BISMARCK, N.D., July 29, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — BNCCORP, INC. (BNC or the Company) (OTCQX Markets: BNCC), which operates community banking and wealth management businesses in North Dakota and Arizona and has mortgage banking offices in Illinois, Kansas, Michigan, Arizona, and North Dakota, today reported financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2022.

Overview of Quarter

Net income in the second quarter of 2022 was $2.0 million compared to $4.2 million in the same period of 2021. Second quarter 2022 earnings per diluted share was $0.56 versus $1.17 in the second quarter 2021. The year-over-year decrease was primarily due to lower mortgage revenues and net interest income, partially offset by lower non-interest expense.

Second quarter 2022 net interest income decreased by $38 thousand, or 0.5%, from the comparable 2021 quarter. Interest income decreased by $235 thousand, or 2.9%, from the second quarter of 2021 due to lower balances and yields on loans. This decrease was partially offset by higher balances and yields on debt securities as well as higher yields on interest-bearing cash. PPP fees were $55 thousand in the second quarter of 2022 compared to $206 thousand in the second quarter of 2021. Second quarter 2022 interest expense decreased by $197 thousand, or 32.2%, versus the second quarter of 2021 as the Company moved non-core deposits off the balance sheet at the end of the first quarter of 2022 through the use of an associated banking network. The Company also continues to manage the reduction in certificates of deposit balances.

Non-interest income in the second quarter of 2022 decreased by $3.9 million versus the same period in 2021. In the second quarter of 2022, mortgage banking revenues were $3.8 million, $4.0 million lower than the same period a year ago when the Company experienced a combination of historically high refinance originations and margins. Gains on sales of loans were $219 thousand in the second quarter of 2022, compared to losses of $1 thousand in the prior year period. Other income was impacted by the sale of the Company’s Golden Valley, MN property in the second quarter of 2022 and by the sale of the loans and deposits from the same location in the second quarter of 2021.

Non-interest expense in the 2022 second quarter decreased by $1.1 million, or 8.9%, versus the second quarter of 2021. Non-interest expenses related to mortgage operations decreased by $951 thousand, or 16.0%, as management matched the scale of operations based on the marketplace opportunity.

Nonperforming assets were $1.4 million on June 30, 2022, down from $1.7 million on December 31, 2021. The ratio of nonperforming assets-to-total-assets was 0.15% on June 30, 2022, down from 0.16% on December 31, 2021. The Company had no provision for credit losses in either the 2022 and 2021 second quarters. The allowance for credit losses decreased to 1.52% of loans held for investment (excluding $709 thousand of PPP loans) on June 30, 2022, compared to 1.75% on December 31, 2021 (excluding $11.9 million of PPP loans). The Company continues to monitor key industry data and will prudently adjust its allowance for credit losses as appropriate.

Tangible book value per common share on June 30, 2022, was $28.53, compared to $32.35 at December 31, 2021. The decline in tangible book value per common share was driven by dividends declared in May 2022 along with the negative impact of higher long-term rates on accumulated other comprehensive income (losses) partially offset by retained earnings. The Company’s tangible common equity capital ratio was 11.04% on June 30, 2022, compared to 10.98% on December 31, 2021.

Total assets were $918.7 million as of June 30, 2022 compared to $1.0 billion on December 31, 2021. Total deposits were $794.0 million at June 30, 2022, compared to $906.7 million at December 31, 2021.

Management Commentary

“As our quarterly results indicate, we are continuing to drive performance and maintain a stable financial position that allow us to seize opportunities as they emerge,” said Daniel J. Collins, BNC’s President and Chief Executive Officer. “This disciplined, deliberate approach is an asset in any market, but particularly so in the face of the macroeconomic and geopolitical headwinds impacting the entire industry and particularly the mortgage sector. Over the last several quarters, we have transitioned our mortgage business from focusing on refinance transactions to purchase transactions, including adjusting our operations to match expected loan origination levels. In the second quarter, the volatile interest rate environment and inflation pressures added downward pressure on mortgage loan values and compressed margins. We continue to remain agile in actively addressing these changing conditions.”

Collins continued, “Across the enterprise, we are intently focused on our core strengths: strong community banking relationships, sensible lending practices and a strong, stable, and forward-looking position in the marketplace. This disciplined focus helped drive a $39.7 million, or 7.7%, increase in loans held for investment in the first six months of 2022 while managing liquidity levels.”

“As we look ahead to the rest of 2022, we plan to rely on our strong balance sheet and fiscal prudence to improve our financial performance and efficiently manage liquidity levels. Operationally, we have undertaken several initiatives to improve efficiency, productivity and strengthen our customers’ experience. We are keenly focused on credit quality and how the potential impacts of inflation, government actions and other economic risk factors might affect us, but we remain encouraged by the momentum in generating loan growth in the businesses and communities we serve. We’re confident that our superior customer service and broad range of financial products will continue to help us meet the needs of existing and prospective clients.”

2022 Versus 2021 Second Quarter Comparison

Net interest income for the second quarter of 2022 was $7.4 million, a decrease of $38 thousand, or 0.5%, from $7.4 million in the second quarter of 2021, primarily the result of lower balances and yields on loans, partially offset by higher balances and yields on debt securities, higher yields on interest-bearing cash, and lower deposit balances and cost of deposits. PPP fees were $55 thousand in the second quarter of 2022 compared to $206 thousand in the second quarter of 2021. Net interest margin increased to 3.31% in the 2022 second quarter, compared to 2.72% in the year-earlier period.

Second quarter interest income decreased by $235 thousand, or 2.9%, to $7.8 million in 2022, compared to $8.0 million in the second quarter of 2021. The decrease is the result of lower loan balances, primarily lower balances of loans held for sale and PPP loans. The yield on average interest-earning assets was 3.50% in the second quarter of 2022, compared to 2.95% in the 2021 second quarter as the Company’s variable rate assets have started to re-price in step with recent interest rate movements by the Federal Reserve.

The average balance of interest-earning assets in the 2022 second quarter decreased by $198.6 million from the same period of 2021, primarily due to a $139.7 million decrease in interest-bearing cash, by a decrease in average loans held for sale, and by a decrease in average loans held for investment (including PPP loans). Interest income for loans held for investment decreased $267 thousand on a period-over-period basis. The average balance of loans held for investment decreased by $20.7 million. The forgiveness of PPP loans accounted for $65.7 million of the decrease, which was partially offset by new origination activity. The average balance of mortgage loans held for sale was $50.2 million, $67.1 million lower than the same period of 2021. Interest income from loans held for sale decreased $323 thousand primarily due to lower average balances. The average balance of debt securities in the second quarter of 2022 was $196.9 million, $27.1 million higher than in the second quarter of 2021. Interest income from debt securities was $200 thousand higher compared to the same period of 2021.

Interest expense in the second quarter of 2022 was $415 thousand, a decrease of $197 thousand, or 32.2%, from the 2021 period. The average balance of deposits decreased by $173.4 million when comparing the second quarter of 2022 to 2021.  The primary driver of the decrease was the movement of non-core deposits off the balance sheet at the end of the first quarter of 2022 through the use of an associated banking network coupled with managing the balances of our certificates of deposit. The cost of interest-bearing liabilities was 0.26% during the second quarter of 2022, compared to 0.30% in the same period of 2021. The cost of core deposits in the second quarters of 2022 and 2021 was 0.16% and 0.22%, respectively, as the Company continues to manage its overall cost of deposits.

As of June 30, 2022, credit metrics remained stable with $1.4 million of nonperforming assets, representing a 0.15% nonperforming assets-to-total-asset ratio, compared to $1.7 million and 0.16% on December 31, 2021. The Company had no provision for credit losses recorded in the second quarters of 2022 and 2021.

Non-interest income for the second quarter of 2022 was $5.8 million, compared to $9.6 million in the 2021 second quarter. The decrease was driven by a reduction in mortgage banking revenues to $3.8 million in the second quarter of 2022, versus $7.8 million in the prior-year period. The Company’s mortgage business has transitioned to a lower level of originations compared to the historically high level of refinance activity and margins in the prior-year period. In the second quarter of 2022, BNC funded 718 mortgage loans with combined balances of $294.1 million, compared to 1,499 mortgage loans with combined balances of $536.3 million in the second quarter of 2021. Bank charges and service fees were $182 thousand higher when comparing the second quarter of 2022 to 2021 due to higher fees from letters of credit, deposit account charges, and from the movement of deposits to one-way sell positions. Wealth management revenues decreased $49 thousand, or 9.1%, as assets under administration decreased as a result of overall market declines relative to the 2021 period. Other income was impacted by the sale of the Company’s Golden Valley, MN property in the second quarter of 2022 compared to the sale of the loans and deposits from the same location in the second quarter of 2021.

Non-interest expense for the second quarter of 2022 decreased $1.1 million, or 8.9%, to $10.5 million, from $11.6 million in the second quarter of 2021. Non-interest expenses related to mortgage operations decreased by $951 thousand, or 16.0%, as management scaled operations to match the marketplace opportunity. There were 125 full-time equivalent employees engaged in mortgage operations as of June 30, 2022, compared to 139 on June 30, 2021. Combined expenses for community banking and the holding company decreased by $83 thousand, or 1.5%, compared to the 2021 period primarily due to reduced salary and professional service expense that was partially offset by higher marketing and other expenses.

In the second quarter of 2022, income tax expense was $617 thousand, compared to $1.3 million in the second quarter of 2021. The effective tax rate was 23.5% in the second quarter of 2022, compared to 24.0% in the same period of 2021.

Net income was $2.0 million, or $0.56 per diluted share, in the second quarter of 2022, versus $4.2 million, or $1.17 per diluted share, in the second quarter of 2021.

Net interest income in the first half of 2022 was $14.3 million, a decrease of $2.2 million, or 13.3%, from $16.5 million in 2021.

Total assets were $918.7 million at June 30, 2022 versus $1.0 billion at December 31, 2021.

Total loans held for investment were $558.3 million on June 30, 2022 compared to $529.8 million on December 31, 2021. PPP loan balances, included in loans held for investment, were $709 thousand on June 30, 2022 compared to $11.9 million at December 31, 2021.

Trust assets under administration decreased 15.4%, or $63.1 million, to $346.4 million at June 30, 2022, from $409.5 million at December 31, 2021. The overall market declines have outpaced the new assets that the Company has placed under administration.

Asset Quality

The allowance for credit losses was $8.5 million at June 30, 2022, and $9.1 million at December 31, 2021. The allowance as a percentage of loans held for investment on June 30, 2022 decreased to 1.52% from 1.71% as of December 31, 2021. Excluding PPP loans, which are 100% guaranteed by the SBA, the allowance for credit losses as a percentage of loans held for investment on June 30, 2022, decreased to 1.52% compared to 1.75% on December 31, 2021.

Nonperforming assets, consisting of loans, decreased to $1.4 million at June 30, 2022 compared to $1.7 million at December 31, 2021. The ratio of nonperforming assets-to-total-assets was 0.15% at June 30, 2022, and 0.16% at December 31, 2021. As of June 30, 2022, the Company did not hold any other real estate and held $15 thousand in repossessed assets. As of December 31, 2021, the Company did not hold any other real estate and held $17 thousand in repossessed assets.

As of June 30, 2022, classified loans decreased to $3.7 million with $1.4 million of loans on non-accrual. As of December 31, 2021, BNC had $8.5 million of classified loans and $1.7 million of loans on non-accrual. At the end of the second quarter of 2022, BNC had $6.2 million of potentially problematic loans, which are risk rated “watch list”, compared with $6.5 million as of December 31, 2021.

The Company continues to monitor the effects of the pandemic and its potential impact on customers as one factor among numerous macroeconomic and geopolitical considerations when monitoring the performance of its loan portfolio and adjusting its allowance for credit losses.

BNC’s loans held for investment are geographically concentrated in North Dakota and Arizona, comprising 61% and 22% of the Company’s total loan held for investment portfolio, respectively.

The North Dakota economy is influenced by the energy and agriculture industries. Energy supply and demand factors have recently increased oil prices, benefiting the oil industry and ancillary services. Legislation and economic conditions remain potential risks to energy markets and production activity and could present potential challenges to credit quality in North Dakota. The Arizona economy is influenced by the leisure and travel industries. Positive trends in both industries have been noted, but an extended slowdown in these industries may negatively impact credit quality in Arizona. BNC’s portfolio is constructed of various sized loans spread over a large number of industry sectors, although the Company manages meaningful concentrations of loans in hospitality and commercial real estate.

The following table approximately describes the Company’s concentrations by industry. The amounts presented therein exclude PPP loans of $709 thousand and $11.9 million as of June 30, 2022 and December 31, 2021, respectively (in thousands):

The Company’s loans within the hospitality industry have shown signs of recovery that are reflected by hotel occupancy and restaurant utilization trends. Hotel operators in BNC’s loan portfolio are reporting positive trends, and in some cases stronger balance sheets. Despite these positive indications, labor shortages limit capacity in some cases, and potential inflationary impacts on travel and leisure activities continue to be a closely monitored.

While the Company’s loan portfolio and credit risk may still be subject to pandemic related risks, management believes that this potential risk remains qualitatively captured in the Company’s allowance for credit losses.

Capital

Banks and bank holding companies operate under separate regulatory capital requirements. As of June 30, 2022, the Company’s capital ratios exceeded all regulatory capital thresholds, including the capital conservation buffer.

The Common Equity Tier 1 ratio, which is generally a comparison of a bank’s core equity capital to its total risk weighted assets, is a measure of the current risk profile of the Bank’s asset base from a regulatory perspective. The Tier 1 leverage ratio, which is based on average assets, does not consider the mix of risk-weighted assets.

The Company regularly evaluates the sufficiency of its capital to ensure compliance with regulatory capital standards and to serve as a source of strength for the Bank. The Company manages capital by assessing the composition of capital and the amounts available for growth, risk, or other purposes. The Company made an election at the adoption of BASEL III to exclude changes in accumulated other comprehensive income from the calculation of regulatory ratios.
