    We remain focused on building our franchise as we put our knowledge to work on behalf of our clients, who remain the heart of the U.S. economy.

    NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--CIT Group Inc. (NYSE:CIT), a leading provider of financing and advisory services to small businesses and middle market companies, today reported net income of $200 million, $0.99 per diluted share, for the third quarter of 2013, compared to a net loss of $299 million, $1.49 per diluted share, for the third quarter of 2012. Net income for the nine month period ended September 30, 2013 was $546 million, $2.70 per diluted share, compared to a net loss of $799 million, $3.98 per diluted share in the prior year. Prior year results include significant debt redemption charges1.

    “Our third quarter results reflect our progress in prudently growing assets, expanding CIT Bank, and returning capital to our shareholders,” said John Thain, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. “We remain focused on building our franchise as we put our knowledge to work on behalf of our clients, who remain the heart of the U.S. economy.”

    Summary of Third Quarter Financial Results

    Third quarter results reflect growth in earning assets, aided by higher levels of new business activity, and continued strong credit metrics. In addition to the absence of debt redemption charges in the current quarter, the improvement in net income from the year-ago quarter reflected commercial asset growth, higher fee and other income and lower funding costs partially offset by lower net FSA accretion.

    Total assets at September 30, 2013 were $46.2 billion, up $1.6 billion from June 30, 2013 and $2.6 billion from September 30, 2012. Commercial financing and leasing assets increased from prior periods to $32.1 billion driven by growth in Corporate Finance. Consumer assets declined by approximately $70 million from June 30, 2013 to $3.5 billion, reflecting the continued run off of student loans, and by $840 million from a year ago, which also reflects the sale of $0.5 billion of student loans in the fourth quarter of 2012. Total loans of $21.8 billion rose slightly from the prior quarter and increased $1.4 billion from a year ago. Operating lease equipment increased $0.3 billion from June 30, 2013 and $0.5 billion from a year ago to $12.6 billion. Cash and investments of $8.5 billion were up $1.2 billion from June 30, 2013 and $1.0 billion from September 30, 2012.

    Net finance revenue2 was $357 million compared to $(129) million in the year-ago quarter, which included approximately $454 million of debt redemption costs, and $381 million in the prior quarter. Average earning assets were $33.9 billion in the current quarter, up from $32.3 billion from the year-ago quarter and $33.7 billion in the prior quarter. Net finance revenue as a percentage of average earning assets (“finance margin”) was 4.22%, compared to (1.60)% in the year-ago quarter and 4.53% in the prior quarter. Excluding the impact of debt redemptions3 in prior periods, finance margin improved from 4.02% in the year-ago quarter, primarily reflecting lower funding costs, and declined from 4.62% in the prior quarter reflecting the sale of higher yielding Vendor Finance assets in addition to a decline in operating lease revenue, net FSA accretion, and yield-related fees.

    Other income of $105 million increased from $87 million in the year-ago quarter and from $79 million in the prior quarter. The increase is attributable to higher gains on asset sales and other revenue, including gains related to the sale of Vendor Finance and Transportation assets, that was partially offset by impairments on assets transferred to held for sale in conjunction with our international rationalization efforts. Three notable components of other income – factoring commissions, gains on sales of leasing equipment, and fee revenues – totaled $88 million, or 1.04% of average earnings assets, up in aggregate $2 million from the year-ago quarter and down $2 million sequentially.

    Operating expenses were $232 million compared to $235 million in the year-ago quarter and $230 million in the prior quarter. Excluding restructuring costs4, operating expenses were $229 million, compared to $230 million in the year-ago quarter and $220 million in the prior quarter. The current period includes costs related to certain legal matters and our international rationalization efforts, while the prior quarter included a benefit in professional fees from a workout-related settlement. Headcount at September 30, 2013 was approximately 3,380, down from 3,630 a year ago and 3,420 at June 30, 2013.

    The provision for income taxes in the third quarter was $14 million, which primarily reflected the recognition of tax expense on international earnings and state tax expense in the U.S. The $4 million provision for taxes in the year-ago quarter resulted from changes in the geographic mix of earnings. The $32 million provision in the prior quarter included over $20 million related to the establishment of valuation allowances on certain international deferred tax assets due to our international platform rationalizations.

    Credit and Allowance for Loan Losses

    Credit quality metrics remained stable at cyclical lows. As in the prior quarter, charge-offs were elevated by amounts related to the transfer of loans to assets held for sale.

    Net charge-offs were $27 million, or 0.50% as a percentage of average finance receivables, versus $18 million (0.36%) in the year-ago quarter and $29 million (0.53%) in the prior quarter. Net charge-offs in the commercial segments were 0.59% of average finance receivables, compared to 0.44% in the year-ago quarter and 0.63% in the prior quarter. Recoveries of $9 million were lower than in recent quarters. Net charge-offs were negligible in Transportation Finance, and Trade Finance had net recoveries for the quarter and year-to-date. Charge-offs in Corporate Finance and Vendor Finance included $5 million and $7 million, respectively, related to transfers of loans to assets held for sale, while the prior quarter included $20 million of such charge-offs in Corporate 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 $6 million, $9 million and $6 million for the current quarter, the year-ago quarter and the prior quarter, respectively.

    Non-accrual loans declined to $258 million, or 1.18% of finance receivables, at September 30, 2013 from $412 million (2.02%) at September 30, 2012 and $279 million (1.28%) at June 30, 2013. Non-accrual loans as a percentage of finance receivables in the commercial segments were 1.41% at September 30, 2013, improved from 2.48% at September 30, 2012 and 1.53% at June 30, 2013. The improvement from last quarter was driven by Corporate Finance and Transportation Finance.

    The provision for credit losses was $16 million in the current quarter, up modestly from $15 million in the prior quarter; there was essentially no provision for credit losses in the year-ago quarter. The allowance for loan losses, which relates entirely to the commercial portfolio, was $356 million at September 30, 2013, or 1.63% of total finance receivables (including U.S. government guaranteed student loans that have no related reserves), compared to $398 million (1.95%) at September 30, 2012 and $367 million (1.69%) at June 30, 2013. As a percentage of the commercial portfolio, the allowance for loan losses was 1.94% at September 30, 2013, compared to 2.39% at September 30, 2012 and 2.02% at June 30, 2013. The trends in the allowance for loan losses are consistent with the stable credit metrics and changes in the composition of the portfolio. Specific reserves were $34 million at September 30, 2013, compared to $56 million at September 30, 2012 and $43 million at June 30, 2013.

    Capital and Funding

    Preliminary Tier 1 and Total Capital ratios at September 30, 2013 were 16.7% and 17.4%, respectively, compared to 16.3% and 17.0% at June 30, 2013. Preliminary risk-weighted assets totaled $50.5 billion at September 30, 2013, relatively unchanged from June 30, 2013 and up from $45.9 billion at September 30, 2012, primarily reflecting growth in assets and finance and lease commitments. Book value per share at September 30, 2013 grew to $44.16 from $43.16 at June 30, 2013 and $40.37 at September 30, 2012. Tangible book value per share at September 30, 2013 was $42.36, improved from $41.33 at June 30, 2013 and $38.47 at September 30, 2012.

    Cash and short-term investment securities totaled $7.4 billion at September 30, 2013, comprised of $6.0 billion of cash and $1.4 billion of short-term investments, compared to $6.9 billion at June 30, 2013 and $7.2 billion at September 30, 2012. Cash and short-term investment securities at September 30, 2013 consisted of $2.7 billion related to the bank holding company and $2.5 billion at CIT Bank, with the remainder comprised of cash at operating subsidiaries and restricted balances. We had approximately $1.9 billion of unused and committed liquidity under a $2 billion revolving credit facility at September 30, 2013.

    Deposits grew approximately $0.6 billion during the quarter to $11.8 billion, consistent with asset growth and the overall liquidity position of CIT Bank. At September 30, 2013, deposits represented approximately 35% of our funding, with secured and unsecured borrowings comprising 27% and 38% of the funding mix, respectively. The weighted average coupon rate on outstanding deposits and long-term borrowings was 3.09% at September 30, 2013, unchanged from June 30, 2013 and improved from 3.25% at September 30, 2012.

    On August 1, 2013, CIT issued $750 million aggregate principal amount of senior unsecured notes due 2023. We invested the proceeds from this offering in highly-rated securities that are classified as held to maturity and not included in short-term investment securities. We also renewed a $500 million committed secured facility and extended the revolving period one year to September 2015.

    Last quarter our Board of Directors approved the repurchase of up to $200 million of common stock through December 31, 2013. During the third quarter we repurchased over 800,000 shares at an average price of $48.40. Since May 30, 2013, we have repurchased approximately 1.1 million shares at an average price of $47.36 per share. In addition, on October 21, 2013, the Board of Directors declared a quarterly cash dividend of $0.10 per share.

    Segment Highlights

    As detailed on the table on page 16, prior periods were impacted by accelerated FSA net discount/(premium) on debt extinguishments and repurchases and loss on debt extinguishments. The segment commentary that follows is focused on prior period results excluding these impacts.

    Corporate Finance

    Pre-tax earnings for the quarter were $37 million, down from $46 million in the year-ago quarter, due to higher credit provision, and from $43 million in the prior quarter reflecting lower levels of accelerated yield-related fees in the current period and the benefit of a workout-related settlement in the prior quarter.

    Financing and leasing assets grew to $9.8 billion, up $0.4 billion from June 30, 2013, reflecting solid new business volumes, and up $1.9 billion from September 30, 2012, which also reflects a portfolio purchased during the first quarter of 2013. Funded loan volume, which includes a balanced mix of asset-secured and cash flow loans, totaled $1.1 billion, up from $0.9 billion in the year-ago quarter and down from $1.3 billion in the prior quarter. During the quarter, approximately $108 million of loans were transferred to assets held for sale, which totaled $490 million at quarter-end. In October, we entered into a definitive agreement to sell our small business lending portfolio, which represented the majority of assets held for sale at quarter-end. The sale is expected to be completed in the first quarter of 2014 subject to approval by the Small Business Administration.

    Credit performance remained strong. Non-accrual loans declined to $155 million (1.68% of finance receivables) from $256 million (3.28%) a year ago and $173 million (1.95%) at June 30, 2013. Net charge-offs were $9 million (0.39% of average finance receivables), compared to $5 million (0.26%) in the prior-year quarter and $22 million (0.97%) last quarter, nearly all of which was attributable to loans transferred to assets held for sale.

    Transportation Finance

    Pre-tax earnings for the quarter were $161 million, up from $135 million in the year-ago quarter reflecting lower interest expense and higher other income, and down from $169 million in the prior quarter due to lower rental income in commercial air partially offset by higher other income. Other income in the current quarter included a $13 million gain on the sale of a workout-related claim. Utilization remained strong with all owned commercial airplanes and 98% of rail equipment on lease or under a commitment at quarter-end.

    Financing and leasing assets totaled $14.3 billion at September 30, 2013, up slightly sequentially and $0.3 billion from a year ago. During the quarter we sold six aircraft for a gain and took delivery of five new aircraft and approximately 1,500 railcars.

    During the quarter we agreed to purchase 13 new Airbus aircraft that are conditional upon lease to American Airlines with delivery dates through 2014, and exercised cancellation rights on 13 Embraer aircraft previously scheduled for delivery in 2015. All but two aircraft scheduled for delivery in the next twelve months, and approximately 75% of all railcars on order, have lease commitments. A higher than usual number of aircraft will be subject to lease renewals in 2014, which could put pressure on the finance margin.

    Trade Finance

    Pre-tax earnings for the quarter were $17 million, compared to $13 million in the year-ago quarter, and $14 million in the prior quarter. Factoring volume was $6.6 billion, up 4% from the year-ago quarter, and 11% sequentially reflecting normal seasonality. Factoring commissions of $32.3 million were down slightly from the year-ago period and up 11% from the prior quarter.

