Eagle Bancorp, Inc. Announces Net Income for First Quarter 2022 of $45.7 Million or $1.42 Per Diluted Share

BETHESDA, Md., April 20, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Eagle Bancorp, Inc. (the "Company") (NASDAQ: EGBN), the parent company of EagleBank (the "Bank"), today announced net income of $45.7 million for the first quarter 2022 compared to net income of $41.6 million for the prior quarter and $43.5 million for the year-ago quarter. Net income was $1.43 per share (basic) and $1.42 per share (diluted) for the first quarter 2022, compared to basic and diluted shares of $1.30 per share for the prior quarter and $1.36 per share for the year-ago quarter.

The increase in earnings of $4.1 million from the prior quarter was primarily driven by a decrease in non-interest expense from an accrual reduction of $5.0 million related to share-based compensation awards and deferred compensation to our former CEO and Chairman. The increase to earnings from this accrual reduction was partially offset by (in comparison to the prior quarter) a smaller reversal of the provision for credit losses on loans and a decline in noninterest income.

First Quarter 2022 Highlights

  • Loans increased by $48.2 million from the prior quarter-end. This was the second consecutive quarterly increase.
  • There was a reversal of $2.8 million from the provision for credit losses on loans. This was the fifth consecutive quarterly reversal.
  • Salaries and employee benefits decreased $7.6 million from the prior quarter, primarily due to an accrual reduction of $5.0 million related to share-based compensation awards and deferred compensation associated with our former CEO and Chairman.
  • During the quarter, $1.1 billion of securities designated as available-for-sale ("AFS") were transferred to held-to-maturity ("HTM"), net of $66 million of unrealized losses, and a portion of securities purchased during the quarter were designated as securities HTM. At quarter-end, $1.2 billion, or 39.3% of the securities portfolio, was classified as securities HTM.
  • The increase in the overall interest rate environment created unrealized losses in securities AFS that are recorded in accumulated other comprehensive income. As a result, shareholders' equity, book value per share and tangible book value per share declined from the prior quarter-end.

CEO Commentary

Susan G. Riel, President and Chief Executive Officer of Eagle Bancorp, Inc. commented, "The results for the first quarter represent a continuation of our strong performance from last year. Loan balances increased for a second consecutive quarter and asset quality metrics continue to improve."

"This quarter's loan growth was driven by growth from our CRE and C&I lending teams. We were also successful in migrating many of our construction loans into income producing CRE as projects were completed."

"Even with the completion of construction projects, our pipeline remains strong as unfunded commitments were up slightly to $2.1 billion at quarter-end. As more opportunities arise, our total risk-based capital of 15.72%, gives us ample room to continue to grow the loan portfolio."

"For our shareholders, we remain focused on increasing value and returning cash through dividends. At the end of the quarter, our board declared a dividend of $0.40 per share, which is a payout ratio of 28% based on first quarter earnings."

"We once again thank all of our employees for their commitment in serving the needs of our clients and communities. Additionally, we remain committed to a culture of respect, diversity and inclusion in both the workplace and the communities we serve."

Income Statement

  • Net interest income was $80.5 million for the first quarter 2022, compared to $78.2 million for the prior quarter and $82.7 million for the year-ago quarter. The increase in net interest income from the prior quarter was driven by the deployment of excess liquidity into investment securities, partially offset by lower interest and fees on loans.

  • Net interest margin was 2.65% for the first quarter 2022, compared to 2.55% for the prior quarter and 2.98% for the year-ago quarter. The increase in margin from the prior quarter was primarily attributable to an increase in the investment of excess liquidity into higher earning assets, including securities. Average securities (both securities AFS and securities HTM) were $730 million higher than in the prior quarter.
    • The yield on the loan portfolio was 4.35% for the first quarter 2022, compared to 4.45% for the prior quarter and 4.65% for the year-ago quarter. Loan yields were down 10 basis points from the prior quarter as higher yielding loans continued to be replaced by lower yielding loans, and the impact of rising rates on existing adjustable rate loans and new loans occurred later in the first quarter.
    • The cost of funds was 0.26% for first quarter 2022, compared to 0.26% for the prior quarter and 0.42% for the year-ago quarter. While it did not have much of an impact on the first quarter of 2022, in the last half of March, rates on most interest bearing demand deposit accounts were increased by 5 basis points and a Federal Home Loan Bank ("FHLB") advance of $150 million was repaid.

  • Pre-provision net revenue ("PPNR"),3 a non-GAAP measure, was $56.9 million for the first quarter 2022, compared to $49.5 million for the prior quarter and $55.3 million for the year-ago quarter. As a percent of average assets, adjusted PPNR for the first quarter 2022 was 1.79%, compared to 1.56% for the prior quarter and 1.95% for the year-ago quarter. This increase in PPNR as a percent of average assets from the prior quarter was primarily attributable to lower noninterest expense driving the larger 15.0% increase in PPNR over the smaller 1.3% increase in average assets.

