Eagle Bancorp Montana Earns $3.9 Million, or $0.57 per Diluted Share, in First Quarter 2020; Declares Regular Quarterly Cash Dividend of $0.095 per Share; Announces COVID-19 Preparations

HELENA, Mont., April 28, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Eagle Bancorp Montana, Inc. (EBMT), (the “Company,” “Eagle”), the holding company of Opportunity Bank of Montana, today reported net income in the first quarter of 2020 increased substantially to $3.9 million, or $0.57 per diluted share, reflecting the high level of contributions from mortgage banking and gains from sale of loans. This compared to $1.2 million, or $0.18 per diluted share, in the first quarter of 2019, and $2.3 million, or $0.36 per diluted share, in the preceding quarter. There were $128,000 in acquisition costs in the first quarter of 2020, compared to $505,000 in the preceding quarter, and $1.2 million in the first quarter a year ago.

Eagle’s board of directors declared a quarterly cash dividend of $0.095 per share on April 23, 2020. The dividend will be payable June 5, 2020 to shareholders of record May 15, 2020. The current annualized dividend yield is 2.23% based on recent market prices.

“While our first quarter operating performance was strong, with record revenues and robust loan and deposit growth, we began to see the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic and its consequences on our Montana communities,” said Peter J. Johnson, President and CEO. “In recognition of the COVID-19 pandemic and to keep our employees, and communities safe and healthy, we have implemented social distancing actions and temporarily closed our branch lobbies mid-March while keeping open drive-up tellers. We have also made accommodations for employees to work from home. On March 28, 2020 the State of Montana implemented a Shelter-in-Place order, resulting in the closing of businesses or a substantial reduction in business activity. Recently, Montana’s governor lifted the order effective April 27th, including the beginning of a phased approach to re-open businesses. We are closely monitoring borrowers and businesses we service and are providing debt service relief for those that have been impacted.”

COVID-19 Preparations as of April 16, 2020:

  • Industry Exposure: Restaurants, lodging, schools, childcare, health care and entertainment industries, among others, have seen a dramatic change in revenues for their business. Eagle’s 5 largest concentrations by industry as a percent of total loans are lessors of nonresidential buildings (9.74%), lessors of residential buildings (5+ units) (6.57%), construction and related (5.80%), farm and ranch related (5.33%) and hotels (2.65%).

  • Loan Accommodations: The bank is offering multiple accommodation options to its clients, including 90-day deferrals, forbearances and interest only payments. As of April 22, 2020, there were 147 loans totaling $50.6 million deferring payments for 90 days, primarily from the real estate rental, accommodation and food services, and the art, entertainment and recreation industries. Approximately 104 borrowers representing $42.2 million in loans have been approved for up to 6-months interest only payments. There have been approximately 98 forbearances in process for residential mortgage loans. Utilization of borrowing lines at 84.6% remained constant at the end of the quarter compared to the previous quarter. Additionally, the Bank has halted deposit fees associated with early withdrawal requests. The Paycheck Protection Program is expected to provide some temporary relief to small business customers of Eagle but the extent of the impact the pandemic will have on businesses’ ability to sustain operations is unclear at this point. Eagle will continue to closely monitor each of its loans for risk.

  • Payroll Protection Plan (PPP): Congress passed the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (“CARES Act”) providing economic relief for the country, including the $349 billion Small Business Administration (“SBA”) Paycheck Protection Program (“PPP”) to fund short-term loans for small businesses. Eagle began taking loan applications from its small business clients immediately after the program was implemented, and as of April 16, 2020, had received approvals for $32.4 million in SBA PPP loans, with 171 loans funded for $15.2 million.

  • Provision for Loan Losses: As management began to see an economic slowdown, Eagle increased its provision for loan losses to $670,000 for the quarter ended March 31, 2020. Net loan charge-offs were $20,000 and approximately $450,000 of the provisions were related to normal loan growth. Additionally, management determined that with the Stay-at-Home Order and the closing of many businesses and resulting decline in business cash-flows, an increase in the related economic factors included in the allowance for loan losses analysis and loan loss reserves of approximately $220,000 was warranted.

  • Liquidity Changes: Through the end of the first quarter ended March 31, 2020, the liquidity level remained relatively consistent with the prior quarters. However, subsequent to the end of the quarter, and in coordination with the roll out of the PPP, Eagle anticipates using some short-term funding from the Federal Reserve. As the PPP loans are repaid, it is currently anticipated Eagle will repay Federal Reserve borrowings.

  • Technology Updates and Unusual Expenses: To accommodate the immediate need for personnel to work from home, Eagle purchased additional laptop computers and docking stations. There were also extra supplies and equipment needed to provide each location with a clean, disinfected and safer work environment. Most of these unusual expenses will be incurred in the second quarter and total approximately $100,000.

Acquisitions

On January 1, 2020, Eagle completed its acquisition of Western Holding Company of Wolf Point, and its wholly owned subsidiary, Western Bank of Wolf Point, in a transaction valued at approximately $15.0 million. In the transaction, Eagle acquired one retail bank branch and approximately $106 million in assets, $89 million in deposits and $43 million in gross loans.

“We completed our acquisition of Western Holding Company of Wolf Point at the beginning of the year, bringing our total to three completed mergers within the last three years,” said Johnson. “These three transactions further solidify our position as the fourth-largest Montana-based bank and provided us a unique opportunity to expand our market presence and lending activities. As with the past two acquisitions, the Western Holding Company of Wolf Point merger was immediately accretive to earnings per share.”

On January 1, 2019, Eagle completed its acquisition of Big Muddy Bancorp, Inc. and its wholly owned subsidiary, The State Bank of Townsend, located in Townsend, Montana, which added approximately $108 million in assets, $93 million in deposits and $89 million in gross loans.

On January 31, 2018, Eagle completed its acquisition of TwinCo Inc., which added approximately $96 million in assets, $82 million in deposits and $55 million in gross loans.

Balance Sheet Results

“Our recent acquisitions continue to deliver strong balance sheet growth, with total loans increasing 5.5% during the quarter and 12.9% year-over-year, resulting in solid overall expansion of the loan portfolio,” said Johnson. Total loans were $822.0 million at March 31, 2020, compared to $728.0 million a year earlier and $779.2 million three months earlier.

Eagle originated $140.3 million in new residential mortgages during the quarter, excluding construction loans, and sold $132.1 million in residential mortgages, with an average gross margin on sale of mortgage loans of approximately 4.10%. This production compares to residential mortgage originations of $164.9 million in the preceding quarter with sales of $151.0 million.

Commercial real estate loans increased 10.6% to $337.2 million at March 31, 2020, compared to $304.9 million a year earlier. Residential mortgage loans increased 5.2% to $122.7 million, compared to $116.6 million a year earlier. Agricultural and farmland loans increased 31.4% to $114.7 million at March 31, 2020, compared to $87.3 million a year earlier. Commercial loans increased 5.1% to $77.7 million, home equity loans increased 5.7% to $57.8 million, commercial construction and development loans increased 24.1% to $55.9 million, residential construction loans increased 35.0% to $37.4 million, and consumer loans increased 4.6% to $19.9 million, compared to a year ago.

Total deposits increased 19.9% to $888.2 million at March 31, 2020, compared to $741.0 million at March 31, 2019, and increased 9.8% compared to $809.0 million at December 31, 2019.

Tangible book value increased to $16.14 per share, at March 31, 2020, compared to $14.50 per share a year earlier and $16.04 per share three months earlier.

Operating Results

Eagle’s NIM was 4.04% in the first quarter of 2020, compared to 4.22% in the preceding quarter, and 4.33% in the first quarter a year ago. “The recent drop in short-term interest rates by the Federal Reserve during the first quarter, combined with the three interest rate reductions enacted by the Federal Reserve in 2019 put continued pressure on loan yields,” said Johnson. The interest accretion on purchased loans totaled $558,000 and resulted in a 22 basis-point increase in the NIM during the first quarter, compared to $536,000 and a 23 basis-point increase in the NIM during the preceding quarter.

The investment securities portfolio increased to $167.9 million at March 31, 2020, compared to $126.9 million at December 31, 2019, and $140.2 million at March 31, 2019. Average yields on earning assets for the first quarter decreased to 4.66% from 5.13% a year ago largely due to the acquired investment portfolio of Western Holding Company of Wolf Point.

