CEO COMMENTARY
 
Harris H. Simmons, Chairman and CEO, commented, “Net earnings available to common shareholders was up only slightly from last year, reflecting relatively strong loan growth coupled with margin compression resulting from a challenging interest rate environment. Second quarter earnings per share of $0.99 increased 11% from the prior year period, largely the result of a share count that was 9% lower than last year.” Mr. Simmons continued, “Operating expenses continued to be well controlled, rising less than 1% from the prior year’s second quarter, and credit quality remained very clean with annualized net charge-offs totaling only 0.12% of average loans and leases, as economic conditions remain strong throughout the western United States.”

Net interest income increased $21 million, or 4%, to $569 million in the second quarter of 2019 from $548 million in the second quarter of 2018. Total interest income increased $78 million primarily due to a $67 million increase in interest and fees on loans, resulting from growth across all loan segments. Interest expense increased $57 million primarily due to increases in the rate paid on deposits and short and long-term borrowings, reflecting the increase in short-term interest rates, in addition to a $1.7 billion, or 32%, increase in average short and long-term borrowings.
The yield on interest earning assets was 4.24%, a decrease of 7 basis points compared with the first quarter of 2019, and an increase of 31 basis points compared with the second quarter of 2018. When adjusted for interest recoveries of $1 million in the second quarters of 2019 and 2018, respectively, using $1 million per loan as the reporting threshold, the yield on interest earning assets for each of those periods would be 1 basis point lower. During the first quarter of 2019 the Bank did not experience any interest income recoveries of at least $1 million per loan.
The rate paid on total deposits and interest-bearing liabilities increased to 0.75% for the second quarter of 2019, from 0.67% for the first quarter of 2019, and 0.40% for the second quarter of 2018. The total annualized cost of total deposits for the second quarter of 2019 was 0.49%, compared with 0.43% for the first quarter of 2019, and 0.22% for the second quarter of 2018.
The net interest margin decreased to 3.54% in the second quarter of 2019, compared with 3.68% in the first quarter of 2019, and 3.56% in the same prior year period primarily due to the increase in the cost of deposits and a decline in loan yields, both of which were due to changes in portfolio composition and competitive pricing pressure.

Total noninterest income for the second quarter of 2019 decreased by $6 million, or 4%, to $132 million from $138 million for the second quarter of 2018. Customer-related fees increased $5 million, which was largely attributable to an increase of $3 million in other service charges, commissions and fees as a result of increased lending activity, including syndication fees. Other noninterest income decreased by $5 million, primarily due to a $6 million valuation adjustment on client-related interest rate swaps in the second quarter of 2019. As a result of the decline in interest rates during the second quarter of 2019, these client-related interest rate swaps significantly increased in value, resulting in a larger exposure to the Bank and a $6 million valuation adjustment.

Noninterest expense for the second quarter of 2019 was $424 million, an increase of less than 1%, when compared with $421 million for the second quarter of 2018. Salaries and employee benefits increased $8 million, primarily due to a $7 million increase in base salaries resulting from annual salary merit increases and employee headcount and a $3 million decline in deferred salaries. The increase was partially offset by a $2 million decrease in incentive compensation. Furniture, equipment and software, net, increased by $3 million primarily due to increased

amortization of capitalized software related to our Core Transformation Project to replace our commercial loan systems.
The aforementioned increases in noninterest expense were offset by a $8 million decrease in FDIC premiums. The decrease in FDIC premiums is primarily due to the elimination of the FDIC surcharge for large banks because the required Deposit Insurance Fund reserve ratio has been met.
Our efficiency ratio was 59.0% in the second quarter of 2019, compared with 60.2% in the first quarter of 2019, and 60.9% in the second quarter of 2018. Adjusted noninterest expense for the second quarter of 2019 increased $3 million, or less than 1%, to $423 million, compared with $420 million for the same prior year period. For information on non-GAAP financial measures, including differences between noninterest expense and adjusted noninterest expense, see pages 16-19.
Income Taxes
Our effective income tax rate was 22.7% for the second quarter of 2019, compared with 22.3% for the first quarter of 2019 and 22.1% for the second quarter of 2018.

Asset quality improved when compared with the same prior year period. Nonperforming assets declined 27% from the second quarter of 2018, largely due to continued improvements in the oil and gas-related portfolio. The ratio of nonaccrual loans and accruing loans past due 90 days or more to loans and leases was 0.54%, compared with 0.77% in the second quarter of 2018, a reflection of a relatively benign credit environment and continued disciplined underwriting.
The Bank recorded a $21 million provision for credit losses during the second quarter of 2019, compared with $4 million during the first quarter of 2019, and $12 million for the second quarter of 2018. The increased provision for credit losses reflects loan growth, increased net charge-offs, and an increase in the qualitative portion related to

Loans and leases, net of unearned income and fees, increased $3.4 billion, or 7%, to $48.6 billion at June 30, 2019 from $45.2 billion at June 30, 2018. Within commercial loans, municipal and commercial and industrial loans increased $671 million and $749 million, respectively. Term commercial real estate loans increased $447 million. The growth in consumer loans was primarily due to a $579 million increase in 1-4 family residential loans. Unfunded lending commitments and letters of credit increased to $23.3 billion at June 30, 2019, compared with $21.2 billion at June 30, 2018.

During the second quarter of 2019, the Bank’s common stock dividend was $0.30 per share, compared with $0.24 per share in the second quarter of 2018. Common stock repurchases during the current quarter totaled $275 million, or 5.8 million shares, which is equivalent to 3.2% of common stock outstanding as of March 31, 2019. During the last four quarters, the Bank repurchased $985 million, or 20.0 million shares, of common stock which is equivalent to 10.2% of common stock outstanding as of June 30, 2018. As of June 30, 2019, the Bank had 29.3 million ZIONW warrants outstanding with a strike price of $34.41 per share that expire on May 22, 2020.
Common stock and additional paid-in capital decreased $960 million, or 23%, from the second quarter of 2018, primarily due to the previously mentioned share repurchases. Accumulated other comprehensive income improved $340 million from a negative $315 million as of June 30, 2018, to $25 million as of June 30, 2019. The improvement was primarily a result of fair value increases of the available-for-sale securities due to changes in interest rates.
Tangible book value per common share increased to $34.02 at June 30, 2019, compared with $30.91 at June 30, 2018 primarily due to a 9.4% decrease in common shares outstanding over the same period. Basel III common equity tier 1 (“CET1”) capital was $6.0 billion at June 30, 2019 and $6.4 billion at June 30, 2018. The estimated Basel III CET1 capital ratio was 10.8% at June 30, 2019 compared with 12.2% at June 30, 2018. For information on non-GAAP financial measures, see pages 16-19.
