SAN JOSE, Calif., April 28, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Heritage Commerce Corp (Nasdaq:HTBK), the holding company ("the Company") for Heritage Bank of Commerce ("the Bank"), today reported net income of $1.6 million on an unaudited basis for the first quarter ended March 31, 2011, compared to a net loss of ($4.1) million in the first quarter a year ago. After accrued dividends and discount accretion on preferred stock, the Company reported net income allocable to common shareholders of $985,000 or $0.03 per average diluted common share, for the first quarter of 2011. In the first quarter of 2010, the net loss allocable to common shareholders was ($4.7) million, or ($0.40) per average diluted common share.

"This quarter's results marks our third consecutive quarter of profitability, reflecting our substantial improvement in asset quality," said Walter Kaczmarek, President and Chief Executive Officer. "We have made significant strides in our credit quality metrics with nonperforming assets decreasing 60% from a year ago and 21% from the preceding quarter. Classified assets have also declined significantly from a year ago, with such assets down 52% from the first quarter a year ago and down 11% from December 31, 2010. We will remain diligent and focused on credit quality."

"With improving profitability, significant levels of capital, strong liquidity, and an improving economy, we have begun to focus on growing our franchise again, particularly commercial and industrial lending," said Mr. Kaczmarek. "As a result, we have started an asset based lending group and we are looking to add SBA sales officers in our geographic market."

"Additionally, our net interest margin improved year-over-year and expanded by 36 basis points from the preceding quarter to 3.95%. This was a key contributor to our profitability. The expansion of the net interest margin was primarily a result of a shift from our excess funds at the Federal Reserve Bank to our securities portfolio, a reduction in nonaccrual loans and further reduction of deposit costs," Mr. Kaczmarek continued.

Balance Sheet Review, Capital Management and Credit Quality

Heritage Commerce Corp's total assets decreased 6% to $1.26 billion at March 31, 2011, from $1.34 billion a year ago, and remained relatively flat compared to $1.25 billion for December 31, 2010.

The investment securities portfolio totaled $250.1 million at March 31, 2011, an increase of 79% from $139.4 million at March 31, 2010, and an increase of 8% from $232.2 million from December 31, 2010. At March 31, 2011, the investment portfolio was comprised of agency mortgage-backed securities, all of which were issued by U. S. Government sponsored entities. During the first quarter of 2011, the Company acquired $26.6 million of agency mortgage-backed securities yielding approximately 3.07% with an average duration of approximately 3.72 years.

The total loan portfolio remains well-diversified with commercial and industrial loans accounting for 46% of the portfolio at March 31, 2011. Commercial and residential real estate loans accounted for 40% of the total loan portfolio, of which 53% were owner-occupied by businesses. Land and construction loans continued to decrease, accounting for 6% of the portfolio, compared to 15% at March 31, 2010 and 7% of the total loan portfolio at December 31, 2010. Consumer and home equity loans accounted for the remaining 8% of total loans at March 31, 2011. The yield on the loan portfolio was 5.28% in the first quarter of 2011, compared to 5.02% in the same period in 2010, and 5.25% for the fourth quarter of 2010. Loans, excluding loans held-for-sale, decreased 20% to $803.4 million at March 31, 2011, from $1.01 billion a year ago, and decreased 5% from $846.0 million at December 31, 2010. "The decline in total loans is primarily the result of continued payoff of real estate loans," said Mr. Kaczmarek. "And, although we were disappointed in the general lower demand for loans during the first quarter of 2011, going forward we are cautiously optimistic that loan demand will improve."

Including $2.0 million in loans held-for-sale, nonperforming assets declined by $41.6 million year-over-year to $27.5 million, or 2.19% of total assets at March 31, 2011, from $69.0 million, or 5.17% of total assets at March 31, 2010. At December 31, 2010, including $2.0 million in loans held-for-sale, nonperforming assets totaled $34.6 million or 2.78% of total assets. Excluding loans held-for-sale, nonperforming assets were $25.5 million, or 2.03% of total assets at March 31, 2011, compared to $69.0 million, or 5.17% of total assets at March 31, 2010, and $32.6 million, or 2.62% of total assets at December 31, 2010. At March 31, 2011, 30% of the nonperforming assets were land and construction loans; 23% SBA loans; 21% commercial and industrial loans; 14% commercial real estate loans; 6% restructured and loans over 90 days past due and still accruing; 3% consumer and home equity loans; and 3% other real estate owned ("OREO"). At March 31, 2011, the $27.5 million of nonperforming assets included $1.2 million of loan outstandings guaranteed by the SBA and $1.4 million of restructured loans still accruing interest income.

Total OREO was $918,000 at March 31, 2011, compared to $1.8 million at March 31, 2010, and $1.3 million at December 31, 2010. Classified assets decreased to $81.4 million at March 31, 2011, from $171.2 million at March 31, 2010, and from $91.8 million at December 31, 2010.

The allowance for loan losses at March 31, 2011 was $24.0 million, or 2.99% of total loans, representing 90.41% of nonperforming loans. The allowance for loan losses at March 31, 2010 was $26.5 million, or 2.64% of total loans, representing 39.47% of nonperforming loans. 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. Net charge-offs in the first quarter of 2011 totaled $2.0 million, or 0.96% of average loans on an annualized basis, decreasing from $7.3 million, or 2.83% of average loans on an annualized basis, during the first quarter of 2010, and increasing from $1.1 million, or 0.52% of average loans on an annualized basis, during the fourth quarter of 2010.   

Total deposits were $1.00 billion at March 31, 2011, compared to $1.08 billion at March 31, 2010, and $993.9 million at December 31, 2010. Demand deposits increased $49.0 million to $461.0 million at March 31, 2011, compared to $412.0 million a year ago, and increased $26.8 million compared to $434.2 million at December 31, 2010. At March 31, 2011, brokered deposits declined 44% to $97.8 million, from $174.5 million at March 31, 2010, and declined 1% from $98.5 million at December 31, 2010. Total deposits, excluding brokered deposits, were $905.5 million at March 31, 2011, compared to $907.2 million at March 31, 2010 and $895.5 million at December 31, 2010. The total cost of deposits decreased 37 basis points to 0.52% during the first quarter of 2011 from 0.89% during the first quarter of 2010, and decreased 10 basis points from 0.62% during the fourth quarter of 2010, primarily as a result of maturing higher-cost wholesale funding and higher noninterest-bearing demand deposit balances. "While total deposits increased slightly quarter-over-quarter, noninterest-bearing demand deposits grew 16% quarter-over-quarter and accounts for 32% of all deposits," said Mr. Kaczmarek. 

Tangible equity was $180.3 million at March 31, 2011, compared to $121.5 million at March 31, 2010, and $179.1 million at December 31, 2010. The increase in tangible equity over the past 12-months was due to the $75 million private placement in the second quarter of 2010. Tangible book value per common share was $4.65 at March 31, 2011, compared to $7.03 a year ago, and $4.61 at December 31, 2010. The Company's accumulated other comprehensive loss was $4.8 million at March 31, 2011, compared to $2.4 million a year ago, and $4.6 million at December 31, 2010. The components of other comprehensive loss at March 31, 2011 include the following: an unrealized loss on available-for-sale securities of ($1.9) 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 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 2010 was converted into common stock. There are 21,004 shares of Series C Preferred Stock outstanding at March 31, 2011 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

For the first quarter of 2011, revenues (net interest income plus noninterest income) remained flat from the first quarter a year ago at $13.1 million, and declined 2% compared to the preceding quarter at $13.4 million. Net interest income, before the provision for loan losses, decreased to $11.2 million in the first quarter of 2011, from $11.4 million in the first quarter a year ago, but increased from $10.9 million in the fourth quarter of 2010. Net interest income was adversely impacted by a decrease in loan balances, partially offset by an increase in investment securities.

The net interest margin was 3.95%, compared to 3.82% for the first quarter a year ago, and 3.59% for the fourth quarter of 2010. The increase in the net interest margin was primarily attributed to a shift from our excess funds at the Federal Reserve Bank to our securities portfolio, along with a lower level of nonaccrual loans and a lower cost of deposits as a result of higher noninterest-bearing demand deposit balances. 

The Company recorded a $770,000 provision for loan losses in the first quarter of 2011, compared to $5.1 million in the first quarter a year ago, and $1.1 million in the fourth quarter of 2010. The decrease in provision for loan losses in the first quarter of 2011 compared to the first quarter of 2010 reflects a lower volume of classified assets and nonperforming loans, a decrease in loan charge-offs, and contraction of the loan portfolio during the first quarter of 2011.

Noninterest income was $1.9 million for the first quarter of 2011, compared to $1.7 million in the first quarter a year ago, and $2.4 million for the fourth quarter of 2010. The increase in noninterest income in the first quarter of 2011, compared to the first quarter of 2010 was primarily due to $379,000 in gains on the sale of SBA loans in the first quarter of 2011, compared to $114,000 in gains on the sale of SBA loans during the first quarter of 2010. The decrease in noninterest income in the first quarter of 2011, compared to the fourth quarter of 2010 was primarily due to a reduction of $464,000 in gains on the sale of securities from the fourth quarter of 2010.

Noninterest expense in the first quarter of 2011 declined 14% year-over-year to $10.4 million, compared to $12.2 million in the first quarter of 2010, and increased 3% from $10.1 million in the fourth quarter of 2010. The decrease in noninterest expense from the first quarter of 2010 was due to a decline in salaries and employee benefits expense, FDIC insurance premiums, professional fees related to problem loans and expenses related to OREO properties. The increase in noninterest expense from the fourth quarter of 2010 was a result of higher salaries and employee benefits expense, which is consistent with the Company's cyclical salary and employee benefits expense in prior years.

Income tax expense for the quarter ended March 31, 2011 was $331,000, compared to a tax benefit of $120,000 in the first quarter of 2010, and a tax expense of $506,000 in the fourth quarter of 2010. The effective tax rate was 17% for the first quarter of 2011, compared to -3% for the first quarter of 2010, and 23% for the fourth quarter of 2010. 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 improved to 79.55% for the first quarter of 2011, compared to 93.45% for the first quarter of 2010, primarily due to a decrease in noninterest expense as management continues to focus on controlling expenses and an increase in gains on the sale of SBA loans. The increase in the efficiency ratio in the first quarter of 2011 of 79.55%, compared to 75.65% in the fourth quarter of 2010 was primarily due to the higher revenues in the fourth quarter of 2010 and higher salaries and employee benefits expense in the first quarter of 2011.
