Blue Ridge Bankshares, Inc. Announces 2024 First Quarter Results

April 30, 2024

Completed capital raise of $150 million private placement, which closed subsequent to the end of the quarter, to help fund business transformation

Solidified compliance and risk management functions with key hires

Regulatory remediation efforts on track

RICHMOND, Va., April 30, 2024 /PRNewswire/ -- Blue Ridge Bankshares, Inc. (the "Company") (NYSE American: BRBS), the holding company of Blue Ridge Bank, National Association ("Blue Ridge Bank" or the "Bank") and BRB Financial Group, Inc. ("BRB Financial Group"), today announced financial results for the quarter ended March 31, 2024.

For the quarter ended March 31, 2024, the Company reported a net loss of $2.9 million, or $0.15 per diluted common share, compared to a net loss of $5.8 million, or $0.30 per diluted common share, for the fourth quarter of 2023, and net income of $4.0 million, or $0.21 per diluted common share, for the first quarter of 2023. 

A Message From Blue Ridge Bankshares, Inc. President and CEO, G. William "Billy" Beale:

"Our efforts during the first quarter further reflect the deep commitment of this leadership team to aggressively pursue the steps necessary to transform Blue Ridge Bank, restore it to its community banking roots, and put it on a path to profitable growth. Achieving this goal means advancing several, simultaneous strategies – from filling vital leadership roles, to advancing our regulatory remediation efforts, to formulating strategic growth and capital plans, to more deeply examining ways to be more efficient.

"During the first quarter of 2024, we once again made significant, additional progress across each of these strategic areas.

  • "We filled two leadership positions that are essential to bolstering our risk management and compliance functions. Grace Vallacchi joined us as Deputy Chief Risk Officer and Jerry Maloney joined as Chief Compliance Officer. Together, and along with other key hires over the past several months, these highly experienced leaders will bring heightened levels of rigor to these critical functions.
  • "We made substantial, additional progress on our regulatory remediation efforts. We have developed a critical action plan around these efforts and believe that we have completed all tasks to date mandated by our primary banking regulator, the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (the "OCC"). Our persistent effort to further wind down our banking-as-a-service ("BaaS") fintech depository business is on track, if not slightly ahead of schedule. Notably, our deposits declined during the quarter, reflecting these actions. However, our core consumer and commercial deposits – the heartbeat of a successful community-focused bank – remained relatively stable.
  • "Our leadership team developed a strategic plan, in two parts, to guide our organization – one to guide us through the full remediation of the Bank's regulatory issues and its BaaS exposure, and the other to plot our path forward as a core community bank after our remediation efforts are accomplished, with a focus on profitable growth.
  • "We further reinforced our capital position. Subsequent to the end of the first quarter, we closed on a private placement of the Company's common and preferred stock for gross proceeds of $150 million. This capital infusion provides a vital bridge and additional financial flexibility to help us accomplish our transformation. Furthermore, as an element of the private placement, we are developing an asset resolution plan to reposition portions of our balance sheet to provide additional liquidity and enhance future performance.

"We are on a journey and, while we expect 2024 to be a transitional year, we expect that the combination of the initiatives above will begin to result in incremental operating improvement as we move through the year. I thank our shareholders, our employees, and our communities for their resilience and support. I am pleased with the milestones we have achieved thus far and look forward to making more progress in the months ahead."

OCC Consent Order and Private Placement Stock Offering
On January 25, 2024, the Company announced that the Bank had consented to the issuance of a consent order (the "Consent Order") by the OCC. The Consent Order replaces the formal written agreement entered into by the Bank and the OCC on August 29, 2022. A complete copy of the Consent Order was included in a Current Report on a Form 8-K filed by the Company with the Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC") on January 25, 2024 and can be accessed on the SEC's website (www.sec.gov) and the Company's website (www.mybrb.com).

Subsequent to the end of the first quarter, on April 3, 2024, the Company announced it had closed on a private placement of the Company's common and preferred stock for gross proceeds of $150 million (the "Private Placement"). This Private Placement amends and replaces the previously proposed private placement for $150 million of the Company's common stock that was announced on December 22, 2023.

The Company intends to use the capital from the Private Placement to propel its near-term strategic initiatives, which include repositioning business lines, supporting organic growth, and further enhancing the Bank's capital levels, including compliance with the minimum capital ratios set forth in the Consent Order.

