Result of Operations for the Three Months Ended June 30, 2018

Net Interest Income

For the three months ended June 30, 2018, net interest income before provision for loan losses was $27.6 million and net interest margin was 4.07% compared to $29.1 million and 4.46%, respectively, for the three months ended March 31, 2018. The $1.5 million decrease in net interest income and 39 basis point decrease in net interest margin was primarily due to an increase in the average rate paid on interest-bearing liabilities and a $1.4 million decrease in accretion during the three months ended June 30, 2018 compared to the three months ended March 31, 2018. Average interest-bearing deposits grew to $1.9 billion for the three months ended June 30, 2018 from $1.7 billion for the three months ended March 31, 2018 which was primarily due to increases in average outstanding correspondent money market and brokered deposits account balances which have corresponding rates above the average rate paid on our remaining interest-bearing deposits. As a result, interest-bearing deposit rates increased to 1.39% for the three months ended June 30, 2018 from 1.00% for the three months ended March 31, 2018.

Net interest income before provision for loan losses increased by $15.2 million from $12.4 million to $27.6 million and net interest margin increased 54 basis points from 3.53% to 4.07% for the three months ended June 30, 2018 as compared to the same period in 2017. The increase in net interest income before provision for loan losses was primarily driven by higher loan balances resulting from loans acquired from the acquisitions of Sovereign Bancshares, Inc. (“Sovereign”) and Liberty, continued loan growth of $102.8 million and a $1.9 million increase in accretion during the three months ended June 30, 2018 compared to the three months ended June 30, 2017. For the three months ended June 30, 2018, average loan balance increased by $1.3 billion compared to the three months ended June 30, 2017, which resulted in a $19.3 million increase in interest income. This was partially offset by an increase in the average rate paid on interest-bearing liabilities discussed above which resulted in a $4.7 million increase in interest on deposit accounts. Net interest margin increased 54 basis points from the three months ended June 30, 2017 primarily due to a change in mix of earning assets resulting from increased loan balances as well as due to increases in the prime rates in new and renewed loans. Average loan balances represented 85.8% of average interest-earnings assets for the three months ended June 30, 2018 compared to 76.2% for the three months ended June 30, 2017.

Noninterest Income

Noninterest income for the three months ended June 30, 2018 was $2.6 million, a decrease of $189 thousand or 6.8% compared to the three months ended March 31, 2018. The decrease was primarily due to a $355 thousand gain on sale of assets recorded in the first quarter of 2018 resulting from the completion of the sale of certain assets and liabilities associated with two branches in the Austin market with no corresponding sale in the second quarter of 2018. This decrease was partially offset by an increase in dividend income of $294 thousand as a result of a bi-annual Federal Reserve Bank stock dividend attributable to additional purchases of Federal Reserve Bank stock received during the three months ended June 30, 2018.

Compared to the three months ended June 30, 2017, noninterest income for the three months ended June 30, 2018 grew $826 thousand or 46.8%. The increase was primarily due to $452 thousand of rental income resulting from the purchase of our headquarter building on December 6, 2017, a $291 thousand increase in service charges and fees on deposit accounts resulting from the additional income on acquired Sovereign and Liberty deposit accounts and a $190 thousand increase in dividend income from the Federal Reserve Bank stock dividend attributable to additional purchases of Federal Reserve Bank stock during the three months ended June 30, 2018. This increase was partially offset by a $291 thousand decrease in the gain on sale of Small Business Administration loans.

Noninterest Expense

Noninterest expense was $16.2 million for the three months ended June 30, 2018, compared to $17.3 million for the three months ended March 31, 2018, a decrease of $1.1 million or 6.6%. The decrease was primarily driven by a one-time $1.5 million consent fee paid in connection with the execution of an assignment agreement in the first quarter of 2018 to assign one of our branch leases  during the three months ended March 31, 2018, which was recorded in occupancy and equipment expense. The decrease in occupancy and equipment expense was partially offset by data processing and software expense which increased $248 thousand as the Company converted Liberty’s operating systems into the Veritex information technology in the  three months ended June 30, 2018.

Compared to the three months ended June 30, 2017, noninterest expense for the three months ended June 30, 2018 increased $8.4 million, or 107.8%. The increase was driven by a $4.3 million increase in salaries and employee benefits expense primarily related to the additional full-time equivalent employees we retained as part of the Sovereign and Liberty acquisitions. Additionally, occupancy and equipment expense increased $1.1 million primarily due to increased lease payments, depreciation expense and property taxes incurred as a result of the Sovereign and Liberty acquisitions. Data processing and software expense increased $704 thousand primarily as a result of the Sovereign and Liberty acquisitions and the Liberty operating system conversion referenced above.  Amortization of intangibles increased $761 thousand primarily due to a $424 thousand increase in amortization of intangible in-place lease assets associated with the purchase of our headquarter building in December 2017.

Financial Condition

Total loans were $2.4 billion at June 30, 2018, an increase of $102.8 million, or 4.4%, compared to March 31, 2018. The net increase was the result of the continued execution and success of our loan growth strategy.

Total deposits were $2.5 billion at June 30, 2018, a decrease of $3.4 million, or 0.1%, compared to March 31, 2018. The decrease was primarily the result of a $117.0 million decrease in financial institution money market accounts partially offset by an increase of $24.3 million and $54.0 million in correspondent money market and brokered deposits accounts, respectively.

Asset Quality

Our allowance for loan losses as a percentage of loans was 0.61%, 0.58% and 0.87% of total loans at June 30, 2018, March 31, 2018 and June 30, 2017, respectively. The allowance for loan losses as a percentage of total loans for each of the three quarters ended was determined by the qualitative factors around the nature, volume and mix of the loan portfolio. The increase in the allowance for loan loss as a percentage of loans from March 31, 2018 was attributable to continued execution and success of our organic growth strategy and changes in mix of loans. The decrease in the allowance for loan loss as a percentage of total loans from June 30, 2017 was attributable to the completion of the Sovereign acquisition on August 1, 2017 and the Liberty acquisition on December 1, 2017, as acquired loans are recorded at fair value. We recorded a provision for loan losses of $1.5 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2018 compared to a provision of $678 thousand and $943 thousand for the quarter ended March 31, 2018 and June 30, 2017, respectively, due to an increase in our loans as well a recorded provision on purchased credit impaired loans of $307 thousand and $333 thousand compared to the quarter ended March 31, 2018 and June 30, 2017, respectively.

Nonperforming assets totaled $4.9 million, or 0.16%, of total assets at June 30, 2018 compared to $3.8 million, or 0.12%, of total assets at March 31, 2018 and $2.1 million, or 0.13%, of total assets at June 30, 2017. The increase of $1.1 million in nonperforming assets compared to March 31, 2018 was primarily due to an increase in non-accrual loans of $814 thousand. The increase of $2.8 million in nonperforming assets compared to June 30, 2017 was primarily due to an increase in nonperforming loans of $3.3 million partially offset by a decrease in other real estate owned of $493 thousand.

Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures - (Unaudited)

The following are the non-GAAP measures used in this release:

  • core net interest income adjusts net interest income as determined in accordance with GAAP to exclude income recognized on acquired loans
  • core noninterest income adjusts noninterest income as determined in accordance with GAAP to exclude gain on sale of disposed branch assets
  • core noninterest expense adjusts noninterest expense as determined in accordance with GAAP to exclude corporate development costs
  • core net income from operations is calculated as the sum of core net interest income and core noninterest income less provision from loan losses and core noninterest expense
  • core income tax expense adjusts income tax expense as determined in accordance with GAAP to exclude the tax impact of the adjustments to core net interest income and core noninterest expense, the re-measurement of our deferred tax asset as a result of the Tax Act and the tax impact of other corporate development discrete items
  • core net income adjusts net income as determined in accordance with GAAP to exclude the impact of income recognized on acquired loans, corporate development costs and the tax impact of the adjustments to core net interest income and core noninterest expense, exclude the re-measurement of our deferred tax asset as a result of the Tax Cut and Jobs Act and exclude the tax impact of other corporate development discrete items
  • core net income available to common stockholders adjusts core net income to exclude preferred stock dividends
  • core diluted EPS divides (i) core net income by (ii) weighted average diluted shares of common stock outstanding for the applicable period
  • core efficiency ratio is determined by dividing core noninterest expense by the sum of core net interest income and noninterest income
  • core net interest margin is determined by dividing core net interest income by average interest-earning assets
  • core return on average assets is determined by dividing core net income by average assets
  • tangible common equity is defined as total stockholders’ equity less goodwill and other intangible assets
  • tangible assets is defined as total assets less goodwill and other intangible assets
  • tangible common equity to tangible assets is a ratio that is determined by dividing tangible common equity by tangible assets
  • tangible book value per common share is determined by dividing tangible common equity by common shares outstanding

Management believes that the non-GAAP financial measures above that are used in managing its business may provide meaningful information to investors about underlying trends in its business and management uses these non-GAAP measures to measure the Company’s performance and believes that these non-GAAP measures provide a greater understanding of ongoing operations, enhance comparability of results of operations with prior periods and show the effects of significant gains and charges in the periods presented without the impact of unusual items or events that may obscure trends in the Company’s underlying performance. These disclosures should not be viewed as a substitute for financial measures determined in accordance with GAAP.
