Company reports net interest margin expansion in first quarter; provision for loan losses of $9.9 million or 85% of pre-tax income; and enters COVID-19 era with strong PPP lending for local businesses

WICHITA, Kan., April 29, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Equity Bancshares, Inc. (EQBK), (“Equity”, “we”, “us”, “our”), the Wichita-based holding company of Equity Bank, reported its unaudited results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2020, including net income allocable to common stockholders of $1.3 million, or $0.08 per diluted share.

“Our first quarter 2020 results exceeded our expectations on a pre-loan loss provision basis,” said Brad Elliott, Chairman and CEO of Equity. “We were able to increase our net interest margin by moving swiftly to lower our cost of liabilities in the quarter. In this COVID-19 environment we believe the prudent course of action, at this point, is to provide reserves for the unknown, which we did with a $9.9 million provision for loan losses.”

Equity completed over 1,600 Small Business Administration (“SBA”) loan applications through phase one of the Paycheck Protection Program (“PPP”) as part of the U.S. Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security Act (“CARES Act”) signed into law on March 27, 2020. The relief from Equity-administered loans helped more than 78,000 employees working in small businesses throughout Equity’s regions in Kansas, Missouri, Oklahoma and Arkansas.

Equity moved its branch operations to a “Branch Light, Drive Through First” model beginning on March 16, 2020 sequentially throughout its markets. The Company continued to provide full service through its drive-through banking teams and offered lobby access to commercial, mortgage and consumer customers upon request. Equity saw a 7% monthly increase in digital transactions, including bill payments, mobile deposits and transfers in March 2020, and a 9% monthly increase in total logins.

“In our first quarter, I’m proud of our collective efforts as a company to continue to deliver outstanding service to our customers while helping them manage through an unprecedented crisis,” said Mr. Elliott. “It’s critical for us to fulfill a leadership role in our communities, helping local businesses to continue to operate. I am proud of our Equity Bank team members and their commitment to our communities, which is key to our success as a company. Our bankers were front-and-center to businesses in need and our credit administration and loan processing teams have worked efficiently and swiftly to ensure our customers have uninterrupted services.”

Notable Items:

  • Net income before taxes for the first quarter of 2020 was $1.7 million, or $0.11 per diluted share, compared to a net loss before taxes of $5.2 million, or $0.33 per diluted share, for the same time period in 2019. There were no merger expenses in the first quarter of 2020. Net loss before taxes, adjusted to exclude merger expense was $4.6 million, or $0.29 per diluted share, for the first quarter of 2019.

  • Stated diluted income per share in the first quarter of 2020 was $0.08, as compared to $(0.26) in the first quarter of 2019. Income before taxes and provision for loan losses during the periods ending March 31, 2020 and 2019, was $11.6 million and $10.4 million.

  • On April 18, 2019, the Board of Directors of Equity Bancshares, Inc. authorized the repurchase of up to 1,100,000 shares of our Class A Voting Common Stock, par value $0.01 per share, from time to time, beginning April 29, 2019, and concluding October 30, 2020. The repurchase program does not obligate us to acquire a specific dollar amount or number of shares and it may be extended, modified or discontinued at any time without notice. There was a total of 295,461 shares repurchased during the first quarter of 2020 at a weighted average price of $23.33. In March, in response to the COVID-19 environment, the Board of Directors of Equity Bancshares voted to temporarily suspend the repurchase program. A total of 383,523 shares remain authorized for repurchase.

  • The CARES Act provided temporary relief for the implementation of Accounting Standards Update No. 2016-13, Measurement of Credit Losses on Financial Instruments and the Company has elected to calculate the required allowance for loan losses and the resulting provision for loan losses using the prior probable-incurred-loss method.

Equity’s Balance Sheet Highlights:

  • Total loans held for investment of $2.51 billion at March 31, 2020, as compared to total loans held for investment of $2.56 billion at December 31, 2019.

  • Total deposits were $2.96 billion at March 31, 2020, as compared to $3.06 billion at December 31, 2019. Signature deposits, including core deposits comprised of checking, savings and money market accounts, were $2.18 billion at March 31, 2020, as compared to $2.23 billion at December 31, 2019.

  • Total assets were $3.94 billion at March 31, 2020, as compared to $3.95 billion at December 31, 2019.

  • Book value per common share was $31.41 at March 31, 2020, as compared to $30.95 at December 31, 2019. Tangible book value per common share was $21.10 at March 31, 2020, as compared to $20.75 at December 31, 2019.

Financial Results for the Quarter Ended March 31, 2020

Net income allocable to common stockholders was $1.3 million for the three months ended March 31, 2020, as compared to net loss allocable to common stockholders of $4.1 million for the three months ended March 31, 2019, an increase of $5.3 million.

Diluted earnings per share were $0.08 for the three months ended March 31, 2020, as compared to a loss per share of $0.26 for the comparable period in 2019. Weighted average fully diluted shares were 15,595,024 and 15,804,508 for the three months ended March 31, 2020 and 2019.

Net interest income was $32.1 million for the three months ended March 31, 2020, as compared to $30.6 million for the three months ended March 31, 2019, a $1.5 million, or 4.7%, increase. The increase in net interest income was primarily driven by average rates of interest-bearing liabilities repricing at a faster rate than average rates of interest-earning assets.

The net interest margin was 3.67% for the three months ended March 31, 2020, as compared to 3.49% for the three months ended March 31, 2019. The increase in net interest margin was primarily due to a declining-rate environment where the average rate of interest-bearing liabilities fell faster than the average rate of interest-earning assets. Higher cost deposits were repriced downward and our Federal Home Loan Bank advances were refinanced at lower rates.

The provision for loan losses was $9.9 million for the three months ended March 31, 2020, as compared to $15.6 million for the three months ended March 31, 2019. Included in the first quarter of 2019 was a $14.5 million provision against one credit relationship we believe was an isolated incident that was unique within our portfolio. For the three months ended March 31, 2020, we had net charge-offs of $257 thousand as compared to net charge-offs of $760 thousand for the same period in 2019.

Total non-interest income for the quarter ended March 31, 2020, was $5.3 million, as compared to $5.3 million for the quarter ended March 31, 2019. A decrease in other non-interest income, mainly from the increase in derivative mark-to-market valuation losses, was principally offset by increases in debit card income, mortgage banking and service charges and fees.

Total non-interest expense was $25.8 million for the quarter ended March 31, 2020, as compared to $25.5 million for the quarter ended March 31, 2019. The increase in non-interest expense is due largely to increases in net occupancy and equipment, data processing, FDIC insurance, professional fees, other non-interest expense and other real estate owned, partially offset by decreases in salaries and employee benefits and telecommunications. Also, non-interest expense does not include any merger expenses for the three months ended March 31, 2020. Merger expenses for the three months ended March 31, 2019, totaled $639 thousand ($487 thousand after tax).

Equity’s effective tax rate for the quarter ended March 31, 2020, was 26.1%, as compared to 22.1% for the quarter ended March 31, 2019. For both of the comparable periods, the estimated annual effective tax rate at which income tax expense (benefits) have been provided reflect, in addition to statutory tax rates, the estimated tax-exempt interest income, non-taxable life insurance income, non-deductible facilitative merger expense and other non-deductible expense in proportion to anticipated annual income before income taxes, as well as federal income tax credits anticipated to be available in each annual period. Income tax expense for the quarter ended March 31, 2020, includes $62 thousand of additional expense attributable to the settlement in stock of restricted stock units and the exercise of stock options. The exercise of stock options and the settlement of restricted stock units in the quarter ended March 31, 2019, resulted in tax benefits of $8 thousand.

Loans, Deposits and Total Assets

Loans held for investment were $2.51 billion at March 31, 2020, as compared to $2.56 billion at December 31, 2019, a decrease of $49.5 million. The decrease in loans is primarily the result of net paydowns in the commercial and industrial, agricultural real estate and residential real estate portfolios, which were partially offset by originations during the quarter.

As of March 31, 2020, Equity’s allowance for loan losses to total loans was 0.87%, as compared to 0.48% at December 31, 2019. Total reserves, including purchase discounts, to total loans were approximately 1.26% as of March 31, 2020, as compared to 0.85% at December 31, 2019. Nonperforming assets were $48.1 million as of March 31, 2020, or 1.22% of total assets. Nonperforming assets were $46.9 million at December 31, 2019, or 1.19% of total assets.

Total deposits were $2.96 billion at March 31, 2020, as compared to $3.06 billion at December 31, 2019, a decrease of $103.1 million. This decrease included $80.9 million of savings, NOW and money market deposits and $49.4 million of time deposits, partially offset by an increase of $27.1 million in demand deposits. The changes in deposits are primarily from decreases by commercial customers and public fund balances related to distribution of tax monies at the local level and seasonality. Signature deposits were $2.18 billion at March 31, 2020, as compared to $2.23 billion at December 31, 2019.

