25 min read

(MENAFN – GlobeNewsWire – Nasdaq) RED BANK, N.J., Jan. 28, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — OceanFirst Financial Corp. (NASDAQ:’OCFC’), (the ‘Company’), the holding company for OceanFirst Bank N.A. (the ‘Bank’), today announced net income available to common stockholders of $32.1 million, or $0.54 per diluted share, for the quarter ended December 31, 2020, as compared to $23.5 million, or $0.47 per diluted share, for the corresponding prior year quarter. For the year ended December 31, 2020, the Company reported net income available to common stockholders of $61.2 million, or $1.02 per diluted share, as compared to $88.6 million, or $1.75 per diluted share, for the corresponding prior year. The quarter and annual results were impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic, through higher credit losses, net interest margin compression and increased operating expenses.

Core earnings for the quarter and year ended December 31, 2020 amounted to $23.2 million and $72.2 million, respectively, or $0.39 and $1.20 per diluted share, respectively.

Core earnings are non-GAAP (‘generally accepted accounting principles’) measures. For the periods presented they exclude merger related expenses, branch consolidation expenses, net (gain) loss on equity investments, Federal Home Loan Bank (‘FHLB’) advance prepayment fees, gain on sale of Paycheck Protection Program (‘PPP’) loans, the opening credit loss expense under the Current Expected Credit Loss (‘CECL’) model related to the acquisitions of Two River Bancorp (‘Two River’) and Country Bank Holding Company, Inc. (‘Country Bank’), non-recurring professional fees, compensation expense due to the retirement of an executive officer, and income tax benefit related to change in the New Jersey tax code (collectively referred to as ‘non-core’ operations). Non-core operations had a favorable impact of $8.9 million, net of tax, and an unfavorable impact of $11.0 million, net of tax, to GAAP earnings for the quarter and year ended December 31, 2020, respectively. Refer to the ‘Explanation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures’ and the ‘Non-GAAP Reconciliation’ table for additional information regarding our non-GAAP measures and impact per period.

Key developments for the recent quarter and year are described below:

  • Earnings: Achieved record quarterly GAAP earnings of $32.1 million, with diluted earnings per share increasing by 15%, to $0.54, as compared to the corresponding prior year quarter.
  • Balance sheet: The Company ended 2020 with a strengthened balance sheet driven by a series of successfully executed strategic decisions throughout the year. As a result of these initiatives, tangible book value per share increased to $14.98 from $14.58 in the prior linked quarter and tangible stockholders’ equity to tangible assets ratio improved to 8.79% from 8.41% in the prior linked quarter. Highlights include:

○ The creation of a yield-focused debt and equity portfolio, which resulted in $23.6 million of net gains in the fourth quarter;
○ The sale of $298.1 million in PPP loans, which resulted in gains of $5.1 million;
○ The extinguishment of $343.5 million in high-cost borrowings with an average rate of 1.63%, providing a tailwind heading into 2021;
○ Total loan growth for the year was $1.54 billion, reflecting bank acquisitions and record loan originations of $2.23 billion (including PPP loan originations), partly offset by loan sales of $612.3 million. Deposits increased $3.10 billion for the year, including $1.51 billion of organic growth.

  • Loan forbearance: COVID-19 related loans under full forbearance have been substantially resolved, which allows the Bank to focus on organic growth and gain earnings momentum in 2021.

‘I’m pleased to announce record GAAP quarterly earnings of $32.1 million, completing a year which began with the closing of two whole bank acquisitions and quickly became a year filled with challenges to support our customers and communities during an unprecedented health crisis,’ said Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Christopher D. Maher. Mr. Maher added, ‘OceanFirst is well positioned for 2021 as our customers look forward to the opportunities that are on the horizon and our Country works to recover from the pandemic. At OceanFirst, we remain committed to growing our Company and will continue to focus on maintaining strong credit, fostering margin expansion, and controlling operating expenses while seeking growth opportunities.’

The Company expects to consolidate four branches in the second quarter, with an expected $1.1 million in annual savings. The latest branch consolidations bring the total number of branches consolidated to 57 over the past five years, helping to drive a targeted average branch size of $160 million.

The Company’s Board of Directors declared its ninety-sixth consecutive quarterly cash dividend on common stock. The quarterly cash dividend on common stock of $0.17 per share will be paid on February 19, 2021 to stockholders of record on February 8, 2021. The Board previously declared a quarterly cash dividend on preferred stock of $0.4375 per depository share, representing 1/40th interest in the Company’s Series A Preferred Stock. This dividend will be paid on February 15, 2021 to preferred stockholders of record on January 29, 2021.

