Veritex Holdings, Inc. Reports First Quarter Financial Results

DALLAS, April 29, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Veritex Holdings, Inc. (Nasdaq:VBTX), the holding company for Veritex Community Bank, announced the results today for the quarter ended March 31, 2015. The Company reported net income of $1.8 million or $0.19 diluted earnings per common share, compared to $1.7 million or $0.18 diluted earnings per common share, for the quarter ended December 31, 2014 and $958,000 or $0.15 diluted earnings per common share for the quarter ended March 31, 2014.

Veritex Holdings, Inc. Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Malcolm Holland said, "I am very proud of our Veritex team for their focus and effort to complete another record quarter. Net income for the first quarter of 2015 increased $866,000 or 90.4% from a year ago as we continue to grow income and take advantages of efficiencies in our operating platform."

Mr. Holland continued, "First quarter average loans increased $14.0 million compared to fourth quarter 2014. While loan demand continues to be strong, we had approximately $10.7 million in unexpected payoffs that reduced our loan balance expectations. We continue to see pressure on pricing of new loans, however we believe that we can maintain net interest margin within the range we have seen over the past several quarters. Although the market is competitive, we are confident that our exceptional team of relationship bankers and excellent products and services will allow us to continue execution of our growth strategy for the remainder of 2015."

Mr. Holland added, "Credit quality continues to be strong and the reduction in provision for loan loss expense for the first quarter reflects the quality of our loan portfolio. We continue to monitor current events and factors which could impact our markets and our clients, such as the fall in oil prices; however we have not observed any adverse trends as a result of the fall in oil prices in our markets at this time."

Looking ahead, Mr. Holland noted, "With our demonstrated ability to grow organically together with our pending acquisition of IBT Bancorp, we believe we are well positioned in the growing Dallas-Fort Worth banking market."

First Quarter 2015 Highlights

  • The Company executed a definitive agreement on March 9, 2015 to acquire IBT Bancorp, Inc. ("IBT"), the parent holding company of Independent Bank of Texas ("Independent Bank"). Independent Bank operates two banking locations in the Dallas metropolitan area. At December 31, 2014, IBT had total assets of approximately $121 million, total loans of approximately $99 million and total deposits of approximately $104 million.
  • Total loans increased $115.4 million or 23.1% year-over-year to $615.5 million as of March 31, 2015.
  • Deposits increased $95.6 million or 16.7% year-over-year to $668.3 million as of March 31, 2015.
  • Noninterest expense (excluding acquisition expenses) for the first quarter 2015 was $4.9 million, an increase of $351,000 or 7.7% from the same period in 2014.
  • Continued strong asset quality with nonperforming assets to total assets of 0.12%, net charge-offs to average loans outstanding of 0.01% and other real estate owned of $548,000 as of and for the quarter ended March 31, 2015.
  • Minimal direct exposure to the energy sector as loans secured by oil and gas assets were $2.8 million as of March 31, 2015, or less than 1.0% of total loans.

Results of operations for the three months ended March 31, 2015

For the three months ended March 31, 2015, net income and net income available to common stockholders was $1.8 million, compared to net income and net income available to common stockholders of $1.7 million for the three months ended December 31, 2014 and compared to net income of $958,000 and net income available to common of $938,000 for the three months ended March 31, 2014. Diluted earnings per common share was $0.19 for the three months ended March 31, 2015 compared to $0.18 for the three months ended December 31, 2014, and $0.15 for the three months ended March 31, 2014.

Return on average assets ("ROA") and return on average common equity ("ROE") for the three months ended March 31, 2015 were 0.94% and 6.45%, respectively, compared to 0.86% and 6.21% for the three months ended December 31, 2014, and 0.59% and 5.41% for the three months ended March 31, 2014. The increase in ROA and ROE from March 31, 2014 was the result of continued growth in net income from new clients, expansion of existing client relationships, continued improvement in credit quality, and gains in efficiencies from our operating platform. The efficiency ratio, defined as noninterest expense divided by the sum of net interest income and noninterest income, was 66.67% for the three months ended March 31, 2015 compared to 62.49% and 72.47% for the three months ended December 31, 2014 and March 31, 2014, respectively. The increase in efficiency ratio from December 31, 2014 was the result of two less days of accrued net interest income of approximately $150,000 and inclusion of $197,000 of acquisition related expenses. Excluding acquisition related expenses, the efficiency ratio was 64.09% for the three months ended March 31, 2015.

For the three months ended March 31, 2015, net interest income before provision for loan losses was $6.9 million and net interest margin was 3.82% compared to $6.8 million and 3.74% for the three months ended December 31, 2014 and $5.7 million and 3.79% for the three months ended March 31, 2014. The net interest margin increased 0.08% from the three months ended December 31, 2014 primarily due to a shift in the mix of earning assets from low yielding interest-bearing deposits in other banks to higher yielding loans. As a result, the yield on average earning assets for the three months ended March 31, 2015 improved to 4.24% from 4.16% for the three months ended December 31, 2014. Yield on average loans remained flat at 4.85% compared to the three months ended December 31, 2014. The average yield of interest-bearing liabilities decreased 0.02% compared to 0.73% for the three months ended December 31, 2014. The decrease in average yield on interest-bearing liabilities from December 31, 2014 was due to the non-renewal of $4.0 million of matured certificate of deposits with average yields of 1.10% and a reduction in interest-bearing checking balances related to a large IOLTA account.

The net interest margin improved 0.03% from the three months ended March 31, 2014 due in part to the increase in noninterest-bearing sources of funds including noninterest-bearing deposits and the increase in stockholder's equity largely due to our initial public offering. Also contributing to the increase was a shift in the mix of earning assets as loans grew at a much faster rate than lower yielding investment securities and interest-bearing deposits in other banks and the decrease in cost of interest-bearing deposits. Partially offsetting these improvements, average loan yields declined 0.18% from 5.03% for the three months ended March 31, 2014 as overall market yields for loan originations and renewals were below the average yield of amortizing or paid-off loans. The average yield of interest-bearing liabilities decreased 0.06% from 0.77% for the three months ended March 31, 2014 to 0.71% for the three months ended March 31, 2015 primarily due to a decline in the average cost of money market deposits from 0.61% to 0.59% for the three months ended March 31, 2014 and March 31, 2015, respectively. This decline was the result of a shift in the mix of deposits to brokered money market deposits with an average rate paid of 0.21%.

Noninterest income for the three months ended March 31, 2015 was $766,000, an increase of $110,000 or 16.8% compared to the three months ended December 31, 2014 and an increase of $196,000 or 34.4% compared to the three months ended March 31, 2014. This increase was driven by a rise in mortgage production and corresponding increase in gains on loans held for sale as well as income from the purchase of an additional $7.0 million in bank owned life insurance. This increase was partially offset by reduced dividend income from the bi-annual Federal Reserve Bank stock dividends received in December 2014.

Noninterest expense was $5.1 million for the three months ended March 31, 2015 compared to $4.7 million for the three months ended December 31, 2014 and $4.5 million for the three months ended March 31, 2014 an increase of $403,000 or 8.6% and $548,000 or 12.1%, respectively. Noninterest expense includes $197,000 of acquisition expenses related to the preparation and execution of the definitive agreement to acquire IBT on March 9, 2015. Excluding acquisition related expenses, noninterest expense for the three months ended March 31, 2015 was $4.9 million, an increase of $206,000 or 4.4% from the three months ended December 31, 2014 and an increase of $351,000 or 7.7% for the three months ended March 31, 2014. The increase from the three months ended December 31, 2014 was primarily due to an increase in employee expense of $213,000 related to annual merit increases, seasonal payroll taxes and stock grant expense. The increase from the three months ended March 31, 2014 was primarily due to increased professional service fees and other public company-related costs during the three months ended March 31, 2015.

Income tax expense for the three months ended March 31, 2015 totaled $607,000, an increase of $95,000 or 18.6% compared to $512,000 for the same period in 2014 and a decrease of $186,000 or 23.5% from $793,000 for the three months ended December 31, 2014. The increase from the same period in 2014 was primarily attributable to the $961,000 increase in net operating income from $1.5 million for the three months ended March 31, 2014. This increase was offset by a net discrete tax credit of $186,000 associated with the recognition of non-qualified stock option related deferred tax assets. The decrease of $186,000 from the three months ended December 31, 2014 was primarily related to the net discrete tax benefit recognized in the three months ended March 31, 2015. The Company's estimated annual effective tax rate, before reporting the net impact of discrete items, was approximately 32.6%, 34.8%, and 31.9% for the three months ended March 31, 2015, March 31 2014 and December 31, 2014, respectively.

