IBERIABANK Corporation Reports First Quarter Earnings
PRNewswire-FirstCall
LAFAYETTE, La.

IBERIABANK Corporation , the holding company of the 118-year-old IBERIABANK (http://www.iberiabank.com/ ), announced quarterly earnings of $7.3 million for the quarter ended March 31, 2005, a 12% increase over the same period in 2004, and no change compared to the fourth quarter of 2004 ("linked quarter basis"). The Company earned $0.94 per diluted share for the quarter, up 5% from the same period in 2004, and down 6% on a linked quarter basis.

The Company's results were significantly affected by three primary factors. First, the acquisition of American Horizons Bancorp, Inc. ("American Horizons") was completed on January 31, 2005. The financial results for the first quarter of 2005 incorporate the impact of this acquisition for only two months. The conversion of American Horizons' operating systems and branches was completed on February 13, 2005. While aggregate acquisition cost savings are consistent with initial estimates, the phasing in of the savings resulted in a slight drag on earnings during the first quarter. Second, the Company incurred one-time merger related costs associated with lease termination costs, employee severance, and other one-time costs associated with IBERIABANK branches in Northeast Louisiana, in the first quarter of 2005. On January 19, 2005 and September 29, 2004, management previously disclosed estimated one-time merger related charges were expected to be approximately $900,000 on a pre-tax basis, or $0.08 per fully diluted share, on an after-tax basis. Actual reported one-time merger related costs in the first quarter of 2005 were $650,000. On an after-tax basis, the one-time merger related costs totaled $423,000, or $0.06 per fully diluted share. Finally, the first quarter of 2005 had two less calendar days than the preceding quarter. The incremental impact of two less calendar days is approximately $205,000 less net interest income, or $0.02 to fully diluted earnings per share ("EPS").

The following table provides a non-GAAP reconciliation of net income and fully diluted earnings per share adjusting for the one-time merger related costs that were incurred in the first quarter of 2005 compared to the fourth quarter of 2004. Management believes this non-GAAP table provides a useful measure of operating earnings trends due to the nonrecurring nature of the one-time merger related costs.

      quarterly cash dividend by over 50%.  The dividend payout ratio was
      25.5% in the first quarter of 2004, 26.1% in the fourth quarter of
      2004, and 29.4% in the first quarter of 2005.  Excluding the one-time
      merger related charges associated with American Horizons, the dividend

      over financial reporting at December 31, 2004 in accordance with
      Section 404 of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002.

Daryl G. Byrd, President and CEO of IBERIABANK Corporation, remarked, "Our first quarter results demonstrate solid operating earnings and balance sheet strength. Today's announcement regarding our newly authorized 300,000-share repurchase program provides further evidence of our confidence in our future."

Total assets climbed $281 million, or 11% compared to December 31, 2004, and $460 million, or 20% compared to one year ago. American Horizons accounted for $277 million of the growth. Total loans increased $183 million, or 11% compared to year-end 2004, and $362 million, or 25% compared to one year ago. American Horizons accounted for $199 million of the growth. Total deposits jumped $258 million, or 15% since year-end 2004, and increased $274 million, or 16% compared to one year ago. American Horizons accounted for $193 million of the growth. Excluding the acquisition, deposit growth outpaced loan growth by $81 million at March 31, 2005 compared to year-end 2004.

Total shareholders' equity increased $45 million, or 21% compared to year- end 2004, and increased $48 million, or 22% compared to one year ago. At March 31, 2005 the Company's equity-to-assets ratio was 9.73%, compared to 8.99% at year-end 2004 and 9.57% one year ago. Book value per share at March 31, 2005 was $34.55, up $2.52 per share, or 8% compared to $32.03 at year-end 2004 and up 11% compared to $31.02 per share one year ago. As a result of the American Horizons acquisition, tangible book value per share decreased 4% compared to year-end 2004 and was nearly equal to the level reported one year ago.

Loans And Deposits

Total loans grew $183 million between December 31, 2004 and March 31, 2005, of which American Horizons accounted for $199 million of the growth. Exclusive of the acquisition, commercial loans declined $12 million during the first quarter of 2005, due to a few anticipated pay downs. The Company's commercial loan pipeline remains extremely strong, with expected fundings in the second and third quarters of 2005. The yield on the commercial loan portfolio climbed 43 basis points on a linked quarter basis. Indirect automobile loans edged up slightly since year-end 2004 as captive finance companies remained fairly aggressive competitors (American Horizons had no impact).

Residential mortgage loans increased $5 million, or 1% compared to year- end. The average yield on mortgage loans decreased four basis points on a linked quarter basis. Residential loans are comprised of construction loans, private banking mortgages, and retail permanent mortgage loans. American Horizons had no material impact on this category. Construction loans totaled $29 million at March 31, 2005, down $4 million, or 13% since year-end 2004. Construction loans were down 43% compared to one year ago, as the Company sold into the secondary market mortgage loans recently released from construction during the last year. Private banking mortgages increased nearly $9 million, or 7% since year-end. At March 31, 2005, the private banking portfolio had a weighted average coupon of 5.22% and a weighted average maturity of 16.5 years.

The volume of mortgage loan originations totaled $50 million in the first quarter of 2005, compared to $53 million in each the third and fourth quarters of 2004. The pipeline of mortgage loans in process at March 31, 2005 was $60 million, compared to $41 million at December 31, 2004. During the first quarter of 2005, the Company sold into the secondary market $13 million in residential mortgage loans recently released from construction that were held in the loan portfolio, equal to the same level in the fourth quarter of 2004 and compared to $16 million in the third quarter of 2004. These loan sales were part of the Company's stated plans to sell into the secondary market recently originated, mortgage production, including mortgage loans coming out of construction. Loan sale gains declined $177,000 on a linked quarter basis primarily due to fewer loans shipped and slightly narrower price spreads.

The Company experienced strong deposit growth in the first quarter of 2005. Between December 31, 2004 and March 31, 2005, total deposits increased $258 million, or 15%. American Horizons accounted for $193 million of this growth. Noninterest-bearing deposits jumped $46 million, or 21% compared to year-end 2004. The Company's cost of average interest-bearing deposits increased 15 basis points on a linked quarter basis. The yield on average NOW accounts leapt 21 basis points due to public fund deposits tied to Treasury- related indices, savings and money market products increased 13 basis points and the yield on average CDs increased 8 basis points.

Investment Portfolio And Funding

The investment portfolio totaled $600 million at March 31, 2005, up $33 million or 6% compared to year-end 2004. Nearly all of the increase was related to the American Horizons acquisition. As a percentage of assets, the investment portfolio declined from 25% at June 30, 2004 to 24% at September 30, 2004, to 23% at December 31, 2004, to 22% at March 31, 2005. The yield on the investment portfolio remained unchanged on a linked quarter basis. Bond premium amortization was unchanged at $0.6 million in the first quarter of 2005, compared to the fourth quarter of 2004. Given general mortgage refinancing levels and anticipated prepayment speeds, management estimates premium amortization in the second quarter of 2005 may be at levels similar to the last two quarters.

The Company's investment portfolio had a modified duration of 3.5 years at March 31, 2005, compared to 3.6 years at December 31, 2004. The Company's investment portfolio has very limited extension risk. Based on modeling at March 31, 2005, a parallel and instantaneous 300 basis point increase in interest rates would extend the portfolio by only nine months. At current projected speeds, the portfolio is expected to generate approximately $151 million in cash flows over the next 21 months. The portfolio had an unrealized loss of $5.5 million at March 31, 2005, compared to an unrealized gain of $2.1 million at year-end 2004.

The Company regularly reviews the influence of interest rates on the Company's profitability and earnings growth prospects. Asset/liability management modeling at March 31, 2005 indicated the Company's interest rate risk position is fairly balanced. A 100 basis point instantaneous and parallel upward shift in interest rates is estimated to increase net interest income over 12 months by 0.4%. Similarly, a 100 basis point decrease in interest rates would be expected to increase net interest income by 1.0%. The influence of a flattening yield curve, using the forward curve as a guide, would have an anticipated negative impact on net interest income of 0.8%.

The Company's ratio of loans to deposits decreased significantly during the quarter as deposit growth outpaced loan growth. At March 31, 2005, the Company's loan to deposit ratio was 90%, down from 93% at year-end 2004 and 84% one year ago. The Company has placed greater emphasis on deposit generation efforts for 2005 and is experiencing positive results. Exclusive of the acquisition, the majority of deposit growth is in retail and public funds, with some seasonal influence.

Asset Quality

Asset quality statistics remained exceptional compared to peer levels. The Company believes that it uses a conservative definition of NPAs. The Company considers NPAs to include nonaccruing loans, accruing loans more than 90 days past due, foreclosed assets, and Other Real Estate Owned. NPAs amounted to $7.8 million at March 31, 2005, up $1.7 million or 27% compared to year-end 2004. NPAs equated to 0.29% of total assets compared to 0.25% of total assets at year-end 2004. The allowance for loan losses was 1.37%, up 15 basis points compared to 1.22% at year-end 2004. The increase in loan loss reserve was largely attributable to reserves associated with the American Horizons loans. The Company's reserve coverage of NPAs was 320% at March 31, 2005 and 327% at year-end 2004. Loans past due 30 days or more (including nonaccruing loans) represented 0.79% of total loans at March 31, 2005, compared to 0.60% of total loans at December 31, 2004.

The ratio of net charge-offs to average loans was 0.13% in the first quarter of 2005, compared to 0.29% in the fourth quarter of 2004. During the fourth quarter of 2004, the Company charged off a previously disclosed individual commercial credit totaling approximately $0.6 million. On a pro forma basis excluding the problem credit, the ratio of net charge-offs to average loans would have been 0.14% in the fourth quarter of 2004. The Company's provision for loan losses was $650,000 in the first quarter, compared to $1.4 million on a linked quarter basis. The provision covered net charge-offs 1.1 times in the first quarter of 2005, compared to 1.2 times in the fourth quarter of 2004.

Operating Results

Total tax-equivalent revenues increased $1.3 million, or 5%, on a linked quarter basis. Tax-equivalent net interest income increased $1.2 million between the two linked quarters. The Company's tax-equivalent net interest margin improved two basis points on a linked quarter basis.

Noninterest income in the first quarter of 2005 increased $0.1 million, or 2% on a linked quarter basis. Service charge income on deposit accounts increased approximately $0.1 million, or 3% on a linked quarter basis, due primarily to the American Horizons acquisition. This category declined $0.3 million in the prior quarter. Management has determined that the number of NSF items processed has declined consistently over the last few quarters. In the fourth quarter of 2004, the Company recorded gains on the sale of investments totaling $0.3 million, compared to no significant investment gains in the first quarter of 2005. The Company recorded a $0.2 million gain from the merger of Pulse and Discover networks in the first quarter of 2005.

Noninterest expenses increased $2.2 million, or 17% on a linked quarter basis. Excluding one-time merger-related costs, the comparable figures were $1.6 million and 12%, respectively. The significant increase in expenses between the first quarter of 2005 and the fourth quarter of 2004 was due primarily to three factors. First, the first quarter had two months of expenses associated with American Horizons. Second, the Company did not accrue for bonuses in the fourth quarter of 2004, but accrued for bonuses in the first quarter of 2005. Third, share tax expense increased $0.3 million on a linked quarter basis. Salaries and benefits increased $0.9 million, or 13% during this period. The Company's tax-equivalent tangible efficiency ratio (a measure of a bank's operating efficiency) increased from 50.3% in the fourth quarter of 2004 to 55.6% in the first quarter of 2005. Excluding one-time merger related costs, the tangible efficiency ratio in the first quarter of 2005 was 53.3%.

Management confirmed today that, exclusive of one-time merger related costs associated with the acquisition of American Horizons and the impact of potential costs associated with expensing stock options, the 2005 EPS comfort range for the Company remains $4.05 to $4.15 per fully diluted share. This EPS comfort range is based on management's current information, estimates and assumptions. One fundamental assumption is the projected continuing flattening of the yield curve in 2005 as presented in current forward interest rate curves. The range of $4.05 to $4.15 compares to a current average analyst estimate for 2005 of $4.10 per fully diluted share.

Based on a closing stock price on April 20, 2005 of $56.59 per share, the Company's common stock traded at a price-to-earnings ratio of 13.8 times current average analyst estimates of $4.10 per fully diluted EPS for 2005, and 12.5 times average EPS estimates of $4.54 for 2006. In addition, the Company's stock traded at 1.64 times March 31, 2005 book value per share of $34.55. On March 22, 2005, the Company declared a quarterly cash dividend of $0.28 per share, payable to shareholders of record as of March 31, 2005. This dividend level represented a 17% increase over the same period last year and equated to an annualized dividend rate of $1.12 per share and an indicated dividend yield of 1.98%.

The telephone conference call will be held on Thursday, April 21, 2005, beginning at 8:00 a.m. Central Time by dialing 1-800-288-8975. The confirmation code for the call is 775850.
