Altabancorp (Nasdaq: ALTA) (the "Company" or "Alta"), the parent company of Altabank, reported net income of $11.3 million for the third quarter of 2020 compared with $10.3 million for the second quarter of 2020, and $11.1 million for the third quarter of 2019. Diluted earnings per common share were $0.60 for the third quarter of 2020 compared with $0.55 for the second quarter of 2020, and $0.59 for the third quarter of 2019.

Annualized return on average assets was 1.47% for the third quarter of 2020 compared with 1.52% for the second quarter of 2020, and 1.88% for the third quarter of 2019. Annualized return on average equity was 12.62% for the third quarter of 2020 compared with 12.06% for the second quarter of 2020, and 13.79% for the third quarter of 2019.

The Board of Directors declared a quarterly dividend payment of $0.15 per common share. The dividend will be payable on November 16, 2020 to shareholders of record as of November 9, 2020. The dividend payout ratio for earnings for the third quarter of 2020 was 24.9%. This continues the over 50-year trend of paying dividends by the Company.

"We are pleased with the results we achieved in the third quarter as we continue to actively manage the negative effects of the COVID-19 pandemic," said Len Williams, President and Chief Executive Officer of Altabancorp. "Our mortgage banking team is one area, in particular, that has performed well. Mortgage banking revenues grew 67% for the year compared with a year ago, reflecting strong refinance demand and higher margins due to decline in overall interest rates."

Mr. Williams continued, "Our strong balance sheet provides safety and security to our stakeholders as we work through the negative effects of the pandemic. We believe our balance sheet strength is reflected in the level of allowance for credit losses held by us, and our strong regulatory capital position. In addition, our focus to reduce loan concentrations in our ADC and commercial real estate portfolios and the tightening of our overall underwriting standards, over the past couple of years, will help to mitigate the potential negative effects the economic shutdown from the pandemic may have on our loan portfolio. Lastly, our strong liquidity position provides us the flexibility to aggressively grow our loan portfolio as the economy begins to recover.

"We continue to focus on the safety and stability of our associates and their families through the allocation of technology and resources to ensure that a majority of our associates are able to work from home. We have also enhanced cleaning protocols for our office spaces and branch locations to ensure that our associates and clients feel safe when they visit us. We continue to direct our attention to our clients, who were financially impacted by the pandemic. We have provided substantial financial relief to our clients through participation in government programs as well as our own payment relief programs. We expect to participate with additional funding for SBA PPP loans, if passed by the Federal Government. We will continue to work together with our clients to ensure that we can provide financial solutions to assist them on their path to recovery as we all work to overcome the pandemic."

COVID-19 Pandemic and Utah Economy

The State of Utah has developed a COVID-19 Transmission Index ("Transmission Index"), which categorizes levels of transmission as High, Moderate, or Low. Each county receives a rating every week. The Company’s COVID-19 pandemic response plan directly correlates to the State’s Transmission Index. The counties where our branches are located presently have a Transmission Index of Moderate or greater. As a result, all of our branch lobbies are available by appointment only, while our drive-up windows remain open. To ensure the safety of our associates and clients, we require masks to be worn in all branch locations and in our back office locations, when associates are unable to socially distance from other associates. Approximately 60% of our workforce remains working from home and will continue to do so until the Transmission Index in the corresponding county moves to Low.

The Company is fortunate to operate in a region that appears to be weathering the COVID-19 pandemic fairly well economically. The Utah economy has performed better than the nation as a whole during the pandemic with the Utah unemployment rate at 5.0% at the end of September 2020 compared with 7.9% for the nation for the same period. Commercial and consumer construction activities remain strong with overall construction jobs increasing 6.6% year-over-year. Utah’s total personal income rose 4.3% in the first quarter of 2020 compared with the first quarter of 2019. Utah’s growth rate ranked seventh in the nation. Nationally, personal income only increased 3.3% over the same period. Utah’s house prices were up 1.28% in the second quarter of 2020 from the first quarter of 2020.

The Company expects that the Utah economy will continue to perform better than most states in the U.S.

Small Business Administration Paycheck Protection Program ("SBA PPP")

The Company funded 333 loans, totaling $84.6 million under the SBA‘s PPP loan program. As of the date of this earnings release, the Company has filed 62 applications, or 19%, with the SBA, totaling $19.0 million and has received loan forgiveness on 15 loans, totaling $0.8 million. As of the date of this earnings release, the Company has not received a denial on any application submitted to the SBA for loan forgiveness. The Company is participating in the PPPL facility offered by the Federal Reserve to fund SBA PPP loans and to receive regulatory capital relief for such loans. The Company expects to have most of its SBA PPP loans forgiven by the end of the second quarter 2021.

Loan Accommodations

The Company offered a temporary loan payment relief program of deferments up to six months to borrowers impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. Under rare circumstances, deferred loans will be re-evaluated at the end of the deferral period. To qualify for a second loan deferral, the Company will require a full re-underwriting of the credit.

As of the date of this earnings release, the Company offered temporary loan payment relief to 415 businesses and 108 individuals totaling approximately $320 million, or 18.5% of total loans, excluding SBA PPP loans, to address cash flow challenges for those impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. To the date of this earning release, the deferral period had ended for 237 borrowers, or 45.49%, for loans totaling $128 million. This leaves 284 borrowers, or 54.51%, for loans totaling $191 million still on deferral. There are only four borrowers on small balance loans totaling $0.07 million, who have not made a subsequent loan payment for 30 days or greater, after their payment deferment agreement expired. We have not entered into another loan payment deferment agreement with any borrower, who has entered into a previous loan payment deferment agreement. Since these loans were performing loans that were current on their payments prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, these modifications are not considered to be troubled debt restructurings pursuant to applicable accounting and regulatory guidance.

Loan Credit Quality Trends

Non-performing loans decreased to $6.9 million at September 30, 2020 compared with $8.8 million at December 31, 2019. Non-performing loans to total loans were 0.41% at September 30, 2020 compared with 0.53% at December 31, 2019. Non-performing assets decreased to $6.9 million at September 30, 2020 compared with $8.8 million at December 31, 2019. Non-performing assets to total assets were 0.22% at September 30, 2020 compared with 0.37% at December 31, 2019.

Allowance for Credit Losses

The allowance for credit losses increased $11.0 million, or 36.18%, to $41.5 million at September 30, 2020 compared with $30.5 million the same period a year ago. The allowance for credit losses to loans held for investment was 2.45% at September 30, 2020 compared with 1.82% at September 30, 2019.

Loans

Loans held for investment grew $22.0 million, or 1.3%, to $1.70 billion at September 30, 2020 compared with $1.68 billion at September 30, 2019. Quarter-to-date average loans increased $11.6 million, or 0.69%, to $1.69 billion for the three months ended September 30, 2020 compared with $1.68 billion for the three months ended September 30, 2019. Loans held for sale increased $12.3 million, or 63.00%, to $31.9 million at September 30, 2020 because of increased mortgage loan volume.

Deposits and Liabilities

Total deposits increased $615 million, or 29.27%, to $2.72 billion at September 30, 2020 compared with $2.10 billion at September 30, 2019. Non-interest bearing deposits increased, $261 million, or 33.58%, to $1.0 billion at September 30, 2020 compared with the same period a year earlier, and interest bearing deposits increased, $354 million, or 26.73%, to $1.68 billion at September 30, 2020 compared with the same period a year ago. Non-interest-bearing deposits to total deposits were 38.21% as of September 30, 2020 compared with 36.97% as of September 30, 2019.

Shareholders’ Equity

Shareholders’ equity increased by $37.6 million, or 11.64%, to $360 million at September 30, 2020 compared with $323 million at September 30, 2019. The increase resulted primarily from net income earned during the intervening periods; change in accumulated other comprehensive income resulting from changes in the fair market value of investment securities available for sale, due to a decline in overall interest rates; and cash dividends paid to shareholders.

The Company’s Leverage capital ratio was 10.87% at September 30, 2020 compared with 12.64% at September 30, 2019. The total risk-based capital ratio was 19.13% at September 30, 2020 compared with 17.88% at September 30, 2019. The Company’s regulatory capital ratios were negatively impacted by the adoption of ASU 2016-13 ("CECL") and the Company election to take the full impact of such adoption against its regulatory capital ratios during the first quarter of 2020.

