F.N.B. Corporation Reports First Quarter 2019 Earnings per Share of $0.28 and Operating Earnings per Share of $0.29
Strong commercial loan growth and favorable asset quality ~ Positive operating leverage and expense control ~ 12% growth in operating earnings per share from year-ago quarter

F.N.B. Corporation (NYSE: FNB) reported earnings for the first quarter of 2019 with net income available to common stockholders of $92.1 million, or $0.28 per diluted common share. Comparatively, first quarter of 2018 net income available to common stockholders totaled $84.8 million, or $0.26 per diluted common share, and fourth quarter of 2018 net income available to common stockholders totaled $98.1 million, or $0.30 per diluted common share. On an operating basis, first quarter of 2019 earnings per diluted common share (non-GAAP) was $0.29, excluding $1.6 million in branch consolidation costs.  Operating earnings per diluted common share (non-GAAP) equaled reported results in the first and fourth quarters of 2018.

"We are very pleased to report another strong quarter. Operating earnings per share grew 12% year-over-year to $0.29, benefiting from continued positive operating leverage. Operating return on tangible common equity was again peer-leading at nearly 18%, and the efficiency ratio improved by more than 200 basis points to 53%," commented Chairman, President, and Chief Executive Officer, Vincent J. Delie, Jr. "We are off to a great start in 2019 as total loans grew 8% annualized with contributions from across the footprint, including our newer southeastern markets. We established good momentum in the first quarter and we are excited about executing our business plan throughout the rest of the year."

First Quarter 2019 Highlights
(All comparisons refer to the first quarter of 2018, except as noted)

  • Growth in total average loans was $1.2 billion, or 5.8%, with average commercial loan growth of $602 million, or 4.5%, and average consumer loan growth of $622 million, or 8.0%. Compared to the fourth quarter of 2018, total average loans grew $440 million, or 8.1% annualized.
  • Total average deposits grew $1.2 billion, or 5.6%, including an increase in average non-interest-bearing deposits of $285 million, or 5.1%, an increase in interest-bearing demand deposits of $263 million, or 2.8%, and an increase in average time deposits of $711 million, or 15.3%.
  • The loan to deposit ratio was 94.7% at March 31, 2019, compared to 94.5%.
  • The net interest margin (FTE) (non-GAAP) declined 13 basis points to 3.26% from 3.39%, primarily due to the sale of Regency Finance Company (Regency) in the third quarter of 2018. Regency contributed 12 basis points to net interest margin in the first quarter of 2018.The decline also reflected higher funding costs caused by four increases in benchmark interest rates during 2018 and increased deposit pricing competition, partially offset by a 4 basis point increase in the contribution from incremental purchase accounting accretion.
  • The company issued $120 million of 4.950% fixed-to-floating rate subordinated notes due 2029.
  • Total revenue increased 0.8% to $296.0 million, reflecting a 2.0% increase in net interest income partially offset by a 3.1% decrease in non-interest income.
  • Non-interest income decreased $2.1 million, or 3.1%, including a $1.2 million loss on fixed assets related to branch consolidations. Capital markets income grew 15.8%, reflecting strong interest rate swap and international banking activity, while trust income grew 5.2%.Dividends on non-marketable equity securities increased $1.0 million to $5.0 million due to an increase in the FHLB dividend rate, while mortgage banking operations income declined primarily due to a $1.3 million interest rate-related valuation adjustment of mortgage servicing rights.
  • The efficiency ratio (non-GAAP) improved to 53.4%, compared to 55.8% in the first quarter of 2018 and 54.1% in the fourth quarter of 2018.
  • The annualized net charge-offs to total average loans ratio decreased to 0.14% from 0.20%, reflective of continued strong credit quality results.
  • The ratio of the allowance for credit losses to total loans and leases decreased to 0.82%, compared to 0.84%. The provision for credit losses of $13.6 million supported strong loan growth and exceeded net charge-offs of $7.6 million. The low level of net charge-offs reflects previous actions taken to reduce credit risk, including the sale of Regency.
  • The ratio of tangible common equity to tangible assets (non-GAAP) increased 37 basis points to 7.15%. Tangible book value per common share (non-GAAP) increased $0.77, or 12.5%, to $6.91.

Non-GAAP measures referenced in this release are used by management to measure performance in operating the business that management believes enhances investors' ability to better understand the underlying business performance and trends related to core business activities. Reconciliations of non-GAAP operating measures to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures are included in the tables at the end of this release.  "Incremental purchase accounting accretion" refers to the difference between total accretion and the estimated coupon interest income on loans acquired in a business combination. "Organic growth" refers to growth excluding the benefit of initial balances from acquisitions.

