Northrim BanCorp Reports Earnings of $3.6 Million, or $0.51 per Diluted Share in 2Q17

ANCHORAGE, Alaska, July 31, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Northrim BanCorp, Inc. (NASDAQ:NRIM) (“Northrim” or the "Company") today reported that net income attributable to the Company was $3.6 million, or $0.51 per diluted share, in the second quarter of 2017, compared to $4.4 million, or $0.63 per diluted share, in the second quarter of 2016, and $3.8 million, or $0.55 per diluted share, in the first quarter of 2017. The decline in profitability compared to the second quarter of 2016 was in large part due to lower mortgage banking income principally resulting from normal seasonality combined with a slowing Alaska economy this year as compared to 2016.

For the first six months of 2017, net income attributable to the Company was $7.4 million, or $1.06 per diluted share, compared to $7.7 million, or $1.11 per diluted share, in the first six months of 2016. The Company's conversion to a new core banking system was successfully completed in May of 2017 and added other operating expenses of $633,000, or $0.09 per diluted share in the second quarter of 2017 and $764,000, or $0.11 per diluted share for the first six months of 2017. These one-time costs reduced both return on average equity and return on average assets by 33 basis points and 4 basis points, respectively, and increased the efficiency ratio by 243 basis points in the second quarter of 2017. For the first six months of 2017, these costs reduced both return on average equity and return on average assets by 40 basis points and 5 basis points, respectively, and increased the efficiency ratio by 141 basis points.

“We are very pleased to have completed this conversion on schedule and under-budget,” said Joe Schierhorn, President and CEO. “This new core banking system allows us to offer our business customers more sophisticated treasury management tools, and we believe our mobile applications are now more dynamic, easier to read, and will operate on virtually any device or operating system on the market today. Additionally, we expect that this new system will be more scalable, allowing for future growth without a commensurate increase in operating costs to accommodate that growth."

  • Net income attributable to Northrim BanCorp declined 6% to $3.6 million in the second quarter of 2017 compared to $3.8 million in the preceding quarter and 17% from $4.4 million in the second quarter a year ago.
  • For the first half of 2017, net income attributable to the Company declined 4% to $7.4 million, or $1.06 per diluted share, from $7.7 million, or $1.11 per diluted share in the like period a year ago. Costs of $764,000 associated with the core processing system conversion and lower mortgage banking revenues contributed to the decline in profitability during the first half of 2017.
  • Total revenues, which include net interest income plus total other operating income, increased 5% to $24.0 million in the second quarter of 2017, compared to $22.7 million in the first quarter of 2017, and declined 8% compared to $25.9 million in the same period a year ago. The fluctuations in mortgage banking income were the primary driver for the changes in total revenues for both periods.
    - Community Banking contributed 72% to total revenues and 77% to earnings in the second quarter.
    - Home Mortgage Lending contributed 28% to total revenues and 23% of earnings in the second quarter.
  • Net interest income increased 3% to $14.2 million in the second quarter of 2017 compared to the previous quarter, and grew 1% from the second quarter a year ago, mainly as a result of improved yields on loans and portfolio investments in the current quarter compared to prior quarters.
  • Both net interest margin ("NIM") at 4.20% and net interest margin on a tax equivalent basis ("NIMTE")* at 4.26% increased in the second quarter of 2017 compared to the first quarter of 2017, primarily due to increased interest rates in the current quarter. The Company's NIMTE remains above peer averages1.
  • Northrim announced in July that the Company intends to redeem its $8 million in trust preferred securities held at Northrim Capital Trust 1 in August 2017. This liability bears interest at a floating rate of 90-day LIBOR plus 3.15%, became callable in 2008 and has a final maturity of May 15, 2033. In 2016, total interest expense on this debt was $310,000. For the first six months of 2017, interest expense on this debt was $169,000. This redemption is expected to decrease Tier 1 Capital to Risk Adjusted Assets and Total Capital to Risk Adjusted Assets by approximately 60 basis points each, to 14.38% and 15.63%, respectively.
  • Northrim paid a quarterly cash dividend of $0.21 per share in June 2017, up from the $0.19 per share dividend paid in June 2016. The dividend provides an annual yield of approximately 2.9% at current market share prices.
  • Book value per share increased 4% to $27.75 at the end of the second quarter of 2017 from $26.75 a year ago, while tangible book value per share increased 9% to $25.40 at the end of the second quarter of 2017 from $23.30 a year ago.
  • The allowance for loan losses to portfolio loans grew to 2.02% at quarter end, compared to 1.90% a year ago, primarily due to the increase in nonperforming loans and the Company's assessment of various economic indicators including increasing vacancy rates for commercial real estate in Anchorage.
  • Northrim remains well-capitalized with Tier 1 Capital to Risk Adjusted Assets of 14.98%, total shareholders' equity to total assets of 12.84%, and tangible common equity to tangible assets* of 11.88% at June 30, 2017.

1As of March 31, 2017, the SNL US Bank Index tracked 151 banks with assets between $1 billion and $5 billion with averages for the following ratios: NIM (tax equivalent) 3.57%, loan loss reserves to gross loans of 0.98%, return on average assets 0.93%, and return on average equity 8.84%

Alaska Economic Update

“The decline in commodity valuations, particularly in the energy sector, continues to impact the economy of Alaska,” said Schierhorn. According to the State of Alaska Department of Labor, June 2017 employment was down 1.6 percent, compared to June 2016. This compares to job losses of 2.5 percent in the fall of 2016.

“With lower revenues being generated from our state's natural resources, we are disappointed that the Alaska State Legislature continues to enact only short term solutions that we believe do not address the state's long-term fiscal problems. Although we believe Alaska has far more financial resources than most states, we believe that the state government cannot continue to fund deficit spending from either the state reserves or the approximate $60 billion Alaska Permanent Fund (see www.apfc.org)."

In June, Alaskans celebrated the official anniversary of the completion of the Trans-Alaska Pipeline System (TAPS). The first oil flowed to Valdez through TAPS 40 years ago, culminating a 3-year, $8 billion project that employed approximately 70,000 people during construction.

In the past 40 years, more than 17 billion barrels of oil have been produced on Alaska’s North Slope. Through 2016, the oil industry has invested more than $55 billion in Alaska. In many years, oil has funded 90% of the state’s unrestricted general fund and generated more than $180 billion in total state revenue. Today, oil revenues account for approximately 67% of the state's unrestricted general fund revenue.

We believe that despite relatively low oil prices, the oil and gas industry will continue to have a significant impact on the Alaskan economy mainly due to the large amount of proven oil resources in the state. For example, revised estimates of the oil reserves at the oil field at Prudhoe Bay have exceeded initial projections and that oil field is now the third-largest oil field in the U.S. by proved reserves. Additionally, 2016 was the first year in a decade that had increased oil production through TAPS. If as expected, oil production through TAPS again increases in 2017, it would be the first time since 1988 where oil production through TAPS increased two consecutive years.

Regarding the housing market in Anchorage, the Alaska Dispatch News recently reported that the average price of a single-family home in Anchorage has remained stable from last year despite a large drop in housing inventory. Consequently, it appears to the Company that despite limited housing inventory and relatively low interest rates, housing prices are not rising.

According to the most recent report from Alaska Multiple Listing Service (the "AMLS"), the average home price in Anchorage was $365,836 for the first six months of 2017 (essentially unchanged from the same period last year), while the number of homes for sale in June 2017 was 865, down 16% from June 2016. Further, the AMLS reported that the total number of homes listed this year through June was 2,708, a drop of 12% from the first six months of 2016. According to the AMLS, housing inventory was artificially inflated in 2016 mostly as a result of the number of additional homes that became available as a result of the economic effects of Royal Dutch Shell abandoning its offshore oil exploration program in Alaska in 2015.

Overall, the AMLS predicts that selling a home in Anchorage will likely take longer this year compared to last year as the homes sold through June in 2017 spent 53 days on the market, which is up from 48 days for the first half of 2016.

Review of Income Statement

Consolidated Income Statement

In the second quarter of 2017, Northrim generated a return on average assets of 0.96% and a return on average equity of 7.43%, in line with the 0.93% return on average assets and lower than the 8.84% return on average equity posted by the 151 banks that make up the SNL U.S. Bank Index with assets between $1 billion and $5 billion as of March 31, 2017. NIM and NIMTE* for the second quarter of 2017 were 4.20% and 4.26%, respectively, compared to 3.57% NIMTE* for the index peers1. For the first six months of 2017, return on average assets was 1.00% and return on average equity was 7.86%, compared to 1.04% and 8.53%, respectively, for the first half of 2016.

Net Interest Income/Net Interest Margin

Net interest income grew 3% to $14.2 million in the second quarter of 2017 compared to $13.8 million in the first quarter 2017 and grew 1% from $14.1 million in the second quarter a year ago. For the first six months of 2017, net interest income declined 1% to $28.1 million from $28.3 million in the first six months of 2016. Lower interest and fees on loans during the current quarter compared to the same quarter in 2016 were more than offset by higher interest on portfolio investments in the current quarter, while increased interest income on portfolio investments in the first half of 2017 only partially offset reduced interest and fees on loans during that period compared to the same period in 2016. Stable average portfolio loan balances and yields helped sustain net interest income during the current quarter, while lower average portfolio balances as a percentage of total earning assets contributed to a decline in both NIM and NIMTE for the first half of the year compared to the same period in 2016. In addition, in the first quarter of 2017, net interest income was reduced by the reversal of $187,000 in interest income on an $8.7 million commercial loan relationship that was moved to nonaccrual status.

NIM increased to 4.20% in the second quarter of 2017 compared to 4.15% in the preceding quarter and decreased 1 basis points from the same quarter a year ago. For the first six months of 2017 NIM was 4.17%, a decline of 5 basis points from 4.22% in the first six months of 2016.The following table summarizes the components of these changes:

2Q17 vs. 1Q17 2Q17 vs. 2Q16
Nonaccrual interest adjustments%%
Interest rates and loan fees0.06%0.04%
Volume and mix of interest-earning assets(0.01)%(0.05)%

YTD17 vs.YTD16
Nonaccrual interest adjustments%
Interest rates and loan fees(0.01)%
Volume and mix of interest-earning assets(0.04)%
Change in NIM(0.05)%

“We anticipate the planned repayment of one of our higher-cost floating rate liabilities will reduce interest expense going forward by at least $300,000 per year, and possibly more if interest rates continue to rise,” said Latosha Frye, Chief Financial Officer. “We believe the elimination of this interest expense will help to sustain NIM in the coming quarters.

“We expect NIM will range from 4.15% to 4.25% and NIMTE* will range from 4.20% and 4.30% in the second half of 2017 as we anticipate that our earning assets will continue to reprice higher and increases in deposit costs will lag these increases. We continue to believe that both our NIM and NIMTE* will benefit in the event interest rates rise or the yield curve steepens, and we would be adversely affected if interest rates fall and the yield curve continues to flatten,” Frye continued.

Provision for Loan Losses

The provision for loan losses was $300,000 in the second quarter of 2017 compared to $400,000 in the first quarter of 2017 and $200,000 in the second quarter of 2016. For the first six months of 2017, the provision for loan losses was $700,000 compared to $903,000 in the first half of 2016. While adversely classified loans and delinquencies improved slightly, nonperforming loan balances are elevated as compared to the prior quarter and June 30, 2016. The allowance for loan losses to portfolio loans at the end of the second quarter of 2017 was 2.02% compared to 2.07% at March 31, 2017, and 1.90% at June 30, 2016.

Other Operating Income

In addition to home mortgage lending, Northrim has interests in other businesses that complement its core community banking activities. It provides financial services to businesses and individuals through these interests, including purchased receivables financing, employee benefit plans, and wealth management. These complementary business activities, including home mortgage lending and other noninterest income, contributed $9.7 million, or 41% of total revenues in the second quarter of 2017, as compared to $8.9 million, or 39% of revenues in the first quarter of 2017 and $11.9 million, or 46% of revenues in the second quarter of 2016.

Other operating income decreased by 18% in the second quarter of 2017 from the same quarter a year ago and increased 9% from the first quarter of 2017. For the first six months of 2017, other operating income decreased 11% to $18.6 million from $21.0 million in the first six months of 2016. The decrease in other operating income for both the current quarter and the first six months of 2017 compared to the same periods a year ago, is primarily due to a decline in mortgage banking income in 2017. Since there is significant seasonality in mortgage banking in Alaska, and the first quarter is typically the lowest time of the year for mortgage activity(barring any significant increases in refinance activity or significant fluctuations in the value of mortgage servicing rights), mortgage banking income was higher in the current quarter compared to the previous quarter, which was the primary reason for the increase in total operating income in the current quarter compared to the previous quarter.

