HOUSTON, July 28, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Green Bancorp, Inc. (NASDAQ:GNBC), the bank holding company that operates Green Bank, N.A., today announced results for its second quarter and six months ended June 30, 2015. The Company reported net income for the quarter of $4.1 million, or $0.16 per diluted common share, compared to net income of $4.7 million or $0.22 per diluted common share reported for the same period in 2014. Excluding one-time acquisition expenses, net income for the second quarter 2015 would have been $5.4 million or $0.20 per diluted common share, compared to $5.0 million or $0.24 per diluted common share reported for the same period in 2014.

Manny Mehos, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Green Bancorp said, "I am pleased with our performance this quarter as we continue to execute on our strategic plan of building Green Bank into a premier middle market Texas bank through both organic growth and disciplined, strategic acquisitions. Furthermore, I believe our strong quarterly results demonstrate the vibrancy, resiliency, and diversity of the Texas economy."

Mr. Mehos continued, "Our recently announced agreement with Patriot Bancshares is a significant milestone for our company and our employees. Upon closing, Green Bank will have approximately $3.6 billion in assets, making us the 15th largest bank headquartered in Texas. The increased scale in our core markets will better position Green Bank to increase market share and grow organically while offering strong earnings accretion."

Geoff Greenwade, President of Green Bancorp and Chief Executive of Green Bank remarked, "Our second quarter results highlight the solid execution by our bankers as we delivered both strong loan and deposit growth. Our credit metrics continued to show good improvement and economic activity remains healthy. Given the positive momentum in our business, we remain confident that we are well positioned to meet our growth expectations for the year."

Results of operations for the quarter ended June 30, 2015

Net income for the quarter ended June 30, 2015 was $4.1 million, compared with $4.7 million for the same period in 2014. Net income per diluted common share was $0.16 for the quarter ended June 30, 2015, compared with $0.22 for the same period in 2014. The decrease in net income was principally due to the $1.3 million, net of tax, of one-time acquisition expenses. Excluding the after-tax impact of the one-time acquisition expenses, net income for the quarter would have increased to $5.4 million, or $0.20 per diluted common share. Returns on average assets and average common equity, each on an annualized basis, for the three months ended June 30, 2015 were 0.73% and 5.60%, respectively. Green Bancorp's efficiency ratio, which represents noninterest expense divided by the sum of net interest income and noninterest income, was 69.43% for the three months ended June 30, 2015. Excluding the impact of one-time acquisition expenses, returns on average assets and average common equity, each on an annualized basis, would have been 0.96% and 7.36%, respectively, and the efficiency ratio would have been 61.07% for the three months ended June 30, 2015.

Net interest income before provision for loan losses for the quarter ended June 30, 2015, was $20.9 million, an increase of $4.2 million, or 25.2%, compared with $16.7 million during the same period in 2014. The increase was primarily due to a 29.5% increase in average loan volume largely driven by the SharePlus acquisition and organic loan growth, somewhat offset by a 23 basis point decrease in the average loan yield. The net interest margin for the quarter ended June 30, 2015 decreased to 3.84%, compared with 3.87% for the same period in 2014 and decreased from 3.93% for the quarter ended March 31, 2015. Average noninterest-bearing deposits for the quarter ended June 30, 2015 were $491.3 million, an increase of $173.2 million compared with the same period in 2014, and an increase of $60.8 million compared to the quarter ended March 31, 2015.

Net interest income before provision for loan losses during the quarter ended June 30, 2015 increased 2.0% or $407 thousand, compared with $20.5 million for the quarter ended March 31, 2015, primarily due to an 2.8% increase in average loan volume.

Noninterest income for the quarter ended June 30, 2015 was $3.0 million, an increase of $1.0 million, or 49.4%, compared with $2.0 million for the same period in 2014. This increase was primarily due to the acquired SharePlus operations and continued growth in government guaranteed loan sales and servicing income. When comparing the quarter ended June 30, 2015 to the quarter ended March 31, 2015, noninterest income increased $870 thousand, or 41.7%, from $2.1 million primarily due to a $315 thousand, or 48.8%, increase in gain on sale of the government guaranteed portion of certain loans and a $300 thousand, or 80.9%, increase in loan fees, principally related to loan prepayments.

Noninterest expense for the quarter ended June 30, 2015 was $16.6 million, an increase of $5.2 million, or 45.5%, compared with $11.4 million for the same period in 2014. The increase was primarily due to the $2.0 million of one-time acquisition expenses principally related to the pending merger with Patriot Bancshares, Inc.; a $1.7 million increase in salaries and employee benefits resulting from increased staffing principally due to the SharePlus acquisition, increased compensation due to our portfolio banker compensation program and general merit compensation increases; and smaller increases in various expenses due primarily to the SharePlus acquisition and public company activity. When comparing the quarter ended June 30, 2015 to the quarter ended March 31, 2015, noninterest expense increased 20.5%, or $2.8 million, from $13.8 million, primarily due to the $2.0 million of one-time acquisition expenses and $375 thousand write-down of other real estate owned.

Loans at June 30, 2015 were $1.9 billion, an increase of $461.0 million, or 32.2%, compared with $1.4 billion at June 30, 2014, primarily due to the SharePlus acquisition, continued opportunities for our portfolio bankers to generate new loans and expand existing relationships within our target markets, and increased mortgage warehouse volume. Loans at June 30, 2015 increased $83.9 million, or 4.6%, from March 31, 2015 due to increased mortgage warehouse volume and continued marketing activity of our portfolio bankers within our target markets. Average loans held for investment increased 29.4% or $416.5 million to $1.8 billion for the quarter ended June 30, 2015, compared with $1.4 billion for the same period in 2014. Average loans held for investment for the quarter ended June 30, 2015 increased 2.8% or $49.8 million from the quarter ended March 31, 2015.

Deposits at June 30, 2015 were $2.0 billion, an increase of $490.0 million, or 31.9%, compared to June 30, 2014, primarily due to $234.1 million related to the SharePlus acquisition and $227.8 million increase in our commercial deposits. Deposits at June 30, 2015 increased $92.7 million or 4.8% from March 31, 2015 due primarily to commercial deposit balance growth which included a temporary balance increase of approximately $95 million related to a title company relationship. Noninterest-bearing deposits at June 30, 2015 were $604.1 million, an increase of $261.5 million, or 76.3%, compared to June 30, 2014 and an increase of $145.0 million, or 31.6%, compared to March 31, 2015. Average deposits increased 27.4% or $414.5 million to $1.9 billion for the quarter ended June 30, 2015, compared with the same period of 2014.

Results of operations for the six months ended June 30, 2015

Net income for the six months ended June 30, 2015 was $8.8 million, compared with $8.2 million for the same period in 2014. Net income per diluted common share was $0.33 for the six months ended June 30, 2015, compared with $0.39 for the same period in 2014. The increase in net income was principally due to increased interest income resulting from growth in loans partially due to the SharePlus acquisition. Other factors also contributed to the increase, including an increase in noninterest income and a decrease in interest expense, offset by increases in noninterest expense, provision for loan losses and provision for income taxes. Returns on average assets and average common equity, each on an annualized basis, for the six months ended June 30, 2015 were 0.79% and 6.03%, respectively. Green Bancorp's efficiency ratio was 65.26% for the six months ended June 30, 2015.

Net interest income before provision for loan losses for the six months ended June 30, 2015, was $41.4 million an increase of $9.1 million, or 28.0%, compared with $32.4 million during the same period in 2014. The increase was primarily due to a 29.7% increase in average loan volume, partially offset by a 16 basis point decrease in loan yields. The net interest margin for the six months ended June 30, 2015 increased to 3.88%, compared with 3.84% for the same period in 2014. Average noninterest-bearing deposits for the six months ended June 30, 2015 were $461.1 million, an increase of $164.2 million compared with the same period in 2014. Average shareholders' equity for the six months ended June 30, 2015 was $294.0 million, an increase of $90.7 million compared with the same period in 2014.

Noninterest income for six months ended June 30, 2015 was $5.0 million, an increase of $1.5 million, or 40.6%, compared with $3.6 million for the same period in 2014. This increase was primarily due to a $615 thousand increase in customer service fees, a $382 thousand increase in gain on sale of the guaranteed portion of certain loans, and the $232 thousand in gain on sale of held for sale loans.

Noninterest expense for the six months ended June 30, 2015, was $30.3 million, an increase of $8.3 million, or 37.9%, compared with $22.0 million for the same period in 2014. This increase was primarily due to a $3.6 million increase in salaries and employee benefits resulting from increased staffing principally due to the SharePlus acquisition, and from increased compensation due to our portfolio banker compensation program and general merit compensation increases, and the $2.2 million in one-time acquisition expenses. Additional factors contributing to the increase include other ongoing expenses related to the SharePlus acquisition and public company activity.

Average loans held for investment increased 29.6% or $412.9 million to $1.8 billion for six months ended June 30, 2015, compared with $1.4 billion for the same period in 2014.

