Pinnacle Financial Reports Diluted EPS Of $0.23 For The Second Quarter Of 2012, Up 64 Percent Over Same Quarter Last Year

Pinnacle Financial Partners, Inc. (Nasdaq/NGS: PNFP) today reported that its net income per fully diluted common share available to common stockholders was $0.23 for the quarter ended June 30, 2012, compared to net income per fully diluted common share available to common stockholders of $0.14 for the quarter ended June 30, 2011, an increase of 64.0 percent. Net income per fully diluted common share available to common stockholders was $0.44 for the six months ended June 30, 2012, compared to net income per fully diluted common share available to common stockholders of $0.20 for the six months ended June 30, 2011, an increase of 120.0 percent.

As a result of the TARP preferred stock redemption that occurred during the quarter, second quarter and year-to-date results include the accretion of the remaining preferred stock discount. This resulted in a one-time, non-cash charge to net income available to common stockholders of approximately $1.7 million during the quarter.

“Despite the industry headwinds, we continued to accelerate loan and core deposit growth as well as expand our net interest margin during the second quarter,” said M. Terry Turner, Pinnacle’s president and chief executive officer. “Perhaps more importantly, we also continued to build lending pipelines, and we expect continued loan growth during the third quarter.”

Building the Core Earnings Capacity of the Firm
  • Loans at June 30, 2012, were $3.44 billion, an increase of $106.8 million from March 31, 2012. Commercial and industrial loans plus owner-occupied commercial real estate loans were $1.83 billion at June 30, 2012, an increase of $57.8 million from March 31, 2012, and the eighth consecutive quarter of net growth. Loans have increased $153.3 million since Dec. 31, 2011, an annualized growth rate of 9.3 percent.
  • Since expanding to Knoxville in the summer of 2007, Pinnacle has continued its strong growth in that market. The Knoxville footprint reached $577.9 million in loans at the end of the second quarter of 2012, up from $544.4 million at March 31, 2012, or 6.2 percent.
  • Average balances of noninterest bearing deposit accounts were $755.6 million in the second quarter of 2012, up 7.7 percent over first quarter 2012 and 20.1 percent over the same quarter last year.
  • Revenue for the quarter ended June 30, 2012, amounted to $50.1 million, compared to $47.6 million for the same quarter of last year, an increase of 5.2 percent.
  • Net interest margin increased to 3.76 percent for the quarter ended June 30, 2012, up from 3.74 percent last quarter and from 3.55 percent for the quarter ended June 30, 2011.
  • Pre-tax pre-provision income was $16.2 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2012, up $2.5 million from last quarter and $2.9 million from the same quarter last year. Pre-tax pre-provision income was up 18.7 percent over last quarter and 22.1 percent over the same quarter last year.

“The growth in our loan and deposit volume is a foundational building block for our ongoing revenue and earnings growth,” Turner said. “The success we are having in the Knoxville market is similar to the early-stage growth we experienced in Nashville and now accounts for a meaningful part of the firm’s loan growth.”

Aggressively Dealing with Credit Issues

  • The allowance for loan losses represented 2.02 percent of total loans at June 30, 2012, compared to 2.14 percent at March 31, 2012, and 2.40 percent at June 30, 2011.
    • Net charge-offs were $2.4 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2012, compared to $8.6 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2011, and $3.6 million for the first quarter of 2012.
    • Provision for loan losses expense decreased from $6.6 million for the second quarter of 2011 to $0.6 million for the second quarter of 2012. The results reflect the overall improvement in the credit quality of the loan portfolio compared to the same period in 2011 and the reduction in net charge-offs.
  • Nonperforming assets declined by $10.6 million from March 31, 2012, a linked-quarter reduction of 13.8 percent and the eighth consecutive quarterly reduction.
    • Nonperforming assets were 1.91 percent of total loans plus other real estate at June 30, 2012, compared to 2.28 percent at March 31, 2012, and 3.44 percent at June 30, 2011. Pinnacle resolved $22.5 million in nonperforming assets during the second quarter of 2012, compared to resolutions of $25.3 million during the first quarter of 2012.
    • Nonperforming loans declined by $2.0 million during the second quarter of 2012, a linked-quarter reduction of 4.7 percent and the ninth consecutive quarterly reduction. Nonperforming loans are down 31.7 percent from June 30, 2011. Nonperforming loan inflows were $11.9 million during the second quarter of 2012, a linked-quarter decrease of 16.0 percent. Nonperforming loan inflows were also down 31.7 percent from the second quarter a year ago.
    • The ratio of the allowance for loan losses to nonperforming loans increased to 170.5 percent at June 30, 2012, from 166.6 percent at March 31, 2012, and 128.9 percent at June 30, 2011.
    • Other real estate also declined by 25.2 percent or $8.6 million during the second quarter of 2012, inclusive of $2.5 million in property foreclosures.
  • Troubled debt restructurings increased by $3.8 million between March 31, 2012 and June 30, 2012, primarily due to two commercial real estate projects.
  • Potential problem loans, which are classified loans that continue to accrue interest, declined by $6.6 million from March 31, 2012, a linked-quarter reduction of 5.6 percent. Potential problem loans are down from $148.5 million at June 30, 2011, to $110.6 million at June 30, 2012, a decrease of 25.5 percent. Potential problem loans are down by 65.2 percent from their peak in June 2010.
  • Net charge-offs for the quarter ended June 30, 2012, were $2.4 million, an annualized net charge-off rate of 0.28 percent. Annualized net charge-offs year-to-date through June 30, 2012, were 0.36 percent, compared to an annualized rate of 1.14 percent for the same period in the prior year.

