NASHVILLE, Tenn.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Pinnacle Financial Partners, Inc. (Nasdaq/NGS: PNFP) reported net income per diluted common share of $1.75 for the quarter ended Sept. 30, 2021, compared to net income per diluted common share of $1.42 for the quarter ended Sept. 30, 2020, an increase of approximately 23.2 percent. Excluding ORE expense for the three months ended Sept. 30, 2021 and 2020 and gains and losses on the sale of investment securities and FHLB restructuring charges for the three months ended Sept. 30, 2020, net income per diluted common share was $1.75 for the three months ended Sept. 30, 2021, compared to $1.45 for the three months ended Sept. 30, 2020, a year-over-year increase of 20.7 percent.

Net income per diluted common share was $5.05 for the nine months ended Sept. 30, 2021, compared to net income per diluted common share of $2.62 for the nine months ended Sept. 30, 2020, an increase of nearly 93 percent. Excluding gains and losses on the sale of investment securities and other real estate (ORE) expense for the nine months ended Sept. 30, 2021 and 2020 and FHLB restructuring charges for the nine months ended Sept. 30, 2020, net income per diluted common share was $5.04 in 2021, compared to $2.72 in 2020, a year-over-year increase of 85.3 percent.

“Despite the ongoing uncertain economic climate, we continue to experience strong organic growth,” said M. Terry Turner, Pinnacle’s president and chief executive officer. “Our business model continued to serve us well during the third quarter. Aggregate loans grew at an annualized rate of 2.8 percent for the quarter, after excluding the impact of PPP forgiveness and paydowns of $664.2 million, other loans increased at an annualized rate of 15.3 percent. We continue to see increased lending opportunities as a result of our now two-decade long focus on hiring the best bankers in our markets.

“We successfully recruited 32 new revenue producers to our firm during the third quarter, and our ongoing recruiting pipelines are as strong as I can remember,” Turner said. “We also remain very excited about our new markets, which include Atlanta, Huntsville and Birmingham, as well as our recent hires in the equipment finance and franchise lending segments. We believe our 2021 end-of-year loan balances should exceed 2020 end-of-year balances by 2 to 5 percent, or by 9 to 12 percent excluding PPP loans. Our current belief is that our 2022 loan growth, with our new markets and the strength of our hiring over the last few years, should produce low-double digit growth assuming an economic environment similar to the one we operate in presently.”

BALANCE SHEET GROWTH:

  • Loans at Sept. 30, 2021 were $23.1 billion, an increase of approximately $581.1 million from Sept. 30, 2020, reflecting year-over-year growth of 2.6 percent. Loans at Sept. 30, 2021 increased approximately $160.5 million from June 30, 2021 reflecting linked-quarter annualized growth of 2.8 percent.

    • Loans at Sept. 30, 2021 include approximately $708.7 million of loans issued pursuant to the Small Business Administration’s (SBA’s) Paycheck Protection Program (PPP), compared to $2.3 billion at Sept. 30, 2020 and $1.4 billion at June 30, 2021. The average yield on these loans was 8.54 percent for the third quarter of 2021, inclusive of $18.5 million of loan fee accretion recognized during the quarter. At Sept. 30, 2021, $29.2 million in SBA PPP loan fees remained, which should be accreted into net interest income over the next nine months as these loans are repaid and/or are forgiven under the PPP.

      • PPP loans decreased by $664.2 million between June 30, 2021 and Sept. 30, 2021.
      • Excluding PPP loans, total loans increased by $824.7 million during the same period, or 15.3 percent on an annualized basis.
    • Average loans were $23.0 billion for the three months ended Sept. 30, 2021, down $193.0 million from the three months ended June 30, 2021, a linked-quarter annualized reduction of 3.3 percent.

      • Excluding the impact of $983.5 million of average PPP loans outstanding during the three months ended Sept. 30, 2021 and $1.9 billion during the three months ended June 30, 2021, average loans were $22.0 billion for the three months ended Sept. 30, 2021, up $752.9 million from $21.3 billion for the three months ended June 30, 2021, a linked-quarter annualized growth rate of 14.2 percent.
    • At Sept. 30, 2021, the remaining discount associated with fair value accounting adjustments on acquired loans was $17.6 million, compared to $20.6 million at June 30, 2021.
  • Deposits at Sept. 30, 2021 were $29.4 billion, an increase of $2.8 billion from Sept. 30, 2020, reflecting year-over-year growth of 10.6 percent. Deposits at Sept. 30, 2021 increased $1.2 billion from June 30, 2021, reflecting a linked-quarter annualized growth rate of 16.3 percent.

    • Average deposits were $28.7 billion for the three months ended Sept. 30, 2021, compared to $28.0 billion for the three months ended June 30, 2021, a linked-quarter annualized growth rate of 10.4 percent.

“During the third quarter, core deposits increased by 23.5 percent over our balances this time last year,” Turner said. “We are very pleased that approximately 53 percent of the increase in core deposit balances is attributable to increases in noninterest bearing deposits. Our research indicates these increases come from many different sources, including PPP and quantitative easing as well as our depositors continuing to grow their deposit balances due to the ongoing uncertainties that exist in the economy. Approximately 15 percent of our average deposit growth this year is from new accounts.”

The firm’s net interest margin was positively impacted by approximately 4 basis points, 3 basis points and 9 basis points, respectively, because of fair value adjustment discount accretion in each of the second and third quarters of 2021 and the third quarter of 2020. There remains $10.8 million of purchase accounting discount accretion as of Sept. 30, 2021.
  • Noninterest income for the quarter ended Sept. 30, 2021 was $104.1 million, compared to $98.2 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2021, a linked-quarter annualized increase of 24.0 percent.
