    ACHIEVES POSITIVE OPERATING LEVERAGE(2)

    Boston, MA ...January 18, 2013

    In announcing today's financial results, Joseph L. Hooley, State Street's chairman, president and chief executive officer, said, "The fourth-quarter and full-year 2012 results reflect continued resilience across our asset servicing and asset management businesses. We achieved these results in a constrained revenue environment, generating positive operating leverage and continuing to invest in key markets that position us for further growth.

    "While equity markets improved in the fourth quarter, our clients remained cautious for most of the quarter given the uncertainty surrounding the global economic environment and the U.S. fiscal cliff. We experienced strong demand for our solutions as evidenced by $649 billion in asset servicing wins and a continued strong pipeline.

    "We remain focused on executing our Business Operations and Information Technology Transformation program. Additionally, to capture further efficiencies and cost savings, today we announced a separate reduction in force to align our expenses with our business outlook for 2013.

    "We purchased approximately 11 million shares this quarter for $480 million under our $1.8 billion common stock purchase plan and declared a $0.24 per share common stock dividend. Earlier this month, we submitted our 2013 capital plan to the Federal Reserve Bank. We continue to prioritize the return of capital to our shareholders.

    "As we look ahead, we are encouraged by the recent market strength and early signs of client re-risking. We remain confident in the long-term growth prospects of our business and are focused on servicing clients, growing revenues organically, managing expenses prudently, and returning capital to shareholders," Hooley concluded.
