Results in the quarter reflect a provision for credit losses of $76.0 million under the Current Expected Credit Loss (CECL) accounting standard effective January 1, 2020 compared to a provision for credit losses of $8.6 million in prior year.

"During these uncertain, challenging and unprecedented times, Webster bankers have once again stepped up to take care of our customers, our communities and, importantly, each other.  I am so proud of every one of our 3,400 bankers," said John R.

"Webster's strong capital and liquidity positions enable us to support our customers and communities during this trying time," said Glenn MacInnes, executive vice president and chief financial officer. "Our Common Equity Tier 1 capital ratio of 11 percent exceeds the regulatory well-capitalized level by $1 billion, and our loan-to-deposit ratio of 85 percent reflects our funding strength."

Note: In 1Q20, segment net Interest income was updated to reflect changes in the funds transfer pricing methodology related to allocated capital.  Prior periods were restated to reflect the change.

Pre-tax, pre-provision net revenue decreased $8.5 million to $28.1 million in the quarter as compared to prior year. Net interest income decreased $6.8 million to $99.5 million, due to declining interest rates on loans coupled with decreasing credit value of deposits; partially offset by balance growth in the loan and deposit portfolios. Non-interest income increased $2.2 million driven by growth in fees from mortgage banking, investment services, and interest rate hedging activities. This growth was partially offset by reductions in deposit-related service charges and the impact of gains from asset sales that occurred in the prior year. Non-interest expense increased $3.9 million to $99.0 million resulting from higher employee-related expenses, continued investments in technology, and other corporate overhead; offset by lower occupancy, legal, and card processing costs.

Consolidated financial performance:

Quarterly net interest income compared to the first quarter of 2019:

  • Net interest income was $230.8 million compared to $241.6 million.
  • Net interest margin was 3.23 percent compared to 3.74 percent. The yield on interest-earning assets declined by 59 basis points, and the cost of interest-bearing liabilities declined by 10 basis points.
  • Average interest-earning assets totaled $28.9 billion and grew by $2.9 billion, or 11.0 percent.
  • Average loans totaled $20.3 billion and grew by $1.8 billion, or 9.8 percent.
  • Average deposits totaled $24.1 billion and grew by $1.5 billion, or 6.8 percent.

Quarterly provision for credit losses:

  • The provision for credit losses, which was calculated under the Current Expected Credit Loss (CECL) accounting standard effective January 1, 2020, was $76.0 million, compared to $6.0 million in the prior quarter and $8.6 million a year ago. The increase compared to the prior periods is primarily due to the adoption of CECL and the impact of COVID-19.
  • Net charge-offs were $7.8 million, compared to $6.1 million in the prior quarter and $9.6 million a year ago. The ratio of net charge-offs to average loans on an annualized basis was 0.15 percent, compared to 0.12 percent in the prior quarter and 0.21 percent a year ago.
  • The allowance for credit losses on loans and leases represented 1.60 percent of total loans at March 31, 2020, compared to 1.04 percent at December 31, 2019 and 1.12 percent at March 31, 2019. The allowance for credit losses on loans and leases reflects a January 1, 2020 transition adjustment of $57.6 million related to the adoption of the CECL accounting standard and represented 206 percent of nonperforming loans at March 31, 2020 compared to 139 percent at December 31, 2019 and 133 percent at March 31, 2019.

Quarterly non-interest income compared to the first quarter of 2019:

  • Total non-interest income was $73.4 million, compared to $68.6 million, an increase of $4.8 million. This reflects an increase of $2.8 million of other income primarily due to client hedging activity offset by losses on miscellaneous investments, an increase of $2.1 million in mortgage banking activities primarily due to a decline in mortgage interest rates driving higher origination volume and $1.1 million in wealth and investment services. These increases were offset by a decrease in loan related fees of $1.3 million primarily due to lower prepayment fees and higher mortgage servicing rights costs.

