After adjusting for certain one-time items, the adjusted earnings per share came to $2.81, falling short of the analysts’ forecast of $3.68 according to FactSet.

Net interest income experienced a 3% decline, totaling $1.74 billion, surpassing the anticipated amount of $1.72 billion projected by analysts surveyed by FactSet.

He acknowledged that commercial clients were affected by the decline in commercial real estate values and higher interest rates, but expressed confidence in the bank’s ability to overcome these challenges.
