Net interest margin of 2.13% compared to 2.03% for Q3 2020
Loan production of $385.2 million during the quarter
Over 99% of COVID-19 loan modifications have returned to payment status
Retail deposit growth of $32.6 million during the quarter
Prepaid $150.0 million of FHLB borrowings with a weighted average interest rate of 2.95%

Quarterly cash dividend of $0.0575 per common share declared
SANTA ROSA, Calif. (January 26, 2021) Luther Burbank Corporation (NASDAQ: LBC) (the “Company”), the holding company for Luther Burbank Savings (the “Bank”), today reported net income of $8.7 million and $39.9 million, or $0.17 and $0.75, diluted earnings per common share (“EPS”), for the quarter and year ended December 31, 2020, respectively.
Simone Lagomarsino, President and Chief Executive Officer, stated, “I'm proud to report our financial results for the quarter and year ended December 31, 2020. During the quarter, net income dipped to $8.7 million, or $0.17 per diluted share compared to $14.3 million, or $0.27 per diluted share during the linked quarter. This decline was entirely attributable to a $10.4 million non-recurring cost incurred in connection with the prepayment of $150.0 million of long-term fixed rate FHLB borrowings in late December. Excluding the impact of this nonrecurring cost, net income for the quarter and year ended December 31, 2020 would have been $16.1 million, or $0.31 EPS, and $47.3 million, or $0.89 EPS, respectively. The weighted average interest rate and remaining term to maturity on these borrowings was 2.95% and 2.5 years, respectively. The prepayments were a strategic decision to utilize low yielding excess liquidity to remove high cost borrowings to benefit our net interest margin in future quarters. During the current quarter, net interest margin improved to 2.13% compared to 2.03% during the linked quarter. Our net interest margin during the quarter benefited from a 16 basis point decline in the cost of our interest bearing deposits as deposits continue to reprice down to lower interest rates. I'm also encouraged by the strength of loan demand that we experienced during the current quarter. Loan origination volume this quarter of $385.2 million was $149.9 million

higher than the previous quarter. Despite this improved demand, loans declined by $98.7 million during the quarter due to elevated loan prepayment speeds as customers continue to refinance loans to take advantage of lower long-term interest rates."
Ms. Lagomarsino continued, "As we close the year, I would like to express my gratitude to our entire banking team, which has continued to work diligently and tirelessly to support our customers, communities and co-workers impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. Despite the challenges of this past year, their dedication, commitment and collective efforts have been truly inspiring. In early 2020, we implemented a loan payment deferral program to provide borrowers with the financial flexibility to successfully navigate the economic challenges and uncertainties caused by the pandemic. Through this program, we have modified 254 loans for our customers requiring financial assistance with an aggregate outstanding loan balance of $376.0 million, and I'm encouraged that over 99% have returned to their respective contractual loan payments.”
Board Declares Quarterly Cash Dividend of $0.0575 Per Share
On January 26, 2021, the Board of Directors of the Company declared a quarterly cash dividend of $0.0575 per common share. The dividend is payable on February 16, 2021 to shareholders of record as of February 5, 2021.
Net Income
The Company reported net income of $8.7 million and $39.9 million, or $0.17 and $0.75 EPS, for the quarter and year ended December 31, 2020, respectively, compared to net income of $14.3 million, or $0.27 EPS, for the linked quarter and $48.9 million, or $0.87 EPS, for the year ended December 31, 2019. Pre-tax, pre-provision net earnings totaled $12.4 million and $67.2 million for the quarter and year ended December 31, 2020, respectively, compared to $20.3 million for the linked quarter and $70.7 million for the year ended December 31, 2019.
Pre-tax, pre-provision net earnings, a non-GAAP financial measure, is presented because management believes this financial metric provides stockholders with useful information for evaluating the profitability of the Company. A schedule reconciling our GAAP net income to pre-tax, pre-provision net earnings is provided in the tables below.
Net Interest Income
Q4 2020 vs Q3 2020
Net interest income in the fourth quarter of 2020 was $37.2 million, an increase of $1.1 million from the third quarter of 2020, primarily due to lower interest expense on our deposit portfolio, which has continued to benefit from the decline in market interest rates. During the quarter, the cost of interest bearing deposits declined by 16 basis points as compared to the linked quarter. The improvement in interest expense was partially offset by a decline in interest income earned on our loan portfolio caused by a decrease in the average yield of 2 basis points and a $115.0 million decline in the average balance of loans. The reduction in our loan yield was primarily caused by the prepayment of higher yielding loans, which are being replaced by loans at lower current interest rates, as well as an increase in the acceleration of deferred loan origination costs on prepaid loans, partially offset by an increase in loan prepayment fees collected during the quarter. The decline in the average balance of loans was primarily due to loan prepayments exceeding loan originations during the current quarter.
Net interest margin for the fourth quarter of 2020 was 2.13%, compared to 2.03% for the previous quarter. Consistent with the discussion above, our net interest margin primarily benefited from the decline in the cost of interest bearing deposits, partially offset by a reduction in loan yields. During the fourth quarter, the yield on our interest earning assets decreased by 3 basis points, while the cost of our interest bearing liabilities decreased by 13 basis points. Our net interest spread in the fourth quarter improved to 2.02%, increasing by 10 basis points as compared to the linked quarter.
YTD 2020 vs YTD 2019
Net interest income totaled $138.6 million for the year ended December 31, 2020, an increase of $10.2 million, compared to the prior year. The increase in net interest income was primarily impacted by a 63 basis point decline in the cost of interest bearing deposits. Net interest income was further enhanced by a decrease in the average balance and cost of Federal Home Loan Bank of San Francisco ("FHLB") advances of $91.1 million and 11 basis points, respectively. These items were partially offset by a $12.9 million increase in the cost of our interest rate swaps as compared to the prior year, as well as the prepayment of higher yielding loans, which are being replaced by loans at lower current interest rates. Net interest income was also impacted by an 82 basis point decline in the yield on our investment securities. The decline in our investment yield was generally caused by variable rate securities repricing to lower current interest rates, as well as the accelerated prepayment of securities backed by mortgages.
2


