Share:

PHILADELPHIA, Feb. 04, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Beneficial Bancorp, Inc. ("Beneficial") (NASDAQ: BNCL), the parent company of Beneficial Bank (the "Bank"), today announced its financial results for the quarter and year ended December 31, 2015.  Beneficial recorded net income of $4.8 million and $22.9 million, or $0.06 and $0.29 per diluted share, for the quarter and year ended December 31, 2015, respectively, compared to net income of $4.5 million and $18.0 million, or $0.06 and $0.22 per diluted share, for the quarter and year ended December 31, 2014, respectively.  The increase in net income for year ended December 31, 2015 compared to the same period a year ago was primarily due to an increase in net interest income as a result of deploying a portion of the proceeds from the Bank's second step conversion, which was completed in January 2015, improving asset quality which resulted in lower provisions for loan losses, and continued management of expense levels.

Highlights for the quarter and year ended December 31, 2015 are as follows:

  • Net income increased $4.9 million, or 27.0%, to $22.9 million for the year ended December 31, 2015 compared to the same period in 2014.
     
  • Net interest income increased $6.8 million, or 5.8%, to $124.2 million for the year ended December 31, 2015 compared to $117.4 million for the same period in 2014 primarily due to the deployment of the second step conversion proceeds into the loan portfolio and lower deposit and borrowing costs.



  • Our net interest margin remained stable at 2.84% for the fourth quarter of 2015, as compared to 2.82% for the third quarter of 2015 and 2.80% for the year ended December 31, 2015, as compared to 2.82% for the year ended December 31, 2014.
     
  • For the year ended December 31, 2015, our loan portfolio increased $519.7 million, or 21.5%, primarily due to purchases of multi-family and residential loans, as well as organic growth primarily in our commercial loan portfolio.
     
  • Net charge-offs decreased $3.6 million, or 70.1%, to $1.6 million during the year ended December 31, 2015 compared to $5.2 million during the year ended December 31, 2014.  Our ratio of non-performing loans to total assets, excluding government guaranteed student loans, remained consistent at 0.33% at December 31, 2015 compared to 0.34% at December 31, 2014.
     
  • Consistent asset quality and low net loan charge-offs during 2015 resulted in a $3.6 million reduction of the provision for loan losses during the year ended December 31, 2015.  Our allowance for loan losses totaled $45.5 million, or 1.55% of total loans and 120.79% of non-performing loans at December 31, 2015, compared to $50.7 million, or 2.09% of total loans and 126.92% of non-performing loans, at December 31, 2014.
     
  • Core deposits increased $107.4 million, or 4.0%, to $2.8 billion at December 31, 2015 compared to December 31, 2014, excluding the second-step conversion proceeds, despite $46.8 million in planned decreases in higher-cost, non-relationship-based municipal accounts during the year ended December 31, 2015.    
     
  • Our loans-to-deposits ratio increased to 85% at December 31, 2015 from 71% at December 31, 2014 (excluding second step conversion proceeds) which helped stabilize net interest margin and improve profitability.
     
  • Following the second-step conversion, our capital levels increased and continue to remain strong with tangible capital to tangible assets totaling 21.04% at December 31, 2015 compared to 10.44% at December 31, 2014.
     
  • Tangible book value per share totaled $11.93 at December 31, 2015.
     
  • On October 21, 2015, Beneficial entered into a Stock Purchase Agreement to acquire Conestoga Bancorp, Inc.'s ownership interest in Conestoga Bank.  On January 15, 2016 and January 19, 2016, Beneficial received notice from the Pennsylvania Department of Banking and Securities and the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation, respectively, of their approval of Beneficial's acquisition of Conestoga Bank and merger of Conestoga Bank with and into the Bank.  Beneficial anticipates closing the acquisition in April 2016.
     
  • On January 13, 2016, Beneficial announced that it adopted a stock repurchase program for up to 10% of its outstanding common stock, or 8,291,859 shares.  This is Beneficial's first stock repurchase program since completing its mutual-to-stock conversion and related stock offering in January 2015.

  
"We are pleased with our performance during the year," said Gerard Cuddy, Beneficial's President and CEO.  "The deployment of the second step conversion proceeds into the loan portfolio has improved our balance sheet mix and increased our net interest income levels.  Our lending teams have been able to organically grow our loan portfolio and we continue to increase our core deposits in our markets.  We have made progress improving our earnings during the year through our growth and tight management of expenses while maintaining strong asset quality metrics.  Our focus remains on employee engagement, a superior customer experience, prudent capital management and organic growth to continue to improve the financial performance of our organization." 

Balance Sheet
Total assets increased $75.2 million, or 1.6%, to $4.83 billion at December 31, 2015 compared to $4.75 billion at December 31, 2014.  Cash and cash equivalents decreased $300.1 million to $233.9 million at December 31, 2015 from $534.0 million at December 31, 2014.  The decrease in cash and cash equivalents was primarily driven by the deployment of a portion of the second step conversion proceeds through participations in portfolios of multi-family loans and purchases of residential real estate loans during the year as well as organic loan growth.

Investments decreased $134.2 million, or 9.0%, to $1.36 billion at December 31, 2015 compared to $1.49 billion at December 31, 2014, as we continued to focus on improving our balance sheet mix by reducing the percentage of our assets in cash and investments and growing our loan portfolio.  We continue to focus on maintaining a high quality investment portfolio that provides a steady stream of cash flows both in the current and in rising interest rate environments.

Loans increased $519.7 million, or 21.5%, to $2.94 billion at December 31, 2015 from $2.42 billion at December 31, 2014.  The increase in loans was primarily due to $312.2 million of participations in portfolios of multi-family loans and the purchase of $43.9 million of residential real estate loans, which represented 14.7% of the year-to-date increase. The remaining increase of 6.8% was due to organic growth in our commercial real estate, commercial construction, and commercial business loans.

Deposits decreased $427.8 million, or 11.0%, to $3.45 billion at December 31, 2015 from $3.88 billion at December 31, 2014.  Deposits at December 31, 2014 included $482.1 million of subscription funds held in deposit accounts in connection with the second-step conversion offering that were reclassified into stockholders' equity in the first quarter of 2015. Excluding the $482.1 million of subscription funds, deposits increased $54.3 million during the year ended December 31, 2015. The $54.3 million increase in deposits during the year ended December 31, 2015 was primarily due to increases of $144.5 million and $39.2 million in interest and non-interest bearing checking deposits, respectively, partially offset by a $46.8 million decrease in municipal deposits and a $54.2 million decrease in time deposits, both of which resulted from our planned run-off of higher-cost, non-relationship-based accounts.

Stockholders' equity increased $504.7 million, or 82.6%, to $1.12 billion at December 31, 2015 from $610.9 million at December 31, 2014.  The increase in stockholders' equity was primarily due to net proceeds received in connection with the completion of the second-step conversion during the first quarter of 2015.

Net Interest Income
For the quarter ended December 31, 2015, net interest income was $31.7 million, an increase of $2.5 million, or 8.4%, from the quarter ended December 31, 2014. The increase in net interest income was primarily due to higher interest earning assets as a result of the second-step conversion proceeds. During 2015, these proceeds were primarily utilized to increase the loan portfolio, which resulted in an increase in the average balance of loans.  Net interest income was also positively impacted by a reduction in the average balance of interest bearing liabilities, primarily due to reductions in higher-cost time deposits and borrowings.  The net interest margin totaled 2.84% for the quarter ended December 31, 2015 as compared to 2.79% for the same period in 2014. The increase in the net interest margin for the quarter ended December 31, 2015 was primarily due to a change in the mix of the interest earning assets from lower yielding investment securities into higher yielding loans. The continued low interest rate environment will put pressure on the net interest margin in future periods but we are focused on growing our loan portfolio and continuing to improve our balance sheet mix to help stabilize our net interest margin.

For the year ended December 31, 2015, net interest income was $124.2 million, an increase of $6.8 million, or 5.8%, from the year ended December 31, 2014. The increase in net interest income was primarily due to higher interest earning assets as a result of the second-step conversion proceeds. During 2015, these proceeds were utilized to increase the loan portfolio, which resulted in an increase in the average balance of loans.  Net interest income was also positively impacted by a reduction in the average balance of interest bearing liabilities, primarily due to a $129.4 million decrease in the average balance of municipal deposits and a $50.1 million decrease in the average balance of borrowings.  Our net interest margin remained relatively stable at 2.80% for the year ended December 31, 2015 compared to 2.82% for the year ended December 31, 2014.

Non-interest Income
For the quarter ended December 31, 2015 non-interest income totaled $5.7 million compared to $5.6 million for the same period in 2014.  During the quarter ended December 31, 2015, we experienced a $149 thousand decrease in income on other life insurance policies partially offset by a $179 thousand increase in limited partnership income.

For the year ended December 31, 2015, non-interest income totaled $24.3 million, a decrease of $499 thousand, or 2.0%, from the year ended December 31, 2014. The decrease was primarily due to a $1.6 million net gain recorded during the year ended December 31, 2014 on the sale of non-performing commercial loans held for sale and a $640 thousand decrease in the net gain on the sale of investment securities.  These decreases were partially offset by an increase of $1.6 million in limited partnership income and a $562 thousand increase in automated teller machine (ATM) fees during the year ended December 31, 2015.

Non-interest Expense
For the quarter ended December 31, 2015, non-interest expense totaled $29.7 million, an increase of $951 thousand, or 3.3%, from the quarter ended December 31, 2014.  The increase in non-interest expense was primarily driven by $753 thousand of merger costs recorded in the fourth quarter of 2015 associated with the pending acquisition of Conestoga Bank, partially offset by a $441 thousand decrease in debit card rewards expense due to changes in the program parameters.

For the year ended December 31, 2015, non-interest expense remained relatively consistent at $118.5 million, an increase of $237 thousand, or 0.2%, from the year ended December 31, 2014. The slight increase in non-interest expense was primarily driven by a $2.7 million increase in salaries and employee benefits due to merit increases and other retirement benefits, a $1.0 million increase in marketing expenses due to current year initiatives to continue rebranding and drive future growth and $753 thousand of merger costs recorded in the fourth quarter of 2015 associated with the pending acquisition of Conestoga Bank.  These increases were partially offset by a $1.2 million decrease in occupancy expense related to our headquarters move in the first quarter of 2014, a $1.5 million decrease in debit card rewards expense due to changes in the program parameters, a $708 thousand decrease in FDIC insurance expense due to lower assessments, and a $723 thousand decrease in classified loan and other real estate owned related expenses.

Income Taxes
For the quarter ended December 31, 2015, we recorded a provision for income taxes of $2.9 million, reflecting an effective tax rate of 38.0%, compared to a provision for income taxes of $1.7 million, reflecting an effective tax rate of 27.2%, for the quarter ended December 31, 2014.  For the year ended December 31, 2015, we recorded a provision for income taxes of $10.7 million, reflecting an effective tax rate of 31.9%, compared to a provision for income taxes of $5.7 million, reflecting an effective tax rate of 24.1%, for the year ended December 31, 2014. The increase in income tax expense and the effective tax rate during these periods is due to increased profitability levels and a higher ratio of taxable income compared to tax exempt income for the quarter and year ended December 31, 2015 as compared to the same periods in 2014.  The effective tax rates differ from the statutory rate of 35% principally because of tax-exempt investments, non-taxable income related to bank-owned life insurance and tax credits received on affordable housing partnerships. These tax credits relate to investments maintained by the Bank as a limited partner in partnerships that sponsor affordable housing projects utilizing low-income housing credits pursuant to Section 42 of the Internal Revenue Code.

Asset Quality
Asset quality metrics stabilized as non-performing loans, excluding government guaranteed student loans, remained consistent at $14.8 million at December 31, 2015, compared to $14.6 million at December 31, 2014.  Our ratio of non-performing loans to total assets, excluding government guaranteed student loans, remained consistent at 0.33% at December 31, 2015 compared to 0.34% at December 31, 2014.

As a result of the stabilization in our asset quality metrics and low net charge-offs recorded during 2015, we recorded a $3.6 million reduction of the provision for loan losses during the year ended December 31, 2015 compared to a $200 thousand increase in the provision for loan losses during the same period in 2014.  Net charge-offs decreased $3.6 million, or 70.1%, to $1.6 million, or 0.06% of total loans, for the year ended December 31, 2015 compared to $5.2 million, or 0.21% of total loans, for the year ended December 31, 2014.

At December 31, 2015, the Bank's allowance for loan losses totaled $45.5 million, or 1.55% of total loans, compared to $50.7 million, or 2.09% of total loans, at December 31, 2014.
