TRUSTMARK CORP MANAGEMENT'S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS OF FINANCIAL CONDITION AND RESULTS OF OPERATIONS (form 10-Q)

05/05/2022 | 05:55pm EDT

The following provides a narrative discussion and analysis of Trustmark Corporation's (Trustmark) financial condition and results of operations. This discussion should be read in conjunction with the unaudited consolidated financial statements and the supplemental financial data included in Part I. Item 1. - Financial Statements of this report.

Description of Business

Trustmark, a Mississippi business corporation incorporated in 1968, is a bank holding company headquartered in Jackson, Mississippi. Trustmark's principal subsidiary is Trustmark National Bank (TNB), initially chartered by the State of Mississippi in 1889. At March 31, 2022, TNB had total assets of $17.439 billion, which represented approximately 99.99% of the consolidated assets of Trustmark.

Through TNB and its other subsidiaries, Trustmark operates as a financial services organization providing banking and other financial solutions through 179 offices and 2,725 full-time equivalent associates (measured at March 31, 2022) located in the states of Alabama, Florida (primarily in the northwest or "Panhandle" region of that state, which is referred to herein as Trustmark's Florida market), Mississippi, Tennessee (in the Memphis and Northern Mississippi regions, which are collectively referred to herein as Trustmark's Tennessee market), and Texas (primarily in Houston, which is referred to herein as Trustmark's Texas market). Trustmark's operations are managed along three operating segments: General Banking Segment, Wealth Management Segment and Insurance Segment. For a complete overview of Trustmark's business, see the section captioned "The Corporation" included in Part I. Item 1. - Business of Trustmark's Annual Report on Form 10-K for its fiscal year ended December 31, 2021 (2021 Annual Report).

Executive Overview

Trustmark has been committed to meeting the banking and financial needs of its customers and communities for over 130 years, and remains focused on providing support, advice and solutions to meet its customers' unique needs. Trustmark's financial performance during the three months ended March 31, 2022 reflected linked-quarter expansion in both net interest income and noninterest income and solid loan growth, with growth in loans held for investment (LHFI) of $149.3 million, or 1.5%, as well as strong credit quality and disciplined expense management. Trustmark remains focused on expanding customer relationships, which was reflected in the solid performance of its banking, insurance and wealth management businesses in the first quarter of 2022.

Trustmark is committed to managing the franchise for the long term, supporting investments to promote profitable revenue growth, realigning delivery channels to support changing customer preferences as well as reengineering and efficiency opportunities to enhance long-term shareholder value. Trustmark's capital position remained solid, reflecting the consistent profitability of its diversified financial services businesses. Trustmark's Board of Directors declared a quarterly cash dividend of $0.23 per share. The dividend is payable June 15, 2022, to shareholders of record on June 1, 2022.

Recent Economic and Industry Developments

Economic activity continued to improve during the first three months of 2022 as COVID-19 cases declined across the United States and restrictions were lifted; however, economic concerns remain as a result of the cumulative weight of uncertainty regarding the long-term effectiveness of the COVID-19 vaccine and the potential economic impact of recent geopolitical developments, such as Russia's invasion of Ukraine and COVID-19 lockdowns in China. Doubts surrounding the near-term direction of global markets and the potential impact on the United States economy are expected to persist for the near term. While Trustmark's customer base is wholly domestic, international economic conditions affect domestic economic conditions, and thus may have an impact upon Trustmark's financial condition or results of operations.

Market interest rates have begun to rise during 2022 after an extended period at historical lows. In March 2022, the FRB raised the target federal funds rate for the first time in three years to a range of 0.25% to 0.50% and signaled the possibility of additional rate increases throughout 2022. In addition, in March 2022 the FRB increased the interest that it pays on reserves from 0.10% to 0.40%. The prolonged period of reduced interest rates has had and may continue to have an adverse effect on net interest income and margins and profitability for financial institutions, including Trustmark. As interest rates increase, so will competitive pressures on the deposit cost of funds. It is not possible to predict the pace and magnitude of changes in interest rates, or the impact rate changes will have on Trustmark's results of operations.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

In the April 2022 "Summary of Commentary on Current Economic Conditions by Federal Reserve District," the twelve Federal Reserve Districts' reports suggested that economic activity during the reporting period (covering the period from February 18, 2022 through April 11, 2022) strengthened further, displaying a moderate rate of growth; however, several Districts noted that the pace of growth continued to be constrained by supply chain disruptions and labor shortages. Reports by the twelve Federal Reserve Districts (Districts) noted the following during the reporting period:

Consumer spending accelerated among retail and non-financial service firms as COVID-19 cases tapered across the country. Manufacturing activity was solid overall across most Districts, but supply chain backlogs, labor market tightness and elevated input costs continued to pose challenges on firms' abilities to meet demand. Vehicle sales remained largely constrained by low inventories.

Commercial real estate activity accelerated modestly as office occupancy and retail activity increased. Districts' contacts reported continued strong demand for residential real estate but limited supply.

Agricultural conditions were mixed across regions. Farmers were supported by surging crop prices, but drought conditions were a challenge in some Districts and increasing input costs were squeezing producer margins across the nation.

Inflationary pressures remained strong, with firms continuing to pass swiftly rising input costs through to customers. Contacts across Districts, particularly within the manufacturing sector, noted steep increases in raw materials, transportation and labor costs. In multiple Districts, contacts reported spikes in prices for energy, metals and agricultural commodities following the Russian invasion of Ukraine, and several noted that the COVID-19 lockdowns in China had worsened supply chain disruptions. Firms in most Districts expected inflationary pressures to continue over the coming months.

Employment increased at a moderate rate as demand for workers was high, but labor growth was dampened by the overall lack of available workers, though several Districts reported signs of modest improvement in worker availability. Many firms reported significant turnover as workers left for higher wages and more flexible job schedules. Persistent labor demand continued to fuel strong wage growth, particularly for workers willing to change jobs. Firms reported that inflationary pressures were also contributing to higher wages and that higher wages were doing little to alleviate widespread job vacancies.

Outlooks for future growth were clouded by the uncertainty created by recent geopolitical developments and rising prices.

Reports by the Federal Reserve's Sixth District, Atlanta (which includes Trustmark's Alabama, Florida and Mississippi market regions), Eighth District, St. Louis (which includes Trustmark's Tennessee market region), and Eleventh District, Dallas (which includes Trustmark's Texas market region), noted similar findings for the reporting period as those discussed above. The Federal Reserve's Sixth District also reported that while housing demand was strong, persistently low inventory levels, higher home prices and rising mortgage rates constrained sales and further diminished affordability. The Federal Reserve's Sixth District also noted that conditions at financial institutions were steady as loan growth improved, with consumer lending experiencing the strongest growth among loan portfolios, and deposit balances were flat. The Federal Reserve's Eighth District noted that banking contacts reported a slight increase in loan demand and expected competition among lenders to put downward pressure on rates. The Federal Reserve's Eleventh District also reported that activity in the energy sector expanded further in part due to the recent run-up in energy prices and increased oilfield activity, rig count and oil and natural gas production. The Federal Reserve's Eleventh District also noted that despite increased uncertainty, outlooks were optimistic within the energy sector, bolstered by strong consumer demand and expectations of limited global supply growth in 2022.

Financial Highlights

Trustmark reported net income of $29.2 million, or basic and diluted earnings per share (EPS) of $0.47, in the first quarter of 2022, compared to $52.0 million, or basic and diluted EPS of $0.82, in the first quarter of 2021. Trustmark's reported performance during the quarter ended March 31, 2022 produced a return on average tangible equity of 9.05%, a return on average assets of 0.68%, an average equity to average assets ratio of 9.79% and a dividend payout ratio of 48.94%, compared to a return on average tangible equity of 15.56%, a return on average assets of 1.26%, an average equity to average assets ratio of 10.55% and a dividend payout ratio of 28.05% during the quarter ended March 31, 2021.

Total revenue, which is defined as net interest income plus noninterest income, for the three months ended March 31, 2022 was $153.5 million, a decrease of $9.5 million, or 5.8%, when compared to the same time period in 2021. The decrease in total revenue for the first quarter of 2022 when compared to the same time period in 2021, resulted from a decline in noninterest income, primarily due to a decline in mortgage banking, net, as well as a decline in net interest income, primarily due to a decrease in interest and fees on PPP loans, partially offset by an increase in interest on securities and a decline in interest on deposits. These factors are discussed in further detail below.

Net interest income for the three months ended March 31, 2022 totaled $99.3 million, a decrease of $3.0 million, or 2.9%, when compared to the same time period in 2021. Interest income totaled $103.7 million for the three months ended March 31, 2022, a decrease


                                       52

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

of $5.8 million, or 5.3%, when compared to the same time period in 2021, principally due to a decline in interest and fees on PPP loans, primarily due to PPP loans forgiven by the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) as well as the PPP loans sold during the second quarter of 2021, partially offset by an increase in interest on securities primarily due to securities purchased. Interest expense totaled $4.4 million for the three months ended March 31, 2022, a decrease of $2.8 million, or 38.8%, when compared to the same time period in 2021, principally due to the decline in interest on deposits as a result of lower interest rates.

Noninterest income for the three months ended March 31, 2022 totaled $54.1 million, a decrease of $6.5 million, or 10.7%, when compared to the same time period in 2021, primarily due to a decline in mortgage banking, net, partially offset by increases in service charges on deposit accounts and insurance commissions. Mortgage banking, net totaled $9.9 million for the three months ended March 31, 2022, a decrease of $10.9 million, or 52.5%, when compared to the same time period in 2021, principally due to a decline in the gain on sales of loans, net. Service charges on deposit accounts totaled $9.5 million for the three months ended March 31, 2022, an increase of $2.1 million, or 28.5%, when compared to the same time period in 2021 principally due to an increase in the amount of non-sufficient funds (NSF) and overdraft occurrences on consumer demand deposit accounts (DDAs) and interest checking accounts and service charges on consumer interest checking accounts, primarily as a result of an increase in customer transactions with the further abatement of pandemic-related concerns. Insurance commissions totaled $14.1 million for the three months ended March 31, 2022, an increase of $1.6 million, or 13.2%, when compared to the same time period in 2021, principally due to growth in commissions from commercial property and casualty business.

Noninterest expense for the three months ended March 31, 2022 totaled $121.5 million, relatively unchanged when compared to the same time period in 2021, as an increase in services and fees was largely offset by a decline in salaries and employee benefits. Services and fees totaled $24.5 million for the three months ended March 31, 2022, an increase of $2.0 million, or 8.8%, when compared to the same time period in 2021, primarily due to an increase in data processing charges related to software. Salaries and employee benefits totaled $69.6 million for the three months ended March 31, 2022, a decrease of $1.6 million, or 2.2%, when compared to the same time period in 2021, principally due to declines in commission expense related to mortgage loan originations and time-based restricted stock expense.

Trustmark's PCL on LHFI for the three months ended March 31, 2022 totaled a negative $860 thousand, a decrease in the negative PCL of $9.6 million, or 91.8%, when compared to the same time period in 2021. The negative PCL on LHFI for the first quarter of 2022 primarily reflected a decline in required reserves as a result of improved credit quality and improvements in the macroeconomic forecasting variables used in the ACL modeling, partially offset by increases in specific reserves for individually analyzed LHFI and reserves related to loan growth. The PCL on off-balance sheet credit exposures totaled a negative $1.1 million for the three months ended March 31, 2022, a decrease in the negative PCL of $8.3 million, or 88.2%, when compared to the same time period in 2021. The negative PCL on off-balance credit primarily reflected a decline in required reserves as a result of a decrease in the unfunded balances partially offset by an increase in reserves as a result of changes in the total reserve rate used in the calculation of the ACL on off-balance sheet credit exposures. Please see the section captioned "Provision for Credit Losses" for additional information regarding the PCL on LHFI and off-balance sheet credit exposures.

At March 31, 2022, nonperforming assets totaled $67.6 million, an increase of $331 thousand, or 0.5%, compared to December 31, 2021, as an increase in nonaccrual LHFI was largely offset by a decline in other real estate. Nonaccrual LHFI totaled $64.4 million at March 31, 2022, an increase of $1.7 million, or 2.7%, relative to December 31, 2021, primarily due to one large commercial credit in the Texas market region that was placed on nonaccrual status during the first quarter of 2022, partially offset by reductions, pay-offs and charge-offs of nonaccrual loans in the Texas, Mississippi and Tennessee market regions. Other real estate totaled $3.2 million at March 31, 2022, a decline of $1.4 million, or 30.1%, compared to December 31, 2021, principally due to properties sold in the Mississippi market region.

LHFI totaled $10.397 billion at March 31, 2022, an increase of $149.3 million, or 1.5%, compared to December 31, 2021. The increase in LHFI during the first three months of 2022 was primarily due to net growth in LHFI secured by real estate in Trustmark's Mississippi, Texas and Tennessee market regions, commercial and industrial LHFI in the Mississippi and Alabama market regions and state and other political subdivision LHFI in the Mississippi and Texas market regions, partially offset by declines in commercial and industrial LHFI in Trustmark's Tennessee and Texas market regions, other commercial LHFI across all five market regions and state and other political subdivision LHFI in the Alabama market region. For additional information regarding changes in LHFI and comparative balances by loan category, see the section captioned "LHFI."

Management has continued its practice of maintaining excess funding capacity to provide Trustmark with adequate liquidity for its ongoing operations. In this regard, Trustmark benefits from its strong deposit base, its highly liquid investment portfolio and its access to funding from a variety of external funding sources such as upstream federal funds lines, FHLB advances and, on a limited basis, brokered deposits. See the section captioned "Capital Resources and Liquidity" for further discussion of the components of Trustmark's excess funding capacity.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Total deposits were $15.113 billion at March 31, 2022, an increase of $26.1 million, or 0.2%, compared to December 31, 2021. During the first three months of 2022, noninterest-bearing deposits decreased $32.0 million, or 0.7%, reflecting a decline in public DDAs partially offset by an increase in commercial DDAs. Interest-bearing deposits increased $58.1 million, or 0.6%, during the first three months of 2022, primarily due to growth in consumer and commercial Money Market Deposit Accounts (MMDA) as well as consumer savings accounts, partially offset by declines in all categories of interest checking accounts and consumer certificates of deposits.
