NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--CIT Group Inc. (NYSE: CIT) cit.com, a leading provider of financing to small businesses and middle market companies, today reported a net loss for the quarter ended June 30, 2012 of $71 million, $0.35 per diluted share. This net loss compares to a net loss of $50 million, $0.25 per diluted share, for the second quarter of 2011 and includes debt refinancing charges of $286 million related to the prepayment of $4.2 billion of high cost debt, while the year-ago period included debt refinancing charges of $163 million related to the prepayment of $2.5 billion of high cost debt. Pre-tax income excluding debt refinancing charges was $245 million, up from $134 million in the year ago quarter. Net loss for the six months ended June 30, 2012 was $517 million, $2.57 per diluted share, and included debt refinancing charges of $906 million, compared to net income of $16 million, $0.08 per diluted share, in the comparable 2011 period.

“We continue to make progress towards our long term targets. Our results this quarter, while impacted by the repayment of high cost debt, reflect our efforts to grow our businesses as we meet the financing needs of our small business and middle market clients,” said John Thain, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. “CIT Bank reached two significant milestones - $2 billion of internet deposits and $10 billion of assets - and will continue to play an important role in our growth strategy.”

Summary of Second Quarter Financial Results

Second quarter operating results reflect increased business activity as well as continued execution of our liability management strategy. While we reported a $42 million pre-tax loss for the quarter, pre-tax income excluding debt refinancing charges was $245 million, improved from $214 million and $134 million in the first quarter of 2012 and the year-ago quarter, respectively. Pre-tax income excluding debt refinancing charges and net FSA accretion/amortization2 was $119 million, up from $17 million in the year-ago period but down sequentially primarily due to lower gains on asset sales. See the Non-GAAP disclosure table on page 16 for additional information.

Total assets at June 30, 2012 were $42.8 billion, down $1.4 billion from March 31, 2012, and $5.4 billion from June 30, 2011. Commercial financing and leasing assets increased from prior periods, to $29 billion, while we further reduced consumer assets primarily through the sale of $1.1 billion of student loans. Total loans of $20.1 billion declined $2.2 billion from a year ago, and $0.4 billion sequentially, largely due to the sale of student loans. Operating lease equipment increased $1 billion from a year ago to $11.9 billion reflecting aircraft and rail car deliveries, and was essentially unchanged from March 31, 2012. Cash and short-term investments decreased $0.3 billion from March 31, 2012 to $7.0 billion as we paid down high-cost debt and improved the efficiency of our liquidity management.

Funded new business volume of $2.4 billion increased 38% from the prior-year quarter, while committed new business volume of $2.7 billion increased 31% with meaningful improvements in Corporate Finance, Vendor Finance and Transportation Finance. Volume increased sequentially in Transportation Finance, reflecting both lending and leasing activities, and in Vendor Finance. Trade Finance factoring volume of $5.9 billion declined modestly from the first quarter of 2012 and by approximately 4% from the prior-year quarter.

Reported net finance revenue3 continues to be impacted by accelerated interest expense related to the $4.2 billion of high cost debt repaid during the quarter. Average earning assets were $32.3 billion in the second quarter, down $2.2 billion from the year-ago quarter and $0.8 billion from the prior quarter due primarily to student loan sales. Average commercial earning assets were $27.3 billion and rose from both comparative periods. Reported net finance revenue as a percentage of average earning assets (“finance margin”) was 1.05% in the second quarter, compared to 0.70% in the prior-year quarter and a negative amount in the first quarter of 2012 reflecting debt refinancing costs. Excluding net FSA accretion and debt prepayment costs, finance margin was 3.02%, improved from 1.40% in the year-ago quarter and 1.97% in the prior quarter. The increase from the year-ago quarter was driven primarily by lower funding costs, reduction of low yielding assets, higher prepayments and interest recoveries and the benefit from the suspension of depreciation on operating lease equipment held for sale. The sequential quarter improvement was due primarily to improved funding costs, higher interest recoveries and other yield-related fees, and shift to higher yielding assets. Operating lease rental income increased from prior periods and benefitted from higher asset levels and improved railcar utilization.

Other income (excluding operating lease rentals) of $144 million decreased $89 million from the prior-year quarter and $105 million sequentially largely due to reduced gains on assets sold, and higher impairment on assets held for sale. These items more than offset an increase in counterparty receivable accretion in the current period. Factoring commissions of $29 million declined from the prior-year quarter and sequentially reflecting lower factoring volume.

Operating expenses were $240 million, up slightly from the prior-year quarter and up $17 million sequentially. The current period includes approximately $14 million for the establishment of an indemnification reserve related to pre-emergence asset sales that should have been recorded in prior periods largely offset by benefits related to favorable resolutions of tax and legal matters. The increase from prior periods is also attributable to higher employee-related costs. Headcount at June 30, 2012 was approximately 3,570 compared to 3,480 a year ago and 3,530 at March 31, 2012.

The $21 million loss on debt extinguishment in the current quarter reflected accelerated fees related to liability management actions taken during the quarter, which are discussed below in Capital and Funding.

The provision for income taxes in the second quarter was $28 million and predominantly reflects income generated by our international operations. The tax provision increased from the year-ago quarter, primarily driven by an increase in discrete items. Included in the current period is a $16 million reduction to the provision for income taxes associated with the correction of certain foreign tax accruals relating to prior periods, which caused the sequential quarter decline.

Credit and Allowance for Loan Losses

The favorable trends in our credit metrics continued in the second quarter, as net charge-offs and non-accrual loans declined from the prior-year quarter and sequentially.

Net charge-offs were $17 million, or 0.33% as a percentage of average finance receivables, down from $55 million (0.95%) in the year-ago quarter and $22 million (0.44%) in the prior quarter. Net charge-offs in our commercial segments were 0.42% of average finance receivables in the current quarter, improved from 1.38% in the year-ago quarter and 0.56% in the prior quarter. The reduction from the prior-year quarter reflects improvements in Corporate Finance and Vendor Finance, while the sequential quarter decline was almost entirely attributable to Transportation Finance. Net charge-offs do not reflect recoveries of loans charged off pre-emergence and loans charged off prior to transfer to held for sale. Recoveries on these loans are recorded in other income and totaled $19 million, $25 million and $10 million for the current quarter, the prior-year quarter, and the prior quarter, respectively.

The second quarter provision for credit losses was $9 million, compared to $84 million in the year-ago quarter and $43 million in the prior quarter. The declines from both periods reflect the lower charge-offs and a reduction in non-specific reserves in the current quarter.

Non-accrual loans were $455 million, or 2.26% of finance receivables at June 30, 2012, down from $1.1 billion (4.77%) at June 30, 2011 and $482 million (2.35%) at March 31, 2012. Non-accrual loans as a percentage of finance receivables in the commercial segments was 2.80% at June 30, 2012, improved from 6.96% at June 30, 2011 and 3.03% at March 31, 2012 reflecting broad-based improvement across the commercial segments. The sequential quarter improvement was largely attributable to improvements in Corporate Finance, reflecting the repayment and sale of loans, and Vendor Finance.

The allowance for loan losses at June 30, 2012 was $414 million, or 2.06% of finance receivables, and compares to $424 million (1.90%) at June 30, 2011 and $420 million (2.05%) at March 31, 2012. Specific reserves were $54 million at June 30, 2012, versus $73 million a year ago and $45 million last quarter.

Capital and Funding

Preliminary Tier 1 and Total Capital ratios at June 30, 2012 were 18.0% and 18.9%, respectively, improved from 17.6% and 18.5%, respectively, at March 31, 2012. Preliminary risk-weighted assets totaled $44.3 billion at June 30, 2012, compared to $45.5 billion at March 31, 2012. Book value per share at June 30, 2012 was $41.73, compared to $42.09 at March 31, 2012 and $44.61 at June 30, 2011. Tangible book value per share at June 30, 2012 was $39.87, compared to $40.20 at March 31, 2012 and $42.54 at June 30, 2011.

Cash and short-term investment securities totaled $7.0 billion at June 30, 2012, down from both the year-ago and prior quarters, and was comprised of $6.1 billion of cash and $0.9 billion of short-term investments. Cash and short-term investment securities at June 30, 2012 consisted of $1.8 billion related to the bank holding company, $3.0 billion at CIT Bank, $1.2 billion at operating subsidiaries and $1.0 billion in restricted balances. We had approximately $1.4 billion of unused and committed liquidity under a $2 billion revolving credit facility at June 30, 2012.

During the second quarter, we completed several transactions to lower our cost of capital and improve profitability, while also diversifying our sources of funding and making progress towards our long term funding profile. Specifically:

  • We issued $2 billion of senior unsecured debt, which consisted of $1.25 billion of 5.00% notes that mature in 2017 and $750 million of 5.375% notes that mature in 2020, and also issued $753 million of secured debt through a Vendor Finance equipment lease securitization that had a weighted average coupon of 1.45%.
  • CIT Bank raised $1.1 billion of deposits, of which approximately 75% were through internet channels. (See CIT Bank below.)
  • We redeemed at par approximately $4.1 billion of 7% Series C notes and repurchased at a slight discount approximately $140 million of 7% Series C notes. The acceleration of FSA discount accretion related to these redemptions and repurchases increased second quarter 2012 interest expense by approximately $265 million.
  • We closed a $1 billion committed U.S. Vendor Finance conduit facility that allows the U.S. Vendor Finance business to fund both existing assets and new originations within CIT Bank, and renewed a £100 million UK Vendor Finance conduit facility with improved terms.
  • We continued to make progress towards our long term targeted funding mix. At June 30, 2012, deposits represented 23% of our funding, with secured and unsecured borrowings comprising 33% and 44% of the funding mix, respectively.

In July, we completed a C$515 million (US$511 million) Canadian Vendor Finance receivable securitization with a weighted average fixed coupon of 2.285% and announced that we will redeem an additional $600 million of 7% Series C Notes maturing in 2016 on August 20, 2012. The redemption will increase third quarter 2012 interest expense by up to $30 million and may result in a loss on debt extinguishment. After the completion of this redemption, approximately $4.0 billion in aggregate of 7% Series C Notes maturing in 2016 and 2017 will remain outstanding.

The weighted average coupon rate on outstanding deposits and long-term borrowings was 3.83% at June 30, 2012, improved from 4.24% at March 31, 2012 and 5.11% at June 30, 2011. Including the August redemption, the rate would have been 3.77% at June 30, 2012.

Corporate Finance

Excluding accelerated FSA interest expense, pre-tax earnings increased from the prior-year quarter, as lower credit provision, higher finance margin and higher net FSA accretion more than offset lower gains on asset sales. The sequential quarter decline reflects lower gains on asset sales, partially offset by a higher finance margin and lower credit provision. Gains on asset sales totaled $17 million in the current quarter, down from approximately $73 million in the prior-year quarter and $170 million last quarter, which included the completion of the final phases of a previously disclosed loan portfolio sale.

Financing and leasing assets increased more than $250 million from March 31, 2012 to $7.7 billion. New committed loan volume rose 29% from the prior-year quarter to $1.3 billion, while new funded volume increased 41% to $1.0 billion. Current period volumes, both funded and committed, declined sequentially. Approximately 91% of U.S. funded volume this quarter was originated by CIT Bank, improved from 79% in the year-ago quarter.

Credit performance remains strong. Non-accrual loans declined to $316 million from $329 million at March 31, 2012 and net charge-offs were $7 million, down significantly from the prior-year quarter and unchanged from the first quarter of 2012.

Transportation Finance

Excluding accelerated FSA interest expense, pre-tax earnings rose 82% from the prior-year quarter and 60% sequentially reflecting improved finance revenue on higher portfolio assets, and lower funding and credit costs. Equipment utilization remained strong with over 99% of commercial air and 98% of rail equipment on lease or under a commitment at June 30, 2012.

Financing and leasing assets grew approximately $1.6 billion from June 30, 2011, and $0.3 billion from March 31, 2012, to $13.8 billion. New business volume of $640 million reflects the addition of 6 aircraft and over 2,000 railcars in our operating lease portfolio, and over $100 million of loans. All of the current quarter’s loan volume and over 85% of the rail volume was originated by CIT Bank. All remaining 2012 aircraft deliveries have lease commitments.

Trade Finance

Excluding accelerated FSA interest expense, pre-tax earnings increased from the prior-year quarter, primarily due to lower funding costs, and sequentially, due to a net benefit in the provision for credit losses.

Factoring volume was $5.9 billion, down 4% from the prior-year quarter and slightly below last quarter. Factoring commissions of $29 million were down from the prior-year quarter and sequentially. Credit metrics remain strong. Non-accrual balances decreased substantially from a year-ago, primarily due to accounts returning to accrual status and reductions in exposures and rose slightly from March 31, 2012. Net charge-offs remained low at $1.5 million.

Vendor Finance

Excluding accelerated FSA interest expense, pre-tax earnings declined from the prior-year quarter primarily due to lower gains on asset sales and lower net FSA accretion partially offset by improved finance margin and lower credit losses. The sequential quarter increase was attributable to improved finance margin, higher other income and lower credit losses. We continued to make progress on various funding initiatives, as previously described in Capital and Funding, which provide low cost sources of funds for Vendor Finance assets.

Financing and leasing assets of $5.1 billion were up slightly from March 31, 2012 and down approximately $100 million from a year ago as asset sales and the run-off from liquidating portfolios exceeded new business volume. Funded new business volume was $762 million, up approximately 20% from the prior-year quarter and 13% sequentially. Essentially all U.S. funded volume in the current quarter was originated by CIT Bank.

Portfolio credit quality improved from the prior-year quarter and sequentially with declines in non-accrual loans and delinquencies. Net charge-offs of approximately $8 million improved from $17 million in the prior-year quarter, but rose modestly sequentially due in part to lower recoveries.

Consumer Finance

Excluding accelerated FSA interest expense, pre-tax results improved from the prior-year quarter and sequentially. During the current quarter we sold approximately $1.1 billion of student loans at a gain. At June 30, 2012, the student loan portfolio totaled approximately $4.5 billion, which are funded through securitizations, and includes $0.6 billion of student loans in CIT Bank that are classified as Assets Held for Sale.

Corporate and Other

Corporate and other included a $21 million pre-tax loss on debt extinguishments for the quarter and $23 million for the prior quarter. In addition, Corporate and other reflects certain corporate liquidity costs and unallocated interest expense, which included prepayment penalties on high cost debt that totaled $50 million in the prior-year quarter.

CIT Bank

Solid growth in commercial assets reflected increased volume, both from the year-ago period and sequentially, in Corporate Finance, Vendor Finance and Transportation Finance. Committed loan volume rose 63% from the year-ago period and increased 11% from the prior quarter to $1.8 billion, of which nearly $1.5 billion was funded. The sequential quarter increase reflected growth in Corporate Finance activity, including volume from Real Estate and Equipment Finance.

Total assets were $10.0 billion, up from $6.9 billion at June 30, 2011 and $9.6 billion at March 31, 2012. Loans (including held-for-sale) totaled $6.6 billion, up from $5.7 billion at June 30, 2011 and were unchanged from March 31, 2012 as commercial asset growth was offset by the sale and run-off of consumer loans. Commercial loans and leases of $6.3 billion increased from $2.2 billion at June 30, 2011 and $5.1 billion at March 31, 2012. Assets held for sale declined from $1.1 billion at March 31, 2012 to $0.6 billion at June 30, 2012 reflecting the sale of $1.1 billion of student loans during the second quarter and transfer into held for sale of the remaining $0.6 billion of student loans. Cash was $3.0 billion at June 30, 2012, up from $2.6 billion at March 31, 2012 and $0.8 billion at June 30, 2011. CIT Bank’s preliminary Total Capital ratio was 29.8% and the Tier 1 Leverage ratio was 23.3%.

Total deposits were $7.1 billion at June 30, 2012, up from $6.7 billion at March 31, 2012 and $4.4 billion at June 30, 2011. During the second quarter, CIT Bank placed over $1.1 billion of deposits at an average rate of approximately 1.4% and with an average CD term of over three years that replaced maturing deposits at higher rates (go to BankOnCIT.com for more information).
