ST. LOUIS, April 28, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Enterprise Financial Services Corp (NASDAQ: EFSC) (the "Company") reported net income of $11.0 million for the quarter ended March 31, 2016, an increase of $0.3 million, or 3%, as compared to the linked fourth quarter.  Net income per diluted share was $0.54 for the quarter ended March 31, 2016, an increase of $0.02 compared to $0.52 per diluted share for the linked fourth quarter.  The increase from the linked quarter resulted from an increase in net interest income and lower noninterest expense, as the fourth quarter of 2015 included a pretax charge of $2.4 million from early termination of the Company's loss share agreements with the FDIC.  First quarter 2016 net income increased 18% compared to $9.3 million for the prior year period, and diluted earnings per share increased 17% from $0.46 reported a year ago.  The increase in net income over the prior year was largely due to an increase in net interest income from strong loan growth, and a decrease in provision for loan losses on portfolio loans from improved credit quality.

On a core basis1, the Company reported net income of $9.4 million, or $0.47 per diluted share, for the quarter ended March 31, 2016, compared to $10.1 million, or $0.49 per diluted share, in the linked fourth quarter.  The decrease was due to lower noninterest income from seasonal fluctuations in state tax credit sales, partially offset by an increase in net interest income from strong loan growth and net interest margin expansion.  First quarter 2016 core net income increased 32% from $7.1 million for the prior year period, and diluted core earnings per share grew 34% from $0.35 for the prior year period.  The increase was primarily due to higher levels of net interest income from continued growth in earning asset balances, combined with noninterest expense controls.  

The Company's Board of Directors approved an additional one cent per common share increase in the Company's quarterly dividend to $0.10 per common share from $0.09 for the second quarter of 2016, payable on June 30, 2016 to shareholders of record as of June 15, 2016.

Peter Benoist, President and CEO, commented, "First quarter results reflected our continuing momentum at Enterprise, with reported earnings per share up 4% for the linked quarter, and 17% year over year. Profitability measures were consistent with our high performance objectives, exceeding a 120 basis point return on assets and a 12% return on equity. Notably, we earned back the entire FDIC loss share early termination charge during the quarter."

"While the general banking environment remains challenged, our core banking operations performed very well again in the first quarter," said Benoist. "We increased portfolio loans at a 12% annual rate, continuing the strong loan growth achieved throughout last year. Our specialty lending businesses continued to expand at a brisk pace and exceeded $600 million in assets at quarter-end. Core net interest margin widened another four basis points in the quarter and was eight basis points higher than a year ago. Asset quality measures remained strong, and we recorded net loan recoveries again for the quarter."

"Overall, this was another strong quarter across the board. It warranted our fifth consecutive quarterly dividend increase and marked a great start to the year," added Benoist.

Net Interest Income

Net interest income in the first quarter increased $0.3 million from the linked fourth quarter, and $3.4 million from the prior year period due to strong growth in portfolio loan balances.  The net interest margin, on a fully tax equivalent basis, was 3.87% for the first quarter, compared to 3.91% in the linked fourth quarter, and 3.92% in the first quarter of 2015.

The yield on Portfolio loans was 4.19% in the first quarter, an increase of three basis points from the linked fourth quarter, and four basis points higher than the prior year period.  In the first quarter of 2016, the yield on Purchased credit impaired ("PCI") loans was 22.67%, as compared to 24.79% in the linked quarter, and 20.85% in the prior year period.

The cost of interest-bearing liabilities declined two basis points to 0.48% in the first quarter of 2016 from 0.50% in the linked fourth quarter, and was eight basis points lower than 0.56% in the first quarter of 2015, primarily from lower rates on time deposit balances and a more favorable funding mix.

Core net interest margin1, defined as the net interest margin (fully tax equivalent), including contractual interest on PCI loans but excluding the incremental accretion on these loans, was as follows:

Core net interest income129,594  28,667  27,087  26,277  25,587 

Core net interest income1 increased 16% compared to the prior year period due to strong portfolio loan growth and improvement in the cost of interest-bearing liabilities as discussed above.  Core net interest income increased by $0.9 million to $29.6 million, and core net interest margin1 increased four basis points to 3.54%, when compared to the linked quarter.  Core net interest margin expanded eight basis points from the prior year quarter, primarily due to loan growth improving the earning asset mix, lower funding costs, and the aforementioned increase in the yield on portfolio loans.  The Company continues to manage its balance sheet to grow core net interest income and expects to maintain or improve core net interest margin over the coming quarters; however, pressure on funding costs and continued reductions in PCI loan balances could negate the expected trends in core net interest margin.

Portfolio loans

Portfolio loans increased to $2.8 billion at March 31, 2016, increasing $82 million, or 12% on an annualized basis, when compared to the linked quarter.  On a year over year basis, portfolio loans increased $397 million, or 16%.  The Company continues to expect loan growth at or above 10% for 2016.

Commercial and industrial ("C&I") loans increased $61 million during the first quarter of 2016 compared to the linked fourth quarter.  C&I loans represented 55% of the Company's loan portfolio at March 31, 2016, consistent with December 31, 2015 levels.  C&I loans grew $286 million, or 23%, since March 31, 2015.  During the quarter ended March 31, 2016, the Company also grew loans in all other major categories except Consumer and other.

The Company continues to focus on originating high-quality C&I relationships, as they typically have variable interest rates and allow for cross selling opportunities involving other banking products.  The Company's specialized lending products, particularly enterprise value lending and life insurance premium finance, have contributed to the growth in the C&I category.  C&I loan growth also supports management's efforts to maintain the Company's asset sensitive interest rate risk position.  At March 31, 2016, 62% of our portfolio loans had variable interest rates, consistent with the linked quarter and prior year period.

The following table presents Portfolio loans with selected specialized lending detail for the most recent five quarters:

PCI loans

PCI loans totaled $63.5 million at March 31, 2016, a decrease of $11.3 million, or 15%, from the linked fourth quarter, and $31.3 million, or 33%, from the prior year period, primarily as a result of principal paydowns and accelerated loan payoffs.

In the first quarter of 2016, $0.1 million reversal of provision for loan losses was recorded for certain loan pools.  At March 31, 2016, the remaining accretable yield on the portfolio was estimated to be $21 million and the non-accretable difference was approximately $27 million.

In the fourth quarter of 2015, the Company incurred a $2.4 million charge to terminate all existing loss share agreements with the FDIC.  As of March 31, 2016, the entire charge has been earned back through accretion from early repayment of PCI loans, loan recoveries, and provision reversal, all no longer shared with the FDIC.

Asset quality for Portfolio loans and Other real estate

Net charge-offs (recoveries)$(99) $(647) $113  $672  $1,478 

Nonperforming loans increased 5% to $9.5 million at March 31, 2016, from $9.1 million at December 31, 2015, and decreased 37% from $15.1 million at March 31, 2015.  During the quarter ended March 31, 2016, there were $2.9 million of additions to nonperforming loans, $2.2 million of other principal reductions, $0.3 million assets transferred to other real estate, and no assets transferred to performing.  The additions to nonperforming loans consisted of two unrelated accounts.  Despite the increase, Nonperforming loans were 0.34% of portfolio loans, and Nonperforming assets were 0.52% of total assets at March 31, 2016

The Company's allowance for loan losses was 1.21% of loans at March 31, 2016, representing 361% of nonperforming loans, as compared to 1.22% at December 31, 2015, representing 368% of nonperforming loans, and 1.24% at March 31, 2015, representing 200% of nonperforming loans.  The increase in the ratio of allowance for loan losses to nonperforming loans from the prior year period is primarily due to the 37% decrease in nonperforming loans discussed previously.

Deposits

Total deposits at March 31, 2016 were $2.9 billion, an increase of $147.2 million, or 21% on an annualized basis, from December 31, 2015, and $257.1 million, or 10%, from March 31, 2015.  The increase from the linked quarter was largely due to an increase in brokered certificates of deposit to fund significant loan growth in the quarter.  Core deposits, defined as total deposits excluding time deposits, were $2.5 billion at March 31, 2016, an increase of $42 million, or 7% on an annualized basis, from the linked quarter, and $362 million, or 17%, when compared to the prior year period.  The overall positive trends in deposits reflect enhanced deposit gathering efforts in both commercial and business banking.

Noninterest-bearing deposits increased $2.2 million compared to December 31, 2015, and increased $38.7 million compared to the quarter ended March 31, 2015.  The composition of Noninterest-bearing deposits remained relatively stable at 25% of total deposits at March 31, 2016, compared to December 31, 2015 and March 31, 2015.  The total cost of deposits declined two basis points to 0.34% compared to 0.36% at December 31, 2015, and declined six basis points since March 31, 2015.

Noninterest income

Deposit service charges for the first quarter of 2016 of $2.0 million remained stable when compared to the linked quarter, and grew 10% compared to the prior year quarter partially due to growth in customer relationships.  Additionally, Wealth management revenues were consistent at $1.7 million when compared to the linked fourth quarter and the prior year period.

Trust assets under management were $878 million at March 31, 2016, an increase of 1% when compared to December 31, 2015, and decreased $16 million, or 2% when compared to the prior year period.  The increase from the linked quarter was primarily due to the addition of new clients, and the decrease from the prior year period was largely due to market decline.

Gains from state tax credit brokerage activities were $0.5 million for the first quarter of 2016, compared to $1.7 million for the linked fourth quarter, and $0.7 million in the first quarter of 2015.  Sales of state tax credits can vary by quarter, but generally occur in the first and fourth quarters of the year depending on client demand and availability of the tax credits.

Other noninterest income of $1.7 million remained stable compared to the linked quarter, and increased 8% from the prior year period.  The increase from the prior year period was due to slight increases in swap fee income, card fee income, and gains on sales of mortgages.

Noninterest expenses

Noninterest expenses were $20.8 million for the quarter ended March 31, 2016, compared to $22.9 million for the quarter ended December 31, 2015, and $20.0 million for the quarter ended March 31, 2015.  Core noninterest expenses1, which exclude certain non-comparable items and expenses directly related to PCI assets, were $20.4 million for the quarter ended March 31, 2016, compared to $20.0 million for the linked quarter, and $19.1 million for the prior year period.  The increase from the linked quarter and prior year period was largely due to an increase in Employee compensation and benefits from the addition of client service personnel to accommodate growth and a seasonal increase in payroll taxes.

The Company's Core efficiency ratio1 was 57.4% for the quarter ended March 31, 2016, compared to 56.1% for the linked quarter, and 60.7% for the prior year period, and reflects overall expense management, and revenue growth trends.   

The Company anticipates total noninterest expenses to be between $19 million and $21 million per quarter for 2016.

Other Business Results

During the quarter ended March 31, 2016, the Company repurchased 160,100 common shares at $26.30 per share under its publicly announced plan.  The plan allows for repurchase of up to two million common shares, representing approximately 10% of the Company's currently outstanding shares.

The total risk based capital ratio1 was 12.02% at March 31, 2016, compared to 11.85% at December 31, 2015, and 12.88% at March 31, 2015.  The Company's Common equity tier 1 capital ratio1 was 9.20% at March 31, 2016, compared to 9.05% at December 31, 2015, and 9.78% at March 31, 2015.  The tangible common equity ratio1 was 8.87% at March 31, 2016, versus 8.88% at December 31, 2015, and 9.01% at March 31, 2015.

The Company's capital management combined with asset growth has resulted in a stable tangible common equity ratio, despite continued earnings growth.  Capital ratios for the current quarter are based on the Basel III regulatory capital framework as applied to the Company's current businesses and operations, and are subject to, among other things, completion and filing of the Company's regulatory reports and ongoing regulatory review and implementation guidance.  The attached tables contain a reconciliation of these ratios to U.S. GAAP financial measures.

The Company's effective tax rate was 34.8% for the quarter ended March 31, 2016 compared to 33.8% for the quarter ended December 31, 2015, and 35.0% for the quarter ended March 31, 2015.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures1

The Company's accounting and reporting policies conform to generally accepted accounting principles in the United States ("GAAP") and the prevailing practices in the banking industry. However, the Company provides other financial measures, such as Core net income and net interest margin, and other Core performance measures, regulatory capital ratios, and the tangible common equity ratio, in this release that are considered "non-GAAP financial measures." Generally, a non-GAAP financial measure is a numerical measure of a company's financial performance, financial position, or cash flows that exclude (or include) amounts that are included in (or excluded from) the most directly comparable measure calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP.

The Company considers its Core performance measures presented in this earnings release and the included tables as important measures of financial performance, even though they are non-GAAP measures, as they provide supplemental information by which to evaluate the impact of PCI loans and related income and expenses, the impact of certain non-comparable items, and the Company's operating performance on an ongoing basis.  Core performance measures include contractual interest on PCI loans, but exclude incremental accretion on these loans.  Core performance measures also exclude the Change in FDIC receivable, Gain or loss on sale of other real estate from PCI loans, and expenses directly related to PCI loans and other assets formerly covered under FDIC loss share agreements.  Core performance measures also exclude certain other income and expense items the Company believes to be not indicative of or useful to measure the Company's operating performance on an ongoing basis.  The attached tables contain a reconciliation of these Core performance measures to the GAAP measures.  The Company believes that the tangible common equity ratio provides useful information to investors about  the Company's capital strength even though it is considered to be a non-GAAP financial measure and is not part of the regulatory capital requirements to which the Company is subject.

The Company believes these non-GAAP measures and ratios, when taken together with the corresponding GAAP measures and ratios, provide meaningful supplemental information regarding the Company's performance and capital strength. The Company's management uses, and believes that investors benefit from referring to, these non-GAAP measures and ratios in assessing the Company's operating results and related trends and when forecasting future periods. However, these non-GAAP measures and ratios should be considered in addition to, and not as a substitute for or preferable to, ratios prepared in accordance with GAAP.  In the attached tables, the Company has provided a reconciliation of, where applicable, the most comparable GAAP financial measures and ratios to the non-GAAP financial measures and ratios, or a reconciliation of the non-GAAP calculation of the financial measure for the periods indicated.

The Company will host a conference call and webcast at 2:30 p.m. Central time on Thursday, April 28, 2016.  During the call, management will review the first quarter of 2016 results and related matters.  This press release as well as a related slide presentation will be accessible on Enterprise Financial Services Corp's website at www.enterprisebank.com under "Investor Relations" beginning prior to the scheduled broadcast of the conference call.  The call can be accessed via this same website page, or via telephone at 1-800-533-7619 (Conference ID #1739499.)  A recorded replay of the conference call will be available on the website beginning two hours after the call's completion.  The telephone replay will be available at 1-866-375-1919 (replay passcode #1739499.)  The replays will be available for approximately two weeks following the conference call.
