SAN FRANCISCO July 14, 2020 – Wells Fargo & Company (NYSE:WFC) reported a net loss of $2.4 billion, or $0.66 per diluted common share, for second quarter 2020, compared with net income of $6.2 billion, or $1.30 per share, for second quarter 2019, and $653 million, or $0.01 per share, for first quarter 2020.
The Company also announced that it expects to reduce its third quarter 2020 common stock dividend to $0.10 per share from $0.51 per share, subject to approval by the Company's Board of Directors at the customary time at the end of July.
Chief Executive Officer Charlie Scharf said, “We are extremely disappointed in both our second quarter results and our intent to reduce our dividend. Our view of the length and severity of the economic downturn has deteriorated considerably from the assumptions used last quarter, which drove the $8.4 billion addition to our credit loss reserve in the second quarter. While the negative impact of the pandemic is unprecedented and many of our business drivers were negatively impacted, our franchise should perform better, and we will make changes to improve our performance regardless of the operating environment.
“Though our income performance was weak, our capital and liquidity continues to be extremely strong with both our CET1 ratio and LCR increasing from the end of the prior quarter. However, it is critical in these uncertain times that our common stock dividend reflects current earnings capacity assuming a continued difficult operating environment, evolving regulatory guidance, and protects our capital position if economic conditions were to further deteriorate. Given this, we believe it is prudent to be extremely cautious until we see a clear path to broad economic

improvement. We are confident that this eventual economic improvement combined with our actions to increase our margins will support a higher dividend in the future,” Scharf added.
“I’m proud of the hard work and dedication of our employees through these challenging times to support our customers, communities, and each other. Our regulatory commitments remain our top priority and while we have more work ahead of us, we continue to devote all necessary resources to this effort,” Scharf concluded.
Chief Financial Officer John Shrewsberry said, “Wells Fargo reported a $2.4 billion net loss in the second quarter and a diluted loss per share of $0.66. In addition to the higher reserve, net interest income declined linked quarter primarily due to the impact of significantly lower market interest rates. Our second quarter results also included $1.2 billion of operating losses, primarily due to customer remediation accruals. Additionally, we had higher personnel and occupancy expense due to COVID-19. With respect to the balance sheet, loans declined as commercial customers paid down loans that were drawn late in the first quarter during the market turbulence at the outset of the pandemic, while consumer deposit balances increased reflecting unprecedented government stimulus programs, lower spending, and customers’ preferences for liquidity.”
Net Interest Income
Net interest income in the second quarter was $9.9 billion, down $1.4 billion from first quarter 2020; and the net interest margin was 2.25%, down 33 basis points from the prior quarter. These results were due to balance sheet repricing driven by the impact of the lower interest rate environment, less favorable hedge ineffectiveness accounting results, and higher mortgage-backed securities (MBS) premium amortization, partially offset by a shift to a lower-cost mix of funding.
Noninterest Income
Noninterest income in the second quarter was $8.0 billion, up $1.6 billion from first quarter 2020. Second quarter noninterest income included higher market sensitive revenue3, partially offset by lower other income, service charges on deposit accounts, and trust and investment fees.
Service charges on deposit accounts were $930 million, down from $1.2 billion in first quarter 2020, due to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, which resulted in reduced debit card transaction volume and higher fee waivers, as well as customers carrying higher average balances.
Trust and investment fees were $3.4 billion, down from $3.6 billion in first quarter 2020, driven by lower asset-based fees on retail brokerage advisory assets reflecting lower market valuations at March 31, 2020, partially offset by higher investment banking revenue.
Mortgage banking income was $317 million, down from $379 million in first quarter 2020. The decline in mortgage banking income reflected a lower valuation of our mortgage servicing rights asset as a result of assumption updates, including higher prepayment assumptions and higher expected servicing costs due to higher projected defaults. Additionally, net servicing fees were lower due to payment deferrals and fee waivers instituted in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. These declines were partially offset by higher net gains on mortgage loan production activities. The production margin on residential held-for-sale mortgage loan

originations4 increased to 2.04% from 1.08% in the first quarter. Residential held-for-sale mortgage loan originations increased in the second quarter to $43 billion from $33 billion in the first quarter, primarily due to lower mortgage loan interest rates in the second quarter.
Market sensitive revenue3 was $1.6 billion, up from a loss of $(1.1) billion in first quarter 2020, predominantly due to a $1.9 billion increase in net gains from equity securities, which included $967 million of higher deferred compensation plan investment results (largely offset by higher employee benefits expense) and an $844 million decrease in impairment of securities from a first quarter that included $950 million of impairments. Additionally, net gains on trading activities increased $743 million on strong fixed income trading results.
Other income was $97 million, down $370 million from the prior quarter. Second quarter 2020 included a $261 million gain from the sale of $469 million of residential mortgage loans. First quarter 2020 included a $463 million gain from the sale of $709 million of residential mortgage loans.

Noninterest Expense
Noninterest expense in the second quarter was $14.6 billion, up $1.5 billion from the prior quarter. Operating losses in the second quarter increased $755 million from the first quarter on increased customer remediation accruals for a variety of matters and higher litigation accruals. Higher personnel expense in the second quarter included $947 million of higher deferred compensation expense (largely offset in revenue by higher net gains from equity securities), as well as COVID-19 related expense including additional payments to front-line employees and back-up childcare expense. The increase in personnel expense was partially offset by seasonally lower payroll tax and 401(k) expense and lower commission expense on lower revenue. In addition, occupancy expense increased $156 million from first quarter 2020 and included higher cleaning costs due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Technology and equipment, travel and entertainment, and advertising and promotion expense all declined compared with the prior quarter.
Income Taxes
The Company’s effective income tax rate was 62.2% for second quarter 2020, reflecting the impact of annual income tax benefits, primarily tax credits, driven by the reported pre-tax loss, and included net discrete income tax benefits of $98 million predominantly related to the resolution of prior period U.S. federal income tax matters. The effective income tax rate in first quarter 2020 was 19.5% and included net discrete income tax expense of $141 million driven by the accounting for stock compensation activity, the net impact of accounting for uncertain tax positions, and the outcome of U.S. federal income tax examinations. The Company currently expects the effective income tax rate for the remainder of 2020 to be approximately 26%, excluding the impact of discrete items.
Loans
Average loans were $971.3 billion in the second quarter, up $6.2 billion from the first quarter. Period-end loan balances were $935.2 billion at June 30, 2020, down $74.7 billion from March 31, 2020. Commercial loans were down $54.5 billion compared with March 31, 2020, predominantly due to a $54.9 billion decline in commercial and industrial loans driven by repayment of revolving lines that were drawn in March at the outset of the COVID-19 pandemic. Consumer loans decreased $20.1 billion from the prior quarter driven by a $16.7 billion decrease in real

estate 1-4 family first and junior lien mortgage loans, as originations and draws of existing lines were more than offset by paydowns and a reclassification of $10.4 billion to held for sale, as well as a $2.6 billion decrease in credit card loans.

Debt and Equity Securities
Debt securities include available-for-sale and held-to-maturity debt securities, as well as debt securities held for trading. Period-end debt securities were $472.6 billion at June 30, 2020, down $29.0 billion from the first quarter driven by a $23.2 billion decrease in debt securities available-for-sale and held-to-maturity, as purchases of approximately $16.8 billion, largely federal agency MBS, were more than offset by runoff and sales.
Net unrealized gains on available-for-sale debt securities were $4.4 billion at June 30, 2020, compared with $3.0 billion at March 31, 2020, predominantly due to tighter credit spreads.
Equity securities include marketable and nonmarketable equity securities, as well as equity securities held for trading. Period-end equity securities were $52.5 billion at June 30, 2020, down $1.6 billion from the first quarter.
Deposits
Period-end deposits were $1.4 trillion at June 30, 2020, up $34.2 billion from March 31, 2020. Total average deposits for second quarter 2020 were $1.4 trillion, up $48.7 billion from the prior quarter driven by growth in consumer deposits, partially offset by a decline in commercial deposits. The average deposit cost for second quarter 2020 was 17 basis points, down 35 basis points from the prior quarter and down 53 basis points from a year ago.
Capital
The Company's CET1 ratio was 10.9%2 and continued to exceed both the regulatory minimum of 9% and our current internal target of 10%. In second quarter 2020, the Company elected to apply a modified transition provision issued by federal banking regulators in March 2020 related to the impact of the current expected credit loss (CECL) accounting standard on regulatory capital. The impact of the CECL transition provision on our regulatory capital at June 30, 2020, was an increase in capital of $1.9 billion and an increase in the CET1 ratio of 14 basis points.
The Company expects to decrease its third quarter 2020 common stock dividend to $0.10 per share from $0.51 per share, subject to approval by the Company's Board of Directors at the customary time at the end of July.
On June 25, 2020, the FRB released the results of the 2020 Dodd-Frank stress test and related CCAR. The Company expects its SCB to be 2.5%, the lowest possible SCB, which will keep the regulatory minimum for our CET1 ratio at 9%.

Net Loan Charge-offs
The quarterly loss rate as a percentage of average loans in the second quarter was 0.46% (annualized), up from 0.38% in the prior quarter and 0.28% a year ago. Commercial and consumer losses were 0.44% and 0.48%, respectively. Total credit losses were $1.1 billion in second quarter 2020, up $204 million from first quarter 2020. Commercial losses increased $278 million driven by continued weakness in the oil and gas portfolio and higher losses in commercial real estate, as the effect of the COVID-19 pandemic on market conditions impacted our customers.

Nonperforming Assets
Nonperforming assets increased $1.4 billion, or 22%, from first quarter 2020 to $7.8 billion, and nonaccrual loans increased $1.4 billion from first quarter 2020 to $7.6 billion predominantly due to a $1.4 billion increase in commercial nonaccrual loans driven by the oil and gas and commercial real estate portfolios. Consumer nonaccrual loans increased $39 million driven by the residential real estate and automobile portfolios.

Allowance for Credit Losses for Loans
At June 30, 2020, the allowance for credit losses (ACL) for loans, including the allowance for unfunded commitments, totaled $20.4 billion, up $8.4 billion from March 31, 2020. The increase in the ACL reflects forecasted credit deterioration due to the COVID-19 pandemic, including a $6.4 billion increase for commercial loans, mainly in the commercial real estate and commercial and industrial portfolios, and a $2.0 billion increase for consumer loans, mainly in the residential real estate portfolio. The allowance coverage for total loans was 2.19%, compared with 1.19% in first quarter 2020. The allowance covered 4.6 times annualized second quarter net charge-offs, compared with 3.3 times in the prior quarter. The allowance coverage for nonaccrual loans was 269% at June 30, 2020, compared with 195% at March 31, 2020.

Business Segment Performance
Wells Fargo defines its operating segments by product type and customer segment. On February 11, 2020, we announced a new organizational structure with five principal lines of business: Consumer and Small Business Banking; Consumer Lending; Commercial Banking; Corporate and Investment Banking; and Wealth and Investment Management. This new organizational structure is intended to help drive operating, control, and business performance. The Company is currently in the process of transitioning to this new organizational structure, including aligning management reporting and allocation methodologies. These changes will not impact the consolidated financial results of the Company, but are expected to result in changes to our operating segments. We plan to update our operating segment disclosures, including comparative financial results, in third quarter 2020 when the Company is managed in accordance with the new organizational structure.

Segment net income (loss) for each of the three current business segments was:

Second Quarter 2020 vs. First Quarter 2020
Net loss of $331 million, down from net income of $155 million
Revenue of $8.8 billion, down $730 million, or 8%, driven by lower net interest income, service charges on deposit accounts, mortgage banking revenue, card fees, trust and investment fees, and lower gains from the sale of residential mortgage loans, partially offset by higher market sensitive revenue3 including higher deferred compensation plan investment results (largely offset by higher employee benefits expense)
Noninterest expense of $8.3 billion increased $1.2 billion, or 17%, driven by higher operating losses reflecting increased customer remediation accruals for a variety of matters, and higher personnel expense reflecting increased benefits expense related to the COVID-19 pandemic and increased deferred compensation expense (largely offset in revenue by higher net gains from equity securities). The increase in noninterest expense was partially offset by lower travel and entertainment, advertising and promotion, and technology and equipment expense
Provision for credit losses increased $1.7 billion to $3.4 billion, predominantly due to a $2.8 billion increase in the allowance for credit losses in second quarter 2020 driven by current and forecasted economic conditions due to the COVID-19 pandemic

