Independent Bank Group, Inc. Reports Fourth Quarter Financial Results

266 Days ago

MCKINNEY, Texas, Jan. 28, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Independent Bank Group, Inc. (NASDAQ: IBTX), the holding company for Independent Bank, today announced net income of $34.0 million, or $1.11 per diluted share, for the quarter ended December 31, 2018 compared to $19.2 million, or $0.68 per diluted share, for the quarter ended December 31, 2017 and $35.7 million, or $1.17 per diluted share, for the quarter ended September 30, 2018.

For the year ended December 31, 2018, the Company reported net income of $128.3 million, or $4.33 per diluted share, compared to $76.5 million, or $2.97 per diluted share, for the year ended December 31, 2017, a 68% increase.

For 2018, net income and earnings per share were positively impacted by the 14% reduction of the corporate U.S. statutory federal tax rate from 35% to 21% as a result of the enactment of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (TCJA), which became effective January 1, 2018.

Highlights

  • Completed the Guaranty Bancorp acquisition as scheduled on January 1, 2019, on the terms and with the exchange ratio originally announced
  • Focused efforts on integration of the Guaranty acquisition, emphasizing execution of cost saves coupled with a balanced investment in infrastructure and leveraging of Guaranty's personnel and systems
  • Managed total assets to be less than $10 billion at December 31, 2018, delaying the impact of the Durbin amendment limitation on interchange fees until July 2020
  • Solid earnings of $34.0 million, or $1.11 per diluted share and adjusted (non-GAAP) net income of $34.1 million, or $1.12 per diluted share
  • Organic loan growth of 12% for 2018
  • Continued strong asset quality with all credit metrics remaining at historically low levels
  • Established a $75 million Share Repurchase Program and announced plans to increase the quarterly dividend to $0.25 per share in the first quarter 2019

“2018 was another great year for our company,” said Independent Bank Group Chairman and CEO David R. Brooks.  “We reported another year of record earnings, driven by strong loan growth and supported by continued excellent credit metrics.  These results allowed us to establish a share repurchase program and announce plans to increase our quarterly dividend, reflecting our continuing commitment to enhancing shareholder value.”  Brooks continued, “We are especially pleased to have completed the Guaranty acquisition on time and on the announced terms despite the market volatility seen in the fourth quarter.  Through the acquisition of this premier Colorado franchise, we have established a major presence in the Denver market. Our primary focus for 2019 will be to successfully execute on the integration of this acquisition.”

Fourth Quarter 2018 Operating Results

Net Interest Income

  • Net interest income was $87.1 million for fourth quarter 2018 compared to $75.3 million for fourth quarter 2017 and $86.3 million for third quarter 2018.  The increase in net interest income from the previous year was primarily due to increased average earning assets resulting from organic growth and the acquisition of Integrity Bancshares, as well as overall higher interest rates due to a rising rate environment.  The increase from the linked quarter is primarily a result of organic loan growth. During the fourth quarter 2018, liquid assets were redeployed to loans and total growth was limited as part of plan to maintain assets below $10 billion.
  • The average balance of total interest-earning assets grew by $1.2 billion and totaled $8.7 billion at December 31, 2018 compared to $7.5 billion at December 31, 2017 and was unchanged compared to September 30, 2018. The increase from the prior year was due primarily to organic growth as well as $718.9 million in earning assets acquired in the Integrity transaction.
  • The yield on interest-earning assets was 5.15% for fourth quarter 2018 compared to 4.61% for fourth quarter 2017 and 4.99% for third quarter 2018.  The increase from the prior year and linked quarter was due primarily to higher rates on interest-earning assets due to continued increases in the Fed Funds rate during these periods. In addition, the increase was due to a shift in the earning asset mix from interest-bearing deposits to higher yielding loans and taxable securities.
  • The cost of interest-bearing liabilities, including borrowings, was 1.64% for fourth quarter 2018 compared to 0.89% for fourth quarter 2017 and 1.47% for third quarter 2018.  The increases from the prior year and linked quarter were primarily due to higher rates offered on our deposits, primarily commercial money market accounts and certificates of deposit, resulting both from market competition and general increases in interest rates on deposit products tied to Fed Funds rates. In addition, rate increases on short-term FHLB advances and junior subordinated debt impacted interest expense.
  • The net interest margin was 3.98% for fourth quarter 2018 compared to 3.97% for fourth quarter 2017 and 3.94% for third quarter 2018.  The adjusted (non-GAAP) net interest margin, which excludes purchased loan accretion, was 3.93% for fourth quarter 2018 compared to 3.84% for fourth quarter 2017 and 3.89% for third quarter 2018.  The increase in the net interest margin from the prior year and linked quarter was primarily due to the multiple increases in the Fed Funds target rate as well as earning assets shifting from cash to loans.

Noninterest Income

  • Total noninterest income decreased $3.7 million compared to fourth quarter 2017 and decreased $2.9 million compared to third quarter 2018.
  • The decrease from the prior year primarily reflects decreases of $3.0 million in gain on sale of nine Colorado branches and $1.0 million in gain on sale of repossessed assets, offset by an increase of $445 thousand in other noninterest income, primarily an increase in correspondent bank earnings credit of $359 thousand.
  • The decrease from the linked quarter primarily reflects decreases of $1.7 million in mortgage banking revenue and $792 thousand in other noninterest income primarily resulting from decreases in merchant income of $184 thousand, swap dealer income of $125 thousand and acquired loan recoveries of $121 thousand. The bank recorded $1.6 million of income related to the mortgage hedging strategy in third quarter 2018 compared to $394 thousand in fourth quarter 2018.

Noninterest Expense

  • Total noninterest expense increased $2.3 million compared to fourth quarter 2017 and decreased $807 thousand compared to third quarter 2018.
  • The increase in expense compared to fourth quarter 2017 is due primarily to increases of $3.5 million in salaries and benefits, $811 thousand in occupancy expenses, $745 thousand in data processing, and $1.7 million in other noninterest expense, offset by a decrease of $4.2 million in acquisition expenses. The overall increase in salaries and benefits, occupancy and data processing from the prior year is reflective of additional headcount, branch locations and accounts acquired in the Integrity acquisition as well as organic growth during the year. The increase in other noninterest expense is primarily due to higher deposit- and loan-related expenses for the year over year period. Fourth quarter 2017 acquisition expenses were elevated due to professional fees and contract termination fees, conversion expenses and branch restructuring expenses incurred relating to the 2017 Carlile acquisition.
  • The decrease from the linked quarter is primarily related to decreases of $1.2 million in acquisition expenses and $489 thousand in salaries and benefits, offset by an increase of $824 thousand in other noninterest expense. Acquisition expense was elevated in the linked quarter primarily due to professional fees and conversion-related expenses related to the Integrity transaction and professional fees related to the pending Guaranty transaction. Salaries and benefits expense was elevated in the linked quarter due to retention and conversion bonuses paid related to the Integrity acquisition. The increase in other noninterest expense is primarily due to increased FDIC insurance premiums of $333 thousand and higher deposit- and loan-related expenses.

Provision for Loan Losses

  • Provision for loan loss was $2.9 million for fourth quarter 2018, an increase of $1.0 million compared to $1.9 million for fourth quarter 2017 and an increase of $1.4 million compared to $1.5 million for third quarter 2018. Provision expense is primarily reflective of organic loan growth as well as charge-offs or specific reserves taken during the respective period.
  • The allowance for loan losses was $44.8 million, or 0.58% of total loans at December 31, 2018, compared to $39.4 million, or 0.62% of total loans at December 31, 2017, and compared to $42.2 million, or 0.56% of total loans, at September 30, 2018.  The dollar increases from prior periods are primarily due to additional general reserves for organic loan growth. In addition, the decrease in the allowance for loan losses as a percentage of loans from prior year reflects that loans acquired in the Integrity transaction were recorded at fair value without an allowance at acquisition date.

Income Taxes

  • Federal income tax expense of $8.3 million was recorded for the quarter ended December 31, 2018, an effective rate of 19.6% compared to tax expense of $18.2 million and an effective rate of 48.7% for the quarter ended December 31, 2017 and tax expense of $9.1 million and an effective rate of 20.4% for the quarter ended September 30, 2018.  The lower tax rate in third and fourth quarter 2018 is primarily due to the reduction of the corporate U.S. statutory federal income tax rate from 35% to 21% as a result of the TCJA. The higher tax rate in fourth quarter 2017 was primarily due to a $5.5 million charge to remeasure deferred taxes as a result of the enactment of the TCJA.

Fourth Quarter 2018 Balance Sheet Highlights

Loans

  • Total loans held for investment, net of mortgage warehouse purchase loans, were $7.7 billion at December 31, 2018 compared to $7.6 billion at September 30, 2018 and $6.3 billion at December 31, 2017.  Loans held for investment increased $163.4 million, or 2.2% for the quarter.  Loans held for investment increased $1.4 billion from December 31, 2017, or 22.3%, $651.8 million of which was acquired in the Integrity acquisition and $756.2 million of which was organic growth, or 12.0% for the year. Organic loan growth for the fourth quarter was 8.6% on an annualized basis.
  • Average mortgage warehouse purchase loans were $120.9 million for the quarter ended December 31, 2018 compared to $136.1 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2018, representing a decrease of  $15.2 million, or 11.1% for the quarter, and compared to $159.2 million for the quarter ended December 31, 2017, a decrease of $38.3 million, or 24.1% year over year. The change from the linked quarter and prior year quarter is reflective of decreased mortgage loan market activity during the respective periods.
  • Commercial real estate (CRE) loans were $4.1 billion at December 31, 2018 compared to $4.0 billion at September 30, 2018 and $3.4 billion at December 31, 2017, or 52.3%, 51.7% and 51.7% of total loans, respectively.

Asset Quality

  • Total nonperforming assets increased to $16.9 million, or 0.17% of total assets at December 31, 2018, from $15.4 million, or 0.16% of total assets at September 30, 2018, and decreased from $22.7 million, or 0.26% of total assets at December 31, 2017.
  • Total nonperforming loans increased to $12.6 million, or 0.16% of total loans at December 31, 2018, from $10.7 million, or 0.14% of total loans at September 30, 2018, and decreased from $15.4 million, or 0.24% of total loans at December 31, 2017.
  • The net increase in nonperforming assets and nonperforming loans from the linked quarter is primarily due to the addition of two single-family interim construction loans totaling $3.6 million placed on nonaccrual status, offset by four nonaccrual loan payoffs totaling $1.4 million, as well as the disposition of $410 thousand of other real estate owned during the quarter.
  • The decrease in nonperforming assets and nonperforming loans from the prior year is primarily due to a net decrease in nonaccrual loans of $2.2 million, and a $554 thousand troubled debt restructured loan payoff, as well as other real estate owned dispositions totaling $2.9 million for the year over year period.
  • Charge-offs were 0.01% annualized in the fourth quarter 2018 compared to 0.14% annualized in the linked quarter and 0.02% annualized in the prior year quarter. Charge-offs were elevated in the linked quarter primarily due to a $2.5 million partial charge-off of an energy loan.

Deposits and Borrowings

  • Total deposits were $7.7 billion at December 31, 2018 compared to $7.8 billion at September 30, 2018 and compared to $6.6 billion at December 31, 2017.  The increase in deposits from the prior year is primarily due to organic growth as well as $593 million in deposits acquired in the Integrity transaction. The decrease in deposits from the linked quarter is related to the strategy to maintain total assets below $10 billion at December 31, 2018.
  • Total borrowings (other than junior subordinated debentures) were $427.3 million at December 31, 2018, a decrease of $54.9 million from September 30, 2018 and a decrease of $240.3 million from December 31, 2017.  The change in the linked quarter and prior year reflects the use of short-term FHLB advances as needed for liquidity and balance sheet management.

Capital

  • Book value and tangible book value per common share (non-GAAP) increased to $52.50 and $27.44, respectively, at December 31, 2018 compared to $51.42 and $26.21, respectively, at September 30, 2018 and compared to $47.28 and $23.76, respectively, at December 31, 2017. The increase from prior year is due to the retention of earnings and the additional capital from the Integrity acquisition in second quarter 2018. The increase from the linked quarter is due to the retention of earnings.
  • Independent Bank Group is well capitalized under regulatory guidelines. At December 31, 2018, our estimated common equity Tier 1 to risk-weighted assets, Tier 1 capital to average assets, Tier 1 capital to risk-weighted assets and total capital to risk-weighted asset ratios were 10.05%, 9.57%, 10.41% and 12.58%, respectively, compared to 9.83%, 9.20%, 10.20%, and 12.38%, respectively, at September 30, 2018.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

In addition to results presented in accordance with GAAP, this press release contains certain non-GAAP financial measures.  These measures and ratios include “adjusted net income”, "adjusted earnings", “tangible book value”, “tangible book value per common share”, “adjusted efficiency ratio”, “tangible common equity to tangible assets”, “adjusted net interest margin”, "return on tangible equity", “adjusted return on average assets” and “adjusted return on average equity” and are supplemental measures that are not required by, or are not presented in accordance with, accounting principles generally accepted in the United States.  We consider the use of select non-GAAP financial measures and ratios to be useful for financial operational decision making and useful in evaluating period-to-period comparisons.  We believe that these non-GAAP financial measures provide meaningful supplemental information regarding our performance by excluding certain expenditures or assets that we believe are not indicative of our primary business operating results.  We believe that management and investors benefit from referring to these non-GAAP financial measures in assessing our performance and when planning, forecasting, analyzing and comparing past, present and future periods.

We believe that these measures provide useful information to management and investors that is supplementary to our financial condition, results of operations and cash flows computed in accordance with GAAP; however we acknowledge that our financial measures have a number of limitations relative to GAAP financial measures.  Certain non-GAAP financial measures exclude items of income, expenditures, expenses, assets, or liabilities, including provisions for loan losses and the effect of goodwill, core deposit intangibles and income from accretion on acquired loans arising from purchase accounting adjustments, that we believe cause certain aspects of our results of operations or financial condition to be not indicative of our primary operating results.  All of these items significantly impact our financial statements.  Additionally, the items that we exclude in our adjustments are not necessarily consistent with the items that our peers may exclude from their results of operations and key financial measures and therefore may limit the comparability of similarly named financial measures and ratios.  We compensate for these limitations by providing the equivalent GAAP measures whenever we present the non-GAAP financial measures and by including a reconciliation of the impact of the components adjusted for in the non- GAAP financial measure so that both measures and the individual components may be considered when analyzing our performance.

A reconciliation of our non-GAAP financial measures to the comparable GAAP financial measures is included at the end of the financial statements tables.
