  • Bank released from OCC Formal Agreement
  • Total loans outstanding increase by 8.6% versus first quarter 2013
  • Total demand deposits increase by 7.2% versus first quarter 2013

RIVERHEAD, N.Y., July 24, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Suffolk Bancorp (the "Company") (Nasdaq:SUBK), parent company of Suffolk County National Bank (the "Bank"), today reported net income for the second quarter of 2013 of $2.8 million, or $0.24 per diluted common share, compared to net income of $4.2 million, or $0.43 per diluted common share, a year ago. For the six months ended June 30, 2013, the Company recorded net income of $5.5 million, or $0.47 per diluted common share, versus $5.4 million, or $0.55 per diluted common share, for the comparable 2012 June year-to-date period. Both the quarterly and year-to-date 2012 results were positively impacted by a $2.4 million credit to the provision for loan losses.

The decline in second quarter 2013 earnings versus 2012 resulted from the aforementioned $2.4 million credit to the provision for loan losses in 2012 coupled with a $1.1 million (7.2%) decline in net interest income in 2013 due to a 56 basis point narrowing of the net interest margin. The Company did not record any provision for loan losses in the second quarter of 2013. Partially offsetting these factors was a $1.4 million (10.2%) reduction in total operating expenses and a $63 thousand (2.6%) increase in non-interest income in the second quarter of 2013.

President and CEO Howard C. Bluver stated, "I am very pleased with our second quarter results. Many of the initiatives we have put in place on both the revenue and expense side are well ahead of schedule and are creating positive financial results and accelerating momentum.

First and foremost, the geographic and product diversification strategies implemented in our lending businesses are working well. We saw quarter over quarter sequential growth in our total loan portfolio of $71 million, from $824 million at the end of the first quarter to $895 million at the end of the second quarter, an 8.6% quarterly growth rate. Further, our current book of approved loans waiting to close, as well as our existing pipeline, are strong and growing. Each of our lending businesses, commercial, multi-family and residential, are contributing to this accelerating momentum.

On the commercial side, the Melville Loan Production Office opened in late 2012 to serve both western Suffolk County and eastern Nassau County, is producing well ahead of expectations. While an improving economy on Long Island is contributing to this performance, it is clear we are increasing our market share by protecting our eastern Suffolk lending franchise while simultaneously expanding west. Further, the recent Team Leaders and Relationship Managers we hired are bringing to us high quality customers with whom they have had relationships for many years. We are confident that the model we have put in place to expand our lending businesses works well – accordingly, we have identified the Garden City business market as our next expansion priority and we expect to announce the opening and staffing of a new Loan Production Office in that market later this year.

On the expense side, we are working diligently to balance the increased investments needed to grow our lending businesses with offsetting operating expense reductions in other areas, and believe we will see continued improvement as we move through 2013. For example, we are studying our existing branch network for cost saving opportunities. As a result of this work, we recently provided notice to our regulator and affected customers that we will be closing our Water Mill and Middle Island branches later this year. Once implemented, these closings will reduce total operating expenses by approximately $800 thousand per year. We continue to analyze our branch network and each of our lines of business to identify further opportunities for cost savings, which will be an ongoing focus of our management team across our entire Company.

Notwithstanding the strong loan growth described above, we still maintained a relatively large cash position at the end of the second quarter of $172 million in overnight deposits with correspondent banks, or 10% of total assets. Even with this cash position, our net interest margin during the quarter was an attractive 3.83%, as we maintained an extraordinarily low cost of funds of 21 basis points. As we continue to redeploy our cash into high quality loans and other interest-earning assets, we believe we have a unique opportunity to improve both our margin and our non-interest income line. As an example of the latter, in June, we funded a $38 million investment in a Bank Owned Life Insurance product, which, going forward, will initially yield approximately 6.00% on a tax-equivalent basis.

Finally, despite the challenging economic and interest rate environment, we are making significant strides in all phases of our business. We are gratified that the OCC, our primary regulator, recognized what we have accomplished and terminated the Formal Agreement during the second quarter. This will enable us to emphasize future financial performance with an even greater focus."

Earnings Summary for the Quarter Ended June 30, 2013

The Company recorded net income of $2.8 million during the second quarter of 2013 versus net income of $4.2 million in the comparable 2012 period. The reduction in 2013 net income resulted primarily from the previously noted $2.4 million credit to the provision for loan losses in 2012 and a $1.1 million decrease in net interest income in 2013, partially offset by a $1.4 million reduction in total operating expenses and a $63 thousand increase in non-interest income in the second quarter of 2013 versus the comparable 2012 period.

The $2.4 million credit to the provision for loan losses during the second quarter of 2012 resulted from workout and asset disposition activities undertaken in that period. The Company did not record any provision for loan losses in the second quarter of 2013.

The decrease in second quarter 2013 net interest income of $1.1 million resulted from a 56 basis point reduction in the Company's net interest margin to 3.83% in 2013 versus 4.39% in 2012, offset in part by a $104 million increase in average total interest-earning assets. The decrease in the net interest margin was due to the continued low level of interest rates, a shift in the Company's average balance sheet mix from loans (down 5.8% versus second quarter 2012) into lower-yielding investment securities coupled with a high level of liquid assets in the form of low-yielding overnight interest-bearing deposits which represented 16% of average total interest-earning assets in the second quarter of 2013.

The Company's second quarter 2013 average total interest-earning asset yield was 4.02%, down 64 basis points from the comparable 2012 period principally due to a 104 basis point reduction in the average yield on the Company's securities portfolio to 3.68% in 2013 versus 4.72% in 2012. The securities portfolio increased by $130 million to $433 million at June 30, 2013 versus the comparable 2012 date. At June 30, 2013, the securities portfolio had an unrealized pre-tax gain of $174 thousand and an estimated weighted average life of 5.6 years.

The Company's average cost of total interest-bearing liabilities declined by 13 basis points to 0.35% in the second quarter of 2013 versus 0.48% in the second quarter of 2012. The Company's lower funding cost resulted largely from average core deposits of $1.2 billion in 2013, with average demand deposits representing 41% of average total deposits. Total deposits increased by $34 million to $1.5 billion at June 30, 2013 compared to December 31, 2012 and increased by $84 million versus June 30, 2012.

Total operating expenses declined by $1.4 million or 10.2% in 2013 versus 2012 primarily as the result of a reduction in employee compensation and benefits. Employee compensation and benefits expense declined by $2.1 million or 24.0% in the second quarter of 2013, largely due to $1.7 million in savings related to the termination of a post-retirement life insurance plan coupled with lower pension costs in 2013. These cost savings were partially offset by increases in occupancy (up $382 thousand) and other operating expenses (up $268 thousand). The increase in occupancy expense was due to higher rent and utilities costs, while the increase in other operating expense reflected higher 2013 costs for marketing and advertising, OREO disposition, commercial insurance and mortgage recording tax.

The Company recorded income tax expense of $816 thousand in the second quarter of 2013 resulting in an effective tax rate of 22.8% versus $1.3 million and 24.2%, respectively, in the comparable period a year ago.

Earnings Summary for the Six Months Ended June 30, 2013

The Company recorded net income of $5.5 million during the first six months of 2013 versus net income of $5.4 million in the comparable 2012 period. The increase in 2013 net income primarily reflects a $2.3 million reduction in total operating expenses, a $1.1 million increase in non-interest income and a lower effective tax rate when compared to last year. Largely offsetting these improvements were a $1.6 million decrease in net interest income in 2013 and the already noted $2.4 million credit to the provision for loan losses in 2012 as compared to no provision for loan losses recorded in 2013.

Total operating expenses decreased by $2.3 million or 7.8% to $26.5 million in 2013 from $28.7 million in 2012, primarily due to reductions in employee compensation and benefits ($2.1 million), consulting and professional services ($494 thousand) and accounting and audit fees ($544 thousand).

The $1.1 million increase in non-interest income resulted from improvements in several categories, most notably net gain on the sale of portfolio loans of $445 thousand, net gain on the sale of mortgage loans originated for sale of $412 thousand and net gain on the sale of securities available for sale of $392 thousand.

The decrease in net interest income was due to a 44 basis point narrowing of the Company's net interest margin to 3.89% in 2013 from 4.33% a year ago.

The Company recorded income tax expense of $1.3 million in the first six months of 2013 resulting in an effective tax rate of 19.2% versus $2.0 million and 27.4%, respectively, in the comparable 2012 period. The reduction in the Company's effective tax rate in 2013 versus 2012 resulted from a change in the expected tax rate at which the deferred tax asset will be realized in future periods.

Asset Quality

Non-accrual loans, excluding loans categorized as held-for-sale, totaled $17 million or 1.92% of total loans outstanding at June 30, 2013 versus $16 million or 2.10% of loans outstanding at December 31, 2012 and $54 million or 6.38% of loans outstanding at June 30, 2012. The decrease in non-accrual loans at June 30, 2013 compared to June 30, 2012 resulted primarily from the sales in 2012 of non-performing and other criticized and classified loans as part of management's strategy to resolve legacy credit issues. The allowance for loan losses as a percentage of total non-accrual loans amounted to 101% at June 30, 2013 versus 108% at December 31, 2012 and 54% at June 30, 2012.

Total accruing loans delinquent 30 days or more amounted to $4 million or 0.44% of loans outstanding at June 30, 2013 versus $14 million or 1.81% of loans outstanding as of December 31, 2012 and $14 million or 1.63% of loans outstanding at June 30, 2012.

Total criticized and classified loans were $73 million at June 30, 2013, $99 million at December 31, 2012 and $179 million at June 30, 2012. Criticized loans are those loans that are not classified but require some degree of heightened monitoring. Classified loans were $47 million at June 30, 2013, $54 million at December 31, 2012 and $130 million at June 30, 2012. The allowance for loan losses as a percentage of total classified loans was 36%, 33% and 23%, respectively, at the same dates.

At June 30, 2013, the Company had $16 million in troubled debt restructurings ("TDRs"), primarily consisting of commercial and industrial loans, commercial real estate loans and residential mortgages totaling $6 million, $5 million and $4 million, respectively. The Company had TDRs amounting to $17 million at December 31, 2012 and $26 million at June 30, 2012.

As of June 30, 2013, the Company's allowance for loan losses amounted to $17 million or 1.93% of period-end loans outstanding. The allowance as a percentage of loans outstanding was 2.28% at December 31, 2012 and 3.45% at June 30, 2012.

Net loan charge-offs of $541 thousand were recorded in the second quarter of 2013 versus net loan recoveries of $53 thousand in the first quarter of 2013 and net loan charge-offs of $8.4 million in the second quarter of 2012. As a percentage of average total loans outstanding, these net amounts represented, on an annualized basis, 0.26% for the second quarter of 2013, (0.03)% for the first quarter of 2013 and 3.73% for the second quarter of 2012.

The Company held no OREO at June 30, 2013. The Company held OREO amounting to $1.6 million and $2.2 million at December 31, 2012 and June 30, 2012, respectively. The Company sold its remaining OREO property during the second quarter of 2013.

Capital

Total stockholders' equity was $159 million at June 30, 2013 compared to $164 million at December 31, 2012 and $139 million at June 30, 2012. The reduction in stockholders' equity versus December 31, 2012 was due to an $11 million decrease in accumulated other comprehensive income, net of tax, resulting from the negative impact of higher interest rates in 2013 on the value of the Company's available for sale investment portfolio. The increase in stockholders' equity versus June 30, 2012 reflects the Company's $25 million private placement of common stock during the third quarter of 2012.

The Company's return on average common stockholders' equity was 6.70% for the six months ended June 30, 2013 versus 7.91% for the comparable 2012 period.

The Bank's Tier I leverage, Tier I risk-based and total risk-based capital ratios were 9.69%, 14.64% and 15.89%, respectively, at June 30, 2013. Each of these ratios exceeds the regulatory guidelines for a "well capitalized" institution, the highest regulatory capital category.

The Company's capital ratios exceeded all regulatory requirements at June 30, 2013. The Company's tangible common equity to tangible assets ratio (non-GAAP financial measure) was 9.49% at June 30, 2013 versus 9.96% at December 31, 2012 and 8.78% at June 30, 2012. The 47 basis point reduction in the Company's tangible common equity ratio versus December 31, 2012 resulted from a combination of growth in total assets in 2013 and the previously noted decrease in accumulated other comprehensive income. The increase in the Company's tangible common equity ratio versus June 30, 2012 reflects the $25 million private placement of common stock during the third quarter of 2012.

Safe Harbor Statement Pursuant to the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995

This press release includes statements that look to the future. These can include remarks about the Company, the banking industry, the economy in general, expectations of the business environment in which the Company operates, projections of future performance, and potential future credit experience. These remarks are based upon current management expectations, and may, therefore, involve risks and uncertainties that cannot be predicted or quantified and are beyond the Company's control and are subject to a variety of uncertainties that could cause future results to vary materially from the Company's historical performance, or from current expectations. These remarks may be identified by such forward-looking statements as "should," "expect," "believe," "view," "opportunity," "allow," "continues," "reflects," "typically," "usually," "anticipate," or similar statements or variations of such terms. Factors that could affect the Company include particularly, but are not limited to: a failure by the Company to meet the deadlines under SEC rules for filing its periodic reports (or any permitted extension thereof); increased capital requirements mandated by the Company's regulators; the Company's ability to raise capital; changes in interest rates; increases or decreases in retail and commercial economic activity in the Company's market area; variations in the ability and propensity of consumers and businesses to borrow, repay, or deposit money, or to use other banking and financial services; results of regulatory examinations; any failure by the Company to maintain effective internal control over financial reporting; larger-than-expected losses from the sale of assets; potential litigation or regulatory action relating to the matters resulting in the Company's failure to file on time its Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarters ended March 31, 2011, June 30, 2011, and September 30, 2011 or resulting from the revisions to earnings previously announced on April 12, 2011 or the restatement of its financial statements for the quarterly period ended September 30, 2010 and year ended December 31, 2010; and the potential that net charge-offs are higher than expected or for further increases in our provision for loan losses. Further, it could take the Company longer than anticipated to implement its strategic plans to increase revenue and manage non-interest expense, or it may not be possible to implement those plans at all. Finally, new and unanticipated legislation, regulation, or accounting standards may require the Company to change its practices in ways that materially change the results of operations. We have no obligation to update any forward-looking statements to reflect events or circumstances after the date of this document.

(1) The ratio of tangible common equity to tangible assets, or TCE ratio, is calculated by dividing total common stockholders' equity by total assets, after reducing both amounts by intangible assets. The TCE ratio is not required by GAAP or by applicable bank regulatory requirements, but is a metric used by management to evaluate the adequacy of our capital levels. Since there is no authoritative requirement to calculate the TCE ratio, our TCE ratio is not necessarily comparable to similar capital measures disclosed or used by other companies in the financial services industry. Tangible common equity and tangible assets are non-GAAP financial measures and should be considered in addition to, not as a substitute for or superior to, financial measures determined in accordance with GAAP. With respect to the calculation of the actual unaudited TCE ratio as of June 30, 2013, reconciliations of tangible common equity to GAAP total common stockholders' equity and tangible assets to GAAP total assets are set forth below:
Total stockholders' equity $159,032 Total assets $1,648,297
Less: intangible assets (2,950) Less: intangible assets (2,950)
Tangible common equity $156,082 Tangible assets $1,645,347
