Jamie Dimon, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, commented on the financial results: “JPMorgan Chase had a good start to the year, given there were industry-wide headwinds in Markets and Mortgage. Consumer & Community Banking deposit growth and card sales volume both remain above the industry average^2, and we have made significant progress in Business Banking originations – up 22%. The Corporate & Investment Bank was #1 in Global IB fees, with #1 positions in global debt and equity, global syndicated loans and global long-term debt. Gross investment banking revenue with Commercial Banking clients was up 31%. Asset Management had its twentieth consecutive quarter of positive net long-term client flows and had record loan balances, up 20%.”  Dimon continued: “We have growing confidence in the economy – consumers, corporations and middle market companies are in increasingly good financial shape and housing has turned the corner in most markets – and we are doing our part to support the recovery. JPMorgan Chase provided credit and raised capital of over $450 billion for our clients during the first quarter of 2014, which included $5 billion for U.S. small businesses.”  Dimon concluded: “As I said in my letter to shareholders this week, we will dedicate extraordinary effort in 2014 adapting to the new global financial architecture, and we will continue to make significant progress on our control agenda. We face the future with a strong foundation, a fortress balance sheet and excellent franchises built to serve our clients.”  In the discussion below of the business segments and of JPMorgan Chase as a Firm, information is presented on a managed basis.

Net interest income was $1.1 billion, a decrease of $45 million, or 4%, compared with the prior year, reflecting spread compression, higher funding costs on loan products, and lower purchase discounts recognized on loan repayments, partially offset by higher loan balances. Noninterest revenue was $558million, an increase of $23 million, or 4%, compared with the prior year, driven by higher investment banking fees.  Revenue from Middle Market Banking was $698 million, a decrease of $55 million, or 7%, compared with the prior year. Revenue from Corporate Client Banking was $446million, an increase of $13 million, or 3%, compared with the prior year. Revenue from Commercial Term Lending was $308 million, an increase of $17 million, or 6%, compared with the prior year. Revenue from Real Estate Banking was $116million, an increase of $4 million, or 4%, compared with the prior year.  The provision for credit losses was $5 million, compared with $39 million in the prior year. Net recoveries were $14 million (0.04% net recovery rate), compared with net recoveries of $7 million (0.02% net recovery rate) in the prior year and net charge-offs of $25million (0.07% net charge-off rate) in the prior quarter. The allowance for loan losses to period-end loans retained was 1.95%, down from 2.05% in the prior year and down from 1.97% in the prior quarter. Nonaccrual loans were $485million, down $184 million, or 28%, from the prior year, and down by $29 million, or 6%, from the prior quarter.  Noninterest expense was $686 million, up 7% compared with the prior year, largely reflecting higher control and headcount-related^2 expense.  Key Metrics and Business Updates:  ^(All comparisons refer to the prior-year quarter except as noted)    *Return on equity was 17% on $14.0 billion of average allocated capital.   *Overhead ratio was 42%, compared with 38% in the prior year.   *Gross investment banking revenue (which is shared with the Corporate &     Investment Bank) was $447 million, up 31% compared with the prior year and     down 11% compared with the prior quarter.   *Average loan balances were $137.7 billion, up 6% compared with the prior     year and 2% compared with the prior quarter.   *Period-end loan balances were $138.9 billion, up 7% compared with the     prior year and 1% compared with the prior quarter.   *Average client deposits and other third-party liabilities were $202.9     billion, up 4% compared with the prior year and down 1% compared with the     prior quarter.

Net revenue was $2.8billion, an increase of $125million, or 5%, from the prior year. Noninterest revenue was $2.2billion, up $124 million, or 6%, from the prior year, due to net client inflows and the effect of higher market levels, partially offset by lower valuations of seed capital investments. Net interest income was $560million, up $1million, or flat to the prior year, due to higher loan and deposit balances, predominantly offset by narrower loan spreads.  Revenue from Private Banking was $1.5 billion, up 4% compared with the prior year. Revenue from Institutional was $500 million, down 12%. Retail was $769million, up 20%.  Client assets were $2.4 trillion, an increase of $223billion, or 10%, compared with the prior year. Assets under management were $1.6 trillion, an increase of $165 billion, or 11%, from the prior year, due to the effect of higher market levels and net inflows to long-term products. Custody, brokerage, administration and deposit balances were $746billion, up $58billion, or 8%, from the prior year, due to the effect of higher market levels and custody inflows, partially offset by brokerage outflows.  The provision for credit losses was a benefit of $9 million, compared with a provision for credit losses of $21 million in the prior year.  Noninterest expense was $2.1 billion, an increase of $199 million, or 11%, from the prior year, primarily due to higher headcount-related^2 expense and costs related to the control agenda.  Key Metrics and Business Updates:  ^(All comparisons refer to the prior-year quarter except as noted)    *Return on equity was 20% on $9.0 billion of average allocated capital.   *Pretax margin^2 was 26%, down from 29% in the prior year.   *For the 12 months ended March 31, 2014, assets under management reflected     net inflows of $72 billion, driven by net inflows of $80 billion to     long-term products and net outflows of $8 billion from liquidity products.     For the quarter, net inflows were $14 billion, driven by net inflows of     $20 billion to long-term products and net outflows of $6 billion from     liquidity products.   *Net long-term client flows were positive for the twentieth consecutive     quarter.   *Assets under management ranked in the top two quartiles for investment     performance were 67% over 5 years, 68% over 3 years and 65% over 1 year.   *Customer assets in 4 and 5 Star-rated funds were 47% of all rated mutual     fund assets.   *Client assets were $2.4 trillion, a record, up 10% from the prior year and     2% from the prior quarter.   *Average loans were $95.7billion, a record, up 20% from the prior year and     3% from the prior quarter.   *Period-end loans were $96.9billion, a record, up 19% from the prior year     and 2% from the prior quarter.   *Average deposits were $149.4 billion, a record, up 7% from the prior year     and 4% from the prior quarter.   *Period-end deposits were $147.8 billion, a record, up 6% from the prior     year and 1% from the prior quarter.

Private Equity reported net income of $215 million, compared with a net loss of $182 million in the prior year. Net revenue was $363 million, compared with a loss of $276 million in the prior year, primarily due to net valuation gains on public and private investments and gains from sales.  Treasury and CIO reported a net loss of $94 million, compared with net income of $24 million in the prior year. Net revenue was $2 million, compared with $113 million in the prior year. Current-quarter net interest income was a loss of $87 million, compared with a loss of $472 million in the prior year, reflecting the benefit of higher interest rates and reinvestment opportunities.  Other Corporate reported net income of $219 million, compared with net income of $408 million in the prior year. The current quarter included an after tax impact of approximately $90 million for writing down deferred tax assets following New York State tax law changes enacted March 31, 2014. The prior year included an after-tax benefit of $227 million for tax adjustments.

See notes on page 12 for further explanation of managed basis. Net revenue on a U.S. GAAP basis totaled $22,993 million, $23,156 million, and $25,122 million for the first quarter of 2014, fourth quarter of 2013, and first quarter of 2013, respectively.  Discussion of Results:  Net income was $5.3 billion, down $1.3 billion from the prior year. The decrease was driven by lower net revenue and higher provision for credit losses, partially offset by lower noninterest expense.  Net revenue was $23.9 billion, down $2.0 billion, or 8%, compared with the prior year. Noninterest revenue was $13.0 billion, down $1.8 billion, or 12%, compared with the prior year. Net interest income was $10.9 billion, down $202 million, or 2%, compared with the prior year, reflecting the impact of lower loan yields and lower trading and investment securities balances, predominantly offset by higher investment securities yields, lower long term debt and deposit interest expense.  The provision for credit losses was $850 million, up $233 million from the prior year. The total consumer provision for credit losses was $807 million, compared with $545 million in the prior year. The current-quarter consumer provision reflected a $449 million reduction in the allowance for loan losses, compared to a $1.1 billion reduction in the prior year. The current-quarter consumer allowance release primarily reflects lower estimated losses in the mortgage and credit card portfolios. Consumer net charge-offs were $1.3 billion, compared with $1.7 billion in the prior year, resulting in net charge-off rates of 1.42% and 1.92%, respectively. The wholesale provision for credit losses was $43 million, compared with $72 million in the prior year. Wholesale net charge-offs were $13 million, compared with net charge-offs of $35 million in the prior year, resulting in net charge-off rates of 0.02% and 0.05%, respectively. The Firm’s allowance for loan losses to period-end loans retained^1 was 1.75%, compared with 2.27% in the prior year. The Firm’s nonperforming assets totaled $9.5 billion, down from the prior quarter and prior year levels of $9.7 billion and $11.7 billion, respectively.  Noninterest expense was $14.6 billion, down $787 million, or 5%, compared with the prior year, primarily driven by lower performance-based compensation in CIB and lower mortgage production and servicing expense.  Key Metrics and Business Updates:  ^(All comparisons refer to the prior-year quarter except as noted)    *Basel III Tier 1 common ratio^1 was 9.5%.   *Headcount was 246,994, a decrease of 8,904, compared with the prior year.  1.   Notes on non-GAAP financial measures:                In addition to analyzing the Firm's results on a reported basis,        management reviews the Firm's consolidated results and the results of        the lines of business on a “managed” basis, which is a non-GAAP        financial measure. The Firm's definition of managed basis starts with        the reported U.S. GAAP results and includes certain reclassifications        to present total consolidated net revenue for the Firm (and for each of        the business segments) on a fully taxable-equivalent (“FTE”) basis. a.     Accordingly, revenue from investments that receive tax credits and        tax-exempt securities is presented in the managed results on a basis        comparable to taxable securities and investments. This non-GAAP        financial measure allows management to assess the comparability of        revenue arising from both taxable and tax-exempt sources. The        corresponding income tax impact related to tax-exempt items is recorded        within income tax expense. These adjustments have no impact on        consolidated net income/(loss) as reported by the Firm or on net        income/(loss) as reported by the lines of business.                The ratio of the allowance for loan losses to end-of-period loans        excludes the following: loans accounted for at fair value and loans b.     held-for-sale; purchased credit-impaired (“PCI”) loans; and the        allowance for loan losses related to PCI loans. Additionally, Real        Estate Portfolios net charge-offs and net charge-off rates exclude the        impact of PCI loans.                Tangible common equity (“TCE”) and return on tangible common equity        (“ROTCE”) are each non-GAAP financial measures. TCE represents the        Firm’s common stockholders’ equity (i.e., total stockholders’ equity        less preferred stock) less goodwill and identifiable intangible assets c.     (other than MSRs), net of related deferred tax liabilities. ROTCE        measures the Firm’s earnings as a percentage of TCE. TCE and ROTCE are        meaningful to the Firm, as well as analysts and investors, in assessing        the Firm’s use of equity, as well as facilitating comparisons of the        Firm with competitors.                Tier 1 common capital and the Tier 1 common ratio under the Basel III        Advanced Fully Phased-In rules are each non-GAAP financial measures.        Additionally, the supplemental leverage ratio (“SLR”) under Basel III        rules is a non-GAAP financial measure. These measures are used by d.     management, bank regulators, investors and analysts to assess and        monitor the Firm’s capital position. For additional information on Tier        1 common and the Tier 1 common ratio under the Basel III Advanced Fully        Phased-In rules, and the SLR under Basel III rules, see Regulatory        capital on pages 161-165 of JPMorgan Chase & Co.’s Annual Report on        Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2013.                The CIB provides non-GAAP financial measures, as such measures are used e.     by management to assess the underlying performance of the business and        for comparability with peers.    *The ratio for the allowance for loan losses to end-of-period loans is     calculated excluding the impact of consolidated Firm-administered     multi-seller conduits and trade finance loans, to provide a more     meaningful assessment of CIB’s allowance coverage ratio.   *Prior to January 1, 2014, the CIB provided non-GAAP financial measures     excluding the impact of FVA (effective fourth quarter 2013) and DVA on net     revenue and net income. Beginning in the first quarter 2014, the Firm did     not exclude FVA and DVA from its assessment of business performance;     however, the Firm continued to present these non-GAAP measures for the     periods prior to January 1, 2014, as they reflected how management     assessed the underlying business performance of the CIB in those prior     periods.  2.   Additional notes on financial measures:                Headcount-related expense includes salary and benefits (excluding a.     performance-based incentives), and other noncompensation costs related        to employees.                Consumer & Community Banking allocated equity includes $3.0 billion of b.     operational risk capital held at the Consumer & Community Banking level        related to legacy mortgage servicing matters.         c.     Consumer & Business Banking deposit rankings are based on the Firm's        and peer disclosures as of the fourth quarter of 2013.                A household is a collection of individuals or entities aggregated        together by name, address, tax identifier and phone. Consumer & d.     Business Banking households are households that have a personal or        business deposit, personal investment or business credit relationship        with Chase. Reported on a one-month lag.                Mortgage Banking provision for credit losses is included in the e.     functional results of Real Estate Portfolios, in production expense in        Mortgage Production, and in core servicing expense in Mortgage        Servicing.                Credit card sales volume is presented excluding Commercial Card. f.     Rankings and comparison of general purpose credit card sales volume are        based on disclosures by peers and internal estimates. Rankings are as        of the fourth quarter of 2013.                Asset Management pretax margin represents income before income tax        expense divided by total net revenue which is, in management's view, a g.     comprehensive measure of pretax performance derived by measuring        earnings after all costs are taken into consideration. It is,        therefore, another basis that management uses to evaluate the        performance of Asset Management against the performance of its peers.                The amount of credit provided to clients represents new and renewed        credit, including loans and commitments. The amount of credit provided        to small businesses reflects loans and increased lines of credit h.     provided by Consumer & Business Banking; Card, Merchant Services &        Auto; and Commercial Banking. The amount of credit provided to        nonprofit and government entities, including states, municipalities,        hospitals and universities, represents that provided by the Corporate &        Investment Bank and Commercial Banking.

Tangible book value per share and ROTCE are non-GAAP financial            measures. Tangible book value per share represents tangible common (b)        equity divided by period-end common shares. ROTCE measures the            Firm's annualized earnings as a percentage of tangible common            equity. For further discussion of these measures, see page 35 of            the Earnings Release Financial Supplement.                        Share price shown is from the New York Stock Exchange. The common (c)        stock is also listed and traded on the London Stock Exchange and            the Tokyo Stock Exchange.             (d)        Ratios are based upon annualized amounts.             (e)        Return on Basel risk-weighted assets is annualized earnings divided            by average risk-weighted assets.                        Basel III rules became effective on January 1, 2014; all prior (f)        period data is based on Basel I rules.
