"The fourth quarter of 2013 capped off a strong year of growth for Cole Taylor," said Mark A Hoppe, President and Chief Executive Officer of the Company.  "Our banking segment continued to expand in the fourth quarter, and for the full year achieved a 22% increase in loans outstanding.  This commercial loan growth demonstrated a broad geographical and product line diversification, with all of our commercial lending businesses experiencing double-digit growth for the year.  Reflecting on the quality of our loan portfolio, our 2013 loan loss provision of $2.4 million was the lowest since becoming a public company in 2002.  Our strong earnings over the last two years allowed us to continue to reduce our higher-cost funding, which is reflected in interest expense for the year being down 32% from 2012." 

"Despite an ongoing industry-wide slowdown in mortgage refinance activity, particularly in the second half of the year, our mortgage business demonstrated its adaptability by growing origination volume over 26% in 2013 and increasing market share," Hoppe added.  "The benefits of having a balanced mortgage banking operation were apparent as servicing revenue increased over 68% in the fourth quarter of 2013 from the third quarter."

Hoppe concluded, "Our integration planning with MB Financial, Inc. continues as anticipated with a dedicated team focused on the transition.  But it's important to note that during this period of change, our customers are, and always will be, our primary focus.  I am very grateful for the commitment our valued customers and our dedicated employees have demonstrated, particularly during this transition, which enabled us to grow relationships, to have a successful year and to be well positioned for the future."

FULL YEAR 2013 AND FOURTH QUARTER 2013 PERFORMANCE OVERVIEW

Results of Operations - Comparisons to Third Quarter 2013

Net income for the fourth quarter of 2013 was $15.0 million, compared to $14.2 million for the third quarter of 2013, an increase of 5.6%.  Net income applicable to common stockholders for the fourth quarter of 2013 was $10.1 million, compared to $10.6 million for the third quarter of 2013.  In the fourth quarter of 2013, there were two quarterly dividends of $2.0 million each recorded on the Series A Preferred Stock, as compared to only one quarterly dividend recorded in the third quarter of 2013. 

Income before income taxes was $21.7 million for the fourth quarter of 2013, compared to $23.7 million for the third quarter of 2013, a decrease of 8.4%.  The decrease was primarily due to a $3.3 million increase in occupancy expense related to the pending merger with MB Financial, Inc., a $3.1 million increase in nonperforming asset expense primarily due to resolutions of certain other real estate owned properties and a $800,000 increase in the loan loss provision.  These increases in expense were partially offset by a $5.8 million increase in gain on sales of investment securities as part of a planned reduction in the investment portfolio. 

Pre-tax, pre-provision operating earnings totaled $19.1 million for the fourth quarter of 2013, compared to $23.1 million for the third quarter of 2013, a decrease of 17.3%.  The decrease was primarily due to an increase in costs related to the pending merger with MB Financial, Inc.  

Income tax expense was $6.7 million for the fourth quarter of 2013, compared to $9.5 million for the third quarter of 2013, a decrease of 29.5%.  The quarter over quarter decrease in income tax expense is the result of a reduction in income before income taxes and the year-to-date impact of changes in the applicable statutory state income tax rates combined with fluctuations in the levels of income earned in the states where income tax returns are required to be filed.   

Revenue(4)

Revenue totaled $79.0 million for the fourth quarter of 2013, compared to $78.4 million for the third quarter of 2013, an increase of 0.8%.    

Net interest income was $45.2 million for the fourth quarter of 2013, as compared to $46.0 million for the third quarter of 2013.  The decrease in net interest income reflected a decrease in interest income, which was primarily the result of a volume-related reduction in consumer mortgage loans held for sale and a planned reduction in the investment securities portfolio.  Partially offsetting the decrease in interest income was reduced interest expense primarily due to lower rates paid on deposit balances and a reduction in short-term borrowings.        

Noninterest income, excluding investment security gains and losses, was $33.7 million for the fourth quarter of 2013, compared to $32.4 million for the third quarter of 2013, an increase of 4.0%.  The increase was primarily due to a $2.0 million increase in mortgage banking revenue driven by increased servicing revenue partially offset by lower origination income.  Servicing revenue increased $5.3 million in the fourth quarter of 2013, due to growth in the mortgage servicing right ("MSR") assets due to the combination of retention of MSR's on loans originated by Cole Taylor Mortgage, purchases of MSR's and an increase in the valuation of the MSR asset primarily due to an increase in interest rates during the fourth quarter.  Partially offsetting these increases was a volume-related decrease in mortgage origination income of $3.3 million.  Total mortgage originations were $1.17 billion in the fourth quarter of 2013, down 26.8% from the third quarter.       

