Suffolk Bancorp Reports Second Quarter 2016 Results

Share:
RIVERHEAD, N.Y.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--

Suffolk Bancorp (the "Company") (NYSE: SCNB), parent company of Suffolk County National Bank (the "Bank"), today reported net income of $5.8 million, or $0.48 per diluted common share, for the second quarter of 2016 compared to $5.1 million, or $0.43 per diluted common share, a year ago. For the six months ended June 30, 2016, the Company recorded net income of $10.6 million, or $0.89 per diluted common share, versus $9.1 million, or $0.77 per diluted common share for the comparable 2015 year-to-date period.

The 13.0% increase in second quarter 2016 earnings versus the comparable 2015 period resulted principally from a $1.2 million increase in net interest income coupled with a $191 thousand increase in non-interest income. Partially offsetting these improvements was a $145 thousand increase in total operating expenses and a higher effective tax rate (27.2% versus 23.6%) in 2016 when compared to the second quarter of 2015. The Company did not record a provision for loan losses in either period.

President & CEO Howard C. Bluver stated: "I am very pleased to report an outstanding second quarter. While the big news during the quarter was the announcement of a definitive merger agreement with People's United Financial, it is gratifying to see that our continuing Company-wide focus on high quality execution resulted in strong financial performance across the board. We look forward to leveraging the strengths of our combined institutions to create additional value for all of our current and future stakeholders.

"First, our deposit businesses had a very strong second quarter. Total deposits grew approximately $79 million during the quarter, from $1.87 billion at March 31, 2016 to $1.95 billion at June 30, 2016, a 4.2% increase. Total deposits at June 30, 2016 increased 13.4% from the comparable quarter a year ago. However, the truly remarkable part of this growth story is that 92% of the second quarter's deposit growth came from increases in non-interest bearing demand deposits, which grew approximately $72 million during the quarter, from $791 million at March 31, 2016 to $863 million at June 30, 2016, a 9.2% increase. Total demand deposits increased 12.6% 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 our expansion markets in Nassau County and New York City as the offices we opened in those markets over the last three years continue to mature.

"The quarterly results on the deposit side support our firmly held view that the core deposit franchise we have built over 126 years is unique in our marketplace and gives us a significant competitive advantage. At the end of the second quarter, 44% of our total deposits were demand deposits, resulting in an extraordinarily low cost of funds of 20 basis points and an attractive net interest margin and core net interest margin of 3.87% and 3.86%, respectively. In addition, core deposits, consisting of demand, N.O.W., savings and money market funds, represented 88% of total deposits at June 30, 2016. Our laser-like 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 benefitted from throughout all interest rate cycles over many decades. Our community-oriented culture and devotion to the highest levels of customer service also align perfectly with People's United.

"Second, our lending businesses continue to perform well and are delivering high quality loan growth. While our total loan portfolio decreased $18.2 million on a linked-quarter basis, that was solely due to the fact that we sold approximately $48 million in portfolio multifamily loans during the quarter, generating a net gain of $457 thousand. Without such sales, linked-quarter growth in total loans would have been approximately $30 million, an increase of 1.7%. As we have previously articulated, the robust market for the kind of high quality multifamily loans we have originated provides us with the flexibility to periodically complete these types of strategic sales. This allows us to generate non-interest income, protect our net interest margin and address market and regulatory concerns regarding commercial real estate loan concentration levels. Going forward, we do not anticipate any additional loan sales this year. Notwithstanding the loan sales completed this quarter, total loans at June 30, 2016 were $253 million higher compared to June 30, 2015, representing a 17.2% year over year increase.

"I am also pleased to report that efforts to further diversify our loan portfolio are beginning to bear fruit. In this regard, our commercial and industrial ("C&I") portfolio increased approximately $21 million on a linked-quarter basis, an increase of 10.6%. We expect this trend to continue, as several relationship managers we brought on in the last few months with experience in C&I lending continue to build their books of business. In addition, with respect to commercial real estate lending, we have spent the last few months implementing enhanced risk management processes in order to remain compliant with applicable regulatory guidance. As a result, we anticipate re-entering certain commercial real estate markets that we backed away from earlier this year, although we have no current plans to re-enter the multifamily lending markets in New York City.

