BOSTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--State Street Corporation today announced fourth-quarter 2009 earnings per common share of $1.00 on revenue of $2.280 billion compared with $0.54 per share on revenue of $2.673 billion in the fourth quarter of 2008. Expenses in the fourth quarter of 2009 are $1.565 billion, compared with $2.311 billion in the fourth quarter of 2008. For the fourth quarter of 2009, return on common shareholders’ equity was 14.0%, up from 8.4% in the fourth quarter of 2008.

Compared to the third quarter of 2009, fourth-quarter 2009 results improved from $0.66 per share on revenue of $2.236 billion. Expenses in the third quarter of 2009 were $1.733 billion. For the third quarter of 2009, return on common shareholders’ equity was 10.2%.

The 2009 results included an after-tax extraordinary loss of $(3.684) billion or $(7.77) per share related to the effect of the May 2009 consolidation of the State Street-administered asset-backed commercial paper conduits onto the Company’s balance sheet. In 2009, State Street reported full-year earnings per share of $3.46, before the extraordinary loss, on revenue of $8.640 billion compared with earnings per share of $4.30 on revenue of $10.693 billion in 2008. Including the extraordinary loss, the full-year 2009 loss per share was $(4.31). Return on common shareholders’ equity was 13.2% in 2009 before the extraordinary loss, compared with 14.8% in 2008.

In addition to presenting State Street’s financial results in conformity with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP), management also presents results on an “operating basis” in order to highlight comparable financial trends and other characteristics with respect to State Street’s ongoing business operations from period to period. A full reconciliation of operating-basis results to GAAP results is included in the addendum at the end of this press release. Also see “Additional Information.” Net interest revenue on an operating basis for all periods is presented on a fully taxable-equivalent basis.

Operating-basis results for 2009 exclude a pre-tax provision of $(250) million or $(0.37) per share related to an increase in the reserve established in 2007 to address legal exposure related to losses incurred by investors in certain fixed-income strategies managed by State Street Global Advisors, $(106) million or $(0.22) per share related to repayment of the U.S. Treasury’s TARP Capital Purchase Program investment and $(49) million, or $(0.06) per share, of pre-tax merger and integration costs associated with the 2007 acquisition of Investors Financial Services Corp., which includes the fourth-quarter and third-quarter 2009 effects of $(9) million or $(0.01) per share and $(11) million or $(0.01) per share, respectively, for pre-tax merger and integration costs associated with that acquisition.

“Operating-basis” results for full-year 2008 exclude previously reported net pre-tax effects of $(751) million, or $(1.31) per share and for the fourth quarter of 2008 exclude previously reported net pre-tax effects of $(723) million, or $(1.04) per share. These items, including the related tax effects, are more fully described in the reconciliations of full-year and fourth-quarter 2008 operating-basis results in the addendum at the end of this press release.

The table below provides a summary of selected financial information and key ratios for the indicated periods, presented on an operating basis where noted. The tier 1 capital and tier 1 leverage ratios are capital ratios used regularly by bank regulatory authorities to evaluate the Company’s capital adequacy. The tier 1 common ratio was used by the Federal Reserve in connection with its Supervisory Capital Assessment Program. The TCE and TCE/risk-weighted assets ratios are other capital ratios management believes provide additional context for understanding and assessing the Company’s capital adequacy. Unless otherwise specified, all capital ratios referenced in this press release refer to State Street Corporation and not State Street Bank and Trust Company. See “Additional Information” for a further description of these ratios and the addendum at the end of this press release for reconciliations applicable to the TCE ratios.

Operating-basis earnings per common share in the fourth quarter of 2009 are $0.99 per share down 37.3% from $1.58 per share in the fourth quarter of 2008. Operating-basis revenue of $2.312 billion in the fourth quarter of 2009 is down 12.5% from $2.641 billion in the fourth quarter a year ago. Operating-basis expenses of $1.556 billion in the fourth quarter of 2009 are up 1.8% from $1.528 billion in the year-ago quarter. For the fourth quarter of 2009, operating-basis return on common shareholders’ equity is 13.8%, down from 24.3% for the fourth quarter of 2008.

