First Capital, Inc. Reports Quarterly Earnings

Share:

CORYDON, Ind., July 23, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- First Capital, Inc. (the "Company") (NASDAQ:  FCAP), the holding company for First Harrison Bank (the "Bank"), today reported net income of $2.4 million or $0.73 per diluted share for the quarter ended June 30, 2020, compared to $2.9 million or $0.86 per diluted share for the quarter ended June 30, 2019.  The decrease was primarily due to a decrease in net interest income after provision for loan losses partially offset by an increase in noninterest income and a decrease in noninterest expense.

Net interest income after provision for loan losses decreased $1.3 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2020 as compared to the same period in 2019.  Interest income decreased $845,000 when comparing the periods due to a decrease in the average tax-equivalent yield on interest-earning assets from 4.35% for the second quarter of 2019 to 3.61% for the second quarter of 2020 partially offset by an increase in the average balance of interest-earning assets from $767.0 million for the second quarter of 2019 to $834.1 million for the second quarter of 2020.  The decrease in the tax-equivalent yield was due to the Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) lowering interest rates due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the Bank originating $45.1 million in loans through the Small Business Administration's Paycheck Protection Program ("PPP") which carry a fixed rate of 1.00%.  Interest expense decreased $87,000 when comparing the periods due to a decrease in the average cost of interest-bearing liabilities from 0.34% for the second quarter of 2019 to 0.27% for the second quarter of 2020.  This was partially offset by an increase in the average balance of interest-bearing liabilities from $573.3 million for the second quarter of 2019 to $607.9 million for the second quarter of 2020.  As a result of the changes in interest-earning assets and interest-bearing liabilities, the tax-equivalent interest rate spread decreased from 4.01% for the quarter ended June 30, 2019 to 3.34% for the same period in 2020. 

Based on management's analysis of the allowance for loan losses, the provision for loan losses increased from $300,000 for the quarter ended June 30, 2019 to $825,000 for the same period in 2020.  The increase in provision for loan losses primarily reflects changes to qualitative factors within the Bank's allowance for loan losses calculation related to uncertainties surrounding COVID-19.   The Bank recognized net charge-offs of $68,000 for the quarter ended June 30, 2020 compared to $30,000 for the same period in 2019. 

Noninterest income increased $552,000 for the quarter ended June 30, 2020 as compared to the same period in 2019.  The second quarter of 2020 included a $223,000 unrealized gain on equity securities compared to a $14,000 unrealized loss on equity securities during the same period in 2019.  Gains on the sale of loans and ATM and debit card fees also increased $432,000 and $147,000, respectively, when comparing the two periods.  This was partially offset by a $194,000 decrease in service charges on deposit accounts. 

Noninterest expense decreased $146,000 for the quarter ended June 30, 2020 as compared to the same period in 2019.  Data processing expense, advertising expense and net loss on foreclosed real estate decreased $114,000, $110,000 and $86,000, respectively, when comparing the two periods partially offset by a $164,000 increase in compensation and benefits expense.

Income tax expense decreased $163,000 for the second quarter of 2020 as compared to the second quarter of 2019 primarily due to an increase in nontaxable income and a decrease in taxable income for the quarter ended June 30, 2020.   As a result, the effective tax rate for the quarter ended June 30, 2020 was 14.2% compared to 16.6% for the same period in 2019.   

For the six months ended June 30, 2020, the Company reported net income of $4.5 million or $1.35 per diluted share compared to net income of $5.0 million or $1.50 per diluted share for the same period in 2019.  

Net interest income after provision for loan losses decreased $1.2 million for the six months ended June 30, 2020 compared to the same period in 2019.  Interest income decreased $829,000 when comparing the two periods, due to a decrease in the average tax-equivalent yield on interest-earning assets from 4.27% for the six months ended June 30, 2019 to 3.82% for the same period in 2020 partially offset by an increase in the average balance of interest-earning assets from $754.0 million for the six months ended June 30, 2019 to $797.9 million for the same period in 2020.  Interest expense decreased $75,000 as the average cost of interest-bearing liabilities decreased from 0.33% for the six months ended June 30, 2019 to 0.30% for the same period in 2020, while the average balance of interest-bearing liabilities increased from $566.0 million for the six months ended June 30, 2019 to $589.6 million for the same period in 2020. As a result of the changes in interest-earning assets and interest-bearing liabilities, the tax-equivalent interest rate spread decreased from 3.94% for the six months ended June 30, 2019 to 3.52% for the six months ended June 30, 2020.

Based on management's analysis of the allowance for loan losses, the provision for loan losses increased from $750,000 for the six months ended June 30, 2019 to $1.2 million for the six months ended June 30, 2020 primarily due to changes to qualitative factors within the Bank's allowance for loan losses calculation related to uncertainties surrounding COVID-19.  The Bank recognized net charge-offs of $173,000 for the six months ended June 30, 2020 compared to $206,000 for the same period in 2019. 

Noninterest income increased $503,000 for the six months ended June 30, 2020 as compared to the six months ended June 30, 2019.  The increase was primarily due to increases in gains on loans sold and ATM and debit card fees of $633,000 and $265,000, respectively, partially offset by a $149,000 decrease in service charges on deposit accounts when comparing the two periods.  In addition, the six months ended June 30, 2020 included a $171,000 unrealized loss on equity securities compared to a $117,000 unrealized gain on equity securities during the same period in 2019.  

Noninterest expenses increased $14,000 for the six months ended June 30, 2020 as compared to the same period in 2019.   Compensation and benefit expense increased $624,000 when comparing the two periods.  This was partially offset by decreases in net loss on foreclosed real estate, data processing expense and other expenses of $280,000, $156,000 and $134,000, respectively.   

Income tax expense decreased $216,000 for the six months ended June 30, 2020 as compared to the same period in 2019 primarily due to an increase in nontaxable income and a decrease in taxable income.  This resulted in an effective tax rate of 14.9% for the six months ended June 30, 2020, compared to 16.8% for the same period in 2019. 

Total assets increased $92.1 million to $919.6 million at June 30, 2020 from $827.5 million at December 31, 2019.  Cash and cash equivalents and net loans receivable increased $55.1 million and $32.3 million, respectively, from December 31, 2019 to June 30, 2020.  The loan growth was primarily due to the previously mentioned $45.1 million in PPP loans originated.  Deposits increased $85.5 million from December 31, 2019 to $807.6 million at June 30, 2020.   Noninterest-bearing, interest-bearing demand deposits and savings accounts increased $44.6 million, $22.4 million and $22.7 million, respectively, from December 31, 2019.  Nonperforming assets (consisting of nonaccrual loans, accruing loans 90 days or more past due, troubled debt restructurings on accrual status, and foreclosed real estate) increased from $3.1 million at December 31, 2019 to $4.0 million at June 30, 2020.  The Bank has assisted customers experiencing a COVID-19 related hardship by approving payment extensions and waiving or refunding certain banking fees.  As of June 30, 2020, the Bank had approved such extensions on loans totaling $68.1 million, primarily related to commercial real estate lending relationships.  Of that total, $33.2 million had resumed normal payments.

At June 30, 2020, the Bank was considered well-capitalized under applicable federal regulatory capital guidelines.

RECONCILIATION OF GAAP AND NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES (UNAUDITED):

This presentation contains financial information determined by methods other than in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America ("GAAP"). Management uses these "non-GAAP" measures in its analysis of the Company's performance. Management believes that these non-GAAP financial measures allow for better comparability with prior periods, as well as with peers in the industry who provide a similar presentation, and provide a further understanding of the Company's ongoing operations. These disclosures should not be viewed as a substitute for operating results determined in accordance with GAAP, nor are they necessarily comparable to non-GAAP performance measures that may be presented by other companies. The following table summarizes the non-GAAP financial measures derived from amounts reported in the Company's consolidated financial statements and reconciles those non-GAAP financial measures with the comparable GAAP financial measures.
