Financial results reflect continued momentum in core business

The Company's Chief Executive Officer Kevin Tylus noted, "The announcement today of our second quarter results further validates our efforts in repositioning and rebranding the Company and Royal Bank. Commercial and consumer loan growth, stronger credit quality of the new loans and our expense monitoring efforts have combined to improve core earnings. The redesigned cash management suite is attaining and retaining commercial relationships. We are excitedly anticipating the debut of our new tech-based Northern Liberties branch, which will feature an in-lobby state of the art assisted service teller machine. Our redesigned products and contemporary technology are the future platform for enhanced banking convenience for commercial, consumer and retail customers. Also we are extremely pleased with the outcome of our TARP auction which replaced $11.6 million of preferred equity with common tangible equity that was primarily acquired by new shareholders as part of the recent private placement."

The $2.2 million quarterly improvement was mainly related to the following items:

  • Net interest income grew $641,000, or 13%.
  • Professional and legal fees dropped $419,000, or 52%.
  • Credit related expenses decreased $153,000, or 21%.
  • Salaries and benefits declined $241,000, or 9%.
  • The 2013 quarter included a legal settlement expense related to a tax lien subsidiary, of which the Company's share was $990,000.

The $3.6 million improvement for the first six months of 2014 from the same period in 2013 was mainly related to the following items:

  • Net interest income grew $1.4 million, or 14%.
  • Professional and legal fees dropped $476,000, or 32%.
  • Salaries and benefits declined $650,000, or 12%.
  • Credit related expenses decreased $433,000, or 33%.
  • Credit for loan and lease losses improved $300,000 due to the continued positive progress in loan credit quality.
  • As mentioned previously, 2013 included a legal settlement expense related to a tax lien subsidiary, of which the Company's share was $990,000.

Partially offsetting these noteworthy items for the quarter and six months ended June 30, 2014 were increases of $75,000 and $135,000, respectively, in occupancy and equipment expenses and increases of $57,000 and $128,000 in marketing and advertising expenses. The Company's leasing subsidiary positively contributed to the quarterly and year-to-date financial results.

Loans and leases held for investment at June 30, 2014 totaled $377.8 million compared to $366.5 million at December 31, 2013. The modest net loan growth of $11.3 million was directly impacted by an approximate $12.0 million decline in classified loans due to payoffs and pay downs coupled with payoffs of out of market loans. The commercial loan pipeline continues to strengthen. Investment securities available for sale decreased $27.6 million while total cash and cash equivalents grew $11.3 million from the levels at December 31, 2013. While deposits declined $2.1 million from $529.0 million at December 31, 2013, the new retail strategy launch improved the deposit composition. Total checking, money market and savings accounts improved $11.7 million while certificates of deposit declined $13.8 million. Total borrowings decreased $10.2 million since December 31, 2013.

Net Interest Margin

For the second quarter of 2014, the net interest margin of 3.25% grew 35 basis points from the equivalent quarter in 2013 and 13 basis points from the quarter ended December 31, 2013. For the six months ended June 30, 2014 the net interest margin was 3.24% compared to 2.82% for the same period in 2013. Net interest income increased $641,000 and $1.4 million for the three and six months ended June 30, 2014, respectively, from their comparable periods in 2013. The quarterly and yearly increase in net interest income was primarily attributed to an increase in the interest income earned on investments coupled with a reduction in interest expense. Quarter over quarter average interest-bearing deposits declined $4.7 million, of which $5.6 million was in higher-cost time deposits, while demand deposits rose $5.8 million. For the quarter ended June 30, 2014, average interest-earning assets increased $5.3 million from the quarter ended June 30, 2013 and included a 24 basis point enhancement in the average yield on such assets. Average loans and investments grew $6.9 million and $4.9 million, respectively. Average cash declined $6.5 million as it was deployed into loans and investments. For the second quarter of 2014, the average rate paid on interest-bearing liabilities was 1.09% compared to 1.20% for the 2013 comparable quarter.

For the six months ended June 30, 2014 average interest-earning assets declined $4.8 million from the same period in 2013; however, the average yield on such assets grew 28 basis points. Year over year average loans increased $10.1 million while average cash and investments declined $7.8 million and $7.1 million primarily to fund the growth in loans. Despite the decline in average investments, the average yield on such investments grew 87 basis points.

Asset quality continues improvement

Nonperforming loans were $9.1 million, $10.2 million and $17.8 million at June 30, 2014, December 31, 2013 and June 30, 2013, respectively, and the ratio of nonperforming loans to total loans was 2.4%, 2.8%, and 4.8% for the same periods. Improved asset quality led to a reduction in credit quality expenses of $153,000 in the second quarter of 2014 when compared to the second quarter of 2013 and a reduction of $433,000 for the first six months of 2014 from the comparable period in 2013. Additionally for the first half of 2014, the credit for loan and lease losses increased $300,000 from the first half of 2013. During the first six months of 2014, classified and impaired loans declined nearly $20 million due to pay downs, payoffs and upgrades. Non-performing assets were $18.9 million, $19.8 million and $27.6 million at June 30, 2014, December 31, 2013, and June 30, 2013, respectively.

Private placement and shareholder rights offering

On June 20, 2014, the United States Department of Treasury ("Treasury") announced that it had priced auctions of preferred stock of six institutions, including all of the 30,407 shares of the Fixed Rate Cumulative Perpetual Preferred Stock, Series A (the "Series A Preferred Stock"), issued by the Company to the Treasury in 2009. The Series A Preferred Stock was priced in the auction at $1,207.11 per share for all 30,407 shares of Series A Preferred Stock outstanding. As previously disclosed, the Company was a bidder in the auction and was allocated 11,551 shares of Series A Preferred Stock for repurchase at the clearing price of $1,207.11. Closing for the sale of the Series A Preferred Stock by Treasury, including the repurchase of 11,551 shares of Series A Preferred Stock by the Company, occurred on July 2, 2014. To fund the purchase of the Series A Preferred Stock, the Company sold 11,267,037 shares of its Class A common stock in a private placement transaction at a price of $1.20 per share. As a result of the successful participation in the auction, the Company is currently conducting a shareholder rights offering to shareholders of record as of April 7, 2014. The private placement received shareholder approval in 2013 and both the private placement and shareholder rights offering bring new shareholders and additional capital to the Company.

As described in the prospectus relating to the shareholder rights offering, the Company has elected to extend the expiration date of the rights offering to 5:00 p.m. Eastern Time on August 8, 2014. Shareholders of the Company who hold their shares through a broker, dealer, bank or other nominee should contact their nominee as soon as possible if they wish to participate in the rights offering and have not been contacted by their broker, dealer, bank or other nominee in connection with the rights offering.

Introduction of Royal Bank America's new logo

The Company has made significant progress in rebranding Royal Bank, revitalizing its retail footprint, and growing customer relationships. Additionally, with the celebration of Royal Bank America's 50th anniversary, management realized that Royal Bank's logo needed to be modernized to reflect this evolution.
