This increase of $9.2 million for 2021, compared to 2020, was primarily due to a recapture for credit losses of $10.8 million for 2021, compared to a provision for credit losses of $18.9 million for 2020. In addition, noninterest expense increased $15.6 million, income tax expense increased $3.9 million, net interest income decreased $2.4 million and noninterest income increased $1.5 million in 2021, compared to 2020.

The decrease of $15.0 million in net income for the fourth quarter of 2021, compared to the third quarter of 2021, was primarily due to a $10.5 million increase in noninterest expense and a $3.7 million increase in the provision for credit losses. The decrease of $10.8 million in net income for the fourth quarter of 2021, compared to the fourth quarter of 2020, was primarily due to a $11.2 million increase in noninterest expense, a $1.7 million decrease in net interest income, partially offset by a $1.1 million decrease in the provision for credit losses and a $578,000 increase in noninterest income.

Net Interest Income

Net interest income was $30.8 million for the fourth quarter of 2021, compared to $31.2 million for the third quarter of 2021 and $32.5 million for the fourth quarter of 2020. Net interest income decreased $439,000 during the fourth quarter of 2021, compared to the third quarter of 2021, primarily due to lower rates on loans, which was partially offset by higher average securities. Net fees recognized on Paycheck Protection Program, or PPP, loans during the fourth quarter of 2021 were $1.5 million and $2.3 million in the third quarter of 2021.

Net interest income decreased $1.7 million during the fourth quarter of 2021, compared to the fourth quarter of 2020, primarily due to lower average loans, which was partially offset by higher average securities and interest-bearing deposits at other financial institutions and lower rates on interest-bearing deposits. Net fees recognized on PPP loans during the fourth quarter of 2021 were $1.5 million and $2.1 million in the fourth quarter of 2020.

Net interest income decreased $2.4 million during 2021, compared to 2020, primarily due to lower average loans, lower rates on interest-earning assets and higher average interest-bearing deposits, which was partially offset by higher average securities and interest-bearing deposits at other financial institutions and lower rates on interest-bearing deposits. Net fees recognized on PPP loans during 2021 were $8.4 million and $4.0 million during 2020.

The yield on interest-earning assets was 3.16% for the fourth quarter of 2021, compared to 3.33% for the third quarter of 2021 and 3.79% for the fourth quarter of 2020. The cost of interest-bearing liabilities was 0.28% for the fourth quarter of 2021, 0.30% for the third quarter of 2021 and 0.39% for the fourth quarter of 2020.

Provision (Recapture) for Credit Losses

The provision for credit losses was a recapture of credit losses of $1.2 million for the fourth quarter of 2021, compared to a recapture of $4.9 million for the third quarter of 2021 and a recapture of $135,000 for the fourth quarter of 2020.

The recapture of credit losses of $1.2 million for the fourth quarter of 2021 primarily resulted from qualitative factor adjustments associated with continued improvements in the local economy.

The recapture of credit losses of $135,000 for the fourth quarter of 2020 was comprised of a recapture of credit losses of $364,000 related to unfunded commitments as a result of a decrease in availability and a provision for credit losses of $229,000 for loans.

The recapture of credit losses of $10.8 million in 2021 primarily resulted from the adjustment of certain qualitative factors used to determine the ACL due to the continued improvements in the national and local economies and forecast assumptions. The provision for credit losses of $18.9 million in 2020 primarily resulted from the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, sustained instability of the oil and gas industry, an increase in adversely graded loans and an increase in charge-offs of $3.1 million from 2019 to 2020.

The ACL for loans was $31.3 million, or 1.09%, to loans excluding loans held for sale at December 31, 2021, $32.2 million, or 1.23%, at September 30, 2021 and $40.6 million, or 1.39%, at December 31, 2020. The decrease in the ACL for loans during 2021, as compared to 2020, was primarily the result of the adjustment of certain qualitative factors utilized in the Company’s ACL estimate due to the continued improvements in the national and local economies and forecast assumptions.

Noninterest Income

Noninterest income was $4.1 million for the fourth quarter of 2021, $5.6 million for the third quarter of 2021 and $3.5 million for the fourth quarter of 2020. The decrease of $1.5 million for the fourth quarter of 2021, compared to the third quarter of 2021, was primarily due to gains of $1.9 million recorded during the third quarter of 2021 related to bank-owned life insurance policies.

Noninterest income was $16.3 million for 2021 and $14.8 million for 2020. The increase of $1.5 million for 2021, compared to 2020, was primarily due to gains of $1.9 million related to bank-owned life insurance policies recorded during 2021, compared to gains of $769,000 related to bank-owned life insurance policies recorded during 2020. Net gains on sales of assets increased $1.1 million from $755,000 for 2020 to $1.8 million for 2021.

Noninterest Expense

Noninterest expense was $34.8 million for the fourth quarter of 2021, compared to $24.4 million for the third quarter of 2021 and $23.7 million for the fourth quarter of 2020. The increase in noninterest expense of $10.5 million between the third and fourth quarters of 2021 and the increase of $11.2 million between the fourth quarters of 2020 and 2021 were primarily due to the payment of $8.0 million to resolve BSA/AML compliance matters and $1.3 million of costs related to the pending merger with Allegiance. The Company incurred $400,000 of merger related costs in the third quarter of 2021.

The increase in noninterest expense of $15.6 million for 2021, compared to 2020, was primarily due to the payment of $8.0 million to resolve BSA/AML compliance matters, $1.7 million of costs related to the pending merger with Allegiance included in 2021 and a $5.1 million increase in salaries and employee benefits. The increase in salaries and employee benefits during 2021, compared to 2020, resulted from increased claims under the Company’s self-funded health plan, increased bonus expense, increased stock-based compensation expense and increased salary expense.

On December 16, 2021, the Bank, entered into a consent order with the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency, or OCC, regarding BSA/AML compliance matters, or the OCC Consent Order. Under the OCC Consent Order, the Bank paid a civil money penalty of $1.0 million.

On December 15, 2021, the Bank entered into a consent order with the Financial Crimes Enforcement Network (“FinCEN”) regarding BSA compliance matters, or the FinCEN Consent Order. Under the terms of the FinCEN Consent Order, the Bank paid a civil money penalty of $8.0 million; provided, however, that FinCEN agreed to credit the Bank the $1.0 million civil money penalty imposed by the OCC described above. As a result, the Bank paid an aggregate sum of $8.0 million under the OCC Consent Order and the FinCEN Consent Order. The OCC Consent Order and FinCEN Consent Order each settle the civil money proceedings against the Bank initiated by the OCC and FinCEN.

Income Taxes

Income tax expense was $1.8 million for the fourth quarter of 2021, $2.9 million for the third quarter of 2021 and $2.3 million for the fourth quarter of 2020. The effective tax rates were 142.41% for the fourth quarter of 2021, 16.81% for the third quarter of 2021 and 18.24% for the fourth quarter of 2020.

Income tax expense was $9.9 million for 2021 and $6.0 million for 2020. The effective tax rates were 21.79% for 2021 and 18.63% for 2020.

The differences between the federal statutory rate of 21% and the effective tax rates were largely attributable to permanent differences primarily related to tax exempt interest income and bank-owned life insurance earnings. The tax rate for the year ended December 31, 2021 and the fourth quarter of 2021 were also impacted by the resolution of the BSA/AML compliance matters as the payments are not tax deductible.

Balance Sheet Highlights

Loans

Loans excluding loans held for sale were $2.9 billion at December 31, 2021, $2.6 billion at September 30, 2021 and $2.9 billion at December 31, 2020. The increase in loans excluding loans held for sale from September 30, 2021 to December 31, 2021 of $259.1 million was primarily due to increased loan originations during the fourth quarter of 2021 and the purchase of loans from a third party totaling $81.4 million. The decrease of $56.6 million from December 31, 2020 to December 31, 2021 was primarily due to loan paydowns outpacing loan originations.

The decrease in loans was also impacted by the decrease in the Company’s PPP loans which were $52.8 million, net of deferred fees and unearned discounts, at December 31, 2021, $100.8 million at September 30, 2021 and $271.2 million at December 31, 2020.

Cash and Cash Equivalents

Deposits and Borrowings

Total deposits were $3.8 billion at December 31, 2021, $3.5 billion at September 30, 2021 and $3.3 billion at December 31, 2020. The increase in deposits of $299.6 million between September 30, 2021 and December 31, 2021 was due to net deposit inflows of $142.8 million in interest-bearing accounts and net deposit inflows of $156.8 million in noninterest-bearing accounts. The increase in deposits of $529.5 million between December 31, 2020 and December 31, 2021 was due to net deposit inflows of $220.9 million and $308.6 million in interest-bearing accounts and noninterest-bearing accounts, respectively.

Non-GAAP to GAAP Reconciliation
(In thousands, except per share data and percentages)

Our accounting and reporting policies conform to GAAP and the prevailing practices in the banking industry. However, we also evaluate our performance based on certain additional non-GAAP financial measures. We classify a financial measure as being a non-GAAP financial measure if that financial measure excludes or includes amounts, or is subject to adjustments that have the effect of excluding or including amounts, that are not included or excluded in the most directly comparable measure calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP in our statements of income, balance sheets or statements of cash flows. Non-GAAP financial measures do not include operating, other statistical measures or ratios calculated using exclusively financial measures calculated in accordance with GAAP. Non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for the most directly comparable or other financial measures calculated in accordance with GAAP. Moreover, the way we calculate the non-GAAP financial measures may differ from that of other companies reporting measures with similar names.

This earnings release contains certain non-GAAP financial measures including “tangible book value,” “tangible book value per common share,” and “tangible equity to tangible assets,” which are supplemental measures that are not required by, or are not presented in accordance with, GAAP.

We calculate tangible equity as total shareholders’ equity, less goodwill and other intangible assets, net of accumulated amortization, and tangible book value per share as tangible equity divided by shares of common stock outstanding at the end of the relevant period. The most directly comparable GAAP financial measure for tangible book value per share is book value per share.

We calculate tangible assets as total assets less goodwill and other intangible assets, net of accumulated amortization. The most directly comparable GAAP financial measure for tangible equity to tangible assets is total shareholders’ equity to total assets.

We believe that tangible book value per share and tangible equity to tangible assets are measures that are important to many investors in the marketplace who are interested in book value per share and total shareholders’ equity to total assets, exclusive of change in intangible assets.

The following table reconciles, as of the dates set forth below, total shareholders’ equity to tangible equity, total assets to tangible assets and presents book value per share, tangible book value per share, tangible equity to tangible assets and total shareholders’ equity to total assets:
