  • The SEN handled 137,947 transactions in the second quarter of 2021, a decrease of 17% compared to 166,772 transactions in the first quarter of 2021, and an increase of 242% compared to 40,286 transactions in the second quarter of 2020
  • Digital currency customer related fee income for the quarter was $11.3 million, compared to $7.1 million for the first quarter of 2021, and $2.4 million for the second quarter of 2020
  • Digital currency customers grew to 1,224 at June 30, 2021, compared to 1,104 at March 31, 2021, and 881 at June 30, 2020

Alan Lane, president and chief executive officer of Silvergate, commented, “It is an exciting time to be at Silvergate, and the second quarter was no exception. We nearly doubled pre-tax income compared to the prior quarter, driven by strong demand for our growing suite of digital currency related solutions powered by the Silvergate Exchange Network (SEN). In the second quarter of 2021, we continued to add new customers to the platform, grew network volume to a record $240 billion, and surpassed $10 million of transaction revenue for the first time. We also continued to prudently grow SEN Leverage, our differentiated bitcoin secured lending offering.”

“In addition, we continued to build our stablecoin infrastructure capabilities, including our announcement to be the exclusive issuer of U.S. dollar backed stablecoins known as Diem USD,” continued Mr. Lane. “We believe stablecoins present a massive and unique opportunity, and with the development of an appropriate regulatory framework have the potential to become an alternative payment rail for customers around the world.”

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

The Company’s securities portfolio includes tax-exempt municipal bonds with tax-exempt income from these securities calculated and presented below on a taxable equivalent basis. Net interest income, net interest spread and net interest margin are presented on a taxable equivalent basis to consistently reflect income from taxable securities and tax-exempt securities based on the federal statutory tax rate of 21.0%.

Net interest income on a taxable equivalent basis totaled $31.2 million for the second quarter of 2021, compared to $23.5 million for the first quarter of 2021, and $16.5 million for the second quarter of 2020.

Compared to the first quarter of 2021, net interest income increased $7.7 million, due to increased interest income in all asset categories, with the largest driver being higher balances of securities, while interest expense remained flat. Average total interest earning assets increased by $3.7 billion for the second quarter of 2021 compared to the first quarter of 2021, primarily due to increased digital currency related deposits that were invested in securities in the first and second quarter of 2021. The average yield on interest earning assets decreased from 1.35% for the first quarter of 2021 to 1.17% for the second quarter of 2021, primarily due to lower yields on securities. The lower yields on securities were driven by the impact of securities purchases during the quarter at lower rates than the preexisting portfolio. Average interest bearing liabilities decreased $19.7 million for the second quarter of 2021 compared to the first quarter of 2021, due to a decrease in interest bearing deposits. The average rate paid on total interest bearing liabilities increased from 0.89% for the first quarter of 2021 to 1.02% for the second quarter of 2021, driven by the decrease in lower cost interest bearing deposits, which resulted in a larger proportion of higher cost subordinated debentures as a percentage of total interest bearing liabilities.

Compared to the second quarter of 2020, net interest income increased $14.7 million, due to an increase of $13.1 million in interest income and a decrease of $1.7 million in interest expense. Average total interest earning assets increased by $8.7 billion for the second quarter of 2021 compared to the second quarter of 2020, due to an increase in noninterest bearing deposits and equity, which resulted in higher levels of interest earning deposits in other banks and securities. In addition, average loans increased by 52.9% due to increases in mortgage warehouse loans, driven by elevated mortgage refinance activity and increased SEN Leverage lending, which was launched in the first quarter of 2020. The average yield on total interest earning assets decreased from 3.51% for the second quarter of 2020 to 1.17% for the second quarter of 2021, primarily due to interest earning deposits in other banks being a greater percentage of interest earning assets, and lower yields being realized on interest earning deposits, securities and loans. The lower yields were due to declines in the federal funds rate and London Interbank Offered Rate (“LIBOR”), which declines were partially offset by the impact of interest rate floors. Average interest bearing liabilities decreased $171.1 million for the second quarter of 2021 compared to the second quarter of 2020, due to calling the remaining balance of brokered certificates of deposit in the second quarter of 2020 as well as reducing FHLB borrowings in 2021. The average rate on total interest bearing liabilities decreased from 2.78% for the second quarter of 2020 to 1.02% for the second quarter of 2021, primarily due to the impact of calling the remaining balance of brokered certificates of deposits in the second quarter of 2020, which included $1.2 million of accelerated premium expense in addition to $0.3 million of coupon interest expense for the second quarter of 2020.

Net interest margin for the second quarter of 2021 was 1.16%, compared to 1.33% for the first quarter of 2021, and 3.14% for the second quarter of 2020. The decrease in the net interest margin compared to the first quarter of 2021 was primarily driven by lower yields on securities due to the impact of securities purchases during the quarter at lower rates compared to the preexisting portfolio. The net interest margin decrease from the second quarter of 2020 was primarily due to a higher proportion of interest earning deposits in other banks as a percentage of total interest earning assets, as well as lower yields on interest earning deposits and securities due to a declining interest rate environment partially offset by lower interest expense as a result of calling the outstanding brokered certificates of deposits in the second quarter of 2020.

(1) Interest income on tax-exempt securities is presented on a taxable equivalent basis using the federal statutory tax rate of 21.0% for all periods presented.
(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, on a taxable equivalent basis, divided by average interest earning assets for the same period.

Provision for Loan Losses

The Company did not record a provision for loan losses for the second quarter of 2021 or for the first quarter of 2021, compared to a provision of $0.2 million for the second quarter of 2020.

Noninterest Income

Noninterest income for the second quarter of 2021 was $12.1 million, an increase of $4.0 million, or 49.2%, from the first quarter of 2021. The primary driver of this increase was a $4.2 million, or 58.7%, increase in deposit related fees as a result of higher cash management fees and foreign currency exchange income from digital currency related customers.

Noninterest income for the second quarter of 2021 increased by $6.6 million, or 122.1%, compared to the second quarter of 2020. This increase was primarily due to a $8.9 million, or 363.8%, increase in deposit related fees and a $0.3 million, or 67.3% increase in mortgage warehouse fee income, partially offset by a $2.6 million decrease in gain on sale of securities.

The increase in noninterest expense compared to prior quarter and second quarter of 2020 was primarily driven by increased federal deposit insurance expense resulting from the significant growth in digital currency deposits and by ongoing investments related to strategic growth initiatives.

Income Tax Expense (Benefit)

Income tax benefit was $2,000 for the second quarter of 2021, compared to a benefit of $1.2 million for the first quarter of 2021, and an expense of $1.8 million for the second quarter of 2020. Our effective tax rate for the second quarter of 2021 was zero, compared to (10.5)% for the first quarter of 2021, and 25.0% for the second quarter of 2020. The lower effective tax rate for the second quarter of 2021 and the first quarter of 2021 when compared to the second quarter of 2020 was due to significant tax benefits recognized on the exercise of stock options and the impact of tax-exempt income.

Balance Sheet

Deposits

At June 30, 2021, deposits totaled $11.4 billion, an increase of $4.4 billion, or 62.4%, from March 31, 2021, and an increase of $9.7 billion, or 580.6%, from June 30, 2020. Noninterest bearing deposits totaled $11.3 billion, representing approximately 99.3% of total deposits at June 30, 2021, an increase of $4.4 billion from the prior quarter end, and a $9.7 billion increase compared to June 30, 2020. The increase in total deposits from the prior quarter end was driven by an increase in deposits from digital currency exchanges, institutional investors in digital assets and other fintech related customers, with elevated client activity evidenced by the record volume of SEN transactions during the quarter. The Bank’s 10 largest depositors accounted for $5.3 billion in deposits, or approximately 46.7% of total deposits at June 30, 2021, compared to $2.8 billion in deposits, or approximately 40.6% of total deposits at March 31, 2021, substantially all of which are from customers operating in the digital currency industry.

Our continued growth has been accompanied by significant fluctuations in the level of our deposits, in particular our deposits from customers operating in the digital currency industry, as our customers in this industry typically carry higher balances over the weekend to take advantage of the 24/7 availability of the SEN, and carry lower balances during the business week. The Bank’s average total digital currency customer deposits during the second quarter of 2021 amounted to $9.9 billion, the high and low daily total digital currency deposit levels during such time were $11.8 billion and $6.8 billion, respectively, compared to an average of $6.4 billion during the first quarter of 2021, and high and low daily deposit levels of $8.4 billion and $4.6 billion, respectively.

Demand for new deposit accounts is generated by the Company’s banking platform for innovators that includes the SEN, which is enabled through Silvergate’s proprietary API, and other cash management solutions. These tools enable Silvergate’s customers to grow their businesses and scale operations. The following table sets forth a breakdown of the Company’s digital currency customer base and the deposits held by such customers at the dates noted below:

The weighted average cost of deposits for the second quarter of 2021 and for the first quarter of 2021 was 0.00%, compared to 0.37% for the second quarter of 2020. The decreases in the weighted average cost of deposits compared to the second quarter of 2020 was driven by the absence of any interest expense associated with brokered certificates of deposit, which were called in the second quarter of 2020.

As of June 30, 2021, the remaining loans in deferral due to COVID-19 are as follows:

Forward Looking Statements

Statements in this earnings release may constitute forward-looking statements within the meaning of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended. These forward-looking statements reflect our current views with respect to, among other things, future events and our financial performance. These statements are often, but not always, made through the use of words or phrases such as “may,” “should,” “could,” “predict,” “potential,” “believe,” “will likely result,” “expect,” “continue,” “will,” “anticipate,” “seek,” “estimate,” “intend,” “plan,” “project,” “projection,” “forecast,” “goal,” “target,” “would,” “aim” and “outlook,” or the negative version of those words or other comparable words or phrases of a future or forward-looking nature. These forward-looking statements are not historical facts, and are based on current expectations, estimates and projections about our industry and management’s beliefs and certain assumptions made by management, many of which, by their nature, are inherently uncertain and beyond our control. The inclusion of these forward-looking statements should not be regarded as a representation by us or any other person that such expectations, estimates and projections will be achieved. Although we believe that the expectations reflected in these forward-looking statements are reasonable as of the date made, such forward-looking statements are not guarantees of future performance and are subject to risks, assumptions and uncertainties that are difficult to predict. For information about other important factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from those discussed in the forward-looking statements contained in this release, please refer to the Company’s public reports filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission.

Further, given its ongoing and dynamic nature, it is difficult to predict the full impact of the COVID-19 outbreak on our business. The extent of such impact will depend on future developments, which are highly uncertain, including when the coronavirus can be controlled and abated and when and how the economy may be reopened. As the result of the COVID-19 pandemic and the related adverse local and national economic consequences, we could be subject to any of the following risks, any of which could have a material, adverse effect on our business, financial condition, liquidity, and results of operations: the demand for our products and services may decline, making it difficult to grow assets and income; if the economy is unable to fully reopen, and high levels of unemployment continue for an extended period of time, loan delinquencies, problem assets, and foreclosures may increase, resulting in increased charges and reduced income; collateral for loans, especially real estate, may decline in value, which could cause loan losses to increase; our allowance for loan losses may increase if borrowers experience financial difficulties, which will adversely affect our net income; the net worth and liquidity of loan guarantors may decline, impairing their ability to honor commitments to us; as the result of the decline in the Federal Reserve Board’s target federal funds rate to near 0%, the yield on our assets may decline to a greater extent than the decline in our cost of interest-bearing liabilities, reducing our net interest margin and spread and reducing net income; our cyber security risks are increased as the result of an increase in the number of employees working remotely; and FDIC premiums may increase if the agency experiences additional resolution costs.

Any forward-looking statement speaks only as of the date of this earnings release, and we do not undertake any obligation to publicly update or review any forward-looking statement, whether because of new information, future developments or otherwise, except as required by law. New risks and uncertainties may emerge from time to time, and it is not possible for us to predict their occurrence. In addition, we cannot assess the impact of each risk and uncertainty on our business or the extent to which any risk or uncertainty, or combination of risks and uncertainties, may cause actual results to differ materially from those contained in any forward-looking statements.
