RIVERHEAD, N.Y., July 22, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) --  Suffolk Bancorp (the "Company") (NASDAQ: SUBK), parent company of Suffolk County National Bank (the "Bank"), today reported net income of $5.1 million, or $0.43 per diluted common share, for the second quarter of 2015 compared to $3.8 million, or $0.32 per diluted common share, a year ago. For the six months ended June 30, 2015, the Company recorded net income of $9.1 million, or $0.77 per diluted common share, versus $7.5 million, or $0.64 per diluted common share for the comparable 2014 year-to-date period.

The 35.7% increase in second quarter 2015 reported earnings versus the comparable 2014 period resulted from a $2.3 million increase in net interest income and a $250 thousand reduction in the provision for loan losses.  Partially offsetting these improvements was a $628 thousand reduction in non-interest income in 2015. Excluding a second quarter 2015 increase in net non-accrual interest received, a second quarter 2014 gain on the sale of a bank-owned property and a second quarter 2014 expense credit associated with branch consolidation costs previously recorded, core net income increased by 36.3% to $4.4 million in the second quarter of 2015 from $3.2 million in the comparable 2014 period. (See Non-GAAP Disclosure contained herein.)

President and CEO Howard C. Bluver stated: "I am very pleased to report what was truly a phenomenal second quarter. It is gratifying to see our expansion strategies and Company-wide focus on high quality execution result in strong financial performance across the board.

"First, our lending businesses continue to perform exceedingly well and are delivering high quality loan growth. Linked-quarter growth in our total loan portfolio was approximately $94 million, from $1.382 billion at March 31, 2015 to $1.477 billion at June 30, 2015, a 6.8% increase. Total loans at the end of the second quarter represented a 23.5% increase from the comparable quarter a year ago. As the local economy has improved, loan demand has strengthened in both our traditional markets on the east end of Long Island, as well as in our new markets in Nassau County and New York City.

"More significantly, it is clear that our core strategy of recruiting experienced bankers with established customer relationships and locating them in attractive business markets as we expand west is working exactly as envisioned. The loan production offices we have opened during the last three years in Melville, Garden City, and, most recently, Long Island City, are all contributing substantially to our results. We are clearly picking up market share as we expand west into markets with an abundance of the small and middle market businesses that are our lifeblood. As a result, notwithstanding the strong loan growth experienced in the second quarter, our loan pipeline continues to be robust and we remain optimistic about the prospect for continued strong loan growth during the second half of 2015.

"Second, our deposit businesses had an absolutely remarkable second quarter, allowing us to fund all of our quarterly loan production through deposit growth. Total deposits grew approximately $127 million during the quarter, from $1.592 billion at March 31, 2015 to $1.718 billion at June 30, 2015, an 8.0% increase. Total deposits at June 30, 2015 represented a 9.6% increase from the comparable quarter a year ago. Even more impressive, 66% of the second quarter's deposit growth came from increases in non-interest bearing demand deposits, which grew $84 million in the quarter, from $682 million on March 31, 2015 to $766 million on June 30, 2015, a 12.3% increase. Total demand deposits at June 30, 2015 represented a 13.3% increase from the comparable quarter a year ago. We are clearly benefitting from a robust start to the summer season in our traditional markets on the east end of Long Island, including the Hamptons, as well as significant deposit generation coming from new lending customers as we expand west.

"The quarterly results on the deposit side support our firmly held view that the core deposit franchise we have built over 125 years is unique in our marketplace and gives us a significant competitive advantage, particularly in a rising rate environment.  At the end of the second quarter, 45% of our total deposits were demand deposits, resulting in an extraordinarily low cost of funds of 18 basis points and an attractive core net interest margin of 3.99%. In addition, core deposits, consisting of demand, N.O.W., savings and money market accounts, represented 86% of total deposits at June 30, 2015. Our continuing focus on long-term customer relationships, superior service levels and low funding costs is an inherent part of our culture and is something we have benefited from throughout all interest rate cycles over many decades. We continue to maintain an asset sensitive balance sheet so that, over time, we will benefit from positive earnings leverage as interest rates rise and the yields on our assets grow faster than the costs of our deposit liabilities."

Mr. Bluver continued: "Third, credit quality improved dramatically during the second quarter. As we have previously emphasized, a substantial majority of our non-accrual portfolio consists of loans that we affirmatively chose not to include in a series of discounted bulk sales completed in 2012, because we believed such loans were well collateralized and could eventually be resolved at little or no discount. That is exactly what occurred in the second quarter. As a result of the successful workout of several large relationships during the quarter, total non-accrual loans at June 30, 2015 declined to $5.5 million, or 0.37% of total loans, compared to $12.3 million, or 0.89% of total loans, at March 31, 2015. In addition, since these workouts were completed at or near 100 cents on the dollar, we were able to book net recoveries during the quarter of $726 thousand, thereby eliminating the need to take a loan loss provision that otherwise may have been necessary to account for quarterly loan growth. The strategy of working closely with cooperative borrowers who own solid businesses, but who ran into temporary trouble because of events such as Hurricane Sandy, has now been successfully realized.

"All other key credit metrics remain solid and reflect our steadfast commitment to a strong credit culture. Early delinquencies (30-89 days past due), which we manage aggressively as a harbinger of future credit issues, remain well controlled at $4.6 million, or 0.31% of total loans at June 30, 2015. Given the improved credit profile of our loan portfolio, as well as the strengthening economic conditions in our markets, we believe we are well reserved. Our allowance for loan losses at June 30, 2015 was $20.1 million, or 1.36% of total loans and 363% of total non-accrual loans.

"Finally, we continue to be vigilant in controlling operating expenses and improving our efficiency. The expansion strategies that have resulted in strong overall financial results during the last three years require significant investment, particularly in attracting the best lending and credit professionals to drive performance. Nevertheless, we have been successful in finding ways to fund these investments by reducing expenses in other areas. As a prime example, we note that total operating expenses of $13.2 million incurred in the second quarter of 2015 were flat compared to the comparable quarter a year ago, notwithstanding the significant revenue enhancing investments that were funded during the last year, such as costs associated with opening the Long Island City loan production office. This improvement in operating leverage translated into a reduction in our core efficiency ratio during the second quarter to 66.3%, from 70.7% in the comparable quarter in 2014. We have proven our ability to balance the need for investment to generate revenue with expense saves in other areas, and we will continue to do this going forward."

Earnings Summary for the Quarter Ended June 30, 2015

The Company recorded net income of $5.1 million during the second quarter of 2015 versus $3.8 million in the comparable year ago period. The 35.7% improvement in second quarter 2015 net income resulted from a $2.3 million increase in net interest income and a $250 thousand reduction in the provision for loan losses in 2015 versus the comparable 2014 period. Partially offsetting these improvements was a $628 thousand reduction in non-interest income in 2015 versus 2014. The Company's effective tax rate increased to 23.6% in 2015 from 21.7% a year ago.  

The $2.3 million or 14.7% improvement in second quarter 2015 net interest income resulted from a $184 million increase in average total interest-earning assets along with an eight basis point widening of the Company's net interest margin to 4.21% in 2015 from 4.13% in 2014. The Company's second quarter 2015 average total interest-earning asset yield was 4.38% versus 4.29% in the comparable 2014 quarterly period. The improvement in the interest-earning asset yield in 2015 was due in part to the receipt of $967 thousand in interest income on loans previously on non-accrual status.  Adjusting for the impact of net non-accrual interest received in each period, the Company's core net interest margin was 3.99% in the second quarter of 2015 versus 4.05% in the second quarter of 2014.  The Company's average balance sheet mix continued to improve as average loans increased by $269 million (23.5%) versus second quarter 2014 and low-yielding overnight interest-bearing deposits, federal funds sold and securities purchased under agreements to resell declined by $29 million (59.5%) during the same period. Federal funds sold, securities purchased under agreements to resell and interest-bearing deposits represented 1% of average total interest-earning assets in the second quarter of 2015 versus 3% a year ago. The average securities portfolio decreased by $59 million to $348 million in the second quarter of 2015 versus the comparable 2014 period.  The average yield on the investment portfolio was 3.77% in the second quarter of 2015 versus 3.71% a year ago. At June 30, 2015, tax-exempt municipal securities, at 39%, made up the largest component of the Company's investment portfolio. The available for sale securities portfolio had an unrealized pre-tax gain of $3.5 million and the entire securities portfolio had an estimated weighted average life of 4.7 years at June 30, 2015.

The Company's average cost of total interest-bearing liabilities increased by two basis points to 0.30% in the second quarter of 2015 versus 0.28% in the second quarter of 2014. The Company's total cost of funds, among the lowest in the industry, increased nominally to 0.18% in the second quarter of 2015 versus 0.16% a year ago. Average core deposits increased $118 million to $1.4 billion during the second quarter of 2015 versus the comparable 2014 period, with average demand deposits representing 44% of second quarter 2015 average total deposits. Total deposits increased by $150 million or 9.6% to $1.7 billion at June 30, 2015 versus June 30, 2014. Core deposit balances, which represented 86% of total deposits at June 30, 2015, grew by $137 million or 10.2% during the same period. Average borrowings increased $64 million during the second quarter of 2015 compared to 2014 and were used, in part, to fund the growth in the Company's loan portfolio, which increased by $269 million on average during that same period.

A nominal $22 thousand increase in total operating expenses in the second quarter of 2015 versus 2014 was principally the result of a $279 thousand expense credit recorded in 2014 related to prior period branch closures. Excluding this credit, total operating expenses declined by $257 thousand or 1.9% in the second quarter of 2015 versus the comparable 2014 period. The Company's core operating efficiency ratio improved to 66.3% in the second quarter of 2015 from 70.7% a year ago.

Primarily as a result of recording $726 thousand in net recoveries, the Company did not record a provision for loan losses during the second quarter of 2015. The Company recorded a provision for loan losses of $250 thousand in the second quarter of 2014.

Non-interest income declined by $628 thousand or 23.5% in the second quarter of 2015 versus the comparable 2014 period.  This reduction was due to several factors, most notably reductions in fiduciary fees (down $280 thousand), other service charges, commissions and fees (down $212 thousand), service charges on deposits (down $121 thousand) and net gain on sale of premises and equipment (down $110 thousand). Fiduciary fees declined as a result of the Company's decision to exit the wealth management market during the fourth quarter of 2014 through the sale of its wealth management business. Other service charges, commissions and fees were lower than the comparable 2014 period principally due to a reduction in income from the sale of investment products through the Company's branch network. Deposit service charges declined due to a reduction in overdraft fees in 2015. The reduction in net gain on the sale of premises and equipment resulted from a $104 thousand pre-tax gain recorded in 2014 on the sale of a Company-owned parking lot adjacent to the main office. Excluding the impact of the wealth management sale and the gain on the parking lot recorded in 2014, non-interest income declined by $244 thousand or 10.6% in 2015.  Partially offsetting the foregoing reductions in non-interest income was an increase in net gain on the sale of securities available for sale (up $183 thousand).

The Company recorded income tax expense of $1.6 million in the second quarter of 2015 resulting in an effective tax rate of 23.6% versus an income tax expense of $1.0 million and an effective tax rate of 21.7% in the comparable period a year ago.

Earnings Summary for the Six Months Ended June 30, 2015

The Company recorded net income of $9.1 million during the first six months of 2015 versus $7.5 million in the comparable 2014 period.  The improvement in 2015 net income resulted principally from a $3.5 million increase in net interest income in the first half of 2015 coupled with a $250 thousand reduction in the provision for loan losses and a $179 thousand decline in total operating expenses. Partially offsetting these positive factors was a $1.6 million reduction in non-interest income and an increase in the Company's effective tax rate in 2015.

The $3.5 million or 11.3% improvement in June year-to-date 2015 net interest income resulted from a $191 million increase in average total interest-earning assets, offset in part by a six basis point contraction of the Company's net interest margin to 4.11% in 2015 from 4.17% in 2014. The Company's June year-to-date 2015 average total interest-earning asset yield was 4.28% versus 4.33% in the comparable 2014 year-to-date period. A lower average yield on the Company's loan portfolio in the first half of 2015 versus the comparable 2014 period, down 28 basis points to 4.47%, was the primary driver of the reduction in the interest-earning asset yield.  The Company's average balance sheet mix continued to improve as average loans increased by $277 million (24.8%) versus June year-to-date 2014 and low-yielding overnight interest-bearing deposits, federal funds sold and securities purchased under agreements to resell declined by $32 million (58.0%) during the same period. The average securities portfolio decreased by $57 million to $354 million in the first half of 2015 versus the comparable 2014 period.  The average yield on the investment portfolio was 3.79% in the 2015 period versus 3.73% a year ago.

The Company's average cost of total interest-bearing liabilities decreased by one basis point to 0.28% in the first six months of 2015 versus 0.29% in the comparable 2014 period. The Company's total cost of funds was unchanged at 0.17% in the first half of 2015 versus 2014. Average core deposits increased by $99 million to $1.4 billion during the first six months of 2015 versus the comparable 2014 period, with average demand deposits representing 43% of year-to-date 2015 average total deposits. Average total deposits increased by $94 million or 6.2% to $1.6 billion during the first half of 2015 versus 2014. Average core deposit balances represented 86% of average total deposits during the same period. Average borrowings increased by $94 million during the first half of 2015 compared to 2014 and represented 6% of total average funding during the June 2015 year-to-date period.

Largely due to a combination of improved credit metrics coupled with $601 thousand in 2015 year-to-date net recoveries, the Company's provision for loan losses declined by $250 thousand during the first six months of 2015 versus the comparable 2014 period.

Total operating expenses declined by $179 thousand in the first half of 2015 versus 2014 as the result of reductions in several categories, most notably consulting and professional services (down $308 thousand) and employee compensation and benefits (down $227 thousand). Excluding a $449 thousand branch consolidation expense credit recorded in the June 2014 year-to-date period, total operating expenses would have declined by $628 thousand or 2.3% in 2015 when compared to 2014. The Company's core operating efficiency ratio improved to 66.3% in the first six months of 2015 from 71.6% a year ago.

Non-interest income declined by $1.6 million or 28.2% in the June 2015 year-to-date period when compared to 2014.  This reduction was due to several factors, most notably reductions in net gain on sale of premises and equipment (down $752 thousand), fiduciary fees (down $559 thousand), service charges on deposit accounts (down $377 thousand) and other service charges, commissions and fees (down $298 thousand). The reduction in net gain on the sale of premises and equipment resulted from gains recorded in 2014 on the sale of two bank properties. Fiduciary fees declined as a result of the Company's sale of its wealth management business in late 2014. Deposit service charges declined principally due to a reduction in overdraft fees in 2015. Other service charges, commissions and fees were lower than the comparable 2014 period primarily as the result of a reduction in income from the sale of investment products through the Company's branch network. Partially offsetting the foregoing reductions in non-interest income were increases in net gain on the sale of securities available for sale (up $209 thousand) and net gain on the sale of portfolio loans (up $198 thousand).

The Company recorded income tax expense of $2.8 million in the year-to-date June 2015 period resulting in an effective tax rate of 23.6% versus an income tax expense of $2.2 million and an effective tax rate of 22.4% in the comparable period a year ago.

Asset Quality

Classified loans were $18 million at June 30, 2015 as compared to $30 million at December 31, 2014 and $34 million at June 30, 2014. The allowance for loan losses as a percentage of total classified loans was 114%, 64% and 55%, respectively, at the same dates.

At June 30, 2015, the Company had $13 million in troubled debt restructurings ("TDRs"), primarily consisting of commercial and industrial loans, commercial real estate loans and residential mortgages totaling $2 million, $5 million and $4 million, respectively.

The Company held no OREO during any of the reported periods.

Capital

Total stockholders' equity was $191 million at June 30, 2015 compared to $183 million at December 31, 2014 and $180 million at June 30, 2014. The increase in stockholders' equity versus June 30, 2014 was due to net income recorded during the past twelve months, net of dividends paid. The Company's return on average common stockholders' equity was 10.88% and 9.85% for the three and six months ended June 30, 2015 versus 8.55% and 8.68%, respectively, for the comparable 2014 periods.

Safe Harbor Statement Pursuant to the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995

Certain statements contained in this discussion are "forward-looking statements" within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. These can include remarks about the Company, the banking industry, the economy in general, expectations of the business environment in which the Company operates, projections of future performance, and potential future credit experience. These remarks are based upon current management expectations, and may, therefore, involve risks and uncertainties that cannot be predicted or quantified, that are beyond the Company's control and that could cause future results to vary materially from the Company's historical performance or from current expectations. These remarks may be identified by such forward-looking statements as "should," "expect," "believe," "view," "opportunity," "allow," "continues," "reflects," "typically," "usually," "anticipate," or similar statements or variations of such terms. Factors that could affect the Company include particularly, but are not limited to: increased capital requirements mandated by the Company's regulators; the Company's ability to raise capital; competitive factors, including price competition; changes in interest rates; increases or decreases in retail and commercial economic activity in the Company's market area; variations in the ability and propensity of consumers and businesses to borrow, repay, or deposit money, or to use other banking and financial services; results of regulatory examinations or changes in law, regulations or regulatory practices; the Company's ability to attract and retain key management and staff; any failure by the Company to maintain effective internal control over financial reporting; larger-than-expected losses from the sale of assets; and the potential that net charge-offs are higher than expected or for further increases in our provision for loan losses. Further, it could take the Company longer than anticipated to implement its strategic plans to increase revenue and manage non-interest expense, or it may not be possible to implement those plans at all. Finally, new and unanticipated legislation, regulation, or accounting standards may require the Company to change its practices in ways that materially change the results of operations. We have no obligation to update any forward-looking statements to reflect events or circumstances after the date of this document. For more information, see the risk factors described in the Company's Annual Report on Form 10-K and other filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission.

(1) Demand, savings, N.O.W. and money market deposits.        
  
(2) The operating efficiency ratio is calculated by dividing operating expenses, excluding net gains and losses on sales and writedowns of OREO, by the sum of fully taxable equivalent ("FTE") net interest income and non-interest income, excluding net gains and losses on bulk sales of loans and available for sale securities. 
  
(3) The core operating efficiency ratio is calculated by making certain adjustments to the operating efficiency ratio calculation. The core operating efficiency ratio is not required by U.S. GAAP or by applicable bank regulatory requirements, but is a metric used by management to evaluate core operating efficiency. Since there is no authoritative requirement to calculate this ratio, our ratio is not necessarily comparable to similar efficiency measures disclosed or used by other companies in the financial services industry. The core operating efficiency ratio is a non-GAAP financial measure and should be considered in addition to, not as a substitute for or superior to, financial measures determined in accordance with U.S. GAAP. The reconciliation of core FTE net interest income to FTE net interest income is provided elsewhere herein. With respect to the calculation of the actual unaudited core operating efficiency ratio as of the reported periods, the reconciliation of core operating expenses to U.S. GAAP total operating expenses and core non-interest income to U.S. GAAP total non-interest income and the calculation of the core operating efficiency ratio are set forth below:

(1) The ratio of tangible common equity to tangible assets, or TCE ratio, is calculated by dividing total common stockholders' equity by total assets, after reducing both amounts by intangible assets. The TCE ratio is not required by U.S. GAAP or by applicable bank regulatory requirements, but is a metric used by management to evaluate the adequacy of our capital levels. Since there is no authoritative requirement to calculate the TCE ratio, our TCE ratio is not necessarily comparable to similar capital measures disclosed or used by other companies in the financial services industry. Tangible common equity and tangible assets are non-GAAP financial measures and should be considered in addition to, not as a substitute for or superior to, financial measures determined in accordance with U.S. GAAP. With respect to the calculation of the actual unaudited TCE ratios as of June 30, 2015, reconciliations of tangible common equity to U.S. GAAP total common stockholders' equity and tangible assets to U.S. GAAP total assets are set forth below:

Total stockholders' equity$  191,151    Total assets $  1,998,220   9.57%

Tangible common equity$  188,159    Tangible assets $  1,995,228   9.43%

Total stockholders' equity$  188,234    Total assets $  1,997,861   9.42% 
Less: intangible assets   (2,992)   Less: intangible assets   (2,992)   
Tangible common equity$  185,242    Tangible assets $  1,994,869   9.29% 
           
(2) The ratio of total stockholders' equity to total assets is the most comparable U.S. GAAP measure to the non-GAAP tangible common equity ratio presented herein.
