F.N.B. Corporation Reports First Quarter of 2022 Earnings
Successfully completed the acquisition of Howard Bancorp, Inc. and announces a $150 million share repurchase program

F.N.B. Corporation (NYSE: FNB) reported earnings for the first quarter of 2022 with net income available to common stockholders of $51.0 million, or $0.15 per diluted common share. Comparatively, first quarter of 2021 net income available to common stockholders totaled $91.2 million, or $0.28 per diluted common share, and fourth quarter of 2021 net income available to common stockholders totaled $96.5 million, or $0.30 per diluted common share.

On an operating basis, the first quarter of 2022 earnings per diluted common share (non-GAAP) was $0.26, excluding $47.8 million (pre-tax) in Howard Bancorp, Inc. (Howard) merger-related significant items and $4.2 million (pre-tax) in branch consolidation costs. On an operating basis, the first quarter of 2021 was $0.28 per share, and the fourth quarter of 2021 was $0.30 per share, excluding $0.8 million (pre-tax) of significant items in the fourth quarter of 2021.

“Driven by the successful execution of our growth strategy and continuing our positive momentum, F.N.B. Corporation produced high-quality first quarter results with operating earnings per share of $0.26,” said F.N.B. Corporation Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer, Vincent J. Delie, Jr. “During the first quarter, we grew revenue by 3.4% largely by an expansion in net interest income and overall loan growth while maintaining solid asset quality and growing loan pipelines. Loan balances, excluding PPP, increased 8.2% on a linked-quarter basis, and loan balances, excluding PPP and Howard loans as of the acquisition date, increased 4.3% annualized. FNB's Board of Directors approved a new $150 million share repurchase program providing additional flexibility to effectively manage capital and benefit our shareholders. Our strong capital levels, proactive risk management and conservatively underwritten balance sheet combined with the experience of our management team favorably positions FNB as we continue to successfully navigate a challenging environment.”

First Quarter 2022 Highlights
(All comparisons refer to the first quarter of 2021, except as noted)

  • On January 22, 2022, the acquisition of Howard was completed, adding loans and deposits with estimated fair values of $1.8 billion for both measures to the balance sheet. The acquisition-related systems conversions were successfully completed in February and integration is proceeding as planned.
  • Period-end total loans and leases, excluding Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) loans, increased $3.6 billion, or 15.7%, as commercial loans and leases increased $2.2 billion, or 14.4%, and consumer loans increased $1.4 billion, or 18.1%. PPP loans totaled $179.6 million at March 31, 2022, compared to $2.5 billion as of March 31, 2021.
  • On a linked-quarter basis, excluding PPP, period-end total loans increased $2.0 billion, or 8.2%, with commercial loans and leases increasing $1.3 billion, or 7.9%, and consumer loans increasing $753.8 million, or 8.9%. PPP loans totaled $179.6 million at March 31, 2022, compared to $336.6 million as of December 31, 2021. Excluding PPP and Howard acquired loans as of the acquisition date, period-end loans and leases (non-GAAP) increased $259.7 million, or 4.3% annualized, on a linked-quarter basis, including an increase of $81.7 million in commercial loans and leases and $178.0 million in consumer loans.
  • Total average deposits grew $3.6 billion, or 12.4%, led by increases in average non-interest-bearing deposits of $2.0 billion, or 22.2%, and average interest-bearing demand deposits of $1.6 billion, or 11.7%, partially offset by a decrease in average time deposits of $0.6 billion, or 16.3%. Average deposit growth reflected inflows from the Howard acquisition, PPP activities and organic growth in new and existing customer relationships, as well as current customer preferences to maintain larger balances in their deposit accounts and shift balances into more liquid accounts. Excluding Howard, average deposits (non-GAAP) grew $2.3 billion, or 7.8%.
  • Net interest income increased $11.2 million, or 5.0%, to $234.1 million primarily due to the benefit of growth in earning assets.
  • On a linked-quarter basis, the net interest margin (FTE) (non-GAAP) increased 6 basis points to 2.61%, as the earning asset yield increased 3 basis points and the cost of funds decreased 3 basis points. The total impact of PPP, purchase accounting accretion, and higher cash balances on net interest margin was a decrease of 13 basis points, down slightly from 14 basis points the prior quarter.
  • Non-interest income was $78.3 million, a decrease of $4.5 million, or 5.4%, driven by lower contributions from mortgage banking due to the increasing interest rate environment, partially offset by strong contributions from wealth management and insurance commissions and fees, as well as higher service charges reflecting increased customer activity.
  • The annualized net charge-offs to total average loans ratio was 0.03%, compared to 0.11%, with continued favorable asset quality trends across the loan portfolio.
  • Common Equity Tier 1 (CET1) regulatory capital ratio was 10.0% (estimated), compared to 9.9% at December 31, 2021, and 10.0% at March 31, 2021. Tangible book value per common share (non-GAAP) increased $0.08, or 1.0%, to $8.09. Accumulated other comprehensive income/loss (AOCI) reduced the tangible book value per common share by $0.57 as of March 31, 2022, primarily due to the impact of higher interest rates on the fair value of available-for-sale (AFS) securities, compared to a $0.16 reduction as of March 31, 2021. As part of the Howard acquisition, we issued 34,074,495 shares of common stock at $12.99 in exchange for 18,930,329 shares of Howard common stock.
  • During the first quarter of 2022, the Company repurchased 2.2 million shares of common stock at a weighted average share price of $13.25 for a total of $29.8 million. In April 2022, the Board of Directors authorizes a $150 million share repurchase to our program.

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 2022 Results – Comparison to Prior-Year Quarter
(All comparisons refer to the first quarter of 2021, except as noted)

Net interest income totaled $234.1 million, an increase of $11.2 million, or 5.0%, compared to $222.9 million, as total average earning assets increased $3.3 billion, or 10.1%, including a $1.5 billion increase in average cash balances largely attributed to the impact from PPP activity, $912.3 million increase in average securities, as well as $786.0 million increase in average loans and leases. The growth in average earning assets was partially offset by the repricing impact on earning asset yields, mitigated by the lower cost of interest-bearing deposit accounts and improved funding mix with a reduction in higher-cost borrowings and growth in non-interest bearing deposit accounts.

The net interest margin (FTE) (non-GAAP) declined 14 basis points to 2.61%, as the yield on earning assets decreased 26 basis points to 2.83%, primarily reflecting the lower yields on variable-rate loans and investment securities and the effect of higher average cash balances on the mix of earning assets. Partially offsetting the lower earning asset yields, the total cost of funds improved 14 basis points to 0.22%, reflecting an improved funding mix and a 17 basis point reduction in interest-bearing deposit costs, including a shift in customers' preferences to maintain larger deposit account balances and shift funds into more liquid accounts. The total impact of PPP, purchase accounting accretion, and higher cash balances on net interest margin was a decrease of 13 basis points, compared to a benefit of 5 basis points in the year-ago quarter.

Average loans and leases totaled $26.2 billion, an increase of $786.0 million, or 3.1%. Excluding PPP loans, average total loans and leases increased $2.8 billion, or 12.2%, including growth of $1.7 billion in commercial loans and leases ($0.9 billion from Howard) and $1.1 billion in consumer loans ($0.4 billion from Howard). The increase in average commercial loans and leases, excluding PPP, included $0.8 billion, or 16.4%, in commercial and industrial loans and $0.8 billion, or 8.5%, in commercial real estate balances driven by a combination of the Howard acquisition and organic loan origination activity. Commercial origination activity was led by the Pittsburgh and Mid-Atlantic markets. Average consumer loans increased $1.1 billion, or 14.1%, with a $655.2 million increase in residential mortgages and a $468.2 million increase in direct installment loans driven by a combination of the Howard acquisition and organic loan origination activity.

Average deposits totaled $33.0 billion with growth in average non-interest-bearing demand deposits of $2.0 billion, or 22.2%, and average interest-bearing demand deposits of $1.6 billion, or 11.7%, partially offset by a decline in time deposits of $0.6 billion, or 16.3%. The growth in average deposits reflected inflows from the Howard acquisition, PPP activities and organic growth in new and existing customer relationships. The loan-to-deposit ratio was 79.2% at March 31, 2022, compared to 84.1% at March 31, 2021, as deposit growth outpaced loan growth. Additionally, the funding mix continued to improve with non-interest-bearing deposits growing to 35% of total deposits, compared to 33% as of March 31, 2021.

