2nd Quarter 2017 Highlights

  • Net interest income for the quarter of $34.2 million was an increase of $1.1 million, or 3.5%, from first quarter 2017 and $1.2 million, or 3.6%, from prior year second quarter.
  • While net charge-offs improved for the quarter, provision for loan losses for the quarter ended June 30, 2017 increased $1.5 million over prior quarter and $0.9 million over prior year same quarter as a result of an increase in our loan portfolio.
  • Our loan portfolio increased $117.5 million, an annualized 15.9%, during the quarter and $156.0 million from June 30, 2016.
  • Net loan charge-offs for the quarter ended June 30, 2017 were $1.3 million, or 0.18% of average loans annualized, compared to $1.4 million, or 0.20%, experienced for the first quarter 2017 and $2.5 million, or 0.34%, for the second quarter 2016.
  • Nonperforming loans at $28.0 million increased $2.9 million from March 31, 2017 and $3.3 million from June 30, 2016. Nonperforming assets at $60.7 million decreased $0.2 million from March 31, 2017 and $1.9 million from June 30, 2016.
  • Deposits, including repurchase agreements, decreased $54.5 million during the quarter but increased $59.5 million from June 30, 2016.
  • Noninterest income for the quarter ended June 30, 2017 of $12.3 million was an increase of $0.7 million, or 6.3%, from prior quarter and $0.5 million, or 4.6%, from prior year same quarter. The increase for the quarter was primarily the result of a $0.6 million gain on the repurchase of $2.0 million in trust preferred securities.
  • Noninterest expense for the quarter ended June 30, 2017 of $27.6 million remained relatively flat to prior quarter, but increased $0.4 million, or 1.4%, from prior year same quarter. The increase in noninterest expense was due to an increase in net other real estate owned expense.

Net Interest Income

Net interest income for the quarter of $34.2 million was an increase of $1.1 million, or 3.5%, from first quarter 2017 and $1.2 million, or 3.6%, from prior year second quarter. Our net interest margin at 3.68% remained flat to prior quarter but decreased 3 basis points from prior year same quarter, while our average earnings assets increased $77.9 million and $147.6 million, respectively, during those same periods. Our yield on average earning assets increased 5 basis points from prior quarter and prior year same quarter, and our cost of funds increased 5 basis points from prior quarter and 10 basis points from prior year same quarter. Our ratio of average loans to deposits, including repurchase agreements, was 89.9% for the quarter ended June 30, 2017 compared to 87.9% for the quarter ended March 31, 2017 and 88.1% for the quarter ended June 30, 2016. Net interest income for the six months ended June 30, 2017 increased $0.9 million, or 1.4%, from June 30, 2016.

Noninterest Income

Noninterest income for the quarter ended June 30, 2017 of $12.3 million was an increase of $0.7 million, or 6.3%, from prior quarter and $0.5 million, or 4.6%, from prior year same quarter. The increase for the quarter was primarily the result of a $0.6 million gain on the repurchase of $2.0 million in trust preferred securities. Noninterest income for the six months ended June 30, 2017 increased $1.2 million, or 5.1%, compared to the six months ended June 30, 2016. This increase included a $0.6 million increase in trust revenue and a $0.4 million increase in loan related fees, in addition to the $0.6 million gain mentioned above, offset partially by a $0.3 million decrease in gains on sales of loans. Loan related fees were affected by fluctuations in the fair value adjustments of our mortgage servicing rights with a $0.3 million improvement year over year.

Noninterest Expense

Noninterest expense for the quarter ended June 30, 2017 of $27.6 million remained relatively flat to prior quarter, but increased $0.4 million, or 1.4%, from prior year same quarter. The increase in noninterest expense was due to an increase in net other real estate owned expense ($0.9 million quarter over quarter and $1.4 million year over year), partially offset by a decrease in personnel expense ($0.9 million quarter over quarter and $0.3 million year over year) and a $0.3 million decrease in FDIC insurance premiums year over year. The increase in net other real estate owned expense was primarily the result of $0.9 million in write-downs on two commercial properties during the quarter. The decrease in personnel expense was primarily due to a reduction in the company performance based incentive accrual. Noninterest expense for the six months ended June 30, 2017 increased $1.8 million, or 3.3%, compared to the six months ended June 30, 2016, as a result of a $1.7 million increase in net other real estate owned expense. Personnel expense for the six months ended June 30, 2017 increased $0.5 million from prior year with a $0.7 million increase in salaries and a $0.5 million increase in the cost of group medical and life insurance, partially offset by a $0.4 million decrease in bonuses and incentives. FDIC insurance premiums decreased $0.6 million from prior year.

Nonaccrual loans increased $3.2 million during the quarter and from June 30, 2016, primarily due to two commercial customers whose credits are adequately collateralized or have a specific reserve established. Loans 30-89 days past due at $15.2 million was a decrease of $0.1 million from March 31, 2017 and $3.8 million from June 30, 2016. Our loan portfolio management processes focus on the immediate identification, management, and resolution of problem loans to maximize recovery and minimize loss. Impaired loans, loans not expected to meet contractual principal and interest payments other than insignificant delays, at June 30, 2017 totaled $50.7 million, a $0.4 million increase from the $50.3 million at March 31, 2017 but a $2.6 million decrease from the $53.3 million at June 30, 2016.

At June 30, 2017, the book value of properties under contracts to sell was $3.4 million; however, the closings had not occurred at quarter-end. Write-downs on foreclosed properties for the second quarter 2017 totaled $1.4 million compared to $0.5 million in the first quarter 2017 and $0.1 million in the second quarter 2016. The write-downs during the quarter included $0.9 million on two commercial properties.

Net loan charge-offs for the quarter ended June 30, 2017 were $1.3 million, or 0.18% of average loans annualized, compared to $1.4 million, or 0.20%, experienced for the first quarter 2017 and $2.5 million, or 0.34%, for the second quarter 2016. Of the net charge-offs for the quarter, $0.6 million were in commercial loans, $0.5 million were in indirect auto loans, $0.1 million were in residential loans, and $0.1 million were in consumer direct loans. Allocations to loan loss reserves were $2.8 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2017 compared to $1.2 million for the quarter ended March 31, 2017 and $1.9 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2016.
