  • Year-over-year average core deposit growth increases by more than $80 million

VIRGINIA BEACH, Va., Aug. 6, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Hampton Roads Bankshares, Inc. (the "Company") (Nasdaq:HMPR), the holding company for the Bank of Hampton Roads ("BOHR") and Shore Bank ("Shore" collectively the "Banks"), today announced financial results for the second quarter of 2015. Net income attributable to common shareholders for the three and six months ended June 30, 2015 was $2.7 million and $4.1 million, respectively, as compared with net income for the three and six months ended June 30, 2014 of $2.5 million and $6.3 million, respectively, which included $2.9 million of income attributable to an insurance benefit.

"We continue to improve our earnings in the face of strong competition by keeping banking simple - we collect deposits and make loans," said Douglas Glenn, President and Chief Executive Officer. "This approach has been welcomed by our customers and employees and creates the kind of sustainable relationships that builds long-term value for our shareholders."

Net Interest Income

Net interest income increased $702 thousand and $439 thousand during the three and six months ended June 30, 2015 as compared to the same periods in 2014. The growth in net interest income has resulted from the shift away from noninterest-bearing assets and lower yielding assets.

Credit Quality

Our non-performing assets ratio, defined as the ratio of non-performing assets to gross loans plus loans held for sale plus other real estate owned and repossessed assets was 3.36% and 2.95% at June 30, 2015 and December 31, 2014, respectively. The Company's largest borrower, as measured by total exposure, was downgraded to substandard in the third quarter of 2014, and was placed in nonaccrual status in the second quarter of 2015. Excluding the impact of this one relationship moving into nonaccrual status, our non-performing assets ratio would have been 2.02% at June 30, 2015, continuing the downward trend in nonaccrual loans.

Allowance for loan losses increased $686 thousand, or 2.5% to $27.7 million at June 30, 2015; up from $27.1 million at December 31, 2014. Lower historical loss rates reduced the necessary general reserve. The specific reserve component of the allowance rose as a result of the decision by management to move into default the Company's largest remaining substandard relationship. While recoveries are trending downward on a quarterly basis, they continue to offset charge-offs for the year-to-date. There was no additional loss provision expense recorded in the second quarter.

Noninterest Income

Noninterest income for the three and six months ended June 30, 2015 was $8.0 million and $14.5 million, respectively, an increase of $2.5 million or 45.3% and $1.7 million or 12.9%, compared to the same periods in 2014. Mortgage banking revenue continues to be the major driver, due in part to favorable mortgage rates which have produced healthy growth in our mortgage services division during the first six months of 2015 compared to the same period in 2014. Funded mortgage volume in the quarter for Gateway Bank Mortgage totaled $191.8 million versus $113.0 million during the comparable period in 2014.

Noninterest Expense

Noninterest expense for the three and six months ended June 30, 2015 was $20.5 million and $39.1 million, respectively, an increase of $2.8 million or 15.6% and $2.9 million or 8.0%, compared to the same periods in 2014. The overall increase in noninterest expense was primarily driven by increases in salaries and employee benefits resulting from subsidiary expansions, mortgage-related commissions, and increased share-based compensation.

Balance Sheet Trends

Assets were $2.0 billion at June 30, 2015. Since December 31, 2014, there has been a major shift out of overnight funds sold and due from FRB and investment securities available for sale into loans held for sale and loans. Investment securities available for sale were $210.2 million as of June 30, 2015, down from $302.2 million at December 31, 2014. The proceeds from investment security sales partially funded the loan portfolio growth during the quarter and year to date. A general decrease in interest rates contributed to an increase in the net unrealized gains in our portfolio.

Loans have grown 7.5% since December 31, 2014 to $1.5 billion; this growth was primarily driven by a $104.7 million marine loan portfolio purchase which occurred in the first quarter of 2015. In the second quarter of 2015, management made the decision to move into default the Company's largest remaining substandard relationship. Therefore, impaired loans increased by $21.8 million, or 44.6% to $70.7 million at June 30, 2015, compared to $48.9 million at December 31, 2014.

Deposits increased $93.1 million or 5.9% from December 31, 2014. The Company has made a concerted effort to attract additional deposits in order to support loan growth. Approximately half of the deposit growth came from the addition of one commercial deposit relationship obtained through the Company's expansion into Baltimore, MD.

Year-to-date average core deposits, which exclude brokered deposits and certificates of deposit greater than $100,000, have increased by $81.7 million reflecting continued progress in furthering the Company's funding strategy.

Adjustments to Previously Reported Financial Information

In the second quarter of 2015, the Company determined that the gross deferred tax assets, the gross deferred tax liabilities, and the related valuation allowance disclosed in Note 21, "Income Taxes," to the consolidated financial statements of the Company included in the Company's Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2014 (the "2014 Form 10-K"), were overstated by $13.8 million, $48 thousand, and $13.7 million, respectively, as of December 31, 2014. Gross deferred tax assets, and the related valuation allowance were overstated by $13.6 million, and $14.2 million, respectively, and the gross deferred tax liabilities were understated by $581 thousand as of December 31, 2013.

The Company does not consider the overstatements, or the understatements, to be material to the consolidated financial statements. As the Company maintains a full valuation allowance on its net deferred tax assets, the revisions did not require any changes to the Company's consolidated balance sheets, consolidated statements of operations, consolidated statements of cash flows, or consolidated statements of comprehensive income for fiscal year 2014 or any prior period. The corrected information will appear in a footnote to the consolidated financial statements of the Company in its upcoming Form 10-Q for the quarter ended June 30, 2015.

Capitalization

At June 30, 2015, the Company exceeded all of the regulatory capital minimums and Bank of Hampton Roads and Shore Bank were both considered "well capitalized" under all applicable regulatory capital standards. Our consolidated regulatory capital ratios were Common Equity Tier 1 Capital Ratio of 11.52%, Tier 1 Risk-Based Capital Ratio of 13.12%, Total Risk-Based Capital Ratio of 14.37%, and Tier 1 Leverage Ratio of 11.18%.
