 Sallie Mae Reports Second-Quarter 2017 Financial Results
   Wednesday, July 19, 2017 4:30:00 PM ET

--Net Interest Income Increases 27 Percent From Year-Ago Quarter to $270 Million

--Diluted Earnings Per Share Up 25 Percent from Year-Ago Quarter to $0.15

--Private Education Loan Originations For the Quarter Totaled $431 Million

Sallie Mae (SLM ), formally SLM Corporation, today released second-quarter 2017 financial results that include growth in portfolio size, net interest income, diluted earnings per share and originations. In the second-quarter 2017, the company expanded its private education loan portfolio 27 percent to $15.5 billion, increased its net interest income 27 percent to $270 million, increased its diluted earnings per share 25 percent to $0.15, all compared with the second quarter of 2016, and originated $431 million in private education loans in the period.

"This quarter’s results reflect the consistency of our operation, with continued, strong credit quality and customer outcomes," said Raymond J. Quinlan, chairman and CEO. "We remain steadfast in our commitment to put customers first, implementing changes to provide faster access to customer care and even more flexibility in loan repayment. As college-bound families prepare for the coming academic year and apply for loans to help cover the tuition bill, it is gratifying that 96 percent of customers would recommend the assistance we provide in that process."

For the second-quarter 2017, GAAP net income was $71 million, compared with $57 million in the year-ago quarter. GAAP net income attributable to the company’s common stock was $67 million ($0.15 diluted earnings per share) in the second-quarter 2017, compared with $52 million ($0.12 diluted earnings per share) in the year-ago quarter. The year-over-year increase was primarily attributable to a $57 million increase in net interest income, which was offset by an $8 million increase in provisions for credit losses, a $3 million decrease in other income, a $16 million increase in total non-interest expenses, a $10 million increase in income tax expense, and a $6 million reduction in our derivatives and hedging activities.

Second-quarter 2017 results vs. second-quarter 2016 included:

-- Private education loan originations of $431 million, up 2 percent.

-- Net interest income of $270 million, up 27 percent.

-- Net interest margin of 5.91 percent, up 7 basis points.

-- Average private education loans outstanding of $15.7 billion, up 28 percent.

-- Average yield on the private education loan portfolio was 8.33 percent, up 35 basis points.

-- Private education loan provision for loan losses was $49 million, up from $42 million.

-- Private education loans in forbearance were 3.3 percent of private education loans in repayment and forbearance, up from 2.9 percent.

-- Private education loan delinquencies as a percentage of private education loans in repayment were 2.2 percent, up from 2.1 percent.

Core earnings for the second-quarter 2017 were $73 million, compared with $56 million in the year-ago quarter. Core earnings attributable to the company’s common stock grew 35 percent to $69 million ($0.16 diluted earnings per share) in the second-quarter 2017, compared with $51 million ($0.12 diluted earnings per share) in the year-ago quarter.

Sallie Mae provides core earnings because it is one of several measures management uses to evaluate management performance and allocate corporate resources. The difference between core earnings and GAAP net income is driven by mark-to-market unrealized gains and losses on derivative contracts recognized in GAAP, but not in core earnings results. Management believes its derivatives are effective economic hedges, and, as such, they are a critical element of the company’s interest rate risk management strategy.

Included in GAAP results for second quarter 2017 and 2016 were $3.5 million of pre-tax losses and $1.5 million in pre-tax gains, respectively, from derivative accounting treatment that are excluded from core earnings results.

Total Non-Interest Expenses

Total non-interest expenses were $111 million in the second-quarter 2017, compared with $95 million in the year-ago quarter. Operating expenses grew 17 percent from the year-ago quarter, while the non-GAAP operating efficiency ratio decreased to 39.7 percent in the second-quarter 2017 from 41.8 percent in the year-ago quarter. Excluding FDIC assessment fees, which grew 55 percent as a result of private education loan portfolio growth, non-interest expenses grew 15 percent from the year-ago quarter.

Income Tax Expense

Income tax expense increased to $45 million in the second-quarter 2017 from $35 million in the year-ago quarter. The effective income tax rate increased in the second-quarter 2017 to 38.8 percent from 37.7 percent in the year-ago quarter, primarily as a result of the effect of non-tax-deductible expenses and the continuing tax treatment related to our tax indemnification receivable.

Long Term Borrowings

On April 5, 2017, the company issued an unsecured debt offering of $200 million of 5.125 percent Senior Notes due April 5, 2022 at par. The company used the net proceeds from this debt offering to redeem all of its 6.97 percent Series A preferred stock and for general corporate purposes.

