CEO Commentary:

"We were very pleased to deliver record earnings during the quarter as well as the early achievement of our medium-term financial goals," said Steve Steinour, chairman, president and CEO. "The second quarter was marked by robust loan growth, increased average deposit balances, and 6% sequential revenue growth, benefited by higher interest rates. We achieved our targeted expense level as we completed the TCF cost synergies and delivered sustained positive operating leverage. This superb performance demonstrated the growth potential of the Huntington franchise as we drive top tier financial results for our shareholders.

"The quality of our balance sheet remains a strength, and credit continues to perform exceptionally well with record low net charge-offs.Our outstanding credit performance reflects the disciplined approach, in line with our aggregate moderate-to-low risk appetite through the cycle. We were pleased to see this validated through the recent CCAR stress test results, which included loan portfolios from the TCF acquisition, as our modeled credit loss rates continued to be near best in class. 

"Further, during the quarter, we added capabilities through bolt-on acquisitions in both Capstone and Torana. These acquisitions highlight the complementary capabilities we are adding to existing businesses and better positions us to serve our customers and support our organic growth plans.

"Finally, we were honored to again be recognized by J.D. Power as the highest in customer satisfaction among regional banks for our mobile app for the fourth consecutive year. This type of accolade demonstrates the expertise and innovation we remain committed to delivering to customers through enhanced digital capabilities and a differentiated customer experience."
