Veritex Holdings, Inc. Reports Record Third Quarter Financial Results; Strong Organic Loan Growth Continues Through 2017

DALLAS, Oct. 23, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Veritex Holdings, Inc. (“Veritex” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ:VBTX), the holding company for Veritex Community Bank, announced today the results for the quarter ended September 30, 2017. The Company reported net income available to common stockholders of $5.1 million, or $0.25 diluted earnings per share (“EPS”), compared to $3.6 million, or $0.23 diluted EPS, for the quarter ended June 30, 2017 and $3.4 million, or $0.31 diluted EPS, for the quarter ended September 30, 2016.

Core net income, calculated as net income adjusted for the impact of income recognized on acquired loans and merger and acquisition costs, totaled $5.7 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2017, an increase of $2.0 million and $2.2 million from the quarters ended June 30, 2017 and September 30, 2016, respectively. Core diluted EPS for the quarter ended September 30, 2017 was $0.28, compared to $0.23 and $0.31 for the quarters ended June 30, 2017 and September 30, 2016, respectively.(1)

C. Malcolm Holland, the Company’s Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, said, “I am thrilled with our third quarter accomplishments. We closed the acquisition of Sovereign Bancshares, Inc., announced the merger with Liberty Bancshares, Inc. and successfully completed a public offering of our common stock. Our organic growth continued to be strong. Loan balances, excluding acquired Sovereign loans, have grown $183.9 million over December 31, 2016 balances, or at a 24.8% annualized rate. As we finish out 2017, we are excited about all the opportunities in the thriving business communities we currently serve and the new partnerships we will create through our merger with Liberty.

Result of Operations for the Three Months Ended September 30, 2017
Net Interest Income

For the three months ended September 30, 2017, net interest income before provision for loan losses was $19.1 million and net interest margin was 3.78% compared to $12.4 million and 3.53%, respectively, for the three months ended June 30, 2017. The $6.7 million increase from the three months ended June 30, 2017 was primarily due to an increase in interest income on loans, which was driven by increased volume in all loan categories resulting from loans acquired from Sovereign on August 1, 2017 of $750.9 million, as well as organic loan growth during the third quarter of 2017 of $53.3 million. Net interest margin increased 25 basis points from the three months ended June 30, 2017 primarily due to a change in mix of earning assets resulting from increases in loans, which tend to yield greater interest rates than other interest earning assets such as investment securities and interest bearing deposits in other banks. Average loan balances represented 81.9% of average interest-earnings assets for the three months ended September 30, 2017 compared to 76.2% for the three months ended June 30, 2017. In addition, the average yield on loan balances increased to 5.00% from 4.88% for the three months ended September 30, 2017 compared to the three months ended June 30, 2017 which was primarily driven by $585 thousand in estimated accretion during the third quarter of 2017 on loans acquired from Sovereign. The estimated accretion on the estimated purchase discount for loans acquired from Sovereign increased the average yield on loans by approximately 14 basis points for the three months ended September 30, 2017.

(1) As used in this release, core net income and core diluted EPS are non-GAAP financial measures. For a reconciliation of these non-GAAP financial measures to their comparable GAAP measures, see pages 10 and 11 of this release.

Net interest income before provision for loan losses increased by $8.6 million from $10.5 million to $19.1 million for the three months ended September 30, 2017 as compared to the same period during 2016. The increase in net interest income before provision for loan losses was primarily driven by higher loan balances resulting from the merger with Sovereign and organic loan growth. For the quarter ended September 30, 2017, the average loan balance increased by $689.0 million compared to the quarter ended September 30, 2016, which resulted in a $9.1 million increase in interest income. The net interest margin increased to 3.78% during the three months ended September 30, 2017 from 3.70% for the same three-month period in 2016. The 8 basis point increase in net interest margin was primarily due to a change in mix of earning assets resulting from increases in loan balances. The average yield on loan balances increased to 5.00% from 4.83% for the three months ended September 30, 2017 compared to the same period during 2016. The increase in the average yield for loans is due to the aforementioned 14 basis points attributable to the estimated accretion on loans acquired from Sovereign as well as the associated increases in the targeted Fed Funds rate which resulted in increases in yields in prime-based loans since September 30, 2017.

Noninterest Income

Noninterest income for the three months ended September 30, 2017 was $2.0 million, an increase of $211 thousand or 11.9% compared to the three months ended June 30, 2017. The net increase was primarily due to a $205 thousand increase in the gain on sale of securities which resulted from the sale of Sovereign investment securities that did not fit our investment strategy. In addition, the increase was due to a $114 thousand increase in services charges and fees on deposit accounts resulting from the additional acquired Sovereign deposit accounts and the associated income from these accounts. This increase was partially offset by a $102 thousand decrease in gain on sale of mortgage loans as a result in the decline in mortgage originations for the three months ended September 30, 2017 compared to the three months ended June 30, 2017.

Compared to the three months ended September 30, 2016, noninterest income for the three months ended September 30, 2017 grew $84 thousand or 4.4%. The increase was primarily due to a $205 thousand increase in gain on sale of securities as referenced above and a $236 thousand increase in services charges and fees on deposit accounts as described above. This increase was partially offset by a $331 thousand decrease in gain on sale of mortgage loans for the three months ended September 30, 2017 compared to the three months ended September 30, 2017.

