SAN JOSE, Calif., Jan. 27, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Heritage Commerce Corp (Nasdaq:HTBK), the holding company ("the Company") for Heritage Bank of Commerce ("the Bank"), today reported preliminary results for the fourth quarter and year ended December 31, 2010. The Company reported fourth quarter 2010 net income of $1.7 million, compared to a net loss of ($574,000) in the fourth quarter a year ago. After accrued dividends and discount accretion on preferred stock, the Company reported net income allocable to common shareholders of $1.1 million, or $0.03 per average diluted common share, for the fourth quarter of 2010. In the fourth quarter of 2009, the net loss allocable to common shareholders was ($1.2) million, or ($0.10) per average diluted common share.

For the full year ended December 31, 2010, the net loss allocable to common shareholders was ($58.3) million, or ($3.64) per average diluted common share, which included a non-cash goodwill impairment charge of $43.2 million and loan charge-offs of $13.9 million related to problem real estate loans transferred to loans held-for-sale in the second quarter of 2010. For the year ended December 31, 2009, the net loss allocable to common shareholders was ($14.4) million, or ($1.21) per average diluted common share.

"Our return to profitability for the second consecutive quarter in 2010 was driven by continued improvement in our asset quality metrics, which included a substantial reduction in nonperforming assets at year end. As a result, the need to increase the allowance for loan losses was reduced with the quarter's improved credit trends and with the relative stabilization of economic conditions," said Walter Kaczmarek, President and Chief Executive Officer. "In fact, the latest reports on the greater San Francisco Bay Area economy are showing signs of improvement with increased hiring in Silicon Valley. We are encouraged by this quarter's financial results and look forward to returning to moderate growth in our loan portfolio this year."

"Our Company's capital position remains strong with a Tier 1 risk-based capital ratio of 19.68% and a total risk-based capital ratio of 20.95%," continued Mr. Kaczmarek. "We are moving forward with a focus on growing our business and strengthening our balance sheet, while remaining diligent in reducing problem assets. We continue to focus our attention on providing superior service to our customers and communities, and creating long-term value for our shareholders."

Fourth Quarter 2010 Highlights and Significant Events (for periods ended December 31, 2010 compared to December 31, 2009, and September 30, 2010)

  • Asset quality statistics improved significantly reflecting the following metrics:
  • Nonperforming assets declined to $34.6 million, or 2.78% of total assets at December 31, 2010, from $64.6 million, or 4.74% of total assets at December 31, 2009, and from $49.7 million, or 3.73% of total assets at September 30, 2010.
     
  • Net charge-offs decreased 81% in the fourth quarter of 2010 to $1.1 million, from $5.9 million in the fourth quarter of 2009, and decreased 68% from $3.5 million in the third quarter of 2010.
     
  • The provision for loan losses in the fourth quarter of 2010 was $1.1 million, compared to $5.7 million in the fourth quarter of 2009, and $2.1 million in the third quarter of 2010. 
     
  • The allowance for loan losses at December 31, 2010 totaled $25.2 million, or 2.98% of total loans, compared to $28.8 million, or 2.69% of total loans at December 31, 2009, and $25.3 million, or 2.85% of total loans at September 30, 2010.
     
  • Classified assets decreased to $91.8 million at December 31, 2010, from $166.3 million at December 31, 2009, and from $116.5 million at September 30, 2010.
  • Capital ratios substantially exceed regulatory requirements for a well-capitalized financial institution, both at the holding company level and the bank level. The leverage ratio at the holding company was 14.14%, with a Tier 1 risk-based capital ratio of 19.68% and a total risk-based capital ratio of 20.95%. Heritage Bank of Commerce reported a leverage ratio of 12.12%, a Tier 1 risk-based capital ratio of 16.87%, and a total risk-based capital ratio of 18.13%.  The regulatory well-capitalized guidelines are a minimum of a 5% leverage ratio, a 6% Tier 1 risk-based capital ratio, and a 10% total risk-based capital ratio.
     
  • Cash, Federal funds sold, interest-bearing deposits in other financial institutions and securities available-for-sale increased 96% to $304.3 million at December 31, 2010, from $155.5 million at December 31, 2009, and decreased 11% from $342.0 million at September 30, 2010.
     
