Silvergate Capital Corporation Announces Fourth Quarter 2022 Results

01/17/2023

LA JOLLA, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Silvergate Capital Corporation (“Silvergate” or “Company”) (NYSE:SI) and its wholly-owned subsidiary, Silvergate Bank (“Bank”), today announced financial results for the three and twelve months ended December 31, 2022.

Fourth Quarter 2022 Commentary

During the fourth quarter of 2022, the digital asset industry experienced a transformational shift, with significant over-leverage in the industry leading to several high-profile bankruptcies. These dynamics created a crisis of confidence across the ecosystem and led many industry participants to shift to a “risk off” position across digital asset trading platforms. In turn, the Company saw significant outflows of deposits during the quarter and took several actions to maintain cash liquidity. The Company initially utilized wholesale funding, and subsequently sold debt securities to accommodate sustained lower deposit levels and maintain its highly liquid balance sheet.

As Silvergate prepares for what it expects will be a sustained period of lower deposits, it is taking several actions to help ensure the business is resilient, including managing its expense base and evaluating its product portfolio and customer relationships going forward. In addition, Silvergate has made the difficult decision to substantively reduce its workforce in order to account for the economic realities facing its business and the digital asset industry today.

Alan Lane, chief executive officer of Silvergate, commented, “While we are taking decisive actions to navigate the current environment, our mission has not changed. We believe in the digital asset industry, and we remain focused on providing value-added services for our core institutional customers. To that end, we are committed to maintaining a highly liquid balance sheet with a strong capital position.”

  • Net loss attributable to common shareholders for the quarter was $1.0 billion, or $33.16 loss per common share, compared to net income of $40.6 million, or $1.28 per diluted share, for the third quarter of 2022, and net income of $18.4 million, or $0.66 per diluted share, for the fourth quarter of 2021

Net interest margin is a ratio calculated as net interest income divided by average interest earning assets for the same period. For the three and twelve months ended December 31, 2021, net interest margin ratio is calculated on a fully taxable equivalent basis for interest income on tax-exempt securities using the federal statutory tax rate of 21.0%. As a result of the Company recording losses in the fourth quarter of 2022 and full year 2022, the income from tax-exempt securities in these periods does not include any adjustments for taxable equivalent basis.

(4) Efficiency ratio is calculated by dividing noninterest expenses by net interest income plus noninterest income.

Digital Asset Initiative

At December 31, 2022, the Company’s digital asset customers were 1,620 compared to 1,677 at September 30, 2022, and 1,381 at December 31, 2021. As the Company prepares for what it expects will be a sustained period of transformation, it is taking several actions to help ensure the business is resilient, including offboarding certain non-core customers and eliminating a portion of its product portfolio. As a result of these efforts, the Company is assessing its pipeline of prospective digital asset customers. For the fourth quarter of 2022, $117.1 billion of U.S. dollar transfers occurred on the SEN, a 4% increase from $112.6 billion transfers in the third quarter of 2022, and a decrease of 47% compared to $219.2 billion in the fourth quarter of 2021.

Results of Operations, Quarter Ended December 31, 2022

Net Interest Income and Net Interest Margin Analysis (Taxable Equivalent Basis)

The Company’s securities portfolio included tax-exempt municipal bonds with tax-exempt income. As a result of the Company recording losses in the fourth quarter of 2022 and full year 2022, the income from tax-exempt securities in these periods does not include any adjustments for taxable equivalent basis. For prior years, net interest income, net interest spread and net interest margin are presented on a taxable equivalent basis based on the federal statutory tax rate of 21.0%.

Net interest income on a taxable equivalent basis totaled $53.7 million for the fourth quarter of 2022, compared to $80.9 million for the third quarter of 2022, and $40.2 million for the fourth quarter of 2021.

Compared to the third quarter of 2022, net interest income decreased $27.2 million due to increased interest expense, partially offset by increased interest income driven by higher yields across all interest earning asset categories. Average total interest earning assets decreased by $0.7 billion for the fourth quarter of 2022 compared to the third quarter of 2022, primarily due to decreased securities and loans balances. The average yield on interest earning assets increased from 2.47% for the third quarter of 2022 to 3.27% for the fourth quarter of 2022, with the most significant impacts due to higher yields on securities and interest earning deposits in other banks. Average interest bearing liabilities increased $4.4 billion for the fourth quarter of 2022 compared to the third quarter of 2022, due to the significantly higher utilization of short-term borrowings and brokered certificates of deposit. The average rate on total interest bearing liabilities increased from 2.19% for the third quarter of 2022 to 3.87% for the fourth quarter of 2022, primarily due to an increase in interest rates on short-term borrowings and brokered certificates of deposit.

Compared to the fourth quarter of 2021, net interest income increased $13.5 million due to increased interest income, with the largest driver being higher yields on interest earning assets, offset by increased interest expense. Average total interest earning assets decreased by $0.6 billion for the fourth quarter of 2022 compared to the fourth quarter of 2021, primarily due to decreased interest earning deposits in other banks and loan balances partially offset by an increase in securities balances. The average yield on total interest earning assets increased from 1.11% for the fourth quarter of 2021 to 3.27% for the fourth quarter of 2022, primarily due to overall higher yields resulting from increased interest rates. Average interest bearing liabilities increased $6.1 billion for the fourth quarter of 2022 compared to the fourth quarter of 2021, due to higher average balances on short-term borrowings and brokered certificates of deposit. The average rate on total interest bearing liabilities increased from 1.17% for the fourth quarter of 2021 to 3.87% for the fourth quarter of 2022, primarily due to the impact of increased interest rates on short-term borrowings.

Net interest margin for the fourth quarter of 2022 was 1.54%, compared to 2.21% for the third quarter of 2022, and 1.11% for the fourth quarter of 2021. The decrease in net interest margin compared to the third quarter of 2022 was primarily due to higher interest expense associated with short-term borrowings and brokered certificates of deposit. The increase in net interest margin compared to the fourth quarter of 2021 was primarily due to higher yields on adjustable rate securities, interest earning assets in other banks and loans, partially offset by higher borrowing costs associated with short-term borrowings and brokered certificates of deposit.

(1)

Interest income on tax-exempt securities is presented on a taxable equivalent basis using the federal statutory tax rate of 21.0% for the three months ended December 31, 2021. There were no adjustments to taxable equivalent basis for the three months ended December 31, 2022 or September 30, 2022.

(2)

Loans include nonaccrual loans and loans held-for-sale, net of deferred fees and before allowance for loan losses.

(3)

Interest income includes amortization of deferred loan fees, net of deferred loan costs.

(4)

Net interest spread is the difference between interest rates earned on interest earning assets and interest rates paid on interest bearing liabilities.

(5)

Net interest margin is a ratio calculated as annualized net interest income divided by average interest earning assets for the same period. For the three months ended December 31, 2021, net interest margin ratio is calculated on a fully taxable equivalent basis for interest income on tax-exempt securities using the federal statutory tax rate of 21.0%.

 

Provision (Reversal) for Loan Losses

The Company recorded a $0.5 million reversal of provision for loan losses for the fourth quarter of 2022, compared to a $0.6 million reversal of provision for the third quarter of 2022 and no provision for the fourth quarter of 2021 as a result of management’s assessment of the level of the allowance for loan losses, and the lower amount and change in mix of the loan portfolio, among other factors.

Noninterest Income (Loss)

Noninterest loss for the fourth quarter of 2022 was $887.3 million, compared to noninterest income of $8.5 million for the third quarter of 2022 and $11.1 million for the fourth quarter of 2021. The decline in the fourth quarter was due to losses on securities of $751.4 million and losses on derivatives of $8.7 million resulting from sale of $5.2 billion of debt securities and related derivatives that took place during the quarter. In addition, the Company recorded a $134.5 million impairment charge related to an estimated $1.7 billion of securities it expects to sell in the first quarter of 2023 to reduce borrowings.

Noninterest Expense

Noninterest expense totaled $238.5 million for the fourth quarter of 2022, an increase of $205.3 million, or 619.4%, compared to the third quarter of 2022, and an increase of $212.8 million, or 829.6%, compared to the fourth quarter of 2021. The increase in noninterest expense compared to the prior quarter was primarily due to a $196.2 million impairment charge on developed technology assets acquired earlier in the year. In the fourth quarter of 2022, the Company determined that based on recent changes in market conditions of the digital asset industry, the likelihood of the launch of a blockchain-based payment solution was no longer imminent and performed an impairment analysis resulting in the impairment charge. In addition, noninterest expense increased due to a $7.1 million increase in salaries and benefits expense due in large part to a $3.7 million restructuring charge related to exiting the mortgage warehouse lending product during the fourth quarter of 2022. The restructuring costs primarily consist of severance and employee benefits.

The increase in noninterest expense from the fourth quarter of 2021 was primarily driven by the impairment charge discussed above and an increase in salaries and employee benefits attributable to increased headcount prior to December 2022, as well as increases in communications and data processing, and professional services, all of which supported organic growth of the Company’s strategic initiatives. This was partially offset by a decrease in federal deposit insurance expense due to a lower growth rate in deposit levels.

Income Tax Expense (Benefit)

Income tax benefit was $24.3 million for the fourth quarter of 2022, compared to an expense of $13.5 million for the third quarter of 2022, and $2.2 million for the fourth quarter of 2021. Our effective tax rate for the fourth quarter of 2022 was 2.3%, compared to 23.7% for the third quarter of 2022, and 9.4% for the fourth quarter of 2021. The decrease in the tax expense and effective tax rate for the fourth quarter of 2022 compared to the third quarter of 2022 and the fourth quarter of 2021 was driven by losses incurred in the fourth quarter of 2022. The income tax benefit recorded in the fourth quarter of 2022 was due to the reversal of prior period income tax expense incurred during the first three quarters of the year, partially offset by a charge from the transition to a 100% valuation allowance on deferred tax assets.

Results of Operations, Year Ended December 31, 2022

Net loss attributable to common shareholders for the year ended December 31, 2022 was $948.7 million, or $30.07 loss per diluted common share, compared to income of $75.5 million, or $2.91 per diluted share, for the comparable period in 2021.

Net interest income for the year ended December 31, 2022 was $255.6 million, compared to $129.3 million for the same period in 2021. The increase in net interest income was primarily due to a $196.9 million increase in interest income and a $70.6 million increase in interest expense, primarily due to growth in the balance sheet and an increase in rates.

Noninterest loss for the year ended December 31, 2022 was $860.1 million, compared to noninterest income of $45.3 million for the same period in 2021. The decrease in noninterest income was primarily due to an $886.2 million net loss on securities. Digital asset customer related fee income for the year ended December 31, 2022 was $32.2 million, compared to $35.8 million for the year ended December 31, 2021.

Noninterest expense was $330.2 million for the year ended December 31, 2022, compared to $89.1 million for the year ended December 31, 2021. The increase in noninterest expense was primarily due to a $196.2 million impairment charge on intangible assets and a $32.4 million increase in salaries and benefits expense.

Income tax expense was $6.7 million for the year ended December 31, 2022, compared to $6.9 million for the same period in 2021. Our effective tax rates for the years ended December 31, 2022 and 2021 were (0.7)% and 8.1%, respectively. The decrease in the Company’s effective tax rate in 2022 was primarily related to losses incurred in the fourth quarter of 2022. Due to the uncertainty of future earnings, the deferred tax asset balance of $342.0 million was subject to a 100% valuation allowance at December 31, 2022. The income tax expense recorded in 2022 was primarily due to the transition to this valuation allowance, resulting in the expensing of the $6.5 million deferred tax asset balance as of December 31, 2021. The deferred tax asset balance associated with net operating losses will carry forward indefinitely and can be utilized against 80% of future periods taxable income.

Loan Portfolio

Total loans, including net loans held-for-investment and loans held-for-sale, were $590.2 million at December 31, 2022, a decrease of $802.3 million, or 57.6%, from September 30, 2022, and a decrease of $1.2 billion, or 66.9%, from December 31, 2021. Given the current macro environment, the rising interest rate environment and related reduction in mortgage volumes, Silvergate exited its mortgage warehouse lending product in the fourth quarter of 2022.

Securities

The total securities portfolio decreased $5.7 billion, or 49.8%, from $11.4 billion at September 30, 2022, and decreased $2.9 billion, or 33.5%, from $8.6 billion at December 31, 2021, to $5.7 billion at December 31, 2022. In order to accommodate sustained lower deposit levels and to maintain a highly liquid balance sheet, Silvergate sold $5.2 billion of debt securities for cash proceeds during the fourth quarter of 2022. The sale resulted in a loss on the sale of securities of $751.4 million during the fourth quarter of 2022. In addition, the Company recorded a $134.5 million impairment charge related to an estimated $1.7 billion of securities it expects to sell in the first quarter of 2023 to reduce borrowings. As of December 31, 2022, all securities which were previously classified as held-to-maturity had been transferred to available-for-sale.

Capital Ratios

At December 31, 2022, the Company’s ratio of common equity to total assets was 3.61%, compared with 7.36% at September 30, 2022, and 8.84% at December 31, 2021. At December 31, 2022, the Company’s book value per common share was $12.93, compared to $35.94 at September 30, 2022, and $46.55 at December 31, 2021. The decrease in the Company’s book value per common share from September 30, 2022 was primarily due to the mark-to-market impact of reclassifying securities from held-to-maturity to available-for-sale, the valuation allowance on deferred tax assets and the impairment charge on intangible assets.

At December 31, 2022, the Company had a tier 1 leverage ratio of 5.36%, common equity tier 1 capital ratio of 42.48%, tier 1 risk-based capital ratio of 57.07% and total risk-based capital ratio of 57.26%.

At December 31, 2022, the Bank had a tier 1 leverage ratio of 5.12%, common equity tier 1 capital ratio of 53.89%, tier 1 risk-based capital ratio of 53.89% and total risk-based capital ratio of 54.07%. These capital ratios each exceeded the “well capitalized” standards defined by federal banking regulations of 5.00% for tier 1 leverage ratio, 6.5% for common equity tier 1 capital ratio, 8.00% for tier 1 risk-based capital ratio and 10.00% for total risk-based capital ratio.

Subsequent Events

In 2022, the Company increased employee headcount at a rapid rate in an effort to keep up with its growing digital asset business and serve its customers. The Company has reduced headcount by approximately 200 employees, or 40%, in order to account for the economic realities facing the business and industry today. Reducing headcount will enable Silvergate to continue to offer a tailored customer experience, while prudently managing expenses in a more challenging macro environment. Impacted employees were notified on January 4, 2023, and the Company has provided these individuals with severance packages and job placement resources. The Company estimates aggregate costs associated with the reduction in force of approximately $8.1 million, including approximately $6.2 million in severance payments and $1.2 million in employee benefits. The majority of these costs will be incurred in the first quarter of 2023.

Subsequent to December 31, 2022 and through January 17, 2023 the Company received $1.5 billion in proceeds and recognized approximately $11.4 million of losses and $5.0 million of gains on sales of available-for-sale securities.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures
(Unaudited)

The Company uses certain non-GAAP financial measures to provide meaningful supplemental information regarding the Company’s operational performance and to enhance investors’ overall understanding of such financial performance. However, these non-GAAP financial measures are supplemental and are not a substitute for an analysis based on GAAP measures. As other companies may use different calculations for these adjusted measures, this presentation may not be comparable to other similarly titled adjusted measures reported by other companies.

This earnings release includes certain non-GAAP financial measures for the periods presented below in order to present our results of operations for that period on a basis consistent with our historical operations. Management believes that these non-GAAP financial measures provide useful information to investors that is supplementary to the Company’s financial condition, results of operations and cash flows computed in accordance with GAAP.

During the fourth quarter of 2022, the digital asset industry experienced a transformational shift, with significant over-leverage in the industry, leading to several high-profile bankruptcies. These dynamics led to a crisis of confidence across the ecosystem and led many industry participants to shift deposits away from digital asset trading platforms. The Company saw significant outflows of deposits during the quarter and took several actions to maintain cash liquidity, which included utilizing wholesale funding and subsequently sold debt securities to accommodate the sustained lower deposit levels and maintain its highly liquid balance sheet. This restructuring of the Company’s balance sheet led to the decision to reduce its expense base going forward by significantly reducing its workforce. The following adjustments represent the impact of these actions in response to the events that occurred in the fourth quarter of 2022 and are considered infrequent in nature. The likelihood that these charges will occur in subsequent periods may depend on deposit levels and customer behavior.

Loss on securities: The Company sold securities in order to manage liquidity and recognized net losses related to the declines in market values relative to amortized cost. In addition, an other than temporary impairment charge was recorded for securities that the Company will more likely than not be required to sell before recovery of its amortized cost basis.

Loss on derivatives: In conjunction with the securities sales the Company, de-designated and sold certain related derivatives hedging fair value of securities and realized net losses on the change in fair value on the derivative instruments related to the timing of the sales of derivatives.

Restructuring charges: Restructuring charges includes direct costs related to reduction in force efforts or other exit and disposal activities, such as decisions to no longer provide certain products. Costs related to reduction in force actions primarily consist of one-time termination benefits for affected employees including severance payments, employee benefit payments, accelerated stock-based compensation expense and other related costs, such as job placement services and legal costs.

Impairment of intangible assets: In January 2022, the Company purchased certain developed technology assets related to running a block-chain-based payment network. In the fourth quarter of 2022, the Company determined that based on recent changes in market conditions of the digital asset industry, the likelihood of the launch of a blockchain-based payment solution was no longer imminent. The Company performed an impairment analysis and took an impairment charge of $196.2 million.

Income taxes: The tax effect adjustment below was determined by calculating the estimated annual effective tax rate on adjusted income before income taxes and applying the rate to pre-tax income. The difference between the estimated income tax and the income tax expense or benefit as reported was included as a tax effect adjustment.

Adjusted diluted shares: Adjusted earnings per diluted share is calculated by dividing adjusted net income available to common shareholders by the weighted average common shares outstanding adjusted for the dilutive effects of all potential shares of common stock. In periods where a net loss attributable to common shareholders was reported, the diluted shares were the same as basic shares because the effects of potentially dilutive shares were anti-dilutive.
