ST. LOUIS, July 28, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Enterprise Financial Services Corp (NASDAQ:EFSC) (the “Company”) reported net income of $12.4 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2016, an increase of $1.3 million, or 12%, as compared to the linked first quarter. Net income per diluted share was $0.61 for the quarter ended June 30, 2016, an increase of $0.07 compared to $0.54 per diluted share for the linked first quarter. The increase from the linked quarter resulted from an increase in net interest income and higher noninterest income. Second quarter 2016 net income increased 42% compared to $8.7 million for the prior year period, and diluted earnings per share increased 42% from $0.43 reported a year ago. The increase in net income over the prior year was largely due to an increase in net interest income from strong loan growth, and a decrease in provision for loan losses on portfolio loans from improved credit quality.

On a core basis1, the Company reported net income of $9.9 million, or $0.49 per diluted share, for the quarter ended June 30, 2016, compared to $9.4 million, or $0.47 per diluted share, in the linked first quarter. Second quarter 2016 core net income increased 29% from $7.7 million for the prior year period, and diluted core earnings per share grew 29% from $0.38 for the prior year period. The increase for both periods was due to higher levels of net interest income from continued growth in earning asset balances, while the year over year results also benefited from lower provision for loan losses, partially offset by higher expenses to support revenue growth. Core net income for the quarter excludes the impact of Purchased credit impaired ("PCI") loan balances in excess of the contractual interest, executive severance of $0.3 million incurred in the second quarter, and other non-core expenses of $0.3 million.

The Company's Board of Directors approved an additional one cent per common share increase in the Company’s quarterly dividend to $0.11 per common share from $0.10 for the third quarter of 2016, payable on September 30, 2016 to shareholders of record as of September 15, 2016.

Peter Benoist, President and CEO, commented, “We’re pleased to report another strong quarter at Enterprise. Second quarter reported earnings set a new record for the company, representing a 1.33% return on average assets and 14.91% return on average tangible common equity. Core earnings continued to grow robustly, rising 29% over the prior year period.”

“Portfolio loans grew 13% over the past twelve months and 7% annualized during the quarter," said Benoist. “Our guidance for loan growth remains at 10% or higher for the year. Credit quality remained favorable, with both nonperforming loan and nonperforming asset ratios below 50 basis points.”

“From a broader perspective, the earnings results for this quarter, like the quarters that preceded it, illustrate the transformation in Enterprise’s core earnings power," noted Benoist. "In each of the past four quarters, core return on assets has exceeded one percent. Over the past eight quarters we’ve grown core net interest income 25% while holding noninterest expense increases to a modest 5%. This powerful operating leverage has driven our core earnings 58% higher, positioning Enterprise very well at mid-year with a strong balance sheet, growing earnings power, and a highly energized team.”

Net Interest Income

Net interest income in the second quarter increased $1.4 million from the linked first quarter, and $4.5 million from the prior year period due to strong growth in portfolio loan balances and increases in net interest margin discussed below. Net interest margin, on a fully tax equivalent basis, was 3.93% for the second quarter, compared to 3.87% in the linked first quarter, and 3.85% in the second quarter of 2015.

The yield on Portfolio loans improved to 4.20% in the second quarter, an increase of one basis point from the linked first quarter, and three basis points higher than the prior year period. In the second quarter of 2016, the yield on PCI loans was 30.07%, as compared to 22.67% in the linked quarter, and 18.33% in the prior year period.

The cost of interest-bearing liabilities increased two basis points to 0.50% in the second quarter of 2016 from 0.48% in the linked first quarter, but it was four basis points lower than 0.54% in the second quarter of 2015. The increase from the linked quarter was due to a shift in the composition of deposits. The decrease from the prior year period was primarily from lower rates on time deposit balances and a more favorable funding mix.

Core net interest margin1, defined as the net interest margin (fully tax equivalent), including contractual interest on PCI loans but excluding the incremental accretion on these loans, was as follows:

Core net interest income130,212 29,594 28,667 27,087 26,277

Core net interest income1 increased 15% compared to the prior year period due to strong portfolio loan growth and improvement in net interest margin. Core net interest income increased by $0.6 million to $30.2 million in the linked quarter, and Core net interest margin1 decreased two basis points to 3.52% primarily due to runoff of PCI loan balances. Core net interest margin expanded six basis points from the prior year quarter, primarily due to loan growth improving the earning asset mix, lower funding costs, and the aforementioned increase in the yield on portfolio loans. The Company continues to manage its balance sheet to grow core net interest income and expects to maintain core net interest margin over the coming quarters; however, pressure on funding costs and continued reductions in PCI loan balances could negate the expected trends in core net interest margin.

