LOS ANGELES, Jan. 23, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Hanmi Financial Corporation (NASDAQ: HAFC, or “Hanmi”), the parent company of Hanmi Bank (the “Bank”), today reported financial results for the 2023 fourth quarter and full year.

CEO Commentary

“We finished 2023 with positive momentum, delivering strong fourth quarter results and building a solid foundation for 2024,” said Bonnie Lee, President and Chief Executive Officer. “Our full year results reflect our team’s effective execution of our relationship-driven banking strategy, focus on strong credit administration and disciplined expense management. We further optimized our banking network with the opening of two new branch locations in the fourth quarter. Our proven strategies continued to drive growth and diversification in our loan portfolio and expansion of our customer base, all against the backdrop of a challenging interest rate environment and the lingering effects of an uncertain economy.”

“Looking ahead, Hanmi is moving forward with a strong balance sheet, excellent asset quality, a diverse and expanding base of loyal customers and an outstanding team that has repeatedly demonstrated the ability to navigate a variety of economic cycles. We will continue to take a selective and disciplined approach to lending in the current environment with a focus on attractively priced loans and high-quality borrowers, many who will also have a deposit relationship with us. Our consistent performance and growing reputation as a preferred relationship-based banker is enabling us to grow the number of communities we serve. We will also continue to invest in our people, technology and infrastructure to drive operational efficiencies, support disciplined growth and enhance shareholder value.

“I want to thank the entire Hanmi team for their outstanding work this year as well as their dedication to serving our customers and the communities in which we operate. Despite some near-term macroeconomic uncertainty, our future is bright and we will continue to focus on what we do best: building strong relationships and expanding our networks. I look forward to our team delivering another successful year for Hanmi.”

Results of Operations
Net interest income for the fourth quarter decreased $1.8 million to $53.1 million from $54.9 million for the third quarter of 2023, down 3.1%. The decrease was primarily due to an increase in the cost of interest-bearing deposits, partially offset by an increase in interest-earning asset yields. The cost of interest-bearing deposits increased 30 basis points to 3.83% for the fourth quarter of 2023 from 3.53% for the third quarter of 2023. The increase in the cost of interest-bearing deposits was due to higher market interest rates and a shift in the composition of the portfolio to higher-rate deposits. Average interest-bearing deposits were $4.17 billion for the fourth quarter, compared with $4.13 billion for the third quarter. The yield on average loans for the third quarter increased 15 basis points to 5.88% from 5.73% for the third quarter. Average loans were $6.07 billion for the fourth quarter, compared with $5.92 billion for the third quarter of 2023. Fourth quarter loan prepayment fees were $0.1 million, compared with less than $0.1 million for the third quarter. Net interest margin (taxable-equivalent) for the fourth quarter was 2.92% compared with 3.03% for the third quarter.

Net interest income was $221.3 million for the full year 2023 compared with $237.6 million for 2022, a decline of 6.9%. The decrease reflected the rise in the general level of interest rates during 2023, including an increase in the cost of interest-bearing deposits and a shift in the composition of the portfolio to higher-rate deposits, partially offset by an increase in interest-earning asset yields. The cost of interest-bearing deposits for the full year 2023 increased 256 basis points to 3.35% from 0.79% for 2022. Average interest-bearing deposits for the full year 2023 increased to $4.0 billion from $3.3 billion for 2002 where, for the same period, average time deposits increased $1.2 billion. Average interest-earning assets for the full year 2023 increased 5.6% to $7.18 billion from $6.80 billion for 2022. The yield on average interest-earning assets for the full year 2023 increased 112 basis points to 5.15% from 4.03% for 2022. Average loans for the full year 2023 were $5.97 billion, up 6.6% from $5.60 billion for 2022. Full year 2022 loan prepayment fees were $0.8 million compared with $1.3 million for 2022. Net interest margin (taxable-equivalent) for the full year 2023 was 3.08% compared with 3.50% for 2022. The 42 basis point decrease in the net interest margin reflected the increase in the cost of interest-bearing deposits, partially offset by the increase in average loan yields.

Credit loss recovery for the fourth quarter was $2.9 million, which included a $2.9 million recovery for loan losses, offset by a less than $0.1 million provision for off-balance sheet items. There were net loan recoveries of $5.0 million for the fourth quarter that included a $6.0 million recovery from a 2019 troubled loan relationship. For the third quarter, credit loss expense was $5.2 million, which included a $5.2 million provision for loan losses and a recovery for off-balance sheet items of less than $0.1 million.

Credit loss expense was $4.3 million for the full year 2023, compared to a credit loss expense of $0.8 million for 2022. The full year 2023 credit loss expense was comprised of a $4.9 million provision for loan losses and a $0.6 million recovery for off-balance sheet items. The credit loss expense for 2022 was comprised of a $0.3 million provision for loan losses and a $0.5 million provision for off-balance sheet items.

Noninterest income for the fourth quarter declined $4.5 million to $6.7 million from $11.2 million for the third quarter of 2023. The decline primarily reflected the absence of the third quarter $4.0 million gain on the sale-leaseback of a branch property, a $0.2 million decrease in service charges on deposits, and a $0.3 million valuation adjustment to bank-owned life insurance. A $0.3 million increase in the gain on sale of SBA loans partially offset these decreases. The volume of SBA loans sold in the fourth quarter increased to $29.9 million from $21.0 million for the third quarter, while trade premiums decreased to 6.17% for the fourth quarter from 6.84% for the third quarter.

Noninterest income was $34.2 million for the full year 2023, consistent with 2022. Noninterest income for 2023 included a $4.0 million gain on the sale-and-leaseback of a branch property, offset by a $3.8 million decline in gain on sale of SBA loans and a $1.3 million decrease in service charges on deposits. The volume of SBA loans sold for the full year 2023 declined to $100.5 million from $156.1 million and trade premiums also declined to 7.12% from 7.44% for the full year 2022.

Professional fees increased by $0.4 million, advertising and promotion expense increased by $0.5 million and other operating expense increased by $0.6 million. A $0.3 million decline in salaries and employee benefits and a $0.2 million decline in occupancy and equipment expense partially offset the increases noted.

Deposits were $6.28 billion at the end of the fourth quarter of 2023, up $20.5 million, or 0.3%, from $6.26 billion at the end of the preceding quarter. Driving the change was a $158.7 million increase in money market and savings deposits and a $20.2 million increase in time deposits, partially offset by a $157.6 decline in noninterest-bearing demand deposits due primarily to higher rates offered due to the higher interest rate environment and competition for deposits. Noninterest-bearing demand deposits represented 31.9% of total deposits at December 31, 2023 and the loan-to-deposit ratio was 98.4%.

Classified loans were $31.4 million at December 31, 2023, down from $33.1 million at the end of the prior quarter. The $1.7 million decrease was primarily driven by charge-offs of $1.5 million and amortization, paydowns and payoffs of $5.3 million, offset by new downgrades to classified of $5.1 million.

Nonperforming loans were $15.5 million at December 31, 2023, down from $15.8 million at the end of the third quarter. As a percentage of the loan portfolio, nonperforming loans improved to 0.25% at quarter-end, down from 0.26% at the end of the third quarter.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Tangible Common Equity to Tangible Assets Ratio

Tangible common equity to tangible assets ratio is supplemental financial information determined by a method other than in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”). This non-GAAP measure is used by management in the analysis of Hanmi’s capital strength. Tangible common equity is calculated by subtracting goodwill and other intangible assets from stockholders’ equity. Banking and financial institution regulators also exclude goodwill and other intangible assets from stockholders’ equity when assessing the capital adequacy of a financial institution. Management believes the presentation of this financial measure excluding the impact of these items provides useful supplemental information that is essential to a proper understanding of the capital strength of Hanmi. This disclosure should not be viewed as a substitute for results determined in accordance with GAAP, nor is it necessarily comparable to non-GAAP performance measures that may be presented by other companies.

The following table reconciles this non-GAAP performance measure to the GAAP performance measure for the periods indicated:
