Second Quarter 2019 Net Income Up 23.4% from Second Quarter 2018

CORAL GABLES, Fla., July 26, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Amerant Bancorp Inc. (NASDAQ: AMTB and AMTBB) (the “Company”) today reported second quarter 2019 net income of $12.9 million and net income of $25.9 million for the six months ended June 30, 2019, 23.4% higher than the $10.4 million reported in the second quarter of 2018 and 30.6% higher than the $19.9 million reported in the six months ended June 30, 2018.  Net income per diluted share was $0.30 in the second quarter of 2019, up 20.0% compared to $0.25 per diluted share in the second quarter of 2018.  Net income per diluted share for the six months ended June 30, 2019 was $0.60, up 27.7% compared to $0.47 per diluted share for the six months ended June 30, 2018.

Annualized return on assets (“ROA”) and return on equity (“ROE”) were 0.66% and 6.56%, respectively, in the second quarter of 2019, up from 0.50% and 5.57%, in the second quarter of 2018, respectively. ROA and ROE for the latest six months were 0.66% and 6.76%, respectively, compared to 0.47% and 5.31%, respectively, for the first six months of 2018.

“In the second quarter, we continued to build on our earlier successes, achieving significant progress around the transformation strategy and profitability and efficiency initiatives outlined over the past few quarters,” said Millar Wilson, Vice Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of the Company. “Achievements included increasing profitability, successfully launching our new brand across all our markets, divesting non-core loan portfolios, gains in customers’ share of wallet, continued workforce realignments achieving cost savings that began in the fourth quarter of 2018, and calling $25.0 million of our most expensive trust preferred securities. As a result of our efforts to simplify how we manage our business and decrease our foreign loans, we are eliminating our financial statements segment reporting for this quarter and historically. We reached an important milestone in June when we were included in the Russell 2000® Index. Our rebranding will be substantially complete by December 31, 2019, and our workforce realignment finished by year end. We expect that the workforce realignment this year will boost our profitability in future periods. We are pleased with the improvements that we’ve made on all fronts these past six months as we continued to implement our profitability initiatives, and look forward to making Amerant a leading community bank.”

Highlights

The highlights of the most recently ended quarter include:

  • Net income of $12.9 million in the second quarter of 2019, 23.4% higher than the $10.4 million reported in the second quarter of 2018, and net income of $25.9 million for the six months ended June 30, 2019,  30.6% higher than the $19.9 million reported in the six months ended June 30, 2018.
  • Net interest margin, or NIM, was 2.92% in the second quarter of 2019, up from 2.77% in the second quarter of 2018. NIM was 2.94% for the first six months of 2019, up from 2.72% in the same period of 2018.
  • Credit quality remained strong. The Company released $1.4 million from the allowance for loan losses in the second quarter of 2019, compared to a $0.2 million provision in the second quarter of 2018. The ratio of non-performing assets to total assets was 0.41% as of June 30, 2019, unchanged compared to June 30, 2018.
  • Noninterest expense was $52.9 million in the second quarter of 2019, up 0.5% compared to $52.6 million in the same quarter of 2018. Noninterest expenses include expenses associated with restructuring activities, including $3.7 million of staff reduction and rebranding costs in the six months ended June 30, 2019. We had non-tax deductible spin-off costs of $6.0 million in the same period of 2018. Adjusted noninterest expense was $50.2 million in the second quarter of 2019, up 1.5% from $49.4 million in the same quarter of 2018
  • The launch of our new “Amerant” brand across all our major markets in April 2019.
  • Increased share of customer wallet with sales of interest rate cap and swap products, to borrowing customers, reaching a record high.
  • The efficiency ratio was 76.8% (74.1%, as adjusted for rebranding and staff reduction costs) for the six months ended June 30, 2019, compared to 79.9% (75.4% as adjusted for spin-off costs) for the corresponding period of 2018.
  • Announced the redemption of $25.0 million of the Company’s 10.60% and 10.18% trust preferred securities and related junior subordinated debentures. When completed in September, these actions will increase annual pretax net income by approximately $2.6 million, and the Company’s capital ratios will continue to exceed regulatory minimums.

Loans and Deposits

In the second quarter of 2019, we continued the Company’s transition to a community bank focused on our local markets and improved profitability.

Total net loans at June 30, 2019 were $5.8 billion, down 6.4% compared to a year-earlier. However, domestic loans, excluding non-relationship Shared National Credits (“SNCs”), increased 8.0% year over year. Our strategy is to let foreign FI loans mature, and continue to divest SNCs where the Company does not have a direct relationship with the borrower. Our sales teams continued their customer relationship-building efforts to achieve a greater share of deposits, credit and wealth management business from their customers.

Total deposits at June 30, 2019 were $5.8 billion, down 8.5% compared to June 30, 2018. The decreases included declines in foreign deposits, mainly from our Venezuelan resident customers of 4.1% in the most recent quarter and 13.7% since June 30, 2018. In the second quarter of 2019, as living conditions in Venezuela remained difficult, our Venezuelan resident customers continued to rely on their U.S. dollar savings to fund daily living expenses. We continue to proactively focus on growing our core domestic deposits, while seeking to reduce attrition in our valued Venezuelan customers’ deposits, by emphasizing and rewarding strong multi-product relationships. Brokered CDs were slightly higher than the prior quarter. However, they have declined 16.2% since June 30, 2018.

Net Interest Income and Net Interest Margin

Second quarter 2019 net interest income was $53.8 million, down 0.4% compared to $54.0 million in the second quarter of 2018. The slight decrease from the second quarter 2018 was primarily due to a decrease in average balance sheet size of $551.9 million or 6.6%, and higher costs of time deposits, partially offset by increases in higher rate loans. The net interest margin for the second quarter of 2019 was 2.92%, an increase of 15 basis points compared to the second quarter of 2018. The increase in the net interest margin is mainly driven by the Company’s focus on higher-yielding domestic relationship loans.

Net interest income for the six months ended June 30, 2019 was $109.2 million, up 2.4% compared to $106.6 million in the comparable period of 2018. The increase from the first half of 2018 was mainly due to an increase in market interest rates since the comparable period of 2018 and the changing mix of the loan portfolio favoring higher-rate domestic loans.  The net interest margin for the first half of 2019 was 2.94%, an increase of 22 basis points compared to the first half of 2018.

Our net interest income and NIM are expected to remain pressured as lower market interest rates are forecast for the rest of 2019. In the second quarter of 2019, $233.9 million of our relationship money market deposit accounts and $121.2 million of our time deposit accounts repriced at overall higher rates compared to the previous quarter. We expect that the costs of new deposits and income on loans may decrease with market rates. Changes in deposit rates may also lag the change in interest rates on our loans and investments.

Noninterest income

In the second quarter of 2019, noninterest income was $14.1 million, down 5.6% compared to the second quarter of 2018. The decline was driven by decreases in income from brokerage, advisory and fiduciary activities. We experienced lower volumes of customer trading in 2019, especially as our foreign customers’ trading in certain Venezuelan securities were halted by U.S. Government sanctions imposed in February 2019. We expect these sanctions to continue to limit our fixed income trading activity for the foreseeable future. Offsetting this trend in the second quarter of 2019 was a $1.0 million gain on the sale of certain municipal bonds. We had realized a $0.9 million gain in the second quarter of 2018 from the early termination of advances from the Federal Home Loan Bank.  The decrease in noninterest income of $1.6 million, or 5.6%, in the first half of 2019 compared to the same period of 2018, included lower data processing and other fees due to the phasing out of services provided to the Company’s former parent and its subsidiaries.

The Company’s assets under management and custody, or AUMs, increased $93.4 million, or 5.5%, to $1.79 billion at June 30, 2019 compared to $1.69 billion at March 31, 2019. AUMs at June 30, 2019 were up $79.1 million, or 4.6% over June 30, 2018. These changes mainly reflect improved market values of the AUMs.

Noninterest expense  

The second quarter 2019 noninterest expense included $2.7 million of restructuring expenses consisting primarily of rebranding and staff reduction costs incurred in connection with our transformation efforts.  The second quarter 2018 noninterest expense included $3.2 million of expenses consisting of legal fees and compensation related expenses incurred in connection with the Company’s spin-off from its former parent, which were non-deductible for federal income tax purposes.  Noninterest expense in the second quarter of 2019 included the amortization of the cost of restricted shares granted to select management and staff in December 2018, as a result of the IPO. The total compensation cost related to these restricted shares is expected to be approximately $6.0 million, or $1.5 million per quarter, through 2019, declining to an estimated cost of $2.7 million in 2020 and $1.1 million in 2021.

Restructuring expenses in the six months ended June 30, 2019, consisted of $2.8 million of rebranding expenses and $0.9 million of staff realignment expenses.

We launched “Amerant” as our new brand across all our markets in April 2019. The launch included rebranding of all digital platforms, new signs in most branches and buildings, and a broad campaign through digital and traditional media focused on brand awareness. We expect our rebranding to be substantially completed during the fourth quarter of 2019, and we expect to spend approximately $1.8 million in additional rebranding expenses for the remainder of 2019. In addition, we expect to incur approximately $1.2 million in CAPEX, which will be amortized over the shorter of seven years (the estimated useful life of our signs), the remaining life of owned buildings or the remaining terms of leased facilities.

Credit Quality

Credit quality continues to be strong. The Company’s foreign FI and non-relationship SNC exposures are being reduced as planned. The Company released $1.4 million from the allowance for loan losses during the second quarter of 2019, primarily driven by improved quantitative factors in CRE and domestic commercial loans. Improved quantitative factors were partially offset by additional reserve requirements for an $11.6 million loan relationship that was placed in non-accrual in June 2019, the Company’s credit card portfolio, and for growth in domestic loans. The Company recorded no provision during the first quarter of 2019.

The ratio of non-performing assets to total assets increased to 0.41% at the end of the second quarter of 2019, compared to 0.26% from the end of the first quarter of 2019, but remained flat compared to 0.41% at the end of the second quarter of 2018. The increase in the second quarter of 2019 is mostly due to the deterioration of a total of $11.6 million in a combination of CRE, owner occupied, commercial and residential loans to a South Florida customer whose sales in Puerto Rico have not recovered from Hurricanes Maria and Irma in 2017. The CRE, owner occupied and commercial loans had been classified special mention since June 2018.  As of June 2019, all the loans in the relationship were further downgraded and placed in non-accrual.      

Approximately 95% of our credit card holders are foreign, mostly Venezuelan, and the card receivables were reflecting the stresses in the Venezuela economy. In April 2019, we revised our credit card program to further strengthen credit quality. We stopped charge privileges to our smallest and riskiest cardholders and required repayment of their balances by November 2019.  Other cardholders’ charge privileges will end in October 2019 and they will be required to repay all balances by January 2020.  We reduced our credit card receivables from $31.2 million at March 31, 2019 to $26.1 million at June 30, 2019 and increased our allowance for loan losses on credit cards by $1.2 million to a total of $6.5 million. We entered into an arrangement with a major U.S.-based global card issuer and began referring our international customers to it in May. We expect to market this program to all our other foreign customers in Fall 2019.  We have a similar referral program with another card issuer for our domestic customers.  These programs will permit us to serve our customers and earn referral fees and a share of interchange revenue without credit risk.

Capital

Stockholders’ equity was $806.4 million at June 30, 2019, up 12.1% compared to $719.4 million at June 30, 2018, mainly driven by net income and other comprehensive income stemming from higher market valuations in the Company’s available for sale investment portfolio. Stockholders’ book value per common share was $18.66 on June 30, 2019 compared to $16.93 a year ago. Tangible stockholders’ book value per common share was $18.18 on June 30, 2019 compared to  $16.43 a year ago.

The Company’s capital is strong and well in excess of minimum regulatory requirements to be considered “well-capitalized.” The Company’s capital will continue to exceed regulatory minimums after we complete the redemption of the Company’s 10.60% and 10.18% trust preferred securities and related junior subordinated debentures in September 2019.

(1) Outstanding loans are net of deferred loan fees and costs and net of the allowance for loan losses. At March 31, 2019, total loans include $10.0 million in loans held for sale. There were no loans held for sale at any of the other dates presented.
(2) In July 2019, the Company called $25.0 million of its 10.60% and 10.18% trust preferred securities and related junior subordinated debentures, which will be redeemed by September 2019.
(3) The earnings per common share reflect the October 2018 reverse stock split which reduced the number of outstanding shares on a 1-for-3 basis.
(4) This Non-GAAP financial information is reconciled to GAAP in Exhibit 2 - Non-GAAP Financial Measures Reconciliation.
(5) As of June 30, 2019 and March 31, 2019, potential dilutive instruments included 738,138 unvested shares of restricted stock, including 736,839 shares of restricted stock issued in December 2018 in connection with the Company’s IPO and 1,299 additional shares of restricted stock issued in January 2019. As of June 30, 2019 and March 31, 2019, these 738,138 unvested shares of restricted stock were included in the diluted earnings per share computation because, when the unamortized deferred compensation cost related to these shares was divided by the average market price per share at those dates, fewer shares would have been purchased than restricted shares assumed issued. Therefore, at those dates, such awards resulted in higher diluted shares outstanding weighted averages than basic shares outstanding weighted averages in the six months ended June 30, 2019, and had a dilutive effect in per share earnings in the first quarter of 2019 and for the six months ended June 30, 2019. We had no outstanding dilutive instruments as of any period prior to December 2018.
(6) Special cash dividend of $40.0 million paid to the Company’s former parent in connection with the spin-off.
(7) Operating data for the three and the six month periods presented have been annualized.
(8) Net interest margin is net interest income divided by average interest-earning assets, which are loans, investment securities, deposits with banks and other financial assets which, yield interest or similar income.
(9) Calculated based upon the average daily balance of total assets.
(10) Calculated based upon the average daily balance of stockholders’ equity.
(11) Total stockholders’ equity divided by total risk-weighted assets, calculated according to the standardized regulatory capital ratio calculations.
(12) Tier 1 capital divided by total risk-weighted assets.
(13) Tier 1 capital divided by quarter to date average assets. Tier 1 capital is composed of Common Equity Tier 1 (CET 1) capital plus outstanding qualifying trust preferred securities of $114.1 million at each date shown. $25.0 million of these trust preferred securities will be redeemed by September 2019. See footnote 2.
(14) Common Equity Tier 1 (CET 1) capital divided by total risk-weighted assets.
(15) Tangible common equity is calculated as the ratio of common equity less goodwill and other intangibles divided by total assets less goodwill and other intangible assets. Other intangibles assets are included in other assets in the Company’s consolidated balance sheets.
(16) Non-performing assets include all accruing loans past due by more than 90 days, and all nonaccrual loans and OREO properties acquired through or in lieu of foreclosure. Non-performing assets were $32.8 million, $20.5 million, and $35.3 million as of June 30, 2019, March 31, 2019, and June 30, 2018, respectively.
(17) Non-performing loans include all accruing loans past due by more than 90 days, and all nonaccrual loans. Non-performing loans were $32.8 million, $20.5 million, and $34.7 million as of June 30, 2019, March 31, 2019, and June 30, 2018, respectively.
(18) Allowance for loan losses was $57.4 million, $60.3 million, and $69.9 million as of June 30, 2019, March 31, 2019, and June 30, 2018, respectively.

