FHLBNY Announces 3Q 2011 Operating Highlights
New York, NY – The Federal Home Loan Bank of New York (“Bank”) today released its unaudited financial highlights as of and for the quarter ended September 30, 2011.
“In the current economic environment, our members expect stability, reliability and consistency,” said Alfred A. DelliBovi, president and CEO of the Federal Home Loan Bank of New York. “And as our solid results in the third quarter of 2011 reflect, that is what we at the Federal Home Loan Bank of New York provide to our members every day.”
Highlights from the third quarter of 2011 include:
- Net income for the quarter was $35.7 million, and return on average equity (“ROE”) was 2.72 percent. These figures compare to net income of $53.3 million and ROE of 4.35 percent for the second quarter of 2011.
- As of September 30, 2011, total assets were $97.3 billion, a decrease of $2.9 billion, or 2.9 percent, from total assets of $100.2 billion as of December 31, 2010. The decrease in total assets from the end of 2010 was primarily a result of a decline in advances of $7.4 billion, or 9.1 percent, from $81.2 billion as of December 31, 2010, to $73.8 billion as of September 30, 2011. This decline in member demand for advances was driven by economic factors such as continued growth in members’ deposit bases and the availability of other liquidity options.
- As of September 30, 2011, total capital was $5.09 billion, a decrease of $49 million, or 1.0 percent, from $5.14 billion as of December 31, 2010. The lower capital level was largely due to the increase in the deferred losses in Accumulated Other Comprehensive Income (Loss) from hedging activities. In addition, the Bank’s unrestricted retained earnings decreased by $11.6 million to $700.5 million as of September 30, 2011. At September 30, 2011, the Bank met its regulatory capital-to-assets ratios and liquidity requirements.
The Bank currently expects to submit its Form 10-Q for the third quarter of 2011 to the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission on or before November 11, 2011.
