Ameriprise Financial Reports First Quarter 2013 Results

First quarter 2013 net income from continuing operations attributable to Ameriprise Financial per diluted share was $1.58. First quarter 2013 operating earnings per diluted share were $1.59.

Company raises regular quarterly dividend by 16 percent, or $0.07 per diluted share, to $0.52.

MINNEAPOLIS--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Ameriprise Financial, Inc. (NYSE: AMP) today reported first quarter 2013 net income from continuing operations attributable to Ameriprise Financial of $336 million, or $1.58 per diluted share, compared to $245 million, or $1.06 per diluted share, a year ago. First quarter 2013 operating earnings were $338 million, or $1.59 per diluted share, compared to $335 million, or $1.45 per diluted share, a year ago.

First quarter 2013 operating net revenues increased 4 percent from a year ago to $2.6 billion, primarily driven by strong Ameriprise client net inflows and market appreciation, partially offset by the decline in net investment income from low interest rates and the company’s decision to end certain banking operations last year. Excluding revenues from former banking operations in the prior year, operating net revenues would have increased 5 percent.

First quarter 2013 operating expenses increased 5 percent to $2.1 billion, reflecting higher distribution costs and disclosed benefits last year. Operating general and administrative expenses declined 3 percent reflecting lower bank-related expenses in the quarter. Excluding former banking operations, expenses were essentially flat compared to a year ago as the company’s re-engineering efforts offset investments in the business.

The company continues to return capital to shareholders while maintaining a strong financial foundation. The company returned $454 million to shareholders through share repurchases and dividends during the quarter.

Return on shareholders’ equity excluding accumulated other comprehensive income (AOCI) was 14.0 percent for the 12 months ended March 31, 2013. Operating return on equity excluding AOCI was 16.4 percent for the same time period.

“Ameriprise delivered strong results in the first quarter,” said Jim Cracchiolo, chairman and chief executive officer. “Our fee-based businesses are leading our growth with a very good quarter for our wealth management business where we are generating strong advisor productivity and client net inflows.”

“Our operating return on equity hit a high of 16.4 percent in the quarter, and we see opportunities to continue to grow our return over time. Our business generates strong free cash flow that we’re returning to shareholders through share repurchases and dividends. In fact, we’re increasing our regular quarterly dividend, raising it another 16 percent.”

Advice & Wealth Management pretax operating earnings increased 39 percent to $131 million reflecting strong revenue growth, continued expense management, and ongoing investments in the business, partially offset by a $10 million decline in earnings from continued low interest rates. First quarter 2013 pretax operating margin was 12.9 percent compared to 9.9 percent a year ago. The year-ago quarter included earnings from Ameriprise Bank, which ceased certain banking operations in the fourth quarter of 2012. Former banking operations contributed 130 basis points to first quarter 2012 operating margin.

Operating net revenues increased 7 percent to $1.0 billion driven by record retail client net inflows and market appreciation, partially offset by the previously mentioned bank transition. Underlying operating net revenues increased 10 percent, when excluding former banking operations.

Operating expenses increased 3 percent to $887 million, primarily reflecting higher distribution expenses associated with business growth. General and administrative expenses declined by 9 percent, demonstrating ongoing expense discipline, lower expenses associated with completion of the brokerage platform conversion, and lower ongoing bank expense. Underlying expenses declined 3 percent, when excluding former banking operations.

Total retail client assets grew 11 percent to $372 billion and operating net revenue per advisor, excluding results from former banking operations, increased 9 percent.

Asset Management pretax operating earnings increased 10 percent to $144 million, driven by equity market appreciation and continued revenue and expense reengineering, partially offset by the impact of net outflows and one fewer fee day. First quarter 2013 adjusted net pretax operating margin was 34.6 percent compared to 33.3 percent a year ago.

Operating net revenues increased 5 percent to $746 million, primarily driven by growth in assets from market appreciation and reengineering benefits, partially offset by the impact of net outflows as well as one fewer fee day than the year-ago quarter.

Operating expenses increased 4 percent to $602 million driven by market growth. General and administrative expenses increased 2 percent and remained well controlled, reflecting ongoing expense discipline and reengineering.

Total segment assets under management increased 1 percent from a year ago to $466 billion, reflecting market appreciation, partially offset by net outflows and the impact of foreign exchange.

Asset Management net outflows of $5.7 billion in the quarter were driven by net outflows in institutional portfolios, while retail net flows were essentially flat. Strong Threadneedle retail net inflows were offset by net outflows at Columbia. Institutional net outflows of $5.5 billion were primarily from legacy insurance assets and low basis point former parent influenced mandates.

Fixed annuity net flows (millions) $ (269 ) $ (187 ) (44 )%
 
NM Not Meaningful — variance of greater than 100%
 

Annuities pretax operating earnings declined 17 percent to $156 million. The decline was driven by benefits in the 2012 quarter described in the table above, as well as lower net investment income reflecting the low interest rate environment.

Variable annuity operating earnings were $109 million and both the current and prior periods included favorable market impacts—the prior period also included model updates described in the table above. However, adjusting for these items, earnings increased 7 percent as market appreciation was partially offset by $7 million of higher reserve funding and higher amortization of DAC related to the unlocking of interest rate assumptions in the third quarter of 2012.

Fixed annuity operating earnings declined 16 percent to $47 million primarily from the continued low interest rate environment. Fixed annuity results benefitted from the income accretion related to bank assets transferred in the fourth quarter of 2012, which was offset in the Corporate segment.

RiverSource variable annuity account balances increased 6 percent to $71 billion driven by market appreciation. Variable annuity net outflows in the quarter reflected the closed book of annuities sold through third parties and $36 million of net inflows in the Ameriprise channel. RiverSource fixed annuity account balances declined 3 percent to $14 billion due to ongoing net outflows resulting from low client demand given current interest rates.

Protection pretax operating earnings increased by 3 percent to $110 million as strong results in life and health were largely offset by lower auto and home earnings.

Life and health earnings grew 13 percent reflecting business growth and favorable expenses, including lower health claims and continued strong persistency. Life and health insurance cash sales increased 12 percent to $67 million from growth in indexed universal life and continued improvement in variable universal life sales.

Auto and home results reflected solid premium growth, largely offset by increased reserves for auto liability loss development. Steady growth in auto and home policies continued, up 9 percent compared to a year ago.

Corporate & Other pretax operating loss was $81 million for the quarter compared to $65 million a year ago. Losses were $11 million higher primarily due to how the Company accounts for the transfer of former bank assets. The loss in Corporate was offset by the associated incremental accretion income, primarily in the Annuities segment.
