Second quarter results included an unfavourable adjustment to taxes of $2.0 million due to Ontario tax rate changes announced earlier this year and substantively enacted during the quarter. Excluding this tax adjustment, net income for the quarter was $55.2 million representing an increase of 14.5% over 2011 second quarter net income of $48.2 million, and 5.1% (or 20.4% annualized) over first quarter of 2012 net income of $52.5 million. Net income of $107.8 million, excluding the tax adjustment, for the six months ending June 30, 2012 increased 17.9% over the $91.4 million recorded in the same period last year. Including the tax adjustment net income is up 15.7% year over year.  These results put the Company solidly within the 13%-18% net income growth target for 2012.Diluted earnings per share were $1.54 for the quarter and $3.07 for the first six months of 2012 representing increases of 11.6% and 17.2% from $1.38 and $2.62 of the respective periods of 2011. Excluding the tax adjustment, diluted earnings per share were $1.60 for the quarter and $3.13 for the first six months of 2012 representing increases of 15.9% and 19.5% over the respective periods of 2011. Diluted earnings per share for the second quarter, excluding the tax adjustment, also increased by 5.3% from $1.52 diluted earnings per share in the first quarter of 2012.Net interest income reached record levels of $93.9 million in the second quarter, increasing 15.4% over the $81.3 million recorded in the second quarter of 2011 and 6.4% over the $88.2 million earned last quarter, reflecting solid loan growth and strong demand for the Company's products.Net interest margin (TEB) rose to 2.09% in the second quarter from 2.06% in the second quarter of 2011 and 2.02% in the first quarter of 2012, primarily due to the benefit of the rebalancing of the portfolio towards the higher yielding traditional mortgage portfolio.  On a year to date basis, net interest margin (TEB) increased to 2.05% compared to 2.03% in the same period last year.  Net interest margin (TEB) on non-securitized assets was 3.05% compared to 3.04% in the second quarter of 2011 and 3.06% in the first quarter of 2012.Net interest margin on securitized assets was 1.05%, representing a decline from 1.28% one year ago and an increase from 0.97% last quarter. During the second quarter the Company benefited from higher than expected prepayment penalties in the securitized portfolio resulting in an increase in the net interest margin. Compared to a year ago, the utilization of lower yielding assets as replacement assets in the CMB program is the primary contributor to lower margins.Return on equity at 25.1% for the quarter and 25.7% year to date remains solid and continues well in excess of the Company's minimum performance objective of 20%.During the quarter the Company securitized and sold $72.8 million in insured multi-unit residential mortgages that qualified for off-balance sheet and gain on sale accounting under current accounting standards. This resulted in a securitization gain of $1.3 million in the quarter.The credit quality of the loans portfolio remains solid. Net non-performing loans ended the quarter at 0.31% of the total loans portfolio and, while up from 0.25% at December 31, 2011 and 0.28% at the end of the first quarter of 2012, the ratio remains well within the Company's expectations and reflects the strategic shift towards a higher proportion of traditional mortgages. The provision for credit losses continues at a low level and was 0.05% of gross loans on an annualized basis in the quarter, compared to 0.03% in the second quarter of 2011 and 0.11% in the first quarter of 2012. The provision for credit losses ratio is within the Company's objective of 0.05% to 0.15% of gross loans.Tier 1 and Total capital ratios of 17.1% and 21.1%, respectively, at June 30, 2012 remain very conservative and well above the Company's minimum targets. Home Trust's asset to capital multiple was 13.8 at the end of the quarter compared to 14.4 at December 31, 2011 and 13.6 at the end of the first quarter. The Company is well positioned to continue growing its assets, revenue and net income while meeting or exceeding the Company's 2012 targets and maintaining prudent levels of capital.Total assets were $18.53 billion at the end of the second quarter, an increase of $2.09 billion or 12.7% from $16.43 billion one year ago, $0.83 billion or 4.7% from $17.70 billion at the end of 2011 and $0.53 billion or 3.0% over $18.0 billion at the end of the first quarter of 2012.Total loans grew to $16.97 billion, an increase of $1.65 billion or 10.8% from $15.32 billion one year ago, $0.88 billion or 5.5% from $16.09 billion at the end of 2011 (10.9% on an annualized basis) and $0.56 billion or 3.4% over $16.40 billion at the end of last quarter. While annualized loan growth year to date has been below the Company's growth target due to net reduction of insured loans, demand is strong and the Company continues to expect year-over-year loan growth to be within the target range of 13%-18% for 2012.The total value of mortgages originated in the second quarter rose to $1.67 billion from $1.20 billion originated in the second quarter of 2011 and $1.19 billion in originations in the first quarter of 2012. Originations were $2.85 billion for the first six months of the year compared to $2.57 billion in the same period last year. Origination volumes and weightings continue to reflect the Company's strategy to increase focus on originations of higher yielding traditional mortgages.Originations of traditional mortgages increased to $1.21 billion in the second quarter from $870.8 million in the second quarter of 2011 and $921.1 million originated in the first quarter of 2012. The Company is experiencing strong demand for its traditional product offerings combined with high credit quality. This continues to enhance profitability.Accelerator (insured) mortgage originations increased to $221.1 million in the second quarter from $172.4 million in the second quarter of 2011 and from $172.7 million in the first quarter of 2012. The Company continues to pursue opportunities that may lead to future growth in this product segment in 2012.Multi-unit residential originations were $87.8 million in the quarter compared to $34.5 million in the second quarter of 2011 and $27.5 million in the first quarter of 2012. The Company anticipates continued funding of multi-unit residential mortgages through the second half of 2012 and plans to securitize these mortgages through programs that qualify for off-balance sheet accounting.Non-residential mortgage advances were $86.0 million in the quarter compared to $59.5 million in the second quarter of 2011 and $25.2 million in the first quarter of 2012. The Company continues to be very selective and focuses on opportunities that present strong margins and risk profiles that are within the Company's risk tolerance.Store and apartment advances were $37.8 million for the quarter compared to $35.5 million in the second quarter of 2011 and $37.9 million last quarter.The Company opened 1,793 new Visa accounts in the second quarter compared to 2,389 accounts opened in the second quarter of 2011 and 1,383 accounts last quarter. The decline through the current year reflects the Company's increased conservatism in approvals and advances and the anticipated adoption of OSFI's B-20 draft guideline provisions limiting home equity lines of credit (HELOC). The final guideline is less restrictive than the Company's expectation and the Company is exploring strategies, within its risk tolerance and OSFI's guidelines, to enhance growth in this portfolio.Consistent with the first quarter of 2012, the Company is delivering solid performance despite the persistent international economic instability and muted economic improvement in Canada. The Company's performance reflects the strength, and the successful execution, of the Company's core strategy.As discussed in the first quarter of 2012, the Company continues to see resilient and relatively stable real estate markets across most of Canada, with a few areas of continuing concern, where the Company has already scaled back. The Company expects real estate demand to remain relatively stable in 2012 with potentially modest declines in some of the larger markets. This is expected to result in relatively balanced real estate market conditions and lead to continued healthy demand for the Company's products, consistent with the first half of the year. The Company has not seen evidence of a "real-estate bubble" in Canada. Low interest rates and stable employment have maintained housing affordability. The Company expects interest rates to remain at current levels or experience very modest increases into 2013 and that Canadian employment levels will remain relatively stable in 2012. The Company maintains a solid capital position and prudent liquidity and expects that it is well positioned to deal with the impact of uncertainty that may affect the Canadian economy.Favourable market opportunities have supported the Company's strategy of renewed focus on the traditional mortgage portfolio with record levels of originations in this product category. While the Company has increased lending in this product category it has been able to do so with improving credit quality. The average credit score for traditional mortgage originations for the first half of 2012 is up from the same period of 2011 while loan to value ratios are down. The Company remains proactive and prudent in its lending practices, taking into account local economic and market conditions. The credit quality of the loan portfolio remains strong, reflecting the Company's focus on diligent underwriting combined with strong collection standards and loan resolution strategies.During the second quarter, OSFI released Final Guideline B-20 - Residential Mortgage Underwriting Practices and Procedures requiring full implementation by the end of 2012. Additionally, the Canadian government announced rule changes associated with mortgages insured through CMHC that became effective in early July 2012. The Company supports the changes announced and expects that these measures will serve to enhance the safety and soundness of the Canadian real estate market, mortgage insurers and the economy, while potentially tempering real estate demand in the short term. The Company has already made changes, where required, to comply with a significant number of the B-20 guidelines and will be fully compliant before the end of 2012. The changes required for B-20 are not expected to materially affect the Company's growth or progress. There may be a small segment of the Company's borrowers who will be impacted by the B-20 changes and may need to seek alternative funding. The Company was fully compliant with the required changes to the insured mortgage rules before the early July 2012 deadline.Subsequent to the end of the quarter, and in light of the Company's solid performance, profitability and strong financial position, the Board of Directors declared a quarterly dividend of $0.22 per Common share, payable on September 1, 2012 to shareholders of record at the close of business on August 15, 2012. With solid performance in all aspects of Home Capital's business, management expects that the Company will continue to generate above average earnings and shareholder performance for 2012, and will meet or exceed all of its stated objectives for 2012. (signed)GERALD M.

Capital Group Inc. (the "Company" or "Home Capital") makes written and verbal forward-looking statements. These are included in the Annual Report, periodic reports to shareholders, regulatory filings, press releases, Company presentations and other Company communications. Forward-looking statements are made in connection with business objectives and targets, Company strategies, operations, anticipated financial results and the outlook for the Company, its industry, and the Canadian economy. These statements regarding expected future performance are "financial outlooks" within the meaning of National Instrument 51-102. Please see the risk factors, which are set forth in detail on pages 48 through 58 of the Company's 2011 Annual Report, as well as its other publicly filed information, which are available on the System for Electronic Document Analysis and Retrieval (SEDAR) at www.sedar.com, for the material factors that could cause the Company's actual results to differ materially from these statements. These risk factors are material risk factors a reader should consider, and include credit risk, liquidity and funding risk, structural interest rate risk, operational risk, investment risk, strategic and business risk, reputational risk and regulatory and legal risk along with additional risk factors that may affect future results. Forward-looking statements can be found in the Report to the Shareholders and the Outlook Section in the quarterly report. Forward-looking statements are typically identified by words such as "will,"  "believe," "expect," "anticipate," "estimate," "plan," "may," and "could" or other similar expressions. By their very nature, these statements require the Company to make assumptions and are subject to inherent risks and uncertainties, general and specific, which may cause actual results to differ materially from the expectations expressed in the forward-looking statements. These risks and uncertainties include, but are not limited to, global capital market activity, changes in government monetary and economic policies, changes in interest rates, inflation levels and general economic conditions, legislative and regulatory developments, competition and technological change. The preceding list is not exhaustive of possible factors.These and other factors should be considered carefully and readers are cautioned not to place undue reliance on these forward-looking statements. The Company does not undertake to update any forward-looking statements, whether written or verbal, that may be made from time to time by it or on its behalf, except as required by securities laws.Assumptions about the performance of the Canadian economy in 2012 and its effect on Home Capital's business are material factors the Company considers when setting its objectives and outlook. In determining expectations for economic growth, both broadly and in the financial services sector, the Company primarily considers historical economic data provided by the Canadian government and its agencies. In setting and reviewing the outlook and objectives for 2012, management's expectations continue to assume:The Canadian economy will produce modest growth in 2012, but will be heavily influenced by the economic conditions in the United States and global markets. Inflation will generally be within the Bank of Canada's target of 1%-3%.Interest rates will remain at current rates or increase marginally in 2012 as the Bank of Canada leaves its target for the overnight rate at its current level or modestly increases the rate later in 2012. The housing market will remain resilient to global uncertainty with balanced supply and demand conditions in most regions. Declining housing starts and flat resale activity on stable prices through most of Canada will continue with the market activity moderating from previous activity levels.Unemployment will remain stable or improve slightly as the economy grows, while a larger labour force will tend to offset job growth.Consumer debt levels will remain serviceable by Canadian households.Net interest margins overall are expected to remain in the current range. Margins are expected to remain stable as returns on the increased traditional portfolio offset declining returns on the securitized portfolio throughout 2012.Credit quality will remain sound with actual losses within the low end of Home Capital's historical range.The recent changes to Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation (CMHC) policies will help to temper the real estate market.Non-GAAP MeasuresThe Company applies IFRS which are the generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP) for Canadian publically accountable enterprises. The Company uses a number of financial measures to assess its performance. Some of these measures are not calculated in accordance with GAAP, are not defined by GAAP, and do not have standardized meanings that would ensure consistency and comparability between companies using these measures.  Definitions of non-GAAP measures can be found under Non-GAAP Measures in the Management's Discussion and Analysis included in the Company's Second Quarter 2012 Report.Regulatory FilingsThe Company's continuous disclosure materials, including interim filings, annual Management's Discussion and Analysis and audited consolidated financial statements, Annual Information Form, Notice of Annual Meeting of Shareholders and Proxy Circular are available on the Company's website at www.homecapital.com, and on the Canadian Securities Administrators' website at www.sedar.com.Home Capital Group Inc. is a public company, traded on the Toronto Stock Exchange (HCG), operating through its principal subsidiary, Home Trust Company.