Noninterest Expense

Noninterest expense, excluding nonperforming asset expense, was $59.8 million for the fourth quarter of 2013, compared to $55.4 million for the third quarter of 2013, an increase of $4.4 million, or 7.9%.  The increase was primarily due to $3.3 million in early lease termination expense and other costs related to the pending merger with MB Financial, Inc.  

Results of Operations - Full Year 2013

Net income for 2013 was $62.0 million, compared to $61.9 million for 2012, an increase of 0.2%.  Net income applicable to common stockholders for 2013 was $46.1 million, compared to $54.9 million for 2012. 

Income before income taxes was $99.9 million for 2013, compared to $103.6 million for 2013, a decrease of 3.6%.  The decrease was primarily due to a $36.9 million increase in noninterest expense, partially offset by a $23.1 million increase in net interest income and a $7.2 million decrease in provision for loan losses. 

Pre-tax, pre-provision operating earnings totaled $102.5 million for 2013, compared to $120.5 million for 2012, a decrease of 14.9%.  The decrease was primarily due to a $43.4 million increase in noninterest expense, excluding nonperforming asset expense and early extinguishment of debt expense, partially offset by a $23.1 million increase in net interest income.    

Revenue

Revenue totaled $325.0 million for 2013, compared to $299.6 million for 2012, an increase of 8.5%.    

Net interest income was $173.0 million for 2013, as compared to $149.9 million for 2012, an increase of $23.1 million or 15.4% due to both increased interest income and lower interest expense.  Interest income increased $11.5 million in 2013 primarily due to growth in average earning assets for the year including loans of $385.5 million, loans held for sale of $188.7 million and investment securities of $169.1 million.  The tax equivalent yield on earning assets decreased 29 basis points to 3.75% in 2013, which partially offset the increase in average asset balances.  Interest expense decreased $11.6 million in 2013 primarily due the retirement of the 10% subordinated notes in September 2012 and the 8% subordinated notes in June 2013 and lower average rates and balances on time deposits.  The total yield on interest-bearing liabilities fell 43 basis points to 0.62% in 2013.             

Noninterest income, excluding investment security gains and losses, was $152.0 million for 2013, compared to $149.6 million for 2012, an increase of $2.4 million or 1.6%.  The increase was primarily due to a $2.2 million increase in other derivative income due to customer swap fees and a $2.2 million increase in other noninterest income partially offset by a $2.6 million decrease in mortgage banking revenue due to lower mortgage origination income.   

Noninterest Expense

Noninterest expense, excluding nonperforming asset expense and early extinguishment of debt expense, was $222.5 million for 2013, compared to $179.1 million for 2012 an increase of $43.4 million, or 24.2%.  The increase in noninterest expense consisted of a $17.6 million increase in salaries and employee benefits, a $8.2 million increase in outside services, a $6.3 million increase in other noninterest expense and a $5.4 million increase in occupancy of premises, furniture and equipment expense. 

The $17.6 million increase in salaries and employee benefits in 2013 was comprised of a $25.4 million increase in salaries, taxes and benefits primarily due to additional employees added to Cole Taylor Mortgage to support increased origination volume and the establishment of its in-house servicing platform, partially offset by an $8.6 million decrease in performance-based incentive compensation expense.

Outside service expense increased $8.2 million in 2013 primarily due to increased mortgage loan origination volume at Cole Taylor Mortgage along with increased subservice fees and other volume driven servicing-related expenses as a result of the increased size of the servicing platform.  

Other noninterest expense increased $6.3 million in 2013 primarily related to an increase in volume driven expenses from the growth of mortgage originations, the expansion of mortgage retail offices and the creation of the new in-house servicing operation.

Preferred Dividends and Discounts

As the table below indicates, the increase in preferred dividends and discounts in 2013 was primarily due to the issuance of the Series A Preferred stock in November 2012.  In addition, the quarterly dividend on the Series A Preferred stock of $2.0 million, which typically would have been recorded in the first quarter of 2014, was instead declared and recorded in the fourth quarter of 2013, as required by the Series A Preferred terms and in connection with the repurchase of the Series B Preferred stock.  The Series B Preferred stock was fully repaid in 2013 and has been cancelled.

Credit Quality

Loan Portfolio Performance and Credit Quality

Total commercial criticized and classified loans were $188.0 million at December 31, 2013, as compared to $151.7 million at September 30, 2013 and $131.6 million at December 31, 2012.  The increase in criticized and classified loans in the fourth quarter of 2013 was largely attributable to downgrades in the commercial and industrial loan portfolio.       

Nonperforming loans were $81.8 million at December 31, 2013, as compared to $86.0 million at September 30, 2013, and $59.5 million at December 31, 2012.  The decrease in the fourth quarter of 2013 was due to charge-offs and pay downs of certain nonperforming loans.  

OREO and repossessed assets were $10.0 million at December 31, 2013, down from $14.4 million at September 30, 2013 and $24.3 million at December 31, 2012.  The decrease was primarily due to sales as we continue to actively manage the resolution process.  

Total nonperforming assets were $91.9 million at December 31, 2013, compared to $100.4 million at September 30, 2013 and $83.8 million at December 31, 2012.  Nonperforming assets to total assets were 1.62% at December 31, 2013, compared to 1.67% at September 30, 2013 and 1.44% at December 31, 2012.   

Allowance and Provision for Loan Losses

The allowance for loan losses was $81.9 million at December 31, 2013, compared to $85.0 million at September 30, 2013 and $82.2 million at December 31, 2012.  The decrease from September 30, 2013 was primarily due to charge-offs of loans which had specific reserves.  The allowance for loan losses as a percent of nonperforming loans was 100.05% at December 31, 2013, as compared to 98.80% at September 30, 2013 and 138.05% at December 31, 2012.  

The provision for loan losses was $1.1 million for the fourth quarter of 2013, compared to $300,000 for the third quarter of 2013 and $1.2 million in the fourth quarter of 2012.         

Balance Sheet

Assets

Total assets at December 31, 2013 were $5.69 billion, compared to $6.01 billion at September 30, 2013.

Investment securities were $1.12 billion at December 31, 2013, down $300.2 million from $1.42 billion at September 30, 2013 as a result of planned sales.      

Loans held for sale were $473.9 million at December 31, 2013, a decrease of 4.9% from September 30, 2013.  The decrease was primarily the result of reduced mortgage origination volume for the fourth quarter by Cole Taylor Mortgage.     

Net loans at December 31, 2013 were $3.57 billion, up $22.9 million from $3.54 billion at September 30, 2013.  Commercial and Industrial loans were $1.94 billion at December 31, 2013, an increase of 1.7% from $1.90 billion at September 30, 2013.  This increase was driven primarily by an increase in new loans from the Cole Taylor Equipment Finance business line.  Commercial real estate secured loans were $1.12 billion at December 31, 2013, an increase of 1.0% from September 30, 2013.  Consumer loans, which consist primarily of residential mortgages, were $301.4 million at December 31, 2013, down $47.0 million from September 30, 2013, as a portion of the residential mortgage portfolio was reclassified as held for sale.     

The MSR asset increased $31.9 million in the fourth quarter to $216.1 million as of December 31, 2013.  The unpaid principal balance of loans serviced was $18.5 billion as of December 31, 2013, up 12.6% from September 30, 2013.  The Company invests in MSR's and retains servicing on most mortgage loans originated as part of its strategy to diversify the revenue streams of Cole Taylor Mortgage.      

Liabilities and Stockholders' Equity

Total liabilities at December 31, 2013 were $5.22 billion, as compared to $5.47 billion at September 30, 2013.

Total deposits were $3.65 billion at December 31, 2013, compared to $3.70 billion at September 30, 2013.  Total deposits decreased in the fourth quarter primarily due to the on-going planned reduction in time deposits.    

Average total deposits for the fourth quarter of 2013 increased slightly to $3.87 billion from $3.83 billion in the third quarter of 2013, primarily due to growth in commercial interest-bearing demand deposits.

Short-term borrowings decreased $187.3 million in the fourth quarter to $1.38 billion as of December 31, 2013, which was attributable to reduced funding needs as a result of the planned reduction in the investment portfolio.

Total stockholders' equity decreased $80.2 million from $544.7 million at September 30, 2013 to $464.6 million at December 31, 2013, primarily due to the repurchase and redemption of all the remaining outstanding Series B Preferred shares in the fourth quarter, which totaled $78.6 million for the fourth quarter of 2013, including accrued dividends to the date of repurchase or redemption, as applicable, and was planned in conjunction with the pending merger with MB Financial, Inc.  In addition, accumulated other comprehensive income decreased $11.6 million resulting from a reduction in the unrealized gain on available for sale securities due to an increase in interest rates in the fourth quarter and the realized gains on sale of investment securities.  These declines were partially offset by retaining the net income available to common stockholders earned in the fourth quarter.

