BETHESDA, Md., April 22, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Eagle Bancorp, Inc. (the "Company") (Nasdaq:EGBN), the parent company of EagleBank, today announced record quarterly net income of $11.6 million for the quarter ended March 31, 2013, a 52% increase over the $7.6 million net income for the quarter ended March 31, 2012. Net income available to common shareholders for the quarter ended March 31, 2013 increased 53% to $11.4 million ($0.49 per basic common share and $0.48 per diluted common share), as compared to $7.5 million ($0.37 per basic common share and $0.36 per diluted common share) for the same period in 2012.

"We are very pleased to report a continuing trend of record quarterly earnings, consisting of balanced and focused financial performance, comprised of substantially higher total revenue from net interest income and noninterest income, continued favorable asset quality and disciplined operating expense management," noted Ronald D. Paul, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Eagle Bancorp, Inc.

Capital levels at March 31, 2013 versus December 31, 2012 have been enhanced by strong earnings during the quarter. The Company's earnings have now increased for seventeen consecutive quarters since the fourth quarter of 2008. Mr. Paul noted, "For the first quarter of 2013, the Company maintained its disciplined approach to loan pricing, and was able to record loan growth in excess of 2% for the first three months of 2013, which was net of substantial loan payoffs due to expected maturities during the period." For the quarter, the loan portfolio yielded 5.65%, as compared to 5.67% for the final quarter of 2012, while average loans for the first quarter were 19% above the same quarter in 2012. Mr. Paul added, "Considering the high level of average liquidity maintained during the first quarter, I am very pleased with the net interest margin of 4.20%, which was higher than the same quarter one year ago and remains very favorable to peer banking companies."

Higher average liquidity was maintained intentionally to address potential negative impacts of the TAG deposit insurance expiration. Aside from the loss of one $130 million trustee relationship, the Company has not experienced any measurable negative impacts from TAG expiration. Excluding this relationship, total deposits increased in the first quarter by $46 million. Average deposits for the first quarter were 20% above the same quarter in 2012.

The Company has been able to further enhance its favorable operating cost management as measured by both the Efficiency Ratio, which was 48.56% and the annualized level of Noninterest Expenses to Average Assets, which was 2.48%. Total revenue (net interest income plus noninterest income) was $42.6 million for the first quarter of 2013, 4% higher than the fourth quarter in 2012 and 24% higher than the same quarter one year ago.

At March 31, 2013, total assets were $3.32 billion, compared to $2.82 billion at March 31, 2012, an 18% increase. As compared to December 31, 2012, total assets at March 31, 2013 decreased by $85 million, a 3% decrease. Total loans (excluding loans held for sale) were $2.55 billion at March 31, 2013 compared to $2.19 billion at March 31, 2012, a 17% increase. As compared to December 31, 2012, total loans at March 31, 2013 increased by $55 million, a 2% increase. Total deposits were $2.81 billion at March 31, 2013, compared to deposits of $2.37 billion at March 31, 2012, a 19% increase. As compared to December 31, 2012, total deposits at March 31, 2013 decreased by $84 million, a 3% decrease, resulting from the loss of one large relationship. Loans held for sale amounted to $132.7 million at March 31, 2013 as compared to $87.5 million at March 31, 2012, a 52% increase. As compared to December 31, 2012 loans held for sale decreased by $94 million, a 42% decrease. The investment portfolio totaled $318.4 million at March 31, 2013, an 8% decrease from the $345.0 million balance at March 31, 2012. As compared to December 31, 2012, the investment portfolio at March 31, 2013 increased by $18.6 million, a 6% increase. Total borrowed funds (excluding customer repurchase agreements) were $39.3 million at March 31, 2013 compared to $49.3 million at March 31, 2012, a 20% decrease due to the early payoff of Federal Home Loan Bank advances. As compared to December 31, 2012, total borrowed funds at March 31, 2013 remained the same at $39.3 million. Total shareholders' equity increased to $361.9 million at March 31, 2013, compared to $276.0 million and $350.0 million at March 31, 2012 and December 31, 2012, respectively, reflecting capital raising activities during 2012 and retained earnings. The Company's capital position remains substantially in excess of regulatory requirements for well capitalized status, with a total risk based capital ratio of 12.50% at March 31, 2013, as compared to a total risk based capital ratio of 11.59% at March 31, 2012 and 12.20% at December 31, 2012. In addition, the tangible common equity ratio (tangible common equity to tangible assets) increased to 9.08% at March 31, 2013, from 7.66% at March 31, 2012 and 8.50% at December 31, 2012.

At March 31, 2013, the Company's nonperforming assets amounted to $37.4 million, representing 1.12% of total assets, compared to $39.7 million of nonperforming assets, or 1.41% of total assets at March 31, 2012 and $36.0 million of nonperforming assets, or 1.06% of total assets at December 31, 2012. Management continues to remain attentive to early signs of deterioration in borrowers' financial conditions and is proactive in taking the appropriate steps to mitigate risk. Furthermore, the Company is diligent in placing loans on nonaccrual status and believes, based on its loan portfolio risk analysis, that its allowance for loan losses, at 1.52% of total loans (excluding loans held for sale) at March 31, 2013, is adequate to absorb potential credit losses within the loan portfolio at that date. The allowance for credit losses represented 138% of nonperforming loans at March 31, 2013, as compared to 122% at December 31, 2012 and 87% at March 31, 2012, respectively. The increase in the allowance for credit losses is due to a higher environmental reserve based upon the potential impact of sequestration and federal budget matters, and changes in loan mix. Included in nonperforming assets at March 31, 2013 were $9.2 million of other real estate owned ("OREO") as compared to $3.0 million at March 31, 2012 and $5.3 million at December 31, 2012.

For the three months ended March 31, 2013, the Company reported an annualized return on average assets ("ROAA") of 1.39% as compared to 1.08% for the three months ended March 31, 2012. The annualized return on average common equity ("ROAE") for the quarter ended March 31, 2013 was 15.29%, as compared to 13.80% for the quarter ended March 31, 2012. The higher ROAA and ROAE ratios for the first quarter of 2013 as compared to 2012 are due substantially to an expanded net interest margin, higher noninterest income and improved cost management.

Net interest income increased 21% for the three months ended March 31, 2013 over the same period in 2012, resulting from a combination of strong average balance sheet growth and net interest margin expansion, as the decline in earning asset yield was more than offset by a decline in the cost of funds, as compared to the same quarter in 2012. For the three months ended March 31, 2013, the net interest margin was 4.20% as compared to 4.11% and 4.31% for the three months ended March 31, 2012 and December 31, 2012, respectively.

The provision for credit losses was $3.4 million for the three months ended March 31, 2013 as compared to $4.0 million for the three months ended March 31, 2012. At March 31, 2013 the allowance for credit losses represented 1.52% of loans outstanding, as compared to 1.46% and 1.50% at March 31, 2012 and December 31, 2012, respectively. The lower provisioning in the first quarter of 2013, as compared to the first quarter of 2012, is due to a combination of lower loan growth, and changes in loan mix, offset somewhat by higher net charge-offs. Net charge-offs of $2.0 million in the first quarter of 2013 represented 0.33% of average loans, excluding loans held for sale, as compared to $1.7 million or 0.34% of average loans, excluding loans held for sale, in the first quarter of 2012. Net charge-offs in the first quarter of 2013 were primarily attributable to commercial and industrial loans ($918 thousand), construction loans ($713 thousand), the unguaranteed portion of SBA loans ($240 thousand), commercial real estate loans ($109 thousand) and home equity and consumer loans ($66 thousand).

Noninterest income for the three months ended March 31, 2013 increased to $8.1 million from $6.0 million for the three months ended March 31, 2012, a 35% increase. This increase was due primarily to an increase of $1.5 million in gains on sales of residential mortgage loans in the first quarter of 2013 as compared to the first quarter of 2012, resulting primarily from higher volumes of residential mortgage refinancing activity. Other income increased $416 thousand in the first quarter of 2013 as compared to the first quarter of 2012, a 65% increase due substantially to higher loan fee income. Investment securities gains amounted to $23 thousand for the first quarter of 2013, as compared to investment gains of $153 thousand for the first quarter of 2012. Excluding investment securities gains, total noninterest income was $8.1 million for the first quarter of 2013, as compared to $5.9 million for the first quarter of 2012, an increase of 38%.

The efficiency ratio, which measures the ratio of noninterest expense to total revenue, was 48.56% for the first quarter of 2013, as compared to 53.83% for the first quarter of 2012. Noninterest expenses totaled $20.7 million for the three months ended March 31, 2013, as compared to $18.6 million for the three months ended March 31, 2012, a 12% increase. Cost increases for salaries and benefits were $776 thousand, due to staffing increases primarily as a result of growth since March 31, 2012 in residential lending, as well as additional commercial lending and bank administration personnel merit and benefit cost increases, and increases in incentive pay. Premises and equipment expenses were $290 thousand higher, due to the cost of two new branch offices, normal increases in leasing costs and the acceleration of amortization for leasehold improvements. Data processing expenses increased by $283 thousand due to system enhancements and expanded customer transaction costs. The increase in other expenses of $840 thousand was due primarily to establishing a contingency reserve.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

(1) The Company considers the following non-GAAP measurements useful for investors, regulators, management and others to evaluate capital adequacy and to compare against other financial institutions. The table below provides a reconciliation of these non-GAAP financial measures with financial measures defined by GAAP.

Tangible common equity to tangible assets (the "tangible common equity ratio") and tangible book value per common share are non-GAAP financial measures derived from GAAP-based amounts. The Company calculates the tangible common equity ratio by excluding the balance of intangible assets from common shareholders' equity and dividing by tangible assets. The Company calculates tangible book value per common share by dividing tangible common equity by common shares outstanding, as compared to book value per common share, which the Company calculates by dividing common shareholders' equity by common shares outstanding. The Company considers this information important to shareholders' as tangible equity is a measure that is consistent with the calculation of capital for bank regulatory purposes, which excludes intangible assets from the calculation of risk based ratios.