At March 31, 2020, Equity had consolidated total assets of $3.94 billion, as compared to $3.95 billion at December 31, 2019, a decrease of $5.7 million.

Borrowings and Capital

At March 31, 2020, borrowings totaled $481.4 million, as compared to $383.6 million at December 31, 2019. The increase in borrowings was principally due to a $65.2 million increase in Federal Home Loan Bank advances and a $31.0 million increase in the bank stock loan balance.

At March 31, 2020, common stockholders’ equity totaled $477.4 million, $31.41 per common share, as compared to $478.1 million, $30.95 per common share, at December 31, 2019. Tangible common equity was $320.6 million and tangible book value per common share was $21.10 at March 31, 2020. Tangible common equity was $320.5 million and tangible book value per common share was $20.75 at December 31, 2019. During the first quarter of 2020, the company repurchased a total of 295,461 shares of our Class A Voting Common Stock at a total cost of $6.9 million, or $23.33 weighted average per share. The Company’s ratio of common equity tier 1 capital to risk-weighted assets was 11.67%, the total capital to risk-weighted assets was 13.00% and the total leverage ratio was 9.02% at March 31, 2020. The Company’s subsidiary, Equity Bank’s, ratio of common equity tier 1 capital to risk-weighted assets was 12.71%, the total capital to risk-weighted assets was 13.50% and the total leverage ratio was 9.39% at March 31, 2020.

Special Note Concerning Forward-Looking Statements

This press release contains “forward-looking statements” within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended. These forward-looking statements reflect the current views of Equity’s management with respect to, among other things, future events and Equity’s financial performance. These statements are often, but not always, made through the use of words or phrases such as “may,” “should,” “could,” “predict,” “potential,” “believe,” “will likely result,” “expect,” “continue,” “will,” “anticipate,” “seek,” “estimate,” “intend,” “plan,” “project,” “forecast,” “goal,” “target,” “would” and “outlook,” or the negative variations of those words or other comparable words of a future or forward-looking nature. These forward-looking statements are not historical facts, and are based on current expectations, estimates and projections about Equity’s industry, management’s beliefs and certain assumptions made by management, many of which, by their nature, are inherently uncertain and beyond Equity’s control. Accordingly, Equity cautions you that any such forward-looking statements are not guarantees of future performance and are subject to risks, assumptions and uncertainties that are difficult to predict. Although Equity believes that the expectations reflected in these forward-looking statements are reasonable as of the date made, actual results may prove to be materially different from the results expressed or implied by the forward-looking statements. Factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from Equity’s expectations include COVID-19 related impacts; competition from other financial institutions and bank holding companies; the effects of and changes in trade, monetary and fiscal policies and laws, including interest rate policies of the Federal Reserve Board; changes in the demand for loans; fluctuations in value of collateral and loan reserves; inflation, interest rate, market and monetary fluctuations; changes in consumer spending, borrowing and savings habits; and acquisitions and integration of acquired businesses; and similar variables. The foregoing list of factors is not exhaustive.

For discussion of these and other risks that may cause actual results to differ from expectations, please refer to “Cautionary Note Regarding Forward-Looking Statements” and “Risk Factors” in Equity’s Annual Report on Form 10-K filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on March 10, 2020, and any updates to those risk factors set forth in Equity’s subsequent Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q or Current Reports on Form 8-K. If one or more events related to these or other risks or uncertainties materialize, or if Equity’s underlying assumptions prove to be incorrect, actual results may differ materially from what Equity anticipates. Accordingly, you should not place undue reliance on any such forward-looking statements. Any forward-looking statement speaks only as of the date on which it is made, and Equity does not undertake any obligation to publicly update or review any forward-looking statement, whether as a result of new information, future developments or otherwise. New risks and uncertainties arise from time to time, such as COVID-19, and it is not possible for us to predict those events or how they may affect us. In addition, Equity cannot assess the impact of each factor on Equity’s business or the extent to which any factor, or combination of factors, may cause actual results to differ materially from those contained in any forward-looking statements. All forward-looking statements, expressed or implied, included in this press release are expressly qualified in their entirety by this cautionary statement. This cautionary statement should also be considered in connection with any subsequent written or oral forward-looking statements that Equity or persons acting on Equity’s behalf may issue.

(1) The effect of changes in volume is determined by multiplying the change in volume by the previous year's average rate. Similarly, the effect of rate changes is calculated by multiplying the change in average rate by the prior year's volume. The changes attributable to both volume and rate, which cannot be segregated, have been allocated to the volume variance and the rate variance in proportion to the relationship of the absolute dollar amount of the change in each.
