Atlantic Union Bankshares Reports First Quarter Results

RICHMOND, Va., April 21, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Atlantic Union Bankshares Corporation (the “Company” or “Atlantic Union”) (Nasdaq: AUB) today reported net income available to common shareholders of $40.7 million and basic and diluted earnings per common share of $0.54 for the first quarter ended March 31, 2022. Adjusted operating earnings available to common shareholders(1) were $45.1 million, diluted operating earnings per common share(1) were $0.60, and pre-tax pre-provision adjusted operating earnings available to common shareholders(1) were $58.3 million for the first quarter ended March 31, 2022.

“Atlantic Union Bankshares is off to a strong start in 2022 highlighted by double digit annualized loan growth in a traditionally slower quarter for the company,” said John C. Asbury, president and chief executive officer of Atlantic Union. “While we are mindful of the current economic and geopolitical uncertainties, we are encouraged by our competitive positioning, market dynamics and the economic strength in our footprint. This gives us confidence in our ability to achieve our top tier financial targets by the end of the year on a run-rate basis.”

“Operating under the mantra of soundness, profitability and growth – in that order of priority – Atlantic Union remains committed to generating sustainable, profitable growth and building long term value for our shareholders.”

Strategic Initiatives

During the fourth quarter of 2021, the Company took certain actions to reduce expenses in light of the period’s prevailing and expected operating environment that included the closure of the Atlantic Union Bankshares operations center and consolidation of 16 branches, all of which were completed in March 2022. These actions resulted in restructuring expenses in the first quarter of 2022 of approximately $5.5 million, compared to $16.5 million in the quarter ended December 31, 2021. Restructuring expenses in the first quarter of 2022 primarily related to lease and other asset write downs, as well as severance costs.

Share Repurchase Program

On December 10, 2021, the Company’s Board of Directors authorized a share repurchase program (the “Repurchase Program”) to purchase up to $100 million of the Company’s common stock through December 9, 2022 in open market transactions or privately negotiated transactions, including pursuant to a trading plan in accordance with Rule 10b5-1 and / or Rule 10b-18 under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”). As part of the Repurchase Program, approximately 630,000 shares (or $25.0 million) were repurchased during the quarter ended March 31, 2022, and no shares were repurchased during the quarter ended December 31, 2021.

NET INTEREST INCOME

For the first quarter of 2022, net interest income was $130.9 million, a decrease from $138.3 million reported in the fourth quarter of 2021. Net interest income (FTE)(1) was $134.3 million in the first quarter of 2022, a decrease of approximately $7.3 million from the fourth quarter of 2021. The decreases in net interest income and net interest income (FTE) (1) were primarily driven by lower Paycheck Protection Program (“PPP”) loan related interest and fees, as well as lower prepayment activity, which drove lower accretion from acquisition accounting fair value adjustments. These decreases were partially offset by higher investment interest income due to growth in the average balance of the investment portfolio from the prior quarter, higher interest income driven by average loan growth, lower deposit costs, and lower borrowing costs primarily reflecting the $1 million in interest expense incurred in the fourth quarter of 2021 due to the acceleration of the unamortized discount associated with the Company’s redemption of its outstanding $150 million of 5% fixed-to-floating rate subordinated notes that were due to mature in 2026 (the “2026 Notes”). The first quarter net interest margin decreased 6 basis points to 2.97% from the previous quarter, and the net interest margin (FTE)(1) also decreased 6 basis points during the same period to 3.04%. The cost of funds decreased by 2 basis points compared to the fourth quarter of 2021, driven by lower costs on deposits, and lower borrowing costs noted above.

The Company’s net interest margin (FTE) (1) includes the impact of acquisition accounting fair value adjustments. Net accretion related to acquisition accounting was $2.0 million for the quarter ended March 31, 2022 representing a decline of $2.2 million from the prior quarter. The fourth quarter of 2021, the first quarter of 2022 and the remaining estimated net accretion impact are reflected in the following table (dollars in thousands):

ASSET QUALITY

Overview
During the first quarter of 2022, nonperforming assets (“NPAs”) as a percentage of loans decreased 2 basis points from the prior quarter and remained low at 0.23% at March 31, 2022. Accruing past due loan levels as a percentage of total loans held for investment at March 31, 2022 decreased 1 basis point as compared to December 31, 2021, and were 3 basis points lower than at March 31, 2021. Net charge-offs were insignificant for the first quarter of 2022 and the fourth quarter of 2021. The allowance for credit losses (“ACL”) totaled $110.6 million at March 31, 2022, a $2.8 million increase from the prior quarter primarily due to increased uncertainty in the macroeconomic outlook and the impact of loan growth in the first quarter of 2022.

