LOS ANGELES, Aug. 04, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- RBB Bancorp (NASDAQ:RBB) and its subsidiaries, Royal Business Bank ("the Bank") and RBB Asset Management Company ("RAM"), collectively referred to herein as "the Company", announced earnings for the quarter ended June 30, 2017.

The Company reported net income of $8.5 million, or $0.62 diluted earnings per share for the three months ended June 30, 2017, compared to a net income of $5.5 million or $0.40 diluted earnings per share and $5.2 million or $0.38 diluted earnings per share for the three months ended March 31, 2017 and June 30, 2016, respectively. Included in the net income for the three months ended June 30, 2017 is a recapture of the provision for loan losses of $4.2 million, reflecting both the receipt of a guaranteed payment on a SBA 7A guaranteed loan of $629,000 in May 2017 that was previously charged-off and the receipt of $3.6 million in July 2017 pursuant to a SBA loan guaranty that we previously fully reserved for in the allowance for loan losses. The effect of the recapture of the provision for loan losses on our after-tax income is approximately $2.5 million. Excluding this one-time event from net income for the three months ended June 30, 2017 would result in net income of approximately $6.0 million and $0.47 in diluted earnings per share.

Mr. Alan Thian, Chairman, President and CEO, stated that we have had a very exciting quarter. On July 31, 2017, we completed our initial public offering of 3,750,000 shares at a price to the public of $23.00 per share and a total offering size of $86,250,000. The offering was originally 3,000,000 shares but due to demand, we increased it to 3,750,000 shares. RBB Bancorp sold 2,857,756 shares and the selling shareholders sold 892,244 shares of RBB Bancorp's common stock. The offering resulted in gross proceeds to RBB Bancorp of approximately $61.8 million. RBB Bancorp intends to contribute $25 million of the net proceeds received from this offering to the Bank. Our stock now trades on the Nasdaq Global Select Market under the symbol "RBB."

The increase in net income for the three months ended June 30, 2017 as compared to the three months ended June 30, 2016 is attributable primarily to an increase in noninterest income and a reduction in noninterest expense and the recapture of the provision for loan losses of $4.2 million. The increase in net income for the three months ended June 30, 2017 as compared to the second quarter of 2016 is the result of increased loan sales, service charges and lower expenses associated with the TomatoBank merger.

Net income of $8.5 million for the second quarter of 2017 produced an annualized return on average equity of 18.27% and an annualized return on average assets of 2.29%. The efficiency ratio for the second quarter of 2017 was 40.44% compared to 42.92% for the same period last year. Adjusted annualized return on average assets and average tangible common equity for the second quarter of 2017 was 1.49% and 14.28%, respectively compared to 1.37% and 14.57% for the second quarter of 2016.

Net income totaled $14.0 million for the six months ended June 30, 2017 or $1.02 diluted earnings per share compared to $8.0 million or $0.58 diluted earnings per share for the same period in 2016. This represented an increase of $6.0 million, or 75.45%, when compared to net income for the same period ended June 30, 2016. The increase in our net income for the six months ended June 30, 2017 as compared to the six months ended June 30, 2016 is attributable to organic and acquisition growth, recapture of the loan loss provision, higher noninterest income and lower noninterest expense. The increase in noninterest income is due to increased loan sales activity and service charges as a result of the TomatoBank acquisition. The decrease in noninterest expense is due to reduced conversion expenses resulting from the consolidation of TomatoBank. Included in the net income for the six months ended June 30, 2017 is a recapture of the provision for loan losses of $4.2 million as detailed above. Excluding this one-time event from net income for the six months ended June 30, 2017 would result in net income of approximately $11.5 million and $0.84 in diluted earnings per share.

Net income for the six months ended June 30, 2017 and 2016 produced an annualized return on average tangible common equity of 15.25% and 9.61%, respectively, and an annualized return on average assets of 1.93% and 1.26%, respectively. The adjusted annualized return on average equity was 13.65% and 11.69% for the six months ended June 30, 2017 and 2016, respectively. The adjusted return on average assets was 1.43% and 1.32% for the six months ended June 30, 2017 and 2016, respectively. The efficiency ratio for the six months ended June 30, 2017 was 40.83%, compared to 49.12% for the six months ended June 30, 2016.

