Live Oak Bancshares, Inc. Reports First Quarter 2017 Results

WILMINGTON, N.C., April 26, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Live Oak Bancshares, Inc. (Nasdaq:LOB) (“Live Oak” or “the Company”) today reported first quarter net earnings available to common shareholders of $6.1 million, or $0.17 per diluted share, compared to $4.7 million, or $0.13 per diluted share, for the first quarter of 2016. During the first quarter of 2017, the Company completed its acquisition of Reltco, Inc. and National Assurance Title, Inc. (collectively referred to as "Reltco"), two nationwide title agencies under common control based in Tampa, Florida, and incurred merger-related costs of $516 thousand, or $0.01 per diluted share. The acquisition continues the Company's growth strategy, including vertical integration. Also, the Company expanded its financing of the renewable energy sector with the launch of its new solar panel leasing business and recorded the effect of investment tax credits associated with this business in the first quarter of 2017.

“We are very pleased with the first quarter’s results. Loan and lease originations of $469 million have us well on our way to our 2017 target range of $1.8 to $1.9 billion. Our recent continued focus in the renewable energy space helped drive strong loan and lease origination performance as well as provide investment tax credits through our solar panel leasing program. We believe the renewable energy business will continue to be a performance driver for years to come. As reflected in the recent acquisition of Reltco, a national title agency, our platform continues to evolve and allows us to provide best-in-class service to small businesses across the U.S.,” said James S. Mahan, III, Chief Executive Officer of Live Oak.

Loans and Leases

Net loans and leases held for investment increased $91.7 million, or 10.3%, to $981.1 million at March 31, 2017, from $889.4 million at December 31, 2016. Loans held for sale increased $118.2 million, or 30.0%, to $512.5 million at March 31, 2017, from $394.3 million at December 31, 2016. The increase in both portfolios is the result of significant growth in loan and lease origination activities which rose by 64.7% above the prior year level to $468.7 million. Approximately $19.0 million of leases were originated in the first quarter of 2017. The combined total loan and lease portfolio at March 31, 2017 and December 31, 2016, of $1.51 billion and $1.30 billion, respectively, were comprised of approximately 63.4% and 66.8% of unguaranteed loans and leases, respectively. At March 31, 2017, the total loan and lease portfolio of $1.51 billion increased 77.7% above its level of a year ago.

Average loans and leases were $1.42 billion during the first quarter of 2017 compared to $1.21 billion during the fourth quarter of 2016.

Net Interest Income

Net interest income for the first quarter of 2017 increased to $15.6 million compared to $8.7 million for the first quarter of 2016. The increase was driven by the significant growth in the combined held for sale and held for investment loan and lease portfolios attributable to steadily rising loan and lease originations and the Company's efforts to grow recurring revenue sources by increasing the level of loans and leases on the balance sheet. Another positive factor was the increase in net interest margin which rose from 3.08% for the fourth quarter of 2016 to 3.76% for the first quarter of 2017. The net interest margin improved as a result of the increase in the yield on interest earning assets while the rates on interest bearing liabilities remained relatively stable.

Noninterest Income

Noninterest income for the first quarter of 2017 totaled $25.8 million, compared to $22.4 million for the first quarter of 2016. Net gains on sales of loans increased to $19.0 million in the first quarter of 2017 compared to $16.4 million in the first quarter of 2016 and decreased compared to $22.5 million in the fourth quarter of 2016. The increase from the prior year was due to a higher volume of loan sales partially offset by a reduction in the average net gain on sale of loans. The decline from the linked quarter was due to a lower volume of loans sold during the first quarter of 2017 partially offset by an improved average net gain on sale of loans. Loan servicing revenues rose by $1.1 million from the first quarter of 2016 to $5.9 million. The addition of Reltco to the Company contributed $1.4 million in noninterest income during the first quarter of 2017.

Noninterest Expense

Noninterest expense for the first quarter of 2017 was $33.0 million compared to $21.7 million for the first quarter of 2016 and $32.4 million for the fourth quarter of 2016. Salaries and employee benefits increased to $18.7 million from $13.0 million for the first quarter of 2016 as a result of increased staffing commensurate with the growth of the business platform. Total stock based compensation expense in the first quarter of 2017 was $1.8 million compared to $4.4 million for the fourth quarter of 2016 and $659 thousand for the first quarter of 2016.

Professional services expense totaled $1.7 million for the first quarter of 2017 compared to $1.1 million in the fourth quarter of 2016 and $528 thousand in the first quarter of 2016. The growth in professional services expense over the fourth quarter is primarily attributable to advisory, consulting, and due diligence expenses related to the acquisition of Reltco.

Equipment expense totaled $1.1 million in the first quarter of 2017 compared to $551 thousand for the first quarter of 2016 and $550 thousand in the fourth quarter of 2016 due to increased depreciation expenses related to the shortening of useful lives assigned to current and newly acquired aircraft.

The other expense component of noninterest expense was $3.8 million for the first quarter of 2017 as compared to $1.7 million for the first quarter of 2016. This increase in other expense was principally related to charitable initiatives of $704 thousand, costs associated with the newly acquired title services business of $700 thousand, and the trade-in of one existing aircraft which resulted in a loss of $206 thousand.

Asset Quality

The unguaranteed exposure of nonperforming loans amounted to $3.6 million at March 31, 2017, compared to $4.8 million at December 31, 2016. Total nonperforming loans decreased to $22.5 million in the first quarter of 2017 from $23.8 million at the end of the prior quarter. Total unguaranteed nonperforming loans as a percentage of total loans and leases held for investment declined to 0.36% at March 31, 2017 compared to 0.53% at December 31, 2016.

Foreclosed assets increased $58 thousand to $1.7 million at March 31, 2017, from December 31, 2016. The unguaranteed exposure of foreclosed assets increased to $304 thousand at March 31, 2017, from $246 thousand at December 31, 2016.

Net charge-offs were $1.5 million in the first quarter of 2017 compared to $813 thousand in the fourth quarter of 2016 and $232 thousand in the first quarter of 2016. Net charge-offs as a percentage of average held for investment loans and leases, annualized, for the quarters ended March 31, 2017 and 2016 were 0.63% and 0.30%, respectively.

Provision for Loan and Lease Losses

The provision for loan and lease losses for the first quarter of 2017 totaled $1.5 million compared to $3.8 million for the fourth quarter of 2016 and $1.4 million for the first quarter of 2016. The decline versus the linked quarter is attributable to improvements in industry-specific loss rates and lower levels of required specific reserves on impaired loans combined with the migration to Company-specific loss rates for maturing verticals which was partially offset by an increase in reserves due to loan volume and the effect of higher net charge-offs.

The allowance for loan and lease losses totaled $18.2 million at March 31, 2017, unchanged from December 31, 2016, due to the aforementioned improvements in loss rates. The allowance for loan and lease losses as a percentage of total loans and leases held for investment was 1.82% at March 31, 2017 compared to 2.01% at December 31, 2016.

Income Tax

Income tax expense in the first quarter of 2017 totaled $798 thousand compared to an income tax expense of $3.3 million in the first quarter of 2016 and an income tax benefit of $3.0 million in the fourth quarter of 2016. The effective rate of 11.5% in the first quarter of 2017 principally reflected the generation of investment tax credits by the solar panel leasing activity under the Company’s strategic initiatives in the renewable energy sector. The tax rate also benefited from the adoption of a new accounting pronouncement related to the treatment of share based compensation issued by the Financial Accounting Standards Board that was effective January 1, 2017; "Compensation-Stock Compensation (Topic 718): Improvements to Employee Share-Based Payment Accounting," also referred to as ASU 2016-09.

Deposits

Total deposits increased by $154.1 million, or 10.4%, to $1.64 billion at March 31, 2017, compared to $1.49 billion at December 31, 2016, following successful deposit gathering campaigns. Average total interest bearing deposits for the first quarter of 2017 increased $97.0 million, or 6.8%, to $1.53 billion, compared to $1.44 billion for the fourth quarter of 2016. The ratio of average total loans to average interest bearing deposits was 92.7% for the first quarter of 2017, compared to 84.3% for the fourth quarter of 2016.

This press release presents the non-GAAP financial measures previously shown. The adjustments to reconcile from the applicable GAAP financial measure to the non-GAAP financial measures are included where applicable in financial results presented in accordance with GAAP. The Company considers these adjustments to be relevant to ongoing operating results. The Company believes that excluding the amounts associated with these adjustments to present the non-GAAP financial measures provides a meaningful base for period-to-period comparisons, which will assist regulators, investors, and analysts in analyzing the operating results or financial position of the Company. The non-GAAP financial measures are used by management to assess the performance of the Company’s business for presentations of Company performance to investors, and for other reasons as may be requested by investors and analysts. The Company further believes that presenting the non-GAAP financial measures will permit investors and analysts to assess the performance of the Company on the same basis as that applied by management. Non-GAAP financial measures have inherent limitations, are not required to be uniformly applied, and are not audited. Although non-GAAP financial measures are frequently used by shareholders to evaluate a company, they have limitations as an analytical tool and should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for analysis of results reported under GAAP.
