Atlantic Coast Financial Corporation Third Quarter 2016 Earnings Increase to $0.10 Per Diluted Share

JACKSONVILLE, Fla.--()--Atlantic Coast Financial Corporation (NASDAQ: ACFC):

  • Earnings per diluted share grew 43% over the same quarter last year.
  • Loans increased 30% over the last 12 months, while deposits grew 24% over the last 12 months.
  • Interest rate sensitivity has become more neutral as a result of investment security and loan sales in 2016.
  • Impaired loans remain flat, while nonperforming assets grew as a result of continued strong credit management on two legacy loans, which are both currently carried below market values.
  • Bank has received approval to convert to a Florida state charter.

Atlantic Coast Financial Corporation (Atlantic Coast or the Company, NASDAQ: ACFC), the holding company for Atlantic Coast Bank (the Bank), today reported earnings per diluted share of $0.10 for the third quarter of 2016 compared with earnings of $0.07 in the same quarter last year. The Company's results for the third quarter of 2016 included a gain on the sale of investment securities in August 2016 totaling $0.5 million, which added approximately $0.02 to earnings per diluted share for the third quarter of 2016. Therefore, core earnings per diluted share, which excludes the impact of the investment securities transaction discussed above, increased 14% to $0.08 for the third quarter of 2016 from $0.07 for the third quarter of 2015. Core earnings per diluted share is a non-GAAP financial measure, and a reconciliation of GAAP to non-GAAP financial measures is presented on page five.

Earnings per diluted share for the first nine months of 2016 totaled $0.29 compared with $0.46 for the first nine months of 2015. The Company's results for the first nine months of 2016 included gains on the sale of investment securities in February and August 2016 totaling $1.3 million, which added approximately $0.05 to earnings per diluted share for the first nine months of 2016. Results for the year-earlier period included the positive impact of the reversal of a valuation allowance against the Company's deferred tax asset, which was partially offset by penalties associated with the early prepayment of some of the Company's wholesale debt. Together these transactions added approximately $0.34 to earnings per diluted share for the first nine months of 2015. Excluding the impact of the transactions discussed above, core earnings per diluted share nearly doubled to $0.23 for the first nine months of 2016 from $0.12 for the first nine months of 2015.

Commenting on the Company's results, John K. Stephens, Jr., President and Chief Executive Officer, said, "Atlantic Coast turned in another strong performance for the third quarter of 2016. We are particularly pleased to note the 30% increase in total loans since September 30, 2015, which continued to drive our solid balance sheet growth and contribute positively to net interest margin and our overall momentum in earnings. These results reflect an ongoing strengthening in our business and the markets we serve, especially in Florida, along with great commitment and dedication from our team members, as we work together to grow our banking platform. At the same time, our continued focus on asset quality has enabled us to keep our credit costs low and further augmented our earnings growth. Having said that, the increase in nonperforming loans this quarter is the result of our approach to resolve two particular loan issues related to legacy loans excluded from the bulk sale in 2013, both of which were already classified as impaired. These loans are both carried below current market values; therefore, we do not anticipate any issues with resolving them. Absent these loans, which were originated prior to the 2008 credit crisis, the level of delinquency and nonperforming assets remains at a very strong level. In summary, we are quite pleased with the third quarter's results and believe they are a tangible indication of the success we have attained in creating a premier bank in our markets, one that is well positioned to capitalize on the opportunities ahead."

Other significant highlights of the third quarter and first nine months of 2016 include:

  • Net interest income improved to $6.9 million and $19.4 million for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2016, respectively, from $5.8 million and $15.2 million for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2015, respectively. Additionally, net interest margin was 3.19% and 3.08% for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2016, respectively, compared with 3.24% and 2.89% for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2015, respectively.
  • Total loans (including portfolio loans, loans held-for-sale, and warehouse loans held-for-investment) increased 18% to $774.3 million at September 30, 2016, from $654.2 million at December 31, 2015, and were up 30% from $595.0 million at September 30, 2015. Total loan growth since September 30, 2015, primarily reflected originations in all lines of business, supplemented by selective loan acquisitions.
  • Nonperforming assets, as a percentage of total assets, was 1.46% at September 30, 2016, compared with 0.87% at December 31, 2015, and 0.92% at September 30, 2015.
  • Total assets increased to $936.9 million at September 30, 2016, from $857.2 million at December 31, 2015, and $818.0 million at September 30, 2015, primarily due to an increase in loans, which was partially offset by a decrease in investment securities.
  • The Bank's ratios of total risk-based capital to risk-weighted assets and Tier 1 (core) capital to adjusted total assets were 12.73% and 9.09%, respectively, at September 30, 2016, and each continued to exceed the levels – 10% and 5%, respectively – currently required for the Bank to be considered well-capitalized.

Tracy L. Keegan, Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer, added, "We have continued to strategically shift the mix and sensitivity of our balance sheet this year, taking advantage of opportunities in the market as they presented themselves. The sales in the investment portfolio, as an example, reduced the volatility of that portfolio in a rising-rate environment and provided gains to compensate for lost interest income until alternative securities are identified. We believe the neutralization of our interest rate sensitivity far outweighs the interest lost in the short-term on these sales, as well as the sales in our 30-year fixed rate residential mortgage portfolio. Although the gains realized on these transactions aren't considered core earnings, they were strategically structured to cover lost interest income until the cash could be re-deployed. Along with ongoing earnings growth, we have attracted more than $120 million in additional deposits, increasing total deposits 24% since September 30, 2015, primarily in savings and money market deposits. Deposit costs have risen somewhat due to these efforts, but the net effect has been a solid increase in net interest margin, which rose 19 basis points for the first nine months of 2016 compared with that for the same period last year. With a stronger balance sheet and increased diversification in our loan portfolio, we believe Atlantic Coast is poised for additional growth and further improvements in its results of operations."

