C&F Financial Corporation Announces Net Income for 2017

WEST POINT, Va., Jan. 25, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- C&F Financial Corporation (the Corporation) (NASDAQ:CFFI), the one-bank holding company for C&F Bank (the Bank), today reported net income of $6.6 million, or $1.88 per common share assuming dilution, for the year ended December 31, 2017, compared to $13.5 million, or $3.89 per common share assuming dilution, for the year ended December 31, 2016. The Corporation reported a net loss of $3.3 million for the fourth quarter of 2017, or $(0.95) per common share assuming dilution, compared with net income of $3.1 million, or $0.89 per common share assuming dilution, for the fourth quarter of 2016.

The results for the year and the three months ended December 31, 2017 include the effect of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (the Act), which was signed into law on December 22, 2017. Among other things, the Act permanently lowers the federal corporate income tax rate to 21% from the maximum rate prior to the passage of the Act of 35%, effective January 1, 2018. As a result of the reduction of the federal corporate income tax rate, U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP) require companies to re-measure their deferred tax assets and deferred tax liabilities, including those accounted for in accumulated other comprehensive income, as of the date of the Act’s enactment and record the corresponding effects in income tax expense in the fourth quarter of 2017. As a result of the permanent reduction in the corporate income tax rate, the Corporation recognized a $6.6 million reduction in the value of its net deferred tax asset and recorded a corresponding incremental income tax expense of $6.6 million in the Corporation’s consolidated results of operations for the fourth quarter of 2017. This additional income tax expense reduced the Corporation’s earnings per common share assuming dilution by $1.91 and $1.90 for the year and three months ended December 31, 2017, respectively. Management expects the negative effect of the Act on the Corporation’s results of operations in 2017 will be recovered over future periods when the lower corporate income tax rate of 21% will be used to calculate income tax expense, which is expected to positively affect the Corporation’s net income. The Corporation’s evaluation of the effect of the Act is subject to refinement for up to one year after enactment.

For the year ended December 31, 2017, the Corporation’s returns on average common equity (ROE) and on average assets (ROA) were 4.58 percent and 0.45 percent, respectively, compared to 9.90 percent and 0.96 percent, respectively, for the year ended December 31, 2016. For the fourth quarter of 2017, on an annualized basis, the Corporation’s ROE and ROA were (9.02) percent and (0.89) percent, respectively, compared to 8.87 percent and 0.86 percent, respectively, for the fourth quarter of 2016, on an annualized basis. Excluding the effect of the revaluation of the Corporation’s net deferred tax asset, for the year ended December 31, 2017, the Corporation’s adjusted ROE and adjusted ROA were 9.20 percent and 0.90 percent, respectively, and for the fourth quarter of 2017 on an annualized basis, the Corporation’s adjusted ROE and adjusted ROA were 9.05 percent and 0.89 percent, respectively.

“The one-time adjustment to the Corporation’s net deferred tax asset that triggered an incremental income tax expense of $6.6 million resulted in a net loss for the quarter. However, excluding this effect, adjusted net income for the fourth quarter of 2017 increased to $3.3 million, compared to $3.1 million in the fourth quarter 2016,” said Larry Dillon, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of C&F Financial Corporation. “For the year 2017, excluding the effect of the Act’s enactment, adjusted net income exceeded $13 million. At the retail banking segment, we expanded into the Charlottesville market and continued growth in our commercial lending portfolio. The mortgage banking segment increased loan production during 2017 as a result of robust residential home demand in the markets we serve, which we expect to continue in 2018. The consumer finance segment experienced a slight decline in its loan portfolio during 2017; however, we feel very positive about the quality of the portfolio with the delinquencies at their lowest year-end level since 2012.”

“While the reduced corporate income tax rate resulted in a net loss for the fourth quarter of 2017 and reduced earnings for 2017, we expect that C&F will benefit from the lower rate going forward,” said Tom Cherry, President of C&F Financial Corporation. “Even with the loss for the fourth quarter resulting from the revaluation of C&F’s net deferred tax asset, we continued to maintain capital levels well above the regulatory minimums to be considered well capitalized under current regulatory standards, as well as under the fully phased-in Basel III capital rules. In fact, because of our strong capital levels we were able to increase our fourth quarter dividend by three percent.”

Retail Banking Segment. C&F Bank, which comprises the retail banking segment, reported net income of $5.0 million for the year ended December 31, 2017, compared to net income of $8.2 million for the year ended December 31, 2016. For the fourth quarter of 2017, the Bank reported a net loss of $1.0 million, compared to net income of $2.2 million for the fourth quarter of 2016. The retail banking segment’s results for both the year and the quarter ended December 31, 2017 included income tax expense of $3.5 million associated with the revaluation of C&F Bank’s net deferred tax asset. The retail banking segment’s income before income taxes for the year ended December 31, 2017 was $10.7 million, compared to $9.6 million for the year ended December 31, 2016. For the fourth quarter of 2017, the Bank reported income before income taxes of $3.0 million, compared to $2.8 million for the fourth quarter of 2016.

The primary factor positively influencing the retail banking segment’s income before income taxes for both the year and quarter ended December 31, 2017 was the effect of loan growth on interest income, as average loans at C&F Bank increased $51.5 million or 7.6 percent during the fourth quarter of 2017 and $57.3 million or 8.8 percent during the year ended December 31, 2017 over the same periods of 2016. Partially offsetting the positive effect of loan growth during 2017 were (1) a decline in the yield on the investment portfolio as a result of replacing matured and called securities with lower-yielding securities, (2) a higher provision for loan losses resulting from loan growth, (3) higher operating expenses associated with strengthening C&F Bank’s technology infrastructure, growing its branch network and commercial lending teams, implementing its digital initiatives and promoting brand awareness and (4) one time revenue items totaling $991,000 before taxes during 2016 associated with the Bank’s debit card program, bank-owned life insurance program and a gain on sale of Bank-owned property.

The results for the year and fourth quarter of both 2017 and 2016 include the acquisition accounting adjustments recorded in connection with the 2013 acquisition of Central Virginia Bank. The pre-tax net accretion attributable to these adjustments recognized for the year and quarter ended December 31, 2017 was $1.1 million and $279,000, respectively, compared to $1.9 million and $523,000 for the year and quarter ended December 31, 2016, respectively.

C&F Bank’s total nonperforming assets were $5.4 million at December 31, 2017, compared to $4.4 million at December 31, 2016. Nonperforming assets at December 31, 2017 included $5.3 million in nonaccrual loans, compared to $4.2 million at December 31, 2016, and $168,000 in other real estate owned (OREO), compared to $195,000 at December 31, 2016. The increase in nonaccrual loans was due to one commercial relationship totaling $3.8 million, which was classified as nonaccrual in the first quarter of 2017. This relationship was restructured in 2017 and is reported in troubled debt restructurings (TDR) at December 31, 2017. The loans associated with this relationship were previously identified as problem credits and classified accordingly. Specific reserves have also been established, which management believes are adequate to absorb probable losses on these loans. The OREO decrease during 2017 was due to sales.

Mortgage Banking Segment. C&F Mortgage Corporation, which comprises the mortgage banking segment, reported net income of $985,000 for the year ended December 31, 2017, compared to net income of $1.7 million for the year ended December 31, 2016. For the fourth quarter of 2017, C&F Mortgage Corporation reported a net loss of $373,000, compared to net income of $110,000 for the fourth quarter of 2016. The mortgage banking segment’s results for both the year and the quarter ended December 31, 2017 included income tax expense of $589,000 associated with the revaluation of C&F Mortgage Corporation’s net deferred tax asset. The mortgage banking segment’s income before income taxes for the year ended December 31, 2017 was $2.6 million, compared to $2.8 million for the year ended December 31, 2016. For the fourth quarter of 2017, C&F Mortgage Corporation reported income before income taxes of $337,000, compared to $192,000 for the fourth quarter of 2016.

Loan production decreased 0.5 percent and increased 10.4 percent during the fourth quarter and year ended December 31, 2017, respectively, compared to the same periods in 2016. The higher loan production during 2017 resulted in higher gains on sales of loans and higher production-based fee income. However, there has been a decline in the interest margin on loans held for sale as a result of the flattening of the yield curve during 2017 whereby short-term interest rates, which affect the segment’s borrowing costs, have been rising while long-term rates have remained relatively unchanged. Income before income taxes also declined because of fixed personnel and overhead costs associated with the segment’s branch expansion in the Chesapeake, Virginia market, which began in late 2016.

Consumer Finance Segment. C&F Finance Company, which comprises the consumer finance segment, reported net income of $2.3 million for the year ended December 31, 2017, compared to net income of $4.5 million for the year ended December 31, 2016. For the fourth quarter of 2017, C&F Finance Company reported a net loss of $958,000, compared to net income of $888,000 for the fourth quarter of 2016. The consumer finance segment’s results for both the year and the quarter ended December 31, 2017 included income tax expense of $1.7 million associated with the revaluation of C&F Finance Company’s net deferred tax asset. The consumer finance segment’s income before income taxes for the year ended December 31, 2017 was $6.5 million, compared to $7.4 million for the year ended December 31, 2016. For the fourth quarter of 2017, C&F Finance Company reported income before income taxes of $1.1 million, compared to $1.4 million for the fourth quarter of 2016.

The decline in income before income taxes for the year and quarter ended December 31, 2017, compared to the same periods in 2016, was principally due to (1) lower interest income attributable to a decline in average loans and (2) net interest margin compression attributable to lower loan yields resulting from competition in the non-prime automobile loan business and the acquisition of loan contracts with higher credit metrics, coupled with higher-cost variable-rate borrowings resulting from increases in short-term interest rates since March 31, 2016. The negative effect of these factors was offset in part by a decrease in the provision for loan losses mainly resulting from a decrease in outstanding loans during 2017.

The net charge-off ratio for 2017 increased to 5.82 percent from 5.55 percent for 2016 because of the higher level of charge-offs during 2017 resulting from the lower resale value of repossessed automobiles. The combination of the lower provision and higher charge-offs during 2017 resulted in a decline in the allowance for loan losses to $24.4 million at December 31, 2017 from $25.4 million at December 31, 2016. The ratio of the allowance for loan losses to total loans increased to 8.34 percent at December 31, 2017, compared to 8.33 percent at December 31, 2016, because loans declined to $292.0 million at December 31, 2017 from $304.4 million at December 31, 2016. At December 31, 2017, total delinquent loans as a percentage of total loans declined to 5.17 percent from 5.87 percent at December 31, 2016.

Other Segments. Other segments, which principally includes the Corporation’s holding company operations and wealth management subsidiary, reported an aggregate net loss of $1.7 million for the year ended December 31, 2017, compared to a net loss of $975,000 for the year ended December 31, 2016. For the fourth quarter of 2017, other segments reported an aggregate net loss of $941,000, compared to a net loss of $145,000 for the fourth quarter of 2016. The other segments’ results for both the year and the quarter ended December 31, 2017 included income tax expense of $874,000 associated with the revaluation of their net deferred tax assets. The other segments’ loss before income taxes was $1.9 million for each of the years ended December 31, 2017 and 2016. For the fourth quarter of 2017, the other segments reported a loss before income taxes of $392,000, compared to a loss before income taxes of $499,000 for the fourth quarter of 2016. The improvement during the fourth quarter of 2017 resulted from an increase in earnings at the Corporation’s wealth management subsidiary, which added a new wealth management group in Williamsburg and Newport News, Virginia during the fourth quarter of 2016.

Capital and Dividends. The Corporation declared dividends during the year ended December 31, 2017 totaling $1.33 per share. The Corporation declared a quarterly cash dividend of 34 cents per share during the fourth quarter of 2017, which represented a 3.0 percent increase over the prior quarter’s dividend amount of 33 cents per common share and was paid on January 1, 2018. The Board of Directors of the Corporation continually reviews the amount of cash dividends per share and the resulting dividend payout ratio in light of changes in economic conditions, current and future capital requirements, and expected future earnings.

Use of Certain Non-GAAP Financial Measures. The accounting and reporting policies of the Corporation conform to generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP) in the United States and prevailing practices in the banking industry. However, certain non-GAAP measures are used by management to supplement the evaluation of the Corporation’s performance. These include (i) adjusted net income, adjusted earnings per share, adjusted ROE and adjusted ROA excluding the one-time effect of the revaluation of deferred tax assets and liabilities and the corresponding effect on income tax expense associated with the enactment of the the Act on December 22, 2017 and (ii) fully-taxable equivalent (FTE) measures of interest income on loans-FTE, interest income on securities-FTE, total interest income-FTE and net interest income-FTE.

Management believes that the exclusion of the significant one-time effect of the Act provides users of the Corporation’s financial information a presentation of the Corporation’s financial results that is representative of its ongoing operations. Management uses these non-GAAP measures to evaluate the Corporation’s operating performance on a basis comparable to other financial periods. In this non-GAAP presentation, the income tax expense related to the revaluation of the Corporation’s net deferred tax asset is added to the Corporation’s net income. The resulting adjusted net income is used in the calculations of adjusted earnings per share, adjusted ROE and adjusted ROA.

Management believes that FTE measures provide users of the Corporation’s financial information a presentation of the performance of interest earning assets on a basis that is comparable within the banking industry. Management routinely reviews interest income of the Corporation on an FTE basis. In this non-GAAP presentation, interest income is adjusted to reflect tax-exempt interest income on an equivalent before-tax basis. This measure ensures the comparability of net interest income arising from both taxable and tax-exempt sources.

These non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered an alternative to GAAP-basis financial statements, and other bank holding companies may define or calculate these or similar measures differently. A reconciliation of the non-GAAP financial measures used by the Corporation to evaluate and measure the Corporation’s performance to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures is presented below.
