Goldman Sachs Reports Third Quarter Earnings Per Common Share of $2.88 and Increases the Quarterly Dividend to $0.55 Per Common Share Business Wire NEW YORK -- October 17, 2013 The Goldman Sachs Group, Inc. (NYSE: GS) today reported net revenues of $6.72billion and net earnings of $1.52billion for the third quarter ended September30,2013. Diluted earnings per common share were $2.88 compared with $2.85 for the third quarter of 2012 and $3.70 for the second quarter of 2013. Annualized return on average common shareholders’ equity (ROE)^(1) was 8.1% for the third quarter of 2013 and 10.4% for the first nine months of 2013. Highlights *Goldman Sachs continued its leadership in investment banking, ranking first in worldwide announced and completed mergers and acquisitions for the year-to-date.^(2) *The firm ranked first in worldwide equity and equity-related offerings, common stock offerings and initial public offerings for the year-to-date.^(2) *Assets under supervision^(3) increased to a record $991billion, with net inflows in long-term assets under supervision^(3) of $16billion during the quarter. *The firm continues to manage its liquidity and capital conservatively. The firm’s global core excess liquidity^(4) was $175 billion^(5) as of September30,2013. In addition, the firm’s Tier1 capital ratio^(6) was 16.3%^(5) and the firm’s Tier1 common ratio^(6) was 14.2%^(5) as of September30,2013, in each case under Basel1 and reflecting the revised market risk regulatory capital requirements which became effective on January1,2013. _____________ “The third quarter’s results reflected a period of slow client activity,” said Lloyd C. Blankfein, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. “Still, we saw various signs that our clients are prepared to act on significant transactions and we believe that the firm is well positioned to help our clients accomplish their objectives. As longer term U.S. budget issues are resolved, we could see an improvement in corporate and investor sentiment that would help lay the basis for a more sustained recovery.” Net Revenues Investment Banking Net revenues in Investment Banking were $1.17billion, essentially unchanged compared with the third quarter of 2012 and 25% lower than the second quarter of 2013. Net revenues in Financial Advisory were $423million, 17% lower than the third quarter of 2012, reflecting a decrease in industry-wide completed mergers and acquisitions. Net revenues in the firm’s Underwriting business were $743million, 13% higher than the third quarter of 2012. This increase reflected significantly higher net revenues in equity underwriting, primarily due to higher net revenues from initial public offerings. Net revenues in debt underwriting were essentially unchanged compared with the third quarter of 2012. The firm’s investment banking transaction backlog increased significantly compared with the end of the second quarter of 2013.^(7) Institutional Client Services Net revenues in Institutional Client Services were $2.86billion, 32% lower than the third quarter of 2012 and 34% lower than the second quarter of 2013. Net revenues in Fixed Income, Currency and Commodities Client Execution were $1.25billion, 44% lower than the third quarter of 2012, reflecting significantly lower net revenues in mortgages and interest rate products, as well as in currencies. In addition, net revenues in credit products were lower, while net revenues in commodities were higher compared with the third quarter of 2012. During the third quarter of 2013, Fixed Income, Currency and Commodities Client Execution operated in a challenging environment, which was characterized by economic uncertainty, difficult market-making conditions in certain businesses and lower levels of activity. Net revenues in Equities were $1.62billion, 18% lower than the third quarter of 2012, primarily due to the sale of the firm’s Americas reinsurance business^(8). Net revenues in equities client execution (excluding net revenues from the firm’s Americas reinsurance business) and commissions and fees were both essentially unchanged compared with the third quarter of 2012. In addition, securities services net revenues were lower compared with the third quarter of 2012, primarily due to the sale of the firm’s hedge fund administration business in 2012. Although global equity prices increased during the quarter, Equities operated in an environment characterized by lower levels of activity and volatility. The net loss attributable to the impact of changes in the firm’s own credit spreads on borrowings for which the fair value option was elected was $72million ($47million and $25million related to Fixed Income, Currency and Commodities Client Execution and equities client execution, respectively) for the third quarter of 2013, compared with a net loss of $370million ($225million and $145million related to Fixed Income, Currency and Commodities Client Execution and equities client execution, respectively) for the third quarter of 2012. Investing & Lending Net revenues in Investing & Lending were $1.48billion for the third quarter of 2013. Results for the third quarter of 2013 included net gains of $938million from investments in equities, primarily in private equities, driven by