Second Quarter 2020 vs. Second Quarter 2019
Net loss of $331 million, down from net income of $3.1 billion
Revenue decreased $3.0 billion, or 26%, driven by lower net interest income, mortgage banking revenue, service charges on deposit accounts, card fees, trust and investment fees, and lower gains from the sale of residential mortgage loans, partially offset by higher market sensitive revenue3 reflecting higher deferred compensation plan investment results (largely offset by higher employee benefits expense)
Noninterest expense increased $1.1 billion, or 16%, largely due to higher operating losses reflecting increased customer remediation accruals for a variety of matters, and higher personnel expense due to increased salary and benefits expense related to the COVID-19 pandemic, as well as increased deferred compensation expense (largely offset in revenue by higher net gains from equity securities). The increase in noninterest expense was partially offset by lower advertising and promotion, and travel and entertainment expense
Provision for credit losses increased $2.9 billion, predominantly due to a $2.8 billion increase in the allowance for credit losses in second quarter 2020 driven by current and forecasted economic conditions due to the COVID-19 pandemic

Forward-Looking Statements
This document contains forward-looking statements. In addition, we may make forward-looking statements in our other documents filed or furnished with the SEC, and our management may make forward-looking statements orally to analysts, investors, representatives of the media and others. Forward-looking statements can be identified by words such as “anticipates,” “intends,” “plans,” “seeks,” “believes,” “estimates,” “expects,” “target,” “projects,” “outlook,” “forecast,” “will,” “may,” “could,” “should,” “can” and similar references to future periods. In particular, forward-looking statements include, but are not limited to, statements we make about: (i) the future operating or financial performance of the Company, including our outlook for future growth; (ii) our noninterest expense and efficiency ratio; (iii) future credit quality and performance, including our expectations regarding future loan losses and our allowance for credit losses; (iv) the appropriateness of the allowance for credit losses; (v) our expectations regarding net interest income and net interest margin; (vi) loan growth or the reduction or mitigation of risk in our loan portfolios; (vii) future capital or liquidity levels, ratios or targets; (viii) the performance of our mortgage business and any related exposures; (ix) the expected outcome and impact of legal, regulatory and legislative developments, as well as our expectations regarding compliance therewith; (x) future common stock dividends, common share repurchases and other uses of capital; (xi) our targeted range for return on assets, return on equity, and return on tangible common equity; (xii) expectations regarding our effective income tax rate; (xiii) the outcome of contingencies, such as legal proceedings; and (xiv) the Company’s plans, objectives and strategies.
Forward-looking statements are not based on historical facts but instead represent our current expectations and assumptions regarding our business, the economy and other future conditions. Because forward-looking statements relate to the future, they are subject to inherent uncertainties, risks and changes in circumstances that are difficult to predict. Our actual results may differ materially from those contemplated by the forward-looking statements. We caution you, therefore, against relying on any of these forward-looking statements. They are neither statements of historical fact nor guarantees or assurances of future performance. While there is no assurance that any list of risks and uncertainties or risk factors is complete, important factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from those in the forward-looking statements include the following, without limitation: 
current and future economic and market conditions, including the effects of declines in housing prices, high unemployment rates, U.S. fiscal debt, budget and tax matters, geopolitical matters, and any slowdown in global economic growth;
the effect of the COVID-19 pandemic, including on our credit quality and business operations, as well as its impact on general economic and financial market conditions;
our capital and liquidity requirements (including under regulatory capital standards, such as the Basel III capital standards) and our ability to generate capital internally or raise capital on favorable terms;
financial services reform and other current, pending or future legislation or regulation that could have a negative effect on our revenue and businesses, including the Dodd-Frank Act and other legislation and regulation relating to bank products and services;
developments in our mortgage banking business, including the extent of the success of our mortgage loan modification efforts, the amount of mortgage loan repurchase demands that we receive, any negative effects relating to our mortgage servicing, loan modification or foreclosure practices, and the effects of regulatory or judicial requirements or guidance impacting our mortgage banking business and any changes in industry standards;
our ability to realize any efficiency ratio or expense target as part of our expense management initiatives, including as a result of business and economic cyclicality, seasonality, changes in our business composition and operating environment, growth in our businesses and/or acquisitions, and unexpected expenses relating to, among other things, litigation and regulatory matters;
the effect of the current interest rate environment or changes in interest rates or in the level or composition of our assets or liabilities on our net interest income, net interest margin and our mortgage originations, mortgage servicing rights and mortgage loans held for sale;
significant turbulence or a disruption in the capital or financial markets, which could result in, among other things, reduced investor demand for mortgage loans, a reduction in the availability of funding or increased funding costs, and declines in asset values and/or recognition of impairments of securities held in our debt securities and equity securities portfolios;



- 14 -

the effect of a fall in stock market prices on our investment banking business and our fee income from our brokerage, asset and wealth management businesses;
negative effects from the retail banking sales practices matter and from other instances where customers may have experienced financial harm, including on our legal, operational and compliance costs, our ability to engage in certain business activities or offer certain products or services, our ability to keep and attract customers, our ability to attract and retain qualified team members, and our reputation;
resolution of regulatory matters, litigation, or other legal actions, which may result in, among other things, additional costs, fines, penalties, restrictions on our business activities, reputational harm, or other adverse consequences;
a failure in or breach of our operational or security systems or infrastructure, or those of our third-party vendors or other service providers, including as a result of cyber attacks;
the effect of changes in the level of checking or savings account deposits on our funding costs and net interest margin;
fiscal and monetary policies of the Federal Reserve Board;
changes to U.S. tax guidance and regulations, as well as the effect of discrete items on our effective income tax rate;
our ability to develop and execute effective business plans and strategies; and
the other risk factors and uncertainties described under “Risk Factors” in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2019 and in our Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended March 31, 2020.
In addition to the above factors, we also caution that the amount and timing of any future common stock dividends or repurchases will depend on the earnings, cash requirements and financial condition of the Company, market conditions, capital requirements (including under Basel capital standards), common stock issuance requirements, applicable law and regulations (including federal securities laws and federal banking regulations), and other factors deemed relevant by the Company’s Board of Directors, and may be subject to regulatory approval or conditions.
For more information about factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from our expectations, refer to our reports filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission, including the discussion under “Risk Factors” in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2019 and in our Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended March 31, 2020, as filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission and available on its website at www.sec.gov.
Any forward-looking statement made by us speaks only as of the date on which it is made. Factors or events that could cause our actual results to differ may emerge from time to time, and it is not possible for us to predict all of them. We undertake no obligation to publicly update any forward-looking statement, whether as a result of new information, future developments or otherwise, except as may be required by law.

Forward-looking Non-GAAP Financial Measures. From time to time management may discuss forward-looking non-GAAP financial measures, such as forward-looking estimates or targets for return on average tangible common equity. We are unable to provide a reconciliation of forward-looking non-GAAP financial measures to their most directly comparable GAAP financial measures because we are unable to provide, without unreasonable effort, a meaningful or accurate calculation or estimation of amounts that would be necessary for the reconciliation due to the complexity and inherent difficulty in forecasting and quantifying future amounts or when they may occur. Such unavailable information could be significant to future results.

Tangible common equity, return on average tangible common equity, and tangible book value per common share are non-GAAP financial measures. For additional information, including a corresponding reconciliation to GAAP financial measures, see the “Tangible Common Equity” tables on page 37.
(2)
The efficiency ratio is noninterest expense divided by total revenue (net interest income and noninterest income).
(3)
Pre-tax pre-provision profit (PTPP) is total revenue less noninterest expense. Management believes that PTPP is a useful financial measure because it enables investors and others to assess the Company’s ability to generate capital to cover credit losses through a credit cycle.
(4)
In second quarter 2020, diluted average common shares outstanding equaled average common shares outstanding because our securities convertible into common shares had an anti-dilutive effect.
(5)
Consumer and small business banking deposits are total deposits excluding mortgage escrow and wholesale deposits.
(6)
Book value per common share is common stockholders' equity divided by common shares outstanding. Tangible book value per common share is tangible common equity divided by common shares outstanding.

(1)
In second quarter 2020, insurance income was moved to other noninterest income, personnel-related expenses were combined into a single line item, and expenses for cloud computing services were moved from contract services expense to technology and equipment expense. Prior period balances have been revised to conform with the current period presentation.
(2)
In second quarter 2020, diluted earnings per common share equaled earnings per common share because our securities convertible into common shares had an anti-dilutive effect.
