"While the Bank's second quarter results were significantly impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic, we have remained fully operational and prioritized the health and safety of our employees. The Bank has a long history of standing by our customers in challenging times, and our dedicated teams have ensured we have provided financial relief to millions of our customers across our footprint. The Bank remains well positioned from a capital and liquidity perspective, and we are appropriately reserved for potential credit losses. Our repositioning efforts and significant investments in technology over the last number of years have allowed us to support our customers during this difficult time. We launched several new digital banking solutions this quarter which enabled the Bank to provide financial relief to approximately 300,000 Canadian households and processed over 2 million customer assistance applications for customers across the International Banking footprint.

We were also proud to support our communities across our footprint having committed over $15 million to support people who are most at risk during the pandemic, including our partner programs and our ongoing support of hospitals and healthcare professionals. They deserve our gratitude for their courage in the face of this unprecedented public health crisis.

On behalf of Scotiabank's leadership team, I would like to extend my sincere thanks to all of our employees for providing customers with the critical banking services they need. Thank you for your flexibility and adaptability and quickly adjusting to new work environments and work loads, continuing to put our customers first, and for supporting one another and our communities. We are proud to see everyone coming together across teams and businesses to make it work – and I have no doubt this cooperation will continue for as long as this challenging time continues," said Brian Porter, President and CEO of Scotiabank.

Non-GAAP Measures

The Bank uses a number of financial measures to assess its performance. Some of these measures are not calculated in accordance with Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP), which are based on International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS), are not defined by GAAP and do not have standardized meanings that would ensure consistency and comparability among companies using these or similar measures. The Bank believes that certain non-GAAP measures are useful in assessing ongoing business performance and provide readers with a better understanding of how management assesses performance. These non-GAAP measures are used throughout this press release and are defined in the "Non-GAAP Measures" section in the Second Quarter 2020 Report to Shareholders.

Adjusted results and diluted earnings per share

The following tables present reconciliations of GAAP Reported financial results to non-GAAP Adjusted financial results. The financial results have been adjusted for the following:

1) Acquisition and divestiture-related amounts – Acquisition and divestiture-related amounts are defined as:

A) Acquisition-related costs

  1. Integration costs – Includes costs that are incurred and relate to integrating the acquired operations and are recorded in the Global Wealth Management and International Banking operating segments. These costs will cease once integration is complete. The costs relate to the following acquisitions:
    • Banco Cencosud, Peru (closed Q2, 2019)
    • Banco Dominicano del Progreso, Dominican Republic (closed Q2, 2019)
    • MD Financial Management, Canada (closed Q4, 2018)
    • Jarislowsky, Fraser Limited, Canada (closed Q3, 2018)
    • Citibank consumer and small and medium enterprise operations, Colombia (closed Q3, 2018)
    • BBVA, Chile (closed Q3, 2018)
  2. Amortization of Acquisition-related intangible assets, excluding software. These costs relate to the six acquisitions above, as well as prior acquisitions and are recorded in the Canadian Banking, Global Wealth Management and International Banking operating segments.

B)  Net (gain)/loss on divestitures – The Bank announced a number of divestitures in 2019 in accordance with its strategy to reposition the Bank. The (gain)/loss on the divestitures is recorded in the Other segment, and relates to the following divestitures:

  • Equity-accounted investment in Thanachart Bank, Thailand (closed Q1, 2020)
  • Colfondos AFP, Colombia (closed Q1, 2020)
  • Operations in Puerto Rico and USVI (closed Q1, 2020)
  • Insurance and banking operations in El Salvador (closed Q1, 2020)
  • Insurance and pension operations in Dominican Republic (closed Q2, 2019)

2) Allowance for credit losses (ACL) – Additional Scenario – The Bank modified its ACL measurement methodology in Q1, 2020 by adding an additional, more severe pessimistic scenario, consistent with developing practice among major international banks in applying IFRS 9, and the Bank's prudent approach to expected credit loss provisioning. The modification resulted in an increase in provision for credit losses of $155 million which was recorded in Canadian Banking, Global Wealth Management, International Banking and Global Banking and Markets operating segments.

