William A. Cooper
Thank you, Jason. First of all, I'd like to just give our condolences to the people of Boston for the terror they had to deal with. Makes all of this somewhat -- sound somewhat unimportant, but life does go on.
TCF reported income of $25.5 million for the quarter. It is compared to a loss last year of $308 million, which included a restructuring charge, if you all recall, of some $295 million.
Earnings per share were $0.16. That would compare to a core earnings of $0.08 last year, up 100% from prior year, before the balance sheet restructuring charge.
The net interest margin is 4.72%, up 58 basis points from the first quarter last year, largely reflects the benefit that we got from the restructuring, as well as the growth of strong margin assets.
Our pre-provision profit of $87.7 million is up 24% from last year, which shows a very strong improvement in core earnings.
Provision for credit loss is at $38 million. It's down 20% -- 21% from last year, showing what I will talk about more in a few minutes, a consistent improvement in our credit.
Over 60-day accruing delinquent loans decreased by $15.5 million; that's a 16% decrease. Nonaccrual loans and leases and other real estate owned decreased $61 million, which is a 13% decrease from a year ago. All -- those are all leading edges of credit showing consistent improvement.
Average loans and leases increased $792 million; that's a 5.5% increase from a year ago. And deposits increased $1.8 billion, which is a 14.5% increase from a year ago. All very core strong improvements.
Our revenue at $292 million was about flat with previous quarters. The revenue was impacted by the somewhat seasonal and lumpy nature of our fee income in our equipment finance area. It tends to go up and down quarter-by-quarter. There doesn't appear to be any real trend in that big change, and we would expect, on an annual basis, to see that number be more normalized. Seasonality of deposit account fees that the first quarter is usually the weakest quarter. But also, there's been a significant decrease in the number of transactions per account, as people appear to have cut back on their spending as a result of the fiscal crisis, the higher tax rates or what. We're not really sure what's caused it. We've seen it in our -- performance of our retailers as well, but there is something going on there in the first quarter relative to the buying transactions. And from a positive point of view, the sale of our consumer real estate loans and auto loans, which are reoccurring transactions that contribute to fee income.
The net interest margin was impacted by, as happening in all banks is the continuing very low interest rates, which is -- puts a margin compression on loans, as loans reprice, new loans come in at lower rates. And we had a higher amount of liquidity at the end of the quarter than we normally had, which has some impact on that number as well.
