Santander Consumer USA Holdings Inc. Reports Fourth Quarter and Full Year 2020 Results

02/03/21
Net Income of $911 million and Nearly $31 billion in Originations in 2020
Provided Loan Deferrals to ~700,000 Unique Customer Accounts in 2020 Due to COVID-19
Returned Nearly $1 billion in Capital to Shareholders in 2020

DALLAS, Feb. 3, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Santander Consumer USA Holdings Inc. (NYSE: SC) ("SC" or the "Company") today announced net income for the fourth quarter ended December 31, 2020 ("Q4 2020") of $521 million, or $1.70 per diluted common share. Net income for the full year 2020 ("2020") was $911 million, or $2.87 per diluted common share.

As a result of the Federal Reserve Board's extended interim policy (the "Interim Policy"), SC is prohibited from paying a dividend in the first quarter of 2021. Although SC's standalone income is sufficient, SC consolidates into SHUSA's capital plan and, therefore, the calculation of the restrictions uses SHUSA's average trailing four quarters of income, which is insufficient to permit dividends under the Interim Policy. SHUSA has requested certain exceptions to the Interim Policy, however, the timing and outcome of the request is uncertain.

Also, as previously announced, the Company substantially exhausted the shares of SC common stock that the Company was permitted to repurchase under the previously disclosed exception to the Interim Policy approved by the Federal Reserve Bank. Consistent with the Interim Policy, the Company may continue to repurchase a number of shares of SC common stock equal to the amount of share issuances related to the Company's expensed employee compensation.

Management Quotes

"I am very pleased with our 2020 results, particularly given the challenges presented by the pandemic. Over the course of the year, we responded quickly to execute a work from home strategy for the entire organization, and implemented additional paid emergency leave and premium pay for frontline employees. SC provided relief to nearly 700,000 customers, via loan deferrals, and achieved all-time highs in our customer satisfaction scores. We continued to support FCA participating in incentive programs and assisting FCA customers through lessee extensions and first payment deferrals. We supported our communities through the SC Foundation, which donated over $3 million to organizations caring for those hardest hit by the crisis. I am very excited about our recently announced partnership with Operation Hope, which will provide our employees with the financial literacy tools needed for a successful future. We have a clear strategic vision focused on dealer and customer satisfaction, enhancing our digital presence and achieving sustainable profitability," said Mahesh Aditya, SC President and CEO.

Fahmi Karam, SC Chief Financial Officer, added, "Despite the challenges in 2020, we earned $911 million in net income, originated $31 billion across loans and leases and returned nearly $1 billion in capital to our shareholders. We also strengthened our balance sheet, ending the year at a CET1 Ratio of 14.6% and a loan loss reserve of $6.1 billion, which positions SC well to handle the remaining uncertainty in the macro environment. We are pleased with the continued strength of the portfolio's performance and remain focused on generating assets with strong risk-adjusted returns to drive long-term shareholder value."

The Company's allowance for credit losses decreased $42 million and increased $3.1 billion for the three and twelve months ended December 31, 2020, respectively. For the three months ended December 31, 2020, the decrease is in line with decrease in portfolio balance compared to previous quarter. For the twelve months ended December 31, 2020, the primary drivers were $2.1 billion increase at CECL adoption on January 1, 2020, driven mainly by the addition of lifetime expected credit losses for non-TDR loans, and additional reserves specific to COVID-19 risk.

(a)

Under the banking agencies' risk-based capital guidelines, assets and credit equivalent amounts of derivatives and off-balance sheet exposures are assigned to broad risk categories. The aggregate dollar amount in each risk category is multiplied by the associated risk weight of the category. The resulting weighted values are added together with the measure for market risk, resulting in the Company's total Risk weighted assets.



(b)

CET1 is calculated under Basel III regulations required as of January 1, 2015. The fully phased-in capital ratios are non-GAAP financial measures.



(c)

As described in our 2019 annual report on Form 10-K, on January 1, 2020, we adopted ASU 2016-13, Financial Instruments -Credit Losses ("CECL"), which upon adoption resulted in a reduction to our opening retained earnings balance, net of income tax, and increase to the allowance for credit losses of approximately $2 billion. As also described in our 2019 10-K, the U.S. banking agencies in December 2018 had approved a final rule to address the impact of CECL on regulatory capital by allowing banking organizations, including the Company, the option to phase in the day-one impact of CECL until the first quarter of 2023. In March 2020, the U.S. banking agencies issued an interim final rule that provides banking organizations with an alternative option to delay for two years an estimate of CECL's effect on regulatory capital, relative to the incurred loss methodology's effect on regulatory capital, followed by a three-year transition period. The Company elected this alternative option instead of the one described in the December 2018 rule.
