FNCB Bancorp, Inc. Reports Third Quarter Net Income of $1.850 Million

Company Release - 10/19/2018 4:05 PM ET

Year-To-Date Revenue of $31.7 Million Up 7.4% from Prior Year  

DUNMORE, Pa., Oct. 19, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- FNCB Bancorp, Inc. (NASDAQ: FNCB), the parent company of Dunmore-based FNCB Bank (the “Bank”), reported net income of $1.850 million, or $0.11 per basic and diluted share, for the third quarter of 2018, compared to net income of $2.272 million, or $0.14 per basic and diluted share, for the same quarter of 2017. The $422 thousand, or 18.6%, decrease in third quarter earnings reflected increases of $0.8 million in non-interest expense and $0.6 million in the provision for loan and lease losses, coupled with a $ 0.4 million decrease in non-interest income. Partially offsetting these factors was a $0.9 million increase in net interest income comparing the third quarters of 2018 and 2017. Net income for the nine months ended September 30, 2018 was $6.281 million, or $0.37 per basic and diluted share, compared to $6.261 million, or $0.37 per basic and diluted share, for the same period of 2017.

Cash Dividends Declared

Dividends declared and paid were $0.04 per share for the third quarter and $0.12 per share for the year-to-date period of 2018, which represented a 33.3% increase compared to $0.03 per share and $0.09 per share, respectively, for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2017. The dividend pay-out ratio for the nine months ended September 30, 2018 was 32.1%, compared to 24.0% for the same period of 2017.

Third Quarter 2018 Performance Highlights:

  • Year-to-date total revenue (net interest income and non-interest income) increased 7.4% year over year;
  • Net interest income (FTE) increased 10.5% and 11.9%, comparing the third quarter and year-to-date periods of 2018 and 2017, respectively;
  • Yield on earning assets (FTE) for the third quarter of 2018 improved 27 basis points compared to the same quarter of 2017;
  • Year over year growth in total loans, net of net deferred costs and unearned income, of $104.8 million, or 13.8%;
  • Total deposits grew $111.9 million, or 11.4%, comparing September 30, 2018 and 2017.

“The efforts of our dedicated team resulted in another solid and productive quarter characterized by continued loan and deposit growth, a double-digit increase in interest income compared to the prior year quarter, as well as solid year-over-year revenue growth (net interest income + non-interest income),” said Gerard A. Champi, President and Chief Executive Officer. “Loan demand in the third quarter of 2018 was driven by strong consumer loan activity and growth in our commercial real estate and municipal portfolios. Our third quarter loan loss provision was up $606 thousand in comparison to the third quarter 2017, primarily reflecting strong loan growth and a single commercial relationship that was placed on non-accrual status. Overall, our asset quality remains favorable with key industry metrics below or in line with peer levels.  Core deposit funding, which continues to be a strategic focus, has remained solid throughout 2018, contributing to the nearly 12.0% growth in total deposits year over year. Our continued deposit growth was gratifying because it occurred despite some rather aggressive pricing from competitors across our service footprint, indicative of the ongoing strength of the FNCB Bank brand. We continue to focus on improving financial performance, with a specific benchmark for return on average assets of 1.00%. At the close of the third quarter of 2018, our balance sheet remains strong and our ability to attract core deposits, as well as generate growth across our various loan portfolios, we believe leaves us well positioned to extend our performance through the remainder of 2018 and the first half of 2019.”

Summary Results for the Three and Nine Months Ended September 30, 2018

Tax-equivalent net interest income was $9.4 million for the third quarter of 2018, an increase of $0.9 million, or 10.5%, from $8.5 million for the same quarter of 2017. Tax-equivalent net interest income for the nine months ended September 30, 2018 increased $2.9 million, or 11.9%, to $27.7 million compared to $24.8 million for the same nine-month period of 2017. The improvement for both the quarter and year-to-date periods was largely due to growth in average earning assets and higher earning-asset yields, partially offset by higher funding costs. Average earning assets grew $133.3 million, or 12.9%, and $102.2 million, or 9.9%, comparing the three- and nine-month periods ended September 30, 2018 and 2017, respectively. Tax-equivalent earning-asset yields improved 27 basis points for the third quarter and 31 basis points for the nine months ended September 30, 2018 over the same periods of 2017. For the three months ended September 30, 2018, the cost of funds increased 41 basis points to 1.00% from 0.59% for the same period of 2017. Similarly, the cost of funds increased 31 basis points to 0.84% from 0.53% comparing the year-to-date periods of 2018 and 2017. The tax-equivalent net interest spread for the nine months ended September 30, 2018 and 2017 remained stable at 3.10%, while the tax-equivalent net interest margin increased 6 basis points to 3.24% from 3.18% comparing the nine months ended September 30, 2018 and 2017, respectively. Despite the increase in the year-to-date margin, rising funding costs in the third quarter of 2018 resulted in a decrease in the tax-equivalent net interest margin of 6 basis points to 3.21% from 3.27% from the same quarter of 2017.  Additionally, the net interest margin for the third quarter of 2018 compressed 5 basis points from the second quarter of 2018 percentage of 3.26%. For purposes of presenting net interest income, earning-asset yields and net interest margin information on a tax-equivalent basis, tax-free interest income is adjusted using the statutory federal corporate income tax rate of 21.0% for 2018 and 34.0% for 2017.

