  • Book value per share was $19.52 as of September 30, 2020, compared to $18.64 per share as of June 30, 2020 and $16.61 per share as of September 30, 2019.

  • On September 29, 2020, the Company completed an issuance of $50 million of subordinated notes.

Curtis Griffith, South Plains’ Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, commented, “I am very pleased with our performance as the Bank’s operations continue to run smoothly and our customers have largely weathered the uncertain economic environment to date. Our decision to allow our borrowers to modify their loans to interest only payments early in the pandemic has proven to be a sound one as this allowed our customers to build cash and better manage their businesses. Importantly, we have experienced a sharp decline in active modifications related to COVID-19 during the third quarter, with only 5.4% of our portfolio remaining in an active modification versus 19.9% of the portfolio at June 30, 2020. While we are optimistic that our local economies are improving with the pace of business accelerating, we continue to manage our loan portfolio and reserves conservatively having recorded a $6.1 million provision for loan loss in the third quarter of 2020, which was largely qualitative, and compares favorably to the $13.1 million provision in the second quarter of 2020. At quarter end, our allowance for loan loss was 2.01%.”

Mr. Griffith continued, “We also experienced strong revenue growth in the quarter as the investments that we have made in our mortgage business are generating strong results. Over the last year, we have actively recruited seasoned mortgage teams that have been instrumental in driving market share gains in the builder and purchase markets. We have also maintained our expense structure in this business as volumes have grown which has contributed to strong margin gains and insulates us against the eventual decline in refinance volumes. Turning to capital, we opportunistically issued $50 million of fixed-to-floating rate subordinated notes, that qualify as Tier 2 capital for regulatory purposes, in the quarter at an attractive interest rate which will position the Company to take advantage of any dislocations that may occur in the market while providing protection if the pandemic were to severely worsen, which is not our expectation. We continue to be pleased with our acquisition of West Texas State Bank this past year and see M&A as an attractive strategy to further expand our geographic footprint in West Texas.”

Results of Operations, Quarter Ended September 30, 2020

Net Interest Income

Net interest income was $31.3 million for the third quarter of 2020, compared to $26.6 million for the third quarter of 2019 and $30.4 million for the second quarter of 2020.

Interest income was $34.5 million for the third quarter of 2020, compared to $33.7 million for the third quarter of 2019 and $34.0 million for the second quarter of 2020. Interest and fees on loans increased by $1.1 million from the third quarter of 2019 due to growth of $414.3 million in average loans, primarily from the Company’s acquisition of West Texas State Bank (“WTSB”) as well as the Small Business Administration (“SBA”) Paycheck Protection Program (“PPP”) loans that were originated largely in the second quarter of 2020, partially offset by a decrease of 63 basis points in non-PPP loan rates due to the decline in the interest rate environment experienced in the first quarter of 2020. Interest income increased slightly in the third quarter of 2020 from the second quarter of 2020 due to the additional interest and fees on PPP loans. The PPP loans yielded 3.00% during the third quarter of 2020, which includes accretion of the related SBA lender fees for processing PPP loans during the quarter. As of September 30, 2020, the Company has originated approximately 2,100 PPP loans, totaling $218 million, and has received $7.8 million in PPP related SBA fees. These fees are deferred and then accreted into interest income over the life of the applicable loans. During the third quarter of 2020, the Company recognized $1.1 million in PPP related SBA fees. The Company expects that the majority of PPP loans will be forgiven over the next several quarters. At September 30, 2020, there is $6.1 million of deferred fees that have not been accreted to income.

