Capital City Bank Group, Inc. Reports First Quarter 2015 Results

TALLAHASSEE, Fla., April 27, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Capital City Bank Group, Inc. (Nasdaq:CCBG) today reported net income of $1.0 million, or $0.06 per diluted share for the first quarter of 2015, compared to net income of $1.9 million, or $0.11 per diluted share for the fourth quarter of 2014, and net income of $3.8 million, or $0.22 per diluted share, for the first quarter of 2014.

HIGHLIGHTS

  • Loans grew 1.6% sequentially (6.3% annualized) and 4.1% over prior year
  • Strong residential mortgage loan sales, up 6.7% sequentially and 39.7% over prior year
  • 3.5% reduction in nonperforming assets and 9.4% decline in total credit costs from linked quarter
  • Seasonal Q1 spike in public funds balances negatively impacted net interest margin by 14 basis points
  • Operating costs well controlled with exception of pension plan expense which represented all of the increase over sequential quarter
  • Common equity tier 1 ratio of 12.56%, ~ two times in excess of regulatory well capitalized threshold

"Reporting growth for the fifth consecutive quarter, loans in the first quarter increased $22.7 million, or 6.3% (annualized), and our nonperforming assets declined to $50.6 million – a 3.5% reduction quarter over quarter," said William G. Smith, Jr., Chairman, President and CEO. "Activity in our ORE portfolio slowed during the first quarter. However, we believe our retail approach to the disposition of ORE properties continues to produce a better financial outcome for our shareowners, and I remain committed to this strategy. Credit costs declined during the quarter but were more than offset by higher operating expenses, which were driven primarily by an increase in pension costs. Our primary areas of focus continue to be growing loans, lowering our nonperforming assets and right-sizing our expense base. I remain encouraged by continued improvement in the Florida and Georgia economies and Capital City's year-over-year progress."

Compared to the fourth quarter of 2014, performance reflects lower net interest income of $0.5 million, noninterest income of $0.2 million, and higher noninterest expense of $1.1 million, partially offset by a lower loan loss provision of $0.3 million and income taxes of $0.5 million.

Compared to the first quarter of 2014, the decrease in earnings was due to higher noninterest expense of $1.0 million and higher income taxes of $2.1 million, partially offset by higher net interest income of $0.2 million, noninterest income of $0.1 million, and a $0.1 million decrease in the loan loss provision.

The Return on Average Assets was 0.15% and the Return on Average Equity was 1.45% for the first quarter of 2015, compared to 0.30% and 2.66%, respectively, for the fourth quarter of 2014, and 0.59% and 5.44%, respectively, for the first quarter in 2014.

Discussion of Operating Results

Tax equivalent net interest income for the first quarter of 2015 was $18.6 million compared to $19.1 million for the fourth quarter of 2014 and $18.4 million for the first quarter of 2014. The decrease in tax equivalent net interest income compared to the fourth quarter of 2014 was primarily attributable to two less calendar days and interest recoveries realized during the fourth quarter, partially offset by a favorable shift in our earning asset mix due to growth in the loan and investment portfolios. The increase in tax equivalent net interest income compared to the first quarter of 2014 also reflects a favorable shift in earning asset mix due to growth in the loan and investment portfolios as well as a slight reduction in interest expense. The lower interest expense is attributable to maturing FHLB advances and favorable repricing on most deposit products.

Pressure on net interest income continues primarily as a result of the low rate environment. Despite favorable volume variances in both the loan and investment portfolios, the low rate environment continues to negatively impact the loan yields and, going forward, will have minimal to no impact on our cost of funds. Increased lending competition in all markets has also unfavorably impacted the pricing for loans.

The net interest margin for the first quarter of 2015 was 3.27%, a decrease of 16 basis points over the fourth quarter of 2014 and a decline of two basis points from the first quarter of 2014. Compared to the fourth quarter of 2014, the decrease in the margin was primarily attributable to a higher level of earning assets reflective of the expected seasonal increase in public funds balances, which accounted for 14 of the 16 basis point reduction in the margin. The lower margin compared to the first quarter of 2014 was also due to a higher level of earning assets.

The provision for loan losses for the first quarter of 2015 was $0.3 million compared to $0.6 million for the fourth quarter of 2014 and $0.4 million for the first quarter of 2014. The reduction in the provision from both prior periods reflects favorable problem loan migration, lower loss content, and continued improvement in key credit metrics. Net charge-offs for the first quarter of 2015 totaled $1.7 million, or 0.49% (annualized) of average loans, compared to $2.2 million, or 0.61% (annualized), for the fourth quarter of 2014 and $1.3 million, or 0.39% (annualized), for the first quarter of 2014. At March 31, 2015, the allowance for loan losses was $16.1 million, or 1.10% of outstanding loans (net of overdrafts) and provided coverage of 96% of nonperforming loans compared to 1.22% and 105%, respectively, at December 31, 2014, and 1.57% and 64%, respectively, at March 31, 2014.

Noninterest income for the first quarter of 2015 totaled $12.8 million, a decrease of $0.2 million, or 1.6%, from the fourth quarter of 2014 attributable to lower deposit fees of $0.5 million that was partially offset by higher mortgage banking fees of $0.2 million and bank card fees of $0.1 million. The decrease in deposit fees was due to an expected lower utilization of our overdraft protection service during the first quarter as clients receive tax refunds and to a lesser extent two less processing days in the current quarter. The increase in mortgage banking fees reflects a pick-up in both new home purchase origination and refinancing as well as a higher margin realized on sold loans. The increase in bank card fees reflects higher card activity and spend volume by our clients. Compared to the first quarter of 2014, noninterest income increased $0.1 million, or 0.5%, reflective of a $0.4 million increase in mortgage banking fees and a $0.1 million increase in wealth management fees, partially offset by lower deposit fees of $0.3 million and data processing fees of $0.1 million. The increase in mortgage banking fees was driven by the same aforementioned factors affecting the variance from the sequential quarter. Wealth management fees increased due to higher trust fees for estate management and discretionary asset management. The decrease in deposit fees was due to lower overdraft fees reflective of lower utilization of our overdraft protection product generally due to improved financial management by our clients. The reduction in data processing fees is related to the loss of a government processing contract in 2014.

Noninterest expense for the first quarter of 2015 totaled $29.4 million, an increase of $1.1 million, or 3.8%, from the fourth quarter of 2014. The increase reflects higher compensation expense of $0.7 million, other real estate expense of $0.1 million, and other expense of $0.3 million. The increase in compensation expense reflects higher pension plan expense of $1.0 million and payroll taxes of $0.2 million, partially offset by lower stock compensation expense of $0.5 million. The increase in our pension plan expense is primarily attributable to the utilization of a lower discount rate in 2015 for determining plan liabilities reflective of a decrease in long-term bond interest rates. Revision to the mortality tables used to calculate pension liabilities also contributed to the increase, but to a lesser extent. The increase in payroll taxes reflects the reset of social security taxes. The decrease in stock compensation expense was due to the scaled up earnout achieved in the prior quarter related to 2014 performance that exceeded stock compensation plan goals. The expense for the first quarter of 2015 reflects the reset of our stock performance plans for the new year. Other real estate expense increased primarily due to a higher level of property carrying costs. Higher processing fees and professional fees drove the increase in other expense. Compared to the first quarter of 2014, noninterest expense increased $1.0 million, or 3.6%, attributable to higher compensation expense of $0.7 million, occupancy expense of $0.1 million, other real estate expense of $0.1 million, and other expense of $0.1 million. Higher pension plan expense of $0.7 million drove the increase in compensation expense reflective of the same unfavorable factors previously noted. The slight increase in occupancy expense was primarily due to higher building repairs and maintenance. Other real estate expense increased due to a slightly higher level of property valuation adjustments. Higher processing fees drove the increase in other expense.

We realized income tax expense of $0.7 million for the first quarter of 2015 compared to $1.2 million for the fourth quarter of 2014 and an income tax benefit of $1.4 million for the first quarter of 2014. Income taxes for the first quarter of 2014 were favorably impacted by a $2.2 million state tax benefit attributable to an adjustment in our reserve for uncertain tax positions associated with prior year matters.

Discussion of Financial Condition

Average earning assets were $2.306 billion for the first quarter of 2015, an increase of $93.7 million, or 4.2%, over the fourth quarter of 2014 and $38.2 million, or 1.7%, over the first quarter of 2014. The increase in earning assets over the fourth quarter of 2014 reflects a higher level of public funds. The increase in earning assets over the first quarter 2014 primarily reflects a higher level of noninterest bearing deposits. Additionally, growth in both the loan and investment portfolios led to a more favorable earning asset mix compared to both prior periods.

We maintained an average net overnight funds (deposits with banks plus fed funds sold less fed funds purchased) sold position of $302.4 million for the first quarter of 2015 compared to an average net overnight funds sold position of $288.6 million for the fourth quarter of 2014 and an average overnight funds sold position of $467.3 million for the first quarter of 2014. The increase in overnight funds compared to the fourth quarter of 2014 reflects higher public funds balances. The decrease relative to the first quarter of 2014 is primarily attributable to growth in both the loan and investment portfolios.

Although we have experienced loan growth in 2014 and into the first quarter of 2015, we continue to work on lowering the level of overnight funds by adding to our investment portfolio with short-duration, high quality securities and reducing the level of excess liquidity maintained by some of our higher balance deposit clients. We offer to our clients a fully-insured money market account which is provided by a third party and can serve as an alternative investment for some of our higher balance depositors while at the same time allowing us to maintain the account relationship. Until such time that attractive investment alternatives arise, we will continue to execute these strategies as well as seek other initiatives in an effort to better deploy our overnight fund balances.

Average loans increased $21.9 million, or 1.5%, over the fourth quarter of 2014 and $53.1 million, or 3.8%, over the first quarter of 2014. The improvement over both prior periods was primarily driven by growth in the consumer (indirect auto) loan portfolio, and to a lesser extent, the commercial and industrial loan portfolio.

Without compromising our credit standards or taking on inordinate interest rate risk, we have modified several lending programs in our business (commercial real estate and consumer portfolios) to try to mitigate the significant impact that consumer and business deleveraging is having on our portfolio. These programs, coupled with economic improvements in our anchor markets, have helped to increase overall production.

Nonperforming assets (nonaccrual loans and OREO) totaled $50.6 million at the end of the first quarter of 2015, a decrease of $1.8 million from the fourth quarter of 2014 and $28.0 million from the first quarter of 2014. Nonaccrual loans totaled $16.8 million at the end of the first quarter of 2015, comparable to the fourth quarter of 2014 and a decrease of $17.8 million from the first quarter of 2014. Nonaccrual loan additions in the first quarter of 2015 totaled $5.8 million compared to $5.8 million and $7.5 million for the fourth and first quarters of 2014, respectively. The balance of OREO totaled $33.8 million at the end of the first quarter of 2015, a decrease of $1.8 million and $10.2 million, respectively, from the fourth and first quarters of 2014. For the first quarter of 2015, we added properties totaling $1.7 million, sold properties totaling $2.8 million, and recorded valuation adjustments totaling $0.7 million. Nonperforming assets represented 1.88% of total assets at March 31, 2015 compared to 2.00% at December 31, 2014 and 2.98% at March 31, 2014.

Average total deposits were $2.163 billion for the first quarter of 2015, an increase of $86.0 million, or 4.1%, over the fourth quarter of 2014 and $38.4 million, or 1.8%, over the first quarter of 2014. The increase in deposits when compared to the fourth quarter of 2014 reflects higher public funds deposits and savings accounts, partially offset by declines in money markets and noninterest bearing deposits. The higher level of deposits when compared to the first quarter of 2014 is primarily attributable to increased balances of noninterest bearing, public NOW and savings accounts, partially offset by a decline in money market accounts and certificates of deposit. The seasonal inflows of public funds started in the fourth quarter of 2014 and are expected to be at or near their peak for this cycle, with balances declining into the fourth quarter of 2015.

Deposit levels remain strong and our mix of deposits continues to improve as higher cost certificates of deposit are replaced with lower rate non-maturity deposits and noninterest bearing demand accounts. Prudent pricing discipline will continue to be the key to managing our mix of deposits. Therefore, we do not attempt to compete with higher rate paying competitors for deposits.

When compared to the fourth quarter of 2014, average borrowings increased by $3.0 million attributable to higher repurchase agreement balances. When compared to the first quarter of 2014, average borrowings declined by $2.8 million, primarily due to FHLB advance payoffs/amortization, partially offset by higher levels of repurchase agreements.

Equity capital was $274.1 million as of March 31, 2015, compared to $272.5 million as of December 31, 2014 and $279.9 million as of March 31, 2014. Our leverage ratio was 10.73%, 10.99%, and 10.47%, respectively, for these periods. Further, our risk-adjusted capital ratio of 17.11% at March 31, 2015 compares to 17.76% at December 31, 2014, and 18.10% at March 31, 2014, and significantly exceeds the 10.0% threshold to be designated as "well-capitalized" under the risk-based regulatory guidelines. At March 31, 2015, our tangible common equity ratio was 7.26%, compared to 7.38% at December 31, 2014 and 7.66% at March 31, 2014. The seasonal inflow of public funds deposits drove assets higher for the first quarter and had an unfavorable impact on our leverage and tangible common equity ratios. Basel III capital standards became effective for the first quarter of 2015 reporting period and as such the risk weighting of assets and the treatment of certain capital elements have been revised in our capital ratios. Under these new requirements, we will begin publishing a new regulatory capital ratio, common equity tier 1, which was 12.56% at March 31, 2015, significantly exceeding the current regulatory "well capitalized" threshold of 6.50%.
