MidSouth Bancorp, Inc. (“MidSouth”) (MSL) today reported a quarterly net loss available to common shareholders of $23.1 million for the fourth quarter of 2018, compared to net loss available to common shareholders of $11.3 million reported for the fourth quarter of 2017 and $5.7 million in net loss available to common shareholders for the third quarter of 2018. The fourth quarter of 2018 included an after-tax charge of $3.9 million for regulatory remediation costs, a $11.4 million tax-related charge for the establishment of a valuation allowance to fully reserve against net deferred tax assets given the company’s cumulative pretax loss position. For comparison purposes, the third quarter of 2018 included a non-recurring after-tax expense of $4.3 million for regulatory remediation costs. Excluding these non-operating expenses, a loss of $0.66 per diluted share was reported for the fourth quarter of 2018, compared to diluted loss per common share of $0.08 for the third quarter of 2018 and $0.15 for the fourth quarter of 2017.

Jim McLemore, President and CEO, remarked, “This quarter, we took important actions to accelerate MidSouth's improvement in asset quality and to set the stage for an expected return to operating profitability for the full year 2019. We also concluded some very extensive remediation projects that contribute to a renewed culture of prudent risk management in our organization. Combined with strong capital, ample liquidity, and experienced banking professionals, MidSouth will continue our tradition of valuable service to our communities and clients.”

Asset Quality Improvements

Mr. McLemore continued, “The quarter’s improvement in asset quality was remarkable as classified assets as a percentage of capital at the bank was reduced to 29% from 45% last quarter, primarily as the result of the payoff of two of our largest non-performing loans. We also anticipate selling approximately $20 million of other classified loans and have marked these loans accordingly. On a pro-forma basis, after reflecting the completion of this sale, classified assets as a percentage of capital would be 17%.”

Strong Liquidity and Capital

“At the same time as we’ve significantly reduced risk and improved processes in the credit, operational and compliance areas of the bank, we’ve also built very strong liquidity levels and have maintained strong capital levels. Basic surplus, our primary measure of liquidity, stood at 23% at year-end 2018, which is almost double the level of 12% at year-end 2017. Tangible common equity as a percent of tangible assets was roughly 8.0% at year end.”

Corporate Governance

“In 2018, we made a very focused effort to improve our corporate governance through the addition of talented and experienced new board members as well as through improving our other governance processes. This quarter we took steps to significantly enhance out board, including the addition of Bill Grant as a new director and also seeking regulatory approval for John Heffern and Ryan Medo to join our board.”

Remediation Efforts

Mr. McLemore concluded, “At the end of the fourth quarter, we completed the last of the remediation projects and associated spend we identified in our second quarter 2018 earnings release. The spend for 2018 was $19.7 million, within our range of guidance at mid-year. We do not expect any significant remediation spend in 2019. Through the process of 2018’s significant remediation efforts and leadership changes, we have reduced risk and significantly improved all major processes of the bank. These include corporate governance, loan portfolio management, problem asset management, loan and deposit operations, technology platforms, risk management and compliance.”

Balance Sheet

Consolidated assets decreased 7.3% to $1.7 billion at December 31, 2018 from $1.9 billion at December 31, 2017 and 3.9% from $1.8 billion at September 30, 2018. Our stable core deposit base, which excludes time deposits, totaled $1.3 billion at December 31, 2018 and September 30, 2018 and accounted for 87.6% and 87.7% of deposits at December 31, 2018 and September 30, 2018, respectively. Net loans totaled $882 million at December 31, 2018, compared to $938 million at September 30, 2018 and $1.2 billion at December 31, 2017. In an effort to further reduce classified assets, classified loans totaling $20.4 million were transferred to held for sale during the fourth quarter of 2018.

MidSouth’s Tier 1 leverage capital ratio was 11.45% at December 31, 2018, compared to 12.53% at September 30, 2018. Tier 1 risk-based capital and total risk-based capital ratios were 17.79% and 19.04% at December 31, 2018, respectively, compared to 19.09% and 20.35% at September 30, 2018, respectively. Tier 1 common equity to total risk-weighted assets at December 31, 2018 was 12.20%, compared to 13.78% at September 30, 2018. Tangible common equity totaled $135.6 million at December 31, 2018, compared to $155.6 million at September 30, 2018. Tangible book value per share at December 31, 2018 was $8.20 compared to $9.35 at September 30, 2018.