strong corporate performance and company-specific events. In addition, Investing & Lending net revenues included net interest income and net gains of $300million from debt securities and loans, and other net revenues of $237million related to the firm’s consolidated investments. Investment Management Net revenues in Investment Management were $1.22billion, 2% higher than the third quarter of 2012 and 9% lower than the second quarter of 2013. The increase in net revenues compared with the third quarter of 2012 reflected higher management and other fees, primarily due to higher average assets under supervision and favorable changes in the mix of assets under supervision, partially offset by lower transaction revenues. During the quarter, total assets under supervision^(3) increased $36billion to $991billion. Long-term assets under supervision^(3) increased $35billion, reflecting market appreciation of $19billion, primarily in equity assets, and net inflows of $16billion, primarily in fixed income assets. In addition, liquidity products^(3) increased $1billion. Expenses Operating expenses were $4.56billion, 25% lower than the third quarter of 2012 and 24% lower than the second quarter of 2013. Compensation and Benefits The accrual for compensation and benefits expenses (including salaries, estimated year-end discretionary compensation, amortization of equity awards and other items such as benefits) was $2.38billion for the third quarter of 2013, 35% lower than the third quarter of 2012. The ratio of compensation and benefits to net revenues for the first nine months of 2013 was 41.0%, compared with 43.0% for the first six months of 2013 and 44.0% for the first nine months of 2012. Total staff^(9) increased 3% compared with the end of the second quarter of 2013. Non-Compensation Expenses Non-compensation expenses were $2.17billion, 9% lower than the third quarter of 2012 and 4% lower than the second quarter of 2013. The decrease compared with the third quarter of 2012 included a decline in insurance reserves, reflecting the sale of the firm’s Americas reinsurance business, and lower depreciation and amortization expense, primarily reflecting lower expenses related to consolidated investments. These decreases were partially offset by increased net provisions for litigation and regulatory proceedings and higher brokerage, clearing, exchange and distribution fees. The third quarter of 2013 included net provisions for litigation and regulatory proceedings of $142million. Provision for Taxes The effective income tax rate for the first nine months of 2013 was 30.3%, essentially unchanged compared with 30.4% for the first half of 2013. Capital As of September30,2013, total capital was $245.70billion, consisting of $77.62billion in total shareholders’ equity (common shareholders’ equity of $70.42billion and preferred stock of $7.20billion) and $168.08billion in unsecured long-term borrowings. Book value per common share was $153.58 and tangible book value per common share^(10) was $143.86, both approximately 2% higher compared with the end of the second quarter of 2013. Book value and tangible book value per common share are based on common shares outstanding, including restricted stock units granted to employees with no future service requirements, of 458.5million as of September30,2013. During the quarter, the firm repurchased 10.2million shares of its common stock at an average cost per share of $161.59, for a total cost of $1.65billion. The remaining share authorization under the firm’s existing repurchase program is 65.7million shares.^(11) On October1,2013, Berkshire Hathaway Inc. and certain of its subsidiaries (collectively, Berkshire Hathaway) exercised in full their warrant to purchase shares of the firm’s common stock. The warrant agreement required net share settlement and the firm delivered 13.1million shares of common stock to Berkshire Hathaway on October4,2013. The impact to both the firm’s book value per common share and tangible book value per common share was a reduction of approximately 3% in October. Under the regulatory capital requirements currently applicable to bank holding companies, the firm’s Tier1 capital ratio^(6) was 16.3%^(5) and the firm’s Tier1 common ratio^(6) was 14.2%^(5) as of September30,2013, up from 15.6% and 13.5%, respectively, as of June30,2013 (in each case under Basel1 and reflecting the revised market risk regulatory capital requirements which became effective on January1,2013). Other Balance Sheet and Liquidity Metrics *The firm’s global core excess liquidity (GCE)^(4) was $175 billion^(5) as of September30,2013 and averaged $187billion^(5) for the third quarter of 2013, compared with an average of $180billion for the second quarter of 2013. *Total assets ^ were $923billion^(5) as of September30,2013, compared with $938billion as of June30,2013. *Level 3 assets ^ were $42billion^(5) as of September30,2013, compared with $43billion as of June30,2013, and represented 4.5% of total assets. Dividends The Board of Directors of The Goldman Sachs Group, Inc. increased the firm’s quarterly dividend to $0.55 per common share from $0.50 per common share. The dividend will be paid on December30,2013 to common shareholders of record on December2,2013.

