Management Commentary

Roger D. Plemens, President and CEO of the Company reported, “The second quarter represents another successful quarter for the Company as we continue to improve our profitability while decreasing our efficiency ratio. We remain focused on improving our return on equity and assets, and will continue to make decisions that create a high performing bank. We are also pleased with the continued improvement in asset quality as we successfully liquidated several large properties. In June, we announced a definitive agreement to acquire Chattahoochee Bank of Georgia (“Chattahoochee”) which we expect will be more than 15% accretive to 2018 earnings and increase our return on equity above 8%.”

Net Interest Income

Net interest income increased $1.5 million, or 16.8%, to $10.2 million for the three months ended June 30, 2017 compared to $8.7 million for the same period in 2016. Net interest income increased $3.4 million, or 21.2%, to $19.8 million for the six months ended June 30, 2017 compared to $16.4 million for the same period in 2016. The increase in net interest income was primarily due to higher volumes in the loan and investment portfolios as well as a decrease in the interest rate paid on deposits. Net interest margin for the three and six months ended June 30, 2017 improved to 3.36% and 3.33%, respectively, compared to 3.33% and 3.28% for the same periods in 2016.

Provision for Loan Losses

The provision for loan losses was $0.3 million and $0.6 million for the three and six months ended June 30, 2017, compared to no provision for loan losses for the same periods in 2016. The Company continues to experience a minimal level of net charge-offs and modest levels of non-performing loans.

Noninterest Income

Noninterest income decreased $0.2 million, or 8.1%, to $1.9 million for the three months ended June 30, 2017 compared to $2.1 million for the same period in 2016. The slight decline was primarily related to reduced gains on sales of investments and SBA loans partially offset by increases in mortgage banking income, interchange fees, and bank-owned life insurance (BOLI).

Noninterest income decreased $1.0 million, or 24.2%, to $3.0 million for the six months ended June 30, 2017 compared to $4.0 million for the same period in 2016. The decline was primarily related to other than temporary impairment of $0.7 million realized on one investment security as well as decreases in gains from the sale of SBA loans, partially offset by increases in mortgage banking income, interchange fees, and BOLI.

Noninterest Expense

Noninterest expense decreased $0.4 million, or 4.8%, to $8.9 million for the three months ended June 30, 2017 compared to $9.3 million for the same period in 2016. The decrease was primarily related to a decline of $1.4 million in merger-related expenses. The Company incurred $1.8 million of merger-related expenses during the three months ended June 30, 2016 primarily related to the Oldtown Bank acquisition. Noninterest expense increased $0.9 million, or 5.3%, to $17.5 million for the six months ended June 30, 2017 compared to $16.6 million for the same period in 2016. The increase was primarily related to increased compensation and employee benefits and net occupancy expenses as the 2017 period included the full impact of the Oldtown Bank acquisition and the partial impact of the branches acquired from Stearns Bank.

Income Taxes

Income tax expense for the three and six months ended June 30, 2017 was $0.9 million and $1.3 million, respectively, compared to $0.7 million and $1.5 million in the comparable periods in the prior year. The Company’s effective tax rates of 29.0% and 28.2% for the three and six months ended June 30, 2017, respectively, improved from 44.0% and 40.7% from the same respective periods in 2016 primarily as the result of increased tax-exempt income related to municipal bond investments and BOLI income.

Balance Sheet

Total assets increased $116.6 million, or an annualized rate of 18.0%, to $1.41 billion at June 30, 2017 from $1.29 billion at December 31, 2016 as the Company continued to leverage its capital with earning assets.

Loans receivable increased $50.3 million, or an annualized rate of 13.5%, to $794.7 million at June 30, 2017 from $744.4 million at December 31, 2016. Loan growth continues to be primarily concentrated in commercial real estate and commercial and industrial loans.

The Company also increased its investment portfolio by $29.5 million from December 31, 2016 to June 30, 2017 in order to better leverage its capital. The Company utilized excess cash received from the assumption of deposits in the February branch acquisition to fund additional purchases of investments available for sale.

Core deposits increased $109.6 million, or 20.3%, to $650.4 million at June 30, 2017 from $540.8 million at December 31, 2016, including $79.6 million of core deposits assumed in the Stearns Bank branch acquisition. Certificates of deposits increased $74.4 million to $363.6 million at June 30, 2017 from $289.2 million at December 31, 2016, primarily as the result of certificates of deposit assumed from Stearns Bank. Core deposits remained relatively unchanged at 64% of the Company’s deposit portfolio at June 30, 2017 compared to 65% at December 31, 2016.

Total equity increased $7.0 million to $140.1 million at June 30, 2017 compared to $133.1 million at December 31, 2016. This increase was primarily attributable to $3.4 million of net income, $0.5 million of stock-based compensation expense, and a $3.4 million improvement in the market value of investment securities partially offset by $0.3 million of share repurchases. Tangible book value per share increased $0.11 from $20.10 at December 31, 2016 to $20.21 at June 30, 2017 as a result of operating results for the period offset by $1.02 per share dilution from the Stearns Bank branch acquisition.

Asset Quality

Non-performing assets decreased $1.2 million to $9.1 million at June 30, 2017 from $10.3 million at December 31, 2016 primarily as a result of the liquidation of several large real estate owned balances during the period. Net loan charge-offs continue to remain low totaling $11 thousand for the six months ended June 30, 2017, compared to $0.4 million for the year ended December 31, 2016.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Statements included in this press release include non-GAAP financial measures and should be read along with the accompanying tables in Appendix A, which provide a reconciliation of non-GAAP financial measures to GAAP financial measures. This press release and the accompanying tables discuss financial measures, such as core noninterest expense, core net income, core diluted earnings per share, core return on average assets, core return on average equity, and core efficiency ratio, which are non-GAAP measures. We believe that such non-GAAP measures are useful because they enhance the ability of investors and management to evaluate and compare the Company’s operating results from period to period in a meaningful manner. Non-GAAP measures should not be considered as an alternative to any measure of performance as promulgated under GAAP. Investors should consider the Company’s performance and financial condition as reported under GAAP and all other relevant information when assessing the performance or financial condition of the Company. Non-GAAP measures have limitations as analytical tools, and investors should not consider them in isolation or as a substitute for analysis of the Company's results or financial condition as reported under GAAP.
