E*TRADE Financial Corporation Reports Monthly Activity for August 2013; Provides Updates to Its Loan Delinquencies

08:05 EDT Wednesday, September 18, 2013

NEW YORK (Business Wire) -- E*TRADE Financial Corporation (NASDAQ: ETFC) today released its Monthly Activity Report for August 2013.

Daily Average Revenue Trades (“DARTs”) for August were 147,517, a five percent increase from July and a 21 percent increase from the year-ago period. The Company added 30,132 gross new brokerage accounts in August, ending the month with approximately 3.0 million brokerage accounts – an increase of 9,466 from July. Total accounts ended the month at approximately 4.6 million.

Net new brokerage assets were positive $1.1 billion in the month. During the month, customer security holdings decreased by one percent, or $0.8 billion, and brokerage-related cash ended the month unchanged at $36.8 billion. Bank-related cash and deposits also ended the month unchanged, at $6.5 billion. Customers were net buyers of approximately $1.0 billion in securities during the month.

The Company also updated delinquency statistics in its loan portfolio. For the Company's entire loan portfolio, total special mention delinquencies (30 to 89 days delinquent) increased nine percent from June 30, 2013 to August 31, 2013 and decreased 21 percent from July 31, 2013 to August 31, 2013, while total “at risk” delinquencies (30 to 179 days delinquent) increased four percent from June 30, 2013 to August 31, 2013 and decreased 17 percent from July 31, 2013 to August 31, 2013. Additional loan delinquency data is provided in the second table of this release.

The Company recently completed a servicer transfer of $1.6 billion in 1-4 family mortgages, prompted by changes to a servicer relationship. Servicer transfers typically create a temporary spike in delinquencies resulting from changes to borrower payment processes, which was demonstrated in July's increase in special mention delinquencies. Based on data received to date, and consistent with previous servicer transfers, the Company expects this temporary increase in delinquencies to revert to pre-transfer levels for the September reporting period.
