Irvine, Calif., January 26, 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 $73.7 million, or $0.77 per diluted share, for the fourth quarter of 2022, compared with net income of $73.4 million, or $0.77 per diluted share, for the third quarter of 2022, and net income of $84.8 million, or $0.89 per diluted share, for the fourth quarter of 2021.
For the fourth quarter of 2022, the Company’s return on average assets (“ROAA”) was 1.36%, return on average equity (“ROAE”) was 10.71%, and return on average tangible common equity (“ROATCE”)(1) was 16.99%, compared to 1.35%, 10.57%, and 16.74%, respectively, for the third quarter of 2022 and 1.63%, 11.90%, and 18.66%, respectively, for the fourth quarter of 2021. Total assets as of December 31, 2022 were $21.69 billion, compared to $21.62 billion at September 30, 2022 and $21.09 billion at December 31, 2021.
Steven R. Gardner, Chairman, President, and Chief Executive Officer of the Company, commented, “Our fourth quarter results reflect the benefits of the actions we took over the past several quarters to proactively manage risk and position the balance sheet for higher interest rates. Despite a more challenging operating environment, we continued to deliver solid financial performance, including an increase in pre-provision net revenue(1) and higher returns compared to the prior quarter. Tangible book value per share(1) grew nearly 4% during the fourth quarter, and all of our capital ratios increased.
“We remain committed to our disciplined, consistent approach to new business development, which enabled us to add attractive full banking relationships with high quality commercial clients during the current quarter. With higher interest rates impacting demand for commercial real estate and multifamily loans, coupled with our conservative approach to new loan production, we saw a slight contraction in total loans during the fourth quarter. Our core commercial deposit base remained relatively stable, but the lower level of commercial real estate transactions continued to result in deposit outflows from our commercial escrow and exchange business. We replaced these outflows with additional time deposits of varying maturities, keeping our loan-to-deposit ratio in the mid-80% range.
“As we head into 2023, our strong liquidity and capital levels provide us with optionality as we navigate an uncertain economic environment. Starting in the fourth quarter of 2022, our teams began executing on new initiatives and marketing efforts to expand the products and services we are offering to existing clients and to enhance new client acquisitions, which we expect will drive growth in future periods. As always, we will be here when our clients need us most, and we will maintain our commitment to delivering value to our shareholders, clients, employees, and the communities we serve.”
