HOUSTON, Oct. 25, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Green Bancorp, Inc. (NASDAQ:GNBC), the bank holding company (“Green Bancorp” or the “Company”) that operates Green Bank, N.A. (“Green Bank”), today announced results for its third quarter and nine months ended September 30, 2017.  The Company reported net income for the quarter of $11.4 million, or $0.31 per diluted common share.

Manny Mehos, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Green Bancorp, said, “I am pleased with our performance this quarter as we delivered solid financial metrics despite a challenging environment as Hurricane Harvey caused widespread flooding that devastated numerous local neighborhoods and proved to be a life changing event for many Houstonians.  Though the damage was extensive, it was largely confined to residential real estate and smaller, local businesses with the core of the Houston economy, and the foundation of the city, retaining its ability to recover quickly.  In fact, Houston is getting back to normal and we expect the local economy to improve as FEMA and insurance monies flow in and the process of rebuilding the areas that suffered damage gets underway.” 

Geoff Greenwade, President of Green Bancorp and Chief Executive Officer of Green Bank, commented, “Loan growth declined in the third quarter due to three factors. First, Hurricane Harvey resulted in a sharp, temporary deceleration in business activity. Second, Harvey necessitated a detailed impact analysis of the borrowers in the affected areas. This effort took the remainder of the quarter and significantly impacted the Bank’s new loan production. Third, we successfully reduced our Commercial Real Estate exposure to under 300% of regulatory capital, which we achieved in August and ended the third quarter at 288%.  The challenge, however, was to restart our CRE lending business in the midst of Hurricane Harvey which proved slow.  Looking forward, we remain confident that the Bank will return to loan growth in the fourth quarter and reiterate our outlook for 7-9% loan growth in 2018.”

Results of Operations - Quarter Ended September 30, 2017 compared with Quarter Ended June 30, 2017

Net income for the quarter ended September 30, 2017 was $11.4 million, a decrease of $1.5 million, or 11.6%, compared with $12.9 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2017. Net income per diluted common share was $0.31 for the quarter ended September 30, 2017, compared with $0.35 for the quarter ended June 30, 2017. Returns on average assets and average common equity, each on an annualized basis, for the three months ended September 30, 2017 were 1.10% and 9.90%, respectively. Green Bancorp’s efficiency ratio, which represents noninterest expense divided by the sum of net interest income and noninterest income, was 50.59% for the three months ended September 30, 2017.  The Company recorded a provision for loan losses of $2.3 million, which included $1.0 million in general reserves due to increases in qualitative factors and the loss migration component, $1.0 million in specific reserves and the remainder to acquired loans. 

Net interest income before provision for loan losses for the quarter ended September 30, 2017 increased 2.8% or $1.0 million, to $36.3 million, compared with $35.3 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2017.  The increase in net interest income was primarily due to an increase of $1.1 million, or 2.8%, in interest earned on loans due to a 9 basis point increase in the average yield and an increase of $409 thousand, or 10.4%, in interest earned on securities due to a $33.5 million, or 4.9%, increase in the average balance and a 10 basis point increase in the average yield, offset by the increases of $272 thousand in interest expense on interest bearing demand and savings due to a 8 basis point increase in the average rate, and $256 thousand in interest expense on certificates and other time deposits due to a $34.3 million increase in the average balance.   The net interest margin for the quarter ended September 30, 2017 of 3.65% increased from 3.63% for the quarter ended June 30, 2017.

Noninterest income for the quarter ended September 30, 2017 was $3.4 million, a decrease of $2.3 million, or 40.5%, from $5.7 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2017.  The decrease was primarily due to a $1.5 million increase in net loss on held for sale loans, a $626 thousand increase in net loss on sale of available for sale securities and a $508 thousand decrease in derivative income, offset by a $424 thousand increase in gain on sale of guaranteed portion of loans.

Noninterest expense for the quarter ended September 30, 2017 was $20.1 million, an increase of $456 thousand, or 2.3%, from $19.6 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2017.  The increase was primarily due to a $432 thousand increase in professional and regulatory fees and small changes in other expense categories.

Loans held for investment at September 30, 2017 were $3.1 billion, a decrease of $51.6 million, or 1.7%, when compared with June 30, 2017.  The decrease is primarily due to a $40.5 million reduction in commercial real estate loans and a $8.1 million reduction in construction and land loans.  At September 30, 2017, energy loans totaled $70.8 million, or 2.3% of total loans, excluding loans held for sale.

Loans held for sale at September 30, 2017 were $17.7 million, a decrease of $357 thousand, or 2.0%, compared with $18.0 million at June 30, 2017.  The loans held for sale include $15.5 million in energy loans.

Deposits at September 30, 2017 were $3.4 billion, an increase of $47.8 million, or 1.4%, compared with June 30, 2017.  The net increase is comprised of an increase of $59.2 million in interest-bearing transaction and savings deposits, offset by a $12.0 million decrease in time deposits.  Average deposits increased $9.5 million, or 0.3%, for the quarter ended September 30, 2017, compared with the prior quarter.

Asset Quality - Quarter Ended September 30, 2017 compared with Quarter Ended June 30, 2017

Nonperforming assets totaled $92.6 million, or 2.23% of period end total assets, at September 30, 2017, an increase of $17.1 million compared to $75.5 million, or 1.80% of period end total assets, at June 30, 2017, primarily due to downgrades of $14.6 million in energy loans held for sale.  Accruing loans classified as troubled debt restructures and included in the nonperforming asset totals were $18.3 million at September 30, 2017, compared with $7.6 million at June 30, 2017.  Real estate acquired through foreclosure totaled $802 thousand at September 30, 2017.

The allowance for loan losses was 1.09% of total loans at September 30, 2017, compared with 1.02% of total loans at June 30, 2017.  At September 30, 2017, the Company’s allowance for loans losses to total loans, excluding acquired loans that are accounted for under ASC 310-20 and ASC 310-30 and their related allowance, was 1.29%.  Further, the allowance for loan losses plus acquired loan net discount to total loans adjusted for acquired loan net discount was 1.25% as of September 30, 2017.

The Company recorded a provision for loan losses of $2.3 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2017 up from the $1.5 million provision for the loan losses recorded for the quarter ended June 30, 2017.  The third quarter of 2017 provision included $1.0 million in general reserves for the potential impact from Hurricane Harvey and $1.0 million in specific reserves.

Net charge-offs were $811 thousand, or 0.03% of total loans, for the quarter ended September 30, 2017, compared with net charge-offs of $1.5 million, or 0.05% of total loans, for the quarter ended June 30, 2017.

Results of Operations – Nine Months Ended September 30, 2017 compared with Nine Months Ended September 30, 2016

Net income for the nine months ended September 30, 2017 was $31.5 million, compared with net loss of $3.5 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2016. Net income per diluted common share was $0.85 for the nine months ended September 30, 2017, compared with net loss per diluted common share of ($0.10) for the nine months ended September 30, 2016.  The Company recorded a provision for loan losses of $10.0 million, which included $7.3 million in reserves on the energy portfolio.  The provision for loan losses was $55.2 million for the same period in 2016, which included $42.2 million related to the energy portfolio.  Net charge-offs were $2.8 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2017, compared with net charge-offs of $52.2 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2016, which included $50.9 million of energy loans.

Net interest income before provision for loan losses for the nine months ended September 30, 2017 was $104.2 million, an increase of $2.8 million, or 2.7%, compared with $101.4 million during the nine months ended September 30, 2016.  The net interest margin for the nine months ended September 30, 2017 of 3.59%, compared with 3.74% for the nine months ended September 30, 2016.

Noninterest income for the nine months ended September 30, 2017 was $14.6 million, an increase of $2.6 million, or 21.3%, compared with $12.0 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2016.  This increase was primarily due to a $2.5 million increase in customer service fees, a $1.1 million increase in gain on sale of guaranteed portion of loans and a $587 thousand increase in loan fees, offset by a $1.2 million net loss on loans held for sale. 

Noninterest expense for the nine months ended September 30, 2017 was $60.5 million, a decrease of $3.0 million, or 4.8%, compared with $63.5 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2016.  The decrease is primarily due to decreases of $2.1 million in real estate acquired by foreclosure and $1.2 million in loan related expenses and a $1.9 million favorable change in the reserve for unfunded commitments, offset by a $2.2 million increase in salaries and employee benefits.

Loans held for investment at September 30, 2017 were $3.1 billion, an increase of $24.1 million, or 0.8%, compared with $3.0 billion at September 30, 2016.  Average loans held for investment decreased $116.8 million, or 3.7%, to $3.0 billion for the nine months ended September 30, 2017, compared with $3.2 billion for the same period in 2016.  The resolution of energy and nonperforming loans during the period offset new loan production.

Deposits at September 30, 2017 were $3.4 billion, an increase of $92.4 million, or 2.8%, compared with September 30, 2016, primarily due to continued opportunities for our portfolio bankers to generate deposit growth within our target markets.  Average deposits increased $214.2 million, or 6.8%, to $3.4 billion for the nine months ended September 30, 2017, compared with the same period of 2016. Average noninterest-bearing deposits for the nine months ended September 30, 2017 were $672.3 million, an increase of $73.2 million, or 12.2%, compared with the same period in 2016.

Notes to Financial Highlights
(Unaudited)

We identify certain financial measures discussed in this release as being “non‑GAAP financial measures.” In accordance with the SEC’s rules, we classify a financial measure as being a non‑GAAP financial measure if that financial measure excludes or includes amounts, or is subject to adjustments that have the effect of excluding or including amounts, that are included or excluded, as the case may be, in the most directly comparable measure calculated and presented in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles as in effect from time to time in the United States in our statements of income, balance sheet or statements of cash flows. Non‑GAAP financial measures do not include operating and other statistical measures or ratios or statistical measures calculated using exclusively either financial measures calculated in accordance with GAAP, operating measures or other measures that are not non‑GAAP financial measures or both.

The non‑GAAP financial measures that we discuss in this release should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for the most directly comparable or other financial measures calculated in accordance with GAAP. Moreover, the manner in which we calculate the non‑GAAP financial measures that we discuss in this release may differ from that of other companies reporting measures with similar names. You should understand how such other banking organizations calculate their financial measures similar or with names similar to the non‑GAAP financial measures we have discussed in this release when comparing such non‑GAAP financial measures.

Tangible Book Value Per Common Share.  Tangible book value is a non‑GAAP measure generally used by financial analysts and investment bankers to evaluate financial institutions. We calculate: (a) tangible common equity as shareholders’ equity less goodwill and core deposit intangibles, net of accumulated amortization; and (b) tangible book value per common share as tangible common equity (as described in clause (a)) divided by shares of common stock outstanding. For tangible book value, the most directly comparable financial measure calculated in accordance with GAAP is our book value.

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 and other intangible assets have the effect of increasing total book value while not increasing our tangible book value.

The following table reconciles, as of the dates set forth below, total shareholders’ equity to tangible common equity and presents our tangible book value per common share compared with our book value per common share:

Tangible Common Equity to Tangible Assets.  Tangible common equity to tangible assets is a non‑GAAP measure generally used by financial analysts and investment bankers to evaluate financial institutions. We calculate: (a) tangible common equity as shareholders’ equity less goodwill and core deposit intangibles, net of accumulated amortization; (b) tangible assets as total assets less goodwill and core deposit intangibles, net of accumulated amortization; and (c) tangible common equity to tangible assets as tangible common equity (as described in clause (a)) divided by tangible assets (as described in clause (b)). For common equity to tangible assets, the most directly comparable financial measure calculated in accordance with GAAP is total shareholders’ equity to total assets.

We believe that this measure is important to many investors in the marketplace who are interested in the relative changes from period to period in common equity and total assets, each exclusive of changes in intangible assets. Goodwill and other intangible assets have the effect of increasing both total shareholders’ equity and assets while not increasing our tangible common equity or tangible assets.

The following table reconciles, as of the dates set forth below, total shareholders’ equity to tangible common equity and total assets to tangible assets and presents our tangible common equity to tangible assets:

Return on Average Tangible Common Equity.  Return on average tangible common equity is a non‑GAAP measure generally used by financial analysts and investment bankers to evaluate financial institutions. We calculate: (a) average tangible common equity as average shareholders’ equity less average goodwill and average core deposit intangibles, net of accumulated amortization; (b) net income less the effect of intangible assets as net income plus amortization of core deposit intangibles, net of taxes; and (c) return (as described in clause (a)) divided by average tangible common equity (as described in clause (b)). For return on average tangible common equity, the most directly comparable financial measure calculated in accordance with GAAP is return on average equity.

We believe that this measure is important to many investors in the marketplace who are interested in the return on common equity, exclusive of the impact of intangible assets.  Goodwill and other intangible assets, including core deposit intangibles, have the effect of increasing total shareholders’ equity, while not increasing our tangible common equity.  This measure is particularly relevant to acquisitive institutions who may have higher balances in goodwill and other intangible assets than non-acquisitive institutions.

The following table reconciles, as of the dates set forth below, average tangible common equity to average common equity and net income excluding amortization of core deposit intangibles, net of tax to net income and presents our return on average tangible common equity:

Allowance for Loan Losses less Allowance for Loan Losses on Acquired Loans to Total Loans excluding Acquired Loans.  The allowance for loan losses less allowance for loan losses on acquired loans to total loans excluding acquired loans is a non‑GAAP measure used by management to evaluate the Company’s financial condition.  Due to the application of purchase accounting, we use this non-GAAP ratio that excludes that impact of these items to evaluate our allowance for loan losses to total loans.  We calculate: (a) total allowance for loan losses less allowance for loan losses on acquired loans as allowance for loan losses less the allowance for loan losses on acquired loans; (b) total loans excluding acquired loans as total loans less the carrying value of acquired loans accounted for under ASC topics 310-20 and 310-30; and (c) allowance for loan losses less allowance for loan losses on acquired loans to total loans excluding acquired loans as the allowance for loan losses less allowance for loan losses on acquired loans (as calculated in clause (a)) divided by total loans excluding acquired loans (as calculated in clause (b)).  For allowance for loan losses less allowance for loan losses on acquired loans to total loans excluding acquired loans, the most directly comparable financial measure calculated in accordance with GAAP is allowance for loan losses to total loans.

We believe that this measure is important to many investors in the marketplace who are interested in the relative changes from period to period in the allowance for loan losses less allowance for loan losses on acquired loans to total loans excluding acquired loans.  The acquired loans may have a premium or discount associated with them that includes a potential credit loss component with similar characteristics to the allowance for loan losses.  This measure reports the allowance for loan loss coverage to only those loans not accounted for pursuant to ASC topics 310-20 and 310-30 which may assist the investor in evaluating the allowance coverage of loans excluding acquired loans.

Allowance for Loan Losses plus Acquired Loan Net Discount to Total Loans adjusted for Acquired Loan Net Discount.  Allowance for loan losses plus acquired loan net discount to total loans adjusted for acquired loan net discount is a non‑GAAP measure used by management to evaluate the Company’s financial condition. We calculate: (a) allowance for loan losses plus acquired loan net discount as allowance for loan losses plus acquired loan net discount, net of accumulated amortization; (b) total loans adjusted for acquired loan net discount as total loans plus acquired loan net discount, net of accumulated amortization; and (c) allowance for loan losses plus acquired loan net discount to total loans adjusted for acquired loan net discount as allowance for loan losses plus acquired loan net discount (as calculated in clause (a)) divided by total loans adjusted for acquired loan net discount (as calculated in clause (b)).  For allowance for loan losses to total loans excluding acquired loans, the most directly comparable financial measure calculated in accordance with GAAP is allowance for loan losses to total loans.

We believe that this measure is important to many investors in the marketplace who are interested in the relative changes from period to period in the allowance for loan losses plus the acquired loan net discount to total loans adjusted for the acquired loan net discount.  This measure reports the combined allowance for loan loss and acquired loan net discount (or premium) as a percentage of loans inclusive of the acquired loan net discount (or premium) which may assist the investor in evaluating allowance coverage on loans inclusive of additional discount or premium resulting from purchase accounting adjustments.

Pre-tax, Pre-provision Return on Average Assets.  Pre-tax, pre-provision return on average assets is a non‑GAAP measure used by management to evaluate the Company’s financial performance. We calculate: (a) pre-tax, pre-provision net income as net income (loss) plus provision (benefit) for income taxes, plus provision for loan losses and (b) return (as described in clause (a)) divided by total average assets.  For pre-tax, pre-provision net income, the most directly comparable financial measure calculated in accordance with GAAP is net income and for pre-tax, pre-provision return on average assets is return on average assets.

We believe that this measure is important to many investors in the marketplace who are interested in understanding the operating performance of the company before provision for loan losses, which can vary from quarter to quarter, and income taxes.  

The following table reconciles, as of the dates set forth below, pre-tax, pre-provision return on average assets:
