Northrim BanCorp Reports First Quarter Profits of $1.0 Million, or $0.16 Per Diluted Share

ANCHORAGE, Alaska, April 27, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Northrim BanCorp, Inc. (NRIM) (“Northrim” or the "Company") today reported net income of $1.03 million, or $0.16 per diluted share, in the first quarter of 2020, compared to $4.58 million, or $0.69 per diluted share, in the fourth quarter of 2019, and $4.31 million, or $0.62 per diluted share, in the first quarter a year ago.

“Our first quarter was highlighted by both higher production in the mortgage banking division and loan and deposit growth in the community banking segment. While our asset quality metrics at quarter end remain strong, we are being active in our approach to the COVID-19 pandemic and the sharp decline in oil prices during the quarter and their anticipated future impact on the Alaska economy. Consequently, we booked a $2.1 million loan loss provision in the first quarter, which is significantly higher than the provisions booked for the last several quarters,” said Joe Schierhorn, President and CEO.

“Northrim has implemented several new support efforts to assist our customers, employees and our communities with their financial needs during this challenging time,” continued Schierhorn. “Early in March we established an incident response team comprised of executive and senior managers who are directing operations during the COVID-19 pandemic to protect the safety of customers and employees. We began limiting lobby access at branches to help reduce the spread of COVID-19 following CDC guidelines. Nearly 75% of our workforce are able to work remotely, and all branch activity has been business as usual from an operational standpoint. Our loan officers reached out to borrowers that have been affected by declining economic activity, offering assistance with payment deferrals and interest only payment options for those in need.”

“We have seen a significant number of applications since implementing the Paycheck Protection Program ("PPP") offered through the Small Business Administration (SBA) in early April,” said Jed Ballard, Chief Financial Officer. “We have offered access to the program to both existing customers and new customers. Additionally, we are actively monitoring business lines-of-credit usage daily, and have not seen significant changes in those balances. We will continue to assist businesses in Alaska as we navigate through this unprecedented time.”

COVID-19 Issues:

  • Industry Exposure: Northrim has identified various industries that may be adversely impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic and a significant decline in oil prices. Though the industries affected may change through the progression of the pandemic, the following sectors, with Northrim Bank's exposure as a percent of the total loan portfolio as of March 31, 2020, are being impacted: Tourism (6%), Oil and Gas (8%), Aviation (non-tourism) (5%), Healthcare (4%), Accommodations (3%), Retail (2%) and Restaurants (2%).
  • Loan Accommodations: The Company has implemented several forms of assistance to help our customers in the event that they experience financial hardship as a result of COVID-19 in addition to our participation in PPP lending. These accommodations include interest only and deferral options on loan payments, as well as the waiver of various fees related to loans, deposits and other services. As of March 31, 2020, the Company has not made a material number of loan accommodations and only began to see requests for changes near the end of the quarter. The SBA PPP loan program has provided some relief on requests to modify loans.
  • Loan Loss Reserve: Although several of the Company’s asset quality metrics improved over the quarter, management determined it is appropriate to increase its loan loss reserves through the addition of $2.1 million in loan loss provisions for the quarter ended March 31, 2020. This compares to a benefit to the provision for loan losses of $150,000 during the previous quarter and a $750,000 provision for loan losses in the first quarter a year ago. The increased provision includes coverage for net loan charge-offs of $131,000 during the first quarter of 2020, as well as provisions taken due to the growth in the loan portfolio, an increase in specific impairment related to one relationship, and changes in risks and a slowing Alaska economy.
  • IT Changes: To protect the well-being of our staff and customers, Northrim has dedicated resources for a majority of employees to work from home. To facilitate the move, we allocated excess computers and VOIP system phones to staff resulting in no significant increase in data processing expenses.
  • Growth and Paycheck Protection Program:
    • Northrim’s asset base increased during the quarter ended March 31, 2020, due primarily to normal loan growth, much of which related to the funding of loans that were in the pipeline as of December 31, 2019.
    • Through April 16, 2020 when all of the funds allocated to the PPP through the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act were spoken for, the Company received SBA approval to originate approximately 1,300 loans totaling $309 million in PPP loans, and we have approximately 1,100 loans totaling $89 million in the PPP pipeline.
    • The Company has been approved for, and intends to utilize the Federal Reserve Bank's newly created Paycheck Protection Program Liquidity Facility to fund PPP loans.
  • Capital Management: At March 31, 2020, the Company’s tangible common equity to tangible assets* ratio was 10.84% and the Bank’s capital was well in excess of all regulatory requirements. As of March 31, 2020, the Company had suspended its previously announced stock repurchasing activity.

First Quarter 2020 Highlights:

  • Total revenue, which includes net interest income plus other operating income, decreased 5% to $22.1 million during the first quarter of 2020, compared to $23.3 million in the first quarter a year ago, and decreased 15% compared to $26.1 million in the preceding quarter.
  • Net interest income in the first quarter of 2020 was $15.7 million, down from $15.8 million in the first quarter a year ago, and $16.4 million in the preceding quarter.
  • Net interest margin on a tax equivalent basis (“NIMTE”)* was 4.37% in the first quarter of 2020, a 52-basis point contraction compared to the first quarter a year ago, and a 15-basis point contraction compared to the preceding quarter.
  • Net loans increased 10% to $1.06 billion at March 31, 2020, compared to $962.1 million a year earlier, and increased 4% compared to $1.02 billion at December 31, 2019.
  • Total deposits increased 14% to $1.40 billion at March 31, 2020, compared to $1.23 billion a year earlier, and increased 2% compared to $1.37 billion at December 31, 2019.
  • The Company repurchased 192,709 shares of its common stock in the first quarter of 2020 at an average price of $32.74, leaving 134,291 shares available under the previously announced repurchase authorization. As of March 31, 2020, the Company had suspended all stock repurchasing activity.
  • The Company's wholly owned subsidiary, Residential Mortgage, LLC, had higher production during the quarter ended March 31, 2020 as compared to the same period in 2019, however the pricing on the secondary market declined significantly at the end of the quarter as a result of the over supply of mortgages for sale and other factors, resulting in lower yields and decreases in the valuation of mortgage loan commitments.
  • The decrease in interest rates resulted in a decrease of the Bank's mortgage servicing rights by $930 thousand for the quarter ended March 31, 2020, compared to a decrease of $321 thousand for the preceding quarter and $674 thousand for the first quarter a year ago.

Alaska Economic Update

(Note:sources for information included in this section are included on page 10.)

The Alaska economy continued positive improvements throughout 2019 and into the beginning of 2020. The most recent macro-economic indicators show a healthy economy that was growing and adding jobs. However, a new paradigm arose from the COVID-19 virus that is expected to bring an end to positive growth. National and local economies have been significantly altered from government rules implemented to help slow the spread of the virus around the country. These impacts have only begun to take effect in the first quarter of the year.

The State Department of Labor reported growth of 1,300 jobs in February of 2020 compared to February of 2019. This is an increase of 0.4% year-over-year. October of 2018 was the first month of year-over-year increase in employment since September of 2015. After 37 months of year-over-year declines, Alaska had 14 consecutive months of year-over-year job increases prior to the impacts from COVID-19.

Oil and Gas led the February 2020 year-over-year growth with a positive 500 jobs for a 5% growth rate. Health Care also grew by 500 jobs over the prior year, which is an increase of 1.3% for the larger direct employment sector. The Construction industry has grown by 400 jobs or 2.9% during the same 12 month period. Tourism helped boost Leisure & Hospitality employment by 300 jobs or 1%.

The largest decline was 500 government jobs. State jobs decreased by 400, local government jobs declined by 200, while federal government jobs grew by 100. This was primarily a response to state budget cuts. The other two major sectors to shrink were Manufacturing (primarily seafood processing) down 300 jobs or -2.5% and Information Services down 200 jobs or -3.7%.

Alaska’s seasonally adjusted gross state product (“GSP”) was $55.4 billion in the third quarter of 2019, according to the U.S. Bureau of Economic Analysis (“BEA”) in a report released on January 10, 2020. Alaska’s GSP increased 1.8% annualized in the first quarter of 2019, 4.1% in the second quarter, and 2.4% in the third quarter. Alaska’s real GSP increased by 0.7% in 2018.

Alaska’s personal income grew 3.7% in 2019 according to a report by the BEA. Total income from all sources in Alaska grew from $43.8 billion in 2018 to $45.4 billion in 2019. The increase in 2019 was mostly driven by an improvement in wages. Personal income from wages rose $1.03 billion, government transfer receipts were up $406 million and dividends, interest and rents increased by $177 million in 2019.

“The strong gains in gross state product and personal income have primarily been a result of billions of dollars in investment by the oil and gas sector and record years in tourism,” stated Mark Edwards, EVP Chief Credit Officer and Bank Economist. “Job growth has been positive for over a year after three years of a mild recession. Unfortunately, with the economic issues resulting from the COVID-19 virus we expect these improvements to end. A decline in tourist numbers and significantly lower oil prices are expected to change this growth pattern. This is further evidenced by the spike in weekly initial unemployment claims in Alaska to 14,600 the week of March 28, 2020 and 12,007 the week of April 4, 2020. For the prior year period ending March 30, 2019 the initial unemployment insurance claims were 891 and the week of April 6, 2019 they were 992.” Mr. Edwards added. Additionally, ConocoPhillips has announced that they will be reducing capital spending in Alaska by roughly $400 million, or 25%, in 2020 as compared to their previous plans.

Average monthly Alaska North Slope (“ANS”) crude oil prices ranged between approximately $60 and $80 in 2018 and 2019. This helped increase industry investment and employment after a difficult period of prices averaging between approximately $30 and $60 from 2015 to 2017. However, in the first quarter of 2020 prices began to fall rapidly in response to lower demand from COVID-19 quarantining and over production in the Middle East and Russia. In January of 2020, ANS prices averaged $65.48 and fell to $54.48 in February. The March monthly average was only $33.21. The ANS spot price at the end of the quarter March 31, 2020 was $23.18.

Alaska’s crude oil production averaged 511,800 barrels per day (“bpd”) in fiscal year (“FY”) 2019. This was a decrease of 4.2% compared to the previous year end. Total output declined 1.2% to 534,000 bpd in FY 2018. The State Department of Revenue forecasted production on the North Slope to decline 0.6% in FY 2020, though this forecast was made prior to COVID-19 impacts.

Alaska’s home mortgage delinquency and foreclosure levels continue to be better than most of the nation. According to the Mortgage Bankers Association, Alaska’s foreclosure rate was 0.63% at the end of 2019. The comparable national average rate was 0.78% at the end of the year. The national survey reported that the percentage of mortgage loans more than 30 days delinquent in Alaska was 2.85% at the end of 2019, compared to 4.07% for the entire country.

Review of Income Statement

Consolidated Income Statement

In the first quarter of 2020, Northrim generated a return on average assets ("ROAA") of 0.25% and a return on average equity ("ROAE") of 2.00%, compared to 1.11% and 8.74%, respectively, in the fourth quarter of 2019 and 1.18% and 8.36%, respectively, in the first quarter a year ago.

Net Interest Income/Net Interest Margin

Net interest income was $15.7 million in the first quarter of 2020 compared to $15.8 million in the first quarter of 2019 and $16.4 million in the fourth quarter of 2019. Interest income benefited from the growth in the loan portfolio which was more than offset by lower interest rates compared to both the fourth quarter of 2019 and the first quarter of 2019. The increased cost of interest-bearing deposits in the first quarter of 2020 compared to the first quarter of 2019 also contributed to the decline in net interest income.

NIMTE* was 4.37% in the first quarter of 2020 compared to 4.52% in the preceding quarter and 4.89% in the first quarter a year ago. “The decline in our NIMTE* compared to the prior quarter was primarily due to the swift reduction in short term interest rates during the quarter and the resulting effect on yields in the loan and investment portfolios,” said Ballard. “We anticipate further margin compression during future quarters as the sharp decline in interest rates did not occur until mid-March 2020, and the full effect of the lower interest rate environment has not yet been realized.” Northrim’s NIMTE* continues to remain above the peer average posted by the SNL Small Cap U.S. Bank Index with total market capitalization between $250 million and $1 billion as of December 31, 20191.

The yield on interest earning assets in the first quarter of 2020 was 4.82%, down 15 basis points from the fourth quarter of 2019 and down 41 basis points compared to the first quarter a year ago. The cost of funds was 70 basis points in the first quarter of 2020, which was unchanged compared to the preceding quarter and up 17 basis points compared to the first quarter a year ago.

Provision for Loan Losses

Northrim recorded a provision for loan losses of $2.1 million in the first quarter of 2020. This compares to a benefit for loan losses of $150,000 in the fourth quarter of 2019 and a provision for loan losses of $750,000 in the first quarter a year ago. “We recorded a $2.1 million provision for loan losses during the quarter as a result of growth in the loan portfolio, an increase in specific impairment related to one relationship, and an increase in management's assessment of increased risks associated with our loan portfolio from the COVID-19 pandemic, the reduction in oil prices and a slowing Alaska economy,” said Ballard.

Nonperforming loans, net of government guarantees, improved during the quarter to $13.4 million at March 31, 2020, compared to $14.0 million at December 31, 2019, and $18.5 million at March 31, 2019. The allowance for loan losses was 157% of nonperforming loans, net of government guarantees at March 31, 2020.

Other Operating Income

In addition to home mortgage lending, Northrim has interests in other businesses that complement its core community banking activities, including purchased receivables financing and wealth management. Other operating income contributed $6.4 million, or 29% of total first quarter 2020 revenues, as compared to $9.7 million, or 37% of revenues in the fourth quarter of 2019, and $7.5 million, or 32% of revenues in the first quarter of 2019. The primary drivers of changes in other operating income are variability in the mortgage market, which is seasonal and cyclical, and losses from the fair value changes of marketable equity securities. The fair value mark-to-market of the marketable equity securities portfolio decreased other income by $871,000 in the first quarter of 2020, compared to a $129,000 increase in the fourth quarter of 2019 and a $534,000 increase in the first quarter of 2019. There was no interest rate swap income in the first quarter of 2020 or the first quarter of 2019. This compares to $230,000 in interest rate swap income in the fourth quarter of 2019 on the execution of interest rate swaps related to the Company's commercial lending operations.

1As of December 31, 2019, the SNL Small Cap US Bank Index tracked 132 banks with total common market capitalization between $250 million to $1B with an average for NIMTE* of 3.44%.


Other Operating Expenses

Operating expenses were $18.8 million in the first quarter of 2020, compared to $20.6 million in the fourth quarter of 2019, and $17.1 million in the first quarter of 2019. Factors impacting other operating expenses include costs associated with branch expansion over the last year and higher insurance expense from the prior quarter, as the Bank received an insurance credit during of the fourth quarter of 2019.

Income Tax Provision

For the first quarter of 2020, Northrim recorded $243,000 in state and federal income tax expense for an effective tax rate of 19.0% compared to $1.1 million, or 19.4% in the fourth quarter of 2019 and $1.2 million, or 21.2% in the first quarter a year ago.

Community Banking

“Our Alaska operations continue to provide long-term opportunities in the market,” said Schierhorn. “On March 2, 2020 we opened a loan production office in Kodiak, and we recently received approval from the FDIC and the State of Alaska for a new branch in Fairbanks that we plan to open later in the third quarter of this year.” Net interest income in the Community Banking segment totaled $15.3 million in the first quarter of 2020, compared to $16.1 million in the fourth quarter of 2019 and $15.5 million in the first quarter of 2019.

Home Mortgage Lending

“We had larger production in our mortgage lending division during the first quarter of this year as compared to the prior year due to the low interest rate environment and the refinance activity it created,” said Ballard. “However, we did not generate a profit in our home mortgage lending segment due to both lower pricing of the secondary market hit by a flood of refinance activity, and the net change in fair value of mortgage servicing rights, which decreased mortgage banking income by $930,000 during the first quarter of 2020.”

During the first quarter of 2020, mortgage loan volume totaled $168.2 million, of which 54% was for new home purchases, compared to $181.1 million and 70% of loans funded for new home purchases in the fourth quarter of 2019, and $92.4 million, of which 84% were for new home purchases in the first quarter of 2019.

“Our mortgage servicing business, which was initiated in the fourth quarter of 2015 to service loans for the Alaska Housing Finance Corporation, generated continued growth during the quarter,” added Ballard. As of March 31, 2020, Northrim serviced 2,723 loans in its $678.1 million home-mortgage-servicing portfolio, which is a 16% increase from the $586.6 million serviced a year ago. Mortgage servicing revenue contributed $1.3 million to revenues in the first quarter of 2020 compared to $1.7 million in both the fourth quarter of 2019 and in the first quarter of 2019. Total mortgage servicing income fluctuates based on the amount of mortgage servicing rights originated during the period and changes in the fair value of those servicing rights, which is driven by interest rate volatility and fluctuations in estimated prepayment speeds based on published industry metrics. The change in the fair value of mortgage servicing rights was a decrease of $930,000 for the first quarter of 2020, compared to a decrease of $321,000 for the fourth quarter of 2019 and a decrease of $674,000 for the first quarter of 2019.

Average interest-earning assets were $1.46 billion in the first quarter of 2020, up modestly from $1.45 billion in the fourth quarter of 2019 and up 10% from $1.32 billion in the first quarter a year ago. The average yield on interest-earning assets was 4.82% in the first quarter of 2020, down from 4.97% in the preceding quarter and 5.23% in the first quarter a year ago.

Average investment securities increased modestly to $284.1 million in the first quarter of 2020, compared to $279.8 million in the fourth quarter of 2019 and $280.4 million in the first quarter a year ago. The average net tax equivalent yield on the securities portfolio was 2.59% for the first quarter of 2020, down from 2.65% in both the preceding quarter and the year ago quarter. The average estimated duration of the investment portfolio at March 31, 2020 was 2.1 years.

“The loan pipeline was strong during the first quarter, especially for C&I loans, as we expanded new customer relationships, however; production started to slow near the end of March, as companies paused their expansion efforts and placed projects on hold as a result of the uncertainty around the COVID-19 pandemic and a drop in oil prices,” said Ballard. At March 31, 2020, commercial loans remained at 40% of total loans, while commercial real estate decreased slightly to 46% of total loans and construction loans remained at 10% of total loans, compared to three months earlier. Portfolio loans were $1.08 billion at March 31, 2020, up 4% from the preceding quarter and up 10% from a year ago. Average portfolio loans in the first quarter of 2020 were $1.06 billion, up 3% from the preceding quarter and up 7% from a year ago. Yields on average portfolio loans in the first quarter of 2020 decreased to 5.69% from 5.94% in the fourth quarter of 2019 and decreased compared to 6.04% in the first quarter of 2019.

Alaskans continue to account for substantially all of Northrim’s deposit base, which is primarily made up of low-cost transaction accounts. At March 31, 2020, balances in transaction accounts represented 88% of total deposits. Total deposits were $1.40 billion at March 31, 2020, up 2% from $1.37 billion at December 31, 2019, and up 14% from $1.23 billion a year ago. Average interest-bearing deposits were up 2% to $925.9 million with an average cost of 0.64% in the first quarter of 2020, compared to $910.4 million and an average cost of 0.65% in the fourth quarter of 2019, and up 16% compared to $800.5 million and an average cost of 0.48% in the first quarter of 2019.

“Our lenders, retail bankers and commercial cash managers have continued to execute on bringing new deposits relationships to the Bank and these new customers are sharing their experience with their peers, resulting in further new customers for the Bank,” said Michael Martin, the Bank's Chief Operating Officer and General Counsel. “Our suite of deposit products, along with superior customer first service, is proving to be what businesses want from their community bank,” Martin noted.

Shareholders’ equity was $197.7 million, or $31.06 per share, at March 31, 2020, compared to $207.1 million, or $31.58 per share, at December 31, 2019 and $208.8 million, or $30.36 per share, a year ago. Tangible book value per share* was $28.53 at March 31, 2020, compared to $29.12 at December 31, 2019, and $28.01 per share a year ago. Northrim continues to maintain capital levels in excess of the requirements to be categorized as “well-capitalized” with Tier 1 Capital to Risk Adjusted Assets of 13.25% at March 31, 2020, compared to 14.38% at December 31, 2019, and 15.60% at March 31, 2019. Investments in share repurchases accounted for a large part of the decline in shareholder equity in the first quarter of 2020 compared to the preceding quarter.

“Due to the recent drop in oil prices and the COVID-19 pandemic, we completed a goodwill impairment analysis at the end of March 2020 for each of the reporting segments, Community Banking and Home Mortgage Lending, and found that at this time there was no change in goodwill," said Ballard. The goodwill carried on the balance sheet was primarily as a result of acquisitions completed in 1999, 2007, and 2014. The Bank has never recorded impairment of its goodwill.

Asset Quality

“We are starting from a strong asset quality position as we enter this new economic cycle,” said Martin. “Several credit quality metrics improved during the first quarter of this year compared to three months earlier, and we were actively communicating with borrowers and offering them solutions, before the PPP loan program was put into place. We remain diligent with stress testing and monitoring the loan portfolio.”

Nonperforming assets ("NPAs") net of government guarantees were $21.4 million at March 31, 2020, compared to $19.9 million at December 31, 2019, and $25.5 million at March 31, 2019. Of the NPAs, $13.1 million, or 61% are nonaccrual loans and purchased receivables related to ten commercial relationships. Two of these relationships, which totaled $7.0 million at the end of the first quarter of 2020, are businesses in the medical industry.

Net adversely classified loans improved to $17.4 million at March 31, 2020, as compared to $22.3 million at December 31, 2019, and $27.1 million a year ago. Net loan charge offs were $131,000 in the first quarter of 2020, compared to net loan recoveries of $101,000 in the fourth quarter of 2019, and net loan charge offs of $60,000 in the first quarter of 2019. Adversely classified loans are loans that Northrim has classified as substandard, doubtful, and loss, net of government guarantees. As of March 31, 2020, $12.4 million, or 72% of net adversely classified loans are attributable to nine relationships with five loans to commercial businesses, two loans to medical businesses, and two loans to oilfield services commercial businesses.

Performing restructured loans that were not included in nonaccrual loans at March 31, 2020, net of government guarantees were $1.4 million, unchanged from the preceding quarter and down from $3.4 million a year ago. The decrease in the first quarter of 2020 compared to the year ago quarter is primarily due to the repayment of one relationship. Borrowers who are in financial difficulty and who have been granted concessions that may include interest rate reductions, term extensions, or payment alterations are categorized as restructured loans. The Company presents restructured loans that are performing separately from those that are classified as nonaccrual to provide more information on this category of loans and to differentiate between accruing performing and nonperforming restructured loans. As of March 31, 2020, the Company has not made a material number of loan accommodations and only began to see requests for changes near the end of the quarter.

As of March 31, 2020, Northrim had $63.7 million, or 6% of portfolio loans, in the tourism sector, $56.9 million, or 5% of portfolio loans, in the aviation (non-tourism) sector, $45.2 million, or 4% of total loans, in the healthcare sector, $19.5 million, or 2%, in retail loans and $18.0 million, or 2% in the restaurant sector, and $36.4 million, or 3% in the accommodations sector.

Northrim estimates that $86.9 million, or approximately 8% of portfolio loans had direct exposure to the oil and gas industry in Alaska, as of March 31, 2020, and $3.0 million of these loans are adversely classified. As of March 31, 2020, Northrim has an additional $37.9 million in unfunded commitments to companies with direct exposure to the oil and gas industry in Alaska, and none of these unfunded commitments are considered to be adversely classified loans. Northrim defines direct exposure to the oil and gas sector as loans to borrowers that provide oilfield services and other companies that have been identified as significantly reliant upon activity in Alaska related to the oil and gas industry, such as lodging, equipment rental, transportation and other logistics services specific to this industry.
