Hudson added, "During the quarter, we announced the upcoming acquisition of First Bank of the Palm Beaches. This acquisition builds upon our two previous Palm Beach County acquisitions and strengthens our presence in Florida's largest and the nation's seventh largest MSA. We are also excited to announce the acquisition of Fourth Street Banking Company, the holding company for Freedom Bank of St. Petersburg. This is an exceptional addition to our two previous acquisitions in the state's second largest MSA. The combination of this acquisition and the First Bank transaction will provide earnings per share accretion of more than 5% to 2021 and has minimal up front dilution to tangible book value per share, earned back in less than two years."

Charles M. Shaffer, Seacoast’s Chief Operating Officer and Chief Financial Officer, said, “We delivered another quarter of consistent growth in tangible book value per share, ending the period at $14.76, up 20% over the prior year. During the fourth quarter, net interest margin declined only 1 basis point excluding the impact of accretion of purchase discounts on acquired loans, demonstrating the exceptional quality of our balance sheet and customer franchise. This balance sheet is fortified with a robust capital base, strong asset quality and a prudent liquidity position. As the banking cycle continues to mature, Seacoast is committed to maintaining its fortress balance sheet, built on strong capital and strict credit underwriting.”

Fourth Quarter 2019 Financial Highlights

Income Statement

  • Net income was $27.2 million, or $0.52 per diluted share, compared to $25.6 million, or $0.49, for the prior quarter and $16.0 million, or $0.31, for the fourth quarter of 2018. For the year ended December 31, 2019, net income was $98.7 million, or $1.90 per diluted share, compared to $67.3 million, or $1.38, for the year ended December 31, 2018. Adjusted net income1 was $26.8 million, or $0.52 per diluted share, compared to $27.7 million, or $0.53, for the prior quarter and $23.9 million, or $0.47, for the fourth quarter of 2018. For the year ended December 31, 2019, adjusted net income1 was $104.6 million, or $2.01 per diluted share, compared to $79.1 million, or $1.62, for the year ended December 31, 2018.

  • Net revenues were $78.1 million, an increase of $3.2 million, or 4%, compared to the prior quarter, and an increase of $5.4 million, or 7%, compared to the fourth quarter of 2018. For the year ended December 31, 2019, net revenues were $300.4 million, an increase of $38.8 million, or 15%, compared to the year ended December 31, 2018. Adjusted revenues1 were $75.6 million, an increase of $0.8 million, or 1%, from the prior quarter and an increase of $2.8 million, or 4%, from the fourth quarter of 2018. For the year ended December 31, 2019, adjusted revenues1 were $298.2 million, an increase of $36.3 million, or 14%, compared to the year ended December 31, 2018.

  • Net interest income totaled $61.8 million, an increase of $0.8 million, or 1%, from the prior quarter and an increase of $1.8 million, or 3%, from the fourth quarter of 2018. For the year ended December 31, 2019, net interest income was $243.6 million, an increase of $32.1 million, or 15%, compared to the year ended December 31, 2018.

  • Net interest margin was 3.84% in the fourth quarter of 2019, 3.89% in the third quarter of 2019 and 4.00% in the fourth quarter of 2018. Quarter-over-quarter, the yield on loans contracted 17 basis points, the yield on securities contracted 12 basis points, and the cost of deposits decreased 12 basis points. The impact on net interest margin from accretion of purchase discounts on acquired loans was 21 basis points in the fourth quarter of 2019, compared to 25 basis points in the prior quarter and 27 basis points in the fourth quarter of 2018. Excluding the impact of accretion, the net interest margin decreased only 1 basis point from the prior quarter and the yield on loans contracted 13 basis points. Decreases in the yield on both loans and securities reflect the impact of a lower interest rate environment, affecting variable-rate portfolios and resulting in lower add-on rates for new loans originated and securities purchased.

  • Noninterest income totaled $16.4 million, an increase of $2.4 million, or 17%, compared to the prior quarter and an increase of $3.7 million, or 29%, from the fourth quarter of 2018. For the year ended December 31, 2019, noninterest income was $56.7 million, an increase of $6.7 million, or 13%, compared to the year ended December 31, 2018. Changes in noninterest income consisted of the following:

    • After a record third quarter boosted by refinance activity, mortgage banking fees decreased $0.6 million in the fourth quarter to $1.5 million. For the full year, mortgage banking fees increased $1.8 million, or 39%, to $6.5 million compared to the prior year, reflecting our strategic focus on generating saleable volume.
    • Interchange income increased $0.2 million, or 6%, in the fourth quarter, and $1.1 million, or 9%, for the full year, the result of increased transaction activity across a growing customer base.
    • Lower other income in the fourth quarter reflects the $1.0 million BOLI death benefit recorded in the third quarter partially offset by swap fees of $0.6 million in the fourth quarter of 2019.
    • During the quarter, securities gains of $2.5 million resulted from the opportunistic sale of $79.8 million of longer duration bonds yielding 2.8% transacted when the 10-year treasury rate declined early in the quarter.
  • The provision for loan losses was $4.8 million compared to $2.3 million in the prior quarter and $2.3 million in the fourth quarter of 2018. The increase in provision primarily reflects strong loan growth in the fourth quarter of 2019 and a modestly higher increase in net charge-offs during the fourth quarter when compared to the third quarter of 2019. Looking back over the last four quarters, net charge offs were 0.16% of average loans outstanding, in line with our expectations and reflecting continued strong asset quality trends.
  • Noninterest expense was $38.1 million, a decrease of $0.5 million, or 1%, compared to the prior quarter and a decrease of $11.4 million, or 23%, from the fourth quarter of 2018. For the year ended December 31, 2019, noninterest expense was $160.7 million, a decrease of $1.5 million, or 1%, compared to the year ended December 31, 2018. Changes from the third quarter of 2019 in noninterest expense consisted of the following:

    • Salaries and benefits decreased $1.0 million on a combined basis, the result of lower incentive accruals and our continued proven success at focusing on cost control across the franchise.
    • Legal and professional fees increased $0.4 million, including $0.6 million incurred in the fourth quarter for merger related activities.
    • Other expenses increased $0.6 million, including increases of $0.3 million in lending-related costs to support increased production and $0.2 million in recruiting and supporting the onboarding of new sales talent. For the full year, other expenses are down $2.0 million compared to 2018, reflecting our continued focus on efficiency and streamlining operations.
    • During the third quarter of 2019, the FDIC announced the achievement of their target deposit insurance reserve ratio, resulting in our ability to offset FDIC assessments with previously awarded credits. The Company has remaining credits of $0.7 million, which will be applied to future assessments if the FDIC’s reserve ratio remains above the target threshold.
  • Seacoast recorded $8.1 million in income tax expense in the fourth quarter of 2019, compared to $8.5 million in the prior quarter and $4.9 million in the fourth quarter of 2018. The prior quarter included net additional income tax expense of $0.7 million resulting from the change in the Florida corporate income tax rate.

  • Year to date adjusted revenues1 increased 14% compared to prior year while adjusted noninterest expense1 increased 3%, generating 11% operating leverage.

  • The efficiency ratio was 48.4% compared to 48.6% in the prior quarter and 65.8% in the fourth quarter of 2018. The adjusted efficiency ratio1 was 47.5% compared to 49.0% in the prior quarter and 54.2% in the fourth quarter of 2018.

    • The Company continues to prudently manage commercial real estate exposure. Construction and land development and commercial real estate loans remain well below regulatory guidance at 40% and 204% of total bank-level risk based capital, respectively, compared to 42% and 204%, respectively, in the third quarter of 2019. On a consolidated basis, construction and land development and commercial real estate loans represent 38% and 191%, respectively, of total consolidated risk based capital.
    • The funded balances of our top 10 and top 20 relationships represented 21% and 39%, respectively, of total consolidated risk based capital, compared to 22% and 37% in the fourth quarter of 2018 and 34% and 54% in the fourth quarter of 2016. Our average commercial loan size is $365,000.

  • Pipelines (loans in underwriting and approval or approved and not yet closed) totaled $339.2 million at December 31, 2019.

Adjusted ROTA1 was 1.57% compared to 1.67% in the prior quarter and 1.49% in the fourth quarter of 2018. The decline in adjusted ROTA1 in the current quarter reflects the impact of higher provision expense and substantial loan growth, partially offset by higher net interest income and lower noninterest expense.

Fourth Quarter and Full Year 2019 Operating Highlights

Modernizing How Seacoast Sells

  • In 2019, interchange income increased by $1.1 million, or 9%, compared to the prior year as Seacoast’s debit card program surpassed $1 billion in retail sales. The Company’s debit card program consistently performs in the top quartile of Visa partner banks of similar size.

  • Seacoast Wealth Management added approximately $140 million in new assets under management in 2019, growing 27% year-over-year. Growth in assets under management, industry leading products and investments in sales and support teams throughout the footprint resulted in a 7% increase year-over-year in wealth related revenue.

  • Seacoast has partnered with a leading consumer insights firm to capture and analyze feedback from customers. Program implementation and launch were completed in the third quarter of 2019, with the objective of identifying additional customer opportunities.

Lowering Cost to Serve

  • Seacoast consolidated three banking center locations in 2019, achieving the Vision 2020 objective of reducing the footprint by 20% to meet evolving customer needs. At December 31, 2019, deposits per banking center exceeded $116 million compared to $102 million at December 31, 2018. 

Driving Improvements to Operations

  • In 2019, Seacoast's continued focus on efficiency and streamlining operations improved adjusted noninterest expenses1 as a percent of average tangible assets to 2.11% in the fourth quarter compared to 2.46% a year ago.

  • Earlier this year, Seacoast further enhanced the interactive voice response (IVR) system in the Florida-based Customer Support Center. The system provides customers with secure, self-serve options and expedites call routing processes. During the fourth quarter of 2019, more than 215,000 routine customer service calls were serviced solely by the IVR system. This represented 71% of total customer service calls received. This investment should continue to provide added scalability and elevate the customer experience in 2020.

  • Late in 2018, Seacoast launched a large-scale initiative to implement a fully digital loan origination platform across all business banking units. In the fourth quarter of 2019, this platform enabled record loan originations in the commercial banking team. The Company recognized $350,000 in annualized expense reductions as a result of this platform implementation. This investment should lead to further gains in operational efficiency and banker productivity in 2020 and beyond.

Scaling and Evolving Seacoast's Culture

  • Seacoast's balanced growth strategy, combining organic growth with value-creating acquisitions, continues to benefit shareholders and provide new opportunities for associates. The pending acquisitions of First Bank of the Palm Beaches and Fourth Street Banking Company, subject to shareholder and regulatory approvals, will add experienced bankers in two growing markets and will further support the Company's sustainable and profitable growth.

Actual results may differ from those set forth in the forward-looking statements.

Forward-looking statements include statements with respect to our beliefs, plans, objectives, goals, expectations, anticipations, assumptions, estimates and intentions about future performance and involve known and unknown risks, uncertainties and other factors, which may be beyond our control, and which may cause the actual results, performance or achievements of Seacoast to be materially different from future results, performance or achievements expressed or implied by such forward-looking statements. You should not expect us to update any forward-looking statements.

All statements other than statements of historical fact could be forward-looking statements. You can identify these forward-looking statements through our use of words such as "may", "will", "anticipate", "assume", "should", "support", "indicate", "would", "believe", "contemplate", "expect", "estimate", "continue", "further", "plan", "point to", "project", "could", "intend", "target" or other similar words and expressions of the future. These forward-looking statements may not be realized due to a variety of factors, including, without limitation: the effects of future economic and market conditions, including seasonality; governmental monetary and fiscal policies, including interest rate policies of the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve, as well as legislative, tax and regulatory changes; changes in accounting policies, rules and practices; the risks of changes in interest rates on the level and composition of deposits, loan demand, liquidity and the values of loan collateral, securities, and interest sensitive assets and liabilities; interest rate risks, sensitivities and the shape of the yield curve; uncertainty related to the impact of LIBOR calculations on securities and loans; changes in borrower credit risks and payment behaviors; changes in the availability and cost of credit and capital in the financial markets; changes in the prices, values and sales volumes of residential and commercial real estate; our ability to comply with any regulatory requirements; the effects of problems encountered by other financial institutions that adversely affect us or the banking industry; our concentration in commercial real estate loans; the failure of assumptions and estimates, as well as differences in, and changes to, economic, market and credit conditions; the impact on the valuation of our investments due to market volatility or counterparty payment risk; statutory and regulatory dividend restrictions; increases in regulatory capital requirements for banking organizations generally; the risks of mergers, acquisitions and divestitures, including our ability to continue to identify acquisition targets and successfully acquire desirable financial institutions; changes in technology or products that may be more difficult, costly, or less effective than anticipated; our ability to identify and address increased cybersecurity risks; inability of our risk management framework to manage risks associated with our business; dependence on key suppliers or vendors to obtain equipment or services for our business on acceptable terms; reduction in or the termination of our ability to use the mobile-based platform that is critical to our business growth strategy; the effects of war or other conflicts, acts of terrorism, natural disasters or other catastrophic events that may affect general economic conditions; unexpected outcomes of, and the costs associated with, existing or new litigation involving us; our ability to maintain adequate internal controls over financial reporting; potential claims, damages, penalties, fines and reputational damage resulting from pending or future litigation, regulatory proceedings and enforcement actions; the risks that our deferred tax assets could be reduced if estimates of future taxable income from our operations and tax planning strategies are less than currently estimated and sales of our capital stock could trigger a reduction in the amount of net operating loss carryforwards that we may be able to utilize for income tax purposes; the effects of competition from other commercial banks, thrifts, mortgage banking firms, consumer finance companies, credit unions, securities brokerage firms, insurance companies, money market and other mutual funds and other financial institutions operating in our market areas and elsewhere, including institutions operating regionally, nationally and internationally, together with such competitors offering banking products and services by mail, telephone, computer and the Internet; and the failure of assumptions underlying the establishment of reserves for possible loan losses.

The risks relating to the proposed First Bank and Fourth Street mergers include, without limitation: the timing to consummate the proposed mergers; the risk that a condition to closing of the proposed mergers may not be satisfied; the risk that a regulatory approval that may be required for the proposed mergers is not obtained or is obtained subject to conditions that are not anticipated; the diversion of management time on issues related to the proposed mergers; unexpected transaction costs, including the costs of integrating operations; the risks that the businesses will not be integrated successfully or that such integration may be more difficult, time- consuming or costly than expected; the potential failure to fully or timely realize expected revenues and revenue synergies, including as the result of revenues following the mergers being lower than expected; the risk of deposit and customer attrition; any changes in deposit mix; unexpected operating and other costs, which may differ or change from expectations; the risks of customer and employee loss and business disruptions, including, without limitation, as the result of difficulties in maintaining relationships with employees; increased competitive pressures and solicitations of customers by competitors; as well as the difficulties and risks inherent with entering new markets.

All written or oral forward-looking statements attributable to us are expressly qualified in their entirety by this cautionary notice, including, without limitation, those risks and uncertainties described in our annual report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2018, under "Special Cautionary Notice Regarding Forward-looking Statements" and "Risk Factors", and otherwise in our SEC reports and filings.

Explanation of Certain Unaudited Non-GAAP Financial Measures

This presentation contains financial information determined by methods other than Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (“GAAP”). Management uses these non-GAAP financial measures in its analysis of the Company’s performance and believes these presentations provide useful supplemental information, and a clearer understanding of the Company’s performance. The Company believes the non-GAAP measures enhance investors’ understanding of the Company’s business and performance and if not provided would be requested by the investor community. These measures are also useful in understanding performance trends and facilitate comparisons with the performance of other financial institutions. The limitations associated with operating measures are the risk that persons might disagree as to the appropriateness of items comprising these measures and that different companies might define or calculate these measures differently. The Company provides reconciliations between GAAP and these non-GAAP measures. These disclosures should not be considered an alternative to GAAP.
