Loans and Leases

At September 30, 2017, the total loan and lease portfolio of $1.86 billion increased 67.5% above its level of a year ago. Net loans and leases held for investment increased $83.9 million, or 7.9%, to $1.15 billion at September 30, 2017, from $1.06 billion at June 30, 2017. Loans held for sale increased $83.4 million, or 13.7%, to $692.6 million at September 30, 2017, from $609.1 million at June 30, 2017. Loan and lease originations totaled $395.7 million during the third quarter, a decline from the prior quarter due to the seasonality of lending in the renewable energy sector. The total loan and lease portfolio at September 30, 2017, and June 30, 2017, of $1.86 billion and $1.69 billion, respectively, were comprised of approximately 60.6% and 61.7% of unguaranteed loans and leases, respectively.

Average loans and leases were $1.77 billion during the third quarter of 2017 compared to $1.61 billion during the second quarter of 2017.

Net Interest Income

Net interest income for the third quarter of 2017 increased to $21.0 million compared to $11.6 million for the third 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 and reflected the Company's initiative to grow recurring revenue sources by increasing the level of loans and leases retained on the balance sheet. The net interest margin of 3.91% for the for the third quarter of 2017 was consistent with 3.92% for the second quarter of 2017. The net interest margin has risen by 59 basis points from the third quarter of 2016 as the Company has benefited from the repricing characteristics of its loan portfolio in the rising rate environment.

Noninterest Income

Noninterest income for the third quarter of 2017 totaled $25.1 million, compared to $25.4 million for the third quarter of 2016. Net gains on sales of loans decreased to $18.1 million in the third quarter of 2017 compared to $21.8 million in the third quarter of 2016 and was in line with $18.2 million in the second quarter of 2017. The decrease in revenue from the prior year was due to a reduction in the volume of guaranteed loan sales partially offset by an increase in the average net gain on sale of guaranteed loans. The $39.9 million reduction in the volume of guaranteed loans sales from the prior sequential quarter resulted from a decrease in the percentage of new loans that were fully funded at closing, a product of the aforementioned seasonality of renewable energy lending. This was countered by the increase in the average net gain on guaranteed loan sales to $110.7 thousand per million sold versus $91.7 thousand in the prior quarter. Loan servicing revenues of $6.5 million in the third quarter of 2017 rose by $630 thousand from the third quarter of 2016. The inclusion of Reltco, Inc. and National Assurance Title, Inc. (collectively referred to as "Reltco"), which were acquired in February 2017, contributed $2.0 million in noninterest income to the Company in the third quarter of 2017.

Noninterest Expense

Noninterest expense for the third quarter of 2017 was $35.9 million compared to $27.2 million for the third quarter of 2016 and $33.3 million for the second quarter of 2017.

The $8.6 million, or 31.7%, increase in noninterest expense for the third quarter of 2017 compared to the third quarter of 2016 reflected the ongoing expansion of the Company’s workforce and related infrastructure in support of its growth strategy. There were increases in salaries and employee benefits of $1.6 million, equipment expense of $1.6 million and other expense of $1.5 million. Salaries and employee benefits were largely influenced by the addition of Reltco personnel during the first quarter of 2017 along with resources to support the ongoing growth of the business platform. Total stock based compensation expense in the third quarter of 2017 was $2.0 million compared to $4.1 million for the third quarter of 2016. The increase in equipment expense reflected the higher levels of depreciation related to aircraft acquired in the first quarter of 2017 and solar panels acquired for the Company’s renewable energy leasing business. Other expenses increased primarily due to the addition of Reltco in the first quarter of 2017 combined with support expenses driven by business growth.

Compared to the second quarter of 2017, noninterest expense increased $2.6 million, or 7.7%. This increase was driven by higher levels of salaries and benefits and higher costs related to equipment, delivery of loan and lease products, and other initiatives to support the growing business segments and diversification of the Company. Total stock based compensation expense in the third quarter of 2017 was $2.0 million compared to $1.9 million for the second quarter of 2017.

Asset Quality

The unguaranteed exposure of nonperforming loans declined slightly to $3.3 million at September 30, 2017, compared to $3.5 million at June 30, 2017. Total unguaranteed nonperforming loans as a percentage of total loans and leases held for investment declined to 0.28% at September 30, 2017, compared to 0.33% at June 30, 2017. Total nonperforming loans increased slightly to $22.4 million in the third quarter of 2017 from $21.9 million at the end of the prior quarter.

The unguaranteed exposure of foreclosed assets increased to $446 thousand at September 30, 2017, from $345 thousand at June 30, 2017. Foreclosed assets increased $91 thousand to $2.2 million at September 30, 2017, from June 30, 2017.

Net charge-offs totaled to $959 thousand in the third quarter of 2017 compared to $191 thousand in the second quarter of 2017 and $937 thousand in the third quarter of 2016. Net charge-offs as a percentage of average held for investment loans and leases, annualized, for the quarters ended September 30, 2017 and 2016 were 0.34% and 0.51%, respectively. Net charge-offs for the first nine months of 2017 totaled $2.7 million compared to $929 thousand for the first nine months of 2016.

Provision for Loan and Lease Losses

The provision for loan and lease losses for the third quarter of 2017 totaled $2.4 million compared to $1.6 million for the second quarter of 2017 and $3.8 million for the third quarter of 2016. The third quarter of 2017 provision exceeded net charge-offs, thus adding to loan loss reserves in consideration of the continued growth of the loan portfolio.

The allowance for loan and lease losses totaled $21.0 million at September 30, 2017, compared to $19.6 million at June 30, 2017. The allowance for loan and lease losses as a percentage of total loans and leases held for investment was 1.80% at September 30, 2017 and June 30, 2017, respectively.

Income Tax

There was a net income tax benefit in the third quarter of 2017 of $5.1 million compared to a tax expense of $2.6 million in the third quarter of 2016 and $408 thousand in the second quarter of 2017. The negative effective rate in the third quarter of 2017 principally reflected an increase in anticipated investment in renewable energy assets generating investment tax credits. As the lessor of these assets, the Company is accomplishing broader strategic initiatives in the renewable energy sector.

Deposits

Total deposits increased by $141.2 million, or 7.5%, to $2.01 billion at September 30, 2017, compared to $1.87 billion at June 30, 2017, following successful deposit gathering campaigns. Average total interest-bearing deposits for the third quarter of 2017 increased $203.2 million, or 11.7%, to $1.94 billion, compared to $1.74 billion for the second quarter of 2017. The ratio of average total loans to average interest-bearing deposits was 91.1% for the third quarter of 2017, compared to 92.7% for the second quarter of 2017.

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.
