Lakeland Bancorp Grows Core EPS by 18% and Increases Dividend

OAK RIDGE, N.J., April 27, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Lakeland Bancorp, Inc. (NASDAQ:LBAI) (the “Company”), the parent company of Lakeland Bank (“Lakeland”), reported net income of $12.3 million for the three months ended March 31, 2017 compared to $8.1 million for the same period in 2016. For the three months ended March 31, 2017, diluted earnings per share (“EPS”) of $0.26 increased over $0.20 for the same period in 2016. Core EPS, which excludes $1.7 million of pre-tax merger related expenses in the first quarter of 2016(1), increased 18% from $0.22 for the three months ended March 31, 2016 to $0.26 this quarter. For the first quarter of 2017, return on average assets was 0.97%, return on average common equity was 9.02%, and return on average tangible common equity was 12.04%.

Thomas J. Shara, Lakeland Bancorp’s President and CEO, commented, “We are pleased to report another strong quarter highlighted by robust loan and core deposit growth. Our net interest margin increased this quarter as a result of fully deploying the excess liquidity from our subordinated debt and equity offerings in late 2016.”

With respect to the Company’s markets, Mr. Shara added, “We are excited to expand our franchise into New York State with our opening of the Highland Mills branch in the Hudson Valley. This expansion compliments the two bank acquisitions we completed in 2016.”

The following represents performance highlights and significant events for the first quarter of 2017:

  • Commercial loans grew $106.3 million, or 3.4%, since December 31, 2016, resulting in total loan growth of $100.8 million to $3.97 billion at March 31, 2017.
  • Deposits increased $200.6 million, or 4.9%, since December 31, 2016, to $4.29 billion primarily due to growth in consumer accounts.
  • The Company sold an investment security realizing a gain of $2.5 million. The Company elected to prepay $54.0 million in higher rate long-term borrowings and incurred a $2.8 million prepayment penalty.
  • Net interest margin (“NIM”) rose to 3.33% compared to 3.27% in the prior quarter and 3.48% for the first quarter of 2016. The increase from the fourth quarter of 2016 was primarily due to the deployment of cash into higher yielding investments and loans as well as the paydown of higher rate long-term debt.
  • The efficiency ratio of 56.36% for the first quarter of 2017 compares favorably to 60.48% for the same period in 2016.
  • On April 25, 2017, the Company increased its quarterly cash dividend 5.3% to $0.10 per share to be paid on May 16, 2017 to stockholders of record as of May 5, 2017.
  • The Company adopted Accounting Standards Update No. 2016-09 related to the accounting of stock compensation and the Company recorded a $0.6 million tax benefit associated with the vesting and exercise of equity awards during the quarter.
  • The Company opened its first branch outside of New Jersey to enhance its presence in the Hudson Valley market in New York State.

Earnings
Net income for the first quarter of 2017 was $12.3 million compared to $8.1 million for the first quarter of 2016. Excluding merger related expenses, net income for the first quarter of 2016 was $9.3 million.

Net Interest Income
Net interest income for the first quarter of 2017 was $39.3 million, as compared to $33.9 million for the same period in 2016. Total interest income increased due to the organic growth of earning assets as well as the merger with Harmony Bank in July 2016 (“the merger”). Total interest expense increased $1.8 million, primarily due to additional deposits from the merger, organic deposit growth and the impact of the subordinated debt offering in September 2016.

The yield on interest earning assets for the first quarter of 2017 was 3.78%, as compared to 3.86% reported in the first quarter of 2016, due to a change in the mix of interest-earning assets. The cost of interest-bearing liabilities for the first quarter of 2017 was 0.60% compared to 0.49% for the first quarter of 2016, reflecting the additional interest expense from the subordinated debt offering in September 2016 and the higher cost of deposits.

Noninterest Income
Noninterest income totaled $8.1 million for the first quarter of 2017 compared to $4.9 million for the same period in 2016. This increase was primarily due to an additional $2.2 million gain on sale of investment securities, $0.4 million gain on sale of a former branch, $0.3 million additional gain on sale of other real estate owned, and $0.3 million in higher loan swap fee income.

Noninterest Expense
Noninterest expense totaled $28.5 million for the first quarter of 2017 compared to $25.4 million for the same period in 2016. This quarter, the Company incurred long-term debt prepayment penalties of $2.8 million, and in 2016, the Company incurred $1.7 million in merger related expenses. Salary and employee benefit expenses increased $1.3 million for the three months ended March 31, 2017 compared to the prior year period due primarily to additional staff from the merger and increases in employee salary and benefit costs. Other expenses increased $0.4 million primarily due to higher correspondent, legal, collection, courier and consulting expenses.

Financial Condition
In the first quarter of 2017, total assets increased $154.7 million, or 3.0%, to $5.25 billion as total loans and leases grew $100.8 million to $3.97 billion and investment securities increased $78.4 million to $847.8 million. On the funding side, total deposits grew $200.6 million to $4.29 billion while other borrowings declined $87.4 million to $173.4 million.

Asset Quality
At March 31, 2017, non-performing assets totaled $18.5 million (0.35% of total assets), compared to $21.5 million (0.42% of total assets) at December 31, 2016. Non-performing loans and leases as a percent of total loans and leases decreased to 0.45% at March 31, 2017 from 0.53% at December 31, 2016. The allowance for loan and lease losses totaled $31.6 million at March 31, 2017, and represented 0.79% of total loans and leases. During the first quarter of 2017, the Company had net charge-offs of $0.9 million (annualized 0.09% of average loans) compared to $1.4 million (annualized 0.17% of average loans) for the first quarter of 2016. The provision for loan and lease losses for the first quarter of 2017 was $1.2 million compared to $1.1 million for the first quarter of 2016.

Capital
At March 31, 2017, stockholders' equity was $557.6 million compared to $550.0 million at December 31, 2016. Book value per common share was $11.78 compared to $11.65 at December 31, 2016. Tangible book value per common share was $8.84 compared to $8.70 at December 31, 2016.

Forward-Looking Statements
The information disclosed in this document includes various forward-looking statements (with respect to corporate objectives, trends, and other financial and business matters) that are made in reliance upon the safe harbor provisions of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. The words “anticipates”, “projects”, “intends”, “estimates”, “expects”, “believes”, “plans”, “may”, “will”, “should”, “could”, and other similar expressions are intended to identify such forward-looking statements. The Company cautions that these forward-looking statements are necessarily speculative and speak only as of the date made, and are subject to numerous assumptions, risks and uncertainties, all of which may change over time. Actual results could differ materially from such forward-looking statements. The following factors, among others, could cause actual results to differ materially and adversely from such forward-looking statements: changes in the financial services industry and the U.S. and global capital markets, changes in economic conditions nationally, regionally and in the Company’s markets, the nature and timing of actions of the Federal Reserve Board and other regulators, the nature and timing of legislation affecting the financial services industry, government intervention in the U.S. financial system, changes in levels of market interest rates, pricing pressures on loan and deposit products, credit risks of the Company’s lending and leasing activities, customers’ acceptance of the Company’s products and services, competition, and failure to realize anticipated efficiencies and synergies from the Pascack Community Bank and Harmony Bank acquisitions.

(1) Explanation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures
Reported amounts are presented in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America ("GAAP"). This press release also contains certain supplemental non-GAAP information that the Company’s management uses in its analysis of the Company’s financial results. Specifically, the Company provides measures based on what it believes are its operating earnings on a consistent basis, and excludes material non-routine operating items which affect the GAAP reporting of results of operations. The Company’s management believes that providing this information to analysts and investors allows them to better understand and evaluate the Company’s core financial results for the periods in question.

The Company also provides measurements and ratios based on tangible equity and tangible assets. These measures are utilized by regulators and market analysts to evaluate a company’s financial condition and, therefore, the Company’s management believes that such information is useful to investors.

The Company also uses an efficiency ratio that is a non-GAAP financial measure. The ratio that the Company uses excludes amortization of core deposit intangibles, provision for unfunded lending commitments and, where applicable, long-term debt prepayment fees and merger related expenses. Income for the non-GAAP ratio is increased by the favorable effect of tax-exempt income and excludes gains and losses from the sale of investment securities and gain on debt extinguishment, which can vary from period to period. The Company uses this ratio because it believes the ratio provides a better comparison of period to period operating performance.

These disclosures should not be viewed as a substitute for financial results determined in accordance with GAAP, nor are they necessarily comparable to non-GAAP performance measures which may be presented by other companies. See accompanying non-GAAP tables.
