Jamie Dimon, Chairman and CEO, commented on the financial results: “JPMorgan Chase delivered solid results in a competitive environment this quarter with steady core growth across the platform. And for the first time, the Firm led the nation in total U.S. deposits, as consumers and businesses continue to view us as their partner of choice.”

Dimon added: “In Consumer & Community Banking, card sales and merchant processing volumes were once again up double digits, while loans and deposits continued to grow strongly. In the Corporate & Investment Bank, we continued to lead our peers in Investment Banking fees, and Treasury Services and Securities Services each generated over $1 billion in revenue. Commercial Banking again delivered outstanding performance with record revenue as our long-term investments in the business are paying off. Our Asset & Wealth Management business delivered strong results with record net income and AUM this quarter.”

Dimon concluded: “The global economy continues to do well and the U.S. consumer remains healthy with solid wage growth. Unfortunately, natural disasters in the U.S. and abroad have impacted many of our customers and we have responded with enormous financial support as well as the expertise and generosity of our employees to help these customers, clients and communities. Building on our success to-date in Detroit, we have announced new initiatives in Chicago and Washington, D.C. to drive inclusive economic growth in those communities. We will be there to do our part. And this is in addition to the $1.7 trillion of credit and capital supplied this year to consumers and small and mid-sized businesses and corporate clients.”

Discussion of Results:
Net income was $6.7 billion, an increase of 7%.
Net revenue was $26.2 billion, up 3%. Net interest income was $13.1 billion, up 10%, primarily driven by the net impact of rising rates and loan growth, partially offset by declines in Markets net interest income. Noninterest revenue was $13.1 billion, down 4%, driven by lower Markets revenue.
Noninterest expense was $14.3 billion, down 1%. The prior year included two items totaling $175 million in Consumer & Community Banking.
The provision for credit losses was $1.5 billion, up from $1.3 billion in the prior year. The increase reflected a net reserve build of $303 million in the Consumer portfolio, driven by Card, and higher net charge-offs of $148 million, partially offset by a net reserve release of $116 million in the Wholesale portfolio, primarily driven by Energy7 and Commercial Real Estate. The prior year included a net reserve build in the Consumer portfolio of $226 million and a net reserve release in the Wholesale portfolio of $76 million, primarily driven by Energy7.

JPMorgan Chase & Co.
News Release

Consumer & Business Banking net revenue was $5.4 billion, up 15%, predominantly driven by higher deposit margins and strong deposit growth. Mortgage Banking net revenue was $1.6 billion, down 17%, largely driven by lower net servicing revenue, loan spread compression, and lower production margins. Card, Commerce Solutions & Auto net revenue was $5.1 billion, up 7%, predominantly driven by higher auto lease volumes and net interest income on higher Card loan balances, partially offset by higher Card new account origination costs.
Noninterest expense was $6.5 billion, flat compared with the prior year. The prior year included two items totaling $175 million related to liabilities from a merchant in bankruptcy and mortgage servicing reserves. Excluding these two items, noninterest expense would have been up 3%, predominantly driven by higher auto lease depreciation and business growth, partially offset by lower marketing expense.
The provision for credit losses was $1.5 billion, an increase of $223 million, driven by higher net charge-offs, due to Card but partially offset by Mortgage, and a higher reserve build in Card. Net charge-offs included $63 million of incremental charge-offs reported in accordance with regulatory guidance8, predominantly in Auto.

Discussion of Results:
Net income was $2.5 billion, a decrease of 13%.
Net revenue was $8.6 billion, down 9% compared with the prior year. Banking revenue was $3.1 billion, up 5%. Investment Banking revenue was $1.7 billion, down 2%, driven by lower equity and debt underwriting fees, largely offset by higher advisory fees. The business continued to rank #1 in Global Investment Banking fees. Treasury Services revenue was $1.1 billion, up 15%, driven by the impact of higher interest rates and growth in operating deposits. Lending revenue was $331 million, up 17%, reflecting lower mark-to-market losses on hedges.
Markets & Investor Services revenue was $5.5 billion, down 16%, driven by lower Markets revenue, down 21%. Fixed Income Markets revenue was down 27%, as lower revenue across all products was driven by sustained low volatility and tighter credit spreads, against a very strong prior year. Equity Markets revenue was down 4% compared to a strong prior year, reflecting lower revenue in derivatives predominantly offset by strength in Prime Services and Cash Equities. Securities Services revenue was $1.0 billion, up 10%, driven by higher interest rates and deposit growth, as well as higher asset-based fees driven by improving market conditions.
Noninterest expense was $4.8 billion, down 3%, driven by lower compensation expense.
The provision for credit losses was a benefit of $26 million, which included a net reserve release in Energy7. The prior year was an expense of $67 million, which included a net reserve build in Energy7.

Notes on non-GAAP financial measures and key performance measures:
Notes on non-GAAP financial measures

a.
In addition to analyzing the Firm’s results on a reported basis, management reviews Firmwide results, including the overhead ratio, on a “managed” basis; these Firmwide managed basis results are considered non-GAAP financial measures. The Firm also reviews the results of the lines of business on a managed basis. The Firm’s definition of managed basis starts, in each case, with the reported U.S. GAAP results and includes certain reclassifications to present total net revenue for the Firm and each of the reportable business segments on a fully taxable-equivalent (“FTE”) basis. Accordingly, revenue from investments that receive tax credits and tax-exempt securities is presented in the managed results on a basis comparable to taxable investments and securities. These financial measures allow management to assess the comparability of revenue arising from both taxable and tax-exempt sources. The corresponding income tax impact related to tax-exempt items is recorded within income tax expense. These adjustments have no impact on net income as reported by the Firm as a whole or by the lines of business. For a reconciliation of the Firm’s results from a reported to managed basis, see page 7 of the Earnings Release Financial Supplement.

b.
Tangible common equity (“TCE”), return on tangible common equity (“ROTCE”) and tangible book value per share (“TBVPS”), are non-GAAP financial measures. TCE represents the Firm’s common stockholders’ equity (i.e., total stockholders’ equity less preferred stock) less goodwill and identifiable intangible assets (other than MSRs), net of related deferred tax liabilities. For a reconciliation from common stockholders’ equity to TCE, see page 9 of the Earnings Release Financial Supplement. ROTCE measures the Firm’s net income applicable to common equity as a percentage of average TCE. TBVPS represents the Firm’s TCE at period-end divided by common shares at period-end. Book value per share was $66.95, $66.05 and $63.79 at September 30, 2017, June 30, 2017, and September 30, 2016, respectively. TCE, ROTCE, and TBVPS are meaningful to the Firm, as well as investors and analysts, in assessing the Firm’s use of equity.

c.
Adjusted expense and adjusted overhead ratio are non-GAAP financial measures. Adjusted expense excluded Firmwide legal expense/(benefit) of $(107) million, $61 million and $(71) million for the three months ended September 30, 2017, June 30, 2017, and September 30, 2016, respectively. The adjusted overhead ratio measures the Firm’s adjusted expense as a percentage of adjusted managed net revenue. Management believes this information helps investors understand the effect of these items on reported results and provides an alternate presentation of the Firm’s performance.


Notes on key performance measures

d.
Estimated as of September 30, 2017. The Basel III supplementary leverage ratio (“SLR”), to which the Firm will be subject on January 1, 2018, and Basel III Fully Phased-In capital, risk-weighted assets and capital ratios, to which the Firm will be subject on January 1, 2019, are all considered key regulatory capital measures. The capital adequacy of the Firm is evaluated against the Basel III approach (Standardized or Advanced) that results, for each quarter, in the lower ratio (the “Collins Floor”). These measures are used by management, bank regulators, investors and analysts to assess and monitor the Firm’s capital position. For additional information on these measures, including the Collins Floor, see Capital Risk Management on pages 76-85 of the Firm’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2016 and pages 42-48 of the Firm's Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended June 30, 2017.

e.
Core loans represent loans considered central to the Firm’s ongoing businesses; core loans exclude loans classified as trading assets, runoff portfolios, discontinued portfolios and portfolios the Firm has an intent to exit.
