Eagle Bancorp Montana Earns $2.7 Million, or $0.39 per Diluted Share, in Second Quarter of 2021; Increases Quarterly Cash Dividend by 28% to $0.125 per Share

Helena, Montana, UNITED STATES


HELENA, Mont., July 27, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Eagle Bancorp Montana, Inc. (NASDAQ: EBMT), (the “Company,” “Eagle”), the holding company of Opportunity Bank of Montana, today reported net income in the second quarter of 2021 of $2.7 million, or $0.39 per diluted share, compared to $5.7 million, or $0.84 per diluted share, in the second quarter a year ago, and $5.3 million, or $0.78 per diluted share, in the preceding quarter. Operating results for the second quarter of 2021 reflect lower contributions from gains on sales of mortgage loans compared to the preceding quarter. As expected, the robust mortgage activity from the prior year has begun to equalize.

Eagle’s board of directors increased its quarterly cash dividend by 28% to $0.125 per share on July 22, 2021. The dividend will be payable September 3, 2021 to shareholders of record August 13, 2021. The current annualized dividend yield is 2.18% based on recent market prices.

“We extended our momentum from the first quarter generating solid second quarter earnings, supported by net interest income growth and higher loan production both year-over-year and from the linked quarter,” said Peter J. Johnson, President and CEO. “Deposit balances hit record levels again this quarter, with second round SBA Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) loans and new client relationships contributing to strong quarterly deposit growth of $52.2 million. We continue to monitor our loan portfolio and asset quality metrics very closely, and believe that our reserve levels are sufficient to cover any potential loan losses stemming from the pandemic. As the vaccine rollout continues and COVID-19 restrictions lift in Montana, we remain well positioned for growth during the second half of the year.”

Second Quarter 2021 Highlights (at or for the three-month period ended June 30, 2021, except where noted)

COVID-19 Preparations as of June 30, 2021:

  • Industry Exposure: Eagle’s exposure, as a percentage of total loans, to some of the industries with business revenues dramatically impacted by the pandemic includes hotels and lodging (5.69%), health care and social assistance (3.77%), bars and restaurants (2.68%), casinos (0.95%), and nursing homes (0.47%).
  • Loan Accommodations: The Bank has offered multiple accommodation options to its clients, including 90-day deferrals, interest only payments, and forbearances. As of June 30, 2021, remaining loan modifications for 28 nonresidential borrowers represented $17.5 million in loans or 2.00% of total loans, compared to 41 borrowers, representing $27.8 million or 3.36% of total loans, three months earlier. Approximately 86.08% of loans originally modified, or 287 borrowers, are now performing according to adapted loan agreements. The Montana Board of Investments (“MBOI”) offered 12-months of interest payment assistance to qualified borrowers. The Bank qualified 32 borrowers for the MBOI program representing $27.3 million in loans, of which $17.4 million is included in modification totals as of June 30, 2021. There are 21 forbearances remaining for residential mortgage loans, of which 19 are sold and serviced as of June 30, 2021. Utilization of credit lines were 80.2% at the end of the second quarter, compared to 81.6% at the end of the previous quarter, which aligns with historical usage rates.
  • Small Business Administration (SBA) Paycheck Protection Program (PPP): Eagle began taking loan applications from its small business clients immediately after the program was implemented in April 2020, and as of the close of the program, Eagle had helped 764 of its customers receive $45.7 million in SBA PPP loans. Eagle has processed applications for PPP loan forgiveness for customers, with 682 loans, representing over $39.8 million now paid in full. The remaining 82 PPP loans represent $5.9 million.

    On December 27, 2020, the Consolidated Appropriations Act (“CAA”) was signed into law, providing new COVID-19 stimulus relief, and it included $284 billion allocated for another round of PPP lending. The program offered new PPP loans for companies that did not receive a PPP loan in 2020, and also “second draw” loans targeted at hard-hit businesses that had already spent their initial PPP proceeds. As of June 30, 2021, Eagle had supported 646 borrowers receive $19.5 million in second round PPP funding, with 142 loans, representing $2.8 million now paid in full.
  • Loan Loss Provision: Management made the decision that due to the strength of the local economy, in conjunction with loan activity, no loan loss provision was necessary in the second quarter of 2021 when considering the COVID-19 pandemic.
  • Deposit Accommodations: The Bank halted deposit fees associated with early withdrawal requests to assist depositors with funding needs.
  • Liquidity Changes: Through the quarter ended June 30, 2021, the liquidity level has steadily increased, as a result of PPP loan payoffs and deposit growth.

Recent Events

During the second quarter 2021, the Company completed its modified “Dutch auction” tender offer (the “Tender Offer”) to purchase for cash up to $6,000,000 of shares of its common stock at a price per share not less than $24.00 and not greater than $26.25.

Because the Tender Offer was oversubscribed, shares were accepted from tendering stockholders on a pro rata basis so that the Company had accepted for purchase 250,000 shares of its common stock at a price of $24.00 per share.

The aggregate purchase price for the shares purchased in the Tender Offer was approximately $6,000,000, excluding fees and expenses relating to the Tender Offer. These shares represented approximately 3.7% of the shares outstanding.

Acquisitions

On January 1, 2020, Eagle completed its acquisition of Western Holding Company of Wolf Point, and its wholly owned subsidiary, Western Bank of Wolf Point, in a transaction valued at approximately $15.0 million. In the transaction, Eagle acquired one retail bank branch and approximately $104 million in assets, $87 million in deposits and $43 million in gross loans.

Balance Sheet Results

Eagle’s total assets increased 8.9% to $1.36 billion at June 30, 2021, compared to $1.25 billion a year ago, and increased 3.7% from $1.31 billion three months earlier.

Strong CRE and commercial construction activity more than offset PPP loan forgiveness, causing the loan portfolio to grow approximately 3.9% compared to a year ago and grow approximately 5.4% from the previous quarter.

Eagle originated $302.4 million in new residential mortgages during the quarter and sold $292.1 million in residential mortgages, with an average gross margin on sale of mortgage loans of approximately 3.59%. This production compares to residential mortgage originations of $271.4 million in the preceding quarter with sales of $260.5 million.

Commercial real estate loans increased 14.9% to $368.3 million at June 30, 2021, compared to $320.6 million a year earlier. Agricultural and farmland loans increased 2.8% to $120.7 million at June 30, 2021, compared to $117.4 million a year earlier. Commercial loans decreased 11.7% to $107.9 million, compared to $122.2 million a year ago, reflecting SBA PPP loan forgiveness during the current quarter. Residential mortgage loans decreased 9.4% to $101.4 million, compared to $112.0 million a year earlier. Commercial construction and development loans increased 18.9% to $63.5 million, home equity loans decreased 5.1% to $55.7 million, residential construction loans increased 3.4% to $40.2 million, and consumer loans decreased 6.8% to $18.9 million, compared to a year ago.  

Total deposits increased 19.9% to $1.15 billion at June 30, 2021, compared to $955.4 million at June 30, 2020, and increased 4.8% compared to $1.09 billion at March 31, 2021. Federal programs such as the PPP, stimulus checks and increased weekly unemployment benefits have boosted deposit balances. Noninterest-bearing checking accounts represent 30.5%, interest-bearing checking accounts represent 16.9%, savings accounts represent 17.7%, money market accounts comprise 21.2% and time certificates of deposit make up 13.7% of the total deposit portfolio, at June 30, 2021.

Shareholders’ equity increased 7.9% to $152.7 million at June 30, 2021, compared to $141.5 million a year earlier and decreased 2.0% compared to $155.8 million three months earlier. Tangible book value was $19.17 per share, at June 30, 2021, compared to $17.32 per share a year earlier and $19.60 per share three months earlier.  

Operating Results

“The continued low interest rate environment, coupled with lower yields on interest earning assets and increased short-term liquidity, continued to put pressure on our NIM during the second quarter. We are encouraged by our strong loan growth in the second quarter and expect to see continued growth in dollar net interest income,” said Johnson. Eagle’s NIM was 3.81% in the second quarter of 2021, compared to 3.97% in the preceding quarter, and 3.85% in the second quarter a year ago. The interest accretion on purchased loans totaled $125,000 and resulted in a four basis-point increase in the NIM during the second quarter, compared to $189,000 and a seven basis-point increase in the NIM during the preceding quarter. The investment securities portfolio increased to $234.0 million at June 30, 2021, compared to $180.3 million at March 31, 2021, and $174.5 million at June 30, 2020. Average yields on earning assets for the second quarter decreased to 4.08% from 4.48% a year ago. For the first six months of 2021, the NIM was 3.89%, compared to 3.95% for the first six months of 2020.

Eagle’s second quarter revenues were $22.6 million, compared to $24.5 million in the preceding quarter and $24.1 million in the second quarter a year ago. The quarterly decrease was primarily the result of lower gain on sale of mortgages.   In the first six months of 2021, revenues increased 9.9% to $47.2 million, compared to $42.9 million in the first six months of 2020.

Net interest income, before the loan loss provision, increased 1.7% to $11.3 million in the second quarter, compared to $11.1 million in the first quarter of 2021, and increased 8.7% compared to $10.4 million in the second quarter of 2020. Year-to-date, net interest income increased 7.5% to $22.5 million, compared to $20.9 million in the same period one year earlier.

Total noninterest income decreased to $11.3 million in the second quarter of 2021, compared to $13.4 million in the preceding quarter, and $13.7 million in the second quarter a year ago. Net mortgage banking totaled $9.9 million in the second quarter of 2021, compared to $11.8 million in the preceding quarter and $11.3 million in the second quarter a year ago. In the first six months of 2021, noninterest income increased 12.3% to $24.7 million, compared to $22.0 million in the first six months of 2020. Net mortgage banking increased 18.6% to $21.7 million in the first six months of 2021, compared to $18.3 million in the first six months of 2020.

Eagle’s second quarter noninterest expenses were $19.0 million, compared to $17.2 million in the preceding quarter and $15.1 million in the second quarter a year ago. In the first six months of 2021, noninterest expense increased to $36.3 million, compared to $28.0 million in the first six months of 2020. The increase for the second quarter and year-to-date is largely attributable to an increase in salary, commissions and employee benefits and processing expenses for PPP loans.

For the second quarter of 2021, the income tax provision totaled $893,000, for an effective tax rate of 25.0%, compared to $1.8 million in the preceding quarter and $2.0 million in the second quarter of 2020.

Credit Quality

The loan loss provision was $22,000 in the second quarter of 2021, compared to $299,000 in the preceding quarter and $1.2 million in the second quarter a year ago. The allowance for loan losses represented 135.6% of nonperforming loans at June 30, 2021, compared to 146.7% three months earlier and 124.6% a year earlier. Local economies continue to rebound and our loan quality has remained strong despite the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. Nonperforming loans were $8.8 million at June 30, 2021, compared to $8.1 million at March 31, 2021, and $8.4 million a year earlier.

Eagle had $6,000 in other real estate owned (“OREO”) and other repossessed assets on its books at June 30, 2021. This compares to no OREO at March 31, 2021, and $57,000 in OREO at June 30, 2020.

Net loan charge-offs totaled $22,000 in the second quarter of 2021, compared to net loan recoveries of $1,000 in the preceding quarter and net loan recoveries of $23,000 in the second quarter a year ago. The allowance for loan losses was $11.9 million, or 1.36% of total loans, at June 30, 2021, compared to $11.9 million, or 1.43% of total loans, at March 31, 2021, and $10.5 million, or 1.25% of total loans, a year ago.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

In addition to results presented in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles utilized in the United States, or GAAP, the Financial Ratios and Other Data contains non-GAAP financial measures. Non-GAAP disclosures include: 1) core efficiency ratio, 2) tangible book value per share, 3) tangible common equity to tangible assets, 4) earnings per diluted share, excluding acquisition costs and 5) return on average assets, excluding acquisition costs. The Company uses these non-GAAP financial measures to provide meaningful supplemental information regarding the Company’s operational performance and to enhance investors’ overall understanding of such financial performance. In particular, the use of tangible book value per share and tangible common equity to tangible assets is prevalent among banking regulators, investors and analysts.

The numerator for the core efficiency ratio is calculated by subtracting acquisition costs and intangible asset amortization from noninterest expense. Tangible assets and tangible common shareholders’ equity are calculated by excluding intangible assets from assets and shareholders’ equity, respectively. For these financial measures, our intangible assets consist of goodwill and core deposit intangible. Tangible book value per share is calculated by dividing tangible common shareholders’ equity by the number of common shares outstanding. We believe that this measure is consistent with the capital treatment by our bank regulatory agencies, which exclude intangible assets from the calculation of risk-based capital ratios and present this measure to facilitate the comparison of the quality and composition of our capital over time and in comparison, to our competitors.

Non-GAAP financial measures have inherent limitations, are not required to be uniformly applied, and are not audited. Further, the non-GAAP financial measure of tangible book value per share should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for book value per share or total shareholders’ equity determined in accordance with GAAP, and may not be comparable to a similarly titled measure reported by other companies. Reconciliation of the GAAP and non-GAAP financial measures are presented below.