Other Operating Expenses

Operating expenses were $18.5 million in the second quarter 2017 compared to $16.6 million in the first quarter of 2017 and $19.4 million in the second quarter of 2016. The increase compared to the preceding quarter reflects an increase in variable costs commensurate with higher mortgage volume, the majority of the one-time costs related to the core conversion and the timing of payments for marketing expenses and charitable contributions. These increases were partially offset by the decrease in compensation expense related to the acquisition of Residential Mortgage, LLC ("RML") due to lower expected earnings from RML through the end of the current earn-out period, which ends on November 30, 2017. In addition, the Company accrued $170,000 in other operating expense for estimated loan collection costs in the fourth quarter of 2016, but reversed $100,000 of this estimate in the first quarter of 2017 when management determined that actual costs were $70,000. The Company also recorded a reduction in other operating expense in the first quarter of 2017 upon receipt of a $122,000 refund from the State of Washington for business and occupancy taxes related to 2012 - 2015 taxation years. The decrease in operating expenses in the second quarter of 2017 compared to the same quarter a year ago is primarily due to a decline in compensation payments related to the acquisition of RML mainly due to lower earnings from RML combined with a reduction in losses on the disposition of fixed assets.

Operating expenses for the first half of 2017 decreased 5% to $35.1 million from $36.7 million in the first half of 2016. The decrease from the year-ago period was primarily the result of the decrease in compensation payments related to the acquisition of RML mainly due to lower earnings from RML combined with lower salaries and other personnel expenses incurred in the first half of 2017.

Community Banking

“Our community banking business continues to generate the majority of our revenues and profits,” said Schierhorn. “While the slowdown in the economy has also slowed growth in both our loan and deposit portfolios, we believe the franchise remains positioned to capitalize on future market opportunities.” Net income in the community banking segment decreased 16% in the second quarter, compared to the preceding quarter and 3% year-over-year, primarily due to the increase in other operating expenses in the current quarter compared to the previous quarters, mostly as a result of the one-time costs related to the core conversion and the timing of payments for marketing expenses and charitable contributions.

Net income attributable to the Company in the community banking segment increased 8% to $6.0 million in the first six months of 2017 from $5.6 million in the first six months of 2016, primarily due to the lower compensation expense in 2017 related to lower earnings from RML.

Home Mortgage Lending

Home mortgage lending contributed $6.4 million to revenues and $0.12 to diluted net earnings per share in the second quarter 2017, compared to $5.5 million, or $0.08 per share, in the preceding quarter and $8.5 million, or $0.22 per share in the second quarter a year ago. For the first half of 2017, mortgage lending contributed $11.8 million, or $0.20 per share, compared to $14.2 million, or $0.30 per share, in the first six months a year ago. “Improvement from seasonal factors was partially offset by continuing softness in the Alaska economy this quarter,” said Frye. Despite the slowdown in the economy, the Company believes the housing markets in Alaska’s population centers remain stable. According to AMLS, average days on the market have lengthened slightly to 53 days in the first six months of 2017 compared to 48 days in the like period a year ago in the Anchorage market.

In the fourth quarter of 2015, Northrim began servicing the loans it originates for the Alaska Housing Finance Corporation, which accounted for approximately 20% of loans funded. Northrim now services 1,338 loans in its $332.5 million servicing portfolio, which continues to grow. Servicing income contributed $790,000 to second quarter mortgage banking income, compared to $1.4 million for the first quarter of 2017 and $510,000 in the second quarter a year ago. Servicing income declined in the second quarter compared to the first quarter primarily due to interest rate volatility and the impact on the change in the fair value for the mortgage servicing rights.

Balance Sheet Review

Northrim’s assets were $1.49 billion at June 30, 2017, down 2% from the second quarter a year ago and down 1% from March 31, 2017. The mix of average assets at each period end continued to shift from portfolio loans to portfolio investments.

Average investment securities increased 1% from the preceding quarter and 11% from a year ago. The investment portfolio generated an average net tax equivalent yield of 1.65% for the second quarter of 2017. The average estimated duration of the investment portfolio was 1.6 years, at June 30, 2017.

Average loans held for sale increased 19% to $40.9 million in the second quarter of 2017 compared to the preceding quarter, and decreased 16% from the same quarter a year ago, primarily reflecting the seasonality of the mortgage business and the reduced demand for home loans in the Alaska marketplace.

