BNCCORP, INC. (BNC or the Company) (OTCQX Markets: BNCC), which operates community banking and wealth management businesses in North Dakota, Arizona and Minnesota, and has mortgage banking offices in Illinois, Kansas, Missouri, Arizona, and North Dakota, today reported financial results for the fourth quarter and year ended December 31, 2018.

Net income in the fourth quarter of 2018 was $1.228 million, compared to $329 thousand in the same period of 2017. Fourth quarter 2018 diluted earnings per share was $0.35 compared to $0.09 in the fourth quarter of 2017. The increase in net income from the year-ago period primarily reflected higher net interest income, lower non-interest income, reduced non-interest expense, and lower tax expense in 2018 resulting from the enactment of the federal Tax and Job Cuts Act.

Net interest income in the 2018 fourth quarter increased $234 thousand, or 3.3%, from the same quarter in 2017. Interest income increases from loan growth were partially offset by deposit growth and increased cost of funds.

Non-interest income in the fourth quarter of 2018 decreased by $985 thousand, or 22.3%, from the same period in 2017. The decrease was primarily due to lower mortgage banking revenue of $522 thousand and a non-recurring gain in 2017 from the sale of a bank branch, partially offset by sales of investment securities in 2018. In the fourth quarter of 2017, a gain on the sale of a branch was partially offset by losses on the sale of securities timed to take advantage of recently enacted tax reform legislation.

Non-interest expense in the fourth quarter of 2018 decreased by $126 thousand, or 1.3%, when compared to the fourth quarter of 2017, as lower salaries and employee benefit costs were partially offset by higher marketing and promotion costs in our mortgage banking operations.

The provision for credit losses was $0 in the fourth quarter of 2018 and $100 thousand in the fourth quarter of 2017. The ratio of nonperforming assets to total assets improved to 0.17% at December 31, 2018, from 0.21% at December 31, 2017. The allowance for loan losses was 1.64% of loans and leases held for investment at December 31, 2018, compared to 1.84% at December 31, 2017.

Book value per common share at December 31, 2018 was $22.26 compared to $22.40 at December 31, 2017. Excluding accumulated other comprehensive loss or income, book value per common share at December 31, 2018 was $24.24, compared to $22.38 at December 31, 2017 and $23.95 at September 30, 2018.

Impact of 2017 Tax Reform

In addition to reported results prepared in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles («GAAP»), the Company is providing adjusted earnings, a non-GAAP measure in order to present financial information without the impact of actions linked to the new tax law. The following table reconciles the net income as prepared in accordance with GAAP to the Company’s determination of adjusted earnings (non-GAAP):

Management Comments

Timothy J. Franz, BNC President and Chief Executive Officer, said, «In 2018 our earnings of $1.93 per share were the result of several achievements despite a difficult environment for our mortgage banking operations. We grew loans held for investment by 9.4%, a stronger pace than similarly sized community banks, continued to improve our credit quality metrics, and grew core deposits. We are also pleased to report our deposits surged by more than $50.0 million in early 2019. These achievements reflected the strength of our core banking operations and created value for shareholders.»

Mr. Franz continued, «The successes of 2018 were achieved in a rising rate environment that presented challenges for the mortgage banking industry. As we turn to 2019, we look to increase shareholder value by improving our mortgage banking operations, emphasizing loan and deposit growth, and enhancing our sustainable core earnings. I would like to thank the people of BNC for their hard work in 2018, and their dedication to BNC, the clients we serve and the communities in which we live and work.»

Fourth Quarter 2018 Comparison to Fourth Quarter 2017

Net interest income for the fourth quarter of 2018 was $7.270 million, an increase of $234 thousand, or 3.3%, from $7.036 million in the same period of 2017. The increase reflects the benefit of higher balances of loans held for investment, and yields thereon, offset by increased deposit costs. Overall, the net interest margin increased to 3.07% in the fourth quarter of 2018 from 3.06% in the fourth quarter of 2017.

Interest income increased $1.097 million, or 13.7%, to $9.106 million in the fourth quarter of 2018, compared to $8.009 million in the fourth quarter of 2017, as a result of higher balances and yields on loans held for investment. The yield on average interest earning assets was 3.81% in the fourth quarter of 2018 compared to 3.46% in the fourth quarter of 2017. While the yield on earning assets has increased, we anticipate our assets will continue to reprice upward in future periods assuming sustained current interest rate levels. The average balance of interest earning assets in the fourth quarter of 2018 increased by $28.3 million compared to the same period of 2017. The average balance of loans and leases held for investment increased by $41.5 million, yielding $901 thousand of additional interest income, while the average balance of mortgage loans held for sale was higher by $3.0 million than the same period of 2017. The average balance of investment securities was $22.1 million lower in the fourth quarter of 2018 than in the fourth quarter of 2017. Average cash balances increased $6.0 million quarter to quarter.

