2019 Second Quarter Summary Financial Results
Second Quarter 2019 Business Highlights
Financial Results Discussion
Net Income - For the three and six months ended June 30, 2019, the Bank recorded net income of $96 million and $208 million compared to $129 million and $247 million for the same periods in 2018. The decline in the Bank’s net income was primarily driven by a decrease in net interest income and an increase in other expense. Net income was also impacted by a decrease in other income.
Net Interest Income - The Bank’s net interest income decreased to $147 million and $306 million for the three and six months ended June 30, 2019 compared to $167 million and $324 million for the same periods last year. The decline during the three months ended June 30, 2019 was primarily due to a decrease in net interest margin and a decline in average advance volumes. The decline during the six months ended June 30, 2019 was primarily due to a decline in average advance volumes and lower advance and investment prepayment fee income. The Bank’s net interest margin was 0.40 percent and 0.42 percent during the three and six months ended June 30, 2019 compared to 0.44 percent and 0.43 percent for the same periods in 2018. The decrease in net interest margin was primarily attributable to lower asset liability spreads due to the Bank’s interest-earning assets repricing to lower interest rates at a quicker pace than the Bank’s interest-bearing liabilities during the second quarter of 2019.
Other Income (Loss) - The Bank recorded net gains of $3 million and $8 million in other income (loss) for the three and six months ended June 30, 2019 compared to net gains of $8 million and $16 million for the same periods last year. Other income (loss) was primarily impacted by net gains (losses) on derivatives and hedging activities and net gains (losses) on trading securities, offset in part by an increase in other, net.
Other Expense - Other expense totaled $43 million and $82 million for the three and six months ended June 30, 2019, compared to $32 million and $65 million for the same periods last year, primarily due to increased professional fees and other operating expenses.
Assets - The Bank’s total assets increased to $149.5 billion at June 30, 2019, from $146.5 billion at December 31, 2018, driven by an increase in investments, partially offset by a decrease in advances. Investments increased by $7.4 billion from December 31, 2018 primarily due to an increase in money market investments as a result of increased liquidity holdings during the first half of 2019. Advances at June 30, 2019 decreased by $5.0 billion from advances at December 31, 2018 due primarily to a decrease in borrowings by large depository institution and captive insurance company members.
Liabilities - The Bank’s total liabilities increased to $142.0 billion at June 30, 2019, from $139.0 billion at December 31, 2018, primarily driven by an increase in the amount of consolidated obligations needed to fund our assets.
Capital - Total capital decreased slightly to $7.5 billion at June 30, 2019 from December 31, 2018, primarily due to a decrease in capital stock resulting from a decrease in member activity. The Bank’s regulatory capital ratio decreased to 5.10 percent at June 30, 2019, from 5.27 percent at December 31, 2018 and was above the required regulatory minimum at each period end. Regulatory capital includes all capital stock, mandatorily redeemable capital stock, and retained earnings.