Capital

At December 31, 2013, the Company's Tier I Risk Based Capital ratio was 11.40%, its Total Risk Based Capital ratio was 12.65% and its Tier I Capital to Average Assets leverage ratio was 9.18%.

Each of these ratios exceeded the regulatory requirements for well-capitalized banks of 6.00% for the Tier I Risk Based Capital ratio, 10.00% for the Total Risk Based Capital ratio and 5.00% for the Tier I Capital to Average Assets leverage ratio.

These forward-looking statements are based on information currently available to us and are subject to a number of risks, uncertainties and other factors that could cause our actual results, performance, prospects or opportunities in 2014 and beyond to differ materially from those expressed in, or implied by, these forward-looking statements.

These risks, uncertainties and other factors include, without limitation:

  • The Agreement and Plan of Merger (the "Merger Agreement") with MB Financial, Inc. ("MB") may be terminated in accordance with its terms, and the merger contemplated thereby (the "Merger") may not be completed.
  • Termination of the Merger Agreement could negatively impact us.
  • We may be subject to business uncertainties and contractual restrictions while the Merger is pending.
  • Two stockholder actions have been filed against us, our Board of Directors and MB challenging the Merger, and additional suits may be filed in the future.  An adverse ruling in any of these lawsuits may prevent the Merger from being completed or from being completed within the expected timeframe.
  • The Merger Agreement limits our ability to pursue an alternative acquisition proposal and requires us to pay a termination fee of $20.0 million under limited circumstances relating to alternative acquisition proposals.
  • We may be materially and adversely affected by the highly regulated environment in which we operate.
  • Increasing dependence on our mortgage business may increase volatility in our consolidated revenues and earnings, and our residential mortgage lending profitability could be significantly reduced if we are not able to originate and sell mortgage loans at profitable margins.
  • Changes in interest rates may change the value of our MSR portfolio, which may increase the volatility of our earnings.
  • Certain hedging strategies that we use to manage investment in MSR's, mortgage loans held for sale and interest rate lock commitments may be ineffective to offset any adverse changes in the fair value of these assets due to changes in interest rates and market liquidity.
  • Our mortgage loan repurchase reserve for losses could be insufficient.
  • A significant increase in certain loan balances associated with our mortgage business may result in liquidity risk related to the funding of these loans.
  • We are subject to certain operational risks, including, but not limited to, data processing system failures and errors and customer or employee fraud. Our controls and procedures may fail or be circumvented.

  • The preparation of our consolidated financial statements requires us to make estimates and judgments, including the use of models, which are subject to an inherent degree of uncertainty and which may differ from actual results.
  • We must manage credit risk and, if we are unable to do so, our allowance for loan losses may prove to be insufficient to absorb losses in our loan portfolio, which could have a material adverse effect on us.
  • We have counterparty risk and therefore we may be materially and adversely affected by the soundness of other financial institutions.
  • We are subject to lending concentration risks.
  • We are subject to mortgage asset concentration risks.
  • Our business strategy is dependent on our continued ability to attract, develop and retain highly qualified and experienced personnel in senior management and customer relationship positions.

The Company has identified two operating segments for purposes of financial reporting: Banking and Mortgage Banking. The Banking operating segment includes commercial banking, asset-based lending, equipment finance, retail banking and all other functions that support those units. The Mortgage Banking operating segment originates mortgage loans for sale to investors and for the Company's portfolio through its retail and third party channels. This segment also services mortgage loans for various investors and for loans owned by the Company. Segment results are presented based on our management accounting practices. The information presented in our segment reporting is based on internal allocations, which involve management judgment and is subject to periodic adjustments and enhancements. In addition, the Company utilizes an Other category that includes subordinated debt expense, certain parent company activities, expenses related to the pending merger with MB Financial, and residual income tax expense or benefit.

The Company's accounting and reporting policies conform to U.S. generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP") and general practice within the banking industry. Management uses certain non-GAAP financial measures to evaluate the Company's financial performance and has provided the non-GAAP measures of pre-tax, pre-provision operating earnings and of revenue. In the pre-tax, pre-provision operating earnings non-GAAP financial measure, the provision for loan losses, nonperforming asset expense and certain non-recurring items, such as gains and losses on investment securities and early extinguishment of debt are excluded from the determination of operating results. The non-GAAP measure of revenue is calculated as the sum of net interest income and noninterest income adjusted by investment securities gains and losses. Management believes that these measures are useful because they provide a more comparable basis for evaluating financial performance from period to period.
