Hanmi Reports 2014 Full-Year Financial Results

Full-Year Net Income of $49.8 Million, Up 24.8% Year-Over-Year

Loan Portfolio Increases to $2.74 Billion, Up 25.7% Year-Over-Year

Integration of Central Bancorp, Inc. Remains on Track

LOS ANGELES, Feb. 5, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Hanmi Financial Corporation (Nasdaq:HAFC) (or "Hanmi"), the holding company for Hanmi Bank (the "Bank"), today reported solid growth in 2014. For the full year 2014, net income increased 24.8% to $49.8 million, or $1.56 per diluted share, compared to $39.9 million, or $1.26 per diluted share a year ago. In 2014, pretax income from continuing operations grew 16.1% to $72.6 million from $62.5 million in 2013.

Hanmi's acquisition of Central Bancorp, Inc. ("CBI"), the parent company of United Central Bank, was completed on August 31, 2014. The combined companies began operating as Hanmi Financial Corporation and Hanmi Bank, respectively, with banking operations conducted under the Hanmi Bank brand effective as of September 1, 2014. The 2014 financial results reflect eight months of stand-alone operations of Hanmi and four months of combined operations. Hanmi's accounting for this business combination is incomplete and has been recorded based on provisional amounts. The accounting is updated during the measurement period to reflect new information obtained about facts and circumstances that existed at the acquisition date. Adjustments to the provisional amounts during the measurement period are recognized as retrospective adjustments as of the date of the acquisition. During the fourth quarter Hanmi identified a retrospective adjustment of $8.0 million to the bargain purchase gain that was provisionally reported for the third quarter of 2014. This retrospective adjustment revises the reported third quarter net income to $21.2 million from $13.3 million as previously reported.

Fourth quarter 2014 net income totaled $6.5 million, or $0.20 per diluted share, compared $21.2 million, or $0.66 per diluted share, in the third quarter of 2014 and $9.9 million, or $0.31 per diluted share, in the fourth quarter a year ago.

Full year financial results reflect the impact of the following significant items recorded in conjunction with the CBI acquisition:

  • $14.6 million provisional bargain purchase gain recorded in 2014
  • $6.6 million in merger and integration related expenses in 2014
  • $7.6 million in professional fees for the year, which included significant costs to strengthen Hanmi's infrastructure and to meet heightened control standards

Mr. C. G. Kum, President and Chief Executive Officer, said, "2014 was a transformative year for Hanmi highlighted by the acquisition of CBI, strong loan growth and solid credit quality to help continue the growth trajectory across our enterprise. Full year profitability increased sharply with net income of $49.8 million, up 24.8% from 2013. Strong organic loan production from the legacy Hanmi team helped expand our loan portfolio by 25.7% to $2.74 billion at year end. Credit quality improved throughout the year with classified loans, excluding PCI loans, declining 42.0% during the year to $47.7 million, or 1.71% of gross loans at year end. Importantly, our activities to integrate the acquisition of CBI into Hanmi are proceeding as planned."

Results of Operations

Full year net interest income before provision for credit losses improved 16.2% to $122.7 million compared to $105.6 million for the full year 2013.

Net interest margin for 2014 was 3.88% compared to 3.94% in 2013. The decrease was primarily due to declining market interest rates partially offset by the impact of acquisition accounting adjustments. The following table details the asset yields, liability costs, spread and margin.

For the full year in 2014, net interest income, after provision for credit losses, increased 22.0% to $128.8 million, compared to $105.6 million in 2013. Hanmi recorded a negative loan loss provision totaling $6.1 million during 2014 and no loan loss provisions in the prior year.

Noninterest income was $42.3 million in 2014, compared to $27.9 million in the preceding year. In 2014, Hanmi provisionally recorded a bargain purchase gain of $14.6 million associated with the acquisition of CBI. Service charges on deposit accounts were $11.4 million in 2014, compared to $11.3 million in the preceding year. Gains on sales of SBA loans were $3.5 million in 2014, compared to $8.0 million a year ago. Disposition gains on PCI loans were $1.4 million in 2014, compared to no disposition gains in the prior year. Other operating income increased to $3.6 million in 2014, compared to $2.5 million in the preceding year. The increase in other operating income for 2014 compared to the prior year was primarily due to an $807,000 nonrecurring gain on the early termination of CBI's retirement plan in 2014.

Noninterest expense increased 38.8% to $98.6 million in 2014, compared to $71.0 million a year ago. Salary and employee benefits costs increased 42.8% to $50.2 million in 2014, compared to $35.1 million in 2013. Merger and integration costs increased to $6.6 million in 2014, compared to $730,000 in 2013. Professional fees increased to $7.6 million in 2014, compared to $5.3 million in the preceding year primarily due to significant costs to strengthen the Company's infrastructure and to meet heightened control standards.

Hanmi recorded a provision for income taxes of $22.9 million in 2014, representing an effective tax rate of 31.5%, compared to $22.8 million and an effective rate of 36.4% in 2013. The year-over-year reduction in tax rate can be attributed to the bargain purchase gain (excluding this gain and transaction costs, an effective tax rate for 2014 would be 39.4%).

"We continue to make good progress on our ongoing initiatives to improve operating efficiencies. As part of the CBI acquisition integration, we are closing three legacy CBI branches this month and finalizing the process of right-sizing personnel. We look forward to completing the integration process as quickly as possible to realize the strategic value of the combined bank," said Kum.

The allowance for loan losses totaled $52.7 million as of December 31, 2014, generating an allowance of loan losses to gross loans ratio of 1.89% as compared to 2.58% as of December 31, 2013. The decline in the allowance of loan losses to gross loans ratio was due to growth in loans.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Tangible Common Equity to Tangible Assets Ratio

Tangible common equity to tangible assets ratio is supplemental financial information determined by a method other than in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP"). This non-GAAP measure is used by management in the analysis of Hanmi's capital strength. Tangible equity is calculated by subtracting goodwill and other intangible assets from stockholders' equity. Banking and financial institution regulators also exclude goodwill and other intangible assets from stockholders' equity when assessing the capital adequacy of a financial institution. Management believes the presentation of this financial measure excluding the impact of these items provides useful supplemental information that is essential to a proper understanding of the capital strength of Hanmi. This disclosure should not be viewed as a substitution for results determined in accordance with GAAP, nor is it necessarily comparable to non-GAAP performance measures that may be presented by other companies.

The following table reconciles this non-GAAP performance measure to the GAAP performance measure for the periods indicated:

Change in Accounting Principle

As of April 1, 2014, the Bank changed its method of accounting for investment in low-income housing tax credit, as required by FASB ASU 2014-01, Accounting for Investment in Qualified Affordable Housing Projects. Previously, the investment in low-income housing tax credit was accounted for under equity method.

Effective April 1, 2014, the Bank began recording amortization of the initial cost of the investment in proportion to the tax credits and other tax benefits received and recognizing the net investment performance in the income statement as a component of income tax expense (proportional amortization method). The Bank recorded this change in accounting principle in accordance with ASU 2014-01 which requires retrospective application of the new accounting principle to all practicable prior accounting periods as if the principle had always been used. The accounting principle was retrospectively applied from the period beginning on January 1, 1998, and to each period thereafter. Net income for the year ended December 31, 2013 decreased by $48,000 due to this change in accounting principle.
