Balance Sheet and Net Interest Margin

The Company reported loans HFI of $9.41 billion at the end of the fourth quarter of 2023 compared to $9.29 billion from the end of the prior quarter. As construction projects transitioned to permanent financing, construction loans declined by $135.0 million which contributed to multifamily and non-owner occupied commercial real estate balance increases of $102.5 million and $31.6 million, respectively. The net loan growth primarily resulted from increases in commercial and industrial of $52.9 million and owner-occupied commercial real estate of $25.7 million. The contractual yield on loans HFI increased to 6.43% for the fourth quarter of 2023 from 6.32% for the previous quarter.

The Company reported total deposits of $10.55 billion at the end of the fourth quarter of 2023 compared to $10.64 billion at the end of the third quarter. The Company's total cost of deposits increased to 2.65% during the fourth quarter from 2.58% for the third quarter of 2023, and the cost of interest-bearing deposits increased to 3.40% from 3.33% for the same periods. Noninterest-bearing deposits were $2.22 billion at the end of the quarter compared to $2.36 billion at the end of third quarter of 2023. The decrease includes a reduction in mortgage escrow deposits of $59.1 million.

The Company’s net interest income on a tax equivalent basis increased slightly for the fourth quarter of 2023 to $101.9 million compared to $101.8 million in the prior quarter. NIM expanded to 3.46% for the fourth quarter of 2023 from 3.42% for the previous quarter as the increase in contractual yield on loans HFI outpaced the increase in the cost of interest-bearing deposits from the third quarter to the fourth quarter.

Holmes continued, “We were able to expand net interest margin during the quarter with prudent loan growth while continuing to reduce the risk profile of the balance sheet. We are encouraged by the increases that we achieved in both net interest income and net interest margin. Our team is focused on expanding existing relationships and developing new relationships in order to grow customer deposits at a reasonable customer value proposition.”

Noninterest Income

Core noninterest income* was $18.7 million for the fourth quarter of 2023, compared to $22.1 million and $20.3 million for the third quarter of 2023 and fourth quarter of 2022, respectively. These amounts reflect adjustments of a $3.0 million loss for changes in fair value on commercial loans held for sale, a $492 thousand loss on sales or write-downs of other real estate owned and other assets and a $183 thousand gain from securities in the fourth quarter 2023 compared to a $7 thousand loss for changes in fair value on commercial loans held for sale, a $115 thousand gain on sales or write-downs of other real estate owned and other assets and a $14.2 million loss from securities in the previous quarter.

The Company completed the exit of the commercial loans held for sale portfolio acquired in the Franklin Financial Network transaction after exiting the final relationship during the fourth quarter, resulting in a charge of $3.0 million in the quarter and a net gain of $7.2 million over the life of this portfolio.

Mortgage banking income remains subdued in the higher interest rate environment as the Company recognized revenue of $8.4 million in the fourth quarter of 2023 compared with $12.0 million in the previous quarter and $9.1 million in the fourth quarter of 2022.

Expense Management

Core noninterest expense* during the fourth quarter of 2023 was $74.4 million compared to $78.2 million for the prior quarter and $80.2 million for the fourth quarter of 2022. These amounts reflect adjustments of $2.2 million for early retirement and severance costs, $1.8 million of loss on lease terminations and $1.8 million for the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation ("FDIC") special assessment recognized in the fourth quarter of 2023 compared to $4.8 million for early retirement and severance costs in the prior quarter. During the fourth quarter of 2023, the Company's core efficiency ratio* was 61.7%, compared to 63.1% in the previous quarter and 61.0% in the fourth quarter of 2022. Core banking noninterest expense* was $63.7 million for the quarter, compared to $66.2 million in the prior quarter.

Chief Financial Officer, Michael Mettee noted, “The Company continued to lower our expense run rate during the quarter. Expense discipline continues to be a management focus even as we look to efficiently scale our operational platform.”

