(a) Tangible common equity is a non-GAAP financial measure and represents total equity less preferred equity, noncontrolling interests, and goodwill and certain identifiable intangible assets (including goodwill and intangible assets associated with certain of our nonmarketable equity investments but excluding mortgage servicing rights), net of applicable deferred taxes. The methodology of determining tangible common equity may differ among companies. Management believes that return on average tangible common equity, which utilizes tangible common equity, is a useful financial measure because it enables investors and others to assess the Company's use of equity. For additional information, including a corresponding reconciliation to GAAP financial measures, see the "Tangible Common Equity" tables on page 32.

(b) The efficiency ratio is noninterest expense divided by total revenue (net interest income and noninterest income).

 

Wells Fargo & Company (NYSE:WFC) reported net income of $5.5 billion, or $1.00 per diluted common share, for first quarter 2017, compared with $5.5 billion, or $0.99 per share, for first quarter 2016, and $5.3 billion, or $0.96 per share, for fourth quarter 2016.

Chief Executive Officer Tim Sloan said, "Wells Fargo continued to make meaningful progress in the first quarter in rebuilding trust with customers and other important stakeholders, while producing solid financial results. We have taken significant actions throughout the company to date and we are committed to building a better bank as we move Wells Fargo forward. Earlier this week, the independent directors of Wells Fargo’s Board of Directors issued a report on their investigation into the company's retail banking sales practices. The findings are valuable to us and beneficial in helping to identify areas for further improvement. While we have more work to do, I am pleased with all we have accomplished thus far. Our 273,000 team members have remained committed to helping our customers succeed financially, as reflected in improved retail customer service scores, record levels of deposits, more primary consumer checking customers, record client assets in Wealth and Investment Management, and industry-leading mortgage originations."

Chief Financial Officer John Shrewsberry said, "Our diversified business model generated higher revenue and net income compared with last quarter, as well as higher ROA and ROE. Expenses were elevated compared with last quarter, driven by typically-higher first quarter personnel-related expenses. Credit results improved, with lower net charge-offs and nonaccrual loans, and we benefited from lower income tax expense. The balance sheet remained strong with high levels of capital and liquidity, and record deposits. We ended first quarter with Common Equity Tier 1 (fully phased-in) of $148.7 billion, or a Common Equity Tier 1 ratio (fully phased-in) of 11.2 percent2, and returned $3.1 billion to shareholders during the quarter, for a net payout ratio3 of 61 percent."

Net Interest Income

Net interest income in first quarter 2017 decreased $102 million from fourth quarter 2016 to $12.3 billion, primarily due to two fewer days in the quarter. The impact of balance declines in trading assets and mortgages held-for-sale, as well as lower income from variable sources, was offset by average balance growth in investment securities and the benefit from higher interest rates in the quarter.

Net interest margin was 2.87 percent, stable with fourth quarter 2016. The benefit of higher interest rates, a reduction in short-term market funding, and average balance growth in investment securities was offset by lower income from trading assets and mortgages held-for-sale, higher deposit and long-term debt balances, and lower income from variable sources.

Noninterest Income

Noninterest income in the first quarter was $9.7 billion, up from $9.2 billion in fourth quarter 2016, driven by higher other income and higher market-sensitive revenue, particularly in trading. These increases were partially offset by lower mortgage banking income, investment banking fees and commercial real estate brokerage commissions.

  • Net gain from trading activities was $439 million in the first quarter, compared with a net loss of $109 million in the fourth quarter. Results in the first quarter were driven by higher secondary trading, as well as higher deferred compensation plan investment results (offset in employee benefits expense).
  • Mortgage banking noninterest income was $1.2 billion, compared with $1.4 billion in fourth quarter 2016. As expected, residential mortgage loan originations declined in the first quarter, down to $44 billion, from $72 billion in the fourth quarter. The production margin on residential held-for-sale mortgage loan originations4 was 1.68 percent, in line with the fourth quarter. Mortgage servicing income increased to $456 million in the first quarter from $196 million in the fourth quarter, primarily due to lower unreimbursed servicing costs and lower prepayments.
  • Other income was $145 million, compared with $(382) million in the fourth quarter. First quarter 2017 included a $(193) million net hedge ineffectiveness accounting impact, resulting largely from foreign currency fluctuations, compared with a $(592) million net hedge ineffectiveness accounting impact in the fourth quarter, which reflected both an increase in interest rates and foreign currency fluctuations.

