  • Net income for 2012 totals $28.3 million, up 11% over 2011
  • 2012 earnings per diluted share of $1.37, compared to $1.34 in prior year
  • Fourth quarter net income totals $5.4 million, or $0.23 per diluted share

  • Company repurchases preferred stock and warrants from U.S. Treasury, exiting TARP

ST. LOUIS, Jan. 24, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Enterprise Financial Services Corp (Nasdaq:EFSC) (the "Company") reported net income of $28.3 million for the year ended December 31, 2012, compared to net income of $25.4 million for the prior year period. After deducting dividends and accretion on preferred stock, the Company reported net income of $1.37 per diluted share as compared to $1.34 in 2011. The accelerated accretion associated with the Company's repurchase of preferred stock reduced 2012 diluted earnings per share for the fourth quarter and full year of 2012 by approximately $0.03.

For the fourth quarter of 2012, the Company reported net income of $5.4 million, a 25% decrease compared to net income of $7.2 million for the prior year period. After deducting dividends and accretion on preferred stock, including the accelerated dividend accretion, the Company reported net income of $0.23 per diluted share for the fourth quarter of 2012, compared to net income of $0.36 per diluted share for the fourth quarter of 2011. Higher provision for loan losses and accelerated accretion of discount from the early redemptions of preferred stock held in the U.S. Treasury's Troubled Asset Relief Program ("TARP") accounted for the reduction in earnings from the prior year fourth quarter.

Peter Benoist, President and CEO, commented, "Enterprise's 11% increase in net income for 2012 reflected continued favorable results from our covered loan portfolio and sustained growth in our core banking business. We continue to gain share in our primary private business market, driving strong growth in loans and demand deposits. Over the course of the year we increased net C&I loans outstanding by $200 million, or 26%. These loans now represent 46% of our total organic loan portfolio. We also increased our noninterest bearing demand deposit balances by more than 17%, contributing to a significantly lower-cost mix of deposits compared to a year ago."

"Loan growth in the fourth quarter was particularly strong with a mix of new relationships to the Company and strong fundings in commercial finance, structured finance and life insurance premium finance specialties," added Benoist. "Net earnings were reduced by an increase in credit costs as nonperforming loans increased during the quarter. However, on a year over year basis, we reduced our nonperforming asset ratio from 1.74% to 1.44% and we expect that overall positive trend in asset quality to continue."

Banking Segment

Deposits

Total deposits at December 31, 2012 were $2.7 billion, an increase of $107.9 million, or 4%, from September 30, 2012 and a decrease of $132.5 million, or 5% from the prior year period. The increase in deposits from the linked quarter was largely comprised of noninterest-bearing demand deposits and money market and savings accounts with higher cost certificates of deposits continuing to decline. The year over year decrease in deposits was largely comprised of an intentional 29% reduction in higher cost certificates of deposit as the Company continues to manage down its cost of funds.

Noninterest-bearing demand deposits increased $65.7 million and $101.3 million, as compared to the linked quarter and prior year, respectively. Noninterest-bearing deposits represented 26% of total deposits at December 31, 2012, up from 21% at December 31, 2011.

Loans not covered under FDIC loss share agreements ("Non-covered loans")

Portfolio loans totaled $2.1 billion at December 31, 2012, increasing $118.9 million, or 6%, in the fourth quarter of 2012.

The Company, which historically has been a strong Commercial and Industrial ("C&I") lender posted an $82.5 million, or 9% increase in C&I loans during the fourth quarter, the tenth consecutive quarter of growth in that lending category. C&I loans represented 46% of the Company's loan portfolio at December 31, 2012.

On a year over year basis, portfolio loans increased $209.0 million, or 11%. C&I loans increased $199.7 million, or 26%, since December 31, 2011, while Construction and Residential Real Estate loans decreased $4.7 million, or 2%, over the same time frame as the Company continues to shift its loan mix toward C&I credits.

Asset quality for Non-covered loans and other real estate not covered by loss share agreements

Nonperforming loans, including troubled debt restructurings of $1.4 million, were $38.7 million at December 31, 2012, a 21% increase from $32.1 million at September 30, 2012 and a 7% decline from $41.6 million at December 31, 2011. During the quarter ended December 31, 2012, there were $27.8 million of additions to nonperforming loans, $6.6 million of charge-offs, $9.1 million of other principal reductions, $4.0 million of assets transferred to other real estate, and $1.5 million moved to performing loans. The additions to nonperforming loans were primarily within the Commercial Real Estate and C&I components of our loan portfolio and were from all three of our geographic markets. The largest addition to nonperforming loans was a $4.7 million Commercial Real Estate loan.

