The net interest margin increased 1 basis point to 3.53 percent for the three months ended September 30, 2021 from 3.52 percent for the three months ended June 30, 2021.

NON-INTEREST INCOME

Total non-interest income for the quarter ended September 30, 2021 decreased $0.3 million to $5.6 million from $5.9 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2021. The decrease was primarily driven by a decrease of $0.4 million in deposit fees and a decrease of $0.1 million in loan fees, partially offset by an increase of $0.2 million in loan level derivative income, net.

PROVISION FOR CREDIT LOSSES

The Company recorded a negative provision for credit losses of $3.1 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2021, compared to a negative provision for credit losses of $3.3 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2021. Total net charge-offs for the third quarter of 2021 were $1.3 million compared to $0.6 million in the second quarter of 2021. The increase was primarily driven by an increase in charge-offs on equipment financing and commercial loans for $0.2 million and $0.2 million, respectively, along with a decrease in recoveries on equipment financing and home equity loans for $0.2 million and $0.1 million, respectively. The ratio of net loan and lease charge-offs to average loans and leases on an annualized basis increased to 7 basis points for the third quarter of 2021 from 3 basis points for the second quarter of 2021.

The allowance for loan and lease losses represented 1.48 percent of total loans and leases at September 30, 2021, compared to 1.52 percent at June 30, 2021, and 1.62 percent at September 30, 2020.

ASSET QUALITY

The ratio of nonperforming loans and leases to total loans and leases was 0.52 percent at September 30, 2021, an increase from 0.49 percent at June 30, 2021. Total nonaccrual loans and leases increased $1.7 million to $35.9 million at September 30, 2021 from $34.2 million at June 30, 2021. The ratio of nonperforming assets to total assets was 0.44 percent at September 30, 2021, an increase from 0.41 percent at June 30, 2021. Total nonperforming assets increased $1.9 million to $36.5 million at September 30, 2021 from $34.6 million at June 30, 2021.

From March 1, 2020 through the earlier of January 1, 2022 or 60 days after the termination date of the national emergency declared by the President on March 13, 2020 concerning the COVID-19 outbreak, a financial institution may elect to suspend the requirements under accounting principles generally accepted in the U.S. for loan modifications related to the COVID-19 pandemic that would otherwise be categorized as a troubled debt restructured, including impairment accounting. This troubled debt restructuring relief applies for the term of the loan modification that occurs during the applicable period for a loan that was not more than 30 days past due as of December 31, 2019. Financial institutions are required to maintain records of the volume of loans involved in modifications to which troubled debt restructuring relief is applicable. As of September 30, 2021, approximately 94 percent of loans granted an initial loan payment deferral have returned to payment status and 77 credits totaling $55.7 million, or 0.8 percent of total loans outstanding, are operating under modified terms.

NON-INTEREST EXPENSE

Non-interest expense for the quarter ended September 30, 2021 increased $2.9 million to $40.9 million from $38.0 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2021. The increase was primarily driven by an increase of $2.0 million in compensation and employee benefits expense due to a bonus compensation adjustment and higher retirement plan expense in the third quarter, and an increase of $1.5 million in other non-interest expense due to a $2.1 million gain on sale of other real estate owned in the second quarter, partially offset by a decrease of $0.3 million in occupancy expense, a decrease of $0.1 million in equipment and data processing expense, and a decrease of $0.2 million in professional services expense.

PROVISION FOR INCOME TAXES

The effective tax rate was 25.0 percent and 25.1 percent for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2021 compared to 25.4 percent for the three months ended June 30, 2021 and 26.2 percent and 23.9 percent for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2020.

RETURNS ON AVERAGE ASSETS AND AVERAGE EQUITY

The annualized return on average assets decreased to 1.38 percent during the third quarter 2021 from 1.48 percent for the second quarter of 2021.

The annualized return on average stockholders' equity decreased to 11.79 percent during the third quarter of 2021 from 13.21 percent for the second quarter of 2021. The annualized return on average tangible stockholders’ equity decreased to 14.15 percent for the third quarter of 2021 from 15.92 percent for the second quarter of 2021.
