Eagle Bancorp, Inc. Announces Record Earnings for the Fourth Quarter of 2011, With Full Year 2011 Earnings Up 47%

BETHESDA, Md., Jan. 25, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Eagle Bancorp, Inc. (the "Company") (Nasdaq:EGBN), the parent company of EagleBank, today announced record quarterly net income of $7.2 million for the quarter ended December 31, 2011, a 42% increase over the $5.1 million net income for the quarter ended December 31, 2010. Net income available to common shareholders increased 49% to $7.0 million ($0.35 per basic and diluted common share), as compared to $4.7 million ($0.24 per basic common share and $0.23 per diluted common share) for the same three month period in 2010.

For the year ended December 31, 2011, the Company's net income was a record $24.6 million, a 47% increase over the $16.7 million for the year ended December 31, 2010. Net income available to common shareholders was $23.0 million ($1.16 per basic common share and $1.14 per diluted common share), as compared to $15.4 million ($0.78 per basic common share and $0.77 per diluted common share) for the year ended December 31, 2010, a 50% increase.

"We are extremely pleased to report continuing trends of strong earnings and balance sheet growth through the fourth quarter of 2011. These results reflect substantial revenue growth, while maintaining solid asset quality," noted Ronald D. Paul, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Eagle Bancorp, Inc. "Our fourth quarter 2011 results represent the twelfth consecutive quarter of increasing net income. The Company's financial results in the most recent quarter, as compared to the same quarter in 2010, have been highlighted by continued growth in both loans and core deposits, a stable and favorable core net interest margin, and higher amounts of noninterest income primarily from much heavier loan refinancing activity in our Residential Lending division," added Mr. Paul. He further noted "that loan growth in the fourth quarter of 2011 of just 1% was impacted by higher levels of loan payoffs. Loan production and loan pipeline activity remains strong. Furthermore, core deposit growth in the fourth quarter continues to be strong. Our total revenue (net interest income plus noninterest income) increased 29% in the fourth quarter of 2011, as compared to the same quarter in 2010, which continues to reflect the organization's desire and ability to lend in the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area as well as our ability to continue building new and expanded client relationships," noted Mr. Paul.

As previously reported, in mid September 2011, EagleBank became the depository for an approximately $618 million noninterest bearing escrow deposit relating to a large class action lawsuit settlement (the "settlement deposit"). Due to the expected short-term nature of these funds, they were invested in excess reserves at the Federal Reserve Bank. These funds, as expected, were disbursed to other financial institutions before year-end 2011. We estimate that these funds contributed approximately $140 thousand to net earnings in the fourth quarter of 2011 and $170 thousand to earnings for the full year 2011. The funds are expected to be re-deposited with EagleBank for disbursement to claim holders in 2012. These funds impacted net earnings but had a substantial negative impact on our net interest margin, return on assets, and the capital leverage position. For this reason, we also reflect the relevant non-GAAP ratios on a basis which excludes this large and unusual short-term transaction.

For the fourth quarter of 2011, the Company recognized one-time costs relating to a merger transaction that was terminated in the fourth quarter which had a pretax cost of $400 thousand. These items negatively impacted fourth quarter earnings by $240 thousand after tax ($0.01 per share).

The higher growth rate in net income available to common shareholders as compared to net income, for both the quarter and full year, is due to lower dividends on preferred stock issued under the Small Business Lending Fund ("SBLF"), which has a dividend rate of 1.00% compared to a 5.00% rate applicable to the TARP preferred stock which was paid-off in July 2011. The Company is eligible for the lowest dividend rate available in the SBLF program due to its growth of SBLF qualified loans.

At December 31, 2011, total assets were $2.83 billion, compared to $2.09 billion at December 31, 2010, a 36% increase. As compared to September 30, 2011, total assets at December 31, 2011 declined by $389 million due substantially to the disbursement of the settlement deposit. Excluding the settlement deposit, total assets grew $229 million (9%) during the fourth quarter of 2011. Total loans were $2.06 billion at December 31, 2011 compared to loans of $1.68 billion at December 31, 2010, a 23% increase. Total deposits were $2.39 billion at December 31, 2011 compared to deposits of $1.73 billion at December 31, 2010, a 39% increase. As compared to September 30, 2011, total deposits at December 31, 2011 declined by $355 million due substantially to the disbursement of the settlement deposit. Excluding the settlement deposit, total deposits grew $263 million (12%) during the fourth quarter of 2011. Due to substantial loan originations by our Residential Lending division in the fourth quarter of 2011, in excess of loans sold, and longer timeframes for purchase by investors due to industry volume, loans held for sale amounted to $176.8 million at December 31, 2011 as compared to $107.9 million at September 30, 2011 and compared to $80.6 million at December 31, 2010. The Company protects itself from changes in interest rates through the use of best efforts forward delivery commitments, with the intent that the buyer has assumed the interest rate risk on the loan. The investment portfolio totaled $313.8 million at December 31, 2011, a 38% increase from the $228.0 million balance at December 31, 2010, as excess liquidity was deployed into new investments. Total borrowed funds (excluding customer repurchase agreements) were stable at $49.3 million at both December 31, 2011 and December 31, 2010. Total shareholders' equity increased to $266.7 million at December 31, 2011, compared to $204.7 million at December 31, 2010. The Company's capital position remains substantially in excess of regulatory requirements for well capitalized status, with a total risk based capital ratio of 11.84% at December 31, 2011. In addition, the tangible common equity ratio (tangible common equity to tangible assets) was 7.29% (7.28% excluding the effect of the settlement deposit) at December 31, 2011.

At December 31, 2011, the Company's nonperforming assets amounted to $36.0 million, representing 1.27% of total assets, compared to $32.0 million of nonperforming assets, or 1.53% of total assets, at December 31, 2010 and $34.4 million, or 1.07% of total assets (1.32% excluding the effect of the settlement deposit), at September 30, 2011. Management remains attentive to early signs of deterioration in borrowers' financial conditions and to taking the appropriate action to mitigate risk. Furthermore, the Company is diligent in placing loans on nonaccrual status and believes, based on its loan portfolio risk analysis, that its allowance for loan losses, at 1.44% of total loans (excluding loans held for sale) at December 31, 2011, is adequate to absorb potential credit losses within the loan portfolio at that date. Included in nonperforming assets at December 31, 2011 were $3.2 million of other real estate owned ("OREO") as compared to $6.7 million at December 31, 2010 and $2.9 million at September 30, 2011.

Analysis of the three months ended December 31, 2011 compared to 2010

For the three months ended December 31, 2011, the Company reported an annualized return on average assets (ROAA) of 0.91% (1.04% excluding the effect of the settlement deposit) as compared to 0.96% for the three months ended December 31, 2010. The annualized return on average common equity (ROAE) for the most recent quarter was 13.40%, as compared to 10.21% for the three months ended December 31, 2010. The higher ROAA ratio (as adjusted for the settlement deposit) and the higher ROAE ratio for the fourth quarter of 2011 as compared to 2010, are due to lower loan loss provisioning cost, and improved cost management and in case of ROAE, additional balance sheet leverage arising from growth in the loan portfolio and a strong net interest margin.

Net interest income increased 33% for the three months ended December 31, 2011 over the same period in 2010, resulting from strong balance sheet growth, as average earning assets increased by 52% (32% excluding the effect of the settlement deposit). For the three months ended December 31, 2011, the net interest margin was 3.65% (4.16% excluding the effect of the settlement deposit) as compared to 4.18% for the three months ended December 31, 2010. The Company believes that its net interest margin (excluding the effect of the settlement deposit) is favorable, despite the significant decline in market interest rates over the past twelve months.

The provision for credit losses was $2.8 million for the three months ended December 31, 2011 as compared to $3.6 million for the three months ended December 31, 2010. At December 31, 2011, the allowance for credit losses represented 1.44% of loans outstanding, as compared to 1.48% at December 31, 2010 and 1.41% at September 30, 2011. The lower provisioning in the fourth quarter of 2011, as compared to both the third quarter of 2011 and the fourth quarter of 2010, is due to lower amounts of loan growth in the fourth quarter of 2011. The lower growth rate of just 1% in the most recent quarter was due substantially to higher loan pay downs, while the pace of loan originations remains solid. Net charge-offs of $1.7 million in the fourth quarter of 2011 represented 0.34% of average loans, excluding loans held for sale, as compared to $1.0 million or 0.26% of average loans, excluding loans held for sale, in the fourth quarter of 2010. Net charge-offs in the fourth quarter of 2011 were primarily attributable to charge-offs of construction loans ($366 thousand), commercial and industrial loans ($780 thousand), the unguaranteed portion of SBA loans ($443 thousand) and consumer loans ($83 thousand).

At December 31, 2011, the allowance for credit losses represented 90% of nonperforming loans as compared to 91% at September, 2011 and 98% at December 31, 2010.

Noninterest income for the three months ended December 31, 2011 increased to $3.9 million from $3.7 million for the three months ended December 31, 2010, a 5% increase. This increase was due primarily to an increase of $320 thousand in gains on sales of residential mortgage loans in the fourth quarter of 2011, as compared to the fourth quarter of 2010, an increase of $249 thousand in service charges on deposit accounts and an increase of $101 thousand in other income, primarily associated with loan fee income offset by a decline of $497 thousand of investment gains in the fourth quarter of 2010. There were no investment securities gains in the fourth quarter of 2011 as compared to investment securities gains of $497 thousand in the fourth quarter of 2010. Excluding such investment securities gains, total noninterest income was $3.9 million for the fourth quarter of 2011 as compared to $3.2 million for the fourth quarter of 2010, an increase of 22%.

The efficiency ratio, which measures the ratio of noninterest expense to total revenue, was 56.97% for the fourth quarter of 2011, as compared to 53.98% for the fourth quarter of 2010. Excluding the impact of merger related expenses, the efficiency ratio was 55.57% for the fourth quarter of 2011. Noninterest expenses were $18.3 million for the three months ended December 31, 2011, as compared to $13.5 million for the three months ended December 31, 2010, a 36% increase. Cost increases for salaries and benefits were $2.9 million primarily due to merit and benefit cost increases, increases in incentive pay, and staffing increases primarily as a result of expansion of the commercial lending and residential lending divisions and new branches. Premises and equipment expenses were $654 thousand higher due primarily to the cost of three new offices and normal increases in lease costs, offset by benefits of branch consolidations during 2010. Marketing and advertising costs increased by $272 thousand due primarily to higher levels of companywide media advertising and higher Residential Lending division marketing in 2011. Data processing costs increased by $403 thousand due to system enhancements and expansion of the bank with the addition of three new branch offices. FDIC insurance premiums were $98 thousand less due to lower FDIC premiums rates which took effect on April 1, 2011. Other expenses increased by $438 thousand for the quarter ended December 31, 2011 compared to the same period in 2010, primarily due to $400 thousand of merger related expenses.

Analysis of the twelve months ended December 31, 2011 compared to 2010

For the twelve months ended December 31, 2011, the Company reported an ROAA of 0.97% (1.01% excluding the effect of the settlement deposit) as compared to 0.86% for the year 2010, while the ROAE was 11.71% in 2011, as compared to 8.74% for the year 2010. The increase in these ratios was due to a combination of an increase in the net interest margin, resulting primarily from lower funding costs, lower credit losses as a percentage of loans, increases in noninterest income, improved operating efficiency and in the case of ROAE additional balance sheet leverage.  

For the twelve months ended December 31, 2011 as compared to 2010, the Company recognized investment gains amounting to $1.4 million, one-time charges relating to merger, system conversion costs, and special marketing expenses which had an aggregate pretax cost of $1.6 million.

In 2011, net interest income increased 29% over the same period for 2010. Average loans (excluding loans held for sale) increased $396 million (26%) and average deposits (excluding the settlement deposit) increased by $414 million (26%). The net interest margin was 3.99% (4.17% excluding the effect of the settlement deposit) for the year 2011, as compared to 4.09% for the year 2010. The Company has been able to maintain loan yields close to 2010 levels due to loan pricing practices, and has been able to reduce its funding costs while maintaining a favorable deposit mix; much of which has occurred from efforts to increase and deepen client relationships.

The provision for credit losses was $11.0 million for the year 2011 as compared to $9.3 million in 2010. The higher provisioning in 2011 as compared to 2010 is primarily attributable to higher loan growth in the twelve months of 2011 compared to 2010 ($381 million as compared to $276 million). For the twelve months ended December 31, 2011, net charge-offs totaled $6.1 million (0.32% of average loans) compared to $5.2 million (0.35% of average loans) for the twelve months ended December 31, 2010. Net charge-offs in the twelve months ended December 31, 2011 were primarily attributable to charge-offs of commercial real estate loans ($151 thousand), commercial and industrial loans ($3.4 million), construction loans ($1.2 million), the unguaranteed portion of SBA loans ($877 thousand), home equity loans ($292 thousand), and mortgage and consumer loans ($176 thousand).

Noninterest income for the twelve months of 2011 was $13.5 million compared to $9.2 million in 2010, an increase of 46%. This increase was due primarily to a $3.0 million increase in gains on the sale of residential loans due substantially to higher levels of residential lending refinancings, a $261 thousand increase in gains realized on the sale of SBA loans and a $115 thousand increase in gains realized on the sale of investments. Other noninterest income increased by $702 thousand primarily due to higher levels of other loan fee income and increased ATM fees. Excluding investment securities gains, total noninterest income was $12.1 million for the twelve months of 2011 as compared to $7.9 million for 2010, a 52% increase.

Noninterest expenses were $63.3 million for the twelve months of 2011, as compared to $51.0 million for 2010, a 24% increase. This increase includes $1.7 million from a combination of non-recurring merger related expenses, system enhancements from a bank wide conversion in April 2011, and special events marketing. Cost increases for salaries and benefits were $9.0 million primarily due to merit and benefit cost increases, increases in incentive pay, and staffing increases primarily as a result of expansion of the commercial lending and Residential Lending divisions and new branches. Legal, accounting, and professional fees increases of $987 thousand were due substantially to resolution of problem loans and related collection costs. Premises and equipment expenses were $89 thousand lower due primarily to benefits from the consolidation of two branches offsetting the cost of three new offices and other normal costs increases during 2011. Marketing and advertising costs increased by $568 thousand due primarily to higher advertising and promotional expenses related to Residential Lending and non-recurring special event marketing noted above. Data processing costs increased by $925 thousand due to system enhancements, noted above, expanded customer base, and the addition of three new branch offices. FDIC insurance premiums on the higher levels of deposits were $497 thousand lower for the twelve months in 2011 as compared to 2010 due to a lower FDIC premium rate which took effect on April 1, 2011. Other expenses increases for the twelve months of 2011 versus 2010 amounted to $1.4 million associated primarily with merger expenses of $733 thousand and $554 thousand of conversion expenses. For the twelve months of 2011, the efficiency ratio improved to 56.22% as compared to 59.26% for the same period in 2010. Cost control remains a key operating objective of the Company.

At December 31, 2011, the Company had a total risk based capital ratio of 11.84%, a Tier 1 risk based capital ratio of 10.33%, and a Tier 1 leverage ratio of 8.21%, all measures substantially above the regulatory requirements for well capitalized status.

During the fourth quarter of 2011, EagleBank opened a new branch office in Rosslyn in Northern Virginia and also announced plans to open a branch office in Merrifield in Northern Virginia in the second half of 2012.

(1) Tangible common equity to tangible assets (the "tangible common equity ratio") and tangible book value per common share are non-GAAP financial measures derived from GAAP-based amounts. We calculate the tangible common equity ratio by excluding the balance of intangible assets from common shareholders' equity and dividing by tangible assets. We calculate tangible book value per common share by dividing tangible common equity by common shares outstanding, as compared to book value per common share, which we calculate by dividing common shareholders' equity by common shares outstanding. We believe that this information is 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.

(2) Computed by dividing noninterest expense by the sum of net interest income and noninterest income.

(3) The reported figure includes the effect of a $618 million deposit received on September 13, 2011 in connection with a class action settlement, which was disbursed by year end. The deposit was invested in excess reserves at the Federal Reserve. As the magnitude of the deposit distorts the operational results of the Company, we present in the GAAP reconciliation below and in the accompanying text certain performance ratios excluding the effect of this deposit, which resulted in approximately $254,000 and $326,000 of interest income and $140,000 and $170,000 of income, net of tax, during the three and twelve months periods ended December 31, 2011. We believe this information is important to enable shareholders and other interested parties to assess the core operational performance of the Company.
