  • Record net income of $16.2 million and diluted earnings per share of $0.79, representing 34.2% net income growth and 38.6% diluted earnings per share growth from the third quarter of 2019
  • Net charge-offs to average loans of 0.03% (annualized) for the third quarter 2020

  • Declared quarterly dividend of $0.10 per share of common stock

HOUSTON, Oct. 29, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) --  Allegiance Bancshares, Inc. (NASDAQ: ABTX) (Allegiance), the holding company of Allegiance Bank (the "Bank"), today reported net income of $16.2 million and diluted earnings per share of $0.79 for the third quarter 2020 compared to net income of $12.0 million and diluted earnings per share of $0.57 for the third quarter 2019. Net income for the nine months ended September 30, 2020 was $29.6 million, or $1.44 per diluted share, compared to $39.0 million, or $1.81 per diluted share, for the nine months ended September 30, 2019.   The three months ended September 30, 2020 results were primarily due to increased net interest income partially offset by write-downs of other real estate of $1.9 million. The nine months ended September 30, 2020 results were primarily impacted by the increased provision for loan losses in response to COVID-19-related uncertainties in the current economic environment partially offset by increased net interest income.

“Given the continuing economic slowdown and uncertainties due to the pandemic, we are very pleased with our level of loan and deposit production and core earnings that contributed to a record level of net income for the third quarter. Our team continues to work diligently to support our customers and the communities we serve. The experience we have with our long established customer relationships and disciplined underwriting are key strengths that guide and serve us well during this extended period of recovery,” said Steve Retzloff, Allegiance’s Chief Executive Officer. “We further extended our customer outreach during the third quarter as we assessed current conditions and related risks and as we determined appropriate grading of our portfolio and related assessments. These one-on-one discussions and status updates, as well as working with those who requested payment deferrals, give us confidence in the overall quality of our loan portfolio,” commented Retzloff.

“We believe our strong liquidity, solid capital and focus on expense management, as well as the tradition of community banking, experience and continued commitment of the entire Allegiance team, will help ensure that our core business is solid and resilient. We remain focused on achieving our goals as we strategically position Allegiance to provide long-term value to our shareholders, and continue to be a source of strength for our customers, employees and community as we all navigate toward a more normalized economic environment,” concluded Retzloff.

Third Quarter 2020 Results

Net interest income before the provision for loan losses in the third quarter 2020 increased $7.1 million, or 15.8%, to $51.9 million from $44.8 million for the third quarter 2019 and increased $1.1 million, or 2.1%, from $50.8 million in the second quarter 2020. These increases were primarily due to changes in the volume and relative mix of the underlying assets and liabilities, the impact of PPP loans as well as lower costs on interest-bearing liabilities. The net interest margin on a tax equivalent basis decreased 21 basis points to 3.95% for the third quarter 2020 from 4.16% for the third quarter 2019 and decreased 15 basis points from 4.10% for the second quarter 2020. Excluding the impact of acquisition accounting adjustments, adjusted net interest margin on a tax equivalent basis was 3.91% for the third quarter 2020 compared to 3.97% for the third quarter 2019 and 4.05% for the second quarter 2020. Adjusted net interest margin is a non-GAAP measure. Please refer to the non-GAAP reconciliation on page 11.

Noninterest income for the third quarter 2020 was $1.9 million, a decrease of $1.0 million, or 36.0%, compared to $2.9 million for the third quarter 2019 and an increase of $288 thousand, or 18.4%, compared to $1.6 million for the second quarter 2020. Third quarter 2020 noninterest income reflected lower transactional fee income and significantly lower correspondent bank rebates.  

Noninterest expense for the third quarter 2020 increased $2.6 million, or 8.5%, to $32.6 million from $30.0 million for the third quarter 2019 and increased $2.8 million, or 9.4%, compared to the second quarter 2020. Noninterest expense for the third quarter 2020 included $1.9 million of other real estate write-downs.

