“We continue to deliver solid financial results reflecting the strength, diversity and active management of our businesses in an evolving environment. Record revenue in Canadian Personal and Commercial Banking and contribution from Bank of the West drove good pre-provision, pre-tax growth this quarter, and our capital and liquidity position remains strong,” said Darryl White, Chief Executive Officer, BMO Financial Group.

“We’re accelerating efficiency initiatives and remain focused on dynamically positioning the bank for long-term growth and sustained profitability through disciplined expense and risk management.

We were recently ranked first in customer satisfaction with online banking in the J.D. Power (5) 2023 Canada Online Banking Satisfaction Study, as well as being named by World Finance Magazine as the Best Private Bank, Commercial Bank, and Retail Bank in Canada and, for the first time, Best Private Bank and Commercial Bank in the United States. These recognitions are a testament to how BMO’s Digital First strategy and industry-leading experiences are exceeding customers’ evolving expectations and providing greater access to comprehensive one-client banking and investment products and services,” concluded Mr. White.

Concurrent with the release of results, BMO announced a fourth quarter 2023 dividend of $1.47 per common share, unchanged from the prior quarter and an increase of $0.08 or 6% from the prior year. The quarterly dividend of $1.47 per common share is equivalent to an annual dividend of $5.88 per common share.

Recent Acquisitions

On February 1, 2023, we completed the acquisition of Bank of the West and its subsidiaries from BNP Paribas for a cash purchase price of US$13.8 billion. Bank of the West provides a broad range of banking products and services, primarily in the Western and Midwestern parts of the United States. The acquisition strengthens our position in North America with increased scale and greater access to growth opportunities in strategic new markets. We expect to complete the conversion of the Bank of the West customer accounts and systems to our respective BMO platforms by early September 2023. The impact of the acquisition is reflected in our current quarter and year-to-date results as a business combination, with operating results primarily allocated to our U.S. P&C and BMO Wealth Management businesses based on Bank of the West’s client segmentation and allocation methodologies, which may change after conversion.

On closing, we recognized purchase accounting fair value marks on Bank of the West’s loans and deposits of $3.0 billion and discounts on securities of $3.5 billion on our balance sheet in accordance with International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS). As previously disclosed, to manage the exposure to capital from changes in the fair value of the assets and liabilities of Bank of the West due to changes in interest rates between the announcement and closing of the acquisition, we entered into interest rate swaps that resulted in cumulative mark-to-market gains of $5.7 billion. These swaps were largely offset from an interest rate risk perspective through the purchase of a portfolio of matched duration U.S. treasuries and other balance sheet instruments. On closing, the swaps were unwound and replaced with hedges, which in effect crystallized the unrealized loss position on our balance sheet. Accretion of the fair value marks and securities discounts will increase net interest income, and the amortization of the fair value hedge will decrease net interest income over the remaining term of these instruments, both recorded in Corporate Services.

On June 1, 2023, we completed the acquisition of the AIR MILES Reward Program (AIR MILES) business of LoyaltyOne Co. for a cash purchase price of US$160 million. The AIR MILES business operates as a wholly-owned subsidiary of BMO. The acquisition was accounted for as a business combination, and the acquired business and corresponding goodwill are included in our Canadian P&C reporting segment.

Third Quarter 2023 Performance Review

Adjusted results and ratios in this section are on a non-GAAP basis. Refer to the Non-GAAP and Other Financial Measures section for further information on adjusting items. The order in which the impact on net income is discussed in this section follows the order of revenue, expenses and provision for credit losses, regardless of their relative impact.

Adjusted results in the current quarter and the prior year excluded the following items:

  • Acquisition and integration costs of $370 million ($497 million pre-tax) in the current quarter and $62 million ($84 million pre-tax) in the prior year, recorded in non-interest expense. The current quarter included $363 million ($487 million pre-tax) related to Bank of the West.
  • Amortization of acquisition-related intangibles assets of $85 million ($115 million pre-tax) in the current quarter and $5 million ($7 million pre-tax) in the prior year, recorded in non-interest expense. The current quarter included $76 million ($102 million pre-tax) related to Bank of the West.
  • A charge of $131 million ($160 million pre-tax) related to tax measures enacted by the Canadian government that amended the GST/HST definition for financial services, comprising $138 million pre-tax recorded in non-interest revenue and $22 million pre-tax recorded in non-interest expense.
  • A net recovery of $3 million ($4 million pre-tax) related to a lawsuit associated with a predecessor bank, M&I Marshall and Ilsley Bank, comprising a $3 million pre-tax interest expense, net of a $7 million pre-tax adjustment to the provision recorded in non-interest expense.
  • A loss of $694 million ($945 million pre-tax) in the prior year related to the management of the impact of interest rate changes between the announcement and closing of the Bank of the West acquisition on its fair value and goodwill.
  • Expenses of $6 million ($7 million pre-tax) in the prior year related to the sale of our EMEA and U.S. Asset Management business.

The inclusion of Bank of the West results in the current quarter decreased reported net income by $272 million, and increased adjusted net income by $167 million. Reported and adjusted results in the current quarter included severance costs of $162 million ($223 million pre-tax) associated with accelerating operational efficiencies across the enterprise, recorded in the respective operating groups, as well as legal provisions of $83 million (pre-tax and after-tax) recorded in BMO Capital Markets. The combined impact of the severance costs and legal provisions reduced EPS by $0.34 per share. Reported EPS was $1.97, an increase of $0.02, and adjusted EPS was $2.78, a decrease of $0.31, including the impact of common share issuances in the first quarter of 2023.

Reported net income increased 7% from the prior year, primarily due to the prior-year loss related to fair value management actions, partially offset by higher acquisition-related costs and the impact of Canadian tax measures noted above. Adjusted net income decreased 4%, with higher revenue more than offset by higher expenses and higher provisions for credit losses. Reported net income increased in BMO Capital Markets and decreased in Canadian P&C and BMO Wealth Management. U.S. P&C reported net income increased due to the impact of the stronger U.S. dollar and decreased in source currency. Corporate Services recorded a net loss on both a reported and an adjusted basis, compared with a reported net loss and adjusted net income in the prior year.

Canadian P&C

Reported net income was $915 million, a decrease of $50 million or 5% from the prior year, and adjusted net income was $923 million, a decrease of $42 million or 4%. Results reflected a 10% increase in revenue due to higher net interest income, driven by balance growth and higher margins, and higher non-interest revenue, more than offset by higher expenses and a higher provision for credit losses.

U.S. P&C

Reported net income was $576 million, an increase of $8 million or 1% from the prior year, and adjusted net income was $653 million, an increase of $84 million or 14%. The impact of the stronger U.S. dollar increased net income by 4% on a reported basis and 5% on an adjusted basis.

Stake.com

On a U.S. dollar basis, reported net income was $431 million, a decrease of $14 million or 3% from the prior year, and adjusted net income was $489 million, an increase of $43 million or 9% due to the inclusion of Bank of the West, partially offset by a decrease in underlying revenue, primarily due to lower non-interest revenue, higher expenses and a higher provision for credit losses.

BMO Wealth Management

Reported net income was $303 million and adjusted net income was $304 million, both a decrease of $21 million or 7% from the prior year. Wealth and Asset Management reported net income was $222 million and adjusted net income was $223 million, both a decrease of $41 million or 16%, as the inclusion of Bank of the West and higher revenue from growth in client assets was more than offset by higher underlying expenses. Insurance net income was $81 million, an increase of $20 million or 34% from the prior year, primarily due to favourable market movements in the current year.

