Sussex Bancorp Declares Quarterly Cash Dividend and Announces Third Quarter Results for 2014

ROCKAWAY, N.J., Oct. 29, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Sussex Bancorp (the "Company") (Nasdaq:SBBX), the holding company for Sussex Bank (the "Bank") today announced reported net income of $592 thousand, or $0.13 per basic and diluted share, for the quarter ended September 30, 2014, as compared to a net income of $575 thousand, or $0.14 per basic and diluted share, for the same period last year. For the nine months ended September 30, 2014, the Company reported net income of $1.9 million, or $0.41 per basic and diluted share, as compared to net income of $807 thousand, or $0.23 per basic and diluted share, for the same period last year. Net income benefited from strong growth in the commercial loan portfolio, which increased $50.9 million or 18.0% at September 30, 2014 as compared to December 31, 2013, and declines of $2.1 million, or 54.0% in credit quality costs (provision for loan losses, loan collection costs and expenses and write-downs related to foreclosed real estate) for the nine months ended September 30, 2014, as compared to the same period in the prior year. During the third quarter of 2014, the Company resolved its largest non-performing loan, which contributed to the improvement in non-performing assets to total assets to 2.2% at September 30, 2014 from 3.1% from December 31, 2013. The Company also converted to a new core processing system and realized de-conversion and other costs related to the technology upgrade during the third quarter of 2014.

"Our strong organic growth in our commercial loan portfolio continued in the third quarter, which grew 18.0% for the first nine months of 2014, or approximately 24.0% on an annualized basis. The growth helped expand our net interest margin 11 basis points, as compared to the same period last year. This produced a 9.1% growth in our net interest income on a fully tax equivalent basis for the nine month period, as compared to the same period last year and drove the improvement in our reported earnings," said Anthony Labozzetta, President and Chief Executive Officer of Sussex Bank. Mr. Labozzetta also stated, "Our third quarter operating performance was impacted by a 9.6% increase in operating expenses, due in large part to costs related to our core system conversion, which are non-recurring in nature."

In addition, Mr. Labozzetta said, "In the third quarter we resolved our largest non-performing asset. As a result, we reduced our ratio of non-performing assets to total assets to 2.21%. Additionally, our credit related costs declined $2.1 million or 54.0% for the first nine months of 2014 as compared to the same period last year. The remaining non-performing assets are now comprised in large part of foreclosed or soon to be foreclosed real estate, which brings them closer to final resolution."

Opening of New Branches

During the third quarter of 2014, the Bank opened a new mini-branch at Heath Village in Hackettstown, New Jersey. In addition, the Bank currently has regulatory approvals for a new branch location in Astoria, New York, which is expected to open in the first quarter of 2015. "In the third quarter we opened our new mini-branch at Heath Village in Hackettstown and look forward to serving our customers at this new location. We are also excited about and look forward to the opening of a branch in Astoria, which will allow us to continue to penetrate into the metro New York market," said Mr. Labozzetta.

Declaration of Quarterly Dividend

The Company's Board of Directors declared a quarterly cash dividend of $0.03 per share, which is payable on December 1, 2014 to common shareholders of record as of the close of business on November 14, 2014.

Financial Performance

Net Income. For the quarter ended September 30, 2014, the Company reported net income of $592 thousand, or $0.13 per basic and diluted share, as compared to net income of $575 thousand, or $0.14 per basic and diluted share, for the same period last year. The increase in net income for the quarter ended September 30, 2014 was primarily due to increases in net interest income of $323 thousand and gain on securities transactions of $164 thousand. These increases were partially offset by an increase in non-interest expenses of $424 thousand, which was largely attributed to de-conversion and technology upgrade costs that occurred during the third quarter of 2014.

For the nine months ended September 30, 2014, the Company reported net income of $1.9 million, or $0.41 per basic and diluted share, as compared to net income of $807 thousand, or $0.23 per basic and diluted share, for the same period last year. The increase in net income for the nine months ended September 30, 2014 was largely due to a decrease in credit quality costs of $2.1 million, or 54.0%, and an increase in net interest income of $1.2 million, which were largely offset by increases in certain non-interest expenses. Further discussion on these increases is included in the non-interest expense section below.

Net Interest Income. Net interest income on a fully tax equivalent basis increased $311 thousand, or 7.2%, to $4.7 million for the third quarter of 2014, as compared to $4.3 million for the same period in 2013. The increase in net interest income was largely due to a $31.3 million, or 6.2%, increase in average interest earning assets, principally loans receivable, which increased $52.7 million, or 13.7%, and was partially offset by a decrease in the average balance on the securities portfolio of $25.9 million, or 23.1%. The aforementioned increase also benefited from a 3 basis point increase in the net interest margin to 3.47% for the third quarter of 2014, as compared to the same period last year. The increase in the net interest margin was mostly due to an improvement in asset mix, which resulted in an increase in the average rate paid on interest earning assets of 5 basis points to 4.09% for the third quarter of 2014 from 4.04% for the same period in 2013.

Net interest income on a fully tax equivalent basis increased $1.1 million, or 9.1%, to $13.7 million for the first nine months of 2014, as compared to $12.5 million for the same period in 2013. The increase in net interest income was largely due to a $28.7 million, or 5.8%, increase in average interest earning assets, principally loans receivable, which increased $54.2 million, or 14.8%, and was partially offset by a decrease in the average balance on the securities portfolio of $27.8 million, or 22.7%. The aforementioned increase also benefited from an 11 basis point increase in the net interest margin to 3.50% for the first nine months of 2014, as compared to the same period last year. The increase in the net interest margin was mostly due to an improvement in asset mix, which resulted in an increase in the average rate paid on interest earning assets of 9 basis points to 4.13% for the first nine months of 2014 from 4.04% for the same period in 2013.

Provision for Loan Losses. Provision for loan losses decreased $122 thousand, or 24.4%, to $378 thousand for the third quarter of 2014, as compared to $500 thousand for the same period in 2013.

Provision for loan losses decreased $1.1 million, or 47.4%, to $1.2 million for the first nine months of 2014, as compared to $2.3 million for the same period in 2013.

Non-interest Income. The Company reported an increase in non-interest income of $67 thousand, or 4.7%, to $1.5 million for the third quarter of 2014, as compared to the same period last year. The increase in non-interest income was largely due to an increase in gain on securities transactions of $164 thousand, which was partially offset by decreases in service fees on deposit accounts of $28 thousand and investment brokerage fees of $26 thousand.

The Company reported a decrease in non-interest income of $132 thousand, or 2.8%, to $4.6 million for the first nine months of 2014, as compared to the same period last year. The decrease in non-interest income was largely due to decreases in gains on securities transactions of $141 thousand, investment and brokerage fees of $57 thousand and service fees on deposit accounts of $56 thousand, which were partially offset by an increase in insurance commissions and fees of $165 thousand.

Non-interest Expense. The Company's non-interest expenses increased $424 thousand, or 9.6%, to $4.9 million for the third quarter of 2014, as compared to the same period last year. The increase for the third quarter of 2014, as compared to the same period in 2013, was largely due to increases in salaries and employee benefits expense of $244 thousand, data processing fees of $208 thousand, occupancy of $117 thousand and other expenses of $91 thousand, which were partially offset by a decrease in expenses and write-downs related to foreclosed real estate of $305 thousand. The increase in salaries and employee benefits expense was partly due to an increase in commercial lending staff.

The Company's non-interest expenses increased $362 thousand, or 2.6%, to $14.1 million for the first nine months of 2014, as compared to the same period last year. The increase for the first nine months of 2014, as compared to the same period in 2013, was largely due to increases in salaries and employee benefits expense of $547 thousand, data processing fees of $353 thousand, occupancy of $226 thousand and other expenses of $172 thousand, which were partially offset by a decrease in expenses and write-downs related to foreclosed real estate of $1.1 million. The increase in salaries and employee benefits expense was partly due to an increase in commercial lending staff.

