BOSTON--()--Boston Private Financial Holdings, Inc. (NASDAQ: BPFH) (the "Company" or "BPFH") today reported first quarter 2014 GAAP Net Income Attributable to the Company of $17.0 million, compared to $17.7 million in the fourth quarter of 2013. GAAP Net Income Attributable to the Company increased 29% on a year-over-year basis from $13.2 million in the first quarter of 2013. BPFH reported first quarter diluted earnings per share of $0.20, flat with the fourth quarter of 2013. Diluted earnings per share increased by 33% on a year-over-year basis from $0.15 in the first quarter of 2013.

"The first quarter was a good one for our Wealth Management businesses and our Private Bank," said Clayton G. Deutsch, CEO and President. "We are pleased with the NIM expansion and loan and deposit growth at our Private Bank. The Bank continues to demonstrate margin expansion. Our Wealth Advisors had another strong quarter, with fees increasing 2% quarter-over-quarter and 14% year-over-year. Our Investment Managers continue to face a challenging environment for active domestic equity strategies. Nevertheless, our Investment Managers grew revenue 14% year-over-year. Our Wealth Management affiliates overall are contributing strong margin expansion to our Company."

Core Fees Increased 6% Year-Over-Year

On a year-over-year basis, Core Fees and Income (Investment Management Fees, Private Banking Wealth Management and Trust Fees, Wealth Advisory Fees, Other Banking Fee Income and Gain on Sale of Loans) increased 6% to $31.7 million due to double-digit growth in Wealth Advisory Fees and Investment Management Fees. On a linked quarter basis, Core fees decreased 4% from $32.8 million in the fourth quarter of 2013. The decrease was driven by a decline in Investment Management Fees and a decline in Other Banking Fee Income. Fourth quarter 2013 Investment Management Fees included $1.2 million in seasonal performance fees.

Total Assets Under Management/Advisory ("AUM") increased to $24.7 billion in the first quarter, up 2% from $24.3 billion in the fourth quarter of 2013. AUM increased 13% from $21.9 billion in the first quarter of 2013. The Company experienced first quarter 2014 AUM net inflows of $103 million, as compared to fourth quarter 2013 AUM net inflows of $147 million. AUM net inflows for the first quarter of 2013 were $181 million.

Net Interest Income Increased 2% Linked Quarter

Net Interest Income in the first quarter was $44.5 million, up 2% from $43.5 million in the fourth quarter of 2013. On a year-over-year basis, Net Interest Income increased 1% from $44.3 million.

Net Interest Margin was 3.04% in the first quarter, up six basis points from 2.98% in the fourth quarter. Net Interest Margin decreased six basis points from 3.10% in the first quarter of 2013.

"Our NIM expanded in the first quarter as a result of specific actions taken in the fourth quarter," said David J. Kaye, Chief Financial Officer. "Late in the fourth quarter we deployed excess cash into investment securities and restructured some FHLB borrowings which lowered our borrowing costs."

Total Operating Expenses Decreased 1% Linked Quarter, 3% Year-Over-Year

Total Operating Expenses for the first quarter of 2014 were $55.0 million, down 1% from $55.5 million in the fourth quarter of 2013. First quarter expenses were elevated by seasonal compensation expenses such as increased 401(k) employee contribution matches and FICA. On a year-over-year basis, Total Operating Expenses decreased 3% from $56.6 million due primarily to savings in compensation and benefits.

Provision Credit of $1.2M Driven By Net Recoveries

The Company recorded a $1.2 million credit to its Provision for Loan Losses in the first quarter of 2014, compared to a provision credit of $2.0 million in the fourth quarter. The provision credit was driven by net recoveries of $1.4 million. The Company recorded no provision in the first quarter of 2013.

Criticized Loans increased 8% to $187.3 million on a linked quarter basis, and decreased 16% year-over-year. The increase was driven primarily by the downgrade of one pass rated loan to Special Mention in Southern California. Nonaccrual Loans ("Nonaccruals") decreased 6% to $42.1 million, down from $44.8 million on a linked quarter basis. On a year-over-year basis, Nonaccruals decreased 42% from $73.0 million. As a percentage of Total Loans, Nonaccruals were 81 basis points at March 31, 2014, down 6 basis points from 87 basis points at December 31, 2013, and down 72 basis points from 1.53% at March 31, 2013.

      Adjustments to net income attributable to the Company to arrive at net income attributable to the common shareholders, as presented in these tables, include decrease/ (increase) in noncontrolling interests redemption value, dividends paid on preferred stock, and dividends on participating securities.

      When the Company has positive net income from continuing operations attributable to the common shareholders, the Company adds additional shares to basic weighted average shares outstanding to arrive at diluted weighted average shares outstanding for the diluted earnings per share calculation. These additional shares reflect the assumed exercise, conversion, or contingent issuance of dilutive securities. If the additional shares would result in anti-dilution they would be excluded from the diluted earning per share calculation. The potential dilutive shares relate to: unexercised stock options, unvested non-participating restricted stock, and unexercised stock warrants. See Part II. Item 8. "Financial Statements and Supplementary Data - Note 16: Earnings Per Share" in the Company's Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2013 for additional information.
