Certain prior period amounts have been reclassified to conform with the current period presentation, which we believe is more meaningful to readers of our consolidated financial statements.

(a) The Executive Summary and Consolidated Income Statement Review portions of the Financial Review section of this Report provide information regarding items impacting the comparability of the periods presented.
(b) We believe that pretax, pre-provision earnings, a non-GAAP measure, is useful as a tool to help evaluate the ability to provide for credit costs through operations.
(c) Calculated as annualized taxable-equivalent net interest income divided by average earning assets. The interest income earned on certain earning assets is completely or partially exempt from federal income tax. As such, these tax-exempt instruments typically yield lower returns than taxable investments. To provide more meaningful comparisons of net interest margins for all earning assets, we use net interest income on a taxable-equivalent basis in calculating net interest margin by increasing the interest income earned on tax-exempt assets to make it fully equivalent to interest income earned on taxable investments. This adjustment is not permitted under generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP) in the Consolidated Income Statement. The taxable-equivalent adjustments to net interest income for the three months ended March 31, 2013 and March 31, 2012 were $40 million and $31 million, respectively.

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

PNC is one of the largest diversified financial services companies in the United States and is headquartered in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

PNC has businesses engaged in retail banking, corporate and institutional banking, asset management and residential mortgage banking, providing many of its products and services nationally, as well as other products and services in PNC’s primary geographic markets located in Pennsylvania, Ohio, New Jersey, Michigan, Illinois, Maryland, Indiana, North Carolina, Florida, Kentucky, Washington, D.C., Delaware, Alabama, Virginia, Georgia, Missouri, Wisconsin and South Carolina. PNC also provides certain products and services internationally.

KEY STRATEGIC GOALS

At PNC we manage our company for the long term. We are focused on the fundamentals of growing customers, loans, deposits and fee revenue and improving profitability, while investing for the future and managing risk and capital. We continue to invest in our products, markets and brand, and embrace our corporate responsibility to the communities where we do business.

We strive to expand and deepen customer relationships by offering convenient banking options and innovative technology solutions, providing a broad range of fee-based and credit products and services, focusing on customer service and enhancing our brand. Our approach is focused on organically growing and deepening client relationships that meet our risk/return measures. Our strategies for growing fee income across our lines of business will be focused on achieving deeper market penetration and cross selling our diverse product mix. A key priority is to drive growth in newly acquired and underpenetrated markets, including in the Southeast. We may also grow revenue through appropriate and targeted acquisitions and, in certain businesses, by expanding into new geographical markets.

Our capital priorities for 2013 are to support client growth and business investment, maintain appropriate capital in light of economic uncertainty and the Basel III framework and return excess capital to shareholders through dividends, subject to regulatory approval. We continue to improve our capital levels and ratios and expect to build capital through retained earnings. During 2013, PNC does not expect to repurchase common stock through a share buyback program. PNC continues to maintain a strong bank holding company liquidity position. For more detail, see the 2013 Capital and Liquidity Actions portion of this Executive Summary, the Funding and Capital Sources portion of the Consolidated Balance Sheet Review section and the Liquidity Risk Management section of this Financial Review and the Supervision and Regulation section in Item 1 Business of our 2012 Form 10-K.

PNC faces a variety of risks that may impact various aspects of our risk profile from time to time. The extent of such impacts may vary depending on factors such as the current economic, political and regulatory environment, merger and acquisition activity and operational challenges. Many of these risks and our risk management strategies are described in more detail in our 2012 Form 10-K and elsewhere in this Report.

RBC BANK (USA) ACQUISITION

On March 2, 2012, we acquired 100% of the issued and outstanding common stock of RBC Bank (USA), the U.S. retail banking subsidiary of Royal Bank of Canada. As part of the acquisition, PNC also purchased a credit card portfolio from RBC Bank (Georgia), National Association. PNC paid $3.6 billion in cash as the consideration for the acquisition of both RBC Bank (USA) and the credit card portfolio. The transaction added approximately $18.1 billion in deposits, $14.5 billion of loans, $1.0 billion of goodwill and $.2 billion of other intangible assets to PNC’s Consolidated Balance Sheet. Our Consolidated Income Statement includes the impact of business activity associated with the RBC Bank (USA) acquisition subsequent to March 2, 2012. See Note 2 Acquisition and Divestiture Activity in the Notes To Consolidated Financial Statements in this Report for additional information regarding this acquisition.

SALE OF SMARTSTREET

Effective October 26, 2012, PNC divested certain deposits and assets of the Smartstreet business unit, which was acquired by PNC as part of the RBC Bank (USA) acquisition, to Union Bank, N.A. Smartstreet is a nationwide business focused on homeowner or community association managers and had approximately $1 billion of assets and deposits as of September 30, 2012. The gain on sale was immaterial and resulted in a reduction of goodwill and core deposit intangibles of $46 million and $13 million, respectively.

2013 CAPITAL AND LIQUIDITY ACTIONS

Our ability to take certain capital actions, including plans to pay or increase common stock dividends or to repurchase shares under current or future programs, is subject to the results of the supervisory assessment of capital adequacy undertaken by the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System (Federal Reserve) and our primary bank regulators as part of the Comprehensive Capital Analysis and Review (CCAR) process. This capital adequacy assessment is based on a review of a comprehensive capital plan submitted to the Federal Reserve.

In connection with the 2013 CCAR, PNC submitted its capital plan, approved by its board of directors, to the Federal Reserve and our primary bank regulators in January 2013. As we announced on March 14, 2013, the Federal Reserve accepted the capital plan that we submitted for their review and did not object to our proposed capital actions, which included a recommendation to increase the quarterly common stock dividend in the second quarter of 2013. A share repurchase program for 2013 was not included in the capital plan primarily as a result of PNC’s 2012 acquisition of RBC Bank (USA) and expansion into Southeastern markets. For additional information concerning the CCAR process and the factors the Federal Reserve takes into consideration in evaluating capital plans, see Item 1 Business – Supervision and Regulation included in our 2012 Form 10-K. See the Liquidity Risk Management portion of the Risk Management section of this Financial Review, as well as Note 20 Subsequent Events in the Notes To Consolidated Financial Statements in this Report, for more detail on our 2013 capital and liquidity actions.

On April 4, 2013, consistent with our capital plan submitted to the Federal Reserve in 2013, our board of directors approved an increase to PNC’s quarterly common stock dividend from 40 cents per common share to 44 cents per common share. For the second quarter of 2013, the increased dividend was payable to shareholders of record at the close of business on April 16, 2013 and was paid on the next business day after the payment date of May 5, 2013.

RECENT MARKET AND INDUSTRY DEVELOPMENTS

There have been numerous legislative and regulatory developments and dramatic changes in the competitive landscape of our industry over the last several years.

The United States and other governments have undertaken major reform of the regulation of the financial services industry, including engaging in new efforts to impose requirements designed to strengthen the stability of the financial system and protect consumers and investors. We expect to face further increased regulation of our industry as a result of current and future initiatives intended to provide economic stimulus, financial market stability and enhanced regulation of financial services companies and to enhance the liquidity and solvency of financial institutions and markets. We also expect in many cases more intense scrutiny from our bank supervisors in the examination process and more aggressive enforcement of regulations on both the federal and state levels. Compliance with new regulations will increase our costs and reduce our revenue. Some new regulations may limit our ability to pursue certain desirable business opportunities.

The Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act (Dodd-Frank), enacted in July 2010, mandates the most wide-ranging overhaul of financial industry regulation in decades. Many parts of the law are now in effect, and others are now in the implementation stage, which is likely to continue for several years.

PNC will be providing its first market-risk related disclosures under the final market risk capital rules adopted by the Federal banking agencies in June 2012 (commonly referred to as “Basel II.5”) with respect to the quarter ended March 31, 2013. PNC is able to satisfy the requirement to make this disclosure through postings on its website, and PNC expects to do so without also providing disclosure of this information through filings with the SEC.

In April 2013, the Federal Reserve requested comment on a proposed rule that would require bank holding companies with $50 billion or more in total assets, including PNC, and systemically designated nonbank financial companies to pay, beginning in 2013, an annual assessment to reimburse the Federal Reserve for the costs of supervising and regulating such companies. While the assessment formula remains subject to change until a final rule is adopted, PNC’s annual assessment would not be material based on the formula contained in the proposal.

