Net Interest Income

Net interest income was $137.4 million for the fourth quarter of 2022. This represented a $4.1 million, or 3.04%, increase from the third quarter of 2022, and a $35.0 million, or 34.18%, increase from the fourth quarter of 2021. The quarter-over-quarter growth in net interest income was primarily due to the expansion of the net interest margin from 3.46% in the third quarter of 2022 to 3.69% for the fourth quarter of 2022. The year-over-year increase in net interest income was primarily due to a 90 basis point expansion of the net interest margin. Total interest income was $142.1 million for the fourth quarter of 2022, which was $6.9 million, or 5.13%, higher than the third quarter of 2022. The increase in interest income from the third quarter of 2022 to the fourth quarter was primarily the result of a 31 basis point expansion in earning asset yield. Interest expense increased $2.9 million, from the prior quarter, due partially to a $1.0 million increase in interest expense on deposits, as a result of a 9 basis point increase in the cost of interest-bearing deposits. Interest expense also increased from the prior quarter by $1.8 million due to average overnight borrowings of approximately $160 million during the fourth quarter of 2022. In comparison to the fourth quarter of 2021, interest income grew by $38.6 million, or 37.27%, through a combination of $121.1 million of growth in average earnings assets and expansion on the yield for earning assets of 100 basis points. Year-over-year earning asset growth resulted from both the acquisition of Suncrest Bank (“Suncrest”) on January 7, 2022, in addition to core loan growth and a nearly $1.0 billion increase in the average investment portfolio over the prior year quarter. Our average balance of funds on deposit at the Federal Reserve declined by $1.9 billion. The year-over-year increase in interest expense resulted from growth of $262 million in average interest-bearing deposits, $160 million on average of overnight borrowings in the fourth quarter of 2022, and a 10 basis point increase in cost of funds.

Net interest income before provision for (recapture of) credit losses was $505.5 million for the year ended December 31, 2022, compared to $414.6 million for 2021. Interest income grew by $94.0 million, or 22.36% in 2022. The increase in interest income was the result of a 34 basis point expansion in earning asset yield and a $1.3 billion increase in average earning assets. Cost of funds for 2022 increased by 1 basis point over 2021, while the growth in the earning asset yield to 3.36% drove a 33 basis point increase in the net interest margin. The $1.3 billion increase in average earning assets for 2022 benefited from the acquisition of $775 million of loans from Suncrest at the beginning of the year, as well as core loan growth, which excluding the $177.5 million decline in PPP loans, was $634.3 million from the end of 2021 to the end of 2022. Our investment portfolio grew on average by $1.9 billion over the prior year, funded in part by a $1.1 billion decline in average balances at the Federal Reserve. Interest expense increased $3.1 million from the prior year, due to a $600 million increase in the average balance of interest-bearing deposits, which increased in cost by 1 basis point, and overnight borrowings that averaged $40.7 million for the entire year.

Net Interest Margin

Our tax equivalent net interest margin was 3.69% for the fourth quarter of 2022, compared to 3.46% for the third quarter of 2022 and 2.79% for the fourth quarter of 2021. The 23 basis point increase in our net interest margin compared to the third quarter of 2022, was primarily due to a 31 basis point increase in our earning asset yield. The increase in the earning asset yield was due to a 22 basis point increase in loan yields, a 24 basis point increase in security yields, and a quarter-over-quarter change in the composition of average earning assets, with loans growing from 56.55% to 59.67% of earnings assets, while funds held at the Federal Reserve declined from 4.1% to 0.9%. The 90 basis point increase in net interest margin, compared to the fourth quarter of 2021 was primarily the result of a 100 basis point increase in earning asset yield. Loan yields grew from 4.29% for the fourth quarter of 2021 to 4.78% for the fourth quarter of 2022. Likewise, the yield on investment securities increased by 84 basis points from the prior year quarter. Loan balances grew to 59.67% of earning assets on average for the fourth quarter of 2022, compared to 53.14% for the fourth quarter of 2021. Excess liquidity held at the Federal Reserve was invested into higher yielding investments, which increased to 39.31% of earning assets on average for the fourth quarter of 2022 from 32.87% for the fourth quarter of 2021, while average funds at the Fed declined from 13.69% or earning assets in the fourth quarter of 2021 to only 0.84% in the fourth quarter of 2022. Total cost of funds of 0.13% for the fourth quarter of 2022 increased from 0.05% for the third quarter of 2022 and increased from 0.03% for the year ago quarter. The 8 basis point increase in the cost of funds from the third quarter of 2022 was the net result of approximately $160 million in average overnight borrowings during the fourth quarter and an increase in the cost of interest-bearing deposits from 0.13% to 0.22%. Compared to the fourth quarter of 2021, the 10 basis point increase in cost of funds was the result of a 14 basis point increase in the cost of interest-bearing deposits and an average cost of overnight borrowings of 4.49% for the fourth quarter of 2022. On average, noninterest-bearing deposits were 63.58% of total deposits during the most recent quarter, compared to 63.38% for the fourth quarter of 2022 and 63.80% for the fourth quarter of 2021.