  • Provision for credit losses on loans was a reversal of $2.8 million for the first quarter 2022, compared to a reversal of $6.4 million for the prior quarter and a reversal of $2.4 million for the year-ago quarter. The first quarter 2022 reversal was primarily driven by improvements in the economic environment, and related adjustments to the quantitative components of the CECL model, in particular the lower modeled probability of default, as well as improvements in asset quality.

  • Noninterest income was $7.5 million for the first quarter 2022, as compared to $10.6 million for the prior quarter and $10.6 million for the year-ago quarter. The decline in noninterest income from the prior quarter was primarily due to decreases in Federal Housing Administration ("FHA") multifamily income, lower gain on sale of investment securities and lower gain on sale of residential mortgage loans.

    Residential mortgage loan locked commitments were $136.7 million, down from $163.0 million the prior quarter and down from $303.3 million for the year-ago quarter. As interest rates rose in the first quarter, the refinance activity slowed resulting in fewer locked loans.

  • Noninterest expense was $31.0 million for the first quarter 2022 compared to $39.3 million for the prior quarter and $38.0 million for the year-ago quarter. The major changes from the prior quarter were as follows:
    • Salaries and employee benefits were $17.0 million, down $7.6 million from the prior quarter. The decrease was primarily due to the reduction of the $5.0 million accrual related to share-based compensation awards and deferred compensation for our former CEO and Chairman in the first quarter of 2022, because we believe any compensation related claims are now time barred under Maryland law. The accrual was originally recorded in the first quarter of 2019. Absent the accrual reduction, salaries and employee benefits were down $2.6 million4 from the prior quarter, primarily on lower incentive bonus accruals offset by increases in share based compensation and payroll taxes.
    • Legal, accounting and professional fees were $1.6 million, down $1.4 million from the prior quarter.
  • Efficiency ratio5 was 35.3% for the first quarter 2022 compared to 44.3% for the prior quarter and 40.7% for the year-ago quarter. The improvement in the efficiency ratio from the prior quarter was primarily driven by the decrease in noninterest expense (see noninterest expense section above).

  • Effective income tax rate for the first quarter 2022 was 23.4%, compared to 26.3% for the prior quarter and 25.1% for the year-ago quarter. The reduction in the effective tax rate from the prior quarter was attributable to the decrease in noninterest expense related to the accrual reduction discussed above in noninterest expenses. This accrual was not tax deductible when recorded, conversely there was no negative tax impact when the accrual was reduced.

Balance Sheet

  • Total assets at March 31, 2022 were $11.2 billion, down 5.4% from a quarter ago and up 0.8% from a year ago. The decrease from the prior quarter-end was driven by the utilization of interest-bearing deposits with banks and other short-term investments to satisfy deposit outflows and the repayment of a $150 million FHLB advance.

  • Investment securities (AFS and HTM) had a balance of $2.9 billion at March 31, 2022, up 11.6% from a quarter ago and up 113.9% from a year ago. The increase from the prior quarter-end was primarily due to more excess liquidity being invested in higher earning assets in response to higher rates on investments available in the market during the quarter. Investments at quarter-end were $306 million higher than that of the prior quarter-end, and investments made during the first quarter of 2022 were primarily agency mortgage backed securities and agency bonds.

    At quarter-end, securities HTM were $1.2 billion of investment securities (AFS and HTM). The transfer of securities from AFS to HTM and purchases of securities designated as HTM during the quarter will reduce the impact of changes in interest rates on capital and tangible capital.

  • Total loans (excluding loans held for sale) were $7.1 billion as of March 31, 2022, up 0.7% from a quarter ago and down 5.5% from a year ago. Excluding PPP loans, loan balances were $7.1 billion as of March 31, 2022, up 0.9% from a quarter ago and up 1.7% from a year ago.6 The increase in loans, excluding PPP loans, from the prior quarter-end was driven by growth from commercial real estate ("CRE") loans and commercial & industrial loans ("C&I").

  • Allowance for credit losses was 1.01% of total loans at March 31, 2022, compared to 1.06% a quarter ago, and 1.36% a year ago. The reduction in the allowance for credit losses as a percent of total loans from the prior quarter-end was primarily driven by the reversal of the allowance for credit losses.

    Net charge-offs as a percent of average loans (excluding loans held for sale) (on an annualized basis), was 0.03% for the first quarter 2022, as compared to 0.07% a quarter ago, and 0.27% for the year-ago quarter. Net charge-offs for the quarter were $459 thousand.
  • Nonperforming loans and assets: Both nonperforming loans and assets decreased compared to the prior quarter and the year-ago quarter as there were no new nonaccrual loans or assets added since the prior quarter-end and several nonaccrual loans from the prior quarter-end became current, were charged-off or paid-down.
    • Nonperforming loans as a percent of loans were 0.33% at March 31, 2022, compared to 0.41% a quarter ago and 0.69% a year ago.
    • Nonperforming assets as a percent of assets were 0.23% at March 31, 2022, compared to 0.26% a quarter ago and 0.51% a year ago.
  • Total deposits were $9.6 billion at March 31, 2022, down 4.0% from a quarter ago and up 4.2% from a year ago. While deposits were down from prior quarter-end, average deposits for the quarter were up, and the deposit mix and cost of funds remains favorable.
    • Average noninterest bearing deposits to average total deposits was 36.1% for the first quarter 2022, compared to 36.3% a quarter ago and 32.0% for the year-ago quarter.
  • Total shareholders’ equity was $1.3 billion at March 31, 2022, down 6.3% from a quarter ago, and up 0.4% from a year ago. The decrease in shareholders' equity from the prior quarter-end was primarily as a result of the increase in the overall interest rate environment, which created unrealized losses in investment securities available for sale, that are recorded in accumulated other comprehensive income. These reductions to equity were partially offset by retained earnings.

    These same factors, along with the issuance of shares from share-based compensation, reduced book value and tangible book value from the prior quarter-end:
    • Book value per share was $39.44, down from $42.28 a quarter ago, and down from $39.45 a year ago.
    • Tangible book value per share7 was $36.19, down from $38.97 a quarter ago, and up from $36.16 a year ago.
  • Dividends: On March 21, 2022, the Board of Directors declared a quarterly cash dividend of $0.40 per common share payable on April 29, 2022 to shareholders of record on April 11, 2022.

  • Capital ratios for the Company remain strong and substantially in excess of regulatory minimum requirements. Regulatory ratios based on risk-weighted assets declined from the prior quarter as non-risk weighted cash was moved into risk-weighted securities and loans. Common capital ratios declined as rising rates created unrealized losses on securities AFS which negatively impacted common equity and tangible common equity.

Non-GAAP Reconciliation (unaudited) - Continued

Tangible common equity to tangible assets (the "tangible common equity ratio"), tangible book value per common share, and the return on average tangible common equity are non-GAAP financial measures derived from GAAP based amounts. The Company calculates the tangible common equity ratio by excluding the balance of intangible assets from common shareholders' equity and dividing by tangible assets. The Company calculates tangible book value per common share by dividing tangible common equity by common shares outstanding, as compared to book value per common share, which the Company calculates by dividing common shareholders' equity by common shares outstanding. The Company calculates the annualized return on average tangible common equity ratio by dividing net income available to common shareholders by average tangible common equity which is calculated by excluding the average balance of intangible assets from the average common shareholders’ equity. The Company considers this information important to shareholders as tangible equity is a measure that is consistent with the calculation of capital for bank regulatory purposes, which excludes intangible assets from the calculation of risk based ratios and as such is useful for investors, regulators, management and others to evaluate capital adequacy and to compare against other financial institutions. The above table provides reconciliation of these financial measures defined by GAAP with non-GAAP financial measures.

Pre-provision net revenue is a non-GAAP financial measure derived from GAAP based amounts. The Company calculates PPNR by subtracting noninterest expenses from the sum of net interest income and noninterest income. PPNR to Average Assets is calculated by dividing the PPNR amount by average assets to obtain a percentage. The Company considers this information important to shareholders because it illustrates revenue excluding the impact of provisions and reversals to the allowance for credit losses on loans. The table in the "Income Statement" section of this earnings release provides a reconciliation of PPNR and PPNR to Average Assets to the nearest GAAP measure.

Total loans excluding PPP loans is a non-GAAP financial measure derived from GAAP based amounts. The Company calculates Total loans excluding PPP loans by subtracting the total amount of outstanding PPP loans from the amount of total loans, excluding loans held for sale. The Company considers this information important to shareholders because it allows investors to see changes in the Company's loan growth without the impact of the PPP loans, which were loan products specific to relief efforts in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Excluding the impact of PPP loans also allows investors to better compare the Company's loan growth to historical periods prior to the pandemic. The table in the "Balance Sheet" section of this earnings release and the table above provides a reconciliation of total loans excluding PPP loans to the nearest GAAP measure.

Efficiency ratio is a non-GAAP measure calculated by dividing GAAP non-interest expense by the sum of GAAP net interest income and GAAP non-interest (loss) income. Management believes that reporting the non-GAAP efficiency ratio more closely measures its effectiveness of controlling operational activities. The table above shows the calculation of the efficiency ratio from these GAAP measures.

Adjusted Salaries and Employee Benefits is a non-GAAP financial measure derived from GAAP based amounts. The Company calculates Adjusted Salaries and Employee Benefits by subtracting from total salaries and employee benefits the one-time accrual reduction of $5.0 million related to share-based compensation awards and deferred compensation for the Company's former CEO and Chairman in the first quarter of 2022. The Company considers this information important to shareholders because the accrual reduction was a one-time event that occurred during the first quarter of 2022. The Adjusted Salaries and Employee Benefits non-GAAP measure provides investors insight into how salaries and employee benefits changed during the first quarter of 2022 exclusive of the one-time accrual reduction, and allows investors to better compare the Company's performance against historical periods. The table above provides a reconciliation of Adjusted Salaries and Employee Benefits to the nearest GAAP measure.
