Adjusted PTPP earnings* were $33.4 million for the first quarter, up 8.1% from Q4 2019

Recorded provisions for credit losses of $29.6 million; building ACL to 1.95% of loans HFI

NASHVILLE, Tenn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- FB Financial Corporation (the “Company”) (NYSE: FBK), parent company of FirstBank, reported net income of $0.7 million, or $0.02 per diluted common share, for the first quarter of 2020, compared to net income of $19.6 million, or $0.62 per diluted common share, for the first quarter of 2019. Following the adoption of CECL, the forecasted impact of COVID-19 pandemic crisis resulted in provisions for credit losses and unfunded commitments totaling $29.6 million in the first quarter compared to $3.0 million in the fourth quarter of 2019 and $1.4 million in the first quarter of 2019. The Company reported adjusted pre-tax, pre-provision ("PTPP") earnings of $33.4 million this quarter, reflecting increases of 8.1% and 16.8% from $30.9 million and $28.6 million in the first and fourth quarters of 2019, respectively.

President and Chief Executive Officer, Christopher T. Holmes stated, “The first quarter of 2020 will be remembered as a defining time for our Company. Our associates responded to the challenges of tornadoes devastating our middle Tennessee market and the COVID-19 pandemic by taking care of each other and our customers in ways that showed true courage and compassion. Over the last five weeks, we have approved and funded over 1,500 Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) loans totaling $267.0 million for small businesses, preserving jobs for approximately 29,000 employees in our communities. Additionally, we reached out to our customers and deferred loan payments for over 1,400 consumer and businesses totaling $680.0 million. I have been amazed by the performance and have never been more proud to be part of the FirstBank team.”

Holmes commented further, “In addition to responding to these challenges, we positioned the Company for the road ahead by reinforcing an already strong balance sheet with increased liquidity, increased credit reserves and solid capital positions. We also completed our merger with Farmers National Bank of Scottsville (KY) ("Farmers National") and announced our pending merger with Franklin Financial Network, Inc. We have continued our integration and conversion plans for Farmers National, which we plan to convert later this quarter, and Franklin Financial, which we believe is on track for closing during the third quarter of this year.”

Controlled Loan Growth; While Building Liquidity

The Company grew loans (HFI) by $158.4 million to $4.57 billion during the first quarter of 2020, or 14.4% annualized, while average loans (HFI) increased 10.2% annualized from last quarter, including $175.4 million from the Farmers National merger. Organic loan growth was lower than expected this quarter and was impacted by unexpected prepayments early in the quarter and the pandemic crisis later in the quarter. Contractual loan yields decreased from 5.27% in the fourth quarter to 5.14% in the first quarter, reflecting the impact of the lower interest rate environment.

During the first quarter of 2020, the Company grew deposits by $442.0 million to $5.38 billion, reflecting annualized quarterly growth of 36.0% and year over year growth of 25.0%, including $209.5 million from the Farmers National merger and an increase of $109.6 million in mortgage servicing related and wholesale/other deposits. The Company reduced its cost of deposits this quarter to 0.94% from 1.02% in the fourth quarter of 2019. Loans (HFI) to deposits decreased to 85.0% this quarter from 89.4% last quarter.

Additionally, during the quarter, investment securities increased $75.9 million to $767.6 million, or 11.5% of total assets, primarily from $50.6 million of investments acquired with Farmers National. Additionally, cash and cash equivalents increased $192.4 million to $425.1 million in light of the ongoing crisis to bolster the Company's overall liquidity.

The Company’s net interest income for the quarter was $56.2 million, representing a decrease from $57.7 million last quarter and an increase from $53.0 million for the first quarter of 2019. The Company’s net interest margin (“NIM”) was 3.92% for the first quarter of 2020, compared to 4.12% and 4.61% for the fourth quarter of 2019 and the first quarter of 2019, respectively. Accretion related to purchased loans and nonaccrual interest contributed 13 basis points to the NIM in the first quarter of 2020 compared to 21 and 17 basis points for the fourth quarter of 2019 and the first quarter of 2019, respectively. Overall, the NIM for the first quarter of 2020 was impacted by a 27 basis point decline in the yield on interest-earning assets offset by a 11 basis point decline in the rate on interest-bearing liabilities over last quarter. Additionally, the increases in liquidity positions negatively impacted the NIM as yields were lower during the quarter on excess cash equivalents.

