Company strengthens local businesses, customers and communities during COVID-19 era, positions capital and balance sheet for future growth

WICHITA, Kan., July 21, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Equity Bancshares, Inc. (NASDAQ: EQBK), (“Equity”, “we”, “us”, “our”), the Wichita-based holding company of Equity Bank, reported its unaudited results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2020, including net income allocable to common stockholders of $1.7 million, or $0.11 per diluted share. Year-to-date 2020 net income allocable to common stockholders was $2.9 million, or $0.19 per diluted share.

“During the second quarter we continued to support our communities and customers, including small businesses,” said Brad Elliott, Chairman and CEO of Equity. “We’ve been able to add new customers and clients through lending programs such as the Paycheck Protection Program and Main Street Lending Program, but notably, our Equity Bank teams have continued to work one-on-one with local businesses to evaluate credit needs and strategic planning in both the near-term and long-term future. In addition, we’ve been able to strengthen our capital and build value for our stockholder base, all while prioritizing continued, uninterrupted service to our customers.”

As of June 30, 2020, Equity has completed 3,198 Small Business Administration (“SBA”) loan applications through 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 Bank-administered loans helped more than 90,000 employees working in small businesses throughout Equity’s regions in Kansas, Missouri, Oklahoma and Arkansas. Equity also is participating in the Main Street Lending Program, designed to keep credit flowing to small and mid-sized businesses in good financial standing during the COVID-19 crisis.

On June 29, 2020, Equity issued $42 million aggregate principal amount of fixed-to-floating rate subordinated notes due 2030 to certain institutional accredited investors and qualified institutional buyers in a private placement transaction. Equity will use the net proceeds from the offering for general corporate purposes, including repayment of Equity’s senior debt, which occurred on June 30, 2020, and for opportunistic growth. On June 30, 2020, Equity also renewed its senior credit facility with ServisFirst Bank.

As of May 2020, all of Equity’s bank locations were open to customers with social distancing measures in place, allowing full access for customer use. During March and April, Equity adopted a “Branch Light, Drive Through First” model throughout its markets, optimizing customer service delivery by appointment, calling ahead, knocking or using drive through. Equity continues to serve customers curbside and drive through but offers full lobby access during normal hours. Equity’s digital products, including online banking and mobile deposit, have increased in active digital users by 10 percent during the six-month period ended June 30, 2020.

“We remain focused on our strategy to deliver sophisticated banking products and services to customers who value the dedication and support of a community bank and I’m proud of our Equity teams throughout our footprint for collaborating and supporting our communities,” said Mr. Elliott. “We did not close a single bank location in March, April or May, but simply modified service and solutions. A strong community bank should step up and work directly with customers and we’ve been able to do just that. Our business will continue to be rewarded, as a leader in our industry and region. We have seen new business from both retail and commercial customers attracted to a bank that is innovative and open for business as usual.”

Notable Items:

  • Net income before taxes for the second quarter of 2020 was $2.2 million, or $0.14 per diluted share, compared to net income before taxes of $11.7 million, or $0.74 per diluted share, for the same time period in 2019. Net income before taxes for the first six months of 2020 was $3.9 million, or $0.25 per diluted share. There were no merger expenses in the first six months of 2020. Net income before taxes, adjusted to exclude merger expense was $7.4 million, or $0.46 per diluted share, for the first six months of 2019.

  • Stated income per diluted share in the second quarter of 2020 was $0.11, as compared to $0.58 in the second quarter of 2019. Income before taxes and provision for loan losses during the quarters ending June 30, 2020 and 2019, was $14.7 million, or $0.96 per diluted share, and $12.7 million, or $0.80 per diluted share.

  • At June 30, 2020 there were $649.3 million of loans under deferment in connection with addressing customers’ credit needs during the COVID-19 crisis. At the end of the deferral periods, the Company will review a customer’s year-end 2019 and interim financial statements, operating projections for the remainder of 2020 and the business environment to determine if our customers’ businesses are still being impacted by COVID-19 before granting an additional 90-day deferment.

  • 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. In keeping with interagency guidance, the Company executed a payment deferral program for commercial lending clients adversely affected by the pandemic, which are not considered troubled debt restructurings.

Equity’s Balance Sheet Highlights:

  • Total loans held for investment of $2.81 billion at June 30, 2020, as compared to total loans held for investment of $2.56 billion at December 31, 2019.

  • Total deposits were $3.25 billion at June 30, 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 $2.56 billion at June 30, 2020, as compared to $2.23 billion at December 31, 2019.

  • Total assets were $4.21 billion at June 30, 2020, as compared to $3.95 billion at December 31, 2019.

  • Book value per common share was $31.53 at June 30, 2020, as compared to $30.95 at December 31, 2019. Tangible book value per common share was $21.29 at June 30, 2020, as compared to $20.75 at December 31, 2019.

Financial Results for the Six Months Ended June 30, 2020

Net income allocable to common stockholders was $2.9 million for the six months ended June 30, 2020, as compared to $5.2 million for the six months ended June 30, 2019, a decrease of $2.2 million.

Diluted earnings per share were $0.19 for the six-month period ended June 30, 2020, as compared to $0.32 for the comparable period in 2019. Weighted average fully diluted shares were 15,449,517 and 15,992,265 for the six months ended June 30, 2020, and 2019.

Net interest income was $65.0 million for the six months ended June 30, 2020, as compared to $61.9 million for the six months ended June 30, 2019, a $3.1 million, or 4.9% increase. The increase in net interest income was primarily driven by growth in loan balances, a reduction in interest-bearing time deposit balances and a decrease in the cost of interest-bearing liabilities, partially offset by a decrease in rates on interest-earning assets.

Our net interest margin was 3.58% for the six months ended June 30, 2020, as compared to 3.46% for the six months ended June 30, 2019. The increase in net interest margin was primarily due to a decrease in overall cost of funds in excess of the reduction of asset yields.

The provision for loan losses was $22.4 million for the six-month period ended June 30, 2020, as compared to $16.6 million for the six-month period ended June 30, 2019. The provision for the six months ended June 30, 2020, is primarily related to the impact of COVID-19 on overall credit. Included in the first quarter of 2019 was a $14.5 million provision against one credit relationship that we believe was an isolated incident that was unique within our portfolio. Net charge-offs for the six months ended June 30, 2020, were $594 thousand, as compared to net charge-offs, adjusted for charge-offs related to the previously mentioned credit relationship, of $506 thousand for the comparable period in 2019.

Total non-interest income was $11.0 million for the six months ended June 30, 2020, as compared to $11.8 million for the six months ended June 30, 2019. The decrease is largely attributable to reductions in service charges and fees, and other income, mainly from derivative mark-to-market adjustments, partially offset by increases in mortgage banking and debit card income.

Total non-interest expense was $49.7 million for the six months ended June 30, 2020, as compared to $50.6 million for the six months ended June 30, 2019. The decrease in non-interest expense was largely due to reductions in salaries and employee benefits, merger expenses, advertising and business development and telecommunications, partially offset by increases in data processing, other non-interest expense, amortization of core deposit intangibles, net occupancy and equipment and other real estate owned expense. The overall decrease in salaries and employee benefits was due to the deferral of loan origination cost associated with originating the PPP loans during the six months ended June 30, 2020.

Equity’s effective tax rate for the six months ended June 30, 2020, was 24.2%, as compared to 20.8% for the first six months of 2019. For both of the comparable periods, the estimated annual effective tax rate at which income tax expense has 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 six-month period ended June 30, 2020, includes $67 thousand of additional tax 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 first six months of 2019 resulted in tax benefits of $18 thousand.

Financial Results for the Quarter Ended June 30, 2020

Net income allocable to common stockholders was $1.7 million for the three months ended June 30, 2020, as compared to $9.2 million for the three months ended June 30, 2019, a decrease of $7.5 million.

Diluted earnings per share were $0.11 for the three months ended June 30, 2020, as compared to $0.58 for the comparable period in 2019. Weighted average fully diluted shares were 15,304,009 and 15,918,274 for the three months ended June 30, 2020, and 2019.

Net interest income was $32.9 million for the three months ended June 30, 2020, as compared to $31.3 million for the three months ended June 30, 2019, a $1.6 million, or 5.1% 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 3.49% for the three months ended June 30, 2020, as compared to 3.42% for the three months ended June 30, 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 and our Federal Home Loan Bank advances were repriced down as market interest rates dropped.

The provision for loan losses was $12.5 million for the three months ended June 30, 2020, as compared to $974 thousand for the three months ended June 30, 2019. For the three months ended June 30, 2020, we had net charge-offs of $337 thousand as compared to net charge-offs, adjusted for one previously mentioned credit relationship, of $299 thousand for the same period in 2019. The provision for the three months ended June 30, 2020, is primarily related to the impact of COVID-19 on to overall credit.

Total non-interest income for the quarter ended June 30, 2020, was $5.7 million, as compared to $6.5 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2019. Decreases in service charges and fees were partially offset by an increase in mortgage banking income.

Total non-interest expense was $23.9 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2020, as compared to $25.0 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2019. The decrease in non-interest expense is due largely to reductions in salaries and employee benefits, advertising and business development, FDIC insurance, professional fees, and merger expense, partially offset by increases in data processing, amortization of core deposit intangibles and loan expense. The overall decrease in salaries and employee benefits was due to the deferral of loan origination cost associated with originating the PPP loans during the three months ended June 30, 2020.

Equity’s effective tax rate for the quarter ended June 30, 2020, was 22.7%, as compared to 21.4% for the quarter ended June 30, 2019.

Loans, Deposits and Total Assets

Loans held for investment were $2.81 billion at June 30, 2020, as compared to $2.56 billion at December 31, 2019, an increase of $249.7 million. The increase in loans is primarily the result of increases in commercial and industrial and commercial real estate loans, which were partially offset by reductions in real estate construction loans and residential real estate loans. Included in the commercial and industrial loan increase is $373.0 million of PPP loans to existing and new customers that carry a 1.00% rate but provide the ability to support our markets in a period of need.

As of June 30, 2020, Equity’s allowance for loan losses to total loans was 1.21%, as compared to 0.48% at December 31, 2019. Total reserves, including purchase discounts, to total loans were approximately 1.57% as of June 30, 2020, as compared to 0.85% at December 31, 2019. Nonperforming assets were $57.8 million as of June 30, 2020, or 1.37% of total assets. Nonperforming assets were $46.9 million at December 31, 2019, or 1.19% of total assets.

Total deposits were $3.25 billion at June 30, 2020, as compared to $3.06 billion at December 31, 2019, an increase of $183.8 million. This increase included $275.3 million of demand and $51.1 million of savings, NOW and money market deposits, partially offset by a decrease of $142.6 million in time deposits. The changes in demand, savings, NOW and money market deposits are primarily from increases in existing customer balances, a portion of which are related to PPP funding, in both the private and public sector. Signature deposits were $2.56 billion at June 30, 2020, as compared to $2.23 billion at December 31, 2019.

At June 30, 2020, Equity had consolidated total assets of $4.21 billion, as compared to $3.95 billion at December 31, 2019, an increase of $255.7 million.

Borrowings and Capital

At June 30, 2020, borrowings totaled $452.0 million, as compared to $383.6 million at December 31, 2019. The increase in borrowings was principally due to a $41.0 million increase in subordinated debentures, a $20.5 million increase in Federal Home Loan Bank advances and a $15.8 million increase in retail repurchase agreements, offset by a decrease of $9.0 million in the bank stock loan balance, which was paid in full June 30, 2020.

At June 30, 2020, common stockholders’ equity totaled $479.8 million, or $31.53 per common share, as compared to $478.1 million, or $30.95 per common share, at December 31, 2019. Tangible common equity was $324.0 million and tangible book value per common share was $21.29 at June 30, 2020. Tangible common equity was $320.5 million and tangible book value per common share was $20.75 at December 31, 2019. The Company’s ratio of common equity tier 1 capital to risk-weighted assets was 12.02%, the total capital to risk-weighted assets was 15.33% and the total leverage ratio was 8.52% at June 30, 2020. The Company’s subsidiary, Equity Bank, had a ratio of common equity tier 1 capital to risk-weighted assets of 13.11%, a ratio of total capital to risk-weighted assets of 14.37% and a total leverage ratio of 8.88% at June 30, 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.

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.
