BEDMINSTER, N.J., Jan. 29, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Peapack-Gladstone Financial Corporation (NASDAQ Global Select Market: PGC) (the “Company”) announces its fourth quarter and full year 2019 results, a quarterly dividend, and the status of the stock repurchase program.

For the quarter ended December 31, 2019, the Company recorded revenue of $46.44 million, pretax income of $17.79 million, net income of $12.23 million and diluted earnings per share (“EPS”) of $0.64, compared to $40.64 million, $13.62 million, $10.73 million and $0.55, respectively, for the same three-month period last year. The 2019 quarter included increased net interest income and non-interest income, partially offset by an increased provision for loan and lease losses (due to loan growth) and increased operating expenses (due in part to the wealth management firm acquired in September 2019). In comparing the fourth quarter of 2019 to the fourth quarter of 2018, revenue increased 14% and pretax income increased 31%, reflecting favorable operating leverage during the period. For the same periods net income increased 14% and EPS increased 16%. The lower growth in net income and EPS relative to pre-tax income was due to a higher effective tax rate in 2019 caused by changes in NJ State tax law in 2018.

For the twelve months ended December 31, 2019, the Company recorded total revenue of $174.97 million, pretax income of $66.12 million, net income of $47.43 million and diluted earnings per share of $2.44, compared to $159.36 million, $57.72 million, $44.17 million and $2.31, respectively, for the twelve months ended December 31, 2018, reflecting increases of 10% in revenue and 15% in pretax income, reflecting favorable operating leverage. Net income and EPS increased 7% and 6%, respectively, less than the increase in pretax income due to the increase in the effective tax rate in 2019. The effective tax rate was 28.26% for twelve months of 2019 compared to 23.48% for the twelve months of 2018. The increase was caused by changes in NJ State tax law in 2018.

As previously announced, on July 25, 2019, the Company authorized the repurchase of up to 960,000 shares, or approximately 5% of its outstanding shares, through June 30, 2020. During the fourth quarter of 2019, under this program, the Company purchased 143,925 shares, at an average price of $29.78, for a total cost of $4.3 million. To date, under this program, the Company purchased 739,778 shares, at an average price of $28.39, for a total cost of $21.0 million. 220,222 shares remain to be purchased under the authorization.

Douglas L. Kennedy, President and CEO, said, “We were very pleased with our earnings this past quarter, as we continued to drive operating leverage. We acknowledge the challenges the Bank and the industry face given the recent Fed rate decreases and the shape of the yield curve. We were pleased our reported net interest margin (“NIM”) did not decrease and our NIM, adjusted for prepayment premiums and excess liquidity (see page 6), only decreased marginally in the fourth quarter, after the three rate decreases during the second half of 2019. Further, we believe our strategy (which results in a higher incidence of fee income - 33% of total revenue for the fourth quarter of 2019) will enable us to deliver higher quality earnings and increased shareholder value over time.”

  1. The year ended December 31, 2019 included a full year of wealth management fee income and expense related to Lassus Wherley, which was acquired effective September 1, 2018, and includes four months of wealth management fee income and expense related to Point View, which was acquired effective September 1, 2019. The 2019 twelve months included a higher effective tax rate than the prior year due to changes in NJ state tax law.

  2. The 2018 year includes $4.39 million loss on the sale of multifamily loans; $3.00 million of life insurance proceeds related to the December 31, 2018 passing of the founder and managing principal of MCM; and a $405,000 write-down of intangible assets related to MCM.

Other highlights for the quarter included:

  • Wealth Management remains integral to our strategy and provides a diversified, predictable, and stable source of revenue over time:

    • As previously announced, effective September 1, 2019 the Company completed its acquisition of Point View, a registered investment advisor headquartered in Summit, NJ, which added nearly $350 million of assets under management and/or administration (“AUM/AUA”).

    • At December 31, 2019, the market value of AUM/AUA at the Peapack Private Wealth Management Division of Peapack-Gladstone Bank (the “Bank”) was $7.5 billion reflecting an increase of $1.7 billion from $5.8 billion at December 31, 2018, reflecting growth of 29% from the end of the prior year.

    • Wealth management fee income totaled $10.12 million and $38.36 million for the quarter and year ended December 31, 2019, reflecting an increase of $1.6 million, or 18%, from the December 2018 quarter and $5.1 million or 15% from the 2018 year.

    • Wealth management fee income, which comprised approximately 22% of the Company’s total revenue for the quarter ended December 31, 2019, continues to contribute significantly to the Company’s diversified revenue sources.

  • Growth in Commercial Banking also continues to be integral to our strategy:

    • Total commercial and industrial (“C&I”) loans (including equipment finance leases and loans of $659 million) at December 31, 2019 were $1.78 billion. This reflected net growth of $378 million (27%) when compared to $1.40 billion at December 31, 2018 and reflected net growth of $201 million when compared to the September 30, 2019 balance (13% growth linked quarter; 51% annualized).

    • C&I momentum has continued to build and pipelines remain strong.

    • As of December 31, 2019, total C&I loans comprised 40% of the total loan portfolio, as compared to 36% at December 31, 2018. As of December 31, 2019, total multifamily loans comprised 27% of the total loan portfolio compared to 29% at December 31, 2018.

    • The Bank’s concentration in commercial real estate loans was 404% of risk-based capital at December 31, 2019 compared to 394% at December 31, 2018. The slight increase was due to management’s plan to generate volumes ahead of and at yields in excess of expected significant maturities/payoffs in 2020.


  • Deposits, funding, and interest rate risk continue to be actively managed:

    • Deposits totaled $4.24 billion at December 31, 2019. This reflected net growth of $348 million (9%) when compared to $3.90 billion at December 31, 2018 and increased $182 million (4% growth linked quarter; 18% annualized) when compared to the September 30, 2019 balance.

    • The Company’s loan-to-deposit ratio was 104.0% at December 31, 2019, up slightly from September 30, 2019 and December 31, 2018 levels .

    • The Company continues to have access to approximately $1.3 billion of available secured funding at the Federal Home Loan Bank.

    • With the transformation to a commercial bank balance sheet and business model, the Company’s interest rate sensitivity models indicate the Company is asset sensitive as of December 31, 2019, and that net interest income would improve in a rising rate environment but decline in a falling rate environment. Over the past six months, the Company has been managing its balance sheet and deposit costs to mitigate the effects of a falling rate environment.

  • Capital and asset quality continue to be strong.

    • The Company’s and Bank’s capital ratios at December 31, 2019 remain strong, despite $21.0 million of share repurchases made during the third and fourth quarters as part of the Company’s stock repurchase program. At December 31, 2019 the Company’s tangible capital ratio stood at 9.01%. The Company believes its existing capital and capital generation from earnings will be more than adequate to support planned balance sheet growth, wealth acquisitions, and potential purchases under its stock repurchase program.

    • The Company authorized a 5% (960,000 shares) stock repurchase program on July 25, 2019 under which the Company has purchased 739,778 shares through the end of the fourth quarter.

    • The Company’s tangible book value per share at December 31, 2019 was $24.47 reflecting an increase of 8% from $22.58 at December 31, 2018.

    • Asset quality metrics continued to be strong as of December 31, 2019. Nonperforming assets at December 31, 2019 were $28.9 million, or 0.56% of total assets as compared to $25.7 million and 0.56% of total assets at December 31, 2018.

SUPPLEMENTAL QUARTERLY DETAILS:

Wealth Management Business

In the December 2019 quarter, the Bank’s wealth management business generated $10.12 million in fee income, reflecting an increase of $1.57 million (18% growth) compared to $8.55 million for the December 2018 quarter, and reflecting an increase of $619,000 from the September 2019 quarter (7% growth linked quarter, 26% annualized). The December 2019 quarter included three months of fee income related to Point View compared to one month in the September 2019 quarter, which was acquired effective September 1, 2019, as well as increased fees from net organic growth in assets under management.

John P. Babcock, President of the “Peapack Private Wealth Management” division said, “I am pleased with our results; we had approximately $750 million of new business inflows in 2019 and have a strong pipeline as we finished the year strong. We are making significant forward progress on integrating the systems, processes and people from our 2017, 2018, and 2019 acquisitions and continue to selectively look for additional acquisitions that can add talent and expertise to our wealth management organization.”

Loans / Commercial Banking

Net loans increased to $4.37 billion at December 31, 2019 from $3.89 billion at December 31, 2018, reflecting 12% annual growth. Loan/line origination levels were robust as was paydown activity. Mr. Kennedy noted, “We were pleased to have strong net loan growth, despite increased paydown activity. And, we have entered the new year with strong loan pipelines.”

Total C&I loans (including equipment finance leases and loans of $659 million) at December 31, 2019 were $1.78 billion. This reflected net growth of $378 million (27%) when compared to $1.40 billion at December 31, 2018 and reflected net growth of $201 million when compared to the September 30, 2019 balance (13% growth linked quarter; 51% annualized).

Mr. Kennedy said, “The loan market continues to be extremely competitive from a structure/credit and a pricing perspective. As I have noted before, we will continue to be disciplined and not compromise our credit standards, but we will compete on price, as long as returns remain reasonable as measured by our proprietary loan pricing model.”

Mr. Kennedy also said, “Our newly expanded Corporate Advisory and Structured Finance businesses give us the capability to engage in high level strategic debt, capital and valuation analysis coupled with succession, estate and wealth planning strategies, enabling us to provide a unique boutique level of service, giving us a competitive advantage over much of our peers.”

Funding / Liquidity / Interest Rate Risk Management

The Company actively manages its deposit base to reduce reliance on wholesale sourced deposits, volatility, and/or operational risk.

For the quarter ended December 31, 2019, the Company utilized its excess balance sheet liquidity (basically interest-earning deposits), increased client deposits and short-term borrowings to fund its loan growth.

Mr. Kennedy noted, “As a commercial bank with an asset sensitive balance sheet, as the Fed reduces rates, our loans reprice faster than our deposits. Thus, we have been and will remain keenly focused on our comprehensive deposit rate reduction program with an eye toward relationship profitability.”

As of December 31, 2019, in addition to approximately $610 million of cash, cash equivalents and investment securities on its balance sheet, the Company also had approximately $1.55 billion of secured funding available from the Federal Home Loan Bank, of which only $233 million was drawn as of December 31, 2019.

Mr. Kennedy noted, “Depending on market conditions, we may utilize lower cost fixed rate wholesale borrowings and/or interest rate swaps, as opposed to retail deposits, to fund fixed rate loan production.”

Kennedy went on to note, “The northeast market continues to be extremely competitive for deposits. The Company is focused on providing high touch client service, a key element in growing its personal and commercial core deposit base. The Company is focused on multiple retail channels, as well as commercial channels, including its enhanced Treasury Management and Escrow offerings. Further, all of our Private Bankers remain keenly focused on deposit gathering.”

Mr. Kennedy noted, “Given the yield curve as well as the recent Fed rate decreases, our reported NIM remained flat, but our core NIM declined slightly this quarter, as was expected. While our models indicate additional slight compression in Q1 2020, assuming no further Fed rate decreases, we believe our margin will gradually begin to improve after that. In addition to managing our balance sheet, asset yields and cost of deposits very closely, we will continue to focus even more on fee based activities.”

Other Noninterest Income (other than Wealth Management fee income)

Noninterest income from Capital Markets activities (loan level back-to-back swap activities, SBA lending and sale program, and mortgage banking income) totaled $3.73 million for the December 2019 quarter compared to $2.77 million for the September 2019 quarter and $2.19 million for the December 2018 quarter. Income from these programs are not linear each quarter, as some quarters will be higher than others.

Other income totaled $504,000 for the fourth quarter of 2019, compared to $902,000 for the third quarter of 2019, and $3.6 million for the fourth quarter of 2018. The December 2018 quarter included $3.00 million of life insurance proceeds related to the December 31, 2018 passing of the founder and managing principal of Murphy Capital Management.

The December 2018 quarter included a $4.39 million loss on the sale of $131 million of fixed rate multifamily loans, sold as part of the Company’s balance sheet management strategy.

Operating Expenses

The Company’s total operating expenses were $26.70 million for the quarter ended December 31, 2019, compared to $26.26 million for the September 2019 quarter and $25.52 million for the December 2018 quarter. The December 2019 quarter included three months of expenses related to Point View’s operations compared to one month in the September 2019 quarter. Strategic hiring and normal salary increases also contributed to the increase for the December 2019 quarter. There was no FDIC insurance expense for the December 2019 quarter or the September 2019 quarter as the Bank utilized its small bank assessment credit from the FDIC. Mr. Kennedy said, “As we reported last quarter, the Company launched a company-wide expense review, with a goal of slowing expense growth, while continuing our investment in digital and in client acquisition initiatives. Both activities continue to be important given the current yield curve environment.”

Income Taxes

The effective tax rate for the December 2019 quarter was 31.2%, compared to 29.9% for the September 2019 quarter, and 21.2% for the December 2018 quarter. The effective tax rate for the year ended December 31, 2019 was 28.3% compared to 23.5% for the year ended December 31, 2018. The 2019 periods included higher NJ State Income Tax due to the change in NJ Tax law.

Asset Quality / Provision for Loan and Lease Losses

Nonperforming assets at December 31, 2019 (which does not include troubled debt restructured loans that are performing in accordance with their terms) were $28.9 million, or 0.56% of total assets, compared to $29.7 million, or 0.60% of total assets, at September 30, 2019 and $25.7 million, or 0.56% of total assets, at December 31, 2018. Total loans past due 30 through 89 days and still accruing were $1.9 million at December 31, 2019, compared to $6.3 million at September 30, 2019 and $3.5 million at December 31, 2018.

For the quarter ended December 31, 2019, the Company’s provision for loan and lease losses was $2.0 million compared to $800,000 for the September 2019 quarter and $1.5 million for the December 2018 quarter. The Company’s provision for loan and lease losses (and its allowance for loan and lease losses) reflect, among other things, the Company’s asset quality metrics, net loan growth, net charge-offs/recoveries, and the composition of the loan portfolio.

At December 31, 2019, the allowance for loan and lease losses was $43.68 million (151% of nonperforming loans and 0.99% of total loans), compared to $41.58 million at September 30, 2019 (142% of nonperforming loans and 1.00% of total loans), and $38.50 million (150% of nonperforming loans and 0.98% of total loans) at December 31, 2018.

Capital / Dividend / Stock Repurchase Program

The Company’s capital position during the December 2019 quarter was benefitted by net income partially offset by the purchase of shares through the Company’s stock repurchase program. During the quarter, the Company purchased 143,925 shares, at an average price of $29.78, for a total cost of $4.3 million.

The Company’s and Bank’s capital ratios at December 31, 2019 all remain strong. Such ratios remain well above regulatory well capitalized standards.

On January 28, 2020, the Company declared a cash dividend of $0.05 per share payable on February 26, 2020 to shareholders of record on February 11, 2020.

PEAPACK-GLADSTONE FINANCIAL CORPORATION
NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES RECONCILIATION

Tangible book value per share and tangible equity as a percentage of tangible assets at period end are non-GAAP financial measures derived from GAAP-based amounts. We calculate tangible equity and tangible assets by excluding the balance of intangible assets from shareholders’ equity and total assets, respectively. We calculate tangible book value per share by dividing tangible equity by period end common shares outstanding, as compared to book value per common share, which we calculate by dividing shareholders’ equity by period end common shares outstanding. We calculate tangible equity as a percentage of tangible assets at period end by dividing tangible equity by tangible assets at period end. We believe that this is consistent with the treatment by bank regulatory agencies, which exclude intangible assets from the calculation of risk-based capital ratios.

The efficiency ratio is a non-GAAP measure of expense control relative to recurring revenue. We calculate the efficiency ratio by dividing total noninterest expenses, excluding ORE provision, as determined under GAAP, by net interest income and total noninterest income as determined under GAAP, but excluding net gains/(losses) on loans held for sale at lower of cost or fair value and excluding net gains on securities from this calculation, which we refer to below as recurring revenue. We believe that this provides one reasonable measure of core expenses relative to core revenue.

We believe that these non-GAAP financial measures provide information that is important to investors and that is useful in understanding our financial position, results and ratios. Our management internally assesses our performance based, in part, on these measures. However, these non-GAAP financial measures are supplemental and are not a substitute for an analysis based on GAAP measures. As other companies may use different calculations for these measures, this presentation may not be comparable to other similarly titles measures reported by other companies. A reconciliation of the non-GAAP measures of tangible common equity, tangible book value per share and efficiency ratio to the underlying GAAP numbers is set forth below.
