Eagle Bancorp, Inc. Announces $15.6 Million in Earnings With a Continuing Trend of Record Operating Earnings of $30.2 Million for the Fourth Quarter 2017

Company Release - 1/17/2018 10:04 PM ET

BETHESDA, Md., Jan. 17, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Eagle Bancorp, Inc. (the “Company”) (NASDAQ:EGBN), the parent company of EagleBank, today announced quarterly net income of $15.6 million ($30.2 million on an operating basis) for the three months ended December 31, 2017, a 39% decrease on a net income basis (and a 17% increase on an operating basis) over the $25.7 million net income for the three months ended December 31, 2016. Quarterly income on an operating basis continued a 36 quarter trend of record earnings.

For the fourth quarter and full year 2017, operating earnings exclude one time charges to reduce the carrying value of deferred tax assets by $14.6 million, required as a result of the reduction in corporate income tax rates to 21% in the Tax Cuts and Jobs act of 2017 (“Tax Reform”). Tax Reform was enacted in late December and is further discussed below. Where appropriate, parenthetical references refer to operating earnings, which the Company believes are more relevant comparisons to prior period results of operations. Reconciliations of GAAP earnings to operating earnings are contained in the tables that follow.

Net income for the three months ended December 31, 2017 was $0.46 per basic and $0.45 per diluted common share ($0.88 per basic and diluted common share on an operating basis), as compared to $0.76 per basic common share and $0.75 per diluted common share for the same period in 2016.

For the year ended December 31, 2017, the Company’s net income was $100.2 million ($114.8 million on an operating basis), a 3% increase (18% increase on an operating basis) over the $97.7 million for the year ended December 31, 2016.

Net income was $2.94 per basic common share and $2.92 per diluted common share for the year ended December 31, 2017 ($3.36 per basic common share and $3.35 per diluted common share on an operating basis), as compared to $2.91 per basic common share and $2.86 per diluted common share for 2016.

“We are very pleased to report a continued trend of balanced and consistently strong financial performance,” noted Ronald D. Paul, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Eagle Bancorp, Inc. “Our net income in the fourth quarter (excluding the adjustment reflecting the impact of Tax Reform) represents 36 consecutive quarters of increasing operating earnings dating back to the first quarter of 2009. This strong financial performance has resulted from a combination of steady average balance sheet growth and related revenue growth, coupled with a strong net interest margin. Additionally, we have sustained very solid asset quality over an extended period along with favorable operating leverage.” Loan balances increased 5% in the fourth quarter while deposit balances decreased by 1% from September 30, 2017. Mr. Paul added, “While we experienced declines in deposit balances late in 2017, we consider average balances more indicative of our growth performance, since maintaining favorable averages translates to improved revenue. During the fourth quarter of 2017, average deposits increased 5% over the third quarter and average loans increased 4%. Average growth in our balance sheet combined with a continuing favorable net interest margin contributed to revenue growth increases of 15% in the fourth quarter 2017 over the fourth quarter of 2016 and by 8% over the third quarter of 2017. For the full year 2017 over 2016, revenue growth was 10%. The net interest margin in the fourth quarter was stable at 4.13% and favorable as compared to peer banking companies. The loan pipeline remains strong, and the yield on the loan portfolio in the fourth quarter was 2 basis points higher at 5.21% versus 5.19% for the third quarter, as the Company’s loan portfolio yield continues to benefit from both higher general market interest rates and disciplined loan pricing. Importantly, our credit quality remained very strong in the fourth quarter as the level of nonperforming assets was just 0.19% of total assets at December 31, 2017. Mr. Paul added, “the Company’s operating efficiency, another key driver of financial performance, improved even further in the fourth quarter from  a strong position. Noninterest expense  in the fourth quarter of 2017 was less than 1% over the same period in 2016 while total revenue increased by 15% resulting in a continued favorable efficiency ratio.” For the fourth quarter in 2017, the efficiency ratio was 35.12%, as compared to 37.49% in the third quarter of 2017 and 40.22% for the fourth quarter of 2016. Mr. Paul added, “The Company remains committed to cost management measures and strong productivity.”

Pre-tax, pre-provision income was $55.1 million for the fourth quarter of 2017 a 24% increase over $44.3 million for the fourth quarter of 2016 and a 12% increase over the $49.2 million for the third quarter of 2017.

