SANTA ROSA, Calif., Oct. 27, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Luther Burbank Corporation (NASDAQ: LBC) (the “Company”), the holding company for Luther Burbank Savings (the “Bank”), today reported net income of $14.3 million and $31.2 million, or $0.27 and $0.58, diluted earnings per common share (“EPS”), for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2020, respectively.

Simone Lagomarsino, President and Chief Executive Officer, stated, “I'm proud to report our financial results for the quarter and nine months ended September 30, 2020. During the quarter, we reported net income of $14.3 million, or $0.27 per diluted share compared to $9.3 million, or $0.18 per diluted share during the linked quarter. Our improving results were primarily driven by growth in our net interest margin, which improved to 2.03% during the quarter and the reduction in our provision for loan losses, which benefited from positive credit trends related to borrowers impacted by the pandemic, and a general decline in the balance of our loan portfolio. Compared to the linked quarter, the cost of our interest bearing deposits has declined by 33 basis points as deposits continue to reprice down to lower current market interest rates. In addition, we've experienced robust growth in our retail deposits, which have increased by $363 million since the beginning of the year. The decline in the balance of our loan portfolio was primarily driven by reduced originations, as well as elevated prepayments, as we maintain somewhat tighter credit requirements, post COVID-19 outbreak, and as customers have generally been taking advantage of lower long-term interest rates by refinancing out of hybrid loans and into new, longer-term fixed rate loans. Additionally, I'm encouraged that we have been able to maintain our strong liquidity and capital positions during this period. As of September 30, 2020, we had access to $2.5 billion in liquidity resources and our Common Equity Tier 1 Capital ratio measured 15.4%."

Ms. Lagomarsino continued, "Despite the continued economic and societal impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, as well as the recent fires that have affected both Northern and Southern California, our team remains committed to providing uninterrupted banking services to our customers and communities. Since the pandemic started, we have successfully modified 269 loans for our customers requiring financial assistance with an aggregate outstanding loan balance of $397.5 million. Of these modified loans, I'm encouraged that over 80% have returned, or are returning, to their respective contractual loan payments within the next month. I'm also thankful that the fires appear to be contained and pleased to report that the financial impact to our loan portfolio appears to be nominal.”

Board Declares Quarterly Cash Dividend of $0.0575 Per Share

On October 27, 2020, the Board of Directors of the Company declared a quarterly cash dividend of $0.0575 per common share. The dividend is payable on November 16, 2020 to shareholders of record as of November 6, 2020.

Net Income

The Company reported net income of $14.3 million and $31.2 million, or $0.27 and $0.58 EPS, for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2020, respectively, compared to net income of $9.3 million, or $0.18 EPS, for the linked quarter and $36.4 million, or $0.65 EPS, for the nine months ended September 30, 2019. Pre-tax, pre-provision net earnings totaled $20.3 million and $54.9 million for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2020, respectively, compared to $18.5 million for the linked quarter and $52.1 million for the nine months ended September 30, 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

Q3 2020 vs Q2 2020

Net interest income in the third quarter of 2020 was $36.1 million, an increase of $3.0 million from the second 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 33 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 7 basis points and a $46.2 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 a decrease 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 third quarter of 2020 was 2.03%, compared to 1.88% 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. Our net interest margin was further negatively impacted by an increase in the average balance of our lower yielding cash, cash equivalents and restricted cash, which increased by $115.0 million from the linked quarter caused primarily by the combination of growing deposits and declining loan balances. During the third quarter, the yield on our interest earning assets decreased by 12 basis points, while the cost of our interest bearing liabilities decreased by 31 basis points. Our net interest spread in the third quarter improved to 1.92%, increasing by 19 basis points as compared to the linked quarter.

YTD 2020 vs YTD 2019

Net interest income totaled $101.4 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2020, an increase of $6.1 million, compared to the same period last year. The increase in net interest income was primarily impacted by a 51 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 $106.9 million and 10 basis points, respectively. These items were partially offset by a $8.9 million increase in the cost of our interest rate swaps as compared to the same period last 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.

