CEO Commentary:

"Our first quarter results were highlighted by sustained organic growth, with deposit and loan balances continuing to expand as we enter the new year," said Steve Steinour, chairman, president, and CEO. "Our outlook for the year remains unchanged as we look to accelerate organic growth.

"Huntington entered 2024 from a position of strength with robust liquidity and capital, enabling us to remain focused on executing key growth initiatives. We are investing in new revenue producing opportunities, adding talented bankers across the footprint, and bolstering capabilities in the commercial and regional bank. These investments are already delivering results, evidenced by robust pipelines in our expanded Carolinas and Texas regions, as well as in new commercial specialty banking areas.

"Credit quality continued to perform very well, with stable net-charge offs compared to the prior quarter as we maintain our disciplined approach to managing credit quality, consistent with our aggregate moderate-to-low risk appetite. The economic outlook continues to show strength and resiliency, and we believe the environment is constructive for our customers to perform well.

"We foresee accelerating loan growth over the course of the year as new teams and expanded markets continue to see substantive opportunities in addition to our existing markets. We expect this growth momentum will carry through the year and into 2025, further supporting our revenue and profitability outlook."
