Beneficial Bancorp, Inc. Announces Third Quarter Results

PHILADELPHIA, Oct. 22, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Beneficial Bancorp, Inc. ("Beneficial") (NASDAQ:BNCL), the parent company of Beneficial Bank (the "Bank"), today announced its financial results for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2015. Beneficial recorded net income of $5.8 million and $18.1 million, or $0.07 and $0.23 per diluted share, for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2015, respectively, compared to net income of $6.5 million and $13.6 million, or $0.08 and $0.17 per diluted share, for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2014, respectively. The increase in net income for the nine months ended September 30, 2015 compared to the same period a year ago was primarily due to an increase in net interest income as a result of deploying a portion of the proceeds from the Bank's second step conversion, which was completed in January 2015, improving asset quality which resulted in lower provisions for loan losses, and continued management of expense levels.

Highlights for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2015 are as follows:

  • Net income increased $4.5 million, or 33.7%, for the nine months ended September 30, 2015 compared to the same period in 2014.
  • Net interest income increased $4.3 million to $92.5 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2015 compared to $88.2 million for the same period in 2014 primarily due to the deployment of a portion of the second step conversion proceeds into the loan portfolio and lower deposit and borrowing costs.
  • Our net interest margin remained stable at 2.82% for the third quarter of 2015 compared to 2.83% for the second quarter of 2015.
  • Consistent asset quality and low net loan charge-offs during the third quarter of 2015 resulted in no provision for loan losses during the three months ended September 30, 2015. Our allowance for loan losses totaled $47.7 million, or 1.73% of total loans and 126.33% of non-performing loans at September 30, 2015, compared to $47.8 million, or 1.76% of total loans and 124.87% of non-performing loans at June 30, 2015.
  • On a linked quarter basis, our loan portfolio grew $47.8 million (7.1% annualized growth) as a result of increases in commercial real estate and residential real estate loans.
  • For the nine months ended September 30, 2015, our loan portfolio increased $334.6 million, or 13.8%, primarily due to purchases of multi-family and residential loans, as well as organic growth primarily in our commercial loan portfolio.
  • Core deposits remained stable at $2.7 billion at September 30, 2015 and December 31, 2014, excluding the second-step conversion proceeds, despite $48.3 million in planned decreases in higher-cost, non-relationship-based municipal accounts during the nine months ended September 30, 2015.
  • Following the second-step conversion, our capital levels increased and continue to remain strong with tangible capital to tangible assets totaling 21.40% at September 30, 2015 compared to 21.14% at June 30, 2015 and 10.44% at December 31, 2014.
  • Tangible book value per share totaled $11.89 at September 30, 2015.
  • As announced in a separate press release, on October 21, 2015, Beneficial entered into a Stock Purchase agreement to acquire Conestoga Bancorp, Inc.'s ownership interest in Conestoga Bank.

"We are pleased with our performance during the quarter," said Gerard Cuddy, Beneficial's President and CEO. "Continued deployment of the second step conversion proceeds though growth of our loan portfolio has improved our balance sheet mix and increased our net interest income levels. We have made progress improving our earnings during the quarter and our asset quality metrics remain strong. Our focus remains on employee engagement, a superior customer experience, prudent capital management and organic growth to continue to improve the financial performance of our organization. We continue to carefully monitor regional economic indicators and their potential impact on future growth. We remain committed to our customers by delivering an education-based experience through The Beneficial Conversation and have made it our mission to always help our customers do the right thing financially."

Balance Sheet

Total assets decreased $23.4 million, or 0.5%, to $4.73 billion at September 30, 2015 compared to $4.75 billion at December 31, 2014. Cash and cash equivalents decreased $264.0 million to $270.0 million at September 30, 2015 from $534.0 million at December 31, 2014. The decrease in cash and cash equivalents was primarily driven by the deployment of a portion of the second step conversion proceeds through participations in portfolios of multi-family loans and purchases of residential real estate loans during the year as well as organic loan growth.

Investments decreased $86.1 million, or 5.8%, to $1.41 billion at September 30, 2015 compared to $1.49 billion at December 31, 2014. We continue to focus on maintaining a high quality investment portfolio that provides a steady stream of cash flows both in the current and in rising interest rate environments. We are also focused on improving our balance sheet mix by reducing the percentage of our assets in cash and investments and growing our loan portfolio.

Loans increased $334.6 million, or 13.8%, to $2.76 billion at September 30, 2015 from $2.42 billion at December 31, 2014. The increase was primarily due to $231.0 million of participations in portfolios of multi-family loans and the purchase of $40.6 million of residential real estate loans. The remaining increase was due to organic growth in our commercial real estate and commercial business loans, which include shared national credits.

Deposits decreased $526.3 million, or 13.6%, to $3.35 billion at September 30, 2015 from $3.88 billion at December 31, 2014. Deposits at December 31, 2014 included $482.1 million of subscription funds held in deposit accounts in connection with the second-step conversion offering that were reclassified into stockholders' equity in the first quarter of 2015. Excluding the $482.1 million of subscription funds, deposits decreased $44.2 million during the nine months ended September 30, 2015. The $44.2 million decrease in deposits during the nine months ended September 30, 2015 was primarily due to a $48.3 million decrease in municipal deposits and a $42.2 million decrease in time deposits, both of which resulted from our planned run-off of higher-cost, non-relationship-based accounts, partially offset by increases in interest and non-interest bearing checking deposits.

Stockholders' equity increased $500.9 million, or 82.0%, to $1.11 billion at September 30, 2015 from $610.9 million at December 31, 2014. The increase in stockholders' equity was primarily due to net proceeds received in connection with the completion of the second-step conversion during the first quarter of 2015.

Net Interest Income

For the three months ended September 30, 2015, net interest income was $31.2 million, an increase of $1.7 million, or 5.9%, from the three months ended September 30, 2014. The increase in net interest income was primarily due to higher interest earning assets as a result of the second-step conversion proceeds. During 2015, these proceeds were partially utilized to increase the loan portfolio, which resulted in an increase in the average balance of loans. Net interest income was also positively impacted by a reduction in the average balance of interest bearing liabilities, primarily due to reductions in higher-cost time deposits and borrowings. The net interest margin totaled 2.82% for the three months ended September 30, 2015 as compared to 2.89% for the same period in 2014. Net interest margin included 4 basis points and 8 basis points for the quarter ended September 30, 2015 and 2014, respectively, related to loan recoveries, prepayments and adjustments. The decrease in the net interest margin for the three months ended September 30, 2015 was primarily due to a decrease in the yield on loans partially offset by a reduction in the average cost of liabilities. We expect that the continued low interest rate environment will put pressure on the net interest margin in future periods but we are focused on growing our loan portfolio and improving our balance sheet mix to help stabilize our net interest margin.

For the nine months ended September 30, 2015, net interest income was $92.5 million, an increase of $4.3 million, or 4.9%, from the nine months ended September 30, 2014. The increase in net interest income was primarily due to higher interest earning assets as a result of the second-step conversion proceeds. During 2015, these proceeds were utilized to increase the loan portfolio, which resulted in an increase in the average balance of loans. Net interest income was also positively impacted by a reduction in the average balance of interest bearing liabilities, primarily due to a $146.6 million decrease in the average balance of municipal deposits and a $60.0 million decrease in the average balance of borrowings. Our net interest margin decreased to 2.80% for the nine months ended September 30, 2015 from 2.84% for the same period in 2014.

Non-interest Income

For the three months ended September 30, 2015, non-interest income totaled $5.8 million, a decrease of $1.4 million, or 19.1%, from the three months ended September 30, 2014. The decrease was primarily due to a $1.6 million net gain recorded during the three months ended September 30, 2014 on the sale of non-performing commercial loans held for sale and a $333 thousand decline in the gain on the sale of investment securities, partially offset by a $504 thousand increase in limited partnership income.