    Credit metrics remained favorable. Non-accrual balances of $7 million declined from $27 million a year ago, primarily due to accounts returning to accrual status and reductions in exposures, and rose from $3 million at June 30, 2013 primarily due to one additional loan classified as non-accrual. There was a net recovery of $1 million in the current quarter and modest recoveries in each of the year-ago and prior quarters.

    Vendor Finance

    Pre-tax earnings for the quarter were $8 million, which continued to be impacted by our international platform rationalization efforts, compared to $12 million in the year-ago period and $6 million in the prior quarter. The decline from the year-ago quarter reflects higher credit costs and lower net FSA accretion, which more than offset $5 million of net gains in the current quarter. Income related to the Dell Europe portfolio, including a $21 million gain on the sale of the first tranche, was largely offset by impairments on assets transferred to assets held for sale. Other income in the prior quarter included $6 million of costs related to international platform rationalizations. The sequential quarter comparison also reflected a reduction in net finance income related to the Dell Europe asset sale as those assets had high yields and the operating lease component had no associated depreciation expense.

    Financing and leasing assets declined modestly from June 30, 2013 to $5.6 billion and rose 7% from a year ago. Approximately $200 million of the Dell Europe portfolio was sold during the third quarter and the remainder, about $300 million, was sold on October 1, 2013. Assets held for sale increased to $555 million, primarily reflecting the transfer of assets in several European countries. We funded $761 million of new business volume in the quarter, an increase of 8% from the year-ago quarter, but down 10% from the prior quarter reflecting seasonality.

    Credit metrics were also impacted by the platform rationalization efforts. Net charge-offs of $19 million included $7 million of charge-offs related to loans transferred to assets held for sale as well as lower recoveries. Absent these transfers, net charge-offs were generally stable from both the year-ago and prior quarters. Non-accrual loans were $96 million (1.98% of finance receivables) at quarter-end, compared to $74 million (1.59%) a year ago and $90 million (1.82%) at June 30, 2013.

    Consumer

    Pre-tax earnings for the quarter were $5 million, unchanged from the year-ago quarter and down from $9 million in the prior quarter.

    At September 30, 2013, the student loan portfolio totaled approximately $3.5 billion, down slightly from June 30, 2013 and from $4.3 billion at September 30, 2012. The decline from a year ago is primarily due to $525 million of loan sales and runoff.

    Corporate and Other

    Certain items are not allocated to operating segments and are included in Corporate and Other, including unallocated interest expense, primarily related to corporate liquidity costs, accelerated FSA discount accretion and restructuring charges. There was essentially no unallocated accelerated debt FSA discount accretion in the current quarter and prior quarter, while the year-ago quarter included $68 million. The year-ago quarter also included a loss on debt extinguishments of $17 million. Operating expenses included restructuring charges of $3 million in the current quarter, compared to $5 million in the year-ago quarter and $10 million in the prior quarter.

    CIT Bank

    Lending and leasing assets grew 8% during the quarter to $12 billion. CIT Bank funded $1.7 billion of new business volume, which represented nearly all of the new U.S. volume for Corporate Finance, Transportation Finance and Vendor Finance. Funded volumes were up 20% from the year-ago quarter and down 10% sequentially due to seasonality.

    Total assets were $14.7 billion at September 30, 2013, up $0.8 billion from June 30, 2013 and $3.1 billion from a year ago. Commercial loans totaled $10.9 billion, up from $10.2 billion at June 30, 2013 and $6.8 billion at September 30, 2012. Operating lease equipment of $1.1 billion, primarily railcars, increased from $0.9 billion at June 30, 2013 and $0.5 billion at September 30, 2012. Cash totaled $2.5 billion at September 30, 2013, down slightly from June 30, 2013, and from $3.6 billion at September 30, 2012. Preliminary Total Capital and Tier 1 Leverage ratios were 19.8% and 17.9%, respectively, at September 30, 2013.

    Total deposits at quarter-end were $11.8 billion, up from $11.1 billion at June 30, 2013 and $8.6 billion at September 30, 2012. The weighted average rate on outstanding deposits was 1.49% at September 30, 2013.
