Republic First Bancorp, Inc. Reports Third Quarter Financial Results

PHILADELPHIA, Oct. 27, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Republic First Bancorp, Inc. (NASDAQ: FRBK), the holding company for Republic Bank, today announced its financial results for the period ended September 30, 2021.

Q3-2021 Financial Highlights

  • Net income for the nine-month period ended September 30, 2021 increased to $19.1 million, or $0.25 per diluted share, compared to net income of $1.0 million, or $0.02 per diluted share, for the nine month period ended September 30, 2020.

  • Net income for the quarter ended September 30, 2021 increased to $6.1 million, or $0.08 per diluted share, compared to a net loss of $1.0 million, or $(0.02) per diluted share, for the quarter ended September 30, 2020.

  • The improvement in earnings was driven by the strong growth in revenue while our focus on cost control initiatives continues to limit expense growth. In addition, earnings during 2020 were impacted by a one-time goodwill impairment charge that did not recur in 2021. During the first nine months of 2021 total revenue increased 30% and non-interest expense, excluding the goodwill impairment charge, increased by 9% compared to the first nine months of 2020.

  • Total deposits increased by $1.1 billion, or 27%, to $5.0 billion as of September 30, 2021 compared to $3.9 billion as of September 30, 2020. New stores opened since the beginning of the “Power of Red is Back” expansion campaign are currently growing deposits at an average rate of $42 million per year, while the average deposit growth for all stores over the last twelve months was approximately $33 million per store.

  • We have achieved this significant growth in deposits while driving down the overall cost of funds for the Bank. The cost of funds decreased to 0.36% during the third quarter of 2021 compared to 0.59% in the third quarter of 2020.

  • Excluding the impact of PPP loans, total loans grew $296 million, or 15%, to $2.3 billion as of September 30, 2021 compared to $2.0 billion at September 30, 2020.

  • Asset quality remains strong as the ratio of non-performing assets to total assets declined to 0.25% as of September 30, 2021. No loan customers were deferring loan payments at the end of the third quarter. All customers that were granted deferrals to assist during the height of the COVID pandemic have resumed contractual payments.

Vernon W. Hill, II, Chairman of Republic First Bancorp said:

The Power of Red is Back expansion strategy continues to build momentum and deliver strong results across all fronts at Republic. Earnings have improved significantly over the last twelve months. Deposits continue to grow at rates far above industry standards and loan growth remains robust despite the challenges experienced by most financial institutions across the country as we move forward from the economic impact of the COVID-19 pandemic.”

“As we grow, we remain laser focused on our commitment to deliver the best experience across every channel that our customers have access to….in-store, online, mobile, or by phone. This approach creates FANS throughout our footprint who join our brand, remain loyal and refer their friends which is driving tremendous organic growth quarter after quarter.”

Financial Summary for the Period Ended September 30, 2021

The changes in the balance sheet as of September 30, 2021 were impacted by the effect of the PPP loan program. A portion of the increase in cash balances, outstanding loans, and outside borrowings will be short-term in nature and will change as the borrowers that received PPP loans submit applications for forgiveness to the SBA. A summary of the balance sheet presented with and without the impact of the PPP loan program for the period ended September 30, 2021 can be found in the following table:

Additional Financial Highlights

  • Total assets increased by $447 million, or 9%, to $5.4 billion as of September 30, 2021 compared to $5.0 billion as of September 30, 2020. Excluding the short-term impact of the PPP loan program total assets increased by $882 million, or 21%, year over year.

  • The net interest margin increased by 18 basis points to 2.71% for the nine months ended September 30, 2021 compared to 2.53% for the nine months ended September 30, 2020. This increase was primarily driven by a decline in the cost of funds during the first nine months of 2021.

  • The cost of funds declined to 0.36% for the three-month period ended September 30, 2021 compared to 0.59% for the three month period ended September 30, 2020. This decrease was driven by the lower cost of deposits which has occurred while deposit balances have grown by more than $1.0 billion year over year.

  • We have thirty-two convenient store locations open today. We are currently building a new store location in Ocean City, NJ which we expect to open during the fourth quarter of 2021.

  • Our residential mortgage division, Oak Mortgage, is serving the home financing needs of customers throughout its footprint. The Oak Mortgage team originated more than $713 million in mortgage loans over the last twelve months which continues to be near record highs for the Oak Mortgage Team.

  • Total Risk-Based Capital ratio was 12.53% and Tier I Leverage Ratio was 6.50% at September 30, 2021.

  • Book value per common share increased to $4.67 as of September 30, 2021 compared to $4.33 as of September 30, 2020.

Earnings (Loss) per share$0.08 $0.08 0% $(0.02) 500%

Net income increased to $6.1 million, or $0.08 per share, for the three-month period ended September 30, 2021, compared to a net loss of $1.0 million, or $(0.02) per share, for the three-month period ended September 30, 2020.

We continue to demonstrate progress with operating leverage which drives improved earnings. Total revenue increased by 18% while non-interest expense excluding goodwill impairment increased by 4% during the third quarter of 2021 compared to the third quarter of 2020. Earnings during the prior year were impacted by a goodwill impairment charge in the amount of $5.0 million which did not recur in 2021.