3) Derivative Valuation Adjustment – The Bank enhanced its fair value methodology primarily relating to uncollateralized OTC derivatives which resulted in a pre-tax charge of $116 million in Q1, 2020. This charge was recorded in the Global Banking and Markets and Other operating segments. 

4) Impairment charge on software asset – The Bank recorded an impairment loss in the Other operating segment of $44 million pre-tax in Q1, 2020, related to one software asset.

Business Segment Review

Reorganization of Business Segments

Effective November 1, 2019, the Bank established Global Wealth Management as a separate business segment. Wealth Management results previously reported in the Canadian Banking and International Banking business segments are now being reported in the new business segment. Prior period comparative information for Canadian Banking and International Banking has been restated to reflect this change.

The Bank will now publish financial information across five business segments including:

  • Canadian Banking (excluding Canadian Wealth Management)
  • International Banking (excluding International Wealth Management)
  • Global Wealth Management (including Canadian Wealth Management and International Wealth Management)
  • Global Banking and Markets; and
  • Other

Canadian Banking

Q2 2020 vs Q2 2019

Net income attributable to equity holders was $477 million, compared to $819 million. Adjusted net income was $481 million, a decline of $342 million or 42%. The decline was due primarily to higher provision for credit losses on performing loans, lower non-interest income, and higher non-interest expenses, partly offset by higher net interest income driven by strong asset and deposit volume growth.

Q2 2020 vs Q1 2020

Net income attributable to equity holders declined $375 million or 44%.  Adjusted net income declined by $427 million or 47%. The decline was due primarily to higher provision for credit losses on performing loans, lower non-interest income, and lower net interest income, partly offset by lower non-interest expenses.

Year-to-date Q2 2020 vs Year-to-date Q2 2019

Net income attributable to equity holders was $1,329 million, a decline of $351 million or 21%.  Adjusted net income declined by $299 million or 18%. The decline was due primarily to higher provision for credit losses on performing loans, higher non-interest expenses and lower non-interest income, partly offset by higher net interest income driven by strong asset and deposit volume growth.

International Banking

Financial Performance on a Reported Basis

Q2 2020 vs Q2 2019

Net income attributable to equity holders was $173 million, a decrease of $465 million, or 73%. Adjusted net income attributable to equity holders was $197 million, a decrease of $527 million or 73%. The decline was due largely to higher provision for credit losses and the impact of divested operations.

Q2 2020 vs Q1 2020

Net income attributable to equity holders decreased by $345 million or 67%. Adjusted net income attributable to equity holders decreased $418 million or 68%.  The decline was due largely to higher provision for credit losses, the impact of divested operations and the benefit of one additional month of earnings from the Alignment of the reporting period of Mexico with the Bank ("Alignment of reporting period") last quarter.

Year-to-date Q2 2020 vs Year-to-date Q2 2019

Net income attributable to equity holders decreased by $668 million or 49%. Adjusted net income attributable to equity holders decreased $655 million or 45%. The decline was due largely to higher provision for credit losses and the impact of divested operations.

Financial Performance on a Constant Dollar Basis
The discussion below on the results of operations is on a constant dollar basis that excludes the impact of foreign currency translation, which is a non-GAAP financial measure (refer to "non-GAAP" measures section in the Second Quarter 2020 Report to Shareholders).The Bank believes that reporting in constant dollar is useful for readers in assessing ongoing business performance.

Q2 2020 vs Q2 2019

Net income attributable to equity holders was $173 million, a decrease of $440 million, or 72%. Adjusted net income attributable to equity holders was $197 million, a decrease of $496 million or 72%, due largely to higher provision for credit losses and the impact of divested operations.

Q2 2020 vs Q1 2020

Net income attributable to equity holders decreased by $341 million or 66%. Adjusted net income attributable to equity holders decreased $412 million or 68%. This was due largely to higher provision for credit losses and the impact of divested operations.  The remaining decline was due to the benefit of one additional month of earnings from the Alignment of the reporting period of Mexico with the Bank ("Alignment of reporting period") last quarter.

Year-to-date Q2 2020 vs Year-to-date Q2 2019

Net income attributable to equity holders decreased by $657 million or 49%. Adjusted net income attributable to equity holders decreased $636 million or 44%, due largely to higher provision for credit losses and the impact of divested operations.

Global Wealth Management

Q2 2020 vs Q2 2019

Net income attributable to equity holders was $302 million, an increase of $10 million or 3%. Adjusted net income increased to $314 million, up 3%.  This growth is due primarily to higher brokerage fees and net interest income partially offset by the impact of divestitures. The impact of divested operations reduced earnings growth by 4%.

Q2 2020 vs Q1 2020

Net income attributable to equity holders declined $4 million or 1%.  Adjusted net income declined by $4 million or 1% due to lower fee-based revenue from market depreciation, partly offset by lower volume related expenses. The prior quarter benefit of one additional month of earnings from the Alignment of the reporting period of Mexico with the Bank ("Alignment of reporting period") impacted earnings growth by 2%.

Year-to-date Q2 2020 vs Year-to-date Q2 2019

Net income attributable to equity holders was $608 million, an increase of $43 million or 8%. Adjusted net income increased to $632 million, up 7%.  This growth is due primarily to higher fee income partially offset by higher non-interest expenses. The impact of divested operations and the Alignment of reporting period reduced earnings growth by 2%.

Global Banking and Markets

Q2 2020 vs Q2 2019

Net income attributable to equity holders was $523 million, an increase of $103 million or 25%. Higher net-interest income, non-interest income and the favourable impact of foreign currency translation was partly offset by higher provision for credit losses and higher non-interest expenses.

Q2 2020 vs Q1 2020

Net income attributable to equity holders increased by $151 million or 41%. Adjusted net income attributable to equity holders increased by $72 million or 16%. This was due mainly to higher net-interest income and non-interest income, and lower non-interest expenses, partly offset by higher provision for credit losses.

Year-to-date Q2 2020 vs Year-to-date Q2 2019

Net income attributable to equity holders was $895 million, an increase of $140 million or 19%. Adjusted net income attributable to equity holders was $974 million, an increase of $219 million or 29%. This was due to higher non-interest income, partly offset by higher provision for credit losses and higher non-interest expenses.

Other

Q2 2020 vs Q2 2019

Net loss attributable to equity holders was $166 million, compared to a net gain of $20 million in the same period last year. Adjusted net loss attributable to equity holders declined by $44 million. This was driven mainly by the metals business charges of $212 million and incremental costs from COVID-19. This was partly offset by higher net interest income from asset/liability management activities, as well as gains on sale of investment securities.

Q2 2020 vs Q1 2020

Net loss attributable to equity holders was $166 million, a decrease of $405 million. Adjusted net loss attributable to equity holders decreased by $131 million, driven mainly by metals business charges of $212 million and incremental costs from COVID-19.

Allowance for credit losses

The total allowance for credit losses as at April 30, 2020 was $6,079 million. The allowance for credit losses for loans was $6,005 million, up $984 million from the prior quarter and $928 million from October 31, 2019.  The increase was due primarily to higher retail and commercial loan provisions which were driven by an unfavourable macroeconomic outlook related mainly to higher unemployment, lower GDP and unfavourable market conditions in the Oil & Gas sector globally.  This was partly offset by the impact of foreign currency translation.  The increase from Q4, 2019 was also due to impact of the alternate scenario partially offset by divestitures. 

The allowance on impaired loans increased to $1,643 million from $1,533 million last quarter and $1,595 million as at October 31, 2019 due primarily to higher provisions in International Retail and higher provisions in Canadian and International commercial banking portfolios. The allowance against performing loans was higher at $4,362 million compared to $3,488 million as at January 31, 2020 and $3,482 million as at October 31, 2019 due primarily to higher retail and commercial provisions for loans driven by unfavourable macroeconomic outlook, mainly for unemployment and GDP, and unfavourable market conditions in the Oil & Gas sector globally.

