This earnings release contains forward-looking statements. Readers are cautioned not to place undue reliance on forward-looking statements, which speak only as of the date on which they are made and which reflect management's current estimates, projections, expectations or beliefs and which are subject to risks and uncertainties that may cause actual results to differ materially. For a discussion of additional risks and uncertainties that may affect the future results of the Company, please see “Forward-Looking Statements” immediately preceding Part I, Item 1, “Competition” and “Supervision and Regulation” in Part I, Item 1, “Risk Factors” in Part I, Item 1A, “Legal Proceedings” in Part I, Item 3, “Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations” in Part II, Item 7 and “Quantitative and Qualitative Disclosures about Market Risk” in Part II, Item 7A in the Company's Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2013 and other items throughout the Form 10-K and the Company’s Current Reports on Form 8-K, including any amendments thereto.

1 Represents the change in the fair value of certain of Morgan Stanley’s long-term and short-term borrowings resulting from fluctuations in its credit spreads and other credit factors (commonly referred to as “DVA”).

2 From time to time, Morgan Stanley may disclose certain “non-GAAP financial measures” in the course of its earnings releases, earnings conference calls, financial presentations and otherwise. For these purposes, “GAAP” refers to generally accepted accounting principles in the United States. The Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) defines a “non-GAAP financial measure” as a numerical measure of historical or future financial performance, financial positions, or cash flows that is subject to adjustments that effectively exclude, or include amounts from the most directly comparable measure calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP. Non-GAAP financial measures disclosed by Morgan Stanley are provided as additional information to investors in order to provide them with greater transparency about, or an alternative method for assessing, our financial condition and operating results. These measures are not in accordance with, or a substitute for GAAP, and may be different from or inconsistent with non-GAAP financial measures used by other companies. Whenever we refer to a non-GAAP financial measure, we will also generally present the most directly comparable financial measure calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP, along with a reconciliation of the differences between the non-GAAP financial measure we reference and such comparable GAAP financial measure.

3 Earnings (loss) per diluted share amounts, excluding DVA, are non-GAAP financial measures that the Firm considers useful for investors to allow better comparability of period-to-period operating performance. Such exclusions are provided to differentiate revenues associated with Morgan Stanley borrowings, regardless of whether the impact is either positive, or negative, that result solely from fluctuations in credit spreads and other credit factors. The reconciliation of earnings (loss) per diluted share from continuing operations applicable to Morgan Stanley common shareholders and average diluted shares from a non-GAAP to GAAP basis is as follows (shares and DVA are presented in millions):

12 VaR represents the loss amount that one would not expect to exceed, on average, more than five times every one hundred trading days in the Firm’s trading positions if the portfolio were held constant for a one-day period. Further discussion of the calculation of VaR and the limitations of the Firm’s VaR methodology is disclosed in Part II, Item 7A “Quantitative and Qualitative Disclosures about Market Risk” included in Morgan Stanley’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2013. Refer to page 7 of Morgan Stanley’s Financial Supplement accompanying this release for the VaR disclosure.

13 Transactional revenues include investment banking, trading, and commissions and fee revenues.

14 On June 28, 2013, the Firm completed the purchase of the remaining 35% interest in the Morgan Stanley Smith Barney Joint Venture from Citi, increasing the Firm’s interest from 65% to 100%. In the quarter ended March 31, 2013, Citi’s results related to its 35% interest were reported in net income (loss) applicable to nonredeemable noncontrolling interests on page 8 of Morgan Stanley’s Financial Supplement accompanying this release.

15 Results for the first quarter of 2014 and 2013 included pre-tax income of $54 million and $50 million, respectively, related to investments held by certain consolidated real estate funds. The limited partnership interests in these funds are reported in net income (loss) applicable to noncontrolling interests on page 10 of Morgan Stanley’s Financial Supplement accompanying this release.

16 Net revenues for the current quarter included gains of $54 million compared with gains of $52 million in the prior year first quarter related to investments held by certain consolidated real estate funds.

17 Beginning with the first quarter of 2014, the Firm calculates its Common Equity Tier 1 capital and Tier 1 capital (and the numerator of the related Common Equity Tier 1 and Tier 1 risk-based capital ratios) using the U.S. Basel III final rule’s definition of capital and regulatory deductions and adjustments, subject to transitional provisions. In the first quarter of 2014, the Firm calculated the denominator of its risk-based capital ratios using credit risk-weighted assets (RWAs) determined under the Basel I-based rules and market RWAs determined under the existing market risk rules known as “Basel 2.5.” The Firm’s capital takes into consideration regulatory capital requirements as well as capital required for organic growth, acquisitions and other business needs. These computations are preliminary estimates as of April 17, 2014 (the date of this release) and could be subject to revision in Morgan Stanley’s Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended March 31, 2014. The methods for calculating the Firm’s risk-based capital ratios will change through 2022 as aspects of the U.S. Basel III final rule are phased in and as the Firm begins calculating RWAs using the U.S. Basel III advanced approaches in the second quarter of 2014, subject to a capital floor consisting of the Basel I-based and Basel 2.5 rules through December 31, 2014 and the U.S. Basel III standardized approach from January 1, 2015.

18 Tangible common equity and tangible book value per common share are non-GAAP financial measures that the Firm considers to be useful measures of capital adequacy. Tangible common equity equals common equity less goodwill and intangible assets net of allowable mortgage servicing rights deduction. Tangible book value per common share equals tangible common equity divided by period end common shares outstanding.

Notes:   -   Beginning with the first quarter of 2014, the Firm calculates its Common Equity Tier 1 capital and Tier 1 capital (and the numerator of the related Common Equity Tier 1 and Tier 1 risk-based capital ratios) using the U.S. Basel III final rule’s definition of capital and regulatory deductions and adjustments, subject to transitional provisions. For information on the calculation of regulatory capital and ratios for prior periods, please refer to Part 2, Item 7 "Regulatory Requirements" in Morgan Stanley's Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2013. Prior periods have not been recast to reflect the new requirements.

- The return on average common equity metrics, return on average common equity excluding DVA metrics, and tangible book value per common share are non-GAAP measures that the Firm considers to be useful measures to assess operating performance and capital adequacy.
-

Common Equity Tier 1 capital ratio (transitional) and the Tier 1 capital ratio (transitional) equals Common Equity Tier 1 capital divided by risk-weighted assets (RWAs) and Tier 1 capital divided by RWAs, respectively.

- Book value per common share equals common equity divided by period end common shares outstanding.
- Tangible book value per common share equals tangible common equity divided by period end common shares outstanding.
