ANCHORAGE, Alaska, Oct. 22, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Northrim BanCorp, Inc. (Nasdaq:NRIM) ("Northrim") today reported net profits of $3.5 million, or $0.53 per diluted share in the third quarter of 2013, unchanged from the preceding quarter and down from $4.1 million, or $0.62 per diluted share in the third quarter of 2012. An increase in portfolio loans led to an increase in net interest income which partially offset lower contributions from Northrim's mortgage affiliate in the third quarter and first nine months of 2013. In addition, Northrim recorded net recoveries on previously charged off loans and negative loan loss provisions in the three and nine-month periods ending September 30, 2013 which contributed to earnings in each of those periods, although not to the same degree as in the prior periods. In the first nine months of 2013, Northrim earned $9.6 million, or $1.46 per diluted share, compared to $9.8 million, or $1.49 per diluted share in the first nine months of 2012.

"Our profitability reflects our ongoing efforts to deliver solid returns to shareholders and build a dynamic, sustainable franchise in Alaska," said Marc Langland, Chairman, President and CEO of Northrim Bancorp.

Financial Highlights (at or for the period ended September 30, 2013, compared to June 30, 2013, and September 30, 2012)

  • Diluted earnings per share were $0.53 in the third quarter of 2013, level with the preceding quarter and down 15% from the $0.62 per diluted share earned in the third quarter of 2012.
  • Total revenues, which include net interest income plus other operating income, decreased 3% to $14.3 million in the third quarter of 2013, compared to $14.6 million in the second quarter of 2013, and $14.8 million in the third quarter of 2012.

  • Other operating income, which includes revenues from residential mortgage and other financial services affiliates, service charges, and electronic banking, contributed 23% to total revenues in third quarter of 2013, compared to 25% in the preceding quarter and 28% in the third quarter of 2012.
  • Northrim paid a quarterly cash dividend of $0.17 per share in September of 2013, up 13% from the $0.15 per share quarterly cash dividend paid in June of 2013. The dividend provides a yield of approximately 2.9% at current market share prices.
  • Tangible book value1 was $20.66 per share at September 30, 2013, compared to $20.25 per share at June 30, 2013 and $19.43 per share a year ago.
  • Asset quality continued to improve as nonperforming assets declined to $6.6 million, or 0.56% of total assets at September 30, 2013, compared to $8.1 million, or 0.70% of total assets at June 30, 2013 and $10.7 million, or 0.94% of total assets a year ago.
  • Average portfolio loans were $735.1 million for the third quarter of 2013, a 1% increase from the second quarter of 2013 and a 11% increase from the year ago quarter.

  • Tangible common equity to tangible assets2 was 11.49% at September 30, 2013, compared to 11.40% in the preceding quarter and 11.17% a year ago.

"Our asset quality continues to strengthen through the combined efforts of our staff at all levels of the bank," said Joe Beedle, President and CEO of Northrim Bank. "Recoveries on several previously charged off loans allowed us to again book a negative provision for loan losses of $785,000 in the third quarter of this year and a negative provision for the first nine months of this year to $635,000, which is approximately equal to our net recoveries during those periods. A year ago, we booked negative provisions of $1.4 million in the third quarter and $1.3 million in the first nine months of 2012, which were also approximately equal to the net recoveries during those periods.

"Our residential mortgage and employee benefits affiliates, and our purchased receivables line of business continue to be significant contributors to revenue and profitability," Beedle continued. "Mortgage originations are returning to more normal levels as mortgage refinancing activity continues to decline primarily due to higher mortgage rates. This October, we launched the Enroll Alaska initiative, a division of Northrim Benefits Group, which is working to bring insurance coverage under the Affordable Health Care act to the approximately 20% of Alaskans that are uninsured. In the first few weeks of the program, we have established agents in medical facilities, hospitals, retail locations and other high-traffic areas. While it is too early to tell how successful this endeavor will be, we are committed to building our capabilities in this emerging market for individual health insurance." 

Alaska Economic Update

"Alaska's economy continued to grow in the third quarter with encouraging new investments in energy development on the North Slope and continued efforts to find transportation and market solutions for Alaska's North Slope natural gas reserves. The big three oil companies in the state, Exxon, Conoco-Phillips and British Petroleum have recently announced that they are investing billions of dollars into projects," Langland noted.  

"Employment continues to grow in the private sector throughout the state," Langland said, "although jobs in the federal government are down and likely to fall further due to the on-going budget issues in Washington D.C. Recently the U. S. Air Force decided not to vacate Eielson Air Force Base, located outside of Fairbanks, and will leave the 354th Fighter Wing's F-16s in place," continued Langland.

Review of Operations:

"In August, we sadly accepted the resignation of Chris Knudson, our Chief Operating Officer, long-time friend and one of Northrim's founding executives," said Langland. "Chris passed away on September 13, and we offer our sincere condolences to his family, friends, and colleagues. To honor his service to Northrim and our community, we endowed the Chris Knudson Northrim Accounting Scholarship through the University of Alaska Foundation. Joe Schierhorn, our Chief Financial Officer, has added Chief Operating Officer to his duties." 

Revenue and Net Interest Income

Total revenues, which include net interest income plus other operating income, decreased slightly in part due to a decrease in mortgage originations at Northrim's residential mortgage affiliate. Total revenues declined to $14.3 million in the third quarter of 2013 compared to $14.6 million in the second quarter of 2013 and $14.8 million in the third quarter of 2012. For the first nine months of 2013, total revenues were up slightly to $42.6 million from $42.5 million in the same period a year ago. 

In the third quarter of 2013, net interest income grew 1% to $11.0 million, compared to $10.9 million in the immediate prior quarter and was up 4% from $10.6 million in the third quarter of 2012. In the first nine months of 2013, net interest income increased 3% to $32.5 million, compared to $31.4 million in the like period a year ago.

"Solid loan growth, both during the quarter and year-over-year, coupled with a deposit base that is more than 90% in low-cost transaction based accounts, continued to keep our net interest margin at what we believe to be a healthy level," said Schierhorn. "Pressure on loan yields contributed to some margin compression this year. Our net interest margin, nevertheless, continued to be well above the average for the SNL Bank and Thrift Index of 2.92% at June 30, 2013." In the third quarter of 2013, Northrim's net interest margin (NIM) was 4.24%, down 10 basis points from 4.34% in the preceding quarter and down 12 basis points from 4.36% in the third quarter a year ago. Year-to-date, NIM was 4.30% compared to 4.46% in the first nine months of 2012.

Provision for Loan Losses

"Because of the continuing improvement in asset quality and large recoveries on previously charged off loans, we booked a negative provision for loan losses in both the third quarters of 2013 and 2012," said Schierhorn. The loan loss benefit was $785,000 in the third quarter of this year and $1.4 million in the third quarter of 2012. For the first nine months of 2013, the negative loan loss provision totaled $635,000, compared to a negative provision of $1.3 million in the first nine months of last year. Consequently, the allowance for loan losses has remained flat for the quarter and is up slightly from a year ago.

Other Operating Income

Northrim has interests in a number of other complementary businesses that provide financial services to businesses and individuals, including purchased receivables financing, health insurance plans, mortgage origination and wealth management. In the third quarter of 2013, total other operating income was down 12% to $3.2 million from $3.7 million in the preceding quarter, and down 22% from $4.2 million in the third quarter of 2012. In the first nine months of 2013, other operating income was $10.1 million, compared to $11.1 million in the first nine months of 2012. "The largest contributors to the reduction in other operating income were reduced mortgage volumes and lower rental income from our headquarters building, which is in the latter stages of renovation and re-leasing," said Schierhorn. 

Purchased receivable income contributed $757,000 to third quarter 2013 revenues, compared to $768,000 in the preceding quarter and $826,000 in the third quarter a year ago. For the first nine months of 2013, purchased receivable financing contributed $2.2 million to revenues, compared to $2.3 million a year ago. Purchased receivable balances were down 48% from the second quarter, primarily due to a large repayment at the end of the current quarter. "This income stream varies from quarter to quarter depending upon the financing needs of our customers, and we anticipate that we will need a few quarters to rebuild balances for this part of our business," said Beedle.

Employee benefit plan income contributed $541,000 to third quarter 2013 revenues, compared to $632,000 in the preceding quarter and $609,000 in the third quarter of 2012.  For the first nine months of 2013, employee benefit plan income was $1.7 million, compared to $1.8 million for the first nine months of 2012. "With the October 1 start date for the new health care initiatives mandated under the Affordable Care Act, many of our customers deferred making decisions on employee health plans until details of the new programs were published," Beedle said. "We are one of the few firms in our market that has initiated a concerted business program to meet the needs of Alaskans under this new law. We believe our efforts in this specialized area will allow us to add a complementary revenue stream to our business."

In the third quarter of this year, service charges were $549,000, up 2% from $539,000 in the preceding quarter and $536,000 in the third quarter a year ago. In the first nine months of 2013, services charges on deposit accounts declined 4% as compared to the same period a year ago, to $1.6 million. In the third quarter of 2013, electronic banking income contributed $567,000, an increase of 6% from the second quarter of 2013 and an increase of 9% from the year ago quarter. For the first nine months of 2013, electronic banking income grew 7% to $1.6 million from $1.5 million in the same period a year ago. Gain on sale of securities contributed $318,000 to revenues in the first nine months of 2013, compared to $273,000 in the first nine months of 2012.

The decline in other income was primarily due to a lower interest rate swap income in the third quarter of 2013 compared to the second quarter of 2013 and a decrease in rental income at our headquarters building, as noted above. Other income was $493,000 for the third quarter of 2013, compared to $589,000 in the second quarter of 2013 and $703,000 in the third quarter of 2012. For the first nine months of 2013, other income was $1.5 million compared to $2.0 million in the first nine months of 2012. Other income declined during the first nine months of 2013 as compared to the same period in 2012 primarily because of the decrease in rental income noted above.

Other Operating Expenses

Overhead costs increased 7% to $10.1 million in the third quarter of 2013, as compared to $9.4 million in the second quarter of 2013 reflecting increased salary and benefit costs at Northrim and costs associated with the launch of Enroll Alaska, a division of Northrim Benefits Group. "While most of the compensation costs for the agents brought on to implement Enroll Alaska is commission based, we have added supervisors and marketing programs to rollout this innovative new product," said Schierhorn. In the third quarter a year ago overhead costs were $10.0 million. Third quarter 2013 compensation costs increased 9% to $6.1 million from $5.6 million in the second quarter of 2013, and increased 11% from the third quarter a year ago. For the first nine months of 2013, operating expenses were $29.2 million, virtually flat with the first nine months of 2012.

Balance Sheet Review

Northrim's assets totaled $1.18 billion at September 30, 2013, compared to $1.16 billion three months earlier and $1.13 billion a year ago.  

Investment securities totaled $243.1 million at September 30, 2013, compared to $227.5 million at June 30, 2013 and $177.1 million a year ago. At September 30, 2013, the investment portfolio was comprised of 63% U.S. Agency securities (primarily Federal Home Loan Bank and Federal Farm Credit Bank debt), 9% Alaskan municipality, utility, or state agency securities, 25% corporate securities, 2% U.S. treasury securities, and 1% stock in the Federal Home Loan Bank of Seattle. At September 30, 2013, the average estimated duration of the investment portfolio was two years. The investment portfolio generated an average net tax equivalent yield of 1.31% for the third quarter of 2013. "With the uncertainty in the market over the debt ceiling, government funding and federal deficits, we continue to keep our securities portfolio in short-term maturities," said Schierhorn. 

Net loans increased 5% to $751.7 million at the end of the current quarter, and grew 9% from a year ago. Growth in commercial real estate loans contributed a majority of the increase to the portfolio in the third quarter of 2013 as compared to the second quarter. Commercial loan growth was the major growth area in portfolio loans on a year-over-year basis. Construction loans, which remain a small part of the portfolio also contributed to loan growth in both periods. Average portfolio loan balances increased 1% in the quarter and 11% during the past twelve months to $735.1 million. Portfolio loans totaled $754.4 million at September 30, 2013, compared to $718.2 million at June 30, 2013, and $671.6 million a year ago. 

Commercial loans grew 2% in the quarter ended September 30, 2013 and 21% year-over-year to $304.5 million and accounted for 40% of portfolio loans, compared to $299.0 million three months earlier and $251.2 million a year ago. Commercial real estate loans, of which 23% are owner occupied, totaled $358.2 million at September 30, 2013, and accounted for 48% of portfolio loans, compared to a total of $335.1 million at June 30, 2013, and $339.4 million at September 30, 2012. Construction and land development loans totaled $60.4 million at the end of September and accounted for 8% of portfolio loans, compared to $52.7 million at June 30, 2013 and $47.3 million at September 30, 2012. "With both residential and commercial building returning to a more healthy level, we are seeing improved demand for construction loans," Beedle added. 

Loans held for sale declined to $13.9 million at the end of the third quarter of 2013, from $15.8 million at June 30, 2013 and down from $37.3 million a year ago. The average balance for the quarter for loans held for sale fell to $13.4 million at September 30, 2013, compared to $16.9 million at June 30, 2013 and $32.0 million a year ago, primarily reflecting the overall decline in the mortgage market. Northrim purchases these loans from its mortgage affiliate and sells them into the secondary market on pre-arranged commitments. 

The mix of deposits continued to reflect the local commitment of Alaskans to Northrim. Balances in transaction accounts at September 30, 2013 represented 90.7% of total deposits, up from 89.4% a year ago. At September 30, 2013, total deposits were $968.2 million, up 2% from $945.0 million a year ago and up 1% compared to $958.9 million at June 30, 2013. 

Noninterest-bearing demand deposits at September 30, 2013, increased 2% from a year ago, and interest-bearing demand deposits declined 2% over the same period. At the end of the third quarter of 2013, money market and savings account balances were up 6% and 10%, respectively, from year-ago levels, while the Alaska CD (a flexible certificate of deposit program) balances increased 8% over the same period. Time deposit balances at September 30, 2013 fell 10% compared to September 30, 2012. At September 30, 2013, noninterest-bearing demand deposits accounted for 37% of total deposits, interest-bearing demand accounts were 14%, savings deposits were 10%, money market balances accounted for 19%, the Alaska CD accounted for 11%, and time certificates were 9% of total deposits.

Shareholders' equity increased 6% to $142.6 million, or $21.89 per share, at September 30, 2013, compared to $134.1 million, or $20.70 per share, a year ago. At the end of the preceding quarter, shareholders' equity was $140.1 million, or $21.48 per share. Tangible book value per share was $20.66 at September 30, 2013, compared to $19.43 per share a year ago and $20.25 per share at June 30, 2013. Northrim remains well-capitalized with Tier 1 Capital to Risk Adjusted Assets of 15.31% at September 30, 2013. 

Asset Quality 

"As we noted earlier, we continue to improve our asset quality," said Beedle. The ratio of nonperforming assets (NPAs) to total assets dropped to 0.56% at September 30, 2013, down from 0.70% three months earlier and 0.94% a year ago. NPAs were $6.6 million at September 30, 2013, compared to $8.1 million in the preceding quarter and $10.7 million a year ago. 

Nonperforming loans (NPLs) decreased to 0.38% of portfolio loans from 0.53% in the preceding quarter and 0.73% a year ago. NPLs decreased to $2.9 million at September 30, 2013, as compared to $3.8 million at June 30, 2013 and $4.9 million a year ago. Other real estate owned (OREO) was $3.7 million at the end of the third quarter of 2013, compared to $4.3 million in the preceding quarter and $5.8 million at the end of the third quarter of 2012.

Loans measured for impairment totaled $11.0 million at September 30, 2013, compared to $11.2 million at June 30, 2013, and $13.1 million in the third quarter a year ago. 

At September 30, 2013, there were $1.8 million of restructured loans included in nonaccrual loans, as compared to $2.8 million at June 30, 2013, and $3.7 million at September 30, 2012. At September 30, 2013, Northrim held $7.1 million in performing restructured loans that were not included in nonaccrual loans, as compared to $6.2 million at June 30, 2013, and $7.9 million at September 30, 2012. "Borrowers who are in financial difficulty and who have been granted concessions that may include interest rate reductions, term extensions, or payment alterations are categorized as restructured loans," said Schierhorn. "We present restructured loans that are performing separately from those that are in nonaccrual to provide more information on this category of loans and to differentiate between accruing performing and nonperforming restructured loans."

The coverage ratio of the allowance for loan losses to nonperforming loans increased to 569% at September 30, 2013, compared to 431% three months earlier, and 337% a year ago. The allowance for loan losses was unchanged at $16.5 million compared to the preceding and year ago periods.

2 Tangible common equity to tangible assets is a non-GAAP ratio that represents total equity less goodwill and intangible assets divided by total assets less goodwill and intangible assets. This ratio has received more attention over the past several years from stock analysts and regulators. The GAAP measure of common equity to assets would be total equity to total assets. Total equity to total assets was 12.09% at September 30, 2013 as compared to 12.02% at June 30, 2013 and 11.83% at September 30, 2012.
 
3 Tax-equivalent net interest margin is a non-GAAP performance measurement in which interest income on non-taxable investments and loans is presented on a tax-equivalent basis using a combined federal and state statutory rate of 41.11% in both 2013 and 2012.
     
4 The efficiency ratio is a non-GAAP ratio that is calculated by dividing other operating expense, exclusive of intangible asset amortization, by the sum of net interest income and other operating income.
