East West Bancorp, Inc. (“East West” or the “Company”) (Nasdaq: EWBC), parent company of East West Bank, today reported its financial results for the second quarter of 2021. Net income for the second quarter of 2021 was $224.7 million, or $1.57 per diluted share. Second quarter 2021 return on average assets was 1.56% and return on average equity was 16.6%.

“East West had a very strong quarter of robust growth, expanding profitability and improving asset quality,” stated Dominic Ng, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of East West. “As of June 30, 2021, our total loans reached a record $40.1 billion and our total deposits reached a record $52.6 billion.”

“Excluding the impact of the Paycheck Protection Program, loans grew by 12% annualized in the second quarter, with solid growth across our residential mortgage, commercial, and commercial real estate loan portfolios. Total deposits grew by 25% annualized, and noninterest-bearing demand deposits reached 41% of total deposits as of June 30, 2021. Our diversified growth reflects the strength of our business model, our commercial and consumer customer mix, and our geographic footprint in dynamic metropolitan areas of the United States.”

“Quarter-over-quarter, our revenue grew by 17% annualized and operating expenses decreased, driving adjusted pre-tax, pre-provision income growth of 33% annualized and expanding profitability,” continued Ng. “Our solid financial performance for the second quarter resulted in adjusted pre-tax, pre-provision profitability1 of 2.0% and a return on average tangible equity2 of 18.3%.”

“Asset quality continues to be healthy. Criticized loans fell by 15% quarter-over-quarter; net charge-offs were 0.13% of average loans, annualized, and the nonperforming assets ratio declined by seven basis points to 0.38% of total assets. Accordingly, we recorded a negative $15.0 million provision for credit losses in the second quarter.”

“We are pleased with our results this quarter and are positive about our outlook for the rest of the year,” concluded Ng. “The hard work and outstanding execution by all our associates builds a strong foundation for East West’s continued growth and success in the years to come. We are well poised to help our communities and customers thrive as the economy expands.”

BALANCE SHEET

  • Record Assets – Total assets reached $59.9 billion as of June 30, 2021, up by $3.0 billion, or 21% annualized, from $56.9 billion as of March 31, 2021. Second quarter 2021 average interest-earning assets of $54.9 billion grew by $2.0 billion, or 16% linked quarter annualized. The growth in average interest-earning assets consisted of a $1.5 billion increase in average available-for-sale (“AFS”) debt securities, an $893.0 million increase in average loans, and a $667.7 million increase in average assets purchased under resale agreements (“resale agreements”), partially offset by a $1.0 billion decrease in average interest-bearing cash and deposits with banks. The increase in average AFS debt securities and resale agreements largely reflected activity during the first quarter of 2021; on an end-of-period basis, AFS debt securities increased by $610.2 million and resale agreements increased by $139.1 million between June 30, 2021, and March 31, 2021.
  • Record Loans – Total loans reached $40.1 billion as of June 30, 2021, up by $484.6 million, or 5% annualized, from $39.6 billion as of March 31, 2021. Excluding Paycheck Protection Program (“PPP”) loans of $1.4 billion as of June 30, 2021, total loans grew by $1.1 billion, or 12% linked quarter annualized. During the second quarter of 2021, $695.5 million of PPP loans outstanding were forgiven by the Small Business Administration. The Company funded 5,523 new PPP loans totaling $896.5 million in the first half of 2021. Second quarter 2021 average loans of $39.6 billion grew by $893.0 million, or 9% linked quarter annualized. Excluding PPP loans, average loans grew by $953.6 million, or 10% annualized, from the first quarter of 2021. The strong loan growth during the quarter was broad-based, with the strongest growth from average residential mortgage loans, which increased by 19% linked quarter annualized. Average total CRE loans grew by 8% linked quarter annualized, and average C&I loans, excluding PPP, grew by 6% linked quarter annualized.
  • Record Deposits – Total deposits reached $52.6 billion as of June 30, 2021, up by $3.0 billion, or 25% annualized, from $49.5 billion as of March 31, 2021. Noninterest-bearing demand deposits reached a record $21.8 billion as of June 30, 2021, up by $2.9 billion, or 61% annualized, from $18.9 billion as of March 31, 2021. Noninterest-bearing demand deposits made up 41% of total deposits as of June 30, 2021, up from 38% as of March 31, 2021, or 34% as of June 30, 2020. Second quarter 2021 average deposits of $50.2 billion grew by $2.3 billion, or 20% linked quarter annualized. Growth in the second quarter was led by noninterest-bearing demand deposits, which increased by 36% linked quarter annualized. Time deposits decreased quarter-over-quarter, reflecting run-off of higher rate certificates of deposit.
  • Capital Levels – Capital levels for East West are strong. As of June 30, 2021, stockholders’ equity was $5.5 billion, or $39.10 per common share, and tangible equity3 per common share was $35.75.

OPERATING RESULTS

Second Quarter Earnings – Second quarter 2021 net income was $224.7 million, or $1.57 per diluted share, an increase of 10% from $205.0 million, or $1.44 per diluted share, for the first quarter of 2021.

Second Quarter 2021 Compared to First Quarter 2021

Net Interest Income and Net Interest Margin

Net interest income (“NII”) totaled $376.5 million, an increase of 26% annualized from $353.7 million. Net interest margin (“NIM”) of 2.75% increased by four basis points from 2.71%.

  • Excluding the impact of PPP loans, adjusted NII4 totaled $361.1 million, an increase of 27% annualized from $338.7 million. Adjusted NIM4 of 2.73% expanded by three basis points from 2.70%. PPP loans contributed $15.4 million to NII in the second quarter, compared with $15.0 million in the first quarter.
  • NII growth reflected higher interest income, due to average loan, AFS debt securities and resale agreement volume growth, and decreased interest expense, due to a lower cost of deposits, a reduction of time deposit balances and pay off of FHLB advances. During the second quarter, $400.0 million of FHLB advances with an average rate of 2.25% matured.
  • The yield on average earning assets of 2.92% was relatively stable quarter-over-quarter, contracting by one basis point from 2.93%. The average loan yield of 3.57% was likewise relatively stable, contracting by one basis point from 3.58%. Quarter-over-quarter, yields on AFS debt securities and resale agreements were lower, but the overall mix of earning assets was higher yielding due to a reduction of average interest-bearing cash and deposits with banks.
  • The average cost of deposits of 0.14% decreased by four basis points from 0.18%. The average cost of interest-bearing deposits of 0.24% decreased by six basis points from 0.30%. The decrease in the cost of deposits primarily reflects continued downward repricing of time deposits to market rates, and a reduction in rates paid on money market accounts.

Noninterest Income

Noninterest income totaled $68.4 million in the second quarter, down from $72.9 million in the first quarter. Quarter-over-quarter growth in foreign exchange income, lending fees, deposit account fees, and wealth management fees drove a 15% increase in customer-driven fee income. However, the growth in customer-driven fee income was offset by an unfavorable change in the credit valuation adjustment of interest rate contracts and other derivatives.

  • Included in interest rate contracts and other derivative income are fair value changes primarily due to the quarter-over-quarter change in the credit valuation adjustment. These fair value changes amounted to a $5.4 million loss in the second quarter, reflecting a quarter-over-quarter decline in long-term benchmark interest rates. In the first quarter, the comparable amount was a $14.1 million gain, reflecting an increase in long-term benchmark interest rates during the period.
  • Other investment income totaled $7.6 million in the second quarter, up from $0.9 million in the first quarter, reflecting increased valuations of Community Reinvestment Act-related investments.

Noninterest Expense

Noninterest expense totaled $189.5 million. Second quarter noninterest expense consisted of $161.5 million of adjusted noninterest expense5, $27.3 million in amortization of tax credit and other investments, and $0.7 million in amortization of core deposit intangibles.

  • Adjusted noninterest expense of $161.5 million decreased by 2% from $165.0 million in the first quarter. Compensation and employee benefits expense decreased from a seasonally higher first quarter.
  • Amortization of tax credit and other investments totaled $27.3 million, an increase from $25.4 million in the first quarter. Second quarter amortization of tax credit and other investments included $0.9 million of recoveries related to DC Solar tax credit investments. These recoveries amounted to $0.6 million after tax.
  • The adjusted efficiency ratio5 was 36.3% in the second quarter, an improvement from 38.7% in the first quarter.

TAX RELATED ITEMS

Second quarter 2021 income tax expense was $45.6 million and the effective tax rate was 17%. Year-to-date for the first six months of 2021, the effective tax rate was 15%. For the full year, the Company expects the effective tax rate to be approximately 15%.

ASSET QUALITY

  • Quarter-over-quarter, criticized loans fell by $184.9 million, or 15%, with decreases of 23% in special mention and 9% in classified loans. The allowance for loan losses (“ALLL”) totaled $585.7 million, or 1.46% of loans held-for-investment (“HFI”), as of June 30, 2021, compared with $607.5 million, or 1.53% of loans HFI, as of March 31, 2021.
  • Quarter-over-quarter, the ALLL decreased by $21.8 million, and the ALLL coverage ratio of loans HFI decreased by seven basis points. The change in the ALLL reflects an improved macroeconomic forecast, improved loan risk ratings, and lower expected losses over the expected life of the loans.
  • As a result of the improvements noted above, during the second quarter of 2021, the Company recorded a negative $15.0 million provision for credit losses.
  • Second quarter 2021 net charge-offs were $13.3 million, or annualized 0.13% of average loans HFI, down by $131 thousand, or one basis point, from $13.4 million, or annualized 0.14% of average loans HFI, for the first quarter of 2021.
  • As of June 30, 2021, criticized loans totaled $1,032.0 million, or 2.58% of loans HFI, an improvement of 49 basis points from $1,216.9 million, or 3.07% of loans HFI, as of March 31, 2021. Special mention loans decreased by 23% to $386.8 million as of June 30, 2021, down from $504.2 million as of March 31, 2021. Classified loans decreased by 9% to $645.2 million as of June 30, 2021, down from $712.7 million as of March 31, 2021.
  • Nonperforming assets were $225.7 million, or 0.38% of total assets, as of June 30, 2021, compared with $258.1 million, or 0.45% of total assets, as of March 31, 2021.

(a)

The Company has elected to use the 2020 CECL transition provision in the calculation of its June 30, 2021, March 31, 2020, and June 30, 2020 regulatory capital ratios. The Company’s June 30, 2021 regulatory capital ratios and RWA are preliminary.

(b)

An additional 2.5% capital conservation buffer above the minimum capital ratios are required in order to avoid limitations on distributions, including dividend payments and certain discretionary bonus payments to executive officers.

(c)

Under regulatory guidelines, on-balance sheet assets and credit equivalent amounts of derivatives and off-balance sheet items are assigned to one of several broad risk categories based on the nature of the obligor, or, if relevant, the guarantor or the nature of any collateral. The aggregate dollar value in each risk category is then multiplied by the risk weight associated with that category. The resulting weighted values from each of the risk categories are aggregated for determining total RWA.

East West’s Board of Directors has declared third quarter 2021 dividends for the Company’s common stock. The common stock cash dividend of $0.33 per share is payable on August 16, 2021, to stockholders of record on August 2, 2021.

Table 12

Adjusted efficiency ratio represents adjusted noninterest expense divided by revenue. Adjusted pre-tax, pre-provision profitability ratio represents revenue less adjusted noninterest expense, divided by average total assets. Adjusted noninterest expense excludes the amortization of tax credit and other investments, the amortization of core deposit intangibles and the extinguishment cost on repurchase agreement. Management believes that the measures and ratios presented below provide clarity to financial statement users regarding the ongoing performance of the Company and allow comparability to prior periods.

GAAP TO NON-GAAP RECONCILIATION

($ in thousands)

(unaudited)

Table 14

In April 2020, the Company started accepting applications under the PPP administered by the Small Business Administration (“SBA”) under the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act and began to originate loans to qualified small businesses. In January 2021, the Company began processing applications under the second round of the SBA’s PPP in response to the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2021 signed by the President on December 27, 2020. The PPP ended on May 31, 2021.

 

These loans are included in the Company’s C&I portfolio, have an interest rate of one percent and are 100% guaranteed by the SBA. Loan processing fees paid to the Company from the SBA are accounted for as loan origination fees, where net deferred fees are recognized on a straight line basis over the estimated life of the loan as a yield adjustment on the loans. If a loan is paid off or forgiven by the SBA prior to its projected estimated life, the remaining unamortized deferred fees will be recognized as interest income in that period. The Company drew down $1.44 billion from the PPPLF during the second quarter of 2020. The remaining balance of $1.43 billion as of September 2020 was repaid in full during the fourth quarter of 2020.

 

Adjusted loan yield and adjusted net interest margin for the three months ended June 30, 2021, March 31, 2021 and June 30, 2020, and six months ended June 30, 2021 and 2020 exclude the impact of PPP loans. Net interest margin for the three and six months ended June 30, 2020 has also been adjusted for advances from the PPPLF. Management believes that presenting the adjusted average loan yield and adjusted net interest margin provide comparability to prior periods and these non-GAAP financial measures provide supplemental information regarding the Company’s performance.