(21) This presentation contains adjusted financial information, including adjusted noninterest expenses, and the other adjusted items shown, determined by methods other than GAAP. These adjusted financial information is reconciled to GAAP in Exhibit 2 - Non-GAAP Financial Measures Reconciliation.
(22) Adjusted efficiency ratio is the efficiency ratio less the effect of restructuring and spin-off costs, described in Exhibit 2 - Non-GAAP Financial Measures Reconciliation.

Exhibit 2- Non-GAAP Financial Measures Reconciliation

The following table sets forth selected financial information derived from the Company’s interim unaudited and annual audited consolidated financial statements, adjusted for certain costs incurred by the Company in the periods presented related to tax deductible restructuring and non-deductible spin-off costs.

(1) Expenses incurred for actions designed to implement the Company’s strategy as a new independent company. These actions include, but are not limited to reductions in workforce, streamlining operational processes, rolling out the Amerant brand, implementation of new technology system applications, enhanced sales tools and training, expanded product offerings and improved customer analytics to identify opportunities.
(2) The spin-off caused an unexpected early distribution for U.S. federal income tax purposes from our deferred compensation plan. This distribution was taxable to plan participants as ordinary income during 2018. We partially compensated plan participants, in the aggregate amount of $1.2 million, for the higher tax expense they incurred as a result of the distribution increasing the plan participants' estimated effective federal income tax rates by recording a contribution to the plan on behalf of its participants. The after tax net effect of this $1.2 million contribution for the period ended June 30, 2018, was approximately $952,000. As a result of the early taxable distribution to plan participants, we expensed and deducted for federal income tax purposes, previously deferred compensation of approximately $8.1 million, resulting in an estimated tax credit of $1.7 million, which exceeded the amount of the tax gross-up paid to plan participants.
(3) Calculated based upon the estimated annual effective tax rate for the periods, which excludes the tax effect of discrete items, and the amounts that resulted from the permanent difference between spin-off costs that are non-deductible for Federal and state income tax purposes, and total spin-off costs recognized in the consolidated financial statements. The estimated annual effective rate applied for the calculation differs from the reported effective tax rate since it is based on a different mix of statutory rates applicable to these expenses and to the rates applicable to the Company and its subsidiaries.
(4) As of June 30, 2019 and March 31, 2019, potential dilutive instruments included 738,138 unvested shares of restricted stock, including 736,839 shares of restricted stock issued in December 2018 in connection with the Company’s IPO and 1,299 additional shares of restricted stock issued in January 2019. As of June 30, 2019 and March 31, 2019, these 738,138 unvested shares of restricted stock were included in the diluted earnings per share computation because, when the unamortized deferred compensation cost related to these shares was divided by the average market price per share at that date, fewer shares would have been purchased than restricted shares assumed issued. Therefore, at those dates, such awards resulted in diluted shares outstanding weighted averages to be higher than basic shares outstanding weighted averages in six months ended June 30, 2019, and had a dilutive effect in per share earnings in the first quarter of 2019 and for the six months ended June 30, 2019. We had no outstanding dilutive instruments as of any period prior to December 31, 2018.

Exhibit 3 - Average Balance Sheet, Interest and Yield/Rate Analysis

The following tables present average balance sheet information, interest income, interest expense and the corresponding average yields earned and rates paid for the periods presented.  The average balances for loans include both performing and nonperforming balances.  Interest income on loans includes the effects of discount accretion and the amortization of net deferred loan origination costs accounted for as yield adjustments.  Average balances represent the daily average balances for the periods presented.