In the third quarter 2020, Allegiance’s efficiency ratio was 60.58% compared to 56.92% for the second quarter 2020 and 62.88% for the third quarter 2019. Third quarter 2020 annualized returns on average assets, average equity and average tangible equity were 1.09%, 8.59% and 12.72%, respectively, compared to 0.71%, 5.51% and 8.32%, respectively, for the second quarter 2020. Annualized returns on average assets, average equity and average tangible equity for the third quarter 2019 were 0.98%, 6.73% and 10.33%, respectively. Return on average tangible equity is a non-GAAP measure. Please refer to the non-GAAP reconciliation on page 11.

Nine Months Ended September 30, 2020 Results

Net interest income before provision for loan losses for the nine months ended September 30, 2020 increased $12.8 million, or 9.5%, to $147.8 million from $135.0 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2019 primarily due to a $654.4 million, or 15.4%, increase in average interest-earning assets over the prior year, the impact of PPP loans as well as lower costs related to interest-bearing liabilities. The net interest margin on a tax equivalent basis decreased 21 basis points to 4.06% for the nine months ended September 30, 2020 from 4.27% for the nine months ended September 30, 2019. Excluding the impact of acquisition accounting adjustments, the adjusted net interest margin for the nine months ended September 30, 2020 was 3.99%, compared to 4.02% for the nine months ended September 30, 2019. Adjusted net interest margin is a non-GAAP measure. Please refer to the non-GAAP reconciliation on page 11.

Noninterest income for the nine months ended September 30, 2020 was $6.1 million, a decrease of $3.9 million, or 38.8%, compared to $10.0 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2019 due primarily to significantly lower correspondent bank rebates and losses on the sales of other real estate owned of $258 thousand. Additionally, noninterest income for the first nine months of 2020 included $287 thousand of gains on the sale of securities compared to $846 thousand for the first nine months of 2019.

Noninterest expense for the nine months ended September 30, 2020 increased $3.5 million, or 3.9%, to $94.7 million from $91.2 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2019. The increase in noninterest expense during the nine months ended September 30, 2020 was primarily due to $4.1 million of other real estate write-downs partially offset by having no merger-related expenses incurred compared to $1.3 million during the first nine months of 2019.

Allegiance’s efficiency ratio decreased from 63.25% for the nine months ended September 30, 2019 to 61.67% for the nine months ended September 30, 2020. For the nine months ended September 30, 2020, returns on average assets, average equity and average tangible equity were 0.72%, 5.43% and 8.16%, respectively, compared to 1.09%, 7.36% and 11.35%, respectively, for the nine months ended September 30, 2019. Return on average tangible equity is a non-GAAP measure. Please refer to the non-GAAP reconciliation on page 11.

Financial Condition

Total assets at September 30, 2020 increased $130.9 million, or 9.0% (annualized), to $5.97 billion compared to $5.84 billion at June 30, 2020 and increased $1.06 billion, or 21.6%, compared to $4.91 billion at September 30, 2019, primarily due to the origination of PPP loans and growth in the securities portfolio.

Total loans at September 30, 2020 increased $8.7 million, or 0.8% (annualized), to $4.59 billion compared to $4.58 billion at June 30, 2020 and increased $706.4 million, or 18.2%, compared to $3.89 billion at September 30, 2019, primarily due to the origination of $710.2 million of PPP loans. Core loans, which exclude the mortgage warehouse portfolio and PPP loans, decreased $5.8 million, or 0.6% (annualized), to $3.88 billion at September 30, 2020 from $3.89 billion at June 30, 2020 and increased $32.7 million, or 0.8%, from $3.85 billion at September 30, 2019.

Deposits at September 30, 2020 increased $216.7 million, or 18.4% (annualized), to $4.92 billion compared to $4.70 billion at June 30, 2020 and increased $1.02 billion, or 26.2%, compared to $3.90 billion at September 30, 2019.

Asset Quality

Nonperforming assets totaled $46.8 million, or 0.78% of total assets, at September 30, 2020, compared to $45.1 million, or 0.77% of total assets, at June 30, 2020, and $42.9 million, or 0.88% of total assets, at September 30, 2019. The allowance for loan losses was 1.06% of total loans at September 30, 2020, 1.04% of total loans at June 30, 2020 and 0.77% of total loans at September 30, 2019. Accounting Standards Update (ASU) 2016-13, “Financial Instruments – Credit Losses (Topic 326): Measurement of Credit Losses on Financial Instruments” (CECL), became effective for the Company on January 1, 2020. On March 27, 2020, the CARES Act included an option for entities to delay the implementation of CECL until the earlier of the termination date of the national emergency declaration by the President or December 31, 2020. Due to the uncertainty on the economy from COVID-19, the Company chose to delay its implementation of CECL and recorded its provision for loan losses under the incurred loss model that existed prior to CECL.

