Regional Management Corp. Announces Third Quarter 2020 Results

·18 min read

- Net income of $11.2 million and diluted earnings per share of $1.01 -

- Net finance receivables growth of $36.9 million quarter-over-quarter -

- Stable 30+ day contractual delinquencies of 4.7% as of September 30, 2020 -

- Initiates quarterly dividend of $0.20 per share and authorizes $30 million share repurchase program -

Regional Management Corp. (NYSE: RM), a diversified consumer finance company, today announced results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2020.

"I am delighted with our third quarter performance, which is a validation of our sustainable operating model, our team’s ability to execute in a challenging environment, and the fundamental resilience of our customers," said Robert W. Beck, President and Chief Executive Officer of Regional Management Corp. "Our omni-channel strategy, including our implementation of remote loan closings, enabled us to grow our loan portfolio by $37 million in the third quarter despite macroeconomic headwinds. We accomplished this growth while continuing to maintain our underwriting standards and our portfolio’s stable credit profile."

"Thanks in part to solid execution on our most recent securitization transaction in September, we also continue to maintain ample liquidity, including $208 million of immediately available liquidity as of October 23, 2020, which positions us well to withstand any additional economic challenges," added Mr. Beck. "To that end, based on our consistently strong performance, liquidity profile, excess capital, and confidence in our future prospects, we are very pleased that our Board of Directors has authorized a new $30 million share repurchase program and initiated a quarterly dividend of $0.20 per common share beginning in the fourth quarter of 2020. We are confident in our business model’s ability to generate excess capital to return to our shareholders on a regular basis. The recurring dividend and repurchase programs allow us to return significant value to our shareholders, while retaining ample capital to continue our investment in omni-channel and digital initiatives that will expand our market share and generate sustainable long-term profitable growth."

Third Quarter 2020 Highlights

  • Net income for the third quarter of 2020 was $11.2 million and diluted earnings per share was $1.01, compared to net income of $12.6 million and diluted earnings per share of $1.08 in the prior-year period.

  • Net finance receivables as of September 30, 2020 were $1.1 billion, an increase of 3.6%, or $36.9 million, from June 30, 2020, and a decrease of 0.7%, or $7.5 million, from the prior-year period.

    • Total core small and large loan net finance receivables increased $9.8 million, or 0.9%, compared to the prior-year period.

    • Large loan net finance receivables of $655.9 million increased $80.9 million, or 14.1%, from the prior-year period and represented 61.9% of the total loan portfolio. Small loan net finance receivables were $382.8 million, a decrease of 15.7% from the prior-year period.

  • Total revenue for the third quarter of 2020 was $90.5 million, a decrease of $1.2 million, or 1.3%, from the prior-year period.

    • Interest and fee income decreased $1.8 million, or 2.1%, primarily attributable to the intended product mix shift toward large loans and the portfolio composition shift toward higher credit quality customers with slightly lower interest rates due to enhanced credit standards during the pandemic.

    • Insurance income, net increased $1.8 million, or 34.9%, driven by an increase in premium revenue and a decrease in non-file insurance claims expense.

  • Provision for credit losses for the third quarter of 2020 was $22.1 million, a decrease of $2.4 million, or 9.9%, from the prior-year period. The provision for credit losses includes a release in the allowance for credit losses of $1.5 million related to the expected economic impact of the COVID-19 pandemic and a $3.5 million incremental build in reserves related to portfolio growth.

    • Allowance for credit losses was $144.0 million as of September 30, 2020, including a $31.9 million allowance for credit losses associated with COVID-19. The company’s macroeconomic model assumes elevated unemployment in 2020 with a gradual decline to 9% by the end of 2021.

  • Annualized net credit losses as a percentage of average net finance receivables for the third quarter of 2020 were 7.8%, a 30 basis point improvement compared to 8.1% in the prior-year period.

  • 30+ day contractual delinquencies as of September 30, 2020 totaled $49.9 million, or 4.7% of net finance receivables, compared to 6.5% in the prior-year period. As of September 30, 2020, approximately 40% of the company’s total portfolio had been originated since April 2020, the vast majority of which was subject to enhanced credit standards deployed following the outset of the pandemic.

  • In September 2020, 2.1% of customer accounts were renewed or deferred under internal borrower assistance programs, which is lower than the average of 2.2% over the 12 months preceding the pandemic.

