NEW YORK – January 31, 2012 –

CIT Group Inc. (NYSE: CIT), a leading provider of financing to small businesses and middle market companies, today reported net income of $34 million, $0.17 per diluted share for the quarter, and $28 million, $0.14 per diluted share for the year ended December 31, 2011. These results compare to net income of $83 million, $0.41 per diluted share for the year-ago quarter and $526 million, $2.62 per diluted share, for the year ended December 31, 2010. The declines reflect reduced benefits from fresh start accounting (“FSA”). Pre-tax income excluding net FSA accretion and the costs associated with accelerated debt repayment1 was $140 million and $302 million for the 2011 fourth quarter and full year, respectively, and improved from pre-tax losses of $160 million and $575 million for the respective 2010 periods.

  “We made significant progress this past year advancing our goals and priorities,” said John A. Thain, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. “Our new business activity increased and we lowered our cost of funds through the reduction of high cost debt and the growth of CIT Bank and other funding sources. We will look to capitalize on this momentum in 2012 as our market leading commercial franchises are well positioned for growth. Our focus will remain on providing capital to small businesses and middle market companies, while delivering attractive and sustainable returns and increasing long-term value for all our stakeholders.”

In preparing the financial statements for the quarter and year ended December 31, 2011, management identified errors principally from periods prior to bankruptcy that were not material to any individual prior period, but determined that correcting these errors in the current period would have been material to the current period financial statements. Therefore CIT will revise its financial statements for the first three quarters of 2011, and for the years ended December 31, 2010 and 2009. These errors decreased tangible book value (“TBV”) per common share2 by $0.32 on a cumulative basis, which is reflected in the $42.35 TBV per share2 at December 31, 2011. Further information is provided in the “Prior Period Revisions” section and Appendix. All prior period data in this release reflect the revised balances.

 

Summary of Fourth Quarter Financial Results

Fourth quarter operating results reflect strong new business volume and further progress advancing our liability restructuring and ongoing portfolio optimization efforts. Pre-tax income was $80 million, up from $7 million in the prior quarter, due to improved economic margin (i.e. finance margin exclusive of FSA accretion and debt prepayment costs) and lower credit costs. The net impact of accelerated debt repayment costs and FSA accretion reduced pre-tax earnings by $60 million in the current quarter and $84 million in the third quarter. Pre-tax income for the quarter ended December 31, 2010 was $84 million and included a net pre-tax benefit of $245 million from FSA accretion and accelerated debt repayment activities. See the Non-GAAP disclosure table on page 18 for additional information.

Total assets at December 31, 2011 were $45.3 billion, up $0.7 billion from September 30, 2011, reflecting growth in commercial financing and leasing assets, and down $6.1 billion from December 31, 2010, largely reflecting asset sales and lower cash and short-term investments. While commercial loan balances increased slightly during the quarter, total loans decreased $1.9 billion to $19.9 billion primarily reflecting the transfer of $2.2 billion of student loans to held-for-sale. Operating lease equipment increased $0.8 billion to $12.0 billion primarily due to the addition of aircraft. Cash and short-term investments increased $1.0 billion during the quarter to $8.4 billion.

Funded new business volume of $2.9 billion increased 55% sequentially and 92% from the prior-year quarter, while committed new business volume of $3.3 billion increased 40% sequentially and 70% from a year ago. Corporate Finance, Transportation Finance and Vendor Finance each reported increases in both funded and committed volume when compared to both the prior quarter and prior-year quarter. Factoring volume was $6.9 billion, up from the prior quarter. Excluding the wind-down of our German factoring operation, volume increased 2% from both the prior quarter and prior-year quarter.

Net finance revenue3 decreased sequentially due to accelerated debt discount amortization and from a year ago due to lower net FSA asset accretion. Average earning assets were essentially flat sequentially at $33.8 billion and down $3.3 billion from the year ago quarter, largely due to asset sales. Net finance revenue as a percentage of average earning assets (“finance margin”) was 1.14%, compared to 2.19% last quarter and 3.08% in the prior-year quarter. Excluding FSA and debt prepayment penalties, finance margin was 2.07%, up from 1.58% in the prior quarter and 0.58% a year ago with the sequential increase reflecting the benefit of interest recoveries and further reductions in borrowing costs. The improvement from the prior-year quarter was primarily driven by lower funding costs with some ongoing benefit in asset yields from the suspension of depreciation on operating lease equipment held-for-sale. Net operating lease revenue3 increased from the third quarter due to higher asset levels as both rental and depreciation rates were stable.

Other income (excluding operating lease rentals) of $209 million decreased $33 million sequentially and $22 million from the prior-year quarter. The sequential decline largely reflects lower gains on asset sales, an increase in impairment on assets held for sale and fewer recoveries of loans charged off pre-emergence, partially offset by improved fees and other revenue. The decrease from the prior-year quarter was driven by an increase in impairment of assets held for sale and fewer recoveries of loans charged off pre-emergence. Factoring commissions of $32 million declined from the prior quarter and prior-year quarter due primarily to reduced commission rates.

Operating expenses of $221 million included $5 million of facility and severance restructuring charges. Absent the restructuring charges, operating expenses declined 4% sequentially reflecting lower compensation and benefit costs and declined 1% from the prior-year quarter reflecting reduced professional fees. Headcount at December 31, 2011 was 3,526, up 1% from September 30, 2011 and down 7% from a year ago.

The $12 million gain on debt extinguishments in the current quarter resulted from the repurchase of approximately $400 million of Series A debt at a discount, while the loss on debt extinguishments in the prior quarter was driven primarily by the write-off of original issue discount and fees associated with the repayment of the first lien term loan in August.

The provision for income taxes was approximately $44 million and predominantly reflects provisions related to income generated by our international operations. The provision also includes approximately $12 million of deferred tax expense resulting from a change in the Company’s assertions regarding indefinite reinvestment for certain unremitted foreign earnings, which was primarily driven by the fourth quarter re-evaluation of the Company’s debt and capital structures of its subsidiaries. The Company repatriated approximately $1.4 billion of cash from foreign subsidiaries during the quarter, which contributed to the repayment of Series A debt in January. The repatriation was comprised of intercompany debt and taxable dividends, the latter of which offset much of the 2011 U.S. tax loss.

Credit and Allowance for Loan Losses

Credit metrics further improved, as net charge-offs, non-accrual loans and inflows to non-accruals all declined from the prior quarter and the prior-year quarter.

Net charge-offs were $24 million, down from $46 million last quarter and $180 million in the fourth quarter of 2010. The declines were primarily in Corporate Finance and Vendor Finance. Net charge-offs in the prior year quarter were elevated in both Vendor Finance and Small Business Lending (reported in Corporate Finance) due to an acceleration of charge-offs based on delinquency status in selected small-ticket portfolios. Net charge-offs do not reflect recoveries of loans charged off pre-emergence and loans classified as held for sale. Recoveries on these loans are recorded in other income and totaled $30 million, $36 million and $70 million for the current quarter, the prior quarter and the fourth quarter of 2010, respectively.

The fourth quarter provision for credit losses was $16 million, down from $47 million last quarter and $182 million in the prior year quarter. The trend in the provision reflects improved portfolio credit quality, including a reduction in specific reserves.

Non-accrual loans were $702 million at December 31, 2011, down $212 million and $915 million from the prior quarter and the prior-year quarter, respectively, as all commercial segments reported declines from the prior periods, both in amount and as a percentage of receivables. The decline in Corporate Finance reflected the first phase of a loan portfolio sale in excess of $200 million, of which approximately $60 million in non-performing loans were sold in the fourth quarter. In the 2012 first quarter, we expect to close sales of substantially all of the December 31, 2011 Corporate Finance held for sale assets of $214 million, the majority of which are non-performing.

The allowance for loan losses at December 31, 2011 was $408 million, down from $414 million at September 30, 2011 and $416 million at December 31, 2010. The decrease from the prior periods reflected improved credit quality. As a percentage of finance receivables, the allowance was 2.05%, up from 1.90% at September 30, 2011 and 1.69% at December 31, 2010. For the same time periods, the allowance as a percentage of finance receivables for the commercial segments was 2.69%, 2.78% and 2.51%, respectively.

Management also evaluates credit performance with credit metrics that exclude the impact of FSA. On this basis, gross charge-offs were $55 million, down from $86 million in the prior quarter and $306 million in the prior-year quarter. On the same basis, non-accrual loans of $0.8 billion decreased from $1.0 billion at September 30, 2011 and $2.0 billion at December 31, 2010.

Capital and Funding

Preliminary Tier 1 and Total Capital ratios at December 31, 2011 were 18.8% and 19.7%, respectively, unchanged from September 30, 2011. Preliminary risk-weighted assets totaled $44.8 billion at December 31, 2011, compared to $44.7 billion at September 30, 2011. Book value per share at December 31, 2011 was $44.31, compared to $44.38 at September 30, 2011 and $44.52 at December 31, 2010, as the increase in accumulated other comprehensive loss offset net income. Tangible book value per share at December 31, 2011 was $42.35, compared to $42.37 at September 30, 2011 and improved from $42.23 at December 31, 2010.

Cash and short-term investment securities totaled $8.4 billion at December 31, 2011, which was comprised of $7.4 billion of cash and $0.9 billion of short-term investments. These balances were up from $7.3 billion at September 30, 2011 and down from $11.2 billion at December 31, 2010. Cash and short-term investment securities at December 31, 2011 consisted of $4.1 billion at the bank holding company, $2.5 billion at CIT Bank, $0.9 billion at operating subsidiaries and $0.9 billion in restricted balances. The restricted balances declined due to reduced amounts in the cash sweep account to $24 million. We had approximately $1.9 billion of unused and committed liquidity under a $2 billion revolving credit facility at December 31, 2011.

During the fourth quarter, we completed various liability restructuring transactions to lower our cost of capital and improve profitability.

· Received approximately $1.1 billion of proceeds from existing long-term committed financing facilities that are structured as total return swaps (TRS). Assets funded through the TRS in the quarter consisted of approximately $0.9 billion of railcars under operating leases and approximately $0.6 billion of government guaranteed student loans. Including these facilities, committed secured facilities at December 31, 2011 totaled $6.4 billion, of which $2.9 billion was undrawn. 
· Received approximately $0.4 billion in aggregate proceeds from an existing facility guaranteed by the European Export Credit Agencies and secured by several Airbus aircraft that were delivered in 2011. 
· Redeemed at par the remaining balance of $500 million of Education Funding Capital Trust-II, a student lending securitization established in 2003. Most of the student loans underlying this securitization were refinanced through the TRS. The acceleration of FSA discount accretion related to this redemption increased fourth quarter 2011 interest expense by $88 million. 
· Reduced the Series A Notes by approximately $860 million, which increased interest expense by $74 million for the acceleration of FSA discount accretion and prepayment penalties, and resulted in a gain on debt extinguishment of $12 million. We redeemed the remaining $460 million of notes

 maturing in 2014 and periodically repurchased at a discount approximately $400 million of notes maturing in 2016 and 2017.   

On January 23, 2012, we redeemed an additional $2 billion of Series A Notes, which consisted of the remaining $1.6 billion due in 2015, and approximately $0.4 billion due in 2016. On January 19, 2012 we announced that we will redeem on February 21, 2012 an additional $500 million of Series A Notes maturing in 2016. In aggregate, these actions will increase the 2012 first quarter interest expense by approximately $165 million for the acceleration of FSA discount accretion. Approximately $4 billion of Series A Notes due in 2016 and 2017 will remain outstanding after these redemptions.

 

Segment Highlights4

Corporate Finance

Corporate Finance pre-tax earnings were $168 million, up from $30 million in the prior quarter and $54 million in the prior-year quarter. The current quarter benefited from a significant gain on non-accrual asset sales, a high level of interest recoveries and lower credit costs. When compared to the prior-year quarter, these items more than offset a decline in FSA accretion income.

Financing and leasing assets were essentially flat from the prior quarter at $7.1 billion. New committed loan volume rose 10% from the third quarter to $1.2 billion, while new funded volume increased 40% to $921 million. Current period volumes, both funded and committed, were significantly above those of the prior-year period. Approximately 70% of U.S. funded volume was originated by CIT Bank.

