Avenue Financial Holdings, Inc. Announces Record Second Quarter Results

20:00 EDT 22 Jul 2015 | Globe Newswire

Second Quarter Net Income Up 33.6% to $1.6 Million

Loans Up 16.7% to a Record $800 Million

NASHVILLE, Tenn., July 23, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Avenue Financial Holdings, Inc. (NASDAQ:AVNU) ("Avenue Financial" or "the Company") announced record results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2015. Net income available to common stockholders rose 33.6% to $1.59 million compared with $1.19 million for the second quarter of 2014. Net income per diluted share increased 14.3% to $0.16 in the second quarter of 2015 compared with $0.14 in the second quarter of 2014. Total loans, including loans held for sale, rose 16.7% to a record $800 million in the second quarter of 2015 compared with $685.3 million at June 30, 2014.

"We are pleased with Avenue Financial's record performance in the second quarter," stated Ronald L. Samuels, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. "Our solid loan growth benefited from increased demand for commercial and industrial loans and loans to the small business market in the Nashville area. We also expanded our mortgage origination operations this year, resulting in record levels of mortgage banking income and gain on sales of mortgage loans. These contributed to our non-interest income more than doubling to almost $1.9 million compared with the second quarter of last year.

"We are also pleased with our strong balance sheet, sound asset quality and improved loan metrics. We reported a reduction in non-performing assets to total assets, continued reductions in other real estate owned, and we had no past due loans over 30 days as of the end of the second quarter. We remain focused on generating quality loan growth across our market segments.

"We expect Avenue Financial to post record results for 2015 based on the broad-based growth of the Nashville economy that is driving increased demand for commercial and industrial loans, commercial real estate loans and mortgage loans. We believe our Concierge banking team's proactive approach to assisting our clients will be an important part in growing our market share as we focus on commercial and private banking, along with our key vertical markets in music and entertainment, healthcare, and not-for-profit," continued Samuels.

Non-interest expense $6.82 $6.47 5.4% $5.86 16.4%
  • For the second quarter of 2015, net income available to common stockholders rose 33.6% to $1.59 million compared with $1.19 million for the second quarter of 2014. The increase was attributable primarily to growth in loan volume, increased fee income and gain on sale of loans and investments, offset slightly by higher provision for loan losses and noninterest expenses compared with the second quarter of 2014. Diluted net income per share rose 14.3% to $0.16 on 10.2 million weighted average shares outstanding in the second quarter of 2015 from $0.14 on 8.5 million weighted average shares outstanding in the second quarter of 2014. The 19.7% increase in weighted average shares outstanding is attributable to Avenue Financial's initial public stock offering in February 2015.
     
  • Net interest income increased 11.0% to $8.1 million for the second quarter of 2015, compared with $7.3 million for the second quarter of 2014 and was attributable primarily to growth in loans, offset partially by higher interest costs associated with $20.0 million in subordinated debt issued in December 2014. 
     
  • The tax equivalent net interest margin rose 6 basis points to 3.29% in the second quarter of 2015 compared with 3.23% in the first quarter of 2015. The increase was due primarily to growth in interest earning assets and loan fees over the past quarter. The yield on investments rose 3 basis points from the previous quarter and the cost of interest-bearing liabilities dropped 2 basis points to 0.68% from 0.70% for the first quarter of 2015. Cost of the subordinated debt was the primary driver for the 4 basis point reduction in the net interest margin compared with 3.33% reported for the second quarter of 2014.
     
  • Non-interest income increased 104.3%, or $960.0 thousand, to $1.9 million from $915 thousand at June 30, 2014. Avenue Financial reported growth in every major non-interest income category since last year that benefited from overall growth in assets, growth in number of customer accounts and volume related fees. Customer service fees rose 25.2% to $743.4 thousand, mortgage banking fees jumped 106.7% to $417.1 thousand, and cash surrender value of life insurance rose 51.0% to $183.5 thousand. Net gain on sales of bulk mortgage loans totaled $315.8 thousand in the second quarter of 2015. There were no comparable sales of bulk mortgage loans in the second quarter of 2014. Net gain on sale of securities rose to $215.2 thousand in the second quarter of 2015 compared with a loss of $2.1 thousand in the same quarter the prior year.
     
  • The provision for loan losses was $855.1 thousand for the second quarter of 2015, compared with $548.6 thousand for the second quarter of 2014. The increase was due primarily to higher net loan growth for this quarter compared with this same quarter last year. 
     
  • Non-interest expense for the second quarter of 2015 increased $349.7 thousand, or 5.4%, to $6.8 million from $6.5 million for the first quarter of 2015, and increased $961.1 thousand from the second quarter of 2014. The increase was due primarily to higher compensation costs related to growth in employee headcount, volume related costs attributable to loans, deposits, and data processing, and higher legal, accounting and insurance related to public company expenses. These increases were offset partially by a $120.0 thousand recovery on an operating loss taken in the fourth quarter of 2014. 

"We made progress on managing costs going forward with new contracts signed for core processing, portfolio management services and audit services," stated Samuels. "We believe these new contracts will help us contain costs as we continue to grow the bank."

Nonaccruing loans $0.776 $0.854 -9.1% $0.897 -13.5%
Ratio of non-performing assets to total assets 0.32% 0.35% -3BP 0.30% +2BP

Net loan charge-offs $0.213 $0.002 10,550.0% -$0.005 -4,360.0%
Allowance for loan losses $9.31 $8.67 7.4% $8.60 8.3%
  • Total asset quality improved in the second quarter compared with the first quarter of 2015 and second quarter of 2014 as measured by reductions in nonaccruing loans, non-performing loans to total assets and other real estate owned. Nonaccruing loans declined to $775.7 thousand, or 0.10% of total loans at June 30, 2015, compared with $853.8 thousand, or 0.12% of total loans, at March 31, 2015.  Our ratio of non-performing assets (nonaccruing loans plus other real estate owned) to total assets decreased to 0.32% at June 30, 2015, compared with 0.35% at March 31, 2015 due to a decrease in other real estate owned and growth in total assets. Total other real estate owned declined to $2.7 million at June 30, 2015 compared with $2.8 million at March 31, 2015 due to the sale of two properties totaling $128.5 thousand.  Avenue Financial expects further reductions in other real estate owned due to pending sales contracts that are expected to close in the third quarter of 2015. Troubled-debt restructurings declined slightly during the second quarter and now total $443.7 thousand at June 30, 2015 and include one loan.
     
  • Net loan charge-offs for the second quarter of 2015 were $212.6 thousand, or 0.12% of average loans for the quarter, compared with $1.9 thousand, or 0.00% of average loans for the quarter ended March 31, 2015. There were no past dues greater than 30 days at June 30, 2015.
     
  • The allowance for loan losses was $9.3 million, or 1.20% of loans, at June 30, 2015, compared with $8.7 million, or 1.21% of loans at March 31, 2015 and $8.6 million, or 1.27% of loans at June 30, 2014. The increase in the allowance for loan losses was due primarily to growth in the loan portfolio since last year.

"We expect to report continued growth in loans, deposits and earnings for the remainder of the year based on our existing pipeline for business and broad-based growth across our Nashville market," continued Samuels. "Our Concierge banking model is attracting new clients, new deposit accounts and new loan relationships. We also continue to earn a higher percentage of banking business from existing clients due to our high levels of customer service. We believe that continued progress in these areas will be key drivers to growing earnings and building future shareholder value," concluded Samuels.

The information set forth above contains certain financial information determined by methods other than in accordance with GAAP. These non-GAAP financial measures are "tangible book value per common share," "tangible common stockholders' equity," "efficiency ratio," and "tangible common stockholders' equity to tangible assets." Although we believe these non-GAAP financial measures provide a greater understanding of our business, these measures are not necessarily comparable to similar measures that may be presented by other companies.
"Efficiency ratio" is defined as non-interest expenses divided by our operating revenue, which is equal to net interest income plus non-interest income excluding gains and losses on sales of securities. In our judgment, the adjustments made to operating revenue allow investors and analysts to better assess our operating expenses in relation to our core operating revenue by removing the volatility that is associated with certain non-recurring items and other discrete items that are unrelated to our core business.
"Tangible common stockholders' equity" is defined as common stockholders' equity reduced by goodwill. We believe that this measure is important to many investors in the marketplace who are interested in changes from period to period in common stockholders' equity exclusive of changes in intangible assets. Goodwill, an intangible asset that is recorded in a purchase business combination, has the effect of increasing both common stockholders' equity and assets while not increasing our tangible common stockholders' equity or tangible assets.
"Tangible common stockholders' equity to tangible assets" is defined as the ratio of common stockholders' equity reduced by goodwill divided by total assets reduced by goodwill. We believe that this measure is important to many investors in the marketplace who are interested in relative changes from period to period in common stockholders' equity and total assets, each exclusive of changes in intangible assets. Goodwill, an intangible asset that is recorded in a purchase business combination, has the effect of increasing both common stockholders' equity and assets while not increasing our tangible common equity or tangible assets.
"Tangible book value per common share" is defined as tangible common stockholders' equity divided by total common shares outstanding. We believe that this measure is important to many investors in the marketplace who are interested in changes from period to period in book value per common share exclusive of changes in intangible assets. Goodwill, an intangible asset that is recorded in a purchase business combination, has the effect of increasing book value while not increasing our tangible book value.
The information provided below reconciles each non-GAAP measure to its most comparable GAAP measure.

(1) These measures are not measures recognized under generally accepted accounting principles (United States) ("GAAP"), and are therefore considered to be non-GAAP financial measures.
(2) Data has been annualized.
(3) Efficiency ratio is total non-interest expense divided by the sum of net interest income and total non-interest income, (excluding securities and loan sale gains/(losses)) and is not a GAAP measure.
(4) Non-performing assets are deemed to be nonaccruing loans and OREO.
(5) Return on average assets is defined as net income available to common stockholders divided by average total assets; Return on average common stockholders equity is defined by net income available to common stockholders divided by average common stockholders' equity.
(6) Capital ratios as of June 30, 2015 are estimated.