Q1 2024 Highlights
(Comparisons for First Quarter 2024 are relative to Fourth Quarter 2023 unless otherwise noted.

Net Income:

  • The net loss in the quarter was $2.9 million, or $0.15 per diluted common share, compared to a net loss of $5.8 million, or $0.30 per diluted common share, for the prior quarter. Improvement in the quarter resulted primarily from a recovery of credit losses of $1.0 million, a positive fair value adjustment on mortgage servicing right assets of $729 thousand, and a loss on the sale of an equity investment recorded in the fourth quarter of 2023 of $1.6 million. Offsetting these improvements were lower net interest income of $1.4 million and higher noninterest expense of $1.9 million.

Asset Quality:

  • Nonperforming loans, which include nonaccrual loans and loans past due 90 days or more and accruing interest, improved to $53.2 million, or 1.73% of total assets, at quarter end compared to $63.1 million, or 2.02% of total assets, at the prior quarter end. The decline in nonperforming loans primarily reflects the payoff of a commercial real estate loan and progress on the receipt of cash payments related to specialty finance loans that had been placed on nonaccrual status in prior periods.
  • These nonperforming specialty finance loans had carrying values totaling $29.8 million as of March 31, 2024, for which the Company held reserves of $9.6 million. Of the $34.2 million of these loans reported as of December 31, 2023, the Company received cash payments totaling $3.0 million in the first quarter of 2024 and an additional $750 thousand subsequent to March 31, 2024, pursuant to a forbearance agreement under which the largest of the specialty finance loans is subject. An additional specialty finance loan paid in full in the first quarter of 2024. These cash payments were applied to the book principal balance of the loan, with the excess recorded as interest income.
  • The recovery of credit losses was $1.0 million compared to a provision for credit losses of $2.8 million for the prior quarter. The recovery in the quarter was due to lower balances of unfunded loan commitments, while no provision for credit losses on loans held for investment was recorded. Net loan charge-offs were $0.9 million in the quarter, representing an annualized net charge-off rate of 0.14% of average loans held for investment, compared to $17.3 million, representing an annualized net charge-off rate of 2.84% of average loans held for investment, for the prior quarter. The decrease in net charge-offs was primarily attributable to specialty finance loans charged off in the prior quarter.
  • The allowance for credit losses ("ACL") as a percentage of total loans held for investment was 1.46% at quarter end compared to 1.48% at the prior quarter end. Specific reserves associated with the aforementioned specialty finance loans totaled $9.6 million at both March 31, 2024 and December 31, 2023.

Capital:

  • The ratio of tangible stockholders' equity to tangible total assets was 5.8%1, unchanged from the prior quarter end. Tangible book value per common share was $9.041, compared to $9.471 at the prior quarter end.
  • For the quarter ended March 31, 2024, the Bank's tier 1 leverage ratio, tier 1 risk-based capital ratio, common equity tier 1 capital ratio, and total risk-based capital ratio were 7.44%, 9.28%, 9.28%, and 10.51%, respectively, compared to 7.49%, 9.09%, 9.09%, and 10.25%, respectively, at the prior quarter end. Such ratios do not include the effect of the Private Placement, which was completed subsequent to quarter end.

Net Interest Income / Net Interest Margin:

  • Net interest income was $20.3 million, a decline of $1.4 million from the prior quarter, primarily due to higher funding costs, which increased by 12 basis points, due to rates paid on and volume of wholesale time deposits. Net interest margin was 2.75% compared to 2.92% in the prior quarter.

Balance Sheet:

  • Total deposit balances decreased $100.3 million from the prior quarter end, due primarily to a decline in fintech-related balances of $162.9 million, partially offset by an increase of brokered time deposits of $48.0 million. In addition, of the decline in fintech-related balances, approximately $25.0 million of fintech-related accounts were converted as direct customers of the Bank. Core deposits remained relatively stable in the quarter.
  • Deposits related to fintech relationships were $303.0 million at March 31, 2024, compared to $465.9 million at the prior quarter end. Of the decline, approximately $100.0 million were BaaS deposits, while the remainder were corporate deposits. Fintech-related deposits represented 12.3% of total deposits at March 31, 2024 compared to 18.2% of total deposits at the prior quarter end. Excluding wholesale funding, deposits related to fintech relationships represented 14.6% and 21.0% of total deposits at March 31, 2024 and December 31, 2023, respectively. Estimated uninsured deposits as a percentage of total deposits were 22.4% as of both periods.
  • Loans held for investment were $2.39 billion, a decline of $36.9 million from the prior quarter end, as the Bank purposefully reduced assets to meet the liquidity need of the BaaS operations wind down. The held for investment loan-to-deposit ratio measured 97.1% at quarter end compared to 94.7% at the prior quarter end.

Noninterest Income / Noninterest Expense:

  • Noninterest income was $7.8 million compared to $4.1 million for the prior quarter, an improvement of $3.7 million. Higher noninterest income was primarily due to fair value adjustments on mortgage servicing right assets, which were a positive change of $2.8 million, due to the change in future interest rate expectations, and a $1.6 million realized loss on the sale of an equity investment in a fintech company in the fourth quarter of 2023.
  • Noninterest expense was $32.5 million compared to $30.6 million for the prior quarter, an increase of $1.9 million. The increase was primarily due to higher salaries and employee benefits expense, while regulatory remediation expenses declined. Salaries and employee benefits in the first quarter of 2024 reflected key new hires, a charge upon the retirement of the former leader of the mortgage business, and incentive accruals, while the prior quarter included negligible incentive expense.

Income Statement:

Net Interest Income

Net interest income was $20.3 million for the first quarter of 2024, compared to $21.8 million for the fourth quarter of 2023, and $25.2 million for the first quarter of 2023. The decline from year end was primarily attributable to lower interest and fee income on loans due to lower average balances and higher interest expense on deposits due to higher average balances of and rates paid on time deposits, partially offset by lower average balances and rates paid on interest-bearing demand accounts. Most BaaS deposits are in interest-bearing demand accounts.

Total interest income was $42.5 million for the first quarter of 2024, $43.2 million for the fourth quarter of 2023, and $40.9 million for the first quarter of 2023. The decline relative to the fourth quarter of 2023 was relatively modest, while the increase relative to the first quarter of 2023 reflects higher average balances of and yields on interest-earning asset balances, partially offset by lower benefit from purchase accounting adjustments. The yield on average loans held for investment was 6.29% for the first quarter of 2024, compared to 6.31% for the fourth quarter of 2023, and 5.88% for the first quarter of 2023.

Total interest expense was $22.2 million for the first quarter of 2024, compared to $21.4 million for the fourth quarter of 2023, and $15.7 million for the first quarter of 2023. The increase relative to the prior quarter and the year-ago period reflects higher overall funding costs due to higher market interest rates and greater balances of and a shift in the mix of average interest-bearing liabilities, primarily to higher-cost wholesale funding.

Average balances of interest-earning assets decreased $12.6 million to $2.97 billion in the first quarter of 2024, relative to the prior quarter, and decreased $94.0 million from the year-ago period. Relative to the prior quarter, the decrease reflected a slight decline in average balances of loans held for investment and securities. Relative to the year-ago period, the decrease in average interest-earning asset balances was due primarily to lower average balances of loans held for investment and securities.

Average balances of interest-bearing liabilities increased $48.9 million to $2.41 billion in the first quarter of 2024, relative to the prior quarter, and increased $242.0 million from the year-ago period. Relative to the prior quarter, the increase reflected higher average balances of time deposits, primarily attributable to wholesale funding, partially offset by lower average balances of interest-bearing demand and money market accounts. Relative to the prior year, the increase primarily reflected higher average balances of time deposits.

Cost of funds was 3.03% for the first quarter of 2024, compared to 2.91% for the fourth quarter of 2023, and 2.11% for the first quarter of 2023, while cost of deposits was 2.85%, 2.73%, and 1.74%, for the same respective periods. Higher deposit costs and overall funding costs reflect the impact of higher market interest rates and a shift in the mix of funding. Cost of deposits excluding wholesale deposits was 2.52% for the quarter compared to 2.58% in the prior quarter and 1.70% in the year-ago period.

Net interest margin was 2.75% for the first quarter of 2024 compared to 2.92% and 3.30% for the fourth and first quarters of 2023, respectively. The decline in net interest margin relative to the prior periods reflects the impact of higher interest rates on funding costs and less benefit from purchase accounting adjustments.

Recovery of/Provision for Credit Losses

The Company recorded a recovery of credit losses of $1.0 million for the first quarter of 2024, compared to a provision of $2.8 million for the fourth quarter of 2023, and a recovery of $1.5 million for the first quarter of 2023. The recovery for the first quarter of 2024 was primarily attributable to lower unfunded loan commitments, which declined to $294.6 million at March 31, 2024 from $364.2 million at December 31, 2023. Provision for the fourth quarter of 2023 was primarily attributable to charge-offs and reserve needs for a select group of purchased consumer loans, partially offset by a recovery of credit losses on lower unfunded loan commitments.

