Net interest income and other financing income increased 2%, helped by higher loan and securities yields and consumer loans balances.

Non-interest expense fell by 5% on a reported basis and 2% on an adjusted basis.

Average loans and leases rose 5% on a reported basis and 6% on an adjusted basis. Total average deposit balances decreased less than 1% from the year-ago period as reductions in low-cost deposits were partially offset by growth in time and corporate treasury deposits.
