Press Release

Southern National Bancorp of Virginia Inc. announces net income of $2.4 million for the year ended December 31, 2017 and a net loss of ($1.2) million for the quarter ended December 31, 2017, including merger expenses and the impact of the recently enacted Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017, and declares its twenty-fifth consecutive quarterly dividend

Company Release - 1/26/2018 3:30 PM ET

MCLEAN, Va., Jan. 26, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Southern National Bancorp of Virginia Inc. (NASDAQ: SONA) ("Southern National"), and its wholly-owned subsidiary Sonabank, announced today a net loss of ($1.2) million and net income of $2.4 million for the quarter and year ended December 31, 2017, respectively. That compares to net income of $2.2 million and $10.3 million for the quarter and year ended December 31, 2016, respectively.  Basic and diluted loss per share for the quarter ended December 31, 2017 were ($0.05), while basic and diluted earnings per share for the year ended December 31, 2017 were $0.13.  Southern National's results for the quarter and year ended December 31, 2017 were significantly impacted by the inclusion of $7.2 million in additional estimated income tax expense from the revaluation of its net deferred tax asset ("DTA") as a result of the reduction in the corporate income tax rate going forward under the recently enacted Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017 ("Tax Act") (see Impact of New Corporate Income Tax Law below for further discussion).  Also impacting Southern National's results for the quarter and year ended December 31, 2017 were tax-effected merger expenses of $253 thousand for the fourth quarter of 2017 and $6.7 million for the year ended December 31, 2017 related to the merger with Eastern Virginia Bankshares, Inc. ("EVBS").  Excluding the additional estimated income tax expense from the revaluation of its DTA and the tax-effected merger expenses, adjusted net income (Non-GAAP) was $6.3 million and $16.4 million for the quarter and year ended December 31, 2017, respectively.

The Board of Directors declared a dividend of $0.08 per share payable on February 23, 2018 to shareholders of record on February 12, 2018.  This is Southern National's twenty-fifth consecutive quarterly dividend. 

As previously reported, as of the close of business on June 23, 2017, Southern National completed its merger of EVBS with and into Southern National and the completion of the merger of EVBS's wholly-owned subsidiary, EVB, with and into Southern National's wholly-owned subsidiary, Sonabank.  This combination has brought together two banking companies with complementary business lines and created one of the premier banking institutions headquartered in the Commonwealth of Virginia. 

Impact of New Corporate Income Tax Law

As noted above, Southern National's results for the quarter and year ended December 31, 2017 were significantly impacted by the inclusion of $7.2 million in additional estimated income tax expense brought about from the revaluation of its DTA as a result of the reduction in the corporate income tax rate going forward under the recently enacted Tax Act. Due to the new law being enacted on December 22, 2017, this revaluation of the DTA was accounted for in the fourth quarter of 2017 through adjustments to Income Tax Expense on the Consolidated Statements of Operations. Southern National's DTA position is attributable primarily to the net operating losses acquired in the merger with EVBS and the timing difference created by the allowance for loan losses, which will be deductible at the lower U.S. corporate income tax rate beginning in 2018, as opposed to the higher rates in effect through December 31, 2017.  Although directly affecting its current period results, Southern National expects that its earnings beginning in 2018 will benefit from the lower corporate income tax rate going forward which will result in a reduction of income tax expense. 

Results for the fourth quarter include:

  • Loans receivable, net of unearned income increased $27.0 million, or 1.3% compared to the third quarter of 2017;
  • Strong operating performance during the fourth quarter of 2017 as evidenced by the 52.85% operating efficiency ratio. Southern National's earnings directly benefited from cost savings related to the merger with EVBS, including a reduction in the number of full time equivalent employees ("FTEs");
  • Employee compensation and benefits declined $1.2 million, or 15.6% on a linked-quarter basis, from $7.7 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2017 to $6.5 million for the quarter ended December 31, 2017;
  • Total noninterest expense declined $600 thousand, or 4.2% to $13.8 million for the quarter ended December 31, 2017, from the $14.4 million recorded for the quarter ended September 30, 2017;
  • Provision for loan losses declined $3.5 million, or 66.2% when comparing the $1.8 million provision for loan losses in the fourth quarter of 2017 to the $5.3 million provision for loan losses recorded in the third quarter of 2017;
  • The corporate income tax rate reduction associated with the recently enacted Tax Act caused a revaluation of Southern National's DTA and this estimate resulted in $7.2 million of additional income tax expense in the fourth quarter of 2017; and
  • Income before income taxes totaled $9.7 million for the three months ended December 31, 2017, as compared to income before income taxes of $6.5 million for the three months ended September 30, 2017, which was an improvement of $3.2 million, or 50.0%.

