SANTA ROSA, Calif., Oct. 25, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Luther Burbank Corporation (NASDAQ: LBC) (the “Company”), the holding company for Luther Burbank Savings (the “Bank”), today reported net income of $21.0 million and $66.5 million, or $0.41 and $1.30 diluted earnings per common share (“EPS”), for the quarter and nine months ended September 30, 2022, respectively.

Simone Lagomarsino, President and Chief Executive Officer, stated, “I'm proud to report our earnings for the third quarter despite a challenging interest rate environment. Loans grew at an annualized rate of 13% during the quarter, benefiting from a combination of healthy loan demand and slowing prepayment speeds. Originations exceeded $530 million during the quarter, while prepayment speeds have started to moderate as a result of the increase in interest rates, which has made refinancing activity less attractive to our existing borrowers. The weighted average rate on newly originated loans increased to 4.65% during the quarter, helping to improve our quarterly loan yield to 3.70%. On the deposit side, retail deposits declined by $92 million during the quarter as alternative investment opportunities for our depositors have put pressure on our ability to generate retail deposits. We primarily utilized wholesale sources to fund our loan originations during the quarter, negatively impacting our cost of funds, which rose by 49 basis points. As a result, our quarterly net interest margin declined by 20 basis points to 2.42% compared to 2.62% during the linked quarter. Through it all, credit quality has remained pristine with nonperforming assets to total assets decreasing to 0.05% from 0.07% at the end of the linked quarter. As I suggested last quarter, I am encouraged by the credit strength of our loan portfolio, which I firmly believe has us well positioned to successfully manage through an anticipated slowing of the economy. Finally, we continue to be one of the most efficient banks in our industry, with an efficiency ratio of 34% and a ratio of noninterest expense to total average assets of 80 basis points.”

Ms. Lagomarsino concluded, "I'm also pleased to announce that our tangible book value per share grew by an annualized rate of 3%, to $13.18, as compared to year end, despite the net impact that rising interest rates have had on the market value adjustments of our available for sale investment portfolio. These adjustments are included in equity through accumulated other comprehensive income and totaled, net of tax, $10.5 million during the quarter and $31.9 million year to date.”

Income Statement

The Company reported net income of $21.0 million, or $0.41 EPS, for the three months ended September 30, 2022 compared to net income of $22.6 million, or $0.44 EPS, for the linked quarter. Pre-tax, pre-provision net earnings totaled $30.4 million for the three months ended September 30, 2022 compared to $34.5 million for the linked quarter.

Net Interest Income

Net interest income in the third quarter of 2022 was $45.5 million, a decrease of $2.0 million from the second quarter, due to higher interest expense on our deposit portfolio and Federal Home Loan Bank ("FHLB") advances, partially offset by higher interest income on loans and investments. The increase in interest expense was primarily due to higher interest rates on deposits and an increase in the average balance and cost of FHLB advances. The increase in loan interest income was primarily due to higher income earned on our interest rate swaps, as well as an increase in the average balance and interest rate of loans. Interest income on investments benefited from an increase in interest rates. At September 30, 2022, 43% of our investments were in their floating rate period and had a weighted average repricing frequency of 2.9 months. As compared to the linked quarter, the average balance and cost of interest bearing deposits and FHLB advances increased by $74.5 million and 50 basis points, respectively, and $207.6 million and 30 basis points, respectively, while the average balance and yield on our loan portfolio and investments increased by $254.8 million and 20 basis points, respectively, and $28.8 million and 67 basis points, respectively.

During the three months ended September 30, 2022, the Company entered into two new interest rate swap agreements with an aggregate notional amount of $300 million. The swaps provide a hedge against the interest rate risk associated with hybrid adjustable loans in their fixed period. As of September 30, 2022, the Company held swaps with an aggregate notional amount of $1.3 billion. At September 30, 2022, these swaps carried a weighted average fixed rate payment of 1.54%, while receiving a federal funds weighted average rate of 3.08%. The net hedging impact associated with our swaps is reported in interest income on loans.

Net interest margin for the third quarter of 2022 was 2.42% compared to 2.62% for the previous quarter. Our net interest margin reflects the net impact of an increase in the cost of interest bearing liabilities, partially offset by an increase in the yield on interest earning assets. During the third quarter, the cost of our interest bearing liabilities increased by 49 basis points primarily due to an increase in the cost of our deposits and FHLB advances, while the yield on our interest earning assets increased by 25 basis points primarily due to an increase in our loan and investment yields. Our net interest spread in the third quarter was 2.30%, decreasing by 24 basis points as compared to the linked quarter.

