ITEM 1. BUSINESS.
In this Annual Report on Form 10-K, we refer to Umpqua Holdings Corporation as the "Company," "Umpqua," "we," "us," "our," or similar references.
This Annual Report on Form 10-K contains forward-looking statements within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933 and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, which are intended to be covered by the safe harbor for "forward-looking statements" provided by the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. These statements may include statements that expressly or implicitly predict future results, performance or events. Statements other than statements of historical fact are forward-looking statements. You can find many of these statements by looking for words such as "anticipates," "expects," "believes," "estimates," "intends" and "forecast" and words or phrases of similar meaning.
We make forward-looking statements about the projected impact on our business operations of the COVID-19 pandemic; Next Gen 2.0 initiatives including store consolidations, operational improvements, and facilities rationalizations; the sale of Umpqua Investments, Inc.; LIBOR; derivatives and hedging; the results and performance of models and economic forecasts used in our calculation of the allowance for credit loss; projected sources of funds and the Company's liquidity position; our securities portfolio; loan sales; adequacy of our allowance for credit losses, including the reserve for unfunded commitments; provision for credit losses; non-performing loans and future losses; performance of troubled debt restructurings; our commercial real estate portfolio, its collectability and subsequent charge-offs; resolution of non-accrual loans; PPP forgiveness and SBA fees; the economic environment; litigation; dividends; junior subordinated debentures; fair values of certain assets and liabilities, including mortgage servicing rights values and sensitivity analyses; tax rates; and the effect of accounting pronouncements and changes in accounting methodology. Risks that could cause results to differ from forward-looking statements we make are set forth in our filings with the SEC and include, without limitation: current and future economic and market conditions, including the effects of declines in housing and commercial real estate prices, high unemployment rates, and any slowdown in economic growth particularly in the western United States; the length and immediate and long-term effects of the COVID-19 pandemic, including on our credit quality and business operations, as well as its impact on general economic and financial market conditions and demand for our products; economic forecast variables that are either materially worse or better than end of year projections and deterioration in the economy that exceeds current consensus estimates; our ability to effectively manage problem credits; our ability to successfully implement technology, efficiency and operational excellence initiatives; our ability to successfully develop and market new products and technology; changes in laws or regulations; our ability to meet the closing conditions to complete the sale of Umpqua Investments, Inc.; and our ability to successfully negotiate with landlords or reconfigure facilities. We also caution that the amount and timing of any future common stock dividends or repurchases will depend on the earnings, cash requirements and financial condition of the Company, market conditions, capital requirements, applicable law and regulations (including federal securities laws and state and federal banking laws and regulations), and other factors deemed relevant by the Company's Board of Directors, and will be subject to regulatory approval or conditions.
Forward-looking statements involve substantial risks and uncertainties, many of which are difficult to predict and are generally beyond our control. There are many factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from those contemplated by these forward-looking statements. Risks and uncertainties include those set forth in our filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission and the following factors that might cause actual results to differ materially from those presented:
•the significant risks and uncertainties for our business, results of operations and financial condition, as well as our regulatory capital and liquidity ratios and other regulatory requirements, caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, which will depend on several factors, including the scope and duration of the pandemic, its influence on the economy and financial markets, the effectiveness of our work from home arrangements and staffing levels in operational facilities, challenges associated with our return to office plans such as maintaining a safe office environment and integrating at-home and in-office staff, the impact of market participants on which we rely and actions taken by governmental authorities and other third parties in response to the pandemic and the impact of lower equity market valuations on our service and management fee revenue;
•continued deterioration in economic conditions that could result in increased loan and lease losses, especially those risks associated with concentrations in real estate related loans;
•our ability to successfully implement and sustain information technology product and system enhancements and operational initiatives;
•our ability to attract new deposits and loans and leases;
•our ability to retain deposits, especially during store consolidations;
•demand for financial services in our market areas;
•competitive market pricing factors;
•our ability to effectively develop and implement new technology;
•continued market interest rate volatility;
•prolonged low interest rate environment;
•continued compression of our net interest margin;
•stability and cost of funding sources;
•continued availability of borrowings and other funding sources such as brokered and public deposits;
•changes in legal or regulatory requirements or the results of regulatory examinations that could increase expenses or restrict growth;
•our ability to recruit and retain key management and staff;
•availability of, and competition for, acquisition opportunities;
•our ability to raise capital or incur debt on reasonable terms;
•regulatory limits on the Bank's ability to pay dividends to the Company;
•financial services reform and the impact of legislation and implementing regulations on our business operations, including our compliance costs, interest expense, and revenue;
•a breach or failure of our operational or security systems, or those of our third-party vendors, including as a result of cyber-attacks; and
•competition, including from financial technology companies.
For a more detailed discussion of some of the risk factors, see the section entitled "Risk Factors" below. We do not intend to update any factors, except as required by SEC rules, or to publicly announce revisions to any of our forward-looking statements. Any forward-looking statement speaks only as of the date that such statement was made. You should consider any forward-looking statements in light of this explanation, and we caution you about relying on forward-looking statements.
We electronically file annual reports on Form 10-K, quarterly reports on Form 10-Q, current reports on Form 8-K, proxy and information statements and other information with the SEC. You may obtain these reports and statements, and any amendments, from the SEC's website at www.sec.gov.

Umpqua Holdings Corporation, an Oregon corporation, is a bank holding company currently designated as a financial holding company with two principal operating subsidiaries, Umpqua Bank and Umpqua Investments, Inc. The Bank's wholly-owned subsidiary, Financial Pacific Leasing, Inc., is a commercial equipment leasing company.
Umpqua Bank is the largest bank with headquarters in the Pacific Northwest and is considered one of the most innovative banks in the United States, recognized nationally and internationally for its unique company culture and customer experience strategy. The Bank provides a broad range of banking, wealth management, mortgage and other financial services to corporate, institutional, and individual customers.
Umpqua Bank's primary objective is to become the leading community-oriented financial services organization throughout the Western United States. We intend to increase market share, grow our assets and increase profitability and total shareholder return by differentiating ourselves from competitors through the following strategies:
Deliver on Corporate Strategic Objectives. The Company's 3-year (2018-2020) corporate strategic objectives branded as "Umpqua Next Gen" were designed to modernize the company, diversify and increase revenue, optimize processes and improve efficiency. Umpqua Next Gen builds on our customer-centric approach to banking, allowing us to differentiate ourselves in the marketplace and create a competitive advantage. The three pillars of Umpqua Next Gen include: Balanced Growth, Human Digital, and Operational Excellence. In late 2020, Umpqua launched "Next Gen 2.0" which further expands these objectives.
•Through Our Balanced Growth Initiatives, We Focus on Banking Full Customer Relationships. The Company has invested in broader product suites to meet the needs of customers across the spectrum of our business lines. We believe that Umpqua has the products and associate expertise necessary to support current and prospective customers. We believe we can bring the highest value to customers when internal lines of business work collaboratively to serve customers and exceed expectations. Umpqua's value proposition is to combine the product offerings of many larger competitors but deliver with a highly focused, customer centric approach. The importance of Balanced Growth initiatives have been embedded in modernizing our internal referral and goal-driven incentive plans to reward collaborative behavior and growth across product categories.
•Use A Human Digital Banking Approach to Retain and Expand Customer Base. As customer preferences and behaviors evolve with technological adoption, our strategy remains consistent: deliver an extraordinary experience across all customer touchpoints. As a result, we have developed our Human Digital banking approach, which uses technology to empower deeper, even more meaningful relationships with our customers across all lines of business. We believe this differentiates Umpqua and positions the Company well to adapt quickly as customer use of physical and digital channels evolves. Our innovative store concept remains a differentiator in this Human Digital approach as the combination of digital banking services, through platforms like Umpqua Go-To® and commercial focused applications. Our Human Digital approach enhances our ability to attract a broader range of customers and expand our value proposition across all channels.
•Become A More Efficient and Effective Company Through Operational Excellence Programs. The objectives of the operational excellence programs are to reduce redundancies, simplify processes, and ultimately bring associates closer to the customer. Umpqua has redesigned several key processes, including our commercial loan delivery and our deposit origination processes since the beginning of Umpqua Next Gen. In addition to combining similar functions throughout the Company, we have also simplified our supplier and vendor relationships by consolidating spend to key strategic partners.
Establish Strong Brand Awareness. We devote considerable resources to developing the "Umpqua Bank" brand through design strategy, marketing, and delivery through our customer-facing channels, as well as through active public relations, social media and community-based events and initiatives. Umpqua's goal is to connect with our customers and communities in fresh and engaging ways. The unique look and feel of our stores and interactive displays help demonstrate our commitment to being an innovative, customer-friendly provider of financial products and services, and our active community engagement and investments stand out with commercial customers. Our brand activation approach is based on actions, not just advertising, and builds strong consumer awareness of our products and services.
Prudently Manage Capital. An important part of our strategy is to continue to manage capital prudently, and to employ excess capital in a thoughtful and opportunistic manner that improves long-term shareholder returns. We accomplish this through organic growth and a top quartile dividend payout ratio for regional banks. We also opportunistically pursue strategic acquisitions, which could include technology-driven enterprises or banks and financial services companies in markets or lines of business where we see growth potential.
Growth Culture. We believe strongly that by investing in the professional growth of our associates and supporting the economic growth of our communities, we will create more opportunity to provide our products and services and to create deeper customer relationships across all divisions, from retail to mortgage and wholesale. Although a successful marketing program will attract customers to visit, well-trained and experienced associates are critical to solving customer needs with the right products and services.
Products and Services
We offer an array of financial products, delivered through traditional and digital channels, to meet the banking needs of our market area and target customers. To ensure the ongoing viability of our product offerings, we regularly examine the desirability and profitability of existing and potential new products. Our customers can access our products through online banking, mobile banking applications, including Umpqua Go-To® app, and Umpquabank.com.
Commercial Loans and Leases and Commercial Real Estate Loans. We offer specialized loans for corporate and commercial customers, including accounts receivable and inventory financing, multifamily loans, equipment loans, commercial equipment leases, international trade finance, real estate construction loans and permanent financing and Small Business Administration program financing as well as capital markets and treasury management services.
