DNB Financial Corporation Reports Second Quarter 2017 Results

DOWNINGTOWN, Pa., July 24, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- DNB Financial Corporation (Nasdaq:DNBF), today reported net income in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”) of $2.3 million, or $0.53 per diluted share, for the quarter ending June 30, 2017, compared with $1.1 million, or $0.39 per diluted share, for the same quarter, last year. For the six months ending June 30, 2017, the Company reported net income of $4.7 million, or $1.10 per diluted share, compared with $2.7 million, or $0.93 per diluted share, for the same period, last year.

DNB Financial Corporation (the “Company” or “DNB”) is the parent of DNB First, National Association, one of the first nationally-chartered community banks to serve the greater Philadelphia region. On October 1, 2016, the Company completed its acquisition of Philadelphia-based East River Bank ("East River") and its results of operations are included in the consolidated results for the periods ended December 31, 2016, March 31, 2017, and June 30, 2017, but are not included in the results of operations for any other periods.

On a core basis, the Company reported net income of $1.8 million, or $0.42 per diluted share, for the quarter ending June 30, 2017, compared with $1.2 million, or $0.41 per diluted share, for the corresponding prior year quarter. Core earnings, which is a non-GAAP measure of net income, excludes purchase accounting adjustments (accretion) of $468,000, merger-related expenses of $26,000, amortization of intangible assets of $23,000, gains from the sale of investment securities of $25,000, tax benefit of $153,000 for stock option exercises, and an income tax adjustment of $126,000 for the three months ending June 30, 2017.

DNB adopted the new accounting guidance for equity-based transactions requiring that all excess tax benefits and tax deficiencies associated with equity-based compensation be recognized as an income tax benefit or expense in the income statement. Previously, tax effects resulting from changes in the Company’s share price subsequent to the grant date were recorded through stockholders’ equity at the time of vesting or exercise. The adoption of the accounting guidance resulted in a $153,000 income tax benefit in the second quarter of 2017. Please see the Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures on page 6 of the release. Non-GAAP financial measures include references to the terms “core” or “operating.”

William J. Hieb, President and CEO, commented, “Second quarter results represent progress toward the accomplishment of many of our strategic goals, which include providing superior customer service, growing core deposits and wealth management, and organically building capital and tangible book value. Although our credit costs were elevated this quarter, nonperforming assets remain at relatively low levels and asset quality remains strong.”

Highlights

  • On a sequential quarter basis, core deposits grew $15.8 million, or 2.2% (not annualized), and were 80% of total deposits as of June 30, 2017.

  • The core net interest margin, which excludes purchase accounting adjustments, was 3.39% for the quarter ending June 30, 2017, compared with 3.38% for the quarter ending March 31, 2017, and 3.08% for the quarter ending June 30, 2016. The year-over-year improvement was primarily due to the acquisition of East River.

  • Asset quality remained strong although net charge-offs increased to 0.36% (annualized) of total average loans for the second quarter of 2017. Non-performing loans were 0.84% of total loans at June 30, 2017.

  • Wealth management assets under care increased 8.7% (not annualized) to $232.7 million as of June 30, 2017 from $214.2 million as of December 31, 2016.

  • The Company paid a quarterly cash dividend of $0.07 per share on June 21, 2017.

Income Statement Summary

Based on core earnings of $1.8 million, the Company’s performance for the quarter ending June 30, 2017 generated a return on average assets (“ROAA”) and return on average tangible common equity (“ROTCE”) of 0.67% and 8.74%, respectively. The core ROAA and ROTCE were 0.71% and 9.17%, respectively, for the same quarter, last year. Please see the “Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures” on page 6 of the release.

Net interest income for the three months ending June 30, 2017 was $9.3 million, which represented a $47,000 increase from the quarter ending March 31, 2017, and a $3.8 million increase from the three months ending June 30, 2016. The year-over-year increase was primarily due to a 67.3% rise in total average loans and 51 basis point increase in the net interest margin to 3.59% for the quarter ending June 30, 2017. The main driver for the increase in both volume and rate was the East River acquisition. For the second quarter of 2017, the weighted average yield on total interest-earning assets was 4.12%, which included purchase accounting adjustments. On a core basis, which excludes the purchase accounting fair value marks, the core net interest margin was 3.39% for the second quarter of 2017 compared with 3.38% for the three months ending March 31, 2017.

Total interest expense was $1.4 million for the three months ending June 30, 2017, compared with $1.3 million for the first quarter of 2017, and $708,000 for the second quarter of 2016. The year-over-year increase was primarily due to a higher amount of interest-bearing liabilities, largely due to the East River acquisition. The weighted average rate paid for interest-bearing liabilities was 0.56% and 0.53% for the quarters ending June 30, 2017 and March 31, 2017, respectively.

The provision for credit losses was $585,000 for the most recent quarter compared with $325,000 for the three months ended March 31, 2017 and $200,000 for the second quarter of 2016. As of June 30, 2017, the allowance for credit losses was $5.3 million and represented 0.65% of total loans. Loans acquired in connection with the purchase of East River were recorded at fair value based on an initial estimate of expected cash flows, including a reduction for estimated credit losses, and without carryover of the respective portfolio's historical allowance for credit losses. At June 30, 2017, the allowance for credit losses as a percentage of originated loans, which represents all loans other than those acquired, was 0.98%.

Total non-interest income for the second quarter of 2017 was $1.3 million, compared with $1.2 million for the same quarter, last year. On a core basis, non-interest income was approximately 12.1% of total revenue for the quarter ending June 30, 2017. Gains from the sale of securities realized in the second quarter of 2017 totaled $25,000 compared with $203,000 for the quarter ending June 30, 2016. Wealth management fees were $471,000 for the second quarter of 2017, compared with $440,000 for the second quarter of 2016. Wealth management fees represented 36.2% of total core fee income.

Non-interest expense was $6.9 million for the second quarter of 2017, compared with $6.7 million for the first quarter of 2017, and $4.9 million for the quarter ending June 30, 2016. Compared with the first quarter of 2017, increases were largely due to additional expenses related to recruiting, offices and equipment and professional services.

Balance Sheet Summary

As of June 30, 2017, total assets were $1.1 billion. On a sequential quarter basis, assets were relatively stable across all major categories. Total deposits decreased $12.7 million, or 1.4% (not annualized), on a sequential quarter basis as strong core deposit growth was more than offset by a planned decrease in time deposits. As of June 30, 2017, total shareholders’ equity was $99.4 million, compared with $94.8 million as of December 31, 2016. Tangible book value per share was $19.59 as of June 30, 2017, compared with $18.56 as of December 31, 2016.

On a sequential quarter basis, total loans increased $162,000 to $816.5 million as of June 30, 2017 and were 75.5% of total assets. Total average loans, however, increased $2.1 million, or 0.26% (not annualized), on a sequential quarter basis as period-end balances were affected by loan payoffs in the latter part of the quarter. Since December 31, 2016, the Company’s commercial construction lending portfolio increased $19.4 million, or 26.7% (not annualized), whereas other loan categories have experienced slight declines. Loan originations have been prudent and conservative underwriting standards have been maintained. The Company remains challenged to grow commercial-oriented loans in a competitive market characterized by an uneven economic recovery and cautious borrower demand.

On a sequential quarter basis, total core deposits grew $15.8 million, or 2.2% (not annualized), and were 80.2% of total deposits as of June 30, 2017. As of the same date, non-interest bearing deposits, which increased $5.3 million in the second quarter were 20.3% of total deposits. Core deposit growth in the second quarter of 2017 was primarily attributable to an increase in money market accounts and the aforementioned rise in demand accounts. Time deposits decreased $30.2 million, which was part of the Company’s asset/liability strategy. As of June 30, 2017, the loan-to-deposit ratio was 91.4%.

Capital ratios continue to exceed regulatory standards for well capitalized institutions. At June 30, 2017, the tier 1 leverage ratio was 8.80%, the tier 1 risk-based capital was 11.32%, the common equity tier 1 risk-based capital ratio was 10.24% and the total risk based capital ratio was 13.15%. As of the same date, the tangible common equity-to-tangible assets ratio was 7.83%. Intangible assets were $16.0 million as of June 30, 2017.

Asset Quality Summary

Asset quality remained good, although net charge-offs increased to 0.36% of total average loans for the quarter ending June 30, 2017, compared with 0.01% for the quarter ending December 31, 2016, and 0.10% for the quarter ending June 30, 2016. The rise in net charge-offs was primarily due to two credits. Total non-performing assets, including loans and other real estate property, was $12.2 million as of June 30, 2017, compared with $12.7 million as of March 31, 2017, and $11.3 million as of December 31, 2016. The ratio of non-performing loans to total loans was 0.84% as of June 30, 2017, versus 1.04% as of December 31, 2016.

Interest Rate Risk Management

DNB's strategy has been to seek shorter duration over yield in its lending and investing activities and lengthen duration over rate in its financing activities to minimize interest rate risk. The Company also strives to offer products and services that develop strong relationships to retain core deposits. The Bank has an Asset Liability Management Committee that actively monitors and manages the bank's interest rate exposure using simulation models and gap analysis. The Committee's primary objective is to minimize the adverse impact of changes in interest rates on net interest income, while maximizing earnings. Simulation model results show moderate liability sensitivity to rising rates in 100, 200, 300 and 400 basis point shock scenarios. Rate changes ramped in over 24 months also show moderate liability sensitivity.
