NET INTEREST INCOME

For the fourth quarter of 2019, net interest income was $135.1 million, a decrease of $1.5 million from the third quarter of 2019. Net interest income (FTE)(1) was $137.8 million in the fourth quarter of 2019, a decrease of $1.6 million from the third quarter of 2019. The decreases in both net interest income and net interest income (FTE) were primarily driven by lower earning asset yields during the three months ended December 31, 2019 compared to the three months ended September 30, 2019. The fourth quarter net interest margin decreased 9 basis points to 3.48% from 3.57% in the previous quarter, while the net interest margin (FTE)(1) decreased 9 basis points to 3.55% from 3.64% during the same periods. The decreases in the net interest margin and net interest margin (FTE) were principally due to an 18 basis point decrease in the yield on earning assets, partially offset by a 9 basis point decrease in the cost of funds.

The Company's net interest margin (FTE) includes the impact of acquisition accounting fair value adjustments. During the fourth quarter of 2019, net accretion related to acquisition accounting increased $1.5 million from the prior quarter to $6.6 million for the quarter ended December 31, 2019. The third and fourth quarters of 2019, and the remaining estimated net accretion impact are reflected in the following table (dollars in thousands):

ASSET QUALITY/LOAN LOSS PROVISION

Overview

During the fourth quarter of 2019, the Company experienced decreases in nonperforming assets ('NPA') primarily due to nonaccrual customer payments and sales of foreclosed properties. Past due loan levels as a percentage of total loans held for investment at December 31, 2019 were higher than past due loan levels at September 30, 2019 and down from past due loan levels at December 31, 2018. The increase in past due loans from the prior quarter was primarily driven by a seasonal increase related to residential 1-4 family - consumer loans that were 30 days past due as of year-end of which the majority subsequently became current. Net charge-off levels decreased from the third quarter of 2019 and were primarily related to the third party consumer loan portfolio; as a result, the provision for loan losses decreased from the third quarter of 2019.

All nonaccrual and past due loan metrics discussed below exclude purchased credit impaired ('PCI') loans totaling $86.7 million (net of fair value mark of $18.2 million) at December 31, 2019.

(1) For a reconciliation of this non-GAAP financial measure, see Alternative Performance Measures (non-GAAP) section of the Key Financial Results.
(2) Estimated loan accretion presented is prior to the adoption of Accounting Standard Codification (ASC) 326 - Financial Instruments - Credit Losses (CECL).

Nonperforming Assets

At December 31, 2019, NPAs totaled $32.9 million, a decrease of $3.5 million or 9.6%, from September 30, 2019 and a decrease of $735,000 or 2.2%, from December 31, 2018. NPAs as a percentage of total outstanding loans at December 31, 2019 were 0.26%, a decline of 4 basis points from 0.30% at September 30, 2019 and a decline of 9 basis points from 0.35% at December 31, 2018. As the Company's NPAs have been at or near historic lows over the last several quarters, certain changes from quarter to quarter might stand out in comparison to one another but do not have a significant impact on the Company's overall asset quality position.

Past Due Loans

Past due loans still accruing interest totaled $76.6 million or 0.61% of total loans held for investment at December 31, 2019, compared to $55.1 million or 0.45% of total loans held for investment at September 30, 2019, and $61.9 million or 0.64% of total loans held for investment at December 31, 2018. Of the total past due loans still accruing interest $13.4 million or 0.11% of total loans held for investment were loans past due 90 days or more at December 31, 2019, compared to $12.0 million or 0.10% of total loans held for investment at September 30, 2019, and $8.9 million or 0.09% of total loans held for investment at December 31, 2018. The increase in past due loans was primarily driven by a seasonal increase related to residential 1-4 family - consumer loans that were 30 days past due as of year-end of which the majority subsequently became current.

Net Charge-offs

For the fourth quarter of 2019, net charge-offs were $4.6 million or 0.15% of total average loans on an annualized basis, compared to $7.7 million or 0.25% for the prior quarter, and $5.0 million or 0.21% for the fourth quarter last year. The majority of net charge-offs in the fourth quarter of 2019 were related to consumer loans. For the year ended December 31, 2019, net charge-offs were $20.9 million or 0.17% of total average loans compared to $11.1 million or 0.12%, for the year ended 2018.

Provision for Loan Losses

The provision for loan losses for the fourth quarter of 2019 was $3.1 million, a decrease of $6.0 million compared to the previous quarter and a decrease of $1.7 million compared to the fourth quarter in 2018. The decrease in the provision for loan losses from the previous quarter and from the prior year were primarily driven by lower levels of net charge-offs.

