MEMPHIS, Tenn., July 16, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- First Horizon Corporation (NYSE:FHN or “First Horizon”) today reported second quarter 2021 net income available to common shareholders ("NIAC") of $295 million, or earnings per share of $0.53, compared with first quarter 2021 NIAC of $225 million, or earnings per share of $0.40. Second quarter 2021 results were reduced by a net $26 million after-tax, or $0.05 per share, of notable items largely related to the IBERIABANK Corporation Merger ("IBKC Merger") compared with a net $60 million after-tax reduction, or $0.11 per share, in first quarter 2021. Excluding notable items, adjusted second quarter 2021 NIAC of $321 million, or $0.58 per share, increased from $284 million, or $0.51 per share in first quarter.

“We demonstrated solid performance in the quarter with net income available to common shareholders of $295 million reflecting the benefit of improving overall economic conditions and credit quality, our diversified business model, and strong focus on execution despite challenging conditions across the banking industry," said President and Chief Executive Officer Bryan Jordan. “We remain focused on controlling the things we can control including expenses and deposit pricing and making investments that drive future growth. We are seeing increasing loan pipeline growth and expect demand and economic growth to pick up in the back half of the year as the economy continues to normalize.”

“It has been a little more than a year since we closed our merger with IBERIABANK,” Jordan continued, “I am extremely pleased with the progress we have made bringing two companies together and proud of our associates for their extraordinary efforts and unwavering commitment to our clients, communities and company.”
