TORONTO, May 24, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- For the second quarter ended April 30, 2017, BMO Financial Group reported net income of $1,248 million or $1.84 per share on a reported basis, and net income of $1,295 million or $1.92 per share on an adjusted basis.

"BMO delivered good results in the quarter with adjusted net income of $1.3 billion and adjusted earnings per share of $1.92. Earnings growth reflects the benefits and resilience of our diversified business model, with strong contributions from our Wealth Management and BMO Capital Markets businesses, and consistent continuing investment in technology and our employees," said Bill Downe, Chief Executive Officer, BMO Financial Group.

"Personal and Commercial Banking in Canada continues to grow in customers, loans and deposits. Business and consumer confidence is strong, and while there has been a moderation in loan and deposit growth in the United States reflective of slower than anticipated business activity in the first calendar quarter, we are well-positioned to continue to build on the strength of our U.S. franchise.

"We remain confident in our ability to grow and create value in an evolving environment," concluded Mr. Downe.

Return on tangible common equity (ROTCE) was 15.7% compared with 12.8% in the prior year, and adjusted ROTCE was 15.9% compared with 14.8%.

Concurrent with the release of results, BMO announced a third quarter 2017 dividend of $0.90 per common share, up $0.02 per share and 2% from the preceding quarter, and up $0.04 per share and 5% from a year ago. The quarterly dividend of $0.90 per common share is equivalent to an annual dividend of $3.60 per common share.

Operating Segment Overview

Canadian P&CReported and adjusted net income of $531 million increased $6 million or 1% from a year ago due to higher balances across most products and increased non-interest revenue, largely offset by higher expenses and lower net interest margin.

During the quarter, we continued to build capabilities and enhance service offerings that enable customers to complete banking activities in their channel of choice, including launching free unlimited e-transfers, credit card alerts and the ability to view pending transactions. We were recognized by the global research and advisory firm Celent with the 2017 Model Bank Award for our work in advancing process automation through the effective deployment of new technology.

U.S. P&C
Reported net income of $248 million and adjusted net income of $260 million both decreased 7% from a year ago. Adjusted net income excludes the amortization of acquisition-related intangible assets.

Reported net income of US$185 million and adjusted net income of US$194 million both decreased 10% from a year ago mainly due to higher provisions for credit losses, as lower revenue was largely offset by lower expenses.

In March, BMO Harris Bank announced our consumer and small business deposit customers will now have free access to over 43,000 automated teller machines (ATMs) in the United States and 12,000 international ATMs as part of a new partnership with the Allpoint(®) ATM network.

Wealth Management Reported net income was $251 million, up $117 million or 86% from a year ago. Adjusted net income, which excludes the amortization of acquisition-related intangible assets and acquisition integration costs, was $272 million, up $114 million or 72% from a year ago. Results were strong in both traditional wealth and insurance with continued benefit from productivity initiatives. Traditional wealth reported net income of $178 million increased $112 million or 166% from a year ago. Traditional wealth adjusted net income of $199 million increased $109 million or 121%, due to the impact of an investment write-down in the prior year, growth across most of our businesses and the benefit of improved equity markets. Insurance income of $73 million increased $5 million or 8% from a year ago mainly due to business growth, partially offset by favourable market movements in the prior year with no impact in the current quarter.

BMO Private Bank was named Best Private Bank for Entrepreneurs in North America by Global Finance magazine, recognizing our understanding of North American client needs and our ability to deliver the highest level of client service.

BMO Capital Markets Reported net income of $321 million and adjusted net income of $322 million both increased 12% from a year ago. Results were driven by higher revenue with strong performance in our Investment and Corporate Banking business, partially offset by lower revenue in our Trading Products business, higher non-interest expenses and higher taxes.

BMO Capital Markets was named the World's Best Metals & Mining Investment Bank by Global Finance magazine for the 8(th) year in a row and awarded the Best Bank for the Canadian Dollar by FX Week for the 6(th) consecutive year.
