Union First Market Bankshares Reports First Quarter Results

Apr 22, 2014, 08:00 ET from Union First Market Bankshares Corporation

RICHMOND, Va., April 22, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Union First Market Bankshares Corporation (the "Company" or "Union") (NASDAQ: UBSH) today reported net income of $7.8 million and earnings per share of $0.17 for its first quarter ended March 31, 2014.  Excluding after-tax acquisition-related expenses of $9.0 million, operating earnings(1) for the quarter were $16.8 million and operating earnings per share(1) was $0.36.  The quarterly results represent an increase of $8.1 million, or 92.2%, in operating earnings from the prior quarter.  Operating earnings per share of $0.36 for the current quarter increased $0.01, or 2.9%, from the most recent quarter. These first quarter financial results include the full quarter financial results of StellarOne Corporation ("StellarOne"), which the Company acquired on January 1, 2014. 

"Our first quarter operating results demonstrate the significant earnings capacity we envisioned the combination of Union and StellarOne would produce as the largest community banking institution headquartered in Virginia," said G. William Beale, president and chief executive officer of Union First Market Bankshares. "Our merger integration work continues to go well and we are on track for systems conversions and branch consolidations to occur in the second quarter. Our teammates have been working tirelessly to ensure a smooth integration for our customers, and I want to thank them for their commitment during this transition period.  I am more excited than ever about the future of Union and our ability to continue to deliver a best-in-class customer experience, offer superior financial services and solutions, provide a rewarding experience for our teammates and generate top-tier financial performance for our shareholders."

Select highlights for the first quarter include:

  • Operating earnings(1) for the community bank segment, which excludes after-tax acquisition-related expenses of $9.0 million, were $18.2 million, or $0.39 per share. 
  • The mortgage segment reported a net loss of $1.4 million, or $0.03 per share.
  • Operating Return on Average Tangible Common Equity(1) ("ROTCE")  was 10.33% for the quarter ended March 31, 2014 compared to operating ROTCE(1) of 9.43% for the fourth quarter of 2013.  The operating ROTCE(1) of the community bank segment was 11.44%.
  • Operating Return on Average Assets(1) ("ROA") was 0.94% for the quarter ended March 31, 2014 compared to operating ROA(1) of 0.85% for the fourth quarter of 2013.   The operating ROA(1) of the community bank segment was 1.02%.
  • Operating efficiency ratio(1) declined to 68.4% for the current quarter from 71.6% in the prior quarter.  The operating efficiency ratio for the community bank segment was 64.6%.
  • On January 31, 2014, the Company's Board of Directors authorized a share repurchase program to purchase up to $65.0 million worth of the Company's common stock on the open market or in privately negotiated transactions. The repurchase program is authorized through December 31, 2015.  As of April 17, 2014, approximately 822,000 common shares had been repurchased and approximately $44.3 million remained available under the repurchase program.

NET INTEREST INCOME

Tax-equivalent net interest income was $65.7 million, an increase of $25.7 million from the fourth quarter of 2013, a result of a $2.7 billion increase in average interest-earning assets and a $2.2 billion increase in average interest-bearing liabilities from the full quarter impact of the StellarOne acquisition.  The first quarter tax-equivalent net interest margin decreased by 13 bps to 4.14% compared to 4.27% in the previous quarter.    Core tax-equivalent net interest margin (which excludes the 15 bps impact of acquisition accounting accretion) decreased by 25 basis points from 4.24% in the previous quarter to 3.99%.  The decrease in the core tax-equivalent net interest margin was principally due to a decrease in earning asset yields (-26 bps), outpacing the decline in cost of funds (+1 bps).  The declines in net interest margin and earning asset yields are primarily driven by the impact of the StellarOne acquisition in the current quarter.

The Company continues to believe that net interest margin will decline modestly over the next several quarters as decreases in earning asset yields are projected to outpace declines in interest-bearing liabilities rates.