Noninterest Expense

Noninterest expense in the first quarter was $13.8 billion, compared with $13.2 billion in fourth quarter 2016. First quarter expenses included $790 million of seasonally higher employee benefits and incentive compensation expense, and an increase in deferred compensation expense (included in employee benefits expense and offset in revenue), partially offset by lower outside professional services, equipment, and advertising and promotion expenses, which typically decline in first quarter. The efficiency ratio increased to 62.7 percent in first quarter 2017, compared with 61.2 percent in the prior quarter. The Company currently expects the efficiency ratio to remain elevated.

Income Taxes

The Company’s effective income tax rate was 27.4 percent for first quarter 2017, compared with 30.0 percent in the prior quarter. The effective tax rate for the first quarter included discrete tax benefits totaling $197 million, of which $183 million resulted from tax benefits associated with stock compensation activity during the quarter which was subject to ASU 2016-09 accounting guidance adopted in first quarter 2017. The Company currently expects the full year 2017 tax rate to be approximately 30 percent.

Loans

Total average loans were $963.6 billion in the first quarter, down $502 million from the fourth quarter. Period-end loan balances were $958.4 billion at March 31, 2017, down $9.2 billion from December 31, 2016, driven by a decline in credit card balances due to seasonality, a slowdown in new credit card account openings, and a continued decline in junior lien mortgage loans. In addition, there was an expected decline in auto loans from the fourth quarter as continued proactive steps to tighten underwriting standards resulted in lower origination volume.

Cash, Cash Equivalents and Investment Securities

Cash, federal funds sold, securities purchased under resale agreements and other short-term investments reached an all-time high of $328.4 billion at March 31, 2017, up $41.7 billion from the fourth quarter, driven by deposit growth and a linked-quarter decline in the loan portfolio. Investment securities were $407.6 billion at March 31, 2017, down $387 million from the fourth quarter, as approximately $16 billion of purchases were more than offset by run-off and sales.

Net unrealized losses on available-for-sale securities were $1.2 billion at March 31, 2017, compared with net unrealized losses on available-for-sale securities of $1.8 billion at December 31, 2016, primarily due to tighter credit spreads during the quarter and a modest benefit from lower long-term interest rates.

Deposits

Total average deposits for first quarter 2017 were $1.3 trillion, up 1 percent from the prior quarter, driven by growth in consumer and small business, as well as commercial. The average deposit cost for first quarter 2017 was 17 basis points, up 5 basis points from the prior quarter and 7 basis points from a year ago, primarily driven by an increase in commercial deposit rates.

Capital

Capital levels remained strong in the first quarter, with a Common Equity Tier 1 ratio (fully phased-in) of 11.2 percent2, compared with 10.8 percent in the prior quarter. In first quarter 2017, the Company repurchased 53.1 million shares of its common stock, which reduced period-end common shares outstanding by 19.4 million after taking into account seasonally higher common stock issuances to employee benefit plans. The Company paid a quarterly common stock dividend of $0.38 per share, up from $0.375 per share a year ago.

Credit Quality

"First quarter credit results reflected strong performance in our commercial portfolios and consumer real estate portfolios," said Chief Risk Officer Mike Loughlin. "Improvement in the oil and gas portfolio, as well as continued improvement in residential real estate, drove a $200 million reserve release1 in the quarter."

Net Loan Charge-offs

The quarterly loss rate of 0.34 percent (annualized) reflected commercial losses of 0.11 percent and consumer losses of 0.59 percent. Credit losses were $805 million in first quarter 2017, down $100 million from fourth quarter 2016. Consumer losses increased $8 million, driven by higher credit card losses, predominantly offset by lower losses in 1-4 family junior lien mortgage and other revolving credit and installment portfolios. Commercial losses were down $108 million driven by lower oil and gas losses and increased recoveries.

Nonperforming Assets

Nonperforming assets decreased $698 million from fourth quarter 2016 to $10.7 billion. Nonaccrual loans decreased $625 million from fourth quarter to $9.8 billion reflecting declines across all major commercial asset classes, as well as continued lower consumer real estate nonaccruals.

Allowance for Credit Losses

The allowance for credit losses, including the allowance for unfunded commitments, totaled $12.3 billion at March 31, 2017, which was down $253 million from December 31, 2016. The allowance coverage for total loans was 1.28 percent, compared with 1.30 percent in fourth quarter 2016. The allowance covered 3.8 times annualized first quarter net charge-offs, compared with 3.5 times in the prior quarter. The allowance coverage for nonaccrual loans was 126 percent at March 31, 2017, compared with 121 percent at December 31, 2016. “We believe the allowance was appropriate for losses inherent in the loan portfolio at March 31, 2017,” said Loughlin.

7

Data as of February 2017, comparisons with February 2016.
8 Credit card penetration defined as the percentage of Retail Banking households that have a credit card with Wells Fargo. Effective second quarter 2016, Retail Banking households reflect only those households that maintain a retail checking account, which we believe provides the foundation for long-term retail banking relationships. Prior period metrics have been revised to conform with the updated definition of Retail Banking households. Credit card household penetration rates have not been adjusted to reflect the impact of the approximately 565,000 potentially unauthorized accounts identified by an independent consulting firm because the maximum impact in any one quarter was not greater than 86 basis points, or approximately 2 percent.
9 Primarily includes retail banking, consumer lending, small business and business banking customers.
 

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;
  • negative effects from the retail banking sales practices matter, including on our legal, operational and compliance costs, our ability to engage in certain business activities or offer certain products or services, our ability to keep and attract customers, our ability to attract and retain qualified team members, and our reputation;
  • 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, 2016.

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, 2016, 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.

(1) Tangible common equity is a non-GAAP financial measure and represents total equity less preferred equity, noncontrolling interests, and goodwill and certain identifiable intangible assets (including goodwill and intangible assets associated with certain of our nonmarketable equity investments but excluding mortgage servicing rights), net of applicable deferred taxes. The methodology of determining tangible common equity may differ among companies. Management believes that return on average tangible common equity and tangible book value per common share, which utilize tangible common equity, are useful financial measures because they enable investors and others to assess the Company's use of equity. For additional information, including a corresponding reconciliation to GAAP financial measures, see the "Tangible Common Equity" tables on page 32.

(2) The efficiency ratio is noninterest expense divided by total revenue (net interest income and noninterest income).

(3) Pre-tax pre-provision profit (PTPP) is total revenue less noninterest expense. Management believes that PTPP is a useful financial measure because it enables investors and others to assess the Company’s ability to generate capital to cover credit losses through a credit cycle.

(4) Consumer and small business banking deposits are total deposits excluding mortgage escrow and wholesale deposits.

(5) Book value per common share is common stockholders' equity divided by common shares outstanding. Tangible book value per common share is tangible common equity divided by common shares outstanding.

CHANGES IN ACCRETABLE YIELD RELATED TO PURCHASED CREDIT-IMPAIRED (PCI) LOANS

 

Loans purchased with evidence of credit deterioration since origination and for which it is probable that all contractually required payments will not be collected are considered to be credit impaired. PCI loans predominantly represent loans acquired from Wachovia that were deemed to be credit impaired. Evidence of credit quality deterioration as of the purchase date may include statistics such as past due and nonaccrual status, recent borrower credit scores and recent LTV percentages. PCI loans are initially measured at fair value, which includes estimated future credit losses expected to be incurred over the life of the loan. Accordingly, the associated allowance for credit losses related to these loans is not carried over at the acquisition date.

 
As a result of PCI loan accounting, certain credit-related ratios cannot be used to compare a portfolio that includes PCI loans against one that does not, or to compare ratios across quarters or years. The ratios particularly affected include the allowance for loan losses and allowance for credit losses as percentages of loans, of nonaccrual loans and of nonperforming assets; nonaccrual loans and nonperforming assets as a percentage of total loans; and net charge-offs as a percentage of loans.
 
The excess of cash flows expected to be collected over the carrying value of PCI loans is referred to as the accretable yield and is accreted into interest income over the estimated lives of the PCI loans using the effective yield method. The accretable yield is affected by:
     

   

Changes in interest rate indices for variable rate PCI loans - Expected future cash flows are based on the variable rates in effect at the time of the quarterly assessment of expected cash flows;

Changes in prepayment assumptions - Prepayments affect the estimated life of PCI loans which may change the amount of interest income, and possibly principal, expected to be collected; and

Changes in the expected principal and interest payments over the estimated life - Updates to changes in expected cash flows are driven by the credit outlook and actions taken with borrowers. Changes in expected future cash flows from loan modifications are included in the regular evaluations of cash flows expected to be collected.

