Eagle Bancorp, Inc. Announces Record Net Income for Second Quarter 2021 of $48.0 Million or $1.50 per Share

Bethesda, Maryland, UNITED STATES


BETHESDA, Md., July 21, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Eagle Bancorp, Inc. (the “Company”) (NASDAQ: EGBN), the parent company of EagleBank (the “Bank”), today announced record net income of $48.0 million for the second quarter of 2021. These earnings included $4.7 million of accelerated interest income from the sale of Paycheck Protection Program ("PPP") loans and a $4.6 million reversal from the allowance for credit losses on loans and the reserve for unfunded commitments (as compared to the second quarter of 2020, which included a provision of $20.7 million to the allowance for credit losses on loans and the reserve for unfunded commitments).

As compared to $28.9 million net income for the second quarter of 2020, this was a 66% increase. Net income per basic and diluted common share was $1.50 for the second quarter of 2021 compared to $0.90 for the second quarter of 2020. The increase in earnings is largely due to the overall improvement in the economy, in particular, the outlook for credit quality.

Net income for the six months ended June 30, 2021, was $91.5 million, as compared to $52.0 million for the six months ended June 30, 2020, a 76% increase. Net income per basic and diluted common share for the six months ended June 30, 2021 was $2.87 and $2.86, respectively, compared to $1.60 for both basic and diluted for the six months ended June 30, 2020.

Susan G. Riel, President and Chief Executive Officer of Eagle Bancorp, Inc., commented, "We ended the second quarter of 2021 with record net income, a modest increase in non-PPP related loans,4 continued strengthening in asset quality and a high level of capital. Earnings included a reversal to the allowance for credit losses as our outlook on the economy has continued to improve, the sale of a significant portion of our PPP loans and another substantial gain on sale of residential mortgages from our residential mortgage division, which continues to generate strong results."

"During the quarter, we made a decision to sell a significant portion of our PPP loans, which generated nearly $4.7 million in accelerated net deferred fees and costs into interest income. The sale was to a well-regarded firm with significant expertise in the ongoing servicing and processing associated with PPP loans. The sale enables us to free up personnel to focus on originating new business and to continue to provide a high level of service to our clients."

"While we remain a leader among our peers with an efficiency ratio of 37.1%, we continually seek out ways to control or reduce expenses. This quarter we closed our Rosslyn, Virginia branch as it had an expiring lease and our customers can be served from other northern Virginia branches. The combined annual pre-tax cost savings in rental expense will be about $263 thousand."

"Additionally, given the Bank's robust capital levels, we requested and received board and regulatory approval earlier this month to redeem $150 million of subordinated debt issued in 2016. In the second quarter of 2021, the rate on the debt was 5.00%, which translates into an annualized pre-tax cost savings of $7.5 million when redeemed."

"While loan growth remains challenging, we mentioned in last quarter's earnings call we would be more 'assertive' with loan opportunities, and we are pleased to report that this quarter our funding for new loan originations outpaced payoffs which increased total loans, excluding held for sale and PPP loans, by almost $60 million. We believe the Washington, D.C. area is one of the most resilient and strongest economies in the nation and we remain optimistic about the continued reopening of businesses, and the positive impact the government stimulus continues to have on the regional economy. At quarter end, our shareholders equity reached $1.3 billion and our total risk-based capital was 17.98%. This gives us the ability to originate loans for large commercial projects, as well as a lot of runway to grow the loan portfolio as economic conditions continue to improve and more opportunities arise."

"For our shareholders, at the end of the quarter our board increased the dividend to $0.35 per share, up from $0.25 per share in the previous quarter."

As we look toward the second half of the year with optimism, we remain focused on strong and balanced operating performance. We will continue to proactively manage any asset quality concerns while delivering best-in-class service to our customers. We will continue to exercise prudent oversight of expenses, while retaining an infrastructure that is competitive, supports our growth initiatives, and proactively enhances our risk management systems as we position ourselves for future growth.”

