U.S. Bancorp Chairman, President and CEO Andy Cecere said, “In the first quarter, we reported earnings per share of $0.99 and a return on tangible common equity of 16.6%. Our results benefitted from healthy trends in consumer and business activity. We saw very strong loan growth, which drove solid growth in net interest income. Our fee revenue growth was supported by improving business activity and new business wins. Notably, we continued to see good momentum in our payments businesses reflecting both continued cyclical recovery in pandemic impacted industries, particularly travel and entertainment sectors, as well as the benefit from previous investments. We continue to manage our operating expenses prudently, even as we invest for the future, and we continue to benefit from the progress we are making on initiatives aimed at advancing our digital offerings, expanding our payment services capabilities and enhancing our core technology. We continue to work on integration activities related to our planned acquisition of Union Bank and we remain confident the strategic and financial merits of this deal will meaningfully enhance shareholder value and the combination will benefit our customers, our communities and our employees for years to come. Our credit quality remains strong, and we continue to approach credit decisions with a through the cycle lens. In summary, the year is off to a good start, and I would like to thank our employees for their hard work and dedication to serving all our constituents.”
