Financial report summary

Management Discussion
  • Net income increased $19.6 million to $20.7 million for the first quarter of 2021 compared to $1.1 million for the first quarter of 2020. Net income available to common shareholders for the first quarter of 2021 was $20.3 million, or $1.27 per diluted share, compared with $762 thousand, or $0.05 per diluted share, for the first quarter of last year. Return on average common equity was 18.28% and return on average assets was 1.66% for the first quarter of 2021 compared to 0.72% and 0.10%, respectively, for the first quarter of 2020.
  • Net income for both periods was significantly impacted by the provision for credit losses. In the first quarter of 2020, the provision of $13.9 million was driven by the adoption of the current expected credit loss standard (“CECL”) and the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the economic environment. The designated loss driver for our CECL model is the national unemployment forecast, which spiked in early 2020 at the onset of the pandemic. In the first quarter of 2021, the provision was a benefit of $2.0 million due to continued improvement in national unemployment and positive trends in qualitative factors, resulting in a release of some of our credit loss reserves.
  • Net interest income totaled $37.9 million in the first quarter of 2021, up from $33.1 million in the first quarter of 2020. The increase was primarily the result of an increase in interest-earning assets and the positive impact of PPP loan forgiveness in the first quarter of 2021. Average loans and average investment securities were up $417.8 million and $134.7 million, respectively, in the first quarter of 2021 compared to the same quarter in 2020.
