"PNC expanded its businesses significantly in 2012," said James E. Rohr, chairman and chief executive officer. "Our balance sheet strength along with our committed employees allowed us to grow customers, loans and deposits across our franchise and expand into Southeastern markets. While we are pleased with the progress we have made, our financial results do not yet reflect the full potential from our investments. Our commitment to revenue growth, expense reduction and efficient capital management in 2013 should position PNC to deliver even greater shareholder value."