  • General and administrative expenses for the third quarter of 2020 were $43.8 million, an increase of $3.6 million, or 8.9%, from the prior-year period. The year-over-year increase in expenses was primarily due to the following:

    • $0.8 million of non-operating severance expense to adjust the company’s workforce and reposition the business for future growth; the savings will be used to fund the company’s omni-channel and digital investments.

    • $0.9 million less in deferred loan origination costs, which increased personnel expense from the prior-year period.

    • $0.9 million in additional marketing expense to support growth initiatives.

    • $0.8 million of incremental costs related to net new branches that opened since the prior-year period.

  • The operating expense ratio (annualized general and administrative expenses as a percentage of average net finance receivables) for the third quarter of 2020 was 17.0%, an increase of 150 basis points compared to the prior-year period. The expenses identified above impacted the operating expense ratio by 130 basis points in the third quarter of 2020 compared to the prior-year period.

  • In September 2020, the company closed its fourth asset-backed securitization, a $180 million note issuance with a weighted-average coupon of 2.85%.

  • As of September 30, 2020, the company had total unused capacity on its revolving credit facilities of $507 million, subject to the borrowing base, and available liquidity of $193 million, including unrestricted cash on hand and immediate availability to draw down cash from its revolving credit facilities.

Quarterly Dividend and Share Repurchase Program

Regional’s Board of Directors has approved the initiation of a quarterly dividend of $0.20 per common share. The initial dividend will be paid on December 4, 2020 to shareholders of record as of the close of business on November 17, 2020. The declaration and payment of any future dividend will be subject to the discretion of Regional’s Board of Directors and will depend on a variety of factors, including the company’s financial condition and results of operations.

Regional’s Board of Directors has also authorized a new share repurchase program allowing for the repurchase of up to $30 million of its outstanding common stock. The authorization is effective immediately and will continue through October 22, 2022.

Stock repurchases under the share repurchase program may be made in the open market at prevailing market prices, through privately negotiated transactions, or through other structures in accordance with applicable federal securities laws, at times and in amounts as management deems appropriate. The timing and the amount of any common stock repurchases will be determined by the company’s management based on its evaluation of market conditions, the company’s liquidity needs, legal and contractual requirements and restrictions (including covenants in the company’s credit agreements), share price, and other factors. Repurchases of common stock may be made under a Rule 10b5-1 plan, which would permit common stock to be repurchased when the company might otherwise be precluded from doing so under insider trading laws. The repurchase program does not obligate the company to purchase any particular number of shares and may be suspended, modified, or discontinued at any time without prior notice.

Liquidity and Capital Resources

As of September 30, 2020, the company had net finance receivables of $1.1 billion and outstanding long-term debt of $700.1 million ($698.3 million of outstanding debt and $1.8 million of interest payable), consisting of:

  • $228.5 million on its $640.0 million senior revolving credit facility,

  • $31.0 million on its $125.0 million revolving warehouse credit facility, and

  • $440.6 million through its asset-backed securitizations.

The company’s unused capacity on its revolving credit facilities (subject to the borrowing base) was $507 million, or 66.2%, as of September 30, 2020.

The company had a funded debt-to-equity ratio of 2.6 to 1.0 and a stockholders’ equity ratio of 26.3%, each as of September 30, 2020. On a non-GAAP basis, the company had a funded debt-to-tangible equity ratio of 2.7 to 1.0, as of September 30, 2020. Please refer to the reconciliations of non-GAAP measures to comparable GAAP measures included at the end of this press release.

Branch Network

As of September 30, 2020, the company’s branch network consisted of 368 locations. During the fourth quarter of 2020, subject to the changing economic environment, the company plans to open one de novo branch.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

In addition to financial measures presented in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP"), this press release contains certain non-GAAP financial measures. The company’s management utilizes non-GAAP measures as additional metrics to aid in, and enhance, its understanding of the company’s financial results. Tangible equity and funded debt-to-tangible equity ratio are non-GAAP measures that adjust GAAP measures to exclude intangible assets. Management uses these equity measures to evaluate and manage the company’s capital and leverage position. The company also believes that these equity measures are commonly used in the financial services industry and provide useful information to users of the company’s financial statements in the evaluation of its capital and leverage position.

This non-GAAP financial information should be considered in addition to, not as a substitute for or superior to, measures of financial performance prepared in accordance with GAAP. In addition, the company’s non-GAAP measures may not be comparable to similarly titled non-GAAP measures of other companies. The following tables provide a reconciliation of GAAP measures to non-GAAP measures.
