DETAILED FINANCIALS

ServisFirst Bancshares, Inc. reported net income and net income available to common stockholders of $34.8 million for the quarter ended March 31, 2020, compared to net income and net income available to common stockholders of $35.0 million for the same quarter in 2019.  Basic and diluted earnings per common share were $0.65 and $0.64, respectively, for the first quarter of 2020, compared to $0.65 and $0.65, respectively, for the first quarter of 2019.

Annualized return on average assets was 1.54% and annualized return on average common stockholders’ equity was 16.23% for the first quarter of 2020, compared to 1.75% and 19.42%, respectively, for the first quarter of 2019.

Net interest income was $77.6 million for the first quarter of 2020, compared to $75.8 million for the fourth quarter of 2019 and $68.8 million for the first quarter of 2019.  The net interest margin in the first quarter of 2020 was 3.58% compared to 3.47% in the fourth quarter of 2019 and 3.56% in the first quarter of 2019.  Linked quarter decreases in average rates paid on deposits in excess of decreases in loan yields drove a favorable rate change and increases in average balances in loans, non-interest-bearing demand deposits and equity drove favorable volume change.

Average loans for the first quarter of 2020 were $7.36 billion, an increase of $259.0 million, or 15% annualized, over average loans of $7.10 billion for the fourth quarter of 2019, and an increase of $759.7 million, or 12%, over average loans of $6.60 billion for the first quarter of 2019.

Average total deposits for the first quarter of 2020 were $7.64 billion, a decrease of $44,000,  from average total deposits of $7.68 billion for the fourth quarter of 2019, and an increase of $662.7 million, or 10%, over average total deposits of $6.98 billion for the first quarter of 2019.

Non-performing assets to total assets were 0.44% for the first quarter of 2020, a decrease of six basis points compared to 0.50% for the fourth quarter of 2019 and an increase of three basis points compared to 0.41% for the first quarter of 2019. Annualized net charge-offs to average loans were 0.26%, a 10 basis point decrease compared to 0.36% for the fourth quarter of 2019 and an increase of six basis points compared to 0.20% for the first quarter of 2019.  We recorded a $13.6 million provision for loan losses in the first quarter of 2020 compared to $5.9 million in the fourth quarter of 2019 and $4.9 million in the first quarter of 2019.  We have added a new pandemic qualitative factor to our allowance for loan loss calculation and have increased qualitative factors related to macroeconomic conditions; these changes resulted in the need for an additional loan loss provision during the quarter.  The allowance for loan loss as a percentage of total loans was 1.13% at March 31, 2020, an increase of eight basis points compared to 1.05% at December 31, 2019 and an increase of 11 basis points compared to 1.02% as of March 31, 2019.  The CARES Act, passed into law on March 27, 2020 as a result of the COVID-19 outbreak, allows companies to delay their adoption of Accounting Standards Update (ASU) 2016-13, Measurement of Credit Losses on Financial Instruments (CECL), including the current expected credit losses methodology for estimating allowances for credit losses. We have elected to delay adoption of ASU 2016-13 until the date on which the national emergency concerning the COVID-19 outbreak terminates or December 31, 2020, with an effective retrospective implementation date of January 1, 2020.  In management’s opinion, the allowance is adequate and was determined by consistent application of ServisFirst Bank’s methodology for calculating its allowance for loan losses.

Non-interest income for the first quarter of 2020 increased $1.8 million, or 36%, to $6.7 million from $4.9 million in the first quarter of 2019.  Deposit service charges increased $214,000 in the first quarter of 2020, or 13%, compared to the first quarter of 2019.  Mortgage banking revenue almost doubled to $1.1 million from the first quarter of 2019 to the first quarter of 2020.  Mortgage loan sales increased approximately 96% during the first quarter of 2020 when compared to the same quarter in 2019.  Credit card revenue increased $189,000, or 12%, to $1.8 million during the first quarter of 2020, compared to $1.6 million during the first quarter of 2019. The number of credit card accounts increased approximately 43% and the aggregate amount of sales on all credit card accounts increased 29% during the first quarter of 2020.  Cash surrender value of life insurance increased $691,000, or 91%, to $1.5 million during the first quarter of 2020, compared to $762,000 during the first quarter of 2019.  We purchased $75.0 million of additional life insurance contracts during the third quarter of 2019.  Other income for the first quarter of 2020 increased $140,000, or 43%, to $469,000 from $329,000 in the first quarter of 2019. 

