In the second quarter, we generated $7.3 billion in earnings and delivered $7.9 billion back to shareholders. Our return on assets was over 120 basis points and our return on equity was well above the firm's cost of capital. "Our view of the economy reflects the activity by the one-in-two American households we serve, which points to a steadily growing economy. We see solid consumer activity across the board, with spending by Bank of America consumers up five percent this quarter over the second quarter of last year. "Our customers gave us more of their assets to handle for them. That includes an increase of $75 billion in deposits, with $37 billion from consumers. And customers gave us more of their investment dollar, as we reached $2.9 trillion in balances. This quarter, we also regained the leading U.S. market share in lending to the important small business economy. These customers continue to engage in solid activity to build their businesses. We also see consistent borrowing and activity from our commercial and corporate clients, who are well positioned to take advantage of opportunities that arise as trade and other open issues are resolved. Importantly, we have seen improvement in our investment banking market share as we have repositioned that business."

Commentary from Chief Financial Officer Paul M. Donofrio: “Diluted EPS grew seventeen percent from the year-ago quarter, aided in part by the repurchase of seven percent of our shares in the past twelve months as book value per share grew ten percent and capital and liquidity measures strengthened. We have recorded eighteen consecutive quarters of positive operating leverage while consistently making significant investments in the franchise. In the next twelve months, we plan to return $37 billion to shareholders through common dividends and share repurchases."

Endnotes A We also measure net interest income on an FTE basis, which is a non-GAAP financial measure. FTE basis is a performance measure used in operating the business that management believes provides investors a more accurate picture of the interest margin for comparative purposes. We believe that this presentation allows for comparison of amounts from both taxable and tax-exempt sources and is consistent with industry practices. Net interest income on an FTE basis was $12.3 billion, $12.5 billion and $12.0 billion for the three months ended June 30, 2019, March 31, 2019 and June 30, 2018, respectively. The FTE adjustment was $149 million, $153 million and $154 million for the three months ended June 30, 2019, March 31, 2019 and June 30, 2018, respectively. B Global Markets revenue and net income, excluding net debit valuation adjustments (DVA), and sales and trading revenue, excluding net DVA, are non- GAAP financial measures. Net DVA gains (losses) were $(31) million, $(90) million and $(179) million for the three months ended June 30, 2019, March 31, 2019 and June 30, 2018, respectively. FICC net DVA gains (losses) were $(30) million, $(79) million and $(184) million for the three months ended June 30, 2019, March 31, 2019 and June 30, 2018, respectively. Equities net DVA gains (losses) were $(1) million, $(11) million and $5 million for the three months ended June 30, 2019, March 31, 2019 and June 30, 2018, respectively. C Return on average tangible common shareholders’ equity is a non-GAAP financial measure. See page 18 of this press release for reconciliation to GAAP financial measures. D Global Liquidity Sources (GLS) include cash and high-quality, liquid, unencumbered securities, limited to U.S. government securities, U.S. agency securities, U.S. agency MBS, and a select group of non-U.S. government and supranational securities, and are readily available to meet funding requirements as they arise. They do not include Federal Reserve Discount Window or Federal Home Loan Bank borrowing capacity. Transfers of liquidity among legal entities may be subject to certain regulatory and other restrictions. E Regulatory capital ratios at June 30, 2019 are preliminary. We report regulatory capital ratios under both the Standardized and Advanced approaches. The approach that yields the lower ratio is used to assess capital adequacy, which for CET1 is the Standardized approach at June 30, 2019, March 31, 2019 and June 30, 2018. 10

We believe the use of ratios that utilize tangible equity provides additional useful information because they present measures of those assets that can generate income. Tangible book value per share provides additional useful information about the level of tangible assets in relation to outstanding shares of common stock. See Reconciliations to GAAP Financial Measures on page 18. (2) Ratios do not include loans accounted for under the fair value option. Charge-off ratios are annualized for the quarterly presentation. (3) Balances do not include past due consumer credit card loans, consumer loans secured by real estate where repayments are insured by the Federal Housing Administration and individually insured long-term stand-by agreements (fully insured home loans), and in general, other consumer and commercial loans not secured by real estate; purchased credit-impaired loans even though the customer may be contractually past due; and nonperforming loans held for sale or accounted for under the fair value option. (4) Regulatory capital ratios at June 30, 2019 are preliminary. Bank of America Corporation (the Corporation) reports regulatory capital ratios under both the Standardized and Advanced approaches. The approach that yields the lower ratio is used to assess capital adequacy, which for CET1 is the Standardized approach at June 30, 2019, March 31, 2019 and June 30, 2018. (5) Tangible equity ratio equals period-end tangible shareholders’ equity divided by period-end tangible assets. Tangible common equity ratio equals period-end tangible common shareholders’ equity divided by period-end tangible assets. Tangible shareholders’ equity and tangible assets are non-GAAP financial measures. We believe the use of ratios that utilize tangible equity provides additional useful information because they present measures of those assets that can generate income. See Reconciliations to GAAP Financial Measures on page 18. Current period information is preliminary and based on company data available at the time of the presentation.

18 Bank of America Corporation and Subsidiaries Reconciliations to GAAP Financial Measures (Dollars in millions, except per share information) The Corporation evaluates its business based on the following ratios that utilize tangible equity, a non-GAAP financial measure. Tangible equity represents an adjusted shareholders’ equity or common shareholders’ equity amount which has been reduced by goodwill and intangible assets (excluding mortgage servicing rights), net of related deferred tax liabilities. Return on average tangible common shareholders’ equity measures the Corporation’s net income applicable to common shareholders as a percentage of adjusted average common shareholders’ equity. The tangible common equity ratio represents adjusted ending common shareholders’ equity divided by total assets less goodwill and intangible assets (excluding mortgage servicing rights), net of related deferred tax liabilities. Return on average tangible shareholders’ equity measures the Corporation’s net income applicable to common shareholders as a percentage of adjusted average total shareholders’ equity. The tangible equity ratio represents adjusted ending shareholders’ equity divided by total assets less goodwill and intangible assets (excluding mortgage servicing rights), net of related deferred tax liabilities. Tangible book value per common share represents adjusted ending common shareholders’ equity divided by ending common shares outstanding. These measures are used to evaluate the Corporation’s use of equity. In addition, profitability, relationship and investment models all use return on average tangible shareholders’ equity as key measures to support our overall growth goals. See the tables below for reconciliations of these non-GAAP financial measures to the most closely related financial measures defined by GAAP for the six months ended June 30, 2019 and 2018 and the three months ended June 30, 2019, March 31, 2019 and June 30, 2018. The Corporation believes the use of these non-GAAP financial measures provides additional clarity in understanding its results of operations and trends. Other companies may define or calculate supplemental financial data differently.
