HomeStreet Reports Third Quarter 2023 Results


HomeStreet, Inc. (Nasdaq: HMST) (including its consolidated subsidiaries, the "Company", "HomeStreet" or "we"), the parent company of HomeStreet Bank, today announced the financial results for the quarter ended September 30, 2023. As we present non-GAAP measures in this release, the reader should refer to the non-GAAP reconciliations set forth below under the section "Non-GAAP Financial Measures."

 

Operating Results

 

Third quarter 2023 compared to second quarter 2023

Reported Results:

  • Net income (loss): $2.3 million compared to $(31.4) million
  • Earnings (loss) per fully diluted share: $0.12 compared to $(1.67)
  • Return on Average Equity ("ROAE"): 1.7% compared to (21.7)%
  • Return on Average Assets ("ROAA"): 0.10% compared to (1.32)%
  • Net interest margin: 1.74% compared to 1.93%
  • Efficiency ratio: 98.3% compared to 93.7%

 

Core Results:(1)

  • Net income: $2.3 million compared to $3.2 million
  • Earnings per fully diluted share: $0.12 compared to $0.17
  • Return on Average Tangible Equity ("ROATE"): 2.2% compared to 2.9%
  • Return on Average Assets ("ROAA"): 0.10% compared to 0.13%

(1) Core net income, return on average tangible equity and core return on average assets are non-GAAP measures, for a reconciliation to the nearest comparable GAAP measure see "Non-GAAP financial measures in this earnings release.

"Our operating results for the quarter reflect the continuing adverse impact of the historically record velocity and magnitude of increases in short-term interest rates," said Mark K. Mason HomeStreet's Chairman of the Board, President, and Chief Executive Officer. "The high interest rate environment has significantly negatively impacted our net interest margin as well as loan volume in our residential and commercial mortgage banking businesses whose activity continues at historically low levels. To mitigate these challenges, we have reduced controllable expenses where possible, reduced staff to the minimum levels to transact current business volume in a safe and sound manner, raised new deposits through promotional products and focused our new loan origination activity primarily on floating rate products such as commercial loans, residential construction loans and home equity loans. Due to historically low levels of prepayments, our loan portfolio has remained stable even with our reduced level of originations."

Financial Position

 

As of and for the quarter ended September 30, 2023

  • Uninsured deposits were $535 million, or 8% of total deposits
  • Excluding brokered deposits, total deposits decreased $137 million
  • Loans held for investment ("LHFI"), remained stable
  • Nonperforming assets to total assets: 0.42%
  • Allowance for credit losses to LHFI: 0.55%
  • Book value per share: $26.74
  • Tangible book value per share: $26.18

"The deposit outflows we have experienced in 2023 were primarily due to depositors seeking higher yields and seasonal tax payments," Mr. Mason stated. "With noninterest-bearing and low-cost deposits seeking higher yields, we have implemented a strategy to attract new deposits and retain existing deposits through promotional rate certificates of deposit accounts and money market accounts."

"Asset quality remained strong in the third quarter as total past due and nonaccrual loans and nonperforming assets all decreased in the quarter," added Mr. Mason. "Today, we do not see any meaningful credit challenges on the horizon."

Other

 

  • Declared and paid a cash dividend of $0.10 per share in the third quarter

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

To supplement our unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements presented in accordance with GAAP, we use certain non-GAAP measures of financial performance.

In this press release, we use the following non-GAAP measures: (i) tangible common equity and tangible assets as we believe this information is consistent with the treatment by bank regulatory agencies, which exclude intangible assets from the calculation of capital ratios; (ii) core income and effective tax rate on core income before taxes, which excludes goodwill impairment charges and the related tax impact as we believe this measure is a better comparison to be used for projecting future results and (iii) an efficiency ratio which is the ratio of noninterest expense to the sum of net interest income and noninterest income, excluding certain items of income or expense and excluding taxes incurred and payable to the state of Washington as such taxes are not classified as income taxes and we believe including them in noninterest expense impacts the comparability of our results to those companies whose operations are in states where assessed taxes on business are classified as income taxes.

These supplemental performance measures may vary from, and may not be comparable to, similarly titled measures provided by other companies in our industry. Non-GAAP financial measures are not in accordance with, or an alternative for, GAAP. Generally, a non-GAAP financial measure is a numerical measure of a company's performance that either excludes or includes amounts that are not normally excluded or included in the most directly comparable measure calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP. A non-GAAP financial measure may also be a financial metric that is not required by GAAP or other applicable requirements.

We believe that these non-GAAP financial measures, when taken together with the corresponding GAAP financial measures, provide meaningful supplemental information regarding our performance by providing additional information used by management that is not otherwise required by GAAP or other applicable requirements. Our management uses, and believes that investors benefit from referring to, these non-GAAP financial measures in assessing our operating results and when planning, forecasting and analyzing future periods. These non-GAAP financial measures also facilitate a comparison of our performance to prior periods. We believe these measures are frequently used by securities analysts, investors and other parties in the evaluation of companies in our industry. These non-GAAP financial measures should be considered in addition to, not as a substitute for or superior to, financial measures prepared in accordance with GAAP. In the information below, we have provided reconciliations of, where applicable, the most comparable GAAP financial measures to the non-GAAP measures used in this earnings release, or a reconciliation of the non-GAAP calculation of the financial measure.