Non-interest expense for the first quarter of 2020 increased $2.6 million, or 10%, to $27.9 million from $25.3 million in the first quarter of 2019, and increased $2.3 million, or 9%, on a linked quarter basis.  Salary and benefit expense for the first quarter of 2020 increased $1.4 million, or 10%, to $15.7 million from $14.3 million in the first quarter of 2019, and increased $2.0 million, or 15%, on a linked quarter basis.  We adjusted accrued incentives downward by $1.0 million in December based on actual year-end production in 2019.  The number of FTE employees increased from 485 at March 31, 2019 to 492 at March 31, 2020, or 1%, and decreased by eight from the end of the fourth quarter of 2019.  Equipment and occupancy expense increased $141,000, or 6%, to $2.4 million in the first quarter of 2020, from $2.3 million in the first quarter of 2019, and decreased $61,000 on a linked-quarter basis.  Third party processing and other services expense increased $934,000, or 39%, to $3.3 million in the first quarter of 2020, from $2.4 million in the first quarter of 2019.  Professional services expense decreased $46,000, or 5%, to $948,000 in the first quarter of 2020, from $994,000 in the first quarter of 2019, and decreased $215,000 on a linked-quarter basis.  FDIC and other regulatory assessments increased $313,000 to $1.3 million in the first quarter of 2020, from $1.0 million in the first quarter of 2019.  Growth in our assessment base was partially offset by a decrease in our assessment rate.  Expenses associated with other real estate owned increased $579,000 to $601,000 in the first quarter of 2020, from $22,000 in the first quarter of 2019.  This increase was the result of write-downs in value of property based on updated appraisals related to one foreclosed loan relationship in our Nashville region.  Other operating expenses for the first quarter of 2020 decreased $722,000, or 17%, to $3.6 million from $4.4 million in the first quarter of 2019, and decreased $235,000 on a linked-quarter basis.  Write-downs in tax credit investments decreased significantly as our New Market Tax Credit partnerships terminated at the end of 2019.  Decreases in travel and entertainment expenses also contributed to the decrease in other operating expenses.  We accrued $250,000 for a pending legal matter during the first quarter of 2020.  The efficiency ratio was 33.11% during the first quarter of 2020 compared to 34.36% during the first quarter of 2019 and compared to 30.83% during the fourth quarter of 2019.

Income tax expense decreased $467,000, or 6%, to $8.0 million in the first quarter of 2020, compared to $8.5 million in the first quarter of 2019.  Our effective tax rate was 18.76% for the first quarter of 2020 compared to 19.53% for the first quarter of 2019.  We recognized a reduction in provision for income taxes resulting from excess tax benefits from the exercise and vesting of stock options and restricted stock during the first quarters of 2020 and 2019 of $1.1 million and $772,000, respectively.

GAAP Reconciliation and Management Explanation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

During the third quarter of 2019, we recorded a $1.7 million credit to our FDIC and other regulatory assessments expense as a result of the FDIC’s Small Bank Assessment Credit.  Financial measures included in this press release that are presented adjusted for this credit are net income, net income available to common stockholders, diluted earnings per share, return on average assets and return on average common stockholders’ equity. Each of these five financial measures excludes the impact of this item, net of tax, attributable to the FDIC Small Bank Assessment Credit and are all considered non-GAAP financial measures. This press release also contains certain non-GAAP financial measures, including tangible common stockholders’ equity, total tangible assets, tangible book value per share and tangible common equity to total tangible assets, each of which excludes goodwill and core deposit intangibles associated with our acquisition of Metro Bancshares, Inc. in January 2015 and pre-tax, pre-provision return on average assets.  We believe these non-GAAP financial measures provide useful information to management and investors that is supplementary to our financial condition, results of operations and cash flows computed in accordance with GAAP; however, we acknowledge that these non-GAAP financial measures have a number of limitations.  As such, you should not view these disclosures as a substitute for results determined in accordance with GAAP, and they are not necessarily comparable to non-GAAP financial measures that other companies, including those in our industry, use.  The following reconciliation tables provide a more detailed analysis of the non-GAAP financial measures as of and for the comparative periods presented in this press release.  Dollars are in thousands, except share and per share data.
