Regional Management Corp. Announces First Quarter 2017 Results

- Net income of $7.6 million; diluted earnings per share of $0.65 -

- Finance receivable growth of 14.4% from the prior year -

- Total delinquencies as a percentage of finance receivables of 15.7% -

GREENVILLE, S.C.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--May 2, 2017-- Regional Management Corp. (NYSE:RM), a diversified consumer finance company, today announced results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2017.

First Quarter 2017 Highlights

  • Net income for the first quarter of 2017 was $7.6 million, an increase of 47.5% from the prior-year period. The net income increase was due to growth in the core loan portfolios, as well as a $1.5 million tax benefit from share-based compensation in the first quarter of 2017. Diluted earnings per share for the first quarter of 2017 were $0.65, based on a diluted share count of 11.7 million.
  • Total finance receivables as of March 31, 2017 were $695.0 million, an increase of 14.4%, or $87.6 million, from the prior year, and down 3.2%, or $22.8 million, sequentially due to normal seasonality:
    • Eighth consecutive quarter that total finance receivables have increased at least 10% over the prior-year period.
    • Large loan finance receivables of $242.4 million increased $80.1 million, or 49.3%, from the prior-year period and now represent 35% of the total loan portfolio. Branch small loan finance receivables as of March 31, 2017 were $335.6 million, an increase of 8.1% over the prior year and a decrease of 6.4% sequentially due to typical seasonality.
  • Total revenue for the first quarter of 2017 was $65.8 million, a $9.1 million, or 16.1%, increase from the prior-year period, and a $1.8 million, or 2.8%, increase sequentially.
    • Strong interest and fee income increase of 15.5% driven by a 14.4% increase in receivables compared to the prior-year period.
    • Insurance income for the first quarter of 2017 increased $0.9 million from the prior-year period and $2.2 million sequentially. The sequential increase is related to a temporary shift of certain claims expense into provision for credit losses during the Company’s transition to a new insurance provider.
    • Overall yield increase of 40 basis points on a year-over-year basis and 90 basis points sequentially.
  • Provision for credit losses for the first quarter of 2017 was $19.1 million, an increase of $5.3 million compared to the prior-year period. The provision for credit losses included $2.2 million related to a temporary shift of insurance claims expense, as noted above. This line shift had no impact on the Company’s net income.
    • Annualized net credit losses as a percentage of finance receivables were 10.9% (inclusive of 0.5% attributable to the insurance losses noted above), an increase from 9.7% in the prior-year period.
  • Total delinquencies as a percentage of total finance receivables as of March 31, 2017 were 15.7%, a significant reduction from 18.1% as of December 31, 2016 and an improvement from 16.7% as of March 31, 2016.
    • 30+ day contractual delinquencies were 6.5%, an improvement sequentially from 7.4% as of December 31, 2016 and a slight increase from 6.2% as of March 31, 2016.

“We continued to experience double-digit year-over-year top-line and overall finance receivables growth during the first quarter,” said Peter R. Knitzer, Chief Executive Officer of Regional Management Corp. “Total finance receivables increased 14% from the prior year, allowing us to generate 16% year-over-year growth in our interest and fee income. Most notably, we continued to successfully grow within our existing footprint, as we generated 13% growth in our same-store finance receivables. Further, the ongoing focus on our core loan categories helped alleviate our typical portfolio seasonal liquidation and puts us in a strong position to grow the business in subsequent quarters.”

“In terms of our credit performance, while our provision and net credit losses were elevated in the quarter as expected, we worked diligently to significantly reduce our total and 30+ day delinquencies during the quarter from their levels at the end of 2016, and our total delinquency of 15.7% is a historic low for Regional Management,” added Mr. Knitzer. “With respect to our new operating platform, we successfully completed the buildout of our enhanced functionality, and we are on schedule to resume converting branches in our remaining states in the second quarter. Overall, we continue to move forward with our growth strategy and the build of our operating system in order to drive long-term shareholder value.”

First Quarter 2017 Results

Finance receivables outstanding at March 31, 2017 were $695.0 million, a 14.4% increase from $607.4 million in the prior year. Finance receivables increased primarily due to an increase in both the core small and large loan portfolios, enhanced marketing, and the net addition of branches in Virginia. On a sequential basis, finance receivables decreased by $22.8 million from the fourth quarter of 2016 due to normal seasonality.

For the first quarter ended March 31, 2017, the Company reported total revenue of $65.8 million, a 16.1% increase from $56.7 million in the prior-year period. Interest and fee income for the first quarter of 2017 was $59.3 million, a 15.5% increase from $51.3 million in the prior-year period, primarily due to an increase in the portfolios of both small and large loans compared to the prior-year period. Insurance income, net for the first quarter of 2017 was $3.8 million, an increase of $0.9 million from the prior-year period primarily due to a transition in insurance carriers, causing some of the Company’s insurance claims to impact net credit losses instead of insurance income. Other income for the first quarter of 2017 was $2.8 million, a 12.3% increase from the prior-year period and consistent with portfolio growth.

The provision for credit losses in the first quarter of 2017 was $19.1 million, compared to $13.8 million in the prior-year period. The $5.3 million increase was primarily due to an increase in net credit losses of $4.4 million and the temporary shift of insurance claims expense. In the first quarter of 2017, the Company released $0.3 million of allowance for credit losses, compared to $1.2 million in the first quarter of 2016.

Net credit losses were $19.4 million in the first quarter of 2017, compared to $15.0 million in the prior-year period, consistent with portfolio growth and the elevated levels of the last three delinquency buckets in the fourth quarter of 2016. Net credit losses for the first quarter of 2017 included $1.0 million of losses attributable to a temporary shift of certain insurance claims expense into net credit losses during a transition in the Company’s insurance provider. Annualized net credit losses as a percentage of average finance receivables in the first quarter of 2017 were 10.9% (inclusive of 0.5% attributable to the insurance losses noted above), an increase from 9.7% in the prior-year period.

General and administrative expenses for the first quarter of 2017 were $31.5 million, an increase of 5.5%, or $1.6 million, from the prior-year period. General and administrative expenses for both the first quarters of 2017 and 2016 include $0.4 million of loan system conversion costs. Sequentially, general and administrative expenses increased $2.6 million, or 9.1%, from the fourth quarter of 2016 due to higher personnel costs (consistent with seasonally fewer originations that drive lower salary deferral for loan origination costs), as well as increased other expenses.

Net income for the first quarter of 2017 was $7.6 million, an increase from $5.2 million in the prior-year period. The net income increase in the first quarter of 2017 was partially due to a $1.5 million tax benefit from share-based compensation that occurred during the quarter. Diluted earnings per share for the first quarter of 2017 were $0.65, an increase from $0.40 in the prior-year period.

2017 De Novo Outlook

As of March 31, 2017, the Company’s branch network consisted of 344 locations. Regional Management opened 5 de novo branches in the first quarter of 2017 and, for the full year 2017, maintains its plan to open between 10 and 15 de novo branches.

Liquidity and Capital Resources

As of March 31, 2017, the Company had finance receivables of $695.0 million and outstanding long-term debt of $463.0 million (consisting of $430.8 million of long-term debt on its $585.0 million senior revolving credit facility and $32.2 million of long-term debt on its $75.7 million amortizing loan).
