SECOND QUARTER 2013 HIGHLIGHTS

Key results for the second quarter and the first six months of 2013 included:

  • Net income increased to $61.6 million for the second quarter and to $121.3 million for the first six months of 2013, up 15.7% and 14.7% over the comparable periods in 2012. Net income was reduced by $2.3 million in after tax charges related to IFRS implementation (see the Non-Interest Income section of the MD&A) offset by an increase from $2.0 million in investment tax credit benefits, after tax, related to a portion of the Company's development of a new banking platform (see the Income Taxes section of the MD&A). Without these items, adjusted net income, as defined in Table 2,was $61.9 million for Q2 2013 and $124.9 million for the first six months of 2013, representing increases of 16.3% and 18.1% over the comparable periods of 2012. This was a marginal decline from adjusted net income of $63.0 million in Q1 2013, primarily due to lower income from gains on securitization.
  • Diluted earnings per share were $1.77 for the quarter and $3.48 year to date representing increases of 14.9% and 13.4% over the $1.54 and $3.07 earned in the comparable periods of 2012 and an increase of 2.9% over the $1.72 last quarter.  Adjusted diluted earnings per share1 were $1.78 for the quarter and $3.59 year to date, 15.6% and 16.9% higher than the same periods of 2012 and 1.7% below adjusted diluted earnings per share of $1.81 last quarter.
  • Net interest income, before provisions, continued in an upward trend, reaching $102.5 million in the second quarter and $204.4 million year to date, increasing from $93.9 million and $182.1 million recorded in the same periods of 2012 and from $101.9 million earned in Q1 2013. The growth in net interest income reflects strong net on-balance sheet loan growth in the traditional loan portfolio, offset by continued reduction of the securitized portfolio, combined with strong total net interest margin.
  • Net interest margin (TEB) was 2.14% in the quarter and 2.15% on a year to date basis. This is up from 2.09% and 2.05% in the same periods of 2012 and slightly below the 2.17% recorded last quarter. The increase year over year reflects the combination of the shift to higher yielding traditional mortgages relative to securitized mortgages and improved spreads earned on non-securitized lending.
  • Return on equity at 23.6% for the quarter remains solid and continues to be in excess of the Company's minimum performance objective of 20%.
  • The credit quality of the loan portfolio remains strong with continued low non-performing loans and credit losses that are well within expected levels. Net non-performing loans as a percentage of gross loans (NPL ratio) ended the quarter at 0.31% compared to 0.32% at the end of last quarter and 0.31% one year ago. The annualized credit provision as a percentage of gross loans (PCL ratio) ratio remains within expectations at 0.10%, compared to 0.11% in last quarter and 0.05% one year ago.
  • Capital ratios under Basel III remain robust with Home Trust's Common Equity Tier 1 ratio (CET 1 ratio) ending the quarter at 16.63%, while Tier 1 and Total Capital Ratios were 16.63% and 19.74%, respectively.  Home Trust's assets to capital multiple was 13.86 at the end of the quarter compared to 13.98 at March 31, 2013 and 13.78 one year ago.
  • Total loans under administration, which includes securitized mortgages that qualify for off-balance sheet accounting, increased to $18.84 billion, reflecting increases of $1.72 billion or 10.0% from $17.12 billion one year ago, and $0.80 billion or 4.4% from $18.04 billion at the end of 2012 (8.8% on an annualized basis).
  • The Company continued to experience strong loan demand in the quarter, with growth over Q1 2013 and last year in residential lending. Total mortgage originations were $1.63 billion compared to $1.38 billion last quarter.  This was down marginally from $1.67 billion in Q2 2012 reflecting lower multi-unit and non-residential originations offset by higher originations in residential lending. Year-to-date loan originations were $3.01 billion, up from $2.85 billion in 2012.
  • Traditional mortgage originations increased to $1.24 billion in the quarter, up from $1.19 billion in Q2 2012 and $0.99 billion in Q1 2013. Year-to-date traditional mortgage originations were $2.23 billion, up from $2.10 billion last year. The Company continues to experience strong demand for its traditional product offerings, which continue to be of high credit quality. This continues to enhance profitability and asset quality.
  • Accelerator (insured) residential mortgage originations increased to $260.3 million in the quarter, up from $121.6 million last quarter and $221.1 million in Q2 2012. Year-to-date originations of $381.9 million are slightly below the $393.8 million originated in the same period last year as current year Q1 originations were lower given the slower start to the spring market in 2013. The Company continues to pursue strategies for transactions that will qualify lower margin, insured single-family residential mortgages for off-balance sheet treatment and lead to increased growth in this loan portfolio. The dialogue with regulators and other interested parties regarding these strategies has continued and management remains cautiously optimistic that a solution can be attained.
  • Multi-unit residential mortgage originations were $54.3 million in the quarter and $257.0 million year to date compared to $87.8 million and $115.4 million in the same periods last year and $202.6 million last quarter. The Company securitized and sold $47.8 million in Q2 2013 resulting in $0.4 million in securitization gains. The insured multi-unit residential market is relatively limited and the Company participates as appropriate opportunities are available through various origination channels. Consequently, origination volumes can vary significantly from quarter to quarter.
  • Commercial mortgage advances were $44.0 million for the quarter and $74.7 million year to date compared to $106.0 million and $133.7 million in the comparable periods of 2012 and $30.7 million last quarter. Store and apartment mortgage advances were $27.5 million in the quarter and $51.1 million year to date compared to $37.8 million and $75.7 million in the comparable periods of 2012 and $23.6 million last quarter.  The Company continues to be selective and focuses on opportunities that present strong credit and low risk profiles.
  • The consumer retail credit portfolio, which includes durable household goods, such as water heaters and larger-ticket home improvement items, reached $310.9 million in Q2 2013, up 55.3% from $200.2 million one year ago. The Company has been successful at expanding relationships with its business partners to increase this portfolio which offers attractive returns for the risk profile.

1 Table 2 provides a reconciliation of net income to adjusted net income and adjusted diluted earnings per share.

Although real estate market activity was relatively weak in the early part of the current year, resulting in reduced levels of loan growth, the Company experienced increased demand for its mortgage lending products in the second quarter. The real estate market now appears to have adjusted to the changes in the Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation ("CMHC") rules and the Office of the Superintendent of Financial Institutions Canada ("OSFI)" lending guideline which were introduced in 2012.  Recent information indicates that modest increases in sales volumes and prices occurred in the quarter, suggesting that the objectives of the policy changes have been accomplished. This is consistent with the Company's expectations and indicates a healthy market with listings and sales in balance. The Company has not observed evidence of a "housing bubble" and expects that it will be able to continue to expand its share of the market through its network of brokers and its business development staff.

Late in the quarter, major flooding occurred in the province of Alberta.  This event caused property damage and hardship for many Albertans and the Company has been responding to requests from borrowers.  In order to assess the risk of losses arising from the flooding, the Company dispatched a team of evaluators from its Calgary, Vancouver and Toronto offices.  While a number of borrowers were directly affected by this difficult situation, the preliminary indications are that the Company will not face significant losses as a result of the flooding.  No additional provisions were recorded in this connection.  Following the end of the quarter, the town of Lac-Mégantic, Quebec experienced a terrible accident and losses of lives and property.  Although it did not have any direct association or losses as a result of this tragic situation, the Company recognizes the severe impact that this tragedy has had on the residents and their friends and relatives.  Also following the quarter end, the Greater Toronto Area experienced a record amount of rainfall and consequent flooding, which disrupted the lives and businesses of many people.  The Company does not expect that this unusual event will result in significant credit losses.

Senior Management and the Board of Directors are pleased to announce that the Company further strengthened its risk management group during the quarter with the appointment of David J. Novak to the position of Senior Vice President and Chief Risk Officer. Mr. Novak brings with him significant experience in quantitative analysis, risk management and asset liability management, having served in senior roles in the private sector and more recently with OSFI.

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 an increased quarterly dividend of $0.28 per common share, payable on September 1, 2013 to shareholders of record at the close of business on August 12, 2013.

The Company continues to deliver solid results in terms of growth, high returns and increased dividends. Despite the persistent international economic instability and modest economic improvement in Canada, the Company's performance continues to reflect the strength and the successful execution of its core strategy.

With solid performance in all aspects of Home Capital's business, management continues to expect the positive performance the Company experienced during the first half of 2013 to continue for the remainder of year.

Caution Regarding Forward-Looking Statements

From time to time Home Capital Group Inc. 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 55 through 68 of the Company's 2012 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, funding and liquidity 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," "forecast," "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 2013 and its effect on Home Capital's business are material factors the Company considers when setting its objectives, targets and outlook.  In determining expectations for economic growth, both broadly and in the financial services sector, the Company primarily considers historical and forecasted economic data provided by the Canadian government and its agencies.  In setting and reviewing its targets, objectives and outlook for the remainder of 2013, management's expectations continue to assume:

  • The Canadian economy will produce modest growth in 2013 with relatively stable to modestly improving employment conditions in most regions and inflation will generally be within the Bank of Canada's target of 1% to 3%, leading to stable credit losses and continued strong demand for the Company's lending products.
  • The Canadian economy will continue to be heavily influenced by the economic conditions in the United States and global markets and, as such, the Company is prepared for the variability to plan that this may lead to.
  • The Bank of Canada continues to indicate that increases to its target overnight interest rate are not imminent and, as such, the Company is assuming the rate will remain at its current level for the balance of 2013 and then begin a slow and measured increase. This is expected to continue to support relatively low mortgage interest rates for the foreseeable future.
  • The housing market will remain relatively stable with balanced supply and demand conditions in most regions supported by continued low interest rates, relatively stable to modestly improving employment, and immigration.  There will be declines in housing starts and resale activity compared to prior years with stable to modestly declining prices throughout most of Canada. This supports continued stable credit quality and strong demand for the Company's products.
  • Consumer debt levels will remain serviceable by Canadian households.

Non-GAAP Measures

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 2013 Report.

Regulatory Filings

The 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.