Non-accrual loans declined 26% from September 30, 2011 to $0.5 billion primarily reflecting sales and repayments. Net charge-offs were $10 million, down from $41 million in the prior quarter, reflecting both a decline in gross charge-offs and an increase in recoveries.

Transportation Finance

Transportation Finance pre-tax earnings were $24 million, down from $98 million in the prior quarter and up from $13 million in the prior-year quarter. The sequential decrease reflects lower gains on assets sales, impairment charges on assets transferred to held for sale and higher interest expense resulting from increased FSA debt accretion. During the quarter, we recorded impairment charges of $24 million, primarily relating to the transfer of center-beam railcars to assets held for sale. Comparisons to 2010 periods reflect lower interest expense in 2011 due to changes in segment capitalization allocations instituted in 2011. On a comparable basis, pre-tax earnings would have been

$70 million in the prior year quarter. Current period charge-offs reflected a single loan in the aerospace and defense lending portfolio.

Equipment utilization remained strong. Including commitments, at December 31, 2011 all commercial aircraft except for one were leased and rail fleet utilization was over 97%. Rental income was up slightly, consistent with higher asset levels. Financing and leasing assets increased $1 billion to $13.3 billion. New business volume was $1.2 billion, reflecting the addition of 15 aircraft and over 1,600 railcars, and $0.2 billion of loans originated by CIT Bank. All aircraft to be delivered during the next 12 months have lease commitments.

Trade Finance

Trade Finance pre-tax income was $9 million for the quarter, down from pre-tax income of $11 million in the prior quarter and up from $4 million in the prior-year quarter. The sequential decline is primarily due to lower factoring commissions and recoveries.

Factoring volume was $6.9 billion, up slightly from the third quarter and down from $7.0 billion in the 2010 fourth quarter, due to the wind-down of our German factoring operation. Core factoring volume increased approximately 2% from the 2010 fourth quarter. Non-accrual balances decreased from the prior quarter, primarily due to paydowns.

Vendor Finance

Vendor Finance pre-tax earnings were $33 million, down from $85 million in the prior quarter and $60 million in the prior-year quarter. The sequential decline reflected gain on sale of underperforming loans in the third quarter and continued reduction of FSA accretion. The decline from the prior-year quarter was driven primarily by lower assets levels, lower FSA accretion and renewal income offset by declining credit costs. 

Financing and leasing assets rose $0.1 billion to $5.0 billion. The increase was due primarily to higher new business volumes and lower asset sales. Funded new business volume was $717 million, an 11% sequential increase and a 17% increase from the prior-year quarter. Excluding the impact of platforms sales, the volume increased 28% from the prior-year quarter. The U.S. funded volume for the current quarter was essentially all originated in CIT Bank.

Portfolio credit quality improved. Charge-offs, provisions and non-accrual loans declined and remained at historically low levels.

Consumer Finance

Consumer Finance reported a pre-tax loss of $109 million compared to earnings of $10 million in the prior quarter and $2 million in the prior-year quarter. The 2011 fourth quarter pre-tax loss was driven by approximately $88 million of accelerated FSA debt accretion expense related to the redemption of the student lending securitization previously discussed. Pre-tax results also reflected

 
 8

impairment charges on $2.2 billion of government-guaranteed student loans transferred to held-for-sale, partially offset by a gain on $1.1 billion of loans sold. The carrying value of student loans held for investment at year-end was $4.7 billion, which included $0.6 billion in CIT Bank, down from $6.9 billion at September 30, 2011 and $8.0 billion a year ago.

Corporate and Other

Corporate and other included a $12 million gain on debt extinguishments, while the prior quarter included $147 million of losses on debt extinguishments. Corporate and other also included restructuring charges of $5 million and $32 million for the current and prior-year quarters, respectively.

In addition, Corporate and other retains unallocated interest expense including prepayment penalties on second lien debt and certain corporate liquidity costs, which were allocated to the segments in 2010. The 2011 periods reflect refinements to the risk-based economic capital allocated to each of the segments. These changes reduced the interest expense charged to Transportation Finance, but were not significant to the other segments.

CIT Bank

CIT continued to expand the commercial loans and deposits of CIT Bank (“the Bank”). Asset origination activity reflected increased volume from Corporate Finance, Vendor Finance and Transportation Finance. Committed loan volume rose 13% from the prior quarter to $1.4 billion, of which $1.1 billion was funded. Total assets were $9.0 billion, up from $7.5 billion at September 30, 2011. Loans totaled $4.5 billion, down from $5.7 billion from September 30, 2011. While commercial loans increased $1.0 billion to $3.9 billion, consumer loans decreased due primarily to transfers to held for sale and sales. Assets held for sale totaled $1.6 billion, up from $0.6 billion at September 30, 2011. Cash was $2.5 billion at December 31, 2011, up from $0.8 billion at September 30, 2011.

Total deposits were $6.1 billion at December 31, 2011, up from $4.9 billion at September 30, including an increase of $0.6 billion of non-brokered deposits. During the fourth quarter, the Bank placed approximately $1.3 billion of deposits at an average rate of approximately 1.6% that replaced maturing deposits at higher rates. In October, we launched an online bank that offers a range of CDs to consumers (go to BankOnCIT.com for more information). CIT Bank’s preliminary Total Capital ratio was 39.4% and the Tier 1 Leverage ratio was 24.7%.

Full Year 2011 Results

CIT’s 2011 results reflect progress on our strategic priorities, which included: growth in our commercial businesses, improving economic profitability including reducing our cost of capital and

 
 9

operating expenses, and expanding the role of CIT Bank both in asset origination and funding capabilities.

Full year 2011 net income was $28 million, down from $526 million in 2010 reflecting a sharp decline in net FSA accretion benefit and increased costs related to debt redemptions. Likewise, reported pre-tax income declined from $779 million in 2010 to $190 million in 2011. However, pre-tax results excluding net FSA accretion and the costs associated with accelerated debt repayment5 improved significantly, from a $575 million loss in 2010 to $302 million of income in 2011.

These improved results reflect significant declines in credit and borrowing costs that more than offset the impact of lower earning asset levels and reduced recoveries on pre-emergence charge-offs (recorded in other income).

Total financing and leasing assets declined $3 billion to $34 billion, with $2 billion of the decline coming from our liquidating government-guaranteed student lending portfolio. Commercial assets declined $0.8 billion, to $27.9 billion as a 73% increase in commercial new business volume was offset by portfolio collections and the sale of $2.4 billion of low-yielding/non-core assets.

Portfolio quality improved. Net charge-offs of $265 million, declined from $465 million in 2010 with the majority of the improvement in Vendor Finance. For the Commercial segments, net charge-offs as a percentage of finance receivables improved from 2.04% in 2010 to 1.68% in 2011. The provision for credit losses was $270 million, down from $820 million in 2010. In addition to the improved credit metrics, the trend reflects higher provisions in 2010 in order to rebuild an allowance for credit losses following the Company’s adoption of fresh start accounting in 2009.

Since January 2010, CIT has eliminated or refinanced over $17 billion of high cost first and second lien debt, including $9.5 billion during 2011 and $2 billion in January 2012. During 2011 we also completed over $7.5 billion of secured financings, including a $2 billion revolving credit facility, and exchanged $8.8 billion of Series A debt into Series C debt during 2011. These activities, in conjunction with net deposit growth of $1.7 billion, reduced our weighted average coupon rates on outstanding deposits and long-term borrowings from 5.31% at December 31, 2010 to 4.71% at December 31, 2011.

CIT continued to advance the growth and diversification of CIT Bank during 2011. CIT Bank funded 72% of total U.S. loan volume in 2011, up from 39% in 2010, and originated assets across all four commercial segments. Total assets at the bank increased nearly 30% to $9.0 billion and CIT Bank ended 2011 with a Tier One Capital Ratio in excess of 38%. Deposits grew by 35% during 2011 to $6.1 billion, including deposits from our online bank.

Prior Period Revisions

As part of a management review of operational procedures, it was determined that refunds of unresolved credits are owed to certain of our Trade Finance customers (i.e. typically retailers). Although not material to any given period, the aggregate amount of the credits is approximately $68 million, approximately 0.02% of the factoring volume for the affected periods, which accumulated over the ten year period ending in early 2011. Approximately $66 million of the balance relates to activity that occurred prior to December 31, 2009, the convenience date for our adoption of fresh start accounting. When reviewing this error in conjunction with other immaterial errors impacting prior periods, management concluded that the corrections did not, individually or in the aggregate, result in a material misstatement of the Company's consolidated financial statements for any prior period, but correcting these items in the current quarter would have been material to the 2011 statement of operations. Accordingly, management has revised in this release, and will revise in subsequent quarterly filings on Form 10-Q and its 2011 Form 10-K, its previously reported financial statements for 2011, 2010 and 2009.

As it relates to the Trade Finance obligation, we recorded a liability and a charge to income in 2009 of approximately $66 million, with the remainder of the liability and charge to income being recorded in 2010 ($1.8 million) and 2011 ($0.5 million). As a result of our adoption of fresh start accounting, the recognition of the $66 million liability resulted in a corresponding increase to goodwill.

Tables reflecting the previously reported balances, required corrections and revised amounts impacting the income statements and balance sheets, along with descriptions of significant corrections are included in the accompanying financial tables.

Non-GAAP Measurements

Net finance revenue and net operating lease revenue are non-GAAP measurements used by management to gauge portfolio performance. ‘Pre FSA’ is non-GAAP and provides the user with additional data that is more comparable to historical and peer disclosures. Pre-tax income excluding net fresh-start accounting accretion and costs related to the repayment of debt is a non-GAAP measurement used by management to compare period over period operating results. Tangible book value and tangible book value per share are non-GAAP metrics to analyze banks.

Description of corrections                
(1) Interest and fees on loans have been revised to reflect a reclassification of cash payments received on assets held for sale incorrectly recognized as ‘interest income’ rather than ‘other income’, and an adjustment necessary to reduce an FSA discount on an unfunded commitment that was not appropriately decreased when the associated line was reduced in September 2010 and interest income on an investment, which was previously reported on a net basis. Also impacting this line item is the correction of interest income related to a specific Vendor portfolio and other immaterial items.
(2) Interest on long term borrowings has been revised to primarily reflect interest due on a secured debt obligation, which was recorded on a net rather than a gross basis, as well as other immaterial items.
(3) Rental income on operating leases has been revised to correct for the timing of recognition of cash receipts on certain nonaccrual accounts.
(4) Other income has been revised to reflect the reclassification of cash payments received on assets held for sale incorrectly recognized as ‘interest income’ rather than ‘other income’, the release of an aircraft maintenance liability not appropriately reflected at the time of disposition, the correction of the timing of recognition of unrealized gains relating to warrants, as well as other immaterial items.
(5) Operating expenses have been revised for an incorrect recording of servicing costs, to correct for timing of capital tax obligations, as well as other immaterial items.
(6) Provision for income taxes was decreased as a result of items arising from tax account reconciliations and recording the above adjustments.

(2) Investment securities has been revised to record the gross amount of an investment, which was previously reflected net of funding.
(3) The outstanding loan balance has been revised principally to reflect the reclassification  of FSA discounts on active but undrawn credit lines from loans, where they reduced the outstanding balance, to other liabilities, as well as other immaterial corrections.
(4) Revisions to Goodwill correspond to the recording of corrections that impacted pre December 2009 results. As required by Fresh Start Accounting, stockholders' equity was stated at fair value at December 31, 2009, therefore the net effect of the aforementioned corrections was an adjustment to Goodwill.
(5) Other assets has been revised primarily to reflect the reclassification of certain deferred tax assets previously recorded in a deferred tax liability account, a correction to reclassify certain payables previously recorded as a reduction of other assets, as well as other immaterial corrections.
(6) Other liabilities increased primarily due to corrections relating to reclassification of FSA discounts on active but undrawn credit lines from loans, the reclassification of certain deferred tax assets previously recorded in a deferred tax liability account, the recording of Trade Finance customer obligations, and a correction to reclassify certain payables previously recorded as a reduction of other assets, as well as other immaterial corrections.
(7) Long term borrowings increased to record the funding of an investment, which was previously reflected on a net basis.
(8) Accumulated earnings changed due to the adjustments to net income.
