First Bank Reports First Quarter 2022 Net Income of $8.2 Million

4:30 pm ET April 25, 2022 (Globe Newswire) Print

First Bank (Nasdaq Global Market: FRBA) (the Bank) today announced results for the first quarter of 2022, including net income of $8.2 million, or $0.41 per diluted share. Return on average assets, return on average equity and return on average tangible equity for the first quarter of 2022 were 1.31%, 12.25% and 13.22%, respectively. In the first quarter of 2021, the Bank reported net income of $9.7 million, or $0.49 per diluted share, and return on average assets, return on average equity and return on average tangible equity of 1.66%, 16.21% and 17.52%, respectively.

First Quarter 2022 Performance Highlights:

"Our first quarter performance was highlighted by strong earnings, continued organic loan growth, further enhancement of our deposit mix and solid asset quality metrics," said Patrick L. Ryan, President and Chief Executive Officer. "Our team's focus on expanding relationships with new and existing customers supported solid balance sheet expansion, with non-PPP loans up an annualized 12.8% and deposits up an annualized 12.1% from the linked fourth quarter. Organic loan growth was led by investor and owner-occupied commercial real estate lending, while our deposit mix continued to shift toward lower cost, non-time deposits."

Mr. Ryan continued, "As expected, PPP loans and associated fees declined in the first quarter of 2022 as customers' loans through this federal program continue to be forgiven. Offsetting this decline was strong organic loan growth in the fourth quarter of 2021 and first quarter of 2022, creating a larger average earning asset base. This loan growth, combined with our continued low funding costs, led to net interest income expansion for the quarter. We also saw an improvement in our net interest margin which was 3.43%, excluding PPP fees, in the first quarter of 2022 compared to 3.34% in the fourth quarter of 2021 and we see opportunity to improve the margin through rising asset yields. While non-interest revenues were softer in the first three months of the year, we believe this was partially a timing issue and remain optimistic about opportunities to expand U.S. Small Business Administration loan sale activity and continue to generate loan swap fee income. As we seek to drive continued revenue growth, we remain focused on effectively managing expenses, even as we respond to inflationary and competitive pressures to retain and recruit top talent in our markets."

"Loan growth continues to come from high-quality customers and, accordingly, our asset quality metrics remain strong. Our nonperforming loans to total loans ratio improved during the quarter to 0.59%. Net charge-offs remain relatively low as annualized charge offs were 0.05% of average loans during the quarter ended March 31, 2022 and primarily related to one loan."

"We are very pleased with our performance so far in 2022 and the opportunities we see ahead for continued growth. Our two newest branches, acquired in late 2021, continue to perform well and have led to some expanded customer relationships and with our robust lending pipelines, we believe we can continue to drive organic commercial loan growth. Our confidence is due in large part to the exceptional talent we have and continue to attract. We have been able to capitalize on market disruption, adding a number of relationship managers over the last several quarters from larger institutions that have already hit the ground running."

"Our entire team is focused on maintaining our earnings and profitability strength as we seek to drive long-term shareholder value. As such, we were pleased to again announce a $0.06 quarterly dividend, reflecting an annualized yield of 1.68% based on our April 19, 2022 closing price."

Income Statement

First Bank's net interest income for the first quarter of 2022 was $21.1 million, an increase of $1.1 million, or 5.5%, compared to $20.0 million in the first quarter of 2021, due primarily to a $1.1 million decrease in total interest expense. The reduction in interest expense was primarily a result of a 46 basis point reduction in the average rate paid on time deposits, along with a decrease of $157.7 million in the average balance of time deposits. As a result of the Bank's concerted effort to drive down deposit costs in a comparatively much lower interest rate environment, interest expense on all other interest bearing deposits also declined. Interest income was consistent with the year-ago quarter even with a lower level of PPP loan fees, as average loan growth of $93.7 million between the comparative periods was partially offset by a 20 basis point decline in the average loan yields. Impacting interest income from loans in the first quarter of 2022 was $860,000 in PPP loan fees compared to $1.6 million in the first quarter of 2021 and $1.1 million in the linked fourth quarter of 2021. Also impacting loan interest income in the first quarter of 2022 was loan prepayment income of $459,000, compared to $673,000 for the quarter ended March 31, 2021 and $312,000 for the quarter ended December 31, 2021.

The first quarter 2022 tax equivalent net interest margin was 3.57%, a modest decrease of three basis points compared to the prior year quarter and an increase of five basis points from the fourth quarter of 2021. The Bank's margin continues to benefit from higher average non-interest bearing deposits and an overall lower cost of funds.

The Bank reported a provision for loan losses of $642,000 for the first quarter of 2022, compared to $1.1 million credit to the provision for loan losses in the first quarter of 2021 and a provision of $825,000 for the linked fourth quarter 2021. The provision for the quarter ended March 31, 2022 reflects consistent organic loan growth and continued strong asset quality.

First quarter 2022 non-interest income of $1.3 million compares to $2.3 million during the first quarter 2021. The decrease between the periods was primarily the result of a $497,000 decrease in gains on sale of loans reflecting lower U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) loan sales, a $436,000 decrease in loan fees primarily reflecting lower loan swap fees in the first quarter 2022, and a $246,000 decrease in gains on the recovery of acquired loans.

Non-interest expense for first quarter 2022 of $11.1 million increased $472,000, or 4.4%, compared to $10.7 million for the prior year quarter. The higher non-interest expense compared to first quarter 2021 was primarily a result of a $776,000, or 13.5%, increase in salaries and employee benefits which was partially offset by reduced occupancy and equipment and legal fees. The increase in salaries and employee benefits was due primarily to merit-based salary compensation, a slightly higher number of total employees and increases in employee benefit costs.

On a linked quarter basis, first quarter 2022 non-interest expense decreased $703,000, or 5.9%, compared to $11.8 million for the fourth quarter of 2021, when the Bank recorded higher performance related compensation and merger-related expenses associated with our acquisition of two branches. Excluding merger-related expenses incurred in the fourth quarter of 2021, adjusted non-interest expense decreased 1.8% between the comparable periods.

Income tax expense for the three months ended March 31, 2022 was $2.5 million with an effective tax rate of 23.4%, compared to $3.1 million with an effective tax rate of 24.2% for the first quarter of 2021 and $2.4 million with an effective tax rate of 23.2% for the fourth quarter of 2021.

Balance Sheet

Total assets at March 31, 2022 were $2.57 billion, an increase of $168.3 million, or 7.0%, compared to $2.41 billion at March 31, 2021 and $63.5 million, or 2.5%, from December 31, 2021, respectively. Total loans increased $129.6 million, or 6.4%, to $2.15 billion at March 31, 2022 compared to $2.02 billion at March 31, 2021. The increase in loans during the twelve month period ended March 31, 2022 reflects net non-PPP organic growth of $286.7 million and approximately $11.3 million in acquired loans, offset by a net decline in PPP loans of $168.4 million, as such loans continue to be forgiven. Total loans as of March 31, 2022 increased $39.8 million, or 1.9%, from $2.11 billion at December 31, 2021, reflecting organic, net non-PPP loan growth of $65.3 million, offset by a net decline in PPP loans of $25.5 million. PPP loans outstanding at March 31, 2022 were $25.5 million.

Total deposits were $2.18 billion at March 31, 2022, an increase of $207.4 million, or 10.5%, from $1.97 billion at March 31, 2021, and an increase of $63.3 million, or 3.0%, compared to $2.11 billion at December 31, 2021, respectively. Non-interest-bearing deposits totaled $597.3 million at March 31, 2022, an increase of $97.3 million, or 19.5%, from March 31, 2021, and an increase of $38.6 million, or 6.9%, from December 31, 2021. The Bank continues to focus on enhancing its deposit mix and, as of March 31, 2022, has grown non-interest bearing deposits to 27.4% and lowered time deposits to 15.1% of total deposits.

Stockholders' equity was $271.1 million at March 31, 2022, compared to $266.7 million at December 31, 2021. The growth of $4.4 million, or 1.7%, was primarily a result of first quarter 2022 net income of $8.2 million, partially offset by a $3.2 million increase in accumulated other comprehensive loss and cash dividends paid of $1.2 million during the three months ended March 31, 2022. The increase in accumulated other comprehensive loss was due to an increase in unrealized losses on the Bank's available for sale investment securities.

As of March 31, 2022, the Bank continued to exceed all regulatory capital requirements to be considered well capitalized, with a Tier 1 Leverage ratio of 10.15%, a Tier 1 Risk-Based capital ratio of 10.60%, a Common Equity Tier 1 Capital ratio of 10.60%, and a Total Risk-Based capital ratio of 12.86%.

Asset Quality

First Bank's asset quality metrics remained stable and favorable during the three months ended March 31, 2022. Net charge offs of $247,000 for the first quarter of 2022 were 0.05% of average loans on an annualized basis. This compares to net recoveries of $5,000, or an annualized 0.00% of average loans, for the first quarter of 2021 and net charge offs of $6,000, or an annualized 0.00%, for the fourth quarter of 2021. Nonperforming loans were $12.6 million at March 31, 2022, up from $10.7 million on March 31, 2021, and down from $13.0 million at December 31, 2021. Nonperforming loans as a percentage of total loans at March 31, 2022 were 0.59%, compared with 0.53% at March 31, 2021 and 0.62% at December 31, 2021, respectively. The allowance for loan losses to nonperforming loans was 191.72% at March 31, 2022, compared with 214.74% at the end of first quarter 2021, and 182.65% at December 31, 2021, respectively.

COVID-19 Response

First Bank participated in the PPP, established by the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Securities Act (CARES Act), during 2020 and 2021. The PPP was a specialized low-interest loan program funded by the U.S. Treasury Department and administered by the SBA. The PPP provided borrower guarantees for lenders, as well as loan forgiveness incentives for borrowers that utilized the loan proceeds to cover compensation and other business-related operating costs. The PPP ended on May 31, 2021 but the PPP loan forgiveness process is ongoing. As of March 31, 2022, First Bank had 205 PPP loans with outstanding balances of $25.5 million. During the quarter ended March 31, 2022, PPP loans totaling $25.5 million were forgiven and the Bank realized $860,000 in loan fees on these loans as any deferred fees remaining on the forgiven loans were accelerated. As of March 31, 2022, the Bank had $829,000 in remaining unamortized fees associated with outstanding balances of PPP loans.

First Bank continues to monitor and analyze its COVID-19 related financial hardship payment deferrals (COVID-19 deferrals). As of March 31, 2022, the Bank's population of COVID-19 deferrals consisted of one loan totaling $222,000, or 0.00% of total loans, down from $1.6 million, or 0.08% of total loans, at December 31, 2021.

Cash Dividend Declared

On April 19, 2022, First Bank's Board of Directors declared a quarterly cash dividend of $0.06 per share to common stockholders of record at the close of business on May 13, 2022, payable on May 27, 2022.
