Stonegate Bank Announces Second Quarter 2015 Operating Results

POMPANO BEACH, FL--(Marketwired - Jul 20, 2015) - Stonegate Bank (NASDAQ: SGBK) ("Stonegate") reported net income of $6.0 million for the second quarter of 2015 or $0.46 per diluted common share ($0.53 per share net operating income, a non-GAAP measurement described below), as compared to net income of $5.0 million for the first quarter of 2015 earnings or $0.39 per diluted common share ($0.44 per share net operating income). 

Net operating income is a non-GAAP financial measurement used by management to evaluate and monitor financial results of operations excluding certain non-recurring items such as merger and acquisition related expenses. A table reconciling GAAP to non-GAAP measures is presented below under the caption Non-GAAP Financial Measures - Reconciliation of GAAP to non-GAAP Measures.

Key highlights for the first quarter:

  • Loans: Total loans, net of discounts and deferred fees, grew $47.8 million during the second quarter of 2015 to $1.78 billion at June 30, 2015, a result of net organic loan growth in the second quarter. Commercial and industrial ("C&I") and commercial real estate ("CRE") each comprised 28% of new loan originations for the second quarter of 2015, based upon the outstanding balance as of June 30, 2015, while 18% was in construction and land development, 16% in residential, and the remaining balance in consumer and other loans. The production for the current quarter was 55% variable rate loans, mostly tied to LIBOR, and 45% fixed rate loans. 

  • Asset Quality: Total loans past due 30 - 89 days, excluding nonaccrual loans, were $2.7 million at June 30, 2015 unchanged from March 31, 2015. Nonaccrual loans were $4.6 million at June 30, 2015, or 0.26% of total loans, up from $4.5 million at March 31, 2015, or 0.26% of total loans. Other real estate owned was $2.4 million at June 30, 2015. 

  • Net Interest Income and Margin: Net interest income, on a tax equivalent basis, increased $1.8 million for the three months ended June 30, 2015 as compared to the three months ended March 31, 2015. Net interest income totaled $22.0 million for the three months ended June 30, 2015. The net interest margin, on a tax equivalent basis, increased 16 basis points to 4.31% for the second quarter of 2015 up from 4.15% for the first quarter of 2015. The increase in the margin was primarily a result of the increase in the average yield on loans.

  • Noninterest Expense: Noninterest expense decreased to $13.3 million for the three months ended June 30, 2015 from $13.5 million for the three months ended March 31, 2015. 

  • Capital: Stonegate remained well-capitalized as of June 30, 2015 with capital of $267.2 million as compared to $273.9 million at March 31, 2015. During the second quarter of 2015, Stonegate redeemed $12.75 million of preferred stock issued by the U.S. Treasury through its Small Business Lending Fund program ("SBLF"). These preferred shares were issued as part of the Florida Shores Bancorp, Inc. acquisition in early 2014. As of June 30, 2015, Stonegate's total risk-based capital ratio was 11.8%; Stonegate's Tier 1 and Common Equity Tier 1 capital ratio was 10.9%; and Stonegate's leverage capital ratio was 9.9%.

Credit Quality and Allowance for Loan Losses

As of June 30, 2015, Stonegate's past due and nonaccrual loans totaled $7.3 million and were 0.41% of total loans as compared to $7.2 million or 0.42% of total loans at March 31, 2015. Loans past due and nonaccrual acquired from Community Bank of Broward ("CBB") totaled $2.3 million as of June 30, 2015. Loans past due 30-89 days were $2.7 million at June 30, 2015, unchanged from March 31, 2015. Nonaccrual loans stood at $4.6 million at June 30, 2015, an increase of $100,000 from $4.5 million at March 31, 2015. This increase was primarily due to the addition of two loans for $758,000 acquired from CBB that were transferred to nonaccrual status; offset by the transfer of two loans for $468,000 to Other Real Estate Owned; and the placement of two loans for approximately $170,000 on accrual status. Legacy nonaccrual loans were approximately $221,000 as of June 30, 2015, virtually unchanged from March 31, 2015. Commercial real estate loans classified as nonaccrual were $3.3 million or 70.5% of the nonaccrual loans as June 30, 2015. As of June 30, 2015, Stonegate did not have any loans past due 90 days or more that were still accruing. As of June 30, 2015, there remained approximately $12.9 million in nonaccretable discounts on loans acquired. Stonegate does not have any loans under which it participates in a loss share arrangement. 

Nonperforming assets (nonaccrual loans and other real estate owned) were $7.1 million as of June 30, 2015, an increase of $1.9 million from March 31, 2015. Other real estate owned increased to $2.4 million as of June 30, 2015 as compared to $653,000 as of March 31, 2015. The increase was the result of the transfer of four loans during the quarter.

At June 30, 2015, the allowance for loan losses was $17.4 million, an increase of $646,000 from March 31, 2015. During the second quarter of 2015, recoveries totaled $121,000 and charge-offs were $25,000. Additionally, $550,000 was added to the allowance for loan losses through a provision expense. Specific reserves decreased to $894,000 at June 30, 2015 from $928,000 at March 31, 2015. The allowance for loan losses represented 0.98% and 0.97% of total loans as of June 30, 2015 and March 31, 2015, respectively. Additionally, the allowance represented 1.47% of total legacy loans as of June 30, 2015. Only legacy loans are covered by the allowance as acquired loans are recorded at their fair value on the date of acquisition and have not experienced significant deterioration above their initial estimate.

Net Interest Income and Margin

On a tax equivalent basis, Stonegate's net interest income for the three months ended June 30, 2015 was $22.0 million, an increase of approximately $1.8 million from the first quarter of 2015 and an increase of $8.0 million from the second quarter 2014. The increase from the first quarter of 2015 was a result of net organic loan growth while the increase from the second quarter of 2014 was primarily a result of the loans and other interest-earning assets acquired from CBB and organic growth. Average loans for the second quarter of 2015 were $1.74 billion as compared to $1.68 billion for the first quarter of 2015 and $1.19 billion for the second quarter of 2014. 

The net interest margin on a tax equivalent basis was 4.31% for the second quarter of 2015 as compared to 4.15% for the first quarter of 2015 and 3.61% for the second quarter of 2014. This represented an increase of 16 basis points from the first quarter of 2015. However, during the second quarter of 2015, Stonegate recognized approximately $130,000 in time deposit fair value amortization from the CBB acquisition that will not be repeated going forward. The net interest margin would have been 4.28% had this reduction in interest expense not occurred during the second quarter of 2015. Additionally, the net interest margin for the second quarter of 2015 was slightly higher due to recognition of nonaccretable discounts on several acquired loans. The average yield on total earning assets was 4.68% for the second quarter of 2015 versus 4.59% for the first quarter of 2015. This increase was due primarily to the increased average yield on loans from 5.24% for the first quarter 2015 to 5.36% for the quarter ended June 30, 2015. The average yield on paying liabilities decreased 7 basis points from 0.55% from the first quarter of 2015 to 0.48% for the second quarter of 2015. The yield on paying liabilities would have been 4 basis points higher at 0.52% if the reduction of interest expense had not occurred during the second quarter. Stonegate's cost of funds has declined from 0.50% for the June 2014 month-to-date average to 0.41% for the June 2015 month-to-date average.

Noninterest Income

Noninterest income of $1.6 million for the second quarter of 2015 increased from $1.5 million for the quarter ended March 31, 2015. The increase was attributable to an increase in service charges on deposit accounts.

Noninterest Expense

Noninterest expense for the three months ended June 30, 2015 decreased from $13.5 million at March 31, 2015 to $13.3 million and was also greater than the $12.4 million for the three months ended June 30, 2014. Total merger related expenses were approximately $1.0 million in the second quarter of 2015 as compared to $790,000 in the first quarter of 2015 and $2.2 million in the second quarter of 2014.

Salaries and employee benefits decreased from $7.0 million for the first quarter of 2015 to $6.8 million for the second quarter of 2015. For the three months ended June 30, 2014 salaries and employee benefits were $5.7 million. The decrease over March 31, 2015 was primarily the result of cost savings recognized as the result of the CBB conversion.

Occupancy and equipment expenses were $2.4 million, $2.1 million and $2.5 million for the three months ended June 30, 2015, March 31, 2015 and June 30, 2014, respectively. The increase, when compared to the first quarter of 2015, was due to the costs associated with a merger-related branch closing during the second quarter of 2015. Expenses for merger-related branch closures were approximately $810,000 during the second quarter of 2014.

Professional fees decreased for the three months ended June 30, 2015 to $657,000. This compared to professional fees of $965,000 for the three months ended March 31, 2015 and $725,000 for the three months ended June 30, 2014. There were no merger-related legal or professional fees during the second quarter of 2015 or 2014 as compared to approximately $434,000 during the first quarter of 2015. Legal costs and other costs associated with registering the Bank's common stock under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, and listing the Bank's common stock for trading on the Nasdaq Stock Market were approximately $180,000 during the second quarter of 2014.

The table below outlines the expenses for the quarters ended:

           
  June 30, 2015   March 31, 2015   June 30, 2014
(in thousands of dollars)

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 exclude the effects of the amortization of intangibles and 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 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.