Treasury Management. As Umpqua focuses on banking the full customer relationship and meeting the needs of customers of all sizes, we offer treasury management products to our customers through our Global Payments & Deposits group. These products include ACH, wires, positive pay, remote deposit capture, integrated payables, commercial card, and foreign exchange related products. We also offer merchant services in coordination with a strategic partner, Worldpay.
Deposit Products. We offer deposit products, including non-interest bearing checking accounts, interest bearing checking and savings accounts, money market accounts and certificates of deposit. Interest-bearing accounts earn interest at rates established by management based on competitive market factors and management's desire to increase certain types or maturities of deposit liabilities. Our approach is to provide a streamlined customer experience that meets the customer's needs across all channels. This approach is designed to add value for the customer, increase products per household and generate related fee income.
Wealth Management. Through Umpqua's Private Bank, we serve high net worth individuals and families, and select non-profits and professional services firms, providing deposit, lending, and financial planning solutions. The Private Bank is designed to expand on Umpqua's existing high-touch customer experience and works collaboratively with other internal departments to offer a comprehensive, integrated approach designed to meet clients' financial needs.
Residential Real Estate Loans. Real estate loans are available for the construction, purchase, and refinancing of residential owner-occupied and rental properties. Borrowers can choose from a variety of fixed and adjustable rate options and terms. We sell most residential real estate loans that we originate into the secondary market. Servicing is retained on the majority of these loans.
Consumer Loans. We provide loans to individual borrowers for a variety of purposes, including secured and unsecured personal loans, home equity and personal lines of credit and motor vehicle loans.
Market Area and Competition
The geographic markets we serve are highly competitive for deposits, loans, leases and retail brokerage services. We compete with traditional banking institutions, as well as non-bank financial service providers, such as credit unions, brokerage firms, mortgage companies, and online based financial service providers. In our primary market areas of Oregon, Washington, California, Idaho, and Nevada, major national banks generally hold top market share positions. Competition also includes small community banks that operate in a concentrated area within our footprint and other regional banks that focus on commercial and retail banking.
As the industry becomes increasingly oriented toward technology-driven delivery systems, permitting transactions to be conducted on mobile devices and computers, non-bank institutions are able to attract customers and provide lending and other financial services even without offices located in our primary service area. Some insurance companies and brokerage firms compete for deposits by offering rates that are higher than the weighted average market price and may be inappropriate for the Bank in relation to its asset and liability management objectives.
Credit unions present a significant competitive challenge for our banking services and products. As credit unions currently enjoy an exemption from income tax, they are able to offer higher deposit rates and lower loan rates than banks can on a comparable basis. Credit unions are also not currently subject to certain regulatory constraints, such as the Community Reinvestment Act, which, among other things, requires us to implement procedures to make and monitor loans throughout the communities we serve. Adhering to such regulatory requirements raises the costs associated with our lending activities and reduces potential operating profits. Accordingly, we seek to compete by focusing on building customer relationships, providing superior service and offering a wide variety of commercial banking products.

The table also indicates the ranking by deposit size in each market. All information in the table was obtained from S&P Global, which compiles deposit data published by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation as of June 30, 2020 and updates the information for any bank mergers and acquisitions completed subsequent to the reporting date.

At Umpqua, we are committed to creating an environment where our associates are inspired to be their best. Umpqua is powered by a team of nearly 4,000 associates working together to provide expert banking solutions that are rooted in deep human connection. Our people are the key to our success. In return, we strive to create a work experience that allows our associates to use their skills and passions to make a difference, while growing their careers, and being recognized for their diverse talents, backgrounds, and perspectives.
The ability to attract, retain, develop, and engage a talented and diverse workforce is critical to executing our business strategy. As of December 31, 2020, we employed a total of 3,920 employees, 87% of which were full-time associates. Our workforce is comprised of customer-facing associates across our various business lines, as well as professionals in various support functions that enable the business. Approximately 28% of our workforce was comprised of frontline retail store associates, nearly 17% were in our Home Lending division, 22% were in our wholesale businesses, and the remaining 33% were in support functions such as technology, finance, risk, audit, and human resources.
Employee Health and Safety. As the COVID-19 pandemic emerged in early 2020, as a threat to health and safety of our workforce, we moved most of our non-store workforce to remote operations. We were well-positioned from a technology standpoint to make this pivot and continued to be productive as our teams shifted to a remote work environment. Over time, and after putting in place appropriate safety measures, we migrated back designated functions and departments that operate most effectively in an on-site work arrangement. As of December 31, 2020, 60% of our workforce continues to work either fully remotely, or with only intermittent on-site access up to a few hours a week.
Because our business is considered an essential service vital to our communities, keeping our stores operational while protecting our associates and our customers was of critical importance. For those associates working on-site, we established several safety protocols, including occupancy limits and controls, physical distancing requirements and barriers, daily personal health attestation, enhanced cleaning, and required face coverings. These practices applied as well to the non-store associates working at or visiting Umpqua locations.
In support of our associates, we established a pandemic pay program to provide supplemental assistance to associates who needed to take time away from work for COVID-related illness, suspected illness, quarantine, or for childcare issues due to school closure. As of December 31, 2020, nearly 20% of our associates have utilized this program.
Associate Experience. Our workforce decreased by 5% during 2020, which was driven primarily by natural attrition. We did not have any significant reduction-in-force activities that were pandemic-related, or otherwise. Turnover rate, as calculated in our payroll system, in 2020 was 20%, and of this, 17% was voluntary.
We attract and reward our associates by providing market competitive compensation and benefit practices. Our compensation approach is designed to pay for performance and reward associate contributions. Each position has an established compensation range and associates have the opportunity to earn at the high end of their respective range for top performance. Our salary structure is informed by market data, and recognizing that the compensation environment is dynamic, we review and adjust our pay ranges regularly. This includes an ongoing practice of analyzing pay equity. In addition, many positions have incentive plans to encourage achievement of various corporate, business unit, and individual goals.
We offer competitive medical, dental, vision, life, short and long-term disability, and accident insurance, in addition to paid time off for vacation, sick time, and volunteerism. These programs are available to associates working 20 hours per week or more and are assessed regularly against market benchmarks.
On a regular basis, we conduct an associate engagement survey to gain insights into associate sentiment about various aspects of the associate experience. This feedback is used to assess the effectiveness of our people practices and prioritize enhancements to our programs.
Diversity, Equity and Inclusion. Umpqua Bank embraces the opportunity to foster a culture of diversity, equity, and inclusion in our associates, customers, and communities. With the adoption of a comprehensive diversity, equity, and inclusion strategic plan in 2020, our ongoing key focus areas will be connected to values integration, community engagement, being an employer of choice. We have accelerated the rollout of intensive internal training, which began in 2020 and will continue in 2021. Additionally, we have continued to expand programs that support an inclusive work environment, such as our Associate Resource Groups, which are open to all associates, and focus on gender, race and ethnicity, sexual orientation, ability or veteran status.
Recently, we launched a new Inclusion Council that will, in partnership with our Diversity Council, identify opportunities for further internal operational improvements. They will also identify ways to deepen our commitment to drive economic opportunity in communities of color through our community engagement programs. One illustration of our commitment at the most senior level is in the diverse make-up of our Board of Directors—chaired by a woman and including four women and three people of color.

The operations of the Company and our subsidiaries are affected by state and federal legislative and regulatory changes and by policies of various regulatory authorities, including, domestic monetary policies of the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System, United States fiscal policy, and capital adequacy and liquidity constraints imposed by federal and state regulatory agencies.
Supervision and Regulation
General. We are extensively regulated under federal and state law. These laws and regulations are generally intended to protect depositors and customers, not shareholders. To the extent that the following information describes statutory or regulatory provisions, it is qualified in its entirety by reference to the particular statute or regulation. Any change in applicable laws or regulations may have a material effect on our business and prospects. We cannot accurately predict the nature or the extent of the effects on our business and earnings that fiscal or monetary policies, or new federal or state legislation or regulation may have in the future. Umpqua is subject to the disclosure and other requirements of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, and rules promulgated thereunder and administered by the Securities and Exchange Commission. As a listed company on NASDAQ, Umpqua is subject to NASDAQ rules for listed companies.
The Federal Reserve and the FDIC have adopted non-capital safety and soundness standards for financial institutions. These standards cover internal controls, information and internal audit systems, loan documentation, credit underwriting, interest rate exposure, asset growth, compensation, fees and benefits, and standards for asset quality, earnings and stock valuation. An institution that fails to meet these standards must develop a plan acceptable to the agency, specifying the steps that it will take to meet the standards. Failure to submit or implement such a plan may subject the institution to regulatory sanctions.
Holding Company Regulation. We are a bank holding company registered as a financial holding company under the GLB Act, and are subject to the supervision of, and regulation by the Federal Reserve. As a bank holding company, we are examined by and file reports with the Federal Reserve. The Federal Reserve expects a bank holding company to serve as a source of financial and managerial strength to its subsidiary bank and, under appropriate circumstances, to commit resources to support the subsidiary bank.
Financial holding companies are bank holding companies that satisfy certain criteria and are permitted to engage in activities that traditional bank holding companies are not. The qualifications and permitted activities of financial holdings companies are described below under "Regulatory Structure of the Financial Services Industry."
Federal and State Bank Regulation. Umpqua Bank, as a state chartered bank with deposits insured by the FDIC, is primarily subject to the supervision and regulation of the Oregon Department of Consumer and Business Services Division of Financial Regulation, the Washington Department of Financial Institutions, the California Department of Business Oversight, the Idaho Department of Finance Banking Section, the Nevada Division of Financial Institutions, the FDIC and the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. Our primary state regulator, DCBS, regularly examines the Bank or participates in joint examinations with the FDIC; these agencies may prohibit the Bank from engaging in what they believe constitute unsafe or unsound banking practices.
Community Reinvestment Act and Fair Lending Laws. Umpqua Bank has a responsibility under the CRA, as implemented by FDIC regulations, to help meet the credit needs of its communities, including low and moderate-income neighborhoods. The CRA does not establish specific lending requirements or programs for financial institutions nor does it limit an institution's discretion to develop the types of products and services that it believes are best suited to its particular community, consistent with the CRA. The FDIC assesses Umpqua Bank's record of compliance with the CRA through periodic examinations.
In addition, the Equal Credit Opportunity Act and the Fair Housing Act prohibit discrimination in lending practices on the basis of characteristics specified in those statutes. Umpqua Bank's failure to comply with the Equal Credit Opportunity Act and the Fair Housing Act could result in enforcement actions against it by the FDIC, as well as other federal regulatory agencies, including the CFPB and the Department of Justice.
CRA performance is considered in evaluating mergers, acquisitions and applications to open a branch or new facility. Umpqua Bank's failure to comply with the provisions of the CRA could, at a minimum, result in regulatory restrictions on its activities and the activities of Umpqua potentially resulting in the suspension of any growth of the Bank through acquisitions or opening de novo branches until the rating is improved.
In 2018, the U.S. Department of Treasury issued a memorandum to the federal banking regulators with recommended changes to the CRA's implementing regulations to reduce their complexity and associated burden on banks. In 2019, the FDIC and the OCC jointly proposed rules that would significantly change existing CRA regulations. The proposed rules are intended to increase bank activity in low- and moderate-income communities where there is significant need for credit, more responsible lending, greater access to banking services, and improvements to critical infrastructure. The proposals change four key areas: (i) clarifying what activities qualify for CRA credit; (ii) updating where activities count for CRA credit; (iii) providing a more transparent and objective method for measuring CRA performance; and (iv) revising CRA-related data collection, record keeping, and reporting. However, the Federal Reserve Board did not join in that proposed rulemaking. In May 2020, the OCC issued its final CRA rule, effective October 1, 2020. The FDIC has not finalized the revisions to its CRA rule. In September 2020, the Federal Reserve issued its own CRA proposal to modernize the regulations that implement the CRA by strengthening, clarifying, and tailoring them to reflect the current banking landscape and better meet the core purpose of the CRA. We will continue to evaluate the impact of any changes to the regulations implementing CRA. As of the most recent CRA examination, the Bank's CRA rating was "Satisfactory".
Transactions with Affiliates and Insiders. Banks are subject to restrictions imposed by the Federal Reserve Act on extensions of credit to executive officers, directors, principal shareholders or any related interest of such persons. Extensions of credit must be made on substantially the same terms, including interest rates and collateral, and follow credit underwriting procedures that are not less stringent than, those prevailing at the time for comparable transactions with persons not affiliated with the bank, and must not involve more than the normal risk of repayment or present other unfavorable features. Banks are also subject to lending limits and restrictions on overdrafts to such persons. A violation of these restrictions may result in the assessment of civil monetary penalties on the affected bank or any officer, director, employee, agent or other person participating in the conduct of the affairs of that bank, the imposition of a cease and desist order, and other regulatory sanctions.
The Federal Reserve Act and related Regulation W limit the amount of certain loan and investment transactions between the Bank and its affiliates, require certain levels of collateral for such loans, and limit the amount of advances to third parties that may be collateralized by the securities of Umpqua or its subsidiaries. Regulation W requires that certain transactions between the Bank and its affiliates be on terms substantially the same, or at least as favorable to the Bank, as those prevailing at the time for comparable transactions with or involving nonaffiliated companies or, in the absence of comparable transactions, on terms and under circumstances, including credit standards, that in good faith would be offered to or would apply to nonaffiliated companies. Umpqua and its subsidiaries have adopted an Affiliate Transactions Policy and have entered into various affiliate agreements designed to comply with Regulation W.
Privacy. Federal and state laws designed to protect individual privacy limit the ability of banks and other financial institutions to disclose non-public information about consumers to affiliated companies and non-affiliated third parties, and impose other obligations on personal information collected by us. These rules require disclosure of privacy policies to clients and, in some circumstances, allow consumers to prevent disclosure of certain personal information to affiliates or non-affiliated third parties by means of opt-out or opt-in authorizations. Pursuant to the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act and certain state laws, companies are required to notify clients of security breaches resulting in unauthorized access to their personal information. In connection with the regulations governing the privacy of consumer financial information, the federal banking agencies have also adopted guidelines for establishing information security standards and programs to protect such information.
States are also increasingly proposing or enacting legislation that relates to data privacy and data protection such as the California Consumer Privacy Act which went into effect on January 1, 2020. We expect this trend of state-level activity in these areas to continue and are continually monitoring developments in the states in which our customers are located.
Federal Deposit Insurance. Substantially all deposits with Umpqua Bank are insured up to applicable limits by the Deposit Insurance Fund of the FDIC and are subject to deposit insurance assessments to maintain the DIF. The standard maximum federal deposit insurance amount is $250,000 per qualified account.
The FDIC may terminate the deposit insurance of any insured depository institution if it determines that the institution has engaged in or is engaging in unsafe and unsound banking practices, is in an unsafe or unsound condition or has violated any applicable law, regulation or order or any condition imposed in writing by, or pursuant to, any written agreement with the FDIC. The termination of deposit insurance for the Bank would have a material adverse effect on our financial condition and results of operations.
Dividends. Under the Oregon Bank Act and the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation Improvement Act of 1991, the Bank is subject to restrictions on the payment of cash dividends to its parent company and may be required to receive prior approval in certain circumstances. In addition, state and federal regulatory authorities are authorized to prohibit banks and holding companies from paying dividends that would constitute an unsafe or unsound banking practice. The Federal Reserve has issued a policy statement on the payment of cash dividends by bank holding companies, which expresses the Federal Reserve's view that a bank holding company should pay cash dividends only to the extent that its net income for the past year is sufficient to cover both the cash dividends and a rate of earnings retention that is consistent with the holding company's capital needs, asset quality, and overall financial condition.
As a result of the goodwill impairment taken in the first quarter of 2020, the Company has an accumulated deficit and is required to notify the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System prior to declaring and paying a cash dividend to our shareholders and may not pay a dividend if the FRB objects. Additionally, the Company is required to seek FDIC and Oregon Division of Financial Regulation approval for quarterly dividends from Umpqua Bank to the Company.
Capital Adequacy. The federal and state bank regulatory agencies use capital adequacy guidelines in their examination and regulation of holding companies and banks. If capital falls below the minimum levels established by these guidelines, a holding company or a bank may be denied approval to acquire or establish additional banks or non-bank businesses or to open new facilities.
The FDIC and Federal Reserve have adopted risk-based capital guidelines for holding companies and banks. The risk-based capital guidelines are designed to make regulatory capital requirements more sensitive to differences in risk profile among holding companies and banks, to account for off-balance sheet exposure and to minimize disincentives for holding liquid assets. Assets and off-balance sheet items are assigned to broad risk categories, each with appropriate weightings. The resulting capital ratios represent capital as a percentage of total risk-weighted assets and off-balance sheet items. The capital adequacy guidelines limit the degree to which a holding company or bank may leverage its equity capital.
The Company and the Bank are each required to comply with applicable capital adequacy standards established by the Federal Reserve, which are based on the Basel Committee on Banking Supervision to the Basel capital framework.
The Basel III final rules, among other things, include the common equity Tier 1 capital to risk-weighted assets ratio, including a capital conservation buffer of 2.5%. The required CET1 ratio is a minimum of 7%. The minimum ratio of Tier 1 capital to risk-weighted assets is 8.5%, and the minimum leverage ratio is 5.0%.
Under Basel III, the effects of certain accumulated other comprehensive items are not excluded; however, the Company and the Bank, have made a one-time permanent election to continue to exclude these items in order to avoid significant variations in the level of capital depending upon the impact of interest rate fluctuations on the fair value of the Company's securities portfolio.
Failure to meet minimum capital requirements could subject a bank to a variety of enforcement actions. An institution's failure to exceed the capital conservation buffer with common equity Tier 1 capital would result in limitations on an institution's ability to make capital distributions and discretionary bonus payments. FDICIA requires federal banking regulators to take "prompt corrective action" with respect to a capital-deficient institution, including requiring a capital restoration plan and restricting certain growth activities of the institution. Umpqua could be required to guarantee any such capital restoration plan required of the Bank if the Bank became undercapitalized. Pursuant to FDICIA, regulations were adopted defining five capital levels: well capitalized, adequately capitalized, undercapitalized, severely undercapitalized and critically undercapitalized. Under the regulations, the Bank is considered "well capitalized" as of December 31, 2020.
In July 2019, the OCC, the FRB, and the FDIC issued a final rule intended to simplify aspects of the regulatory capital rules for banking organizations, such as Umpqua, that are not advanced approaches banking organizations. The final rule includes amendments to the capital treatment of mortgage servicing assets, certain deferred tax assets, investments in the capital instruments of unconsolidated financial institutions, and minority interests. These amendments were effective for Umpqua as of January 1, 2020. Pursuant to a final rule issued in July 2019, the transition provisions that were previously frozen have been replaced with new permanent rules effective in April 2020. Additionally, on March 27, 2020, federal bank regulatory agencies announced an interim final rule that allows banks that have implemented the current expected credit losses standard the option to delay for two years the estimated impact of CECL on regulatory capital, followed by a three-year transition period. For purposes of calculating regulatory capital, the Company has elected to defer recognition of the estimated impact of CECL on regulatory capital for two years in accordance with the interim final rule adopted by federal bank regulatory agencies on March 27, 2020. Pursuant to the interim final rule, the estimated impact of CECL on regulatory capital will be phased in over a three-year period beginning in 2022.
Federal and State Regulation of Broker-Dealers. Umpqua Investments is regulated by the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority, as well as the SEC, and has customer funds, excluding decline in value of securities, insured through the Securities Investor Protection Corporation as well as third party insurers. FINRA and the SEC perform regular examinations of Umpqua Investments that include reviews of policies, procedures, recordkeeping, trade practices, and customer protection as well as other inquiries.
Effects of Government Monetary Policy. Our earnings and growth are affected not only by general economic conditions, but also by the fiscal and monetary policies of the federal government, particularly the Federal Reserve. The Federal Reserve implements national monetary policy for such purposes as curbing inflation and combating recession, through its open market operations in U.S. Government securities, control of the discount rate applicable to borrowings from the Federal Reserve, and establishment of reserve requirements against certain deposits. These activities influence growth of bank loans, investments and deposits, and also affect interest rates charged on loans or paid on deposits. The nature and impact of future changes in monetary policies and their impact on us cannot be predicted with certainty.
