CORRECTION - FinWise Bancorp

FINW

MURRAY, Utah, May 16, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- This press release corrects a prior version published on April 28, 2022 and is updated to revise the accounting treatment of certain deferred loan acquisition costs when the guaranteed portions of SBA 7(a) loans were sold. Subsequent to issuing the original press release and during the Company’s preparation of its Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarterly period ended March 31, 2022, the Company determined that it had been incorrectly accounting for such deferred loan acquisition costs. No corrections are required with respect to the Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarterly period ended March 31, 2022 as filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on May 16, 2022. In the first quarter of 2021, FinWise Bancorp started paying marketing fees (representing a new expense component to the Company) on SBA 7(a) loans, which are amortized over the life of the loan. The impact to the Company of correcting the accounting for such marketing fees and related deferred loan acquisition costs were reductions in interest income and net loan balances of $1.1 million and the provision for income taxes of $0.3 million for the first quarter ended March 31, 2022. As a result, the Company’s financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2022 previously reported in the original press release have been revised to reflect the foregoing changes to interest income and the provision for income taxes. This resulted in a $0.8 million reduction in net income for the first quarter ended March 31, 2022 comprising a cumulative correction of $0.6 million and $0.2 million for the year ended December 31, 2021 (as an out-of-period adjustment) and the quarter ended March 31, 2022, respectively. The Company’s revised net income is $9.4 million, or $0.70 per share, for the quarter ended March 31, 2022. The book value per share of the Company’s common stock decreased by $0.07 as a result of the revision to $9.77 per share at March 31, 2022. The revision had minimal impact on the Company’s capital ratios. The corrected release reads:

The most directly comparable GAAP financial measure is total shareholder’s equity. We had no goodwill or other intangible assets as of any of the dates indicated. We have not considered loan servicing rights as an intangible asset for purposes of this calculation. As a result, tangible shareholders’ equity is the same as total shareholders’ equity as of each of the dates indicated.

Net Income

Net income was $9.4 million for the first quarter of 2022, compared to $10.1 million for the fourth quarter of 2021, and nearly double the net income for the first quarter of 2021. The decline from the previous quarter was primarily due to a decrease in net interest income due to a change in the mix of loans and an increase in non-interest expense, partially offset by an increase in non-interest income driven by gain on sale of loans and higher strategic program fees. Compared to the prior year period, net income growth was primarily driven by increases in net interest income and non-interest income, partially offset by higher non-interest expenses and provision for loan loss.

Net Interest Income

Net interest income was $13.0 million for the first quarter of 2022, compared to $15.3 million for the fourth quarter of 2021, and $8.4 million for the first quarter of 2021. The decline from the previous quarter was primarily due to a change in the mix of held for sale loans reflecting higher average balances from strategic programs with lower yielding loans. Growth over the prior year period primarily reflected strong loan growth resulting in higher balances and an increase in average interest earning assets.

Loan originations totaled $2.5 billion for the first quarter of 2022, up 9.0% from $2.3 billion for the fourth quarter of 2021, and up 147.8% from $1.0 billion for the first quarter of 2021.

Net interest margin for the first quarter of 2022 was 13.4% compared to 16.6% for the fourth quarter of 2021 and 11.0% for the first quarter of 2021. The decline from the previous quarter was primarily driven by higher average held for sale and held for investment loan balances carrying lower yields from strategic programs. The decrease in net interest margin was partially offset by a change in the underlying mix of held for investment loans reflecting a decrease in lower yielding SBA 7(a) loans. The net interest margin increase from the first quarter of 2021 was driven mainly by a substantial reduction in average PPP loans with a notional interest rate of 1.0% outstanding.

Provision for Loan Losses

The Company’s provision for loan losses was $2.9 million for the first quarter of 2022, compared to $2.5 million for the fourth quarter of 2021 and $0.6 million for the first quarter of 2021. The increase from the previous quarter was primarily due to loan growth on unguaranteed loans held for investment and an increase in net charge-offs. The increase in the Company’s provision for loan losses for the first quarter of 2022 compared to the first quarter of 2021 was due to substantial loan growth and an increase in net charge-offs.

Non-interest Income

For the Three Months Ended
($s in thousands) 3/31/2022 12/31/2021 3/31/2021
Non-interest income:
Strategic program fees $ 6,623 $ 6,082 $ 2,953
Gain on sale of loans 5,052 1,813 2,603
SBA loan servicing fees 387 356 152
Change in fair value on investment in BFG (398 ) 864 360
Other miscellaneous income 18 14 11
Total non-interest income $ 11,682 $ 9,129 $ 6,079

Non-interest income was $11.7 million for the first quarter of 2022, an increase of 28.0% from $9.1 million for the fourth quarter of 2021, and nearly doubled from $6.1 million for the first quarter of 2021. The increase over both prior periods was driven primarily by higher gain on sale of loans due to an increase in the number of SBA 7(a) loans sold as well as an increase in strategic program fees due to significant loan origination volume. The increase over both periods was partially offset by a decrease in the change in fair value on investment in Business Funding Group, LLC (“BFG”) due primarily to the softening of comparable company values used in determining BFG fair value.

