MOLINE, Ill., Jan. 24, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- QCR Holdings, Inc. (NASDAQ: QCRH) (the “Company”) today announced net income of $13.3 million and diluted earnings per share (“EPS”) of $0.84 for the fourth quarter of 2018, compared to net income of $8.8 million and diluted EPS of $0.55 for the third quarter of 2018. The fourth quarter results included $1.2 million of acquisition and post-acquisition compensation, transition and integration costs (after-tax), compared to $1.6 million of similar costs in the third quarter of 2018. Excluding these adjustments, the Company reported adjusted net income (non-GAAP) of $14.5 million and adjusted diluted EPS of $0.91 for the fourth quarter of 2018, compared to adjusted net income (non-GAAP) of $10.4 million and adjusted diluted EPS of $0.65 for the third quarter of 2018. For the fourth quarter of 2017, GAAP net income and adjusted net income (non-GAAP) were the same at $9.9 million and $0.70 per diluted share.

For the year ended December 31, 2018, the Company reported net income of $43.1 million, and diluted EPS of $2.86. Adjusting for acquisition and post-acquisition compensation, transition and integration costs, the Company reported adjusted net income (non-GAAP) of $46.4 million and adjusted diluted EPS of $3.08. By comparison, for the year ended December 31, 2017, the Company reported net income of $35.7 million and diluted EPS of $2.61, and adjusted net income (non-GAAP) of $36.3 million and adjusted diluted EPS of $2.66.

On October 1, 2018, the Company completed its previously announced acquisition of Bates Financial Advisors, Inc., Bates Financial Services, Inc., Bates Securities, Inc., and Bates Financial Group, Inc. (the “Bates Companies”). The Bates Companies are headquartered in Rockford, Illinois and added approximately $700 million in assets under management, as of September 30, 2018.

“We are pleased with our financial performance in 2018, delivering record net income, which translated into a 16% increase in adjusted earnings per share,” said Doug Hultquist, President and CEO of the Company. “Our strong financial results were driven by increases in both loans and deposits and significantly higher noninterest income. And while our net interest margin was adversely impacted by the flattening of the yield curve over the course of 2018, we were able to grow adjusted net interest income by 19% from 2017. We also were pleased to have completed our merger with Springfield Bancshares, an excellent strategic and cultural fit for our company, and the acquisition of the Bates Companies, a nice addition to our wealth management business.”

Mr. Hultquist continued, “We finished the year with strong momentum in the fourth quarter, delivering solid loan and lease production, successfully attracting new deposits and generating record fee income. We were also successful in reducing our nonperforming assets by 33%, as we monetized a number of positions during the quarter. Looking to 2019, we remain optimistic, as we continue to make the investments that we believe will lead to improved profitability and enhanced shareholder value in the years to come.”

Annualized Organic Loan and Lease Growth of 8.7% for the Quarter
and 9.8% for the Year

During the fourth quarter of 2018, the Company’s total assets increased $157.0 million, to a total of $4.9 billion, while total loans and leases grew $79.4 million, or a 2.2% increase, compared to the third quarter of 2018. Loan and lease growth was funded by an increase in core deposits. Core deposits (excluding brokered deposits) increased $187.0 million, or 5.3% on a linked quarter basis. At quarter-end, the percentage of wholesale funds to total assets was 13.8%, which is a solid decline from 15.9% from the third quarter.  Additionally, at quarter-end, the percentage of gross loans and leases to total assets was 75%, a slight decline from the third quarter, as a result of an increase in liquidity due to the strong growth in core deposits.  

“Our loan growth for the quarter was driven by strong loan production, with particular strength in commercial and industrial and owner occupied commercial real estate loans,” added Mr. Hultquist. “However, we continue to experience an elevated level of payoffs, driven by a combination of factors, including business clients experiencing healthy cash flows, clients selling their companies, or real estate developer clients selling their completed projects. Because of the trends that we are experiencing in paydowns, combined with a general sense of caution among a number of our clients, we are adjusting our goal for organic loan growth in 2019 to between 8% and 10%.”

Net Interest Income of $39.6 million

Net interest income for the fourth quarter of 2018 totaled $39.6 million, compared to $38.3 million for the third quarter of 2018 and $31.8 million for the fourth quarter of 2017. The increase in net interest income was due to an increase in average loan balances of $87.2 million, or a 2.4% increase, on a linked quarter basis. Acquisition-related net accretion totaled $2.6 million (pre-tax) for the fourth quarter of 2018, compared to $1.7 million in the third quarter of 2018 and $0.7 million for the fourth quarter of 2017. Adjusted net interest income (non-GAAP) was $38.7 million for the fourth quarter of 2018, compared to $38.2 million for the third quarter of 2018, or an increase of 1.4% on a linked quarter basis.

Net interest income totaled $142.4 million for the year ended December 31, 2018, compared to $116.1 million for the year ended December 31, 2017.

In the fourth quarter, reported net interest margin was 3.48%, and on a tax-equivalent yield basis, net interest margin was 3.63%. This represented an increase in net interest margin and tax-equivalent net interest margin from the third quarter of two basis points and three basis points, respectively. Net interest margin, excluding acquisition-related net accretion was 3.40% in the fourth quarter, for a decline of five basis points from the third quarter of 2018. This decline in adjusted net interest margin was due to increases in the Company’s cost of funds (due to both mix and rate) and excess liquidity due to the strong deposit growth in the quarter, and was partially offset by higher yields on the Company’s loans.

“Competition for new deposits remains strong, and as a result, our overall cost of funds, excluding acquisition amortization, increased by thirteen basis points during the quarter,” stated Todd A. Gipple, Executive Vice President, Chief Operating Officer and Chief Financial Officer. “Excluding the impact of acquisition-related accretion, our adjusted loan yields on a tax-equivalent basis increased by eleven basis points during the fourth quarter.”

Record Noninterest Income of $15.3 million
Led by Swap Fee Income of $7.1 million

Noninterest income for the fourth quarter of 2018 totaled $15.3 million, compared to $8.8 million for the third quarter of 2018. The significant increase was primarily due to $6.0 million in higher swap fee income and a $0.6 million increase in wealth management revenue primarily due to the acquisition of the Bates Companies. Wealth management revenue was $3.9 million for the quarter, a 19.0% increase from the third quarter of 2018. Noninterest income increased 57.3% when comparing the current quarter to the fourth quarter of 2017.

Noninterest income totaled $41.5 million for the year ended December 31, 2018, compared to $30.5 million for the year ended December 31, 2017.

“Noninterest income was up over 73% from the third quarter of 2018, driven primarily by significantly higher swap fee income, which is correlated to our strong production from our Specialty Finance Group in the area of tax credit lending where our clients are locking in long-term fixed rate financing,” added Mr. Gipple. “Additionally, we are pleased with our full year wealth management revenue growth of over 20%, despite a down market for equities, which reflects our success in attracting new assets under management. For 2018, swap fee income and gain on sale of loans combined for over $11 million, well in excess of our annual target of $4 million.”

Noninterest Expenses of $36.4 million

Noninterest expenses for the fourth quarter of 2018 totaled $36.4 million, compared to $30.5 million and $31.4 million for the third quarter of 2018 and fourth quarter of 2017, respectively. The linked quarter increase was due to a number of factors, including a $2.5 million increase in net costs of operations of other real estate.  The Company reduced the carrying value of an OREO property by $2.0 million and also sold an OREO property at a loss of $424 thousand.  There was also a $1.4 million increase in incentives and commissions, driven by the higher swap fee income. Salaries were $1.1 million higher than the third quarter of 2018 as a result of the Bates Companies acquisition and company-wide headcount additions in both business development and operational support.  Additionally, there was a $1.2 million increase in professional and data processing fees.

Asset Quality Improvement

Nonperforming assets (“NPAs”) totaled $27.9 million, a decrease of $13.6 million from the third quarter of 2018, primarily due to a combination of factors, including $4.9 million in net charge-offs on loans, a $3.5 million paydown on a large nonaccrual loan, a $1.3 million reduction in OREO from a sale (including a $0.4 million loss on sale), and a $2.0 million write-down of an OREO property that the Company is actively marketing for sale. The lower NPAs resulted in the ratio of NPAs to total assets improving to 0.56% at December 31, 2018, down from 0.87% at September 30, 2018 and down from 0.81% at December 31, 2017.

The Company’s provision for loan and lease losses totaled $1.6 million for the fourth quarter of 2018, which was down $4.6 million from the prior quarter and down $0.6 million compared to the fourth quarter of 2017. The linked quarter decrease in the provision for loan and lease losses was primarily due to a more favorable outcome than expected on a large credit that was partially charged off. As of December 31, 2018, the Company’s allowance to total loans and leases was 1.07%, which was down from 1.18% at September 30, 2018 and down from 1.16% at December 31, 2017.

In accordance with generally accepted accounting principles for acquisition accounting, the loans acquired through past acquisitions were recorded at market value; therefore, there was no allowance associated with the acquired loans at the acquisition date. Management continues to evaluate the allowance needed on the acquired loans factoring in the net remaining discount ($11.6 million at December 31, 2018).

Capital Levels

As of December 31, 2018, the Company’s total risk-based capital ratio was 10.72%, the common equity Tier 1 ratio was 8.89%, and the tangible common equity to tangible assets ratio was 7.78%. By comparison, these respective ratios were 10.87%, 8.92% and 7.82% as of September 30, 2018. The decline in capital ratios from September 30, 2018 to December 31, 2018 was the result of the Bates Companies transaction, including the related purchase accounting adjustments, as well as balance sheet growth during the quarter.

Continued Focus on Seven Key Initiatives

The Company continues to focus on the following long-term initiatives in an effort to improve profitability and drive increased shareholder value:

  • Strong organic loan and lease growth in order to maintain loans and leases to total assets ratio in the range of 73% - 78%
  • Grow core deposits to maintain reliance on wholesale funding at less than 15% of assets
  • Generate gains on sale of government guaranteed loans, and fee income on interest rate swaps, as a significant and consistent component of core revenue
  • Grow wealth management net income by 10% annually
  • Carefully manage noninterest expense growth
  • Maintain asset quality metrics at better than peer levels
  • Participate as an acquirer in the consolidation taking place in our industry to further boost return on average assets, improve efficiency ratio, and increase EPS
