Balance Sheet

Diversified Loan Growth

Total portfolio loans held for investment were $12.9 billion at June 30, 2013, an increase of $0.6 billion, or 5%, from the prior quarter. Year over year, this represents a $5.1 billion, or 65%, increase. Loans held for investment for the second quarter 2013 were comprised of:

Lease financing receivables1,015911681
Other176 181 196
Total HFI$12,867 $12,255 $7,785

During the second quarter, residential loans HFI increased by 5% compared to the prior quarter to $6.6 billion as we experienced significant growth in our prime jumbo hybrid ARM portfolio. Based on the current rate environment, we expect to continue to originate prime jumbo loans for our balance sheet and will selectively evaluate capital market executions. This strategy is consistent with our approach of retaining high quality loans with attractive risk-adjusted returns for our portfolio.Our commercial lending and leasing platforms experienced strong growth in the quarter and represent approximately 47% of loans HFI in the second quarter compared to approximately 32% a year ago. Our focus on high quality commercial lending and leasing assets positions us to benefit from higher interest rate levels.

Loan Origination Activities

Organic asset generation totaled $3.8 billion and retained organic production totaled $1.1 billion for the second quarter of 2013, an increase of 15% and 111%, respectively, from the prior quarter. Total commercial loans and leases originated during the quarter were $0.5 billion, including commercial real estate originations of $0.2 billion. This represents an increase of 31% and 149%, respectively, compared to the prior quarter.

Residential loan originations were $3.2 billion for the second quarter, an increase of 12% compared to the prior quarter. Origination volume from our retail channel was $1.2 billion in the second quarter, an increase of 45% from the prior quarter and a 293% increase year over year. Purchase transactions represented 32% of total volumes and 49% of retail volumes, compared to 19% and 32%, respectively, in the prior quarter. We originated record prime jumbo loan volume of $1.1 billion during the second quarter, an increase of 36% over the prior quarter, including hybrid ARM volume of $0.5 billion and fixed-rate volume of $0.6 billion.

Subsequent to the end of the quarter, we executed a sale of our fixed-rate prime jumbo loans classified as held for sale at June 30, 2013. The transaction is expected to close in the third quarter, subject to customary closing conditions.

Deposit Growth

Total deposits were $13.7 billion at June 30, 2013, flat quarter over quarter, as increased transaction, savings and money market balances were offset by lower time deposit balances. Year over year, total deposits grew by $2.9 billion, or 27%, from $10.8 billion. At June 30, 2013, our deposits were comprised of the following:

Total other borrowings were $2.7 billion at June 30, 2013, a decrease of 1% quarter over quarter. We expect to continue to replace a portion of our wholesale borrowings with core deposits over time.

Capital Strength

Total shareholders' equity was $1.5 billion at June 30, 2013, an increase of 3% quarter over quarter. The bank's Tier 1 leverage ratio was 8.3% and total risk-based capital ratio was 13.7% at June 30, 2013. As a result, the bank is considered "well-capitalized" under all applicable regulatory guidelines.

The final Basel III rules increased our estimate of the fully phased-in common equity tier 1 capital ratio from 8.5% - 9.0% to 9.0% - 9.5%.

Credit Quality

Our adjusted non-performing assets were 0.92% of total assets at June 30, 2013, a decrease from 0.99% for the prior quarter and 1.46% at June 30, 2012. Net charge-offs during the second quarter of 2013 were $4 million, a decrease of $3 million, or 48%, compared to the first quarter of 2013, driven by a $3 million increase in recoveries. On an annualized basis, net charge-offs were 0.12% of total average loans and leases held for investment, compared to 0.23% for the prior quarter and 0.34% for the second quarter of 2012.

Originated Loan Repurchase Activity

During the second quarter of 2013, we experienced net realized losses on loan repurchases of $2.7 million and recorded a net recovery of provision of $0.2 million on repurchase obligations for loans sold or securitized. Our reserve declined from $25 million in the first quarter of 2013 to $22 million in the second quarter of 2013. We continue to be well reserved with approximately 5 quarters of coverage based on the average quarterly loss rate over the trailing four quarters. We believe that our 0.10% total loss rate is indicative of our disciplined underwriting guidelines and risk management culture.

Income Statement Highlights

Continued Revenue Growth

Revenue for the second quarter of 2013 was $288 million, an increase of $11 million, or 4%, from $277 million in the first quarter 2013. The increase from the prior quarter was due to strong non-interest income driven by the positive contribution from net loan servicing income and loan production revenue, offset by lower gain on sale of loans income and other fee income.

Net Interest Income

For the second quarter of 2013, net interest income was $141 million, a $3 million, or 2%, decrease compared to the prior quarter. This decrease was attributed to lower investment securities average balances and yields, lower loans and leases HFI average balances and yields, lower lease financing receivables yields and higher yields in our wholesale borrowings. Offsetting these were a decline in deposit interest cost driven by lower deposit pricing beginning in June and an increase in loans HFS average balances and yields.Core net interest margin, which is net interest margin excluding the impact of Tygris excess accretion, decreased to 3.21% for the second quarter of 2013 from 3.27% in the first quarter of 2013.

Noninterest Income

Noninterest income for the second quarter of 2013 was $147 million, an increase of $13 million, or 10%, compared to the prior quarter. This increase was driven by a $24 million improvement in net loan servicing income, offset by a $6 million decline in gain on sale of loans income and a $3 million decrease in other income. Our gain on sale margin decreased by 87 basis points during the quarter to 2.16%, primarily driven by changes in interest rates and related mortgage spread widening that occurred at the end of the quarter.

Noninterest Expense

Noninterest expense for the second quarter of 2013 increased by $2 million, or 1%, to $214 million from $212 million in the prior quarter. Adjusted for foreclosure review costs of $18 million, noninterest expense was $196 million in the quarter, a decrease of 2% compared to $200 million in the first quarter. We expect that the initial file review of the independent foreclosure review pursuant to the consent order will be completed by early to mid August. General and administrative expense, excluding credit-related expenses, decreased $9 million, or 14%, from the first quarter due to a decline in FDIC assessment and agency fees as well as lower advertising and marketing expenses. Salaries, commissions and employee benefits increased by $8 million, or 7%, due to continued hiring activity to support our retail mortgage lending expansion as well as increased staffing in our servicing operation related to onboarding the $13 billion unpaid principal balance Fannie Mae acquisition completed in the second quarter.

Income Tax Expense

Our effective tax rate for the first and second quarter of 2013 was 38%, compared to 36% for the second quarter 2012.

Segment Analysis for the Second Quarter of 2013

  • Banking and Wealth Management pre-tax income was $89 million, a 17% increase compared to the prior quarter.
  • Mortgage Banking pre-tax income was $10 million, a 23% decrease compared to the prior quarter.
  • Corporate Services had a pre-tax loss of $25 million, a 6% improvement compared to the pre-tax loss in the prior quarter driven by lower noninterest expense.

Dividends

On July 23, 2013, the Company's Board of Directors declared a quarterly cash dividend of $0.03 per common share, payable on August 23, 2013, to stockholders of record as of August 12, 2013. This represents an increase of 50% from the prior quarter's cash dividend. Also on July 23, 2013, the Company's Board of Directors declared a quarterly cash dividend of $421.875, payable on October 5, 2013, for each share of 6.75% Series A Non-Cumulative Perpetual Preferred Stock held as of September 20, 2013.

Subsequent Event

Subsequent to the quarter end, EverBank announced it will cease originating residential mortgages through its wholesale broker lending channel while continuing to focus on growing its retail, consumer direct and correspondent lending channels. Origination volume attributable to the wholesale broker channel was $0.5 billion in the second quarter and $1.2 billion year-to-date. These actions will eliminate approximately 150 positions nationwide and result in a one-time after-tax charge of $2.0 to $4.0 million which will be incurred in the third quarter of 2013.
