FRESNO, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- United Security Bancshares (Nasdaq: UBFO) today announced its unaudited financial results for the year ended December 31, 2020.

Fourth Quarter 2020 Highlights (at or for the quarter ended December 31, 2020, except where noted)

  • Net income for the quarter was $1.922 million, or $0.11 per basic and diluted shares, representing a $973 thousand or 33.61% decrease from $2.895 million, or $0.17 per basic and diluted shares, for the quarter ended December 31, 2019. The decrease is primarily the result of a reduction in interest income related to a lower interest rate environment and higher provision expense for the fourth quarter 2020.
  • Total assets increased $135.7 million to $1.1 billion, compared to $956.9 million at December 31, 2019 with increases of $58.0 million in gross loan balances, $75.1 million in cash equivalents, and $6.1 million in investment securities.

The provision for credit losses totaled $631 thousand for the quarter, compared to $5 thousand for the quarter ended December 31, 2019. The increase in the provision for credit losses during the quarter ended December 31, 2020 was primarily the result of $826 thousand in charge-offs recognized in the student loan portfolio.

Dennis Woods, President and Chief Executive Officer, stated: "Our 2020 operating results were significantly impacted by the economic impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. These factors resulted in elevated credit loss provisions, deterioration in net interest margin due to a lower interest rate environment, and a reduction in customer service fee income as we waived many overdraft and ATM fees to provide relief to our customers. Despite the negative impacts of the pandemic, we achieved strong balance sheet growth in our loan portfolio, reduced nonperforming assets, opened a new branch, and grew deposit balances. Our unfunded loan commitments grew $27.4 million during 2020, providing a solid foundation heading into 2021 as we navigate through the pandemic and into economic recovery. In 2021, we will continue to focus on the safety of our employees amid the pandemic, and delivering high quality products and services to our customers, while strategically managing our business to optimize profitability in this challenging environment. Our 2021 plan is centered on repositioning our balance sheet for the current environment, while maintaining strong liquidity and capital levels."

Results of Operations

Net income for the year ended December 31, 2020 decreased $6,211,000 when compared to the year ended December 31, 2019. This decrease was due to a reduction in interest income, a result of a decrease in yields, and the increased provision for credit losses recorded during the current year. ROAE for the year ended December 31, 2020 was 7.55%, compared to 13.30% for the year ended December 31, 2019. ROAA was 0.86% for the year ended December 31, 2020, compared to 1.58% for the year ended December 31, 2019.

The annualized average cost of deposits was 0.22% for the year ended December 31, 2020, a decrease from 0.42% for the year ended December 31, 2019. The decrease in the cost of deposits is primarily attributed to reductions on deposit rates made in the first quarter of 2020. Average interest-bearing deposits increased 3.70% between the years ended December 31, 2019 and 2020 from $516,698,000 to $535,818,000.

Net interest income after the provision for credit losses for the year ended December 31, 2020 totaled $28,853,000, a decrease of $7,941,000, or 21.58%, from $36,794,000 for the same period ended December 31, 2019. Net interest income after the provision for credit losses includes a provision for credit losses of $2,769,000 for the year ended December 31, 2020, compared to a provision of $20,000 for the year ended December 31, 2019. During the first quarter of 2020, the Federal Reserve cut its benchmark rate by 1.50%. As a result, the Prime rate decreased from 4.75% to 3.25%. A majority of the Company's floating rate loans and investments are indexed to the Prime rate. The Company's net interest margin decreased from 4.22% for the year ended December 31, 2019 to 3.34% for the year ended December 31, 2020. The decrease was the result of decreases in yields on overnight fed funds, loans, and investment securities, partially offset by a decrease in interest expense. The yield on loans decreased from 5.91% for the year ended December 31, 2019 to 4.96% for the year ended December 31, 2020. The yield on interest bearing liabilities decreased from 0.74% for the year ended December 31, 2019 to 0.42% for the year ended December 31, 2020.

Net interest income after the provision for credit losses was $7,366,000 for the quarter ended December 31, 2020, representing a $1,325,000, or 15.25%, decrease compared to the same period ended December 31, 2019. The Company's net interest margin decreased from 4.02% to 3.15% between the quarters ended December 31, 2019 and December 31, 2020. The reduction in net interest margin is driven by the reduction in yields on all interest earning assets, partially offset by a decrease in interest expense on deposits. Included in interest income for the quarter ended December 31, 2020 is $517,000 in loan fee income related to SBA PPP loans.

Noninterest income for the year ended December 31, 2020 totaled $5,174,000, reflecting a decrease of $580,000 from the $5,754,000 in non-interest income reported for the year ended December 31, 2019. Customer service fees totaled $2,663,000 and $3,257,000 for the year ended December 31, 2020 and 2019, respectively. The decrease in customer service fees is attributed to lower fees and surcharges related to insufficient funds and electronic transfers recognized during the year. On a year-over-year comparative basis, non-interest income recorded a decrease of $195,000 in the loss on the fair value of junior subordinated debentures (TRUPs). A gain of $970,000 was realized for the year ended December 31, 2020, compared to a gain of $1,165,000 for the same period ended December 31, 2019. The change in the fair value of TRUPs reflected in noninterest income was caused by fluctuations in the LIBOR yield curve. Noninterest income for the year ended December 31, 2020 includes a $310,000 gain in proceeds from bank-owned life insurance.

Noninterest income for the quarter ended December 31, 2020 totaled $467,000, reflecting a decrease of $180,000 from the $647,000 in non-interest income reported for the quarter ended December 31, 2019. The decrease is attributed to a $130,000 decrease in customer service fees and a $74,000 increase in the loss on fair value of TRUPs. The change in the fair value of TRUPs reflected in noninterest income was caused by fluctuations in the LIBOR yield curve. The decrease in customer service fees is primarily the result of lower fees and surcharges related to insufficient funds and electronic transfers.

For the year ended December 31, 2020, noninterest expense totaled $21,615,000, an increase of $336,000 compared to $21,279,000 for the year ended December 31, 2019. On a year-over-year comparative basis, non-interest expense increased primarily due to a $728,000 increase in expenses related to other real estate owned. The increase in OREO expense was partially due to a write-down of $727,000 on one property and a $113,000 loss on sale of another property. This was partially offset by decreases of $508,000 in professional fees and decreases of $284,000 in salaries and employee benefits. The decrease in professional fees is attributed to a reduction in legal and consulting expense.

Noninterest expense for the quarter ended December 31, 2020 totaled $5,260,000, a decrease of $75,000 as compared to $5,335,000 reported for the quarter ended December 31, 2019. On a quarter-over-quarter comparative basis, non-interest expense decreased due to a $107,000 decrease in salaries and employee benefits expense, a $74,000 decrease in data processing expenses, and a $66,000 decrease in professional fees, partially offset by an increase of $150,000 in regulatory assessments. The increase in regulatory assessments during the 4th quarter 2020 was due an increase in the FDIC assessment rate.

The efficiency ratio for the year ended December 31, 2020 increased to 58.74%, compared to 49.99% for the year ended December 31, 2019. The increase is mainly attributed to a reduction in net interest income as a result of the balance sheet repricing in a lower rate environment, a decrease in customer service fees, and an increase in OREO expense.

The Company recorded an income tax provision of $3,451,000 for the year ended December 31, 2020, compared to $6,097,000 for the same period in 2019. The effective tax rate for the year ended December 31, 2020 was 27.80%, compared to 28.67% for the year ended December 31, 2019. The Company recorded an income tax provision of $651,000 for the quarter ended December 31, 2020, compared to $1,108,000 for the same period in 2019. The effective tax rate for the quarter ended December 31, 2020 was 25.30%, compared to 27.68% for the same period ended December 31, 2019.

Provided at the end of this Press Release is a reconciliation of Core Net Income, as a non-GAAP measure, to Net Income. This reconciliation excludes Non-Core items such as the Fair Value Adjustment for TRUPs and gain or loss on sale of other real estate owned (OREO). Management believes that financial results are more comparative excluding the impact of such non-core items.

