BETHESDA, Md., April 23, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Eagle Bancorp, Inc. (the "Company") (Nasdaq:EGBN), the parent company of EagleBank, today announced record quarterly net income of $12.5 million for the quarter ended March 31, 2014, an 8% increase over the $11.6 million net income for the quarter ended March 31, 2013. Net income available to common shareholders for the quarter ended March 31, 2014 increased 8% to $12.4 million ($0.48 per basic common share and $0.47 per diluted common share), as compared to $11.4 million ($0.45 per basic common share and $0.44 per diluted common share) for the same period in 2013.

Per share amounts for all prior periods have been adjusted to reflect the 10% stock dividend distributed on June 14, 2013.

"We are pleased to report another quarter of record earnings, together with continued strong and balanced financial performance," noted Ronald D. Paul, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Eagle Bancorp, Inc. "The Company's net income has increased each quarter since the fourth quarter of 2008." Mr. Paul added, "For the first quarter of 2014, the Company's performance was highlighted by growth in total revenue, by growth in both loans and deposit balances, by an expanded net interest margin from an already very favorable level, by a continued trend of lower net charge-offs and by increased levels of activity and revenue from the Bank's SBA lending unit. Additionally, the Company has been able to continue posting an efficiency ratio that compares very favorably to peer banking companies."

For the first quarter of 2014, total loans grew 4% over December 31, 2013, and were 20% higher at March 31, 2014 than March 31, 2013. For the first quarter of 2014, total deposits increased 1% over December 31, 2013, and were 16% higher at March 31, 2014 than March 31, 2013. The net interest margin was 4.45% for the first quarter, 5 basis points higher than the fourth quarter of 2013, and 25 basis points higher than the first quarter of 2013. Mr. Paul added, "The continuing emphasis on disciplined pricing for both new loans and funding sources together with a favorable loan to deposit ratio has resulted in a more favorable net interest margin position at March 31, 2014."

Total revenue (net interest income plus noninterest income) for the first quarter of 2014 was $44.5 million or 4% above the $42.6 million of total revenue earned for the first quarter of 2013 and was 3% above the fourth quarter of 2013 total revenue of $43.0 million.

The Company was able to grow its net interest income for the first quarter of 2014 at a substantial rate of 16%, as compared to the first quarter in 2013 ($40.0 million versus $34.5 million), effectively outpacing lower total noninterest earnings attributable primarily to much lower levels of residential mortgage originations and sales, and achieved 3% growth in net interest income in the first quarter of 2014 as compared to the fourth quarter of 2013 ($40.0 million versus $38.7 million).

For the first quarter of 2014, revenue from residential mortgage banking net interest income and fees was 2.96% of total revenue versus 12.83% of total revenue for the first quarter of 2013. The Company assesses its residential mortgage lending unit on an ongoing basis in light of changes in current and projected market conditions, and adjusts the scope of the unit accordingly. Mr. Paul emphasized that, "The Company continues to focus its activities on generating spread income, while also looking to residential mortgage banking as a component of the Company's ongoing growth. Purchase money residential mortgage activity has been increasing in the Company's market area and Eagle is committed to participating in that improved business activity."

Asset quality measures were very solid at March 31, 2014, in spite of an $11.6 million increase in loans classified as nonperforming. Net charge-offs in both dollars and as percentage of average loans declined for the fifth consecutive quarter, to 0.11% for the first quarter of 2014. The $11.6 million increase in nonperforming loans relates primarily to one large commercial loan relationship totaling $11 million which was placed on nonaccrual in March 2014. The borrower underlying the credit is deceased and the Company has been actively working to finalize collection of the outstanding loan balance. The Company believes it is adequately reserved on this relationship. Taking into account the level and details of nonperforming loans and portfolio delinquencies, lower net charge-off trends and consistent loan loss provisioning resulted in the allowance for loan losses ($42.0 million) ending March 31, 2014 at 1.37% of total loans and 116% of total nonperforming loans as compared to 1.39% of total loans and 166% of nonperforming loans at December 31, 2013, and 1.52% of total loans and 138% of nonperforming loans at March 31, 2013.

Mr. Paul noted that, "For the first quarter of 2014, the Company's operating cost management remained strong." The efficiency ratio of 51.94% reflects management's determined, continuous efforts to control costs while not inhibiting growth or our ability to service our customers. Mr. Paul further noted the favorable level of noninterest expenses to average assets of 2.50%. "We will maintain strict oversight of costs, while retaining an infrastructure that maximizes our ability to not just remain competitive, but to grow."

At March 31, 2014, total assets were $3.80 billion, compared to $3.32 billion at March 31, 2013, a 14% increase, and $3.77 billion at December 31, 2013, a 1% increase. Total loans (excluding loans held for sale) were $3.06 billion at March 31, 2014 compared to $2.55 billion at March 31, 2013, a 20% increase, and $2.95 billion at December 31, 2013, a 4% increase. Total deposits were $3.27 billion at March 31, 2014, compared to deposits of $2.81 billion at March 31, 2013, a 16% increase, and $3.23 billion at December 31, 2013, a 2% increase. Loans held for sale amounted to $21.9 million at March 31, 2014 as compared to $132.7 million at March 31, 2013, an 84% decrease, and to $42.0 million at December 31, 2013, a 48% decline.

The investment portfolio totaled $387.8 million at March 31, 2014, a 22% increase from the $318.4 million balance at March 31, 2013. As compared to December 31, 2013, the investment portfolio at March 31, 2014 increased by $9.7 million, a 3% increase. Total borrowed funds (excluding customer repurchase agreements) were $39.3 million at March 31, 2014, December 31, 2013 and March 31, 2013, respectively.

Total shareholders' equity increased to $410.4 million at March 31, 2014, compared to $361.9 million and $393.9 million at March 31, 2013 and December 31, 2013, respectively, primarily reflecting growth in retained earnings. The Company's capital position remains substantially in excess of regulatory requirements for well capitalized status, with a total risk based capital ratio of 13.04% at March 31, 2014, as compared to a total risk based capital ratio of 12.50% at March 31, 2013 and 13.01% at December 31, 2013. In addition, the tangible common equity ratio (tangible common equity to tangible assets) increased to 9.22% at March 31, 2014, from 9.08% at March 31, 2013 and 8.86% at December 31, 2013.

At March 31, 2014, the Company's nonperforming assets amounted to $45.1 million, representing 1.19% of total assets, compared to $33.9 million nonperforming assets, or 0.90% of total assets at December 31, 2013 and $37.4 million of nonperforming assets, or 1.12% of total assets at March 31, 2013. As noted above, the increase in nonperforming assets in the first quarter of 2014 was due to one large commercial loan relationship ($11.0 million) that was placed on nonaccrual status in March 2014. Collection is being actively pursued and management believes it has fully reserved for any potential loss at March 31, 2014. Management continues to remain attentive to early signs of deterioration in borrowers' financial conditions and is proactive in taking the appropriate steps to mitigate risk. Furthermore, the Company is diligent in placing loans on nonaccrual status and believes, based on its loan portfolio risk analysis, that its allowance for loan losses, at 1.37% of total loans (excluding loans held for sale) at March 31, 2014, is adequate to absorb potential credit losses within the loan portfolio at that date. The allowance for credit losses represented 116% of nonperforming loans at March 31, 2014, as compared to 138% at March 31, 2013 and 166% at December 31, 2013. The decrease in the allowance for credit losses as a percentage of total loans at March 31, 2014, as compared to December 31, 2013 (from 1.39% to 1.37%), is due to substantial loan growth in the first quarter of 2014, and overall improved credit quality in the loan portfolio at March 31, 2014.

For the three months ended March 31, 2014, the Company reported an annualized return on average assets ("ROAA") of 1.36% as compared to 1.39% for the three months ended March 31, 2013. The annualized return on average common equity ("ROAE") for the quarter ended March 31, 2014 was 14.38%, as compared to 15.29% for the quarter ended March 31, 2013. The lower ROAA and ROAE ratios for first quarter of 2014 as compared to 2013 was due primarily to a decrease in the level of noninterest income attributable substantially to lower levels of residential mortgage refinancing activity.

