We had a solid second quarter and made good progress strengthening our franchise

NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--CIT Group Inc. (NYSE:CIT), a leading provider of commercial lending and leasing services, today reported net income of $247 million, $1.29 per diluted share, for the second quarter of 2014, compared to net income of $184 million, $0.91 per diluted share, for the year-ago quarter. During the quarter, we completed the sale of the $3.3 billion Student Loan portfolio along with certain secured debt and servicing rights, generating income of $52 million net of taxes. As a result of the sale, the financial results of the Student Lending business are reported as a discontinued operation for all periods presented. Income from continuing operations for the second quarter was $195 million, $1.02 per diluted share compared to $176 million, $0.87 per diluted share, for the year-ago quarter.

Net Income for the six month period ended June 30, 2014 was $364 million, $1.88 per diluted share, compared to $346 million, $1.71 per diluted share, for the period ended June 30, 2013. Income from continuing operations for the six month period ended June 30, 2014 was $310 million, $1.60 per diluted share, compared to $329 million, $1.62 per diluted share for the period ended June 30, 2013.

“We had a solid second quarter and made good progress strengthening our franchise,” said John Thain, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. “We grew our commercial assets by 3%, repurchased 9.4 million common shares and announced the acquisition of Direct Capital Corporation while completing the sale of certain non-strategic portfolios. We continue to focus on building long-term value by growing our earning assets, expanding CIT Bank, achieving our profitability targets and returning capital to our shareholders.”

Summary of Second Quarter Financial Results from Continuing Operations

All references in this section relate to continuing operations and therefore do not include any of the assets or results of operations of the discontinued operation.

Second quarter results reflect growth in earning assets and a further shift to deposit funding. Additionally, net income reflected benefits from loan prepayments, lower credit costs as well as the restructuring of two aircraft securitizations in our TRS facility that positively impacted interest expense and other income.

Total assets from continuing operations1 at June 30, 2014 were $44.2 billion, down from $44.9 billion at March 31, 2014, reflecting the use of cash to repay the $1.3 billion debt maturity on April 1, 2014, and up from $40.7 billion at June 30, 2013. Financing and leasing assets in North American Commercial Finance and Transportation & International Finance increased to $34.1 billion, an increase of $1.3 billion (4%) from March 31, 2014 and $4.3 billion (15%) from a year ago. The sequential quarter increase was driven by solid origination volumes while the increase from the year-ago quarter also included the acquisition of Nacco in the first quarter of 2014, which added approximately $0.65 billion of financing and leasing assets. The Non-Strategic Portfolios declined by approximately $0.5 billion from March 31, 2014, and by $1.3 billion from a year ago, to $0.7 billion, reflecting portfolio run off and asset sales including the completion of the sale of the Small Business Lending portfolio in June 2014. Total loans of $18.6 billion increased slightly from March 31, 2014 and by $0.4 billion from a year ago, reflecting new loan originations partially offset by asset sales. Operating lease equipment increased $0.6 billion from March 31, 2014 and $2.5 billion from a year ago to $14.8 billion, reflecting the Nacco acquisition and other equipment purchases. Cash and investments of $7.3 billion were down $1.7 billion from March 31, 2014 and were relatively flat from June 30, 2013.

Net finance revenue2 was $361 million compared to $367 million in the year-ago quarter and $322 million in the prior quarter. Average earning assets were $33.2 billion in the current quarter, up from $30.1 billion in the year-ago quarter and $32.1 billion in the prior quarter. Net finance revenue as a percentage of average earning assets (“net finance margin”) was 4.35%, compared to 4.87% in the year-ago quarter and 4.01% in the prior quarter. Excluding the impact of debt redemptions3, net finance margin was 4.26% compared to 4.97% in the year-ago quarter and 4.01% in the prior quarter. The reduction from the year-ago quarter primarily reflects portfolio re-pricing, the sale of higher-yielding Dell Europe assets, and declines in net FSA accretion. The increase from the prior quarter reflects lower funding costs, a reduction in maintenance and other operating lease expenses, and higher interest recoveries.

Other income of $94 million increased from $79 million in the year-ago quarter and from $71 million in the prior quarter. The current quarter includes an acceleration of counterparty receivable accretion of $9 million related to the aircraft securitization restructuring as well as a positive mark to market on the TRS derivative of $11 million.

Operating expenses were $225 million compared to $226 million in the year-ago quarter and $234 million in the prior quarter. Excluding restructuring costs4, operating expenses were $219 million, relatively flat to $217 million in the year-ago quarter and down from $224 million in the prior quarter. The decline from the prior quarter is primarily due to lower employee costs while the year-ago quarter also included lower deposit related costs and a benefit in professional fees. Headcount at June 30, 2014 was approximately 3,170, down from approximately 3,420 a year ago and approximately 3,200 at March 31, 2014.

The provision for income taxes was $18 million, primarily reflecting the recognition of income tax expense on international earnings, down from $29 million in the year-ago quarter and up from $14 million in the prior quarter. The year-ago quarter included over $20 million related to the establishment of valuation allowances on certain international deferred tax assets.

Credit and Allowance for Loan Losses

Credit metrics remain at or near cycle lows. Non-accrual loans declined to $190 million, or 1.02% of finance receivables, at June 30, 2014 from $218 million (1.18%) at March 31, 2014 and $279 million (1.53%) at June 30, 2013, reflecting the sale of the Small Business Lending portfolio.

Net charge-offs were $21 million, or 0.45% of average finance receivables (AFR), versus $29 million (0.63%) in the year-ago quarter and $36 million (0.76%) in the prior quarter. Recoveries of $8 million were lower than the $19 million recorded in the year-ago quarter and essentially flat with the prior quarter. Net charge-offs in Transportation & International Finance of $13 million, 1.48% of AFR, include $9 million related to the transfer of receivables to Assets Held for Sale. Transportation & International Finance net charge-offs were a $1 million (0.12%) net recovery a year-ago and $13 million (1.47%) in the prior quarter. Net charge-offs in North American Commercial Finance were $9 million, (0.23%), up from $4 million (0.12%) a year-ago and below $16 million (0.43%) in the prior quarter. Non-Strategic Portfolios had a net recovery of $1 million, compared to a net charge-off of $26 million in the year-ago quarter and $7 million in the prior quarter, as both prior periods were impacted by the transfer of receivables to Assets Held for Sale. The provision for credit losses was $10 million, down from $15 million in the year-ago quarter and $37 million in the prior quarter reflecting lower net charge-offs and lower reserve build due to portfolio composition.

The allowance for loan losses was $341 million (1.83% of finance receivables) at June 30, 2014, compared to $353 million (1.90%) at March 31, 2014 and $367 million (2.02%) at June 30, 2013. Specific reserves were $22 million at June 30, 2014, compared to $26 million at March 31, 2014 and $43 million at June 30, 2013 with the reduction being a result of a combination of charge-offs and loan repayments.

Capital and Funding

Preliminary Tier 1 and Total Capital ratios at June 30, 2014 were 16.0% and 16.7%, respectively, compared to 16.3% and 17.0% at June 30, 2013 and down slightly from March 31, 2014. Preliminary risk-weighted assets totaled $51.0 billion at June 30, 2014, down from $51.8 billion at March 31, 2014 and up slightly from $50.7 billion at June 30, 2013, reflecting the sale of Student Loans and Small Business Lending in the current quarter. Book value per share at June 30, 2014 grew to $46.42 from $45.10 at March 31, 2014 and $43.16 at June 30, 2013. Tangible book value per share5 at June 30, 2014 increased to $44.16, from $42.94 at June 30, 2013 and $41.33 at June 30, 2013.

Cash and short-term investment securities totaled $6.8 billion at June 30, 2014, and were comprised of $6.4 billion of cash and $0.4 billion of short-term investment securities, compared to $8.5 billion at March 31, 2014 and $6.8 billion at June 30, 2013. Cash and short-term investment securities at June 30, 2014 consisted of $1.8 billion related to the bank holding company and $2.8 billion at CIT Bank, with the remainder comprised of cash at operating subsidiaries and restricted balances. CIT had approximately $1.4 billion of unused and committed liquidity under a $1.5 billion revolving credit facility at June 30, 2014.

Deposits grew approximately $0.7 billion during the quarter to $13.9 billion, in line with the asset growth at CIT Bank. At June 30, 2014, deposits represented approximately 44% of CIT Group funding, with unsecured and secured borrowings comprising 39% and 17% of the funding mix, respectively. The change in the funding mix from the prior quarter reflects the extinguishment of secured borrowings associated with the sale of the Student Lending business and the repayment of $1.3 billion of unsecured debt. The weighted average coupon rate on outstanding deposits and long-term borrowings in continuing operations was 3.20% at June 30, 2014, compared to 3.39% at June 30, 2013 and 3.33% at March 31, 2014.

During the quarter, CIT Bank drew down $125 million from a facility with the Federal Home Loan Bank (FHLB) Seattle to fund commercial real estate transactions and renewed and extended an existing $1 billion equipment finance conduit facility. Additionally, CIT Group restructured two aircraft securitizations financed through the TRS.

During the second quarter, we repurchased over 9.4 million shares for an aggregate purchase price of $416 million, bringing the total repurchases for 2014 to approximately 12.3 million shares at an average price of $44.81, or an aggregate of approximately $552 million. Approximately $55 million of the $607 million authorized repurchase capacity remains. On July 15, 2014, the Board approved an increase to CIT’s quarterly cash dividend from $0.10 per share to $0.15 per share. The dividend is payable on August 29, 2014 to shareholders of record on August 15, 2014.

Discontinued Operation

On April 25, 2014, we completed the sale of our Student Loan portfolio along with certain secured debt and servicing rights. As a result, the Student Lending business is reported as a discontinued operation for all periods presented. Income from discontinued operation, net of taxes, was $52 million, reflecting the benefit of proceeds received in excess of the net carrying value of assets and liabilities sold, up from $8 million in the year-ago quarter and $2 million in the prior quarter.

Segment Highlights

Transportation & International Finance

Pre-tax earnings for the quarter were $148 million, down from $158 million in the year-ago quarter and up from $118 million sequentially. Pre-tax earnings this quarter included $7 million net benefit in interest expense due to the refinancing of secured debt within the TRS, while the year-ago quarter included $5 million of debt redemption charges. Excluding these items, pre-tax earnings declined $21 million from the prior year primarily due to lower gains on sale and increased $23 million sequentially reflecting increased net finance revenue, decreased credit costs and lower operating expenses.

Financing and leasing assets grew to $18.4 billion at June 30, 2014, up sequentially from $17.6 billion and from $15.4 billion a year ago. The sequential increase reflected growth in all divisions except International Finance with Aerospace accounting for approximately 80% of the growth. The $3.0 billion, or 19%, increase from June 2013 included $1.4 billion of growth in Rail, including the European rail acquisition in the 2014 first quarter, $1.2 billion in Aerospace, and $0.3 billion in Maritime. Assets Held for Sale increased to $0.7 billion largely due to the addition of $0.5 billion of loans from our International Finance division. New business volume was $1.4 billion and consisted of $0.9 billion of lease equipment, including the delivery of 13 aircraft and approximately 2,500 railcars, and the funding of $0.5 billion of finance receivables.

Net finance revenue was $222 million, up from the year-ago quarter and sequentially, due primarily to asset growth. Net finance margin was 4.91% compared to 5.12% in the year-ago quarter and 4.73% in the prior quarter. Excluding the impact from debt redemptions, margin was 4.75%, down from the year-ago quarter reflecting lower net rental yields in air and flat sequentially as lower maintenance and operating lease expense offset reduced loan prepayment benefits. Other income was $10 million, down from the year-ago quarter and up sequentially largely reflecting changes in gains on asset sales.

Provision for credit losses was $8 million, up from the year-ago quarter and down sequentially reflecting fluctuations in the international portfolio. Credit metrics in the current quarter includes $9 million of reserves charged-off against the International Finance assets transferred to Assets Held for Sale.

Operating expenses were $76 million, up from a year ago reflecting the European rail acquisition and our continued investment in growth initiatives. Operating expenses were down sequentially reflecting lower legal and employee costs.

Utilization remained strong with all but one commercial aircraft and over 98% of rail equipment on lease or under a commitment at quarter-end. All but one aircraft scheduled for delivery in the next 12 months, and approximately 87% of all railcars on order, have lease commitments. Gross yields in Aerospace were 12.2%, down sequentially reflecting reduced prepayment benefits in the loan portfolio and lease re-pricings, while gross yields in Rail declined slightly to 14.4% due in part to holding the European rail portfolio for the full quarter.