Credit Quality

The Company recorded a provision expense of $3.1 million during the fourth quarter related to loans HFI; it also recorded a provision reversal of $2.8 million on unfunded loan commitments, resulting in a net provision expense of $0.3 million. Given the range of economic forecasts for the coming quarters, the Company continued managing its exposure in unfunded commitments in construction and land development lower, ending the year with $725.9 million of exposure, which is a reduction from the previous quarter of $196.4 million and a reduction for the year of $913.2 million. The Company had an allowance for credit losses on loans HFI as of the end of the fourth quarter of 2023 of $150.3 million, representing 1.60% of loans HFI compared to $146.1 million, or 1.57% of loans HFI as of September 30, 2023.

The Company experienced net recoveries of $1.1 million in the fourth quarter of 2023, representing annualized net recoveries of 0.04% of average loans HFI for the quarter compared to annualized net charge-offs of 0.02% in both the third quarter of 2023 and fourth quarter of 2022. For the year ended December 31, 2023, the Company experienced annualized net charge-offs of $0.6 million representing net charge-offs of 0.01% of average loans HFI, compared to annualized net charge-offs of 0.02% for the year ended December 31, 2022.

The Company's nonperforming loans HFI as a percentage of total loans HFI increased to 0.65% as of the end of the fourth quarter of 2023 compared to 0.59% at the previous quarter-end and 0.49% at the end of the fourth quarter of 2022. The increase was primarily due to two commercial and industrial relationships moving to nonaccrual. Nonperforming assets as a percentage of total assets decreased to 0.69% as of the end of the fourth quarter of 2023 compared to 0.71% at the end of the prior quarter and 0.68% as of the end of the fourth quarter of 2022.

Holmes commented, “The Company had net recoveries for the quarter, demonstrating our resolve to work with customers for positive outcomes. We also modestly increased our allowance for credit losses, remaining cautious on our economic outlook. However, our local economies have continued performing well, migration into our markets continues at a healthy pace, and we are cautiously optimistic as we look forward into the coming year.”

Capital Strength

Holmes continued, “We continue to build on our already strong capital position growing tangible common equity to tangible assets* to a solid 9.74% and Common Equity Tier 1 to 12.2%. Our capital levels provide flexibility as we enter 2024 in a position of strength.

Summary

Holmes finalized, “While 2023 was a challenging year for the banking industry, I am proud of our team's management of credit, capital and liquidity while also taking care of our customers. We have executed in a difficult operating environment and positioned the Company to capitalize on future opportunities.”

SUPPLEMENTAL FINANCIAL INFORMATION AND EARNINGS PRESENTATION

Investors are encouraged to review this Earnings Release in conjunction with the Fourth Quarter 2023 Financial Supplement and Earnings Presentation posted on the Company’s website, which can be found at https://investors.firstbankonline.com. This Earnings Release, the Fourth Quarter 2023 Financial Supplement and the Earnings Presentation are also included with a Current Report on Form 8-K that the Company furnished to the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) on January 16, 2024.

FORWARD-LOOKING STATEMENTS

Certain statements contained in this Earnings Release that are not historical in nature may be considered forward-looking statements within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. These forward-looking statements include, without limitation, statements regarding the Company’s future plans, results, strategies, and expectations, including expectations around changing economic markets. These statements can generally be identified by the use of the words and phrases “may,” “will,” “should,” “could,” “would,” “goal,” “plan,” “potential,” “estimate,” “project,” “believe,” “intend,” “anticipate,” “expect,” “target,” “aim,” “predict,” “continue,” “seek,” and other variations of such words and phrases and similar expressions. These forward-looking statements are not historical facts, and are based upon management's current expectations, estimates, and projections, many of which, by their nature, are inherently uncertain and beyond the Company’s control. The inclusion of these forward-looking statements should not be regarded as a representation by the Company or any other person that such expectations, estimates, and projections will be achieved. Accordingly, the Company cautions shareholders and investors that any such forward-looking statements are not guarantees of future performance and are subject to risks, assumptions, and uncertainties that are difficult to predict. Actual results may prove to be materially different from the results expressed or implied by the forward-looking statements. A number of factors could cause actual results to differ materially from those contemplated by the forward-looking statements including, without limitation, (1) current and future economic conditions, including the effects of inflation, interest rate fluctuations, changes in the economy or global supply chain, supply-demand imbalances affecting local real estate prices, and high unemployment rates in the local or regional economies in which the Company operates and/or the US economy generally, (2) changes in government interest rate policies and its impact on the Company’s business, net interest margin, and mortgage operations, (3) any continuation of the recent turmoil in the banking industry, including the associated impact to the Company and other financial institutions of any regulatory changes or other mitigation efforts taken by government agencies in response, (4) increased competition for deposits, (5) the Company’s ability to effectively manage problem credits, (6) any deterioration in commercial real estate market fundamentals, (7) the Company’s ability to identify potential candidates for, consummate, and achieve synergies from, potential future acquisitions, (8) the Company’s ability to successfully execute its various business strategies, (9) changes in state and federal legislation, regulations or policies applicable to banks and other financial service providers, including legislative developments, (10) the effectiveness of the Company’s cybersecurity controls and procedures to prevent and mitigate attempted intrusions, (11) the Company's dependence on information technology systems of third party service providers and the risk of systems failures, interruptions, or breaches of security, and (12) the impact of natural disasters, pandemics, and/or acts of war or terrorism, (13) events giving rise to international or regional political instability, including the broader impacts of such events on financial markets and/or global macroeconomic environments, and (14) general competitive, economic, political, and market conditions. Further information regarding the Company and factors which could affect the forward-looking statements contained herein can be found in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2022, and in any of the Company’s subsequent filings with the SEC. Many of these factors are beyond the Company’s ability to control or predict. If one or more events related to these or other risks or uncertainties materialize, or if the underlying assumptions prove to be incorrect, actual results may differ materially from the forward-looking statements. Accordingly, shareholders and investors should not place undue reliance on any such forward-looking statements. Any forward-looking statement speaks only as of the date of this Earnings Release, and the Company undertakes no obligation to publicly update or review any forward-looking statement, whether as a result of new information, future developments or otherwise, except as required by law. New risks and uncertainties may emerge from time to time, and it is not possible for the Company to predict their occurrence or how they will affect the Company.

The Company qualifies all forward-looking statements by these cautionary statements.

GAAP RECONCILIATION AND USE OF NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES

This Earnings Release contains certain financial measures that are not measures recognized under U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”) and therefore are considered non-GAAP financial measures. These non-GAAP financial measures may include, without limitation, adjusted net income, adjusted diluted earnings per common share, adjusted and unadjusted pre-tax pre-provision earnings, core revenue, core noninterest expense and core noninterest income, core efficiency ratio (tax equivalent basis), and adjusted return on average assets and equity. Each of these non-GAAP metrics excludes certain income and expense items that the Company’s management considers to be non-core/adjusted in nature. The Company refers to these non-GAAP measures as adjusted (or core) measures. Also, the Company presents tangible assets, tangible common equity, tangible book value per common share, tangible common equity to tangible assets, return on average tangible common equity, and adjusted return on average tangible common equity. Each of these non-GAAP metrics excludes the impact of goodwill and other intangibles.

The Company’s management uses these non-GAAP financial measures in their analysis of the Company’s performance, financial condition and the efficiency of its operations as management believes such measures facilitate period-to-period comparisons and provide meaningful indications of its operating performance as they eliminate both gains and charges that management views as non-recurring or not indicative of operating performance. Management believes that these non-GAAP financial measures provide a greater understanding of ongoing operations and enhance comparability of results with prior periods as well as demonstrate the effects of significant non-core gains and charges in the current and prior periods. The Company’s management also believes that investors find these non-GAAP financial measures useful as they assist investors in understanding the Company’s underlying operating performance and in the analysis of ongoing operating trends. In addition, because intangible assets such as goodwill and the other items excluded each vary extensively from company to company, the Company believes that the presentation of this information allows investors to more easily compare the Company’s results to the results of other companies. However, the non-GAAP financial measures discussed herein 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 the Company calculates the non-GAAP financial measures discussed herein may differ from that of other companies reporting measures with similar names. Investors should understand how such other banking organizations calculate their financial measures with names similar to the non-GAAP financial measures the Company has discussed herein when comparing such non-GAAP financial measures.

A reconciliation of these measures to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures is included in the Company's Fourth Quarter 2023 Financial Supplement, which is available at https://investors.firstbankonline.com.
