    Independent Bank Corporation Reports 2020 Third Quarter Results

    GRAND RAPIDS, Mich., Oct. 27, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Independent Bank Corporation (NASDAQ: IBCP) reported third quarter 2020 net income of $19.6 million, or $0.89 per diluted share, versus net income of $12.4 million, or $0.55 per diluted share, in the prior-year period. For the nine months ended September 30, 2020, the Company reported net income of $39.2 million, or $1.76 per diluted share, compared to net income of $32.6 million, or $1.40 per diluted share, in the prior-year period. The increase in third quarter and year-to-date 2020 earnings as compared to 2019 primarily reflects increases in net interest income and non-interest income that were partially offset by increases in the provision for loan losses, non-interest expense and income tax expense.Third quarter 2020 highlights include: * Increases in net income and diluted earnings per share of 57.4% and 61.8%, respectively, compared to 2019; * Return on average assets and return on average equity of 1.90% and 21.36%, respectively, compared to 1.42% and 14.64%, respectively, in 2019; * Net gains on mortgage loans of $20.2 million (up 255.9% over 2019) and total mortgage loan origination volume of $536.5 million; * Deposit net growth of $112.6 million (or 3.2%); * Continued strong asset quality metrics as evidenced by a low level of early stage (30 to 89 day) loan delinquencies (0.20% at September 30, 2020), net loan recoveries during the quarter, a low level of non-performing loans and non-performing assets and a significant decline in the level of loan forbearances; and * The payment of a 20 cent per share dividend on common stock on August 14, 2020.Year to date 2020 highlights include: * Increases in net income and diluted earnings per share of 20.3% and 25.7%, respectively, compared to 2019; * Return on average assets and return on average equity of 1.36% and 14.87%, respectively, compared to 1.28% and 12.84%, respectively, in 2019; * Net gains on mortgage loans of $46.7 million (up 243.5% over 2019) and total mortgage loan origination volume of $1.3 billion; * Deposit net growth of $561.0 million (or 18.5%); and * An increase in tangible common equity per share of common stock of 10.4%.Significant items impacting comparable quarterly and year to date 2020 and 2019 results include the following: * Changes in the fair value due to price of capitalized mortgage loan servicing rights (the “MSR Changes”) of a negative $1.1 million ($0.04 per diluted share, after taxes) and a negative $9.9 million ($0.35 per diluted share, after taxes) for the three- and nine-months ended September 30, 2020, respectively, as compared to a negative $2.2 million ($0.08 per diluted share, after taxes) and a negative $7.0 million ($0.24 per diluted share, after taxes) for the three- and nine-months ended September 30, 2019, respectively. * Approximately $0.64 million ($0.02 per diluted share, after taxes) and $1.46 million ($0.05 per diluted share, after taxes) of expenses related to a pending data processing conversion and bank branch closures (as described further below under “Operating Results”) for the three- and nine-months ended September 30, 2020, respectively.William B. (“Brad”) Kessel, the President and Chief Executive Officer of Independent Bank Corporation, commented: “We are pleased to report a very strong financial performance in the third quarter of 2020 as we continue to navigate the many challenges brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic. Our associates continued their amazing efforts during this quarter! We closed over one-half billion dollars of mortgage loans, helping our customers buy new homes or refinance existing mortgage loans. Total deposit balances grew by over one hundred million dollars. We assisted our customers in completing and submitting PPP forgiveness applications to the SBA, with over 14% of outstanding balances submitted. We continued to effectively operate our Business Continuity Plan to safely serve our customers and protect our employees. Finally, we maintained solid asset quality metrics during the third quarter of 2020. COVID-19 related loan forbearance balances decreased by 80.0% during the third quarter of 2020. As we look ahead to the last quarter of 2020 and beyond, we are mindful of the ongoing challenges from the COVID-19 pandemic, but we are confident of our continued ability to effectively respond to these challenges and remain optimistic about our future.”COVID-19 Pandemic UpdateThe Company continues to respond to the challenges arising from the COVID-19 pandemic. Our response was initially formulated during the month of February 2020 as we prepared our infrastructure to allow the majority of our associates to work remotely. In March 2020 we activated our Business Continuity Plan to protect our customers, employees and business. We will continue to take the necessary steps to serve our communities while doing our part to minimize the spread of COVID-19. The following is a brief description of our current initiatives: * Customer Safety and Service Levels – From mid-March 2020 to mid-June 2020 we limited our branch lobbies to appointment only and kept drive-through windows open. In mid-June 2020 our bank branch lobbies fully reopened. With the ability to use drive through service, ATMs or our electronic banking solutions there was minimal disruption to customers.   * Employee Safety – For employees that are in our bank branches servicing our customers, we have expanded sick and vacation time. All non-branch employees either have the option or are required to work remotely. We currently have approximately 38% of our total staff working remotely every day. We have installed “customer friendly” shields throughout our delivery network and have implemented a variety of other protective processes to promote the safety of our employees and put both customers and staff at ease.   * Loan Forbearances – We have forbearance programs in place to proactively work with our customers who have experienced financial difficulty due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Totals for these programs by loan type are presented in the table below under the caption “Asset Quality”. The level of these loans is down significantly after peaking in mid-June 2020, as many customers’ economic situations have improved, allowing them to pay their loans current or return to their original payment terms.   * U.S. Small Business Administration (“SBA”) Paycheck Protection Program (“PPP”) – We built an effective process to manage the high volume of applications that we received and processed. Customer demand for this program was extraordinary. As of September 30, 2020, we had 2,117 PPP loans outstanding with a total balance of $261.2 million. The average balance of PPP loans in the third quarter of 2020 was $261.5 million with an average yield of 3.04% (including the accretion of approximately $1.3 million of net fees). At September 30, 2020, there was $6.5 million of remaining unaccreted net fees related to PPP loans. These net fees are expected to be accreted into interest income over the next 15 months and the pace of such accretion will depend on payment activity (including loan forgiveness) within the PPP loan portfolio. As of September 30, 2020, 197 forgiveness applications (totaling $37.2 million) have been submitted to the SBA. Approvals of forgiveness applications by the SBA began to be received in October 2020.   * Federal Reserve Main Street Lending Program (“MSLP”) – We submitted an application and were approved as a MSLP lender. This program is designed to support small and medium-sized businesses that were in sound financial condition before the COVID-19 pandemic. U.S. businesses may be eligible for MSLP loans if they meet either of the following conditions: (1) the business has 15,000 employees or fewer; or (2) the business had 2019 revenues of $5 billion or less. Thus far there have been minimal loan applications and no loan approvals under the MSLP.Operating ResultsThe Company’s net interest income totaled $32.0 million during the third quarter of 2020, an increase of $1.1 million, or 3.5% from the year-ago period, and up $1.5 million, or 4.9%, from the second quarter of 2020. The Company’s tax equivalent net interest income as a percent of average interest-earning assets (the “net interest margin”) was 3.31% during the third quarter of 2020, compared to 3.76% in the year-ago period, and 3.36% in the second quarter of 2020. The year-over-year quarterly increase in net interest income is due to an increase in average interest-earning assets that was partially offset by a decline in the net interest margin. Average interest-earning assets were $3.89 billion in the third quarter of 2020, compared to $3.29 billion in the year ago quarter and $3.66 billion in the second quarter of 2020.For the first nine months of 2020, net interest income totaled $92.6 million, an increase of $0.7 million, or 0.8% from the first nine months of 2019. The Company’s net interest margin for the first nine months of 2020 was 3.42% compared to 3.83% in 2019. The increase in net interest income for the first nine months of 2020 compared to 2019 is also due to an increase in average interest-earning assets that was partially offset by a decline in the net interest margin.Due to the economic impact of COVID-19, the Federal Reserve has taken a variety of actions to stimulate the economy, including significantly lowering short-term interest rates. These actions have placed continued pressure on the Company’s net interest margin.Non-interest income totaled $27.0 million and $58.4 million, respectively, for the third quarter and first nine months of 2020, compared to $12.3 million and $32.1 million in the respective comparable year ago periods. These changes were primarily due to variances in mortgage banking related revenues (net gains on mortgage loans and mortgage loan servicing, net).Net gains on mortgage loans in the third quarters of 2020 and 2019, were approximately $20.2 million and $5.7 million, respectively. For the first nine months of 2020, net gains on mortgage loans totaled $46.7 million compared to $13.6 million in 2019. The increase in net gains on mortgage loans in 2020 was primarily due to a significant increase in mortgage loan sales volume (principally reflecting the rise in mortgage loan refinance levels), as well as improved profit margins on mortgage loan sales and fair value adjustments on the mortgage loan pipeline.Mortgage loan servicing, net, generated a loss of $0.6 million and $1.6 million in the third quarters of 2020 and 2019, respectively. For the first nine months of 2020 and 2019, mortgage loan servicing, net, generated a loss of $9.0 million and $4.7 million, respectively. The significant variances in mortgage loan servicing, net are primarily due to changes in the fair value of capitalized mortgage loan servicing rights associated with changes in mortgage loan interest rates and expected future prepayment levels. Mortgage loan servicing, net activity is summarized in the following table: Three Months EndedNine Months Ended  9/30/2020 9/30/2019 9/30/2020 9/30/2019          Mortgage loan servicing, net:(Dollars in thousands) Revenue, net$1,743 $1,583 $5,062 $4,574  Fair value change due to price(1,089)(2,163)(9,941)(7,036) Fair value change due to pay-downs(1,298)(982)(4,087)(2,222) Total$(644)$(1,562)$(8,966)$(4,684) Non-interest expenses totaled $33.6 million in the third quarter of 2020, compared to $27.8 million in the year-ago period. For the first nine months of 2020, non-interest expenses totaled $89.7 million versus $82.4 million in 2019. These year-over-year increases in non-interest expense are primarily due to increases in compensation and employee benefits, FDIC deposit insurance and conversion related expenses. Third quarter and year to date 2020 performance based compensation expense increased $5.1 million and $6.5 million, respectively, primarily as a result of actual performance relative to established management incentive plan targets. The third quarter and first nine months of 2020 includes $0.6 million and $1.0 million, respectively, of expenses related to the Company’s core data processing conversion that is in process (this conversion is expected to be completed in April 2021). The year-to-date 2020 non-interest expense also includes $0.4 million of expenses (primarily write-downs of fixed assets and leases) related to the closures of eight bank branch offices that occurred in June and July 2020.The Company recorded an income tax expense of $4.8 million and $9.2 million in the third quarter and first nine months of 2020, respectively. This compares to an income tax expense of $3.1 million and $8.0 million in the third quarter and first nine months of 2019, respectively. The changes in income tax expense primarily reflect changes in pre-tax earnings in 2020 relative to 2019.Asset QualityA breakdown of loan forbearance totals by loan type is as follows: Loan Type9/30/206/30/20% change vs. prior quarter $ (000’s)% of portfolio$ (000's)% of portfolio$ Commercial17$25,1051.9%386$210,48615.4%(95.6)%(88.1)% Mortgage197 32,0913.1%388 81,2127.8%(49.2)%(60.5)% Installment97 2,6310.5%280 7,4591.6%(65.4)%(64.7)% Total311$59,8272.1%1,054$299,15710.4%(70.5)%(80.0)%           Loans serviced for others416$66,2792.3%773$114,8394.2%(46.2)%(42.3)% Note: The % of portfolio is based on the dollar amount of forbearances to the total for the loan portfolio segment.A breakdown of non-performing loans(1) by loan type is as follows:Loan