Company Release - 4/29/2020 5:40 PM ET

SHORT HILLS, N.J., April 29, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Investors Bancorp, Inc. (NASDAQ: ISBC) ("Company"), the holding company for Investors Bank ("Bank"), reported net income of $39.5 million, or  $0.17 per diluted share, for the three months ended March 31, 2020 as compared to $48.7 million, or $0.19 per diluted share, for the three months ended December 31, 2019 and $48.2 million, or $0.18 per diluted share, for the three months ended March 31, 2019.

Net income for the three months ended March 31, 2020 was impacted by a provision for credit losses of $31.2 million under the Current Expected Credit Losses ("CECL") accounting standard effective January 1, 2020, as compared to a provision for credit losses of $1.5 million for the three months ended December 31, 2019 and $3.0 million for the three months ended March 31, 2019.  The primary drivers of the increase in our provision for credit losses were the adoption of CECL and the economic forecasts that include the estimated impact of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Company also announced today that its Board of Directors declared a cash dividend of $0.12 per share to be paid on May 26, 2020 for stockholders of record as of May 11, 2020.

Financial Performance Overview

First Quarter 2020 compared to Fourth Quarter 2019

For the first quarter of 2020, net income totaled $39.5 million, a decrease of $9.2 million as compared to $48.7 million for the fourth quarter of 2019.  The changes in net income on a sequential quarter basis are highlighted below.

Net interest income increased by $4.5 million, or 2.7%, as compared to the fourth quarter of 2019.  Changes within interest income and expense categories are as follows:

  • Interest expense decreased $8.8 million, primarily attributed to the weighted average cost of interest-bearing liabilities, which decreased 16 basis points to 1.58% for the three months ended March 31, 2020. The average balance of interest-bearing deposits increased $42.8 million, or 0.3%, to $15.3 billion and the average balance of total borrowed funds decreased $63.2 million, or 1.1%, to $5.7 billion for the three months ended March 31, 2020.
  • A decrease in interest and dividend income of $4.3 million, or 1.6%, to $256.1 million as compared to the fourth quarter of 2019, primarily attributed to the average balance of net loans, which decreased $292.6 million, mainly as a result of paydowns and payoffs, partially offset by loan originations. The weighted average yield on net loans decreased 1 basis point to 4.23%.
  • Prepayment penalties, which are included in interest income, totaled $7.6 million for the three months ended March 31, 2020 as compared to $5.4 million for the three months ended December 31, 2019.

Net interest margin increased 10 basis points to 2.71% for the three months ended March 31, 2020 compared to the three months ended December 31, 2019, driven primarily by the lower cost of interest-bearing liabilities and an increase in prepayment penalties, partially offset by the lower yield on interest-earning assets.

Total non-interest income was $14.7 million for the three months ended March 31, 2020, a decrease of $5.8 million, as compared to $20.5 million for the fourth quarter of 2019.  The decrease in non-interest income was primarily due to a $2.9 million decrease in customer swap fee income and a $2.5 million decrease in net gains on our equipment finance portfolio.

Total non-interest expenses were $102.6 million for the three months ended March 31, 2020, a decrease of $4.3 million, or 4.0%, as compared to the fourth quarter of 2019.  The change was primarily due to a decrease of $3.9 million in other operating expenses driven by declines in overdraft losses and customer swap expense.

Income tax expense was $14.6 million for the three months ended March 31, 2020 and $32.2 million for the three months ended December 31, 2019.  The effective tax rate was 27.0% for the three months ended March 31, 2020 and 39.8% for the three months ended December 31, 2019.  The decrease in the effective tax rate was primarily related to additional income tax expense recognized during the three months ended December 31, 2019 resulting from the revaluation of the Company's net deferred tax asset as the State of New Jersey provided clarification in December 2019 relating to previously enacted tax law changes.

First Quarter 2020 compared to First Quarter 2019

For the first quarter of 2020, net income totaled $39.5 million, a decrease of $8.6 million as compared to $48.2 million in the first quarter of 2019.  The changes in net income on a year over year quarter basis are highlighted below.

