  • Independent Bank Corporation Reports 2020 First Quarter Results
    Company Release - 04/30/2020 07:59

    GRAND RAPIDS, Mich., April 30, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Before summarizing the financial results for the quarter we want to take a moment to recognize that the COVID-19 pandemic has brought significant hardship to many of our customers and communities in so many ways. That is especially true for those who have been infected by the virus and suffered through the health issues that it has caused.  Our thoughts are with those who have been directly impacted, and we extend our appreciation to those who have aided and supported them.

    Independent Bank Corporation (NASDAQ: IBCP) continues to respond to the challenges of the current environment. Our response was formulated throughout the month of February as we prepared our infrastructure to allow the majority of our staff to work remotely.  On Mar. 3rd we activated our Business Continuity plan to protect our customers, employees and business.  We will continue to take the necessary steps to serve our communities while doing our part to minimize the spread of COVID-19.  The following is a brief description of our current initiatives:

    • Customer Safety and Service Levels:  Beginning Mar. 17th we limited our branch lobbies to appointment only and have kept drive through windows open.  With the ability to use drive through service, ATMs or our electronic banking solutions there has been minimal disruption to customers.  In addition, our flexible operating network has allowed us to efficiently redeploy our associates to high volume areas to fulfill customer requests into our call center, requests for consumer and commercial loan payment relief and mortgage financing requests.
    • Employee Safety:  For employees that need to remain in the branch servicing our customers, in addition to closing the branch lobbies, we have expanded sick and vacation time.  All non-branch employees either have the option, or are required to work remotely.  We currently have approximately 80% of our non-branch staff working remotely every day.  Prospectively, as our markets move out of the “Stay Home, Stay Safe” executive orders, we are installing “customer friendly” plastic shields throughout our delivery network to put both customers and staff at ease.
    • Loan Forbearances:  We take pride in being supportive of our customers and communities and have forbearance programs in place and available for those experiencing financial difficulty.  Through Apr. 17th, we’ve granted deferrals to 151 commercial customers with $129.3 million in loans, 605 retail customers with $76.6 million in portfolio loans, and 807 customers with $118.5 million within our book of  mortgage loans we service for others.  The forbearance terms are flexible enough to meet the specific needs of each customer, while protecting the safety and soundness of the Bank.
    • Payroll Protection Program:  Our response, and focus on this vital program, shows our commitment to the communities we serve. We have built an effective process to manage the high volume of applications that we’re receiving.  Customer demand for this program has been extraordinary.  Through Apr. 17th we had received 1,473 applications for $238.2 million in loan requests with 786 applications for $171.8 million accepted by the Small Business Administration (“SBA”) prior to depletion of the initial funding on Apr. 16th.  We anticipate continuing this program as additional funding is allocated to the SBA and becomes available.

    IBCP reported first quarter 2020 net income of $4.8 million, or $0.21 per diluted share, versus net income of $9.4 million, or $0.39 per diluted share, in the prior-year period. 

    Significant items impacting comparable first quarter 2020 and 2019 results include the following:

    • Provision for loan losses of $6.7 million ($0.24 per diluted share, after taxes) in the first quarter of 2020 due in part to the impact of COVID-19 protective measures on unemployment and economic activity as compared to $0.7 million ($0.02 per diluted share, after taxes) in the first quarter of 2019. The provision for loan losses, and the allowance for loan losses, were calculated under our existing incurred methodology. As permitted under section 4014 of the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (“CARES”) Act, we have chosen to delay the implementation of Accounting Standards Update No. 2016-13, Measurement of Credit Losses on Financial Instruments or “CECL.”  This will be discussed further during our first quarter 2020 earnings conference call.
    • A change in the fair value due to price of capitalized mortgage loan servicing rights (the “MSR Change”) of a negative $5.9 million ($0.21 per diluted share, after taxes) as compared to a negative MSR Change of $2.2 million ($0.07 per diluted share, after taxes) for the first quarters of 2020 and 2019, respectively.

