Wells Fargo & Company (NYSE:WFC) reported net income of $5.5 billion, or $0.99 per diluted common share, for first quarter 2016, compared with $5.8 billion, or $1.04 per share, for first quarter 2015, and $5.6 billion, or $1.00 per share, for fourth quarter 2015.

Chairman and CEO John Stumpf said, “Wells Fargo's first quarter results reflected the benefit of our diversified business model as we managed challenges presented by a volatile operating environment for our industry. We again generated solid growth in the fundamental drivers of long-term value creation: loans, deposits and capital. We also completed two important acquisitions from GE Capital, which are great additions to our company and demonstrate the benefit of our strong financial position. We remain focused on meeting the financial needs of our consumer and business customers, and I believe we are well positioned for the future.”

Chief Financial Officer John Shrewsberry added, “Our first quarter results demonstrated an ability to produce consistent revenue and net income across economic and interest rate cycles. While challenges in the energy industry and persistent low rates impacted our bottom line, our diversified business model was again beneficial to our results. We were disciplined in deploying liquidity into investment securities in the quarter, with gross purchases well below recent quarters. This was partially responsible for the $30 billion increase in our federal funds and short-term investment balances compared with the prior quarter. Our capital remained very strong with Common Equity Tier 1 (fully phased-in) of $142.7 billion3. Our net payout ratio4 was 60% in the quarter, as we returned $3.0 billion to shareholders through common stock dividends and net share repurchases.”

Net Interest Income

Net interest income in first quarter 2016 increased $79 million from fourth quarter 2015 to $11.7 billion. This increase was driven largely by earning asset growth, including a partial quarter impact from the assets acquired from GE Capital, the benefit of the fourth quarter increase in the federal funds rate and disciplined deposit pricing. These increases to net interest income were partially offset by reduced income from variable sources, including periodic dividends and loans fees, and one less day in the quarter.

Net interest margin was 2.90 percent, down 2 basis points from fourth quarter 2015. Income from variable sources reduced the net interest margin by approximately 2 basis points linked-quarter. All other growth, mix and repricing was essentially neutral to net interest margin.

Noninterest Income

Noninterest income in the first quarter was $10.5 billion, up from $10.0 billion in fourth quarter 2015, primarily due to a $381 million gain from the previously announced sale of our crop insurance business (included in other noninterest income) and the impact of lower interest rates and currency movements on hedging results (hedge ineffectiveness) of $379 million, driven by long-term debt. Noninterest income also reflected increases in lease income, which includes operating leases acquired in the GE Capital transactions, and trading gains, reflecting higher customer accommodation trading results in all market businesses. These increases were partially offset by lower gains from equity investments and debt securities, and declines in trust and investment fees, mortgage banking fee income, and commercial real estate brokerage commissions.

Trust and investment fees were $3.4 billion, down $126 million from the prior quarter, primarily due to lower investment banking fees and lower retail brokerage transaction activity and asset-based fees reflecting lower market valuations.

Mortgage banking noninterest income was $1.6 billion, down $62 million from fourth quarter 2015, primarily driven by a decrease in mortgage originations and production margins in the first quarter, partially offset by higher servicing income. Residential mortgage loan originations were $44 billion in the first quarter, down $3 billion linked quarter. The production margin on residential held-for-sale mortgage loan originations5 was 1.68 percent, compared with 1.83 percent in fourth quarter. Net servicing income was $850 million, compared with $730 million in fourth quarter.

Noninterest Expense

Noninterest expense in the first quarter was $13.0 billion, compared with $12.6 billion in fourth quarter 2015. First quarter expenses included seasonally higher employee benefits and incentive compensation, as well as an increase in operating lease expense due to the leases acquired in the GE Capital transactions. These higher expenses were offset by lower outside professional services, equipment and advertising, which typically decline in first quarter, and lower operating losses. The efficiency ratio was 58.7 percent in first quarter 2016, compared with 58.4 percent in the prior quarter. The Company currently expects to operate at the higher end of its targeted efficiency ratio range of 55 to 59 percent for full year 2016.

Loans

Total loans were $947.3 billion at March 31, 2016, up $30.7 billion, or 3 percent, from December 31, 2015, including $24.9 billion from the GE Capital acquisitions. First quarter organic loan growth included commercial and industrial, real estate mortgage, real estate construction, lease financing, real estate 1-4 family first mortgage and automobile. Total average loans were $927.2 billion in the first quarter, up $14.9 billion from the prior quarter, and included an $8.8 billion impact from the GE Capital acquisitions.

Investment Securities

Investment securities were $334.9 billion at March 31, 2016, down $12.7 billion from fourth quarter, as a result of securities sales, runoff and modest securities purchases.

Net unrealized available-for-sale securities gains of $3.5 billion at March 31, 2016, increased from $3.0 billion at December 31, 2015, primarily due to a decline in interest rates.

Deposits

Total average deposits for first quarter 2016 were $1.2 trillion, up 4 percent from a year ago, driven by both commercial and consumer growth. The average deposit cost for first quarter 2016 was 10 basis points, up 1 basis point from a year ago and up 2 basis points from the prior quarter. The increase in deposits reflected strong consumer and small business growth, in part due to seasonally higher balances.

Capital

Capital levels remained strong in the first quarter, with Common Equity Tier 1 (fully phased-in) (CET1) of $142.7 billion, or 10.6 percent3, compared with 10.8 percent in the prior quarter. The decline in the CET1 ratio was primarily driven by the deployment of capital to support the growth in assets from the GE Capital acquisitions in the quarter. In first quarter 2016, the Company repurchased 51.7 million shares of its common stock, which reduced period-end common shares outstanding by 16.2 million shares after taking into account seasonal common stock issuances to employee benefit plans. The Company paid a quarterly common stock dividend of $0.375 per share, up from $0.35 per share a year ago.

Credit Quality

“Solid overall credit results continued in the first quarter,” said Chief Risk Officer Mike Loughlin. “The quarterly loss rate remained low at 0.38 percent (annualized). While substantially all of the loan portfolio continues to perform well, the oil and gas portfolio remains under significant stress due to low prices and excess leverage in this industry. The increases in losses and nonperforming loans in the first quarter were primarily due to continued challenges in this portfolio. The allowance for credit losses in the first quarter reflected a reserve build of $200 million as higher commercial reserves reflecting continued deterioration within the oil and gas portfolio were partially offset by continued credit quality improvements in the residential real estate portfolio. Future allowance levels will be based on a variety of factors, including loan growth, portfolio performance and general economic conditions.”

Net Loan Charge-offs

The quarterly loss rate of 0.38 percent (annualized) reflected commercial losses of 0.20 percent and consumer losses of 0.57 percent. Credit losses were $886 million in first quarter 2016, compared with $831 million in fourth quarter 2015, due to higher oil and gas portfolio losses.

Nonperforming Assets

Nonperforming assets increased by $706 million from fourth quarter 2015 to $13.5 billion. Nonaccrual loans increased $852 million from fourth quarter to $12.2 billion driven by a $1.1 billion increase in the oil and gas portfolio and the addition of $343 million of nonaccrual loans from the GE Capital acquisitions. The increase in nonaccrual loans was partially offset by a $684 million decline in consumer real estate nonaccrual loans, partly due to a sale, as well as a $76 million decline in commercial real estate nonaccrual loans. Foreclosed assets were $1.3 billion, down from $1.4 billion in fourth quarter 2015.

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 $803 million at March 31, 2016, down from $981 million at December 31, 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 mortgage loans and the U.S. Department of Education for student loans under the Federal Family Education Loan Program were $12.3 billion at March 31, 2016, down from $13.4 billion at December 31, 2015.

Allowance for Credit Losses

The allowance for credit losses, including the allowance for unfunded commitments, totaled $12.7 billion at March 31, 2016, compared with $12.5 billion at December 31, 2015. The allowance coverage for total loans was 1.34 percent, compared with 1.37 percent in fourth quarter 2015, as loans and leases acquired from GE Capital were recorded at fair value under the purchase method of accounting which fully reflects life-of-loan expected credit losses. The allowance covered 3.6 times annualized first quarter net charge-offs, compared with 3.8 times in the prior quarter. The allowance coverage for nonaccrual loans was 104 percent at March 31, 2016, compared with 110 percent at December 31, 2015. “We believe the allowance was appropriate for losses inherent in the loan portfolio at March 31, 2016,” said Loughlin.

Community Banking reported net income of $3.3 billion, up $127 million, or 4 percent, from fourth quarter 2015. Revenue of $12.6 billion increased $284 million, or 2 percent, from fourth quarter 2015 due to higher net interest income and other income (hedging ineffectiveness, driven by long-term debt hedging results), partially offset by lower equity investment gains, and lower gains on deferred compensation plan investments (offset in employee benefits expense). Noninterest expense was down 1 percent, compared with fourth quarter 2015, due to lower project-related expense, equipment expense, operating losses, and deferred compensation plan expense (offset in trading revenue), partially offset by seasonally higher personnel expense. The provision for credit losses increased $16 million from the prior quarter.

Net income was down $251 million, or 7 percent, from first quarter 2015. First quarter 2015 results included a discrete tax benefit of $359 million. Revenue was up $503 million, or 4 percent, compared with a year ago due to higher net interest income, mortgage banking fees, deposit service charges, and debit and credit card fees, partially offset by lower market sensitive revenue, primarily gains on equity investments and trading activities, and lower trust and investment fees. Noninterest expense increased $245 million, or 4 percent, from a year ago driven by higher operating losses and personnel expenses, partially offset by lower foreclosed assets expense. The provision for credit losses increased $62 million from a year ago primarily due to an allowance build compared with a reserve release in first quarter 2015.

Net interest income increased $37 million, or 1 percent, as broad-based loan growth, including the GE Capital acquisitions, and increased trading-related revenue was partially offset by lower deposits. Noninterest income increased $362 million, or 13 percent, as the gain on sale of the crop insurance business, strong customer accommodation trading results and the GE Capital acquisitions were partially offset by lower results in commercial real estate businesses and lower investment banking fees and gains on equity fund investments. Noninterest expense increased $477 million, or 14 percent, from prior quarter due to the GE Capital acquisitions as well as seasonally higher personnel expenses, increased foreclosed asset expenses and seasonally higher insurance commissions. The provision for credit losses increased $237 million from the prior quarter, primarily due to higher loan losses in the oil and gas portfolio.

Net income was down $53 million from first quarter 2015. Revenue increased $549 million, or 9 percent, from first quarter 2015, on $311 million higher net interest income related to strong loan growth as well as the GE Capital acquisitions and $238 million higher noninterest income. Noninterest income increased due to the GE Capital acquisitions, the gain related to the sale of the crop insurance business and higher treasury management fees, partially offset by lower investment banking fees and lower gains on debt securities and trading assets. Noninterest expense increased $350 million, or 10 percent, from a year ago primarily due to the GE Capital acquisitions and higher personnel expenses related to growth initiatives, compliance, and regulatory requirements. The provision for credit losses increased $414 million from a year ago due to increased loan losses primarily related to the oil and gas portfolio.

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, 2015.

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, 2015, 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.