Asset Quality

Nonperforming assets totaled $30.5 million at December 31, 2018, including $20.4 million of loans transferred to held for sale, a decrease of $22.0 million compared to $52.5 million reported at September 30, 2018. The decrease is primarily attributable to the payoffs/paydowns of $9.8 million of non-accrual loans and the charge-off of $14.5 million of non-accrual loans. Allowance coverage for nonperforming loans increased to 195.40% at December 31, 2018, compared to 47.49% at September 30, 2018. The ALLL/total loans ratio was 1.94% at December 31, 2018 and 2.54% at September 30, 2018. The ratio of annualized net charge-offs to total loans increased to 8.45% for the three months ended December 31, 2018 compared to 1.40% for the three months ended September 30, 2018 due to the payoffs of two large credits and anticipated loan sale.

Total nonperforming assets to total loans plus ORE and other assets repossessed was 3.39% at December 31, 2018 compared to 5.45% at September 30, 2018. Loans classified as troubled debt restructurings, accruing (“TDRs, accruing”) totaled $1.3 million at December 31, 2018 compared to $896,000 at September 30, 2018. Also included in nonperforming assets at December 31, 2018 was $20.4 million of classified loans transferred to held for sale. Total classified assets, including ORE, were $51.2 million at December 31, 2018 compared to $91.6 million at September 30, 2018. The balance of classified loans decreased as a result of principal reductions through payoffs and/or pay-downs in the amount $11.8 million in addition to charge-offs of $19.2 million at December 31, 2018. As a part of the anticipated loan sale, there were classified loans transferred to loans held for sale at fair value, resulting in $11.9 million in charge-offs which also contributed to the decline in classified assets. These decreases were partially offset by downgrades to classified loans of $4.5 million during the quarter. The classified to capital ratio at MidSouth Bank was 29% at December 31, 2018 versus 45% at September 30, 2018.

Fourth Quarter 2018 vs. Third Quarter 2018 Earnings Comparison

MidSouth reported a net loss available to common shareholders of $23.1 million for the three months ended December 31, 2018, compared to net loss available to common shareholders of $5.7 million for the three months ended September 30, 2018. Revenues from consolidated operations increased $438,000 in sequential-quarter comparison from $21.6 million to $22.0 million. Net interest income increased $777,000 primarily due to the acceleration of $726,000 in accretion income from the PSB Financial Corporation acquisition after determination that it would be more conservative to remove the nominal discount remaining from these acquired loans that undergo quarterly cash flow re-estimations and instead include these loans with the quarterly allowance for loan losses calculation. Finally, noninterest income decreased $339,000 in sequential-quarter comparison.

The fourth quarter of 2018 included non-operating expenses totaling $5.0 million for regulatory remediation costs. The third quarter of 2018 included a non-recurring charge of $5.5 million of regulatory remediation costs. Excluding these non-operating expenses, noninterest expense increased $1.7 million in sequential-quarter comparison and consisted primarily of a $1.1 million increase in salaries and benefits given continued investment in staffing for compliance and an $800,000 increase in legal and professional fees offset by a $100,000 decline in marketing and FDIC premiums. The increase in legal and professional fees is primarily due to increased outsourcing expenses to enhance risk management as well as increased legal fees to resolve credit quality issues. The provision for loan losses increased $7.7 million in sequential-quarter comparison. A $11.4 million tax-related charge was recorded during the fourth quarter of 2018 associated with the establishment of a valuation reserve against the net deferred tax assets. Excluding this adjustment, we recorded an income tax expense of $7.6 million for the fourth quarter of 2018, compared to an income tax benefit of $1.4 million for the third quarter of 2018.

Dividends on the Series B Preferred Stock issued to the U.S. Treasury as a result of our participation in the Small Business Lending Fund totaled $720,000 for the fourth quarter of 2018 based on a dividend rate of 9%, unchanged from $720,000 for the third quarter of 2018. Dividends on the Series C Preferred Stock issued with the December 28, 2012 acquisition of PSB Financial Corporation totaled $90,000 for the three months ended December 31, 2018 and September 30, 2018.

Fully taxable-equivalent (“FTE”) net interest income increased $780,000 in sequential-quarter comparison, primarily due to an increase in interest income on investment securities of $801,000. Interest income on loans was flat at $14.6 million despite a $76.3 million decline in average balances as loan yields increased 44 bps from 5.72% to 6.16%. Higher yields reflected increased loan rates in addition to management’s recognition of the remaining PSB accretion discounts into income. Excluding these purchase accounting adjustments, the loan yield increased 13 bps, from 5.72% to 5.85% during the same period. The average yield on investment securities increased 60 basis points, from 2.56% to 3.16% as a result of opportunistic purchases at higher yields which increased average balances by $28.1 million. The average yield on total earning assets increased 48 bps for the same period, from 4.40% to 4.88%, respectively. The FTE net interest margin increased 42 bps in sequential-quarter comparison, from 3.93% for the third quarter of 2018 to 4.35% for the fourth quarter of 2018. Excluding purchase accounting adjustments, the FTE net interest margin increased 11 bps, from 3.93% for the third quarter of 2018 to 4.04% for the fourth quarter of 2018.

Fourth Quarter 2018 vs. Fourth Quarter 2017 Earnings Comparison

MidSouth reported a net loss available to common shareholders of $23.1 million for the three months ended December 31, 2018, compared to net loss available to common shareholders of $11.3 million for the three months ended December 31, 2017. Revenues from consolidated operations decreased $3.5 million in quarterly comparison, from $25.5 million for the three months ended December 31, 2017 to $22.0 million for the three months ended December 31, 2018. Net interest income decreased $2.2 million in quarterly comparison, resulting from a $1.6 million decrease in interest income primarily driven by lower loan levels, in addition to higher interest expense of $0.6 million reflecting the impact of higher interest rates, partially offset by $726,000 acceleration of accretion income from the PSB acquisition. Operating noninterest income decreased $1.3 million in quarterly comparison.

Excluding non-operating expenses of $5.0 million of remediation costs for the fourth quarter of 2018 and $7.8 million for the fourth quarter of 2017, which included $1.8 million of remediation costs, $6.0 million of expenses for loans held for sale, noninterest expenses increased $1.8 million in quarterly comparison and consisted primarily of a $1.2 million increase in salaries and employee benefits costs and a $2.0 million increase in legal and professional fees offset by declines in other noninterest expenses. The provision for loan losses increased $1.4 million in quarterly comparison, from $10.6 million for the three months ended December 31, 2017 to $12.0 million for the three months ended December 31, 2018. Excluding the $11.4 million tax-related charge recorded during the fourth quarter of 2018 associated with the establishment of a valuation reserve against the net deferred tax assets and the $3.6 million tax-related charge recorded in connection with the Tax Act during the fourth quarter of 2017, we recorded an income tax expense of $7.6 million for the fourth quarter of 2018, compared to income tax expense of $4.1 for the fourth quarter of 2017.

Dividends on preferred stock totaled $810,000 for the three months ended December 31, 2018 and for the three months ended December 31, 2017.

Dividends on the Series C Preferred Stock totaled $90,000 for the three months ended December 31, 2018 and December 31, 2017.

FTE net interest income decreased $2.2 million in prior year quarterly comparison. Interest income on loans decreased $3.5 million primarily due to a $294.3 million decline in average loans given ongoing efforts to reduce problem loans and slower loan originations due to efforts to shore up operational issues. Excluding the impact of the purchase accounting adjustment of $726,000, average loan yields increased 8 basis points in prior year quarterly comparison, from 5.77% to 5.85%.

Investment securities totaled $475.5 million, or 27.2% of total assets at December 31, 2018, versus $390.2 million, or 20.8% of total assets at December 31, 2017. The investment portfolio had an effective duration of 3.0 years and a net unrealized loss of $6.2 million at December 31, 2018. FTE interest income on investments increased $696,000 in prior year quarterly comparison.

The average yield on all earning assets increased 9 basis points in prior year quarterly comparison, from 4.79% for the fourth quarter of 2017 to 4.88% for the fourth quarter of 2018. Excluding the impact of purchase accounting adjustments, the average yield on total earning assets decreased 69 basis points, from 4.72% to 4.17% for the three-month periods ended December 31, 2017 and 2018, respectively, primarily due to the $294.3 million decline in average loans.

Interest expense increased $614,000 in prior year quarterly comparison primarily due to a $573,000 increase in interest expense on deposits and a $77,000 increase in interest expense on junior subordinated debt, which were partially offset by a $49,000 decrease in interest expense on repurchase agreements. Excluding purchase accounting adjustments on acquired certificates of deposit and FHLB borrowings, the average rate paid on interest-bearing liabilities was 0.52% for the three months ended December 31, 2018 and 0.47% for the three months ended December 31, 2017.

As a result of these changes in volume and yield on earning assets and interest-bearing liabilities, the FTE net interest margin decreased 12 basis points, from 4.47% for the fourth quarter of 2017 to 4.35% for the fourth quarter of 2018.

2018 vs 2017 Earnings Comparison

MidSouth reported a net loss available to common shareholders of $30.8 million for the year ended December 31, 2018, compared to net loss available to common shareholders of $15.0 million for the year ended December 31, 2017. 2017 net earnings included $347,000 of gain on sales of securities and $744,000 of gain on sale of branches.

Excluding non-operating expenses of $21.4 million for the year ended December 31, 2018 and $11.5 million for the year ended December 31, 2017, noninterest expenses increased $2.0 million in year-over-year comparison primarily due to increases in legal and professional fees associated with working down our problem assets. The provision for loan losses decreased $13.5 million in year-over-year comparison, from $30.2 million for the year ended December 31, 2017 to $16.7 million for the year ended December 31, 2018 . Excluding the $3.6 million charge recorded in connection with the Tax Act during the fourth quarter of 2017, and the $11.4 million charge recorded in conjunction with the establishment of a valuation reserve against the net deferred tax asset in 2018, a $6.2 million income tax benefit was reported for the year ended December 31, 2017, compared to income tax benefit of $5.4 million for the year ended December 31, 2018.

In year-to-date comparison, FTE net interest income decreased $7.1 million primarily due to a $8.2 million decrease in interest income on loans and a $1.5 million increase in interest expense, offset by increased income from interest bearing deposits at other banks.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

This press release, including the accompanying financial statement tables, contains financial information determined by methods other than in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles, or GAAP. This financial information includes certain operating performance measures, which exclude charges that are not considered part of recurring operations. Non-GAAP measures in this press release include, but are not limited to, descriptions such as “operating net income,” “operating earnings (loss) per share,” “tangible book value per common share,” “operating return on average common equity,” “operating return on average assets,” and “operating efficiency ratio.” In addition, this press release, consistent with SEC Industry Guide 3, presents total revenue, net interest income, net interest margin, and efficiency ratios on a fully taxable equivalent (“FTE”) basis, and ratios on an annualized basis. The FTE basis adjusts for the tax-favored status of net interest income from certain loans and investments using a federal tax rate of 21% for all periods beginning on or after January 1, 2018 and 35% for all periods prior to January 1, 2018, as well as state income taxes, where applicable, to increase tax-exempt interest income to a taxable-equivalent basis. MidSouth believes this measure to be the preferred industry measurement of net interest income and it enhances comparability of net interest income arising from taxable and tax-exempt sources.

We use non-GAAP measures because we believe they are useful for evaluating our financial condition and performance over periods of time, as well as in managing and evaluating our business and in discussions about our performance. We also believe these non-GAAP financial measures provide users of our financial information with a meaningful measure for assessing our financial condition as well as comparison to financial results for prior periods. These measures should be viewed in addition to, and not as an alternative to or substitute for, measures determined in accordance with GAAP, and are not necessarily comparable to non-GAAP measures that may be presented by other companies. To the extent applicable, reconciliations of these non-GAAP measures to the most directly comparable measures as reported in accordance with GAAP are included with the accompanying financial statement tables.
