"We finished the year with another quarter of loan growth, excluding PPP loans," said John W. Bordelon, Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer of the Company and the Bank. "We expect 2022 to be a year of strong loan growth with a stronger economy and our pending expansion into the Houston market. The previously announced acquisition of Friendswood Capital, Inc. ("Friendswood") and its subsidiary, Texan Bank, N.A., is proceeding as planned. The transaction is expected to close in the first quarter of 2022 upon receiving regulatory approvals and Friendswood shareholder approval."

"Our previously announced purchase and assumption agreement to sell our Vicksburg banking center to Delta Bank closed on Friday, January 21, 2022. Our teams worked diligently to ensure a smooth transition for the customers."

COVID-19 Response

After an increase in COVID-19 cases during the third quarter, Louisiana reinstituted it indoor mask mandate in August 2021. The mask mandate was lifted in October 2021 but was reinstituted in the city of New Orleans in January 2022.

Under the Small Business Administration's ("SBA") Paycheck Protection Program ("PPP"), the Company funded approximately 4,875 PPP loans totaling $388.7 million during 2020 and 2021, in aggregate. At December 31, 2021, the total recorded net investment in PPP loans was $43.6 million, of which approximately 177 loans with an aggregate outstanding balance of $5.0 million were for amounts of $150,000 or less.

To give immediate financial support to our customers, the Company began providing principal and/or interest payment relief options in March 2020. At December 31, 2021, $3.9 million, or less than 1% of total loans were under COVID-19 related deferral agreements. The level of COVID-19 related deferrals formerly totaled $558.8 million, or 28% of total loans, at June 30, 2020. Of the loans that have exited deferral agreements, $372.6 million, or 99%, were current and performing as of December 31, 2021.

Fourth Quarter 2021 Highlights

  • Net income totaled $10.2 million, down $4.8 million, or 32%, from the prior quarter primarily due to a $2.5 million decrease in interest income on PPP loans and the absence of life insurance benefit of $1.7 million recognized in the third quarter 2021.

  • Return on average assets, return on average equity and return on average tangible common equity were 1.38%, 11.65%, and 14.48%, respectively.

  • The Company recorded a $2.6 million reversal to the allowance for loan losses, compared to a $2.4 million allowance reversal in the prior quarter, primarily due to continued improvements in our assessment of the economic impact of the COVID-19 pandemic.

  • Loan income from the recognition of deferred PPP lender fees totaled $2.0 million, down $2.3 million from the prior quarter.

  • Noninterest income was down $1.8 million, or 34%, from the prior quarter primarily due to absence of income from bank-owned life insurance in the prior quarter. The Company recognized a life insurance benefit of $1.7 million following the death of an employee during the third quarter of 2021.

  • Loans totaled $1.8 billion at December 31, 2021, down $35.1 million, or 2%, from September 30, 2021. Excluding PPP loans, loan growth during the same comparative period was up $16.8 million, or 4% annualized.

  • PPP loans totaled $43.6 million at December 31, 2021, down $51.9 million, or 54%, from September 30, 2021.

  • The allowance for loan losses totaled $21.1 million, or 1.15% of total loans, at December 31, 2021. Excluding PPP loans, the ratio of allowance for loan losses to total loans was 1.17% at such date.

  • Nonperforming assets totaled $14.5 million, or 0.49% of total assets, down $1.1 million, or 7%, from September 30, 2021 primarily due to pay-downs on nonaccrual loans.

  • Preliminary Tier 1 leverage capital and total risk-based capital ratios were 9.77% and 15.95% at December 31, 2021, compared to 10.05% and 15.60% at September 30, 2021.

Loans

Loans totaled $1.8 billion at December 31, 2021, down $35.1 million, or 2%, from September 30, 2021. The following table summarizes the changes in the Company's loan portfolio from September 30, 2021 to December 31, 2021.

During the fourth quarter of 2021, construction and land loan growth was partially offset by pay-downs of commercial and industrial loans and residential mortgages. The change in commercial and industrial loans included a decrease in PPP loans of $51.9 million, or 54%, from September 30, 2021. Residential mortgages declined primarily due to refinances as borrowers sought to acquire lower interest rates.

Construction and land ("C&D") loan growth was spread across our New Orleans, Acadiana and Baton Rouge markets and was primarily driven by non-residential construction projects. At December 31, 2021, C&D loans within our Acadiana, New Orleans, and Northshore markets accounted for approximately 73% of our total construction and land portfolio.

Credit Quality and Allowance for Credit Losses

At December 31, 2021 and September 30, 2021, loans under interest and/or principal payment deferral agreements due to the COVID-19 crisis amounted to less than 1% of total loans.

Nonperforming assets ("NPAs"), totaled $14.5 million, or 0.49% of total assets at December 31, 2021, down $1.1 million, or 7%, from $15.5 million, or 0.56% of total assets, at September 30, 2021. The Company recorded net loan charge-offs of $412,000 during the fourth quarter of 2021, compared to net loan charge-offs of $153,000 for the third quarter of 2021.

The Company reversed $2.6 million of the allowance for loan losses in the fourth quarter of 2021 primarily due to continued improvements in our assessment of the economic impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. For the year ended December 31, 2021, we reversed a total of $10.2 million of the allowance for loan losses. At December 31, 2021, the allowance for loan losses totaled $21.1 million or 1.15% of total loans, compared to $24.1 million or 1.29% of total loans at September 30, 2021. Excluding PPP loans, the ratios of the allowance for loan losses to total loans were 1.17% and 1.36% at December 31, 2021 and September 30, 2021, respectively. Changes in expected losses consider various factors including the changing economic activity, potential mitigating effects of governmental stimulus, the duration of the health crisis, customer specific information impacting changes in risk ratings, projected delinquencies and the impact of industry-wide loan modification efforts, among other factors.

Deposits

Total deposits were $2.5 billion at December 31, 2021, up $170.1 million, or 7%, from September 30, 2021. The following table summarizes the changes in the Company's deposits from September 30, 2021 to December 31, 2021.

The average rate on interest-bearing deposits decreased 5 basis points from 0.27% for the third quarter of 2021 to 0.22% for the fourth quarter of 2021. At December 31, 2021, certificates of deposit maturing within the next 12 months totaled $251.6 million.

Net Interest Income

The net interest margin ("NIM") decreased 63 basis points from 4.16% for the third quarter of 2021 to 3.53% for the fourth quarter of 2021 primarily due to a decrease in the average yield on loans. Loan income was impacted for the fourth quarter of 2021 due to fewer PPP loan payoffs, which reduced deferred PPP lender fees recognized.

The average loan yield was 5.12% for the fourth quarter of 2021, down 48 basis points from the third quarter of 2021. Loan income from the recognition of deferred PPP lender fees totaled $2.0 million during the fourth quarter of 2021, down $2.3 million, or 54%, compared to the third quarter of 2021. As a result, PPP loans positively impacted the average loan yield by 29 basis points and the NIM by 24 basis points during the fourth quarter of 2021. During the third quarter of 2021, the average loan yield increased by 60 basis points and the NIM by 52 basis points due to the impact of PPP loans. Average PPP loans were $67.2 million for the fourth quarter of 2021, down $77.4 million, or 54%, from the third quarter of 2021. Unrecognized PPP lender fees totaled $1.3 million at December 31, 2021.

Loan accretion income from acquired loans totaled $485,000 for the fourth quarter of 2021, down $71,000, or 13%, compared to the third quarter of 2021.

The average rate paid on total interest-bearing deposits was 0.22% for the fourth quarter of 2021, down 5 basis points from the third quarter of 2021.

The following table summarizes the Company's average volume and rate of its interest-earning assets and interest-bearing liabilities for the periods indicated. Taxable equivalent ("TE") yields on investment securities have been calculated using a marginal tax rate of 21%.
