Results of Operations for the Three Months Ended June 30, 2021

Net Interest Income

For the three months ended June 30, 2021, net interest income before provision for credit losses was $67.1 million and net interest margin was 3.11% compared to $65.6 million and 3.22%, respectively, for the three months ended March 31, 2021. Net interest margin decreased 11 basis points from the three months ended March 31, 2021 primarily due to a decrease in the average yields earned on loans, partially offset by a decrease in the average rates paid on interest-bearing demand and savings deposits and certificate and other time deposits for the three months ended June 30, 2021. As a result, the average cost of interest-bearing deposits decreased 10 basis points to 0.35% for the three months ended June 30, 2021 from 0.45% for the three months ended March 31, 2021.

Net interest income before provision for credit losses increased by $1.4 million from $65.8 million to $67.1 million and net interest margin decreased by 20 basis points from 3.31% to 3.11% for the three months ended June 30, 2021 as compared to the same period in 2020. The increase in net interest income before provision for credit losses was primarily due to a $4.1 million decrease in interest expense on certificate and other time deposits, partially offset by a $2.6 million decrease in interest income on loans during the three months ended June 30, 2021 compared to the three months ended June 30, 2020. Net interest margin decreased 20 basis points from the three months ended June 30, 2020 primarily due to a decrease in the average yields earned on loans, partially offset by decreases in the average rate paid on interest-bearing demand and savings deposits and certificates and other time deposits for the three months ended June 30, 2021. As a result, the average cost of interest-bearing deposits decreased 49 basis points to 0.35% for the three months ended June 30, 2021 from 0.84% for the three months ended June 30, 2020.

Noninterest Income

Noninterest income for the three months ended June 30, 2021 was $12.5 million, a decrease of $1.7 million, or 12.1%, compared to the three months ended March 31, 2021. The decrease was primarily due to a $3.1 million decrease in government guaranteed loan income, net, driven by a $5.6 million decrease in fee income earned on PPP loans during the three months ended June 30, 2021 compared to the three months ended March 31, 2021. This decrease was partially offset by a $2.0 million increase in gain on sale of Small Business Administration (“SBA”) loans during the three months ended June 30, 2021. The decrease in noninterest income was partially offset by a $663 thousand increase in insurance income recognized during the three months ended June 30, 2021 associated with the Company’s bank owned life insurance policy.

Compared to the three months ended June 30, 2020, noninterest income for the three months ended June 30, 2021 decreased by $8.8 million, or 41.5%. The decrease was primarily due to a $7.6 million decrease in government guaranteed loan income, net, driven by an $11.5 million decrease in fee income earned on PPP loans during the three months ended June 30, 2021 compared the same period in 2020, partially offset by a $2.6 million increase in the valuation of PPP loans held at fair value and a $2.0 million increase in gain on sale of SBA loans during the three months ended June 30, 2021 compared to the same period in 2020. The decrease was also due in part to a $2.9 million decrease in gain on sales of investment securities during the three months ended June 30, 2021 compared to the same period in 2020. This decrease was partially offset by $811 thousand increase in insurance income recognized during the three months ended June 30, 2021 associated with the Company’s bank owned life insurance policy.

Noninterest Expense

Noninterest expense was $41.7 million for the three months ended June 30, 2021, compared to $39.6 million for the three months ended March 31, 2021, an increase of $2.1 million, or 5.4%. The increase was primarily driven by a $932 thousand increase in marketing expenses as a result of increased advertising and Community Reinvestment Act donations, a $627 thousand increase in severance payments made as a result of branch restructurings, a $203 thousand increase in write downs of certain other real estate owned properties and a $194 thousand increase in loan related legal expenses during the three months ended June 30, 2021 compared to the three months ended March 31, 2021.

Compared to the three months ended June 30, 2020, noninterest expense for the three months ended June 30, 2021 increased by $1.7 million, or 4.1%. The increase was primarily driven by a $3.4 million increase in salaries and employee benefits as a result of a $1.6 million increase in accrued employee bonus, a $1.4 million increase in salaries and a $786 thousand increase in employee stock based compensation during the three months ended June 30, 2021 compared to the same period in 2020. The increase was also driven by a $1.3 million increase in marketing expenses as a result of increased advertising during the three months ended June 30, 2021 compared to the same period in 2020. These increases were partially offset by a $1.2 million decrease in COVID-19 expenses and a $1.6 million decrease in debt extinguishment costs, which were both incurred during the three months ended June 30, 2020 with no corresponding expense during the same period in 2021.

Financial Condition

Total LHI, excluding MW and PPP, were $6.3 billion, an increase of $308.6 million, or 20.7%, annualized, compared to March 31, 2021. Total loans were $7.1 billion at June 30, 2021, an increase of $145.8 million, or 8.3% annualized, compared to March 31, 2021. The increases were the result of the continued execution and success of our loan growth strategy.

Total deposits were $7.0 billion at June 30, 2021, an increase of $74.3 million, or 4.3% annualized, compared to March 31, 2021. The increase was primarily the result of an increase of $216.3 million in noninterest-bearing demand deposits, partially offset by a decrease of $76.7 million in interest-bearing transaction and savings deposits and a decrease of $65.3 million in certificates and other time deposits.

Asset Quality

NPAs totaled $79.9 million, or 0.85% of total assets at June 30, 2021, compared to $85.0 million, or 0.92% of total assets, at March 31, 2021. Included in NPAs as of June 30, 2021 is $462 thousand of accruing loans 90 or more days past due that are considered well-secured and in the process of collection which is down from $9.1 million as of March 31, 2021. The Company’s net charge-offs for the three months ended June 30, 2021 were $5.4 million, which were fully reserved against in prior periods.

The Company recorded no provision for credit losses for the three months ended June 30, 2021 and March 31, 2021, compared to $16.2 million for the three months ended June 30, 2020. The decrease in the recorded provision for credit losses for the three months ended June 30, 2021, compared to the three months ended June 30, 2020, was primarily attributable to improvement in the Texas economic forecasts used in the Current Expected Credit Losses (“CECL”) model in the second quarter of 2021 to reflect the expected impact of the COVID-19 pandemic as of June 30, 2021, as compared to our Texas economic forecasts and expected impact of the COVID-19 pandemic as of June 30, 2020. In the second quarter of 2021, we also recorded a $577 thousand provision for unfunded commitments, which was attributable to higher unfunded balances.

ACL as a percentage of LHI, excluding MW and PPP loans, was 1.59%, 1.76% and 2.01% at June 30, 2021, March 31, 2021 and June 30, 2020, respectively.

Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures
(Unaudited)

We identify certain financial measures discussed in this earnings release as being “non-GAAP financial measures.” In accordance with SEC rules, 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 included or excluded, as the case may be, in the most directly comparable measure calculated and presented in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles as in effect from time to time in the United States (“GAAP”), in our statements of income, balance sheets or statements of cash flows. Non-GAAP financial measures do not include operating and other statistical measures or ratios calculated using exclusively either one or both of (i) financial measures calculated in accordance with GAAP and (ii) operating measures or other measures that are not non-GAAP financial measures.

The non-GAAP financial measures that we present in this earnings release 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 manner in which we calculate the non-GAAP financial measures that we present in this earnings release may differ from that of other companies reporting measures with similar names. You should understand how such other financial institutions calculate their financial measures that appear to be similar or have similar names to the non-GAAP financial measures we have discussed in this earnings release when comparing such non-GAAP financial measures.

Tangible Book Value Per Common Share. Tangible book value is a non-GAAP measure generally used by financial analysts and investment bankers to evaluate financial institutions. We calculate: (a) tangible common equity as total stockholders’ equity less goodwill and core deposit intangibles, net of accumulated amortization; and (b) tangible book value per common share as tangible common equity (as described in clause (a)) divided by number of common shares outstanding. For tangible book value per common share, the most directly comparable financial measure calculated in accordance with GAAP is book value per common share.

We believe that this measure is important to many investors in the marketplace who are interested in changes from period to period in book value per common share exclusive of changes in core deposit intangibles. Goodwill and other intangible assets have the effect of increasing total book value while not increasing our tangible book value.

The following table reconciles, as of the dates set forth below, total stockholders’ equity to tangible common equity and presents our tangible book value per common share compared with our book value per common share:

Tangible Common Equity to Tangible Assets. Tangible common equity to tangible assets is a non-GAAP measure generally used by financial analysts and investment bankers to evaluate financial institutions. We calculate: (a) tangible common equity as total stockholders’ equity, less goodwill and core deposit intangibles, net of accumulated amortization; (b) tangible assets as total assets less goodwill and core deposit intangibles, net of accumulated amortization; and (c) tangible common equity to tangible assets as tangible common equity (as described in clause (a)) divided by tangible assets (as described in clause (b)). For tangible common equity to tangible assets, the most directly comparable financial measure calculated in accordance with GAAP is total stockholders’ equity to total assets.

We believe that this measure is important to many investors in the marketplace who are interested in the relative changes from period to period in common equity and total assets, in each case, exclusive of changes in core deposit intangibles. Goodwill and other intangible assets have the effect of increasing both total stockholders’ equity and assets while not increasing our tangible common equity or tangible assets.

Return on Average Tangible Common Equity. Return on average tangible common equity is a non-GAAP measure generally used by financial analysts and investment bankers to evaluate financial institutions. We calculate: (a) net income available for common stockholders adjusted for amortization of core deposit intangibles (which we refer to as “return”) as net income, plus amortization of core deposit intangibles, less tax benefit at the statutory rate; (b) average tangible common equity as total average stockholders’ equity less average goodwill and average core deposit intangibles, net of accumulated amortization; and (c) return on average tangible common equity as return (as described in clause (a)) divided by average tangible common equity (as described in clause (b)). For return on average tangible common equity, the most directly comparable financial measure calculated in accordance with GAAP is return on average equity.

We believe that this measure is important to many investors in the marketplace who are interested in the return on common equity, exclusive of the impact of goodwill and core deposit intangibles. Goodwill and core deposit intangibles have the effect of increasing total stockholders’ equity while not increasing our tangible common equity. This measure is particularly relevant to acquisitive institutions that may have higher balances in goodwill and core deposit intangibles than non-acquisitive institutions.

The following table reconciles, as of the dates set forth below, average tangible common equity to average common equity and net income available for common stockholders adjusted for amortization of core deposit intangibles, net of taxes to net income and presents our return on average tangible common equity:

Operating Earnings, Pre-tax, Pre-provision Operating Earnings and performance metrics calculated using Operating Earnings and Pre-tax, Pre-provision Operating Earnings, including Diluted Operating Earnings per Share, Operating Return on Average Assets, Pre-tax, Pre-Provision Operating Return on Average Assets, Operating Return on Average Tangible Common Equity and Operating Efficiency Ratio. Operating earnings, pre-tax, pre-provision operating earnings and the performance metrics calculated using these metrics, listed below, are non-GAAP measures used by management to evaluate the Company’s financial performance. We calculate (a) operating earnings as net income plus severance payments, plus loss (gain) on sale of securities, net, plus debt extinguishment costs, less tax impact of adjustments, plus nonrecurring tax adjustments. We calculate (b) diluted operating earnings per share as operating earnings as described in clause (a) divided by weighted average diluted shares outstanding. We calculate (c) pre-tax, pre-provision operating earnings as operating earnings as described in clause (a) plus provision for income taxes, plus provision for loan losses. We calculate (d) pre-tax, pre-provision operating return on average assets as pre-tax, pre-provision operating earnings as described in clause (a) divided by average total assets. We calculate (e) operating return on average assets as operating earnings as described in clause (a) divided by average total assets. We calculate (f) operating return on average tangible common equity as operating earnings as described in clause (a), adjusted for the amortization of intangibles and tax benefit at the statutory rate, divided by total average tangible common equity (average stockholders’ equity less average goodwill and average core deposit intangibles, net of accumulated amortization). We calculate (g) operating efficiency ratio as noninterest expense plus adjustments to operating noninterest expense divided by (i) noninterest income plus adjustments to operating noninterest income plus (ii) net interest income.

We believe that these measures and the operating metrics calculated utilizing these measures are important to management and many investors in the marketplace who are interested in understanding the ongoing operating performance of the Company and provide meaningful comparisons to its peers.

1 Severance payments relate to branch restructurings made during the three months ended June 30, 2021.
2 Debt extinguishment costs relate to prepayment penalties paid in connection with the early payoff of FHLB structured advances.
3 A nonrecurring tax adjustment of $426 thousand recorded in the first quarter of 2021 was due to a true-up of a deferred tax liability. A nonrecurring tax adjustment of $973 thousand recorded in the fourth quarter of 2020 was primarily due the reversal of acquired deferred tax liabilities resulting in a tax benefit of $1.2 million offset by tax expense of $281 thousand for the setup of an uncertain tax position liability relating to state tax exposure for tax years prior to the year ending December 31, 2020. A nonrecurring tax adjustment of $1,799 was recorded in the second quarter of 2020 as a result of the Company amending a prior year Green Bancorp, Inc. tax return to carry back a net operating loss ("NOL") incurred by Green Bancorp, Inc. on January 1, 2019. The Company was allowed to carry back this NOL as result of a provision in the CARES Act, which permits NOLs generated in tax years 2018, 2019 or 2020 to be carried back five years.
