“Our strong financial results are a byproduct of the investments we have made across each of our businesses,” stated Greg Garrabrants, President and Chief Executive Officer of Axos. “Net loan balances increased by 15.4% annualized, despite cyclical headwinds in our jumbo single family and mortgage warehouse businesses. We continue to generate double-digit net interest income and EPS growth through broad-based loan and deposit growth and an above target net interest margin. Axos Securities, with nearly $3 billion of low-cost deposits, positions us well for a rising interest rate environment.”

Our credit remains strong, with the total amount of non-performing loans declining quarter-over-quarter.”

Third Quarter Fiscal 2022 Income Statement Summary
For the three months ended March 31, 2022, Axos net income attributable to common stockholders was $61.8 million or $1.02 per diluted common share compared to $53.6 million, or $0.89 per diluted share for the three months ended March 31, 2021. Net interest income increased $13.9 million or 10.2% for the three months ended March 31, 2022 compared to the three months ended March 31, 2021, due to an increase in average earning assets, a reduction in the rates paid on interest-bearing demand, savings, and time deposits due to decreases in market deposit rates across the industry, and an increase in non-interest bearing demand deposits.
The provision for credit losses was $4.5 million for the three months ended March 31, 2022 compared to $2.7 million for the three months ended March 31, 2021 primarily due to growth in the loan portfolio.
For the three months ended March 31, 2022, non-interest income was $28.8 million compared to $23.9 million for the three months ended March 31, 2021. The net increase was primarily due to an increase of $5.0 million in broker-dealer fee income driven by custody and mutual fund fees earned by the newly acquired AAS division, and an increase of $1.9 million in banking and service fees, partially offset by a decrease of $3.3 million in mortgage banking income due to year-over-year decline in mortgage refinance volume.
Non-interest expense, comprised of various operating expenses, increased $6.0 million to $86.8 million for the three months ended March 31, 2022 from $80.8 million for the three months ended March 31, 2021. The net increase was primarily driven by increases of $4.6 million in salaries and payroll cost and $2.1 million in data processing. These increases largely result from growth at the Bank as well as the addition of AAS operations.
Balance Sheet Summary
Axos’ total assets increased $1.8 billion, or 12.7%, to $16.1 billion, at March 31, 2022, from $14.3 billion at June 30, 2021, primarily due to an increase of $1.7 billion in loans held for investment. Total liabilities increased by $1.6 billion, or 12.6%, to $14.5 billion at March 31, 2022, from $12.9 billion at June 30, 2021, primarily due to an increase in deposits of $1.9 billion, partially offset by a decrease of $0.2 billion in advances from FHLB and a decrease of $0.3 billion in securities loaned. Stockholders’ equity increased by $0.2 billion, or 13.2%, to $1.6 billion at March 31, 2022 from $1.4 billion at June 30, 2021. The increase was primarily the result of net income of $182.8 million.
The Bank’s Tier 1 core capital to adjusted average assets ratio was 10.51% at March 31, 2022 compared to 9.56% at March 31, 2021.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures
In addition to the results presented in accordance with GAAP, this report includes non-GAAP financial measures such as adjusted earnings, adjusted earnings per diluted common share, and tangible book value per common share. Non-GAAP financial measures have inherent limitations, may not be comparable to similarly titled measures used by other companies and are not audited. Readers should be aware of these limitations and should be cautious as to their reliance on such measures. Although we believe the non-GAAP financial measures disclosed in this report enhance investors’ understanding of our business and performance, these non-GAAP measures should not be considered in isolation, or as a substitute for GAAP basis financial measures.
We define “adjusted earnings”, a non-GAAP financial measure, as net income without the after-tax impact of non-recurring acquisition-related costs and other costs (unusual or non-recurring charges). Adjusted earnings per diluted common share (“adjusted EPS”), a non-GAAP financial measure, is calculated by dividing non-GAAP adjusted earnings by the average number of diluted common shares outstanding during the period. We believe the non-GAAP measures of adjusted earnings and adjusted EPS provide useful information about the Bank’s operating performance. We believe excluding the non-recurring acquisition related costs and other costs (unusual or non-recurring) provides investors with an alternative understanding of Axos’ core business.
Below is a reconciliation of net income, the nearest compatible GAAP measure, to adjusted earnings and adjusted EPS (Non-GAAP) for the periods shown:

Adjusted EPS (Non-GAAP)$1.05 $0.92 $3.12 $2.76 



We define “tangible book value”, a non-GAAP financial measure, as book value adjusted for goodwill and other intangible assets. Tangible book value is calculated using common stockholders’ equity minus mortgage servicing rights, goodwill and other intangible assets. Tangible book value per common share, a non-GAAP financial measure, is calculated by dividing tangible book value by the common shares outstanding at the end of the period. We believe tangible book value per common share is useful in evaluating the Company’s capital strength, financial condition, and ability to manage potential losses.
