SANTA ROSA, Calif., April 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 $22.9 million, or $0.45 diluted earnings per common share (“EPS”), for the quarter ended March 31, 2022.

Simone Lagomarsino, President and Chief Executive Officer, stated, “I'm proud to report our earnings for another solid quarter. Our financial results during the period benefited from our strategy of prioritizing quality earnings and a resilient balance sheet over aggressive growth. Our results were highlighted by strong organic loan originations and our deposit diversification, as well as our meticulous attention to credit quality and expense management. During the quarter, new loan volume was $569 million and consisted of a balanced mix of income property and single-family residential loans, while deposits increased modestly during the quarter with a continued trend of increasing transaction accounts. Our net interest margin was 2.54% during the current period compared to 2.57% during the linked quarter. The slight decline in margin was primarily driven by prepaid loans being replaced with new loans that were originated at lower current interest rates. Credit quality remained pristine during the quarter with our ratio of non-performing assets to total assets unchanged at 0.03%, and 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 86 basis points. In addition, as the economic impact from the pandemic further receded during the quarter, we made the decision to reverse the remaining portion of the qualitative reserves initially set aside in connection with the pandemic, resulting in the recapture of $2.5 million in loan loss provisions.”

Ms. Lagomarsino concluded, "I'm excited by the momentum generated by our start to the new year. Although the interest rate environment may present challenges, I'm confident that our team will continue to successfully execute our long-term strategic plan that is focused on purposeful and sustainable growth, and on utilizing technology to expand and deepen our customer lending and deposit relationships, with the ultimate goal of increasing our franchise value. In addition, through our current stock repurchase plan which was initiated in November 2020, we have improved our shareholders' value by acquiring 1.3 million shares at an average price per share of $11.90, or a discount to our current book value of over 8%. At March 31, 2022, there were $4.1 million of authorized funds remaining under the current $20 million repurchase program.”

Income Statement

The Company reported net income of $22.9 million, or $0.45 EPS, for the three months ended March 31, 2022 compared to net income of $23.4 million, or $0.45 EPS, for the linked quarter. Pre-tax, pre-provision net earnings totaled $29.6 million for the three months ended March 31, 2022 compared to $31.1 million for the linked quarter.

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

Net interest income in the first quarter of 2022 was $45.0 million, a decrease of $691 thousand from the fourth quarter of last year, due to lower loan interest income, partially offset by lower interest expense on our deposit portfolio, which has benefited from the low interest rate environment. The decline in loan interest income was primarily due to the prepayment of higher yielding loans being replaced with loans at lower current interest rates, as well as a decline in prepayment penalties collected on early loan payoffs. The decline in interest expense was primarily due to the maturity of higher rate term deposits repricing into lower cost products. As compared to the linked quarter, the yield on our loan portfolio declined by 10 basis points and the cost of interest bearing deposits declined by 3 basis points.

During the three months ended March 31, 2022, the Company entered into a new two-year swap agreement with a notional amount of $100 million. The swap provides a hedge against the interest rate risk associated with hybrid adjustable loans in their fixed period. As of March 31, 2022, the Company held swaps with an aggregate notional amount of $750 million. Costs associated with our swaps are reported in interest income on loans.

Net interest margin for the first quarter of 2022 was 2.54% compared to 2.57% for the previous quarter. Our net interest margin reflects the net impact of a decrease in the yield on interest earning assets partly offset by a decrease in the cost of interest bearing liabilities. During the first quarter, the yield on our interest earning assets decreased by 7 basis points primarily due to the decline in loan yield discussed above, while the cost of our interest bearing liabilities decreased by 3 basis points primarily due to the decline in the cost of our deposits. Our net interest spread in the first quarter was 2.46%, decreasing by 4 basis points as compared to the linked quarter.

Noninterest Income

Noninterest income for the first quarter of 2022 was $58 thousand, a decrease of $578 thousand compared to the fourth quarter of last year. The decrease was primarily attributable to a $577 thousand decline during the current quarter in the fair value of community development investments that are classified as equity securities compared to a $111 thousand decline during the linked quarter, both 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 first quarter of 2022 was $15.5 million, an increase of $286 thousand compared to the linked quarter. The increase was predominantly due to a $212 thousand increase in compensation costs, including the first calendar quarter impact of payroll taxes, partially offset by an increase in capitalized loan origination costs. Our efficiency ratio was 34.4% for the quarter ended March 31, 2022 compared to 32.8% for the previous quarter.