In March 2020, in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, its effect on economic activity in the near term and the risk it poses to the economic outlook, the Federal Open Market Committee lowered the target range for the federal funds rate 150 basis points to 0.00% to 0.25%. At its September 2020 meeting the FOMC noted it expects to maintain an accommodating stance of monetary policy until the outcomes of employment and inflation targets over the longer run is achieved.
Regulation of the Financial Services Industry. Federal laws and regulations governing banking and financial services underwent significant changes in recent years and we believe will continue to undergo significant changes in the future. From time to time, legislation is introduced in the United States Congress that contains proposals for altering the structure, regulation, and competitive relationships of the nation's financial institutions. If enacted into law, these proposals could increase or decrease the cost of doing business, limit or expand permissible activities, or affect the competitive balance among banks, savings associations, and other financial institutions. Whether or in what form any such legislation may be adopted or the extent to which our business might be affected thereby cannot be predicted.
The GLB Act, enacted in November 1999, repealed sections of the Banking Act of 1933, commonly referred to as the Glass-Steagall Act, that prohibited banks from engaging in securities activities, and prohibited securities firms from engaging in banking. The GLB Act created a new form of holding company, known as a financial holding company, that is permitted to acquire subsidiaries that are engaged in banking, securities underwriting and dealing, and insurance underwriting.
To qualify as a financial holding company, the bank holding company must be deemed to be well-capitalized and well-managed, as those terms are used by the Federal Reserve. In addition, each subsidiary bank of a bank holding company must also be well-capitalized and well-managed and be rated at least "satisfactory" under the CRA. A bank holding company that does not qualify, or has not chosen, to become a financial holding company must limit its activities to traditional banking activities and those non-banking activities the Federal Reserve has deemed to be permissible because they are closely related to the business of banking.
The Riegle-Neal Interstate Banking and Branching Efficiency Act of 1994 permits interstate banking and branching, which allows banks to expand nationwide through acquisition, consolidation or merger. Under this law, an adequately capitalized bank holding company may acquire banks in any state or merge banks across state lines if permitted by state law. Further, banks may establish and operate branches in any state subject to the restrictions of applicable state law. Under Oregon law, an out-of-state bank or bank holding company may merge with or acquire an Oregon state chartered bank or bank holding company upon receipt of approval from the Director of the DCBS. The Bank has the ability to open additional de novo branches in the states of Oregon, California, Washington, Idaho, and Nevada.
The Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act eliminated interstate branching restrictions that were implemented as part of the Riegle-Neal Act, and removed many restrictions on de novo interstate branching by national and state-chartered banks. The FDIC and the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency have authority to approve applications by insured state non-member banks and national banks, respectively, to establish de novo branches in states other than the bank's home state if the law of the state in which the branch is located, or is to be located, would permit establishment of the branch, if the bank were a state bank chartered by such State.
Anti-Terrorism Legislation. The Uniting and Strengthening America by Providing Appropriate Tools Required to Intercept and Obstruct Terrorism Act prohibits banks from providing correspondent accounts directly to foreign shell banks, as well as imposes due diligence requirements on banks opening and holding accounts for foreign financial institutions or wealthy foreign individuals. Banks are also required to have effective compliance processes in place relating to anti-money laundering compliance, as well as compliance with the Bank Secrecy Act.
The Dodd-Frank Act. The Dodd-Frank Act was a sweeping overhaul of financial industry regulation. The Dodd-Frank Act created the Financial Stability Oversight Council and permanently raised the FDIC deposit insurance coverage to $250,000. In addition, the Dodd-Frank Act added additional requirements on Banks and their regulators, including additional interchange fee limits, mortgage limit requirements, and say-on-pay executive compensation requirements.
Stress Testing and Capital Planning. Initially, Umpqua was subject to annual Dodd-Frank Act capital stress testing requirements of the Federal Reserve and the FDIC. As part of the DFAST process, Umpqua was required to submit the results of the company-run stress tests to the FDIC, and Umpqua disclosed certain results from stress testing exercises. However, the Economic Growth, Regulatory Relief, and Consumer Protection Act, modified provisions of the Dodd-Frank Act that changed Umpqua's requirements. Umpqua internally monitors and stress tests its capital consistent with the safety and soundness expectations of its regulators.
CFPB Regulation and Supervision. The CFPB has authority to examine Umpqua and Umpqua Bank for compliance with a broad range of federal consumer financial laws and regulations, including the laws and regulations that relate to credit card, deposit, mortgage and other consumer financial products and services the Bank offers. The CFPB is authorized to issue regulations and take enforcement actions to prevent and remedy acts and practices relating to consumer financial products and services that it deems to be unfair, deceptive or abusive. The agency also has authority to impose new disclosure requirements for any consumer financial product or service. In addition, the CFPB's regulations require lenders to conduct a reasonable and good faith determination at or before consummation of a residential mortgage loan that the borrower will have a reasonable ability to repay the loan.
Joint Agency Guidance on Incentive Compensation. Federal banking regulators joint agency guidance applies to executive and non-executive incentive compensation plans administered by banks. The guidance says that incentive compensation programs must:
•Provide employees incentives that appropriately balance risk and reward;
•Be compatible with effective controls and risk- management; and
•Be supported by strong corporate governance, including active and effective oversight by the board.
The Federal Reserve reviews, as part of the regular, risk-focused examination process, the incentive compensation arrangements of the Company and other banking organizations. The findings of the supervisory initiatives are included in reports of examination and any deficiencies will be incorporated into the Company's supervisory ratings, which can affect the Company's ability to make acquisitions and take other actions.
Regulatory Developments Related to the COVID-19 Pandemic
The U.S. Congress, the FRB and U.S. state and federal regulatory agencies have taken actions to mitigate disruptions to economic activity and financial stability resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic. The descriptions below summarize certain significant government actions taken in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The CARES Act. The Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security Act was signed into law on March 27, 2020 and has subsequently been amended. Among other provisions, the CARES Act includes relief from certain U.S. GAAP requirements to allow COVID-19-related loan modifications to not be categorized as TDR loans as well as a range of incentives to encourage deferment, forbearance or modification of consumer credit and mortgage contracts. In addition to the CARES Act, bank regulatory agencies issued interagency guidance indicating that a lender could conclude that the modifications under section 4013 of the CARES Act or the interagency guidance are not a TDR if certain criteria are met. The guidance also provides that loans generally will not be adversely classified if the short-term modification is related to COVID-19 relief programs. The Company has followed the guidance under the CARES Act, interagency guidance and state programs related to these loan modifications
The CARES Act also focused on economic stabilization and relief to severely distressed businesses with the Paycheck Protection Program, administered by the SBA, which provided loans for eligible small businesses for payroll obligations, emergency grants to cover immediate operating costs, and a mechanism for loan forgiveness.
The CARES Act contains additional protections for homeowners and renters of properties with federally-backed mortgages, including a 60-day moratorium on the initiation of foreclosure proceedings and a 120-day moratorium on initiating eviction proceedings. Borrowers of federally-backed mortgages have the right under the CARES Act to request up to 360 days of forbearance on their mortgage payments if they experience financial hardship directly or indirectly due to COVID-19 pandemic. The Federal Housing Administration, Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac have independently extended their moratorium on foreclosures and evictions for single-family federally backed mortgages as well.
Also pursuant to the CARES Act, the U.S. Treasury has the authority to provide loans, guarantees and other investments in support of eligible businesses, states and municipalities impacted by the economic effects of COVID-19.
In late December 2020, the Economic Aid to Hard-Hit Small Businesses, Nonprofits, and Venues Act rebooted the PPP with many of the same parameters as the first program but with some important differences. Those changes include the ability for businesses that previously received a PPP loan to be eligible for a second-draw PPP loan, provided they meet the certain criteria. The Act also opened up first-draw PPP loans to additional companies and set aside funds for new and smaller borrowers, low and moderate income borrowers and for community and small lenders. It also allowed additional costs to be eligible for loan forgiveness and PPP borrowers will have to spend no less than 60% of the funds on payroll over a covered period.
FRB Actions. The FRB has taken a range of actions to support the flow of credit to households and businesses including reducing the target fed funds rate and maintaining an accommodating stance on monetary policy. The FRB also announced that it would increase its holdings of U.S. Treasury securities and agency mortgage-backed securities and begin purchasing agency commercial mortgage-backed securities. The FRB has also encouraged depository institutions to borrow from the discount window and has lowered the primary credit rate for such borrowings by 150 basis points while extending the term of such loans up to 90 days. Reserve requirements have been reduced to zero as of March 26, 2020.
In addition, the FRB has established, a range of facilities and programs to support the U.S. economy and U.S. marketplace participants in response to economic disruptions associated with COVID-19. Through these facilities and programs, the FRB has taken steps to directly or indirectly purchase assets from, or make loans to, U.S. companies, financial institutions, municipalities and other market participants. The FRB established the Payroll Protection Program Liquidity Facility. Under the PPLF, the Bank can obtain financing for PPP loans by pledging them to the FRB. We also have the ability to increase our borrowing capacity at the Federal Home Loan Bank by pledging the PPP loans.
Additional legislative and regulatory action may be proposed and could include requirements that could significantly impact our business practices. The impact of these legislative and regulatory initiatives on us, the economy and the U.S. consumer will depend upon a wide variety of factors some of which are yet to be identified.
ITEM 1A. RISK FACTORS.
In addition to the other information set forth in this report, you should carefully consider the risk factors discussed below. These factors could adversely affect our business, financial condition, liquidity, results of operations and capital position, and the value of, and return on, an investment in the Company. These factors could cause our actual results to differ materially from our historical results or the results contemplated by the forward-looking statements contained in this report. An investment in the Company involves risk, including the possibility that the value of the investment could fall substantially and that dividends on the investment could be reduced or eliminated.
The COVID-19 pandemic has adversely impacted our business and financial results, and the ultimate impact will depend on future developments, which are highly uncertain and cannot be predicted, including the scope and duration of the pandemic and actions taken by governmental authorities in response to the pandemic.
The COVID-19 pandemic has negatively impacted the economy, changed customer behaviors, disrupted supply chains, lowered equity market valuations, created significant volatility and disruption in financial markets, and increased unemployment levels. The pandemic has resulted in temporary closures of many businesses and the institution of social distancing and stay at home/sheltering in place requirements in the states and communities we serve. As a result, the demand for our products and services may be significantly impacted, which could adversely affect our revenue. The pandemic could continue to result in the recognition of credit losses in our loan portfolios and increases in our allowance for credit losses, particularly if businesses remain closed, unemployment levels continue to rise or regional economic conditions worsen. Our business operations may also be disrupted if significant portions of our workforce are unable to work effectively, including because of illness, quarantines, government actions, or other restrictions in connection with the pandemic. In response to the pandemic, we have initiated relief programs designed to support our customers and communities including payment deferral programs, deferral-related and other fee waivers, suspended residential property foreclosure sales, and other expanded assistance for customers. Future governmental actions may require additional types of customer-related responses that could negatively impact our financial results. We could be required to take capital actions in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, including reducing dividends and eliminating stock repurchases. The extent to which the COVID-19 pandemic continues to impact our business, results of operations, and financial condition, as well as our regulatory capital and liquidity ratios, will depend on future developments, which are highly uncertain and cannot be predicted, including the scope and duration of the pandemic; actions taken by governmental authorities and other third parties in response to the pandemic; the effect on our customers, counterparties, employees and third party service providers; and the effect on economies and markets. To the extent that the COVID-19 pandemic continues to adversely affect our business and financial performance, it may also have the effect of heightening many of the other risks.
The majority of our assets are loans, which if not repaid would result in losses to the Bank.
The Bank and its operating subsidiary are subject to credit risk, which is the risk of losing principal or interest due to borrowers' failure to repay loans or leases in accordance with their terms. Underwriting and documentation controls cannot mitigate all credit risk. A downturn in the economy or the real estate market in our market areas or a rapid increase in interest rates could have a negative effect on collateral values and borrowers' ability to repay. To the extent loans are not paid timely by borrowers, the loans are placed on non-accrual status, thereby reducing interest income. Further, under these circumstances, an additional provision for loan and lease losses or unfunded commitments may be required. Risk of borrower default may arise from events or circumstances that are difficult to detect or foresee.
We maintain an allowance for credit losses on loans and leases, which is a reserve established through a provision for credit losses charged to expense, that represents management's best estimate of current expected credit losses over the life of the loan or lease within the existing portfolio of loans and leases. The allowance for credit losses on loans and leases, in the judgment of management, is necessary to reserve for current expected credit losses and risks in the loan and lease portfolio. The level of the allowance for credit losses on loans and leases is an estimate that reflects management's consideration of relevant available information, including historical credit loss experience, current conditions, and reasonable and supportable forecasts. The determination of the appropriate level of the allowance for credit losses on loans and leases inherently involves a high degree of subjectivity and requires us to make significant estimates of current expected credit risks using existing qualitative and quantitative information, all of which may undergo material changes. Changes in economic conditions affecting borrowers, new information regarding existing loans and leases, identification of additional problem loans and leases, and other factors, both within and outside of our control, may require an increase in the allowance for credit losses on loans and leases.
In addition, bank regulatory agencies periodically review our allowance for credit losses on loans and leases and may require an increase in the provision for credit losses or the recognition of additional loan charge offs, based on judgments different than those of management. An increase in the allowance for credit losses on loans and leases would result in a decrease in net income, and possibly risk-based capital, and could have a material adverse effect on our financial condition and results of operations.
We are subject to lending concentration risks.
As of December 31, 2020, approximately 76% of our loan portfolio consisted of commercial and industrial, real estate construction, commercial real estate loans, and lease financing. Commercial loans are generally viewed as having more inherent risk of default than residential mortgage loans or other consumer loans. Also, the commercial loan balance per borrower is typically larger than that for residential mortgage loans and other consumer loans, implying higher potential losses on an individual loan basis. Because our loan portfolio contains a number of commercial loans with balances over $20 million, the deterioration of one or a few of these loans could cause a significant increase in nonaccrual loans, which could have a material adverse effect on our financial condition and results of operations.
Deterioration in the real estate market or other segments of our loan portfolio would lead to additional losses, which could have a material adverse effect on our business, financial condition and results of operations.
As of December 31, 2020, approximately 71% of our total loan portfolio is secured by real estate, the majority of which is commercial real estate located in the five Western states in our footprint. Our success depends in part on economic conditions in the western United States and adverse changes in markets where our real estate collateral is located could adversely affect our business. Increases in delinquency rates or declines in real estate market values would require increased net charge-offs and increases in the allowance for credit losses on loans and leases, which could have a material adverse effect on our business, financial condition and results of operations and prospects.
The new credit loss accounting standard may create volatility in our provision for credit losses and could have a material impact on our financial condition or results of operations.
The Financial Accounting Standard Board's accounting standard, "Financial Instruments-Credit Losses (Topic 326), Measurement of Credit Losses on Financial Instruments," which replaced the long-standing incurred loss model for recognizing credit losses with an expected loss model referred to as the CECL model. Under the CECL model, we are required to present certain financial assets carried at amortized cost, such as loans held for investment and held-to-maturity debt securities, at the net amount expected to be collected. The measurement of expected credit losses is to be based on information about past events, including historical experience, current conditions, and reasonable and supportable forecasts that affect the collectability of the reported amount. This measurement takes place at the time the financial asset is first added to the balance sheet and periodically thereafter. This differs significantly from the incurred loss model, which delayed recognition until it was probable a loss had been incurred. The CECL model may create more volatility in the level of our allowance for credit losses on loans and leases. The new CECL standard became effective for us for fiscal year 2020 and for interim periods in 2020. We recognized a one-time cumulative-effect adjustment to our allowance for credit losses on loans and leases as of January 1, 2020. We expect to incur ongoing costs in maintaining the additional CECL models and methodology along with acquiring forecasts used within the models, and that the methodology will result in increased capital costs. The CECL process involves significant management judgment in determining the overall adequacy of the ACL. Management considers various qualitative factors including changes within the portfolio, changes to Bank policies and processes, as well as external factors, which may result in qualitative overlays to the model results.
MARKET AND INTEREST RATE RISK
Difficult or volatile market conditions or weak economic conditions may adversely affect our business.
Our business and financial performance are vulnerable to weak economic conditions, primarily in the United States and especially in the western United States. A deterioration in economic conditions in our primary market areas could result in the following consequences, any of which could materially and adversely affect our business: increased loan delinquencies; problem assets and foreclosures; significant write-downs of asset values; volatile financial markets; lower demand for our products and services; reduced low cost or noninterest bearing deposits; intangible asset impairment; and collateral for loans made by us, especially real estate, may decline in value, in turn reducing customers' borrowing power, and reducing the value of assets and collateral associated with our existing loans. Additional issues surrounding weakening economic conditions and volatile markets that could adversely impact us include:
•Increased regulation of our industry, and resulting increased costs associated with regulatory compliance and potential limits on our ability to pursue business opportunities.
•Our ability to assess the creditworthiness of our customers may be impaired if the models and approaches we use to select, manage, and underwrite our customers become less predictive of future performance.
•The process we use to estimate current expected credit losses in our loan portfolio requires difficult, subjective, and complex judgments, including forecasts of economic conditions and how these economic predictions might impair the ability of our borrowers to repay their loans, which may no longer be capable of accurate estimation and may, in turn, impact its reliability.
•Downward pressure on our stock price.
A rapid change in interest rates, or maintenance of rates at historically high or low levels for an extended period, could make it difficult to improve or maintain our current interest income spread and could result in reduced earnings.
Our earnings are largely derived from net interest income, which is interest income and fees earned on loans and investments, less interest paid on deposits and other borrowings. Interest rates are highly sensitive to many factors that are beyond the control of our management, including general economic conditions and the policies of various governmental and regulatory authorities. The actions of the Federal Reserve influence the rates of interest that we charge on loans and pay on borrowings and interest-bearing deposits. We cannot predict the nature or timing of future changes in monetary, tax and other policies or the effects that they may have on our activities and financial results.
As interest rates change, net interest income is affected. With fixed rate assets (such as fixed rate loans and most investment securities) and liabilities (such as certificates of deposit), the effect on net interest income depends on the cash flows associated with the maturity of the asset or liability. Asset/liability management policies may not be successfully implemented and from time to time our risk position is not balanced. An unanticipated rapid decrease or increase in interest rates could have an adverse effect on the spreads between the interest rates earned on assets and the rates of interest paid on liabilities, and therefore on the level of net interest income. For instance, any rapid increase in interest rates in the future could result in interest expense increasing faster than interest income because of fixed rate loans and longer-term investments. Historically low rates for an extended period of time result in reduced returns from the investment and loan portfolios. The current low interest rate environment could affect consumer and business behavior in ways that are adverse to us and negatively impact our ability to increase our net interest income. Further, substantially higher interest rates generally reduce loan demand and may result in slower loan growth than previously experienced.
Shorter-term and longer-term interest rates remain below historical averages, as well as the yield curve, which has been relatively flat. A flat yield curve combined with low interest rates generally leads to lower revenue and reduced margins because it tends to limit our ability to increase the spread between asset yields and funding costs. Sustained periods of time with a flat yield curve coupled with low interest rates could have a material adverse effect on our earnings and our net interest margin.
Interest rate volatility and credit risk adjusted rate spreads may impact our financial assets and liabilities measured at fair value.
Our investment portfolio consists of $733.3 million of collateralized mortgage obligations, the nature of these securities is such that changes in market interest rates impact the value of the assets. The widening of the credit risk adjusted rate spreads on potential new issuances of junior subordinated debentures above our contractual spreads and reductions in three-month LIBOR rates have contributed to the cumulative positive fair value adjustment in our junior subordinated debentures carried at fair value. Tightening of these credit risk adjusted rate spreads and interest rate volatility may result in recognizing negative fair value adjustments in the future.
It is possible the Company may accelerate redemption of the existing junior subordinated debentures to support regulatory total capital levels. This could result in adjustments to the fair value of these instruments including the acceleration of losses on junior subordinated debentures carried at fair value.
We rely on the soundness of other financial institutions and government sponsored enterprises.