"Third, credit quality continues to be strong in all categories. Total non-accrual loans at June 30, 2016 were $6.9 million, or 0.40% of total loans, compared to $7.0 million, or 0.40% of total loans, at March 31, 2016. All other key credit metrics remain solid and reflect our steadfast commitment to a strong and highly disciplined credit culture. Early delinquencies (30-89 days past due), which we manage aggressively as a harbinger of future credit issues, remain extremely low at $1.4 million, or 0.08% of total loans, at June 30, 2016. We also had net recoveries this quarter of $35 thousand. Given the continuous improvement we have seen in our credit profile, we believe we are well reserved. Our allowance for loan losses at June 30, 2016 was $21 million, or 1.21% of total loans and 304% of total non-accrual loans.

"Finally, we continue to be vigilant in controlling operating expenses and improving our efficiency. Total operating expenses in the second quarter were $13.3 million, which is only slightly higher than the $13.2 million in total operating expenses incurred in both the first quarter this year and the comparable period in 2015, notwithstanding the significant increase in revenue experienced this quarter compared to both prior periods. This improvement in operating leverage translated into an improvement in our operating efficiency ratio during the second quarter to 59.8%, from 61.4% in the first quarter and 63.2% in the comparable quarter a year ago. We also generated in the second quarter an ROA of 1.05% and an ROE of 11.23%. We have proven our ability to balance the need for investment to generate revenue with expense saves in other areas."

Earnings Summary for the Quarter Ended June 30, 2016

The Company recorded net income of $5.8 million during the second quarter of 2016 versus $5.1 million in the comparable quarter a year ago. The 13.0% improvement in second quarter 2016 net income resulted from a $1.2 million increase in net interest income and growth in non-interest income of $191 thousand, largely the result of a $457 thousand net gain on the sales of portfolio loans recorded in 2016. Partially offsetting these positive factors was a $145 thousand increase in total operating expenses and an increase in the effective tax rate to 27.2% in 2016 from 23.6% a year ago. The Company did not record a provision for loan losses in either the second quarter of 2016 or 2015.

The $1.2 million or 6.7% improvement in second quarter 2016 net interest income resulted from a $271 million (15.1%) increase in average total interest-earning assets. Partially offsetting the earning asset growth was a 33 basis point decline in the Company's net interest margin to 3.87% in 2016 from 4.20% in 2015. The Company's second quarter 2016 average total interest-earning asset yield was 4.07% versus 4.37% in the comparable 2015 quarterly period. The decrease in the interest-earning asset yield in 2016 resulted from a 38 basis point decline in the average loan yield to 4.19% in 2016 principally due to the receipt of $967 thousand in net non-accrual interest in 2015 versus $75 thousand in 2016. Adjusting for the impact of net non-accrual interest received in each period, the Company's core net interest margin was 3.86% in the second quarter of 2016 versus 3.98% in the comparable 2015 period. The Company's average balance sheet mix continued to improve as average loans increased by $336 million (23.7%) versus second quarter 2015. The average securities portfolio decreased by $79 million to $269 million in the second quarter of 2016 versus the comparable 2015 period. The average yield on the investment portfolio was 3.63% in 2016 versus 3.77% a year ago. At June 30, 2016, mortgage-backed securities, at 40%, made up the largest component of the Company's investment portfolio. The available for sale securities portfolio had an unrealized pre-tax gain of $6.1 million and the entire securities portfolio had an estimated weighted average life of 3.3 years at June 30, 2016.

The Company's average cost of total interest-bearing liabilities increased by five basis points to 0.35% in the second quarter of 2016 versus 0.30% in the comparable 2015 quarter. The Company's total cost of funds, among the lowest in the industry, increased to 0.20% in the second quarter of 2016 versus 0.18% a year ago. Average core deposits increased $253 million (17.8%) to $1.7 billion during the second quarter of 2016 versus the second quarter of 2015, with average demand deposits representing 43% of second quarter 2016 average total deposits. Total deposits increased by $231 million or 13.4% to $1.9 billion at June 30, 2016 versus June 30, 2015. Core deposit balances, which represented 88% of total deposits at June 30, 2016, grew by $247 million or 16.7% during the same period. Average borrowings increased $17 million (23.8%) during the second quarter of 2016 compared to 2015 and were used, in part, to fund the growth in the Company's loan portfolio. Total borrowings at June 30, 2016 were $15 million versus $65 million at the comparable 2015 date.

Non-interest income increased by $191 thousand in the second quarter of 2016 versus the comparable 2015 period. This improvement was principally due to an increase in net gain on the sales of portfolio loans (up $457 thousand) in the second quarter of 2016. Partially offsetting this improvement were reductions in service charges on deposits (down $209 thousand) and net gain on the sale of securities available for sale (down $142 thousand). The net gain on the sale of portfolio loans in the second quarter of 2016 resulted from two sales of performing multifamily loans in that period. No portfolio loans were sold in the second quarter of 2015.

Total operating expenses increased by $145 thousand or 1.1% in the second quarter of 2016 versus 2015 principally the result of growth in other operating expenses of $349 thousand, consulting and professional services expense of $75 thousand and equipment expense of $57 thousand. Partially offsetting these increases was a reduction in 2016 data processing costs of $280 thousand versus the comparable 2015 period. The increase in consulting and professional services expense was largely due to a $69 thousand increase in recruitment fees in 2016, while the increase in other operating expenses reflected a $255 thousand increase in expenses associated with loan appraisal and filing fees incurred during the second quarter of 2016. The improvement in data processing costs resulted from lower core systems expenses in 2016. The Company's operating efficiency ratio improved to 59.8% in the second quarter of 2016 from 63.2% a year ago.

The Company did not record a provision for loan losses in the second quarter of 2016 or 2015.

The Company recorded income tax expense of $2.2 million in the second quarter of 2016 resulting in an effective tax rate of 27.2% versus an income tax expense of $1.6 million and an effective tax rate of 23.6% in the comparable period a year ago. The increase in the 2016 effective tax rate resulted from growth in pre-tax income taxed at the 35% federal rate, coupled with a reduction in tax-exempt securities income versus the comparable 2015 period.

Earnings Summary for the Six Months Ended June 30, 2016

The Company recorded net income of $10.6 million during the first six months of 2016 versus $9.1 million in the comparable 2015 period. The improvement in 2016 net income resulted principally from a $3.0 million increase in net interest income in the first half of 2016, partially offset by a $189 thousand increase in total operating expenses and an increase in the Company's effective tax rate in 2016.

The $3.0 million or 8.8% improvement in June year-to-date 2016 net interest income resulted from a $259 million increase in average total interest-earning assets, offset in part by a 26 basis point contraction of the Company's net interest margin to 3.84% in 2016 from 4.10% in 2015. The Company's June year-to-date 2016 average total interest-earning asset yield was 4.05% versus 4.26% in the comparable 2015 year-to-date period. A lower average yield on the Company's loan portfolio in the first half of 2016 versus the comparable 2015 period, down 25 basis points to 4.19%, was the primary driver of the reduction in the interest-earning asset yield. Excluding the impact of net non-accrual interest received in each year-to-date period, the Company's core net interest margin was 3.82% in 2016 versus 3.99% in 2015. The Company's average loan portfolio increased by $317 million (22.6%) versus June year-to-date 2015 while the average securities portfolio decreased by $67 million (19.0%) to $287 million in the same period. The average yield on the investment portfolio was 3.61% in this 2016 period versus 3.79% a year ago.

The Company's average cost of total interest-bearing liabilities increased by eight basis points to 0.36% in the first six months of 2016 versus 0.28% in the comparable 2015 period. The Company's total cost of funds increased by five basis points to 0.22% in the first half of 2016 versus 2015. Average core deposits increased by $248 million to $1.6 billion during the first six months of 2016 versus the comparable 2015 period, with average demand deposits representing 43% of year-to-date 2016 average total deposits. Average total deposits increased by $251 million or 15.5% to $1.9 billion during the first half of 2016 versus 2015. Average core deposit balances represented 88% of average total deposits during the same period. Average borrowings increased by $14 million during the first half of 2016 compared to 2015 and represented 6% of total average funding during the June 2016 year-to-date period.

The Company recorded a provision for loan losses of $250 thousand during the first six months of 2016 and 2015.

Total operating expenses increased by $189 thousand (0.7%) in the first half of 2016 versus 2015 as the result of growth in other operating expenses (up $595 thousand) and consulting and professional services (up $220 thousand), offset in part by a $671 thousand reduction in data processing costs. The Company's operating efficiency ratio improved to 60.5% in the first six months of 2016 from 64.7% a year ago.

The Company recorded income tax expense of $4.1 million in the year-to-date June 2016 period resulting in an effective tax rate of 28.0% versus an income tax expense of $2.8 million and an effective tax rate of 23.6% in the comparable period a year ago.