For additional information concerning recent legislative and regulatory developments, including developments related to the implementation of the Basel III capital framework, as well as certain governmental, legislative and regulatory inquiries and investigations that may affect PNC, please see Item 1 Business – Supervision and Regulation, Item 1A Risk Factors and Note 23 Legal Proceedings in Item 8 of our 2012 Form 10-K and Note 17 Legal Proceedings and Note 18 Commitments and Guarantees in the Notes To Consolidated Financial Statements in Part I, Item 1 of this Report.

KEY FACTORS AFFECTING FINANCIAL PERFORMANCE

Our financial performance is substantially affected by a number of external factors outside of our control, including the following:

   

General economic conditions, including the continuity, speed and stamina of the moderate economic recovery in general and on our customers in particular,

   

The level of, and direction, timing and magnitude of movement in, interest rates and the shape of the interest rate yield curve,

   

The functioning and other performance of, and availability of liquidity in, the capital and other financial markets,

   

Loan demand, utilization of credit commitments and standby letters of credit, and asset quality,

   

Customer demand for non-loan products and services,

Further success in growing profitability through the acquisition and retention of customers,

   

Continued development of the geographic markets related to our recent acquisitions, including full deployment of our product offerings into our Southeast markets,

   

Revenue growth and our ability to provide innovative and valued products to our customers,

Continuing to maintain and grow our deposit base as a low-cost funding source,

   

Prudent risk and capital management related to our efforts to manage risk in keeping with a moderate risk philosophy, and to meet evolving regulatory capital standards,

   

Actions we take within the capital and other financial markets,

   

The impact of legal and regulatory-related contingencies, and

   

The appropriateness of reserves needed for critical estimates and related contingencies.

For additional information, please see the Cautionary Statement Regarding Forward-Looking Information section in this Financial Review and Item 1A Risk Factors in our 2012 Form 10-K.

INCOME STATEMENT HIGHLIGHTS

   

Net income for the first quarter of 2013 of $1.0 billion increased 24% compared to the first quarter of 2012, driven by revenue growth of 6% and a decline in noninterest expense of 2%, partially offset by an increase in the provision for credit losses. For additional detail, please see the Consolidated Income Statement Review section in this Financial Review.

   

Net interest income of $2.4 billion for the first quarter of 2013 increased 4% compared with the first quarter of 2012 driven by organic loan growth and the full quarter impact of the RBC Bank (USA) acquisition.

   

Net interest margin decreased to 3.81% for the first quarter of 2013 compared to 3.90% for the first quarter of 2012 due to lower purchase accounting accretion.

   

Noninterest income of $1.6 billion for the first quarter of 2013 increased 9% compared to the first quarter of 2012. The increase reflected higher fee income from corporate services, consumer services and asset management.

   

The provision for credit losses increased to $236 million for the first quarter of 2013 compared to $185 million for the first quarter of 2012. The increase in the comparison primarily reflected a larger loan portfolio.

   

Noninterest expense of $2.4 billion for the first quarter of 2013 decreased 2% compared with the first quarter of 2012 primarily driven by lower integration costs, partially offset by the impact in the first quarter 2013 of a full quarter of operating expense for the RBC Bank (USA) acquisition. The decline also reflected our continued commitment to disciplined expense management.

CREDIT QUALITY HIGHLIGHTS

   

Overall credit quality improved during the first quarter of 2013. While credit quality metrics for the first quarter of 2013 were impacted by alignment with interagency guidance, underlying credit quality continued to improve. Alignment with interagency guidance on practices for loans and lines of credit related to consumer lending in the first quarter of 2013 had the overall effect of accelerating charge-offs and nonaccrual classification while reducing delinquencies.

Table of Contents
   

Nonperforming assets of $3.9 billion at March 31, 2013 increased by $.1 billion, or 4%, compared to December 31, 2012. The increase was mainly due to the alignment with interagency guidance for loans and lines of credit related to consumer loans of $426 million. Commercial lending nonperforming loans decreased $115 million, or 8%, as a result of improving credit quality. Nonperforming assets to total assets were 1.31% at March 31, 2013 compared with 1.24% at December 31, 2012 and 1.47% at March 31, 2012.

   

Overall delinquencies of $3.2 billion decreased $.6 billion as of March 31, 2013 compared with December 31, 2012. The decline was due in part to $395 million for alignment with interagency guidance. A substantial portion of this decrease was reflected in accruing loans past due 90 days or more.

   

Net charge-offs of $456 million increased $123 million compared to the first quarter of 2012. First quarter 2013 included charge-offs of $134 million primarily related to home equity and residential real estate loans to align with interagency guidance. On an annualized basis, net charge-offs were 0.99% of average loans for the first quarter of 2013 and 0.81% of average loans for the first quarter of 2012. Excluding the impact of these $134 million additional charge-offs, annualized net charge-offs to average loans for the first quarter 2013 was 0.70%.

   

The allowance for loan and lease losses was 2.05% of total loans and 112% of nonperforming loans at March 31, 2013, compared with 2.17% and 124% at December 31, 2012, respectively. The decrease in the allowance compared with year end resulted from improved overall credit quality and the impact of alignment with interagency guidance.

BALANCE SHEET HIGHLIGHTS

   

Total loans increased by $.6 billion to $187 billion at March 31, 2013 compared to December 31, 2012.

   

Total commercial lending increased by $1.3 billion, or 1%, from December 31, 2012, as a result of growth in commercial loans primarily from new relationships.

   

Total consumer lending decreased $.7 billion from December 31, 2012 primarily from pay downs of residential real estate, credit card and education loans.

   

Total deposits decreased by $1.5 billion to $212 billion at March 31, 2013 compared with December 31, 2012.

   

Runoff of year-end seasonally higher transaction deposits resulted in a decrease of $1.3 billion to $175 billion at March 31, 2013 compared with December 31, 2012.

   

Average transaction deposits grew $3.1 billion to $173.2 billion in the first quarter of 2013 compared with average transaction deposits in the fourth quarter of 2012.

   

PNC’s balance sheet remained core funded with a loans to deposits ratio of 88% at March 31, 2013.

   

PNC had a strong capital position at March 31, 2013.

   

The Tier 1 common capital ratio increased to 9.8% compared with 9.6% at December 31, 2012.

   

The estimated pro forma Basel III Tier 1 common capital ratio was 8.0% at March 31, 2013, without benefit of phase-ins. See Table 22: Estimated Pro forma Basel III Tier 1 Common Capital in the Consolidated Balance Sheet Review section of this Financial Review for more detail.

   

In April 2013, the PNC board of directors raised the quarterly cash dividend on common stock to 44 cents per share, an increase of 4 cents per share, or 10 %, effective with the May dividend.

Our Consolidated Income Statement and Consolidated Balance Sheet Review sections of this Financial Review describe in greater detail the various items that impacted our results for the first three months of 2013 and 2012 and balances at March 31, 2013 and December 31, 2012, respectively.

information on changes in selected Consolidated Balance Sheet categories at March 31, 2013 compared with December 31, 2012.

Total average assets increased to $303.4 billion for the first quarter of 2013 compared with $281.5 billion for the first quarter of 2012, primarily due to an increase of $18.4 billion in average interest-earning assets driven by an increase in average total loans, including the full quarter impact of loans added in the RBC Bank (USA) acquisition, which closed March 2, 2012. Total assets were $300.8 billion at March 31, 2013 compared with $305.1 billion at December 31, 2012.

Average total loans increased by $21.5 billion to $186.1 billion for the first quarter of 2013 compared with the first quarter of 2012, including increases in average commercial loans of $14.2 billion and average consumer loans of $4.3 billion. The overall increase in loans reflected organic loan growth, primarily in corporate banking and real estate, as well as the full quarter impact of loans added in the RBC Bank (USA) acquisition.

Loans represented 73% of average interest-earning assets for the first quarter of 2013 and 69% of average interest-earning assets for the first quarter of 2012.

Average investment securities decreased $3.1 billion to $58.5 billion in the first quarter of 2013 compared with the first quarter of 2012, primarily as a result of principal payments. Total investment securities comprised 23% of average interest-earning assets for the first quarter of 2013 and 26% for the first quarter of 2012.

Average noninterest-earning assets increased $3.5 billion to $47.3 billion in the first quarter of 2013 compared with the first quarter of 2012. The increase included the impact of higher adjustments for net unrealized gains on securities, which are included in noninterest-earnings assets for average balance sheet purposes, the impact of the RBC Bank (USA) acquisition, including goodwill, and an increase in equity investments.

Average total deposits were $209.7 billion for the first quarter of 2013 compared with $192.1 billion for the first quarter of 2012. The increase of $17.6 billion primarily resulted from an increase in average transaction deposits of $22.6 billion partially offset by a decrease of $5.5 billion in average retail

certificates of deposit attributable to runoff of maturing accounts. Growth in average money market deposits, average interest-bearing demand deposits and average noninterest-bearing deposits drove the increase in average transaction deposits, which resulted from deposits added in the RBC Bank (USA) acquisition and organic growth. Average transaction deposits were $173.2 billion for the first quarter of 2013 compared with $150.7 billion for the first quarter of 2012. Total deposits at March 31, 2013 were $211.6 billion compared with $213.1 billion at December 31, 2012 and are further discussed within the Consolidated Balance Sheet Review section of this Financial Review.

Average total deposits represented 69% of average total assets for the first quarter of 2013 and 68% for the first quarter of 2012.

Average borrowed funds remained relatively flat with a balance of $39.7 billion for the first quarter of 2013 compared with $40.2 billion for the first quarter of 2012. Lower average Federal Home Loan Bank (FHLB) borrowings and net redemptions and maturities of subordinated debt and bank notes and senior debt, were mostly offset by an increase in average commercial paper. Total borrowed funds at March 31, 2013 were $37.6 billion compared with $40.9 billion at December 31, 2012 and are further discussed within the Consolidated Balance Sheet Review section of this Financial Review. The Liquidity Risk Management portion of the Risk Management section of this Financial Review includes additional information regarding our sources and uses of borrowed funds.

BUSINESS SEGMENT HIGHLIGHTS

Total business segment earnings were $936 million for the first three months of 2013 and $900 million for the first three months of 2012. Highlights of results for the first quarters of 2013 and 2012 are included below. The Business Segments Review section of this Financial Review includes further analysis of our business segment results over the first three months of 2013 and 2012 including presentation differences from Note 19 Segment Reporting in our Notes To Consolidated Financial Statements in Part I, Item 1 of this Report.

Retail Banking

Retail Banking earned $120 million in the first three months of 2013 compared with $147 million for the same period a year ago. The decrease in earnings resulted from higher noninterest expense and provision for credit losses, both attributable to the full quarter impact of the RBC Bank (USA) acquisition. Noninterest income was also higher compared with the first quarter of 2012 primarily due to increased debit and credit card transactions, brokerage activity and the RBC Bank (USA) acquisition.

Corporate & Institutional Banking

In the first quarter of 2013, Corporate & Institutional Banking earned $541 million compared with $495 million in the first quarter of 2012. Earnings increased for the first quarter of 2013 primarily due to the full quarter impact of the RBC Bank (USA) acquisition and organic growth. The increase in revenue in the comparison reflected higher net interest income from higher average loans and deposits, as well as growth in corporate service fees primarily due to higher commercial mortgage servicing revenue. The increase in noninterest expense reflected a full quarter impact of the RBC Bank (USA) acquisition.

Asset Management Group

Asset Management Group earned $43 million in the first three months of 2013 compared with $36 million in the first three months of 2012. Assets under administration reached a record high for Asset Management Group of $236 billion as of March 31, 2013 and were $219 billion as of March 31, 2012. Revenue increased $12 million, or 5%, in the year over year comparison due to stronger average equity markets and increased sales volume. The revenue increase was partially offset by higher noninterest expense from strategic business investments.

Residential Mortgage Banking

Residential Mortgage Banking reported net income of $45 million in the first three months of 2013 compared with $61 million in the first three months of 2012. Earnings declined from the prior year period primarily as a result of higher provision for credit losses. Noninterest income was stable in the comparison, as decreases in net hedging gains on mortgage servicing rights and servicing fees were offset by increased loan sales revenue and lower provision for residential mortgage repurchase obligations. The increase to noninterest expense from higher loan origination volume was more than offset by lower residential mortgage foreclosure-related expense and legal expense.

BlackRock

Our BlackRock business segment earned $108 million in the first three months of 2013 and $90 million in the first three months of 2012. The higher business segment earnings from BlackRock for the first quarter of 2013 compared to the first quarter of 2012 was primarily due to PNC’s higher equity earnings from BlackRock.

Non-Strategic Assets Portfolio

In the first quarter of 2013, Non-Strategic Assets Portfolio had earnings of $79 million compared with $71 million for the first quarter of 2012, primarily attributable to higher noninterest income, partially offset by higher provision for credit losses. The increase in noninterest income reflected a lower provision for estimated losses on home equity repurchase obligations. The increase in provision for credit losses in the comparison was driven by reductions in expected cash flows on purchased impaired home equity loans.

Other

“Other” reported earnings of $68 million for the three months of 2013 compared with a loss of $89 million for the first three months of 2012. Increased earnings for the 2013 period was primarily due to lower integration costs.

CONSOLIDATED INCOME STATEMENT REVIEW

Our Consolidated Income Statement is presented in Part I, Item 1 of this Report.

Net income for the first three months of 2013 was $1.0 billion, an increase of 24% compared with $.8 billion for the first three months of 2012. The increase was driven by revenue growth of 6% and a decline in noninterest expense of 2%, partially offset by an increase in the provision for credit losses. Revenue growth in the comparison was driven by higher net interest income, higher corporate and consumer services fees and higher asset management revenue. The decline in noninterest expense in the comparison reflected lower integration costs and continued commitment to disciplined expense management, partially offset by the impact of a full quarter of operating expense for the RBC Bank (USA) acquisition.

Net interest income

   $ 2,389       $ 2,291   

Net interest margin

     3.81      3.90

Changes in net interest income and margin result from the interaction of the volume and composition of interest-earning assets and related yields, interest-bearing liabilities and related rates paid, and noninterest-bearing sources of funding. See the Statistical Information (Unaudited) – Average Consolidated Balance Sheet And Net Interest Analysis section of this Report and the discussion of purchase accounting accretion of purchased impaired loans in the Consolidated Balance Sheet review of this Report for additional information.

Net interest income increased by $98 million, or 4%, in the first quarter of 2013 compared with the first quarter of 2012, driven by organic loan growth and the full quarter impact of the RBC Bank (USA) acquisition.

The decline in the net interest margin for the first quarter of 2013 compared with the first quarter of 2012 was due to lower purchase accounting accretion.

Net interest margin for the first quarter of 2013 also reflected a 26 basis point decrease in the yield on total interest-earning assets, partially offset by a decrease in the weighted-average rate accrued on total interest-bearing liabilities of 22 basis points. The decrease in the yield on interest-earning assets was

primarily due to lower rates on new loans and purchased securities in the ongoing low rate environment. The decrease in the rate accrued on interest-bearing liabilities was primarily due to net redemptions and maturities of bank notes and senior debt and subordinated debt, including the redemption of trust preferred and hybrid capital securities, and the runoff of maturing retail certificates of deposit during 2012.

With respect to the second quarter of 2013, we expect net interest income to decline by two to three percent compared to first quarter 2013 net interest income.

For the full year 2013, we expect net interest income to decrease compared with 2012, assuming an expected decline in the purchase accounting accretion component of net interest income of approximately $350 million.

Noninterest income increased by $125 million, or 9%, during the first three months of 2013 compared to first three months of 2012. The overall increase reflected higher fee income from corporate services, consumer services and asset management.

Asset management revenue, including BlackRock, increased $24 million in the first three months of 2013 to $308 million compared with $284 million in the first three months of 2012. The increase was due to stronger equity markets, growth in customers and higher earnings from our BlackRock investment. Discretionary assets under management increased to $118 billion at March 31, 2013 compared with $112 billion at March 31, 2012 driven by higher equity markets, strong sales performance and successful client retention.

Consumer service fees were $296 million for the first three months of 2013, which reflected an increase of $32 million, or 12%, compared with $264 million in the first three months of 2012, due to growth in customers and transaction volume.

Table of Contents

Corporate services revenue increased by $45 million, or 19%, in the first quarter of 2013 to $277 million compared to $232 million in the first quarter of 2012, primarily as a result of higher commercial mortgage servicing revenue.

Residential mortgage revenue increased to $234 million in the first three months of 2013 from $230 million in the first three months of 2012, which includes the impact of the decline in provision for residential mortgage repurchase obligations to $4 million in the first three months of 2013, compared to $32 million in the first three months of 2012. Excluding this provision impact, residential mortgage revenue decreased by $24 million due to the impact of lower net hedging gains on mortgage servicing rights, which was partially offset by higher loan sales revenue.

Service charges on deposits grew to $136 million for the first quarter of 2013 from $127 million for the first quarter of 2012. The increase reflected customer growth, including the RBC Bank (USA) acquisition.

Other noninterest income increased by $26 million, or 9%, to $311 million for the first three months of 2013 compared with $285 million for the first three months of 2012, which was primarily attributable to higher revenue associated with commercial mortgage banking activity.

Other noninterest income typically fluctuates from period to period depending on the nature and magnitude of transactions completed. Further details regarding our trading activities are included in the Market Risk Management – Trading Risk portion of the Risk Management section of this Financial Review. Further details regarding private and other equity investments are included in the Market Risk Management – Equity And Other Investment Risk section, and further details regarding gains or losses related to our equity investment in BlackRock are included in the Business Segments Review section.

For 2013, we continue to expect both full year 2013 noninterest income and total revenue to increase compared with 2012.

PROVISION FOR CREDIT LOSSES

The provision for credit losses totaled $236 million for the first three months of 2013 compared with $185 million for the first three months of 2012. The increase in the comparison primarily reflected a larger loan portfolio.

We currently expect our provision for credit losses in the second quarter of 2013 to be between $200 million and $300 million.

The Credit Risk Management portion of the Risk Management section of this Financial Review includes additional information regarding factors impacting the provision for credit losses.

NONINTEREST EXPENSE

Noninterest expense was $2.4 billion for the first three months of 2013 and $2.5 billion for the first three months of 2012. The decline in the comparison reflected residential mortgage foreclosure-related expenses of $15 million for the first three months of 2013, while noninterest expense for the first three months of 2012 included integration costs of $145 million and residential mortgage foreclosure-related expenses of $38 million. These declines were partially offset by the impact in the first quarter 2013 of a full quarter of operating expense for the RBC Bank (USA) acquisition.

The decline in noninterest expense in the comparison also reflected our continued commitment to disciplined expense management, and we currently expect to achieve our $700 million continuous improvement savings goal for 2013. Through the end of the first quarter, we have captured approximately $500 million of annualized savings. Cost savings are expected to offset investments we are making in our businesses and infrastructure.

For the second quarter of 2013, we currently expect noninterest expenses to be two to three percent higher than the first quarter of 2013.

We continue to expect noninterest expense for 2013 to decline by mid-single digits on a percentage basis compared with 2012. We expect noninterest expense, excluding integration costs and trust preferred securities redemption related charges, to be flat to down in 2013 versus 2012.

EFFECTIVE INCOME TAX RATE

The effective income tax rate was 24.2% in the first three months of 2013 compared with 25.7% in the first three months of 2012. The effective tax rate is generally lower than the statutory rate primarily due to increased tax credits PNC receives from our investments in low income housing and new markets investments, as well increased earnings in other tax exempt investments. The lower effective income tax rate in the first quarter 2013 compared to the prior year quarter was primarily attributable to the impact of higher tax-exempt income and tax credits, partially offset by higher levels of pretax income.

The summarized balance sheet data above is based upon our Consolidated Balance Sheet in this Report.

The decrease in total assets of $4.3 billion at March 31, 2013 compared with December 31, 2012 was primarily due to lower interest-earning deposits with banks (which is included in Other, net in the preceding table) and investment securities. The decline in investment securities was primarily due to principal payments. The decline in interest-earning deposits with banks was primarily driven by the impact of decreased borrowed funds and decreased deposits, partially offset by the impact of decreased investment securities. Total liabilities decreased $4.6 billion at March 31, 2013 compared with December 31, 2012 primarily due to the runoff of year end seasonally higher deposits and lower FHLB borrowings.

An analysis of changes in selected balance sheet categories follows.

LOANS

A summary of the major categories of loans outstanding follows. Outstanding loan balances of $186.5 billion at March 31, 2013 and $185.9 billion at December 31, 2012 were net of unearned income, net deferred loan fees, unamortized discounts and premiums, and purchase discounts and premiums of $2.5 billion at March 31, 2013 and $2.7 billion at December 31, 2012, respectively. The balances

include purchased impaired loans but do not include future accretable net interest (i.e., the difference between the undiscounted expected cash flows and the carrying value of the loan) on those loans.

The increase in loans of $.6 billion from December 31, 2012 included an increase in commercial lending of $1.3 billion and a decrease in consumer lending of $.7 billion. The increase in commercial lending was the result of growth in commercial loans primarily from new relationships. The decline in consumer lending resulted primarily from pay downs of residential real estate, credit card and education loans.

Table of Contents

Loans represented 62% of total assets at March 31, 2013 and 61% of total assets at December 31, 2012. Commercial lending represented 59% of the loan portfolio at both March 31, 2013 and December 31, 2012. Consumer lending represented 41% of the loan portfolio at both March 31, 2013 and December 31, 2012.

Commercial real estate loans represented 10% of total loans and 6% of total assets at both March 31, 2013 and December 31, 2012. See the Credit Risk Management portion of the Risk Management section of this Financial Review for additional details of loans.

Total loans above include purchased impaired loans of $7.1 billion, or 4% of total loans, at March 31, 2013, and $7.4 billion, or 4% of total loans, at December 31, 2012.

Our loan portfolio continued to be diversified among numerous industries, types of businesses and consumers across our principal geographic markets.

The Allowance for Loan and Lease Losses (ALLL) and the Allowance for Unfunded Loan Commitments and Letters of Credit are sensitive to changes in assumptions and judgments and are inherently subjective as they require material estimates, all of which may be susceptible to significant change, including, among others:

   

Probability of default,

   

Loss given default,

   

Exposure at date of default,

   

Movement through delinquency stages,

   

Amounts and timing of expected cash flows,

   

Value of collateral, and

   

Qualitative factors, such as changes in current economic conditions, that may not be reflected in historical results.

HIGHER RISK LOANS

Our total ALLL of $3.8 billion at March 31, 2013 consisted of $1.7 billion and $2.1 billion established for the commercial lending and consumer lending categories, respectively. The ALLL included what we believe to be appropriate loss coverage on higher risk loans in the commercial and consumer portfolios. We do not consider government insured or guaranteed loans to be higher risk as defaults have historically been materially mitigated by payments of insurance or guarantee amounts for approved claims. Additional information regarding our higher risk loans is included in the

Credit Risk Management portion of the Risk Management section of this Financial Review and in Note 5 Asset Quality and Note 7 Allowances for Loan and Lease Losses and Unfunded Loan Commitments and Letters of Credit in our Notes To Consolidated Financial Statements included in Part I, Item 1 of this Report.

Approximately half of the commercial portfolio impact related to excess cash recoveries recognized during the period, with the remaining due to improvements of cash expected to be collected on both RBC Bank (USA) and National City loans in future periods. The remaining net reclassifications were due to future cash flow changes in the consumer portfolio.
(b) As of March 31, 2013, we estimate that the reversal of contractual interest on purchased impaired loans will total approximately $1.2 billion in future periods. This will offset the total net accretable interest in future interest income of $2.2 billion on purchased impaired loans.

The unpaid principal balance of purchased impaired loans decreased to $7.8 billion at March 31, 2013 from $8.3 billion at December 31, 2012 due to payments, disposals and charge-offs of amounts determined to be uncollectible. The remaining purchased impaired mark at March 31, 2013 was $751 million, which was a decrease from $913 million at December 31, 2012. The associated allowance for loan losses remained relatively flat at $1.1 billion. The net investment of $6.0 billion at March 31, 2013 decreased 5% from $6.3 billion at December 31, 2012. At March 31, 2013, our largest individual purchased impaired loan had a recorded investment of $19 million.

We currently expect to collect total cash flows of $8.2 billion on purchased impaired loans, representing the $6.0 billion net investment at March 31, 2013 and the accretable net interest of $2.2 billion shown in Table 9: Purchased Impaired Loans – Accretable Yield.

PURCHASED IMPAIRED LOANS – ACCRETABLE DIFFERENCE SENSITIVITY ANALYSIS

The following table provides a sensitivity analysis on the Purchased Impaired Loans portfolio. The analysis reflects hypothetical changes in key drivers for expected cash flows over the life of the loans under declining and improving conditions at a point in time. Any unusual significant economic events or changes, as well as other variables not considered below (e.g., natural or widespread disasters), could result in impacts outside of the ranges represented below. Additionally, commercial and commercial real estate loan settlements or sales proceeds can vary widely from appraised values due to a number of factors including, but not limited to, special use considerations, liquidity premiums and improvements/deterioration in other income sources.

(a) Declining Scenario – Reflects hypothetical changes that would decrease future cash flow expectations. For consumer loans we assume home price forecast decreases by ten percent and unemployment rate forecast increases by two percentage points; for commercial loans, we assume that collateral values decrease by ten percent.
(b) Improving Scenario – Reflects hypothetical changes that would increase future cash flow expectations. For consumer loans, we assume home price forecast increases by ten percent, unemployment rate forecast decreases by two percentage points and interest rate forecast increases by two percentage points; for commercial loans, we assume that collateral values increase by ten percent.

The impact of declining cash flows is primarily reflected as immediate impairment (allowance for loan losses). The impact of increased cash flows is first recognized as a reversal of the allowance with any additional cash flow increases reflected as an increase in accretable yield over the life of the loan.

NET UNFUNDED CREDIT COMMITMENTS

(a) Includes $288 million of both amortized cost and fair value of securities classified as corporate stocks and other at March 31, 2013. Comparably, at December 31, 2012, amortized cost and fair value of these corporate stocks and other was $367 million. The remainder of securities available for sale are debt securities.

 

The carrying amount of investment securities totaled $59.4 billion at March 31, 2013, which was made up of $49.6 billion of securities available for sale carried at fair value and $9.8 billion of securities held to maturity carried at amortized cost. Comparably, at December 31, 2012, the carrying value of investment securities totaled $61.4 billion of which $51.0 billion represented securities available for sale carried at fair value and $10.4 billion of securities held to maturity carried at amortized cost.

The decrease in the carrying amount of investment securities of $2.0 billion since December 31, 2012 resulted primarily from a decline in agency residential mortgage-backed securities due to principal payments. Investment securities represented 20% of total assets at both March 31, 2013 and December 31, 2012.

We evaluate our portfolio of investment securities in light of changing market conditions and other factors and, where appropriate, take steps to improve our overall positioning. We consider the portfolio to be well-diversified and of high quality. U.S. Treasury and government agencies, agency residential mortgage-backed and agency commercial mortgage-backed securities collectively represented 57% of the investment securities portfolio at March 31, 2013.

At both March 31, 2013 and December 31, 2012, the securities available for sale portfolio included a net unrealized gain of $1.6 billion, which represented the difference between fair value and amortized cost. The fair value of investment securities is impacted by interest rates, credit spreads, market volatility and liquidity conditions. The fair value of investment securities generally decreases when interest rates increase and vice versa. In addition, the fair value generally

decreases when credit spreads widen and vice versa. Net unrealized gains and losses in the securities available for sale portfolio are included in Shareholders’ equity as Accumulated other comprehensive income or loss, net of tax, on our Consolidated Balance Sheet.

Additional information regarding our investment securities is included in Note 8 Investment Securities and Note 9 Fair Value in our Notes To Consolidated Financial Statements included in Part I, Item 1 of this Report.

Unrealized gains and losses on available for sale securities do not impact liquidity or risk-based capital under currently effective capital rules. However, reductions in the credit ratings of these securities could have an impact on the liquidity of the securities or the determination of risk-weighted assets, which could reduce our regulatory capital ratios under currently effective capital rules. In addition, the amount representing the credit-related portion of other-than- temporary impairment (OTTI) on available for sale securities would reduce our earnings and regulatory capital ratios.

The weighted-average expected life of investment securities (excluding corporate stocks and other) was 4.2 years at March 31, 2013 and 4.0 years at December 31, 2012.

The duration of investment securities was 2.4 years at March 31, 2013. We estimate that, at March 31, 2013, the effective duration of investment securities was 2.6 years for an immediate 50 basis points parallel increase in interest rates and 2.2 years for an immediate 50 basis points parallel decrease in interest rates. Comparable amounts at December 31, 2012 were 2.3 years and 2.2 years, respectively.

Table of Contents

We conduct a comprehensive security-level impairment assessment quarterly on all securities in an unrealized loss position to determine whether the loss represents OTTI. Our assessment considers the security structure, recent security collateral performance metrics, external credit ratings, failure of the issuer to make scheduled interest or principal payments, our judgment and expectations of future performance, and relevant independent industry research, analysis and forecasts.

We also consider the severity of the impairment and the length of time that the security has been impaired in our assessment. Results of the periodic assessment are reviewed by a cross-functional senior management team representing Asset & Liability Management, Finance and Market Risk Management. The senior management team considers the results of the assessments, as well as other factors, in determining whether the impairment is other-than-temporary.

For those debt securities where we do not intend to sell and believe we will not be required to sell the securities prior to expected recovery, we recognize the credit portion of OTTI charges in current earnings and the noncredit portion of OTTI is included in Net unrealized gains (losses) on OTTI securities on our Consolidated Statement of Comprehensive Income and in Accumulated other comprehensive income (loss), net of tax, on our Consolidated Balance Sheet.

We recognized OTTI for the first three months of 2013 and 2012 as follows:

Residential Mortgage-Backed Securities

At March 31, 2013, our residential mortgage-backed securities portfolio was comprised of $29.5 billion fair value of U.S. government agency-backed securities and $6.0 billion fair value of non-agency (private issuer) securities. The agency securities are generally collateralized by 1-4 family, conforming, fixed-rate residential mortgages. The non-agency securities are also generally collateralized by 1-4 family residential mortgages. The mortgage loans underlying the non-agency securities are generally non-conforming (i.e., original balances in excess of the amount qualifying for agency securities) and predominately have interest rates that are fixed for a period of time, after which the rate adjusts to a floating rate based upon a contractual spread that is indexed to a market rate (i.e., a “hybrid ARM”), or interest rates that are fixed for the term of the loan.

Substantially all of the non-agency securities are senior tranches in the securitization structure and at origination had credit protection in the form of credit enhancement, over-collateralization and/or excess spread accounts.

During the first three months of 2013, we recorded OTTI credit losses of $7 million on non-agency residential mortgage-backed securities. All of the losses were associated with securities rated below investment grade. As of March 31, 2013, the net unrealized loss recorded in Accumulated other comprehensive income for non-agency residential mortgage-backed securities for which we have recorded an OTTI credit loss totaled $32 million and the related securities had a fair value of $3.8 billion.

The fair value of sub-investment grade investment securities for which we have not recorded an OTTI credit loss as of March 31, 2013 totaled $1.8 billion, with unrealized net gains of $137 million.

Commercial Mortgage-Backed Securities

The fair value of the non-agency commercial mortgage-backed securities portfolio was $5.9 billion at March 31, 2013 and consisted of fixed-rate, private-issuer securities collateralized by non-residential properties, primarily retail properties, office buildings and multi-family housing. The agency commercial mortgage-backed securities portfolio had a fair value of $2.0 billion at March 31, 2013 consisting of multi-family housing. Substantially all of the securities are the most senior tranches in the subordination structure.

There were no OTTI credit losses on commercial mortgage-backed securities during the first three months of 2013.

Asset-Backed Securities

The fair value of the asset-backed securities portfolio was $7.0 billion at March 31, 2013. The portfolio consisted of fixed-rate and floating-rate securities collateralized by various consumer credit products, primarily student loans and residential mortgage loans, as well as securities backed by corporate debt. Substantially all of the securities are senior tranches in the securitization structure and have credit protection in the form of credit enhancement, over-collateralization and/or excess spread accounts. Substantially all of the student loans in the securitizations are guaranteed by an agency of the U.S. government.

We recorded OTTI credit losses of $3 million on asset-backed securities during the first three months of 2013. All of the securities are collateralized by first and second lien residential mortgage loans and are rated below investment grade. As of March 31, 2013, the net unrealized loss recorded in Accumulated other comprehensive income for asset-backed securities for which we have recorded an OTTI credit loss totaled $29 million and the related securities had a fair value of $599 million.

For the sub-investment grade investment securities (available for sale and held to maturity) for which we have not recorded an OTTI loss through March 31, 2013, the fair value was $43 million, with unrealized net losses of $1 million. The results of our security-level assessments indicate that we will recover the cost basis of these securities.

Note 8 Investment Securities in the Notes To Consolidated Financial Statements in Part I, Item 1 of this Report provides additional information on OTTI losses and further detail regarding our process for assessing OTTI.

If current housing and economic conditions were to worsen, and if market volatility and illiquidity were to worsen, or if market interest rates were to increase or credit spreads were to widen appreciably, the valuation of our investment securities portfolio could be adversely affected and we could incur additional OTTI credit losses that would impact our Consolidated Income Statement.

At March 31, 2013, the balance relating to these loans was $769 million, compared to $772 million at December 31, 2012.

We sold $926 million of commercial mortgages held for sale carried at lower of cost or market during the first three months of 2013 compared to $481 million during the first three months of 2012, due to an increase in loan sales to government agencies. Gains on sale, net of hedges, were immaterial.

Residential mortgage loan origination volume was $4.2 billion in the first three months of 2013 compared to $3.4 billion for the first three months of 2012. Substantially all such loans were originated under agency or Federal Housing Administration (FHA) standards. We sold $3.8 billion of loans and recognized related gains of $172 million during the first three months of 2013. The comparable amounts for the first three months of 2012 were $3.5 billion and $141 million, respectively.

Interest income on loans held for sale was $53 million in the first three months of 2013 and $50 million in the first three months of 2012. These amounts are included in Other interest income on our Consolidated Income Statement.

Our current common stock repurchase program permits us to purchase up to 25 million shares of PNC common stock on the open market or in privately negotiated transactions. This program will remain in effect until fully utilized or until modified, superseded or terminated. The extent and timing of share repurchases under this program will depend on a number of factors including, among others, market and general economic conditions, economic and regulatory capital considerations, alternative uses of capital and the potential impact on our credit ratings. We do not expect to repurchase any shares under this program in 2013. We did not include any such share repurchases in our 2013 capital plan submitted to the Federal Reserve, primarily as a result of PNC’s 2012 acquisition of RBC Bank (USA) and expansion into Southeastern markets.

Federal banking regulators have stated that they expect all bank holding companies to have a level and composition of Tier 1 capital well in excess of the 4% Basel I regulatory minimum, and they have required the largest U.S. bank holding companies, including PNC, to have a capital buffer sufficient to withstand losses and allow them to meet credit needs of their customers through estimated stress scenarios. They have also stated their view that common equity should be the dominant form of Tier 1 capital. As a result, regulators are now emphasizing the Tier 1 common capital ratio in their evaluation of bank holding company capital levels. We seek to manage our capital consistent with these regulatory principles, and believe that our March 31, 2013 capital levels were aligned with them.

Dodd-Frank requires the Federal Reserve Board to establish capital requirements that would, among other things, eliminate the Tier 1 treatment of trust preferred securities following a phase-in period expected to begin later this year. Accordingly, PNC has redeemed trust preferred securities and will consider redeeming others on or after their first call date, based on such considerations as dividend rates, future capital requirements, capital market conditions and other factors. See Note 14 Capital Securities of Subsidiary Trusts and Perpetual Trust Securities in Item 8 of our 2012 Form 10-K and Note 11 Capital Securities of Subsidiary Trusts and Perpetual Trust Securities and Note 20 Subsequent Events in the Notes To Consolidated Financial Statements in this Report for additional discussion of our trust preferred securities and completed or upcoming redemptions.

Our Tier 1 common capital ratio was 9.8% at March 31, 2013, compared with 9.6% at December 31, 2012. Our Tier 1 risk-based capital ratio remained consistent at 11.6% for both March 31, 2013 and December 31, 2012. Our total risk-based capital ratio increased 20 basis points to 14.9% at March 31, 2013 from 14.7% at December 31, 2012. These ratios were positively impacted by a net increase in retained earnings. The positive impacts on the Tier 1 risk-based capital and total risk-based capital ratios were partially offset by the redemption of trust preferred securities and announced call of the Series L preferred stock. Basel I risk-weighted assets increased $.7 billion from $260.8 billion at December 31, 2012 to $261.5 billion at March 31, 2013.

At March 31, 2013, PNC and PNC Bank, National Association (PNC Bank, N.A.), our domestic bank subsidiary, were both considered “well capitalized” based on US regulatory capital ratio requirements under Basel I. To qualify as “well-capitalized”, regulators currently require bank holding companies and banks to maintain capital ratios of at least 6% for Tier 1 risk-based, 10% for total risk-based, and 5% for leverage. We believe PNC and PNC Bank, N.A. will continue to meet these requirements during the remainder of 2013.

PNC and PNC Bank, N.A. entered the “parallel run” qualification phase under the Basel II capital framework on January 1, 2013. The Basel II framework, which was adopted by the Basel Committee on Banking Supervision in 2004, seeks to provide more risk-sensitive regulatory capital calculations and promote enhanced risk management practices among large, internationally active banking organizations. The U.S. banking agencies adopted final rules to implement the Basel II capital framework in December 2007 and in June 2012 requested comment on proposed modifications to these rules (collectively referred to as the “advanced approaches”). See Item 1 Business – Supervision and Regulation and Item 1A Risk Factors in our 2012 Form 10-K. Prior to fully implementing the advanced approaches to calculate risk-weighted assets, PNC and PNC Bank, N.A. must successfully complete a “parallel run” qualification phase. This phase must last at least four consecutive quarters, although, consistent with the experience of other U.S. banks, we currently anticipate a multi-year parallel run period.

We provide information below regarding PNC’s pro forma fully phased-in Basel III Tier 1 common capital ratio and how it differs from the Basel I Tier 1 common capital ratio as we expect the Basel III ratio to replace the current Basel I ratio for this regulatory metric when the applicable rules are finalized and fully implemented and PNC exits parallel run.

PNC’s pro forma Basel III Tier 1 common capital ratio was estimated without the benefit of phase-ins and is based on our current understanding of Basel III proposed rules. PNC utilizes this estimate to assess its Basel III capital position, including comparison to similar estimates made by other financial institutions. Tier 1 common capital as defined under the proposed Basel III rules differs materially from Basel I. Under Basel III, unconsolidated investments in financial institutions, mortgage servicing rights and deferred tax assets must be deducted from capital to the extent they individually exceed 10%, or in the aggregate exceed 15%, of the institution’s adjusted Tier 1 common capital. Also, Basel I regulatory capital excludes certain other comprehensive income related to both available for sale securities and pension and other postretirement plans, whereas under Basel III these items are a component of capital. Basel III risk-weighted assets were estimated under Basel II (including the modifications to the advanced approaches proposed under Basel III) and application of Basel II.5, and reflect credit, market and operational risk. This Basel III capital estimate is likely to be impacted by the finalization of the Basel III rules, further regulatory clarity relating to the capital rules, and the ongoing evolution, validation and regulatory approval of PNC’s models integral to the calculation of Basel II risk-weighted assets.

The access to and cost of funding for new business initiatives, the ability to undertake new business initiatives including acquisitions, the ability to engage in expanded business activities, the ability to pay dividends or repurchase shares or other capital instruments, the level of deposit insurance costs, and the level and nature of regulatory oversight depend, in large part, on a financial institution’s capital strength.

We provide additional information regarding enhanced capital requirements and some of their potential impacts on PNC in Item 1A Risk Factors included in our 2012 Form 10-K.

OFF-BALANCE SHEET ARRANGEMENTS AND VARIABLE INTEREST ENTITIES

We engage in a variety of activities that involve unconsolidated entities or that are otherwise not reflected in our Consolidated Balance Sheet that are generally referred to as “off-balance sheet arrangements.” Additional information on these types of activities is included in our 2012 Form 10-K and in the following sections of this Report:

   

Commitments, including contractual obligations and other commitments, included within the Risk Management section of this Financial Review,

   

Note 3 Loan Sale and Servicing Activities and Variable Interest Entities in the Notes To Consolidated Financial Statements,

   

Note 11 Capital Securities of Subsidiary Trusts and Perpetual Trust Securities in the Notes To Consolidated Financial Statements, and

   

Note 18 Commitments and Guarantees in the Notes To Consolidated Financial Statements.

PNC consolidates variable interest entities (VIEs) when we are deemed to be the primary beneficiary. The primary beneficiary of a VIE is determined to be the party that meets both of the following criteria: (i) has the power to make decisions that most significantly affect the economic performance of the VIE and (ii) has the obligation to absorb losses or the right to receive benefits that in either case could potentially be significant to the VIE.

A summary of VIEs, including those that we have consolidated and those in which we hold variable interests but have not consolidated into our financial statements, as of March 31, 2013 and December 31, 2012 is included in Note 3 of this Report.

TRUST PREFERRED SECURITIES AND REIT PREFERRED SECURITIES

We are subject to certain restrictions, including restrictions on dividend payments, in connection with $402 million in principal amount of outstanding junior subordinated debentures associated with $390 million of trust preferred securities that were issued by various subsidiary statutory trusts (both amounts as of March 31, 2013). Generally, if there is (i) an event of default under the debentures, (ii) PNC elects to defer interest on the debentures, (iii) PNC exercises its right to defer payments on the related trust preferred securities issued by the statutory trusts or (iv) there is a default under PNC’s guarantee of such payment obligations, as specified in the applicable governing documents, then PNC would be subject during the period of such default or deferral to restrictions on dividends and other provisions protecting the status of the debenture holders similar to or in some ways more restrictive than those potentially imposed under the Exchange Agreement with PNC Preferred Funding Trust II, as described in Note 14 Capital Securities of Subsidiary Trusts and Perpetual Trust Securities in our 2012 Form 10-K. See the Liquidity Risk Management portion of the Risk Management section of this Financial Review for additional information regarding our first quarter 2013 redemption of the REIT Preferred Securities issued by PNC Preferred Funding Trust III and additional discussion of redemptions of trust preferred securities.

 

 

FAIR VALUE MEASUREMENTS

In addition to the following, see Note 9 Fair Value in the Notes To Consolidated Financial Statements in Part I, Item 1 of this Report and in our 2012 Form 10-K for further information regarding fair value.

The following table summarizes the assets and liabilities measured at fair value at March 31, 2013 and December 31, 2012, respectively, and the portion of such assets and liabilities that are classified within Level 3 of the valuation hierarchy.

An instrument’s categorization within the hierarchy is based on the lowest level of input that is significant to the fair value measurement. PNC reviews and updates fair value hierarchy classifications quarterly. Changes from one quarter to the next related to the observability of inputs to a fair value measurement may result in a reclassification (transfer) of assets or liabilities between hierarchy levels. PNC’s policy is to recognize transfers in and transfers out as of the end of the reporting period. During the first three months of 2013, there were transfers of residential mortgage loans held for sale and loans from Level 2 to Level 3 of $3 million and $1 million, respectively, as a result of reduced market activity in the nonperforming residential mortgage sales market which reduced the observability of valuation inputs. Also during 2013, there were transfers out of Level 3 residential mortgage

loans held for sale and loans of $4 million and $4 million, respectively, primarily due to the transfer of residential mortgage loans held for sale and loans to OREO. In addition, there was approximately $11 million of Level 3 residential mortgage loans held for sale reclassified to Level 3 loans during the first three months of 2013 due to the loans being reclassified from held for sale loans to held in portfolio loans. This amount was included in Transfers out of Level 3 residential mortgage loans held for sale and Transfers into Level 3 loans within Table 90: Reconciliation of Level 3 Assets and Liabilities. In the comparable period of 2012, there were transfers of assets and liabilities from Level 2 to Level 3 of $460 million consisting of mortgage-backed available for sale securities transferred as a result of a ratings downgrade which reduced the observability of valuation inputs.

European entities are defined as supranational, sovereign, financial institutions and non-financial entities within the countries that comprise the European Union, European Union candidate countries and other European countries. Foreign exposure underwriting and approvals are centralized. PNC currently underwrites new foreign activities if the credit is generally associated with activities of its United States commercial customers, and, in the case of PNC Business Credit’s United Kingdom operations, transactions that are predominantly well collateralized by self liquidating assets such as receivables, inventories or, in limited situations, the borrower’s appraised value of certain fixed assets, such that

PNC is at minimal risk of loss. Formerly, PNC had underwritten foreign infrastructure leases supported by highly rated bank letters of credit and other collateral, U.S. Treasury securities and the underlying assets of the lease. Country exposures are monitored and reported on a regular basis. We actively monitor sovereign risk, banking system health, and market conditions and adjust limits as appropriate. We rely on information from internal and external sources, including international financial institutions, economists and analysts, industry trade organizations, rating agencies, econometric data analytical service providers and geopolitical news analysis services.

Among the regions and nations that PNC monitors, we have identified seven countries for which we are more closely monitoring their economic and financial situation. The basis for the increased monitoring includes, but is not limited to, sovereign debt burden, near term financing risk, political instability, GDP trends, balance of payments, market confidence, banking system distress and/or holdings of stressed sovereign debt. The countries identified are: Greece, Ireland, Italy, Portugal, Spain (collectively “GIIPS”), Belgium and France.

Direct exposure primarily consists of loans, leases, securities, derivatives, letters of credit and unfunded contractual commitments with European entities. As of March 31, 2013, the $2.0 billion of funded direct exposure (.67% of PNC’s total assets) primarily represented $650 million for cross-border leases in support of national infrastructure, which were supported by letters of credit and other collateral having trigger mechanisms that require replacement or collateral in the form of cash or United States Treasury or government securities, $586 million for United Kingdom foreign office loans and $68 million of securities issued by AAA-rated sovereigns. The comparable level of direct exposure outstanding at December 31, 2012 was $1.9 billion (.61% of PNC’s total assets), which primarily included $645 million for cross-border leases in support of national infrastructure, $600 million for United Kingdom foreign office loans and $168 million of securities issued by AAA-rated sovereigns.

The $491 million of unfunded direct exposure as of March 31, 2013 was largely comprised of $360 million for unfunded contractual commitments primarily for United Kingdom local office commitments to PNC Business Credit corporate customers on a secured basis or activities supporting our domestic customers export activities through the confirmation of trade letters of credit. Comparably, the $550 million of unfunded direct exposure as of December 31, 2012 was largely comprised of $449 million for unfunded contractual commitments primarily for United Kingdom local office commitments to PNC Business Credit corporate customers on a secured basis or activities supporting our domestic customers export activities through the confirmation of trade letters of credit.

We also track European financial exposures where our clients, primarily U.S. entities, appoint PNC as a letter of credit issuing bank and we elect to assume the joint probability of default risk. As of March 31, 2013 and December 31, 2012, PNC had $2.3 billion and $2.5 billion, respectively, of indirect exposure. For PNC to incur a loss in these indirect exposures, both the obligor and the financial counterparty participating bank would need to default. PNC assesses both the corporate customers and the participating banks for counterparty risk and where PNC has found that a participating bank exposes PNC to unacceptable risk, PNC will reject the participating bank as an acceptable counterparty and will ask the corporate customer to find an acceptable participating bank.

Direct and indirect exposure to entities in the GIIPS countries totaled $248 million as of March 31, 2013, of which $123 million was direct exposure for cross-border leases within Portugal, $67 million represented direct exposure for loans outstanding within Ireland and $37 million represented indirect exposure for letters of credit with strong underlying obligors, primarily U.S. entities, with participating banks in Ireland, Italy and Spain. The comparable amounts as of December 31, 2012 were total direct and indirect exposure of $241 million, consisting of $122 million of direct exposure for cross-border leases within Portugal, $67 million represented direct exposure for loans outstanding within Ireland and $31 million represented indirect exposure for letters of credit with strong underlying obligors, primarily U.S. entities, with participating banks in Ireland, Italy and Spain.

Direct and indirect exposure to entities in Belgium and France totaled $1.1 billion as of March 31, 2013. Direct exposure of $137 million primarily consisted of $69 million for cross-border leases within Belgium, $35 million for unfunded contractual commitments in France and $30 million of covered bonds issued by a financial institution in France. Indirect exposure was $927 million for letters of credit with strong underlying obligors, primarily U.S. entities, with creditworthy participant banks in France and Belgium. The comparable amounts as of December 31, 2012 were total direct and indirect exposure of $1.2 billion of which there was $138 million of direct exposure primarily consisting of $69 million for cross-border leases within Belgium, $35 million for unfunded contractual commitments in France and $30 million of covered bonds issued by a financial institution in France. Indirect exposure at December 31, 2012 was $1.1 billion for letters of credit with strong underlying obligors and creditworthy participant banks in France and Belgium.

