JPMorgan Chase has reported financial results for the fourth quarter 2011.
- For its Card Services unit, Chase reported net income of $1.1 billion, a decrease of $497 million, or 32%, compared with the prior year. The decrease was driven by a $1.7 billion lower reduction in the allowance compared with the prior year, predominantly offset by lower net charge-offs.
- Excluding the Washington Mutual and Commercial Card portfolios, Card Services net revenue as a percentage of average loans was 11.64%, compared with 11.78% in the prior year and 11.68% in the prior quarter.
- Excluding the Washington Mutual and Commercial Card portfolios, Credit Card sales volume was $91.0 billion, up 9% compared with the prior year and 7% compared with the prior quarter; excluding also the impact of the Kohl's portfolio sale, sales volume was up 14% compared with prior year.
