Independent Bank Corporation Reports 2020 Fourth Quarter and Full Year Results

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich., Jan. 28, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Independent Bank Corporation (NASDAQ: IBCP) reported fourth quarter 2020 net income of $17.0 million, or $0.77 per diluted share, versus net income of $13.9 million, or $0.61 per diluted share, in the prior-year period. For the year ended December 31, 2020, the Company reported net income of $56.2 million, or $2.53 per diluted share, compared to net income of $46.4 million, or $2.00 per diluted share, in 2019. The increase in 2020 fourth quarter and full-year 2020 earnings as compared to 2019 primarily reflects increases in non-interest income that were partially offset by a decrease in interest income and an increase in non-interest expense and income tax expense.

Fourth quarter 2020 highlights include:

  • Increases in net income and diluted earnings per share of 22.4% and 26.2%, respectively, compared to 2019;
  • Return on average assets and return on average equity of 1.61% and 17.82%, respectively, compared to 1.56% and 15.92%, respectively, in 2019;
  • Net gains on mortgage loans of $15.9 million (up 148.5% over 2019) and total mortgage loan origination volume of $502.5 million;
  • Deposit net growth of $39.6 million (or 1.1%);
  • Continued strong asset quality metrics as evidenced by net loan recoveries during the quarter, a low level of non-performing loans and non-performing assets;
  • COVID related forbearances declined to 0.83% of total loans; and
  • The payment of a 20 cent per share dividend on common stock on November 16, 2020.

Full year 2020 highlights include:

  • Increases in net income and diluted earnings per share of 20.9% and 26.3%, respectively, compared to 2019;
  • Return on average assets and return on average equity of 1.43% and 15.68 %, respectively, compared to 1.35% and 13.63%, respectively, in 2019;
  • Net gains on mortgage loans of $62.6 million (up 213.1% over 2019) and total mortgage loan origination volume of $1.8 billion;
  • Deposit net growth of $600.6 million (or 19.8 %); and
  • Tangible common equity per share increased by 16% to $16.33 from $14.08.

Significant items impacting comparable quarterly and year to date 2020 and 2019 results include the following:

  • As a result of hedge de-designation the company realized an increase in interest expense of $1.6 million ($0.06 per diluted share, after tax) due to accelerated amortization of deferred losses on certain derivative instruments. As cash flow hedges these losses were previously recorded in accumulated other comprehensive income (loss).
  • Changes in the fair value due to price of capitalized mortgage loan servicing rights (the “MSR Changes”) of a negative $0.9 million ($0.03 per diluted share, after taxes) and a negative $10.8 million ($0.39 per diluted share, after taxes) for the three-months and full-year ended December 31, 2020, respectively, as compared to a positive $0.6 million ($0.02 per diluted share, after taxes) and a negative $6.4 million ($0.22 per diluted share, after taxes) for the three-months and full year ended December 31, 2019, respectively.
  • Approximately $1.54 million ($0.06 per diluted share, after taxes) and $3.0 million ($0.11 per diluted share, after taxes) of expenses related to the ongoing data processing conversion and the completed bank branch closures (as described further below under “Operating Results”) for the three-months and full-year ended December 31, 2020, respectively.

William B. (“Brad”) Kessel, the President and Chief Executive Officer of Independent Bank Corporation, commented: “We are pleased to report very strong financial performance in the fourth quarter and for the full-year 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. We assisted our customers in completing and submitting PPP forgiveness applications to the SBA, with over 38% 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 fourth quarter of 2020. COVID-19 related loan forbearance balances decreased by 62.7% during the fourth quarter of 2020. As we look ahead to 2021 and beyond, we are mindful of the ongoing challenges from the COVID-19 pandemic, however, we are confident of our continued ability to effectively respond to these challenges and remain optimistic about our future.”

COVID-19 Pandemic Update

The 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. On November 13, 2020 we again limited our branch lobbies to appointment only in response to increasing COVID-19 cases in the State of Michigan. Branch lobbies were reopened January 4, 2021. With the ability to use drive through service, ATMs or our electronic banking solutions there was minimal disruption to our 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. Customer demand for this program was extraordinary. As of December 31, 2020, we had 1,483 PPP loans outstanding with a total balance of $169.8 million. The average balance of PPP loans in the fourth quarter of 2020 was $220.2 million with an average yield of 6.91% (including the accretion of approximately $3.3 million of net of fees). At December 31, 2020, there was $3.2 million remaining unaccreted net fees related to PPP loans. These net fees are expected to be accreted into interest income over the next 6 months, and the pace of such accretion will depend on payment activity (including loan forgiveness) within the PPP loan portfolio. As of December 31, 2020, 808 forgiveness applications (totaling $123.0 million) have been submitted to the SBA with 751 (totaling $92.0 million) applications approved. We are currently taking applications for the second round of the Paycheck Protection Program.

Operating Results

The Company’s net interest income totaled $31.0 million during the fourth quarter of 2020, an increase of $0.3 million, or 0.9% from the year-ago period, and down $1.0 million, or 3.0%, from the third quarter of 2020. The Company realized an increase in interest expense of $1.6 million due to accelerated amortization of deferred loss on certain derivative instruments that have been de-designated. The Company’s tax equivalent net interest income as a percent of average interest-earning assets (the “net interest margin”) was 3.12% during the fourth quarter of 2020, compared to 3.70% in the year-ago period, and 3.31% in the third 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 $3.98 billion in the fourth quarter of 2020, compared to $3.32 billion in the year ago quarter and $3.89 billion in the third quarter of 2020.

For the full year 2020, net interest income totaled $123.6 million, an increase of $1.0 million, or 0.8% from 2019. The Company’s net interest margin for the full year of 2020 was 3.34% compared to 3.80% in 2019. The increase in net interest income for the full year of 2020 compared to 2019 is also due to an increase in average interest-earning assets that was largely 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 $22.4 million and $80.7 million, respectively, for the fourth quarter and full year 2020, compared to $15.6 million and $47.7 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 fourth quarters of 2020 and 2019, were approximately $15.9 million and $6.4 million, respectively. For full year 2020, net gains on mortgage loans totaled $62.6 million compared to $20.0 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 $0.4 million and a gain of $1.3 million in the fourth quarters of 2020 and 2019, respectively. For full year 2020 and 2019, mortgage loan servicing, net, generated a loss of $9.4 million and $3.3 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 EndedTwelve Months Ended

Fair value change due to pay-downs(1,304)(902)(5,391)(3,124)
Total$ (384)$ 1,348$ (9,350)$ (3,336)

Non-interest expenses totaled $32.7 million in the fourth quarter of 2020, compared to $29.3 million in the year-ago period. For full year 2020, non-interest expenses totaled $122.4 million versus $111.7 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 data processing conversion related expenses. Full year 2020 performance based compensation expense increased $7.7 million primarily as a result of actual performance relative to established management incentive plan targets. The fourth quarter and full year 2020 includes $1.5 million and $2.6 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 full-year 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 $4.1 million and $13.3 million in the fourth quarter and full-year 2020, respectively. This compares to an income tax expense of $3.3 million and $11.3 million in the fourth quarter and full-year 2019, respectively. The changes in income tax expense primarily reflect changes in pre-tax earnings in 2020 relative to 2019.

Ratio of the allowance for loan losses to non-performing loans 450.01%  274.32%  290.27% 

(1) Excludes loans that are classified as “troubled debt restructured” that are still performing.

Non-performing loans have decreased $1.7 million from December 31, 2019, due primarily to a decrease in non-performing mortgage loans.

The provision for loan losses was a credit of $0.4 million and $0.2 million in the fourth quarters of 2020 and 2019, respectively. The provision for loan losses was an expense of $12.5 million and 0.8 million for the full-year 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 full-year provision for loan losses includes an $11.2 million (or 128.3%) 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 $0.1 million and loan net charge offs of $3.2 million in the fourth quarter and full-year 2020, respectively. This compares to loan net recoveries of $0.2 million and $0.4 million, in the fourth quarter and full-year 2019, respectively. At December 31, 2020, the allowance for loan losses totaled $35.4 million, or 1.30% 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 1.43% of portfolio loans at December 31, 2020.

The provision for the loan loss was calculated utilizing the incurred model for the full year 2020. The adoption of CECL was delayed following the updated guidance included in the second COVID-19 relief bill passed in December 2020. The Company is expecting to adopt CECL on January 1, 2021 as allowed under the CARES Act extension. We expect to recognize an cumulative effect adjustment through retained earnings increasing the allowance for loan losses. We are estimating this increase to the allowance for loan losses to be in the range of $10.5 million to $12.5 million.

Balance Sheet, Liquidity and Capital

Total assets were $4.2 billion at December 31, 2020, an increase of $639.3 million from December 31, 2019. Loans, excluding loans held for sale, were $2.73 billion at December 31, 2020, compared to $2.73 billion at December 31, 2019. Deposits totaled $3.64 billion at December 31, 2020, an increase of $600.6 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 $118.7 million at December 31, 2020, versus $65.3 million at December 31, 2019. Securities available for sale totaled $1.1 billion at December 31, 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 $389.5 million at December 31, 2020, or 9.27% of total assets. Tangible common equity totaled $356.9 million at December 31, 2020, or $16.33 per share. The Company’s wholly owned subsidiary, Independent Bank, remains significantly above “well capitalized” for regulatory purposes with the following ratios:

Share Repurchase Plan

On December 18, 2020, the Board of Directors of the Company authorized the 2021 share repurchase plan. Under the terms of the 2021 share repurchase plan, the Company is authorized to purchase up to 1,100,000 shares, or approximately 5% of its outstanding common stock. The repurchase plan is authorized to last through December 31, 2021.

Due primarily to the economic uncertainty brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic, the Company suspended its share repurchase plan in March 2020. However, as a result of the Company’s strong financial performance and improved economic conditions, the Company reactivated the share repurchased plan in the fourth quarter of 2020 and acquired 30,027 shares at a weighted average price of $14.90. For the full-year 2020 the Company repurchased 708,956 shares at a weighted average price of $20.07.
