At its regular quarterly meeting today, the Board of Directors of the Company declared a quarterly cash dividend of $0.17 per share of common stock.  The dividend is payable April 1, 2019 to shareholders of record at the close of business on March 15, 2019.

"The financial results for 2018 reflect several meaningful accomplishments achieved by our team through continued hard work and dedication," remarked Dan Rollins, BancorpSouth Chairman and Chief Executive Officer.  "Our earnings for the year are a record for our Company, both in terms of net income of $221.3 million and diluted earnings per share of $2.23, which represents an increase of over 30 percent on a per share basis.  Additionally, our Company exceeded $18 billion in total assets for the first time in our history.  This growth was achieved through continued organic loan growth combined with the closing and integration of the first three bank transactions that our Company has completed since 2007.  We were particularly pleased with our ability to achieve approximately 10 percent organic loan growth in Texas."

"Most recently, we closed the merger with Icon Capital Corporation effective October 1, 2018 and completed the operational systems integration later in the fourth quarter.  This growth, combined with a continued focus on controlling expenses, aided us in improving our operating efficiency ratio – excluding MSR – to 66.6 percent for 2018.   Additionally, we reported an increase in our net interest margin for the year while maintaining stable credit quality.  Finally, in addition to the capital deployed in our growth efforts, we repurchased 6 million shares of our Company's stock during the year."

"As we look specifically at fourth quarter results, the story and accomplishments are a microcosm of our annual results.  First, we are excited about the recent transaction announcements with Merchants Bank and Grand Bank of Texas.  We are optimistic about the value they will add to our bank and we look forward to having them formally join our team in 2019.  As we look at our financial results for the quarter, we are pleased to report another record quarter of net operating income – excluding MSR – which increased to $0.57 per share compared to $0.56 per share for the third quarter of 2018 despite seasonal quarterly headwinds associated with several of our product offerings.  The increase in earnings was achieved largely through improvement in our net interest margin – excluding accretable yield – which increased to 3.71 percent for the fourth quarter compared to 3.62 percent for the third quarter of 2018.   Finally, of the 6 million shares repurchased during 2018, approximately 3 million were repurchased during the fourth quarter."

Provision for Credit Losses and Allowance for Credit Losses

Earnings for the fourth quarter of 2018 reflect a provision for credit losses of $1.0 million, compared with a provision of $0.5 million for the fourth quarter of 2017 and no provision for the third quarter of 2018.  Net charge-offs for the fourth quarter of 2018 were $1.9 million, compared with net charge-offs of $1.8 million for the fourth quarter of 2017 and net recoveries of $1.1 million for the third quarter of 2018.  The allowance for credit losses was $120.1 million, or 0.92 percent of net loans and leases, at December 31, 2018, compared with $118.2 million, or 1.07 percent of net loans and leases, at December 31, 2017 and $121.0 million, or 0.97 percent of net loans and leases, at September 30, 2018.  The allowance for credit losses coverage metrics were impacted by loans acquired in the acquisitions that closed during the first and fourth quarters of 2018.

Total non-performing assets were $106.0 million, or 0.81 percent of net loans and leases, at December 31, 2018 compared with $84.5 million, or 0.76 percent of net loans and leases, at December 31, 2017, and $70.3 million, or 0.56 percent of net loans and leases, at September 30, 2018.  Other real estate owned was $9.3 million at December 31, 2018 compared with $6.0 million at December 31, 2017 and $4.3 million at September 30, 2018.  Increases within each of these balances compared to the third quarter of 2018 were primarily due to loans acquired during the fourth quarter.

Noninterest Revenue

Noninterest revenue was $59.0 million for the fourth quarter of 2018, compared with $63.1 million for the fourth quarter of 2017 and $71.6 million for the third quarter of 2018.  These results include a negative MSR valuation adjustment of $8.1 million for the fourth quarter of 2018, compared with a positive MSR valuation adjustment of $2.4 million for the fourth quarter of 2017 and a positive MSR valuation adjustment of $1.5 million for the third quarter of 2018.  Valuation adjustments in the MSR asset are driven primarily by fluctuations in interest rates period over period.

Noninterest Expense

Noninterest expense for the fourth quarter of 2018 was $152.3 million, compared with $125.9 million for the fourth quarter of 2017 and $142.4 million for the third quarter of 2018.  Salaries and employee benefits expense was $92.0 million for the fourth quarter of 2018 compared with $77.3 million for the fourth quarter of 2017 and $89.6 million for the third quarter of 2018.  Occupancy expense was $12.1 million for the fourth quarter of 2018, compared with $10.1 million for the fourth quarter of 2017 and $11.7 million for the third quarter of 2018.  Other noninterest expense was $42.5 million for the fourth quarter of 2018, compared with $32.2 million for the fourth quarter of 2017 and $34.1 million for the third quarter of 2018.  Additionally, merger-related expense for the fourth quarter of 2018 was $4.5 million, compared with merger-related expense of $0.7 million for the fourth quarter of 2017 and $0.9 million for the third quarter of 2018.

Capital Management

The Company's equity capitalization is comprised entirely of common stock.  The Company's ratio of shareholders' equity to assets was 12.25 percent at December 31, 2018, compared with 11.20 percent at December 31, 2017 and 12.27 percent at September 30, 2018.  The ratio of tangible shareholders' equity to tangible assets was 8.46 percent at December 31, 2018, compared with 9.31 percent at December 31, 2017 and 8.96 percent at September 30, 2018.

Estimated regulatory capital ratios at December 31, 2018 were calculated in accordance with the Basel III capital framework.  The Company is a "well capitalized" bank, as defined by federal regulations, at December 31, 2018, with Tier 1 risk-based capital of 10.85 percent and total risk-based capital of 11.68 percent, compared with required minimum levels of 8 percent and 10 percent, respectively, in order to qualify for "well capitalized" classification. 

Summary

Rollins concluded, "We are very pleased with the progress we made as a company in 2018.  While the benefits associated with the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017 contributed to the improvement in many of our return metrics and also impacted comparability to prior periods, we saw improvement in many other fundamental operating metrics as well.  As expected, we reported a meaningful increase in our net interest margin, which contributed to the growth in our net interest income.  Stable credit quality, including a low level of net charge-offs, resulted in a modest provision for credit losses of $4.5 million for the year.  Finally, our efforts to continue to improve our cost structure are evident in the improvement in our operating efficiency.   As we look to 2019, our focus will remain much the same.  We continue to emphasize the importance of organic growth to our team while also looking for additional strategic opportunities.  We will also work to take the steps necessary to complete our two pending merger transactions while working to realize additional cost savings associated with the merger transactions we closed in 2018.   Most importantly, we will focus on continuing to manage and deploy capital in a manner that maximizes value for our shareholders."
