07:07 EDTBACBank of America says Q1 earnings hurt by resolving more mortgage issues
The results for Q1 include $6.0B in litigation expense related to the previously announced settlement with the Federal Housing Finance Agency, and additional reserves primarily for previously disclosed legacy mortgage-related matters. Bank of America reached a settlement with FGIC, as well as separate settlements with The Bank of New York Mellon, as trustee, for certain second-lien residential mortgage-backed securities (RMBS) trusts for which FGIC provided financial guarantee insurance. The agreements resolve all outstanding litigation between FGIC and the company, as well as outstanding and potential claims by FGIC and the trustee related to alleged representations and warranties breaches and other claims involving second-lien RMBS trusts for which FGIC provided financial guarantee insurance. Seven of the trust settlements have already been completed, and the two remaining trust settlements are subject to additional investor approvals in a process that is expected to be completed within the next 45 days. Bank of America has already made payments totaling approximately $900M under the settlement with FGIC and the completed trust settlements and will pay an additional $50M if the remaining two trust settlements are completed. The costs of the FGIC and trust settlements are covered by previously established reserves. With this settlement, Bank of America has resolved disputes with four monolines. "The cost of resolving more of our mortgage issues hurt our earnings this quarter,” said CEO Brian Moynihan. “But the earnings power of our business and customer strategy generated solid results and we continued to return excess capital to our shareholders."
