WILMINGTON, N.C., April 21, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Live Oak Bancshares, Inc. (Nasdaq: LOB) (“Live Oak” or “the Company”) today reported first quarter 2021 net earnings available to common shareholders of $39.4 million, or $0.88 per diluted share.

“Live Oak continued to serve America’s small businesses during the first quarter of 2021 and delivered strong results with $1.2 billion in loan and lease originations. The reopening of the Paycheck Protection Program allowed us to deliver just over $500 million in relief to small businesses during what is hopefully the end of this challenging period for our nation’s entrepreneurs,” said James S. Mahan, III, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Live Oak Bancshares. “Our net income grew to nearly $40 million for the quarter as our focus on providing solutions for small business owners and changing the financial technology landscape promoted our growth and advanced our core earnings.”

Loans and Leases

At March 31, 2021, the total loan and lease portfolio increased to $6.53 billion, 71.3% above its level a year ago and 3.4% above its level at December 31, 2020. Compared to the fourth quarter of 2020, loans and leases held for investment increased $311.8 million, or 6.1%, to $5.46 billion while loans held for sale decreased $98.7 million, or 8.4%, to $1.08 billion. Average loans and leases were $6.35 billion during the first quarter of 2021 compared to $6.29 billion during the fourth quarter of 2020.

The total loan and lease portfolio of $6.53 billion is comprised of $1.45 billion of Paycheck Protection Program (“PPP”) loans, net of deferred fees and costs, at March 31, 2021, which are carried at historical cost classified as held for investment. The unguaranteed percentage of the total loan and lease portfolio is significantly influenced by the addition of PPP loans carrying a 100% government guarantee. The total loan and lease portfolio at March 31, 2021, and December 31, 2020, of $6.53 billion and $6.32 billion, respectively, was comprised of 41.6% and 40.4% of unguaranteed loans and leases, respectively.

Loan and lease originations totaled $1.18 billion during the first quarter of 2021, an increase of $372.2 million, or 46.1%, from the fourth quarter of 2020. Excluding PPP loans in each quarter, loan and lease originations totaled $672.4 million for the first quarter of 2021, a 16.8% decrease from the prior quarter and a 34.3% increase from the first quarter of 2020.

Deposits

Total deposits increased to $6.32 billion at March 31, 2021, an increase of $1.68 billion compared to March 31, 2020, and an increase of $603.2 million compared to December 31, 2020.

The increase in total deposits from the prior quarter provides support for the growth in the loan and lease portfolio and origination activities during the first quarter of 2021. Average total interest-bearing deposits for the first quarter of 2021 increased $314.5 million, or 5.7%, to $5.86 billion, compared to $5.55 billion for the fourth quarter of 2020. The ratio of average total loans and leases to average interest-bearing deposits was 108.2% for the first quarter of 2021, compared to 113.4% for the fourth quarter of 2020. The ratio is influenced by average PPP loan volume and the use of the Federal Reserve’s Paycheck Protection Program Liquidity Facility (“PPPLF”) classified as long-term borrowings.

Borrowings

Borrowings totaled $1.47 billion at March 31, 2021, compared to $50.0 million and $1.54 billion at March 31, 2020, and December 31, 2020, respectively. During the first quarter of 2021, the Company decreased borrowings by $76.1 million primarily by reducing the outstanding balance in the Federal Reserve’s PPPLF to $1.41 billion as of March 31, 2021, compared to $1.53 billion at December 31, 2020. The PPPLF has a 100% advance rate equal to the principal amount of PPP loans pledged as security and carries an interest rate of 0.35%, and loans financed under the PPPLF have a neutral impact on regulatory leverage capital ratios. The decrease in borrowings arising from the reduction in the PPPLF was offset by the addition of a five-year term loan at the Company totaling $49.7 million at March 31, 2021.

Net Interest Income

Net interest income for the first quarter of 2021 increased to $70.0 million compared to $40.2 million for the first quarter of 2020 and $62.3 million for the fourth quarter of 2020.

The increase for the first quarter of 2021 compared to the first quarter of 2020 was driven by the significant growth in the total loan and lease portfolios reflecting the Company's ongoing initiative to grow recurring revenue sources. The increase in net interest income comparing these two periods was also driven by the reduction in the average rate on interest bearing liabilities from 2.14% for the first quarter of 2020 to 1.02% for the first quarter of 2021.

The increase from the fourth quarter of 2020 arose primarily from a 48-basis point improvement in the net interest margin from 3.33% to 3.81%. The yield on interest earnings assets for the first quarter of 2021 increased 37 basis points compared to the fourth quarter of 2020 and was primarily driven by fees recognized on PPP loans originated in the second and third quarters of 2020. The asset yield improvement was complemented by the 11-basis point reduction in the average cost of interest bearing liabilities from 1.13% for the quarter ended December 31, 2020, to 1.02% for the quarter ended March 31, 2021. The reduction in the cost of interest bearing liabilities compared to the fourth quarter of 2020 was largely the result of the maturing and repricing of the certificates of deposit portfolio.

Noninterest Income

Noninterest income for the first quarter of 2021 increased to $31.1 million compared to $5.7 million for the first quarter of 2020 and $10.8 million for the fourth quarter of 2020. The primary drivers behind these increased levels of noninterest income are outlined below.   

The loan servicing asset revaluation resulted in a gain of $1.5 million for the first quarter of 2021 compared to a loss of $4.7 million for the first quarter of 2020 and a loss of $5.8 million for the fourth quarter of 2020. The increase in the loan servicing asset valuation was largely the result of improving market conditions and pricing for government guaranteed loans.

The net gain on loans accounted for under the fair value option totaled $4.2 million for the first quarter of 2021, a $14.9 million increase compared to the net loss for the first quarter of 2020 and a $9.0 million increase compared to the net loss for the fourth quarter of 2020. The valuation of loans was positively impacted by improving market conditions compared to the impacts of COVID-19 during 2020.

Equity method investments loss totaled $1.2 million for the first quarter of 2021, a $1.3 million improvement from the loss for the first quarter of 2020 and a $7.6 million improvement from the loss for the fourth quarter of 2020. The decrease in loss for the first quarter of 2021 compared to the fourth quarter of 2020 was largely due to the Company’s pro rata portion of income tax expense arising from Apiture’s conversion from a partnership to a corporation during the fourth quarter of 2020. Compared to the first quarter of 2020, the loss for the first quarter of 2021 was lower due to a reduction in losses experienced by several of the Company’s financial technology investees.

Other noninterest income increased $1.6 million to $3.5 million for the first quarter of 2021 compared to the first quarter of 2020. This increase was primarily driven by improvements in management fees related to the Company’s wealth and investment management services and gains from equity warrant assets.

Partially offsetting the increase in noninterest income for the first quarter of 2021 compared to the fourth quarter of 2020, the Company’s net gains on sales of loans decreased $3.0 million to $11.9 million in the first quarter of 2021 compared to $15.0 million in the fourth quarter of 2020. While premium levels in the secondary market generally improved in the first quarter of 2021 compared to the fourth quarter of 2020, the average net gain on guaranteed loan sales decreased to $83.9 thousand per million sold versus $115.9 thousand, respectively. This decrease in the average guaranteed loan sale revenue was primarily driven by the Company’s choice to not elect fair value for all retained participating interests arising from new government guaranteed loan sales beginning in the first quarter of 2021. Not electing fair value generally results in a larger discount, which will reduce the amount of gain recognized at the date of sale. This larger discount is subsequently accreted into interest income over the underlying loan’s remaining term using the effective interest method. Management made this change of election in alignment with its ongoing effort to reduce volatility and drive more predictable revenue. In accordance with accounting standards, any loans for which fair value was previously elected will continue to be measured as such.

Noninterest Expense

Noninterest expense for the first quarter of 2021 increased to $58.3 million compared to $49.5 million for the first quarter of 2020 and $52.4 million for the fourth quarter of 2020.

Salaries and employee benefits for the first quarter of 2021 increased to $31.4 million compared to $28.1 million for the first quarter of 2020 and $29.5 million for the fourth quarter of 2020. The increase in salaries and benefits of $3.3 million compared to the first quarter of 2020 and $1.9 million compared to the fourth quarter of 2020 was primarily driven by the vesting of approximately 398 thousand restricted stock unit awards with market price conditions in the first quarter of 2021 that impacted both compensation expense and payroll tax expense by a combined $2.6 million. Additionally, the first quarter of 2021 included a severance payment of $750 thousand. In addition, the salary base grew from prior periods as the Company continued to expand its employee base consistent with strategic and growth initiatives.

Professional services expense increased to $3.8 million for the first quarter of 2021 compared to $1.9 million for the first quarter of 2020 and $1.7 million for the fourth quarter of 2020. The increase for the first quarter of 2021 was largely driven by an increase in legal fees related to the previously disclosed letter the Company received in December 2020 and the resulting putative class action filed against the Company and other parties in March 2021.

During the first quarter of 2021, the Company incurred $3.1 million in impairment charges related to a $3.9 million renewable energy tax credit investment. Investments of this type generate a return primarily through the realization of income tax credits and other benefits; accordingly, impairment of the investment amount is recognized in conjunction with the realization of related tax benefits. This investment generated a federal investment tax credit of $3.4 million which is included in the Company’s estimated annual effective tax rate.    Investments of this nature are part of the Company’s ongoing initiative to promote renewable energy sources.