Steve Marsh, Chairman and CEO of Enterprise Bank & Trust, noted, "We've commented previously on the elevated credit risks that persist in our portfolio, given the slow pace of economic recovery and continuing softness in the real estate markets. As a business-focused bank, we expect our credit costs to fluctuate somewhat quarter to quarter. This was the case in the fourth quarter, with five watch list credits and one additional loan added to our non-performer totals. The loans are varied in type and location and their issues don't suggest a trend or pattern. In fact, the longer term trend in asset quality remains favorable with non-performing loan and foreclosed real estate balances and net charge-off percentage lower than a year ago."

Nonperforming loans represented 1.84% of portfolio loans at December 31, 2012, versus 1.61% of portfolio loans at September 30, 2012, and 2.19% at December 31, 2011.

Nonperforming loans, by portfolio class at December 31, 2012 were as follows:

(in millions) Total portfolio Nonperforming % NPL
Construction, Real Estate/Land Acquisition & Development $ 160.9 $ 4.7 2.92%
Commercial Real Estate - Investor Owned 486.4 16.8 3.45%
Commercial Real Estate - Owner Occupied 333.2 5.7 1.71%
Residential Real Estate 145.6 2.6 1.79%
Commercial & Industrial 962.9 8.9 0.92%
Consumer & Other 17.0
Total $ 2,106.0 $ 38.7 1.84%

Excluding non-accrual loans, portfolio loans that were 30-89 days delinquent at December 31, 2012, remained at low levels, representing 0.10% of the portfolio compared to 0.07% at September 30, 2012 and 0.36% of December 31, 2011.

Other real estate totaled $9.3 million at December 31, 2012, a decrease of $3.2 million from September 30, 2012. At December 31, 2011, other real estate totaled $17.2 million. During the fourth quarter of 2012, the Company sold $7.9 million of other real estate, resulting in a loss of $1.0 million, primarily on one commercial real estate property in Kansas City. For the year, the Company sold $20.9 million of other real estate, reducing its portfolio by 46%, and resulting in a gain of $144,000.

Nonperforming assets as a percentage of total assets represented 1.44% of total assets at December 31, 2012 compared to 1.40% at September 30, 2012 and 1.74% at December 31, 2011.

Net charge-offs in the fourth quarter of 2012 were $5.8 million representing an annualized rate of 1.15% of average loans, compared to net charge-offs of $3.1 million, an annualized rate of 0.64% of average loans, in the linked third quarter and $4.9 million, an annualized rate of 1.04% of average loans, in the fourth quarter of 2011. For the year ended December 31, 2012, net charge-offs were $12.4 million or 0.64% of average loans versus $18.1 million or 0.99% in 2011.

Provision for loan losses was $5.9 million in the fourth quarter of 2012 compared to $1.0 million in the third quarter of 2012 and $0.0 million in the fourth quarter of 2011. The higher loan loss provision in the fourth quarter of 2012 compared to the third quarter of 2012 and fourth quarter of 2011 was due to a higher number of loan risk rating downgrades and additions in to non-performing loans in the quarter.

The Company's allowance for loan losses was 1.63% of loans at December 31, 2012, representing 89% of nonperforming loans. While the Company provided for net charge-offs in the fourth quarter, the loan growth noted above reduced the coverage rate on loans.

Loans and other real estate covered under FDIC loss share agreements

Loans covered under FDIC loss share agreements ("Covered loans") totaled $201.1 million at December 31, 2012, a decrease of $20.3 million, or 9%, from the linked third quarter primarily as a result of principal paydowns.

Other real estate at December 31, 2012 was reduced to $17.2 million, a 9% decrease from $18.8 million at September 30, 2012. During the fourth quarter of 2012, the Company sold $2.5 million of other real estate, resulting in a gain of $105,000. For the year, the Company sold $28.0 million of other real estate, reducing its portfolio by 53%, and resulting in a gain of $2.1 million.

The Company remeasures contractual and expected cash flows on Covered loans on a quarterly basis. When the remeasurement process results in a decrease in expected cash flows due to an increase in expected credit losses, impairment is recorded. Concurrently, the FDIC loss share receivable is increased to reflect anticipated future cash to be received from the FDIC. The amount of the increase is determined based on the specific loss share agreement, but is generally 80% of the losses. In the fourth quarter of 2012, impairments totaling $0.7 million were recorded for certain loan pools covered under loss share compared to $(0.1) million in the fourth quarter of 2011. The charge was partially offset through noninterest income by an increase in the FDIC loss share receivable.

Actual cash collections in excess of expected cash flows that represent accelerated loan payoffs result in the recognition of income, but also generally result in a decrease in the FDIC loss share receivable. These cash flows are, by their nature, unpredictable and can vary significantly period to period. Actual cash collections in excess of expected cash flows from loan payoffs in the fourth quarter resulted in accelerated discount income of $9.8 million, which was partially offset by a decrease in the FDIC loss share receivable.

Due to continued favorable projections in the expected cash flows of its Covered loans, the Company now anticipates it will be required to pay the FDIC at the end of one of the loss share agreements. Accordingly, a liability of $575,000 has been recorded through Other Noninterest Expense and will be adjusted as part of the quarterly remeasurement process.

The following table illustrates the net revenue contribution of covered assets for the most recent five quarters.

Net Interest Income

Net interest income for the banking segment in the fourth quarter increased $2.5 million from the linked third quarter, primarily due to accelerated cash flows in Covered loans. On a year over year basis, net interest income increased $7.5 million, or 22%. Including the effect of parent company debt, the net interest rate margin was 5.39% for the fourth quarter of 2012, compared to 5.21% for the third quarter of 2012 and 4.35% in the fourth quarter of 2011. In the fourth quarter of 2012, Covered loans yielded 33.42%, including effects of accelerated discount accretion due to cash flows on paid off Covered loans. Excluding the accelerated cash flow impacts, the Covered loans yielded 14.9% in the fourth quarter.

Beginning this quarter, the Company is presenting its core net interest margin as the net interest margin, including the contractual interest on Covered loans, but excluding the incremental accretion income on these loans. The core net interest margin for the most recent five quarters is as follows:

Core net interest margin 3.50% 3.57% 3.62% 3.59% 3.43%

In recent quarters, improvements in earning asset and deposit mix are being offset by declines in earning asset yields, resulting in lower net interest rate margin. The 2012 full year core net interest margin was 3.57% as compared to 3.49% for 2011 as the improvement in our earning asset mix and lower funding costs have outweighed the decline in earning asset yields. The Company believes that core net interest margin is an important measure of our financial performance even though it is a non-GAAP measure. The attached tables contain a reconciliation of core net interest margin to net interest margin.

Wealth Management Segment

Fee income attributable to the Wealth Management segment includes Wealth Management revenue and income from state tax credit brokerage activities. Fourth quarter 2012 Wealth Management revenues of $1.8 million were $50,000, or 3%, lower than the linked quarter and $107,000, or 6%, higher than the prior year period. For the year ended December 31, 2012, Wealth Management revenues of $7.3 million, were $459,000, or 7% higher than 2011.

Trust assets under administration were $1.8 billion at December 31, 2012, compared to $1.6 billion at September 30, 2012 and $1.6 billion at December 31, 2011.

Gains from state tax credit brokerage activities, net of fair value marks on tax credit assets and related interest rate hedges, were $1.0 million for the fourth quarter of 2012, compared to $256,000 for the linked quarter and $1.1 million in the fourth quarter of 2011. Sales of state tax credits can vary by quarter depending on client demand.

Other Business Results

Total capital to risk-weighted assets was 12.30% at December 31, 2012 compared to 14.12% at September 30, 2012 and 13.78% at December 31, 2011. The tangible common equity ratio was 6.02% at December 31, 2012 versus 6.19% at September 30, 2012 and 4.99% at December 31, 2011. The Company's Tier 1 common equity ratio was 7.70% at December 31, 2012 compared to 7.91% at September 30, 2012 and 7.32% at December 31, 2011. The decline in the Total capital to risk-weighted assets was due to the repurchase of preferred stock. The decline for the quarter in the tangible common equity ratio and Tier 1 common equity ratio was primarily due to the increase in assets from our deposit growth in the quarter. The Company believes that the tangible common equity and the Tier 1 common equity ratios are important financial measures of capital strength even though they are considered to be non-GAAP measures and are not part of the regulatory capital requirements to which the Company is subject. The attached tables contain a reconciliation of these ratios to U.S. GAAP.

Noninterest expenses were $22.6 million for the quarter ended December 31, 2012 compared to $21.3 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2012 and $23.4 million for the quarter ended December 31, 2011. The Company exceeded its fourth quarter guidance on noninterest expenses primarily due to the aforementioned FDIC liability of $575,000. The decrease over the prior year period was primarily due to lower other real estate valuation write-downs in the fourth quarter of 2012.

The Company's efficiency ratio was 62.0% for the quarter ended December 31, 2012 compared to 47.0% for quarter ended September 30, 2012 and 71.4% for the prior year period. The changes in the efficiency ratio as compared to the linked quarter and the prior year quarter were primarily due to the revenue from assets under FDIC loss share agreements.

As previously announced, the Company exited the United States Department of Treasury Capital Purchase Program when it repurchased all 35,000 outstanding shares of its Fixed Rate Cumulative Perpetual Preferred Stock ("Preferred Stock") for approximately $35.4 million, including accrued dividends, on November 7, 2012, and ten-year warrants to purchase up to 324,074 shares of common stock for $1.0 million on January 9, 2013. In conjunction with the repurchase of the Preferred Stock, the Company recorded approximately $1.0 million of incremental accretion on preferred stock during the fourth quarter of 2012 to eliminate the remaining discount.

The Company will host a conference call at 2:30 p.m. CST on Thursday, January 24, 2013. During the call, management will address the fourth quarter of 2012 results.
