  • Total revenue grew $176 million, or 5 percent, to $4.1 billion, and PNC continued to generate positive operating leverage.

Total revenue for the second quarter of 2017 grew $176 million compared with the first quarter and $266 million compared with the second quarter of 2016. Both net interest income and noninterest income increased in the comparisons. 

Net interest income for the second quarter of 2017 increased $98 million compared with the first quarter and $190 million compared with the second quarter of 2016. Higher loan yields and balances were partially offset by higher borrowing and deposit costs in both comparisons. Additionally, second quarter 2017 benefited from an additional day compared with the first quarter and from the impact of the loan and lease portfolio obtained through a business acquisition. Higher securities balances and yields also contributed to the increase in the comparison with second quarter 2016.

The net interest margin increased to 2.84 percent for the second quarter of 2017 compared with 2.77 percent for the first quarter and 2.70 percent for the second quarter of 2016. The second quarter 2017 margin reflected the benefit from higher interest rates in the quarter.

Noninterest income for the second quarter of 2017 increased $78 million compared with the first quarter driven by fee income growth. Consumer service fees grew $28 million primarily due to seasonally higher debit card, credit card and merchant services activity. Corporate service fees increased $41 million primarily as a result of higher loan syndication and treasury management fees. Residential mortgage revenue decreased $9 million reflecting lower servicing fees. Other noninterest income increased $14 million and included higher revenue from commercial mortgage loans held for sale activities and higher operating lease income related to the acquired business. Increases were partially offset by the impact of a first quarter benefit from valuation adjustments on equity investments subject to the Volcker Rule provisions of the Dodd-Frank Act.

Noninterest income for the second quarter of 2017 increased $76 million compared with the second quarter of 2016. Asset management revenue, which includes earnings from PNC's equity investment in BlackRock, grew $21 million reflecting higher equity markets. Corporate service fees increased $31 million due to higher capital markets revenue and treasury management fees. Residential mortgage revenue decreased $61 million from lower loan sales revenue and lower net hedging gains on mortgage servicing rights. Other noninterest income increased $72 million and included the impact of second quarter 2016 negative valuation adjustments on equity investments subject to the Volcker Rule, higher revenue from commercial mortgage loans held for sale activities and higher operating lease income partially offset by the impact of second quarter 2016 net gains on the sale of Visa Class B common shares.

Noninterest expense for the second quarter of 2017 increased $77 million compared with the first quarter. Second quarter expense reflected seasonally higher business activity and marketing activity, and included the impact of operating expense related to the acquired business. These increases were partially offset by seasonally lower occupancy expense. Noninterest expense increased $119 million compared with the second quarter of 2016 reflecting overall higher levels of business activity and ongoing investments in technology and business infrastructure as PNC remained focused on disciplined expense management.

The effective tax rate was 26.0 percent for the second quarter of 2017, 23.0 percent for the first quarter of 2017 and 24.3 percent for the second quarter of 2016. The increase in the effective tax rate over the first quarter resulted from the impact of first quarter tax deductions related to stock-based compensation and higher pretax earnings.

CONSOLIDATED BALANCE SHEET REVIEW

Total assets were $372.2 billion at June 30, 2017 compared with $370.9 billion at March 31, 2017 and $361.3 billion at June 30, 2016. Assets grew $1.3 billion compared with March 31, 2017 as growth in loans was substantially offset by lower deposits held with the Federal Reserve Bank. Assets grew 3 percent over June 30, 2016 driven by higher loans and investment securities partially offset by lower deposits with the Federal Reserve Bank.

Total loans grew $5.2 billion as of June 30, 2017 compared with March 31, 2017. Commercial lending balances increased $5.1 billion in PNC's corporate banking, real estate and business credit businesses as well as the equipment finance business, which included the acquisition of a commercial and vendor finance business with $1.0 billion of loans and leases. Consumer lending balances increased $.1 billion as growth in residential mortgage, auto and credit card loans was substantially offset by lower home equity and education loans. Average loans grew $4.1 billion over the first quarter from higher commercial lending balances of $4.4 billion partially offset by lower consumer lending balances of $.3 billion.  

Second quarter 2017 period end and average loans increased $9.0 billion and $8.1 billion, respectively, compared with second quarter 2016 as higher commercial, residential mortgage and commercial real estate loans were partially offset by a decrease in consumer loans driven by discontinued brokered home equity and government guaranteed education loans.

