Federal Home Loan Bank of Atlanta Announces 
Second Quarter 2017 Operating Highlights

 

ATLANTA, July 27, 2017 – Federal Home Loan Bank of Atlanta (the Bank) today released preliminary unaudited financial highlights for the quarter ended June 30, 2017. All numbers reported below for the second quarter of 2017 are approximate until the Bank announces unaudited financial results in its Form 10-Q filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission, which is expected to be filed on or about August 8, 2017.

The Bank reported net income of $86 million for the second quarter of 2017, an increase of $26 million from net income of $60 million for the second quarter of 2016. The increase in net income for the second quarter of 2017 was primarily attributable to an increase in interest rates.

The Bank's retained earnings balance was $1.9 billion as of June 30, 2017, an increase of $43 million, or 2.26 percent, from December 31, 2016. Capital stock was $4.7 billion as of June 30, 2017, a decrease of $275 million, or 5.55 percent, from December 31, 2016.

The Bank's second quarter 2017 performance resulted in an annualized return on average equity (ROE) of 4.99 percent as compared to 3.55 percent for the second quarter of 2016. The ROE spread to average three-month LIBOR increased to 378 basis points for the second quarter of 2017, as compared to 291 basis points for the second quarter of 2016. As of June 30, 2017 the Bank was in compliance with its regulatory capital requirements.
