HomeStreet Reports First Quarter 2023 Results

HomeStreet, Inc. (Nasdaq: HMST) (including its consolidated subsidiaries, the "Company", "HomeStreet" or "we"), the parent company of HomeStreet Bank, today announced the financial results for the quarter ended March 31, 2023. 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 financial results continue to be adversely impacted by the now historically record velocity and magnitude of increases in short-term interest rates,” said Mark K. Mason, HomeStreet’s Chairman of the Board, President, and Chief Executive Officer. In light of these challenges, we have enhanced our on-balance sheet liquidity, continued to raise new deposits through promotional certificates of deposit and reduced new loan originations. Additionally, we have focused our new loan origination activity primarily on floating rate products such as commercial loans, residential construction loans and home equity loans. In February, we completed the acquisition of three branches in southern California which accounted for $322 million of deposits at the end of March. The new employees at these branches are great additions to our team and we look forward to growing our customer base in these new markets once the conversion process is complete. At March 31, 2023 our on-balance sheet liquidity was 19%, our uninsured deposits were only $1.0 billion, or 14% of total deposits, and $6.0 billion of contingent funding was available.”

“As expected, our net interest margin decreased in the first quarter due to decreases in lower cost transaction and savings deposits and overall higher funding costs. Due to the highly uncertain interest rate and economic environment going forward, we anticipate these funding cost pressures to continue, and, despite the future repricing of our loans and investment securities, we expect our net interest margin to decline somewhat for the remainder of 2023,” continued Mr. Mason. “To mitigate the impact of a lower net interest margin we have continued to reduce non-essential expenses while being mindful to preserve and protect our high quality lending lines of business, preserving our ability to grow earnings once the interest rate environment stabilizes and loan pricing and volumes normalize.”

As of and for the quarter ended March 31, 2023

  • Cash and cash equivalents increased to $377 million

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.

In this earnings 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 exclude intangible assets from the calculation of capital ratios; and (ii) an efficiency ratio which is the ratio of noninterest expense 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 expense impacts the comparability of our results to those companies whose operations are in states where assessed taxes on business are classified as income taxes.

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 requirements.

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 parties in the evaluation of companies in our industry. 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 reconciliations 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.
