Pacific Premier Bancorp, Inc. Announces 2009 Results (Unaudited)

Jan 28, 2010, 06:00 ET from Pacific Premier Bancorp, Inc.

COSTA MESA, Calif., Jan. 28 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Pacific Premier Bancorp, Inc.  (Nasdaq: PPBI) (the "Company"), the holding company of Pacific Premier Bank (the "Bank"), reported a net loss for 2009 of $460,000 or $0.08 per share on a diluted basis, compared with net income of $708,000 or $0.11 per share on a diluted basis for 2008.

The $1.3 million decrease in the Company's pre-tax income/ (loss) for 2009 compared to 2008 was due primarily to:

  • A $5.5 million increase in provision for loan losses; and
  • A $0.7 million increase in noninterest expense, primarily associated with higher costs related to Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation ("FDIC") insurance premiums, other real estate owned operations, net and professional fees, partially offset by lower compensation and benefits expense.

Offsetting the above items were the following:

  • A $2.1 million increase in net interest income due to a higher level of interest earning assets and a higher net interest margin; and
  • A $2.9 million favorable change in noninterest income (loss) category, primarily associated with a lower other-than-temporary impairment ("OTTI") charge taken on private label securities in 2009 and higher deposit fee income, partially offset by lower loan servicing fee income and losses on loan sales, compared to gains in the prior year.

Steven R. Gardner, President and Chief Executive Officer, commented on the results, "The recessionary economic conditions in Southern California had a negative impact on our financial results during this past year.  However, even in this challenging environment, our bankers continue to attract new customers and build our franchise. Through hard work and outstanding customer service, we have taken advantage of the challenges facing our competitors and have reached out to attract many new business customers.  We continue to gain market share through the acquisition of new business banking customers.  Our transaction accounts are up 122% or $107 million from last year and were the main contributor to our $162 million or 35% increase in total deposits in 2009.  The lower cost of transaction account deposits allowed us to reduce our wholesale funding by paying down higher cost borrowings of $118 million.  These actions resulted in the Bank's cost of funds decreasing by 131 basis points during the year from 3.40% at the end of 2008 to 2.09% at the end of 2009."

Mr. Gardner added, "During the fourth quarter of 2009, we successfully raised $15.5 million in capital from a public offering of our common stock.  The proceeds from the offering further strengthened the Bank's regulatory capital ratios by increasing Tier 1 leverage capital to 9.72% and total risk-based capital to 14.56% at year end, both of which continue to exceed the levels required to be considered well capitalized for regulatory purposes.  Importantly, the additional capital raised in the offering enables us to take advantage of strategic opportunities that become available in our market areas."

Mr. Gardner continued, "Although the economic environment continues to impact our asset quality, our overall loan portfolio is performing better than most of our peers. Our nonperforming assets have remained relatively flat over the last three quarters of 2009 and represent just 1.7% of total assets at December 31, 2009.  Our loans delinquent 90 days or more have shown an improving trend over the second half of this year with only 13 loans aggregating $5.8 million or 1.0% of total loans 90 days or more past-due at year-end 2009.  We continue to work to minimize losses in our loan portfolio, by proactively addressing loans at the earliest indication of weakness and implementing aggressive collection and loss mitigation strategies."

Mr. Gardner concluded, "Our allowance for loan losses has grown during the year and is now at 1.55% of total loans; this growth is in part due to net loan charge-offs of 0.79% of average loans in 2009.  Given the expected weakness in the Southern California economy and its impact on commercial real estate into 2010, we expect credit costs to remain elevated for a period of time.  Our overall conservative credit culture has proven to be an important buttress against the prolonged weakness in the commercial real estate market. The debt service coverage ratio for our multifamily portfolio of 1.20 and our non-owner occupied commercial real estate portfolio of 1.42 have remained essentially unchanged since the first quarter of 2009.  These results are a direct reflection of our conservative credit philosophy, sound underwriting practices and our proactive portfolio management."

For the fourth quarter of 2009, the Company's net loss totaled $277,000 or $0.04 per share on a diluted basis, compared with net income of $106,000 or $0.02 per share on a diluted basis in the comparable prior period.  After an audit by the California Franchise Tax Board of our 2005 and 2006 tax years, certain net interest deductions related to California Enterprise Zones that were allowed in previous tax years were disallowed.  As a result of the audit, we estimated additional tax expense related to net interest deductions taken in years 2007, 2008 and 2009 to be approximately $445,000 and accordingly recorded additional tax expense in 2009.  The Company is currently in discussions with the state taxing authority concerning this matter.

At December 31, 2009, the Company's basic book value per share was $7.33, diluted book value per share was $6.75 and the ratio of tangible common equity to total assets was 9.10%.

Net Interest Income

Net interest income totaled $6.2 million in the fourth quarter of 2009, up $0.7 million or 13.7% from the same period in the prior year, reflecting a $56.7 million or 7.9% increase in average interest-earning assets to $772.6 million and an increase in the net interest margin.  The net interest margin was 3.20% in the current quarter, up 17 basis points from the same period in the prior year.  The increase in the current quarter from a year ago primarily reflected the average costs on interest-bearing liabilities decreasing more rapidly than the average yield on interest-earning assets.  The lower yield on our interest-earning assets was unfavorably impacted by a higher average cash and cash equivalents balance held in the current quarter and a lower yield on our investment securities.  Our lower investment securities yield was primarily due to our decision to reduce the credit risk exposure in the securities portfolio by selling private label securities with higher credit risk and replacing them with lower yielding, lower credit risk government sponsored enterprises ("GSE") securities.  In a decreasing interest rate environment, this lowered the yield on our investment securities by 318 basis points.  These GSE securities also enhance our regulatory capital as they have a lower asset risk weighting than the private label securities.  Partially offsetting the lower yield on our interest-earning assets was a 32 basis point increase in our loan interest yield in the 2009 fourth quarter.  

For 2009, net interest income totaled $23.2 million, up $2.1 million or 9.8% from 2008.  The increase was associated with higher average interest-earning assets, which grew by $36.8 million, and an increase in the net interest margin of 13 basis points.

Provision for Loan Losses

During the fourth quarter of 2009, the provision for loan losses totaled $2.2 million, an increase of $1.6 million from the same period in the prior year and loan charge offs amounted to $1.4 million, an increase of $0.9 million from the same period in the prior year.  The weakness in the California economy and our recent charge off history were the dominating factors in determining our provision and the adequacy of our allowance for loan losses during 2009.  The recent loan charge offs we have experienced are in response to the uncertainty and recessionary conditions in our primary markets as well as constraints on the financial markets in which we lend.  These conditions continue to adversely affect our borrowers and their businesses and, consequently, the collateral securing our loans.

For 2009, the provision for loan losses was $7.7 million and net loan charge-offs totaled $4.7 million.  This compares to a $2.2 million provision for loan losses and net loan charge-offs of $1.0 million for 2008.

Noninterest income

Noninterest income totaled $139,000 in the fourth quarter of 2009, up from a loss of $0.7 million from the same period in the prior year.  The favorable change between quarters was primarily due to a lower OTTI charge of $430,000 in the 2009 fourth quarter, compared to a charge of $1.3 million in the year-ago quarter and a gain on sale of investment securities of $366,000 in the current quarter, compared with no sales activity in the prior year quarter.  Both OTTI charges were on private label securities recorded in the net gain (loss) from sale of investment securities category.  As previously disclosed, these securities were received by the Company when it redeemed its shares in two mutual funds in the second quarter of 2008.  Partially offsetting these improvements in the 2009 fourth quarter was a $358,000 loss on the sale of loans of $1.8 million in the current quarter.  No loans were sold in the fourth quarter of 2008.

For 2009, noninterest income totaled $0.7 million, compared to a loss of $2.2 million from 2008.  The improvement from 2008 was primarily related to a $3.5 million favorable change in net gain (loss) from sale of investment securities predominantly associated with the Company's redemption of the aforementioned investment in mutual funds.  Partially offsetting that improvement was lower loan servicing fee income of $0.5 million, primarily related to lower prepayment fees, and losses on the sale of loans compared to gains in 2008 for a net unfavorable change of $443,000.

Noninterest Expense

Noninterest expense totaled $4.1 million in the fourth quarter of 2009, essentially unchanged from the same period in the prior year.  Within noninterest expense, we experienced higher costs related to FDIC insurance premiums of $198,000 and other real estate owned operations, net of $135,000, partially offset by lower marketing expense of $131,000 and compensation and benefits expense of $117,000.  FDIC insurance premiums increased due to a raise in the regular quarterly assessment from 7.5 basis points in the fourth quarter of 2008 to 18.0 basis points for the fourth quarter of 2009 and the growth in the Company's deposits of 35.4% since year-end 2008.  Higher costs related to other real estate owned operations, net were due to an increase in write downs and, to a lesser extent, an increase in the number of foreclosed properties.  The decrease in compensation and benefits expense for the quarter was primarily attributable to a reduction in the annual incentive compensation accrual.

For 2009, noninterest expense totaled $16.7 million, up $0.7 million or 4.6% from 2008.  The increase was due primarily to higher FDIC insurance premiums of $1.1 million, other real estate owned operations, net of $259,000 and legal and audit fees of $195,000, partially offset by lower compensation and benefits expense of $0.9 million.

Assets and Liabilities

At December 31, 2009, assets totaled $807.3 million, up $67.4 million or 9.1% from December 31, 2008.  During the fourth quarter of 2009, assets declined $40.5 million primarily due to decreases in cash and cash equivalents of $56.0 million and loans held for investment, net of $9.9 million.  These decreases were partially offset by an increase in investment securities available for sale of $21.7 million.

