Friday, 30. October 2020 21:05

DUNMORE, Pa., Oct. 30, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- FNCB Bancorp, Inc. (NASDAQ: FNCB; www.fncb.com), the parent company of Dunmore-based FNCB Bank (the “Bank”), today reported net income of $4.1 million, or $0.20 per basic and diluted share, for the three months ended September 30, 2020, an increase of $1.7 million, or 70.9% from $2.4 million, or $0.12 per basic and diluted share, for the comparable period of 2019. The increase in earnings comparing the third quarters of 2020 and 2019 was primarily due to increases in net interest income and non-interest income, coupled with a reduction in the provision for loan and lease losses. Net income for the nine months ended September 30, 2020 totaled $10.2 million, or $0.50 per basic and diluted share, an increase of $2.6 million, or 34.3%, compared to $7.6 million, or $0.39 per basic and diluted share, for the same nine months of 2019. The increased earnings for the year-to-date period of 2020 reflected increases in net interest income and non-interest income and a decrease in non-interest expense, partially offset by an increase in the provision for loan and lease losses. Additionally, the results for the third quarter and year-to-date periods of 2020 include the effect on interest income, not including the recognition of any net origination fee income, of $118.6 million in loans originated through the Paycheck Protection Program ("PPP") of United States Small Business Administration ("SBA"), as well as COVID-19 related expenses of approximately $199 thousand.  

For the three and nine months ended September 30, 2020, the annualized return on average assets was 1.15% and 1.03%, respectively, compared to 0.80% and 0.84%, respectively, for the same periods of 2019. The annualized return on average equity was 11.05% and 9.63%, respectively, for the three- and nine-month periods ended September 30, 2020, and 7.30% and 8.32%, respectively, for the comparable periods of 2019. Dividends declared and paid were $0.055 per share for the third quarter and $0.165 per share for the year-to-date period of 2020, a 10.0% increase compared to $0.05 per share and $0.15 per share, respectively, for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2019. The dividend pay-out ratio was 32.7% for the nine months ended September 30, 2020 and 39.8% for the comparable period of 2019. Year-to-date 2020 dividends equated to an annualized dividend yield of approximately 4.1% based on the closing stock price of $5.32 per share at September 30, 2020.

Third quarter 2020 results as compared to the third quarter of 2019:

 Net interest income (FTE) increased $0.9 million, or 10.1%;
 Yield on earnings assets (FTE) decreased 74 basis points to 3.48% in 2020 from 4.22% in 2019;

"We are pleased with FNCB's performance not only from a financial perspective, but also in how our entire FNCB team continues to adapt and respond to the changing needs of our customers and communities as the pandemic persists," stated Gerard A. Champi, President and CEO. "With the SBA now accepting PPP loan forgiveness applications, we are providing our customers with educational tools including an on-demand webinar and online tutorials, as well as direct outreach, to help them navigate the forgiveness process. Additionally, while loan deferral and modification requests have lessened, which is a positive sign, we continue to proactively communicate with our lending customers to provide prudent assistance as needed. FNCB's asset quality metrics have been favorable and the Company's earnings performance has benefitted from several large loan recoveries received in the third quarter. FNCB's performance was also favorably impacted by lower funding costs, however the challenging rate environment and low-yielding PPP loans have started to place pressure on net interest margins. We remain cautiously optimistic that our strong balance sheet and favorable liquidity position will allow us to meet our financial goals and continue to assist our customers for the remainder of 2020 and beyond," concluded Champi.

Summary Results 

Net interest income on a tax-equivalent basis increased $927 thousand, or 10.1%, to $10.1 million for the three months ended September 30, 2020 from $9.1 million for the comparable period of 2019. The improvement in tax-equivalent net interest income for the third quarter of 2020 was primarily due to a decrease in interest expense of $1.0 million, or 40.7%, to $1.5 million from $2.5 million for the same period of 2019, slightly offset by a decrease in tax-equivalent interest income of $72 thousand, or 0.6%, to $11.5 million for the three months ended September 30, 2020 from $11.6 million for the same period of 2019. The decrease in interest expense primarily reflected a decline in market interest rates as FNCB's cost of funds decreased 52 basis points to 0.59% for the third quarter of 2020 from 1.11% for the same quarter of 2019. Specifically, the cost of interest-bearing deposits fell 41 basis points to 0.55% from 0.96% comparing the third quarters of 2020 and 2019, while average borrowing costs decreased 130 basis points to 1.28% for the three months ended September 30, 2020 from 2.58% for the three months ended September 30, 2019. FNCB continued to experience a deposit surge in the third quarter of 2020 as changing customer deposit preferences and higher balances due to the reduction in economic activity and uncertainty related to the COVID-19 pandemic persisted. Total average interest-bearing deposits increased $148.8 million, or 18.7%, to $943.8 million from $795.0 million comparing the third quarters of 2020 and 2019. The increase in deposit volumes had little impact on interest expense, as FNCB used the excess liquidity to repay higher-costing borrowed funds. Average borrowed funds decreased $34.3 million, or 39.9%, to $51.6 million for the third quarter of 2020 from $85.9 million for the same quarter of 2019. The reduction in interest expense was slightly offset by a decrease in tax-equivalent interest income of $72 thousand, or 0.6%, to $11.5 million for the three months ended September 30, 2020 from $11.6 million for the same period of 2019, as a 74 basis point decrease in the tax-equivalent yield on earning assets was almost entirely offset by a $224.7 million, or 20.4%, increase in average earning assets. Accounting for the majority of the decrease was an 82 basis point decrease in the tax-equivalent yield on the loan portfolio to 3.85% for the three months ended September 30, 2020 from 4.67% for the same three months of 2019. With regard to earning asset volumes, average earning assets increased $224.7 million, or 20.4%, to $1.326 billion for the three months ended September 30, 2020 from $1.101 billion for the same three months of 2019. The origination of $118.6 million in PPP loans was the predominant factor causing an increase in average loans of $133.3 million, or 16.3%, to $952.9 million for the third quarter of 2020 from $819.6 million for the same quarter of 2019. Additionally, comparing the third quarters of 2020 and 2019, average securities and average interest-bearing deposits in other banks increased $30.8 million, or 11.4%, and $60.6 million, or 605.5%, respectively. On a linked quarter basis, FNCB's tax-equivalent net interest margin contracted 8 basis points to 3.04% for the third quarter of 2020 from 3.12% for the second quarter, and 28 basis points compared to 3.32% for the third quarter of 2019.

For the nine months ended September 30, 2020, tax-equivalent net interest income increased $1.9 million, or 6.9%, to $29.2 million from $27.3 million for the same nine months of 2019. Similarly, the improvement in tax-equivalent net interest income comparing the year-to-date period ended September 30, 2020 and 2019 was due to a $2.6 million, or 34.0%, reduction in interest expense, partially offset by a $699 thousand, or 2.0%, decrease in tax-equivalent interest income. The decrease in interest expense for the year-to-date period reflected decreases in funding costs due to lower market rates, coupled with changes in volumes of average interest-bearing liabilities. FNCB's total cost of funds decreased 39 basis points to 0.72% for the nine months ended September 30, 2020 from 1.11% for the same period of 2019. Specifically, comparing the nine months ended September 30, 2020 and 2019, reductions in rates paid on FNCB's deposit products led to a 33 basis point decrease in the cost of interest-bearing deposits, while the cost of borrowed funds declined 128 basis points. For the nine months ended September 30, 2020, interest-bearing liabilities averaged $937.1 million, an increase of $21.8 million, or 2.4%, from $915.3 million for the same nine-month period of 2019. FNCB experienced a migration of maturing, higher-costing time deposits into lower-costing non-maturity deposit products. Specifically, average balances of higher-costing time deposits decreased $57.9 million, or 22.8% comparing the nine months ended September 30, 2020 and 2019. Volumes of average interest-bearing demand deposits and average savings deposits increased by $73.5 million and $6.7 million, respectively, comparing the nine months ended September 30, 2020 and 2019. The $699 thousand decrease in year-to-date tax-equivalent interest income largely reflected 44 basis point reduction in the tax-equivalent yield on average earning assets to 3.70% in 2020 from 4.14% in 2019. The effect on interest income from yield decline was almost entirely offset by a $107.6 million, or 9.6%, increase in average earning assets to $1.231 billion for the nine months ended September 30, 2020, compared to $1.124 billion for the same nine months of 2019.