"We once again thank all of our employees for their commitment in serving the needs of our clients and communities. Additionally, we remain committed to a culture of respect, diversity and inclusion in both the workplace and the communities we serve."

Income Statement

  • Net interest income was $84.6 million for the second quarter of 2021, up from $81.4 million for the second quarter of 2020. The increase of $3.3 million, or 4.0%, was primarily related to the acceleration of $4.7 million in net deferred fees and costs into interest income as a result of the sale of $169.8 million in PPP loans in the second quarter of 2021. We also saw a 10% increase in average earning assets offset by a reduction in net interest margin when comparing the second quarter of 2021 to the same period in 2020.

    Net interest income was $167.3 million for the six months ended June 30, 2021, up from $161.1 million for the six months ended June 30, 2020.
  • Net interest margin was 3.04% for the second quarter of 2021, as compared to 3.26% for the second quarter of 2020. Absent the sale of $169.8 million of PPP loans, which accelerated $4.7 million of previously deferred net fees and costs into interest income, the net interest margin for the second quarter of 2021 would have been 2.88%5. The decrease in margin primarily reflects a lower rate environment as well as significantly higher cash balances from strong deposit inflows.

    Net interest margin was 3.02% for the six months ended June 30, 2021, as compared to 3.36% for the six months ended June 30, 2020.

  • Adjusted pre-provision net revenue ("Adjusted PPNR"),6 a non-GAAP measure, was $54.2 million for the second quarter of 2021, compared to $59.0 million the second quarter of 2020. As a percent of average assets, adjusted PPNR for the second quarter of 2021 was 1.90%, down from 2.30% for the second quarter of 2020. This decline in Adjusted PPNR to average assets was a result of lower non-interest income and higher non-interest expenses while average assets increased by 10.9%.

Pre-provision net revenue was $109.5 million for the six months ended June 30, 2021, compared to $106.8 million for the six months ended June 30, 2020.

  • Provision for credit losses on loans resulted in a reversal of $3.9 million for the second quarter of 2021, compared to a provision of $19.7 million for the second quarter of 2020. The reversal was primarily driven by the improved macroeconomic outlook and the improvement of credits in the loan portfolio.

    Provision for credit losses resulted in a reversal of $6.2 million for the six months ended June 30, 2021, as compared to a provision of $34.0 million for the six months ended June 30, 2020.
  • Provision for unfunded commitments resulted in a reversal of $761 thousand for the second quarter of 2021, compared to a provision of $940 thousand for the second quarter of 2020. The reversal was driven primarily by the improved macroeconomic outlook.

    Provision for unfunded commitments resulted in a reversal of $1.2 million for the six months ended June 30, 2021, as compared to a provision of $3.1 million for the six months ended June 30, 2020.
  • Noninterest income was $10.9 million for the second quarter of 2021, as compared to $12.5 million for the second quarter 2020, a 13% decrease. The decrease was primarily due to a decline in loan fees and other fees, which was partially offset by FHA multifamily trade premiums of $2.6 million and $3.5 million in gain on sale from residential mortgage loans. While we are encouraged by the pipeline and current quarter contribution of the FHA multifamily business, revenue from this business can be uneven quarter to quarter. Residential mortgage loan locked commitments were $248.3 million for the second quarter of 2021 as compared to $418.0 million for the second quarter of 2020.

    Noninterest income was $21.5 million for the six months ended June 30, 2021, compared to $18.0 million for the six months ended June 30, 2020.
  • Noninterest expenses were $35.5 million for the second quarter 2021 compared to $34.9 million for the second quarter of 2020. The major changes between the second quarter of 2021 and the second quarter of 2020 were as follows:
    • Salaries and employee benefits were $19.9 million, up $2.8 million, as a result of higher incentive bonus accruals based on the economic outlook and increases in share based compensation.
    • Expenses for Other Real Estate Owned ("OREO") were $71 thousand, down by $877 thousand. The second quarter of 2020 included construction costs to complete a property for eventual sale.
    • Legal, accounting and professional fees were $3.5 million, down $476 thousand. 