The annualized return on average assets (“ROAA”) was 0.82% (1.60% on an operating basis) for the fourth quarter of 2017 and 1.41% (1.62% on an operating basis) for the twelve months ended December 31, 2017. The annualized return on average common equity (“ROACE”) was 6.49% (12.57% on an operating basis) for the fourth quarter of 2017 and 11.06% (12.67% on an operating basis) for the year ended December 31, 2017.

For the full year 2017, loans grew 13% and averaged 11% higher. For the full year 2017, deposits increased 2% and averaged 8% higher. For the full year 2017, total revenue increased by 10% while total noninterest expenses increased 3%.

Pre-tax, pre-provision income was $194.7 million for the full year 2017 as compared to $170.4 million for the full year 2016, a 14% increase.

For the fourth quarter of 2017, the net interest margin was 4.13%, as compared to 4.14% for the third quarter of 2017 and 3.95% for the fourth quarter of 2016. The average liquidity position was higher in the fourth quarter due to higher average deposit growth than loan growth and contributed to the 1 basis point decline in the net interest margin quarter over quarter.

For the full year of 2017, the net interest margin was 4.15% as compared to 4.16% for the year ended December 31, 2016. Higher short and intermediate term market interest rates during 2017 resulted in higher yields on loans and investments and higher funding costs. These interest rate moves also validated the Company’s strategy of balanced interest rate risk management. Mr. Paul noted, “In the current environment, the Company has continued its emphasis on disciplined pricing for both new loans and funding sources, which has resulted in the Company maintaining a superior net interest margin.”

Asset quality measures improved further in the fourth quarter of 2017 from an already solid position. At December 31, 2017, the Company’s nonperforming loans amounted to $13.2 million (0.21% of total loans) as compared to $16.6 million (0.27% of total loans) at September 30, 2017 and $17.9 million (0.31% of total loans) at December 31, 2016. Nonperforming assets amounted to $14.6 million (0.19% of total assets) at December 31, 2017 compared to $18.0 million (0.24% of total assets) at September 30, 2017 and $20.6 million (0.30% of total assets) at December 31, 2016. For the year of 2017, the Company recorded net charge-offs of $3.3 million (0.06% of average loans), as compared to net charge-offs of $4.9 million (0.09% of average loans) for the year of 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. Furthermore, the Company is diligent in placing loans on nonaccrual status and believes, based on its loan portfolio risk analysis, that its December 31, 2017 allowance for credit losses, at 1.01% of total loans (excluding loans held for sale), is adequate to absorb potential credit losses within the loan portfolio as of the end of the year. The allowance for credit losses was 1.03% of total loans at September 30, 2017 and 1.04% at December 31, 2016. The allowance for credit losses represented 489% of nonperforming loans at December 31, 2017.

Total assets at December 31, 2017 were $7.48 billion, a 1% increase as compared to $7.39 billion at September 30, 2017, and a 9% increase as compared to $6.89 billion at December 31, 2016. Total loans (excluding loans held for sale) were $6.41 billion at December 31, 2017, a 5% increase as compared to $6.08 billion at September 30, 2017, and a 13% increase as compared to $5.68 billion at December 31, 2016. Loans held for sale amounted to $25.1 million at December 31, 2017 as compared to $26.0 million at September 30, 2017, a 3% decrease, and $51.6 million at December 31, 2016, a 51% decrease. The investment portfolio totaled $589.3 million at December 31, 2017, a 6% increase from the $556.0 million balance at September 30, 2017. As compared to December 31, 2016, the investment portfolio at December 31, 2017 increased by $51.2 million or 10%.

Total deposits at December 31, 2017 were $5.85 billion, compared to deposits of $5.91 billion at September 30, 2017, a 1% decrease, and deposits of $5.72 billion at December 31, 2016, a 2% increase. Total borrowed funds (excluding customer repurchase agreements) were $541.9 million at December 31, 2017, $416.8 million at September 30, 2017 and $216.5 million at December 31, 2016.

Total shareholders’ equity at December 31, 2017 increased 2%, to $950.4 million, compared to $934.0 million at September 30, 2017, and increased 13%, from $842.8 million at December 31, 2016. Growth in retained earnings has enhanced the Company’s capital position well in excess of regulatory requirements for well capitalized status. The total risk based capital ratio was 15.02% at December 31, 2017, as compared to 15.30% at September 30, 2017, and 14.89% at December 31, 2016. In addition, the tangible common equity ratio was 11.45% at December 31, 2017, compared to 11.35% at September 30, 2017 and 10.84% at December 31, 2016.

Referring to the impact of the new corporate income tax law as highlighted above; while the Company’s earnings beginning in 2018 will benefit from the lower corporate income tax marginal rates in the new legislation (The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act), companies are required to revalue their deferred tax positions at December 31, 2017 at the lower federal income tax rates. Since the new law was enacted on December 22, 2017, this revaluation is accounted for in the fourth quarter of 2017 through adjustments to Income tax expense on the Consolidated Statements of Income. The Company’s net deferred tax asset position revaluation is attributable primarily to the timing difference created by the allowance for loan losses being  deductible at the lower U.S. corporate income tax rate beginning in 2018, as opposed to the higher rates in effect through December 31, 2017.

This adjustment increased Income tax expense for the fourth quarter of 2017 and full year 2017 by $14.6 million ($0.42 per basic and $0.43 per diluted share). As a result of reduced rates, the Company expects to incur substantially reduced income tax expense in future periods. Excluding the discrete adjustment for deferred tax assets, the effective tax rate in the fourth quarter of 2017 was 40.8%. The higher effective rate was due to the annual reconciliation of tax accounts following completion and filing of the 2016 income tax returns.    

Analysis of the three months ended December 31, 2017 compared to December 31, 2016

For the three months ended December 31, 2017, the Company reported an annualized ROAA of 0.82% (1.60% on an operating basis) as compared to 1.46% for the three months ended December 31, 2016. The annualized ROACE for the three months ended December 31, 2017 was 6.49% (12.57% on an operating basis), as compared to 12.26% for the three months ended December 31, 2016. 

Net interest income increased 12% for the three months ended December 31, 2017 over the same period in 2016 ($75.4 million versus $67.0 million), resulting from growth in average earning assets of 7% and an 18 basis point expansion of the net interest margin. The net interest margin was 4.13% for the three months ended December 31, 2017, as compared to 3.95% for the three months ended December 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 to a 5.21% yield for the fourth quarter of 2017 has been a significant factor in its overall profitability.

The provision for credit losses was $4.1 million for the three months ended December 31, 2017 as compared to $2.1 million for the three months ended December 31, 2016. The higher provisioning in the fourth quarter of 2017, as compared to the fourth quarter of 2016, is primarily due to higher loan growth ($327.3 million vs. $196.0 million) and higher net charge-offs. Net charge-offs of $2.3 million in the fourth quarter of 2017 represented an annualized 0.15% of average loans, excluding loans held for sale, as compared to a net recovery of $97 thousand, or an annualized 0.01% of average loans, excluding loans held for sale, in the fourth quarter of 2016. Net charge-offs in the fourth quarter of 2017 were attributable primarily to net charge-offs in construction - commercial and residential ($2.1 million).

Noninterest income for the three months ended December 31, 2017 increased to $9.5 million from $7.0 million for the three months ended December 31, 2016, due substantially to a $1.2 million nonrecurring adjustment to a tax credit investment resulting from the reversal of excess write downs in prior years. The FHA business unit generated  income of $948 thousand on the origination, securitization, servicing and sale of FHA Multifamily-Backed GNMA securities in the fourth quarter of 2017. The residential mortgage unit had  lower sales  and  resulting gains on the sale of these loans in the fourth quarter of 2017 (gains of $2.3 million for the fourth quarter of 2017 versus $3.1 million for the same period in 2016). Residential mortgage loans closed were $136 million for the fourth quarter in 2017 versus $241 million for the fourth quarter of 2016. There was no income related to FHA Multifamily-Backed GNMA securities in the fourth quarter of 2016. The SBA business unit generated  $893 thousand in revenue during the fourth quarter of 2017 compared to $356 thousand for the same period in 2016 from sales of the guaranteed portion on SBA loans. There were no gains or losses on investment transactions in the fourth quarter of 2017 as compared to a modest gain of $71 thousand in the fourth quarter of 2016.      

The efficiency ratio, which measures the ratio of noninterest expense to total revenue, was 35.12% for the fourth quarter of 2017, as compared to 40.22% for the fourth quarter of 2016. Noninterest expenses totaled $29.8 million for the three months ended December 31, 2017, as compared to $29.8 million for the three months ended December 31, 2016. Salaries and employee benefits expenses decreased  $1.2 million in the fourth quarter of 2017 as compared to  the fourth quarter of 2016, due to lower stock based and incentive compensation accruals and lower health care costs, partially offset by higher salaries.  Premises and equipment expenses increased by $320 thousand primarily due to rent and other occupancy cost increases as well as cost increases associated with the expansion of our IT infrastructure. Marketing and advertising expenses increased $278 thousand primarily due to costs associated with digital and print advertising and sponsorships. Data processing costs increased by $132 thousand primarily due to increased vendor fees. Legal, accounting, and professional fees increased by $686 thousand due substantially to consulting services, a portion of which relates to recent short-sale stock activity.

The effective tax rate was substantially higher (69.5%) for the fourth quarter 2017 as compared to 39.0% for the same period in 2016 due primarily to tax rate changes earlier discussed ($14.6 million deferred tax asset adjustment through tax expense). Excluding this charge, the effective tax rate for the fourth quarter was 40.8%, elevated from prior quarters due to annual tax account reconciliation as earlier discussed.

Analysis of the year ended December 31, 2017 compared to December 31, 2016

For the year ended December 31, 2017, the Company reported an annualized ROAA of 1.41% (1.62% on an operating basis) as compared to 1.52% for the year ended December 31, 2016. The annualized ROACE for the year ended December 31, 2017 was 11.06% (12.67% on an operating basis), as compared to 12.27% for the year ended December 31, 2016.

Net interest income increased 10% for the year ended December 31, 2017 over the same period in 2016 ($283.9 million versus $258.2 million), resulting from growth in average earning assets of 10%. The net interest margin was 4.15% for the year ended December 31, 2017 as compared to 4.16% for the same period in 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 5.17% for the full year of 2017 has been a significant factor in its overall profitability. Additionally, the percentage of average noninterest bearing deposits to total deposits was 33% for the full year of 2017 versus 30% for the same period in 2016.

The provision for credit losses was $9.0 million for the year ended December 31, 2017 as compared to $11.3 million for the year ended December 31, 2016. The lower provisioning during 2017, as compared to 2016, is due to lower net-charge-offs. Net charge-offs of $3.3 million during 2017 represented an annualized 0.06% of average loans, excluding loans held for sale, as compared to $4.9 million or an annualized 0.09% of average loans, excluding loans held for sale, in 2016. Net charge-offs during 2017 were attributable primarily to construction - commercial and residential ($1.7 million) and commercial real estate loans ($1.4 million).

Noninterest income for the year ended December 31, 2017 was $29.4 million as compared to $27.3 million for the year ended December 31, 2016, an 8% increase. This increase was primarily due to revenue associated with the origination, securitization, servicing, and sale of FHA Multifamily-Backed GNMA securities of $2.5 million together with a $1.2 million nonrecurring adjustment to a tax credit investment balance resulting from the reversal of excess write downs in prior years. These increases were partially offset by fewer sales and related gain on sales of both SBA loans ($808 thousand) and residential mortgage loans ($2.0 million). Noninterest income was $28.8 million for the year ended December 31, 2017, as compared to $26.1 million for the same period in 2016, excluding gains on sales of investment securities, an 11% increase.

Noninterest expenses totaled $118.6 million for the year ended December 31, 2017, as compared to $115.0 million for the year ended December 31, 2016, a 3% increase. Cost increases for salaries and benefits were modest due to new hires and merit increases, which were effectively offset by decreases in employee benefit costs due to the prior year acceleration of restricted stock awards, lower incentive compensation accruals and lower health care costs. Marketing and advertising increased by $600 thousand due primarily to increased digital and print advertising spend. Data processing increased by $473 thousand due primarily to increased vendor fees associated with higher volumes and rates. Legal, accounting and professional fees increased by $1.4 million primarily due to consulting services and enhanced IT risk management. Other expenses increased $614 thousand  due to numerous factors. For 2017, the efficiency ratio was 37.84% as compared to 40.29% for the same period in 2016.

(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.
