Share:

BEDMINSTER, N.J., July 27, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Peapack-Gladstone Financial Corporation (NASDAQ Global Select Market:PGC) (the "Company") recorded net income of $22.72 million and diluted earnings per share of $1.20 for the six months ended June 30, 2018, compared to $15.92 million and $0.91, respectively, for the six months ended June 30, 2017, reflecting increases of $6.80 million, or 43 percent, and $0.29 per share, or 32 percent, respectively.

For the same six-month periods, the Company's total revenue increased $11.84 million when comparing the 2018 six-month period to the 2017 six-month period. Of the total revenue increase, $6.59 million (or 56 percent) was provided by increased wealth management fee income.  

For the quarter ended June 30, 2018, the Company recorded net income of $11.91 million and diluted earnings per share of $0.62, compared to $7.94 million and $0.45 for the same three-month period last year, reflecting increases of $3.97 million, or 50 percent, and $0.17 per share, or 38 percent respectively.

For the same quarterly periods, the Company's total revenue increased $5.84 million when comparing the June 2018 quarter to the June 2017 quarter. Of the total revenue increase, $3.04 million (or 52 percent) was provided by increased wealth management fee income.

Douglas L. Kennedy, President and CEO, said, "Increased wealth management business and income has been driven by our Strategy.  Such fee income tends to be more stable and predictable than our other sources of income."

(1) The March 2018 quarter included a $362 thousand reduction in income taxes associated with the vesting of restricted stock under ASU 2016-09.

Mr. Kennedy said, "We had a good start to 2018, as we continued to execute on our strategic plan – Expanding Our Reach.  Earnings per share growth was 38 percent over the same quarter last year and return on average equity was 11.11 percent for the second quarter of 2018."

Highlights for the quarter included:

  • Wealth Management remains integral to the strategy and tends to be a diversified, predictable, and stable source of revenue:
    • On June 29, 2018, the Company announced its agreement to acquire Lassus Wherley & Associates, P.C, a registered investment advisor, headquartered in New Providence, NJ, which is expected to add approximately $500 million of assets under management and/or administration ("AUM/AUA") upon the closing in the third quarter of 2018.
    • At June 30, 2018, the market value of AUM/AUA at the Private Wealth Management Division of Peapack-Gladstone Bank (the "Bank") increased $1.8 billion to $5.7 billion from $3.9 billion at June 30, 2017, reflecting growth of 46 percent.   Organic growth was $500 million of the $1.8 billion in growth, while the Murphy Capital Management and Quadrant Capital Management acquisitions accounted for $1.3 billion of the growth.
    • Fee income from the Private Wealth Management Division totaled $8.1 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2018, an increase of $3.0 million, or 60 percent, from $5.1 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2017. 
    • Wealth management fee income, which comprised approximately 20 percent of the Company's total revenue for the quarter ended June 30, 2018, contributed significantly to the Company's diversified revenue sources.
    • In addition to wealth income, also contributing to the Company's diversified revenue sources is fee income related to loan level, back-to-back swaps, and gain on sale of SBA loans.
  • The loan portfolio continues to shift from lower yielding multifamily to higher yielding commercial and industrial lending (including Equipment Finance):
    • Total C&I loans at June 30, 2018 were $1.07 billion (average yield of 4.54% for the six months of 2018).  This reflected net growth of $269 million (34 percent) when compared to $801 million in C&I loans at June 30, 2017 (average yield of 4.01% for the six months of 2017).
    • The Company continued to manage its balance sheet such that lower yielding, primarily fixed rate multifamily loans decline as a percentage of the overall loan portfolio and higher yielding, primarily floating rate or short duration C&I loans become a larger percentage of the overall loan portfolio. As of June 30, 2018, total C&I loans comprised 29 percent of the total loan portfolio, as compared to 22 percent a year earlier.  As of June 30, 2018, total multifamily loans comprised 35 percent of the total loan portfolio, as compared to 41 percent a year earlier.
    • The Bank's concentration in multifamily and investor commercial real estate loans declined to 425 percent of risk based capital at June 30, 2018 from 552 percent at June 30, 2017.
  • Deposits, funding, and interest rate risk continue to be actively managed, and reflect the current robust economic environment:
    • Deposits totaled $3.52 billion at June 30, 2018 compared to $3.58 billion at June 30, 2017.  Deposit balances reflected $117 million of net increases in the second half of 2017, but $175 million of net decreases the first half of 2018. 
    • The Bank is a significant provider of depository services to its wealth and commercial clients.  During 2018, many of those clients are reallocating funds into managed assets with the Bank's Wealth Management Group and in outside investment opportunities, and to pay income taxes.  Most of these depositors remain clients of the Company.
    • Other decreases during the first half of 2018 were part of programs to reduce reliance on wholesale sourced deposits and/or reduce volatility or operational risk.  During the six-month period ended June 30, 2018, $113 million of listing service and brokered certificates of deposits matured. As the Company has noted previously, the Company has chosen to not participate in these programs at this time due to the higher current cost, and lack of a core customer. Additionally, the Company chose to exit certain large deposit relationships totaling approximately $90 million that it considered to be too volatile or that exposed the Company to increased operational risk.
    • Total municipal deposits declined $25 million during the six-month period ended June 30, 2018 as the prepaid 2018 real estate tax inflows at the end of 2017 normalized in 2018. 
    • The Company has managed its balance sheet to remain slightly asset sensitive as of June 30, 2018, despite rising deposit betas and costs, which had been noted by the Company over the last several quarters.
    • The Company continues to maintain over $1 billion of available secured funding at the Federal Home Loan Bank.
  • Capital and asset quality continue to be strong.
    • Asset quality metrics continued to be strong at June 30, 2018.  Nonperforming assets at June 30, 2018 were $13.6 million, or 0.32 percent of total assets.  Total loans past due 30 through 89 days and still accruing were $3.5 million, or 0.09 percent of total loans at June 30, 2018.
    • The Company's and Bank's capital ratios at June 30, 2018 all increased significantly compared to the December 31, 2017 and June 30, 2017 levels. These capital positions were benefitted by net income, as well as capital generated through optional cash purchases in the Company's Dividend Reinvestment Plan. 

