  • Total revenues (net interest income plus non-interest income) before provisions for loan losses grew from $27.4 million in Q1 2013 to $37.1 million in Q1 2014, an increase of 35.3%.
  • Provision expense for Q1 2014 was $4.4 million, principally as a result of the provision recorded to reflect the first quarter loan growth. This compares with a recovery of $0.5 million in Q4 2013 and a recovery of $0.1 million in Q1 2013.
  • Q1 2014 pre-tax pre-provision income of $15.9 million was up $2.6 million, or 19.5%, from Q4 2013, and up $5.0 million, or 45.9%, from Q1 2013. The pre-tax pre-provision ratio remained relatively stable at approximately 1.5% of average assets.
  • Q1 2014 non-interest expense of $21.2 million declined $1.1 million (5.1%) from Q4 2013 non-interest expense and increased $4.7 million (28.5%) compared to Q1 2013 non-interest expense of $16.5 million.
  • Non-performing loans not covered by FDIC loss share agreements were $12.6 million at March 31, 2014, a decrease of $0.9 million (6.7%) from the December 31, 2013 non-performing non-covered amount of $13.5 million. Non-covered non-performing loans were 0.32% of total non-covered loans as of March 31, 2014.

  • Capital ratios1 remained strong but declined during the period due to the increase in income producing assets. March 31, 2014 estimated Tier 1 Leverage was 9.10%, and Total Risk-Based Capital was 11.45%. The Company's capital ratios exceed the levels established for "well capitalized" banks.

"In Q1 2014 we focused our energies on increasing earning assets and aggregating deposits, more fully utilizing the capital raised during 2013," stated Jay Sidhu, Chairman and CEO of Customers Bancorp, Inc. "We originated nearly $700 million of loans during the first quarter of 2014 while maintaining our underwriting standards, and grew our deposits by over $600 million. In doing so we positioned the Company to achieve great things in 2014 and future years. We will continue to focus on developing revenues and controlling our expenses to build shareholder value as we move deeper into 2014."

Net Income, Earnings Per Share and Tangible Book Value

Q1 2014 net income of $8.1 million is up $0.9 million, or 13.2%, from Q1 2013. Q1 2014 diluted earnings per share is $0.32 with 25.3 million diluted shares, compared to Q1 2013 earnings of $7.2 million and diluted earnings per share of $0.38 with 18.9 million diluted shares. Customers' tangible book value per share increased to $16.35 as of March 31, 2014 compared to $14.78 as of March 31, 2013, an increase of 10.6%. The increase in net income in Q1 2014 compared to Q1 2013 is primarily due to increased net interest income, fueled by strong loan growth, while maintaining outstanding asset quality and growing deposits. The increasing tangible book value reflects Customers' strategic commitment to consistently maintain and grow tangible book value per share with the expectation that it will eventually result in superior shareholder value creation.

Net Interest Margin

The net interest margin decreased 14 basis points to 2.93% in Q1 2014 compared to Q4 2013, and decreased 33 basis points from Q1 2013. The Q1 2014 net interest margin has decreased due to the run-off of maturing higher yielding loans, and addition of lower yielding loans as we grew the loan portfolio by $900 million in Q1 2014. In addition, certain deposits and borrowings were extended during the quarter with higher rates and longer terms to maturity to better insulate the bank from future movement in interest rates.

Non-Interest Income

Q1 2014 non-interest income of $7.6 million was down $0.3 million compared to $7.9 million in Q4 2013, and up $2.7 million compared to $4.9 million in Q1 2013. The Q1 2014 non-interest income decrease compared to Q4 2013 resulted from lower mortgage warehouse transaction fees (down $0.6 million) activity reflecting the seasonal decrease in volume, mortgage banking fees (down $0.7 million) as originations decreased in the period, and gains on sale of Small Business Administration ("SBA") loans (down $0.5 million), offset in part by an increase in gains on sales of securities (up $1.6 million) as Customers shortened the duration of the securities portfolio. 

Non-Interest Expense

Operating expenses in Q1 2014 of $21.2 million decreased $1.1 million compared to Q4 2013 operating expenses of $22.3 million. Q1 2014 operating expenses supported greater business activities as Customers grew its loan portfolio significantly during Q1 2014 and the Company continued to invest in its commercial and industrial lending teams while rightsizing its mortgage banking business. These investments resulted in a larger organization and increased occupancy, technology, and other operating costs. However, these increased needs were largely offset in the quarter by efforts to manage costs and increase operating efficiencies including strategic realignment of staffing and compensation, higher bonus accrual in Q4 2013, and deferral of direct origination costs on the large volume of new loan originations.

Provision for Loan Losses and Asset Quality

The Q1 2014 provision for loan losses was $4.4 million, compared to a Q4 2013 provision reversal of ($0.5) million, and a Q1 2013 provision reversal of ($0.1) million2. The Q1 2014 provision is primarily the result of $0.9 billion in loan growth during the quarter.

Customers separates its loan portfolio into "covered" and "non-covered" loans for purposes of analyzing and managing asset quality. Covered loans are those loans that are covered by FDIC purchase and assumption, or loss sharing, agreements, and for which Customers is reimbursed 80% of allowable incurred losses. Covered loans totaled $61.6 million as of March 31, 2014, $66.7 million as of December 31, 2013, and $102.0 million as of March 31, 2013. Non-accrual covered loans totaled $5.5 million at March 31, 2014, $5.6 million at December 31, 2013 and $10.4 million at March 31, 2013. Covered real estate owned totaled $9.3 million as of March 31, 2014, $7.0 million as of December 31, 2013 and $4.3 million as of March 31, 2013.

2 Beginning in Q4 2013, the provision for loan losses is being reported net of the amount of estimated credit losses on covered loans to be recovered from the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (the "FDIC") pursuant to specific purchase and assumption, or loss sharing, agreements. Prior period amounts have been reclassified to be consistent with the Q4 2013 presentation. Previously changes in the amount recoverable from the FDIC had been reported as a separate amount in non-interest income.

Non-covered loans are all loans not covered by the FDIC agreements. Non-covered loans includes loans accounted for as held for sale as well as loans accounted for as held for investment. Non-covered loans totaled $4.0 billion as of March 31, 2014, $3.1 billion as of December 31, 2013, and $2.9 billion as of March 31, 2013. Non-accrual non-covered loans totaled $12.6 million as of March 31, 2014 (0.32% of total non-covered loans), $13.5 million (0.43% of total non-covered loans) as of December 31, 2013 and $21.4 million (0.75% of total non-covered loans) as of March 31, 2013. Non-covered loans 30 to 89 days delinquent at March 31, 2014 totaled $10.3 million, or 0.26% of non-covered loans.
