Stonegate Bank Announces Fourth Quarter 2016 Operating Results

POMPANO BEACH, FL--(Marketwired - Jan 27, 2017) - Stonegate Bank (NASDAQ: SGBK) ("Stonegate") reported net income of $9.0 million for the fourth quarter of 2016 or $0.62 per diluted common share ($0.62 per common share net operating income, a non-GAAP measurement described below), as compared to net income of $6.6 million for the third quarter of 2016 or $0.49 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 presented below under the caption Non-GAAP Financial Measures - Reconciliation of GAAP to non-GAAP Measures.

Key highlights for the fourth quarter:

  • Loans: Total loans, net of discounts and deferred fees, decreased $18.0 million during the fourth quarter of 2016 to $2.27 billion at December 31, 2016. The primary reason for the decrease in loans was payoffs. Approximately $12.0 million of paid off loans were in the loan portfolio acquired in Stonegate's acquisition of Regent Bancorp, Inc. and Regent Bank (collectively, "Regent"), some of which were classified loans that were sold. Additionally, approximately $23.1 million of the decrease were loans acquired in connection with Stonegate's acquisition of Community Bank of Broward. Lastly, management has made a concerted effort to reduce the Bank's Commercial Real Estate concentration and therefore has allowed certain of these loans to payoff rather than renew them. Based upon the outstanding balance as of December 31, 2016, during the fourth quarter of 2016, commercial real estate ("CRE") comprised 44% of new loan originations, residential loans accounted for 23% of the new originations and commercial and industrial ("C&I") accounted for 22% of the new loan originations, with the remaining balance primarily in construction loans. The loan production for the fourth quarter was comprised of 76% variable rate loans. Approximately 57% of the variable rate loans originated in the fourth quarter were tied to LIBOR and 13% were tied to the prime rate. Organic loan growth for 2016 was approximately 9.35%.

  • Asset Quality: Total loans past due, excluding nonaccrual loans, were $327,000 at December 31, 2016, a decrease of $2.8 million from September 30, 2016. Nonaccrual loans were $8.6 million at December 31, 2016, or 0.38% of total loans, a decrease from $9.0 million at September 30, 2016, or 0.39% of total loans. Other real estate owned was $2.8 million at December 31, 2016, a decrease of $2.0 million from September 30, 2016. 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 $27.1 million for the three months ended December 31, 2016, and represented an increase of $4.6 million when compared to the three months ended September 30, 2016. The net interest margin, on a tax-equivalent basis, increased to 4.01% for the fourth quarter of 2016 as compared to 3.86% for the third quarter of 2016 and a decrease over the tax-equivalent net interest margin of 4.06% for the quarter ended December 31, 2015. The increase in the margin from the third quarter of 2016 to the fourth quarter of 2016 was primarily a result of greater nonaccretable discounts recognized during the fourth quarter.

  • Noninterest Expense: Noninterest expense increased to $16.9 million for the three months ended December 31, 2016 from $13.8 million for the three months ended September 30, 2016. The increase in expenses was primarily a result of expenses associated with the Regent and Insignia Bank acquisitions.

  • Capital: Stonegate remained well-capitalized as of December 31, 2016 with capital of $356.1 million as compared to $346.1 million at September 30, 2016. As of December 31, 2016, Stonegate's total risk-based capital ratio was 12.1%; Stonegate's Tier 1 and Common Equity Tier 1 capital ratios were each 11.1%; and Stonegate's leverage capital ratio was 10.0%. 

Loans and Deposits

Loans outstanding at December 31, 2016 were $2.27 billion as compared to $2.29 billion at September 30, 2016, a decrease of $18.0 million during the fourth quarter of 2016. Loans outstanding that were acquired through Stonegate's acquisition of Regent were $245.0 million at December 31, 2016, a decrease of $13.9 million since September 30, 2016.

The loan portfolio consists primarily of loans to individuals and small- and medium-sized businesses within Stonegate's primary market areas of South and West Florida. The table below shows the loan portfolio composition:

New loan originations were $178.9 million during the fourth quarter of 2016, with fundings of $107.4 million. As of December 31, 2016, outstanding commitments were approximately $452.2 million with approximately $63.3 million representing new approved loan originations and approximately $118.0 million in unfunded construction commitments. 

Deposits decreased to $2.45 billion at December 31, 2016 from $2.49 billion at September 30, 2016. This decrease was primarily due to the investment of cash previously held as deposits by several of our larger relationships. Noninterest-bearing deposits were $506.8 million at December 31, 2016, a decrease from $550.0 million at September 30, 2016, and represented approximately 20.7% of Stonegate's total deposits.

Credit Quality and Allowance for Loan Losses

Loans past due 30-89 days were $387,000 at December 31, 2016, a decrease from $2.65 million at September 30, 2016. Credit card balances past due and accruing totaled $78,000, with $18,000 in balances past due 90 days or more and still accruing at December 31, 2016. Loans past due 90 days or more and still accruing were $471,000 at September 30, 2016. Excluding credit cards, there were no legacy loans (i.e., loans made by Stonegate and not acquired by acquisition), which were past due at December 31, 2016 as compared to $1.7 million at September 30, 2016. Nonaccrual loans stood at $8.6 million at December 31, 2016, a decrease from $9.0 million at September 30, 2016. This decrease was due primarily to $1.65 million of nonaccrual loans which were paid off and three loans for a total of $356,000 which were removed from nonaccrual status, offset by $1.57 million in new loans that were changed to nonaccrual status during the fourth quarter. Legacy nonaccrual loans were approximately $2.6 million at December 31, 2016 versus $1.0 million as of September 30, 2016. Residential loans classified as nonaccrual were $3.5 million or 40.3% of the nonaccrual loans and commercial real estate loans classified as nonaccrual were $1.3 million or 14.9% of the nonaccrual loans as of December 31, 2016. At December 31, 2016, there remained approximately $15.2 million in nonaccretable discounts on loans previously acquired, of which $11.2 million are associated with the loans acquired in the Regent 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 December 31, 2016:

Net Interest Income and Margin

On a tax-equivalent basis Stonegate's net interest income for the three months ended December 31, 2016 was $27.1 million, an increase of approximately $4.6 million from the third quarter of 2016 and an increase of $5.3 million from the fourth quarter 2015. Average earning assets grew $372.6 million from the third quarter of 2016 to the fourth quarter of 2016, primarily a result of $258.8 million increase in loans and a $102.4 million increase in Stonegate's interest-earning deposits with other banks. The acquisition of Regent which closed on September 15, 2016, was the primary reason for the increase in the quarterly earning asset average. The yield on loans increased from 4.77% for the third quarter of 2016 to 5.10% for the fourth quarter of 2016, and was slightly higher than the 5.04% yield for the fourth quarter of 2015. The increase in the loan yield from the fourth quarter of 2016 was due to the increased level of accretable and nonaccretable discounts recognized in the fourth quarter of 2016 versus the third quarter of 2016. During the fourth quarter of 2016 discounts of approximately $1.4 million were recognized on loans which were paid off during the quarter.

The net interest margin on a tax-equivalent basis increased from 3.86% for the third quarter of 2016 to 4.01% for the fourth quarter of 2016. The net interest margin was 4.06% for the fourth quarter of 2015. The average yield on total earning assets was 4.49% for the fourth quarter of 2016 versus 4.32% for the third quarter of 2016. The average yield on interest-bearing liabilities increased three basis points from 0.61% from the third quarter of 2016 to 0.64% for the fourth quarter of 2016. Stonegate's cost of funds has increased from 0.44% for the December 2015 month-to-date average to 0.54% for the December 2016 month-to-date average.

Noninterest Income

Noninterest income of $2.5 million for the fourth quarter of 2016 increased from $2.1 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2016. The increase in noninterest income was primarily driven by gains on the sale of OREO of approximately $310,000.

Noninterest Expense

Noninterest expense for the three months ended December 31, 2016 increased to $16.9 million from $13.8 million at September 30, 2016, and was greater than the $12.3 million for the three months ended December 31, 2015. The increase in noninterest expense was primarily related to expenses incurred in connection with the Regent acquisition and conversion. 

Salaries and employee benefits increased to $9.1 million for the fourth quarter of 2016 versus $7.2 million for the third quarter of 2016. This compares with $6.7 million for the three months ended December 31, 2015. The increase in salaries and employee benefits in the fourth quarter of 2016 from the third quarter of 2016 was associated with the increase in staff from the Regent acquisition and the payments associated with the conversion of Regent.

Occupancy and equipment expenses increased slightly to $2.5 million for the three months ended December 31, 2016 versus $2.1 million for the three months ended September 30, 2106. The increase was primarily due to the additional offices acquired from Regent. Occupancy and equipment expenses were $2.2 million for the three months ended December 31, 2015. Expenses for merger-related branch closures in the fourth quarter of 2016 were approximately $48,000.

Data processing expenses were $1.7 million and $609,000 for the fourth and third quarters of 2016, respectively. Approximately $1.02 million of data processing expenses in the fourth quarter were related to the Regent data conversion. Additionally during the fourth quarter, approximately $109,000 of the $1.7 million were expenses associated with Regent's data processing prior to conversion. Professional fees for the three months ended December 31, 2016 were $782,000. This compared to professional fees of $1.4 million for the three months ended September 30, 2016 and $431,000 for the three months ended December 31, 2015. During the fourth quarter of 2016 there were $43,000 in legal and other professional fees for merger-related expenses as compared to $672,000 in the third quarter of 2016. There were no merger-related legal or professional fees during the fourth quarter of 2015.

The table below outlines the expenses for the quarters ended:

             
(in thousands of dollars)   December 31, 2016   September 30, 2016   December 31, 2015

During the second quarter of 2016, Stonegate announced that it had become a credit card issuer. As of December 31, 2016, there were a total of 1,130 credit cards issued of which 809 were consumer credit cards and 321 were commercial cards. Expenses associated with rolling out this new product line were approximately $175,000 in the fourth quarter of 2016 and total approximately $498,000 for the year. Looking forward to 2017, Stonegate anticipates additional costs in the first quarter associated with the pending Insignia Bank acquisition and, in the second quarter, with the Insignia data conversion.

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 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.
