GLOBAL CORPORATE AND INVESTMENT BANK2004 NET INCOME BY REGION*
[EDGAR REPRESENTATION OF GRAPHIC DATA]
Global Corporate and Investment Bank (GCIB) reported net income of $2.038 billion, $5.371 billion, and $3.172 billion in 2004, 2003, and 2002, respectively. The 2004 period reflects a decrease of $4.382 billion in Other Corporate, primarily reflecting the $4.95 billion (after-tax) WorldCom and Litigation Reserve Charge, offset by an increase of $753 million or 16% in Capital Markets and Banking and $296 million or 40% in Transaction Services. The increase in 2003 net income reflects increases of $1.376 billion in Other Corporate, primarily reflecting the absence of a $1.3 billion after-tax charge in 2002 related to the establishment of reserves for regulatory settlements and related civil litigation, $647 million or 16% in Capital Markets and Banking, and $176 million or 31% in Transaction Services. The increase in the average risk capital is due largely to the impact on operational risk capital of the WorldCom and Litigation Reserve Charge and the acquisition of KorAm.
Capital Markets and Banking net income of $5.395 billion in 2004 increased $753 million or 16% compared to 2003, primarily due to a lower provision for credit losses as well as an increase in Lending, Fixed Income and Equity Markets revenues. The increase in expenses was driven by higher incentive compensation, the impact of recent acquisitions, higher legal reserves, and increased investment spending on strategic growth initiatives. Net income of $4.642 billion in 2003 increased $647 million or 16% compared to 2002, primarily reflecting a lower provision for credit losses, increases in Fixed Income Markets and the absence of prior-year redenomination losses in Argentina, partially offset by mark-to-market losses on credit derivatives (which serve as an economic hedge for the loan portfolio) as credit spreads tightened.
Transaction Services net income of $1.041 billion in 2004 increased $296 million or 40% from 2003, primarily due to higher revenue reflecting growth in assets under custody and liability balances, improved spreads, a benefit from foreign currency translation and the impact of KorAm, and a lower provision for credit losses, partially offset by higher expenses. Transaction Services net income of $745 million in 2003 increased $176 million or 31% from 2002, primarily due to a lower provision for credit losses, the benefit of lower taxes due to the application of APB 23 indefinite investment criteria and business consolidation, as well as lower expenses resulting from expense control initiatives.
