HONOLULU, July 27, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Central Pacific Financial Corp. (NYSE: CPF) (the "Company"), parent company of Central Pacific Bank (the "Bank" or "CPB"), today reported net income for the second quarter of 2022 of $17.6 million, or fully diluted earnings per share ("EPS") of $0.64, compared to net income in the second quarter of 2021 of $18.7 million, or EPS of $0.66, and net income in the first quarter of 2022 of $19.4 million, or EPS of $0.70. Net income for the second quarter of 2022, included an $8.5 million gain on the sale of the Company's Class B common stock of Visa, Inc., partially offset by a $4.9 million non-cash settlement charge related to the termination and settlement of the Company's defined benefit pension plan.
"We are pleased to report strong financial performance for the second quarter, highlighted by solid double-digit annualized loan growth, continued inflow of core deposits, net interest margin expansion, and excellent asset quality. With these favorable trends, we expect to drive further growth in earnings throughout the rest of 2022 and beyond," said Paul Yonamine, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer.
"Statewide Hawaii visitor arrivals are expected to exceed 90% of pre-pandemic levels in 2022, thanks in part to the gradual return of higher-spending international travelers. This will bode well for the state, creating additional opportunities for economic growth," said Arnold Martines, President and Chief Operating Officer.
During the second quarter, CPB was named the top bank in Hawaii in 2022 by Forbes. CPB finished ahead of the other local banks based on a survey that ranked all of the local banks on branch and digital services, overall customer service and trust as well as financial advice.
"This recognition validates that our digital and branch strategies are creating positive momentum in the market and is really a tribute to all of our hardworking employees who serve our valued customers to the best of their ability every day," Martines said.
Net interest income for the second quarter of 2022 was $53.0 million, compared to $52.1 million in the year-ago quarter and $50.9 million in the previous quarter. Net interest margin for the second quarter of 2022 was 3.05%, compared to 3.16% in the year-ago quarter and 2.97% in the previous quarter. The sequential quarter increase in net interest income and net interest margin is primarily due to higher average loan balances and higher average yields earned on loans and investment securities. These increases were partially offset by lower net interest income and loan fees on PPP loans. Net interest income for the second quarter of 2022 included $0.9 million in net interest income and loan fees on PPP loans, compared to $1.9 million in the previous quarter. Net deferred fees on PPP loans remaining at June 30, 2022 was $0.9 million, compared to $1.7 million at March 31, 2022. Additional information on average balances, interest income and expenses and yields and rates is presented in Tables 4 and 5.
In the second quarter of 2022, the Company recorded a provision for credit losses of $1.0 million, compared to releases of the credit loss reserves of $3.4 million and $3.2 million in the year-ago and previous quarters, respectively. The provision for credit losses in the second quarter of 2022 was driven by the increase in our loan portfolio and net charge-offs.
Other operating income for the second quarter of 2022 totaled $17.1 million, compared to $10.5 million in the year-ago quarter and $9.6 million in the previous quarter. The increase from the year-ago and previous quarters was primarily due to the sale of our restricted Class B common stock of Visa, Inc. The investment was carried at a zero cost basis, therefore the entire net proceeds from the sale of $8.5 million were recorded as a gain on sale of investment securities. The increase was partially offset by lower income from bank-owned life insurance ("BOLI"). The Company recognized BOLI expense of $1.0 million during second quarter of 2022, compared to BOLI income of $1.2 million and $0.5 million in the year-ago and previous quarters, respectively. The lower BOLI income was primarily attributable to market volatility, and was offset by lower deferred compensation expense in other operating expenses. Additional information on other operating income is presented in Table 3.
Other operating expense for the second quarter of 2022 totaled $45.3 million, compared to $41.4 million in the year-ago quarter and $38.2 million in the previous quarter. The increase in other operating expense from the year-ago and previous quarters was primarily due to the termination and settlement of our defined benefit pension plan resulting in a non-cash settlement charge of $4.9 million (included in other). Additional information on other operating expense is presented in Table 3.
The efficiency ratio for the second quarter of 2022 was 64.68%, compared to 66.20% in the year-ago quarter and 63.16% in the previous quarter.
The effective tax rate for the second quarter of 2022 was 26.0%, compared to 23.9% in the year-ago quarter and 23.7% in the previous quarter. The increase in the effective tax rate compared to the year-ago and previous quarters was primarily due to lower tax-exempt BOLI income.
Balance Sheet Highlights
Total assets at June 30, 2022 of $7.30 billion increased by $120.7 million, or 1.7% from $7.18 billion at June 30, 2021, and remained relatively unchanged from $7.30 billion at March 31, 2022.
Total loans, net of deferred fees and costs, at June 30, 2022 of $5.30 billion increased from $5.08 billion at June 30, 2021, and increased from $5.17 billion at March 31, 2022. The sequential quarter increase in total loans included growth in commercial mortgage loans of $60.1 million, consumer loans of $50.5 million, home equity loans of $21.9 million, construction of $21.7 million, and residential mortgage of $16.7 million, offset by declines in PPP loans of $24.1 million and other commercial loans of $20.2 million. Loans by geographic distribution are summarized in Table 6.
Total deposits at June 30, 2022 of $6.62 billion increased from $6.40 billion at June 30, 2021, and increased from $6.60 billion at March 31, 2022. Core deposits, which include demand deposits, savings and money market deposits and time deposits up to $250,000, totaled $6.16 billion at June 30, 2022, and increased by $34.6 million from March 31, 2022. The Company's loan-to-deposit ratio was 80.1% at June 30, 2022, compared to 78.4% at March 31, 2022. Core deposit and total deposit balances are summarized in Table 7.
Nonperforming assets at June 30, 2022 totaled $5.0 million, or 0.07% of total assets, compared to $6.7 million, or 0.09% of total assets at June 30, 2021, and $5.3 million, or 0.07% of total assets at March 31, 2022. Additional information on nonperforming assets, past due and restructured loans is presented in Table 8.

Total shareholders' equity was $455.1 million at June 30, 2022, compared to $552.8 million and $486.3 million at June 30, 2021 and March 31, 2022, respectively. The decline in shareholders' equity was primarily due to an increase in unrealized losses on our available-for-sale investment securities portfolio which flow through accumulated other comprehensive income, and were driven by the rising interest rate environment.
During the second quarter of 2022, the Company repurchased 174,429 shares of common stock, at a total cost of $4.2 million, or an average cost per share of $24.18. During the six months ended June 30, 2022, the Company returned $25.3 million in capital to its shareholders through cash dividends and share repurchases.
The Company maintained its strong capital position and its capital ratios continue to exceed the levels required to be considered a "well-capitalized" institution for regulatory purposes under Basel III. At June 30, 2022, the Company's leverage capital, tier 1 risk-based capital, total risk-based capital, and common equity tier 1 ratios were 8.6%, 11.6%, 13.9%, and 10.7%, respectively, compared to 8.5%, 11.9%, 14.2%, and 10.9%, respectively, at March 31, 2022.
On July 26, 2022, the Company's Board of Directors declared a quarterly cash dividend of $0.26 per share on its outstanding common shares. The dividend will be payable on September 15, 2022 to shareholders of record at the close of business on August 31, 2022.
