NBT Bancorp Inc. Announces Reported Net Income of $10.9 Million and Record Core Net Income of $19.8 Million for the Third Quarter of 2014; Declares Cash Dividend

NORWICH, N.Y., Oct. 27, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- NBT Bancorp Inc. (NBT) (Nasdaq:NBTB) reported net income for the three months ended September 30, 2014 was $10.9 million, down from $27.6 million for the previous quarter, and down from $19.3 million for the same period last year. Reported net income for the three months ended September 30, 2014 included prepayment penalties totaling $8.8 million (after taxes) related to our previously reported long-term debt restructure strategy. Reported net income for the previous quarter ended June 30, 2014 included an $11.2 million net gain (after taxes and related incentive compensation) on the sale of our ownership interest in Springstone LLC ("Springstone"), partially offset by prepayment penalties totaling $2.9 million (after taxes) related to our long-term debt restructure strategy. Reported earnings per diluted share for the three months ended September 30, 2014 was $0.25 as compared to $0.62 for the previous quarter and $0.44 for the same period in 2013.

Core net income for the three months ended September 30, 2014 was $19.8 million, up 3.8% from $19.1 million for the previous quarter and up 2.3% from $19.4 million for the same period in 2013. Core diluted earnings per share for the three months ended September 30, 2014 was $0.45, up from $0.43 for the previous quarter and up from $0.44 for the same period in 2013.

Reported net income for the nine months ended September 30, 2014 was $56.6 million, up from $43.8 million for the same period last year, which included the aforementioned net Springstone gain and long-term prepayment penalties in 2014 and approximately $12.3 million in merger-related expenses in 2013. Reported earnings per diluted share for the nine months ended September 30, 2014 was $1.28 as compared to $1.05 for the same period in 2013.

Core net income for the nine months ended September 30, 2014 was $57.3 million, up 11.3% from $51.5 million for the same period in 2013. Core diluted earnings per share for the nine months ended September 30, 2014 was $1.29, up from $1.23 for the same period in 2013.

The reported results for the third quarter and first nine months of 2014 and 2013 both contained items which the Company considers non-core, such as gain on the sale of the Springstone equity investment, long-term debt restructure prepayment penalties, merger expenses, securities gains, and other items not considered core to our operations.

Third Quarter 2014 Highlights:

  • Core net income of $19.8 million for the third quarter of 2014 is the highest in the Company's history
  • Net interest margin was 3.61% for the third quarter of 2014, up 1 basis point from the linked quarter as we began to realize the benefit of the debt restructure strategy completed during the third quarter
  • Completed previously disclosed long-term borrowings restructure strategy, resulting in $13.3 million in gross prepayment penalties (non-core) recognized in the third quarter of 2014 and lowered the cost of the restructured long-term funding by approximately 200 basis points
  • 9% average year to date organic retail demand deposit growth

"We are extremely pleased to report that we achieved record core net income during the third quarter of 2014," said NBT President and CEO Martin Dietrich. "We remain focused on our customers and our opportunities to promote organic growth as we continue to expand in new markets like New Hampshire and enhance the service we provide across our footprint as we deploy new technology like enhanced deposit functionality at our ATMs and through mobile deposit services. Our efforts to manage our balance sheet strategically and with a long-term focus are also essential to our efforts to continue to create long-term value for our shareholders."

Net interest income was $63.8 million for the third quarter of 2014, up 1.9% from the previous quarter, and up 2.5% from the same period last year. Fully taxable equivalent ("FTE") net interest margin was 3.61% for the three months ended September 30, 2014, up from 3.60% from the prior quarter, and down from 3.65% for the third quarter of 2013. Average interest earning assets were up $44.0 million, or 0.6%, for the third quarter of 2014 as compared to the prior quarter, driven primarily by organic loan production. The increase in average interest earning assets was partially offset by slight rate compression on earning assets, which decreased from 3.94% during the second quarter of 2014 to 3.91% for the third quarter of 2014. This rate compression was driven primarily by decreasing loan yields from 4.42% for the second quarter of 2014 to 4.38% for the third quarter of 2014. As a result of the increase in average earning assets, interest income was up 1.0% for the third quarter of 2014 as compared to the prior quarter. Average interest bearing liabilities decreased $32.9 million, or 0.6%, from the second quarter of 2014 to the third quarter of 2014. The rates paid on interest bearing liabilities decreased by 4 basis points from the second quarter of 2014 to the third quarter of 2014. This decrease was primarily driven by a 46 basis point decrease in the rate paid on long-term debt resulting from the aforementioned debt restructuring completed in the third quarter of 2014. The decrease in average balances combined with the decrease in the rates paid on interest bearing liabilities resulted in an 8.7% decrease in interest expense for the third quarter of 2014 as compared to the prior quarter.

Net interest income was $187.9 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2014, up 6.7% from the same period in 2013. FTE net interest margin was 3.61% for the nine months ended September 30, 2014, down from 3.67% from the nine months ended September 30, 2013. Average interest earning assets were up $535.2 million, or 8.2%, for the nine months ended September 30, 2014 as compared to the same period in 2013. This increase was driven primarily by the acquisition of Alliance Financial Corporation ("Alliance") in March 2013 as well as organic loan production during the past several quarters. The increase in average interest earning assets was partially offset by rate compression on earning assets, as their yield decreased from 4.16% during the nine months ended September 30, 2013 to 3.95% for the nine months ended September 30, 2014. This rate compression was driven primarily by decreasing loan yields from 4.75% for the nine months ended 2013 to 4.43% for the nine months ended September 30, 2014. As a result of the increase in average earning assets, interest income was up 3.1% for the nine months ended September 30, 2014 as compared to the same period in 2013. Average interest bearing liabilities increased $282.3 million, or 5.8%, for the first nine months of 2014 as compared to the same period in 2013. This increase was due primarily to an increase in deposits resulting from organic deposit growth as well as the aforementioned acquisition of Alliance. The rates paid on interest bearing liabilities for the first nine months of 2014 decreased by 18 basis points from the first nine months of 2013. This decrease was primarily driven by a decrease of 10 basis points in rates paid on deposits from improved funding mix as well as a 55 basis point decrease in the rate paid on long-term debt due primarily to maturity of long-term debt in the prior year, as well as the aforementioned debt restructuring in the second and third quarters of 2014.

Noninterest income for the three months ended September 30, 2014 was $26.7 million, down $19.4 million from the previous quarter, and down $0.5 million from the same period in 2013. The decrease from the prior quarter was primarily driven by a $19.4 million gain from the previously disclosed sale of our ownership interest in Springstone recorded in the second quarter of 2014. Excluding this gain, noninterest income for the three months ended September 30, 2014 was up $0.1 million from the previous quarter.

Noninterest income for the nine months ended September 30, 2014 was $99.0 million, up $21.1 million, or 27.0%, from the same period in 2013. The increase from 2013 was primarily driven by the aforementioned $19.4 million gain recorded in the second quarter of 2014. Excluding this gain, noninterest income for the nine months ended September 30, 2014 was $79.6 million, up $1.7 million, or 2.1%, from the same period in 2013. This increase from 2013 was due primarily to increases in trust and ATM and debit card fees, due in large part to the full impact from Alliance in 2014. These increases were partially offset by decreases in service charges on deposit accounts and net securities gains for the first nine months of 2014 as compared with the same period in 2013. The decrease in service charges on deposit accounts from the prior year was due primarily to lower nonsufficient funds fees recorded during the first nine months of 2014 due to changes in customer behavior, improving macroeconomic conditions, and continued customer outreach and education.

Noninterest expense for the three months ended September 30, 2014 was $69.1 million, up $6.3 million from the previous quarter, and up $12.8 million from the same period in 2013. This increase from the prior quarter and 2013 was due primarily to $13.3 million of prepayment penalties from the aforementioned strategic long-term debt restructuring in the third quarter of 2014 as compared with $4.6 million in prepayment penalties recorded during the second quarter of 2014. Excluding these prepayment penalties, noninterest expense for the three months ended September 30, 2014 was $55.7 million, down $2.5 million, or 4.2% from the previous quarter, and down $0.6 million, or 1.0%, from the same period in 2013. The decrease from the previous quarter was due primarily to a $2.2 million decrease in salaries and employee benefits driven by $2.5 million increase in incentive compensation related to the Springstone transaction recorded in the second quarter of 2014.

Noninterest expense for the nine months ended September 30, 2014 was $189.3 million, up $15.9 million from the same period in 2013. Excluding the $17.9 million prepayment penalties in 2014 and the merger related expenses totaling $12.3 million in the first nine months of 2013, noninterest expense for the nine months ended September 30, 2014 was $171.4 million, up $10.3 million, or 6.4% from the same period in 2013. This increase from the nine months ended September 30, 2013 was due primarily to 2014 including the full nine months of Alliance expenses including occupancy, salaries and employee benefits, data processing, professional fees, and equipment. In addition, the increase in salaries and benefits in 2014 included incremental incentive compensation related to the Springstone transaction, partially offset by lower retirement plan expenses due mainly to plan asset performance and a previous plan amendment.

The effective tax rate was 33.8% for the third quarter of 2014, 33.7% for the second quarter of 2014, and 31.0% for the third quarter of 2013. The effective tax rate was 33.4% for the nine months ended September 30, 2014, as compared to 30.7% for the first nine months of 2013. The increases in the effective tax rate for the three and nine month periods ending September 30, 2014 were primarily due to a higher level of taxable income as a percentage of total income as compared to the same periods in 2013.