Capital Ratios

The Bank's Common Equity Tier 1 (CET1) capital ratio was 10.9% at April 30, 2020, a decrease of approximately 50 basis points from the prior quarter, due primarily to internal generation which was more than offset by higher drawn balances in corporate and commercial lending, counterparty credit risk and credit valuation adjustment risk-weighted assets. The CET1 ratio also benefited 10 basis points from OSFI's transitional adjustment for the partial add back of increases in Stage 1 and Stage 2 expected credit losses (ECL) relative to their baseline levels as at January 31, 2020.

The Bank's Tier 1 and Total capital ratios were 11.9% and 14.0%, respectively, a decrease of approximately 60 basis points from the prior quarter, due primarily to the above noted impacts to the CET1 ratio.  

The Bank's Leverage ratio was 4.4% at April 30, 2020, an increase of approximately 40 basis points from the prior quarter, due primarily to OSFI's temporary Leverage ratio exclusions for central bank reserves and sovereign-issued securities, which were partly offset by growth in the Bank's consolidated assets.  

As at April 30, 2020, the CET1, Tier 1, Total capital and Leverage ratios were well above OSFI's minimum capital ratios.

Statements of this type are included in this document, and may be included in other filings with Canadian securities regulators or the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, or in other communications. In addition, representatives of the Bank may include forward-looking statements orally to analysts, investors, the media and others. All such statements are made pursuant to the "safe harbor" provisions of the U.S. Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995 and any applicable Canadian securities legislation. Forward-looking statements may include, but are not limited to, statements made in this document, the Management's Discussion and Analysis in the Bank's 2019 Annual Report under the headings "Outlook" and in other statements regarding the Bank's objectives, strategies to achieve those objectives, the regulatory environment in which the Bank operates, anticipated financial results, and the outlook for the Bank's businesses and for the Canadian, U.S. and global economies.

The future outcomes that relate to forward-looking statements may be influenced by many factors, including but not limited to: general economic and market conditions in the countries in which we operate; changes in currency and interest rates; increased funding costs and market volatility due to market illiquidity and competition for funding; the failure of third parties to comply with their obligations to the Bank and its affiliates; changes in monetary, fiscal, or economic policy and tax legislation and interpretation; changes in laws and regulations or in supervisory expectations or requirements, including capital, interest rate and liquidity requirements and guidance, and the effect of such changes on funding costs; changes to our credit ratings; operational and infrastructure risks; reputational risks; the accuracy and completeness of information the Bank receives on customers and counterparties; the timely development and introduction of new products and services; our ability to execute our strategic plans, including the successful completion of acquisitions and dispositions, including obtaining regulatory approvals; critical accounting estimates and the effect of changes to accounting standards, rules and interpretations on these estimates; global capital markets activity; the Bank's ability to attract, develop and retain key executives; the evolution of various types of fraud or other criminal behaviour to which the Bank is exposed; disruptions in or attacks (including cyber-attacks) on the Bank's information technology, internet, network access, or other voice or data communications systems or services; increased competition in the geographic and in business areas in which we operate, including through internet and mobile banking and non-traditional competitors; exposure related to significant litigation and regulatory matters; the occurrence of natural and unnatural catastrophic events and claims resulting from such events; the emergence of widespread health emergencies or pandemics, including the magnitude and duration of the COVID-19 pandemic and its impact on the global economy and financial market conditions and the Bank's business, results of operations, financial condition and prospects; and the Bank's anticipation of and success in managing the risks implied by the foregoing. A substantial amount of the Bank's business involves making loans or otherwise committing resources to specific companies, industries or countries. Unforeseen events affecting such borrowers, industries or countries could have a material adverse effect on the Bank's financial results, businesses, financial condition or liquidity. These and other factors may cause the Bank's actual performance to differ materially from that contemplated by forward-looking statements. The Bank cautions that the preceding list is not exhaustive of all possible risk factors and other factors could also adversely affect the Bank's results, for more information, please see the "Risk Management" section of the Bank's 2019 Annual Report, as may be updated by quarterly reports.

Material economic assumptions underlying the forward-looking statements contained in this document are set out in the 2019 Annual Report under the headings "Outlook", as updated by quarterly reports.
