NORWICH, N.Y., April 25, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- NBT Bancorp Inc. (NBT) (NASDAQ:NBTB) reported net income for the first quarter of 2016 of $18.9 million, up from $18.2 million for the prior year. Diluted earnings per share for the three months ended March 31, 2016 was $0.43, up from $0.41 for the prior year.

2016 First Quarter Highlights:

  • First quarter loan growth of 5.8% (annualized)
  • Average demand deposits up 11.3% from the first quarter of 2015
  • Net interest income up 3.9% from the first quarter of 2015
  • Positive trends continue for asset quality indicators:
    • Past due loans to total loans improved to 0.50% at March 31, 2016 from 0.62% at December 31, 2015
    • Annualized net charge-offs to average loans improved to 0.33% for the first quarter of 2016 from 0.38% for the full year of 2015


“Our first quarter 2016 results demonstrate our strong financial performance and sustained favorable trends in organic loan and deposit growth and asset quality indicators,” said NBT President and CEO Martin Dietrich. “As NBT continues to grow and respond to our changing business environment, we remain deeply rooted in our core values, including superior customer service, continuous improvement, community involvement and teamwork. We also continue to focus on cultivating long-term value for our shareholders through our investments in our people, technology and business strategies.”

Net interest income was $64.6 million for the first quarter of 2016, up $1.1 million from the previous quarter, and up $2.4 million from the first quarter of 2015. Fully taxable equivalent (“FTE”) net interest margin was 3.47% for the three months ended March 31, 2016, up from 3.42% for the previous quarter and down from 3.60% for the first quarter of 2015. The increase from the previous quarter was driven by an increase in yields on earning assets, partially offset by slightly higher costs of interest bearing liabilities. Average interest earning assets were up $127.1 million, or 1.7%, for the first quarter of 2016 as compared to the prior quarter. This increase was driven primarily by a $117.8 million increase in average securities available for sale from the fourth quarter of 2015 to the first quarter of 2016. Yields on earning assets increased by 5 basis points from 3.70% during the fourth quarter of 2015 to 3.75% for the first quarter of 2016. This increase was driven by an 8 basis-point increase in loan yields from the fourth quarter of 2015 to the first quarter of 2016. The increase in average earning assets and yields on earning assets in the first quarter of 2016 resulted in a $1.2 million increase in interest income from the fourth quarter of 2015. Interest expense for the first quarter of 2016 was up $0.1 million from the fourth quarter of 2015 and resulted primarily from a 2.0% increase in average interest bearing liabilities during the first quarter of 2016 as well as a 1 basis-point increase in the rates paid on interest bearing liabilities for the same period. Interest expense for the first quarter of 2016 was up $0.3 million from the same period in 2015 and resulted primarily from a 5.2% increase in average interest bearing liabilities during the first quarter of 2016 as well as a 1 basis-point increase in the rates paid on interest bearing liabilities as compared to the first quarter of 2015.

Noninterest income for the three months ended March 31, 2016 was $28.4 million, down $4.1 million from the fourth quarter of 2015, and up $1.8 million from the same period in 2015. The decrease from the prior quarter was primarily driven by a $3.0 million gain in the fourth quarter of 2015 from the sale of an equity investment. In addition, other noninterest income was down $1.1 million in the first quarter of 2016 as compared with the fourth quarter of 2015 due primarily to a favorable settlement of a prior accrual in the fourth quarter of 2015. Service charges on deposit accounts were down $0.4 million from the fourth quarter of 2015 to the first quarter of 2016 due to seasonal overdraft charges in the fourth quarter of 2015. Retirement plan administration fees and trust revenue were both down $0.4 million from the fourth quarter of 2015 primarily due to less favorable market conditions during the first quarter of 2016 compared with the fourth quarter of 2015. These decreases were partially offset by an $0.8 million increase in insurance and other financial services revenue in the first quarter of 2016 as compared with the prior quarter due to seasonality. In addition, bank-owned life insurance income was up $0.4 million from the fourth quarter of 2015 due primarily to death benefits received during the first quarter of 2016.

Noninterest expense for the three months ended March 31, 2016 was $58.2 million, down $2.4 million from the previous quarter, and up $0.5 million from the same period in 2015. The decrease from the prior quarter was due primarily to a $1.1 million decrease in other noninterest expense from the fourth quarter of 2015 to the first quarter of 2016. This decrease was due to timing of various operating expense items. In addition, salaries and employee benefits decreased $0.6 million in the first quarter of 2016 as compared with the fourth quarter of 2015 driven by contract termination costs incurred during the fourth quarter of 2015, partially offset by higher retirement plan costs during the first quarter of 2016.

Asset Quality

Net charge-offs were $4.8 million for the three months ended March 31, 2016, down from $7.6 million for the prior quarter, and up from $4.6 million for the same period in 2015. Provision expense was $6.1 million for the three months ended March 31, 2016, as compared with $5.8 million for the prior quarter, and $3.6 million for the first quarter of 2015. Provision expense was higher than the previous quarter and the prior year primarily due to loan growth. Annualized net charge-offs to average loans for the first quarter of 2016 was 0.33%, compared with 0.38% for the full year of 2015 and 0.34% for the first quarter of 2015.

Nonperforming loans to total loans was 0.69% at March 31, 2016, up from 0.64% for the prior quarter, and down from 0.85% at March 31, 2015. Past due loans as a percentage of total loans were 0.51% at March 31, 2016, down from 0.64% at December 31, 2015, and 0.56% at March 31, 2015.

The allowance for loan losses totaled $64.3 million at March 31, 2016, compared to $63.0 million at December 31, 2015, and $65.4 million at March 31, 2015. The allowance for loan losses as a percentage of loans was 1.08% (1.18% excluding acquired loans with no related allowance recorded) at March 31, 2016, compared to 1.07% (1.18% excluding acquired loans with no related allowance recorded) at December 31, 2015 and 1.16% (1.29% excluding acquired loans with no related allowance recorded) at March 31, 2015.

Balance Sheet

Total assets were $8.5 billion at March 31, 2016, up $210.3 million, or 2.5% from December 31, 2015. Loans were $6.0 billion at March 31, 2016, up $84.7 million from December 31, 2015, due to loan growth in the first quarter of 2016. The increase in loans in the first quarter resulted from growth in the commercial, residential and consumer portfolios. Consumer loan growth was supplemented with approximately $30 million in loans from LendingClub Corporation as part of the Company’s ongoing relationship which began with the sale of Springstone LLC in the second quarter of 2014. Total deposits were $6.9 billion at March 31, 2016, up $300.2 million, or 4.5%, from December 31, 2015.
