Company Release - 10/25/2018 7:50 AM ET

WASHINGTON & CHARLESTON, W.V.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- United Bankshares, Inc. (NASDAQ: UBSI), today reported earnings for the third quarter and the first nine months of 2018. Earnings for the third quarter of 2018 were $64.4 million as compared to earnings of $56.7 million for the third quarter of 2017. Diluted earnings per share were $0.62 for the third quarter of 2018 as compared to diluted earnings per share of $0.54 for the third quarter of 2017. Earnings for the first nine months of 2018 were a record $192.4 million as compared to earnings of $132.6 million for the first nine months of 2017. Diluted earnings per share were $1.83 for the first nine months of 2018 as compared to diluted earnings per share of $1.39 per diluted share for the first nine months of 2017.

Third quarter of 2018 results produced an annualized return on average assets of 1.34% and an annualized return on average equity of 7.83%, respectively. For the first nine months of 2018, United’s return on average assets was 1.37% while the return on average equity was 7.86%. United’s annualized returns on average assets and average equity were 1.19% and 6.89%, respectively, for the third quarter of 2017 while the returns on average assets and average equity were 1.03% and 6.22%, respectively, for the first nine months of 2017.

“Our earnings continue to be strong, achieving record earnings and outperforming peer profitability,” stated Richard M. Adams, United’s Chairman of the Board and Chief Executive Officer.

On April 21, 2017, United completed its acquisition of Cardinal Financial Corporation (Cardinal) of Tysons Corner, Virginia. The results of operations of Cardinal are included in the consolidated results of operations from the date of acquisition. As a result of the Cardinal acquisition, the first nine months of 2018 were impacted by increased levels of average balances, income, and expense as compared to the first nine months of 2017. In addition, the third quarter and first nine months of 2017 included $532 thousand and $25.0 million, respectively, of merger-related expenses from the Cardinal acquisition.

Net interest income for the third quarter of 2018 was $148.8 million, which was a decrease of $1.5 million or 1% from the third quarter of 2017. Tax-equivalent net interest income, which adjusts for the tax-favored status of income from certain loans and investments, for the third quarter of 2018 was $149.8 million, a decrease of $2.5 million or 2% from the third quarter of 2017 due mainly to an increase of 54 basis points in the average cost of funds as compared to the third quarter of 2017 due to higher market interest rates.

In addition, loan accretion on acquired loans was $11.6 million and $12.8 million for the third quarter of 2018 and 2017, respectively, decreasing $1.2 million or 10%. Partially offsetting these decreases to tax-equivalent net interest income for the third quarter of 2018 was an increase of 26 basis points in the average yield on earning assets as compared to the third quarter of 2017 due to higher market interest rates. In addition, average earning assets for the third quarter of 2018 increased $172.5 million or 1% from the third quarter of 2017 due mainly to an increase of $491.9 million or 27% in average investment securities. Partially offsetting this increase was a decrease in average short-term investments of $335.3 million or 27%. Average net loans remained flat for the third quarter, increasing $15.9 million or less than 1% from the third quarter of 2017. The net interest margin of 3.56% for the third quarter of 2018 was a decrease of 9 basis points from the net interest margin of 3.65% for the third quarter of 2017.

Net interest income for the first nine months of 2018 was $441.9 million, which was an increase of $47.8 million or 12% from the first nine months of 2017. Tax-equivalent net interest income for the first nine months of 2018 was $445.2 million, an increase of $44.9 million or 11% from the first nine months of 2017. This increase in tax-equivalent net interest income was primarily attributable to an increase in average earning assets from the Cardinal acquisition. Average earning assets increased $1.3 billion or 8% from the first nine months of 2017 as average net loans increased $1.1 billion or 9% for the first nine months of 2018. Average investment securities increased $613.1 million or 37% while short-term investments decreased $436.1 million or 34%. The first nine months of 2018 average yield on earning assets increased 34 basis points from the first nine months of 2017 due to higher market interest rates and additional loan accretion of $10.0 million on acquired loans. Loan accretion was $34.4 million and $24.4 million for the first nine months of 2018 and 2017, respectively. Partially offsetting the increases to tax-equivalent net interest income for the first nine months of 2018 was an increase of 39 basis points in the average cost of funds as compared to the first nine months of 2017 due to higher market interest rates. The net interest margin of 3.61% for the first nine months of 2018 was an increase of 9 basis points from the net interest margin of 3.52% for the first nine months of 2017.

On a linked-quarter basis, net interest income for the third quarter of 2018 was relatively flat from the second quarter of 2018, decreasing $347 thousand or less than 1%. United’s tax-equivalent net interest income for the third quarter of 2018 was also relatively flat, decreasing $413 thousand or less than 1% due to a combination of a $265.9 million or 2% increase in interest bearing funds and an increase of 22 basis points in the average cost of funds as a result of higher market interest rates. In addition, loan accretion on acquired loans decreased $497 thousand. Partially offsetting these increases to tax-equivalent net interest income for the third quarter of 2018 was a $334.5 million or 2% increase in the average earning assets and a 5 basis points increase in the yield on average earning assets. Specifically, average short-term investments increased $262.1 million or 40%. Average net loans and average investment securities were relatively flat for the third quarter of 2018, increasing $80.2 million and decreasing $7.8 million, respectively from the second quarter of 2018. The net interest margin of 3.56% for the third quarter of 2018 decreased 11 basis points from the net interest margin of 3.67% for the second quarter of 2018.

For the quarters ended September 30, 2018 and 2017, the provision for loan losses was $4.8 million and $7.3 million, respectively, while the provision for the first nine months of 2018 was $16.2 million as compared to $21.4 million for the first nine months of 2017. Net charge-offs were $5.0 million and $15.9 million for the third quarter and first nine months of 2018, respectively, as compared to $5.3 million and $19.3 million for the third quarter and first nine months of 2017, respectively. Annualized net charge-offs as a percentage of average loans were 0.15% and 0.16% for the third quarter and first nine months of 2018, respectively. On a linked-quarter basis, the provision for loan losses decreased $1.4 million while net charge-offs decreased $720 thousand from the second quarter of 2018.

Noninterest income for the third quarter of 2018 was $31.7 million, which was a decrease of $6.5 million or 17% from the third quarter of 2017. The decrease was due mainly to a decrease of $7.1 million in income from mortgage banking activities due to decreased production and sales of mortgage loans in the secondary market by United’s mortgage banking subsidiary, George Mason. However, George Mason did originate approximately $178.3 million of portfolio mortgage loan products for United Bank during the third quarter of 2018. In addition, net gains and losses on investment securities’ activity declined $619 thousand.

Noninterest income for the first nine months of 2018 was $98.9 million, which was flat from the first nine months of 2017, increasing $4 thousand or less than 1%. Income from mortgage banking activities for the first nine months of 2018 increased $2.9 million from the first nine months of 2017. This increase was mainly due to including the production and sales of mortgage loans in the secondary market by George Mason for nine months in 2018 as compared to slightly over five months in 2017. In addition, fees from brokerage services and bankcard fees increased $1.1 million and $952 thousand, respectively, due to increased volume. Fees from trust services increased $680 thousand due to an increase in the value of managed assets while fees from deposit services increased $345 thousand mainly due to higher income from debit card and automated teller machine (ATM) fees. Mostly offsetting these increases was a decline in net gains and losses on investment securities’ activity of $5.8 million for the first nine months of 2018 from the first nine months of 2017 due mainly to a net gain of $3.8 million on the redemption of an investment security during the first quarter of 2017.

