F.N.B. Corporation Reports Record 2019 Net Income Available to Common Stockholders of $379.2 million and Earnings per Share of $1.16
Solid loan and deposit growth l Favorable asset quality l Diversified revenue growth

F.N.B. Corporation (NYSE: FNB) reported earnings for the fourth quarter of 2019 with net income available to common stockholders of $93.2 million, or $0.29 per diluted common share. Comparatively, fourth quarter of 2018 net income available to common stockholders totaled $98.1 million, or $0.30 per diluted common share, and third quarter of 2019 net income available to common stockholders totaled $100.7 million, or $0.31 per diluted common share. For the full year of 2019, net income available to common stockholders totaled $379.2 million, or $1.16 per diluted common share, compared to $364.8 million, or $1.12 per diluted common share in 2018.

On an operating basis, fourth quarter of 2019 earnings per diluted common share (non-GAAP) was $0.30, excluding $4.3 million for service charge refunds. Operating and reported earnings per diluted common share (non-GAAP) were $0.30 in the fourth quarter of 2018 and $0.31 in the third quarter of 2019.

For the full year of 2019, operating net income per diluted common share (non-GAAP) was $1.18, excluding $4.5 million in branch consolidation costs and $4.3 million for service charge refunds. The full year 2018 operating net income per diluted common share (non-GAAP) was $1.13, excluding a $5.1 million gain recognized from the sale of Regency Finance Company (Regency), $6.6 million of branch consolidation costs and a $0.9 million discretionary 401(k) contribution made following tax reform. This represents an increase of $0.05 per diluted common share (non-GAAP), or 4.4%, year-over-year.

“FNB produced outstanding results for both the fourth quarter and full year of 2019 with operating EPS of $0.30 and $1.18, respectively. The Company also generated positive operating leverage while setting new records for total revenue, non-interest income and net income. Our teams had great success driving loan and deposit growth while maintaining our disciplined approach to risk management,” commented Chairman, President, and Chief Executive Officer, Vincent J. Delie, Jr. “We ended a successful 2019 in a more favorable capital position, where tangible book value increased 13% and we generated record operating earnings of $386 million while returning nearly $160 million in dividends to our shareholders. 2019 total shareholder return of 35% exceeded the S&P 500 and significantly exceeded peers. Moving forward, we are well-positioned to benefit from our geographic expansion, as well as investments in technology and infrastructure, as these initiatives will help us continue to grow revenue by adding new clients and deepening our customer relationships."

Fourth Quarter 2019 Highlights
(All comparisons refer to the fourth quarter of 2018, except as noted)
  • Growth in total average loans was $1.3 billion, or 5.9%, with average commercial loan growth of $1.1 billion, or 7.8%, and average consumer loan growth of $223 million, or 2.7%.
  • Total average deposits grew $1.3 billion, or 5.7%, primarily due to an increase in average non-interest-bearing deposits of $308 million, or 5.1%, and an increase in interest-bearing demand deposits of $1.5 billion, or 15.2%, partially offset by a decrease in average time deposits of $468 million, or 8.7%, largely from a $622 million managed decline in brokered CD balances.
  • The loan to deposit ratio was 94.0% at December 31, 2019, compared to 94.4% at December 31, 2018.
  • Net interest income declined 2.5%, largely attributable to pressure on variable-rate loan yields and competitive pressures on interest-bearing deposit rates.
  • On a linked-quarter basis, the net interest margin (FTE) (non-GAAP) narrowed 10 basis points to 3.07%, resulting from lower variable-rate asset yields as benchmark interest rates moved lower during the second half of 2019, partially offset by a 6 basis point improvement in interest-bearing deposit costs in the fourth quarter. Compared to the fourth quarter of 2018, the net interest margin declined 22 basis points from 3.29%, attributable to changes in the interest rate environment compared to 2018.
  • Non-interest income increased $5.6 million, or 8.2%. Capital markets income grew $3.4 million, or 65.6%, reflecting strong customer-related interest rate derivative activity. Mortgage banking operations income increased $5.9 million, or 131.0%, due to a $4.9 million increase in gain on loans sold, including a $1.9 million interest rate-related favorable valuation adjustment on mortgage servicing rights. Insurance commissions and fees increased $1.4 million, or 38.9%, while trust income grew by $0.6 million, or 9.9%.
  • Effective tax rate was 17.6%, compared to 13.5%, due to benefits from renewable energy tax credits.
  • The efficiency ratio (non-GAAP) was 56.0%, compared to 54.1%.
  • The annualized net charge-offs to total average loans ratio decreased 15 basis points to 0.09% from 0.24%, indicative of continued favorable credit quality trends.

Fourth Quarter 2019 Results – Comparison to Prior-Year Quarter

Net interest income totaled $226.4 million, decreasing $5.8 million, or 2.5%. The net interest margin (FTE) (non-GAAP) declined 22 basis points to 3.07%, reflecting lower yields on variable-rate loans due to lower benchmark interest rates during the second half of 2019. The fourth quarter of 2019 included $8.4 million of incremental purchase accounting accretion and $1.2 million of cash recoveries compared to $8.3 million and $0.9 million, respectively, in the fourth quarter of 2018.

Total average earning assets increased $1.3 billion, or 4.7%, due to average loan growth of $1.3 billion. The total yield on average earning assets decreased to 4.13% from 4.31%, reflecting repricing of variable and adjustable-rate loans as the Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) lowered its target rate 75 basis points during 2019. The total cost of funds increased to 1.08%, compared to 1.04%, due to higher interest rates on interest-bearing deposits and borrowings driven by continued deposit pricing competition, specifically higher rates on customer money market and time deposits. Average short-term borrowings decreased $764.8 million, while average long-term borrowings increased $712.8 million as we opportunistically secured long-term funding amidst the current low interest rate environment.

Average loans totaled $23.2 billion and increased $1.3 billion, or 5.9%, due to solid growth in the commercial and consumer portfolios. Average total commercial loan growth totaled $1.1 billion, or 7.8%, including $796 million, or 17.9%, growth in commercial and industrial loans and commercial real estate balances increased $178 million, or 2.0%. 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 $223 million, or 2.7%, with growth in residential mortgages of $305 million, or 10.0%, indirect auto loans of $28 million, or 1.5%, and direct installment loans of $15 million, or 0.8%, which were partially offset by a decline of $126 million, or 7.9%, in consumer lines of credit.

Average deposits totaled $24.8 billion, an increase of $1.3 billion, or 5.7%, supported by growth in interest-bearing demand deposits of $1.5 billion, or 15.2%, and non-interest-bearing deposits of $308 million, or 5.1%. The growth in non-interest-bearing and interest-bearing deposits was led by organic growth in personal and commercial relationships. The loan-to-deposit ratio was 94.0% at December 31, 2019, compared to 94.4% at December 31, 2018.

Non-interest income totaled $74.0 million, increasing $5.6 million, or 8.2%. On an operating basis, non-interest income increased $9.9 million, or 14.5%, when excluding $4.3 million in service charge refunds. Capital markets income grew $3.4 million, or 65.6%, reflecting strong customer-related interest rate derivative activity, while trust income grew $0.6 million, or 9.9%. Mortgage banking operations income increased $5.9 million, or 131.0%, due to a $4.9 million increase in gain on loans sold and included $1.9 million of a favorable interest rate-related valuation adjustment on mortgage servicing rights in the fourth quarter of 2019, compared to $0.5 million of unfavorable interest rate-related valuation adjustments in the fourth quarter of 2018. The insurance commissions and fees increase of $1.4 million represents the benefit from new business in the Mid-Atlantic and Carolina regions, as well as organic growth in commercial lines.

Non-interest expense totaled $177.4 million, increasing $7.7 million, or 4.5%. The primary drivers were increases in occupancy and equipment of $2.6 million, or 9.4%, due to investments in technology and strategic projects; and salaries and benefits of $3.8 million, or 4.1%, related primarily to annual merit increases and production-related commissions. These increases were partially offset by a $0.5 million, or 8.4%, decrease in FDIC insurance expense. The efficiency ratio (non-GAAP) totaled 56.0%, compared to 54.1%.

The ratio of non-performing loans and other real estate owned (OREO) to total loans and OREO decreased 6 basis points to 0.55%. 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 satisfactory levels, and total originated delinquency, defined as total past due and non-accrual originated loans as a percentage of total originated loans, increased 7 basis points to 0.71%, compared to 0.64% at December 31, 2018.

The provision for credit losses totaled $7.5 million, compared to $15.2 million. The provision for credit losses supported loan growth and exceeded net charge-offs of $5.3 million, or 0.09% annualized of total average loans, which declined from $13.4 million, or 0.24%. For the originated portfolio, net charge-offs were $5.3 million, or 0.10% annualized, of total average originated loans, compared to $12.1 million, or 0.27% annualized, of total average originated loans. 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 0.84% and 0.81% at December 31, 2019, and December 31, 2018, respectively. For the originated portfolio, the allowance for credit losses to total originated loans was 0.93%, compared to 0.95% at December 31, 2018, directionally consistent with credit quality trends.

