Stuart, Florida, UNITED STATES


Disciplined Loan Growth, Strong Deposit Growth, and Rising Net Interest Margin Highlight Q1 Results

Well-Positioned Balance Sheet with Strong Capital and Liquidity

STUART, Fla., April 28, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Seacoast Banking Corporation of Florida ("Seacoast" or the "Company") (NASDAQ: SBCF) today reported net income in the first quarter of 2022 of $20.6 million, or $0.33 per diluted share, which includes merger-related costs and a $5.1 million increase in the provision for credit losses associated with acquisition activity during the quarter. First quarter 2022 results represent a decrease of 43% compared to the fourth quarter of 2021, and a decrease of 39% compared to the first quarter of 2021. Adjusted net income1 for the first quarter of 2022 was $27.1 million, or $0.44 per diluted share, which includes the $5.1 million increase in the provision for credit losses associated with acquisition activity. First quarter 2022 adjusted results represent a decrease of 27% compared to the fourth quarter of 2021, and a decrease of 24% compared to the first quarter of 2021. At March 31, 2022, the ratio of tangible common equity to tangible assets was 9.89%, and tangible book value per share was $17.12. A decline in the value of the available for sale securities portfolio driven by rising interest rates during the period impacted the ratio of tangible common equity to tangible assets by 56 basis points and impacted tangible book value per share by $1.07.

For the first quarter of 2022, return on average tangible assets was 0.85%, return on average tangible shareholders' equity was 8.02%, and the efficiency ratio was 62.33%, compared to 1.51%, 14.29%, and 53.70%, respectively, in the prior quarter, and 1.70%, 15.62%, and 53.21%, respectively, in the prior year quarter. Adjusted return on average tangible assets1 in the first quarter of 2022 was 1.06%, adjusted return on average tangible shareholders' equity1 was 10.01%, and the adjusted efficiency ratio1 was 54.86%, compared to 1.49%, 14.11%, and 53.43%, respectively, in the prior quarter, and 1.75%, 16.01%, and 51.99%, respectively, in the prior year quarter.

Charles M. Shaffer, Seacoast's Chairman and CEO, said, “Seacoast’s investments in high-performing commercial banking talent across Florida drove disciplined organic loan growth this quarter and a material increase in the late-stage pipeline entering the second quarter. With broad expectations for rising rates, we believe that Seacoast’s asset-sensitive balance sheet and ample liquidity position us well for growth and the continued expansion of net interest margin, which increased nine basis points during the first quarter of 2022, and rose 14 basis points excluding the effects of PPP and accretion on acquired loans.”

“In the first quarter of 2022, we established a new market presence in Naples, Sarasota, and Jacksonville, and announced the proposed acquisition of Apollo Bancshares, Inc., bringing us five locations in Miami-Dade County. We believe that this expansion into some of the best banking markets in the United States will lead to strong franchise value creation in the coming years,” Shaffer added.

Acquisitions Update

On January 3, 2022, the Company completed the acquisitions of Sabal Palm Bancorp, Inc. (“Sabal Palm”) in Sarasota, and Business Bank of Florida Corp. (“BBFC”) in Brevard County, which added a combined $367.9 million in loans, $562.3 million in deposits, and a $5.1 million provision for credit losses at acquisition. Consolidation activities for BBFC, including system conversion, are substantially complete. System conversion for Sabal Palm is planned early in the second quarter of 2022.

On March 29, 2022, the Company announced its proposed acquisition of Apollo Bancshares, Inc. (“Apollo”). The transaction, which is expected to close early in the fourth quarter of 2022, will expand the Company’s presence in Miami-Dade County, which is part of the Miami-Fort Lauderdale-Pompano Beach MSA, Florida’s largest MSA and the 8th largest in the nation. Apollo operates five branches across Miami-Dade County with deposits of approximately $947 million and loans of $705 million as of March 31, 2022.

