Net interest income grew 5% year-over-year, while non-interest income increased 3% in the recently ended quarter. Average loans and average deposits both increased 3% versus the year-ago quarter. Provision for credit losses more than doubled to $189 million.

“PNC delivered a very good first quarter. Year over year, we grew net income, and compared with fourth quarter 2018, net interest income was stable despite two fewer days, our net interest margin expanded and we kept expenses flat. While the provision increased reflecting our solid loan growth, overall credit quality remained strong. Additionally, we grew capital, providing us with flexibility into the future,” said CEO Bill Demchak.

On April 4, 2019, the PNC Board declared a quarterly cash dividend of 95 cents per share effective with the May 5, 2019 dividend payment date. Two other banking giants JPMorgan (JPM) and Wells Fargo (WFC) have reported their quarterly results today. Citigroup (C) is expected to report its quarterly results on Monday.