The effective tax rate was 17.6%, compared to 13.5%, due to benefits from renewable energy tax credits.

The tangible common equity to tangible assets ratio (non-GAAP) increased 53 basis points to 7.58% at December 31, 2019, compared to 7.05% at December 31, 2018. The tangible book value per common share (non-GAAP) was $7.53 at December 31, 2019, an increase of $0.85, or 13%, from $6.68 at December 31, 2018.

Fourth Quarter 2019 Results – Comparison to Prior Quarter

Net interest income totaled $226.4 million and decreased 1.5% from the prior quarter total of $229.8 million. The net interest margin (FTE) (non-GAAP) declined 10 basis points to 3.07%. Total purchase accounting accretion impact included $8.4 million of incremental purchase accounting accretion and $1.2 million of cash recoveries on acquired loans, compared to $8.1 million and $0.6 million, respectively.

Total average earning assets increased $509 million, or 6.9% annualized, due primarily to $503 million of strong loan growth. The total yield on earning assets declined 18 basis points to 4.13% as key benchmark interest rate resets on variable rate loans moved lower early in the third and fourth quarters. The total cost of funds decreased to 1.08% from 1.17%, reflecting lower borrowing costs, as well as a shift in funding mix and reductions in costs on interest-bearing deposits. The cost of short-term borrowings decreased from 2.19% to 1.88% while the average balance decreased $268 million due to deposit growth.

Average loans totaled $23.2 billion with average commercial loan growth of $360 million, or 10.0% annualized, and an increase in average consumer loans of $143 million, or 6.8% annualized. Average commercial loans included growth of $140 million, or 10.8% annualized, in commercial and industrial loans and an increase of $170 million, or 7.7% 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 $167 million, or 21.0% annualized, largely attributable to higher refinance activity given the lower interest rate environment. Average balances of indirect auto loans decreased $22 million, or 4.0% annualized, and average consumer lines of credit declined $29 million, or 8.0% annualized.

Average deposits totaled $24.8 billion and increased $741 million, or 12.4% annualized, due to growth of $1.0 billion, or 41.6% annualized, in interest-bearing demand deposits, and $131 million, or 8.4% annualized, in non-interest-bearing deposits, partially offset by a decline of $444 million, or 33.2% annualized, in time deposits, which included $417 million of lower brokered CD balances. Deposit growth reflects continued growth in commercial and consumer relationships. The loan-to-deposit ratio was 94.0% at December 31, 2019, compared to 93.8% at September 30, 2019.

Non-interest income totaled $74.0 million, decreasing $6.0 million, or 7.4%. On an operating basis, non-interest income decreased $1.7 million, or 2.1%, when excluding service charge refunds of $4.3 million. Insurance commissions and fees decreased $1.1 million, or 18.4% due to normal seasonal revenues impact in the third quarter. Other non-interest income decreased $1.9 million, primarily attributable to lower SBIC fund income in the fourth quarter. Capital markets income was relatively flat with continued strong contributions from interest rate derivative, international banking, and syndications activity.

Non-interest expense totaled $177.4 million, a slight decrease of $0.4 million, or 0.2%. In the prior quarter, the Company recognized an impairment of $3.2 million from a third quarter renewable energy investment tax credit transaction which was offset by  the fourth quarter 2019 salaries and employee benefits expense increase of $2.3 million, or 2.5%, mainly due to higher performance-based incentives, and occupancy and equipment expense increase of $1.7 million, or 6.0%, for investments in software and technology infrastructure. The efficiency ratio (non-GAAP) equaled 56.0%, compared to 54.1%.

The ratio of non-performing loans and OREO to total loans and OREO increased 3 basis points to 0.55%. For the originated portfolio, the ratio of non-performing loans and OREO to total loans and OREO increased 3 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, increased 5 basis points to 0.71%, compared to 0.66% at September 30, 2019.

The provision for credit losses totaled $7.5 million, compared to $11.9 million. The provision for credit losses exceeded net charge-offs of $5.3 million, or 0.09% annualized, of total average loans, compared to $6.4 million, or 0.11% annualized, in the prior quarter. For the originated portfolio, net charge-offs were $5.3 million, or 0.10% annualized, of total average originated loans, compared to $5.3 million or 0.11% annualized. The ratio of the allowance for credit losses to total loans and leases remained stable at 0.84% from September 30, 2019. For the originated portfolio, the allowance for credit losses to total originated loans decreased 2 basis points to 0.93%, compared to 0.95% at September 30, 2019.

The effective tax rate was 17.6%, compared to 14.5%, which included the benefit of certain renewable energy investment and historic tax credits.

The tangible common equity to tangible assets ratio (non-GAAP) increased 14 basis points to 7.58% at December 31, 2019, compared to 7.44% at September 30, 2019. The tangible book value per common share (non-GAAP) was $7.53 at December 31, 2019, an increase of $0.20 from September 30, 2019.

2019 Full-Year Results - Comparison to Full-Year 2018 Period

Net interest income totaled $917.2 million, decreasing $15.3 million, or 1.6%, reflecting the sale of Regency in the third quarter of 2018 and a lower level of purchase accounting benefit, partially offset by average earning asset growth of $1.4 billion, or 5.1%. The net interest margin (FTE) (non-GAAP) contracted 22 basis points to 3.17%, primarily due to the sale of Regency, a lower level of cash recoveries on acquired loans and impact from the lower interest rate environment. Regency contributed 8 basis points to net interest margin for the full year of 2018. The full year of 2019 included $7.7 million of higher incremental purchase accounting accretion and $10.3 million of lower cash recoveries, compared to the full year of 2018. The yield on earning assets increased 6 basis points to 4.29%, while the cost of funds increased 28 basis points to 1.15%, primarily due to competitive pressure on interest-bearing deposits.

Average loans totaled $22.8 billion, an increase of $1.2 billion, or 5.5%, due to solid origination activity across the footprint. Growth in average commercial loans totaled $814 million, or 6.0%, including growth of $663 million, or 15.3%, in commercial and industrial loans and flat commercial real estate balances. Commercial growth was led by strong commercial activity in the Cleveland, Pittsburgh, Charlotte and the Mid-Atlantic regions. Total average consumer loan growth of $381 million, or 4.7%, was led by increases in residential mortgage loans of $368 million and indirect auto loans of $239 million, partially offset by a decline of $140 million in consumer credit lines and a decline of $86 million in direct installment balances.

Average deposits totaled $24.1 billion and increased $1.2 billion, or 5.4%, due to average growth of $727 million, or 7.7%, in interest-bearing demand deposits; $285 million, or 4.9%, in non-interest-bearing deposits; and $246 million, or 4.9%, in time deposits.

Non-interest income totaled $294.3 million, increasing $18.6 million, or 6.8%. On an operating basis, non-interest income increased $26.1 million, or 9.5%, attributable to the continued growth in our fee-based businesses of capital markets of $11.9 million, or 55.5%, reflecting deeper penetration among FNB's new and existing commercial relationships, and mortgage banking income of $9.7 million, or 44.4%, as sold mortgage production volume increased $281 million, or 24%, compared to prior year. Trust income increased $2.1 million, or 8.0%, and insurance commissions and fees increased $2.2 million, or 11.7%.

Non-interest expense totaled $696.1 million, increasing $1.6 million, or 0.2%. On an operating basis, non-interest expense increased $2.6 million, or 0.4%. The increase in operating expenses was attributable mainly to an increase of $5.5 million, or 1.5%, in salaries and employee benefits, primarily due to normal merit increases; an increase of $5.2 million, or 4.5%, in occupancy and equipment expense, primarily due to technology investments; and a $3.2 million, or 3.8%, increase in other expenses reflecting an impairment from a third quarter renewable energy investment tax credit transaction of $3.2 million. The related renewable energy investment tax credits were recognized during the third quarter as a benefit to income taxes. These increases were mostly offset by the Regency sale and the elimination of the FDIC's large bank surcharge in the fourth quarter of 2018.  The efficiency ratio (non-GAAP) totaled 54.5%, compared to 54.8% in 2018.

The provision for credit losses was $44.6 million, compared to $61.2 million. Net charge-offs totaled $28.3 million, or 0.12%, of total average loans, compared to $56.0 million, or 0.26%, in 2018 reflecting continued strong credit quality trends. Originated net charge-offs were 0.11% of total average originated loans, compared to 0.31% which included the impact from Regency for the first eight months of 2018.

The effective tax rate was 17.7% for 2019 compared to 17.6% in 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 branch consolidation costs, service charge refunds and special one-time employee 401(k) contributions related to tax reform 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. 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%.

Cautionary Statement Regarding Forward-Looking Information

We make statements in this news release, may make statements in the related conference call and may from time-to-time make other statements regarding our outlook for earnings, revenues, expenses, tax rates, capital and liquidity levels and ratios, asset quality levels, financial position and other matters regarding or affecting our current or future business and operations.
