NBT Bancorp Inc. Announces Net Income of $18.0 Million and Organic Loan Growth of 5.6% for the First Quarter of 2014

NORWICH, N.Y., April 28, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- NBT Bancorp Inc. (NBT) (Nasdaq:NBTB) reported net income for the three months ended March 31, 2014 was $18.0 million, up from $7.6 million for the same period last year. The 2014 first quarter results included the full impact of the March 8, 2013 acquisition of Alliance Financial Corporation ("Alliance"). Reported results for the first quarter of 2013 included approximately $10.7 million in merger related expenses. Reported earnings per diluted share for the three months ended March 31, 2014 was $0.41 as compared to $0.21 for the same period in 2013.

Core net income (excluding net securities gains, merger related expenses, and other items not considered core) for the three months ended March 31, 2014 was $18.4 million, up 29.1% from $14.3 million for the same period in 2013. Core diluted earnings per share for the three months ended March 31, 2014 was $0.42, up from $0.39 for the same period in 2013.

First Quarter 2014 Highlights:

  • Net income of $18.0 million for the first quarter of 2014 is the second highest quarter in the Company's history
  • Strong organic loan growth continued in the first quarter of 2014 annualized at 5.6%
  • Net charge-offs to average loans was 0.27% for the first quarter of 2014, down from 0.44% from the fourth quarter of 2013, and lowest since the first quarter of 2007
  • The 32 branches of NBT Bank's Pennstar division were rebranded in March. Now all of the Company's banking locations do business under the NBT Bank name

"We are once again pleased to report record net income and strong organic loan growth as we communicate our first quarter 2014 results," said NBT President and CEO Martin Dietrich. "As our quality team of financial professionals continues to promote NBT's unique brand of customer and community-focused banking, we remain attentive to asset quality, expense control and investing in technology and training in our efforts to enhance NBT's long-term value for our shareholders. We are also pleased to report that, with the rebranding of our Pennsylvania branches in March, all of our banking locations across our five-state footprint are now doing business as NBT Bank, creating operational efficiencies and enabling our customers to more easily identify us and fully access the range of financial services we offer."

Net interest income was $61.5 million for the first quarter of 2014, down slightly from the prior quarter, and up $9.4 million from the first quarter of 2013 primarily due to the acquisition of Alliance. FTE net interest margin was 3.63% for the three months ended March 31, 2014, up from 3.61% from the prior quarter, and down from 3.68% for the first quarter of 2013. Average interest earning assets were up $54.4 million, or 0.8%, for the first quarter of 2014 as compared to the prior quarter, driven primarily by organic loan production during the first quarter. Slight rate compression on earning assets continued to negatively impact net interest margin in the first quarter of 2014 as evidenced by decreasing loan yields from 4.54% for the fourth quarter of 2013 to 4.50% for the first quarter of 2014. Average interest bearing liabilities increased $42.5 million, or 0.8%, from the fourth quarter of 2013 to the first quarter of 2014. The rate compression on earning assets was offset by a decrease of 3 basis points in the rates paid on interest bearing liabilities in the first quarter of 2014 versus the prior quarter. This decrease was primarily driven by a decrease of 4 basis points in rates paid on deposits and lower time deposit balances.

Noninterest income for the three months ended March 31, 2014 was $26.3 million, up 3.9% from the prior quarter, and up 4.2% from the first quarter of 2013. The increase from the prior quarter was $1.0 million and was driven primarily by insurance and other financial services revenue, mostly due to an increase in contingent insurance revenue in the first quarter of 2014. The increase from the three months ended March 31, 2013 was due primarily to increases in trust and ATM and debit card fees, due in large part to the full quarter impact from Alliance in 2014.

