F.N.B. Corporation Reports Second Quarter 2020 Earnings per Share of $0.25, a 79% Increase from Prior Quarter
Revenue increased to $306 million l   Funded $2.6 billion in PPP Loans  l   Continued to serve our customers and communities during the pandemic

F.N.B. Corporation (NYSE: FNB) reported earnings for the second quarter of 2020 with net income available to common stockholders of $81.6 million, or $0.25 per diluted common share. Comparatively, first quarter of 2020 net income available to common shareholders totaled $45.4 million, or $0.14 per diluted common share, and second quarter of 2019 net income available to common stockholders totaled $93.2 million, or $0.29 per diluted common share. The results for the second quarter of 2020 reflect the impact of $2.6 billion of loans originated through the United States Department of Treasury Paycheck Protection Program (PPP), as well as expenses related to COVID-19 of $2.0 million and an estimated $17.1 million of incremental provision for credit losses due to the COVID-19 related impacts on our allowance for credit losses (ACL) modeling results. Total significant, outsized, or unusual items were $19.4 million (pre-tax), or $0.05 per diluted common share.

Vincent J. Delie, Jr., President, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of F.N.B. Corporation, said of its results, "As we all continue to experience many new challenges, our most recent performance demonstrates the tremendous power and dedication of our workforce and their ability to innovate and adapt to serve our constituents. As essential workers, our team has put in thousands of hours to ensure that customers have access to the funding, tools and expertise they need to maintain their livelihoods. As we move forward, I am confident that our team’s compassionate and resilient attitudes will continue to shape our performance and will translate into results for our customers, communities and shareholders.

Our Company’s efforts are apparent in the performance we achieved in this challenging and difficult economic environment. Operating earnings per share in the quarter increased 63% to $0.26, even with a substantial credit reserve build due to the potential impact of COVID-19 and changing macroeconomic conditions. Core revenue trends remained solid with total revenue increasing 6% annualized to $306 million, and total assets growing nearly $3 billion to end June at $38 billion. Compared to the first quarter, loans and deposits increased $2.3 billion and $3.6 billion, or 10% and 15%, respectively. Capital markets and mortgage banking set new records with revenues of $13 million and $17 million, respectively. Operating expenses were well-controlled as our efficiency ratio equaled  53.7% for the quarter."

Second Quarter 2020 Highlights

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

  • Growth in total average loans was $2.8 billion, or 12.5%, with average commercial loan growth of $2.8 billion, or 19.5%, and average consumer loan growth of $59 million, or 0.7%. Total loan growth included $2.6 billion of PPP commercial loans originated during the second quarter of 2020.
  • Total average deposits grew $3.4 billion, or 14.3%, primarily due to an increase in average non-interest-bearing deposits of $2.1 billion, or 34.2%, and an increase in average interest-bearing demand deposits of $2.1 billion, or 21.4%, partially offset by a managed decrease in average time deposits of $1.1 billion, or 19.7%. Growth in average deposits reflected inflows from the PPP and government stimulus checks, in addition to organic growth in customer relationships.
  • The loan to deposit ratio was 92.1% at June 30, 2020, compared to 95.0% at June 30, 2019 as deposit growth outpaced loan growth.
  • Net interest income decreased $2.4 million, or 1.1%, attributable to lower interest rates compared to 2019 due to the Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) lowering its target rate to 0-0.25% from 2.25%-2.50% between July 2019 and March 2020.
  • On a linked-quarter basis, the net interest margin (FTE) (non-GAAP) decreased 26 basis points to 2.88%, driven by the impact of the FOMC actions. Average loan yields declined 69 basis points and the total cost of funds decreased 34 basis points, as the cost of interest-bearing deposits decreased 37 basis points. Compared to the second quarter of 2019, the net interest margin declined 32 basis points from 3.20%.
  • Non-interest income increased $2.8 million, or 3.7%, led by an $8.9 million, or 117.4%, increase in mortgage banking income and a $2.6 million, or 26.8%, increase in capital markets. Service charges decreased $8.1 million, or 25.4%, largely due to significantly lower transaction volumes in the COVID-19 environment. 
  • The effective tax rate was 16.0%, compared to 19.7%, primarily due to renewable energy investment tax credits recognized during the second quarter of 2020.
  • The efficiency ratio (non-GAAP) improved 80 basis points to 53.7%, compared to 54.5%.
  • The annualized net charge-offs to total average loans ratio decreased 3 basis points to 0.13% from 0.16%.
  • The ratio of tangible common equity to tangible assets (non-GAAP) decreased 35 basis points to 6.97%, with net PPP loan balances impacting the June 30, 2020 TCE ratio by 52 basis points. The June 30, 2020 metric also includes the Day 1 Current Expected Credit Losses (CECL) adoption impact of $50.6 million, or 14 basis points, as well as incremental provision for credit losses related to the estimated impact of COVID-19 on our ACL modeling results. The significant, unusual, or outsized items in 2020 totaled $63.7 million after-tax, or 18 basis points, and impacted tangible book value per common share (non-GAAP) by $0.20 per share. On a linked-quarter basis, tangible book value per common share (non-GAAP) increased $0.17, or 2.3%, to $7.63. 

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.

Second Quarter 2020 Results – Comparison to Prior-Year Quarter

Net interest income totaled $228.0 million, decreasing $2.4 million, or 1.1%, as significant growth in average loans and deposits of $2.8 billion and $3.4 billion, respectively, partially offset the repricing impact from lower interest rates on variable and adjustable-rate loans. Total average earning assets increased $2.9 billion, or 9.8%, due to the average loan growth. The net interest margin (FTE) (non-GAAP) declined 32 basis points to 2.88%, as earning asset yields decreased 83 basis points reflecting lower yields on variable-rate loans as the quarterly average LIBOR and Prime rates significantly decreased. The total cost of funds also decreased 53 basis points to 0.67%, compared to 1.20%, due to reduced costs on interest-bearing deposits of 51 basis points and lower borrowing costs.

Average loans totaled $25.6 billion, an increase of $2.8 billion, or 12.5%, primarily due to PPP loans originated during the quarter. Average total commercial loan growth totaled $2.8 billion, or 19.5%, including $1.7 billion, or 34.6%, growth in commercial and industrial loans and $960 million, or 10.8%, growth in commercial real estate balances. Excluding PPP loans, origination activity remained solid with organic growth in the Pennsylvania, Cleveland, North and South Carolina, and Mid-Atlantic (Greater Baltimore-Washington D.C. markets) regions. Average consumer loan growth was $59 million, or 0.7%, with growth in residential mortgages of $191 million, or 5.8%, and direct installment loans of $165 million, or 9.5%, partially offset by a decline in consumer lending heavily impacted by COVID-19 as indirect auto loans decreased $162 million, or 8.3%, and consumer lines of credit decreased $135 million, or 8.8%.

Average deposits totaled $27.3 billion, an increase of $3.4 billion, or 14.3%, supported by growth in non-interest bearing demand deposits of $2.1 billion, or 34.2%, and interest-bearing demand deposits of $2.1 billion, or 21.4%. The growth in deposits was driven by deposits for PPP funding and government stimulus activities, as well as solid organic growth in customer relationships. The loan-to-deposit ratio was 92.1% at June 30, 2020, compared to 95.0% at June 30, 2019. 

Non-interest income totaled $77.6 million, increasing $2.8 million, or 3.7%. Mortgage banking operations income increased $8.9 million, or 117.4%, primarily due to $16.8 million in origination and secondary marketing revenue, compared to $8.8 million in the second quarter of 2019, as sold mortgage production volume increased 31% to $438 million and gain on sale margins have improved. Capital markets income grew $2.6 million, or 26.8%, to a record $12.5 million, reflecting balanced activity across the footprint. Insurance commissions and fees increased $1.4 million, or 32.3% representing the benefit from new business in North and South Carolina, as well as organic growth in commercial lines. Service charges decreased $8.1 million, or 25.4%, due to noticeably lower transaction volumes given COVID-19, although customer transaction volume began to increase late in the quarter. 

Non-interest expense totaled $175.9 million, increasing $0.7 million, or 0.4%. Non-interest expense increased $1.0 million, or 0.6%, when excluding $2.0 million of COVID-19 expenses in the second quarter of 2020 and $2.3 million of branch consolidation costs in the second quarter of 2019. In the second quarter of 2020, the Company also recognized an impairment of $4.1 million from a renewable energy investment tax credit transaction. The related renewable energy investment tax credits were recognized during the quarter as a benefit to income taxes. Occupancy and equipment expense decreased $1.9 million, or 6.0%. The efficiency ratio (non-GAAP) improved 80 basis points to 53.7%, compared to 54.5%.

The ratio of non-performing loans, 90 days past due, and other real estate owned (OREO) to total loans and OREO remained consistent at 0.75%. 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 a $65 million increase in non-accrual loans in the second quarter of 2020, compared to the second quarter of 2019. Total delinquency remains at satisfactory levels, and improved 3 basis points to 0.92%, compared to 0.95% at June 30, 2019. Excluding PPP loans at June 30, 2020, total delinquency increased 6 basis points to 1.01%.

The provision for credit losses totaled $30.2 million, compared to $11.5 million, driven by an estimated $17.1 million of incremental provision due to the COVID-19 related impacts on our ACL modeling results. Net charge-offs were $8.5 million, or 0.13% annualized of total average loans, which declined from $9.0 million, or 0.16%. The ratio of the ACL to total loans and leases was 1.40% and 0.83% at June 30, 2020 and June 30, 2019, respectively. Excluding PPP loans that do not carry an ACL losses due to a 100% government guarantee, the ACL losses to total loan and leases ratio equaled 1.54%, or an impact of 14 basis points. The CECL adoption on January 1, 2020, resulted in a Day 1 increase to the ACL of $105.3 million. As of June 30, 2020, total loans in deferral related to the COVID-19 pandemic totaled $2.4 billion. Over 98% of the $2.4 billion of loans in deferment were current and in good standing at December 31, 2019.

The effective tax rate was 16.0%, compared to 19.7%, driven by benefits from renewable energy investment tax credits.

The tangible common equity to tangible assets ratio (non-GAAP) decreased 35 basis points to 6.97% at June 30, 2020, compared to 7.32% at June 30, 2019, as the PPP loan activity impacted the TCE ratio by 52 basis points at June 30, 2020. The tangible book value per common share (non-GAAP) was $7.63 at June 30, 2020, an increase of $0.52, or 7.3%, from $7.11 at June 30, 2019.

Second Quarter 2020 Results – Comparison to Prior Quarter

Net interest income totaled $228.0 million, a decrease of $4.7 million, or 2.0%, from the prior quarter total of $232.6 million as loan and deposit growth mostly offset the impact from lower interest rates. The net interest margin (FTE) (non-GAAP) decreased 26 basis points to 2.88%, driven by a full-quarter impact of the FOMC action to lower the target Fed Funds rate range on March 16, 2020 to 0.00%-0.25%. Additionally, average 1-month LIBOR fell to 0.36% from 1.41% in the prior quarter.

Total average earning assets increased $2.0 billion, or 6.7%, due primarily to $2.1 billion of significant loan growth driven by PPP and strong organic commercial loan activity. The total yield on earning assets declined 58 basis points to 3.54%, reflecting lower yields on variable and adjustable-rate loans due to lower interest rates. The total cost of funds decreased to 0.67% from 1.01%, as costs on interest-bearing deposits decreased 37 basis points.

Average loans totaled $25.6 billion with average commercial loan growth of $2.1 billion, or 14.1%, and a slight decrease in average consumer loans of $15.3 million, or 0.2%. Average commercial loans included growth of $1.2 billion, or 21.9%, in commercial and industrial loans and an increase of $857 million, or 9.6%, in commercial real estate. Commercial organic origination activity was led by the Pennsylvania and Mid-Atlantic regions. Consumer balances included an increase in average residential mortgage loans of $53 million, or 1.6%, largely attributable to higher refinancing activity given the lower interest rate environment and average direct installment loans also increased $66 million, 3.6%. This was partially offset by declines in average balances of indirect auto loans by $94 million, or 4.9%, and average consumer lines of credit by $40 million, or 2.8%.

Average deposits totaled $27.3 billion, increasing $2.7 billion, or 10.8%, driven by an increase in non-interest bearing deposits of $1.8 billion, or 29.3%. Interest-bearing deposits increased $807 million, or 4.4%, net of the managed decline of $273 million, or 5.8%, in time deposits. The loan-to-deposit ratio was 92.1% at June 30, 2020, compared to 96.5% at March 31, 2020.

Non-interest income totaled $77.6 million, increasing $9.1 million, or 13.3%, as mortgage banking operations increased $17.6 million due to $16.8 million of origination and secondary marketing revenue. The mortgage banking results also included a $0.3 million unfavorable interest rate-related valuation adjustment on mortgage servicing rights in the second quarter compared to an unfavorable $7.7 million valuation adjustment in the first quarter. Mortgage production increased $306 million, or 55%, from the prior quarter with large contributions from North Carolina and the Mid-Atlantic regions. Capital markets income increased $1.4 million, or 12.6%, with strong contributions from interest rate derivative activity across the footprint. Service charges decreased $6.2 million, or 20.5%, due to noticeably lower transaction volumes in the COVID-19 environment.

Non-interest expense totaled $175.9 million, a decrease of $19.0 million, or 9.7%, and included $2.0 million of expenses associated with COVID-19 in the second quarter of 2020, compared to $15.9 million of outsized, unusual or significant expenses occurring in the first quarter. Excluding outsized, unusual, or significant expenses, non-interest expense declined $5.1 million, or 2.9%, primarily related to lower salaries and employee benefit expense as higher production-related commissions were more than offset by lower employer-paid taxes, as well as higher production-related salary deferrals from loan origination activities. In the second quarter of 2020, the Company also recognized an impairment of $4.1 million in other non-interest expense from a renewable energy investment tax credit transaction. The related renewable energy investment tax credits were recognized during the quarter as a benefit to income taxes. The efficiency ratio (non-GAAP) improved to 53.7%, compared to 59.0%.

The ratio of non-performing loans, 90 days past due, and OREO to total loans and OREO increased 8 basis points to 0.75%. Total delinquency remains at favorable levels, and decreased 21 basis points to 0.92%, compared to 1.13% at March 31, 2020. Excluding PPP, total delinquency decreased 12 basis points to 1.01%.

The provision for credit losses totaled $30.2 million, compared to $47.8 million. The provision for credit losses exceeded net charge-offs of $8.5 million, or 0.13% annualized, of total average loans and leases compared to $5.7 million, or 0.10% annualized, of total average loans. The ratio of the ACL to total loans and leases decreased to 1.40% from 1.44% at March 31, 2020, but included PPP loans that do not carry an ACL due to a 100% government guarantee. Excluding PPP net loans, the ACL to total loans and leases ratio equaled 1.54%, an impact of 14 basis points.

The effective tax rate was 16.0%, compared to 18.8%, reflecting the benefit of certain renewable energy investment tax credits.

The tangible common equity to tangible assets ratio (non-GAAP) decreased 39 basis points to 6.97% at June 30, 2020, compared to 7.36% at March 31, 2020, as the PPP loan activity impacted the TCE ratio by 52 basis points at June 30, 2020. Tangible book value per common share (non-GAAP) was $7.63 at June 30, 2020, an increase of $0.17 from March 31, 2020.

June 30, 2020 Year-To-Date Results - Comparison to Prior Year-To-Date Period

Net interest income totaled $460.6 million, decreasing $0.4 million, or 0.1%, reflecting a lower rate environment offset by average earning asset growth of $2.0 billion, or 6.9%. The net interest margin (FTE) (non-GAAP) contracted 22 basis points to 3.01%, primarily due to the impact of lower interest rates as year-to-date average 1-month LIBOR declined to 0.90% from 2.47% for the first half of 2019. The yield on earning assets decreased 55 basis points to 3.82%, while the cost of funds improved 34 basis points to 0.83%, primarily due to actions taken to reduce the cost of interest-bearing deposits given the low interest rate environment.

Average loans totaled $24.6 billion, an increase of $2.0 billion, or 8.8%, due to benefit from PPP activity and solid origination activity across the footprint. Growth in average commercial loans totaled $1.9 billion, or 13.3%, including growth of $1.4 billion, or 28.9%, in commercial and industrial loans. Commercial growth was led by strong commercial activity in the Pennsylvania, North Carolina, and Mid-Atlantic regions. Total average consumer loan growth of $113 million, or 1.3%, was led by increases in residential mortgage loans of $215 million, or 6.7%, and direct installment balances of $132 million, or 7.5%, partially offset by a decline of $130 million, or 8.4%, in consumer credit lines and $104 million, or 5.3%, in indirect auto loans.

Average deposits totaled $25.9 billion, increasing $2.3 billion, or 9.8%, due to average growth of $1.7 billion, or 17.9%, in interest-bearing demand deposits and $1.2 billion, or 20.7%, in non-interest-bearing deposits. On a spot basis, total deposits increased $4.7 billion, or 19.6%, driven by deposits for PPP funding and government stimulus activities, as well as solid organic growth in customer relationships.

Non-interest income totaled $146.2 million, increasing $5.9 million, or 4.2%. On an operating basis, non-interest income increased $9.6 million, or 6.7%, attributable to the record growth in our fee-based businesses of capital markets with an increase of $7.7 million, or 48.6%, reflecting FNB's strong relationships with new and existing commercial customers, and mortgage banking income with an increase of $4.0 million, or 34.7%, as production levels increased 32.9% and gain on sale increased 42.2%.  There were also increases in insurance commissions and fees of $3.1 million, or 33.1%, and trust income of $1.5 million, or 10.9%. There was a decline in service charges of $8.2 million, or 13.2%, as there were noticeably lower customer transaction volumes in the COVID-19 environment, however volumes began to increase late in the second quarter.

Non-interest expense totaled $370.8 million, increasing $29.8 million, or 8.8%. Excluding significant, unusual, or outsized items totaling $17.9 million year-to-date in 2020, non-interest expense increased $12.0 million, or 3.5%. This increase was attributable to increases in outside services of $3.0 million, or 9.9%, and higher salaries of $12.2 million, or 6.6%, primarily related to normal merit increases and production-related commissions. The efficiency ratio (non-GAAP) totaled 56.4%, compared to 54.0% in 2019.

The provision for credit losses was $78.0 million, compared to $25.1 million, which included an estimated $55 million of COVID-19 related provision in the first six months of 2020. Net charge-offs totaled $14.2 million, or 0.12%, of total average loans, compared to $16.6 million, or 0.15%, in 2019.

The effective tax rate was 17.0% for 2020, compared to 19.5% in 2019, primarily due to renewable energy investment tax credits recognized during the second quarter of 2020.

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, allowance for credit losses to loans and leases, excluding PPP,  non-performing loans to loans and leases excluding PPP loans, non-performing loans and 90 days past due and OREO to loans and leases plus OREO, excluding PPP, net loan charge-offs to average loans and leases excluding PPP loans, past due and non-accrual loans to loans and leases excluding PPP loans, 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 later in 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 and COVID-19 expense 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. The COVID-19 expenses represent special Company initiatives to support our front-line employees and the communities we serve during an unprecedented time of a pandemic.

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%.