Non-interest Expense

For the Three Months Ended
($s in thousands) 3/31/2022 12/31/2021 3/31/2021
Non-interest expense:
Salaries and employee benefits $ 7,092 $ 6,052 $ 4,895
Occupancy and equipment expenses 302 208 194
(Recovery) impairment of SBA servicing asset (59 ) 800 -
Other operating expenses 1,713 1,311 1,574
Total non-interest expense $ 9,048 $ 8,371 $ 6,663

Non-interest expense was $9.0 million for the first quarter of 2022, compared to $8.4 million for the fourth quarter of 2021 and $6.7 million for the first quarter of 2021. The increase over both prior periods was primarily due to increased expenses from higher employee head count related to an increase in strategic program loan volume, the expansion of the Company’s information technology and security division to support enhancements to the Company’s infrastructure, and contractual bonuses paid relating to the expansion of the strategic programs. The increase compared to the fourth quarter of 2021 was partially offset by the minor recovery and lack of additional impairment on the SBA servicing asset in the first quarter of 2022.

The Company’s efficiency ratio was 36.7% for the first quarter of 2022 as compared to 34.3% for the fourth quarter of 2021 and 45.9% for the first quarter of 2021.

Tax Rate

The Company’s effective tax rate was approximately 25.4% for the first quarter of 2022, compared to 25.3% for the fourth quarter of 2021 and 26.7% for the first quarter of 2021.

Balance Sheet

The Company’s total assets were $424.5 million at March 31, 2022, an increase of 11.6% from $380.2 million at December 31, 2021, and an increase of 28.6% from $330.1 million at March 31, 2021. The increase over both prior periods was mainly due to growth in deposits to fund the Company’s growing Strategic Program loan portfolio. The increase in total assets compared to March 31, 2021 also reflected an increase in cash from the Company’s public stock offering and an increase in deposits to fund SBA 7(a) loans offset by a substantial decrease in borrowings under the PPP Liquidity Facility due to a decline in PPP loans outstanding.

The following table shows the loan portfolio as of the dates indicated:

Note: SBA loans as of March 31, 2022, December 31, 2021 and March 31, 2021 include $1.0 million, $1.1 million and $65.9 million in PPP loans, respectively. SBA loans as of March 31, 2022, December 31, 2021 and March 31, 2021 include $53.2 million, $75.7 million and $48.0 million, respectively, of SBA 7(a) loan balances that are guaranteed by the SBA.

Total loans receivable at March 31, 2022 increased 2.5% to $272.6 million from $265.8 million at December 31, 2021 and increased 11.1% from $245.2 million at March 31, 2021. The growth in loans receivable over both periods was due primarily to increases in strategic program loans. The increase in total loans compared to December 31, 2021 was partially offset by a decrease in SBA loans. Growth compared to March 31, 2021 was partially offset by a substantial decrease in PPP loans due to PPP loan forgiveness throughout 2021.

The following table shows the deposit composition as of the dates indicated:

As of
3/31/2022 12/31/2021 3/31/2021
($s in thousands) Total Percent Total Percent Total Percent

Total period end deposits $ 277,460 100.0 % $ 251,892 100.0 % $ 188,511 100.0 %

Total deposits at March 31, 2022 increased 10.2% to $277.5 million from $251.9 million at December 31, 2021, and increased 47.2% from $188.5 million at March 31, 2021. The increase from the fourth quarter of 2021 was driven primarily by an increase in money market deposits and noninterest-bearing demand deposits. The increase from the first quarter of 2021 was driven by a significant increase in money market accounts, noninterest-bearing demand deposits, and time certificates of deposit.

Total shareholders’ equity increased $9.6 million, or 8.2%, to $125.0 million at March 31, 2022 from $115.4 million at December 31, 2021. Compared to the period ending March 31, 2021, shareholder’s equity increased $72.7 million, or more than doubled from $52.3 million. The increase in shareholders’ equity over the prior quarter was mainly driven by an increase in net income during the first quarter of 2022. The increase over the prior year period was primarily due to the Company’s Initial Public Offering and an increase in net income.

Bank Regulatory Capital Ratios

The following table presents the leverage ratios for the Bank as of the dates indicated:

As of 2022 2021
3/31/2022 12/31/2021 Well-Capitalized Requirement Well-Capitalized Requirement
Leverage Ratio (Bank under CBLR) 19.1% 17.7% 9.0% 8.5%

The Bank’s capital levels remain significantly above well-capitalized guidelines as of the end of the first quarter of 2022.

Asset Quality
Nonperforming loans were $0.7 million or 0.2% of total loans receivable at March 31, 2022, compared to $0.7 million or 0.2% of total loans receivable at December 31, 2021 and $0.8 million or 0.3% of total loans receivable at March 31, 2021. As noted above, the provision for loan losses was $2.9 million for the first quarter of 2022, compared to $2.5 million for the fourth quarter of 2021 and $0.6 million for the first quarter of 2021. The Company’s allowance for loan losses to total loans (less PPP loans) was 3.7% at March 31, 2022 compared to 3.7% at December 31, 2021 and 3.4% at March 31, 2021. During the first quarter of 2022, the Company’s net charge-offs were $2.8 million, compared to $2.3 million during the fourth quarter of 2021 and $0.6 million during the first quarter of 2021. The increase in charge-offs during the first quarter of 2022 compared to the fourth quarter of 2021 was predominantly driven by the normalization of credit losses to pre-pandemic market conditions and by growth in the Company’s held for investment balances. The increase in charge-offs during the first quarter of 2022 compared to the first quarter of 2021 was mainly driven by growth in the Company’s held for investment balances related to four of its strategic programs.

(1) Tangible shareholders’ equity is defined as total shareholders’ equity less goodwill and other intangible assets. The most directly comparable GAAP financial measure is total shareholder’s equity. We had no goodwill or other intangible assets as of any of the dates indicated. We have not considered loan servicing rights as an intangible asset for purposes of this calculation. As a result, tangible shareholders’ equity is the same as total shareholders’ equity as of each of the dates indicated.