“One of our primary priorities for the last three years has been to rehabilitate the balance sheet and return to normalized credit metrics,” Turner said. “With an annualized net charge-off rate of 0.28 percent and the ratio of nonperforming assets to total loans plus OREO of less than 2.0 percent, we continued our forward progress during the second quarter.”

OTHER SECOND QUARTER 2012 HIGHLIGHTS:
  • Improving Balance Sheet Composition
    • The firm has continued to reposition its deposit base so that average balances for noninterest-bearing demand, interest checking, savings and money market accounts increased to $3.06 billion for the second quarter of 2012 from $2.91 billion for the first quarter of 2012, or 2.4 percent on a linked-quarter basis. Average balances for higher-cost time deposits decreased from $689 million to $655 million, or 5.0 percent, during the same time period. In comparison to the prior year’s quarter, average balances for noninterest-bearing demand, interest checking, savings and money market accounts increased 5.8 percent, while average balances for higher-cost time deposits decreased 27.6 percent.
    • As a result of the current bond market and growing loan demand, the firm has reduced the size of its investment portfolio by $107 million since the beginning of 2012, primarily through bond maturities and calls.
    • At June 30, 2012, Pinnacle’s ratio of tangible common stockholders’ equity to tangible assets was 8.7 percent, compared to 7.7 percent at June 30, 2011, and 8.8 percent at March 31, 2012.
    • At June 30, 2012, Pinnacle’s total risk-based capital ratio was 13.5 percent, compared to 15.5 percent at June 30, 2011, and 15.4 percent at March 31, 2012. The reduction in this ratio was primarily attributable to the firm’s recent redemption of all of the remaining outstanding preferred shares issued in connection with its participation in the U.S. Treasury’s TARP capital purchase program (CPP).

“During the second quarter of 2012, we redeemed all of the remaining outstanding preferred shares previously issued to the U.S. Treasury,” said Harold R. Carpenter, Pinnacle’s chief financial officer. “This redemption, and our subsequent agreement with the Treasury to repurchase the accompanying common stock warrants during the third quarter of 2012, will officially end our participation in the CPP. As we had anticipated, we were able to redeem our remaining outstanding TARP preferred shares with no incremental common share dilution using a combination of available cash and borrowings under a new $25 million credit facility.”
  • Operating results
    • Net income available to common stockholders for the second quarter of 2012 was $7.8 million, compared to the prior year’s second quarter net income available to common stockholders of $4.8 million. First quarter 2012 net income available to common stockholders totaled $7.2 million.
    • Net interest income for the quarter ended June 30, 2012, was $40.2 million, compared to $39.5 million in the first quarter of 2012. Net interest income for the second quarter of 2011 was $37.8 million. Net interest income for the second quarter of 2012 was at its highest quarterly level since the firm’s founding.
    • Noninterest income for the quarter ended June 30, 2012, was $9.9 million, compared to $9.9 million for the first quarter of 2012 and $9.8 million for the same quarter last year. Excluding the impact of net securities gains, noninterest income was up 6.7 percent over the same quarter last year.

      • Wealth management revenues, which include investment services, trust services and insurance, were $3.5 million during the second quarter of 2012, an increase of 3.2 percent over the same period last year. The increase was due primarily to additional emphasis on internal referral programs and the addition of several new associates over the past two years.
      • Gains on mortgage loans sold, net of commissions, were $1.5 million during the second quarter of 2012, compared to $1.5 million during the first quarter of 2012 and $0.8 million during the second quarter of 2011.

