Federal Home Loan Bank of Dallas Reports Second Quarter 2020
Operating Results

DALLAS, TEXAS, July 29, 2020 - The Federal Home Loan Bank of Dallas (Bank) today reported net income of $67.0 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2020. In comparison, for the quarters ended March 31, 2020 and June 30, 2019, the Bank reported net income of $51.6 million and $54.1 million, respectively. For the six months ended June 30, 2020, the Bank reported net income of $118.5 million, as compared to $112.5 million for the six months ended June 30, 2019.

Total assets at June 30, 2020 were $75.0 billion, compared with $83.8 billion at March 31, 2020 and $75.4 billion at December 31, 2019. The $8.8 billion decrease in total assets for the second quarter was attributable primarily to decreases in the Bank's advances ($8.3 billion), mortgage loans held for portfolio ($0.3 billion) and short-term liquidity holdings ($0.2 billion). The $0.4 billion decrease in total assets for the six months ended June 30, 2020 was attributable primarily to a decrease in the Bank's short-term liquidity holdings ($2.6 billion), partially offset by increases in the Bank's advances ($1.5 billion) and the carrying value of its long-term investments ($0.7 billion).

Advances totaled $38.6 billion at June 30, 2020, compared with $46.9 billion at March 31, 2020 and $37.1 billion at December 31, 2019. The Bank's mortgage loans held for portfolio totaled $4.0 billion at June 30, 2020, as compared to $4.3 billion at March 31, 2020 and $4.1 billion at December 31, 2019.

The carrying value of the Bank's long-term held-to-maturity securities portfolio, which is comprised substantially of U.S. agency residential mortgage-backed securities (MBS), totaled approximately $1.1 billion at June 30, 2020 compared to $1.2 billion at both March 31, 2020 and December 31, 2019. The carrying value of the Bank's long-term available-for-sale securities portfolio, which is comprised substantially of U.S. agency debentures and U.S. agency commercial MBS, totaled $17.6 billion at June 30, 2020, as compared to $17.5 billion at March 31, 2020 and $16.8 billion at December 31, 2019. At June 30, 2020, March 31, 2020 and December 31, 2019, the Bank also held a $0.1 billion long-term U.S. Treasury Note classified as trading.

The Bank's short-term liquidity holdings are typically comprised of overnight interest-bearing deposits, overnight federal funds sold, overnight reverse repurchase agreements, U.S. Treasury Bills, U.S. Treasury Notes and, from time to time, may also include cash held at the Federal Reserve. At June 30, 2020, March 31, 2020 and December 31, 2019, the Bank's short-term liquidity holdings totaled $13.2 billion, $13.4 billion and $15.8 billion, respectively.

The Bank's retained earnings increased to $1.339 billion at June 30, 2020 from $1.267 billion at March 31, 2020 and $1.233 billion at December 31, 2019. On June 29, 2020, a dividend of $12.4 million was paid to the Bank's shareholders.

Further discussion and analysis regarding the Bank's results will be included in its Form 10-Q for the quarter ended June 30, 2020 to be filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission.
