Edward J. Wehmer, President and Chief Executive Officer, commented, "Wintrust reported record net income for the second quarter of 2014, highlighted by significant loan and deposit growth, stable net interest margin, steady credit quality metrics, increased mortgage banking and wealth management revenues and effective expense control."

Mr. Wehmer continued, "The Company grew total loans, excluding covered loans and mortgage loans held-for-sale by $617 million in the second quarter, headlined by $292 million of growth in the commercial and commercial real-estate portfolios and $292 million of growth in the premium finance loan portfolios. The increase in loan volume drove higher net interest income in the current quarter. Additionally, net interest margin increased slightly as the loan growth was primarily funded by growth in non-interest bearing deposits which now account for 20% of our total deposits."

Commenting on credit quality, Mr. Wehmer noted, "The Company has continued its practice of timely addressing and resolving non-performing credits. Overall, credit quality measures remained stable in the current quarter. For the third consecutive quarter, the ratio of the allowance for loan losses as a percentage of total non-performing loans increased, exhibiting greater coverage for non-performing credits. We believe that the Company's reserves remain appropriate."

Mr. Wehmer further commented, "Mortgage banking revenue picked up as a result of higher originations which in turn were the result of a more favorable mortgage banking environment in the second quarter. We expect the mortgage banking environment to remain favorable as the purchase market should stay active as interest rates remain low. We believe that our mortgage banking business is well positioned to grow both organically and through acquisitions."

Mr. Wehmer noted, "Record wealth management revenues in the second quarter of 2014 were evidence of the continued successful growth of this segment. We are well positioned in all three aspects of wealth management to continue to expand this line of business."

With regard to expenses, Mr. Wehmer further commented, "As expected, the Company's efficiency ratio declined in the second quarter as production rebounded in the mortgage banking business. Management limited staffing reductions in the first quarter despite lower volumes to ensure adequate support was in place for anticipated increases in future production. Excluding variable compensation and benefits, the aggregate of all other expenses recorded in the second quarter was virtually unchanged from the first quarter."

Turning to the future, Mr. Wehmer stated, "We expanded our franchise in the second quarter through the addition of a Stone Park bank branch and on July 11, 2014 we acquired a bank branch in Pewaukee, Wisconsin from THE National Bank. Additionally, we expect to close the acquisition of 11 bank branches from Talmer Bancorp, Inc. in the third quarter. Evaluating strategic acquisitions of this nature and organic branch growth will continue to be a part of our overall growth strategy. Our pipelines for both internal growth and external growth remain consistently strong. Growing franchise value, increasing profitability, leveraging our expense infrastructure and increasing shareholder value continue to be our main objectives."

(1) Net revenue is net interest income plus non-interest income.
(2) See "Supplemental Financial Measures/Ratios" for additional information on this performance measure/ratio.
(3) The net overhead ratio is calculated by netting total non-interest expense and total non-interest income, annualizing this amount, and dividing by that period's average total assets. A lower ratio indicates a higher degree of efficiency.
(4) The efficiency ratio is calculated by dividing total non-interest expense by tax-equivalent net revenue (less securities gains or losses). A lower ratio indicates more efficient revenue generation. 
(5) Period-end balance sheet percentage changes are annualized.

Certain returns, yields, performance ratios, or quarterly growth rates are "annualized" in this presentation to represent an annual time period. This is done for analytical purposes to better discern for decision-making purposes underlying performance trends when compared to full-year or year-over-year amounts. For example, a 5% growth rate for a quarter would represent an annualized 20% growth rate.

Financial Performance Overview – Second Quarter 2014

For the second quarter of 2014, net interest income totaled $149.2 million, an increase of $5.2 million as compared to the first quarter of 2014 and an increase of $13.4 million as compared to the second quarter of 2013. The changes in net interest income on both a sequential and linked quarter basis are the result of the following:

  • Net interest income increased $5.2 million in the second quarter of 2014 compared to the first quarter of 2014, due to:
     
    • An increase in total interest income of $5.2 million in the second quarter of 2014 compared to the first quarter of 2014 resulting primarily from significant loan growth, an increase in the yield on covered loans and one additional day in the quarter, partially offset by a decline in the yield on non-covered loans.
                
    • Interest expense in the second quarter of 2014 compared to the first quarter of 2014 was relatively unchanged as the impact of one additional day in the quarter was offset by improvement in funding mix shown by a higher proportion of interest-bearing deposits in the current quarter.
       
  • Net interest income increased $13.4 million in the second quarter of 2014 compared to the second quarter of 2013, due to:

    •  Average loans, excluding covered loans, for the second quarter of 2014 increased by $1.2 billion compared to the second quarter of 2013. The growth in average loans, excluding covered loans, was partially offset by a one basis point decline in the yield on earning assets, resulting in an increase in total interest income of $9.9 million in the second quarter of 2014 compared to the prior year quarter.
       
