Sioux Falls, SD - April 29, 2021 - Great Western Bancorp, Inc. (NYSE: GWB) today reported net income of $51.3 million, or $0.93 per diluted share, for the second quarter of fiscal year 2021, compared to net income of $41.3 million, or $0.75 per diluted share, for the first quarter of fiscal year 2021.
"I am proud of our continued improvement this quarter and the laser focus and dedication of the Great Western team," said Mark Borrecco, President and Chief Executive Officer. "We strengthened our capital position posting net income of $92.6 million and earnings per diluted share of $1.68 through the first half of fiscal year 2021, along with 17.4% return on average common equity. Credit quality also showed progress with both nonaccrual and classified loans down 12.4% this fiscal year, and loans with payment deferrals dropping to $19.7 million. This improvement, along with our allowance for credit loss coverage of 3.50% excluding PPP, reinforces our conservative approach on managing underwriting and risk management of the portfolio as our markets evolve into their new normal post pandemic.
In addition, we are excited to launch our new small business platform, which will transform the small business client experience while reducing our average small business loan closing time from 22 days to 3. This enhancement, along with our investments in treasury management and the improving outlook for the agricultural loan portfolio positions Great Western well for building momentum."
Impact and Response to COVID-19 Pandemic
We remain focused on keeping our employees safe and our bank running effectively to serve our customers. Our branches have been reopened across our footprint, and we are targeting 75% employee occupancy in our offices by June, with plans for return in August involving remote work optionality and adherence to CDC guidelines in the office. For our customers, we have supported PPP, having provided $727.3 million in loans to over 4,800 customers in the first round followed by $196.0 million to over 2,500 customers in the second round. Related to PPP forgiveness, we have processed $356.5 million of loans for over 2,000 customers. Additionally, we have granted both full and partial payment deferrals to help provide relief from COVID-19, which resulted in a peak of $1.69 billion of loans on deferral as of the third quarter of fiscal year 2020. As of April 16, 2021 the balance of loans with a payment deferral was $19.7 million, or 0.24% of total loans excluding PPP, compared to $113.0 million as of January 13, 2021.
Net Interest Income and Net Interest Margin1
Net interest income was $104.4 million for the quarter, a decrease of $5.1 million, while net interest margin was 3.51%, a 12 basis point decrease from 3.63%. Adjusted net interest income2 was $101.3 million, a decrease of $4.8 million, and adjusted net interest margin2 was 3.40%, also a 12 basis point decrease from 3.52%. Interest income was lower by $6.6 million as loan interest decreased by $7.1 million while securities and other interest income increased by $0.5 million. Loan interest reflects a $2.2 million decrease in

Exhibit 99.1
nonaccrual interest recoveries, a $4.4 million decrease driven by lower loan volumes, and a $4.7 million decrease due to lower day count and other loan fees, all partially offset with a net $4.2 million increase in PPP interest and fee income. The decrease in interest income was partially offset by a $1.6 million decrease in interest expense driven by a $0.7 million decrease from lower time deposit volumes and a 16 basis point decrease in yield to 0.52% combined with a net $0.8 million decrease driven primarily by a 5 basis point decrease in yield of interest-bearing deposits to 0.17%.
Noninterest Income
Noninterest income was $17.2 million for the quarter, an increase of $3.0 million from the prior quarter. The increase was driven by a $2.4 million increase in other derivative income from a favorable credit adjustment on derivatives and a $1.7 million improvement in FVO credit risk. These were partially offset by a $1.0 million decrease in service charges from lower overdraft activity and a seasonal decrease in crop insurance revenue.
Noninterest Expense
Total noninterest expense was $59.1 million for the quarter, an increase of $1.7 million from the prior quarter. The increase was driven by a $1.6 million increase in salaries and benefits due to annual merit increases and accrued incentives, a $0.3 million increase in data processing costs due to various software maintenance and upgrades, a $0.4 million increase in consulting costs to support strategic initiatives and a $0.3 million increase in seasonal grounds maintenance. These were partially offset by a $0.4 million decrease in other real estate owned operating costs and a $0.5 million decrease in FDIC insurance premiums.
