Results of Operations for the Three Months Ended September 30, 2021

Net Interest Income and Net Interest Margin

Net interest income for the quarter ended September 30, 2021, was $52.5 million, a decrease of $1.8 million, or 3.2%, compared to the linked quarter. The decrease was primarily due to a $2.3 million decrease in interest income earned on the total loan portfolio offset by a $326,000 increase in interest income earned on total investment securities. The decrease in interest income earned on the total loan portfolio was primarily driven by a $366.4 million decrease in the average balance of total loans caused primarily by decreases of $242.0 million and $158.5 million in average PPP loan balances and average mortgage warehouse lines of credit loan balances, respectively, as the outstanding PPP loan balances declined through the SBA's forgiveness process and mortgage warehouse lines of credit continued to normalize. Net interest income, excluding interest earned on PPP loans and mortgage warehouse lines of credit, increased $1.6 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2021, compared to the linked quarter. The increase in interest income earned on total securities was primarily due to a $103.4 million increase in the average balance of total securities.

The yield earned on interest-earning assets for the quarter ended September 30, 2021, was 3.33%, a decrease of 11 basis points compared to the linked quarter and a 31 basis point decrease compared to the quarter ended September 30, 2020. Excluding PPP loans, the yield earned on interest-earning assets was 3.25%, a 12 basis point decrease compared to the linked quarter. The rate paid on total interest-bearing liabilities for the quarter ended September 30, 2021, was 0.53%, representing no change from the linked quarter and a decrease of 22 basis points compared to the quarter ended September 30, 2020.

The fully tax-equivalent net interest margin ("NIM") was 3.02% for the current quarter, a 10 basis point decrease and a 16 basis point decrease from the linked quarter and the quarter ended September 30, 2020, respectively. Excluding PPP loans, the fully tax-equivalent NIM was 2.94%, a 12 basis point decrease and a 34 basis point decrease from the linked quarter and the quarter ended September 30, 2020, respectively. The decline in NIM was primarily due to pricing pressure in a continued low interest rate environment and increases in liquidity resulting from a shift in balance sheet composition as PPP loan balances continued to decline and mortgage warehouse loan volume continued to normalize. This excess liquidity was the primary cause of the increase in average balances of lower-yielding interest-bearing deposits due from banks and investment securities.

The Company recorded a credit loss provision net benefit of $3.9 million during the quarter ended September 30, 2021, compared to a credit loss provision net benefit of $5.6 million recorded during the linked quarter. The release of provision reflects the continued improvement in forecasted economic conditions at September 30, 2021, and improvements in most credit loss metrics. While economic forecasts have improved, uncertainty remains for the remainder of 2021 due to risks related to the resurgence or lingering effects of COVID-19, rising inflation and labor pressures, as well as continued global supply-chain disruptions.

Overall, most credit metrics improved in the current quarter compared to the linked quarter. The allowance for loan credit losses to nonperforming LHFI increased to 284.86% at September 30, 2021, compared to 252.78% at June 30, 2021. The Company's quarterly net charge-offs were stable, and nonperforming LHFI declined $5.9 million, when compared to the linked quarter. Classified loans declined $8.7 million at September 30, 2021, compared to June 30, 2021, and represented 1.52% of LHFI, excluding PPP loans.

Noninterest Income

Noninterest income for the quarter ended September 30, 2021, was $15.9 million, an increase of $3.5 million, or 28.0%, from the linked quarter. The increase from the linked quarter was primarily driven by increases of $2.3 million and $703,000 in limited partnership investment income and swap fee income, respectively.

The $2.3 million increase in limited partnership investment income was primarily due to valuation increases of the investments in two of the limited partnership funds. The $703,000 increase in swap fee income was driven by swap commission fees earned on a new swap contract executed during the current quarter.

Noninterest Expense

Noninterest expense for the quarter ended September 30, 2021, was $39.2 million, an increase of $1.3 million, compared to the linked quarter. This increase was primarily driven by an increase of $1.3 million in salaries and employee benefit expenses primarily due to a $1.0 million increase in medical self-insurance costs driven by higher medical claims during the quarter ended September 30, 2021, and the addition of 12 full-time equivalent employees.

Financial Condition

Loans

  • Total LHFI decreased $209.0 million compared to the linked quarter and decreased $425.4 million compared to September 30, 2020.
  • Total LHFI at September 30, 2021, were $4.26 billion, excluding PPP and mortgage warehouse lines of credit, reflecting a $95.9 million, or 2.3% increase, compared to the linked quarter and an increase of $214.2 million, or 5.3%, compared to September 30, 2020.
  • PPP loans, net of deferred fees and costs, totaled $217.0 million at September 30, 2021, a decrease of $153.0 million compared to the linked quarter and a decrease of $335.4 million compared to September 30, 2020. Net deferred loan fees and costs on PPP loans were $6.3 million at September 30, 2021, $9.3 million at June 30, 2021, and $12.1 million at September 30, 2020.
  • Mortgage warehouse lines of credit decreased $151.9 million compared to the linked quarter and decreased $304.2 million compared to September 30, 2020.
  • Average LHFI decreased $370.3 million, compared to the linked quarter, and decreased $155.4 million compared to the quarter ended September 30, 2020.
  • Average LHFI, excluding PPP and mortgage warehouse lines of credit, increased $30.2 million, compared to the linked quarter, and increased $178.5 million compared to the quarter ended September 30, 2020.

Total LHFI at September 30, 2021, were $5.19 billion, reflecting a decrease of 3.9% compared to the linked quarter and a decrease of 7.6%, compared to September 30, 2020. The decrease in LHFI compared to the linked quarter, was primarily driven by decreases in PPP loans and mortgage warehouse lines of credit, respectively, as the outstanding PPP loan balances declined primarily through the SBA's forgiveness process and mortgage warehouse lines of credit continued to normalize.

Securities

  • Total securities increased $512.4 million compared to the linked quarter and increased $687.9 million, compared to September 30, 2020.
  • Average securities increased $103.4 million, compared to the linked quarter, and increased $341.2 million compared to the quarter ended September 30, 2020.

Total securities at September 30, 2021, were $1.54 billion, reflecting an increase of 50.1% compared to the linked quarter and an increase of 81.2%, compared to September 30, 2020. The overall increase in securities reflects a shift in balance sheet composition as liquidity surged due to declines in PPP and mortgage warehouse lines of credit loan balances due to the SBA's forgiveness process and the normalization of mortgage warehouse lines of credit.

Deposits

  • Total deposits increased $130.4 million and $222.8 million compared to the linked quarter and September 30, 2020, respectively.
  • Noninterest-bearing deposits grew $119.1 million, or 6.4%, compared to June 30, 2021, and $380.7 million, or 23.8%, at September 30, 2020.

The increase in total deposits from the linked quarter is driven by increases of $141.4 million and $119.1 million in interest-bearing demand and noninterest-bearing deposits, respectively. The increase was partially offset by a decrease of $102.5 million in money market deposits. The increase from September 30, 2020 is driven by increases of $469.2 million, $380.7 million and $285.3 million in interest-bearing demand, noninterest-bearing deposits and money market deposits, respectively. These increases were partially offset by a decrease of $835.9 million in brokered deposits.

Business depositors drove an increase of $197.6 million in noninterest-bearing demand and interest-bearing deposits compared to the linked quarter, which was offset by a $149.9 million decrease in money market deposits from business depositors. Increases of $708.1 million and $162.0 million in deposits from business depositors and public funds, respectively, drove the increase in total deposits compared to September 30, 2020.

For the quarter ended September 30, 2021, average noninterest-bearing deposits as a percentage of total average deposits were 31.7%, compared to 29.4% for the linked quarter, and 30.4% for the quarter ended September 30, 2020.

Borrowings

  • Average FHLB advances and other borrowings for the quarter ended September 30, 2021, increased slightly by $1.2 million or 0.4%, and decreased by $279.2 million or 51.4%, compared to the linked quarter and the quarter ended September 30, 2020, respectively.

The increase in average FHLB advances and other borrowings from linked quarter is driven by a $1.2 million increase in repurchase agreements. The decrease in average FHLB advances and other borrowings from the quarter ended September 30, 2020 is mainly due to a $209.3 million decrease in the balance of Federal Reserve PPP Liquidity Facility funds, as the Company repaid all advances under this facility prior to the end of the September 30, 2020 quarter.

Stockholder's Equity

Stockholders' equity was $705.7 million at September 30, 2021, an increase of $17.4 million compared to $688.2 million at June 30, 2021, and an increase of $78.0 million compared to $627.6 million at September 30, 2020. The increase from the linked quarter was primarily due to net income for the quarter of $27.0 million, which was partially offset by other comprehensive loss, net of tax and the quarterly dividend declared during the quarter ended September 30, 2021. The increase from the September 30, 2020, quarter was primarily driven by net income retained during the intervening period.

____________________________
(1) PTPP earnings, PTPP return on average stockholders' equity, PTPP return on average assets and tangible book value per common share are non-GAAP financial measures. For a reconciliation of these non-GAAP financial measures to their comparable GAAP measures, please see the last two pages.
(2) Net interest margin, excluding PPP loans, fully tax-equivalent is calculated by removing average PPP loans from average interest earning assets, and removing the associated interest income (net of 35 basis points assumed cost of funds on average PPP loan balances) from net-interest income.
(3) Calculated by dividing noninterest expense by the sum of net interest income plus noninterest income.
(4) September 30, 2021, ratios are estimated and calculated at the Company level, which is subject to the capital adequacy requirements of the Federal Reserve Board.

____________________________
(1) PTPP earnings, PTPP return on average stockholders' equity, and PTPP return on average assets are non-GAAP financial measures. For a reconciliation of these non-GAAP financial measures to their comparable GAAP measures, please see the last two pages.
(2) Due to the combined impact of the repurchase of common stock on the quarterly average common shares outstanding calculation compared to the impact of the repurchase of common stock shares on the year-to-date average common outstanding calculation, and the effect of rounding, the sum of the quarterly earnings per common share may not equal the year-to-date earnings per common share amount.
(3) Net interest margin, excluding PPP loans, fully tax-equivalent is calculated by removing average PPP loans from average interest-earning assets, and removing the associated interest income (net of 35 basis points assumed cost of funds on average PPP loan balances) from net interest income.
(4) Calculated by dividing noninterest expense by the sum of net interest income plus noninterest income.

(1) Past due LHFI are defined as loans 30 days or more past due. There were $266,000 of past due PPP loans at September 30, 2021, that are fully guaranteed by the SBA.
(2) The allowance for loan credit losses ("ACL") to total LHFI excluding PPP and warehouse loans is calculated by excluding the ACL for warehouse loans from the numerator and excluding the PPP and warehouse loans from the denominator. Due to their low-risk profile, mortgage warehouse loans require a disproportionately low allocation of the allowance for loan credit losses.

(1) Includes Government National Mortgage Association ("GNMA") repurchase average balances of $51.3 million, $60.3 million, and $31.7 million for the three months ended September 30, 2021, June 30, 2021, and September 30, 2020, respectively. The GNMA repurchase asset and liability are recorded as equal offsetting amounts in the consolidated balance sheets, with the asset included in Loans held for sale and the liability included in FHLB advances and other borrowings.
(2) In order to present pre-tax income and resulting yields on tax-exempt investments comparable to those on taxable investments, a tax-equivalent adjustment has been computed. This adjustment also includes income tax credits received on Qualified School Construction Bonds.
(3) Net interest margin, excluding PPP loans, fully tax-equivalent is calculated by removing average PPP loans from average interest-earning assets, and removing the associated interest income (net of 35 basis points assumed cost of funds on average PPP loan balances) from net interest income.
