Heritage Commerce Corp Earnings Increased 28% To $2.7 Million In The Second Quarter Of 2012 Compared To Second Quarter Of 2011

Heritage Commerce Corp (Nasdaq:HTBK), the holding company (“the Company” or “HCC”) for Heritage Bank of Commerce (“the Bank” or “HBC”), today reported net income increased 28% to $2.7 million for the second quarter of 2012, compared to $2.1 million for the second quarter of 2011. Loan and deposit growth and continued improvements in asset quality contributed to solid profitability in the second quarter and in the first six months of 2012.

Following the redemption of its Series A Preferred Stock in the first quarter of 2012, the Company does not have any preferred dividends and discount accretion on preferred stock in the second quarter of 2012. Net income available to common shareholders was $2.7 million, or $0.08 per average diluted common share, for the second quarter of 2012. After accrued dividends and discount accretion on preferred stock of $604,000, net income available to common shareholders was $1.5 million, or $0.05 per average diluted common share, for the second quarter a year ago. For the six months ended June 30, 2012, net income available to common shareholders was $3.5 million, or $0.11 per average diluted common share, up from $2.5 million, or $0.08 per average diluted common share, for the same period a year ago. All results are unaudited.

“The Company experienced significant loan growth and continued deposit growth during the second quarter of 2012,” said Walter Kaczmarek, President and Chief Executive Officer. “The growth we experienced was due to hard work performed in previous quarters by our lending staff that finally closed and funded. Our second quarter income marks our eighth consecutive quarter of profitability. Despite our strong second quarter success, we continue to be concerned about the potentially negative effects of the weak national and international economies.”

Operating Results

Net interest income increased 5% to $12.1 million for the second quarter of 2012, compared to $11.5 million for the second quarter a year ago, primarily due to an increase in the average balance of investment securities. Net interest income for the second quarter of 2012 decreased 1% from $12.3 million for the first quarter of 2012, primarily as a result of lower yields on loans and investment securities, partially offset by higher average balances of loans and investment securities.

For the six months ended June 30, 2012, net interest income grew 7% to $24.3 million, compared to $22.7 million for the six months ended June 30, 2011, primarily due to an increase in the average balance of investment securities, and a decrease in the rates paid on interest-bearing liabilities, partially offset by a decrease in the average balance of loans.

The net interest margin remained flat at 3.95% for the second quarter of 2012, compared to 3.95% for the second quarter a year ago, and decreased 11 basis points compared to 4.06% for the first quarter of 2012, primarily as a result of lower yields on loans and investment securities. For the first six months of 2012, the net interest margin increased to 4.01%, compared to 3.95% for the first six months of 2011, primarily as a result of a higher yield on loans, a lower level of interest-bearing deposits in other institutions, and a lower cost of deposits.

The provision for loan losses was $815,000 for the second quarter of 2012, compared to $955,000 for the second quarter a year ago and $100,000 for the first quarter of 2012. The provision for loan losses was $915,000 for the six months ended June 30, 2012 compared to $1.7 million for the same period a year ago.

Noninterest income was $2.1 million for the second quarter of 2012, compared to $2.2 million for the second quarter a year ago, and $1.7 million for the first quarter of 2012. Noninterest income increased for the second quarter of 2012, compared to the first quarter of 2012, primarily due to a higher gain on sales of SBA loans. In the first six months of 2012, noninterest income was $3.8 million, compared to $4.1 million in the first six months a year ago. Noninterest income was lower in the second quarter and first six months of 2012, compared to the same periods in 2011, primarily due to a lower gain on sales of SBA loans.

Noninterest expense for the second quarter of 2012 remained flat at $9.5 million, compared to the second quarter of 2011, and decreased $1.4 million, or 13%, from $10.9 million for the first quarter of 2012. In the second quarter of 2012, salaries and employee benefits expense decreased $290,000 from the first quarter of 2012, due to the seasonal decline, which was consistent with the Company’s cyclical salary and employee benefits expense in prior years. Professional fees decreased $741,000 in the second quarter of 2012, compared to the first quarter of 2012 due to the seasonality of expenses related to the year-end audit and a first quarter $500,000 accrual for probable costs related to an anticipated legal claim that has not yet been asserted, regarding an apparent transfer of funds for personal use by an authorized signatory of a customer. Other operating expenses decreased $312,000 in the second quarter of 2012, compared to the first quarter of 2012, primarily as a result of several one-time expenses in the first quarter that the Company did not incur in the second quarter. Noninterest expense in the first six months of 2012 increased 2% to $20.3 million, compared to $19.9 million in the first six months of 2011.

Income tax expense for the second quarter of 2012 was $1.2 million, compared to $1.1 million for the second quarter of 2011, and $951,000 for the first quarter of 2012. For the first six months of 2012, the income tax expense was $2.2 million, compared to $1.5 million for the first six months a year ago.

Balance Sheet Review, Capital Management and Credit Quality

Heritage Commerce Corp’s total assets increased 5% to $1.32 billion at June 30, 2012, from $1.26 billion a year ago, and increased 1% from $1.31 billion at March 31, 2012.

The investment securities portfolio totaled $389.8 million at June 30, 2012, an increase of 29% from $303.0 million at June 30, 2011, and increased 1% from $385.8 million at March 31, 2012. At June 30, 2012, the investment portfolio was comprised of $325.9 million agency mortgage-backed securities, all of which were issued by U.S. Government sponsored entities, $23.2 million of corporate bonds, and $40.7 million of single entity issue trust preferred securities.

Loans, excluding loans held-for-sale, totaled $798.1 million at June 30, 2012, an increase of 2% from $782.1 million at June 30, 2011, and an increase of 5% from $756.9 million at March 31, 2012. The loan portfolio remains well-diversified with commercial and industrial (“C&I”) loans accounting for 48% of the portfolio at June 30, 2012. Commercial and residential real estate loans accounted for 42% of the total loan portfolio, of which 51% were owner-occupied by businesses. Land and construction loans account for 2% of the loan portfolio at June 30, 2012, compared to 5% at June 30, 2011 and 3% of the total loan portfolio at March 31, 2012. Consumer and home equity loans accounted for the remaining 8% of total loans at June 30, 2012.

The yield on the loan portfolio was 5.23% for the second quarter of 2012, compared to 5.31% for the same period in 2011, and 5.41% for the first quarter of 2012. The 18 basis points decrease in the second quarter of 2012 from the first quarter of 2012 was due to several positive adjustments in the first quarter of 2012 from loan interest recoveries, and lower rates issued (due to competitive factors) on some new and renewed loans in the second quarter of 2012.

“In the second quarter of 2012, we experienced an increase in loans, and as a result we deployed more liquidity toward loans as demand from credit worthy customers improved,” added Mr. Kaczmarek.

Nonperforming assets declined $5.3 million to $17.8 million, or 1.35% of total assets, at June 30, 2012, from $23.1 million, or 1.83% of total assets a year ago. At March 31, 2012, nonperforming assets totaled $19.5 million or 1.49% of total assets. The following is a breakout of nonperforming assets at June 30, 2012:
          Balance         % of Total
Commercial and industrial loans $ 4,910 28 %

The total cost of deposits decreased 15 basis points to 0.27% during the second quarter of 2012, from 0.42% during the second quarter of 2011, and remained flat compared to the first quarter of 2012, primarily as a result of maturing higher-cost wholesale funding and higher core deposits.

Due primarily to the $40 million repurchase of the Series A Preferred Stock during the first quarter of 2012, tangible equity was $162.4 million at June 30, 2012, compared to $184.7 million at June 30, 2011. Tangible equity was $157.5 million at March 31, 2012. Tangible book value per common share was $5.44 at June 30, 2012, compared to $4.81 a year ago, and $5.25 at March 31, 2012.

Redemption of Subordinated Debt

The Company has provided notice to the holders that the it intends to redeem the Company’s 10.875% fixed-rate subordinated debentures in the amount of $7 million issued to Heritage Capital Trust I, and the related premium cost of $304,500, and the Company’s 10.600% fixed-rate subordinated debentures in the amount of $7 million issued to Heritage Statutory Trust I, and the related premium cost of $296,800 (collectively referred to as the “Fixed-Rate Sub Debt”). The redemption of the 10.600% fixed-rate subordinated debentures is expected to be completed on September 7, 2012, and the 10.875% fixed-rate subordinated debentures on September 8, 2012. Additionally, the Company will pay its regularly scheduled interest payments on the Fixed-Rate Sub Debt totaling approximately $752,000 on the respective redemption dates. The Company will use available cash and proceeds from a $15 million distribution from HBC to HCC. The Company will incur a charge of $601,300 in the third quarter of 2012, for the early payoff premiums on the redemption of the Fixed-Rate Sub Debt. On an annual basis, the redemption of the Fixed-Rate Sub Debt will eliminate approximately $1.5 million in interest expense.
