Hope Bancorp Reports 2021 First Quarter Financial Results

Hope Bancorp, Inc. (the “Company”) (NASDAQ: HOPE), the holding company of Bank of Hope (the “Bank”), today reported unaudited financial results for its first quarter ended March 31, 2021.

For the three months ended March 31, 2021, net income totaled $43.7 million, or $0.35 per diluted common share, representing an increase of 54% from $28.3 million, or $0.23 per diluted common share in the fourth quarter of 2020 and an increase of 68% from $26.0 million, or $0.21 per diluted common share, in the year-ago first quarter.

“First quarter results were solid, reflecting the continued benefits of the operational improvements that we implemented in 2020,” said Kevin S. Kim, Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer of Hope Bancorp, Inc. “We continued to support our customers in this pandemic-challenged business environment by providing $305 million in the second round of PPP funding, which contributed to new loan originations totaling $847 million in the first quarter. Noninterest bearing deposits increased 13% from year-end and accounted for a record high 38% of total deposits at March 31, 2021. This contributed to a sixth consecutive quarter of declining cost of deposits, which supported another quarter of net interest margin expansion for the Company. Additionally, we continued to proactively manage our expenses which resulted in noninterest expense to average assets improving to 1.65% from 1.69% in the preceding quarter.

“During the first quarter, we saw an expected increase in our criticized assets due to the impact COVID-19 has had on the travel industry, but remain well reserved given the considerable build up of our allowance for credit losses last year in anticipation of the eventual migration of these credits in the normal course of the credit administration process. We are, however, pleased to see the continued improvements in the economy, which supported a significantly lower provision expense this quarter and contributed to a 54% increase in net income quarter-over-quarter. With the vaccination campaign in the U.S. well underway and the COVID-related restrictions gradually being lifted, we have greater confidence in our ability to deliver enhanced performance as the year proceeds.”

Q1 2021 Highlights

  • Net interest income before provision for credit losses increased 2% quarter-over-quarter to $122.6 million, benefiting from reduced interest expense due to lower cost of deposits.
  • Net interest margin expanded 4 basis points quarter-over-quarter.
  • Noninterest bearing demand deposits increased 13% quarter-over-quarter and increased as a percentage of total deposits to 38% from 34% at year-end 2020.
  • Cost of interest bearing deposits decreased 15 basis points and total cost of deposits decreased 12 basis points quarter-over-quarter continuing a six-quarter trend of declining deposit costs.
  • Loan originations totaled $847.1 million, including a second round of PPP fundings of $304.7 million, and contributed to a 1.0% increase in loans receivable quarter-over-quarter, or 4.1% annualized.
  • Efficiency ratio improved to 53.61% from 53.77% quarter-over-quarter and noninterest expense to average assets improved to 1.65% from 1.69%.
  • Net income increased 54% quarter-over-quarter and totaled $43.7 million, or $0.35 per diluted common share.

Operating Results for the 2021 First Quarter

Net interest income before provision for credit losses for the 2021 first quarter increased 2% to $122.6 million from $120.8 million in the 2020 fourth quarter and increased 3% from $119.3 million in the 2020 first quarter. The Company attributed the increase in net interest income primarily to meaningful reductions in interest expense due to lower trending cost of deposits.

The net interest margin for the 2021 first quarter increased 4 basis points to 3.06% from 3.02% in the preceding 2020 fourth quarter, reflecting the benefits of lower deposit costs, partially offset by lower weighted average yield on loans. The net interest margin in the prior-year first quarter was 3.31%.

The weighted average yield on loans for the 2021 first quarter was 3.94%, compared with 4.03% in the preceding fourth quarter and 5.06% in the year-ago first quarter.

The weighted average cost of deposits for the 2021 first quarter decreased for the sixth consecutive quarter to 0.36%, representing a 12 basis point decrease from 0.48% for the 2020 fourth quarter and a 98 basis point decrease from 1.34% for the 2020 first quarter. The Company attributed the significant improvements in the weighted average cost of deposits to a continuing shift in its deposit mix to lower-cost core deposits and the ongoing downward repricing of interest bearing deposits. The cost of interest bearing deposits was 0.56%, 0.71% and 1.76% at March 31, 2021, December 31, 2020 and March 31, 2020, respectively.