Investment securities available for sale increased 21.4% during the current fourth quarter to $123.4 million at December 31, 2009.  The increase was primarily due to net purchases funded by increased deposits and, to a lesser extent, a reduction in loans held for investment.  At December 31, 2009, 52 of the private label mortgage backed securities ("MBS") totaling $6.0 million, with a market value of $4.1 million, were classified as substandard or impaired.  Interest received from these securities is applied against their respective principal balances.  All of these private label MBS were acquired when the Company redeemed its shares in mutual funds in the second quarter of 2008.

Net loans held for investment declined $9.9 million in the current fourth quarter to $566.6 million at December 31, 2009.  Included in the quarter were loan originations totaling $449,000.  The Company's allowance for loan losses increased $0.8 million to $8.9 million at December 31, 2009, from $8.1 million at September 30, 2009.  The increase was primarily from the provision for loan losses of $2.2 million, offset by net loan charge-offs of $1.4 million, which were up from the $1.1 million recorded in the quarter ended September 30, 2009.  The allowance for loan losses as a percent of nonaccrual loans increased to 86% at December 31, 2009 from 83% at September 30, 2009.  Likewise, the ratio for allowance for loan losses to total loans increased to 1.5% at December 31, 2009, up from 1.4% at September 30, 2009.

Deposits totaled $618.7 million at December 31, 2009, up $161.6 million or 35.4% from December 31, 2008.  During the fourth quarter of 2009, deposits increased $12.4 million due primarily to growth in transaction accounts of $34.2 million, partially offset by decreases in retail certificates of deposit of $21.2 million.  Within the retail certificates of deposit decrease, we experienced a contraction of $43.5 million in our less than one year products, while our greater than one year products grew $22.3 million as we strategically sought to lengthen liabilities in the current low interest rate environment.  At December 31, 2009, the Company had a minimal amount of wholesale deposits and no brokered deposits.  At December 31, 2009, the loan to deposit ratio was 93.0%, compared to 137.5% at December 31, 2008.

At December 31, 2009, total borrowings of the Company amounted to $101.8 million, down $118.4 million or 53.8% from December 31, 2008 and down $75.0 million or 42.4% from the third quarter of 2009.  At December 31, 2009, total borrowings represented 12.6% of total assets.  The reduction in borrowings during the last quarter of 2009 was related wholly to the pay down of fixed rate Federal Home Loan Bank term advances, which carried a rate of 4.99%.

Nonperforming Assets

Non-performing assets increased during the fourth quarter of 2009 by $314,000 to $13.7 million at December 31, 2009 representing 1.70% of total assets, compared to non-performing assets of $5.2 million at December 31, 2008, representing 0.71% of total assets.  During the fourth quarter of 2009, three multi-family real estate loans totaling $3.6 million and three SBA loans totaling $403,000 were placed on nonaccrual status.  Other real estate owned declined $264,000 during the fourth quarter of 2009, primarily due to sale of a $0.8 million commercial real estate property at a minimal loss and a $128,000 write down on a commercial real estate property, partially offset by the foreclosure of one commercial real estate business loan of $0.7 million.  The weak economy continues to affect our borrowers as reflected in the changes in our nonperforming assets.  Nonperforming assets consisted of $10.3 million of nonaccrual loans and $3.4 million of other real estate owned at December 31, 2009.

Regulatory Capital Ratios

In the fourth quarter of 2009, the Company raised $15.5 million in capital by issuing 5,030,385 shares of common stock at a public offering price of $3.25 per share.  The Company injected $14.0 million of the proceeds from the offering into the Bank, which enhanced the Bank's regulatory capital ratios.  At December 31, 2009, the Bank exceeded all regulatory capital requirements with a ratio for tier 1 leverage capital of 9.72%, tier 1 risked-based capital of 13.30% and total risk-based capital of 14.56%.  These capital ratios exceeded the "well capitalized" standards defined by the federal banking regulators of 5.00% for tier 1 leverage capital, 6.00% for tier 1 risked-based capital and 10.00%, for total risk-based capital.  At December 31, 2009, the Company had a ratio for tier1 leverage capital of 9.89%, tier 1 risked-based capital of 13.42% and total risk-based capital of 14.67%.

The Company owns all of the capital stock of the Bank.  The Bank provides business and consumer banking products to its customers through our six full-service depository branches in Southern California located in the cities of San Bernardino, Seal Beach, Huntington Beach, Los Alamitos, Costa Mesa and Newport Beach.

Pacific Premier Bancorp, Inc. will hold its annual meeting on Wednesday May 26, 2010 at 9 a.m. at its corporate headquarters in Costa Mesa, California.  The record date for shareholders to vote their proxy for the annual meeting will be March 31, 2010.
