Valley National Bancorp Reports a 26 Percent Increase in Second Quarter Net Income and Strong Net Interest Margin and Non-PPP Loan Growth

Wayne, New Jersey, UNITED STATES


NEW YORK, July 22, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Valley National Bancorp (NASDAQ:VLY), the holding company for Valley National Bank, today reported net income for the second quarter 2021 of $120.5 million, or $0.29 per diluted common share, as compared to the second quarter 2020 earnings of $95.6 million, or $0.23 per diluted common share, and net income of $115.7 million, or $0.28 per diluted common share, for the first quarter 2021. Excluding all non-core charges, our adjusted net income (a non-GAAP measure) was $126.6 million, or $0.30 per diluted common share, for the second quarter 2021, $95.9 million, or $0.23 per diluted common share, for second quarter 2020, and $115.8 million, or $0.28 per diluted common share, for the first quarter 2021. See further details below, including a reconciliation of our adjusted net income in the "Consolidated Financial Highlights" tables.

Key financial highlights for the second quarter:

  • Net Interest Income and Margin: Net interest income on a tax equivalent basis of $301.8 million for the second quarter 2021 increased $8.2 million and $18.2 million as compared to the first quarter 2021 and second quarter 2020, respectively. Our net interest margin on a tax equivalent basis increased by 4 basis points to 3.18 percent in the second quarter 2021 as compared to 3.14 percent for the first quarter 2021. The increases as compared to the first quarter 2021 were largely due to the continued run-off of maturing higher cost time deposits, lower overall cost of deposits, repayment of FHLB advances, and increased yield on our SBA Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) loan portfolio during the second quarter 2021. See the "Net Interest Income and Margin" section below for more details.
  • Loan Portfolio: Total loans decreased $229.0 million to $32.5 billion at June 30, 2021 from March 31, 2021 due to a $1.0 billion decrease in PPP loans within the commercial and industrial loan category. Offsetting this impact, our non-PPP loan portfolio increased $785.0 million, or 10.4 percent on an annualized basis to $31.1 billion at June 30, 2021 from $30.3 billion at March 31, 2021. The increase in non-PPP loans was largely driven by increases of $588.5 million, $166.5 million and $86.4 million in the commercial real estate, residential mortgage and auto loan categories, respectively. Additionally, our second quarter 2021 new and refinanced loan originations included approximately $254 million of residential mortgage loans originated for sale. Net gains on sales of residential loans were $10.1 million and $3.5 million in the second quarter 2021 and first quarter 2021, respectively. See the "Loans, Deposits and Other Borrowings" section below for more details.
  • Allowance and Provision for Credit Losses for Loans: The allowance for credit losses for loans totaled $353.7 million and $354.3 million at June 30, 2021 and March 31, 2021, respectively. During the second quarter 2021, we recorded a provision for credit losses for loans of $8.8 million as compared to $9.0 million and $41.1 million for the first quarter 2021 and second quarter 2020, respectively. The $8.8 million second quarter 2021 provision included a $3.0 million provision for unfunded credit commitments largely related to an increase of approximately $375 million in our unfunded construction loan commitments at June 30, 2021 as compared to March 31, 2021.
  • Credit Quality: Total accruing past due loans increased $27.5 million to $80.2 million, or 0.25 percent of total loans, at June 30, 2021 as compared to $52.8 million, or 0.16 percent of total loans, at March 31, 2021. Non-accrual loans represented 0.68 percent and 0.62 percent of total loans at June 30, 2021 and March 31, 2021, respectively. Net loan charge-offs totaled $9.4 million for the second quarter 2021 as compared to $6.1 million for the first quarter 2021. The increase in second quarter 2021 net loan charge-offs was primarily related to one $8.0 million commercial and industrial loan that was fully charged-off with related reserves of $4.0 million previously recorded at March 31, 2021. See the "Credit Quality" section below for more details.
  • Non-interest Income: Non-interest income increased $11.9 million to $43.1 million for the second quarter 2021 as compared to the first quarter 2021 mainly due to an increase of approximately $6.5 million in net gains on sales of residential mortgage loans, a $1.4 million increase in swap fee income related to certain new commercial loan transactions and an increase of $1.1 million in insurance commissions.
  • Non-interest Expense: Non-interest expense increased $11.7 million to $171.9 million for the second quarter 2021 as compared to the first quarter 2021 mainly due to an $8.4 million loss on extinguishment of debt recognized during the second quarter 2021. Additionally, salaries and employee benefits expense increased $3.0 million during the second quarter 2021 as compared to first quarter 2021 primarily due to higher cash incentive compensation accruals, strategic increases in our headcount to enhance lending and operations, and, to a lesser extent, increased residential mortgage commissions expense.
  • Loss on Extinguishment of Debt: In late June 2021, we prepaid approximately $248 million of long-term FHLB advances with contractual maturities through 2025 and a combined weighted average effective interest rate of 1.82 percent. The debt prepayment was funded by excess cash liquidity. As a result, the transaction was accounted for as an early debt extinguishment resulting in the aforementioned loss of $8.4 million reported within non-interest expense for the second quarter 2021.
  • Efficiency Ratio: Our efficiency ratio was 49.96 percent for the second quarter 2021 as compared to 49.46 percent and 48.01 percent for the first quarter 2021 and second quarter 2020, respectively. Our adjusted efficiency ratio was 46.64 percent for the second quarter 2021 as compared to 48.60 percent and 46.84 percent for the first quarter 2021 and second quarter 2020, respectively. See the "Consolidated Financial Highlights" tables below for additional information regarding our non-GAAP measures.
  • Performance Ratios: Annualized return on average assets (ROA), shareholders’ equity (ROE) and tangible ROE were 1.17 percent, 10.24 percent, and 14.79 percent for the second quarter 2021, respectively. Annualized ROA, ROE and tangible ROE, adjusted for non-core charges, were 1.23 percent, 10.76 percent and 15.54 percent for the second quarter 2021, respectively. See the "Consolidated Financial Highlights" tables below for additional information regarding our non-GAAP measures.

On June 29, 2021, Valley announced that it will acquire The Westchester Bank Holding Corporation (Westchester) and its principal subsidiary, The Westchester Bank, which is headquartered in White Plains, New York. The acquisition of this high-performing and growth-oriented commercial bank with total assets of approximately $1.3 billion and a seven branch network will provide Valley with a physical footprint and additional commercial lending expertise in the demographically attractive Westchester County, New York market. The acquisition is expected to close in the fourth quarter 2021, subject to standard regulatory approvals, approval of Westchester stockholders, as well as other customary conditions.

Ira Robbins, CEO and President commented, "Our solid second quarter 2021 core earnings were primarily driven by a net interest margin of 3.18 percent which continued to reflect our ability to lower our cost of funds, while maintaining sound loan pricing discipline in our very competitive markets. Linked quarter non-PPP loan growth was over 10 percent on an annualized basis. This exceptional growth was well-diversified across our consumer and commercial segments, and both our northeast and southeast geographies. "Mr. Robbins continued, “Additionally, we are very excited about our recently announced acquisition. We look forward to welcoming Westchester to Valley and working together to drive our future growth initiatives in the Westchester County market."

Net Interest Income and Margin

Net interest income on a tax equivalent basis totaling $301.8 million for the second quarter 2021 increased $8.2 million and $18.2 million as compared to the first quarter 2021 and second quarter 2020, respectively. The increase as compared to the first quarter 2021 was mainly due to (i) continued run-off of higher cost time deposits and some account balance migration to lower cost deposits without stated maturities, (ii) repayment of FHLB advances upon their maturity, (iii) the redemption of $60 million of callable 6.25 percent subordinated notes on April 1, 2021 and (iv) a slightly higher yield on the PPP loan portfolio due to the accelerated recognition of unearned loan fees for loans forgiven during the second quarter 2021. Interest expense of $32.7 million for the second quarter 2021 decreased $6.4 million as compared to the first quarter 2021 as we continue to reduce our cost of funding in the low rate environment. Interest income on a tax equivalent basis in the second quarter 2021 increased by $1.8 million to $334.5 million as compared to the first quarter 2021 mainly due to moderately higher earned fees on our loan portfolio driven by the accelerated recognition of unearned loan fees related to PPP loans that were forgiven during the second quarter 2021, partially offset by lower yields on our investment securities portfolio. See the "Loan, Deposit and Other Borrowings" section for more information on PPP loans.

Our net interest margin on a tax equivalent basis of 3.18 percent for the second quarter 2021 increased by 4 basis points and 18 basis points from 3.14 percent and 3.00 percent for the first quarter 2021 and second quarter 2020, respectively. The yield on average interest earning assets decreased by 3 basis points on a linked quarter basis, mostly due to the lower yield on our investment securities portfolio, a higher mix of excess cash liquidity held in low yielding overnight investments, and one additional day in the second quarter 2021 as compared to first quarter 2021. The yield on average loans increased by 2 basis points to 3.87 percent for the second quarter 2021 as compared to the first quarter 2021 partially due to the accelerated recognition of unearned PPP loan fees during the second quarter 2021. The overall cost of average interest bearing liabilities decreased 9 basis points to 0.51 percent for the second quarter 2021 as compared to the first quarter 2021 and was largely due to continued runoff of time deposits and the customer shift to lower cost deposits without stated maturities. Additionally, the net interest margin benefited from a 7 basis point decrease in the average cost of short-term borrowings driven by our greater reliance on funding from deposits and the repayment of FHLB advances during the second quarter 2021. Our cost of total average deposits was 0.21 percent for the second quarter 2021 as compared to 0.28 percent for the first quarter 2021.

Loans, Deposits and Other Borrowings

Loans. Loans decreased $229.0 million to approximately $32.5 billion at June 30, 2021 from March 31, 2021 due to a $1.0 billion decrease in PPP loans within the commercial and industrial loan category, partially offset by increases in the commercial real estate, residential mortgage and auto loan portfolios. Commercial real estate loans increased $588.5 million, or 13.9 percent on an annualized basis, to $17.5 billion at June 30, 2021 as compared to March 31, 2021 reflecting strong organic loan growth across our geographic footprint. Automobile loans increased $86.4 million, or 23.9 percent on an annualized basis, during the second quarter 2021 largely due to continued strong consumer demand seen across the auto industry during the period. Residential mortgage loans increased $166.5 million, or 16.4 percent on an annualized basis, during the second quarter 2021 mainly due to the strong new loan activity in the purchased home market, and, to a lesser extent, refinance loan volumes. During the second quarter 2021, we originated approximately $254 million of loans for sale. Residential mortgage loans held for sale at fair value totaled $159.3 million and $232.1 million at June 30, 2021 and March 31, 2021, respectively.

Deposits. Total deposits increased $609.6 million to approximately $33.2 billion at June 30, 2021 from March 31, 2021 due to increases of $1.3 billion and $475.9 million in the non-maturity interest bearing deposit and non-interest bearing deposit categories, respectively, partially offset by a $1.1 billion decrease in time deposits. The decrease in time deposits was driven by normal run-off of maturing retail and brokered CDs with some continued migration of retail balances to more liquid deposit product categories. Total brokered deposits (consisting of both time and money market deposit accounts) decreased approximately $800 million to $2.3 billion at June 30, 2021 as compared to $3.1 billion at March 31, 2021. Non-interest bearing deposits; savings, NOW and money market deposits; and time deposits represented approximately 32 percent, 55 percent and 13 percent of total deposits as of June 30, 2021, respectively.

Other Borrowings. Short-term borrowings decreased $230.3 million to $854.4 million at June 30, 2021 as compared to March 31, 2021 largely due to repayments of FHLB borrowings. Long-term borrowings decreased $357.2 million to $1.9 billion at June 30, 2021 as compared to March 31, 2021 mainly due to a combination of the prepayment of approximately $248 million long-term FHLB advances in June 2021, Valley's redemption of $60 million of 6.25 percent subordinated notes on April 1, 2021, and other normal repayments of maturing FHLB advances, partially offset by the issuance of $300 million of 3.00 percent subordinated notes.

On May 28, 2021, Valley issued $300 million of 3.00 percent fixed-to-floating rate subordinated notes due June 15, 2031, and callable in whole or in part on or after June 15, 2026 or upon the occurrence of certain events. In June 2021, Valley entered into a forward-starting interest rate swap related to the $300.0 million subordinated notes where Valley receives a fixed rate and pays a variable rate based on the Secured Overnight Financing Rate (SOFR) plus 2.187 percent.

Credit Quality

Non-Performing Assets (NPAs). Total NPAs, consisting of non-accrual loans, other real estate owned (OREO) and other repossessed assets increased $16.1 million to $226.6 million at June 30, 2021 as compared to March 31, 2021. The increase in NPAs was mainly due to a $17.6 million increase in non-accrual construction loans almost entirely related to one borrower relationship with $3.0 million of related allowance reserves at June 30, 2021. Non-accrual loans represented 0.68 percent of total loans at June 30, 2021 compared to 0.62 percent at March 31, 2021.

Non-performing Taxi Medallion Loan Portfolio. During second quarter 2021, we sold the majority of our Chicago taxi medallion loans for $4.5 million and charged-off $1.3 million of these loans to the reserve for credit losses for loans. We continue to closely monitor our non-performing New York City taxi medallion loans totaling $86.5 million and the remaining $721 thousand of the Chicago taxi medallion portfolio within the commercial and industrial loan category at June 30, 2021. At June 30, 2021, all taxi medallion loans totaling $87.2 million were on non-accrual status and had related reserves of $58.6 million, or 67.2 percent of such loans, within the allowance for loan losses.

