Financial Institutions, Inc. Announces Second Quarter 2017 Results

WARSAW, N.Y., July 25, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Financial Institutions, Inc. (NASDAQ:FISI), today reported financial and operational results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2017. Financial Institutions, Inc. (the “Company”) is the parent company of Five Star Bank (the “Bank”), Scott Danahy Naylon, LLC (“Scott Danahy Naylon” or “SDN”) and Courier Capital, LLC (“Courier Capital”).

Net income for the quarter was $6.2 million, compared to $7.9 million for the first quarter of 2017 and $7.2 million for the second quarter of 2016. After preferred dividends, net income available to common shareholders was $5.9 million, or $0.40 per diluted share, compared to $7.6 million, or $0.52 per diluted share for the first quarter of 2017, and $6.8 million, or $0.47 per diluted share, for the second quarter of 2016.

Results for the second quarter of 2017 were negatively impacted by a $925 thousand provision for loan losses in connection with the downgrade of one commercial credit relationship and a $375 thousand net effect of two non-cash valuation adjustments related to the 2014 acquisition of SDN.

President and Chief Executive Officer Martin K. Birmingham stated, “We have continued to take advantage of market disruption to complete strategic hires — adding lenders in nearly all categories and adding credit and compliance professionals to support growth. Growing our residential mortgage lending business is a priority as we believe that our community bank delivery model offers an attractive option to homebuyers. We have completed the build-out of a team of highly-skilled and experienced residential mortgage professionals in Buffalo, including a team of loan officers and back office support personnel. We are pleased with the progress we have made in expanding our lending platforms.

“Loan and nonpublic deposit growth were strong in the quarter and in-line with our strategic plan. Total loans were 4.8% higher than the end of the first quarter and 13.8% higher than June 30, 2016. Nonpublic deposits were up 4.7% from March 31st and up 9.3% from the year earlier period.

“Commercial mortgage loans, commercial business loans and consumer indirect loans increased during the quarter by 7.3%, 6.1% and 5.2%, respectively. Consumer indirect lending is a unique core competency for Five Star Bank, based on the foundation of a consistent and disciplined underwriting process and an experienced management team. Our indirect lending business is a prime lending operation that continues to perform very well compared to peers, even through challenging times in the auto finance sector, with low delinquency levels and net charge-offs on the low end of our historic range.

“It is also important to note that our recently opened financial solution centers in downtown Rochester and downtown Buffalo continue to gain traction. These branches are prime locations and we believe they will serve as strong bases for our continued growth in Western New York.”

Chief Financial Officer Kevin B. Klotzbach added, “We believe that our strategy to drive noninterest income is working, in spite of challenges in one line of business. We recently made thoughtful and strategic organizational changes at SDN to increase the focus on growing both commercial and personal insurance revenues and reduce related operating expenses. We remain positive on the strategic contribution of this subsidiary which has supported the diversification of revenue, growth of fee income and strengthening of customer relationships. Growth in noninterest income continues to be a high priority.

“Our provision for loan losses increased in the quarter, primarily as a result of two factors: a commercial credit downgrade and growth in our loan portfolio. It is not unusual for banks to experience commercial credit downgrades in the normal course of business and we are focused on maximizing recovery. In addition, the provision increases as a function of total loan portfolio growth. During the first six months of 2017, we grew our loan portfolio by $176.7 million, resulting in an increase in the provision for loan losses of approximately $2.3 million."

Second Quarter 2017 Highlights:

  • Net interest income of $27.4 million increased $2.2 million, or 8.8%, as compared to the second quarter of 2016
  • Noninterest income of $9.3 million was $417 thousand, or 4.7%, higher than the second quarter of 2016
  • Total assets, interest-earning assets and loans all reached record-high levels at quarter-end:
    • Total assets increased $31.7 million during the quarter, to $3.89 billion
    • Total interest-earning assets increased $69.5 million during the quarter, to $3.59 billion
    • Total loans increased $114.2 million during the quarter, to $2.52 billion
  • The quarterly cash dividend of $0.21 per common share represented a 2.83% annualized dividend yield as of June 30, 2017, and a return of 53% of second quarter net income to common shareholders
  • Total risk-based capital was 13.09% at quarter-end, representing a strong capital position to support future growth
  • The Company launched an “at-the-market” equity offering program under which it may sell up to $40 million of its common stock
  • Shareholders elected Donald K. Boswell to the Board of Directors, the fourth new board member added over the course of the past three years

