Central Valley Community Bancorp Reports Earnings Results for the Year and Quarter Ended December 31, 2015

FRESNO, CA--(Marketwired - Jan 26, 2016) -  The Board of Directors of Central Valley Community Bancorp (Company) (NASDAQ: CVCY), the parent company of Central Valley Community Bank (Bank), reported today unaudited consolidated net income of $10,964,000, and diluted earnings per common share of $1.00 for the year ended December 31, 2015, compared to $5,294,000 and $0.48 per diluted common share for the year ended December 31, 2014. 

Net income for the period increased 107.10% in 2015 compared to 2014, primarily driven by a decrease in provision for credit losses and an increase in non-interest income, offset by an increase in provision for income taxes and an increase in non-interest expenses. During the year ended December 31, 2015, the Company recorded a provision for credit losses of $600,000, compared to $7,985,000 during the year ended December 31, 2014. Net interest income before the provision for credit losses for the year ended December 31, 2015 was $40,775,000, compared to $39,883,000 for the year ended December 31, 2014, an increase of $892,000 or 2.24%. Net interest income during 2015 and 2014 was benefited by approximately $424,000 and $879,000, respectively, in net interest income from prepayment penalties and payoff of loans previously on nonaccrual status. Excluding these benefits, net interest income for the year ended December 31, 2015 increased by $1,347,000 compared to the year ended December 31, 2014. 

Non-performing assets decreased by $11,639,000, or 82.83%, to $2,413,000 at December 31, 2015, compared to $14,052,000 at December 31, 2014. During the year ended December 31, 2015, the Company's shareholders' equity increased $8,278,000, or 6.32%. The increase in shareholders' equity was driven by the retention of earnings net of dividends paid, partially offset by a decrease in unrealized gains on available-for-sale securities recorded in accumulated other comprehensive income (AOCI). 

Return on average equity (ROE) for year ended December 31, 2015 was 8.12%, compared to 4.06% for the year ended December 31, 2014. Notwithstanding an increase in shareholders' equity, this increase in ROE was achieved due to an even-stronger increase in net income. The Company declared and paid $0.18 per share in cash dividends to holders of common stock during the year ended 2015 compared to $0.20 per share during the year ended 2014. Return on average assets (ROA) was 0.90% in 2015 and 0.46% in 2014. During the year ended December 31, 2015, the Company's total assets increased 7.09%, and total liabilities increased 7.19%, compared to those at December 31, 2014. 

During the year ended December 31, 2015, the Company recorded a provision for credit losses of $600,000, as compared to $7,985,000 during the year ended December 31, 2014. During the year ended December 31, 2015, the Company recorded $702,000 in net loan recoveries, compared to $8,885,000 in net loan charge-offs for the year ended December 31, 2014. The net (recovery) charge-off ratio, which reflects net (recoveries) charge-offs to average loans, was (0.12)% for the year ended December 31, 2015, compared to 1.65% for the same period in 2014.

At December 31, 2015, the allowance for credit losses stood at $9,610,000, compared to $8,308,000 at December 31, 2014, a net increase of $1,302,000 reflecting the provision of $600,000 and the net recoveries during the year. The allowance for credit losses as a percentage of total loans was 1.61% at December 31, 2015, and 1.45% at December 31, 2014. Total loans included loans acquired in the acquisition of Visalia Community Bank in 2013 ("VCB loans") that were recorded at fair value in connection with the acquisition. The value of the VCB loans totaled $62,395,000 at December 31, 2015 and $77,882,000 at December 31, 2014. Excluding these VCB loans from the calculation, the allowance for credit losses to total gross loans was 1.79% and 1.68% as of December 31, 2015 and December 31, 2014, respectively, and general reserves associated with non-impaired loans to total non-impaired loans was 1.79% and 1.62%, respectively. The Company believes the allowance for credit losses is adequate to provide for probable incurred losses inherent within the loan portfolio at December 31, 2015. 

Total non-performing assets were $2,413,000, or 0.19% of total assets as of December 31, 2015, compared to $14,052,000, or 1.18% of total assets as of December 31, 2014. The decrease in non-performing assets resulted from the continued liquidation of certain assets serving as collateral for various impaired credits. 

In connection with the partial charge-off of a single commercial and agricultural relationship in the fourth quarter of 2014, the Company is actively working to collect all balances legally owed to the Company. The Company plans to continue to track and identify any expenses, net of recoveries, associated with the collection efforts of this commercial and agricultural relationship. For the year ended December 31, 2015, collection expenses related to this relationship totaled $436,000.

The following provides a reconciliation of the change in nonaccrual loans for 2015.

The Company's net interest margin (fully tax equivalent basis) was 4.01% for the year ended December 31, 2015, compared to 4.11% for the year ended December 31, 2014. The decrease in net interest margin in the period-to-period comparison primarily resulted from a decrease in the yield on the Company's loan portfolio, partially offset by a decrease in the Company's cost of funds. 

For the year ended December 31, 2015, the effective yield on total earning assets decreased 12 basis points to 4.10% compared to 4.22% for the year ended December 31, 2014, while the cost of total interest-bearing liabilities decreased 2 basis points to 0.15% compared to 0.17% for the year ended December 31, 2014. The cost of total deposits decreased 2 basis points to 0.09% for the year ended December 31, 2015, compared to 0.11% for the year ended December 31, 2014.

Total average assets for the year ended December 31, 2015 were $1,222,526,000 compared to $1,157,483,000, for the year ended December 31, 2014, an increase of $65,043,000 or 5.62%. During 2015 and 2014, the average loan to deposit ratio was 55.05% and 53.60%, respectively. Total average deposits increased $59,238,000 or 5.89% to $1,065,798,000 for the year ended December 31, 2015, compared to $1,006,560,000 for the year ended December 31, 2014. Average interest-bearing deposits increased $20,129,000, or 3.06%, and average non-interest bearing demand deposits increased $39,109,000, or 11.21%, for the year ended December 31, 2015, compared to the year ended December 31, 2014. The Company's ratio of average non-interest bearing deposits to total deposits was 36.40% for the year ended December 31, 2015, compared to 34.65% for the year ended December 31, 2014. 

Non-interest income for the year ended December 31, 2015 increased by $1,223,000 to $9,387,000, compared to $8,164,000 for the year ended December 31, 2014, primarily driven by an increase of $591,000 in net realized gains on sales and calls of investment securities, a $498,000 increase in loan placement fees, a $169,000 increase in other income, and a $253,000 increase in Federal Home Loan Bank dividends, partially offset by a $210,000 decrease in service charge income, and an $8,000 decrease in interchange fees. The Company realized a $345,000 tax-free gain related to the collection of life insurance proceeds in June 2015, which is included in other non-interest income. 

Non-interest expense for the year ended December 31, 2015 increased $678,000, or 1.92%, to $36,016,000 compared to $35,338,000 for the year ended December 31, 2014. The net increase year over year was a result of increases in salaries and employee benefits of $1,115,000, increases in professional services of $328,000, increases in Internet banking expenses of $189,000, increases in regulatory assessments of $297,000, increases in license and maintenance contracts of $32,000, and increases in advertising fees of $19,000, offset by decreases in data processing expenses of $681,000, decreases in ATM/Debit card expenses of $76,000, and decreases in occupancy and equipment expenses of $166,000. The increase in professional services included $436,000 related to defending and collecting a significant single commercial and agricultural relationship that deteriorated during late 2014. The increase in salaries and employee benefits was primarily the result of increased performance incentives, and higher health insurance expenses. During the year ended December 31, 2015, other non-interest expenses included increases of $62,000 in telephone expenses, $44,000 in director's fees, and $19,000 in personnel expenses, offset by decreases of $195,000 in net losses on disposal or write-down of premises and equipment, $64,000 in appraisal fees, and $26,000 in postage expenses, as compared to the same period in 2014. 

The Company recorded an income tax provision of $2,582,000 for the year ended December 31, 2015, compared to an income tax benefit of $570,000 for the year ended December 31, 2014. The effective tax rate for the year ended December 31, 2015 was 19.06%. The Company's effective tax rate in 2015 is significantly lower than the statutory tax rate due to effective tax planning strategies, as well as the expiration of certain tax exposures during 2015.

Quarter Ended December 31, 2015

For the quarter ended December 31, 2015, the Company reported an unaudited consolidated net income of $2,903,000 and earnings per diluted common share of $0.26, compared to consolidated net loss of $(2,366,000) and $(0.22) per diluted share for the same period in 2014. Net income for the immediately trailing quarter ended September 30, 2015 was $2,517,000, or $0.23 per diluted common share. The increase in net income during the fourth quarter of 2015 compared to the same period in 2014 is primarily due to a decrease in provision for credit losses and an increase in net interest income, partially offset by an increase in provision for income taxes and a decrease in non-interest income. The Company recorded no provision for credit losses during the fourth quarter of 2015 compared to $8,385,000 during the same period of 2014. 

Annualized return on average equity (ROE) for the fourth quarter of 2015 was 8.42%, compared to (7.06)% for the same period of 2014. The increase in ROE reflects an increase in net income, offset by an increase in shareholders' equity. Annualized return on average assets (ROA) was 0.92% for the fourth quarter of 2015 compared to (0.8)% for the same period in 2014. This increase is due to an increase in net income, notwithstanding an increase in average assets.

In comparing the fourth quarter of 2015 to the fourth quarter of 2014, average total loans increased by $23,698,000, or 4.19%. During the fourth quarter of 2015, the Company recorded $517,000 in net loan recoveries compared to $7,566,000 in net charge-offs for the same period in 2014. The net charge-off (recovery) ratio, which reflects annualized net charge-offs to average loans, was (0.35)% for the quarter ended December 31, 2015 compared to 5.35% for the quarter ended December 31, 2014.

"The fourth quarter and full year results for the Company reflect the benefits of our historical customer relationship focus and demonstrate improved financial results throughout the Company. Loans and deposits continue to grow in spite of the uneven economic environment in California's San Joaquin Valley. We are particularly pleased with our initiatives focused on generating non-interest income in the areas of mortgage generation and investment income. Additionally, the year finished with a small recovery on a large former non-performing loan relationship and recoveries are expected to continue into 2016," stated James M. Ford, President and CEO of Central Valley Community Bancorp and Central Valley Community Bank.

"In an effort to reallocate expenses to areas of more rapid growth opportunities and improve efficiencies for the Company, we will complete the closure of one Fresno office during the second quarter of 2016, and the customer relationships will be transferred to a neighboring branch. This closure will result in full-year pre-tax expense savings of approximately $500,000. While the economy in the San Joaquin Valley has improved, albeit at a slower pace than California as a whole, we believe the Company is positioned to maintain sensible growth throughout our seven-county footprint," concluded Ford.