Net interest income before (recapture) provision for loan losses was $14.0 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2017, which was a $1.5 million or a 9.45% decrease from the second quarter of 2016. Total interest income and fees on loans for the second quarter of 2017 of $16.8 million decreased $1.5 million, or 8.01%, from the second quarter of 2016. This decrease was primarily due to accretion income being lower by $1.5 million in the second quarter of 2017 as compared to the second quarter of 2016. Accretion income was lower in the second quarter of 2017 as compared to the second quarter of 2016 because of early payoffs of TomatoBank loans that accelerated the accretion of the discounts associated with those loans in the second quarter of 2016. Interest income on investment securities increased $107,000, or 51.94%, from the second quarter of 2016 due primarily to the average balance in investment securities increasing by $10.0 million. Net interest income before (recapture) provision for loan losses for the six months ended June 30, 2017 and 2016 was constant at $27.5 million for each period.

Noninterest income was $3.2 million for the second quarter of 2017, compared to $2.4 million in the first quarter of 2017 and $2.3 million for the second quarter of 2016. For the first six months of 2017, noninterest income was $5.6 million, compared to $3.7 million for the same period of 2016. The year-over-year increase of $1.9 million was primarily due to an increase in net gain on sale of loans of $1.5 million.

Noninterest expense for the second quarter of 2017 was $7.0 million compared to $6.6 million for the first quarter of 2017 and $7.7 million for the second quarter of 2016. The $695,000 decrease when compared to the second quarter of 2016 was primarily the result of a decrease in legal and professional expense of $655,000.

Noninterest expense for the first six months of 2017 decreased $1.8 million from the same period last year. Year-over-year increases included $1.4 million in salary costs, primarily due to growth in personnel from the TFC acquisition. Legal and professional expense decreased $1.1 million. Non-recurring acquisition related expenses in connection with the TFC acquisition were $1.7 million for the six months ended June 30, 2016.

Net Interest Income and Net Interest Margin

Net interest income, before (recapture) provision for loan losses, was $14.0 million for the second quarter of 2017, compared to $13.5 million for the first quarter of 2017 and $15.5 million for the second quarter of 2016. Our net interest margin was 4.02% for the second quarter of 2017, compared to 4.57% for the second quarter of 2016. Total average earning asset yield was 5.02% for the second quarter of 2017 compared to 5.51% for the second quarter of 2016. The decrease in our margin is primarily due to lower accretion of purchased discounts between the second quarter of 2017 and the second quarter of 2016. (see adjusted earnings metrics table on page 12)

Income Taxes

Our effective tax rate for the three and six months ended June 30, 2017 was 40.87% and 41.07%, respectively, compared with 41.60% and 40.92% for the three and six months ended June 30, 2016, respectively. Our estimated annual effective tax rate varies depending upon tax-advantaged income as well as available tax credits.

The Company sold $37.7 million in mortgage loans for a net gain of $802,000 during the quarter ended June 30, 2017, compared to $70.2 million loans sold and a $1.1 million net gain for the same period in 2016.

The Company sold $23.1 million in SBA loans for a net gain of $1.5 million during the quarter ended June 30, 2017 compared to $7.5 million sold in SBA loans for a net gain of $468,000 for the same period in 2016.

Earning assets

Loans held for investment, net of deferred fees and discounts, totaled $1.15 billion at June 30, 2017, a decrease of $43.4 million or 3.65%, from June 30, 2016 and an increase of $35.6 million or 3.2% from December 31, 2016. The decrease was primarily the result of scheduled maturities and early payoffs of TomatoBank loans purchased at a discount that did not fit our credit or pricing profile and we did not attempt to renew the loans.

Mortgage loans held for sale increased to $83.3 million as of June 30, 2017 compared to $44.3 million and $46.5 million as of December 31, 2016 and June 30, 2016, respectively. The increase is due to higher originations of single-family residential mortgage loans held for sale.

Total loans (including held for investment and held for sale) net of deferred fees and discounts as of June 30, 2017 were $1.23 billion, as compared to $1.15 billion as of December 31, 2016 and $1.24 billion as of June 30, 2016. The increase in loans as of June 30, 2017 was due to normal loan growth during the first half of 2017.

Investment securities increased to $46.4 million as of June 30, 2017 compared to $45.5 million and $36.3 million as of December 31, 2016 and June 30, 2016, respectively. The increase is due to normal investment activity

Deposits and borrowings

Deposits were at $1.3 billion at June 30, 2017, representing a 6.7% increase when compared to June 30, 2016 and a 10.9% increase from year-end 2016. The second quarter 2017 deposit balances reflect increases in all deposit types from December 31, 2016.

Noninterest-bearing deposits increased to $215.7 million as of June 30, 2017 as compared to $174.3 million and $155.2 million as of December 31, 2016 and June 30, 2016, respectively. The growth in noninterest-bearing deposits is mainly due to marketing efforts by our branches and by branch management.

Borrowings, consisting of long-term debt, has remained constant at $52.8 million as June 30, 2017 compared to $52.7 million and $52.6 million as of December 31, 2016 and June 30, 2016, respectively. Although we borrowed from the FHLB during the quarter, we had no FHLB borrowings at June 30, 2017.

Shareholders' equity

Shareholders' equity increased to $192.3 million as of June 30, 2017 compared to $181.6 million and $170.5 million as of December 31, 2016 and June 30, 2016 due to ongoing earnings of the Company.

Nonperforming assets totaled $9.3 million at June 30, 2017, $7.0 million at December 31, 2016 and $7.8 million at June 30, 2016. Included in the nonperforming assets at June 30, 2017 and 2016 is a SBA loan for $3.6 million that, pursuant to a SBA loan guaranty, the Company received full payment on the guarantee in July 2017. Nonperforming assets consist of Other Real Estate Owned (foreclosed properties), loans modified under troubled debt restructurings (TDRs), non-accrual loans, and loans past due 90 days or more and still accruing interest. Nonperforming assets exclude PCI loans acquired in prior acquisitions.

The allowance for loan losses totaled $10.6 million at June 30, 2017, compared to $14.2 million at December 31, 2016 and $12.1 million at June 30, 2016. The allowance for loan losses was 0.93%, 1.28%, and 1.02% of total loans held for investment, at June 30, 2017, December 31, 2016, and June 30, 2016, respectively. This decrease in the allowance for loan losses was due to the recapture of the provision for loan losses for the SBA loans described above.

Nonperforming loans, defined as loans modified under troubled debt restructurings (TDRs), non-accrual loans, and loans past due 90 days or more and still accruing interest were $8.5 million at June 30, 2017, or 0.74% of total loans.

There were no additions to OREO for the six months ended June 30, 2017.

At June 30, 2017, we had loans delinquent 30 to 89 days of $20.7 million. This compares to $343,000 at December 31, 2016 and $2.3 million at June 30, 2016. As a percentage of total loans, delinquencies, excluding nonaccruals, were 1.81% at June 30, 2017, 0.03% at December 31, 2016 and 0.19% at June 30, 2016.

The Company had $2.6 million in performing TDR loans at June 30, 2017 and December 31, 2016. The Company had four performing TDR loans at June 30, 2017 and December 31, 2016.

Adjusted Earnings Metrics (non-GAAP)

Management uses the measure adjusted earnings to assess the performance of our core business and the strength of our capital position. We believe that this non-GAAP financial measure provides meaningful additional information about us to assist investors in evaluating our operating results. This non-GAAP financial measure should not be considered a substitute for operating results determined in accordance with GAAP and may not be comparable to other similarly titled measures used by other companies. The following table reconciles adjusted earnings, adjusted diluted earnings per share, adjusted return on average assets and adjusted return on average tangible common equity to their most comparable GAAP measures.
