Union First Market Bankshares Reports Fourth Quarter Results

Jan 26, 2012, 13:21 ET from Union First Market Bankshares Corporation

RICHMOND, Va., Jan. 26, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Union First Market Bankshares Corporation (the "Company") (Nasdaq: UBSH) today reported net income of $8.4 million and earnings per share of $0.28 for its fourth quarter ended December 31, 2011.  The quarterly results represent a decrease of $711,000 in net income or $0.05 in earnings per share from the third quarter, but an increase of $3.9 million in net income or $0.13 in earnings per share from the quarter ended December 31, 2010.  Net income available to common shareholders, which deducts dividends and discount accretion on preferred stock from net income, was $7.3 million compared to $3.9 million for the prior year's fourth quarter.  The fourth quarter decrease in net income was largely attributable to a decline in net interest income.

"Asset quality trends remained positive as we continued to make progress on our efforts to reduce our non-performing assets.  During the fourth quarter, we saw a significant number of new account openings as customers searched for a better place to bank and survey results indicated customer satisfaction with Union reached a new high," said G. William Beale, chief executive officer of Union First Market Bankshares.  "Finally, I was pleased that the Company was able to redeem the assumed CPP during the quarter, which clearly shows the financial strength of our bank.  Our community banking management philosophy has benefited our shareholders, customers, and the communities we serve through these challenging economic times."  

Select highlights:

  • In December, the Company redeemed the Preferred Stock issued to the United States Treasury (the "Treasury") under the Capital Purchase Program ("CPP"). The Preferred Stock was assumed by the Company as part of the 2010 merger with First Market Bank, FSB ("FMB").
  • The Company's results generated a Return on Average Equity ("ROE") of 7.49% and 6.90% and Return on Average Assets ("ROA") of 0.84% and 0.79% for the quarter and year ended December 31, 2011, respectively. ROE and ROA were 5.50% and 0.61%, respectively, for the year ended December 31, 2010.
  • Provision for loan losses decreased $1.2 million from the most recent quarter, and decreased $7.6 million for the year ending December 31, 2011.
  • Nonperforming assets (which includes nonaccrual loans and other real estate owned ("OREO")) decreased $9.3 million or 10.8% during the fourth quarter of 2011 and decreased $20.7 million for the year, or 21.1%.  
  • Total deposits grew $105.0 million, or 3.4%, for the year ended December 31, 2011, and grew $40.2 million, or 1.3%, during the fourth quarter.

During the fourth quarter of 2011, the Company received approval from the Treasury and its regulators to redeem the Preferred Stock issued to the Treasury under CPP.  The Preferred Stock was assumed by the Company as part of the 2010 merger with FMB.  On December 7, 2011, the Company paid approximately $35.7 million to the Treasury in full redemption of the Preferred Stock.  The repayment of the Preferred Stock accelerated the amortization of the related discount of approximately $982,000, which reduced earnings available to common shareholders by $0.02 per share.  In addition, the repayment will allow the Company to retain capital of approximately $1.8 million annually previously paid in a dividend on the preferred shares redeemed.  

Fourth quarter net income increased $3.9 million, or 89.0%, compared to the same quarter in the prior year.  The increase is largely a result of decreases in the provision for loan losses and the FDIC assessment due to changes in assessment base and rate.  These improvements were partially offset by a decline in interest income, which outpaced a lower cost of interest bearing liabilities, losses on sales of OREO and other bank property, a decline in gains on sales of loans related to lower origination volume in the mortgage segment, and higher salary and benefits expense related to additional personnel.

Net income for the year ended December 31, 2011 increased $7.5 million, or 32.8%, from the prior year.  The increase was principally a result of favorable net interest income and the absence of nonrecurring prior year acquisition costs.  All comparative results to the prior year exclude FMB results for the month of January 2010.  

