CORAL GABLES, Fla., April 23, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Capital Bank Financial Corp. (Nasdaq:CBF) (the "Company") today reported net income for the first quarter of 2015 of $11.4 million, or $0.24 per diluted share, and core net income of $13.0 million, or $0.27 per diluted share. Net income remained consistent year over year, while net income per diluted share rose 9%.

Core adjustments for the first quarter of 2015 included $2.4 million of restructuring charges related to facility closure activities and severance, $0.1 million of contingent value right ("CVR") expense, $0.1 million of gains on sales of investment securities, and $0.1 million of non-cash equity compensation associated with original founder awards.

Gene Taylor, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Capital Bank Financial Corp., commented, "The highlights of this quarter included strong and consistent growth in loans and deposits. We also made progress reducing expenses, by driving further reductions in legacy credit costs and putting plans in place to rationalize the branch network. Getting the right balance between revenues and cost to serve is critical in this persistent low-interest rate environment."

Chris Marshall, Chief Financial Officer of Capital Bank Financial Corp., added, "We continue to see solid results from each of our key markets, which give us confidence that 2015 will be another year of record performance."

Loan Portfolio and Composition

During the first quarter, the loan portfolio increased by $77.8 million to $5.1 billion, a 6% annualized rate. New loans of $316.5 million were offset by resolutions totaling $25.0 million, including transfers to OREO of $3.1 million, and principal repayments of $213.7 million.

The relative composition of the Company's loan portfolio at the end of the first quarter of 2015 and fourth and first quarters of 2014 was as follows:

Mar 31,
2015
Dec 31,
2014
Mar 31,

Commercial real estate 23% 23% 26%
C&I 43% 42% 41%
Consumer 32% 32% 30%
Other 2% 3% 3%
Total 100% 100% 100%

Deposits Composition and Yields

During the first quarter, total deposits increased by $108.5 million to $5.4 billion. The sequential increase was mainly due to the Company's continued focus on growing lower cost checking accounts, which increased $81.7 million, or at a 13% annualized rate, and an increase of $26.0 million in money market balances. Both, sequentially and year over year, the cost of core and total deposits remained flat at 0.15% and 0.34%, respectively. Core deposits include all checking, savings and money market accounts and represent 73% of total deposits.

Net Interest Income and Net Interest Margin

Net interest income declined $1.6 million to $59.7 million from $61.4 million for the fourth quarter of 2014 and declined $2.7 million from $62.5 million for the first quarter of 2014. The net interest margin for the first quarter of 2015 was 3.96%, a decline of nine basis points sequentially and forty-five basis points year over year. The sequential and year over year net interest margin decline was due to the lower average yield on new loans as compared to the yields of the Company's legacy acquired loans. New and acquired non-impaired loans represent 74% of our total loan portfolio, up from 73% and 64% at December 31, 2014 and March 31, 2014, respectively. The average yield on new loans outstanding is 3.61% compared to an average yield on acquired impaired loans outstanding of 8.11%.

Non-Interest Income

Non-interest income declined $0.7 million to $9.9 million from the fourth quarter of 2014 and $1.4 million from $11.4 million for the first quarter of 2014. The sequential decline was mainly driven by lower service charges on deposits accounts due to an 11% decline in customer accounts in overdraft and lower miscellaneous investment income and gains on sales of investment securities, partially offset by a decline in FDIC indemnification asset amortization due to lower provision reversals on covered loans.

The year over year decline was mainly driven by lower service charges on deposits accounts due to a 21% decline in customer accounts in overdraft, lower investment advisory commissions due to a 10% decline in assets under management, and a decline in OREO rental income reflecting the continued resolution of special assets. Partially offsetting the decline, fees on mortgage loans originated and sold increased 51% as residential mortgages sold increased 33% year over year.

Provision for Loan and Lease Losses and Credit Quality

The reversal of provision of $0.8 million recorded for the first quarter of 2015 included a $1.1 million provision for new and acquired non-impaired loans offset by $1.9 million in reversals of impairment due to improvements in cash flow estimates for certain acquired impaired loan pools. The improvement in cash flow estimates mainly resulted from higher than anticipated payoffs. Net charge-offs for the first quarter of 2015 were $1.1 million, down 23% from the fourth quarter of 2014.

At March 31, 2015, the allowance for loan and lease losses was $48.2 million, of which $26.9 million related to acquired impaired loans and $21.3 million related to new and acquired non-impaired loans. The allowance for loan and lease losses represents 0.95% of the Company's total $5.1 billion loan portfolio.

At March 31, 2015, non-performing loans were $127.3 million, down from $130.6 million and $237.0 million at December 31, 2014 and March 31, 2014, respectively.

New and acquired non-impaired loans represent 74% of the Company's total loan portfolio, up from 73% and 64% at December 31, 2014 and March 31, 2014, respectively.

Non-Interest Expense

Non-interest expense increased $1.7 million to $52.6 million from the fourth quarter of 2014 and declined $2.6 million from $55.2 million for the first quarter of 2014. The sequential increase was mainly due to $2.4 million of charges from consolidation of facilities and severance, which is expected to yield improvements on the Company's cost structure over time. Excluding the impact of these charges, non-interest expense declined $0.7 million mainly due to lower legacy credit expenses, which declined $2.1 million, reflecting the continued resolution of special assets, a decline in stock-based compensation expense of $0.2 million, mainly associated with original founder awards, and professional fees.

The year over year decline was mainly due to lower legacy credit expenses, which declined $2.4 million, stock based compensation expense as discussed above, and the reduction in occupancy costs as a result of the Company's continued focus on consolidating facilities. Excluding the impact of the facility related charges, non-interest expense declined $5.0 million, or 9%, year over year. Contributing to the decline was a lower CVR expense due to the early redemption of the CVR associated with Southern Community Financial Corporation.

Income Tax Expense

Income tax expense was $6.5 million for the first quarter of 2015, an effective rate of 36%, as compared to $7.8 million and 36% for the fourth quarter of 2014. Income tax expense was $7.2 million and 39% for the first quarter of 2014. The year over year decline in effective rate was mainly due to the favorable impact from higher tax-exempt interest income and lower non-deductible CVR expense.

Financial Position

Total assets increased by $145.3 million to $7.0 billion as of March 31, 2015, from $6.8 billion as of December 31, 2014. During the quarter, the Company's loan portfolio increased by $77.8 million to $5.1 billion, a 6% annualized rate. Deposits increased by $108.5 million to $5.4 billion, and FHLB borrowings increased by $60.0 million. During the quarter, the Company repurchased 961,257 shares of common stock at an average price of $25.99 per share. Tangible book value per share was $19.49 as of March 31, 2015, an increase of $0.21 and $0.80 over December 31, 2014 and March 31, 2014, respectively.

The Company's national bank subsidiary, Capital Bank N.A., has preliminary Tier 1 Leverage, Tier 1 Common, Tier 1 Risk-Based and Total Risk-Based capital ratios of 10.89%, 13.34%, 13.34% and 14.30%, respectively, as of March 31, 2015, under currently applicable regulations.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Core net income, core efficiency ratio, core return-on-assets ("core ROA"), tangible book value and tangible book value per share are each non-GAAP measures used in this report. A reconciliation to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures – net income in the case of core net income and core ROA, total non-interest income and total non-interest expense in the case of core efficiency ratio, and total shareholders' equity in the case of tangible book value and tangible book value per share – appears in tabular form at the end of this release. The Company believes core net income, the core efficiency ratio and core ROA are useful for both investors and management to understand the effects of certain non-interest items and provide an alternative view of the Company's performance over time and in comparison to the Company's competitors. These measures should not be viewed as a substitute for net income. The Company believes that tangible book value and tangible book value per share are useful for both investors and management as these are measures commonly used by financial institutions, regulators and investors to measure the capital adequacy of financial institutions. The Company believes these measures facilitate comparison of the quality and composition of the Company's capital over time and in comparison to its competitors. These measures should not be viewed as a substitute for total shareholders' equity.

These non-GAAP measures have inherent limitations, are not required to be uniformly applied and are not audited. They should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for analysis of results reported under GAAP. These non-GAAP measures may not be comparable to similarly titled measures reported by other companies.
