NORWICH, N.Y., April 27, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- NBT Bancorp Inc. (NBT) (Nasdaq:NBTB) reported net income for the three months ended March 31, 2015 of $18.2 million, up from $18.0 million from the prior year. Reported earnings per diluted share for the three months ended March 31, 2015 was $0.41, equivalent to the first quarter of 2014. Core net income for the three months ended March 31, 2015 was $18.2 million, down slightly from $18.4 million for the first quarter of 2014. Core diluted earnings per share for the three months ended March 31, 2015 was $0.41, as compared with $0.42 for the first quarter of 2014.

The reported results for the three months ended March 31, 2015 and 2014 contained items which the Company considers non-core, such as securities gains and other items not considered core to our operations.

First Quarter 2015 Highlights:

  • 2015 second quarter 5% dividend increase from $0.21 per share to $0.22 per share
  • Continued positive trends in asset quality indicators

    • Past due loans to total loans improved to 0.54% at March 31, 2015 from 0.69% at December 31, 2014
    • Net charge-offs to average loans improved to 0.34% for the first quarter of 2015 from 0.70% for the fourth quarter of 2014 and 0.41% for the 2014 year
  • Net interest margin remained stable at 3.60% for the first quarter of 2015 as compared with 3.61% for both the fourth quarter and full year of 2014

"Our results for the first quarter of 2015 represent another solid quarter for our company," said NBT President and CEO Martin Dietrich. "The Board's approval of a 5% increase to the second-quarter cash dividend is a testament to our continued strong performance and their confidence in the long-term value we are building for our shareholders. Sustained favorable trends in our asset quality indicators and our ability to maintain a stable net interest margin demonstrate our focus on the fundamentals of banking as we make ongoing strategic investments in our people, technology and new markets."

Net interest income was $62.2 million for the first quarter of 2015, down 2.9% from the previous quarter, and up 1.1% from the first quarter of 2014. FTE net interest margin was 3.60% for the three months ended March 31, 2015, down from 3.61% for the previous quarter, and down from 3.63% for the first quarter of 2014. Average interest earning assets were down slightly for the first quarter of 2015 as compared to the prior quarter, and up $130.2 million, or 1.9%, from the same period in 2014. The increase from the first quarter of 2014 was driven primarily by organic loan production during 2014. Rate compression on earning assets, which decreased from 3.92% during the fourth quarter of 2014 to 3.89% for the first quarter of 2015, contributed to the decrease in net interest income and FTE net interest margin from the fourth quarter of 2014 to the first quarter of 2015. This rate compression was driven by a 4 basis point ("bp") decrease in loan yields from the fourth quarter of 2014 to the first quarter of 2015. Average interest bearing liabilities decreased $42.3 million, or 0.8%, from the fourth quarter of 2014 to the first quarter of 2015, which was driven by a decrease in average short-term borrowings for the first quarter of 2015 and the continued migration of time deposits to lower cost savings and money market deposit accounts. The rates paid on interest bearing liabilities decreased by 2 bps over the same period and partially offset the aforementioned rate compression on earning assets. The rate compression on interest bearing liabilities from the fourth quarter of 2014 to the first quarter of 2015 was primarily driven by decreases in the rates paid on time deposits and savings accounts.

Noninterest income for the three months ended March 31, 2015 was $26.5 million, down $0.5 million or 1.9% from the prior quarter, and up $0.3 million or 1.0% from the first quarter of 2014. The decrease from the prior quarter was driven primarily by a decrease in service charges on deposit accounts stemming from a decrease in overdraft activity during the first quarter of 2015. In addition, trust revenue decreased $0.3 million or 7.2% from the fourth quarter of 2014 to the first quarter of 2015 due to termination fees recognized in the fourth quarter of 2014, and bank owned life insurance income decreased $0.3 million or 17.7% over the same period due to a decrease in death benefits in the first quarter of 2015. These decreases were partially offset by a $0.4 million, or 6%, increase in insurance and other financial services revenue in the first quarter of 2015 as compared with the fourth quarter of 2014. In addition, retirement plan administration fees were up $0.2 million, or 8%, for the first quarter of 2015 compared with the fourth quarter of 2014.

Noninterest expense for the three months ended March 31, 2015 was $57.7 million, up $1.0 million or 1.7% from the prior quarter and up $0.2 million from the first quarter of 2014. The increase from the prior quarter was due primarily to a $0.8 million or 15.4% increase in occupancy expenses from the fourth quarter of 2014 due to seasonal expenses. In addition, other operating expenses increased $0.3 million or 6.6% from the fourth quarter of 2014 with no significant drivers. Income tax expense for the three month period ended March 31, 2015 was $9.2 million, up $0.3 million from the prior quarter, and up $0.5 million from the first quarter of 2014. The increase from prior periods was due primarily to a lower level of tax exempt income as a percentage of total income during the first quarter of 2015. The effective tax rate was 33.6% for the first quarter of 2015, 32.5% for the fourth quarter of 2014, and 32.5% for the first quarter of 2014.

Asset Quality

Net charge-offs were $4.6 million for the three months ended March 31, 2015, down from $9.9 million for the prior quarter, and up from $3.6 million from the three months ended March 31, 2014. The decrease from the prior quarter was due primarily to a $3.0 million partial charge-off of an acquired commercial credit during the fourth quarter of 2014 which had been previously reserved for. NBT recorded a provision for loan losses of $3.6 million for the three months ended March 31, 2015, down from $6.9 million for the prior quarter, and equal to the provision for the first quarter of 2014. Provision expense for the first quarter of 2015 was less than charge-offs was due to the improvement in asset quality metrics. Net charge-offs to average loans for the first quarter of 2015 was 0.34%, compared to 0.70% for the fourth quarter of 2014 and 0.27% for the same period in 2014.

Nonperforming loans to total loans was 0.85% at March 31, 2015, up 3 bps from the prior quarter, and down 14 bps from March 31, 2014. Past due loans as a percentage of total loans were 0.54% at March 31, 2015 as compared to 0.69% at December 31, 2014, and 0.57% at March 31, 2014.

The allowance for loan losses totaled $65.4 million at March 31, 2015, compared to $66.4 million at December 31, 2014 and $69.4 million at March 31, 2014. The allowance for loan losses as a percentage of loans was 1.16% (1.29% excluding acquired loans with no related allowance recorded) at March 31, 2015, compared to 1.19% (1.36% excluding acquired loans with no related allowance recorded) at December 31, 2014 and 1.27% (1.51% excluding acquired loans with no related allowance recorded) at March 31, 2014. The decrease in the allowance for loan losses as a percentage of loans from the prior year was due primarily to continued positive trends with asset quality metrics in the originated loan portfolio.

Balance Sheet

Total assets were $7.9 billion at March 31, 2015, up $65.9 million, or 0.8% from December 31, 2014. Loans were $5.6 billion at March 31, 2015, up $27.8 million from December 31, 2014. Total deposits were $6.5 billion at March 31, 2015, up $179.8 million, or 2.9%, from December 31, 2014, primarily due to increases in municipal deposits.
