WHITEHALL, Ohio, April 19, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Heartland BancCorp (�Heartland� and �the Company�) (OTCQX: HLAN) today reported net income of $4.0 million, or $1.99 per diluted share in the first quarter of 2022, compared to $4.6 million, or $2.29 per diluted share in the first quarter of 2021, and $5.0 million, or $2.48 per diluted share, in the preceding quarter. Results for the first quarter of 2022 reflect lower interest and fees on Small Business Administration (�SBA�) Paycheck Protection Program (�PPP�) loans compared to the prior quarter and the year ago quarter, due to slowing PPP loan forgiveness as the program nears its conclusion.
The company announced that its board of directors declared a quarterly cash dividend of $0.69 per share. The dividend will be payable July 10, 2022, to shareholders of record as of June 25, 2022. Heartland has paid regular quarterly cash dividends since 1993.
�The continued success of our outreach to new and existing customers generated solid net interest income and had a substantial impact on core loan and demand deposit growth during the first quarter,� stated G. Scott McComb, Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer. �Strong economic factors in our greater Columbus and northern Kentucky markets, along with new opportunities in the Cincinnati market that we entered into organically late last year, poise us well for growth in the year ahead. We continue to focus on growing our core deposit franchise by expanding into new markets, capturing market share in our existing markets, diversifying our revenue streams and obtaining operational leverage through enhanced technology systems. With our solid credit quality and CRE risk management culture, and the infrastructure and people in place for future expansion, we are well positioned for future growth.�

Balance Sheet Review
Total assets decreased 7.4% to $1.45 billion at March 31, 2022, compared to $1.57 billion a year earlier, and decreased nominally compared to $1.47 billion three months earlier. The slight decrease compared to the prior quarter was the due to both PPP loan forgiveness and a reduction in excess liquidity, which offset the quarterly loan growth . Heartland�s loan-to-deposit ratio was 91.9% at March 31, 2022, compared to 93.4% at December 31, 2021, and 84.6% at March 31, 2021.
Liquidity levels continued to decline, with interest bearing deposits in other banks at $56.3 million, representing 4.1% of interest-earning assets as of March 31, 2022, compared to 12.3% at March 31, 2021.
Average interest-earning assets were $1.35 billion in the first quarter of 2022, from $1.38 billion in the fourth quarter of 2021 and $1.46 billion in the first quarter a year ago. The average yield on interest-earning assets was 4.07% in the first quarter of 2022, down from 4.13% in the preceding quarter and up from 3.81% in the first quarter a year ago.
Over the course of the SBA�s Paycheck Protection Program (�PPP�), Heartland originated 1,845 PPP loans, or $199.0 million in loans, and generated total PPP loan fees receivable of approximately $8.6 million. As of March 31, 2022, Heartland had received forgiveness from the SBA for $189.8 million. Approximately $347,000 of the income recognized during the first quarter of 2022 was related to recognizing origination fees for PPP loan payoffs or forgiveness, compared to $846,000 of income recognized during the fourth quarter of 2021, and $896,000 of income recognized during the first quarter of 2021. The balance of net unamortized PPP fees remaining to be recognized in fee income over the life of the associated loans, was $194,000 as of March 31, 2022.
�Core loan growth remains stable, although activity has tapered off a bit compared to the record production during the prior quarter, as we continue to battle prepayment activity. However, we are optimistic with our loan pipelines, with the construction pipeline being particularly strong, and we are seeing growth across most loan categories,� said Ben Babcanec, EVP and Chief Operating Officer.
The total loan portfolio balance was reduced due to $18.7 million in PPP loan forgiveness during the quarter. Excluding PPP loans, gross loans increased modestly to $1.15 billion at March 31, 2022, compared to $1.14 billion at December 31, 2021, and increased 11.5% compared to $1.03 billion a year earlier. Including PPP loans, net loans were $1.14 billion at March 31, 2022, which was a 1.6% decrease compared to $1.16 billion at December 31, 2021, and a nominal increase compared to $1.13 billion at March 31, 2021.
Commercial loans decreased 39.8% from year ago levels to $142.9 million, and comprise 12.4% of the total loan portfolio at March 31, 2022. The decrease was primarily due to the $111.6 million reduction in PPP loan balances compared to a year ago. Owner occupied commercial real estate loans (CRE) increased 16.4% to $285.3 million at March 31, 2022, compared to a year ago, and comprise 24.7% of the total loan portfolio. Non-owner occupied CRE loans increased 15.1% to $346.3 million, compared to a year ago, and comprise 30.0% of the total loan portfolio at March 31, 2022. 1-4 family residential real estate loans increased 4.1% from year ago levels to $331.3 million and represent 28.7% of total loans. Home equity loans decreased modestly from year ago levels to $35.9 million and represent 3.1% of total loans, and consumer loans increased 30.3% from year ago levels to $13.2 million and represent 1.1% of the total loan portfolio at March 31, 2022.
Total deposits were $1.26 billion at both March 31, 2022, and at December 31, 2021. This compared to $1.36 billion a year earlier. The decrease compared to a year ago was largely due to the reduction in CD�s as the Company continues to focus on shifting its deposit mix to gathering and retaining low-cost deposits. �We were able to capitalize on our excess liquidity during the year and improve our deposit mix, remaining focused on low-cost deposits and paying off long-term FHLB advances in the first quarter of 2022. As a result, FHLB advances were at zero at March 31, 2022,� said Babcanec. At March 31, 2022, noninterest bearing demand deposit accounts increased 11.9% compared to a year ago and represented 39.8% of total deposits; savings, NOW and money market accounts decreased 3.9% compared to a year ago and represented 46.0% of total deposits, and CDs decreased 42.1% compared to a year ago and comprised 14.2% of total deposits.�� The average cost of deposits decreased to 0.15% in the first quarter of 2022, compared to 0.17% in the fourth quarter of 2021, and 0.34% in the first quarter of 2021.
Shareholders� equity increased 3.8% to $147.7 million at March 31, 2022, compared to $142.2 million a year earlier. At March 31, 2022, Heartland�s tangible book value was $66.92 per share, compared to $64.56 one year earlier.
Heartland continues to maintain capital levels in excess of the requirements to be categorized as �well-capitalized� with Tier 1 Leverage to Average Assets of 9.79% at March 31, 2022, compared to 9.55% at December 31, 2021, and 8.30% at March 31, 2021.
In the first quarter of 2022, Heartland generated a ROAA of 1.14% and a ROAE of 10.66%, compared to 1.36% and 13.14%, respectively, in the fourth quarter of 2021 and 1.20% and 13.25%, respectively, in the first quarter a year ago.
Net Interest Income/Net Interest Margin
Net interest income, before the provision for loan losses, increased 5.9% to $12.8 million in the first quarter of 2022, compared to $12.1 million in the first quarter a year ago, and decreased 4.6% compared to $13.4 million in the preceding quarter. Interest income benefitted from the amortization of PPP loan fees and the full recognition of the deferred PPP loan fees upon forgiveness by the SBA. During the first quarter of 2022, Heartland received $18.7 million in loan forgiveness through the SBA, compared to $33.4 million in loan forgiveness during the prior quarter, resulting in total net PPP fee income of $347,000 and $841,000, respectively. As of March 31, 2022, there was $194,000 of net deferred PPP fee income remaining.��
Total revenues (net interest income before the provision for loan losses, plus noninterest income) was $16.1 million in the first quarter, a 1.8% increase compared to $15.8 million in the first quarter a year ago, and a 6.7% decrease compared to $17.2 million in the preceding quarter.
Heartland�s net interest margin was 3.83% in the first quarter of 2022, compared to 3.86% in the preceding quarter and improved by 37 basis points compared to 3.36% in the first quarter of 2021. �While our liquidity position remains elevated, our net interest margin improved compared to the first quarter a year ago, reflecting increasing net interest income and strong core loan growth. New core loans that carry a higher interest rate are replacing lower rate PPP loans, which is helping our net interest margin expand compared to a year ago,� said Carrie Almendinger, EVP, and Chief Financial Officer. �We expect continued net interest margin improvement with increases in interest rates in 2022, as approximately 33% of our loan portfolio will reprice within the next 12 months. Also notable during the first quarter was the impact of SBA PPP loan fees and interest on net interest income, which increased our net interest margin by 7 basis points during the first quarter of 2022, and by 15 basis points during the prior quarter, compared to what our net interest margin would have been if we had not made any PPP loans. The increase from PPP loans is the result of recognition of fee income on loans that were forgiven.� Excluding PPP loans, Heartland�s net interest margin was 3.76% for the first quarter of 2022, 3.71% for the fourth quarter of 2021 and 3.29% for the first quarter of 2021. Net interest margin continues to be impacted by the excess cash balances at the Federal Reserve Bank. Excluding these excess balances, Heartland�s net interest margin was 3.95% for the first quarter of 2022 and 4.01% for the fourth quarter of 2021.
�Our strategy of patience in deploying excess liquidity in the investment portfolio will benefit us as we ladder into significantly higher yields in the near term,� said McComb.
Heartland�s net interest margin continues to remain above the peer average posted by the Dow Jones U.S. MicroCap Bank Index with total market capitalization under $250 million as of December 31, 2021.*
Provision for Loan Losses
�While we are encouraged with the overall performance in the loan portfolio, and economic indicators in our markets remain strong, we continue to make additions to the allowance for loan losses to reflect the steady level of new loan growth,� said McComb.
Heartland recorded a $480,000 provision for loan losses in the first quarter of 2022, which was the same amount recorded in both the preceding quarter and the year ago quarter.
Noninterest income decreased 11.7% to $3.3 million in the first quarter of 2022, compared to $3.7 million in the first quarter a year ago, and decreased 13.9% compared to $3.8 million in the preceding quarter. Gains on sale of loans and originated mortgage servicing rights decreased 55.9% to $683,000 in the first quarter of 2022, compared to $1.6�million in the first quarter a year ago, and decreased 49.0% compared to $1.3 million in the preceding quarter.
�The mortgage market continued to be strong for long term mortgage originations through the first quarter of 2022, although lower refinance activity has caused total volumes to decrease and increased competition has led to a tightening in gain on sale margins,� said Almendinger.
Heartland�s first quarter noninterest expenses totaled $10.6 million, compared to $10.4 million in the preceding quarter and $9.6 million in the first quarter a year ago. The increase compared to the year ago quarter was primarily due to deferred expenses associated with PPP loans originated during the first quarter of 2021, that resulted in a $1.2 million reduction to noninterest expense during the first quarter of 2021. Salary and employee benefit expenses, the largest component of noninterest expense, were $6.9 million in the first quarter of 2022, compared to $6.5 million in the fourth quarter of 2021 and $5.2 million in the first quarter of 2021. Excluding the above-mentioned deferred expenses associated with PPP loan originations, salary expenses ex PPP would have been $6.4 million in the first quarter of 2021. �The modest increase in noninterest expenses during the quarter is primarily a result of higher production-related compensation and our expansion into the Cincinnati market during the preceding quarter,� said Almendinger. �We now have the infrastructure and many talented employees in place to facilitate organic growth, and as a result were able to expand our client base and our operations without significantly increasing our operating expenses.�
The efficiency ratio for the first quarter of 2022 was 65.9%, compared to 60.5% for the preceding quarter and 60.9% for the first quarter of 2021.
Income Tax Provision
In the first quarter of 2022, Heartland recorded $952,000 in state and federal income tax expense for an effective tax rate of 19.1%, compared to $1.3 million, or 20.5% in the fourth quarter of 2021 and $1.1 million, or 18.6% in the first quarter a year ago.
*As of December 31, 2021, the Dow Jones U.S. MicroCap Bank Index tracked 161 banks with total common market capitalization under $250 million for the following ratios: NIM* of 3.23%.
At March 31, 2022, the allowance for loan losses (ALLL) was $15.5 million, or 1.34% of total loans, compared to $15.0�million, or 1.28% of total loans at December 31, 2021, and $14.6 million, or 1.28% of total loans a year ago. As of March�31,�2022, the ALLL represented 1,636.7% of nonaccrual loans, compared to 924.9% three months earlier and 324.5% one year earlier.
Nonaccrual loans decreased 41.7% to $944,000 at March 31, 2022, compared to $1.6 million at December�31,�2021, and decreased 79.1% when compared to $4.5 million at March 31, 2021. Heartland had net loan recoveries of $5,000 at March�31, 2022. This compared to $133,000 in net loan recoveries at December 31, 2021, and $22,000 in net loan recoveries at March 31, 2021.�� There was $383,000 in loans past due 90 days and still accruing at March�31,�2022, compared to $16,000 at December 31, 2021, and $18,000 at March�31,�2021.
Heartland�s performing restructured loans, that were not included in nonaccrual loans, totaled $5.1 million at March�31,�2022, compared to $5.1 million at December 31, 2021. Borrowers who are in financial difficulty, and who have been granted concessions, including interest rate reductions, term extensions, or payment alterations, are categorized as restructured loans.
There was $5,000 in other real estate owned and other non-performing assets on the books at March 31, 2022, unchanged from three months earlier and one year earlier. Non-performing assets (NPAs), consisting of non-performing loans and loans past due 90 days or more, decreased 18.7% to $1.3 million, or 0.09% of total assets inclusive of PPP loans, at March 31, 2022, compared to $1.6 million, or 0.11% of total assets, at December 31, 2021, and decreased 70.6% when compared to $4.5 million, or 0.29% of total assets a year ago.
