The net interest margin was 2.94 percent.The company also returned $2.1 billion of capital to common shareholders and repurchased 36 million common shares.”The quarter had more than its fair share of volatility and our results speak to the resilience of our franchise globally,” said Michael Corbat, CEO of Citigroup. “And despite revenue headwinds, we once again proved our ability to manage our risk, our expenses and our capital. We remain on track to deliver our full-year efficiency and ROA targets. I feel good about the quality and consistency of our earnings over the course of this year, as we have continued to make solid progress against our core priorities.U.S. Bancorp was also slightly profitable in the third quarter, with a net income of $1.489 billion, or $0.81 per share, up from$1.483 billion in the previous quarter and up from $1.471 billion in the same quarter last year.The company attributes the rise in year-over-year net income to higher net interest income and noninterest income, along with reduced credit losses provisions.

Davis expressed that he was “proud of the financial performance our 67,000 employees delivered in the third quarter.”“Overall, our actions to generate growth in our balance sheet and revenues, combined with our deliberate efforts to optimize our expense management initiatives, resulted in a solid quarter and put us on a positive forward-looking trajectory,” he said. “As U.S. Bancorp pursues its vision for the future, we are focused on sustainable growth.
