Net income for the second quarter of 2019 was $5.5 million, or $0.78 per diluted common share ("EPS"), compared to $5.7 million, or $0.85 EPS, in the first quarter of 2019 and $5.5 million, or $0.82 EPS, in the second quarter of 2018.

Net income for the six months ended June 30, 2019, was $11.2 million, or $1.63 EPS, an increase of $471,000 or 4.4%, compared to $10.8 million, or $1.59 EPS, for the six months ended June 30, 2018.

On May 7, 2019, the Company completed its initial public offering ("IPO") with the issuance of 663,320 shares of common stock at a public offering price of $45.00 per share. The Company received net proceeds of approximately $26.8 million in the offering. The shares began trading on the Nasdaq Global Select Market on May 3, 2019, under the ticker symbol “RRBI.”

Second Quarter 2019 Performance and Operational Highlights

  • The Company's stock was selected to be included in the Russell 2000 Index.

  • Net income was $5.5 million, which is $158,000, or 2.8%, lower compared to the first quarter of 2019 and was consistent with the second quarter of 2018.

  • Loans held for investment ("HFI") increased 3.3% from March 31, 2019, and 4.9% from December 31, 2018.

  • Deposits decreased 3.3% from March 31, 2019. The first quarter of 2019 included seasonally high public entity deposit balances and a large, temporary deposit.

  • As of June 30, 2019, the loans HFI to deposits ratio was 85.23% and the noninterest-bearing deposits to total deposits ratio was 35.30%.

  • Net interest margin, fully tax equivalent basis ("FTE"), decreased by one basis point to 3.51% for the second quarter of 2019 from 3.52% for the first quarter of 2019.

  • The cost of deposits was 0.60% for the second quarter of 2019, three basis points higher than 0.57% for the prior quarter.

  • The net charge-offs to average loans ratio for both the quarter and six months ended June 30, 2019, were 0.00%.

  • As planned, a portion of the proceeds from the IPO are being used to redeem the $11.3 million of junior subordinated debentures. In June 2019, $6.2 million of the junior subordinated debentures with an average rate at payoff of 5.21% were redeemed, and the two related business trusts were terminated. The Company incurred approximately $50,000 of nonrecurring expenses in the second quarter of 2019 relating to these redemptions.

  • We completed the expansion of a new market headquarters building in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, providing a central office for commercial, mortgage, and investment department operations. In the second quarter of 2019, nonrecurring expenses of approximately $130,000 related to this location were incurred.

  • On April 3, 2019, we opened a loan production office in a new market, Covington, Louisiana. As a result, the second quarter of 2019 included a full quarter of lending services and the related personnel and operating expenses for this location.

Blake Chatelain, President and Chief Executive Officer of the Company, stated, “We are pleased to have completed our initial public offering, listing our stock on the Nasdaq Global Select Market and being selected to be included in the Russell 2000 Index. Listing our common stock on Nasdaq and the proceeds from the offering allow us to continue to grow organically and through strategic acquisitions. As planned, we utilized a portion of the offering funds to redeem over half of our junior subordinated debentures in June."

With regard to second quarter activities, Mr. Chatelain said, "In the second quarter, the Company had steady banking activity while investing for future growth in new markets and personnel. The new Baton Rouge market headquarters building has improved customer service and provides room to grow our commercial banking team, and our Covington bankers are busy introducing Red River Bank to this vibrant Louisiana market. Our focus is on executing well daily while keeping an eye on future opportunities. We believe this furthers our goal of staying dedicated to our customers and communities while also driving value for our shareholders."

Net Interest Income and Net Interest Margin (FTE)

Net interest income for the second quarter of 2019 was $15.7 million, $199,000, or 1.3%, higher than the first quarter of 2019. Average earning assets were $1.79 billion for the second quarter of 2019, $11.3 million, or 0.6%, higher than the first quarter of 2019. The net interest margin (FTE), was 3.51% for the second quarter of 2019, one basis point lower than the prior quarter.

The yield on total loans decreased one basis point to 4.60% for the second quarter of 2019 compared to the prior quarter. The loan yield for the first quarter of 2019 included higher interest income on nonaccrual loans than in the second quarter of 2019. The yield on accruing loans increased by four basis points in the second quarter.

The cost of deposits increased three basis points to 0.60% for the second quarter of 2019 compared to the prior quarter primarily as a result of increasing time deposit rates in the second quarter.

Noninterest Income

Noninterest income totaled $4.1 million for the second quarter of 2019, an increase of $803,000, or 24.4%, compared to $3.3 million for the previous quarter. The increase was mainly due to higher brokerage income, higher mortgage loan income, and a dividend from a Small Business Investment Company limited partnership ("SBIC") of which Red River Bank is a member.

Brokerage income totaled $626,000 for the second quarter of 2019, up $261,000, or 71.5%, from the prior quarter.  This increase is due to continued growth in assets under management and higher trading activity in the second quarter driven by the strong stock market.

Mortgage loan income for the second quarter of 2019 totaled $657,000, an increase of $143,000, or 27.8%, from the first quarter of 2019. This increase was driven by seasonal mortgage loan demand, increased advertising efforts, and lower mortgage interest rates.

Other income increased by $204,000 from the prior quarter. This increase was a result of receiving a $214,000 dividend from the SBIC in the second quarter of 2019. No dividend was received in the first quarter of 2019 from the SBIC.

Operating Expense

Operating expense for the second quarter 2019 totaled $12.4 million, an increase of $1.2 million, or 11.2%, compared to $11.2 million for the first quarter of 2019. The increase was mainly due to higher personnel, advertising, loan, and occupancy expenses.

Personnel expenses totaled $7.0 million for the second quarter of 2019, up $365,000, or 5.5%, from the first quarter of 2019. This increase was due to staff added for the new Covington market, annual merit rate increases effective in April 2019, and increased revenue-based commission compensation.

Advertising expense increased by $187,000, or 89.5%, between the first and second quarters of 2019. The increase was due to expanded media campaigns and marketing events in the second quarter of 2019 in our newer markets.

Loan and deposit expenses totaled $392,000 for the second quarter of 2019, up $169,000, or 75.8%, from the prior quarter. In the second quarter of 2019, new loan volume was higher compared to the prior quarter, and approximately $76,000 of nonrecurring loan development expenses were incurred with the new Covington loan production office.

Occupancy and equipment expenses for the second quarter of 2019 totaled $1.3 million, an increase of $159,000, or 13.5%, compared to the first quarter of 2019. This increase was due to completing a new market headquarters building in Baton Rouge which incurred approximately $130,000 of nonrecurring expenses in the second quarter and opening a temporary loan production office in Covington on April 3, 2019.

In conjunction with the redemption of the junior subordinated debentures in the second quarter, the Company incurred $12,000 of nonrecurring legal and professional expenses and $38,000 of nonrecurring other operating expenses.

Loans and Asset Quality

Loans HFI as of June 30, 2019, were $1.4 billion, an increase of $44.0 million, or 3.3%, from March 31, 2019. The increase in loans in the second quarter of 2019 was primarily due to normal loan origination activity spread across all of our markets, with our newer markets experiencing the most growth. Energy related credits were 2.5% of loans HFI as of June 30, 2019, compared to 2.6% as of March 31, 2019.

Nonperforming assets ("NPAs") totaled $13.2 million as of June 30, 2019 and $6.6 million as of March 31, 2019. The ratio of NPA's to total assets was 0.70% as of June 30, 2019. The increase in NPA's was due to a $5.9 million increase in loans past due 90 days relating primarily to secured commercial loans.

As of June 30, 2019, the allowance for loan losses ("ALLL") was $13.6 million and the ratio of ALLL to loans HFI was 0.98%. The net charge-off ratio was 0.00% for the first and second quarters of 2019. The provision for loan losses recorded in the second quarter of 2019 totaled $529,000 compared to $526,000 for the first quarter of 2019.

Deposits

Deposits as of June 30, 2019, were $1.63 billion, a decrease of $56.5 million, or 3.3%, compared to March 31, 2019. Average deposits for the second quarter of 2019 were $1.63 billion, a decrease of $9.9 million, or 0.6%, from the prior quarter.

Noninterest-bearing deposits totaled $576.9 million as of June 30, 2019, up $11.2 million, or 2.0%, from March 31, 2019. As of June 30, 2019, noninterest-bearing deposits were 35.3% of total deposits.

Interest-bearing deposits totaled $1.06 billion as of June 30, 2019, down $67.7 million, or 6.0%, compared to March 31, 2019. As expected, a large, temporary deposit received in the first quarter of 2019 was disbursed in the second quarter. Public entity transaction deposit balances had a net decrease of $17.5 million during the second quarter of 2019 due to the public entities' normal operations. Time deposits increased $2.8 million, or 0.8%, in the second quarter and totaled $337.6 million as of June 30, 2019.

Junior Subordinated Debentures

As planned, during the second quarter 2019, we redeemed $6.2 million of junior subordinated debentures, with an average rate at payoff of 5.21%, and terminated the associated business trusts. As of June 30, 2019, we have outstanding junior subordinated debentures of $5.2 million at a rate of 5.58%. We anticipate redeeming these remaining debentures in August 2019.

Stockholders’ Equity

Total stockholders’ equity increased to $237.9 million as of June 30, 2019, from $202.2 million as of March 31, 2019. The increase in stockholders’ equity during the second quarter of 2019 was due to $26.8 million of proceeds from the initial public offering, net of expenses and underwriting commissions, $5.5 million of net income, and $3.3 million of other comprehensive income.

Non-GAAP Disclosure

Our accounting and reporting policies conform to United States generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP") and the prevailing practices in the banking industry. Certain financial measures used by management to evaluate our operating performance are discussed as supplemental non-GAAP performance measures. In accordance with the Security and Exchange Commission's rules, we classify a financial measure as being a non-GAAP financial measure if that financial measure excludes or includes amounts, or is subject to adjustments that have the effect of excluding or including amounts, that are included or excluded, as the case may be, in the most directly comparable measure calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP as in effect from time to time in the U.S. Non-GAAP financial measures do not include operating and other statistical measures or ratios or statistical measures calculated using exclusively either financial measures calculated in accordance with GAAP, operating measures or other measures that are not non-GAAP financial measures, or both.

The non-GAAP financial measures that we discuss should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for the most directly comparable or other financial measures calculated in accordance with GAAP. Moreover, the manner in which we calculate the non-GAAP financial measures that are discussed may differ from that of other companies reporting measures with similar names. It is important to understand how such other banking organizations calculate and name their financial measures similar to the non-GAAP financial measures discussed by us when comparing such non-GAAP financial measures.

We provide these measures in addition to, not as a substitute for, net income and earnings per share, which are reported in adherence to GAAP. Management and the board of directors review tangible book value per share and tangible common equity to tangible assets as part of managing operating performance. We believe that these non-GAAP performance measures, while not substitutes for GAAP net income, earnings per share, and total expenses, are useful for both management and investors when evaluating underlying operating and financial performance and its available resources.

A reconciliation of non-GAAP financial measures to the comparable GAAP financial measures is included at the end of the financial statement tables.
