PNFP Reports Record Earnings Per Share of $0.52 for Third Quarter

Loans increased 11.4 percent over last year

Loan, core deposit and revenue growth produce operating leverage

NASHVILLE, Tenn.--()--Pinnacle Financial Partners, Inc. (Nasdaq/NGS: PNFP) reported net income per diluted common share of $0.52 for the quarter ended Sept. 30, 2014, compared to net income per diluted common share of $0.42 for the quarter ended Sept. 30, 2013, an increase of 23.8 percent. Net income per diluted common share was $1.48 for the nine months ended Sept. 30, 2014, compared to net income per diluted common share of $1.23 for the nine months ended Sept. 30, 2013, an increase of 20.3 percent.

“Our performance in the third quarter of 2014 represents our seventh consecutive quarter of record earnings per share for the shareholders of our firm,” said M. Terry Turner, Pinnacle’s president and chief executive officer. “We continue to experience strong organic loan growth as well as strong growth in revenues and profitability. End-of-period loan balances increased by 11.4 percent year over year, while average non-interest bearing deposits increased by 19.7 percent during the same period. Our third quarter results place us in great position to achieve our 2014 growth targets.”

GROWING THE CORE EARNINGS CAPACITY OF THE FIRM:

  • Loans at Sept. 30, 2014 were a record $4.421 billion, an increase of $105.7 million from June 30, 2014. Loans increased $451.9 million from Sept. 30, 2013, a year-over-year growth rate of 11.4 percent.
  • Average balances of noninterest-bearing deposit accounts were $1.317 billion in the third quarter of 2014 and represented approximately 28.3 percent of total average deposit balances for the quarter, another record for the firm. Third quarter 2014 average noninterest-bearing deposits increased 19.7 percent over the same quarter last year.
  • Revenues (excluding securities gains and losses) for the quarter ended Sept. 30, 2014 were a record $62.4 million, an increase of $2.6 million from $59.8 million in the second quarter of 2014. Revenues (excluding securities gains and losses) increased 8.7 percent over the same quarter last year.
  • Return on average assets was 1.25 percent for the third quarter of 2014, compared to 1.21 percent for the second quarter of 2014 and 1.09 percent for the same quarter last year. Third quarter 2014 return on average tangible equity amounted to 13.69 percent, compared to 13.50 percent for the second quarter of 2014 and 12.71 percent for the same quarter last year.

“We remain optimistic about our ability to achieve our 2014 end-of-year loan targets,” Turner said. “Our 2014 third quarter annualized net loan growth rate of 9.8 percent exceeded our 2013 third quarter annualized net loan growth rate of 4.5 percent, providing further evidence of the achievability of our three-year growth targets for the period ending December 2014. As our focus turns to the next three-year period, we expect firms that are capable of efficient and effective core deposit acquisition will be the banking firms ultimately rewarded by investors. For that reason, we are pleased with the nearly 20 percent annual growth rate in demand deposits.”

OTHER THIRD QUARTER 2014 HIGHLIGHTS:

  • Revenue growth
    • Net interest income for the quarter ended Sept. 30, 2014 was $49.5 million, compared to $47.2 million for the second quarter of 2014 and $44.6 million for the third quarter of 2013.
      • The firm’s net interest margin increased to 3.79 percent for the quarter ended Sept. 30, 2014, up from 3.71 percent last quarter and 3.72 percent for the quarter ended Sept. 30, 2013.
    • Noninterest income for the quarter ended Sept. 30, 2014 was $12.9 million, compared to $12.6 million for the second quarter of 2014 and $11.4 million for the same quarter last year.
      • Other fees increased by $512,000 between the second and third quarters of 2014 due to several factors, including gains on other investments and increased interchange revenues. Other fees decreased $702,000 between the quarters ended Sept. 30, 2014 and 2013 primarily due to a $1.1 million gain on the sale of the government guaranteed portion of a loan in the third quarter of 2013.

“Our net interest margin improvement was primarily attributable to higher loan yields and continued lower funding costs,” said Harold R. Carpenter, Pinnacle’s chief financial officer. “Average loan yields for the third quarter of 2014 increased by seven basis points compared to the second quarter of 2014, while our cost of funds decreased by one basis point. Loan yields increased due to several factors, including recognition of interest income on loans previously classified as nonaccrual and the favorable impact of certain hedging activities entered into during the second quarter of 2014. Looking to the fourth quarter, we believe our net interest income should expand based on volume increases, while our net interest margin will likely contract modestly but remain well within our previous guidance.”

  • Noninterest expense
    • Noninterest expense for the quarter ended Sept. 30, 2014 was $34.4 million, compared to $33.9 million in the second quarter of 2014 and $33.3 million in the same quarter last year.
      • Equipment and occupancy expense increased by $560,000 compared to the second quarter of 2014, primarily due to a $460,000 write-off of equipment resulting from the decision to outsource certain services to a third party provider.
      • Other real estate owned expenses (OREO) were $417,000 in the third quarter of 2014, compared to $226,000 in the second quarter of 2014 and $699,000 in the same quarter last year.
      • Other noninterest expense decreased by $147,000 in the third quarter of 2014 compared to the second quarter of 2014, and by $660,000 compared to the third quarter of 2013, primarily due to costs associated with the resolution of a legal matter during the third quarter of 2013.

“Our third quarter results reflect an efficiency ratio of 55.0 percent, which is another record for the firm,” Carpenter said. “Our goal is to continue to increase the operating leverage of our firm primarily through increased revenues while maintaining effective cost controls. That said, we believe that in order to remain a high performing franchise, prudent management of our expense base will continue to be a requirement.”

  • Asset quality
    • Nonperforming assets were $34.0 million at Sept. 30, 2014, compared to $28.6 million at June 30, 2014 and $35.5 million at Sept. 30, 2013. Nonperforming assets were 0.77 percent of total loans and ORE at Sept. 30, 2014, compared to 0.66 percent at June 30, 2014 and 0.89 percent at Sept. 30, 2013.
    • The allowance for loan losses represented 1.50 percent of total loans at Sept. 30, 2014, compared to 1.55 percent at June 30, 2014 and 1.70 percent at Sept. 30, 2013. The ratio of the allowance for loan losses to nonperforming loans was 305.6 percent at Sept. 30, 2014, compared to 426.6 percent at June 30, 2014 and 336.6 percent at Sept. 30, 2013.
      • Net charge-offs were $1.6 million for the quarter ended Sept. 30, 2014, compared to $890,000 for the second quarter of 2014 and $2.1 million for the quarter ended Sept. 30, 2013. Annualized net charge-offs as a percentage of average loans for the quarter ended Sept. 30, 2014 were 0.14 percent, compared to 0.21 percent for the quarter ended Sept. 30, 2013.
      • Provision for loan losses increased from $685,000 for the third quarter of 2013 to $851,000 for the third quarter of 2014. The provision was $254,000 for the second quarter of 2014.

“Total nonperforming loans increased by $6.0 million between Sept. 30, 2014 and June 30, 2014,” Carpenter said. “At Sept. 30, 2014, approximately $15.6 million of the $21.6 million in nonperforming loans are performing pursuant to their contractual terms. We expect that our credit metrics will continue to be in the top quartile of most peer groups and provide us with additional credit leverage for the remainder of this year and next.”

SELECTED QUARTERLY FINANCIAL DATA – UNAUDITED
 
1. Ratios are presented on an annualized basis.
2. Net interest margin is the result of net interest income on a tax equivalent basis divided by average interest earning assets.
3. Total revenue is equal to the sum of net interest income and noninterest income.
4. Efficiency ratios are calculated by dividing noninterest expense by the sum of net interest income and noninterest income.
5. Troubled debt restructurings include loans where the company, as a result of the borrower’s financial difficulties, has granted a credit concession to the borrower (i.e., interest only payments for a significant period of time, extending the maturity of the loan, etc.). All of these loans continue to accrue interest at the contractual rate.

6. Average risk ratings are based on an internal loan review system which assigns a numeric value of 1 to 10 to all loans to commercial entities based on their underlying risk characteristics as of the end of each quarter. A “1” risk rating is assigned to credits that exhibit Excellent risk characteristics, “2” exhibit Very Good risk characteristics, “3” Good, “4” Satisfactory, “5” Acceptable or Average, “6” Watch List, “7” Criticized, “8” Classified or Substandard, “9” Doubtful and “10” Loss (which are charged-off immediately). Additionally, loans rated “8” or worse that are not nonperforming or restructured loans are considered potential problem loans. Generally, consumer loans are not subjected to internal risk ratings.

7. Annualized net loan charge-offs to average loans ratios are computed by annualizing year-to-date net loan charge-offs and dividing the result by average loans for the year-to-date period.
8. Capital ratios are defined as follows:

Equity to total assets – End of period total stockholders’ equity as a percentage of end of period assets.

Tangible common equity to total assets – End of period total stockholders' equity less end of period goodwill, core deposit and other intangibles as a percentage of end of period assets.

Leverage – Tier one capital (pursuant to risk-based capital guidelines) as a percentage of adjusted average assets.
Tier one risk-based – Tier one capital (pursuant to risk-based capital guidelines) as a percentage of total risk-weighted assets.
Total risk-based – Total capital (pursuant to risk-based capital guidelines) as a percentage of total risk-weighted assets.

Classified asset – Classified assets as a percentage of Tier 1 capital plus allowance for loan losses.

Tier one common equity to risk weighted assets – Tier 1 capital (pursuant to risk-based capital guidelines) less the amount of any preferred stock or subordinated indebtedness that is considered as a component of tier 1 capital as a percentage of total risk-weighted assets.

9. Book value per share computed by dividing total stockholders’ equity less preferred stock and common stock warrants by common shares outstanding.
10. Amounts are included in the statement of operations in “Gains on mortgage loans sold, net”, net of commissions paid on such amounts.
11. At fair value, based on information obtained from Pinnacle’s third party broker/dealer for non-FDIC insured financial products and services.
12. Core deposits include all transaction deposit accounts, money market and savings accounts and all certificates of deposit issued in a denomination of less than $250,000.
The ratio noted above represents total core deposits divided by total funding, which includes total deposits, FHLB advances, securities sold under agreements to repurchase, subordinated indebtedness and all other interest-bearing liabilities.
13. Associate retention rate is computed by dividing the number of associates employed at quarter-end less the number of associates that have resigned in the last 12 months by the number of associates employed at quarter-end.
14. Employment and unemployment data is from BERC- MTSU & Bureau of Labor Statistics. Labor force data is seasonally adjusted. The most recent quarter data presented is as of the most recent month that data is available as of the release date. Historical data is subject to update by the BERC- MTSU & Bureau of Labor Statistics. Historical data is presented based on the most recently reported data available by the BERC- MTSU & Bureau of Labor Statistics. The Nashville home data is from the Greater Nashville Association of Realtors.
15. Adjusted pre-tax, pre-provision income excludes the impact of investment gains and losses on sales and impairments, net and non-credit related loan losses as well as other real estate owned expenses and FHLB restructuring charges.
16. Represents month's supply of homes currently listed with MLS based on current sales activity in the Nashville MSA.
17. Represents investment gains (losses) on sales and impairments, net occurring as a result of both credit losses and losses incurred as the result of a change in management's intention to sell a bond prior to the recovery of its amortized cost basis.

18. The dividend payout ratio is calculated as the sum of the annualized dividend rate divided by the trailing 12-months diluted earnings per share as of the dividend declaration date.
