First Busey Announces 2019 First Quarter Earnings

CHAMPAIGN, Apr 23, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE via COMTEX) -- CHAMPAIGN, Ill., April 23, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- /zigman2/quotes/201332947/composite BUSE -4.00%

Message from our President & CEO

The Banc Ed Corp. merger leads to positive advances in the first quarter of 2019 from the comparable quarter of the prior year:

  • Net income of $25.5 million, as compared to $21.9 million

  • Net interest income of $68.4 million, as compared to $59.8 million

  • Portfolio loans of $6.52 billion, as compared to $5.53 billion

  • Tangible book value per common share of $14.53, as compared to $13.08

First Busey Corporation's ("First Busey" or the "Company") net income for the first quarter of 2019 was $25.5 million, or $0.48 per diluted common share, as compared to $25.3 million, or $0.51 per diluted common share, for the fourth quarter of 2018 and $21.9 million, or $0.45 per diluted common share, for the first quarter of 2018. Adjusted net income [1] for the first quarter of 2019 was $26.6 million, or $0.50 per diluted common share, as compared to $26.0 million, or $0.53 per diluted common share, for the fourth quarter of 2018 and $24.9 million, or $0.51 per diluted common share, for the first quarter of 2018.

The Company views certain non-operating items, including acquisition-related and restructuring charges, as adjustments to net income reported under generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP"). Non-operating pretax adjustments for the first quarter of 2019 were $1.2 million of expenses related to acquisitions and $0.3 million of expenses related to restructuring costs. The reconciliation of non-GAAP measures (including adjusted net income, adjusted return on average assets, adjusted net interest margin, adjusted efficiency ratio, tangible book value, tangible book value per share and return on average tangible common equity), which the Company believes facilitates the assessment of its financial results and peer comparability, is included in tabular form at the end of this release.

For the first quarter of 2019, annualized return on average assets and annualized return on average tangible common equity were 1.17% and 13.64%, respectively. Based on adjusted net income [1] , return on average assets was 1.22% and return on average tangible common equity was 14.25% for the first quarter of 2019.

Additional first quarter 2019 highlights include:

  • Non-interest income increased to $25.9 million as compared to $22.9 million for the fourth quarter 2018.

  • Busey Bank organic commercial loan growth of $60.4 million in first quarter of 2019.

  • Total deposits at March 31, 2019 grew to $7.76 billion driven by a linked-quarter increase of $326.6 million in non-interest bearing deposits.

  • Continued disciplined credit management resulted in non-performing loans as a percentage of total loans of 0.56% at March 31, 2019 as compared to 0.66% at December 31, 2018.

1 A Non-GAAP financial measure. See "Non-GAAP Financial Information" below for reconciliation.

On January 31, 2019, the Company completed its acquisition of The Banc Ed Corp. ("Banc Ed"), the holding company for TheBANK of Edwardsville ("TheBANK"). TheBANK, founded in 1868, is a privately held commercial bank headquartered in Edwardsville, Illinois. It is anticipated that TheBANK will be merged with and into First Busey's bank subsidiary, Busey Bank, in the fourth quarter of 2019.

Under the terms of the merger agreement with Banc Ed, at the effective time of the acquisition, each share of Banc Ed common stock issued and outstanding was converted into the right to receive 8.2067 shares of the Company's common stock and $111.53 in cash for each share of common stock of Banc Ed. The market value of the 6.7 million shares of First Busey common stock issued at the effective time of the acquisition was approximately $166.5 million based on First Busey's closing stock price of $24.76 on January 31, 2019.

Financial results for the first quarter of 2019 were significantly impacted by the Banc Ed acquisition, resetting the baseline for financial performance in future quarters in a multitude of positive ways. At the date of the merger, the fair value of TheBANK's total assets was $1.79 billion, the fair value of total loans was $873.3 million, and the fair value of total deposits was $1.44 billion, which included $245.7 million of non-interest bearing deposits. Since the acquisition date, TheBANK's net income of $3.6 million had a positive impact on the first quarter of 2019.

The Banc Ed transaction fits with our acquisition strategy as the addition of TheBANK will grow the Company's current geographic footprint, allowing the Company to serve customers across a broader portion of the St. Louis Missouri-Illinois Metropolitan Statistical Area and will significantly add to the Company's wealth management business. We are pleased to welcome our Banc Ed colleagues into the Busey family and feel confident that we are well positioned for growth and profitability in 2019.

Busey recently received its fourth consecutive honor as one of the 2019 Best Places to Work in Illinois. This awards program--voted by associates and hosted by Best Companies Group and Daily Herald Business Ledger--identifies and recognizes the best places of employment in Illinois, benefiting the state's economy, workforce and businesses. In addition, for the first time Busey was honored as a 2019 Best Place to Work in Indiana by Best Companies Group and the Indiana Chamber of Commerce and in Missouri as one of the 2019 Best Places to Work in St. Louis by Quantum Workplace and St. Louis Business Journal.

As we acknowledge our accomplishments and continue growing forward, we are grateful for the opportunity to consistently earn the business of our customers, based on the contributions of our talented associates and the loyal support of our shareholders.

President & Chief Executive Officer
First Busey Corporation

Balance Sheet Growth

At March 31, 2019, portfolio loans were $6.52 billion, as compared to $5.57 billion as of December 31, 2018 and $5.53 billion as of March 31, 2018. The March 31, 2019 increase in portfolio loans includes $874.1 million of TheBANK loans combined with organic Busey Bank loan growth, primarily in Missouri. Average portfolio loans increased 11.3% to $6.13 billion for the first quarter of 2019 compared to $5.51 billion for the first quarter of 2018.

Average interest-earning assets for the first quarter of 2019 increased to $8.09 billion compared to $7.17 billion for the fourth quarter of 2018 and $6.98 billion for the first quarter of 2018.

Total deposits were $7.76 billion at March 31, 2019, an increase from $6.25 billion at December 31, 2018 and $6.33 billion at March 31, 2018 TheBANK's total deposits were $1.47 billion at March 31, 2019, which included $253.9 million of non-interest bearing deposits. The Company remains funded primarily through core deposits with significant market share in its core markets.

Net Interest Margin and Net Interest Income

Net interest income was $68.4 million in the first quarter of 2019 compared to $60.5 million in the fourth quarter of 2018 and $59.8 million in the first quarter of 2018. Higher yields from loan production partially offset increases in funding costs. Funding costs have increased primarily due to resetting of time deposit rates to reflect market increases and additional borrowings in conjunction with the Banc Ed acquisition. Net purchase accounting accretion and amortization included in interest income and interest expense was $3.0 million for the first quarter of 2019, an increase from $1.9 million for the fourth quarter of 2018 and decrease from $3.4 million for the first quarter of 2018.

Net interest margin for the first quarter of 2019 was 3.46%, compared to 3.38% for the fourth quarter of 2018 and 3.51% for the first quarter of 2018. Adjusted net interest margin [1] for the first quarter of 2019 was 3.31%, compared to 3.27% for the fourth quarter of 2018 but steady with the first quarter of 2018.

Asset Quality

Non-performing loans totaled $36.6 million as of March 31, 2019 and December 31, 2018 compared to $33.6 million as of March 31, 2018. Non-performing loans were 0.56% of total portfolio loans as of March 31, 2019, compared to 0.66% as of December 31, 2018 and 0.61% as of March 31, 2018.

The Company recorded net charge-offs of $1.8 million for the first quarter of 2019. The allowance for loan loss as a percentage of portfolio loans was 0.78% at March 31, 2019 as compared to 0.91% at December 31, 2018 and 0.95% at March 31, 2018. The decline in the allowance coverage ratio in the first quarter of 2019 is primarily attributed to the Banc Ed acquisition. Acquired loans are initially recorded at their acquisition date fair value so a separate allowance is not initially recognized. An allowance is recorded subsequent to acquisition to the extent the reserve requirement exceeds the recorded fair value adjustment. The Company recorded provision for loan losses of $2.1 million in the first quarter of 2019, compared to $0.4 million in the fourth quarter of 2018 and $1.0 million in the first quarter of 2018.

Fee-based Businesses

Revenues from trust fees, commissions and brokers' fees, and remittance processing activities represented 49.4% of the Company's non-interest income for the quarter ended March 31, 2019, providing a balance to revenue from traditional banking activities.

Trust fees and commissions and brokers' fees were positively impacted as we built upon recent acquisitions and expanded market share, partially offset by a decline in farm management brokerage income due to timing of land sales. Trust fees and commissions and brokers' fees were $9.0 million for the first quarter of 2019, an increase from $7.5 million for the fourth quarter 2018 and from $8.6 million for the first quarter of 2018. Net income from the wealth management segment was $2.6 million for the first quarter of 2019 compared to $2.0 million in the fourth quarter of 2018 and $2.8 million in the first quarter of 2018. First Busey's wealth management division ended the first quarter of 2019 with $8.89 billion in assets under care.

Remittance processing revenue from the Company's subsidiary, FirsTech, of $3.8 million for the first quarter of 2019 was steady compared to the fourth quarter of 2018 and increased from $3.4 million for the first quarter of 2018. The FirsTech operating segment generated net income of $1.0 million for the first quarter of 2019.

The mortgage line of business generated $1.9 million of revenue in the first quarter of 2019, an increase compared to $1.1 million of revenue in the fourth quarter of 2018 and $1.6 million of revenue in the first quarter of 2018, following a long period of restructuring and additional revenue from TheBANK.

Operating Efficiency

The efficiency ratio was 57.99% for the quarter ended March 31, 2019 compared to 56.57% for the quarter ended December 31, 2018 and 59.80% for the quarter ended March 31, 2018. The adjusted efficiency ratio [3] was 56.43% for the quarter ended March 31, 2019, 55.49% for the quarter ended December 31, 2018, and 55.54% for the quarter ended March 31, 2018.

Specific areas of non-interest expense are as follows:

  • Salaries, wages and employee benefits were $32.3 million in the first quarter of 2019, an increase from $27.5 million in the fourth quarter of 2018 and $28.8 million from the first quarter of 2018. Banc Ed added 318 full time equivalents ("FTE") at March 31, 2019, increasing the March 31, 2019 FTE to 1,589 compared to 1,270 at December 31, 2018 and 1,278 at March 31, 2018.

  • Data processing expense in the first quarter of 2019 of $4.4 million increased compared to $4.0 million in the fourth quarter of 2018 and $4.3 million in the first quarter of 2018. Variances are related to payment of deconversion expenses and data processing related to TheBANK.

Capital Strength

The Company's strong capital levels, coupled with its earnings, has allowed First Busey to provide a steady return to its stockholders through dividends. The Company will pay a cash dividend on April 26, 2019 of $0.21 per common share to stockholders of record as of April 19, 2019. The Company has consistently paid dividends to its common stockholders since the bank holding company was organized in 1980.

As of March 31, 2019, the Company continued to exceed the capital adequacy requirements necessary to be considered "well-capitalized" under applicable regulatory guidelines. The Company's tangible stockholders' common equity [3] ("TCE") increased to $826.2 million at March 31, 2019, compared to $703.0 million at December 31, 2018 and $646.9 million at March 31, 2018. TCE represented 9.00% of tangible assets at March 31, 2019, compared to 9.49% at December 31, 2018 and 8.64% at March 31, 2018. [3 ]

Non-GAAP Financial Information

This press release contains certain financial information determined by methods other than GAAP. These measures include adjusted net income, adjusted return on average assets, adjusted net interest margin, adjusted efficiency ratio, tangible common equity, and tangible common equity to tangible assets. Management uses these non-GAAP measures, together with the related GAAP measures, in analysis of the Company's performance and in making business decisions. Management also uses these measures for peer comparisons.

A reconciliation to what management believes to be the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures - net income in the case of adjusted net income and adjusted return on average assets, total net interest income, total non-interest income and total non-interest expense in the case of adjusted efficiency ratio, total stockholders' equity in the case of the tangible book value per share - appears below. The Company believes the adjusted measures are useful for investors and management to understand the effects of certain non-recurring non-interest items and provide additional perspective on the Company's performance over time as well as comparison to the Company's peers.

These non-GAAP disclosures have inherent limitations and are not audited. They should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for the results reported in accordance with GAAP, nor are they necessarily comparable to non-GAAP performance measures that may be presented by other companies. Tax effected numbers included in these non-GAAP disclosures are based on estimated statutory rates.
