"Fifth Third reported solid third quarter results, reflecting our continued focus on revenue generation as well as expense discipline," said Kevin T. Kabat, Vice Chairman and CEO of Fifth Third Bancorp. "Return on average assets was 1.4 percent and return on average tangible common equity* was 14.7 percent for the quarter including Vantiv-related gains, and were 1.2 percent and 12.6 percent, respectively, excluding them.

"Highlights from the quarter include an increase in net interest income of 2 percent and continued balance sheet strength. Period end loans in the portfolio reached the highest level in the company's history, despite significant borrower caution. Core deposits grew 2 percent over last quarter, reflecting higher deposits in nearly all of our key markets as recent annual FDIC market share data also shows. Lower fee income reflected lower Vantiv-related gains and the impact of significantly higher mortgage rates and resultant effects on that business, as well as the comparison to a very strong second quarter. On a year-over-year basis, fee income performance was driven by deposit service charges, investment advisory revenue, and card and processing revenue.

"Credit trends continued to improve as net charge-offs declined below 50 basis points of average loans and leases for the first time in 6 years, and we saw continued improvement in nearly every key credit metric.

"We recently completed our outstanding repurchase agreement for $539 million of common shares. We have approximately $600 million of repurchase capacity remaining under our current CCAR plan extending through March 31, 2014, excluding any potential gains from Vantiv share sales in the future. Our capital position under the Basel III rules would remain strong with an estimated pro forma Tier 1 common equity ratio* of 9.5 percent under the new final capital rules compared with 9.9 percent under current capital rules."
