American Express Company reported preliminary consolidated earnings results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2015. For the quarter, the company reported total interest income of $1,857 million compared to total interest income of $1,776 million for the same period a year ago. Net interest income was $1,447 million compared to $1,337 million last year. Pre-tax income was $2,316 million compared to $2,208 million last year. Net income was $1,525 million compared to $1,432 million last year.

Income from continuing operations attributable to common shareholders was $1.49 compared to $1.34 per basic share last year. Consolidated total revenues net of interest expense was $7,950 million compared to $8,173 million last year. Results for the quarter were negatively affected by the significant impact of a stronger U.S. dollar on international operations. Excluding the business travel operations that were part of the company a year ago, adjusted revenues increased 5% on an FX adjusted basis. That increase was driven by higher Card Member spending and higher net interest income. Adjusted net interest income $1,601 million compared to $1,512 million last year. Adjusted total revenues net of interest expense was $7,950 million compared to $7,834 million last year. Return on average equity was 29.0% against 28.3% a year ago.

Book value per common share was $21.49 against $18.87 a year ago. For the full year of 2015, the company expects earnings will be flat to modestly down year-over-year with the headwinds it is facing and as it ramp up investments to help offset the impact from ending its relationship with Costco in the U.S. next year. For the quarter, net write-offs were $199 billion against $170 billion a year ago.