Supplemental Quarterly Details:

Wealth Management Business

In the June 2018 quarter, the Bank's wealth management business generated $8.13 million in fee income compared to $8.37 million for the March 2018 quarter, and $5.09 million for the June 2017 quarter. 

When compared to the June 2017 quarter, the June 2018 quarter included three months of income related to Murphy Capital, which was acquired effective August 1, 2017, and three months of income related to Quadrant Capital, which was acquired effective November 1, 2017, as well as increased earnings from organic growth in assets under management.  When compared to the March 2018 quarter, the June 2018 quarter continued to be impacted by negative market action seen in the latter part of the March 2018 quarter, partially offset by the benefit from new business.

John P. Babcock, President of the newly branded "Peapack Private," the Bank's Private Wealth Management Division, said, "We continue to grow our wealth management business organically, hire experienced new colleagues and will continue to seek to acquire businesses that can add talent and expertise to our growing business."

Commercial Banking / Loans

For the quarter ended June 30, 2018, total commercial and industrial loans grew $73 million (7 percent for the quarter, or 29 percent annualized) to $1.07 billion at the end of the second quarter, compared to $997 million at the end of the first quarter of 2018. New loan growth was principally funded by managed reductions in lower yielding multifamily loans.

Mr. Kennedy said, "With the launch of our Corporate Advisory Team in January 2018, we now have the capability to engage in high level strategic debt, capital and valuation analysis coupled with succession, estate and wealth planning strategies, enabling us to provide a unique boutique level of service, giving us a competitive advantage over much of our competition."

Funding / Interest Rate Risk Management

As noted and explained previously, the Company actively manages its deposit base to reduce reliance on wholesale sourced deposits and/or reduce volatility or operational risk.

For the quarter ended June 30, 2018, the Company utilized its increased capital, its liquidity, and its managed reductions in its lower yielding multifamily loan portfolio to fund its C&I loan growth and its decrease in overnight borrowings.

During the quarter ended June 30, 2018, the Company added $30 million of medium term FHLB advances, as well as $50 million notional of floating to fixed interest rate swaps, to help manage its interest rate risk position, and protect its asset sensitive position.

In addition to approximately $418 million of cash, cash equivalents and investment securities on its balance sheet, the Company also had approximately $1.3 billion of secured funding available from the Federal Home Loan Bank, of which $180 million was drawn as of June 30, 2018.

Mr. Kennedy noted, "The Company continues to focus on providing high touch client service, a key element in growing its personal and commercial core deposit base.  The Company is focused on various retail channels, as well as commercial channels, including its enhanced Treasury Management and Escrow offerings. Further, all our Private Bankers remain keenly focused on deposit gathering, including our new Professional Services Group, led by a seasoned commercial banker who joined us recently."

