Cadence Bancorporation Reports Record First Quarter 2018 Results

HOUSTON, TEXAS (April 25, 2018) – “We are very pleased to report to you our first quarter of 2018 financial results,” stated Paul B. Murphy, Jr., Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Cadence Bancorporation. “April 2018 marks the one-year anniversary since we took Cadence Bancorporation public.  Since that time, our loans are up $1.1 billion or 14%, our core deposits have increased $1.5 billion or 21%, our revenues are up $17.2 million or 17.4%, and importantly, our earnings per share has increased $0.11 or 31%.  As a result, our stock has performed well since our IPO.  Today, our business is strong, our bankers are motivated, and we are focused on doing a great job for our clients.  That combination ultimately translates into our continued financial performance and return for our shareholders.”  

 

Cadence Bancorporation (NYSE:CADE) (“Cadence”) today announced net income for the quarter ended March 31, 2018 of $38.8 million, or $0.46 per diluted common share (“per share”), compared to $14.7 million, or $0.17 per share, in the fourth quarter of 2017, and $26.1 million, or $0.35 per share, in the first quarter of 2017.  The fourth quarter of 2017 includes a one-time charge of $19.0 million, or $0.22 per share, recorded in income tax expense (the “one-time tax charge”) related to the enactment of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act in December 2017 requiring a re-measurement of our deferred tax assets arising from a lower corporate tax rate. 
 

Highlights:

·         First quarter of 2018 net income was $38.8 million, representing an increase compared to the fourth quarter of 2017 of $5.1 million, or 15.2%, excluding the one-time tax charge(1), (an increase of $24.1 million, or 164.3%, as reported), and an increase of $12.7 million, or 48.7%, compared to first quarter of 2017.
  

o      On a per-share basis, net income was $0.46 per share for the first quarter of 2018, compared to $0.39 per share excluding the one-time tax charge(1)  for the fourth quarter of 2017, (or $0.17 per share as reported), and $0.35 per share for the first quarter of 2017. 

o       Annualized returns on average assets, common equity and tangible common equity(1) for the first quarter of 2018 were 1.44%, 11.73% and 15.52%, respectively, compared to 1.26%, 9.92% and 13.11%, respectively, excluding the one-time tax charge(1), for the fourth quarter of 2017, (0.55%, 4.32% and 5.71%, respectively, as reported), and 1.10%, 9.71% and 13.96%, respectively, for the first quarter of 2017.   

 

·       Total revenue for the first quarter of 2018 was $116.1 million, up 2.2% from the linked quarter and up 17.4% from the same period in 2017 driven by strong loan growth and increases in net interest margin. 

·       Our fully tax-equivalent net interest margin (“NIM”) for the first quarter of 2018 was 3.64%, an increase from 3.59% for the fourth quarter of 2017 and 3.46% for the first quarter of 2017, reflecting our asset sensitivity.  Our NIM excluding recovery accretion for acquired-impaired loans was 3.62% for the first quarter of 2018, up 14bp from 3.48% in the fourth quarter of 2017 and up 19bp from 3.43% in the first quarter of 2017. 

·       The efficiency ratio(1) for the first quarter of 2018 was 53.35%, an improvement from both linked and prior quarter efficiency ratios of 58.44% and 54.95%, respectively.  The first quarter of 2018 included approximately $3.1 million of non-routine secondary offering and legal costs.

Considered a non-GAAP financial measure.  See Table 7 “Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures” for a reconciliation of our non-GAAP measures to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure. 
   

·        Loans were $8.6 billion as of March 31, 2018, an increase of $393.6 million, or 4.8%, as compared to $8.3 billion at December 31, 2017, and an increase of $1.1 billion, or 14.4%, as compared to $7.6 billion at March 31, 2017.

·        Core deposits (total deposits excluding brokered) were $8.2 billion as of March 31, 2018, up $15.8 million, or 0.2%, from December 31, 2017, and up $1.5 billion, or 21.4%, from March 31, 2017.  Both the increases in loans and deposits were 100% organically derived. 
 

