Stonegate Bank Announces Third Quarter 2016 Operating Results

POMPANO BEACH, FL--(Marketwired - Oct 26, 2016) - Stonegate Bank (NASDAQ: SGBK) ("Stonegate") reported net income of $6.6 million for the third quarter of 2016 or $0.49 per diluted common share ($0.55 per common share net operating income, a non-GAAP measurement described below), as compared to net income of $6.7 million for the second quarter of 2016 or $0.51 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 third quarter:

  • Announced the signing of a definitive agreement to acquire all the operations of Insignia Bank ("Insignia"), located in Sarasota, Florida. As of June 30, 2016, Insignia had total assets of $248 million, total loans of $188 million and total deposits of $210 million.

  • Loans: Total loans, net of discounts and deferred fees, grew $328.8 million during the third quarter of 2016 to $2.29 billion at September 30, 2016, a result of loans acquired through the Regent Bancorp, Inc. and Regent Bank ("Regent") acquisition and $72.9 million of net organic loan growth during the quarter. Commercial real estate ("CRE") comprised 54% of new loan originations for the third quarter of 2016, based upon the outstanding balance as of September 30, 2016. Commercial and industrial ("C&I") accounted for 25% of the new loan originations; 13% of the new originations were residential loans; construction loans were 7% of new originations with the remaining balance in consumer and other loans. The loan production for the third quarter was comprised of 68% variable rate loans. Approximately 60% of the variable rate loans originated in the third quarter were tied to LIBOR. On an annualized basis organic loan growth was approximately 12.5%.

  • Asset Quality: Total loans past due, excluding nonaccrual loans, were $3.1 million at September 30, 2016, an increase of $284,000 from June 30, 2016. Nonaccrual loans were $9.0 million at September 30, 2016, or 0.39% of total loans, an increase from $4.1 million at June 30, 2016, or 0.21% of total loans. Other real estate owned was $4.8 million at September 30, 2016, an increase of $4.2 million from June 30, 2016. The increase in both nonaccrual loans and OREO was a result of the Regent acquisition. See Credit Quality and Allowance for Loan Losses for a detail analysis of past due and nonaccrual loans.

  • Net Interest Income and Margin: Net interest income, on a tax equivalent basis, totaled $22.4 million for the three months ended September 30, 2016, and represented an increase of $425,000 when compared to the three months ended June 30, 2016. The net interest margin, on a tax-equivalent basis, decreased to 3.86% for the third quarter of 2016 as compared to 3.97% for the second quarter of 2016 and a decrease over the net interest margin of 4.32% for the quarter ended September 30, 2015. The decrease in the margin from the second quarter of 2016 to the third quarter of 2016 was primarily a result of greater nonaccretable discounts recognized during the second quarter.

  • Noninterest Expense: Noninterest expense increased to $13.8 million for the three months ended September 30, 2016 from $12.8 million for the three months ended June 30, 2016. The increase in expenses was a result of expenses associated with the Regent and Insignia Bank acquisitions.

  • Capital: Stonegate remained well-capitalized as of September 30, 2016 with capital of $346.1 million as compared to $297.0 million at June 30, 2016. As of September 30, 2016, Stonegate's total risk-based capital ratio was 11.8%; Stonegate's Tier 1 and Common Equity Tier 1 capital ratios were each 10.8%; and Stonegate's leverage capital ratio was 10.1%.

Credit Quality and Allowance for Loan Losses

Loans past due 30-89 days were $2.65 million at September 30, 2016, a slight increase from $2.62 million at June 30, 2016. Loans past due 90 days or more and still accruing were $471,000 at September 30, 2016, compared to $218,000 at June 30, 2016. Legacy loans (i.e., loans made by Stonegate and not acquired by acquisition) which were past due loans totaled $1.7 million at September 30, 2016 and June 30, 2016. Nonaccrual loans stood at $9.0 million at September 30, 2016, an increase from $4.1 million at June 30, 2016. This increase was due to nonaccrual loans acquired in the Regent acquisition. Legacy nonaccrual loans were approximately $1.0 million at September 30, 2016 versus $1.5 million as of June 30, 2016. Residential loans classified as nonaccrual were $2.8 million or 30.7% of the nonaccrual loans and commercial real estate loans classified as nonaccrual were $2.1 million or 22.9% of the nonaccrual as of September 30, 2016. At September 30, 2016, there remained approximately $18.2 million in nonaccretable discounts on loans previously acquired, of which $12.0 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 September 30, 2016:

Net Interest Income and Margin

On a tax-equivalent basis, Stonegate's net interest income for the three months ended September 30, 2016 was $22.4 million, an increase of approximately $425,000 from the second quarter of 2016 and a decrease of $210,000 from the third quarter 2015. Average earning assets grew $84.4 million from the second quarter of 2016 to the third quarter of 2016, primarily a result of net organic growth in loans, offset by the decrease in Stonegate's interest-earning deposits with other banks. The acquisition of Regent occurred on September 15, 2016, and therefore increased the quarterly earning asset average by approximately $30.7 million. The yield on loans decreased from 5.00% for the second quarter of 2016 to 4.77% for the third quarter of 2016, and was lower than the 5.33% yield for the third quarter of 2015. The decrease in the loan yield from the second quarter of 2016 was due to the reduced level of accretable and nonaccretable discounts recognized in the third quarter of 2016 versus the second quarter of 2016. During the second quarter of 2016 discounts of approximately $708,000 were recognized on loans which were paid off during that quarter.

The net interest margin on a tax-equivalent basis decreased from 3.97% for the second quarter of 2016 to 3.86% for the third quarter of 2016. The net interest margin was 4.32% for the third quarter of 2015. The average yield on total earning assets was 4.32% for the third quarter of 2016 versus 4.42% for the second quarter of 2016. The average yield on paying liabilities increased two basis points from 0.59% from the second quarter of 2016 to 0.61% for the third quarter of 2016. Stonegate's cost of funds has increased from 0.43% for the September 2015 month-to-date average to 0.50% for the September 2016 month-to-date average.

Noninterest Income

Noninterest income of $2.1 million for the third quarter of 2016 increased from $1.7 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2016. The increase in noninterest income was primarily driven by interest rate swap fees which increased approximately $130,000 from the second quarter of 2016 to the third quarter of 2016.

Noninterest Expense

Noninterest expense for the three months ended September 30, 2016 increased to $13.8 million from $12.8 million at June 30, 2016, and was greater than the $12.4 million for the three months ended September 30, 2015. The increase in noninterest expense was primarily related to expenses incurred in connection with the Regent and Insignia Bank acquisitions.

Salaries and employee benefits increased to $7.2 million for the third quarter of 2016 versus $6.9 million for the second quarter of 2016. This compares with $6.8 million for the three months ended September 30, 2015. Approximately one-half of the increase in salaries and employee benefits in the third quarter of 2016 from the second quarter of 2016 was associated with the increase in staff from the Regent acquisition.

Occupancy and equipment expenses remained unchanged at $2.1 million for the three months ended September 30, 2016 and June 30, 2016. Occupancy and equipment expenses were $2.2 million for the three months ended September 30, 2015. Expenses for merger-related branch closures in the third quarter of 2016 were approximately $48,000.

Data processing expenses were $609,000 and $447,000 for the third and second quarters of 2016, respectively. Approximately $155,000 of data processing expenses in the third quarter were related to the Regent data conversion. Professional fees for the three months ended September 30, 2016 were $1.4 million. This compared to professional fees of $954,000 for the three months ended June 30, 2016 and $546,000 for the three months ended September 30, 2015. During the third quarter of 2016 there were $672,000 in legal and other professional fees for merger-related expenses as compared to $334,000 in the second quarter of 2016. There were no merger-related legal or professional fees during the third quarter of 2015.

The table below outlines the expenses for the quarters ended:

           
(in thousands of dollars) September 30, 2016   June 30, 2016   September 30, 2015

During the second quarter of 2016, Stonegate announced that it had become a credit card issuer. As of September 30, 2016, there were a total of 789 credit cards issued of which 573 were consumer credit cards and 216 were commercial cards. Expenses associated with rolling out this new product line were approximately $163,000 in the third quarter of 2016 and total approximately $323,000 for the year. Looking forward to the fourth quarter of 2016, Stonegate anticipates additional costs associated with the conversion of Regent and merger costs associated with the pending Insignia Bank acquisition. Additionally, due to the Regent acquisition late in the third quarter of 2016, expenses in the fourth quarter of 2016 are expected to be higher than in the third quarter of 2016.

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.
