Net interest income up 1% Q/Q with NIM up 2 bps to 3.26% (up 16 bps from a year ago).

Noninterest revenue of $526M up 6.2% from a year ago, with mortgage revenue off 23%.

Adjusted noninterest expense is roughly flat from a year ago.

Charge-offs and loan-loss provision comparisons are tricky thanks to the above-mentioned move.