Eagle’s first quarter revenues were $18.8 million, a 13.8% increase compared to $16.5 million in the preceding quarter and a 43.7% increase when compared to $13.1 million in the first quarter a year ago. The year-over-year increase is a result of increased mortgage banking income and gain on sale of mortgages and growth from the Western Holding Company of Wolf Point acquisition.

Net interest income, before the provision for loan loss, increased 4.6% to $10.5 million for the first quarter, compared to $10.0 million for the fourth quarter of 2019 and increased 11.8% compared to $9.4 million in the first quarter a year ago.

Eagle’s noninterest income increased 27.9% to $8.3 million in the first quarter of 2020, compared to $6.5 million in the preceding quarter, and increased 124.8% compared to $3.7 million in the first quarter a year ago. The net gain on sales of mortgage loans totaled $5.4 million in the first quarter of 2020 and $5.2 million in the preceding quarter including mortgage banking derivative fluctuations. This compares to $2.6 million in the first quarter a year ago.

First quarter noninterest expenses were $12.8 million compared to $12.6 million in the preceding quarter and $11.0 million in the first quarter a year ago. Acquisition costs totaled $128,000 for the current quarter, compared to $505,000 in the preceding quarter and $1.2 million in the first quarter one year ago.

For the first quarter of 2020, the income tax provision totaled $1.3 million, for an effective tax rate of 25.4%, compared to $959,000 in the preceding quarter and $261,000 in the first quarter of 2019.

Credit Quality

“We continue to build reserves based on robust loan growth, and also as a response to the expected COVID-19 economic disruption,” Johnson said. The first quarter provision for loan losses was $670,000, compared to $632,000 in the preceding quarter and $604,000 in the first quarter a year ago. The allowance for loan losses represented 155.8% of nonperforming loans at March 31, 2020, compared to 157.8% three months earlier and 133.6% a year earlier.

Nonperforming loans (“NPLs”) were $5.9 million at March 31, 2020, compared to $5.5 million at December 31, 2019, and $5.3 million a year earlier. The increase year-over-year in nonperforming loans was impacted by acquired loans which make up approximately $1.6 million of the balance as of March 31, 2020.

Eagle’s total other real estate owned (“OREO”) and other repossessed assets totaled $60,000 at March 31, 2020, compared to $26,000 at December 31, 2019 and $354,000 at March 31, 2019. Nonperforming assets (“NPAs”), consisting of nonaccrual loans, OREO and other repossessed assets, loans delinquent 90 days or more and restructured loans, increased to $6.0 million at March 31, 2020, or 0.52% of total assets, compared to $5.5 million, or 0.52% of total assets three months earlier and $5.3 million, or 0.58% of total assets a year earlier.

Net loan charge-offs totaled $20,000 in the first quarter of 2020, compared to $233,000 in the fourth quarter of 2019 and $104,000 in the first quarter a year ago. The allowance for loan losses was $9.3 million, or 1.13% of total loans, at March 31, 2020, compared to $8.6 million, or 1.10% of total loans, at December 31, 2019, and $7.1 million, or 0.98% of total loans, a year ago.

A fair value analysis of the acquired loan portfolios of Western Holding Company of Wolf Point, Big Muddy Bancorp, Inc., and Twin Co, Inc. resulted in an accretable discount at the time of acquisition. The total loan discount on Western Holding Company of Wolf Point acquired loans was $1.2 million as of January 1, 2020, with $1.0 million remaining as of March 31, 2020. The total loan discount on Big Muddy Bancorp, Inc. acquired loans was $2.8 million as of January 1, 2019, with $1.2 million remaining as of March 31, 2020. The total loan discount on Twin Co, Inc. acquired loans was $1.8 million as of January 31, 2018, with $528,000 remaining at March 31, 2020. The total remaining accretable loan discount as of March 31, 2020 was $2.8 million.

Forward Looking Statements

This release may contain certain "forward-looking statements" within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933 and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, and may be identified by the use of such words as "believe," “will”’ "expect," "anticipate," "should," "planned," "estimated," and "potential." These forward-looking statements include, but are not limited to statements of our goals, intentions and expectations; statements regarding our business plans, prospects, mergers with Western Bank of Wolf Point, Ruby Valley Bank and The State Bank of Townsend, growth and operating strategies; statements regarding the current global COVID-19 pandemic, statements regarding the asset quality of our loan and investment portfolios; and estimates of our risks and future costs and benefits. These forward-looking statements are based on current beliefs and expectations of our management and are inherently subject to significant business, economic and competitive uncertainties and contingencies, many of which are beyond our control. In addition, these forward-looking statements are subject to assumptions with respect to future business strategies and decisions that are subject to change. These factors include, but are not limited to, changes in laws or government regulations or policies affecting financial institutions, including changes in regulatory fees and capital requirements; general economic conditions and political events, either nationally or in our market areas, that are worse than expected; the duration and impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, including but not limited to adverse effects on our employees, customers and third-party service providers, the ultimate extent of the impacts on our business, financial position, results of operations, liquidity and prospects, continued deterioration in general business and economic conditions could adversely affect our revenues and the values of our assets and liabilities, lead to a tightening of credit and increase stock price volatility, and potential impairment charges; competition among depository and other financial institutions; loan demand or residential and commercial real estate values in Montana; our ability to continue to increase and manage our commercial real estate, commercial business and agricultural loans; the costs and effects of legal, compliance and regulatory actions, changes and developments, including the initiation and resolution of legal proceedings (including any securities, bank operations, consumer or employee litigation; inflation and changes in the interest rate environment that reduce our margins or reduce the fair value of financial instruments; adverse changes in the securities markets; other economic, governmental, competitive, regulatory and technological factors that may affect our operations; cyber incidents, or theft or loss of Company or customer data or money; the effect of our acquisitions of Western Bank of Wolf Point, Ruby Valley Bank and The State Bank of Townsend, including the failure to achieve expected revenue growth and/or expense savings, the failure to effectively integrate their operations and the diversion of management time on issues related to the integration.

All information set forth in this press release is current as of the date of this release and the company undertakes no duty or obligation to update this information.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

In addition to results presented in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles utilized in the United States, or GAAP, the Financial Ratios and Other Data contains non-GAAP financial measures. Non-GAAP disclosures include: 1) core efficiency ratio, 2) tangible book value per share, 3) tangible common equity to tangible assets, 4) earnings per diluted share, excluding acquisition costs and 5) return on average assets, excluding acquisition costs. The Company uses these non-GAAP financial measures to provide meaningful supplemental information regarding the Company’s operational performance and to enhance investors’ overall understanding of such financial performance. In particular, the use of tangible book value per share and tangible common equity to tangible assets is prevalent among banking regulators, investors and analysts.

The numerator for the core efficiency ratio is calculated by subtracting acquisition costs and intangible asset amortization from noninterest expense. Tangible assets and tangible common shareholders’ equity are calculated by excluding intangible assets from assets and shareholders’ equity, respectively. For these financial measures, our intangible assets consist of goodwill and core deposit intangible. Tangible book value per share is calculated by dividing tangible common shareholders’ equity by the number of common shares outstanding. We believe that this measure is consistent with the capital treatment by our bank regulatory agencies, which exclude intangible assets from the calculation of risk-based capital ratios and present this measure to facilitate the comparison of the quality and composition of our capital over time and in comparison, to our competitors.

Non-GAAP financial measures have inherent limitations, are not required to be uniformly applied, and are not audited. Further, the non-GAAP financial measure of tangible book value per share should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for book value per share or total shareholders’ equity determined in accordance with GAAP, and may not be comparable to a similarly titled measure reported by other companies. Reconciliation of the GAAP and non-GAAP financial measures are presented below.

* The core efficiency ratio is a non-GAAP ratio that is calculated by dividing non-interest expense, exclusive of acquisition

costs and intangible asset amortization, by the sum of net interest income and non-interest income.

** The tangible book value per share is a non-GAAP ratio that is calculated by dividing shareholders' equity,

less goodwill and core deposit intangible, by common shares outstanding.

*** The tangible common equity to tangible assets is a non-GAAP ratio that is calculated by dividing shareholders'

equity, less goodwill and core deposit intangible, by total assets, less goodwill and core deposit intangible.