Net Interest Income and Margin

For the three months ended September 30, 2020, net interest income decreased $2.4 million, or 8.50%, to $25.8 million compared with $28.2 million for the same period a year earlier. The decrease is primarily the result of net interest margins narrowing 152 basis points to 3.52% for the same comparable periods. The narrowing of net interest margins is primarily the result of the Federal Reserve reducing benchmark rates to almost zero and an increase in the average amount of lower yielding cash and investment securities held by the Company stemming from average core deposits increasing $592 million, or 29.48%, for the same respective periods offset by average interest earning assets increasing $696 million, or 31.33%, to $2.92 billion for the same comparable periods. The percentage of average loans to total average interest earning assets decreased to 58.11% for the three months ended September 30, 2020 compared with 75.80% for the same period a year earlier.

Yields on interest earning assets declined 171 basis points to 3.74% for the three months ended September 30, 2020 compared with 5.45% for the same period a year earlier. The decline in yields on interest earning assets is primarily the result of the average amount of cash and investment securities held by the Company increasing $684 million, or 128%, to $1.22 billion for the same comparable periods with the yield on cash and securities declining 70 basis points to 1.49% for the third quarter of 2020 compared with 2.19% for the same comparable periods. In addition, the yield on loans declined 112 basis points to 5.37% compared with 6.49% for the same comparable periods. Average loans outstanding increased $11.6 million, or 0.69%, to $1.69 billion for the same comparable periods.

For the three months ended September 30, 2020, total cost of interest bearing liabilities decreased 32 basis points to 0.38% compared with 0.70% for the same period a year earlier, and is primarily the result of the cost of interest bearing deposits decreasing 32 basis points to 0.38% compared with 0.70% for the same period a year ago. For the three months ended September 30, 2020, the total cost of funds decreased 20 basis points to 0.25% compared with 0.45% for the same period a year ago.

For the three months ended September 30, 2020, acquisition accounting adjustments, including the accretion of loan discounts and fair value amortization on time deposits, added 7 basis points to net interest margin.

For the nine months ended September 30, 2020, net interest income decreased $4.0 million, or 4.84%, to $78.8 million compared with $82.8 million for the same period a year earlier. The decrease is primarily the result of net interest margins narrowing 115 basis points to 4.04% for the same comparable periods. The narrowing of net interest margins is primarily the result of the Federal Reserve reducing benchmark rates to almost zero and an increase in the average amount of lower yielding cash and investment securities held by the Company stemming from average core deposits increasing $407 million, or 21.05%, for the same respective periods offset by average interest earning assets increasing $472 million, or 22.08%, to $2.61 billion for the same comparable periods. The percentage of average loans to total average interest earning assets decreased to 64.80% for the nine months ended September 30, 2020 compared with 78.76% for the same period a year earlier.

Yields on interest earning assets declined 130 basis points to 4.32% for the nine months ended September 30, 2020 compared with 5.62% for the same period a year earlier. The decline in yields on interest earning assets is primarily the result of the average amount of cash and investment securities held by the Company increasing $464 million, or 103%, to $915 million for the same comparable periods with the yield on cash and securities decreasing 38 basis points to 1.28% for the same comparable periods. In addition, the yield on loans declined 80 basis points for the same comparable periods and average loans outstanding increased $7.4 million, or 0.44%, to $1.69 billion for the same comparable periods.

For the nine months ended September 30, 2020, total cost of interest bearing liabilities decreased 25 basis points to 0.47% compared with 0.72% for the same period a year earlier, and is the result of the cost of short-term borrowings decreasing 228 basis points to 0.35%, as well as cost of interest bearing deposits decreasing 24 basis points to 0.48% compared with 0.72% for the same period a year ago. For the nine months ended September 30, 2020, the total cost of funds decreased 16 basis points to 0.31% compared with 0.47% for the same period a year ago.

For the nine months ended September 30, 2020, acquisition accounting adjustments, including the accretion of loan discounts and fair value amortization on time deposits, added 9 basis points to net interest margin.

Provision for Credit Losses

For the three months ended September 30, 2020, the Company did not record any provision for credit losses compared with $2.1 million for the same period a year earlier as calculated under the prior incurred loss methodology. The provisions for the current and preceding two quarters reflect expected lifetime credit losses based upon the current conditions and the potential effects from forecasted deterioration of economic metrics due to the COVID-19 pandemic based on the outlook as of September 30, 2020. The decrease in provision for loan losses in the three months ended September 30, 2020 compared with the same period a year earlier is due primarily to an $11 million, or 60.18%, decline in loans individually evaluated for impairment to $7.4 million and the related allowance for impairment of $4.4 million offset by a $49 million, or 3.00%, increase in loans collectively evaluated for impairment to $1.6 billion and the related allowance of $37.1 million. For the three months ended September 30, 2020, the Company incurred net charge-offs of $1.2 million compared with net recoveries of $0.3 million for the same period a year ago.

