Company Release - 4/25/2017 5:00 PM ET

BILLINGS, Mont.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- First Interstate BancSystem, Inc. (NASDAQ: FIBK) reports first quarter 2017 net income of $23.1 million, or $0.51 per share. This compares to net income of $24.8 million, or $0.55 per share, during fourth quarter 2016, and $20.1 million, or $0.45 per share, during first quarter 2016. Exclusive of non-core items, the Company's first quarter core net income was $23.6 million, or $0.52 per share, as compared to $25.5 million, or $0.57 per share, during fourth quarter 2016, and $20.1 million, or $0.45 per share, during first quarter 2016.

HIGHLIGHTS

  • Core earnings per share growth of 15.6% over the same period in the prior year.
  • Positive operating leverage - net interest income growth of 1.4% over the prior year, fee-based revenue growth of 2.5% over the prior year, as compared to core non-interest expense growth of 1.2% during the same period.
  • Core non-interest expense of $63.0 million, an increase of 1.2% over the same period in the prior year and a decrease of 7.3% from fourth quarter 2016.
  • Regulatory approval received for acquisition of Cascade Bancorp, parent company of Bank of the Cascades, with expected closing date accelerated to the end of May 2017.
  • Net charged-off loans of 0.13% of average loans.
  • Dividends per common share of $11 million, or $0.24 per share, an increase from $10 million, or $0.22 per share, paid during fourth quarter 2016.

“Although we delivered a 15% increase in core earnings per share over the prior year, loan growth in the first quarter was somewhat weaker than we expected given our pipeline at year end,” said Kevin P. Riley, President and Chief Executive Officer of First Interstate BancSystem, Inc. “While the first quarter is a seasonally slower period, our loan balances came in lower than expected as we are seeing heightened competition in certain loan segments such as commercial real estate, with many deals not meeting our criteria for pricing and structure. As we enter the seasonally stronger second quarter, we are seeing a pick up in commercial, residential mortgage, construction and agriculture lending opportunities that should help drive improved results next quarter," continued Mr. Riley.

DIVIDEND DECLARATION

On April 17, 2017, the Company's board of directors declared a dividend of $0.24 per common share, payable on May 12, 2017 to owners of record as of May 2, 2017. This dividend equates to a 2.3% annual yield based on the $41.64 average closing price of the Company's common stock during first quarter 2017.

PENDING ACQUISITION OF CASCADE BANCORP

During first quarter 2017, the Company received regulatory approval to acquire all of the outstanding stock of Cascade Bancorp, parent company of Bank of the Cascades, an Oregon-based community bank with 50 banking offices across Oregon, Idaho and Washington. Upon completion of the acquisition, the Company will become a regional community bank with over $12 billion in total assets and a geographic footprint that will span Montana, Wyoming, South Dakota, Idaho, Oregon and Washington.

“We are pleased to be ahead of schedule in completing our merger with Cascade Bancorp and now expect to close the transaction by the end of May, pending shareholder approval," said Mr. Riley. "We continue to anticipate that the synergies from this merger, combined with our entrance into markets with more robust economies, will have a positive impact on our ability to generate profitable growth for the shareholders of the combined company,” continued Mr. Riley.

NET INTEREST INCOME

The Company's net interest income, on a fully taxable equivalent basis, decreased $4.8 million, or 6.4%, to $70.0 million during first quarter 2017, as compared to $74.7 million during fourth quarter 2016, and increased $938 thousand, or 1.4%, from $69.0 million during first quarter 2016. Included in fourth quarter 2016 net interest income was $1.8 million of interest income related to non-accrual loans that was attributable to the first three quarters of 2016. The remaining decrease in net interest income during first quarter 2017, as compared to fourth quarter 2016, was primarily due to two less accrual days, an approximate 3 basis point reduction in loan yield, of which 2 basis points were due to fluctuations in interest accretion related to acquired loans, and a 6 basis point increase in funding costs. Interest accretion attributable to the fair valuation of acquired loans contributed $1.2 million of interest income during first quarter 2017, as compared to $1.6 million during fourth quarter 2016 and $1.6 million during first quarter 2016.

The impact of these items resulted in compression of the Company's reported net interest margin ratio. The Company's net interest margin ratio decreased 13 basis points to 3.49% during first quarter 2017, as compared to 3.62% during fourth quarter 2016, and decreased 5 basis points from 3.54% during first quarter 2016. Exclusive of interest accretion related to acquired loans, the impact of recoveries of charged-off interest and the fourth quarter 2016 interest adjustment, the Company's core net interest margin ratio was 3.41% during first quarter 2017, as compared to 3.44% during fourth quarter 2016 and 3.45% during first quarter 2016.

PROVISION FOR LOAN LOSSES

The Company recorded a provision for loan losses of $1.7 million during first quarter 2017, compared to $1.1 million during fourth quarter 2016, and $4.0 million during first quarter 2016. Fluctuations in the provision for loan losses reflect management's estimate of possible loan losses based upon evaluation of the borrowers' ability to repay, collateral value underlying loans, loan loss trends and estimated effects of current economic conditions on our loan portfolio.

NON-INTEREST INCOME

Non-interest income decreased $5.7 million, or 16.4%, to $29.1 million during first quarter 2017, as compared to $34.8 million during fourth quarter 2016, and increased $471 thousand, or 1.6%, from $28.6 million during first quarter 2016. First quarter decreases, as compared to fourth quarter 2016, were primarily due to declines in fee-based revenues, particularly mortgage banking revenues, wealth management revenues and other service charges, commissions and fees. In addition, during fourth quarter 2016, the Company recorded a $400 thousand non-core recovery of prior year litigation expense.

Mortgage banking revenues decreased $2.4 million, or 26.5%, to $6.5 million during first quarter 2017, as compared to $8.9 million during fourth quarter 2016, due to seasonal declines in mortgage loan production. During first quarter 2017, the Company's overall mortgage loan production decreased 38%, as compared to fourth quarter 2016, and 5% as compared to first quarter 2016, with loans originated for home purchases accounting for approximately 54% of production during first quarter 2017, as compared to 59% during fourth quarter 2016 and 57% during first quarter 2016. Decreases in mortgage banking revenues due to lower production in first quarter 2017, as compared to first quarter 2016, were partially offset by increases in gains on loan sale margins.

Wealth management revenues decreased $711 thousand, or 12.4%, to $5.0 million during first quarter 2017, as compared to $5.7 million during fourth quarter 2016, primarily due to lower brokerage revenues. Wealth management revenues increased $438 thousand, or 9.6%, to $5.0 million during first quarter 2017, as compared to $4.6 million during first quarter 2016.

Other service charges, commissions and fees decreased $749 thousand, or 21.9%, to $2.7 million during first quarter 2017, as compared to $3.4 million during fourth quarter 2016, due to decreases in fees from interest rate swaps.

Payment services revenues decreased $271 thousand, or 3.1%, to $8.4 million during first quarter 2017, as compared to $8.7 million during fourth quarter 2016, primarily due to seasonal declines in credit and debit card activity that typically occur during the first quarter of each year. Payment services revenues increased $454 thousand, or 5.7%, to $8.4 million during first quarter 2017, as compared to $8.0 million during first quarter 2016, due to increases in credit card interchange fees resulting primarily from higher business card transaction volumes.

NON-INTEREST EXPENSE

Non-interest expense decreased $5.9 million, or 8.5%, to $63.7 million during first quarter 2017, as compared to $69.6 million during fourth quarter 2016, primarily due to lower incentive compensation and profit sharing accruals, which were partially offset by higher employee benefits and separation expenses. Non-interest expense increased $1.4 million, or 2.3%, to $63.7 million during first quarter 2016, as compared to $62.3 million during first quarter 2016. Included in non-interest expense were acquisition expenses of $705 thousand during first quarter 2017 and $1.6 million during fourth quarter 2016. No acquisition expenses were recorded during first quarter 2016.

Salaries and wages expense decreased $3.2 million, or 11.0%, to $25.7 million during first quarter 2017, as compared to $28.9 million during fourth quarter 2016, and increased $473 thousand, or 1.9%, as compared to first quarter 2016. Variances in salaries and wages expense between periods were primarily due to fluctuations in incentive compensation expenses, which are reflective of the Company's performance against pre-established performance metrics. In addition, the Company recorded one-time separation expenses of $727 thousand during first quarter 2017, as compared to $444 thousand during fourth quarter 2016 and $948 thousand during first quarter 2016.

Benefits expense increased $708 thousand, or 7.9%, to $9.6 million during first quarter 2017, as compared to $8.9 million during fourth quarter 2016, and remained stable as compared to $9.6 million during first quarter 2016. Linked-quarter increases were due to higher payroll tax expense, which typically occurs during the first part of each year until compensation tax limits are met.

Other expenses decreased $2.6 million, or 11.4%, to $20.0 million during first quarter 2017, as compared to $22.6 million during fourth quarter 2016, primarily due to fluctuations in operating expenses. Other expenses increased slightly to $20.0 million during first quarter 2017, from $19.7 million during first quarter 2016.

INCOME TAXES

As a result of the January 1, 2017 adoption of Accounting Standards Update 2016-09, "Compensation-Stock Compensation (Topic 718)", the Company’s income tax expense during the first quarter of 2017 included a tax benefit of $1.4 million related to the exercise of outstanding stock option awards. Exclusive of the effect of this tax benefit, the Company's effective tax rate for the first quarter of 2017 was 33.3%, as compared to 33.7% for the first quarter of 2016.

LOANS

Loans held for investment decreased $40 million, or less than 1.0%, to $5.4 billion as of March 31, 2017, from $5.4 billion as of December 31, 2016, with the most significant decreases occurring in residential and construction real estate loans. Year-over-year, loans held for investment increased $185 million, or 3.6%, to $5.4 billion as of March 31, 2017, from $5.2 billion as of March 31, 2016, with approximately $83 million of this growth due to the acquisition of Flathead Bank in August 2016.

Residential real estate loans decreased $23 million, or 2.3%, to $1.0 billion as of March 31, 2017, from $1.0 billion as of December 31, 2016. Exclusive of acquired Flathead Bank loans, residential real estate loans decreased $38 million, or 3.7%, year-over-year. These decreases were primarily due to scheduled loan repayments.

Construction loans decreased $17 million, or 3.4%, to $465 million as of March 31 2017, from $482 million as of December 31, 2016, with approximately half of the decline occurring in land acquisition and development loans. Management attributes the decline in construction loans to adverse weather conditions. Exclusive of acquired Flathead Bank loans, construction loans increased $18 million, or 4.0%, year-over-year.

The Company experienced organic growth in indirect consumer loans, which increased $10 million, or 1.3%, to $762 million as of March 31, 2017, from $752 million as of December 31, 2016, and $111 million, or 17.1%, from $651 million as of March 31, 2016, due to increases in loan volumes within the Company's existing dealer network.

Loans held for sale consist of residential mortgage loans pending sale to investors in the secondary market. Loans held for sale decreased $39 million, or 62.4%, to $23 million as of March 31, 2017, from $62 million as of December 31, 2016, and decreased $30 million, or 56.1%, from $53.0 million as of March 31, 2016. The Company typically experiences a seasonal decline in residential mortgage loan activity during the first quarter of each year, which was exacerbated by the harsh winter.

DEPOSITS

Total deposits decreased $76 million, or 1.0%, to $7.3 billion as of March 31, 2017, from $7.4 billion as of December 31, 2016, and exclusive of the deposits acquired as part of the Flathead Bank acquisition, remained flat as compared to March 31, 2016. The Company has historically experienced a decline in deposits during the first quarter of each year. As of March 31, 2017, the mix of deposits was 25% non-interest bearing demand, 31% interest bearing demand, 30% savings and 14% time.

Securities sold under repurchase agreements increased $50 million to $588 million as of March 31, 2017, from $538 million as of December 31, 2016. As of March 31, 2017, all outstanding repurchase agreements were due in one day.

CREDIT QUALITY

Non-performing assets increased slightly to $89 million, or 0.98% of total assets as of March 31, 2017, as compared to $87 million, or 0.96% of total assets, as of December 31, 2016. Criticized loans increased $11 million, or 3.0%, to $384 million as of March 31, 2017, from $372 million as of December 31, 2016,with the largest increase occurring in the substandard category. Substandard loans increased $28 million, or 16.3%, to $200 million as of March 31, 2017, as compared to $172 million as of December 31, 2016, due to the downgrade of the loans of two commercial borrowers aggregating $23 million. The increase in substandard loans was partially offset by decreases in special mention loans. Special mention loans decreased $19 million, or 11.5%, to $145 million as of March 31, 2017, as compared to $164 million as of December 31, 2016, primarily due to the upgrade of the loans of two commercial real estate borrowers aggregating $12 million and the pay-off of the loans of one agricultural borrower aggregating $5 million.

Net loan charge-offs decreased to $1.7 million during first quarter 2017, as compared to $6.1 million during fourth quarter 2016, and increased $820 thousand from $893 thousand during first quarter 2016. The Company's allowance for loan losses as a percentage of period end loans increased slightly to 1.41% as of March 31, 2017, compared to 1.39% as of December 31, 2016.

NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES

In addition to results presented in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States of America, or GAAP, this release contains certain non-GAAP financial measures that management uses to provide supplemental perspectives on capital adequacy, operating results, performance trends and financial condition. These non-GAAP financial measures may not be comparable to similarly titled measures reported by other companies because other companies may not calculate these non-GAAP measures in the same manner. As a result, the usefulness of these measures to investors may be limited, and they should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for measures prepared in accordance with GAAP.

The Company adjusts certain capital adequacy measures to exclude intangible assets except mortgage servicing rights. Management believes these non-GAAP financial measures, which are intended to complement the capital ratios defined by banking regulators, are useful to investors in evaluating the Company's performance due to the importance that analysts place on these ratios and also allow investors to compare certain aspects of the Company's capitalization to other companies.

The Company also adjusts earnings and certain performance ratios to exclude certain non-core revenues and expenses, including investment securities net gains or losses, acquisition expenses consisting primarily of professional fees, and nonrecurring litigation expenses and recoveries. Management believes these non-GAAP financial measures are useful to investors in evaluating operating trends by excluding amounts which the Company views as unrelated to its normalized operations. These non-core income and expense adjustments may be presented before or net of estimated income tax expense. In addition, the Company adjusts net income to exclude income tax expense and provision for loan losses. Management believes this non-GAAP financial measure is useful to investors in evaluating operating trends by excluding pre-tax amounts which the Company views as fluctuating widely based on economic conditions.

See the Non-GAAP Financial Measures table included herein for a reconciliation of the above described non-GAAP financial measures to their most directly comparable GAAP financial measures.