Noninterest expenses were $73.5 million for the six months ended June 30, 2021, compared to $72.2 million for the six months ended June 30, 2020.

  • Efficiency ratio was 37.1% for the second quarter of 2021 compared to 37.2% for the second quarter of 2020. The efficiency ratio was relatively flat because the increase in net interest income was offset by a decrease in noninterest income and an increase in noninterest expenses.

    The efficiency ratio was 38.9% for the six months ended June 30, 2021, compared to 40.3% for the six months ended June 30, 2020.
  • Effective income tax rate for the second quarter of 2021 was 25.8% and for the second quarter of 2020 was 24.6%.

    Effective income tax rate for the six months ended June 30, 2021 and 2020 was 25.5%.

Balance Sheet

  • Total assets at June 30, 2021 were $11.0 billion, down 1.4% from year-end and up 11.8% from a year ago. The increase in assets from a year ago was primarily driven by increases to cash and investments as a result of large deposit inflows in the second half of 2020.

  • Investment portfolio had a balance of $1.7 billion at June 30, 2021, up 46% from year-end and up 118% from a year ago. We will continue to judiciously deploy accumulated excess liquidity into the investment portfolio to achieve higher yields over cash alternatives. Investments made during the second quarter of 2021 were primarily 20 year, 2% agency mortgage backed securities and callable agency bonds.

  • Total loans (excluding loans held for sale) were $7.3 billion as of June 30, 2021, a decrease of 6.5% from year-end and a decrease of 9.5% from a year ago. If PPP loans were excluded, the balance was $7.0 billion at June 30, 2021, a decrease of 3.9% from year-end and a decrease of 7.2% from a year ago.7

On a linked quarter basis, total loans (excluding loans held for sale and PPP loans) at June 30, 2021, increased by $59.8 million from the prior quarter end as funding for new loan originations and advances increased and payoffs and paydowns decreased. Originations of loans held for investment for the quarter were at their highest level since the third quarter of 2019

Unfunded commitments declined to $2.0 billion as of June 30, 2021 and December 31, 2020, as compared to $2.1 billion a year ago.

In regards to loan yields, the ongoing low interest rate environment and our focus on strong commercial real estate credits secured by stabilized income producing properties, rather than higher risk and higher yielding construction lending continues to bring down the yield on the loan portfolio (excluding the impact of the PPP loan sale).

  • The yield on the loan portfolio was 4.79% for the second quarter of 2021 as compared to 4.63% for the second quarter of 2020. The increase in yield was driven by the sale of PPP loans which accelerated net deferred fees and costs into interest income. Excluding PPP loans and the impact of the PPP loan sale, the adjusted loan yield (a non-GAAP measure) was 4.52% for the second quarter of 2021, down from 4.70% for the second quarter of 2020.8
  • The yield on the loan portfolio was 4.72% for the six months ended June 30, 2021 as compared to 4.84% for the six months ended June 30, 2020.

  • Allowance for credit losses was 1.28% of gross loans at June 30, 2021, compared to 1.41% at year-end and 1.36% a year ago. Adjusted to exclude PPP loans, which are fully government guaranteed, the allowance for credit losses was 1.32%, compared to 1.50% at year-end and 1.44% a year ago.10 The reduction in the allowance for credit losses for the six months ended June 30, 2021 is due to a provision reversal of $6.2 million and net charge-offs of $10.8 million.

    Net charge-offs for the second quarter of 2021 were $5.6 million as compared to $7.1 million for second quarter of 2020. Net charge-offs for the quarter consisted of one CRE loan on an office building for $3.5 million with the remaining balance being smaller CRE and C&I loans. On an annualized basis, this was 0.30% of average loans (excluding loans held for sale) for the second quarter of 2021, as compared to 0.36% for the second quarter of 2020.

  • Total deposits were $9.0 billion at June 30, 2021, down 1.9% from the year-end, and up 13.6% from a year ago. The decline of deposits in the second quarter of 2021 allowed the Bank to reduce its excess liquidity as it deployed funds into the investment portfolio.