Although nonperforming assets were higher at the end of the third quarter of 2016 compared with the end of the second and year-earlier quarters, coming off of an exceptionally low base, the Company's overall credit quality remains strong. Aside from the reclassification of two specific loans to nonperforming during the third quarter, the general pace of loans reclassified to nonperforming and other real estate owned (OREO) continued to slow.

The provision for portfolio loan losses was virtually unchanged in the third quarter of 2016 compared with the second quarter of 2016 and the third quarter of 2015, reflecting solid economic conditions in the Company's markets during the current year, which has led to continued low levels of net charge-offs over the past 12 months. The increase in the allowance for portfolio loan losses at September 30, 2016, from September 30, 2015, was primarily attributable to loan growth, which reflected significant organic growth, supplemented by strategic loan purchases, partially offset by principal amortization and increased prepayments of one- to four-family residential mortgages and home equity loans. Management believes the allowance for portfolio loan losses as of September 30, 2016, is sufficient to absorb losses in portfolio loans as of the end of the period.

Net charge-offs were higher in the third quarter of 2016 compared with those in the same period in 2015, reflecting an increase in charge-offs in commercial real estate loans and manufactured home loans, as well as a decrease in recoveries in land loans, partially offset by a decrease in charge-offs in unsecured consumer loans. Net charge-offs were higher during the first nine months of 2016 compared with those in the same period in 2015, reflecting an increase in charge-offs in commercial real estate loans, certain consumer loans, including auto loans and manufactured home loans, as well as both an increase in charge-offs and a decrease in recoveries on commercial business loans. These changes were partially offset by an increase in recoveries in one- to four-family residential loans and home equity loans and a decrease in charge-offs in unsecured consumer loans.

Rates paid on borrowed funds 1.21 % 2.01 % 2.38 % 1.87 % 3.26 %
 

The increase in net interest margin during the first nine months of 2016 compared with net interest margin for the first nine months of 2015 primarily reflected a decrease in rates paid on borrowed funds, as the Company continued to benefit from the prepayment and restructuring of some of its high-cost wholesale debt late in the second quarter of 2015, the effect of which was partially offset by the loss of interest income due to the sale of investment securities this year. Also, contributing to the increase in net interest margin was an increase in higher-margin interest-earning assets outstanding, reflecting the Company's ongoing redeployment of excess liquidity to grow its portfolio loans, loans held-for-sale, and warehouse loans held-for-investment.

The increase in noninterest income for the third quarter of 2016 compared with that of the third quarter of 2015 and for the first nine months of 2016 compared with the first nine months of 2015 primarily reflected higher gains on the sale of investment securities. The increase in noninterest expense during the third quarter of 2016 compared with that of the third quarter of 2015 primarily reflected the increased incentive compensation costs associated with the successful execution of the Company's growth strategies. The decrease in noninterest expense during the first nine months of 2016 compared with that of the first nine months of 2015 primarily reflected penalties associated with the prepayment of some of the Company's high-cost wholesale debt during the second quarter of 2015, partially offset by increased incentive compensation costs associated with the Company's continuing growth strategies.

The increase in income tax expense for the third quarter of 2016 compared with that of the third quarter of 2015 reflected the increase in income before income tax expense. The increase in income tax expense for the first nine months of 2016 compared with that of the first nine months of 2015 reflected the aforementioned positive impact of the reversal of a valuation allowance against the Company's deferred tax asset during the second quarter of 2015, as well as the increase in income before income tax expense.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

This press release includes the discussion of non-GAAP financial measures: core earnings and core earnings per diluted share. A "non-GAAP financial measure" is generally defined as a numerical measure of a company's historical or future financial performance, financial position, or cash flows that either excludes or includes amounts, or is subject to adjustments, so as to be different from the most directly comparable measure calculated and presented in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP). Core earnings and core earnings per diluted share exclude the effects of certain transactions that occurred during the period, as detailed in the following reconciliation of these measures.

Core earnings and core earnings per diluted share should be viewed in addition to, and not in lieu of, net income and income per diluted share on a GAAP basis. Atlantic Coast's management believes that the non-GAAP financial measures, when considered together with GAAP financial measures, provide information that is useful to investors in understanding period-over-period operating results separate and apart from items that may, or could, have a disproportionately positive or negative impact on results in any particular period. Atlantic Coast's management also believes that the non-GAAP financial measures enhance the ability of investors to analyze the Company's business trends and to understand the Company's performance. In addition, the Company may utilize non-GAAP financial measures as guides in forecasting, budgeting and long-term planning processes and to measure operating performance for some management compensation purposes. Non-GAAP financial measures should be considered in addition to, and not as a substitute for, or superior to, financial measures prepared in accordance with GAAP.

(1)

Non-GAAP financial measure. Because the Company does not currently have any intangible assets, tangible stockholders' equity is equal to stockholders' equity, tangible assets is equal to assets, and tangible book value is equal to book value. Accordingly, no reconciliations are required for these measures.
