 FIRST QUARTER HIGHLIGHTS

  • Total loans increased for the quarter by $458.7 million, or 3.0%, to $15.5 billion from $15.1 billion in 2019.
  • Total deposits increased for the quarter by $397.8 million, or 2.7%, to $15.1 billion from $14.7 billion in 2019.

"For the first quarter of 2020, our total loans increased $458.7 million, or 12.2% annualized, to $15.5 billion due in part to higher drawdowns by our commercial loan borrowers.  We repurchased 400,000 shares of our common stock at an average cost of $32.20 and do not plan to buy back additional stock until further notice. We are prepared to operate during these challenging times to serve the financial needs of our customers," commented Pin Tai, Chief Executive Officer of the Company.

FIRST QUARTER INCOME STATEMENT REVIEW

Net income for the quarter ended March 31, 2020, was $46.9 million, a decrease of $19.8 million, or 29.7%, compared to net income of $66.7 million for the same quarter a year ago.  Diluted earnings per share for the quarter ended March 31, 2020, was $0.59 per share compared to $0.83 per share for the same quarter a year ago.

Return on average stockholders' equity was 8.12% and return on average assets was 1.05% for the quarter ended March 31, 2020, compared to a return on average stockholders' equity of 12.57% and a return on average assets of 1.61% for the same quarter a year ago.

Net interest income before provision for credit losses

Net interest income before provision for credit losses decreased $3.0 million, or 2.1%, to $140.3 million during the first quarter of 2020, compared to $143.3 million during the same quarter a year ago.  The decrease was due primarily to an increase in interest expense from time deposits, and a decrease in interest income from loans and securities.

The net interest margin was 3.34% for the first quarter of 2020 compared to 3.70% for the first quarter of 2019 and 3.34% for the fourth quarter of 2019.

For the first quarter of 2020, the yield on average interest-earning assets was 4.44%, the cost of funds on average interest-bearing liabilities was 1.49%, and the cost of interest-bearing deposits was 1.44%.  In comparison, for the first quarter of 2019, the yield on average interest-earning assets was 4.85%, the cost of funds on average interest-bearing liabilities was 1.55%, and the cost of interest-bearing deposits was 1.46%. The decrease in the yield on average interest-earning assets resulted mainly from lower rates on loans.  The net interest spread, defined as the difference between the yield on average interest-earning assets and the cost of funds on average interest-bearing liabilities, was 2.95% for the quarter ended March 31, 2020, compared to 3.30% for the same quarter a year ago.

Provision for credit losses

Based on a review of the appropriateness of the allowance for loan losses at March 31, 2020, the Company recorded a provision for credit losses of $25.0 million in first quarter of 2020 compared to no provision for credit losses in the first quarter of 2019.  The provision for credit losses is primarily a result of the economic deterioration of the global economy resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic.  The Company will continue to monitor the continuing impact of the pandemic on credit risks and losses, as well as on customer demand, deposits and other bank liabilities and assets.  As permitted under the recently enacted Coronavirus, Aid, Relief and Economic Security Act (the "CARES Act"), the Company has chosen to defer the adoption of the Current Expected Credit Losses (CECL) methodology for estimated credit losses until the earlier of the date the US government declares an end to the national emergency or December 31, 2020. The expected impact of CECL on first quarter results, if CECL had been adopted, will be disclosed in our Form 10-Q for the first quarter of 2020.  The following table sets forth the charge-offs and recoveries for the periods indicated:

Non-interest income

Non-interest income, which includes revenues from depository service fees, letters of credit commissions, securities gains (losses), wire transfer fees, and other sources of fee income, was $5.8 million for the first quarter of 2020, a decrease of $7.1 million, or 55.0%, compared to $12.9 million for the first quarter of 2019.  The decrease was primarily due to a $10.3 million decrease in net losses from equity securities, offset in part by a $1.4 million increase in wealth management fees and an increase of $1.3 million in the valuation of interest rate swap contracts, when compared to the same quarter a year ago.

Non-interest expense

Non-interest expense decreased $5.8 million, or 8.2%, to $65.2 million in the first quarter of 2020 compared to $71.0 million in the same quarter a year ago.  The decrease in non-interest expense in the first quarter of 2020 was primarily due to a $4.5 million gain recognized on sale of a foreclosed property, a decrease of $1.2 million in salaries and employee benefits and a decrease of $2.4 million in provision for unfunded commitments, offset by an increase of $3.1 million in amortization expense of investments in low income housing and alternative energy partnerships when compared to the same quarter a year ago.  The efficiency ratio was 44.6% in the first quarter of 2020 compared to 45.4% for the same quarter a year ago.

Income taxes

The effective tax rate for the first quarter of 2020 was 16.3% compared to 21.8% for the first quarter of 2019. The effective tax rate includes an alternative energy investment made in the second quarter of 2019 and the impact of low-income housing tax credits.

BALANCE SHEET REVIEW

Gross loans were $15.5 billion at March 31, 2020, an increase of $458.7 million, or 3.0%, from $15.1 billion at December 31, 2019.  The increase was primarily due to increases of $194.3 million, or 7.0%, in commercial loans, $147.3 million, or 2.0%, in commercial mortgage loans, $85.3 million, or 2.1%, in residential mortgage loans, and $37.3 million, or 10.7%, in equity lines.  The loan balances and composition at March 31, 2020, compared to December 31, 2019 and March 31, 2019, are presented below:

ASSET QUALITY REVIEW

At March 31, 2020, total non-accrual loans were $53.7 million, an increase of $13.2 million, or 32.6%, from $40.5 million at December 31, 2019, and a decrease of $3.0 million, or 5.3%, from $56.7 million at March 31, 2019.

The allowance for loan losses was $148.3 million and the allowance for off-balance sheet unfunded credit commitments was $3.0 million at March 31, 2020, which represented the amount believed by management to be appropriate to absorb credit losses inherent in the loan portfolio, including unfunded credit commitments.  The $148.3 million allowance for loan losses at March 31, 2020, increased $25.1 million, or 20.4%, from $123.2 million at December 31, 2019.  This increase included $22.0 million of additional allowance for loan losses due to deterioration in economic conditions in the closing weeks of the quarter related to COVID-19.  This deterioration is reflected in unprecedented increases in new unemployment claims in the United States and deterioration in global economic measures during this period.  The allowance for loan losses represented 0.95% of period-end gross loans, and 254.5% of non-performing loans at March 31, 2020.  The comparable ratios were 0.82% of period-end gross loans, and 262.6% of non-performing loans at December 31, 2019.  The changes in non-performing assets and troubled debt restructurings at March 31, 2020, compared to December 31, 2019 and March 31, 2019, are shown below:
