LOS ANGELES, April 18, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- BBCN Bancorp, Inc. (the “Company”) (NASDAQ:BBCN), the holding company of BBCN Bank (the “Bank”), today reported net income of $23.6 million, or $0.30 per diluted common share, for the three months ended March 31, 2016. This compares with net income of $22.9 million, or $0.29 per diluted common share, for the preceding 2015 fourth quarter and $21.4 million, or $0.27 per diluted common share, for the year-ago first quarter.

“BBCN’s 2016 first quarter results reflect another quarter of solid operational performance,” said Kevin S. Kim, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of BBCN Bancorp, Inc. “While new loan originations are down from the seasonally higher and record fourth quarter, we are pleased with the improved mix of new loans with increased contributions of commercial and consumer loans. We are also seeing stability in the average yield on new loans, which was up 5 basis points linked quarter, and our core net interest margin is holding relatively steady, increasing 1 basis point over the preceding fourth quarter. Notwithstanding lower gains on sales of SBA loans in the first quarter and merger-related expenses, we continued to demonstrate the stability and strength of our earnings platform with net income increasing to $23.6 million for the three months ended March 31, 2016.

“Considering BBCN’s consistent financial performance, our ongoing progress in becoming a more diversified financial institution and the pending combination with the second strongest commercial lender in our space, we remain optimistic about the prospects of our organization and believe we are well positioned to deliver improved value to our customers, employees and shareholders,” said Kim.

Operating Results for the 2016 First Quarter

Net interest income for the three months ended March 31, 2016, December 31, 2015, and March 31, 2015 include the following pre-tax acquisition accounting adjustments related to past acquisitions:

Net Interest Income and Net Interest Margin. Net interest income before provision for loan losses for the 2016 first quarter totaled $71.6 million, down slightly from $71.8 million in the preceding 2015 fourth quarter, reflecting a 15% reduction in acquisition accounting adjustments versus the preceding 2015 fourth quarter and a 2 basis point decline in yields on interest earning assets, which more than offset the higher interest income earned on the Company’s steadily growing base of loans receivable. Compared with the prior-year period, net interest income before provision for loan losses rose 10% over $65.1 million in the 2015 first quarter, benefiting from a 12% increase in average loans receivable and a 35% increase in securities available for sale.

The net interest margin (net interest income divided by average interest earning assets) and the impact of acquisition accounting adjustments are summarized in the following table:

Three Months Ended
3/31/2016 12/31/2015 change 3/31/2015 change

Acquisition accounting adjustments0.24 0.29 (0.05) 0.26 (0.02)
Net interest margin3.84% 3.88% (0.04)% 3.87% (0.03)%

The net interest margin for the 2016 first quarter was 3.84%, down 4 basis points from the preceding fourth quarter and down 3 basis points from the year-ago first quarter. On a core basis, excluding the effect of acquisition accounting adjustments, the net interest margin for the 2016 first quarter was relatively stable, up 1 basis point from the preceding fourth quarter and down 1 basis point from the year-ago first quarter.

The weighted average yield on loans and the impact of acquisition accounting adjustments are summarized in the following table:

Three Months Ended
3/31/2016 12/31/2015 change 3/31/2015 change
Weighted average yield on loans, excluding the effect of acquisition accounting adjustments4.66% 4.64% 0.02% 4.71% (0.05)%

Weighted average yield on loans4.95% 4.99% (0.04)% 5.03% (0.10)%

The weighted average yield on loans for the 2016 first quarter declined 4 basis points from the preceding 2015 fourth quarter, but increased 2 basis points when excluding the effect of acquisition accounting adjustments. Compared with the prior-year period, the weighted average yield on loans decreased 10 basis points, or 5 basis points on a core basis excluding the effect of acquisition accounting adjustments.

The weighted average yield on new loans originated during the 2016 first quarter was 4.29%, up 5 basis points from 4.24% in the preceding fourth quarter and up 22 basis points from 4.07% in the year-ago first quarter.

The weighted average cost of deposits for the 2016 first quarter increased 3 basis points from the preceding fourth quarter and 8 basis points from the year-ago first quarter. The Company noted that there was virtually no impact on the weighted average cost of deposits noted above from the effect of premium amortization on time deposits assumed in acquisitions.

Noninterest Income. Noninterest income for the 2016 first quarter totaled $8.8 million, down from $11.0 million in both the preceding 2015 fourth quarter and 2015 first quarter. Aside from the normal range of fluctuations in service fees on deposit accounts and other income and fees, the Company posted lower-than-recent levels of gains on sales of SBA loans of $1.8 million in the 2016 quarter, versus $3.1 million and $3.0 million in the 2015 fourth and first quarters, respectively. Additional details relating to quarterly sales of SBA loans is provided in the balance sheet summary discussion below.

Total new loan originations during the 2016 first quarter amounted to $333.5 million, including SBA loan originations of $54.3 million. Sales of SBA loans to the secondary market and gains derived from those sales are based substantially on the production of SBA 7(a) loans, which amounted to $37.6 million for the first quarter of 2016, compared with $39.4 million for the preceding 2015 fourth quarter and $42.9 million for the 2015 first quarter.

Credit Quality

The provision for loan losses for the 2016 first quarter was $500,000, compared with $4.9 million for the preceding 2015 fourth quarter and $1.5 million for the prior-year first quarter.

For a more detailed understanding of the changes in the Allowance for Loan and Lease Losses (“ALLL”), the composition of the ALLL has been segmented for disclosure purposes between loans accounted for under the amortized cost method (referred to as “Legacy Loans”) and loans acquired through the Center Financial, Pacific International and Foster transactions (referred to as “Acquired Loans”). The Acquired Loans are further segregated between performing and credit impaired loans.

The composition of the ALLL as of March 31, 2016, December 31, 2015, and March 31, 2015 is as follows:

(dollars in thousands)3/31/2016 12/31/2015 3/31/2015
Legacy Loans (1)$ 64,016 $ 63,309 $ 55,397
Acquired Loans - Performing (2) 963 1,117 1,550
Acquired Loans - Credit Impaired (2) 11,877 11,982 12,647
Total ALLL$ 76,856 $ 76,408 $ 69,594
Loans Receivable$ 6,371,935 $ 6,248,341 $ 5,710,639
ALLL coverage ratio 1.21% 1.22% 1.22%

(1) Legacy Loans include loans originated by the Bank’s predecessor bank, loans originated by BBCN and loans that were acquired and that have been refinanced as new loans.
(2) Acquired Loans were marked to fair value at acquisition date, and the allowance for loan losses reflect provisions for credit deterioration since the acquisition date.

Following are the components of criticized loan balances as of March 31, 2016, December 31, 2015, and March 31, 2015:

Nonaccrual loans at March 31, 2016 totaled $43.5 million, or 0.68% of loans receivable.

For the 2016 first quarter, the Company recorded net charge offs of $52,000, or 0.00% of average loans receivable on an annualized basis.
