Northern Trust Corporation Reports First Quarter Net Income of $164.0 Million, Earnings Per Common Share of $0.67.

Northern Trust Corporation today reported first quarter net income per common share of $0.67, up from $0.66 in the first quarter of 2012 and down from $0.69 in the fourth quarter of 2012. Net income was $164.0 million in the current quarter, up 2% from $161.2 million in the prior year first quarter, and down 2% from $167.7 million in the prior quarter. Return on equity was 8.8% in both the current and prior quarters, and 9.0% in the prior year quarter.

Frederick H. Waddell, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, commented, “Our financial performance in the first quarter benefited from strong new business from both personal and institutional clients, as well as higher equity markets. Trust, investment and other servicing fees, which represent 65% of our revenue, grew 10% compared to last year and assets under custody and under management grew 9% and 13%, respectively, compared to last year.

In March, we were pleased to announce a planned increase in our quarterly dividend to $0.31 per common share, and a new share repurchase authorization. These announced actions are part of our capital plan, which was reviewed without objection by the Federal Reserve, demonstrating the strength of our financial position."

FIRST QUARTER 2013 PERFORMANCE VS. FIRST QUARTER 2012

Net income per common share in the first quarter of 2013 was $0.67 compared to $0.66 per common share in the first quarter of 2012. Net income for the current quarter was $164.0 million, up 2% from $161.2 million in the prior year quarter. The current quarter includes a $12.4 million write-off of certain fee receivables resulting from the correction of an accrual methodology followed in prior years, as well as restructuring and integration related charges of $1.8 million. These current quarter items total $14.2 million ($8.9 million after tax, or $0.04 per common share). The prior year quarter included restructuring, acquisition and integration related charges of $3.9 million ($2.6 million after tax, or $0.01 per common share).

Consolidated revenue of $976.4 million in the current quarter was up $11.0 million, or 1%, from $965.4 million in the prior year quarter. Noninterest income, which represented 77% of revenue, increased $41.3 million, or 6%, to $750.3 million from the prior year quarter’s $709.0 million, primarily reflecting higher trust, investment and other servicing fees. Net interest income for the quarter on a fully taxable equivalent (FTE) basis decreased $32.6 million, or 12%, to $233.7 million compared to $266.3 million in the prior year quarter, primarily due to a continued decline in the net interest margin and lower average earning assets.

Trust, investment and other servicing fees were $630.7 million in the current quarter, up $55.5 million, or 10%, from $575.2 million in the prior year quarter. The increase primarily reflects new business and the favorable impact of equity markets on fees.

Assets under custody and assets under management are the primary drivers of our trust, investment and other servicing fees. The following table provides Northern Trust’s assets under custody and assets under management by business segment.

Total $348.7 $ 317.0 $ 31.7 10 %

Custody and fund administration fees, the largest component of C&IS fees, increased 7%, primarily reflecting the favorable impact of equity markets on fees and new business. C&IS investment management fees increased 22%, reflecting new business, the favorable impact of markets, and lower waived fees in money market mutual funds. Money market mutual fund fee waivers in C&IS, attributable to persistent low short-term interest rates, totaled $8.8 million in the current quarter, compared to waived fees of $10.6 million in the prior year quarter. Securities lending revenue increased 4%, primarily reflecting higher spreads and loan volumes in the current quarter.

Trust, investment and other servicing fees in Personal Financial Services (PFS) totaled $282.0 million in the current quarter, increasing $23.8 million, or 9%, from $258.2 million in the prior year quarter. The increased fees in the current quarter are primarily attributable to new business and the favorable impact of equity markets on fees. Money market mutual fund fee waivers in PFS totaled $13.4 million in the current quarter compared with $14.8 million in the prior year quarter.

Foreign exchange trading income totaled $59.5 million, down 4% compared with $61.9 million in the prior year quarter. The current quarter decrease is attributable to lower currency market volatility compared to the prior year quarter.

Net interest income for the quarter on an FTE basis totaled $233.7 million, down $32.6 million, or 12%, compared to $266.3 million in the prior year quarter. The decrease reflects a continued decline in the net interest margin to 1.15% from 1.24% in the prior year quarter and lower average earning assets. The current quarter decline in the net interest margin primarily reflects lower yields on earning assets and a lower level of demand deposits, partially offset by a lower cost of interest-bearing liabilities. Average earning assets for the quarter were $82.2 billion, down $3.9 billion, or 5%, from $86.1 billion in the prior year quarter, primarily reflecting decreased Federal Reserve deposits.

The provision for credit losses was $5.0 million in both the current quarter and prior year quarter.

C&IS custody and fund administration fees were down slightly, as the benefits of higher equity markets and new business were offset by the unfavorable impact of foreign exchange rates on fees and lower sub-custodian recoveries. Investment management fees increased slightly, as new business and the favorable impact of markets on fees were offset by higher waived fees on money market mutual funds.

Net interest income on an FTE basis in the current quarter totaled $233.7 million, down $9.9 million, or 4%, compared to $243.6 million in the prior quarter. The decrease reflects a continued decline in the net interest margin and lower average earning assets.

STOCKHOLDERS’ EQUITY

During the quarter ended March 31, 2013, the Corporation repurchased 1,403,366 shares at a cost of $74.5 million ($53.08 average price per share). Under our capital plan, which was reviewed without objection by the Federal Reserve in March of 2013, the Corporation may repurchase up to $400.0 million of common stock after March 31, 2013 through March of 2014.

As reflected in the table below, the risk-based capital ratios of Northern Trust and its principal subsidiary bank, The Northern Trust Company, remained strong at March 31, 2013, with all ratios exceeding the U.S. regulatory requirements for classification as a “well capitalized” institution.

RECONCILIATION OF REPORTED NET INTEREST INCOME TO FULLY TAXABLE EQUIVALENT

Net interest income stated on an FTE basis is a non-GAAP financial measure that facilitates the analysis of asset yields. Management believes an FTE presentation provides a clearer indication of net interest margins for comparative purposes. When adjusted to an FTE basis, yields on taxable, nontaxable, and partially taxable assets are comparable; however, the adjustment to an FTE basis has no impact on net income. The tables below present a reconciliation of interest income and net interest income prepared in accordance with GAAP to interest income and net interest income on an FTE basis.
