Bank Announces Earnings for Quarter Ended March 31, 2023

The Bank announced unaudited earnings for the first quarter ended March 31, 2023. 

Net income for the quarter was $8.9 million, an increase of 65% from $5.4 million over the prior year and down 11% from $10.0 million in the prior quarter. Basic and diluted earnings per share in the first quarter of 2023 both improved over the same quarter in 2022 by $0.42. Basic and diluted earnings per share decreased over the prior quarter by $0.13.

Santa Cruz County Bank President and CEO Krista Snelling commented, “As a community bank, we make a positive impact on the communities we serve. The Bank’s liquidity position remains strong, and the funds entrusted to us by depositors are reinvested through loans to individuals and businesses for expansion and enterprise growth. We reported a milestone in gross loans for the quarter, which grew by $51 million and by $176 million over the prior year, while maintaining strong credit quality. The Bank’s overall decrease in deposits of 4% compared to last year-end largely reflected our large depositors’ business cycle for their planned activities.

During the quarter, we announced our rank as the #6 best performing community bank in the nation for banks under $3 billion in asset size by S&P Global Market Intelligence. This achievement marks our 6th year in the Top 100 Banks in the nation and is credit to the diligence of our entire team on the oversight and execution of our strong financial performance.”

Financial Highlights

Performance highlights as of and for the quarter ended March 31, 2022 included the following:

  • Quarterly net income of $8.9 million increased 65% from $5.4 million in the first quarter ended March 31, 2022, and down 11% from $10.0 million in the prior quarter.
  • Our liquidity position remains healthy, as our primary liquidity ratio (cash and equivalents, deposits held in other banks and unpledged available-for-sale (“AFS”) securities as a percentage of total assets) was 16.1% at March 31, 2023, compared to 19.6% at December 31, 2022.
  • Total assets of $1.73 billion as of March 31, 2023, an increase of $4.2 million or 0.25%, compared to $1.72 billion as of March 31, 2022, and a decrease of $17.1 million or 1% compared to $1.74 billion as of December 31, 2022.
  • Record gross loans (excluding PPP) of $1.3 billion, an increase of $176.3 million or 15%, compared to March 31, 2022, and an increase of $51.1 million or 4%, compared to December 31, 2022. The Bank continues to capitalize on lending opportunities in the core Santa Cruz market with a strong mix of loans serving our business community and the development of housing, including a $24 million multifamily loan.
  • Credit quality remains solid. Nonaccrual loans totaled $2.6 million, or 0.20% of gross loans, as of March 31, 2023, compared to $3.2 million, or 0.25% of total loans as of year-end 2022. The decrease during the first quarter is primarily due to the sale of a delinquent home equity line of credit of $800,000 without experiencing a loss.
  • Deposits totaled $1.46 billion at March 31, 2023, a decrease of $61.7 million or 4%, compared to March 31, 2022, and a decrease of $68.9 million or 4%, compared to December 31, 2022. The overall banking industry experienced elevated net deposit outflows surrounding the announcements of the Silicon Valley Bank and Signature Bank closures in mid-March. Total uninsured deposits, excluding collateralized deposits, represent approximately 43% of total deposits at March 31, 2023, compared to 48% at year-end.
  • Current Expected Credit Loss (“CECL”) methodology was adopted January 1, 2023 and as a result, retained earnings was negatively impacted by $3.3 million upon adoption. Allowance for Credit Losses increased by $4.1 million under CECL, which is based on estimating loss for the life of the loans in the portfolio. In addition, allowance on unfunded credit commitments, presented as part of other liabilities, increased $530 thousand due to the CECL adoption. Loans previously acquired through acquisition with unamortized purchased discount are now included in the calculation of the CECL reserve requirement. Acquired loans that were not impaired at January 1, 2023 totaled $107.2 million and contributed $2.0 million of the increase to the Allowance for Credit Losses at the date of adoption.
  • Provision for credit losses was $315 thousand for the first quarter of 2023 compared to $642 thousand for the trailing quarter and $645 thousand for the same period in 2022. The provision was driven by growth in the portfolio and partially offset by slight reductions in loss factors due to the shortening of average life of loans used in the CECL methodology in a slightly lower interest rate environment at March 31, 2023 compared to January 1, 2023.
  • Net interest margin was 5.08%, compared to 4.83% in the trailing quarter and 3.76% for the corresponding quarter in 2022. The Bank’s large proportion of adjustable rate loans benefited from the rising prime index rate.
  • For the quarters ended March 31, 2023 and December 31, 2022, return on average assets was 2.08% and 2.22%, respectively, and the return on average tangible equity was 20.90% and 24.04%, respectively.
  • The efficiency ratio was 39.78% for the first quarter of 2023, as compared to 31.75% in the trailing quarter and 47.98% in the same quarter of 2022.
  • All capital ratios were above regulatory requirements for a well-capitalized institution with a total risk-based capital ratio of 14.71% at March 31, 2023, compared to 14.94% at December 31, 2022. The capital ratio decreased 24 basis points upon the adoption of the CECL on January 1, 2023. The Bank did not opt in for the 3-year phase-in CECL transition adjustment to regulatory capital due to the Bank’s strong capital position.
  • Book value per share after cash dividends increased to $24.19 at March 31, 2023, compared to $23.32 at December 31, 2022 and $21.42 at March 31, 2022.

Letter from our President and CEO

To our Valued Clients, Community and Shareholders:

We want to take a moment to reinforce the safety and soundness of Santa Cruz County Bank in light of recent industry events, particularly the failure of Silicon Valley Bank (SVB). SVB’s failure was primarily due to their heavy concentration in banking high-tech, venture-based companies, combined with significant unrealized losses in their securities portfolio caused by rapidly rising interest rates.

Our business model is fundamentally different.

Our client base is diverse and stable.  We do not have any significant industry concentrations nor concentrations with individual clients.

Our capital position significantly exceeds the regulatory levels for being considered “well-capitalized” and any changes to our securities portfolio would not have a material impact on our capital.

Our liquidity position is very strong and includes $320 million in liquid marketable securities and $461 million in unused borrowing capacity at the Federal Home Loan Bank, Federal Reserve Bank and other correspondent banks.

Santa Cruz County Bank’s historical financial performance ratings and earnings releases are publicly available through our website: Investor Relations.

As a community bank, we take pride in our relationship-based business model focused on building long-term trust with our clients. We look forward to continuing to serve our community through our traditional community banking model as we have for the past 19 years.

We are grateful for your business and support.

Krista Snelling, President and CEO

Santa Cruz County Bank's Safety and Soundness

Safety and soundness are paramount for any banking relationship, especially in challenging economic times. Santa Cruz County Bank’s capital position far exceeds the regulatory guidelines to be considered “well capitalized” as shown in the tables linked here. As of December 31, 2022, the Bank’s 14.94% in total capital to risk weighted assets well surpasses 10.50%, which is considered adequate and is required by the FDIC.

Our strong capital position ensures that the funds you deposit with us are safe. Further, your deposits at Santa Cruz County Bank are reinvested in the communities we serve, deployed through loans to individuals and businesses. During the pandemic, the Bank helped save 50,000 local and regional jobs through the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP).

In addition to being well capitalized, Santa Cruz County Bank continues to rank at the top of performance standards and has been recognized annually for its financial performance. Read more about our Financial Strength

  • Total assets of $1.74 billion as of December 31, 2022, a decrease of $117.4 million or 6% compared to $1.86 billion as of September 30, 2022, and an increase of $43.2 million or 3%, compared to $1.70 billion as of  December 31, 2021.

The Bank’s outstanding performance is the result of the ongoing discipline and focus of our team of dedicated employees, management team, and directors, who work daily to align operations to achieve strategic goals.

These results reflect the impact of the higher rate environment on earning assets and our focus on the implementation of cost-saving, digital transformation solutions designed to minimize resources while enhancing the client experience. 

For the quarter, gross loans (excluding PPP) were up by $40.5 million. New loan originations surpassed $101.4 million and were offset by over $62.1 million in non-PPP payoffs, primarily in construction loans, as expected, due to the easing of supply chain constraints which has allowed for the completion of backlogged projects.

We are pleased to report new production by the Bank’s new Asset-Based Lending Division within our record quarterly non-PPP gross loan totals for the first time. We enter the fourth quarter looking forward to celebrating the opening of our new Salinas branch and welcoming the community to our 8th full-service banking office.”

Bank Announces $5 Million Share Repurchase Program

We are pleased to announce the launch of a $5 million Share Repurchase Program. The Bank’s Board of Directors authorized the Share Repurchase Program and received the required approvals from the California Department of Financial Protection and Innovation as well as the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation.

This is the first share buyback program in the history of the Bank. In March 2022, the Bank completed a previously announced 2-for-1 stock split.

 “Since our founding, we have continuously aligned the Bank’s strategic initiatives with increasing shareholder value,” stated Chairman William J. Hansen. “The Board’s authorization of this Program is based upon the strength of our balance sheet, our financial performance and continued growth. This Program further demonstrates our commitment to enhancing the value for all stockholders investing in Santa Cruz County Bank.”

The Board’s authorization for the Program permits the repurchase of up to $5 million of Santa Cruz County Bank common shares in open market and privately-negotiated transactions. Additionally, the Bank entered into contract with Janney Montgomery Scott LLC, a nationally recognized broker dealer, to facilitate repurchases. The Bank intends that all share repurchases will be made in compliance with the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 under rules 10b-18 and 10b5-1. The Stock Repurchase Program, which will expire on May 20, 2023, may be suspended, terminated, or modified at any time without notice. Shares purchased under the program will reduce the number of shares outstanding and will be returned to authorized but unissued status.

The timing and amount of common stock repurchases made pursuant to the Santa Cruz County Bank Share Repurchase Program are subject to various factors, including the Bank’s capital position, liquidity, financial performance, alternative uses of capital, stock trading price, regulatory requirements and general market conditions. The repurchase program does not obligate the Bank to acquire any particular number of shares, and the repurchase program may be suspended or discontinued at any time at the Bank’s discretion.