Balance Sheet:

Cadence continued its solid growth during the quarter with total assets reaching $11.0 billion as of March 31, 2018, an increase of $50.5 million, or 0.5%, from December 31, 2017, and an increase of $1.3 billion, or 13.2%, from March 31, 2017.  
 

Loans at March 31, 2018 were $8.6 billion, an increase of $393.6 million, or 4.8%, from December 31, 2017, and an increase of $1.1 billion, or 14.4%, from March 31, 2017.  Average loans for the first quarter of 2018 were $8.4 billion, an increase of $217.7 million, or 2.6%, from fourth quarter of 2017, and an increase of $892.8 million, or 11.8%, from first quarter of 2017.  Increases in loans reflect continued demand primarily in our specialized and general C&I portfolios compared to linked quarter and in our specialized, general C&I and residential portfolios compared to prior year.  
 

Total deposits at March 31, 2018 were $9.0 billion, an increase of $37.5 million, or 0.4%, from December 31, 2017, and an increase of $1.2 billion, or 15.4%, from March 31, 2017.  Average total deposits for the first quarter of 2018 were $9.0 billion, an increase of $376.9 million, or 4.4%, from fourth quarter of 2017, and an increase of $987.3 million, or 12.3%, from first quarter of 2017. 

 

-       Deposit increases reflect growth in core deposits, specifically with success in expanding commercial deposit relationships and treasury management services. 

 

-        Noninterest bearing deposits as a percent of total deposits were 22.6%, compared to 24.9% at December 31, 2017 and 23.9% at March 31, 2017. 

 

-       The year-over-year core deposit growth supported a $246.2 million reduction in brokered deposits since March 31, 2017.  As of March 31, 2018, brokered deposits totaled $0.8 billion, or 9.0% of total deposits, up slightly from 8.8% of total deposits at December 31, 2017 and down from 13.6% of total deposits at March 31, 2017, respectively.  

Shareholders’ equity was $1.4 billion at March 31, 2018, a decrease of $2.0 million from December 31, 2017, and an increase of $251.1 million from March 31, 2017.

 

-        The linked quarter decline in shareholders’ equity was impacted by a decline in Other Comprehensive Income due to unrealized losses related to the impact of rising interest rates on the fair market valuation of our securities portfolio.

 

-        In March 2018, Cadence paid a $0.125 per common share dividend totaling $10.5 million.  

 

-        The year-over-year increase in shareholders’ equity includes $155.6 million in net proceeds from our April 2017 initial public offering that was added to tangible common equity during the second quarter of 2017.  This offering resulted in increasing average diluted shares to 84.7 million for the first quarter of 2018, as compared to 75.7 million and 84.7 million in the first quarter of 2017 and fourth quarter of 2017, respectively. 
 

-        In November 2017 and February 2018, Cadence completed secondary offerings whereby its controlling stockholder, Cadence Bancorp LLC, sold 10,925,000 and 9,200,000 Cadence Bancorporation shares, respectively, reducing its ownership in Cadence to 76.6% and 65.6%, respectively.  All proceeds from these transactions were received by Cadence Bancorp LLC and did not impact Cadence Bancorporation’s equity or outstanding shares.

 

Asset Quality:

 

Credit quality metrics reflected general credit stability in the first quarter of 2018. 
 

-       Annualized net-charge offs as a percent of average loans for the quarter ended March 31, 2018 were $0.4 million, or 0.02%, compared to $4.4 million, or 0.06%, for the full year of 2017. 

 

-       NPAs totaled $72.7 million, or 0.8%, of total loans, OREO and other NPAs as of March 31, 2018, compared to $70.7 million, or 0.9%, as of December 31, 2017, and down from $171.0 million, or 2.3%, as of March 31, 2017.

 

-       Of the $37.3 million in energy nonperforming loans included in total NPAs as of March 31, 2018, 85% were paying in accordance with contractual terms.

 

-       The allowance for credit losses (“ACL”) was $91.5 million, or 1.06% of total loans, as of December 31, 2017, as compared to $87.6 million, or 1.06% of total loans, as of December 31, 2017 and $88.3 million, or 1.17% of total loans, as of March 31, 2017.  The year-over-year decline in the ACL as a percentage of total loans resulted primarily from the reduction in non-performing loans and related valuation reserves (largely from the energy portfolio) and improved environmental factors in the energy sector over the past year. 

 

Total Revenue:
 

Total revenue for the first quarter of 2018 was $116.1 million, up 2.2% from the linked quarter and up 17.4% from the same period in 2017.  The revenue increases were primarily a result of both strong loan growth during the period and meaningful increases in net interest margins.
  

Net interest income for the first quarter of 2018 was $91.1 million, an increase of $3.2 million, or 3.6%, from the fourth quarter of 2017 and an increase of $16.4 million, or 21.9%, from the same period 2017, reflecting strong growth in our earning assets combined with increases in net interest margin. 

 

-       Our fully tax-equivalent net interest margin (“NIM”) for the first quarter of 2018 was 3.64% as compared to 3.59% for the fourth quarter of 2017 and 3.46% for the first quarter of 2017.  The increases in NIM are primarily a result of our asset sensitive balance sheet and earning asset yields increasing more significantly than our funding costs in the recent rising rate environment.  Our NIM excluding recovery accretion for acquired-impaired loans was 3.62%, 3.48% and 3.43% for the first quarter of 2018, fourth quarter of 2017 and first quarter of 2017 respectively.

 

-       Earning asset yields for the first quarter of 2018 were 4.51%, up 10 basis points from 4.41% in the fourth quarter of 2017, and up 38 basis points from 4.13% in the first quarter of 2017, driven by increases in loan yields. 

 

o      Over 72% of our loan portfolio is floating rate and has benefited from the short-term rate increases during the periods.  

o      Yield on loans, excluding acquired-impaired loans, increased meaningfully to 4.81% for the first quarter of 2018, as compared to 4.47% and 4.14% for the fourth quarter of 2017 and first quarter of 2017, respectively.

o      Total accretion for acquired-impaired loans was $5.6 million in the first quarter of 2018, down $2.5 million from the fourth quarter of 2017 and down $1.3 million from the first quarter of 2017.  The declines in accretion were due to recovery timing.  Recovery accretion was $0.4 million, $2.8 million and $0.6 million for the first quarter of 2018, fourth quarter of 2017 and first quarter of 2017, respectively.  

o      Total loan yields increased to 4.94% for the first quarter of 2018 versus 4.72% for the fourth quarter of 2017 and 4.34% for the first quarter of 2017. 

o      The impact of the lower tax rate in the first quarter of 2018 on the tax-equivalent yield served to reduce the first quarter of 2018 NIM by (4) basis points.

 

-       Total cost of funds for the first quarter of 2018 was 94 basis points versus 89 basis points in the linked quarter and 71 basis points in the first quarter of 2017.  

 

o      Total cost of deposits for the first quarter of 2018 was 75 basis points versus 69 basis points in the linked quarter and 49 basis points in the first quarter of 2017. 

 

Noninterest income for the first quarter of 2018 was $25.0 million, a decrease of $0.7 million, or 2.6%, from the fourth quarter of 2017, and an increase of $0.9 million, or 3.6%, from the same period of 2017. 

 

-       Total service fees and revenue for the first quarter of 2018 were $23.9 million, an increase of $1.5 million, or 6.7%, from the fourth quarter of 2017, and an increase of $1.4 million, or 6.3%, from the same period of 2017.  The first quarter of 2018 increases compared to the linked quarter were driven throughout various fee categories due to broad based business growth, notably in trust services, service charges on deposit accounts, credit related fees and insurance revenue.  Mortgage banking revenue declined slightly due to the rate environment and overall seasonality.  Compared to the prior year’s quarter, increases were also broad-based, with notable increases in credit-related fees and investment advisory revenue, and softer mortgage banking revenue.  

