Columbia Banking System Announces First Quarter 2013 Earnings

Highlights for the quarter include strong loan growth, increased operating net interest margin and continued credit quality improvement

24 Apr, 2013, 16:00 ET from Columbia Banking System

TACOMA, Wash., April 24, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Melanie Dressel, President and Chief Executive Officer of Columbia Banking System and Columbia Bank (NASDAQ: COLB) ("Columbia") said today upon the release of Columbia's first quarter 2013 earnings, "The results for the quarter reflect our emphasis on strategic initiatives to further improve our core performance measures.  The 4% increase in our loan portfolio since the end of last year, as well as improved credit quality and reduced expenses, contributed significantly to our improved performance over the first quarter of last year."

  • Net income increased to $12.2 million, or 37%, compared to net income of $8.9 million for the first quarter 2012. Net income per diluted common share rose 41% to $0.31, as compared to $0.22 per common share for the first quarter 2012.  The increase in earnings was driven by substantial decreases in noninterest expense and provision for loan losses.
  • Noncovered loans increased 11% from the first quarter 2012 and 4% from year-end 2012.   Business loans also increased 4% since year-end 2012, and were up 12% from the first quarter 2012.
  • Credit metrics continued to improve; noncovered nonperforming assets decreased 7% from year-end 2012, and 43% from first quarter 2012.
  • Our merger with West Coast Bancorp was completed on April 1, 2013, adding approximately $2.4 billion in assets, resulting in a Pacific Northwest regional community bank with over $7 billion in assets and 157 branches throughout Washington and Oregon.

Significant Influences on the Quarter Ended March 31, 2013

Balance Sheet

Ms. Dressel commented, "We are pleased with our loan growth for the quarter, which continues the momentum generated by our bankers during the second half of last year."  Noncovered loans were $2.62 billion at March 31, 2013, up 4%, or $95.5 million, from $2.53 billion at prior year end.   The growth in noncovered loans for the quarter was centered in commercial business and commercial and multifamily residential real estate loans.  At March 31, 2013, Columbia's total assets were $4.91 billion, relatively unchanged from December 31, 2012.  Securities, including FHLB stock, were $1.03 billion at March 31, 2013, up 1% from $1.02 billion at prior year end.

Total deposits at March 31, 2013 were $4.05 billion, essentially unchanged from $4.04 billion at December 31, 2012.  Core deposits comprised 94% of total deposits, and were $3.80 billion at March 31, 2013, relatively unchanged from prior year end.

Asset Quality

At March 31, 2013, nonperforming noncovered assets were $44.9 million, a decrease of 7% from $48.5 million at December 31, 2012.  Nonaccrual loans declined $4.5 million during the first quarter.  The decrease in nonaccrual loans for the quarter was driven by payments of $3.6 million, charge-offs of $1.1 million, the return of $2.1 million of nonaccrual loans to accrual status, and $2.7 million of loans transferred to other real estate owned ("OREO"), partially offset by $5.0 million of new nonaccrual loans.  OREO and other personal property owned ("OPPO") increased by $892 thousand during the first quarter, as a result of loan foreclosures of $2.7 million, partially offset by $1.7 million in sales and $93 thousand in write-downs.  Columbia's allowance for loan losses to nonperforming, noncovered loans ratio was 155% for the quarter, up from 140% for the fourth quarter 2012 and 91% for the same period last year.

The following table sets forth, at the dates indicated, information regarding noncovered nonaccrual loans and total noncovered nonperforming assets.

For the first quarter of 2013, Columbia had a provision recapture of $1.0 million for noncovered loan losses.  For the comparable quarter last year the company made a provision of $4.5 million.  The provision recapture for noncovered loan losses during the current quarter reflected continued credit quality improvement within the noncovered loan portfolio as well as a $2.0 million recovery experienced during the current quarter related to a single borrowing relationship.

The allowance for noncovered loan losses to period end loans was 1.95% at March 31, 2013 compared to 2.07% at December 31, 2012.

Net Interest Margin ("NIM")

Columbia's net interest margin decreased to 5.06% for the first quarter of 2013, down from 6.67% for the same period last year and down from 5.15% for the fourth quarter of 2012.  Columbia's net interest margin is impacted significantly by the accounting for acquired loans. The net interest margin for the current quarter reflects the continuation of a moderating trend in the incremental accretion income related to the acquired loans, which was substantially higher during the first quarter of 2012, as shown in the table on the following page.

