“TBB remains one of the newest banks in the country,” said Ramsey K. Hamadi, Chief Executive Officer. “The Bank opened March 16th simultaneously with the Pandemic lockdown. In the two quarters that followed, the Bank grew from $51.2 million in assets at March 31, 2020 to $241.3 million in assets at September 30, 2020. During this six-month period, the Bank has been pivotal for Triad’s economic health. In its opening months, the Bank originated more than $100 million of Paycheck Protection Program loans to approximately 350 businesses. These loans protected over 12,000 jobs in the Triad business community.  In the four months that followed this program, the Bank transitioned to focus on its core business that included originating nearly $86 million loans and funding those loans with $94 million of deposits from businesses and private bank customers.”

September Quarter Results

The Bank had a net loss of $1.2 million or $0.24 per share in each of the June and September quarters. However, when excluding the provision for loan losses, the quarter’s operating loss declined 26% to $758,000, an improvement of $262,000 from the June quarter’s loss of $1.0 million. The Bank’s net interest margin rose 29 basis points to 1.74% in the September quarter from 1.44% in the June quarter. Notably the average balance of core loans increased from $4.0 million to $32.7 million and the weighted average yield on these loans increased from 3.34% to 4.15% in the June and September quarters, respectively. Hamadi commented: “During the capital raise, our proforma financial statements anticipated the Bank’s operations would be breakeven at the end of the sixth quarter with the seventh quarter being profitable. Through two quarters, our results indicate we should meet or beat our projections. Our loan and deposit growth rates are exceeding expectations and the margins we projected also appear attainable.  Further, our costs are directly in line with the results forecasted.”

Core Lending and Deposit Activity

The Bank grew core loans by $36.0 million to $49.9 million during the September quarter. The Bank also originated $72.2 million in core loans, which included $36.0 million in funded loan balances, $25.7 million in unfunded loan commitments and $10.5 million in loan participations sold to other financial institutions. For the six-month period, the Bank originated $195 million which included $108 million of PPP loans, $49.9 million of funded core loans, $25.7 million in unfunded loan commitments and $13.5 million in loan participations sold. The unfunded loan commitments consist primarily of operating lines of credit to commercial and industrial companies (“C & I”) and unfunded construction projects. At September 30, 2020, 70% of the Bank’s loan portfolio was C&I in nature:

Core deposits increased $24.3 million and totaled $93.4 million at September 30, 2020. Money market accounts of businesses were the leading product. Total money market account balances increased $36.2 million to $70.0 million, but growth in money market balances was partially offset by a $13.9 million decline in demand deposit accounts. The decline in demand deposit accounts was primarily due to withdrawals of PPP loan proceeds.  For the September quarter, the Bank opened 197 new deposit accounts, bringing the total number of accounts opened to more than 500 in the first six months. Of all deposits, business treasury relationships are the largest and most profitable. These deposit relationships have the most activity which generates fee income and are the Bank’s lowest cost deposit relationships. Total treasury relationships increased from 23 companies at June 30, 2020 to 60 companies at September 30, 2020. Twelve other businesses are in process of converting to Triad Business Bank’s treasury systems and numerous other businesses are evaluating our services. Robin Hager, President and Chief Operating Officer, commented, “We chose a Jack Henry Silverlake product for our core systems specifically because it offers what we believe is the best suite of Treasury Management products on the market. These systems are making a difference.  Our customers are bringing us more business relationships than they planned because of the quality of our systems and products.”

PPP Program Update

At September 30, 2020, the Bank had $100.1 million of PPP loans outstanding to more than 340 local and regional businesses. In addition, the Bank had unamortized fees of $2.4 million ($1.8 million net of deferred costs) on these loans. Barring changes in the PPP loan forgiveness process, the Bank anticipates recognizing the balance of these fees in the December quarter 2020 and the March quarter of 2021. The Bank received the first of the forgiveness payments from the U.S. Treasury in October.  

Noninterest Expense

Noninterest expense increased $116,000 to $1.6 million for the September quarter compared to the prior quarter. The increase in expenses was primarily due to the Bank converting from a cash basis to an accrual basis of accounting for certain items such as data processing and facility costs which resulted in the recognition of four months of expense instead of three months.

Credit Risk

The Bank had $0 of nonperforming assets and $0 of substandard assets at September 30, 2020. The Bank’s emerging loan portfolio is being underwritten with an eye on the impact COVID-19 is having on cashflows of borrowers. Many businesses are prospering in the current environment and have either stable or expanding revenues. By building a loan portfolio as the impact of the COVID pandemic unfolded, the Bank has been able to assess credit risk with a high level of clarity.

Deferred Tax Asset, Non-GAAP Measure

The Bank’s tangible book value at September 30, 2020 was $8.90. Net operating losses during the organization period and during the first six months of operations have created a deferred tax asset of $954,000. This asset is being carried at $0 until the Bank’s core operations become profitable. At that time, the valuation allowance will be reversed. At September 30, 2020, the valuation allowance lowered tangible book value by $0.19 from $9.09 (a non-GAAP measurement).


“Triad Business Bank has had an exceptional beginning which should propel the Bank forward to our near-term goal, which is to become profitable within six quarters. The December and March quarters are expected to have high loan growth activity due to a continued strong loan pipeline. In addition, we believe the December and March quarters will benefit by realization of PPP loan fees as loan forgiveness payments are received. This rapid start has prompted an acceleration of our business plan.  The loan and deposit pipelines are stronger than we had projected, and we anticipate a continued rise in revenues will follow. We expect that the net interest margin will continue to widen as core loans replace PPP loans and cash as the primary source of earning assets,” Hamadi commented.