Net Interest Income

Net interest income was $23.0 million in the quarter ended December 31, 2017 compared to $10.1 million during the same period last year and $23.9 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2017.  Average loans during the fourth quarter of 2017 were $2.05 billion compared to $919.3 million during the same period last year and $2.04 billion for the quarter ended September 30, 2017.  Southern National's net interest margin was 3.86% in the fourth quarter of 2017 compared to 3.87% during the fourth quarter of 2016 and 4.02% for the quarter ended September 30, 2017.  The yield on average interest-earning assets decreased seven basis points to 4.69% during the fourth quarter of 2017 when comparing to the 4.76% yield on average interest-earning assets during the fourth quarter of 2016 and decreased seventeen basis points when compared to the 4.86% yield on average interest-earning assets during the third quarter of 2017.  Cost of funds improved six basis points to 0.88% for the fourth quarter of 2017 when compared to the 0.94% cost of funds during the fourth quarter of 2016. Cost of funds during the quarter ended September 30, 2017 was 0.88%. The accretion of the discount on loans acquired in the acquisitions of EVBS, Greater Atlantic Bank, HarVest and Prince Georges Federal Savings Bank ("PGFSB") contributed $2.0 million to net interest income during the three months ended December 31, 2017 compared to $481 thousand during the fourth quarter of 2016.

Net interest income was $67.9 million during the year ended December 31, 2017, compared to $40.3 million during the comparable period in the prior year.  Average loans during the year ended December 31, 2017 were $1.53 billion compared to $889.6 million during the same period last year.  Southern National's net interest margin was 3.87% during the year ended December 31, 2017 compared to 3.99% during the same period in 2016.  The loan discount accretions on the four aforementioned acquisitions were $4.5 million for the year ended December 31, 2017 compared to $2.1 million in the same period last year.

Noninterest income

During the fourth quarter of 2017, Southern National had noninterest income of $2.3 million compared to $151 thousand during the fourth quarter of 2016.  Income was recorded from the investment in Southern Trust Mortgage ("STM"), Southern National's mortgage affiliate, in the amount of $106 thousand compared to the $272 thousand loss during the same quarter last year.  Account maintenance and deposit service fees, which totaled $1.5 million for the fourth quarter of 2017, increased $1.2 million as compared to the same quarter last year, primarily driven by the increased retail deposits acquired in the merger with EVBS. Income from bank-owned life insurance, which totaled $298 thousand for the fourth quarter of 2017, increased $123 thousand when compared to the fourth quarter of 2016, primarily driven by additional income earned from the increase in bank-owned life insurance policies acquired in the merger with EVBS. Other noninterest income, which totaled $462 thousand for the fourth quarter of 2017, increased $435 thousand as compared to the same quarter last year. This increase was primarily driven by $196 thousand and $137 thousand in recoveries of acquired loan and investment security balances from the EVBS acquisition, respectively.  These loan and investment security balances were fully charged off by EVBS prior to its acquisition by Southern National. 

Noninterest income increased to $5.4 million in the year ended December 31, 2017 from $2.8 million in the year ended December 31, 2016.  The increase was primarily due to the $2.7 million increase in account maintenance and deposit service fees as discussed in the previous paragraph.  Southern National also recognized increases of $255 thousand and $911 thousand on gains on sales of investment securities and in other noninterest income, respectively.   Partially offsetting these increases was a $1.5 million decline in income from the investment in STM, which resulted in a loss of $345 thousand for the year ended December 31, 2017.  The decline in income from the investment in STM is mainly attributable to the overall decrease in STM's revenue due to a lower volume of mortgage loan closings.

Noninterest Expense

Noninterest expenses were $13.8 million and $49.1 million during the fourth quarter and year ended December 31, 2017, respectively, compared to $5.8 million and $22.8 million during the same periods in 2016, respectively.  Employee compensation and benefits expense totaled $6.5 million and $20.3 million for the fourth quarter and year ended December 31, 2017, respectively. Employee compensation and benefits expense decreased in the fourth quarter of 2017 as compared to the third quarter of 2017 as the last of the EVBS merger-related FTE reductions occurred. Occupancy expenses rose $693 thousand in the fourth quarter of 2017, to $1.5 million, when compared to the $778 thousand of occupancy expenses recorded during the fourth quarter of 2016, but declined $232 thousand when compared to the $1.7 million of occupancy expenses recorded in the third quarter of 2017. The increase from the fourth quarter of 2016 to the fourth quarter of 2017 is in line with the added occupancy expenses associated with the EVBS merger. Year to date, occupancy expense was $4.8 million.  Expenses related to the merger with EVBS were $332 thousand and $9.4 million during the fourth quarter and the year ended December 31, 2017, respectively, compared to $429 thousand in merger expenses during the same periods last year. Going forward, Southern National anticipates only nominal merger expenses related to the merger with EVBS. Other expenses increased $2.9 million, from $1.3 million recorded in the fourth quarter of 2016 to $4.2 million recorded in the same period in 2017.  The increase is in line with the anticipated added expenses associated with the EVBS merger.

