Capital
Repurchased 35.3 million shares, or $1.6 billion, of
common stock in second quarter 2021

Second quarter 2021 results included:
$1.6 billion, or $0.30 per share, decrease in the allowance for credit losses
$147 million gain on the sale of student loans and $79 million write-down of related goodwill (net impact of $0.01 per share)
Chief Executive Officer Charlie Scharf commented on the quarter, “Wells Fargo benefited from the continued economic recovery, strong markets that helped drive gains in our affiliated venture capital businesses, and our progress on improving efficiency, but the headwinds of low interest rates and tepid loan demand remained.”

“Credit quality continued to be exceptionally strong. Our results included a $1.6 billion pre-tax reduction in the allowance for credit losses, and charge-offs continued to decline. While we expect charge-offs will increase at some point, we continue to see strong trends in all of our businesses,” Scharf continued.

“Our top priority continues to be building an appropriate risk and control infrastructure for a company of our size and complexity and we continue to invest in additional resources and devote significant management attention to this work. At the same time, we are investing in our business to improve our competitive position for the future and our recent launch of our redesigned Wells Fargo Active CashSM Card, one of the industry’s best cash back cards, is an early example. This is the first of a redesigned card product suite to come in our card business, but we are also working across the company on products and capabilities to compete effectively in today's dynamic environment,” Scharf added.

“We know that supporting our customers and communities will continue to be an important part of our mission and while we are proud that we have supported those most in need through the pandemic there remains much more to do. Our progress during the second quarter included voluntarily extending our foreclosure moratorium on mortgage loans we own, issuing our first Sustainability Bond, and announcing the Banking Inclusion Initiative as part of our commitment to help unbanked individuals,” Scharf continued.

“In the beginning of the year we discussed a path to improving our returns. If you look at our results and exclude the significant reserve release and outsized venture capital gains, we believe we are doing what’s necessary to improve the underlying earnings power of the company and with the ability to return significant excess capital beginning in the third quarter are on a clear path to achieve double-digit ROTCE, which is the first step to achieving returns in the mid-teens,” Scharf concluded.
1 Represents the lower of our Common Equity Tier 1 (CET1) ratio calculated under the Standardized Approach and under the Advanced Approach. See tables on pages 27-28 of the 2Q21 Quarterly Supplement for more information on CET1. CET1 is a preliminary estimate.
2 Return on equity (ROE) represents Wells Fargo net income (loss) applicable to common stock divided by average common stockholders’ equity.
3 Tangible common equity and return on average tangible common equity (ROTCE) are non-GAAP financial measures. For additional information, including a corresponding reconciliation to GAAP financial measures, see the “Tangible Common Equity” tables on pages 25-26 of the 2Q21 Quarterly Supplement.
4 Comparisons in the bullet points are for second quarter 2021 versus second quarter 2020, unless otherwise specified.



In second quarter 2021, we elected to change our accounting method for low-income housing tax credit (LIHTC) investments. We also elected to change the presentation of investment tax credits related to solar energy investments. Prior period financial statement line items have been revised to conform with the current period presentation. Prior period risk-based capital and certain other regulatory related metrics were not revised. For additional information, including the financial statement line items impacted by these changes, see page 30 of the 2Q21 Quarterly Supplement.
Financial results reported in this document are preliminary. Final financial results and other disclosures will be reported in our Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended June 30, 2021, and may differ materially from the results and disclosures in this document due to, among other things, the completion of final review procedures, the occurrence of subsequent events, or the discovery of additional information.

(b)The efficiency ratio is noninterest expense divided by total revenue (net interest income and noninterest income).
Second Quarter 2021 vs. Second Quarter 2020
Net interest income decreased 11%, primarily due to the impact of lower interest rates and lower loan balances reflecting soft demand and elevated prepayments, as well as higher mortgage-backed securities premium amortization, partially offset by a decline in long-term debt
Noninterest income increased 37%, driven by improved results in our affiliated venture capital and private equity businesses and in our mortgage banking business. In addition, investment advisory and other asset-based fees increased primarily driven by higher market valuations, and card and deposit-related fees increased as well. These increases were partially offset by lower Markets revenue in Corporate and Investment Banking and lower deferred compensation plan investment results (largely offset by lower noninterest expense)
Noninterest expense decreased 8%, primarily due to lower operating losses, as well as efficiency initiatives to reduce spend on consultants and contractors. Additionally, personnel expense decreased driven by lower deferred compensation plan expense and lower salaries expense, partially offset by higher incentive and revenue-related compensation
Provision for credit losses decreased $10.8 billion as second quarter 2021 included a $1.6 billion decrease in the allowance for credit losses due to continued improvements in the economic environment, while second quarter 2020 included an $8.4 billion increase in the allowance for credit losses. Additionally, net charge-offs were down significantly from a year ago

Second Quarter 2021 vs. Second Quarter 2020
Revenue increased 14%
Consumer and Small Business Banking was up 7% primarily due to higher debit card transaction volume and higher deposit-related fees from a second quarter 2020 that included elevated fee waivers in response to the COVID-19 pandemic
Home Lending was up 40% driven by improved mortgage servicing income. Second quarter 2020 included a significant negative valuation adjustment of our mortgage servicing rights asset. Additionally, mortgage origination and sales revenue increased primarily due to higher gains from the re-securitization of loans we purchased from mortgage-backed securities last year and higher origination volume in our retail channel. These increases were partially offset by lower gains on loan portfolio sales, lower correspondent origination volume, and lower net interest income primarily driven by lower loan balances
Credit Card was up 14% on higher point-of-sale volume compared with a second quarter 2020 that had higher customer accommodations and fee waivers in response to the COVID-19 pandemic
Auto was up 7% on higher loan balances, while Personal Lending was down 16% driven by lower loan balances
Noninterest expense was down 11% predominantly due to lower operating losses, as well as lower personnel expense on lower COVID-19 related expense and the impact of efficiency initiatives

In addition, we may make forward-looking statements in our other documents filed or furnished with the Securities and Exchange Commission, and our management may make forward-looking statements orally to analysts, investors, representatives of the media and others. Forward-looking statements can be identified by words such as “anticipates,” “intends,” “plans,” “seeks,” “believes,” “estimates,” “expects,” “target,” “projects,” “outlook,” “forecast,” “will,” “may,” “could,” “should,” “can” and similar references to future periods. In particular, forward-looking statements include, but are not limited to, statements we make about: (i) the future operating or financial performance of the Company, including our outlook for future growth; (ii) our noninterest expense and efficiency ratio; (iii) future credit quality and performance, including our expectations regarding future loan losses, our allowance for credit losses, and the economic scenarios considered to develop the allowance; (iv) our expectations regarding net interest income and net interest margin; (v) loan growth or the reduction or mitigation of risk in our loan portfolios; (vi) future capital or liquidity levels, ratios or targets; (vii) the performance of our mortgage business and any related exposures; (viii) the expected outcome and impact of legal, regulatory and legislative developments, as well as our expectations regarding compliance therewith; (ix) future common stock dividends, common share repurchases and other uses of capital; (x) our targeted range for return on assets, return on equity, and return on tangible common equity; (xi) expectations regarding our effective income tax rate; (xii) the outcome of contingencies, such as legal proceedings; (xiii) environmental, social and governance related goals or commitments; and (xiv) the Company’s plans, objectives and strategies.
Forward-looking statements are not based on historical facts but instead represent our current expectations and assumptions regarding our business, the economy and other future conditions. Because forward-looking statements relate to the future, they are subject to inherent uncertainties, risks and changes in circumstances that are difficult to predict. Our actual results may differ materially from those contemplated by the forward-looking statements. We caution you, therefore, against relying on any of these forward-looking statements. They are neither statements of historical fact nor guarantees or assurances of future performance. While there is no assurance that any list of risks and uncertainties or risk factors is complete, important factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from those in the forward-looking statements include the following, without limitation: 
current and future economic and market conditions, including the effects of declines in housing prices, high unemployment rates, U.S. fiscal debt, budget and tax matters, geopolitical matters, and any slowdown in global economic growth;
the effect of the COVID-19 pandemic, including on our credit quality and business operations, as well as its impact on general economic and financial market conditions;
our capital and liquidity requirements (including under regulatory capital standards, such as the Basel III capital standards) and our ability to generate capital internally or raise capital on favorable terms;
current, pending or future legislation or regulation that could have a negative effect on our revenue and businesses, including rules and regulations relating to bank products and financial services;
developments in our mortgage banking business, including the extent of the success of our mortgage loan modification efforts, the amount of mortgage loan repurchase demands that we receive, any negative effects relating to our mortgage servicing, loan modification or foreclosure practices, and the effects of regulatory or judicial requirements or guidance impacting our mortgage banking business and any changes in industry standards;
our ability to realize any efficiency ratio or expense target as part of our expense management initiatives, including as a result of business and economic cyclicality, seasonality, changes in our business composition and operating environment, growth in our businesses and/or acquisitions, and unexpected expenses relating to, among other things, litigation and regulatory matters;
the effect of the current interest rate environment or changes in interest rates or in the level or composition of our assets or liabilities on our net interest income, net interest margin and our mortgage originations, mortgage servicing rights and mortgage loans held for sale;
significant turbulence or a disruption in the capital or financial markets, which could result in, among other things, reduced investor demand for mortgage loans, a reduction in the availability of funding or increased funding costs, and declines in asset values and/or recognition of impairments of securities held in our debt securities and equity securities portfolios;

In addition to the above factors, we also caution that the amount and timing of any future common stock dividends or repurchases will depend on the earnings, cash requirements and financial condition of the Company, market conditions, capital requirements (including under Basel capital standards), common stock issuance requirements, applicable law and regulations (including federal securities laws and federal banking regulations), and other factors deemed relevant by the Company’s Board of Directors, and may be subject to regulatory approval or conditions.
For additional information about factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from our expectations, refer to our reports filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission, including the discussion under “Risk Factors” in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2020, as filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission and available on its website at www.sec.gov5.
Any forward-looking statement made by us speaks only as of the date on which it is made. Factors or events that could cause our actual results to differ may emerge from time to time, and it is not possible for us to predict all of them. We undertake no obligation to publicly update any forward-looking statement, whether as a result of new information, future developments or otherwise, except as may be required by law.

Forward-looking Non-GAAP Financial Measures. From time to time management may discuss forward-looking non-GAAP financial measures, such as forward-looking estimates or targets for return on average tangible common equity. We are unable to provide a reconciliation of forward-looking non-GAAP financial measures to their most directly comparable GAAP financial measures because we are unable to provide, without unreasonable effort, a meaningful or accurate calculation or estimation of amounts that would be necessary for the reconciliation due to the complexity and inherent difficulty in forecasting and quantifying future amounts or when they may occur. Such unavailable information could be significant to future results.