“At-The-Market” Offering of Common Stock

On May 30, 2017, the Company announced an “at-the-market” equity offering program under which it may sell up to $40 million of its common stock. The Company expects to use the net proceeds of this offering to support organic growth and other general corporate purposes, including contributing capital to its banking subsidiary, Five Star Bank. During the quarter ended June 30, 2017, the Company sold 571,597 shares of its common stock under this program at a weighted average price of $30.59, representing gross proceeds of $17.5 million. Net proceeds received were $16.7 million.

Valuation Adjustments Related to Scott Danahy Naylon

The Company completed an evaluation of the contingent earn out liability related to its 2014 acquisition of SDN, resulting in a contingent consideration liability adjustment of $1.2 million. Concurrently, an impairment test of goodwill related to SDN was also performed and it was determined that the carrying value of SDN goodwill exceeded its fair value, resulting in a $1.6 million non-cash goodwill impairment charge.

Net Interest Income and Net Interest Margin

  • Net interest income was $27.4 million for the quarter, $427 thousand higher than the first quarter of 2017 and $2.2 million higher than the second quarter of 2016.
  • Average interest-earning assets for the quarter were $3.56 billion, $78.6 million higher than the first quarter of 2017 and $326.8 million higher than the second quarter of 2016. The primary driver of the increase was loans, which in turn were funded primarily by increased deposits. Net interest margin was negatively impacted by a flattening of the yield curve in the quarter.
  • Second quarter 2017 net interest margin was 3.18%, five basis points lower than the first quarter of 2017 and the second quarter of 2016. Net interest margin was negatively impacted by a flattening of the yield curve in the quarter.

Noninterest Income

Noninterest income was $9.3 million for the quarter as compared to $7.8 million in the first quarter of 2017 and $8.9 million in the second quarter of 2016.

  • Excluding the net gain on investment securities from all periods, noninterest income was $9.1 million in the second quarter of 2017, $1.5 million higher than $7.6 million in the first quarter of 2017, and $1.6 million higher than $7.5 million in the second quarter of 2016.
  • A significant component of the increase was the $1.2 million non-cash fair value adjustment of contingent consideration liability previously described.

Noninterest Expense

Noninterest expense was $23.9 million for the quarter as compared to $20.9 million in the first quarter of 2017 and $22.1 million in the second quarter of 2016.

  • The increase in noninterest expense as compared to the first quarter of 2017 was primarily the result of the $1.6 million non-cash goodwill impairment charge combined with higher salaries and employee benefits and occupancy and equipment expenses related to our organic growth initiatives, including the residential mortgage lending expansion. In addition, health care claims were approximately $385 thousand higher in the second quarter of 2017.
  • The increase in noninterest expense as compared to the second quarter of 2016 was due to the same factors described above, partially offset by lower professional services expense in 2017. In addition, late in the first quarter of 2016 the Company implemented several initiatives to reduce operating expenses which were reflected in the second quarter of 2016.

Income Taxes

Income tax expense was $2.7 million for the quarter as compared to $3.2 million in the first quarter of 2017 and $2.9 million in the second quarter of 2016. The effective tax rate was 30.5% for the quarter as compared to 28.5% for the first quarter of 2017 and 28.8% for the second quarter 2016. The higher effective tax rate was a result of the $1.6 million non-cash goodwill impairment charge related to the SDN acquisition, partially offset by the $1.2 million non-cash fair value adjustment of the contingent consideration liability related to the SDN acquisition, both of which were non-taxable adjustments.

Balance Sheet and Capital Management

Total assets were $3.89 billion at June 30, 2017, up $31.7 million from $3.86 billion at March 31, 2017, and up $305.9 million from $3.59 billion at June 30, 2016. The increases were largely the result of loan growth funded primarily by deposit growth.

Total loans were $2.52 billion at June 30, 2017, up $114.2 million, or 4.8%, from March 31, 2017, and up $305.0 million, or 13.8%, from June 30, 2016.

