CVB Financial Corp. (NASDAQ:CVBF) and its subsidiary, Citizens Business Bank (“the Company”), announced earnings for the quarter ended September 30, 2014.

CVB Financial Corp. reported net income of $24.3 million for the third quarter of 2014, compared with $24.2 million for the third quarter of 2013. Diluted earnings per share were $0.23 for the third quarter of 2014, compared to $0.23 for the same period last year.

The allowance for loan losses was reduced by $1.0 million for the quarter. This follows a reduction of $7.6 million for the second quarter of 2014, $7.5 million for the first quarter of 2014, $6.8 million for the fourth quarter of 2013, $3.8 million for the third quarter of 2013, $6.2 million for the second quarter of 2013, and zero provision for loan losses for the previous eight fiscal quarters.

Chris Myers, President and CEO of Citizens Business Bank (“CBB”), commented, “We are pleased with the overall financial results for the third quarter of 2014, which included $85 million in overall loan growth and a $75 million increase in noninterest-bearing deposits, quarter-over-quarter.”

Net income of $24.3 million for the third quarter of 2014 produced a return on beginning equity of 11.46%, a return on average equity of 11.26% and a return on average assets of 1.31%. The efficiency ratio for the third quarter of 2014 was 46.91%, compared to 43.63% for the third quarter of 2013.

Net income totaled $78.4 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2014. This represented an increase of $8.1 million, or 11.55%, when compared with net income of $70.3 million for the same period of 2013. Diluted earnings per share were $0.74 for the nine months ended September 30, 2014, compared to $0.67 for the same period of 2013. Net income for the nine months ended September 30, 2014 produced a return on beginning equity of 13.59%, a return on average equity of 12.77% and a return on average assets of 1.49%. The efficiency ratio for the nine months ended September 30, 2014 was 47.04%, compared to 46.94% for the nine months ended September 30, 2013.

Interest income and fees on loans for the third quarter of 2014 totaled $46.9 million, which included $1.4 million of discount accretion from principal reductions, payoffs and improved credit loss experienced on covered loans acquired from San Joaquin Bank (“SJB”). This represented an increase of $3.4 million when compared to total interest income on loans of $43.6 million for the second quarter of 2014. The second quarter included $1.5 million of SJB discount accretion, compared to $2.9 million of SJB discount accretion for the year ago quarter.

Noninterest income was $8.0 million for the third quarter of 2014, an increase of $959,000 over the second quarter of 2014 and an increase of $3.1 million over the third quarter of 2013. The net decrease in the FDIC loss sharing asset was $479,000 for the third quarter of 2014, compared to a $1.5 million net decrease for the second quarter of 2014 and a $3.2 million net decrease for the third quarter of 2013.

Noninterest expense for the third quarter of 2014 was $32.5 million, compared to $31.3 million for the second quarter of 2014 and $25.7 million for the third quarter of 2013. The quarter-over-quarter increase was principally due to expenses related to the acquisition of American Security Bank (“ASB”). For the three and nine months ended September 30, 2014, non-recurring ASB acquisition related costs were $640,000 and $1.9 million, respectively. In the latter half of the third quarter, we converted the ASB core operating system into the CBB application infrastructure, consolidated two branch locations, and closed two electronic banking vestibules. We should realize greater cost synergies in the fourth quarter due to these consolidations and closures. Noninterest expense for the third quarter of 2014 also included a $1.3 million reduction of the reserve for unfunded loan commitments. As a percentage of average assets, noninterest expense was 1.75%, compared to 1.79% for the second quarter of 2014 and 1.58% for the third quarter of 2013.

Net Interest Income and Net Interest Margin

Net interest income, before provision for loan losses, was $61.2 million for the third quarter of 2014. This was an increase of $4.0 million from $57.2 million for the second quarter of 2014 and an increase of $7.2 million from $54.0 million for the third quarter of 2013. Excluding the impact of the yield adjustment on covered loans, our net interest margin (tax equivalent) was 3.53% for the third quarter of 2014, compared to 3.46% for the second quarter of 2014, and 3.48% for the third quarter of 2013. Total average earning asset yields (excluding the discount on covered loans) increased to 3.76% for the third quarter of 2014 from 3.70% for the second quarter of 2014 and 3.75% for the third quarter of 2013. Total cost of funds was 0.25% for the third quarter of 2014, compared to 0.26% for the second quarter of 2014. Cost of funds was 0.29% for the third quarter of 2013.

Income Taxes

Our effective tax rate for the nine months ended September 30, 2014 was 36.25%, compared with 33.50% for the same period of 2013. Our estimated annual effective tax rate varies depending upon tax-advantaged income as well as available tax credits. We benefited from approximately $1.1 million of enterprise zone tax credits in the first half of 2013, many of which have been eliminated in 2014.

