NEWARK, Del., Oct 22, 2018
 — Sallie Mae (Nasdaq: SLM), formally SLM Corporation, today released third-quarter 2018 financial results that include growth in diluted earnings per share and private education loan originations, a lower provision for private education loan losses, and increased net interest income. In the third-quarter 2018, the company increased its diluted earnings per share 35 percent to $0.23, grew its private education loan originations 12 percent to $2.1 billion, reduced its provision for private education loan losses 20 percent to $42 million, and increased its net interest income 26 percent to $357 million, all compared with the third quarter of 2017.
“Our continued focus on customer experience enhancements and application process efficiencies have resulted in another outstanding peak season with undergraduates, graduates, and parents selecting Sallie Mae to make the dream of higher education a reality,” said Raymond J. Quinlan, Chairman and CEO, Sallie Mae. “Strong brand perception, credit quality, and repayment performance are the foundation of our expanding franchise.”
For the third-quarter 2018, GAAP net income was $104 million, compared with $76 million in the year-ago quarter. GAAP net income attributable to the company’s common stock was $100 million ($0.23 diluted earnings per share) in the third-quarter 2018, compared with $73 million ($0.17 diluted earnings per share) in the year-ago quarter. The year-over-year increase was primarily attributable to a $75 million increase in net interest income and a $20 million decrease in income tax expense as a result of the reduction of the federal statutory corporate income tax rate from 35 to 21 percent, which were offset by a $15 million increase in provisions for credit losses, a $7 million increase in losses on derivatives and hedging activities, net, and a $34 million increase in total non-interest expenses.
Third-quarter 2018 results vs. third-quarter 2017 included:
Net interest income of $357 million, up 26 percent.
Net interest margin of 6.00 percent, up 15 basis points.
Private education loan originations of $2.1 billion, up 12 percent.
