Regions Financial Reports Drop in Q1 Earnings Amid Rising Costs

Regions Financial experienced a decrease in first-quarter earnings, primarily due to higher credit costs and operational expenses. The bank reported a net income of $368 million, or 37 cents per share, down from $391 million, or 39 cents per share in the previous quarter, and significantly lower than the $612 million, or 62 cents per share, a year earlier. The decline in earnings was attributed to a $22 million impact from ongoing check fraud issues and a rise in noninterest expenses, which increased by 6% to $1.1 billion. Despite these challenges, the bank has implemented new fraud prevention measures and expects these issues to represent the peak of expenses for the year.
