DENVER, April 21, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- National Bank Holdings Corporation (NYSE: NBHC) reported:

         
 For the quarter
 1Q20 4Q19 1Q19
Net income ($000's)$ 15,824  $ 19,519  $ 18,922 
Earnings per share - diluted$ 0.50  $ 0.62  $ 0.60

Return on average tangible common equity(1) 9.79%  12.07%  13.15%
  
(1) Quarterly ratios are annualized. 
  

In announcing these results, Chief Executive Officer Tim Laney shared, “I want to thank my teammates for moving quickly to address the challenges presented by the COVID-19 pandemic. Our priorities are to 1) protect the health of our associates and clients, 2) ensure the safety and soundness of our bank, and 3) act on every opportunity to prudently support our clients and the communities where we do business. To support our clients and communities, our teams have worked tirelessly to facilitate the SBA’s Paycheck Protection Program, obtaining SBA approval for $333 million in PPP loans. We estimate our efforts have helped save over 32,000 jobs to date. We entered this crisis with strong capital and liquidity positions, and we have moved quickly to assess emerging risks and to successfully deploy our contingency plans.” 

Mr. Laney added, “We delivered 50 cents of earnings per share during the first quarter. Tangible Book Value grew to $21.27 per share as quarterly earnings exceeded the impact of the CECL adoption, our dividend and share buyback activity during the quarter. We maintained excellent credit quality with annualized net charge offs of just 0.03% and low levels of non-performing loans at 0.47% of total loans. We continue to hold high levels of excess liquidity and ended the quarter with a strong 11.1% Tier 1 Leverage ratio and 12.9% Common Equity Tier 1 capital ratio.” 

First Quarter 2020 Results
(All comparisons refer to the fourth quarter of 2019, except as noted)

Net income totaled $15.8 million during the first quarter of 2020, or $0.50 per diluted share, compared to $19.5 million during the last quarter, or $0.62 per diluted share. The decrease from the prior quarter is primarily due to a $6.2 million loan loss provision from the Current Expected Credit Loss (“CECL”) model recorded during the first quarter driven by deteriorating economic conditions caused by the impact of COVID-19, partially offset by increased residential banking income. The return on average tangible assets was 1.12% compared to 1.35% and the return on average tangible common equity was 9.79% compared to 12.07% last quarter.

Net Interest Income
Fully taxable equivalent net interest income totaled $51.6 million, decreasing $0.1 million from the prior quarter, and benefited from $1.2 million of accelerated accretion on acquired loans. Average earnings assets decreased $79.6 million largely due to lower loans held-for-sale balances. Fully taxable equivalent net interest margin widened 10 basis points from the prior quarter to 3.87%, driven by a six basis point increase in the yield on earning assets coupled with a seven basis point decrease in the cost of funds.

Loans
Total loans ended the quarter at $4.5 billion, increasing $90.3 million, or 8.2% annualized, led by commercial loan growth of $81.8 million, or 11.0% annualized. Total first quarter loan originations were $292.9 million, led by commercial loan originations of $163.6 million. We maintain a granular and well diversified loan portfolio with self-imposed concentration limits. In light of the strain placed on industries related to the COVID-19 pandemic, we have carefully evaluated our entire loan portfolio and have highlighted our current higher impacted industries within the accompanying COVID-19 Related Supplemental Disclosure.

Asset Quality and Provision for Loan Losses
Provision for loan losses of $6.2 million was recorded during the quarter under the CECL model, net of a $0.2 million reduction in unfunded loan commitment reserves. The quarter’s provision expense increased $5.0 million from the prior quarter to support originated loan growth, net charge-offs and provides coverage for the impact of deterioration in the macro-economic environment as a result of COVID-19. Annualized net charge-offs on loans totaled 0.03%, decreasing four basis points from the prior quarter. Non-performing loans (comprised of non-accrual loans and non-accrual TDRs) improved to 0.47% of total loans, compared to 0.49% at December 31, 2019. The allowance for credit losses as a percentage of total loans increased 25 basis points to 1.13% at March 31, 2020 and included a CECL adoption day 1 increase of $5.8 million.