Type9/30/202012/31/20199/30/2019  (Dollars in thousands) Commercial$2,487 $1,377 $834  Mortgage 7,580  7,996  5,355  Installment 680  805  935  Subtotal 10,747  10,178  7,124  Less – government guaranteed loans 510  646  475  Total non-performing loans$10,237 $9,532 $6,649  Ratio of non-performing loans to total portfolio loans 0.36% 0.35% 0.24% Ratio of non-performing assets to total assets 0.28% 0.32% 0.24% Ratio of the allowance for loan losses to non-performing loans 349.43% 274.32% 393.26% > (1) Excludes loans that are classified as “troubled debt restructured” that are still performing.Non-performing loans have increased $0.7 million from December 31, 2019, due primarily to an increase in non-performing commercial loans.The provision for loan losses was an expense of $1.0 million and a credit of $0.3 million in the third quarters of 2020 and 2019, respectively. The provision for loan losses was an expense of $12.9 million and $1.0 million in the first nine months of 2020 and 2019, respectively. The level of the provision for loan losses in each period reflects the Company’s overall assessment of the allowance for loan losses, taking into consideration factors such as loan growth, loan mix, levels of non-performing and classified loans, loan forbearances and loan net charge-offs. In addition, the higher 2020 year-to-date provision for loan losses includes a $10.7 million (or 122.1%) increase in the qualitative/subjective portion of the allowance for loan losses. This increase principally reflects the unique challenges and economic uncertainty resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic and the potential impact on the loan portfolio that is not otherwise captured elsewhere within the allowance for loan losses. The Company recorded loan net recoveries of $0.3 million and loan net charge offs of $3.3 million in the third quarter and first nine months of 2020, respectively. This compares to loan net recoveries of $0.5 million and $0.2 million, in the third quarter and first nine months of 2019, respectively. At September 30, 2020, the allowance for loan losses totaled $35.8 million, or 1.25% of total portfolio loans, compared to $26.1 million, or 0.96% of total portfolio loans, at December 31, 2019. Excluding PPP loans and the remaining Traverse City State Bank acquired loan balances, the allowance for loan losses was equal to 1.44% of portfolio loans at September 30, 2020.Balance Sheet, Liquidity and CapitalTotal assets were $4.17 billion at September 30, 2020, an increase of $604.3 million from December 31, 2019. Loans, excluding loans held for sale, were $2.86 billion at September 30, 2020, compared to $2.73 billion at December 31, 2019. Deposits totaled $3.60 billion at September 30, 2020, an increase of $561.0 million from December 31, 2019. This increase is primarily due to growth in non-interest bearing, savings and interest-bearing checking and reciprocal deposit account balances.Cash and cash equivalents totaled $46.6 million at September 30, 2020, versus $65.3 million at December 31, 2019. Securities available for sale totaled $985.1 million at September 30, 2020, versus $518.4 million at December 31, 2019. The significant increase in securities available for sale is due to the deployment of funds generated from the growth in deposits.In May 2020, the Company issued $40.0 million of subordinated notes with a ten year maturity, a five year call option and an initial coupon interest rate (fixed for the first five years) of 5.95%.Total shareholders’ equity was $373.1 million at September 30, 2020, or 8.95% of total assets. Tangible common equity totaled $340.2 million at September 30, 2020, or $15.55 per share.

Under the terms of the 2020 share repurchase plan, the Company is authorized to buy back up to 1,120,000 shares, or approximately 5% of its outstanding common stock. The repurchase plan is authorized to last through December 31, 2020. During the first quarter of 2020, the Company repurchased 678,929 shares at a weighted average price of $20.30 per share. Due primarily to the economic uncertainty brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic, the Company has not purchased any of its shares since March 2020. However, primarily as a result of the Company’s strong financial performance and improved economic conditions, and dependent upon market and other factors, we may begin to purchase our shares under the 2020 share repurchase plan during the last two months of the year.Earnings Conference CallBrad Kessel, President and CEO and Gavin A.