North American Commercial Finance

Pre-tax earnings for the quarter were $93 million, improved from $87 million in the year-ago quarter and from $43 million in the prior quarter. The improvement from the year-ago quarter was largely attributable to lower credit costs and higher non-spread revenue, while the sequential quarter increase also reflected a prepayment benefit.

Financing and leasing assets grew to $15.7 billion, up from $15.2 billion at March 31, 2014 and from $14.3 billion at June 30, 2013, reflecting solid new business volumes. Funded loan and lease volume totaled $1.6 billion, down from $1.7 billion in the year-ago quarter, and up from $1.4 billion in the prior quarter, in line with typical seasonal trends. The decrease in volume from the year-ago quarter reflected modest declines in Corporate Finance and Real Estate Finance partially offset by an increase in Equipment Finance. The sequential improvement in volume was across all divisions.

Net finance revenue of $146 million was essentially unchanged from the year-ago quarter and improved from the prior quarter. Net finance margin was 4.13% compared to 4.53% in the year-ago quarter and 3.64% in the prior quarter. The decline in net finance margin from the year-ago quarter primarily reflects lower portfolio yields in Corporate Finance and Equipment Finance and lower benefits from net FSA accretion. The sequential quarter improvement is largely due to the benefits of a prepayment in the current quarter. Other income was $70 million, compared to $65 million in the year-ago quarter and $62 million in the prior quarter, and included benefits from both investment gains and counterparty receivable accretion. Operating expenses were $120 million, up from $118 million in the year-ago quarter, which benefited from a litigation settlement, and improved slightly from $122 million in the prior quarter.

Credit metrics remained at or near cycle lows. Non-accrual loans of $132 million (0.86% of finance receivables) were essentially unchanged from March 31, 2014, and improved from $178 million (1.27%) a year ago. The current quarter provision for credit losses reflects primarily lower charge-offs, largely in Corporate Finance, and lower reserve build due to portfolio composition. Net charge-offs were $9 million (0.23% of average finance receivables), compared to $4 million (0.12%) in the year-ago quarter and $16 million (0.43%) in the prior quarter, and include a lower level of recoveries than in the comparable periods.

Non-Strategic Portfolios

Pre-tax losses for the quarter were $10 million, compared to pre-tax losses of $20 million in the year-ago quarter and $8 million in the prior quarter. Net finance revenue declined from prior periods due to the continued reduction in asset levels. The results compared to the year-ago quarter were also impacted by higher other income and lower credit costs and operating expenses, whereas the sequential impact from these items was minimal.

Financing and leasing assets declined to $0.7 billion at June 30, 2014. Financing and leasing assets were down from $1.1 billion at March 31, 2014, primarily due to the sale of the Small Business Lending portfolio, and from $2.0 billion at June 30, 2013, also reflecting international portfolio 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, restructuring charges, certain legal costs and indirect costs associated with the former Student Lending business that are not recorded in discontinued operation. Operating expenses included restructuring charges of $6 million in the current quarter, compared to approximately $10 million each in the year-ago and prior quarters.

CIT Bank

Total assets were $18.3 billion at June 30, 2014, up from $16.8 billion at March 31, 2014 and $13.9 billion at June 30, 2013. CIT Bank funded $2.0 billion of new business volume, up 11% from the year-ago quarter and up 23% sequentially. Loans totaled $13.4 billion, up from $12.6 billion at March 31, 2014 and $10.2 billion at June 30, 2013. Operating lease equipment of $1.8 billion, primarily railcars and now four aircraft, increased from $1.5 billion at March 31, 2014 and $0.9 billion at June 30, 2013. Cash totaled $2.8 billion at June 30, 2014, up from $2.4 billion at March 31, 2014, and from $2.5 billion at June 30, 2013. Preliminary Tier 1 and Total Capital ratios were 15.2% and 16.5%, respectively, at June 30, 2014.

Deposits at quarter-end were $13.9 billion, up from $13.1 billion at March 31, 2014 and $11.1 billion at June 30, 2013. Online retail deposits surpassed $7.0 billion. The weighted average rate on outstanding deposits was 1.6% at June 30, 2014.