This press release contains "forward-looking statements" and information based on management’s current expectations as of the date of this release. Statements that are not historical facts, including statements about the company’s beliefs, opinions or expectations and statements that assume or are dependent upon future events, are forward-looking statements. Forward-looking statements are subject to risks, uncertainties, assumptions and other factors that may cause actual results to be materially different from those reflected in such forward-looking statements. These factors include, among others, the risks and uncertainties set forth in Item 1A "Risk Factors" and elsewhere in the company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended Dec. 31, 2016 (filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC") on Feb. 24, 2017) and subsequent filings with the SEC; increases in financing costs; limits on liquidity; increases in costs associated with compliance with laws and regulations; failure to comply with consumer protection, banking and other laws; changes in accounting standards and the impact of related changes in significant accounting estimates; any adverse outcomes in any significant litigation to which the company is a party; credit risk associated with the company’s exposure to third parties, including counterparties to the company’s derivative transactions; and changes in the terms of education loans and the educational credit marketplace (including changes resulting from new laws and the implementation of existing laws). The company could also be affected by, among other things: changes in its funding costs and availability; reductions to its credit ratings; failures or breaches of its operating systems or infrastructure, including those of third-party vendors; damage to its reputation; risks associated with restructuring initiatives, including failures to successfully implement cost-cutting and restructuring initiatives and the adverse effects of such initiatives on the company’s business; changes in the demand for educational financing or in financing preferences of lenders, educational institutions, students and their families; changes in law and regulations with respect to the student lending business and financial institutions generally; changes in banking rules and regulations, including increased capital requirements; increased competition from banks and other consumer lenders; the creditworthiness of the company’s customers; changes in the general interest rate environment, including the rate relationships among relevant money-market instruments and those of the company’s earning assets versus the company’s funding arrangements; rates of prepayments on the loans made by the company and its subsidiaries; changes in general economic conditions and the company’s ability to successfully effectuate any acquisitions; and other strategic initiatives. The preparation of the company’s consolidated financial statements also requires management to make certain estimates and assumptions, including estimates and assumptions about future events. These estimates or assumptions may prove to be incorrect. All forward-looking statements contained in this release are qualified by these cautionary statements and are made only as of the date of this release. The company does not undertake any obligation to update or revise these forward-looking statements to conform such statements to actual results or changes in its expectations.

The company reports financial results on a GAAP basis and also provides certain "Core Earnings" performance measures. The difference between the company’s "Core Earnings" and GAAP results for the periods presented were the unrealized, mark-to-market gains/losses on derivative contracts (excluding current period accruals on the derivative instruments), net of tax. These are recognized in GAAP, but not in "Core Earnings" results. The company provides "Core Earnings" measures because this is what management uses when making management decisions regarding the company’s performance and the allocation of corporate resources. The company’s "Core Earnings" are not defined terms within GAAP and may not be comparable to similarly titled measures reported by other companies.

For additional information, see "Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations -- GAAP Consolidated Earnings Summary -’Core Earnings’ " in the company’s Form 10-Q for the quarter ended June 30, 2017 for a further discussion and the "’Core Earnings’ to GAAP Reconciliation" table in this press release for a complete reconciliation between GAAP net income and "Core Earnings."

In 2016, our non-GAAP operating efficiency ratio was calculated for the periods presented as the ratio of (a) the total non-interest expense numerator to (b) the net revenue denominator (which consisted of net interest income, before provision for credit losses, plus non-interest income).

In the first-quarter 2017, we began calculating and reporting our non-GAAP operating efficiency ratio as the ratio of (a) the total non-interest expense numerator to (b) the net revenue denominator (which consists of the sum of net interest income, before provision for credit losses, and non-interest income, less the net impact of derivative accounting as defined in the "’Core Earnings’ to GAAP Reconciliation" table in this Press Release). We believe this change will improve visibility into our management of operating expenses over time and eliminate the variability in this ratio that may be related to the changes in fair value of our derivative contracts that we consider economic hedges and which do not affect how we manage operating expenses. This change conforms the treatment of our hedging activities in our operating efficiency ratio to our non-GAAP "Core Earnings" measure. The impact of this change on the non-GAAP operating efficiency ratio reported in each of our prior quarterly and annual periods is immaterial. This ratio provides useful information to investors because it is a measure used by our management team to monitor our effectiveness in managing operating expenses. Other companies may use similarly titled non-GAAP financial measures that are calculated differently from our ratio. Accordingly, our non-GAAP operating efficiency ratio may not be comparable to similar measures used by other companies.

_________
(1) In 2016, our non-GAAP operating efficiency ratio was calculated
for the periods presented as the ratio of (a) the total non-interest
expense numerator to (b) the net revenue denominator (which
consisted of net interest income, before provision for credit
losses, plus non-interest income).
 
(2) In the first-quarter 2017, we began calculating and reporting
our non-GAAP operating efficiency ratio as the ratio of (a) the
total non-interest expense numerator to (b) the net revenue
denominator (which consists of the sum of net interest income,
before provision for credit losses, and non-interest income, less
the net impact of derivative accounting as defined in the "’Core
Earnings’ to GAAP Reconciliation" table in this Press Release). We
believe this change will improve visibility into our management of
operating expenses over time and eliminate the variability in this
ratio that may be related to the changes in fair value of our
derivative contracts that we consider economic hedges and which do
not affect how we manage operating expenses. This change conforms
the treatment of our hedging activities in our operating efficiency
ratio to our non-GAAP "Core Earnings" measure. The impact of this
change on the non-GAAP operating efficiency ratio reported in each
of our prior quarterly and annual periods is immaterial. This ratio
provides useful information to investors because it is a measure
used by our management team to monitor our effectiveness in managing
operating expenses. Other companies may use similarly titled
non-GAAP financial measures that are calculated differently from our
ratio. Accordingly, our non-GAAP operating efficiency ratio may not
be comparable to similar measures used by other companies.

    ______
    (1) Derivative Accounting: "Core Earnings" exclude periodic
    unrealized gains and losses caused by the mark-to-market valuations
    on derivatives that do not qualify for hedge accounting treatment
    under GAAP, as well as the periodic unrealized gains and losses that
    are a result of ineffectiveness recognized related to effective
    hedges under GAAP. Under GAAP, for our derivatives held to maturity,
    the cumulative net unrealized gain or loss over the life of the
    contract will equal $0.
 
    (2) "Core Earnings" tax rate is based on the effective tax rate at
    the Bank where the derivative instruments are held.
