LOS ANGELES, April 22, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- RBB Bancorp (NASDAQ:RBB) and its subsidiaries, Royal Business Bank ("the Bank") and RBB Asset Management Company ("RAM"), collectively referred to herein as "the Company", announced financial results for the quarter ended March 31, 2019.

The Company reported net income of $10.4 million, or $0.51 diluted earnings per share, for the three months ended March 31, 2019, compared to net income of $9.5 million, or $0.48 diluted earnings per share, and $8.8 million, or $0.52 diluted earnings per share, for the three months ended December 31, 2018 and March 31, 2018, respectively.

"We are pleased with our operating performance for the first quarter," said Mr. Alan Thian, Chairman, President and CEO. "We delivered another solid quarter of net income, driven by an increase in average loan balances, stable fee income and strong credit quality. We continued to execute on our plan to reduce the size of our loans held for sale, as we sold $129.8 million during the first quarter and plan to sell approximately $150 million per quarter going forward."

"We are making progress with our integration of First American International Corp., introducing many of our business deposit products to their branch network, with commercial lending to follow. We are also on schedule for additional systems conversion, which we anticipate will generate incremental savings. In addition, we have been successful in selling some of First American's FNMA loan portfolio as part of our balance sheet management strategy."

"We see 2019 as a rebalancing year, as we remain focused on reducing the size of our portfolio of loans held for sale, which will likely offset the growth in our loans held for investment. We will continue to invest in our business to diversify our revenue mix and provide additional catalysts for generating increased profitability, all with the view of creating additional long-term value for our shareholders," concluded Mr. Thian.

Key Performance Ratios

Net income of $10.4 million for the first quarter of 2019 produced an annualized return on average assets of 1.44%, an annualized return on average tangible common equity of 13.29%, and an annualized return on average equity of 10.98%.  This compares to an annualized return on average assets of 1.35%, an annualized return on average tangible common equity of 12.29%, and an annualized return on average equity of 10.98% for the fourth quarter of 2018.  The efficiency ratio for the first quarter of 2019 was 50.9%, compared to 49.9% for the prior quarter.

Net Interest Income and Net Interest Margin

Net interest income, before provision for loan losses, was $25.9 million for the first quarter of 2019, compared to $25.6 million for the fourth quarter of 2018.  The $330,000 increase was primarily attributable to a $119.1 million increase in average earning assets, mainly due to a $106.2 million increase in average total loans, partially offset by a $112.7 million increase in interest-bearing liabilities.  Net interest income was slightly impacted by a decrease of 4 basis points in the net interest margin.  Accretion of purchase discounts contributed $1.1 million to net interest income in the first quarter of 2019, compared to $0.9 million in the fourth quarter of 2018. The increase in accretion income was due to loans acquired in the First American merger.

Compared to the first quarter of 2018, net interest income, before provision for loan losses, increased from $16.4 million. The increase was primarily attributable to a $1.2 billion increase in average earning assets, partially offset by a 42 basis point decrease in the net interest margin.

Net interest margin was 3.84% for the first quarter of 2019, a decrease from 3.88% in the fourth quarter of 2018. The decrease was primarily attributable to a 26 basis point increase in the cost of interest bearing liabilities, partially offset by an 18 basis point increase in the yield on average earning assets resulting from higher yields on loans and higher loan discount accretion.  Loan discount accretion contributed 16 basis points to the net interest margin in the first quarter of 2019, compared to 14 basis points in the fourth quarter of 2018.

Noninterest Income

Noninterest income was $4.2 million for the first quarter of 2019, a decrease of $1.3 million from $5.5 million in the fourth quarter of 2018.  In the first quarter, recoveries on loans acquired in business combinations decreased by $1.4 million, service charges, fees and other decreased by $307,000.  These were partially offset by the gain on loan sales increase of $97,000 and net loan servicing fees increased by $154,000.

The Company sold $129.8 million in mortgage loans for a net gain of $1.9 million during the quarter ended March 31, 2019, compared to $123.9 million in mortgage loan sales for a net gain of $1.8 million during the quarter ended December 31, 2018. The Company originated $66.2 million in mortgage loans for sale for the quarter ended March 31, 2019, compared with $74.5 million during the quarter ended December 31, 2018.

The Company sold $3.7 million in SBA loans for a net gain of $125,000 during the first quarter of 2019, compared to $7.3 million in SBA loans sold for a net gain of $312,000 during the fourth quarter of 2018.  SBA loan originations for the first quarter were $6.7 million, compared to $9.6 million for the fourth quarter of 2018.

The company sold $8.8 million in commercial real estate loans for a net gain of $154,000 in the first quarter of 2019.  None were sold in the prior quarter or in the first quarter of 2018.

Compared to the first quarter of 2018, noninterest income increased by $1.7 million. The increase was primarily attributable to a $354,000 increase in service charges, fees and other income, an increase of $383,000 increase in gains on sales of loans and an increase of $871,000 in loan servicing fees. 

Noninterest Expense

Noninterest expense for the first quarter of 2019 was $15.3 million, compared to $15.5 million for the fourth quarter of 2018.  The decrease was primarily attributable to a $1.0 million decrease in merger related expenses and a $230,000 decrease in legal and professional expenses, partially offset by a $440,000 increase in salaries and employee benefits expenses, a $338,000 increase in occupancy and equipment expenses, and a $157,000 increase in data processing expenses.

Compared to the first quarter of 2018, noninterest expense increased from $8.3 million to $15.3 million. The $7.0 million increase was primarily due to an increase in salaries and employee benefits of $4.2 million, occupancy and equipment expenses of $1.5 million, data processing expenses of $536,000, and amortization of intangibles of $307,000. The increase in salary expense is attributable to additional staff for expansion and the First American acquisition. The increase in occupancy expense is mainly due to the First American acquisition, including the new Roosevelt Avenue location in Flushing, NY and also due to our new Irvine location in Orange County, CA.

Income Taxes

The effective tax rate was 27.1%, including the impact of a deduction for stock options exercised in the amount of $133,000. for the three months ended March 31, 2019, 30.6%, including the impact of a deduction for stock options exercised in the amount of $401,000, for the three months ended December 31, 2018, and 15.2% for the three months ended March 31, 2018, which included the impact of a deduction for stock options exercised in the amount of $1.4 million

Loan Portfolio

Loans held for investment, net of deferred fees and discounts, totaled $2.1 billion as of March 31, 2019, a decrease of $21.6 million from December 31, 2018, and an increase of $858.5 million from March 31, 2018.  The decrease in loans held for investment from the end of the prior quarter was primarily due to loan sales, as we reclassified certain loans that were held for investment during the quarter and subsequently sold them for a premium.    

Mortgage loans held for sale were $375.4 million as of March 31, 2018, a decrease of $59.1 million from $434.5 million at December 31, 2018. 

Deposits

Deposits were $2.2 billion at March 31, 2019, an increase of $40.3 million from December 31, 2018, and an increase of $810.8 million from March 31, 2018. The increase in total deposits from the end of the prior quarter was primarily attributable to a $69.0 million increase in brokered time deposits.  We experienced customers moving funds to time deposits from savings, NOW and money market accounts, given the current outlook for stable interest rates. Those non-maturity deposits decreased by $118.1 million in the quarter. As of March 31, 2019, deposits included $182.8 million in brokered CDs.

Noninterest-bearing deposits decreased $19.8 million to $419.0 million as of March 31, 2019. The decrease was driven by a number of factors, including certain import customers investing in inventory ahead of potential additional tariffs on Chinese imports, as well as other customers drawing on their funds to make investments. Compared to March 31, 2018 noninterest-bearing deposits increased $102.9 million from $316.0 million

Asset Quality

Nonperforming assets totaled $4.6 million, or 0.16% of total assets at March 31, 2019, compared to $4.4 million, or 0.15%, of total assets at December 31, 2018.  Nonperforming assets consist of Other Real Estate Owned, loans modified under troubled debt restructurings (TDR), non-accrual loans, and loans past due 90 days or more and still accruing interest. 

Loans held-for-investment 30 to 89 days past due increased to $5.7 million at March 31, 2019, from $4.1 million at December 31, 2018. 

In the first quarter of 2019, net recoveries were $109,000, which was for a commercial and industrial loan. There were no charge-offs in the first quarter.

The Company recorded a provision for loan losses of $550,000 for the first quarter of 2019, which was primarily attributable to the growth in total average loans during the quarter. 

The allowance for loan losses totaled $18.2 million, or 0.86% of total loans held for investment at March 31, 2019, compared with $17.6 million, or 0.82%, of total loans at December 31, 2018.
