"Despite a volatile and challenging operating environment, 2021 afforded us extraordinary opportunities for outsized growth," said M. Terry Turner, Pinnacle's president and chief executive officer. "Adjusted earnings increased 56.5 percent over last year, our pre-tax and pre-provision revenues were up 16.1 percent year-over-year, and excluding the impact of PPP, we achieved loan growth of nearly 12 percent. Importantly, to bolster our future growth prospects, during 2021 we announced expansion into several new markets, including the Washington D.C. area, and we added 119 revenue producers to our ranks. As we enter 2022, we believe we are well positioned to continue to execute on our rapid growth model."

Total assets at Dec. 31, 2021 were $38.5 billion, an increase of approximately $3.5 billion from Dec. 31, 2020, reflecting a year-over-year increase of 10.1 percent. A further analysis of select balance sheet trends follows:

"During the fourth quarter, loan growth approximated 6.2 percent annualized when compared to balances at Sept. 30, 2021. After excluding the impact of PPP, loans increased at an annualized rate of 12.4 percent," Turner said. "Replacing PPP revenue is primarily a function of new loan growth in 2022. In that regard, we remain optimistic and believe we have the infrastructure in place, as well as the momentum, to deliver loan growth of 10 to 15 percent in 2022."

  • Revenue per fully diluted common share was $4.47 for the three months ended Dec. 31, 2021, compared to $4.50 for the third quarter of 2021 and $4.03 for the fourth quarter of 2020, a 10.9 percent year-over-year growth rate. Revenue per fully diluted share was $17.49 for the year ended Dec. 31, 2021, compared to $15.06 for the year ended Dec. 31, 2020, a growth rate of 16.1 percent.

  • Net interest income for the quarter ended Dec. 31, 2021 was $238.8 million, compared to $237.5 million for the third quarter of 2021 and $221.0 million for the fourth quarter of 2020, a year-over-year growth rate of 8.0 percent. Net interest margin was 2.96 percent for the fourth quarter of 2021, compared to 3.03 percent for the third quarter of 2021 and 2.97 percent for the fourth quarter of 2020.

    • Revenues from PPP loans approximated $15.5 million in the fourth quarter of 2021, compared to $21.2 million in the third quarter of 2021 and $24.6 million in the fourth quarter of 2020. For the year ended Dec. 31, 2021, revenues from PPP loans approximated $85.9 million, compared to $52.3 million for the year ended Dec. 31, 2020.

    • Impacting the firm’s net interest margin in the third and fourth quarters of 2021 and the fourth quarter of 2020 were both the PPP loans and the firm’s decision early in the pandemic to maintain additional on-balance sheet liquidity. The firm estimates its third and fourth quarter 2021 net interest margin was negatively impacted by approximately 17 and 25 basis points, respectively, as a result of PPP loans and additional liquidity, compared to approximately 30 basis points for the fourth quarter 2020.

    • Included in net interest income for the fourth quarter of 2021 was $2.2 million of discount accretion associated with fair value adjustments, compared to $2.8 million of discount accretion recognized in the third quarter of 2021 and $4.4 million in the fourth quarter of 2020. The firm's net interest margin was positively impacted because of fair value adjustment discount accretion by approximately 3 basis points for each of the third and fourth quarters of 2021 and by 6 basis points for the fourth quarter of 2020. There remains $8.6 million of purchase accounting discount accretion as of Dec. 31, 2021.

  • Noninterest income for the quarter ended Dec. 31, 2021 was $100.7 million, compared to $104.1 million for the quarter ended Sept. 30, 2021, a linked-quarter annualized decrease of 13.0 percent. Compared to $83.4 million for the fourth quarter of 2020, noninterest income grew 20.7 percent.

    • Wealth management revenues, which include investment, trust and insurance services, were $19.3 million for the fourth quarter of 2021, compared to $17.3 million for the third quarter of 2021, a linked-quarter annualized increase of 48.2 percent. Compared to $14.3 million for the fourth quarter of 2020, wealth management revenues were up 35.4 percent.

    • Income from the firm's investment in BHG was $30.8 million for the quarter ended Dec. 31, 2021, up from $30.4 million for the quarter ended Sept. 30, 2021 and $24.3 million for the quarter ended Dec. 31, 2020.

    • Other noninterest income was $33.2 million for the quarter ended Dec. 31, 2021, compared to $37.2 million for the quarter ended Sept. 30, 2021 and $24.0 million for the quarter ended Dec. 31, 2020, a linked-quarter annualized decrease of 42.4 percent and year-over-year growth of 38.5 percent, respectively. Contributing to the linked-quarter decline was $4.1 million of income from other equity investments during the three months ended Dec. 31, 2021, compared to $8.6 million during the three months ended Sept. 30, 2021 and $1.1 million for the three months ended Dec. 31, 2020. Income from other equity investments for the year ended Dec. 31, 2021 was $23.1 million compared to $1.1 million for the previous year.

  • Noninterest expense for the quarter ended Dec. 31, 2021 was $170.4 million, compared to $168.9 million in the third quarter of 2021 and $161.3 million in the fourth quarter of 2020, reflecting a year-over-year increase of 5.6 percent.

    • Salaries and employee benefits were $110.0 million in the fourth quarter of 2021, compared to $112.4 million in the third quarter of 2021 and $90.0 million in the fourth quarter of 2020, reflecting a year-over-year increase of 22.3 percent.

    • Noninterest expense categories, other than salaries and employee benefits, were $60.4 million in the fourth quarter of 2021, compared to $56.4 million in the third quarter of 2021 and $71.3 million in the fourth quarter of 2020, reflecting a year-over-year decrease of 15.3 percent.

"We continue our PPNR focus and are pleased with our PPNR results in 2021," said Harold R. Carpenter, Pinnacle’s chief financial officer. "As we enter 2022, we believe with the opportunities we have in our new markets, as well as the ongoing recruiting success we are experiencing in our existing markets, we can achieve continued PPNR growth in 2022. That said, PPNR growth in 2022 will be challenging, given our great success with the PPP program in 2020 and 2021, but our goal remains to be a top-quartile performer regardless of the operating environment.

"Our nearly 12 percent growth in loans, excluding PPP, significantly impacted our revenue results for 2021. Strong discipline on deposit pricing, another big year from both BHG and wealth management as well as success with our other equity investments all contributed to an outstanding year for us. Furthermore, we believe our ability to manage our expense base was evident in 2021. Even though our overall headcount increased by 8.0 percent in 2021 and our corporate incentive costs increased from $52.6 million in 2020 to $109.1 million in 2021, we were able to maintain an efficiency ratio of 49.70 percent in 2021 compared to 49.53 percent in 2020."

"We remain pleased with our profitability metrics and are optimistic we will be able to continue to successfully execute on our strategy that targets top-quartile peer performance in the years to come," Carpenter said. "We are very pleased to report a 14.2 percent increase in tangible book value per share between Dec. 31, 2020 and Dec. 31, 2021. That said, while we will maintain our focus on growing earnings, PPNR and tangible book value per share, we will be mindful of pricing discipline as we grow our business in what is shaping up to be a rising rate environment in 2022. Recent changes in the interest rate outlook for 2022, our targeted low- to mid-teen percentage increase in loans for next year, our recent expansion into new markets and our belief that we hope to see incremental deployment of excess liquidity give us reason to be optimistic for the coming year."

MAINTAINING A STRONG BALANCE SHEET:

  • Provision for credit losses was $2.7 million in the fourth quarter of 2021, compared to $3.4 million in the third quarter of 2021 and $9.2 million in the fourth quarter of 2020. Net charge-offs were $8.1 million for the quarter ended Dec. 31, 2021, compared to $9.3 million for the quarter ended Sept. 30, 2021 and $10.8 million for the quarter ended Dec. 31, 2020.

"Our credit performance has been strong for many years, and we believe it should continue as we enter 2022," Carpenter said. "Our relationship managers and credit officers have done a remarkable job navigating the pandemic and its impact on our borrowers. During 2021, we reduced our allowance for credit losses to total loans (excluding PPP loans) from 1.38 percent at year end 2020 to 1.14 percent at Dec. 31, 2021, a decrease of 24 basis points. Given our anticipated credit performance and the forecasted business climate for 2022, we believe that continued reductions in this ratio are possible at least through the first half of 2022."

BOARD OF DIRECTORS DECLARES DIVIDENDS AND AUTHORIZES SHARE REPURCHASE PLAN

On Jan. 18, 2022, Pinnacle Financial's Board of Directors approved a quarterly cash dividend of $0.22 per common share to be paid on Feb. 25, 2022 to common shareholders of record as of the close of business on Feb. 4, 2022.

The amount and timing of any future dividend payments to both preferred and common shareholders will be subject to the approval of Pinnacle's Board of Directors.

The firm also announced that its Board of Directors has authorized a new share repurchase program for up to $125 million of the Company’s common stock to commence upon expiration of its existing share repurchase program that is set to expire on March 31, 2022.

The share repurchase program may be extended, modified, amended, suspended or discontinued at any time at the Company’s discretion and does not commit the Company to repurchase shares of its common stock. The actual timing, number and value of the shares to be purchased under the program will be determined by the Company at its discretion and will depend on a number of factors, including the performance of the Company’s stock price, the Company’s ongoing capital planning considerations, general market and other conditions, applicable legal requirements and compliance with the terms of the Company’s outstanding indebtedness.

Non-GAAP Financial Matters

This release contains certain non-GAAP financial measures, including, without limitation, earnings per diluted common share, PPNR, efficiency ratio and the ratio of noninterest expense to average assets, excluding in certain instances the impact of expenses related to other real estate owned, gains or losses on sale of investment securities, FHLB restructuring charges, hedge termination charges and other matters for the accounting periods presented. This release also includes non-GAAP financial measures which exclude the impact of loans originated under the PPP. This release may also contain certain other non-GAAP capital ratios and performance measures that exclude the impact of goodwill and core deposit intangibles associated with Pinnacle Financial's acquisitions of BNC, Avenue Bank, Magna Bank, CapitalMark Bank & Trust, Mid-America Bancshares, Inc., Cavalry Bancorp, Inc. and other acquisitions which collectively are less material to the non-GAAP measure as well as the impact of Pinnacle Financial's Series B Preferred Stock. The presentation of the non-GAAP financial information is not intended to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for any measure prepared in accordance with GAAP. Because non-GAAP financial measures presented in this release are not measurements determined in accordance with GAAP and are susceptible to varying calculations, these non-GAAP financial measures, as presented, may not be comparable to other similarly titled measures presented by other companies.

Pinnacle Financial believes that these non-GAAP financial measures facilitate making period-to-period comparisons and are meaningful indications of its operating performance. In addition, because intangible assets such as goodwill and the core deposit intangible, and the other items excluded each vary extensively from company to company, Pinnacle Financial believes that the presentation of this information allows investors to more easily compare Pinnacle Financial's results to the results of other companies. Pinnacle Financial's management utilizes this non-GAAP financial information to compare Pinnacle Financial's operating performance for 2021 versus certain periods in 2020 and to internally prepared projections.
