“Northern Trust performed well in the second quarter of 2019 despite the impact of a mixed global macroeconomic environment. Net income was flat versus the prior-year quarter and improved 12% on a sequential-quarter basis, as revenue grew 2% and expense declined by 2%. We continued to have success in generating organic growth across our businesses, while also driving improved efficiencies. We generated a return on common equity of 15.9% during the quarter and returned $402 million to common shareholders through dividends and the repurchase of 2.9 million shares. During the quarter we announced our 2019 Capital Plan actions, which include increasing our quarterly dividend by 17% to $0.70 per share and the flexibility to repurchase up to $1.4 billion of common stock. We believe the capital distributions included in our plan demonstrate the strength of Northern Trust’s focused business model and balance sheet, as well as our commitment to shareholders,” said Michael O’Grady, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer.
