Community Trust Bancorp, Inc. (NASDAQ-CTBI) reports record earnings for the second quarter 2020 of $19.7 million, or $1.11 per basic share, compared to $6.6 million, or $0.37 per basic share, earned during the first quarter 2020 and $18.3 million, or $1.03 per basic share, earned during the second quarter 2019. The increase in earnings for the quarter was impacted by a $12.8 million positive variance in charges to the provision for credit losses. Year-to-date earnings for the six months ended June 30, 2020 were $26.2 million, or $1.48 per basic share, compared to $33.3 million, or $1.88 per basic share, for the six months ended June 30, 2019.

We continue to work diligently with our customers as we all continue to battle COVID-19. At June 30, 2020, we had 3,668 COVID-19 loan deferrals totaling $756.6 million, consisting of 850 commercial loan deferrals totaling $639.4 million, 485 residential loan deferrals totaling $63.3 million, and 2,264 consumer loan deferrals totaling $44.6 million, in addition to 69 serviced loan deferrals, pursuant to Freddie Mac guidelines, totaling $9.3 million. We also had 50 customers who had previously received COVID-19 loan deferrals that have requested assistance for a second time. Those deferrals total $68.4 million, consisting of 30 commercial loans deferrals totaling $65.7 million, 18 residential loan deferrals totaling $2.2 million, and two serviced loan deferrals, pursuant to Freddie Mac guidelines, totaling $0.5 million. These loan deferrals and modifications have been executed consistent with the guidelines of the CARES Act. Pursuant to the CARES Act, these loan deferrals are not included in our nonperforming loans disclosed below. We have continued participating in the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) stemming from the CARES Act passed by Congress as a stimulus response to the potential economic impacts of COVID-19. As of June 30, 2020, we had 2,848 PPP loans authorized totaling $275.9 million. Of these, 2,703 were under $350 thousand, 132 were between $350 thousand and $2.0 million, and 13 were over $2.0 million. We have closed 2,782 of these loans for a total amount of $274.1 million.

2nd Quarter 2020 Highlights

  • Net interest income for the quarter of $38.5 million was $2.2 million, or 6.1%, above prior quarter and $2.4 million, or 6.8%, above second quarter 2019.
  • Provision for credit losses for the quarter ended June 30, 2020 decreased $12.8 million from prior quarter and $1.6 million from prior year same quarter. The $12.7 million provision from prior quarter was a result of the projected economic impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, as disclosed in our prior quarter filings.
  • Our loan portfolio increased $251.2 million, an annualized 30.7%, during the quarter and $346.6 million, or 10.9%, from June 30, 2019.
  • Net loan charge-offs for the quarter ended June 30, 2020 were $2.8 million, or 0.32% of average loans annualized, compared to $1.4 million, or 0.17%, experienced for the first quarter 2020 and $1.6 million, or 0.20%, for the second quarter 2019.
  • Nonperforming loans at $36.2 million increased $0.8 million from March 31, 2020 and $12.2 million from June 30, 2019. Nonperforming assets at $53.8 million decreased $1.4 million from March 31, 2020 but increased $7.3 million from June 30, 2019.
  • Deposits, including repurchase agreements, increased $636.3 million, an annualized 70.5%, during the quarter and $597.9 million, or 16.3%, from June 30, 2019.
  • Noninterest income for the quarter ended June 30, 2020 of $12.9 million was a $1.4 million, or 11.8%, increase from prior quarter and a $0.6 million, or 5.1%, increase from prior year same quarter.
  • Noninterest expense for the quarter ended June 30, 2020 of $27.9 million decreased $0.3 million, or 1.1%, from prior quarter, and $2.1 million, or 7.1%, from prior year same quarter.

Net Interest Income

Net interest income for the quarter of $38.5 million was an increase of $2.2 million, or 6.1%, from first quarter 2020 and an increase of $2.4 million, or 6.8%, from second quarter 2019. Our net interest margin at 3.41% decreased 17 basis points from prior quarter and 16 basis points from prior year same quarter, while our average earning assets increased $465.8 million and $490.3 million, respectively, during those same periods. Our yield on average earning assets decreased 43 basis points from prior quarter and 65 basis points from prior year same quarter, and our cost of funds decreased 34 basis points from prior quarter and 65 basis points from prior year same quarter. Our ratio of average loans to deposits, including repurchase agreements, was 84.5% for the quarter ended June 30, 2020 compared to 89.9% for the quarter ended March 31, 2020 and 87.3% for the quarter ended June 30, 2019. Year-to-date net interest income for the six months ended June 30, 2020 was $74.7 million compared to $72.0 million for the six months ended June 30, 2019.

Noninterest Income

Noninterest income for the quarter ended June 30, 2020 of $12.9 million was a $1.4 million, or 11.8%, increase from prior quarter and a $0.6 million, or 5.1%, increase from prior year same quarter. The increase in noninterest income for the quarter was the result of a $1.3 million increase in gains on sales of loans, a $0.7 million increase in loan related fees, and a $0.7 million increase in securities gains, partially offset by a $1.0 million decrease in deposit related fees and a $0.3 million decrease in trust revenue. The increase in loan related fees is due to fluctuation in the valuation of our mortgage servicing rights. The decrease in deposit related fees was impacted by a 30-day waiver of overdraft charges as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic which resulted in a $0.7 million loss in revenue in April. Additionally, overdraft fees have seen a general decline since the COVID – 19 pandemic resulting in an additional decline in overdraft revenue of $0.7 million. The decrease in overdraft fees was partially offset by a $0.4 million increase in Visa Debit fee income. The positive variance to prior year same quarter included a $1.2 million increase in gains on sales of loans, a $0.7 million increase in securities gains, and a $0.4 million increase in loan related fees, partially offset by a $1.6 million decrease in deposit service charges and a $0.2 million decrease in trust revenue. Year-to-date noninterest income was $24.4 million for both the six months periods ending June 30, 2020 and 2019.

Noninterest Expense

Noninterest expense for the quarter ended June 30, 2020 of $27.9 million decreased $0.3 million, or 1.1%, from prior quarter, and $2.1 million, or 7.1%, from prior year same quarter. The decrease from prior quarter was primarily due to a $0.3 million decrease in net other real estate owned expense. The decrease in noninterest expense from prior year same quarter included a $0.9 million decrease in personnel expense, as bonuses and incentives decreased $0.6 million and the cost of group medical and life insurance declined $0.4 million. Noninterest expense for the six months ended June 30, 2020 was $3.0 million below the six months ended June 30, 2019 as personnel expense decreased $1.9 million year over year, with decreases of $1.7 million in bonuses and incentives and $0.8 million in the cost of group medical and life insurance, offset partially by an increase of $0.8 million in salaries. The accruals for incentive payments are lower than prior year based on our current projected earnings for the year. We also had decreases year over year in several other noninterest expense categories, such as FDIC insurance ($0.1 million), marketing and promotional ($0.2 million), advertising ($0.3 million), charitable contributions ($0.1 million), postage and shipping ($0.1 million), and net other real estate owned expense ($0.3 million).

Balance Sheet Review

CTBI’s total assets at $5.0 billion increased $670.2 million, or 61.9% annualized, from March 31, 2020 and $645.6 million, or 14.7%, from June 30, 2019. Loans outstanding at June 30, 2020 were $3.5 billion, an increase of $251.2 million, an annualized 30.7%, from March 31, 2020 and $346.6 million, or 10.9%, from June 30, 2019. We experienced increases during the quarter of $229.1 million in the commercial loan portfolio (primarily PPP loans), $41.8 million in the indirect consumer loan portfolio, and $1.9 million in the direct consumer loan portfolio, offset partially by a $21.6 million decrease in the residential loan portfolio. The historically low mortgage loan rates have created a significant refinancing boom. In the quarter ended June 30, 2020, we closed and delivered 647 secondary market mortgage loans for a total of $116.4 million compared to 122 secondary market mortgage loans closed and delivered totaling $16.0 million in the second quarter 2019. Correspondingly, our total mortgage servicing portfolio increased by $34.5 million during the quarter to $486.3 million. CTBI’s investment portfolio increased $107.4 million, or an annualized 68.0%, from March 31, 2020 and $148.6 million, or 25.0%, from June 30, 2019. Deposits in other banks increased $289.9 million from prior quarter and $145.8 million from prior year same quarter. Deposits, including repurchase agreements, at $4.3 billion increased $636.3 million, or an annualized 70.5%, from March 31, 2020 and $597.9 million, or 16.3%, from June 30, 2019. The increase in deposits is primarily the result of the receipt of advance Medicare payments from some customers in the healthcare industry, PPP loan proceeds retained on deposit by corporate borrowers, and stimulus payments received and retained by our customers, all a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Shareholders’ equity at June 30, 2020 was $631.8 million, an $18.9 million increase from the $612.9 million at March 31, 2020 and a $37.1 million increase from the $594.7 million at June 30, 2019. CTBI’s annualized dividend yield to shareholders as of June 30, 2020 was 4.64%.

Asset Quality

CTBI’s total nonperforming loans, not including performing troubled debt restructurings, were $36.2 million, or 1.02% of total loans, at June 30, 2020 compared to $35.4 million, or 1.08% of total loans, at March 31, 2020 and $24.0 million, or 0.75% of total loans, at June 30, 2019. Accruing loans 90+ days past due increased $3.8 million from prior quarter and $10.7 million from June 30, 2019. The increase in accruing loans 90+ days past due includes a $4 million loan which is well-secured and in the process of collection. Nonaccrual loans decreased $3.0 million during the quarter but increased $1.5 million from June 30, 2019. Accruing loans 30-89 days past due at $13.7 million decreased $10.4 million from prior quarter and $16.9 million from June 30, 2019. Our loan portfolio management processes focus on the immediate identification, management, and resolution of problem loans to maximize recovery and minimize loss.

Our level of foreclosed properties at $17.7 million at June 30, 2020 was a $2.1 million decrease from the $19.8 million at March 31, 2020 and a $4.9 million decrease from the $22.5 million at June 30, 2019. Sales of foreclosed properties for the quarter ended June 30, 2020 totaled $2.1 million while new foreclosed properties totaled $0.2 million. The suspension of residential foreclosure actions as a result of COVID-19 has continued through the second quarter 2020. At June 30, 2020, the book value of properties under contracts to sell was $3.5 million; however, the closings had not occurred at quarter-end. Write-downs on foreclosed properties for the second quarter 2020 totaled $0.3 million compared to $0.5 million in the first quarter 2020 and $0.7 million in the second quarter 2019. As disclosed in our Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2019, CTBI is required to dispose of any foreclosed property that has not been sold within 10 years. As of June 30, 2020, two foreclosed properties with a total book value of $1.0 million had been held by us for at least nine years. One of the properties totaling $0.9 million is expected to sell in the third quarter 2020 at no expected loss.

Net loan charge-offs for the quarter ended June 30, 2020 were $2.8 million, or 0.32% of average loans annualized, compared to $1.4 million, or 0.17%, experienced for the first quarter 2020 and $1.6 million, or 0.20%, for the second quarter 2019. Of the net charge-offs for the quarter, $2.1 million were in commercial loans, $0.4 million were in indirect consumer loans, $0.2 million were in direct consumer loans, and $0.1 million were in residential loans.

Allowance for Credit Losses

While our overall outlook for credit quality has not changed, the allowance for credit losses (ACL) declined by $2.8 million or 19 basis points during the quarter ended June 30, 2020. The decline was primarily in the specific reserves allocated to individually evaluated loans. These specific reserves declined from $3.2 million at March 31, 2020 to $0.5 million at June 30, 2020. Driving this $2.8 million reduction was action taken on two commercial credit relationships which have been in workout for some time. We restructured one credit relationship, thus eliminating $1.5 million in specific reserves, and charged down another relationship totaling $1.7 million that previously had $0.8 million in specific reserves. Additionally, we transferred eight credits totaling $1.4 million into the general analysis pool, in accordance with our ACL policy, with a corresponding reduction in specific reserves of $0.5 million. The decline in ACL as a percentage of loans was also driven by the large growth in Paycheck Protection Program loans during the quarter of $267.0 million. As one hundred percent SBA guaranteed loans, these loans were provided no allowance for credit losses. These decreases were partially offset by growth during the quarter in our indirect lending segment of $41.8 million and our hotel/motel segment of $8.5 million.

As a result of items discussed in the paragraph above, allocations to the allowance for credit losses for the quarter ended June 30, 2020 were a credit of $49 thousand, a decrease of $12.8 million from prior quarter and $1.6 million from prior year same quarter. As discussed more fully in our first quarter 2020 earnings release and Form 10-Q, the substantial allocation to the allowance during the first quarter 2020 was directly attributable to the COVID-19 pandemic and its expected potential impact on future net charge-offs. Our reserve coverage (allowance for credit losses to nonperforming loans) at June 30, 2020 was 129.0% compared to 139.8% at March 31, 2020 and allowance for loan and lease losses to nonperforming loans of 146.0% at June 30, 2019. Our credit loss reserve as a percentage of total loans outstanding at June 30, 2020 decreased to 1.32% from the 1.50% at March 31, 2020 but above the allowance for loan loss reserve incurred loss model of 1.10% from June 30, 2019.