The provision for loan losses for the third quarter 2020 was $1.3 million, or 0.12% (annualized) of average loans, compared to $10.7 million, or 0.97% (annualized) of average loans, for the second quarter 2020 and $2.6 million, or 0.27% (annualized) of average loans for the third quarter 2019 primarily due to economic risks and uncertainties related to the COVID-19 pandemic. The Company’s increased provision for loan losses of $18.0 million during the nine months ended 2020 compared to the same period in 2019 reflects the uncertainty surrounding unemployment, the economic impact caused by COVID-19 and the economic effects related to the sustained lower crude oil prices.

Third quarter 2020 net charge-offs were $291 thousand, or 0.03% (annualized) of average loans, a decrease from net charge-offs of $538 thousand, or 0.05% (annualized) of average loans, for the second quarter 2020 and $729 thousand, or 0.07% (annualized) of average loans, for the third quarter 2019. Net charge-offs for the nine months ended September 30, 2020 were $3.7 million, or 0.12% (annualized) of average loans, compared to net charge-offs for the nine months ended September 30, 2019 of $1.5 million, or 0.05% (annualized) of average loans.

The Company believes the largest risks within its loan portfolio are in the hotel, restaurant and bar, and oil and gas portfolios. Loan balances in the hotel industry, excluding PPP loans, totaled $133.8 million, or 2.9% of total loans, at September 30, 2020, of which $7.1 million were on nonaccrual. At September 30, 2020, restaurant and bar industry loans, excluding PPP loans, totaled $117.1 million, or 2.6%, of total loans, of which $683 thousand were on nonaccrual. At September 30, 2020, the Company’s allowance for loan losses allocated to its hotel portfolio was 4.0% of total hotel loans and its restaurant and bar portfolio was 1.2% of total restaurant and bar loans. The oil and gas portfolio, excluding PPP loans, totaled $74.0 million, or 1.6%, of total loans at September 30, 2020, of which $592 thousand were on nonaccrual. At September 30, 2020, the allowance for loan losses allocated to the oil and gas loan portfolio was 2.0% of total oil and gas loans.

During the nine months ended September 30, 2020, the Company granted 2,007 initial principal and interest deferrals on outstanding loan balances of $1.15 billion at September 30, 2020 with associated accrued interest of $16.1 million to borrowers in connection with the COVID-19 relief provided by the CARES Act. Of the initial deferrals, 242 loans with outstanding loan balances of $219.6 million had been granted additional deferrals upon request and after meeting certain conditions with associated accrued interest of $3.4 million as of September 30, 2020. These deferrals were generally no more than 90 days in duration. As of September 30, 2020, 286 loans with outstanding loan balances of $237.0 million remained on deferral.

Dividend

On October 22, 2020, the Board of Directors of Allegiance declared a cash dividend of $0.10 per share to be paid on December 15, 2020 to all shareholders of record as of November 30, 2020.

GAAP Reconciliation and Management’s Explanation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures
(Unaudited)

Allegiance’s management uses certain non-GAAP (generally accepted accounting principles) financial measures to evaluate its performance. Allegiance believes that these non-GAAP financial measures provide meaningful supplemental information regarding its performance and that management and investors benefit from referring to these non-GAAP financial measures in assessing Allegiance’s performance and when planning, forecasting, analyzing and comparing past, present and future periods. Specifically, Allegiance reviews tangible book value per share, return on average tangible equity, the ratio of tangible equity to tangible assets and adjusted net interest margin on a tax equivalent basis for internal planning and forecasting purposes. Allegiance has included in this Earnings Release information relating to these non-GAAP financial measures for the applicable periods presented. These non-GAAP measures should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for the most directly comparable or other financial measures calculated in accordance with GAAP. Moreover, the manner in which Allegiance calculates the non-GAAP financial measures may differ from that of other companies reporting measures with similar names.
