MB Financial, Inc. Reports Second Quarter Net Income of $23.1 Million

Business Wire

CHICAGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--

MB Financial, Inc. (MBFI), the holding company for MB Financial Bank, N.A., today announced 2014 second quarter net income of $23.1 million compared to $20.0 million last quarter and $25.3 million in the second quarter a year ago.

Key items for the second quarter include:

Net Interest Income Increased Modestly:

  • Net interest income on a fully tax equivalent basis increased $840 thousand from the first quarter of 2014 due to an extra day in the quarter, and increased $675 thousand from the second quarter of 2013 primarily due to higher yields on taxable investment securities partly offset by lower loan yields.
  • Fully taxable equivalent net interest margin was 3.53% for the second quarter of 2014 compared to 3.64% for the prior quarter and 3.61% for the second quarter of 2013. Higher cash balances in the second quarter of 2014 resulting from strong deposit inflows had minimal impact on net interest income, but reduced net interest margin by 11 basis points.

Credit Quality Metrics Improved during the Quarter:

  • We recorded a negative provision for credit losses of $2.0 million in the second quarter compared to a positive provision for credit losses of $1.2 million in the prior quarter as a result of reduced levels of classified and special mention assets.
  • Non-performing loans decreased by $8.0 million from March 31, 2014.
  • Potential problem loan balances improved by $5.3 million from March 31, 2014.
  • Special mention assets decreased by $24.0 million compared to March 31, 2014.

Fee Income from Key Fee Initiatives Increased $2.8 million, 9.6%, from the Prior Quarter and $2.3 million, 7.9%, from the Second Quarter of 2013:

  • Leasing revenues increased due to higher fees from the sale of third-party equipment maintenance contracts compared to the prior quarter, but decreased slightly compared to the second quarter of 2013.
  • Capital markets and international banking service fees increased due to higher M&A advisory and syndication fees.
  • Card fees increased due to prepaid card program growth.
  • Commercial deposit and treasury management fees increased compared to the second quarter of 2013 due to new customer activity, but slightly decreased compared to the prior quarter.

Core Non-interest Expenses Increased $3.9 million, 5.3%, from the Prior Quarter and $4.6 million, 6.4%, from the Second Quarter of 2013:

  • Salaries and employee benefits increased compared to the prior quarter primarily due to annual salary increases, an extra day in the quarter, an increase in leasing commissions as a result of higher leasing revenues and higher long-term incentive expense. Compared to the second quarter of 2013, salaries and employee benefits increased due to annual salary increases and higher long-term incentive expense, health insurance costs and temporary staffing costs.
  • Other operating expense increased from the prior quarter as a result of an increase of $1.4 million in the clawback liability related to our loss share agreements with the FDIC. The increase was due to better than expected performance of the acquired loan portfolios (faster resolution and lower charge-offs). Compared to the second quarter of 2013, other operating expense increased as a result of an increase in filing and other loan expense, as well as higher FDIC assessments due to our larger balance sheet, increased FDIC clawback liability and higher currency delivery expenses related to new treasury management accounts.

Balance Sheet Activity - Loans and Deposits Increased, Low Cost Deposit Flows Strong:

  • Loans, excluding covered loans, increased approximately $27 million (+0.5%) from March 31, 2014 and approximately $62 million (+1.2%) from June 30, 2013.
  • Low cost deposit flows were strong, increasing approximately $335 million (+5.5%) from March 31, 2014 and approximately $615 million (+10.6%) from June 30, 2013.
  • Noninterest bearing deposits as a percent of total deposits were 34% at June 30, 2014.
  • We continue to maintain robust levels of capital and liquidity and are positioned well to complete our pending merger with Taylor Capital Group, Inc. Cash and interest bearing deposits at our holding company totaled approximately $154 million as of June 30, 2014.

RESULTS OF OPERATIONS

Second Quarter Results

Net Interest Income

Net interest income on a fully tax equivalent basis increased $840 thousand from the first quarter of 2014 primarily due to an extra day in the quarter. Our net interest margin on a fully tax equivalent basis for the second quarter of 2014 decreased 11 basis points compared to the first quarter of 2014 primarily due to higher cash balances held during the second quarter of 2014 as a result of the strong deposit inflows. Higher deposits and cash balances had minimal impact on net interest income.

Net interest income on a fully tax equivalent basis increased $675 thousand from the second quarter of 2013 primarily due to higher yields on taxable investment securities partly offset by lower loan yields. Our net interest margin on a fully tax equivalent basis for the second quarter of 2014 decreased eight basis points compared to the second quarter of 2013 primarily due to higher cash balances.

See the supplemental net interest margin tables for further detail.

Core non-interest expense increased by $3.9 million, or 5.3%, from the first quarter of 2014 to the second quarter of 2014.

  • Salaries and employee benefits increased primarily due to annual salary increases, an extra day in the quarter, an increase in leasing commissions as a result of higher leasing revenues and higher long-term incentive expense.
  • Other operating expense increased primarily as a result of an increase of $1.4 million in the clawback liability related to our loss share agreements with the FDIC.

Core non-interest expense increased by $7.0 million, or 4.9%, from the first six months of 2013 to the first six months of 2014.

  • Salaries and employee benefits increased due to annual salary increases, long-term incentive expense, health insurance and temporary staffing needs.
  • Computer services and telecommunication expenses increased due primarily to an increase in spending on IT security, data warehouse, investments in our key fee initiatives, as well as higher transaction volumes in leasing, treasury management and card areas. The increase was also due to increased telecommunication expense related to the transitioning to a new provider.
  • Other operating expense increased primarily as a result of an increase in filing and other loan expense as well as higher FDIC assessments due to our larger balance sheet, higher ATM and debit card processing costs and higher currency delivery expenses related to new treasury management accounts.

Non-core non-interest expense decreased from the preceding quarter. Last quarter's results included a write-off of an investment in funds that invested in low to moderate income real estate projects. This investment was made in 2006 as a community development initiative. The extended slow real estate recovery in some low income areas of Chicago negatively impacted this investment.

CAPITAL

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.

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 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, 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, and increase in market value of assets held in trust for deferred compensation excluded from the non-interest income components of these ratios, and net gains and losses recognized on other real estate owned, merger-related expenses, loss on low to moderate income real estate investment and increase 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, tangible common equity to risk-weighted assets and Tier 1 common capital to risk-weighted assets; tangible book value per common share; and annualized cash 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 core and non-core non-interest income and non-interest expense are useful in assessing our core operating performance and 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, and increase in market value of assets held in trust for deferred compensation from the non-interest income components, and excluding net gains and losses on other real estate owned, merger-related expenses, loss on low to moderate income real estate investment and increase 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.

In addition, management believes that presenting the ratio of Tier 1 common equity to risk-weighted assets is useful for assessing our capital strength and for peer comparison purposes. 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.