For the nine months ended September 30, 2015, non-interest income totaled $18.6 million, a decrease of $520 thousand, or 2.7%, from the nine months ended September 30, 2014. The decrease was primarily due to a $1.6 million net gain recorded during the nine months ended September 30, 2014 on the sale of non-performing commercial loans held for sale and a $639 thousand decrease in the net gain on the sale of investment securities. These decreases were partially offset by an increase of $1.5 million in limited partnership income and $628 thousand in foreign ATM fees.

Non-interest Expense

For the three months ended September 30, 2015, non-interest expense totaled $28.3 million, a decrease of $755 thousand, or 2.6%, from the three months ended September 30, 2014. The decrease in non-interest expense was primarily driven by a $321 thousand decrease in classified loan and other real estate owned related expenses due to improved asset quality and a $438 thousand decrease in debit card rewards expense due to changes in the program parameters.

For the nine months ended September 30, 2015, non-interest expense remained relatively consistent at $88.8 million, a decrease of $715 thousand, or 0.8%, from the nine months ended September 30, 2014. The slight decrease in non-interest expense was primarily driven by a $1.9 million increase in salaries and employee benefits due to merit increases and other retirement benefits, a $956 thousand increase in marketing expenses due to current year initiatives to continue rebranding and drive future growth and a $291 thousand increase in professional fees. These increases were partially offset by a $1.2 million decrease in occupancy expenses related to our headquarters move in the first quarter of 2014, a $1.1 million decrease in debit card rewards expense due to changes in the program parameters, a $697 thousand decrease in FDIC insurance expense due to lower assessments, and a $200 thousand decrease in classified loan and other real estate owned related expenses.

Income Taxes

For the three months ended September 30, 2015, we recorded a provision for income taxes of $2.9 million, reflecting an effective tax rate of 32.9%, compared to a provision for income taxes of $2.6 million, reflecting an effective tax rate of 28.7%, for the three months ended September 30, 2014. For the nine months ended September 30, 2015, we recorded a provision for income taxes of $7.8 million, reflecting an effective tax rate of 30.1%, compared to a provision for income taxes of $4.1 million, reflecting an effective tax rate of 23.0%, for the nine months ended September 30, 2014. The increase in income tax expense and the effective tax rate during these periods is due to increased profitability levels and a higher ratio of taxable income compared to tax exempt income for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2015 as compared to the same periods in 2014. The effective tax rates differ from the statutory rate of 35% principally because of tax-exempt investments, non-taxable income related to bank-owned life insurance and tax credits received on affordable housing partnerships. These tax credits relate to investments maintained by the Bank as a limited partner in partnerships that sponsor affordable housing projects utilizing low-income housing credits pursuant to Section 42 of the Internal Revenue Code.

Asset Quality

Asset quality metrics continued to improve as non-performing loans, excluding government guaranteed student loans, decreased to $12.6 million at September 30, 2015, compared to $14.6 million at December 31, 2014 and $14.4 million at September 30, 2014. The $1.8 million, or 12.8%, decrease from September 30, 2014 in non-performing loans was the result of our continued work out of non-performing assets.

As a result of the stabilization in our asset quality metrics and low net charge-offs recorded during the third quarter of 2015, we recorded no provision for loan losses for the three months ended September 30, 2015 compared to recording a $1.6 million negative provision for loan losses for the three months ended September 30, 2014. Net charge-offs totaled $118 thousand during the three months ended September 30, 2015 compared to net recoveries of $640 thousand during the three months ended September 30, 2014.

At September 30, 2015, the Bank's allowance for loan losses totaled $47.7 million, or 1.73% of total loans, compared to $50.7 million, or 2.09% of total loans, at December 31, 2014, and $51.7 million, or 2.16% of total loans, at September 30, 2014.

Capital

The Company's and the Bank's capital position remains strong relative to current regulatory requirements. The Company and the Bank continue to have substantial liquidity that has been retained in cash or invested in high quality government-backed securities. As of September 30, 2015, tangible capital to tangible assets totaled 21.40%. In addition, at September 30, 2015, we had the ability to borrow up to $1.4 billion combined from the Federal Home Loan Bank of Pittsburgh and the Federal Reserve Bank of Philadelphia. The Company's capital ratios are considered to be well capitalized and are as follows:
