Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce Posts Lower Q3 Earnings



Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce (CIBC) reported a decline in its fiscal third-quarter earnings due to increased provisions for credit losses amid a challenging economic environment. Despite this setback, the bank’s overall revenue for the quarter showed a modest increase.

Financial Performance

During the three months ending on July 31, CIBC recorded net income of 1.43 billion Canadian dollars ($1.06 billion), or C$1.47 per share. This figure is lower than the previous year’s earnings of C$1.67 billion or $1.78 per share.

The reported earnings for the quarter included expenses of C$25 million for a commodity tax and $23 million in amortization related to acquisition-related intangible assets.

When adjusted for these costs, CIBC’s earnings stood at C$1.52 per share. However, this missed analysts’ mean estimate of C$1.68, according to a survey conducted by FactSet.

Revenue Performance

Despite the decline in earnings, CIBC’s overall revenue for the quarter increased by 5% year-on-year, reaching C$5.85 billion. This figure closely matches the analysts’ expectation of C$5.8 billion.

While the Canadian personal and business banking operations experienced a decrease in income compared to the previous year due to higher credit losses provision and lower card fees, the bank’s capital markets division reported higher revenue, contributing to the overall increase in revenue.

Provisions for Credit Losses

CIBC’s provision for credit losses amounted to C$736 million, which is C$493 million higher than the same period previous year. The increase in provisions is mainly attributed to the shift in economic outlook and higher impairments across all strategic business units of the bank.

Capital Position

CIBC’s common equity Tier 1 capital ratio stood at 12.2% for the quarter, compared to 11.9% at the end of the previous quarter.


CIBC’s fiscal third-quarter earnings faced challenges due to increased provisions for credit losses in a more difficult economic environment. However, the bank’s overall revenue showed a modest increase. With ongoing efforts to manage credit risks and capital position, CIBC aims to navigate the current challenging conditions and strive for sustainable growth.
