Brunswick Business Journal Staff Report

July 29, 2016 – BB&T has reported consolidated net income available to common shareholders for the second quarter of 2016 of $541 million, an increase of $87 million compared to the same quarter of 2015.

On April 1, 2016, BB&T acquired National Penn for total consideration of $1.6 billion, which consisted of approximately $555 million in cash and the remainder in stock. National Penn had 126 financial centers, $10.1 billion of total assets and $6.6 billion of deposits. Also on April 1, 2016, BB&T purchased insurance broker CGSC North America Holdings Corporation ("Swett & Crawford") from Cooper Gay Swett & Crawford for $465 million in cash.

Total revenues on a FTE basis were $2.8 billion for the second quarter of 2016, an increase of $420 million compared to the same period in 2015 largely the result of acquisition activity.

Net interest margin was 3.41%, compared to 3.27% for the second quarter of 2015.

The bank holding company’s average earning assets increased $29.4 billion, or 17.8%, while average interest-bearing liabilities increased $21.7 billion, or 18.7%, both of which were primarily driven by acquisitions.

The annualized yield on the total loan portfolio for the second quarter was 4.31%, up 13 basis points compared to the earlier quarter, which was also primarily due to acquisitions. The annualized fully taxable-equivalent yield on the average securities portfolio for the second quarter was 2.47%, up six basis points compared to the earlier quarter primarily due to securities duration adjustments.

Noninterest income was up $111 million compared to the second quarter of 2015, which reflects higher insurance income due to the Swett & Crawford acquisition and an increase in other income due to the loss on sale of American Coastal recorded in the earlier period.

Earlier this week, BB&T's Board of Directors approved an increase in the quarterly dividend of $0.02 to $0.30 and authorized cumulative share buybacks of up to $640 million beginning during the third quarter of 2016. These capital actions were consistent with BB&T's capital plan.
