Consistent with SEC guidance in Regulation S-K that contemplates the calculation of tax-exempt income on a taxable-equivalent basis, net interest income, net interest margin, net interest rate spread, total revenue and the efficiency ratio are provided on an FTE basis.

CEO Commentary

Fifth Third continued to produce solid financial results in a volatile first quarter of 2022 while fully supporting customers, communities, and employees. We continue to navigate the economic environment with a disciplined approach focused on long-term through-the-cycle outperformance, and remain extremely well positioned to benefit from higher short-term interest rates. We generated strong loan growth during the quarter, including average C&I growth of 8% excluding PPP. Also excluding PPP, net interest income increased 1% sequentially, reflecting the partial impact of our decision to begin growing the securities portfolio.

We had yet another quarter of benign credit quality reflecting our disciplined approach to client selection and underwriting, which resulted in near-record low charge-offs of just 12 basis points. Additionally, commercial criticized assets continued to improve.

Last week, I announced my plans to retire as CEO and transition to Executive Chairman, effective July 5, 2022. As part of our thorough succession planning process, I am excited and proud to announce the Board of Directors has appointed Tim Spence to succeed me as our next CEO. I believe this is the right time for a transition, given Fifth Third’s tremendous financial health and performance. Being the CEO of Fifth Third has been an honor of a lifetime. I am grateful for the hard work, dedication, and support of all our employees over the years. I am also grateful for the confidence the Board and shareholders have had in me throughout my tenure.

Tim is an outstanding and visionary leader. He has been an integral part of Fifth Third's leadership team since 2015, helping develop the strategies and vision that we continue to execute with excellence through innovation and technology. I have no doubt that Tim’s focus on operational discipline will extend our track record for delivering on our commitments to continue generating sustainable, top quartile results among regional banks.

-Greg D. Carmichael, Chairman and CEO

Compared to the prior quarter, NII was stable, as the impacts of lower day count, lower PPP-related income, and a decline in residential mortgage balances (primarily from previous purchases of government guaranteed loan buyouts from a third party) were partially offset by higher commercial & industrial (C&I) loan balances, higher investment portfolio balances, and the impact of higher market rates. PPP-related income was $20 million in the current quarter compared to $36 million in the prior quarter. Excluding the impact of PPP-related income, NII increased $14 million, or 1%, sequentially. Compared to the prior quarter, reported NIM increased 4 bps, primarily due to a decrease in other short-term investments (primarily interest-bearing cash), the impact of lower day count, and higher market rates.

Compared to the year-ago quarter, NII increased $19 million, or 2%, primarily reflecting higher C&I and indirect secured consumer loan balances, higher investment portfolio balances, and a reduction in long-term debt, partially offset by lower PPP-related income and lower home equity balances. Excluding the impact of PPP-related income, NII increased $52 million, or 5%, year-over-year. Compared to the year-ago quarter, reported NIM decreased 3 bps, primarily reflecting loan spread compression, partially offset by lower other short-term investments (primarily interest-bearing cash) and lower long-term debt and deposit costs.

Reported noninterest income decreased $107 million, or 14%, from the prior quarter, and decreased $65 million, or 9%, from the year-ago quarter. The reported results reflect the impact of certain items in the table below. Reported current quarter results included $14 million of net securities losses, which comprised of $14 million in net losses attributable to mark-to-market impacts related to non-qualified deferred compensation assets and a $12 million loss attributable to market value changes on Fifth Third's shares of AvidXchange Holdings, Inc., partially offset by $12 million in net gains related to investment portfolio activity.

Compared to the prior quarter, noninterest income excluding certain items decreased $120 million, or 14%. Compared to the year-ago quarter, noninterest income excluding certain items decreased $50 million, or 7%.

Compared to the prior quarter, service charges on deposits decreased $4 million, or 3%, primarily reflecting a decrease in consumer deposit fees. Commercial banking revenue decreased $36 million, or 21%, primarily driven by lower M&A advisory revenue and loan syndication revenue, partially offset by higher customer financial risk management revenue. Mortgage banking net revenue increased $17 million, or 49%, reflecting a $14 million increase from MSR net valuation adjustments and an $11 million decrease in MSR asset decay reflecting slower prepayment speeds, partially offset by a $12 million decrease in origination fees and gains on loan sales. Wealth and asset management revenue decreased $1 million, or 1%, as the impact of lower market values was mostly offset by seasonally strong tax-related private client service revenue combined with continued asset inflows. Card and processing revenue decreased $7 million, or 7%, primarily driven by seasonally lower spend volume. Leasing business revenue decreased $12 million, or 16%, primarily driven by a decrease in lease remarketing revenue. The decline in other noninterest income was primarily attributable to the prior quarter recognition of tax receivable agreement revenue as well as lower private equity income.

Compared to the year-ago quarter, service charges on deposits increased $8 million, or 6%, reflecting an increase in commercial treasury management fees. Commercial banking revenue decreased $18 million, or 12%, primarily driven by decreases in corporate bond fees, partially offset by an increase in customer financial risk management revenue. Mortgage banking net revenue decreased $33 million, or 39%, reflecting a $64 million decrease in origination fees and gains on loan sales and a $9 million reduction from MSR net valuation adjustments, partially offset by a $28 million decrease in MSR asset decay reflecting slower prepayment speeds. Wealth and asset management revenue increased $6 million, or 4%, primarily driven by higher personal asset management revenue. Card and processing revenue increased $3 million, or 3%, primarily driven by higher spend volumes, partially offset by higher rewards. Leasing business revenue decreased $25 million, or 29%, primarily reflecting a decrease in lease syndication revenue.

Compared to the prior quarter, noninterest expense excluding certain items increased $26 million, or 2%, primarily reflecting a seasonal increase in compensation and benefits expense and a $21 million impact from the previously communicated special broad-based compensation bonus, partially offset by a decrease in incentive compensation and marketing expense. Noninterest expense in the current quarter included a $12 million benefit related to the impact of non-qualified deferred compensation mark-to-market (compared to $10 million expense in the prior quarter).

Compared to the year-ago quarter, noninterest expense increased $7 million, or 1%, reflecting an increase in technology and communications expense related to continued modernization investments, and an increase in compensation and benefits expense. These items were partially offset by lower card and processing expense due to contract renegotiations.

Average demand deposits represented 38% of total core deposits in the current quarter, relatively stable with the prior quarter. Average commercial transaction deposits decreased 2% and average consumer transaction deposits increased 4%.

Compared to the year-ago quarter, average core deposits increased 7%, reflecting ongoing success in generating consumer household growth. Average commercial transaction deposits increased 5% and average consumer transaction deposits increased 11%.

The period end portfolio loan-to-core deposit ratio was 68% in the current quarter, compared to 66% in the prior quarter and 68% in the year-ago quarter.