Asset Quality

Nonperforming assets totaled $11.3 million or 0.47% of period end total assets at June 30, 2015, down from $18.6 million or 1.03% of period end total assets at June 30, 2014, and $14.2 million or 0.63% of period end total assets at March 31, 2015. Accruing loans classified as troubled debt restructures and included in the nonperforming asset totals were $681 thousand at June 30, 2015, compared with $4.0 million at June 30, 2014. The allowance for loan losses was 0.97% of total loans at June 30, 2015, compared with 1.10% of total loans at June 30, 2014 and 0.97% of total loans at March 31, 2015. The reduction in the percentage when compared to June 30, 2014 was largely due to acquired SharePlus loans which are accounted for under ASC 310-20 and ASC 310-30. At June 30, 2015, the Company's allowance for loans losses was 1.07% of total loans excluding acquired loans that are accounted for under ASC 310-20 and ASC 310-30.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Green Bancorp's management uses certain non-GAAP (generally accepted accounting principles) financial measures to evaluate its performance. Specifically, Green Bancorp reviews tangible book value per common share, the tangible common equity to tangible assets ratio, allowance for loan losses to total loans excluding acquired loans, allowance for loan losses plus net discount on acquired loans to total loans adjusted for acquired loan net discount and selected metrics excluding one-time acquisition expenses. Green Bancorp has included in this Earnings Release information related to these non-GAAP financial measures for the applicable periods presented. Please refer to the "Notes to Financial Highlights" at the end of this Earnings Release for a reconciliation of these non-GAAP financial measures.

Capital Management

The Basel III Capital Rules adopted by the federal regulatory authorities in 2013 substantially revised the risk-based capital requirements applicable to Green Bancorp, Inc., and Green Bank, N.A. The Basel III Capital Rules became effective for Green Bancorp on January 1, 2015, subject to a phase-in period for certain provisions. Among other things, the Basel III Capital Rules introduced a new capital measure called "Common Equity Tier 1," which is a comparison of the sum of certain equity capital components to total risk-weighted assets, and revised the risk-weighting approach of the capital ratios with a more risk-sensitive approach that expanded the risk-weighting categories from the previous Basel I derived categories to a much larger and more risk-sensitive number of categories, depending on the nature of the assets.

Notes to Financial Highlights
(Unaudited)

We identify certain financial measures discussed in this release as being "non-GAAP financial measures." In accordance with the SEC's rules, we classify a financial measure as being a non-GAAP financial measure if that financial measure excludes or includes amounts, or is subject to adjustments that have the effect of excluding or including amounts, that are included or excluded, as the case may be, in the most directly comparable measure calculated and presented in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles as in effect from time to time in the United States in our statements of income, balance sheet or statements of cash flows. Non-GAAP financial measures do not include operating and other statistical measures or ratios or statistical measures calculated using exclusively either financial measures calculated in accordance with GAAP, operating measures or other measures that are not non-GAAP financial measures or both.

The non-GAAP financial measures that we discuss in this release should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for the most directly comparable or other financial measures calculated in accordance with GAAP. Moreover, the manner in which we calculate the non-GAAP financial measures that we discuss in this release may differ from that of other companies reporting measures with similar names. You should understand how such other banking organizations calculate their financial measures similar or with names similar to the non-GAAP financial measures we have discussed in this release when comparing such non-GAAP financial measures.

Tangible Book Value Per Common Share. Tangible book value is a non-GAAP measure generally used by financial analysts and investment bankers to evaluate financial institutions. We calculate: (a) tangible common equity as shareholders' equity less goodwill and core deposit intangibles, net of accumulated amortization; and (b) tangible book value per common share as tangible common equity (as described in clause (a)) divided by shares of common stock outstanding. For tangible book value, the most directly comparable financial measure calculated in accordance with GAAP is our book value.

We believe that this measure is important to many investors in the marketplace who are interested in changes from period to period in book value per common share exclusive of changes in intangible assets. Goodwill and other intangible assets have the effect of increasing total book value while not increasing our tangible book value.

The following table reconciles, as of the dates set forth below, total shareholders' equity to tangible common equity and presents our tangible book value per common share compared with our book value per common share:

Tangible Common Equity to Tangible Assets. Tangible common equity to tangible assets is a non-GAAP measure generally used by financial analysts and investment bankers to evaluate financial institutions. We calculate: (a) tangible common equity as shareholders' equity less goodwill and core deposit intangibles, net of accumulated amortization; (b) tangible assets as total assets less goodwill and core deposit intangibles, net of accumulated amortization; and (c) tangible common equity to tangible assets as tangible common equity (as described in clause (a)) divided by tangible assets (as described in clause (b)). For common equity to tangible assets, the most directly comparable financial measure calculated in accordance with GAAP is total shareholders' equity to total assets.

We believe that this measure is important to many investors in the marketplace who are interested in the relative changes from period to period in common equity and total assets, each exclusive of changes in intangible assets. Goodwill and other intangible assets have the effect of increasing both total shareholders' equity and assets while not increasing our tangible common equity or tangible assets.

The following table reconciles, as of the dates set forth below, total shareholders' equity to tangible common equity and total assets to tangible assets and presents our tangible common equity to tangible assets:

Allowance for Loan Losses to Total Loans excluding Acquired Loans. The allowance for loan losses to total loans excluding acquired loans is a non-GAAP measure used by management to evaluate the Company's financial condition. Due to the application of purchase accounting, we use this non-GAAP ratio that excludes that impact of these items to evaluate our allowance for loan losses to total loans. We calculate: (a) total loans excluding acquired loans as total loans less the fair value of acquired loans accounted for under ASC topics 310-20 and 310-30; and (b) allowance for loan losses to total loans excluding acquired loans as the allowance for loan losses divided by total loans excluding acquired loans (as described in clause (a)). For allowance for loan losses to total loans excluding acquired loans, the most directly comparable financial measure calculated in accordance with GAAP is allowance for loan losses to total loans.

We believe that this measure is important to many investors in the marketplace who are interested in the relative changes from period to period in the allowance for loan losses to total loans excluding acquired loans. The acquired loans may have a premium or discount associated with them that includes a potential credit loss component with similar characteristics to the allowance for loan losses. This measure reports the allowance for loan loss coverage to only those loans not accounted for pursuant to ASC topics 310-20 and 310-30 which may assist the investor in evaluating the allowance coverage of loans excluding acquired loans.

The following table reconciles, as of the dates set forth below, allowance for loan losses to total loans excluding acquired loans:

Allowance for Loan Losses plus Acquired Loan Net Discount to Total Loans adjusted for Acquired Loan Net Discount. Allowance for loan losses plus acquired loan net discount to total loans adjusted for acquired loan net discount is a non‑GAAP measure used by management to evaluate the Company's financial condition. We calculate: (a) allowance for loan losses plus acquired loan net discount as allowance for loan losses plus acquired loan net discount, net of accumulated amortization; (b) total loans adjusted for acquired loan net discount as total loans plus acquired loan net discount, net of accumulated amortization; and (c) allowance for loan losses plus acquired loan net discount to total loans adjusted for acquired loan net discount as allowance for loan losses plus acquired loan net discount (as calculated in clause (a)) divided by total loans adjusted for acquired loan net discount (as calculated in clause (b)).

We believe that this measure is important to many investors in the marketplace who are interested in the relative changes from period to period in the allowance for loan losses plus the acquired loan net discount to total loans adjusted for the acquired loan net discount. This measure reports the combined allowance for loan loss and acquired loan net discount (or premium) as a percentage of loans inclusive of the acquired loan net discount (or premium) which may assist the investor in evaluating allowance coverage on loans inclusive of additional discount or premium resulting from purchase accounting adjustments.

The following table reconciles, as of the dates set forth below, allowance for loan losses plus acquired loans net discount to total loans adjusted for acquired loan net discount:

Selected Metrics Excluding One-time Acquisition Expenses. The selected metrics excluding one-time acquisition expense are non-GAAP measures used by management to evaluate the Company's performance. We calculate: (a) noninterest expense excluding one-time acquisition expenses as total noninterest expense less the one-time acquisition expenses; (b) net income excluding one-time acquisition expenses as net income less one-time acquisition expenses, net of taxes; (c) diluted earnings per share excluding one-time acquisition expenses as net income excluding one-time acquisition expenses (as calculated in clause (b)) divided by the weighted average diluted shares outstanding; (d) return on average assets excluding one-time acquisition expenses as net income excluding one-time acquisition expenses (as calculated in clause (b)) divided by average total assets; (e) return on average equity excluding one-time acquisition expenses as net income excluding one-time acquisition expenses (as calculated in clause (b)) divided by average total shareholders' equity; and (f) efficiency ratio excluding one-time acquisition expenses as noninterest expense excluding one-time acquisition expenses (as calculated in clause (a)) divided by the sum of net interest income and noninterest income. For noninterest expense excluding one-time acquisition expenses, the most comparable financial measure calculated in accordance with GAAP is noninterest expense. For net income excluding one-time acquisition expenses, the most comparable financial measure calculated in accordance with GAAP is net income. For diluted earnings per share excluding one-time acquisition expenses, the most comparable financial measure calculated in accordance with GAAP is diluted earnings per share. For return on average assets excluding one-time acquisition expenses, the most comparable financial measure calculated in accordance with GAAP is return on average assets. For return on average equity excluding one-time acquisition expenses, the most comparable financial measure calculated in accordance with GAAP is return on average equity. For the efficiency ratio excluding one-time acquisition expenses, the most comparable financial measure calculated in accordance with GAAP is the efficiency ratio.

We believe that these measures are important to many investors in the marketplace who are interested in changes from period to period in noninterest expense, net income, diluted earnings per share, return on average assets, return on average equity and efficiency ratio with the exclusion of one-time acquisition expenses.
