  • Average interest-earning assets increased $220.7 million year-over-year as a result of organic loan growth and the fourth quarter 2013 branch acquisition.
  • Total loans increased $88.5 million, or 8.9%, from $995.9 million at December 31, 2013 to $1.084 billion at June 30, 2014. This increase was primarily attributable to growth of $62.7 million, or 12.1%, in commercial loans and $27.2 million, or 9.7%, in consumer loans.
  • Non-performing assets to total assets ratio was 0.55% at June 30, 2014 compared with 0.64% at June 30, 2013.
  • Book value per share was $30.28 at June 30, 2014 compared with $28.47 at June 30, 2013, an increase of $1.81, or 6.4%. Tangible book value per share was $24.40 at June 30, 2014 compared with $22.78 at June 30, 2013, an increase of $1.62, or 7.1%.

Ronald M. Bentley, President and CEO stated, "As expected, we continued to experience net interest margin compression during the second quarter of 2014. In an effort to combat margin compression, we organically grew our loan portfolio by $88.5 million, primarily in commercial and consumer loans, during the first six months of 2014. At the same time we increased deposits, primarily in money market and demand deposit accounts, $42.2 million, or 3.3%. As we continue to channel deposits from the acquired branch offices into loans, we expect to realize increases in both net interest income and earnings."

Summary:

Chemung Financial Corporation reported net income of $1.9 million for the second quarter of 2014, a decrease of $0.8 million, or 27.3%, compared with $2.7 million for the same period in the prior year. Earnings per share for the second quarter of 2014 totaled $0.41, compared with $0.57 for the same period in the prior year. Return on average assets and return on average equity for the second quarter of 2014 were 0.51% and 5.44%, respectively, compared with 0.84% and 7.92%, respectively, for the same period in the prior year.

Core net income for the second quarter of 2014 was $1.6 million, or $0.35 per share, compared with $2.7 million, or $0.57 per share, for the same period in the prior year. Core net income for the current quarter excluded $0.5 million in net gain on securities transactions and less than $0.1 million in acquisition expenses. The core net income for the second quarter of 2013 was the same as reported net income. The decrease in core net income was due primarily to increases of $2.2 million in non-interest expense and $0.7 million in provision for loan losses. These items were partially offset by increases of $0.7 million in net interest income and $0.4 million in non-interest income, and a reduction of $0.6 million in income taxes. The majority of the increase in non-interest expense was due to operating expenses directly related to the branches acquired in the fourth quarter of 2013. Core return on average assets and core return on average equity for the second quarter of 2014 were 0.43% and 4.59%, respectively, compared with 0.84% and 7.92%, respectively, for the same period in the prior year.

Net income of $1.9 million for the current quarter ended June 30, 2014 represents a decrease of $0.2 million, or 6.5%, from net income of $2.1 million for the preceding quarter ended March 31, 2014. The decrease in earnings was due primarily to increases of $0.5 million in the provision for loan losses and $0.2 million in non-interest expense. These items were partially offset by $0.5 million in net gain on securities transactions. Earnings per share for the current quarter totaled $0.41 compared with $0.44 for the preceding quarter. Return on average assets and return on average equity for the current quarter were 0.51% and 5.44%, respectively, compared with 0.56% and 5.93%, respectively, for the preceding quarter.

Net income for the six months ended June 30, 2014 was $4.0 million, a decrease of $1.1 million, or 21.2%, compared with $5.1 million for the six months ended June 30, 2013. Earnings per share for the six months ended June 30, 2014 was $0.85, compared with $1.09 for the six months ended June 30, 2013. Return on average assets and return on average equity for the six months ended June 30, 2014 were 0.54% and 5.68%, respectively, compared with 0.81% and 7.65%, respectively, for the same period in the prior year.

Core net income for the six months ended June 30, 2014 was $3.7 million, or $0.80 per share, compared with $5.1 million, or $1.09 per share, for the six months ended June 30, 2013. The current year core net income excluded pre-tax items of $0.5 million in net gain on securities transactions and $0.1 million in acquisition expenses. The core net income for the six months ended June 30, 2013 was the same as reported net income. The decrease in core net income was due primarily to increases of $3.7 million in non-interest expense and $0.9 million in provision for loan losses. These items were partially offset by increases of $1.1 million in net interest income and $1.4 million in non-interest income, and a reduction of $0.8 million in income taxes. The majority of the increase in non-interest expense was due to operating expenses directly related to the branches acquired in the fourth quarter of 2013. Core return on average assets and core return on average equity for the six months ended June 30, 2014 were 0.50% and 5.33%, respectively, compared with 0.81% and 7.65%, respectively, for the same period in the prior year.

