Sussex Bancorp Logo

FRANKLIN, N.J., Feb. 3, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Sussex Bancorp (the "Company") (Nasdaq:SBBX), the holding company for Sussex Bank (the "Bank") today announced reported net income of $621 thousand, or $0.14 per basic and diluted share, for the quarter ended December 31, 2013, as compared to a net loss of $97 thousand, or $(0.03) per basic and diluted share, for the same period last year. For the year ended December 31, 2013, the Company reported net income of $1.4 million, or $0.38 per basic share and $0.37 per diluted share, as compared to net income of $735 thousand, or $0.23 per basic share and $0.22 per diluted share, for the same period last year. Net income benefited from strong growth in loans, which increased $44.7 million or 12.8% at December 31, 2013 as compared to December 31, 2012, and declines of $1.9 million, or 72.9%, and $2.5 million, or 35.0%, in credit quality costs (provision for loan losses, loan collection costs and expenses and write-downs related to foreclosed real estate) for the quarter and year ended December 31, 2013, respectively, as compared to the same periods in the prior year. The declines in credit quality costs were driven by a significant improvement in credit quality as non-performing assets ("NPAs") to total assets improved to 3.1%, which is the lowest level since 2007.

"In 2013, we had strong growth in our principal business lines, specifically in our commercial loan portfolio, which grew 14.2%. The loan growth enhanced our net interest margin and contributed to the improvement in our core earnings for the quarter," said Anthony Labozzetta, President and Chief Executive Officer of Sussex Bank. Mr. Labozzetta also stated, "We have reduced our legacy problem assets considerably and as of the end of this quarter, our NPAs were $16.6 million or 3.10% of total assets, a decrease of $7.2 million, or 30.2% as compared to the same period last year." Additionally, Mr. Labozzetta noted that, "we saw a considerable reduction in credit quality costs related to the legacy problem assets, which combined with the growth in our business, has greatly improved our operating results."

Financial Performance

Net Income. For the quarter ended December 31, 2013, the Company reported net income of $621 thousand, or $0.14 per basic and diluted share, as compared to a net loss of $97 thousand, or $(0.03) per basic and diluted share, for the same period last year. The increase in net income for the quarter ended December 31, 2013 was largely due to a decrease in credit quality costs of $1.9 million or 72.9%, which was partially offset by a decrease in gain on securities transactions of $1.0 million.

For the year ended December 31, 2013, the Company reported net income of $1.4 million, or $0.38 per basic share and $0.37 per diluted share, as compared to net income of $735 thousand, or $0.23 per basic and $0.22 per diluted share, for the same period last year. The increase in net income for the year ended December 31, 2013 was primarily attributed to a decrease in credit quality costs of $2.5 million or 35.0%, which was partially offset by a decrease in gain on securities transactions of $1.4 million.

Net Interest Income. Net interest income on a fully tax equivalent basis increased $328 thousand, or 8.0%, to $4.4 million for the fourth quarter of 2013 as compared to $4.1 million for same period in 2012. The increase in net interest income was largely due to a $30.0 million, or 6.3%, increase in average interest earning assets, principally loans receivable. The aforementioned increase also benefited from a 5 basis point increase in the net interest margin to 3.46% for the fourth quarter of 2013 as compared to the same period last year. The increase in the net interest margin was mostly due to a decrease in the average rate paid on total interest bearing liabilities, which decreased 10 basis points to 0.74% for the fourth quarter of 2013 from 0.84% for the same period in 2012.

Net interest income on a fully tax equivalent basis increased $207 thousand, or 1.2%, to $17.0 million for the year ended December 31, 2013 as compared to $16.8 million for same period in 2012. The increase in net interest income was largely due to the Company's increase in average interest earning assets of $21.4 million or 4.5%, offset by the net interest margin declining 11 basis points to 3.41% for the year ended December 31, 2013 compared to the same period last year. The increase in average interest earning assets was driven by growth in average total loans receivable of $33.0 million, offset by a decrease in average other interest earning assets of $11.7 million. The decline in the net interest margin was mostly due to a 27 basis point decline in the average rate earned on interest earning assets. This decline was partially offset by a decrease in the average rate paid on total interest bearing liabilities, which decreased 15 basis points to 0.75% for the year ended December 31, 2013 from 0.90% for the same period in 2012.

Provision for Loan Losses. Provision for loan losses decreased $1.0 million to $403 thousand for the fourth quarter of 2013, as compared to $1.4 million for the same period in 2012.

Provision for loan losses decreased $1.6 million to $2.7 million for the year ended December 31, 2013, as compared to $4.3 million for the same period in 2012.

Non-interest Income. The Company reported a decrease in non-interest income of $890 thousand, or 38.7%, to $1.4 million for the fourth quarter of 2013 as compared to the same period last year. The decrease in non-interest income was largely due to a decrease in gains on securities transactions of $1.0 million, which was partially offset by increases in other income, mostly prepayment penalties, and insurance commissions and fees of $82 thousand, or 100%, and $65 thousand, or 11.0%, respectively.

The Company reported a decrease in non-interest income of $908 thousand, or 13.0%, to $6.1 million for year ended December 31, 2013 as compared to the same period last year. The decrease in non-interest income was primarily due to a decrease in gains on securities transactions of $1.4 million, which was partially offset by an increase in insurance commissions and fees of $418 thousand, or 16.8%.

Non-interest Expense. The Company's non-interest expenses decreased $641 thousand, or 12.4%, to $4.5 million for the fourth quarter of 2013 as compared to the same period last year. The decrease for the fourth quarter of 2013 as compared to the same period in 2012 was largely due to decreases in expenses and write-downs related to foreclosed real estate and loan collection costs of $833 thousand and $78 thousand, respectively, which were partly offset by an increase in salaries and employee benefits expense of $138 thousand.

The Company's non-interest expenses decreased $204 thousand, or 1.1%, to $18.2 million for the year ended December 31, 2013 as compared to the same period last year. The decrease for the year ended December 31, 2013 as compared to the same period in 2012 was largely due to decreases in expenses and write-downs related to foreclosed real estate and loan collection costs of $547 thousand and $366 thousand, respectively, and were partly offset by increases in salaries and employee benefits expense of $337 thousand, director fees of $124 thousand and other expense of $118 thousand. The increase in director expense was principally related to a deferred compensation plan that is tied to the performance of the Company's stock, which has increased 45.2% at December 31, 2013 when compared to December 31, 2012.

Financial Condition

At December 31, 2013, the Company's total assets were $533.9 million, an increase of $19.2 million, or 3.7%, as compared to total assets of $514.7 million at December 31, 2012. The increase in total assets was largely driven by net loans receivable growth of $44.7 million, or 12.8%, which was partially offset by a decline in the securities portfolio of $27.4 million, or 22.0%.

The Company saw strong loan growth as total loans receivable, net of unearned income, increased $44.7 million, or 12.8%, to $392.4 million at December 31, 2013, as compared to $347.7 million at December 31, 2012. The increase in loans was primarily in the commercial real estate portfolio, which increased $35.3 million, or 15.7%, to $260.7 million at December 31, 2013, as compared to $225.3 million at December 31, 2012 and in the residential real estate portfolio, which increased $9.7 million, or 9.9%, to $108.0 million at December 31, 2013, as compared to $98.3 million at December 31, 2012.

The Company's total deposits decreased $2.1 million, or 0.5%, to $430.3 million at December 31, 2013, from $432.4 million at December 31, 2012. The decrease in deposits was due to a decrease in interest bearing deposits of $12.0 million, or 3.1%, partially offset by an increase in non-interest bearing deposits of $9.8 million, or 20.3%, for December 31, 2013, as compared to December 31, 2012.

At December 31, 2013, the Company's total stockholders' equity was $46.4 million, an increase of $6.1 million when compared to December 31, 2012. The increase was largely due to an increase in capital due to the successful completion of a rights offering in the third quarter, which was partially offset by a decrease in accumulated other comprehensive income relating to net unrealized losses on available for sale securities. At December 31, 2013, the leverage, Tier I risk-based capital and total risk-based capital ratios for the Bank were 10.38%, 14.21% and 15.47%, respectively, all in excess of the ratios required to be deemed "well-capitalized."

Asset and Credit Quality

The Company continued to improve its asset credit quality as total problem assets and NPAs continued to decline. Overall problem assets (foreclosed real estate, criticized assets and classified assets) are down 22.3% from December 31, 2012, and the ratio of NPAs to total assets improved to 3.10% at December 31, 2013 from 4.61% at December 31, 2012. Non-accrual loans to total loans fell to 3.03% at December 31, 2013, which is the lowest level since 2007. In addition, foreclosed real estate declined $2.1 million, or 42.2% from December 31, 2012.

NPAs, which include non-accrual loans, loans 90 days past due and still accruing, troubled debt restructured loans currently performing in accordance with renegotiated terms and foreclosed real estate, decreased $7.2 million, or 30.2%, to $16.6 million at December 31, 2013, as compared to $23.8 million at December 31, 2012. Non-accrual loans decreased $6.0 million, or 33.5%, to $11.9 million at December 31, 2013, as compared to $17.9 million at December 31, 2012. The top five non-performing loan relationships total $7.2 million, or 60.7%, of total non-performing loans and 43.6% of total NPAs at December 31, 2013. The remaining non-performing loans have an average loan balance of $120 thousand.

The Company continues to actively market its foreclosed real estate properties, which decreased $2.1 million to $2.9 million at December 31, 2013, as compared to $5.1 million at December 31, 2012. The decrease was primarily due to the sale of foreclosed real estate properties and write-downs on foreclosed real estate of $5.2 million and $1.2 million, respectively, which was partially offset by the addition of $4.2 million in new foreclosed real estate properties during 2013. At December 31, 2013, the Company's foreclosed real estate properties had an average value of approximately $225 thousand per property.

Loans past due 30 to 89 days increased $923 thousand, or 33.5%, to $3.7 million at December 31, 2013, as compared to $2.8 million at December 31, 2012. The increase was largely due to two loan relationships that totaled $2.5 million of which one relationship for $1.4 million was brought current and performing to contractual terms in 2014.

The allowance for loan losses was $5.4 million, or 1.4% of total loans, at December 31, 2013, compared to $5.0 million, or 1.4% of total loans, at December 31, 2012. The increase in the allowance for loan losses was largely attributed to $2.7 million in provision for loan losses, which was partly offset by $2.3 million in net charge-offs for 2013. In addition, the allowance for loan losses as a percentage of non-performing loans improved to 39.7% at December 31, 2013 from 26.6% at December 31, 2012.