Assets

The Company reported total assets of $7.42 billion at September 30, 2014. This represents an increase of $757.9 million, or 11.37%, from total assets of $6.66 billion at December 31, 2013. Earning assets of $7.05 billion at September 30, 2014 increased $722.0 million, or 11.42%, when compared with $6.32 billion at December 31, 2013. The increase in earning assets was primarily due to a $496.2 million increase in investment securities, a $156.3 million increase in total loans, and a $128.1 million increase in interest-earning deposits with the Federal Reserve Bank. This was partially offset by a $51.7 million decrease in interest-earning deposits with other institutions.

Total assets of $7.42 billion at September 30, 2014 increased $865.6 million, or 13.20%, from total assets of $6.56 billion at September 30, 2013. Earning assets totaled $7.05 billion at September 30, 2014, an increase of $868.6 million, or 14.06%, when compared with earning assets of $6.18 billion at September 30, 2013. The increase in earning assets was primarily due to a $542.5 million increase in investment securities, a $261.6 million increase in total loans, and a $130.3 million increase in interest-earning deposits with the Federal Reserve Bank. This was partially offset by a $51.7 million decrease in interest-earning deposits with other institutions and a $14.1 million decrease in FHLB stock.

Investment Securities

Investment securities were $3.16 billion at September 30, 2014, an increase of $496.2 million from $2.67 billion at December 31, 2013, and an increase of $542.5 million from $2.62 billion at September 30, 2013. As of September 30, 2014, we had a pre-tax unrealized gain of $31.2 million on our overall securities portfolio.

MBS totaled $2.24 billion at September 30, 2014, compared to $1.75 billion at December 31, 2013. Virtually all of our mortgage-backed securities are issued by Freddie Mac or Fannie Mae, which have the implied guarantee of the U.S. Government. We have one Alt-A bond, with a carrying value of $1.6 million as of September 30, 2014, which has had $1.9 million in net other-than-temporary impairment (“OTTI”) loss to date since it was purchased in early 2008. No additional OTTI was recorded for the quarter ended September 30, 2014.

Our municipal securities, totaling $588.0 million, are located in 29 states, and approximately $27.5 million, or 4.7%, are located within the state of California. Our largest concentrations of holdings are in Michigan at 12.8%, New Jersey at 10.8% and Texas at 8.7%. All municipal bond securities are performing.

In the third quarter of 2014, we purchased $253.8 million of MBS with an average yield of 2.09%. Our new purchases of MBS have an average duration of approximately four years. We also purchased $7.7 million in municipal securities with an average tax-equivalent yield of 3.79%.

Loans

Total loans and leases, net of deferred fees and discount on covered loans, totaled $3.71 billion at September 30, 2014. This was an increase of $156.3 million, or 4.40%, from December 31, 2013 and an increase of $85.3 million, or 2.36%, from June 30, 2014. Quarter-over-quarter, non-covered loans increased by $91.6 million, and covered loans decreased by $6.3 million. The $91.6 million quarter-over-quarter increase in non-covered loans was due to increases of $65.1 million in commercial real estate loans, $12.9 million in dairy & livestock and agribusiness loans, $7.8 million in construction loans, and $6.3 million in SFR mortgage loans.

Total loans and leases, net of deferred fees and discount on covered loans, of $3.71 billion at September 30, 2014, increased by $261.5 million, or 7.59%, from $3.44 billion at September 30, 2013. Non-covered loans increased by $292.5 million year-over-year, while covered loans declined by $31.0 million. The year-over-year increase in total loans included approximately $236 million of loans as a result of the ASB acquisition on May 15, 2014.

Deposits & Customer Repurchase Agreements

Deposits of $5.76 billion and customer repurchase agreements of $528.8 million totaled $6.29 billion at September 30, 2014. This represents an increase of $754.2 million, or 13.63%, when compared with total deposits and customer repurchase agreements of $5.53 billion at December 31, 2013. Deposits and customer repurchase agreements increased by $826.7 million, or 15.14%, when compared with $5.46 billion in total deposits and customer repurchase agreements reported at September 30, 2013.

Noninterest-bearing deposits were $3.04 billion at September 30, 2014, an increase of $474.1 million, or 18.50%, compared to $2.56 billion at December 31, 2013, and an increase of $498.6 million, or 19.64%, when compared to September 30, 2013. At September 30, 2014, noninterest-bearing deposits were 52.73% of total deposits, compared to 52.41% at December 31, 2013 and 51.85% at September 30, 2013.

Our average cost of total deposits was 0.09% for the quarter ended September 30, 2014, compared to 0.10% for the same period last year. Our cost of total deposits including customer repurchase agreements was 0.10% for the quarter ended September 30, 2014, compared to 0.12% for the same period of 2013.

FHLB Advances, Other Borrowings and Debentures

We had $199.4 million in FHLB advances at September 30, 2014, compared to $199.2 million at December 31, 2013 and $199.1 million at September 30, 2013.

At September 30, 2014, we had $25.8 million of junior subordinated debentures, unchanged from December 31, 2013 and September 30, 2013.

Asset Quality

We have separated the discussion of asset quality into two sections: non-covered loans and covered loans. The non-covered loans represent the legacy and ongoing Citizens Business Bank loans and exclude all loans acquired in the SJB acquisition. The SJB loans are “covered” loans as defined in the loss sharing agreement with the FDIC, which expired October 16, 2014. These loans were marked to fair value at the acquisition date.

Citizens Business Bank Asset Quality (Non-covered loans)

The allowance for loan losses decreased to $59.6 million at September 30, 2014, compared to $61.0 million at June 30, 2014 and $75.2 million at December 31, 2013. The quarter-over-quarter decrease was primarily due to a $1.0 million reduction in the allowance for loan losses for the third quarter of 2014, principally due to improved credit quality. The allowance for loan losses was 1.67%, 1.75%, 2.11%, 2.22%, and 2.46% of total non-covered loans and leases outstanding at September 30, 2014, June 30, 2014, March 31, 2014, December 31, 2013, and September 30, 2013, respectively.

Nonperforming loans, defined as nonaccrual loans and nonperforming troubled debt restructured loans (“TDR’s”), were $37.1 million at September 30, 2014, or 1.04% of total loans. This compares to nonperforming loans of $44.0 million, or 1.26% of total loans, at June, 30, 2014 and $40.0 million, or 1.18% of total loans, at December 31, 2013. The $37.1 million in nonperforming loans at September 30, 2014 are summarized as follows: $14.8 million in commercial real estate, $9.7 million in commercial construction, $6.7 million in commercial and industrial, $4.0 million in SFR mortgage, $1.5 million in dairy & livestock and agribusiness, and $461,000 in other loans. The $6.9 million decrease in nonperforming loans quarter-over-quarter was principally due to decreases of $3.7 million in nonperforming dairy & livestock and agribusiness loans, $2.8 million in nonperforming SFR mortgage loans, and $303,000 in nonperforming commercial and industrial loans.

We had $6.2 million in OREO at September 30, 2014, compared to $6.5 million in OREO at December 31, 2013 and September 30, 2013. As of September 30, 2014, we had five OREO properties compared with two OREO properties at December 31, 2013. During the first nine months of 2014, we acquired three OREO properties from ASB and added three additional properties. We sold three properties with a carrying value of $2.2 million, realizing a net gain on sale of $203,000.

At September 30, 2014, we had loans delinquent 30 to 89 days of $688,000. This compares to $3.3 million at December 31, 2013 and $1.7 million at September 30, 2013. As a percentage of total loans, delinquencies, excluding nonaccruals, were 0.02% at September 30, 2014, 0.10% at December 31, 2013, and 0.05% at September 30, 2013. All loans delinquent 90 days or more were categorized as nonperforming.

At September 30, 2014, we had $55.6 million in performing TDR loans, compared to $61.9 million in performing TDR loans at June 30, 2014 and $67.0 million in performing TDR loans at December 31, 2013. In terms of the number of loans, we had 39 performing TDR loans at September 30, 2014, 42 performing TDR loans at June 30, 2014, and 47 performing TDR loans at December 31, 2013.

Nonperforming assets, defined as non-covered nonaccrual loans and other real estate owned, totaled $43.3 million at September 30, 2014, $46.4 million at December 31, 2013, and $56.0 million at September 30, 2013.

Classified loans are loans that are graded “substandard” or worse. At September 30, 2014, classified loans totaled $147.2 million, compared to $156.8 million at June 30, 2014, $219.0 million at March 31, 2014 and $245.6 million at December 31, 2013. The $9.6 million quarter-over-quarter reduction in classified loans was primarily due to a decrease of $6.6 million in our classified dairy & livestock portfolio.

San Joaquin Bank Asset Quality (Covered loans)

At September 30, 2014, we had $140.6 million of gross loans remaining from SJB with a carrying value of $132.4 million, compared to $148.2 million of gross loans at June 30, 2014 with a carrying value of $138.7 million. We had $173.1 million of gross loans from SJB with a carrying value of $160.3 million at December 31, 2013. Of the gross loans, we had $7.9 million in nonperforming loans as of September 30, 2014, or 5.65%, compared to $18.5 million in nonperforming loans at December 31, 2013, or 10.70%. We had three properties in OREO totaling $590,000 at September 30, 2014, compared to two properties totaling $655,000 at June 30, 2014 and two properties totaling $504,000 at December 31, 2013. For the nine months ended September 30, 2014, there were two additions to OREO totaling $340,000. During the first nine months of 2014, we sold one property with a carrying value of $189,000.

Net Interest Income and Net Interest Margin Reconciliations (Non-GAAP)

We use certain non-GAAP financial measures to provide supplemental information regarding our performance. Net interest income for the three months ended September 30, 2014 and 2013 include a yield adjustment of $1.4 million and $2.9 million, respectively. Net interest income for the nine months ended September 30, 2014 and 2013 include a yield adjustment of $4.5 million and $10.8 million, respectively. These yield adjustments relate to discount accretion on covered loans, and are reflected in the Company’s net interest margin. We believe that presenting net interest income and the net interest margin excluding these yield adjustments provides additional clarity to the users of financial statements regarding core net interest income and net interest margin.
