LOS ANGELES, Oct. 21, 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 September 30, 2019.

The Company reported net income of $8.0 million, or $0.39 diluted earnings per share, for the three months ended September 30, 2019, compared to net income of $10.1 million, or $0.50 diluted earnings per share, and $8.3 million, or 0.48 diluted earnings per share, for the three months ended June 30, 2019 and September 30, 2018, respectively.

"We are pleased to report financial and operating results for the third quarter that are in line with our expectations," said Mr. Alan Thian, Chairman, President and CEO. "We have successfully completed the balance sheet repositioning that we initiated at the start of the year. We also resumed loan growth, generating strong production in both residential and commercial real estate that outpaced continued elevated levels of loan payoffs and paydowns. Our focus on increasing core deposits helped drive deposit growth and reduce our reliance on wholesale funding. While our net interest margin was negatively impacted by temporary excess liquidity, our ongoing low credit costs and well-managed expenses enabled us to meet our profitability goal for the quarter."

In September, RBB Bancorp agreed to acquire Chicago-based PGB Holdings Inc. and its wholly-owned subsidiary Pacific Global Bank for approximately $32.5 million. The transaction is expected to close in the first quarter of 2020 and result in earnings per share (EPS) accretion in the high single-digits next year.

"We are also very pleased to be acquiring Pacific Global Bank, which enables us to expand the RBB franchise to the attractive Chicago market and serve its large community of Asian-Americans. We are excited to enter this new market and intend to open two new branches in metro Chicago next year. We believe that this transaction will position us well for continued growth and help create greater value for our shareholders in the years ahead," concluded Mr. Thian.

Key Performance Ratios

Net income of $8.0 million for the third quarter of 2019 produced an annualized return on average assets of 1.15%, an annualized return on average tangible common equity of 9.56%, and an annualized return on average equity of 7.99%.  This compares to an annualized return on average assets of 1.43%, an annualized return on average tangible common equity of 12.51%, and an annualized return on average equity of 10.42% for the second quarter of 2019.  The efficiency ratio for the third quarter of 2019 was 52.40%, compared to 50.0% for the prior quarter.

Net Interest Income and Net Interest Margin

Net interest income, before provision for loan losses, was $23.5 million for the third quarter of 2019, compared to $24.3 million for the second quarter of 2019.  The $805,000 decrease was primarily attributable to a $101.7 million decrease in average loans held for sale and an $8.8 million decrease in average total loans held for investment, partially offset by a $104.8 million decrease in average interest-bearing liabilities.  Net interest income was also impacted by a 5 basis point decrease in the net interest margin.  Accretion of purchase discounts from prior acquisitions contributed $624,000 to net interest income in the third quarter of 2019, compared to $753,000 in the second quarter of 2019.

Compared to the third quarter of 2018, net interest income, before provision for loan losses, increased $4.9 million from $18.6 million. The increase was primarily attributable to an $801.2 million increase in average earning assets, partially offset by a 52 basis point decrease in the net interest margin.

Net interest margin was 3.59% for the third quarter of 2019, a decrease from 3.64% in the second quarter of 2019. The decrease was primarily attributable to an 8 basis point decrease in the yield on average earning assets resulting from higher balances and lower yields on cash equivalents and short term securities and lower average loan yields combined with a 1 basis point increase in the cost of interest bearing liabilities.  Loan discount accretion contributed 10 basis points to the net interest margin in the third quarter of 2019, compared to 11 basis points in the second quarter of 2019.

Noninterest Income

Noninterest income was $2.8 million for the third quarter of 2019, a decrease of $2.7 million from $5.5 million in the second quarter of 2019.  The decrease was driven by a decrease in gain on loan sales of $2.3 million, and a decrease from a second quarter 2019 BEA award of $233,000.

The Company sold $5.8 million in FNMA direct mortgage loans for a net gain of $182,000 during the third quarter of 2019, compared to $175.0 million in total mortgage loan sales for a net gain of $2.5 million during the second quarter of 2019.  As previously discussed, mortgage loan sales were essentially curtailed in the third quarter as the system conversion was being implemented at First American International Corp. (FAIC) and the loan pipeline was being replenished.  The Company originated $46.1 million in mortgage loans for sale for the third quarter of 2019, compared with $28.3 million during the prior quarter. 

The Company sold $11.3 million in SBA loans for a net gain of $631,000 during the third quarter of 2019, compared to $10.0 million in SBA loans sold for a net gain of $616,000 during the second quarter of 2019. 

Compared to the third quarter of 2018, noninterest income increased by $694,000 from $2.1 million. The increase was primarily attributable to an increase of $294,000 in service charges and fees, and an increase of $690,000 in net loan servicing fees, mostly attributable to the FAIC merger, partially offset by a $312,000 decrease in gains on loan sales.