Noninterest Expense

Noninterest expense was $12.5 million for the three months ended September 30, 2017, compared to $7.8 million for the three months ended June 30, 2017, an increase of $4.7 million or 60.9%. The increase was primarily driven by a $2.3 million increase in salaries and employee benefits expense, primarily due to the addition of 100 full-time equivalent employees related to the Sovereign acquisition. Compared to the second quarter of 2017, professional fees increased $785 thousand which were primarily a result of the use of legal and other professional services associated with the Sovereign and Liberty acquisitions. Occupancy and equipment expense increased $581 thousand primarily due to the addition of six owned buildings and five property leases from the Sovereign acquisition. Data processing and software expense increased by $347 thousand as the Company converted Sovereign’s operating systems into the Veritex information technology infrastructure.

Compared to the three months ended September 30, 2016, noninterest expense for the three months ended September 30, 2017 increased $5.5 million, or 78.1%. The increase was primarily related to the Sovereign acquisition for the reasons described in the preceding paragraph.

Income Taxes

Income tax expense for the three months ended September 30, 2017 totaled $2.7 million, an increase of $848 thousand, or 47.1%, compared to the three months ended June 30, 2017. The Company’s effective tax rate, before reporting the net impact of discrete items, was approximately 34.2% and 34.5% for the three months ended September 30, 2017 and the three months ended June 30, 2017, respectively. The change in income tax expense from the three months ended June 30, 2017 was primarily due to the $2.4 million increase in net operating income and decrease in net discrete tax benefit from $83 thousand for the three months ended June 30, 2017 to $30 thousand for the three months ended September 30, 2017. The net discrete tax benefit for the three months ended September 30, 2017 was primarily 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 33.8% and 32.0%, respectively for the three months ended September 30, 2017 and June 30, 2017, respectively.

Compared to the three months ended September 30, 2016, income tax expense increased $882 thousand, or 49.9%, to $2.7 million for the three months ended September 30, 2017. The Company’s effective tax rate, before reporting the net impact of discrete items, was approximately 34.2% for the three months ended September 30, 2017 compared to 34.4% for the three months ended September 30, 2016. There were no discrete tax items during the three months ended September 30, 2016. The change in income tax expense from the three months ended September 30, 2016 was primarily due to the increase in net operating income of $2.7 million offset by the impact of the net discrete tax benefit of $30 thousand during the three months ended September 30, 2017. The Company’s effective tax rate, after including the net impact of discrete tax items, was approximately 33.8% and 34.4% for the three months ended September 30, 2017 and 2016, respectively.

Financial Condition

Loans (excluding loans held for sale and deferred loan fees) at September 30, 2017 were $1.9 billion, an increase of $785.0 million or 69.9% compared to $1.1 billion at June 30, 2017, with $731.6 million of growth resulting from loans acquired from Sovereign.

Asset Quality

The allowance for loan losses as a percentage of loans was 0.55%, 0.87%, and 0.87% of total loans at September 30, 2017, June 30, 2017, and September 30, 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 decrease in the allowance for loan loss as a percentage of loans was attributable to the Sovereign acquisition as acquired loans are recorded at fair value.

The provision for loan losses for the three months ended September 30, 2017 totaled $752 thousand compared to $943 thousand and $238 thousand for three months ended June 30, 2017 and September 30, 2016, respectively. The decrease in provision for loan losses for the three months ended September 30, 2017 compared to June 30, 2017 was due to the general provision required from a decrease in organic loan growth compared to the prior period. The increase of $514 thousand in provision for loan losses from September 30, 2016 to September 30, 2017 was due to the general provision required from an increase in organic loan growth compared to the same period in 2016.

Non-accrual loans were $1.9 million at September 30, 2017 compared to $1.5 million at June 30, 2017 and $1.1 million at September 30, 2016. At September 30, 2017 and June 30, 2017, non-accrual loans to our total loans held for investment was minimal at 0.10% and 0.13%, respectively.

Nonperforming assets totaled $2.6 million, or 0.11%, of total assets at September 30, 2017 compared to $2.0 million, or 0.13%, of total assets at June 30, 2017 and $2.1 million, or 0.17%, of total assets at September 30, 2016. The increase of $626 thousand in nonperforming assets compared to June 30, 2017 was primarily due to a net increase in other real estate owned of $245 thousand. The increase of $542 thousand in nonperforming assets compared to September 30, 2016 was primarily due to an increase of $466 thousand in nonperforming loans.

___________________________

  1. Total loans does not include loans held for sale and deferred fees. Loans held for sale were $2.2 million at September 30, 2017, $4.1 million at June 30, 2017, $1.9 million at March 31, 2017, $5.2 million at December 31, 2016 and $4.9 million at September 30, 2016. Deferred fees were $28 thousand at September 30, 2017, $40 thousand at June 30, 2017, $48 thousand at March 31, 2017, $55 thousand at December 31, 2016, and $51 thousand at September 30, 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. Accruing loans 90 or more days past due excludes $3.3 million of PCI loans acquired from Sovereign as of September 30, 2017. No PCI loans were considered non-performing loans as of September 30, 2017.
  6. 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 of Non-GAAP Financial Measures – (Unaudited).”

  1. Merger and acquisition costs for the quarters ended September 30, 2017, June 30, 2017 and March 31, 2017 include merger costs related to the Sovereign and Liberty acquisitions. Merger and acquisition costs for the quarters ended December 31, 2016 and September 30, 2016 only include merger costs related to the Sovereign acquisition.
  2. We calculate core efficiency ratio as core noninterest expense divided by the sum of net interest income after provision for loan losses (as reported) and noninterest income (as reported).
  3. Core net interest margin is equal to core net interest income divided by average interest-earning assets.

___________________________

  1. We calculate book value per common share as stockholders’ equity 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 tangible common equity, 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 book value 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.
