TriState Capital Holdings, Inc. (NASDAQ:TSC) reported first quarter 2020 financial results, including record levels of liquidity, strong credit quality metrics, double-digit loan growth, and all-time-high quarterly net interest income and revenue.

The parent company of TriState Capital Bank and Chartwell Investment Partners reported net income available to common shareholders of $10.9 million, or $0.38 per fully diluted share, in the first quarter of 2020, compared to $13.9 million, or $0.48, in the first quarter of 2019 and $12.6 million, or $0.44, in the fourth quarter of 2019.

"With well over $1 billion in liquidity, superior asset quality metrics, record revenues, and profitable growth in a balance sheet approaching $9 billion, TriState Capital is very well positioned to help our private banking, commercial banking and investment management clients through the historic challenges facing our nation," Chairman and Chief Executive Officer James F. Getz said. "We are inspired by our team of amazing professionals and how they have remained fully engaged with all of our clients, maintaining uninterrupted and premier levels of service. Our infrastructure and systems have all functioned as designed in these times of unprecedented volatility. And, we continue our work to profitably grow this company to meet and exceed the expectations of those we serve."

FIRST QUARTER 2020 HIGHLIGHTS

  • TriState Capital's private banking loan portfolio, primarily collateralized by marketable securities, which are monitored daily, liquid and subject to favorable treatment under regulatory capital requirements, represented 56.3% of total loans at period end.
  • Non-performing loans (NPLs) and adverse-rated credits represented 0.00% and 0.50% of total loans, respectively, while the allowance for loan and lease losses (ALLL) was 0.25% of total loans and 9,404% of NPLs, at period end.
  • Loan growth during the quarter included private banking up 6.0%, commercial and industrial (C&I) up 9.7%, and commercial real estate (CRE) up 3.1%.
  • Total loans grew organically to $6.96 billion at period end, up 30.4% from March 31, 2019 and 5.8% during the quarter.
  • Deposits grew organically to $7.78 billion at period end, up 45.8% from March 31, 2019 and 17.3% during the quarter, lowering the loan-to-deposit ratio to 89.4%.
  • Record level of liquidity included $1.01 billion in cash and equivalents, as well as $606.7 million in securities at period end.
  • Liability and asset pricing management supported record net interest income (NII) and stable net interest margin (NIM).
  • Chartwell's fixed income and equity strategies drew positive net inflows of $57.0 million during the quarter, and it has in excess of $200 million in commitments in its new business pipeline.

TriState Capital's NIM was 1.84% for both the first quarter of 2020 and the fourth quarter of 2019, compared to 2.10% in the first quarter of 2019. NII grew to a record $34.9 million in the first quarter of 2020, increasing 15.0% from $30.4 million in the year-ago quarter and 5.6% from $33.1 million in the fourth quarter of 2019. Double-digit annual NII growth continued even as the company grew deposits at a faster rate than loans and managed balance sheet risk through the growth of private banking loans backed by marketable securities.

Total non-interest income was $13.3 million in the first quarter of 2020, compared to $13.1 million in the prior year quarter and $13.5 million in the linked quarter.

TriState Capital's non-interest income is largely made up of Chartwell investment management fees, which were $7.6 million in the first quarter of 2020, reflecting market volatility in March that offset positive net inflows of client assets in the quarter. Investment management fees were $9.4 million in the prior year quarter and $8.9 million in the linked quarter.

Fees from the bank's back-to-back, loan-level interest rate swap offering for clients totaled a record $4.4 million in the first quarter of 2020, compared to $1.8 million in the prior year quarter and $3.4 million in the linked quarter.

NII and non-interest income, excluding net gains on the sale of debt securities, combined to grow total revenue to a record $48.2 million for the first quarter of 2020, up 11.0% from $43.4 million in the year-ago period and up 3.6% from $46.5 million in the linked quarter. Total revenue, which is not a financial metric under generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP), is a measure that TriState Capital has consistently utilized to provide a greater understanding of its significant fee-generating businesses. Non-interest income represented 27.5% of total revenue in the first quarter of 2020 when excluding net gains on the sale of securities.

The company's investments in talent, client experience and building operating scale continue to drive annual revenue growth and product innovation, while achieving incremental operating leverage. TriState Capital Bank's efficiency ratio for the first quarter of 2020 was 51.86%, improving from 56.30% in the first quarter of 2019 and 56.03% in the linked quarter. The efficiency ratio, which is a non-GAAP financial metric, is a measure utilized to provide a greater understanding of a bank's level of non-interest expense as a percentage of total revenue.

First quarter 2020 non-interest expense totaled $29.1 million, increasing 9.3% from $26.7 million in the year-ago period and decreasing 3.2% from $30.1 million in the fourth quarter of 2019. TriState Capital also continued to lower non-interest expense as a percentage of average assets to 1.47% in the first quarter of 2020, down from 1.77% in the first quarter of 2019 and 1.60% in the linked quarter.

Pre-tax, pre-provision net revenue (PTPPNR) grew to a record $19.0 million in the first quarter of 2020, increasing 13.7% from $16.7 million in the year-ago period and 16.3% from $16.4 million in the linked quarter. PTPPNR, which is a non-GAAP financial metric, is a measure utilized to provide a greater understanding of a bank's pre-tax profitability before giving effect to provision and securities gains and losses.

Pre-tax income was $16.1 million in the first quarter of 2020, decreasing 6.1% from $17.1 million in the first quarter of 2019 and increasing 2.5% from $15.7 million in the linked quarter.

TriState Capital's effective tax rate was 19.9% for the first quarter of 2020. The company's effective tax rate is impacted by certain factors including the number, timing and size of tax credit investments, as well as the proportion of consolidated earnings attributed to investment management.

Net income available to common shareholders and earnings per share in the first quarter of 2020 reflected $2.0 million payable for the company's quarterly cash dividends on Series A and Series B Non-Cumulative Perpetual Preferred Stock.

ORGANIC LOAN GROWTH

TriState Capital continued to show strong organic growth on both sides of its balance sheet, expanding the number and depth of its relationships with high-quality middle-market commercial customers, as well as the high-net-worth clients the bank serves through its national referral network of investment advisors and other financial intermediaries.

Average loans totaled a record $6.67 billion in the first quarter of 2020, growing 28.9% from $5.18 billion in the prior year period and 6.8% from $6.25 billion in the linked quarter. Loans at March 31, 2020 totaled $6.96 billion, growing $1.62 billion, or 30.4%, from March 31, 2019, and $380.6 million, or 5.8%, from December 31, 2019.

TriState Capital's premier distribution and client-engagement capabilities helped drive new loan originations in its private banking business in the first quarter of 2020, as the company fortified its position as the nation's leading provider of marketable securities-backed loans through independent investment advisory and other financial services firms. Private banking loans totaled $3.92 billion at March 31, 2020, increasing $933.6 million, or 31.3%, from one year prior and $220.2 million, or 6.0%, from the end of the linked quarter.

The company continued to grow relationships with middle-market enterprises in the first quarter of 2020 to drive originations of C&I and CRE loans. Commercial loans totaled $3.04 billion at March 31, 2020, increasing $687.8 million, or 29.2%, from one year prior and $160.4 million, or 5.6%, from the end of the linked quarter.

C&I loans grew to $1.19 billion at March 31, 2020, increasing $328.7 million, or 38.1%, from one year prior and $105.4 million, or 9.7%, from the end of the linked quarter. Less than a third of C&I loan growth in the first quarter of 2020 was attributable to net increased utilization of revolving credit lines.

CRE loans grew to $1.85 billion at March 31, 2020, increasing $359.1 million, or 24.1%, from one year prior and $55.0 million, or 3.1%, from the end of the linked quarter. CRE loans represented 26.6% of total period-end loans.

DEPOSIT FRANCHISE EXPANSION

TriState Capital continues to support private banking and commercial loan growth with the organic, strategic expansion of its deposit franchise. The bank's national treasury management and liquidity management offerings are increasing the number and depth of depositor relationships with financial services businesses, high-net-worth individuals, family offices, middle market companies, professional service firms, specialized payment and transaction processors, municipalities and non-profits.

In March, TriState Capital further accelerated deposit-gathering activities to build record levels of liquidity in anticipation of clients' credit needs during the public health and economic crisis resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic, accepting the carrying costs associated with this over-funding in the short term.

Average deposits totaled a record $6.76 billion in the first quarter of 2020, growing 34.1% from $5.04 billion in the same period last year and 8.7% from $6.21 billion in the linked quarter. Deposits at March 31, 2020 totaled $7.78 billion, growing $2.45 billion, or 45.8%, from March 31, 2019, and $1.15 billion, or 17.3%, from December 31, 2019.

Treasury management deposit accounts totaled $1.11 billion at March 31, 2020, increasing $317.8 million, or 40.2%, from March 31, 2019, and $33.0 million, or 3.1%, from December 31, 2019.

The bank's loan-to-deposit ratio at March 31, 2020 was 89.4%, down from 100.0% at March 31, 2019 and 99.1% at December 31, 2019.

INTEREST RATE MANAGEMENT

TriState Capital continues to maintain a balance sheet with significant flexibility to manage interest rate risk in changing markets.

TriState Capital's stable first-quarter NIM reflected a liability repricing program completed in March 2020 for virtually all non-fixed-rate balances, representing a majority of total deposits. Most of TriState Capital's non-fixed rate deposits are linked to the Effective Fed Funds Rate, and the balance are priced at rates set with bank discretion.

Interest rate floors are now in place for the majority of the bank's loans, effective with 30-day LIBOR below 1%. At March 31, 2020, 93% of the company's loans were floating rate and indexed to 30-day LIBOR, the Prime Rate or the Effective Fed Funds Rate.

Total cost of funds for all deposits and interest-bearing liabilities averaged 1.64% during the first quarter of 2020, compared to 2.38% in the same period last year and 1.93% in the linked quarter. The total cost of deposits averaged 1.62% during the first quarter of 2020, compared to 2.36% in the same period last year and 1.92% in the linked quarter.

The yield on total loans averaged 3.55% during the first quarter of 2020, compared to 4.49% in the prior year period and 3.81% in the linked quarter. Yields reflect trends in 30-day LIBOR during the first quarter of 2020, the proportion of the portfolio dedicated to private banking non-purpose margin loans secured by marketable securities, an overall focus on variable rate pricing and asset quality.

INVESTMENT MANAGEMENT

Strong investment performance across Chartwell's active equity and fixed income strategies contributed to net inflows of $57.0 million during the first quarter of 2020, and by mid-April it had in excess of $200 million in commitments from institutional investors in its new business pipeline.

Chartwell's new business and new flows from existing accounts of $385 million was offset by outflows of $328 million and market depreciation of $1.44 billion in the first quarter of 2020. Chartwell's assets under management were $8.32 billion at March 31, 2020, $9.73 billion at March 31, 2019 and $9.70 billion at December 31, 2019.

Chartwell's weighted average fee rate was 0.34% at March 31, 2020. Investment management fee revenue was $7.6 million in the first quarter of 2020, compared to $9.4 million in the first quarter of 2019 and $8.9 million in the fourth quarter of 2019.

Initiatives to enhance Chartwell segment profitability continue to take effect, as non-interest expense improved to $7.1 million in the first quarter of 2020 from $7.6 million in the first quarter of 2019 and $8.9 million in the fourth quarter of 2019.

ASSET QUALITY

TriState Capital's first quarter 2020 results, including provision expense and reserves, reflect continued application of the incurred loss method for estimating credit losses. The company has elected to delay implementation of the current expected credit losses (CECL) accounting standard, in accordance with relief provided to financial institutions under the U.S. Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act. Continued application of the incurred loss method in the first quarter of 2020 resulted in provision expense and reserve levels that were not substantially different than what would have been recognized under CECL.

TriState Capital maintained strong asset quality metrics in the first quarter of 2020, reflecting the company's disciplined credit culture and the expansion of its private banking non-purpose margin loans secured by marketable securities. Private banking loans comprised 56.3% of the total loan portfolio at March 31, 2020, while CRE and C&I comprised 26.6% and 17.1% of total loans, respectively.

Non-performing assets (NPAs) were $4.4 million, or 0.05% of total assets, at March 31, 2020, compared to $10.5 million, or 0.16%, at March 31, 2019 and $4.4 million, or 0.06%, at December 31, 2019.

Non-performing loans (NPLs) were $184,000, or 0.0% of total loans, at March 31, 2020, compared to $7.3 million, or 0.14%, at March 31, 2019 and $184,000, or 0.00%, at December 31, 2019.

Adverse-rated credits were $34.6 million, or 0.50% of total loans, at March 31, 2020, compared to $29.1 million, or 0.55%, at March 31, 2019 and $35.0 million, or 0.53%, at December 31, 2019.

Net recoveries were $203,000 in the first quarter of 2020, $1.9 million in the year-ago quarter and $6,000 in the linked quarter. TriState Capital recorded provision expense of $3.0 million in the first quarter of 2020 and $728,000 in the linked quarter. A credit to provision of $377,000 was recorded in the first quarter of 2019.

ALLL increased by 22.7% in the first quarter of 2020, reflecting management's assessment of general economic conditions. ALLL was $17.3 million, or 0.25% of total loans, at March 31, 2020, compared to $14.7 million, or 0.28%, at March 31, 2019 and $14.1 million, or 0.21%, at December 31, 2019. ALLL represented 9,404% of NPLs at March 31, 2020.

CAPITAL STRENGTH AND FLEXIBILITY

The company's regulatory capital levels benefited from retained earnings growth. As of March 31, 2020, estimated regulatory capital ratios for TriState Capital Holdings were 11.42% for total risk-based capital, 11.07% for tier 1 risk-based capital, 8.81% for common equity tier 1 risk-based capital, and 7.19% for tier 1 leverage. For TriState Capital Bank, the estimated capital ratios were 11.69% for total risk-based capital, 11.34% for tier 1 risk-based capital, 11.34% for common equity tier 1 risk-based capital, and 7.36% for tier 1 leverage.

During the three months ended March 31, 2020, the company repurchased a total of 30,000 shares of its common stock for approximately $520,000 at an average cost of $17.33 per share. Since the company's Board of Directors first authorized share buybacks in October 2014, the company has repurchased a total of 2.1 million shares for approximately $32.8 million at an average cost of $15.39 per share. TriState Capital had $9.9 million of repurchase authority available at March 31, 2020, under previously disclosed buyback programs authorized by its Board of Directors.

NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES

The information set forth above contains certain financial information determined by methods other than in accordance with GAAP. These non-GAAP financial measures are "tangible common equity," "tangible book value per common share," "EBITDA," "total revenue," "pre-tax, pre-provision net revenue" and "efficiency ratio." Although we believe these non-GAAP financial measures provide management and our investors with a more detailed understanding of our performance, these measures are not necessarily comparable to similar measures that may be presented by other companies. The non-GAAP financial measures presented herein are calculated as follows:

"Tangible common equity" is defined as common shareholders' equity reduced by intangible assets, including goodwill. We believe this measure is important to management and investors so that they can better understand and assess changes from period to period in common shareholders' equity exclusive of changes in intangible assets associated with prior acquisitions. Intangible assets are created when we buy businesses that add relationships and revenue to our Company. Intangible assets have the effect of increasing both equity and assets, while not increasing our tangible equity or tangible assets.

"Tangible book value per common share" is defined as common shareholders' equity reduced by intangible assets, including goodwill, divided by common shares outstanding. We believe this measure is important to many investors who are interested in changes from period to period in book value per common share exclusive of changes in intangible assets associated with prior acquisitions.

"EBITDA" is defined as net income before interest expense, income tax expense, depreciation expense and intangible amortization expense. We use EBITDA particularly to assess the strength of our investment management business. We believe this measure is important because it allows management and investors to better assess our investment management performance in relation to our core operating earnings by excluding certain non-cash items and the volatility that is associated with certain discrete items that are unrelated to our core business.

"Total revenue" is defined as net interest income and non-interest income, excluding gains and losses on the sale and call of debt securities. We believe adjustments made to our operating revenue allow management and investors to better assess our core operating revenue by removing the volatility that is associated with certain items that are unrelated to our core business.

"Pre-tax, pre-provision net revenue" is defined as net income, without giving effect to loan loss provision and income taxes, and excluding gains and losses on the sale and call of investment securities. We believe this measure is important because it allows management and investors to better assess our performance in relation to our core operating revenue, excluding the volatility that is associated with provision for loan and lease losses and changes in our tax rates and other items that are unrelated to our core business.

"Efficiency ratio" is defined as total non-interest expense divided by our total revenue. We believe this measure allows management and investors to better assess our operating expenses in relation to our core operating revenue, particularly at the Bank.