Interest expense was $3.2 million for the third quarter of 2020, compared to $7.1 million for the third quarter of 2019 and $3.6 million for the second quarter of 2020. The decrease from the third quarter of 2019 was primarily due to a decrease in the interest rate paid on interest-bearing liabilities of 91 basis points, partially offset by an increase of $303.4 million in average interest-bearing liabilities. The increase in average interest-bearing liabilities was largely due to the Company’s acquisition of WTSB as well as growth in deposits from PPP loan funding and other government stimulus payments and programs as well as organic growth. Additionally, the decrease in the rate paid on interest-bearing liabilities was the result of the decline in the overall rate environment experienced in the first quarter of 2020. The decrease in interest expense from the second quarter of 2020 was primarily due to a decrease in the interest rate paid on interest-bearing liabilities of 6 basis points and by a decrease of $28.3 million in average interest-bearing liabilities in the third quarter of 2020. The average cost of deposits was 34 basis points for the third quarter of 2020, representing a 64 basis point decrease from the third quarter of 2019 and a 5 basis point decrease from the second quarter of 2020. The decrease in average interest-bearing liabilities was primarily due to paying back $95.0 million in advances from the Federal Home Loan Bank of Dallas (“FHLB”), partially offset by organic growth of $41.3 million in average interest-bearing deposits.

The net interest margin was 3.82% for the third quarter of 2020, compared to 4.07% for the third quarter of 2019 and 3.79% for the second quarter of 2020.

Noninterest Income and Noninterest Expense

Noninterest income was $31.7 million for the third quarter of 2020, compared to $14.1 million for the third quarter of 2019 and $24.9 million for the second quarter of 2020. The increase in noninterest income for the third quarter of 2020 compared to the third quarter of 2019 was primarily due to growth of $14.4 million in mortgage banking activities revenue as a result of an additional $209.6 million in mortgage loan originations. Additionally, there was an increase in income from insurance activities of $2.2 million in the third quarter of 2020 related to recent acquisitions as well as the effect of adoption of the revenue recognition standard for quarterly reporting in 2020, which has delayed the recognition of revenue until later in the year as compared to previous years. The increase from the second quarter of 2020 was primarily due to growth of $3.5 million in mortgage banking activities revenue as a result of an additional $31.8 million in mortgage loan originations and an increase of $2.3 million in income from insurance activities.

Noninterest expense was $36.0 million for the third quarter of 2020, compared to $30.0 million for the third quarter of 2019 and $35.2 million for the second quarter of 2020. This increase in noninterest expense for the third quarter of 2020 compared to the third quarter of 2019 was primarily driven by a $5.5 million increase in personnel expense. This increase was predominately related to an additional $3.0 million in commissions paid on the higher volume of mortgage loan originations and personnel in the Bank’s branches in the Permian Basin that were acquired in the fourth quarter of 2019 through the Company’s acquisition of WTSB. The remaining other noninterest expenses increased $428,000, or 3.6%, which encompasses the additional variable mortgage expenses related to the growth in mortgage production and other operating expenses and core deposit intangible amortization from the acquisition of WTSB. The increase from the second quarter of 2020 was primarily the result of an additional $758,000 in commissions and higher other variable expenses as a result of increased mortgage production and insurance activities. This increase was partially offset by a recovery of $303,000 of legal expenses from the previously disclosed settlement of a lawsuit in September 2020 as well as other expense reductions.

Loan Portfolio and Composition

Loans held for investment were $2.29 billion as of September 30, 2020, compared to $2.33 billion as of June 30, 2020 and $1.96 billion as of September 30, 2019. The $43.5 million decrease during the third quarter of 2020 as compared to the second quarter of 2020 was primarily the result of paydowns of $10.1 million in non-residential consumer loans and $8.0 million in direct energy loans as well as several large commercial real estate loans that paid off early. As of September 30, 2020, loans held for investment increased $325.6 million from September 30, 2019, largely attributable to the PPP loans primarily funded in the second quarter of 2020 and the WTSB acquisition in the fourth quarter of 2019.

Agricultural production loans were $133.9 million as of September 30, 2020, compared to $131.5 million as of June 30, 2020 and $166.8 million as of September 30, 2019. The Company did not experience the typical historical increase in seasonal fundings on these agricultural production loans during the third quarter of 2020, primarily as a result of drought conditions or damaged crops and where the borrower received crop insurance proceeds to pay down the loans.

Deposits and Borrowings

Deposits totaled $2.94 billion as of September 30, 2020, compared to $2.95 billion as of June 30, 2020 and $2.29 billion as of September 30, 2019. Deposits decreased $4.0 million in the third quarter of 2020 from June 30, 2020. As of September 30, 2020, deposits increased $657.8 million from September 30, 2019. The increase in deposits since September 30, 2019 is primarily a result of organic growth as well as the assumption of deposits from the WTSB acquisition in the fourth quarter of 2019.

Noninterest-bearing deposits were $906.1 million as of September 30, 2020, compared to $940.9 million as of June 30, 2020 and $556.2 million as of September 30, 2019. Noninterest-bearing deposits represented 30.8%, 31.9%, and 24.3% of total deposits as of September 30, 2020, June 30, 2020, and September 30, 2019, respectively. The decrease in noninterest-bearing deposit balances at September 30, 2020 compared to June 30, 2020 was largely the result of customer quarterly estimated tax payments that were extended until July 15, 2020.

The Bank has utilized its lines of credit with FHLB and the Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas to supplement funding for origination of PPP loans as needed. This included borrowing $75.0 million from FHLB for a three month term. This borrowing matured in July 2020 and was repaid in full.

On September 29, the Company issued $50.0 million in 10 year fixed-to-floating rate subordinated notes on September 29, 2020. These notes bear interest at a fixed rate of 4.50% for the first five years, and the interest rate will reset quarterly thereafter to the then current three-month Secured Overnight Financing Rate, as published by the Federal Reserve Bank of New York, plus 438 basis points.

Asset Quality

As part of the Bank’s efforts to support its customers and protect the Bank as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Bank has offered varying forms of loan modifications including 90-day payment deferrals, 6-month interest only terms, or in certain select cases periods of longer than 6 months of interest only, to provide borrowers relief. As of September 30, 2020, total active loan modifications attributed to COVID-19 were $124.0 million, or 5.4% of the Company’s loan portfolio, down from $464.4 million, or 19.9% of the Company’s loan portfolio, at June 30, 2020. The modified loan breakdown as of September 30, 2020 is: 36% are 6 months interest only, 7% are 90 day payment deferrals on commercial customers, 57% are interest only periods longer than 6 months, primarily in the hotel portfolio, and less than 1% are payment deferrals of one to four months on consumer loans.

The provision for loan losses recorded for the third quarter of 2020 was $6.1 million, compared to $420,000 for the third quarter of 2019 and $13.1 million for the second quarter of 2020. The increase in the provision for loan losses in the third quarter of 2020 compared to the third quarter of 2019 is a result of economic effects from COVID-19, the decline in the oil and gas industry, and the change in credit quality and increase in nonperforming assets. The decrease from the second quarter of 2020 is a result of a modest improvement in the economy as well as a decline in the amount of loans that are actively under a modification. There is continued uncertainty from COVID-19 and the full extent of the impact on the economy and the Bank’s customers is unknown at this time. Accordingly, additional provisions for loan losses may be necessary in future periods.

The allowance for loan losses to loans held for investment was 2.01% as of September 30, 2020, compared to 1.74% as of June 30, 2020 and 1.23% as of September 30, 2019. The allowance for loan losses to non-PPP loans held for investment was 2.22% as of September 30, 2020.

The nonperforming assets to total assets ratio as of September 30, 2020 was 0.46%, compared to 0.33% as of June 30, 2020 and 0.31% at September 30, 2019. The increase in the third quarter of 2020 related to a $5.4 million relationship in the transportation industry that was put on nonaccrual. The loans have performed as agreed but were placed on nonaccrual status due to stress in the borrower’s industry. The borrower paid off $2.1 million of this debt in October 2020.

Annualized net charge-offs were 0.10 % for the third quarter of 2020, compared to 0.27% for the second quarter of 2020 and 0.08% for the third quarter of 2019.
