NEWS RELEASE

Northrim BanCorp Earnings Increase 43% to $7.5 Million, or $1.11 per Diluted Share, in 3Q19 from 3Q18
Reflecting Strong Loan and Deposit Growth and Improved Credit Quality

ANCHORAGE, Alaska - October 28, 2019 - Northrim BanCorp, Inc. (NASDAQ:NRIM) (“Northrim” or the "Company") today reported net income increased 43% to $7.5 million, or $1.11 per diluted share, in the third quarter of 2019, compared to $5.3 million, or $0.75 per diluted share, in the third quarter of 2018. In the second quarter of 2019, Northrim earned $4.3 million, or $0.62 per diluted share. A benefit for loan losses of $2.1 million, higher production in the mortgage banking division, as well as strong loan and deposit growth in the community banking franchise drove third quarter profitability.

Net income for the first nine months of 2019 increased 6% to $16.1 million, or $2.35 per diluted share, compared to $15.2 million, or $2.17 per diluted share, in the first nine months of 2018. In the first nine months of 2019, operating results include increased operating expenses of $56.2 million, up from $51.5 million in the first nine months of 2018 primarily due to increased salaries and employee benefit costs, higher occupancy expenses and rising costs for data processing and bank technology. Higher overhead costs reflect Northrim’s successful execution of its growth plans, including the addition of two new branch locations in the last year, and its ability to retain and recruit experienced, talented bankers in the Alaska markets it serves.

“The flat yield curve is creating a strong demand for home purchase and refinance mortgages. Despite a highly competitive market, our loan growth has been substantial, and our loan pipeline, for both home mortgages and business loans, remains strong,” said Joe Schierhorn, President and CEO.

Third Quarter 2019 Highlights:

Total revenue, which includes net interest income plus other operating income, increased 5% to $26.8 million in the third quarter of 2019, compared to $25.5 million in the second quarter of 2019 and increased 9% compared to $24.5 million in the third quarter a year ago.
Community Banking provided 71% of total revenues and 84% of earnings in the third quarter of 2019.
Home Mortgage Lending provided 29% of total revenues and 16% of third quarter earnings.
Net interest income in the third quarter of 2019 increased to $16.3 million from $15.8 million in the third quarter a year ago.
Net interest margin on a tax equivalent basis (“NIMTE”)* was 4.65% in the third quarter, a 9 basis point contraction compared to the third quarter a year ago, and a 12 basis point contraction compared to the preceding quarter.
Return on average assets was 1.90% and return on average equity was 14.45% for the third quarter of 2019.
The third quarter 2019 benefit for loan losses was $2.1 million compared to the year ago quarter when Northrim did not record a provision for loan losses, due to improved credit quality and improved overall economic factors.
The Company completed its share repurchase program, buying 192,193 shares of its common stock in the third quarter of 2019 at an average price of $37.29.

Alaska Economic Update
(Note: sources for information included in this section are included on page 10.)

The Alaska economy went through three consecutive years of a mild recession. Macro-economic indicators began to show a positive change in the fourth quarter of 2018, with improvements continuing into 2019. The State Department of Labor reported growth of 400 jobs in August of 2019 compared to August of 2018. October of 2018 was the first month of year-over-year increase in employment since September of 2015. After 37 months of year-over-year declines, Alaska now has eleven consecutive months of year-over-year job increases. The Department of Labor forecasted an increase of 1,400 jobs, or 0.4% growth for the entire year. They expect the major drivers of job growth to be military, oil & gas activity and tourism.
Alaska’s seasonally adjusted gross state product (GSP) was $54.6 billion in the first quarter of 2019, according to the U.S. Bureau of Economic Analysis (BEA) in a report released on July 25, 2019. Alaska’s GSP increased 3.9% annualized in the first quarter of 2019, marking the fourth consecutive quarter of improvement in Alaska’s GSP. Alaska’s real GSP declined by 5.7% annualized in the first quarter of 2018, but then grew in the second, third and fourth quarters last year. The net result was a slight decline of GSP for 2018 of -0.3%. Alaska’s GSP declined -1.8% in 2016 and -0.2 % in 2017.
Alaska’s personal income grew 4.3% annualized in the first quarter of 2019 and 5.6% in the second quarter according to a report released on September 24, 2019 by the BEA. Total personal income from all sources in Alaska grew to $45.5 billion. The largest increase in dollar terms in the second quarter of 2019 came from a $330 million or 4.6% growth in wages and proprietors income. Dividends, interest and rental income grew by $100 million and income from government transfer payments increased by $185 million in the second quarter.
“The most recent macro-economic indicators show Alaska’s economy has begun to grow again and add jobs. In the near term, there is concern over the effect of State government budget cuts. However, there is renewed optimism in the private sector that a number of large-scale natural resource development projects are advancing and new discoveries

of oil and gas are increasing investment activity for exploration and development," stated Mark Edwards, EVP Chief Credit Officer and Bank Economist.
Alaska North Slope (ANS) average monthly oil prices have been between $60 and $72 in 2019. The September monthly average for ANS was $63.83. The State Department of Revenue has forecasted an annual average ANS oil price of $68.90 per barrel in fiscal year (FY) 2019 and $66 per barrel in FY 2020.
Alaska’s crude oil production averaged 540,500 barrels per day (bpd) in FY 2017. This was an increase of 9,300 bpd over the previous year and the second year of production growth. This two-year positive trend reversed slightly last year when total output declined 1.2% to 534,000 bpd in FY 2018. The State Department of Revenue forecasts production on the North Slope to decline in FY 2019 by 1.3% and then rise by 3.5% in 2020.
“The impact of the pending sale of BP’s Alaska operations to Hilcorp, announced in August, provides both opportunities and challenges for oil services firms and the businesses that serve this leading industrial sector,” added Schierhorn. “BP currently employs approximately 1,600 workers or one-sixth of total employment in Alaska’s oil and gas industry. Hilcorp has told BP’s workers that they will receive more information on future employment levels in December.”

Alaska’s home mortgage delinquency and foreclosure levels continue to be better than most of the nation. Alaskans showed resiliency and kept their home payments current despite the local recession. According to the Mortgage Bankers Association, Alaska’s foreclosure rate was 0.68% at the end of the second quarter 2019. This compares to 0.63% at the end of the first quarter 2019. The comparable national average rate was 0.90% at the end of the second quarter 2019. The national rate continues to improve while the Alaska rate remains relatively lower and stable.
The national survey reported that the percentage of delinquent mortgage loans in Alaska was 3.21% for the second quarter of 2019. The Alaska delinquency rate at the end of 2018 was 2.92%, compared to 3.37% for the same period in 2017. The 2018 average delinquency rate across the country was 1.4% higher than Alaska at 4.32%. The U.S. rate moved slightly higher to 4.41% at the end of the second quarter 2019.

Review of Income Statement

Consolidated Income Statement
In the third quarter of 2019, Northrim generated a return on average assets ("ROAA") of 1.90% and a return on average equity ("ROAE") of 14.45%, compared to 1.12% and 8.13%, respectively in the second quarter of 2019 and 1.40% and 10.27%, respectively, in the third quarter a year ago. These results were above the average posted by the SNL Small Cap U.S. Bank Index with total market capitalization between $250 million and $1 billion as of June 30, 20191.

Net Interest Income/Net Interest Margin
Net interest income grew 3% to $16.3 million in the third quarter of 2019 compared to $15.8 million in the third quarter of 2018 and increased modestly compared to $16.0 million in the second quarter of 2019. For the first nine months of 2019, net interest income increased 7% to $48.0 million from $45.1 million in the first nine months of 2018. Interest income benefited by the growth in the loan portfolio which more than offset increased cost of interest-bearing deposits and borrowings in both the third quarter and first nine months of 2019 compared to the year ago periods.

1As of June 30, 2019, the SNL Small Cap US Bank Index tracked 123 banks with total common market capitalization between $250 million and $1 billion with averages for the following ratios: NIMTE* 3.46%, ROAA 1.13%, and ROAE 10.41%.

NIMTE* was 4.65% in the third quarter of 2019 compared to 4.77% in the preceding quarter and 4.74% in the third quarter a year ago. The yield on interest earning assets in the third quarter of 2019 was 5.08%, down 9 basis points from the second quarter of 2019 and up 11 basis points year-over-year. The cost of funds increased in the third quarter of 2019 to 68 basis points, up 5 basis points from the preceding quarter and up 32 basis points compared to the third quarter a year ago.
“Our cost of funds increased during the quarter due to CD deposit campaigns that continued through the end of the summer, however, with the recent rate drops we should see costs of funds level off or drop in the fourth quarter,” said Jed Ballard, Chief Financial Officer. “Even with the recent rate decrease by the Fed in the third quarter, our loans reprice at higher rates than when they originated two to three years ago.”

Provision for Loan Losses
Northrim recorded a benefit for loan losses of $2.1 million in the third quarter of 2019. In the second quarter of 2019, Northrim recorded a $300,000 provision for loan losses, and in the third quarter of 2018, Northrim recorded no provision for loan losses. “We recorded a benefit for loan losses in the third quarter due to a combination of improved credit quality, including net loan recoveries of $694,000, as well as improved overall economic factors,” said Ballard.
Nonperforming loans, net of government guarantees, improved during the quarter to $15.5 million at September 30, 2019, compared to $16.9 million at June 30, 2019, and $16.6 million at September 30, 2018. The allowance for loan losses was 123% of nonperforming loans, net of government guarantees at September 30, 2019.

Other Operating Income

In addition to home mortgage lending, Northrim has interests in other businesses that complement its core community banking activities, including purchased receivables financing and wealth management. Other operating income contributed $10.5 million, or 39% of total third quarter 2019 revenues, as compared to $9.6 million, or 37% of revenues in the second quarter of 2019, and $8.7 million, or 35% of revenues in the third quarter of 2018. In the first nine months
of 2019, other operating income totaled $27.6 million, or 37% of revenues, compared to $24.4 million, or 35% of revenues in the first nine months of 2018. The primary drivers of changes in other operating income are variability in the mortgage market, which is seasonal and cyclical, and gains or losses from the fair value changes of marketable equity securities. The fair value mark-to-market of the marketable equity securities portfolio increased other income by $130,000 in the third quarter of 2019, compared to a $118,000 increase in the second quarter of 2019 and increased other income by $782,000 in the first nine months of 2019, compared to a decrease of $136,000 in the first nine months of 2018. Additionally, $734,000 in interest rate swap income was earned in the second quarter of 2019 on the execution of interest rate swaps related to the Company's commercial lending operations.

Other Operating Expenses

Operating expenses were $19.3 million in the third quarter of 2019, compared to $19.8 million in the second quarter of 2019 and $18.1 million in the third quarter of 2018. Impacting operating expenses include costs associated with the two new branch locations in Soldotna opened in the fourth quarter of 2018 and East Anchorage opened in the second quarter of 2019, higher compensation costs for the mortgage banking operations due to increased loan originations and increased data processing and banking technology costs. In the first nine months of 2019, operating expenses were $56.2 million, up from $51.5 million in the first nine months of 2018, reflecting higher overhead expenses, as explained above. “We added several talented bankers in lending and cash management over the past year, to execute our business plan to grow the company and expand market share. In addition, we continue to invest in technology, which increased data processing costs, to introduce new products and services to our customers,” said Schierhorn.

Income Tax Provision

For the third quarter of 2019, Northrim recorded $2.0 million in state and federal income tax expense for an effective tax rate of 21.2% compared to $1.1 million, or 17.7% in the third quarter a year ago. For the first nine months of 2019, Northrim recorded $4.3 million in state and federal income tax expense, for an effective tax rate of 21.2% compared to $3.2 million and 17.3% for the same period in 2018. The tax rate increased in both periods in 2019 due to less tax-exempt income and fewer estimated tax credits as a percentage of pre-tax income in 2019 as compared to 2018.


Community Banking

“Our Alaska franchise is growing, and our recent branch expansions, combined with the addition of new and existing relationships, will continue to provide long-term opportunities in our market,” said Schierhorn.

Net interest income in the Community Banking segment increased 4% to $16.0 million in the third quarter of 2019 from $15.4 million in the third quarter of 2018.

Home Mortgage Lending

“Demand for mortgage loans picked up substantially in the current quarter, in large part due to an increase in refinancing as a result of lower mortgage rates, in addition to the normal seasonality in the mortgage market,” said Ballard. Third quarter of 2019 volume increased to $241.8 million, of which 67% were for new home purchases, compared to $169.0 million and 82% of loans funded in the second quarter of 2019 and $156.3 million of which 91% were for new home purchases in the third quarter of 2018.

“Our mortgage servicing business, which was initiated in the fourth quarter of 2015 to service loans for the Alaska Housing Finance Corporation, experienced substantial growth during the quarter,” Ballard added. As of September 30, 2019, Northrim serviced 2,534 loans in its $634.1 million home-mortgage-servicing portfolio, which is a 23% increase from the $516.0 million serviced a year ago. Mortgage servicing revenue contributed $1.6 million to revenues in the third quarter of 2019 compared to $1.1 million in the second quarter of 2019 and $1.6 million in the third quarter of 2018. Total mortgage servicing income fluctuates based on the amount of mortgage servicing rights originated during the period and changes in the fair value of mortgage servicing rights, which are driven by interest rate volatility and fluctuations in estimated prepayment speeds based on published industry metrics. The change in the fair value of mortgage servicing rights was a decrease of $662,000 for the third quarter of 2019 compared to a decrease of $950,000 for the second quarter of 2019 and a decrease of $128,000 for the third quarter of 2018. In the first nine months of 2019 the change in fair value of mortgage servicing rights was a decrease of $2.3 million as compared to a decrease of $272,000 for the first nine months of 2018.

Balance Sheet Review

Northrim’s total assets increased to $1.62 billion at September 30, 2019, up 4% from the preceding quarter and up 8% from a year ago. Northrim’s loan-to-deposit ratio was 77% at September 30, 2019, down from 79% at June 30, 2019 and 80% at September 30, 2018.

Average interest-earning assets were $1.40 billion in the third quarter of 2019, up 4% from $1.36 billion in the second quarter of 2019 and up 5% from $1.34 billion in the third quarter a year ago. The average yield on interest-earning assets was 5.08% in the third quarter of 2019, down from 5.17% in the preceding quarter and up from 4.97% in the third quarter a year ago.

Average investment securities decreased 10% to $253.4 million in the third quarter of 2019, compared to $281.5 million in the second quarter of 2019 and decreased 4% from $264.4 million in the third quarter a year ago. The average net tax equivalent yield on the securities portfolio improved to 2.73% for the third quarter of 2019, from 2.71% in the preceding quarter and 2.29% a year ago*. The average estimated duration of the investment portfolio was 19 months, at September 30, 2019.

Loan originations more than offset the rate of repayments that results from the short duration of the loan portfolio. At September 30, 2019, commercial loans increased to 39% of total loans, while commercial real estate remained at 48% of total loans and construction loans decreased slightly to 9% of total loans, compared to three months earlier. Portfolio loans were $1.04 billion at September 30, 2019, up 2% from the preceding quarter and up 6% from a year ago. Average portfolio loans in the third quarter of 2019 were $1.02 billion, up 2% from the preceding quarter and up 4% from a

year ago. Yields on average portfolio loans in the third quarter of 2019 declined to 5.92% from 5.96% in the second quarter of 2019 and improved compared to 5.81% in the third quarter of 2018.

“We are executing our deposit strategy on a number of different fronts, most notably with new synergies between commercial cash managers and lenders targeting new deposits. In addition, we have enhanced several deposit products and services for our customers, which improves our competitive position in our markets,” said Schierhorn.

Alaskans account for substantially all of Northrim’s deposit base, which is primarily made up of low-cost transaction accounts. Balances in transaction accounts at September 30, 2019, represented 88% of total deposits. At September 30, 2019, total deposits were $1.35 billion, up 5% from $1.29 billion at June 30, 2019, and up 10% from $1.23 billion a year ago. Average interest-bearing deposits were up 6% to $870.4 million with an average cost of 0.62% in the third quarter of 2019, compared to $818.1 million and an average cost of 0.58% in the second quarter of 2019, and up 9% compared to $795.3 million and an average cost of 0.30% in the third quarter of 2018.

Shareholders’ equity was $204.0 million, or $31.20 per share, at September 30, 2019, compared to $206.3 million, or $30.66 per share, at June 30, 2019 and $203.2 million, or $29.52 per share, a year ago. Tangible book value per share* was $28.74 at September 30, 2019, up from $27.17 per share a year ago. Northrim continues to maintain capital levels in excess of the requirements to be categorized as “well-capitalized” under the Basel III and Dodd Frank regulatory standards with Tier 1 Capital to Risk Adjusted Assets of 14.57% at September 30, 2019. Share repurchases accounted for the modest decline in shareholders' equity in both the third and second quarters of 2019, compared to a year ago.

Asset Quality

“The overall improvement in the quality of the loan portfolio during the quarter reflects the hard work of our lending and credit administration teams,” said Ballard. “Net loan recoveries totaled $694,000 for the quarter, and all credit quality metrics improved compared to three months earlier.”

Nonperforming assets ("NPAs") net of government guarantees improved to $21.5 million at September 30, 2019, compared to $23.9 million at June 30, 2019, and $24.1 million at September 30, 2018. Of the NPAs, $13.0 million, or 61% are nonaccrual loans related to six commercial relationships. Two of these relationships, which totaled $6.0 million at the end of the third quarter of 2019, are businesses in the medical industry.

Net adversely classified loans improved to $24.2 million at the end of the third quarter of 2019 as compared to $25.0 million at the end of the second quarter of 2019, and $29.7 million one year ago. Loan recoveries were greater than loan charge-offs in the third quarter by $694,000, compared to $9,000 in net loan recoveries in the second quarter of 2019 and $52,000 in net loan recoveries in the year ago quarter. Year to date, net loan recoveries were $643,000, compared to net loan charge-offs of $1.0 million in the first nine months of 2018. Adversely classified loans are loans that Northrim has classified as substandard, doubtful, and loss, net of government guarantees. As of September 30, 2019, $18.3 million, or 76% of net adversely classified loans are attributable to eight relationships with four loans to commercial businesses, two loans to medical businesses, and two loans to oilfield services commercial businesses.

Performing restructured loans that were not included in nonaccrual loans at the end of the third quarter of 2019 were $1.5 million, down from $1.6 million in the preceding quarter and from $3.3 million a year ago. The decrease in the third quarter of 2019 compared to the year ago quarter is primarily due to the repayment of one relationship. Borrowers who are in financial difficulty and who have been granted concessions that may include interest rate reductions, term extensions, or payment alterations are categorized as restructured loans. The Company presents restructured loans that are performing separately from those that are classified as nonaccrual to provide more information on this category of loans and to differentiate between accruing performing and nonperforming restructured loans.

Northrim estimates that $66.3 million, or approximately 6% of portfolio loans as of September 30, 2019, had direct exposure to the oil and gas industry in Alaska, and $2.7 million of these loans are adversely classified. As of September 30, 2019, Northrim has an additional $29.1 million in unfunded commitments to companies with direct exposure to the oil and gas industry in Alaska, and none of these unfunded commitments are considered to be adversely classified

loans. Northrim defines direct exposure to the oil and gas sector as loans to borrowers that provide oilfield services and other companies that have identified as significantly reliant upon activity in Alaska related to the oil and gas industry, such as lodging, equipment rental, transportation and other logistics services specific to this industry.