On a linked-quarter basis, noninterest income for the third quarter of 2018 decreased $4.3 million or 12% from the second quarter of 2018. The decrease was due mainly to a decrease of $5.4 million in income from mortgage banking activities due mainly to a change in fair value of $6.2 million on George Mason’s interest rate lock commitments. In addition, net gains and losses on investment securities’ activity decreased $97 thousand. Partially offsetting these decreases in noninterest income was a $834 thousand increase in fees from brokerage services as well as a $253 thousand increase in fees from deposit services and a $246 thousand increase in fees from trust services mainly due to increased volume.

Noninterest expense for the third quarter of 2018 was $93.3 million, a decrease of $3.3 million or 3% from the third quarter of 2017. In particular, employee compensation decreased $3.6 million due mainly to a decrease of $3.2 million in commissions expense, other real estate owned (OREO) expense decreased $1.8 million and merger expenses decreased $434 thousand. Partially offsetting these decreases was an increase in Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) insurance expense of $2.0 million as United Bank is now considered a large institution and subject to increased assessment rates. In addition, equipment expense increased $835 thousand due to increased maintenance expense and data processing expense increased $471 thousand due to additional processing.

Noninterest expense for the first nine months of 2018 was $277.2 million, an increase of $5.5 million or 2% from the first nine months of 2017 due mainly to the additional employees and branch offices from the Cardinal acquisition as most major categories of noninterest expense showed increases partially offset by a decline in the associated merger-related expenses of the acquisition. In particular, employee benefits increased $1.8 million, employee compensation increased $323 thousand, equipment expense increased $2.8 million, and data processing expense increased $2.8 million. In addition, FDIC insurance expense increased $3.2 million due to United Bank now being considered a large institution as previously mentioned. Partially offsetting these increases was a decrease in net occupancy expense of $2.3 million due to the expense for the termination of leases and the reduction in value of leasehold improvements for closed offices in the Cardinal acquisition being included in the first nine months of 2017. In addition, OREO expense decreased $2.2 million and other expense decreased $943 thousand due to a decrease in merger-related expenses.

On a linked-quarter basis, noninterest expense for the third quarter of 2018 was flat from the second quarter of 2018, decreasing $95 thousand or less than 1%. In particular, employee compensation and employee benefits decreased $1.8 million and $653 thousand, respectively, as a result of lower commissions expense and fewer employees related to a decrease in production and sales of mortgage loans at George Mason. Mostly offsetting these decreases in noninterest expense was an increase in FDIC insurance expense of $688 thousand due to United Bank now being considered a large institution as previously mentioned. In addition, equipment expense increased $613 thousand, data processing expense increased $251 thousand, OREO expense increased $365 thousand, and net occupancy expense increased $197 thousand.

For the third quarter and first nine months of 2018, income tax expense was $17.9 million and $55.1 million, respectively, as compared to $27.8 million and $67.4 million, respectively, in the third quarter and first nine months of 2017. The decreases in 2018 were mainly due to a decline in the effective tax rate as a result of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017 (the Tax Act). On a linked-quarter basis, income tax expense for the third quarter of 2018 decreased $1.3 million from the second quarter of 2018 due to a combination of lower earnings and a lower effective tax rate. United’s effective tax rate was 21.77% for the third quarter of 2018, 22.50% for the second quarter of 2018 and 32.91% for the third quarter of 2017. For the first nine months of 2018 and 2017, United's effective tax rate was 22.25% and 33.68%, respectively. The lower effective tax rate for the time periods in 2018 was due to the impact of the Tax Act.

United’s asset quality continues to be sound. At September 30, 2018, nonperforming loans were $146.1 million, or 1.10% of loans, net of unearned income, down from nonperforming loans of $168.7 million, or 1.30% of loans, net of unearned income, at December 31, 2017. As of September 30, 2018, the allowance for loan losses was $76.9 million or 0.58% of loans, net of unearned income, as compared to $76.6 million or 0.59% of loans, net of unearned income, at December 31, 2017. Total nonperforming assets of $164.9 million, including OREO of $18.8 million at September 30, 2018, represented 0.86% of total assets as compared to nonperforming assets of $193.1 million or 1.01%, including OREO of $24.3 million at December 31, 2017.

United continues to be well-capitalized based upon regulatory guidelines. United’s estimated risk-based capital ratio is 14.6% at September 30, 2018 while its estimated Common Equity Tier 1 capital, Tier 1 capital and leverage ratios are 12.4%, 12.4% and 10.3%, respectively. The regulatory requirements for a well-capitalized financial institution are a risk-based capital ratio of 10.0%, a Common Equity Tier 1 capital ratio of 6.5%, a Tier 1 capital ratio of 8.0% and a leverage ratio of 5.0%.

As of September 30, 2018, United had consolidated assets of approximately $19.2 billion with 140 full service offices in West Virginia, Virginia, Maryland, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Washington, D.C. United Bankshares stock is traded on the NASDAQ Global Select Market under the quotation symbol "UBSI".

Cautionary Statements

The Company is required under generally accepted accounting principles to evaluate subsequent events through the filing of its September 30, 2018 consolidated financial statements on Form 10-Q. As a result, the Company will continue to evaluate the impact of any subsequent events on critical accounting assumptions and estimates made as of September 30, 2018 and will adjust amounts preliminarily reported, if necessary.

Use of non-GAAP Financial Measures

This press release contains certain financial measures that are not recognized under U.S. generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP"). Generally, United has presented these “non-GAAP” financial measures because it believes that these measures provide meaningful additional information to assist in the evaluation of United’s results of operations or financial position. Presentation of these non-GAAP financial measures is consistent with how United’s management evaluates its performance internally and these non-GAAP financial measures are frequently used by securities analysts, investors and other interested parties in the evaluation of companies in the banking industry.

Specifically, this press release contains certain references to financial measures identified as tax-equivalent (FTE) net interest income, tangible equity and tangible book value per share. Management believes these non-GAAP financial measures to be helpful in understanding United’s results of operations or financial position.

Net interest income is presented in this press release on a tax-equivalent basis. The tax-equivalent basis adjusts for the tax-favored status of income from certain loans and investments. Although this is a non-GAAP measure, United’s management believes this measure is more widely used within the financial services industry and provides better comparability of net interest income arising from taxable and tax-exempt sources. United uses this measure to monitor net interest income performance and to manage its balance sheet composition. The tax-equivalent adjustment combines amounts of interest income on federally nontaxable loans and investment securities using the statutory federal income tax rate of 21% for 2018 and 35% for 2017.

Tangible common equity is calculated as GAAP total shareholders’ equity minus total intangible assets. Tangible common equity can thus be considered the most conservative valuation of the company. Tangible common equity is also presented on a per common share basis. Management provides these amounts to facilitate the understanding of as well as to assess the quality and composition of United’s capital structure. By removing the effect of intangible assets that result from merger and acquisition activity, the “permanent” items of common equity are presented. These two measures, along with others, are used by management to analyze capital adequacy.

Where non-GAAP financial measures are used, the comparable GAAP financial measure, as well as reconciliation to that comparable GAAP financial measure can be found in the attached financial information tables to this press release. Investors should recognize that United’s presentation of these non-GAAP financial measures might not be comparable to similarly titled measures at other companies. These non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered a substitute for GAAP basis measures and United strongly encourages a review of its condensed consolidated financial statements in their entirety.

Forward-Looking Statements

This press release contains certain forward-looking statements, including certain plans, expectations, goals and projections, which are subject to numerous assumptions, risks and uncertainties. Actual results could differ materially from those contained in or implied by such statements for a variety of factors including: changes in economic conditions; movements in interest rates; competitive pressures on product pricing and services; success and timing of business strategies; the nature and extent of governmental actions and reforms; and rapidly changing technology and evolving banking industry standards.
