Eagle Bancorp, Inc. Announces 16% Increase in Net Income for First Quarter of 2017 Over 2016 and Total Assets Exceeding $7 Billion

Company Release - 4/18/2017 4:22 PM ET

BETHESDA, Md., April 18, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Eagle Bancorp, Inc. (the “Company”) (NASDAQ:EGBN), the parent company of EagleBank, today announced record quarterly net income of $27.0 million for the three months ended March 31, 2017, (basic and diluted earnings per common share of $0.79) a 16% increase over the $23.3 million net income (basic and diluted earnings per common share of $0.70 and $0.68 respectively) for the three months ended March 31, 2016. GAAP net income for the first quarter of 2017 includes a tax benefit associated with new accounting guidance relating to share-based compensation.

Excluding the accounting change described below, net income was $26.5 million for the three months ended March 31, 2017, a 14% increase over the $23.3 million net income for the three months ended March 31, 2016.

Excluding the accounting change, net income per basic common share for the three months ended March 31, 2017 was $0.78 compared to $0.70 for the same period in 2016, an 11% increase and net income per diluted common share for the three months ended March 31, 2017 was $0.77 compared to $0.68 for the same period in 2016, a 13% increase.

“We are very pleased to report our thirty-third consecutive quarter of record earnings, which continued to exhibit positive trends of balance sheet growth, revenue growth, solid asset quality and favorable operating leverage,” noted Ronald D. Paul, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Eagle Bancorp, Inc. Mr. Paul added, “in addition to quarterly earnings having increased for each quarter since the fourth quarter of 2008, the Company surpassed $7.0 billion in total assets in the quarter.”

The Company’s performance in the first quarter of 2017 as compared to the first quarter of 2016 was highlighted by growth in total loans of 13% and in total deposits of 12%; by 6% growth in total revenue; by an annualized net charge-off ratio to average loans of 0.04%; by a low level of nonperforming assets to total assets of 0.22% and by further improvement in operating leverage from an already favorable position. For the first quarter in 2017, the efficiency ratio was 40.06%. Mr. Paul added, “at a time when the net interest margins of banks are being challenged given the continuing low interest rate environment, the Company remains committed to emphasizing favorable cost management measures and strong productivity.” The record first quarter earnings resulted in an annualized return on average assets (“ROAA”) of 1.62% (1.59% excluding the accounting change) and an annualized return on average common equity (“ROACE”) of 12.74% (12.51% excluding the accounting change).

In the first quarter of 2017, total loans grew 2.6% over December 31, 2016, and total deposits increased 1.3% over December 31, 2016. Mr. Paul noted, “while both loan and deposit growth experienced seasonally lower growth in the first quarter, the pipeline of loan commitments and new relationship opportunities remains strong. Additionally, the mix of noninterest deposits to total deposits averaged over 32% in the first quarter of 2017.”

The net interest margin was 4.14% for the first quarter of 2017, up 18 basis points from the fourth quarter of 2016 and was due substantially to a higher loan mix, coupled with higher loan yields. As compared to the first quarter in 2016, the net interest margin was 17 basis points lower. Mr. Paul noted, “while we are seeing a higher cost of funds we are also experiencing improved loan yields.” The Company’s net interest income increased 7% in the first quarter of 2017 over 2016 as the Company continues to see good lending opportunities and has continued its emphasis on disciplined pricing for both new loans and funding sources.  The Company believes that it has a superior net interest margin compared to peers, but it is also focused on all factors that contribute to Earnings Per Share (“EPS”) growth.

Total revenue (net interest income plus noninterest income) for the first quarter of 2017 was $73.0 million, or 6% above the $68.9 million of total revenue earned for the first quarter of 2016 and was just 1% below the $74.0 million of revenue earned in the fourth quarter of 2016 due to a lower average balance sheet.

The primary driver of revenue growth for the first quarter of 2017 as compared to the first quarter in 2016 was net interest income growth ($66.9 million versus $62.6 million). Noninterest income declined by 4% in the first quarter 2017 compared to the same period in 2016, due substantially to an OREO net gain of $573 thousand recorded in the first quarter of 2016. Excluding this net gain and gains on sales of investment securities, core noninterest income was $5.6 million in the first quarter of 2017 as compared to $5.1 million for the first quarter of 2016, an increase of 9%. The core increase was attributable to increased gains on sale of residential real estate loans.

During the first quarter of 2017, the Company adopted new accounting guidance for share-based transactions. That guidance requires that all excess tax benefits and tax deficiencies associated with share-based compensation be recognized as income tax expense or benefits in the income statement. Previously, tax effects resulting from changes in EGBN’s stock price subsequent to the grant date were recorded directly to shareholders’ equity at the time of vesting or exercise. The adoption of this new standard (ASU 2016-09) resulted in a $589 thousand, or $0.02 per share, reduction to income tax expense in the first quarter of 2017.

While the Company’s primary focus continues to be on generating spread income, management also looks to residential mortgage banking as well as Small Business Administration (“SBA”) loan activity as components of the Company’s ongoing noninterest income growth opportunities. For the first quarter of 2017, gains on the sale of residential mortgage loans were $2.0 million as compared to $1.2 million for the first quarter of 2016. Sales of SBA guaranteed loans resulted in modest gains of $57 thousand on sales for the first quarter of 2017 versus $243 thousand for the same period in 2016. Quarter to quarter volatility in SBA activity continues. The Company remains committed to this line of business.

Asset quality measures remained solid at March 31, 2017. Net charge-offs (annualized) were 0.04% of average loans for the first quarter of 2017, as compared to 0.09% of average loans for the first quarter of 2016. At March 31, 2017, the Company’s nonperforming loans amounted to $14.4 million (0.25% of total loans) as compared to $21.9 million (0.43% of total loans) at March 31, 2016 and $17.9 million (0.31% of total loans) at December 31, 2016. Nonperforming assets amounted to $15.7 million (0.22% of total assets) at March 31, 2017 compared to $25.8 million (0.42% of total assets) at March 31, 2016 and $20.6 million (0.30% of total assets) at December 31, 2016.

Management continues to remain attentive to any signs of deterioration in borrowers’ financial conditions and is proactive in taking the appropriate steps to mitigate risk, including placing loans on nonaccrual status. Based on a thorough risk analysis and consistent application of allowance methodology, management believes, that its allowance for credit losses, at 1.03% of total loans (excluding loans held for sale) at March 31, 2017, is adequate to absorb potential credit losses within the loan portfolio at that date. The allowance for credit losses was 1.06% at March 31, 2016 and 1.04% of total loans at December 31, 2016. The allowance for credit losses represented 417% of nonperforming loans at March 31, 2017, as compared to 249% at March 31, 2016 and 330% at December 31, 2016.

“The Company’s focus on productivity remained quite strong in the quarter,” noted Mr. Paul. The efficiency ratio of 40.06% reflects management’s ongoing efforts to maintain superior operating leverage. The annualized level of noninterest expenses as a percentage of average assets has declined to 1.73% in the first quarter of 2017 as compared to 1.85% in the first quarter of 2016. A high level of revenue per salaried employee, a stable and well positioned branch network and improved use of technology to achieve heightened productivity have been the major reasons for improved operating leverage. The Company’s goal is to maximize operating performance without inhibiting growth or negatively impacting our ability to service our customers. Mr. Paul further noted, “We continue to maintain strict oversight of expenses, while retaining an infrastructure to remain competitive, support our growth initiatives and manage risk.”

Total assets at March 31, 2017 were $7.09 billion, a 16% increase as compared to $6.13 billion at March 31, 2016, and a 3% increase as compared to $6.89 billion at December 31, 2016. Total loans (excluding loans held for sale) were $5.82 billion at March 31, 2017, a 13% increase as compared to $5.16 billion at March 31, 2016, and a 3% increase as compared to $5.68 billion at December 31, 2016. Loans held for sale amounted to $29.6 million at March 31, 2017 as compared to $45.7 million at March 31, 2016, a 35% decrease, and $51.6 million at December 31, 2016, a 43% decrease. The investment portfolio totaled $499.8 million at March 31, 2017, a 3% increase from the $487.6 million balance at March 31, 2016. As compared to December 31, 2016, the investment portfolio at March 31, 2017 decreased by $38.3 million or 7%.

Total deposits at March 31, 2017 were $5.79 billion compared to deposits of $5.19 billion at March 31, 2016, a 12% increase and $5.72 billion at December 31, 2016, a 1% increase. We continue to work on expanding the breadth and depth of our existing relationships while we pursue building new relationships. Total borrowed funds (excluding customer repurchase agreements) were $291.6 million at March 31, 2017, $69.0 million at March 31, 2016 and $216.5 million at December 31, 2016.

Total shareholders’ equity at March 31, 2017 increased 15%, to $873.0 million, compared to $762.5 million at March 31, 2016, and increased 4%, from $842.8 million, at December 31, 2016. The increase in shareholders’ equity at March 31, 2017 compared to the same period in 2016 was primarily the result of retained earnings. The Company’s capital position remains substantially in excess of regulatory requirements for well capitalized status, with a total risk based capital ratio of 14.97% at March 31, 2017, as compared to 12.87% at March 31, 2016, and 14.89% at December 31, 2016. In addition, the tangible common equity ratio was 10.97% at March 31, 2017, compared to 10.86% at March 31, 2016 and 10.84% at December 31, 2016.

