Company Release - 10/24/2018 6:32 PM ET

BILLINGS, Mont.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- First Interstate BancSystem, Inc. (NASDAQ: FIBK) today reported financial results for the third quarter of 2018. For the quarter, the Company reported net income of $41.4 million, or $0.71 per share, which compares to net income of $41.7 million, or $0.74 per share, for the second quarter of 2018, and $27.3 million, or $0.48 per share, for the third quarter of 2017. Third quarter 2018 earnings were impacted by the acquisition costs related to the acquisition of Northwest Bancorporation, Inc. (“Northwest”) and its wholly-owned subsidiary, Inland Northwest Bank (“INB”), which reduced earnings by $0.04 per share.

HIGHLIGHTS

  • Successful completion of the acquisition of Northwest on August 16, 2018.
  • Announced the signing of definitive agreements with two deposit-rich franchises, Idaho Independent Bank and Community 1st Bank, headquartered in attractive, high growth markets in Idaho.
  • Acquisition related expenses of $3.1 million this quarter, compared to $13.0 million in the third quarter of 2017. The after-tax impact of acquisition related expenses on earnings per share was $0.04 and $0.15 per share for the respective periods.
  • Net interest margin ratio increased to 3.88% for the third quarter of 2018, a one basis point increase from the prior quarter and reflects a 17 basis point increase from the same period in the prior year. Excluding the impact of charged-off interest and interest accretion on acquired loans, the net interest margin ratio was 3.73%, an increase of four basis points from the prior quarter and 24 basis points from the same period in the prior year.
  • Organic deposit growth of $203.8 million in the third quarter of 2018, or 8.1% annualized growth. The increase was primarily driven by an increase in non-interest bearing and time deposits, partially offset by a decline in demand deposits.
  • Organic loan growth of $46.2 million in the third quarter of 2018, or 2.4% annualized growth. The increase was primarily driven by an increase in agricultural and consumer loans and commercial and residential real estate loans, partially offset by a decline in commercial loans.
  • Asset quality improvement in the third quarter of 2018, resulting in a $6.6 million, or 7.3%, decrease in non-performing assets and excluding the impact from the INB acquisition, a $19.0 million decrease in criticized loans, as compared to the second quarter of 2018.

“We executed well in the third quarter. The team we have assembled has done an amazing job delivering strong financial results while completing the acquisition of Northwest Bancorporation and making good progress on the integration of its operations,” said Kevin P. Riley, President and Chief Executive Officer of First Interstate BancSystem, Inc. “Excluding the impact of merger-related expenses, we are seeing positive trends in earnings being driven by the expansion of our net interest margin and improved efficiencies from our larger scale. At the same time, we continue to look for opportunities to expand our franchise and generate greater balance sheet growth. The acquisition of Northwest Bancorporation, and the pending acquisitions of Idaho Independent Bank and Community 1st Bank, substantially increases our presence in Idaho and our exposure to high growth markets. We believe the continued expansion of our franchise into markets with more robust economies will enhance our ability to generate profitable growth and create additional shareholder value in the future.”

DIVIDEND DECLARATION

On October 24, 2018, the Company’s board of directors declared a dividend of $0.28 per common share, payable on November 19, 2018, to common stockholders of record as of November 9, 2018. The dividend equates to a 2.51% annualized yield based on the $44.54 per share average closing price of the Company’s common stock as reported on NASDAQ during the third quarter of 2018.

COMPLETED ACQUISITIONS

On August 16, 2018, the Company completed its acquisition of Northwest, the parent company of INB, a Spokane, Washington based community bank with 20 banking offices across Idaho, Oregon and Washington. The Company is expected to merge INB with its existing bank subsidiary, First Interstate Bank, on November 13, 2018.

Consideration for the acquisition totaled $169.1 million consisting of the issuance of 3.8 million shares of the Company’s Class A common stock valued at $45.15 per share, the closing price of the Company’s Class A common stock as quoted on the NASDAQ stock exchange on the acquisition date. As of the acquisition date, Northwest had total assets with fair values of $890.5 million, total loans with fair values of $713.1 million and deposits with fair values of $696.3 million. The Company has recorded the fair values of the assets and liabilities acquired from INB provisionally, and will finalize the amounts in the coming months. In conjunction with the acquisition, the Company recorded provisional goodwill of $93.6 million and core deposit intangible assets of $15.7 million.

