Overview

HSBC Bank Canada reported a profit before income tax expense of C$251m for the third quarter of 2013, an increase of C$7m, or 3%, compared with the third quarter of 2012, and an increase of C$69m, or 38%, compared with the second quarter of 2013. Profit before income tax expense for the nine months ended 30 September 2013 was C$702m, a decrease of C$109m, or 13%, compared with the same period in 2012.

The increase in profit before income tax expense compared with the same quarter last year and the prior quarter is mainly due to lower loan impairment charges from lower specific provisions. Higher other operating income as a result of a reduction in fair value in the second quarter of 2013 of an investment property held for sale, partially offset by lower gains from the sale of financial investments, further contributed to the increase in profit before income tax expense compared with the prior quarter.

Profit before income tax expense for the nine months ended 30 September 2012 included a gain on the sale of the full service brokerage business of C$84m and a restructuring charge of C$36m mostly relating to the wind-down of the consumer finance business. Excluding the impact of these items, profit before income tax expense for the nine months ended 30 September 2013 decreased by C$61m, or 8%, compared with the same period last year mainly due to lower net interest income from declining loan balances in connection with the wind-down of the consumer finance business and lower other operating income as result of a reduction in fair value of an investment property held for sale. The decrease is partially offset by lower operating expenses as a result of our on-going organizational effectiveness programmes, which resulted in sustainable cost savings as well as widening credit spreads on our own subordinated debentures designated at fair value. In addition offsetting the decrease were lower loan impairment charges from a reduction in collectively assessed provisions driven by lower average loan balances following the wind-down of the bank's consumer finance business.

Commenting on the results, Paulo Maia, President and Chief Executive Officer of HSBC Bank Canada, said:

"The growth in our commercial loan portfolio in the third quarter and our success in continued sustainable operating expense savings within our operations in Canada are bright spots.  We continue to face pressure from lower interest spreads.  However, our continued focus on growing our core businesses by connecting our customers to international markets and business, consistent with HSBC's global strategy, has positioned us well for future growth."

Analysis of Consolidated Financial Results for the Third Quarter of 2013

Net interest income for the third quarter of 2013 was C$319m, a decrease of C$38m, or 11%, compared with the third quarter of 2012, and a decrease of C$21m, or 6%, compared with the second quarter of 2013. Net interest income was C$995m for the nine months ended 30 September 2013, a decrease of C$132m, or 12%, compared with the same period in 2012. Net interest income decreased mainly due to declining loan balances in connection with the wind-down of the consumer finance business and lower net interest spread, partially offset by growth in average customer deposits and commercial loans.

Net fee income for the third quarter of 2013 was C$152m, a decrease of C$5m, or 3%, compared with the third quarter of 2012, and marginally lower compared with the second quarter of 2013. Net fee income was C$452m for the nine months ended 30 September 2013, marginally higher compared with the same period in 2012. The decrease in net fee income compared with the same quarter last year was mainly due to lower corporate finance fees.

Net trading income for the third quarter of 2013 was C$42m, a decrease of C$6m, or 13% compared with the third quarter of 2012, and a decrease of C$3m, or 7%, compared with the second quarter of 2013. Net trading income was C$144m for the nine months ended 30 September 2013, an increase of C$9m, or 7%, compared with the same period in 2012. The decrease in net trading income compared with both the same quarter last year and the prior quarter is mainly due to declining customer spreads related to foreign exchange products. In the first quarter of 2013, the bank implemented changes in the methodology in respect of credit and debit valuation adjustments on derivative contracts to reflect evolving market practices. On a year-to-date basis, net trading income increased mainly as a result of the change in methodology and prior year losses caused by the narrowing of credit spreads on our own debt instruments, partially offset by declining customer spreads related to foreign exchange products.

Net expense from financial instruments designated at fair value for the third quarter of 2013 was nil compared with C$8m in the third quarter of 2012 and nil in the second quarter of 2013. Net expense from financial instruments designated at fair value was C$3m for the nine months ended 30 September 2013, a decrease of C$21m, compared with the same period in 2012. The bank designates certain of its own subordinated debentures to be recorded at fair value. The decrease in net expense from financial instruments designated at fair value compared with prior year periods is largely as a result of the widening of credit spreads decreasing the fair value of these subordinated debentures.

