Triumph Bancorp Reports First Quarter Net Income to Common Stockholders of $33.1 Million

Apr 21, 2021

Dallas, Texas, UNITED STATES DALLAS, April 21, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Triumph Bancorp, Inc. (Nasdaq: TBK) (“Triumph” or the “Company”) today announced earnings and operating results for the first quarter of 2021. As part of how we measure our results, we use certain non-GAAP financial measures to ascertain performance. These non-GAAP financial measures are reconciled in the section labeled “Metrics and non-GAAP financial reconciliation” at the end of this press release. 2021 First Quarter Highlights For the first quarter of 2021, net income to common shareholders was $33.1 million, and diluted earnings per share were $1.32. Net interest income was $83.0 million. Net interest margin was 6.06%. Yield on loans and the average cost of our total deposits were 7.24% and 0.28%, respectively. Non-interest income was $14.3 million, including a $4.7 million gain on indemnification asset related to the Transport Financial Solutions ("TFS") acquisition as described below. Non-interest expense was $60.9 million. Credit loss expense for the quarter ended March 31, 2021 was a benefit of $7.8 million. Components of our credit loss expense included: A $9.5 million reduction in current expected losses in the loan portfolio and off balance sheet loan commitments primarily due to improvements in our macroeconomic forecasts. $1.9 million expense due to net increases in specific reserves, including $2.9 million expense related to the TFS acquisition as discussed below. Net charge-offs were $41.3 million, or 0.85% of average loans, for the quarter including a fully reserved $41.3 million charge-off related to the TFS acquisition; $35.6 million of which was indemnified and reimbursed to us by Covenant Logistics Group, Inc. as discussed below. The total dollar value of invoices purchased by Triumph Business Capital was $2.492 billion with an average invoice size of $2,097. The transportation average invoice size for the quarter was $1,974. TriumphPay processed 2,529,673 invoices paying carriers a total of $2.302 billion. On March 31, 2021, we, through TriumphPay, a division of our wholly-owned subsidiary TBK Bank, SSB, entered into a definitive agreement to acquire HubTran, Inc., a cloud-based provider of automation software for the transportation industry's back-office, for $97 million in cash subject to customary purchase price adjustments and closing conditions. The acquisition is subject to customary closing conditions, including receipt of regulatory approval, and is expected to close in the second quarter of 2021. Items related to our July 2020 acquisition of TFS As disclosed on our SEC Forms 8-K filed on July 8, 2020 and September 23, 2020, we acquired the transportation factoring assets of TFS, a wholly owned subsidiary of Covenant Logistics Group, Inc. ("CVLG"), and subsequently amended the terms of that transaction. Developments related to that transaction impacted our operating results for the three months ended March 31, 2021 as follows: During the quarter, new adverse developments with the largest of the three Over-Formula Advance clients caused us to charge-off the entire $41.3 million net Over-Formula Advance amount due from that client. This net charge-off had no impact on credit loss expense for the three months ended March 31, 2021 as the entire amount had been reserved in a prior period. In accordance with the amended terms of the transaction, CVLG reimbursed us for $35.6 million of this charge-off by drawing on its secured line of credit which is reflected on our March 31, 2021 Consolidated Balance Sheet as a performing equipment loan held for investment. Given separate developments with the other two Over-Formula Advance clients, we reserved an additional $2.9 million reflected in credit loss expense during the three months ended March 31, 2021. At quarter end, our entire remaining over formula advance position was down from $62.1 million at December 31, 2020 to $10.6 million at March 31, 2021 and the $10.6 million balance at March 31, 2021 was fully reserved. The $2.9 million increase in required ACL as well as accretion of most of the fair value discount on the indemnification asset held at December 31, 2020 resulted in a $4.7 million gain on the indemnification asset which was recorded through non-interest income. The net pretax income impact of the adjustments to credit loss expense and indemnification asset associated with the three Over-Formula Advance clients was pretax income of $1.8 million. At March 31, 2021, the carrying value of the acquired over-formula advances was $10.6 million, the total reserve on acquired over-formula advances was $10.6 million and the balance of our indemnification asset, the value of the payment that would be due to us from CVLG in the event that these over-advances are charged off, was $5.2 million. As of March 31, 2021 we carried a separate $19.2 million receivable (the “Misdirected Payments”) payable by the United States Postal Service (“USPS”) arising from accounts factored to the largest over-formula advance carrier. This amount is separate from the acquired Over-Formula Advances. The amounts represented by this receivable were paid by the USPS directly to such customer in contravention of notices of assignment delivered to, and previously honored by, the USPS, which amount was then not remitted back to us by such customer as required. The USPS disputes their obligation to make such payment, citing purported deficiencies in the notices delivered to them. In addition to commencing litigation against such customer, we have also filed a declaratory judgment action in United States Federal District Court for the Southern District of Florida seeking a ruling that the USPS was obligated to make the payments represented by this receivable directly to us. Based on our legal analysis and discussions with our counsel advising us on this matter, we believe it is probable that we will prevail in such action and that the USPS will have the capacity to make payment on such receivable. Consequently, we have not reserved for such balance as of March 31, 2021. The full amount of such receivable is reflected in non-performing and past due factored receivables as of March 31, 2021 in accordance with our policy. As of March 31, 2021, the entire $19.2 million Misdirected Payments amount was greater than 90 days past due. Balance Sheet Total loans held for investment increased $87.7 million, or 1.8%, during the first quarter to $5.085 billion at March 31, 2021. Average loans held for investment for the quarter decreased $24.7 million, or 0.5%, to $4.834 billion. The commercial finance portfolio increased $146.4 million, or 7.8%, to $2.021 billion, the national lending portfolio decreased $30.5 million, or 2.5%, to $1.191 billion, and the community banking portfolio decreased $28.2 million, or 1.5%, to $1.873 billion during the quarter. Total deposits were $4.790 billion at March 31, 2021, an increase of $73.1 million, or 1.5%, in the first quarter of 2021. Non-interest-bearing deposits accounted for 34% of total deposits and non-time deposits accounted for 72% of total deposits at March 31, 2021. Asset Quality and Allowance for Credit Loss Our nonperforming assets ratio at March 31, 2021 was 1.15%. Approximately 2 basis points of this ratio at March 31, 2021 consisted of $1.4 million of the acquired Over-Formula Advance portfolio which represents the portion that is not covered by CVLG's indemnification. An additional 38 basis points of this ratio at March 31, 2021 consisted of $19.2 million of the Misdirected Payments, as discussed above. Our past-due loan ratio at March 31, 2021 was 1.96%. Approximately 21 basis points of this ratio at March 31, 2021 consisted of $10.6 million of past due factored receivables related to the Over-Formula Advance portfolio. An additional 38 basis points of this ratio at March 31, 2021 consisted of the $19.2 million of Misdirected Payments, as discussed above. We recorded total net charge-offs of $41.3 million, or 0.85% of average loans, for the quarter ended March 31, 2021. Net charge-offs were impacted by items related to our TFS acquisition, as discussed above. Our ACL as a percentage of loans held for investment decreased 98 basis points during the quarter to 0.94% at March 31, 2021. In addition to the impact of an improved macroeconomic forecast, this decrease reflects a $41.3 million charge-off during the period related to the TFS acquisition as discussed above. The recorded reserves on the over-formula advance portfolio acquired from TFS constitute 21 basis points of the ACL ratio at March 31, 2021. CARES Act and Paycheck Protection Program As of March 31, 2021, our balance sheet reflected deferrals on outstanding loan balances of $85.3 million to assist customers impacted by COVID-19. Modifications related to the COVID-19 pandemic and qualifying under the provisions of Section 4013 of the CARES Act are not considered troubled debt restructurings. As of March 31, 2021, these deferred balances carried accrued interest of $0.5 million. During the three months ended March 31, 2021, we originated $83.5 million of PPP loans. As of March 31, 2021, we carried 2,670 PPP loans representing a balance of $237.3 million classified as commercial loans. We recognized $1.1 million in fees from the SBA on PPP loans during the three months ended March 31, 2021 and carry $6.6 million of deferred fees on PPP loans at quarter end. The remaining fees will be amortized over the respective lives of the loans. Conference Call Information Aaron P.
