LOS ANGELES, April 20, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- BBCN Bancorp, Inc. (the "Company") (Nasdaq:BBCN), the holding company of BBCN Bank (the "Bank"), today reported net income of $21.4 million, or $0.27 per diluted common share, for the three months ended March 31, 2015. This compares with net income of $22.7 million, or $0.29 per diluted common share, for the preceding 2014 fourth quarter and $22.2 million, or $0.28 per diluted common share, for the year-ago first quarter.

"Strong organic loan and deposit growth, along with improvements in asset quality, highlight BBCN's 2015 first quarter," said Kevin S. Kim, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of BBCN Bancorp, Inc. "New loan production for the first quarter exceeded the seasonally higher fourth quarter originations by 15% and totaled $351 million. Deposit trends were also positive with noninterest bearing demand deposits increasing to 28% of total deposits. We experienced improvements in asset quality across the board, with a 16% decline in nonaccrual loans and net recoveries of $366,000 for the first quarter. While we continue to be challenged by the low interest rate environment and diminishing purchase accounting benefit, we are very pleased to have posted another quarter of solid operational and financial performance to start off 2015.

"After considerable investment in 2014, we are taking a major step forward in BBCN's transformation to become a more diversified financial institution with the launch of our new residential mortgage, wealth management and credit card business lines. We expect a strong reception by our existing customer base to BBCN's expanded offering of financial products and services and believe these new businesses will not only deepen our existing relationships, but also open the door for more customer acquisition opportunities, ultimately leading to enhanced earnings and shareholder value for BBCN in the years to come," said Kim.

Operating Results for the 2015 First Quarter

The comparability of BBCN's operating results with past performance is impacted by acquisition accounting adjustments related to past acquisitions. The Company provides the following supplemental information to facilitate a better understanding of past financial performance. Operating results for the three months ended March 31, 2015, December 31, 2014, and March 31, 2014 include the following pre-tax acquisition accounting adjustments related to past acquisitions:

(dollars in thousands) Three Months Ended
3/31/2015 12/31/2014 3/31/2014
Accretion of discount on acquired performing loans $2,183 $3,190 $3,202

Amortization of premium on acquired time deposits 75 105 314
Increase to pre-tax income $3,866 $5,020 $6,162

Net Interest Income and Net Interest Margin. Net interest income before provision for loan losses for the 2015 first quarter amounted to $65.1 million, compared with $66.2 million in the preceding fourth quarter of 2014 and $65.0 million in the prior-year first quarter. While the average loans receivable reflect solid gains over prior periods, diminishing acquisition accounting adjustments and lower yields on interest earning assets had the adverse effect of constraining the growth in net interest income. Overall, average loans receivable for the 2015 first quarter rose 2% over the preceding fourth quarter and increased 8% over the first quarter of 2014.

The net interest margin (net interest income divided by average interest earning assets) and the impact of acquisition accounting adjustments are summarized in the following table:

Three Months Ended
3/31/2015 12/31/2014 change 3/31/2014 change
Net interest margin, excluding the effect of acquisition accounting adjustments 3.61% 3.57% 0.04% 3.82% (0.21)%
Acquisition accounting adjustments 0.26 0.33 (0.07) 0.47 (0.21)
Net interest margin 3.87% 3.90% (0.03)% 4.29% (0.42)%

The net interest margin for the 2015 quarter declined 3 basis points from the preceding fourth quarter to 3.87%, but increased 4 basis points on a core basis when excluding the effect of acquisition accounting adjustments. Compared with the year-ago first quarter, net interest margin for the 2015 first quarter declined 42 basis points and decreased 21 basis points when excluding the effect of acquisition accounting adjustments. The Company attributed the pressures on net interest margin largely to declines in the weighted average yield on loans.

The weighted average yield on loans and the impact of acquisition accounting adjustments are summarized in the following table:

Three Months Ended
3/31/2015 12/31/2014 change 3/31/2014 change
Weighted average yield on loans, excluding the effect of acquisition accounting adjustments 4.71% 4.71% 0.00% 4.83% (0.12)%
Acquisition accounting adjustments 0.32 0.40 (0.08) 0.54 (0.22)
Weighted average yield on loans 5.03% 5.11% (0.08)% 5.37% (0.34)%

The weighted average yield on loans for the 2015 first quarter declined 8 basis points to 5.03% from the preceding fourth quarter. On a core basis excluding the effect of acquisition accounting adjustments, the weighted average yield on loans was flat at 4.71%. The weighted average yield on new loans originated during the 2015 first quarter decreased to 4.07% from 4.39% in the preceding fourth quarter, reflecting higher origination levels of variable rate loans and commercial loans. Variable rate loans, which typically have lower initial rates than fixed rate loans, accounted for 68% of new loan originations for the 2015 first quarter and marked the third consecutive period in which variable rate loan volumes exceeded fixed rate loans.

Compared with the prior-year period, the weighted average yield on loans decreased 34 basis points and 12 basis points on a core basis, excluding the effect of acquisition accounting adjustments.

The composition of fixed and variable rate loans and the associated weighted average contractual rates are summarized in the following table:

3/31/2015 12/31/2014 change 3/31/2014 change
Fixed rate loans
As a percentage of total loans 52% 52% —% 49% 3%
Weighted average contractual rate 4.72% 4.75% (0.03)% 4.90% (0.18)%
Variable rate loans
As a percentage of total loans 48% 48% —% 51% (3)%
Weighted average contractual rate 4.14% 4.17% (0.03)% 4.33% (0.19)%

The declines in the weighted average contractual rate for the 2015 first quarter versus prior periods reflect what continues to be a highly competitive rate environment for fixed rate and variable rate loans in the current interest rate environment.

The weighted average cost of deposits and the impact of acquisition accounting adjustments are summarized in the following table:

Three Months Ended
3/31/2015 12/31/2014 change 3/31/2014 change
Weighted average cost of deposits, excluding the effect of acquisition accounting adjustments 0.56% 0.56% —% 0.55% 0.01%
Acquisition accounting adjustments (0.01) (0.01) (0.03) (0.02)
Weighted average cost of deposits 0.55% 0.55% —% 0.52% 0.03%

The weighted average cost of deposits for the 2015 first quarter was flat with the preceding fourth quarter both on a reported basis and on a core basis, excluding the effect of amortization of premium on time deposits assumed in acquisitions. Compared with the prior-year period, the weighted average cost of deposits for the 2015 first quarter increased 3 basis points and just 1 basis point on a core basis, excluding the effect of premium amortization on time deposits assumed in acquisitions.

Noninterest Income. Noninterest income for the 2015 first quarter totaled $11.2 million, compared with $12.1 million in the preceding 2014 fourth quarter and $11.1 million in the prior-year first quarter. The variances in noninterest income is largely attributable to the amount of gain on sale of SBA loans, which amounted to $3.0 million in the 2015 first quarter, $4.1 million in the 2014 fourth quarter, and $2.7 million for the year-ago first quarter.

Noninterest Expense. Total noninterest expense for the 2015 first quarter increased to $39.2 million from $39.0 million in the preceding 2014 fourth quarter and $36.3 million in the first quarter a year ago.

Salaries and employee benefits expense for the 2015 first quarter rose 10% over the preceding fourth quarter, and is largely attributed to higher levels of payroll tax and vacation accruals. The total number of FTEs as of March 31, 2015 was 933, compared with 915 as of December 31, 2014 and 860 as of March 31, 2014. Compared with the 2014 first quarter, salaries and employee benefits expense increased 12%.

Income Tax Provision. The effective tax rate for the 2015 first quarter was 40.0%, compared with 38.5% for the preceding 2014 fourth quarter and 39.6% for the 2014 first quarter.

Balance Sheet Summary

Loans receivable totaled $5.71 billion at March 31, 2015, reflecting a 3% increase over $5.57 billion at December 31, 2014, and a 10% increase over $5.19 billion at March 31, 2014.

Total new loan originations during the first quarter of 2015 amounted to $350.8 million, including SBA loan originations of $65.3 million. Sales of SBA loans to the secondary market and gains derived from those sales are based substantially on the production of SBA 7(a) loans. Production of SBA 7(a) loans amounted to $42.9 million for the first quarter of 2015, compared with $48.3 million for the preceding 2014 fourth quarter. During the 2015 first quarter, the Company sold $32.5 million of its SBA loans held for sale.

Aggregate pay offs and pay downs for the 2015 first quarter amounted to $166.3 million for the quarter, compared with $262.2 million for the preceding 2014 fourth quarter and $195.9 million for the year-ago first quarter.

Total deposits amounted to $5.80 billion at March 31, 2015, reflecting a 2% increase over $5.69 billion at December 31, 2014, and a 9% increase over $5.33 billion at March 31, 2014. The increase in total deposits from December 31, 2014 reflects a 5% increase in noninterest bearing demand deposits and a 6% increase in jumbo time deposits, offset in part by a 4% decrease in money market account balances. Noninterest bearing deposits at March 31, 2015 totaled $1.62 billion and accounted for 28% of total deposits.

Credit Quality

The provision for loan losses for the 2015 first quarter was $1.5 million, compared with $2.4 million for the preceding 2014 fourth quarter and $3.0 million for the prior-year first quarter.

For a more detailed understanding of the changes in the Allowance for Loan and Lease Losses ("ALLL"), the composition of the ALLL has been segmented for disclosure purposes between loans accounted for under the amortized cost method (referred to as "Legacy Loans") and loans acquired through the Center Financial, Pacific International and Foster transactions (referred to as "Acquired Loans"). The Acquired Loans are further segregated between performing and credit impaired loans.

