BankUnited, Inc. Reports Third Quarter 2011
Results, Strong Loan Growth

MIAMI LAKES, Fla., Oct 27, 2011 (BUSINESS WIRE) --

BankUnited, Inc. (or the "Company") (NYSE: BKU) today announced financial results for the third quarter of 2011.

For the quarter ended September 30, 2011, the Company reported net income of $45.6 million or $0.45 per share. For the nine months ended September 30, 2011, after deducting a previously disclosed one-time charge of $110.4 million recorded in conjunction with the Company's initial public offering (IPO) in the first quarter of 2011, the Company reported net income of $21.9 million, or $0.20 per share, diluted. The $110.4 million charge, which is not deductible for tax purposes, reduced net income by $110.4 million, or $1.16 per share.

For the quarter ended September 30, 2010, net income was $45.0 million, or $0.48 per share. For the nine months ended September 30, 2010, net income was $156.9 million, or $1.69 per share.

All earnings per share amounts reflect the 10-for-1 split of the Company's outstanding common shares effective January 10, 2011.

John Kanas, Chairman, President, and Chief Executive Officer, said "The experienced lending teams we have hired over the last 18 months are gaining traction, and we expect continued growth in the fourth quarter and into 2012. A strategically important regional bank is emerging as evidenced by our impressive organic growth."

Financial Highlights

  • Loans originated or purchased by the Company since May 21, 2009, or "new loans", grew by $378.1 million during the third quarter. For the nine months ended September 30, 2011, new loans increased by $738.6 million to $1.3 billion, an annualized growth rate of 180%. For both the third quarter and year to date 2011, new loan growth has outpaced the resolution of covered loans.
  • In the third quarter, core deposits, which the Company defines as total deposits less certificates of deposit, grew $169.8 million, to $4.5 billion, as the Company continued to transform its deposit base. For the nine months ended September 30, 2011, core deposits grew $548.8 million, an annualized growth rate of 18%, with non-interest bearing demand accounts growing at an annualized rate of 41%.
  • Book value and tangible book value per common share were $15.43 and $14.72, respectively, at September 30, 2011.
  • During the third quarter, the Company filed applications to convert to a bank holding company, and to convert BankUnited, its wholly-owned thrift subsidiary, to a national commercial bank.
  • We continue to expand our branch network, opening 2 branches during the third quarter, with 10 additional branch openings planned for the fourth quarter.

Capital Ratios

BankUnited continues to maintain a robust capital position. The Bank's capital ratios at September 30, 2011 were as follows:

Tier 1 leverage 10.79%
Tier 1 risk-based capital 37.32%
Total risk-based capital 38.17%

BankUnited continues to exceed all regulatory guidelines required to be considered well capitalized.

At September 30, 2011, BankUnited, Inc.'s tangible common equity to tangible assets ratio was 13.08% (see Non-GAAP Financial Measure below).

Loans

Total loans increased to $4.0 billion at September 30, 2011 from $3.9 billion at December 31, 2010, as growth in new loans outpaced the continuing resolution of covered loans. New loans increased by $738.6 million or 135%, to $1.3 billion at September 30, 2011 from $548.9 million at December 31, 2010. Covered loans declined to $2.8 billion at September 30, 2011 from $3.4 billion at December 31, 2010.

In the third quarter of 2011, new commercial loans (including commercial loans, commercial real estate loans, and leases) grew $278.8 million to $917.6 million, reflecting the Company's expansion of market share in Florida. For the nine months ended September 30, 2011, the portfolio of new commercial loans grew $487.4 million from $430.2 million to $917.6 million.

For the quarter ended September 30, 2011, the Company's portfolio of new residential loans grew $99.2 million to $365.9 million, primarily reflecting the Company's purchase of residential loans outside of Florida to help diversify credit risk within the residential portfolio. For the nine months ended September 30, 2011, the portfolio of new residential loans grew $250.2 million from $115.7 million to $365.9 million.

A comparison of portfolio composition at September 30, 2011 and December 31, 2010 follows:

Commercial 48.0% 48.6% 16.6% 8.7%
Consumer 0.3% 0.6% 0.2% 0.2%

Asset Quality

The Company's asset quality remained strong, with credit risk limited by its Loss Sharing Agreements with the FDIC. At September 30, 2011, covered loans represented 68% of the total loan portfolio, as compared to 86% at December 31, 2010.

The ratio of non-performing loans to total loans was 0.87% at September 30, 2011 as compared to 0.89% at June 30, 2011 and 0.66% at December 31, 2010. At September 30, 2011, non-performing assets totaled $160.1 million, including $125.0 million of other real estate owned ("OREO") as compared to $175.6 million, including $141.7 million of OREO, at June 30, 2011, and $232.5 million, including $206.7 million of OREO, at December 31, 2010. All OREO at September 30, 2011 is covered by the Company's Loss Sharing Agreements.

For the quarters ended September 30, 2011 and 2010, the Company recorded provisions for loan losses of $1.3 million and $19.1 million, respectively. Of these amounts ($6.3) million and $18.1 million, respectively, related to covered loans and $7.6 million and $1.0 million, respectively, related to new loans. The recovery of provision for covered loans for the quarter ended September 30, 2011 resulted from the decline in total covered loans, improved cash flows from covered loans and improved roll rates in the covered portfolio. The provisions related to covered loans were significantly mitigated by (decreases) increases in non-interest income recorded in "Net gain (loss) on indemnification asset."

For the nine months ended September 30, 2011 and 2010, the Company recorded provisions for loan losses of $9.8 million and $45.2 million, respectively. Of these amounts, ($2.8) million and $42.6 million, respectively, related to covered loans, and $12.6 million and $2.6 million, respectively, related to new loans. The provisions related to covered loans were significantly mitigated by increases in non-interest income recorded in "Net gain (loss) on indemnification asset."

The following table summarizes the activity in the allowance for loan losses for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2011 and 2010 (in thousands):

Investment Securities

Investment securities grew to $3.9 billion at September 30, 2011 from $2.9 billion at December 31, 2010. The average yield on investment securities was 3.46% for the nine months ended September 30, 2011 as compared to 4.37% for the nine months ended September 30, 2010. The decline in yield reflects the impact of purchases of securities at lower prevailing market rates of interest.

Deposits

At September 30, 2011, core deposits totaled $4.5 billion as compared to $4.0 billion at December 31, 2010. Core deposits comprised 65% of total deposits at September 30, 2011 as compared to 56% of total deposits at December 31, 2010. Non-interest bearing demand accounts grew $151.2 million to $645.7 million during the nine months ended September 30, 2011, principally driven by growth in commercial and small business accounts. Total deposits declined to $6.9 billion at September 30, 2011 as compared to $7.2 billion at December 31, 2010 primarily as a result of continued run-off of time deposits. The average cost of interest bearing deposits was 1.18% for the quarter ended September 30, 2011 as compared to 1.53% for the quarter ended September 30, 2010 and 1.23% for the nine months ended September 30, 2011 as compared to 1.57% for the nine months ended September 30, 2010. The decrease in the average cost of deposits was primarily attributable to the continued shift of deposit mix from time deposits to lower cost deposit products and a decline in market rates of interest.

Net interest income

Net interest income for the quarter ended September 30, 2011 totaled $128.8 million, as compared to $98.8 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2010. Net interest income for the nine months ended September 30, 2011 was $358.4 million as compared to $287.5 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2010.

The Company's net interest margin for the quarter and nine months ended September 30, 2011 was 6.30% and 6.02%, respectively, as compared to 5.04% and 4.95% for the quarter and nine months ended September 30, 2010.

The Company's net interest margin for the quarter and nine months ended September 30, 2011, and to a lesser extent in the quarter and nine months ended September 30, 2010, was impacted by reclassification from non-accretable difference to accretable yield on ACI loans (defined as covered loans acquired with evidence of deterioration in credit quality). Non-accretable difference at the Acquisition represented the difference between the total contractual payments due and the cash flows expected to be received on these loans. The accretable yield on ACI loans represents the amount by which undiscounted expected future cash flows exceed the carrying value of the loans. As the Company's expected cash flows from ACI loans have increased since the Acquisition, the Company reclassified amounts from non-accretable difference to accretable yield.

Changes in accretable yield on ACI loans for the nine months ended September 30, 2011 and the year ended December 31, 2010 were as follows (in thousands):

Nine months ended Year ended
September 30, 2011 December 31, 2010
Balance, beginning of period $ 1,833,974 $ 1,734,233
Reclassifications from non-accretable difference 104,256 487,718
Accretion (325,937 ) (387,977 )
Balance, end of period $ 1,612,293 $ 1,833,974

Non-interest income

Non-interest income for the quarter ended September 30, 2011 was $32.8 million, as compared to $71.3 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2010. For the nine months ended September 30, 2011, non-interest income was $149.9 million as compared to $237.5 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2010.

Non-interest income for the quarter and nine months ended September 30, 2011 was impacted by lower accretion of discount on the FDIC indemnification asset of $10.8 million and $45.2 million respectively, as compared to $25.8 million and $116.9 million, respectively, for the quarter and nine months ended September 30, 2010. As the expected cash flows from ACI loans have increased as discussed above, the Company expects reduced cash flows from the FDIC indemnification asset, resulting in lowered accretion.

Income from resolution of covered assets, net was $4.7 million and $7.1 million, respectively, for the quarter and nine months ended September 30, 2011, as compared to $17.8 million and $112.8 million respectively, for the quarter and nine months ended September 30, 2010. As the Company has reclassified amounts from non-accretable difference to accretable yield as discussed above, income from the resolution of loans has decreased.

Net gain (loss) on indemnification asset was $(0.8) million and $36.9 million, respectively, for the quarter and nine months ended September 30, 2011, as compared to $5.1 million and $(44.9) million, respectively, for the quarter and nine months ended September 30, 2010. Factors impacting these changes included the variance in OREO and foreclosure related expenses as discussed below, as well as the variance in the provision for losses on covered loans and in income from resolution of covered assets, net as discussed above.

Non-interest expense

Non-interest expense totaled $79.8 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2011 as compared to $79.9 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2010. For the nine months ended September 30, 2011, non-interest expense totaled $380.0 million, as compared to $220.0 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2010. Non-interest expense for the nine months ended September 30, 2011 included a one-time compensation expense of $110.4 million recorded in conjunction with the Company's IPO in the first quarter of 2011.

Employee compensation and benefits (excluding the one-time charge of $110.4 million) and occupancy and equipment expense increased for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2011 over the respective 2010 periods, reflecting the Company's hiring of experienced commercial lending teams and the opening and refurbishment of branches. For the nine months ended September 30, 2011, the aggregate of OREO related expense, gain (loss) on sale of OREO, foreclosure expense, and impairment of other real estate owned totaled $72.7 million, as compared to $50.1 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2010. The higher level of expense for the nine months ended September 30, 2011 reflected the continuing high volume of foreclosure and OREO sales activity, and the continuing depreciation in home prices in the Company's market areas.

Non-GAAP Financial Measure

Tangible common equity to tangible assets is a non-GAAP financial measure. For purposes of computing tangible common equity to tangible assets, tangible common equity is calculated as common stockholders' equity less goodwill and other intangible assets, net, and tangible assets is calculated as total assets less goodwill and other intangible assets, net. Tangible common equity to tangible assets should not be viewed as a substitute for total stockholders' equity to total assets. The most directly comparable GAAP financial measure is total stockholders' equity to total assets. See the reconciliation below (dollars in thousands):

September 30, December 31,
2011 2010
Total stockholders' equity $ 1,500,906 $ 1,253,508
Less: goodwill and other intangible assets 68,751 69,011
Tangible common stockholders' equity $ 1,432,155 $ 1,184,497
Total assets $ 11,014,020 $ 10,869,560
Less: goodwill and other intangible assets 68,751 69,011
Tangible Assets $ 10,945,269 $ 10,800,549
Equity to assets 13.63 % 11.53 %
Tangible common equity to tangible assets 13.08 % 10.97 %

Management of the Company believes this non-GAAP financial measure provides an additional meaningful method of evaluating certain aspects of the Company's capital strength from period to period on a basis that may not be otherwise apparent under GAAP. Management also believes that this non-GAAP financial measure, which complements the capital ratios defined by regulators, is useful to investors who are interested in the Company's equity to assets ratio exclusive of the effect of changes in intangible assets on equity and total assets.

About BankUnited and the Acquisition

BankUnited, Inc. is a savings and loan holding company with two wholly-owned subsidiaries: BankUnited, which is one of the largest independent depository institutions headquartered in Florida by assets, and BankUnited Investment Services, Inc., a Florida insurance agency which provides comprehensive wealth management products and financial planning services. BankUnited is a federally-chartered, federally-insured savings association headquartered in Miami Lakes, Florida, with $11.0 billion of assets, more than 1300 professionals and 83 branches in 13 counties at September 30, 2011.

The Company was organized by a management team led by its Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer, John A. Kanas, on April 28, 2009. On May 21, 2009, BankUnited was granted a savings association charter and the newly formed bank acquired substantially all of the assets and assumed all of the non-brokered deposits and substantially all other liabilities of BankUnited, FSB from the FDIC, in a transaction referred as the "Acquisition". Concurrently with the Acquisition, BankUnited entered into two loss sharing agreements, or the "Loss Sharing Agreements", which cover certain legacy assets, including the entire legacy loan portfolio and OREO, and certain purchased investment securities. Assets covered by the Loss Sharing Agreements are referred to as covered assets (or, in certain cases, covered loans). Pursuant to the terms of the Loss Sharing Agreements, the covered assets are subject to a stated loss threshold whereby the FDIC will reimburse BankUnited for 80% of losses, including certain interest and expenses, up to the $4.0 billion stated threshold and 95% of losses in excess of the $4.0 billion stated threshold. The Company's current estimate of cumulative losses on the Covered Assets is approximately $4.7 billion. The Company has received $1.6 billion from the FDIC in reimbursements under the Loss Sharing Agreements for claims filed for incurred losses as of September 30, 2011.

We define non-performing loans to include nonaccrual loans, loans, other than ACI loans, that are past due 90 days or more and still accruing and certain loans modified in troubled debt restructurings. Contractually delinquent ACI loans on which interest continues to be accreted are excluded from non-performing loans. The carrying value of ACI loans contractually delinquent by more than 90 days, but not identified as non-performing was $469.8 million and $717.7 million at September 30, 2011 and December 31, 2010, respectively.

(2) Non-performing assets include non-performing loans and other real estate owned.
(3)

Total loans is net of unearned discounts and deferred fees and costs.
