Commerce Union Bancshares, Inc. Reports Higher Loans and Deposits for First Quarter

Loans Increase 12.0% to a Record $697.6 Million

Deposits Increase 25.6% to a Record of $826.2 Million

BRENTWOOD, Tenn.--()--Commerce Union Bancshares, Inc. (NASDAQ: CUBN), parent of Reliant Bank, today announced its results for the first quarter of 2017, including growth in loans to $697.6 million – an increase of 12.0% since March 31, 2016, and 4.6% since December 31, 2016, – and deposits of $826.2 million – an increase of 25.6% over the prior year and 8.2% since December 31, 2016. First quarter net income attributable to common shareholders was $2.1 million, or $0.26 per fully diluted share, compared to $2.2 million, or $0.30 per fully diluted share, recorded in the first quarter of 2016.

“Our first quarter results highlight our increased momentum in loan and deposit growth since last year,” said William R. DeBerry, Chairman and CEO of Commerce Union Bancshares. “We expect continued growth in 2017 due to the strong economy across our markets, our expansion into the fast growing Chattanooga market, and the recent addition of a new branch in the deposit-rich Green Hills area in Nashville.”

Commenting on the results, DeVan Ard, CEO of Reliant Bank and President of the Company, said, “Our loan production hit $85.3 million in the first quarter, a new quarterly record for Reliant Bank, and a 31.8% increase over last year’s first quarter loan production. Nashville’s economy is expanding with job growth and business expansion that is driving our loan growth. We are also benefiting from robust residential and commercial real estate development, and record highs relevant to median home prices in our key markets of Williamson, Davidson and Sumner counties in Middle Tennessee. In fact, our three primary markets have shown the highest job growth in the Nashville region over the past five years, with Williamson County leading the way at 29%.”

Ard further stated, “Our focus remains on quality loan production and we continue to be cautious about lending to certain market sectors due to potential over-building combined with the sharp rise in real estate prices over the past three years. We remain positive that the strong economic dynamics of the greater Nashville market combined with our expansion into Chattanooga will continue to support our growth and profitability goals in 2017.”

First Quarter Activities Set Stage for Future Growth

Reliant’s key activities during the first quarter that impacted earnings and set the stage for future growth included:

  • Expanding outside Middle Tennessee into Chattanooga, one of the state’s fastest growing metropolitan markets – opening a new office in the city and hiring a new lending team to expand loans, deposits and treasury management opportunities.
  • Opening a new, full-service branch in deposit-rich Green Hills, an affluent area in Nashville, Tennessee. The branch is strategically located on the main corridor in Green Hills that connects Franklin to Nashville on Hillsboro Road.
  • Adding five new commercial lenders, including seasoned lenders at Green Hills and the Chattanooga team referred to above.
  • Adding key positions to Reliant’s management team including a Chief Strategy Officer to oversee the creation and implementation of strategic initiatives that advance growth opportunities, and a Chief Risk Officer to navigate through the web of regulations and procedures that depository institutions must follow, while connecting operational risk frameworks to key decisions that drive strategic growth.
  • Proactively laying the groundwork for strategic investments with the March 2017 filing of a $75 million shelf registration.

“The overarching goal of the Reliant Bank team is to create an organization that readily adapts to change and is positioned for long-lasting success and prosperity. We recognize the importance of a careful strategy to build market share,” said Ard. “Our first-quarter results reflect the commitment to that goal.”

Non-interest expense 6,869 6,827 0.6 8,637 (20.5 )

Related financial highlights of the quarter consisted of the following:

  • Net income attributable to common shareholders amounted to $2.1 million in the first quarter of 2017, compared to $2.2 million in the first quarter of 2016, and $2.0 million in the fourth quarter of 2016. The slight decrease in earnings from the prior year was due to the increase in the provision for loan losses, lower net discount accretion associated with the merger of Commerce Union Bank and Reliant Bank, and higher personnel costs related to the expansion into Chattanooga and the staffing of the new Green Hills office. The slight increase in earnings from the fourth quarter of 2016 was driven mainly by investment security gains recognized in the first quarter of 2017 vs. losses recognized in the fourth quarter of 2016 in connection with our bond replacement strategy executed late in the fourth quarter of 2016 and completed in the first quarter of 2017, as well as a reduction in income tax expense discussed further below. In addition to the bond replacement strategy anticipated to provide better yields, we added approximately $20.9 million of investment securities in the first quarter of 2017 that are expected to provide additional interest income.
  • Return on average assets for the three months ended March 31, 2017, was 0.89%, compared to 1.03% for the first quarter of 2016, and 0.87% for the fourth quarter of 2016.
  • Return on average equity for the three months ended March 31, 2017, was 7.71%, compared to 9.02% in the first quarter of 2016, and 7.33% the fourth quarter of 2016.
  • The net interest margin for the three months ended March 31, 2017, was 4.01%, compared to 4.08% in the first quarter of 2016, and 4.03% for the fourth quarter of 2016. The decline in net interest margin was due to lower yields on new loans, and a reduction in purchase accounting discount accretion, partially offset by higher yields on investment securities.
  • The efficiency ratio (excluding its mortgage subsidiary) for the three months ended March 31, 2017, was 60.5% compared to 58.9% in the first quarter of 2016, and 58.0% for the fourth quarter of 2016. The change in our efficiency ratio was primarily driven by our expansionary activities discussed earlier in this release.
  • Total interest income rose to $9.0 million in the first quarter of 2017, up 0.7%, compared to the first quarter of 2016, and up 0.3% compared to the fourth quarter of 2016. The increase was driven by growth in earning assets, including loans and investment securities.
  • Net interest income was $8.0 million in the first quarter of 2017, down 1.4% from the prior year and 0.9% from the previous quarter. The decrease was primarily attributable to lower discount accretion referred to above and an increase in funding costs.
  • Provision for loan losses was $410,000 for the first quarter of 2017, compared to $165,000 in the prior year, and $208,000 in the fourth quarter of 2016. This increase was driven both by our growth in loans and slight increase in charge offs compared to previous quarters.
  • Noninterest income was $1.1 million in the first quarter of 2017, compared to $3.8 million in the first quarter of 2016 and $0.9 million in the fourth quarter of 2016. The decline in mortgage related income compared to the prior year was due to lower sales of mortgage loans from the transition of the majority of out-of-market mortgage offices to another bank early in the second quarter of 2016. The growth in noninterest income from the fourth quarter of 2016 was due primarily to the loss on the sale of securities being recorded in the fourth quarter of 2016, compared to a small gain recorded in the first quarter of 2017.
  • Noninterest expenses were $6.9 million in the first quarter of 2017, compared to $8.6 million in the prior year, and $6.8 million in the fourth quarter of 2016. A substantial portion of the decline from the prior year was driven by a reduction of mortgage personnel due to the transition of out-of-market offices referred to above. The slight first quarter increase was mainly related to our expansionary activities previously referred to above.

