From Bill Demchak, PNC Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer:

















   "In the first quarter, PNC grew loans, deployed liquidity through securities purchases, controlled expenses and maintained strong credit quality. In addition to normal seasonality, fee income was adversely impacted by a general slowdown in capital markets activity; nevertheless, our financial results were solid. Based on this performance, our strong capital levels and the board's confidence in PNC's execution of its strategic priorities, we increased the quarterly common stock dividend by 20% in April."

  • Total revenue of $4.7 billion decreased $435 million, or 8%, primarily due to lower noninterest income.

  • Noninterest income of $1.9 billion, which included $16 million of integration costs, decreased $377 million, or 17%.

  • Average loans of $290.7 billion increased $1.8 billion, or 1%.

    • Average consumer loans of $95.1 billion were stable.
  • Credit quality performance:
    • Delinquencies of $1.7 billion decreased $286 million, or 14%, primarily due to progress resolving BBVA USA conversion-related administrative and operational delays.

Net interest income of $2.8 billion for the first quarter of 2022 decreased $58 million compared to the fourth quarter of 2021 as increased average securities balances, loans outstanding and securities yields were more than offset by a decline in PPP loan interest income and two fewer days in the first quarter.

Noninterest income for the first quarter of 2022 decreased $377 million compared with the fourth quarter of 2021. The first quarter of 2022 included $16 million of integration costs compared to $47 million in the fourth quarter of 2021. Asset management and brokerage fees decreased $8 million primarily as a result of lower average equity markets. Capital markets related revenue declined $208 million primarily due to lower merger and acquisition advisory fees, in part due to transactions being delayed. Card and cash management revenue decreased $26 million primarily due to seasonally lower transaction volumes and activity. Lending and deposit services declined $4 million and included lower loan commitment fees as a result of higher utilization rates. Residential and commercial mortgage revenue was $50 million lower primarily due to decreased revenue from commercial mortgage banking activities. Other noninterest income decreased $81 million, primarily reflecting lower private equity revenue.

Noninterest income for the first quarter of 2022 increased $16 million compared with the first quarter of 2021. Asset management and brokerage fees increased $49 million primarily as a result of higher average equity markets and the benefit of BBVA USA. Capital markets related revenue decreased $59 million primarily due to a decline in advisory business activity and decreased underwriting fees. Card and cash management revenue grew $128 million due to the addition of BBVA USA customers and higher treasury management product revenue. Lending and deposit services increased $15 million due to the benefit of BBVA USA. Residential and commercial mortgage revenue decreased $28 million and included lower revenue from commercial mortgage banking activities. Other noninterest income decreased $89 million and included lower private equity revenue and a net securities loss of $4 million in the first quarter of 2022 compared to a net securities gain of $25 million in the first quarter of 2021.

Integration expenses were $15 million in the first quarter of 2022 and $391 million in the fourth quarter of 2021. Excluding the impact of integration expenses, noninterest expense was $3,157 million and $3,400 million, respectively, for the first quarter of 2022 and fourth quarter of 2021, decreasing $243 million, or 7%, driven by a decline in personnel costs reflecting lower incentive compensation related to decreased business activity as well as seasonally lower costs.

Noninterest expense increased $598 million in comparison with the first quarter of 2021 primarily driven by the addition of operating expenses from BBVA USA.

The effective tax rate was 17.3% for the first quarter of 2022, 21.5% for the fourth quarter of 2021 and 16.9% for the first quarter of 2021.

CONSOLIDATED BALANCE SHEET REVIEW

Average total assets were $550.1 billion in the first quarter of 2022 compared with $559.4 billion in the fourth quarter of 2021 and $468.2 billion in the first quarter of 2021. Compared to the fourth quarter of 2021, the decrease resulted from lower Federal Reserve Bank balances. In comparison to the first quarter of 2021, the increase was primarily driven by the BBVA USA acquisition.

Average investment securities for the first quarter of 2022 were $133.9 billion, increasing $6.1 billion and $47.5 billion from the fourth quarter of 2021 and first quarter of 2021, respectively, reflecting securities purchases, primarily of U.S. Treasury and government agency securities. Compared to the first quarter of 2021, the increase was also attributable to BBVA USA.

Investment securities at March 31, 2022 of $132.4 billion decreased $0.6 billion compared to the fourth quarter of 2021, as net purchases during the quarter were more than offset by net unrealized losses on available for sale securities, reflecting the impact of higher interest rates. Net unrealized losses on available for sale securities were $4.3 billion at March 31, 2022, compared with  net unrealized gains of $0.7 billion at December 31, 2021 and $2.0 billion at March 31, 2021. On March 31, 2022, PNC transferred $20.0 billion of available for sale securities, net of $1.3 billion of unrealized losses, to held to maturity securities. 

Average Federal Reserve Bank balances for the first quarter of 2022 were $62.3 billion, decreasing $12.8 billion and $22.9 billion from the fourth quarter of 2021 and the first quarter of 2021, respectively. The decrease in both comparisons reflects the impact of securities purchases, lower borrowed funds and higher loans outstanding. In comparison to the first quarter of 2021, the decrease was partially offset by higher deposits.

PNC maintained a strong capital position. Common shareholders' equity at March 31, 2022 decreased $6.5 billion from December 31, 2021 as the benefit of first quarter net income was more than offset by a decrease in accumulated other comprehensive income, reflecting the impact of higher rates on net unrealized securities losses, as well as share repurchases and dividends paid in the first quarter.

In the first quarter of 2022, PNC returned $1.7 billion of capital to shareholders through $1.2 billion of common share repurchases, representing 6.4 million shares, and $0.5 billion of dividends on common shares. Applying the Stress Capital Buffer (SCB) framework, which allows for capital return in amounts up to the level of capital in excess of the SCB minimum, our board of directors has recently authorized a new repurchase framework, under the already approved authorization for repurchases of up to 100 million common shares of which approximately 64% were still available for repurchase at March 31, 2022. This framework allows for the continuation of our recent quarterly average share repurchase levels as well as the flexibility to increase those levels should conditions warrant.

On April 1, 2022, the PNC board of directors raised the quarterly cash dividend on common stock to $1.50 per share, an increase of 25 cents per share, or 20%, effective with the May 5, 2022 dividend payment.

For information regarding PNC's Basel III capital ratios, see Capital Ratios in the Consolidated Financial Highlights. PNC elected a five-year transition provision effective March 31, 2020 to delay until December 31, 2021 the full impact of the Current Expected Credit Losses (CECL) standard on regulatory capital, followed by a three-year transition period. Effective for the first quarter 2022, PNC is now in the three-year transition period, and the full impact of the CECL standard is being phased-in to regulatory capital over the next three years. The fully implemented ratios reflect the full impact of CECL and exclude the benefits of this transition provision.

The first quarter of 2022 included a provision recapture of $208 million, primarily reflecting the impact of improved COVID-19 related economic conditions. The fourth quarter of 2021 included a provision recapture of $327 million.

Net loan charge-offs were $137 million in the first quarter of 2022, increasing $13 million from the fourth quarter of 2021 driven by modest increases in both consumer and commercial net loan  charge-offs. Compared to the first quarter of 2021, net loan charge-offs decreased $9 million.

The allowance for credit losses was $5.2 billion at March 31, 2022, $5.5 billion at December 31, 2021 and $5.2 billion at March 31, 2021. The allowance for credit losses as a percentage of total loans was 1.76% at March 31, 2022, 1.92% at December 31, 2021 and 2.20% at March 31, 2021.

Nonperforming loans were $2.3 billion at March 31, 2022, decreasing $182 million compared to December 31, 2021, driven by lower commercial nonperforming loans. Nonperforming loans increased $160 million compared to March 31, 2021, due to nonperforming loans from the BBVA USA acquisition.

Delinquencies at March 31, 2022 of $1.7 billion decreased $286 million compared to December 31, 2021, reflecting lower consumer and commercial loan delinquencies of $240 million and $46 million, respectively. The decrease in total delinquencies was primarily due to progress resolving BBVA USA conversion-related administrative and operational delays. Compared to the first quarter of 2021, total delinquencies increased $553 million related to delinquencies from the BBVA USA acquisition.

Retail Banking Highlights

First quarter 2022 compared with fourth quarter 2021

  • Earnings decreased 6% due to lower net interest income, lower noninterest income and higher noninterest expense, partially offset by a provision recapture.
    • Noninterest income decreased 4%, primarily driven by seasonally lower card and cash management fees.
    • Provision recapture of $81 million for the first quarter of 2022, reflecting the impact of improved COVID-19 related economic conditions and changes in portfolio composition. The fourth quarter included a provision for credit losses of $55 million.

(a)

Dividends are payable quarterly other than Series R and Series S preferred stock, which are payable semiannually.

(b)

The effective income tax rates are generally lower than the statutory rate due to the relationship of pretax income to tax credits and earnings that are not subject to tax.

(c)

Net interest margin is the total yield on interest-earning assets minus the total rate on interest-bearing liabilities and includes the benefit from use of noninterest-bearing sources. To provide more meaningful comparisons of net interest margins, we use net interest income on a taxable-equivalent basis in calculating average yields used in the calculation of net interest margin by increasing the interest income earned on tax-exempt assets to make it fully equivalent to interest income earned on taxable investments. This adjustment is not permitted under generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP) in the Consolidated Income Statement. The taxable-equivalent adjustments to net interest income for the three months ended March 31, 2022, December 31, 2021 and March 31, 2021 were $22 million, $22 million and $15 million, respectively.

(d)

Calculated as noninterest expense divided by total revenue.

CAPITAL RATIOS

PNC's regulatory risk-based capital ratios in 2022 are calculated using the standardized approach for determining risk-weighted assets. Under the standardized approach for determining credit risk-weighted assets, exposures are generally assigned a pre-defined risk weight. Exposures to high volatility commercial real estate, past due exposures and equity exposures are generally subject to higher risk weights than other types of exposures.

PNC elected a five-year transition provision effective March 31, 2020 to delay until December 31, 2021 the full impact of the CECL standard on regulatory capital, followed by a three-year transition period. Effective for the first quarter 2022, PNC is now in the three-year transition period, and the full impact of the CECL standard is being phased-in to regulatory capital over the next three years. See the table below for the December 31, 2021, March 31, 2021 and estimated March 31, 2022 ratios. For the full impact of PNC's adoption of CECL, which excludes the benefits of the five-year transition provision, see the March 31, 2022 and December 31, 2021 (Fully Implemented) estimates presented in the table below.

Our Basel III capital ratios may be impacted by changes to the regulatory capital rules and additional regulatory guidance or analysis.

Pretax pre-provision earnings is a non-GAAP measure and is based on adjusting income before income taxes and noncontrolling interests to exclude provision for (recapture of) credit losses. We believe that pretax, pre-provision earnings is a useful tool to help evaluate the ability to provide for credit costs through operations and provides an additional basis to compare results between periods by isolating the impact of provision for (recapture of) credit losses, which can vary significantly between periods.

Pretax pre-provision earnings excluding integration costs is a non-GAAP measure and is based on adjusting pretax pre-provision earnings to exclude integration costs during the period. We believe that pretax, pre-provision earnings excluding integration costs is a useful tool in understanding PNC's results by providing greater comparability between periods, as well as demonstrating the effect of significant items.

The adjusted diluted earnings per common share excluding integration costs is a non-GAAP measure and excludes the integration costs related to the BBVA USA acquisition. It is calculated based on adjusting net income attributable to diluted common shareholders by removing post-tax integration costs in the period. We believe this non-GAAP measure serves as a useful tool in understanding PNC's results by providing greater comparability between periods, as well as demonstrating the effect of significant items.

Tangible book value per common share is a non-GAAP measure and is calculated based on tangible common shareholders' equity divided by period-end common shares outstanding. We believe this non-GAAP measure serves as a useful tool to help evaluate the strength and discipline of a company's capital management strategies and as an additional, conservative measure of total company value.

The interest income earned on certain earning assets is completely or partially exempt from federal income tax. As such, these tax-exempt instruments typically yield lower returns than taxable investments. To provide more meaningful comparisons of net interest income, we use interest income on a taxable-equivalent basis by increasing the interest income earned on tax-exempt assets to make it fully equivalent to interest income earned on taxable investments. This adjustment is not permitted under GAAP. Taxable equivalent net interest income is only used for calculating net interest margin and net interest income shown elsewhere in this presentation is GAAP net interest income.

The efficiency ratio excluding integration costs is a non-GAAP measure and excludes the integration costs related to the BBVA USA acquisition. It is calculated based on adjusting the efficiency ratio calculation by excluding integration costs during the period from noninterest expense and total revenue. We believe that this non-GAAP measure is a useful tool for the purpose of evaluating PNC's results. The exclusion of integration costs increases comparability across periods, demonstrates the impact of significant items and provides a useful measure for determining PNC's revenue and expenses that are core to our business operations and expected to recur over time.

Cautionary Statement Regarding Forward-Looking Information

We make statements in this news release and related conference call, and we may from time to time make other statements, regarding our outlook for financial performance, such as earnings, revenues, expenses, tax rates, capital and liquidity levels and ratios, asset levels, asset quality, financial position, and other matters regarding or affecting us and our future business and operations that are forward-looking statements within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act. Forward-looking statements are typically identified by words such as "believe," "plan," "expect," "anticipate," "see," "look," "intend," "outlook," "project," "forecast," "estimate," "goal," "will," "should" and other similar words and expressions.

Forward-looking statements are necessarily subject to numerous assumptions, risks and uncertainties, which change over time.  Future events or circumstances may change our outlook and may also affect the nature of the assumptions, risks and uncertainties to which our forward-looking statements are subject.  Forward-looking statements speak only as of the date made.  We do not assume any duty and do not undertake any obligation to update forward-looking statements.  Actual results or future events could differ, possibly materially, from those anticipated in forward-looking statements, as well as from historical performance.  As a result, we caution against placing undue reliance on any forward-looking statements.

Our forward-looking statements are subject to the following principal risks and uncertainties.

  • Our businesses, financial results and balance sheet values are affected by business and economic conditions, including:
    • Changes in interest rates and valuations in debt, equity and other financial markets,
    • Disruptions in the U.S. and global financial markets,
    • Actions by the Federal Reserve Board, U.S. Treasury and other government agencies, including those that impact money supply and market interest rates and inflation,
    • Changes in customer behavior due to changing business and economic conditions or legislative or regulatory initiatives,
    • Changes in customers', suppliers' and other counterparties' performance and creditworthiness,
    • Impacts of tariffs and other trade policies of the U.S. and its global trading partners,
    • The length and extent of the economic impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic,
    • Impacts of changes in federal, state and local governmental policy, including on the regulatory landscape, capital markets, taxes, infrastructure spending and social programs, and
    • Commodity price volatility.
  • Our forward-looking financial statements are subject to the risk that economic and financial market conditions will be substantially different than those we are currently expecting and do not take into account potential legal and regulatory contingencies. These statements are based on our views that:
    • The U.S. economy continues to recover from the pandemic-caused recession in the first half of 2020. Growth is likely to remain above the economy's long-run average throughout this year. Consumer spending growth will remain solid in 2022 due to good underlying fundamentals.
    • Supply-chain difficulties will gradually ease over the course of 2022. Labor shortages will remain a constraint this year, although strong wage growth will support consumer spending.
    • Inflation accelerated in the second half of 2021 to its fastest pace in decades due to strong demand but limited supplies coming out of the pandemic for some goods and services. Higher energy prices are adding to inflationary pressures in the first half of 2022. Inflation will slow in the second half of 2022 as pandemic-related supply and demand imbalances recede and energy prices stabilize. However, inflation will also broaden throughout the economy due to wage growth. Inflation will end 2022 above the Federal Reserve's long-run objective of 2%.
    • PNC expects the Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) to raise the federal funds rate by 0.50% in May, 0.25% in June, 0.50% in July, 0.25% in September and 0.25% in December to reach a range of 2.00% to 2.25% by the end of the year. The FOMC will then further increase the federal funds rate in 2023. Also, the Federal Reserve will start to reduce its balance sheet in the next few months.
    • Uncertainty about the outlook has increased with the Russian invasion of Ukraine. It has created upside risk to inflation this year, which could lead the FOMC to tighten more aggressively than currently anticipated. In addition, risks to growth are to the downside. The likelihood of a recession in late 2022 or 2023 has increased.
  • PNC's ability to take certain capital actions, including returning capital to shareholders, is subject to PNC meeting or exceeding a stress capital buffer established by the Federal Reserve Board in connection with the Federal Reserve Board's Comprehensive Capital Analysis and Review (CCAR) process.
  • PNC's regulatory capital ratios in the future will depend on, among other things, the company's financial performance, the scope and terms of final capital regulations then in effect and management actions affecting the composition of PNC's balance sheet. In addition, PNC's ability to determine, evaluate and forecast regulatory capital ratios, and to take actions (such as capital distributions) based on actual or forecasted capital ratios, will be dependent at least in part on the development, validation and regulatory review of related models.
Cautionary Statement Regarding Forward-Looking Information (Continued) 
  • Legal and regulatory developments could have an impact on our ability to operate our businesses, financial condition, results of operations, competitive position, reputation, or pursuit of attractive acquisition opportunities. Reputational impacts could affect matters such as business generation and retention, liquidity, funding, and ability to attract and retain management. These developments could include:
    • Changes to laws and regulations, including changes affecting oversight of the financial services industry, consumer protection, bank capital and liquidity standards, pension, bankruptcy and other industry aspects, and changes in accounting policies and principles.
    • Unfavorable resolution of legal proceedings or other claims and regulatory and other governmental investigations or other inquiries. These matters may result in monetary judgments or settlements or other remedies, including fines, penalties, restitution or alterations in our business practices, and in additional expenses and collateral costs, and may cause reputational harm to PNC.
    • Results of the regulatory examination and supervision process, including our failure to satisfy requirements of agreements with governmental agencies.
  • Impact on business and operating results of any costs associated with obtaining rights in intellectual property claimed by others and of adequacy of our intellectual property protection in general.
  • Business and operating results are affected by our ability to identify and effectively manage risks inherent in our businesses, including, where appropriate, through effective use of systems and controls, third-party insurance, derivatives, and capital management techniques, and to meet evolving regulatory capital and liquidity standards.
  • We grow our business in part through acquisitions and new strategic initiatives. Risks and uncertainties include those presented by the nature of the business acquired and strategic initiative, including in some cases those associated with our entry into new businesses or new geographic or other markets and risks resulting from our inexperience in those new areas, as well as risks and uncertainties related to the acquisition transactions themselves, regulatory issues, and the integration of the acquired businesses into PNC after closing. Many of these risks and uncertainties are present in our acquisition and integration of BBVA USA Bancshares, Inc., including its U.S. banking subsidiary, BBVA USA.
  • Competition can have an impact on customer acquisition, growth and retention and on credit spreads and product pricing, which can affect market share, deposits and revenues.  Our ability to anticipate and respond to technological changes can also impact our ability to respond to customer needs and meet competitive demands.
  • Business and operating results can also be affected by widespread natural and other disasters, pandemics, dislocations, terrorist activities, system failures, security breaches, cyberattacks or international hostilities through impacts on the economy and financial markets generally or on us or our counterparties specifically.

We provide greater detail regarding these as well as other factors in our 2021 Form 10-K, including in the Risk Factors and Risk Management sections and the Legal Proceedings and Commitments Notes of the Notes To Consolidated Financial Statements in that report, and in our other subsequent SEC filings. Our forward-looking statements may also be subject to other risks and uncertainties, including those we may discuss elsewhere in this news release or in our SEC filings, accessible on the SEC's website at www.sec.gov and on our corporate website at www.pnc.com/secfilings. We have included these web addresses as inactive textual references only. Information on these websites is not part of this document.