Interest expense in the fourth quarter of 2018 was $1.836 million, an increase of $863 thousand from the same period in 2017. The cost of interest-bearing liabilities was 0.96% in the current quarter compared to 0.54% in the same period of 2017. Interest expense increased on deposits as a result of higher balances and market-driven cost increases for consumer certificates of deposit and money market accounts. The cost of core deposits in the fourth quarter of 2018 and 2017 was 0.67% and 0.33%, respectively. Through our focus on building strong customer relationships, BNC has successfully retained and grown its deposit base over many years in an environment where rate competition has been increasing. 

Provision for credit losses was $0 in the fourth quarter of 2018 and $100 thousand in the fourth quarter of 2017.

Non-interest income for the fourth quarter of 2018 was $3.430 million, a decrease of $985 thousand, or 22.3%, from $4.415 million in the fourth quarter of 2017. Gains on sales of investments were $515 thousand higher in the fourth quarter of 2018 compared to the same period of 2017, as BNC sold securities at a loss to take advantage of favorable tax rates. Mortgage banking revenue was $2.141 million in the fourth quarter of 2018, a decrease of $522 thousand when compared to $2.663 million in the fourth quarter of 2017, due to continued macro-economic challenges facing the mortgage industry. Gains on sales of assets and earnings from certain investments can vary significantly from period to period.

Non-interest expense for the fourth quarter of 2018 decreased $126 thousand, or 1.3%, to $9.425 million, from $9.551 million in the fourth quarter of 2017. Salaries and employee benefits expense decreased $520 thousand when compared to fourth quarter of 2017. Marketing and promotion expenses increased $202 thousand, or 22.8%, due to increased market cost of quality mortgage loan leads.

In the fourth quarter of 2018, income tax expense was $47 thousand, compared to $1.471 million in the fourth quarter of 2017. The effective tax rate was 3.7% in the fourth quarter of 2018, compared to 81.7% in the same period of 2017. The effective tax rate in the fourth quarter of 2018 was lower than previous quarters as we refined our full year estimate of income tax expense. The higher effective tax rate in the fourth quarter of 2017 was primarily due to the enactment of federal tax legislation in late 2017.

Net income was $1.228 million, or $0.35 per diluted share, in the fourth quarter of 2018. Net income in the fourth quarter of 2017 was $329 thousand, or $0.09 per diluted share.

Year Ended 2018 Comparison to Year Ended 2017

Net interest income in 2018 was $28.370 million, an increase of $505 thousand, or 1.8%, from $27.865 million in the same period of 2017. Overall, the net interest margin increased to 3.08% in 2018 from 3.05% in 2017.

Interest income increased $3.035 million, or 9.7%, to $34.478 million in 2018, compared to $31.443 million in 2017. This increase was the result of higher balances and yields on loans and leases held for investment and taxable investments. The yield on average interest earning assets was 3.72% in 2018 and 3.42% in the same period of 2017. The average balance of interest earning assets increased by $6.9 million, comparing 2018 to 2017. The average balance of loans and leases held for investment increased by $33.3 million, yielding $2.440 million of additional interest income, while the average balance of mortgage loans held for sale decreased $1.5 million from the same period of 2017. The average balance of investment securities decreased $1.9 million in 2018 compared with 2017, while yielding $661 thousand in additional interest income due to increased yields on taxable investment securities. The average balance of cash held at the Federal Reserve Bank decreased by $23.4 million when comparing the two periods.

Interest expense in 2018 was $6.108 million, an increase of $2.530 million from the same period in 2017. The cost of interest-bearing liabilities was 0.82% in 2018 compared to 0.50% in the same period of 2017. Interest expense increased on deposits, driven largely by increased cost of consumer certificates of deposit and certain money market accounts. The cost of core deposits in 2018 and 2017 was 0.53% and 0.30%, respectively.

Provision for credit losses was $0 in 2018 and $350 thousand in 2017.

Non-interest income in 2018 was $19.017 million, a decrease of $482 thousand, or 2.5%, from $19.499 million in 2017. Gains on sales of loans and investment securities were $999 thousand higher in 2018 compared to 2017. Mortgage banking revenues were $10.032 million in 2018, a decrease of $1.269 million, or 11.2%, when compared to $11.301 million in 2017. Other income in 2018 included $1.442 million of income resulting from the divestiture of a portfolio company by one of our SBIC Fund investments. Other income in 2017 included funds associated with a legal settlement, as well as a gain on the sale of a bank branch. Gains on sales of assets and earnings from certain investments can vary significantly from period to period.

Non-interest expense in 2018 was $39.013 million, a decrease of $103 thousand from the same period in 2017. Salaries and employee benefits expense decreased $420 thousand, or 2.0% from the prior period. Professional services expense decreased compared to 2017 by $550 thousand, or 14.0%, primarily due to reduced mortgage banking volumes and lower legal fees. Marketing and promotion expenses increased $765 thousand, or 22.2%, largely attributed to increased competition for mortgage banking leads.

During 2018, income tax expense was $1.538 million, compared to $3.020 million in 2017. The effective tax rate was 18.4% in 2018, compared to 38.2% in the same period of 2017. The decrease in the effective tax rate is primarily due to the enactment of federal tax legislation in late 2017 that reduced the statutory federal tax rate effective beginning January 1, 2018 and a one-time revaluation of the Company’s deferred tax asset in 2017, which increased tax expense in the prior year.

Net income increased $1.958 million to $6.836 million, or $1.93 per diluted share, in 2018, compared to $4.878 million, or $1.38 per diluted share, for the same period of 2017.

Assets, Liabilities and Equity

Total assets were $971.0 million at December 31, 2018, an increase of $24.9 million, or 2.6%, compared to $946.1 million at December 31, 2017. Loans and leases held for investment aggregated $468.5 million at December 31, 2018, an increase of $40.1 million, or 9.4%, since December 31, 2017. Loans held for sale as of December 31, 2018 decreased $13.8 million from December 31, 2017. Investment securities decreased $408 thousand from year-end 2017, while cash balances decreased $645 thousand.

Total deposits increased $30.8 million to $848.6 million at December 31, 2018, compared to $817.8 million at December 31, 2017.

In early 2019, our core deposits surged by more than $50.0 million. We anticipate this surge will be partially abated as 2019 continues and that our customers may deploy these deposits for tax liabilities and other business purposes.

Capital

Banks and bank holding companies operate under separate regulatory capital requirements.

At December 31, 2018, our capital ratios exceeded all regulatory capital thresholds, including thresholds that incorporate fully phased-in conservation buffers.

A summary of our capital ratios at December 31, 2018 and December 31, 2017 is presented below:

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 our 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. In recent periods, regulators have required Tier 1 leverage ratios that significantly exceed «Well Capitalized» ratio levels. As a result, management believes the Bank’s Tier 1 leverage ratio is our most restrictive capital measurement and we are managing the Tier 1 leverage ratio to levels significantly above the «Well Capitalized» ratio threshold.

The Company routinely evaluates the sufficiency of its capital in order to ensure compliance with regulatory capital standards and to provide a source of strength for the Bank. We manage capital by assessing the composition of capital and the amounts available for growth, risk, or other purposes.

Book value per common share of the Company was $22.26 as of December 31, 2018, compared to $22.40 at December 31, 2017. Book value per common share, excluding accumulated other comprehensive income was $24.24 at December 31, 2018 compared to $22.38 at December 31, 2017.

Asset Quality

The allowance for credit losses was $7.7 million at December 31, 2018, compared to $7.9 million at December 31, 2017. The allowance for credit losses as a percentage of total loans at December 31, 2018 decreased to 1.57%, from 1.69% at December 31, 2017.  The allowance as a percentage of loans and leases held for investment at December 31, 2018 decreased to 1.64% from 1.84% at December 31, 2017 as a result of loan growth and continuing strong credit ratios in 2018.

Nonperforming assets were $1.7 million at December 31, 2018 and $2.0 million at December 31, 2017. The ratio of nonperforming assets to total assets was 0.17% at December 31, 2018 and 0.21% at December 31, 2017. Nonperforming loans were $1.7 million at December 31, 2018 and $2.0 million at December 31, 2017.

At December 31, 2018, BNC had $10.7 million of classified loans, $1.7 million of loans on non-accrual, no other real estate owned, and no repossessed assets. At December 31, 2017, BNC had $11.0 million of classified loans, $2.0 million of loans on non-accrual, no other real estate owned, and no repossessed assets. BNC had $5.2 million of potentially problematic loans, which are risk rated «watch list», at December 31, 2018, compared with $1.7 million as of December 31, 2017.

In recent periods, economic activity in western North Dakota, influenced by the energy sector, has improved. However, it will take time to absorb capacity built in earlier periods, particularly in the commercial real estate sector. The region is driven by the commodity-based industries of energy and agriculture. Commodity based industries can be volatile and impacted by a variety of influences.  For example, the impact, if any, of recent increases in global tariffs on North Dakota farmers adds a measure of uncertainty to the region’s agriculture sector.  Prolonged periods of lower commodity prices or market disruption could have an adverse impact on our loan portfolio.