The composition of the ALLL as of March 31, 2015, December 31, 2014, and March 31, 2014 is as follows:

(dollars in thousands) 3/31/2015 12/31/2014 3/31/2014
Legacy Loans (1) $55,397 $58,644 $58,203
Acquired Loans - Performing (2) 1,550 1,767 1,937
Acquired Loans - Credit Impaired (2) 12,647 7,347 5,560
Total ALLL $69,594 $67,758 $65,700
Loans Receivable $5,710,893 $5,565,192 $5,190,794
ALLL coverage ratio 1.22% 1.22% 1.27%
(1) Legacy Loans include loans originated by the Bank's predecessor bank, loans originated by BBCN and loans that were acquired and that have been refinanced as new loans.
(2) Acquired Loans were marked to fair value at acquisition date, and the allowance for loan losses reflect provisions for credit deterioration since the acquisition date.

Following are the components of criticized loan balances as of March 31, 2015, December 31, 2014, and March 31, 2014:

(dollars in thousands) 3/31/2015 12/31/2014 3/31/2014
Special Mention (1) $112,298 $122,334 $93,554
Classified (1) 209,991 224,062 253,342
Criticized $322,289 $346,396 $346,896
(1) Balances include Acquired Loans which were marked to fair value on the date of acquisition.

The Company defines nonperforming loans to include delinquent loans past due 90 days or more on nonaccrual status, delinquent loans past due 90 days or more on accrual status (excluding acquired credit impaired loans) and accruing restructured loans.

Nonaccrual loans declined to $38.8 million, or 0.68% of loans receivable at March 31, 2015. This compares with nonaccrual loans of $46.4 million, or 0.83% of loans receivable, at December 31, 2014 and $47.3 million, or 0.91% of loans receivable, at March 31, 2014. Accruing restructured loans totaled $57.9 million at March 31, 2015, compared with $57.1 million at December 31, 2014 and $37.5 million at March 31, 2014. Total nonperforming loans at March 31, 2015 decreased to $96.7 million, or 1.69% of loans receivable, compared with $103.8 million, or 1.87% of loans receivable, at December 31, 2014 and $84.8 million, or 1.63% of loans receivable, at March 31, 2014.

Nonperforming assets, including other real estate owned, amounted to $116.3 million at March 31, 2015, or 1.60% of total assets, compared with $125.8 million, or 1.76% of total assets, at December 31, 2014, and $104.8 million, or 1.57% of total assets, at March 31, 2014.

The Company recorded net recoveries of $336,000 for the 2015 first quarter, equal to 0.02% of average loans receivable on an annualized basis. This compares with net loan charge offs of $2.8 million, or 0.21% of average loans receivable on an annualized basis, for the preceding 2014 fourth quarter and $4.6 million, or 0.36% of average loans receivable on an annualized basis, for the year-ago first quarter.

The allowance for loan losses at March 31, 2015 was $69.6 million, or 1.22% of loans receivable (excluding loans held for sale), compared with $67.8 million, or 1.22%, at December 31, 2014 and $65.7 million, or 1.27%, at March 31, 2014. The coverage ratio of the allowance for loan losses to nonperforming loans (excluding acquired credit impaired loans) was 72.00% at March 31, 2015, versus 65.25% at December 31, 2014 and 77.44% at March 31, 2014.

Impaired loans (defined as loans for which it is probable that not all principal and interest payments due will be collected in accordance with the contractual terms and restructured loans) totaled $122.7 million at March 31, 2015, compared with $127.1 million at December 31, 2014 and $121.8 million at March 31, 2014.

At March 31, 2015, the Company continued to exceed all regulatory capital requirements to be classified as a "well-capitalized" institution, as summarized in the following table.

3/31/2015 12/31/2014 3/31/2014
Leverage Ratio 11.72% 11.62% 11.66%
Tier 1 Risk-based Ratio 13.36% 13.64% 13.70%
Total Risk-based Ratio 14.50% 14.80% 14.89%

3/31/2015 12/31/2014 3/31/2014
Tangible common equity per share (1) $9.93 $9.72 $9.08
Tangible common equity to tangible assets (1) 11.03% 11.00% 11.00%

(1) Tangible common equity to tangible assets is a non-GAAP financial measure that represents common equity less goodwill and net other intangible assets divided by total assets less goodwill and net other intangible assets. Management reviews tangible common equity to tangible assets in evaluating the Company's capital levels and has included this ratio in response to market participant interest in tangible common equity as a measure of capital. The accompanying financial information includes a reconciliation of the ratio of tangible common equity to tangible assets with stockholders' equity and total assets.