 
The change in the accretable yield related to PCI loans since the merger with Wachovia is presented in the following table.

Changes in expected cash flows that do not affect nonaccretable difference (4)     (927 )   5,699  
Balance, end of period   $ 10,315     11,216  

(1) Includes accretable yield released as a result of settlements with borrowers, which is included in interest income.

(2) Includes accretable yield released as a result of sales to third parties, which is included in noninterest income.

(3) At March 31, 2017, our carrying value for PCI loans totaled $15.7 billion and the remainder of nonaccretable difference established in purchase accounting totaled $585 million. The nonaccretable difference absorbs losses of contractual amounts that exceed our carrying value for PCI loans.

(4) Represents changes in cash flows expected to be collected due to the impact of modifications, changes in prepayment assumptions, changes in interest rates on variable rate PCI loans and sales to third parties.

(1) The individual states shown in this table represent the top five states based on the total net carrying value of the Pick-a-Pay loans at the beginning of 2017.

(2) Adjusted unpaid principal balance includes write-downs taken on loans where severe delinquency (normally 180 days) or other indications of severe borrower financial stress exist that indicate there will be a loss of contractually due amounts upon final resolution of the loan.

(3) The current LTV ratio is calculated as the adjusted unpaid principal balance divided by the collateral value. Collateral values are generally determined using automated valuation models (AVM) and are updated quarterly. AVMs are computer-based tools used to estimate market values of homes based on processing large volumes of market data including market comparables and price trends for local market areas.

(4) Carrying value, which does not reflect the allowance for loan losses, includes remaining purchase accounting adjustments, which, for PCI loans may include the nonaccretable difference and the accretable yield and, for all other loans, an adjustment to mark the loans to a market yield at date of merger less any subsequent charge-offs.

(5) The ratio of carrying value to current value is calculated as the carrying value divided by the collateral value.

(1) Tangible common equity is a non-GAAP financial measure and represents total equity less preferred equity, noncontrolling interests, and goodwill and certain identifiable intangible assets (including goodwill and intangible assets associated with certain of our nonmarketable equity investments but excluding mortgage servicing rights), net of applicable deferred taxes. The methodology of determining tangible common equity may differ among companies. Management believes that return on average tangible common equity and tangible book value per common share, which utilize tangible common equity, are useful financial measures because they enable investors and others to assess the Company's use of equity.

(2) Represents goodwill and other intangibles on nonmarketable equity investments, which are included in other assets.

(3) Applicable deferred taxes relate to goodwill and other intangible assets. They were determined by applying the combined federal statutory rate and composite state income tax rates to the difference between book and tax basis of the respective goodwill and intangible assets at period end.

(1) Basel III capital rules, adopted by the Federal Reserve Board on July 2, 2013, revised the definition of capital, increased minimum capital ratios, and introduced a minimum Common Equity Tier 1 (CET1) ratio. These rules established a new comprehensive capital framework for U.S. banking organizations that implements the Basel III capital framework and certain provisions of the Dodd-Frank Act. The rules are being phased in through the end of 2021. Fully phased-in capital amounts, ratios and RWAs are calculated assuming the full phase-in of the Basel III capital rules. Fully phased-in regulatory capital amounts, ratios and RWAs are considered non-GAAP financial measures that are used by management, bank regulatory agencies, investors and analysts to assess and monitor the Company’s capital position.

(2) Represents goodwill and other intangibles on nonmarketable equity investments, which are included in other assets.

(3) Applicable deferred taxes relate to goodwill and other intangible assets. They were determined by applying the combined federal statutory rate and composite state income tax rates to the difference between book and tax basis of the respective goodwill and intangible assets at period end.

(4) The final Basel III capital rules provide for two capital frameworks: the Standardized Approach, which replaced Basel I, and the Advanced Approach applicable to certain institutions. Under the final rules, we are subject to the lower of our CET1 ratio calculated under the Standardized Approach and under the Advanced Approach in the assessment of our capital adequacy. Because the final determination of our CET1 ratio and which approach will produce the lower CET1 ratio as of March 31, 2017, is subject to detailed analysis of considerable data, our CET1 ratio at that date has been estimated using the Basel III definition of capital under the Basel III Standardized Approach RWAs. The capital ratio for December 31, September 30, June 30, and March 31, 2016, was calculated under the Basel III Standardized Approach RWAs.

(5) The Company’s March 31, 2017, RWAs and capital ratio are preliminary estimates.