Noninterest Income

Noninterest income for the third quarter of 2022 was $269 thousand, a decrease of $93 thousand compared to the second quarter. The decrease was primarily attributable to declines in the fair value of equity securities and deposit related fee income, partially offset by an increase in income earned on Community Reinvestment Act ("CRA") investments. Changes in fair value are primarily attributed to the rise in market interest rates.

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

Noninterest expense for the third quarter of 2022 was $15.4 million, an increase of $2.1 million compared to the linked quarter. The increase was predominantly due to a $1.8 million increase in compensation costs primarily due to a $1.6 million decline in capitalized loan origination costs due to lower loan origination volume. Our efficiency ratio was 33.6% for the quarter ended September 30, 2022 compared to 27.9% for the previous quarter and was impacted by the increase in noninterest expense as well as the declines in net interest income and noninterest income.

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

Total assets at September 30, 2022 were $7.9 billion, an increase of $741.6 million, or 10.3%, from December 31, 2021. The increase was primarily due to a $557.0 million increase in loans and a $118.2 million increase in cash and cash equivalents as compared to prior year-end. Total liabilities were $7.2 billion at quarter end, an increase of $734.1 million, or 11.3%, from December 31, 2021. The increase in total liabilities was primarily attributable to a $450.0 million increase in FHLB advances and growth in our deposits of $256.1 million.

Loans

Total loans at September 30, 2022 were $6.9 billion, increasing 8.8% compared to December 31, 2021. Loan growth during the nine months ended September 30, 2022 was driven by origination volume of $1.8 billion, partially offset by the early prepayment of loans. Our loan portfolio generally consists of income property loans ("IPL") and single family residential ("SFR") mortgage loans, which represent 68.2% and 31.5%, respectively, of our total loan portfolio. Our IPL portfolio primarily consists of hybrid-adjustable rate multifamily residential and nonresidential commercial real estate loans and totaled $4.7 billion and $4.4 billion at September 30, 2022 and December 31, 2021, respectively. Our SFR loan portfolio totaled $2.2 billion and $1.9 billion, respectively, as of the same dates, and consisted primarily of hybrid-adjustable rate loans representing 85.1% and 84.4% of the total, respectively. The remaining portion of our SFR loan portfolio consisted of 30-year fixed rate loans.

(1) The table above excludes loan data related to construction and land loans, which are insignificant components of our loan portfolio.
(2) The Company purchased a pool of fixed rate SFR loans totaling $287.8 million, with a weighted average coupon rate of 2.31%, in February 2021, which is excluded from our loan originations for the nine months ended September 30, 2021 and the weighted average coupon on loan originations above.

During the three months ended September 30, 2022, the Company's internal production of new loans was $530.1 million, a decrease of $202.8 million, or 27.7%, as compared to the linked quarter. During the quarter, the weighted average coupon on SFR and IPL loan originations increased by 116 and 92 basis points, respectively, compared to the linked quarter due to the current rising interest rate environment.

During the current quarter, IPL prepayment speeds slowed as the increase in interest rates have started to affect refinance activity. The interest rate on the prepayment and other principal reduction of IPL loans was 3.95% and 3.96% for the quarters ended September 30, 2022 and June 30, 2022, respectively.

During the three months ended September 30, 2022, SFR portfolio yields increased by 62 basis points compared to the linked quarter primarily due to the origination of new loans at substantially higher rates, and to a lesser extent, a $1.2 million increase in income earned on a swap that hedges a pool of fixed rate SFR loans and a $961 thousand decline in accelerated loan cost amortization on paid off loans. Consistent with the IPL discussion above, SFR loan portfolio prepayment speeds decreased during the current quarter due to rising market interest rates. The interest rate on the prepayment and other principal reduction of SFR loans was 3.60% and 3.59% for the quarters ended September 30, 2022 and June 30, 2022, respectively.

Asset Quality

Nonperforming assets totaled $3.8 million, or 0.05% of total assets, at September 30, 2022 compared to $2.3 million, or 0.03% of total assets, at December 31, 2021. Criticized loans, which includes loans graded Special Mention and of greater risk, were $24.1 million at September 30, 2022 compared to $16.7 million at December 31, 2021. Classified loans, which includes loans graded Substandard and of greater risk, totaled $20.7 million and $12.1 million at September 30, 2022 and December 31, 2021, respectively. The increase in criticized and classified loan balances over the past nine months was primarily attributed to isolated credit related downgrades of several loans and are not thought to represent any particular declining credit trends in our loan portfolio. As compared to the linked quarter, classified loans decreased by $1.8 million, declining as a result of the payoff of two adversely graded loans during the current quarter. As of September 30, 2022 and December 31, 2021, we had no real estate owned and we have not foreclosed on any collateral since 2015.

During the three months ended September 30, 2022, the Company recorded loan loss provisions of $500 thousand compared to loan loss provisions of $2.5 million during the three months ended June 30, 2022. The current quarter provision was primarily related to loan growth while the prior quarter provision was related to loan growth and an increase in classified loan balances. Our allowance for loan losses to total loans was 0.53% at September 30, 2022 compared to 0.54% and 0.56% at June 30, 2022 and December 31, 2021, respectively. The allowance for loan losses and the provisions for loan losses recognized were determined based on the incurred loss methodology. The Company expects to adopt the current expected credit loss ("CECL") allowance methodology on January 1, 2023.

Prepaid Expenses and Other Assets

Prepaid expenses and other assets totaled $145.6 million at September 30, 2022 compared to $77.3 million at December 31, 2021, an increase of $68.3 million, or 88.3%. This increase was primarily due to a $24.3 million increase in the fair value of our swaps due to rising interest rates, an additional $17.6 million investment in CRA qualified activities, a $13.0 million increase in deferred tax assets related to the decline in the fair value of available for sale investment securities and the recording of right-of-use assets related to the adoption of the new lease accounting standard on January 1, 2022, currently totaling $12.8 million. The new lease standard requires lessees to record a right-of-use asset and lease liability for all long-term lease obligations.

Prepaid expenses and other assets primarily consist of bank-owned life insurance, prepaid expenses, accrued interest receivable, premises and equipment, lease right-of-use assets and tax related items.

Deposits

Deposits totaled $5.8 billion at September 30, 2022, an increase of $256.1 million, or 4.6%, from December 31, 2021. Brokered deposits increased $314.7 million, while retail deposits decreased $58.6 million from December 31, 2021. The increase in brokered deposits was generally utilized to support loan growth. During the current quarter, as a result of the rising interest rate environment, we saw a change in customer preferences related to term deposits. Consequently, the proportion of non-maturity deposits within the portfolio decreased to 54.9% compared to 57.8% at December 31, 2021, while our portfolio of time deposits increased to 45.1% from 42.2% at December 31, 2021. Our cost of interest bearing deposits was 1.00% during the quarter ended September 30, 2022 compared to 0.50% during the linked quarter. The increase in our cost of interest bearing deposits compared to the prior quarter was predominantly due to rate increases in both retail and brokered deposits.

FHLB Advances

FHLB advances totaled $1.2 billion and $751.6 million at September 30, 2022 and December 31, 2021, respectively. The increase in FHLB advances was primarily utilized to fund loan growth. At September 30, 2022, the weighted average interest rate and weighted average remaining maturity of FHLB advances outstanding was 2.34% and 1.7 years, respectively, compared to 1.68% and 2.3 years, respectively, at December 31, 2021.

Other Liabilities

Other liabilities totaled $92.3 million at September 30, 2022 compared to $64.4 million at December 31, 2021, an increase of $27.9 million, or 43.3%. The increase primarily relates to an increase in lease liabilities of $12.5 million related to the adoption of the new lease accounting standard at the beginning of the year, a $9.4 million increase in loan customer escrow account balances and a $6.6 million increase in unfunded commitments to support low income housing. See further discussion regarding the new lease standard above under "Prepaid Expenses and Other Assets".

Other liabilities primarily consist of accrued employee benefits, loan escrow balances, checks outstanding, lease liabilities and accrued interest payable.

Stockholders’ equity totaled $676.7 million at September 30, 2022, an increase of $7.5 million, or 1.1%, compared to December 31, 2021. The increase in stockholders' equity was primarily due to net income of $66.5 million, partially offset by a decline in the fair value of available for sale investment securities, net of tax, of $31.9 million, dividends paid of $18.5 million and stock repurchases of $9.7 million during the nine months ended September 30, 2022. The $20.0 million stock repurchase plan, initiated in November 2020, was completed during the second quarter of 2022.

On October 25, 2022, the Board of Directors of the Company declared a quarterly cash dividend of $0.12 per common share. The dividend is payable on November 14, 2022 to shareholders of record as of November 4, 2022.
