SEATTLE, October 25, 2021--(BUSINESS WIRE)--HomeStreet, Inc. (Nasdaq:HMST):

Fully diluted EPS $1.31

ROE: 14.8%
ROTCE: 15.6%

ROAA: 1.48%

HomeStreet, Inc. (Nasdaq:HMST) (including its consolidated subsidiaries, the "Company" or "HomeStreet"), the parent company of HomeStreet Bank, today announced the financial results for the quarter ended September 30, 2021. As we present non-GAAP measures in this release, the reader should refer to the non-GAAP reconciliations set forth below under the section "Non-GAAP Financial Measures."

"Our results for the third quarter reflect our diversified business model, the benefits of our conservative credit culture and our continuing focus on operating efficiency," stated Mark Mason, HomeStreet’s Chairman, Chief Executive Officer and President. "Expected decreases in our single family mortgage revenues due to declining refinancing activity were mitigated by decreases in our noninterest expenses. As anticipated, our single family mortgage banking revenue has declined to near normal levels with refinancing activity still slightly elevated. For the second consecutive quarter our mortgage banking revenue comprised only 17% of total revenue and less than 8% of our net income. Additionally, while we continued to benefit from the Paycheck Protection Program ("PPP") loan forgiveness, our underlying net interest margin has remained stable. Going forward, we expect strong loan production will drive loan portfolio growth and increasing levels of net interest income and we anticipate increasing revenues to largely fall to the bottom line as a result of the operating leverage we have created through our recent efficiency improvement initiatives."

Financial Position

"Loan origination levels remained strong with $804 million of originations in the current quarter," added Mr. Mason. "Excluding the impact of the PPP loans, and despite continuing high levels of prepayments, our total loans grew at an annualized rate of 19% during the third quarter and 9% during the first nine months of 2021. Last quarter we disclosed that we were evaluating the use of securitizations as a tool to enable us to originate multifamily permanent loans to our full potential, uncap individual borrower lending limits, improve our capital efficiency and retain the servicing on these loans and that we planned on completing our first securitization this year. While we continue to evaluate the use of securitizations, we have instead agreed to execute a whole loan sale in the fourth quarter due to extremely favorable prices available in the secondary market today. In addition, total deposits increased by 4% during the third quarter and noninterest bearing deposits increased to 27% of total deposits. During the third quarter, we recognized a $5 million recovery of pandemic related allowance for credit losses. As we continue to have more clarity of the minimal impact COVID is having on our loan portfolio, and with projected improvements in our economies, we expect to recover additional amounts of our allowance for credit losses in future periods."

Other

Mr. Mason concluded, "We continued our stock repurchase program during the third quarter and since the beginning of 2021 we have repurchased 7% of our outstanding common stock. We anticipate continuing to efficiently retain capital for growth and while returning excess capital to shareholders."

We caution readers that actual results may differ materially from those expressed in, or implied or projected by, such forward-looking statements.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

To supplement our unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements presented in accordance with GAAP, we use certain non-GAAP measures of financial performance. These supplemental performance measures may vary from, and may not be comparable to, similarly titled measures provided by other companies in our industry. Non-GAAP financial measures are not in accordance with, or an alternative for, GAAP. Generally, a non-GAAP financial measure is a numerical measure of a company’s performance that either excludes or includes amounts that are not normally excluded or included in the most directly comparable measure calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP. A non-GAAP financial measure may also be a financial metric that is not required by GAAP or other applicable requirement.

We believe that these non-GAAP financial measures, when taken together with the corresponding GAAP financial measures, provide meaningful supplemental information regarding our performance by providing additional information used by management that is not otherwise required by GAAP or other applicable requirements. Our management uses, and believes that investors benefit from referring to, these non-GAAP financial measures in assessing our operating results and when planning, forecasting and analyzing future periods. These non-GAAP financial measures also facilitate a comparison of our performance to prior periods. We believe these measures are frequently used by securities analysts, investors and other interested parties in the evaluation of companies in our industry. However, these non-GAAP financial measures should be considered in addition to, not as a substitute for or superior to, financial measures prepared in accordance with GAAP. In the information below, we have provided a reconciliation of, where applicable, the most comparable GAAP financial measures to the non-GAAP measures used in this press release, or a reconciliation of the non-GAAP calculation of the financial measure.

In this press release, we use the following non-GAAP measures: (i) tangible common equity and tangible assets as we believe this information is consistent with the treatment by bank regulatory agencies, which excluded intangible assets from the calculation of capital ratios; (ii) core earnings which exclude certain charges primarily related to our discontinued operations and restructuring activities as we believe this measure is a better comparison to be used for projecting future results; and (iii) an efficiency ratio which is the ratio of noninterest expenses to the sum of net interest income and noninterest income, excluding certain items of income or expense and excluding taxes incurred and payable to the state of Washington as such taxes are not classified as income taxes and we believe including them in noninterest expenses impacts the comparability of our results to those companies whose operations are in states where assessed taxes on business are classified as income taxes.
