IRVINE, Calif.--()--Pacific Premier Bancorp, Inc. (NASDAQ: PPBI)(the “Company”), the holding company of Pacific Premier Bank, reported net income for the first quarter of 2014 of $2.6 million, or $0.15 per diluted share, which included merger-related expenses of $626,000 associated with the acquisition of Infinity Franchise Holdings, LLC (“Infinity Franchise Holdings”).

The Company’s acquisition of Infinity Franchise Holdings was consummated on January 30, 2014. The value of the total consideration paid for Infinity Franchise Holdings was $17.4 million, which was based upon their adjusted net asset value at the closing date. The consideration consisted of 50% cash and 50% of the Company’s common stock. As a result of the consummation of this transaction, we acquired $80.2 million in total assets and $78.8 million of total loans outstanding.

For the fourth quarter of 2013, the Company recorded net income of $4.2 million, or $0.24 per share on a diluted basis, which included merger-related expenses of $203,000. For the first quarter of 2013, the Company recorded net income of $2.0 million, or $0.13 per share on a diluted basis, which included merger-related expenses of $1.7 million associated with the acquisition of First Associations Bank (“First Associations”).

Excluding merger-related expenses, the Company reported adjusted net income of $3.0 million, or $0.17 per share on a diluted basis, for the first quarter of 2014, compared with $4.3 million, or $0.24 per share on a diluted basis, for the fourth quarter of 2013, and $3.1 million, or $0.20 per share on a diluted basis, for the first quarter of 2013.

For the three months ended March 31, 2014, the Company’s return on average assets was 0.64%, compared with 1.05% for the three months ended December 31, 2013, and 0.67% for the three months ended March 31, 2013. For the three months ended March 31, 2014, the Company’s return on average tangible common equity was 7.22%, compared with 11.69% for the three months ended December 31, 2013, and 6.06% for the three months ended March 31, 2013.

Steven R. Gardner, President and Chief Executive Officer of the Company, commented on the results, “During the first quarter of 2014, we completed the integration and system conversion of Infinity Franchise Holdings. The $78.8 million in loans added through the acquisition provides us with attractive risk-adjusted yields. As a result of the loans added from the acquisition and $46.8 million in new business loan production, our C&I portfolio increased to 21% of total loans outstanding at March 31, 2014, up from 15% at the end of the prior quarter.

“In the first quarter of 2014, our loan portfolio continued to experience solid growth, with a 7% increase in total loans. However, the portfolio was impacted by $78 million in loan payoffs, which were concentrated in our CRE loan portfolio. With lenders offering fixed rate pricing in the mid to high three percent range, we were not willing to assume that level of interest rate risk to retain the loans. Looking ahead, we anticipate increasing loan production in the second quarter as our various business lines continue to attract a variety of lending opportunities, which is reflected in the growth of our pipeline to $247 million.

“We had a very productive quarter from a deposit gathering perspective. We experienced significant core deposit inflows from new commercial customers and our HOA line of business, which contributed to a $46 million, or 12.6%, increase in our non-interest bearing deposits during the first quarter of 2014. Our robust deposit growth during the first quarter of 2014 further contributed to our already strong liquidity position and further enhanced our franchise.

“Our operating expenses during the first quarter of 2014 were higher than our expected run-rate due to $626,000 in merger-related expenses and $549,000 in expenses related to a change in our payment processing system provider and an upgrade to our existing core system. The switch to a new, more cost-effective and robust payment and core system is expected to result in cost savings over the coming years. Going forward, we expect to see lower levels of operating expense which should result in an improvement in our profitability as we move through 2014,” said Mr. Gardner.

Net Interest Income and Net Interest Margin

Net interest income totaled $16.6 million in the first quarter of 2014, down $31,000 or 0.2% from the fourth quarter of 2013. The decrease in net interest income primarily reflected a decrease in the number of days in the quarter and a decrease in net interest margin of 2 basis points to 4.30%, partially offset by an increase in average interest-earning assets of $39.6 million. The decrease in the net interest margin was impacted by a previously reported $715,000 discount recognized from a loan payoff during the fourth quarter of 2013 that equated to 18 basis points of net interest margin benefit during that quarter. Excluding that recognized discount, the net interest margin would have increased by an adjusted 16 basis points reflecting an improved mix of higher yielding loans, an increase in loan yield by an adjusted 13 basis points and an increase in interest-earning assets, all of which is primarily attributable to our acquisition of Infinity Franchise Holdings. Partially offsetting these favorable items was an increase in the cost of interest-bearing liabilities of 3 basis points primarily related to the increase in interest-bearing deposit costs of 2 basis points. The increase in average interest-earning assets during the first quarter of 2014 was primarily related to an increase in our average loan portfolio of $71.2 million and average cash and cash equivalents of $7.7 million, partially offset by a decrease in investment securities of $39.5 million.

Net interest income for the first quarter of 2014 increased $3.7 million or 29.0%, compared to the first quarter of 2013. The increase in net interest income was primarily related to an increase in interest-earning assets of $436.1 million, primarily related to the acquisition of First Associations and San Diego Trust Bank in the first and second quarters of 2013, respectively, and organic loan growth. The increase was partially offset by a lower net interest margin, which decreased 32 basis points from the first quarter of 2013 to the first quarter of 2014. The decrease in the net interest margin was related to the rate on interest-earning assets decreasing more rapidly than the cost of interest-bearing liabilities. The decrease in interest-earning assets of 44 basis points is mainly attributable to a higher mix of lower yielding investment securities, which were acquired from First Associations and San Diego Trust Bank, and a decrease in our weighted average loan portfolio rate. The weighted average loan portfolio rate at the end of the first quarter of 2014 was 5.0%, 30 basis points lower than the weighted average loan portfolio rate at the end of the first quarter of 2013 and primarily reflected lower rates on loan originations during the period. Partially offsetting the lower yield on average interest-earning assets was a decrease in deposit costs of 13 basis points primarily resulting from an improved mix of lower cost deposits acquired from First Associations and San Diego Trust Bank and lower pricing on certificates of deposit.

Provision for Loan Losses

We recorded a $949,000 provision for loan losses during the first quarter of 2014, up from $596,000 for the fourth quarter of 2013 and up from $296,000 for the first quarter of 2013. The increase in the provision for loan losses in the first quarter of 2014 was attributable to both the changing profile of our loan portfolio and the net charge-off of $464,000 of loans primarily acquired from our FDIC acquisitions. Net loan charge-offs in the first quarter of 2014 were up $74,000 from the fourth quarter of 2013, and $168,000 from the first quarter of 2013. Substantially all of the charge-offs in the first quarter of 2014 were attributable to loans that we acquired from our FDIC-assisted transactions.

Noninterest income

Noninterest income for the first quarter of 2014 was $2.1 million, down $565,000 or 21.6% from the fourth quarter of 2013. The decrease from the prior quarter was primarily related to the following:

  • A $753,000 decrease in gains on the sale of loans. During the first quarter of 2014, we sold $4.7 million in Small Business Administration (“SBA”) loans at an overall premium of 11% and $4.8 million in commercial non-owner occupied and multi-family loans. That compares with sales of $10.9 million in SBA loans at a 10% overall premium, and $7.1 million in commercial real estate loans in the fourth quarter of 2013.
  • A $209,000 decrease in other income. During the first quarter of 2014, we recorded a $180,000 market value loss related to loans held for sale that were moved to loans held for investment.
  • A $109,000 decrease in net gains from sale of investment securities.

Partially offsetting these decreases were higher loan servicing fees of $545,000 primarily associated with the receipt of a $500,000 fee related to the assumption of an existing loan.

Compared with the first quarter of 2013, noninterest income for the first quarter of 2014 increased by $328,000 or 19.0%. The increase was primarily related to higher loan servicing fees of $530,000, primarily associated with the $500,000 fee related to the assumption of an existing loan in the first quarter of 2014, partially offset by lower net gains on sales of loans of $175,000 and other income of $146,000, primarily related to the $180,000 market value loss on loans held for sale.

Noninterest Expense

Noninterest expense totaled $13.5 million for the first quarter of 2014, up $1.5 million or 12.8%, compared with the fourth quarter of 2013. The increase was primarily related to the following:

  • A $605,000 increase in compensation and benefits costs, primarily related to increases in beginning of the year employer payroll taxes, employee compensation and healthcare cost;
  • A $423,000 increase in merger-related expenses associated with the acquisition of Infinity Franchise Holdings;
  • A $265,000 increase in data processing and communications expense, primarily related to a $357,000 fee paid to terminate services from our payment processing system provider for a new, more cost effective provider;
  • A $253,000 increase in legal, audit and professional fees, primarily associated with $192,000 paid for services related to the upgrade in our core operating system; and
  • A $115,000 increase in deposit expenses, primarily related to increase in deposit transaction accounts.

Partially offsetting these increases were decreases in marketing expense of $135,000 and loan expenses of $111,000.

Compared to the first quarter of 2013, noninterest expense for the first quarter of 2014 increased by $2.4 million or 21.1%. The increase in expense primarily related to the acquisitions of First Associations during the first quarter of 2013, San Diego Trust Bank in the second quarter of 2013 and Infinity Franchise Holdings in the first quarter of 2014, together with our organic growth. On a year-over-year basis, compensation and benefits expense increased $1.8 million, due to the addition of employees from the acquisitions, as well as employees added in lending and credit areas to increase our loan production of commercial and industrial (“C&I”) loans, commercial real estate (“CRE”) loans, SBA loans, homeowner association (“HOA”) loans, warehouse facilities and construction loans. Additionally, on a year-over-year basis, one-time merger-related expense declined by $1.1 million.

The Company’s efficiency ratio was 67.96%, 60.45% and 63.50% for the quarters ended March 31, 2014, December 31, 2013 and March 31, 2013, respectively. The increase in first quarter efficiency ratio was negatively impacted by combined costs associated with the termination of our payment processing system provider and an upgrade to our existing core system of $549,000 and a market value loss recognized of $180,000 on loans held for sale recorded in our noninterest income. These items were partially offset by the positive impact from the $500,000 fee paid on the assumption an existing loan.

Income Tax

For the first quarter of 2014, our effective tax rate was 37.3%, compared with a 37.1% for the fourth quarter of 2013 and 37.4% for the first quarter of 2013.

Assets and Liabilities

At March 31, 2014, assets totaled $1.7 billion, up $31.1 million or 1.8% from December 31, 2013, and up $338.6 million or 24.1% from March 31, 2013. The increase in assets during the first quarter of 2014 was primarily related to the acquisition of Infinity Franchise Holdings, which added assets at the acquisition date of $81.0 million and $5.5 million in goodwill, partially offset by a decrease in investment securities available for sale of $53.9 million. The increase in assets from March 31, 2013 was primarily related to the acquisition of San Diego Trust Bank, which added assets at the acquisition date of $211.2 million, and Infinity Franchise Holdings, as well as organic loan growth. In addition, during the period, loans increased $379.9 million inclusive of loans acquired; cash and cash equivalents increased $25.0 million and goodwill from acquisitions increased $11.1 million. These increases were partially offset by a decrease in investment securities available for sale of $99.0 million.

Investment securities available for sale totaled $202.1 million at March 31, 2014, down $53.9 million or 21.1% from December 31, 2013 and $99.0 million or 32.9% from March 31, 2013. The decrease in securities available for sale during the first quarter of 2014 was primarily due to sales totaling $56.0 million and principal pay downs of $6.2 million, partially offset by purchases of $5.5 million and increase in market value of $3.4 million. The decrease in securities from March 31, 2013 was primarily related to sales of $288.5 million and principal pay downs of $34.1 million, partially offset by $124.8 million added from the acquisition of San Diego Trust Bank and $106.8 million of investment security purchases. The purchase of investment securities primarily related to investing excess liquidity from our bank acquisitions, while the sales were made to help fund loan production and to improve our interest-earning asset mix by redeploying investment funds into loans.

Net loans held for investment totaled $1.3 billion at March 31, 2014, an increase of $84.8 million or 6.9% from December 31, 2013, and an increase of $382.9 million or 41.0% from March 31, 2013. The increase in loan balances for the first quarter of 2014 was primarily related to increases in C&I loans of $84.8 million, primarily from the acquisition of Infinity Franchise Holdings, construction loans of $16.8 million and commercial owner occupied loans of $2.8 million, partially offset by decreases in multi-family loans of $10.5 million, warehouse facilities loans of $6.5 million and one-to-four family loans of $3.8 million. The increase in loans from March 31, 2013 included $42.7 million in loans from the San Diego Trust Bank acquisition, and was primarily associated with increases in real estate loans of $244.1 million, commercial and industrial loans of $131.3 million and commercial owner occupied loans of $57.3 million, partially offset by a decrease in warehouse facility loans of $57.9 million.

Loan activity during the first quarter of 2014 included loan originations of $106.2 million, of which $69.5 million were funded at origination, loans acquired from Infinity Franchise Holdings of $78.8 million and loan purchases of $1.8 million, partially offset by loan repayments of $77.6 million, an increase in undisbursed loan funds of $17.7 million and loan sales of $9.5 million. During the first quarter of 2014, our loan originations were diversified across loan type and included $46.8 million in C&I loans which contained $8.1 million in HOA loans and $6.8 million in franchise business loans, $22.8 million in commercial non-owner occupied loans, $20.4 million in construction loans, $7.6 million in multifamily loans and $5.2 million in SBA loans. Loan originations for the first quarter of 2014 had a weighted average rate of 4.98%, compared to a weighted average rate of 4.92% in the previous quarter. At March 31, 2014, our loan to deposit ratio was 92.4%, down from 95.2% at December 31, 2013, but up from 79.8% at March 31, 2013.

March 31, 2014 deposits totaled $1.4 billion, up $128.9 million or 9.9% from December 31, 2013 and up $249.5 million or 21.0% from March 31, 2013. During the first quarter of 2014, we had deposit increases in noninterest bearing checking of $46.1 million, certificates of deposit of $41.0 million, money market of $25.7 million and checking of $16.4 million. Within the first quarter of 2014, transaction account increases of approximately $27 million to $30 million were related to seasonal increases in existing HOA management accounts attributed to annual billings and the receipt of homeowner’s dues. The increase in deposits since March 31, 2013 was primarily related to the San Diego Trust Bank acquisition, which added deposits of $183.9 million at a cost of 23 basis points at the acquisition date, partially offset by declines in deposit levels in the second through fourth quarters in 2013 of $63.3 million, mainly related to purposeful runoff of certificates of deposit, and the deposit activity in first quarter of 2014.

The total end of period weighted average cost of deposits at March 31, 2014 was 0.34%, up from 0.33% at December 31, 2013, but down from 0.37% at March 31, 2013.

At March 31, 2014, total borrowings amounted to $105.8 million, down $108.6 million or 50.6% from December 31, 2013, but up $51.3 million or 94.2% from March 31, 2013. The change in borrowings primarily related to overnight FHLB advances used to supplement the funding of loans as deposit levels fluctuate. Additionally, during the first quarter of 2014, repurchase agreement debt related to our HOA business decreased $1.6 million to $17.0 million. At March 31, 2014, total borrowings represented 6.1% of total assets and had an end of period weighted average cost of 1.22%, compared with 12.5% of total assets at a weighted average cost of 0.63% at December 31, 2013, and 3.9% of total assets at a weighted average cost of 2.29% at March 31, 2013.

Asset Quality

At March 31, 2014, nonperforming assets totaled $3.4 million or 0.20% of total assets, essentially equal to the total and percentage at December 31, 2013, but down from $4.7 million or 0.33% of total assets at March 31, 2013. During the first quarter of 2014, nonperforming loans increased $423,000 to total $2.7 million and other real estate owned decreased $434,000, related to the sale of a property, to $752,000.

At March 31, 2014, our allowance for loan losses was $8.7 million, up $485,000 from December 31, 2013 and $691,000 from March 31, 2013. At March 31, 2014, our allowance for loan losses as a percent of nonaccrual loans was 324.8%, down from 364.3% at December 31, 2013, but up from 257.7% at March 31, 2013. At March 31, 2014, the ratio of allowance for loan losses to total gross loans was 0.66%, equal to the percentage at December 31, 2013, but down from 0.85% at March 31, 2013. Including the loan fair market value discounts recorded in connection with our acquisitions, the allowance for loan losses to total gross loans ratio was 0.88% at March 31, 2014, compared with 0.93% at December 31, 2013 and 1.33% at March 31, 2013.

GAAP Reconciliations

For periods presented below, adjusted net income and adjusted diluted earnings per share are non-GAAP financial measures derived from GAAP-based amounts. We calculate these figures by excluding merger related expenses in period results. Management believes that the exclusion of such items from these financial measures provides useful information to an understanding of the operating results of our core business. However, these non-GAAP financial measures are supplemental and are not a substitute for an analysis based on GAAP measures. As other companies may use different calculations for these adjusted measures, this presentation may not be comparable to other similarly titled adjusted measures reported by other companies.

Diluted earnings per share $ 0.15 $ 0.24 $ 0.13

Adjusted diluted earnings per share $ 0.17 $ 0.24 $ 0.20
 

For periods presented below, adjusted net income and adjusted average tangible common equity are non-GAAP financial measures derived from GAAP-based amounts. We calculate these figures by adjusting net income for the effect of CDI amortization and exclude the average CDI and average goodwill from the average stockholders’ equity during the period. Management believes that the exclusion of such items from these financial measures provides useful information to an understanding of the operating results of our core business. However, these non-GAAP financial measures are supplemental and are not a substitute for an analysis based on GAAP measures. As other companies may use different calculations for these adjusted measures, this presentation may not be comparable to other similarly titled adjusted measures reported by other companies.

Tangible common equity to tangible assets (the "tangible common equity ratio") and tangible book value per share are non-GAAP financial measures derived from GAAP-based amounts. We calculate the tangible common equity ratio by excluding the balance of intangible assets from common stockholders’ equity and dividing by tangible assets. We calculate tangible book value per share by dividing tangible common equity by common shares outstanding, as compared to book value per share, which we calculate by dividing common stockholders’ equity by shares outstanding. We believe that this information is consistent with the treatment by bank regulatory agencies, which exclude intangible assets from the calculation of risk-based capital ratios. Accordingly, we believe that these non-GAAP financial measures provide information that is important to investors and that is useful in understanding our capital position and ratios. However, these non-GAAP financial measures are supplemental and are not a substitute for an analysis based on GAAP measures. As other companies may use different calculations for these measures, this presentation may not be comparable to other similarly titled measures reported by other companies.
