KeyCorp Reports First Quarter 2017 Net Income of $296 Million, or $.27 per Common Share; Earnings per Common Share of $.32, Excluding $.05 of Merger-Related Charges

KeyCorp (KEY) today announced first quarter net income from continuing operations attributable to Key common shareholders of $296 million, or $.27 per common share, compared to $213 million or $.20 per common share, for the fourth quarter of 2016, and $182 million, or $.22 per common share, for the first quarter of 2016. During the first quarter of 2017, Key incurred merger-related charges totaling $81 million, or $.05 per common share, compared to $198 million, or $.11 per common share, in the fourth quarter of 2016, and $24 million, or $.02 per common share, in the first quarter of 2016. Excluding merger-related charges, earnings per common share were $.32 for the first quarter of 2017, $.31 for the fourth quarter of 2016, and $.24 for the first quarter of 2016.

"Key’s strong first quarter results reflect continued business momentum and our success in realizing value from our First Niagara acquisition," said Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Beth Mooney. "We generated positive operating leverage compared to both the prior year and previous quarter. Revenue relative to the year-ago period benefited from higher net interest income, positive momentum in our fee-based businesses and the addition of over one million newly acquired consumer and business clients. We have been successfully growing and expanding client relationships in both our Community Bank and Corporate Bank, and we remain on a path to deliver revenue synergies from our acquisition."

"Expenses reflect our continued focus on managing costs throughout the Key franchise, as well as realizing the targeted savings from First Niagara," Mooney continued. "We remain on track to achieve our initial $400 million cost savings target by the end of the second quarter and expect to reach $450 million by early 2018. In the first quarter, our cash efficiency ratio, excluding merger-related charges, improved to 60.4%."

"Our capital position remains strong, and this quarter, we generated a return on average tangible common equity of 12.9%, excluding merger-related charges," Mooney added.

First quarter 2017 net interest income included $53 million of purchase accounting accretion related to the acquisition of First Niagara. This compares to $92 million of purchase accounting accretion in the fourth quarter of 2016, which included $34 million related to the refinement of third quarter 2016 purchase accounting estimates.

Taxable-equivalent net interest income was $929 million for the first quarter of 2017, and the net interest margin was 3.13%, compared to taxable-equivalent net interest income of $612 million and a net interest margin of 2.89% for the first quarter of 2016, reflecting the benefit from the First Niagara acquisition, including purchase accounting accretion, as well as higher earning asset yields and balances.

Compared to the fourth quarter of 2016, taxable-equivalent net interest income decreased by $19 million, and the net interest margin increased by one basis point. The decline in net interest income reflects a decline in purchase accounting accretion and two fewer days in the quarter, partly offset by higher earning asset yields. The net interest margin benefited from higher earning asset yields and lower levels of liquidity, offset by a decline in purchase accounting accretion.

Excluding purchase accounting accretion, taxable-equivalent net interest income increased $20 million from the fourth quarter of 2016 and $264 million from the first quarter of 2016.

Key’s noninterest income was $577 million for the first quarter of 2017, compared to $431 million for the year-ago quarter. The most notable increase was in investment banking and debt placement fees, which increased $56 million, related to improved capital markets conditions and activity from the year-ago period. Trust and investment services income, cards and payments income, and service charges on deposit accounts also contributed to the growth, largely related to the First Niagara acquisition.

Compared to the fourth quarter of 2016, noninterest income decreased by $41 million. The decrease was primarily attributable to lower investment banking and debt placement fees, as well as a decline in corporate-owned life insurance income, which is seasonally lower in the first quarter. Corporate services income also decreased $7 million related to lower loan and derivative trading income. An increase of $12 million in trust and investment services income related to higher insurance revenue and fixed income trading volume slightly offset these declines.

Key’s noninterest expense was $1.0 billion for the first quarter of 2017, which included $81 million of merger-related charges. The merger-related charges were primarily made up of $51 million of nonpersonnel expense, largely recognized in marketing, net occupancy, business services and professional fees, and other expense reflecting a $20 million philanthropic contribution related to First Niagara. The remaining $30 million was personnel expense, related to ongoing integration activities. In the fourth quarter of 2016, noninterest expense included $207 million of merger-related charges, while $24 million of merger-related charges were incurred in the first quarter of 2016.

Excluding merger-related charges, noninterest expense was $253 million higher than the first quarter of last year. The increase from the prior year, reflected in both personnel and nonpersonnel expense, was primarily driven by the acquisition of First Niagara. Higher incentive compensation related to stronger capital markets performance also contributed to the year-over-year increase.

Compared to the fourth quarter of 2016, noninterest expense, excluding merger-related charges, decreased by $81 million. The decrease primarily reflects cost savings related to the First Niagara acquisition, reflected in both personnel and nonpersonnel expense. Lower incentive and stock-based compensation and the absence of a pension settlement charge also contributed to the decline. These decreases were partially offset by seasonally higher employee benefits expenses.

(a) Commercial and industrial average loan balances include $114 million, $119 million, and $85 million of assets from commercial credit cards at March 31, 2017, December 31, 2016, and March 31, 2016, respectively.

Average loans were $86.1 billion for the first quarter of 2017, an increase of $26 billion compared to the first quarter of 2016, primarily reflecting the impact of the First Niagara acquisition and growth in commercial and industrial loans.

Compared to the fourth quarter of 2016, average loans increased by $773 million, driven by a $507 million increase in commercial and industrial loans, and a $416 million increase in commercial mortgage loans. The growth reflects overall business activity and lower payoffs in Key’s Commercial Real Estate line of business. Consumer loans decreased $292 million, mostly related to continued decline in the home equity loan portfolio, largely the result of paydowns on home equity lines of credit.

Average deposits totaled $102.1 billion for the first quarter of 2017, an increase of $30.5 billion compared to the year-ago quarter, primarily reflecting the acquisition of First Niagara and core deposit growth in Key’s retail banking franchise.

Compared to the fourth quarter of 2016, average deposits decreased by $2.6 billion, largely driven by a decline in escrow deposits and a targeted reduction in certain short-term commercial deposits. On a period-end basis, total deposits decreased $105 million compared to the linked-quarter, as core deposit growth in Key’s retail banking franchise largely offset the decline in escrow deposits.

As a "standardized approach" banking organization, Key’s mandatory compliance with the final Basel III capital framework for U.S. banking organizations (the "Regulatory Capital Rules") began on January 1, 2015, subject to transitional provisions extending to January 1, 2019. Key’s estimated Common Equity Tier 1 ratio as calculated under the fully phased-in Regulatory Capital Rules was 9.80% at March 31, 2017. This estimate exceeds the fully phased-in required minimum Common Equity Tier 1 and Capital Conservation Buffer of 7.00%.

-- Average deposits increased $26.6 billion, or 50.4%, from the prior year

Key Community Bank recorded net income attributable to Key of $147 million for the first quarter of 2017, compared to $74 million for the year-ago quarter, benefiting from momentum in Key’s core businesses, as well as the impact of the First Niagara acquisition.

Taxable-equivalent net interest income increased by $232 million, or 58.1%, from the first quarter of 2016. The increase was primarily attributable to the acquisition of First Niagara, as well as the benefit from the Federal Reserve rate increase. Average loans and leases increased $16.2 billion, or 52.8%, largely driven by a $5.1 billion, or 39.3%, increase in commercial and industrial loans. Additionally, average deposits increased $26.6 billion, or 50.4% from one year ago.

Noninterest income was up $81 million, or 41.3%, from the year-ago quarter, driven by the acquisition of First Niagara, including the addition of Key Insurance and Benefits Services. Strength in derivatives and higher assets under management balances from market growth also contributed to the increase.

The provision for credit losses increased by $5 million, or 11.9%, and net loan charge-offs increased $20 million, from the first quarter of 2016, primarily related to the acquisition of First Niagara.

Noninterest expense increased by $191 million, or 43.8%, from the year-ago quarter, largely driven by the acquisition of First Niagara, as well as core business activity and investments. Personnel expense increased $75 million, while non-personnel expense increased by $116 million, including higher intangible amortization expense and higher FDIC assessment expense.

Key Corporate Bank Summary of Operations (1Q17 vs. 1Q16)

-- Average loan and lease balances up $10 billion, or 36.1%, from the prior year

-- Revenue up $154 million, or 36.2%, from the prior year

-- Noninterest income up $68 million, or 32.9%, from the prior year

Key Corporate Bank recorded net income attributable to Key of $181 million for the first quarter of 2017, compared to $118 million for the same period one year ago.

Taxable-equivalent net interest income increased by $86 million, or 39.4%, compared to the first quarter of 2016. Average loan and lease balances increased $10 billion, or 36.1%, from the year-ago quarter, primarily driven by the First Niagara acquisition as well as growth in commercial and industrial loans. Average deposit balances increased $2.9 billion, or 16.2%, from the year-ago quarter, mostly driven by the First Niagara acquisition.

Noninterest income was up $68 million, or 32.9%, from the prior year. This growth was mostly due to $54 million of higher investment banking and debt placement fees related to improved capital markets conditions and activity from the year-ago period, as well as an increase of $8 million in operating lease income and other leasing gains related to higher originations. Additional increases of $7 million in cards and payments income and $4 million in mortgage servicing fees were partially offset by a $7 million decrease in other noninterest income.

The provision for credit losses decreased $26 million, or 60.5%, compared to the first quarter of 2016 due to $4 million of lower net loan charge-offs and improvement in the oil and gas portfolio.

Noninterest expense increased by $66 million, or 27.8%, from the first quarter of 2016. The increase from the prior year, reflected in both personnel and nonpersonnel expense, was largely driven by the acquisition of First Niagara, higher performance-based compensation and various other items, including operating lease and cards and payments expenses.

Other Segments

Other Segments consist of Corporate Treasury, Key’s Principal Investing unit, and various exit portfolios. Other Segments generated net income attributable to Key of $21 million for the first quarter of 2017, compared to $15 million for the same period last year, driven by increases in corporate-owned life insurance income, net gains on principal investing, and other income.

GAAP to Non-GAAP Reconciliations (dollars in millions)

The table below presents certain non-GAAP financial measures related to "tangible common equity," "return on average tangible common equity," "Common Equity Tier 1," "pre-provision net revenue," certain financial measures excluding merger-related charges, and "cash efficiency ratio."

The tangible common equity ratio and the return on average tangible common equity ratio have been a focus for some investors, and management believes these ratios may assist investors in analyzing Key’s capital position without regard to the effects of intangible assets and preferred stock. Traditionally, the banking regulators have assessed bank and bank holding company capital adequacy based on both the amount and the composition of capital, the calculation of which is prescribed in federal banking regulations. In October 2013, the federal banking regulators published the final Basel III capital framework for U.S. banking organizations (the "Regulatory Capital Rules"). The Regulatory Capital Rules require higher and better-quality capital and introduced a new capital measure, "Common Equity Tier 1," a non-GAAP financial measure. The mandatory compliance date for Key as a "standardized approach" banking organization began on January 1, 2015, subject to transitional provisions extending to January 1, 2019.

Common Equity Tier 1 is not formally defined by GAAP and is considered to be a non-GAAP financial measure. Since analysts and banking regulators may assess Key’s capital adequacy using tangible common equity and Common Equity Tier 1, management believes it is useful to enable investors to assess Key’s capital adequacy on these same bases. The table also reconciles the GAAP performance measures to the corresponding non-GAAP measures.

The table also shows the computation for pre-provision net revenue, which is not formally defined by GAAP. Management believes that eliminating the effects of the provision for credit losses makes it easier to analyze the results by presenting them on a more comparable basis.

As previously disclosed, Key completed its purchase of First Niagara on August 1, 2016. The definitive agreement and plan of merger to acquire First Niagara was originally announced on October 30, 2015. As a result of this transaction, Key has recognized merger-related charges. The table below shows the computation of noninterest expense excluding merger-related charges, earnings per common share excluding merger-related charges, return on average tangible common equity excluding merger-related charges, return on average assets from continuing operations excluding merger-related charges, cash efficiency ratio excluding merger-related charges, and pre-provision net revenue excluding merger-related charges. Management believes that eliminating the effects of the merger-related charges makes it easier to analyze the results by presenting them on a more comparable basis.

The cash efficiency ratio is a ratio of two non-GAAP performance measures. As such, there is no directly comparable GAAP performance measure. The cash efficiency ratio performance measure removes the impact of Key’s intangible asset amortization from the calculation. The table below also shows the computation for the cash efficiency ratio excluding merger-related charges. Management believes these ratios provide greater consistency and comparability between Key’s results and those of its peer banks. Additionally, these ratios are used by analysts and investors as they develop earnings forecasts and peer bank analysis.

Non-GAAP financial measures have inherent limitations, are not required to be uniformly applied, and are not audited. Although these non-GAAP financial measures are frequently used by investors to evaluate a company, they have limitations as analytical tools, and should not be considered in isolation, or as a substitute for analyses of results as reported under GAAP.