For the nine months ended September 30, 2020, provision for credit losses was $2.8 million compared with $5.8 million for the same period a year earlier as calculated under the prior incurred loss methodology. For the nine months ended September 30, 2020, the Company incurred net charge-offs of $2.1 million compared with net charge-offs of $0.6 million for the same period a year ago.

"Our overall asset quality trends have improved throughout 2020 and charge-offs across our portfolios have remained relatively low," said Mark Olson, Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer of Altabancorp. "We expect to see asset quality trends begin to deteriorate and charge-offs to increase beginning in 2021 as the positive effects of government stimulus and loan payment relief programs come to an end. We believe the allowance for credit losses is adequate to cover our current expected credit losses. However, we will continue to closely monitor macroeconomic conditions and the overall performance of our loan portfolio to determine if we should adjust our expectations of credit losses."

Noninterest Income

For the three months ended September 30, 2020, noninterest income increased $1.7 million, or 36.94%, to $6.1 million compared with $4.5 million the same period a year ago. The increase was primarily due to a $1.7 million, or 81.95%, increase in mortgage banking income to $3.9 million compared with $2.1 million for the same period a year ago resulting from higher volume and wider margins on loans sold, which was favorably impacted by an increase in mortgage loan refinances, as overall interest rates declined.

For the nine months ended September 30, 2020, noninterest income increased $4.6 million, or 40.09%, to $15.97 million compared with $11.4 million for the same period a year earlier. The increase in noninterest income was primarily due to a $3.4 million, or 66.78%, increase in mortgage banking income and a $1.4 million gain on the sale of investment securities.

"We expect to continue to see improving noninterest income as we expand our mortgage banking operations both in Utah and surrounding states and reap the benefits of a significant investment in the technology used in our mortgage operations from an operational efficiency and enhanced client experience perspective," said Mr. Williams.

Noninterest Expense

For the three months ended September 30, 2020, noninterest expense was $16.9 million compared with $16.1 million for the same period a year earlier. For the three months ended September 30, 2020, the Company’s efficiency ratio was 52.86% compared with 49.20% for the same period a year ago.

For the nine months ended September 30, 2020, noninterest expense was $49.3 million compared with $45.7 million for the same period a year earlier. For the nine months ended September 30, 2020, the Company’s efficiency ratio was 52.02% compared with 48.49% for the same period a year ago.

The increase in noninterest expense for both the three and nine months ended September 30, 2020 was primarily the result of higher salaries and associate benefits resulting primarily from higher incentive payments, particularly in the mortgage banking division. In addition, the Company has incurred higher data processing expenses due to investments made in new technologies for the mortgage banking division; technology investments made in the commercial banking division, including costs for its cloud-based, commercial loan origination application (nCino), including automated processes for smaller ticket commercial loans (titled Altaexpress), costs for the implementation of a Salesforce CRM solution, costs for a new cloud-based, commercial client treasury management solution; and costs for a new cloud-based, construction budget, draw and inspection management solution for both commercial and consumer clients. The Company expects to continue to make significant investments in new technologies to enhance its client’s experience and empower clients to transact more business on its mobile platform; to lower the overall costs of its operating platform; and to become more scalable as the Company aggressively evaluates acquisition opportunities.

Noninterest expense also increased from higher marketing and advertising expenses, because of continued efforts to improve overall brand recognition in the regional markets in which the Company operates.

"We anticipate overall interest rates to remain near zero for the foreseeable future," said Mr. Olson. "As a result, we continue to review our overall operating costs to determine how we can better leverage our platform, while retaining our high-touch client experience. We anticipate making changes over the next several quarters to improve our operating leverage."

Income Tax Provision

For the three months ended September 30, 2020, income tax expense was $3.7 million compared with $3.4 million for the same period a year earlier. For the three months ended September 30, 2020, the effective tax rate was 24.62% compared with 23.15% for the same period a year ago.

For the nine months ended September 30, 2020, income tax expense was $10.3 million compared with $10.1 million for the same period a year earlier. For the nine months ended September 30, 2020, the effective tax rate was 24.05% compared with 23.65% for the same period a year ago.