For the three months ended March 31, 2017, the Company reported an annualized ROAA of 1.62% (1.59% excluding the accounting change) as compared to 1.54% for the three months ended March 31, 2016. The annualized ROACE for the three months ended March 31, 2017 was 12.74% (12.51% excluding the accounting change), as compared to 12.39% for the three months ended March 31, 2016.

Net interest income increased 7% for the three months ended March 31, 2017 over the same period in 2016 ($66.9 million versus $62.6 million), resulting from growth in average earning assets of 12%. The net interest margin was 4.14% for the three months ended March 31, 2017, as compared to 4.31% for the three months ended March 31, 2016. The Company believes its net interest margin remains favorable compared to peer banking companies and that its disciplined approach to managing the loan portfolio yield to 5.13% for the first quarter in 2017 has been a significant factor in its overall profitability.

The provision for credit losses was $1.4 million for the three months ended March 31, 2017 as compared to $3.0 million for the three months ended March 31, 2016. The lower provisioning in the first quarter of 2017, as compared to the first quarter of 2016, is due to lower net charge-offs and overall improvement in asset quality, coupled with lower loan growth. Net charge-offs of $623 thousand in the first quarter of 2017 represented an annualized 0.04% of average loans, excluding loans held for sale, as compared to $1.1 million, or an annualized 0.09% of average loans, excluding loans held for sale, in the first quarter of 2016. Net charge-offs in the first quarter of 2017 were attributable primarily to commercial real estate-income producing ($450 thousand) and commercial ($123 thousand) loans.

Noninterest income for the three months ended March 31, 2017 decreased to $6.1 million from $6.3 million for the three months ended March 31, 2016, a 4% decrease, primarily due to a net gain on the sale of OREO in the amount of $573 thousand in March 2016. Gain on sale of loans was $2.0 million for the three months ended March 31, 2017 versus $1.5 million for the same period in 2016. Residential mortgage loans closed were $150 million for the first quarter in 2017 versus $132 million for the first quarter of 2016. Net investment gains were $505 thousand for the three months ended March 31, 2017 compared to $624 thousand for the same period in 2016.

The efficiency ratio, which measures the ratio of noninterest expense to total revenue, was 40.06% for the first quarter of 2017, as compared to 40.80% for the first quarter of 2016. Noninterest expenses totaled $29.2 million for the three months ended March 31, 2017, as compared to $28.1 million for the three months ended March 31, 2016, a 4% increase. Cost increases for salaries and benefits were $558 thousand, due primarily to increased staff and merit increases. Marketing and advertising expense increased by $120 thousand primarily due to costs associated with digital and print advertising and sponsorships. FDIC expenses were $265 thousand lower due to a change to the FDIC insurance premium formula for small institutions effective July 1, 2016.

The effective income tax rate for the first quarter of 2017 was 36.2% (37.6% excluding the accounting change) as compared to 38.2% for the first quarter of 2016 and 39.0% for the fourth quarter of 2016.  Excluding the accounting change, the lower effective rate was due primarily to a lower state income tax apportionment factor.

(1) Tangible common equity to tangible assets (the "tangible common equity ratio") and tangible book value per common share are non-GAAP financial measures derived from GAAP based amounts. The Company calculates the tangible common equity ratio by excluding the balance of intangible assets from common shareholders' equity and dividing by tangible assets. The Company calculates tangible book value per common share by dividing tangible common equity by common shares outstanding, as compared to book value per common share, which the Company calculates by dividing common shareholders' equity by common shares outstanding. The Company considers this information important to shareholders as tangible equity is a measure that is consistent with the calculation of capital for bank regulatory purposes, which excludes intangible assets from the calculation of risk based ratios and as such is useful for investors, regulators, management and others to evaluate capital adequacy and to compare against other financial institutions. The table below provides a reconciliation of these non-GAAP financial measures with financial measures defined by GAAP.

(1) Tangible common equity to tangible assets (the "tangible common equity ratio") and tangible book value per common share are non-GAAP financial measures derived from GAAP based amounts. The Company calculates the tangible common equity ratio by excluding the balance of intangible assets from common shareholders' equity and dividing by tangible assets. The Company calculates tangible book value per common share by dividing tangible common equity by common shares outstanding, as compared to book value per common share, which the Company calculates by dividing common shareholders' equity by common shares outstanding. The Company considers this information important to shareholders as tangible equity is a measure that is consistent with the calculation of capital for bank regulatory purposes, which excludes intangible assets from the calculation of risk based ratios and as such is useful for investors, regulators, management and others to evaluate capital adequacy and to compare against other financial institutions. 
(2) Computed by dividing noninterest expense by the sum of net interest income and noninterest income.   
(3) Excludes loans held for sale.
