Irvine, Calif., April 24, 2024 -- Pacific Premier Bancorp, Inc. (NASDAQ: PPBI) (the “Company” or “Pacific Premier”), the holding company of Pacific Premier Bank (the “Bank”), reported net income of $47.0 million, or $0.49 per diluted share, for the first quarter of 2024, compared with net loss of $135.4 million, or $1.44 per diluted share, for the fourth quarter of 2023, and net income of $62.6 million, or $0.66 per diluted share, for the first quarter of 2023.        

For the first quarter of 2024, the Company’s return on average assets (“ROAA”) was 0.99%, return on average equity (“ROAE”) was 6.50%, and return on average tangible common equity (“ROATCE”)(1) was 10.05%, compared to (2.76)%, (19.01)%, and (28.01)%, respectively, for the fourth quarter of 2023, and 1.15%, 8.87%, and 13.89%, respectively, for the first quarter of 2023. Total assets were $18.81 billion at March 31, 2024, compared to $19.03 billion at December 31, 2023, and $21.36 billion at March 31, 2023.

Steven R. Gardner, Chairman, Chief Executive Officer, and President of the Company, commented, “Our team delivered solid first quarter financial performance with net income of $47.0 million, or $0.49 per share, reflecting a full quarter’s benefit from the securities portfolio repositioning as our net interest margin expanded 11 basis points to 3.39%. Our commitment to prudent and proactive risk, liquidity, and capital management in the current dynamic environment continues to drive strong capital levels that rank amongst the top of our peers, with our TCE(1) ratio increasing 25 basis points to 10.97%.

 “On the business development front, our dedicated relationship managers, retail branch bankers, and treasury management teams continue to successfully collaborate to expand our client base and deepen existing client relationships. During the first quarter, total deposits increased by $192 million, driven by a $120 million increase in non-maturity deposits, enabling us to further reduce FHLB borrowings by $400 million. Some of the quarterly deposit inflows were seasonal in nature, which we expect to reverse as we move through the year.

“First quarter asset quality trends remained strong, although nonperforming loans increased to $63.8 million, primarily the result of a single, diversified, Pacific Northwest commercial banking relationship, wherein the borrower remains current on all payments. Our team is actively engaged with the client and continues to approach the relationship consistent with our longstanding proactive approach to credit risk management. 

“With our strong capital levels combined with our significant loss absorbing capacity, we have strategically positioned the company to perform in a variety of economic and credit scenarios. There are a number of factors contributing to an uncertain outlook, including ongoing inflationary pressures, interest rate volatility, and domestic and international geopolitical risks. Our franchise has been built on a culture of risk management and a proactive approach to building sustainable franchise value. We will continue to manage the business proactively and prudently while leveraging the strength of our relationship banking teams to capitalize on compelling opportunities as they may arise. I would like to thank all Pacific Premier employees for their outstanding efforts during the quarter, as well as all of our stakeholders for continuing to support our organization.”
