CEO Commentary

“We delivered another solid quarter and are extremely pleased with our 2022 results despite the challenging interest rate and economic environment,” said Customers Bancorp Chairman and CEO, Jay Sidhu. “Our Q4 2022 GAAP earnings were negatively impacted by after-tax securities net losses of $13.5 million, or $0.41 per diluted share, which will benefit net interest margin in the short-term and has an earn back of roughly one year as well as after-tax net losses on PPP loans of $6.0 million, or $0.18 per diluted share. However, we are very pleased to report that Q4 2022 earnings from the core bank* were $1.37 per diluted share, beating internal targets and estimates, and bringing full year 2022 core earnings (excluding PPP)* per share to $6.51. Our responsible organic growth strategy is laser focused on credit quality with 90% of our growth in low credit risk verticals. We have taken prudent risk management strategic actions over the past several quarters to ensure we are well positioned from a capital, credit, liquidity and earnings perspective especially as we head into a highly uncertain 2023. We are also pleased to report that we beat the upper end of our 2022 core earnings per share, excluding PPP* target of $4.75 – $5.00 by 13%, even before considering the Q3 2022 pre-tax provision release of $36.8 million. Core loan* growth in 2022 was led by increases in low-risk variable rate specialty lending verticals of $3.0 billion. Asset quality remains exceptional and credit reserves are extremely robust at 426% of total non-performing loans. Our loan and deposit pipelines remain strong and we are very focused on improving our margins, moderating our growth, controlling our expenses, actively buying back common shares to the extent we are trading below book value, and creating exceptional value for our shareholders. We remain very optimistic about our future,” Mr. Jay Sidhu continued.

Core earnings excluding PPP* for Q4 2022 were $45.3 million, or $1.37 per diluted share, calculated as shown below.

Paycheck Protection Program (PPP)

We funded, either directly or indirectly, about 358,000 loans totaling $10.3 billion. Through the program, we earned close to $350 million of deferred origination fees from the SBA, which was significantly accretive to our earnings and capital levels as these loans were forgiven by the government. In Q4 2022, we recognized only $4 million of these fees in earnings as forgiveness levels were slower than expected, bringing total fees recognized to date to $322 million, and $26 million remaining to be recognized in 2023. “As we’ve stated previously, it is difficult to predict the timing of PPP forgiveness. We expect most of the fees to be recognized over the next two quarters; however, because we fully paid off the FRB PPP liquidity facility in third quarter 2021, these loans are currently being funded with higher cost funding, reducing their short-term profitability. This was particularly evident in Q4 2022 as higher PPP-related expenses resulted in a total negative impact to Q4 2022 earnings of $0.18 per diluted share. This included negative net interest income of $2.8 million resulting from higher funding costs, $11.0 million of one-time charge-offs increasing provision expense, and a $7.5 million gain resulting from a legal settlement with one of our third party PPP service providers. These one-time charge-offs are before the impact of any contractual indemnities or recoveries we may receive in future periods,” commented Customers Bancorp CFO, Carla Leibold.

Commercial and industrial (“C&I”) loans and leases, including specialty lending, increased $3.2 billion, or 95.7% year-over-year, to $6.5 billion. Practically all of the increases in outstanding balances were in the low-risk variable rate secured categories of Capital Call Lines and Lender Finance (collectively referred to as Fund Finance). Multifamily loans increased $730.8 million, or 49.2%, to $2.2 billion, commercial real estate owner occupied loans increased $230.4 million, or 35.2%, to $885.3 million, commercial real estate non-owner occupied loans increased $169.5 million, or 15.1% to $1.3 billion and residential loans increased $147.8 million, or 42.1%, to $498.8 million year-over-year. These increases in loans and leases were partially offset by a decrease in total consumer installment loans of $43.1 million, or 2.5%, to $1.7 billion primarily due to the sale of $500.0 million of consumer installment loans in Q3 2022 offsetting new originations and originations and purchases of certain consumer installment loans with the intent to sell and a decrease in construction loans of $37.0 million, or 18.6%, to $162.0 million.

The increase in net charge-offs in Q4 2022 compared to Q3 2022 was primarily due to one-time charge-offs of $11.0 million for certain loans originated under the PPP program that were subsequently determined to be ineligible for SBA forgiveness and guarantee and were deemed uncollectible.

The provision for credit losses on loans and leases in Q4 2022 was $27.9 million, compared to a benefit to provision of $7.8 million in Q3 2022. The provision in Q4 2022 was primarily due to loan growth, one-time charge-offs of $11.0 million for certain loans originated under the PPP program that were subsequently determined to be ineligible for SBA forgiveness and guarantee and ultimately deemed uncollectible and our recognition of weaker macroeconomic forecasts, as compared to a benefit to provision in Q3 2022 primarily from the sale of $500.0 million of consumer installment loans in connection with the Company’s balance sheet optimization initiatives. The sale transaction resulted in approximately $36.8 million of release in allowance for credit losses in Q3 2022, which was included in core earnings* and contributed approximately $0.86 per diluted share. The provision for credit losses on available for sale investment securities in Q4 2022 was $0.3 million compared to a benefit to provision of $0.2 million in Q3 2022.

The provision for credit losses on loans and leases in Q4 2022 was $27.9 million, compared to a provision of $13.9 million in Q4 2021. The provision in Q4 2022 was primarily due to loan growth, one-time charge-offs of $11.0 million for certain loans originated under the PPP program that were subsequently determined to be ineligible for SBA forgiveness and guarantee and ultimately deemed uncollectible and our recognition of weaker macroeconomic forecasts. The provision for credit losses on available for sale investment securities in Q4 2022 was $0.3 million compared to no provision in Q4 2021.

Over the last decade, we have developed a suite of commercial loan products with one particularly important common denominator: relatively low credit risk assumption. The Bank’s C&I, loans to mortgage companies, corporate and specialty lending lines of business, and multifamily loans for example, are characterized by conservative underwriting standards and low loss rates. Because of this emphasis, the Bank’s credit quality to date has been incredibly healthy despite an adverse economic environment. Maintaining strong asset quality also requires a highly active portfolio monitoring process. In addition to frequent client outreach and monitoring at the individual loan level, we employ a bottom-up data driven approach to analyze the commercial portfolio. Exposure to industry segments and CRE significantly impacted by COVID-19 initially is not substantial.

Total consumer installment loans were approximately 8.1% of total assets at December 31, 2022, 10.8% of total loans and leases and 11.5% of core loans*, and were supported by an allowance for credit losses of $68.7 million. At December 31, 2022, our consumer installment portfolio had the following characteristics: average original FICO score of 740, average debt-to-income of 19.0% and average borrower income of $107 thousand.

Non-performing loans at December 31, 2022 were essentially flat at 0.19% of total loans and leases, compared to 0.18% at September 30, 2022 and 0.34% at December 31, 2021.

Total deposits increased $1.4 billion, or 8.2%, to $18.2 billion at December 31, 2022 as compared to a year ago. Time deposits increased $3.7 billion, or 737.7%, to $4.2 billion. This increase was offset partially by decreases in money market deposits of $1.6 billion, or 37.1%, to $2.7 billion, total demand deposits of $587.1 million, or 5.4%, to $10.4 billion and savings deposits of $161.5 million, or 16.6%, to $811.8 million. The total cost of deposits increased by 237 basis points to 2.73% in Q4 2022 from 0.36% in the prior year primarily due to higher market interest rates and a shift in deposit mix.
