Bank of the Ozarks sees rising costs as headwind to improving efficiency ratio

Bank of the Ozarks management said on the company's Q3 earnings call that "traditionally [the bank has] been among the most efficient Bank Holding Companies in the US. After recording a 35.5% efficiency ratio for the first six months of 2016, our efficiency ratio increased 38.1% in the quarter just ended." The company noted that it hopes to achieve an improving efficiency ratio over the next several years and ultimately a sub 30% efficiency ratio, but added that expanding its "human and physical infrastructure" to serve low to moderate income and majority/minority markets and customer segments will be a "headwind" in its efforts to improve its efficiency ratio. The company added: "However, we believe our excellent organic growth will generate sufficient additional revenue for us to achieve our longer term efficiency ratio goal. Our guidance regarding an improvement efficiency ratio in future years does not consider the potential impact of any future acquisitions."

Overweight
Ozarks debt issue likely after Kroll ratings, says Piper Jaffray
Piper Jaffray analyst Peyton Green points out that Bank of the Ozarks received Kroll bond ratings on June 1 at the parent and bank subsidiary for subordinated debt and other liabilities. This likely precedes a subordinated debt issue, which could be in the $250M-$300M range, Green tells investors in a research note. A debt offering would indicate that Ozarks' growth "will remain robust," the analyst contends. He keeps an Overweight rating on the shares with a $46 price target.