Non-interest income totaled $1.3 million for the three months ended September 30, 2018, a decrease of $0.4 million, or 23.0%, compared to $1.7 million for the comparable period of 2017. For the nine months ended September 30, 2018, non-interest income amounted to $4.4 million, a decrease of $0.9 million, or 17.7%, compared to $5.3 million for the same period of 2017. Included in non-interest income for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2017 were net gains on the sale of available-for sale securities of $0.4 million and $1.3 million, respectively. Comparatively, there were no net gains on the sale of available-for-sale securities for the three months ended September 30, 2018. For the nine months ended September 30, 2018, FNCB realized net losses on the sale of available-for-sale securities of $4 thousand.

For the three months ended September 30, 2018, non-interest expense increased $0.8 million, or 12.4%, to $7.2 million from $6.4 million for the same three months of 2017. Comparing the nine months ended September 30, 2018 and 2017, non-interest expense increased $1.1 million, or 5.5%.  The increase in non-interest expense resulted largely from higher salaries and employee benefits expense related to staffing additions within FNCB Bank’s retail and commercial lending and credit administration units, coupled with increases in regulatory assessments, which, we believe, primarily reflected strong balance sheet growth.

Annualized return on average assets and return on average equity was 0.59% and 8.41%, respectively, for the three months ended September 30, 2018, compared to 0.80% and 9.27%, for the respective periods of 2017. For the nine months ended September 30, 2018, annualized return on average assets and return on average equity was 0.69% and 9.68%, respectively, compared to 0.74% and 8.87%, respectively, for the nine months ended September 30, 2017.

Asset Quality

Total non-performing loans were $4.4 million at September 30, 2018, an increase of $0.9 million from $3.5 million at June 30, 2018 and $1.8 million from $2.6 million at September 30, 2017. The increase from June 30, 2018 was primarily attributable to one commercial relationship that was placed on non-accrual status. The ratio of non-performing loans to total loans was 0.51% at September 30, 2018, compared to 0.41% at June 30, 2018 and 0.35% at September 30, 2017. Despite the increase in non-performing loans from the previous quarter end, FNCB’s asset quality continued to compare favorably to the peer average of 0.64% at June 30, 2018, the most recent data reported in the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System Bank Holding Company Performance Report for bank holding companies having assets between $1.0 billion and $3.0 billion. The allowance for loan and lease losses as a percentage of gross loans was 1.14% at September 30, 2018, 1.11% at June 30, 2018 and 1.17% at September 30, 2017.

Financial Condition

Total assets increased $88.8 million, or 7.6%, to $1.251 billion at September 30, 2018 from $1.162 billion at December 31, 2017. The increase in total assets primarily reflected strong growth in interest-earning assets. Specifically, loans, net of net deferred costs and unearned income, increased $93.7 million, or 12.2%, to $864.3 million at September 30, 2018 from $770.6 million at December 31, 2017. The asset growth was funded with an increase in total deposits of $92.7 million, or 9.2%, to $1.095 billion at September 30, 2018 from $1.002 billion at December 31, 2017. The increase in deposits was primarily attributable to increases in retail and wholesale time deposits, coupled with cyclical inflows from municipal customers.

Total shareholders’ equity decreased $2.6 million, or 2.9%, to $86.6 million at September 30, 2018 from $89.2 million at December 31, 2017. The reduction in capital resulted primarily from a $7.1 million increase in accumulated other comprehensive loss related to depreciation in the fair value of available-for-sale debt securities, net of deferred taxes, and year-to-date dividends declared of $2.0 million. Partially offsetting these decreases was net income of $6.3 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2018. Despite the decrease in capital, FNCB remains well capitalized with total risk-based capital and Tier I leverage ratios of 11.42% and 7.66%, respectively, at September 30, 2018.
