WESTLAKE, Texas, October 15, 2021 - The Charles Schwab Corporation announced today that its net income for the third quarter of 2021 was a record $1.5 billion compared with $1.3 billion for the second quarter of 2021, and $698 million for the third quarter of 2020. Net income for the nine months ended September 30, 2021 was $4.3 billion, compared with $2.2 billion for the year-earlier period. The company's financial results include TD Ameritrade from October 6, 2020 forward, as well as certain acquisition and integration-related costs and the amortization of acquired intangibles. For the third quarter and first nine months of 2021, these transaction-related expenses totaled $257 million and $828 million, respectively, on a pre-tax basis. In addition, the company's results for the first nine months of 2021 included a non-deductible charge of approximately $200 million regarding a previously disclosed regulatory matter.

CEO Walt Bettinger said, "Guided by our "Through Clients' Eyes" strategy, Schwab continues to drive robust business momentum as we support investors through an uneven economic recovery. While bullish sentiment largely persisted throughout the third quarter, debates regarding the overall pace of economic growth, the potential path of inflation, and the ultimate impact of certain global market disruptions weighed on this optimism - contributing to the S&P 500® ending September essentially flat versus June 30. Through it all, investors consistently turned to Schwab as a trusted financial partner, opening over a million new brokerage accounts for the fourth consecutive quarter - bringing year-to-date new brokerage accounts to 6.0 million. We generated core net new assets of $139.0 billion in the quarter, pushing asset gathering for the first nine months of the year to $396.0 billion, representing an 8% annualized organic growth rate.

Total client assets ended September at $7.61 trillion, up from $6.69 trillion at year-end 2020. In addition, while the third quarter is often viewed as a slower period for client activity, engagement levels showed persistent strength through the summer months - daily average trade volumes softened only modestly versus the prior quarter to 5.5 million."

Mr. Bettinger continued, "We believe our 'no trade-offs' approach to combining value, service, transparency and trust has enabled us to continue meeting the needs of the expanding population of individual investors and independent investment advisors who look to Schwab for support. Clients remained highly engaged with our banking services during the third quarter, as demonstrated by a 21% increase in mortgage originations and 66% growth in Pledged Asset Line® balances on a year-over-year basis. Additionally, investor interest in low-cost investing solutions elevated our Schwab-managed ETFs to a record $251.6 billion in assets, up 49% year-over-year. Retail clients also sought out our help and guidance; over $437 billion of assets were enrolled in one of our advisory offerings at month-end September, representing an increase of 24% from a year ago. Finally, in support of our independent investment advisors we further enhanced the digital onboarding experience for new accounts to include integrated funding, end-client editing capabilities, and detailed status tracking, among other improvements. This streamlined and collaborative functionality minimizes the potential for errors and delays, saving advisors time to focus on creating and building relationships."

"I am incredibly proud of all the great work our team of talented employees have poured into serving our clients and each other this year and throughout the pandemic," Mr. Bettinger concluded. "Their unwavering focus has kept the TD Ameritrade integration on track, helped advance our other key strategic initiatives, and yielded outstanding operating and financial performance for our company. As such, we rewarded them by implementing a special 5% pay increase, effective at the end of September. Additionally, to better reflect the changing ways our employees live and work, we introduced a hybrid workplace program designed to provide greater flexibility while still maintaining our strong, interconnected culture. Investing in our talent, alongside other platform and service investments, allows us to continue building the future of modern wealth management."

CFO Peter Crawford added, "Consistent execution of our strategy and sustained business momentum, in combination with our diversified revenue model, helped produce impressive financial performance in the third quarter. Net interest revenue grew 4% versus the second quarter of 2021, driven by further expansion of our interest-earning asset base, including strength in lending activity and rising investment portfolio balances. This expansion more than offset a decline in securities lending revenue as well as a lower average yield on outstanding margin loans. Asset management and administration fees increased 5% sequentially, driven by rising balances in both proprietary and third-party mutual fund and ETF offerings and advisory solutions. Trading revenue edged up 1% as a higher proportion of derivatives bolstered revenue per trade in the third quarter, offsetting the impact of an 8% slowdown in activity overall. Turning to expenses, our total GAAP spending declined 9% sequentially to $2.6 billion, which included $104 million in acquisition and integration-related costs and $153 million in amortization of acquired intangibles. Exclusive of these items (1), adjusted total expenses were down 8% quarter-over-quarter. The sequential declines in GAAP and adjusted expenses largely reflect lower Other expenses due to the non-recurring nature of the regulatory charge in the second quarter. The combination of our revenue growth and steady expense discipline enabled us to produce a 44.0% pre-tax profit margin - 49.6% on an adjusted basis (1) - our highest quarterly level since late 2019."

Mr. Crawford concluded, "As we navigated the third quarter's mixed macroeconomic environment, we worked to further enhance our liquidity position and streamline our capital structure. In August, we issued $850 million in long-term senior notes, marking our third debt issuance in 2021. We also completed a tender offer to exchange nearly $2 billion of TD Ameritrade Holding Corporation debt for an equal amount of equivalent Charles Schwab Corporation debt. Both organic client activity and the previously announced bank deposit account migrations helped our consolidated balance sheet reach $607.5 billion as of September 30, and the company's preliminary Tier 1 Leverage Ratio was 6.3%. Our ongoing ability to maintain a healthy balance sheet and strong capital base enabled us to deliver a 12% return on equity and 23% ROTCE (1) for the quarter. Supported by the outstanding work of the entire Schwab team, we continue to operate from a position of strength, leveraging our sustained business momentum to keep building long-term stockholder value."

THE CHARLES SCHWAB CORPORATION
Non-GAAP Financial Measures
(In millions, except ratios and per share amounts)
(Unaudited)
In addition to disclosing financial results in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the U.S. (GAAP), Schwab's third quarter earnings release contains references to the non-GAAP financial measures described below. We believe these non-GAAP financial measures provide useful supplemental information about the financial performance of the Company, and facilitate meaningful comparison of Schwab's results in the current period to both historic and future results. These non-GAAP measures should not be considered a substitute for, or superior to, financial measures calculated in accordance with GAAP, and may not be comparable to non-GAAP financial measures presented by other companies.

Schwab's use of non-GAAP measures is reflective of certain adjustments made to GAAP financial measures as described below.
Non-GAAP Adjustment or Measure Definition Usefulness to Investors and Uses by Management
Acquisition and integration-related costs and amortization of acquired intangible assets Schwab adjusts certain GAAP financial measures to exclude the impact of acquisition and integration-related costs incurred as a result of the Company's acquisitions, amortization of acquired intangible assets, and, where applicable, the income tax effect of these expenses.

Adjustments made to exclude amortization of acquired intangible assets are reflective of all acquired intangible assets, which were recorded as part of purchase accounting. These acquired intangible assets contribute to the Company's revenue generation. Amortization of acquired intangible assets will continue in future periods over their remaining useful lives.
Return on tangible common equity Return on tangible common equity represents annualized adjusted net income available to common stockholders as a percentage of average tangible common equity. Tangible common equity represents common equity less goodwill, acquired intangible assets - net, and related deferred tax liabilities. Acquisitions typically result in the recognition of significant amounts of goodwill and acquired intangible assets. We believe return on tangible common equity may be useful to investors as a supplemental measure to facilitate assessing capital efficiency and returns relative to the composition of Schwab's balance sheet.

Beginning in 2021, the Company also uses adjusted diluted EPS and return on tangible common equity as components of performance criteria for employee bonus and certain executive management incentive compensation arrangements. The Compensation Committee of CSC's Board of Directors maintains discretion in evaluating performance against these criteria.
