BY GlobeNewswire | MUNICIPAL | 04/28/22 05:45 PM EDT

SAN JOSE, Calif., April 28, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Heritage Commerce Corp (HTBK) , the holding company (the ?Company?) for Heritage Bank of Commerce (the ?Bank?), today announced first quarter 2022 net income of $12.9 million, or $0.21 per average diluted common share, compared to $11.2 million, or $0.19 per average diluted common share, for the first quarter of 2021, and $14.0 million, or $0.23 per average diluted common share, for the fourth quarter of 2021. All results are unaudited.

?We delivered solid earnings for the first quarter of 2022, fueled by year-over-year growth in net interest income and noninterest income resulting from healthy loan and deposit growth and the benefit of excellent credit quality,? said Walter Kaczmarek, President and Chief Executive Officer.

?Our credit quality continues to be particularly strong with nonperforming assets declining 32% to $3.8 million from $5.6 million a year ago and classified assets declining year-over-year and on a linked quarter basis. We had net loan recoveries of $65,000 on previously charged-off loans, compared to net recoveries of $1.4 million for the first quarter of 2021, and net recoveries of $225,000 in the preceding quarter,? continued Mr. Kaczmarek. With a negative provision for credit losses on loans of $567,000 for the first quarter of 2022, the allowance for credit losses on loans to total loans was 1.41% at March 31, 2022, compared to 1.64% at March 31, 2021, and 1.40% at December 31, 2021.

?As we move on from pandemic-related activities, we continue to focus our efforts on strategic growth in the San Francisco Bay Area,? said Mr. Kaczmarek. ?Our capital levels and excess liquidity positions all remain strong, and with a solid earnings performance, a large core deposit base and excellent credit quality, we believe we have a solid foundation upon which to continue to grow our franchise.?

Operating Results, Balance Sheet Review, Capital Management, and Credit Quality

(as of, or for the periods ended March 31, 2022, compared to March 31, 2021, and December 31, 2021, except as noted):

Operating Results:

  • Diluted earnings per share were $0.21 for the first quarter of 2022, compared to $0.19 for the first quarter of 2021, and $0.23 for the fourth quarter of 2021.

  • The following table indicates the ratios for the return on average tangible assets and the return on average tangible equity for the periods indicated:

Return on average tangible assets?0.99%?1.00%?0.99%
Return on average tangible equity?12.47%?13.50%?11.50%
  • Net interest income, before provision for credit losses on loans, increased 9% to $38.2 million for the first quarter of 2022, compared to $35.0 million for the first quarter of 2021, primarily due to higher average balances of loans and investment securities, higher average yields on investment securities and overnight funds, and a lower cost of funds, partially offset by lower interest and fees on Small Business Administration (?SBA?) Paycheck Protection Program (?PPP?) loans, and a decrease in the accretion of the loan purchase discount into interest income from acquired loans. Net interest income remained relatively flat compared to $38.1 million for the fourth quarter of 2021, as higher average balances of loans and investment securities, higher average yields on investment securities, and a lower cost of funds, were offset by lower interest and fees on PPP loans and two fewer days in the first quarter of 2022.

    • The fully tax equivalent (?FTE?) net interest margin increased 21 basis points to 3.05% for the first quarter of 2022 from 2.84% for the fourth quarter of 2021, primarily due to a shift in the mix of earning assets as the Company invested its excess liquidity into higher yielding loans and investment securities, higher average yields on overnight funds, and a slightly lower cost of funds, partially offset by lower interest and fees on PPP loans, lower average balances of factored receivables, and a decrease in the accretion of the loan purchase discount into interest income from acquired loans.

    • The FTE net interest margin contracted 17 basis points to 3.05% for the first quarter of 2022, from 3.22% for the first quarter of 2021, primarily due to a decline in the average yield on loans, lower interest and fees on PPP loans, and a decrease in the accretion of the loan purchase discount into interest income from acquired loans, partially offset by increases in the average yields on investment securities and overnight funds, and a decline in the cost of funds.

  • The following table sets forth the estimated changes in the Company?s annual net interest income that would result from the designated instantaneous parallel shift in interest rates noted, as of March 31, 2022. Computations of prospective effects of hypothetical interest rate changes are based on numerous assumptions including relative levels of market interest rates, loan prepayments and deposit decay, and should not be relied upon as indicative of actual results. Actual rates paid on deposits may differ from the hypothetical interest rates modeled due to competitive or market factors, which could reduce any actual impact on net interest income.

    • The average yield on the total loan portfolio decreased to 4.70% for the first quarter of 2022, compared to 5.24% for the first quarter of 2021, primarily due to lower fees on PPP loans, higher average balances of lower yielding purchased residential mortgages, declines in the average yields of the core bank and asset-based lending and Bay View Funding factored receivables, and a decrease in the accretion of the loan purchase discount into interest income from acquired loans.

???The average yield on the total loan portfolio decreased to 4.70% for the first quarter of 2022, compared to 4.93% for the fourth quarter of 2021, primarily due to lower fees on PPP loans, lower average balances and average yields on factored receivables, higher average balances of lower yielding purchased residential mortgage loans, and a decrease in the accretion of the loan purchase discount into interest income from acquired loans. The loss of income from the lower average yield on the loan portfolio was offset by the purchase of residential mortgage loans late in the fourth quarter of 2021 and organic loan growth resulting in a higher average balance of loans for the first quarter of 2022.

