Federal Home Loan Bank of Dallas Reports Fourth Quarter and Full Year 2019 Operating Results

DALLAS, TEXAS, February 20, 2020 - The Federal Home Loan Bank of Dallas (Bank) today reported net income of $61.7 million for the quarter ended December 31, 2019. In comparison, for the quarters ended September 30, 2019 and December 31, 2018, the Bank reported net income of $53.1 million and $58.1 million, respectively.

The $1.6 billion increase in total assets for the fourth quarter was attributable primarily to increases in the Bank's short-term liquidity portfolio ($2.7 billion) and mortgage loans held for portfolio ($0.5 billion), partially offset by decreases in the Bank's advances ($1.1 billion) and long-term investments ($0.4 billion). The $2.6 billion increase in total assets for the year ended December 31, 2019 was attributable primarily to increases in the Bank's short-term liquidity portfolio ($3.6 billion), mortgage loans held for portfolio ($1.9 billion) and long-term investments ($0.7 billion), partially offset by a decrease in the Bank's advances ($3.7 billion).

Advances totaled $37.1 billion at December 31, 2019, compared with $38.2 billion at September 30, 2019 and $40.8 billion at December 31, 2018.

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 $1.2 billion, $1.2 billion and $1.5 billion at December 31, 2019, September 30, 2019 and December 31, 2018, respectively. 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 $16.8 billion at December 31, 2019, as compared to $17.2 billion at September 30, 2019 and $15.8 billion at December 31, 2018. At December 31, 2019, September 30, 2019 and December 31, 2018, the Bank also held a $0.1 billion long-term U.S. Treasury Note classified as trading.

The Bank's short-term liquidity portfolio, which is comprised substantially of overnight interest-bearing deposits, overnight federal funds sold, overnight reverse repurchase agreements, U.S. Treasury Bills and U.S. Treasury Notes, totaled $15.8 billion at December 31, 2019, compared to $13.1 billion at September 30, 2019 and $12.2 billion at December 31, 2018.

The Bank's retained earnings increased to $1.233 billion at December 31, 2019 from $1.189 billion at September 30, 2019 and $1.081 billion at December 31, 2018. On December 30, 2019, a dividend of $18.3 million was paid to the Bank's shareholders.
