    Our franchises remain strong and continue to provide much needed financing to the small business and middle market sectors despite the continued uncertainties around the U.S. and global economies

    NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--CIT Group Inc. (NYSE: CIT), a leading provider of financing to small businesses and middle market companies, today reported a net loss for the quarter ended September 30, 2011 of $16 million, $0.08 per diluted share, down from net income of $116 million, $0.58 per diluted share a year ago1, on reduced fresh start accounting (“FSA”) benefits and higher costs associated with the prepayments of first and second lien debt. Net income for the nine months ended September 30, 2011 was $1 million, $0.01 per diluted share, down from $442 million, $2.20 per diluted share for 2010.

    “Our franchises remain strong and continue to provide much needed financing to the small business and middle market sectors despite the continued uncertainties around the U.S. and global economies,” said John A. Thain, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. “We advanced our 2011 priorities by growing business volumes, accessing diverse funding markets, and further reducing high cost debt. In October, we successfully launched CIT Bank online and eliminated most of the restrictive covenants in our Series A Second Lien Notes. We will continue to capitalize on market opportunities and make progress on our strategic objectives.”

    Summary of Third Quarter Financial Results

    Third quarter operating results reflect increases in new business volume, continued asset sales and lower funding, credit and operating costs. Third quarter pre-tax income was $14 million, improved from a pre-tax loss of $22 million in the prior quarter. Both periods include significant costs associated with debt redemptions ($169 million in the current quarter and $163 million in the second quarter), as well as sizable benefits from net FSA accretion ($95 million in the current quarter and $124 million in the second quarter). The third quarter net loss of $16 million ($0.08 per share) resulted from a $31 million provision for income taxes, an increase of $4 million from the second quarter. Pre-tax results for the quarter ended September 30, 2010 totaled $236 million, which included $262 million of net FSA accretion benefit and $10 million of debt redemption costs.

    Total assets at September 30, 2011 were $44.5 billion, down $3.5 billion from June 30, 2011 and down $9.0 billion from a year ago. Cash and short-term investments declined $2.7 billion sequentially to $7.3 billion reflecting actions taken on several liability management initiatives, including the previously mentioned debt repayments. Total loans decreased $0.5 billion during the quarter to $21.8 billion primarily due to asset sales and run-off of the consumer portfolio as funded new business volume exceeded portfolio collections in the commercial segments. Operating lease equipment increased slightly to $11.2 billion, reflecting purchases of aircraft and railcars.

    Funded new business volume of $1.9 billion increased 8% sequentially and 75% from the prior- year quarter while committed new business volume of $2.3 billion increased 12% sequentially and more than doubled from a year ago. Corporate Finance, Transportation Finance and Vendor Finance each reported increases in committed volume when compared to both the prior quarter and prior-year quarter. Factoring volume of $6.8 billion was up 10% sequentially, reflecting seasonality, but was down modestly from the prior-year period as growth in CIT’s U.S. factoring volume was offset by lower volume from our European operation that is in wind-down.

    Net finance revenue2 improved sequentially due to lower accelerated debt discount amortization and improved funding costs, but declined from a year ago reflecting a lower level of earning assets and less FSA accretion. Average earning assets of $33.7 billion decreased $0.8 billion sequentially and $5.9 billion from a year ago largely due to asset sales. Net finance revenue as a percentage of average earning assets (“finance margin”) was 2.30%, compared to 0.80% last quarter and 3.44% the prior-year quarter. Excluding FSA and debt prepayment penalties, finance margin was 1.60%, up from 1.45% in the prior quarter and 0.95% a year ago. Compared to the second quarter, the third quarter finance margin reflected stable asset yields and a reduction in debt costs, partially offset by reduced benefits on a secured borrowing facility (the Total Return Swap). The improvement from the prior year quarter was primarily driven by lower funding costs. Net operating lease revenue2 improved from the prior quarter reflecting lower depreciation expense due to lease equipment moved to held for sale.

    Provision for credit losses was $48 million, down 44% sequentially and 71% from the prior year reflecting declines in net charge-offs and improved credit metrics.

    Other income (excluding operating lease rentals) decreased 2% sequentially and 19% from the prior-year quarter. The sequential decline predominantly reflects lower fees and other revenue. Compared to the prior year quarter the decline also includes lower gains on asset sales. Factoring commissions increased sequentially and declined slightly from the prior-year quarter, consistent with volume trends.

    Operating expenses decreased 11% sequentially and 4% from the prior year to $220 million. The second quarter of 2011 included certain non-recurring expenses in Vendor Finance and higher litigation costs, while the prior-year period included a $6 million charge for severance and facilities consolidation. Headcount at September 30, 2011 was 3,480, unchanged from June 30, 2011 and down 8% from a year ago.

    The loss on debt extinguishments reflects the write-off of original issue discount and fees associated with the repayment of the first lien term loan in August, partially offset by gains on the $457 million of Series A debt repurchased in the open market during the quarter.

    Provision for income taxes was $31 million and predominantly reflects provisions for taxable income generated by our international operations as we continue to record valuation allowances on U.S. losses.

    Credit and Allowance for Loan Losses

    Credit metrics continued to improve as net charge-offs, non-accrual loans and inflows to non-accruals were down from the prior quarter and the prior-year quarter.

    Net charge-offs were $47 million, down from $56 million last quarter and $101 million in the third quarter of 2010. The favorable comparisons were driven primarily by Vendor Finance, which had strong recoveries in the current quarter. Also, in prior periods, Vendor Finance reported higher charge-offs relating to liquidating portfolios and the acceleration of delinquency-based charge-offs that occurred in the second half of last year. Net charge-offs and the provision for credit losses do not reflect recoveries of charge-offs on pre-emergence loans and loans classified as held for sale. Recoveries on these loans are recorded in other income and were $36 million, $25 million and $52 million for the current quarter, the prior quarter and the third quarter of 2010, respectively.

    The provision for credit losses was $48 million, down from $85 million last quarter and $165 million in the prior year quarter. The trend in provisions reflects a continued reduction in specific reserves, and improved portfolio credit quality.

    Non-accrual loans were $914 million at September 30, 2011, down 14% and 55% from the prior quarter and the prior-year quarter, respectively. All segments reported declines from the prior periods, both in amount and as a percentage of receivables, with the exception of Trade Finance, which reported a sequential quarter increase.

    The allowance for loan losses declined to $414 million from $424 million at June 30, 2011 and $416 million at December 31, 2010. As a percentage of finance receivables, the allowance was 1.9%, unchanged from June 30, 2011 and up from 1.7% at December 31, 2010.

    Management also evaluates credit performance with credit metrics that exclude the impact of FSA. On this basis, gross charge-offs were $86 million, down from $97 million in the prior quarter and $233 million in the prior-year quarter. On the same basis, non-accrual loans of $1.2 billion decreased from $1.4 billion at June 30, 2011 and $2.6 billion at September 30, 2010.

    Capital and Funding

    Preliminary Tier 1 and Total Capital ratios at September 30, 2011 were 19.0% and 19.9%, respectively, down from 19.3% and 20.2% at June 30, 2011. Preliminary risk-weighted assets totaled $44.6 billion, up from $44.0 billion at June 30, 2011. Book value per share at September 30, 2011 was $44.38, down from $44.58 at June 30, 2011. Tangible book value per share at September 30, 2011 was $42.69, down from $42.84 at June 30, 2011.

    Cash and short-term investment securities totaled $7.3 billion at September 30, 2011 ($6.9 billion of cash and $0.4 billion of short-term investments), down from $10.1 billion at June 30, 2011. The sequential decline largely reflects the repayment of first and second lien debt. Cash and short-term investment securities at September 30, 2011 consisted of $3.2 billion at the bank holding company, $0.8 billion at CIT Bank, $1.3 billion at operating subsidiaries and $2.0 billion in restricted balances. The $1.7 billion decline in the restricted balance from June 30, 2011 primarily reflects a $1.3 billion decline in the cash sweep account balance to $1.2 billion. In addition to the cash and short-term investment securities, CIT had approximately $800 million of committed liquidity available under its newly established $2 billion revolving credit facility (the “Revolving Facility”) at September 30, 2011. The Revolving Facility matures in August 2015 and currently has an interest rate of LIBOR + 2.75% (with no floor) that can adjust down to as low as LIBOR +2.00% based on CIT’s senior unsecured credit rating.

    During the third quarter, CIT completed the following liability restructuring transactions:

    • repaid and extinguished its $3 billion First Lien Term Loan using the proceeds from the Revolving Facility and cash.
    • redeemed $1 billion of Series A Notes maturing in 2014 at a price of 102% of the aggregate principal amount.
    • repurchased approximately $300 million of Series A Notes maturing in 2014 and approximately $160 million of Series A Notes maturing in 2017 at a discount.

    In aggregate, these items resulted in a $20 million prepayment penalty, $2 million of net FSA debt discount amortization and net loss on debt extinguishments of $147 million.

    In October 2011, CIT redeemed the remaining $460 million of Series A Notes maturing in 2014 and repurchased at a discount approximately $210 million and $100 million of Series A Notes maturing in 2016 and 2017, respectively; approximately $6.5 billion of Series A Notes remain outstanding after these transactions. In aggregate, these actions will increase fourth quarter interest expense by approximately $70 million for the acceleration of FSA discount accretion and prepayment penalties, and result in a gain on debt extinguishment of approximately $10 million.

    During the third quarter, CIT also renewed a $550 million committed conduit facility at a lower cost and with a longer term. The facility has a committed revolving period that expires in September 2013 and has a final maturity in November 2013. Total committed facilities approximated $6.4 billion, with $3.0 billion undrawn at September 30, 2011.

    Segment Highlights

    Corporate Finance

    Corporate Finance pre-tax earnings were $37 million, down from $51 million in the prior quarter and $139 million in the prior-year quarter, primarily due to lower loan FSA accretion and partially offset by lower loan loss provisions. The sequential decline also reflects lower gains on asset sales. New committed loan volume rose 9% from the second quarter to $1.2 billion while new funded volume declined 4% to $700 million reflecting lower initial fundings on new asset-based revolvers. Current period volumes, both funded and committed, were significantly above those of the prior-year period. CIT Bank originated approximately 90% of the U.S. funded volume. The $240 million decrease in financing and leasing assets was largely attributable to sales and foreign exchange translations. Non-accrual loans declined 15% from June 30, 2011 to $0.7 billion at September 30, 2011 reflecting sales, charge-offs and repayments. Net charge-offs were $41 million, essentially unchanged with the prior quarter.

    Transportation Finance

    Transportation Finance pre-tax earnings were $100 million, up from $37 million in the prior quarter and $19 million in the prior-year quarter. The sequential increase reflects higher gains on assets sales, proceeds from an insurance claim, and lower interest expense resulting from lower FSA debt accretion. Comparisons to 2010 periods reflect lower interest expense due to changes in segment allocations instituted in 2011. On a comparable basis, pre-tax earnings would have been $59 million in the prior year quarter. Non-accrual assets declined and there were no charge-offs.

    Equipment utilization remains strong. At September 30, 2011 all commercial aircraft were leased (including commitments) and rail fleet utilization (including commitments) was approximately 97%, up modestly from June 30, 2011. Rental income was up slightly on higher asset levels and higher utilization. New business volume was $558 million, reflecting the addition of aircraft and railcars as well as new aerospace and defense loans originated by CIT Bank. All aircraft to be delivered during the next 12 months have lease commitments.

    Trade Finance

    Trade Finance pre-tax income was $11 million for the quarter, improved from pre-tax income of $1 million in the prior quarter and a pre-tax loss of $12 million in the prior-year quarter. The sequential quarter improvement reflected seasonally higher volume and lower interest expense resulting from less FSA debt accretion and borrowing costs.

    Factoring volume was $6.8 billion, up seasonally from the second quarter and down from $7.0 billion for the 2010 third quarter, due to the wind-down of our European factoring operation. Domestic factored volume increased approximately 1% from the 2010 third quarter. Non-accrual balances increased $21 million from the prior quarter.

    Vendor Finance

    Vendor Finance pre-tax earnings were $77 million, improved from $22 million in the prior quarter but down from $89 million in the prior-year quarter. The sequential quarter improvement included lower credit costs which reflected higher recoveries, increased gain on asset sales, and lower operating expenses due to non-recurring items in the prior quarter. The decline from the prior-year quarter reflected reduced FSA accretion and lower asset levels partially offset by higher gain on asset sales and reduced credit costs.

    Total financing and leasing assets decreased to $4.5 billion from $4.7 billion at June 30, 2011, due primarily to the sale of approximately $125 million in assets in Europe and foreign exchange translations, and declined $1.2 billion from September 30, 2010 as asset sales and net portfolio collections outpaced new business volume. Funded new business volume was $607 million, a sequential increase of approximately 2%; excluding the Dell Canada platform, which was sold last quarter, funded volume rose approximately 10%. Funded volume increased approximately 12% from the prior-year quarter, or 25% excluding the impact of Dell Canada. Approximately 75% of U.S. funded new business volume was originated in CIT Bank.

    Portfolio credit quality improved across all metrics. Credit losses decreased from the prior quarter due to both lower gross charge-offs and higher recoveries. Non-accrual loans were down 36% from June 30, 2011, due to the sale of the European assets and overall improvement in portfolio quality. The level of delinquent loans also declined.

    Consumer Finance

    Consumer Finance pre-tax earnings were $10 million, improved from $7 million in the prior quarter and a pre-tax loss of $14 million in the prior-year quarter. Government-guaranteed student loans declined by approximately $150 million from the prior quarter reflecting portfolio run-off.

    Corporate and Other

    Corporate and other includes the losses on debt extinguishments, prepayment penalty on second lien debt and certain corporate liquidity costs, which were allocated to the segments in 2010. In addition, 2011 periods reflect refinements to the risk-based economic capital allocated to each of the segments. These changes reduced the interest expense charged to Transportation Finance, but were not significant to the other segments.

    CIT Bank

    CIT Bank loan origination activity continued to increase. Committed loan volume rose 10% from the prior quarter to $1.2 billion, of which $835 million was funded. Total assets were $7.5 billion, up from $6.9 billion at June 30, 2011. Total loans were $6.3 billion, up from $5.7 billion at June 30, 2011. Total loans included $2.9 billion of commercial loans at September 30, 2011, up from $2.2 billion at June 30, 2011. Cash was $0.8 billion at September 30, 2011, essentially unchanged from June 30, 2011. Total deposits were $4.9 billion, up from $4.4 billion. During the quarter, the Bank issued approximately $580 million of CDs at an average rate of approximately 1.5% that replaced maturing CDs at higher rates. CIT Bank’s preliminary Total Capital ratio was 41.1% and the Tier 1 Leverage ratio was 26.9%.

    CIT Bank continued to expand its business activities. In July the U.S. Vendor Finance platform transferred into CIT Bank, which complements the existing middle-market and small business lending activities. In October, CIT Bank launched an online bank that currently offers a range of Certificates of Deposits to consumers (go to BankOnCIT.com for more information).
