289 Days ago

Quarterly Cash Dividend of $0.0575 Per Common Share Declared

SANTA ROSA, Calif. , Jan. 28, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Luther Burbank Corporation (NASDAQ: LBC) (the “Company”), the holding company for Luther Burbank Savings (the “Bank”), today reported net income of $10.6 million and $45.1 million, or $0.19 and $0.79 diluted earnings per common share (“EPS”), for the quarter and year ended December 31, 2018, respectively, compared to net income of $20.4 million and $69.4 million, or $0.45 and $1.62 EPS, for the same periods last year.  Pre-tax, pre-provision earnings and pro forma EPS for the quarter and year ended December 31, 2018 were $15.0 million and $66.5 million, respectively, and $0.19 and $0.79, respectively, compared to $15.8 million and $61.9 million, respectively, and $0.18 and $0.88, respectively, for the same periods last year.

Pre-tax, pre-provision earnings and pro forma EPS, both non-GAAP financial measures, are presented because management believes these financial metrics provide stockholders with useful information for evaluating the profitability of the Company.  In addition, management believes it enhances the comparability of the Company’s financial results by eliminating the tax differences associated with the Company’s change in tax status from a S-corporation to a C-corporation.  The Company revoked its S-corporation status in December 2017.  A schedule reconciling our GAAP net income to pre-tax, pre-provision earnings and pro forma EPS are provided in the tables below.

Simone Lagomarsino, President and Chief Executive Officer, stated, “I'm pleased to have joined the Company and to be announcing our financial results for the quarter and year ended December 31, 2018.  We finished the year with a balance sheet in excess of $6.9 billion, supported by robust growth in our loan and deposit portfolios of $1.1 billion and $1.0 billion, respectively, contributing to net interest income increasing to $31.8 million and $125.1 million for the quarter and year ended December 31, 2018.  Despite a challenging interest rate environment, which has compressed our net interest margin, I'm encouraged by the resilience of our team to continue generating quality loans and retail deposit relationships, which are exemplified by the sustained improvement in the level of our nonperforming assets and the retention rates of our deposit customers.  In addition, we remain one of the most efficient companies within our peer group, with an efficiency ratio of 49% for the year.  I'm optimistic as we head into 2019 and believe the momentum established in 2018 will continue into the new year.”

Ms. Lagomarsino continued, “Since announcing our $15.0 million stock repurchase program in August 2018, we've purchased 173,300 of our shares at an average price of $8.62 per share, or a 16% discount to our book value.  We will continue to evaluate future repurchases, as appropriate.”

Board Declares Quarterly Cash Dividend of $0.0575 Per Share

On January 28, 2019, the Board of Directors of the Company declared a quarterly cash dividend of $0.0575 per common share.  The dividend is payable on February 19, 2019 to shareholders of record as of February 8, 2019.

Net Interest Income

Net interest income for the quarter ended December 31, 2018 totaled $31.8 million compared to $31.7 million for the previous quarter and $27.6 million for the same period last year. As compared to the linked quarter, net interest income was positively impacted by growth in the average balance and yield of our loan portfolio, which increased by $171.3 million and 7 basis points and, to a lesser extent, an increase in the average balance and yield of our available for sale investment portfolio, which grew by $33.8 million and 23 basis points, respectively.  These items were partially offset by a $229.7 million increase in the average balance of our deposits, as well as an increase in the cost of deposits of 19 basis points.  The $4.2 million, or 15.2%, increase in net interest income over the same period last year was primarily related to growth in the average balance and yield of our loan portfolio.  During the quarter ended December 31, 2018, the average balance of loans increased by $1.2 billion and the yield increased by 35 basis points, compared to the same period last year.  The improvement in net interest income was further enhanced by growth in the average balance and yield of our available for sale investment portfolio, which increased by $150.5 million and 84 basis points, respectively.  This increase during the current quarter compared to the same period last year was partially offset by growth in the average balance of our deposits of $1.2 billion and increases in the cost of funds in connection with both our deposits and FHLB advances of 66 and 70 basis points, respectively.  Net interest margin for the quarter ended December 31, 2018 was 1.88%, compared to 1.94% for the previous quarter and 2.05% for the same period last year. The decline in net interest margin from these previous periods primarily relates to our rising cost of funds which has generally outpaced the increases in yields on our interest earning assets.  Our net interest spread in the fourth quarter of 2018 declined by 7 basis points and 22 basis points, respectively, compared to the previous quarter and the same period last year.

Net interest income for the year ended December 31, 2018 totaled $125.1 million compared to $110.9 million for the same period last year. The $14.2 million, or 12.8%, increase in net interest income over the same period last year was primarily related to growth in the average balance and yield of our loan portfolio.  During the year ended December 31, 2018, the average balance of loans increased by $795.5 million and the yield increased by 32 basis points, compared to the same period last year.  The improvement in net interest income was further enhanced by growth in the average balance and yield of our available for sale investment portfolio, which increased by $102.6 million and 72 basis points, respectively.  This increase was partially offset by growth in the average balance of our deposits of $869.5 million and an increase in the cost of funds in connection with both our deposits and FHLB advances of 47 and 75 basis points, respectively.  Net interest margin for the year ended December 31, 2018 was 1.98% as compared to 2.05% for the year ended December 31, 2017.  The 7 basis point decline primarily relates to a 12 basis point reduction in our net interest spread.   As discussed above, this is the result of our rising cost of funds which has generally outpaced the increases in yields on our interest earning assets.

Noninterest Income

Noninterest income for the quarter ended December 31, 2018 totaled $1.2 million, compared to $1.0 million for the previous quarter and $1.5 million for the same period last year.  The increase of $203 thousand in noninterest income, or 19.5%, for the quarter ended December 31, 2018 compared to the linked quarter ended September 30, 2018, was primarily attributable to an increase of $388 thousand due to a special FHLB dividend received during the current quarter, partially offset by a gain on sale of loans of $140 thousand during the linked quarter. The decrease of $248 thousand in noninterest income, or 16.6%, for the quarter ended December 31, 2018 compared to the quarter ended December 31, 2017, was primarily attributable to a decrease of $562 thousand in fee income related to mortgage servicing rights, partially offset by an increase due to the FHLB special dividend discussed above.

Noninterest income for the year ended December 31, 2018 totaled $4.1 million, compared to $7.5 million for the year ended December 31, 2017.  The decrease of $3.4 million, or 45.0%, was primarily attributable to the gain on sale of loans related to the Company's multifamily loan securitization in September 2017. During the year ended December 31, 2017, the Company recognized gains in connection with the sale of loans of $3.3 million.

Noninterest income primarily consists of FHLB stock dividends, fee income and the financial impact related to loans sold and loans held for sale.

Noninterest Expense

Noninterest expense for the quarter ended December 31, 2018 totaled $18.0 million compared to $15.1 million for the previous quarter and $13.2 million for the same period last year.  Compared to the linked quarter, noninterest expense increased $2.9 million, or 19.0%, primarily due to increases of $2.0 million and $340 thousand in compensation related costs and consulting fees, respectively, primarily due to expenses incurred in connection with the Company's CEO succession plan.  Compared to the same period last year, noninterest expense increased $4.7 million, or 35.9%, during the quarter ended December 31, 2018 primarily attributable to an increase of $2.9 million in compensation costs incurred related to our CEO succession plan and growth in our overall headcount, as well as an increase of $1.2 million in marketing expenses related to deposit gathering efforts.  Noninterest expense for the year ended December 31, 2018 totaled $62.7 million compared to $56.5 million for the same period last year, an increase of $6.1 million, or 10.9%.  As discussed above, this variance is primarily due to increases in compensation related costs and marketing expenses of $2.3 million and $2.6 million, respectively, related to costs associated with our CEO succession plan and deposit gathering efforts.

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, 2018 were $6.9 billion, an increase of $1.2 billion from December 31, 2017.  The increase was primarily due to a $1.1 billion, or 21.6%, increase in loans held-for-investment and a $116.7 million, or 23.2%, increase in available for sale investment securities.  Total liabilities at December 31, 2018 and 2017 were $6.4 billion and $5.2 billion, respectively.  The increase of $1.2 billion, or 23.3%, was primarily attributable to growth in our deposits of $1.0 billion, or 26.6%, and an increase in FHLB advances of $153.9 million, or 15.6%, compared to December 31, 2017.

Loans

Total loans at December 31, 2018 were $6.1 billion, an increase of $1.1 billion from December 31, 2017.  The increase was primarily attributable to originations of multifamily and single family residential loans.  Our loan portfolio generally consists of income property loans (IPL) and single family residential (SFR) mortgage loans, which represent 62.9% and 36.9%, respectively, of our total loan portfolio.

Our IPL portfolio primarily consists of hybrid multifamily residential and commercial real estate loans.  IPL loans totaled $3.9 billion at December 31, 2018 compared to $3.0 billion at December 31, 2017. The yield on the IPL portfolio was 4.01% and 3.89%, respectively, during the quarter and year ended December 31, 2018, compared to 3.68% and 3.54%, respectively, during the same periods last year.  For the quarter and year ended December 31, 2018, IPL loan originations and the corresponding weighted average coupon totaled $268.2 million and $1.2 billion, respectively, and 4.73% and 4.58%, respectively, compared to $363.2 million and $1.4 billion, respectively, and 4.07% and 4.02%, respectively, for the same periods last year. The increasing yield was caused by both a general rise in interest rates and a greater proportion of loans originated in extended and non-core geographies as compared to the prior fiscal year.  Prepayment speeds within the IPL loan portfolio were 9.1% and 8.1%, respectively, for the quarter and year ended December 31, 2018, compared to 10.3% and 10.6%, respectively, during the same periods last year.

Our SFR loan portfolio generally consists of hybrid loans.  SFR loans totaled $2.3 billion and $2.0 billion at December 31, 2018 and 2017, respectively. The yield on the SFR portfolio was 3.66% and 3.53%, respectively, during the quarter and year ended December 31, 2018, compared to 3.29% and 3.25%, respectively, during the same periods last year.  For the quarter and year ended December 31, 2018, SFR loan originations and the corresponding weighted average coupon totaled $198.4 million and $828.9 million, respectively, and 4.69% and 4.67%, respectively, compared to $221.1 million and $726.5 million, respectively, and 3.94% and 3.96%, respectively, for the same periods last year. The increase in SFR originations during the year ended December 31, 2018 compared to the same period last year was primarily attributable to a general increase in customer demand while the increasing yield was caused by a combination of rising interest rates and a greater percentage of niche product originations.  Prepayment speeds within the SFR loan portfolio were 26.4% and 24.3% during the quarter and year ended December 31, 2018, respectively, compared to 23.8% and 24.7%, respectively, during the same periods last year.

Asset Quality

Nonperforming loans totaled $2.2 million, or 0.04% of total loans, at December 31, 2018, compared to $7.0 million, or 0.14% of total loans, at December 31, 2017.  There was no real estate owned at December 31, 2018 and 2017 and we have not foreclosed on any collateral since 2015.  For the quarter ended December 31, 2018, loan loss provisions of $150 thousand were recorded compared to $650 thousand in the prior quarter and $1.3 million for the same period last year.  The lower loan loss provision recorded during the current quarter compared to these previous periods is primarily due to the sustained performance of our loan portfolio and improving credit quality.  Our allowance for loan losses to total loans was 0.56% at December 31, 2018, compared to 0.58% at September 30, 2018 and 0.60% at December 31, 2017.

During the year ended December 31, 2018, loan loss provisions of $3.6 million were recorded compared to a reversal of provisions for loan losses of $3.4 million during the same period last year.  The provision for loan losses recorded during the year ended December 31, 2018 was primarily attributable to loan growth. The reversal of loan loss provisions recorded during the same period last year was due to improvements in the credit metrics of our loan portfolio.

Prepaid Expenses and Other Assets

Prepaid expenses and other assets totaled $64.6 million at December 31, 2018 compared to $57.2 million at December 31, 2017, an increase of $7.4 million or 12.9%.  The variance was primarily attributable to a $5.3 million increase in accrued interest receivable resulting from growth in our loan portfolio during the year ended December 31, 2018.      

Prepaid expenses and other assets primarily consist of prepaid expenses, accrued interest receivable, premises and equipment and tax related items.

Deposits

Deposits totaled $5.0 billion at December 31, 2018, an increase of $1.0 billion from December 31, 2017. Retail deposits represented 82.0% of the growth, or $860.7 million, while wholesale deposits represented 18.0%, or $189.1 million.  Our cost of deposits was 1.81% and 1.52%, respectively, during the quarter and year ended December 31, 2018 compared to 1.62% during the linked quarter and 1.15% and 1.05%, respectively, during the same periods last year.  The change in our cost of deposits was primarily related to cost increases in our time deposit portfolio, which have been impacted by rising interest rates and competitive pricing pressures.  The cost of time deposits increased to 2.16% and 1.84%, respectively, during the quarter and year ended December 31, 2018, compared to 1.38% and 1.28%, respectively, for the same periods last year.

Capital

Stockholders’ equity totaled $581.1 million, an increase of $31.4 million, or 5.7%, compared to December 31, 2017. Stockholders' equity represented 8.4% of total assets at December 31, 2018, compared to 9.6% at December 31, 2017.  Both the Bank’s and the Company’s capital levels continue to be significantly above the minimum levels required for bank regulatory capital purposes. At December 31, 2018, our Tier 1 Leverage, Common Equity Tier 1 Risk-Based, Tier 1 Risk-Based and Total Risk-Based Capital ratios were 10.65%, 18.43%, 18.43% and 19.33%, respectively, for the Bank, and 9.42%, 14.74%, 16.30% and 17.20%, respectively, for the Company.  At December 31, 2018, the Company’s tangible stockholders' equity ratio was 8.33%.

During the quarter and year ended December 31, 2018, the Company repurchased 173,300 shares in connection with its stock repurchase program at an average cost of $8.62 per share and a total amount of $1.5 million.

(1) For periods prior to January 1, 2018, we calculate our pro forma net income, earnings per share, return on average assets, return on average equity and return on average tangible equity by adding back our franchise S-Corporation tax to net income, and using a combined C-Corporation effective tax rate for Federal and California income taxes of 42.0%. This calculation reflects only the change in our status as an S-Corporation and does not give effect to any other transaction. For periods in 2018, our actual provision for income taxes is used for comparative purposes.
