Heritage Oaks Bancorp Logo

PASO ROBLES, Calif., Jan. 24, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Heritage Oaks Bancorp (the "Company") (Nasdaq:HEOP), a community bank holding company and parent of Heritage Oaks Bank (the "Bank"), reported net income of $3.1 million for the three months ended December 31, 2012, compared with $4.1 million for the same period a year earlier. The decline in net income is largely attributable to the reversal of a portion of our deferred tax asset valuation allowance in the fourth quarter of 2011, whereas, the fourth quarter 2012 reflected a fully normalized tax provision. Income before taxes was a record $4.8 million for the three months ended December 31, 2012, a $0.6 million or 15.0% increase, compared with $4.2 million for the same period a year ago. Net income for the twelve months ended December 31, 2012 increased $5.3 million or 68.8% to a record $13.0 million compared with $7.7 million for the year ended December 31, 2011.

Highlights

  • Improved earnings before taxes and provision for loan losses by $3.3 million, or 21.2%, to $18.9 million for the twelve months ended December 31, 2012 compared with $15.6 million for the same period a year ago;
  • Grew total deposits $84.7 million or 10.8% to $870.9 million at December 31, 2012 compared with $786.2 million at December 31, 2011. Non-interest bearing deposit accounts grew $56.0 million or 25.8% to $273.2 million at December 31, 2012 compared with $217.2 million at December 31, 2011;
  • Completed the acquisition of the Morro Bay branch of Coast National Bank, adding $27.2 million in deposits as of December 31, 2012, which expanded the Bank's presence in the markets we serve;
  • Increased total gross loans $43.3 million or 6.7% to $689.6 million at December 31, 2012 compared with $646.3 million at December 31, 2011. Total agriculture lending, inclusive of farmland, and residential mortgage loan portfolios each almost doubled in size from a year ago as the Company focused on expanding these product lines. Total new loan production was $196.1 million for the twelve months ended December 31, 2012 compared with $105.5 for the same period a year earlier;
  • Reduced classified assets as a percent of Tier I capital plus ALLL to 35.4% at December 31, 2012 compared with 44.3% at December 31, 2011; and
  • Increased regulatory capital ratios to 12.3% and 16.8% for Tier 1 Leverage and Total Risk-Based Capital, respectively at December 31, 2012, and maintained the allowance for loan losses as a percent of total loans at 2.6% at December 31, 2012.

"We are very pleased with our achievements in the fourth quarter and for all of 2012," said Simone Lagomarsino, President and Chief Executive Officer of Heritage Oaks Bancorp. "We achieved record earnings for 2012, even as we made significant investments in our operations including the hiring of commercial, agri-business, and mortgage loan officers; the opening of a new loan production office in Oxnard; and the completion of the acquisition of the Morro Bay branch in December. In addition, we have made strides in improving our overall credit exposure as reflected in the improvement in the ratio of classified assets to Tier I capital plus ALLL. Today, we are operating from a position of strength and stability, which allows us to focus on our customers and to build new relationships throughout our markets."

Net Income Available to Common Shareholders

Net income available to common shareholders was $2.8 million, or $0.10 per diluted common share, for the three months ended December 31, 2012, compared with $3.9 million, or $0.15 per diluted common share, for the same three months ended a year earlier. Net income available to common shareholders for the year ended December 31, 2012 was $11.6 million, or $0.44 per diluted common share, compared with $6.4 million, or $0.24 per diluted common share for the year ended December 31, 2011. The key components of the change in net income available to common shareholders for the three and twelve month periods are discussed below.

Net Interest Income

Net interest income was $10.8 million, or 4.35% of average interest earning assets, for the three months ended December 31, 2012 compared with $10.9 million, or 4.67% of average earning assets, for the same comparable period a year earlier. For the twelve months ended December 31, 2012, net interest income was $42.5 million, or 4.46% of average interest earning assets, compared with $43.2 million, or 4.71% of average interest earning assets, for the same period a year ago. The decline in net interest margin reflects the continuing trend of margin compression that has taken place throughout 2012, as a result of the historically low interest rate environment.

We continue to anticipate net interest margin pressure due to the very low interest rate environment, a competitive environment for quality loan relationships, increased refinancing activity of existing loans at lower rates, and a change in the mix of our loan portfolio. We are working to mitigate the impact of the pressure on our net interest margin over the short term through efforts to grow the loan portfolio rather than investing in lower yielding investment securities, through reductions in non-accrual loan balances, and through modest reductions in the cost of deposits and borrowings.

Provision for Loan Losses

We recorded no provision for loan losses for the three months ended December 31, 2012 compared with $0.7 million for the same period a year earlier. The lack of a provision in the fourth quarter of 2012 was largely driven by recoveries in the fourth quarter exceeding charge-offs along with continued improvements in the credit quality of the loan portfolio. For the twelve months ended December 31, 2012, we recorded $7.7 million of provision for loan losses compared with $6.1 million for the same period a year ago. The increase in provision for loan losses in 2012 was largely driven by increased specific reserve requirements for a few large loans placed on non-accrual status in the first half of 2012 and to a lesser degree an increase in the overall loan portfolio, offset by improved historical net charge-offs. Net charge-offs declined $2.8 million, or 24% to $8.9 million for the twelve months ended December 31, 2012 compared with $11.7 million for the same period a year earlier. Net charge-offs as a percent of average loans declined to 1.32% for the twelve months ended December 31, 2012, compared with 1.75% for the same period a year earlier. The 2012 ratio of net charge-offs to average loans is the lowest annual level the Company has reported since 2008.

Non-Interest Income

Non-interest income was $3.5 million for the three months ended December 31, 2012, a $0.3 million or 10% increase, compared with $3.2 million for the same period a year earlier. For the twelve months ended December 31, 2012, non-interest income was $12.5 million, a $2.8 million or 29% increase, compared with $9.7 million for the same period a year ago. The increase in non-interest income was primarily the result of higher gain on sale of mortgage loans, investment securities, and Other Real Estate Owned ("OREO").

Non-Interest Expense

Non-interest expense was $9.5 million for the three months ended December 31, 2012 compared with $9.2 million for the same period a year earlier. For the twelve months ended December 31, 2012, non-interest expense was $36.1 million compared with $37.3 million for the same period a year earlier. Non-interest expense has been impacted by an increase in loss provisions for mortgage repurchases for mortgages sold in 2007; an increase in salaries and employee benefits due to higher commissions resulting from higher mortgage loan originations; and the re-establishment of a management incentive compensation plan in 2012. The Company's operating efficiency ratio slightly improved to 67.9% for the twelve months ended December 31, 2012 compared with 68.0% for the same period a year ago. The Company's operating efficiency ratio for 2012 was negatively impacted by one-time expense items, as well as net interest margin compression.

Income Taxes

The provision for income taxes was $1.7 million for the three months ended December 31, 2012 compared with $0.1 million for the same period a year earlier, which prior period included a $1.5 million partial reversal of our deferred tax valuation allowance. For the twelve months ended December 31, 2012, the Company recorded a benefit from income taxes of $1.8 million, which included a reversal of the remaining $5.6 million of deferred tax asset valuation allowance. The tax benefit in 2012 compared with a provision for income taxes of $1.8 million for the same period a year ago, which included the previously mentioned $1.5 million partial valuation allowance reversal. As the earnings outlook improved in late 2011 and into 2012, the Company reversed the valuation allowance based upon our change in expectation of future profitability and therefore our assessment of our ability to fully realize the deferred tax asset. Excluding the impact of the valuation allowance reversals in 2012, the Company's effective tax rate for all of 2012 was 33.9% compared with 34.8% for the same period a year ago.

Balance Sheet

Total assets increased $110.4 million, or 11.2%, to $1.1 billion at December 31, 2012 compared with $987.1 million at December 31, 2011. The increase in total assets was primarily the result of growth in total loans and investment securities. This asset growth was primarily funded by an $84.7 million, or 11%, increase in total deposits; with 66% of the deposit growth coming from non-interest bearing demand deposit accounts. Total stockholders' equity was $145.5 million at December 31, 2012, an increase of $15.9 million or 12.3%, compared with $129.6 million at December 31, 2011. The increase in stockholders' equity was primarily driven by earnings for the year.

The Company's liquidity ratio (total cash and cash equivalents plus unpledged marketable securities divided by the sum of total deposits and short-term liabilities less pledged securities) was 36.4% at December 31, 2012 compared with 35.1% at December 31, 2011.

The Company and the Bank exceeded the ratios generally required to be considered a "well capitalized" financial institution for regulatory purposes. The tier I leverage ratio for the Company and the Bank were 12.3% and 11.9%, respectively at December 31, 2012. The total risk-based Capital ratio for the Company and the Bank were 16.8% and 16.3%, respectively at December 31, 2012. The Company remains current on all obligations, including its junior subordinated debentures, and preferred stock issued under the U.S. Treasury's Capital Purchase Program and privately placed preferred stock.

Asset Quality

Classified loans decreased $2.8 million or 5.2% to $51.1 million at December 31, 2012 compared with $53.9 million at December 31, 2011. Classified assets as a percent of Tier I Capital plus the allowance for loan losses improved to 35.4% at December 31, 2012 compared with 44.3% at December 31, 2011.

Non-accrual loans increased $4.9 million to $17.3 million at December 31, 2012 compared with $12.4 million at December 31, 2011, of which $12.6 million were still paying per their contractual terms. Non-performing loans to gross loans increased to 2.5% at December 31, 2012 from 1.9% at December 31, 2011. The Company held no OREO at December 31, 2012, a decrease of $0.9 million from December 31, 2011. Total non-performing assets, inclusive of non-accrual loans, increased $4.0 million to $17.3 million at December 31, 2012 compared with $13.3 million at December 31, 2011. The percentage of non-performing assets to total assets was 1.6% at December 31, 2012 compared with 1.4% at December 31, 2011.

Total troubled debt restructurings ("TDRs") outstanding were $11.6 million at December 31, 2012 compared with $3.7 million at December 31, 2011. The increase in the level of reported TDRs in 2012 was largely the result of a single large loan relationship that was modified in the first quarter of 2012. The ALLL was $18.1 million, or 2.6% of total loans, compared with $19.3 million, or 3.0% of total loans at December 31, 2011. The decrease in the ALLL to total loans ratio is due to continued decreases in the historical loss experience of the loan portfolio.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Information

Heritage Oaks Bancorp provides all information required in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP), but it believes that evaluating its ongoing operating results and in particular, making comparisons to similar companies, may be enhanced by providing additional measures used by management to assess operating results. Earnings before income taxes and provision for loan losses, a non-GAAP financial measure, is presented because the Company believes adjusting its results to exclude tax and loan loss provisions provides stockholders with a useful metric for evaluating the core profitability of the Company. A schedule reconciling our GAAP net income to earnings before income taxes and provision for loan losses is provided at the end of the tables below.
