Pine Bluff, AR – Simmons First National Corporation (NASDAQ: SFNC) today announced record net income of $55.2 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2018, compared to $28.9 million for the same period in 2017, an increase of $26.3 million, or 91.3%. Diluted earnings per share were $0.59, an increase of $0.15, or 34.1%, from the same period in 2017. Included in third quarter 2018 results were $1.3 million in net after-tax merger-related and branch right-sizing costs. Excluding the impact of these items, core earnings were $56.5 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2018, compared to $27.7 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2017, an increase of $28.8 million, or 103.7%.

Year-to-date net income for the first nine months of 2018 was $160.1 million, or $1.72 diluted earnings per share, compared to $74.0 million, or $1.16 diluted earnings per share, for the same period in 2017.

Makris continued, “We continue to experience excellent organic growth in all of our markets. We are also very pleased that we have been able to balance year-to-date loan yields with deposit costs in this rising-rate environment.”

The Company’s net interest income for the third quarter of 2018 was $143.0 million, an increase of $64.1 million, or 81.4%, from the same period of 2017. Included in interest income was the yield accretion recognized on loans acquired of $10.0 million and $2.9 million for the third quarters of 2018 and 2017, respectively. Yield accretion was $5.2 million higher than projected during the quarter due to accelerated cash flows of acquired loans. Based on its cash flow projections, the Company expects accretion for the fourth quarter of approximately $4.2 million.

 

Net interest margin was 3.98% for the quarter ended September 30, 2018, a 1 basis point decrease from the second quarter. The Company’s core net interest margin, excluding the accretion, was 3.71% for the third quarter of 2018, a 1 basis point increase from June 30, 2018. Cost of interest bearing deposits was 1.05% for the third quarter of 2018, a 62 basis point increase from September 30, 2017 and a 21 basis point increase from June 30, 2018.

 

Since December 2017, the Federal Reserve Board increased the Fed Funds target rate by 75 basis points. The Company’s deposit beta was 56% and the core loan beta was 59%. During this same period, loan yield has increased 15 basis points and core loan yield has increased 44 basis points while cost of interest bearing deposits has risen 42 basis points. The cost of borrowed funds increased 70 basis points. The subordinated debt issuance at the end of the first quarter had a 5 basis point impact on the Company’s third quarter net interest margin. The timing of existing subordinated debt prepayment had an additional 1 basis point impact.

 

 

 

Non-Interest Income

 

Non-interest income for the third quarter 2018 was $33.7 million, a decrease of $4.3 million compared to the previous quarter. The decrease was primarily due to decreases in debit card fees and mortgage lending income. The interchange rate cap as established by the Durbin amendment became effective for the Company July 1, 2018, resulting in a $3.3 million reduction in debit card fees for the third quarter when compared to the second quarter.

 

Mortgage lending income was $1.4 million less than the second quarter mainly due to a continued slow-down in transactions driven by the rising rate environment. SBA income was flat from prior quarter due to management remaining selective in the Company’s loan sales as premium rates have lowered in recent months to the 6 to 7% range compared to 10% during the first quarter of the year.

 

Non-Interest Expense

 

Non-interest expense for the third quarter of 2018 was $100.3 million, an increase of $1.7 million compared to the previous quarter. Included in this quarter were $1.8 million of pre-tax merger-related expenses and branch rightsizing expenses. Excluding these expenses, core non-interest expense was $98.5 million, an increase of $1.5 million compared to the previous quarter.

 

Approximately $1.2 million in computer and software items were expensed during the quarter as part of the Company’s Next Generation Banking platform initiative. An incremental $1.1 million was spent during the quarter, when compared to the previous quarter, primarily for marketing campaigns directed towards increasing deposits. Included in the quarter was $1.1 million of one-time 401k profit-sharing expense. These increases were partially offset by decreases in other categories related to cost savings from merger integrations. The efficiency ratio for the third quarter 2018 was 53.47%.

 

The Company closed eight branch locations and two mobile branch locations during September, with expected annual cost savings of approximately $2.2 million related to these locations. Management continuously evaluates the Company’s branch network to determine the locations that are meeting the greatest needs of its customers.

 

Asset Quality

 

   3rd Qtr 2018  2nd Qtr 2018  4th Qtr 2017  3rd Qtr 2017
             
Allowance for loan losses to total loans  0.68%  0.73%  0.73%  0.82%
Allowance for loan losses to non-performing loans  136%  115%  90%  78%
Non-performing loans to total loans  0.50%  0.63%  0.81%  1.05%
Net charge-off ratio (annualized)  0.36%  0.17%  0.53%  0.32%
- Net charge-off ratio excluding loan sale  0.12%         

 

All loans acquired are recorded at their discounted net present value; therefore, they are excluded from the computations of the asset quality ratios for the legacy loan portfolio, except for their inclusion in total assets.

 

At September 30, 2018, the allowance for loan losses for legacy loans was $55.4 million. The allowance for loan losses for loans acquired was $1.3 million and the acquired loan discount credit mark was $54.0 million. The allowances for loan losses and credit marks provide a total of $110.7 million of coverage, which equates to a total coverage ratio of 0.9% of gross loans. The ratio of credit mark and related allowance to loans acquired was 1.5%.

 

Provision for loan losses for the third quarter of 2018 was $10.3 million, an increase of $1.3 million from the second quarter and $4.9 million from the same period last year. The increases are primarily due to strong legacy loan growth as well as increased migration from loans acquired to legacy loans resulting from new credit decisions being made on those loans during the third quarter. An incremental $3.0 million was included in the provision during the quarter related to the accelerated cash flows on migrating acquired loans.

 

During September, the Company sold approximately $32 million of substandard rated loans that consisted of both legacy and acquired loans. The loans had adequate reserves, thus no provision expense was required. However, the sale increased net charge-offs by approximately $4.6 million.

 

 

 

Foreclosed Assets and Other Real Estate Owned

 

At September 30, 2018, foreclosed assets and other real estate owned were $22.7 million, a decrease of $8.8 million, or 28.0%, compared to the same period in 2017 and a decrease of $7.8 million, or 25.7% from June 30, 2018. These decreases were partially offset by the addition of $2.8 million related to the closure of bank branches. The composition of these assets is divided into three types:

 

   3rd Qtr 2018  2nd Qtr 2018  4th Qtr 2017  3rd Qtr 2017
             
Closed bank branches, branch sites &            
associate relocation  $9.6 million  $7.2 million  $9.8 million  $12.8 million

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

 

This press release contains financial information determined by methods other than in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP). The Company’s management uses these non-GAAP financial measures in their analysis of the Company’s performance. These measures typically adjust GAAP performance measures to include the tax benefit associated with revenue items that are tax-exempt, as well as adjust income available to common shareholders for certain significant non-core activities or nonrecurring transactions. Since the presentation of these GAAP performance measures and their impact differ between companies, management believes presentations of these non-GAAP financial measures provide useful supplemental information that is essential to a proper understanding of the operating results of the Company’s core businesses. These non-GAAP disclosures should not be viewed as a substitute for operating results determined in accordance with GAAP, nor are they necessarily comparable to non-GAAP performance measures that may be presented by other companies. Where non-GAAP financial measures are used, the comparable GAAP financial measure, as well as the reconciliation to the comparable GAAP financial measure, can be found in the tables of this release.