On a year over year basis, first quarter of 2020 net interest income increased by $10.6 million, or 6.5%, as compared to the first quarter of 2019 due to:

  • Interest expense decreased $10.7 million, or 11.5%, primarily attributed to the weighted average cost of interest-bearing liabilities, which decreased 23 basis points to 1.58% for the three months ended March 31, 2020. The average balance of total borrowed funds increased $451.7 million, or 8.6%, to $5.7 billion, and the average balance of interest-bearing deposits decreased $62.2 million, or 0.4%, to $15.3 billion for the three months ended March 31, 2020.
  • A decrease in interest and dividend income of $118,000, or 0.1%, to $256.1 million, primarily attributed to a $225.6 million decrease in the average balance of net loans, mainly as a result of paydowns and payoffs, partially offset by loan originations. The weighted average yield on net loans increased 4 basis points to 4.23%, primarily driven by an increase in prepayment penalties.
  • Prepayment penalties, which are included in interest income, totaled $7.6 million for the three months ended March 31, 2020 as compared to $3.7 million for the three months ended March 31, 2019.

Net interest margin increased 16 basis points year over year to 2.71% for the three months ended March 31, 2020 from 2.55% for the three months ended March 31, 2019, driven primarily by the lower cost of interest-bearing liabilities and an increase in prepayment penalties, partially offset by the lower yield on interest-earning assets.

Total non-interest income was $14.7 million for the three months ended March 31, 2020, an increase of $3.5 million year over year.  This increase was primarily due to an increase of $1.4 million in gain on loans, an increase of $889,000 in other income primarily attributed to non-depository investment products, and an increase of $691,000 in fees and service charge income.

Total non-interest expenses were $102.6 million for the three months ended March 31, 2020, a decrease of $851,000, or 0.8%, year over year.  The decrease was primarily due to decreases of $1.2 million, $650,000 and $606,000 in advertising and promotional expense, other operating expenses and compensation and benefit expense, respectively, partially offset by increases of $1.1 million and $1.0 million in federal insurance premiums and professional fees, respectively.

Income tax expense was $14.6 million for the three months ended March 31, 2020 and $19.3 million for the three months ended March 31, 2019.  The effective tax rate was 27.0% for the three months ended March 31, 2020 and 28.6% for the three months ended March 31, 2019.

Asset Quality

On January 1, 2020, the Company adopted ASU 2016-13, Financial Instruments- Credit Losses (Topic 326): Measurement of Credit Losses on Financial Instruments ("CECL").  CECL requires the measurement of all expected credit losses over the life of financial instruments held at the reporting date based on historical experience, current conditions, and reasonable and supportable forecasts.  CECL replaces the incurred loss methodology and therefore, the allowance and provision for credit losses is based upon estimated expected credit losses rather than incurred losses.  In connection with the adoption of CECL, the Company recognized a cumulative effect adjustment that reduced stockholders' equity by $8.5 million, net of tax.  At adoption, the Company increased its allowance for credit losses by $11.7 million, comprised of $12.7 million and $2.6 million, respectively, for unfunded commitments and held-to-maturity debt securities, partially offset by a decrease of $3.6 million for loans.

Our provision for credit losses is primarily a result of the expected credit losses on our loans, unfunded commitments and held-to-maturity debt securities over the life of these financial instruments, including the inherent credit risk in these financial instruments, the growth and composition of our portfolios of these financial instruments, and the level of charge-offs.  At March 31, 2020, our allowance for credit losses and related quarterly provision were significantly impacted by the adoption of CECL and the impact of COVID-19 on the current and forecasted economic conditions.  For the three months ended March 31, 2020, our provision for credit losses was $31.2 million, compared to $1.5 million for the three months ended December 31, 2019 and $3.0 million for the three months ended March 31, 2019.  For the three months ended March 31, 2020, net charge-offs were $8.0 million compared to net charge-offs of $1.4 million for the three months ended December 31, 2019 and net charge-offs of $4.1 million for the three months ended March 31, 2019.

Our accruing past due loans and non-accrual loans discussed below exclude certain purchased credit deteriorated ("PCD") loans, primarily consisting of loans recorded in the Company's acquisitions.  Under U.S. GAAP, PCD loans (acquired at a discount that is due, in part, to credit quality) are not subject to delinquency classification in the same manner as loans originated by the Bank.

Total non-accrual loans were $98.3 million, or 0.46% of total loans, at March 31, 2020 compared to $95.2 million, or 0.44% of total loans, at December 31, 2019 and $117.7 million, or 0.54% of total loans, at March 31, 2019.  We continue to proactively and diligently work to resolve our troubled loans.

At March 31, 2020, there were $35.6 million of loans deemed as troubled debt restructured loans ("TDRs"), of which $26.3 million were residential and consumer loans, $6.9 million were commercial and industrial loans and $2.4 million were commercial real estate loans.  TDRs of $12.8 million were classified as accruing and $22.8 million were classified as non-accrual at March 31, 2020.

The following table sets forth non-accrual loans and accruing past due loans (excluding PCD loans and loans held for sale) on the dates indicated as well as certain asset quality ratios.

During the three months ended March 31, 2020, we originated $225.9 million in multi-family loans, $217.0 million in commercial and industrial loans, $139.6 million in commercial real estate loans, $87.2 million in residential loans, $26.2 million in construction loans and $15.0 million in consumer and other loans.  Our originations reflect our continued focus on diversifying our loan portfolio.  Our loans are primarily on properties and businesses located in New Jersey and New York.

In addition to the loans originated for our portfolio, we originated residential mortgage loans for sale to third parties totaling $90.7 million during the three months ended March 31, 2020.

The allowance for loan losses increased by $15.2 million to $243.3 million at March 31, 2020 from $228.1 million at December 31, 2019.  The increase of $15.2 million reflects a decrease of $3.6 million upon CECL adoption, a decrease of $8.0 million resulting from net charge-offs and an increase of $26.8 million from the provision for credit losses related to our loan portfolio.  Our allowance for loan losses was significantly impacted by the adoption of CECL and the impact of COVID-19 on current and forecasted economic conditions.  Future increases in the allowance for loan losses may be necessary based on the growth and composition of the loan portfolio, the level of loan delinquency and the reasonable and supportable forecasted economic conditions over the life of our loans.  At March 31, 2020, our allowance for loan losses as a percent of total loans was 1.14%, an increase from 1.05% at December 31, 2019 which was driven by the factors noted above.

Securities decreased by $157.1 million, or 4.1%, to $3.7 billion at March 31, 2020 from $3.9 billion at December 31, 2019.  This decrease was primarily a result of paydowns, partially offset by purchases and an increase in unrealized gains.  At March 31, 2020, our allowance for credit losses on held-to-maturity debt securities was $3.0 million.

Deposits increased by $324.3 million, or 1.8%, to $18.2 billion at March 31, 2020 from $17.9 billion at December 31, 2019 primarily driven by increases in money market accounts and time deposits, partially offset by decreases in checking accounts.  Checking accounts decreased $127.3 million to $7.9 billion at March 31, 2020 from $8.0 billion at December 31, 2019.  Core deposits (savings, checking and money market) represented approximately 77% of our total deposit portfolio at March 31, 2020 compared to 78% at December 31, 2019.

Borrowed funds decreased by $360.4 million, or 6.2%, to $5.5 billion at March 31, 2020 from $5.8 billion at December 31, 2019 primarily driven by the increase in deposits.

Other liabilities increased by $18.2 million, or 22.2%, to $100.0 million at March 31, 2020 from $81.8 million at December 31, 2019 primarily driven by our allowance for credit losses on unfunded commitments resulting from the adoption of CECL.  At March 31, 2020, our allowance for credit losses on unfunded commitments was $17.1 million.

Stockholders' equity decreased by $27.2 million to $2.6 billion at March 31, 2020 from $2.6 billion at December 31, 2019, primarily attributed to other comprehensive loss of $32.8 million and cash dividends of $0.12 per share totaling $29.7 million during the three months ended March 31, 2020. In addition, stockholders' equity decreased by $8.5 million on January 1, 2020 in connection with the adoption of CECL.  These decreases were partially offset by net income of $39.5 million and share-based plan activity of $5.2 million for the three months ended March 31, 2020.  The Company remains above the FDIC's "well capitalized" standards, with a Common Equity Tier 1 Risk-Based Ratio of 13.05% at March 31, 2020.

We believe that providing certain non-GAAP financial measures provides investors with information useful in understanding our financial performance, our performance trends and financial position.  We utilize these measures for internal planning and forecasting purposes.  We believe that our presentation and discussion, together with the accompanying reconciliations, provides a complete understanding of factors and trends affecting our business and allows investors to view performance in a manner similar to management.  These non-GAAP measures should not be considered a substitute for GAAP basis measures and results, and we strongly encourage investors to review our consolidated financial statements in their entirety and not to rely on any single financial measure.  Because non-GAAP financial measures are not standardized, it may not be possible to compare these financial measures with other companies' non-GAAP financial measures having the same or similar names.

(1) Allowance for credit losses includes allowance for loan losses and allowance for losses on unfunded commitments.

(2) Capital ratios are estimated.  In accordance with regulatory capital rules, the Company elected an option to delay the estimated impact of CECL on its regulatory capital over a five-year transition period ending December 31, 2024.  As a result, capital ratios as of March 31, 2020 exclude the impact of the increased allowance for credit losses on loans, unfunded commitments and held-to-maturity debt securities attributed to the adoption of CECL.

(3) See Non-GAAP Reconciliation.
