Hanmi Reports Strong Loan and Deposit Growth for Third Quarter 2016

2016 Third Quarter Highlights:

  • Net income of $13.1 million or $0.41 per diluted share, down $0.03 from the prior quarter primarily due to lower disposition gains on PCI loans and finalization of prior year FDIC loss share claims, partially offset by gain on sale of real estate
  • Money market and savings deposits grew 21% from the prior quarter leading to a 5% increase in total deposits quarter-over-quarter and 7% year-over-year
  • Loans receivable of $3.55 billion, up 3% quarter-over-quarter and 17% year-over-year

LOS ANGELES, Oct. 18, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Hanmi Financial Corporation (NASDAQ:HAFC) (or “Hanmi”), the holding company for Hanmi Bank (the “Bank”), today reported third quarter net income of $13.1 million, or $0.41 per diluted share, down $0.03 per diluted share from the prior quarter primarily due to $1.2 million lower disposition gains on PCI loans and a $1.4 million charge to finalize prior year FDIC loss share claims, partially offset by a $1.0 million gain on the sale of a recently consolidated branch facility.

For the first nine months of 2016, net income increased 7.9% to $42.1 million, or $1.31 per diluted share, compared with $39.0 million, or $1.22 per diluted share, for the first nine months of 2015.

Mr. C. G. Kum, President and Chief Executive Officer, said, “Hanmi’s performance in the third quarter was highlighted by solid loan growth coupled with successful deposit gathering activities. Total loans receivable increased 3% compared with the prior quarter and 17% from a year ago. We are achieving this growth while maintaining our disciplined underwriting standards and strong overall asset quality. Weighted average loan-to-value and debt coverage ratios on new commercial real estate loan originations for the third quarter were 50.8% and 1.73 times, respectively. I am also pleased with our deposit franchise as our money market and savings balances grew 21% in the quarter, resulting in total deposits increasing 5% for the quarter and 7% year-over-year. Importantly, noninterest-bearing deposits increased 4% in the quarter and were up 11% from a year ago.”

Mr. Kum continued, “We remain highly focused on driving profitable growth across the enterprise. Considering the flat yield curve environment, our third quarter net interest margin of 3.86% remains strong. In addition, through the first nine months of the year, we have successfully reduced total noninterest expense by approximately 6% compared with the prior year. To further enhance operational efficiencies, we completed the closure and consolidation of two branches during the third quarter in Cerritos and Garden Grove, California and recently opened a new branch in Glenview, Illinois. Overall, our third quarter results were solid and I expect a strong finish to the year.”

Results of Operations
Net interest income was $39.6 million for the 2016 third quarter compared with $40.0 million for the 2016 second quarter. Although average loans increased 4.5% quarter-over-quarter, average money market and savings increased 20.9% and the average rate paid on these deposits increased 12 basis points leading to the slight decline in net interest income. Year-to-date, net interest income improved 6.9% to $118.1 million compared with $110.5 million for the first nine months of 2015 principally because of the increase in loans.

Net interest margin (on a taxable equivalent basis) was 3.86% for the 2016 third quarter, down 16 basis points from 4.02% for the 2016 second quarter. The decline was primarily due to lower acquisition accounting effects (seven basis points), lower loan yields (two basis points) and higher interest-bearing deposit rates (three basis points). For the first nine months of 2016, net interest margin was 3.95% compared with 3.89% for the first nine months of 2015.

For the third quarter of 2016, Hanmi recorded a negative provision for loan losses of $1.5 million, compared with a negative $3.7 million for the third quarter last year. For the first nine months of 2016 and 2015, the negative loan loss provision was $4.5 million and $7.8 million, respectively.

Third quarter noninterest income decreased $0.7 million, or 7.5%, to $8.7 million from $9.4 million for the second quarter of 2016 primarily due to a $1.2 million decrease in disposition gains on PCI loans and a $0.2 million decrease in gain on sales of SBA loans, partially offset by a $1.0 million gain from the sale of a recently consolidated branch facility (recorded in other operating income). Disposition gains on PCI loans were $0.8 million for the third quarter of 2016, compared with $2.0 million for the prior quarter, and $4.3 million for the third quarter last year. PCI loans increased $0.5 million for the third quarter of 2016, while they declined $4.8 million for the second quarter of 2016 and decreased $8.7 million for the third quarter of 2015. Gains on sales of SBA loans were $1.6 million for the third quarter 2016, compared with $1.8 million for the second quarter of 2016 and $1.6 million for the year-ago period as the volume of SBA loans sold increased to $24.1 million from $20.2 million for the preceding quarter and $20.6 million for the same quarter last year. Other operating income, which included $1.0 million gain on the sale of a branch facility, was $2.3 million for the third quarter of 2016, compared with $1.7 million for the second quarter of 2016 and $1.1 million for the same quarter last year.

For the first nine months of 2016, noninterest income decreased $10.5 million, or 29.6%, to $25.0 million from $35.5 million for the same period last year primarily due to a $6.1 million reduction in gain on sale of securities, a $4.6 million decrease in disposition gains on PCI loans and a $0.6 million decrease in gain on sales of SBA loans. Sales of securities in the first nine months of 2016 were de minimis, while securities transactions resulted in gains of $6.1 million for the same period last year. Disposition gains on PCI loans were $3.4 million for the first nine months of 2016, compared with $8.0 million for the same period last year as PCI loans decreased $4.5 million for the first nine months of 2016 and declined $19.4 million for the same period last year. Gains on sales of SBA loans were $4.2 million for the first nine months of 2016, compared with $4.9 million for the first nine months of 2015 as the volume of SBA loans sold decreased to $56.7 million from $59.8 million for the same period last year.

Noninterest expense for the third quarter increased $0.5 million, or 1.7%, to $28.3 million from $27.9 million for the second quarter primarily due to a $1.4 million expense related to the finalization of prior year FDIC loss share claims, which was recorded in other operating expenses. This was partially offset by lower professional fees.

Noninterest expense decreased $0.4 million, or 1.3%, from $28.7 million for the third quarter last year primarily due to lower occupancy and equipment expense, coupled with lower salaries and employee benefits expense related to the branch closure and consolidations completed in the third quarter last year, as well as lower professional fees. This was partially offset by higher expenses related to the aforementioned FDIC loss share claims, which was recorded in other operating expense.

For the first nine months of 2016, noninterest expense decreased $4.9 million, or 5.6%, to $82.3 million from $87.1 million for the same period last year primarily due to reductions in merger and integration costs, professional fees and data processing fees related to the August 2014 acquisition of Central Bancorp, Inc. (“CBI”), along with lower salaries and employee benefits and occupancy and equipment expense from the branch closure and consolidation completed in the third quarter last year. As a result of careful management of noninterest expense, coupled with the improvements in revenue from the growth in earning assets, the efficiency ratio improved to 57.47% for the first nine months of 2016 from 59.65% for the first nine months of 2015.

Hanmi recorded a provision for income taxes of $8.2 million for the third quarter of 2016, representing an effective tax rate of 38.6%, compared with $8.9 million or 38.5% for the preceding quarter and $10.6 million or 43.1% for the third quarter of 2015. For the first nine months of 2016, Hanmi recorded a provision for income taxes of $23.3 million, representing an effective tax rate of 35.6%, compared with $27.7 million or 41.6% for the same period last year.

Classified loans were $36.9 million, or 1.04% of loans, at September 30, 2016, compared with $27.4 million, or 0.79% of loans, at June 30, 2016, and $40.0 million, or 1.31% of loans, a year ago. Nonperforming assets were $21.9 million at the end of the third quarter of 2016, or 0.50% of assets, compared with 0.54% of assets at the end of the prior quarter and 0.88% of assets at the end of the same quarter last year.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Tangible Common Equity to Tangible Assets Ratio

Tangible common equity to tangible assets ratio is supplemental financial information determined by a method other than in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”). This non-GAAP measure is used by management in the analysis of Hanmi’s capital strength. Tangible equity is calculated by subtracting goodwill and other intangible assets from stockholders’ equity. Banking and financial institution regulators also exclude goodwill and other intangible assets from stockholders’ equity when assessing the capital adequacy of a financial institution. Management believes the presentation of this financial measure excluding the impact of these items provides useful supplemental information that is essential to a proper understanding of the capital strength of Hanmi. This disclosure should not be viewed as a substitution for results determined in accordance with GAAP, nor is it necessarily comparable to non-GAAP performance measures that may be presented by other companies.

The following table reconciles this non-GAAP performance measure to the GAAP performance measure for the periods indicated:
