SANTA ROSA, Calif., July 26, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Luther Burbank Corporation (NASDAQ: LBC) (the “Company”), the holding company for Luther Burbank Savings (the “Bank”), today reported net income of $22.6 million and $45.5 million, or $0.44 and $0.89 diluted earnings per common share (“EPS”), for the quarter and six months ended June 30, 2022, respectively.

Simone Lagomarsino, President and Chief Executive Officer, stated, “I'm proud to report our earnings for the second quarter, which are reflective of our commitment to our strategic plan focused on organic growth and quality earnings. During the quarter, loan originations exceeded $730 million and increased by 29% as compared to the linked quarter. This was the highest quarterly production ever in our history. In addition, the weighted average rate on newly originated loans benefited from rising interest rates and jumped to 3.55% during the quarter, helping to improve our quarterly loan yield. The changing economic environment appears to be slowing our loan prepayment rates after several years of generally increasing speeds. The combination of robust loan originations and slower prepayment speeds resulted in annualized loan growth of 17% for the quarter. Despite the current interest rate environment, the cost of our deposits only rose by five basis points during the quarter. As a result, our quarterly net interest margin improved by eight basis points to 2.62% compared to 2.54% during the linked quarter. Furthermore, credit quality remained solid during the quarter despite a modest uptick in the level of nonperforming assets to total assets, which increased to 0.07% from 0.03% at the end of the last quarter. This increase is attributed to borrower specific issues rather than any general credit trends. I am confident that the general strength of the credit metrics within our portfolio at quarter end will allow us to successfully weather the current economic volatility. In response to our strong loan growth and the incremental increase in nonperforming loans, we recorded a $2.5 million provision for loan losses during the quarter. Finally, we continue to be one of the most efficient banks in our industry, with an efficiency ratio of 28% and a ratio of noninterest expense to total average assets of 72 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 $13.09, 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, which, net of tax, are included in equity. Our tangible book value per share benefited from our consistent earnings and the successful execution of our $20 million stock repurchase program, which was completed this quarter. Through the program, we repurchased over 1.6 million shares at an average price per share of $12.17, or a discount to our current book value of over 7%.”

Income Statement

The Company reported net income of $22.6 million, or $0.44 EPS, for the three months ended June 30, 2022 compared to net income of $22.9 million, or $0.45 EPS, for the linked quarter. Pre-tax, pre-provision net earnings totaled $34.5 million for the three months ended June 30, 2022 compared to $29.6 million for the linked quarter.

Net Interest Income

Net interest income in the second quarter of 2022 was $47.5 million, an increase of $2.4 million from the first quarter, due to higher loan interest income, partially offset by higher interest expense on our deposit portfolio and Federal Home Loan Bank ("FHLB") advances. The increase in loan interest income was primarily due to an increase in the average balance of loans, lower accelerated loan cost amortization on paid off single family residential loans and higher income earned on our interest rate swaps. 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. As compared to the linked quarter, the average balance and yield on our loan portfolio increased by $202.9 million and 9 basis points, respectively, while the average balance and cost of interest bearing deposits increased by $56.8 million and 5 basis points, respectively, and FHLB advances increased $102.6 million and 3 basis points, respectively.

During the three months ended June 30, 2022, the Company entered into two new swap agreements with an aggregate notional amount of $200 million. The swaps provide a hedge against the interest rate risk associated with hybrid adjustable loans in their fixed period. As of June 30, 2022, the Company held swaps with an aggregate notional amount of $950 million. The net hedging impact associated with our swaps is reported in interest income on loans.

Net interest margin for the second quarter of 2022 was 2.62% compared to 2.54% for the previous quarter. Our net interest margin reflects the net impact of an increase in the yield on interest earning assets partly offset by an increase in the cost of interest bearing liabilities. During the second quarter, the yield on our interest earning assets increased by 15 basis points primarily due to the increase in loan yield, while the cost of our interest bearing liabilities increased by 7 basis points primarily due to the increase in deposit costs. Our net interest spread in the second quarter was 2.54%, increasing by 8 basis points as compared to the linked quarter.

Noninterest Income

Noninterest income for the second quarter of 2022 was $362 thousand, an increase of $304 thousand compared to the first quarter. The increase was primarily attributable to a $233 thousand decrease in the decline in the fair value of community development investments that are classified as equity securities. 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 second quarter of 2022 was $13.3 million, a decrease of $2.2 million compared to the linked quarter. The decrease was predominantly due to a $3.1 million decrease in compensation costs due to a $1.4 million decline in the required accrual for post-employment related retirement benefits resulting from an increase in interest rates. Compensation costs were further improved by a $1.2 million increase in capitalized loan origination costs due to stronger loan volume, as well as lower payroll taxes as compared to the first quarter of the year. Our efficiency ratio was 27.9% for the quarter ended June 30, 2022 compared to 34.4% for the previous quarter and benefited from a combination of stronger net interest income and noninterest income, as well as the decline in noninterest expense.

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 June 30, 2022 were $7.5 billion, an increase of $350.6 million, or 4.9%, from December 31, 2021. The increase was primarily due to a $340.4 million increase in loans and a $46.1 million increase in prepaid expenses and other assets, partially offset by a $51.9 million decline in cash and cash equivalents as compared to prior year-end. Total liabilities were $6.9 billion at quarter end, an increase of $348.1 million, or 5.3%, from December 31, 2021. The increase in total liabilities was primarily attributable to a $203.3 million increase in FHLB advances and growth in our deposits of $130.5 million.

Loans

Total loans at June 30, 2022 were $6.6 billion, increasing 5.4% compared to December 31, 2021. Loan growth during the six months ended June 30, 2022 was driven by origination volume of $1.3 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 69.3% and 30.3%, 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 $4.6 billion and $4.4 billion at June 30, 2022 and December 31, 2021, respectively. Our SFR loan portfolio totaled $2.0 billion and $1.9 billion, respectively, as of the same dates, and consisted primarily of hybrid-adjustable rate loans representing 84.0% 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 six months ended June 30, 2021 and the weighted average coupon on loan originations above.
 

During the three months ended June 30, 2022, the Company's internal production of new loans was $733.0 million, an increase of $164.1 million, or 28.8%, as compared to the linked quarter. During the quarter, the weighted average coupon on SFR and IPL loan originations increased by 97 basis points and 10 basis points, respectively, compared to the linked quarter. As compared to IPL loan originations, the weighted average coupon on SFR loan originations adjusted more quickly to the current interest rate environment primarily due to our ability to underwrite and fund SFR loans in about half of the time that is required for IPL loans which tend to be more complex. In addition, there was an elevated volume of IPL loans in the pipeline at the beginning the quarter, which were locked at low interest rates, and further slowed the pace of rate increases for funded loans.

During the current quarter, IPL prepayment speeds remained elevated relative to historical levels. Approximately 45% of our prepaid IPL loans during the current quarter were in-house refinances that were in the pipeline at March 31, 2022 and rate locked, as discussed above. These in-house refinances were the primary driver of the higher IPL prepayment speeds during the current quarter.

During the three months ended June 30, 2022, SFR portfolio yields increased by 36 basis points compared to the linked quarter primarily due to a $1.1 million decrease in accelerated loan cost amortization on paid off loans, increased income earned on our swap hedging fixed rate SFR loans and, to a lesser extent, the origination of new loans at substantially higher rates than the linked quarter. SFR loan portfolio prepayment speeds decreased during the current quarter due to rising market interest rates.

Asset Quality

Nonperforming assets totaled $5.0 million, or 0.07% of total assets, at June 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 $27.5 million at June 30, 2022 compared to $16.7 million at December 31, 2021. Classified loans, which includes loans graded Substandard and of greater risk, totaled $22.5 million and $12.1 million at June 30, 2022 and December 31, 2021, respectively. The increase in criticized and classified loan balances 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 of June 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 June 30, 2022, the Company recorded loan loss provisions of $2.5 million compared to a reversal of loan loss provisions of $2.5 million during the three months ended March 31, 2022. The current quarter provision was related to loan growth and the increase in classified loan balances while the prior quarter reversal related to the remaining portion of qualitative reserves established early in the pandemic. Our allowance for loan losses to total loans was 0.54% at June 30, 2022 compared to 0.52% and 0.56% at March 31, 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 $123.5 million at June 30, 2022 compared to $77.3 million at December 31, 2021, an increase of $46.1 million, or 59.7%. This increase was primarily due to the recording of right-of-use assets related to the adoption of the new lease accounting standard on January 1, 2022, currently totaling $15.4 million, a $13.2 million increase in the fair value of our swaps due to rising interest rates and the funding of a $10.0 million Community Reinvestment Act qualified investment. 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 $5.7 billion at June 30, 2022, an increase of $130.5 million, or 2.4%, from December 31, 2021. Brokered and retail deposits increased $97.3 million and $33.2 million, respectively, from December 31, 2021. The increase in deposits was generally utilized to support loan growth. During the six months ended June 30, 2022, the proportion of non-maturity deposits within the portfolio increased to 60.5% compared to 57.8% at December 31, 2021, while our portfolio of time deposits decreased to 39.5% from 42.2% at December 31, 2021. The change in the composition of our deposit portfolio was attributed to a combination of consumer preferences to maintain flexibility in the current changing interest rate environment, as well as our strategic goal of increasing transaction accounts. Our cost of interest bearing deposits was 0.50% during the quarter ended June 30, 2022 compared to 0.45% during the linked quarter. The increase in our cost of interest bearing deposits compared to the prior quarter was predominantly due to an increase in rates offered on our deposit products driven by rising market interest rates.

FHLB Advances

FHLB advances totaled $954.9 million and $751.6 million at June 30, 2022 and December 31, 2021, respectively. The increase in FHLB advances was utilized to fund robust loan growth. At June 30, 2022, the weighted average interest rate and weighted average remaining maturity of FHLB advances outstanding was 1.79% and 1.7 years, respectively, compared to 1.68% and 2.3 years, respectively, at December 31, 2021.

Other Liabilities

Other liabilities totaled $78.6 million at June 30, 2022 compared to $64.4 million at December 31, 2021, an increase of $14.2 million, or 22.0%. The increase primarily relates to an increase in lease liabilities of $15.7 million related to the adoption of the new lease accounting standard at the beginning of the year. 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, accrued interest payable and swap liabilities.

Stockholders’ equity totaled $671.6 million at June 30, 2022, an increase of $2.5 million, or 0.4%, compared to December 31, 2021. The increase in stockholders' equity was primarily due to net income of $45.5 million, partially offset by a decline in the fair value of available for sale investment securities, net of tax, of $21.4 million, dividends paid of $12.4 million and stock repurchases of $9.7 million during the six months ended June 30, 2022. The $20.0 million stock repurchase plan, initiated in November 2020, was completed during the current quarter. Through the term of the program, we repurchased a total of 1.6 million shares at an average price of $12.17, representing a discount of 7% to our tangible book value at June 30, 2022.

On July 26, 2022, the Board of Directors of the Company declared a quarterly cash dividend of $0.12 per common share. The dividend is payable on August 15, 2022 to shareholders of record as of August 5, 2022.
