JPMorgan Chase Confident In First Republic Takeover, Raises 2023 NII Guidance by $3B

JPMorgan Chase & Co JPM raised its net interest income (NII) guidance to around $84 billion for 2023 on Monday. 

The new guidance is higher than the company's earlier expectation of $81 billion, stated during the Q1 2023 call

The upgraded guidance reflects JPM's optimism about the takeover of First Republic Bank FRCB

The acquisition included $173 billion in loans and $30 billion in securities, as well as an assumption of about $92 billion in deposits. JPMorgan expects to recognize an upfront gain of $2.6 billion and remain well capitalized with a CET1 ratio in line with its Q1 2024 target of 13.5%.

The bank expects NII in the mid-$70 billion range and a return on tangible common equity of around 17% in the medium term.