Allowance for Loan Losses ('ALL')

The ALL decreased $1.5 million from September 30, 2019 to $42.3 million at December 31, 2019, primarily due to lower incurred losses embedded in the third party consumer portfolio as it continues to pay down and an improved economic environment, partially offset by loan growth during the quarter. The ALL as a percentage of the total loan portfolio was 0.34% at December 31, 2019, 0.36% at September 30, 2019, and 0.42% at December 31, 2018.

The ratio of the ALL to nonaccrual loans was 149.8% at December 31, 2019, compared to 145.9% at September 30, 2019 and 152.3% at December 31, 2018. The current level of the allowance for loan losses reflects specific reserves related to nonperforming loans, current risk ratings on loans, net charge-off activity, loan growth, delinquency trends, and other credit risk factors that the Company considers important in assessing the adequacy of the allowance for loan losses.

NONINTEREST INCOME

Noninterest income decreased $18.9 million to $29.2 million for the quarter ended December 31, 2019 from $48.1 million in the prior quarter. The decrease from prior quarter was primarily driven by approximately $9.3 million in life insurance proceeds received during the third quarter related to a Xenith-acquired loan that had been charged off prior to the Company's acquisition of Xenith and a gain on sale of investment securities of approximately $7.1 million recorded during the third quarter. In addition, the fourth quarter noninterest income included a decline of approximately $2.0 million in loan related interest rate swap income due to lower transaction volumes and seasonally lower mortgage banking revenue of $685,000.

NONINTEREST EXPENSE

Noninterest expense decreased $17.4 million for the quarter ended December 31, 2019 from $111.7 million in the prior quarter. Excluding merger-related costs, amortization of intangible assets, and rebranding-related costs, operating noninterest expense(1) decreased $15.4 million or 14.9%, in the fourth quarter of 2019. The decrease in operating noninterest expense was primarily due to the recognition of approximately $16.4 million loss on debt extinguishment in the third quarter resulting from the repayment of approximately $140.0 million in FHLB advances and the termination of the related cash flow hedges. Salaries and benefits declined by $2.5 million, primarily due to lower incentive compensation expense and higher deferred costs related to new loan originations. These decreases were partially offset by increases in marketing expense of approximately $1.1 million, professional fees of $955,000 related to higher consulting costs, FDIC and other insurance expenses of $873,000 primarily due to a lower FDIC small bank assessment credit earned in the fourth quarter, and OREO and credit-related expense of approximately $542,000 due to OREO valuation adjustments driven by updated appraisals received during the quarter.

(1) These are non-GAAP financial measures. Net interest income (FTE), which is used in computing net interest margin (FTE) and operating efficiency ratio (FTE), provides valuable additional insight into the net interest margin and the efficiency ratio by adjusting for differences in tax treatment of interest income sources. The entire FTE adjustment is attributable to interest income on earning assets, which is used in computing yield on earning assets. Interest expense and the related cost of interest-bearing liabilities and cost of funds ratios are not affected by the FTE components.

(2) These are non-GAAP financial measures. Tangible common equity is used in the calculation of certain profitability, capital, and per share ratios. The Company believes tangible common equity and the related ratios are meaningful measures of capital adequacy because they provide a meaningful base for period-to-period and company-to-company comparisons, which the Company believes will assist investors in assessing the capital of the Company and its ability to absorb potential losses.

(3) These are non-GAAP financial measures. The Company believes that ROTCE is a meaningful supplement to GAAP financial measures and useful to investors because it measures the performance of a business consistently across time without regard to whether components of the business were acquired or developed internally.

In periods prior to December 31, 2018, the Company has not added amortization of intangibles, tax effected to operating net income (non-GAAP) when calculating operating ROTCE. The Company has adjusted its presentation for all periods in this release.

(4) These are non-GAAP financial measures. Operating measures exclude merger and rebranding-related costs unrelated to the Company's normal operations. The Company believes these measures are useful to investors as they exclude certain costs resulting from acquisition activity and allow investors to more clearly see the combined economic results of the organization's operations.

(5) All ratios at December 31, 2019 are estimates and subject to change pending the Company's filing of its FR Y9‑C. All other periods are presented as filed.

(6) The operating efficiency ratio (FTE) excludes the amortization of intangible assets and merger-related costs. This measure is similar to the measure utilized by the Company when analyzing corporate performance and is also similar to the measure utilized for incentive compensation. The Company believes this measure is useful to investors as it excludes certain costs resulting from acquisition activity allowing for greater comparability with others in the industry and allowing investors to more clearly see the combined economic results of the organization's operations.

In prior periods, the Company has not excluded the amortization of intangibles from noninterest expense when calculating the operating efficiency ratio (FTE). The Company has adjusted its presentation for all periods in this release to exclude the amortization of intangibles from noninterest expense.
