Professional Holding Corp. Reports Second-Quarter Results

Quarterly Net Income of $6.3 Million as Assets Approach $2.6 Billion

CORAL GABLES, FL / ACCESSWIRE / July 29, 2021 / Professional Holding Corp. (the “Company”) (NASDAQ:PFHD), the parent company of Professional Bank (the “Bank”), today reported net income of $6.3 million, or $0.47 per share, for the second quarter of 2021 compared to net income of $4.8 million, or $0.36 per share, for the first quarter of 2021, and net income of $3.1 million, or $0.22, for the second quarter of 2020.

“The Company had a strong quarter of asset and net income growth.” said Daniel R. Sheehan, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. “These results were a product of continued scale and noninterest income improvement.”

Results of Operations for the Three Months Ended June 30, 2021

  • Net income increased $1.5 million, or 32.3%, to $6.3 million compared to the prior quarter. The increase was primarily due to balance sheet expansion and increases in service charges on deposit accounts associated with acting as a correspondent bank for a Payroll Protection Program lender (the “Correspondent Banking Relationship”).
  • During the quarter we recognized $1.4 million from the reduction of fees associated with the Bank’s Payroll Protection Program (“Professional Bank PPP”) and $0.7 million in deposit correspondent fees from the Correspondent Banking Relationship.
  • Net interest income decreased $0.7 million, or 3.8%, to $17.2 million compared to the prior quarter primarily due to a decrease in Professional Bank PPP loan fees coupled with payoffs of higher yielding loans.
  • Noninterest income increased $1.1 million, or 105.7%, to $2.3 million, compared to the prior quarter primarily due to increases in service charges from the Correspondent Banking Relationship, secondarily to an increase in SWAP fees, and to a one-time credit to an unwinding fee of a Federal Home Loan Bank advance.
  • Noninterest expense decreased $0.8 million, or 7.1%, to $11.0 million compared to the prior quarter primarily due to the payment of change-in-control obligations paid in the prior quarter.

Results of Operations for the Six Months Ended June 30, 2021

  • The variance in the six-month Results of Operations for 2021 compared to 2020 occurred in part due to the March 26, 2020, closing date of the Marquis Bancorp, Inc. (“MBI”) acquisition as there were 95 days of MBI integration in the first six months of 2020 compared to 181 days in the first six month of 2021 (the “MBI Variance”).
  • Net income increased $9.3 million, or 512.8%, to $11.1 million compared to the prior year. The increase was primarily due to the MBI Variance, Professional Bank PPP loan fees recognized, and deposit fees associated with the Correspondent Banking Relationship.
  • Net interest income increased $10.7 million, or 44.1%, to $35.1 million from the prior year primarily due to loan growth.
  • Noninterest income increased $1.6 million, or 87.6%, to $3.4 million, compared to the prior year primarily due to increases in service charges on deposit accounts associated with the Correspondent Banking Relationship, $0.5 million increase in SWAP referral fees, $0.3 million increase in Bank Owned Life Insurance (“BOLI”), and $0.2 million increase in fees generated from loans held for sale, offset by a $0.3 million decrease in SBA loan origination fees.
  • Noninterest expense increased $1.7 million, or 8.1%, to $22.7 million compared to the prior year. The year over year increase was due to increased salaries and investment in digital infrastructure. The Bank’s number of employees increased from 137 as of December 31, 2019, to 179 as of June 30, 2020, which increase was due to the MBI merger, and further increased to 194 as of June 30, 2021.

Financial Condition:

At June 30, 2021:

  • Total assets increased 14.7%, or $0.4 billion, to $2.6 billion compared to the prior quarter primarily due to increases in customer deposit accounts associated with the Correspondent Banking Relationship and investments in taxable securities available-for-sale. Additionally, total assets increased 26.0%, or $0.5 billion, compared to June 30, 2020.
  • Total loans were flat at $1.7 billion compared to the prior quarter. New loan originations were $186.8 million ($169.2 million of conventional loans, of which $118.0 million funded, coupled with $17.6 million of Professional Bank PPP loans). The Professional Bank PPP loan balance decreased $66.7 million, or 31.7%, from the prior quarter.
  • Total Deposits increased 19.7%, or $0.4 billion, to $2.3 billion compared to the prior quarter primarily due to increases in noninterest bearing demand deposit accounts. Additionally, average assets for the quarter increased due to large balances associated with the Correspondent Banking Relationship.
  • Nonperforming assets remained unchanged at $2.8 million compared to the prior quarter. As of June 30, 2020, the Company had nonperforming assets of $6.2 million.

Capital

The Company continues to remain well capitalized per regulatory requirements. As of June 30, 2021, the Company had a total risk-based capital ratio of 14.1% and a leverage capital ratio of 7.8%. During the quarter, the Company infused $15.0 million of capital into the Bank in order support asset growth and maintain well capitalized ratios at the Bank.

On March 2, 2020, the Company’s Board of Directors authorized the repurchase from time to time of the Company’s Class A Common Stock. Under this program, shares may be repurchased in open market transactions, including plans complying with Rule 10b5-1 under the Exchange Act. On May 5, 2021, the Company issued a press release announcing that the Board of Directors of the Company authorized an increase in the amount available under its existing stock repurchase program such that, effective May 6, 2021, $10.0 million of additional funds were made available to repurchase outstanding shares of the Company’s Class A Common Stock. For the three months ended June 30, 2021, the Company repurchased 193,289 shares of Class A Common Stock, at an average price of $17.88 per share. As of June 30, 2021, year to date, the Company repurchased 247,768 shares of Class A Common Stock, at an average price of $17.50 per share.

Liquidity

The Company maintains a strong liquidity position. At June 30, 2021, in addition to its balance sheet liquidity, the Company had the ability to generate approximately $370.9 million in liquidity through available resources. Additionally, the Company retained $20.2 million in cash held at the holding company.

Provision for Loan Losses

The Company’s provision for loan losses amounted to $0.8 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2021, a decrease of $0.2 million compared to the prior quarter. The decrease in the provision expense was due primarily to loan payoffs in higher risk categories offset by an increase in loan originations.

Investment Securities

The Company’s investment portfolio increased $40.9 million, or 47.1%, to $127.7 million compared to the prior quarter. The increase was primarily due to $41.1 million in purchase of securities available for sale, offset by paydowns and maturities. To supplement interest income earned on the Company’s loan portfolio, the Company invests in high quality mortgage-backed securities, government agency bonds, corporate bonds, community development district bonds, and equity securities (including mutual funds).

Loan Portfolio

The Company’s primary source of income is derived from interest earned on loans. The Company’s loan portfolio consists of loans secured by real estate as well as commercial business loans, construction and development loans, and other consumer loans. The Company’s loan clients primarily consist of small to medium sized businesses, the owners and operators of those businesses, and other professionals, entrepreneurs and high net worth individuals. The Company’s owner-occupied and investment commercial real estate loans, residential construction loans, and commercial business loans provide higher risk-adjusted returns, shorter maturities, and more sensitivity to interest rate fluctuations and are complemented by the relatively lower risk residential real estate loans to individuals. The Company’s lending activities are principally directed to the Miami-Dade MSA. The following table summarizes and provides additional information about certain segments of the Company’s loan portfolio as of June 30, 2021:

During the quarter ended June 30, 2021, the Company funded 172 loans representing $17.6 million under Round 3 of the Small Business Association’s (“SBA”) Payroll Protection Program (“PPP”). As of June 30, 2021, the Company participated in all three rounds of the PPP and funded 2,287 small business loans representing approximately $340.5 million in relief proceeds, of which 1,362 loans totaling $196.9 million were forgiven by the SBA. Most of the Professional Bank PPP loans were initially pledged to the Federal Reserve as part of the Payroll Protection Program Liquidity Facility (‘PPPLF’). The PPPLF pledged loans are non-recourse to the Company. However, the Company paid off all of the PPPLF advances during the first and second quarter of 2021 and the balance of PPPLF advances made by the Company was $0 as of June 30, 2021.

As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic the Company has reviewed and processed numerous debt service relief requests in accordance with Section 4013 of the CARES Act and interagency guidelines published by federal banking regulators on March 13, 2020. As currently interpreted by the agencies, the guidelines assert that short-term modifications made on good faith for reasons related to the COVID-19 pandemic to borrowers who were current prior to such relief are not considered Troubled Debt Restructurings (“TDRs”). These modifications include deferrals of principal and interest, modification to interest only, and deferrals to escrow requirements. The modifications had varying terms up to six months. As of June 30, 2021, all these loans had returned to normal payment schedules.

Non-Performing Assets

As of June 30, 2021, the Company had nonperforming assets of $2.8 million, or 0.11% of total assets, compared to nonperforming assets of $2.8 million, or 0.13% of total assets, at March 31, 2021. As of June 30, 2020, the Company had nonperforming assets of $6.2 million, or 0.30% of total assets.

Allowance for Loan and Lease Loss (“ALLL”)

The Company’s allowance for loan losses increased $0.7 million, or 7.2%, to $10.4 million compared to the prior quarter. An appropriate level of reserve was maintained as a precaution against potential economic weakening related to COVID-19 variants. The Company’s allowance for loan losses as a percentage of total gross loans plus loans held for sale (net of overdrafts and excluding Professional Bank PPP loans) was 0.67% at June 30, 2021, compared to 1.10% at December 31, 2020. The December 31, 2020, ALLL included the reserve for Coex Coffee International, Inc., see Reconciliation of non-GAAP Financial Measures.

Explanation of Certain Unaudited Non-GAAP Financial Measures

This press release contains financial information determined by methods other than U.S. Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (“GAAP”), including adjusted net income and adjusted net income per share, which we refer to “non-GAAP financial measures.” The table below provides a reconciliation between these non-GAAP measures and net income and net income per share, which are the most comparable GAAP measures.

Management uses these non-GAAP financial measures in its analysis of the Company’s performance and believes these measures are useful supplemental information that can enhance investors’ understanding of the Company’s business and performance without considering taxes or provisions for loan losses and can be useful when comparing performance with other financial institutions. However, these non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for the comparable GAAP measures.
