LOS ANGELES, Jan. 26, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Hanmi Financial Corporation (NASDAQ: HAFC, or “Hanmi”), the parent company of Hanmi Bank (the “Bank”), today reported net income for the 2020 fourth quarter of $14.3 million, or $0.47 per diluted share, compared with $16.3 million, or $0.53 per diluted share for the 2020 third quarter and $3.1 million, or $0.10 per diluted share for the 2019 fourth quarter.

For the 2020 year, net income was $42.2 million, or $1.38 per diluted share, compared with $32.8 million, or $1.06 per diluted share, for 2019.

Bonnie Lee, President and Chief Executive Officer, said, “In a year of unprecedented operating challenges and economic uncertainty, Hanmi completed 2020 with a strong performance in the fourth quarter highlighted by excellent loan production, stable net interest margin and careful expense management. Total loan and lease production of $327.8 million increased more than 27% from the prior quarter and contributed to the 5.9% growth in loans and leases for the full year. Fourth quarter net interest margin—or NIM—remained stable at 3.13% as we were able to offset declining loan yields through lower deposit costs. Overall, we were successful in protecting NIM throughout the year. I was also pleased by our cost reduction measures that led to a year-over-year decline in noninterest expense of 9.3% for the fourth quarter and 5.4% for the full year. In combination, these efforts generated full-year net income of $42.2 million, an increase of 28.7% over the prior year.”

Ms. Lee continued, “Throughout the pandemic, we have focused on helping our borrowers affected by the crisis through loan modifications and these efforts have been very successful in protecting the value of our portfolio. I continue to be very pleased with the trends of the modified portfolio, which has declined significantly from the prior quarter and now represents just 3.2% of our loans. I am also very proud of our efforts earlier in the year originating loans under the federal government’s Paycheck Protection Program that included almost 3,100 loans totaling nearly $309 million to assist affected customers. Overall, we remain very committed to proactive asset management and helping our borrowers weather the crisis while minimizing future charge-offs.”

Ms. Lee concluded, “Much was accomplished in 2020 and I thank our entire team for their dedication and commitment. Looking ahead, our solid balance sheet and capital position coupled with our strong loan and deposit franchise, gives me confidence that we will deliver profitable growth as we remain cautiously optimistic that the economy will continue to improve.”

Results of Operations
Net interest income was $46.9 million for the fourth quarter of 2020 compared with $45.6 million for the third quarter of 2020, an increase of 2.8%, or $1.3 million, primarily due to lower interest expense on deposits. Fourth quarter deposit interest expense decreased 24.2%, or $1.7 million, from the preceding quarter driven by a 23 basis point reduction in the average rate paid on interest-bearing deposits. Interest and fees on loans decreased 0.4%, or $0.2 million, from the preceding quarter reflecting an 8 basis point reduction in average yields. Fourth quarter loan prepayment penalties were $0.8 million compared with $1.3 million for the third quarter.

Net interest income of $180.9 million for the full year of 2020 increased 2.9%, or $5.0 million from $175.9 million for the full year of 2019. The year-over-year increase in net interest income reflects an 81 basis point decrease in the average rate paid on interest-bearing deposits offset by a 78 basis point decrease in the average yield on interest-earning assets.

Net interest margin was 3.13% for the fourth quarter of 2020, unchanged from the prior quarter, as a 14 basis point decline in the yield on earning assets was offset by a 23 basis point decline in the cost of interest-bearing deposits. For the full year, net interest margin was 3.19% for 2020 compared with 3.37% for 2019.

The yield on average earning assets was 3.63% for the fourth quarter of 2020 compared with 3.77% for the third quarter of 2020. The 14 basis point decline was primarily due to a reduction in yields on securities and loans receivable. Full year yields decreased 78 basis points to 3.95% for 2020 from 4.73% for 2019.

The cost of interest-bearing liabilities was 0.83% for the fourth quarter of 2020 compared with 1.05% for the third quarter of 2020. The 23 basis point decline in the cost of interest-bearing deposits drove the lower cost of interest-bearing liabilities. For 2020, the cost of interest-bearing liabilities was 1.20% compared with 1.99% for the full year 2019, reflecting the current lower interest rate environment.

