Howard Bancorp, Inc. Reports Third Quarter 2018 Results

Company Reports Improved Earnings, Loan Growth and Funding Remix

BALTIMORE--(BUSINESS WIRE)--October 24, 2018--Howard Bancorp, Inc. (Nasdaq: HBMD), the parent company of Howard Bank, reported its financial results for the quarter ending September 30, 2018. A summary of results for and other developments during the quarter ended September 30, 2018 is as follows:

  • Net income equaled $3.98 million and earnings per basic share (EPS) was $0.21 as the company experienced lower operating and merger related expenses.
  • Third quarter sequential loan growth equaled 1% reflecting our focus on growth in commercial and industrial loans (increasing 3.8%) while managing commercial real estate levels. Non-performing asset levels improved.
  • Deposits grew 4% sequentially during the quarter as we focused our funding on local customers (CDs at comparable rates) and repaid FHLB advances.
  • Net interest margin (NIM) improved to 3.91% on a stated basis and was 3.66% excluding fair value adjustments on loans.
  • Cost savings from the merger are on track to exceed initial estimates.

During the first nine months of 2018, Howard Bancorp continued with its strategic growth plan by organically growing assets loans and deposits, while also successfully achieving growth via acquisition. Chairman and CEO MaryAnn Scully stated, “The transformational acquisition of First Mariner is proceeding according to plan. This quarter begins to show the continuing value added diversification of loans to commercial and industrial (C&I), away from the acquired residential loans in both the Howard and the First Mariner portfolios and helping to offset the cyclical trends in the non-owner occupied interim financing sector. The quarter shows the continuation of a strong transactional deposit base and the ability of the company to maintain clients in the highest quality accounts while shifting non transaction account funding away from more volatile sources into core deposits.”

Chairman Scully continued, “The quarter results show both less volatile sources of non-interest income and significant reduction in expenses following the second quarter conversion, elimination of redundancies and branch closures. Repositioning the loan portfolio as well as the core deposit base to be less reliant on borrowings will continue to be a priority and the bank continues to move forward on further cost reductions centered around occupancy costs and contract renegotiations. Therefore, the scale achieved by our recent activities positions us well for that targeted sustainably higher quality of earnings. As the industry continues to consolidate in Maryland with more out of state competitors, our position as the largest Greater Baltimore headquartered depository and the one most clearly focused on serving other locally headquartered businesses is unique and provides enormous value to all of our stakeholders.”


For the Three Months Ended September 30, 2018

Financial Condition

Total assets of $2.15 billion decreased by $28.8 million or 1% during the third quarter of 2018, with total loans reflecting net growth of nearly $14.5 million or 1%. As noted above, our core category of C&I loans increased by $12.8 million during the quarter, and we supplemented this organic growth with a $20 million purchase of a pool of variable rate student loans which lead to an increase in our consumer loans of $15.2 million for the third quarter. Unfortunately, partially offsetting this core organic and acquired loan growth was a decline in our residential loans of $12.4 million during the third quarter and a small decline in the commercial real estate (CRE) loan portfolio which dropped by $4.5 million. The Bank’s strategy is to reduce the overall composition of residential loans through growth in other categories, but we are actively planning to maintain the current level of the residential portfolio rather than experience any declines. The resulting modest quarterly portfolio loan growth was influenced by a large increase in volume of non-owner occupied CRE loans that were paid off during the quarter due to the cyclical influences. The level of loans originated during the quarter was comparable to historic origination levels, but this quarter, these were offset by unscheduled payoffs not related to renewal but rather related to sales of properties to new investors with non-bank financing sources. Loans held for sale, which are loans that are maintained on our balance sheet for a short period between when the mortgage loans are originated with the customer, and when they are sold to secondary market investors, also declined from $56.0 million at June 30, 2018 to $28.3 million at September 30, 2018, a reduction of $27.7 million or 50%.

On the funding side, total deposits of $1.624 billion increased by $59.0 million or 4% during the third quarter of 2018. The $59.0 million increase in total deposits during the third quarter was driven by a promotional campaign to grow CD balances. This CD campaign was executed during the third quarter, and resulted in growth in CD balances of $89.4 million comparing September 30, 2018 to June 30, 2018. Our savings and money market balances declined by $22.2 million or 4% during the quarter, with much of this decline resulting from former money market customers transferring their funds into the promotional CD’s. The weighted average cost of this CD campaign was approximately the same as the incremental cost of borrowings. With the net increase in deposits of $59.0 million and the decline in total asset levels for the quarter, we reduced the level of borrowed funds by $88.7 million or 28% during the third quarter of 2018.

Results of Operations

With the acquisition closing on March 1, 2018, and systems conversion during the second quarter, the third quarter operating results were not significantly impacted by the acquisition and post-merger activities. In general, most of the restructuring of the operations, and the majority of costs of the merger along with operational cost reductions had been executed upon by the end of the second quarter of 2018. Thus, we believe that except for approximately $500 thousand in operating costs that occurred in the early part of the third quarter, the overall results for the third quarter reflect the core operating results achieved to date post-acquisition. For the third quarter of 2018, we had net income of $3.98 million compared to net income of $1.71 million for the third quarter of 2017 and a net loss of $2.28 million for the second quarter of 2018.


The third quarter of 2018 reflected $18.6 million in net interest income compared to the $17.9 million for the second quarter of 2018, an increase of $767 thousand or 4%. Our 3.91% NIM for the third quarter of 2018 while for the second quarter of 2018 our NIM was 3.84%. Because of the additional interest income from purchase accounting adjustments, the NIM can fluctuate from period to period. The following table represents the NIM as reported each quarter, and the stable NIM excluding the impact of the additional interest income due to the purchase accounting measures:

The core NIM excludes the impact of purchase accounting adjustment toward net interest income and is a non-GAAP financial measure. For a reconciliation of this non-GAAP financial measure to its comparable GAAP measure, see the final page of this press release

 

Non-interest income of $3.9 million for the quarter was $1.8 million or 31% lower than the $5.6 million recorded in the second quarter of 2018. Similar to the nine month results described above, the traditional banking sources of noninterest revenues increased by $142 thousand or 7%, while mortgage banking revenues declined by $1.9 million or 53% for the third quarter compared to the second quarter of 2018.

Non-interest expenses of $16.4 million decreased by $8.7 million or 35% compared to the $25.1 million recorded in the second quarter of 2018. Both the second and third quarters of 2018 were impacted by expenses relating to the merger, so excluding merger costs, total non-interest expenses of $16.6 million for the third quarter of 2018 were $2.8 million or 15% less than the core expenses of $19.4 million in the second quarter of 2018. As is reflected in the financial tables at the end of this release, there were meaningful reductions in nearly every category, however, quarterly reductions in the compensation and occupancy of $1.2 million and $627 thousand, respectively, accounted for nearly two-thirds of the cost reductions. Our expense base and our efficiencies continue to be challenged by the relative inefficiencies of our mortgage operations with $2.6 million of our total of $16.4 million of our costs associated with our mortgage division. Our goal to achieve a focused local mortgage operation generating modestly accretive earnings is seeing some signs of success as costs in the mortgage division have declined from $4.3 million for the second quarter of 2018 to the $2.6 million in the third quarter.

Largely because of the earnings for the third quarter, our total equity of $293.6 million increased by $4.1 million compared to $289.5 million at June 30, 2018. We remain well capitalized under the regulatory guidelines, and our leverage ratio increased from 8.76% at the end of the second quarter to 8.86% for September 30, 2018, and total risk based capital increased from 10.83% to 11.01% for the same periods.


For the Nine Months Ended September 30, 2018

Financial Condition

During the first nine months of 2018, Howard Bancorp continued with its strategic growth plan by organically growing assets, loans and deposits, while also successfully achieving growth via acquisition. Primarily because of the acquisition of First Mariner in March of 2018, total assets increased by $1.00 billion or 87%, from $1.15 billion at December 31, 2017 to $2.15 billion at September 30, 2018. Similarly, portfolio loans at September 30, 2018 were $1.6 billion, which was $688 million or 73% higher than at the end of 2017. Total deposits of $1.6 billion, represented an increase of $761 million or 88% over December 31, 2017, while transaction deposits increased by $329 million or 113% over the same period. In addition to the increase in loan levels, our investment securities, cash levels and Bank Owned Life Insurance (BOLI) investments increased by $55 million, $73 million and $45 million, respectively. The only category of assets to show any meaningful decline for the first nine months of 2018 were our loans held-for-sale, which declined by $13.9 million or 33% as we have intentionally sought to reduce the levels of originations throughout 2018.

Primarily because of the equity consideration paid in the acquisition, our total equity increased by $161 million or 122% when comparing September 30, 2018 to December 31, 2017, and we remain well capitalized given each of the regulatory guidelines.

From an asset quality position, the level of nonperforming loans to total loans increased from 1.41% at the end of 2017, to 1.69% at September 30, 2018 given the additional nonperforming loans from the acquisition, while the level of nonperforming assets to total assets experienced a similar increase from 1.28% at December 31, 2017 to the current level of 1.46% at the end of the September 2018. To assist in the comparison, on a stand-alone basis, First Mariner nonperforming loans to total loans were 2.70% at December 31, 2017, and nonperforming assets to total assets were 2.25%. We have been actively working to reduce the level of nonperforming assets, and have experienced a decline in the combined portfolio from March 31, 2018 which had nonperforming loans to total loans of 1.89% and nonperforming assets to total assets of 1.67%.

Results of Operations

Because the acquisition closed on March 1, 2018, the year-to-date net interest income results only include the contribution of First Mariner since the date of the acquisition, and not for the entire nine month period. Comparing the September 30, 2018 year-to-date income (which included seven months of combined operations) with the first nine months of 2017, net interest income increased by $20.7 million or 74% for 2018, with an increase in interest income of $26.3 million or 83% offset by an increase in interest expense of $5.6 million or 152%. The majority of the increase in net interest income was driven by the large growth in earning assets, deposits, and borrowings from the acquisition. From a net interest margin perspective, the NIM remained relatively unchanged with the NIM for the first nine months of 2017 of 3.74% compared to a NIM of 3.79% for the first nine months of 2018.


The provision for credit losses for the first nine months of 2018 of $3.2 million compares to a provision expense of $1.0 million for the first nine months of 2017. The increase in the provision is due to both an increase in the general allowance on a portfolio that is nearly double in size, mostly from acquired performing loans, along with some specific reserves and higher charge-off levels on a small subset Howard Bank legacy loans.

Non-interest income of $14.2 million for the first nine months of 2018 was $678 thousand or 5% lower than the $14.9 million recorded in the first nine months of 2017 despite a proactive rightsizing of the sources of the more volatile mortgage revenue. The 2018 mix of non-interest income while down slightly is much more stable. Traditional banking related sources, such as service charges on deposits, transaction fees and BOLI income were $5.3 million for the first nine months of 2018 compared to $2.5 million for the first nine months of 2017, representing an increase of $2.8 million or 108%. The additional deposit accounts as well as the increased BOLI investment from the acquisition are responsible for the majority of the increase. Partially offsetting the banking related increase was a decline in mortgage banking revenues for the first nine months of 2018. Total mortgage banking revenues fell from $12.3 million for the first nine months of 2017 to $8.9 million for the first nine months of 2018. These declines represent the intended de-emphasis of mortgage banking announced at the time of the acquisition as well as the discontinuation of the national leads-based Consumer Direct mortgage unit in April of 2018, and these reductions negatively impacted mortgage revenues. In addition to the obvious impact of lower origination levels on revenues, it should be noted that we account for both our loans held for sale as well as our interest rate locks using the fair value approach, and under this methodology, revenues are negatively impacted when the levels of either loans held for sale or the levels of interest rate locks decline. Until the first quarter of 2018, these levels included the contributions of both our retail purchase money group and our Consumer Direct unit, as well as the levels of loans held for sale and interest rate locks issued by the prior First Mariner mortgage team. Because of the overall reduction in the levels of originations and the closing of our Consumer Direct unit, the September 30, 2018 levels of loans held for sale and interest rate locks were declining steadily throughout the first nine months of 2018. These volume declines resulted in a reduction in revenues of $1.95 million solely from fair value measurement for the first nine months of 2018 while for the same nine month period of 2017, fair value measures added $342 thousand to mortgage revenues. This $2.2 million revenue difference from fair value measurement is the natural result of the reductions in overall origination activities, and highlights that this type of volatility in revenues is one of the reasons behind the decision to substantially reduce and focus the mortgage operations.

Non-interest expenses of $64.7 million for the first nine months of 2018 were higher than the $33.4 million in expenses for the first nine months of 2017 by $31.3 million or 94%, and included $15.5 million of expenses that were related to the merger with First Mariner. Excluding the merger related expenses, total expenses increased by $16.3 million or 49% over the expenses incurred in 2017. As we noted at the time the acquisition was announced, we anticipated cost savings targets of approximately 37% of the First Mariner expense base. We have identified and executed upon the cost savings that should allow us to exceed our previously estimated 37% of cost savings from the merger, however, given the timing of the closing of the merger in March, and the systems conversion in May, the first half of 2018 did not materially benefit from the ability to execute upon those savings initiatives, while the third quarter of 2018 expenses recognized the impact of those cost savings strategies. As noted earlier, we estimate that third quarter operating expense of $16.6 million included approximately $500 thousand of residual operating expenses relating to the acquisition. This $16.6 million in operating expenses is 74% of the combined non-interest expenses of Howard and First Mariner for the third quarter 2017, and represents a cost savings rate of 54% of the First Mariner total expenses for the third quarter of 2017.

Reconciliation of Non-GAAP measures presented in this release

Statements included in this press release include non-GAAP financial measures and should be read along with the accompanying tables, which provide a reconciliation of non-GAAP financial measures to GAAP financial measures. The Company's management uses non-GAAP financial measures, Management believes that non-GAAP financial measures provide additional useful information that allows readers to evaluate the ongoing performance of the Company and provide meaningful comparison to its peers. Non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered as an alternative to any measure of performance or financial condition as promulgated under GAAP, and investors should consider the Company's performance and financial condition as reported under GAAP and all other relevant information when assessing the performance or financial condition of the Company.

The Company recognizes interest income and interest expense from the amortization and/or accretion of purchase accounting fair value measures incurred in connection with the acquisition of First Mariner that are based upon customer activities and can create volatility in the reported NIM when measuring comparable periods. Following is a reconciliation of the core NIM results excluding the impact of net interest income recognized from purchase accounting adjustments and the GAAP basis information presented in this release:
