Second Quarter 2015 financial highlights:

  • Net income available to common shareholders totaled $10.6 million or $0.33 per diluted share during Q2 2015, compared to $9.6 million or $0.30 per diluted share during Q1 2015.
  • Net operating earnings available to common shareholders, which excludes certain non-operating items, totaled $11.9 million, or $0.38 per diluted share, in Q2 2015, compared to $0.33 per diluted share in Q1 2015.
  • Annualized operating return on average assets equaled 1.14 percent in Q2 2015, compared to 1.04 percent in Q1 2015.
  • Annualized operating return on average tangible common equity equaled 12.83 percent in Q2 2015, compared to 11.38 percent in Q1 2015.
  • Operating efficiency, the ratio of operating expenses to total operating revenues, improved to 60.0 percent in Q2 2015, compared to 62.1 percent in Q1 2015.
  • Total nonperforming assets as a percentage of total assets declined to 1.06 percent at June 30, 2015, compared to 1.17 percent at March 31, 2015.
  • Annualized net loan growth was approximately 5.8 percent in Q2 2015, resulting from loan originations and commitments of $389.6 million.
  • During May, the Company redeemed $28.4 million of preferred stock that had initially been issued in connection with the TARP Capital Purchase Program. Redemption of the preferred stock is expected to improve annual pre-tax earnings by $2.6 million and is expected to increase fully-diluted net income available to common shareholders by $0.08 per common share annually.
  • Tangible common equity to tangible assets increased to 9.16 percent at June 30, 2015, compared to 9.06 percent at March 31, 2015.

In summarizing the second quarter 2015 financial results, CEO Scott Custer noted that Yadkin's financial performance was strong, with a 15.5 percent increase in operating earnings. "Clearly, our continued focus on growing revenues while remaining disciplined with our operating expenses is working," Custer said. "Successful delivery of our products and services through our traditional branch network, combined with the revenues generated by our specialized business units, particularly our SBA lending function, is allowing Yadkin to generate solid financial returns."

Yadkin also announced that the Board of Directors has declared a quarterly cash dividend of $0.10 per share of its outstanding unrestricted common stock, payable August 20, 2015, to shareholders of record as of August 6, 2015. In announcing the cash dividend, Custer reported that, "Following careful consideration of Yadkin's capital needs, the Board concluded that the dividend is appropriate, given the strength of the Company's performance in the year since the July 2014 merger."

Result of Operations and Asset Quality

2Q 2015 vs. 1Q 2015

Net operating earnings available to common shareholders, which excludes merger and conversion costs, restructuring charges, securities gains, and the income tax effect of adjustments, totaled $11.9 million in the second quarter of 2015 compared to $10.3 million in the first quarter of 2015. Pre-tax, pre-provision operating earnings, which also excludes nonrecurring income and expenses, was $20.0 million in the second quarter of 2015 compared to $18.2 million in the first quarter of 2015. Net income available to common shareholders totaled $10.6 million in the second quarter of 2015, or $0.33 per diluted share, compared to $9.6 million, or $0.30 per diluted share, in the first quarter of 2015.

Net interest income totaled $39.3 million in the second quarter of 2015, up slightly from $39.2 million in the first quarter of 2015. Net interest margin decreased from 4.33 percent in the first quarter of 2015 to 4.29 percent in the second quarter of 2015 due to pressure on loan and investment security yields and an increase in funding costs. However, core net interest margin, which excludes the impact of accretion income on net interest income, increased from 3.74 percent in the first quarter of 2015 to 3.76 percent in the second quarter of 2015. While the Company continues to face significant pricing pressure on loan originations from both low prevailing market interest rates and stiff competition for loans from other financial institutions, Yadkin benefited from a favorable change in its earning asset and funding mix during the second quarter of 2015.

Net accretion income on acquired loans totaled $4.1 million in the second quarter of 2015, which consisted of $812 thousand of net accretion on purchased credit-impaired ("PCI") loans and $3.3 million of accretion income on purchased non-impaired loans. Net accretion income on acquired loans in the first quarter of 2015 totaled $4.5 million, which included $1.5 million of accretion on PCI loans and $2.9 million of accretion income on purchased non-impaired loans. Accretion income on purchased non-impaired loans included $1.5 million of accelerated accretion due to principal prepayments in the second quarter of 2015, compared to $906 thousand in the first quarter of 2015.

Provision for loan losses was $994 thousand in the second quarter of 2015 compared to $961 thousand in the first quarter of 2015. The table below summarizes changes in the allowance for loan losses ("ALLL") for the quarters presented.

Net charge-offs (494) (494)
Provision for loan losses 882 79 961
Balance at March 31, 2015 $6,907 $1,377 $8,284

The provision for loan losses for non-PCI loans increased increased by $131 thousand during the second quarter of 2015 due to higher net charge-offs. Provision expense on PCI loans declined $98 thousand in the second quarter of 2015 due to the reversal of previously established reserves on certain commercial and residential real estate loan pools as cash flows improved in those pools. Net charge-offs totaled $920 thousand in the second quarter of 2015, which was an increase from $494 thousand in the first quarter of 2015. Annualized net charge-offs were 0.12 percent of average loans in the second quarter of 2015 compared to 0.07 percent of average loans in the first quarter of 2015.

The ALLL was $8.4 million, or 0.28 percent of total loans as of June 30, 2015, compared to $8.3 million, or 0.28 percent of total loans, as of March 31, 2015. Adjusted ALLL, which includes the ALLL as well as net acquisition accounting fair value adjustments for acquired loans, was 1.88 percent of total loans as of June 30, 2015, down from 2.04 percent as of March 31, 2015. The reduction in adjusted ALLL resulted primarily from lower loss rates used in the Company's ALLL model and continued accretion of fair value discounts.

Nonperforming loans as a percentage of total loans was 1.10 percent as of June 30, 2015, compared to 1.29 percent as of March 31, 2015. Total nonperforming assets (which include nonaccrual loans, loans past due 90 days or more and still accruing, and foreclosed assets) as a percentage of total assets was 1.06 percent as of June 30, 2015 compared to 1.17 percent as of March 31, 2015.

Non-interest income totaled $10.8 million in the second quarter of 2015, compared to $8.8 million in the first quarter of 2015. Government-guaranteed, small business lending income, which includes gains on sales of the guaranteed portion of certain SBA loans as well as servicing fees on previously sold SBA loans, contributed $3.7 million to non-interest income during the second quarter of 2015, an increase of $804 thousand over the first quarter of 2015. Mortgage banking income increased by $311 thousand due to higher production volumes and reversal of previously-recognized servicing impairment. Service charges and fees on deposit accounts increased by $242 thousand. Other non-interest income increased from $918 thousand in the first quarter of 2015 to $1.4 million in the second quarter of 2015, due to increases in trust and brokerage income, certain loan fee income and higher earnings on purchased accounts receivable.

Non-interest expense totaled $32.3 million in the second quarter of 2015, which was an increase from $31.0 million in the first quarter of 2015. Salaries and employee benefits increased by $189 thousand in the second quarter of 2015, due to merit increases that were effective during April and higher incentive-based compensation, partially offset by lower personnel expenses resulting from the positions eliminated during the first quarter. Restructuring charges of $2.3 million in the second quarter of 2015 primarily related to recognition of an obligation to a former executive officer. The Company's operating efficiency ratio, which excludes merger and conversion costs, securities gains, and restructuring charges, improved from 62.1 percent in the first quarter of 2015 to 60.0 percent in the second quarter of 2015.

Income tax expense was $6.1 million in the second quarter of 2015 compared to $5.8 million in the first quarter of 2015. The Company's effective tax rate was 36.1 percent in the second quarter of 2015 compared to 36.3 percent in the first quarter of 2015.

2Q 2015 vs. 2Q 2014

Net operating earnings available to common shareholders, which excludes merger and conversion costs, restructuring charges, securities gains, and the income tax effect of adjustments, totaled $11.9 million in the second quarter of 2015, which was a significant improvement from $2.6 million in the second quarter of 2014. Pre-tax, pre-provision operating earnings, which also excludes nonrecurring income and expenses, was $20.0 million in the second quarter of 2015 compared to $8.1 million in the second quarter of 2014. Net income available to common shareholders increased to $10.6 million in the second quarter of 2015, or $0.33 per diluted share, from $1.7 million, or $0.19 per diluted share, in the second quarter of 2014. The Company's operations and financial performance were significantly impacted in nearly every respect by Yadkin's mergers with VantageSouth Bancshares, Inc. and Piedmont Community Bank Holdings, Inc. on July 4, 2014. Therefore, financial results in the second quarter of 2015 are not comparable to results reported for the second quarter of 2014.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Statements included in this press release include non-GAAP financial measures and should be read along with the accompanying tables, which provide a reconciliation of non-GAAP financial measures to GAAP financial measures. Yadkin management uses non-GAAP financial measures, including: (i) net operating earnings available to common shareholders; (ii) pre-tax, pre-provision operating earnings; (iii) operating non-interest expense, (iv) operating efficiency ratio, (v) adjusted allowance for loan losses to loans; and (vi) tangible common equity, in its analysis of the Company's performance. Net operating earnings available to common shareholders excludes the following from net income available to common shareholders: securities gains and losses, a one-time branch sale gain, merger and conversion costs, restructuring charges, income tax expense from the change in future state tax rates, and the income tax effect of adjustments. Pre-tax, pre-provision operating earnings excludes the following from net income: provision for loan losses, income tax expense, securities gains and losses, a one-time branch sale gain, merger and conversion costs, and restructuring charges. Operating non-interest expense excludes merger and conversion costs and restructuring charges from non-interest expense. The operating efficiency ratio excludes a one-time branch sale gain, securities gains and losses, merger and conversion costs, and restructuring charges from the efficiency ratio. Adjusted allowance for loan losses adds net acquisition accounting fair value discounts to the allowance for loan losses. Tangible common equity excludes preferred stock as well as goodwill and other intangible assets, net, from shareholders' equity.

Management believes that non-GAAP financial measures provide additional useful information that allows readers to evaluate the ongoing performance of the Company. Non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered as an alternative to any measure of performance or financial condition as promulgated under GAAP, and investors should consider Yadkin performance and financial condition as reported under GAAP and all other relevant information when assessing the performance or financial condition of the Company. Non-GAAP financial measures have limitations as analytical tools, and investors should not consider them in isolation or as a substitute for analysis of the results or financial condition as reported under GAAP.

Forward-Looking Statements
