prior quarter. The Company expects to operate at the higher end of its targeted efficiency ratio range of 55 to 59 percent for full year 2015.

Loans

Total loans were $903.2 billion at September 30, 2015, up $14.8 billion from June 30, 2015. Growth was broad-based and was driven by commercial and industrial, and 1-4 family first mortgage loans. Core loan growth was $17.1 billion, as non-strategic/liquidating portfolios declined $2.3 billion in the quarter. Total average loans were $895.1 billion in the third quarter, up $24.6 billion from the prior quarter, and included the benefit of the GE Capital loan purchase and related financing transaction that settled late in the second quarter.

Investment Securities

Investment securities were $345.1 billion at September 30, 2015, up $4.3 billion from second quarter. Purchases of approximately $19 billion (primarily federal agency mortgage-backed securities and U.S. Treasury securities), were partially offset by maturities, amortization and sales.

Net unrealized available-for-sale securities gains of $4.9 billion at September 30, 2015, declined from $5.7 billion at June 30, 2015, as the benefit of lower interest rates was offset by reductions arising from realized gains (both debt and equity), and widening credit spreads.

Deposits

Total average deposits for third quarter 2015 were $1.2 trillion, up 6 percent from a year ago and up 5 percent (annualized) from second quarter 2015, driven by both commercial and consumer growth. The average deposit cost for third quarter 2015 was 8 basis points, which was down 2 basis points from a year ago and flat compared with the prior quarter.

Capital

Capital levels remained strong in the third quarter, with Common Equity Tier 1 under Basel III (fully phased-in) of $141.9 billion. The Common Equity Tier 1 ratio under Basel III (fully phased-in) was 10.7 percent4. In third quarter 2015, the Company purchased 51.7 million shares of its common stock. The Company also paid a quarterly common stock dividend of $0.375 per share, up from $0.35 per share a year ago.

Credit Quality

“Credit performance remained strong during the quarter," said Chief Risk Officer Mike Loughlin. "The quarterly loss rate (annualized) remained low at 0.31 percent and nonperforming assets declined by $1.1 billion, or 30 percent (annualized), from the prior quarter driven by lower nonaccrual loans. The allowance for credit losses in the third quarter remained flat (no reserve release) as continued credit quality improvements in the residential real estate portfolio were offset by higher commercial reserves reflecting deterioration in the energy sector. Future allowance levels may increase or decrease based on a variety of factors, including loan growth, portfolio performance and general economic conditions.”

Net Loan Charge-offs

The quarterly loss rate (annualized) of 0.31 percent included commercial losses of 0.08 percent and consumer losses of 0.53 percent. Credit losses were $703 million in third quarter 2015, compared with $650 million in the second quarter, an 8 percent increase, primarily driven by a seasonal increase in the auto portfolio.

Loans 90 Days or More Past Due and Still Accruing

Loans 90 days or more past due and still accruing (excluding government insured/guaranteed) totaled $872 million at September 30, 2015, up from $756 million at June 30, 2015. Loans 90 days or more past due and still accruing with repayments insured by the Federal Housing Administration (FHA) or predominantly guaranteed by the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) for mortgages and the U.S. Department of Education for student loans under the Federal Family Education Loan Program were $13.5 billion at September 30, 2015, down from $14.4 billion at June 30, 2015.

Allowance for Credit Losses

The allowance for credit losses, including the allowance for unfunded commitments, totaled $12.6 billion at September 30, 2015, unchanged from June 30, 2015. The allowance coverage to total loans was 1.39 percent, compared with 1.42 percent in second quarter 2015. The allowance covered 4.5 times annualized third quarter net charge-offs, compared with 4.8 times in the prior quarter. The allowance coverage to nonaccrual loans was 109 percent at September 30, 2015, compared with 101 percent at June 30, 2015. “We believe the allowance was appropriate for losses inherent in the loan portfolio at September 30, 2015,” said Loughlin.

Business Segment Performance

Wells Fargo defines its operating segments by product type and customer segment. Effective third quarter 2015, we realigned our asset management business from Wholesale Banking to Wealth and Investment Management (WIM) (formerly Wealth, Brokerage and Retirement) and realigned our reinsurance business from WIM and our strategic auto investments from Community Banking to Wholesale Banking. Results for these operating segments were revised for prior periods to reflect the impact of these realignments. Segment net income for each of the three business segments was:

Community Banking reported net income of $3.7 billion, up $336 million, or 10 percent, from second quarter 2015. Revenue of $13.6 billion increased $973 million, or 8 percent, from second quarter 2015 due to gains from sale of equity investments, as well as higher net interest income, deposit service charges, and other income, partially offset by lower mortgage banking fees. Noninterest expense increased $58 million, or 1 percent, primarily due to a donation to the Wells Fargo Foundation, partially offset by lower advertising costs and operating losses. The provision for credit losses increased $295 million from the prior quarter primarily due to the absence of a reserve release in the quarter.

Net income was up $225 million, or 7 percent, from third quarter 2014. Revenue was up $807 million, or 6 percent, compared with a year ago due to higher net interest income, market sensitive revenue, primarily gains from sale of equity investments, debit and credit card fees, and trust and investment fees. Noninterest expense increased $170 million, or 2 percent, from a year ago driven by higher personnel costs and a donation to the Wells Fargo Foundation, partially offset by lower foreclosed assets and travel and entertainment expenses. The provision for credit losses increased $193 million from a year ago as the $74 million improvement in net charge-offs was more than offset by a $267 million lower reserve release.

Net interest income increased $13 million, as the benefit of strong broad-based loan growth and higher other earning assets were largely offset by lower loan resolutions. Noninterest income decreased $305 million, or 11 percent, due to lower gains on equity fund investments and debt securities related to higher other-than-temporary impairment on energy sector investments, mortgage banking fees in real estate capital markets, investment banking fees, trading revenues and seasonally lower insurance fees. Noninterest expense increased $1 million as lower variable compensation expenses were more than offset by higher operating losses. The provision for credit losses increased $103 million from prior quarter due to the absence of a reserve release and increased net charge-offs.

Net income was down $157 million, or 8 percent, from third quarter 2014. Revenue decreased $97 million, or 2 percent, from third quarter 2014 as $67 million, or 2 percent, growth in net interest income related to strong loan and deposit growth was more than offset by lower noninterest income. Noninterest income declined $164 million, or 6 percent, on lower gains on equity investments and lower mortgage banking and commercial real estate brokerage fees. Noninterest expense increased $39 million, or 1 percent, from a year ago primarily due to higher personnel expenses related to growth initiatives, compliance, and regulatory requirements, as well as increased operating losses. The provision for credit losses increased $130 million from a year ago.

Forward-Looking Statements

This document contains “forward-looking statements” within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. In addition, we may make forward-looking statements in our other documents filed or furnished with the SEC, and our management may make forward-looking statements orally to analysts, investors, representatives of the media and others. Forward-looking statements can be identified by words such as “anticipates,” “intends,” “plans,” “seeks,” “believes,” “estimates,” “expects,” “target,” “projects,” “outlook,” “forecast,” “will,” “may,” “could,” “should,” “can” and similar references to future periods. In particular, forward-looking statements include, but are not limited to, statements we make about: (i) the future operating or financial performance of the Company, including our outlook for future growth; (ii) our noninterest expense and efficiency ratio; (iii) future credit quality and performance, including our expectations regarding future loan losses and allowance levels; (iv) the appropriateness of the allowance for credit losses; (v) our expectations regarding net interest income and net interest margin; (vi) loan growth or the reduction or mitigation of risk in our loan portfolios; (vii) future capital levels or targets and our estimated Common Equity Tier 1 ratio under Basel III capital standards; (viii) the performance of our mortgage business and any related exposures; (ix) the expected outcome and impact of legal, regulatory and legislative developments, as well as our expectations regarding compliance therewith; (x) future common stock dividends, common share repurchases and other uses of capital; (xi) our targeted range for return on assets and return on equity; (xii) the outcome of contingencies, such as legal proceedings; and (xiii) the Company’s plans, objectives and strategies.

Forward-looking statements are not based on historical facts but instead represent our current expectations and assumptions regarding our business, the economy and other future conditions. Because forward-looking statements relate to the future, they are subject to inherent uncertainties, risks and changes in circumstances that are difficult to predict. Our actual results may differ materially from those contemplated by the forward-looking statements. We caution you, therefore, against relying on any of these forward-looking statements. They are neither statements of historical fact nor guarantees or assurances of future performance. While there is no assurance that any list of risks and uncertainties or risk factors is complete, important factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from those in the forward-looking statements include the following, without limitation:

  • current and future economic and market conditions, including the effects of declines in housing prices, high unemployment rates, U.S. fiscal debt, budget and tax matters, geopolitical matters, and the overall slowdown in global economic growth;
  • our capital and liquidity requirements (including under regulatory capital standards, such as the Basel III capital standards) and our ability to generate capital internally or raise capital on favorable terms;
  • financial services reform and other current, pending or future legislation or regulation that could have a negative effect on our revenue and businesses, including the Dodd-Frank Act and other legislation and regulation relating to bank products and services;
  • the extent of our success in our loan modification efforts, as well as the effects of regulatory requirements or guidance regarding loan modifications;
  • the amount of mortgage loan repurchase demands that we receive and our ability to satisfy any such demands without having to repurchase loans related thereto or otherwise indemnify or reimburse third parties, and the credit quality of or losses on such repurchased mortgage loans;
  • negative effects relating to our mortgage servicing and foreclosure practices, as well as changes in industry standards or practices, regulatory or judicial requirements, penalties or fines, increased servicing and other costs or obligations, including loan modification requirements, or delays or moratoriums on foreclosures;
  • our ability to realize our efficiency ratio target as part of our expense management initiatives, including as a result of business and economic cyclicality, seasonality, changes in our business composition and operating environment, growth in our businesses and/or acquisitions, and unexpected expenses relating to, among other things, litigation and regulatory matters;
  • the effect of the current low interest rate environment or changes in interest rates on our net interest income, net interest margin and our mortgage originations, mortgage servicing rights and mortgages held for sale;
  • significant turbulence or a disruption in the capital or financial markets, which could result in, among other things, reduced investor demand for mortgage loans, a reduction in the availability of funding or increased funding costs, and declines in asset values and/or recognition of other-than-temporary impairment on securities held in our investment securities portfolio;
  • the effect of a fall in stock market prices on our investment banking business and our fee income from our brokerage, asset and wealth management businesses;
  • reputational damage from negative publicity, protests, fines, penalties and other negative consequences from regulatory violations and legal actions;
  • a failure in or breach of our operational or security systems or infrastructure, or those of our third party vendors or other service providers, including as a result of cyber attacks;
  • the effect of changes in the level of checking or savings account deposits on our funding costs and net interest margin;
  • fiscal and monetary policies of the Federal Reserve Board; and
  • the other risk factors and uncertainties described under “Risk Factors” in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2014.

In addition to the above factors, we also caution that the amount and timing of any future common stock dividends or repurchases will depend on the earnings, cash requirements and financial condition of the Company, market conditions, capital requirements (including under Basel capital standards), common stock issuance requirements, applicable law and regulations (including federal securities laws and federal banking regulations), and other factors deemed relevant by the Company’s Board of Directors, and may be subject to regulatory approval or conditions.

For more information about factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from our expectations, refer to our reports filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission, including the discussion under “Risk Factors” in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2014, as filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission and available on its website at www.sec.gov.

Any forward-looking statement made by us speaks only as of the date on which it is made. Factors or events that could cause our actual results to differ may emerge from time to time, and it is not possible for us to predict all of them. We undertake no obligation to publicly update any forward-looking statement, whether as a result of new information, future developments or otherwise, except as may be required by law.