Income tax expense totaled $272,000 in the first quarter of 2017, compared to $568,000 in the first quarter of 2016, and $438,000 in the fourth quarter of 2016. The tax rate was favorably impacted by an increase in income from tax-exempt securities, excess tax benefits recognized relating to the exercise of stock options and the addition of certain state tax credits on interest-free loans.

Strong Capital Position

Reliant Bank’s capital position remained strong at March 31, 2017. During the first quarter, the Company raised $411,000 of capital through the exercise of Company stock options. The additional capital was pushed-down to the Bank. Despite the $50.5 million increase in assets, the Bank maintained a March 31, 2017, Tier 1 leverage ratio of 10.69%, compared to 10.75% at December 31, 2016. Stockholders’ equity rose to $109.6 million and tangible book value per share grew to $12.36 at March 31, 2017. The Bank’s capital ratios are expected to be maintained significantly above the ratios of a “well-capitalized” institution.

“Our outlook for 2017 remains very positive based on our strong pipeline for loans, a solid economy that supports our markets and the opening of new offices in fast growing markets. We expect continued improvements in our operating efficiency and remain focused on maintaining our asset quality as a key part of building long-term shareholder value,” concluded Ard.

Accounting Treatment for the Mortgage Venture

The consolidated balance sheets and statements of operations include the operation of the Bank’s majority-controlled subsidiary, Reliant Mortgage Ventures, LLC. For financial accounting purposes the subsidiary is treated as a variable interest entity for which the Bank is deemed to be the primary beneficiary. The venture is operated under a joint venture arrangement. The Bank receives 30% of the net income from the subsidiary once the noncontrolling member has recovered any previous losses incurred by the venture. The Bank does not absorb any losses incurred by the venture. Revenue and expenses related to the subsidiary are included in noninterest income and expenses of the Bank and the noncontrolling portion of the net income or loss of the subsidiary is reflected in the “noncontrolling interest in net (income) loss of the subsidiary” on the Consolidated Statements of Operations. For the first quarter of 2017, the mortgage subsidiary generated a net loss of $(499,000) compared with net loss of $(532,000) for the fourth quarter of 2016 and a net income of $321,000 for the first quarter of 2016.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

This document contains non-GAAP financial measures. The non-GAAP measures in this release below include “adjusted net interest margin” and “efficiency ratio.” We believe these non-GAAP measures provide useful information to investors because these are among the measures used by our management team to evaluate our operating performance and make day-to-day operating decisions. In addition, we believe certain purchase accounting adjustments and non-recurring income relating to the payoff of a purchased credit impaired loan in the second quarter of 2016 do not reflect the operational performance of the business in this period; accordingly, it is useful to consider these line items with and without such adjustments. We believe this presentation also increases comparability of period-to-period results.

Other companies may use similarly titled non-GAAP financial measures that are calculated differently from the way we calculate such measures. Accordingly, our non-GAAP financial measures may not be comparable to similar measures used by other companies. We caution investors not to place undue reliance on such non-GAAP measures, but instead to consider them with the most directly comparable GAAP measure. Non-GAAP financial measures have limitations as analytical tools, and should not be considered in isolation, or as a substitute for our results as reported under generally accepted accounting principles.

Yield Table Assumptions - Average loan balances are inclusive of nonperforming loans. Yields computed on tax-exempt instruments are on a tax equivalent basis. Net interest spread is calculated as the yields realized on interest-bearing assets less the rates paid on interest-bearing liabilities. Net interest margin is the result of net interest income calculated on a tax-equivalent basis divided by average interest earning assets for the period. Changes in net interest income are attributed to either changes in average balances (volume change) or changes in average rates (rate change) for earning assets and sources of funds on which interest is received or paid. Volume change is calculated as change in volume times the previous rate while rate change is change in rate times the previous volume. Changes not due solely to volume or rate changes have been allocated to volume change and rate change in proportion to the relationship of the absolute dollar amounts of the change in each category.