    • Funding mix improved as average demand deposits increased $501.2 million, average interest bearing deposits increased $518.0 million and average wholesale borrowings decreased by $98.4 million in the second quarter of 2014 compared to the second quarter of 2013. The change in funding mix resulted in a 12 basis point decrease in the yield on average interest bearing liabilities which created a $3.5 million decrease in interest expense.
       
    • Combined, the increase in interest income of $9.9 million and the reduction of interest expense by $3.5 million created the $13.4 million increase in net interest income in the second quarter of 2014 compared to the second quarter of 2013. 

The net interest margin, on a fully taxable equivalent basis, for the second quarter of 2014 was 3.62% compared to 3.61% for the first quarter of 2014 and 3.50% for the second quarter of 2013. 

Non-interest income totaled $54.1 million in the second quarter of 2014, increasing $8.6 million, or 19%, compared to the first quarter of 2014 and decreasing $9.9 million, or 15%, compared to the second quarter of 2013. The increase in non-interest income in the second quarter of 2014 compared to the first quarter of 2014 is primarily attributable to an increase in mortgage banking and wealth management revenues. The decrease in non-interest income in the second quarter of 2014 compared to the second quarter of 2013 was primarily attributable to a decrease in mortgage banking revenues and trading losses partially offset by higher wealth management revenues. 

Mortgage banking revenue increased $7.4 million when compared to the first quarter of 2014 and decreased $7.9 million when compared to the second quarter of 2013. The increase in mortgage banking revenue from the first quarter of 2014 primarily resulted from increased originations in the current quarter as the market rebounded from a general downturn in the mortgage banking business during the previous quarter, while the decrease in mortgage banking revenue compared to the second quarter of 2013 resulted primarily from lower originations due to a strong purchase and refinance market in the second quarter of 2013. Loans originated and sold to the secondary market were $912.4 million in the second quarter of 2014 compared to $527.3 million in the first quarter of 2014 and $1.1 billion in the second quarter of 2013 (see "Non-Interest Income" section later in this release for further detail).

Non-interest expense totaled $133.6 million in the second quarter of 2014, increasing $2.3 million, or 2%, compared to the first quarter of 2014 and increasing $5.4 million, or 4%, compared to the second quarter of 2013. The increase in the current quarter compared to the first quarter of 2014 can be primarily attributed to higher salary and employee benefit costs partially offset by a decrease in OREO and occupancy expenses. The increase in the second quarter of 2014 compared to the second quarter of 2013 was primarily attributable to higher salary and employee benefit costs and increased occupancy, equipment and marketing expenses. (see "Non-Interest Expense" section later in this release for further detail).

Financial Performance Overview – First Six Months of 2014

For the first six months of 2014, net interest income totaled $293.2 million, an increase of $26.6 million as compared to the first six months of 2013. The changes in net interest income on a linked quarter basis are the result of the following:

  • Net interest income increased $26.6 million in the first six months of 2014 compared to the first six months of 2013, due to:
     
    • Average earning assets for the first six months of 2014 increased by $842.8 million compared to the first six months of 2013.  This was comprised of average loan growth, excluding covered loans, of $1.1 billion, partially offset by a decrease of $204.7 million in the average balance of covered loans and a decrease of $50.8 million in the average balance of liquidity management assets. The growth in average total loans, excluding covered loans, included an increase of $527.2 million in commercial loans, $296.1 million in commercial real estate loans, $231.7 in commercial premium finance receivables and $184.2 million in life insurance premium finance receivables, partially offset by a decrease of $136.9 million in mortgage loans held-for-sale and a decrease of $7.1 million in home equity and other loans.
       
    • The average earning asset growth of $842.8 million in the first six months of 2014 and a three basis point improvement in yield on earning assets, resulted in an increase in total interest income of $18.9 million in the first six months of 2014 compared to the first six months of 2013.
       
    • Funding mix improved as average demand deposits increased $468.8 million, average interest bearing deposits increased $391.6 million and average wholesale borrowings decreased $95.4 million in the first six months of 2014 compared to the first six months of 2013. The change in funding resulted in a 14 basis point decrease in the yield on average interest bearing liabilities which created a $7.7 million decrease in interest expense.
       
    • Combined, the increase in interest income of $18.9 million and the reduction of interest expense by $7.7 million created the $26.6 million increase in net interest income in the first six months of 2014 compared to the first six months of 2013. 

The net interest margin, on a fully taxable equivalent basis, for the first six months of 2014 was 3.61%, compared to 3.46% for the first six months of 2013. 

Non-interest income totaled $99.6 million in the first six months of 2014, decreasing $21.7 million, or 18%, compared to the first six months of 2013. The decrease in non-interest income in the first six months of 2014 compared to the first six months of 2013 was primarily attributable to a decrease in mortgage banking revenues and trading losses, partially offset by higher wealth management revenues. 

Mortgage banking revenue decreased $21.6 million when compared to the first six months of 2013. The decrease in mortgage banking revenue from the first six months of 2014 compared to the first six months of 2013 resulted primarily from decreased originations due to the more favorable mortgage banking environment in the first six months of 2013. Loans originated and sold to the secondary market were $1.4 billion in the first six months of 2014 compared to $2.0 billion in the first six months of 2013 (see "Non-Interest Income" section later in this release for further detail).

Non-interest expense totaled $264.9 million in the first six months of 2014, increasing $16.6 million, or 7%, compared to the first six months of 2013. The increase compared to the first six months of 2013 was primarily attributable to higher OREO costs along with increases to salary, occupancy, and equipment expenses. (see "Non-Interest Expense" section later in this release for further detail).

Financial Performance Overview – Credit Quality

The ratio of non-performing assets to total assets was 0.79% as of June 30, 2014 and March 31, 2014, and 1.02% at June 30, 2013. Non-performing assets, excluding covered assets, totaled $148.5 million at June 30, 2014, compared to $144.7 million at March 31, 2014 and $179.5 million at June 30, 2013.

Non-performing loans, excluding covered loans, totaled $88.7 million, or 0.64% of total loans, at June 30, 2014, compared to $90.1 million, or 0.69% of total loans, at March 31, 2014 and $121.5 million, or 0.97% of total loans, at June 30, 2013. Compared to March 31, 2014, non-performing loans, excluding covered loans, decreased primarily as a result of a $5.7 million and $1.5 million decrease in non-performing loans within the commercial and home equity loan portfolios, respectively, partially offset by a $2.9 million increase in non-performing loans within the commercial real-estate loan portfolio. The decrease in non-performing loans, excluding covered loans, compared to June 30, 2013 is primarily the result of a $21.5 million decrease in the commercial real-estate loan portfolio, a $10.8 million decrease in the commercial loan portfolio and a $6.5 million decrease in the home equity loan portfolio, partially offset by a $5.1 million increase in the residential real-estate loan portfolio. OREO, excluding covered OREO, of $59.6 million at June 30, 2014 increased $5.5 million compared to $54.1 million at March 31, 2014 and increased $2.6 million compared to $57.0 million at June 30, 2013. The increase in OREO during the second quarter of 2014 compared to both periods is partly attributable to the transfer to OREO of certain loans acquired in prior bank acquisitions totaling $2.8 million.

The provision for credit losses, excluding the provision for covered loan losses, totaled $6.8 million for the second quarter of 2014 compared to $3.3 million for the first quarter of 2014 and $15.1 million for the second quarter of 2013. The increase in the second quarter of 2014 compared to the first quarter of 2014 is partly attributable to additional provision related to the $616.8 million in loan growth during the period.

Net charge-offs as a percentage of loans, excluding covered loans, for the second quarter of 2014 totaled 19 basis points on an annualized basis compared to 24 basis points on an annualized basis in the first quarter of 2014 and 59 basis points on an annualized basis in the second quarter of 2013. Net charge-offs decreased in the second quarter of 2014 compared to the first quarter of 2014 primarily as a result of a $2.3 million decrease in net charge-offs within the commercial real-estate loan portfolio and a $1.4 million decrease within the home equity loan portfolio, partially offset by a $1.8 million increase within the commercial loan portfolio. Compared to the second quarter of 2013, net charge-offs decreased primarily as a result of a $12.4 million decrease in net charge-offs within the commercial real-estate loan portfolio and a $1.0 million decrease within the home equity loan portfolio, partially offset by a $1.3 million increase within the commercial loan portfolio.

Excluding the allowance for covered loan losses, the allowance for credit losses remained relatively unchanged at June 30, 2014 compared to March 31, 2014, totaling $93.1 million, or 0.68% of total loans, at June 30, 2014 compared to $93.0 million, or 0.71% of total loans at March 31, 2014. At June 30, 2013, the allowance for credit losses, excluding the allowance for covered loan losses, totaled $110.4 million, or 0.88% of total loans. The allowance for unfunded lending-related commitments totaled $884,000 as of June 30, 2014 compared to $737,000 as of March 31, 2014 and $3.6 million as of June 30, 2013. The decrease from June 30, 2013 to June 30, 2014 was partially attributable to a decrease in the allowance for unfunded lending-related commitments during the period primarily as a result of the funding of one letter of credit in the third quarter of 2013 and the expiration of one letter of credit in fourth quarter of 2013.

Diluted (B/D) $ 0.76 $ 0.68 $ 0.69 $ 1.44 $ 1.34

Potentially dilutive common shares can result from stock options, restricted stock unit awards, stock warrants, the Company's convertible preferred stock, tangible equity unit shares and shares to be issued under the Employee Stock Purchase Plan and the Directors Deferred Fee and Stock Plan, being treated as if they had been either exercised or issued, computed by application of the treasury stock method. While potentially dilutive common shares are typically included in the computation of diluted earnings per share, potentially dilutive common shares are excluded from this computation in periods in which the effect would reduce the loss per share or increase the income per share. For diluted earnings per share, net income applicable to common shares can be affected by the conversion of the Company's convertible preferred stock. Where the effect of this conversion would reduce the loss per share or increase the income per share, net income applicable to common shares is not adjusted by the associated preferred dividends.

(1) Net revenue includes net interest income and non-interest income.
(2) See "Supplemental Financial Measures/Ratios" for additional information on this performance measure/ratio.
(3) The net overhead ratio is calculated by netting total non-interest expense and total non-interest income, annualizing this amount, and dividing by that period's total average assets. A lower ratio indicates a higher degree of efficiency.
(4) The efficiency ratio is calculated by dividing total non-interest expense by tax-equivalent net revenue (less securities gains or losses). A lower ratio indicates more efficient revenue generation.
(5) Capital ratios for current quarter-end are estimated.
(6) The allowance for credit losses includes both the allowance for loan losses and the allowance for unfunded lending-related commitments, but excludes the allowance for covered loan losses.

SUPPLEMENTAL FINANCIAL MEASURES/RATIOS

The accounting and reporting policies of Wintrust conform to generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP") in the United States and prevailing practices in the banking industry. However, certain non-GAAP performance measures and ratios are used by management to evaluate and measure the Company's performance. These include taxable-equivalent net interest income (including its individual components), net interest margin (including its individual components), the efficiency ratio, tangible common equity ratio, tangible common book value per share and return on average tangible common equity. Management believes that these measures and ratios provide users of the Company's financial information a more meaningful view of the performance of the interest-earning assets and interest-bearing liabilities and of the Company's operating efficiency. Other financial holding companies may define or calculate these measures and ratios differently.

Management reviews yields on certain asset categories and the net interest margin of the Company and its banking subsidiaries on a fully taxable-equivalent ("FTE") basis. In this non-GAAP presentation, net interest income is adjusted to reflect tax-exempt interest income on an equivalent before-tax basis. This measure ensures comparability of net interest income arising from both taxable and tax-exempt sources. Net interest income on a FTE basis is also used in the calculation of the Company's efficiency ratio. The efficiency ratio, which is calculated by dividing non-interest expense by total taxable-equivalent net revenue (less securities gains or losses), measures how much it costs to produce one dollar of revenue. Securities gains or losses are excluded from this calculation to better match revenue from daily operations to operational expenses. Management considers the tangible common equity ratio and tangible book value per common share as useful measurements of the Company's equity. The Company references the return on average tangible common equity as a measurement of profitability.

The following table presents a reconciliation of certain non-GAAP performance measures and ratios used by the Company to evaluate and measure the Company's performance to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures for the last five quarters.

NON-INTEREST INCOME

For the second quarter of 2014, non-interest income totaled $54.1 million compared to $45.5 million in the first quarter of 2014 and $64.0 million in the second quarter of 2013. The increase compared to the first quarter of 2014 was primarily attributable to an increase in mortgage banking and wealth management revenues. The decrease compared to the second quarter of 2013 was primarily attributable to a decrease in mortgage banking revenues and trading losses partially offset by higher wealth management revenues.

The significant changes in non-interest income for the quarter ended June 30, 2014 compared to the quarters ended March 31, 2014 and June 30, 2013 are discussed below.

Wealth management revenue totaled $18.2 million in the second quarter of 2014 compared to $16.8 million in the first quarter of 2014, an increase of 8%, and $15.9 million in the second quarter of 2013, an increase of 15%. The increase during the current period compared to prior quarters is mostly attributable to growth in assets under management due to new customers, as well as market appreciation. Wealth management revenue is comprised of the trust and asset management revenue of The Chicago Trust Company and Great Lakes Advisors and the brokerage commissions, money managed fees and insurance product commissions at Wayne Hummer Investments.

For the quarter ended June 30, 2014, mortgage banking revenue totaled $23.8 million, an increase of $7.4 million, or 45%, when compared to the first quarter of 2014, and a decrease of $7.9 million, or 25%, when compared to the second quarter of 2013. The increase in mortgage banking revenue in the second quarter of 2014 as compared to the first quarter of 2014 resulted primarily from higher origination volumes as a result of an improved mortgage banking environment. The decrease in mortgage banking revenue in the second quarter of 2014 as compared to the prior year period resulted primarily from lower loan origination volumes. Originations were higher in the second quarter of 2013 as a result of a more active refinance market as compared to the second quarter of 2014. Mortgage loan originations were $912.4 million in the second quarter of 2014 as compared to $527.3 million and $1.1 billion in the first quarter of 2014 and second quarter of 2013, respectively. Mortgage banking revenue includes revenue from activities related to originating, selling and servicing residential real estate loans for the secondary market.

MSRs as a percentage of loans serviced 0.89% 0.92% 0.87%    

Service charges on deposit accounts totaled $5.7 million in the second quarter of 2014, an increase of $342,000 and $653,000 compared to the quarters ended March 31, 2014 and June 30, 2013, respectively. The increase in the current quarter is primarily a result of higher account analysis fees on deposit accounts which have increased as a result of the Company's commercial banking initiative.

The Company recognized $743,000 of trading losses in the second quarter of 2014 compared to trading losses of $652,000 in the first quarter of 2014 and trading gains of $3.3 million in the second quarter of 2013. Trading gains and losses recorded by the Company primarily result from fair value adjustments related to interest rate derivatives not designated as hedges, primarily interest rate cap instruments that the Company uses to manage interest rate risk, specifically in the event of future increases in short-term interest rates. The change in value of the cap derivatives reflects the present value of expected cash flows over the remaining life of the caps. These expected cash flows are derived from the expected path for and a measure of volatility for short-term interest rates.

Other non-interest income totaled $6.2 million in the second quarter of 2014 compared to $6.1 million in the first quarter of 2014 and $7.1 million in the second quarter of 2013. Other non-interest income decreased in 2014 as compared to the prior year period primarily as a result of an decreased amount of interest rate swap transactions due to a unfavorable change in the rate environment and increased competition.

NON-INTEREST EXPENSE

Non-interest expense for the second quarter of 2014 totaled $133.6 million, an increase of approximately $2.3 million, or 2%, compared to the first quarter of 2014 and an increase of $5.4 million, or 4%, compared to the second quarter of 2013. The increase compared to the first quarter of 2014 was primarily attributable to higher salary and employee benefit costs partially offset by a decrease in OREO expenses and occupancy. The increase compared to the second quarter of 2013 was primarily attributable to higher salary and employee benefit costs and increased occupancy, equipment and advertising and marketing.

The significant changes in non-interest expense for the quarter ended June 30, 2014 compared to the quarters ended March 31, 2014 and June 30, 2013 are discussed below.

Salaries and employee benefits expense increased $2.0 million, or 3%, in the second quarter of 2014 compared to the first quarter of 2014 primarily as a result of a $3.9 million increase in bonus and commissions primarily attributable higher expenses on variable pay based arrangements partially offset by reduced expense related to the Company's long-term incentive program and a $1.4 million decrease in employee benefits resulting from lower payroll taxes. Salaries and employee benefits expense increased $2.7 million, or 3%, compared to the second quarter of 2013 primarily as a result of a $1.7 million increase in salaries caused by the addition of employees from the various acquisitions and larger staffing as the Company grows.

Equipment expense totaled $7.2 million for the second quarter of 2014, a decrease of $180,000 compared to the first quarter of 2014 and an increase of $810,000 compared to the second quarter of 2013. The increase in the current quarter compared to the prior year quarter is primarily related to additional equipment depreciation as a result of acquisitions as well as increased software license fees. Equipment expense includes depreciation on equipment, maintenance and repairs, equipment rental and software license fees. 

Occupancy expense for the second quarter of 2014 was $9.9 million, a decrease of $1.1 million, or 10%, compared to the first quarter of 2014 and an increase of $1.1 million, or 13%, compared to the same period in 2013. The decrease in the second quarter as compared to the first quarter is primarily the result of reduced snow removal expenses and utility expenses on owned locations including those obtained in the Company's acquisitions. The increase in the current quarter as compared to the prior year quarter is primarily due to expenses incurred related to properties acquired in the last year. Occupancy expense includes depreciation on premises, real estate taxes, utilities and maintenance of premises, as well as net rent expense for leased premises.

Data processing expenses totaled $4.5 million in the second quarter of 2014 compared to $4.7 million recorded in the first quarter of 2014 and $4.4 million recorded in the second quarter of 2013. The amount of data processing expenses incurred fluctuates based on the overall growth of loan and deposit accounts as well as additional expenses recorded related to bank acquisition transactions. 

Advertising and marketing expenses totaled $3.6 million in the second quarter of 2014, an increase of $742,000 compared to the first quarter of 2014 and $836,000 compared to the second quarter of 2013. The increase in the current quarter compared to the prior periods relates primarily to expenses for community ads and sponsorships.

Professional fees for the second quarter of 2014 were $4.0 million, an increase of $592,000, or 17%, compared to the first quarter of 2014 and a decrease of $145,000, or 3%, compared to the same period in 2013. The increase in the current quarter as compared to the first quarter of 2014 is due to an increase in legal expenses, including legal fees incurred in connection with recent acquisitions. Professional fees include legal, audit and tax fees, external loan review costs and normal regulatory exam assessments.

OREO expense totaled $2.5 million in the second quarter of 2014 compared to OREO expense of $4.0 million recorded in the first quarter of 2014 and OREO expense of $2.3 million recorded in the second quarter of 2013. OREO expense was lower in the current quarter compared to the quarter ended March 31, 2014 primarily due to fewer negative valuation adjustments of certain OREO properties. OREO costs include all costs related to obtaining, maintaining and selling other real estate owned properties.    

Miscellaneous expense in the second quarter of 2014 increased $1.6 million, or 17%, compared to the quarter ended March 31, 2014 and decreased $1.1 million, or 8%, compared to the quarter ended June 30, 2013. Miscellaneous expense includes ATM expenses, correspondent bank charges, directors' fees, telephone, travel and entertainment, corporate insurance, dues and subscriptions, problem loan expenses and lending origination costs that are not deferred.

The allowance for credit losses, excluding the allowance for covered loan losses, is comprised of the allowance for loan losses and the allowance for unfunded lending-related commitments. The allowance for loan losses is a reserve against loan amounts that are actually funded and outstanding while the allowance for unfunded lending-related commitments (separate liability account) relates to certain amounts that Wintrust is committed to lend but for which funds have not yet been disbursed. The provision for credit losses, excluding the provision for covered loan losses, may contain both a component related to funded loans (provision for loan losses) and a component related to lending-related commitments (provision for unfunded loan commitments and letters of credit).

The provision for credit losses, excluding the provision for covered loan losses, totaled $6.8 million for the second quarter of 2014, as compared to $3.3 million for the first quarter of 2014 and $15.1 million for the second quarter of 2013. For the quarter ended June 30, 2014, net charge-offs, excluding covered loans, totaled $6.6 million compared to $7.8 million in the first quarter of 2014 and $18.4 million recorded in the second quarter of 2013. Annualized net charge-offs as a percentage of average loans, excluding covered loans, were 0.19% in the second quarter of 2014, 0.24% in the first quarter of 2014 and 0.59% in the second quarter of 2013. Net charge-offs decreased in the second quarter of 2014 compared to the first quarter of 2014 primarily as a result of a $2.3 million decrease in net charge-offs within the commercial real-estate loan portfolio and a $1.4 million decrease within the home equity loan portfolio, partially offset by a $1.8 million increase within the commercial loan portfolio. Compared to the second quarter of 2013, net charge-offs decreased primarily as a result of a $12.4 million decrease in net charge-offs within the commercial real-estate loan portfolio and a $1.0 million decrease within the home equity loan portfolio, partially offset by a $1.3 million increase within the commercial loan portfolio.

The allowance for unfunded lending-related commitments totaled $884,000 as of June 30, 2014 compared to $737,000 as of March 31, 2014 and $3.6 million as of June 30, 2013. The decrease when compared to the second quarter of 2013 was primarily attributable to the funding of one letter of credit in the third quarter of 2013 and the expiration of one letter of credit in the fourth quarter of 2013. 

The lower level of the allowance for credit losses in 2014 reflects the improvements in credit quality metrics compared to 2013. Management believes the allowance for credit losses is appropriate to provide for inherent losses in the portfolio. There can be no assurances however, that future losses will not exceed the amounts provided for, thereby affecting future results of operations. The amount of future additions to the allowance for credit losses will be dependent upon management's assessment of the appropriateness of the allowance based on its evaluation of economic conditions, changes in real estate values, interest rates, the regulatory environment, the level of past-due and non-performing loans, and other factors.

The Company also provides a provision for covered loan losses on covered loans and maintains an allowance for covered loan losses on covered loans. Please see "Covered Assets" later in this document for more detail.

As part of a quarterly review performed by Management to determine if the Company's allowance for loan losses is appropriate, an analysis is prepared on the loan portfolio based upon a breakout of core loans and consumer, niche and purchased loans. A summary of the allowance for loan losses calculated for the loan components in both the core loan portfolio and the consumer, niche and purchased loan portfolio was shown on the previous pages as of June 30, 2014 and March 31, 2014. The allowance for loan losses to core loans was 0.97% compared to 0.21% for consumer, niche and purchased loans and 0.67% for the entire loan portfolio as of June 30, 2014. As of March 31, 2014, the allowance for loan losses to core loans was 1.02% compared to 0.19% for consumer, niche and purchased loans and 0.70% for the entire loan portfolio.

The decrease in the allowance for loan losses to core loans in the second quarter of 2014 compared to the first quarter of 2014 was attributable to a shift in the mix of core loans requiring ASC 450 reserves (general reserves) in the current quarter and a smaller population of core loans requiring ASC 310 reserves (specific reserves).  Loans requiring ASC 450 reserves typically have lower reserve factors as compared to core loans requiring ASC 310 reserves.  ASC 310 reserves are maintained on impaired loans.

Non-performing Commercial and Commercial Real Estate

Commercial non-performing loans totaled $6.5 million as of June 30, 2014 compared to $12.2 million as of March 31, 2014 and $17.3 million as of June 30, 2013. Commercial real estate non-performing loans totaled $36.6 million as of June 30, 2014 compared to $33.7 million as of March 31, 2014 and $58.1 million as of June 30, 2013.

Management is pursuing the resolution of all credits in this category. At this time, management believes reserves are appropriate to absorb inherent losses that are expected upon the ultimate resolution of these credits.

Non-performing Residential Real Estate and Home Equity

Non-performing home equity and residential real estate loans totaled $21.1 million as of June 30, 2014. The balance remained relatively unchanged from March 31, 2014 and decreased $1.5 million from June 30, 2013. The June 30, 2014 non-performing balance is comprised of $15.3 million of residential real estate (79 individual credits) and $5.8 million of home equity loans (39 individual credits). On average, this is approximately 8 non-performing residential real estate loans and home equity loans per chartered bank within the Company. The Company believes control and collection of these loans is very manageable. At this time, management believes reserves are adequate to absorb inherent losses that are expected upon the ultimate resolution of these credits.

Non-performing Commercial Insurance Premium Finance Receivables

The table below presents the level of non-performing property and casualty premium finance receivables as of June 30, 2014, March 31, 2014 and June 30, 2013 and the amount of net charge-offs for the quarters then ended.

  June 30, March 31, June 30,
(Dollars in thousands) 2014 2014 2013
Non-performing premium finance receivables -- commercial $ 22,573 $ 21,325 $ 20,276
- as a percent of premium finance receivables - commercial outstanding 0.95% 0.97% 0.94%
Net charge-offs of premium finance receivables - commercial $ 1,180 $ 891 $ 1,027
- annualized as a percent of average premium finance receivables - commercial 0.20% 0.16% 0.20%

Fluctuations in this category may occur due to timing and nature of account collections from insurance carriers. The Company's underwriting standards, regardless of the condition of the economy, have remained consistent. We anticipate that net charge-offs and non-performing asset levels in the near term will continue to be at levels that are within acceptable operating ranges for this category of loans. Management is comfortable with administering the collections at this level of non-performing property and casualty premium finance receivables and believes reserves are adequate to absorb inherent losses that are expected upon the ultimate resolution of these credits.

Due to the nature of collateral for commercial premium finance receivables, it customarily takes 60-150 days to convert the collateral into cash. Accordingly, the level of non-performing commercial premium finance receivables is not necessarily indicative of the loss inherent in the portfolio. In the event of default, Wintrust has the power to cancel the insurance policy and collect the unearned portion of the premium from the insurance carrier. In the event of cancellation, the cash returned in payment of the unearned premium by the insurer should generally be sufficient to cover the receivable balance, the interest and other charges due. Due to notification requirements and processing time by most insurance carriers, many receivables will become delinquent beyond 90 days while the insurer is processing the return of the unearned premium. Management continues to accrue interest until maturity as the unearned premium is ordinarily sufficient to pay-off the outstanding balance and contractual interest due.

The Company's approach to restructuring loans, excluding those acquired with evidence of credit quality deterioration since origination, is built on its credit risk rating system which requires credit management personnel to assign a credit risk rating to each loan at the time of each modification. In each case, the loan officer is responsible for recommending a credit risk rating for each loan and ensuring the credit risk ratings are appropriate. These credit risk ratings are then reviewed and approved by the bank's chief credit officer and/or concurrence credit officer. Credit risk ratings are determined by evaluating a number of factors including a borrower's financial strength, cash flow coverage, collateral protection and guarantees. The Company's credit risk rating scale is one through ten with higher scores indicating higher risk. In the case of loans rated six or worse following modification, the Company's Managed Assets Division evaluates the loan and the credit risk rating and determines that the loan has been restructured to be reasonably assured of repayment and of performance according to the modified terms and is supported by a current, well-documented credit assessment of the borrower's financial condition and prospects for repayment under the revised terms.

A modification of a loan, excluding those acquired with evidence of credit quality deterioration since origination, with an existing credit risk rating of six or worse or a modification of any other credit, which will result in a restructured credit risk rating of six or worse must be reviewed for TDR classification. In that event, our Managed Assets Division conducts an overall credit and collateral review. A modification of a loan is considered to be a TDR if both (1) the borrower is experiencing financial difficulty and (2) for economic or legal reasons, the bank grants a concession to a borrower that it would not otherwise consider. The modification of a loan, excluding those acquired with evidence of credit quality deterioration since origination, where the credit risk rating is five or better both before and after such modification is not considered to be a TDR. Based on the Company's credit risk rating system, it considers that borrowers whose credit risk rating is five or better are not experiencing financial difficulties and therefore, are not considered TDRs.

All credits determined to be a TDR will continue to be classified as a TDR in all subsequent periods, unless the borrower has been in compliance with the loan's modified terms for a period of six months (including over a calendar year-end) and the modified interest rate represented a market rate at the time of a restructuring. The Managed Assets Division, in consultation with the respective loan officer, determines whether the modified interest rate represented a current market rate at the time of restructuring. Using knowledge of current market conditions and rates, competitive pricing on recent loan originations, and an assessment of various characteristics of the modified loan (including collateral position and payment history), an appropriate market rate for a new borrower with similar risk is determined. If the modified interest rate meets or exceeds this market rate for a new borrower with similar risk, the modified interest rate represents a market rate at the time of restructuring. Additionally, before removing a loan from TDR classification, a review of the current or previously measured impairment on the loan and any concerns related to future performance by the borrower is conducted. If concerns exist about the future ability of the borrower to meet its obligations under the loans based on a credit review by the Managed Assets Division, the TDR classification is not removed from the loan. Loans classified as TDRs that are re-modified subsequent to the initial determination will continue to be classified as TDRs following the re-modification, unless the requirements for removal from TDR classification discussed above are satisfied at the time of the re-modification.

TDRs are reviewed at the time of modification and on a quarterly basis to determine if a specific reserve is needed. The carrying amount of the loan is compared to the expected payments to be received, discounted at the loan's original rate, or for collateral dependent loans, to the fair value of the collateral. Any shortfall is recorded as a specific reserve. The Company, in accordance with ASC 310-10, continues to individually measure impairment of these loans after the TDR classification is removed.

Each TDR was reviewed for impairment at June 30, 2014 and approximately $4.9 million of impairment was present and appropriately reserved for through the Company's normal reserving methodology in the Company's allowance for loan losses. For TDRs in which impairment is calculated by the present value of future cash flows, the Company records interest income representing the decrease in impairment resulting from the passage of time during the respective period, which differs from interest income from contractually required interest on these specific loans. For the three months ended June 30, 2014 and 2013, the Company recorded $103,000 and $296,000, respectively, in interest income representing this decrease in impairment. For the six months ended June 30, 2014 and 2013, the Company recorded $235,000 and $522,000, respectively, in interest income.

Covered Assets

In conjunction with FDIC-assisted transactions, the Company entered into loss share agreements with the FDIC. These agreements cover realized losses on loans, foreclosed real estate and certain other assets. These loss share assets are measured separately from the loan portfolios because they are not contractually embedded in the loans and are not transferable with the loans should the Company choose to dispose of them. Fair values at the acquisition dates were estimated based on projected cash flows available for loss-share based on the credit adjustments estimated for each loan pool and the loss share percentages. The loss share assets are also separately measured from the related loans and foreclosed real estate and recorded separately on the Consolidated Statements of Condition. Subsequent to the acquisition date, reimbursements received from the FDIC for actual incurred losses will reduce the loss share assets. Additional expected losses, to the extent such expected losses result in the recognition of an allowance for loan losses, will increase the loss share assets. The loss share agreements with the FDIC require the Company to reimburse the FDIC in the event that actual losses on covered assets are lower than the original loss estimates agreed upon with the FDIC with respect of such assets in the loss share agreements. The allowance for loan losses for loans acquired in FDIC-assisted transactions is determined without giving consideration to the amounts recoverable through loss share agreements (since the loss share agreements are separately accounted for and thus presented "gross" on the balance sheet). On the Consolidated Statements of Income, the provision for credit losses is reported net of changes in the amount recoverable under the loss share agreements. Reductions to expected losses, to the extent such reductions to expected losses are the result of an improvement to the actual or expected cash flows from the covered assets, will reduce the loss share assets. The increases in cash flows for the purchased loans are recognized as interest income prospectively.

The following table provides a comparative analysis for the period end balances of the covered asset components and any changes in the allowance for covered loan losses.

Changes in Accretable Yield

The excess of cash flows expected to be collected over the carrying value of loans accounted for under ASC 310-30 is referred to as the accretable yield and is recognized in interest income using an effective yield method over the remaining life of the pool of loans. The accretable yield is affected by:

  • Changes in interest rate indices for variable rate loans accounted for under ASC 310-30 – Expected future cash flows are based on the variable rates in effect at the time of the regular evaluations of cash flows expected to be collected;
  • Changes in prepayment assumptions – Prepayments affect the estimated life of loans accounted for under ASC 310-30 which may change the amount of interest income, and possibly principal, expected to be collected; and
  • Changes in the expected principal and interest payments over the estimated life – Updates to expected cash flows are driven by the credit outlook and actions taken with borrowers. Changes in expected future cash flows from loan modifications are included in the regular evaluations of cash flows expected to be collected.

The following table provides activity for the accretable yield of loans accounted for under ASC 310-30.

(1) Net revenue includes net interest income and non-interest income
(2) See "Supplemental Financial Measures/Ratios" for additional information on this performance measure/ratio.
(3) The net overhead ratio is calculated by netting total non-interest expense and total non-interest income, annualizing this amount, and dividing by that period's total average assets. A lower ratio indicates a higher degree of efficiency.
(4) The efficiency ratio is calculated by dividing total non-interest expense by tax-equivalent net revenue (less securities gains or losses). A lower ratio indicates more efficient revenue generation.
(5) Capital ratios for current quarter-end are estimated.
(6) The allowance for credit losses includes both the allowance for loan losses and the allowance for unfunded lending-related commitments, but excluding the allowance for covered loan losses.
(7) Total shareholders' equity minus preferred stock and total intangible assets divided by total assets minus total intangible assets
(8) Asset quality ratios exclude covered loans.