Noninterest Expense

Noninterest expense for the third quarter of 2019 was $13.8 million, compared to $14.9 million for the second quarter of 2019.  The $1.1 million decrease was primarily attributable to a $368,000 decrease in salaries and employee benefits expenses, a $240,000 decrease in occupancy and equipment expenses, a $245,000 decrease in data processing expenses, a $221,000 decrease in legal and professional expenses, a $112,000 decrease in insurance and regulatory assessments, and was partially offset by a $139,000 increase in merger expenses.  The decrease in a number of these categories was due to realizing the benefits from the integration of the FAIC acquisition, where we are in the process of optimizing its operational footprint and where we have renegotiated and entered into new contracts with our core system vendor.

Compared to the third quarter of 2018, noninterest expense increased from $8.7 million.  The $5.1 million increase was primarily due to an increase in salaries and employee benefits of $2.9 million, occupancy and equipment expenses of $1.4 million, data processing expenses of $463,000, and core deposit premium amortization of $308,000.  The increase in salary expense and occupancy expense is attributable to additional staff for expansion and the FAIC acquisition, including the new branch in Flushing, NY and our new Irvine location in Orange County, CA.

Income Taxes

The effective tax rate was 31.5%, including the tax impact for stock options exercised in the amount of $38,000 for the third quarter of 2019, 30.3% for the second quarter including the tax impact for stock options exercised in the amount of $52,000, and 19.7% for the third quarter of 2018, which included the tax impact of a deduction for stock options exercised in the amount of $991,000

Loan Portfolio

Loans held for investment, net of deferred fees and discounts, totaled $2.1 billion as of September 30, 2019, an increase of $33.7 million from June 30, 2019, and an increase of $744.9 million from September 30, 2018. The increase from June 30 to September 30 was driven by a $35.2 million increase in single-family residential mortgages, and a $31.5 million increase in commercial real estate loans; this was partially offset by a $17.2 million decrease in construction loans and a combined $15.9 million decrease in C&I and SBA loans.

During the third quarter, single-family residential mortgage production was $92.0 million, payoffs and paydowns were $48.3 million, and loan sales were $5.9 million.  Compared to the second quarter, production was $50.5 million, payoffs and paydowns were $42.7 million, and loan sales were $175.0 million.

Mortgage loans held for sale were $259.3 million as of September 30, 2019, an increase of $9.7 million from $249.6 million at June 30, 2019 and a decrease of $119.6 million from $378.9 million as of September 30, 2018. 

In the third quarter, SBA loan production was $7.5 million, loan payoffs and paydowns were $11.8 million, and total loan sales were $11.3 million.  In the second quarter, SBA loan production was $5.0 million, loan payoffs and paydowns were $8.1 million, and total loan sales were $10.0 million.

Deposits

Deposits were $2.3 billion at September 30, 2019, an increase of $16.6 million from June 30, 2019, and an increase of $687.0 million from September 30, 2018. The increase in total deposits from the end of the prior quarter was primarily attributable to a $10.5 million increase in demand deposits, a $31.8 million increase in money market deposits and a $13.1 million increase in jumbo time deposits, partially offset by a decrease of $6.1 million in retail time deposits and a $32.4 million decrease in brokered time deposits.  Non-maturity deposits increased by $42.0 million in the quarter as our deposit gathering efforts have continued to gain traction.  As of September 30, 2019, deposits included $102.6 million in brokered CDs, as compared to $135.0 million as of June 30, 2019 and $107.9 million as of September 30, 2018. Excluding brokered deposits, total deposits increased by $49.0 million, or 9.3% annualized growth from June 30, 2019.

Asset Quality

Nonperforming assets totaled $10.9 million, or 0.39% of total assets at September 30, 2019, compared to $8.4 million, or 0.30%, of total assets at June 30, 2019. The increase in nonperforming assets was primarily due to the additions of a $2.0 million SBA loan, an $891,000 commercial real estate loan, and a mortgage loan in the amount of $449,000.  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 $4.6 million at September 30, 2019, from $4.2 million at June 30, 2019. 

In the third quarter of 2019, there were no charge-offs and there were $1,000 in recoveries.

The Company recorded a provision for loan losses of $824,000 for the third quarter of 2019, which was primarily attributable to a $400,000 reserve for two non-accrual loans and normal loan growth. 

The allowance for loan losses totaled $19.4 million, or 0.91% of total loans held for investment at September 30, 2019, compared with $18.6 million, or 0.89%, of total loans at June 30, 2019.