Holmes commented, “Our net interest margin was stable over the first two months of the quarter, but the 150 basis point cuts in March compressed our net interest margin. We expect the margin to decline in the second quarter as the interest rate cuts are fully reflected. We will continue repricing deposits in the coming months, with particular focus on maturing time deposits, reflecting the new interest rate environment.”

Noninterest Income Benefits from Mortgage Production

Noninterest income was $42.7 million for the first quarter of 2020, compared to $35.2 million for the fourth quarter of 2019 and $29.0 million for the first quarter of 2019. Mortgage banking income was $32.7 million for the first quarter of 2020, compared to $26.2 million for the fourth quarter of 2019 and $21.0 million for the first quarter of 2019.

During the quarter, the Company produced unseasonably strong results from the mortgage business driven by the lower interest rate environment. Interest rate lock commitment volume totaled $2.09 billion in the first quarter of 2020 compared to $1.08 billion in the fourth quarter of 2019 and $1.36 billion in the first quarter of 2019.

During the first quarter of 2020, the Company’s total mortgage pre-tax direct contribution was $8.0 million, compared to the $3.0 million contribution in the fourth quarter of 2019 and $0.7 million in the first quarter of 2019.

Holmes commented, “Our mortgage operations are benefiting from the current interest rate environment through strong refinance volumes as well as new purchase originations. We continue monitoring the overall liquidity of the mortgage markets and activities by the federal housing agencies on our servicing portfolio during these times of changing interest rates and volatile markets.”

Noninterest Expenses

Noninterest expense was $68.6 million for the first quarter of 2020, compared to $62.7 million for the fourth quarter of 2019 and $55.1 million for the first quarter of 2019. On an adjusted basis, noninterest expense was $65.5 million for the first quarter of 2020, $62.0 million for the fourth quarter of 2019, and $53.4 million for the first quarter of 2020. The linked quarter increase is primarily related to increased mortgage commissions and related expenses, typical first quarter employee benefit costs, and the addition of Farmers National during the quarter.

Holmes noted, “Noninterest expenses continue to reflect our disciplined and thoughtful approach as we continue balancing profitability, investment decisions and capital efficiency during these uncertain times.”

Asset Quality

Upon adoption of CECL effective January 1, 2020, the Company increased the allowance for credit losses (ACL) to $62.6 million, and recorded a reserve for unfunded commitments of $2.9 million, through a charge, net of taxes, to retained earnings of $25.0 million, and a reclass of credit discounts on previously classified purchased credit impaired loans of $0.6 million. This increase utilizes economic forecasts to estimate credit losses over the life of the loan portfolio. Upon adoption, the ACL increased to 1.42% of loans held for investment, and further increased to 1.95% of loans at March 31, 2020. During the first quarter of 2020, the Company recognized a provision for credit losses of $28.0 million, and a provision for unfunded commitments of $1.6 million, reflecting the impact of the declining economic forecasts related to the pandemic crisis. The provision also includes the CECL allowance for credit losses recorded in connection with the Farmers National merger of $2.9 million.

The Company’s net charge-offs to average loans were 0.19% for the first quarter compared to 0.30% in the fourth quarter of 2019 and 0.06% in the first quarter of 2019. The Company's nonperforming assets decreased at March 31, 2020, to 0.74% of total assets compared to 0.77% at December 31, 2019. Nonperforming loans were 0.68% of loans held for investment at March 31, 2020, compared to 0.60% at December 31, 2019. The slight increase was primarily related to the previously excluded purchased credit impaired loans from nonperforming loans in prior periods.

Holmes commented, “While our credit metrics continued to reflect strong credit quality during the first quarter, the impact of the pandemic crisis and the adoption of CECL led to increased provisions and building our ACL, which is reflective of the economic forecasts at the end of the quarter. We have taken actions with customers to offer deferred payments for up to 3 months to allow them to address their individual circumstances related to the crisis.”

Capital Well Positioned

“Our adjusted pre-tax, pre-provision earnings increased by 8.13% linked quarter and provided earnings to offset the increased provisions, while protecting capital, given the proposed CECL regulatory capital transition relief measures, as we navigate the impacts from the pandemic. Our current level of tangible common equity at 9.1% of tangible assets and our simple capital structure of common equity and minimal trust preferred securities, positions us well and gives us multiple capital options, including the continuation of quarterly dividend in the near term. Our regulatory capital levels remained stable given the regulatory capital transition relief for the adoption of CECL and CECL related provisions.” commented Holmes.

Summary

Holmes further commented, “We look forward to our Annual Shareholders Meeting later this week, which will be held virtually as previously announced. I am extremely proud of our associates as they have served each other, our customers and our communities under the most challenging of circumstances.”

FB Financial qualifies all forward-looking statements by these cautionary statements.

GAAP RECONCILIATION AND USE OF NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES

This Earnings Release contains certain financial measures that are not measures recognized under U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”) and therefore are considered non-GAAP financial measures. These non-GAAP financial measures include, without limitation, adjusted net income, adjusted diluted earnings per share, adjusted and unadjusted pre-tax pre-provision earnings, adjusted pre-tax pre-provision diluted earnings per share, adjusted and unadjusted pre-tax pre-provision earnings per share, core revenue, core noninterest expense and core noninterest income, core efficiency ratio (tax equivalent basis), Banking segment core efficiency ratio (tax equivalent basis), Mortgage segment core efficiency ratio (tax equivalent basis), adjusted mortgage contribution, adjusted return on average tangible common equity, adjusted pre-tax pre-provision return on average tangible common equity, adjusted return on average assets and equity, adjusted pre-tax pre-provision return on average assets and equity, and core total revenue. Each of these non-GAAP metrics excludes certain income and expense items that the Company’s management considers to be non-core/adjusted in nature. The Company refers to these non-GAAP measures as adjusted measures. The corresponding Supplemental Financial Information and Earnings Release Presentation also presents tangible assets, tangible common equity, tangible book value per common share, tangible common equity to tangible assets, return on tangible common equity, return on average tangible common equity and adjusted return on average tangible common equity. Each of these non-GAAP metrics excludes the impact of goodwill and other intangibles.

The Company’s management uses these non-GAAP financial measures in their analysis of the Company’s performance, financial condition and the efficiency of its operations as management believes such measures facilitate period-to-period comparisons and provide meaningful indications of its operating performance as they eliminate both gains and charges that management views as non-recurring or not indicative of operating performance. Management believes that these non-GAAP financial measures provide a greater understanding of ongoing operations and enhance comparability of results with prior periods as well as demonstrate the effects of significant non-core gains and charges in the current and prior periods. The Company’s management also believes that investors find these non-GAAP financial measures useful as they assist investors in understanding the Company’s underlying operating performance and in the analysis of ongoing operating trends. In addition, because intangible assets such as goodwill and other intangibles, and the other items excluded each vary extensively from company to company, the Company believes that the presentation of this information allows investors to more easily compare the Company’s results to the results of other companies. However, the non-GAAP financial measures discussed herein should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for the most directly comparable or other financial measures calculated in accordance with GAAP. Moreover, the manner in which the Company calculates the non-GAAP financial measures discussed herein may differ from that of other companies reporting measures with similar names. Investors should understand how such other banking organizations calculate their financial measures similar or with names similar to the non-GAAP financial measures the Company has discussed herein when comparing such non-GAAP financial measures. See the “Use of non-GAAP Financial Measures” and the corresponding non-GAAP reconciliation tables in the Supplemental Financial Information as well as “Use of non-GAAP Financial Measures” and the Appendix in the Earnings Release Presentation issued April 28, 2020, for a discussion and reconciliation of these measures to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures.
