Eagle Bancorp, Inc. Announces Continued Growth and Record Earnings, With Assets Exceeding $5.5 Billion

BETHESDA, Md., April 22, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Eagle Bancorp, Inc. (the "Company") (Nasdaq:EGBN), the parent company of EagleBank, today announced record quarterly net income of $19.4 million for the three months ended March 31, 2015, a 55% increase over the $12.5 million net income for the three months ended March 31, 2014. Net income available to common shareholders for the three months ended March 31, 2015 increased 56% to $19.2 million as compared to $12.4 million for the same period in 2014.

Net income per basic and diluted common share for the three months ended March 31, 2015 was $0.62 and $0.61, respectively as compared to $0.48 per basic common share and $0.47 per diluted common share for the same period in 2014, a 29% increase per basic share and 30% increase per diluted share.

"We are very pleased to report our twenty-fifth consecutive quarter of record earnings, which exhibited continuity and balance in the Company's financial results," noted Ronald D. Paul, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Eagle Bancorp, Inc. The Company's quarterly earnings have increased for each quarter since the fourth quarter of 2008. The Company's performance in the first quarter of 2015 was again highlighted by growth in total loans and total deposits; by 41% growth in total revenue as compared to the same quarter in 2014 and by 9% growth in total revenue as compared to the fourth quarter of 2014; by a continuation of a favorable net interest margin, which was 4.41% for the first quarter of 2015; by continued solid asset quality measures and by further improvement in operating leverage from an already favorable position. For the first quarter in 2015, the efficiency ratio was 44.89%. The strong first quarter earnings resulted in an annualized return on average assets ("ROAA") of 1.49% and an annualized return on average equity ("ROAE") of 13.24%.

In March, the Company announced completion of a common stock raise of $100 million. In total, 2,816,900 shares, including exercise of the underwriter's overallotment option, were issued at $35.50 per share, which was only slightly below the closing price at the date of pricing. This successful common stock raise has enhanced the Company's capital position at March 31, 2015, and provided in part additional resources to support continued growth.

For the first quarter of 2015, total loans grew 3% over December 31, 2014, and were 45% higher at March 31, 2015 as compared to March 31, 2014. For the first quarter of 2015, total deposits increased 6% over December 31, 2014, and were 40% higher at March 31, 2015 than March 31, 2014. Growth in loans and deposits over the last twelve months was in part due to the merger with Virginia Heritage Bank completed October 31, 2014 which added approximately $800 million in loans and $645 million in deposits. Excluding balances acquired in the merger, organic loan and deposit growth over the last twelve months was 19% for loans and 20% for deposits.

The net interest margin was 4.41% for the first quarter of 2015, four basis points lower than the first quarter of 2014 and one basis point lower than the fourth quarter of 2014. 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 the Company's continued superior net interest margin."

Total revenue (net interest income plus noninterest income) for the first quarter of 2015 was $62.5 million, or 41% above the $44.5 million of total revenue earned for the first quarter of 2014 and was 9% higher than the $57.1 million of revenue earned in the fourth quarter of 2014.

The primary driver of the Company's revenue growth for the first quarter of 2015 was its net interest income growth of 37%, as compared to the first quarter in 2014 ($54.7 million versus $40.0 million). Coupled with net interest income growth, core noninterest income growth of 52% in the first quarter 2015 contributed to total revenue growth and was due substantially to increased gains on the sale of residential mortgage loans. Strong activity in both purchase money and refinance transactions contributed to higher revenue. Additionally, noninterest income for the first quarter in 2015 benefitted from gains on sales of investment securities net of prepayment penalties on early payoffs of Federal Home Loan Banking ("FHLB") advances.

For the first quarter of 2015, revenue from residential mortgage banking net interest income and fees represented 5% of total revenue versus 3% of total revenue for the first quarter of 2014. While the Company's primary focus continues to be on generating spread or net interest income, management also looks to residential mortgage banking as well as SBA loan activity as components of the Company's ongoing noninterest income growth opportunities. The mix of residential mortgage originations was 21% purchase money and 79% refinance transactions for the first quarter of 2015. Sales of SBA guaranteed loans resulted in $340 thousand of gains on sales. The Company remains committed to growing the SBA business.

Asset quality measures remained solid at March 31, 2015. Net charge-offs (annualized) were 0.15% of average loans for the first quarter of 2015, as compared to 0.11% of average loans for the first quarter of 2014. At March 31, 2015, the Company's nonperforming loans amounted to $19.6 million (0.44% of total loans) as compared to $36.3 million (1.19% of total loans) at March 31, 2014 and $22.4 million (0.52% of total loans) at December 31, 2014. Nonperforming assets amounted to $31.9 million (0.58% of total assets) at March 31, 2015 compared to $45.1 million (1.19% of total assets) at March 31, 2014 and $35.7 million (0.68% of total assets) at December 31, 2014.

Management continues to remain attentive to any 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 credit losses, at 1.07% of total loans (excluding loans held for sale) at March 31, 2015, is adequate to absorb potential credit losses within the loan portfolio at that date. The allowance for credit losses was 1.37% of total loans at March 31, 2014. The decline in the ratio of the allowance to total loans since March 31, 2014 was due to loans acquired in the merger with Virginia Heritage being accounted for at fair value in accordance with U.S. GAAP. The allowance for credit losses represented 244% of nonperforming loans at March 31, 2015, as compared to 116% at March 31, 2014 and 205% at December 31, 2014.

"The Company's operating cost management remained quite strong in the quarter," noted Mr. Paul. The efficiency ratio of 44.89% reflects management's ongoing efforts to maintain superior operating leverage. The level of noninterest expenses as a percentage of average assets has declined to 2.13% in the first quarter of 2015 as compared to 2.47% in the first quarter of 2014. The merger completed in the fourth quarter of 2014 has accelerated a trend of improvement in the Company's operating leverage. The in-market transaction allowed the Company to achieve significant cost savings beginning in the fourth quarter of 2014, which has carried into the initial quarter of 2015. The Company's goal is to maximize operating performance without inhibiting growth or negatively impacting our ability to service our customers. Mr. Paul further noted, "We will maintain strict oversight of expenses, while retaining an infrastructure to remain competitive, support our growth initiatives and manage risk."

Total assets at March 31, 2015 were $5.50 billion, a 45% increase as compared to $3.80 billion at March 31, 2014, and a 5% increase as compared to $5.25 billion at December 31, 2014. Total loans (excluding loans held for sale) were $4.44 billion at March 31, 2015, a 45% increase as compared to $3.06 billion at March 31, 2014, and a 3% increase as compared to $4.31 billion at December 31, 2014. Loans held for sale amounted to $62.8 million at March 31, 2015 as compared to $21.9 million at March 31, 2014, a 187% increase, and $44.3 million at December 31, 2014, a 42% increase. The investment portfolio totaled $333.5 million at March 31, 2015, a 14% decrease from the $387.8 million balance at March 31, 2014. As compared to December 31, 2014, the investment portfolio at March 31, 2015 decreased by $49 million.

Total deposits at March 31, 2015 were $4.58 billion compared to deposits of $3.27 billion at March 31, 2014, a 40% increase and $4.31 billion at December 31, 2014, a 6% increase. Total borrowed funds (excluding customer repurchase agreements) were $79.3 million at March 31, 2015 as compared to $39.3 million at March 31, 2014, a 102% increase, and $219.3 million at December 31, 2014, a 64% decrease. Included in borrowed funds at March 31, 2015 and December 31, 2014 is the $70 million of ten-year noncallable 5.75% subordinated debt issued in August 2014. The subordinated debt qualifies as Tier 2 capital for regulatory purposes at the Company. The decline in borrowed funds in the first quarter 2015 as compared to December 31, 2014 was the result of the payoff of all FHLB advances.

Total shareholders' equity at March 31, 2015 increased to $741.5 million, compared to shareholders' equity of $410.4 million at March 31, 2014, an 81% increase and $620.8 million at March 31, 2014, a 19% increase. The increases are primarily due to retained earnings, the public offering of common stock completed during the first quarter of 2015, which netted approximately $94.5 million and to the issuance of common stock to consummate the merger with Virginia Heritage Bank. The ratio of common equity to total assets was 12.17% at March 31, 2015 as compared to 9.30% at March 31, 2014 and 10.46% at December 31, 2014. The Company's capital position remains substantially in excess of regulatory requirements for well capitalized status, with a total risk based capital ratio of 13.90% at March 31, 2015, as compared to 13.04% at March 31, 2014 and 12.97% at December 31, 2014. In addition, the tangible common equity ratio (tangible common equity to tangible assets) was 10.39% at March 31, 2015, compared to 9.22% at March 31, 2014 and 8.54% at December 31, 2014.