Results of Operations

On January 31, 2019, the Company completed its acquisition of Capital Bank of New Jersey (‘Capital Bank’) and its results of operations are included in the consolidated results for the quarter and year ended December 31, 2020, but are excluded from the results of operations for the period from January 1, 2019 to January 31, 2019.

On January 1, 2020, the Company completed its acquisitions of Two River and Country Bank and their respective results of operations from January 1, 2020 through December 31, 2020 are included in the consolidated results for the quarter and year ended December 31, 2020, but are not included in the results of operations for the corresponding prior year periods.

Net income was favorably impacted by $8.9 million, net of tax, and adversely impacted by $2.3 million, net of tax, of non-core operations for the quarters ended December 31, 2020 and 2019, respectively. Net income was adversely impacted by $11.0 million, net of tax, and $16.3 million, net of tax, of non-core operations for the years ended December 31, 2020 and 2019, respectively. Core earnings for the quarter and year ended December 31, 2020 were $23.2 million and $72.2 million, respectively, representing a decrease from core earnings of $25.7 million and $104.8 million, respectively, for the same prior year periods. The decrease as compared to the prior periods was largely driven by the adverse impact of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Net Interest Income and Margin

Net interest income for the quarter and year ended December 31, 2020 increased to $77.9 million and $313.0 million, respectively, as compared to $63.4 million and $256.0 million, respectively, for the same prior year periods, reflecting an increase in interest-earning assets, partly offset by a reduction in net interest margin. Average interest-earning assets increased by $3.21 billion and $2.82 billion for the quarter and year ended December 31, 2020, respectively, as compared to the same prior year periods. The averages for the quarter and year ended December 31, 2020, were favorably impacted by $1.65 billion and $1.75 billion, respectively, of interest-earning assets acquired from Two River and Country Bank and $77.5 million and $227.5 million, respectively, of interest-earning assets from PPP loans. Average loans receivable, net of allowance for credit losses, increased by $1.83 billion and $2.15 billion for the quarter and year ended December 31, 2020, respectively, as compared to the same prior year periods. The increases attributable to the acquisition of Two River and Country Bank for the quarter and year ended December 31, 2020 were $1.46 billion and $1.55 billion, respectively. The net interest margin for the quarter and year ended December 31, 2020 decreased to 2.97% and 3.16%, respectively, from 3.48% and 3.62%, respectively, for the same prior year periods. The compression in net interest margin is primarily due to the lower interest rate environment, the origination of low-yielding PPP loans, and the excess balance sheet liquidity which the Company strategically accumulated entering the economic downturn. For the quarter and the year ended December 31, 2020, the cost of average interest-bearing liabilities decreased to 0.74% and 0.88%, respectively, from 0.98% and 0.96%, respectively, in the corresponding prior year periods. The total cost of deposits (including non-interest bearing deposits) was 0.45% and 0.55% for the quarter and year ended December 31, 2020, respectively, as compared to 0.64% and 0.61%, respectively, in the same prior year periods.

Net interest income for the quarter ended December 31, 2020, increased by $1.1 million, as compared to the prior linked quarter, while net interest margin remained steady at 2.97%, as compared to the prior linked quarter. The yield on average interest-earning assets decreased to 3.53% from 3.60% in the prior linked quarter, primarily due to increasing balance sheet liquidity. The total cost of deposits (including non-interest bearing deposits) was 0.45% for the quarter ended December 31, 2020, as compared to 0.49% in the prior linked quarter.

Provision for Credit Losses

For the quarter and year ended December 31, 2020, the provision for credit loss expense was $4.1 million and $59.4 million, respectively, as compared to $355,000 and $1.6 million, respectively, for the corresponding prior year periods, and $35.7 million in the prior linked quarter. Credit loss expense for the year ended December 31, 2020 was significantly influenced by economic conditions related to the COVID-19 pandemic, as well as estimates of how those conditions may impact the Company’s borrowers, and the decision to sell higher risk commercial loans in the third quarter of 2020. At December 31, 2020, COVID-19 related loans under full forbearance have been substantially resolved.

Net loan charge-offs were $2.9 million and $18.9 million for the quarter and year ended December 31, 2020, respectively, as compared to net loan charge-offs of $139,000 and $1.4 million, respectively, in the corresponding prior year periods, and net loan charge-offs of $15.0 million in the prior linked quarter. The three months ended December 31, 2020 included $2.3 million of charge-offs related to the sale of under-performing residential and consumer loans. The year ended December 31, 2020 included $14.6 million of charge-offs related to the sale of higher risk commercial loans and $3.3 million of charge-offs related to the sale of under-performing residential and consumer loans. Non-performing loans held-for-investment totaled $36.4 million at December 31, 2020, as compared to $29.9 million at September 30, 2020, and $17.8 million at December 31, 2019.

Non-interest Income

For the quarter and year ended December 31, 2020, other income increased to $40.6 million and $73.9 million, respectively, as compared to $11.2 million and $42.2 million, respectively, for the corresponding prior year periods. Other income for the quarter and year ended December 31, 2020 included $29.6 million and $26.0 million, respectively, of net gains related to non-core operations.

The primary contributor to other income for the quarter and year ended December 31, 2020 was gains earned on equity investments. The Company implemented several programs in 2020 to invest excess liquidity in high quality interest or dividend bearing securities. In August 2020, the Company began purchasing select financial services institutions’ common stocks paying attractive dividends. The positive performance of the portfolio drove the decision to liquidate all of the positions in December 2020 and January 2021, which resulted in an additional $8.1 million of net gains recorded in January 2021.

Excluding the impact of non-core operations, the change in other income for the quarter ended December 31, 2020 over the prior year was due to Two River and Country Bank acquisitions which added $439,000. The remaining decrease in other income for the quarter ended December 31, 2020, compared to the corresponding prior year period, was due to decreases in commercial loan swap income of $1.9 million and fees and service charges of $1.2 million, partly offset by an increase in net gain on sale of loans of $1.0 million, and net gain on real estate operations of $695,000.

Excluding the impact of non-core operations, the change in other income for the year ended December 31, 2020 over the prior year was due to Two River and Country Bank acquisitions which added $2.8 million. The remaining increase in other income was due to increases in commercial loan swap income of $2.8 million, net gain on sales of loans of $2.5 million, net gain on real estate operations of $981,000, and bankcard services of $577,000, partly offset by a decrease in fees and service charges of $4.4 million. The waiver of certain fees during the COVID-19 pandemic may continue to suppress deposit fee income for the remainder of the public health crisis.

Excluding the impact of non-core operations, other income for the quarter ended December 31, 2020, decreased $723,000 as compared to the prior linked quarter. The decrease was primarily related to a decrease in commercial loan swap income of $1.3 million.

Non-interest Expense

Operating expenses increased to $70.9 million and $246.4 million for the quarter and year ended December 31, 2020, respectively, as compared to $47.6 million and $189.1 million, respectively, in the same prior year periods. Operating expenses for the quarter and year ended December 31, 2020 included $17.9 million and $37.8 million, respectively, of net expenses related to non-core operations. Operating expenses for the quarter and year ended December 31, 2019 included $5.3 million and $22.8 million, respectively, of net expenses related to non-core operations. Excluding the impact of non-core operations, the change in operating expenses over the prior year was due to Two River and Country Bank acquisitions, which added $6.3 million and $29.3 million for the quarter and year ended December 31, 2020, respectively. The remaining increase in operating expenses for the quarter ended December 31, 2020 was due to increases in federal deposit insurance expense of $1.4 million, compensation and benefits expense of $1.4 million, professional fees of $1.3 million, and operating expenses attributable to the COVID-19 pandemic of $707,000. The increase in operating expenses for the year ended December 31, 2020 was due to increases in compensation and benefits expense of $7.6 million, operating expenses attributable to the COVID-19 pandemic of $4.5 million, professional fees of $3.6 million, and federal deposit insurance expense of $2.0 million, partly offset by decreases in equipment expense of $1.8 million, occupancy expense of $1.6 million, and check card processing of $680,000.

For the quarter ended December 31, 2020, operating expenses, excluding net expenses related to non-core operations, increased $252,000 as compared to the prior linked quarter. The increase was due to increases in other operating expense of $788,000, federal deposit insurance expense of $648,000, and professional fees of $583,000, partly offset by decreases in compensation and benefits expense of $1.1 million and operating expenses attributable to the COVID-19 pandemic of $1.0 million.

Income Tax Expense

The provision for income taxes was $10.4 million and $17.7 million for the quarter and year ended December 31, 2020, respectively, as compared to $3.2 million and $18.8 million, respectively, for the same prior year periods. The effective tax rate was 24.0% and 21.9% for the quarter and year ended December 31, 2020, respectively, as compared to 11.9% and 17.5%, respectively, for the same prior year periods. The higher effective tax rates for the quarter and year ended December 31, 2020 are due to the adverse impacts of a New Jersey tax code change and a higher allocation of taxable income to New York due to the acquisition of Country Bank. The lower tax rates in the prior year periods were also due to the reduction in income tax expense of $2.2 million from the revaluation of state deferred tax assets as a result of the change in New Jersey tax code. Excluding the impact of the New Jersey tax code change, the effective tax rate for the quarter and year ended December 31, 2019 was 20.2% and 19.6%.