Net interest margin for the year ended December 31, 2020 was 1.97%, compared to 1.84% for the prior year. The increase in our margin was primarily related to the decline in the cost of our interest bearing deposits, partially offset by the decline in the yields of our loan and investment portfolios, as discussed above. Over the year, the yield on our interest earning assets decreased by 39 basis points, while the cost of our interest bearing liabilities decreased by 56 basis points. Our net interest spread for the year ended December 31, 2020 was 1.83%, increasing by 17 basis points as compared to last year.
Noninterest Income
Q4 2020 vs Q3 2020
Noninterest income for the fourth quarter of 2020 was $464 thousand, a decrease of $123 thousand compared to the third quarter of 2020. The decrease was primarily attributable to a $92 thousand reduction in servicing fee income related to a decline in the volume of serviced loans, as well as a decrease in the fair value of our mortgage servicing rights during the current quarter. Additionally, the fair value of equity securities declined $33 thousand compared to the prior quarter.
YTD 2020 vs YTD 2019
Noninterest income for the year ended December 31, 2020 totaled $2.5 million, a decrease of $2.2 million compared to last year. The decrease was primarily due to a $607 thousand gain on sale of loans and a non-recurring equipment recovery of $384 thousand, both recognized during the prior year. Additionally, FHLB stock dividends decreased $513 thousand and servicing fee income decreased $461 thousand from the prior year due to a decline in the volume of serviced loans, as well as a decrease in the fair value of our mortgage servicing rights during the current year.
Noninterest income primarily consists of FHLB stock dividends, fair value adjustments on equity securities, fee income and the financial impact related to loans sold.
Noninterest Expense
Q4 2020 vs Q3 2020
Noninterest expense for the fourth quarter of 2020 was $25.4 million, an increase of $9.0 million compared to the third quarter of 2020. The significant fluctuation was primarily due to a $10.4 million prepayment fee incurred in connection with the prepayment of $150.0 million of FHLB borrowings during the quarter ended December 31, 2020, partially offset by a decrease in compensation costs of $1.2 million chiefly caused by an increase in capitalized loan origination costs related to higher loan volume in the current quarter compared to the prior quarter. The efficiency ratio was 67.2% for the quarter ended December 31, 2020 compared to 44.6% for the linked quarter. Excluding the impact of the nonrecurring cost of the prepayment fee on FHLB borrowings, the efficiency ratio would have been 39.5% for the quarter ended December 31, 2020.
YTD 2020 vs YTD 2019
Noninterest expense for the year ended December 31, 2020 totaled $73.9 million, an increase of $11.6 million compared to last year. As discussed above, the increase was primarily attributable to the $10.4 million prepayment fee on the paydown of FHLB borrowings. Additionally, there was a $5.9 million increase in compensation costs due to a $2.3 million increase in salary expense attributed to an increase in the average headcount throughout the year, as well as merit increases, a $2.1 million increase in the required accrual for post-employment related retirement benefits resulting from a decline in interest rates, and a $1.2 million decrease in capitalized loan origination costs related to lower loan volumes compared to the prior year. Noninterest expense was further impacted by a $1.4 million increase in federal deposit insurance assessments due to the utilization of our Small Bank Assessment Credit during the prior year. These increased costs were partially offset by a $3.4 million decrease in marketing costs associated with deposit gathering efforts, a $1.1 million decline in occupancy costs, and a $1.1 million decline in the write-off of leasehold improvements compared to the prior year. Both the decline in occupancy costs and the write-off of leasehold improvements were attributable to the relocation of two facilities in late 2019. The efficiency ratio was 52.4% for the year ended December 31, 2020 compared to 46.9% for the prior year. Excluding the impact of the nonrecurring cost of the prepayment fee on FHLB borrowings, the efficiency ratio would have been 45.0% for the year ended December 31, 2020.
Noninterest expense primarily consists of compensation costs, as well as expenses incurred related to occupancy, depreciation and amortization, data processing, marketing and professional services.

Balance Sheet Summary
Total assets at December 31, 2020 were $6.9 billion, a decrease of $139.7 million, or 2.0%, from December 31, 2019. The decrease was primarily due to a $181.2 million decrease in loans, as well as a $33.8 million decrease in investment securities, partially offset by a $87.5 million increase in cash, cash equivalents and restricted cash as compared to December 31, 2019. Total liabilities were $6.3 billion at December 31, 2020, a decrease of $139.0 million, or 2.2%, from December 31, 2019. The decrease in total liabilities was primarily attributable to a decrease in FHLB advances of $172.0 million, partially offset by growth in our deposits of $29.6 million compared to December 31, 2019.
Loans
Total loans at December 31, 2020 were $6.0 billion, a decrease of $181.2 million from December 31, 2019.

(1) The table above excludes loan data related to construction, land and non-mortgage loans, which are insignificant components of our loan portfolio.

During the year ended December 31, 2020, IPL portfolio yields decreased 36 basis points compared to last year. This decline was primarily due to a $12.9 million increase in the cost of our interest rate swaps, which reduced the IPL portfolio yield by 30 basis points and, to a lesser extent, the prepayment of higher yielding loans being replaced by loans at lower current interest rates. The decline in the IPL portfolio average coupon on originations in the quarter ended December 31, 2020 compared to the linked quarter and prior year was due to a decline in market interest rates. Elevated IPL portfolio prepayment speeds were primarily related to customers refinancing their hybrid-ARM loans to take advantage of lower long-term interest rates.
The 13 basis point decrease in yield on the SFR portfolio during the quarter ended December 31, 2020 compared to the linked quarter, as well as the 18 basis point decline in the yield on the SFR portfolio during the year ended December 31, 2020 compared to last year, were both the result of the prepayment of higher yielding loans being replaced with loans at lower current interest rates and, to a lesser extent, the increase in the accelerated amortization of deferred loan origination costs. The decline in the average coupon on originations in the SFR loan portfolio in the quarter ended December 31, 2020 compared to the linked quarter and prior year was primarily due to a decline in market interest rates. Elevated SFR loan portfolio prepayment speeds were primarily related to customers refinancing their hybrid-ARM loans to take advantage of lower long-term interest rates.
Asset Quality
Nonperforming assets totaled $6.3 million, or 0.09% of total assets, at December 31, 2020, compared to $6.3 million, or 0.09% of total assets, at December 31, 2019. During the year ended December 31, 2020, total criticized loans
4