Net Interest Income / Net Interest Margin

Net interest income and net interest margin were $29.24 million and 2.82 percent for the second quarter of 2018, compared to $28.39 million and 2.76 percent for the first quarter of 2018, and compared to $26.97 million and 2.76 percent for the same quarter last year.  Net interest income for the second quarter of 2018 benefitted slightly from loan growth as well as $736 thousand (approximately 7 basis points of net interest margin) of prepayment premiums received on the prepayment of multifamily loans, which reflected an increase from $433 thousand (approximately 4 basis points of net interest margin) for the March 2018 quarter and a decrease from $780 thousand (approximately 8 basis points of net interest margin) in the June 2017 quarter.  The June 2018 quarter also benefitted from the amortization of loan fees of $321 thousand related to the full paydown of a special mention C&I credit.  In addition, the June and March 2018 quarters included three months of the impact of the subordinated debt issued in mid-December 2017.

Net interest margin for the second quarter of 2018 increased when compared to the first quarter of 2018, and the same quarter of 2017.  The increase from the same quarter of 2017 was due to the effect of the increased market rates on our adjustable rate assets, partially offset by an increase in our cost of deposits and lower prepayment penalties. The increase from the March 2018 quarter was due to the higher prepayment premiums in the June 2018 quarter.  The issuance of $35 million of subordinated debt in mid-December 2017 negatively impacted net interest margin slightly in the June and March 2018 quarters.

Excluding the effect of prepayment premiums, net interest margins would have been 2.75 percent, 2.72 percent, and 2.68 percent for the June 2018 quarter, March 2018 quarter, and the June 2017 quarter, respectively.

The Company's interest rate sensitivity models indicate that the Company's net interest income and margin would improve slightly in a rising interest rate environment. However, such income and margin may also be impacted by competitive pressures in attracting and/or retaining deposits.

Other Noninterest Income

The second quarter of 2018 included $814 thousand of income related to the Company's SBA lending and sale program, compared to $31 thousand generated in the March 2018 quarter, and $142 thousand in the June 2017 quarter.  At June 30, 2018, there were approximately $3 million of SBA loans held for sale. 

The second quarter of 2018 also included $900 thousand of loan level, back-to-back swap income compared to $252 thousand in the March 2018 quarter and $1.3 million in the June 2017 quarter.  This program provides a borrower with a degree of interest rate protection on a variable rate loan, while still providing an adjustable rate to the Company, thus helping to manage the Company's interest rate risk, while contributing to income.

The Company noted that income from both of these programs are not linear each quarter, as some quarters will be higher than others.

Other income for the June 2018 quarter included increased fees associated with loans relative to the March 2018 and the June 2017 quarters.

The June 2018 quarter included a negative $36 thousand mark to market adjustment of a CRA investment security, which is classified as an equity security.

Operating Expenses

The Company's total operating expenses were $24.94 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2018, compared to $23.34 million for the March 2018 quarter and $20.10 million for the June 2017 quarter.

Compensation and employee benefits expense for the June 2018 quarter was $15.83 million compared to $14.58 million for the March 2018 quarter, and $12.75 million for the June 2017 quarter.  The June 2018 quarter included a full quarter of expense related to the Equipment Finance team (who joined in April 2017), Murphy Capital (which closed in August 2017), and Quadrant Capital (which closed in November 2017). Strategic hiring, normal salary increases and increased bonus/incentive accruals associated with the Company's profitability and growth also contributed to the increase for the June 2018 quarter as compared to the June 2017 quarter.  

Other expenses for the June 2018 quarter were $5.08 million compared to $4.91 million for the March 2018 quarter and $3.71 million for the June 2017 quarter. The June 2018 quarter included a full quarter of other expenses related to the Equipment Finance business, Murphy Capital, and Quadrant Capital. When compared to the June 2017 quarter, the June 2018 quarter included increased advertising and marketing expenses relating to various target marketing campaigns. Further, the June 2018 quarter included the write down of two OREO properties of approximately $200 thousand.

Income Taxes

The June and March 2018 quarters included a reduced Federal income tax rate due to the new tax law signed in December 2017. The March 2018 quarter also included a $362 thousand reduction in income taxes associated with the vesting of restricted stock under ASU 2016-09. The effective tax rate for the June 2018 quarter was 24.3 percent, compared to 22.9 percent for the March 2018 quarter, and 38.2 percent for the June 2017 quarter.

Asset Quality / Provision for Loan and Lease Losses

Late in the June 2018 quarter, the Company received full payoff of a $17.5 million C&I loan designated as special mention, as well as a $4.5 million commercial mortgage classified as substandard.

Nonperforming assets at June 30, 2018 (which does not include troubled debt restructured loans that are performing in accordance with their terms) were $13.6 million, or 0.32 percent of total assets, compared to $15.4 million, or 0.36 percent of total assets, at March 31, 2018 and $16.0 million, or 0.38 percent of total assets, at June 30, 2017.  Total loans past due 30 through 89 days and still accruing were $3.5 million at June 30, 2018, compared to $674 thousand at March 31, 2018 and $1.2 million at June 30, 2017.

For the quarter ended June 30, 2018, the Company's provision for loan and lease losses was $300 thousand, compared to $1.25 million for the March 2018 quarter and $2.20 million for the June 2017 quarter. The Company's provision for loan and lease losses (and its allowance for loan and lease losses) reflect, among other things, the Company's asset quality metrics, net loan growth, net charge-offs, and the composition of the loan portfolio.

At June 30, 2018, the allowance for loan and lease losses of $38.07 million (317 percent of nonperforming loans and 1.02 percent of total loans), compared to $37.70 million at March 31, 2018 (283 percent of nonperforming loans and 1.02 percent of total loans), and $35.75 million (229 percent of nonperforming loans and 0.98 percent of total loans) at June 30, 2017.

Capital / Dividends

The Company's and Bank's capital positions in the June 2018 quarter were benefitted by net income of $11.91 million and $2.39 million of voluntary share purchases under the Dividend Reinvestment Plan. Voluntary share purchases in the Dividend Reinvestment Plan can be filled from the Company's authorized but unissued shares and/or in the open market, at the discretion of the Company – 75,000 of the shares purchased during the June 2018 quarter were from authorized but unissued shares, while 268,349 shares were purchased in the open market.

The Bank's regulatory capital ratios are all well above the ratios to be considered well capitalized under regulatory guidance.

On July 26, 2018, the Company's Board of Directors declared a cash dividend of $0.05 per share payable on August 23, 2018 to shareholders of record on August 9, 2018.

(A) Equity to total assets is calculated as total shareholders' equity as a percentage of total assets at period end.
(B) Tangible equity and tangible assets are calculated by excluding the balance of intangible assets from shareholders' equity and total assets, respectively. Tangible equity as a percentage of tangible assets at period end is calculated by dividing tangible equity by tangible assets at period end.  See Non-GAAP financial measures reconciliation included in these tables.
(C) Book value per common share is calculated by dividing shareholders' equity by period end common shares outstanding.
(D) Tangible book value per share is different than book value per share because it excludes intangible assets.  Tangible book value per share is calculated by dividing tangible equity by period end common shares outstanding.  See Non-GAAP financial measures reconciliation tables.

PEAPACK-GLADSTONE FINANCIAL CORPORATION
NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES RECONCILIATION

Tangible book value per share and tangible equity as a percentage of tangible assets at period end are non-GAAP financial measures derived from GAAP-based amounts.  We calculate tangible equity and tangible assets by excluding the balance of intangible assets from shareholders' equity and total assets, respectively.  We calculate tangible book value per share by dividing tangible equity by period end common shares outstanding, as compared to book value per common share, which we calculate by dividing shareholders' equity by period end common shares outstanding.  We calculate tangible equity as a percentage of tangible assets at period end by dividing tangible equity by tangible assets at period end.  We believe that this is consistent with the treatment by bank regulatory agencies, which exclude intangible assets from the calculation of risk-based capital ratios.

The efficiency ratio is a non-GAAP measure of expense control relative to recurring revenue.  We calculate the efficiency ratio by dividing total noninterest expenses, excluding ORE provision, as determined under GAAP, by net interest income and total noninterest income as determined under GAAP, but excluding net gains/(losses) on loans held for sale at lower of cost or fair value and excluding net gains on securities from this calculation, which we refer to below as recurring revenue.  We believe that this provides one reasonable measure of core expenses relative to core revenue.

We believe that these non-GAAP financial measures provide information that is important to investors and that is useful in understanding our financial position, results and ratios.  Our management internally assesses our performance based, in part, on these measures.  However, these non-GAAP financial measures are supplemental and are not a substitute for an analysis based on GAAP measures.  As other companies may use different calculations for these measures, this presentation may not be comparable to other similarly titles measures reported by other companies.  A reconciliation of the non-GAAP measures of tangible common equity, tangible book value per share and efficiency ratio to the underlying GAAP numbers is set forth below.
