Net income attributable to U.S. Bancorp was $1,522 million for the second quarter of 2016, 2.6 percent higher than the $1,483 million for the second quarter of 2015, and 9.8 percent higher than the $1,386 million for the first quarter of 2016. Diluted earnings per common share were $0.83 in the second quarter of 2016, $0.03 higher than the second quarter of 2015 and $0.07 higher than the $0.76 reported for the first quarter of 2016. The second quarter of 2016 included $0.01 in notable items, including $180 million of equity investment income, primarily the result of our membership in Visa Europe Limited (“Visa Europe”) which was sold to Visa, Inc. on June 21, 2016, and $110 million in accruals related to legal and regulatory matters along with a $40 million charitable contribution. Excluding the notable items, the increase in net income year-over-year was primarily due to an increase in net interest income of 4.5 percent , mainly a result of strong loan growth, and higher noninterest income of 4.4 percent, driven by growth in credit and debit card revenue, commercial products revenue, and trust and investment management fees. This increase was partially offset by higher noninterest expense related to merit increases and higher variable compensation expense, increased compliance costs, which peaked in the second quarter 2016, and higher marketing expense as a result of brand investment. Excluding the notable items, the increase in net income on a linked quarter basis was principally due to total net revenue growth of 4.6 percent reflecting typical seasonality in certain lines of businesses, including payments, mortgage banking and deposit services, partially offset by higher noninterest expense of 3.4 percent related to increased compliance costs and marketing expense.

U.S. Bancorp Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Richard K. Davis said, “U.S. Bancorp reported strong second quarter results, delivering record revenue and net income in an economy that continues to be challenged by global concerns and low interest rates. Despite these economic headwinds we continued to effectively execute on our strategy to be the most trusted choice and to unify the customer experience. The second quarter was a record quarter for us as we once again delivered industry-leading returns, steady loan growth and strength in our fee-based businesses. Steady loan growth, demonstrated by continued strength in commercial loans and momentum in consumer loans, led to increased net interest income despite a decline in net interest margin. Growth in our fee revenue continued across many of our fee-based businesses, including our payments business lines. We also reported strong results in our capital markets business as we were positioned well to provide products and services to our customers as they navigated through the recent market volatility. And we managed our capital effectively, delivering 77 percent of our second quarter earnings back to shareholders through dividends and share buybacks. During the quarter, we were pleased to receive the Federal Reserve’s non-objection to our capital plan, allowing us once again to return value to our shareholders by increasing our annual common dividend by 9.8 percent in the third quarter of 2016. We also made important investments in our vision for the future, including investments in the U.S. Bank brand that will help us more effectively articulate our compelling story to customers in order to generate long-term growth.

“The strength of our company continues to be driven by the commitment of our employees. Through their hard work and dedication, we continue to deliver consistent, predictable and repeatable industry-leading financial results. We remain well positioned to provide the right products and services to our customers so that they may achieve their financial objectives as we continue to create value for our shareholders.”

Net Interest Income

Net interest income on a taxable-equivalent basis in the second quarter of 2016 was $2,896 million, an increase of $126 million (4.5 percent) over the second quarter of 2015. The increase was driven by loan growth and higher rates, partially offset by the loan portfolio mix. Average earning assets were $18.9 billion (5.2 percent) higher than the second quarter of 2015, driven by increases of $20.0 billion (8.1 percent) in average total loans and $4.7 billion (4.6 percent) in average investment securities. Net interest income increased $8 million (0.3 percent) on a linked quarter basis, primarily due to growth in average total loans, partially offset by the loan portfolio mix and higher funding costs. Average total loans were $4.3 billion (1.6 percent) higher on a linked quarter basis.

The net interest margin in the second quarter of 2016 was 3.02 percent, compared with 3.03 percent in the second quarter of 2015, and 3.06 percent in the first quarter of 2016. The decrease in the net interest margin on a year-over-year basis was principally due to securities purchases at lower average rates and lower reinvestment rates on maturing securities, partially offset by higher rates on new loans. On a linked quarter basis, the decrease in net interest margin primarily reflected the loan portfolio mix as well as lower average rates on new securities purchases and lower reinvestment rates on maturing securities.

Investment Securities

Average investment securities in the second quarter of 2016 were $4.7 billion (4.6 percent) higher year-over-year and $1.1 billion (1.0 percent) higher than the prior quarter. These increases were primarily due to purchases of U.S. Treasury and U.S. government agency-backed securities, net of prepayments and maturities, to support regulatory liquidity coverage ratio requirements.

Loans

Average total loans were $20.0 billion (8.1 percent) higher in the second quarter of 2016 than the second quarter of 2015 (6.5 percent excluding student loans and the credit card portfolio acquisition). The increase was driven by growth in total commercial loans (10.7 percent), residential mortgages (8.6 percent), and credit card loans (14.3 percent, 5.8 percent excluding the credit card portfolio acquisition), and total other retail loans (9.3 percent, 4.1 percent excluding student loans). These increases were partially offset by a decline in the run-off covered loans portfolio (14.5 percent). Average total loans were $4.3 billion (1.6 percent) higher in the second quarter of 2016 than the first quarter of 2016. The increase was driven by growth in total commercial loans (2.6 percent), residential mortgages (2.4 percent) and total commercial real estate (1.4 percent).

Deposits

Average total deposits for the second quarter of 2016 were $21.6 billion (7.6 percent) higher than the second quarter of 2015. Average noninterest-bearing deposits increased $1.8 billion (2.4 percent) year-over-year, mainly in Consumer and Small Business Banking and Wholesale Banking and Commercial Real Estate, partially offset by a decline in Wealth Management and Securities Services. Average total savings deposits were $21.8 billion (12.7 percent) higher year-over-year, the result of growth across all business lines. Growth in Consumer and Small Business Banking total savings deposits included net new account growth of 2.8 percent. Average time deposits were $2.0 billion (5.6 percent) lower than the prior year quarter. Changes in time deposits are largely related to those deposits managed as an alternative to other funding sources such as wholesale borrowing, based largely on relative pricing and liquidity characteristics.

Average total deposits increased $11.5 billion (3.9 percent) over the first quarter of 2016. Average noninterest-bearing deposits increased $602 million (0.8 percent) on a linked quarter basis, mainly due to higher balances in Consumer and Small Business Banking, partially offset by lower balances in Wholesale Banking and Commercial Real Estate. Average total savings deposits increased $10.4 billion (5.7 percent) reflecting increases across all business lines. Average time deposits, which are managed based on funding needs, relative pricing, and liquidity characteristics increased $524 million (1.6 percent) on a linked quarter basis.

Noninterest Income

Second quarter noninterest income was $2,552 million, which was $280 million higher than the second quarter of 2015. Excluding the Visa Europe sale, noninterest income increased 4.4 percent reflecting increases in credit and debit card revenue, trust and investment management fees, and commercial products revenue. Credit and debit card revenue increased $30 million (11.3 percent) reflecting higher transaction volumes including acquired portfolios. Merchant processing services revenue increased $8 million (2.0 percent). Adjusted for the approximate $4 million impact of foreign currency rate changes, year-over-year merchant processing services revenue growth would have been approximately 3.0 percent. Trust and investment management fees increased $24 million (7.2 percent) reflecting lower money market fee waivers. Commercial products revenue increased $24 million (11.2 percent) driven by higher bond underwriting fees, foreign currency customer activity and other capital markets activity as a result of market volatility.

Noninterest income was $403 million higher in the second quarter of 2016 than the first quarter of 2016. Excluding the Visa Europe sale, noninterest income increased 10.4 percent reflecting seasonally higher fee-based revenue including credit and debit card revenue, merchant processing services revenue, mortgage banking revenue and deposit service charges. Credit and debit card revenue increased $30 million (11.3 percent), primarily due to seasonally higher transaction volumes. Merchant processing services revenue increased $30 million (8.0 percent) as a result of seasonally higher transaction volumes. Mortgage banking revenue increased $51 million (27.3 percent) mainly due to seasonally higher production volumes. Commercial products revenue increased $41 million (20.8 percent) primarily due to higher bond underwriting fees, foreign currency customer activity and capital markets volume, partially reflecting market volatility. Trust and investment management fees increased $19 million (5.6 percent) primarily due to account growth, improved market conditions and lower money market fee waivers. Deposit service charges increased $11 million (6.5 percent) due to seasonally higher transaction volumes.

Noninterest Expense

Second quarter noninterest expense was $2,992 million, which was $310 million (11.6 percent) higher than the second quarter of 2015. Excluding the notable expense items, noninterest expense increased $160 million (6.0 percent) related to higher compensation expense, professional services expense, and technology and communications expense, partially offset by lower employee benefits expense. Compensation expense increased $81 million (6.8 percent), principally due to the impact of merit increases along with higher variable compensation including performance-based incentives. Professional services expense increased $15 million (14.2 percent) primarily due to compliance-related matters, while technology and communications expense increased $20 million (9.0 percent) due to acquired card portfolio conversion costs. Excluding the notable charitable contribution, the marketing and business development increase of $13 million reflected brand advertising. Postage, printing and supplies expense increased $13 million (20.3 percent) reflecting the impact of a prior year reimbursement from a business partner. Offsetting these increases was lower employee benefits expense of $15 million (5.1 percent) mainly due to lower pension costs.

Noninterest expense increased $243 million (8.8 percent) on a linked quarter basis, $93 million (3.4 percent) excluding the second quarter 2016 notable items, reflecting higher professional services and compensation expenses, partially offset by lower employee benefits expense. Excluding the notable charitable contribution, the marketing and business development expense increase of $32 million was driven by brand advertising. Professional services expense was $23 million (23.5 percent) higher compared with the first quarter of 2016 principally due to higher costs for compliance-related matters. Compensation expense increased $28 million (2.2 percent) due to merit increases and higher variable compensation including performance-based incentives. Partially offsetting these increases was a decrease in employee benefits expense of $22 million (7.3 percent), driven by seasonally lower payroll tax expense.

Provision for Income Taxes

The provision for income taxes for the second quarter of 2016 resulted in a tax rate on a taxable-equivalent basis of 27.9 percent (effective tax rate of 26.1 percent), compared with 28.0 percent (effective tax rate of 26.1 percent) in the second quarter of 2015, and 28.4 percent (effective tax rate of 26.5 percent) in the first quarter of 2016, reflecting the favorable settlement of certain tax exam matters in the second quarter of 2016.

Credit Quality

The Company’s provision for credit losses for the second quarter of 2016 was $327 million, which was $3 million (0.9 percent) lower than the prior quarter and $46 million (16.4 percent) higher than the second quarter of 2015. Credit quality was relatively stable.

The provision for credit losses was $10 million higher than net charge-offs in the second quarter of 2016, $15 million higher than net charge-offs in the first quarter of 2016 and $15 million lower than net charge-offs in the second quarter of 2015. The reserve build for the second quarter of 2016 was driven by portfolio growth, partially offset by reduced energy portfolio exposures and residential mortgage credit quality improvement. Total net charge-offs in the second quarter of 2016 were $317 million, compared with $315 million in the first quarter of 2016, and $296 million in the second quarter of 2015. Net charge-offs increased $2 million (0.6 percent) compared with the first quarter of 2016 mainly due to modest increases in construction and development and credit card net charge-offs. Net charge-offs increased $21 million (7.1 percent) compared with the second quarter of 2015 primarily due to higher commercial loan net charge-offs, partially offset by lower charge-offs related to residential mortgages. The net charge-off ratio was 0.48 percent in the second quarter of 2016, the first quarter of 2016 and in the second quarter of 2015.

The allowance for credit losses was $4,329 million at June 30, 2016, compared with $4,320 million at March 31, 2016, and $4,326 million at June 30, 2015. The ratio of the allowance for credit losses to period-end loans was 1.61 percent at June 30, 2016, compared with 1.63 percent at March 31, 2016, and 1.74 percent at June 30, 2015. The ratio of the allowance for credit losses to nonperforming loans was 312 percent at June 30, 2016, compared with 303 percent at March 31, 2016, and 349 percent at June 30, 2015.

Nonperforming assets were $1,672 million at June 30, 2016, compared with $1,719 million at March 31, 2016, and $1,577 million at June 30, 2015. The ratio of nonperforming assets to loans and other real estate was 0.62 percent at June 30, 2016, compared with 0.65 percent at March 31, 2016, and 0.63 percent at June 30, 2015. The $95 million (6.0 percent) increase in nonperforming assets on a year-over-year basis was driven by commercial loans within the energy portfolio, partially offset by improvements in the Company’s residential and commercial real estate portfolios. The decrease in nonperforming assets on a linked quarter basis of $47 million (2.7 percent) was driven by improvements in the energy portfolio and in residential mortgages. Accruing loans 90 days or more past due were $724 million ($478 million excluding covered loans) at June 30, 2016, compared with $804 million ($528 million excluding covered loans) at March 31, 2016, and $801 million ($469 million excluding covered loans) at June 30, 2015.

Commercial loans to customers in the energy sector were approximately $3.0 billion ($11.3 billion of commitments) at June 30, 2016, compared with $3.4 billion ($11.9 billion of commitments) at March 31, 2016. The decline was primarily driven by the completion of our spring borrowing base redeterminations on reserve-based loans within our energy portfolio. During the second quarter 2016, criticized commitments within the energy portfolio decreased by $509 million while nonperforming loans in the energy portfolio decreased $54 million. Energy portfolio loans represent 1.1 percent of the Company’s total loans outstanding at June 30, 2016, and 1.3 percent at March 31, 2016. At June 30, 2016, the Company had credit reserves of 8.8 percent of total outstanding energy loan balances, compared with 9.1 percent of total outstanding energy loan balances at March 31, 2016.

Beginning January 1, 2014, the regulatory capital requirements effective for the Company follow Basel III, subject to certain transition provisions from Basel I over the following four years to full implementation by January 1, 2018. Basel III includes two comprehensive methodologies for calculating risk-weighted assets: a general standardized approach and more risk-sensitive advanced approaches, with the Company's capital adequacy being evaluated against the methodology that is most restrictive.
 

Capital Management

Total U.S. Bancorp shareholders’ equity was $47.4 billion at June 30, 2016, compared with $46.8 billion at March 31, 2016, and $44.5 billion at June 30, 2015. During the second quarter, the Company returned 77 percent of earnings to shareholders through dividends and share buybacks.

All regulatory ratios continue to be in excess of “well-capitalized” requirements. The estimated common equity tier 1 capital to risk-weighted assets ratio using the Basel III fully implemented standardized approach was 9.3 percent at June 30, 2016, compared with 9.2 percent at March 31, 2016, and at June 30, 2015. The estimated common equity tier 1 capital to risk-weighted assets ratio using the Basel III fully implemented advanced approaches method was 12.0 percent at June 30, 2016, compared with 11.9 percent at March 31, 2016, and 12.4 percent at June 30, 2015.

Forward-Looking Statements

The following information appears in accordance with the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995:

This press release contains forward-looking statements about U.S. Bancorp. Statements that are not historical or current facts, including statements about beliefs and expectations, are forward-looking statements and are based on the information available to, and assumptions and estimates made by, management as of the date hereof. These forward-looking statements cover, among other things, anticipated future revenue and expenses and the future plans and prospects of U.S. Bancorp. Forward-looking statements involve inherent risks and uncertainties, and important factors could cause actual results to differ materially from those anticipated. A reversal or slowing of the current economic recovery or another severe contraction could adversely affect U.S. Bancorp’s revenues and the values of its assets and liabilities. Global financial markets could experience a recurrence of significant turbulence, which could reduce the availability of funding to certain financial institutions and lead to a tightening of credit, a reduction of business activity, and increased market volatility. Stress in the commercial real estate markets, as well as a downturn in the residential real estate markets could cause credit losses and deterioration in asset values. In addition, U.S. Bancorp’s business and financial performance is likely to be negatively impacted by recently enacted and future legislation and regulation. U.S. Bancorp’s results could also be adversely affected by deterioration in general business and economic conditions; changes in interest rates; deterioration in the credit quality of its loan portfolios or in the value of the collateral securing those loans; deterioration in the value of securities held in its investment securities portfolio; legal and regulatory developments; litigation; increased competition from both banks and non-banks; changes in customer behavior and preferences; breaches in data security; effects of mergers and acquisitions and related integration; effects of critical accounting policies and judgments; and management’s ability to effectively manage credit risk, market risk, operational risk, compliance risk, strategic risk, interest rate risk, liquidity risk and reputational risk.

For discussion of these and other risks that may cause actual results to differ from expectations, refer to U.S. Bancorp’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2015, on file with the Securities and Exchange Commission, including the sections entitled “Risk Factors” and “Corporate Risk Profile” contained in Exhibit 13, and all subsequent filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission under Sections 13(a), 13(c), 14 or 15(d) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934. However, factors other than these also could adversely affect U.S. Bancorp’s results, and the reader should not consider these factors to be a complete set of all potential risks or uncertainties. Forward-looking statements speak only as of the date hereof, and U.S. Bancorp undertakes no obligation to update them in light of new information or future events.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

In addition to capital ratios defined by banking regulators, the Company considers various other measures when evaluating capital utilization and adequacy, including:

  • Tangible common equity to tangible assets,
  • Tangible common equity to risk-weighted assets,
  • Common equity tier 1 capital to risk-weighted assets estimated for the Basel III fully implemented standardized approach, and
  • Common equity tier 1 capital to risk-weighted assets estimated for the Basel III fully implemented advanced approaches.

These measures are viewed by management as useful additional methods of reflecting the level of capital available to withstand unexpected market or economic conditions. Additionally, presentation of these measures allows investors, analysts and banking regulators to assess the Company’s capital position relative to other financial services companies. These measures differ from currently effective capital ratios defined by banking regulations principally in that the numerator includes unrealized gains and losses related to available-for-sale securities and excludes preferred securities, including preferred stock, the nature and extent of which varies among different financial services companies. These measures are not defined in generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”), or are not currently effective or defined in federal banking regulations. As a result, these measures disclosed by the Company may be considered non-GAAP financial measures.

There may be limits in the usefulness of these measures to investors. As a result, the Company encourages readers to consider the consolidated financial statements and other financial information contained in this press release in their entirety, and not to rely on any single financial measure. A table follows that shows the Company’s calculation of these non-GAAP financial measures.