increased by $11.6 million, or 25.5%, compared to the prior year. The increase in criticized loans was primarily attributable to the Bank's proactive approach to addressing loans impacted by the pandemic. These downgrades largely consisted of loans in the IPL portfolio and were generally performing following their respective modification periods. As discussed below, over 99% of our COVID-19 loan modifications have returned to repayment status. There was no real estate owned at December 31, 2020 or December 31, 2019 and we have not foreclosed on any collateral since 2015. For the quarter ended December 31, 2020, we recorded no loan loss provisions. During the current quarter, the impact to our provision for loan losses caused by higher criticized loans was entirely offset by a partial reduction in qualitative reserves initially established for economic uncertainties related to COVID-19, as well as a decline in our loan balances as compared to the previous quarter.
During the year ended December 31, 2020 and 2019, the Company recorded loan loss provisions of $10.6 million and $1.3 million, respectively. The loan loss provisions recognized during the year ended December 31, 2020 were primarily related to the uncertain economic impact associated with the pandemic. To support our customers during the pandemic, the Company implemented a loan modification program in late March 2020 that permits borrowers who are unable to service their loans due to a COVID-19 related hardship to defer loan payments for a specified period of time. As of December 31, 2020, we have modified 254 currently outstanding loans in connection with this program, representing aggregate outstanding loan balances of $230.4 million and $145.6 million, or 5.4% and 8.6%, of our IPL and SFR loan portfolios, respectively. Since implementing the modification program, over 99% of these loans, with an aggregate outstanding loan balance of $372.4 million, have returned to routine monthly payments following their respective forbearance period. In addition, approximately 0.2% of these loans, with an aggregate outstanding loan balance of $770 thousand, have indicated they intend to return to monthly payments following their respective forbearance period. Twenty-five SFR loans and five IPL loans totaling $33.4 million and $9.7 million, respectively, have paid off subsequent to their modification. For the year ended December 31, 2020, we have added $12.4 million to our allowance for loan losses in response to the COVID-19 environment. Our allowance for loan losses to total loans was 0.76% at December 31, 2020 compared to 0.58% at December 31, 2019.
Prepaid Expenses and Other Assets
Prepaid expenses and other assets totaled $67.1 million at December 31, 2020 compared to $62.7 million at December 31, 2019, an increase of $4.4 million, or 7.0%. Prepaid expenses and other assets primarily consist of bank-owned life insurance, prepaid expenses, accrued interest receivable, premises and equipment and tax related items.
Deposits
Deposits totaled $5.3 billion at December 31, 2020, an increase of $29.6 million, or 0.6%, from December 31, 2019. Retail deposits increased $395.6 million, while wholesale deposits decreased $366.0 million. The increase in retail deposits has been primarily generated by our network of branches, while the decline in wholesale deposits was a purposeful decision by the Company to reduce excess, low yielding cash from the balance sheet. Our cost of interest bearing deposits was 1.00% and 1.38% during the quarter and year ended December 31, 2020, respectively, compared to 1.16% and 2.01% during the linked quarter and prior year, respectively. The decrease in our cost of interest bearing deposits compared to the linked quarter and last year is predominantly due to our deposit portfolio repricing to lower current market interest rates. The decline in these rates is attributable to a reduction in short-term interest rates due to the Federal Open Market Committee's interest rate cuts in early 2020.
FHLB Advances
FHLB advances totaled $806.7 million at December 31, 2020, a decrease of $172.0 million, or 17.6%, from December 31, 2019. As discussed above, the Company prepaid $150.0 million of FHLB borrowings during the quarter ended December 31, 2020. At the time of payoff, these borrowings had a weighted average interest rate and a weighted average maturity of 2.95% and 2.5 years, respectively. At December 31, 2020, the weighted average interest rate and weighted average maturity of FHLB advances outstanding was 2.07% and 1.7 years, respectively, compared to 2.30% and 2.3 years, respectively at December 31, 2019.
Other Liabilities
Other liabilities totaled $64.9 million at December 31, 2020, compared to $61.7 million at December 31, 2019, an increase of $3.3 million, or 5.3%. Other liabilities primarily consist of accrued employee benefits, loan escrow balances, checks outstanding, accrued interest payable and swap liabilities.
5


Capital
Stockholders’ equity totaled $613.7 million, a decrease of $773 thousand, or 0.1%, compared to December 31, 2019. The net decline in capital was attributed to the Company’s stock repurchase activity. During the quarter and year ended December 31, 2020, the Company repurchased 149,360 and 4,001,169 shares, respectively, at an average share price of $9.52 and $9.03, respectively, or a 18.6% and 22.7% discount, respectively, to our current tangible book value. The Company completed a $45.0 million stock repurchase program during the second quarter of 2020 and approved a new stock repurchase program during the fourth quarter of 2020 allowing for share repurchases totaling up to $20.0 million. As of December 31, 2020, there were $18.6 million of authorized funds remaining under the current active share repurchase program. Stockholders' equity represented 8.9% and 8.7% of total assets at December 31, 2020 and December 31, 2019, respectively. Both the Bank’s and the Company’s capital levels continue to be above the minimum levels required for bank regulatory capital purposes. At December 31, 2020, our Tier 1 Leverage, Common Equity Tier 1 Risk-Based, Tier 1 Risk-Based and Total Risk-Based Capital ratios were 10.4%, 19.0%, 19.0% and 20.3%, respectively, for the Bank, and 9.5%, 15.8%, 17.4% and 18.6%, respectively, for the Company. At December 31, 2020, the Company’s tangible stockholders' equity ratio was 8.8%. A schedule reconciling our GAAP financial amounts to the calculation of tangible stockholders' equity is provided in the tables below.