Other noninterest expense in the first quarter of 2021 included $904 thousand of impairment expense on solar panels due to lower than expected energy production capability and a $525 thousand scholarship endowment in memory of one of the directors of the Company’s board.

The increase in noninterest expense for the first quarter of 2021 compared to the first quarter of 2020 was mitigated in part by a combined decrease in travel and advertising and marketing expense of $1.8 million.

Asset Quality

During the first quarter of 2021, the Company recognized net recoveries for loans carried at historical cost of $984 thousand compared to net charge-offs of $537 thousand in the fourth quarter of 2020 and $2.8 million in the first quarter of 2020. A previously charged-off hotel loan paid off during the first quarter of 2021 resulting in a net recovery of $1.7 million. Net (recoveries) charge-offs as a percentage of average held for investment loans and leases carried at historical cost, annualized, for the quarters ended March 31, 2021 and December 31, 2020, was (0.09)% and 0.05%, respectively.

Unguaranteed nonperforming (nonaccrual) loans and leases, excluding $5.8 million and $5.4 million accounted for under the fair value option at March 31, 2021, and December 31, 2020, respectively, increased to $24.7 million, or 0.53% of loans and leases held for investment which are carried at historical cost, at March 31, 2021, compared to $20.1 million, or 0.46%, at December 31, 2020.

The unguaranteed exposure of foreclosed assets increased $6 thousand to $941 thousand at March 31, 2021, compared to December 31, 2020. Foreclosed assets increased $30 thousand to $4.2 million at March 31, 2021, compared to December 31, 2020.

Provision for (Recovery of) Loan and Lease Credit Losses

The recovery of loan and lease credit losses for the first quarter of 2021 totaled $873 thousand compared to a provision of $11.8 million for the first quarter of 2020 and $8.6 million for the fourth quarter of 2020. The negative provision in the first quarter was primarily the result of improved forecasts related to employment and default expectations as the economic outlook has improved significantly over that experienced in 2020, combined with the effects of the earlier discussed recovery from a previously charged-off hotel loan.

The allowance for credit losses on loans and leases totaled $52.4 million at March 31, 2021, compared to $52.3 million at December 31, 2020. The allowance for credit losses on loans and leases as a percentage of total loans and leases held for investment carried at historical cost was 1.12% and 1.21% at March 31, 2021, and December 31, 2020, respectively. The allowance for credit losses on loans and leases as a percentage of total loans and leases held for investment carried at historical cost is heavily influenced by the 100% guaranteed PPP loans.

Income Tax

Income tax expense in the first quarter of 2021 was $4.2 million compared to a net income tax benefit in the first quarter of 2020 of $7.8 million and an income tax benefit of $17.6 million in the fourth quarter of 2020. The effective tax rate for the first quarter of 2021 of 9.6% is principally the result of the above discussed renewable energy tax credit investments and an income tax benefit of $4.3 million arising from the vesting of restricted stock unit awards with market price conditions, as the fair value of these awards exceeded the total compensation cost recognized by the Company for book purposes.

The increase in the income tax expense for the first quarter of 2021 compared to the income tax benefit for the fourth quarter of 2020 was primarily the product of an increase of $31.6 million in income before taxes and the vesting of restricted stock unit awards with market price conditions during the fourth quarter of 2020 that resulted in the recognition of a tax benefit of $22.1 million during the fourth quarter of 2020.

Shareholders’ Equity

Total shareholders’ equity increased by $22.5 million, or 4.0%, during the first quarter of 2021. This increase was primarily due to net income, partially offset by cash paid for employee tax obligations in lieu of stock for settlement of vested restricted stock unit awards discussed above. Total cash paid in lieu of stock during the first quarter was $11.3 million.

During the first quarter of 2021, 415,504 shares of Class B common stock (non-voting) were converted to Class A common stock (voting) in connection with private sales. The conversion decreased the value of Class B common stock (non-voting) and increased the value of Class A common stock (voting) by $4.4 million.

The Company believes that excluding the amounts associated with these adjustments to present the non-GAAP financial measures provides a meaningful base for period-to-period comparisons, which will assist regulators, investors, and analysts in analyzing the operating results or financial position of the Company. The non-GAAP financial measures are used by management to assess the performance of the Company’s business for presentations of Company performance to investors, and for other reasons as may be requested by investors and analysts. The Company further believes that presenting the non-GAAP financial measures will permit investors and analysts to assess the performance of the Company on the same basis as that applied by management. Non-GAAP financial measures have inherent limitations, are not required to be uniformly applied, and are not audited. Although non-GAAP financial measures are frequently used by shareholders to evaluate a company, they have limitations as an analytical tool and should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for analysis of results reported under GAAP.
