SBT Bancorp, Inc. Reports Second Quarter 2013 Results
SIMSBURY, Conn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- SBT Bancorp, Inc., (OTCBB: SBTB), holding company for Simsbury Bank & Trust Company, today announced net income of $401,000 or $0.43 per diluted share for the second quarter of 2013, compared to $453,000 or $0.49 per diluted share for the second quarter of 2012.
For the six months ended June 30, 2013, net income amounted to $918,000, or $0.99 per diluted share. This compares to net income of $934,000 or $0.96 per diluted share for the six months ended June 30, 2012. Total assets on June 30, 2013 were $382 million compared to $340 million on June 30, 2012.
Key highlights for the second quarter of 2013 included:
Total assets grew $43 million or 13%
Total loans increased $32 million or 14% reflecting growth in both commercial loans and residential mortgages
Total deposits increased $17 million or 6%
Non-interest income increased by $16 thousand or 2% due to an increase in service charge and fee income
Year-to-date non-interest income increased by $342 thousand or 21%
Net interest and dividend income was flat compared to the second quarter of 2012
Second quarter net interest margin of 3.10% was up by 7 basis points compared to the first quarter of 2013
Second quarter 2013 net income was $52 thousand or 11% lower than second quarter of 2012 net income
Year-to-date 2013 diluted earnings per share increased $0.03 or 3% compared to the same period in 2012
A rapid increase in longer-term interest rates during the second quarter of 2013 negatively impacted residential mortgage refinancing activity and gain-on-sale income
Total loan delinquency increased to 1.38% of total loans compared to the previous year's 0.45% primarily due to two related business loans totaling $1.1 million that were placed on non-accrual status during the quarter. Both loans are well collateralized, with no loss expected. Overall loan delinquency remains favorable to peers.
The allowance for loan losses at June 30, 2013 was 1.04% of total loans.
The Bank's Total Risk Based Capital ratio ended the second quarter of 2013 at 14.18%
During the month of June, the Company began moving its administrative offices to a larger facility to accommodate growth. The move was completed in July.
"The second quarter featured double-digit growth in our loan portfolio and mortgage originations and continued strong deposit growth. Our earnings performance, however, was disappointing as the sudden and dramatic rise in market interest rates adversely impacted our mortgage gain-on-sale revenue trend and slowed demand for mortgage refinancings. Nevertheless, we are very pleased with progress in our commercial lending operations, with commercial loan balances increasing by $10 million or 17% since yearend 2012," stated SBT Bancorp President and CEO, Martin J. Geitz. "During the quarter, we also began moving the Company's administrative offices to a larger more efficient facility that consolidates all non-branch personnel and provides a very functional working environment that will accommodate our anticipated growth for the next several years."
On June 30, 2013, loans outstanding were $255 million, an increase of $32 million, or 14%, over a year ago. Commercial loans grew by $14 million or 25%, Residential mortgage loans grew by $20 million or 19%, and Consumer loans declined by $2 million or 3%. Mortgage and consumer loan closings combined increased by 7% in the second quarter and 20% during the first six months of the year, respectively, compared to 2012 performance. Mortgage closings were 4% higher for the second quarter and 17% higher for the first half of the year. Consumer loan closings were 26% higher for the second quarter and 37% higher than 2012 for the first half of the year. The Bank was first in mortgage loan volume market share, according to the Warren Group, in its four town branch market as well as its nine town CRA market area. The profile of the Company's loan portfolio remains relatively strong. The Company's allowance for loan losses at June 30, 2013 was 1.04% of total loans. The Company had non-accrual loans totaling $2.7 million equal to 1.07 % of total loans on June 30, 2013 compared to non-accrual loans totaling $847 thousand or 0.38% of total loans a year ago. Total non-accrual and delinquent loans on June 30, 2013 were 1.38% of loans outstanding compared to 0.45% on June 30, 2012. The increase in non-accrual and delinquent loans was primarily due to two loans to related businesses that discontinued operations in June, totaling $1.1 million. Both loans are fully collateralized with no loss expected.
Total deposits on June 30, 2013 were $325 million, an increase of $17 million or 6% over a year ago. This growth was mainly in core demand deposits. At quarter-end, 30% of total deposits were in non-interest bearing demand accounts, 48% were in low-cost savings and NOW accounts, and 22% were in time deposits.
Total revenues, consisting of net interest and dividend income plus noninterest income, were $3,630,000 in the second quarter compared to $3,616,000 a year ago, an increase of less than 1%. Net interest and dividend income decreased by $2,000, primarily due to a decline in loan yields. Noninterest income increased by $16,000 or 2% primarily due to an increase in service charge and fee income. For the six months ended June 30, 2013, total revenues were $7,326,000 compared to $7,012,000 for the six months ended June 30, 2012, an increase of $314,000 or 4%. Over this period, net interest and dividend income declined by $28,000 while noninterest income increased by $342,000 or 21% primarily due to an increase in gains on loans sold.
The Company's taxable-equivalent net interest margin (taxable-equivalent net interest and dividend income divided by average earning assets) was 3.10% for the second quarter of 2013, compared to 3.34% for the second quarter of 2012 and 3.03% for the first quarter of 2013. The Company's cost of funds declined 7 basis points while the yield on interest earning assets decreased 30 basis points during the second quarter of 2013, compared to the second quarter of 2012.
Total noninterest expenses for the second quarter of 2013 were $3,050,000, an increase of $104,000 or 3.5% above the second quarter of 2012. Second quarter 2013 expense increases included occupancy costs related to relocating the Company's administrative offices to a larger facility. The move was completed during the month of July. Salary and employee benefits increased by $111,000 or 6.9%. Professional fees declined by $51,000 or 29%. For the six months ended June 30, 2013, total noninterest expenses were $6,040,000 compared to $5,592,000 for the six months ended June 30, 2012, an increase of $448,000 or 8%. Over this period, the increase in expenses was primarily in salary and employee benefits.