For the fourth quarter of 2020, credit loss expense was $5.1 million, comprised of a $5.7 million provision for loan losses, a $2.9 million negative provision for off-balance sheet items and a $2.3 million provision for losses on accrued interest receivable for modified loans. Credit loss expense for the third quarter of 2020 was $0.04 million, comprised of a provision for loan losses of $0.70 million and a negative provision for off-balance sheet items of $0.66 million. At December 31, 2020, accrued interest receivable on current and former modified loans was $9.2 million and the related allowance for possible losses was $1.7 million.

Credit loss expense for the full year 2020 was $45.5 million compared with $30.2 million for 2019. Credit loss expense for 2020 reflected the new accounting standard for determining the allowance for credit losses and included a $42.5 million provision for loan losses which primarily reflected the change to life of loan current expected credit losses and the impact of the pandemic, a $0.7 million provision for off-balance sheet items and a $2.3 million provision for losses on accrued interest receivable for loans currently or previously modified under the CARES Act. A year ago, under the former accounting standard for determining the allowance for loan losses, the provision for loan losses was $30.2 million, which primarily reflected specific allowance allocations related to a troubled loan relationship. The 2019 provision for off-balance sheet items, included in other operating expenses, was $1.0 million.

Fourth quarter noninterest income increased to $8.8 million from $7.1 million for the third quarter, primarily due to a $1.0 million litigation settlement from a failed acquisition and $1.0 million from the disposition of a previously acquired loan. This increase was partially offset by a $0.6 million decrease in gain on sale of SBA loans. Gains on sales of SBA loans were $1.8 million for the fourth quarter of 2020, down from $2.3 million for the preceding quarter reflecting lower sale volumes. The volume of SBA loans sold for the 2020 fourth quarter and third quarter were $21.6 million and $29.3 million, respectively while trade premiums were 10.09% and 9.53%, respectively.

Noninterest income was $43.1 million for the full year 2020 compared with $27.6 million for 2019 primarily due to $15.7 million in gains on sales of securities realized in the second quarter of 2020 as a result of repositioning the securities portfolio to capture the high-level of unrealized gains arising from the very low rate environment.

During the fourth quarter of 2020, noninterest expense increased 3.3% to $30.9 million from $29.9 million for the third quarter primarily due to the $0.5 million change in other real estate owned and repossessed personal property due to a $0.2 million net charge in the quarter compared with a $0.3 million net credit in the previous quarter. Primarily as a result of the increase in revenues (noninterest income and net interest income), partially offset by higher noninterest expense, the efficiency ratio improved to 55.53% in the fourth quarter from 56.73% in the prior quarter.

Noninterest expense for the year ended December 31, 2020 was $119.1 million, reflecting a decrease of $6.9 million from the year ended December 31, 2019 stemming primarily from the capitalization of $3.1 million in costs for PPP originations, a $1.6 million decrease in repossessed personal property expense and a $1.5 million decrease in impairments on bank premises. The efficiency ratio for full year 2020 was 53.15% (58.63% excluding securities gains and deferred PPP loan origination costs) compared to 61.89% for the prior year.

Asset Quality
Loans and leases 30 to 89 days past due and still accruing were 0.19% of loans and leases at the end of the fourth quarter of 2020, compared with 0.20% at the end of the third quarter.

Special mention loans were $77.0 million at the end of the fourth quarter compared with $57.1 million at September 30, 2020. The quarter over quarter change reflects additions of $37.5 million and reductions or downgrades of $17.6 million. The December 31, 2020 balance of special mention loans included $49.1 million of loans adversely affected by the pandemic.

Classified loans were $140.2 million at December 31, 2020 compared with $106.2 million at the end of the third quarter. The quarter-over-quarter change reflects additions or downgrades of $45.4 million and reductions of $11.4 million. At December 31, 2020 classified loans included $54.0 million of loans adversely affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Nonperforming loans and leases were $83.0 million at the end of the fourth quarter of 2020, or 1.70% of loans and leases, compared with $64.3 million at the end of the third quarter, or 1.33% of the portfolio. The quarter-over-quarter change reflects additions or downgrades of $22.3 million and payoffs of $3.6 million. At December 31, 2020 nonperforming loans and leases included $33.0 million of loans and leases adversely affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Nonperforming assets were $85.4 million at the end of the fourth quarter of 2020, or 1.38% of total assets, compared with $65.4 million, or 1.07% of assets, at the end of the prior quarter.

