Veritex Holdings, Inc. Reports First Quarter Financial Results

DALLAS, April 26, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Veritex Holdings, Inc. (NASDAQ:VBTX), the holding company for Veritex Community Bank, announced the results today for the quarter ended March 31, 2016. The Company reported net income of $2.8 million or $0.26 diluted earnings per common share, compared to $2.6 million or $0.23 diluted earnings per common share for the quarter ended December 31, 2015 and $1.8 million or $0.19 diluted earnings per common share for the quarter ended March 31, 2015.

Malcolm Holland, the Company’s Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, said, “I am proud to report another consecutive quarter of record earnings driven by a record level of loan growth. Loans grew $64.8 million or 7.9%, an annualized rate of 32% this quarter.”

“Our pre-tax, pre-provision income has more than doubled to $5.1 million for the first quarter 2016 compared to $2.5 million in the first quarter of 2015. We continue to be effective at organically growing our loan portfolio, expanding fee-generating businesses, keeping interest rates paid on deposits flat while efficiently managing operating expenses. In addition, the successful IBT acquisition and the cost savings achieved from the integration of the IBT business onto our platform contributed to our growth in pre-tax pre-provision income,” stated Mr. Holland.

Mr. Holland continued, “Loan demand is robust and our pipelines are strong. I remain extremely optimistic about our growth opportunities through 2016. Our first quarter results put us on track to deliver another great year.”

Result of Operations for the Three Months Ended March 31, 2016

Net Interest Income

For the three months ended March 31, 2016, net interest income before provision for loan losses was $9.7 million and net interest margin was 3.87% compared to $9.0 million and 3.78%, respectively, for the three months ended December 31, 2015. Net interest income increased $677,000 primarily due to increased interest income on loans as average loan balances increased $65.1 million from organic loan growth during the three months ended March 31, 2016 compared to the three months ended December 31, 2015. The net interest margin increased 0.09% from the three months ended December 31, 2015 as the average rate paid on interest-bearing liabilities decreased 0.02% to 0.67% for the three months ended March 31, 2016 from 0.69% for the three months ended December 31, 2015. The decline in rate is primarily due to a decrease in the average rate paid on money market accounts. Also contributing to the increase in net interest margin, the average yield on loans increased 0.02% to 4.85% from 4.83% for the three months ended December 31, 2015, primarily due to an increase in average interest yield on real estate loans.

Compared to the three months ended March 31, 2015, net interest income before provision for loan losses increased by $2.8 million from $6.9 million to $9.7 million for the three months ended March 31, 2016. The increase in net interest income before provision for loan losses was primarily due to increased interest income on loans as average loan balances increased by $243.0 million compared to March 31, 2015 due to the loans acquired in the acquisition of IBT Bancorp, Inc. (“IBT”), which closed in July 2015, and organic loan growth. Average loan balance grew $90.5 million from the acquisition of IBT and $152.5 million from organic growth. The net interest margin improved 0.05% to 3.87% from 3.82% for the same three months in 2015. The rate paid on interest-bearing liabilities decreased from 0.71% for the three months ended March 31, 2015 to 0.67% for the three months ended March 31, 2016 primarily due to a decrease in the average rate paid on money market accounts. Average yield on loans was 4.85% for both the three months ended March 31, 2016 and the three months ended March 31, 2015.

Noninterest Income

Noninterest income for the three months ended March 31, 2016 was $1.4 million, an increase of $166,000 or 13.8% compared to the three months ended December 31, 2015. The increase was primarily the result of a non-recurring gain on the sale of a loan acquired in the IBT acquisition of $193,000 and increased gains on the sales of mortgage loans of $83,000 which was partially offset by the decreased sale of SBA loans of $44,000 and the bi-annual dividends received on Federal Reserve Bank stock of $85,000 in December 2015.

Compared to the three months ended March 31, 2015, noninterest income grew $607,000 or 79.2%. The increase was primarily a result of the following: increased gains on sale of SBA loans and SBA servicing fees totaling $308,000; increased deposit service charges and fees on deposit accounts of $189,000 primarily related to the deposit accounts acquired with the acquisition of IBT; and a non-recurring gain on the sale of a loan acquired in the IBT acquisition of $193,000.

Noninterest Expense

Noninterest expense was $6.0 million for the three months ended March 31, 2016, compared to noninterest expense of $5.7 million for the three months ended December 31, 2015, an increase of $241,000 or 4.2%. The increase was primarily due to increases in employee expense of $155,000 related to annual merit raises, bonuses, and seasonal payroll taxes. Professional services fees of $86,000 primarily related to annual reporting requirements for the Company also contributed to the increase.

Compared to the three months ended March 31, 2015, noninterest expense increased $893,000 or 17.6%. This increase was in large part due to increases in salary and employee benefit expenses of $517,000, and other operating expense increases of $123,000 primarily related to the acquisition of IBT. Write-downs of other asset owned of $62,000 for the three months ended March 31, 2016 also contributed to the increase as there were no such write-downs for the three months ended March 31, 2015.