  • The loan to deposit ratio was to 85.12% at December 31, 2010, compared to 98.24% at December 31, 2009, and 83.24% at September 30, 2010.

  • The net interest margin decreased 2 basis points to 3.59% in the fourth quarter of 2010, from 3.61% in the fourth quarter of 2009, and was the same as the third quarter of 2010. The decrease in net interest margin in 2010 compared to 2009 was primarily due to the investment of proceeds from the June 2010 capital raise in short-term investments and deposits at the Federal Reserve Bank, partially offset by maturing higher-cost wholesale funding and a more cost-effective blend of core deposits.
     
  • The Company sold $18.3 million of investment securities resulting in a $464,000 gain on sale in the fourth quarter of 2010.
     

Balance Sheet Review, Capital Management and Credit Quality

Heritage Commerce Corp's total assets declined 9% to $1.25 billion at December 31, 2010, from $1.36 billion at December 31, 2009, and decreased 6% from $1.33 billion at September 30, 2010.

The investment securities portfolio totaled $232.2 million at December 31, 2010, an increase of 111% from $110.0 million a year ago, and an increase of 108% from $111.5 million from September 30, 2010. At December 31, 2010, the investment portfolio was comprised of mortgage-backed securities, all of which were issued by U. S. Government sponsored entities. During the fourth quarter of 2010, the Company acquired $154.8 million of mortgage-backed securities yielding approximately 2.93% with an average duration of 4.47 years. During the fourth quarter of 2010, the Company sold approximately $18.3 million of investment securities and recognized a gain on sale of approximately $464,000.

During the fourth quarter of 2010, the $4.8 million of problem real estate loans held-for-sale outstanding at September 30, 2010 were reduced to $2.3 million at December 31, 2010. The reduction was due to a loan that was repaid through the sale of the underlying collateral by the borrower and a loan that was foreclosed and transferred to other real estate owned ("OREO").

Loans, excluding loans held-for-sale, decreased 21% to $846.0 million at December 31, 2010, from $1.07 billion at December 31, 2009, and decreased 5% from $886.6 million at September 30, 2010. The total loan portfolio remains well diversified with commercial and industrial loans accounting for 45% of the portfolio at December 31, 2010. Commercial real estate loans accounted for 40% of the total loan portfolio at December 31, 2010, of which 58% were owner-occupied by businesses. Land and construction loans continued to decrease, accounting for 7% of the portfolio at December 31, 2010, compared to 17% and 10% of the total loan portfolio at December 31, 2009 and September 30, 2010, respectively. Consumer and home equity loans accounted for the remaining 8% of total loans at December 31, 2010. Although loans were down $40.6 million in the fourth quarter of 2010 compared to the third quarter of 2010, commercial and industrial loans increased $7.5 million; real estate land and construction loans decreased $29.4 million; and real estate mortgage loans decreased $16.1 million. The loan portfolio yielded 5.25% in the fourth quarter of 2010, compared to 5.06% in the same period in 2009, and 5.10% for the third quarter of 2010.

Including $2.0 million in loans held-for-sale, nonperforming assets decreased to $34.6 million, or 2.78% of total assets at December 31, 2010, compared to $64.6 million, or 4.74% of total assets at December 31, 2009, when there were no nonperforming loans held-for-sale. At September 30, 2010, including $4.6 million in loans held-for-sale, nonperforming assets totaled $49.7 million or 3.73% of total assets. Excluding loans held-for-sale, nonperforming assets were $32.6 million, or 2.62% of total assets at December 31, 2010, compared to $64.6 million, or 4.74% of total assets at December 31, 2009, and $45.1 million, or 3.39% of total assets at September 30, 2010. At December 31, 2010, 29% of the nonperforming assets were land and construction loans; 26% commercial and industrial loans; 19% commercial real estate loans; 12% SBA loans; 7% restructured and loans over 90 days past due and still accruing; 3% consumer and home equity loans; and 4% OREO. Total OREO was $1.3 million at December 31, 2010, compared to $2.2 million a year ago, and $657,000 at September 30, 2010. Classified assets decreased to $91.8 million at December 31, 2010, from $166.3 million at December 31, 2009, and from $116.5 million at September 30, 2010.

The allowance for loan losses at December 31, 2010 was $25.2 million, or 2.98% of total loans, representing 75.60% of nonperforming loans and 80.49% of nonperforming loans excluding nonaccrual loans in loans held-for-sale. The allowance for loan losses for December 31, 2009 was $28.8 million, or 2.69% of total loans and 46.12% of nonperforming loans. There were no nonaccrual loans in loans held-for-sale at December 31, 2009. The allowance for loan losses at September 30, 2010 was $25.3 million, or 2.85% of total loans, representing 51.62% of nonperforming loans and 56.90% of nonperforming loans excluding nonaccrual loans in loans held-for-sale. During the fourth quarter of 2010, gross charge-offs were $2.1 million and recoveries were $938,000, of which $852,000 related to one loan.

Deposits totaled $993.9 million at December 31, 2010, compared to $1.09 billion at December 31, 2009, and $1.07 billion at September 30, 2010. Demand deposits increased $26.5 million to $434.2 million at December 31, 2010, compared to $407.7 million at December 31, 2009, and increased $7.8 million compared to $426.4 million at September 30, 2010. At December 31, 2010, brokered deposits were $98.5 million, compared to $178.0 million at December 31, 2009, and $132.4 million at September 30, 2010. Total deposits, excluding brokered deposits, were $895.5 million at December 31, 2010, compared to $911.3 million at December 31, 2009 and $932.7 million at September 30, 2010. Total deposits decreased $71.2 million from September 30, 2010 to December 31, 2010, primarily due to a reduction of brokered deposits ($34.0 million of brokered deposits matured in the fourth quarter of 2010) and a $21.8 million exchange account that was closed.

Tangible equity was $179.1 million at December 31, 2010, compared to $125.5 million a year ago, and $181.9 million at September 30, 2010. The increase in tangible equity in 2010 compared to 2009 was due to the $75 million private placement in the second quarter of 2010. Tangible book value per common share was $4.61 at December 31, 2010, compared to $7.38 a year ago, and $4.72 at September 30, 2010. The Company's accumulated other comprehensive loss increased to $4.6 million at December 31, 2010 from $1.3 million at September 30, 2010. The components of other comprehensive loss at December 31, 2010 include the following: an unrealized loss on available-for-sale securities of ($1.7) million, an unrealized loss on split dollar insurance contracts of ($2.1) million, an unrealized loss on the supplemental executive retirement plan of ($2.0) million and an unrealized gain on interest-only strip from SBA loans of $1.2 million.

In the third quarter of 2010, the Company's shareholders approved the issuance of common stock upon the conversion of the Series B Preferred Stock and the Series C Preferred Stock.  The holders of the Series B Preferred Stock and Series C Preferred Stock were entitled to receive cumulative dividends at a per annum rate of 20%, unless shareholder approval was obtained before December 21, 2010. As a result of the shareholder approval, dividends and discount accretion on preferred stock decreased to $193,000 for the third quarter of 2010, compared to $1.0 million in the second quarter of 2010, due to $411,000 of accrued dividends on the Series B Preferred Stock and Series C Preferred Stock in the second quarter of 2010 that did not have to be paid and therefore was reflected as an adjustment in the third quarter of 2010. Dividends and discount accretion on the Series A Preferred Stock issued to the U.S. Treasury under the Capital Purchase Program totaled $606,000 for the fourth quarter of 2010, compared to $600,000 for the fourth quarter of 2009, and $604,000 for the third quarter of 2010. 

After receiving shareholder approval in September 2010, the outstanding Series B preferred stock automatically converted into approximately 14.4 million shares of the Company's common stock. The Series C Preferred stock remains outstanding until converted to common stock upon the transfer of the Series C Preferred Stock in accordance with its terms.

In the per common share data attached, the Company details the tangible book value per share, assuming the Company's outstanding Series C Preferred Stock issued in June 30, 2010 was converted into common stock. There are 21,004 shares of Series C Preferred Stock outstanding at December 31, 2010 and the Series C Preferred Stock is convertible into an aggregate 5,601,000 shares of common stock at a conversion price of $3.75, upon a transfer of the Series C Preferred Stock in a widely dispersed offering.

Operating Results

Net interest income decreased to $10.9 million in the fourth quarter of 2010, from $11.5 million for the fourth quarter of 2009, but increased from $10.8 million in the third quarter of 2010. Net interest income was adversely impacted by a decrease in loan balances. Net interest income for the year ended December 31, 2010 was $44.6 million, compared to $46.0 million a year ago. The net interest margin was 3.59% for the fourth quarter of 2010, compared to 3.61% for the fourth quarter a year ago, and 3.59% for the third quarter of 2010. The net interest margin for the year ended December 31, 2010 was 3.69%, compared to 3.53% for the year ended December 31, 2009.   

The provision for loan losses was $1.1 million for the fourth quarter of 2010, compared to $5.7 million for the fourth quarter of 2009, and $2.1 million for the third quarter of 2010. The decrease in provision for loan losses in fourth quarter of 2010 compared to the fourth quarter of 2009 and third quarter of 2010 reflects a lower volume of classified assets and nonperforming loans and a decrease in loan charge-offs.

Noninterest income was $2.4 million for the fourth quarter of 2010, compared to $2.5 million in the fourth quarter of 2009, and $2.7 million for the prior quarter. Noninterest income for the year ended December 31, 2010 was $8.7 million, compared to $8.0 million a year ago. The increase in noninterest income in 2010 compared to 2009 was primarily due to $2.0 million in gains on the sale of securities in 2010, partially offset by an $887,000 loss on the sale of problem loans.

Noninterest expense was $10.1 million for the fourth quarter of 2010, compared to $10.6 million in the fourth quarter of 2009 and $11.2 million in the third quarter of 2010. The decrease in noninterest expense in the fourth quarter of 2010 compared to the third quarter of 2010 was due to a decrease in salaries and employee benefits expense and no writedown of loans held-for-sale in the fourth quarter of 2010. The decrease in salaries and employee benefits expense was due to a reduction of stock option expense, as stock options forfeited exceeded the initial forfeiture rate utilized, offset by a severance accrual related to a reduction in workforce during the fourth quarter of 2010. Noninterest expense increased to $88.1 million in 2010, compared to $44.8 million a year ago, primarily due to the $43.2 million impairment of goodwill in the second quarter of 2010. Noninterest expense, excluding the $43.2 million impairment of goodwill, was $44.9 million for the year ended December 31, 2010.

Income tax expense for the quarter ended December 31, 2010 was $506,000, as compared to a ($1.7) million tax benefit in the fourth quarter a year ago, and a tax benefit of ($398,000) in the third quarter of 2010. The income tax benefit for the year ended December 31, 2010 was ($5.8) million, as compared to a tax benefit of ($12.7) million a year ago. The negative effective income tax rates are due to the loss before income taxes. The difference in the effective tax rate compared to the combined Federal and state statutory tax rate of 42% is primarily the result of the Company's investment in life insurance policies whose earnings are not subject to taxes, and tax credits related to investments in low income housing limited partnerships. 

The efficiency ratio was 75.65% for the fourth quarter of 2010, compared to 75.77% in the fourth quarter of 2009 and 82.96% in the third quarter of 2010. The efficiency ratio, excluding the $43.2 million impairment of goodwill in 2010 increased to 84.31% from 82.90% a year ago. The efficiency ratio increased in 2010 primarily due to a decrease in net interest income and an increase in noninterest expense, primarily an increase in FDIC insurance premiums and professional fees, which was partially offset by the $2.0 million gain on sale of securities.

Series A Preferred Stock Dividends

The Company's next scheduled dividend payment on its outstanding Series A Preferred Stock issued to the U.S. Treasury is due February 14, 2011. If the Company exercises its right not to make the dividend payment it will be the sixth consecutive dividend payment suspended. Under the terms of the Series A Preferred Stock, if the Company fails to pay dividends on the Series A Preferred Stock for a total of six quarters, whether or not consecutive, the U.S. Treasury has the right to elect two members of the Company's Board of Directors. These directors would serve on the Company's Board of Directors until such time as the Company has paid in full all dividends not previously paid. Although the U.S. Treasury has not indicated if or when it may exercise its right to have two members appointed to the Board of Directors, effective during the first quarter of 2011, the Company has permitted the U.S. Treasury to allow an observer employed by the U. S. Treasury to attend meetings of the Company's Board of Directors.