Noninterest income totaled $8.8 million for the 2021 first quarter, compared with $11.4 million in the preceding fourth quarter. The largest factors contributing to the decrease included a $1.5 million decline in quarter-over-quarter swap fee income and a $1.2 million reduction in deposit service fees which was largely attributable to the Company’s exiting certain money service business accounts. These decreases were partially offset by increases in loan servicing fees and gain on sales of residential mortgage loans. Noninterest income in the year-ago first quarter totaled $13.3 million.

Noninterest expense for the 2021 first quarter decreased to $70.4 million from $71.1 million in the preceding fourth quarter and $72.1 million in the year-ago first quarter.

Salaries and employee benefits expense for the 2021 first quarter increased 1% to $41.2 million from $40.9 million in the preceding fourth quarter and included higher payroll taxes and 401k contributions partially offset by an increase in loan origination costs of $1.4 million related to the second round of PPP funding. On a year-over-year basis, salaries and employee benefits expense decreased 3% from $42.5 million in the 2020 first quarter.

The Company’s efficiency ratio for the 2021 first quarter improved to 53.61% from 53.77% for the preceding fourth quarter and from 54.42% for the year-ago first quarter. Noninterest expense as a percentage of average assets improved to 1.65% for the 2021 first quarter from 1.69% for the 2020 fourth quarter and from 1.87% for the 2020 first quarter.

The effective tax rate for the 2021 first quarter was 24.2%, compared with 15.7% for the preceding fourth quarter and 19.9% in the year-ago first quarter. The Company noted that its effective tax rate for 2020 fourth quarter reflected a lower tax provision based on adjustments to applicable state apportionment factors.

Balance Sheet Summary

New loan originations funded during the 2021 first quarter totaled $847.1 million and included second round PPP funding of $304.7 million, traditional SBA loan production of $36.8 million and residential mortgage loan originations of $69.8 million. For the preceding 2020 fourth quarter, new loan originations funded totaled $844.2 million, including SBA loan production of $25.5 million, residential mortgage loan originations of $62.5 million and fundings related to two new warehouse mortgage lines of credit of $106.8 million. In the year-ago first quarter, new loan originations funded totaled $624.5 million, including SBA loan production of $49.8 million and residential mortgage loan originations of $37.4 million. There were no new warehouse mortgage lines of credit established in the 2021 and 2020 first quarters.

At March 31, 2021, loans receivable increased 1% to $13.70 billion from $13.56 billion at December 31, 2020 and increased 9% from $12.58 billion at March 31, 2020.

Reflecting a continuing positive shift in the mix of deposits, noninterest bearing demand deposits increased 13% quarter-over-quarter and increased 80% year-over-year and accounted for 38%, 34% and 24% of total deposits at March 31, 2021, December 31, 2020 and March 31, 2020, respectively.

Allowance for Credit Losses

The 2021 first quarter provision for credit losses under the CECL methodology was $3.3 million, compared with $27.5 million for the preceding fourth quarter and $28.0 million for the 2020 first quarter. The provision for credit losses for the 2021 first quarter reflects updated macroeconomic variables incorporating the Moody’s Analytics Consensus scenario that continue to show improving trends that support a strong economic recovery and taking into account the Company’s significant buildup in reserves in prior periods in consideration of the pandemic’s expected impact on its loan portfolio, as well as its low level of credit losses.

The $24.6 million increase in loans on nonaccrual status largely reflects the addition of a $23.5 million retail commercial real estate loan. The Company noted that this was a unique situation due to the borrower’s involvement in a legal dispute and not reflective of any systemic deterioration for these property types.

The increase in criticized loans quarter-over-quarter primarily reflects downgrades in the Company’s hotel/motel portfolio to the Special Mention category. The Company noted that the performance of these loans was consistent with expectations when reserves were increased in 2020 and that no new issues for these borrowers have emerged.

Net charge offs in the 2021 first quarter totaled $2.1 million, or 0.06% of average loans receivable on an annualized basis. This compares with net charge offs of $608,000, or 0.02% of average loans receivable on an annualized basis for the 2020 fourth quarter and $3.4 million, or 0.11% of average loans receivable on an annualized basis for the 2020 first quarter.