PNC maintained a strong capital position. Common shareholders' equity at June 30, 2017 increased $.3 billion compared with March 31, 2017 due to growth in retained earnings substantially offset by share repurchases. The transitional Basel III common equity Tier 1 capital ratios were calculated using the regulatory capital methodologies, including related phase-ins, applicable to PNC during 2017 and 2016 using the standardized approach. The pro forma ratios were also calculated based on the standardized approach. See Capital Ratios in the Consolidated Financial Highlights.

PNC completed common stock repurchase programs for the four quarter period ended in the second quarter of 2017 and returned a total of $3.4 billion of capital to shareholders through repurchases of 21.5 million common shares for $2.3 billion and dividends on common shares of $1.1 billion. PNC returned $1.0 billion of capital to shareholders in the second quarter of 2017 through repurchases of 5.7 million common shares for $.7 billion and dividends on common shares of $.3 billion.

In June 2017 PNC announced share repurchase programs of up to $2.7 billion for the four-quarter period beginning in the third quarter of 2017. These programs include repurchases of up to $.3 billion related to stock issuances under employee benefit plans.

On July 6, 2017, the PNC board of directors raised the quarterly cash dividend on common stock to 75 cents per share, an increase of 20 cents per share, or 36 percent, effective with the August 5, 2017 dividend payment. These capital actions are consistent with PNC's capital plan which was accepted by the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System in June 2017.

Overall credit quality for the second quarter of 2017 remained stable with the first quarter. Provision for credit losses for second quarter 2017 increased $10 million compared with the first quarter and included an initial provision for the loan and lease portfolio obtained through a business acquisition offset by a benefit from the performance of certain residential real estate loans and home equity lines of credit reaching draw period end dates.

Nonperforming assets at June 30, 2017 decreased $59 million compared with March 31, 2017 driven by lower consumer nonperforming loans partially offset by higher commercial nonperforming loans, and decreased $362 million compared with June 30, 2016 reflecting lower consumer and commercial nonperforming loans. Nonperforming assets to total assets were .58 percent at June 30, 2017 compared with .60 percent at March 31, 2017 and .70 percent at June 30, 2016.

Overall delinquencies as of June 30, 2017 declined $58 million, or 4 percent, compared with March 31, 2017 from lower accruing loans past due 90 days or more of $25 million and lower accruing loans past due 30 to 59 days of $25 million.

Net charge-offs for the second quarter of 2017 decreased $8 million compared with the first quarter, and declined $24 million compared with second quarter 2016 attributable to energy-related loans. Net charge-offs for the second quarter of 2017 were .20 percent of average loans on an annualized basis compared with .23 percent for the first quarter and .26 percent for the second quarter of 2016.

The allowance for loan and lease losses at June 30, 2017 was stable with March 31, 2017 and decreased $124 million compared with June 30, 2016. The allowance to total loans was 1.17 percent at June 30, 2017, 1.20 percent at March 31, 2017 and 1.28 percent at June 30, 2016. The allowance to nonperforming loans was 131 percent at June 30, 2017, 128 percent at March 31, 2017 and 119 percent at June 30, 2016.

Effective for the first quarter of 2017, as a result of changes to how PNC manages its businesses, it realigned its segments and, accordingly, has changed the basis of presentation of its segments, resulting in four reportable business segments: Retail Banking, Corporate & Institutional Banking, Asset Management Group and BlackRock. For purposes of this news release, BlackRock has been combined with Other. In addition, PNC made certain adjustments to its internal funds transfer pricing methodology primarily relating to weighted average lives of certain non-maturity deposits. These changes in methodology affected business segment results, primarily adversely impacting net interest income for Corporate & Institutional Banking and Retail Banking, offset by increased net interest income in Other. All 2016 periods presented were revised to conform to the new segment alignment and to reflect the change in internal funds transfer pricing methodology.

Retail Banking earnings for the second quarter of 2017 increased compared with the first quarter and decreased compared with the second quarter of 2016. Noninterest income grew over the first quarter primarily as a result of seasonally higher customer-initiated transactions, including debit card, credit card and merchant services. Noninterest income decreased compared with the second quarter of 2016 due to the impact of second quarter 2016 net gains on the sale of Visa Class B common shares, lower residential mortgage loan sales revenue and lower net hedging gains on residential mortgage servicing rights. Provision for credit losses decreased compared with the first quarter reflecting performance of certain consumer loan portfolios. Noninterest expense increased in both comparisons as a result of higher personnel expense, marketing activity and continued investments in technology.

  • Average loans increased 1 percent compared with the second quarter of 2016 as growth in residential mortgage, auto and credit card loans was partially offset by lower home equity and education loans.
  • Average deposits grew 1 percent over the first quarter and 4 percent over the second quarter of 2016 due to higher demand deposits as well as an increase in savings deposits which was partially offset by lower money market deposits reflecting a shift to relationship-based savings products.
  • Approximately 61 percent of second quarter 2017 residential mortgage loan origination volume was for home purchase transactions compared with 43 percent for the first quarter and 48 percent in second quarter of 2016.

Corporate & Institutional Banking earnings for the second quarter of 2017 increased compared with the first quarter of 2017 and the second quarter of 2016. Noninterest income increased in both comparisons primarily due to higher revenue from commercial mortgage loans held for sale activities, higher capital markets revenue including loan syndication fees, higher operating lease income related to the acquired business and increased treasury management fees. Provision for credit losses in the second quarter of 2017 increased in both comparisons as a result of an initial provision for the loan and lease portfolio obtained through the business acquisition and continued loan growth, as well as an increase in specific reserves compared with the first quarter. Noninterest expense increased in both comparisons due to operating expense related to the acquired business, variable costs associated with increased business activity and investments in technology and infrastructure.

  • Average loans increased 4 percent over the first quarter of 2017 and 7 percent over the second quarter of 2016 driven by growth in PNC's real estate, corporate banking and business credit businesses as well as the equipment finance business, which included the acquired business with $1.0 billion of loans and leases.
  • Average deposits declined slightly compared with the first quarter of 2017, and increased 3 percent compared with the second quarter of 2016 primarily driven by an increase in interest-bearing demand deposits partially offset by a decrease in money market deposits.
  • Net charge-offs were $21 million in the second quarter of 2017, $21 million in the first quarter and $60 million in the second quarter of 2016, which reflected energy-related loans.
  • PNC has formalized plans to expand its middle market business into the Denver, Houston and Nashville markets in 2018, following expansion to Dallas, Kansas City and Minneapolis in 2017.

Asset Management Group earnings for the second quarter of 2017 increased in both comparisons. Noninterest income was consistent with the first quarter and increased over the second quarter of 2016 reflecting higher average equity markets. Noninterest expense increased compared with the second quarter of 2016 due to higher personnel and technology-related expense. 

  • Asset Management Group's strategy is focused on growing investable assets by continually evolving the client experience and products and services. The business offers an open architecture platform with a full array of investment products and banking solutions. 
  • Client assets under administration at June 30, 2017 included discretionary client assets under management of $141 billion and nondiscretionary client assets under administration of $125 billion.
    • Discretionary client assets under management were stable with March 31, 2017 and increased $6 billion compared with June 30, 2016 primarily attributable to equity market increases.

(a)

Calculated as annualized taxable-equivalent net interest income divided by average earning assets. To provide more meaningful comparisons of

net interest margins, we use net interest income on a taxable-equivalent basis in calculating 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 June 30, 2017, March 31, 2017 and June 30, 2016 were $54 million, $52 million and $48 million, respectively. The taxable

equivalent adjustments to net interest income for the first six months of 2017 and 2016 were $106 million and $96 million, respectively.

(b)

Calculated as noninterest expense divided by total revenue. 

(c)

Effective for the first quarter of 2017, as a result of changes to how we manage our businesses, we realigned our segments and, accordingly, changed

the basis of presentation of our segments, resulting in four reportable business segments: Retail Banking, Corporate & Institutional Banking, Asset

Management Group and BlackRock.  For purposes of this presentation, we have combined BlackRock with Other. All 2016 prior periods presented were

revised to conform to the new segment alignment.

(d)

Our business information is presented based on our internal management reporting practices. Net interest income in business segment results reflects

PNC's internal funds transfer pricing methodology. Assets receive a funding charge and liabilities and capital receive a funding credit based on a transfer

pricing methodology that incorporates product repricing characteristics, tenor and other factors. We periodically refine our internal methodologies as

management reporting practices are enhanced. In the first quarter of 2017, we made certain adjustments to our internal funds transfer pricing methodology

primarily relating to weighted average lives of certain non-maturity deposits. These changes in methodology affected business segment results, primarily

adversely impacting net interest income for Corporate & Institutional Banking and Retail Banking, offset by increased net interest income in Other. All 2016

prior periods presented were revised to reflect our change in internal funds transfer pricing methodology.

(e)

Includes earnings and gains or losses related to PNC's equity interest in BlackRock and residual activities that do not meet the criteria for disclosure as a

separate reportable business. We provide additional information on these activities in our Form 10-K and Form 10-Q filings with the SEC.