    In terms of deposit mix, the Bank continues to focus on achieving core deposit growth. The mix of average noninterest deposits to average total deposits remained favorable at 33% for the second quarter of 2021, as compared to 30% for the second quarter of 2020.

    In regards to deposit costs, in the second quarter of 2021, the Bank continued to see higher priced CDs runoff and slightly reduced rates paid on higher balance accounts.

    • In the second quarter of 2021, CDs with a total balance of $200 million and a weighted average rate of 1.21% matured. These CDs had a weighted average term of 16 months at issuance.

    • The cost of funds was 0.37% in the second quarter of 2021, as compared to 0.65% in the second quarter of 2020.

  • Total shareholders’ equity was $1.3 billion at June 30, 2021, up 5.3% from year-end, and up 10.0% from a year ago. For the six months ended June 30, 2021, increases in shareholders' equity from earnings were partially offset by common dividends declared of $7.9 million ($0.25 per share) in the first quarter of 2021 and $11.2 million ($0.35 per share) in the second quarter of 2021.

    • Book value per share was $40.87, up 4.7% from year-end and up 10.9% from a year ago.
    • Tangible book value per share was $37.5811, up 5.1% from year end and up 11.8% from a year ago.
  • Capital ratios for the Company remain strong and substantially in excess of regulatory minimum requirements. Regulatory ratios based on risk based capital ratios continue to trend up, driven by strong earnings and relatively modest change in risk weighted assets.

Additional Commentary

  • Subordinated debt: In early July, we requested and received board and regulatory approval to redeem $150 million of subordinated debt issued in 2016. In the second quarter of 2021, the rate on the debt was 5.00%, which translates into an annualized pre-tax cost savings of $7.5 million when redeemed. This redemption will accelerate about $1.3 million in deferred costs in the third quarter of 2021.

  • Cost savings initiatives: The Bank continues to pursue its "branch light" strategy to improve efficiency while putting more emphasis on relationships and technology. After a full analysis of our branch structure, the Bank closed its Rosslyn Branch in June 2021 as its lease expired. The annual cost savings in rent, common area maintenance and taxes is about $263 thousand, and there was no write-off of leasehold improvements as all improvements had been fully amortized upon the expiration of the lease.

    All of the employees from the Rosslyn Branch have filled, or will be filling, vacant positions within the Company, reducing the need to hire additional personnel.
  • Paycheck protection program: During the second quarter of 2021, the Bank sold $169.8 million of PPP loans to a third party. As a result of this sale, the Bank accelerated $4.7 million of previously deferred net fees and costs into interest income. At June 30, 2021, the Bank had an outstanding balance of PPP loans of $238.0 million.

  • COVID-19 and watch-rated loans: Beginning in the fourth quarter of 2020, all loans that received a second COVID-19 deferral or payment modification were downgraded to a watch-rating if not already rated as such. This was done to raise the visibility of these loans within the loan portfolio. After these COVID-19 deferred or modified loans demonstrate six months of payments and sustained performance, they may be considered for removal as a watch-rated loan. Watch-rated loans at June 30, 2021 were $545 million, of which $451 million were loans that received a COVID-19 deferral or payment modification.

  • Non-performing loans and assets: On a linked quarter basis, both non-performing loans and assets decreased.

    • Nonperforming loans were $49.5 million or 0.68% of total loans at June 30, 2021, down from $52.3 million or 0.69% at the prior quarter end, and down from $59.0 million or 0.74% of total loans a year ago.
    • Nonperforming assets were $54.5 million or 0.50% of total assets at June 30, 2021, down from $57.3 million or 0.51% at the prior quarter end, and down from $67.2 million or 0.69% of total assets a year ago. At June 30, 2021, other real estate owned was $5.0 million, unchanged from the prior quarter end.
  • Dividend: On June 30, 2021, the Board of Directors declared a quarterly cash dividend of $0.35 per common share payable on August 2, 2021 to shareholders of record on July 22, 2021. This represents a $0.10 per share increase over the prior quarterly dividend of $0.25 per share.

  • Stock repurchase plan: In December 2020, the Board of Directors approved a new stock repurchase plan of up to 1,588,848 shares, or approximately 5% of shares outstanding, which commenced January 1, 2021. In the second quarter of 2021 there were no repurchases of shares under the stock repurchase plan. In the first quarter of 2021, the Company completed repurchases of 1,466 shares for $62,000 at an average cost of $42.46 per share under the stock repurchase plan.
  • Legal update: From time to time, the Company and its subsidiaries are involved in various legal proceedings incidental to their business in the ordinary course, including matters in which damages in various amounts are claimed. Based on information currently available, the Company does not believe that the liabilities (if any) resulting from such legal proceedings will have a material effect on the financial position of the Company. However, in light of the inherent uncertainties involved in such matters, ongoing legal expenses or an adverse outcome in one or more of these matters could materially and adversely affect the Company’s financial condition, results of operations or cash flows in any particular reporting period, as well as its reputation.

    On July 24, 2019, a putative class action lawsuit was filed in the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York (the “SDNY”) against the Company, its current and former President and Chief Executive Officer and its current and former Chief Financial Officer, on behalf of persons similarly situated, who purchased or otherwise acquired Company securities between March 2, 2015 and July 17, 2019. On November 7, 2019, the Court appointed a lead plaintiff and lead counsel in that matter, and on January 21, 2020, the lead plaintiff filed an amended complaint on behalf of the same class against the same defendants as well as the Company’s former General Counsel. The plaintiff alleges that certain of the Company’s 10-K reports and other public statements and disclosures contained materially false or misleading statements about, among other things, the effectiveness of its internal controls and related party loans, in violation of Section 10(b) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 and Rule 10b-5 thereunder and Section 20(a) of that act, resulting in injury to the purported class members as a result of the decline in the value of the Company’s common stock following the disclosure of increased legal expenses associated with certain government investigations involving the Company. As previously disclosed by the Company, on December 24, 2020, by stipulation of the parties, the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York stayed the putative class action lawsuit pending a non-binding mediation that had been scheduled for April 13, 2021. Immediately following the non-binding mediation, the parties continued a settlement dialogue and reached an agreement to settle the putative class action lawsuit, involving a total payment by the Company of $7.5 million in exchange for the release of all of the defendants from all alleged claims in the class action suit, without any admission or concession of wrongdoing by the Company or the other defendants. The Company expects that the full amount of a final settlement will be paid by the Company’s insurance carriers under applicable insurance policies. On June 28, 2021, the lead plaintiff filed the executed Stipulation and Agreement of Settlement with the Court, along with an unopposed motion for preliminary approval of the proposed settlement. The Court has scheduled a preliminary approval hearing for August 12, 2021; the Company anticipates that a final approval hearing will be held later this year. There can be no assurance, however, that the agreement will receive court approval and/or meet all other conditions.

    As previously disclosed in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2020, on January 25, 2021, the Company entered into a settlement agreement with respect to a previously disclosed shareholder demand letter, covering substantially the same subject matters as the disclosed civil securities class action litigation pending in the SDNY. The letter demanded that the Board undertake an investigation into the Board’s and management’s alleged violations of law and alleged breaches of fiduciary duties, and take appropriate actions following such investigation. As required by DC Superior Court administrative procedures, shareholder’s counsel first filed a derivative action complaint against the individual directors and officers named in the demand letter, and the Company as nominal Defendant, before filing the executed Stipulation and Agreement of Settlement accompanied by the shareholder’s brief in support of its unopposed motion to approve the settlement. Court approval of the settlement remains pending. Although the Company believes the Stipulation and Agreement of Settlement is in the best interests of the Company’s shareholders, there can be no assurance that it will be approved by the Court.

    The Company has received various document requests and subpoenas from the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “Commission”), banking regulators and U.S. Attorney’s offices in connection with investigations, which the Company believes relate to the Company’s identification, classification and disclosure of related party transactions; the retirement of certain former officers and directors; and the relationship of the Company and certain of its former officers and directors with a local public official, among other things. The Company is cooperating with these investigations. There have been no regulatory restrictions placed on the Company’s ability to fully engage in its banking business as presently conducted as a result of these ongoing investigations. In connection with the Commission’s investigation, which we initially disclosed on Form 8-K on July 18, 2019, our current Chief Financial Officer recently received a Wells Notice from the Commission Staff that the Staff has made a preliminary determination to recommend to the Commission enforcement actions against him. Neither the Company nor any other current employee or director has received a Wells Notice.

    The Company and our Chief Financial Officer are continuing to cooperate with the Staff’s investigation, and we understand that our Chief Financial Officer has made a submission to the SEC in response to the Wells Notice. The Company has, in addition, initiated discussions with the Staff about a potential resolution or settlement of the Staff’s investigation with respect to the Company. The Company is hopeful that these discussions will lead to a resolution of the investigation in the next few months as it relates to the Company and any current employees and directors on a mutually agreeable basis, but there can be no assurance that will be the case. There also can be no assurance that this would result in resolution of any charges against former employees or directors, given the Staff’s ongoing review of the factual record. Any agreements reached by the Company with the Staff would be subject to approval by the Commission, and there can be no assurance that it would be approved. We are unable to predict the outcome of the investigation or these discussions or whether any potential resolution would have a material impact on the Company.

    The Company has also recently initiated discussions with the Staff of the Federal Reserve Board about a potential resolution or settlement of its investigation with respect to the Company. With respect to the other investigations described above, we are unable to predict their duration, scope or outcome.

    The amount of legal fees and expenditures for the year is net of expected insurance coverage where we believe we have a high likelihood of recovery pursuant to our D&O insurance policies, but does not include any offset for potential claims we may have in the future as to which recovery is impossible to predict at this time.

(1) Tangible common equity to tangible assets (the "tangible common equity ratio"), tangible book value per common share, and the annualized return on average tangible common equity are non-GAAP financial measures derived from GAAP based amounts. The Company calculates the tangible common equity ratio by excluding the balance of intangible assets from common shareholders' equity and dividing by tangible assets. The Company calculates tangible book value per common share by dividing tangible common equity by common shares outstanding, as compared to book value per common share, which the Company calculates by dividing common shareholders' equity by common shares outstanding. The Company calculates the annualized return on average tangible common equity ratio by dividing net income available to common shareholders by average tangible common equity which is calculated by excluding the average balance of intangible assets from the average common shareholders’ equity. The Company considers this information important to shareholders as tangible equity is a measure that is consistent with the calculation of capital for bank regulatory purposes, which excludes intangible assets from the calculation of risk based ratios and as such is useful for investors, regulators, management and others to evaluate capital adequacy and to compare against other financial institutions. The table below provides reconciliation of financial measures defined by GAAP with non-GAAP financial measures.
(2) Computed by dividing noninterest expense by the sum of net interest income and noninterest income. The efficiency ratio measures a bank’s overhead as a percentage of its revenue. 
(3) Excludes loans held for sale.

(1) Tangible common equity to tangible assets (the "tangible common equity ratio") and tangible book value per common share are non-GAAP financial measures derived from GAAP based amounts. The Company calculates the tangible common equity ratio by excluding the balance of intangible assets from common shareholders' equity and dividing by tangible assets. The Company calculates tangible book value per common share by dividing tangible common equity by common shares outstanding, as compared to book value per common share, which the Company calculates by dividing common shareholders' equity by common shares outstanding. The Company considers this information important to shareholders as tangible equity is a measure that is consistent with the calculation of capital for bank regulatory purposes, which excludes intangible assets from the calculation of risk based ratios and as such is useful for investors, regulators, management and others to evaluate capital adequacy and to compare against other financial institutions.
(2) Computed by dividing noninterest expense by the sum of net interest income and noninterest income.
(3) Excludes loans held for sale.