??In aggregate, the original total net purchase discount on loans from the Focus Business Bank, Tri-Valley Bank, United American Bank, and Presidio Bank loan portfolios was $25.2 million. In aggregate, the remaining net purchase discount on total loans acquired was $6.6 million at March 31, 2022.
  • The average cost of total deposits was 0.10% for both the first quarter of 2022 and the fourth quarter of 2021, compared to 0.12% for the first quarter of 2021.

  • During the first quarter of 2022, there was a negative provision for credit losses on loans of $567,000, compared to a $1.5 million negative provision for credit losses on loans for the first quarter of 2021, and a $615,000 negative provision for credit losses on loans for the fourth quarter of 2021.

  • Total noninterest income increased to $2.5 million for the first quarter of 2022, compared to $2.3 million for the first quarter of 2021, primarily due to a realized gain on warrants of $637,000, partially offset by a lower gain on the sale of SBA loans during the first quarter of 2022.

    • Total noninterest income decreased from $2.8 million for the fourth quarter of 2021, primarily due to a lower gain on sale of SBA loans during the first quarter of 2022. The first quarter of 2022 included a $637,000 gain on warrants, while the fourth quarter of 2021 included $618,000 of termination fees at Bay View Funding, a subsidiary of the Bank.

  • Total noninterest expense for the first quarter of 2022 was relatively flat at $23.3 million, compared to $23.2 million for the first quarter of 2021, as higher insurance expense and Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (?FDIC?) assessments were offset by lower professional fees during the first quarter of 2022. Noninterest expense for the first quarter of 2022 increased from $22.2 million for the fourth quarter of 2021, primarily due to higher salaries and employee benefits during the first quarter of 2022, consistent with the cyclical nature of these expenses.

    • Full time equivalent employees were 325 at both March 31, 2022 and March 31, 2021, and 326 at December 31, 2021.

  • The efficiency ratio was 57.16% for the first quarter of 2022, compared to 62.38% for the first quarter of 2021, and 54.32% for the fourth quarter of 2021.

  • Income tax expense was $5.1 million for the first quarter of 2022, compared to $4.3 million for the first quarter of 2021, and $5.3 million for the fourth quarter of 2021. The effective tax rate for the first quarter of 2022 was 28.5%, compared to 27.8% for the first quarter of 2021, and 27.7% for the fourth quarter of 2021.

    • The difference in the effective tax rate for the periods reported compared to the combined Federal and state statutory tax rate of 29.6% was primarily the result of the Company?s investment in life insurance policies whose earnings are not subject to taxes, tax credits related to investments in low-income housing limited partnerships (net of low-income housing investment losses), and tax-exempt interest income earned on municipal bonds.

Balance Sheet Review, Capital Management and Credit Quality:

  • Total assets increased 9% to $5.427 billion at March 31, 2022, compared to $5.001 billion at March 31, 2021, and decreased (1)% from $5.499 billion at December 31, 2021.

  • Securities available-for-sale, at fair value, totaled $111.2 million at March 31, 2022, compared to $196.7 million at March 31, 2021, and $102.3 million at December 31, 2021. At March 31, 2022, the Company?s securities available-for-sale portfolio was comprised of $89.6 million of agency mortgage-backed securities (all issued by U.S. Government sponsored entities) and $21.6 million of U.S. Treasury securities. The pre-tax unrealized loss on securities available-for-sale at March 31, 2022 was ($1.5) million, compared to a pre-tax unrealized gain on securities available-for-sale of $4.9 million at March 31, 2021, and a pre-tax unrealized gain on securities available-for-sale of $2.9 million at December 31, 2021. All other factors remaining the same, when market interest rates are increasing, the Company will experience a higher unrealized loss (or a lower unrealized gain) on the securities portfolio. During the first quarter of 2022, the Company purchased $21.6 million of U.S. Treasury securities (available-for-sale), with a book yield of 2.22% and an average life of 2.51 years.
  • At March 31, 2022, securities held-to-maturity, at amortized cost, totaled $736.8 million, compared to $306.5 million at March 31, 2021, and $658.4 million at December 31, 2021. At March 31, 2022, the Company?s securities held-to-maturity portfolio was comprised of $696.1 million of agency mortgage-backed securities, and $40.7 million of tax-exempt municipal bonds. During the first quarter of 2022, the Company purchased $109.6 million of agency mortgage-backed securities (held-to-maturity), with a book yield of 2.12% and an average life of 6.52 years.

The decrease in loans at March 31, 2022 from December 31, 2021, was primarily due to forgiveness of PPP loans and paydowns in the residential loan portfolio. Total loans at March 31, 2022 included $37.4 million of PPP loans, compared to $349.7 million at March 31, 2021 and $88.7 million at December 31, 2021.

  • At March 31, 2022, 39% of the CRE loan portfolio was secured by owner-occupied real estate, compared to 45% at March 31, 2021, and 40% at December 31, 2021.
  • At both March 31, 2022 and December 31, 2021, approximately 38% of the Company?s loan portfolio consisted of floating interest rate loans, compared to 40% at March 31, 2021.
  • In response to economic stimulus laws passed by Congress in 2020 and 2021, the Bank funded two rounds of PPP loans totaling $530.8 million. At March 31, 2022, after accounting for loan payoffs and SBA loan forgiveness, ?Round 1? PPP loans were $1.2 million and ?Round 2? PPP loans were $36.2 million. In total, the Bank had $37.4 million in outstanding PPP loan balances at March 31, 2022.