Net Interest Income:

Net interest income for the second quarter of 2014 totaled $12.1 million compared with $11.3 million for the same period in the prior year, an increase of $0.8 million, or 6.6%. Fully taxable equivalent net interest margin was 3.51% for the second quarter of 2014 compared with 3.93% for the same period in the prior year. The decline in net interest margin was due in part to a 51 basis point decrease in the yield on interest-earning assets, partially offset by an 11 basis point decline in the cost of funds and an increase of $226.3 million in average interest-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 $12.0 million for the preceding quarter ended March 31, 2014, an increase of $0.1 million, or 0.3%. Fully taxable equivalent net interest margin was 3.51% for the current quarter compared with 3.58% for the preceding quarter. The decline in net interest margin was due in part to an eight basis point decrease in the yield on interest-earnings assets, partially offset by a one basis point decline in the cost of funds and an increase of $18.6 million in average interest-earning assets.

Net interest income for the six months ended June 30, 2014 totaled $24.1 million compared with $23.0 million for the prior year, an increase of $1.1 million, or 4.6%. Fully taxable equivalent net interest margin was 3.55% for the six months ended June 30, 2014 compared with 4.04% for the same period in the prior year. The increase in net interest income was due to an increase of $220.7 million in average interest-earning assets and a 13 basis point decline in the cost of funds, partially offset by a 58 basis point decrease in the yield on interest-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 second quarter of 2014 was $5.4 million compared with $5.0 million for the preceding quarter ended March 31, 2014 and $4.5 million for the second quarter in the prior year. The increase from the preceding quarter was due primarily to a $0.5 million net gain on securities transactions. The increase from the year-ago quarter was due primarily to the net gain on securities transactions and increases of $0.2 million in service charges on deposit accounts and $0.1 million in Wealth Management Group fee income.

Non-interest income for the six months ended June 30, 2014 was $10.4 million compared with $8.5 million for the prior year, an increase of $1.9 million, or 22.0%. The increase was due primarily to a $0.5 million net gain on securities transactions, increases of $0.4 million in service charges on deposit accounts and $0.2 million in Wealth Management Group fee income, and a gain of $0.5 million from the liquidation of the Corporation's investment in a pool of trust preferred securities.

Non-Interest Expense:

Non-interest expense for the second quarter of 2014 was $13.6 million compared with $11.4 million for the prior year, an increase of $2.2 million, or 19.2%. The increase was due primarily to increases of $0.6 million in salaries and wages, $0.3 million in occupancy expense, $0.3 million in data processing expense and $0.2 million in professional fees. The majority of the increase in non-interest expense was due to operating expenses directly related to the branches acquired in the fourth quarter of 2013.

Non-interest expense for the current quarter was $13.6 million compared with $13.3 million for the preceding quarter ended March 31, 2014, an increase of $0.3 million, or 1.8%. The increase was due primarily to increases of $0.2 million in professional fees and $0.2 million in health care costs.

Non-interest expense for the six months ended June 30, 2014 was $26.9 million compared with $23.1 million for the prior year, an increase of $3.8 million, or 16.5%. The increase was due primarily to increases of $0.9 million in salaries and wages, $0.8 million in occupancy expense, $0.7 million in data processing expense, $0.3 million in furniture and equipment expense, $0.2 million in amortization of intangible assets and $0.4 million in other non-interest expense. The majority of the increase in non-interest expense was due to operating expenses directly related to the branches acquired in the fourth quarter of 2013.

Asset Quality:

Non-performing loans totaled $7.7 million at June 30, 2014, or 0.71% of total loans, compared with $7.5 million, or 0.80%, at June 30, 2013. The increase in non-performing loans at June 30, 2014 was primarily in the residential mortgage segment of the loan portfolio. Non-performing assets, which are comprised of non-performing loans and other real estate owned, was 0.55% of total assets, or $8.3 million at June 30, 2014, compared with 0.64%, or $8.1 million, at June 30, 2013. The Corporation's peer group average for the ratio of non-performing assets to total assets was 1.34% at March 31, 2014 (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 second quarter of 2014 was $1.1 million compared with $0.6 million for the preceding quarter ended March 31, 2014, and $0.5 million for the same period in the prior year. The increase in the provision for loan losses from the preceding and prior year quarters was due primarily to the establishment of $0.6 million in additional specific reserves on five acquired commercial loans and growth in the loan portfolio. Net charge-offs for the current quarter were $0.6 million compared with $0.3 million for the preceding quarter and net recoveries of less than $0.1 million for the same period in the prior year.

The provision for loan losses for the six months ended June 30, 2014 was $1.7 million compared with $0.9 million for the same period in the prior year. The increase in the provision for loans losses was due to the same items as described above for the current quarter. Net charges-offs for the six months ended June 30, 2014 were $0.9 million compared with net recoveries of less than $0.1 million for the same period in the prior year.

At June 30, 2014 the allowance for loan losses was $13.6 million, compared with $11.3 million at June 30, 2013. The allowance for loan losses was 176.76% of non-performing loans at June 30, 2014, compared with 151.58% at June 30, 2013. The ratio of the allowance for loan losses to total loans was 1.26% at June 30, 2014, compared with 1.21% at June 30, 2013.

The increase in portfolio loans was due to strong growth of $103.2 million in commercial loans and $50.6 million in consumer loans.

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.
