Quarter Earnings

 
 

Northern Trust Corporation reports second quarter net income of $269.2 million, earnings per common share of $1.10.

Frederick H. Waddell, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, commented, “Northern Trust continues to perform well. In the second quarter, net income and earnings per share improved both year over year and sequentially. Trust, investment and other servicing fees, the largest component of our revenues, increased 7% year over year due to new business and higher equity markets, while expense growth of 5% reflected continued investments in our business as well as ongoing support of technology initiatives and regulatory requirements. We increased our quarterly cash dividend by 9% to $0.36 per common share and returned $182.0 million to common stockholders through dividends and stock repurchases, demonstrating our commitment to returning capital to our common stockholders.”
