CVB Financial Corp. (CVBF) and its subsidiary, Citizens Business Bank (the “Company”), announced earnings for the quarter ended September 30, 2019.

CVB Financial Corp. reported net income of $50.4 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2019, compared with $54.5 million for the second quarter of 2019 and $38.6 million for the third quarter of 2018. Diluted earnings per share were $0.36 for the third quarter, compared to $0.39 for the prior quarter and $0.30 for the same period last year.

Chris Myers, President and CEO of Citizens Business Bank, commented, “Our financial metrics remained strong as we position our balance sheet for a continued flat or inverted interest rate yield curve. Deposit rate pressure has mostly subsided but competition for loans is acute.” Myers continued, “We are well positioned to compete for quality loan relationships as our cost of funds is low and our operating efficiency is excellent.”

Net income of $50.4 million for the third quarter of 2019 produced an annualized return on average equity (“ROAE”) of 10.18% and an annualized return on average tangible common equity (“ROATCE”) of 16.53%. ROAE and ROATCE for the second quarter of 2019 were 11.38% and 18.81%, respectively, and the third quarter of 2018 produced an ROAE and ROATCE of 10.17% and 15.04%, respectively. Annualized return on average assets (“ROAA”) was 1.78% for the third quarter, compared to 1.95% for the second quarter of 2019 and 1.52% for the third quarter of 2018. Second quarter of 2019 results included a $5.7 million pre-tax gain from the final settlement of a lawsuit related to an eminent domain condemnation of one of our banking centers. The efficiency ratio for the third quarter of 2019 was 39.60%, compared to 39.09% for the second quarter of 2019 and 47.49% for the third quarter of 2018. Expenses related to the Community Bank (“CB”) acquisition, which closed on August 10, 2018, totaled $244,000 for the third quarter of 2019, compared to $2.6 million for the prior quarter and $6.6 million for the third quarter of 2018.

Net income totaled $156.5 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2019. This represented a $47.7 million, or 43.83%, increase from the prior year. Diluted earnings per share were $1.12 for the nine months ended September 30, 2019, compared to $0.94 for the same period of 2018. Net income for the nine months ended September 30, 2019 produced an annualized ROAE of 10.89%, an ROATCE of 17.99% and an ROAA of 1.86%. This compares to ROAE of 11.86%, ROATCE of 14.89% and ROAA of 1.65% for the first nine months of 2018. The efficiency ratio for the nine months ended September 30, 2019 was 39.89%, compared to 44.31% for the first nine months of 2018.

Net interest income before provision for loan losses was $108.2 million for the quarter, which was a $2.9 million, or 2.61%, decrease from the second quarter of 2019, and a $15.3 million, or 16.53%, increase over the third quarter of 2018. Total interest income and fees on loans for the third quarter of 2019 of $98.8 million decreased $3.0 million, or 2.99%, from the second quarter of 2019, and increased $19.0 million, or 23.78%, from the third quarter of 2018. The year-over-year growth in interest income from loans was primarily due to the CB acquisition that occurred during the third quarter of 2018. Total investment income of $13.5 million decreased $1.0 million, or 7.04%, from the second quarter of 2019 and $2.7 million, or 16.48%, from the third quarter of 2018. Interest expense decreased $324,000 over the prior quarter and increased $1.6 million over the third quarter of 2018.

During the third quarter of 2019, $1.5 million of provision for loan losses was recorded, compared to $2.0 million of provision for loan losses for the prior quarter and $500,000 of provision for loan losses for the third quarter last year. The year-to-date loan loss provision for 2019 totaled $5.0 million, which was $6.5 million higher than 2018 year-to-date.

Noninterest income was $11.9 million for the third quarter of 2019, compared with $18.2 million for the second quarter of 2019 and $10.1 million for the third quarter of 2018. The $6.3 million quarter-over-quarter decrease was primarily due to a $5.7 million net gain from the legal settlement of an eminent domain condemnation of one of our banking center buildings located in Bakersfield in the second quarter of 2019.

Noninterest expense for the third quarter of 2019 was $47.5 million, compared to $50.5 million for the second quarter of 2019 and $48.9 million for the third quarter of 2018. The $3.0 million quarter-over-quarter decrease included a $2.4 million decrease in merger related expenses. The $1.3 million decrease in noninterest expense compared to the third quarter of 2018 reflects both the impact of merger related expense in the third quarter of 2018, which was $6.4 million higher than the current quarter, and year-over-year increase in staff expense of $3.8 million, principally due to additional compensation for former CB employees retained after the merger. As a percentage of average assets, noninterest expense was 1.68% for the third quarter of 2019, compared to 1.81% for the second quarter of 2019 and 1.93% for the third quarter of 2018.

Net Interest Income and Net Interest Margin

Net interest income, before provision for loan losses, was $108.2 million for the third quarter of 2019, compared to $111.1 million for the second quarter of 2019 and $92.8 million for the third quarter of 2018. Our net interest margin (tax equivalent) was 4.34% for the third quarter of 2019, compared to 4.49% for the second quarter of 2019 and 4.06% for the third quarter of 2018. Total average earning asset yields (tax equivalent) were 4.55% for the third quarter of 2019, compared to 4.72% for the second quarter of 2019 and 4.23% for the third quarter of 2018. The decrease in earning asset yield from the prior quarter was primarily due to a 17 basis point decrease in average loan yields. The growth in earning asset yield compared to the third quarter of 2018 was a combination of the growth in loan yields from 4.99% to 5.23% and a change in asset mix with average loans growing to 75.4% of earning assets for the third quarter of 2019, compared to 69.6% for the third quarter of 2018. Discount accretion decreased by $861,000 quarter-over-quarter and non-accrued interest paid decreased by $1.2 million. As a result of the acquisition of CB, discount accretion increased by $3.7 million compared to the third quarter of 2018. The tax equivalent yield on investments decreased seven basis points from the second quarter of 2019 and two basis points from the third quarter of 2018. Average earning assets declined from the second quarter of 2019 by $11.6 million to $9.94 billion for the third quarter of 2019. Average earning assets increased by $822.1 million, or 9%, from the third quarter of 2018. Quarter-over-quarter average loans declined by $63.2 million, while loans grew by $1.15 billion on average compared to the third quarter of 2018. Investment securities declined on average by $104.5 million from the second quarter and by $426.6 million compared to the third quarter of 2018. Total cost of funds decreased to 0.23% for the third quarter of 2019 from 0.25% for the second quarter of 2019. Compared to the prior quarter, interest-bearing deposits and customer repurchase agreements declined on average by $72.4 million and short term borrowings declined by $121.5 million on average. In contrast, noninterest-bearing deposits grew on average by $133.8 million during the quarter. Compared to the third quarter of 2018, the overall cost of interest-bearing deposits and customer repurchase agreements grew by 17 basis points but the overall cost of funds increased by only five basis points. This was due to the continued strength and growth of noninterest-bearing deposits, which represented over 60% of total average deposits for the third quarter of 2019.

Income Taxes

Our effective tax rate for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2019 was 29%, compared with 28% for the same periods of 2018. Our estimated annual effective tax rate varies depending upon the level of tax-advantaged income as well as available tax credits.

Assets

The Company reported total assets of $11.33 billion at September 30, 2019. This represented a decrease of $196.4 million, or 1.70%, from total assets of $11.53 billion at December 31, 2018. Interest-earning assets of $10.01 billion at September 30, 2019 decreased $281.0 million, or 2.73%, when compared with $10.29 billion at December 31, 2018. The decrease in interest-earning assets was primarily due to a $270.2 million decrease in total loans and a $204.2 million decrease in investment securities, partially offset by a $195.4 million increase in interest-earning balances due from the Federal Reserve.

Total assets of $11.33 billion at September 30, 2019 decreased $147.6 million, or 1.29%, from total assets of $11.48 billion at September 30, 2018. Interest-earning assets totaled $10.01 billion at September 30, 2019, a decrease of $187.1 million, or 1.84%, when compared with earning assets of $10.19 billion at September 30, 2018. The decrease in interest-earning assets was primarily due to a $290.9 million decrease in investment securities and an $88.0 million decrease in total loans, partially offset by a $194.9 million increase in interest-earning balances due from the Federal Reserve.

Investment Securities

Total investment securities were $2.27 billion at September 30, 2019, a decrease of $53.8 million, or 2.31%, from $2.33 billion at June 30, 2019, a decrease of $204.2 million, or 8.24%, from $2.48 billion at December 31, 2018 and a decrease of $290.9 million, or 11.34%, from $2.57 billion at September 30, 2018. The decrease in investment securities was due to cash outflow from the portfolio, partially offset by reinvesting activity during the year.

At September 30, 2019, investment securities held-to-maturity (“HTM”) totaled $704.0 million, a $40.5 million decrease, or 5.44%, from December 31, 2018 and a $55.1 million decrease, or 7.26%, from September 30, 2018.

At September 30, 2019 investment securities available-for-sale (“AFS”) totaled $1.57 billion, inclusive of a pre-tax net unrealized gain of $21.0 million.

Combined, the AFS and HTM investments in mortgage backed securities (“MBS”) and collateralized mortgage obligations (“CMOs”) totaled $1.91 billion at September 30, 2019, compared to $2.06 billion at December 31, 2018 and $2.13 billion at September 30, 2018. Virtually all of our MBS and CMOs are issued or guaranteed by government or government sponsored enterprises, which have the implied guarantee of the U.S. Government.

Our combined AFS and HTM municipal securities totaled $243.3 million as of September 30, 2019. These securities are located in 27 states. Our largest concentrations of holdings are located in Minnesota at 25.29%, Massachusetts at 11.91%, Texas at 9.10%, Connecticut at 6.25%, and Wisconsin at 5.56%.

Loans

Total loans and leases, net of deferred fees and discounts, of $7.49 billion at September 30, 2019 decreased by $41.2 million, or 0.55%, from June 30, 2019. The quarter-over-quarter decrease in loans was due to declines of $41.7 million in commercial real estate loans and $8.0 million in Small Business Administration (“SBA”) loans. The decrease in loans and leases were partially offset by an increase of $9.5 million in dairy & livestock and agribusiness loans.

Total loans and leases, net of deferred fees and discounts, of $7.49 billion at September 30, 2019 decreased by $270.2 million, or 3.48%, from December 31, 2018. The decrease in total loans included an $89.2 million decline in dairy & livestock loans primarily due to seasonal pay downs, which historically occur in the first quarter of each calendar year. Excluding dairy and livestock loans, total loans declined by $181.9 million, or 2.45%. The decrease in total loans included declines of $81.1 million in commercial and industrial loans, $33.0 million in commercial real estate loans, $31.7 million in SBA loans, $18.0 million in SFR mortgage loans, and $11.5 million in consumer and other loans.

Total loans and leases, net of deferred fees and discounts, of $7.49 billion at September 30, 2019 decreased by $88.0 million, or 1.16%, from September 30, 2018. Commercial and industrial loans decreased by $100.7 million, SBA loans decreased by $38.8 million, consumer and other loans decreased by $17.9 million, SFR mortgage loans decreased by $14.0 million, and municipal lease finance receivables decreased by $13.1 million. This decline was partially offset by an increase of $91.9 million in commercial real estate loans.

The decrease in loan totals over the prior three quarterly periods has been primarily due to loan payoffs from the former CB loan portfolio.

Deposits & Customer Repurchase Agreements

Deposits of $8.79 billion and customer repurchase agreements of $407.9 million totaled $9.20 billion at September 30, 2019. This represented an increase of $118.1 million, or 1.30%, when compared with $9.08 billion at June 30, 2019. In contrast, total deposits and customer repurchase agreements decreased $67.6 million, or 0.73%, when compared with $9.27 billion at December 31, 2018. Deposits and customer repurchase agreements decreased by $307.1 million, or 3.23%, when compared with total deposits and customer repurchase agreements of $9.51 billion at September 30, 2018.

Noninterest-bearing deposits were $5.39 billion at September 30, 2019, an increase of $134.9 million, or 2.57%, when compared to $5.25 billion at June 30, 2019, an increase of $180.3 million, or 3.46%, when compared to December 31, 2018, and an increase of $161.0 million, or 3.08%, when compared to $5.22 billion at September 30, 2018. At September 30, 2019, noninterest-bearing deposits were 61.23% of total deposits, compared to 58.96% at December 31, 2018, and 57.35% at September 30, 2018.

Our average cost of interest-bearing deposits increased from 0.47% for the second quarter of 2019 to 0.53% for the third quarter of 2019. However, the average cost of total deposits only increased from 0.19% to 0.21%, as average noninterest-bearing deposits grew from 59.14% of average total deposits in the prior quarter to 60.14% in the current quarter. Our average cost of total deposits including customer repurchase agreements was 0.22% for the quarter ended September 30, 2019, compared to 0.20% for the prior quarter and 0.15% for the quarter ended September 30, 2018.

The allowance for loan losses for the third quarter of 2019 was increased by $1.5 million in provision for loan losses and by $40,000 in net recoveries on loans. The increase in the allowance was primarily due to growth of non-acquired loans. The allowance for loan losses was 0.92%, 0.89%, 0.82%, and 0.79% of total loans and leases outstanding, at September 30, 2019, June 30, 2019, December 31, 2018, and September 30, 2018, respectively. The allowance for loan losses as a percentage of non-acquired loans was 1.37% at September 30, 2019, compared to 1.36% at June 30, 2019, 1.32% at December 31, 2018 and 1.33% at September 30, 2018.

Nonperforming loans, defined as nonaccrual loans plus nonperforming TDR loans, were $6.6 million at September 30, 2019, or 0.09% of total loans.
