Pending Merger

On November 8, 2021, Allegiance Bancshares, Inc., or Allegiance, and the Company jointly announced that they entered into a definitive merger agreement pursuant to which the companies will combine in an all-stock merger of equals. Under the terms of the definitive merger agreement, Allegiance shareholders will receive 1.4184 shares of the Company’s common stock for each share of Allegiance common stock they own. Based on the number of outstanding shares of Allegiance and the Company as of November 5, 2021, Allegiance shareholders will own approximately 54% and the Company’s shareholders will own approximately 46% of the combined company. The companies have submitted the required regulatory filings and subject to satisfaction of the closing conditions, including approval of the merger agreement by both companies’ shareholders, the parties anticipate closing in the second quarter of 2022. Each company has scheduled a special meeting for May 24, 2022 at which its respective shareholders will consider and vote on the merger agreement and other related matters.

Operating Results

The Company reported net income of $10.6 million for the first quarter of 2022, or $0.43 per diluted share, compared to a net loss of $545,000, or $0.02 per diluted share, for the fourth quarter of 2021 and net income of $10.0 million, or $0.41 per diluted share, for the first quarter of 2021.

The increase of $11.1 million in net income for the first quarter of 2022, compared to the fourth quarter of 2021, was primarily due to a $10.2 million decrease in noninterest expense due to the payment of $8.0 million of civil money penalties to resolve Bank Secrecy Act, or BSA, and anti-money laundering, or AML, compliance matters during the fourth quarter of 2021, a $1.8 million increase in net interest income and a $1.2 million increase in noninterest income. In addition, net income for the first quarter of 2022, compared to the fourth quarter of 2021 was $1.6 million lower as the fourth quarter 2021 provision for credit losses was a recapture of $1.2 million and the first quarter of 2022 provision for credit losses was a provision of $435,000.

The increase of $576,000 in net income for the first quarter of 2022, compared to the first quarter of 2021, was primarily due to a $2.2 million increase in noninterest income, partially offset by a $1.4 million increase in noninterest expense and a $460,000 decrease in net interest income.

Net Interest Income

Net interest income was $32.6 million for the first quarter of 2022, compared to $30.8 million for the fourth quarter of 2021 and $33.1 million for the first quarter of 2021. Net interest income increased $1.8 million during the first quarter of 2022, compared to the fourth quarter of 2021, primarily due to higher average loans and securities, which was partially offset by the impact of an additional calendar day in the fourth quarter of 2021. Net interest income decreased $460,000 during the first quarter of 2022, compared to the first quarter of 2021, primarily due to lower rates on loans and lower average loans during the three months ended March 31, 2022, partially offset by higher average securities and lower rates on deposits.

The yield on interest-earning assets was 3.31% for the first quarter of 2022, compared to 3.16% for the fourth quarter of 2021 and 3.85% for the first quarter of 2021. The cost of interest-bearing liabilities was 0.27% for the first quarter of 2022, 0.28% for the fourth quarter of 2021 and 0.34% for the first quarter of 2021. The Company’s net interest margin on a tax equivalent basis was 3.22% for the first quarter of 2022, compared to 3.07% for the fourth quarter of 2021 and 3.71% for the first quarter of 2021.

Net fees recognized on Paycheck Protection Program, or PPP, loans during the first quarter of 2022 were $989,000, $1.5 million during the fourth quarter of 2021 and $3.2 million during the first quarter of 2021.

Provision (Recapture) for Credit Losses

The provision for credit losses for the first quarter of 2022 was $435,000, compared to a recapture of $1.2 million for the fourth quarter of 2021 and $412,000 for the first quarter of 2021.

The provision for credit losses for the first quarter of 2022 is comprised of a $415,000 provision for credit losses related to unfunded commitments and a $20,000 provision for credit losses for loans.

The recapture of credit losses during the fourth quarter of 2021 primarily resulted from qualitative factor adjustments associated with continued improvements in the local economy.

The provision for credit losses for the first quarter of 2021 was comprised of $286,000 and $126,000 for the ACL for loans and for unfunded commitments, respectively.

The ACL for loans was $31.4 million, or 1.09%, of loans excluding loans held for sale at March 31, 2022, $31.3 million, or 1.09%, at December 31, 2021 and $40.9 million, or 1.41%, at March 31, 2021. The increase in the ACL from December 31, 2021 to March 31, 2022 was primarily due to an increase in collectively evaluated loans resulting from growth in the loan portfolio and adjustments to certain qualitative factors, which was partially offset by a decrease in the ACL related to individually evaluated loans resulting from a reduction in the associated principal balances.

Noninterest Income

Noninterest income was $5.3 million for the first quarter of 2022, $4.1 million for the fourth quarter of 2021 and $3.1 million for the first quarter of 2021.

The increase in noninterest income during the first quarter of 2022 was primarily due to payments totaling $1.5 million recognized in connection with the early termination of a land lease included in other noninterest income, and a gain of $1.2 million for sales of assets underlying a portion of the Company’s equity investments, partially offset by a $1.2 million loss included in net gain on sale of assets for the disposal of the building and improvements for the land lease that was terminated early.

Noninterest Expense

Noninterest expense was $24.7 million for the first quarter of 2022, compared to $34.8 million for the fourth quarter of 2021 and $23.3 million for the first quarter of 2021.

The decrease in noninterest of $10.2 million for the first quarter of 2022, compared to the fourth quarter of 2021 was primarily due to a decrease of $7.8 million in regulatory fees associated with payment of $8.0 million of civil money penalties to resolve BSA/AML, compliance matters during the fourth quarter of 2021 and a $1.4 million decrease in salaries and employee benefits primarily due to bonus expense in the fourth quarter of 2021.

The increase in noninterest expense of $1.4 million for the first quarter of 2022, compared to the first quarter of 2021, was primarily due to a $1.1 million increase in salaries and employee benefits, a $824,000 decrease in professional and director fees and a $1.2 million increase in other expenses. The increase in salaries and employee benefits of $1.1 million for the three months ended March 31, 2022, compared to the three months ended March 31, 2021, is primarily due to a $874,000 increase in salaries due to merit increases and a $165,000 increase in bonus accruals. Professional and director fees decreased $824,000 for the three months ended March 31, 2022, compared to the three months ended March 31, 2021, primarily due to a decrease in professional fees related to BSA/AML compliance matters of $531,000 and a $213,000 decrease in legal fees. Other expenses increased $1.2 million during the three months ended March 31, 2022, compared to the three months ended March 31, 2021, primarily due to $784,000 of costs related to the pending merger with Allegiance.

Income Taxes

Income tax expense was $2.3 million for the first quarter of 2022, $1.8 million for the fourth quarter of 2021 and $2.5 million for the first quarter of 2021. The effective tax rates were 17.69% for the first quarter of 2022, 142.41% for the fourth quarter of 2021 and 19.87% for the first quarter of 2021.

The differences between the federal statutory rate of 21% and the effective tax rates were largely attributable to permanent differences primarily related to tax exempt interest income, bank-owned life insurance earnings and merger-related expenses. The tax rate for the fourth quarter of 2021 were also impacted by the resolution of the BSA/AML compliance matters as the civil money penalties were not tax deductible.

Balance Sheet Highlights

Loans

Loans excluding loans held for sale were $2.9 billion at March 31, 2022, $2.9 billion at December 31, 2021 and $2.9 billion at March 31, 2021. Loans excluding loans held for sale increased $12.4 million from December 31, 2021 to March 31, 2022 primarily due to loan originations and line of credit drawdowns outpacing paydowns.

The decrease of $11.8 million from March 31, 2021 to March 31, 2022 was impacted by the repayment of PPP loans. The Company’s PPP loans were $17.5 million, net of deferred fees and unearned discounts, at March 31, 2022, $52.8 million at December 31, 2021 and $258.8 million at March 31, 2021. The PPP program has been closed to further borrowings and the Company has not originated any new loans under this program since the second quarter of 2021.

In support of customers impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic, the Company offered relief through payment deferrals during 2020 and 2021.

Net unrealized losses on the securities portfolio were $34.5 million at March 31, 2022, compared to net unrealized gains of $3.9 million at December 31, 2021. This decrease of $38.4 million was due to a reduction in fair value as a result of interest rate increases and anticipated increases.

Securities increased $258.9 million from March 31, 2021 to March 31, 2022 primarily due to purchases out pacing maturities, calls and paydowns, partially offset by decreases in fair value due to changes in interest rates and anticipated changes in interest rates during the first quarter of 2022.

The decrease in deposits of $10.1 million between December 31, 2021 and March 31, 2022 was due to net deposit outflows of $26.4 million in interest-bearing accounts and net deposit inflows of $16.3 million in noninterest-bearing accounts. The increase in deposits of $436.5 million between March 31, 2021 and March 31, 2022 was due to net deposit inflows of $256.6 million and $179.9 million in interest-bearing accounts and noninterest-bearing accounts, respectively.

Non-GAAP to GAAP Reconciliation
(In thousands, except per share data and percentages)

Our accounting and reporting policies conform to GAAP and the prevailing practices in the banking industry. However, we also evaluate our performance based on certain additional non-GAAP financial measures. We classify a financial measure as being a non-GAAP financial measure if that financial measure excludes or includes amounts, or is subject to adjustments that have the effect of excluding or including amounts, that are not included or excluded in the most directly comparable measure calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP in our statements of income, balance sheets or statements of cash flows. Non-GAAP financial measures do not include operating, other statistical measures or ratios calculated using exclusively financial measures calculated in accordance with GAAP. Non-GAAP financial 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 way we calculate the non-GAAP financial measures may differ from that of other companies reporting measures with similar names.

This earnings release contains certain non-GAAP financial measures including “tangible book value,” “tangible book value per common share,” and “tangible equity to tangible assets,” which are supplemental measures that are not required by, or are not presented in accordance with, GAAP.

The Company calculates tangible equity as total shareholders’ equity, less goodwill and other intangible assets, net of accumulated amortization, and tangible book value per share as tangible equity divided by shares of common stock outstanding at the end of the relevant period. The most directly comparable GAAP financial measure for tangible book value per share is book value per share.

The Company calculates tangible assets as total assets less goodwill and other intangible assets, net of accumulated amortization. The most directly comparable GAAP financial measure for tangible equity to tangible assets is total shareholders’ equity to total assets.

The Company believes that tangible book value per share and tangible equity to tangible assets are measures that are important to many investors in the marketplace who are interested in book value per share and total shareholders’ equity to total assets, exclusive of change in intangible assets.

The following table reconciles, as of the dates set forth below, total shareholders’ equity to tangible equity, total assets to tangible assets and presents book value per share, tangible book value per share, tangible equity to tangible assets and total shareholders’ equity to total assets:
