CEO commentary:

 “In the second quarter, we achieved record net revenue totaling $6.0 billion, supported by strong growth in both net interest income and fee revenue. We posted diluted earnings per share of $0.99 including merger and integration-related charges of $(0.10) related to the planned acquisition of MUFG Union Bank. Loan growth was robust, we saw good momentum in our payments businesses reflecting strong business activity and our expense growth was well managed. This quarter our return on tangible common equity was 20.5%, excluding merger and integration-related charges. Credit quality remains strong and our net charge-off ratio improved modestly in the quarter. Given strong loan growth and increased uncertainty surrounding the macro-economic outlook, we increased our loan loss reserve reflecting our through-the-cycle risk management approach. As we head into the second half of the year we face an uncertain economic environment. However, we are well positioned for the range of possible outcomes given strong liquidity and capital ratios, our diversified business mix, and our well-established risk management track record.”

In the spotlight:

 Community Benefits Plan

U.S. Bancorp announced a $100 billion, five-year community benefits plan (CBP) as part of the planned acquisition of MUFG Union Bank. The CBP, which will be effective once the acquisition closes, is intended to continue and expand the important work underway by both organizations to build and support equitable access to capital for the communities we serve. A majority of the commitments, 60% of the total, will support efforts in California, the state most impacted by the acquisition.
