July 29, 2020

LUBBOCK, Texas, July 29, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- South Plains Financial, Inc. (NASDAQ:SPFI) (“South Plains” or the “Company”), the parent company of City Bank (“City Bank” or the “Bank”), today reported its financial results for the quarter ended June 30, 2020.

Second Quarter 2020 Highlights

  • Net income for the second quarter of 2020 was $5.6 million, compared to $7.1 million for the first quarter of 2020 and $6.1 million for the second quarter of 2019.
  • Diluted earnings per share for the second quarter of 2020 was $0.31, compared to $0.38 for the first quarter of 2020 and $0.37 for the second quarter of 2019.
  • Pre-tax, pre-provision income (non-GAAP) for the second quarter of 2020 was $20.1 million, compared to $15.1 million for the first quarter of 2020 and $8.6 million for the second quarter of 2019.
  • Average cost of deposits for the second quarter of 2020 decreased to 39 basis points, compared to 65 basis points for the first quarter of 2020 and 108 basis points for the second quarter of 2019.
  • The provision for loan losses for the second quarter of 2020 was $13.1 million, compared to $6.2 million for the first quarter of 2020 and $875,000 for the second quarter of 2019. The increase in the provision during the second quarter of 2020 was primarily due to management’s expectations regarding the continued economic downturn related to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the volatility in energy prices and reduced oil production in the State of Texas.
  • Nonperforming assets to total assets were 0.33% at June 30, 2020, compared to 0.28% as of March 31, 2020 and 0.37% at June 30, 2019.
  • The adjusted (non-GAAP) efficiency ratio for the second quarter of 2020 was 63.28%, compared to 72.52% for the first quarter of 2020 and 77.46% for the second quarter of 2019.
  • Return on average assets for the second quarter of 2020 was 0.64% annualized, compared to 0.89% annualized for the first quarter of 2020 and 0.89% annualized for the second quarter of 2019.
  • Book value per share was $18.64 as of June 30, 2020, compared to $18.10 per share as of March 31, 2020 and $16.19 per share as of June 30, 2019.

Curtis Griffith, South Plains’ Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, commented, “I am very proud of our employees for their hard work and dedication to our customers and communities during this unprecedented time. They have kept the Bank’s operations running smoothly and maintained a high level of service and support for our customers. As the number of COVID-19 cases started to spike in Texas in June, we made the decision to close our branch lobbies once again to appointment-only service while keeping our drive-through windows in operation. Overall, we continue to operate very effectively through our drive-through windows and are successfully transitioning our customers to our digital banking platforms. Importantly, we have invested in the technology and developed the digital platforms and systems which have allowed us to effectively service our customers remotely throughout the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. We will also remain disciplined on expenses and are adapting our branch network to more effectively meet customer traffic trends, which remain robust. As part of this, we closed our Springlake, Texas branch at the end of June and will continue to focus on doing more with less.” 

Mr. Griffith continued, “While the economic backdrop was a headwind to our second quarter results, I am very pleased with our performance and the earnings growth that is building within the Bank. For the second quarter of 2020, we delivered pre-tax, pre-provision income of $20.1 million, which compares favorably to the $15.1 million achieved in the first quarter of 2020 and the $8.6 million in the year ago second quarter. We recorded a $13.1 million provision expense during the second quarter of 2020, driven largely by qualitative factors based upon what we are seeing in our local economies and the potential extended impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. We have taken a very proactive approach to this crisis with all of our borrowers, especially in our at-risk categories of the loan portfolio, including our borrowers in the hospitality and energy segments. We are encouraged with the flattening of our loan modifications at 19.9% of the total loan portfolio at June 30, 2020. We believe our aggressive provision this quarter reflects a conservative outlook at the end of the second quarter and we believe that we have the capital to absorb the losses in our loan portfolio that could result from an adverse stress environment. Looking forward, we feel well positioned to take advantage of opportunities that could be created in these difficult times.”

COVID-19 Update

The Company’s Oversight Committee for Business Continuity and Incident Response, which has monitored the spread of the coronavirus since January, continues to monitor the impact of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, as well as employee and customer communications. The Company’s Pandemic Task Force continues to implement South Plains’ Business Continuity Plan, focusing on the safety of the Company’s employees and customers while maintaining the operational and financial integrity of the Bank. Non-essential employees were transitioned to a work-from-home environment, strict protocols for employees deemed essential were adopted to ensure adequate social distancing and all Bank facilities are receiving incremental cleaning and sanitization. The Company restricted access to its bank lobbies and customers are currently served through appointments only, as well as through the Bank’s drive-through windows and recently upgraded digital platforms.

The Bank also continues to implement a rigorous enterprise risk management (“ERM”) system that delivers a systematic approach to risk measurement and enhances the effectiveness of risk management across the Bank. The Bank’s ERM system has allowed management to consistently and aggressively review the Bank’s loan portfolio for signs of potential issues during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and the Bank continues to closely monitoring its loans to borrowers in the retail, hospitality and energy sectors.

While the duration of the COVID-19 pandemic and the scope of its impact on the economy is uncertain, the Bank continues to be proactive with its borrowers in those sectors most affected by the COVID-19 pandemic and offering loan modifications to borrowers who are or may be unable to meet their contractual payment obligations because of the effects of COVID-19. As previously disclosed, the Bank has assigned its Chairman, Chief Executive Officer, Chief Credit Officer and Chief Lending Officer to partner with the Bank’s lenders on those borrowers most impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic to ensure the Company remains proactive in addressing those credits with the appropriate oversight and modifications when warranted. As part of the Bank’s efforts to support its customers and protect the Bank, the Bank has offered varying forms of loan modifications ranging from 90-day payment deferrals to 6- to 12-month interest only terms to provide borrowers relief. As of June 30, 2020, total loan modifications attributed to COVID-19 were approximately $464 million, or 19.9%, of the Company’s loan portfolio. The modification breakdown is: 64% of modified loans are interest only with periods of up to 6 months, 15% of modified loans are 90 day payment deferrals on commercial customers, 10% of modified loans are interest only periods longer than 6 months, primarily in the Bank’s hotel portfolio, and 11% of modified loans are payment deferrals of one to four months on consumer loans.

The Bank has assisted its customers in accessing the Paycheck Protection Program (the “PPP”) administered by the Small Business Administration (the “SBA”) and created under the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (the “CARES Act”). During the second quarter of 2020, the Bank originated approximately 2,050 PPP loans totaling $215 million. The Bank has utilized its lines of credit with the Federal Home Loan Bank of Dallas and/or the Federal Reserve Bank to supplement funding for origination of PPP loans as needed. Helping City Bank’s customers access PPP loans is just one way that the Bank has been helping its customers and communities during this challenging time. City Bank has also been a supporter of the South Plains and Permian Basin food banks and recently increased its financial support given the challenging economic environment for so many.

Finally, as previously announced on April 16, 2020, the Company temporarily suspended its stock repurchase program in response to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Suspending the stock repurchase program has allowed the Company to preserve capital and provide liquidity to meet the credit needs of the customers, small businesses and local communities served by the Company and City Bank. The Company believes that it remains strong and well-capitalized, and the Company may reinstate the stock repurchase program in the future.

Results of Operations, Quarter Ended June 30, 2020

Net Interest Income

Net interest income was $30.4 million for the second quarter of 2020, compared to $24.8 million for the second quarter of 2019 and $30.2 million for the first quarter of 2020.

Interest income was $34.0 million for the second quarter of 2020, compared to $32.5 million for the second quarter of 2019 and $35.7 million for the first quarter of 2020. Interest and fees on loans increased by $1.3 million from the second quarter of 2019 due to growth of $429.1 million in average loans, primarily from the Company’s acquisition of West Texas State Bank (“WTSB”) as well as the PPP loans that were originated in the second quarter of 2020, partially offset by a decrease of 64 basis points in non-PPP loan rates due to the decline in the interest rate environment experienced in the first quarter of 2020. The decrease from the first quarter of 2020 was principally the result of a decrease of 50 basis points in non-PPP loan rates, partially offset by an increase of $208.7 million in average loans outstanding during the second quarter of 2020. The increase in average loans was largely attributable to the new PPP loans originated in the second quarter of 2020 as well as normal seasonal funding of the Bank’s agricultural production loans. The PPP loans yielded 2.53% during the second quarter of 2020, which includes accretion of the related SBA lenders fees for processing PPP loans during the quarter. As of June 30, 2020, the Company has received and deferred $7.7 million in PPP related SBA fees and is accreting these fees into interest income over the life of the applicable loans. If a PPP loan is forgiven or paid off before maturity, the remaining unamortized fee is accreted to income at that time. During the second quarter of 2020, the Company recognized $641,000 million in PPP related SBA fees. The Company expects that the majority of PPP loans will begin to be forgiven over the next several quarters.

Interest expense was $3.6 million for the second quarter of 2020, compared to $7.7 million for the second quarter of 2019 and $5.5 million for the first quarter of 2020. The decrease from the second quarter of 2019 was primarily due to a decrease in the interest rate paid on interest-bearing liabilities of 94 basis points, partially offset by an increase of $281.7 million in average interest-bearing liabilities. The decrease from the first quarter of 2020 was primarily due to a decrease in the interest rate paid on interest-bearing liabilities of 42 basis points, partially offset by an increase of $127.9 million in average interest-bearing liabilities in the second quarter of 2020. The average cost of deposits was 39 basis points for the second quarter of 2020, representing a 69 basis point decrease from the second quarter of 2019 and a 26 basis point decrease from the first quarter of 2020. The increase in average interest-bearing liabilities in the second quarter of 2020 compared to the first quarter of 2020 was primarily due to increased deposits, from PPP loan funding and other government stimulus payments and programs as well as organic growth, and an additional $75.0 million in borrowings to augment liquidity in funding the PPP loans.  The increase compared to the second quarter of 2019 was largely due to the Company’s acquisition of WTSB as well as the other deposit growth noted above. Additionally, the decrease in the rate paid on interest-bearing liabilities was the result of the decline in the overall rate environment experienced in the first quarter of 2020.

The net interest margin was 3.79% for the second quarter of 2020, compared to 3.88% for the second quarter of 2019 and 4.13% for the first quarter of 2020. The origination of PPP loans accounted for an estimated 11 basis points of the decrease of net interest margin. An estimated additional 7 basis points of the decrease in net interest margin is attributable to a reduction in purchased loan income accretion.

Noninterest Income and Noninterest Expense

Noninterest income was $24.9 million for the second quarter of 2020, compared to $13.7 million for the second quarter of 2019 and $18.9 million for the first quarter of 2020. The increase in noninterest income for the second quarter of 2020 compared to the second quarter of 2019 was primarily the result of an increase of $11.3 million in mortgage banking activities revenue due to an increase of $225.8 million in mortgage loan originations. Additionally, there was a decrease in service charges on deposits of $540,000 in the second quarter of 2020 from reduced customer spending and activity during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. The increase from the first quarter of 2020 was primarily the result of an increase of $9.2 million in mortgage banking activities revenue as a result of an increase of $152.6 million in mortgage loan originations, partially offset by a $2.3 million gain on sale of securities recorded in the first quarter of 2020.  Additionally, there was a decrease in service charges on deposits of $544,000 in the second quarter of 2020.

Noninterest expense was $35.2 million for the second quarter of 2020, compared to $29.9 million for the second quarter of 2019 and $34.0 million for the first quarter of 2020. This increase in noninterest expense for the second quarter of 2020 compared to the second quarter of 2019 was primarily driven by a $2.8 million increase in personnel expense. This increase was predominately related to an additional $2.6 million in commissions paid on the higher volume of mortgage loan originations and personnel in the Bank’s branches in the Permian Basin that were acquired in the fourth quarter of 2019 through the Company’s acquisition of WTSB, partially offset by a reduction in the Bank’s online mortgage platform personnel and other efficiency enhancements. There was also an increase in variable mortgage expenses, such as appraisal expenses, due to the increased mortgage production during the quarter. Other noninterest expenses also increased due to the acquisition of WTSB, including occupancy and other noninterest expenses for the branches acquired and core deposit intangible amortization expense. The increase from the first quarter of 2020 was primarily the result of an additional $2.2 million in commissions and higher other variable expenses as a result of increased mortgage production, partially offset by higher expenses in the first quarter of 2020 for data conversion expenses and computer equipment purchased in connection with upgrading the equipment at the acquired branches as well as at existing branches.

Loan Portfolio and Composition

Loans held for investment were $2.33 billion as of June 30, 2020, compared to $2.11 billion as of March 31, 2020 and $1.94 billion as of June 30, 2019. The $222.9 million increase during the second quarter of 2020 as compared to the first quarter of 2020 was primarily the result of the Bank’s origination of $215.3 million in PPP loans and $34.7 million in seasonal funding on agricultural loans, partially offset by paydowns of $13.1 million in non-residential consumer loans and $11.3 million in direct energy loans. As of June 30, 2020, loans held for investment increased $396.1 million from June 30, 2019, largely attributable to the PPP loans and the WTSB acquisition in the fourth quarter of 2019.

Agricultural production loans were $131.5 million as of June 30, 2020, compared to $96.8 million as of March 31, 2020 and $147.7 million as of June 30, 2019.

Deposits and Borrowings

Deposits totaled $2.95 billion as of June 30, 2020, compared to $2.67 billion as of March 31, 2020 and $2.28 billion as of June 30, 2019. Deposits increased $282.0 million in the second quarter of 2020, compared to the first quarter of 2020, primarily as a result of organic growth, customers depositing PPP loan proceeds, and other government stimulus payments and programs. As of June 30, 2020, deposits increased $666.0 million from June 30, 2019. The increase in deposits since June 30, 2019 is primarily a result of the increases noted above as well as the assumption of deposits from the WTSB acquisition in the fourth quarter of 2019.

Noninterest-bearing deposits were $940.9 million as of June 30, 2020, compared to $740.9 million as of March 31, 2020 and $513.4 million as of June 30, 2019. Noninterest-bearing deposits represented 31.9%, 27.8%, and 22.5% of total deposits as of June 30, 2020, March 31, 2020, and June 30, 2019, respectively. The increases in noninterest-bearing deposit balances at June 30, 2020 compared to the other periods is the same as detailed above.

Asset Quality

The provision for loan losses recorded for the second quarter of 2020 was $13.1 million, compared to $875,000 for the second quarter of 2019 and $6.2 million for the first quarter of 2020. The increase in the provision for loan losses in the second quarter of 2020 compared to the second quarter of 2019 is a result of economic effects from COVID-19 as well as the decline in oil and gas prices that started in the first quarter of 2019. The increase in the provision for loan losses in the second quarter of 2020 compared to the first quarter of 2020 is a result of a further worsening of the economy and continued uncertainty from COVID-19. The full extent of the impact on the economy and the Bank’s customers is unknown at this time. Accordingly, additional provisions for loan losses may be necessary in future periods.

The allowance for loan losses to loans held for investment was 1.74% as of June 30, 2020, compared to 1.38% as of March 31, 2020 and 1.25% as of June 30, 2019. The allowance for loan losses to non-PPP loans held for investment was 1.91% as of June 30, 2020.

The nonperforming assets to total assets ratio as of June 30, 2020 was 0.33%, compared to 0.28% as of March 31, 2020 and 0.37% at June 30, 2019.

Annualized net charge-offs were 0.27% for the second quarter of 2020, compared to 0.25% for the first quarter of 2020 and 0.02% for the second quarter of 2019.