Deposits
Average transaction deposits (defined as total deposits less time deposits) increased $27.0 million, or 3.0% annualized, and average total deposits increased $21.2 million, or 1.8% annualized, to $4.7 billion at March 31, 2020. Average non-interest bearing demand deposits decreased $40.7 million and average interest-bearing demand, savings and money market deposits increased $67.7 million. The mix of transaction deposits to total deposits was 77.8% at March 31, 2020.

The cost of transaction deposits decreased two basis points from the prior quarter to 0.32%. The cost of total deposits decreased one basis point from the prior quarter to 0.63%, and the cost of funds decreased seven basis points to 0.88% at March 31, 2020.

Non-Interest Income
Non-interest income totaled $23.5 million during the first quarter, representing an increase of $3.2 million from the prior quarter, primarily due to higher mortgage banking income of $3.4 million. Service charges and bank card fees decreased a combined $0.4 million and OREO-related income decreased $0.1 million. Other non-interest income increased $0.5 million from the prior quarter, primarily due to increased swap-fee income.

Non-Interest Expense
Non-interest expense totaled $48.7 million during the first quarter, representing an increase of $2.6 million from the prior quarter almost entirely due to higher mortgage banking commissions. Other non-interest expense increased $0.2 million due to positive swap fair value adjustments that benefited the prior quarter.

Income tax expense totaled $3.2 million during the first quarter, compared to $3.9 million during the prior quarter. The effective tax rate for the first quarter of 2020 was 16.9%, compared to 18.7% during the full year 2019. The prior year’s effective tax rate was adjusted for $2.2 million of stock compensation activity.

Capital
Capital ratios continue to be strong and in excess of federal bank regulatory agency “well capitalized” thresholds. The Tier 1 leverage ratio at March 31, 2020 for the consolidated company and NBH Bank was 11.05% and 9.54%, respectively. Shareholders’ equity totaled $763.5 million at March 31, 2020, $3.5 million lower than the prior quarter, driven by share repurchases executed in the first quarter totaling $19.5 million and a cumulative effect adjustment reducing retained earnings by $4.6 million due to the CECL adoption. These decreases to equity were partially offset by the quarter’s net income of $15.8 million and a $10.3 million increase in accumulated other comprehensive income, driven by positive fair market value adjustments in the available-for-sale securities portfolio. 

Common book value per share increased $0.44 to $25.04 at March 31, 2020. The tangible common book value per share increased $0.38 to $21.27 at March 31, 2020 as the quarter’s earnings and positive fair market value adjustments in the available-for-sale securities portfolio outpaced the quarter’s share repurchases, dividend and CECL cumulative effect adjustment. Excluding accumulated other comprehensive income, the tangible book value increased $0.04 to $20.87 at March 31, 2020.

Recent Events
The COVID-19 pandemic has caused substantial disruption to the communities we serve and has changed the way we live and work.  We remain committed to ensuring our associates, clients, and communities are receiving the support they need during these challenging times. All of our banking centers remain operational through our drive-thru services and on an appointment-only basis in the lobbies. We have leveraged our digital banking platform with our clients, and we have implemented company-wide remote working arrangements. Our teams are working diligently to support our clients who are experiencing financial hardship due to COVID-19 through participation in the SBA’s Paycheck Protection Program, assistance with expedited deposits of CARES Act stimulus payments, and loan modifications, as needed.

The length of the pandemic and the efficacy of the extraordinary government-mandated measures that have been put into place to address it are unknown, but have already had, and are likely to continue to have, a significantly negative impact to the U.S. labor market, consumer spending and business operations.  Several actions have been taken by governmental authorities to address the economic impact of the pandemic, including the Federal Reserve reducing the federal funds rate 1.5 percentage points to 0.00 to 0.25 percent as well as taking additional actions, such as providing up to $2.3 trillion in loans to support the economy, and the passage of the CARES Act by Congress, which provides over $2 trillion in economic assistance for American workers, families and small businesses.

Year-Over-Year Review
(All comparisons refer to the first quarter 2019, except as noted)

Fully taxable equivalent net interest income totaled $51.6 million, decreasing $0.8 million, or 1.5%, and benefited from $1.2 million of accelerated accretion on acquired loans. Average earning assets increased $111.1 million, or 2.1%, primarily driven by average loan growth of $258.7 million, partially offset by a decrease in average investment securities of $200.8 million. The fully taxable equivalent net interest margin narrowed 18 basis points to 3.87% due to lower earning asset yields. The yield on earning assets decreased 19 basis points, led by a 41 basis point decrease in the originated loan portfolio yields due to fed funds rate cuts. The cost of funds remained consistent at 0.88%.

Loans outstanding totaled $4.5 billion and increased $258.8 million, or 6.1%, led by commercial loan growth of $318.0 million, or 11.5%. New loan originations over the trailing 12 months totaled $1.2 billion, led by commercial loan originations of $744.0 million.

Average non-interest bearing demand deposits increased $29.1 million, or 2.6%. Average transaction deposits increased $116.2 million, or 3.3%, and average total deposits increased $94.4 million, or 2.1%, to $4.7 billion at March 31, 2020. Spot transaction deposits increased $57.5 million to $3.7 billion at March 31, 2020, improving the mix of transaction deposits to total deposits to 77.8% at March 31, 2020. The mix of non-interest bearing demand deposits to total deposits totaled 24.3% at March 31, 2020.

A CECL model driven provision for loan losses of $6.2 million was recorded during the quarter, net of a $0.2 million reduction in unfunded loan commitment reserves. The quarter’s provision expense increased $4.6 million from the first quarter 2019 to support originated loan growth, net charge-offs and provides coverage for the impact of deterioration in the macro-economic environment as a result of COVID-19. Annualized net charge-offs on loans totaled 0.03%, compared to 0.02% during the first quarter 2019. Non-performing loans to total loans decreased to 0.47% from 0.62% at March 31, 2019. The allowance for credit losses totaled 1.13% of total loans, compared to 0.87% at March 31, 2019 and included a CECL adoption day 1 increase of $5.8 million.

Non-interest income totaled $23.5 million, representing an increase of $6.5 million, or 38.0%, from the first quarter last year, primarily driven by an increase of $6.7 million, or 97.1%, in mortgage banking income. Service charges and bank card fees decreased $0.1 million and other non-interest income decreased $0.1 million from the first quarter last year.

Non-interest expense totaled $48.7 million, representing an increase of $4.3 million, or 9.6%, from the first quarter last year. Salaries and benefits increased $5.3 million due to higher mortgage banking commissions. Other non-interest expense decreased $0.8 million largely due to a decrease in FDIC deposit insurance fees.

Income tax expense totaled $3.2 million, compared to $3.4 million during the first quarter last year, an increase of $0.2 million. The effective tax rate for the first quarter was 16.9%, compared to an adjusted rate of 18.7% during the full year 2019. The prior year’s effective tax rate was adjusted for $2.2 million of stock compensation activity. The lower rate compared to the statutory rate reflects the continued success of our tax strategies and tax exempt income.

About Non-GAAP Financial Measures
Certain of the financial measures and ratios we present, including “tangible assets,” “return on average tangible assets,” “tangible common equity,” “return on average tangible common equity,” “tangible common book value per share,” “tangible common book value, excluding accumulated other comprehensive loss, net of tax,” “tangible common book value per share, excluding accumulated other comprehensive loss, net of tax,” “tangible common equity to tangible assets,” and “fully taxable equivalent” metrics, are supplemental measures that are not required by, or are not presented in accordance with, U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP). We refer to these financial measures and ratios as “non-GAAP financial measures.” We consider the use of select non-GAAP financial measures and ratios to be useful for financial and operational decision making and useful in evaluating period-to-period comparisons. We believe that these non-GAAP financial measures provide meaningful supplemental information regarding our performance by excluding certain expenditures or assets that we believe are not indicative of our primary business operating results or by presenting certain metrics on a fully taxable equivalent basis. We believe that management and investors benefit from referring to these non-GAAP financial measures in assessing our performance and when planning, forecasting, analyzing and comparing past, present and future periods.

These non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered a substitute for financial information presented in accordance with GAAP and you should not rely on non-GAAP financial measures alone as measures of our performance. The non-GAAP financial measures we present may differ from non-GAAP financial measures used by our peers or other companies. We compensate for these limitations by providing the equivalent GAAP measures whenever we present the non-GAAP financial measures and by including a reconciliation of the impact of the components adjusted for in the non-GAAP financial measure so that both measures and the individual components may be considered when analyzing our performance.

A reconciliation of non-GAAP financial measures to the comparable GAAP financial measures is included at the end of the financial statement tables.