Portfolio loans increased 3% in the quarter and 2% year-over-year to $991.2 million at June 30, 2017. Average portfolio loans in the second quarter of 2017 were $969.0 million and relatively unchanged compared to the preceding and year-ago quarters. Construction and land development loans, which are by nature short-term, increased 5% in the second quarter of 2017 compared to the previous quarter and 3% year-over-year. Commercial loans grew 15% year-over-year. This growth includes the addition of one new large commercial relationship in the tourism industry. Additionally, non-owner occupied commercial real estate loans in the quarter were down 2% from the previous quarter but grew 5% year-over-year.

Alaskans account for substantially all of Northrim’s deposit base, which is primarily made up of low-cost transaction accounts. Balances in transaction accounts at June 30, 2017, represented 90% of total deposits. At June 30, 2017, total deposits were $1.23 billion, down slightly from $1.25 billion in the immediate prior quarter and $1.26 billion from a year ago. Year-over-year, second quarter average non-interest-bearing deposits declined 5% and average interest-bearing deposits increased 4%, leaving average total deposits up less than 1% at $1.24 billion in the second quarter of 2017.

Shareholders’ equity increased 4% to $191.8 million, or $27.75 per share, at June 30, 2017, compared to $184.0 million, or $26.75 per share, a year ago. Tangible book value per share* was $25.40 at June 30, 2017, compared to $23.30 per share a year ago. Northrim continues to maintain capital levels in excess of the requirements to be categorized as “well-capitalized” under the Basel III and Dodd Frank regulatory standards with Tier 1 Capital to Risk Adjusted Assets of 15.07% at June 30, 2017.

Asset Quality

Nonperforming assets, net of government guarantees increased to $25.8 million at June 30, 2017 compared to $12.2 million a year ago mainly as a result of the movement of one $10.2 million commercial relationship from adversely classified to nonperforming status in the second quarter of 2017 and the movement of one $8.3 million commercial relationship in the medical industry from adversely classified to nonperforming status in the fourth quarter of 2016. These two relationships represent 72% of total nonperforming assets, net of government guarantees, as of June 30, 2017. This increase in nonperforming assets was partially offset by pay downs on several loans, including a $2.1 million pay down on one land development loan that was moved to other real estate owned in the fourth quarter of 2016. The ratio of nonperforming assets to total assets, net of government guarantees was 1.73% for the second quarter of 2017, up from 1.22% in the first quarter of 2017 and 0.80% a year ago.

Adversely classified loans, net of government guarantees improved to $33.6 million at the end of the second quarter of 2017 as compared to $34.5 million at the end of the first quarter of 2017 and $41.1 million one year ago. Net charge-offs in the second quarter of 2017 were $132,000 compared to $204,000 in the previous quarter and a recovery of $2,000 in the second quarter of 2016. “None of these charge-offs were related directly to the oil sector,” said Frye.

Performing restructured loans that were not included in nonaccrual loans at the end of the second quarter 2017 were $5.7 million, down from $6.3 million at the end of the preceding quarter and $11.2 million a year ago. The decrease in the second quarter of 2017 compared to the first quarter of 2017 is primarily due to pay downs on several loans. The decrease in the second quarter of 2017 compared to a year ago is primarily due to the $8.3 million commercial relationship noted above that moved to nonaccrual status in the fourth quarter of 2016. Borrowers who are in financial difficulty and who have been granted concessions that may include interest rate reductions, term extensions, or payment alterations are categorized as restructured loans. The Company presents restructured loans that are performing separately from those that are classified as nonaccrual to provide more information on this category of loans and to differentiate between accruing performing and nonperforming restructured loans.

Adversely classified loans are loans that Northrim has classified as substandard, doubtful, and loss, net of government guarantees. As of June 30, 2017, $29.9 million, or 92% of adversely classified loans net of government guarantees are attributable to five relationships in the following sectors; two commercial businesses, one commercial real estate property, one medical business, and one oilfield services commercial business.

Northrim estimates that $60.1 million, or approximately 6% of portfolio loans as of June 30, 2017, had direct exposure to the oil and gas industry in Alaska, and $4.2 million of these loans are adversely classified. Northrim has an additional $61.2 million in unfunded commitments to companies with direct exposure to the oil and gas industry in Alaska, and none of these unfunded commitments are considered to be adversely classified loans. We continue to have no loans to oil producers or exploration companies. We define direct exposure to the oil and gas sector as loans to borrowers that provide oilfield services and other companies that we have identified as significantly reliant upon activity in Alaska related to the oil and gas industry, such as lodging, equipment rental, transportation and other logistics services specific to this industry.
