GRAND RAPIDS, Mich., July 28, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Independent Bank Corporation (NASDAQ: IBCP) reported second quarter 2020 net income of $14.8 million, or $0.67 per diluted share, versus net income of $10.7 million, or $0.46 per diluted share, in the prior-year period. For the six months ended June 30, 2020, the Company reported net income of $19.6 million, or $0.88 per diluted share, compared to net income of $20.1 million, or $0.85 per diluted share, in the prior-year period. The increase in second quarter 2020 earnings as compared to 2019 primarily reflects an increase in non-interest income that was partially offset by a decline in net interest income and increases in the provision for loan losses, non-interest expense and income tax expense. The slight decline in year-to-date 2020 earnings as compared to 2019 primarily reflects a decline in net interest income and increases in the provision for loan losses and non-interest expense that were partially offset by an increase in non-interest income and a decrease in income tax expense.

Before discussing the 2020 financial results in greater detail, the following is an update on the impact to our organization of the COVID-19 pandemic, which continues to cause significant hardship for many of our customers and communities in a variety of ways. That is especially true for those who have been infected by the virus and suffered through the health issues that it has caused. Our thoughts are with those who have been directly impacted, and we also extend our appreciation to those who have aided and supported them.

The Company continues to respond to the challenges of the current environment. Our response was initially formulated during the month of February 2020 as we prepared our infrastructure to allow the majority of our associates to work remotely. In March 2020 we activated our Business Continuity Plan to protect our customers, employees and business. We will continue to take the necessary steps to serve our communities while doing our part to minimize the spread of COVID-19. The following is a brief description of our current initiatives:

  • Customer Safety and Service Levels – From mid-March to mid-June we limited our branch lobbies to appointment only and kept drive-through windows open. In mid-June our bank branch lobbies fully reopened. With the ability to use drive through service, ATMs or our electronic banking solutions there was minimal disruption to customers. In addition, our flexible operating network allowed us to efficiently redeploy our associates, as necessary, to high volume areas to fulfill customer requests into our call center, requests for consumer and commercial loan payment relief and mortgage financing requests.

  • Employee Safety – For employees that are in our bank branches servicing our customers, we have expanded sick and vacation time. All non-branch employees either have the option or are required to work remotely. We currently have approximately 40% of our total staff working remotely every day. We have installed “customer friendly” shields throughout our delivery network and have implemented a variety of other protective processes to put both customers and staff at ease. We continue to comply with the Governor of Michigan’s “Safe at Home” executive orders and “MI Safe Start Plan” as they apply to our business.

  • Loan Forbearances – We have forbearance programs in place to proactively work with our customers who have experienced financial difficulty due to the COVID-19 pandemic. As of June 30, 2020 we had active forbearance agreements with 259 commercial customers with $210.5 million in loans, 668 retail (mortgage and installment loan) customers with $88.7 million in loans, and 773 customers with $114.8 million within our mortgage loans sold and serviced for others. These dollar amounts represent 15.4%, 5.9% and 4.2% of the related total loan portfolio balances. As of July 23, 2020 the active forbearance agreements had changed as follows: 260 commercial customers with $211.8 million in loans, 524 retail customers with $71.0 million in loans, and 639 customers with $98.2 million within our mortgage loans sold and serviced for others. The level of these loans are down after peaking in mid-June 2020, as many customers economic situations have improved, allowing them to pay their loans current. The forbearance terms are flexible enough to meet the specific needs of each customer, while protecting the safety and soundness of the Company.

  • U.S. Small Business Administration (“SBA”) Payroll Protection Program (“PPP”) – Our response, and focus on this vital program, shows our commitment to the communities we serve. We built an effective process to manage the high volume of applications that we received and processed. Customer demand for this program was extraordinary. As of June 30, 2020, we had 2,012 PPP loans outstanding with a total balance of $259.4 million. The average balance of PPP loans in the second quarter of 2020 was $191.1 million with an average yield of 3.05% (including the accretion of approximately $1.0 million of net fees). The PPP loan portfolio reduced the average yield on interest-earning assets by an estimated 0.04% in the second quarter of 2020. At June 30, 2020, there was $7.7 million of remaining unaccreted net fees related to PPP loans. These net fees are expected to be accreted into interest income over the next 20 months and the pace of such accretion will depend on payment activity (including loan forgiveness) within the PPP loan portfolio. The PPP has been extended to August 8, 2020. We have received approximately 35 forgiveness applications that will be submitted once the SBA Forgiveness portal is activated.

  • Federal Reserve Main Street Lending Program (“MSLP”) – We submitted an application and were approved as a MSLP lender. This program is designed to support small and medium-sized businesses that were in sound financial condition before the COVID-19 pandemic. U.S. businesses may be eligible for MSLP loans if they meet either of the following conditions: (1) the business has 15,000 employees or fewer; or (2) the business had 2019 revenues of $5 billion or less. As of July 14, 2020 we had received three loan applications under the MSLP.

