Horizon Bancorp, Inc. Releases 2nd Quarter 2021 Financial Highlights, Including Net Earnings of $1,383,000 or $0.33 Per Share, Net Loan Growth (Excluding PPP) of $16,652,000, and Improving Asset Quality Metrics

·8 min read

LAKE HAVASU CITY, Ariz., July 23, 2021--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Horizon Bancorp, Inc. (OTC Pink: HRRB), the holding company for Horizon Community Bank, announced net income for the quarter ended June 30, 2021 of $1,383,000 or $0.33 per share, up 3.21% over first quarter 2021 earnings, and 50.82% over earnings for the quarter ended June 30, 2020. Earnings are influenced by the bank’s participation in the PPP program and the robust allowance for loan and lease loss has not required any significant additional loan loss provision. Earnings were also influenced by a further reduction in cost of funds, net commercial loan growth, and the performance of the government guaranteed loan division.

June 30, 2021 highlights include:

  • Second quarter 2021 net earnings improvement of 50.82% over same quarter last year

  • Book value per share of $8.61, a 6.82% increase over prior quarter and 12.84% over prior year

  • Conventional loan growth (excluding PPP) of $16,652,000 for the quarter

  • Average quarterly cost of funds reduced to 0.19%

  • Non-interest demand deposit representing nearly 40% of total deposits

Ralph Tapscott, President and CEO, stated, "Overall we are very pleased with the quarterly performance. Our primary focus has been on commercial loan production, further reducing the bank’s cost of funds, and enhancing non-interest income. For the first time in most of our careers we were attempting to limit deposits. This is caused by the need to effectively deploy the funds and simultaneously manage our capital position. We have also repaid all but $2 million in Federal Home Loan Bank advances. The economy seems reasonably sound, other than a general shortage of workers in many industry sectors. The resulting asset quality metrics are encouraging. We are vigilant in our continual assessment of economic conditions, the condition and performance of our portfolios, and lingering health concerns with staff and clients."

The bank utilizes peer group metrics from the Uniform Bank Performance Report ("UBPR") to measure progress in a number of key areas. Strategic initiatives are in place to enhance rankings in return on average assets, loan yield, cost of funds, past due loan percentages, non-accrual loans, efficiency ratio, and assets per employee. Peer data is not yet available for June 30, 2021, but first quarter results were favorable or moving in a favorable direction relative to all these metrics.

The Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) officially ended on June 30, 2021. The bank’s production in rounds 1.a. and 1.b. of 2020 was 695 loans for $68 million. The 2021 round 2 production resulted in an additional 252 loans for $24.8 million. Thus far, PPP forgiveness has been granted on 88% of round 1.a. and 1.b. borrowers. "Most bank portfolios are experiencing PPP loan forgiveness at the same time we attempt to ramp up business commercial lending. Total loans are up $5,558,000 for second quarter 2021, and $16,652,000 was net non-PPP production, with the remainder being nominal PPP fundings and aggressive PPP forgiveness. What is truly encouraging is the monthly increase in net production, coupled with a current loan pipeline of $74,000,000," stated Tapscott.

Credit quality metrics are shown in the following table and reflect improvements quarter over quarter and year over year in nonaccrual loans and nonperforming assets. The bank maintains an ample allowance for loan and lease loss at 1.48% of total outstanding loans, and this is inclusive of PPP.
