Stonegate Bank Announces First Quarter 2017 Operating Results

POMPANO BEACH, FL--(Marketwired - Apr 28, 2017) - Stonegate Bank (NASDAQ: SGBK) ("Stonegate") reported net income of $8.0 million for the first quarter of 2017, or $0.53 per diluted common share ($0.56 per common share net operating income, a non-GAAP measurement described below), as compared to net income of $6.9 million for the first quarter of 2016 or $0.52 per diluted common share. 

Net operating income is a non-GAAP financial measurement used by management to evaluate and monitor financial results of operations and excludes certain activities or transactions, such as merger and acquisition related expenses. Information related to our use of non-GAAP financial measures and a table reconciling GAAP to non-GAAP measures used in this press release are under the caption Non-GAAP Financial Measures - Reconciliation of GAAP to non-GAAP Measures.

Key highlights for the first quarter:

  • Home BancShares Merger: Announced the signing of a definitive agreement with Home BancShares, Inc. and its wholly-owned bank subsidiary, Centennial Bank, an Arkansas state bank, under which Home BancShares, Inc. and Centennial Bank will acquire Stonegate. The agreement provides that Stonegate will merge with and into Centennial Bank. This transaction is expected to close in the fourth quarter of 2017.

  • Insignia Bank Acquisition: Closed on the acquisition of Insignia Bank ("Insignia") on March 7, 2017, making Stonegate the largest community bank by deposit market share in Sarasota County. At acquisition, Insignia had $190.5 million in loans and $204.1 million in deposits, before any fair value adjustments.

  • Loans: Total loans, net of discounts and deferred fees, increased $206.0 million during the first quarter of 2017 to $2.5 billion at March 31, 2017, a result of loans acquired through the Insignia acquisition and $20.4 million of net organic loan growth during the quarter. Payoffs again were above normal at approximately $67.2 million for the quarter. Based upon the outstanding balance as of March 31, 2017, commercial real estate ("CRE") comprised 46% of new loan originations, residential loans accounted for 23% of the new originations, commercial and industrial ("C&I") accounted for 13% of the new loan originations, and construction accounted for 11% with the remaining balance primarily in other loans. The loan production for the first quarter was comprised of 68% variable rate loans. Approximately 62% of the variable rate loans originated in the first quarter were tied to LIBOR and 14% were tied to the prime rate. 

  • Asset Quality: Total loans past due, excluding nonaccrual loans, were $4.5 million at March 31, 2017, an increase of $4.1 million from December 31, 2016. Nonaccrual loans were $9.1 million at March 31, 2017, or 0.37% of total loans, an increase from $8.6 million at December 31, 2016, or 0.38% of total loans. Other real estate owned was $4.2 million at March 31, 2017, an increase of $1.4 million from December 31, 2016. The increase in OREO was a result of the Insignia acquisition. See Credit Quality and Allowance for Loan Losses for a detailed analysis of past due and nonaccrual loans.
     
  • Net Interest Income and Margin: Net interest income, on a tax-equivalent basis, totaled $26.3 million for the three months ended March 31, 2017, and represented a decrease of $809,000 when compared to the three months ended December 31, 2016. The net interest margin, on a tax-equivalent basis, decreased to 3.91% for the first quarter of 2017 as compared to 4.01% for the fourth quarter of 2016 and a decrease over the tax-equivalent net interest margin of 3.92% for the quarter ended March 31, 2016. The decrease in the margin from the fourth quarter of 2016 to the first quarter of 2017 was primarily a result of greater nonaccretable discounts recognized during the fourth quarter 2016, higher liquidity in the form of deposits with interest at other banks and an increase in the yield on total interest- bearing liabilities. 

  • Noninterest Expense: Noninterest expense decreased to $15.1 million for the three months ended March 31, 2017 from $16.9 million for the three months ended December 31, 2016. The decrease in expenses was primarily a result of expenses in the fourth quarter of 2016 associated with the Regent Bank and Insignia acquisitions.

  • Capital: Stonegate remained well-capitalized as of March 31, 2017 with capital of $410.1 million as compared to $355.1 million at December 31, 2016. As of March 31, 2017, Stonegate's total risk-based capital ratio was 12.3%; Stonegate's Tier 1 risk-based and Common Equity Tier 1 capital ratios were each 11.3%; and Stonegate's leverage capital ratio was 10.0%.

Credit Quality and Allowance for Loan Losses

Loans past due 30-89 days were $4.4 million at March 31, 2017, an increase from $387,000 at December 31, 2016. The increase in loans past due was primarily attributable to two loans, for a total of $2.6 million, acquired from Florida Shores Bank - Southwest, and another loan for $748,000 acquired from Regent Bank. Past dues acquired in the Insignia acquisition totaled $50,000 at March 31, 2017. There were no loans past due 90 days or more and still accruing at March 31, 2017. Legacy loans (i.e., loans made by Stonegate and not acquired through acquisition) past due at March 31, 2017 totaled $587,000 and $0 at December 31, 2016. Nonaccrual loans were $9.1 million at March 31, 2017, an increase from $8.6 million at December 31, 2016. This increase was due primarily to $770,000 of new loans that were changed to nonaccrual status during the first quarter, offset by one nonaccrual loan for $140,000 which was paid off and one loan for $100,000 which was transferred to OREO. Legacy nonaccrual loans were approximately $2.8 million at March 31, 2017 versus $2.6 million as of December 31, 2016. Residential loans classified as nonaccrual were $3.2 million, or 35.4% of the nonaccrual loans, and commercial real estate loans classified as nonaccrual were $1.3 million, or 14.7% of the nonaccrual loans, as of March 31, 2017. At March 31, 2017, there remained approximately $14.9 million in nonaccretable discounts on loans previously acquired, of which $1.0 million was associated with the loans acquired in the Insignia acquisition. None of the acquired loans are subject to a loss share arrangement with the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation. The following table outlines Stonegate's past due and nonaccrual loans at March 31, 2017:

                   
(dollars in thousands) Legacy Bank   Insignia Bank   Regent Bank   Other Acquired Banks   Total
Past due 30-89 days $ 587   $ 50   $ 748   $ 2,967   $ 4,352
Past due 90 + days   -     -     -     -     -
Nonaccrual   2,847     -     3,893     2,319     9,059
Total $ 3,434   $ 50   $ 4,641   $ 5,286   $ 13,411
                             

Nonperforming assets (nonaccrual loans and other real estate owned) were $13.3 million as of March 31, 2017, an increase of $1.9 million from December 31, 2016. Other real estate owned ("OREO") increased to $4.2 million as of March 31, 2017 as compared to $2.8 million as of December 31, 2016. The increase of $1.4 million in OREO from December 31, 2016 consisted primarily of $1.9 million acquired in the Insignia acquisition, partially offset by the sale of one single-family residence.

Loans modified as troubled debt restructuring were $9.4 million and $9.5 million at March 31, 2017 and December 31, 2016, respectively. There were no loans modified as troubled debt restructuring during the first quarter of 2017. Specific reserves allocated to loans modified as troubled debt restructuring increased to $161,000 at March 31, 2017, from $140,000 at December 31, 2016.

At March 31, 2017, the allowance for loan losses was $19.5 million, an increase of $650,000 from December 31, 2016. During the first quarter of 2017, recoveries totaled $169,000, charge-offs were $119,000 and we added provision expense of $600,000. The provision expense added for the first quarter was due to an increase in specific reserves and to the continued layering in of the acquired loan portfolios. Specific reserves increased to $820,000 at March 31, 2017 from $725,000 at December 31, 2016. The allowance for loan losses represented 0.79% of total loans as of March 31, 2017 and 0.83% of total loans as of December 31, 2016.

Net Interest Income and Margin

On a tax-equivalent basis, Stonegate's net interest income for the three months ended March 31, 2017 was $26.3 million, a decrease of approximately $809,000 from the fourth quarter of 2016 and an increase of $5.2 million from the first quarter of 2016. Average earning assets grew $36.3 million from the fourth quarter of 2016 to the first quarter of 2017, primarily a result of a $25.2 million increase in loans, and a $12.4 million increase in Stonegate's interest-earning deposits with other banks. The yield on loans decreased from 5.10% for the fourth quarter of 2016 to 5.00% for the first quarter of 2017, and was slightly higher than the 4.89% yield for the first quarter of 2016. The decrease in the loan yield from the fourth quarter of 2016 to the first quarter of 2017 was primarily due to the increased level of accretable and nonaccretable discounts recognized in the fourth quarter of 2016. The loan yield for the first quarter of 2017 without nonaccretable discounts was 4.82% versus 4.87% in the fourth quarter of 2016. During the first quarter of 2017, discounts of approximately $840,000 were recognized on loans which were paid off during the quarter.

The net interest margin on a tax-equivalent basis decreased from 4.01% for the fourth quarter of 2016 to 3.91% for the first quarter of 2017. The net interest margin was 3.92% for the first quarter of 2016. The average yield on total earning assets was 4.43% for the first quarter of 2017, a decrease of six basis points from the fourth quarter of 2016. The increase in the average balances of deposits held at other banks increased in the first quarter of 2017 as compared to the fourth quarter of 2016 by $12.4 million and by $94.4 million from the first quarter of 2016. This increase in a lower yielding asset has also attributed to the decline in the yield on earning assets and the net interest margin. The average yield on interest-bearing liabilities was 0.69% for the three months ended March 31, 2017 versus 0.64% for the three months ended December 31, 2016. The yield on time deposits increased seven basis points for the three months ended March 31, 2017 as compared to the three months ended December 31, 2016. This increase was largely due to the Insignia acquisitions as Insignia's time deposits had an average yield of 1.03% since March 7, 2017, the date of acquisition. Stonegate's cost of funds has increased from 0.46% for the March 2016 month-to-date average to 0.55% for the March 2017 month-to-date average. 

The following table recaps yields and costs by various interest-earning asset and interest-bearing liability account types for the current quarter, the previous quarter and the same quarter last year.

Noninterest Income

Noninterest income of $2.1 million for the first quarter of 2017 decreased from $2.5 million for the quarter ended December 31, 2016. The decrease in noninterest income was primarily driven by higher gains on the sale of OREO of approximately $310,000 during the fourth quarter of 2016. Additionally, we did not receive any fees from interest rate swaps during the first quarter of 2017 versus $86,000 in the fourth quarter of 2016.

Noninterest Expense

Noninterest expense for the three months ended March 31, 2017 decreased to $15.1 million from $16.9 million at December 31, 2016, and was greater than the $12.5 million for the three months ended March 31, 2016. The decrease in noninterest expense was primarily related to expenses incurred in the fourth quarter with the Regent Bank and Insignia acquisitions. 

Salaries and employee benefits decreased to $8.4 million for the first quarter of 2017 versus $9.1 million for the fourth quarter of 2016. This compares with $7.1 million for the three months ended March 31, 2016. The decrease in salaries and employee benefits in the first quarter of 2017 from the fourth quarter of 2016 were payments made in the fourth quarter for the Regent Bank conversion and a decrease in the incentive accrual.

Occupancy and equipment expenses decreased $234,000 to $2.3 million for the three months ended March 31, 2017 versus $2.5 million for the three months ended December 31, 2016. The decrease was primarily due to a reduction in depreciation expense in the first quarter of 2017. Occupancy and equipment expenses were $2.1 million for the three months ended March 31, 2016. Expenses for merger-related branch closures in the fourth quarter of 2016 were approximately $48,000.

Data processing expenses decreased $1.2 million from $1.7 million for the fourth quarter of 2016 to $478,000 for the quarter ended March 31, 2017. Approximately $1.0 million of data processing expenses in the fourth quarter were related to the Regent Bank data conversion. Additionally during the fourth quarter, approximately $109,000 of the $1.7 million were expenses associated with Regent Bank's data processing prior to conversion. Data processing expenses associated with the Insignia acquisition were very minimal in the first three months of 2017. Professional fees increased for the three months ended March 31, 2017. During the first quarter of 2017, professional fees total $1.4 million versus $782,000 in the fourth quarter of 2016 and $604,000 for the three months ended March 31, 2016. During the first quarter of 2017, legal and other professional fees for merger-related expenses were $583,000 as compared to $43,000 in the fourth quarter of 2016. 

The table below outlines the expenses for the quarters ended:

             
(in thousands of dollars)   March 31, 2017   December 31, 2016   March 31, 2016
                   
Salaries and employee benefits   $ 8,411   $ 9,135   $ 7,097
Occupancy and equipment expense     2,264     2,498     2,113
FDIC insurance and state assessments     398     396     383
Data processing     478     1,669     452
Loan and other real estate expense     201     277     154
Professional fees     1,352     782     604
Core deposit intangible amortization     463     489     414

Totals   $ 15,118   $ 16,927   $ 12,536
                   

Looking forward to the second quarter of 2017, Stonegate anticipates additional costs associated with the Insignia data conversion and professional fees associated with the pending merger with Home Bancshares, Inc. and Centennial Bank.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

This press release contains financial information determined by methods other than in accordance with GAAP. Stonegate's management uses these non-GAAP financial measures in their analysis of Stonegate's performance. These measures typically adjust GAAP performance measures to include the tax benefit associated with revenue items that are tax-exempt, as well as adjust income available to common shareholders for certain significant activities or transactions, such as merger-related expenses, that in management's opinion can distort period-to-period comparisons of Stonegate's performance. Since the presentation of these GAAP performance measures and their impact differ between companies, management believes presentations of these non-GAAP financial measures provide useful supplemental information that is essential to a proper understanding of the operating results of Stonegate's core business. These non-GAAP disclosures should not be viewed as a substitute for operating results determined in accordance with GAAP, nor are they necessarily comparable to non-GAAP performance measures that may be presented by other companies. Reconciliations of GAAP to non-GAAP disclosures in this press release are set forth below.
