    PORTLAND, Ore.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Umpqua Holdings Corporation (NASDAQ: UMPQ), parent company of Umpqua Bank and Umpqua Investments Inc., today announced first quarter 2012 net earnings available to common shareholders of $25.3 million, or $0.23 per diluted common share, compared to net earnings available to common shareholders of $21.3 million, or $0.19 per diluted common share for the fourth quarter of 2011, and $13.4 million, or $0.12 per diluted common share, for the same period in the prior year.

    Operating earnings (1), defined as earnings available to common shareholders before gains or losses on junior subordinated debentures carried at fair value, net of tax; bargain purchase gains on acquisitions, net of tax; merger related expenses, net of tax; and goodwill impairment, were $25.7 million, or $0.23 per diluted common share for the first quarter of 2012, compared to operating earnings of $21.6 million, or $0.19 per diluted common share for the fourth quarter of 2011, and $13.8 million, or $0.12 per diluted common share, for the same period in the prior year.

    Significant financial statement items for the first quarter of 2012 include:

    • Non-covered loans and leases grew $53 million and total non-covered loan commitments increased $60 million;
    • Record mortgage banking revenue of $13.1 million on closed loan volume of $403 million;
    • Core net interest margin (1) increased 13 basis points to 4.00% in the first quarter primarily due to lower average interest bearing cash balances, increased average non-covered loan balances and lower cost of interest bearing deposit balances;
    • Non-covered, non-performing assets continues to decline, down to 1.05% of total assets;
    • Non-covered loans past due 30-89 days declined 41%;
    • Non-covered classified assets declined 7%;
    • Provision for non-covered loan losses of $3.2 million and non-covered net charge-offs of $9.5 million, with the difference between the two resulting from the charge-off of specific reserves established in the prior quarter and continued improvement in the loan portfolio;
    • The allowance for non-covered credit losses ended the quarter at 1.48% of total non-covered loans and leases;
    • The cost of interest bearing deposits for the first quarter of 2012 was 0.49%, representing a decrease of 9 basis points on a sequential quarter basis;
    • Debt Capital Markets revenue of $3.1 million;
    • Tangible common equity ratio of 9.38%; and
    • Total risk-based capital of 17.04%, and tier 1 common to risk weighted asset ratio of 12.95%.

    “This was another strong quarter for Umpqua Holdings led by record revenues from our Home Lending and our Debt Capital Markets divisions,” said Ray Davis, president and CEO of Umpqua Holdings Corporation. “Credit quality is performing as expected as our non-performing assets continue to decline while our total loans outstanding continue to grow. We believe that Umpqua has never been better positioned to benefit from both of our growth strategies - organic expansion and potential acquisitions.”

    (1) Operating earnings and Core net interest margin are considered “non-GAAP” financial measures. More information regarding these measurements and a reconciliation to the comparable GAAP measurements are provided under the heading Non-GAAP Financial Measures below.

    Asset quality – Non-covered loan portfolio

    Non-covered, non-performing assets were $120.3 million, or 1.05% of total assets, as of March 31, 2012, compared to $125.6 million, or 1.09% of total assets as of December 31, 2011, and $177.0 million, or 1.53% of total assets as of March 31, 2011. Of this amount, as of March 31, 2012, $80.5 million represented non-accrual loans, $5.5 million represented loans past due greater than 90 days and still accruing interest, and $34.3 million was other real estate owned (“OREO”).

    The Company has aggressively charged-down impaired assets to their disposition values, and the assets are expected to be resolved at those levels, absent further declines in market prices. As of March 31, 2012, the non-covered, non-performing assets of $120.3 million have been written down by 39%, or $77.4 million, from their current par balance of $197.7 million.

