Jan 29, 2019

0 Message : Fourth Quarter 2018 Summary Net income of $39.6 million, or $0.63 per diluted share, which includes $2.6 million of merger-related expense Return on average assets of 1.37%, return on average equity of 8.15%, and return on average tangible common equity of 16.65% Efficiency ratio of 48.3% Net interest margin of 4.49%, core net interest margin of 4.24% Cost of deposits of 0.55% in the current quarter compared with 0.54% in the prior quarter Nonperforming assets as a percent of total assets of 0.04% Completed the client account and system conversion of Grandpoint Capital, Inc. Pacific Premier Bancorp, Inc. (NASDAQ: PPBI) (the “Company”), the holding company of Pacific Premier Bank (the “Bank”), reported net income for the fourth quarter of 2018 of $39.6 million, or $0.63 per diluted share, compared with net income of $28.4 million, or $0.46 per diluted share, for the third quarter of 2018 and net income of $16.2 million, or $0.36 per diluted share, for the fourth quarter of 2017. Net income for the fourth quarter of 2018 includes $2.6 million of merger-related expense associated with the acquisition of Grandpoint Capital, Inc (“Grandpoint”), which was effective as of July 1, 2018. For the three months ended December 31, 2018, the Company’s return on average assets (“ROAA”) was 1.37%, return on average equity (“ROAE”) was 8.15%, and return on average tangible common equity (“ROATCE”) was 16.65% as compared to 1.00%, 5.95%, and 12.89%, respectively, for the three months ended September 30, 2018 and 0.87%, 5.57%, and 10.48%, respectively, for the three months ended December 31, 2017. Total assets as of December 31, 2018 were $11.5 billion compared with $11.5 billion at September 30, 2018 and $8.0 billion at December 31, 2017. A reconciliation of the non-U.S. GAAP measure of ROATCE to the U.S. GAAP measure of common stockholders' equity is set forth at the end of this press release. Steven R. Gardner, Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer of the Company, commented, “We delivered the highest level of quarterly earnings in our history, driven by the successful integration of Grandpoint and the synergies we anticipated from the transaction. The fourth quarter performance reflects our commitment to earnings growth, expanding client relationships, and effective expense and balance sheet management. “In the fourth quarter, excluding $2.6 million in merger-related expense, we generated an operating ROAA of 1.43% and an operating ROATCE of 17.4%. These strong risk-adjusted returns resulted in strong capital generation that provides us the flexibility to return capital to shareholders while continuing to support our organic and acquisitive growth. Accordingly, we are pleased to announce the initiation of a quarterly cash dividend with an initial targeted payout ratio of 35%, or $0.22 per share based on fourth quarter of 2018 performance. “Our near-term focus will be on driving earnings growth through the further expansion of our commercial client base and capitalizing on the investments in our infrastructure to realize additional operating leverage. Combined with our ability to return capital to shareholders while simultaneously growing and strengthening the franchise, we believe that we are well-positioned to create increased shareholder value going forward,” said Mr. Gardner. FINANCIAL HIGHLIGHTS Net income 16.65 89 $   (1) A reconciliation of the non-U.S. GAAP measures of average tangible common equity and tangible book value per share to the U.S. GAAP measures of common stockholders' equity and book value are set forth at the end of this press release. (2) Represents the ratio of noninterest expense less other real estate owned operations, core deposit intangible amortization and merger-related expense to the sum of net interest income before provision for loan losses and total noninterest income, less gains/(loss) on sale of securities and gain/(loss) on sale of other real estate owned. (3) Core deposits are all transaction accounts and non-brokered certificates of deposits less than $250,000. Net Interest Income and Net Interest Margin Net interest income totaled $117.5 million in the fourth quarter of 2018, an increase of $4.8 million, or 4%, from the third quarter of 2018. The increase in net interest income reflected the impact of higher interest-earning asset balances and yields as well as higher accretion income, partially offset by higher short-term borrowing costs. Net interest margin for the fourth quarter of 2018 was 4.49% compared with 4.38% for the third quarter of 2018. The increase was primarily driven by higher accretion income of $6.3 million compared to $4.1 million in the prior quarter. Our core net interest margin, which excludes the impact of accretion, certificates of deposit mark-to-market amortization and other one-time adjustments, expanded 5 basis points to 4.24%, compared to 4.19% from the prior quarter. The increase in core net interest margin was attributable to a more favorable mix of loans and investments, and the impact of loan repricing as a result of the Federal Reserve Bank's interest rate increase in September, partially offset by higher cost of funds, specifically, higher short-term borrowing costs. Cost of deposits rose 1 basis point to 0.55% during the quarter. We anticipate our core net interest margin will be in the range of 4.15% to 4.25% in the first quarter of 2019. Net interest income for the fourth quarter of 2018 increased $39.4 million or 50% compared to the fourth quarter of 2017. The increase was primarily related to an increase in interest-earning assets of $3.6 billion, which resulted primarily from our acquisition of Grandpoint in the third quarter of 2018 and Plaza Bancorp (“Plaza”) in the fourth quarter of 2017, as well as organic loan growth since the end of the fourth quarter of 2017. PACIFIC PREMIER BANCORP, INC. AND SUBSIDIARIES CONSOLIDATED AVERAGE BALANCES AND YIELD DATA     (1) Average balance includes loans held for sale and nonperforming loans and is net of deferred loan origination fees/costs and discounts/premiums. (2) Includes net discount accretion of $6.3 million, $4.1 million and $4.7 million, respectively. (3) Represents net interest income divided by average interest-earning assets. Provision for Credit Losses A provision for credit losses of $2.3 million was recorded for the fourth quarter of 2018, compared with a provision for credit losses of $2.0 million in the prior quarter. The fourth quarter of 2018 provision for credit losses includes a $580,000 reduction for unfunded commitments due primarily to lower loan commitments and loss rates. The prior quarter included a $335,000 provision for unfunded commitments. Higher organic loan growth and an increasing percentage of acquired loans attributable to the allowance contributed to the increase for the fourth quarter of 2018. Net charge-offs were $138,000 in the fourth quarter compared to $87,000 in the prior quarter. Noninterest income Noninterest income for the fourth quarter of 2018 was $7.0 million, a decrease of $1.3 million, or 15%, from the third quarter of 2018. The decrease from the third quarter of 2018 was primarily due to a $1.1 million decrease in net gain from the sale of investment securities. Other noteworthy variances include a $219,000 decrease in service charges on deposit accounts due primarily to temporary fee waivers granted during the Grandpoint system conversion, and a $341,000 decrease in earnings on bank-owned life insurance (“BOLI”), which included an increment due to death benefit in the prior quarter, partially offset by a $414,000 increase in other income primarily due to a lower net loss on Community Reinvestment Act (“CRA”) related equity investments. During the fourth quarter of 2018, the Bank sold $26.1 million of SBA loans for a gain of $1.6 million, compared with $29.9 million of SBA loans sold at a gain of $2.0 million in the third quarter of 2018. Additionally, the Bank sold $163.2 million of non-SBA loans during the fourth quarter of 2018, to manage its overall loan growth and credit risk, for a net gain of $320,000 and did not sell any non-SBA loans during the third quarter of 2018. We anticipate our noninterest income will range from $6.5 million to $7.0 million for the first quarter of 2019, excluding the impact, if any, of the U.S. Government shutdown on Small Business Administration (“SBA”) lending. Noninterest income for the fourth quarter of 2018 decreased by $2.5 million, or 26%, compared to the fourth quarter of 2017. The decrease was primarily related to a $2.4 million decrease in other income from lower recoveries on pre-acquisition charged-off loans, a $1.4 million decrease in net gain from sale of loans, partially offset by a $230,000 increase in service charges on deposit accounts, a $304,000 increase in earnings on BOLI, a $263,000 increase in loan servicing fees, and a net loss from sale of investment securities of $252,000 in the fourth quarter of 2017. Noninterest Expense Noninterest expense totaled $67.2 million for the fourth quarter of 2018, a decrease of $15.5 million, or 19%, compared with the third quarter of 2018. The decrease was primarily driven by merger-related expense of $2.6 million in the fourth quarter of 2018 compared with $14.0 million in the third quarter of 2018. Excluding merger-related expense, noninterest expense decreased $4.2 million to $64.6 million, primarily due to cost savings attributable to the acquisition of Grandpoint as compensation and benefits, data processing, and other related operating costs all decreased from the prior quarter. Compensation and benefits were equally impacted by overall lower staffing and lower incentives. The Company anticipates that total operating expense will range between $64.0 million and $67.0 million for the first quarter of 2019. Noninterest expense grew by $17.4 million, or 35%, compared to the fourth quarter of 2017. The increase in expense was primarily related to the additional costs from the operations, personnel and branches retained from the acquisitions of Grandpoint and Plaza, core deposit intangible (“CDI”) amortization expense, combined with our continued investment in personnel to support our organic growth in loans and deposits, partially offset by the reduction in merger-related expense. Income Tax For the fourth quarter of 2018, our effective tax rate was 27.9% compared with 21.5% for the third quarter of 2018 and 38.6% for the fourth quarter of 2017. The increase in the effective tax rate from the third quarter of 2018 was the result of a $2.3 million one-time benefit associated with the filing of the 2017 federal and state tax returns, and the re-measurement of deferred tax items realized in the third quarter of 2018. The decrease in the effective tax rate for the fourth quarter of 2018, compared to the fourth quarter of 2017, was primarily the result of the enactment of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act signed into law on December 22, 2017, which among other items, reduced the federal corporate tax rate to 21% effective January 2018, from the prior maximum rate of 35%. The Company's full year tax rate for 2018 was 25.5%. The Company anticipates the full year 2019 effective tax rate to be in the range of 27.0% to 29.0% with the first quarter of 2019 to be approximately 28.0%, consistent with the fourth quarter of 2018. BALANCE SHEET HIGHLIGHTS Loans Loans held for investment totaled $8.8 billion at December 31, 2018, an increase of $77.6 million, or 1%, from September 30, 2018, and an increase of $2.6 billion, or 43%, from December 31, 2017. The increase compared to the third quarter was impacted by organic loan growth partially offset by loan sales during the fourth quarter of 2018. The increase compared to the fourth quarter of 2017 was impacted both by organic growth and by the acquisition of Grandpoint, the latter of which added $2.4 billion of loans in the third quarter of 2018 before fair value adjustments. During the fourth quarter of 2018, the Bank generated $730.0 million of new loan commitments and $531.5 million of new loan fundings compared with $604.8 million in new loan commitments and $439.8 million in new loan fundings in the third quarter of 2018. The Bank experienced higher loan prepayments of $407.6 million in the fourth quarter compared with $336.0 million in the third quarter and sold a total of $189.3 million of loans during the fourth quarter to manage its overall loan growth rates and credit risk. Business loans and real estate loans increased $43.9 million and $59.8 million from the third quarter of 2018, respectively, while consumer loans decreased $25.3 million from the third quarter of 2018, primarily as a result of the loan sales. At December 31, 2018 our loans held for investment to deposit ratio was 102.1%, compared with 103.0% and 101.8% at September 30, 2018 and December 31, 2017, respectively. The following table presents the composition of the loan portfolio as of the dates indicated:     The weighted average rate on our new loan production was 5.35% in the fourth quarter of 2018 compared with 5.21% in the third quarter of 2018 and 5.00% in the fourth quarter of 2017. Asset Quality and Allowance for Loan Losses At December 31, 2018, the allowance for loan losses was $36.1 million, compared to $33.3 million at September 30, 2018 and $28.9 million at December 31, 2017, with the increases driven principally by our organic loan growth and an increasing percentage of acquired loans attributable to the allowance. Allowance for loan loss provision for the fourth quarter was $2.9 million while net charge-offs were $138,000. The ratio of allowance for loan losses to total loans held for investment at December 31, 2018 was 0.41%, compared to 0.38% at September 30, 2018. Under the guidance of ASC 820: Fair Value Measurements and Disclosures, the fair value discount on loans