  • Total deposits increased $53.8 million from the first quarter of 2018

COSTA MESA, Calif., July 23, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Pacific Mercantile Bancorp (Nasdaq:PMBC), the holding company of Pacific Mercantile Bank (the “Bank”), a wholly owned banking subsidiary, and PM Asset Resolution, Inc. (“PMAR”), a wholly owned non-bank subsidiary, today reported its financial results for the three and six months ended June 30, 2018.

For the second quarter of 2018, the Company reported net income of $15.4 million, or $0.65 per share. This compares with net income of $3.7 million, or $0.16 per share, in the first quarter of 2018, and net income of $2.5 million, or $0.11 per share, in the second quarter of 2017. The increase in net income, as compared to the three months ended March 31, 2018, is primarily attributable to an increase in net interest income, a decrease in noninterest expense and the reversal of the full valuation allowance on our deferred tax asset during the three months ended June 30, 2018. The release of the valuation allowance during the three months ended June 30, 2018 is the result of management's determination regarding the realizability of the deferred tax asset attributable in large part due to having had seven consecutive quarters of earnings and substantially improved asset quality since the valuation allowance was established during the three months ended September 30, 2016.

Commenting on the results, Tom Vertin, President & CEO of Pacific Mercantile Bancorp, said, “We experienced positive trends across most of our key metrics, resulting in increased profitability during the second quarter.  Our improving financial performance and positive outlook, among other favorable factors, led to the recapture of our deferred tax asset, which substantially increases our book value per share.  We are seeing good results in our efforts to acquire operating company clients.  During the second quarter, our total deposits increased nearly 5% from the end of the prior quarter with all of the growth coming in core deposits.  We expect the improvement in our deposit mix to continue, which should help us to better manage our funding costs in a rising interest rate environment.  We have a solid client acquisition pipeline that we expect to result in a higher level of loan and deposit growth over the second half of the year, and should result in higher revenue, further operating leverage, and continued increases in our profitability.”

Net Interest Income

Q2 2018 vs Q1 2018. Net interest income increased $262 thousand, or 2.2%, for the three months ended June 30, 2018 as compared to the three months ended March 31, 2018 primarily as a result of:

  • An increase in interest income of $899 thousand, or 6.0%, primarily attributable to an increase in interest earned on loans and short-term investments as a result of higher average balances and an increase in the average yields during the three months ended June 30, 2018 as compared to the three months ended March 31, 2018, which was primarily the result of the rising interest rate environment, and an increase of $42 thousand from $769 thousand during the three months ended March 31, 2018 to $811 thousand for the three months ended June 30, 2018 related to the recovery of interest income on separate loan relationships that had been on nonaccrual status but were paid in full; partially offset by
  • An increase in interest expense of $637 thousand, or 22.5%, primarily attributable to an increase in the volume of and rates of interest paid on our deposits for the three months ended June 30, 2018 as compared to the three months ended March 31, 2018, which was primarily the result of higher deposits due to new client acquisition and an increase in the rate of interest paid on non-maturing interest bearing deposits resulting from the rising interest rate environment.

Our net interest margin decreased to 3.78% for the three months ended June 30, 2018 as compared to 3.84% for the three months ended March 31, 2018 primarily attributable to an increase in the cost of interest bearing liabilities resulting from an increase in prevailing interest rates, partially offset by an increase in the average yield on loans during the second quarter of 2018.

Q2 2018 vs Q2 2017. Net interest income increased $2.1 million, or 19.7%, for the three months ended June 30, 2018 as compared to the three months ended June 30, 2017 primarily as a result of:

  • An increase in interest income of $3.8 million, or 31.2%, primarily attributable to an increase in interest earned on loans and short-term investments as a result of higher average balances and an increase in the average yields during the three months June 30, 2018 as compared to the three months ended June 30, 2017, which was primarily the result of the rising interest rate environment, and the recovery of $811 thousand in interest income on a single loan relationship that had been on nonaccrual status but was paid in full during the second quarter of 2018; partially offset by
  • An increase in interest expense of $1.7 million, or 99.7%, primarily attributable to an increase in the volume of and rates of interest paid on our deposits and other borrowings for the three months ended June 30, 2018 as compared to the three months ended June 30, 2017, which was primarily the result of higher deposits due to new client acquisition, our decision to increase the rate of interest paid on our non-maturing interest bearing deposits and our certificates of deposit resulting from the rising interest rate environment, and an increase in our Federal Home Loan Bank (“FHLB”) borrowings.

YTD 2018 vs YTD 2017. Net interest income increased $4.2 million, or 20.3%, for the six months ended June 30, 2018 as compared to the six months ended June 30, 2017, primarily as a result of:

  • An increase in interest income of $7.2 million, or 30.3%, primarily attributable to an increase in interest earned on loans and short-term investments as a result of higher average balances and an increase in the average yields during the six months ended June 30, 2018 as compared to the six months ended June 30, 2017, which was primarily the result of the rising interest rate environment, and the recovery of $1.6 million in interest income on two loan relationships that had been on nonaccrual status but were paid in full during the six months ended June 30, 2018; partially offset by
  • An increase in interest expense of $3.0 million, or 92.6%, primarily attributable to an increase in the volume of and rates of interest paid on our deposits and other borrowings for the six months ended June 30, 2018 as compared to the six months ended June 30, 2017, which was primarily the result of higher deposits due to new client acquisition, our decision to increase the rate of interest paid on our non-maturity interest bearing deposits and our certificates of deposit resulting from the rising interest rate environment, and an increase in our FHLB borrowings.

Provision for Loan and Lease Losses

Q2 2018 vs Q1 2018. We recorded no provision for loan and lease losses during either the three months ended June 30, 2018 or March 31, 2018 due primarily to a slight decrease in our loan portfolio during each quarter. During the three months ended June 30, 2018, we had net charge-offs of $36 thousand, compared with net charge-offs of $791 thousand for the three months ended March 31, 2018.

Q2 2018 vs Q2 2017.  We recorded no provision for loan and lease losses during either the three months ended June 30, 2018 or June 30, 2017.  There was no provision for the second quarter of 2018 due primarily to a slight decrease in our loan portfolio during the quarter. There was no provision for loan and lease losses in the second quarter of 2017 due primarily to reserves for new loan growth being offset by a decline in the level of classified assets.

YTD 2018 vs YTD 2017. We recorded no provision for loan and lease losses during either the six months ended June 30, 2018 or June 30, 2017. We recorded no provision for loan and lease losses during the six months ended June 30, 2018 due primarily to a slight decrease in our loan portfolio during the period. We recorded no provision for loan and lease losses during the six months ended June 30, 2017 due primarily to reserves for new loan growth being offset by a decline in the level of classified assets.

Noninterest Income

Q2 2018 vs Q1 2018. Noninterest income increased $81 thousand, or 7.7%, for the three months ended June 30, 2018 as compared to the three months ended March 31, 2018, primarily resulting from:

  • An increase in loan servicing and referral fees during the second quarter of 2018 as compared to the prior quarter; partially offset by
  • A decrease in gain on the sale of securities available-for-sale during the second quarter of 2018 compared to the prior quarter.

Q2 2018 vs Q2 2017. Noninterest income decreased by $295 thousand, or 20.6%, for the three months ended June 30, 2018 as compared to the three months ended June 30, 2017, primarily as a result of:

  • A decrease in other noninterest income attributable to recoveries of fees on previously charged off loans during the second quarter of 2017 for which similar level of recoveries did not occur during the second quarter of 2018; partially offset by
  • An increase in loan servicing and referral fees during the second quarter of 2018 as compared to the same period in 2017.

YTD 2018 vs YTD 2017. Noninterest income decreased $211 thousand, or 8.8%, for the six months ended June 30, 2018 as compared to the six months ended June 30, 2017, primarily as a result of:

  • A decrease in other noninterest income attributable to recoveries of fees on previously charged off loans during the second quarter of 2017 for which a similar level of recoveries did not occur during the six months ended June 30, 2018; partially offset by
  • An increase in loan servicing and referral fees during the six months ended June 30, 2018 as compared to the same period in 2017; and
  • An increase of $48 thousand in gain on the sale of securities available-for-sale during the six months ended June 30, 2018 as compared to the same period in 2017.

Noninterest Expense

Q2 2018 vs Q1 2018. Noninterest expense decreased $234 thousand, or 2.5%, for the three months ended June 30, 2018 as compared to the three months ended March 31, 2018, primarily as a result of:

  • A decrease of $113 thousand in our professional fees primarily related to the recovery of legal fees attributable to the payoff of a loan relationship in the second quarter of 2018 that was previously on nonaccrual status; and
  • A decrease of $244 thousand in salaries and employee benefits primarily related to a decrease in headcount and employee 401(k) forfeitures during the second quarter of 2018; partially offset by
  • An increase in various expense accounts related to the normal course of operating, including expenses related to charitable contributions and business development during the three months ended June 30, 2018 as compared to the three months ended March 31, 2018. 

Q2 2018 vs Q2 2017. Noninterest expense increased $37 thousand, or 0.4%, for the three months ended June 30, 2018 as compared to the three months ended June 30, 2017, primarily as a result of:

  • An increase of $254 thousand in salaries and employee benefits primarily related to an increase in employee compensation expense during the third quarter of 2017; and
  • An increase in various expense accounts related to the normal course of operating, including expenses related to charitable contributions, loan production and business development, during the three months ended June 30, 2018 as compared to the three months ended June 30, 2017; partially offset by
  • A decrease of $396 thousand in our professional fees primarily related to the recovery of legal fees attributable to the payoff of a loan relationship in the second quarter of 2018 that was previously on nonaccrual status.

YTD 2018 vs YTD 2017. Noninterest expense increased $357 thousand, or 1.9%, for the six months ended June 30, 2018 as compared to the six months ended June 30, 2017, primarily as a result of:

  • An increase of $701 thousand in salaries and employee benefits primarily related to an increase in employee compensation expense during the third quarter of 2017; and
  • An increase in various expense accounts related to the normal course of operating, including expenses related to charitable contributions, loan production and business development during the six months ended June 30, 2018 as compared to the six months ended June 30, 2017; partially offset by
  • A decrease of $756 thousand in our professional fees primarily related to lower legal fees in the first quarter of 2018 and the recovery of legal fees attributable to the payoff of a loan relationship in the second quarter of 2018 that was previously on nonaccrual status.

Income tax provision (benefit)

For both the three and six months ended June 30, 2018, we had an income tax benefit of $11.1 million, as a result of the release of our full valuation allowance of $11.1 million on our net deferred tax asset, discussed further below. Accounting rules specify that management must evaluate the deferred tax asset on a recurring basis to determine whether enough positive evidence exists to determine whether it is more-likely-than-not that the deferred tax asset will be available to offset or reduce future taxes.  The tax code allows net operating losses incurred prior to December 31, 2017 to be carried forward for 20 years from the date of the loss, and based on its evaluation, management believes that the Company will be able to realize the deferred tax asset within the period that our net operating losses may be carried forward.  Due to the hierarchy of evidence that the accounting rules specify, management determined that the valuation allowance that was previously established on the balance of our deferred tax asset was no longer required at June 30, 2018 and released the entire $11.1 million during the three months ended June 30, 2018.  The value of our deferred tax asset is computed based upon an estimate of taxable income for the full year of 2018, which will result in only minimal tax provision in subsequent quarters during 2018.

For the three months ended March 31, 2018, we had no provision for income tax recorded as a result of our full valuation allowance.  During the three months ended March 31, 2018, management evaluated the positive and negative evidence and determined that there continued to be enough negative evidence to support the full valuation allowance of $11.6 million at March 31, 2018.

For the three and six months ended June 30, 2017, we had income tax expense of $64 thousand and $113 thousand, respectively. The income tax expense for the three and six months ended June 30, 2017 represented the payment to the state of California for the cost of doing business within the state and an estimated alternative minimum tax payment. No additional income tax expense was recorded during the three and six months ended June 30, 2017 as a result of our full valuation allowance. During the six months ended June 30, 2017, management evaluated the positive and negative evidence and determined that there continued to be enough negative evidence to support the full valuation allowance of $21.6 million at June 30, 2017.

Balance Sheet Information

Loans

As indicated in the table below, at June 30, 2018, gross loans totaled approximately $1.1 billion, which represented a decrease of $1.2 million, or 0.1%, compared to gross loans outstanding at March 31, 2018, and a decrease of $5.6 million, or 0.5%, compared to gross loans outstanding at December 31, 2017. The following table sets forth the composition, by loan category, of our loan portfolio at June 30, 2018, March 31, 2018 and December 31, 2017.

The decrease of $1.2 million in gross loans during the second quarter of 2018 was primarily a result of loan sales of $15.1 million and loan payoffs partially offset by new loan growth and client acquisition. During the second quarter of 2018, we secured new commercial loan commitments of $48.3 million, of which $25.2 million were funded at June 30, 2018. Our total commercial loan commitments decreased to $625.8 million at June 30, 2018 from $629.4 million at March 31, 2018, while the utilization rate of commercial loan commitments increased to 64.1% at June 30, 2018 from 62.9% at March 31, 2018.

The increase in our total deposits from March 31, 2018 to June 30, 2018 is primarily attributable to an increase of $89.4 million in money market and savings deposits, partially offset by a decrease of $10.2 million in our checking accounts and a decrease of $25.4 million in our certificates of deposit. The increase in our core deposits is primarily the result of new client acquisition. The decrease in our certificates of deposit is primarily the result of our decision to keep the rates of interest offered on new and renewing certificates of deposit below the rates offered by many of the other banks against which we compete for these deposits. Lower priced core deposits increased to 73% of total deposits, while higher priced certificates of deposit decreased to 27% of total deposits at June 30, 2018, as compared to 69% and 31% of total deposits, respectively, at March 31, 2018.

Nonperforming assets at June 30, 2018 decreased $1.5 million from March 31, 2018 as a result of a decrease in non-performing loans in the second quarter of 2018. The decrease in our non-performing loans resulted from the payoff of one loan relationship totaling $1.6 million during the three months ended June 30, 2018.

Our classified assets decreased by $5.8 million from $20.6 million at March 31, 2018 to $14.8 million at June 30, 2018.  The decrease is primarily related to principal payments of $3.1 million, charge-offs of $355 thousand, and loans upgraded of $3.2 million during the three months ended June 30, 2018, partially offset by additions of $824 thousand during the same period.

At June 30, 2018, the allowance for loan and lease losses (“ALLL”) totaled $13.4 million, which was approximately $36 thousand less than at March 31, 2018 and $3.8 million less than at June 30, 2017.  The ALLL activity during the three months ended June 30, 2018 included net charge-offs of $36 thousand. There was no provision for loan and lease losses during the period, primarily attributable to a slight decrease in our loan portfolio during the three months ended June 30, 2018. The $355 thousand in gross charge-offs during the three months ended June 30, 2018 related to one loan relationship. The ratio of the ALLL-to-total loans outstanding as of June 30, 2018 was 1.26% as compared to 1.26% and 1.65% as of March 31, 2018 and June 30, 2017, respectively.

Capital Resources

At June 30, 2018, we had total regulatory capital on a consolidated basis of $159.7 million, and the Bank had total regulatory capital of $150.9 million.  The ratio of the Bank’s total capital-to-risk weighted assets, which is the principal federal bank regulatory measure of the financial strength of banking institutions, was 12.9% and, as a result, the Bank continued to be classified, under federal bank regulatory guidelines, as a “well-capitalized” banking institution, which is the highest of the capital standards established by federal banking regulatory authorities.

The following table sets forth the regulatory capital and capital ratios of the Company (on a consolidated basis) and the Bank (on a stand-alone basis) at June 30, 2018, as compared to the regulatory requirements that must be met for a banking institution to be rated as a well-capitalized institution.

Often, they include words such as “believe,” “expect,” “anticipate,” “intend,” “plan,” “estimate,” “project,” or words of similar meaning, or future or conditional verbs such as “will,” “would,” “should,” “could,” or “may.” Forward-looking statements are based on current information available to us and our assumptions about future events over which we do not have control.  Moreover, our business and our markets are subject to a number of risks and uncertainties which could cause our actual financial performance in the future, and the future performance of our markets (which can affect both our financial performance and the market prices of our shares), to differ, possibly materially, from our expectations as set forth in the forward-looking statements contained in this news release.

In addition to the risk of incurring loan losses and provision for loan losses, which is an inherent risk of the banking business, these risks and uncertainties include, but are not limited to, the following: the risk that the credit quality of our borrowers declines; potential declines in the value of the collateral for secured loans; the risk that steps we have taken to strengthen our overall credit administration are not effective; the risk of a downturn in the United States economy, and domestic or international economic conditions, which could cause us to incur additional loan losses and adversely affect our results of operations in the future; the risk that our interest margins and, therefore, our net interest income will be adversely affected by changes in prevailing interest rates; the risk of increases in our nonperforming assets, in which event we would face the prospect of further loan charge-offs and write-downs of assets; the risk that we will not be able to manage our interest rate risks effectively, in which event our operating results could be harmed; the prospect of changes in government regulation of banking and other financial services organizations, which could impact our costs of doing business and restrict our ability to take advantage of business and growth opportunities; the risk that our efforts to develop a robust commercial banking platform may not succeed; and the risk that we may be unable to realize our expected level of increasing deposit inflows.  Readers of this news release are encouraged to review the additional information regarding these and other risks and uncertainties to which our business is subject that is contained in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2017, which is on file with the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”). Additional information will be set forth in our Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the three months ended June 30, 2018, which we expect to file with the SEC during the third quarter of 2018, and readers of this release are urged to review the additional information that will be contained in that report.

Due to these and other risks and uncertainties to which our business is subject, you are cautioned not to place undue reliance on the forward-looking statements contained in this news release, which speak only as of its date, or to make predictions about our future financial performance based solely on our historical financial performance. We disclaim any obligation to update or revise any of the forward-looking statements as a result of new information, future events or otherwise, except as may be required by law.