Specifically, the reduction in market interest rates, coupled with the origination of lower-yielding PPP loans, resulted in a 53 basis point decrease in the tax-equivalent yield on loans to 4.08% for the nine months ended September 30, 2020 from 4.61% for the same nine months of 2019. PPP loans averaged $69.5 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2020, with an average yield of 0.99%. Additionally, yields earned on average interest-bearing deposits in other banks and federal funds sold decreased 174 basis points to 0.09% for the nine months ended September 30, 2020 from 1.83% for the same period of 2019. With regard to the increase in earning asset volumes, comparing the first nine months of 2020 and 2019, average loans increased $75.3 million, or 9.1%, while average securities increased $7.8 million, or 2.8% and average interest-deposits in other banks and federal funds sold increased $24.4 million, or 216.1%. For the nine months ended September 30, 2020, FNCB's tax-equivalent net interest margin compressed 8 basis points to 3.16% compared to 3.24% for the same period of 2019.

Non-interest income increased significantly for the third quarter and year-to-date periods, which was primarily due to increases in net gains on equity securities, net gains on the sale of mortgage loans held for sale and net gains on available-for-sale debt securities. Also contributing to the increase in non-interest income for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2020 were increases in loan referral fees and deposit service charges. Non-interest income increased $1.1 million, or 62.2%, to $2.9 million for the three months ended September 30, 2020 from $1.8 million for the same three months of 2019. Net gains on equity securities increased $841 thousand to $846 thousand for the third quarter of 2020 compared to $5 thousand for the same quarter of 2019. FNCB realized a gain of $1.1 million on the conversion of an equity security of a bank holding company that was part of a merger and acquisition completed in the third quarter of 2020. Partially offsetting this gain was a net unrealized loss on equity securities held of $287 thousand. FNCB realized net gains on the sale of mortgage loans of $186 thousand for the three months ended September 30, 2020, a $117 thousand or 169.6%, increase compared to $69 thousand in net gains realized for the same three-month period of 2019. Net gains on the sales of available-for-sale securities increased $54 thousand, or 14.2%, to $433 thousand for the third quarter of 2020 compared to $379 thousand for the same quarter of 2019. Additionally loan referral fees and deposit services charges increased $22 thousand, or 40.7%, and $47 thousand, or 5.9%, respectively, comparing the three months ended September 30, 2020 and 2019. For the nine months ended September 30, 2020, non-interest income increased $2.3 million, or 45.5%, to $7.2 million from $4.9 million for the same period of 2019. 

Non-interest expense increased $514 thousand, or 7.0%, to $7.8 million for the three months ended September 30, 2020 from $7.3 million for the three months ended September 30, 2019. The increase primarily reflected increases in other operating expenses, regulatory assessments, professional fees and bank shares tax, partially offset by a reduction in salaries and benefits. Other operating expenses in the third quarter increased $288 thousand, or 35.3%, to $1.1 million in 2020 from $815 thousand in 2019. The increase was largely due to $399 thousand in FHLB prepayment penalties paid in the third quarter of 2020 related to the decision to use excess liquidity to prepay high-costing FHLB term advances. Comparing the three months ended September 30, 2020 and 2019, regulatory assessments increased $102 thousand, or 485.7%, professional fees increased $90 thousand, or 47.6%, and bank shares tax increased $58 thousand or 28.3%. The increase in regulatory assessments reflected the full utilization of the FDIC's Small Bank Assessment Credit during the second quarter of 2020, coupled with an increase in FNCB's assessment base due to balance sheet growth. The increase in professional fees reflected the timing of certain services performed coupled with a contract renegotiation credit received in the third quarter of 2019, while the increase in bank shares tax was due to the increase in FNCB Bank's capital. Slightly offsetting these increases, was a $76 thousand, or 1.9% decrease in salaries and employee benefits, due primarily to reduction in staff. For the nine months ended September 30, 2020, non-interest expense decreased $404 thousand, or 1.8%, to $21.5 million compared to $21.9 million for the same nine-month period of 2019, primarily due to the decline in salaries and employee benefits, data processing expenses, other operating expenses and professional fees. For the nine months ended September 30, 2020, FNCB incurred COVID-19 related costs, including stay-at-home pay, computer-related equipment to enable employees to work remotely, cleaning and sanitizing facilities and safety supplies of $199 thousand which is included in non-interest expense. The increases in net interest income and non-interest income, coupled with the reduction in non-interest expense, resulted in an improvement in FNCB's efficiency ratio year over year to 66.66% for the third quarter of 2020 from 69.20% for the same quarter of 2019.

Asset Quality

FNCB's asset quality improved steadily during 2020 as total non-performing loans decreased $2.9 million, or 32.0%, to $6.2 million, or 0.64% of total loans, at September 30, 2020 from $9.1 million, or 1.10% of total loans, at December 31, 2019. The improvement was attributable to the return of two large commercial loan relationships that returned to accrual status. On a linked quarter basis, non-performing loans decreased $564 thousand, or 8.4%, from $6.7 million, or 0.71% of total loans, at June 30, 2020. FNCB’s loan delinquency rate (total delinquent loans as a percentage of total loans) was 0.81% at September 30, 2020 compared to 1.46% at December 31, 2019 and 1.16% at September 30, 2019. FNCB recorded net recoveries of $1.2 million for the third quarter of 2020 due to large recoveries received on two previously charged-off commercial loans. Annualized net loans charged off (recovered), as a percentage of average loans, was (0.12%) for the three months ended September 30, 2020 compared to 0.03% for the same three months of 2019. Despite receipt of the large recoveries and the overall improvement in asset quality metrics, FNCB recorded provisions for loan and lease losses of $74 thousand and $2.1 million, respectively, for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2020. The increase in credit provisioning in 2020 was directly related to economic disruption and uncertainty caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. The allowance for loan and lease losses was $12.3 million, or 1.28% of total loans at September 30, 2020, compared to $8.9 million, or 1.08% of total loans at December 31, 2019 and $9.3 million, or 1.11%, at September 30, 2019. FNCB had provided short-term, COVID-19 related payment deferments for 916 loans with 860 of those loans having an aggregate recorded investment of $173.6 million, or 18.0% of gross loans, as of September 30, 2020. Additionally, FNCB provided a second deferral to 71 loans with an aggregate recorded investment of $21.4 million, or 2.2% of gross loans, of which 16 loans with an aggregate balance of $8.0 million, or 0.8% of gross loans, were still under deferral as of September 30, 2020.

Financial Condition

Total assets increased $239.7 million, or 19.9%, to $1.443 billion at September 30, 2020 from $1.204 billion at December 31, 2019. The change in total assets primarily reflected increases in net loans, available-for-sale debt securities and cash and cash equivalents. Net loans increased $128.4 million, or 15.7%, to $947.9 million at September 30, 2020 from $819.5 million at December 31, 2019. Excluding the $118.6 million in PPP loans outstanding at September 30, 2020, net loans increased $9.8 million, or 1.2%, from December 31, 2019. Cash and cash equivalents increased $70.4 million, or 203.8%, to $105.0 million at September 30, 2020 from $34.6 million at December 31, 2019. Also contributing to the balance sheet expansion was a $48.6 million, or 17.8%, increase in available-for-sale debt securities to $321.4 million at September 30, 2020 from $272.8 million at December 31, 2019. FNCB experienced unprecedented deposit demand during the first nine months of 2020 as total deposits increased $270.5 million, or 27.0%, to $1.272 billion at September 30, 2020 from $1.002 billion at December 31, 2019. FNCB used excess liquidity to repay FHLB of Pittsburgh advances. As a result, total borrowed funds decreased $46.9 million, or 82.0%, to $10.3 million at September 30, 2020 from $57.2 million at December 31, 2019. FNCB had no term or overnight borrowings through the FHLB of Pittsburgh outstanding as of September 30, 2020.

Total shareholders’ equity increased $16.4 million, or 12.3%, to $150.0 million at September 30, 2020 from $133.6 million at December 31, 2019. Contributing to the increase in capital was net income for the nine months ended September 30, 2020 of $10.2 million and a $9.1 million increase in accumulated other comprehensive income related primarily to appreciation in the fair value of FNCB’s available-for-sale debt securities, net of deferred taxes. Partially offsetting these increases were dividends declared and paid of $3.3 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2020. FNCB's tangible book value per share improved $0.79 to $7.41 per share at September 30, 2020 from $6.62 per share at December 31, 2019. FNCB Bank's total risk-based capital and Tier 1 leverage ratios were 16.09% and 10.17% at September 30, 2020, respectively, compared to 14.77% and 10.36% at December 31, 2019, respectively.