Non-interest income totaled $78.3 million, a decrease of $4.5 million, or 5.4%, compared to the first quarter of 2021. Mortgage banking operations income decreased $9.1 million as secondary market revenue and mortgage held-for-sale pipelines normalized from significantly elevated levels given the sharp increase in mortgage rates. Service charges increased $3.7 million, or 13.2%, as the year-ago quarter reflected lower customer activity due to the pandemic. Wealth management revenues increased 9.1% led by strong trust income of $10.3 million, that increased $1.3 million, or 13.9%, primarily from record organic sales activity.

Non-interest expense totaled $227.4 million, increasing $42.6 million, or 23.0%. On an operating basis, non-interest expense totaled $194.6 million, an increase of $9.8 million, or 5.3%, compared to the first quarter of 2021, excluding $28.6 million of merger-related expenses and $4.2 million of branch consolidation costs in the first quarter of 2022. On an operating basis, salaries and benefits increased $4.8 million, or 4.5%, due to annual merit increases, higher medical costs, higher employer-paid payroll taxes and the acquired Howard expense base. Included in salaries and employee benefits in the first quarter of 2022 and 2021 was $6.2 million and $5.6 million, respectively, related to normal seasonal long-term compensation expense. The efficiency ratio (non-GAAP) equaled 60.7%, compared to 58.7% reflecting lower PPP and purchase accounting accretion income compared to a year ago.

The ratio of non-performing loans, 90 days past due, and other real estate owned (OREO) to total loans and OREO decreased 24 basis points to 0.44%. Total delinquency decreased 14 basis points to 0.66%, compared to 0.80% at March 31, 2021, demonstrating positive asset quality trends across the portfolio.

The provision for credit losses was $18.0 million, compared to $5.9 million in the first quarter of 2021. The provision for credit losses in the first quarter of 2022 included $19.1 million of initial provision for non-PCD loans associated with the Howard acquisition. Net charge-offs for the first quarter of 2022 were $1.9 million, or 0.03% annualized of total average loans, compared to $7.1 million, or 0.11% annualized, in the first quarter of 2021. The ratio of the allowance for credit losses (ACL) to total loans and leases decreased 4 basis points to 1.38%. Excluding PPP loans that do not carry an ACL due to a 100% government guarantee, the ACL to total loans and leases ratio equaled 1.39% and 1.57% at March 31, 2022, and 2021, respectively, directionally consistent with improved credit metrics.

The effective tax rate was 20.9%, compared to 18.9% in the first quarter of 2021, with the increase driven by higher state income taxes and nondeductible merger-related expenses resulting from the Howard acquisition.

The CET1 regulatory capital ratio was 10.0% (estimated), compared to 10.0% at March 31, 2021. Tangible book value per common share (non-GAAP) increased to $8.09 at March 31, 2022, an increase of $0.08, or 1.0%, from $8.01 at March 31, 2021. AOCI reduced the current quarter tangible book value per common share by $0.57, compared to $0.16 in the year-ago quarter, primarily due to the increase in unrealized losses on AFS securities resulting from the higher interest rate environment. During the first quarter of 2022, the Company repurchased 2.2 million shares of common stock at a weighted average share price of $13.25 for a total of $29.8 million.

First Quarter 2022 Results – Comparison to Prior Quarter
(All comparisons refer to the fourth quarter of 2021, except as noted)

Net interest income totaled $234.1 million, an increase of $10.8 million, or 4.8%, from the prior quarter total of $223.3 million, primarily due to growth in average earning assets and benefits from the higher interest rate environment, partially offset by the $4.2 million decreased contribution from PPP. The resulting net interest margin (FTE) (non-GAAP) increased 6 basis points to 2.61%. The total impact of PPP, purchase accounting accretion, and higher cash balances on net interest margin was a reduction of 13 basis points, compared to a reduction of 14 basis points in the prior quarter.

Total average earning assets increased $1.4 billion, or 4%, to $36.6 billion. The total yield on earning assets increased 3 basis points to 2.83%, due to higher yields on investments and variable-rate loans. The total cost of funds decreased 3 basis points to 0.22% from 0.25%, as the cost of interest-bearing deposits improved 3 basis points to 0.14%.