    The provision for non-covered loan losses for the first quarter of 2012 was $3.2 million, a 52% decrease from the prior quarter, and a 79% decrease from the same period of the prior year. This reflects continued improvement and stabilization of credit quality, and the decline of non-performing loans. Total net charge-offs for the first quarter of 2012 increased to $9.5 million, due in part to the charge-off of specific reserves established in the prior quarter, reducing the allowance for credit losses to 1.48% of non-covered loans and leases at March 31, 2012, as compared to 1.59% of total non-covered loans as of December 31, 2011 and 1.75% of total non-covered loans as of March 31, 2011. The annualized net charge-off rate for the first quarter of 2012 was 0.64%.

    Non-covered loans past due 30 to 89 days were $20.8 million, or 0.35% of non-covered loans and leases as of March 31, 2012, as compared to $35.2 million, or 0.60% of non-covered loans and leases as of December 31, 2011, and $70.7 million, or 1.25% of non-covered loans and leases as of March 31, 2011.

    Since 2007, the Company has been aggressively resolving problems arising from the current economic downturn. The following table recaps the Company’s credit quality trends since the second quarter of 2007, as it relates to the non-covered loan portfolio:

    Non-covered construction loan portfolio

    Total non-covered construction loans declined to $261 million as of March 31, 2012, representing a decrease of 6% since December 31, 2011, and a decrease of 29% from March 31, 2011. Within this portfolio, the residential development loan segment was $75 million, or 1% of the total non-covered loan portfolio. Of this amount, $13.1 million represented non-performing loans and $23.0 million were classified as performing restructured loans. The residential development loan segment has decreased $57 million, or 43%, since March 31, 2011.

    The remaining $186 million in non-covered construction loans as of March 31, 2012, primarily represent commercial construction projects. Of this amount, $2.1 million represented non-performing loans and $19.9 million were classified as performing restructured loans.

    Non-covered commercial real estate loan portfolio

    The total non-covered term commercial real estate loan portfolio was $3.62 billion as of March 31, 2012. Of this total, $2.45 billion are non-owner occupied and $1.17 billion are owner occupied. Of the total term commercial real estate portfolio, $45.6 million were on non-accrual status, $0.9 million were past due 90 days or more and accruing interest, and $12.1 million were past due 30-89 days as of March 31, 2012. Of the total non-covered commercial real estate portfolio, 5% matures in 2012, 7% in 2013, 17% in years 2014-2015, and 21% in years 2016-2017. The remaining 50% of the portfolio matures in or after the year 2018.

    Non-covered restructured loans

    Non-covered restructured loans on accrual status were $70.2 million as of March 31, 2012, as compared to $80.6 million as of December 31, 2011, and $67.5 million as of March 31, 2011.

    Additional information related to asset quality

    Additional tables can be found at the end of this earnings release covering the following aspects of the Company's non-covered loan portfolio: non-performing asset detail by type and by region, loans past due 30 to 89 days by type and by region, loans past due 30 to 89 days trends, and restructured loans on accrual status by type and by region.

    Asset quality – Covered loan portfolio

    Covered non-performing assets were $12.8 million, or 0.11% of total assets, as of March 31, 2012, as compared to $19.5 million, or 0.17% of total assets, as of December 31, 2011, and $27.7 million, or 0.24% of total assets, as of March 31, 2011. The total non-performing assets balance for all periods presented represents covered OREO.

    In accordance with the guidance governing the accounting for purchased loan portfolios with evidence of credit deterioration subsequent to origination, the covered loans acquired have been assembled into pools of loans. As a result, individual loans underlying the loan pools are not reported as non-performing. Rather, accretable yield of the pool is recognized to the extent pool level expected future cash flows discounted at the effective rate exceed the carrying value of the pool. To the extent discounted expected future cash flows are less than the carrying value of the pool, provisions for covered credit losses are recognized as a charge to earnings, but the adjusted carrying value of the loan pool continues to accrete into income at the effective rate.

    As of acquisition date, covered non-performing assets were written-down to their estimated fair value, incorporating our estimate of future expected cash flows until the ultimate resolution of these credits. The estimated credit losses embedded in these acquired non-performing loan portfolios were based on management’s and third-party consultants’ credit reviews of the portfolios performed during due diligence. To the extent actual or projected cash flows are less than originally estimated, additional provisions for loan losses on the covered loan portfolio will be recognized; however, these provisions would be mostly offset by a corresponding increase in the FDIC indemnification (loss sharing) asset recognized within non-interest income. To the extent actual or projected cash flows are more than originally estimated, the increase in cash flows is prospectively recognized in interest income; however, the increase in interest income would be offset by a corresponding decrease in the FDIC indemnification (loss sharing) asset recognized within non-interest income.

    Net interest margin

    The Company reported a tax equivalent net interest margin of 4.08% for the first quarter of 2012, as compared to 4.13% for the fourth quarter of 2011, and 4.18% for the first quarter of 2011. The decrease in net interest margin in the current quarter over the prior quarter resulted primarily from the decline in non-covered loan yields, the decrease in average covered loan balances and the decrease in loan disposal gains from the covered loan portfolio, partially offset by a decrease in average interest bearing cash, the increase in average non-covered loans outstanding, a decrease in interest bearing liabilities and the decrease in the cost of interest bearing deposits. The decrease in net interest margin in the current quarter over the same quarter of the prior year resulted primarily from the decline in non-covered loan yields, the decrease in average covered loan balances and the decline in investment yields, partially offset by a decrease in average interest bearing cash, the increase in average non-covered loans outstanding, a decrease in interest bearing liabilities and the decrease in the cost of interest bearing deposits.

    Loan disposal activities within the covered loan portfolio, either through loans being paid off in full or transferred to OREO, result in gains within covered loan interest income to the extent assets received in satisfaction of debt (such as cash or the net realizable value of OREO received) exceed the allocated carrying value of the loan disposed of from the pool. Loan disposal activities contributed $2.8 million of interest income in the first quarter of 2012, as compared to $6.7 million in the fourth quarter of 2011 and $8.2 million in the first quarter of 2011. While dispositions of covered loans positively impact net interest margin, we recognize a corresponding decrease to the change in FDIC indemnification asset at the incremental loss-sharing rate within other non-interest income. Excluding the impact of covered loan disposal gains, consolidated net interest margin would have been 3.97% for the current quarter, 3.88% for the prior quarter, and 3.86% in the same quarter of the prior year.

    Interest and fee reversals on non-accrual loans during the first quarter of 2012 were $0.6 million, negatively impacting the net interest margin by 3 basis points, as compared to recoveries of $0.2 million for the fourth quarter of 2011 and reversals of $1.3 million in the first quarter of 2011. Excluding the impact of loan disposal gains and interest and fee reversals or recoveries on non-accrual loans, our core net interest margin was 4.00% for the first quarter of 2012, 3.87% for the fourth quarter of 2011 and 3.91% for the first quarter of 2011. Core net interest margin is considered a “non-GAAP” financial measure. More information regarding this measurement and reconciliation to the comparable GAAP measurement is provided under the heading Non-GAAP Financial Measures below.

    For the eighteenth consecutive quarter, the Company has reduced the cost of interest bearing deposits. As a result of these efforts, the cost of interest bearing deposits was 0.49% for the first quarter of 2012, 9 basis points lower than the fourth quarter of 2011 and 34 basis points lower than the first quarter of 2011. Management closely and continually monitors market deposit rates and develops our pricing strategy to ensure we are competitive in the market and in-line with our liquidity position and funding needs.

    Mortgage banking revenue

    The Company recorded a record $13.1 million in total mortgage banking revenue during the first quarter of 2012, on closed loan volume of $403 million. This represents a 39% increase in revenue over the fourth quarter of 2011 and a 148% increase in revenue over the same period of the prior year. In the first quarter of 2012, the Company recognized a decrease in the fair value of the mortgage servicing right assets in the income statement of $0.9 million. The decline is primarily related to the continuation of historically low mortgage rates during the quarter that have led to elevated levels of refinancing activity. Income from the origination and sale of mortgage loans was $12.6 million in the first quarter, representing a 38% increase over the prior quarter, and a 192% increase as compared to the same quarter of the prior year. As of March 31, 2012, the Company serviced $2.2 billion of mortgage loans for others, and the related mortgage servicing right asset is valued at $20.2 million, or 0.92% of the total serviced portfolio principal balance.

    Fair value of junior subordinated debentures

    The Company recognized a $0.6 million loss from the change in fair value of junior subordinated debentures during the first quarter of 2012. The majority of the fair value difference over par value relates to the $61.8 million of junior subordinated debentures issued in the third quarter of 2007, which carry interest rate spreads of 135 and 275 basis points over the 3 month LIBOR. As of March 31, 2012, the credit risk adjusted interest spread for potential new issuances was estimated to be significantly higher than the contractual spread. The difference between these spreads has created a cumulative gain in fair value of the Company’s junior subordinated debentures, which results from their carrying amount compared to the estimated amount that would be paid to transfer the liability in an orderly transaction among market participants.

    As these instruments are no longer being originated or actively traded in the primary or secondary markets, the quarterly fair value adjustments are difficult to estimate. We utilize an income approach valuation technique to determine the fair value of these liabilities using our estimation of market discount rate assumptions. The Company monitors activity in the trust preferred and related markets, to the extent available, changes related to the current and anticipated future interest rate environment, and considers our entity-specific creditworthiness, to validate the reasonableness of the credit risk adjusted spread and effective yield utilized in our discounted cash flow model. Absent changes to the significant inputs utilized in the discounted cash flow model used to measure the fair value of these instruments at each reporting period, the cumulative discount for each junior subordinated debenture will reverse over time, ultimately returning the carrying values of these instruments to their notional values at their expected redemption dates. As of March 31, 2012, the total par value of junior subordinated debentures carried at fair value was $134.0 million, and the fair value was $83.5 million.

    Non-interest expense

    Total non-interest expense for the first quarter of 2012 was $87.7 million, compared to $85.3 million for the fourth quarter of 2011 and $84.2 million for the first quarter of 2011. Included in non-interest expense are several categories that are outside of the operational control of the Company or depend on changes in market values, including FDIC deposit insurance assessments and gain or loss on other real estate owned, as well as non-operating related expenses such as merger related costs. Excluding these non-controllable, valuation related or non-operating related items, the remaining non-interest expense items totaled $80.0 million for the first quarter of 2012, as compared to $79.6 million for the fourth quarter of 2011, and $76.4 million for the first quarter of 2011. The increase in non-interest expense in the current period over the prior quarter consists primarily of increased salaries and benefits expense, related to mortgage and commercial banking loan production, partially offset by a reduction in workout costs.

    During the first quarter of 2012, the Company incurred external loan collection and OREO management expense of $3.9 million, compared to $4.4 million for the fourth quarter of 2011, and $4.8 million for the first quarter of 2011. Mortgage production related expense was $7.2 million in the first quarter of 2012, compared to $6.5 million in the fourth quarter of 2011, and $4.3 million for the first quarter of 2011.

    Total FDIC deposit insurance assessments during the first quarter of 2012 were $2.0 million, compared to $2.2 million in the prior quarter, and $3.9 million for the first quarter of 2011. The decrease in the deposit insurance expense in the current quarter as compared to the same period of the prior year resulted from a structural change in the deposit assessment calculation and rate schedule effective in the second quarter of 2011.

    Income taxes

    The Company recorded a provision for income taxes of $13.3 million in the first quarter of 2012, representing an effective tax rate of 34.2% on an annualized basis. The increase in the effective income tax rate in the quarter reflects the increased level of pre-tax income and the effects of permanent differences on our taxable income year to date.

    Balance sheet

    Total consolidated assets as of March 31, 2012 were $11.5 billion, compared to $11.6 billion on December 31, 2011 and $11.6 billion a year ago. Total gross loans and leases (covered and non-covered), and deposits, were $6.5 billion and $9.1 billion, respectively, as of March 31, 2012, as compared to $6.5 billion and $9.2 billion, respectively, as of December 31, 2011, and $6.4 billion and $9.3 billion, respectively, as of March 31, 2011.

    Total non-covered loans held for investment increased $53.2 million during the first quarter of 2012. This increase is principally due to new loan production in the current period. Excluding non-covered charge-offs of $12.7 million, the non-covered loan portfolio increased $65.9 million in the current quarter. Covered loans declined $29.3 million during the first quarter of 2012. The covered loan portfolio will continue to run-off over time as borrower payments are received and as we work out and resolve troubled credits.

    Total deposits decreased $121.5 million, or 1%, on a sequential quarter basis, and $177.5 million, or 2%, from the same period of the prior year. The decline in deposits primarily results from the run-off of higher priced time deposits and seasonal declines in public funds deposits. The increase in securities sold under agreements to repurchase over the prior year results from the FDIC discontinuing the allowance of collateralization for uninsured non-public funds deposits, while various customers still require some form of collateralization based on their business requirements.

    Due to the significant amount of liquidity in the banking system and generally unattractive bond market conditions since the second half of 2009, the Company has been holding larger levels of interest bearing cash rather than investing all excess liquidity into the bond market. At March 31, 2012, the Company had $403 million of interest bearing cash earning 0.25%, the target Federal Funds Rate. For interest bearing cash in excess of our internal target balance range, we have reinvested these funds and purchased short duration government-sponsored investment securities to offset the interest expense associated with our deposit balances. The Company’s available for sale investment portfolio was $3.1 billion as of March 31, 2012, representing a 6% decrease over the prior year. The Company plans to hold an increased interest bearing cash position relative to historical levels until the investment alternatives in the market improve from both a return and duration standpoint and to fund anticipated future loan production. Including secured off-balance sheet lines of credit, total available liquidity to the Company was $5.0 billion as of March 31, 2012, representing 44% of total assets and 54% of total deposits.

    Capital

    As of March 31, 2012, total shareholders’ equity was $1.7 billion, comprised entirely of common equity. Book value per common share was $15.08, tangible book value per common share was $9.04 and the ratio of tangible common equity to tangible assets was 9.38% (see explanation and reconciliation of these items in the Non-GAAP Financial Measures section below). During the first quarter of 2012, the Company repurchased 396,000 shares of common stock, for a total of $5.0 million through the previously announced share repurchase plan. The Company may repurchase up to 12.2 million of additional shares under the previously announced share repurchase plan, and will remain opportunistic based on market conditions.

    The Company’s estimated total risk-based capital ratio as of March 31, 2012 is 17.04%. This represents a decrease from December 31, 2011, as a result of increased risk weighted assets primarily due to non-covered loan growth and a decrease in interest bearing cash. Our total risk-based capital level is substantially in excess of the regulatory definition of “well-capitalized” of 10.00%. The Company’s estimated Tier 1 common to risk weighted assets ratio is 12.95% as of March 31, 2012. These capital ratios as of March 31, 2012 are estimates pending completion and filing of the Company’s regulatory reports.

    American Perspective Bank Transaction

    On April 10, 2012, Umpqua Bank announced the signing of a definitive agreement to acquire American Perspective Bank for $10.00 per share in cash, giving the acquisition a total value of approximately $44.7 million. The transaction remains subject to a number of closing conditions including customary conditions related to receipt of shareholder and regulatory approval, a limit on the number of dissenting shareholders, no material adverse effects with respect to either party, the continuing accuracy of representations and warranties and performance by both parties of the merger agreement covenants. Each party may terminate the merger agreement under specific situations including an uncured breach, a determination by American Perspective Bank’s board of directors that termination is required to comply with their fiduciary duties, American Perspective Bank shareholders fail to approve the merger agreement, or the American Perspective Bank board of directors fails to recommend the transaction to shareholders. The merger agreement is filed as an exhibit to a Form 8-K filed with the SEC on April 10, 2012.

    Non-GAAP Financial Measures

    In addition to results presented in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States of America (GAAP), this press release contains certain non-GAAP financial measures. Umpqua believes that certain non-GAAP financial measures provide investors with information useful in understanding Umpqua’s financial performance; however, readers of this report are urged to review these non-GAAP financial measures in conjunction with the GAAP results as reported.

    Umpqua recognizes gains or losses on our junior subordinated debentures carried at fair value resulting from changes in interest rates and the estimated market credit risk adjusted spread that do not directly correlate with the Company’s operating performance. Also, Umpqua incurs significant expenses related to the completion and integration of mergers and acquisitions. Additionally, we may recognize goodwill impairment losses that have no direct effect on the Company’s or the Bank’s cash balances, liquidity, or regulatory capital ratios. Lastly, Umpqua may recognize one-time bargain purchase gains on certain acquisitions that are not reflective of Umpqua’s on-going earnings power. Accordingly, management believes that our operating results are best measured on a comparative basis excluding the impact of gains or losses on junior subordinated debentures measured at fair value, net of tax, merger-related expenses, net of tax, and other charges related to business combinations such as goodwill impairment charges or bargain purchase gains, net of tax. We define operating earnings as earnings available to common shareholders before gains or losses on junior subordinated debentures carried at fair value, net of tax, bargain purchase gains on acquisitions, net of tax, merger related expenses, net of tax, and goodwill impairment, and we calculate operating earnings per diluted share by dividing operating earnings by the same diluted share total used in determining diluted earnings per common share.

    The following table provides the reconciliation of earnings available to common shareholders (GAAP) to operating earnings (non-GAAP), and earnings per diluted common share (GAAP) to operating earnings per diluted share (non-GAAP) for the periods presented:

    Management believes pre-tax, pre-credit cost operating income is a useful financial measure because it enables investors to assess the Company’s ability to generate income and capital to cover credit losses through a credit cycle. Management uses this measure to evaluate core operating results exclusive of credit costs, which are often market driven or outside of the Company’s control, to monitor how we are growing core pre-tax income of the Company over time, through organic growth and acquisitions. Pre-tax, pre-credit cost operating income is calculated starting with operating earnings (as defined above) and adding back operating provision for income taxes, earnings allocated to participating securities, provision for loan and lease losses, net gains or losses on other real estate owned and credit related external workout costs. For covered losses and expenses that are subject to loss-share, we have also deducted the associated gain recognized on the FDIC indemnification asset.

    The following table provides the reconciliation of operating earnings (non-GAAP) to pre-tax, pre-credit cost operating income (non-GAAP) for the periods presented (the reconciliation of earnings available to common shareholders (GAAP) to operating earnings (non-GAAP) is provided in the preceding tables):

    Management believes core net interest income and core net interest margin are useful financial measures because they enable investors to evaluate the underlying growth or compression in these values excluding interest income adjustments related to credit quality. Management uses these measures to evaluate core net interest income operating results exclusive of credit costs, in order to monitor our effectiveness in growing higher interest yielding assets and managing our cost of interest bearing liabilities over time. Core net interest income is calculated as net interest income, adjusting tax exempt interest income to its taxable equivalent, adding back interest and fee reversals related to new non-accrual loans during the period, and deducting the interest income gains recognized from loan disposition activities within covered loan pools. Core net interest margin is calculated by dividing annualized core net interest income by a period’s average interest earning assets.

    The following table provides the reconciliation of net interest income (GAAP) to core net interest income (non-GAAP), and net interest margin (GAAP) to core net interest margin (non-GAAP) for the periods presented:

    Management believes tangible common equity and the tangible common equity ratio are meaningful measures of capital adequacy. Tangible common equity is calculated as total shareholders' equity less goodwill and other intangible assets, net (excluding MSRs). Tangible assets are total assets less goodwill and other intangible assets, net (excluding MSRs). The tangible common equity ratio is calculated as tangible common shareholders’ equity divided by tangible assets.
