“We are pleased with the continued success of our Company in 2016,” stated Gerard A. Champi, President and Chief Executive Officer. “We were able to deliver strong balance sheet growth and solid core-banking performance as evidenced by a double-digit increase in net interest income. We believe that the achievements we’ve made over the past four years have allowed us to create value for our shareholders, including growth in book value and the reinstatement of quarterly dividend payments as well as the dividend reinvestment and optional cash purchase plans,” continued Champi. “We are optimistic as we enter 2017 with the announcement of our planned expansion into the Lehigh Valley marketplace through the opening of a loan production office. We are excited to begin offering FNCB’s community bank brand and commitment to unsurpassed customer service to the Lehigh Valley,” concluded Champi.

Net income for the year ended December 31, 2015 was $35.8 million, or $2.17 per basic and diluted share. For the fourth quarter of 2015, FNCB recorded net income of $29.2 million, or $1.77, per basic and diluted common share. FNCB’s 2015 earnings performance was significantly impacted by the non-recurring reversal of a deferred tax asset (“DTA”) valuation allowance, which resulted in tax benefits of $27.7 million and $27.8 million in the consolidated statement of income for the fourth quarter and year ended December 31, 2015, respectively.

For the fourth quarter and year ended December 31, 2016, dividends declared and paid were $0.03 and $0.09 per share, respectively. The dividend payout ratio for 2016 was 23.7% and equaled a 1.5% annual return to shareholders based on the closing stock price of $6.05 per share at December 31, 2016. FNCB did not pay any dividends in 2015.

Return on average assets and return on average shareholders’ equity were 0.57% and 6.82%, respectively, in 2016, compared to 3.57% and 63.24%, respectively, in 2015. For the three months ended December 31, 2016, return on average assets and return on average shareholders’ equity were 0.55% and 6.43%, respectively, compared to 10.99% and 192.68%, respectively, for the same three months of 2015. Return on average assets and return on average shareholders’ equity for the fourth quarter and fiscal year ended December 31, 2015 were significantly impacted by the non-recurring $27.8 million tax benefit detailed above.

Summary Results for 2016

Net interest income before the credit for loan and lease losses increased $3.2 million, or 11.5%, to $30.6 million in 2016 from $27.4 million in 2015. The improvement in net interest income reflected a $2.5 million increase in interest income, coupled with a $0.6 million, or 12.6%, reduction in interest expense, in 2016 compared to 2015. The 7.9% increase in interest income in 2016 was largely due to an increase in average earning assets of $58.4 million, or 6.2%, to $1.0 billion in 2016 from $942.1 million in 2015. Specifically, average loans increased $35.0 million, or 5.0%, to $731.6 million in 2016 from $696.6 million in 2015, while average investment securities increased $34.4 million, or 15.1%, to $261.8 million in 2016 from $227.4 million in 2015. The 12.6% reduction in interest expense was due primarily to an 11 basis point reduction in FNCB’s cost of funds to 0.50% in 2016 from 0.61% in 2015. In 2016, FNCB realized a full year of the effect of its $11.0 million principal payment and a 450 basis point rate modification of its subordinated debentures, which was completed on June 30, 2015. As a result, interest expense on its subordinated debentures decreased $0.8 million, or 56.9%, in 2016 as compared to 2015. Overall, the average cost of borrowed funds decreased 59 basis points to 1.42% in 2016 from 2.01% in 2015. FNCB anticipates further reductions in borrowing costs in 2017 as a result of its accelerated repayment of $4.0 million in principal on its subordinated debentures which had a stated due date of September 1, 2017, but was paid by FNCB on December 1, 2016. FNCB’s tax-equivalent margin improved 14 basis points to 3.13% in 2016 from 2.99% in 2015. The margin improvement reflected the growth in average earning assets, as well as the positive effects of the reduced cost of borrowing funds.

Non-interest income decreased $1.6 million to $6.2 million in 2016 from $7.8 million in 2015. The 20.5% decrease was largely due to a $1.3 million, or 58.2%, decrease in net gains on the sale of investment securities.

Total non-interest expense decreased $0.9 million, or 3.2%, to $27.6 million in 2016 from $28.5 million in 2015. The decrease primarily reflected $0.8 million in non-recurring legal settlements that were accrued in 2015, coupled with decreases in occupancy costs of $0.5 million, or 22.2%, regulatory assessments of $0.2 million, or 23.3%, and insurance expense of $0.1 million, or 21.7%. Partially offsetting these decreases were increases in salaries and benefits of $0.5 million, equipment expense of $0.1 million, or 4.5%, and bank shares tax of $0.1 million, or 18.6%. The improvement in net interest income, and reduced expense levels, are reflected in an improvement in FNCB’s efficiency ratio to 75.49% in 2016 from 84.70% in 2015.

Improved Asset Quality

Asset quality continued to improve in 2016, reflecting FNCB’s continued focus on sound problem credit resolutions and commitment to disciplined credit risk management. Total non-performing assets decreased $0.5 million, or 7.2%, to $6.4 million at December 31, 2016 from $6.9 million at December 31, 2015. Decreases in non-performing loans, including non-accruing troubled debt restructurings, of $1.6 million and other real estate owned (“OREO”) of $1.1 million were partially offset by an increase in other non-performing assets of $2.2 million. Other non-performing assets include a classified account receivable secured by a letter of credit and foreclosed equipment.

The ratio of non-performing loans to total loans improved 21 basis points, or 40.4%, to 0.31% at December 31, 2016, compared to 0.52% at December 31, 2015. The allowance for loan and lease losses as a percentage of total loans was 1.15% at December 31, 2016 compared to 1.20% at the end of 2015. Net charge-offs as a percentage of average loans outstanding for the year ended December 31, 2016 was 0.21%, compared to 0.20% for the year ended December 31, 2015.

Financial Position

Total assets increased $104.8 million, or 9.6%, to $1.2 billion at December 31, 2016 from $1.1 billion at December 31, 2015. The balance sheet growth primarily reflected an increase in total deposits of $193.6 million, or 23.6%, a portion of which was used to repay $77.3 million in FHLB advances, accelerate the $4.0 million principal payment on the subordinated debentures, and fund net increases in loans, net of deferred costs and unearned income, and investment securities of $0.6 million and $18.9 million, respectively. With regard to the increase in total deposits, specifically, non-interest-bearing demand accounts increased $19.2 million, or 12.4%, and interest-bearing deposits increased $174.4 million, or 26.2% comparing December 31, 2016 and 2015. The increase in non-interest-bearing demand deposits is primarily attributable to growth in business checking accounts, while growth in municipal deposits contributed to the increase in interest-bearing deposits.

Total shareholders’ equity improved $4.0 million, or 4.6%, to $90.1 million at December 31, 2016 from $86.2 million at the end of 2015, which resulted primarily from net income for 2016 of $6.3 million, partially offset by a $1.5 million increase in accumulated other comprehensive loss resulting from depreciation in the market value, net of tax, of FNCB’s available-for-sale securities, due to changes in market interest rates. Also affecting shareholders’ equity were dividends declared and paid of $1.5 million, common shares issued through the dividend reinvestment and optional cash purchase plans of $0.4 million and stock-based compensation of $0.3 million.

FNCB’s total risk-based capital ratio and the Tier 1 leverage ratio improved to 12.06% and 7.53%, respectively, at December 31, 2016, from 11.79% and 7.27%, respectively, at December 31, 2015. The ratios exceeded the 10.00% and 5.00% required to be well capitalized under the prompt corrective action provisions of the Basel III capital framework for U.S. Banking organizations, which became effective for the Company and the Bank on January 1, 2016.
