Valley National Bancorp Announces Second Quarter 2023 Results

NEW YORK, July 27, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Valley National Bancorp (NASDAQ:VLY), the holding company for Valley National Bank, today reported net income for the second quarter 2023 of $139.1 million, or $0.27 per diluted common share, as compared to the second quarter 2022 net income of $96.4 million, or $0.18 per diluted common share, and net income of $146.6 million, or $0.28 per diluted common share, for the first quarter 2023. Excluding all non-core charges, our adjusted net income (a non-GAAP measure) was $147.1 million, or $0.28 per diluted common share, for the second quarter 2023, $165.8 million, or $0.32 per diluted common share, for second quarter 2022, and $154.5 million, or $0.30 per diluted common share, for the first quarter 2023. See further details below, including a reconciliation of our non-GAAP adjusted net income, in the "Consolidated Financial Highlights" tables.

Key financial highlights for the second quarter:

  • Loan Portfolio: Total loans increased $1.2 billion, or 10.0 percent on an annualized basis, to $49.9 billion at June 30, 2023 from March 31, 2023 mainly as a result of new commercial loan production from mostly seasoned customer relationships and the continuation of slower prepayment activity within the loan portfolio. See the "Loans" section below for more details.
  • Allowance and Provision for Credit Losses for Loans: The allowance for credit losses for loans totaled $458.7 million and $461.0 million at June 30, 2023 and March 31, 2023, respectively, representing 0.92 percent and 0.95 percent of total loans at each respective date. During the second quarter 2023, the provision for credit losses for loans totaled $6.3 million as compared to $9.5 million and $43.7 million for the first quarter 2023 and second quarter 2022, respectively.
  • Credit Quality: Total accruing past due loans decreased $38.5 million to $61.8 million, or 0.12 percent of total loans, at June 30, 2023 as compared to $100.3 million, or 0.21 percent of total loans, at March 31, 2023. Non-accrual loans represented 0.51 percent and 0.50 percent of total loans at June 30, 2023 and March 31, 2023, respectively. Net loan charge-offs totaled $8.6 million for the second quarter 2023 as compared to $30.4 million and $2.3 million for the first quarter 2023 and second quarter 2022, respectively. See the "Credit Quality" section below for more details.
  • Deposits: Total deposits increased $2.0 billion to $49.6 billion at June 30, 2023 as compared to $47.6 billion at March 31, 2023 largely due to increases in indirect customer deposits and retail CDs. See the "Deposits" section below for more details.
  • Net Interest Income and Margin: Net interest income on a tax equivalent basis of $421.3 million for the second quarter 2023 decreased $16.2 million compared to the first quarter 2023 and increased $1.7 million as compared to the second quarter 2022. Our net interest margin on a tax equivalent basis decreased by 22 basis points to 2.94 percent in the second quarter 2023 as compared to 3.16 percent for the first quarter 2023. The decline in both net interest income and margin as compared to the linked first quarter reflects the impact of rising market interest rates on interest bearing deposits and incremental short-term borrowings held during the second quarter 2023. While our cash position declined compared to the linked quarter, elevated liquidity on an average basis continued to weigh on our net interest margin during the quarter. See the "Net Interest Income and Margin" section below for more details.
  • Non-Interest Income: Non-interest income increased $5.8 million to $60.1 million for the second quarter 2023 as compared to the first quarter 2023 mainly due to a $6.1 million increase in capital market fees. The increase in capital market fees was largely driven by additional fee income from a higher volume of interest rate swap transactions executed for commercial loan customers during the second quarter 2023.
  • Non-Interest Expense: Non-interest expense increased $10.8 million to $283.0 million for the second quarter 2023 as compared to the first quarter 2023 primarily due to a non-core charge of $11.2 million recorded within salary and employee benefits expense largely related to recent workforce reductions. Salary and employee benefits expense increased $4.6 million from first quarter 2023 mainly due to the non-core charge, partially offset by lower cash incentive compensation expense and payroll taxes. Additionally, professional and legal fees increased $4.6 million from first quarter 2023 mostly due to higher technology consulting and managed services, while technology, furniture and equipment expense decreased $4.0 million during the second quarter 2023 due, in part, to lower depreciation expense.
  • Efficiency Ratio: Our efficiency ratio was 55.59 percent for the second quarter 2023 as compared to 53.79 percent and 50.78 percent for the first quarter 2023 and second quarter 2022, respectively. See the "Consolidated Financial Highlights" tables below for additional information regarding our non-GAAP measures.
  • Performance Ratios: Annualized return on average assets (ROA), shareholders’ equity (ROE) and tangible ROE were 0.90 percent, 8.50 percent and 12.37 percent for the second quarter 2023, respectively. Annualized ROA, ROE, and tangible ROE, adjusted for non-core charges, were 0.95 percent, 8.99 percent and 13.09 percent for the second quarter 2023, respectively. See the "Consolidated Financial Highlights" tables below for additional information regarding our non-GAAP measures.

Ira Robbins, CEO commented, "In a challenging and competitive operating environment, Valley continues to exhibit strong and stable asset quality which has set us apart throughout our history. This strength is the product of significant granularity and diversity on both sides of the balance sheet. Further, our ability to service and support our premier clientele will drive our ongoing success in a volatile market."

Mr. Robbins continued, "We will continue to navigate the current impact of an inverted yield curve through a combination of thoughtful and methodical growth and diligent expense management. Our commitment to our local communities remains paramount, and we believe that a brighter future lies ahead for both Valley and the banking industry as a whole."

Net Interest Income and Margin

Net interest income on a tax equivalent basis totaling $421.3 million for the second quarter 2023 decreased $16.2 million as compared to the first quarter 2023 and increased $1.7 million as compared to the second quarter 2022. The decrease as compared to the first quarter 2023 was mainly due to a $3.3 billion increase in average interest bearing liabilities and higher interest rates on most interest bearing deposit products and short-term borrowings, partially offset by higher loan yields. As a result, interest expense increased $83.5 million to $367.7 million for the second quarter 2023 as compared to the first quarter 2023. Interest income on a tax equivalent basis increased $67.3 million to $789.0 million in the second quarter 2023 as compared to the first quarter 2023. The increase was mostly due to higher yields on both new originations and adjustable rate loans in our portfolio and a $1.6 billion increase in average loan balances driven by organic new loan volumes and a continuation of slower loan prepayments.

Net interest margin on a tax equivalent basis of 2.94 percent for the second quarter 2023 decreased by 22 basis points and 49 basis points from 3.16 percent and 3.43 percent for the first quarter 2023 and the second quarter 2022, respectively. The decrease as compared to the first quarter 2023 was largely driven by higher interest rates on interest bearing deposits and short-term borrowings, partially offset by a 29 basis point increase in the yield on average interest earning assets. The yield on average loans increased by 30 basis points to 5.78 percent for the second quarter 2023 as compared to the first quarter 2023 largely due to higher interest rates on new originations and adjustable rate loans. The yields on average taxable and non-taxable investments also increased 13 basis points and 16 basis points, respectively, from the first quarter 2023 mostly due to investment maturities and prepayments redeployed into new higher yielding securities during the first half of 2023. Our cost of total average deposits increased to 2.45 percent for the second quarter 2023 from 1.96 percent and 0.19 percent for the first quarter 2023 and the second quarter 2022, respectively. The overall cost of average interest bearing liabilities also increased 57 basis points to 3.59 percent for the second quarter 2023 as compared to the first quarter 2023 primarily driven by the rising market interest rates on deposits during the first half of 2023.

Loans, Deposits and Other Borrowings

Loans. Loans increased $1.2 billion to approximately $49.9 billion at June 30, 2023 from March 31, 2023 mainly due to continued organic loan growth in commercial loan categories and low levels of prepayment activity during the second quarter 2023. Total commercial real estate (including construction) and commercial and industrial loans increased $831.8 million, or 10.8 percent, and $243.4 million, or 10.8 percent, respectively, on an annualized basis during the second quarter 2023. Residential mortgage loans increased $74.1 million during the second quarter 2023 as we largely originated new portfolio loans held for investment. During the second quarter 2023, we sold $44.5 million of residential mortgage loans as compared to $27.3 million in the first quarter 2023. Residential mortgage loans held for sale at fair value totaled $23.0 million and $17.2 million at June 30, 2023 and March 31, 2023, respectively. At June 30, 2023, loans held for sale also included one non-performing construction loan totaling $10.0 million, net of charge-offs, transferred from the loan portfolio during the second quarter 2023.

Deposits. Total deposits increased $2.0 billion to $49.6 billion at June 30, 2023 from March 31, 2023 mainly due to a $3.8 billion increase in time deposits, partially offset by decreases in non-interest bearing deposits, and savings, NOW and money market deposits totaling $1.1 billion and $626.1 million, respectively. The increase in time deposits from March 31, 2023 was partially attributable to higher fully-insured indirect customer CD balances at June 30, 2023. Non-interest bearing deposits; savings, NOW and money market deposits; and time deposits represented approximately 25 percent, 45 percent and 30 percent of total deposits as of June 30, 2023, respectively, as compared to 29 percent, 48 percent and 23 percent of total deposits as of March 31, 2023, respectively.

Other Borrowings. Short-term borrowings decreased $5.3 billion to $1.1 billion at June 30, 2023 as compared to March 31, 2023 mainly due to maturities and repayment of FHLB advances. In March 2023, we increased our short-term borrowings to bolster our liquidity position out of an abundance of caution in the wake of the two bank failures and subsequently managed these balances to a lower level during the second quarter 2023, partially through the greater use of time deposits. We continue to closely monitor changes in the current banking environment and have substantial access to additional liquidity. Long-term borrowings totaled $2.4 billion at June 30, 2023 and remained relatively unchanged as compared to March 31, 2023.

Credit Quality

Non-Performing Assets (NPAs). Total NPAs, consisting of non-accrual loans, other real estate owned (OREO) and other repossessed assets, increased $11.2 million to $256.1 million at June 30, 2023 as compared to March 31, 2023 mostly driven by an increase in non-accrual loans. Non-accrual commercial real estate loans increased $14.8 million to $82.7 million at June 30, 2023 due, in part, to the migration of two loans totaling $10.2 million from the 30 to 59 days past due delinquency category at March 31, 2023 and one new $4.5 million non-performing loan at June 30, 2023. Non-accrual construction loans decreased $5.6 million to $63.0 million at June 30, 2023 from March 31, 2023 primarily due to the $4.2 million partial charge-off of one loan, which was transferred to loans held for sale at June 30, 2023. Non-accrual loans represented 0.51 percent of total loans at June 30, 2023 compared to 0.50 percent at March 31, 2023.

Accruing Past Due Loans. Total accruing past due loans (i.e., loans past due 30 days or more and still accruing interest) decreased $38.5 million to $61.8 million, or 0.12 percent of total loans, at June 30, 2023 as compared to $100.3 million, or 0.21 percent of total loans at March 31, 2023.

Loans 30 to 59 days past due decreased $20.9 million at June 30, 2023 as compared to March 31, 2023 due, in part, to the aforementioned commercial real estate loans totaling $10.2 million included in this delinquency category at March 31, 2023 that moved to non-accrual loans at June 30, 2023. Commercial and industrial loans 30 to 59 days past due decreased $14.5 million mainly due to improved performance during the second quarter 2023. Loans 60 to 89 days past due decreased $14.8 million to $12.9 million at June 30, 2023 as compared to March 31, 2023 largely due to a commercial and industrial loan relationship totaling $21.2 million included in this delinquency category at March 31, 2023 that became current with respect to its contractual payments at June 30, 2023. Loans 90 days or more past due and still accruing interest decreased $2.8 million to $15.0 million at June 30, 2023 as compared to March 31, 2023. All loans 90 days or more past due and still accruing interest are well-secured and in the process of collection.

Our loan portfolio, totaling $49.9 billion at June 30, 2023, had net loan charge-offs totaling $8.6 million for the second quarter 2023 as compared to $30.4 million and $2.3 million for the first quarter 2023 and the second quarter 2022, respectively. Gross charge-offs totaled $11.3 million for the second quarter 2023 and included the $4.2 million partial charge-off related to the valuation of a non-performing construction loan transferred from the held for investment loan portfolio to loans held for sale at June 30, 2023. This construction loan had specific reserves of $5.2 million within the allowance for loan losses at March 31, 2023 and, as a result, the partial charge-off was fully reserved for prior to the second quarter 2023.

The allowance for credit losses for loans, comprised of our allowance for loan losses and unfunded credit commitments, as a percentage of total loans was 0.92 percent at June 30, 2023 as compared to 0.95 percent and 1.13 percent at March 31, 2023 and June 30, 2022, respectively. During the second quarter 2023, the provision for credit losses for loans totaled $6.3 million as compared to $9.5 million and $43.7 million for the first quarter 2023 and second quarter 2022, respectively. At June 30, 2023, our allowance for credit losses for loans as a percentage of total loans decreased as compared to March 31, 2023 as higher economic forecast reserves driven by a more pessimistic Moody's Baseline outlook was more than offset by lower non-economic qualitative reserves for commercial loans. The net impact of other changes in quantitative reserves for each loan category was not significant to the total allowance for loan losses at June 30, 2023.  

Capital Adequacy

Valley's total risk-based capital, common equity Tier 1 capital, Tier 1 capital and Tier 1 leverage capital ratios were 11.52 percent, 9.03 percent, 9.47 percent and 7.86 percent, respectively, at June 30, 2023.

NOTES TO SELECTED FINANCIAL DATA

(1) Net interest income and net interest margin are presented on a tax equivalent basis using a 21 percent federal tax rate. Valley believes that this presentation provides comparability of net interest income and net interest margin arising from both taxable and tax-exempt sources and is consistent with industry practice and SEC rules.
(2) Represents the allowance for acquired PCD loans, net of PCD loan charge-offs totaling $62.4 million in the second quarter 2022.
(3) Non-GAAP Reconciliations. This press release contains certain supplemental financial information, described in the Notes below, which has been determined by methods other than U.S. Generally Accepted Accounting Principles ("GAAP") that management uses in its analysis of Valley's performance. The Company believes that the non-GAAP financial measures provide useful supplemental information to both management and investors in understanding Valley’s underlying operational performance, business and performance trends, and may facilitate comparisons of our current and prior performance with the performance of others in the financial services industry. Management utilizes these measures for internal planning, forecasting and analysis purposes. Management believes that Valley’s presentation and discussion of this supplemental information, together with the accompanying reconciliations to the GAAP financial measures, also allows investors to view performance in a manner similar to management. These non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for or superior to financial measures calculated in accordance with U.S. GAAP. These non-GAAP financial measures may also be calculated differently from similar measures disclosed by other companies.