Quarterly non-interest expense compared to the first quarter of 2019:

  • Total non-interest expense was $178.8 million, compared to $175.7 million, an increase of $3.2 million. The increase reflects increases of $4.1 million in compensation and benefits due to annual merit increases and temporary help partially offset by lower variable based compensation and $2.1 million in technology and equipment due to continued infrastructure investment. Offsetting these increases was a decrease of $3.4 million in other expenses primarily due to decreased pension costs, and a reduction in the reserve for unfunded commitments.

Quarterly income taxes compared to the first quarter of 2019:

  • Income tax expense was $11.1 million compared to $26.1 million and the effective tax rate was 22.6 percent compared to 20.8 percent.
  • The higher effective tax rate in the quarter reflects a net discrete tax benefit recognized during the period a year ago.

Investment securities:

  • Total investment securities were $8.5 billion, compared to $8.2 billion at December 31, 2019 and $7.5 billion at March 31, 2019. The carrying value of the available-for-sale portfolio included $3.1 million of net unrealized gains, compared to $24.4 million at December 31, 2019 and $58.6 million of net unrealized losses at March 31, 2019. The carrying value of the held-to-maturity portfolio does not reflect $156.3 million of net unrealized gains, compared to $86.7 million at December 31, 2019 and $46.8 million of net unrealized losses at March 31, 2019.

Loans:

  • Total loans were $20.9 billion, compared to $20.0 billion at December 31, 2019 and $18.8 billion at March 31, 2019. Compared to December 31, 2019, commercial loans increased by $685.1 million, commercial real estate loans increased by $173.1 million, and residential mortgages increased by $18.8 million, while consumer loans decreased by $22.5 million.
  • Compared to a year ago, commercial real estate loans increased by $1.131 billion, commercial loans increased by $715.0 million, and residential mortgages increased by $359.7 million, while consumer loans decreased by $128.1 million.
  • Loan originations for portfolio were $1.195 billion, compared to $1.919 billion in the prior quarter and $1.132 billion a year ago. In addition, $60 million of residential loans were originated for sale in the quarter, compared to $94 million in the prior quarter and $33 million a year ago.

Asset quality:

  • Total nonperforming loans were $162.3 million, or 0.78 percent of total loans, compared to $150.9 million, or 0.75 percent of total loans, at December 31, 2019 and $158.9 million, or 0.84 percent of total loans, at March 31, 2019. Total paying nonperforming loans were $61.9 million, compared to $59.0 million at December 31, 2019 and $38.6 million at March 31, 2019.

Core deposits to total deposits were 87.8 percent, compared to 86.7 percent at December 31, 2019 and 85.3 percent at March 31, 2019. The loan to deposit ratio was 85.2 percent, compared to 85.9 percent at December 31, 2019 and 82.7 percent at March 31, 2019.
  • Total borrowings were $3.6 billion, compared to $3.5 billion at December 31, 2019 and $2.2 billion at March 31, 2019.

Capital:

  • The return on average common shareholders' equity and the return on average tangible common shareholders' equity were 4.75 percent and 5.95 percent, respectively, compared to 14.01 percent and 17.70 percent, respectively, in the first quarter of 2019.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

In addition to results presented in accordance with GAAP, this press release contains certain non-GAAP financial measures. A reconciliation of net income and other performance ratios, as adjusted, is included in the accompanying selected financial highlights table.

We believe that providing certain non-GAAP financial measures provides investors with information useful in understanding our financial performance, our performance trends and financial position. We utilize these measures for internal planning and forecasting purposes. We, as well as securities analysts, investors, and other interested parties, also use these measures to compare peer company operating performance. We believe that our presentation and discussion, together with the accompanying reconciliations, provides a complete understanding of factors and trends affecting our business and allows investors to view performance in a manner similar to management. These non-GAAP measures should not be considered a substitute for GAAP basis measures and results, and we strongly encourage investors to review our consolidated financial statements in their entirety and not to rely on any single financial measure. Because non-GAAP financial measures are not standardized, it may not be possible to compare these financial measures with other companies' non-GAAP financial measures having the same or similar names.
