Non-GAAP Financial and Other Measures

In addition to financial measures based on generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP), management uses non-GAAP financial measures to assess the Bank’s underlying ongoing business performance. Non-GAAP financial measures presented throughout this document are referred to as “adjusted” measures and exclude amounts designated as adjusting items. Adjusting items include the amortization of acquisition-related intangible assets, and certain items of significance that arise from time to time which management believes are not reflective of underlying business performance. Non-GAAP financial measures are not standardized financial measures under the financial reporting framework used to prepare the financial statements of the Bank and might not be comparable to similar financial measures disclosed by other issuers. The Bank believes non-GAAP financial measures are useful to readers in obtaining a better understanding of how management assesses the Bank’s performance and in analyzing trends.

The following tables show a reconciliation of the non-GAAP financial measures to their most directly comparable financial measure that is disclosed in the primary financial statements of the Bank.

Consolidated Results

Three months ended July 31, 2022 financial performance

Net income was $55.9 million and diluted earnings per share were $1.18 for the third quarter of 2022, compared with net income of $62.1 million and diluted earnings per share of $1.32 for the third quarter of 2021. Adjusted net income was $58.2 million for the third quarter of 2022, compared with $59.0 million for the third quarter of 2021, and adjusted diluted earnings per share were $1.24, compared with $1.25 for the third quarter of 2021. Net income available to common shareholders included interest paid semi-annually on the limited recourse capital notes and quarterly dividends declared on the Preferred Shares Series 13 in the third quarter of 2022, whereas, in the third quarter of 2021, it included a partial initial interest charge on the limited recourse capital notes issued in May 2021, the quarterly dividend declared on the Preferred Shares Series 13 and a final dividend on the Preferred Shares Series 15.

Total revenue

Total revenue of $260.0 million for the third quarter of 2022 increased by 2% compared with $254.9 million for the third quarter of 2021.

Net interest income increased by $13.8 million or 8% to $188.5 million for the third quarter of 2022, compared with $174.7 million for the third quarter of 2021. The increase was mainly due to higher interest income stemming from commercial loans, partly offset by higher funding costs and lower mortgage pre-payment penalties. The net interest margin was 1.83% for the third quarter of 2022, a decrease of 3 basis points compared with the third quarter of 2021, mainly due to higher funding costs and lower mortgage pre-payment penalties.

Other income decreased by $8.7 million or 11% to $71.4 million for the third quarter of 2022, compared with $80.2 million for the third quarter of 2021. The decrease was mainly due to lower fees and securities brokerage commissions which decreased by $5.4 million compared with the strong revenues of the third quarter of 2021. Lower commissions from sales of mutual funds, resulting from the decline in equity markets, and lower lending fees also contributed to the decrease year-over-year, partly offset by higher foreign exchange revenues.

Provision for credit losses

The provision for credit losses was $16.6 million for the third quarter of 2022 compared with $5.4 million for the third quarter of 2021, an increase of $11.2 million, mainly as a result of higher provisions on performing loans due to less favourable forward-looking macro-economic scenarios and probability weights. Releases of allowances on performing loans had also been recorded in the third quarter of 2021. The provision for credit losses as a percentage of average loans and acceptances stood at 18 bps for the quarter, compared to 7 bps for the same quarter a year ago. Refer to the “Credit risk” section on pages 15 to 17 of the Bank's MD&A for the quarter ended July 31, 2022 and to Note 5 to the Condensed Interim Consolidated Financial Statements for more information on provision for credit losses and allowances for credit losses.

Non-interest expenses

Non-interest expenses amounted to $177.5 million for the third quarter of 2022, an increase of $7.2 million or 4% compared with the third quarter of 2021. Adjusted non-interest expenses amounted to $174.4 million for the third quarter of 2022, unchanged compared with the third quarter of 2021.

Salaries and employee benefits amounted to $100.1 million for the third quarter of 2022, an increase of $10.2 million compared with the third quarter of 2021, mostly due to a $7.1 million net gain on the settlement of pension plans resulting from annuity purchases in 2021, as well as higher headcount and salary base to close foundational gaps, improve the customer experience, and support growth.

Premises and technology costs were $44.2 million for the third quarter of 2022, a decrease of $5.0 million compared with the third quarter of 2021. The decrease mostly stems from lower amortization charges and rent expenses resulting from the strategic review and the impairment effected in the fourth quarter of 2021.

Other non-interest expenses were $33.2 million for the third quarter of 2022, an increase of $2.0 million compared with the third quarter of 2021, mainly resulting from higher advertising, business development and travel expenses.

Efficiency ratio

The efficiency ratio on a reported basis was 68.3% for the third quarter of 2022, compared with 66.8% for the third quarter of 2021. The increase year-over-year is a mainly the result of the increase in non-interest expenses, which had been favourably impacted in the third quarter of 2021 by the aforementioned net gain on the settlement of pension plans. The adjusted efficiency ratio was 67.1% for the third quarter of 2022, compared to 68.4% for the third quarter of 2021. The improvement year-over-year is a result of the increase in total revenue.

Income taxes

For the quarter ended July 31, 2022, income taxes were $10.0 million, and the effective tax rate was 15.2%. The lower effective tax rate, compared to the statutory rate, is attributed to a lower taxation level of income from foreign operations, as well as from the favourable effect of holding investments in Canadian securities that generate non-taxable dividend income and interest paid semi-annually on the limited recourse capital notes. For the quarter ended July 31, 2021, the income tax expense was $17.2 million, and the effective tax rate was 21.7%.

Financial Condition

As at July 31, 2022, total assets amounted to $49.8 billion, a 10% increase from $45.1 billion as at October 31, 2021, due to the higher level of both loans and liquid assets.

Liquid assets

As at July 31, 2022, liquid assets amounted to $11.9 billion, an increase of $1.9 billion compared with $9.9 billion as at October 31, 2021. Liquid assets is a supplementary financial measure and consist of cash, deposits with banks, securities and securities purchased under reverse repurchase agreements.

The Bank continues to prudently manage its level of liquid assets. The Bank's funding sources remain well diversified and sufficient to meet all liquidity requirements. Liquid assets represented 24% of total assets as at July 31, 2022, an increase of 2% since October 31, 2021.

Loans

Loans and bankers’ acceptances, net of allowances, stood at $36.4 billion as at July 31, 2022, an increase of $2.9 billion or 9% since October 31, 2021. During the first nine months of 2022, strong commercial loan growth was partly offset by a decrease in personal loans, while residential mortgage loans remained stable.

Commercial loans and acceptances amounted to $17.3 billion as at July 31, 2022, an increase of $3.2 billion or 23% since October 31, 2021. The increase resulted mainly from strong growth in both inventory financing and real estate lending, which increased by $1.8 billion and $1.2 billion respectively.

Personal loans of $3.4 billion as at July 31, 2022 decreased by $0.3 billion from October 31, 2021, mainly as a result of a decline in the investment loan portfolio.

Residential mortgage loans of $15.8 billion as at July 31, 2022 were stable compared with October 31, 2021. Compared with the prior quarter ended April 30, 2022, residential mortgage loans were up $0.2 billion or 1%. Throughout 2022, the Bank continued its efforts to improve its mortgage processes.

Deposits

Deposits increased by $3.7 billion or 16% to $26.7 billion as at July 31, 2022 compared with $23.0 billion as at October 31, 2021. Personal deposits stood at $21.3 billion as at July 31, 2022, up $3.2 billion compared with October 31, 2021 mostly due to deepening and expanding relationships with advisors and brokers which led to higher personal notice and demand deposits, as well as term deposits. Personal deposits represented 80% of total deposits as at July 31, 2022, in line with October 31, 2021, and contributed to the Bank's good liquidity position. Business and other deposits increased by $0.5 billion over the same period to $5.3 billion, due to an increase in wholesale funding which included a $0.3 billion issuance of covered bonds in April 2022.

Debt related to securitization activities

Debt related to securitization activities increased by $0.3 billion or 3% compared with October 31, 2021 and stood at $11.6 billion as at July 31, 2022. Since the beginning of the year, mortgage loan securitization through the CMHC programs, supplemented by other secured funding, more than offset maturities of liabilities related to the Canada Mortgage Bond program, as well as normal repayments.

Subordinated debt

Subordinated debt stood at $339.3 million as at July 31, 2022, compared with $349.8 million as at October 31, 2021, as the issuance on March 25, 2022 of $350.0 million of notes maturing in June 2032 was offset by the early redemption on June 22, 2022 of the notes maturing in June 2027. Subordinated debt is an integral part of the Bank’s regulatory capital and affords its depositors additional protection.

Shareholders’ equity and regulatory capital

Shareholders’ equity amounted to $2,726.8 million as at July 31, 2022, compared with $2,640.9 million as at October 31, 2021.

Compared to October 31, 2021, retained earnings increased by $95.8 million, mainly as a result of the net income contribution of $170.9 million, partly offset by dividends. The Bank also repurchased 401,200 common shares under its Normal Course Issuer Bid, which reduced common shares by $10.8 million and retained earnings by $6.4 million in the first nine months of 2022. For additional information, please refer to the Capital Management section of the Bank's MD&A and to the Consolidated Statement of Changes in Shareholders' Equity for the period ended July 31, 2022.

The Bank’s book value per common share was $56.70 as at July 31, 2022 compared to $53.99 as at October 31, 2021.

The Common Equity Tier 1 capital ratio stood at 9.1% as at July 31, 2022, compared with 10.2% as at October 31, 2021 and 9.3% as at April 30, 2022, in excess of the minimum regulatory requirement and the Bank's target management levels. The decrease since the beginning of the year mainly results from growth in risk-weighted assets, partly offset by internal capital generation. This level of capital provides the necessary flexibility to support the Bank's strategic plan.

On August 30, 2022, the Board of Directors declared a quarterly dividend of $0.45 per common share, payable on November 1, 2022 to shareholders of record on October 3, 2022. This quarterly dividend is equal to the dividend declared in the previous quarter and 13% higher compared with the dividend declared in the previous year. The Board also determined that shares attributed under the Bank’s Shareholder Dividend Reinvestment and Share Purchase Plan will be made in common shares issued from Corporate Treasury with a 2% discount.