BMO Capital Markets

Reported net income was $310 million, an increase of $48 million or 18% from the prior year, and adjusted net income was $316 million, an increase of $50 million or 18%. Results reflected revenue growth of 17%, with higher revenue in both Global Markets and Investment and Corporate Banking partially offset by higher expenses and a higher provision for credit losses.

Corporate Services

Reported net loss was $650 million, compared with reported net loss of $754 million in the prior year, and adjusted net loss was $159 million, compared with adjusted net income of $7 million. Reported results decreased, primarily due to the adjusting items noted above. Adjusted results decreased due to lower revenue and higher expenses.

Capital

BMO’s Common Equity Tier 1 (CET1) Ratio was 12.3% as at July 31, 2023, an increase from 12.2% at the end of the second quarter of 2023, primarily due to internal capital generation, common shares issued under the dividend reinvestment and share purchase plan, and lower risk-weighted assets, partially offset by the acquisition of AIR MILES and acquisition and integration costs related to Bank of the West.

Credit Quality

Advertisement
Stake.com

Total provision for credit losses was $492 million, compared with a provision of $136 million in the prior year. The total provision for credit losses as a percentage of average net loans and acceptances ratio was 30 basis points, compared with 10 basis points in the prior year. The provision for credit losses on impaired loans was $333 million, an increase of $229 million from the prior year. The provision for credit losses on impaired loans as a percentage of average net loans and acceptances ratio was 21 basis points, compared with 8 basis points in the prior year. The provision for credit losses on performing loans was $159 million, an increase of $127 million from the prior year. The $159 million provision for credit losses on performing loans in the current quarter primarily reflected portfolio credit migration. The $32 million provision for credit losses in the prior year reflected a deteriorating economic outlook and balance growth, largely offset by continued reduction in pandemic uncertainty and positive portfolio migration.

Refer to the Critical Accounting Estimates and Judgments section of BMO’s 2022 Annual Report and Note 4 of our audited annual consolidated financial statements for further information on the allowance for credit losses as at October 31, 2022.

Non-GAAP and Other Financial Measures

Results and measures in this document are presented on a GAAP basis. Unless otherwise indicated, all amounts are in Canadian dollars and have been derived from our audited annual consolidated financial statements prepared in accordance with International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS). References to GAAP mean IFRS. We use a number of financial measures to assess our performance, as well as the performance of our operating segments, including amounts, measures and ratios that are presented on a non‑GAAP basis, as described below. We believe that these non‑GAAP amounts, measures and ratios, read together with our GAAP results, provide readers with a better understanding of how management assesses results.

Non-GAAP amounts, measures and ratios do not have standardized meanings under GAAP. They are unlikely to be comparable to similar measures presented by other companies and should not be viewed in isolation from, or as a substitute for, GAAP results.

Certain information contained in BMO’s Management’s Discussion and Analysis dated August 29, 2023 for the period ended July 31, 2023 (Third Quarter 2023 Report to Shareholders) is incorporated by reference into this document. For further details on the composition of non-GAAP amounts, measures and ratios, including supplementary financial measures, please refer to the Glossary of Financial Terms section in our Third Quarter 2023 Report to Shareholders which is available at www.sedarplus.ca.

Stake.com

Our non-GAAP measures broadly fall into the following categories:

Adjusted measures and ratios

Management considers both reported and adjusted results and measures to be useful in assessing underlying ongoing business performance. Adjusted results and measures remove certain specified items from revenue, non-interest expense, provision for credit losses and income taxes, as detailed in the following table. Adjusted results and measures presented in this document are non-GAAP. Presenting results on both a reported basis and an adjusted basis permits readers to assess the impact of certain items on results for the periods presented, and to better assess results excluding those items that may not be reflective of ongoing business performance. As such, the presentation may facilitate readers’ analysis of trends. Except as otherwise noted, management’s discussion of changes in reported results in this document applies equally to changes in the corresponding adjusted results.