The allowance for loan losses as a percentage of total non-accrual loans amounted to 304%, 374% and 363% at June 30, 2016, December 31, 2015 and June 30, 2015, respectively. Total accruing loans delinquent 30 days or more amounted to $1.4 million or 0.08% of loans outstanding at June 30, 2016 compared to $1.0 million or 0.06% of loans outstanding at December 31, 2015 and $4.6 million or 0.31% of loans outstanding at June 30, 2015.

Total criticized and classified loans were $25 million at June 30, 2016 versus $21 million at December 31, 2015 and $33 million at June 30, 2015. Criticized loans are those loans that are not classified but require some degree of heightened monitoring. Classified loans were $10 million at June 30, 2016 as compared to $12 million at December 31, 2015 and $18 million at June 30, 2015. The allowance for loan losses as a percentage of total classified loans was 204%, 170% and 114%, respectively, at the same dates.

At June 30, 2016, the Company had $10 million in troubled debt restructurings ("TDRs"), primarily consisting of commercial and industrial loans, commercial real estate loans, residential mortgages and home equity loans totaling $1 million, $3 million, $5 million and $1 million, respectively. The Company had TDRs amounting to $12 million and $13 million at December 31, 2015 and June 30, 2015, respectively.

At June 30, 2016, the Company's allowance for loan losses amounted to $21.0 million or 1.21% of period-end loans outstanding.

The Company recorded net loan recoveries of $35 thousand in the second quarter of 2016 versus net loan charge-offs of $5 thousand in the first quarter of 2016 and net loan recoveries of $726 thousand in the second quarter of 2015. As a percentage of average total loans outstanding, these net amounts represented, on an annualized basis, (0.01%) for the second quarter of 2016, 0.00% for the first quarter of 2016 and (0.21%) for the second quarter of 2015.

The Company held OREO amounting to $650 thousand at June 30 and March 31, 2016 resulting from the addition of one residential property during the first quarter of 2016. The Company held no OREO during the other reported periods.

Capital

Total stockholders' equity was $210 million at June 30, 2016 compared to $197 million at December 31, 2015 and $191 million at June 30, 2015. The increase in stockholders' equity versus June 30, 2015 was due principally to net income recorded during the last twelve months, net of dividends paid. The Company's return on average common stockholders' equity was 11.23% and 10.45% for the three and six month ended June 30, 2016 versus 10.88% and 9.85%, respectively, for the comparable 2015 periods.

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: the ability to obtain regulatory approvals and meet other closing conditions to the merger with People's United, including approval by Suffolk shareholders on the expected terms and schedule, and including the risk that regulatory approvals required for the merger are not obtained or are obtained subject to conditions that are not anticipated; delay in closing the merger; difficulties and delays in integrating the Suffolk business or fully realizing cost savings and other benefits of the merger; business disruption following the merger; increased capital requirements mandated by the Company's regulators, including the individual minimum capital requirements that the OCC established for the Bank; the Bank's temporary limitation on the growth of its commercial real estate ("CRE") portfolio and the potentially adverse impact thereof on the Company's overall business, financial condition and results of operation due to the importance of the Bank's CRE business to the Company's overall business, financial condition and results of operation; any failure by the Bank to comply with the individual minimum capital ratios (including as a result of increases to the Bank's allowance for loan losses), which may result in regulatory enforcement actions; the duration of the Bank's limitation on the growth of its CRE portfolio, and the potentially adverse impact thereof on the Company's overall business, financial condition and results of operation; the cost of compliance and significant amount of time required of management to comply with regulatory requirements; results of changes in law, regulations or regulatory practices; 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; 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 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 less OREO-related expenses by the sum
of fully taxable equivalent ("FTE") net interest income and non-interest income, excluding net gains and losses on sales
of available for sale securities.

(3) 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 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:

 

Core operating expenses:

Total stockholders' equity/total assets (2) 9.46 % 8.81 % 8.91 % 9.34 % 9.42 %
 

(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 at June 30, 2016, 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:

 

Suffolk Bancorp:

Total stockholders' equity $ 210,307 Total assets $ 2,196,375 9.58 %
Less: intangible assets   (2,756 )

Less: intangible assets

  (2,756 )
Tangible common equity $ 207,551   Tangible assets $ 2,193,619   9.46 %

Less: intangible assets   (2,756 ) Less: intangible assets   (2,756 )
Tangible common equity $ 205,044   Tangible assets $ 2,193,226   9.35 %
 

(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.
