EXECUTIVE OVERVIEW

Summary of 2014 Third Quarter Results

For the quarter, we reported net income of $155.0 million, or $0.18 per common share, compared with $178.8 million, or $0.20 per common share, in the year-ago quarter ( see Table 1 ).

Fully-taxable equivalent net interest income was $473.8 million for the quarter, up $42.4 million, or 10%, from the year-ago quarter. The results reflected a $7.5 billion, or 15%, increase in average earning assets, including a $4.1 billion, or 10%, increase in average loans and leases, as well as a $3.3 billion, or 38%, increase in average securities. The impact of these balance increases was partially offset by a 14 basis point decrease in net interest margin. The primary items affecting the net interest margin were a 20 basis point negative impact from the mix and yield of earning assets and a 3 basis point reduction in the benefit from the impact of noninterest-bearing funds, partially offset by a 9 basis point reduction in funding costs.

The provision for credit losses was $5.5 million less than total NCOs for the same period, reflecting continued credit quality improvement. Provision expense increased $13.1 million, or 115%, from the year-ago quarter. This reflected the implementation of enhancements to our ALLL model in the year-ago quarter. Consistent with our expectations, NCOs decreased $25.7 million, or 46%, to $30.0 million. The consumer loan portfolios drove the majority of the decline, continuing the positive trend exhibited over the past three quarters. NCOs were an annualized 0.26% of average loans and leases in the current quarter, compared to 0.53% in the year-ago quarter.

Noninterest income decreased $6.4 million, or 3%, from the year-ago quarter. The results included a $6.4 million, or 17%, decrease in other income, primarily related to commercial loan fees and a decline in income from early lease terminations. In addition, service charges on deposit accounts decreased $3.8 million, or 5%, reflecting the late July 2014 implementation of changes in consumer products that were partially offset by an 11% increase in consumer households and changing customer usage patterns. Capital markets fees decreased $2.6 million, or 20%, due to lower interest rate derivative sales. These declines were partially offset by a $3.1 million, or 62%, increase in gain on sale of loans related to strong SBA production and relatively higher premiums and $3.0 million, or 12%, increase in electronic banking due to higher card related income and underlying customer growth.

Noninterest expense in the current and year-ago quarter included several Significant Items, which are further described in the “Discussion of Results of Operations” section. Reported noninterest expense increased $57.0 million, or 13%, from the year-ago quarter. The results included a $46.1 million, or 20%, increase in personnel costs (excluding the impact of Significant Items, personnel costs increased $3.4 million, or 1%), a $4.8 million, or 14%, increase in other expense (excluding the impact of Significant Items, other expenses increased $3.7 million, or 11%, primarily reflecting higher OREO and loss expense), and a $3.8 million, or 8%, increase in outside data processing and other services as we continue to invest in technology supporting our products, services, and our Continuous Improvement initiatives.

The tangible common equity to tangible assets ratio was 8.35%, down 65 basis points from a year ago. Our Tier 1 common risk-based capital ratio was 10.31%, down 54 basis points from a year ago. The regulatory Tier 1 risk-based capital ratio was 11.61%, down 75 basis points from a year ago. All capital ratios were impacted by balance sheet growth and share repurchases that were partially offset by increased retained earnings and the stock issued in the Camco acquisition. The decrease in the regulatory Tier 1 risk-based capital ratio also reflected the redemption of $50 million of qualifying preferred securities on December 31, 2013.

Business Overview

General

Our general business objectives are: (1) grow net interest income and fee income, (2) increase cross-sell and share-of-wallet across all business segments, (3) improve efficiency ratio, (4) continue to strengthen risk management, including sustained improvement in credit metrics, and (5) maintain strong capital and liquidity positions.

We continued to deliver solid year-over-year revenue growth through the third quarter, while maintaining a disciplined balance sheet. Performance highlights include ongoing strength in commercial and auto lending. We are also pleased with deposit growth, which is in part supported by our improved distribution network, as evidenced by 50 in-store locations attaining break-even or better status during the 2014 third quarter, and also the successful conversion of 24 acquired Michigan branches, furthering our presence in markets in our service area. Furthermore, our decision during the 2014 third quarter to consolidate 26 branches by year-end demonstrates the ongoing optimization of our distribution channels.

Table of Contents

Among other key highlights, we also are pleased with our number one ranking in the country for total number of Small Business Administration 7(a) loans for the fiscal year that concluded in September 2014. We continue to prioritize SBA lending as an integral component of our overall business lending strategy and are gratified to attain a top national ranking, particularly since we only make SBA loans within our core six-state footprint.

Economy

Michigan, Ohio, and Indiana, which had the strongest manufacturing growth of our footprint states, also tended to have the strongest overall economic growth as exemplified by the Philadelphia FRB Economic Activity indexes. Housing activity and prices will likely continue on a moderate upward trend in line with long-term historical growth. Home purchase prices have been rising overall in our footprint states. Price gains were especially strong in the first half of 2014 in Michigan, Ohio, and Kentucky. In addition, industrial vacancy rates in our largest footprint Metropolitan Statistical Areas have been at or below the national average reflecting generally healthy industrial real estate markets.

Expectations – Fourth Quarter 2014

We continue to be pleased with our healthy lending pipeline and the strength of the economies within our footprint. We are looking forward to a solid finish for 2014, as we remain on track to deliver another year with positive operating leverage. We are not expecting a near-term improvement in the interest rate environment. However, we are committing to delivering positive operating leverage again in 2015 as we will continue to prudently manage expenses in alignment with our revenue growth outlook.

Net interest income is expected to increase slightly in the 2014 fourth quarter. We anticipate an increase in earning assets, as total loans moderately grow and investment securities increase modestly. However, those benefits to net interest income are expected to be partially offset by continued downward pressure on NIM.

Noninterest income, excluding the impact of any net MSR activity, is expected to remain near the current quarter’s level.

Noninterest expense, excluding Significant Items, is expected to remain near the 2014 third quarter adjusted level. The 2014 fourth quarter is expected to include approximately $10 million of Significant Items related to the already announced franchise repositioning activities. We will continue to look for ways to reduce expenses, while not impacting our previously announced growth strategies and our high level of customer service.

Overall, asset quality metrics are expected to remain near current levels, although moderate quarterly volatility also is expected, given the absolute low level of problem assets and credit costs. We anticipate NCOs will remain within or below our long-term normalized range of 35 to 55 basis points.

The effective tax rate for the remainder of 2014 is expected to be in the range of 25% to 28%, primarily reflecting the impacts of tax-exempt income, tax-advantaged investments, general business credits, and the change in accounting for investments in qualified affordable housing projects.

Significant Items

Definition of Significant Items

From time-to-time, revenue, expenses, or taxes are impacted by items judged by us to be outside of ordinary banking activities and / or by items that, while they may be associated with ordinary banking activities, are so unusually large that their outsized impact is believed by us at that time to be infrequent or short-term in nature. We refer to such items as Significant Items. Most often, these Significant Items result from factors originating outside the company; e.g., regulatory actions / assessments, windfall gains, changes in accounting principles, one-time tax assessments / refunds, litigation actions, etc. In other cases, they may result from our decisions associated with significant corporate actions outside of the ordinary course of business; e.g., merger / restructuring charges, recapitalization actions, goodwill impairment, etc.

Even though certain revenue and expense items are naturally subject to more volatility than others due to changes in market and economic environment conditions, as a general rule volatility alone does not define a Significant Item. For example, changes in the provision for credit losses, gains / losses from investment activities, asset valuation writedowns, etc., reflect ordinary banking activities and are, therefore, typically excluded from consideration as a Significant Item.

We believe the disclosure of Significant Items provides a better understanding of our performance and trends to ascertain which of such items, if any, to include or exclude from an analysis of our performance; i.e., within the context of determining how that performance differed from expectations, as well as how, if at all, to adjust estimates of future performance accordingly. To this end, we adopted a practice of listing Significant Items in our external disclosure documents; e.g., earnings press releases, investor presentations, Forms 10-Q and 10-K.

Significant Items for any particular period are not intended to be a complete list of items that may materially impact current or future period performance.

Significant Items Influencing Financial Performance Comparisons

Earnings comparisons were impacted by the Significant Items summarized below:

 

1. Franchise Repositioning Related Expense. Significant events relating to franchise repositioning related expense, and the impacts of those events on our reported results, were as follows:

 

   

During the 2014 third quarter, $19.3 million of franchise repositioning related expense was recorded for the consolidation of 26 branches and organizational actions. This resulted in a negative impact of $0.02 per common share.

 

   

During the 2013 third quarter, $16.6 million of franchise repositioning related expense was recorded. This resulted in a negative impact of $0.01 per common share.

 

2. Merger and Acquisition. Significant events relating to mergers and acquisitions, and the impacts of those events on our reported results, were as follows:

 

   

During the 2014 third quarter, $3.5 million of net noninterest expense was recorded related to the acquisition of 24 Bank of America branches and Camco Financial.

 

   

During the 2014 second quarter, $0.8 million of merger related costs were recorded related to the acquisition of Bank of America branches.

 

   

During the 2014 first quarter, $11.8 million of net noninterest expense was recorded related to the acquisition of Camco Financial. This resulted in a negative impact of $0.01 per common share.

 

3. Litigation Reserve. During the 2014 first quarter, $9.0 million of additions to litigation reserves were recorded as other noninterest expense. This resulted in a negative impact of $0.01 per common share.

 

4. Pension Curtailment Gain. During the 2013 third quarter, a $33.9 million pension curtailment gain was recorded in personnel costs. This resulted in a positive impact of $0.03 per common share.

2014 Third Quarter versus 2013 Third Quarter

Fully-taxable equivalent net interest income increased $42.4 million, or 10%, from the 2013 third quarter. This reflected the benefit from the $4.1 billion, or 10%, of average loan growth and a $3.3 billion, or 38%, increase in average securities. This was partially offset by the 14 basis point decrease in the FTE net interest margin to 3.20%. The NIM contraction reflected a 20 basis point decrease related to the mix and yield of earning assets and 3 basis point reduction in benefit from the impact of noninterest-bearing funds, partially offset by the 9 basis point reduction in funding costs.

Average earning assets increased $7.5 billion, or 15%, from the year-ago quarter, driven by:

 

   

$3.3 billion, or 38%, increase in average securities, reflecting $2.7 billion of Liquidity Coverage Ratio (LCR) Level 1 qualified securities and $1.2 billion of direct purchase municipal instruments, which in the year-ago quarter were classified as C&I loans.

 

   

$1.9 billion, or 32%, increase in average Automobile loans, as originations remained strong and we continued to portfolio all of the production.

 

   

$1.5 billion, or 9%, increase in average C&I loans and leases, reflecting growth in trade finance in support of our middle market and corporate customers, business banking, and automobile dealer floorplan lending.

 

   

$0.5 billion, or 9%, increase in average Residential mortgage loans as a result of a decrease in the rate of payoffs due to lower levels of refinancing and the Camco acquisition.

Average total core deposits increased $2.3 billion, or 5%, from the year-ago quarter, including a $1.0 billion, or 8%, increase in noninterest bearing deposits. Average interest-bearing liabilities increased $6.2 billion, or 17%, from the year-ago quarter, reflecting:

 

   

$4.1 billion, or 138%, increase in short- and long-term borrowings, which were used to efficiently finance balance sheet growth while continuing to manage the overall cost of funds. While no additional long-term debt was issued in the 2014 third quarter, this increase included $2.1 billion of bank-level debt and $0.4 billion of parent-level debt issued during the prior four quarters.

 

   

$2.2 billion, or 14%, increase in money market deposits, reflecting the strategic focus on customer growth and increased share-of-wallet among both consumer and commercial customers.

 

   

$0.7 billion, or 46%, increase in brokered deposits and negotiated CDs, which are a cost-effective method of funding incremental LCR-related securities growth.

Partially offset by:

 

   

$1.0 billion, or 24%, decrease in average core certificates of deposit due to the strategic focus on changing the funding sources to no-cost demand deposits and lower- cost money market deposits.

2014 Third Quarter versus 2014 Second Quarter

Compared to the 2014 second quarter, FTE net interest income increased $7.2 million, or 6% annualized. While the NIM decreased 8 basis points, earning assets increased $1.6 billion, or 11% annualized. During the 2014 second quarter, net interest income and the NIM benefitted by $5.1 million and 4 basis points, respectively, from the unexpected pay-off of an acquired commercial real estate loan.

2014 First Nine Months versus 2013 First Nine Months

Fully-taxable equivalent net interest income for the first nine-month period of 2014 increased $90.8 million, or 7% reflecting the benefit of a $5.8 billion, or 11%, increase in average total earning assets. The fully-taxable equivalent net interest margin decreased to 3.25% from 3.38%. The increase in average earning assets reflected:

 

   

$3.5 billion, or 8%, increase in average total loans and leases.

 

   

$2.6 billion, or 29%, increase in securities that meet the requirement for HQLA as proposed in the LCR rules issued by the regulators in October 2013.

Partially offset by:

 

   

$0.3 billion, or 48%, decrease in loans held for sale.

The $3.5 billion, or 8%, increase in average total loans and leases reflected:

 

   

$2.0 billion, or 37%, increase in the average automobile portfolio as originations remained strong and we continued to portfolio all of the production. Investments in our automobile lending business throughout the Northeast and upper Midwest continue to grow as planned.

 

   

$1.2 billion, or 7%, increase in the average C&I portfolio, primarily reflecting growth in the international and other specialty lending verticals, automobile dealer floorplan lending, and business banking.

The $2.2 billion, or 5%, increase in average total deposits reflected:

 

   

$2.5 billion, or 16%, increase in money market deposits, reflecting the strategic focus on customer growth and increased share-of-wallet among both consumer and commercial customers.

 

   

$0.9 billion, or 5%, increase in total demand deposits, reflecting our focus on changing our product mix to reduce the overall cost of deposits.

Partially offset by:

 

   

$1.4 billion, or 29%, decline in core certificates of deposit due to the strategic focus on changing the funding sources to no-cost demand deposits and lower cost money market deposits.

In addition, FHLB advances increased $1.3 billion, or 200%, along with an increase in short- and long-term borrowings of $1.9 billion, or 89%, which were used to efficiently finance balance sheet growth while continuing to manage the overall cost of funds. Included in the increase are $2.1 billion of bank-level debt and $0.4 billion of parent-level debt.

Provision for Credit Losses

(This section should be read in conjunction with the Credit Risk section.)

The provision for credit losses is the expense necessary to maintain the ALLL and the AULC at levels appropriate to absorb our estimate of credit losses in the loan and lease portfolio and the portfolio of unfunded loan commitments and letters-of-credit.

The provision for credit losses for the 2014 third quarter was $24.5 million and was $5.5 million less than total NCOs for the same period reflecting continued credit quality improvement. Provision expense increased $13.1 million, or 115%, compared to the year-ago quarter, reflecting the prior year’s implementation of enhancements to our allowance for loan and lease losses (ALLL) model and decreased $4.9 million, or 17%, from the prior quarter. On a year-to-date basis, provision for credit losses for the first nine-month period of 2014 increased $12.8 million, or 19%, compared to year-ago period. The provision for credit losses for the first nine-month period of 2014 was $23.2 million less than total NCOs. (See Credit Quality discussion). Given the low level of the provision for credit losses and the uncertain and uneven nature of the economic recovery, some degree of volatility on a quarter-to-quarter basis is expected.

2014 Third Quarter versus 2013 Third Quarter

Noninterest income decreased $6.4 million, or 3%, from the year-ago quarter, primarily reflecting:

 

   

$6.4 million, or 17%, decrease in other income, primarily related to commercial loan fees and early lease terminations.

 

   

$3.8 million, or 5%, decrease in service charges on deposit accounts, reflecting the late July 2014 implementation of changes in consumer products that were partially offset by an 11% increase in consumer households and changing customer usage patterns.

 

   

$2.6 million, or 20%, decrease in capital markets fees related to lower interest rate derivative sales.

Partially offset by:

 

   

$3.1 million, or 62%, increase in gain on sale of loans related to strong SBA production and relatively higher premiums.

 

   

$3.0 million, or 12%, increase in electronic banking due to higher card related income and underlying customer growth.

2014 Third Quarter versus 2014 Second Quarter

In the 2014 third quarter, noninterest income decreased $2.7 million, or 1%, from the 2014 second quarter, primarily reflecting:

 

   

$5.5 million, or 15%, decrease in other income, reflecting a mezzanine lending gain in the 2014 second quarter.

 

   

$3.5 million, or 5%, decrease in service charges on deposit accounts, reflecting a seasonal increase during the 2014 second quarter and the late July 2014 implementation of changes in consumer products.

Partially offset by:

 

   

$4.3 million, or 109%, increase in gain on sale of loans from SBA and other loan sales.

 

   

$2.3 million, or 10%, increase in mortgage banking income, reflecting a $1.3 million, or 9%, increase in origination and secondary marketing income and a positive net impact of MSR hedging.

$31.7 million, or 31%, decrease in mortgage banking income. This primarily reflected a $26.5 million, or 37%, decrease in origination and secondary marketing income as originations decreased 26%, gain-on-sale margin compressed, and the percentage of originations held on the balance sheet was higher.

 

   

$6.1 million, or 6%, decrease in other income, primarily due to a gain on the sale of LIHTC investments in the 2013 first quarter.

 

   

$5.1 million, or 6%, decrease in trust services, primarily related to the institutional trust business.

Partially offset by:

 

   

$18.5 million increase in securities gains, as we adjusted the mix of our securities portfolio to prepare for the LCR requirements.

 

   

$9.1 million, or 13%, increase in electronic banking income, primarily due to continued consumer household growth.

2014 Third Quarter versus 2013 Third Quarter

Reported noninterest expense increased $57.0 million, or 13%, from the year-ago quarter, reflecting:

 

   

$46.1 million, or 20%, increase in personnel costs. Excluding the impact of Significant Items, personnel costs increased $3.4 million, or 1%, related to annual compensation increases.

 

   

$4.8 million, or 14%, increase in other expense. Excluding the impact of Significant Items, other expenses increased $3.7 million, or 11%, primarily reflecting higher OREO and litigation expense.

 

   

$3.8 million, or 8%, increase in outside data processing and other services as we continue to invest in technology supporting our products, services, and our Continuous Improvement initiatives.

2014 Third Quarter versus 2014 Second Quarter

Noninterest expense increased $21.7 million, or 5%, from the 2014 second quarter. When adjusting for the $22.8 million of Significant Items in the 2014 third quarter, noninterest expense decreased $0.4 million. Personnel costs increased $14.8 million, or 6%, reflecting the franchise repositioning actions. Other expense increased $6.0 million, or 18%, reflecting higher OREO and litigation and settlement expense. Net occupancy expense increased $5.7 million, or 20%, primarily related to $5.2 million of franchise repositioning actions.
