BayFirst Financial Corp. Reports First Quarter 2022 Results

BayFirst Financial Corp.
BayFirst Financial Corp.

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla., April 28, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- BayFirst Financial Corp. (f/k/a First Home Bancorp, Inc.) (NASDAQ: BAFN) (“BayFirst” or the “Company”), parent company of First Home Bank (d/b/a BayFirst Bank) (the “Bank”) reported earnings for the first quarter of 2022 of $13 thousand, or $(0.05) per diluted common share compared to $2.81 million, or $0.61 per diluted common share in the fourth quarter of 2021, and $7.51 million, or $1.82 per diluted common share, in the first quarter of 2021. Financial results for the first quarter of 2022 were impacted by disruptions in the residential secondary market and a reduction in mortgage loan volume, as well as a slower than anticipated pace of the Company’s return to traditional SBA 7(a) lending.

The decrease in earnings during the first quarter of 2022, compared to the fourth quarter of 2021, included a $5.41 million decrease in residential loan fee income, partially offset by a $2.58 million decrease in noninterest expense. Compared to the year ago quarter, the decrease in net income for the first quarter of 2022 included a $5.71 million decrease in PPP origination fee income and a decrease of $18.84 million of residential loan fee income. These line items were partially offset by a negative provision for loan losses of $2.40 million during the first quarter of 2022, and a decrease in noninterest expense of $6.07 million, compared to the first quarter a year ago. Tangible book value at March 31, 2022 decreased 2.42% to $21.22 per common share from, $21.75 at December 31, 2021, primarily impacted by nearly breakeven earnings and a reduction in equity as accumulated other comprehensive loss increased in the rising rate environment. Over the course of the past year, tangible book value increased 18.39% to $21.22 per common share, from $17.93 at March 31, 2021. All per share data has been adjusted to reflect the 3-for-2 common stock split effective May 10, 2021.

“Although first quarter earnings were not in line with our expectations, we are encouraged by the continuing strength in asset quality, strong conventional loan growth, significant increase in SBA loan pipeline, and reduction in expenses," stated Anthony N. Leo, Chief Executive Officer. “As our business model adjusted over the past three quarters away from PPP and from the boom in mortgage demand of 2020 and early 2021, we began taking steps to right size our residential lending team and overall expense structure. At the same time, we continued to invest in our future by recruiting SBA and residential production teams while continuing to advance our digital transformation to position ourselves for future profitability and leverage our existing infrastructure.”

Mr. Leo added, “The transition back to SBA 7(a) lending and reduced reliance on fintech partners for SBA loan generation has not impacted revenue as quickly as anticipated. However, with the investments made to establish a nationwide SBA production team and increasing demand in the Tampa Bay area, the SBA loan pipeline has grown to $155 million at March 31, 2022, from $85 million at December 31, 2021. In addition, in the first quarter of 2022, we took various actions which will improve net interest income for the remainder of the year, and tactically reduced our workforce to reflect the shift in our business model. Our efforts for the remainder of the year will focus on our strategic growth plan and improving profitability. As a rapidly growing financial institution, we are driven by our commitment to take advantage of strategic opportunities and establish our reputation as one of the preeminent community banks in the Tampa Bay area.”

Recent Significant Initiatives

  • Reduced headcount in the first quarter of 2022 by 65 with 62 of those from the Residential Mortgage Division. With a decline in production volume in the Residential Mortgage Division, the Company reduced its workforce in the first quarter of 2022 to adjust to the expectations for volume moving forward. However, the impact of staffing alignment will not be realized until the second quarter of 2022 and beyond.

  • Bolstered future SBA loan production with the establishment of a nationwide SBA lending team in the first quarter 2022, with 6 new SBA lenders added to the team, primarily through a lift out from a competing institution. While the investment in this team in the first quarter 2022 was approximately $665 thousand, loan production and related revenue will not be realized from these additions until the second quarter.

  • Continued to make significant investments in our technology platform designed to enhance the customer experience, bring new customer opportunities to the organization, and create operational efficiencies which allow us to scale without significantly increasing personnel. The value created through these investments has not yet been fully realized, thus getting the full benefit out of our investments will continue to be a focus throughout the remainder of the year.

  • Added two large residential loan production teams in mid-April which added five Loan Production Offices to our Residential Mortgage Division and is expected to increase residential loan production volume once the teams are fully integrated. These new teams include the LoanBud platform, a lending division designed to integrate residential and SBA lending serving self-employed borrowers across the nation.

  • Issued the Company’s Environmental, Social and Governance (“ESG”) Policy statement and began work on its first ESG Report, confirming the Company’s commitment to its corporate responsibility.

First Quarter 2022 Performance Review

  • Residential mortgage production was impacted by a natural seasonal slowdown and rising interest rates which significantly reduced mortgage refinances. As a result, the Residential Mortgage Division originated $335.56 million in loans during the first quarter of 2022, a 29.7% reduction compared to $477.48 million originated during the fourth quarter of 2021, and a 53.1% reduction compared to the $715.85 million of loans produced during the first quarter of 2021.

  • The war in Ukraine significantly impacted secondary mortgage markets and related secondary market income for the quarter, resulting in secondary market activities to be in a loss position for the month of February and rebounding to a positive position in March. We expect continued headwinds and volatility in the secondary mortgage markets in the foreseeable future

  • The Company’s SBA loan origination platform, CreditBench, continues to ramp up its SBA 7(a) loan production after nearly two years of focus on PPP lending and forgiveness processing; however, the transition back to full production levels has taken longer than expected. In addition, the Company has repositioned its loan generation from primarily relying on fintech marketplace lender partners to organic sources. CreditBench originated $47.33 million in new SBA loans during the first quarter of 2022, a 20.2% reduction compared to $59.28 million originated in the fourth quarter of 2021, but a 205.0% increase over the $15.52 million of loans produced during the first quarter of 2021.

  • Loans held for investment, excluding PPP loans, increased by $12.91 million or 2.56% to $517.43 million during the first quarter of 2022 and $96.18 million, or 22.83% over the past year. Production added during the quarter was partially offset by $70.47 million in sales of the guaranteed balances of SBA loans and $4.35 million of unguaranteed balances of SBA loans.

  • Deposits increased by $48.44 million, or 6.71% during the first quarter of 2022 and by $162.87 million, or 26.82% over the past year to $770.13 million at March 31, 2022, with the majority of the increase coming from increases in transaction accounts and savings deposits, partially offset by declines in time deposit balances.

  • Tangible book value per common share at quarter-end was $21.22, a 2.42% decrease from $21.75 at December 31, 2021, but a 18.39% increase from the tangible book value per common share at March 31, 2021.

  • Net interest margin expanded 18 bps quarter-over-quarter to 3.25% in the first quarter of 2022, from 3.07% in the fourth quarter of 2021.

Results of Operations

Net Income

Net income was $13 thousand for the first quarter of 2022 compared to $2.81 million in the fourth quarter of 2021, and $7.51 million in the first quarter of 2021. The decrease in net income for the first quarter of 2022 from the preceding quarter was primarily due to lower residential loan fee income, partially offset by a $2.58 million reduction, or 8.53%, in noninterest expense. The decrease in net income from the first quarter of 2021 was the result of lower PPP income and residential loan fee income, partially offset by higher income from the sale of SBA loans, and lower noninterest expense.

Net Interest Income and Net Interest Margin

Net interest income was $6.41 million in the first quarter of 2022, a decrease of $287 thousand or 4.29% from $6.69 million in the fourth quarter of 2021, and a decrease of $6.22 million or 49.28% from $12.63 million in the first quarter of 2021. The decrease during the first quarter of 2022 as compared to the prior quarter and the year ago quarter was mainly due to the decrease in net PPP loan interest and origination fee income.

Net interest margin improved to 3.25% for the first quarter of 2022, an expansion of 18 bps, compared to 3.07% for the fourth quarter of 2021 and an expansion of 4 bps over the 3.21% for the first quarter of 2021. With the recent rate increase enacted by the Federal Reserve towards the end of the quarter, the Company anticipates further improvement in its net interest margin in future periods as the majority of its SBA loan portfolio rates are tied to prime resetting quarterly at the beginning of each quarter.

Noninterest Income

Noninterest income was $18.87 million for the first quarter of 2022, a decrease of $5.35 million or 22.08% from $24.21 million in the fourth quarter of 2021, and a decrease of $14.29 million or 43.10% from $33.16 million in the first quarter of 2021. The decrease in the first quarter of 2022, as compared to the prior quarter was primarily the result of lower residential loan fee income. The decrease from a year ago quarter was primarily the result of a decrease in residential loan fee income partially offset by an increase in gains on SBA loan sales and the resulting gain in SBA loan servicing.

Noninterest Expense

Noninterest expense was $27.65 million in the first quarter of 2022, which was a $2.58 million or 8.53% decrease from $30.22 million in the fourth quarter of 2021 and a $6.07 million or 18.01% decrease compared to $33.72 million in the first quarter of 2021. The decrease from the prior quarter was primarily the result of lower residential mortgage commissions partially offset by higher salaries and benefits. The decrease from a year ago quarter was primarily due to lower residential mortgage commissions. The impact to expense from the reduction of the workforce in the first quarter 2022 will not provide a meaningful reduction of noninterest expenses until the second quarter of 2022 and beyond.

Balance Sheet

Assets

Total assets decreased by $28.55 million or 3.11% during the first quarter of 2022 to $888.54 million, mainly due to the SBA’s forgiveness of PPP loans, sale of SBA guaranteed loans, and lower residential loans held for sale, partially offset by new loan production and an increase in cash and cash equivalents.

Loans

Loans held for investment, excluding PPP loans, increased by $12.91 million during the first quarter of 2022 and by $96.18 million or 22.83%, over the past year to $517.43 million due to increases in both community bank loans and SBA loans, partially offset by SBA loan sales. PPP loans, net of deferred origination fees, decreased by $35.06 million in the first quarter of 2022 to $44.36 million, due primarily to PPP forgiveness payments.

Deposits

Deposits increased by $48.44 million or 6.71% during the first quarter of 2022 and $162.87 million or 26.82% compared to March 31, 2021, ending the first quarter of 2022 at $770.13 million, with the majority of the quarterly and year over year increase coming from savings and money market accounts and transaction accounts, partially offset by declines in time deposit balances.

Asset Quality

Asset quality remained stable in the first quarter of 2022 reflecting improving economic conditions in our primary markets. As the financial impact of the COVID-19 pandemic became more predictable throughout 2021, the Company began adjusting its allowance for loan losses from the historic high levels reached in 2020 at the onset of the pandemic. The Company continued this trend in the first quarter of 2022 which resulted in a negative provision for the first quarter of $2.40 million. This compared to a $2.50 million negative provision for the fourth quarter of 2021, and a $2.00 million provision for loan losses during the first quarter of 2021.

The ratio of the allowance for loan losses to total loans, excluding government guaranteed loans, residential loans held for sale, and loans carried at fair value, was 3.13% at March 31, 2022, 4.16% as of December 31, 2021, and 7.62% as of March 31, 2021.

Over the past five years, the Company’s loan losses have been incurred primarily in its SBA unguaranteed loan portfolio, particularly loans originated under the SBA 7(a) Small Loan Program. The Small Loan Program represents loans of $350,000 or less and carry an SBA guaranty of 75% to 85% of the loan, depending on the original principal balance. The default rate on loans originated in the SBA 7(a) Small Loan Program has been higher than the Bank’s other loans.

Net charge-offs for the first quarter of 2022 were $882 thousand, a $218 thousand increase from $664 thousand for the fourth quarter of 2021 and a $263 thousand decrease compared to $1.15 million in the first quarter of 2021. Annualized net charge-offs as a percentage of average loans, excluding PPP loans, were 0.68% for the first quarter of 2022, up from 0.51% in the fourth quarter of 2021 and 1.08% in the first quarter of 2021. Nonperforming assets, excluding government guaranteed loans, to total assets was 0.30% as of March 31, 2022, compared to 0.43% as of December 31, 2021, and 0.19% as of March 31, 2021.

In addition to the above metrics, past due PPP loans increased during the first quarter of 2022 as certain PPP loan customers did not apply for forgiveness nor make required payments. As such, as of March 31, 2022, the Company reported $16.36 million of PPP loans past due greater than 30 days past due and accruing, representing approximately 1.36% of PPP loans originated. Although customers may default on their PPP loans, PPP loans are 100% guaranteed by the SBA and the Company expects to receive all principal and accrued interest related to these loans upon payment of the loan by the SBA. Under SBA program rules, the Company is required to wait until a PPP loan is 60 days past due before submitting the loan to the SBA for purposes of honoring the SBA guarantee. Based on the timing of the PPP loan program and the requirements of the SBA liquidation process, the Company expects past due PPP loans to skew past due ratios over at least the next two quarters.

Capital

The Bank’s Tier 1 leverage ratio was 11.75% as of March 31, 2022, a decrease from 12.22% as of December 31, 2021, and an increase from 10.84% at March 31, 2021. The CET 1 and Tier 1 capital ratio to risk-weighted assets were 18.19% as of March 31, 2022 a decrease from 19.98% as of December 31, 2021, and an increase from 16.97% as of March 31, 2021. The total capital to risk-weighted assets ratio was 19.45% as of March 31, 2022, a decrease from 21.25% as of December 31, 2021, and an increase from 18.26% as of March 31, 2021.