Financial services institutions and government sponsored enterprises are interrelated as a result of trading, clearing, processing, lending, counterparty, guarantor and other relationships. We have exposure to many different industries and counterparties in financial services, including brokers and dealers, commercial banks, bankers banks, correspondent banks, investment banks, mutual and hedge funds, institutions involved in the mortgage business and others. Transactions with these entities expose us to risk in the event of default of our counterparty, including due to their failure or financial difficulty. Our ability to engage in funding transactions could be adversely affected by the actions and commercial soundness of other financial institutions, including if there is a default by, or rumors about, one or more financial services institutions. Our credit risk could also be impacted when the collateral we hold cannot be realized or is liquidated at prices not sufficient to recover the full amount of the financial instrument exposure due to us.
We may be impacted by the retirement of LIBOR as a reference rate.
In November 2020, the ICE Benchmark Administration, the London Interbank Offered Rate administrator, announced its intention to continue publishing most tenors of U.S. dollar LIBOR until June 30, 2023. The Financial Conduct Authority announced support for this development, signaling an extension from its prior communication that it would no longer require panel banks to submit rates for LIBOR after 2021. The Alternative Reference Rates Committee was convened in the U.S. to explore alternative reference rates and supporting processes. The ARRC is made up of financial and capital market institutions, is convened by the Federal Reserve Board and the Federal Reserve Bank of New York, and includes participation by various regulators. The ARRC identified a potential successor rate to LIBOR in the Secured Overnight Financing Rate and crafted the Paced Transition Plan to facilitate the transition. However, there are conceptual and technical differences between LIBOR and SOFR.
A significant portion of our loans, approximately 45%, and all of the related derivative contracts within the Commercial & Industrial, Commercial Real Estate, and Residential Mortgage portfolios reference LIBOR. We have not yet determined the optimal replacement reference rate(s) that will ultimately replace LIBOR in current contracts maturing after LIBOR cessation. We have introduced SOFR as an option for use in our variable or adjustable rate credit products going forward. We have organized an internal transition program to identify system, operational, and contractual impacts, assess our risks, manage the transition, facilitate communication with our customers, and monitor the program progress. The LIBOR retirement is a significant shift in the industry. A transition away from LIBOR could impact our pricing and interest rate risk models, our loan product structures, our hedging strategies, and communication with our customers.
The market transition away from LIBOR could:
•adversely affect the interest rates paid or received on our floating rate obligations, loans, deposits, derivatives and other financial instruments tied to LIBOR
•adversely affect the value of our financial instruments tied to LIBOR
•result in additional regulatory scrutiny of our preparedness for the transition away from LIBOR and increased compliance and operational costs related to the transition;
•result in disputes, litigation or other actions with counterparties regarding the interpretation and enforceability of fallback or replacement index language in LIBOR-based instruments and securities;
•cause customer confusion and negatively impact our relationships with borrowers; and
•require the transition to or development of appropriate systems and analytics to effectively transition our risk management processes from LIBOR-based products to those based on an alternative benchmark.
The value of the securities in our investment securities portfolio may be negatively affected by disruptions in securities markets.
The market for some of the investment securities held in our portfolio has become volatile over the past three years. Volatile market conditions or deteriorating financial performance of the issuer or obligor may detrimentally affect the value of these securities. There can be no assurance that potential declines in market value associated with these disruptions will not result in other-than-temporary or permanent impairments of these assets, which would lead to accounting charges that could have a material adverse effect on our net income and capital levels.
Deposits are a critical source of funds for our continued growth and profitability.
Our business strategy calls for continued growth. Our ability to continue to grow depends primarily on our ability to successfully attract deposits to fund loan growth. Core deposits are a low cost and generally stable source of funding and a significant source of funds for our lending activities. Our inability to retain or attract such funds could adversely affect our liquidity. If we are forced to seek other sources of funds, such as additional brokered deposits or borrowings from the FHLB, the interest expense associated with these other funding sources may be higher than the rates we are currently paying on our deposits, which would adversely impact our net income, and such sources of funding may be more volatile and unavailable to us.
Conditions in the financial markets may limit our access to additional funding to meet our liquidity needs.
Liquidity is essential to our business. An inability to raise funds through deposits, borrowings, the sale or pledging as collateral of loans and other assets due to market conditions could have a substantial negative effect on our liquidity. Our access to funding sources in amounts adequate to finance our activities could be impaired by factors that affect us specifically or the financial services industry in general. An adverse regulatory action against us could detrimentally impact our access to liquidity sources. Our ability to borrow could also be impaired by factors that are nonspecific to us, such as severe disruption of the financial markets or negative news and expectations about the prospects for the financial services industry as a whole as evidenced by turmoil in the domestic and worldwide credit markets.
Our wholesale funding sources may prove insufficient to support our future growth or an unexpected reduction in deposits.
We must maintain sufficient funds to respond to the needs of depositors and borrowers. As a part of our liquidity management, we use a number of funding sources in addition to core deposit growth and repayments and maturities of loans and investments. If we grow more rapidly than any increase in our deposit balances, we are likely to become more dependent on these sources, which include brokered deposits, Federal Home Loan Bank advances, proceeds from the sale of loans and liquidity resources at the holding company. Our financial flexibility will be severely constrained if we are unable to maintain our access to funding or if adequate financing is not available to accommodate future growth at acceptable interest rates. If we are required to rely more heavily on more expensive funding sources to support future growth, our revenues may not increase proportionately to cover our costs, and our profitability would be adversely affected.
MORTGAGE BANKING RISK
Changes in interest rates could reduce the value of mortgage servicing rights.
We acquire MSR when we keep servicing rights after we sell originated residential mortgage loans. We sell the majority of our originated residential mortgage loans with servicing retained. We measure MSR at fair value. Fair value is the present value of estimated future net servicing income, calculated based on a number of variables, including assumptions about the likelihood of prepayment by borrowers. Changes in interest rates can affect prepayment assumptions and consequently MSR fair value. When interest rates fall, borrowers are usually more likely to prepay their mortgage loans by refinancing them at a lower rate. As the likelihood of prepayment increases, MSR fair value can decrease, which reduces earnings in the period in which the decrease occurs.
A low interest rate environment increases our exposure to prepayment risk in our mortgage portfolio and the mortgage-backed securities in our investment portfolio. Increased prepayments, refinancing or other factors that impact loan balances could reduce expected revenue associated with mortgage assets and could also lead to a reduction in the value of our mortgage servicing rights, which could have a negative impact on our financial results.
Our mortgage banking revenue can fluctuate significantly.
We earn revenue from fees received for originating, selling and servicing mortgage loans. Generally, if interest rates rise, the demand for mortgage loans tends to fall, reducing the revenue we receive from originations and sales of mortgage loans. At the same time, mortgage banking revenue can increase through increases in fair value of MSR. When interest rates decline, originations tend to increase and the value of MSR tends to decline, also with some offsetting revenue effect. The negative effect on revenue from a decrease in the fair value of residential MSR is immediate, but any offsetting revenue benefit from more originations and the MSR relating to new loans accrues over time. It is also possible that even if interest rates were to fall, mortgage originations may also fall or any increase in mortgage originations may not be enough to offset the decrease in the MSR value caused by the lower rates.
We depend upon programs administered by Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac and Ginnie Mae.
Our ability to generate revenues in our home lending group depends on programs administered by government-sponsored entities that play an important role in the residential mortgage industry. During 2020, 76% of mortgage loans were originated for sale to, or through programs sponsored by Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac or Ginnie Mae. We service loans on behalf of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, as well as loans that have been securitized pursuant to securitization programs sponsored by Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac and Ginnie Mae. A majority of our mortgage servicing rights and loans serviced through subservicing agreements relate to these servicing activities. These entities establish the base service fee to compensate us for servicing loans as well as the assessment of fines and penalties that may be imposed upon us for failing to meet servicing standards. Our status as a Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac and Ginnie Mae approved seller and servicer is subject to compliance with guidelines and failure to meet such guidelines could result in the unilateral termination of our status as an approved seller or servicer. Changes in the existing government-sponsored mortgage programs or servicing eligibility standards through legislation or otherwise, or our failure to maintain a relationship with each of Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac and Ginnie Mae, could materially and adversely affect our business, financial position, results of operations and cash flows through negative impact on the pricing of mortgage related assets in the secondary market, higher mortgage rates to borrowers, or lower mortgage origination volumes and margins.
LEGAL, REGULATORY AND COMPLIANCE RISK
We are subject to extensive government regulation and supervision.
Umpqua Holdings Corporation and its subsidiaries, primarily Umpqua Bank, are subject to extensive federal and state regulation and supervision including by the FDIC, Oregon Division of Financial Regulation, Federal Reserve Board, CFPB, the SEC and FINRA, the primary focus of which is to protect customers, depositors, the deposit insurance fund and the safety and soundness of the banking system as a whole, and not shareholders. The quantity and scope of applicable federal and state regulations may place banks and brokerage firms at a competitive disadvantage compared to less regulated competitors such as financial technology companies, finance companies, credit unions, mortgage banking companies and leasing companies. These laws and regulations apply to almost every aspect of our business, and affect our lending practices and procedures, capital structure, investment activities, deposit gathering activities, our services and products, risk management practices, dividend policy and growth, including through acquisitions.
Legislation and regulation with respect to our industry has increased in recent years, and we expect that supervision and regulation will continue to expand in scope and complexity. Congress and federal regulatory agencies continually review banking laws, regulations and policies for possible changes. Changes to statutes, regulations or regulatory policies, including changes in interpretation or implementation of statutes, regulations or policies, could affect us in substantial and unpredictable ways, and could subject us to additional costs, restrict our growth, limit the services and products we may offer or limit the pricing of banking services and products. In addition, establishing systems and processes to achieve compliance with laws and regulation increases our costs and could limit our ability to pursue business opportunities.
If we receive less than satisfactory results on regulatory examinations, we could be subject to damage to our reputation, significant fines and penalties, requirements to increase compliance and risk management activities and related costs and restriction on acquisitions, new locations, new lines of business, or continued growth. Future changes in federal and state banking and brokerage regulations could adversely affect our operating results and ability to continue to compete effectively. For example, the Dodd-Frank Act and related regulations subject us to additional restrictions, oversight and reporting obligations, which have significantly increased costs. And over the last several years, state and federal regulators have focused on enhanced risk management practices, compliance with the Bank Secrecy Act and anti-money laundering laws, data integrity and security, use of service providers, and fair lending and other consumer protection issues, which has increased our need to build additional processes and infrastructure. Government agencies charged with adopting and interpreting laws, rules and regulations, may do so in an unforeseen manner, including in ways that potentially expand the reach of the laws, rules or regulations more than initially contemplated or currently anticipated. We cannot predict the substance or impact of pending or future legislation or regulation, or the application thereof. Compliance with such current and potential regulation and scrutiny could significantly increase our costs, impede the efficiency of our internal business processes, require us to increase our regulatory capital and limit our ability to pursue business opportunities in an efficient manner. Our success depends on our ability to maintain compliance with both existing and new laws and regulations.
We are required to comply with stringent capital requirements.
As set forth in Item 1 "Supervision and Regulation" of this report, we are required to maintain a common equity Tier 1 capital ratio of 4.5%, a Tier 1 capital ratio of 6%, a total capital ratio of 8%, and a leverage ratio of 4%. In addition, we must maintain an additional capital conservation buffer of 2.5% of total risk weighted assets or be subject to limitations on dividends and other capital distributions, as well as limiting discretionary bonus payments to executive officers. The new rules may require us to raise more common capital or other capital that qualifies as Tier 1 capital. Maintaining higher levels of capital may reduce our profitability and otherwise adversely affect our business, financial condition, or results of operations. The application of more stringent capital requirements could, among other things, result in lower returns on invested capital and result in regulatory actions if we were to be unable to comply with such requirements.
We may be required to raise additional capital in the future, but that capital may not be available when it is needed, or it may only be available on unacceptable terms, which could adversely affect our financial condition and results of operations.
We are required by federal and state regulatory authorities to maintain adequate levels of capital to support our operations. Our ability to raise additional capital, if needed, will depend on conditions in the capital markets at that time, which are outside our control, and on our financial performance. Accordingly, we may not be able to raise additional capital, if needed, on terms acceptable to us. If we cannot raise additional capital when needed, our ability to further expand our operations and pursue our growth strategy could be materially impaired. We and the Bank are currently well capitalized under applicable regulatory guidelines. However, our business could be negatively affected if we or the Bank failed to remain well capitalized. For example, because Umpqua Bank is well capitalized, and we otherwise qualify as a financial holding company, we are permitted to engage in a broader range of activities than are permitted to a bank holding company. Loss of financial holding company status could require that we cease these broader activities. The banking regulators are authorized (and sometimes required) to impose a wide range of requirements, conditions, and restrictions on banks, thrifts, and bank holding companies that fail to maintain adequate capital levels.
We have risk related to legal proceedings.
We are involved in judicial, regulatory, and arbitration proceedings concerning matters arising from our business activities and fiduciary responsibilities. We establish reserves for legal claims when payments associated with the claims become probable and the costs can be reasonably estimated. We may incur costs for a legal matter even if we have not established a reserve, and the actual costs of resolving a legal matter may substantially exceed any established reserves for the matter. Our insurance may not cover all claims that may be asserted against us. Any claim asserted against us, regardless of merit or eventual outcome, could harm our reputation. The ultimate resolution of a pending or future legal proceeding, depending on the remedy sought and granted, could materially adversely affect our results of operations and financial condition.
As a bank holding company that conducts substantially all of our operations through the Bank, our ability to pay dividends, repurchase our shares or to repay our indebtedness depends upon liquid assets held by the holding company and the results of operations of our subsidiaries.
The Company is a separate and distinct legal entity from our subsidiaries and it receives substantially all of its revenue from dividends paid from the Bank. There are legal limitations on the extent to which the Bank may extend credit, pay dividends or otherwise supply funds to, or engage in transactions with, us. Our inability to receive dividends from the Bank could adversely affect our business, financial condition, results of operations and prospects.
Our net income depends primarily upon the Bank's net interest income, which is the income that remains after deducting from total income generated by earning assets the expense attributable to the acquisition of the funds required to support earning assets (primarily interest paid on deposits). The amount of interest income is dependent on many factors including the volume of earning assets, the general level of interest rates, the dynamics of changes in interest rates and the levels of nonperforming loans. All of those factors affect the Bank's ability to pay dividends to the Company.
Various statutory provisions restrict the amount of dividends the Bank can pay to us without regulatory approval. The Bank may not pay cash dividends if that payment could reduce the amount of its capital below that necessary to meet the "adequately capitalized" level in accordance with regulatory capital requirements. It is also possible that, depending upon the financial condition of the Bank and other factors, regulatory authorities could conclude that payment of dividends or other payments, including payments to us, is an unsafe or unsound practice and impose restrictions or prohibit such payments.
Under Oregon law, the Bank may not pay dividends in excess of unreserved retained earnings, deducting there from, to the extent not already charged against earnings or reflected in a reserve, the following: (1) all bad debts, which are debts on which interest is past due and unpaid for at least six months, unless the debt is fully secured and in the process of collection; (2) all other assets charged-off as required by Oregon bank regulators or a state or federal examiner; and (3) all accrued expenses, interest and taxes of the institution. The Federal Reserve has issued a policy statement on the payment of cash dividends by bank holding companies, which expresses the Federal Reserve's view that a bank holding company should pay cash dividends only to the extent that its net income for the past year is sufficient to cover both the cash dividends and a rate of earnings retention that is consistent with the holding company's capital needs, asset quality and overall financial condition.
We are currently required to seek prior regulatory approval for dividends from the Bank to Umpqua and from Umpqua to shareholders. Our regulators have broad discretion whether to approve (or to not object to) dividends and when they will respond to our requests.
We face significant cyber, data and information security risk.
Cyber attacks and other data security risks and breaches include computer viruses, malicious or destructive code, denial of service or information attacks, hacking, ransomware, social engineering attacks targeting our associates and customers, improper access by associates or vendors, malware intrusion and data corruption attempts, and identity theft that could result in the disclosure or destruction of confidential or proprietary information.
Cyberattack techniques can be very sophisticated and difficult to promptly detect, change regularly, and can originate from a wide variety of sources including third parties who are or may be involved in organized crime or linked to terrorist organizations or hostile foreign governments. Cyber security risk management programs are expensive to maintain and as cyber threats continue to grow and evolve we may be required to expend significant additional resources to continue to modify or enhance protective measures or to investigate and remediate information security vulnerabilities or incidents. Although we have programs in place related to business continuity, disaster recovery and information and cyber security to maintain the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of our systems, business applications and customer information, we may not timely detect disruptions and disruptions may still give rise to interruptions in service to customers and loss or liability to us, including loss of customer data.
Cyber risks increase as we continue to develop and grow our mobile and other internet-based product offerings and expand our internal usage of web-based products and applications.
Hacking of personal information and identity theft risks, in particular, could cause serious reputational harm. A successful penetration or circumvention of system security could cause serious negative consequences that could adversely impact its results of operations, liquidity and financial condition, including:
•loss of customers and business opportunities;
•costs associated with maintaining business relationships after an attack or breach;
•significant business disruption to our operations;
•misappropriation, exposure, or destruction of our confidential information, intellectual property, funds, or those of our customers;
•damage to computers or systems;
•violation of applicable privacy and other laws;
•regulatory fines, penalties or intervention;
•loss of confidence in our security measures;
•reimbursement or other compensatory costs; and
•additional compliance costs.
Our cybersecurity insurance may not provide sufficient coverage in the event of a breach or may not be available in the future on acceptable terms.
Cybersecurity and data privacy are areas of heightened legislative and regulatory focus.
As cybersecurity and data privacy risks for banking organizations and the broader financial system have significantly increased in recent years, cybersecurity and data privacy issues have become the subject of increasing legislative and regulatory focus. The federal bank regulatory agencies have proposed enhanced cyber risk management standards, focusing on cyber risk governance and management, management of internal and external dependencies, and incident response, cyber resilience and situational awareness. Several states have proposed or adopted cybersecurity legislation and regulations, which require, among other things, notification to affected individuals when there has been a security breach of their personal data. We receive, maintain and store non-public personal information of our customers and counterparties, including, but not limited to, personally identifiable information and personal financial information. The sharing, use, disclosure and protection of this information are governed by federal and state law. Both personally identifiable information and personal financial information is increasingly subject to legislation and regulation, the intent of which is to protect the privacy of personal information that is collected and handled. For example, in June of 2018, the Governor of California signed into law the California Consumer Privacy Act, which became effective on January 1, 2020, and Californians approved the California Privacy Rights Act in November 2020. We may become subject to new legislation or regulation concerning cybersecurity or the privacy of personally identifiable information and personal financial information or of any other information we may store or maintain. We could be adversely affected if new legislation or regulations are adopted or if existing legislation or regulations are modified such that we are required to alter our systems or require changes to our business practices or privacy policies. If cybersecurity, data privacy, data protection, data transfer or data retention laws are implemented, interpreted or applied in a manner inconsistent with our current practices, we may be subject to fines, litigation or regulatory enforcement actions or ordered to change its business practices, policies or systems in a manner that adversely impacts our operating results.
The failure to understand and adapt to continual technological changes could negatively impact our business.
The financial services industry is undergoing rapid technological change with frequent introductions of new technology-driven products and services by depository institutions and fintech companies. Technological changes are often designed to eliminate banks as intermediaries which could result in the loss of income and customer deposits. New technology-driven products and services are often introduced and adopted, including innovative ways that customers can make payments, access products and manage accounts. We could be required to make substantial capital expenditures to modify or adapt existing products and services or develop new products and services. We may not be successful in introducing new products and services or those new products may not achieve market acceptance. We could lose business, be forced to price products and services on less advantageous terms to retain or attract clients, or be subject to cost increases if we do not effectively develop and implement new technology. Our future success depends, in part, upon our ability to address the needs of our customers by using technology to provide products and services that will satisfy customer demands, as well as to create additional efficiencies in operations. In addition, advances in technology such as digital, mobile, telephone, text, and on-line banking; e-commerce; and self-service automatic teller machines and other equipment, as well as changing customer preferences to access our products and services through digital channels, could decrease the value of our store network and other assets. We may close or sell certain stores and restructure or reduce our remaining stores and work force. These actions could lead to losses on assets, expense to reconfigure stores and loss of customers in certain markets. As a result, our business, financial condition or results of operations may be adversely affected.
We may not be able to successfully implement current or future information technology system enhancements and operational initiatives.
We are investing significant resources in information technology system enhancements and operational initiative to provide functionality, new and enhanced products and services, more efficient internal operations, meet regulatory requirements and streamline our customer experience. We may not be able to successfully implement and integrate such system enhancements and related operational initiatives or do so within budgets and on time. We may incur significant training, licensing, maintenance, consulting and amortization expenses during and after implementation, and may not realize the anticipated long-term benefits.
Our business is highly reliant on technology and our ability to manage the operational risks associated with technology.
Our business involves storing, transmitting, retrieving and processing sensitive consumer and business customer data. We depend on internal systems and outsourced technology to support these data storage and processing operations in a secure manner. Despite our efforts to ensure the security and integrity of our systems, we may not be able to anticipate, detect or recognize threats to our systems or to implement effective preventive measures against all cyber security breaches. A cyber security breach or cyberattack could persist for a long time before being detected and could result in theft of sensitive data or disruption of our transaction processing systems. Our inability to use or access these information systems at critical points in time could unfavorably impact the timeliness and efficiency of our business operations. Our customers and other third parties may use personal mobile devices or computing devices that are outside of its network environment and are subject to their own cybersecurity risks to access our network, products and services.
We depend on our ability to manage the operational risks associated with technology to avoid losses and reputational damage.
Our business involves storing and processing sensitive consumer and business customer data. We depend on internal systems and outsourced technology to support these data storage and processing operations. Despite our efforts to ensure the security and integrity of our systems, we may not be able to anticipate, detect or recognize threats to our systems or to implement effective preventive measures against all cyber security breaches. A cyber security breach or cyberattack could persist for a long time before being detected and could result in theft of sensitive data or disruption of our transaction processing systems. Our inability to use or access these information systems at critical points in time could unfavorably impact the timeliness and efficiency of our business operations.
Our business is highly reliant on third party vendors (and their vendors) and our ability to manage the operational risks associated with outsourcing those services.
We rely on third parties to provide services that are integral to our operations. These vendors provide services that support our operations, including the storage and processing of sensitive consumer and business customer data, as well as our sales efforts. A cyber security breach of a vendor's system may result in theft of our data or disruption of business processes. In most cases, we will remain primarily liable to our customers for losses arising from a breach of a vendor's data security system. We rely on our outsourced service providers to implement and maintain prudent cyber security controls. We have procedures in place to assess a vendor's cyber security controls prior to establishing a contractual relationship and to periodically review assessments of those control systems; however, these procedures are not infallible, and a vendor's system can be breached despite the procedures we employ. We cannot be sure that we will be able to maintain these relationships on favorable terms. In addition, some of our data processing services are provided by companies associated with our competitors. The loss of these vendor relationships could disrupt the services we provide to our customers and cause us to incur significant expense in connection with replacing these services.
Damage to our brand and reputation could significantly harm our business and prospects.
Our brand and reputation are important assets. Our relationship with many of our customers is predicated upon our reputation as a high-quality provider of financial services that adheres to the highest standards of ethics, service quality and regulatory compliance. We believe that our brand has been, and continues to be, well received in our industry, with current and potential customers, investors and employees. Our ability to attract and retain customers, investors and employees depends upon external perceptions of us. Damage to our reputation among existing and potential customers, investors and employees could cause significant harm to our business and prospects and may arise from numerous sources, including litigation or regulatory actions, failing to deliver minimum standards of service and quality, lending practices, inadequate protection of customer information, sales and marketing efforts, compliance failures, unethical behavior and the misconduct of employees. Adverse developments with respect to our industry may also, by association, negatively impact our reputation or result in greater regulatory or legislative scrutiny or litigation against us.
We and our customers are susceptible to fraud.
Financial institutions are inherently exposed to fraud risk. A fraud can be perpetrated by a customer, associate, vendor or member of the general public. We are most subject to fraud risk with the origination of loans, ACH and wire transactions, ATM transactions and checking transactions. Fraud risk within digital channels is challenging to detect and prevent and we are expanding our business more deeply into these channels. We rely on financial and other data from customers when we accept them as new customers and when they conduct transactions, which information could be fraudulent and expose us to losses that negatively impact our net income especially when delivered through digital channels. Our operational controls to prevent and detect such fraud may be ineffective in preventing new methods of fraud. If our customers experience fraud, theft or a cyber attack on their systems that results in loss of funds held at the Bank, they will often look to the Bank to make them whole regardless of fault, which can increase our costs to defend threatened litigation and result in loss of customer relationships.
STRATEGIC AND OTHER BUSINESS RISKS
Involvement in non-bank business creates risks associated with the securities industry.
Umpqua Investments' retail brokerage operations present special risks not borne by financial institutions that focus exclusively on traditional community banking. For example, the brokerage industry is subject to fluctuations in the stock market that may have a significant adverse impact on transaction fees, customer activity and investment portfolio gains and losses. Likewise, additional or modified regulations may adversely affect Umpqua Investments' operations. Umpqua Investments is also dependent on a small number of established brokers, whose departure could result in the loss of a significant number of customer accounts. A significant decline in fees and commissions or trading losses suffered in the investment portfolio could adversely affect Umpqua Investments' income and potentially require the contribution of additional capital to support its operations. Umpqua Investments is subject to claim arbitration risk arising from customers who claim their investments were not suitable or that their portfolios were too actively traded. These risks increase when the market declines. The risks associated with retail brokerage may not be supported by the income generated by those operations.
The financial services industry is highly competitive.
We face pricing competition for loans and deposits. We also face competition with respect to customer convenience, product lines, accessibility of service and service capabilities. Our most direct competition comes from other banks, brokerages, mortgage companies and savings institutions, but more recently has also come from fintech companies that rely on technology to provide financial services. We also face competition from credit unions, government-sponsored enterprises, mutual fund companies, insurance companies and other non-bank businesses. The significant competition in attracting and retaining deposits and making loans, as well as providing other financial services throughout our market area may impact future earnings and growth. Our success depends, in part, on the ability to adapt products and services to evolving industry standards. There is increasing pressure to provide products and services at lower prices, which can reduce net interest income and non-interest income from fee-based products and services.
ITEM 1B. UNRESOLVED STAFF COMMENTS.
ITEM 2. PROPERTIES.
The executive offices of Umpqua and Umpqua Investments are located at One SW Columbia Street in Portland, Oregon in office space that is leased. The Bank's headquarters, located in Roseburg, Oregon, is owned. At December 31, 2020, the Bank conducted commercial and retail banking activities at 265 locations, including 229 store locations, in Oregon, Washington, California, Idaho and Nevada. Our 265 locations include 104 owned and 161 leased locations. As of December 31, 2020, the Bank also operated 26 facilities for the purpose of administrative and other functions, such as back-office support, of which 2 are owned and 24 are leased. All facilities are in a good state of repair and appropriately designed for use as banking or administrative office facilities.
ITEM 3. LEGAL PROCEEDINGS.
Due to the nature of our business, we are involved in legal proceedings that arise in the ordinary course of our business. While the outcome of all of these matters is currently not determinable, we do not expect that the ultimate costs to resolve these matters will have a material adverse effect on our consolidated financial position, results of operations, or cash flows.
ITEM 4. MINE SAFETY DISCLOSURES.
ITEM 5. MARKET FOR REGISTRANT'S COMMON EQUITY, RELATED STOCKHOLDER MATTERS AND ISSUER PURCHASES OF EQUITY SECURITIES.
(a) Our common stock is traded on The NASDAQ Global Select Market under the symbol "UMPQ." As of December 31, 2020, our common stock was held by 4,315 shareholders of record, a number that does not include beneficial owners who hold shares in "street name," or shareholders from previously acquired companies that have not exchanged their stock. At December 31, 2020, a total of 1.3 million shares of unvested restricted shares were outstanding.
On March 13, 2020, Umpqua's Board of Directors approved a cash dividend of $0.21 for the first quarter 2020, which was paid on April 15, 2020. Subsequently, the Company changed the timing of its dividends from an intra-quarter announcement to after earnings for each quarter are released. The shift in timing was made to provide the Company’s Board of Directors and regulators the opportunity to review final quarterly financial results and financial projections prior to approval of any dividends. The Company paid the quarterly cash dividends for the second and third quarter of $0.21 per common share on August 31, 2020 and November 30, 2020, respectively. On February 1, 2021, the Company declared a cash dividend for 2020 in the amount of $0.21 per common share based on fourth quarter 2020 performance, which will be paid on February 26, 2021.
These dividends were made pursuant to our existing dividend policy and in consideration of, among other things, earnings, regulatory capital levels, the overall payout ratio and expected asset growth. We expect that the dividend rate will be reassessed on a quarterly basis by the Board of Directors in accordance with the dividend policy.
The payment of future cash dividends is at the discretion of our Board of Directors and subject to a number of factors, including results of operations, general business conditions, growth, financial condition and other factors deemed relevant by the Board of Directors. Further, our ability to pay future cash dividends is subject to certain regulatory requirements and restrictions discussed in the Supervision and Regulation section in Item 1 above.
We have a dividend reinvestment plan through our transfer agent that permits shareholder participants to purchase shares at the then-current market price in lieu of the receipt of cash dividends. Shares issued in connection with the dividend reinvestment plan are purchased in open market transactions.

During the three months ended December 31, 2020, no shares were repurchased pursuant to the Company's publicly announced corporate stock repurchase plan described in (2) below.
(2)The Company's share repurchase plan, which was first approved by the Board and announced in August 2003, was amended on September 29, 2011 to increase the number of common shares available for repurchase under the plan to 15 million shares. The repurchase program has been extended multiple times by the board with the current expiration date of July 31, 2021.

The timing and amount of future repurchases will depend upon the market price for our common stock, securities laws restricting repurchases, regulatory requirements for prior approval or non-objection, asset growth, earnings, and our capital plan.
Restricted shares cancelled to pay withholding taxes totaled 163,000 and 115,000 shares during the years ended December 31, 2020 and 2019, respectively.