Accruing Past Due Loans. Total accruing past due loans (i.e., loans past due 30 days or more and still accruing interest) increased $27.5 million to $80.2 million, or 0.25 percent of total loans, at June 30, 2021 as compared to $52.8 million, or 0.16 percent of total loans, at March 31, 2021 driven by a $36.8 million increase in the commercial real estate loan delinquencies, partially offset by a $7.5 million improvement in the early stage delinquencies in the residential mortgage loan category. Commercial real estate loans past due 30 to 59 days increased $28.9 million to $40.5 million at June 30, 2021 as compared to March 31, 2021 largely due to three loans totaling $18.7 million related to borrowers negatively impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. Commercial real estate loans past due 60 to 89 days totaled $11.5 million at June 30, 2021 and largely reflected one $11.2 million loan also negatively impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Forbearance. In response to the COVID-19 pandemic and its economic impact to certain customers, Valley implemented short-term loan modifications such as payment deferrals, fee waivers, extensions of repayment terms, or delays in payment, when requested by customers, all of which were insignificant. As of June 30, 2021, Valley had approximately $142 million of outstanding loans remaining in their payment deferral period under short-term modifications, as compared to $284 million of loans in deferral at March 31, 2021.

Allowance for Credit Losses for Loans and Unfunded Commitments. The following table summarizes the allocation of the allowance for credit losses to loan categories and the allocation as a percentage of each loan category at June 30, 2021, March 31, 2021 and June 30, 2020:

Allowance for credit losses for loans as a % loans  1.09%   1.08%   0.99%

Our loan portfolio, totaling $32.5 billion at June 30, 2021, had net loan charge-offs totaling $9.4 million for the second quarter 2021 as compared to $6.1 million and $14.8 million for the first quarter 2021 and second quarter 2020, respectively. Net loan charge-offs increased during the second quarter 2021 mainly due to an $8.0 million full charge-off of a commercial and industrial loan to an insurance carrier in bankruptcy. Gross charge-offs of taxi medallion loans totaled $1.4 million for the second quarter 2021 as compared to $3.3 million and $2.9 million for the first quarter 2021 and second quarter 2020, respectively. Gross charge-offs of taxi medallion loans for the second quarter 2021 were mainly related to partial charge-offs of Chicago taxi medallion loans sold from the loans held for investment portfolio during the period.

The allowance for credit losses for loans, comprised of our allowance for loan losses and unfunded credit commitments, as a percentage of total loans was 1.09 percent, 1.08 percent and 0.99 percent at June 30, 2021, March 31, 2021 and June 30, 2020, respectively. During the second quarter 2021, we recorded a provision for credit losses for loans of $8.8 million as compared to a provision of $9.0 million and $41.1 million for the first quarter 2021 and second quarter 2020, respectively.

At June 30, 2021, the allowance allocations for credit losses as a percentage of total loans increased in most loan categories as compared to March 31, 2021. The allocated reserves as a percentage of commercial real estate loans increased 5 basis points mainly due to higher quantitative reserves for non-owner occupied loans, as well as loan growth within this category during the second quarter 2021. The allocated reserves as a percentage of commercial and industrial loans increased by 3 basis points mainly due to repayments (loan forgiveness) of PPP loans guaranteed by the SBA with no related allowance at June 30, 2021. The allowance for credit losses as a percentage of total non-PPP loans was 1.14 percent, 1.17 percent and 1.06 percent for the second quarter 2021, first quarter 2021 and second quarter 2020, respectively.

Capital Adequacy

Valley's regulatory capital ratios continue to reflect its well capitalized position. Valley's total risk-based capital, common equity Tier 1 capital, Tier 1 capital and Tier 1 leverage capital ratios were 13.36 percent, 10.04 percent, 10.73 percent and 8.49 percent, respectively, at June 30, 2021.

NOTES TO SELECTED FINANCIAL DATA

(1)Net interest income and net interest margin are presented on a tax equivalent basis using a 21 percent federal tax rate. Valley believes that this presentation provides comparability of net interest income and net interest margin arising from both taxable and tax-exempt sources and is consistent with industry practice and SEC rules.
(2)This press release contains certain supplemental financial information, described in the Notes below, which has been determined by methods other than U.S. Generally Accepted Accounting Principles ("GAAP") that management uses in its analysis of Valley's performance. Management believes these non-GAAP financial measures provide information useful to investors in understanding Valley's financial results. Specifically, Valley provides measures based on what it believes are its core operating earnings on a consistent basis and excludes material non-core operating items which affect the GAAP reporting of results of operations. Management utilizes these measures for internal planning and forecasting purposes. Management believes that Valley's presentation and discussion, together with the accompanying reconciliations, provides a complete understanding of factors and trends affecting Valley's business and allows investors to view performance in a manner similar to management. These non-GAAP measures should not be considered a substitute for GAAP basis measures and results and Valley strongly encourages investors to review its consolidated financial statements in their entirety and not to rely on any single financial measure. Because non-GAAP financial measures are not standardized, it may not be possible to compare these financial measures with other companies' non-GAAP financial measures having the same or similar names.
