PNFP REPORTS DILUTED EPS OF $1.31, ROAA OF 1.55% AND ROTCE OF 17.74% FOR 2Q 2019
Excluding non-GAAP adjustments, 2Q19 diluted EPS was $1.42, ROAA was 1.69% and ROTCE was 19.28%
NASHVILLE, TN, July 16, 2019 - Pinnacle Financial Partners, Inc. (Nasdaq/NGS: PNFP) reported net income per diluted common share of $1.31 for the quarter ended June 30, 2019, compared to net income per diluted common share of $1.12 for the quarter ended June 30, 2018, an increase of 17.0 percent. Net income per diluted common share was $2.53 for the six months ended June 30, 2019, compared to net income per diluted common share of $2.20 for the six months ended June 30, 2018, an increase of 15.0 percent.
The following items impacted Pinnacle Financial’s second quarter of 2019 results:
•$4.5 million in net losses on the sale of $382.0 million of investment securities as the firm seeks to better position its balance sheet for potential reductions in short-term rates,
•$1.5 million loss from the sale of its remaining non-prime automobile portfolio, to finalize our exit from that business, which has been underway for some time,
•$2.4 million write-down of facilities and land acquired in the BNC acquisition that previously had been held for potential expansion, and
•$3.2 million non-cash impairment charge related to the proposed consolidation of five offices across the firm's footprint.
Excluding these items, as well as merger-related charges in 2018 and ORE expense in each period, net income per diluted common share was $1.42 for the three months ended June 30, 2019, compared to net income per diluted common share of $1.16 for the three months ended June 30, 2018, a growth rate of 22.4 percent. Excluding the same adjustments noted above for the six months ended June 30, 2019 and 2018, net income per diluted common share was $2.66 for the six months ended June 30, 2019, compared to net income per diluted common share of $2.28 for the six months ended June 30, 2018, a growth rate of 16.7 percent.
"Obviously, we are excited about our very strong earnings growth in the second quarter and first six months of 2019," said M. Terry Turner, Pinnacle's president and chief executive officer. "Highlights for the quarter included double-digit loan growth, strong hiring throughout our footprint and better than anticipated fee income associated with our investment in BHG. During the quarter, we also implemented plans for rationalization of certain assets. Our decision to sell the remainder of our non-prime automobile loans and to consolidate a number of branch offices, along with the other items noted above, negatively impacted the second quarter by approximately $12.0 million in additional expenses. However, by incurring these expenses, we believe we are much better positioned to absorb potential decreases in short-term interest rates. These actions also eliminate any future losses that could have been incurred from the non-prime automobile portfolio."