    The first quarter of 2020 was highlighted by:

    • Pre-tax, pre-provision income was $12.5 million in the first quarter of 2020 compared to $12.2 million in the first quarter of 2019 ($18.4 million vs $14.4 million excluding the MSR Change for the same respective periods);
    • Growth in gains on mortgage loans of $5.2 million, or 144.8%, compared to the year ago quarter;
    • Net growth in total deposits, excluding brokered deposits, of $81.8 million, or 11.6% annualized;
    • The payment of a 20 cent per share dividend on February 14, 2020.

    William B. (“Brad”) Kessel, the President and Chief Executive Officer of Independent Bank Corporation, commented:  “Amidst the extraordinary volatility in interest rates and uncertainty around the economic impact of COVID-19,  we were pleased with our first quarter results. The gains on mortgage loans more than offset the negative MSR Change and our provision for loan losses increased significantly due to the economic environment, while our core operating results were relatively stable.  We will continue to focus on the needs of our customers and communities, while preserving the value of our franchise.”

    Operating Results

    The Company’s net interest income totaled $30.2 million during the first quarter of 2020, a decrease of $0.05 million, or 0.2% from the year-ago period, and a decrease of $0.5 million, or 1.7%, from the fourth quarter of 2019. The Company’s tax equivalent net interest income as a percent of average interest-earning assets (the “net interest margin”) was 3.63% during the first quarter of 2020, compared to 3.88% in the year-ago quarter and 3.70% in the fourth quarter of 2019. The year-over-year quarterly decrease in net interest income is due to an increase in average interest-earning assets that was more than offset by a decline in the net interest margin.  Average interest-earning assets were $3.35 billion in the first quarter of 2020 compared to $3.15 billion in the year-ago quarter and $3.32 billion in the fourth quarter of 2019.  The decline in the net interest margin primarily reflects the impact of lower market interest rates.  Accretion of the discount recorded on loans acquired from our acquisition of TCSB Bancorp, Inc. totaled $0.3 million and $0.4 million in the first quarters of 2020 and 2019, respectively. 

    Non-interest income totaled $11.0 million and $10.0 million in the first quarters of 2020 and 2019, respectively. This increase was primarily due to changes in mortgage banking related revenues (net gains on mortgage loans partially offset by a decline in mortgage loan servicing, net), as described below.
                                                                                                                                    
    Net gains on mortgage loans were $8.8 million in the first quarter of 2020, compared to $3.6 million in the year-ago quarter.  Mortgage loan origination volume increased 125.8% to $311.1 million in the first quarter of 2020 compared to $137.8 million in the year ago period reflecting lower market interest rates, which have increased mortgage loan refinance activity.

    Mortgage loan servicing, net, generated a loss of $5.3 million and a loss of $1.2 million in the first quarters of 2020 and 2019, respectively. This activity is summarized in the following table:

     Three Months Ended 
     03/31/202003/31/2019 
    Mortgage loan servicing:(Dollars in thousands)
    Revenue, net$1,673 $1,476  
    Fair value change due to price (5,931) (2,203) 
    Fair value change due to pay-downs (1,042) (488) 
    Total$(5,300)$(1,215) 

    The significant variance in the fair value change due to price relates primarily to the decline in mortgage loan interest rates in the first quarter of 2020.  This decline increased projected prepayment rates for mortgage loans serviced for others, leading to a decrease in fair value due to price.

    Capitalized mortgage loan servicing rights totaled $14.8 million at Mar. 31, 2020 compared to $19.2 million at Dec. 31, 2019.  As of Mar. 31, 2020, the Company serviced approximately $2.68 billion in mortgage loans for others on which servicing rights have been capitalized.

    Non-interest expenses totaled $28.7 million in the first quarter of 2020, compared to $28.0 million in the year-ago period. 

    The Company recorded an income tax expense of $0.9 million and $2.2 million in the first quarters of 2020 and 2019, respectively.   The decrease in income tax expense is primarily due to lower pre-tax earnings in the first quarter of 2020.     

    Asset Quality

    A breakdown of non-performing loans(1) by loan type is as follows:

    Loan Type3/31/202012/31/20193/31/2019
     (Dollars in thousands)
    Commercial$9,094 $1,377 $1,705 
    Consumer/installment 691  805  1,028 
    Mortgage 7,669  7,996  6,116 
    Total non-accrual loans 17,454  10,178  8,849 
    Less – government guaranteed loans 676  646  617 
    Total non-performing loans$16,778 $9,532 $8,232 
    Ratio of non-performing loans to total portfolio loans 0.62% 0.35% 0.31%
    Ratio of non-performing assets to total assets 0.50% 0.32% 0.28%
    Ratio of the allowance for loan losses to non-performing loans 193.68% 274.32% 306.78%

    (1)     Excludes loans that are classified as “troubled debt restructured” that are still performing.

    Non-performing loans increased by $7.2 million since year-end 2019 due to an increase in non-performing commercial loans.  The increase in non-performing commercial loans primarily reflects the impact of a specific loan relationship that was in watch credit status at December 31, 2019.  Other real estate and repossessed assets totaled $1.5 million at Mar. 31, 2020 and $1.9 million at Dec. 31, 2019. 

    The provision for loan losses was an expense of $6.7 million and $0.7 million in the first quarters of 2020 and 2019, respectively.  Included in the first quarter 2020 provision for loan losses is a $4.9 million increase in the qualitative reserve.  The level of the provision for loan losses in each period reflects the Company’s overall assessment of the allowance for loan losses, taking into consideration factors such as loan mix, levels of non-performing and classified loans, loan net charge-offs and changes in economic conditions.  The Company recorded loan net charge offs of $0.4 million and $0.3 million in the first quarters of 2020 and 2019, respectively.  At Mar. 31, 2020, the allowance for loan losses totaled $32.5 million, or 1.20% of portfolio loans, compared to $26.1 million, or 0.96% of portfolio loans at Dec. 31, 2019 (1.25% and 1.01% of portfolio loans when excluding the remaining TCSB acquired loan balances for each period, respectively).

    Balance Sheet, Liquidity and Capital

    Total assets were $3.63 billion at Mar. 31, 2020, an increase of $67.7 million from Dec. 31, 2019, primarily reflecting an increase in securities available for sale partially offset by a decline in loans.  Loans, excluding loans held for sale, were $2.72 billion at Mar. 31, 2020, compared to $2.73 billion at Dec. 31, 2019.  Growth in commercial loans of $14.9 million and installment loans of $7.1 million were more than offset by a decline in mortgage loans of $28.9 million, due primarily to a securitization and a sale of $28.7 million of portfolio mortgage loans during the quarter.

    Deposits totaled $3.08 billion at Mar. 31, 2020, an increase of $46.8 million from Dec. 31, 2019.  The increase in deposits is primarily due to growth in demand deposits and reciprocal deposits that were partially offset by a decline in time and brokered time deposits. 

    Cash and cash equivalents totaled $70.3 million at Mar. 31, 2020, versus $65.3 million at Dec. 31, 2019. Securities available for sale totaled $594.3 million at Mar. 31, 2020, compared to $518.4 million at Dec. 31, 2019.

    Total shareholders’ equity was $335.6 million at Mar. 31, 2020, or 9.24% of total assets.  Tangible common equity totaled $302.2 million at Mar. 31, 2020, or $13.81 per share.  The Company’s wholly owned subsidiary, Independent Bank, remains significantly above “well capitalized” for regulatory purposes with the following ratios:

       Well Capitalized
        Minimum
    Regulatory Capital Ratios 3/31/202012/31/2019

    Total capital to risk-weighted assets12.98%12.96%10.00%

    Share Repurchase Plan

    On Dec. 17, 2019, the Board of Directors of the Company authorized the 2020 share repurchase plan.  Under the terms of the 2020 share repurchase plan, the Company is authorized to buy back up to 1,120,000 shares, or approximately 5% of its outstanding common stock.    The repurchase plan is authorized to last through Dec. 31, 2020.  Thus far in 2020, the Company has repurchased 678,929 shares at a weighted average price of $20.30 per share. Share repurchase activity ceased on March 16, 2020, and is on hold at this time.

    Independent Bank Corporation believes non-GAAP measures are meaningful because they reflect adjustments commonly made by management, investors, regulators and analysts to evaluate the adequacy of common equity and performance trends.  Tangible common equity is used by the Company to measure the quality of capital.
