Ameriprise Financial Reports Second Quarter 2014 Results

MINNEAPOLIS --(Business Wire)--

Ameriprise Financial, Inc. (NYSE: AMP) today reported second quarter 2014 net income(1) of $374 million, or $1.91 per diluted share. Operating earnings were $408 million, up 16 percent from a year ago, with operating earnings per diluted share up 23 percent to $2.08. Operating earnings per diluted share increased 31 percent when excluding a gain from the sale of Cofunds in the year-ago quarter.

Operating net revenues increased 6 percent to $2.9 billion. Excluding the gain in the year-ago period, operating net revenues grew 8 percent driven by strong fee-based business growth from client net inflows and market appreciation, which more than offset continued pressure from low interest rates.

Operating expenses increased 4 percent to $2.3 billion reflecting higher volume-related distribution expense. General and administrative expenses increased 3 percent compared to a year ago, reflecting the company's ongoing expense discipline.

In the quarter, the company returned $464 million to shareholders through share repurchases and dividends. The company returned $921 million to shareholders through the first two quarters of the year.

"Ameriprise delivered another quarter of strong financial results with particular strength in our Advice and Wealth Management business," said Jim Cracchiolo, chairman and chief executive officer. "As we serve our clients and advisors, we continue to generate good revenue and earnings growth and posted another record high operating return on equity, ending the quarter at nearly 22 percent."

(2) The company believes the presentation of operating earnings best represents the economics of the business. Operating earnings, after-tax, exclude the consolidation of certain investment entities; net realized gains or losses; integration and restructuring charges; the market impact on variable annuity guaranteed benefits net of hedges and related deferred acquisition costs (DAC) and deferred sales inducement costs (DSIC) amortization; the market impact on indexed universal life benefits, net of hedges and related DAC amortization, unearned revenue amortization, and the reinsurance accrual; and income or loss from discontinued operations.

Results in the quarter were strong and the segment commentary includes certain items that largely offset and had a negligible impact on total operating earnings in the quarter.

Taxes

The second quarter 2014 operating effective tax rate was 29.5 percent compared to 27.9 percent a year ago. The company estimates that its full year 2014 operating effective tax rate will be in the 28 to 30 percent range.

Advice & Wealth Management pretax operating earnings increased 29 percent to $194 million, reflecting robust revenue growth and expense controls. Second quarter 2014 pretax operating margin reached a record high of 16.2 percent compared to 13.9 percent a year ago.

Operating net revenues grew 11 percent to $1.2 billion driven by asset growth in fee-based accounts from client inflows and market appreciation.

Operating expenses increased 8 percent to $1 billion as business growth resulted in higher distribution expenses. General and administrative expenses increased 2 percent, demonstrating ongoing expense discipline.

Total retail client assets grew 16 percent to $435 billion driven by client net inflows, client acquisition and market appreciation. Wrap net inflows continued to be strong at $3.0 billion, and brokerage cash balances were $18.5 billion. The combination of asset growth and strong client activity drove a 14 percent increase in operating net revenue per advisor, excluding former banking operations, on a trailing 12-month basis.

Asset Management pretax operating earnings increased 3 percent to $199 million. Excluding the gain from the sale of Cofunds in the prior-year period, operating earnings increased 21 percent driven by market appreciation and continued expense management, partially offset by the impact of net outflows in prior periods. Earnings in both the current and prior-year quarters benefitted from CDO liquidations, which occur periodically.

Asset Management margin remains strong. In the second quarter, adjusted net pretax operating margin was 38.7 percent compared to 35.1 percent a year ago.

Operating net revenues grew 3 percent to $844 million. Excluding the impact of the sale of Cofunds in the year ago quarter, revenue increased 7 percent primarily driven by asset growth from market appreciation, partially offset by the impact of net outflows in prior quarters.

Operating expenses increased 3 percent to $645 million, reflecting higher distribution expenses from market growth. Overall, expenses remained well controlled, with general and administrative expenses remaining relatively flat.

AUM grew 13 percent to $518 billion, reflecting market appreciation, partially offset by net outflows in prior periods.

For the quarter, net inflows were $4.4 billion, compared to net outflows of $2.1 billion a year ago. Retail net inflows were $0.6 billion in the quarter reflecting strong underlying net inflows at Threadneedle and normal seasonal increases in reinvested dividends at Columbia. This was partially offset by net outflows related to a portfolio manager change at Threadneedle earlier in the year and retail net outflows at Columbia. Institutional net inflows of $3.5 billion in the quarter reflected good traction in third-party mandates and the funding of a previously announced $5.6 billion mandate from a new client, partially offset by anticipated outflows from legacy insurance and former-parent influenced mandates.

Annuities pretax operating earnings increased 55 percent to $170 million compared to $110 million a year ago, reflecting new business growth, market appreciation and beneficial client behavior.

Variable annuity operating earnings increased 79 percent to $140 million. Market appreciation and beneficial client behavior more than offset higher distribution expenses from market appreciation. Policyholders continued to move assets into the Portfolio Stabilizer funds, with $1.5 billion shifting in the quarter, which resulted in a $10 million benefit to earnings. Variable annuity account balances grew 10 percent to $78 billion driven by market appreciation. Asset growth was partially offset by net outflows primarily from a closed block of variable annuities sold through third-party channels. Variable annuity cash sales remained solid at $1.2 billion.

Fixed annuity operating earnings declined 6 percent to $30 million as improved investment spreads offset the impact of a 7 percent decline in account balances. In addition, the company largely completed the re-pricing of a block of fixed annuities that are out of the guarantee period. Both spread expansion and lapse experience are consistent with our expectations.

Protection pretax operating earnings remained flat at $91 million as good performance in life insurance was offset by elevated catastrophe losses in Auto and Home. Net revenues grew 5 percent, primarily from growth in Auto and Home.

Life and Health earnings reflected continued good claims experience and growth in account values. VUL/UL account balances grew 10 percent, primarily driven by market appreciation. VUL/UL cash sales of $78 million remained strong.

Auto and Home earnings included $33 million of catastrophe losses associated with severe weather during the quarter that were $12 million higher than expectations. Excluding catastrophe losses, overall loss experience remains consistent with our expectations. Auto and Home policy growth remained strong, with policies in force up 12 percent.