First Quarter 2019 Results – Comparison to Prior-Year Quarter

Net interest income totaled $230.6 million, increasing $4.5 million, or 2.0%. The net interest margin (FTE) (non-GAAP) declined 13 basis points to 3.26%, primarily due to the sale of Regency in the third quarter of 2018. Regency contributed 12 basis points to the net interest margin in the first quarter of 2018. The first quarter of 2019 included $8.4 million of incremental purchase accounting accretion and $1.0 million of cash recoveries, compared to $4.8 million and $1.1 million, respectively, in the first quarter of 2018. The continued benefit from purchase accounting accretion primarily reflects continued improvement in credit quality performance for the acquired loan portfolio. First quarter interest expense included a net benefit of $1.6 million for the $2.5 million recognition of the remaining discount on higher coupon acquired debt that was retired during the quarter, partially offset by $0.9 million of incremental interest expense for the quarter. These facilities were extinguished late in the quarter following a $120 million issuance of subordinated debt. Additionally, non-interest expense of $1.1 million was recorded related to the debt extinguishment.

Total average earning assets increased $1.7 billion, or 6.2%, due primarily to average loan growth of $1.2 billion. The total yield on average earning assets increased to 4.37% from 4.08%, reflecting repricing of variable and adjustable loans, higher purchase accounting accretion, and higher reinvestment rates on securities. The total cost of funds increased to 1.14%, compared to 0.71%, reflecting higher interest rates on borrowings and interest-bearing deposits caused by four increases in benchmark interest rates during 2018, increased deposit pricing competition and a $327 million increase in average short-term borrowings.

Average loans totaled $22.4 billion and increased 5.8% due to solid growth in the commercial and consumer portfolios. Excluding Regency balances in the first quarter of 2018, average loans grew 6.6%. Average total commercial loan growth totaled $602 million, or 4.5%, including 13.2% growth in commercial and industrial loans and commercial leases. Commercial loan growth was led by strong activity in the Cleveland and Mid-Atlantic (Greater Baltimore-Washington D.C. markets) regions and continued growth in the equipment finance and asset-based lending businesses. Average consumer loan growth was $622 million, or 8.0%, as growth in indirect auto loans of $468 million, or 31.7%, and residential mortgage loans of $446 million, or 16.4%, was partially offset by declines in direct installment loans and consumer lines of credit.

Average deposits totaled $23.4 billion, an increase of $1.2 billion, or 5.6%, reflecting growth in non-interest-bearing deposits of $285 million, or 5.1%, growth in money market balances of $445 million, or 9.8%, and growth in time deposits of $711 million, or 15.3%, partially offset by a decline in interest checking of $182 million, or 3.7%. The growth in non-interest-bearing and money market deposits included growth in consumer and commercial relationships. The loan-to-deposit ratio was 94.7% at March 31, 2019, compared to 94.5% at March 31, 2018.

Non-interest income totaled $65.4 million, decreasing $2.1 million, or 3.1%. Excluding a $1.2 million branch consolidation-related loss on fixed assets, non-interest income decreased $0.9 million or 1.4%. Capital markets income grew $0.8 million, or 15.8%, reflecting strong interest rate swap and international banking activity across the footprint, while trust income grew $0.3 million, or 5.2%. Dividends on non-marketable equity securities increased $1.0 million to $5.0 million, due to an increase in the FHLB dividend rate, while mortgage banking operations income declined $1.6 million, or 29.4%, primarily due to a $1.3 million interest rate-related valuation adjustment of mortgage servicing rights. Bank-owned life insurance income decreased $0.4 million, or 13.5%.

Non-interest expense totaled $165.7 million, decreasing 3.1%. Excluding $0.5 million of branch consolidation costs, non-interest expense totaled $165.3 million, decreasing 3.4%. The primary driver of the decrease in non-interest expense was a $2.9 million, or 32.6%, decrease in FDIC insurance expense, partially offset by a $2.0 million, or 2.2%, increase in salaries and benefits. The decline in FDIC expense was primarily due to the elimination of the FDIC's large bank surcharge in the fourth quarter of 2018, while the increase in salaries and benefits was primarily related to annual merit increases. The efficiency ratio (non-GAAP) improved to 53.4% from 55.8%.

The ratio of non-performing loans and other real estate owned (OREO) to total loans and OREO decreased 9 basis points to 0.58%. For the originated portfolio, the ratio of non-performing loans and OREO to total loans and OREO decreased 22 basis points to 0.59%. Total delinquency remains at satisfactory levels, and total originated delinquency, defined as total past due and non-accrual originated loans as a percentage of total originated loans, improved 16 basis points to 0.63%, compared to 0.79% at March 31, 2018.

The provision for credit losses totaled $13.6 million, compared to $14.5 million. The provision for credit losses supported strong loan growth and exceeded net charge-offs of $7.6 million, or 0.14% annualized of total average loans, which declined from $10.6 million, or 0.20%. For the originated portfolio, net charge-offs were $4.8 million, or 0.10% annualized of total average originated loans, compared to $11.0 million or 0.29% annualized of total average originated loans. The ratio of the allowance for credit losses to total loans and leases was 0.82% and 0.84% at March 31, 2019, and March 31, 2018, respectively. For the originated portfolio, the allowance for credit losses to total originated loans was 0.94%, compared to 1.08% at March 31, 2018, directionally consistent with credit quality.

The effective tax rate was 19.3%, compared to 19.7%.

The tangible common equity to tangible assets ratio (non-GAAP) increased 37 basis points to 7.15% at March 31, 2019, compared to 6.78% at March 31, 2018. The tangible book value per common share (non-GAAP) was $6.91 at March 31, 2019, an increase of $0.77, or 13%, from $6.14 at March 31, 2018.

First Quarter 2019 Results – Comparison to Prior Quarter

Net interest income totaled $230.6 million, decreasing $1.6 million or 0.7%, due primarily to fewer days in the quarter. The net interest margin (FTE) (non-GAAP) declined 3 basis points to 3.26% and included $8.4 million of incremental purchase accounting accretion and $1.0 million of cash recoveries, compared to $8.3 million and $0.9 million, respectively. First quarter interest expense included a net benefit of $1.6 million for the $2.5 million recognition of the remaining discount on higher coupon acquired debt that was retired during the quarter, partially offset by $0.9 million of incremental interest expense for the quarter. These facilities were extinguished late in the quarter following a $120 million issuance of subordinated debt. Additionally, non-interest expense of $1.1 million was recorded related to the debt extinguishment.

Total average earning assets increased $532 million, or 7.6% annualized, due to average loan growth of $440 million and an $87 million increase in average securities. The total yield on earning assets increased to 4.37% from 4.31%, reflecting repricing of variable and adjustable loans. The total cost of funds increased to 1.14% from 1.04%, reflecting higher interest rates on borrowings and interest-bearing deposits caused by an increase in benchmark interest rates and increased deposit price competition, and a $584 million increase in average short-term borrowings.

Average loans totaled $22.4 billion and increased $440 million, or 8.1% annualized, with average commercial loan growth of $332 million, or 9.9% annualized, and average consumer loan growth of $108 million, or 5.2% annualized. Commercial balances included growth of $283 million, or 23.8% annualized, in commercial and industrial loans and commercial leases, and growth of $46 million, or 2.1% annualized, in commercial real estate. Commercial loan growth was led by our Cleveland, Pittsburgh, and Mid-Atlantic markets. Consumer balances reflected continued growth in residential mortgage loans of $123 million, or 16.4% annualized, and indirect auto loans of $34 million, or 7.3% annualized, partially offset by declines in direct installment loans and consumer lines of credit.

Average deposits totaled $23.4 billion and decreased $87 million, or 1.5% annualized, due primarily to normal seasonal declines in municipal deposits and declines in brokered time deposits, partially offset by growth in consumer non-interest-bearing deposits and business and consumer money market balances. The loan-to-deposit ratio was 94.7% at March 31, 2019, compared to 94.4% at December 31, 2018.

Non-interest income totaled $65.4 million, decreasing $3.0 million, or 4.4%. Excluding a $1.2 million branch consolidation-related loss on fixed assets, non-interest income decreased $1.9 million, or 2.7%. Seasonally strong insurance commissions and fees increased $1.3 million, or 35.7%, and capital markets income increased $0.8 million or 16.1% due to strong interest rate swap and international banking activity across the footprint. Dividends on non-marketable equity securities increased $1.1 million to $5.0 million due to an increase in the FHLB dividend rate. This was offset by a $2.1 million, or 6.6%, seasonal decrease in service charges, as well as a $0.6 million, or 13.4%, decrease in mortgage banking operations reflecting a $1.3 million interest rate-related valuation adjustment of mortgage servicing rights.

Non-interest expense totaled $165.7 million, a decrease of $4.0 million, or 2.3%. Excluding $0.5 million of branch consolidation costs, non-interest expense decreased $4.4 million, or 2.6%. The primary drivers of the first quarter decrease in non-interest expense were a $2.0 million, or 11.9%, decrease in outside services (primarily legal and consulting), and a $0.8 million, or 0.9%, decrease in personnel expense. These decreases were partially offset by a $2.0 million, or 7.0%, increase in occupancy and equipment primarily due to seasonally higher utilities expense. Bank shares and franchise taxes increased $1.5 million due primarily to Pennsylvania state tax credits recognized in the fourth quarter of 2018. Donations of $1.3 million made in the fourth quarter to earn these tax credits were recognized in other non-interest expense. The efficiency ratio (non-GAAP) improved to 53.4%, compared to 54.1%.

The ratio of non-performing loans and OREO to total loans and OREO decreased 3 basis points to 0.58%. For the originated portfolio, the ratio of non-performing loans and OREO to total loans and OREO decreased 2 basis points to 0.59%. Total delinquency remains at favorable levels, and total originated delinquency, defined as total past due and non-accrual originated loans as a percentage of total originated loans, decreased 1 basis point to 0.63%, compared to 0.64% at December 31, 2018.

The provision for credit losses totaled $13.6 million, compared to $15.2 million. The provision for credit losses supported strong loan growth and exceeded net charge-offs of $7.6 million, or 0.14% annualized of total average loans, compared to $13.4 million, or 0.24% annualized in the prior quarter. For the originated portfolio, net charge-offs were $4.8 million, or 0.10% annualized of total average originated loans, compared to $12.1 million or 0.27% annualized. The ratio of the allowance for credit losses to total loans and leases increased to 0.82% from 0.81% at December 31, 2018. For the originated portfolio, the allowance for credit losses to total originated loans declined to 0.94% from 0.95% at December 31, 2018.

The effective tax rate was 19.3%, compared to 13.5%. The prior quarter was affected by investment tax credits related to lease financing projects.

The tangible common equity to tangible assets ratio (non-GAAP) increased 10 basis points to 7.15% at March 31, 2019, compared to 7.05% at December 31, 2018. The tangible book value per common share (non-GAAP) was $6.91 at March 31, 2019, an increase of $0.23 from December 31, 2018.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures and Key Performance Indicators

To supplement our Consolidated Financial Statements presented in accordance with GAAP, we use certain non-GAAP financial measures, such as operating net income available to common stockholders, operating earnings per diluted common share, return on average tangible equity, return on average tangible common equity, return on average tangible assets, tangible book value per common share, the ratio of tangible equity to tangible assets, the ratio of tangible common equity to tangible assets, efficiency ratio, and net interest margin (FTE) to provide information useful to investors in understanding our operating performance and trends, and to facilitate comparisons with the performance of our peers. Management uses these measures internally to assess and better understand our underlying business performance and trends related to core business activities. The non-GAAP financial measures and key performance indicators we use may differ from the non-GAAP financial measures and key performance indicators other financial institutions use to assess their performance and trends.

These non-GAAP financial measures should be viewed as supplemental in nature, and not as a substitute for or superior to, our reported results prepared in accordance with GAAP. When non-GAAP financial measures are disclosed, the Securities and Exchange Commission's (SEC) Regulation G requires: (i) the presentation of the most directly comparable financial measure calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP and (ii) a reconciliation of the differences between the non-GAAP financial measure presented and the most directly comparable financial measure calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP. Reconciliations of non-GAAP operating measures to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures are included in the tables at the end of this release under the heading “Reconciliations of Non-GAAP Financial Measures and Key Performance Indicators to GAAP”.

Management believes charges such as merger expenses, branch consolidation costs and special one-time employee 401(k) contributions related to tax reform are not organic costs to run our operations and facilities. The merger expenses and branch consolidation charges principally represent expenses to satisfy contractual obligations of the acquired entity or closed branch without any useful ongoing benefit to us. These costs are specific to each individual transaction and may vary significantly based on the size and complexity of the transaction. Similarly, gains derived from the sale of a business are not organic to our operations.

To provide more meaningful comparisons of net interest margin and efficiency ratio, we use net interest income on a taxable-equivalent basis in calculating net interest margin by increasing the interest income earned on tax-exempt assets (loans and investments) to make it fully equivalent to interest income earned on taxable investments (this adjustment is not permitted under GAAP). Taxable-equivalent amounts for the 2019 and 2018 periods were calculated using a federal statutory income tax rate of 21% provided under the TCJA (effective January 1, 2018).