Nonperforming Assets
At March 31, 2022, NPAs totaled $30.7 million, a decrease of $2.1 million from December 31, 2021. NPAs as a percentage of total outstanding loans at March 31, 2022 were 0.23%, a decrease of 2 basis points from December 31, 2021.

Past Due Loans
Past due loans still accruing interest totaled $29.6 million or 0.22% of total loans held for investment at March 31, 2022, compared to $29.9 million or 0.23% of total loans held for investment at December 31, 2021, and $36.0 million or 0.25% of total loans held for investment at March 31, 2021. Of the total past due loans still accruing interest, $8.2 million or 0.06% of total loans held for investment were loans past due 90 days or more at March 31, 2022, compared to $9.1 million or 0.07% of total loans held for investment at December 31, 2021, and $9.8 million or 0.07% of total loans held for investment at March 31, 2021.

Net Charge-offs
Net charge-offs were insignificant and less than 0.01% of total average loans on an annualized basis for the quarter ended March 31, 2022, compared to $511,000 or 0.02% for the fourth quarter of 2021, and $1.2 million or 0.03% for the first quarter of 2021.

Provision for Credit Losses
For the quarter ended March 31, 2022, the Company recorded a provision for credit losses of $2.8 million, compared to a negative provision for credit losses of $1.0 million in the previous quarter, and a negative provision for credit losses of $13.6 million recorded during the same quarter in 2021. The provision for credit losses for the first quarter of 2022 reflected a provision of $2.8 million for loan losses and no provision for unfunded commitments.

Allowance for Credit Losses
At March 31, 2022, the ACL was $110.6 million and included an allowance for loan and lease losses (“ALLL”) of $102.6 million and a reserve for unfunded commitments (“RUC”) of $8.0 million. The ACL at March 31, 2022 increased $2.8 million from December 31, 2021, primarily due to increased uncertainty in the macroeconomic outlook and the impact of loan growth in the first quarter of 2022.

The ACL and ALLL as a percentage of total loans was 0.82% and 0.76%, respectively, at March 31, 2022, consistent with December 31, 2021.

NONINTEREST INCOME

Noninterest income declined $6.2 million to $30.2 million for the quarter ended March 31, 2022 from $36.4 million in the prior quarter, primarily due to a $5.1 million gain from the sale of Visa, Inc. Class B common stock recorded in the prior quarter, a decrease in unrealized gains on equity method investments of $1.4 million, a $589,000 decline in bank owned life insurance revenue due to death benefit proceeds received in the prior quarter, a decrease of $217,000 in interchange fees due to a decline in transaction volumes, a decrease in mortgage banking income of $213,000 due to a seasonal decline in mortgage origination volumes, and a $212,000 decline in service charges on deposit accounts. These noninterest category declines were partially offset by an increase in loan interest rate swap fee income of $2.4 million due to higher transaction volumes.

NONINTEREST EXPENSE

Noninterest expense decreased $14.6 million to $105.3 million for the quarter ended March 31, 2022 from $119.9 million in the prior quarter, primarily driven by a decrease in restructuring expenses, as the prior quarter reflected $16.5 million related to the closure of the Company’s operations center and the consolidation of 16 branches that was completed in March 2022, compared to $5.5 million of similar expenses this quarter. In addition, noninterest expenses declined in several expense categories from the prior quarter including a decrease in technology and data processing expenses of $747,000 primarily driven by a software contract termination cost incurred in the prior quarter, a reduction of $590,000 in professional services expenses associated with strategic projects, a $434,000 decrease in equipment expenses, and a decrease in marketing and advertising expenses of $382,000. Partially offsetting these expense reductions, salaries and benefits expense increased by $328,000 during the first quarter, as seasonal increases in payroll related taxes and 401(k) contribution expenses in the first quarter of 2022 were offset by a decrease in performance based variable incentive compensation and profit-sharing expenses.

INCOME TAXES

The effective tax rate for the three months ended March 31, 2022 was 17.5%, compared to 14.4% for the three months ended December 31, 2021, reflecting the impact of changes in the proportion of tax exempt income to pre-tax income.

BALANCE SHEET

At March 31, 2022, total assets were $19.8 billion, a decrease of $282.4 million or approximately 5.7% (annualized) from December 31, 2021, and a decrease of $72.2 million or approximately 0.4% from March 31, 2021. Total assets declined from the prior quarter due to a decrease in cash and cash equivalents of $406.2 million primarily related to the deployment of excess liquidity to fund loan growth of $263.5 million and deposit run-off of $126.8 million. In addition, the Company incurred a decrease in the investment securities portfolio of $159.5 million primarily due to a decline in the market value of the AFS securities portfolio.

At March 31, 2022, loans held for investment (net of deferred fees and costs) totaled $13.5 billion, including $67.4 million in PPP loans, an increase of $263.5 million or 8.1% (annualized) from December 31, 2021, while average loans at March 31, 2022 increased $218.4 million or 6.8% (annualized) from the prior quarter. Excluding the effects of the PPP(1), loans held for investment (net of deferred fees and costs) at March 31, 2022 increased $346.4 million or 10.8% (annualized) from December 31, 2021, and average loans increased $403.5 million or 12.8% (annualized) from the prior quarter. Loans held for investment (net of deferred fees and costs) decreased $812.9 million or 5.7% from March 31, 2021, and quarterly average loans decreased $763.3 million or 5.4% from the same period in the prior year. Excluding the effects of the PPP(1), loans held for investment (net of deferred fees and costs) at March 31, 2022 increased $632.3 million or 5.0% from the same period in the prior year, and quarterly average loans during the first quarter of 2022 increased $443.0 million or 3.5% from the same period in the prior year.

At March 31, 2022, total deposits were $16.5 billion, a decrease of $126.8 million or approximately 3.1% (annualized) from December 31, 2021, and average deposits decreased $346.8 million or 8.3% (annualized) from the prior quarter. Deposits at March 31, 2022 increased $186.2 million or 1.1% from March 31, 2021, and quarterly average deposits at March 31, 2022 increased $439.7 million or 2.7% from the same period in the prior year. The increase in deposits from the prior year was primarily due to additional liquidity of bank customers due to higher levels of government assistance programs since the start of the COVID-19 global pandemic (“COVID-19”) and increased savings. The decrease in deposits from the prior quarter is primarily attributable to maturing time deposits.

The following table shows the Company’s capital ratios at the quarters ended:

     March 31,     December 31,     March 31,  
  2022 2021 2021 
Common equity Tier 1 capital ratio (2) 9.86%10.24%10.56%

Common equity to total assets 11.79%12.68%12.81%
Tangible common equity to tangible assets (1) 7.21%8.20%8.24%


For the quarter ended March 31, 2022, the Company’s common equity to total assets capital ratio and the tangible common equity to tangible assets capital ratio decreased from the prior quarter primarily due to the unrealized losses on the AFS securities portfolio recorded in other comprehensive income due to market interest rate increases in the first quarter of 2022.

During the first quarter of 2022, the Company declared and paid a quarterly dividend on the outstanding shares of Series A Preferred Stock of $171.88 per share (equivalent to $0.43 per outstanding depositary share), consistent with the fourth quarter of 2021 and the first quarter of 2021. During the first quarter of 2022, the Company also declared and paid cash dividends of $0.28 per common share, consistent with the fourth quarter of 2021, and an increase of $0.03, or approximately 12.0%, compared to the first quarter of 2021.

On December 10, 2021, the Company’s Board of Directors authorized a Repurchase Program to purchase up to $100 million of the Company’s common stock through December 9, 2022 in open market transactions or privately negotiated transactions, including pursuant to a trading plan in accordance with Rule 10b5-1 and / or Rule 10b-18 under the Exchange Act. The Repurchase Program followed a prior $125 million share repurchase authorization that was approved by the Company’s Board of Directors during the second quarter of 2021 and was fully utilized by September 30, 2021. During the quarter ended March 31, 2022, the Company repurchased an aggregate of approximately 630,000 shares (or $25.0 million), at an average price of $39.73. No shares were repurchased during the quarter ended December 31, 2021.

(1)   These are non-GAAP financial measures. Net interest income (FTE) and total adjusted revenue (FTE), which are used in computing net interest margin (FTE) and adjusted operating efficiency ratio (FTE), respectively, provide valuable additional insight into the net interest margin and the efficiency ratio by adjusting for differences in tax treatment of interest income sources. The entire FTE adjustment is attributable to interest income on earning assets, which is used in computing yield on earning assets. Interest expense and the related cost of interest-bearing liabilities and cost of funds ratios are not affected by the FTE components.
(2)   These are non-GAAP financial measures. Tangible assets and tangible common equity are used in the calculation of certain profitability, capital, and per share ratios. The Company believes tangible assets, tangible common equity and the related ratios are meaningful measures of capital adequacy because they provide a meaningful base for period-to-period and company-to-company comparisons, which the Company believes will assist investors in assessing the capital of the Company and its ability to absorb potential losses.
(3)   These are non-GAAP financial measures. The Company believes that ROTCE is a meaningful supplement to GAAP financial measures and useful to investors because it measures the performance of a business consistently across time without regard to whether components of the business were acquired or developed internally.
(4)   These are non-GAAP financial measures. Adjusted operating measures exclude the gains or losses related to balance sheet repositioning (principally composed of gains and losses on debt extinguishment), gains or losses on sale of securities, gains on the sale of Visa, Inc. Class B common stock, as well as branch closing and facility consolidation costs (principally composed of real estate, leases and other assets write downs, gains or losses on related real estate sales, as well as severance associated with branch closing and corporate expense reduction initiatives). The Company believes these non-GAAP adjusted measures provide investors with important information about the continuing economic results of the organization’s operations. Prior periods reflect adjustments for previously announced branch closing and corporate expense reduction initiatives.
(5)   All ratios at March 31, 2022 are estimates and subject to change pending the Company’s filing of its FR Y9-C. All other periods are presented as filed.
(6)   These balances reflect the impact of the CARES Act and the joint guidance issued by the five federal bank regulatory agencies and the Conference of State Bank Supervisors on March 22, 2020, as subsequently revised on April 7, 2020, which provides relief for TDR designations and also provides guidance on past due reporting for modified loans.
(7)   The adjusted operating efficiency ratio (FTE) excludes the amortization of intangible assets, gains or losses on sale of securities, gains on the sale of Visa, Inc. Class B common stock, gains or losses related to balance sheet repositioning (principally composed of gains and losses on debt extinguishment), as well as branch closing and facility consolidation costs. This measure is similar to the measure utilized by the Company when analyzing corporate performance and is also similar to the measure utilized for incentive compensation. The Company believes this adjusted measure provides investors with important information about the combined economic results of the organization’s operations. Prior periods reflect adjustments for previously announced branch closing and corporate expense reduction initiatives.
(8)   This is a non-GAAP financial measure. Pre-tax pre-provision adjusted earnings excludes the provision for credit losses, which can fluctuate significantly from period-to-period under the CECL methodology, income tax expense, gains or losses related to balance sheet repositioning (principally composed of gains and losses on debt extinguishment), gains or losses on sale of securities, gains on the sale of Visa, Inc. Class B common stock, as well as branch closing and facility consolidation costs. The Company believes this adjusted measure provides investors with important information about the combined economic results of the organization’s operations. Prior periods reflect adjustments for previously announced branch closing and corporate expense reduction initiatives.
(9)   These are non-GAAP financial measures. PPP adjustment impact excludes the unforgiven portion of PPP loans. The Company believes loans held for investment (net of deferred fees and costs), excluding PPP is useful to investors as it provides more clarity on the Company’s organic growth. The Company also believes that the related non-GAAP financial measures of past due loans still accruing interest as a percentage of total loans held for investment (net of deferred fees and costs), excluding PPP, are useful to investors as loans originated under the PPP carry a Small Business Administration (“SBA”) guarantee. The Company believes that the ALLL as a percentage of loans held for investment (net of deferred fees and costs), excluding PPP, is useful to investors because of the size of the Company’s PPP originations and the impact of the embedded credit enhancement provided by the SBA guarantee.
(10)   The period ended March 31, 2021 has been restated to adjust for certain mortgage loans held for investment that were previously included.