Loans and leases modified under the CARES Act declined 73% to $155.6 million at December 31, 2020 from $578.6 million at September 30, 2020. Approximately 13.6%, or $21.1 million, of modified loans and leases are currently under deferred payment arrangements, with the remainder making payments that are less than the contractually required amount. Of the modified loan and lease portfolio, 20.1% were special mention and 15.7% were classified. In addition, 4.6% were on nonaccrual status at December 31, 2020.

Gross charge-offs for the fourth quarter of 2020 were $2.8 million compared with $2.2 million for the preceding quarter. Recoveries of previously charged-off loans for the fourth quarter of 2020 were $0.8 million compared with $1.7 million for the preceding quarter. As a result, there were net charge-offs of $1.9 million for the fourth quarter of 2020, compared with net charge-offs of $0.4 million for the preceding quarter. For the fourth quarter of 2020, net charge-offs represented an annualized 0.16% of average loans compared with 0.03% of average loans for the third quarter.

The allowance for credit losses was $90.4 million as of December 31, 2020 generating an allowance for credit losses to loans of 1.85% (1.97% excluding the PPP loans) compared with 1.79% (1.91% excluding the PPP loans) at the end of the prior quarter. The increase primarily reflected an increase in specific allowances for individually impaired loans resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic. Although macroeconomic assumptions continue to improve, the risk factors associated with the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the Bank’s loan portfolio continue to be considered in establishing the allowance for credit losses.

  • the ability of Hanmi Bank to make distributions to Hanmi Financial Corporation, which is restricted by certain factors, including Hanmi Bank’s retained earnings, net income, prior distributions made, and certain other financial tests;

  • the adequacy of our allowance for credit losses;

  • our credit quality and the effect of credit quality on our provision for loan losses and allowance for credit losses;

  • changes in the financial performance and/or condition of our borrowers and the ability of our borrowers to perform under the terms of their loans and other terms of credit agreements;

  • our ability to control expenses;

  • changes in securities markets; and

  • risks as it relates to cyber security against our information technology and those of our third-party providers and vendors.

Further, given its ongoing and dynamic nature, it is difficult to predict the full impact of the COVID-19 outbreak on our business. The extent of such impact will depend on future developments, which are highly uncertain, including when the coronavirus can be controlled and abated and whether the gradual reopening of businesses will result in a meaningful increase in economic activity. As the result of the COVID-19 pandemic and the related adverse local and national economic consequences, we could be subject to any of the following risks, any of which could have a material, adverse effect on our business, financial condition, liquidity, and results of operations:

  • demand for our products and services may decline;

  • if the economy is unable to substantially reopen, and high levels of unemployment continue for an extended period of time, loan delinquencies, problem assets, and foreclosures may increase;

  • collateral for loans, especially real estate, may decline in value, which could cause loan losses to increase;

  • our allowance for credit losses may have to be increased if borrowers experience financial difficulties;

  • a worsening of business and economic conditions or in the financial markets could result in an impairment of certain intangible assets, such as goodwill or our servicing assets;

  • the net worth and liquidity of loan guarantors may decline, impairing their ability to honor commitments to us;

  • as the result of the decline in the Federal Reserve Board’s target federal funds rate to near 0%, the yield on our assets may continue to decline to a greater extent than the decline in our cost of interest-bearing liabilities;

  • a material decrease in net income or a net loss over several quarters could result in a decrease in the rate of our quarterly cash dividend;

  • litigation, regulatory enforcement risk and reputation risk regarding our participation in the Paycheck Protection Program and the risk that the Small Business Administration may not fund some or all PPP loan guaranties;

  • our cyber security risks are increased as the result of an increase in the number of employees working remotely;

  • FDIC premiums may increase if the agency experiences additional resolution costs; and

  • the unanticipated loss or unavailability of key employees due to the outbreak, which could harm our ability to operate our business or execute our business strategy, especially as we may not be successful in finding and integrating suitable replacements.

In addition, we set forth certain risks in our reports filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, including, Item 1A of our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2019, our Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q, and Current Reports on Form 8-K that we will file hereafter, which could cause actual results to differ from those projected. We undertake no obligation to update such forward-looking statements except as required by law.