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 March 31, 2022 were $7.3 billion, an increase of $80.9 million, or 1.1%, from December 31, 2021. The increase was primarily due to a $68.9 million increase in loans and a $24.1 million increase in prepaid expenses and other assets, partially offset by a $23.1 million decline in investment securities as compared to December 31, 2021. Total liabilities were $6.6 billion at quarter end, an increase of $82.0 million, or 1.3%, from December 31, 2021. The increase in total liabilities was primarily attributable to growth in our deposits of $63.0 million and an increase of $18.9 million in other liabilities and accrued expenses compared to the prior year end.

Loans

Total loans at March 31, 2022 were $6.4 billion, an increase of $68.9 million compared to December 31, 2021. Loan growth during the current quarter was driven by origination volume of $568.9 million, while still tempered by continued elevated prepayment speeds. Our loan portfolio generally consists of income property loans ("IPL") and single family residential ("SFR") mortgage loans, which represent 69.5% and 30.1%, 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 $4.4 billion at both March 31, 2022 and December 31, 2021. Our SFR loan portfolio totaled $1.9 billion as of the same dates, and consisted primarily of hybrid-adjustable rate loans representing 84.5% 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 first quarter 2021 loan originations and the weighted average coupon on loan originations above.


During the three months ended March 31, 2022, the Company's internal production of new loans was $568.9 million, an increase of $70.2 million, or 14.1%, as compared to the linked quarter. During the quarter, the weighted average coupon on IPL loan originations increased by 3 basis points, while the weighted average coupon on SFR loan originations decreased by 5 basis points compared to the linked quarter. The increase in IPL origination rates was primarily attributable to an increase in the origination of nonresidential commercial real estate loans during the current quarter as compared to the linked quarter, which lifted the IPL origination rate by approximately 3 basis points. SFR origination rates declined during the quarter due to competitive pricing pressures.

During the three months ended March 31, 2022, IPL portfolio yields decreased by 8 basis points compared to the linked quarter primarily due to a $551 thousand decrease in fees collected on prepaid loans as well as the prepayment of higher yielding loans being replaced with loans at lower current interest rates. As compared to the linked quarter, IPL prepayment speeds declined to 21.78%, however, they remained elevated relative to historical levels due to customers refinancing their loans to take advantage of lower interest rates.

A 17 basis point decrease in yield on the SFR portfolio during the quarter ended March 31, 2022 compared to the linked quarter was the result of a $449 thousand increase in accelerated loan cost amortization on paid off loans as well as the prepayment of higher yielding loans being replaced with loans at lower current interest rates. Elevated SFR loan portfolio prepayment speeds were generally related to customers refinancing their hybrid-adjustable rate loans to take advantage of lower long-term interest rates.

Asset Quality

Nonperforming assets totaled $2.3 million, or 0.03% of total assets, at both March 31, 2022 and December 31, 2021. Criticized loans, which includes loans graded Special Mention and of greater risk, were $20.7 million at March 31, 2022 compared to $16.7 million at December 31, 2021. Classified loans, which includes loans graded Substandard and of greater risk, totaled $13.8 million and $12.1 million at March 31, 2022 and December 31, 2021, respectively. The increase in criticized and classified loan balances was attributed to isolated credit related downgrades and are not thought to represent any particular declining credit trends in our loan portfolio. As of March 31, 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 March 31, 2022 and December 31, 2021, the Company recorded a reversal of loan loss provisions of $2.5 million and $1.8 million, respectively. The current quarter recapture was related to the reversal of the remaining portion of qualitative reserves established early in the pandemic, while the prior quarter reversal was primarily due to a decline in criticized loans. The decision to recapture the remaining portion of our pandemic related reserve was based on the continued resilience of our loan portfolio, as well as the general strength of the economic recovery. Our allowance for loan losses to total loans was 0.52% at March 31, 2022 compared to 0.56% at December 31, 2021. The allowance for loan losses and the recapture of 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 $101.7 million at March 31, 2022 compared to $77.3 million at December 31, 2021, an increase of $24.3 million, or 31.5%. 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, as well as a $7.8 million increase in the fair value of our swaps due to rising interest rates. The right-of-use asset at quarter end totaled $14.9 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 $5.6 billion at March 31, 2022, an increase of $63.0 million, or 1.1%, from December 31, 2021. Brokered and retail deposits increased $50.2 million and $12.8 million, respectively, from December 31, 2021. During the quarter, the proportion of non-maturity deposits within the portfolio increased to 60.6% compared to 57.8% at December 31, 2021, while our portfolio of time deposits decreased to 39.4% 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 low interest rate environments, as well as our strategic goal of increasing transaction accounts. Our cost of interest bearing deposits was 0.45% during the quarter ended March 31, 2022 compared to 0.48% during the linked quarter. The decrease in our cost of interest bearing deposits compared to the prior quarter was predominantly due to our term deposit portfolio repricing into lower cost products.

FHLB Advances

FHLB advances totaled $751.6 million at both March 31, 2022 and December 31, 2021. At March 31, 2022, the weighted average interest rate and weighted average remaining maturity of FHLB advances outstanding was 1.75% and 2.3 years, respectively, compared to 1.68% and 2.3 years, respectively, at December 31, 2021.

Other Liabilities

Other liabilities totaled $83.4 million at March 31, 2022 compared to $64.4 million at December 31, 2021, an increase of $19.0 million, or 29.4%. The increase primarily relates to an increase in lease liabilities of $15.3 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.

Capital

As of March 31, 2022, the Company was in compliance with all applicable regulatory capital requirements and the Bank qualified as ‘‘well-capitalized’’ for purposes of the FDIC’s prompt corrective action regulations, as summarized in the table below:

Stockholders’ equity totaled $668.0 million, a decrease of $1.1 million, or 0.2%, compared to December 31, 2021. The decrease in stockholders' equity was primarily related to a decline in the fair value of available for sale investment securities, net of tax, of $12.0 million, dividends paid of $6.2 million and stock repurchases of $5.6 million, partially offset by net income of $22.9 million during the three months ended March 31, 2022. Despite this decline, our tangible book value per share increased by $0.05 to $12.93 as a result of a reduction in our outstanding shares during the current quarter.

On April 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 May 16, 2022 to shareholders of record as of May 6, 2022.

Cautionary Statements Regarding Forward-Looking Information

This communication contains a number of forward-looking statements, which involve a number of risks and uncertainties. These forward-looking statements are not historical facts, and are based on current expectations, estimates and projections about our industry, management’s beliefs and certain assumptions made by management, many of which, by their nature, are inherently uncertain and beyond our control. Accordingly, we caution you that any such forward-looking statements are not a guarantee of future performance and that actual results may prove to be materially different from the results expressed or implied by the forward-looking statements due to a number of factors. The ongoing and dynamic nature of the COVID-19 pandemic may adversely affect the Company, our customers, counterparties, employees, and third-party service providers, and the ultimate extent of the impacts on our business, financial position, results of operations, liquidity, and prospects is uncertain. The risks from the COVID-19 pandemic have decreased as the pandemic subsides, however, new variants may continue to impact key macro-economic indicators such as unemployment and GDP. Deterioration in general business and economic conditions resulting from the continuing pandemic, including the tight labor market, supply chain disruptions, inflationary pressures, or turbulence in domestic or global financial markets could adversely affect our revenues and the values of our assets and liabilities, reduce the availability of funding, lead to a tightening of credit, and further increase stock price volatility. In addition, changes to statutes, regulations, or regulatory policies or practices as a result of, or in response to COVID-19, could affect us in substantial and unpredictable ways. Other factors include, without limitation, those listed from time to time in reports that the Company files with the Securities and Exchange Commission, including, but not limited to, the “Risk Factors” and other cautionary statements in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2021 and other reports we file with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission.
