First PacTrust Bancorp, Inc. Announces 4th Quarter And Full Year 2011 Results

First PacTrust Bancorp, Inc. (“Bancorp” or the “Company”) (Nasdaq: BANC), the holding company for Pacific Trust Bank (“the Bank”), announced today results for the full year and the quarter ended December 31, 2011. For the year ended December 31, 2011, the Company reported a net loss of $2.7 million and a net loss to common shareholders of $3.3 million, or ($0.31) per common share. Pre-tax pre-provision earnings adjusted for OREO charges 1 for the year was $9.1 million. For the quarter ended December 31, 2011, the Company reported a net loss of $5.6 million and a net loss to common shareholders of $6.0 million, or ($0.51) per common share. Pre-tax pre-provision earnings 1 adjusted for OREO charges for the quarter was $34 thousand. Total assets increased by $70.1 million, or 7.5%, during the three month period ended December 31, 2011 due largely to more than $107 million of net loan growth which was funded with $74.7 million, or 10.5% growth in new deposits during the fourth quarter.

Total loans increased $83.8 million or 11.9% during the quarter to $787.3 million, compared to linked quarter growth of $24 million. Fourth quarter loan growth was driven by new loans of $107.2 million at an average rate of 5.14%. As noted above, the Company also increased total deposits by 10.5%, while its average total cost of funds on deposits and borrowings declined by 11.7%, to 0.68%. For the full year ended December 31, 2011, total assets rose by $137 million representing a 15% annual growth rate.

The Company recorded a $4.1 million provision for loan losses during the fourth quarter of 2011 in support of the $83.8 million increase in gross loans, additional impairment charges from the Bank’s legacy loan portfolio and supplementation of general allocation reserves to reflect continued uncertainty in the real estate markets and economy As a result, the allowance for loan losses increased by $3.8 million, from $9.0 million, or 1.3% of loans as of September 30, 2011, to $12.8 million, or 1.6% of loans, as of December 31, 2011.

The Company made continued progress in resolving legacy problem assets and reported a $6.4 million, or 22.1%, reduction in total nonperforming assets to $22.5 million as of December 31, 2011 from $28.9 million as of September 30, 2011. As a percentage of total assets, nonperforming assets decreased to 2.3% as of December 31, 2011 from 3.1% as of September 30, 2011. The Company reported $3.0 million of impairment charges on OREO. For the full year, loans delinquent for more than 30 days declined by 64.6% to $18.6 million, or 2.3% of loans as of December 31, 2011, compared to $52.6 million, or 7.6% of loans as of December 31, 2010.

Greg Mitchell, the Company’s Chief Executive Officer, commented, “During the fourth quarter, the Company generated strong organic balance sheet growth and enhanced franchise value through the production of solid volumes of loans and core deposits, while also repositioning the Bank’s investment portfolio by reinvesting in more liquid securities. We are pleased with the progress made during the fourth quarter on resolving problem assets as we continued to aggressively clear long-term delinquencies and troubled assets. With the additional provision for loan losses during the quarter, the Company maintains even stronger levels of loan loss reserves. Finally, we have also completed our transition from the OTS to the OCC.”

FOURTH QUARTER HIGHLIGHTS:

Earnings Fundamentals

Bancorp’s net interest income before provision for loan losses for the fourth quarter 2011 was $7.5 million, essentially flat versus quarter ended September 30, 2011. Net interest margin, however, showed a decrease of twenty-three basis points from 3.61% for the quarter ended September 30, 2011, to 3.38% for the quarter ended December 31, 2011. The Bank’s average cost of funds fell eight basis points from 0.76% for the quarter ended September 30, 2011 to 0.68% for the quarter ended December 31, 2011. The average cost of deposits improved by four basis points falling from 0.71% for the quarter ended September 30, 2011 to 0.67% during the quarter ended December 31, 2011. The improvement in cost of funds was offset by a twenty-eight basis point reduction in the average yield on the Bank’s earnings assets principally due to the decline of 1.46% in the average yield on securities from 4.50% during the third quarter 2011 to 3.04% during the fourth quarter 2011. The decline was due to the rebalancing of the securities portfolio completed at the end of the third quarter 2011. Average loan yields decreased by two basis points from 4.57% for the quarter ended September 30, 2011 to 4.55% for the quarter ended December 31, 2011 and did not reflect the full impact of the loan growth for the quarter as a substantial portion of the new loans were booked in December. The provision for the quarter was $4.1 million, compared to linked quarter provision of $0.8 million. Noninterest income was $0.5 million compared to $2.0 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2011 which included $1.5 million in net gain on sale of investment securities. Noninterest income remained relatively unchanged and was $4.9 million for the years ended December 31, 2011 and 2010. Noninterest expense grew to $11.2 million compared to linked quarter expense of $7.7 million due largely to a $1.4 million increase in REO valuation allowance, $1.2 million increase in personnel costs due to the recording of incentives and bonuses for employees, a change in compensation for Board members and a $0.2 million increase in occupancy costs, among other items. Noninterest expense during the fourth quarter 2011 also included $1.1 million in transaction expenses related to the pending acquisitions of Beach Business Bank and Gateway Business Bank. The net result was loss for the quarter of $5.6 million, which included a $1.3 million valuation allowance on the Company’s deferred tax asset.

Bancorp’s subsidiary, Pacific Trust Bank, reported a net loss of $2.2 million for the fourth quarter. The Bank’s Q4 loss was due largely to the recording of $4.1 million of additional reserves for loan loss in support of the Bank’s lending initiatives, reserves of legacy assets and an increase in general reserves to compensate for higher economic uncertainty. For the year ended December 31, 2011, the Bank reported net income of $2.4 million. The Bank remained well-capitalized reporting fourth quarter Tier-1, Tier-1 Risk Based and Total Risk-Based capital ratios of 13.08%, 17.34% and 18.56% as of December 31, 2011, respectively.

Asset Quality:
  • Total nonperforming assets decreased $6.4 million to $22.5 million as of December 31, 2011 when compared to $28.9 million as of September 30, 2011, or 2.3 % and 3.1% of total assets respectively.
  • Non-performing loans decreased by $552 thousand, to $7.9 million as of December 31, 2011 from $8.3 million as of September 30, 2011, representing 1.0% and 1.2% of gross loans, respectively.
  • OREO decreased $5.9 million to $14.7 million as of December 31, 2011 when compared to $20.6 million as of September 30, 2011, or 1.5% and 2.2% of total assets, respectively.
  • Total classified loans, defined as loans rated Loss, Doubtful or Substandard, increased by $2.7 million, or 9.1%, from $29.8 million as of September 30, 2011, to $32.5 million as of December 31, 2011.
  • Loans delinquent 60 - 89 days decreased $86 thousand during the three months ended December 31, 2011, and declined by $7.4 million, or 74.7%, from $9.9 million as of December 31, 2010 to $2.5 million as of December 31, 2011.
  • The allowance for loan losses increased from $9.0 million, or 1.3% of loans as of September 30, 2011, to $12.8 million, or 1.6% of loans, as of December 31, 2011. The increase in the allowance resulted largely from increased loan production and the establishment of additional specific allowance allocations for performing TDRs and other impaired loans.

Balance sheet and liquidity:
  • Total assets increased by $70.1 million (7.5%) for the three month period ended December 31, 2011.
  • Loans, net of allowance, totaled $776.0 million at December 31, 2011, compared to $696 million at September 30, 2011. Loan originations and purchases during the fourth quarter of 2011 totaled $107.2 million compared to $68.7 million in the third quarter of 2011 as the Bank saw increased production volume from its commercial real estate and residential lending programs during the fourth quarter. The average note rate on new loans funded in the fourth quarter was 5.14%.
  • Securities available-for-sale at December 31, 2011 totaled $101.6 million compared to $64.9 million at September 30, 2011.

Dividend:
  • On March 1, 2012, Bancorp announced a quarterly dividend of $0.12 per common share payable on April 2, 2012 to shareholders of record as of March 12, 2012.

2011 HIGHLIGHTS:

Earnings Fundamentals

Bancorp’s net interest income before the provision for loan losses decreased $1.0 million, or 3.4%, to $29.1 million for the year ended December 31, 2011 from $30.1 million for the year ended December 31, 2010. The Company’s net interest margin declined marginally from 3.67% for the year ended December 31, 2010 to 3.53% for the year ended December 31, 2011. The decline was due to lower average loan balances for the year and the impact of the rebalancing of the Company’s investment portfolio out of impaired private label MBS and into lower yielding more liquid fixed income securities. A provision for loan losses of $5.4 million was recorded for the year ended December 31, 2011 compared to a $9.0 million provision for loan losses recorded for the year ended December 31, 2010. The provision for loan losses for 2011 related to increased general allowance allocations on new commercial real estate loan production and purchased loans and increased allowance for legacy problem loans. Third quarter 2011 noninterest income included $1.5 million gain on sale of investment securities. Noninterest expense increased $9.5 million, or 42.6%, to $31.7 million for the year ended December 31, 2011 compared to $22.2 million for the year ended December 31, 2010. This net increase was primarily due to the payout of change of control benefits to executive officers which increased salaries and employee benefits expense by $1.1 million, an additional $2.9 million increase in other salaries and employee benefits expense, a $2.2 million increase in the valuation allowance for other real estate owned assets, a $1.2 million increase in professional fees, a $934 thousand increase in occupancy expense, a $428 thousand increase in the loss on sale of other real estate owned assets, a $354 thousand increase in other general and administrative expenses and a $245 thousand increase in advertising expenses. Noninterest expense was reduced by a $358 thousand decline in FDIC insurance premiums. The Company’s net result was a loss for the year ended December 31, 2011 of $2.7 million, compared to net income of $2.8 million for the year ended December 31, 2010. 2011 results included a $1.3 million valuation allowance on the Company’s deferred tax asset. As a result of the losses incurred in 2011 and 2009, the Company is in a three-year cumulative pretax loss position at December 31, 2011. This cumulative loss position is considered significant negative evidence in assessing the need to establish a valuation allowance for the DTA. The Company has concluded that there is sufficient positive evidence to overcome this negative evidence. While significant positive evidence is present and provides compelling reasons for not establishing a deferred tax asset valuation allowance, management believes that given the weight of the evidence from the 3-year cumulative loss it is appropriate to establish a $1.3 million valuation allowance as of December 31, 2011.

“For the full year the Company made substantial progress in building a strong community banking franchise in San Diego, Riverside, Orange and Los Angeles counties. The Company successfully deployed capital and reported 15.9% growth in total assets, with assets rising $137.4 million to $999 million at December 31, 2011, compared to $861.2 million as of year-end 2010. The Company reported strong growth in new deposits, with total deposits increasing by $140 million, or 21.7% to $786 million from $646 million as of year-end 2010. In addition, the Bank opened three new retail banking offices in La Jolla, San Marcos and Century City (Los Angeles), California. During 2011, the Bank’s lending team originated more than $157 million in new loans with an average coupon of 5.25%, purchased $58 million of multi-family loans with an average coupon of 4.97% and established loan production facilities in Los Angeles and Orange counties. Strong loan production allowed the Bank to grow despite facing more than $135 million in amortizations and payoffs from the Bank’s legacy portfolio. The Bank’s credit risk profile showed substantial improvement with loans delinquent more than 30 days falling by 64.6% to $18.6 million from $52.6 million as of December 31, 2010. During that same period, non-performing loans declined to $8.7 million, compared to $19.4 million, while non-performing assets declined to $3.4 million, or 2.34% of assets, compared to $26.4 million, or 3.07% of assets at year-end 2010. The Bank also achieved its objective of enhancing its liquidity position and reducing credit risk through a complete restructuring of the Company’s securities portfolio. While these efforts resulted in a modest reduction in the Bank’s net interest margin, we believe they resulted in significant improvements in the quality of the Bank’s earnings while lowering risk. The Company also announced the pending acquisitions of Beach Business Bank and Gateway Business Bank. We expect these transactions to close during the second quarter of 2012, pending receipt of regulatory approvals and the satisfaction of other closing conditions,” said Mr. Mitchell.

Non-GAAP Financial Information:

This presentation contains certain financial information determined by methods other than in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States (“GAAP”). These non-GAAP financial measures include pre-tax pre-provision earnings adjusted for OREO charges.

Pre-tax pre-provision earnings is total revenue less non-interest expense; pre-tax pre-provision earnings, adjusted for OREO charges, is total revenue less the sum of non-interest expense and OREO-valuation allowance and loss on sale of OREO and foreclosure expense. Management believes that these two additional non-GAAP financial measures are useful because it enables investors and others to assess the Company’s ability to generate capital to cover losses through a credit cycle.

Reconciliations of the non-GAAP measures to the comparable GAAP measures are provided below.

The following table presents a reconciliation of pre-tax pre-provision earnings to net income (dollars in thousands):

SELECTED DETAIL ON CHANGES IN LOAN QUALITY AND RISK

Non-performing Loans. The following table is a summary of our nonperforming assets, net of specific valuation allowances. This table does not include all loans on nonaccrual or loans past due over 90 days that are on accrual. The information presented is for December 31, 2011 and December 31, 2010 (dollars in thousands):

Ratios
Nonperforming loans, net of specific valuation allowances, to total gross loans 2.88 % 1.11 %
Nonperforming assets, net of specific valuation allowances, to total assets 3.07 % 2.34 %
    (1)   The Company ceases accruing interest, and therefore classifies as nonperforming, any loan as to which principal or interest has been in default for a period of greater than 90 days, or if repayment in full of interest or principal is not expected. Nonperforming loans exclude loans that have been restructured and remain on accruing status. At December 31, 2011, net nonperforming loans totaled $8.7 million, net of specific valuation allowances of $2.2 million. At December 31, 2010, net nonperforming loans totaled $19.9 million, net of specific valuation allowances of $1.2 million.
 
(2) Increases in nonperforming loans are attributable to loans where we have discontinued the accrual of interest at some point during the period ended December 31, 2011. Increases in other real estate owned represent the value of properties that have been foreclosed upon during the period ended December 31, 2011.
 
(3) Decreases in nonperforming loans are primarily attributable to payments we have collected from borrowers, charge-offs of recorded balances and transfers of balances to real estate owned during the year ended December 31, 2011. Decreases in other real estate owned represent either the sale, disposition or valuation adjustment on properties which had previously been foreclosed upon.

Troubled Debt Restructured Loans (TDRs). As of December 31, 2011 the Company had 26 loans with an aggregate balance of $16.1 million classified as TDR. Specific valuation allowances totaling $2.1 million have been established for these loans. When a loan becomes a TDR the Company ceases accruing interest, and classifies it as non-accrual until the borrower demonstrates that the loan is again performing.

As of December 31, 2011, of the 26 loans classified as TDR, 23 loans totaling $15.2 million are making payments according to their modified terms and are less than 90-days delinquent. Of the aforementioned $15.2 million in TDR loans, $13.3 million in loans are secured by single family residences, $487 thousand in loans are secured by land, $2.7 million are secured by multi-family and the remaining is comprised of an unsecured $2 thousand consumer loan. Of the $15.2 million TDRs, $4.9 million have been paying as agreed for more than six months and are on accrual status while $7.6 million are paying as noted previously but remain on non-accrual. Three TDR loans with an aggregate balance of $915 thousand are over 90 days delinquent. The delinquent TDR loans are comprised of three loans with an aggregate balance of $915 thousand secured by SFRs.
