DALLAS--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Hilltop Holdings Inc. (NYS: HTH) ("Hilltop"), the parent company of PlainsCapital Corporation ("PlainsCapital"), announced financial results for the second quarter of 2013. PlainsCapital, through its operating subsidiaries PlainsCapital Bank ("the Bank"), PrimeLending and First Southwest, provides banking, mortgage origination and financial advisory services, respectively. Hilltop's insurance subsidiary, National Lloyds Corporation ("NLC"), provides property and casualty insurance.

Hilltop produced $20.9 million of income applicable to common stockholders for the second quarter of 2013, compared to a loss of $10.7 million for the second quarter of 2012. Diluted earnings per share were $0.24, compared to $(0.19) for the second quarter of 2012.

Second Quarter 2013 Financial Highlights for Hilltop:

  • Hilltop's total assets increased to $7.4 billion at June 30, 2013, compared to $7.2 billion at March 31, 2013;
  • Hilltop's return on average assets and return on average equity for the second quarter were 1.24% and 7.29%, respectively, compared to 1.87% and 11.46%, respectively, in the first quarter of 2013;
  • Total stockholders' equity decreased by $6.8 million from March 31, 2013 to $1.2 billion at June 30, 2013;
  • Loans Held for Investment, net of Allowance for Loan Losses, decreased by 0.15% to $3.2 billion, and Loans Held for Sale increased by 13.74% to $1.4 billion from March 31, 2013 to June 30, 2013;
  • Hilltop was well capitalized with a Tier 1 Leverage Ratio1 of 13.66% and Total Capital Ratio of 18.90% at June 30, 2013; and
  • Hilltop continues to retain over $200 million of freely usable cash.

Second Quarter 2013 Highlights for Hilltop Subsidiaries:

  • The Bank remains well capitalized and positioned within the Texas market for lending growth;
  • PrimeLending mortgage loan originations increased from $3.0 billion in the first quarter of 2013 to $3.5 billion in the second quarter, generated from a higher home purchase volume;
  • Losses at National Lloyds Corporation were primarily driven by severe tornado and hail storms during May 2013 in Texas and Oklahoma; and
  • Noninterest income from our financial advisory business increased from $22.8 million in the first quarter of 2013 to $28.9 million in the second quarter.

"The second quarter of 2013 was very positive for our banking, mortgage origination and financial advisory businesses. We continue to experience strong results following our acquisition of PlainsCapital. However, our insurance subsidiary experienced significant losses during the second quarter related to three tornado and hail storms in Oklahoma and North Texas," said Jeremy Ford, CEO of Hilltop.
