IRVINE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Pacific Premier Bancorp, Inc. (NASDAQ: PPBI) (the “Company”), the holding company of Pacific Premier Bank (the “Bank”), reported net income for the second quarter of 2019 of $38.5 million, or $0.62 per diluted share, compared with net income of $38.7 million, or $0.62 per diluted share, for the first quarter of 2019 and net income of $27.3 million, or $0.58 per diluted share, for the second quarter of 2018.
For the three months ended June 30, 2019, the Company’s return on average assets (“ROAA”) was 1.33%, return on average equity (“ROAE”) was 7.71% and return on average tangible common equity (“ROATCE”) was 15.16%, compared to 1.34%, 7.78% and 15.45%, respectively, for the three months ended March 31, 2019 and 1.35%, 8.53% and 15.42%, respectively, for the three months ended June 30, 2018. Total assets as of June 30, 2019 were $11.8 billion compared with $11.6 billion at March 31, 2019 and $8.2 billion at June 30, 2018. A reconciliation of the non–U.S. GAAP measure of ROATCE to the U.S. GAAP measure of common stockholders' equity is set forth at the end of this press release.
Steven R. Gardner, Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer of the Company, commented, “Our focus on core deposit growth, proactive capital management, disciplined cost controls and strong asset quality continues to produce a superior level of risk-adjusted profitability. In the second quarter of 2019, we generated a ROAA of 1.33% and a ROATCE of 15.16%. We are making good progress on our core deposit growth initiatives, which resulted in strong inflows in lower-cost, transaction accounts. Organic deposit growth of transaction and non-maturity accounts increased $178.1 million in the current quarter.
“Our high level of profitability and on-going risk management discipline is enabling us to return significant amounts of capital to shareholders. During the second quarter, we took the opportunity to further optimize our capital structure by issuing $125 million in subordinated debt and using a portion of the proceeds to repurchase nearly $66 million of our common stock. We believe that replacing higher cost common equity with lower cost subordinated debt allows us to reduce our overall cost of capital and creates additional value for our shareholders.
“The success we are having in generating lower-cost core deposits provides us the flexibility to prudently increase our loan growth while protecting our net interest margin. Given our improved funding mix and historically consistent ability to originate high-quality loans at attractive yields, we believe we are well-positioned to deliver revenue and earnings growth over the second half of 2019,” said Mr. Gardner.
