SECOND-QUARTER 2015 HIGHLIGHTS

  • Period-end loan balances, excluding those covered by City National's acquisition-related loss-sharing agreements with the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC), grew to a new record of $21.9 billion at June 30, 2015, up 19 percent from the year-ago period and up $1.0 billion, or 5 percent, from the first quarter of this year. Average second-quarter loan and lease balances grew to $21.3 billion, up 18 percent from the second quarter of last year.
  • Second-quarter deposit balances averaged $28.6 billion, up 10 percent from the second quarter of 2014. Average core deposits, which equal 98 percent of total balances, were up 10 percent from the second quarter of last year. Period-end deposit balances totaled $29.5 billion at June 30, 2015.
  • Trust and investment fee income grew to $58.5 million, up 7 percent from the second quarter of 2014. City National's assets under management totaled $47.7 billion, up 1 percent from the second quarter of 2014.
  • Excluding FDIC-covered loans, second-quarter 2015 results included a $10.0 million provision for loan and lease losses, which was driven predominantly by loan growth. The company recorded a $1.0 million reversal of allowance for loan and lease losses, excluding FDIC-covered loans, in the second quarter of 2014. City National remains appropriately reserved at 1.45 percent of total loans, excluding FDIC-covered loans, at June 30, 2015.
  • On May 27, 2015, City National shareholders overwhelmingly voted in favor of the merger agreement with Royal Bank of Canada (RBC) at a special meeting of stockholders held in Los Angeles. City National announced plans to merge with RBC on January 22, 2015.

"The very positive momentum and growth of City National continued with another very strong quarter of solid performance across our organization, marking 22 consecutive years of profit in every quarter," said Chairman and CEO Russell Goldsmith. "Loans and deposits grew at double-digit rates and reached all-time highs. In the second quarter alone, we added $1 billion in net new loans spread across the portfolio. The company continued to deliver solid net income growth even while investing in more people, products, technology and our pending merger. We added to our team of wealth advisors in New York, for example, and further strengthened our Northern California presence by opening a new commercial loan production office in Sacramento.

"City National also made good progress toward the completion of its merger with Royal Bank of Canada, which we expect to close later this year. It was particularly gratifying that 99.6 percent of the votes cast by City National shareholders were in favor of the merger, and that the merger has been endorsed by key community development organizations in the communities we serve. This compelling combination will create significant opportunities and enhanced capabilities for our clients, colleagues and local communities."

ASSETS

Total assets at June 30, 2015 grew to $33.8 billion, up 10 percent from the second quarter of 2014 and 3 percent higher than in the first quarter of 2015. The increases largely reflect higher loan balances.

NET INTEREST INCOME

Fully taxable-equivalent net interest income was $245.8 million in the second quarter of 2015, up 9 percent from the same period of 2014 and the first quarter of this year. Fully taxable-equivalent net interest income for the first half of 2015 was $470.6 million, up 9 percent from the year-ago period.

Deposits

Second-quarter deposit balances averaged $28.6 billion, up 10 percent from the year-ago period and 3 percent higher than in the first quarter of 2015. Average deposits for the first half of 2015 totaled $28.2 billion, up 10 percent from the first half of 2014. Period-end deposits totaled $29.5 billion, up 11 percent from June 30, 2014 and up 3 percent from March 31, 2015.

Second-quarter 2015 average noninterest-bearing deposits were up 17 percent from the same period of 2014 and 5 percent higher than in the first quarter of 2015. Average noninterest-bearing deposit balances in the first half of 2015 were up 16 percent from the same period last year.

Treasury Services deposit balances, which consist primarily of title, escrow and property management deposits, averaged $3.2 billion in the second quarter of 2015, up 13 percent from the same period of last year and up 7 percent from the first quarter of 2015. For the first six months of 2015, Treasury Services deposit balances averaged $3.1 billion, up 13 percent from the first half of 2014. The increases were due primarily to mortgage transaction activity, higher home purchase prices, an increase in 1031 Exchange transactions and the acquisition of new client relationships.

Loans

Second-quarter average loan balances, excluding FDIC-covered loans, were $21.3 billion, up 18 percent from the second quarter of 2014 and 4 percent higher than in the first quarter of 2015. For the first six months of 2015, City National's average loans, excluding FDIC-covered loans, were $20.8 billion, up 18 percent from the year-ago period. Period-end loan balances grew to a new record of $21.9 billion, up 19 percent from June 30, 2014 and up 5 percent from March 31, 2015.

Second-quarter average commercial loans were up 20 percent from the same period in 2014 and 4 percent higher than in the first quarter of 2015.

Average balances for commercial real estate mortgages were up 13 percent from the second quarter of 2014, and they increased 5 percent from the first quarter of 2015. Average balances for commercial real estate construction loans were up 98 percent from the second quarter of 2014 and 11 percent higher than in the first quarter of 2015.

Average balances for single-family residential mortgage loans were up 14 percent from the year-ago period and 4 percent higher than in the first quarter of 2015. The increase from the year-ago period largely reflects increased refinance and home-purchase activity.

Securities

Average securities for the second quarter of 2015 totaled $8.5 billion, down 2 percent from the second quarter of 2014 and down 7 percent from the first quarter of 2015. Total available-for-sale securities amounted to $4.9 billion at June 30, 2015, down from $5.3 billion at the end of the second quarter of 2014 and $5.2 billion at March 31, 2015.

The average duration of available-for-sale securities at June 30, 2015 was 1.9 years, compared to 2.2 years at June 30, 2014 and 1.8 years at March 31, 2015. The decrease from the year-ago period reflects a rotation from longer-duration to shorter-duration securities in the available-for-sale portfolio.

Net Interest Margin

City National's net interest margin in the second quarter of 2015 averaged 3.16 percent, compared with 2.99 percent in the first quarter of 2015. The increase was due primarily to a large interest recovery on a legacy loan, as well as higher income on covered loans that were paid off or fully charged off in the second quarter. For the first six months of 2015, City National's net interest margin averaged 3.08 percent, down from 3.12 percent in the previous year.

Second-quarter net interest income included $16.2 million from FDIC-covered loans that were repaid or charged off during the quarter. This compares with $18.7 million in the second quarter of 2014 and $8.4 million in the first quarter of 2015.

At June 30, 2015, City National's prime lending rate was 3.25 percent, unchanged from both June 30, 2014 and March 31, 2015.

COVERED ASSETS

Loans and other real-estate-owned (OREO) assets acquired in City National's FDIC‑assisted bank acquisitions totaled $437.3 million at the end of the second quarter of 2015, compared to $614.6 million at June 30, 2014 and $482.0 million at March 31, 2015.

In the second quarter of 2015, City National recorded a $4.2 million net impairment charge to reflect results of the quarterly update of cash-flow projections for the FDIC-covered loans. In the first quarter of 2015, the company recorded a $2.7 million net impairment. The second-quarter charge reflects a $1.1 million provision for losses on covered loans. In addition to the net impairment charge for the second quarter of 2015, the company recognized $8.7 million of other covered assets income, resulting in total net income of $4.5 million. This compares to total net expense of $1.3 million in the first quarter of this year.

City National updates cash-flow projections for covered loans on a quarterly basis. Due to the uncertainty in the future performance of the covered loans, additional impairments may be recognized in the future.

OREO assets acquired by City National in its FDIC-assisted bank acquisitions and subject to loss-sharing agreements totaled $11.3 million at June 30, 2015, compared to $17.9 million at the end of the second quarter of 2014 and $11.6 million at March 31, 2015.

NONINTEREST INCOME

Noninterest income was $112.9 million in the second quarter of 2015, up 12 percent from the second quarter of 2014 and 2 percent higher than in the first quarter of 2015. City National's noninterest income for the first half of 2015 was up 11 percent from the same period of 2014.

The increase in noninterest income from the second quarter of last year was due largely to lower FDIC loss-sharing expense and higher trust and investment fee income, which were offset in part by a lower net gain on the disposal of assets. Results for the second quarter of 2015 also reflect a $1.7 million net securities gain, compared with a $5.1 million net gain in the second quarter of 2014 and a $3.3 million net gain in the first quarter of this year.

In the second quarter of 2015, noninterest income accounted for 32 percent of City National's total revenue, compared to 32 percent in the second quarter of 2014 and 34 percent in the first quarter of 2015.