For the three months ended March 31, 2015, the Company reported an annualized ROAA of 1.49% as compared to 1.36% for the three months ended March 31, 2014. The annualized ROAE for the three months ended March 31, 2015 was 13.24%, as compared to 14.38% for the three months ended March 31, 2014, the lower ROAE due to the higher average capital position.

Net interest income increased 37% for the three months ended March 31, 2015 over the same period in 2014, resulting from growth in average earning assets of 38%. The net interest margin was 4.41% as compared to 4.45% for the three months ended March 31, 2014. The Company believes its net interest margin remains favorable compared to peer banking companies and that its disciplined approach to managing the loan portfolio yield to 5.26% for the first quarter in 2015 has been a significant factor in its overall profitability.

The provision for credit losses was $3.3 million for the three months ended March 31, 2015 as compared to $1.9 million for the three months ended March 31, 2014. The higher provisioning in the first quarter of 2015, as compared to the first quarter of 2014, is due to both higher loan growth and higher net charge-offs. Net charge-offs of $1.6 million in the first quarter of 2015 represented an annualized 0.15% of average loans, excluding loans held for sale, as compared to $837 thousand or an annualized 0.11% of average loans, excluding loans held for sale, in the first quarter of 2014. Net charge-offs in the first quarter of 2015 were attributable primarily to commercial and industrial loans ($947 thousand), home equity and other consumer ($439 thousand), owner occupied-commercial real estate loans ($317 thousand) offset by a recovery in land development and construction loans ($95 thousand).

Noninterest income for the three months ended March 31, 2015 increased to $7.8 million from $4.5 million for the three months ended March 31, 2014, a 75% increase. This increase was primarily due to an increase of $2.0 million in gains on the sale of residential mortgage loans due to higher origination and sales volumes and to gains realized on the sale of investment securities of $2.2 million. Residential mortgage loans closed were $285 million for the first quarter in 2015 versus $96 million for the first quarter of 2014. Investment gains were realized to take advantage of market conditions in February 2015. Net investment gains were $2.2 million for the three months ended March 31, 2015 compared to $8 thousand for the same period in 2014. A $1.1 million loss on the early extinguishment of debt was recorded in March of 2015 due to the early payoff of FHLB advances. This decision was made in light of deposit growth in the quarter and expected benefits to the cost of funds going forward. Excluding investment securities gains and the loss on early extinguishment of debt, total noninterest income was $6.8 million for the three months ended March 31, 2015, as compared to $4.5 million for the same period in 2014, a 52% increase.

The efficiency ratio, which measures the ratio of noninterest expense to total revenue, was 44.89% for the first quarter of 2015, as compared to 51.94% for the first quarter of 2014. Noninterest expenses totaled $28.1 million for the three months ended March 31, 2015, as compared to $23.1 million for the three months ended March 31, 2014, a 22% increase. Cost increases for salaries and benefits were $2.1 million, due primarily to increased staff from the merger, merit increases, employee benefit expense increases and incentive compensation. Premises and equipment expenses were $921 thousand higher, due to costs of additional branches and office space acquired in the merger and to increases in leasing costs. Marketing and advertising expense increased by $223 thousand primarily due to costs associated with a new online publication. Data processing expense increased $196 thousand primarily due to increased accounts and transaction volume primarily arising out of the merger and to higher network expenses. Higher FDIC expenses were due to higher deposit levels. Merger related expenses attributable to the merger with Virginia Heritage Bank were $111 thousand for the quarter. Other expenses increased $1.2 million due to costs and valuations associated with other real estate owned.

(1) 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 and as such is 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.

(1) Tangible book value per common share is a non-GAAP financial measure derived from GAAP-based amounts. We calculate tangible book value per common share by dividing tangible common equity by common shares outstanding, as compared to book value per common share, which we calculate by dividing common shareholders' equity by common shares outstanding. We believe that this information is 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.
(2) Computed by dividing noninterest expense by the sum of net interest income and noninterest income.
(3) Excludes loans held for sale.
