ELMIRA, N.Y., Jan. 30, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Chemung Financial Corporation (Nasdaq:CHMG), the parent company of Chemung Canal Trust Company, reported fourth quarter ended December 31, 2013 and full-year net income and earnings per share. Highlights for the fourth quarter and full year include:

  • In the fourth quarter, the Corporation completed the acquisition of six former Bank of America branch offices located in Cayuga, Cortland, Seneca and Tompkins counties in New York. As part of the transaction, the Corporation acquired approximately $177.7 million in deposits and $1.2 million in loans. The acquisition is expected to be accretive to earnings in 2015. The Corporation now operates 31 branch offices in New York and 3 branch offices in Pennsylvania. This is the fourth acquisition over the past five years for the Corporation.
  • Net income for the fourth quarter of 2013 was $1.5 million, or $0.32 per share, compared with $2.1 million, or $0.46 per share, for the same quarter in the prior year. Excluding pre-tax items of $0.5 million in gain from bargain purchase and $1.2 million in acquisition expenses, core net income for the fourth quarter of 2013 was $1.7 million, or $0.37 per share. The gain from bargain purchase represents the excess fair value of net assets acquired in the branch acquisition completed in the fourth quarter of 2013.
  • Net income for the twelve months ended December 31, 2013 was $8.7 million, or $1.87 per share, compared with $11.0 million, or $2.38 per share, for the same period in the prior year, a decrease of $2.3 million, or 20.8%. Excluding pre-tax items of $0.5 million in gain from bargain purchase and $1.4 million in acquisition expenses, core net income for the twelve months ended December 31, 2013 was $9.1 million, or $1.96 per share. Excluding pre-tax items of $0.3 million in net gain on securities transactions and $0.8 million in casualty gains, core net income for the twelve months ended December 31, 2012 was $10.4 million, or $2.23 per share.
  • Net interest margin for the fourth quarter of 2013 was 3.66%, compared with 3.84% for the preceding quarter and 3.98% for the fourth quarter in the prior year. Net interest margin for the twelve months ended December 31, 2013 was 3.85%, down from 4.07% for the same period in the prior year, while average interest-earning assets increased $59.3 million.
  • Non-performing assets to total assets ratio was 0.61% at December 31, 2013 compared with 0.53% at December 31, 2012.
  • Book value per share was $29.67 at December 31, 2013 compared with $28.20 at December 31, 2012, an increase of $1.47, or 5.2%. Tangible book value per share was $23.63 at December 31, 2013 compared with $22.40 at December 31, 2012, an increase of $1.23, or 5.5%.
  • As a result of the branch acquisition, the tangible equity to tangible assets ratio decreased to 7.62% at December 31, 2013, compared with 8.53% at December 31, 2012.
  • Dividends declared during the quarter ended December 31, 2013 were $0.26 per share compared with $0.25 per share for the prior year, an increase of 4.0%. Dividends declared during the twelve months ended December 31, 2013 were $1.04 per share compared with $1.00 per share for the prior year, an increase of 4.0%. For 2013, the dividend yield was 3.0% on the Corporation's stock.
  • The Corporation was added to the Russell 3000 Index, which measures the performance of the largest 3,000 publicly held U.S. companies based on total market capitalization. In addition, the Corporation has met the listing requirements for inclusion in the NASDAQ Global Select Market effective January 2, 2014.

Ronald M. Bentley, President and CEO stated, "As expected, 2013 was an eventful and challenging year as earnings came under pressure from net interest margin compression. The single best strategy to combat margin compression is to grow our balance sheet, so we were pleased with the acquisition of six branch offices in contiguous markets during the fourth quarter of 2013. This transaction becomes increasingly accretive to earnings as we channel the acquired deposits into loans over the next few years."

Mr. Bentley stated, "In addition to the acquisition, we experienced solid organic growth in both loans and deposits during 2013. Commercial loans increased $64.5 million, or 14.2% and consumer loans increased $42.4 million, or 17.7%. Excluding the deposits acquired in the branch acquisition, organic growth in deposits was $40.9 million, or 3.9%."

"Our inclusion in the Russell 3000 Index is another opportunity to increase the liquidity in our shares for current and future shareholders," said Mr. Bentley. "This listing certainly aids in our effort to increase the visibility of the Corporation within the investment community," Bentley added.

Summary:

Chemung Financial Corporation reported net income of $1.5 million for the fourth quarter of 2013, a decrease of $0.6 million, or 30.2%, compared with $2.1 million for the same period in the prior year. Earnings per share for the fourth quarter of 2013 totaled $0.32, compared with $0.46 for the same period in the prior year. Return on average assets and return on average equity for the fourth quarter of 2013 were 0.42% and 4.34%, respectively, compared with 0.67% and 6.33%, respectively, for the same period in the prior year.

Core net income for the fourth quarter of 2013 was $1.7 million, or $0.37 per share, compared with $2.1 million, or $0.46 per share, for the same period in the prior year. Core net income for the current quarter excluded $0.5 million in gain from bargain purchase and $1.2 million in acquisition expenses. The decrease in core net income was due primarily to increases of $0.9 million in the provision for loan losses and $0.7 million in non-interest expense. These items were partially offset by increases of $0.5 million in net interest income and $0.6 million in non-interest income. Core return on average assets and core return on average equity for the fourth quarter of 2013 were 0.49% and 5.09%, respectively, compared with 0.67% and 6.33%, respectively, for the same period in the prior year.

Net income of $1.5 million for the current quarter ended December 31, 2013 represents a decrease of $0.7 million, or 31.8%, from net income of $2.2 million for the preceding quarter ended September 30, 2013. The decline in earnings was due primarily to an increase of $2.7 million in non-interest expense, which included $1.2 million in acquisition expenses. These items were partially offset by increases of $0.6 million in net interest income and $0.9 million in non-interest income, which included $0.5 million in gain from bargain purchase. Earnings per share for the current quarter totaled $0.32 compared with $0.47 for the preceding quarter. Return on average assets and return on average equity for the current quarter were 0.42% and 4.34%, respectively, compared with 0.67% and 6.45%, respectively, for the preceding quarter.

Net income for the twelve months ended December 31, 2013 was $8.7 million, a decrease of $2.3 million, or 20.8%, compared with $11.0 million for the twelve months ended December 31, 2012. Earnings per share for the twelve months ended December 31, 2013 was $1.87, compared with $2.38 for the twelve months ended December 31, 2012. Return on average assets and return on average equity for the twelve months ended December 31, 2013 were 0.67% and 6.50%, respectively, compared with 0.88% and 8.41%, respectively, for the same period in the prior year.

Core net income for the twelve months ended December 31, 2013 was $9.1 million, or $1.96 per share, compared with $10.4 million, or $2.23 per share, for the twelve months ended December 31, 2012. The current year core net income excluded $0.5 million in gain from bargain purchase and $1.4 million in acquisition expenses. The prior year core net income excluded pre-tax items of $0.3 million in net gain on securities transactions and $0.8 million in casualty gains. The decrease in core net income was due primarily to increases of $1.9 million in the provision for loan losses and $1.2 million in non-interest expense, and a decline of $0.2 million in net interest income. These items were partially offset by an increase of $1.5 million in non-interest income and a reduction of $0.6 million in income taxes. Core return on average assets and core return on average equity for the twelve months ended December 31, 2013 were 0.70% and 6.79%, respectively, compared with 0.83% and 7.91%, respectively, for the same period in the prior year.

Net Interest Income:

Net interest income for the fourth quarter of 2013 totaled $12.1 million compared with $11.6 million for the same period in the prior year, an increase of $0.5 million, or 3.7%. Net interest margin was 3.66% for the fourth quarter of 2013 compared with 3.98% for the same period in the prior year. The decline in net interest margin was due in part to a 39 basis point decrease in the yield on interest-earning assets, partially offset by a 13 basis point decline in the cost of funds and an increase of $144.1 million in average earning assets. In addition, the net interest margin declined as a result of the investment of cash from the branch acquisition into investment securities.

Net interest income for the current quarter totaled $12.1 million compared with $11.5 million for the preceding quarter ended September 30, 2013, an increase of $0.6 million, or 4.8%. Net interest margin was 3.66% for the current quarter compared with 3.84% for the preceding quarter. The increase in net interest income was due primarily to an increase of $117.0 million in average earning assets, partially offset by a 20 basis point decrease in the yield on interest-earning assets. The decline in net interest margin was due in part to yields on interest-earning assets decreasing at a faster rate than the cost of interest-bearing liabilities and as stated above, the branch acquisition.

Net interest income for the twelve months ended December 31, 2013 totaled $46.6 million compared with $46.8 million for the prior year, a decrease of $0.2 million, or 0.5%. Net interest margin was 3.85% for the twelve months ended December 31, 2013 compared with 4.07% for the same period in the prior year. The decline in net interest income was due primarily to margin compression evidenced by a 34 basis point decrease in the yield on interest-earning assets, partially offset by a 16 basis point decline in the cost of funds and an increase of $59.3 million in average earning assets. The decline in net interest margin was due primarily to yields on interest-earning assets decreasing at a faster rate than the cost of interest-bearing liabilities. The decrease in yield on interest-earning assets was attributable to lower loan yields as loans continue to reprice at current market rates. In addition, the Corporation anticipated a decline in the yield on interest-earning assets due in part to its investment of cash from the branch acquisition into investment securities.

Non-Interest Income:

Non-interest income for the fourth quarter of 2013 was $5.2 million compared with $4.4 million for the preceding quarter ended September 30, 2013 and $4.2 million for the same fourth quarter in the prior year. The increase from the preceding quarter and year-ago quarter was due primarily to a gain from bargain purchase and increases in Wealth Management fee income and service charges on deposit accounts.

Net loss on securities transactions for the fourth quarter of 2013 was less than $0.1 million, due primarily to the sale of a CDO consisting of a pool of trust preferred securities that was rated as Caa3 by Moody's. In light of uncertainty around the treatment of covered securities under Volker Rule provisions, the Corporation thought it was prudent to sell the CDO at a slight loss.

Non-interest income for the twelve months ended December 31, 2013 was $18.1 million compared with $17.2 million for the prior year, an increase of $0.9 million, or 5.2%. The increase was due primarily to a $0.5 million gain from bargain purchase and increases of $0.5 million in Wealth Management Group fee income and $0.5 million in service charges on deposit accounts. These items were partially offset by reductions of $0.8 million in casualty gains from insurance reimbursements and $0.3 million in net gain on securities transactions.

Non-Interest Expense:

Non-interest expense for the fourth quarter of 2013 was $14.5 million compared with $12.6 million for the prior year, an increase of $1.9 million, or 14.5%. The increase was due primarily to increases of $1.2 million in acquisition expenses and $0.3 million in pension and other employee benefits.

Non-interest expense for the current quarter was $14.5 million compared with $11.8 million for the preceding quarter ended September 30, 2013, an increase of $2.7 million, or 22.5%. The increase was due primarily to increases of $1.0 million in acquisition expenses, $0.5 million in salaries and wages, and $0.4 million in pension and other employee benefits.

Non-interest expense for the twelve months ended December 31, 2013 was $49.4 million compared with $46.8 million for the prior year, an increase of $2.6 million, or 5.6%. The increase was due primarily to increases of $1.4 million in acquisition expenses, $0.4 million in salaries and wages, $0.3 million in pension and other employee benefits, $0.3 million in net occupancy expense and $0.3 million in data processing costs. These items were partially offset by a decrease of $0.5 million in professional services.

Asset Quality:

Non-performing loans totaled $8.5 million at December 31, 2013, or 0.85% of total loans, up from $6.0 million, or 0.68%, at December 31, 2012. The increase in non-performing loans at December 31, 2013 was primarily in the commercial loan segment of the loan portfolio. Non-performing assets, which are comprised of non-performing loans and other real estate owned, totaled $9.0 million at December 31, 2013, or 0.61% of total assets, up from $6.6 million, or 0.53%, at December 31, 2012. The Corporation's peer group average for the ratio of non-performing assets to total assets was 1.46% at September 30, 2013 (the most recent period available).

Management performs an ongoing assessment of the adequacy of the allowance for loan losses based upon a number of factors including an analysis of historical loss factors, collateral evaluations, recent charge-off experience, credit quality of the loan portfolio, current economic conditions and loan growth. Based on this analysis, the provision for loan losses for the fourth quarter of 2013 was $1.0 million compared with $0.9 million for the preceding quarter ended September 30, 2013, and $0.1 million for the same period in the prior year. The increase in the provision for loan losses was due primarily to the establishment of $0.5 million in additional specific reserves on two commercial loans and loan portfolio growth. Net charge-offs for the current quarter were $0.1 million compared with $0.3 million for the preceding quarter and $0.5 million for the same period in the prior year.

The provision for loan losses for the twelve months ended December 31, 2013 was $2.8 million compared with $0.8 million for the same period in the prior year. The increase in the provision for loan losses was due primarily to the establishment of $0.9 million in additional specific reserves on three commercial loans, loan portfolio growth and higher net charge-offs. Net charge-offs for the twelve months ended December 31, 2013 were $0.4 million compared with $0.2 million for the prior year.

At December 31, 2013 the allowance for loan losses was $12.8 million, compared with $10.4 million at December 31, 2012. The allowance for loan losses was 150.11% of non-performing loans at December 31, 2013, compared with 172.96% at December 31, 2012. The ratio of the allowance for loan losses to total loans was 1.28% at December 31, 2013, compared with 1.17% at December 31, 2012.

Balance Sheet Activity:

Assets totaled $1.476 billion at December 31, 2013 compared with $1.248 billion at December 31, 2012, an increase of $227.9 million, or 18.3%. The growth was due primarily to increases of $106.8 million in investment securities and $102.3 million, or 11.5%, in total portfolio loans. The increase in portfolio loans was due to strong growth of $64.5 million in commercial loans and $42.4 million in consumer loans.

Deposits totaled $1.263 billion at December 31, 2013 compared with $1.045 million at December 31, 2012, an increase of $218.6 million, or 20.9%. The increase was primarily due to $177.7 million from the branch acquisition and $40.9 million in organic deposit growth. At December 31, 2013, demand deposit and money market accounts comprised 65.5% of total deposits compared with 60.7% at December 31, 2012.

Total equity was $138.6 million at December 31, 2013 compared with $131.1 million at December 31, 2012, an increase of $7.5 million, or 5.7%. The total equity to total assets ratio was 9.39% at December 31, 2013 compared with 10.50% at December 31, 2012. The tangible equity to tangible assets ratio was 7.62% at December 31, 2013 compared with 8.53% at December 31, 2012. Book value per share increased to $29.67 at December 31, 2013 from $28.20 at December 31, 2012. As of December 31, 2013, both the Corporation's and the Bank's capital ratios were in excess of those required to be considered well-capitalized under regulatory capital standards.

Other Items:

The market value of total assets under management or administration in our Wealth Management Group was $1.888 billion at December 31, 2013 compared with $1.735 billion at December 31, 2012, an increase of $153.0 million, or 8.8%.

Subsequent Event:

In addition to the CDO that was sold during the fourth quarter of 2013, the Corporation owned one other CDO consisting of a pool of trust preferred securities. The remaining CDO was liquidated and the Corporation will record a gain of approximately $0.5 million during the first quarter of 2014.

GAAP to Non-GAAP Reconciliations (Unaudited)

The table below shows computations of tangible equity and tangible assets and certain related ratios, all of which are considered to be non-GAAP financial measures. The tangible equity to tangible assets ratio has become a focus of some investors and management believes this ratio may assist in analyzing the Corporation's capital position, absent the effects of intangible assets. These non-GAAP financial measures have limitations as analytical tools, and should not be considered in isolation, or as a substitute for analysis of results reported under GAAP. Because not all companies use identical calculations, the non-GAAP measures presented in the following table may not be comparable to those reported by other companies.