acquired through bank acquisitions was $61.0 million, or 0.69% of total loans held for investment, as of December 31, 2018, compared to $71.7 million, or 0.82% of total loans held for investment, as of September 30, 2018. Nonperforming assets totaled $5.0 million, or 0.04% of total assets, at December 31, 2018, a decrease of $2.7 million from $7.8 million, or 0.07% of total assets, at September 30, 2018. During the fourth quarter of 2018, nonperforming loans decreased $2.4 million to $4.9 million and other real estate owned decreased $209,000 to $147,000. Loan delinquencies increased to $12.9 million, or 0.15% of loans held for investment, compared to $7.7 million, or 0.09% of loans held for investment, at September 30, 2018. (1) The ratios are less than 0.01% as of December 31, 2018 and September 30, 2018. (2) 49% of loans held for investment include a fair value net discount of $61.0 million, as of December 31, 2018 compared with 53% and $71.7 million, respectively, as of September 30, 2018. Investment Securities Investment securities available for sale totaled $1.1 billion at December 31, 2018, an increase of $48.3 million, or 5%, from September 30, 2018, and an increase of $315.8 million, or 40%, from December 31, 2017. The increase in the fourth quarter of 2018 as compared to the third quarter of 2018 was primarily the result of purchases of $61.8 million and a mark-to-market fair value adjustment increase of $15.7 million, partially offset by $30.3 million in total principal payments, amortization, and redemptions. Deposits At December 31, 2018, deposits totaled $8.7 billion, an increase of $156.2 million, or 2%, from September 30, 2018 and an increase of $2.6 billion, or 42%, from December 31, 2017. At December 31, 2018, non-maturity deposits totaled $7.2 billion, an increase of $56 million, or 1%, from September 30, 2018 and an increase of $2.2 billion, or 45%, from December 31, 2017. During the fourth quarter of 2018, deposit increases included $61.1 million in noninterest-bearing deposits and $30.6 million in interest checking, partially offset by a $36.3 million decrease in retail certificates of deposits and a $35.7 million decrease in money market/savings deposits. Also during the quarter, the Bank added $136.5 million in brokered certificates of deposits as rates moved favorably to these sources compared with higher cost, overnight borrowings. The $2.6 billion increase in deposits from December 31, 2017 was primarily due to the acquisition of Grandpoint in the third quarter of 2018, which contributed $2.5 billion of deposits at the time of acquisition, before purchasing accounting adjustments. The weighted average cost of deposits for the three month period ending December 31, 2018 was 0.55%, compared with 0.54% for the third quarter of 2018 and 0.32% for the fourth quarter of 2017. The small increase in the weighted average cost of deposits from the third quarter of 2018 was primarily driven by higher rates in retail and wholesale/brokered certificates of deposit accounts, partially offset by the increase in noninterest-bearing deposits. Borrowings At December 31, 2018, total borrowings amounted to $778.0 million, a decrease of $194.2 million, or 20%, from September 30, 2018 and an increase of $136.6 million, or 21%, from December 31, 2017. Total borrowings for the quarter included $667.7 million of advances from the Federal Home Loan Bank of San Francisco and $110.3 million of subordinated debt. At December 31, 2018, total borrowings represented 6.8% of total assets, compared to 8.5% and 8.0%, as of September 30, 2018 and December 31, 2017, respectively. Capital Ratios At December 31, 2018, our ratio of tangible common equity to total assets was 10.02%, compared with 9.47% in the prior quarter, with tangible book value per share of $16.97, compared with $16.06 at September 30, 2018 and $15.26 at December 31, 2017. At December 31, 2018, the Company had a tier 1 leverage capital ratio of 10.38%, common equity tier 1 risk-based capital ratio of 10.88%, tier 1 risk-based capital ratio of 11.13% and total risk-based capital ratio of 12.39%. At December 31, 2018, the Bank exceeded all regulatory capital requirements with tier 1 leverage capital ratio of 11.06%, common equity tier 1 risk-based capital ratio of 11.87%, tier 1 risk-based capital ratio of 11.87% and total risk-based capital of 12.28%. These capital ratios exceeded the “well capitalized” standards defined by the federal banking regulators of 5.00% for tier 1 leverage capital, 6.50% for common equity tier 1 risk-based capital, 8.00% for tier 1 risk-based capital and 10.00% for total risk-based capital.