Significant items impacting comparable quarterly and year to date 2020 and 2019 results include the following:

  • Changes in the fair value due to price of capitalized mortgage loan servicing rights (the “MSR Changes”) of a negative $2.9 million ($0.10 per diluted share, after taxes) and a negative $8.9 million ($0.31 per diluted share, after taxes) for the three- and six-months ended June 30, 2020, respectively, as compared to a negative $2.7 million ($0.09 per diluted share, after taxes) and a negative $4.9 million ($0.16 per diluted share, after taxes) for the three- and six-months ended June 30, 2019, respectively.

  • Approximately $0.76 million ($0.03 per diluted share, after taxes) and $0.82 million ($0.03 per diluted share, after taxes) of expenses related to a pending data processing conversion and bank branch closures (as described further below under “Operating Results”) for the three- and six-months ended June 30, 2020, respectively

Second quarter 2020 highlights include:

  • Increases in net income and diluted earnings per share of 37.7% and 45.7%, respectively, compared to 2019;

  • Return on average assets and return on average equity of 1.54% and 17.39%, respectively;

  • Net gains on mortgage loans of $17.6 million (up 310.1% over 2019) and total mortgage loan origination volume of $470.6 million;

  • Total portfolio loan net growth of $148.5 million;

  • Deposit net growth of $401.6 million;

  • The issuance of $40.0 million of subordinated debt in May 2020;

  • Continued strong asset quality metrics; and

  • The payment of a 20 cent per share dividend on common stock on May 15, 2020.

William B. (“Brad”) Kessel, the President and Chief Executive Officer of Independent Bank Corporation, commented: “We are pleased to report a very strong financial performance in the second quarter of 2020 despite the many challenges brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic. Our associates did an amazing job during the quarter! We closed nearly one-half billion dollars of mortgage loans, helping our customers buy new homes or refinance existing mortgage loans. We closed over $250 million of PPP loans, helping our customers keep their employees on the payroll and their businesses operating. We actively administered over 1,700 loan forbearance plans to help our business and retail customers who have been adversely impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. We continued to effectively operate our Business Continuity Plan to safely serve our customers and protect our employees. Finally, we maintained solid asset quality metrics during the second quarter of 2020. As we look ahead to the last half of 2020 and beyond, we are mindful of the ongoing challenges from the COVID-19 pandemic, but we are confident of our continued ability to effectively respond to these challenges and remain optimistic about our future.”

Operating Results

The Company’s net interest income totaled $30.5 million during the second quarter of 2020, a decrease of $0.3 million, or 1.0% from the year-ago period, but up $0.3 million, or 0.9%, from the first quarter of 2020. The Company’s tax equivalent net interest income as a percent of average interest-earning assets (the “net interest margin”) was 3.36% during the second quarter of 2020, compared to 3.87% in the year-ago period, and 3.63% in the first quarter of 2020. The year-over-year quarterly decrease in net interest income is due to a decline in the net interest margin that was partially offset by an increase in average interest-earning assets. Average interest-earning assets were $3.66 billion in the second quarter of 2020, compared to $3.19 billion in the year ago quarter and $3.35 billion in the first quarter of 2020.

For the first six months of 2020, net interest income totaled $60.7 million, a decrease of $0.3 million, or 0.6% from the first half of 2019. The Company’s net interest margin for the first six months of 2020 was 3.49% compared to 3.88% in 2019. The decrease in net interest income for the first six months of 2020 compared to 2019 is also due to a decline in the net interest margin that was partially offset by an increase in average interest-earning assets.

Due to the economic impact of COVID-19, the Federal Reserve has taken a variety of actions to stimulate the economy, including significantly lowering short-term interest rates. These actions have placed continued pressure on the Company’s net interest margin.

Non-interest income totaled $20.4 million and $31.4 million, respectively, for the second quarter and first six months of 2020, compared to $9.9 million and $19.9 million in the respective comparable year ago periods. These changes were primarily due to variances in mortgage banking related revenues (net gains on mortgage loans and mortgage loan servicing, net).

Net gains on mortgage loans in the second quarters of 2020 and 2019, were approximately $17.6 million and $4.3 million, respectively. For the first six months of 2020, net gains on mortgage loans totaled $26.5 million compared to $7.9 million in 2019. The increase in net gains on mortgage loans was primarily due to an increase in mortgage loan sales volume in 2020, improved profit margins on mortgage loan sales, and fair value adjustments on the mortgage loan pipeline.

Mortgage loan servicing, net, generated a loss of $3.0 million and $1.9 million in the second quarters of 2020 and 2019, respectively. For the first six months of 2020 and 2019, mortgage loan servicing, net, generated a loss of $8.3 million and $3.1 million, respectively. The significant variances in mortgage loan servicing, net are primarily due to changes in the fair value of capitalized mortgage loan servicing rights associated with changes in mortgage loan interest rates and expected future prepayment levels. Mortgage loan servicing, net activity is summarized in the following table:

Non-interest expenses totaled $27.3 million in the second quarter of 2020, compared to $26.6 million in the year-ago period. For the first six months of 2020, non-interest expenses totaled $56.1 million versus $54.6 million in 2019. These year-over-year increases in non-interest expense are primarily due to increases in compensation, loan and collection expense and legal and professional fees. The increase in compensation is due in part to $0.4 million in bonuses paid during the second quarter of 2020 to front-line personnel due to their extraordinary efforts during the COVID-19 pandemic. In addition, the second quarter of 2020 includes $0.3 million of expenses related to the Company’s core data processing conversion that is in process (this conversion is expected to be completed in April 2021) and $0.4 million of expenses (primarily write-downs of fixed assets and leases) related to the closures of six bank branch offices that are expected to occur on July 31, 2020.

The Company recorded an income tax expense of $3.5 million and $4.5 million in the second quarter and first six months of 2020, respectively. This compares to an income tax expense of $2.7 million and $4.9 million in the second quarter and first six months of 2019, respectively. The changes in income tax expense reflect changes in pre-tax earnings in 2020 relative to 2019.

(1) Excludes loans that are classified as “troubled debt restructured” that are still performing.

Non-performing loans have increased $2.8 million from December 31, 2019 due primarily to an increase in non-performing commercial loans. This increase principally reflects one specific loan relationship. This loan relationship was in watch credit status at December 31, 2019, moved into non-accrual in the first quarter of 2020 and was charged down by $4.0 million in the second quarter of 2020, to a remaining balance of $2.9 million. Approximately $2.6 million of this remaining loan balance was paid on July 21, 2020 from the auction of assets securing the loan and $0.3 million is fully reserved with collection efforts continuing. Other real estate and repossessed assets totaled $1.6 million at June 30, 2020, compared to $1.9 million at December 31, 2019.

The provision for loan losses was an expense of $5.2 million and $0.7 million in the second quarters of 2020 and 2019, respectively. The provision for loan losses was an expense of $11.9 million and $1.3 million in the first six months of 2020 and 2019, respectively. The level of the provision for loan losses in each period reflects the Company’s overall assessment of the allowance for loan losses, taking into consideration factors such as loan growth, loan mix, levels of non-performing and classified loans and loan net charge-offs. In addition, the higher year-to-date provision for loan losses includes an $8.7 million (or 98.2%) increase in the qualitative/subjective portion of the allowance for loan losses. This increase principally reflects the unique challenges and economic uncertainty resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic and the potential impact on the loan portfolio. The Company recorded loan net charge-offs of $3.183 million and $0.003 million in the second quarters of 2020 and 2019, respectively. For the first six months of 2020 and 2019, the Company recorded loan net charge-offs of $3.557 million and $0.301 million, respectively. At June 30, 2020, the allowance for loan losses totaled $34.5 million, or 1.20% of total portfolio loans, compared to $26.1 million, or 0.96% of total portfolio loans, at December 31, 2019. Excluding PPP loans and the remaining Traverse City State Bank acquired loan balances, the allowance for loan losses was equal to 1.38% of portfolio loans at June 30, 2020.

Balance Sheet, Liquidity and Capital

Total assets were $4.04 billion at June 30, 2020, an increase of $478.6 million from December 31, 2019. Loans, excluding loans held for sale, were $2.87 billion at June 30, 2020, compared to $2.73 billion at December 31, 2019. Deposits totaled $3.49 billion at June 30, 2020, an increase of $448.4 million from December 31, 2019. This increase is primarily due to growth in non-interest bearing checking, savings and interest-bearing checking and reciprocal deposit account balances.

Cash and cash equivalents totaled $55.8 million at June 30, 2020, versus $65.3 million at December 31, 2019. Securities available for sale totaled $856.3 million at June 30, 2020, versus $518.4 million at December 31, 2019. The significant increase in securities available for sale is due to the deployment of funds generated from the growth in deposits.

In May 2020, the Company issued $40.0 million of subordinated notes with a ten year maturity, a five year call option and an initial coupon interest rate (fixed for the first five years) of 5.95%.

Total shareholders’ equity was $355.1 million at June 30, 2020, or 8.78% of total assets. Tangible common equity totaled $322.0 million at June 30, 2020, or $14.72 per share. The Company’s wholly owned subsidiary, Independent Bank, remains significantly above “well capitalized” for regulatory purposes with the following ratios:

Share Repurchase Plan

As previously announced, on December 17, 2019, the Board of Directors of the Company authorized the 2020 share repurchase plan. Under the terms of the 2020 share repurchase plan, the Company is authorized to buy back up to 1,120,000 shares, or approximately 5% of its outstanding common stock. The repurchase plan is authorized to last through December 31, 2020. During the first quarter of 2020, the Company repurchased 678,929 shares at a weighted average price of $20.30 per share. Due primarily to the economic uncertainty brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic, share repurchase activity ceased on March 16, 2020, and is on hold at this time.

Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures
