    • In June, the Bank announced the formation of Edge Ventures, a wholly-owned subsidiary. Edge Ventures was created as a management company providing oversight, alignment and structure for MVB’s Fintech companies and allocates resources to help incubate venture businesses and technologies acquired and developed by MVB.

MANAGEMENT OVERVIEW

Throughout 2021, Team MVB continued to differentiate itself by generating growth in loans, including loans of branches held-for-sale, of $57.5 million, or 3%, from March 31, 2021, and $257.2 million, or 17%, from June 30, 2020. This loan growth will enhance future profitability and was funded by the sustained and robust growth in NIB deposits of $95.4 million, or 11%, from March 31, 2021, and $404.1 million, or 76%, from June 30, 2020. With NIB deposits as a percentage of total deposits up to 41.8% as of June 30, 2021, the Company’s strategy to evolve its deposit mix by replacing high-cost deposits with NIB deposits has proved to be successful and viable long-term. The Company generated net income of $9.2 million for the second quarter.

“MVB continues to build a best-in-class deposit funding base. In the second quarter, we achieved a huge milestone with NIB deposits now representing nearly 42% of total deposits. This bodes well for our future in a potentially rising rate environment. Our loan growth and loan quality are also exceeding expectations,” said Larry F. Mazza, President and CEO, MVB Financial. “We are seeing tangible progress in our various Fintech initiatives and continue to heavily invest in the build-out of that business, putting more ‘tech’ in our ‘fin’ by closing on the Trabian acquisition, more than doubling the size of the Trabian software development team and launching MVB Edge Ventures during the second quarter of 2021.”

LOANS

Loans, including loans of branches held-for-sale totaling $54.5 million, were $1.75 billion as of June 30, 2021, an increase of $57.5 million, or 3%, from March 31, 2021, and an increase of $257.2 million, or 17%, from June 30, 2020. Included in loans are PPP loans totaling $207.3 million at June 30, 2021, an increase of $16.7 million, or 9%, from March 31, 2021, and $117.5 million, or 131%, from June 30, 2020. The increase in loans was driven by increased commercial lending production, including the impact of the addition of a Small Business Administration (“S(BA)“) lending team during the fourth quarter of 2020. During the quarter ended June 30, 2021, the S(BA) team originated 7(a) loans totaling $12.3 million and sold 7(a) loans totaling $9.8 million for a gain on sale of $1.3 million.

The tax-equivalent yield on loans, including PPP loans, was 4.31% for the quarter ended June 30, 2021, a decrease of seven basis points from the quarter ended March 31, 2021 and a decrease of 43 basis points from the quarter ended June 30, 2020. These decreases were primarily the result of a decrease in the yield on commercial loans.

DEPOSITS

Deposits totaled $2.23 billion as of June 30, 2021, an increase of $12.6 million, or 1%, from March 31, 2021 and an increase of $365.2 million, or 20%, from June 30, 2020. NIB deposits totaled $932.7 million as of June 30, 2021, an increase of $95.4 million, or 11%, from March 31, 2021 and an increase of $404.1 million, or 76%, from June 30, 2020.

NET INTEREST INCOME

Net interest income for the quarter ended June 30, 2021 was $19.1 million, an increase of $1.6 million, or 9%, from the quarter ended March 31, 2021 and an increase of $0.6 million, or 3%, from the quarter ended June 30, 2020. On a fully tax-equivalent basis, net interest margin for the quarter ended June 30, 2021 was 3.24%, a decrease of two basis points versus the quarter ended March 31, 2021 and a decrease of 54 basis points versus the quarter ended June 30, 2020. Please see the table on page 16 for a reconciliation between net interest margin and net interest margin on a fully tax-equivalent basis, a non-GAAP measure. Net interest margin was primarily impacted by excess liquidity and PPP loans. For the quarter ended June 30, 2021, the excess liquidity from increased cash balances accounted for 11 basis points of the decrease and the PPP loans accounted for 21 basis points of the decrease. The tax-equivalent adjustments are added to net interest income and were $0.4 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2021, $0.4 million for the quarter ended March 31, 2021 and $0.3 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2020. Excluding the impact from the April 2020 acquisition of The First State Bank (“First State”), the fully-tax equivalent net interest margin for the quarter ended June 30, 2021 would have decreased 20 basis points.

Interest income increased $1.8 million, or 9%, compared to the quarter ended March 31, 2021 and decreased $0.9 million, or 4%, compared to the quarter ended June 30, 2020. The increase was primarily driven by growth in the interest income on commercial loans. The tax-equivalent yield on commercial loans decreased five basis points due to the average balance of commercial loans outpacing the increase in interest income compared to the quarter ended March 31, 2021. The 43-basis point decrease in the yield on commercial loans and the 118-basis point decrease in the yield on investments drove the 90-basis point decrease in the tax-equivalent yield on earning assets compared to the quarter ended June 30, 2020.

Interest expense increased $0.2 million, or 14%, compared to the quarter ended March 31, 2021 and decreased $1.5 million, or 46%, compared to the quarter ended June 30, 2020. The one-basis point decrease in the cost of interest-bearing liabilities compared to the quarter ended March 31, 2021 was driven by a 17-basis point decrease in the cost of certificates of deposit, while the overall cost of deposits remained flat. The 46-basis point decrease in the cost of interest-bearing liabilities compared to the quarter ended June 30, 2020 was driven by a 55-basis point decrease in the cost of deposits.

Despite a decrease in the Company’s average NIB balances of $11.6 million from the quarter ended March 31, 2021, the Company maintained a 17-basis point favorable spread on the tax-equivalent net interest margin for the quarter ended June 30, 2021, compared to a 20-basis point favorable spread for the quarter ended March 31, 2021. An increase in the Company’s average NIB balances of $355.8 million from the quarter ended June 30, 2020 helped to maintain a 17-basis point favorable spread on the tax-equivalent net interest margin for the quarter ended June 30, 2021 compared to a 27-basis point favorable spread for the same period in 2020.

ASSET QUALITY

The release of allowance for loan losses totaled $1.5 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2021, as compared to provision for loan losses of $0.6 million and $6.6 million for the quarters ended March 31, 2021 and June 30, 2020, respectively. The release of allowance for loan losses was primarily the result of improvement in the qualitative adjustment factors within the allowance methodology. In addition, changes to the outstanding balances of the loan portfolios, changes to the level of recognized charge-offs and changes in the resulting historical loss rates, and adjustments to the risk grading of loans within the portfolio were all contributing factors in the ultimate change from provision for loan losses to the release of allowance for loan losses. Nonperforming loans totaled $15.5 million, or 0.9% of total loans, as of June 30, 2021, compared to 0.7% of total loans as of March 31, 2021 and compared to 0.9% of total loans as of June 30, 2020. Criticized loans as a percentage of total loans were 7.3%, a decrease of 70 basis points, or 9%, from March 31, 2021, and an increase of 46 basis points, or 7%, from June 30, 2020.

NONINTEREST INCOME

Noninterest income totaled $13.6 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2021, an increase of $1.2 million, or 10%, from the quarter ended March 31, 2021 and a decrease of $31.9 million, or 70%, from the quarter ended June 30, 2020.

The $1.2 million increase in noninterest income from the quarter ended March 31, 2021 was due to increases in the gain on sale of loans of $1.1 million, in compliance consulting income of $0.6 million, in the gain on sale of available-for-sale securities of $0.6 million, in payment card and service charge income of $0.4 million, and in the holding gain on equity securities of $0.2 million. These increases were partially offset by a decrease in equity method investment income related to the Company’s investment in Intercoastal Mortgage Company, LLC (“ICM”) of $1.9 million.

The $31.9 million decrease in noninterest income from the quarter ended June 30, 2020 was due to decreases in mortgage-related income of $28.4 million from the transition to the equity method from the mortgage combination with ICM that occurred in July 2020 and the gains on acquisition and divestiture activity of $14.3 million from the Company’s strategic transactions in the second quarter of 2020, including $9.6 million from the sale of Eastern Panhandle, WV banking centers and $4.7 million from the bargain purchase gain from the acquisition of First State. These decreases were partially offset by increases in equity method investment income related to the Company’s investment in ICM of $4.5 million, payment card and service charge income of $1.4 million, gain on sale of loans of $1.4 million, gain on sale of available-for-sale securities of $1.2 million, compliance consulting income of $0.9 million and holding gain on equity securities of $0.7 million.

The Company expects continued growth in payment card and service charge income as a result of several sponsoring agreements and new products and services as a result of recent investments in Fintech capabilities.

NONINTEREST EXPENSE

Noninterest expense totaled $23.4 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2021, an increase of $4.3 million, or 22%, from the quarter ended March 31, 2021 and a decrease of $9.9 million, or 30%, from the quarter ended June 30, 2020.

The $4.3 million increase in noninterest expense from the quarter ended March 31, 2021 was due to increases in salaries and employee benefits of $1.8 million, in professional fees of $0.7 million, in data processing and communications expense of $0.5 million, and in travel, entertainment, dues and subscriptions of $0.3 million. The increase in salaries and employee benefits was driven by increases of $0.8 million at Chartwell Compliance, $0.5 million at Trabian, $0.2 million at the Bank, and $0.2 million at the Holding Company. These increases were due to 53 net new hires to further build-out the Fintech vertical at the Bank, Chartwell Compliance and the shared services at the Holding Company, as well as annual salary increases for existing employees during the second quarter of 2020.

The $9.9 million decrease in noninterest expense from the quarter ended June 30, 2020 was due to decreases in salaries and employee benefits of $9.0 million, in mortgage processing expense of $0.9 million and in professional fees of $0.5 million. The decrease in salaries and employee benefits was primarily due to the mortgage combination with ICM in July 2020.