 

-       Total other noninterest income for the first quarter of 2018 was $1.1 million, a decrease of $2.2 million from the fourth quarter of 2017, and a decrease of $0.5 million from the same period of 2017.  The decline from linked quarter was largely a result of the $1.6 million gain on sale of a loan in the fourth quarter of 2017.  

 

Noninterest Expenses:

 
Noninterest expense for the first quarter of 2018 was $61.9 million, a decrease of $4.4 million, or 6.7%, from $66.4 million for the fourth quarter of 2017, and an increase of $7.6 million, or 14%, from $54.3 million during the same period in 2017.  The linked quarter included an increase of $2.2 million in salaries and benefits driven by timing of payroll taxes and 401k contributions due to annual incentives paid in the first quarter of 2018 and the beginning of the tax year.  This increase was more than offset by decreases in consulting and professional fees, OREO costs and other expenses as a result of non-routine fourth quarter of 2017 expenses.
 
The increase in expenses from the prior year’s quarter was due to a $3.1 million growth in salaries and benefits driven by business growth and related incentives, and a $4.1 million increase in other expenses due to overall growth and non-routine expenses in the first quarter of 2018 detailed below:

 

-       Consulting and professional fees in the first quarter of 2018 included $0.9 million in expenses specific to the February 2018 secondary offering.
 

-       Legal expense for the first quarter of 2018 included $2.2 million in legal costs associated with litigation related to a pre-acquisition matter of a legacy acquired bank.  This matter was resolved in the first quarter of 2018 and is not expected to result in any future expenses.

 

The efficiency ratio(1) for the first quarter of 2018 was 53.35%, as compared to the first quarter of 2017 and fourth quarter of 2017 ratios of 54.95% and 58.44%, respectively. The improvement in the efficiency ratio reflects ongoing focus on managing expenses and expanding revenue.  First quarter 2018 revenues increased $17.2 million over first quarter 2017, while first quarter 2018 expenses increased $7.6 million over first quarter 2017.

 

Taxes:
 

The effective tax rate for the quarter ended March 31, 2018 was 22.0% as compared to 34.8%(1) excluding the one-time tax charge in the fourth quarter of 2017, (71.6% as reported), and 32.6% in the first quarter of 2017.

About Non-GAAP Financial Measures

 

Certain of the financial measures and ratios we present, including “efficiency ratio,” “adjusted noninterest expenses,” “adjusted operating revenue,” “tangible common equity ratio,” “tangible book value per share” and “return on average tangible common equity” and “pre-tax, pre-provision net earnings,” are supplemental measures that are not required by, or are not presented in accordance with, U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP). We refer to these financial measures and ratios as “non-GAAP financial measures.” We consider the use of select non-GAAP financial measures and ratios to be useful for financial and operational decision making and useful in evaluating period-to-period comparisons. We believe that these non-GAAP financial measures provide meaningful supplemental information regarding our performance by excluding certain expenditures or assets that we believe are not indicative of our primary business operating results or by presenting certain metrics on a fully taxable equivalent basis. We believe that management and investors benefit from referring to these non-GAAP financial measures in assessing our performance and when planning, forecasting, analyzing and comparing past, present and future periods.

These non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered a substitute for financial information presented in accordance with GAAP and you should not rely on non-GAAP financial measures alone as measures of our performance. The non-GAAP financial measures we present may differ from non-GAAP financial measures used by our peers or other companies. We compensate for these limitations by providing the equivalent GAAP measures whenever we present the non-GAAP financial measures and by including a reconciliation of the impact of the components adjusted for in the non-GAAP financial measure so that both measures and the individual components may be considered when analyzing our performance.  A reconciliation of non-GAAP financial measures to the comparable GAAP financial measures is included at the end of the financial statement tables (Table 7).