RECENTLY ANNOUNCED ACQUISITIONS

On October 11, 2018, the Company entered into a definitive agreement to acquire all of the outstanding stock of Idaho Independent Bank ("IIBK"), a community bank headquartered in Coeur d' Alene, Idaho with 11 banking offices across Idaho in an all-stock transaction valued at approximately $181.3 million in aggregate, or $22.73 per share of IIBK stock. The Company believes the transaction, if completed on the terms contemplated, will complement the Company's footprint and will provide the Company with an expanded presence in several high-growth markets, including Boise and Coeur d’Alene, Idaho. The transaction has been approved by the boards of directors of both companies and is expected to close and convert data processing systems in the second quarter of 2019, subject to customary conditions, including regulatory approval and IIBK shareholder approval.

On October 11, 2018, the Company also entered into a definitive agreement to acquire all of the outstanding stock of Community 1st Bank ("CMYF"), a community bank headquartered in Post Falls, Idaho with three banking offices in North Idaho in an all-stock transaction valued at approximately $21.5 million in aggregate, or $17.20 per share of CMYF stock. The Company believes the transaction, if completed on the terms contemplated, will complement the Company’s footprint and will provide the Company with an expanded presence in North Idaho's high-growth markets. The transaction has been approved by the boards of directors of both companies and is expected to close and convert data processing systems in the second quarter of 2019, subject to customary conditions, including regulatory approval and CMYF shareholder approval.

NET INTEREST INCOME

The Company’s net interest income increased $6.2 million, or 6.0%, to $110.0 million during the third quarter of 2018, compared to $103.8 million during the second quarter of 2018 as a result of the expansion in our net interest margin and the INB acquisition. Net interest income increased $9.2 million, or 9.1%, from $100.8 million during the third quarter of 2017, as a result of an expansion to our net interest margin and the INB acquisition.

Net interest income was positively impacted this quarter by the recovery of previously charged-off interest of $0.7 million, compared to the recovery of $1.9 million during the second quarter of 2018 and $2.0 million during the third quarter of 2017.

Interest accretion attributable to the fair valuation of acquired loans contributed $3.6 million to net interest income during the third quarter of 2018, of which approximately $1.5 million was related to early payoffs. This compares to interest accretion of $2.9 million in net interest income during the second quarter of 2018, of which approximately $1.1 million was related to early payoffs and interest accretion of $4.0 million in net interest income during the third quarter of 2017, of which approximately $2.1 million was related to early payoffs.

The Company’s net interest margin improved to 3.88% during the third quarter of 2018, or one basis point, as compared to the second quarter of 2018, primarily as a result of higher rates on interest earning assets. Exclusive of the impact of the recovery of charged-off interest and the impact of interest accretion on acquired loans, the Company’s net interest margin ratio expanded four basis points to 3.73% during the third quarter of 2018, compared to 3.69% during the second quarter of 2018, and expanded 24 basis points compared to 3.49% during the third quarter of 2017.

PROVISION FOR LOAN LOSSES

The Company recorded a provision for loan losses of $2.0 million during the third quarter of 2018, compared to $2.9 million during the second quarter of 2018, and $3.4 million during the third quarter of 2017. The Company’s allowance for loan losses as a percentage of period-end loans was 0.86%, and coverage of non-performing loans was 110.8%.

The Company’s allowance for loan losses combined with the remaining loan discount on the acquired portfolios was 1.34%, 1.27% and 1.39% of total loans at September 30, 2018, June 30, 2018 and September 30, 2017, respectively.

NON-INTEREST INCOME

Total non-interest income decreased $1.4 million, or 3.7%, to $36.2 million during the third quarter of 2018, as compared to $37.6 million during the second quarter of 2018, primarily due to decreases in payment services revenues related to the Durbin Amendment, described below, which was offset by increases in other income. Total non-interest income decreased $2.1 million, or 5.5%, from $38.3 million during the third quarter of 2017 primarily as a result of the impact of the Durbin Amendment and decreases in mortgage banking revenues.

Payment services revenues decreased $2.8 million, or 21.7%, to $10.1 million during the third quarter of 2018, as compared to $12.9 million during the second quarter of 2018. Payment services revenues decreased $2.3 million, or 18.5%, from $12.4 million during the third quarter of 2017. A decrease in payment services revenues of $3.2 million during the third quarter of 2018 was attributable to the Durbin Amendment rule (which limits the amount of interchange fees certain banks may charge) which impacted our Company beginning July 1, 2018. This decrease was offset by increases in debit card and credit card volume during the third quarter of 2018.

Mortgage banking revenues decreased $0.5 million, or 6.9%, to $6.7 million during the third quarter of 2018, as compared to $7.2 million during the second quarter of 2018. During the third quarter of 2018, loans originated for home purchases accounted for approximately 85.1% of loan production, as compared to 80.0% during the second quarter of 2018 and 78.7% during the third quarter of 2017. Mortgage banking revenues decreased $1.5 million, or 18.3%, during the third quarter of 2018 from $8.2 million during the third quarter of 2017.

Other income increased $1.9 million, or 73.1%, to $4.5 million during the third quarter of 2018, as compared to $2.6 million during the second quarter of 2018. Other income increased $1.5 million, or 50.0%, during the third quarter of 2018 from $3.0 million during the third quarter of 2017. The increase in other income is primarily due to a $1.7 million valuation adjustment of our class B shares of Visa, Inc.

NON-INTEREST EXPENSE

Non-interest expense increased $5.8 million, or 6.8%, to $90.7 million during the third quarter of 2018, as compared to $84.9 million during the second quarter of 2018, primarily due to non-interest expenses of $2.5 million related to the INB acquisition and $3.1 million in acquisition related costs. Non-interest expense decreased $4.0 million, or 4.2%, from $94.7 million during the third quarter of 2017.

Acquisition related expenses for the third quarter of 2018 and the third quarter of 2017 were $3.1 million and $13.0 million, respectively. There were no acquisition related expenses during the second quarter of 2018. The after-tax impact of acquisition related expenses on earnings per share was $0.04 and $0.15 per share for the respective quarterly periods. The following table presents, for the periods indicated, acquisition related expenses.

  Quarter Ended
Sep 30, 2018   Jun 30, 2018   Mar 31, 2018   Dec 31, 2017   Sep 30, 2017
Legal and professional fees $ 2.4   $   $ 0.5   $ 0.6   $ 2.5
Employee expenses 0.1 1.7
Technology conversion and contract terminations 0.5 1.5 2.4 7.1
Other 0.1     0.2   0.3   1.7
Total acquisition related expenses $ 3.1   $   $ 2.3   $ 3.3   $ 13.0

Exclusive of $2.5 million of non-interest expenses from INB and acquisition related expenses, non-interest expense was $85.1 million during the third quarter of 2018, compared to $84.9 million during the second quarter of 2018. Exclusive of acquisition related expenses, non-interest expense was $81.7 million during the third quarter of 2017, with the year-over-year increase primarily attributable to salaries and wages and employee benefits.

Salary and wage expenses increased $2.5 million, or 7.3%, to $36.8 million during the third quarter of 2018, compared to $34.3 million during the second quarter of 2018. This increase reflects an increase in the incentive accrual and $1.4 million in salaries related to the INB acquisition. Salaries and wage expenses increased $2.1 million, or 6.1%, from $34.7 million in the third quarter of 2017. These increases reflect the salaries and wages for INB employees who joined the Company in August 2018.

Employee benefit expenses decreased $0.4 million, or 3.3%, to $11.9 million during the third quarter of 2018, as compared to $12.3 million during the second quarter of 2018. Employee benefit expenses increased $1.7 million, or 16.7%, from $10.2 million during the third quarter of 2017, primarily due to an increase in profit sharing plan expense.

Occupancy and equipment expense increased $1.1 million, or 12.4%, to $10.0 million during the third quarter of 2018, as compared to $8.9 million during the second quarter of 2018. Occupancy and equipment expense increased $0.8 million, or 8.7%, during the third quarter of 2018 from $9.2 million during the third quarter of 2017. The increases in occupancy and equipment expense is primarily due to increases related to the INB acquisition and higher maintenance costs in the third quarter of 2018.

Other expenses decreased $1.1 million, or 4.0%, to $26.7 million during the third quarter of 2018, as compared to $27.8 million during the second quarter of 2018. This decrease is primarily due to higher professional fees paid to third parties related to process improvement and CECL initiatives, along with the write-down of a bank property held for sale during the second quarter of 2018. Year-over-year, other expenses increased $1.2 million, or 4.7%, from $25.5 million during the third quarter of 2017, primarily due to an increase in the size of the Company due to the recent acquisitions.

BALANCE SHEET

Total assets increased $1,112.9 million, or 9.1%, over the second quarter of 2018 and $1,142.1 million from $12,206.5 million as of September 30, 2017 primarily as a result of the recent acquisition of Northwest and an increase in our outstanding loan balances which was partially offset by a decrease in investment securities.

Total loans increased $759.3 million, or 9.8%, to $8,518.0 million as of September 30, 2018, from $7,758.7 million as of June 30, 2018, due to $713.1 million related to the INB acquisition and $46.2 million of organic growth. Organic growth was primarily in consumer and agricultural loans and commercial and residential real estate loans. Total loans increased $965.9 million, from $7,552.1 million as of September 30, 2017, driven by the INB acquisition and organic growth of $252.8 million.

Total real estate loans increased $563.9 million, or 10.8%, to $5,796.8 million as of September 30, 2018, from $5,232.9 million as of June 30, 2018.

Exclusive of INB acquired loans of $7.7 million, consumer loans increased $15.4 million, or 1.5%, primarily attributable to growth in the direct and indirect portfolios. Consumer loans increased $39.7 million, or 3.8%, from $1,038.6 million, as of September 30, 2017, primarily due to INB acquired loans and organic growth to the direct and indirect portfolios.

Commercial loans increased $71.2 million, or 5.6%, to $1,337.2 million as of September 30, 2018, from $1,266.0 million as of June 30, 2018.

Commercial loans increased $151.0 million, or 12.7%, from $1,186.2 million as of September 30, 2017, attributable to INB acquired loans and organic growth of $40.1 million, or 3.4%.

Agricultural loans increased $113.6 million, or 75.1%, to $264.8 million as of September 30, 2018, from $151.2 million as of June 30, 2018.

Agricultural loans increased $112.1 million, or 73.4%, from $152.7 million as of September 30, 2017, primarily due to INB acquired loans and organic growth of $10.4 million, or 6.8%.

Cash and cash equivalents increased $253.0 million, from $712.0 million as of June 30, 2018, to $965.0 million as of September 30, 2018. The increase is primarily attributable to increased deposits, cash and cash equivalents acquired in the INB acquisition, and a decrease in our investment portfolio during the third quarter of 2018.

Goodwill and intangible assets, excluding mortgage servicing rights, increased $107.3 million, from $519.2 million as of June 30, 2018, to $626.5 million as of September 30, 2018. The increase is attributable to provisional goodwill and core deposit intangibles acquired in the INB acquisition. Goodwill and intangible assets, excluding mortgage servicing rights, increased $102.5 million, from $524.0 million as of September 30, 2017. The increase is attributable to provisional goodwill and core deposit intangibles acquired in the INB acquisition offset by amortization expense of intangibles.

Total deposits increased $900.1 million, or 9.1%, to $10,845.6 million as of September 30, 2018, primarily as a result of the INB acquisition. Exclusive of the $696.3 million in deposits that were acquired, deposits grew organically $203.8 million, or 8.1%, annualized, compared to June 30, 2018. As of September 30, 2018, the mix of total deposits was 30.0% non-interest bearing demand, 27.8% interest bearing demand, 30.3% savings, and 11.9% time deposits, a slight shift from the prior quarter as INB deposit balances were more heavily weighted to non-interest bearing demand deposits.

The Company’s loan to deposit ratio was 78.5%, as of September 30, 2018, compared to 78.0% as of June 30, 2018 and up from 76.0% as of September 30, 2017.

The Company is considered to be “well-capitalized” as of September 30, 2018, having exceeded all regulatory capital adequacy requirements. During the third quarter of 2018, the Company paid common stock dividends of approximately $15.7 million, or $0.28 per share.

CREDIT QUALITY

As of September 30, 2018, non-performing assets decreased $6.6 million, or 7.3%, to $83.7 million, compared to $90.3 million as of June 30, 2018. Non-accrual loans decreased $8.1 million to $61.2 million as of September 30, 2018, as compared to $69.3 million during the second quarter of 2018 primarily due to execution and resolution of workout strategies within the commercial real estate and commercial portfolios. Accruing loans past due 90 days or more decreased $0.9 million, or 14.8%, primarily due to improvements in residential real estate loans. Other real estate owned increased $2.4 million, or 16.1%, from June 30, 2018 primarily as a result of the foreclosure of one commercial property and commercial property acquired from INB which were partially offset by property dispositions.

Criticized loans increased $42.7 million, or 11.2%, to $424.9 million as of September 30, 2018, from $382.2 million as of June 30, 2018, and increased $2.4 million from $422.5 million as of September 30, 2017, primarily as a result of the INB acquisition. INB criticized loans of $61.7 million resulted in increases to special mention of $43.1 million, substandard of $17.0 million and doubtful of $1.6 million. Legacy criticized loans decreased $19.0 million, primarily in the special mention and substandard categories.

Net loan charge-offs increased $0.2 million to $2.5 million during the third quarter of 2018, as compared to $2.3 million during the second quarter of 2018. The net loan charge-offs in the third quarter of 2018 were comprised of charge-offs of $4.8 million and recoveries of $2.3 million. Net loan charge-offs during the third quarter of 2017 were $4.6 million.

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 the following non-GAAP financial measures that management uses to evaluate capital adequacy: (i) tangible book value per common share; (ii) tangible common stockholders’ equity to tangible assets; (iii) tangible assets; (iv) tangible common stockholders’ equity; and (v) return on average tangible common equity. 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 because we exclude the impact on the Company’s performance of the amortization of intangible assets (except mortgage servicing rights) which, generally speaking, does not represent an actual cash expense and is inconsistent in the amount and frequency depending upon the timing and size of our acquisitions. This impacts the ratios which are important to analysts and also allow investors to compare certain aspects of the Company’s capitalization to other companies.

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.