Net interest margin for the nine months ended September 30, 2020 was 1.92%, compared to 1.82% for the same period last 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 comparative nine month period, the yield on our interest earning assets decreased by 33 basis points, while the cost of our interest bearing liabilities decreased by 46 basis points. Our net interest spread for the nine months ended September 30, 2020 was 1.77%, increasing by 13 basis points as compared to the same period last year.

Noninterest Income

Q3 2020 vs Q2 2020

Noninterest income for the third quarter of 2020 was $587 thousand, a decrease of $84 thousand compared to the second quarter of 2020. The decrease was primarily attributable to a decrease of $100 thousand in fair value adjustments recorded on equity securities.

YTD 2020 vs YTD 2019

Noninterest income for the nine months ended September 30, 2020 totaled $2.1 million, a decrease of $1.8 million compared to the same period 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 to date period, as well as a $327 thousand decrease in FHLB stock dividends and a $421 thousand reduction in servicing fee income related to a decline in the volume of serviced loans, as well as a decrease in the the fair value of our mortgage servicing rights during the current year to date period.

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

Q3 2020 vs Q2 2020

Noninterest expense for the third quarter of 2020 was $16.4 million, an increase of $1.0 million compared to the second quarter of 2020. The fluctuation was due to an increase in compensation costs of $1.1 million primarily caused by a decrease in capitalized loan origination costs related to lower loan volume in the current quarter compared to the prior quarter.

YTD 2020 vs YTD 2019

Noninterest expense for the nine months ended September 30, 2020 totaled $48.6 million, an increase of $1.6 million compared to the same period last year. The increase was primarily attributable to $5.1 million in higher compensation costs mainly due to an increase in the required accrual for post-employment related retirement benefits resulting from a decline in interest rates, as well as an increase in our headcount. These increased costs were partially offset by a $1.9 million decrease in marketing costs associated with deposit gathering efforts, an $817 thousand decline in occupancy costs, and a $1.1 million decline in the write-off of leasehold improvements. Both the decline in occupancy costs and the write-off of leasehold improvements were attributable to the relocation of two facilities in late 2019.

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 September 30, 2020 were $7.1 billion, an increase of $25.8 million, or 0.5% annualized, from December 31, 2019. The increase was primarily due to a $122.7 million increase in cash, cash equivalents and restricted cash, partially offset by an $82.5 million decrease in loans and a $10.1 million increase in our allowance for loan losses as compared to December 31, 2019. Total liabilities were $6.5 billion at September 30, 2020, an increase of $31.5 million, or 0.7% annualized, from December 31, 2019. The increase in total liabilities was primarily attributable to growth in our deposits of $42.0 million, partially offset by a decrease in FHLB advances of $17.0 million compared to December 31, 2019.

Loans

Total loans at September 30, 2020 were $6.1 billion, a decrease of $82.5 million from December 31, 2019. Our loan portfolio generally consists of income property loans ("IPL") and single family residential ("SFR") mortgage loans, which represent 69.8% and 29.9%, respectively, of our total loan portfolio. Our IPL portfolio primarily consists of hybrid multifamily residential and commercial real estate loans and totaled $4.3 billion at September 30, 2020 compared to $4.2 billion at December 31, 2019. Our SFR loan portfolio also generally consists of hybrid loans and totaled $1.8 billion and $2.0 billion at September 30, 2020 and December 31, 2019, respectively.

During the quarter ended September 30, 2020, compared to the linked quarter, IPL portfolio yields decreased by 6 basis points. The decline was primarily due to the prepayment of higher yielding loans being replaced by loans at lower current interest rates. The IPL yield during the nine months ended September 30, 2020 declined 30 basis points compared to the same period last year. This decline was primarily due to a $8.9 million increase in the cost of our interest rate swaps, which reduced the IPL portfolio yield by 28 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 September 30, 2020 compared to the linked quarter and same period last 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 6 basis point decrease in yield on the SFR portfolio during the quarter ended September 30, 2020 compared to the linked quarter, as well as the 16 basis point decline in the yield on the SFR portfolio during the nine months ended September 30, 2020 compared to the same period last year, were both the result of the prepayment of higher yielding loans being replaced with loans at lower current interest rates. The decline in the average coupon on originations in the SFR loan portfolio in the quarter ended September 30, 2020 compared to the linked quarter and same period last 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 $4.8 million, or 0.07% of total assets, at September 30, 2020, compared to $6.3 million, or 0.09% of total assets, at December 31, 2019. Total criticized loans increased by $2.5 million, or 5.6%, during the nine months ended September 30, 2020. There was no real estate owned at September 30, 2020 or December 31, 2019 and we have not foreclosed on any collateral since 2015. For the quarter ended September 30, 2020, we recorded no loan loss provisions, compared to $5.3 million in the linked quarter. During the current quarter, the net impact to our provision for loan losses caused by slightly higher criticized loans and reduced needs in connection with COVID-19 as a result of declining loan deferral requests and positive trends of existing modified loans, as compared to the previous quarter, were entirely offset by declining loan balances.

During the nine months ended September 30, 2020 and 2019, the Company recorded loan loss provisions of $10.6 million and $250 thousand, respectively. The loan loss provisions recognized during the nine months ended September 30, 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 September 30, 2020, we have modified 269 currently outstanding loans in connection with this program, representing aggregate outstanding loan balances of $236.9 million and $160.6 million, or 5.6% and 8.9%, of our IPL and SFR loan portfolios, respectively. Since implementing the modification program, approximately 27.2% of these loans, with an aggregate outstanding loan balance of $107.9 million, have returned to monthly payments following their respective forbearance period. In addition, approximately 53.9% of these loans, with an aggregate outstanding loan balance of $214.2 million, have indicated they intend to return to monthly payments following their respective forbearance period. Additionally, 12 SFR loans and three IPL loans totaling $20.3 million and $3.7 million, respectively, have paid off subsequent to their modification. For the nine months ended September 30, 2020, we have added $10.2 million to our allowance for loan losses in response to the COVID-19 environment. Our allowance for loan losses to total loans was 0.75% at September 30, 2020 compared to 0.58% at December 31, 2019.

Prepaid Expenses and Other Assets

Prepaid expenses and other assets totaled $63.2 million at September 30, 2020 compared to $62.7 million at December 31, 2019, an increase of $583 thousand, or 0.9%. 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 September 30, 2020, an increase of $42.0 million, or 0.8%, from December 31, 2019. Retail deposits increased $363.0 million, while wholesale deposits decreased $321.0 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 and cash equivalents from the balance sheet. Our cost of interest bearing deposits was 1.16% during the quarter ended September 30, 2020 compared to 1.49% during the linked quarter and 2.07% during the same period last year. The decrease in our cost of interest bearing deposits compared to the linked quarter and same period 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.

Other Liabilities

Other liabilities totaled $68.0 million at September 30, 2020, compared to $61.7 million at December 31, 2019, an increase of $6.4 million, or 10.3%. This increase primarily relates to the fair value of our swap derivatives, which totaled $10.8 million at September 30, 2020, compared to $746 thousand at December 31, 2019. Other liabilities primarily consist of accrued employee benefits, loan escrow balances, checks outstanding, accrued interest payable and swap liabilities.

Capital

Stockholders’ equity totaled $608.8 million, a decrease of $5.6 million, or 0.9%, compared to December 31, 2019. The net decline in capital was attributed to the Company’s stock repurchase activity. The Company completed its $45.0 million stock repurchase program during the second quarter of 2020. The Company repurchased a total of 4.9 million shares at an average share price of $9.19, or a 20.5% discount to our current tangible book value, in connection with the program. Stockholders' equity represented 8.6% and 8.7% of total assets at September 30, 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 September 30, 2020, our Tier 1 Leverage, Common Equity Tier 1 Risk-Based, Tier 1 Risk-Based and Total Risk-Based Capital ratios were 10.4%, 19.1%, 19.1% and 20.3%, respectively, for the Bank, and 9.2%, 15.4%, 17.0% and 18.2%, respectively, for the Company. At September 30, 2020, the Company’s tangible stockholders' equity ratio was 8.6%. A schedule reconciling our GAAP financial amounts to the calculation of tangible stockholders' equity is provided in the tables below.
