MIAMI LAKES, Fla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jul. 26, 2017-- BankUnited, Inc. (the “Company”) (NYSE:BKU) today announced financial results for the quarter ended June 30, 2017.

For the quarter ended June 30, 2017, the Company reported net income of $66.4 million, or $0.60 per diluted share, compared to $56.7 million, or $0.52 per diluted share, for the quarter ended June 30, 2016. For the six months ended June 30, 2017, the Company reported net income of $128.7 million, or $1.17 per diluted share, compared to $111.6 million, or $1.03 per diluted share, for the six months ended June 30, 2016.

Rajinder Singh, President and Chief Executive Officer, said, "The second quarter was an excellent one for BankUnited, marked by margin expansion along with strong earnings and solid loan and deposit growth."

Performance Highlights

  • Net interest income increased by $25.3 million to $239.6 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2017 from $214.3 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2016. Interest income increased by $38.4 million, due primarily to increases in the average balances of loans and investment securities outstanding and to a lesser extent an increase in the yield on interest earning assets. Interest expense increased by $13.1 million, driven by increases in average interest bearing liabilities and the cost of those liabilities. For the six months ended June 30, 2017, net interest income increased by $49.0 million to $470.2 million from $421.2 million for the six months ended June 30, 2016.
  • The net interest margin, calculated on a tax-equivalent basis, increased to 3.76% for the quarter ended June 30, 2017 compared to 3.75% for the quarter ended June 30, 2016 and 3.70% for the immediately preceding quarter ended March 31, 2017. The net interest margin, calculated on a tax-equivalent basis, was 3.73% for the six months ended June 30, 2017 compared to 3.79% for the six months ended June 30, 2016.
  • Total interest earning assets increased by $1.1 billion during the second quarter of 2017. Non-covered loans and leases, including equipment under operating lease, grew by $836 million during the quarter. For the six months ended June 30, 2017, total interest earning assets increased by $1.2 billion.
  • Total deposits increased by $853 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2017 to $20.8 billion. For the six months ended June 30, 2017, total deposits increased by $1.3 billion.

Asset Quality and Allowance for Loan and Lease Losses

For the quarters ended June 30, 2017 and 2016, the Company recorded provisions for loan losses of $13.6 million and $14.3 million, respectively, including provisions related to non-covered loans of $12.0 million and $14.3 million. For the six months ended June 30, 2017 and 2016, the Company recorded provisions for loan losses of $25.7 million and $18.0 million, respectively, including provisions related to non-covered loans of $23.3 million and $18.7 million. The provision related to taxi medallion loans totaled $7.4 million and $4.6 million for the quarters ended June 30, 2017 and 2016, respectively, and $16.9 million and $5.8 million for the six months ended June 30, 2017 and 2016, respectively.

Significant factors contributing to the decrease in the provision for loan losses related to non-covered loans for the quarter ended June 30, 2017 as compared to the quarter ended June 30, 2016 were (i) a net decrease in the relative impact on the provision of changes in quantitative and qualitative loss factors and (ii) lower loan growth, partially offset by (iii) an increase in the provision related to taxi medallion loans.

Factors contributing to the increase in the provision for loan losses related to non-covered loans for the six months ended June 30, 2017 as compared to the six months ended June 30, 2016 were (i) the increase in the provision related to taxi medallion loans and (ii) an increase in the provision related to impaired loans in other portfolio segments, partially offset by (iii) a net decrease in the relative impact on the provision of changes in quantitative and qualitative loss factors and (iv) the impact of lower loan growth in 2017.

Non-covered, non-performing loans totaled $135.8 million or 0.69% of total non-covered loans at June 30, 2017 compared to $132.7 million or 0.71% of total non-covered loans at December 31, 2016. Non-performing taxi medallion loans comprised $66.2 million or 0.34% of total non-covered loans at June 30, 2017 and $60.7 million or 0.32% of total non-covered loans at December 31, 2016. Non-covered, non-performing assets also included $6.0 million and $8.4 million of OREO and other repossessed assets at June 30, 2017 and December 31, 2016, respectively.

The ratios of the allowance for non-covered loan and lease losses to total non-covered loans and to non-performing, non-covered loans were 0.77% and 111.30%, respectively, at June 30, 2017, compared to 0.80% and 113.68% at December 31, 2016. The annualized ratio of net charge-offs to average non-covered loans was 0.25% for the six months ended June 30, 2017, compared to 0.09% for the six months ended June 30, 2016. A majority of the increase in the net charge-off ratio is attributable to charge-offs of taxi medallion loans.

Charge-offs related to taxi medallion loans totaled $5.9 million and $1.1 million for the quarters ended June 30, 2017 and 2016, respectively, and $11.8 million and $1.6 million for the six months ended June 30, 2017 and 2016, respectively.

Deposits

At June 30, 2017, deposits totaled $20.8 billion compared to $19.5 billion at December 31, 2016. The average cost of total deposits was 0.79% for the quarter ended June 30, 2017, compared to 0.72% for the immediately preceding quarter ended March 31, 2017 and 0.66 % for the quarter ended June 30, 2016. The average cost of total deposits was 0.76% for the six months ended June 30, 2017, compared to 0.64% for the six months ended June 30, 2016.

Net interest income

Net interest income for the quarter ended June 30, 2017 increased to $239.6 million from $214.3 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2016. Net interest income was $470.2 million for the six months ended June 30, 2017, compared to $421.2 million for the six months ended June 30, 2016. Increases in interest income were partially offset by increases in interest expense. The increases in interest income were primarily attributable to an increase in the average balance of loans and related average yields. Increases in the average balance of investment securities and related average yields also contributed to increased interest income. Interest expense increased due to an increase in average interest bearing liabilities and an increase in the cost of funds.

The Company’s net interest margin, calculated on a tax-equivalent basis, was 3.76% for the quarter ended June 30, 2017 compared to 3.70% for the immediately preceding quarter ended March 31, 2017 and 3.75% for the quarter ended June 30, 2016. Increases in the yields on loans and investment securities, as discussed further below, more than offset increases in the cost of interest bearing liabilities.

Net interest margin, calculated on a tax-equivalent basis, was 3.73% for the six months ended June 30, 2017 compared to 3.79% for the six months ended June 30, 2016. The yield on interest earning assets remained unchanged, as the decrease in the average yield on loans as discussed below was offset by an increase in the yield on investment securities, while the cost of interest bearing liabilities increased.

Significant factors impacting the changes in net interest margin for the quarter and six months ended June 30, 2017 compared to the quarter and six months ended June 30, 2016 included:

  • The tax-equivalent yield on loans increased to 5.24% for the quarter ended June 30, 2017 from 5.14% for the quarter ended June 30, 2016. This increase reflected increased yields on both non-covered and covered loans, somewhat offset by the continued increase in new loans, originated at yields lower than those on covered loans, as a percentage of total loans.
  • Although yields on both non-covered and covered loans increased, the tax-equivalent yield on loans declined to 5.15% for the six months ended June 30, 2017 from 5.20% for the six months ended June 30, 2016, primarily because lower yielding new loans comprised a greater percentage of total loans.
  • The tax-equivalent yield on non-covered loans was 3.78% and 3.70%, respectively, for the quarter and six months ended June 30, 2017, compared to 3.56% and 3.59% for the quarter and six months ended June 30, 2016. The most significant factor contributing to increased yields on non-covered loans was the impact of increases in market interest rates.
  • The tax-equivalent yield on covered loans increased to 54.51% and 52.10%, respectively, for the quarter and six months ended June 30, 2017 from 40.97% and 39.54% for the quarter and six months ended June 30, 2016.
  • The tax-equivalent yield on investment securities increased to 3.05% and 3.03%, respectively, for the quarter and six months ended June 30, 2017 from 2.82% and 2.80% for the quarter and six months ended June 30, 2016.
  • The average rate on interest bearing liabilities increased to 1.07% and 1.03%, respectively, for the quarter and six months ended June 30, 2017 from 0.93% and 0.94% for the quarter and six months ended June 30, 2016, reflecting higher average rates on both interest bearing deposits and FHLB advances. Increases in the cost of interest bearing liabilities primarily reflect increases in market rates.

The Company’s net interest margin continues to be impacted by reclassifications from non-accretable difference to accretable yield on ACI loans. Non-accretable difference at 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 represented the amount by which undiscounted expected future cash flows exceeded the recorded investment in the loans. As the Company’s expected cash flows from ACI loans have increased since the FSB Acquisition, the Company has reclassified amounts from non-accretable difference to accretable yield.

Changes in accretable yield on ACI loans for the six months ended June 30, 2017 and the year ended December 31, 2016 were as follows (in thousands):

Balance at December 31, 2015   $ 902,565
Reclassifications from non-accretable difference 76,751
Accretion (303,931 )
Balance at December 31, 2016 675,385
Reclassifications from non-accretable difference 53,338
Accretion (153,199 )
Balance at June 30, 2017 $ 575,524  
 

Non-interest income

Non-interest income totaled $29.9 million and $58.0 million, respectively, for the quarter and six months ended June 30, 2017 compared to $28.9 million and $52.1 million, respectively, for the quarter and six months ended June 30, 2016.

Non-interest expense

Non-interest expense totaled $160.4 million and $317.0 million, respectively, for the quarter and six months ended June 30, 2017 compared to $144.1 million and $286.2 million, respectively, for the quarter and six months ended June 30, 2016. The most significant components of the increases in non-interest expense for the quarter and six months were increases in amortization of the FDIC indemnification asset of $7.6 million and $12.4 million, respectively, and increases in employee compensation and benefits of $4.6 million and $8.8 million, respectively.

Amortization of the FDIC indemnification asset was $45.7 million and $90.1 million, respectively, for the quarter and six months ended June 30, 2017, compared to $38.1 million and $77.8 million, respectively, for the quarter and six months ended June 30, 2016. The amortization rate increased to 41.76% and 38.92%, respectively, for the quarter and six months ended June 30, 2017 from 23.08% and 22.65%, respectively, for the quarter and six months ended June 30, 2016. As the expected cash flows from ACI loans have increased, expected cash flows from the FDIC indemnification asset have decreased, resulting in continued increases in the amortization rate.

Provision for income taxes

The effective income tax rate was 30.4% and 30.6%, respectively, for the quarter and six months ended June 30, 2017, compared to 33.0% and 33.9%, respectively, for the quarter and six months ended June 30, 2016. The effective income tax rate differed from the statutory federal income tax rate of 35% in both periods due primarily to the effect of income not subject to tax, partially offset by state income taxes. In addition, the effective income tax rate for the six months ended June 30, 2017 reflected the impact of excess tax benefits resulting from activity related to vesting of share-based awards and exercise of stock options in the amount of $2.9 million. A change in accounting standards related to stock based compensation required the Company to recognize these excess tax benefits as a component of the provision for income taxes beginning January 1, 2017; previously these excess tax benefits were recognized in paid-in capital.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Tangible book value per common share is a non-GAAP financial measure. Management believes this measure is relevant to understanding the capital position and performance of the Company. Disclosure of this non-GAAP financial measure also provides a meaningful base for comparability to other financial institutions. The following table reconciles the non-GAAP financial measurement of tangible book value per common share to the comparable GAAP financial measurement of book value per common share at June 30, 2017 (in thousands except share and per share data):

Total stockholders’ equity   $ 2,580,820
Less: goodwill and other intangible assets 77,919
Tangible stockholders’ equity $ 2,502,901

About BankUnited, Inc. and the FSB Acquisition

BankUnited, Inc., with total assets of $29.0 billion at June 30, 2017, is the bank holding company of BankUnited, N.A., a national bank headquartered in Miami Lakes, Florida with 90 banking centers in 15 Florida counties and 6 banking centers in the New York metropolitan area at June 30, 2017.

On May 21, 2009, BankUnited 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 to as the FSB Acquisition. Concurrently with the FSB Acquisition, BankUnited entered into two loss sharing agreements, or the Loss Sharing Agreements, which covered 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”). The Loss Sharing Agreements do not apply to subsequently purchased or originated loans (“new loans”) or other assets. Effective May 22, 2014 and consistent with the terms of the Loss Sharing Agreements, loss share coverage was terminated for those commercial loans and OREO and certain investment securities that were previously covered under the Loss Sharing Agreements. 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 $3.6 billion. The Company has received $2.7 billion from the FDIC in reimbursements under the Loss Sharing Agreements for claims filed for incurred losses as of June 30, 2017.