“Our second quarter 2012 net interest margin increased modestly to 3.76 percent,” Carpenter said. “Much of our margin expansion in recent quarters has been largely attributable to reductions in our cost of funds. We continue to believe we have additional opportunities to reduce our funding costs in future quarters. However, like others in our industry, we are experiencing continued pressure on our loan yields, and we expect expansion in our net interest margin will be challenging going forward. Nevertheless, we expect that loan growth should positively influence our net interest income results over the next several quarters and result in further revenue growth this year.”
  • Noninterest and income tax expense
    • Noninterest expense for the quarter ended June 30, 2012, was $33.9 million, compared to $34.4 million in the second quarter of 2011 and $35.8 million in the first quarter of 2012.
    • Included in noninterest expense for the second quarter of 2012 was $3.1 million in other real estate expenses, compared to $3.8 million in the second quarter of 2011 and $4.7 million in the first quarter of 2012.
    • Income tax expense was $5.1 million for the second quarter of 2012, compared to $288,000 in the second quarter of 2011. The projected effective tax rate for 2012 is approximately 33 percent.

Included in the other real estate expense for the quarter was $2.4 million of additional write downs of existing OREO balances based on updated appraisals. The firm also recorded $399,000 in net losses related to the disposition of $11.1 million of other real estate. Noninterest expense excluding the impact of OREO expenses was approximately $30.8 million in the second quarter of 2012, compared to $31.1 million in the first quarter of 2012 and $30.5 million in the second quarter of 2011.

Salaries and employee benefits costs declined in the second quarter of 2012 from the first quarter of 2012 primarily due to the anticipated reduction in various benefits-related charges. Carpenter noted that he anticipates the quarterly expense run rate for the remaining two quarters of 2012 to remain fairly consistent with that of the second quarter.

SELECTED QUARTERLY FINANCIAL DATA – UNAUDITED
 
 

1.

Ratios are presented on an annualized basis.

2.

Net interest margin is the result of net interest income on a tax equivalent basis divided by average interest earning assets.

3.

Total revenue is equal to the sum of net interest income and noninterest income.

4.

Efficiency ratios are calculated by dividing noninterest expense by the sum of net interest income and noninterest income.

5.

Troubled debt restructurings include loans where the company, as a result of the borrower’s financial difficulties, has granted a credit concession to the borrower (i.e., interest only payments for a significant period of time, extending the maturity of the loan, etc.). All of these loans continue to accrue interest at the contractual rate.

6.

Average risk ratings are based on an internal loan review system which assigns a numeric value of 1 to 10 to all loans to commercial entities based on their underlying risk characteristics as of the end of each quarter. A “1” risk rating is assigned to credits that exhibit Excellent risk characteristics, “2” exhibit Very Good risk characteristics, “3” Good, “4” Satisfactory, “5” Acceptable or Average, “6” Watch List, “7” Criticized, “8” Classified or Substandard, “9” Doubtful and “10” Loss (which are charged-off immediately). Additionally, loans rated “8” or worse that are not nonperforming or restructured loans are considered potential problem loans. Generally, consumer loans are not subjected to internal risk ratings.

7.

Annualized net loan charge-offs to average loans ratios are computed by annualizing year-to-date net loan charge-offs and dividing the result by average loans for the year-to-date period.

8.

Capital ratios are for Pinnacle Financial Partners, Inc. and are defined as follows:
Equity to total assets – End of period total stockholders’ equity as a percentage of end of period assets.
Leverage – Tier one capital (pursuant to risk-based capital guidelines) as a percentage of adjusted average assets.
Tier one risk-based – Tier one capital (pursuant to risk-based capital guidelines) as a percentage of total risk-weighted assets.
Total risk-based – Total capital (pursuant to risk-based capital guidelines) as a percentage of total risk-weighted assets.

9.

Book value per share computed by dividing total stockholders’ equity less preferred stock and common stock warrants by common shares outstanding.

10.

Amounts are included in the statement of operations in “Gains on loans sold, net”, net of commissions paid on such amounts.

11.

At fair value, based on information obtained from Pinnacle’s third party broker/dealer for non-FDIC insured financial products and services.

12.

Floating rate loans are those loans that are eligible for repricing on a daily basis subject to changes in Pinnacle’s prime lending rate or other factors.

13.

Core deposits include all transaction deposit accounts, money market and savings accounts and all certificates of deposit issued in a denomination of less than $250,000. The ratio noted above represents total core deposits divided by total funding, which includes total deposits, FHLB advances, securities sold under agreements to repurchase, subordinated indebtedness and all other interest-bearing liabilities.

14.

Associate retention rate is computed by dividing the number of associates employed at quarter-end less the number of associates that have resigned in the last 12 months by the number of associates employed at quarter-end.

15.

Employment and unemployment data is from the US Dept. of Labor Bureau of Labor Statistics. Labor force data is not seasonally adjusted. The most recent quarter data presented is as of the most recent month that data is available as of the release date. The Nashville home data is from the Greater Nashville Association of Realtors.

16.

Adjusted pre-tax, pre-provision income excludes the impact of net gains (losses) on investment security sales as well as other real estate owned expenses.

17.