Noninterest expense for the three months ended March 31, 2014 was $57.5 million, up 3.7% from the prior quarter. This increase from the prior quarter was due primarily to a 5.1% increase in salaries and employee benefits and an 18.3% increase in occupancy expenses mostly due to the harsh winter. Noninterest expense for the three months ended March 31, 2014 was down 5.3% from the first quarter of 2013 primarily due to merger expenses associated with the acquisition of Alliance. Excluding merger expenses totaling $10.7 million during the first quarter of 2013, noninterest expense was up 15.0% for the first quarter of 2014 as compared to the same period last year. This increase from the prior year was due primarily to the acquisition of Alliance expenses including occupancy, salaries and employee benefits, data processing, and equipment. The increase in salaries and benefits from the Alliance acquisition was partially offset by lower retirement plan expenses due mainly to plan asset performance and a previous plan amendment. Income tax expense for the three month period ended March 31, 2014 was $8.7 million, down slightly from $8.8 million from the prior quarter, and up from $3.4 million for the first quarter of 2013. The increase from the first quarter of 2013 is due primarily to the increase in pre-tax income during the first quarter of 2014 over the first quarter of 2013. The effective tax rate was 32.5% for the first quarter of 2014, 32.9% for the fourth quarter of 2013, and 30.5% for the first quarter of 2013.

Asset Quality

Net charge-offs were $3.6 million for the first quarter of 2014, down from $5.9 million for the fourth quarter of 2013, and down from $6.3 million for the first quarter of 2013. Net charge-offs to average loans for the first quarter of 2014 was 0.27%, compared to 0.44% for the fourth quarter of 2013 and 0.56% for the same period in 2013. NBT recorded a provision for loan losses of $3.6 million for the three months ended March 31, 2014, compared with $5.2 million for the fourth quarter of 2013 and $5.7 million for the first quarter of 2013.

Nonperforming loans to total loans was 0.99% at March 31, 2014, equivalent to December 31, 2013, and up from 0.83% at March 31, 2013. Past due loans as a percentage of total loans was 0.57% for the first quarter of 2014 as compared to 0.77% as of December 31, 2013, and 0.81% as of March 31, 2013.

The allowance for loan losses totaled $69.4 million at March 31, 2014, equivalent to December 31, 2013 and up from $68.7 million at March 31, 2013. The allowance for loan losses as a percentage of loans was 1.27% (1.51% excluding acquired loans with no related allowance recorded) at March 31, 2014, compared to 1.28% (1.55% excluding acquired loans with no related allowance recorded) at December 31, 2013 and 1.32% (1.69% excluding acquired loans with no related allowance recorded) at March 31, 2013.

Balance Sheet

Total assets were $7.8 billion at March 31, 2014, up $101.0 million or 1.3% from December 31, 2013. Loans were $5.5 billion at March 31, 2014, up $75.2 million from December 31, 2013, primarily due to strong organic loan growth during the first quarter of 2014. Total deposits were $6.1 billion at March 31, 2014, up $178.7 million from December 31, 2013. Stockholders' equity was $832.2 million, representing a total equity-to-total assets ratio of 10.73% at March 31, 2014, compared with $816.6 million or a total equity-to-total assets ratio of 10.67% at December 31, 2013.

Subsequent Event

On April 17, 2014, NBT Capital Corp., a wholly-owned subsidiary of NBT, sold its 20% ownership interest in Springstone Financial, LLC, which NBT originally acquired in exchange for a $3 million investment, to LendingClub Corporation as part of LendingClub's acquisition of all of the outstanding equity in Springstone. LendingClub paid the selling equityholders a total purchase price equal to $140 million in cash and preferred stock. Springstone provides affordable financing options for consumers seeking to finance private education and elective medical procedures through a network of over 14,000 schools and healthcare providers. In connection with the acquisition, NBT Bank and Springstone entered into an amended and restated program agreement pursuant to which NBT Bank will continue to participate in lending activities with respect to Springstone's financing operations. "The management of Springstone developed a very successful business, and we are pleased to have played a role in it," said NBT President and CEO Martin Dietrich. "We look forward to the opportunity to continue our relationship with Springstone as they grow with LendingClub Corporation and are engaged in discussions to further develop collaborative opportunities with LendingClub." NBT is exploring balance sheet strategies for optimal use of the proceeds from this transaction.

Stock Repurchase Program

The Company did not purchase shares of its common stock during the three month period ended March 31, 2014. As of March 31, 2014, there were 1,000,000 shares available for repurchase under a previously announced plan, which expires on December 31, 2014.
