Revenues Decline, Costs Fall

Texas Capital’s net interest income was around $197 million, down 6% year over year, as a fall in interest expenses was partly muted by lower interest income. Net interest margin contracted 20 basis points (bps) year over year to 2.10%.
Non-interest income decreased 57% to $30.1 million. The decline primarily resulted from a dip in net gain on the sale of loans held for sale as well as brokered loan fees, offset by increases in service charges on deposit accounts and other non-interest income.
Non-interest expenses decreased 32% to $149.1 million from the prior-year quarter. This mainly resulted from decreases in marketing expenses, communication and technology expenses, servicing-related and merger-related expenses.