Balance Sheet Review

Total assets increased $135,735,000, or 14.18%, between December 31, 2020 and December 31, 2019, due partially to increases of $58,037,000 in gross loan balances and $6,104,000 in investment securities. Total cash and cash equivalents increased $75,074,000 between December 31, 2019 and December 31, 2020. Unfunded loan commitments increased from $197,559,000 at December 31, 2019 to $224,972,000 at December 31, 2020. OREO balances decreased from $6,753,000 at December 31, 2019 to $5,004,000 at December 31, 2020. The reduction is attributed to the sale of one OREO property during the first quarter and a $727,000 write down on OREO in the second quarter.

Total deposits increased $134,289,000, or 16.41%, to $952,651,000 during the year ended December 31, 2020. This increase was due to an increase of $79,947,000 in noninterest bearing deposits, $41,631,000 in NOW and money market accounts, and $16,591,000 in savings accounts, partially offset by a decrease of $3,880,000 in time deposits. In total, NOW, money market and savings accounts increased 13.20% to $499,234,000 at December 31, 2020, compared to $441,012,000 at December 31, 2019. Noninterest bearing deposits increased 25.63% to $391,897,000 at December 31, 2020, compared to $311,950,000 at December 31, 2019. As a result of the net increase, core deposits, which is made up of the balance of noninterest bearing deposits, NOW, money market, savings, and time deposits accounts less than $250,000, increased $133,545,000.

Shareholders’ equity at December 31, 2020 was $117,807,000, an increase of $1,819,000 from shareholders’ equity of $115,988,000 at December 31, 2019. The increase in equity was the result of net earnings for the period, partially offset by cash dividends. At December 31, 2020 there was an accumulated other comprehensive loss of $728,000, as compared to an accumulated other comprehensive loss of $632,000 at December 31, 2019. The change from December 31, 2019 to December 31, 2020 was the result of losses on junior subordinated debentures (TRUPs) caused by a change in non-LIBOR yields during the period and unrealized loss on unrecognized post retirement costs, partially offset by unrealized gains on available for sale securities.

The Board of Directors of United Security Bancshares declared a cash dividend on common stock of $0.11 per share on December 15, 2020. The dividend was payable on January 19, 2021, to shareholders of record as of January 4, 2021. No assurances can be provided that future dividends will be declared and/or as to the timing of such future dividends, if any.

Credit Quality

The Company has recorded a provision for credit losses of $2,769,000 for the year ended December 31, 2020, compared to a provision of $20,000 for the year ended December 31, 2019. Net loan charge-offs totaled $2,155,000 for the year ended December 31, 2020, as compared to net loan charge-offs of $507,000 for the year ended December 31, 2019. The provision recorded during the year is attributed to growth of the loan portfolio, increases in net charge-offs, and adjustment in qualitative factors related to the economic uncertainties caused by COVID-19. As of December 31, 2020, the Company had 1 remaining payment modification of $12,500,000 in connection with the COVID-19 relief provided by the CARES Act and interagency guidance issued in March 2020. The original deferrals of $69.8 million were generally no more than six months in duration and were not considered troubled debt restructurings. The Company recorded a provision for credit loss of $631,000 for the quarter ended December 31, 2020, compared to a provision of $5,000 for the quarter ended December 31, 2019.

The Company's allowance for loan loss totaled 1.30% of the loan portfolio at December 31, 2020, compared to 1.33% at December 31, 2019. Excluding the SBA PPP loans, which are fully government guaranteed, the allowance for loan loss totaled 1.32% of the loan portfolio at December 31, 2020.

Non-performing assets, comprised of nonaccrual loans, troubled debt restructures (TDRs), other real estate owned through foreclosure (OREO), and loans more than 90 days past due and still accruing interest, decreased $3,769,000 or 17.76% between December 31, 2019 and December 31, 2020 to $17,456,000. Nonperforming assets as a percentage of total assets decreased from 2.22% at December 31, 2019 to 1.60% at December 31, 2020. The decrease in nonperforming assets is primarily attributed to the reduction in OREO, nonaccrual loans, and accruing TDR balances. Restructured loans decreased $1,761,000 between December 31, 2019 and December 31, 2020, and nonaccrual loans decreased $201,000 between December 31, 2019 and December 31, 2020 to $11,496,000. OREO balances decreased from $6,753,000 at December 31, 2019 to $5,004,000 at December 31, 2020.
