Use of Non-GAAP Measures and Regulatory Measures that are not GAAP
Certain measures included in this report are “non-GAAP,” meaning they are not presented in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the U.S. and also are not codified in U.S. banking regulations currently applicable to FHN. Although other entities may use calculation methods that differ from those used by FHN for non-GAAP measures, FHN’s management believes such measures are relevant to understanding the financial condition, capital position, and financial results of FHN and its business segments. Non-GAAP measures are reported to FHN’s management and Board of Directors through various internal reports.
The non-GAAP measures presented in this earnings release are fully taxable equivalent measures, core net interest income (“NII”), pre-provision net revenue (“PPNR”), loans and leases excluding paycheck protection program (‘PPP”) and/or Loans to Mortgage Companies (“LMC”), return on average tangible common equity (“ROTCE”), tangible common equity (“TCE”) to tangible assets (“TA”), tangible book value (“TBV”) per common share, and various consolidated and segment results and performance measures and ratios adjusted for notable items.
Presentation of regulatory measures, even those which are not GAAP, provide a meaningful base for comparability to other financial institutions subject to the same regulations as FHN, as demonstrated by their use by banking regulators in reviewing capital adequacy of financial institutions. Although not GAAP terms, these regulatory measures are not considered “non-GAAP” under U.S. financial reporting rules as long as their presentation conforms to regulatory standards. Regulatory measures used in this financial supplement include: common equity tier 1 capital (“CET1”), generally defined as common equity less goodwill, other intangibles, and certain other required regulatory deductions; tier 1 capital, generally defined as the sum of core capital (including common equity and instruments that cannot be redeemed at the option of the holder) adjusted for certain items under risk based capital regulations; and risk-weighted assets, which is a measure of total on- and off-balance sheet assets adjusted for credit and market risk, used to determine regulatory capital ratios.
Refer to the tabular reconciliation of non-GAAP to GAAP measures and presentation of the most comparable GAAP items in the financial results exhibit to FHN’s Form 8-K, beginning on page 23.