Portfolio loans

Portfolio loans increased to $2.9 billion at June 30, 2016, increasing $51 million, or 7% on an annualized basis, when compared to the linked quarter. On a year over year basis, portfolio loans increased $341 million, or 13%. The Company continues to expect loan growth at or above 10% for 2016.

During the quarter ended June 30, 2016, the Company grew loans in Commercial real estate, Residential real estate, and Consumer and other. However, Commercial and industrial ("C&I") loans decreased $5 million during the second quarter of 2016 compared to the linked first quarter and represented 53% of the Company's loan portfolio at June 30, 2016. Nonetheless, C&I loans remain the Company's primary focus resulting in growth of $211 million, or 16%, since June 30, 2015.

The Company continues to focus on originating high-quality C&I relationships, as they typically have variable interest rates and allow for cross selling opportunities involving other banking products. The Company's specialized lending products, particularly enterprise value lending and life insurance premium finance, have contributed to the growth in the C&I category. C&I loan growth also supports management's efforts to maintain the Company's asset sensitive interest rate risk position. At June 30, 2016, 64% of portfolio loans had variable interest rates, as compared to 62% for the linked quarter and prior year period.

The following table presents Portfolio loans with selected specialized lending detail for the most recent five quarters:

PCI loans

PCI loans totaled $56.5 million at June 30, 2016, a decrease of $6.9 million, or 44% on an annualized basis, from the linked first quarter, and $31.1 million, or 36%, from the prior year period, primarily as a result of principal paydowns and accelerated loan payoffs.

PCI loans contributed $2.8 million of net earnings in the second quarter of 2016, compared to $1.6 million in the linked first quarter, and $1.0 million in the prior year period. At June 30, 2016, the remaining accretable yield on the portfolio was estimated to be $18 million and the non-accretable difference was approximately $23 million. Accelerated cash flows and other incremental accretion from PCI loans was $3.6 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2016, $2.8 million for the linked quarter, and $3.0 million for the prior year quarter. The Company estimates 2016 income from accelerated cash flows and other incremental accretion to be between $9 million and $11 million.

Nonperforming loans increased 35% to $12.8 million at June 30, 2016, from $9.5 million at March 31, 2016, and decreased 27% from $17.5 million at June 30, 2015. During the quarter ended June 30, 2016, there were $6.9 million of additions to nonperforming loans, $2.7 million of other principal reductions, and $0.9 million assets transferred to performing. The additions to nonperforming loans consisted of three unrelated accounts. Despite the increase, Nonperforming loans were 0.44% of portfolio loans, and Nonperforming assets were 0.47% of total assets at June 30, 2016.

The Company's allowance for loan losses was 1.23% of loans at June 30, 2016, representing 277% of nonperforming loans, as compared to 1.21% at March 31, 2016, representing 361% of nonperforming loans, and 1.25% at June 30, 2015, representing 182% of nonperforming loans.

Deposits

Total deposits at June 30, 2016 were $3.0 billion, an increase of $96.5 million, or 13% on an annualized basis, from March 31, 2016, and $336.7 million, or 13%, from June 30, 2015. Core deposits, defined as total deposits excluding time deposits, were $2.5 billion at June 30, 2016, an increase of $35 million, or 6% on an annualized basis, from the linked quarter, and $326 million, or 15%, when compared to the prior year period. The overall positive trends in deposits reflect enhanced deposit gathering efforts in both commercial and business banking.

Noninterest-bearing deposits increased $33.5 million compared to March 31, 2016, and increased $94.9 million compared to the quarter ended June 30, 2015. The composition of Noninterest-bearing deposits remained stable at 25% of total deposits at June 30, 2016, compared to March 31, 2016 and June 30, 2015. The total cost of deposits increased two basis points to 0.36% compared to 0.34% at March 31, 2016, and declined three basis points since June 30, 2015.

Noninterest income

Deposit service charges for the second quarter of 2016 of $2.2 million grew 7% when compared to the linked quarter, and grew 10% when compared to the prior year quarter, due primarily to growth in customer relationships. Wealth management revenues were consistent at $1.6 million when compared to the linked first quarter, and decreased $0.1 million, when compared to the prior year period.

Trust assets under management were $897 million at June 30, 2016, an increase of $19.1 million, or 2%, when compared to March 31, 2016, and an increase of $7.7 million, or 1%, when compared to the prior year period. The increase from the linked quarter was largely due to growth in new clients.

Gains from state tax credit brokerage activities were $0.2 million for the second quarter of 2016, compared to $0.5 million for the linked first quarter, and $0.1 million in the second quarter of 2015. Sales of state tax credits can vary by quarter, but generally occur in the first and fourth quarters of the year depending on client demand and availability of the tax credits.

Other noninterest income increased 42% to $2.4 million compared to the linked quarter, and decreased 18% from the prior year period. The increase from the linked quarter was primarily due to allocation fees from tax credit projects. The decrease from the prior year period was due to fees earned from certain recoveries, higher allocation fees from tax credit projects, and swap fee income received during the second quarter of 2015.

Noninterest expenses

Noninterest expenses were $21.4 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2016, compared to $20.8 million for the quarter ended March 31, 2016, and $19.5 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2015. The increase over the linked quarter was due to $0.3 million from executive severance, and $0.3 million other expense. Core noninterest expenses1, which exclude the two aforementioned non-core items and expenses directly related to PCI assets, were $20.4 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2016, compared to $20.4 million for the linked quarter, and $19.0 million for the prior year period. The increase from the prior year period was largely due to an increase in Employee compensation and benefits from the addition of client service personnel to facilitate growth.

The Company's Core efficiency ratio1 was 56.3% for the quarter ended June 30, 2016, compared to 57.4% for the linked quarter, and 57.6% for the prior year period, and reflects overall expense management, in light of enhanced revenue growth trends.

The Company anticipates total noninterest expenses to be between $19.5 million and $21.5 million per quarter for 2016.

Other Business Results

During the quarter ended June 30, 2016, the Company repurchased 18,918 common shares at $26.46 per share under its publicly announced plan. The plan allows for repurchase of up to two million common shares, representing approximately 10% of the Company's currently outstanding shares.

The total risk based capital ratio1 was 12.16% at June 30, 2016, compared to 12.02% at March 31, 2016, and 12.68% at June 30, 2015. The Company's Common equity tier 1 capital ratio1 was 9.38% at June 30, 2016, compared to 9.20% at March 31, 2016, and 9.66% at June 30, 2015. The tangible common equity ratio1 was 9.08% at June 30, 2016, versus 8.87% at March 31, 2016, and 8.94% at June 30, 2015.

The increase in the tangible common equity ratio is due to continued earnings growth, despite asset growth of over $50 million. Capital ratios for the current quarter are based on the Basel III regulatory capital framework as applied to the Company’s current businesses and operations, and are subject to, among other things, completion and filing of the Company’s regulatory reports and ongoing regulatory review and implementation guidance. The attached tables contain a reconciliation of these ratios to U.S. GAAP financial measures.

The Company's effective tax rate was 35.3% for the quarter ended June 30, 2016 compared to 34.8% for the quarter ended March 31, 2016, and 35.3% for the quarter ended June 30, 2015.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures1

The Company's accounting and reporting policies conform to generally accepted accounting principles in the United States (“GAAP”) and the prevailing practices in the banking industry. However, the Company provides other financial measures, such as Core net income and net interest margin, and other Core performance measures, regulatory capital ratios, and the tangible common equity ratio, in this release that are considered “non-GAAP financial measures.” Generally, a non-GAAP financial measure is a numerical measure of a company's financial performance, financial position, or cash flows that exclude (or include) amounts that are included in (or excluded from) the most directly comparable measure calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP.

The Company considers its Core performance measures presented in this earnings release and the included tables as important measures of financial performance, even though they are non-GAAP measures, as they provide supplemental information by which to evaluate the impact of PCI loans and related income and expenses, the impact of certain non-comparable items, and the Company's operating performance on an ongoing basis. Core performance measures include contractual interest on PCI loans, but exclude incremental accretion on these loans. Core performance measures also exclude the Change in FDIC receivable, Gain or loss on sale of other real estate from PCI loans, and expenses directly related to PCI loans and other assets formerly covered under FDIC loss share agreements. Core performance measures also exclude certain other income and expense items, such as executive separation costs and the gain or loss on sale of investment securities, the Company believes to be not indicative of or useful to measure the Company's operating performance on an ongoing basis. The attached tables contain a reconciliation of these Core performance measures to the GAAP measures. The Company believes that the tangible common equity ratio provides useful information to investors about the Company's capital strength even though it is considered to be a non-GAAP financial measure and is not part of the regulatory capital requirements to which the Company is subject.

The Company believes these non-GAAP measures and ratios, when taken together with the corresponding GAAP measures and ratios, provide meaningful supplemental information regarding the Company's performance and capital strength. The Company's management uses, and believes that investors benefit from referring to, these non-GAAP measures and ratios in assessing the Company's operating results and related trends and when forecasting future periods. However, these non-GAAP measures and ratios should be considered in addition to, and not as a substitute for or preferable to, ratios prepared in accordance with GAAP. In the attached tables, the Company has provided a reconciliation of, where applicable, the most comparable GAAP financial measures and ratios to the non-GAAP financial measures and ratios, or a reconciliation of the non-GAAP calculation of the financial measure for the periods indicated.
