Veritex Holdings, Inc. Reports First Quarter Financial Results

DALLAS, April 24, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Veritex Holdings, Inc. (NASDAQ:VBTX), the holding company for Veritex Community Bank, announced today the results for the quarter ended March 31, 2017. The Company reported net income of $3.1 million, or $0.20 diluted earnings per share (EPS), compared to $3.2 million, or $0.27 diluted EPS, for the quarter ended December 31, 2016 and $2.8 million, or $0.26 diluted EPS, for the quarter ended March 31, 2016. Total assets increased $113.5 million to $1.5 billion from $1.4 billion for the quarter ended December 31, 2016, representing a 32.2% annualized growth rate, total loans increased $29.1 million to $1.0 billion from $991.9 million for the quarter ended December 31, 2016 representing a 11.7% annualized growth rate, and total deposits increased $102.1 million to $1.2 billion from $1.1 billion for the quarter ended December 31, 2016 representing a 36.5% annualized growth rate.

Malcolm Holland, the Company’s Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, said, “I am pleased with the continued execution of our strategic plan, both on the acquisition and organic growth fronts. On the acquisition front, the merger with Sovereign Bancorp Inc. remains on track and we anticipate a second quarter closing. Veritex and Sovereign integration teams completed the planning phase and are looking forward to a smooth closing and conversion process. Our shareholders and the shareholders of Sovereign approved the merger at the respective special meetings of shareholders on April 6, 2017. The Texas Department of Banking granted its approval of our regulatory application and we are prepared to close following approval from the Federal Reserve.”

“In addition to our efforts on the Sovereign acquisition this quarter, we continue to make meaningful investments to further enhance our organic growth. On March 1, 2017 we welcomed to our team Mr. Bob Stone as Executive Vice President and Managing Director of Commercial Real Estate Lending. Mr. Stone is a successful and well respected lending executive who brings 40 years of commercial real estate lending expertise. We believe he will add tremendous value to our organization over the coming years.” Mr. Holland continued, “In addition, we added two other seasoned lenders to our commercial lending team. In January, we announced the opening of our new branch in the attractive Turtle Creek area of Dallas, adding to our network of relationship-driven banking centers targeting private client and small to medium-sized businesses. We are excited about these developments and the positive impact they will have on our franchise and future growth plans.”

Mr. Holland also noted, “Even with significant ongoing investments in our infrastructure and expanding growth opportunities, we reported an increase in pre-tax, pre-provision income over both the prior quarter and prior year. Net income declined over the prior quarter primarily due to increased provision expense related to four isolated credit relationships totaling $603 thousand that were charged off in March. Our low level of nonperforming loans and past due credits continues to reflect ‘best in class’ status.”

Result of Operations for the Three Months Ended March 31, 2017

Net Interest Income

For the three months ended March 31, 2017, net interest income before provision for loan losses was $11.3 million and net interest margin was 3.21% compared to $10.5 million and 3.44%, respectively, for the three months ended December 31, 2016. Net interest income increased $733 thousand primarily due to an increase of $410 thousand in interest income on deposits in other banks as average interest-earning deposits in other banks increased $147.7 million. This increase was driven by proceeds of our public offering of common stock of $95 million which settled on December 20, 2016 and excess cash balances resulting from growth in customer deposits. In addition, the change in net interest income resulted from increased interest income on loans of $199 thousand as average loan balances increased $35.6 million due to organic loan growth during the three months ended March 31, 2017 compared to the three months ended December 31, 2016. The net interest margin decreased 23 basis points from the three months ended December 31, 2016. The decrease in net interest margin was partially due to a decrease in the average yield in interest-earning assets to 3.73% for the three months ended March 31, 2017 from 4.02% for the three months ended December 31, 2016. This was a result of interest-bearing deposits at other banks representing 20.8% of average interest earning assets for the three months ending March 31, 2017 compared to 12.2% of average interest earning assets at December 31, 2016. Interest-bearing deposits at other banks increased $147.7 million to $295.6 million with an average yield of 0.84% compared to $148.0 million with a 0.54% yield.

Net interest income before provision for loan losses increased by $1.6 million from $9.7 million to $11.3 million for the three months ended March 31, 2017 as compared to the same period during 2016. The increase in net interest income before provision for loan losses was primarily due to $1.5 million in increased interest income on loans resulting from average loan balance increases of $150.8 million compared to March 31, 2016. The net interest margin declined to 3.21% from the three months ended March 31, 2017 from 3.87% for the same three-month period in 2016. The 66 basis point decrease in net interest margin was partially due to increases in interest-bearing deposits in other banks and a resulting change in mix as described above for the three months ended March 31, 2017 compared to interest-bearing deposits in other banks of $70.1 million with an average yield of 0.53% representing 7.0% for the same period in 2016. The increase in interest-bearing deposits in other banks was primarily driven by proceeds of our public offering of common stock and increases in customer deposits as described above. In addition, the average yield on loans decreased 7 basis points to 4.78% for the three months ended March 31, 2017 from 4.85% for the same period in 2016. Decline in loan yields was the result of competitive pricing pressure and resulting yields on new loan originations and renewals below average yield of amortizing or paid-off loans. Also impacting the net interest margin decline was the increasing rate paid on interest-bearing liabilities. The rate paid on interest-bearing liabilities increased from 0.67% for the three months ended March 31, 2016 to 0.81% for the same period in 2017. The 14 basis point increase was related to an increase in premium money market accounts of $589.5 million with an average rate of 0.87% representing 65.2% of interest bearing liabilities for the three months ended March 31, 2017 compared to $329.7 million with an average rate of 0.73% representing 50.1% of interest bearing liabilities.

