Results of Operations, Quarter Ended December 31, 2021

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 $40.2 million for the fourth quarter of 2021, compared to $39.0 million for the third quarter of 2021, and $22.4 million for the fourth quarter of 2020.

Compared to the third quarter of 2021, net interest income increased $1.2 million, due to increased interest income, while interest expense remained flat. Average total interest earning assets increased by $2.2 billion for the fourth quarter of 2021 compared to the third quarter of 2021, primarily due to increased interest earning deposits in other banks. The average yield on interest earning assets decreased from 1.27% for the third quarter of 2021 to 1.11% for the fourth quarter of 2021, primarily due to lower yields on recently purchased securities and, to a lesser extent, interest earning deposits in other banks being a greater percentage of interest earning assets.

Compared to the fourth quarter of 2020, net interest income increased $17.8 million due to increased interest income, with the largest driver being higher balances of securities, while interest expense remained relatively flat. Average total interest earning assets increased by $11.3 billion for the fourth quarter of 2021 compared to the fourth quarter of 2020, due to an increase in noninterest bearing deposits, which were deployed into securities and interest earning deposits in other banks. The average yield on total interest earning assets decreased from 2.89% for the fourth quarter of 2020 to 1.11% for the fourth quarter of 2021, primarily due to interest earning deposits in other banks being a greater percentage of interest earning assets, and lower yields on securities purchased throughout 2021. Average interest bearing liabilities decreased $44.3 million for the fourth quarter of 2021 compared to the fourth quarter of 2020, due to lower balances of interest bearing deposits and reduced FHLB advances in 2021. The average rate on total interest bearing liabilities increased from 0.87% for the fourth quarter of 2020 to 1.17% for the fourth quarter of 2021, primarily due to the decrease in lower cost interest bearing deposits and FHLB advances, which resulted in a larger proportion of higher cost subordinated debentures as a percentage of total interest bearing liabilities.

Net interest margin for the fourth quarter of 2021 was 1.11%, compared to 1.26% for the third quarter of 2021, and 2.85% for the fourth quarter of 2020. The decrease in the net interest margin compared to the third quarter of 2021 was primarily due to lower yields on recently purchased securities and, to a lesser extent, interest earning deposits in other banks being a greater percentage of interest earning assets. The decrease in the net interest margin compared to the fourth quarter of 2020 was primarily due to a higher proportion of interest earning deposits as a percentage of total interest earning assets, as well as lower yields on securities due to a declining interest rate environment.

Provision for Loan Losses

The Company did not record a provision for loan losses for the fourth quarter of 2021, the third quarter of 2021, or for the fourth quarter of 2020 as a result of management’s assessment of the level of the allowance for loan losses relative to the size and composition of the loan portfolio, among other factors.

Noninterest Income

Noninterest income for the fourth quarter of 2021 was $11.1 million, a decrease of $3.0 million, or 21.3%, from the third quarter of 2021. The primary driver of this decrease was a $5.1 million decrease in gain on sale of securities offset by a $1.2 million, or 14.8%, increase in deposit related fees as a result of higher cash management fees from digital currency related customers and a $0.9 million increase in other income due to a gain on sale of other assets.

Noninterest income for the fourth quarter of 2021 increased by $6.2 million, or 128.0%, compared to the fourth quarter of 2020. This increase was primarily due to a $5.5 million, or 144.0%, increase in deposit related fees and a $0.9 million increase in other income due to a gain on sale of other assets, partially offset by a $0.3 million, or 27.9% decrease in mortgage warehouse fee income.

The increase in noninterest expense compared to prior quarter was primarily due to an increase in salaries and employee benefits. The increase in noninterest expense from the fourth quarter of 2020 was primarily driven by an increase in salaries and employee benefits and increased federal deposit insurance expense resulting from the significant growth in digital currency deposits. The increase in noninterest expense from the prior year was partially offset by a decrease in occupancy and equipment expense related to a $2.3 million impairment charge recorded in the fourth quarter of 2020.

Income Tax Expense (Benefit)

Income tax expense was $2.2 million for the fourth quarter of 2021, compared to $5.9 million for the third quarter of 2021, and a benefit of $0.1 million for the fourth quarter of 2020. Our effective tax rate for the fourth quarter of 2021 was 9.4%, compared to 20.0% for the third quarter of 2021, and (1.6)% for the fourth quarter of 2020. The lower effective tax rates for the fourth quarter of 2021 and 2020, compared to the third quarter of 2021 were due to higher excess tax benefits recognized on the exercise of stock options and tax-exempt income earned on certain municipal bonds.

Results of Operations, Year Ended December 31, 2021

Net income available to common shareholders for the year ended December 31, 2021 was $75.5 million, or $2.91 per diluted common share, compared to $26.0 million, or $1.36 per diluted share, for the comparable period in 2020.

Net interest income for the year ended December 31, 2021 was $129.3 million, compared to $72.4 million for the same period in 2020. The increase in net interest income was primarily due to a $50.8 million increase in interest income and a $6.1 million decrease in interest expense, primarily due to significant growth in our balance sheet.

Noninterest income for the year ended December 31, 2021 was $45.3 million, compared to $19.2 million for the same period in 2020. The increase in noninterest income was primarily due to a $24.6 million increase in fee income from our digital currency customers and a $1.5 million increase in gain on sale of securities. Digital currency customer related fee income for the year ended December 31, 2021 was $35.8 million, compared to $11.1 million for the year ended December 31, 2020.

Noninterest expense was $89.1 million for the year ended December 31, 2021, compared to $59.6 million for the year ended December 31, 2020. The increase in noninterest expense was primarily due to a $12.4 million increase in federal deposit insurance and a $9.3 million increase in salaries and benefits expense.

Income tax expense was $6.9 million for the year ended December 31, 2021, compared to $5.2 million for the same period in 2020. Our effective tax rates for the years ended December 31, 2021 and 2020 were 8.1% and 16.5%, respectively. The decrease in the Company’s effective tax rate in 2021 was primarily related to higher excess tax benefit from stock-based compensation and tax-exempt income earned on certain municipal bonds.

Balance Sheet

Deposits

At December 31, 2021, deposits totaled $14.3 billion, an increase of $2.6 billion, or 22.5%, from September 30, 2021, and an increase of $9.0 billion, or 172.3%, from December 31, 2020. Noninterest bearing deposits totaled $14.2 billion, representing approximately 99.5% of total deposits at December 31, 2021, an increase of $2.6 billion from the prior quarter end, and a $9.1 billion increase compared to December 31, 2020. The increase in total deposits from the prior year quarter end was driven by an increase in deposits from digital currency exchanges, institutional investors in digital assets and other fintech related customers. The Bank’s 10 largest depositors accounted for $6.5 billion in deposits, or approximately 45.3% of total deposits at December 31, 2021, compared to $5.3 billion in deposits, or approximately 45.6% of total deposits at September 30, 2021, and $2.5 billion in deposits, or approximately 47.5% of total deposits at December 31, 2020, 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 fourth quarter of 2021 amounted to $13.3 billion, with the high and low daily total digital currency deposit levels during such time being $16.0 billion and $10.2 billion, respectively, compared to an average of $11.2 billion during the third quarter of 2021, and high and low daily deposit levels of $12.6 billion and $9.8 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:

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.