Gains less losses from financial investments for the third quarter of 2013 were C$2m, marginally lower compared with the third quarter of 2012 and a decrease of C$13m compared with the second quarter of 2013. Gains less losses from financial investments were C$52m for the nine months ended 30 September 2013, an increase of C$4m compared with the same period in 2012. Gains less losses from financial investments decreased compared with the same quarter in 2012 and the prior quarter due to lower total gains realized from disposals of available-for-sale financial investments driven by balance sheet management activities. Gains less losses from financial investments increased compared with the nine months ended 30 September 2012 for similar reasons.

Other operating income for the third quarter of 2013 was C$7m, a decrease of C$8m compared with the third quarter of 2012, and an increase of C$30m compared with the second quarter of 2013. Other operating income was a loss of C$3m for the nine months ended 30 September 2013, a decrease of C$53m compared with the same period in 2012. The variances from comparative periods are mainly due to a reduction in fair value of an investment property held for sale of C$40m and C$8m respectively in the second and third quarters of 2013.

Gain on the sale of the full service retail brokerage business. The sale of the full service retail brokerage business closed on 1 January 2012 and resulted in a gain of C$84m, net of assets written off and directly related costs as reported in the nine months ended 30 September 2012.

Loan impairment charges and other credit risk provisions for the third quarter of 2013 were C$9m, a decrease of C$62m and C$75m respectively compared with the third quarter of 2012 and the second quarter of 2013. Loan impairment charges and other credit provisions were C$149m for the nine months ended 30 September 2013, a decrease of C$29m, or 16%, compared with the same period in 2012. The decreases in loan impairment charges and other credit risk provisions compared with the same quarter last year and the prior quarter is mainly as a result of lower specific provisions as well as a reduction in collectively assessed provisions driven by lower average loan balances following the wind-down of the bank's consumer finance business. On a year-to-date basis, the decrease in loan impairment charges and other credit risk provisions is mainly as a result of a reduction in collectively assessed provisions driven by lower average loan balances following the wind-down of the bank's consumer finance business.

Total operating expenses (excluding restructuring charges) for the third quarter of 2013 were C$271m, an increase of C$13m, or 5%, compared with the third quarter of 2012, and an increase of C$5m, or 2%, compared with the second quarter of 2013. Total operating expenses were C$800m for the nine months ended 30 September 2013, a decrease of C$45m, or 5%, compared with the same period in 2012. The increase in total operating expenses compared with both the same quarter last year and the prior quarter is mainly due to our continued investment in our Regulatory and Financial Crime Compliance function and higher employee termination costs. A general sales tax refund recorded in the third quarter of 2012 contributed to the increase in total operating expense compared with the same quarter in 2013. On a year-to-date basis, total operating expenses decreased as a result of our on-going organizational effectiveness programmes, which resulted in sustainable cost savings of C$25m in the nine months ended 30 September 2013. Cumulative sustainable cost savings from 2011 to the end of the nine months ended 30 September 2013 are in excess of C$120m. The year-to-date decrease in operating expenses is partially offset by our continued investment in our Regulatory and Financial Crime Compliance function.

Restructuring charges of C$36m were recognized in the first quarter of 2012 mainly relating to the wind-down of the bank's consumer finance business.

Share of profit in associates for the third quarter of 2013 was C$9m, an increase of C$8m compared with both the third quarter of 2012 and the second quarter of 2013. Share of profit in associates was C$14m for the nine months ended 30 September 2013, an increase of C$11m compared to the same period last year. Share of profit in associates was higher in the current quarter due to an increase in value of the bank's investment in private equity funds.

Income tax expense. The effective tax rate in the third quarter of 2013 was 26.5%, compared with 26.4% in the third quarter of 2012 and 28.8% in the second quarter of 2013. The effective tax rate was 28.4% for the nine months ended 30 September 2013, compared with 26.3% for the same period in 2012. Income tax expense in the prior quarter included a tax adjustment relating to prior periods that resulted in a higher effective tax rate for both the second quarter of 2013 and the nine months ended 30 September 2013.