Noninterest Income

Noninterest income for the three months ended March 31, 2017 was $1.5 million, a decrease of $289 thousand or 15.8% compared to the three months ended December 31, 2016. The net decrease was primarily a result of decreased gains on sale of Small Business Administration (“SBA”) loans of $114 thousand, decreased gains on sale of mortgage loans of $109 thousand, and a decrease in dividend income from the bi-annual dividends received on Federal Reserve Bank stock of $100 thousand received and included in other noninterest income in the three months ended December 31, 2016.

Compared to the three months ended March 31, 2016, noninterest income grew $162 thousand or 11.8%. The increase was primarily a result of an increase in ATM and debit card fees of $70 thousand, increased gain on sale of SBA loans of $255 thousand, and increased gains on sale of mortgage loans of $23 thousand. In addition, the net gains were offset by the reduction in gain on sale of loans due to the one-time $193 thousand gain on sale of loans acquired with the IBT loan portfolio in March 31, 2016 which was not a factor as of March 31, 2017.

Noninterest Expense

Noninterest expense was $7.5 million for the three months ended March 31, 2017, compared to noninterest expense of $7.1 million for the three months ended December 31, 2016, an increase of $366 thousand or 5.2%. The increase was primarily due to increases in salaries and employee benefits and professional fees.

Salaries and employee benefits expense was $3.9 million for the three months ended March 31, 2017, compared to $3.7 million for the three months ended December 31, 2016, an increase of $258 thousand or 7.1%. The increase was primarily attributable to employee compensation increases of $137 thousand resulting from annual merit increases and the addition of four new full-time equivalent employees and $168 thousand relating to an increase in payroll taxes on annual bonuses. Additionally, Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (“FDIC”) assessment fees increased $45 thousand and lease expenses increased $52 thousand primarily due to the opening of the Turtle Creek branch in January 2017. Nonrecurring acquisition related costs were $88 thousand for the three months ended March 31, 2017.

Compared to the three months ended March 31, 2016, noninterest expense increased $1.5 million, or 24.7%, to $7.5 million for the three months ended March 31, 2017. The increase was primarily due to increases in salaries and employee benefits and in professional fees.

Salaries and employee benefits expense was $3.9 million for the three months ended March 31, 2017, compared to $3.2 million for the three months ended March 31, 2016, an increase of $734 thousand or 23.1%. The increase was primarily attributable to employee compensation increases of $411 thousand resulting from annual merit increases and the addition of twelve new full-time equivalent employees and a $204 thousand increase in incentive costs primarily relating to lender incentives.

Additionally, FDIC assessment fees increased $122 thousand, occupancy expenses increased $125 thousand, and professional expenses increased $225 thousand primarily due to an increase in professional services relating to the Sovereign merger as well as director compensation costs compared to the three months ended March 31, 2016.

Income Taxes

Income tax expense for the three months ended March 31, 2017 totaled $1.4 million, a decrease of $280 thousand, or 17.2%, compared to the three months ended December 31, 2016. The Company’s effective tax rate, before reporting the net impact of discrete items, was approximately 34.2% and 34.3% for the three months ended March 31, 2017 and the three months ended December 31, 2016, respectively. The Company’s provision for income taxes for the three months ended March 31, 2017, was impacted by a net discrete tax benefit of $172 thousand associated with the recognition of excess tax benefit realized on share-based payment awards. The Company’s effective tax rate, after including the net impact of discrete tax items, was approximately 30.4% and 34.3%, respectively for the three months ended March 31, 2017 and the three months ended December 31, 2016.

Compared to the three months ended March 31, 2016, income tax expense decreased $80 thousand, or 5.6%, to $1.4 million for the three months ended March 31, 2017. The Company’s effective tax rate, before reporting the net impact of discrete items, was approximately 34.2% for the three months ended March 31, 2017 compared to 34.1%. The change in income tax expense from the three months ended March 31, 2016 was primarily due to the $205 thousand increase in net operating income offset by the impact of the net discrete tax benefit of $172 thousand during the three months ended March 31, 2017 compared to the $16 thousand net discrete item during the three months ended March 31, 2016. The Company’s effective tax rate, after including the net impact of discrete tax items, was approximately 30.4% and 33.7% for the three months ended March 31, 2017 and the three months ended March 31, 2016.

Financial Condition

Loans (excluding loans held for sale and deferred loan fees) at March 31, 2017 were $1.0 billion, an increase of $29.1 million or 2.9% compared to $991.9 million at December 31, 2016. The net increase from December 31, 2016 was primarily the result of gross loan growth of $135.2 million which was offset by $106.1 million in loan pay downs and payoffs during the first quarter.

Loans (excluding loans held for sale and deferred loan fees) increased $135.6 million, or 15.3%, compared to $885.4 million at March 31, 2016. The growth over March 31, 2016 is due to the continued execution and success of our organic growth strategy.

Deposits at March 31, 2017 were $1.2 billion, an increase of $102.1 million, or 9.1%, compared to $1.1 billion at December 31, 2016. The increase from December 31, 2016 was primarily due to an increase of $81.3 million in savings accounts, $10.6 million in non-interest bearing deposits, $10.3 million in business checking, and $4.6 million in money market accounts. The increase in deposits was primarily due to a single customer deposit of $71.4 million; the remaining deposit increase was due to organic growth, partially offset by wholesale deposit repayment of $4.0 million.

Deposits increased $275.6 million, or 29.1%, compared to $946.1 million at March 31, 2016. The increase from March 31, 2016 was primarily due to an increase in financial institution money market accounts of $163.7 million resulting from the launch of a correspondent banking group, organic growth in retail and business money market accounts of $52.9 million, growth in time deposits of $33.8 million, and an increase of $41.7 million in noninterest bearing deposits which was partially offset by decreases in wholesale deposits of $104.2 million.

Advances from the Federal Home Loan Bank were $38.3 million at March 31, 2017 and December 31, 2016 compared to $38.4 million at March 31, 2016.

Asset Quality

The allowance for loan losses was 0.86%, 0.86%, and 0.83% of total loans at March 31, 2017, December 31, 2016, and March 31, 2016, respectively. The allowance for loan losses as a percentage of total loans over the three quarter periods was determined by the qualitative factors around the nature, volume and mix of the loan portfolio.

The provision for loan losses for the three months ended March 31, 2017 totaled $890 thousand compared to $440 thousand for three months ended December 31, 2016. The increase in provision for loan losses for the three months ended March 31, 2017 compared to December 31, 2016 was due to an increase in general provision requirements related to the charge-off of five C&I credits across four lending relationships totaling $603 thousand. The lending relationships were each in different industries with a unique set of circumstances that resulted in the decision to charge-off these loans. In addition, there was an increase in general provision requirements as loans held for investment increased 2.9% for the three months ended March 31, 2017. The increase of $45 thousand in provision for loan losses from March 31, 2016 to March 31, 2017 was due to the general provision required from the charge-off of loans in the period which was partially offset by a decrease in loan growth compared to the same period in 2016.

Other real estate owned totaled $998 thousand at March 31, 2017 compared to $662 thousand at December 31, 2016 and $493 thousand at March 31, 2016. Non-accrual loans were $1.7 million at March 31, 2017 compared to $941 thousand at December 31, 2016 and $525 thousand at March 31, 2016. At March 31, 2017 and December 31, 2016, non-accrual loans to our total loans held for investment was minimal at 0.17% and 0.09%, respectively.

Nonperforming assets totaled $2.9 million, or 0.19%, of total assets at March 31, 2017 compared to $2.4 million, or 0.17%, of total assets at December 31, 2016. Nonperforming assets were $1.2 million, or 0.11%, of total assets at March 31, 2016. The increase of $458 thousand in nonperforming assets compared to December 31, 2016 was primarily due to an increase in non-accrual loans of $745 thousand and an increase in other real estate owned of $336 thousand which was partially offset by a decrease in accruing loans past due over 90 days of $623 thousand.

___________________________

(1) Total loans does not include loans held for sale and deferred fees. Loans held for sale were $1.9 million at March 31, 2017, $5.2 million at December 31, 2016, $4.9 million at September 30, 2016, $4.8 million at December 31, 2016 and $3.6 million at March 31, 2016. Deferred fees were $48 thousand at March 31, 2017, $55 thousand at December 31, 2016, $51 thousand at September 30, 2016, $52 thousand at December 31, 2016, and $65 thousand at March 31, 2016.

(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. Our management believe that this measure is important to many investors in the market place who are interested in relative changes from period to period in common equity and total assets, each exclusive of changes in intangible assets. Goodwill and other intangible assets have the effect of increasing both total stockholders’ equity and assets while not increasing our tangible common equity or tangible 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).”

___________________________

(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. Our management believes that this measure is important to many investors in the market place who are interested in changes from period to period on book value per common share exclusive of changes in intangible assets. Goodwill and other intangible assets have the effect of increasing total book value while not increasing our tangible book value.

___________________________

(1) We calculate pre-tax, pre-provision income by adding the total provision for loan losses to net income from operations for the relevant period. Pre-tax pre-provision income is a non-GAAP financial measure and as we calculate pre-tax, pre-provision income, the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure is net income. Our management believe that this measure is important to many investors in the market place who are interested in understanding our operating performance before provision for loan losses, which can vary from quarter to quarter, and income taxes.
