Highlights

  • Earnings before taxes and provision for loan losses improved $1.6 million, or 35.6%, to $6.1 million for the three months ended March 31, 2013, compared to $4.5 million for the three months ended March 31, 2012;
  • The Company recorded a $3.6 million gain on the sale of $84.6 million of securities as it repositioned its investment securities portfolio to reduce the effective duration of its investment securities portfolio to offset an expected increase in the duration of its loan portfolio;
  • Total gross loans increased $59.4 million, or 9.2%, to $704.9 million at March 31, 2013 from $645.5 million at March 31, 2012, resulting from strong growth in commercial, residential, and agriculture lending relationships. Total new loan production, including mortgage loans originated for sale, increased $18.1 million, or 28.9%, to $80.8 million during the three months ended March 31, 2013 compared to $62.7 million a year earlier;
  • Total deposits grew $56.4 million, or 7.0%, to $862.8 million at March 31, 2013 from $806.4 million a year earlier with the majority of the growth coming from non-interest bearing deposits;
  • Credit quality continued to improve in the first quarter of 2013, with non-performing assets to total assets declining 33.3% to 1.2% compared to the first quarter of 2012. Classified assets as a percent of Tier 1 capital plus ALLL improved to 32.2% compared to 45.8% a year earlier, and annualized net loan charge-offs declined to 0.22% of average loans outstanding, representing a significant reduction compared from 1.75% a year earlier. The Company had no real estate owned at March 31, 2013; and
  • Regulatory capital ratios improved from 12.2% and 15.9% at March 31, 2012 to 12.7% and 17.8% for Tier 1 Leverage and Total Risk-Based Capital, respectively at March 31, 2013, and the allowance for loan losses as a percent of total loans was 2.52% at March 31, 2013.

"We are pleased with our strong financial performance for the first quarter of 2013," said Simone Lagomarsino, President and Chief Executive Officer of Heritage Oaks Bancorp. "During 2012 we restructured the organization, which reduced some of our back office and administrative expenses. We redeployed a portion of these savings to hire additional relationship lenders. These new team members are supporting our expansion into new geographic markets such as Ventura County, in addition to deepening our penetration in existing business lines, including agriculture, commercial, small business and mortgage lending. As a result, we have been able to generate strong quarter-over-quarter net loan growth in each of the last four quarters".

"We are also pleased to announce the termination of the Bank's MOU with the FDIC and DFI. We believe the termination of the MOU reflects the progress that we've made in improving our overall credit quality, operations, and financial profitability," said Ms. Lagomarsino. "We still have the MOU outstanding with the Federal Reserve Board ("FRB") and look forward to our onsite inspection by the FRB later this year. Following the termination of the MOU with the FDIC and DFI, we have submitted a request to the DFI to approve a $25.0 million dividend from the Bank to the Company. At the same time, we have submitted a request to the FRB to approve the repurchase of the 21,000 shares of Series A Preferred Stock that have an original issue price of $1,000 per share, and the repurchase of warrants to purchase 611,650 shares of the Company's Common Stock that have a strike price of $5.15 per share from the U.S. Department of Treasury."

Net Income Available to Common Shareholders

Net income available to common shareholders was $3.4 million, or $0.13 per diluted common share, for the three months ended March 31, 2013, compared with $1.2 million, or $0.05 per diluted common share, for the same three months ended a year earlier. The key components of the change in net income available to common shareholders for the three month period are discussed below.

Net Interest Income

Net interest income was $10.2 million, or 4.14% of average interest earning assets (net interest margin), for the three months ended March 31, 2013 compared with $10.7 million, or 4.72% of average earning assets, for the same period a year earlier. The decline in net interest margin reflects the continuing trend of margin compression, 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 net interest margin compression through our efforts to grow the loan portfolio, through reductions in non-performing loans, and through modest reductions in the cost of deposits and borrowings.

Provision for Loan Losses

No provision for loan losses was recorded for the three months ended March 31, 2013 compared with a $3.3 million provision for the same period a year earlier. The lack of a provision in the first quarter of 2013 was largely driven by continued improvements in the overall credit quality of the loan portfolio, as well as continued improvement in our loan credit loss experience. Net charge-offs declined $2.4 million, or 86.8%, to $0.4 million for the three months ended March 31, 2013 compared with net charge-offs of $2.8 million for the same period a year earlier. Net charge-offs as a percent of average loans declined to 0.22% for the three months ended March 31, 2013, compared with 1.75% for the same period a year earlier.

Non-Interest Income

Non-interest income was $5.7 million for the three months ended March 31, 2013, a $3.2 million or 124.5% increase, compared with $2.5 million for the same period a year earlier. The increase in non-interest income was primarily the result of higher gain on sale of investment securities as the Company reduced the effective duration of its investment securities portfolio to offset an expected increase in the duration of the loan portfolio.

Non-Interest Expense

Non-interest expense was $9.7 million for the three months ended March 31, 2013 compared with $8.7 million for the same period a year earlier. Non-interest expense for the first quarter of 2013 included $0.6 million in loss provisions for mortgage repurchases for mortgages sold in 2007; a $0.7 million increase in salaries and employee benefits due to the reintroduction of an annual management incentive plan for 2013 compared with no such plan in the first quarter of 2012 and increases in base salaries due to annual merit increases.

The Company's operating efficiency ratio increased to 78.1% for the three months ended March 31, 2013 compared with 65.7% for the same period a year ago. The Company's operating efficiency ratio for 2013 was negatively impacted by one-time expense items such as the loss provisions for potential mortgage repurchases and higher employee incentive costs, as well as net interest margin compression. Excluding the impacts of the provisions for mortgage repurchases and net interest margin compression as compared to the same quarter last year, operating efficiency would have been 65.8% for the quarter ended March 31, 2013, as compared to 64.8% for the comparable period in 2012. The ratio of operating expenses to average assets, which excludes the impacts of margin compression, was 3.66% for the quarter ended March 31, 2013, as compared to 3.58% for the comparable period last year.

Income Taxes

Income tax expense was $2.4 million for the three months ended March 31, 2013 compared with a $0.4 million tax benefit for the same period a year earlier, which prior period included a $0.8 million partial reversal of deferred tax valuation allowance. Excluding the impact of the valuation allowance reversal in 2012, the Company's effective tax rate for the first quarter of 2013 was 39.1% compared with 35.2% for the same period a year ago.

Balance Sheet

Total assets increased $55.9 million, or 5.5%, to $1.1 billion at March 31, 2013 compared with a year earlier. The increase in total assets was primarily the result of growth in the loan portfolio. Total stockholders' equity was $146.7 million at March 31, 2013, an increase of $14.1 million or 10.6%, compared with a year earlier.

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 32.5% at March 31, 2013 compared with 35.9% at March 31, 2012, which reflects the reduction in the level of securities during the quarter used to fund loan growth and to repay short-term FHLB borrowings.

The Company's and the Bank's regulatory capital ratios exceeded the ratios generally required to be considered a "well capitalized" financial institution for regulatory purposes. Tier I Leverage Ratio for the Company and the Bank were 12.7% and 12.4%, respectively at March 31, 2013 compared to the requirement of 5.0% to generally be considered a "well capitalized" financial institution for regulatory purposes. Total Risk-Based Capital Ratio for the Company and the Bank were 17.8% and 17.3%, respectively, at March 31, 2013 compared to the requirement of 10.0% to generally be considered a "well capitalized" financial institution for regulatory purposes. The Company remains current on all of its obligations, including its junior subordinated debentures, preferred stock issued under the U.S. Treasury's TARP CPP, and privately placed preferred stock.

After considering the effects of a $25.0 million dividend at the Bank and the subsequent repurchase of Series A Preferred Shares and related warrants at the holding company, the Company's proforma Tier 1 Leverage Ratios would be in excess of 10.0% at both the Bank and Company at March 31, 2013. However, no assurances can be given that we will receive regulatory approval or that the Bank's or Company's Tier 1 Leverage ratios regulatory capital ratios will be in excess of 10.0% at the time of repurchase.

Asset Quality

Classified loans decreased $12.4 million or 20.3% to $48.7 million at March 31, 2013 compared with $61.1 million at March 31, 2012. Non-accrual loans decreased $4.5 million to $12.2 million at March 31, 2013, of which $10.9 million were still paying per their contractual terms, compared with $16.7 million of non-accrual loans at March 31, 2012. Non-performing loans to gross loans decreased to 1.7% at March 31, 2013 from 2.6% at March 31, 2012. The Company held no Other Real Estate Owned at March 31, 2013, a decrease of $0.9 million from March 31, 2012. Total non-performing assets, inclusive of non-accrual loans, decreased $5.3 million to $12.3 million at March 31, 2013 compared with $17.6 million at March 31, 2012. The percentage of non-performing assets to total assets was 1.2% at March 31, 2013 compared with 1.7% at March 31, 2012.

Total troubled debt restructurings ("TDRs") outstanding were $10.0 million at March 31, 2013 compared with $3.0 million at March 31, 2012. The increase in the level of reported TDRs in the first quarter of 2013 was largely the result of a single large loan relationship that was modified in the second quarter of 2012. The allowance for loan losses was $17.7 million, or 2.5% of total loans at March 31, 2013, compared with $19.8 million, or 3.1% of total loans at March 31, 2012. The decrease in the ALLL to total loans ratio is due to continued improvement in the credit quality of the loan portfolio, the mix of loans in the portfolio, and declines 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.
