TUPELO, Jul 27, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE via COMTEX) -- TUPELO, Miss., July 27, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Renasant Corporation /zigman2/quotes/200892803/composite RNST -1.40% (the "Company") today announced earnings results for the second quarter of 2021. Net income for the second quarter of 2021 was $40.9 million, as compared to $20.1 million for the second quarter of 2020. Basic and diluted earnings per share ("EPS") were $0.73 and $0.72, respectively, for the second quarter of 2021, as compared to basic and diluted EPS of $0.36 for the second quarter of 2020.

Net income for the six months ending June 30, 2021, was $98.8 million, as compared to net income of $22.1 million for the same period in 2020. Basic and diluted EPS were $1.75 for the first six months of 2021, as compared to basic and diluted EPS of $0.39 for the first six months of 2020.

"Our team performed well during the second quarter, as we continued to increase our core deposits and net loans (excluding PPP) and maintained stable credit metrics," commented C. Mitchell Waycaster, Renasant President and Chief Executive Officer. "We are optimistic about future loan growth, despite the headwinds of elevated payoffs, because we believe we operate in a number of dynamic markets that provide a variety of opportunities for new business. As we move forward, we are focused on efficiency gains from both revenue and expense initiatives that have been implemented."

Impact of Certain Expenses and Charges
From time to time, the Company incurs expenses and charges with respect to which management is unable to accurately predict when these expenses or charges will be incurred or, when incurred, the amount of such expenses or charges. The following tables present the impact of these expenses and charges on reported EPS for the periods listed. The "COVID-19 related expenses" line item primarily consists of (a) employee overtime and employee benefit accruals directly related to the Company's response to both the COVID-19 pandemic itself and federal legislation enacted to address the pandemic, such as the CARES Act, and (b) expenses associated with supplying branches with protective equipment and sanitation supplies (such as floor markings and cautionary signage for branches, face coverings and hand sanitizer) and more frequent and rigorous branch cleaning.

PPP loans benefited net interest margin and loan yield by 15 basis points and 14 basis points, respectively, in the second quarter of 2021, and 12 basis points and 8 basis points, respectively, in the first half of 2021. Increased liquidity has continued to add pressure to net interest margin in recent quarters. The Company has aggressively lowered interest rates on interest bearing deposits, and it continues to evaluate options to mitigate the pressure on net interest margin.

The impact from interest income collected on problem loans and purchase accounting adjustments on loans to total interest income on loans held for investment, loan yield and net interest margin is shown in the following tables for the periods presented (in thousands):

Noninterest income for the second quarter of 2021 was $47.6 million, as compared to $81.0 million for the first quarter of 2021 and $64.2 million for the second quarter of 2020, driven largely by the decline in mortgage banking income discussed below. Noninterest income for the first six months of 2021 was $128.6 million, as compared to $101.7 million for the same period in 2020.

In mortgage banking, the Company's interest rate lock volume was $1.53 billion in the second quarter of 2021 and $3.26 billion for the first half of the year. Despite continued strong production, mortgage banking income decreased during the second quarter of 2021 as gain on sale margins compressed. The following tables present the components of mortgage banking income for the periods presented (in thousands):

Mortgage servicing loss, net (2,878 ) (1,023 )
MSR valuation adjustment 13,561 (14,522 )
Mortgage banking income, net $ 71,586 $ 61,025

The decline in mortgage banking income during the second quarter of 2021 was partially offset by increases in many of the Company's other fee income categories, including service charges on deposits, wealth management and insurance, as compared to the first quarter of 2021 and the second quarter of 2020.

Noninterest expense was $108.8 million for the second quarter of 2021, as compared to $115.9 million for the first quarter of 2021 and $118.3 million for the second quarter of 2020. Noninterest expense for the first six months of 2021 was $224.7 million, as compared to $233.3 million for the same period in 2020. The decrease quarter over quarter in 2021 is primarily related to a decrease in salaries and employee benefits, which was driven by a lower incentive compensation expense recognized during the quarter and cost savings realized from the voluntary early retirement program offered during the fourth quarter of 2020. In the second quarter of 2021, the Company received benefit from a one-time state tax credit investment. The $3.1 million investment was fully amortized in other noninterest expense, and the credit of $3.4 million reduced income taxes for the quarter.

Asset Quality Metrics
At June 30, 2021, the Company's credit quality metrics remained strong. Loans on deferred payment, as offered through the Company's loan deferral program, established in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, continue to decline and as of June 30, 2021, approximately 0.2% of the Company's loan portfolio (excluding PPP loans) was on deferral, down from approximately 1.5% as of December 31, 2020.

The table below shows nonperforming assets, which include nonperforming loans (loans 90 days or more past due and nonaccrual loans) and other real estate owned, as well as early stage delinquencies (loans 30-89 days past due), and related financial ratios, for the periods presented (in thousands):

Statements preceded by, followed by or that otherwise include the words "believes," "expects," "projects," "anticipates," "intends," "estimates," "plans," "potential," "possible," "may increase," "may fluctuate," "will likely result," and similar expressions, or future or conditional verbs such as "will," "should," "would" and "could," are generally forward-looking in nature and not historical facts. Forward-looking statements include information about the Company's future financial performance, business strategy, projected plans and objectives and are based on the current beliefs and expectations of management. The Company's management believes these forward-looking statements are reasonable, but they are all inherently subject to significant business, economic and competitive risks and uncertainties, many of which are beyond the Company's control.

Actual results may differ from those indicated or implied in the forward-looking statements, and such differences may be material. Prospective investors are cautioned that any forward-looking statements are not guarantees of future performance and involve risks and uncertainties and, accordingly, investors should not place undue reliance on these forward-looking statements, which speak only as of the date they are made.

Important factors currently known to management that could cause our actual results to differ materially from those in forward-looking statements include the following: (i) the continued impact of the COVID-19 pandemic (and variants thereof) and related governmental response measures on the U.S. economy and the economies of the markets in which we operate; (ii) the Company's ability to efficiently integrate acquisitions into its operations, retain the customers of these businesses, grow the acquired operations and realize the cost savings expected from an acquisition to the extent and in the timeframe anticipated by management; (iii) the effect of economic conditions and interest rates on a national, regional or international basis; (iv) timing and success of the implementation of changes in operations to achieve enhanced earnings or effect cost savings; (v) competitive pressures in the consumer finance, commercial finance, insurance, financial services, asset management, retail banking, mortgage lending and auto lending industries; (vi) the financial resources of, and products available from, competitors; (vii) changes in laws and regulations as well as changes in accounting standards; (viii) changes in policy by regulatory agencies; (ix) changes in the securities and foreign exchange markets; (x) the Company's potential growth, including its entrance or expansion into new markets, and the need for sufficient capital to support that growth; (xi) changes in the quality or composition of the Company's loan or investment portfolios, including adverse developments in borrower industries or in the repayment ability of individual borrowers; (xii) an insufficient allowance for credit losses as a result of inaccurate assumptions; (xiii) general economic, market or business conditions, including the impact of inflation; (xiv) changes in demand for loan products and financial services; (xv) concentration of credit exposure; (xvi) changes or the lack of changes in interest rates, yield curves and interest rate spread relationships; (xvii) increased cybersecurity risk, including potential network breaches, business disruptions or financial losses; (xviii) civil unrest, natural disasters, epidemics and other catastrophic events in the Company's geographic area; (xix) the impact, extent and timing of technological changes; and (xx) other circumstances, many of which are beyond management's control.

Management believes that the assumptions underlying the Company's forward-looking statements are reasonable, but any of the assumptions could prove to be inaccurate. Investors are urged to carefully consider the risks described in the Company's filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the "SEC") from time to time, including its most recent Annual Report on Form 10-K and subsequent Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q, which are available at www.renasant.com and the SEC's website at www.sec.gov .

The Company undertakes no obligation, and specifically disclaims any obligation, to update or revise forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information or to reflect changed assumptions, the occurrence of unanticipated events or changes to future operating results over time, except as required by federal securities laws.

NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES:

In addition to results presented in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States of America (GAAP), this press release contains non-GAAP financial measures, namely, earnings, with exclusions, return on average tangible shareholders' equity, return on average tangible assets, the ratio of tangible equity to tangible assets (commonly referred to as the "tangible capital ratio"), tangible book value per share and the adjusted efficiency ratio. These non-GAAP financial measures adjust GAAP financial measures to exclude intangible assets and/or certain charges (such as, when applicable, COVID-19 related expenses, restructuring charges, debt prepayment penalties, swap termination charges and asset valuation adjustments) with respect to which the Company is unable to accurately predict when these charges will be incurred or, when incurred, the amount thereof. With respect to COVID-19 related expenses in particular, management added these expenses as a charge to exclude when calculating non-GAAP financial measures because the expenses included within this line item (as discussed earlier in this release) are readily quantifiable and possess the same characteristics with respect to management's inability to accurately predict the timing or amount thereof as the other charges excluded when calculating non-GAAP financial measures. Management uses these non-GAAP financial measures when evaluating capital utilization and adequacy. In addition, the Company believes that these non-GAAP financial measures facilitate the making of period-to-period comparisons and are meaningful indicators of its operating performance, particularly because these measures are widely used by industry analysts for companies with merger and acquisition activities. Also, because intangible assets such as goodwill and the core deposit intangible and charges such as restructuring charges and COVID-19 related expenses can vary extensively from company to company and, as to intangible assets, are excluded from the calculation of a financial institution's regulatory capital, the Company believes that the presentation of this non-GAAP financial information allows readers to more easily compare the Company's results to information provided in other regulatory reports and the results of other companies. Reconciliations of these non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures are included in the tables at the end of this release under the caption "Reconciliation of GAAP to Non-GAAP."

None of the non-GAAP financial information that the Company has included in this release is intended to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for any measure prepared in accordance with GAAP. Investors should note that, because there are no standardized definitions for the calculations as well as the results, the Company's calculations may not be comparable to similarly titled measures presented by other companies. Also, there may be limits in the usefulness of these measures to investors. As a result, the Company encourages readers to consider its consolidated financial statements in their entirety and not to rely on any single financial measure.
