Federal Home Loan Bank of Atlanta Announces
First Quarter 2022 Operating Highlights

 

ATLANTA, April 28, 2022 - Federal Home Loan Bank of Atlanta (the Bank) today released preliminary unaudited financial highlights for the quarter ended March 31, 2022. All numbers reported below for the first quarter of 2022 are approximate until the Bank announces unaudited financial results in its Form 10-Q filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), which is expected to be filed on or about May 6, 2022.

Net income for the first quarter of 2022 was $36 million, a decrease of $7 million, compared to net income of $43 million for the first quarter of 2021. The decrease in net income for the first quarter was primarily due to an $11 million decrease in net interest income. Net interest income for the first quarter of 2022 benefited from $10 million of derivative and hedging adjustments, while net interest income for the first quarter of 2021 benefited from $21 million of derivative and hedging adjustments. The derivative and hedging adjustments are primarily driven by changes in interest rates.

Total assets as of March 31, 2022 were $84.5 billion, an increase of $5.7 billion, or 7.24 percent, from December 31, 2021. Advances outstanding were $51.5 billion as of March 31, 2022, an increase of $6.1 billion, or 13.5 percent, from December 31, 2021. Retained earnings did not vary significantly as of March 31, 2022, compared to December 31, 2021, remaining at $2.2 billion. Capital stock was $2.7 billion as of March 31, 2022, an increase of $273 million, or 11.5 percent, from December 31, 2021. The increase in capital stock was primarily due to an increase in advances which resulted in an increase in activity based stock.

The Bank's first quarter 2022 performance resulted in an annualized return on average equity (ROE) of 3.19 percent as compared to 3.35 percent for the first quarter of 2021. The ROE spread to the average Secured Overnight Financing Rate decreased to 310 basis points for the first quarter 2022, as compared to 331 basis points for the first quarter of 2021. As of March 31, 2022, the Bank was in compliance with its regulatory capital requirements.