BUSINESS SEGMENTS REVIEW

We have six reportable business segments:

   

Retail Banking

   

Corporate & Institutional Banking

   

Asset Management Group

   

Residential Mortgage Banking

   

BlackRock

   

Non-Strategic Assets Portfolio

Business segment results, including inter-segment revenues, and a description of each business are included in Note 19 Segment Reporting included in the Notes To Consolidated Financial Statements in Part I, Item 1 of this Report. Certain amounts included in this Financial Review differ from those amounts shown in Note 19 primarily due to the presentation in this Financial Review of business net interest revenue on a taxable-equivalent basis.

Results of individual businesses are presented based on our internal management reporting practices. There is no comprehensive, authoritative body of guidance for management accounting equivalent to GAAP; therefore, the financial results of our individual businesses are not necessarily comparable with similar information for any other company. We periodically refine our internal methodologies as management reporting practices are enhanced. To the extent practicable, retrospective application of new methodologies is made to prior period reportable business segment results and disclosures to create comparability to the current period presentation to reflect any such refinements.

Financial results are presented, to the extent practicable, as if each business operated on a stand-alone basis. Additionally, we have aggregated the results for corporate support functions within “Other” for financial reporting purposes.

Assets receive a funding charge and liabilities and capital receive a funding credit based on a transfer pricing methodology that incorporates product maturities, duration and other factors. A portion of capital is intended to cover unexpected losses and is assigned to our business segments using our risk-based economic capital model, including consideration of the goodwill and other intangible assets at those business segments, as well as the diversification of risk among the business segments.

We have allocated the allowances for loan and lease losses and for unfunded loan commitments and letters of credit based on our assessment of risk in each business segment’s loan portfolio. Key reserve assumptions and estimation processes react to and are influenced by observed changes in loan portfolio performance experience, the financial strength of the borrower, and economic conditions. Key reserve assumptions are periodically updated. Our allocation of the costs incurred by operations and other shared support areas not directly aligned with the businesses is primarily based on the use of services.

Total business segment financial results differ from total consolidated net income. The impact of these differences is reflected in the “Other” category. “Other” for purposes of this Business Segments Review and the Business Segment Highlights in the Executive Summary section of this Financial Review includes residual activities that do not meet the criteria for disclosure as a separate reportable business, such as gains or losses related to BlackRock transactions, integration costs, asset and liability management activities including net securities gains or losses, other-than-temporary impairment of investment securities and certain trading activities, exited businesses, private equity investments, intercompany eliminations, most corporate overhead, tax adjustments that are not allocated to business segments and differences between business segment performance reporting and financial statement reporting (GAAP), including the presentation of net income attributable to noncontrolling interests as the segments’ results exclude their portion of net income attributable to noncontrolling interests.

Retail Banking earned $120 million in the first quarter of 2013 compared with earnings of $147 million for the same period a year ago. The decrease in earnings resulted from higher noninterest expense and provision for credit losses, both attributable to the full quarter impact of the RBC Bank (USA) acquisition. Noninterest income was also higher compared with the first quarter of 2012 primarily due to increased debit and credit card transactions, brokerage activity and the RBC Bank (USA) acquisition.

Retail Banking’s core strategy is to efficiently grow consumer and small business checking households by providing an experience that builds customer loyalty and creates opportunities to sell our savings, loans, investment products and money management services. Net checking relationships grew 59,000 in the first three months of 2013. The growth reflects strong results and gains in all of our markets, as well as strong customer retention in the overall network. As customer preferences for convenience evolve, we continue to provide more cost effective alternate servicing channels. Non-branch deposits via ATM and mobile channels increased from 14% a year ago to 20% of the total deposits in the first quarter of 2013. Active online banking customers and active online bill payment customers increased by 11% and 9%, respectively, from a year ago.

Retail Banking’s footprint extends across 17 states and Washington, D.C., covering nearly half the U.S. population and serving 5,784,000 consumers and 750,000 small businesses with 2,856 branches and 7,303 ATMs. PNC consolidated 30 branches in the first quarter and has plans to close a total of approximately 200 branches in 2013. We will continue to invest selectively in new branches. This quarter five branches were opened.

Total revenue for the first three months of 2013 was $1.5 billion compared with $1.4 billion for the same period of 2012. Net interest income increased $4 million compared with the first three months of 2012. The increase resulted from higher organic loan and transaction deposit balances, lower rates paid on deposits, and the impact of the RBC Bank (USA) acquisition.

Noninterest income increased $43 million compared to the first three months of 2012. The increase was driven by higher volumes of customer debit card and credit card transactions, brokerage activity and the RBC Bank (USA) acquisition.

The provision for credit losses was $162 million in the first quarter of 2013 and net charge-offs were $250 million compared with $135 million and $191 million, respectively, for the same period in 2012. The increase in the provision for credit losses year over year is attributable to the impact of the RBC Bank (USA) acquisition. The increase in net charge-offs was due to the alignment with interagency guidance.

Noninterest expense increased $62 million in the first three months of 2013 compared to the same period of 2012. The increase was primarily attributable to the first three months of 2013 including a full quarter of operating expenses associated with RBC Bank (USA) acquisition.

Growing core checking deposits is key to Retail Banking’s growth and to providing a source of low-cost funding to PNC. The deposit product strategy of Retail Banking is to remain disciplined on pricing, target specific products and markets for growth, and focus on the retention and growth of balances for relationship customers. In the first three months of 2013, average total deposits of $133.4 billion increased $8.1 billion, or 6%, compared with the same period in 2012.

   

Average transaction deposits grew $12.1 billion, or 14%, and average savings deposit balances grew $1.5 billion, or 16%, compared with the first three months of 2012 as a result of organic deposit growth, continued customer preference for liquidity and the RBC Bank (USA) acquisition. In the first three months of 2013, compared with the same period a year ago, average demand deposits increased $7.5 billion, or 17%, to $51.9 billion, and average money market deposits increased $4.7 billion, or 11%, to $48.3 billion.

   

Total average certificates of deposit decreased $5.5 billion, or 19%, compared to the same period in 2012. The decline in average certificates of deposit was due to the run-off of maturing accounts partially offset by the impact of the RBC Bank (USA) acquisition.

Retail Banking continues to focus on a relationship-based lending strategy that targets specific products and markets for growth, small businesses and auto dealerships. In the first three months of 2013, average total loans were $65.5 billion, an increase of $4.4 billion, or 7%, over the same period in 2012.

   

Average indirect auto loans increased $2.6 billion, or 58%, over the first three months of 2012. The increase was primarily due to the expansion of our indirect sales force and product introduction to acquired markets, as well as overall increases in auto sales.

   

Average home equity loans increased $2.2 billion, or 8%, compared with the same period in 2012. The increase was due to the RBC Bank (USA) acquisition. The remainder of the portfolio was relatively flat as increases in term loans were offset by declines in lines of credit. Retail Banking’s home equity loan portfolio is relationship based, with 97% of the portfolio attributable to borrowers in our primary geographic footprint.

   

Average commercial and commercial real estate loans increased $608 million, or 6%, compared with the same period in 2012. The increase was due to the acquisition of RBC Bank (USA). The remainder of the portfolio showed a decline as loan demand was outpaced by paydowns, refinancings and charge-offs.

   

Average auto dealer floor plan loans grew $351 million, or 21%, compared with the first three months of 2012, primarily resulting from dealer line utilization and additional dealer relationships.

   

Average credit card balances increased $180 million, or 5%, compared with the same period of 2012 as a result of the portfolio purchase from RBC Bank (Georgia), National Association in March 2012.

   

Average education loans for the first three months of 2013 declined $1.2 billion, or 13%, compared with the same period in 2012. The decline was a result of run-off of the discontinued government guaranteed portfolio.

   

Average indirect other and residential mortgages in this segment are primarily run-off portfolios and declined $292 million and $220 million, respectively, compared with the same period in 2012. The indirect other portfolio is comprised of marine, RV and other indirect loan products.

Nonperforming assets totaled $1.3 billion in the first quarter of 2013, a 33% increase from a year ago. The increase was in consumer assets due to the alignment with interagency guidance.
