1/27, 2:30 PM (Source: GlobeNewswire)

SUFFOLK, Va., Jan. 27, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- TowneBank (the "Company" or "Towne") (Nasdaq: TOWN) today reported financial results for the full year and the fourth quarter ended December 31, 2021. For the year ended December 31, 2021, earnings were $215.38 million, or $2.97 per diluted share, compared to $145.54 million, or $2.01 per diluted share for the year ended December 31, 2020. Earnings in the fourth quarter of 2021 were $40.18 million, or $0.55 per diluted share, compared to fourth quarter 2020 earnings of $50.08 million, or $0.69 per diluted share.

"We were pleased with our performance for 2021, highlighted by our 22nd year of increased earnings. We achieved record financial results with total revenues surpassing $680 million for the year, which illustrates the value of Towne’s diversified business model. Credit quality remained excellent and strong deposit growth across all markets was a bright spot for the year, leading the way for TowneBank to maintain the #1 market share position for our home market in Hampton Roads. These accomplishments were the result of the hard work and dedication from our nearly 2,900 team members who embrace and define our culture of caring each day," said G. Robert Aston, Jr., Executive Chairman.

Annual Highlights for 2021 Compared to 2020:

  • Total revenues were $680.33 million for the year ended December 31, 2021, an increase from the prior year of $16.00 million, or 2.41%. Increases in net interest income of $22.23 million were partially offset by a $6.23 million decline in noninterest income. The decrease in noninterest income was driven by a decline in residential mortgage banking income of $2.86 million and an $8.38 million decline in gain on investment securities. Property management income increased by $15.70 million, year-over-year.   A 2020 nonrecurring gain on the sale of Red Sky Insurance totaling $17.63 million also contributed to the comparative decline.
  • Pre-provision, pre-tax, net revenues (non-GAAP) were $253.41, an increase of $8.80 million, or 3.60%.
  • Loans held for investment declined $0.12 billion, or 1.28% from December 31, 2020. The balances at December 31, 2021 and 2020 included $0.16 billion and $0.86 billion, respectively, of loans originated under the Paycheck Protection Program ("PPP"). Excluding PPP loans, loans held for investment increased $0.58 billion, or 6.56%, compared to prior year.
  • Total deposits were $13.57 billion, an increase of $2.0 billion, or 17.29% compared to prior year.
  • Book value per share was $26.13, an increase of 7.47% over prior year.   Tangible book value (non-GAAP) per share was $19.15, compared to $17.46 in 2020, an increase of 9.65%.
  • Return on average assets was 1.40% in 2021, compared to 1.03% in the prior year. Return on average tangible assets (non-GAAP) increased 33.23% to 1.51% in 2021.

Highlights for Fourth Quarter 2021 Compared to Fourth Quarter 2020:

  • Total revenues were $160.42 million, in fourth quarter 2021, a decrease from the prior year quarter of $11.42 million, or 6.65%.   Increases in insurance and property management income were more than offset by a $16.56 million decrease in residential mortgage banking income as mortgage demand continued to normalize after the interest rate driven surge in 2020.
  • Pre-provision, pre-tax, net revenues (non-GAAP) were $48.48 million, a decrease of $13.62 million, or 21.93%.
  • Loans held for investment increased $0.21 billion, or 2.24%, in fourth quarter 2021. Excluding PPP loans, loans held for investment increased $0.30 billion, or 13.26% on an annualized basis, from the linked quarter.
  • Total deposits were $13.57 billion, an increase of $0.56 billion, or 4.30%, from September 30, 2021, or 17.06% on an annualized basis.
  • Noninterest bearing deposits increased by 26.79%, to $5.55 billion, compared to prior year, representing 40.86% of total deposits. Compared to the linked quarter, noninterest bearing deposits increased 11.16% on an annualized basis.
  • In the quarter ended December 31, 2021, annualized return on average common shareholders' equity was 8.45% and annualized return on average tangible common shareholders' equity was 12.22% (non-GAAP). For the full 12 months, return on average common shareholders' equity was 11.70% and return on average tangible common shareholders' equity was 16.75% (non-GAAP).
  • Net interest margin of 2.70% and taxable equivalent net interest margin of 2.72% (non-GAAP) compared to the prior year quarter of 2.97% and 2.98%, respectively.
  • Effective tax rate of 18.97% compared to 17.21% in fourth quarter 2020 and 22.73% in the linked quarter.

"From a strategic perspective, we were encouraged to see loan growth momentum build in the back half of 2021. We have several new banking locations coming fully online in 2022 and expect to continue expanding our impressive suite of noninterest income sources. We are well-positioned to deploy our excess liquidity and should benefit in a rising rate environment," said J. Morgan Davis, Chief Executive Officer.

Quarterly Net Interest Income Compared to the Fourth Quarter of 2020:

  • Net interest income was $100.79 million compared to $100.61 million for the quarter ended December 31, 2020.
  • Taxable equivalent net interest margin (non-GAAP) was 2.72%, including purchase accounting accretion of 2 basis points and PPP accretion of 7 basis points, compared to 2.98%, including purchase accounting accretion of 5 basis points and PPP accretion of 10 basis points, for fourth quarter 2020.
  • On an average basis, loans held for investment, with a yield of 4.05%, represented 63.26% of earning assets in the fourth quarter of 2021 compared to a yield of 4.28%, which represented 72.32% of earning assets in the fourth quarter of 2020.
  • Interest and fee income on PPP loans was $3.85 million in fourth quarter 2021, compared to $7.77 million in the linked quarter, and $11.29 million in fourth quarter 2020.
  • Total cost of deposits decreased to 0.16% from 0.37% at December 31, 2020.
  • Average interest-earning assets totaled $14.80 billion at December 31, 2021 compared to $13.48 billion at December 31, 2020, an increase of 9.78%.
  • Average interest-bearing liabilities totaled $8.26 billion, an increase of $0.23 billion, or 2.88%, from the prior year.
  • We expect to continue positioning our earning asset portfolio to positively benefit interest margin in anticipation of a rising rate environment.

Quarterly Provision for Credit Losses:

  • The quarterly provision for credit losses for on-balance-sheet loans was a benefit of $1.18 million compared to a provision expense of $1.21 million one year ago and a benefit of $1.60 million in the linked quarter.
  • The fourth quarter 2021 included a release in the allowance for credit losses of $1.12 million that was driven by a combination of net recoveries and improvement in the current economic forecast, offset by core loan growth.
  • Net recoveries were $0.06 million compared to net charge-offs of $0.11 million one year prior. The ratio of net charge-offs (recoveries) to average loans on an annualized basis was 0.00% in fourth quarter 2021 and 2020, and (0.03)% in the linked quarter.
  • The allowance for credit losses on loans represented 1.12% of total loans compared to 1.15% at September 30, 2021 and 1.25% at December 31, 2020. Excluding PPP loans, which are fully government guaranteed, the allowance for credit losses on loans (non-GAAP) was 1.13% at December 31, 2021, 1.18% at September 30, 2021, and 1.37% at December 31, 2020. The allowance for credit losses on loans was 17.76 times nonperforming loans compared to 12.68 times at September 30, 2021 and 10.74 times at December 31, 2020.
  • Expected loss estimates are subject to change based on continuing review of models and assumptions, portfolio performance, changes in forecasted macroeconomic conditions and loan mix, which could result in material changes to the reserve in future periods.

Quarterly Noninterest Income Compared to Fourth Quarter 2020:

  • Total noninterest income was $59.63 million compared to $71.23 million in 2020, a decrease of $11.60 million, or 16.29%. Residential mortgage banking income decreased $16.56 million, while insurance commissions increased $1.62 million, and property management income increased $3.43 million.
  • Residential mortgage banking income was $20.95 million compared to $37.50 million in fourth quarter 2020. Loan volume in the current quarter was $1.15 billion, with purchase activity comprising 79.36%. Loan volume in fourth quarter 2020 was $1.69 billion, with purchase activity of 59.76%. Loan volume in the linked quarter was $1.31 billion with purchase activity of 77.45%.   Mortgage rates have increased compared to prior periods, resulting in a decline in refinance activity.
  • In addition to declines in mortgage volume and margin from prior periods, the income statement impact of derivative instruments in the fourth quarter of 2021 was a net loss of $2.90 million, compared to a net gain of $1.30 million in the fourth quarter of 2020, and a net loss of $0.77 million in the linked quarter.  
  • Total insurance segment revenue increased $2.26 million, or 13.31%, to $19.26 million in the fourth quarter of 2021. This increase is attributable to higher property and casualty commissions and contingency income, compared to the prior year quarter. We acquired an insurance agency in December 2020, which brought in $0.53 million in additional revenue in fourth quarter 2021.
  • Property management fee revenue increased 60.62%, or $3.43 million, as compared to fourth quarter 2020 due to strong fourth quarter 2021 reservation activity. In July 2021, the Company acquired Venture Resorts, a cabin rental company in the Smoky Mountains of Tennessee, which brought in an additional $2.02 million in property management fees in the quarter.

Quarterly Noninterest Expense Compared to Fourth Quarter 2020:

  • Total noninterest expense was $110.47 million compared to $105.93 million, an increase of $4.54 million, or 4.28%. This reflects increases of $3.34 million in salary and benefits expense, $1.16 million in data processing expense, and $1.21 million in advertising and marketing expenses. The Venture Resorts acquisition resulted in an additional $3.72 million of noninterest expenses during the quarter.
  • Increases in salaries and benefits compared to fourth quarter 2020 were driven by second quarter 2021 annual base salary adjustments, business acquisitions, and year-end production-related bonuses.
  • Higher credit card fees on vacation property reservation activities and increased costs associated with our core banking platform drove the increase in data processing expense.
  • Advertising and marketing expenses increased, primarily in our Realty segment, driven by production based advertising programs in our property management companies and a consumer mortgage advertising program in our residential mortgage operations.
  • We expect first quarter 2022 noninterest expenses to be slightly lower than the current quarter and average $107 million to $109 million on a quarterly basis throughout 2022.

Consolidated Balance Sheet Highlights:

  • Total assets were $16.36 billion at December 31, 2021, an increase of 11.86%, compared to $14.63 billion at December 31, 2020. The increase was driven by increased liquidity levels related to strong deposit growth.
  • Loans held for investment decreased $0.12 billion, or 1.28%, compared to year end 2020, but increased $0.21 billion compared to the linked quarter. Excluding PPP loans of $0.16 billion in fourth quarter 2021, $0.86 billion in fourth quarter 2020, and $0.25 billion in the linked quarter, loans held for investment increased $0.58 million, or 6.56%, compared to prior year, and $0.30 million, or 2.24%, compared to September 30, 2021, or 13.26% on an annualized basis.
  • Average loans held for investment, excluding PPP loans, were $9.17 billion in fourth quarter 2021, an increase of $444.58 million, or 5.09%, compared to prior year.
