TCF Financial Corporation ("TCF" or the "Company") (NYSE: TCF) today reported net income of $60.4 million for the second quarter of 2017, compared with $57.7 million for the second quarter of 2016 and $46.3 million for the first quarter of 2017. Diluted earnings per common share was 33 cents for the second quarter of 2017, compared with 31 cents for the second quarter of 2016 and 25 cents for the first quarter of 2017.

"TCF reported solid second quarter results driven by strong revenue and balance sheet growth and stable credit quality," said Craig R. Dahl, chairman and chief executive officer. "TCF’s strong growth in net interest income was a key driver in creating a more stable source of revenue. We were able to generate margin expansion on both a linked quarter and year-over-year basis primarily due to our asset sensitive balance sheet. In addition, a strong quarter of leasing and equipment finance revenue continues to demonstrate the strength of our diversified model. We also continue to make important investments to enhance our technology capabilities and drive efficiencies.

"TCF’s auto finance business is performing as expected following the announced strategic shift last quarter. During the first full quarter of implementation, the auto finance business saw reduced loan originations, increased held for investment loan yield and risk-adjusted yield, reduced reliance on gain on sale revenue and a more efficient operating structure. As the transition continues, credit performance remains within our expectations and the business remains on track to support the organization’s focus on driving profitable growth and increasing operating leverage moving forward."

Net Interest Income

  • Net interest income for the second quarter of 2017 increased $14.2 million, or 6.7 percent, from the second quarter of 2016 and increased $5.0 million, or 2.3 percent, from the first quarter of 2017. The increases in net interest income were primarily due to increases in interest income on loans and leases, partially offset by decreases in interest income on loans held for sale.
  • Total interest income increased $14.5 million, or 6.2 percent, from the second quarter of 2016 and increased $6.2 million, or 2.6 percent, from the first quarter of 2017, primarily due to increased average yields on the variable-rate inventory finance loans, variable- and adjustable-rate consumer real estate and commercial loans and fixed-rate auto finance loans. In addition, the increase from the second quarter of 2016 was due to higher average balances in the commercial, leasing and equipment finance and inventory finance portfolios, partially offset by a lower average balance in the consumer real estate portfolio.
  • Net interest margin for the second quarter of 2017 was 4.52 percent, compared with 4.35 percent for the second quarter of 2016 and 4.46 percent for the first quarter of 2017. The increases from both periods were primarily due to higher average yields on the variable- and adjustable-rate loans due to interest rate increases.

Non-interest Income

  • TCF sold $48.0 million, $533.4 million and $250.6 million of auto loans during the second quarters of 2017 and 2016 and the first quarter of 2017, respectively, resulting in net gains in each respective period. The decreases from both periods were due to the strategic shift in auto finance.
  • TCF sold $273.4 million, $344.6 million and $379.4 million of consumer real estate loans during the second quarters of 2017 and 2016 and the first quarter of 2017, respectively, resulting in net gains in each respective period.
  • Servicing fee income was $10.7 million on $5.3 billion of average loans and leases serviced for others for the second quarter of 2017, compared with $9.5 million on $4.7 billion for the second quarter of 2016 and $11.7 million on $5.6 billion for the first quarter of 2017. The increase from the second quarter of 2016 was due to the cumulative effect of the increase in the portfolio of consumer real estate and auto finance loans sold with servicing retained by TCF. The decrease from the first quarter of 2017 was primarily due to the shift in auto finance, resulting in a decrease in the portfolio of auto finance loans sold with servicing retained by TCF.
  • Leasing and equipment finance non-interest income for the second quarter of 2017 increased $8.8 million, or 28.2 percent, from the second quarter of 2016 and increased $11.5 million, or 40.8 percent, from the first quarter of 2017 due to customer-driven events resulting in increases in sales-type and operating lease revenue.

  • Period-end loans and leases were $18.4 billion at June 30, 2017, an increase of $0.9 billion, or 5.1 percent, from June 30, 2016 and an increase of $0.4 billion, or 2.2 percent, from March 31, 2017. Average loans and leases were $18.3 billion for the second quarter of 2017, an increase of $0.6 billion, or 3.4 percent, from the second quarter of 2016 and an increase of $0.3 billion, or 1.6 percent, from the first quarter of 2017.

    The increases from June 30, 2016 for period-end and average loans and leases were primarily due to increases in the auto finance and commercial portfolios, as well as increases in the leasing and equipment finance and inventory finance portfolios, partially offset by decreases in the consumer real estate portfolio. The increases in the auto finance portfolio were primarily due to the reclassification of approximately $345 million of loans from held for sale to held for investment during the second quarter of 2017. The increases in the commercial portfolio were primarily attributable to originations outpacing lower prepayments and pay-offs. The decreases in the consumer real estate portfolio were primarily due to decreases in the first mortgage lien portfolio due to run-off.

    The increase from March 31, 2017 for period-end loans and leases was primarily due to an increase in the auto finance portfolio due to the strategic shift and an increase in the consumer real estate junior lien portfolio, partially offset by a seasonal decrease in the inventory finance portfolio. The increase from the first quarter of 2017 for average loans and leases was primarily due to an increase in the auto finance portfolio, partially offset by a decrease in the consumer real estate portfolio.
  • Loan and lease originations were $4.1 billion for the second quarter of 2017, a decrease of $0.2 billion, or 4.8 percent, from the second quarter of 2016 and an increase of $0.1 billion, or 2.0 percent, from the first quarter of 2017. The decrease from the second quarter of 2016 was primarily due to decreased originations in auto finance, partially offset by higher inventory finance originations. The increase from the first quarter of 2017 was primarily due to increased originations in consumer real estate and leasing and equipment finance, partially offset by lower auto finance originations.

  • The over 60-day delinquency rate, excluding non-accrual loans and leases, was 0.11 percent at June 30, 2017, down from 0.12 percent at June 30, 2016, and up from 0.09 percent at March 31, 2017. The decrease from June 30, 2016 was primarily driven by improved delinquencies in the commercial and consumer real estate first mortgage lien portfolios, partially offset by higher delinquencies in the auto finance portfolio. The increase from March 31, 2017 was primarily driven by higher delinquencies in the auto finance portfolio.
  • The net charge-off rate was 0.28 percent for the second quarter of 2017, up from 0.23 percent for the second quarter of 2016 and up from 0.11 percent for the first quarter of 2017. The increase from the second quarter of 2016 was primarily due to increased net charge-offs in the commercial and auto finance portfolios, partially offset by decreased net charge-offs in the consumer real estate first mortgage lien portfolio. The increase from the first quarter of 2017 was primarily due to an $8.7 million recovery of previously charged-off consumer real estate non-accrual loans that were sold in the first quarter of 2017, partially offset by decreased net charge-offs in the auto finance portfolio. Excluding the $8.7 million recovery from the consumer real estate non-accrual loan sale, the net charge-off rate was 0.31% for the first quarter of 2017.
  • Non-accrual loans and leases and other real estate owned were $158.0 million at June 30, 2017, a decrease of $74.3 million, or 32.0 percent, from June 30, 2016, and a decrease of $12.9 million, or 7.6 percent, from March 31, 2017. Non-accrual loans and leases were $129.3 million at June 30, 2017, a decrease of $66.3 million, or 33.9 percent, from June 30, 2016 and a decrease of $9.7 million, or 7.0 percent, from March 31, 2017. The decrease from June 30, 2016 was primarily due to a decrease in consumer real estate non-accrual loans driven by the sale of $49.4 million of non-accrual loans in the first quarter of 2017. The decrease from March 31, 2017 was primarily due to decreases in commercial, consumer real estate and inventory finance non-accrual loans. Other real estate owned was $28.7 million at June 30, 2017, a decrease of $8.1 million, or 21.9 percent, from June 30, 2016, and a decrease of $3.2 million, or 10.1 percent, from March 31, 2017. The decreases from both periods were primarily due to the sales of consumer real estate properties outpacing additions.
  • Provision for credit losses was $19.4 million for the second quarter of 2017, an increase of $6.2 million, or 46.8 percent, from the second quarter of 2016, and an increase of $7.3 million, or 59.5 percent, from the first quarter of 2017.

    The increase from the second quarter of 2016 was primarily due to increases in the provision for credit losses attributable to the auto finance and commercial portfolios, partially offset by decreases in the provision for credit losses attributable to the inventory finance and consumer real estate portfolios. The increase in the provision for credit losses attributable to the auto finance portfolio was primarily due to growth in the portfolio, increased net charge-offs and increased reserve requirements due to the reclassification of loans from held for sale to held for investment. The increase in the provision for credit losses attributable to the commercial portfolio was primarily due to increased net charge-offs related to the work-out activities of three loans transferred to non-accrual during the first quarter of 2017 and growth in the portfolio. The decrease in provision for credit losses attributable to the inventory finance portfolio was primarily due to improving credit quality and the decrease in provision for credit losses attributable to the consumer real estate portfolio was primarily due to a decrease in the loan balance and net charge-offs in the consumer real estate first mortgage lien portfolio.

    The increase from the first quarter of 2017 was primarily due to the recovery of $8.7 million in the first quarter of 2017 on previous charge-offs related to the consumer real estate non-accrual loans that were sold and an increase in the provision for credit losses in the second quarter of 2017 attributable to the reclassification of auto finance loans from held for sale to held for investment, partially offset by a decrease in the provision for credit losses attributable to the inventory finance portfolio due to a decrease in the portfolio.

  • The average interest rate on deposits for the second quarter of 2017 was 0.33 percent, down 4 basis points from the second quarter of 2016 and consistent with the first quarter of 2017. The decrease from the second quarter of 2016 was primarily due to decreased average interest rates on money market balances.

The decrease from the second quarter of 2016 was primarily due to reduced headcount in auto finance, partially offset by higher enterprise services contract labor utilization. The decrease from the first quarter of 2017 was primarily due to seasonality of payroll taxes and reduced headcount in auto finance.
  • Other non-interest expense increased $1.7 million, or 2.8 percent, from the second quarter of 2016 and decreased $3.0 million, or 4.6 percent, from the first quarter of 2017. The increase from the second quarter of 2016 was primarily due to higher professional fees related to strategic investments in technology capabilities, as well as advertising and marketing expenses, partially offset by $2.9 million of branch realignment expense incurred in the second quarter of 2016. The decrease from the first quarter of 2017 was primarily due to lower severance expense in the auto finance business.
  • Net expenses related to foreclosed real estate and repossessed assets increased $1.5 million, or 48.0 percent, from the second quarter of 2016 and were consistent with the first quarter of 2017. The increase from the second quarter of 2016 was primarily due to lower gains on sales of consumer real estate properties and higher repossessed assets expense attributable to auto finance, partially offset by lower operating costs.
