Net income for the year ended December 31, 2023 totaled $42.5 million, or $2.24 diluted earnings per share, compared to net income of $64.3 million, or $3.33 diluted earnings per share, for the year ended December 31, 2022.

“We undertook several initiatives in 2023 to position the Company for the future,” said David Morris, CEO of RBB Bancorp. “We strengthened our management team by adding respected senior executives and restructured our operations in order to improve the management of our national banking franchise. We addressed regulatory concerns by adopting enhanced corporate governance policies and reconstituting our Board of Directors. Additionally, we increased liquidity and mitigated balance sheet risk by strategically exiting certain higher risk lending relationships and reducing our loan to deposit ratio.”

Mr. Morris continued, “While some of these actions had a negative impact on our short-term results, we are confident that they will drive long-term shareholder value and have positioned the Company for improved profitability in a variety of economic environments.”

“The changes implemented by management and the Board of Directors are intended to enhance shareholder value,” said Dr. James Kao, Chairman of the Company. “The Board of Directors appreciates the efforts of all RBB employees and their commitment to providing exceptional financial services to the Asian-American community.”

Reconciliations of the non–U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”) measures included at the end of this press release.

Net Interest Income and Net Interest Margin

Net interest income was $25.7 million for the fourth quarter of 2023, compared to $27.6 million for the third quarter of 2023. The $1.9 million decrease in net interest income was primarily due to higher interest expense of $1.2 million and lower interest income of $731,000. The increase in interest expense was due to an increase in the average rate paid on interest-bearing liabilities, offset by lower average balances of interest-bearing liabilities. The decrease in interest income was due to lower average balances of loans and securities, offset by higher average balances for Federal funds sold, cash equivalents & other and a higher yield on this earning asset category.

Net interest margin was 2.73% for the fourth quarter of 2023, a decrease of 14 basis points from 2.87% in the third quarter of 2023 primarily due to a 20 basis point increase in the average rate paid on interest-bearing liabilities, partially offset by a 4 basis point increase in the average yield earned on interest-earning assets. The higher overall funding costs were due mostly to a 25 basis point increase in the average cost of interest-bearing deposits to 4.08% in the fourth quarter of 2023 from 3.83% in the third quarter of 2023. The cost of interest-bearing deposits increased due to increasing market rates and peer bank deposit competition.

The Company redeemed all $55.0 million of its outstanding 6.18% fixed-to-floating rate subordinated notes on December 1, 2023 at par. The subordinated notes had an original maturity date of December 1, 2028 and an effective interest rate of 6.18% as of their redemption date.

Provision for Credit Losses

The Company recorded a reversal of its provision for credit losses of $431,000 for the fourth quarter of 2023 compared to a $1.4 million provision in the third quarter. The $1.8 million decrease in the provision for credit losses was primarily due to lower net charge-offs in the fourth quarter compared to the third quarter and the impact of improved credit quality coupled with lower total loans at the end of the fourth quarter. Total net charge-offs were $109,000 for the fourth quarter of 2023 compared to net charge-offs of $2.2 million in the prior quarter.

Noninterest Income

Noninterest income was $7.4 million for the fourth quarter of 2023, an increase of $4.6 million from $2.8 million in the third quarter of 2023. The increase was primarily driven by $5.0 million of income recognized from the CDFI ERP award, partially offset by lower net gains on the sale of other real estate owned of $247,000 and loans of $96,000.

Noninterest Expense

Noninterest expense for the fourth quarter of 2023 was $16.4 million, compared to $16.9 million for the third quarter of 2023. The $483,000 decrease was primarily due to lower salaries and employee benefits expenses of $884,000 related to lower taxes and incentives expense, partially offset by higher insurance and regulatory assessments of $392,000 due to the timing of such assessment notifications, and higher legal and other professional fees of $269,000. The annualized operating expense ratio for the fourth quarter of 2023 was 1.63%, down from 1.65% for the third quarter of 2023.

Income Taxes

The effective tax rate was 29.4% for the fourth quarter of 2023, and 29.9% for the third quarter of 2023.

Balance Sheet

At December 31, 2023, total assets were $4.03 billion, a $43.3 million decrease compared to September 30, 2023, and a $107.0 million increase compared to December 31, 2022.

Loan and Securities Portfolio

Loans held for investment, net of deferred fees and discounts, totaled $3.0 billion as of December 31, 2023, a decrease of $89.1 million from September 30, 2023. The decrease from September 30, 2023 was primarily due to a $78.3 million decrease in construction and land development loans, a $17.5 million decrease in single-family residential mortgages, and a $1.0 million decrease in other loans, partially offset by a $3.6 million increase in commercial real estate loans, a $2.4 million increase in commercial and industrial loans, and a $1.7 million increase in Small Business Administration (“SBA”) loans. During 2023, management strategically decreased loans and strengthened the Company's liquidity position which also resulted in a lower loan to deposit ratio. The loan to deposit ratio ended 2023 at 94.2% compared to 97.6% at September 30, 2023 and 110.7% at December 31, 2022.

As of December 31, 2023, available-for-sale securities totaled $319.0 million, including $271.0 million of available-for-sale securities maturing in over 12 months. As of December 31, 2023, gross unrealized losses totaled $28.1 million on available-for-sale securities, a $9.0 million decrease due to changes in market interest rates, compared to gross unrealized losses of $37.1 million as of September 30, 2023.

Liquidity and Deposits

Total deposits were $3.2 billion as of December 31, 2023, a $20.7 million, or 0.7%, increase compared to September 30, 2023. This increase was due to a $53.5 million increase in interest-bearing deposits and a $32.8 million decrease in noninterest-bearing demand deposits. The increase in interest-bearing deposits included higher non-maturity deposits of $24.7 million and higher time deposits of $28.8 million. The increase in time deposits, included a $20.4 million decrease in wholesale deposits (brokered deposits and collateralized State of California CD's), which totaled $338.1 million at December 31, 2023, and $358.5 million at September 30, 2023.

As of December 31, 2023, the Company had $431.4 million in cash and due from banks, an increase of $100.6 million, or 30.4%, compared to September 30, 2023. In addition to this cash liquidity, the Company had secondary sources of liquidity that totaled $1.2 billion at December 31, 2023. As of December 31, 2023, the Company's cash balances and secondary sources of liquidity represented 123% of total uninsured deposits.

Credit Quality

Nonperforming assets totaled $31.6 million, or 0.79% of total assets, at December 31, 2023, compared to $40.4 million, or 0.99% of total assets, at September 30, 2023. The $8.8 million decrease in nonperforming assets was due to the payoff of a $9.8 million non-accrual loan, the sale of one other real estate owned property that had a carrying value of $284,000, and non-accrual loan charge-offs of $150,000. These decreases were partially offset by loans placed on non-accrual status of $1.8 million, consisting primarily of single-family residential mortgages.

Special mention loans totaled $32.8 million, or 1.08% of total loans, at December 31, 2023, compared to $31.2 million, or 1.00% of total loans, at September 30, 2023. The increase was due to additional special mention loans of $4.4 million, consisting primarily of commercial and industrial loans, partially offset by loan paydowns of $2.7 million.

Substandard loans totaled $61.1 million, or 2.01% of total loans, at December 31, 2023, compared to $71.4 million, or 2.29% of total loans, at September 30, 2023. The $10.3 million decrease was due to loan paydowns of $11.0 million and upgrades to pass loans of $1.5 million, partially offset by additional substandard loans of $2.2 million, consisting primarily of single-family residential mortgages.

30-89 day delinquent loans, excluding non-accrual loans, decreased $2.9 million to $16.8 million as of December 31, 2023 compared to $19.7 million as of September 30, 2023. The decrease in past due loans was due to $17.1 million in loans that migrated back to past due for less than 30 days, consisting primarily of commercial real estate loans, $918,000 in loans that converted to non-accrual status, and $218,000 in loan payoffs or paydowns, partially offset by $15.5 million in new delinquent loans.

As of December 31, 2023, the allowance for credit losses totaled $42.5 million and was comprised of an allowance for loan losses of $41.9 million and a reserve for unfunded commitments of $640,000. This compares to the allowance for credit losses of $43.1 million comprised of an allowance for loan losses of $42.4 million and a reserve for unfunded commitments of $654,000 at September 30, 2023. The $540,000 decrease in the allowance for credit losses during the fourth quarter of 2023 was due to net charge-offs of $109,000 and a negative provision for credit losses of $431,000. The allowance for loan losses as a percentage of loans held for investment was 1.38% at December 31, 2023, compared to 1.36% at September 30, 2023. The allowance for loan losses as a percentage of nonperforming loans was 133% at December 31, 2023, an increase from 106% at September 30, 2023.

Shareholders' Equity and Capital Actions

At December 31, 2023, total shareholders' equity was $511.3 million, an $8.7 million increase compared to September 30, 2023, and a $26.7 million increase compared to December 31, 2022. The increase in shareholders' equity for the fourth quarter was due to net earnings of $12.1 million, lower net unrealized losses of $6.2 million, offset by dividends paid of $3.0 million and share repurchases totaling $6.7 million. As a result, book value per share increased to $27.47 from $26.45 and tangible book value per share increased to $23.48 from $22.53.

On January 18, 2024, the Company announced the Board of Directors had declared a common stock cash dividend of $0.16 per share, payable on February 9, 2024 to shareholders of record on January 31, 2024.

The Company repurchased 396,374 shares at a weighted average share price of $17.02 during the fourth quarter of 2023.

Corporate Governance and Regulatory Updates

The Company is providing the following update on various corporate governance and regulatory matters previously reported:

  • Since May 2022, the Boards of Directors of the Company and the Bank have taken several actions to enhance the Company’s corporate governance and oversight:
    • In late 2022 and early 2023, the Company’s Board of Directors adopted new corporate governance policies and standards which include enhanced director independence standards, an independent Board chair, updated board committee charters and an amended and restated code of ethics.
    • Since May 2022, 6 new directors have been added to the Boards of Directors of the Company and the Bank. These new directors have extensive regulatory, executive leadership, wealth management, risk management, and community banking experience. Nine out of the ten (10) current directors of the Company are classified as ‘independent directors’.
    • During 2023, the Boards of Directors of the Company and the Bank took certain actions to strengthen the Company’s management team, including hiring a President / Chief Banking Officer, Chief Financial Officer, Chief Administrative Officer, SBA Manager, Deputy Chief Risk Officer/BSA Officer, and an East Coast head of branch banking.
  • The Bank entered into a Consent Order (the “Consent Order”) with the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (the “FDIC”) and the California Department of Financial Protection and Innovation (the “DFPI”) on October 25, 2023. The Consent Order requires the Bank to take certain actions with respect to its Anti-Money Laundering/Countering the Financing of Terrorism (“AML/CFT”) compliance program and to correct certain alleged violations of the Bank Secrecy Act (“BSA”) program. The Bank was proactive in addressing the items identified in the Consent Order prior to entering into the Consent Order, taking the actions described in its Current Report on Form 8-K filed with the SEC on October 31, 2023. As of December 31, 2023, the Bank believes it has addressed all of the deficiencies identified in the Consent Order, although there can be no guarantee that additional measures will not be required until the FDIC and the DFPI have reexamined and retested the Bank’s AML/CFT policies and procedures to the FDIC’s and the DFPI’s satisfaction, the timing of which is uncertain.
  • As reported in connection with the Company’s second quarter 2023 earnings release, the Company was voluntarily responding to informal requests from the SEC's Division of Enforcement for information regarding, among other things, certain Company policies and procedures, certain Company expenditures, certain former officers and directors, their roles and relationships, and the circumstances relating to and surrounding their departures, including potential violations of laws and/or regulations. The SEC subsequently notified the Company that the SEC has concluded its inquiry with respect to the Company without any enforcement action against the Company.

The Company’s Board of Directors remains committed to continuing to evaluate and, where necessary or appropriate, further enhancing the Company’s corporate governance and oversight to ensure the Company’s governance structure aligns with its business operations and corporate strategy, as well as regulatory and investor expectations.
