MANAGEMENT’S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS OF FINANCIAL

CONDITION AND RESULTS OF OPERATIONS

SECOND QUARTER CONSOLIDATED RESULTS OF OPERATIONS

General

Northern Trust Corporation (the Corporation), together with its subsidiaries, is a leading provider of asset servicing, fund administration, asset management, fiduciary and banking solutions for corporations, institutions, families, and individuals worldwide. Northern Trust focuses on servicing and managing client assets through its two primary business units, Personal Financial Services (PFS) and Corporate & Institutional Services (C&IS). Asset management and related services are provided to PFS and C&IS clients primarily by a third business unit, Northern Trust Global Investments (NTGI). Northern Trust emphasizes quality through a high level of service complemented by the effective use of technology, delivered by a fourth business unit, Operations & Technology (O&T). Except where the context otherwise requires, the term “Northern Trust” refers to Northern Trust Corporation and its subsidiaries on a consolidated basis.

The following should be read in conjunction with the consolidated financial statements and related footnotes included in this report. Investors should also read the section entitled “Factors Affecting Future Results.”

Overview

Net income per common share in the second quarter of 2013 was $0.78 compared to $0.73 per common share in the second quarter of 2012. Net income for the current quarter was $191.1 million compared to $179.6 million in the prior year quarter.

The performance in the current quarter produced an annualized return on average common equity of 10.0% as compared to 9.9% in the prior year quarter. The annualized return on average assets was 0.8% in both the current quarter and the prior year quarter.

Consolidated revenue of $1.02 billion in the current quarter was up $32.0 million, or 3%, from $988.5 million in the prior year quarter. Noninterest income, which represented 78% of revenue, increased $66.0 million, or 9%, to $800.4 million from the prior year quarter’s $734.4 million, primarily reflecting higher trust, investment and other servicing fees and increased foreign exchange trading income.

Net interest income for the quarter on a fully taxable equivalent (FTE) basis decreased $36.3 million, or 14%, to $228.0 million as compared to $264.3 million in the prior year quarter, primarily reflecting a continued decline in the net interest margin.

Noninterest expense totaled $729.7 million in the current quarter, up $12.4 million, or 2%, from $717.3 million in the prior year quarter.

Trust, investment and other servicing fees are based generally on the market value of assets held in custody, managed and serviced; the volume of transactions; securities lending volume and spreads; and fees for other services rendered. Certain market value fee calculations are performed on a monthly or quarterly basis and can be based on the beginning, ending or daily average value of the client portfolio. Certain investment management fee arrangements also may provide for performance fees based on client portfolio returns that exceed predetermined levels.

The following tables present Northern Trust’s assets under custody and assets under management by business segment.

Custody and fund administration fees, the largest component of C&IS fees, increased 9%, primarily reflecting favorable equity markets and new business. C&IS investment management fees increased 3%, reflecting the favorable impact of markets and new business, partially offset by higher waived fees in money market mutual funds. Money market mutual fund fee waivers in C&IS, attributable to persistent low short-term interest rates, totaled $9.8 million in the current quarter, compared to waived fees of $7.0 million in the prior year quarter. Securities lending revenue increased slightly, reflecting higher loan volumes, partially offset by lower spreads in the current quarter.

Trust, investment and other servicing fees in PFS totaled $293.1 million in the current quarter, increasing $25.7 million, or 10%, from $267.4 million in the prior year quarter. The increased fees in the current quarter are primarily attributable to the favorable impact of equity markets and new business, partially offset by higher waived fees in money market mutual funds. Money market mutual fund fee waivers in PFS totaled $12.9 million in the current quarter compared with $10.0 million in the prior year quarter.

Foreign exchange trading income totaled $71.3 million, up $11.9 million, or 20%, compared with $59.4 million in the prior year quarter. The current quarter increase is attributable to higher currency market volatility and higher trading volumes compared to the prior year quarter.

Net Interest Income

Net interest income for the quarter on an FTE basis totaled $228.0 million, down $36.3 million, or 14%, from $264.3 million in the prior year quarter. The decrease reflects a continued decline in the net interest margin to 1.10% from 1.28% in the prior year quarter. The current quarter decline in the net interest margin primarily reflects lower yields on earning assets, partially offset by a lower cost of interest-related funds due to lower short-term interest rates. Average earning assets for the quarter were $83.1 billion, relatively unchanged from $83.2 billion in the prior year quarter. Net interest income is defined as the total of interest income and amortized fees on earning assets, less interest expense on deposits and borrowed funds, adjusted for the impact of interest-related hedging activity. Net interest income stated on an FTE basis is a non-generally accepted accounting principle (GAAP) financial measure that facilitates the analysis of asset yields. When adjusted to an FTE basis, yields on taxable, nontaxable, and partially taxable assets are comparable; however, the adjustment to an FTE basis has no impact on net income. A reconciliation of net interest income on a GAAP basis to net interest income on an FTE basis is provided on page 21.

Federal Reserve deposits and other interest-bearing assets averaged $5.3 billion in the current quarter as compared to $3.6 billion in the prior year quarter, an increase of $1.7 billion, or 45%.

Average securities, inclusive of Federal Reserve and Federal Home Loan Bank stock and certain community development investments, which are classified in other assets in the consolidated balance sheet, were $30.7 billion, down $716.1 million, or 2%, from $31.5 billion in the prior year quarter.

Loans and leases averaged $28.6 billion in the current quarter, down $455.7 million, or 2%, from $29.1 billion in the prior year quarter. Commercial and institutional loans averaged $7.5 billion in the current quarter, up $186.7 million, or 3%, from the prior year quarter’s average of $7.3 billion. Residential real estate loans averaged $10.2 billion in the current quarter, down $379.1 million, or 4%, from the prior year quarter’s average of $10.6 billion.

Net Interest Income (continued)

 

Northern Trust utilizes a diverse mix of funding sources. Total interest-bearing deposits averaged $55.9 billion in the current quarter, compared to $53.6 billion in the prior year quarter, an increase of $2.3 billion, or 4%. Other interest-bearing funds averaged $8.5 billion in the current quarter, an increase of $295.4 million, or 4%, from $8.2 billion in the prior year quarter, primarily attributable to an increase in short-term borrowings and senior notes, partially offset by lower levels of long-term debt. The balances within short-term borrowing classifications vary based on funding requirements and strategies, interest rate levels, changes in the volume of lower-cost deposit sources, and the availability of collateral to secure these borrowings.

Average net noninterest-related funds utilized to fund earning assets decreased $2.6 billion, or 12%, to $18.7 billion from $21.3 billion in the prior year quarter, resulting primarily from lower levels of demand and other noninterest-bearing deposits.

For additional quantitative analysis of average balances and interest rate changes affecting net interest income, refer to the Average Consolidated Balance Sheet with Analysis of Net Interest Income and the Analysis of Net Interest Income Changes Due To Volume and Rate on pages 22 and 23.

Provision for Credit Losses

The provision for credit losses was $5.0 million in both the current quarter and prior year quarter. Net charge-offs were $8.1 million in the current quarter resulting from $15.6 million of charge-offs and $7.5 million of recoveries, compared to $3.2 million of net charge-offs in the prior year quarter resulting from $16.2 million of charge-offs and $13.0 million of recoveries. Nonperforming loans and leases increased $26.9 million, or 11%, from the prior year quarter. Residential real estate loans and commercial real estate loans accounted for 66% and 23%, respectively, of total nonperforming loans at June 30, 2013. For additional discussion of the provision and allowance for credit losses, refer to the “Asset Quality” section on page 17.

Noninterest Expense (continued)

 

Compensation expense, the largest component of noninterest expense, equaled $326.9 million, up $13.1 million, or 4%, from $313.8 million in the prior year quarter. The increase is primarily attributable to higher staff levels and base pay adjustments. Staff on a full-time equivalent basis at June 30, 2013 totaled approximately 14,500, up 3% from a year ago.

Employee benefit expense equaled $64.2 million, down slightly from $64.9 million in the prior year quarter.

Expense associated with outside services totaled $136.2 million, up 2% from $133.7 million in the prior year quarter, primarily reflecting higher technical services and consulting expense in the current quarter.

Equipment and software expense totaled $92.1 million, down $7.3 million, or 7%, from $99.4 million in the prior year quarter. The prior year quarter included a $10.5 million software write-off. Excluding the prior period write-off, equipment and software expense increased 4% due to higher software amortization, partially offset by lower computer maintenance and repair expense.

Occupancy expense equaled $43.5 million, an increase of 2% from $42.6 million in the prior year quarter.

Noninterest income was $479.6 million, up $37.6 million, or 9%, from $442.0 million in the prior year quarter. The increase primarily reflects higher trust, investment and other servicing fees and increased foreign exchange trading income.