Statement of Financial Position

Total assets at 30 September 2013 were C$85.6bn, an increase of C$4.9bn from C$80.7bn at 31 December 2012, mainly due to increases of C$2.2bn in trading assets, C$1.2bn in loans and advances to customers, and C$1.1bn in loans and advances to banks. The growth in trading assets is due to a higher holding of government and agency bonds as a result of increased trading activity in the rates business and a higher holding of pending settlement trading accounts. The growth in loans and advances to banks and loans and advances to customers is due to a higher holding of reverse repurchase agreements from increased liquidity and balance sheet management activities. Excluding reverse repurchase agreements, loans and advances to banks decreased marginally by C$0.1bn and loans and advances to customers decreased by C$1.4bn, mainly as a result of declining mortgage balances and consumer finance loan balances as a result of the wind-down of the consumer finance business in Canada, partially offset by a growth in commercial loans.

Liquid assets increased to C$28.8bn at 30 September 2013, compared to C$24.3bn at 31 December 2012 mainly as a result of deposit growth, debt issuance, and declining mortgage and consumer finance loan balances. Refer to the 'Use of non-IFRS financial measures' for a definition of liquid assets.

Total liabilities at 30 September 2013 were C$80.2bn, an increase of C$4.9bn from C$75.3bn at 31 December 2012, mainly due to increases of C$2.9bn in customer accounts and C$1.7bn in trading liabilities. The increase in customer accounts is mainly due to growth in savings, deposits and current accounts. The increase in trading liabilities is as a result of increased activity in the rates business.

Business Performance in the Third Quarter of 2013

Commercial Banking

Profit before income tax expense was C$167m for the third quarter of 2013, an increase of C$23m, or 16%, compared with the third quarter of 2012, and an increase of C$97m compared with the second quarter of 2013. Profit before income tax expense was C$360m for the nine months ended 30 September 2013, a decrease of C$89m, or 20%, compared with the same period in 2012. The increase in profit before income tax compared with the same quarter last year and the prior quarter is mainly due to lower specific loan impairment charges, higher other operating income from adjustments relating to a decline in the fair value of an investment property held for sale in comparative periods, and higher share of profit in associates due to an increase in value of the bank's investment in private equity funds. The increase in profit before income tax expense compared with the same quarter last year and the prior quarter is partially offset by lower net interest income from lower net interest spread in a competitive low interest rate environment and higher total operating expenses driven by our continued investment in our Regulatory and Financial Crime Compliance function.

On a year-to-date basis, profit before income tax decreased mainly due to higher specific loan impairment charges, lower operating income from adjustments related to a decline in the fair value of an investment property held for sale and lower net interest income from lower net interest spread in a competitive low interest rate environment, partially offset by higher share of profit in associates due to an increase in value of the bank's investment in private equity funds.

Global Banking and Markets

Profit before income tax expense was C$55m for the third quarter of 2013, a decrease of C$15m, or 21%, compared with the third quarter of 2012 and a decrease of C$12m, or 18%, compared with the second quarter of 2013. Profit before income tax expense was C$225m for the nine months ended 30 September 2013, a decrease of C$15m, or 6%, compared with the same period in 2012. The decrease in profit before income tax compared with the same quarter last year is mainly due to lower net interest income from reduced interest margin, lower underwriting fee income and lower net trading income from foreign exchange activities. The decrease in profit before income tax compared with the prior quarter is mainly due to lower total gains realized from disposals of available-for-sale financial investments and lower net interest income from reduced interest margin.

On a year-to-date basis, profit before income tax decreased mainly due to prior year gains on the sale of full services retail brokerage business and lower net interest income from reduced interest margin. The decrease was partially offset by higher trading income as a result of a change in valuation methodology on derivatives and prior year losses caused by the narrowing of credit spreads on our own debt instruments.

Retail Banking and Wealth Management

Profit before income tax expense for the third quarter of 2013 was C$12m, marginally lower compared with third quarter of 2012, and a decrease of C$6m, or 33%, compared with the second quarter of 2013. Profit before income tax expense was C$44m for the nine months ended 30 September 2013, a decrease of C$67m, or 60%, compared with the same period in 2012. Profit before income taxes decreased compared with the prior quarter mainly due to lower net fee income from a decline in Immigrant Investor Program volume and lower net trading income from a mark to market loss on structured products as well as reduced foreign exchange activity.

Profit before income tax in the nine months ended 30 September 2012 benefitted from a gain on the sale of the full service retail brokerage business partially offset by related restructuring charges. Excluding these items, profit before income tax expense increased by C$7m, or 19%, compared with the nine months ended 30 September 2012 mainly due to lower operating expenses as a result of cost control and continued delivery of our organizational effectiveness programmes and fee income growth, partially offset by lower net interest income due to a decline in average loan balances and lower net interest spread in a competitive low interest rate environment.

Consumer Finance

Profit before income tax expense was C$19m for the third quarter of 2013, a decrease of C$9m, or 32%, compared with the third quarter of 2012, and a decrease of C$8m, or 30%, compared with the second quarter of 2013. Profit before income tax expense was C$81m for nine months ended 30 September 2013, an increase of C$34m, or 72%, compared with the same period in 2012. Profit before income tax decreased compared with the same quarter last year as well as the prior quarter due to lower net interest income driven by lower average loan balances as well as the sale of the private label credit card portfolio in the current quarter, partially offset by lower collectively assessed impairment provisions following the decision in March 2012 to wind-down the consumer finance business in Canada. In the nine months ended 30 September 2012, C$34m restructuring costs were incurred relating to the wind-down. Excluding the restructuring costs, profit before income tax expense was unchanged compared with the nine months ended 30 September 2012.

Profit before income tax expense was a loss of C$8m for the nine months ended 30 September 2013, a decrease of C$28m, or 78%, compared with the same period in 2012.

Use of non-IFRS financial measures

HSBC Bank Canada uses certain non-IFRS financial measures to assess its performance. Non-IFRS financial measures are not defined by IFRS and do not have standardized meanings that would ensure consistency and comparability between companies using these measures. The following non-IFRS financial measures are used throughout this document and are defined below:

Adjusted cost efficiency ratio - Cost efficiency ratio adjusted to exclude gains and losses from financial instruments designated at fair value from net operating income before loan impairment charges and other credit risk positions for the period.

Assets under administration - These are assets administered by the bank on behalf of our customers. The bank does not recognise these assets on its consolidated statement of financial position because our customers are the beneficial owners.

Average total shareholders' equity to average total assets - Average shareholders' equity is calculated using month-end balances of total shareholders' equity for the period and average total assets are calculated using average daily balances for the period.

Cost efficiency ratio - Calculated as total operating expenses for the period divided by net operating income before loan impairment charges and other credit risk provisions for the period.

Liquid assets - These assets include high grade financial investments and reverse repurchase agreements, of which a certain amount is pledged as collateral to secure recognized liabilities, and contingent obligations within payment and depository clearing systems.

Net interest income, net fee income and net trading income as a percentage of total operating income - Net interest income, net fee income and net trading income for the period divided by net operating income before loan impairment charges and other credit risk provisions for the period.

Post-tax return on average assets - Profit attributable to common shareholders on an annualized basis divided by average assets, which is calculated using average daily balances for the period.

Post-tax return on average risk weighted assets - Profit attributable to common shareholders on an annualized basis divided by the average monthly balances of risk weighted assets for the period. Risk weighted assets are calculated using guidelines issued by the Office of the Superintendent of Financial Institutions Canada ('OSFI') in accordance with the Basel III capital adequacy framework (2012: Risk weighted assets are calculated using the guidelines issued by OSFI in accordance with the Basel II capital adequacy framework).

Ratio of customer advances to customer accounts - Loans and advances to customers divided by customer accounts, using period-end balances.

Return on average common equity - Profit attributable to common shareholders on an annualized basis divided by average common equity, which is calculated using month-end balances of common equity for the period.
