GREENVILLE, S.C.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--May 4, 2022-- Regional Management Corp. (NYSE: RM), a diversified consumer finance company, today announced results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2022.

“We produced another set of outstanding financial and operating results in the first quarter,” said Robert W. Beck, President and Chief Executive Officer of Regional Management Corp. “Our strategic growth initiatives enabled us to overcome the normal seasonal portfolio liquidation that typically is the hallmark of the first quarter. We grew our net finance receivables in the quarter to an all-time high of $1.45 billion, up 31% from a year prior. Our portfolio in turn generated record quarterly revenue of $121 million, a year-over-year increase of 24%. We posted net income of $26.8 million and diluted EPS of $2.67, both record highs, with diluted EPS up 16% from the prior-year period. We also delivered robust returns of 7.3% ROA and 36.7% ROE.”

“We continue to experience strong loan demand across all channels, and we remain well-positioned to capture additional market share,” added Mr. Beck. “We expanded our operations to Mississippi in February, and in late March, we began piloting end-to-end digital lending. We are excited to introduce this new lending channel, which allows us to offer our small and large loan products on an entirely digital basis without intervention by our team, from the point of application through loan proceeds distribution. Moving ahead, we are focused on maintaining our strong credit profile and will continue executing on our long-term strategies of digital innovation, geographic expansion, and product and channel development. We look forward to continuing our delivery of profitable growth, sustainable returns, and long-term value to our shareholders.”

First Quarter 2022 Highlights

  • Net income for the first quarter of 2022 was a record $26.8 million and diluted earnings per share was a record $2.67, increases of 4.9% and 15.6%, respectively, compared to the prior-year period.
  • Net finance receivables as of March 31, 2022 hit an all-time high of $1.4 billion, a record increase of $340.5 million, or 30.8%, from the prior-year period.
    • Large loan net finance receivables of $997.2 million increased $274.8 million, or 38.0%, from the prior-year period and represented 69.0% of the total loan portfolio. Small loan net finance receivables were $438.2 million, an increase of 18.0% from the prior-year period.
    • Branch, digitally sourced, direct mail, and total loan originations were all at record levels for a first quarter.
    • Total loan originations of $326.0 million in the first quarter of 2022, an increase of $91.2 million, or 38.8%, from the prior-year period.
    • Digitally sourced loan originations of $40.3 million in the first quarter of 2022, an increase of $24.2 million, or 150.0%, from the prior-year period.
  • Total revenue for the first quarter of 2022 was a record $120.8 million, an increase of $23.1 million, or 23.7%, from the prior-year period.
    • Interest and fee income increased $20.4 million, or 23.3%, primarily due to higher average net finance receivables, partially offset by ongoing credit normalization and the continued mix shift towards large loans.
    • Insurance income, net increased $2.6 million, or 32.0%, driven by an increase in premium revenue associated with portfolio growth.
  • Provision for credit losses for the first quarter of 2022 was $30.9 million, an increase of $19.5 million, or 171.6%, from the prior-year period. The provision for credit losses for the first quarter of 2022 included an incremental reserve of $0.6 million primarily for the $20.0 million in sequential portfolio growth and a release of $1.1 million based on the macroeconomic model.
    • Allowance for credit losses was $158.8 million as of March 31, 2022, including a $15.9 million allowance for credit losses reserve associated with potential future macroeconomic impacts on credit losses, inclusive of those associated with the COVID-19 pandemic.
  • Annualized net credit losses as a percentage of average net finance receivables for the first quarter of 2022 were 8.7%, a 100 basis point increase compared to 7.7% in the prior-year period but a 200 basis point improvement compared to 10.7% in the first quarter of 2019.
  • As of March 31, 2022, 30+ day contractual delinquencies totaled $82.0 million, or 5.7% of net finance receivables, an improvement of 30 basis points compared to December 31, 2021, and a 120 basis point improvement from March 31, 2019. The 30+ day contractual delinquency remains well below the company’s $158.8 million allowance for credit losses as of March 31, 2022.
  • The company expanded its operations to the state of Mississippi in the first quarter. In addition, during the first quarter, the company continued its assessment of its legacy branch network and determined to close 20 branches in the second quarter where clear opportunities exist to consolidate operations into a larger branch in close proximity. This branch optimization is consistent with the company’s omni-channel strategy and builds upon the company’s recent successes in entering new states with a lighter branch footprint, while still providing customers with best-in-class service. The company estimates total general and administrative expenses of $1.2 million associated with the branch optimization, of which $0.4 million was incurred in the first quarter and $0.7 million is estimated in the second quarter. The branch optimization will generate approximately $1.8 million in general and administrative expense annual savings, which the company will reinvest in its expansion into new states.
  • General and administrative expenses for the first quarter of 2022 were $55.1 million, an increase of $9.3 million, or 20.2%, from the prior-year period due to ongoing investment in personnel, marketing, and digital capabilities to support the company’s growth strategy. General and administrative expenses for the first quarter of 2022 included $0.4 million of expenses related to branch optimization.
  • The operating expense ratio (annualized general and administrative expenses as a percentage of average net finance receivables) for the first quarter of 2022 was 15.4%, a 90 basis point improvement compared to the prior-year period. The operating expense ratio was inclusive of a 20 basis point impact related to branch optimization.
  • In the first quarter of 2022, the company repurchased 172,776 shares of its common stock at a weighted-average price of $48.76 per share under the company’s $20 million stock repurchase program.

Second Quarter 2022 Dividend

The company’s Board of Directors has declared a dividend of $0.30 per common share for the second quarter of 2022. The dividend will be paid on June 15, 2022 to shareholders of record as of the close of business on May 25, 2022. The declaration and payment of any future dividend is subject to the discretion of the Board of Directors and will depend on a variety of factors, including the company’s financial condition and results of operations.

Liquidity and Capital Resources

As of March 31, 2022, the company had net finance receivables of $1.4 billion and debt of $1.1 billion. The debt consisted of:

  • $44.9 million on the company’s $500 million senior revolving credit facility,
  • $84.6 million on the company’s aggregate $300 million revolving warehouse
    credit facilities, and
  • $1.0 billion through the company’s asset-backed securitizations.

As of March 31, 2022, the company’s unused capacity to fund future growth on its revolving credit facilities (subject to the borrowing base) was $671 million, or 83.9%, and the company had available liquidity of $214.6 million, including unrestricted cash on hand and immediate availability to draw down cash from its revolving credit facilities.

As of March 31, 2022, the company’s fixed-rate debt as a percentage of total debt was 89%, with a weighted-average coupon of 2.9% and an average revolving duration of 2.9 years. The company held interest rate caps with an aggregate notional principal amount of $550 million to manage the risk associated with variable rate debt. The interest rate caps are based on one-month LIBOR and reimburse the company for the difference when one-month LIBOR exceeds the strike rate.

In April 2022, the company sold $300 million of the interest rate cap contracts maturing in 2023 as a result of the significant increases in rates and the value of the interest rate caps. Following the sale, the company continues to maintain $250 million in interest rate cap protection, with one-month LIBOR strike rates between 25 and 50 basis points and maturity dates between February 2024 and February 2026.

The company had a funded debt-to-equity ratio of 3.8 to 1.0 and a stockholders’ equity ratio of 19.9%, each as of March 31, 2022. On a non-GAAP basis, the company had a funded debt-to-tangible equity ratio of 3.9 to 1.0, as of March 31, 2022. Please refer to the reconciliations of non-GAAP measures to comparable GAAP measures included at the end of this press release.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

In addition to financial measures presented in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”), this press release contains certain non-GAAP financial measures. The company’s management utilizes non-GAAP measures as additional metrics to aid in, and enhance, its understanding of the company’s financial results. Tangible equity and funded debt-to-tangible equity ratio are non-GAAP measures that adjust GAAP measures to exclude intangible assets. Management uses these equity measures to evaluate and manage the company’s capital and leverage position. The company also believes that these equity measures are commonly used in the financial services industry and provide useful information to users of the company’s financial statements in the evaluation of its capital and leverage position.

This non-GAAP financial information should be considered in addition to, not as a substitute for or superior to, measures of financial performance prepared in accordance with GAAP. In addition, the company’s non-GAAP measures may not be comparable to similarly titled non-GAAP measures of other companies.
