ANCHORAGE, Alaska, April 22, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Northrim BanCorp, Inc. (Nasdaq:NRIM) ("Northrim") today reported net profits of $2.7 million, or $0.40 per diluted share, for the first quarter of 2014, consistent with earnings in both the fourth and first quarters of 2013. A 6% increase in portfolio loans as compared to the first quarter of the prior year helped to generate a 6% increase in net interest income year-over-year that was offset by a 13% decrease in non-interest income and a 6% increase in other operating expenses over the same period a year ago.
"On the first day of this month, we completed the acquisition of Alaska Pacific Bancshares, Inc. ("Alaska Pacific") in a stock and cash transaction valued at $14.61 million, expanding our franchise into Juneau, Ketchikan and Sitka and bringing a strong contingent of Alaskan bankers to our team," said Marc Langland, Chairman, President and CEO of Northrim Bancorp. We now have 15 branch locations that serve 75% of Alaska's population. We are delighted to welcome the customers and employees of Alaska Pacific to Northrim and look forward to a long and prosperous relationship."
"Our launch of Enroll Alaska, a division of Northrim Benefits Group, gained momentum in the first quarter adding enrollees and establishing a new brand for Northrim throughout the state. In the first quarter of 2014, the number of people enrolled grew to more than 2,200 Alaskans from 800 at the end of 2013. Open enrollment ended on April 1, 2014, but we are still able to enroll Native Alaskans and individuals who have experienced changes in their family circumstances until open enrollment commences again in November," said Joseph Beedle, Northrim Bank's President. "Our investment in Enroll Alaska is helping to further establish Northrim Benefits Group as a leading employee benefits agency in the state, and should contribute increasing revenues in the second quarter of this year."

Alaska Economic Update
According to The Associated General Contractors (AGC) of Alaska "2014 Alaska Construction Spending Forecast" released in February 2014, "construction spending is expected to be $9.2 billion, up 18% from 2013. The oil and gas sector is expected to account for nearly half of the total with $4.3 billion. This is over $1 billion higher than the total for oil and gas last year. Private spending, excluding oil and gas will be about $2 billion, which is slightly higher than 2013, which was $1.9 billion. Public spending will also increase from 2013. It is expected to be $2.9 billion, up from $2.7 billion last year."
In his April 7, 2014 article published in the Anchorage Daily News, Alaskan independent writer Tim Bradner notes that "last year the Legislature passed changes to the state's petroleum tax in Senate Bill 21, and the (oil) companies are now hustling-thanks to new, lower taxes, they say."
Brander continues, "I believe we might soon bend the curve on our production decline. Instead of production dropping 6%, the long-term trend, we might see a 1% decline this year , and if we are lucky, no decline next year. However, voters could repeal the oil tax change in the referendum on the primary election ballot in August. Reinstituting the former oil tax would slow a lot of the new activity, I believe."
"With oil contributing over 90% of our state budget revenues and underpinning one-third of Alaska's economy, we are pleased to see new exploration and development projects under way," said Langland. "We believe the 2013 oil tax legislation is vitally important to the future of Alaska and hope the referendum to repeal this bill will go down to defeat in August."

Review of Operations:
Revenue and Net Interest Income
Total revenues, which include net interest income plus other operating income, were $14.0 million in the first quarter of 2014, down 2% from $14.3 million in the fourth quarter of 2013 and up 2% from $13.7 million in the first quarter of 2013. In the first quarter of 2014, net interest income declined 2% to $11.2 million, compared to $11.5 million in the immediate prior quarter and was up 6% from $10.6 million in the first quarter of 2013. A decrease in earnings from Residential Mortgage, LLC. due to lower mortgage origination volume combined with lower purchased receivable revenue was partially offset by an increase in employee benefit plan income in the first quarter of 2014 as Northrim Benefits Group began recognizing revenue related to the Enroll Alaska participants.
"Our net interest margin improved in the first quarter of 2014 and decreased slightly from a year ago," said Joe Schierhorn, CFO and COO. "With average loan balances up 8% year-over-year and our deposit base continuing to be concentrated in home-grown retail and business accounts, our margin continues to be at the high range of our peers. We expect to continue to see pressure on loan yields, however, as customers refinance into today's lower yield environment." In the first quarter of 2014, Northrim's net interest margin (NIM) was 4.28%, up from 4.24% in the preceding quarter and down 4 basis point from 4.32% in the first quarter a year ago.
Provision for Loan Losses
"Due to the low level of our net loan charge-offs and a decrease in our nonperforming loans, we did not book a provision for loan losses in both the first quarter of 2014 or the fourth quarter of 2013 and only booked a $150,000 provision for loan losses in the first quarter of 2013," said Schierhorn. The allowance for loan losses was 2.10% of portfolio loans at March 31, 2014 compared to 2.11% at the end of 2013 and 2.31% a year ago.
Other Operating Income
Northrim has interests in a number of complementary businesses that provide financial services to businesses and individuals, including purchased receivables financing, health insurance plans, mortgage origination and wealth management. In the first quarter of 2014, total other operating income was down 2% to $2.7 million from $2.8 million in the preceding quarter and down 13% from $3.1 million in the first quarter of 2013. "A reduction in earnings from our mortgage affiliate, Residential Mortgage, and a lower contribution from purchased receivables income contributed to the decrease in operating income," said Schierhorn.
Earnings from Residential Mortgage decreased 218% to a loss of $131,000 in the first quarter of 2014 as compared to income of $111,000 in the fourth quarter of 2013 and decreased 154% as compared to income of $242,000 in the first quarter of 2013. The decrease in earnings from Residential Mortgage compared to both periods was a result of lower mortgage origination volume in the first quarter of 2014.
Purchased receivable income was down 16% to $481,000 in the first quarter of 2014 as compared to income of $570,000 in the fourth quarter of 2013, reflecting the 38% decline in balances during this period due to customer pay downs on their balances in the first quarter of 2014. "We are working to rebuild these balances. In the meantime, we are pleased with the solid contribution this funding program provides to our income," said Beedle.
Employee benefit plan income contributed $876,000 to first quarter 2014 revenues, compared to $599,000 in the preceding quarter and $569,000 in the first quarter of 2013 due to revenue contributions from Enroll Alaska and increased revenue from Northrim Benefits Group's existing book of business. Approximately half of the increase in employee benefit plan income in the first quarter of 2014 is from revenue contributions from Enroll Alaska, and Northrim expects that Enroll Alaska revenues will increase in future quarters.
In the first quarter of this year, service charges were $476,000, down from $503,000 in the preceding quarter and $525,000 in the first quarter a year ago. In the first quarter of 2014, electronic banking income contributed $500,000 to other operating income, a decrease of 8% from the fourth quarter of 2013 and 1% lower from the first quarter of 2013. Gain on sale of securities contributed $97,000 to revenues in the first quarter of 2014, compared to $15,000 in the fourth quarter of 2013 and $218,000 in the first quarter a year ago.
Other income was $435,000 for the first quarter of 2014, compared to $460,000 in the fourth quarter of 2013 and $379,000 in the first quarter of 2013. "While we will not start generating lease income from our headquarters office building that is currently undergoing renovation until later in the year, income from our wealth management subsidiaries is growing and providing increasing contributions to other income," said Beedle.
Other Operating Expenses
Overhead costs declined 4% to $10.3 million in the first quarter of 2014, as compared to $10.7 million in the fourth quarter of 2013, reflecting lower salary and benefit costs, and gains from the sale of other real estate owned which offset the costs associated with the Alaska Pacific merger. In the first quarter a year ago overhead costs were $9.7 million. First quarter 2014 compensation costs decreased 7% to $5.9 million from $6.4 million in the fourth quarter of 2013, and increased 3% from the first quarter a year ago. The increase in compensation costs in the first quarter of 2014 as compared to the first quarter of 2013 was caused in part by compensation costs associated with the start-up of the Enroll Alaska Division of Northrim Benefits Group and an increase in Northrim Bank compensation costs.
Balance Sheet Review
Northrim's assets increased 5% to $1.20 billion at March 31, 2014, compared to $1.15 billion a year ago and decreased 1% from $1.22 from December 31, 2013.
Investment securities totaled $236.2 million at March 31, 2014, compared to $252.8 million at December 31, 2013 and $226.2 million a year ago. At March 31, 2014, the investment portfolio was comprised of 63% U.S. Agency securities (primarily Federal Home Loan Bank and Federal Farm Credit Bank debt), 9% Alaskan municipality, utility, or state agency securities, 22% corporate securities, 5% U.S. treasury securities, and 1% stock in the Federal Home Loan Bank of Seattle. At March 31, 2014, the average estimated duration of the investment portfolio was two years. The investment portfolio generated an average net tax equivalent yield of 1.39% for the first quarter of 2014.
Portfolio loans grew 6% to $763.1 million at March 31, 2014, as compared to $721.6 million a year ago and decreased 1% as compared to $770.0 million at December 31, 2013. Growth in commercial real estate and construction loans contributed to a majority of the increase to the portfolio in the first quarter of 2014 as compared to a year ago. Average portfolio loan balances increased 1% in the quarter and 8% during the past twelve months to $770.3 million.
"Loan totals decreased slightly in the first quarter of this year as compared to year-end 2013, due to lower seasonal demand and payoffs of commercial and commercial real estate loans," Beedle noted. "We have a strong pipeline of loans in process that we expect to provide loan growth in future quarters," said Beedle. Commercial loans were down 2% in the quarter ended March 31, 2014, but grew 2% year-over-year to $294.0 million and accounted for 39% of portfolio loans at March 31, 2014, compared to $300.3 million three months earlier and $289.4 million a year ago. Commercial real estate loans, of which 21% are owner occupied, totaled $374.4 million and accounted for 49% of portfolio loans at March 31, 2014, compared to a total of $376.4 million at December 31, 2013, and $347.9 million at March 31, 2013. Construction and land development loans increased 2% in the quarter and 21% year-over year to $64.0 million and accounted for 8% of portfolio loans at March 31, 2014, compared to $62.8 million at December 31, 2013 and $52.8 million at March 31, 2013.
Loans held for sale increased to $14.3 million at the end of the first quarter of 2014, from $11.3 million at December 31, 2013 and up from $11.5 million a year ago. The average balance for the quarter for loans held for sale fell to $6.6 million at March 31, 2014, compared to $8.6 million at December 31, 2013 and $6.7 million a year ago, primarily reflecting the overall decline in the mortgage refinance market. Northrim purchases these loans from its mortgage affiliate and sells them into the secondary market on pre-arranged commitments.
The mix of deposits continued to show growth in core deposits and a decrease in time deposits. Balances in transaction accounts at March 31, 2014, represented 91.4% of total deposits, up from 90.3% a year ago. At March 31, 2014, total deposits were $997.8 million, up 4% from $954.9 million a year ago and down 1% compared to $1.004 billion at December 31, 2013.
At March 31, 2014, noninterest-bearing demand deposits increased 3% from a year ago, and interest-bearing demand deposits declined 1% over the same period. At the end of the first quarter of 2014, money market and savings account balances were up 13% and 7%, respectively, from year-ago levels, while the Alaska CD (a flexible certificate of deposit program) balances increased 10% year-over-year. Time deposit balances at March 31, 2014, fell 7% compared to March 31, 2013. At March 31, 2014, noninterest-bearing demand deposits accounted for 36% of total deposits, interest-bearing demand accounts were 14%, savings deposits were 10%, money market balances accounted for 20%, the Alaska CD accounted for 11%, and time certificates were 9% of total deposits.
Shareholders' equity increased 6% to $145.9 million, or $22.32 per share, at March 31, 2014, compared to $138.1 million, or $21.20 per share, a year ago. At December 31, 2013, shareholders' equity was $144.3 million, or $22.07 per share. Tangible book value per share was $21.11 at March 31, 2014, compared to $19.96 per share a year ago and $20.86 per share at December 31, 2013. Northrim remains well-capitalized with Tier 1 Capital to Risk Adjusted Assets of 15.75% at March 31, 2014.
The ratio of nonperforming assets ("NPAs") to total assets was 0.37% at March 31, 2014, an increase from 0.35% three months earlier and down from 0.77% a year ago. NPAs were $4.4 million at March 31, 2014, compared to $4.2 million in the preceding quarter and $8.9 million a year ago.
Nonperforming loans ("NPLs") decreased to 0.13% of portfolio loans from 0.24% in the preceding quarter and 0.61% a year ago. NPLs decreased to $1.0 million at March 31, 2014, as compared to $1.8 million at December 31, 2013 and $4.4 million a year ago. Other real estate owned (OREO) was $3.4 million at the end of the first quarter of 2014, compared to $2.4 million in the preceding quarter and $4.5 million at the end of the first quarter of 2013.
Loans measured for impairment totaled $6.0 million at March 31, 2014, compared to $8.8 million at December 31, 2013, and $11.6 million in the first quarter a year ago.
At March 31, 2014, there were no restructured loans included in nonaccrual loans, as compared to $1.3 million at December 31, 2013, and $3.3 million at March 31, 2013. At March 31, 2014, Northrim held $4.8 million in performing restructured loans that were not included in nonaccrual loans, as compared to $6.6 million at December 31, 2013, and $6.6 million at March 31, 2013. "Borrowers who are in financial difficulty and who have been granted concessions that may include interest rate reductions, term extensions, or payment alterations are categorized as restructured loans," said Schierhorn. "We present restructured loans that are performing separately from those that are in nonaccrual to provide more information on this category of loans and to differentiate between accruing performing and nonperforming restructured loans."
The coverage ratio of the allowance for loan losses to nonperforming loans increased to 1605% at March 31, 2014, compared to 897% three months earlier, and 378% a year ago. The allowance for loan losses decreased to $16.0 million at March 31, 2014, compared to $16.3 million at the end of the preceding quarter and $16.6 million a year ago.