Columbia's operating net interest margin, which excludes incremental accretion income, interest reversals on nonaccrual loans and prepayment charges on Federal Home Loan Bank advances, increased to 4.21% for the first quarter of 2013, up from 4.14% for the fourth quarter of 2012.  The operating net interest margin for the current quarter improved due in part to the lower amount of cash held in overnight funds during the current quarter.  The operating net interest margin was down from 4.49% for the same period last year.  Compared to the prior year period, the operating net interest margin was negatively impacted by the overall decreasing trend in rates in both the loan and investment portfolios.  The average yield on investments declined as portfolio cash flows were reinvested at lower prevailing rates.  Also contributing to the lower operating net interest margin compared to the prior year was the additional cash held in overnight funds in anticipation of payment of the cash portion of the West Coast Bancorp merger consideration.

Ms. Dressel commented, "The seven basis point improvement in our operating net interest margin during the current quarter was the result of our NIM optimization efforts during the fourth quarter of 2012 and the early part of the current period.  As we fine-tuned our short-term cash needs to complete the West Coast Bancorp acquisition, we were able to lower our overnight funds balance.  The combination of these two items gave us a nice boost to the margin." 

The following table shows the impact to interest income and the related impact to the net interest margin resulting from accretion of income on acquired loan portfolios for the periods presented.

The incremental accretion income in the table above represents the amount of income recorded on acquired loans above the contractual rate stated in the individual loan notes and stems from the discount established at the time these loan portfolios were acquired.  At March 31, 2013, the accretable yield on acquired impaired loans was $158.8 million and the net discount on other acquired loans was $1.3 million.  The accretable yield and net discount represent income to be recorded by Columbia over the remaining life of the acquired loans.   Accretable yield is subject to change based upon expected future loan cash flows, which are re-measured by Columbia on a quarterly basis. 

The $980 thousand net provision for losses on covered loans in the current period is substantially offset by an 80%, or $784 thousand, benefit to the change in the FDIC loss-sharing asset, resulting in a negative net pre-tax earnings impact of $196 thousand. The provision for losses on covered loans was primarily due to decreased expected future cash flows as remeasured during the current quarter when compared to the prior quarter's remeasurement. 

The $10.5 million change in the FDIC loss-sharing asset in the current quarter negatively affected noninterest income and consists of $9.8 million of amortization expense and approximately $1.5 million of expense related to covered other real estate owned partially offset by the $784 thousand favorable adjustment described above.  Columbia recorded $2.5 million in additional FDIC loss-sharing asset amortization expense during the quarter due to the implementation of new accounting guidance related to indemnification asset accounting, which generally accelerates the amortization of the indemnification asset. 

First Quarter 2013 Operating Results

Quarter ended March 31, 2013

Net Interest Income

Net interest income for the first quarter of 2013 was $53.5 million, a decrease of $13.6 million from $67.1 million for the same quarter in 2012, primarily due to the accretion income recorded during the first quarter of 2012 related to our acquired loan portfolios. During the first quarter of 2013, the Company recorded $9.4 million in incremental accretion income on acquired loans compared to $22.4 million for the first quarter of 2012, a decrease of $13.0 million.

Compared to the fourth quarter of 2012, net interest income decreased $1.4 million from $54.9 million, due to $2.4 million in lower accretion income related to our acquired loan portfolios.

Noninterest Income

Total noninterest income was $1.7 million for the first quarter of 2013, compared to $9.6 million for the first quarter of 2012.  The decrease from the prior-year period was primarily due to the change in the FDIC loss-sharing asset, which accounted for $8.8 million of the decrease, partially offset by increases in service charges and other fees of $417 thousand and investment securities gains of $308 thousand.

The following table reflects the components of the change in the FDIC loss-sharing asset for the three month periods indicated.

Noninterest Expense

Total noninterest expense for the first quarter of 2013 was $38.0 million, a decrease of 14% from $44.4 million for the same quarter in 2012.  The decrease from the prior-year period was due to a decrease of $2.7 million in other noninterest expense as well as a decrease of $3.4 million in net cost (benefit) of operation of other real estate. The decrease in other noninterest expense was primarily due to the Company recording $2.2 million in OPPO write-downs during the prior year period. The decrease in net cost (benefit) of operation of OREO was due to substantial write-downs recorded in the prior year period.  These decreases were partially offset by a $441 thousand increase in legal and professional expenses, which includes $508 thousand during the current quarter related to the acquisition of West Coast Bancorp.  Total merger related expense for the current quarter was $723 thousand.

Compared to the fourth quarter of 2012, noninterest expense increased $249 thousand, or 1%.  The increase was attributable to an increase of $703 thousand in compensation and employee benefits. 

 

Recent Acquisition

On April 1, 2013, Columbia completed its acquisition of West Coast Bancorp, the parent company of West Coast Bank, creating the largest independent community bank in the Pacific Northwest.  With the completion of the merger, Columbia's total assets exceed $7 billion, with 157 branches in 38 counties.  Melanie Dressel commented, "We are delighted to welcome West Coast customers, employees, and shareholders to the Columbia family.  The combined company leverages the strengths of the two organizations, which we believe will provide added convenience for our customers and enhance shareholder value."
