SANTA ROSA, Calif., July 28, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Luther Burbank Corporation (NASDAQ: LBC) (the “Company”), the holding company for Luther Burbank Savings (the “Bank”), today reported net income of $9.3 million and $16.9 million, or $0.18 and $0.31, diluted earnings per common share (“EPS”), for the three and six months ended June 30, 2020, respectively.

Simone Lagomarsino, President and Chief Executive Officer, stated, “As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to impact almost every aspect of our lives, the focus of our team has remained steadfast on supporting our customers and communities by ensuring that we are able to safely and securely serve their banking needs.  In March 2020, we implemented safety protocols at our offices and reduced branch hours, while simultaneously expanding phone and online customer support services. During this period, we have seen the best in our team, as they continue to selflessly remain committed to providing the highest level of service to our customers despite these difficult conditions." 

Ms. Lagomarsino continued, "Consistent with the prior quarter, our financial results for June 30, 2020 have been impacted by the pandemic; however, I'm encouraged that we've been able to maintain our profitability throughout this period, reporting quarterly net income of $9.3 million, or $0.18 per diluted share.  Furthermore, we are beginning to experience an improvement in our net interest margin resulting from the repricing of our deposits. During the quarter, deposits grew by $98.1 million while, at the same time, repricing down by 40 basis points. Net interest margin was 1.88% during the current quarter compared to 1.84% during the linked quarter.  As a result of the uncertain economic environment, we recorded an additional $5.3 million provision for loan losses during the quarter, increasing our allowance for loan losses coverage ratio by 12.3%, or eight basis points, to 0.73%. In addition, through the end of the second quarter, we have successfully modified 271 loans for customers affected by the pandemic with an aggregate outstanding loan balance of $398.4 million. We have sustained our strong liquidity and capital positions during this period. As of June 30, 2020, we had access to over $2.1 billion in liquidity resources and our Common Equity Tier 1 Capital ratio measured 14.7%.”

Board Declares Quarterly Cash Dividend of $0.0575 Per Share

On July 28, 2020, the Board of Directors of the Company declared a quarterly cash dividend of $0.0575 per common share.  The dividend is payable on August 17, 2020 to shareholders of record as of August 7, 2020.

Net Income

The Company reported net income of $9.3 million and $16.9 million, or $0.18 and $0.31 EPS, for the three and six months ended June 30, 2020, respectively, compared to net income of $7.6 million, or $0.14 EPS, for the linked quarter and $23.7 million, or $0.42 EPS, for the six months ended June 30, 2019.  Pre-tax, pre-provision net earnings totaled $18.5 million and $34.5 million for the three and six months ended June 30, 2020, respectively, compared to $16.1 million for the linked quarter and $34.6 million for the six months ended June 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

Q2 2020 vs Q1 2020
Net interest income in the second quarter was $33.1 million, an increase of $1.0 million from the first quarter, primarily due to lower interest expense on our deposit portfolio, which benefited from the decline in market interest rates that began in August 2019, but significantly accelerated in March 2020.  During the quarter, the cost of interest bearing deposits declined by 40 basis points as compared to the linked quarter. The improvement in net interest income was partially offset by a decline in interest income earned on our loan and investment portfolios caused by a decrease in the average yield of 19 and 64 basis points, respectively.  The decline in our loan yield was primarily caused by an increase in the cost of our interest rate swaps and the prepayment of higher yielding loans, which are being replaced by loans at lower current interest rates, partially offset by an increase in loan prepayment fees collected during the quarter. 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 second quarter was 1.88%, compared to 1.84% for the previous quarter. Consistent with the discussion above, our net interest margin benefited from the decline in the cost of interest bearing deposits, partially offset by a reduction in loan and investment yields. During the second quarter, the yield on our interest earning assets decreased by 25 basis points, while the cost of our interest bearing liabilities decreased by 32 basis points. Our net interest spread in the second quarter improved to 1.73%, increasing by 7 basis points as compared to the linked quarter. 

YTD 2020 vs YTD 2019
Net interest income totaled $65.3 million for the six months ended June 30, 2020, an increase of $2.6 million, compared to the same period last year.  The increase in net interest income was primarily impacted by a 31 basis point decline in the cost of interest bearing deposits, partially offset by a $153.0 million increase in the average balance 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 $131.0 million and 9 basis points, respectively. These items were partially offset by a $4.0 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, partially offset by a $48.5 million increase in the average balance of loans. Net interest income was further impacted by a 71 basis points decline in the yield on our investment securities. As discussed above, 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 six months ended June 30, 2020 was 1.86%, compared to 1.81% 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. The yield on our interest earning assets decreased by 21 basis points, while the cost of our interest bearing liabilities decreased by 29 basis points.  Our net interest spread for the six months ended June 30, 2020 was 1.70%, increasing by 8 basis points as compared to the same period last year. 

Noninterest Income

Q2 2020 vs Q1 2020
Noninterest income for the second quarter was $671 thousand, a decrease of $127 thousand compared to the first quarter.  The decrease is primarily attributable to a decrease of $161 thousand in FHLB dividends and $89 thousand in fair value adjustments recorded on equity securities, partially offset by an increase of $135 thousand in servicing fee income. During the second quarter, the FHLB decreased its annualized dividend rate from 7% to 5%. The increase in servicing fee income was primarily due to a reduction in the amortization of mortgage servicing rights caused by a slowing in the estimated prepayments of serviced loans as compared to the linked quarter. 

YTD 2020 vs YTD 2019
Noninterest income for the six months ended June 30, 2020 totaled $1.5 million, a decrease of $1.4 million compared to the same period last year.  The decrease was primarily due to a $530 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 $344 thousand decrease in servicing fee income related to elevated actual and estimated prepayments on serviced loans that decreased 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

Q2 2020 vs Q1 2020
Noninterest expense for the second quarter was $15.3 million, a decrease of $1.5 million compared to the first quarter. The decrease was primarily due to a decrease in compensation costs of $904 thousand caused by an increase in capitalized loan origination costs related to higher loan origination volume in the current quarter compared to the prior quarter and a decline in payroll taxes caused by the seasonal nature of these taxes.  Compensation cost declines were partially offset by an increase in commissions due to the increase in loan originations, discussed above.  Noninterest expense further benefited from a decrease of $546 thousand in marketing expenses associated with deposit gathering efforts.

YTD 2020 vs YTD 2019
Noninterest expense for the six months ended June 30, 2020 totaled $32.2 million, an increase of $1.2 million compared to the same period last year. The increase was primarily attributable to a $2.8 million increase in compensation costs mainly due to an increase in the required accrual for post-employment related benefits caused by an increase in estimated future costs resulting from a decline in interest rates, as well as an increase in our headcount. This increase was partially offset by a $1.0 million decrease in marketing costs, discussed above, and a $548 thousand decline in occupancy costs related 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 June 30, 2020 were $7.2 billion, an increase of $122.5 million, or 3.5% annualized, from December 31, 2019.  The increase was primarily due to a $78.9 million increase in cash, cash equivalents and restricted cash, a $50.1 million increase in loans and a $10.3 million increase in available for sale debt securities.  Total liabilities were $6.6 billion at June 30, 2020, an increase of $140.3 million, or 4.4% annualized, from December 31, 2019.  The increase in total liabilities was primarily attributable to growth in our deposits of $148.8 million, partially offset by a decrease in FHLB advances of $17.0 million compared to December 31, 2019

Loans

Total loans at June 30, 2020 were $6.3 billion, an increase of $50.1 million from December 31, 2019.  Our loan portfolio generally consists of income property loans ("IPL") and single family residential ("SFR") mortgage loans, which represent 68.4% and 31.4%, 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 June 30, 2020 compared to $4.2 billion at December 31, 2019. Our SFR loan portfolio also generally consists of hybrid loans and totaled $2.0 billion at both June 30, 2020 and December 31, 2019.

During the quarter ended June 30, 2020, compared to the linked quarter, IPL portfolio yields decreased by 26 basis points. The decline was primarily due to a $3.1 million increase in the cost of our swaps, which reduced the IPL portfolio yield by 29 basis points, as well as the prepayment of higher yielding loans being replaced by loans at lower current interest rates, partially offset by a $1.1 million increase in loan prepayment fees collected during the current quarter. The IPL yield during the six months ended June 30, 2020 declined 16 basis points compared to the same period last year. This decline was primarily due to a $4.0 million increase in the cost of our interest rate swaps, which reduced the IPL portfolio yield by 19 basis points, as well as the prepayment of higher yielding loans being replaced by loans at lower current interest rates. These items were partially offset by a $1.3 million increase in loan prepayment fees collected during the current year to date period. The decline in the IPL portfolio average coupon on originations in the quarter ended June 30, 2020 compared to the linked quarter and same period last year was due to a decline in market interest rates. The elevated IPL portfolio prepayment speeds during the current quarter and linked quarter 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 June 30, 2020 compared to the linked quarter, as well as the 15 basis point decline in the yield on the SFR portfolio during the six months ended June 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 June 30, 2020 compared to the linked quarter and same period last year was primarily due to a decline in market interest rates. The elevated SFR loan portfolio prepayment speeds during the current quarter and linked quarter were primarily related to customers refinancing their hybrid-ARM loans to take advantage of lower long-term interest rates.

