F.N.B. Corporation Reports First Quarter 2020 Results and COVID-19 Actions

Implemented significant measures to support employees, customers, communities, and shareholders during COVID-19


F.N.B. Corporation (NYSE: FNB) reported earnings for the first quarter of 2020 with net income available to common stockholders of $45.4 million, or $0.14 per diluted common share. Comparatively, first quarter of 2019 net income available to common stockholders totaled $92.1 million, or $0.28 per diluted common share, and fourth quarter of 2019 net income available to common stockholders totaled $93.2 million, or $0.29 per diluted common share. The results for the first quarter of 2020 reflect a provision for credit losses of $37.9 million, or $0.09 per share, related to the COVID-19 macroeconomic impacts under the newly adopted Current Expected Credit Losses Standard (CECL), branch consolidation costs of $8.3 million, $0.02 per share, mortgage servicing rights impairment of $7.7 million, or $0.02 per share, accelerated vesting of certain 2020 stock grants of $5.6 million, or $0.01 per share, and COVID-19 related expenses of $2.0 million. These significant, unusual, or outsized items totaled $61 million, negatively impacting earnings by $0.15 per share.

Vincent J. Delie, Jr., President, Chairman and CEO of F.N.B. Corporation, said of its results, “Today’s COVID-19 pandemic and economic environment present all businesses, employees, customers and communities with new challenges. As an essential business, FNB is committed to being there for our customers when they need us the most, while at the same time, protecting the health and safety of our employees.

Our ongoing investments in technology and our digital platforms, including online appointment setting, enabled FNB to quickly meet customers’ needs in a new pandemic environment. We were able to develop an online application system in a week’s time to capture and process nearly 15,000 applications and $2.1 billion in the first allocation of funding to small businesses through participation in the SBA’s Paycheck Protection Program.

In addition to providing deferral and support programs for customers experiencing financial hardships due to the coronavirus, FNB committed $1 million in relief assistance to our communities, benefiting food banks and providing funding for essential medical supplies. We also supported our colleagues in the field with enhanced financial benefits and extended leave programs. I would like to commend and thank our employees. Their professional, compassionate, positive and resilient attitudes have been a bright light in helping each other, our customers, and our communities.  Moving forward, FNB is prepared for economic fluctuations, with ample liquidity and capital levels well above regulatory requirements. I am equally confident in our team’s ability to continue to deliver quality service and, in return, quality results."

First Quarter 2020 Highlights

(All comparisons refer to the first quarter of 2019, except as noted)

  • Growth in total average loans was $1.1 billion, or 5.0%, with average commercial loan growth of $963 million, or 6.9%, and average consumer loan growth of $167 million, or 2.0%, with minimal average balance growth due to COVID-19.
  • Total average deposits grew $1.2 billion, or 5.2%, primarily due to an increase in interest-bearing demand deposits of $1.4 billion, or 14.3%, and an increase in average non-interest-bearing deposits of $404 million, or 6.9%, partially offset by a decrease in average time deposits of $678 million, or 12.7%, largely from a managed decline in brokered CD balances.
  • The loan to deposit ratio was 96.5% at March 31, 2020, compared to 94.7% at March 31, 2019, which includes a $249 <span style=">million increase in commercial line utilization primarily due to COVID-19 related activity as of March 31, 2020.
  • Net interest income increased 0.9%, attributable to continued loan growth and reduced interest-bearing deposit rates based on current market conditions.
  • On a linked-quarter basis, the net interest margin (FTE) (non-GAAP) increased 7 basis points to 3.14%, driven by stable average loan yields accompanied by a 7 basis point improvement in total cost of funds. Compared to the first quarter of 2019, the net interest margin declined 12 basis points from 3.26%, due to lower yields on earning assets from declines in the interest rate environment compared to 2019.
  • Additionally, on March 16, 2020, the Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) reset the target Fed Funds rate range to 0.00%-0.25%, largely attributable to the COVID-19 impact.
  • Non-interest income increased $3.1 million, or 4.8%. Capital markets income grew $5.1 million, or 84.1%, reflecting strong customer-related interest rate derivative activity and record transaction volume during the quarter. Insurance commissions and fees increased $1.7 million, or 33.8%, while trust income grew by $1.2 million, or 17.4%. Mortgage banking operations income decreased $4.9 million, or 126.5%, as higher origination and secondary marketing revenues were fully offset by a $7.7 million unfavorable impairment on mortgage servicing rights compared to $1.3 million in the first quarter of 2019.
  • Effective tax rate was 18.8%, compared to 19.3%.
  • The efficiency ratio (non-GAAP) was 59.0%, compared to 53.4%, reflecting the impact of significant, unusual, and outsized items during the first quarter of 2020.
  • The annualized net charge-offs to total average loans ratio improved 4 basis points to 0.10% from 0.14%.
  • The ratio of tangible common equity to tangible assets (non-GAAP) increased 21 basis points to 7.36%. Compared to the fourth quarter of 2019, the ratio of tangible common equity to tangible assets (non-GAAP) decreased 22 basis points as the day 1 CECL adoption resulted in a $50.6 million, or 16 basis points, impact on January 1, 2020, as well as incremental provision for credit losses during the first quarter related to changes in the lifetime estimates due to the impact of COVID-19 on the macroeconomic variables used in the estimate. Significant, unusual, or outsized items during the first quarter of 2020 totaled $48.5 million after-tax, or 15 basis points, and impacted tangible book value per common share (non-GAAP) by $0.16 per share. On a linked-quarter basis, tangible book value per common share (non-GAAP) decreased $0.07, or 0.9%, to $7.46.

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.

First Quarter 2020 Results – Comparison to Prior-Year Quarter 

Net interest income totaled $232.6 million, increasing $2.0 million, or 0.9%. The net interest margin (FTE) (non-GAAP) declined 12 basis points to 3.14%, reflecting lower yields on variable-rate loans due to lower benchmark interest rates following significant changes in the interest rate environment since July 2019, partially offset by reduced total cost of funds and higher discount accretion on acquired loans in a post-CECL environment.

Total average earning assets increased $1.2 billion, or 4.0%, due to average loan growth of $1.1 billion. The total yield on average earning assets decreased to 4.12% from 4.37%, driven by repricing of variable and adjustable-rate loans as the FOMC lowered its target rate by 2.25% between July 2019 and March 2020. The total cost of funds decreased to 1.01%, compared to 1.14%, due to improved funding costs on interest-bearing deposits and borrowings, specifically lower rates on customer money market, time deposits, and short-term borrowings.  The company issued $300 million in 2.20% 3-year fixed rate senior notes in late February, leading to an increase in average long-term borrowings of $795.9 million and a decrease to average short-term borrowings of $1.0 billion.

Average loans totaled $23.5 billion and increased $1.1 billion, or 5.0%, due to solid loan growth, particularly in the commercial portfolio. Average total commercial loan growth totaled $963 million, or 6.9%, including $753 million, or 15.9%, growth in commercial and industrial loans and $147 million, or 1.7%, in commercial real estate balances. Commercial loan growth was led by strong activity in the Pittsburgh, Cleveland, Charlotte, Raleigh and Mid-Atlantic (Greater Baltimore-Washington D.C. markets) regions. Average consumer loan growth was $167 million, or 2.0%, with growth in residential mortgages of $239 million, or 7.6%, and direct installment loans of $99 million, or 5.6%, partially offset by a decline in consumer lines of credit of $125 million, or 8.0%, and indirect auto loans of $46 million, or 2.4%.

Average deposits totaled $24.6 billion, an increase of $1.2 billion, or 5.2%, supported by growth in interest-bearing demand deposits of $1.4 billion, or 14.3%, and non-interest-bearing deposits of $404 million, or 6.9%. The growth in non-interest-bearing and interest-bearing deposits was led by organic growth in both personal and commercial relationships. The loan-to-deposit ratio was 96.5% at March 31, 2020, compared to 94.7% at March 31, 2019.
 
Non-interest income totaled $68.5 million, increasing $3.1 million, or 4.8%. Capital markets income grew $5.1 million, or 84.1%, reflecting strong customer-related interest rate derivative activity in a volatile rate environment, while trust income grew $1.2 million, or 17.4% primarily driven by organic growth. Insurance commissions and fees increased $1.7 million, or 33.8%, representing the benefit from new business in the Carolina regions, as well as organic growth in commercial lines. Mortgage banking operations income decreased $4.9 million, or 126.5%, primarily due to a $7.7 million unfavorable interest rate-related valuation adjustment on mortgage servicing rights in the first quarter of 2020, compared to $1.3 million in the first quarter of 2019. The impairment was partially offset by origination and secondary marketing revenue of $6.5 million, compared to $4.0 million in the first quarter of 2019.
 
Non-interest expense totaled $194.9 million, increasing $29.2 million, or 17.6%. The primary drivers were increases in salaries and benefits of $12.5 million, or 13.7%, related primarily to production-related commissions and an increase in stock-based compensation. We made a change to long-term stock-based compensation vesting that resulted in accelerated grant date expense recognition for certain 2020 awards, with full expense recognition on grant date instead of recognizing the same expense amount over a 36-month vesting period. There were $8.3 million of branch consolidation costs compared to $0.5 million of branch consolidation costs in the first quarter of 2019, and $2.0 million of COVID-19 related expenses in the first quarter of 2020. Outside services also increased $2.2 million, or 14.6%. Excluding significant, unusual, and outsized items, non-interest expense increased $13.8 million, or 8.4%. The efficiency ratio (non-GAAP) totaled 59.0%, compared to 53.4%.
 
The ratio of non-performing loans and other real estate owned (OREO) to total loans and OREO increased 6 basis points to 0.64%. Prior to the adoption of CECL, acquired (purchased credit deteriorated, or PCD) loans were excluded from our nonperforming disclosures. PCD loans that meet the definition of non-accrual are now included in the disclosures and resulted in $65 million increase in the non-accrual loans in the first quarter of 2020 compared to the first quarter of 2019. Total delinquency remains at satisfactory levels, and increased 16 basis points to 1.13%, compared to 0.97% at March 31, 2019.

The provision for credit losses totaled $47.8 million, compared to $13.6 million, driven by the COVID-19 related impacts to macroeconomic conditions. Net charge-offs were $5.7 million, or 0.10% annualized of total average loans, which declined from $7.6 million, or 0.14%. The decline in net charge-offs was attributable to continued favorable asset quality trends. The ratio of the allowance for credit losses to total loans and leases was 1.44% and 0.82% at March 31, 2020, and March 31, 2019, respectively. The CECL adoption on January 1, 2020, resulted in a Day 1 increase to the allowance for credit losses of $105.3 million. Additionally, we recorded $38 million of incremental provision for loan losses in the first quarter of 2020 specifically due to COVID-19 related macroeconomic conditions. 

The effective tax rate was 18.8%, compared to 19.3% driven by lower pretax income.

The tangible common equity to tangible assets ratio (non-GAAP) increased 21 basis points to 7.36% at March 31, 2020, compared to 7.15% at March 31, 2019. The tangible book value per common share (non-GAAP) was $7.46 at March 31, 2020, an increase of $0.55, or 8.0%, from $6.91 at March 31, 2019. These increases were negatively impacted by 31 basis points, or $0.31 per share, respectively, for CECL adoption and significant, unusual, or outsized items during the first quarter of 2020. All capital ratios were impacted by the repurchase of 2.4 million common shares. The Company repurchased $25 million of common stock during the 2020 first quarter at an average cost of $10.60 per share. There is $125 million of share repurchase authorization remaining under the $150 million repurchase plan approved in 2019.
 
First Quarter 2020 Results – Comparison to Prior Quarter
 
Net interest income totaled $232.6 million, an increase of $6.2 million, or 2.7% from the prior quarter total of $226.4 million. The net interest margin (FTE) (non-GAAP) expanded 7 basis points to 3.14%, driven by stable average loan yields, higher discount accretion on acquired loans in a post-CECL environment, and a 10 basis point improvement in the cost of average deposits.

Total average earning assets increased $358 million, or 4.8% annualized, due primarily to $278 million of strong loan growth. The total yield on earning assets declined 1 basis point to 4.12% as higher accretion on acquired loans offset a decline in yields on variable-rate loans. The total cost of funds decreased to 1.01% from 1.08%, reflecting lower borrowing costs, as well as a shift in funding mix and reduction of 10 basis points in costs on interest-bearing deposits. The company issued $300 million in 2.20% 3-year fixed rate senior notes in late February, reducing the cost of long-term debt to 2.84% from 2.95%.  The cost of short-term borrowings decreased from 1.88% to 1.67% while the average balance decreased $342 million due to the use of proceeds from the long-term debt issuance.

Average loans totaled $23.5 billion with average commercial loan growth of $225 million, or 6.1% annualized, and an increase in average consumer loans of $53 million, or 2.5% annualized. Average commercial loans included growth of $220 million, or 16.8% annualized, in commercial and industrial loans and an increase of $14 million, or 0.8% annualized, in commercial real estate. Average commercial loan growth was led by the Pittsburgh, Cleveland, Charlotte, Raleigh and Mid-Atlantic regions. Consumer balances included an increase in average residential mortgage loans of $57 million, or 7.0% annualized, largely attributable to higher refinance activity given the lower interest rate environment. Average balances of indirect auto loans decreased $40 million, or 8.3% annualized, led by focused pricing strategies to enhance line of business profitability. Average direct installment loans increased $65 million, 14.4% annualized, partially offset by average consumer lines of credit declining $29 million, or 8.0% annualized.

Average deposits totaled $24.6 billion and decreased $217 million, or 3.5% annualized, driven by a decline of $236 million, or 19.4% annualized, in time deposits, which included $93 million of lower brokered CD balances. Balances in interest-bearing demand remained constant and non-interest bearing deposits declined $41 million, or 2.6% annualized, indicative of normal seasonal flows. The loan-to-deposit ratio was 96.5% at March 31, 2020, compared to 94.0% at December 31, 2019.
 
Non-interest income totaled $68.5 million, decreasing $5.5 million, or 7.4%. Excluding significant, unusual, or outsized items, non-interest income decreased $0.3 million, or 0.3%, when excluding significant items to non-interest income of a $7.7 million unfavorable interest-rate related valuation adjustment on mortgage servicing rights in the first quarter of 2020, and $4.3 million of service charge refunds as well as a $1.9 million favorable interest-rate related valuation adjustment on mortgage servicing rights in the fourth quarter of 2019. Insurance commissions and fees increased $1.5 million, or 30.7% due to seasonal contingent revenues which occurred during the first quarter. Capital markets increased $2.5 million, or 29.1%, with strong contributions from interest rate derivative activity in a volatile interest-rate environment. Mortgage banking operations decreased $11.5 million, or 109.9%, due to a $7.7 million unfavorable interest rate-related valuation adjustment on mortgage servicing rights offset by $6.5 million of origination and secondary marketing revenue. Last quarter, mortgage banking operations had a $1.9 million favorable interest-rate related valuation adjustment on mortgage servicing rights and a record $8.4 million of origination and secondary marketing revenue.
 
Non-interest expense totaled $194.9 million, an increase of $17.5 million, or 9.9%. Excluding significant, unusual, or outsized items, non-interest expense increased $1.7 million, or 1.0%, when excluding $2.0 million of expenses associated with COVID-19, $8.3 million of branch consolidation costs, and $5.6 million of accelerated vesting on certain 2020 long-term stock-based compensation. The first quarter 2020 salaries and employee benefits expense increased $7.9 million, or 8.2%, mainly due to the accelerated vesting of certain 2020 stock grants. Bank shares and franchise taxes increased $1.7 million reflecting the recognition of a $1.2 million state tax credit in the prior quarter and higher year-end 2019 bank capital levels. The efficiency ratio (non-GAAP) equaled 59.0%, compared to 56.0%.
 
The ratio of non-performing loans and OREO to total loans and OREO increased 9 basis points to 0.64%. Prior to the adoption of CECL, acquired PCD loans were excluded from our nonperforming disclosures. PCD loans that meet the definition of non-accrual are now included in the disclosures and resulted in $54 million increase in the non-accrual loans in the first quarter of 2020 compared to the prior quarter. Total delinquency remains at favorable levels, and increased 19 basis points to 1.13%, compared to 0.94% at December 31, 2019.

The provision for credit losses totaled $47.8 million, compared to $7.5 million. The provision for credit losses exceeded net charge-offs of $5.7 million, or 0.10% annualized, of total average loans. Net charge-offs were unchanged from the prior quarter. The ratio of the allowance for credit losses to total loans and leases increased to 1.44% from 0.84% at December 31, 2019, representing the impact of CECL adoption and $38 million reserve build related to the impact of COVID-19 on macroeconomic conditions.
 
The effective tax rate was 18.8%, compared to 17.6%, as the prior quarter included the benefit of certain renewable energy investment tax credits.
 
The tangible common equity to tangible assets ratio (non-GAAP) decreased 22 basis points to 7.36% at March 31, 2020, compared to 7.58% at December 31, 2019, and tangible book value per common share (non-GAAP) was $7.46 at March 31, 2020, a decrease of $0.07 from December 31, 2019. These declines were primarily attributable to the previously mentioned January 1, 2020 CECL adoption and COVID-19 related allowance for credit losses reserve build during the first quarter of 2020 in addition to the impact of other significant, unusual, and outsized items.
 
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, pre-provision net revenue to average tangible common equity, 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 branch consolidation costs, COVID-19 expense and service charge refunds are not organic costs to run our operations and facilities. These charges are considered significant items impacting earnings as they are deemed to be outside of ordinary banking activities. The branch consolidation charges principally represent expenses to satisfy contractual obligations of the closed branches 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.

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 2020 and 2019 periods were calculated using a federal statutory income tax rate of 21%.
