Second-quarter 2015 operating-basis1 EPS was $1.37, down 1.4% compared to the second quarter of 2014, with a 2.1% increase in revenue to $2.7 billion. Servicing fees increased 2.9% compared to the second quarter of 2014 and increased 4.1% compared to the first quarter of 2015...

In announcing today's financial results, Joseph L. Hooley, State Street's chairman and chief executive officer said, "Second-quarter 2015 results reflect the strength of our core business, as evidenced by 4% growth in servicing fees compared to the first quarter of 2015, and also reflect the benefit of seasonal securities finance activity.”

Hooley continued, “Net interest revenue in the second-quarter of 2015 continued to experience pressure as a result of the ongoing low interest rate environment. Year-to-date we remain on track for the growth rate of operating-basis fee revenue to exceed the growth rate of operating-basis expenses by at least 200 basis points in 2015.”

Hooley also said, “Towards the end of the second quarter of 2015 we saw a number of significant market disruptions, including the possibility of Greece exiting the Eurozone and elevated equity market volatility in China, all of which drove markets down in June and reduced risk appetite."

Hooley concluded, "We remain focused on returning capital to our shareholders. During the second quarter of 2015, we purchased approximately $350 million of our common stock and at quarter end had approximately $1.45 billion remaining on our March 2015 common stock purchase program, authorizing the purchase of up to $1.8 billion of our common stock through June 30, 2016. We also increased our quarterly common stock dividend to $0.34 per share starting in the second quarter of 2015."