Average loans and leases totaled $26.2 billion as average commercial loans and leases increased $919.4 million and average consumer loans increased $584.9 million, compared to the fourth quarter of 2021. The average commercial loans and leases included growth of $777.2 million, or 7.9%, in commercial real estate and $130.0 million, or 2.2%, in commercial and industrial loans. The increases reflect the Howard acquisition as well as commercial origination activity led by the Pittsburgh and North and South Carolina markets. Consumer loan growth reflected average residential mortgages increasing $393.0 million, or 10.8%, average direct home equity installment balances increasing $170.4 million, or 7.4%, and average consumer lines of credit increasing $35.3 million, or 2.8%. The consumer loan growth was driven by a combination of the Howard acquisition and organic loan origination activity. Excluding PPP and Howard acquired loans as of the acquisition date, period-end loans and leases (non-GAAP) increased $259.7 million, or 4.3% annualized, on a linked-quarter basis, including an increase of $81.7 million in commercial loans and leases and $178.0 million in consumer loans.

Average deposits totaled $33.0 billion, increasing $1.3 billion, or 4.1%, driven by an increase in non-interest-bearing deposits of $524.9 million, or 4.9%, interest-bearing demand deposits of $508.3 million, or 3.5%, and savings balances of $289.5 million, or 8.1%. This growth reflected the Howard acquisition, as well as continued organic growth in households and account balances, partially offset by a decline in time deposits of $10.5 million, or 0.4%. The loan-to-deposit ratio was 79.2% at March 31, 2022, compared to 78.7% at December 31, 2021.

Non-interest income totaled $78.3 million, essentially flat from the prior quarter total of $79.0 million.  Insurance commissions and fees increased $2.3 million, or 42.6%, largely driven by normal seasonality. Wealth management increased $1.1 million, or 7.6%, led by an 8.5% increase in trust services and 5.8% increase in securities commissions and fees. Mortgage banking operations income increased $0.7 million, or 12.0%. Included in mortgage banking operations income was a $2.3 million recovery for MSR valuation, compared to a $1.0 million recovery in the fourth quarter of 2021, offset by the impacts of higher interest rates and the seasonal reduction in the mortgage held-for-sale pipeline and lower secondary market revenue. Capital markets income was $7.1 million, a decrease of $2.4 million, or 25.3%, from elevated levels in the fourth quarter. Bank-owned life insurance decreased $1.2 million, or 31.8%, primarily due to life insurance claims in the prior quarter.

Non-interest expense totaled $227.4 million, an increase of $45.8 million, or 25.2%. On an operating basis, non-interest expense increased $13.9 million, or 7.7%, compared to the prior quarter, excluding merger-related expenses of $28.6 million and branch consolidation costs of $4.2 million in the first quarter of 2022 and merger-related expenses of $0.8 million in the fourth quarter of 2021. On an operating basis, salaries and employee benefits increased $8.1 million, or 7.8%, primarily related to normal seasonal long-term compensation expense of $6.2 million in the first quarter of 2022, as well as seasonally higher employer-paid payroll taxes and the acquired Howard expense base. Occupancy and equipment increased $3.1 million, or 10.1%, due primarily to higher seasonal utilities costs. Bank shares and franchise taxes increased $2.3 million due to the recognition of state tax credits in the prior quarter. The efficiency ratio (non-GAAP) equaled 60.7%, compared to 58.1%, reflecting lower PPP and purchase accounting accretion income than the prior quarter.

The ratio of non-performing loans, 90 days past due, and OREO to total loans and OREO remained at very good levels, slightly increasing 3 basis points to 0.44%. Total delinquency slightly increased 5 basis points to 0.66%, compared to 0.61% at December 31, 2021.

The provision for credit losses was $18.0 million, including the $19.1 million initial provision for non-PCD loans associated with the Howard acquisition, compared to a net benefit of $2.4 million in the prior quarter, with continued strong underlying portfolio credit trends. Net charge-offs totaled $1.9 million, or 0.03% annualized of total average loans and leases, compared to $1.4 million, or 0.02% annualized. The ratio of the ACL to total loans and leases was unchanged at 1.38% as of March 31, 2022, and December 31, 2021.

The effective tax rate was 20.9%, compared to 20.0% for the fourth quarter of 2021.

The CET1 regulatory capital ratio was 10.0% (estimated), stable from December 31, 2021. Tangible book value per common share (non-GAAP) was $8.09 at March 31, 2022, a decrease of $0.50 per share from December 31, 2021. AOCI reduced the current quarter-end tangible book value per common share by $0.57 driven by increased unrealized losses on AFS securities caused by the higher interest rate environment, compared to $0.19 at the end of the prior quarter. During the first quarter of 2022, the Company repurchased 2.2 million shares of common stock at a weighted average share price of $13.25 for a total of $29.8 million.

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, operating 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, average deposits, excluding Howard average deposits, loans and leases, excluding PPP loans and Howard loans as of the acquisition date, excluding PPP loans, allowance for credit losses to loans and leases, excluding PPP loans, 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 loans, net loan charge-offs to average loans and leases excluding PPP loans, past due and non-accrual loans excluding PPP 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 items such as merger expenses, provision expense related to acquisitions and branch consolidation costs are not organic to run our operations and facilities. These items are considered significant items impacting earnings as they are deemed to be outside of ordinary banking activities. The merger expenses and branch consolidation costs 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.

To facilitate peer 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 2022 and 2021 periods were calculated using a federal statutory income tax rate of 21%.

    • Results of the regulatory examination and supervision process, including our failure to satisfy requirements imposed by the federal bank regulatory agencies or other governmental agencies.
    • Business and operating results are affected by our ability to effectively identify and manage risks inherent in our businesses, including, where appropriate, through effective use of policies, processes systems and controls, third-party insurance, derivatives, and capital and liquidity management techniques.
    • The impact on our financial condition, results of operations, financial disclosures and future business strategies related to the impact on the allowance for credit losses due to changes in forecasted macroeconomic conditions as a result of applying the “current expected credit loss” accounting standard, or CECL.
    • A failure or disruption in or breach of our operational or security systems or infrastructure, or those of third parties, including as a result of cyber-attacks or campaigns.
  • The COVID-19 pandemic and the federal, state, and local regulatory and governmental actions implemented in response to COVID-19 have resulted in increased volatility of the financial markets and national and local economic conditions, supply chain challenges, rising inflationary pressures, increased levels of unemployment and business failures, and the potential to have a material impact on, among other things, our business, financial condition, results of operations, liquidity, or on our management, employees, customers and critical vendors and suppliers. In view of the many unknowns associated with the COVID-19 pandemic, our forward-looking statements continue to be subject to various conditions that may be substantially different in the future than what we are currently experiencing or expecting, including, but not limited to, a prolonged recovery of the U.S. economy and labor market and the possible change in commercial and consumer customer fundamentals, expectations and sentiments. As a result of the COVID-19 impact, including uncertainty regarding the potential impact of continuing variant mutations of the virus, U.S. government responsive measures to manage it or provide financial relief, the uncertainty regarding its duration and the success of vaccination efforts, it is possible the pandemic may have a material adverse impact on our business, operations and financial performance.
  • We grow our business, in part, through acquisitions and new strategic initiatives. Risks and uncertainties include those presented by the nature of the business acquired and strategic initiative, including in some cases those associated with our entry into new businesses or new geographic or other markets and risks resulting from our unfamiliarity with those new areas, as well as risks and various uncertainties related to the acquisition transactions themselves, regulatory issues, and the integration of the acquired businesses into FNB after closing. Many of these risks and uncertainties were present in our January 2022 acquisition and integration of Howard Bancorp, Inc., including its banking subsidiary, Howard Bank.

The risks identified here are not exclusive or the types of risks FNB may confront and actual results may differ materially from those expressed or implied as a result of these risks and uncertainties, including, but not limited to, the risk factors and other uncertainties described under Item 1A Risk Factors and the Risk Management sections of our 2021 Annual Report on Form 10-K, our subsequent 2022 Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q (including the risk factors and risk management discussions) and our other 2022 filings with the SEC, which are available on our corporate website at https://www.fnb-online.com/about-us/investor-information/reports-and-filings or the SEC’s website at www.sec.gov. More specifically, our forward-looking statements may be subject to the evolving risks and uncertainties related to the COVID-19 pandemic and its macro-economic impact and the resulting governmental, business and societal responses to it. We have included our web address as an inactive textual reference only. Information on our website is not part of our SEC filings.
