MILLERSBURG, Pa., July 27, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Mid Penn Bancorp, Inc. (“Mid Penn”) (NASDAQ:MPB), the parent company of Mid Penn Bank (the “Bank”), today reported net income available to common shareholders (earnings) of $2,345,000 or $0.55 per common share basic and diluted for the quarter ended June 30, 2017, compared to earnings of $2,022,000 or $0.48 per common share basic and diluted for the quarter ended June 30, 2016. The earnings per share (EPS) for the second quarter of 2017 represent a 15 percent increase when compared to the EPS for the second quarter of 2016.

For the six months ended June 30, 2017, Mid Penn’s earnings were $4,339,000 or $1.02 per common share basic and diluted, compared to earnings of $3,827,000 or $0.91 per common share basic and diluted for the same period in 2016. The EPS for the six months ended June 30, 2017 reflect an increase of over 12 percent compared to the same period in 2016.

Mid Penn also reported total assets of $1,111,876,000 as of June 30, 2017, an increase of $79,277,000 or 8 percent (16 percent annualized) compared to total assets of $1,032,599,000 as of December 31, 2016. In the first six months of 2017, Mid Penn realized favorable loan growth, primarily in commercial relationships, of $47,853,000 or 6 percent since December 31, 2016. This asset and loan growth was substantially funded by an increase in deposits of $52,095,000 or over 5 percent since year-end 2016.

As previously announced, on March 29, 2017, Mid Penn and the Bank entered into a merger agreement with The Scottdale Bank & Trust Company. The parties have been working closely together and continue to move forward with the transactions contemplated by the merger agreement.

PRESIDENT’S STATEMENT

I am very pleased to report Mid Penn's record-high earnings results for both the second quarter and first half of 2017. Our return on average equity for both the three months and six months ended June 30, 2017 exceeded 12 percent, and our year-to-date growth in total assets, loans, and deposits, when annualized, all reflected double-digit percentage increases.

Given these favorable results, the Board of Directors has declared a cash dividend of $0.13 per common share of Mid Penn stock, payable August 28, 2017 to shareholders of record as of August 9, 2017.

Delivering favorable reports of record earnings and strong franchise growth is rooted in our demonstrated ability to grow sound loans, increase lower-cost deposits, expand fee-based revenues, and control expenses - all while maintaining a priority commitment to asset quality.

Complementing our favorable core banking performance in the first half of 2017, during the second quarter, we continued our franchise expansion with the opening of two new offices. In May, we opened a full-service branch in New Holland, PA (our third Mid Penn Bank branch in Lancaster County), and, in June, we celebrated the opening of our new Miners Bank branch in Orwigsburg, PA in Schuylkill County. We also recently announced that we have received regulatory approval to re-establish an office in Halifax, PA in northern Dauphin County. We are confident that we can profitably extend our commercial, retail, and wealth management products and services to our current and prospective customers in these wonderful communities.

We look forward to the second half of 2017 and the opportunities for further growth and profitability across all of our lines of business and markets.

OPERATING RESULTS

Net Interest Income and Net Interest Margin

Net interest income was $9,410,000 for the three months ended June 30, 2017, an increase of $877,000 or 10 percent compared to net interest income of $8,533,000 for the three months ended June 30, 2016. Through the first six months of 2017, net interest income was $18,585,000, an increase of $1,637,000 or 10 percent compared to net interest income of $16,948,000 for the same period in 2016.

For the three months ended June 30, 2017, Mid Penn’s tax-equivalent net interest margin was 3.74% compared to 3.85% for the three months ended June 30, 2016. For the six months ended June 30, 2017, Mid Penn’s tax-equivalent net interest margin was 3.78% versus 3.90% for the six months ended June 30, 2016. The decrease in the net interest margin year over year was primarily attributed to the lower yield earned on the investment portfolio. For the first six months of 2017, the overall investment portfolio yield was 2.42%, compared to an investment portfolio yield of 2.91% for the same period in 2016. The reduction was attributed to Mid Penn establishing, in the first half of 2017, a $71,096,000 held-to-maturity investment portfolio comprised primarily of lower-risk and lower-yielding U.S. Treasury notes and U.S. agency mortgage-backed securities. The held-to-maturity portfolio was established to support the Bank’s growth in public fund deposit pledging requirements.

Noninterest Income

During the three months ended June 30, 2017, noninterest income was $1,362,000 reflecting a decrease of $36,000 or 3 percent compared to noninterest income of $1,398,000 for the three months ended June 30, 2016. For the six months ended June 30, 2017, noninterest income totaled $2,798,000, an increase of $168,000 or 6 percent, compared to noninterest income of $2,630,000 for the same period in 2016.

Mid Penn experienced increased origination and sales activity in Small Business Administration (“SBA”) loans, resulting in gains of $441,000 from related loan sales during the first six months of 2017, an increase of $176,000 or 66 percent compared to SBA loan sales gains of $265,000 for the first six months of 2016. More qualified small business borrowers continue to take advantage of Mid Penn’s Preferred Lender status with the SBA.

Income from fiduciary activities was $396,000 for the first six months of 2017, an increase of $151,000 or 61 percent compared to fiduciary income of $245,000 during the same period in 2016. These additional revenues were attributed to wealth management assets under management significantly increasing over the past twelve months as a result successful business development efforts by Mid Penn’s expanded team of trust and retail investment officers.

For the six months ended June 30, 2017, service charges on deposits were $379,000, an increase of $66,000 or 21 percent, compared to service charges of $313,000 for the six months ended June 30, 2016. This increase was driven by an increase in the volume of transactional deposit accounts, and by an increase in overdraft charges collected.

Net gains on sales of securities was $20,000 for the first six months of 2017, a decrease of $193,000 or 91 percent compared to net gains on sales of securities of $213,000 during the same period ended June 30, 2016. During the second quarter of 2016, Mid Penn took advantage of favorable market conditions and increased fair values on several securities to reposition some of its investment portfolio, including selling a large volume of longer-term and rate-sensitive CMOs, as well as certain municipal bonds and agency notes.

Other noninterest income declined $73,000 for the six months ended June 30, 2017 compared to the six months ended June 30, 2016. The decrease was attributed to Mid Penn realizing an $86,000 from the gain on the sale of insurance policies during the first half of 2016. The sale of the insurance policies occurred upon the dissolution of Mid Penn Insurance Services, LLC, a then wholly-owned subsidiary of Mid Penn Bank.

Noninterest Expense

During the three months ended June 30, 2017, noninterest expenses totaled $7,558,000, an increase of $637,000 or 9 percent compared to noninterest expenses of $6,921,000 for the three months ended June 30, 2016. Noninterest expenses totaled $15,360,000, an increase of $1,457,000 or 10 percent for the six months ended June 30, 2017 compared to noninterest expenses of $13,903,000 for the same period in 2016.

Salaries and employee benefits expense increased $943,000 during the first six months of 2017 versus the same period in 2016, with the increase attributable to (i) the addition of lending personnel, credit support staff, and executive management in alignment with Mid Penn’s core banking growth; (ii) added retail staff for the Oregon Pike, New Holland, and Orwigsburg offices opened after June of 2016, and (iii) increased healthcare costs from Mid Penn’s self-funded medical plan during the first half of 2017.

Occupancy expenses for the six months ended June 30, 2017 increased $195,000 or 19 percent compared to the same period in 2016, primarily due to the facility operating costs associated Mid Penn opening of three new branch offices, and loan production offices in Lancaster and Franklin Counties in Pennsylvania, during the past twelve months.

Mid Penn’s FDIC assessment increased by $88,000 or 29 percent from $300,000 during the six months ended June 30, 2016, to $388,000 during the six months ended June 30, 2017, due to the Company’s growing deposits and assets, which increased the base amount used to determine the FDIC insurance assessment.

Pennsylvania bank shares tax expense decreased $79,000 during the six months ended June 30, 2017 versus the same period in 2016, due to the additional Pennsylvania-eligible tax credits generated from Mid Penn’s donations to support education and economic development throughout the markets it serves.

FINANCIAL CONDITION

Loans
Total loans at June 30, 2017 were $862,307,000 compared to $813,924,000 at December 31, 2016, an increase of $48,383,000 or 6 percent (or an annualized loan growth rate of 12 percent). The main driver of Mid Penn’s loan growth continues to be commercial loans, including both commercial and industrial financing, and commercial real estate credits.

Deposits
Total deposits increased $52,095,000 or over 5 percent, from $935,373,000 at December 31, 2016 to $987,468,000 at June 30, 2017, due to both retail branch deposit growth and cash management sales efforts.

Investments
Mid Penn added a held-to-maturity pool to its overall investment portfolio during the first half of 2017, and at June 30, 2017, Mid Penn had $71,096,000 of amortized cost invested in held-to-maturity securities. Mid Penn’s total available-for-sale securities portfolio decreased $22,272,000 or over 16 percent, from $133,625,000 at December 31, 2016 to $111,353,000 at June 30, 2017, as some available-for-sale investments were sold to fund part of the held-to-maturity pool.

Capital
Shareholders’ equity increased by $5,169,000 or 7 percent, from $70,467,000 at December 31, 2016 to $75,636,000 at June 30, 2017. The increase was attributed to both retained earnings, and from an increase in other comprehensive income during the first six months of 2017 primarily from the unrealized appreciation (on an after-tax basis) of the available-for-sale investment portfolio since December 31, 2016. Regulatory capital ratios for both Mid Penn and the Bank exceeded regulatory “well-capitalized” levels at both June 30, 2017 and December 31, 2016.

ASSET QUALITY

Total nonperforming assets were $5,775,000 at June 30, 2017, compared to $5,759,000 at December 31, 2016 and $5,468,000 at June 30, 2016. The ratio of nonperforming assets to total loans and other real estate was 0.67% as of June 30, 2017, compared to 0.71% as of December 31, 2016, and 0.64% as of June 30, 2016. The low level of nonperforming assets has primarily been the result of both thorough underwriting and risk analysis on new extensions of credit, as well as diligent portfolio monitoring and timely collection and workout efforts. Mid Penn had net loan recoveries of $305,000 for the six months ended June 30, 2017, compared to net loan recoveries of $9,000 during the same period of 2016. In the first half of 2017, Mid Penn recovered $318,000 of principal from the successful workout of a loan relationship that was partially charged-off in 2010.

Based upon its analysis of loan and lease loss allowance adequacy, management recorded a $100,000 loan loss provision for the three months ended June 30, 2017, compared to $395,000 for the three months ended June 30, 2016. For the six months ended June 30, 2017, the recorded loan loss provision was $225,000 compared to a loan loss provision of $735,000 for the first half of 2016. The significant net principal recoveries during the first half of 2017 also added $305,000 to the quarter-end allowance for loan loss balance. The allowance for loan and lease losses as a percentage of total loans was 0.89% at June 30, 2017, compared to 0.88% at December 31, 2016, and 0.90% at June 30, 2016. Loan loss reserves as a percentage of nonperforming loans were 133% at June 30, 2017, compared to 130% at December 31, 2016, and 140% at June 30, 2016. Management believes, based on information currently available, that the allowance for loan and lease losses of $7,713,000 is adequate as of June 30, 2017 to cover specifically identifiable loan losses as well as estimated losses inherent in the portfolio.
