Amerant Chairman and CEO Jerry Plush stated “We are pleased to again report strong asset, deposit and revenue growth this quarter. Our team delivered, building on the upward momentum we have shown throughout 2022.”

Adoption of the CECL Accounting Standard

In the fourth quarter of 2022, the Company adopted the CECL accounting standard for estimating allowance for credit losses. The adoption of CECL as of December 31, 2022, resulted in an increase to the allowance for credit losses of $18.7 million, with a corresponding after tax cumulative effect adjustment to retained earnings of $13.9 million as of January 1, 2022, as required by the standard. In addition, in the fourth quarter of 2022, the Company recorded a provision for credit losses totaling $20.9 million, which includes the retroactive effect of CECL adoption for all previous quarterly periods in the year ended December 31, 2022 for an amount of approximately $11.1 million1, including loan growth and changes to macro-economic conditions during the year 2022. Quarterly amounts for the first, second and third quarters of 2022 do not reflect the adoption of CECL. The Company will provide an update to its interim consolidated financial information for each of the quarters in 2022 in its Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2022, reflecting the impacts of the adoption of CECL on each interim period of 2022.

Under the CECL accounting standard, the model for estimating credit losses on financial assets, including loans held for investment, changes from an incurred loss model to an expected loss model. The allowance for credit losses under the expected loss model is an estimate of life-of-loan losses for the Company’s loans held for investment.

Financial Highlights Continued:

  • Average yield on loans was 5.85%, up compared to 5.06% and 4.10% in 3Q22 and 4Q21, respectively. Average yield on loans for the full-year 2022 was 4.92%, also up compared to 3.92% for the full-year 2021.

  • Non-performing loans were $37.6 million, an increase of $18.9 million, or 100.6%, compared to $18.7 million as of 3Q22 and a decrease of $12.2 million, or 24.5%, compared to $49.8 million as of 4Q21.

  • The allowance for credit losses ("ACL") was $83.5 million, an increase of $29.8 million, or 55.5%, compared to $53.7 million as of 3Q22 and an increase of $13.6 million, or 19.5%, compared to $69.9 million in 4Q21. The increase to the ACL was primarily driven by the adoption of CECL as of December 31, 2022. Quarterly amounts for third quarter of 2022 do not reflect the adoption of CECL.

  • Core deposits were $5.32 billion, up $114.3 million, or 2.2%, compared to $5.20 billion as of 3Q22 and up $1.0 billion, or 23.8%, compared to $4.29 billion as of 4Q21.

Core PPNR2 was $105.5 million for the full-year 2022, an increase of $35.6 million, or 50.9%, compared to $69.9 million for the full-year 2021.

Interim Financial Information

Unaudited financial information as of and for interim periods, including the three and twelve month periods ended December 31, 2022 and the three month period ended December 31, 2021, may not reflect our results of operations for our fiscal year ended, or financial condition as of December 31, 2022, or any other period of time or date.

In the fourth quarter of 2022, the Company adopted the Current Expected Credit Loss (“CECL”) accounting standard for estimating allowance for credit losses. The adoption of CECL as of December 31, 2022, resulted in an increase to the allowance for credit losses of $18.7 million, with a corresponding after tax cumulative effect adjustment to retained earnings of $13.9 million as of January 1, 2022, as required by the standard. In addition, in the fourth quarter of 2022, the Company recorded a provision for credit losses totaling $20.9 million, which includes the retroactive effect of CECL adoption for all previous quarterly periods in the year ended December 31, 2022 for an amount of approximately $11.1 million, including loan growth and changes to macro-economic conditions during the year 2022. Quarterly amounts for the first, second and third quarters of 2022 do not reflect the adoption of CECL. The Company will provide an update to its interim consolidated financial information for each of the quarters in 2022 in its Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2022, reflecting the impacts of the adoption of CECL on each interim period of 2022.

Under the CECL accounting standard, the model for estimating credit losses on financial assets, including loans held for investment, changes from an incurred loss model to an expected loss model. The allowance for credit losses under the expected loss model is an estimate of life-of-loan losses for the Company’s loans held for investment.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

The Company supplements its financial results that are determined in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“GAAP”) with non-GAAP financial measures, such as “pre-provision net revenue (PPNR)”, “core pre-provision net revenue (Core PPNR)”, “core noninterest income”, “core noninterest expenses”, “core net income”, “core earnings per share (basic and diluted)”, “core return on assets (Core ROA)”, “core return on equity (Core ROE)”, “core efficiency ratio”, and “tangible stockholders’ equity book value per common share”. This supplemental information is not required by, or is not presented in accordance with GAAP. The Company refers to these financial measures and ratios as “non-GAAP financial measures” and they should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for the GAAP measures presented herein.

We use certain non-GAAP financial measures, including those mentioned above, both to explain our results to shareholders and the investment community and in the internal evaluation and management of our businesses. Our management believes that these non-GAAP financial measures and the information they provide are useful to investors since these measures permit investors to view our performance using the same tools that our management uses to evaluate our past performance and prospects for future performance, especially in light of the Company’s adoption of CECL as of December 31, 2022 and for the year then ended, as well as the additional costs we have incurred in connection with the Company’s restructuring activities that began in 2018 and continued in 2022, including the effect of non-core banking activities such as the sale of loans and securities, the valuation of securities, derivatives, loans held for sale and other real estate owned, the sale of our corporate headquarters in the fourth quarter of 2021, and other non-routine actions intended to improve customer service and operating performance.

(2)   In the fourth quarter of 2022, the Company adopted the Current Expected Credit Loss (“CECL”) accounting standard using a modified retrospective approach. Therefore, quarterly amounts for the first, second and third quarters of 2022 do not reflect the adoption of CECL. In the fourth quarter of 2022, the Company recorded an increase to its allowance for credit losses (“ACL”) of $18.7 million as of January 1, 2022, with a corresponding after tax cumulative effect adjustment to retained earnings of $13.9 million. In addition, in the fourth quarter of 2022, the Company recorded the impact of CECL on its ACL in 2022 through a provision for credit losses of $11.1 million, including the retroactive effect of CECL for all previous quarterly periods in the year ended December 31, 2022. The Company has not elected to apply an available three-year transition provision to its regulatory capital computations as a result of its adoption of CECL in 2022.
(3)   Core deposits consist of total deposits excluding all time deposits.
(4)   On March 9, 2022, the Company completed a $30.0 million offering of subordinated notes with a 4.25% fixed-to-floating rate and due March 15, 2032 (the “Subordinated Notes”). The Subordinated Notes bear interest at a fixed rate of 4.25% per annum, from and including March 9, 2022, to but excluding March 15, 2027, with interest payable semi-annually in arrears. From and including March 15, 2027, to but excluding the stated maturity date or early redemption date, the interest rate will reset quarterly to an annual floating rate equal to the then-current benchmark rate, which will initially be the three-month Secured Overnight Financing Rate (“SOFR”) plus 251 basis points, with interest during such period payable quarterly in arrears. If the three-month SOFR cannot be determined during the applicable floating rate period, a different index will be determined and used in accordance with the terms of the Subordinated Notes. Notes are presented net of direct issuance costs which are deferred and amortized over 10 years. The Subordinated Notes have been structured to qualify as Tier 2 capital of the Company for regulatory capital purposes, and rank equally in right of payment to all of our existing and future subordinated indebtedness.
(5)   In the first quarter of 2022, the Company repurchased an aggregate of 652,118 shares of Class A common stock at a weighted average price of $33.96 per share, under the Class A common stock repurchase program launched in 2021 (the “Class A Common Stock Repurchase Program”).

(6)   In the fourth quarter of 2021, the Company’s shareholders approved a clean-up merger, previously announced by the Company, pursuant to which a subsidiary of the Company merged with and into the Company (the “Merger”). Under the terms of the Merger, each outstanding share of Class B common stock was converted to 0.95 of a share of Class A common stock. In addition, any shareholder who owned fewer than 100 shares of Class A common stock upon completion of the Merger, received cash in lieu of Class A common stock.

(10)   This presentation contains adjusted financial information determined by methods other than GAAP. This adjusted financial information is reconciled to GAAP in Exhibit 2 - Non-GAAP Financial Measures Reconciliation.
(11)   In all the periods shown, potential dilutive instruments consisted of unvested shares of restricted stock, restricted stock units and performance stock units. Potential dilutive instruments were included in the diluted earnings per share computation because, when the unamortized deferred compensation cost related to these shares was divided by the average market price per share in all the periods shown, fewer shares would have been purchased than restricted shares assumed issued. Therefore, in those periods, such awards resulted in higher diluted weighted average shares outstanding than basic weighted average shares outstanding, and had a dilutive effect in per share earnings.
(12)   Operating data for the periods presented have been annualized.
(13)   NIM is defined as NII divided by average interest-earning assets, which are loans, securities, deposits with banks and other financial assets which yield interest or similar income.
(14)   Calculated based upon the average daily balance of total assets.
(15)   Calculated based upon the average daily balance of stockholders’ equity.
(16)   Total revenue is the result of net interest income before provision for credit losses plus noninterest income.
(17)   Total stockholders’ equity divided by total risk-weighted assets, calculated according to the standardized regulatory capital ratio calculations.
(18)   Tier 1 capital divided by total risk-weighted assets. Tier 1 capital is composed of Common Equity Tier 1 (CET1) capital plus outstanding qualifying trust preferred securities of $62.3 million at each of all the dates presented.
(19)   Tier 1 capital divided by quarter to date average assets.
(20)   CET1 capital divided by total risk-weighted assets.
(21)   Tangible common equity is calculated as the ratio of common equity less goodwill and other intangibles divided by total assets less goodwill and other intangible assets. Other intangible assets consist of, among other things, mortgage servicing rights and are included in other assets in the Company’s consolidated balance sheets.
(22)   Calculated as the ratio of total loans gross divided by total deposits.
(23)   Non-performing assets include all accruing loans past due by 90 days or more, all nonaccrual loans, restructured loans that are considered “troubled debt restructurings” or “TDRs”, and other real estate owned (“OREO”) properties acquired through or in lieu of foreclosure.
(24)   Non-performing loans include all accruing loans past due by 90 days or more, all nonaccrual loans and restructured loans that are considered TDRs.
(25)   Calculated based upon the average daily balance of outstanding loan principal balance net of unamortized deferred loan origination fees and costs, excluding the allowance for credit losses. During the fourth, third, second and first quarters of 2022, and the fourth quarter of 2021, there were net charge offs of $9.8 million, $1.3 million, $4.0 million, $3.8 million, and $7.0 million, respectively. During the fourth quarter of 2022, the Company charged-off $3.9 million related to a CRE loan, $5.5 million related to multiple consumer loans and $1.1 million related to multiple commercial loans. During the third quarter of 2022, the Company charged-off $1.7 million related to multiple consumer loans and $0.2 million in connection with two commercial loans. During the second quarter of 2022, the Company charged-off $3.6 million in connection with a loan relationship with a Miami-based U.S. coffee trader. During the first quarter of 2022, the Company charged-off $3.3 million in two commercial loans, including $2.5 million related to a nonaccrual loan paid off during the period. During the fourth quarter of 2021, the Company charged-off an aggregate of $4.2 million related to various commercial loans and $1.8 million related to one real estate loan.
(26)   Other operating expenses is the result of total noninterest expense less salary and employee benefits.
(27)   Efficiency ratio is the result of noninterest expense divided by the sum of noninterest income and NII.
(28)   As of December 31, 2022, September 30, 2022, June 30, 2022, March 31, 2022 and December 31, 2021, includes 68, 67, 67, 79, and 72 FTEs for Amerant Mortgage LLC, respectively. In addition, effective January 1, 2022, there were 80 employees who are no longer working for the Company as a result of the new agreement with Fidelity National Information Services, Inc. (“FIS”).
(29)   Core efficiency ratio is the efficiency ratio less the effect of restructuring costs and other adjustments, described in Exhibit 2 - Non-GAAP Financial Measures Reconciliation.

In all the periods presented, potential dilutive instruments were included in the diluted earnings per share computation because, when the unamortized deferred compensation cost related to these shares was divided by the average market price per share in those periods, fewer shares would have been purchased than restricted shares assumed issued. Therefore, in those periods, such awards resulted in higher diluted weighted average shares outstanding than basic weighted average shares outstanding, and had a dilutive effect on per share earnings.
(13)   Other intangible assets consist of, among other things, mortgage servicing rights (“MSRs”) of $1.3 million, $1.0 million, $0.9 million, $0.9 million and $0.6 million at December 31, 2022, September 30, 2022, June 30, 2022, March 31, 2022 and December 31, 2021, respectively, and are included in other assets in the Company’s consolidated balance sheets.