Net interest income increased 16% for the three months ended March 31, 2014 over the same period in 2013, resulting from both growth in average earning assets of 9% and an expanded net interest margin for the three months ended March 31, 2014. The net interest margin was 4.45% as compared to 4.20% for the three months ended March 31, 2013. The Company believes its net interest margin remains favorable compared to peer banking companies and that its disciplined approach to managing its loan portfolio yield to 5.45% for the first quarter of 2014 has been a significant factor in its overall profitability.

The provision for credit losses was $1.9 million for the three months ended March 31, 2014 as compared to $3.4 million for the three months ended March 31, 2013. The lower provisioning in the first quarter of 2014, as compared to the first quarter of 2013, is due to a combination of lower net charge-offs, and overall improved asset quality in the loan portfolio. Net charge-offs of $837 thousand in the first quarter of 2014 represented an annualized 0.11% of average loans, excluding loans held for sale, as compared to $2.0 million or an annualized 0.33% of average loans, excluding loans held for sale, in the first quarter of 2013, a 59% decline. Net charge-offs in the first quarter of 2014 were attributable primarily to construction loans ($544 thousand) and home equity and consumer loans ($224 thousand).

Noninterest income for the three months ended March 31, 2014 decreased to $4.5 million from $8.1 million for the three months ended March 31, 2013, a 45% decrease. This decrease was primarily due to substantially lower gains on the sale of residential mortgage loans of $4.3 million (due to lower origination volume), partially offset by an increase in income from sales of SBA loans of $541 thousand and higher income from Bank Owned Life Insurance of $220 thousand. There were $8 thousand of investment securities gains recorded for the first quarter of 2014, as compared to investment securities gains of $23 thousand for the first quarter of 2013.

The efficiency ratio, which measures the ratio of noninterest expense to total revenue, remained favorable at 51.94% for the first quarter of 2014, as compared to 48.56% for the first quarter of 2013. As a percentage of average assets, total noninterest expense increased slightly to 2.50% for the first quarter of 2014 as compared to 2.49% for the same period in 2013. Noninterest expenses totaled $23.1 million for the three months ended March 31, 2014, as compared to $20.7 million for the three months ended March 31, 2013, a 12% increase. Cost increases for salaries and benefits were $2.4 million, due primarily to officer merit increases and to discretionary bonuses. Premises and equipment expenses were $289 thousand higher, due to costs of additional office space and increases in leasing costs. Legal, accounting and professional fees increased by $201 thousand primarily due to an increase in legal fees. Other operating expenses were lower in the first quarter of 2014 primarily due to a non-recurring expense recorded in the first quarter of 2013.

The financial information which follows provides more detail on the Company's financial performance for the three months ended March 31, 2014 as compared to the three months ended March 31, 2013, as well as providing eight quarters of trend data. Persons wishing additional information should refer to the Company's Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2013 and other reports filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the "SEC").

(1) Per share amounts and the number of outstanding shares have been adjusted to give effect to the 10% common stock dividend distributed on June 14, 2013.

(2) The Company considers the following non-GAAP measurements useful for investors, regulators, management and others to evaluate capital adequacy and to compare against other financial institutions. The table below provides a reconciliation of these non-GAAP financial measures with financial measures defined by GAAP.

Tangible common equity to tangible assets (the "tangible common equity ratio") and tangible book value per common share are non-GAAP financial measures derived from GAAP-based amounts. The Company calculates the tangible common equity ratio by excluding the balance of intangible assets from common shareholders' equity and dividing by tangible assets. The Company calculates tangible book value per common share by dividing tangible common equity by common shares outstanding, as compared to book value per common share, which the Company calculates by dividing common shareholders' equity by common shares outstanding. The Company considers this information important to shareholders' as tangible equity is a measure that is consistent with the calculation of capital for bank regulatory purposes, which excludes intangible assets from the calculation of risk based ratios.