  • Commercial business loans totaled $398.3 million, up $22.8 million, or 6.1%, from March 31, 2017, and up $48.9 million, or 14.0%, from June 30, 2016.
  • Commercial mortgage loans totaled $724.1 million, up $49.1 million, or 7.3%, from March 31, 2017, and up $109.9 million, or 17.9%, from June 30, 2016.
  • Residential real estate loans totaled $432.1 million, up $3.9 million, or 0.9%, from March 31, 2017, and up $23.7 million, or 5.8%, from June 30, 2016.
  • Consumer indirect loans totaled $826.7 million, up $40.6 million, or 5.2%, from March 31, 2017, and up $129.8 million, or 18.6%, from June 30, 2016.

Total deposits were $3.13 billion at June 30, 2017, a decrease of $37.2 million from March 31, 2017, and an increase of $274.5 million from June 30, 2016. The decrease from March 31, 2017, was primarily due to public deposit seasonality, partially offset by the impact of CD and money market campaigns in the second quarter of 2017. The increase from June 30, 2016, was primarily the result of successful business development efforts in both municipal and retail banking, including the second quarter deposit campaigns. Public deposit balances represented 27% of total deposits at June 30, 2017, compared to 31% at March 31, 2017 and 27% at June 30, 2016.

Short-term borrowings were $347.5 million at June 30, 2017, up $44.2 million from March 31, 2017, and up $9.2 million from June 30, 2016.

Shareholders’ equity was $347.6 million at June 30, 2017, compared to $325.7 million at March 31, 2017, and $322.2 million at June 30, 2016. Common book value per share was $21.84 at June 30, 2017, an increase of $0.63 or 3.0% from $21.21 at March 31, 2017, and an increase of $0.86 or 4.1% from $20.98 at June 30, 2016. The increases in shareholders’ equity and common book value per share are attributable to common stock issued through our “at-the-market” stock offering plus net income less dividends paid, net of the change in unrealized gain (loss) on investment securities, a component of accumulated other comprehensive loss.

During the second quarter of 2017, the Company declared a common stock dividend of $0.21 per common share. The second quarter of 2017 dividend returned 53% of second quarter net income to common shareholders.

Regulatory capital ratios at June 30, 2017, were higher than the prior quarter and prior year due to increased capital as a result of the recent “at-the-market” stock offering:

  • Leverage Ratio was 7.70%, compared to 7.30% and 7.39% at March 31, 2017, and June 30, 2016, respectively.
  • Common Equity Tier 1 Ratio was 9.86%, compared to 9.46% and 9.63% at March 31, 2017, and June 30, 2016, respectively.
  • Tier 1 Risk-Based Capital was 10.48%, compared to 10.11% and 10.33% at March 31, 2017, and June 30, 2016, respectively.
  • Total Risk-Based Capital was 13.09%, compared to 12.75% and 13.08% at March 31, 2017, and June 30, 2016, respectively.

Credit Quality

Non-performing loans were $12.6 million at June 30, 2017, as compared to $8.0 million at March 31, 2017, and $6.6 million at June 30, 2016. The increase was primarily the result of the second quarter internal downgrade of two commercial credit relationships with unpaid principal balances totaling $5.6 million.

  • The ratio of non-performing loans to total loans was 0.50% at June 30, 2017, compared to 0.33% at March 31, 2017, and 0.30% at June 30, 2016.
  • The provision for loan losses for the quarter was $3.8 million, an increase of $1.1 million from the first quarter of 2017 and an increase of $1.9 million from the second quarter of 2016. The increase in provision is primarily attributable to growth in the total loan portfolio combined with the impact of the downgrade of one commercial credit relationship. The downgrade necessitated a provision and increase in allowance for loan losses of approximately $925 thousand. The relationship was 30-59 days past due as of June 30, 2017, and we continue to monitor the situation closely.
  • The ratio of annualized net charge-offs to total average loans was 0.29% in the current quarter, compared to 0.45% in the prior quarter and 0.19% in the second quarter of 2016.
  • The ratio of allowance for loan losses to total loans was 1.32% at June 30, 2017, 1.29% at March 31, 2017, and 1.29% at June 30, 2016.
  • The ratio of allowance for loan losses to non-performing loans was 263% at June 30, 2017, 388% at March 31, 2017, and 435% at June 30, 2016.