Income Taxes

Income tax expense for the three months ended March 31, 2016 totaled $1.4 million, an increase of $127,000 or 9.7% compared to the three months ended December 31, 2015. The Company’s effective tax rate was approximately 33.7% and 33.6% for the three months ended March 31, 2016 and the three months ended December 31, 2015, respectively.

Compared to the three months ended March 31, 2015, income tax expense increased $823,000 or 135.6% for the three months ended March 31, 2016. The Company’s effective tax rate was approximately 33.7% for the three months ended March 31, 2016 compared to 25.0% for the three months ended March 31, 2015. The increase in the effective tax rate from the three months ended March 31, 2015 was primarily due to the effect of a net discrete tax benefit of $186,000 associated with the recognition of non-qualified stock option related deferred tax assets during the first quarter of 2015.

Financial Condition

Loans (excluding loans held for sale and deferred loan fees) at March 31, 2016 were $885.4 million, an increase of $64.8 million or 7.9% compared to $820.6 million at December 31, 2015. The increase from December 31, 2015 was primarily the result of the continued execution and success of our organic growth strategy.

Loans (excluding loans held for sale and deferred loan fees) increased $269.9 million or 43.9% compared to $615.5 million at March 31, 2015. The acquisition of IBT represented approximately 33.4% of the increase from the prior year. The additional growth of $179.8 million was achieved through organic growth.

Deposits at March 31, 2016 were $946.1 million, an increase of $77.7 million or 8.9% compared to $868.4 million at December 31, 2015 primarily due to growth in retail money market accounts of $36.2 million and wholesale deposits of $46.4 million.

Deposits increased $277.8 million or 41.6% compared to $668.3 million at March 31, 2015. The increase from March 31, 2015 was due to the acquisition of IBT’s deposits of approximately $98.3 million, customer deposit growth of $103.0 million and wholesale deposit growth of $76.5 million.

Advances from the Federal Home Loan Bank were $38.4 million at March 31, 2016 compared to $28.4 million at December 31, 2015 and $15.0 million at March 31, 2015.

Asset Quality

Nonperforming assets totaled $1.2 million or 0.11% of total assets at March 31, 2016 compared to $1.1 million or 0.10% of total assets at December 31, 2015. Nonperforming assets were $941,000 or 0.12% of total assets at March 31, 2015.

The allowance for loan losses was 0.83% of total loans at March 31, 2016 and December 31, 2015 compared to 0.98% of total loans at March 31, 2015. The decrease in allowance for loan losses as a percentage of total loans compared to March 31, 2015 was primarily due to the recording of IBT acquired loans at an estimated fair value in the later part of 2015 with no significant additional loan loss reserves since the acquisition.

Other real estate owned totaled $493,000 at March 31, 2016 and December 31, 2015 compared to $548,000 at March 31, 2015. Nonaccrual loans were $525,000 at March 31, 2016 compared to $593,000 at December 31, 2015 and $323,000 at March 31, 2015.

The provision for loan losses for the three months ended March 31, 2016 totaled $845,000 compared to $610,000 for three months ended December 31, 2015 and $110,000 for the three months ended March 31, 2015. The increase in provision for loan losses was due to general provision requirements related to loan growth.

In the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2015, the Company disclosed a borrowing relationship comprised of loans to multiple affiliated funds in which one of the funds had publicly disclosed that it was subject to ongoing SEC investigations and that the Federal Bureau of Investigation served a search warrant in February 2016 at the fund’s corporate offices in connection with a law enforcement investigation. The borrowing relationship consists of four loans to five affiliated funds secured by various assets, including multiple notes made to numerous residential developers in favor of the funds and further secured by deeds of trust. These loans are made to separate and distinct borrowing entities, and are not dependent on each other for repayment. Each loan has specific collateral note assignments that relate to particular single-family residential projects in either the Houston, Dallas, Austin or San Antonio markets. The specific collateral note assignments are not cross-collateralized. As of March 31, 2016, $12.7 million of the borrowing relationship was classified as Pass reflecting the continued ability to pay according to the contractual terms of the loans and the strength of collateral. The Company determined that $10.3 million of loans affiliated with this borrowing relationship demonstrated weakness consistent with the Special Mention classification, and the Company downgraded the notes accordingly. Subsequent to March 31, 2016, the Company further downgraded a $6.0 million note classified as Special Mention to the Substandard classification. The Company believes that the value of collateral securing each loan is well in excess of loan amounts with the loan to value ratios less than 50%. The borrowing relationship is not considered to be impaired and no specific reserves have been established at this time.

The following table shows loans for the past two quarters and most recent balance to date in the above mentioned borrowing relationship.

(1) Total loans does not include loans held for sale and deferred fees.

Deferred fees were $65,000 at March 31, 2016, $61,000 at December 31, 2015, $55,000 at September 30, 2015, $49,000 at June 30, 2015, and $50,000 at March 31, 2015.

(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)”.

Tangible book value per common share(2) $ 9.89 $ 9.59 $ 9.44 $ 9.36 $ 9.15

(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.
