SHIPPENSBURG, Pa., April 27, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Orrstown Financial Services, Inc. (the “Company”) (NASDAQ:ORRF), the parent company of Orrstown Bank (the “Bank”) and Wheatland Advisors, Inc. ("Wheatland"), announced earnings for the three months ended March 31, 2017. Net income was $2.0 million for the three months ended March 31, 2017, compared with $2.6 million for the same period in 2016. Diluted earnings per share totaled $0.24 and $0.32 for the three months ended March 31, 2017 and 2016. Earnings in the first quarter of 2017 reflected increased interest income from expanding loan and investment portfolios as the Company pursued its growth strategy and continued to take advantage of market disruption. Results for the first quarter of 2016 were significantly influenced by investment securities gains of $1.4 million compared with minimal gains in the first quarter of 2017. Noninterest income, excluding securities gains, was consistent between 2017 and 2016. Noninterest expenses totaled $12.1 million, up from $11.1 million in the 2016 quarter, with overall increases attributable to salaries and benefits associated with the Company's growth.

Thomas R. Quinn, Jr., President and Chief Executive Officer, commented, “The momentum which began in the second half of 2016 has continued and is growing in the first quarter of 2017. Our growth in loans, combined with effective balance sheet management, has moved our net interest margin substantially from 2016, ultimately resulting in over 18% net interest income growth. Our growth in loans, deposits and net interest margin are the result of great efforts by our staff in the Company’s core markets, and our 2016 investments we made in new markets."

OPERATING RESULTS

Net Interest Income

Net interest income totaled $10.2 million for the three months ended March 31, 2017, an 18.3% increase over $8.7 million for the same period in 2016. Net interest margin on a fully taxable-equivalent basis was 3.35% for the three months ended March 31, 2017, compared to 3.06% for the same period in 2016. For the first quarter of 2017, the net interest margin of 3.35% expanded 15 basis points over the fourth quarter of 2016, and was 29 basis points higher than the first quarter of 2016.

Increased yields in loans and investments reflected a higher interest rate environment as well as purchases of additional tax-exempt securities in late 2016 and 2017 with yields higher than the portfolio average. The cost of interest-bearing liabilities increased at a slower pace than the yields earned on interest-earning assets from 2016 to 2017, as the market has been slow to respond to interest rate changes.

Provision for Loan Losses

The Company recorded no provision for loan losses during the three months ended March 31, 2017 or 2016. In calculating the required provision for loan losses, both quantitative and qualitative factors are considered in the determination of the adequacy of the allowance for loan losses. Favorable historical charge-off data combined with stable economic and market conditions resulted in the determination that no provision for loan losses was required to offset net charge-offs or for loan growth experienced during the first quarter of 2017.

Despite improvement in many of the asset quality metrics since March 2016, the growth the Company has experienced in its loan portfolio is one factor that may result in the need for additional provisions for loan losses in future quarters.

Noninterest Income

Noninterest income, excluding securities gains, for the three months ended March 31, 2017 totaled $4.3 million, compared with $4.2 million in the prior year period. Trust, investment management and brokerage income increased $128 thousand, which is largely attributable to activity from Wheatland Advisors, Inc., which was acquired in December 2016. Mortgage banking activities income decreased $139 thousand due to decreased refinance activity as interest rates have increased.

Investment securities gains were not significant in the three months ended March 31, 2017, compared with $1.4 million for the same period in 2016. As market conditions present opportunities to act on asset/liability management strategies or interest rate market conditions, the Company may sell investment securities.

Noninterest Expenses

Noninterest expenses totaled $12.1 million and $11.1 million for the three months ended March 31, 2017 and 2016. The principal drivers of the increase were salaries and employee benefits, which increased $1.2 million, and occupancy, furniture and equipment which increased $181 thousand. These increases reflect previously disclosed market expansion actions by the Company as it has added new, primarily customer-facing, employees and facilities, principally in Berks, Cumberland, Dauphin and Lancaster counties.

Other line items within noninterest expenses showed modest fluctuations between 2017 and 2016.

Income Taxes

Income tax expense totaled $424 thousand for the three months ended March 31, 2017, compared to $614 thousand for the same period in 2016. The Company’s effective tax rate is significantly less than the 34.0% federal statutory rate principally due to tax-exempt income, including interest earned on tax-exempt loans and securities and earnings on the cash value of life insurance policies. The effective tax rate for the three months ended March 31, 2017 was 17.5%, compared with 19.2% for the three months ended March 31, 2016. The lower effective tax rate for the first quarter of 2017 compared with 2016 is primarily the result of a larger percentage of tax-exempt income to total income and additional tax credits.

FINANCIAL CONDITION

Assets totaled $1.45 billion at March 31, 2017, an increase of $39.4 million from $1.41 billion at December 31, 2016 and of $166.7 million from $1.29 billion at March 31, 2016. The principal growth components were securities available for sale, which increased $23.4 million from December 31, 2016 to March 31, 2017 and $96.0 million year-over-year, and loans which are summarized below. Deposit growth of $31.4 million in the first quarter of 2017 was the primary source of funding for growth in securities and loans in the quarter. Deposit growth of $135.5 million, coupled with an overall reduction in cash balances of $38.4 million, was the primary source of funding for year-over-year growth in securities and loans.

Gross loans, excluding those held for sale, totaled $901.3 million at March 31, 2017, and increased $17.9 million, or 2.0% (8.2% annualized), from $883.4 million at December 31, 2016, In comparison to March 31, 2016’s loan balance of $804.7 million, loans increased $96.6 million, or 12.0%.

The following table presents loan balances, by loan class within segments, at March 31, 2017, December 31, 2016 and March 31, 2016.

Growth was experienced in nearly all loan segments from December 31, 2016 to March 31, 2017, with the largest increase in the commercial real estate segment, which grew by $8.4 million, which was approximately half of the portfolio growth for the period, or 8.0% annualized. The Company continues to grow in both core markets and new markets through expansion in the sales force and capitalizing on continued market disruption.

Total deposits grew 2.7% (11.1% annualized) from $1.15 billion at December 31, 2016 to $1.18 billion at March 31, 2017, and increased 12.9% in comparison with $1.05 billion at March 31, 2016, due principally to growth in interest-bearing accounts. The Company has continued to increase both noninterest-bearing and interest-bearing deposit relationships from enhanced cash management offerings delivered by its expanded sales force.

Shareholders’ Equity

Shareholders’ equity totaled $137.5 million at March 31, 2017, an increase of $2.6 million, or 1.9%, from $134.9 million at December 31, 2016. This increase was principally the result of net income totaling $2.0 million for the three months ended March 31, 2017 coupled with a $1.1 million increase in accumulated other comprehensive income (loss), net of tax, and offset by dividends declared on common stock during the quarter.

Asset Quality

Asset quality metrics remained relatively stable in comparing March 31, 2017 with December 31, 2016 and have improved since March 31, 2016.

The allowance for loan losses balance totaled $12.7 million at March 31, 2017, compared with the $12.8 million at December 31, 2016 and the $13.3 million balance at March 31, 2016. Management believes the allowance for loan losses to total loans ratio remains adequate at 1.41% as of March 31, 2017. Favorable historical charge-off data and management's emphasis on loan quality have been significant contributors to the determination that a relatively stable allowance for loan losses balance is adequate as the loan portfolio has been increasing.

The allowance for loan losses to nonperforming loans totaled 198.6% at March 31, 2017 compared with 181.4% at December 31, 2016, and 83.9% at March 31, 2016, reflecting a substantial decrease in nonaccrual loans from a year ago. The allowance for loan losses to nonperforming and restructured loans still accruing totaled 173.5% at March 31, 2017, compared to 160.2% at December 31, 2016 and 78.7% at March 31, 2016.

Nonperforming and other risk assets, defined as nonaccrual loans, restructured loans still accruing, loans past due 90 days or more and still accruing, and other real estate owned totaled decreased 52.3% from March 31, 2016 to March 31, 2017. The balance at March 31, 2017 and December 31, 2017 was a similar $8.3 million compared with $17.4 million at March 31, 2016, as nonaccrual loans decreased $9.5 million from March 31, 2016 to March 31, 2017.

Classified loans, defined as loans rated substandard, doubtful or loss, totaled $22.0 million at March 31, 2017, or approximately 2.4% of total loans, compared with $22.9 million (2.6%) at December 31, 2016 and $24.4 million (3.0%) at March 31, 2016.