Net interest income increased to $31.4 million during the third quarter of 2021 compared to $22.9 million during the third quarter of 2020. The increase in interest income is attributable to the growth in interest-earning assets over the last twelve months driven by the “Power of Red is Back” expansion strategy. We also continue to amortize the fees associated with the origination of PPP loans which is reported as interest income and is recognized over the life of the loans. Approximately $9 million in origination fees related to the PPP loan program have been deferred as of September 30, 2021 and will be recognized over the remaining life of the loans in future periods.

The net interest margin for the three-month period ended September 30, 2021 increased by 19 basis points to 2.54% compared to 2.35% for the three month period ended September 30, 2020. The net interest margin declined by 10 basis points on a linked quarter basis primarily as a result of higher cash balances held during the third quarter of 2021.

Non-interest income declined to $7.3 million during the quarter ended September 30, 2021, compared to $10.0 million during the quarter ended September 30, 2020. The decrease is primarily attributable to the decrease in mortgage banking income year over year as a result of a decline in residential mortgage loan originations driven by lower refinancing activity in the current year.

Excluding the goodwill impairment charge in 2020, non-interest expense increased by 4%, to $29.8 million during the quarter ended September 30, 2021, compared to $28.6 million during the quarter ended September 30, 2020. The year over year growth was spread across all expense categories driven by the overall growth of the Bank.

A dividend on the outstanding shares of preferred stock in the amount of $0.9 million was declared and paid during the third quarter of 2021. The preferred stock was initially issued in August 2020 and pays a dividend at an annual rate of 7.00%.

Earnings per share$0.25 $0.02  1,150%

Net income increased to $19.1 million, or $0.25 per share, for the nine-month period ended September 30, 2021, compared to net income of $1.0 million, or $0.02 per share, for the nine-month period ended September 30, 2020. Similar to the results for the three-month period ended September 30, 2021, improved operating leverage also drove better earnings during the nine-month period ended September 30, 2021. Total revenue increased by 30% while non-interest expense excluding the goodwill impairment charge increased by 9%, during the first nine months of 2021 compared to the first nine months of 2020.

Net interest income increased to $93.5 million during the nine-month period ended September 30, 2021 compared to $66.1 million during the nine month period ended September 30, 2020. The increase in interest income is attributable to the growth in interest-earning assets over the last twelve months driven by the “Power of Red is Back” expansion strategy. We also continue to amortize the fees associated with the origination of PPP loans which is reported as interest income and is recognized over the life of the loans. The net interest margin for the nine-month period ended September 30, 2021 increased by 18 basis points to 2.71% compared to 2.53% for the nine month period ended September 30, 2020. The improvement in the margin was primarily a result of a decline in the cost of funds to 0.42% during 2021 compared to 0.69% during 2020.

Non-interest income increased by $0.3 million, or 1%, to $25.3 million for the nine-month period ended September 30, 2021, compared to $25.0 million for the nine-month period ended September 30, 2020. Growth in service fees and gains on the sale of SBA loans were offset by decreases in mortgage banking income, gains on the sale of investment securities and other non-interest income.

Excluding goodwill impairment, non-interest expense increased by 9%, to $89.6 million during the nine months ended September 30, 2021, compared to $82.5 million during the nine months ended September 30, 2020. The year over year growth was spread across all expense categories driven by the overall growth of the Bank.

Total deposits$4,972,081 $3,905,606    27% $4,559,868        9%
        

Deposits increased by $1.1 billion, or 27%, to $5.0 billion at September 30, 2021 compared to $3.9 billion at September 30, 2020. This increase can be attributed to our strategy to expand the reach of our banking model which focuses on enhancing the total customer experience including in-store, on-line and mobile banking options. High levels of customer service and convenience across all delivery channels drives the gathering of low-cost, core deposits. We recognized strong growth in demand deposit balances, including an increase in non-interest bearing demand deposits of 28%, year over year as a result of the successful execution of our strategy. The increase in demand deposits over the last twelve months is also a result of our participation in the PPP loan program. Many of the PPP loans originated were for small businesses that were previously not customers of Republic Bank. Many of these small businesses have chosen to move their primary banking relationship to Republic as a result of the outstanding level of service and cooperation they experienced during the PPP loan process. Commercial deposits were 45% of total deposits as of September 30, 2021.

Gross loans decreased by $132 million, or 5%, at September 30, 2021 compared to September 30, 2020. Loans originated through the PPP loan program continue to be repaid or forgiven by the SBA which offsets the growth experienced in other categories in the portfolio. Excluding the impact of the PPP loans, gross loans increased by $296 million, or 15%, to $2.3 billion at September 30, 2021 compared to $2.0 billion at September 30, 2020. We continue to see results from the continued success with our relationship banking model which has driven a steady flow in quality loan demand. We experienced strongest growth in the owner-occupied real estate, commercial real estate and residential mortgage categories over the last twelve months.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

In addition to evaluating the Company’s financial results of operations in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the U.S. (“GAAP”), management periodically supplements its evaluation with an analysis of certain non-GAAP financial measures that are intended to provide the reader with additional perspectives on operating results, financial conditions, and performance trends, while facilitating comparisons with the performance of other financial institutions. Non-GAAP financial measures are not a substitute for GAAP measures, rather, they should be read and used in conjunction with the Company’s GAAP financial information.

The Company believes that disclosing non-GAAP financial measures is both useful internally and is expected by our investors and analysts in order to better understand the overall performance of the Company. Other companies may calculate and define their non-GAAP financial measures and supplemental data differently.