Non-interest expenses for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2014 were affected by increases in salaries and employee benefits expense and data processing fees, which were related to a technology upgrade that occurred in the third quarter of 2014. These additional costs were incurred primarily due to additional staffing requirements, de-conversion expenses and other technology upgrade costs. The majority of these increases are not expected to recur in 2015; however, the Company does expect to incur some additional costs in the fourth quarter of 2014 as the remainder of the upgrade process is completed.

Financial Condition

At September 30, 2014, the Company's total assets were $568.0 million, an increase of $34.1 million, or 6.4%, as compared to total assets of $533.9 million at December 31, 2013. The increase in total assets was largely driven by net growth in total loans of $50.3 million, or 12.8%, which was partially offset by declines in the securities portfolio of $20.0 million, or 20.6%.

The Company saw strong loan growth as total loans receivable, net of unearned income, increased $50.3 million, or 12.8%, to $442.7 million at September 30, 2014, as compared to $392.4 million at December 31, 2013. The increase in loans was primarily in the commercial real estate portfolio, which increased $45.1 million, or 17.3%, to $305.8 million at September 30, 2014, as compared to $260.7 million at December 31, 2013, and in the commercial and industrial portfolio, which increased $3.1 million, or 20.1%, to $18.3 million at September 30, 2014, as compared to $15.2 million at December 31, 2013.

The Company's total deposits increased $24.2 million, or 5.6%, to $454.5 million at September 30, 2014, from $430.3 million at December 31, 2013. The increase in deposits was due to increases in both non-interest bearing deposits of $14.4 million, or 24.8%, and interest bearing deposits of $9.8 million, or 2.6%, for September 30, 2014, as compared to December 31, 2013.

At September 30, 2014, the Company's total stockholders' equity was $50.4 million, an increase of $4.0 million when compared to December 31, 2013. The increase was largely due to net income for the nine months ended September 30, 2014 and an improvement in accumulated other comprehensive income relating to a reduction in the net unrealized losses on available for sale securities. At September 30, 2014, the leverage, Tier I risk-based capital and total risk-based capital ratios for the Bank were 10.31%, 13.36% and 14.61%, 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 non-performing assets ("NPAs") continued to decline. Total problem assets (foreclosed real estate, criticized assets and classified assets) were down 21.8% from December 31, 2013, and the ratio of NPAs to total assets improved to 2.21% at September 30, 2014 from 3.10% at December 31, 2013. In addition, the ratio of non-accrual loans to total loans fell to 1.82% at September 30, 2014 from 3.03% at December 31, 2013.

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 $4.0 million, or 24.3%, to $12.5 million at September 30, 2014, as compared to $16.6 million at December 31, 2013. Non-accrual loans decreased $3.8 million, or 32.3%, to $8.1 million at September 30, 2014, as compared to $11.9 million at December 31, 2013. The top five non-accrual loan relationships total $4.8 million, which equates to 59.8% of total non-accrual loans and 38.4% of total NPAs at September 30, 2014. The remaining non-accrual loans have an average loan balance of $101 thousand. Loans past due 30 to 89 days decreased $822 thousand, or 22.4%, to $2.9 million at September 30, 2014, as compared to $3.7 million at December 31, 2013. The aforementioned decreases in NPAs and non-accrual loans were partially due to the sale of the Company's largest non-performing loan ($1.7 million) during the third quarter of 2014.

The Company continues to actively market its foreclosed real estate properties, which decreased $72 thousand to $2.9 million at September 30, 2014, as compared to $2.9 million at December 31, 2013. The decrease was primarily due to the sale of foreclosed real estate properties for $685 thousand and write-downs of $110 thousand, which were partially offset by additions of $715 thousand in new foreclosed real estate properties during 2014. At September 30, 2014, the Company's foreclosed real estate properties had an average value of approximately $317 thousand per property.

The allowance for loan losses increased $288 thousand, or 5.3%, to $5.7 million, or 1.29% of total loans, at September 30, 2014, compared to $5.4 million, or 1.38% of total loans, at December 31, 2013. The Company recorded $1.2 million in provision for loan losses, which was partly offset by $943 thousand in net charge-offs for the nine months ended September 30, 2014. The allowance for loan losses as a percentage of non-accrual loans increased to 70.9% at September 30, 2014 from 45.6% at December 31, 2013.