The efficiency ratio2 was 48.4% for the quarter, compared to 46.2% for the prior quarter.
Provision for Income Taxes
Income tax expense was $14.7 million for the quarter, an increase of $3.3 million from the prior quarter, yielding an effective rate of 22.2% compared to 21.6%.
Asset Quality
The ACL, as quantified by the Company under the CECL methodology adopted October 1, 2020, was $296.0 million as of March 31, 2021, a decrease of $12.8 million from $308.8 million as of December 31, 2020. The decrease was primarily driven by the lower loan volumes and the impact from improved economic forecast assumptions. The ratio of ACL to total loans was 3.28% as of March 31, 2021, an increase from 3.24% as of December 31, 2020. Excluding PPP loans the ratio was 3.50% for the current and prior quarter.
Net charge-offs were $7.8 million, or 0.34% of average total loans (annualized) for the quarter, down $22.6 million and 88 basis points from the prior quarter, respectively. The decrease was driven primarily by $25.6 million of charge-offs that occurred in the prior quarter related to a bulk sale of hotel portfolio loans.
As a result, the provision for credit losses on loans resulted in a $5.0 million net benefit for the quarter, compared to an $11.9 million provision in the prior quarter, as the required reserves released from the decreased loan volume more than offset the net charge-offs in the period.
Included within total loans are approximately $568.9 million of loans, down from $611.6 million as of December 31, 2020, with long-term, fixed rate structures using derivatives for which management has elected the fair value accounting option. These loans are excluded from CECL and the ACL, but management has estimated that approximately $27.4 million of the fair value adjustment for these loans relates to credit risk, which is 4.82% of the fair value option loans and 0.30% of total loans, compared to approximately $27.5 million of the fair value adjustment for these loans relates to credit risk, which is 4.49% of the fair value loans and 0.29% of total loans as of December 31, 2020.
Nonaccrual loans were $284.5 million as of March 31, 2021, a decrease of $7.9 million from $292.4 million as of December 31, 2020, largely driven by two payoffs from successful workouts and no material downgrades. Classified loans, which include nonaccrual loans, were $673.9 million as of March 31, 2021, a decrease of $43.0 million from $716.9 million as of December 31, 2020, driven by a $23.0 million decrease in agriculture loans from a number of upgrades and payoffs, the sale of a $23.5 million classified hotel loan, and the upgrade of a $35.8 million agri-related relationship, all partially offset with $41.4 million in downgraded hotel loans. Total other repossessed property balances were $17.5 million for the quarter, a decrease of $0.6 million from the prior quarter.

1 Beginning in the first quarter of fiscal year 2021, increase (decrease) in unfunded commitment reserve is included in provision for credit losses.
We continue to evaluate the impact of COVID-19 on our loan portfolio. Industries such as hotels & resorts (excluding casino hotels), casino hotels, restaurants, theaters, oil & energy, retail malls, airlines and healthcare have experienced uncharacteristic revenue loss due to COVID-19. Since the beginning of the pandemic we have been closely monitoring the following loan segments (excluding PPP loans) given elevated industry risk from COVID-19: hotels & resorts (excluding casino hotels) with $783.7 million, or 9.3% of total loans, restaurants with $124.3 million, or 1.5% of total loans, arts and entertainment with $119.4 million, or 1.4% of total loans, senior care with $314.2 million, or 3.7% of total loans, and skilled nursing with $212.3 million, or 2.5% of total loans, for a total exposure of $1.55 billion, or 18.4% of total loans excluding PPP loans, and $205.9 million of which was classified as of March 31, 2021. Loan exposure in such other identified industries is either immaterial or has not shown general distress thus far.
Loans and Deposits
Total loans outstanding were $9.01 billion as of March 31, 2021, a decrease of $506.5 million from the prior quarter. The decrease in loans during the quarter was driven by a $132.7 million net decrease in PPP loans, paydowns of criticized loans, commercial real estate loans refinanced in the secondary market and an increase in paydowns across commercial, agriculture and consumer from property sales and excess liquidity.