Measures net of insurance claims, commissions and changes in policy benefit liabilities (CCPB)

We also present reported and adjusted revenue on a basis that is net of insurance claims, commissions and changes in policy benefit liabilities (CCPB), and our efficiency ratio and operating leverage are calculated on a similar basis. Measures and ratios presented on a basis net of CCPB are non-GAAP. Insurance revenue can experience variability arising from fluctuations in the fair value of insurance assets, caused by movements in interest rates and equity markets. The investments that support policy benefit liabilities are predominantly fixed income assets recorded at fair value, with changes in fair value recorded in insurance revenue in the Consolidated Statement of Income. These fair value changes are largely offset by changes in the fair value of policy benefit liabilities, the impact of which is reflected in CCPB. The presentation and discussion of revenue, efficiency ratios and operating leverage on a net basis reduces this variability, which allows for a better assessment of operating results. For more information refer to the Insurance Claims, Commissions and Changes in Policy Benefit Liabilities section in our Third Quarter 2023 Report to Shareholders.

Tangible common equity and return on tangible common equity

Tangible common equity is calculated as common shareholders’ equity less goodwill and acquisition-related intangible assets, net of related deferred tax liabilities. Return on tangible common equity is commonly used in the North American banking industry and is meaningful because it measures the performance of businesses consistently, whether they were acquired or developed organically.

Caution Regarding Forward-Looking Statements 

Bank of Montreal’s public communications often include written or oral forward-looking statements. Statements of this type are included in this document and may be included in other filings with Canadian securities regulators or the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, or in other communications. All such statements are made pursuant to the “safe harbor” provisions of, and are intended to be forward-looking statements under, the United States Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995 and any applicable Canadian securities legislation. Forward-looking statements in this document may include, but are not limited to, statements with respect to our objectives and priorities for fiscal 2023 and beyond, our strategies or future actions, our targets and commitments (including with respect to our Climate Ambition), expectations for our financial condition, capital position, the regulatory environment in which we operate, the results of, or outlook for, our operations or the Canadian, U.S. and international economies, plans for the combined operations of BMO and Bank of the West, the timing for converting Bank of the West customer accounts and systems onto our respective BMO platforms, and the financial, operational and capital impacts of the transaction, and include statements made by our management. Forward-looking statements are typically identified by words such as “will”, “would”, “should”, “believe”, “expect”, “anticipate”, “project”, “intend”, “estimate”, “plan”, “commit”, “target”, “may”, “schedule”, “forecast”, “outlook”, “seek” and “could” or negative or grammatical variations thereof.

By their nature, forward-looking statements require us to make assumptions and are subject to inherent risks and uncertainties, both general and specific in nature. There is significant risk that predictions, forecasts, conclusions or projections will not prove to be accurate, that our assumptions may not be correct, and that actual results may differ materially from such predictions, forecasts, conclusions or projections. We caution readers of this document not to place undue reliance on our forward-looking statements, as a number of factors – many of which are beyond our control and the effects of which can be difficult to predict – could cause actual future results, conditions, actions or events to differ materially from the targets, expectations, estimates or intentions expressed in the forward-looking statements.

The future outcomes that relate to forward-looking statements may be influenced by many factors, including, but not limited to: general economic and market conditions in the countries in which we operate, including labour challenges; the impact of adverse developments affecting the U.S. and global banking industry, including the risk of bank failures and liquidity concerns, the heightening of economic and market volatility, and regulatory responses to such developments; the anticipated benefits from acquisitions, including Bank of the West, such as potential synergies, accretion to adjusted earnings per share (EPS), and operational efficiencies, are not realized; changes to our credit ratings; the emergence or continuation of widespread health emergencies or pandemics, and their impact on local, national or international economies, as well as their heightening of certain risks that may affect our future results; information, privacy and cybersecurity, including the threat of data breaches, hacking, identity theft and corporate espionage, as well as the possibility of denial of service resulting from efforts targeted at causing system failure and service disruption; benchmark interest rate reforms; technological changes and technology resiliency; political conditions, including changes relating to, or affecting, economic or trade matters; climate change and other environmental and social risk; the Canadian housing market and consumer leverage; inflationary pressures; global supply-chain disruptions; changes in monetary, fiscal, or economic policy; changes in laws, including tax legislation and interpretation, or in supervisory expectations or requirements, including capital, interest rate and liquidity requirements and guidance, and the effect of such changes on funding costs; weak, volatile or illiquid capital or credit markets; the level of competition in the geographic and business areas in which we operate; exposure to, and the resolution of, significant litigation or regulatory matters, our ability to successfully appeal adverse outcomes of such matters and the timing, determination and recovery of amounts related to such matters; the accuracy and completeness of the information we obtain with respect to our customers and counterparties; failure of third parties to comply with their obligations to us; our ability to execute our strategic plans, complete proposed acquisitions or dispositions and integrate acquisitions, including obtaining regulatory approvals; critical accounting estimates and judgments, and the effects of changes to accounting standards, rules and interpretations on these estimates; operational and infrastructure risks, including with respect to reliance on third parties; global capital markets activities; the possible effects on our business of war or terrorist activities; natural disasters and disruptions to public infrastructure, such as transportation, communications, power or water supply; and our ability to anticipate and effectively manage risks arising from all of the foregoing factors.

We caution that the foregoing list is not exhaustive of all possible factors. Other factors and risks could adversely affect our results. For more information, please refer to the discussion in the Risks That May Affect Future Results section, and the sections related to credit and counterparty, market, insurance, liquidity and funding, operational non-financial, legal and regulatory, strategic, environmental and social, and reputation risk, in the Enterprise-Wide Risk Management section of BMO’s 2022 Annual Report, and the Risk Management section in our Third Quarter 2023 Report to Shareholders, all of which outline certain key factors and risks that may affect our future results. Investors and others should carefully consider these factors and risks, as well as other uncertainties and potential events, and the inherent uncertainty of forward-looking statements. We do not undertake to update any forward-looking statements, whether written or oral, that may be made from time to time by the organization or on its behalf, except as required by law. The forward-looking information contained in our Third Quarter 2023 Report to Shareholders is presented for the purpose of assisting shareholders and analysts in understanding our financial position as at and for the periods ended on the dates presented, as well as our strategic priorities and objectives, and may not be appropriate for other purposes.

Material economic assumptions underlying the forward-looking statements contained in this document include those set out in the Economic Developments and Outlook section of BMO’s 2022 Annual Report, as updated in the Economic Developments and Outlook section in our Third Quarter 2023 Report to Shareholders, as well as in the Allowance for Credit Losses section of BMO’s 2022 Annual Report, as updated in the Allowance for Credit Losses section in our Third Quarter 2023 Report to Shareholders. Assumptions about the performance of the Canadian and U.S. economies, as well as overall market conditions and their combined effect on our business, are material factors we consider when determining our strategic priorities, objectives and expectations for our business. 

In determining our expectations for economic growth, we primarily consider historical economic data, past relationships between economic and financial variables, changes in government policies, and the risks to the domestic and global economy.

Information on EQT AB’s financial reporting

Stake.com

The EQT AB Group has a long-term business model founded on a promise to its fund investors to invest capital, drive value creation and create consistent attractive returns over a 5 to 10-year horizon. The Group’s financial model is primarily affected by the size of its fee-generating assets under management, the performance of the EQT funds and its ability to recruit and retain top talent.

The Group operates in a market driven by long-term trends and thus believes quarterly financial statements are less relevant for investors. However, in order to provide the market with relevant and suitable information about the Group’s development, EQT publishes quarterly announcements with key operating numbers that are relevant for the business performance (taking Nasdaq’s guidance note for preparing interim management statements into consideration). In addition, a half-year report and a year-end report including financial statements and further information relevant for investors is published. Finally, EQT also publishes an annual report including sustainability reporting.