Asset Quality

Nonperforming assets totaled $4.9 million, or 0.07% of total assets, at June 30, 2020, compared to $6.3 million, or 0.09% of total assets, at December 31, 2019.  Total criticized loans decreased by $1.3 million, or 2.8%, during the six months ended June 30, 2020. There was no real estate owned at June 30, 2020 or December 31, 2019 and we have not foreclosed on any collateral since 2015.  For the quarter ended June 30, 2020, as well as the quarter ended March 31, 2020, we recorded loan loss provisions of $5.3 million.  Of the loan loss provision recognized during the current quarter, $3.9 million was set aside to reserve for the uncertain impact associated with the COVID-19 pandemic, while $1.2 million was provided due to a $9.1 million increase in criticized loans during the current quarter as compared to the linked quarter. The increase in criticized loans was unrelated to the pandemic and was primarily related to a $6.6 million increase in Special Mention loans. To support our customers during this period, 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 June 30, 2020, we have modified 271 currently outstanding loans in connection with this program, representing aggregate outstanding loan balances of $226.5 million and $171.9 million, or 5.3% and 8.8%, of our IPL and SFR loan portfolios, respectively.  Since implementing the modification program, approximately 13.8% of these loans, with an aggregate balance of $55.0 million, have been removed from their forbearance period and returned to monthly payment status.  Additionally, two SFR loans totaling $2.2 million have paid off subsequent to their modifications. For the six months ended June 30, 2020, we have added $10.1 million to our allowance for loan losses in response to the COVID-19 environment.  Our allowance for loan losses to total loans was 0.73% at June 30, 2020, compared to 0.58% at December 31, 2019.  

Prepaid Expenses and Other Assets

Prepaid expenses and other assets totaled $57.4 million at June 30, 2020 compared to $62.7 million at December 31, 2019, a decrease of $5.2 million, or 8.3%.  The decline in prepaid expenses and other assets from December 31, 2019 was primarily due to a reduction in deferred income tax balances and a decrease in the fair value of our swap derivatives. 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 $5.4 billion at June 30, 2020, an increase of $148.8 million, or 2.8%, from December 31, 2019.  Retail deposits increased $184.8 million, while wholesale deposits decreased $36.0 million.  Our cost of interest bearing deposits was 1.49% during the quarter ended June 30, 2020 compared to 1.89% during the linked quarter and 2.05% 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 a decline in short-term interest rates due to the Federal Open Market Committee's interest rate cuts.

Other Liabilities

Other liabilities totaled $70.1 million at June 30, 2020, compared to $61.7 million at December 31, 2019, an increase of $8.4 million, or 13.6%.  This increase primarily relates to the fair value of our swap derivatives, which totaled $14.7 million at June 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 $596.7 million, a decrease of $17.8 million, or 2.9%, compared to December 31, 2019. The net decline in capital was attributed to the Company’s stock repurchase activity. We repurchased 3.9 million shares at an average share price of $9.01 during the six months ended June 30, 2020, or a 20.5% discount to tangible book value.  During the current quarter, the Company completed its $45.0 million stock repurchase program.  The Company repurchased a total of 4.9 million shares at an average share price of $9.19, or a 18.9% discount to our current tangible book value, in connection with the program. Stockholders' equity represented 8.3% and 8.7% of total assets at June 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 June 30, 2020, our Tier 1 Leverage, Common Equity Tier 1 Risk-Based, Tier 1 Risk-Based and Total Risk-Based Capital ratios were 10.3%, 18.3%, 18.3% and 19.5%, respectively, for the Bank, and 9.1%, 14.7%, 16.3% and 17.4%, respectively, for the Company.  At June 30, 2020, the Company’s tangible stockholders' equity ratio was 8.3%.  A schedule reconciling our GAAP financial amounts to the calculation of tangible stockholders' equity is provided in the tables below.
