The Company's Board of Directors declared a quarterly dividend of $0.30 per share
Sioux Falls, SD - January 28, 2020 - Great Western Bancorp, Inc. (
NYSE: GWB) today reported net income of $43.3 million, or $0.77 per diluted share, for the first quarter of fiscal year 2020, compared to net income of $50.3 million, or $0.89 per diluted share, for the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2019.
"We are pleased with the start to our 2020 fiscal year with good earnings underpinned by us managing the cost of our deposits and expenses well," said Ken Karels, Chairperson of the Board, President and Chief Executive Officer. "While we have seen substandard loan balances increase through the quarter due to the migration of a small number of individual exposures, we feel comfortable with our strategies of working with customers to rehabilitate or exit many of these relationships."
Net Interest Income and Net Interest Margin2
Net interest income was $106.7 million, a decrease of $1.5 million, or 1.4%. The decrease was due to lower loan interest income as a result of a decrease in average loans outstanding, combined with a $2.0 million net reversal of interest income on loans moved to nonaccrual during the quarter, partially offset by a 20 basis point decrease in the cost of deposits.
Net interest margin was 3.68% and 3.70% for the quarters ended December 31, 2019 and September 30, 2019, respectively. Adjusted net interest margin1, which adjusts for the realized gain (loss) on interest rate swaps, was 3.65% and 3.69%, respectively, for the same periods. The lower margins were primarily driven by the yield on loans, which included a 7 basis point reduction in net interest margin due to the net reversal of interest income noted above, partially offset by a 20 basis point decrease in the cost of deposits to 0.86%.
Total loans outstanding were $9.63 billion as of December 31, 2019, a decrease of $80.5 million, or 0.8%. The decline in loans during the quarter was mainly attributable to the commercial non-real estate segment of the portfolio, which decreased by $43.5 million, or 2.5%, due to disbursement transaction timing within our mortgage warehouse lending, a reduction in the agriculture segment of $28.0 million, or 1.4%, primarily due to the workout of a small number of large relationships and a decrease of $7.7 million, or 0.2%, in CRE impacted by a number of loans refinancing with other institutions due to lower rates.
Total deposits were $10.09 billion as of December 31, 2019, a decrease of $211.8 million, or 2.1%, due to a reduction in the use of brokered deposits offset by increases in both consumer and business deposits. Interest-bearing deposits were $8.06 billion, a 3.4% decrease, and noninterest-bearing deposits were $2.03 billion, a 3.8% increase. FHLB and other borrowings increased by $235.0 million, or 69.1%, due to favorable rates making them a more cost-effective source of funding.
Provision for Loan and Lease Losses and Asset Quality
Provision for loan and lease losses was $8.1 million, an increase of $6.1 million. Net charge-offs were $6.1 million, or 0.25% of average total loans on an annualized basis, with the majority of net charge-offs concentrated in the agriculture and commercial non-real estate segments of the loan portfolio. The ratio of allowance for loan and lease losses ("ALLL") to total loans increased to 0.76% as of December 31, 2019 from 0.73% as of September 30, 2019.
