MB Financial, Inc. Reports Record Earnings for the Second Quarter 2015, Combined with Solid Loan Growth

CHICAGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jul. 16, 2015-- MB Financial, Inc. (NASDAQ: MBFI), the holding company for MB Financial Bank, N.A., today announced 2015 second quarter net income available to common stockholders of $39.0 million, or $0.52 per diluted common share, compared to $32.1 million, or $0.43 per diluted common share, last quarter and $23.1 million, or $0.42 per diluted common share, in the second quarter a year ago.

Highlights Include:

Operating Earnings Up from Prior Quarter and One Year Ago

  • Operating earnings, which we define as earnings excluding non-core items, were $41.8 million for the second quarter of 2015 compared to $39.3 million last quarter (+6.2%) and $23.5 million in the second quarter a year ago (+77.4%) . A table reconciling net income, as reported, to operating earnings is set forth below and in the “Non-GAAP Financial Information” section.
  • Annualized operating return on average assets increased to 1.14% for the second quarter of 2015 compared to 1.11% last quarter and 0.99% for the second quarter a year ago.
  • Our net interest margin on a fully tax equivalent basis, excluding the accretion on loans acquired in the Taylor Capital merger ("the Merger") declined five basis points from the prior quarter and was up four basis points from the second quarter of 2014.
  • Our core non-interest income grew from $81.4 million in the prior quarter to $83.0 million (+7.9% annualized) primarily as a result of higher mortgage banking revenue driven by an increase in servicing income. The increase in mortgage banking revenue was partially offset by lower leasing revenue as leasing revenue in the first quarter was exceptionally strong.
  • Our core non-interest expense was well-controlled compared to the prior quarter, remaining at $131.5 million despite an extra day and annual salary increases effective in the second quarter of 2015.
  • Merger related expenses incurred in the second quarter of 2015 of $1.2 million were primarily related to branch exit charges on facilities we closed in connection with the Merger as well as legal fees.

The following table presents the calculation of operating earnings and operating earnings available to common stockholders:

Loan Growth During the Quarter

  • Loan balances, excluding purchased credit-impaired loans, increased $235.4 million (+2.7%, or +10.9% annualized) during the second quarter of 2015 primarily due to increases in commercial related loans across several business lines.
  Change from 3/31/2015 to 6/30/2015

Commercial related credits:
Commercial loans $ 96,237 3.0 %
Commercial loans collateralized by assignment of lease payments (lease loans) 62,835 3.9
Commercial real estate 14,351 0.6
Construction real estate 5,494   3.0

Total other loans 56,450   5.1
Total loans, excluding purchased credit-impaired 235,367 2.7
Purchased credit-impaired (62,739 ) (27.6 )
Total loans $ 172,628   1.9 %
 

Deposit Balance Changes

  • Non-interest bearing deposits increased $87.5 million (+2.0%, or +8.2% annualized) during the second quarter of 2015 and comprised 40% of total deposits at quarter-end.
  • Low cost deposits decreased $71.7 million (-0.8%, or -3.1% annualized) in the second quarter of 2015 but continued to represent 84% of total deposits at quarter-end.

Credit Quality

  • Provision for credit losses on legacy loans (which excludes loans acquired through the Merger) was negative $600 thousand in the second quarter of 2015 compared to a negative provision of $550 thousand in the first quarter of 2015.
  • Taylor Capital related provision for credit losses was $4.9 million in the second quarter of 2015 compared to $5.5 million in the first quarter of 2015. These credit costs are a result of Taylor Capital loan renewals and needed reserves on Taylor Capital acquired loans in excess of the purchase loan discount. As expected, these credit costs largely offset the accretion on Taylor Capital non-purchased credit-impaired loans of $8.0 million in the second quarter of 2015 and $8.6 million in the first quarter of 2015.
  • We had net loan recoveries during the second quarter of 2015 of $2.6 million compared to net loan charge-offs of $1.8 million in the first quarter of 2015.
  • Non-performing loans increased by $14.8 million and potential problem loans increased by $8.7 million from March 31, 2015. These increases were more than offset by a $62.7 million decline in purchased credit-impaired loans.

Capital Actions

  • We increased the dividend on our common stock from $0.14 to $0.17 in the second quarter of 2015.
  • We also announced in the second quarter of 2015 that our Board of Directors has authorized the repurchase of up to $50 million of our common stock. We repurchased $3.1 million, or approximately 93,700 shares, of our common stock in the second quarter of 2015.

Mortgage Servicing Rights Sale

  • In July 2015, we sold approximately $106 million of mortgage servicing rights at a price (net of transaction costs) that approximated fair value.

Reconciliations of net interest income - fully tax equivalent to net interest income, as reported, net interest margin - fully tax equivalent to net interest margin and net interest margin - fully tax equivalent, excluding acquisition accounting discount accretion on Taylor Capital loans to net interest margin are set forth in the tables in the "Net Interest Margin" section.

Net interest income on a fully tax equivalent basis increased in the second quarter of 2015 compared to the prior quarter primarily due to an increase in interest earning assets (loans and investment securities) partly offset by lower loan yields.

While interest earning assets increased during the second quarter of 2015, our net interest margin on a fully tax equivalent basis, excluding accretion of the acquisition accounting discount recorded on loans acquired in the Merger, decreased five basis points to 3.57% for the second quarter of 2015 compared to 3.62% for the prior quarter. This decrease was primarily due to the decrease in average yields earned on loans.

See the supplemental net interest margin tables for further detail.

Core non-interest expense increased by $36 thousand from the first quarter of 2015 to $131.5 million for the second quarter of 2015.

  • Salaries and employee benefits increased primarily due to higher incentive expense as well as the extra day and annual salary increases effective in the second quarter of 2015.
  • Occupancy and equipment expense decreased due to lower repair and maintenance expense as well as lower rent expense as a result of exiting certain facilities in the first quarter of 2015.
  • Professional and legal expense decreased due to lower legal fees.

Core non-interest expense increased by $112.7 million, or 75.0%, from the six months ended June 30, 2014 to $263.0 million for the six months ended June 30, 2015 primarily due to the Merger. Other explanations for changes are as follows:

  • Other operating expense increased as a result of an increase in filing and other loan expense and higher FDIC assessments due to our larger balance sheet.
  • Computer services and telecommunication expenses increased due to an increase in spending on IT security and our data warehouse.
  • Professional and legal expense increased due to higher consulting expense.

Non-core non-interest expense in the first six months of 2015 was impacted by merger related expense primarily due to branch exit and facilities impairment charges resulting from closing nine banking centers and exiting other office facilities.

Income Tax Expense

Income tax expense was $19.4 million for the second quarter of 2015 compared to $15.7 million for the first quarter of 2015. The increase in income tax expense was primarily due to the $10.6 million increase in income before taxes from $49.8 million in the first quarter of 2015 to $60.4 million in the second quarter of 2015.

Operating Segments

The Company's operations consist of three reportable operating segments: banking, leasing and mortgage banking. Our banking segment generates its revenues primarily from its lending and deposit gathering activities. Our leasing segment generates its revenues through lease originations and related services offered through the Company's leasing subsidiaries: LaSalle Systems Leasing, Inc., Celtic Leasing Corp. and MB Equipment Finance (formerly known as Cole Taylor Equipment Finance). Our mortgage banking segment originates residential mortgage loans for sale to investors through its retail and third party origination channels as well as residential mortgage loans held in our loan portfolio. The mortgage banking segment also services residential mortgage loans owned by investors and the Company.

Net income from our banking segment for the second quarter of 2015 increased compared to the prior quarter. This increase in net income was primarily due to a decrease in provision for credit losses.

Net income from our leasing segment for the second quarter of 2015 decreased compared to the prior quarter. Lease financing revenues decreased due to a decrease in fees and promotional revenue from the sale of third-party equipment maintenance contracts. This decrease in revenues was partially offset by a decrease in expense, primarily salaries and employee benefits, due to lower commissions on lower leasing revenue. Leasing revenue in the first quarter of 2015 was exceptionally strong.

Net income from our mortgage segment for the second quarter of 2015 increased compared to the prior quarter as a result of higher servicing income. This increase in revenues was partially offset by an increase in expense, primarily salaries and employee benefits due to higher incentive compensation.

(1) Includes $24.5 million, $25.5 million, $25.8 million, $22.4 million and $14.5 million of restructured loans on non-accrual status at June 30, 2015, March 31, 2015, December 31, 2014, September 30, 2014 and June 30, 2014, respectively.

(2) We define potential problem loans as loans rated substandard that do not meet the definition of a non-performing loan. Potential problem loans carry a higher probability of default and require additional attention by management.

(3) Accruing restructured loans consist primarily of residential real estate and home equity loans that have been modified and are performing in accordance with those modified terms as of the dates indicated.

Potential problem loans increased in the first quarter of 2015 primarily due to normal rotation in the portfolio.

Total allowance for loan and lease losses $ 120,070   $ 113,412   $ 110,026   $ 102,810   $ 100,910
 

Purchased loans acquired in a business combination are recorded at estimated fair value on their purchase date without a carryover of the related allowance for loan and lease losses. These acquired loans are segregated into three types: pass rated loans with no discount attributable to credit quality, non-impaired loans with a discount attributable at least in part to credit quality and impaired loans with evidence of significant credit deterioration.

  • Pass rated loans (typically performing loans) are accounted for in accordance with ASC 310-20 "Nonrefundable Fees and Other Costs" as these loans do not have evidence of credit deterioration since origination.
  • Non-impaired loans (typically performing substandard loans) are accounted for in accordance with ASC 310-30 if they display at least some level of credit deterioration since origination.
  • Impaired loans (typically substandard loans on non-accrual status) are accounted for in accordance with ASC 310-30 as they display significant credit deterioration since origination.

For pass rated loans (non-purchased credit-impaired loans), the difference between the estimated fair value of the loans (computed on a loan by loan basis) and the principal outstanding is accreted over the remaining life of the loans. We anticipate recording a provision for the acquired portfolio in future quarters related to renewing Taylor Capital loans which will largely offset the accretion from the pass rated loans.

In accordance with ASC 310-30, for both purchased non-impaired loans and purchased credit-impaired loans ("PCI loans"), the difference between contractually required payments at acquisition and the cash flows expected to be collected is referred to as the non-accretable difference. Further, any excess of cash flows expected at acquisition over the estimated fair value is referred to as the accretable yield and is recognized into interest income over the remaining life of the loan when there is a reasonable expectation about the amount and timing of such cash flows.

Changes in the purchase accounting discount for loans acquired in the Merger were as follows for the three months ended June 30, 2015 (in thousands):

  Non-     Accretable  
Accretable Accretable Discount -

Transfer (8,000 ) 8,000      
Balance at end of period $ 23,474   $ 10,901   $ 46,836   $ 81,211  
 

The $8.0 million purchase accounting discount transfer from non-accretable discount on purchased credit-impaired loans to accretable discount was due to the performance of the purchased credit-impaired loans being better than expected. We have had a number of positive purchased credit-impaired loan resolutions since their acquisition.

FORWARD-LOOKING STATEMENTS

When used in this press release and in reports filed with or furnished to the Securities and Exchange Commission, in other press releases or other public stockholder communications, or in oral statements made with the approval of an authorized executive officer, the words or phrases “believe,” “will,” “should,” “will likely result,” “are expected to,” “will continue” “is anticipated,” “estimate,” “project,” “plans,” or similar expressions are intended to identify “forward-looking statements” within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. You are cautioned not to place undue reliance on any forward-looking statements, which speak only as of the date made. These statements may relate to our future financial performance, strategic plans or objectives, revenues or earnings projections, or other financial items. By their nature, these statements are subject to numerous uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ materially from those anticipated in the statements.

Important factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from the results anticipated or projected include, but are not limited to, the following: (1) expected revenues, cost savings, synergies and other benefits from the Merger and our other merger and acquisition activities might not be realized within the anticipated time frames or at all, and costs or difficulties relating to integration matters, including but not limited to customer and employee retention, might be greater than expected; (2) the credit risks of lending activities, including changes in the level and direction of loan delinquencies and write-offs and changes in estimates of the adequacy of the allowance for loan and lease losses, which could necessitate additional provisions for loan losses, resulting both from loans we originate and loans we acquire from other financial institutions; (3) results of examinations by the Office of Comptroller of Currency, the Federal Reserve Board, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau and other regulatory authorities, including the possibility that any such regulatory authority may, among other things, require us to increase our allowance for loan and lease losses or write-down assets; (4) competitive pressures among depository institutions; (5) interest rate movements and their impact on customer behavior, net interest margin and the value of our mortgage servicing rights; (6) the possibility that our mortgage banking business may increase volatility in our revenues and earnings and the possibility that the profitability of our mortgage banking business could be significantly reduced if we are unable to originate and sell mortgage loans at profitable margins or if changes in interest rates negatively impact the value of our mortgage servicing rights; (7) the impact of repricing and competitors’ pricing initiatives on loan and deposit products; (8) fluctuations in real estate values; (9) the ability to adapt successfully to technological changes to meet customers’ needs and developments in the market-place; (10) our ability to realize the residual values of our direct finance, leveraged, and operating leases; (11) our ability to access cost-effective funding; (12) changes in financial markets; (13) changes in economic conditions in general and in the Chicago metropolitan area in particular; (14) the costs, effects and outcomes of litigation; (15) new legislation or regulatory changes, including but not limited to the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act of 2010 (the “Dodd-Frank Act”) and regulations adopted thereunder, changes in capital requirements pursuant to the Dodd-Frank Act, other governmental initiatives affecting the financial services industry and changes in federal and/or state tax laws or interpretations thereof by taxing authorities; (16) changes in accounting principles, policies or guidelines; (17) our future acquisitions of other depository institutions or lines of business; and (18) future goodwill impairment due to changes in our business, changes in market conditions, or other factors.

We do not undertake any obligation to update any forward-looking statement to reflect circumstances or events that occur after the date on which the forward-looking statement is made.

(1) Annualized operating return on average assets is computed by dividing annualized operating earnings by average total assets. Annualized operating return on average common equity is computed by dividing annualized operating earnings by average common equity. Operating earnings is defined as net income as reported less non-core items, net of tax.

(2) Annualized cash return on average tangible equity is computed by dividing net cash flow available to common stockholders (net income available to common stockholders, plus other intangibles amortization expense, net of tax benefit) by average tangible common equity (average common stockholders' equity less average goodwill and average other intangibles, net of tax benefit).

(3) Annualized cash operating return on average tangible common equity is computed by dividing annualized cash operating earnings (operating earnings plus other intangibles amortization expense, net of tax benefit, less dividends on preferred shares) by average tangible common equity. Operating earnings is defined as net income as reported less non-core items, net of tax.

(4) Equals total interest expense divided by the sum of average interest bearing liabilities and noninterest bearing deposits.

(5) Equals total non-interest expense excluding non-core items divided by the sum of net interest income on a fully tax equivalent basis, total non-interest income less non-core items, and tax equivalent adjustment on the increase in cash surrender value of life insurance.

(6) Equals total non-interest expense excluding non-core items less total non-interest income excluding non-core items, and including tax equivalent adjustment on the increase in cash surrender value of life insurance divided by average assets.

(7) Equals total non-interest income excluding non-core items and tax equivalent adjustment on the increase in cash surrender value of life insurance divided by the sum of net interest income on a fully tax equivalent basis, total non-interest income less non-core items, and tax equivalent adjustment on the increase in cash surrender value of life insurance.

(8) Represents net interest income on a fully tax equivalent basis assuming a 35% tax rate, as a percentage of average interest earning assets.

(9) Non-performing loans excludes purchased credit-impaired loans and loans held for sale. Non-performing assets excludes purchased credit-impaired loans, loans held for sale, and other real estate owned related to FDIC transactions.

(10) Equals total ending stockholders’ equity less goodwill and other intangibles, net of tax benefit, divided by total assets less goodwill and other intangibles, net of tax benefit.

(11) Equals total ending common stockholders’ equity less goodwill and other intangibles, net of tax benefit, divided by total assets less goodwill and other intangibles, net of tax benefit.

(12) Equals total ending common stockholders’ equity less goodwill and other intangibles, net of tax benefit, divided by risk-weighted assets. Current quarter risk-weighted assets are estimated.

(13) Current quarter ratios are estimated. 2015 ratios reflect the new capital regulation changes required under the Basel III regulatory capital reform.

(14) Equals total ending common stockholders’ equity divided by common shares outstanding.

(15) Equals total ending common stockholders’ equity less goodwill and other intangibles, net of tax benefit, divided by common shares outstanding.

NON-GAAP FINANCIAL INFORMATION

This press release contains certain financial information determined by methods other than in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (GAAP). These measures include operating earnings; annualized operating return on average assets; core non-interest income; core non-interest income to revenues (with non-core items excluded from both core non-interest income and revenues); core non-interest expense; non-core non-interest income and non-core non-interest expense, net interest income on a fully tax equivalent basis; net interest margin on a fully tax equivalent basis; net interest margin on a fully tax equivalent basis excluding acquisition discount accretion on Taylor Capital loans; efficiency ratio and the ratio of annualized net non-interest expense to average assets with net gains and losses on investment securities, net gains and losses on sale of other assets, gain on extinguishment of debt and increase (decrease) in market value of assets held in trust for deferred compensation excluded from the non-interest income components of these ratios, and contingent consideration expense, Merger related expenses, loss on low to moderate income real estate investment, prepayment fees on interest bearing liabilities, contribution to MB Financial Charitable Foundation and increase (decrease) in market value of assets held in trust for deferred compensation excluded from the non-interest expense components of these ratios, with tax equivalent adjustment for tax-exempt interest income and increase in cash surrender value of life insurance, as applicable; ratios of tangible equity to tangible assets and tangible common equity to tangible assets; tangible book value per common share; annualized operating return on average common equity; annualized cash return on average tangible common equity; and annualized cash operating return on average tangible common equity. Our management uses these non-GAAP measures, together with the related GAAP measures, in its analysis of our performance and in making business decisions. Management also uses these measures for peer comparisons.

Management believes that operating earnings, annualized operating return on average assets, annualized operating return on average common equity, annualized cash return on average tangible common equity, annualized cash operating return on average tangible common equity, net interest margin on a fully tax equivalent basis excluding acquisition discount accretion on Taylor Capital loans, core and non-core non-interest income and non-interest expense are useful in assessing our core operating performance and, in the case of core and non-core non-interest income and non-interest expense, in understanding the primary drivers of our non-interest income and non-interest expense when comparing periods.

The tax equivalent adjustment to net interest income, net interest margin, tax-exempt interest income and increase in cash surrender value of life insurance recognizes the income tax savings when comparing taxable and tax-exempt assets and assumes a 35% tax rate. Management believes that it is a standard practice in the banking industry to present net interest income and net interest margin on a fully tax equivalent basis, and accordingly believes that providing these measures may be useful for peer comparison purposes. For the same reasons, management believes that the tax equivalent adjustments to tax-exempt interest income and increase in cash surrender value of life insurance are useful.

Management also believes that by excluding net gains and losses on investment securities, net gains and losses on sale of other assets, gain on extinguishment of debt and increase (decrease) in market value of assets held in trust for deferred compensation from the non-interest income components, and excluding contingent consideration expense, merger related expenses, loss on low to moderate income real estate investment, prepayment fees on interest bearing liabilities, contribution to MB Financial Charitable Foundation and increase (decrease) in market value of assets held in trust for deferred compensation from the non-interest expense components, of the efficiency ratio and the ratio of annualized net non-interest expense to average assets, these ratios better reflect our core operating performance, as the excluded items do not pertain to our core business operations and their exclusion makes these ratios more meaningful when comparing our operating results from period to period.

The other measures exclude the acquisition-related goodwill and other intangible assets, net of tax benefit, in determining tangible assets, tangible equity, tangible common equity and average tangible common equity and exclude other intangible amortization expense, net of tax benefit, in determining net cash flow available to common stockholders. Management believes the presentation of these other financial measures, excluding the impact of such items, provides useful supplemental information that is helpful in understanding our financial results, as they provide a method to assess management’s success in utilizing our tangible capital, as well as our capital strength. Management also believes that providing measures that exclude balances of acquisition-related goodwill and other intangible assets, which are subjective components of valuation, facilitates the comparison of our performance with the performance of our peers. In addition, management believes that these are standard financial measures used in the banking industry to evaluate performance.

The non-GAAP disclosures contained herein should not be viewed as substitutes for the results determined to be in accordance with GAAP, nor are they necessarily comparable to non-GAAP performance measures that may be presented by other companies.