The Company's fully taxable equivalent net interest margin includes the impact of acquisition accounting fair value adjustments.  The first quarter 2014 and remaining estimated discount/premium and net accretion impact are reflected in the following table (dollars in thousands):

ASSET QUALITY/LOAN LOSS PROVISION

Overview During the first quarter, the Company had a net loan recovery and reduced levels of provision when compared to the prior quarter and the same quarter of the prior year.  There were declines in several asset quality ratios, including nonperforming assets to total loans, accruing loans past due 90 days or more to total loans, allowance to total loans, and allowance to total loans, adjusted for acquisition accounting, while the coverage ratio of allowance to nonaccrual loans remained high.  Levels of nonaccrual loans and other real estate owned ("OREO") remained stable with only slight increases due to the acquisition of StellarOne.  The magnitude of any change in the real estate market and its impact on the Company is still largely dependent upon continued recovery of residential housing and commercial real estate and the pace at which the local economies in the Company's operating markets improve.  All metrics discussed below exclude loans acquired with deteriorated credit quality ("PCI") aggregating $130.3 million (net of fair value mark).

Nonperforming Assets ("NPAs") At March 31, 2014, nonperforming assets totaled $52.5 million, a decline of $6.4 million, or 10.8%, from a year ago and an increase of $3.4 million, or 6.9%, from December 31, 2013.  In addition, NPAs as a percentage of total outstanding loans declined 98 basis points from 1.98% a year earlier and decreased 62 basis points from 1.62% last quarter to 1.00% in the current quarter.    The following table shows a summary of asset quality balances at the quarter ended (dollars in thousands):

Of the $5.4 million in additions to OREO in the current quarter, $4.3 million related to the acquisition of StellarOne.

Past Due Loans At March 31, 2014, loans past due 90 days or more and accruing interest totaled $7.2 million, or 0.14%, of total loans, compared to $6.2 million, or 0.21%, a year ago and $6.7 million, or 0.22%, at December 31, 2013. 

Charge-offs  For the quarter ended March 31, 2014, net loan recoveries were $772,000, or (0.06%), on an annualized basis, compared to net charge-offs of $2.6 million, or 0.35%, for the same quarter last year and $4.9 million, or 0.65%, for the fourth quarter of 2013.  The net recovery in the current quarter largely relates to one recovery of $1.2 million on a commercial loan previously charged off.

Provision The provision for loan losses for the current quarter was $0, a decrease of $2.1 million from the same quarter a year ago and a decrease of $1.2 million from the previous quarter.  The decrease in provision for loan losses in the current quarter compared to the prior periods is driven by improving asset quality, the impact of lower historical loss factors, and the current quarter's net loan recovery. 

Allowance for Loan Losses  The allowance for loan losses ("ALL") increased $772,000 from December 31, 2013 to $30.9 million at March 31, 2014.  The ALL as a percentage of the total loan portfolio, adjusted for purchase accounting (non-GAAP), was 1.07% at March 31, 2014, a decrease from 1.32% at March 31, 2013 and 1.10% from the prior quarter.    The allowance for loan losses as a percentage of the total loan portfolio was 0.59% at March 31, 2014, 1.16% at March 31, 2013, and 0.99% at December 31, 2013.  The decrease in the allowance-related ratios was primarily attributable to improving credit quality metrics and the acquisition of StellarOne. In acquisition accounting, there is no carryover of previously established allowance for loan losses.

The nonaccrual loan coverage ratio was 181.4% at March 31, 2014, compared to 149.4% from the same quarter last year and 200.4% at December 31, 2013.  The current level of the allowance for loan losses reflects specific reserves related to nonperforming loans, current risk ratings on loans, net charge-off activity, loan growth, delinquency trends, and other credit risk factors that the Company considers important in assessing the adequacy of the allowance for loan losses. 

NONINTEREST INCOME

Noninterest income increased $5.8 million, or 69.5%, to $14.2 million from $8.4 million in the prior quarter.  The significant majority of this increase is in customer related noninterest income (services charges on deposit accounts, debit card interchange income, and income from wealth management services) and is due to the acquisition of StellarOne that occurred on January 1, 2014.  Gains on sales of mortgage loans, net of commissions, increased $978,000, or 74.1%, from the prior quarter primarily related to increased margins, lower indemnifications charges, and the inclusion of StellarOne's mortgage unit results in the current quarter, partially offset by declines in mortgage loan originations.  Mortgage loan originations decreased by $7.1 million, or 4.6%, in the current quarter to $149.1 million from $156.2 million in the fourth quarter of 2013.  Originations from Union's legacy mortgage segment declined $40.3 million, or 25.8%, from the prior quarter which was partially offset by the addition of StellarOne's mortgage operation.  Of the loan originations in the current quarter, 30.4% were refinances, which was consistent with the prior quarter.    

NONINTEREST EXPENSE  

Noninterest expense increased $32.4 million, or 91.5%, to $67.8 million from $35.4 million when compared to the prior quarter.  Excluding acquisition-related costs, which were $13.2 million and $739,000 in the current and previous quarters, respectively, noninterest expense increased $20.0 million, or 57.7%, compared to the prior quarter.  The increase in noninterest expense during the first quarter of 2014 is primarily related to the acquisition of StellarOne.  The Company's operating efficiency ratio declined to 68.4% from 71.6% in the prior quarter.

BALANCE SHEET

At March 31, 2014, total assets were $7.3 billion, an increase of $3.1 billion from December 31, 2013 reflecting the impact of the StellarOne acquisition.

On January 1, 2014 the Company acquired StellarOne. Below is a summary of the transaction and related impact on the Company's balance sheet:

  • The fair value of assets acquired equaled $2.959 billion and the fair value of liabilities assumed equaled $2.647 billion.
  • Total goodwill arising from the transaction equaled $237.5 million.
  • Gross loans acquired equaled $2.283 billion with a fair value of $2.239 billion.
  • Total deposits acquired equaled $2.469 billion with a fair value of $2.480 billion.

At March 31, 2014 loans net of unearned income were $5.3 billion, an increase of $2.3 billion from December 31, 2013.  On a proforma basis, including StellarOne loan balances, period end loans balances were flat when compared to December 31, 2013 while average loans grew approximately $41.7 million, or 3.2% (annualized), to $5.3 billion since January 1, 2014.  At March 31, 2014, total deposits were $5.7 billion, an increase of $2.4 billion from December 31, 2013.  On a proforma basis, including StellarOne deposit balances, average deposits declined $54.5 million, or 3.8% (annualized) to $5.6 billion since January 1, 2014.  The decline in average deposits was driven by a decline in average time deposits partially offset by an increase in average money market balances.

The Company's capital ratios continued to be considered "well capitalized" for regulatory purposes.  The Company's estimated ratios of total capital to risk-weighted assets and Tier 1 capital to risk-weighted assets as of March 31, 2014 were 13.69% and 13.02%, respectively. As of December 31, 2013, the Company's ratio of total capital to risk-weighted assets and Tier 1 capital to risk-weighted assets were 14.17% and 13.05%, respectively.  The Company's common equity to asset ratios at March 31, 2014 and December 31, 2013 were 13.47% and 10.49%, respectively, while its tangible common equity to tangible assets ratio was 9.29% and 8.94% at March 31, 2014 and December 31, 2013, respectively. 

COMMUNITY BANK SEGMENT INFORMATION

The community bank segment reported net income of $9.2 million for first quarter, and includes the full-quarter impact of the StellarOne acquisition. Excluding after-tax acquisition-related expenses of $9.0 million, operating earnings increased $7.6 million from the prior quarter to $18.2 million.  As previously discussed, the provision for loan losses declined $1.2 million from the prior quarter due to continued improvements in asset quality and a large recovery of a loan that was previously charged-off.  Net interest income was $63.5 million, an increase of $25.2 million from the fourth quarter of 2013. The increase in net interest income was driven by the StellarOne acquisition.  

Noninterest income increased $4.8 million from $7.2 million in the prior quarter to $12.1 million. The significant majority of this increase is in customer related noninterest income (services charges on deposit accounts, debit card interchange income, and income from wealth management services) and is due to the previously discussed acquisition of StellarOne.  Noninterest expense increased $32.2 million from $31.0 million to $63.2 million.  Excluding acquisition-related costs of $13.2 million, noninterest expense increased $19.8 million, or 65.4%, compared to the prior quarter.  The increase in noninterest expense is largely related to the acquisition of StellarOne.   The community banking segment's operating efficiency ratio was 64.6% compared to 64.5% in the prior quarter.    

MORTGAGE SEGMENT INFORMATION

The mortgage segment reported a net loss of $1.4 million for the first quarter as elevated expense levels resulting from excess loan origination processing capacity, restructuring charges, and project related costs outpaced revenue generated by seasonally low mortgage loan origination volumes.  The net loss declined by $0.5 million from the prior quarter as gains on sales of mortgage loans, net of commissions, increased $978,000, or 74.1%, primarily related to lower indemnification charges, increased net gain on sale margins and the inclusion of StellarOne's mortgage unit in the current quarter.  The positive impact of these items was partially offset by declines in mortgage loan originations from the prior quarter.  Mortgage loan originations decreased by $7.1 million, or 4.6%, in the current quarter to $149.1 million from $156.2 million in the fourth quarter of 2013, inclusive of the StellarOne mortgage unit in the current quarter.  Originations from Union's legacy mortgage segment declined $40.3 million, or 25.8%, from the prior quarter reflective of sluggish seasonal demand for mortgage financing.  Of the originations in the current quarter, 30.4% were refinances, which was consistent with the prior quarter.  On a linked quarter basis, the mortgage segment incurred higher noninterest expenses due to the inclusion of the StellarOne mortgage unit in the current quarter.  Noninterest expenses incurred by Union's legacy mortgage segment declined from the prior quarter as a result of its efforts to recalibrate its cost structure to align with lower mortgage origination levels.

NON-GAAP MEASURES

In reporting the results of March 31, 2014, the Company has provided supplemental performance measures on an operating or tangible basis.  Operating measures exclude acquisition costs unrelated to the Company's normal operations.  The Company believes these measures are useful to investors as they exclude non-operating adjustments resulting from acquisition activity and allow investors to see the combined economic results of the organization.  Tangible common equity is used in the calculation of certain capital and per share ratios. The Company believes tangible common equity and the related ratios are meaningful measures of capital adequacy because they provide a meaningful base for period-to-period and company-to-company comparisons, which the Company believes will assist investors in assessing the capital of the Company and its ability to absorb potential losses.

These measures are a supplement to GAAP used to prepare the Company's financial statements and should not be viewed as a substitute for GAAP measures.  In addition, the Company's non-GAAP measures may not be comparable to non-GAAP measures of other companies.

(1)  The core net interest margin, fully taxable equivalent ("FTE") excludes the impact of acquisition accounting accretion and amortization adjustments in net interest income.

(2) The allowance for loan losses, adjusted for purchase accounting (non-GAAP) ratio includes an adjustment for the credit mark on purchased performing loans.  The purchased performing loans are reported net of the related credit mark in loans, net of unearned income, on the balance sheet; therefore, the credit mark is added back to the balance to represent the total loan portfolio.  The adjusted allowance for loan losses, including the credit mark, represents the total reserve on the Company's loan portfolio.  GAAP requires the acquired allowance for loan losses not be carried over in an acquisition or merger.  The Company believes the presentation of the allowance for loan losses, adjusted for purchase accounting ratio is useful to investors because the acquired loans were purchased at a market discount with no allowance for loan losses carried over to the Company and the credit mark on the purchased performing loans represents the allowance associated with those purchased loans.  The Company believes that this measure is a better reflection of the reserves on the Company's loan portfolio.

(3) The Company has provided supplemental performance measures which the Company believes may be useful to investors as they exclude non-operating adjustments resulting from acquisition and allow investors to see the combined economic results of the organization. These measures are a supplement to GAAP used to prepare the Company's financial statements and should not be viewed as a substitute for GAAP measures. In addition, the Company's non-GAAP measures may not be comparable to non-GAAP measures of other companies.

(4) Tangible common equity is used in the calculation of certain capital and per share ratios.  The Company believes tangible common equity and the related ratios are meaningful measures of capital adequacy because they provide a meaningful base for period-to-period and company-to-company comparisons, which the Company believes will assist investors in assessing the capital of the Company and its ability to absorb potential losses.

(5) March 31, 2014 ratios are estimates and subject to change pending the filing of the FR Y9-C. All other periods presented as filed.