Financial Condition

Total assets increased by $3.20 billion to $11.45 billion at December 31, 2020, from $8.25 billion at December 31, 2019, primarily as a result of the acquisitions of Two River and Country Bank, which added $2.03 billion to total assets. Cash and due from banks increased by $1.15 billion to $1.27 billion at December 31, 2020, from $120.5 million at December 31, 2019, due to increased deposits, the Company’s decision to build liquidity during the economic downturn, the cash received from the issuance of subordinated notes and non-cumulative perpetual preferred stock as described below, and the cash received from loan sales throughout the year. Loans receivable, net of allowance for credit losses, increased by $1.50 billion, to $7.70 billion at December 31, 2020, from $6.21 billion at December 31, 2019, primarily due to acquired loans from Two River and Country Bank of $1.56 billion. As part of the acquisitions of Two River and Country Bank, the Company’s goodwill balance increased to $500.3 million at December 31, 2020, from $374.6 million at December 31, 2019 and core deposit intangibles increased to $23.7 million, from $15.6 million. Other assets increased by $39.4 million to $209.0 million at December 31, 2020, from $169.5 million at December 31, 2019, primarily due to an increase in swap positions.

Deposits increased by $3.10 billion, to $9.43 billion at December 31, 2020, from $6.33 billion at December 31, 2019, primarily due to acquired deposits from Two River and Country Bank of $1.59 billion and organic deposit growth of $1.51 billion. The loan-to-deposit ratio at December 31, 2020 was 82.3%, as compared to 98.2% at December 31, 2019. The Company utilized the excess liquidity to prepay all FHLB advances in the fourth quarter of 2020, bringing the balance to $0 at December 31, 2020 from $519.3 million at December 31, 2019. The increase in other borrowings of $138.7 million to $235.5 million at December 31, 2020, from $96.8 at December 31, 2019, primarily resulted from the May 2020 issuance of $125.0 million in subordinated notes at an initial rate of 5.25% and a stated maturity of May 15, 2030. Other liabilities increased by $92.7 million to $155.3 million at December 31, 2020, from $62.6 million at December 31, 2019, primarily due to an increase in swap positions.

Stockholders’ equity increased to $1.48 billion at December 31, 2020, as compared to $1.15 billion at December 31, 2019. The acquisitions of Two River and Country Bank added $261.4 million to stockholders’ equity. During the three months ended June 30, 2020, the Company raised $55.7 million from the issuance of 7.0% fixed-to-floating rate non-cumulative perpetual preferred stock, with a par value of $0.01 and a liquidation price of $1,000 per share. Under the Company’s stock repurchase program, there were 2,019,145 shares available for repurchase at December 31, 2020. The Company had suspended its repurchase activity on February 28, 2020, and has determined to recommence repurchases under its existing stock repurchase plan beginning February 1, 2021. For the year ended December 31, 2020, the Company repurchased 648,851 shares under the repurchase program at a weighted average cost of $22.83.

Asset Quality

The Company’s non-performing loans held-for-investment totaled $36.4 million at December 31, 2020, as compared to $29.9 million at September 30, 2020, and $17.8 million at December 31, 2019. Non-performing loans held-for-investment do not include $48.5 million of purchased with credit deterioration (‘PCD’) loans acquired in the Two River, Country Bank, Capital Bank, Sun Bancorp, Inc. (‘Sun’), Ocean Shore Holding Co. (‘Ocean Shore’), Cape Bancorp, Inc. (‘Cape’), and Colonial American Bank (‘Colonial American’) acquisitions.

COVID-19 related loans under full forbearance have been substantially resolved and returned to payment terms. The Company’s special mention and substandard loans were $360.2 million as of December 31, 2020, as compared to $317.4 million as of September 30, 2020 and $107.7 million as of December 31, 2019. The increase as compared to the prior year reflects the addition of Two River and Country Bank portfolios, as well as borrowers that have been negatively impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic which primarily occurred during the third quarter as Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security (‘CARES’) Act forbearance periods ended. A significant majority of these borrowers are current on their loan payments. The Company’s non-accrual loans as of December 31, 2020 were 0.47% of total loans, as compared to 0.37% as of September 30, 2020 and 0.29% as of December 31, 2019.

At December 31, 2020, the Company’s allowance for credit losses was 0.78% of total loans, an increase from 0.27% at December 31, 2019. The allowance for credit losses does not reflect the net unamortized credit mark of $28.0 million. The allowance for credit losses plus the unamortized credit mark amounted to $88.7 million, or 1.14% of loans held-for-investment. The allowance for credit losses as a percent of total non-performing loans held-for-investment was 166.81% at December 31, 2020, as compared to 94.41% at December 31, 2019.
