Share:

SALISBURY, Md., July 28, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Delmar Bancorp (NASDAQ:DBCP) (the "Company" or "Delmar"), the parent company of The Bank of Delmarva ("Delmarva"), Seaford, Delaware, and Virginia Partners Bank ("Partners"), Fredericksburg, Virginia, reported net income of $1.0 million, or $0.06 per share, for the three months ended June 30, 2020, a $711 thousand or 40.6% decrease when compared to net income of $1.8 million, or $0.18 per share, for the same period in 2019.  For the six months ended June 30, 2020, the Company reported net income of $3.4 million, or $0.19 per share, a $296 thousand or 9.4% increase when compared to net income of $3.2 million for the same period in 2019.  The Company's results of operations for the three and six months ended June 30, 2020 were directly impacted by the acquisition of Partners, whose results of operations were not present for the same periods of 2019, and higher provision for credit losses due to the current economic environment and to the COVID-19 pandemic.

As previously disclosed, effective after the close of business on November 15, 2019, the Company and Partners completed their share exchange (the "Share Exchange"), pursuant to which Partners became a wholly owned subsidiary of the Company.  As a result of the Share Exchange, the Company acquired from Partners total assets of $454.2 million, including investment securities available for sale of $65.4 million and loans held for investment of $355.2 million, and total liabilities of $405.0 million, including total deposits of $348.6 million and total borrowings of $49.0 million. 

For the three months ended June 30, 2020, the Company's annualized return on average assets, annualized return on average equity and efficiency ratio were 0.15%, 1.53% and 67.16%, respectively, as compared to 0.46%, 4.70% and 66.23%, respectively, for the same period in 2019.

For the six months ended June 30, 2020, the Company's annualized return on average assets, annualized return on average equity and efficiency ratio were 0.52%, 5.10% and 67.00%, respectively, as compared to 0.83%, 9.28% and 68.01%, respectively, for the same period in 2019.

The decrease in net income for the three months ended June 30, 2020, as compared to the same period in 2019, was driven by higher provision for credit losses and other expenses, and was partially offset by increases in net interest income and other income, and lower federal and state income taxes. 

The increase in net income for the six months ended June 30, 2020, as compared to the same period in 2019, was driven by increases in net interest income and other income, and lower federal and state income taxes, and was partially offset by higher provision for credit losses and other expenses. 

Interest Income and Expense – Three Months Ended June 30, 2020 and 2019

Net interest income and net interest margin

Net interest income in the second quarter of 2020 increased by $3.6 million, or 48.9%, when compared to the second quarter of 2019.  The Company's net interest margin (tax equivalent basis) decreased to 3.50%, representing a decrease of 55 basis points for the three months ended June 30, 2020 as compared to the same period in 2019.  The decrease in the net interest margin (tax equivalent basis) was primarily due to a decrease in the yields earned on average loans and investment securities, and higher average balances of interest-bearing liabilities.  These margin pressures were offset by increases in average loan and investment securities balances, and lower rates paid on average interest-bearing liabilities.  The Company's net interest margin (tax equivalent basis) was also negatively impacted by higher average balances of interest bearing deposits from banks and federal funds sold, which are both lower yielding interest-earning assets.  Total interest income increased by $4.7 million, or 51.2%, for the three months ended June 30, 2020 while total interest expense increased by $1.1 million, or 59.9%, both as compared to the same period in 2019.  The most significant factors impacting net interest income during the three month period ended June 30, 2020 were as follows:

Positive Impacts:

  • Increases in average loan balances, primarily due to the acquisition of Partners, partially offset by lower loan yields;
  • Increases in average investment securities balances, primarily due to the acquisition of Partners, partially offset by lower investment securities yields; and
  • Decrease in the rate paid on average interest-bearing deposit balances, primarily due to lower rates paid on average time deposits, partially offset by increases in average interest-bearing deposit balances, primarily due to the acquisition of Partners and organic deposit growth. 

Negative Impacts:

  • Increases in average interest bearing deposits from banks and federal funds sold, primarily due to the acquisition of Partners and deposit growth outpacing loan growth, partially offset by lower yields on both; and
  • Increases in average borrowings balances, partially offset by lower rates paid on borrowings, in each case primarily due to the acquisition of Partners.

Loans

Average loan balances increased by $404.1 million, or 62.1%, and average yields earned decreased by 0.36% to 4.98% for the three months ended June 30, 2020, as compared to the same period in 2019, primarily due to the inclusion of $405.5 million in Partners average loan balances.  Total average loans were 84.1% of total average interest-earning assets for the three months ended June 30, 2020, compared to 91.2% for the three months ended June 30, 2019.

Investment securities

Average total investment securities balances increased by $66.5 million, or 120.3%, and average yields earned decreased by 0.21% to 2.78% for the three months ended June 30, 2020, as compared to the same period in 2019, primarily due to the inclusion of $58.4 million in Partners total average investment securities balances and management of the investment securities portfolio in light of the Company's liquidity needs.  Total average investment securities were 9.7% of total average interest-earning assets for the three months ended June 30, 2020, compared to 7.7% for the three months ended June 30, 2019. 

Interest-bearing deposits

Average total interest-bearing deposit balances increased by $342.1 million, or 76.9%, and average rates paid decreased by 0.09% to 1.25% for the three months ended June 30, 2020, as compared to the same period in 2019, primarily due to the inclusion of $309.4 million in Partners total average interest-bearing deposit balances and organic deposit growth, and a decrease in the rate paid on average time deposits due to the decline in interest rates beginning late in the first quarter of 2020.

Borrowings

Average total borrowings increased by $77.4 million, or 138.8%, and average rates paid decreased by 1.23% to 1.72% for the three months ended June 30, 2020, as compared to the same period in 2019, primarily due to the inclusion of $80.3 million in Partners average total borrowings.

Interest Income and Expense – Six Months Ended June 30, 2020 and 2019

Net interest income and net interest margin

Net interest income in the first six months of 2020 increased by $7.5 million, or 51.4%, when compared to the first six months of 2019.  The Company's net interest margin (tax equivalent basis) decreased to 3.62%, representing a decrease of 47 basis points for the six months ended June 30, 2020 as compared to the same period in 2019.  The decrease in the net interest margin (tax equivalent basis) was primarily due to a decrease in the yields earned on average loans and investment securities, and higher average balances of interest-bearing liabilities.  These margin pressures were offset by increases in average loan and investment securities balances, and lower rates paid on average interest-bearing liabilities.  The Company's net interest margin (tax equivalent basis) was also negatively impacted by higher average balances of interest bearing deposits from banks and federal funds sold, which are both lower yielding interest-earning assets.  Total interest income increased by $10.1 million, or 55.4%, for the six months ended June 30, 2020 while total interest expense increased by $2.6 million, or 71.1%, both as compared to the same period in 2019.  The most significant factors impacting net interest income during the six month period ended June 30, 2020 were as follows:

Positive Impacts:

  • Increases in average loan balances, primarily due to the acquisition of Partners, partially offset by lower loan yields; and
  • Increases in average investment securities balances, primarily due to the acquisition of Partners, partially offset by lower investment securities yields.

Negative Impacts:

  • Increases in average interest bearing deposits from banks and federal funds sold, primarily due to the acquisition of Partners and deposit growth outpacing loan growth, partially offset by lower yields on both;
  • Increases in average interest-bearing deposit balances and rates paid, in each case primarily due to the acquisition of Partners; and
  • Increases in average borrowings balances, partially offset by lower rates paid on borrowings, in each case primarily due to the acquisition of Partners.

Loans

Average loan balances increased by $385.7 million, or 59.8%, and average yields earned decreased by 0.21% to 5.12% for the six months ended June 30, 2020, as compared to the same period in 2019, primarily due to the inclusion of $387.7 million in Partners average loan balances.  Total average loans were 84.9% of total average interest-earning assets for the six months ended June 30, 2020, compared to 91.3% for the six months ended June 30, 2019.

Investment securities

Average total investment securities balances increased by $62.4 million, or 112.7%, and average yields earned decreased by 0.31% to 2.86% for the six months ended June 30, 2020, as compared to the same period in 2019, primarily due to the inclusion of $55.4 million in Partners total average investment securities balances and management of the investment securities portfolio in light of the Company's liquidity needs.  Total average investment securities were 9.7% of total average interest-earning assets for the six months ended June 30, 2020, compared to 7.8% for the six months ended June 30, 2019. 

Interest-bearing deposits

Average total interest-bearing deposit balances increased by $325.2 million, or 73.5%, and average rates paid increased by 0.03% to 1.32% for the six months ended June 30, 2020, as compared to the same period in 2019, primarily due to the inclusion of $301.7 million in Partners total average interest-bearing deposit balances and organic deposit growth, and a decrease in the rate paid on average time deposits due to the decline in interest rates beginning late in the first quarter of 2020.

Borrowings

Average total borrowings increased by $60.7 million, or 107.1%, and average rates paid decreased by 0.89% to 2.06% for the six months ended June 30, 2020, as compared to the same period in 2019, primarily due to the inclusion of $63.4 million in Partners average total borrowings.

Provision for Credit Losses

The provision for credit losses in the second quarter of 2020 increased by $2.2 million, or 742.3%, when compared to the second quarter of 2019.  The provision for credit losses in the first six months of 2020 increased by $2.6 million, or 429.1%, when compared to the first six months of 2019.  The increase in the provision for credit losses during the three and six months ended June 30, 2020, as compared to the same periods of 2019, was primarily due to the COVID-19 pandemic and qualitative adjustment factors made to the allowance for credit losses related to rising unemployment and economic uncertainty in the Company's markets, and loans originated by Partners subsequent to the 2019 acquisition.  The provision for credit losses during the three and six months ended June 30, 2020, as well as the allowance for credit losses as of June 30, 2020, represents management's best estimate of the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the ability of the Company's borrowers to repay their loans.  Management continues to carefully assess the exposure of the Company's loan portfolio to the COVID-19 pandemic related factors, economic trends and their potential effect on asset quality.  As of June 30, 2020, the Company's delinquencies and nonperforming assets had not been materially impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. 

Other Income

Other income in the second quarter of 2020 increased by $1.3 million, or 155.5%, when compared to the second quarter of 2019.  Key changes in the components of other income for the three months ended June 30, 2020, as compared to the same period in 2019, are as follows:

  • Service charges on deposit accounts decreased by $136 thousand, or 48.9%, due primarily to decreases in overdraft and nonsufficient fund, or NSF, fees as a result of the significant increase in deposit balances, which was partially offset by the inclusion of $9 thousand in Partners service charges on deposit accounts;
  • Gains on investment securities increased by $488 thousand, or 100.0%, due primarily to Partners recording a gain of $381 thousand on the sale of $17.5 million in mortgage-backed investment securities that was not present during the three months ended June 30, 2019.  The sale of these investment securities allowed Partners to take advantage of temporarily higher prices in agency pass-through securities, harvest a one-time gain that is not exhausted over the life of the investment securities sold, and reduce premium risk as prepayment speeds on these investment securities were projected to pick up.  In connection with these sales, Partners reinvested the sale proceeds and deployed excess cash through the purchase of $38.7 million in mortgage-backed investment securities.  In addition, gains on investment securities increased due to Delmarva recording gains on higher yielding investment securities that were called during the second quarter of 2020 and equity investment gains recorded in income during the second quarter of 2020 due to market factors that were not present during the three months ended June 30, 2019; and
  • Other income increased by $953 thousand, or 169.9%, primarily due to the inclusion of $946 thousand in Partners other income, which included ATM and credit card fees, mortgage banking income related to Partners' majority owned subsidiary Johnson Mortgage Company, LLC, and earnings on bank owned life insurance policies.  In addition, other income increased due to higher mortgage division fees, and increases in debit card income and gains on purchased credit impaired loans, which were partially offset by decreases in ATM and loan processing fees.       

Other income in the first six months of 2020 increased by $2.1 million, or 131.4%, when compared to the first six months of 2019.  Key changes in the components of other income for the six months ended June 30, 2020, as compared to the same period in 2019, are as follows:

  • Service charges on deposit accounts decreased by $134 thousand, or 23.8%, due primarily to decreases in overdraft and NSF fees as a result of the significant increase in deposit balances, which was partially offset by inclusion of $36 thousand in Partners service charges on deposit accounts;
  • Gains on investment securities increased by $616 thousand, or 100.0%, due primarily to the aforementioned gain recorded by Partners on the sale of $17.5 million in mortgage-backed investment securities that were not present during the six months ended June 30, 2019.  In addition, gains on investment securities increased due to Delmarva recording gains on higher yielding investment securities that were called during the first six months of 2020 and equity investment gains recorded in income during the first six months of 2020 due to market factors that were not present during the six months ended June 30, 2019; and
  • Other income increased by $1.6 million, or 156.8%, primarily due to the inclusion of $1.5 million in Partners other income, which included ATM and credit card fees, mortgage banking income related to Partners' majority owned subsidiary Johnson Mortgage Company, LLC, and earnings on bank owned life insurance policies.  In addition, other income increased due to higher mortgage division fees and increases in debit card income, which were partially offset by lower ATM fees.

  • Salaries and employee benefits increased by $2.0 million, or 70.2%, primarily due to the inclusion of $1.9 million in Partners salaries and employee benefits and increases due to staffing related changes, merit increases and benefit costs;
  • Premises and equipment increased by $237 thousand, or 26.4%, primarily due to the inclusion of $249 thousand in Partners premises and equipment, which was partially offset by a decrease related to repairs and maintenance;
  • Amortization of core deposit intangible increased by $104 thousand, or 138.3%, primarily due to the amortization related to the $2.7 million core deposit intangible recognized in the Partners acquisition;
  • (Gains) on other real estate owned decreased by $4 thousand, or 100.0%, primarily due to the gain recorded on the sales of lots during the second quarter of 2019 that was not present during the second quarter of 2020; and
  • Other expenses increased by $1.3 million, or 81.7%, primarily due to the inclusion of $1.2 million in Partners other expenses.  In addition, other expenses increased due to higher expenses related to legal, stock exchange (NASDAQ) listing, and director fee expenses, which were partially offset by lower expenses related to merger, FDIC insurance assessments, other real estate owned, training, travel and entertainment, and sponsorships.

Other Expenses

Other expenses in the first six months of 2020 increased by $6.8 million, or 62.0%, when compared to the first six months of 2019.  Key changes in the components of other expenses for the six months ended June 30, 2020, as compared to the same period in 2019, are as follows:

Federal and State Income Taxes

Federal and state income taxes in the second quarter of 2020 decreased by $396 thousand, or 57.0%, when compared to the second quarter of 2019.  This decrease was due primarily to lower consolidated income before taxes on income and lower merger expenses in the second quarter of 2020 as compared to the same period in 2019, which are typically non-deductible.  For the three months ended June 30, 2020, the Company's effective tax rate was approximately 22.3% as compared to 28.4% for the same period in 2019.   

Federal and state income taxes in the first six months of 2020 decreased by $255 thousand, or 18.8%, when compared to the first six months of 2019.  This decrease was due primarily to lower merger expenses in the first six months of 2020 as compared to the same period in 2019, which are typically non-deductible, and was partially offset by higher consolidated income before taxes on income.  For the six months ended June 30, 2020, the Company's effective tax rate was approximately 24.2% as compared to 30.1% for the same period in 2019.   

Balance Sheet

Changes in key balance sheet components as of June 30, 2020 compared to December 31, 2019 were as follows:

  • Total assets as of June 30, 2020 were $1.50 billion, an increase of $243.7 million, or 19.5%, from December 31, 2019.  Key drivers of this change were increases in cash and cash equivalents, investment securities available for sale, at fair value and total loans held for investment;
  • Cash and due from banks as of June 30, 2020 were $177.3 million, an increase of $141.0 million, or 388.5%, from December 31, 2019.  Key drivers of this change were total deposit growth outpacing total loan growth and an increase in other borrowings, which were partially offset by an increase in investment securities available for sale, at fair value, and a decrease in Federal Home Loan Bank borrowings;
  • Interest bearing deposits in other banks as of June 30, 2020 were $34.6 million, an increase of $7.0 million, or 25.3%, from December 31, 2019.  Key drivers of this change were the aforementioned items noted in the cash and due from banks analysis and the maturity of certificate of deposit investments in other banks that were not replaced;
  • Investment securities available for sale, at fair value as of June 30, 2020 were $131.9 million, an increase of $25.6 million, or 24.1%, from December 31, 2019. Key drivers of this change were management of the investment securities available for sale portfolio in light of the Company's liquidity needs and an increase in unrealized gains on the investment securities available for sale portfolio.  The significant inflow of deposits presented the Company with the opportunity to deploy excess cash and cash equivalents primarily into liquid, cash-flowing products while expanding net interest margin and increasing earnings per share;
  • Loans, net of unamortized discounts on acquired loans of $5.0 million as of June 30, 2020 were $1.05 billion, an increase of $59.3 million, or 6.0%, from December 31, 2019.  Key drivers of this change were the origination and funding of approximately $61.5 million in loans under the Paycheck Protection Program ("PPP") of the Small Business Administration, which was partially offset by a decrease in organic growth due to higher pay-offs and tempered loan demand due to the uncertainty surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic;
  • Total deposits as of June 30, 2020 were $1.19 billion, an increase of $184.0 million, or 18.3%, from December 31, 2019.  Key drivers of this change were organic growth as a result of our continued focus on total relationship banking, customers seeking the liquidity and safety of deposit accounts in light of continuing economic uncertainty surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic, and the funding of loans under the PPP of the Small Business Administration, the proceeds of which are deposited directly into the operating account of these customers at the Company;
  • Total borrowings as of June 30, 2020 were $161.3 million, an increase of $56.8 million, or 54.3%, from December 31, 2019.  Key drivers of this change was an increase in borrowings at the Federal Reserve Bank Discount Window under the PPP Liquidity Facility in which the loans under the PPP of the Small Business Administration originated by the Company have been pledged as collateral, and the issuance of $17.8 million in subordinated debt in June 2020, which were partially offset by decreases in Federal Home Loan Bank borrowings due to maturities that were not replaced; and
  • Total stockholders' equity as of June 30, 2020 was $135.0 million, an increase of $4.1 million, or 3.1%, from December 31, 2019.  Key drivers of this change were the net income recorded by the Company for the first six months of 2020 and an increase in accumulated other comprehensive income, net of tax, partially offset by cash dividends paid to shareholders.

Changes in key balance sheet components as of June 30, 2020 compared to June 30, 2019 are as follows; key drivers of these changes include the aforementioned items noted in the balance sheet analysis above and the acquisition of Partners in November 2019:

  • Total assets as of June 30, 2020 were $1.50 billion, an increase of $726.2 million, or 94.3%, from June 30, 2019;

  • Total deposits as of June 30, 2020 were $1.19 billion, an increase of $551.2 million, or 86.2%, from June 30, 2019;

COVID-19 Pandemic Update

In connection with the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, both Delmarva and Partners continue to follow their pandemic response plans, which were enacted in February 2020.  To date, management believes that the plans have been implemented successfully.  The operation of these plans continues to require daily oversight in order to properly navigate this complex and ever-changing environment.  The roll out of these plans previously resulted in adjustments to both Delmarva and Partners branch operations, including, but not limited to, lobby and drive-thru hours as well as physical access, the provision of personal protection equipment to employees and customers, and having employees work remotely whenever possible.  As of June 30, 2020, both Delmarva and Partners branch operations were operating under normal lobby and drive-thru hours with facemasks being required to enter one of their branch facilities and signage and floor markings in their branch lobbies to help facilitate social distancing regulations.  In addition, the majority of Delmarva's and Partners' employees, with a few exceptions, have shifted from remote work to returning to the office on a full-time basis.  Delmarva and Partners continue to proactively work with their local, state and federal government agencies to ensure their response to the COVID-19 pandemic is both safe and sound with little disruption to their customers. Additionally, Delmarva and Partners continue to take necessary precautions in order to protect their staffs, customers and their families as well as their communities, and to limit the ongoing impact of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Company's focus from the beginning has been ensuring the health and safety of its employees and customers, providing all necessary financial support and services to its customers and communities, continuing to operate Delmarva and Partners in a safe and sound manner, and protecting the investment its shareholders have made in the Company.  Beginning late in the first quarter of 2020, both Delmarva and Partners began assisting their customers in obtaining loans under the PPP of the Small Business Administration in order to further assist their communities.  As of June 30, 2020, on a consolidated basis, the Company directly originated and funded over 500 loans totaling approximately $61.5 million under this program, all of which have been pledged as collateral to the Federal Reserve Bank Discount Window under the PPP Liquidity Facility.  Aggregate fees, net of costs to originate, from the Small Business Administration of approximately $2.4 million will be recognized in interest income over the life of the loans.

In addition, in an effort to support the Company's borrowers in their times of need, the Company has granted loan payment deferrals to certain borrowers, who were current on their payments prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, on a short-term basis of three to six months.  As of June 30, 2020, on a consolidated basis, the Company had approved loan payment deferrals or payments of interest only for 548 loans totaling $286.6 million, all of which are still accruing interest, which represents approximately 28.8% of total loan balances outstanding. 

The following table presents a summary of the loan payment deferrals, full payment and interest only payment deferral, as a percentage of the number of loans outstanding and loan balances outstanding, granted by the Company as of June 30, 2020 related to the COVID-19 pandemic:

"Throughout the second quarter of 2020, our focus has been on the health and safety of our employees and customers, providing necessary financial support and services to our customers and communities, and managing the ever changing risk elements of our economy," said Lloyd B. Harrison, III, the Company's Chief Executive Officer.  "The COVID-19 pandemic has presented significant financial challenges for many of our customers and brought economic uncertainty.  Despite working in modified business operations for most of the second quarter, we have continued to strive to meet the services expectations of our customers.  I could not be more proud of how Delmarva and Partners have risen to the occasion in providing support to our customers and communities during this difficult time.  The Company's second quarter 2020 operating results were negatively impacted by the economic uncertainty surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic, including higher provision for credit losses, lower organic loan growth and decreases in our net interest income and net interest margin when compared to the first quarter of 2020.  While we remain cautiously optimistic regarding the gradual reopening of the economies in the markets in which we operate, as well as our current pipeline of opportunities, it is likely that the COVID-19 pandemic and the economic disruption related to it, will continue to negatively impact the Company's financial position and operating results for the second half of 2020.  However, with our current levels of liquidity and capital, including our recently completed $17.8 million subordinated debt offering, we believe we are well positioned to continue to support the needs of our customers and communities, successfully navigate this unprecedented environment, and capitalize on any strategic opportunities that may present themselves."