Financial Condition

Loans (excluding loans held for sale and deferred loan fees) at March 31, 2015 were $615.5 million, an increase of $12.2 million or 2.0% compared to $603.3 million at December 31, 2014, and an increase of $115.4 million or 23.1% compared to $500.1 million at March 31, 2014. This increase was primarily due to strong organic growth and successful execution of our relationship banking strategy.

Deposits at March 31, 2015 were $668.3 million compared to $638.7 million at December 31, 2014, and $572.7 million at March 31, 2014. Deposits increased $29.6 million or 4.6% from December 31, 2014 primarily due to growth in money market balances. Deposits increased $95.6 million or 16.7% from March 31, 2014 primarily due to growth in money market and noninterest-bearing deposits. Noninterest-bearing deposits were $241.7 million at March 31, 2015, $251.1 million at December 31, 2014 and $216.4 at March 31, 2014. Noninterest-bearing deposits declined $9.4 million or 3.7% from December 31, 2014 primarily due to the seasonal nature of our clients' business transactions during the first quarter of the year. Noninterest-bearing deposits grew $25.3 million or 11.7% compared to March 31, 2014 due to continued penetration of our target market and growth of new and existing commercial banking relationships.

Advances from the Federal Home Loan Bank decreased to $15.0 million at March 31, 2015 compared to $40.0 million at December 31, 2014 and $15.0 million at March 31, 2014. The decrease in advances compared to December 31, 2014 was due to a 21-day FHLB advance offered at an interest rate of 0.10% which the bank took advantage of and, as a result, was able to reduce higher rate brokered deposits during the three months ended December 31, 2014.

Asset Quality

Nonperforming assets totaled $941,000 or 0.12% of total assets at March 31, 2015 compared to $541,000 or 0.07% at December 31, 2014 and $2.9 million or 0.44% of total assets at March 31, 2014. The allowance for loan losses was 0.98% of total loans at March 31, 2015 compared to 0.99% of total loans at December 31, 2014 and 1.04% of total loans at March 31, 2014.

Other real estate owned totaled $548,000 at March 31, 2015 compared to $105,000 at December 31, 2014 and $2.8 million at March 31, 2014. The increase from December 31, 2014 was due to an impaired loan that was foreclosed upon in the first quarter 2015 and the sale of one property. The decrease in other real estate owned from March 31, 2014 was due to the sale of four properties in the period from March 31, 2014 to March 31, 2015. Nonaccrual loans were $323,000 at March 31, 2015 compared to $436,000 at December 31, 2014 and $156,000 at March 31, 2014.

The provision for loan losses for the three months ended March 31, 2015 was $110,000 compared to $326,000 and $252,000 for the three months ended December 31, 2014 and March 31, 2014, respectively. The overall decrease in the provision was a result of continued improvement in credit quality.

(2) We calculate our average assets and average equity for a period by dividing the sum of our total assets or total stockholders' equity, as the case may be, at the close of business on each day in the relevant period, by the number of days in the period. We have calculated our return on average assets and return on average equity for a period by dividing net income for that period by our average assets and average equity, as the case may be, for that period.
(3) Net interest margin represents net interest income, annualized on a fully tax equivalent basis, divided by average interest-earning assets.
(4) Efficiency ratio represents noninterest expense divided by the sum of net interest income and noninterest income.
(5) We calculate tangible common equity as total stockholders' equity less preferred stock, goodwill, core deposit intangibles and other intangible assets, net of accumulated amortization, and we calculate tangible assets as total assets less goodwill and core deposit intangibles and other intangible assets, net of accumulated amortization. Tangible common equity to tangible assets is a non-GAAP financial measure, and, as we calculate tangible common equity to tangible assets, the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure is total stockholders' equity to total assets. See our reconciliation of non-GAAP financial measures to their most directly comparable GAAP financial measures in the table captioned "Reconciliation GAAP — NON-GAAP (Unaudited)."

(1) We calculate book value per common share as stockholders' equity less preferred stock at the end of the relevant period divided by the outstanding number of shares of our common stock at the end of the relevant period.
(2) We calculate tangible book value per common share as total stockholders' equity less preferred stock, goodwill, and intangible assets, net of accumulated amortization at the end of the relevant period, divided by the outstanding number of shares of our common stock at the end of the relevant period. Tangible book value per common share is a non-GAAP financial measure, and, as we calculate tangible book value per common share, the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure is total stockholders' equity per common share.
