Community Trust Bancorp, Inc. (NASDAQ: CTBI) reports earnings for the second quarter 2019 of $18.3 million, or $1.03 per basic share, compared to $14.9 million, or $0.84 per basic share, earned during the first quarter 2019 and $11.6 million, or $0.66 per basic share, earned during the second quarter 2018. Earnings for the six months ended June 30, 2019 were $33.3 million, or $1.88 per basic share, compared to $27.4 million, or $1.55 per basic share, earned during the six months ended June 30, 2018.

2nd Quarter 2019 Highlights

  • Net interest income for the quarter of $36.0 million was flat to prior quarter, but an increase of $0.9 million, or 2.5%, from second quarter 2018.
  • Provision for loan losses for the quarter ended June 30, 2019 increased $1.4 million from prior quarter but decreased $0.4 million from prior year same quarter.
  • Our loan portfolio increased $2.5 million, an annualized 0.3%, during the quarter and $23.2 million, or 0.7%, from June 30, 2018.
  • Net loan charge-offs for the quarter ended June 30, 2019 were $1.6 million, or 0.20% of average loans annualized, compared to $1.1 million, or 0.14%, experienced for the first quarter 2019 and $1.3 million, or 0.17%, for the second quarter 2018.
  • Nonperforming loans at $24.0 million decreased $1.4 million from March 31, 2019 but increased $2.0 million from June 30, 2018. Nonperforming assets at $46.5 million decreased $3.9 million from March 31, 2019 and $5.8 million from June 30, 2018.
  • Deposits, including repurchase agreements, increased $49.8 million, an annualized 5.5%, during the quarter and $112.2 million, or 3.2%, from June 30, 2018.
  • Noninterest income for the quarter ended June 30, 2019 of $12.3 million was a $0.1 million increase over prior quarter, but a decrease of $1.5 million, or 10.8%, from prior year same quarter.
  • Noninterest expense for the quarter ended June 30, 2019 of $30.0 million increased $0.9 million, or 3.3%, from prior quarter, but decreased $2.4 million, or 7.4%, from prior year same quarter.
  • In April 2019, Kentucky enacted HB458. HB458 allows for combined filing of state income taxes with CTBI and its subsidiaries, Community Trust Bank, Inc. and Community Trust and Investment Company, Inc. CTBI had previously filed a separate company return and generated net operating losses, in which it had maintained a valuation allowance against the related deferred tax asset. HB458 also allows for certain net operating losses to be utilized on a combined return. CTBI expects to file a combined return, beginning in 2021, and to utilize these previously generated losses. The tax benefit recorded in the second quarter 2019 to reverse the valuation allowance on the deferred tax asset for these losses was $3.6 million, or $0.21 per basic share.

Net Interest Income

Net interest income for the quarter of $36.0 million was relatively flat to prior quarter, but an increase of $0.9 million, or 2.5%, from second quarter 2018. Our net interest margin at 3.57% declined 13 basis points from prior quarter and 4 basis points from prior year same quarter, while our average earning assets increased $102.8 million and $141.3 million, respectively, during those same periods. Our yield on average earning assets decreased 8 basis points from prior quarter but increased 32 basis points from prior year same quarter, and our cost of funds increased 7 basis points from prior quarter and 52 basis points from prior year same quarter. Our ratio of average loans to deposits, including repurchase agreements, was 87.3% for the quarter ended June 30, 2019 compared to 89.9% for the quarter ended March 31, 2019 and 88.1% for the quarter ended June 30, 2018. Net interest income for the six months ended June 30, 2019 increased $2.3 million, or 3.3%, from June 30, 2018.

Noninterest Income

Noninterest income for the quarter ended June 30, 2019 of $12.3 million was a $0.1 million increase over prior quarter, but a decrease of $1.5 million, or 10.8%, from prior year same quarter. The decrease in noninterest income from prior year was primarily the result of a $0.5 million decrease in loan related fees due to a decline in the fair market value of our mortgage servicing rights, along with a $1.0 million decrease in other operating revenue. Other operating revenue for the second quarter 2018 included a gain on the sale of a partnership interest resulting from a low income housing tax credit recapture. Noninterest income for the six months ended June 30, 2019 was a $2.6 million, or 9.7%, decrease from prior year.

Noninterest Expense

Noninterest expense for the quarter ended June 30, 2019 of $30.0 million increased $0.9 million, or 3.3%, from prior quarter, but decreased $2.4 million, or 7.4%, from prior year same quarter. The increase in noninterest expense from prior quarter consisted of increases in FDIC insurance ($0.2 million), net other real estate owned expense ($0.3 million), operating losses ($0.2 million), loan related expense ($0.2 million), and other direct expense ($0.4 million), partially offset by a $0.3 million decrease in repossession expense. The $0.4 million increase in other direct expense was the result of increased amortization expense related to tax credits. The decrease from prior year was due to the previously disclosed $3.6 million accrual in June 2018 for customer reimbursements, partially offset by a $0.7 million increase in personnel expense. The increase in personnel expense included a $0.9 million increase in salaries, partially offset by a $0.3 million decrease in the cost of group medical insurance. Noninterest expense for the six months ended June 30, 2019 was $59.1 million, a $2.0 million, or 3.3%, decrease from the first six months of 2018.

Balance Sheet Review

CTBI’s total assets at $4.4 billion increased $64.0 million, or 5.9% annualized, from March 31, 2019 and $172.1 million, or 4.1%, from June 30, 2018. Loans outstanding at June 30, 2019 were $3.2 billion, an increase of $2.5 million, an annualized 0.3%, from March 31, 2019 and $23.2 million, or 0.7%, from June 30, 2018. We experienced increases during the quarter of $2.0 million in the commercial loan portfolio, $7.1 million in the residential loan portfolio, and $3.3 million in the direct consumer loan portfolio, offset by a decrease of $9.9 million in the indirect consumer loan portfolio. CTBI’s investment portfolio decreased $7.5 million, or an annualized 5.0%, from March 31, 2019 but increased $7.5 million, or 1.3%, from June 30, 2018. Deposits in other banks increased $67.8 million from prior quarter and $120.3 million from prior year same quarter, as the yield earned was favorable to other investment alternatives. Deposits, including repurchase agreements, at $3.7 billion increased $49.8 million, or an annualized 5.5%, from March 31, 2019 and $112.2 million, or 3.2%, from June 30, 2018.

Shareholders’ equity at June 30, 2019 was $594.7 million, a 11.9% annualized increase from the $577.5 million at March 31, 2019 and a 9.7% increase from the $542.2 million at June 30, 2018. CTBI’s annualized dividend yield to shareholders as of June 30, 2019 was 3.41%.

Asset Quality

CTBI’s total nonperforming loans, not including performing troubled debt restructurings, were $24.0 million, or 0.75% of total loans, at June 30, 2019 compared to $25.4 million, or 0.80% of total loans, at March 31, 2019 and $22.0 million, or 0.69% of total loans, at June 30, 2018. Accruing loans 90+ days past due decreased $1.9 million from prior quarter but increased $3.9 million from June 30, 2018. Nonaccrual loans increased $0.5 million during the quarter but decreased $1.9 million from June 30, 2018. Accruing loans 30-89 days past due at $30.6 million was an increase of $8.8 million from prior quarter and $7.1 million from June 30, 2018. The increase in loans 30-89 days past due is primarily two credits, both of which are well collateralized. 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, 2019 totaled $54.6 million, compared to $50.4 million at March 31, 2019 and $46.7 million at June 30, 2018.

Our level of foreclosed properties at $22.5 million at June 30, 2019 was a $2.5 million decrease from the $25.0 million at March 31, 2019 and a $7.8 million decrease from the $30.3 million at June 30, 2018. Sales of foreclosed properties for the quarter ended June 30, 2019 totaled $2.1 million while new foreclosed properties totaled $0.4 million. At June 30, 2019, the book value of properties under contracts to sell was $1.6 million; however, the closings had not occurred at quarter-end. Write-downs on foreclosed properties for the second quarter 2019 totaled $0.7 million compared to $0.4 million in the first quarter 2019 and $0.9 million in the second quarter 2018. As disclosed in our Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2018, CTBI is required to dispose of any foreclosed property that has not been sold within 10 years. As of December 31, 2018, foreclosed property with a total book value of $2.4 million had been held by us for at least nine years. During the first six months of 2019, we disposed of $1.8 million of this total. At June 30, 2019, foreclosed property with a total book value of $0.6 million had been held by us for at least nine years.

Net loan charge-offs for the quarter ended June 30, 2019 were $1.6 million, or 0.20% of average loans annualized, compared to $1.1 million, or 0.14%, experienced for the first quarter 2019 and $1.3 million, or 0.17%, for the second quarter 2018. Of the net charge-offs for the quarter, $0.9 million were in commercial loans, $0.2 million were in indirect consumer loans, $0.2 million were in residential loans, and $0.3 million were in direct consumer loans. Allocations to loan loss reserves were $1.6 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2019 compared to $0.2 million for the quarter ended March 31, 2019 and $1.9 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2018. Our reserve coverage (allowance for loan and lease loss reserve to nonperforming loans) at June 30, 2019 was 146.0% compared to 137.8% at March 31, 2019 and 162.6% at June 30, 2018. Our loan loss reserve as a percentage of total loans outstanding at June 30, 2019 and March 31, 2019 was 1.10%, down from the 1.13% at June 30, 2018.
