Bank of America Corporation (NYSE: BAC) today reported that second-quarter 2013 net income rose 63 percent to $4.0 billion from $2.5 billion in the second quarter of 2012. Earnings per diluted share increased to $0.32 from $0.19 in the second quarter of 2012. Revenue, net of interest expense, on a fully taxable-equivalent (FTE)A basis rose 3 percent to $22.9 billion from $22.2 billion a year ago.

The results for the second quarter of 2013 were driven by year-over-year improvements in net interest income, investment and brokerage income, investment banking fees, sales and trading revenue, equity investment income and credit quality as well as expense reductions. These items were partially offset by the absence of year-ago gains related to liability management actions and lower mortgage banking income.

"We are doing more business with our customers and clients, and gaining momentum across every customer group we serve," said Chief Executive Officer Brian Moynihan. "We must keep improving, but with the consumer recovering and businesses strong, we have lots of opportunity ahead.”

"At the beginning of the year, we said we would focus on three things – revenue stability, strengthening the balance sheet and managing costs," said Chief Financial Officer Bruce Thompson. "This quarter, we delivered on all three. Revenue increased 3 percent, we continued to build capital ratios, despite the negative impact of higher interest rates on our bond portfolio, and we reduced expenses related to servicing delinquent mortgage loans at a faster rate than we originally expected."