Wealth Management

City National's assets under management or administration totaled $61.1 billion as of June 30, 2015, down 7 percent from the same period of 2014 and 1 percent lower than in the first quarter of this year. The decrease from the year-ago period reflects the sale of City National's retirement services recordkeeping business to OneAmerica® Retirement Services LLC, which closed on September 1, 2014.

Assets under management totaled $47.7 billion as of June 30, 2015, up 1 percent from June 30, 2014 but down 1 percent from March 31, 2015.

Trust and investment fees were $58.5 million in the second quarter of 2015, up 7 percent from the second quarter of 2014 and 5 percent higher than in the first quarter of 2015. First-half 2015 trust and investment fee income was up 6 percent from the same period last year. The increases were due largely to asset inflows and market appreciation.

Second-quarter 2015 brokerage and mutual fund fees totaled $11.4 million, down 20 percent from the year-earlier period but up 8 percent from the first quarter of 2015. Second-quarter 2014 brokerage and mutual fund fees included the recognition of $3.8 million in performance fee income related to the merger of two mutual funds. Brokerage and mutual fund fee income was $22.0 million in the first six months of this year, down 9 percent from the first half of 2014.

Other Noninterest Income

Second-quarter income from cash management and deposit transaction fees was $12.9 million, up 6 percent from the second quarter of 2014 and up 2 percent from the first quarter of 2015. For the first six months of 2015, cash management and deposit transaction fee income was $25.5 million, up 6 percent from the first half of 2014. The year-over-year increases were due largely to increased client activity.

Fee income from foreign exchange services and letters of credit totaled $11.8 million in the second quarter of 2015, up 3 percent from the second quarter of 2014 and 10 percent higher than the first quarter of 2015. The increase from the first quarter was due primarily to increased client activity and the addition of new clients. First-half 2015 foreign exchange services and letters of credit fee income totaled $22.4 million, up 3 percent from the same period last year.

Other income was $26.0 million in the second quarter of 2015, up 25 percent from the second quarter of 2014 and 4 percent higher than the first quarter of 2015. The increase from the year-ago period was due primarily to increased income from client swap transactions, as well as higher credit card and interchange fees. Other income in the first half of this year was $50.9 million, up 32 percent from the year-ago period.

NONINTEREST EXPENSE

City National's second-quarter 2015 noninterest expense amounted to $231.7 million, up 5 percent from the second quarter of 2014 but down 1 percent from the first quarter of 2015. Noninterest expense for the first six months of 2015 amounted to $466.1 million, up 8 percent from the first half of last year. The increases from the year-ago periods largely reflect higher compensation costs and FDIC assessments, as well as an increase in depreciation and amortization expense related to fixed assets and software. Second-quarter 2015 results also included $2.2 million in transaction costs related to the RBC merger, compared to $3.2 million in the first quarter of this year.

1 Prior to Basel III becoming effective on January 1, 2015, Tier 1 common equity under Basel I was a non-GAAP measure. Refer to the supplementary attachment "Non-GAAP Financial Measures" for further discussion.

NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES
(unaudited)

(a) Return on average tangible common equity ratio (annualized)

Return on average tangible common equity is a non-GAAP financial measure that represents the return on average common equity excluding goodwill and other intangible assets and their related amortization expense. Management reviews this measure in evaluating the company's performance and believes that investors may find it useful to evaluate the return on average common equity without the impact of goodwill and other intangible assets. A reconciliation of the GAAP to non-GAAP measure is set forth below:

2015 2014
Second First Second

Return on average tangible common equity (A)/(B) 12.33% 11.58% 13.36%

(b) Tier 1 common equity to risk-weighted assets

Tier 1 common equity to risk-weighted assets ratio, also known as Tier 1 common ratio, was calculated by dividing (a) Tier 1 capital less non-common components including qualifying perpetual preferred stock and qualifying trust preferred securities by (b) risk-weighted assets. Tier 1 capital and risk-weighted assets were calculated in accordance with applicable bank regulatory guidelines under Basel I. This ratio is a non-GAAP measure that was used by investors, analysts and bank regulatory agencies to assess the capital position of financial services companies. Management reviewed this measure in evaluating the company's capital levels and has included this ratio in response to market participants' interest in the Tier 1 common equity to risk-weighted assets ratio. The Tier 1 common equity ratio under Basel I was replaced with the Common equity tier 1 capital ratio under Basel III, which became effective for City National on January 1, 2015.