Custody and fund administration fees, the largest component of C&IS trust, investment and other servicing fees, increased 9%, primarily reflecting favorable equity markets and new business. C&IS investment management fees increased 3%, reflecting the favorable impact of markets and new business, partially offset by higher waived fees in money market mutual funds. Money market mutual fund fee waivers in C&IS, attributable to persistent low short-term interest rates, totaled $9.8 million in the current quarter, compared to waived fees of $7.0 million in the prior year quarter. Securities lending revenue increased slightly, reflecting higher loan volumes, partially offset by lower spreads in the current quarter.

Foreign exchange trading income totaled $69.8 million in the current quarter, an increase of $13.3 million, or 24%, from $56.5 million in the prior year quarter, attributable to higher currency market volatility and higher trading volumes.

Other noninterest income totaled $45.6 million in the current quarter, a decrease of 3% from $47.1 million in the prior year quarter.

Net interest income stated on an FTE basis was $66.0 million, down $6.0 million, or 8%, from $72.0 million in the prior year quarter, primarily reflecting a decrease in the net interest margin. The current quarter net interest margin equaled 0.61% as compared to 0.71% in the prior year quarter. The lower net interest margin is primarily due to lower yields on earning assets, partially offset by lower deposit rates as a result of the low interest rate environment. Earning assets averaged $44.1 billion for the quarter, an increase of $3.2 billion, or 8%, from $40.9 billion in the prior year quarter. Earning assets were primarily comprised of interest-bearing deposits with banks and loans and leases. Funding sources were primarily comprised of non-U.S. custody related interest-bearing deposits.

A provision for credit losses of $1.2 million was recorded in the current quarter as compared to the prior year quarter’s negative provision of $0.5 million. The current quarter provision reflects higher loan balances, partially offset by continued improvement in loan portfolio credit quality metrics.

Corporate and Institutional Services (continued)

Total C&IS noninterest expense, which includes the direct expense of the business unit, indirect expense allocations from NTGI and O&T for product and operating support, and indirect expense allocations for certain corporate support services, totaled $396.0 million, relatively unchanged from the prior year quarter’s $397.5 million.

Personal Financial Services

PFS net income for the current quarter was $96.5 million, down 2%, from $98.0 million in the prior year quarter. Noninterest income was $318.9 million, up $24.5 million, or 8%, from $294.4 million in the prior year quarter. Trust, investment and other servicing fees totaled $293.1 million in the current quarter, increasing $25.7 million, or 10%, from $267.4 million in the prior year quarter. The increased fees are primarily attributable to favorable equity markets and new business, partially offset by higher waived fees in money market mutual funds. Money market mutual fund fee waivers in PFS totaled $12.9 million in the current quarter compared with $10.0 million in the prior year quarter. Other noninterest income totaled $24.3 million, relatively unchanged from a year ago.

Net interest income stated on an FTE basis was $141.2 million, down $17.2 million, or 11%, from $158.4 million in the prior year quarter, primarily due to a lower net interest margin. The net interest margin decreased to 2.54% from 2.76% in the prior year quarter as a result of lower yields on earnings assets, partially offset by lower deposit rates as a result of the low interest rate environment. Loans and leases, which represented 99% of average earning assets, averaged $22.4 billion, down $635.0 million, or 3%, from $23.1 billion in the prior year quarter. Funding sources were primarily comprised of domestic retail interest-bearing deposits.

A provision for credit losses of $3.8 million was recorded in the current quarter, compared to $5.5 million in the prior year quarter. The current quarter provision primarily reflects continued weakness within the residential real estate loan class.

Total PFS noninterest expense, which includes the direct expense of the business unit, indirect expense allocations from NTGI and O&T for product and operating support, and indirect expense allocations for certain corporate support services, totaled $301.8 million compared with $289.5 million in the prior year quarter, an increase of $12.3 million, or 4%. The increase primarily reflects higher indirect expense allocations and higher compensation expense in the current quarter.

Treasury and Other

Treasury and Other includes income and expense associated with the wholesale funding activities and the investment portfolios of the Corporation and its principal subsidiary, The Northern Trust Company (Bank), and certain corporate-based expense, executive level compensation, and nonrecurring items not allocated to the business units. Other noninterest income in the current quarter totaled $1.9 million, compared to negative $2.0 million in the prior year quarter. Net interest income in the current quarter was $20.8 million, compared to $33.9 million in the prior year quarter, a decrease of $13.1 million, or 39%. The decrease primarily reflects lower yields on securities and a decline in average earning assets of $2.8 billion, or 15%, to $16.4 billion in the current quarter.

 

11


Treasury and Other (continued)

Noninterest expense for the quarter totaled $31.9 million compared with $30.3 million in the prior year quarter, an increase of 5%, reflecting current quarter increases within various miscellaneous expense categories.

Custody and fund administration fees, the largest component of C&IS fees, increased 8%, primarily reflecting the favorable impact of equity markets and new business. C&IS investment management fees increased 12%, reflecting the favorable impact of equity markets and new business, partially offset by higher waived fees in money market mutual funds. Money market mutual fund fee waivers in C&IS, attributable to persistent low short-term interest rates, totaled $18.6 million in the current period compared to waived fees of $17.6 million in the prior year period.

Trust, investment and other servicing fees in PFS totaled $575.1 million in the current period, increasing $49.5 million, or 9%, from $525.6 million in the prior year period. The increased fees in the current period are primarily attributable to favorable equity markets and new business, partially offset by higher waived fees in money market mutual funds. Waived fees in PFS, attributable to the low short-term interest rates, totaled $26.3 million in the current period compared with $24.8 million in the prior year period.

Foreign exchange trading income increased $9.5 million, or 8%, and totaled $130.8 million in the period compared with $121.3 million in the prior year period. The current period increase is attributable to higher currency market volatility and trading volumes compared to the prior year period.

Other operating income decreased $11.5 million, or 16%, for the period to $61.1 million compared with $72.6 million in the prior year period. The current period includes a $12.4 million write-off of certain fee receivables resulting from the correction of an accrual methodology followed in prior years.

Net investment security gains in the current period totaled $0.3 million, compared to $1.9 million losses in the prior year period. Net investment security losses in the prior year period included $3.1 million of credit-related other-than-temporary impairment.

Net Interest Income

Net interest income, stated on an FTE basis, totaled $461.7 million, a decrease of $68.9 million, or 13%, from $530.6 million reported in the prior year period. The decrease reflects a continued decline in the net interest margin to 1.13% from 1.26% in the prior year period. The current period decline in the net interest margin primarily reflects lower yields on earning assets and decreased average earning assets, partially offset by a lower cost of interest-related funds due to lower short-term interest rates. Total average earning assets for the period were $82.6 billion, down $2.0 billion, or 2%, from $84.6 billion in the prior year period.

Provision for Credit Losses

The provision for credit losses was $10.0 million for the current and prior year period. Net charge-offs totaled $16.8 million in the current period, compared to $9.0 million in the 2012 period, and included recoveries of $11.4 million and $21.6 million, respectively. The current period provision reflects improvement in the commercial and institutional and commercial real estate loan classes, partially offset by continued weakness in the residential real estate loan class. For a fuller discussion of the consolidated allowance and provision for credit losses refer to the “Asset Quality” section on page 17.

Noninterest Expense

Noninterest expense totaled $1.46 billion for the period, up $17.7 million, or 1%, from the prior year period’s $1.44 billion. The components of noninterest expense are provided below.

Compensation expense, the largest component of noninterest expense, equaled $647.2 million, up $11.8 million, or 2% from prior year period’s $635.4 million. The increase is primarily attributable to higher staff levels and base pay adjustments.

The decrease in employee benefit expense of $5.5 million primarily reflects lower expense associated with employee medical benefits.

Outside services expense increased 2% from the prior year period, primarily reflecting higher technical services and consulting expense.

Equipment and software expense totaled $183.5 million, down $6.7 million, or 4% from $190.2 million in the prior year period. The prior year period included equipment and software write-offs of $15.1 million. Excluding the prior period write-off, equipment and software expense increased 5% in the current period, primarily due to higher amortization.

Provision for Income Taxes

Total income tax expense was $173.2 million for the six months ended June 30, 2013, representing an effective tax rate of 32.8%. This compares with $162.2 million of income tax expense and an effective tax rate of 32.3% in the prior year period.

BALANCE SHEET

Total assets at June 30, 2013 were $97.2 billion and averaged $92.8 billion for the current quarter compared with total assets of $94.5 billion at June 30, 2012 and average total assets of $92.4 billion in the prior year quarter. Average balances are considered to be a better measure of balance sheet trends as period-end balances can be impacted on a short term basis by deposit and withdrawal activity involving large balances of short-term client funds. Loans and leases totaled $28.8 billion at June 30, 2013 and averaged $28.6 billion in the current quarter, down 3% and 2%, respectively, compared to $29.6 billion at June 30, 2012 and a $29.1 billion average in the prior year quarter. Securities, including Federal Reserve and Federal Home Loan Bank stock and certain community development investments which are classified in other assets in the consolidated balance sheet, totaled $30.7 billion at June 30, 2013 and averaged $30.7 billion for the current quarter, up 3% and down 2%, respectively, compared to $29.7 billion at June 30, 2012 and $31.5 billion on average in the prior year quarter. Federal funds sold and securities purchased under agreements to resell, interest-bearing deposits with banks, and Federal Reserve deposits and other interest-bearing assets in aggregate totaled $25.1 billion at June 30, 2013 and averaged $23.8 billion in the current quarter, down 7% and up 5%, respectively, from the prior year quarter. Interest-bearing deposits at June 30, 2013 totaled $56.8 billion and averaged $55.9 billion, up 3% and 4%, respectively, compared to $55.3 billion at June 30, 2012 and a $53.6 billion average in the prior year quarter. Noninterest-bearing deposits at June 30, 2013 totaled $19.7 billion and averaged $17.5 billion, down 9% and 11%, respectively, compared to $21.7 billion at June 30, 2012 and a $19.7 billion average in the prior year quarter.

 

15


BALANCE SHEET (continued)

 

Total stockholders’ equity averaged $7.6 billion, up $0.3 million, or 5%, from the prior year quarter’s average of $7.3 billion. The increase primarily reflects earnings, partially offset by dividend declarations and the repurchase of common stock pursuant to the Corporation’s share buyback program. During the three and six months ended June 30, 2013, the Corporation repurchased 281,326 shares at a cost of $15.3 million ($54.28 average price per share) and 1,684,692 shares at a cost of $89.8 million ($53.28 average price per share), respectively. The Corporation’s common stock repurchase authorization was replaced in April of 2013, pursuant to which the Corporation is authorized to purchase up to 11.7 million additional shares after June 30, 2013.

Northern Trust’s risk-based capital ratios remained strong at June 30, 2013 and exceeded the minimum regulatory requirements established by U.S. banking regulators. The Corporation and the Bank each had capital ratios at June 30, 2013 that were above the level required for classification as a “well capitalized” institution. Shown below are the capital ratios of the Corporation and the Bank as of June 30, 2013 and December 31, 2012.

Statement of Cash Flows

For the six months ended June 30, 2013, net cash used in operating activities was $1.3 billion, attributable to a net increase in required collateral posted with derivative counterparties as a result of market movements on client-related and trading derivative instruments.

Net cash provided by investing activities was $2.7 billion for the six months ended June 30, 2013, primarily the result of decreases in Federal Reserve deposits and other interest-bearing assets and in loans and leases, as well as net changes within securities held to maturity and available for sale and within client settlement receivables. The net decrease in Federal Reserve deposits and other interest-bearing assets reflects lower client deposit levels, partially offset by higher levels of short-term borrowing.

For the six months ended June 30, 2013, net cash used in financing activities totaled $436.5 million, primarily reflecting a decline in the level of deposits, partially offset by an increase in federal funds purchased and short-term other borrowings. The decline in deposits was primarily due to a decline in U.S. demand deposits from the level at December 31, 2012, largely driven by the expiration on that date of the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation’s Temporary Liquidity Guarantee Program which had provided unlimited deposit insurance. The increases in federal funds purchased and short-term other borrowings reflect additional borrowing activity in the federal funds market and additional short-term borrowings from the Federal Home Loan Bank.

ASSET QUALITY

Securities Portfolio

Northern Trust maintains a high quality securities portfolio, with 85% of the combined available for sale, held to maturity, and trading account portfolios at June 30, 2013 composed of U.S. Treasury and government sponsored agency securities and triple-A rated corporate notes, asset-backed securities, supranational, sovereign and non-U.S. agency bonds, auction rate securities and obligations of states and political subdivisions. The remaining portfolio was composed of corporate notes, asset-backed securities, negotiable certificates of deposit, obligations of states and political subdivisions, auction rate securities and other securities, of which as a percentage of the total securities portfolio, 4% was rated double-A, 3% was rated below double-A, and 8% was not rated by Standard and Poor’s or Moody’s Investors Service (primarily negotiable certificates of deposits of banks whose long term ratings are at least A).

Net unrealized gains within the investment securities portfolio totaled $40.6 million at June 30, 2013, comprised of $172.0 million and $131.4 million of gross unrealized gains and losses, respectively. Of the unrealized losses on securities at June 30, 2013, the largest component, totaling $61.3 million, was corporate debt securities, primarily reflecting widened credit spreads and higher market rates since purchase; 50% of the corporate debt portfolio is backed by guarantees provided by U.S. and non-U.S. governmental entities. Unrealized losses of $40.9 million related to government sponsored agency securities are primarily attributable to changes in market rates since their purchase.

 

17


ASSET QUALITY (continued)

 

There were no other-than-temporary impairment losses for the three or six months ended June 30, 2013 or the three months ended June 30, 2012. Credit-related losses recognized in earnings on other-than-temporarily impaired securities totaled $3.1 million for the six months ended June 30, 2012. Northern Trust has evaluated non-agency residential mortgage-backed securities, and all other securities with unrealized losses, for possible other-than-temporary impairment in accordance with GAAP and Northern Trust’s security impairment review policy.

Northern Trust is a participant in the repurchase agreement market. This provides a relatively low cost alternative for short-term funding. Securities purchased under agreements to resell and securities sold under agreements to repurchase are accounted for as collateralized financings and recorded at the amounts at which the securities were acquired or sold plus accrued interest. To minimize potential credit risk associated with these transactions, the fair value of the securities purchased or sold is monitored, limits are set on exposure with counterparties, and the financial condition of counterparties is regularly assessed. It is Northern Trust’s policy to take possession of securities purchased under agreements to resell. Securities sold under agreements to repurchase are held by the counterparty until the repurchase.

Eurozone Exposure

Northern Trust continues to closely monitor developments related to the European debt crisis. Northern Trust considers Ireland, Portugal, Italy, Greece, Spain and Cyprus to be those eurozone countries experiencing significant economic, fiscal and/or political strains. At June 30, 2013, Northern Trust’s gross exposure to obligors in Ireland totaled approximately $1.2 billion, or 1% of Northern Trust’s total consolidated assets. There was no exposure to obligors in Portugal, Italy, Greece, Spain or Cyprus and no exposure to sovereign debt securities in those countries as of June 30, 2013. Of the total exposure to obligors in Ireland, $6 million was to banks and the remainder was to commercial and other borrowers, primarily funds domiciled in Ireland whose assets and investment activities are broadly diversified by investment strategy, issuer type, country of risk, and/or instrument type. Exposures to these borrowers in Ireland may be secured or unsecured, committed or uncommitted, but are typically for short periods of a year or less for foreign exchange, overdraft accommodations, and loans. Exposure levels at June 30, 2013 reflect Northern Trust’s risk management policies and practices, which operate to limit exposures to higher risk European financial and sovereign entities.

Nonperforming Loans and Other Real Estate Owned

Nonperforming assets consist of nonperforming loans and Other Real Estate Owned (OREO). OREO is comprised of commercial and residential properties acquired in partial or total satisfaction of loans.

ASSET QUALITY (continued)

 

The following table provides the amounts of nonperforming loans, by segment and class, and of OREO that were outstanding at the dates shown, as well as the balance of loans that were delinquent 90 days or more and still accruing interest. The balance of loans delinquent 90 days or more and still accruing interest can fluctuate widely based on the timing of cash collections, renegotiations and renewals.

Maintaining a low level of nonperforming assets is important to the ongoing success of a financial institution. In addition to the negative impact on both net interest income and credit losses, nonperforming assets also increase operating costs due to the expense associated with collection efforts. Nonperforming assets of $281.2 million as of June 30, 2013 continue to reflect the deterioration in overall economic conditions experienced since the onset of the economic downturn in 2008 and its effect on Northern Trust’s loan portfolio, primarily within the residential real estate and commercial real estate loan classes.

Importantly, Northern Trust focuses its lending efforts on clients who are looking to utilize a full range of financial services with Northern Trust. Northern Trust’s underwriting standards do not allow for the origination of loan types generally considered to be of high risk in nature, such as option ARM loans, subprime loans, loans with initial “teaser” rates, and loans with excessively high loan-to-value ratios. Residential real estate loans consist of conventional home mortgages and equity credit lines, which generally require loan to collateral values of no more than 65% to 80% at inception. Revaluations of supporting collateral are obtained upon refinancing or default or when otherwise considered warranted. Collateral revaluations for mortgages are performed by independent third parties.

The commercial real estate portfolio consists of commercial mortgages and construction, acquisition and development loans extended primarily to highly experienced developers and/or investors well known to Northern Trust. Underwriting standards generally reflect conservative loan-to-value ratios and debt service coverage requirements. Recourse to borrowers through guarantees is also commonly required.

ASSET QUALITY (continued)

 

Provision and Allowance for Credit Losses

The provision for credit losses is the charge to current earnings that is determined by management, through a disciplined credit review process, to be the amount needed to maintain the allowance for credit losses at an appropriate level to absorb probable credit losses that have been identified with specific borrower relationships (specific loss component) and probable losses that are believed to be inherent in the loan and lease portfolios, unfunded commitments, and standby letters of credit (inherent loss component). Control processes and analyses employed to evaluate the appropriateness of the allowance for credit losses are reviewed on at least an annual basis and modified as considered necessary.

The amount of specific allowance is determined through an individual evaluation of loans and lending-related commitments considered impaired that is based on expected future cash flows, the value of collateral, and other factors that may impact the borrower’s ability to pay. Changes in collateral values, delinquency ratios, portfolio volume and concentration, and other asset quality metrics, including management’s subjective evaluation of economic and business conditions, result in adjustments of qualitative allowance factors that are applied in the determination of inherent allowance requirements.

The provision for credit losses totaled $5.0 million in the current quarter and the prior year quarter. Residential real estate loans continued to reflect weakness relative to the overall portfolio, accounting for 66% and 68% of total nonperforming loans and leases at June 30, 2013 and 2012, respectively.

Note 6 to the consolidated financial statements includes a table that details the changes in the allowance for credit losses during the three and six months ended June 30, 2013 and 2012 due to charge-offs, recoveries, and the provision for credit losses.

The following table shows the specific portion of the allowance and the inherent portion of the allowance and its components, each by loan and lease segment and class.

MARKET RISK MANAGEMENT

As described in the 2012 Annual Report to Shareholders, Northern Trust manages its interest rate risk through two primary measurement techniques: simulation of earnings and simulation of economic value of equity. Also, as part of its risk management activities, it regularly measures the risk of loss associated with foreign currency positions using a Value-at-Risk (VaR) model.

Based on this continuing evaluation process, Northern Trust’s interest rate risk position, as measured by current market implied forward interest rates and sensitivity analyses, and the VaR associated with the foreign exchange trading portfolio, have not changed significantly since December 31, 2012.

RECONCILIATION OF REPORTED NET INTEREST INCOME TO FULLY TAXABLE EQUIVALENT

The tables below present a reconciliation of interest income and net interest income prepared in accordance with GAAP to interest income and net interest income on a fully taxable equivalent (FTE) basis, a non-GAAP financial measure. Management believes an FTE presentation provides a clearer indication of net interest margins for comparative purposes.

FACTORS AFFECTING FUTURE RESULTS

This report contains statements that may be considered forward-looking, such as the statements relating to Northern Trust’s financial goals, capital adequacy, dividend policy, expansion and business development plans, risk management policies, anticipated expense levels and projected profit improvements, business prospects and positioning with respect to market, demographic and pricing trends, strategic initiatives, reengineering and outsourcing activities, new business results and outlook, changes in securities market prices, credit quality including allowance levels, planned capital expenditures and technology spending, anticipated tax benefits and expenses, and the effects of any extraordinary events and various other matters (including developments with respect to litigation, other contingent liabilities and obligations, and regulation involving Northern Trust and changes in accounting policies, standards and interpretations) on Northern Trust’s business and results.

Forward-looking statements are typically identified by words or phrases such as “believe”, “expect”, “anticipate”, “intend”, “estimate”, “may increase”, “may fluctuate”, “plan”, “goal”, “target”, “strategy”, and similar expressions or future or conditional verbs such as “may”, “will”, “should”, “would”, and “could.” Forward-looking statements are Northern Trust’s current estimates or expectations of future events or future results. Actual results could differ materially from the results indicated by these statements because the realization of those results is subject to many risks and uncertainties including: the health of the U.S. and international economies and particularly the continuing uncertainty in Europe; the downgrade of U.S. Government issued and other securities; the health and soundness of the financial institutions and other counterparties with which Northern Trust conducts business; changes in financial markets, including debt and equity markets, that impact the value, liquidity, or credit ratings of financial assets in general, or financial assets in particular investment funds, client portfolios, or securities lending collateral pools, including those funds, portfolios, collateral pools, and other financial assets with respect to which Northern Trust has taken, or may in the future take, actions to provide asset value stability or additional liquidity; the impact of stress in the financial markets, the effectiveness of governmental actions taken in response, and the effect of such governmental actions on Northern Trust, its competitors and counterparties, financial markets generally and availability of credit specifically, and the U.S. and international economies, including special deposit assessments or potentially higher FDIC premiums; changes in foreign exchange trading client volumes, fluctuations and volatility in foreign currency exchange rates, and Northern Trust’s success in assessing and mitigating the risks arising from such changes, fluctuations and volatility; decline in the value of securities held in Northern Trust’s investment portfolio, particularly asset-backed securities, the liquidity and pricing of which may be negatively impacted by periods of economic turmoil and financial market disruptions; uncertainties inherent in the complex and subjective judgments required to assess credit risk and establish appropriate allowances therefor; difficulties in measuring, or determining whether there is other-than-temporary impairment in, the value of securities held in Northern Trust’s investment portfolio; Northern Trust’s success in managing various risks inherent in its business, including credit risk, operational risk, interest rate risk and liquidity risk, particularly during times of economic uncertainty and volatility in the credit and financial markets; geopolitical risks and the risks of extraordinary events such as natural disasters, terrorist events, war and the U.S. and other governments’ responses to those events; the pace and extent of

continued globalization of investment activity and growth in worldwide financial assets; regulatory and monetary policy developments; the impact of money market reforms; failure to obtain regulatory approvals when required, including for the use and distribution of capital; changes in tax laws, accounting requirements or interpretations and other legislation in the U.S. or other countries that could affect Northern Trust or its clients, including changes in accounting rules for fair value measurements and recognizing impairments; changes in the nature and activities of Northern Trust’s competition, including increased consolidation within the financial services industry; Northern Trust’s success in maintaining existing business and continuing to generate new business in its existing markets; the impact of equity markets on fee revenue; Northern Trust’s success in identifying and penetrating targeted markets, through acquisition, strategic alliance or otherwise; Northern Trust’s success in integrating acquisitions and strategic alliances; Northern Trust’s success in addressing the complex needs of a global client base across multiple time zones and from multiple locations, and managing compliance with legal, tax, regulatory and other requirements in areas of faster growth in its businesses, especially in immature markets; Northern Trust’s ability to maintain a product mix that achieves acceptable margins; Northern Trust’s ability to continue to generate investment results that satisfy its clients and continue to develop its array of investment products; Northern Trust’s success in generating revenue in its securities lending business for itself and its clients, especially in periods of economic and financial market uncertainty; Northern Trust’s success in recruiting and retaining the necessary personnel to support business growth and expansion and maintain sufficient expertise to support increasingly complex products and services; Northern Trust’s success in implementing its revenue enhancement and expense management initiatives; Northern Trust’s ability, as products, methods of delivery, and client requirements change or become more complex, to continue to fund and accomplish innovation, improve risk management practices and controls, and address operating risks, including human errors or omissions, data security breach risks, pricing or valuation of securities, fraud, systems performance or defects, systems interruptions, and breakdowns in processes or internal controls; Northern Trust’s success in controlling expenses, particularly in a difficult economic environment; uncertainties inherent in Northern Trust’s assumptions concerning its pension plan, including discount rates and expected contributions, returns and payouts; increased costs of compliance and other risks associated with changes in regulation and the current regulatory environment, including the requirements of the Basel II and Basel III capital regime and the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act (the “Dodd-Frank Act”), areas of increased regulatory emphasis and oversight in the U.S. and other countries such as anti-money laundering, anti-bribery, and client privacy and the potential for substantial changes in the legal, regulatory and enforcement framework and oversight applicable to financial institutions in reaction to adverse financial market events, including changes pursuant to the Dodd-Frank Act that may, among other things, affect the leverage limits and risk-based capital and liquidity requirements for certain financial institutions, including Northern Trust, require those financial institutions to pay higher assessments, expose them to certain liabilities of their subsidiary depository institutions, and restrict or increase the regulation of certain activities, including foreign exchange, carried on by financial institutions, including Northern Trust; risks that evolving regulations, such as Basel II and Basel III, and potential legislation and regulations, including regulations that may be promulgated

FACTORS AFFECTING FUTURE RESULTS (continued)

 

under the Dodd-Frank Act, could affect required regulatory capital for financial institutions, including Northern Trust, potentially resulting in changes to the cost and composition of capital for Northern Trust; risks and uncertainties inherent in the litigation and regulatory process, including the adequacy of contingent liability, tax, and other accruals; and the risk of events that could harm Northern Trust’s reputation and so undermine the confidence of clients, counterparties, rating agencies, and stockholders.

Some of these and other risks and uncertainties that may affect future results are discussed in more detail in the section of “Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations” captioned “Risk Management” in the 2012 Annual Report to Shareholders (pages 47-59), in the section of the “Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements” in the 2012 Annual Report to Shareholders captioned “Note 24 – Contingent Liabilities” (pages 108-110), in the sections of “Item 1 – Business” of the 2012 Annual Report on Form 10-K captioned “Government Monetary and Fiscal Policies,” “Competition” and “Regulation and Supervision” (pages 2-14), and in “Item 1A – Risk Factors” of the 2012 Annual Report on Form 10-K (pages 28-38). All forward-looking statements included in this report are based upon information presently available, and Northern Trust assumes no obligation to update any forward-looking statements.