NET INTEREST INCOME

On a linked quarter basis, tax-equivalent net interest income was $39.6 million, a decrease of $956,000, or 2.4%, from the third quarter of 2011.  This decrease was principally due to a decline in income from interest-earning assets outpacing lower costs on interest-bearing liabilities.  Fourth quarter tax-equivalent net interest margin declined 17 basis points to 4.37% from 4.54% compared to the most recent quarter.  The change in net interest margin was principally attributable to the protracted low rate environment as cash flows from securities investments and loans were reinvested at lower yields and new and existing loans were originated or refinanced at lower rates.  The Federal Open Market Committee's commitment to keep rates exceptionally low for an extended period and the resulting flatter yield curve has negatively impacted the bank's net interest margin as lower deposit rates cannot offset lower earning asset yields.   In addition, the average balance of the loan portfolio declined by nearly 1% compared to the most recent quarter, primarily in the consumer loan portfolio.  Should the existing rate environment hold for future quarters, the Company expects to see continued pressure on net interest margin.

For the three months ended December 31, 2011, tax-equivalent net interest income decreased $736,000, or 1.8%, when compared to the same period last year.  The tax-equivalent net interest margin decreased 18 basis points to 4.37% from 4.55% in the prior year.  This decrease was principally due to a decline in income from interest-earning assets outpacing lower costs on interest-bearing liabilities.  Lower interest-earning asset income was principally due to lower yields on loans and investment securities as new loans are originated at lower rates and cash flows from securities investments and loans are reinvested at lower yields.  The improvement in cost of funds was related to declining rates primarily on certificates of deposit and money market accounts.

For the year ended December 31, 2011, tax-equivalent net interest income increased $5.0 million, or 3.2%, when compared to the same period last year.  The tax-equivalent net interest margin increased 1 basis point to 4.57% from 4.56% in the prior year.  The change in the net interest margin was a result of improvement in the cost of funds primarily related to declining rates on certificates of deposit and money market accounts, partially offset by declining yields on loans and loans held for sale, and aided by the increase in interest-earning assets due to the acquisition of FMB in the first quarter of 2010 and the acquisition of the Harrisonburg branch in the second quarter of 2011.

Acquisition Activity – Net Interest Margin

The favorable impact of acquisition accounting fair value adjustments on net interest income was $1.5 million ($1.3 million – FMB; $274,000Harrisonburg branch) and $7.0 million ($6.2 million – FMB; $748,000Harrisonburg branch) for the three and twelve months ended December 31, 2011, respectively.  If not for this favorable impact, the net interest margin for the fourth quarter would have been 4.20%, compared to 4.34% from the third quarter of 2011.  

The Harrisonburg branch

The acquired loan portfolio of the Harrisonburg branch was marked-to-market with a fair value discount to market rates.  Performing loan discount accretion is recognized as interest income over the estimated remaining life of the loans.  The Company also assumed certificates of deposit at a premium to market.  These were marked-to-market with estimates of fair value on acquisition date.  The resulting premium to market is amortized as a decrease to interest expense over the estimated lives of the certificates of deposit.

FMB

The acquired loan and investment security portfolios of FMB were marked-to-market with a fair value discount to market rates.  Performing loan and investment security discount accretion is recognized as interest income over the estimated remaining life of the loans and investment securities.  The Company also assumed borrowings (Federal Home Loan Bank ("FHLB") and subordinated debt) and certificates of deposit.  These liabilities were marked-to-market with estimates of fair value on acquisition date.  The resulting discount/premium to market is accreted/amortized as an increase/decrease to net interest income over the estimated lives of the liabilities.  Additional credit quality deterioration above the original credit mark is recorded as additional provisions for loan losses.

Acquisition Activity – Other Operating Expenses

Acquisition related expenses associated with the acquisition of the Harrisonburg branch were $426,000 for the year ended December 31, 2011 and are recorded in "Other operating expenses" in the Company's condensed consolidated statements of income.  Such costs principally included system conversion and operations integration charges that have been expensed as incurred.  There were no acquisition related expenses related to the Harrisonburg branch in 2010 or in the third and fourth quarters of 2011.  The Company expects no further expenses from the Harrisonburg branch acquisition.

ASSET QUALITY/LOAN LOSS PROVISION

Overview

During the fourth quarter, the Company continued to experience encouraging improvement in asset quality.  The reduced levels of nonperforming loans and OREO were favorable even though current economic conditions did not improve materially.  While future economic conditions remain uncertain, the Company's continued lower levels of provisions for loan losses and increasing allowance to nonperforming assets and loans coverage ratios demonstrate that its dedicated efforts to improve asset quality are having a positive impact.  The magnitude of any change in the real estate market and its impact on the Company is still largely dependent upon continued recovery of commercial real estate and residential housing, and the pace at which the local economies in the Company's operating markets recover.

Nonperforming Assets ("NPAs")

At December 31, 2011, nonperforming assets totaled $77.1 million, a decrease of $9.4 million from the third quarter and a decrease of $20.7 million compared to a year ago.  In addition, nonperforming assets as a percentage of total outstanding loans declined 33 basis points, from 3.07% in the third quarter and 71 basis points from 3.45% in the fourth quarter of the prior year to 2.74% at December 31, 2011.  The current quarter decrease in NPAs from the third quarter related to net decreases in both nonaccrual loans, excluding purchased impaired loans, of $7.2 million and OREO of $2.2 million.    

Nonperforming assets at December 31, 2011 included $44.8 million in nonaccrual loans (excluding purchased impaired loans), a net decrease of $7.2 million, or 13.85%, from the prior quarter.  The decrease was a result of net customer payments of approximately $6.6 million, charge-offs of $2.3 million, loans returning to accruing status of $2.0 million, and transfers to OREO of $1.7 million, partially offset by additions of $5.4 million.  The nonperforming loans added during the quarter were principally related to commercial real estate as borrowers continued to experience financial difficulties with the protracted economic recovery depleting their cash reserves and other repayment sources.  

Nonaccrual loans include land loans of $13.3 million, other commercial loans of $10.6 million, commercial construction loans of $10.3 million, commercial real estate loans of $7.9 million, and other loans of $2.7 million.  At December 31, 2011, the coverage ratio of the allowance for loan losses to nonperforming loans was 88.0%, an increase from 62.2% a year earlier and from 79.5% at September 30, 2011.  Impairment analyses provided appropriate reserves on these nonperforming loans while appropriate reserves on homogenous pools continue to be maintained.  The increase in the coverage ratio is primarily related to a decline in nonperforming loans.

Nonperforming assets at December 31, 2011 also included $32.3 million in OREO, a net decrease of $2.2 million, or 6.38%, from the prior quarter.  The net decrease was a result of sales of $3.7 million at a net loss of approximately $700,000, or 19.9%, additions of $2.7 million, and a fair value impairment write-down of approximately $500,000.  The additions were principally related to residential real estate; sales from OREO were principally related to residential real estate, commercial property, and raw land.  Several of the OREO properties sold during the quarter resulted in losses as management strategically accepted lower offers on the properties in an effort to reduce NPAs.  

The OREO portfolio is composed of land development of $11.3 million, residential real estate of $11.0 million, land of $6.4 million, commercial real estate of $2.6 million, and land previously held for development of bank branch sites of $1.0 million.  Included in land development is $8.8 million related to a residential community in the Northern Neck region of Virginia, which includes developed residential lots, a golf course, and undeveloped land.  Foreclosed properties were adjusted to their fair values at the time of each foreclosure and any losses were taken as loan charge-offs against the allowance for loan losses at that time.  OREO asset valuations are also evaluated at least quarterly and any necessary write downs to fair values are recorded as impairment.  

Charge-offs

For the quarter ended December 31, 2011, net charge-offs of loans were $4.2 million, or 0.59%, on an annualized basis, compared to $1.9 million, or 0.27%, for the third quarter of 2011 and $8.5 million, or 1.19%, for the same quarter last year.  Net charge-offs in the current quarter included commercial loans of $2.4 million, other consumer loans of $1.4 million, and home equity lines of credit of $449,000.  At December 31, 2011, total accruing past due loans were $39.3 million, or 1.40%, of total loans, a decrease from 1.61% at September 30, 2011 and from 1.95% a year ago.  

Provision

The provision for loan losses for the current quarter was $2.4 million, a decrease of $1.2 million from the third quarter of this year and a $7.1 million decrease from the same quarter a year ago.  The lower provision for loan losses compared to the most recent quarter reflects improvements in asset quality, tempered by charge-offs of approximately $2.8 million, or 67% of net charge-offs, that were specifically reserved for in prior periods.  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 in assessing the adequacy of the allowance for loan losses.  

The allowance for loan losses as a percentage of the total loan portfolio, including net loans acquired in the FMB and the Harrisonburg branch acquisitions, was 1.40% at December 31, 2011, 1.47% at September 30, 2011, and 1.35% at December 31, 2010.  The allowance for loan losses as a percentage of the total loan portfolio, adjusted for acquired loans, was 1.83% at December 31, 2011, a decrease from 1.94% at September 30, 2011 and from 1.88% a year ago.  While the allowance for loan losses as a percentage of the adjusted loan portfolio declined, the coverage ratios significantly improved, which further shows that management's proactive diligence in working through problem credits is having a significant impact on asset quality.  The lower allowance for loan losses as a percentage of loans compared to the loan portfolio, adjusted for acquired loans, is related to the elimination of FMB's allowance for loan losses at acquisition.  In acquisition accounting, there is no carryover of previously established allowance for loan losses.

NONINTEREST INCOME

On a linked quarter basis, noninterest income increased $179,000, or 1.6%, to $11.7 million from $11.5 million in the third quarter.  During the fourth quarter, the Company recorded a loss of $351,000 on disposal of bank owned property and incurred losses on sales of OREO of $737,000, compared to a gain on sale of other real estate owned of $134,000 in the prior quarter.  Gains on sales of mortgage loans increased $847,000, or 17.4%, and were driven by higher volume in mortgage loan originations.  Increases in mortgage loan refinancing volume accounted for most of the volume increase as refinanced loans as a percentage of originations in the mortgage segment increased from 35.7% in the third quarter to 52.2%.  Also during the quarter, the Company recorded gains on sales of investment securities of $430,000, compared to $499,000 in the prior quarter. In addition, during the prior quarter, the Company incurred a credit related other than temporary impairment ("OTTI") loss of $400,000, which was recognized in earnings.  Excluding mortgage segment operations, sales of bank owned real estate, property, and securities transactions, noninterest income increased $214,000 or 3.3%.

For the quarter ended December 31, 2011, noninterest income decreased $1.4 million, or 10.4%, to $11.7 million from $13.1 million in the prior year's same quarter.  During the fourth quarter, the Company recorded losses on sales of OREO of $737,000, and recorded a loss on disposal of $351,000 of bank owned property, compared to a gain on sale of bank owned real estate of $448,000 in the prior year's same quarter.  Gains on sales of mortgage loans decreased $742,000, or 11.5%, due to lower origination volume a year earlier.  Also during the current quarter, the Company sold securities for a gain of $430,000.  Excluding the mortgage segment operations, sales of bank owned real estate and property and securities transactions, noninterest income increased $298,000, or 4.6%, from the same period a year ago.

For the year ended December 31, 2011, noninterest income decreased $3.5 million, or 7.4%, to $43.8 million from $47.3 million a year ago.  Gains on sales of bank owned property declined $1.4 million. Of this amount, the Company recorded a current year loss on disposal of $351,000 of bank owned property and a current year loss on sale of $626,000 of a branch building, and a prior year gain on sale of an investment property of $448,000.  Gains on sales of OREO declined $1.3 million primarily related to current year losses on sales of property.  Gains on sales of mortgage loans decreased $2.3 million driven by lower origination volume.  Also during the year, the Company incurred a credit related OTTI loss of $400,000, which was recognized in earnings.  Account service charges and other fees increased $1.2 million.  Other charges and fees increased $1.4 million, primarily related to an increase in debit card fees of $763,000, ATM fees of $463,000, and brokerage commissions of $273,000, offset by a decline in account service charges of $279,000, largely related to overdraft fee volume.  Also during the year, the Company recorded gains on sales of securities of $913,000.  Excluding the mortgage segment operations, sales of bank owned real estate, property, and securities transactions, noninterest income increased $1.0 million, or 4.1%, from the same period a year ago.

NONINTEREST EXPENSE

On a linked quarter basis, noninterest expense increased $1.8 million, or 5.0%, to $36.4 million from $34.6 million when compared to the third quarter.  Other operating expenses increased $1.5 million, or 12.3%.  Included in the other operating expenses increase was a valuation write-down of OREO of $529,000, higher marketing and advertising costs of $545,000, primarily related to television campaigns to promote online banking functionality, and other loan and real estate owned related expenses of $357,000.  Salaries and benefits expense increased $266,000 due to the origination volume related commission expense.  Excluding the mortgage segment operations, noninterest expense increased $1.0 million, or 3.4%, compared to the third quarter of this year.

For the quarter ended December 31, 2011, noninterest expense decreased $717,000, or 1.9%, to $36.4 million from $37.1 million for the fourth quarter of 2010.  Other operating expenses decreased $1.4 million, or 9.2%.  This expense decrease included $1.2 million of post acquisition lease and contract termination fees, costs related to the consolidation of bank affiliates, and conversion costs of acquired branches that occurred in the fourth quarter of the prior year.  Increases in current year other operating expenses included a valuation adjustment write-down of OREO of $529,000, higher marketing and advertising  expenses of $336,000, primarily related to television campaigns to promote online banking functionality, and higher franchise taxes of $299,000 which were levied to include all of the former FMB branches.  Partially offsetting higher other operating expenses was lower FDIC assessment expense of $508,000 due to change in assessment base and rate.  Salaries and benefits increased $698,000 related to additional personnel in branch additions and profit sharing expense, partially offset by the lower origination volume related commission expense in the mortgage segment.  Excluding the mortgage segment operations and prior period acquisition, termination, and conversion costs, noninterest expense increased $1.4 million, or 4.6%, compared to the fourth quarter of this year.

For the year ended December 31, 2011, noninterest expense decreased $1.4 million, or 1.0%, to $141.6 million, from $143.0 million a year ago.  Other operating expenses decreased $5.1 million, or 9.0%.  Included in the reduction of other operating expenses were prior year costs associated with the acquisitions and mergers of $8.7 million during 2010 compared to $426,000 in 2011, lower amortization on the acquired deposit portfolio of $1.1 million, and lower FDIC assessment expense of $340,000 due to lower assessment base and rate.  Increases in current year other operating expenses included valuation adjustments and higher costs to maintain the Company's portfolio of OREO of $1.6 million, higher franchises taxes of $1.2 million levied to include all of the former FMB branches, higher communication expenses of $1.0 million related to increased online customer activity and additional branch locations.  Salary and benefits expense increased $3.7 million, primarily related to additional personnel, offset by lower origination volume related commission expense in the mortgage segment.  Excluding mortgage segment operations and current and prior year acquisition costs, noninterest expense increased $8.4 million, or 7.3%, from the same period a year ago.

BALANCE SHEET

At December 31, 2011, total cash and cash equivalents were $96.7 million, a decrease of $53.1 million from September 30, 2011, and an increase of $35.5 million from December 31, 2010.  During the fourth quarter, the Company paid the Treasury $35.7 million to redeem the Preferred Stock issued to the Treasury and assumed in the FMB acquisition, and increased investment in securities $34.3 million.  At December 31, 2011, net loans were $2.8 billion, an increase of $2.1 million, virtually unchanged from the prior quarter.  Net loans decreased $19.7 million, or 0.7%, from December 31, 2010.  Mortgage loans held for sale of $74.8 million increased by $13.0 million from the prior quarter related to an increase in refinance volume and was flat from the prior year's same quarter.  At December 31, 2011, total assets were $3.9 billion, a decrease of $7.4 million compared to the third quarter, and an increase of $69.8 million from $3.8 billion at December 31, 2010.  

Total deposits grew $105.0 million, or 3.4%, for the year ended December 31, 2011, and grew $40.2 million, or 1.3%, during the fourth quarter.  Of this amount, interest bearing deposits increased $48.4 million compared to the third quarter driven by higher volumes in money market and NOW accounts partially offset by runoff in certificates of deposit under $100,000.  Similarly, interest bearing deposits increased $55.4 million from December 31, 2010, as money market and NOW accounts balances increases were partially offset by runoff in certificates of deposit.  Total borrowings, including repurchase agreements, decreased $7.3 million on a linked quarter basis and decreased $29.5 million from December 31, 2010 as the Company reduced reliance on short-term sources of funds.  The Company's equity to assets ratio was 10.79% and 11.16% at December 31, 2011 and 2010, respectively.  The decrease in the equity to assets ratio was due to the Company's redemption of the CPP described above.  The Company's tangible common equity to tangible assets ratio was 8.91% and 8.22% at December 31, 2011 and 2010, respectively.

MORTGAGE SEGMENT INFORMATION

On a linked quarter basis, the mortgage segment net income for the fourth quarter increased $191,000, or 41.3%, to $654,000 from $463,000 in the third quarter, related to favorable pricing on sales of loans and origination volume.  Originations increased by $10.6 million from $176.0 million to $186.6 million, or 6.0%, from the third quarter as a result of an increase in refinance originations.  Refinanced loans represented 52.2% of the originations during the fourth quarter compared to 35.7% during the third quarter.  Gains on the sale of loans increased $847,000, or 17.4%, and salary and benefit expenses increased $434,000 largely on loan volume driven commission expense.  Loan related expenses were $298,000, increasing $135,000, or 82.1% from the prior quarter as a result of a write off of uncollectible appraisals and other loan related expenses.

For the three months ended December 31, 2011, the mortgage segment net income decreased $200,000 from $854,000 to $654,000, or 23.4%, compared to the same period last year as residential mortgage activity and average loan size declined.  Originations decreased by $50.1 million from $236.7 million to $186.6 million, or 21.2%, from the fourth quarter last year.  Refinance loans represented 52.2% of originations during the fourth quarter of 2011 compared to 56.1% during the same period a year ago.  Net interest income declined by $381,000, or 55.1% due to an increase in warehouse line of credit borrowing rates.  The decline in originations led to a decrease in gains on the sale of loans of $742,000, or 11.5%.  Noninterest expenses decreased $780,000.  Of this amount, salaries and benefits decreased $882,000 primarily as a result of loan volume driven commission expense.

For the year ended December 31, 2011, the mortgage segment net income decreased $1.5 million, or 48.5%, to $1.6 million from $3.1 million during the same period last year.  Originations decreased by $149.3 million from $808.7 million to $659.4 million, or 18.5%, compared to the same period last year due to declines in residential mortgage activity and an evolving regulatory environment, which increased demands on production.  Gains on the sale of loans decreased $2.3 million, or 10.5%, driven largely by the decline in origination volume.  Refinanced loans represented 37.4% of originations during the year compared to 43.1% during the same period a year ago.  Net interest income declined $907,000, or 40.8%, from the prior year as a result of increases to the warehouse line of credit borrowing rate.  Salary and benefit expenses decreased $1.2 million primarily due to lower commission expense on decreased origination volume, partially offset by higher salaries expense required to meet evolving regulatory, compliance, and production demands.  Other operating expenses increased $322,000, or 12.5%, primarily related to increased costs associated with the processing, underwriting, and compliance components of origination.

(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 acquired loans (non-GAAP) ratio includes the allowance for loan losses to the total loan portfolio less acquired loans without additional credit deterioration above the original credit mark (which have been provided for in the ALLL subsequent to acquisition).  GAAP requires the acquired allowance for loan losses not be carried over in an acquisition or merger.  We believe the presentation of the allowance for loan losses, adjusted for acquired loans 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.  Therefore, acquired loans without additional credit deterioration above the original credit mark are adjusted out of the loan balance denominator.

(3) As a supplement to GAAP, management also reviews operating performance based on its "cash basis earnings" to fully analyze its core business.  Cash basis earnings exclude amortization expense attributable to intangibles (goodwill and core deposit intangibles) that do not qualify as regulatory capital.  Financial ratios based on cash basis earnings exclude the amortization of nonqualifying intangible assets from earnings and the unamortized balance of nonqualifying  intangibles from assets and equity.         In management's opinion, cash basis earnings are useful to investors because by excluding non-operating adjustments they allow investors to see clearly the economic impact on the results of Company.  These non-GAAP disclosures should not, however, be viewed in direct comparison with non-GAAP measures of other companies.