Total deposits were $11.56 billion as of March 31, 2021, an increase of $190.7 million from the prior quarter, driven by a $202.4 million increase in checking and savings balances and a $59.2 million increase in other interest-bearing deposits, partially offset by a $70.9 million decrease in time deposits.
Capital
Tier 1 and total capital ratios were 13.5% and 15.1%, respectively, as of March 31, 2021, compared to 12.7% and 14.3% as of December 31, 2020. The common equity tier 1 capital ratio and tier 1 leverage ratio were 12.8% and 10.0%, respectively, as of March 31, 2021, compared to 12.0% and 9.7% as of December 31, 2020. All regulatory capital ratios remain above regulatory minimums to be considered "well capitalized."
On April 29, 2021, the Company's Board of Directors declared a dividend of $0.01 per common share, payable on May 28, 2021 to stockholders of record as of close of business on May 14, 2021.

Exhibit 99.1
Non-GAAP Financial Measures and Reconciliation
We rely on certain non-GAAP financial measures in making financial and operational decisions about our business. We believe that each of the non-GAAP financial measures presented is helpful in highlighting trends in our business, financial condition and results of operations which might not otherwise be apparent when relying solely on our financial results calculated in accordance with GAAP. We disclose net interest income and related ratios and analysis on a taxable-equivalent basis, which may also be considered non-GAAP financial measures. We believe this presentation to be the preferred industry measurement of net interest income as it provides a relevant comparison of net interest income arising from taxable and tax-exempt sources. In addition, certain performance measures, including the efficiency ratio and net interest margin utilize net interest income on a taxable-equivalent basis.
In particular, we evaluate our profitability and performance based on our adjusted net income, adjusted earnings per common share, pre-tax pre-provision income ("PTPP"), tangible net income and return on average tangible common equity. Our adjusted net income and adjusted earnings per common share exclude the after-tax effect of items with a significant impact to net income that we do not believe to be recurring in nature, (e.g., one-time acquisition expenses as well as the second quarter of fiscal year 2020 COVID-19 impact on credit and other related charges and the impairment of goodwill and certain intangible assets). Our PTPP income excludes total provision for credit losses, credit gains/losses on loans held for investment measured at fair value and goodwill impairment. Our tangible net income and return on average tangible common equity exclude the effects of amortization expense relating to intangible assets and our acquisitions of other institutions. We believe these measures help highlight trends associated with our financial condition and results of operations by providing net income and return information excluding significant nonrecurring items (for adjusted net income and adjusted earnings per common share), measure our ability to generate capital by providing net income excluding credit losses (for PTPP income) and measure net income based on our cash payments and receipts during the applicable period (for tangible net income and return on average tangible common equity).
We also evaluate our profitability and performance based on our adjusted net interest income, adjusted net interest margin, adjusted interest income on loans and adjusted yield on loans. We adjust each of these four measures to include the derivative interest expense we use to manage interest rate risk on certain of our loans, which we believe economically offsets the interest income earned on the loans. Similarly, we evaluate our operational efficiency based on our efficiency ratio, which excludes the effect of amortization of core deposit and other intangibles (a non-cash expense item) and includes the tax benefit associated with our tax-advantaged loans.
We evaluate our financial condition based on the ratio of our tangible common equity to our tangible assets and the ratio of our tangible common equity to common shares outstanding. Our calculation of this ratio excludes the effect of our goodwill and other intangible assets. We believe this measure is helpful in highlighting the common equity component of our capital and because of its focus by federal bank regulators when reviewing the health and strength of financial institutions in recent years and when considering regulatory approvals for certain actions, including capital actions. We also believe the ratio of our tangible common equity to common shares outstanding is helpful in understanding our stockholders’ relative ownership position as we undertake various actions to issue and retire common shares outstanding.
Reconciliations for each of these non-GAAP financial measures to the closest GAAP financial measures are included in the tables below. Each of the non-GAAP financial measures presented should be considered in context with our GAAP financial results included in this release.