Earning Assets and Deposits

On average, earning assets declined by $521.0 million and grew by $121.1 million, compared to the third quarter of 2022 and the fourth quarter of 2021, respectively. The $521.0 million quarter-over-quarter decline in earning assets resulted from a $500.4 million decrease in interest-earning funds held at the Federal Reserve and average investment securities declining by $191.4 million, which was partially offset by average loans increasing by $169.4 million. Compared to the fourth quarter of 2021, average investments increased by $996.8 million, while the average amount of funds held at the Federal Reserve declined by $1.89 billion.   Average loans increased by $1.03 billion from the fourth quarter of 2021, which included approximately $775 million in loans acquired from Suncrest on January 7, 2022 and a $231.9 million decrease in average PPP loans. Average loans grew by approximately $490 million, or 6.5% from the fourth quarter of 2021, when Suncrest and PPP loans are excluded. Noninterest-bearing deposits declined on average by $307.1 million, or 3.41%, from the third quarter of 2022, while interest-bearing deposits and customer repurchase agreements declined on average by $216.9 million. Compared to the fourth quarter of 2021, total deposits and customer repurchase agreements grew on average by $496.9 million, or 3.62%, including $376.8 million in growth in noninterest bearing deposits.

Provision for Credit Losses

The fourth quarter of 2022 included $2.5 million in provision for credit losses, compared to $2.0 million in provision for credit losses in the third quarter of 2022 and no provision for credit losses in the fourth quarter of 2021. The $2.5 million provision for credit losses in the most recent quarter was the result of approximately $190 million in core loan growth, excluding the seasonal dairy and livestock borrowings, during the quarter. Projected loss rates continue to be impacted by a deteriorating economic forecast that assumes a modest recession in early 2023 and modest GDP growth through 2024, as well as lower commercial real estate values and an increase in unemployment. Our forecast reflects GDP growth of 0.3% in 2023 and 1.3% in 2024. Unemployment is forecasted to be 4.8% in 2023 and 5.1% in 2024.

For the year ended December 31, 2022, we recorded $10.6 million in provision for credit losses, due to both core loan growth of approximately $600 million and a deteriorating economic forecast of key macroeconomic variables. During 2022, we experienced credit charge-offs of $197,000 and total recoveries of $1.1 million, resulting in net recoveries of $893,000. A $25.5 million recapture of provision for credit losses was recorded for the year ended December 31, 2021, resulting from improvements in our economic forecast that resulted from the unprecedented impact and uncertainty of the pandemic in 2020.

Noninterest Income

Noninterest income was $12.5 million for the fourth quarter of 2022, compared with $11.6 million for the third quarter of 2022 and $12.4 million for the fourth quarter of 2021. Service charges on deposits increased $524,000 quarter-over-quarter and including the impact of additional customers resulting from the Suncrest acquisition, grew by $1.3 million, or 28.36% in comparison to the fourth quarter of 2021. Fourth quarter income from Bank Owned Life Insurance (“BOLI”) declined by $569,000 from the third quarter of 2022 and was relatively flat compared to the fourth quarter of 2021. The fourth quarter of 2022 included $1.0 million in death benefits that exceeded the asset value of certain BOLI policies, compared to $2.0 million in the third quarter.   The fourth quarter of 2022 included higher income from community development investments which increased by approximately $769,000, quarter-over-quarter.

For the year ended December 31, 2022, noninterest income was $50.0 million, compared to $47.4 million for 2021.   Service charges on deposit accounts increased by $4.2 million, or 24.66% from the year ended December 31, 2021. Income from BOLI declined by $3.1 million from the prior year, as we incurred a $2.7 million decline in the market value of separate account life insurance policies that are used to fund our deferred compensation liabilities. An additional $1.2 million increase in noninterest income was the net result of a $2.4 million net gain on the sale of one of our properties during 2022, offset by a $1.2 million net gain on the sale of Other Real Estate Owned (“OREO”) properties in 2021.

Noninterest Expense

Noninterest expense for the fourth quarter of 2022 was $54.4 million, compared to $53.0 million for the third quarter of 2022 and $48.0 million for the fourth quarter of 2021. The $1.4 million quarter-over-quarter increase included a $921,000 increase in staff related expense and a $224,000 increase in marketing and promotion expense. The $6.4 million increase year-over-year included expense growth associated with the acquisition of Suncrest Bank and the remaining five banking centers. Compared to the fourth quarter of 2021, staff related expenses increased by $4.6 million and occupancy and equipment expense grew by $998,000. Professional service expense was $649,000 higher in the most recent quarter, compared to the fourth quarter of 2021, including $270,000 in higher legal and employee recruiting costs. There was no acquisition expense related to the merger of Suncrest for the fourth quarter and third quarter of 2022, compared to $153,000 for the fourth quarter of 2021. As a percentage of average assets, noninterest expense was 1.32% for the fourth quarter of 2022, compared to 1.25% for the third quarter of 2022 and 1.19% for the fourth quarter of 2021. The efficiency ratio for the fourth quarter of 2022 was 36.31%, compared to 36.59% for the third quarter of 2022 and 41.80% for the fourth quarter of 2021.  

Noninterest expense of $216.6 million for the year ended December 31, 2022 was $26.8 million higher than the prior year. The year-over-year increase included a $13.7 million increase in salaries and employee benefits, which included additional compensation related expenses for the newly hired and former Suncrest associates. Occupancy and equipment increased by $3.0 million due to the addition of seven banking centers resulting from the acquisition of Suncrest, two of which were subsequently consolidated by the end of the second quarter. Acquisition expense related to the merger of Suncrest was $6.0 million for 2022, compared with $962,000 for 2021. The increase in software expense of $1.9 million, included costs associated with the continued use of Suncrest's legacy banking systems, prior to conversions, as well as continued investments in technology. A $1.7 million increase in marketing and promotion expense for 2022 was primarily due to the impact that the COVID-19 pandemic had on marketing and promotional events in 2021. Professional service expense grew by $1.4 million, including increased costs for legal and employee recruiting of $850,000. The year-over-year increase also included a $1.0 million recapture of provision for unfunded loan commitments for year ended December 31, 2021. As a percentage of average assets, noninterest expense was 1.28% for 2022, compared to 1.24% for 2021. The efficiency ratio was 38.98% for the year ended 2022, compared to 41.09% for the same period of 2021.

Income Taxes

Our effective tax rate for the fourth quarter of 2022 was 28.81% and was 28.30% for the year ended December 31, 2022, compared with 28.6% for the fourth quarter and year-to-date 2021.   Our estimated annual effective tax rate can vary depending upon the level of tax-advantaged income as well as available tax credits.

The ACL was increased by $20.1 million in 2022, including an $8.6 million increase on January 7 for the acquired Suncrest PCD loans, $10.6 million in provision for credit losses for non-PCD loans, and $893,000 in net loan recoveries. At December 31, 2022, ACL as a percentage of total loans and leases outstanding was 0.94%. This compares to 0.94% and 0.82% at September 30, 2022 and December 31, 2021, respectively.

Nonperforming loans, defined as nonaccrual loans and loans 90 days past due accruing interest plus nonperforming TDR loans, and nonperforming assets, defined as nonaccrual loans and loans 90 days past due accruing interest plus OREO, are highlighted below.

The $5.2 million decrease in nonperforming loans was primarily due to a decrease of $4.0 million in commercial real estate nonperforming loans resulting from the payoff of PCD loans acquired from Suncrest. Classified loans are loans that are graded “substandard” or worse. Classified loans increased $15.0 million quarter-over-quarter, primarily due to an $18.1 million increase in classified commercial real estate loans. Total classified loans at December 31, 2022 included $22.8 million of classified loans acquired from Suncrest. Excluding the $22.8 million of acquired classified Suncrest loans, classified loans decreased from December 31, 2021 by approximately $250,000.

Deposits & Customer Repurchase Agreements

Deposits of $12.84 billion and customer repurchase agreements of $565.4 million totaled $13.40 billion at December 31, 2022. This represented a decrease of $938.6 million, or 6.54%, when compared with $14.34 billion at September 30, 2022. Total deposits and customer repurchases decreased on average from the prior quarter by $524 million, or 3.56%.

Capital

The Company’s total equity was $1.95 billion at December 31, 2022. This represented an overall decrease of $133.0 million from total equity of $2.08 billion at December 31, 2021. Increases to equity during 2022, included $197.1 million for the issuance of 8.6 million shares to acquire Suncrest and $235.4 million in net earnings. Decreases included $108.1 million in cash dividends and a $350.8 million decrease in other comprehensive income from the tax effected impact of the decline in market value of available-for-sale securities. During 2022, we executed on a $70 million accelerated stock repurchase program and retired 2,993,551 shares of common stock at an average price of $23.38. We also repurchased, under our 10b5-1 stock repurchase plan, 1,914,590 shares of common stock, at an average repurchase price of $23.43, totaling $44.9 million. Our tangible book value per share at December 31, 2022 was $8.30.

Our capital ratios under the revised capital framework referred to as Basel III remain well-above regulatory standards.

These forward-looking statements are based on management’s current expectations and beliefs concerning future developments and their potential effects on the Company including, without limitation, plans, strategies and goals, and statements about the Company’s outlook regarding revenue and asset growth, financial performance and profitability, loan and deposit growth, yields and returns, loan diversification and credit management, stockholder value creation, tax rates, and the impact of acquisitions we have made or may make. Such statements involve inherent risks and uncertainties, many of which are difficult to predict and are generally beyond the control of the Company, and there can be no assurance that future developments affecting the Company will be the same as those anticipated by management. The Company cautions readers that a number of important factors in addition to those set forth below could cause actual results to differ materially from those expressed in, or implied or projected by, such forward-looking statements.

General risks and uncertainties include, but are not limited to, the following: changes in the U.S. economy and in local economies in which we conduct business; the effects of, and changes in, trade, monetary, and fiscal policies and laws, including interest rate policies of the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System; inflation/deflation, interest rate, market, and monetary fluctuations; the effect of acquisitions we have made or may make, including, without limitation, the failure to obtain the necessary regulatory approvals, the failure to achieve the expected revenue growth and/or expense savings from such acquisitions, and/or the failure to effectively integrate an acquisition target into our operations; the timely development of competitive new products and services and the acceptance of these products and services by new and existing customers; the impact of changes in financial services policies, laws, and regulations, including those concerning taxes, banking, securities, and insurance, and the application thereof by regulatory bodies; the effectiveness of our risk management framework and quantitative models; changes in the levels of our nonperforming assets and charge-offs; the transition away from USD LIBOR and uncertainties regarding potential alternative reference rates, including SOFR; the effect of changes in accounting policies and practices or accounting standards, as may be adopted from time-to-time by bank regulatory agencies, the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”), the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board, the Financial Accounting Standards Board or other accounting standards setters, including ASU 2016-13 (Topic 326), “Measurement of Credit Losses on Financial Instruments,” commonly referenced as the CECL model, which has changed how we estimate credit losses and may further increase the required level of our allowance for credit losses in future periods; possible credit related impairments or declines in the fair value of securities held by us; possible impairment charges to goodwill; changes in business or consumer spending, borrowing, and savings habits; the effects of our lack of a diversified loan portfolio, including the risks of geographic and industry concentrations; periodic fluctuations in commercial or residential real estate prices or values; our ability to attract deposits and other sources of liquidity; the possibility that we may reduce or discontinue the payments of dividends on our common stock; changes in the financial performance and/or condition of our borrowers; changes in the competitive environment among financial and bank holding companies and other financial service providers; technological changes in banking and financial services , including alternative forms of payment or currency that could result in the disintermediation of traditional banks; geopolitical conditions, including acts or threats of terrorism, actions taken by the United States or other governments in response to acts or threats of terrorism, and/or military conflicts, which could impact business and economic conditions in the United States and abroad; catastrophic events or natural disasters, including earthquakes, drought, climate change or extreme weather events that may affect our assets, communications or computer services, customers, employees or third party vendors; public health crises and pandemics, such as the COVID-19 pandemic, and their effects on the economic, business and legal environments in which we operate, including on our credit quality and business operations, as well as the impact on general economic and financial market conditions and on our customers; cybersecurity, privacy and fraud risks, the associated threats to the Company, our vendors and our customers, and the costs of defending against such risks and threats, including the costs of compliance with potential legislation to bolster cybersecurity, privacy protection and fraud prevention at a state, national, or global level; our ability to recruit and retain key executives, board members and other employees, and changes in employment laws and regulations; unanticipated or ongoing regulatory or legal proceedings; and our ability to manage the risks involved in the foregoing. Additional factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from those expressed in the forward-looking statements are discussed in the Company's 2021 Annual Report on Form 10-K filed with the SEC and available at the SEC’s Internet site ().

The Company does not undertake, and specifically disclaims any obligation, to update any forward-looking statements to reflect occurrences or unanticipated events or circumstances after the date of such statements, except as required by law. Any statements about future operating results, such as those concerning accretion and dilution to the Company’s earnings or shareholders, are for illustrative purposes only, are not forecasts, and actual results may differ.