In addition, the firm declared dividends of $1,000.00 per each share of SeriesE Preferred Stock and SeriesF Preferred Stock, to be paid on December2,2013 to preferred shareholders of record on November17,2013. ______________ The Goldman Sachs Group, Inc. is a leading global investment banking, securities and investment management firm that provides a wide range of financial services to a substantial and diversified client base that includes corporations, financial institutions, governments and high-net-worth individuals.

Assets under supervision (AUS) include assets under management and other client assets. Assets under management include client assets where the firm earns a fee for managing assets on a discretionary basis. Other client assets include client assets invested with (3) third-party managers, private bank deposits and advisory relationships where the firm earns a fee for advisory and other services, but does not have investment discretion. Long-term AUS represents AUS excluding liquidity products. Liquidity products represents money markets and bank deposit assets. The firm’s global core excess represents a pool of excess liquidity consisting of unencumbered, highly liquid securities and cash. For a further discussion of the firm's global core excess liquidity pool, see (4) “Liquidity Risk Management” in PartI, Item2 “Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations” in the firm's Quarterly Report on Form10-Q for the period ended June30,2013. (5) Represents a preliminary estimate and may be revised in the firm’s Quarterly Report on Form10-Q for the period ended September30,2013. The Tier1 capital ratio equals Tier1 capital divided by risk-weighted assets (RWAs). The Tier1 common ratio equals Tier1 common capital divided by RWAs. As of September30,2013, Tier1 capital was $71.05billion and Tier1 common capital was $61.83billion (Tier1 capital less $9.22billion of preferred stock, junior subordinated debt issued to trusts and other adjustments). The firm’s RWAs under the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System’s risk-based capital requirements were approximately $437billion as of September30,2013, under Basel1 and reflecting the revised market risk regulatory capital (6) requirements which became effective on January1,2013. Management believes that the Tier1 common ratio is meaningful because it is one of the measures that the firm, its regulators and investors use to assess capital adequacy. The Tier1 common ratio is a non-GAAP measure and may not be comparable to similar non-GAAP measures used by other companies. For a further discussion of the firm's capital ratios, see “Equity Capital” in PartI, Item2 “Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations” in the firm's Quarterly Report on Form10-Q for the period ended June30,2013. The firm’s investment banking transaction backlog represents an (7) estimate of the firm’s future net revenues from investment banking transactions where management believes that future revenue realization is more likely than not. In April 2013, the firm completed the sale of a majority stake in its Americas reinsurance business and no longer consolidates this business. (8) Net revenues related to reinsurance were $84 million and $297 million for the three months ended June30,2013 and September30,2012, respectively, and $317million and $767million for the nine months ended September30,2013 and September30,2012, respectively. (9) Includes employees, consultants and temporary staff. Tangible common shareholders' equity equals total shareholders' equity less preferred stock, goodwill and identifiable intangible assets. Tangible book value per common share is computed by dividing tangible common shareholders’ equity by the number of common shares outstanding, including restricted stock units granted to employees with no future service requirements. Management believes that tangible common (10) shareholders’ equity and tangible book value per common share are meaningful because they are measures that the firm and investors use to assess capital adequacy. Tangible common shareholders’ equity and tangible book value per common share are non-GAAP measures and may not be comparable to similar non-GAAP measures used by other companies. The table below presents the reconciliation of total shareholders' equity to tangible common shareholders' equity: As of Unaudited, in September millions 30, 2013 Total shareholders' $ 77,616 equity Preferred (7,200) stock Common shareholders’ 70,416 equity Goodwill and identifiable (4,458) intangible assets Tangible common $ 65,958 shareholders’ equity The remaining authorization represents the shares that may be repurchased under the repurchase program approved by the Board of (11) Directors. As disclosed in Note19. Shareholders’ Equity in PartI, Item1 “Financial Statements” in the firm's Quarterly Report on Form10-Q for the period ended June30,2013, share repurchases require approval by the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System.