Securities Portfolio

Investment securities, available for sale and held to maturity, totaled $259.6 million at December 31, 2017 up from $89.2 million at December 31, 2016.  The merger with EVBS contributed $182.8 million in available for sale and held to maturity investment securities on June 23, 2017.

    covering single family loans expires in December 2019. 

 

Loan Loss Provision/Asset Quality

Asset quality remains strong as of December 31, 2017.  The loan loss provision for the quarter ended December 31, 2017 was $1.8 million compared to $850 thousand for the fourth quarter of 2016.  For the year ended December 31, 2017, the loan loss provision was $8.6 million compared to $4.9 million for the same period last year.  Charge offs, net of recoveries, for the quarter and year ended December 31, 2017 were $1.6 million and $7.8 million, respectively, compared to $709 thousand and $4.7 million, respectively, for the same periods in 2016.

Southern National's allowance for loan losses as a percentage of non-covered total loans at December 31, 2017 was 0.46%, compared to 0.95% at the end of 2016. The main factor driving the 49 basis point decline in the allowance for loan losses as a percentage of non-covered total loans during the year ended December 31, 2017 was the loans acquired from EVBS, totaling $1.04 billion at June 23, 2017, which were marked to fair value at the merger date.  Management believes the allowance is adequate at this time but continues to monitor trends in environmental factors which may potentially affect future losses.

Non-covered nonaccrual loans were $12.3 million (excluding $4.7 million of loans fully covered by SBA guarantees) at December 31, 2017 compared to $1.6 million (excluding $2.2 million of loans fully covered by SBA guarantees) at the end of last year. The unguaranteed portions of the nonperforming SBA loans have been charged off. The ratio of non-covered nonperforming assets (excluding the SBA guaranteed loans) to total non-covered assets decreased from 0.92% at the end of 2016 to 0.77% at December 31, 2017.

OREO as of December 31, 2017 was $7.6 million compared to $8.6 million as of the end of the previous year. 

Deposits

Total deposits were $1.87 billion at December 31, 2017 compared to $913.0 million at December 31, 2016.   The merger with EVBS contributed $1.15 billion in deposits on June 23, 2017.  During the quarter ended December 31, 2017, noninterest-bearing demand deposits, money market accounts and certificates of deposit decreased by approximately $4.5 million, $9.3 million and $24.3 million, respectively. 

Stockholders' Equity

Total stockholders' equity increased from $126.3 million at December 31, 2016 to $322.8 million at December 31, 2017 primarily as a result of the consideration paid in the merger with EVBS.  Our estimated Tier 1 Risk Based Capital Ratios were 10.70% and 12.61% for Southern National and Sonabank, respectively, as of December 31, 2017.

As of December 31, 2017, Southern National had $2.61 billion in total assets, $1.87 billion in total deposits, and $2.06 billion in total loans. Sonabank provides a range of financial services to individuals and small and medium sized businesses.  At December 31, 2017, Sonabank had thirty-eight full-service retail branches in Virginia, located in the counties of Chesterfield (2), Essex (2), Fairfax (Reston, McLean and Fairfax), Gloucester (2), Hanover (3), King William, Lancaster, Middlesex (3), New Kent, Northumberland (3), Southampton, Surry, Sussex, and in Charlottesville, Clifton Forge, Colonial Heights, Front Royal, Hampton, Haymarket, Leesburg, Middleburg, New Market, Newport News, Richmond, South Riding, Warrenton, and Williamsburg, and seven full-service retail branches in Maryland, in Rockville, Shady Grove, Bethesda, Upper Marlboro, Brandywine, Owings and Huntingtown.

Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Measures

Statements included in this press release include non-GAAP financial measures and should be read along with the accompanying tables, which provide a reconciliation of non-GAAP financial measures to GAAP financial measures.  Southern National uses non-GAAP financial measures, adjusted net income and adjusted return on average assets and equity, to analyze its performance excluding merger related expenses and additional estimated income tax expense related to the DTA revaluation.  See reconciliation table below.

Management believes that non-GAAP financial measures provide additional useful information that allows readers to evaluate the ongoing performance of Southern National and provide meaningful comparison to its peers. Non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered as an alternative to any measure of performance or financial condition as promulgated under GAAP, and investors should consider Southern National's performance and financial condition as reported under GAAP and all other relevant information when assessing the performance or financial condition of Southern National. Non-GAAP financial measures have limitations as analytical tools, and investors should not consider them in isolation or as a substitute for analysis of the results or financial condition as reported under GAAP.