Noninterest Income

Noninterest income was $7.8 million for the first quarter of 2024, compared to $4.1 million for the fourth quarter of 2024, and $7.3 million for the first quarter of 2023. The increase relative to the fourth quarter of 2023 was primarily due to positive fair value adjustments on mortgage servicing right assets, partially offset by a lower gain on sale of government guaranteed loans. Additionally, in the fourth quarter of 2023, the Company recognized a $1.6 million loss on the sale of an equity investment in a fintech company.

Noninterest Expense

Noninterest expense was $32.5 million for the first quarter of 2024, compared to $30.6 million for the fourth quarter of 2023, and $28.8 million for the first quarter of 2023. Noninterest expense increased $1.9 million from the prior quarter and increased $3.7 million from the year-ago period. The increase relative to the fourth quarter of 2024 was primarily driven by higher salaries and employee benefits. Higher salaries and employee benefit expenses in the first quarter of 2024 include the addition of key leadership roles, a charge upon the retirement of the leader of the mortgage business, and greater incentive expense. In the fourth quarter of 2024, the Company recorded negligible incentive expense and reversed expenses related to previously issued performance-based restricted stock awards. The increase relative to the year-ago period primarily reflects higher salaries and employee benefits, FDIC insurance assessments, audit and accounting fees, and regulatory remediation expenses. In the fourth quarter of 2023, the Company received a recovery of previously expensed legal costs in connection with the previously reported ESOP litigation.

Balance Sheet:

Loans

Loans held for investment were $2.39 billion at March 31, 2024, compared to $2.43 billion at December 31, 2023, and $2.45 billion at March 31, 2023. The decline of $36.9 million from the prior quarter end was due to the Bank's plan to purposely reduce assets to partially meet the liquidity need of the BaaS operations wind down.

Deposits

Total deposits were $2.47 billion at March 31, 2024, a decrease of $100.3 million from the prior quarter end, and a decrease of $295.3 million from the year-ago period. Relative to the prior quarter end, the decrease reflected lower interest-bearing demand and money market deposits, primarily attributable to fintech relationships and, to a lesser extent, decreases in noninterest bearing deposits, partially offset by higher time deposits, primarily wholesale deposits. Fintech-related deposits declined $162.9 million in the first quarter of 2024 due to fewer BaaS partners and lower fintech-related corporate balances, including those related to one of the Bank's indirect lending partners. Excluding fintech-related deposits and wholesale funding, total deposits during the quarter decreased $22.3 million, or 1.26%, from the prior quarter end.

Noninterest-bearing deposits represented 20.1%, 19.7%, and 21.5% of total deposits at March 31, 2024, December 31, 2023, and March 31, 2023, respectively. Fintech-related balances represented 12.3%, 18.2%, and 28.1% of total deposits as of the same respective periods.

The held for investment loan to deposit ratio was 97.1% at March 31, 2024, compared to 94.7% at the prior quarter end, and 88.8% at the year-ago period-end. The increase on a comparative basis was due primarily to lower total deposit levels attributable to lower fintech-related balances.

Fintech Operations:

Interest and fee income related to fintech partnerships represented approximately $1.7 million, $2.1 million, and $1.5 million of total revenue for the Company for the first quarter of 2024, the fourth quarter of 2023, and the first quarter of 2023, respectively. Deposits related to fintech relationships were $303.0 million at March 31, 2024, compared to $465.9 million at the prior quarter end. Included in deposits related to fintech relationships were assets managed by BRB Financial Group's trust division of $16.4 million as of March 31, 2024.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures:

The accounting and reporting policies of the Company conform to U.S. generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP") and prevailing practices in the banking industry. However, management uses certain non-GAAP measures, including tangible assets, tangible common equity, and tangible book value per share, to supplement the evaluation of the Company's financial condition and performance. Management believes presentations of these non-GAAP financial measures provide useful supplemental information that is essential to a proper understanding of the financial condition, capital position, and operating results of the Company's core businesses. These non-GAAP disclosures should not be viewed as a substitute for financial measures determined in accordance with GAAP, nor are they necessarily comparable to non-GAAP performance measures that may be presented by other companies.
