Irvine, Calif., October 24, 2023 -- Pacific Premier Bancorp, Inc. (NASDAQ: PPBI) (the “Company” or “Pacific Premier”), the holding company of Pacific Premier Bank (the “Bank”), reported net income of $46.0 million, or $0.48 per diluted share, for the third quarter of 2023, compared with net income of $57.6 million, or $0.60 per diluted share, for the second quarter of 2023, and net income of $73.4 million, or $0.77 per diluted share, for the third quarter of 2022.
For the quarter ended September 30, 2023, the Company’s return on average assets (“ROAA”) was 0.88%, return on average equity (“ROAE”) was 6.43%, and return on average tangible common equity (“ROATCE”)(1) was 10.08%, compared to 1.09%, 8.11%, and 12.66%, respectively, for the second quarter of 2023, and 1.35%, 10.57%, and 16.74%, respectively, for the third quarter of 2022. Total assets were $20.28 billion at September 30, 2023, compared to $20.75 billion at June 30, 2023, and $21.62 billion at September 30, 2022.
Steven R. Gardner, Chairman, Chief Executive Officer, and President of the Company, commented, “Our teams continue to deliver solid results in a challenging economic and interest rate environment. We maintained our disciplined focus on prudent and proactive risk, liquidity, and capital management during the quarter. Our relationship managers' extraordinary efforts to deepen existing client relationships and bring new clients into our franchise are producing tangible results. During the quarter, client deposit flows further stabilized in the face of significant pricing competition, and we were able to reduce higher cost brokered deposits by $490 million.
"Our asset quality remained solid during the quarter, as total delinquencies decreased to 0.08% of loans, and non-performing assets were just 0.13% of total assets. Our operating results were impacted by a shared national credit that resulted in two non-relationship loans to one borrower being placed on nonaccrual status during the quarter. This resulted in an interest accrual reversal of $1.7 million and a charge-off of $3.2 million. The borrower on this $13 million credit continues to make payments. Our total shared national credit portfolio, which is a line of business we acquired from Opus Bank in 2020 that we have since discontinued, is comprised of twenty-two loans totaling $201 million in outstanding balances, or 1.5% of total loans, at September 30th.
“During the past several quarters, we intentionally and proactively prioritized capital accumulation over balance sheet growth in light of the uncertain economic outlook, while at the same time continuing to provide best-in-class service to our clients and the communities we serve. As a result, we have created optionality for our organization to pursue organic and strategic growth opportunities that we believe will be accretive and aligned with our commitment to producing long-term value for our shareholders.
“I would like to thank all of the Pacific Premier employees for their outstanding efforts during the quarter, and our Board of Directors, shareholders, and stakeholders for continuing to support our organization through another dynamic period of time.”