Operating-basis results for the full-year 2009 include earnings per share of $4.11 on revenue of $8.759 billion compared with earnings per share of $5.61 on revenue of $10.477 billion in 2008. Operating basis expenses for the full-year 2009 are $5.667 billion compared with $6.780 billion in 2008.

Total assets are $158 billion at December 31, 2009, compared with $163 billion at September 30, 2009 and $174 billion at December 31, 2008. Excluding $22 billion in excess deposits held at the Federal Reserve and other central banks at December 31, 2009, $22 billion at September 30, 2009, and $52 billion at December 31, 2008, the normalized balance sheet was $136 billion at December 31, 2009, compared to a normalized balance sheet of $141 billion at September 30, 2009 and $122 billion as of December 31, 2008. State Street’s regulatory capital ratios continue to be strong as of December 31, 2009, with the Company’s tier 1 capital ratio at 17.5% and leverage ratio at 8.5%. In addition, the Company’s tier 1 common ratio is 15.3%, its TCE to risk-weighted assets ratio is 12.6%, and its TCE ratio is 6.6%, well ahead of the projected TCE ratio of 4.91% the Company targeted in February 2009 at its Investor and Analyst Forum, which had been adjusted for consolidation of the asset-backed commercial paper conduits. This performance is due to organic capital generation, the successful equity raise in May, and the improvement in unrealized losses in the investment portfolio.

At December 31, 2009, the after-tax, unrealized mark-to-market losses in the investment portfolio are $2.29 billion, down from $2.98 billion at September 30, 2009, and down about 65% from $6.32 billion as of December 31, 2008.

Ronald E. Logue, State Street's chairman and chief executive officer, said, "In 2009 we focused on strengthening our capital, servicing our clients, and controlling expenses. For the full year, we added $1.13 trillion in assets to be serviced as well as $248 billion in net new business in asset management. Also, on an operating basis, we achieved full-year positive operating leverage compared to 2008. In particular, investment manager operations outsourcing, alternative investment servicing, as well as passive management and ETF strategies generated new business and, based on the current pipeline, that trend is continuing. Our core business momentum also continues; on a quarter-over-quarter basis, we grew our servicing fee and management fee revenue, and in the fourth quarter we announced two proposed cash acquisitions, that of the securities services business of Intesa Sanpaolo, a premier provider of investment services in Italy and Luxembourg and that of Mourant International Finance Administration, a leading servicer of alternative investment servicing.”

Joseph L. Hooley, president and chief operating officer added, “Given the past year’s quarterly momentum in servicing fee and management fee revenue, we are increasingly confident in our ability to grow revenue during 2010. However, we continue to face headwinds from the impact of market-driven revenue and expect the transition in market-driven revenue that began in 2009 to continue into 2010. Including discount accretion associated with the former conduit assets, we expect operating-basis earnings per share in 2010 to be modestly below the lower end of our 10 to 15 percent range. However, to create more transparency and to underscore our confidence in our core businesses, going forward, we will report our operating-basis financial results excluding both merger and integration costs as well as the impact of conduit discount accretion. On this basis, 2009 operating-basis revenue would have been $8.138 billion and operating-basis earnings per share would have been $3.32. We expect our 2010 operating-basis earnings per share, excluding merger and integration costs and conduit discount accretion, to be only slightly above the level of 2009, reflecting in part increased outstanding average shares.”

Hooley concluded, “We begin 2010 from a position of strength. We believe we are well positioned globally and that, over economic and market cycles, we will maintain our long-term financial goals of operating-basis revenue growth of 8 percent to 12 percent, growth in operating-basis earnings per share of 10 percent to 15 percent, and operating-basis return on equity of between 14 percent and 17 percent.”

In 2009, discount accretion of $621 million, or $0.79 per share, contributed to State Street’s capital strength, and the Company expects about $900 million, or $1.08 per share, in 2010, and expects about $5.3 billion in total on a pre-tax basis to accrete into revenue over the life of the assets, based on anticipated pre-payment speeds, credit quality and assuming the company holds the securities to maturity.

FOURTH-QUARTER 2009 RESULTS VS. YEAR-AGO FOURTH QUARTER

Servicing fees are up 5% to $882 million from $842 million in last year’s fourth quarter. The increase is attributable primarily to the increase in daily average equity valuations and new business. Total assets under custody and administration are $18.795 trillion at December 31, 2009, up 18%, compared with $15.907 trillion at December 31, 2008. Daily average values for the S&P 500 Index are up 19% and the MSCI® EAFE IndexSM increased approximately 28% from the fourth quarter of 2008.

Investment management fees, generated by State Street Global Advisors, are $231 million, up 11% from $209 million in the year-ago quarter. The increase in management fees is attributable primarily to the increase in average month-end equity valuations, as well as net new business, with the increase in assets partly offset by a change in asset mix. Average month-end equity valuations are up about 17% as measured by the S & P 500 and are up 28% as measured by the MSCI EAFE indexSM. Total assets under management at December 31, 2009, are $1.911 trillion, up 32% compared to $1.444 trillion at December 31, 2008.

Trading services revenue, which includes foreign exchange trading revenue and brokerage and other fees, is $270 million for the fourth quarter of 2009, down 35% from $418 million in the fourth quarter a year-ago. The 57% decrease in foreign exchange revenue is primarily due to lower volatility and lower volumes. Brokerage and other fees increased 47% due primarily to strength in transition management and increases in electronic trading.

Securities finance revenue is $83 million in the quarter, down 75% from $329 million in the year-ago fourth quarter due primarily to compressed spreads as well as lower volumes.

Processing fees and other is $60 million, down 28% from $83 million in the fourth quarter of 2008 due to several factors, none of which is material.

Net interest revenue on an operating basis is $729 million, a decrease of 10% from $811 million in the year-ago fourth quarter due primarily to the impact of the continuing low interest-rate environment, and the decline in customer balances from the abnormally high levels in the fourth quarter of 2008, offset partially by the impact of discount accretion from the consolidated conduit assets. Net interest margin of 235 basis points in the fourth quarter was up slightly from the fourth quarter of 2008; excluding discount accretion, the net interest margin would have been 161 basis points. The net interest margin for the full year is 220 basis points including discount accretion and would have been 169 basis points excluding discount accretion.

In the quarter, due to the improving markets, we recorded $108 million of net gains from sales of securities, partially offset by $51 million of other-than-temporary impairment related to credit, resulting in $57 million of net gains related to investment securities. In addition, we recorded a $35 million provision for loan losses, primarily related to commercial real estate exposures.

Operating-basis expenses in the fourth quarter of 2009 increased to $1.556 billion, up 1.8% from $1.528 billion in the year-ago quarter, primarily as a result of a 13% increase in salaries and benefits. In the fourth quarter of 2008, we reversed approximately 50% of previously accrued full-year incentive compensation, resulting in a low level of salaries and benefits expense for the quarter. Transaction processing expense of $158 million increased 9% attributable to higher volumes in the investment servicing business, offset partially by a 7% reduction in occupancy expense, from $124 million to $115 million. Other expenses declined 17%, from $398 million to $329 million partially due to a lower level of governmental fees paid in 2009 compared to 2008.

The effective tax rate on operating-basis earnings for the fourth quarter of 2009 is 28.5%, down from 35.3% on the same basis for the fourth quarter of 2008. The decrease in the rate is the result of an increase in the proportion of earnings from non-U.S. subsidiaries where the intention is to reinvest the earnings indefinitely overseas, as well as to certain adjustments in prior year tax accruals. The effective tax rate on operating-basis earnings for the full year 2010 is expected to be approximately 30%.

FOURTH-QUARTER 2009 RESULTS VS. THIRD QUARTER 2009

The following information is presented on an operating basis. Earnings per common share in the fourth quarter of 2009 are $0.99, a decrease of 5.7% compared with $1.05 in the third quarter of 2009. Total revenue in the fourth quarter of $2.312 billion, is up 2.0% from $2.267 billion in the third quarter of 2009. Total expenses for the fourth quarter of 2009 are $1.556, up 5.7% from $1.472 billion in the third quarter of 2009. Return on common shareholders’ equity of 13.8% in the fourth quarter compares with 16.2% in the third quarter.

The table below provides the components of operating-basis revenue:

Operating-Basis Revenue       Increase/(Decrease)
(Dollars in millions) Q4 2009 Q3 2009 $   %
Servicing fees $ 882 $ 833 $ 49 5.9 %
Investment management fees 231 219 12 5.5
Trading services revenue 270 269 1 0.4
Securities finance revenue 83 105 (22 ) (21.0 )
Processing fees and other revenue 60 45 15 33.3
Net interest revenue, fully-taxable equivalent basis(1) 729 754 (25 ) (3.3 )
Gains related to investment securities, net   57     42     15   35.7
Total Operating-Basis Revenue $ 2,312   $ 2,267   $ 45   2.0 %

(1) The fourth quarter of 2009 and the third quarter of 2009 include $32 million and $31 million tax-equivalent adjustments, which increased GAAP-basis net interest revenue of $697 million and $723 million, respectively, for the periods.

Servicing fees are $882 million, up 6% from $833 million in the third quarter due primarily to new business as well as the increase in daily average equity valuations. Management fees are $231 million up 5% from $219 million primarily due to the increase in the average month-end equity valuations, and net new business. Trading services revenue is $270 million, compared to $269 million. Securities finance revenue is $83 million, down 21% from $105 million in the prior quarter primarily due to compressed spreads, partially offset by slightly increased volumes. Processing fees and other revenue increased from $45 million to $60 million. Net interest revenue on a fully taxable-equivalent basis is $729 million, down 3% from $754 million due to a lower level of discount accretion ($230 million versus $279 million) caused by the absence of one-time pay-downs and slower prepayment rates, offset partially by the impact of the investment strategy which we began to execute in the third quarter.

The table below provides the components of operating-basis expenses:

Operating-Basis Expenses       Increase/(Decrease)
(Dollars in millions) Q4 2009 Q3 2009 $   %
Salaries and employee benefits $ 791 $ 819 $ (28 ) (3.4 )
Information systems and communications 163 165 (2 ) (1.2 )
Transaction processing services 158 148 10 6.8
Occupancy 115 118 (3 ) (2.5 )
Other   329     222     107   48.2
Total Operating-Basis Expenses $ 1,556   $ 1,472   $ 84   5.7 %

Compared to the third quarter of 2009, salaries and employee benefits expense decreased 3% to $791 million from $819 million primarily due to a $50 million decrease in discretionary cash incentive compensation accruals recorded in the fourth quarter. Transaction processing expenses increased 7% due to higher volumes in the investment servicing business and other expenses increased 48% to $329 million due primarily to an adverse judgment of $60 million rendered by a Netherlands court in connection with SSgA’s appointment of Lehman Brothers as prime broker for certain investment funds, and other securities processing costs. All other lines were approximately flat on a quarter-to-quarter basis.

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION

All per share amounts represent fully diluted earnings per common share. Return on common shareholders’ equity is determined by dividing annualized net income available to common shareholders by average common shareholders’ equity for the period. Positive operating leverage is defined as the excess rate of growth of total revenue over the rate of growth of total expenses, each determined on an operating basis.

This press release includes financial information presented on a GAAP basis as well as on an operating basis. Management measures and compares certain financial information on an operating basis, as it believes that this presentation supports meaningful comparisons from period to period and the analysis of comparable financial trends with respect to State Street’s normal ongoing business operations. Management believes that operating-basis financial information, which reports revenue from non-taxable sources on a fully taxable-equivalent basis and excludes the impact of revenue and expenses outside of the normal course of business, facilitates an investor’s understanding and analysis of State Street’s underlying financial performance and trends in addition to financial information prepared in accordance with GAAP. Non-GAAP financial measures should be considered in addition to, not as a substitute for or superior to, financial measures determined in accordance with GAAP. A full reconciliation of operating-basis results to GAAP results is included in the addendum at the end of this press release.

Management believes that the use of other non-GAAP financial measures in the calculation of identified capital ratios is useful to understanding State Street’s capital position and of interest to investors. Below is a description of, and other information with respect to, the capital ratios referenced in this press release.

  • The tier 1 risk-based capital, or tier 1 capital, and tier 1 leverage ratios, as applicable, are each calculated in accordance with applicable bank regulatory requirements and, as permitted, exclude the impact of commercial paper purchased under the Federal Reserve Bank of Boston’s AMLF.
  • The tier 1 risk-based common, or tier 1 common, ratio is calculated by dividing (a) tier 1 capital less non-common elements including qualifying perpetual preferred stock, qualifying minority interest in subsidiaries and qualifying trust preferred securities, by (b) risk-weighted assets, which assets are calculated in accordance with applicable bank regulatory requirements. The tier 1 common ratio is not required by GAAP or on a recurring basis by bank regulations. However, this ratio was used by the Federal Reserve in connection with its stress test administered to the 19 largest U.S. bank holding companies under the Supervisory Capital Assessment Program, the results of which were announced on May 7, 2009. Although we understand that the Federal Reserve does not intend to prospectively require calculation of the tier 1 common ratio, due to the recent timing of the Supervisory Capital Assessment Program, management is currently monitoring this ratio, along with the other capital ratios described in this press release, in evaluating State Street’s capital levels and believes that, at this time, the ratio may be of interest to investors.

Reconciliations with respect to unaudited tier 1 common capital as of December 31, 2009, September 30, 2009 and December 31, 2008 are provided in the addendum at the end of this press release.

  • The ratio of tangible common equity to adjusted tangible assets, or TCE ratio, is calculated by dividing consolidated total common shareholders’ equity by consolidated total assets, after reducing both amounts by goodwill and other intangible assets net of related deferred taxes. Total assets reflected in the TCE ratio also exclude commercial paper purchased under the AMLF and cash balances on deposit at the Federal Reserve Bank and other central banks in excess of required reserves. The TCE ratio is not required by GAAP or by bank regulations, but is a metric used by management to evaluate the adequacy of State Street’s capital levels. Since there is no authoritative requirement to calculate the TCE ratio, our TCE ratio is not necessarily comparable to similar capital measures disclosed or used by other companies in the financial services industry. Tangible common equity and adjusted tangible assets are non-GAAP financial measures and should be considered in addition to, not as a substitute for or superior to, financial measures determined in accordance with GAAP. Reconciliations with respect to the calculation of the unaudited TCE ratio as of December 31, 2009, September 30, 2009, and December 31, 2008 are provided in the addendum at the end of this press release.
  • The ratio of tangible common equity to risk-weighted assets, or TCE/RWA ratio, is calculated by dividing total consolidated common shareholders’ equity (reduced by goodwill and other intangible assets net of related deferred taxes) by total risk-weighted assets (determined in accordance with applicable bank regulatory requirements). As permitted by bank regulations, total risk-weighted assets exclude commercial paper purchased under the AMLF. The TCE/RWA ratio is not required by GAAP or by bank regulations, but is a metric used by management to evaluate the adequacy of State Street’s capital levels. Since there is no authoritative requirement to calculate the TCE/RWA ratio, our TCE/RWA ratio is not necessarily comparable to similar capital measures disclosed or used by other companies in the financial services industry. Tangible common equity is a non-GAAP financial measure and should be considered in addition to, not as a substitute for or superior to, financial measures determined in accordance with GAAP. Reconciliations with respect to the calculation of the unaudited TCE/RWA ratio as of December 31, 2009, September 30, 2009, and December 31, 2008 are included in the addendum at the end of this press release.