Financial Results

Income Statement

  • Net income was $20.6 million, or $0.33 per diluted share for the first quarter of 2022, which includes $6.7 million in merger-related costs associated with acquisition activity during the quarter, and a $5.1 million increase in the provision for credit losses associated with onboarding Sabal Palm and BBFC. This compares to net income of $36.3 million, or $0.62, for the prior quarter, and $33.7 million, or $0.60, for the prior year quarter. Adjusted net income1 for the first quarter of 2022 was $27.1 million, or $0.44 per diluted share, which includes the $5.1 million increase in the provision for credit losses associated with onboarding Sabal Palm and BBFC. This compares to $36.9 million, or $0.62, for the prior quarter, and $35.5 million, or $0.63, for the prior year quarter. In the first quarter of 2022, loan growth including bank acquisitions resulted in a provision for credit losses of $6.6 million, compared to a reversal of provision of $3.9 million in the fourth quarter of 2021 and a reversal of provision of $5.7 million in the first quarter of 2021. Excluded from adjusted net income are $6.7 million in merger-related expenses in the first quarter of 2022, compared to $0.5 million in the fourth quarter of 2021 and $0.6 million in the first quarter of 2021.
  • Net revenues were $91.9 million in the first quarter of 2022, an increase of $0.9 million, or 1%, compared to the prior quarter, and an increase of $7.6 million, or 9%, compared to the prior year quarter. Adjusted revenues1 were $92.3 million in the first quarter of 2022, an increase of $1.7 million, or 2%, compared to the prior quarter, and an increase of $8.0 million, or 9%, compared to the prior year quarter.
  • Net interest income totaled $76.5 million in the first quarter of 2022, an increase of $4.2 million, or 6%, from the fourth quarter of 2021, and an increase of $9.9 million, or 15%, compared to the first quarter of 2021. Increases relating to higher balances and higher yields on securities and loans were partially offset by declines in PPP interest and fees, while interest expense remained flat.
  • Net interest margin increased to 3.25% in the first quarter of 2022 compared to 3.16% in the fourth quarter of 2021, the result of higher yields on non-PPP loans and on securities. Excluding the effect of PPP and accretion on acquired loans, net interest margin increased 14 basis points to 3.05% in the first quarter of 2022 from 2.91% in the fourth quarter of 2021. Securities yields increased 11 basis points to 1.68%, reflecting the impact of the addition of higher yielding securities during the quarter. Non-PPP loan yields increased six basis points to 4.24%. The effect on net interest margin of accretion of purchase discounts on acquired loans in the first quarter of 2022 was an increase of 15 basis points, consistent with the prior quarter. The effect on net interest margin of interest and fees on PPP loans was an increase of five basis points in the first quarter of 2022 compared to an increase of ten basis points in the prior quarter. The cost of deposits remained at only six basis points for the first quarter of 2022. The margin benefited from the Company’s asset sensitivity, combined with disciplined growth across the balance sheet.
  • Noninterest income totaled $15.4 million in the first quarter of 2022, a decrease of $3.3 million, or 18%, compared to the prior quarter, and a decrease of $2.3 million, or 13%, compared to the prior year quarter. The decrease from the prior quarter primarily reflects a decrease of $3.4 million in income on SBIC investments, which is expected to vary amongst periods. In addition, the sale of a website domain name resulted in a gain of $0.8 million, benefiting results in the fourth quarter of 2021. Results for the first quarter of 2022 included the following:
    • Wealth management income was $2.7 million in the first quarter of 2022, an increase of $0.3 million compared to the prior quarter, reflecting continued success in winning new relationships.
    • Mortgage banking fees were $1.7 million, compared to $2.0 million in the prior quarter, the result of lower saleable production due to low housing inventory and slowing refinance demand.
    • Other income decreased by $3.4 million in the first quarter of 2022, reflecting lower income on SBIC investments and a gain in the fourth quarter of 2021 on the sale of a website domain name, partially offset by higher loan-swap related income.
    • The Company recognized $0.5 million in securities losses in the first quarter of 2022 compared to $0.4 million in the fourth quarter of 2021.
  • The provision for credit losses was $6.6 million in the first quarter of 2022, compared to a net benefit of $3.9 million in the prior quarter. The increase during the quarter included $5.1 million in provisioning for loans acquired in the Sabal Palm and BBFC transactions.
  • Noninterest expense was $58.9 million in the first quarter of 2022, an increase of $8.7 million, or 17%, compared to the prior quarter, and an increase of $12.8 million, or 28%, compared to the prior year quarter. The first quarter of 2022 included $6.7 million in merger-related expenses. Changes from the fourth quarter of 2021 included the following:
    • Salaries and wages increased $3.2 million to $28.2 million, which included $3.0 million in merger-related expenses associated with the BBFC and Sabal Palm acquisitions.
    • Employee benefits increased by $0.7 million to $5.5 million, reflecting higher seasonal payroll taxes and 401(k) contributions.
    • Outsourced data processing costs increased by $1.0 million to $6.2 million, which included $0.6 million in merger-related expenses and costs associated with the launch of the Company’s upgraded online and mobile banking platform, which was completed during the first quarter of 2022.
    • Legal and professional fees increased by $2.3 million to $4.8 million, which included $2.5 million in merger-related expenses, compared to $0.4 million in the fourth quarter of 2021.

  • The ratio of net adjusted noninterest expense1 to average tangible assets was 1.99% in the first quarter of 2022, compared to 1.96% in the prior quarter and 2.16% in the first quarter of 2021.
  • The efficiency ratio was 62.33% in the first quarter of 2022, compared to 53.70% in the prior quarter and 53.21% in the prior year quarter.

Tangible book value per share totaled $17.12 on March 31, 2022 compared to $17.84 on December 31, 2021 and $16.62 on March 31, 2021. A decline in the value of the available for sale securities portfolio driven by rising interest rates during the period impacted tangible book value per share by $1.07.
  • Debt securities totaled $2.5 billion on March 31, 2022, an increase of $170.7 million, or 7%, compared to December 31, 2021.

  • Loans totaled $6.5 billion on March 31, 2022, an increase of $526.2 million, or 9%, compared to December 31, 2021. Changes during the first quarter of 2022 include $367.9 million added through bank acquisitions, and the purchase of a $111.3 million residential loan pool.

Limited housing inventory and slowing refinance activity contributed to lower production.

Actual results may differ from those set forth in the forward-looking statements.

Forward-looking statements include statements with respect to the Company’s beliefs, plans, objectives, goals, expectations, anticipations, assumptions, estimates and intentions about future performance and involve known and unknown risks, uncertainties and other factors, which may be beyond the Company’s control, and which may cause the actual results, performance or achievements of Seacoast to be materially different from future results, performance or achievements expressed or implied by such forward-looking statements. You should not expect the Company to update any forward-looking statements.

All statements other than statements of historical fact could be forward-looking statements. You can identify these forward-looking statements through the use of words such as "may", "will", "anticipate", "assume", "should", "support", "indicate", "would", "believe", "contemplate", "expect", "estimate", "continue", "further", "plan", "point to", "project", "could", "intend", "target" or other similar words and expressions of the future. These forward-looking statements may not be realized due to a variety of factors, including, without limitation: the effects of future economic and market conditions, including seasonality; the adverse impact of COVID-19 (economic and otherwise) on the Company and its customers, counterparties, employees, and third-party service providers, and the adverse impacts to our business, financial position, results of operations and prospects; government or regulatory responses to the COVID-19 pandemic; governmental monetary and fiscal policies, including interest rate policies of the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve, as well as legislative, tax and regulatory changes, including those that impact the money supply and inflation; changes in accounting policies, rules and practices, including the impact of the adoption of the current expected credit losses (“CECL”) methodology; the risks of changes in interest rates on the level and composition of deposits, loan demand, liquidity and the values of loan collateral, securities, and interest rate sensitive assets and liabilities; interest rate risks, sensitivities and the shape of the yield curve; uncertainty related to the impact of LIBOR calculations on securities, loans and debt; changes in borrower credit risks and payment behaviors including as a result of the financial impact of COVID-19; changes in retail distribution strategies, customer preferences and behavior (including as a result of economic factors); changes in the availability and cost of credit and capital in the financial markets; changes in the prices, values and sales volumes of residential and commercial real estate; our ability to comply with any regulatory requirements; the effects of problems encountered by other financial institutions that adversely affect Seacoast or the banking industry; the Company’s concentration in commercial real estate loans and in real estate collateral in Florida; inaccuracies or other failures from the use of models, including the failure of assumptions and estimates, as well as differences in, and changes to, economic, market and credit conditions; the impact on the valuation of Seacoast’s investments due to market volatility or counterparty payment risk; statutory and regulatory dividend restrictions; increases in regulatory capital requirements for banking organizations generally; the risks of mergers, acquisitions and divestitures, including Seacoast’s ability to continue to identify acquisition targets, successfully acquire and integrate desirable financial institutions and realize expected revenues and revenue synergies; changes in technology or products that may be more difficult, costly, or less effective than anticipated; the Company’s ability to identify and address increased cybersecurity risks, including as a result of employees working remotely; inability of Seacoast’s risk management framework to manage risks associated with the Company’s business; dependence on key suppliers or vendors to obtain equipment or services for the business on acceptable terms, including the impact of supply chain disruptions; reduction in or the termination of Seacoast’s ability to use the online- or mobile-based platform that is critical to the Company’s business growth strategy; the effects of war or other conflicts, including the impacts related to or resulting from Russia’s military action in Ukraine, acts of terrorism, natural disasters, health emergencies, epidemics or pandemics, or other catastrophic events that may affect general economic conditions; unexpected outcomes of and the costs associated with, existing or new litigation involving the Company, including as a result of the Company’s participation in the Paycheck Protection Program (“PPP”); Seacoast’s ability to maintain adequate internal controls over financial reporting; potential claims, damages, penalties, fines and reputational damage resulting from pending or future litigation, regulatory proceedings and enforcement actions; the risks that deferred tax assets could be reduced if estimates of future taxable income from the Company’s operations and tax planning strategies are less than currently estimated and sales of capital stock could trigger a reduction in the amount of net operating loss carryforwards that the Company may be able to utilize for income tax purposes; the effects of competition from other commercial banks, thrifts, mortgage banking firms, consumer finance companies, credit unions, non-bank financial technology providers, securities brokerage firms, insurance companies, money market and other mutual funds and other financial institutions operating in the Company’s market areas and elsewhere, including institutions operating regionally, nationally and internationally, together with such competitors offering banking products and services by mail, telephone, computer and the Internet; the failure of assumptions underlying the establishment of reserves for possible credit losses.

The risks relating to the proposed Apollo Bancshares, Inc. merger include, without limitation, failure to obtain the approval of shareholders of Apollo Bancshares, Inc. and Apollo Bank in connection with the merger; the timing to consummate the proposed merger; the risk that a condition to the closing of the proposed merger may not be satisfied; the risk that a regulatory approval that may be required for the proposed merger is not obtained or is obtained subject to conditions that are not anticipated; the parties' ability to achieve the synergies and value creation contemplated by the proposed merger; the parties' ability to promptly and effectively integrate the businesses of Seacoast and Apollo Bancshares, Inc., including unexpected transaction costs, the costs of integrating operations, severance, professional fees and other expenses; the diversion of management time on issues related to the merger; the failure to consummate or any delay in consummating the merger for other reasons; changes in laws or regulations; the risks of customer and employee loss and business disruption, including, without limitation, as the result of difficulties in maintaining relationships with employees; increased competitive pressures and solicitations of customers and employees by competitors; and the difficulties and risks inherent with entering new markets.

Explanation of Certain Unaudited Non-GAAP Financial Measures

This presentation contains financial information determined by methods other than Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (“GAAP”). Management uses these non- GAAP financial measures in its analysis of the Company’s performance and believes these presentations provide useful supplemental information, and a clearer understanding of the Company’s performance. The Company believes the non-GAAP measures enhance investors’ understanding of the Company’s business and performance and if not provided would be requested by the investor community. These measures are also useful in understanding performance trends and facilitate comparisons with the performance of other financial institutions. The limitations associated with operating measures are the risk that persons might disagree as to the appropriateness of items comprising these measures and that different companies might define or calculate these measures differently. The Company provides reconciliations between GAAP and these non-GAAP measures. These disclosures should not be considered an alternative to GAAP.
