ACNB Corporation Reports 2022 Second Quarter and Year-To-Date Financial Results

2022 Second Quarter and Year-To-Date Highlights

  • Net income for the three months and quarter ended June 30, 2022, totaled $8,630,000, which was an increase of $122,000 or 1.43% from comparable period results for the three months ended June 30, 2021. Basic earnings per share was $0.99 and $0.98 for the three months ended June 30, 2022 and 2021, respectively. The increase in net income for the second quarter of 2022 was driven by increases in net interest income of $1,235,000 and commissions from insurance sales of $955,000.
  • Net income for the six months ended June 30, 2022, totaled $15,229,000, with basic earnings per share of $1.75. This reflects a decrease of $750,000 or 4.69% from comparable period results for the six months ended June 30, 2021. The lower net income for the first half of 2022 was primarily a result of reduced income from residential mortgage loans sold of $1,771,000.
  • Net interest income for the six months ended June 30, 2022, totaled $36,857,000, which was an increase of $963,000 or 2.68% over comparable period results for the six months ended June 30, 2021.
  • The net interest margin for the second quarter of 2022 increased 46 basis points to 3.13% from 2.67% in the first quarter of 2022 and 8 basis points to 3.13% from 3.05% in the second quarter of 2021. Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) fees and purchase accounting accretion for the second quarter of 2022 totaled $1,014,000, compared to $1,058,000 and $3,035,000 in the first quarter of 2022 and second quarter of 2021, respectively.
  • Total loans outstanding were $1,509,792,000 at June 30, 2022, as compared to $1,557,776,000 at June 30, 2021, for a decrease of 3.08%. Year over year, the decrease in loans was largely attributable to the payoff of PPP loans and a reduction in residential mortgage loans. PPP loans declined by $93,112,000 during this period. Conversely, from December 31, 2021 to June 30, 2022, loans increased by $41,365,000, or 2.82%, due primarily to strong loan originations in the commercial and government lending portfolios during the period. Excluding payoffs for PPP loans, loans grew by 4.1% from December 31, 2021 to June 30, 2022.
  • Total deposits were $2,363,773,000 at June 30, 2022, as compared to $2,338,035,000 at June 30, 2021, for an increase of 1.10%. Year over year, the increase in deposits was a result of customers holding higher balances across a broad base of accounts due to tepid economic activity resulting from the effects of the current economic environment.
  • Quarterly cash dividends paid to ACNB Corporation shareholders in the first half of 2022 totaled $4,521,000, or $0.52 per common share. Compared to a year ago, ACNB Corporation paid a $0.52 dividend per common share in the first half of 2021, which included a special dividend of $0.02 per common share. On July 21, 2022, the Corporation announced the regular quarterly cash dividend declared for the third quarter of 2022 in the amount of $0.26 per common share, payable on September 15, 2022, to shareholders of record as of September 1, 2022, which is consistent with the dividend paid in the first and second quarters of 2022.
  • ACNB Corporation repurchased 88,225 shares of ACNB Corporation common stock during the second quarter of 2022 at a cost of $2,905,000. As of June 30, 2022, up to an additional 118,704 shares of ACNB Corporation common stock were available for repurchase under the common stock repurchase program originally announced in February 2021.
  • Effective June 1, 2022, Jason H. Weber became Executive Vice President/Treasurer & Chief Financial Officer of ACNB Corporation and ACNB Bank. As previously announced, Mr. Weber was selected as the successor to David W. Cathell, who announced in September 2021 his intention to retire from all of his positions with ACNB Corporation and its subsidiaries effective the close of business on May 31, 2022.
  • As previously announced, effective February 28, 2022, ACNB Insurance Services, Inc. completed the acquisition of the business and assets of Hockley & O’Donnell Insurance Agency, LLC, Gettysburg, PA. This transaction is the most recent acquisition of a book of insurance business by ACNB Insurance Services, Inc., which is anticipated to increase gross premium dollars for the agency by approximately 30%. Systems integration related to this acquisition occurred as of June 27, 2022.

GETTYSBURG, Pa., July 29, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- ACNB Corporation (NASDAQ: ACNB), financial holding company for ACNB Bank and ACNB Insurance Services, Inc., announced financial results for the three months ended June 30, 2022, with net income of $8,630,000. Compared to net income of $8,508,000 for the three months ended June 30, 2021, this was an increase of $122,000 or 1.43% from comparable period results. The increase in net income for the three months ended June 30, 2022, was driven by increases in net interest income of $1,235,000 and commissions from insurance sales of $955,000. The increase in net interest income was a result of the rise in net interest margin of 8 basis points and in average earning assets of $96,303,000 period over period. The increase in commissions from insurance sales was primarily attributable to the acquisition of the business and assets of Hockley & O’Donnell Insurance Agency in the first quarter of 2022. The acquisition added $719,000 of revenue during the second quarter of 2022. For the three months ended June 30, 2022 and 2021, basic earnings per share was $0.99 and $0.98, respectively, which is an increase of $0.01 per share or 1.02%.

The Corporation reported net income of $15,229,000 for the six months ended June 30, 2022. Compared to net income of $15,979,000 for the six months ended June 30, 2021, this is a decrease of $750,000 or 4.69% from comparable period results. Basic earnings per share was $1.75 and $1.83 for the six months ended June 30, 2022 and 2021, respectively, which is a decrease of $0.08 or 4.37%. These year-to-date 2022 results were primarily due to lower income from residential mortgage loans sold of $1,771,000.

“As the second quarter of 2022 came to a close, the financial services industry was in uncharted waters as the Federal Reserve raised interest rates by 75 basis points, which was the third increase this year and the largest since 1994. In these unusual and unpredictable times, ACNB Corporation reported strong financial performance for the quarter despite the downward pressure of PPP loan payoffs and the decline in income from the sale of residential mortgage loans. Solid loan growth and the deployment of excess cash into higher-yielding securities contributed to earnings during the first half of 2022,” said James P. Helt, ACNB Corporation President & Chief Executive Officer. “With a strong capital base, ample liquidity, and superior asset quality as we enter the second half of 2022, we are cautiously optimistic as well as poised and prepared for the turbulence of the unknown interest rate environment and any other recessionary challenges ahead.”

Mr. Helt continued, “A major project for ACNB Corporation’s subsidiary bank, ACNB Bank, is the construction of the new Upper Adams Office, slated to open in October 2022, which will consolidate the operations of three current community banking offices in this Pennsylvania geography. Due to evolving customer behaviors and expectations, branch optimization is a component of our strategic plan as we simultaneously seek both profitable and sustainable organic and inorganic growth. As always, our vision for growth is fundamental to the success of both the banking subsidiary of ACNB Bank and the insurance agency subsidiary of ACNB Insurance Services, Inc. as we strive to enhance long-term shareholder value and to be the independent financial services provider of choice in the core markets served by building relationships and finding solutions.”

Revenues

Total revenues, defined as net interest income plus noninterest income, for the first half of 2022 were $47,392,000, or a 0.78% decrease from total revenues of $47,763,000 for the first half of 2021.

Net Interest Income and Margin

Net interest income increased by $963,000 to $36,857,000 for the first six months of 2022, which was an increase of 2.68% compared to $35,894,000 for the first six months of 2021. The improvement in net interest income was driven by an increase in average earning assets from $2,444,884,000 in the first half of 2021 to $2,566,700,000 in the first half of 2022. The net interest margin for the first half of 2022 was 2.90%, compared to 2.96% for the same period of 2021.

Noninterest Income

Noninterest income for the first six months of 2022 was $10,535,000, a decrease of $1,334,000 or 11.24% compared to the first six months of 2021. Income from residential mortgage loans sold decreased 80.61%, while income from commissions from insurance sales increased 23.86%, from the first half of 2021 to the first half of 2022.

Noninterest Expense

Noninterest expense for the first six months of 2022 was $28,288,000, an increase of $770,000 or 2.80% from the same period in 2021. The increase was driven by increases in equipment, professional and other expenses. Equipment expense was $3,045,000 for the first six months of 2022, compared to $2,602,000 for the first six months of 2021. This rise in equipment expense was attributable to the additional ongoing expenses related to the Bank’s core systems conversion in late 2021. Professional expense was $739,000 for the first six months of 2022, compared to $468,000 for the first six months of 2021. This increase was a result of the additional expenses related to the transition of the Corporation’s independent audit firm, as well as higher expenses due to the use of executive recruiters to fill key roles within the Bank.

Loans

Total loans outstanding were $1,509,792,000 at June 30, 2022. Loans outstanding increased by $41,365,000, or 2.82%, since December 31, 2021, and decreased by $47,984,000, or 3.08%, from June 30, 2021 to June 30, 2022. Year over year, the decrease in loans was largely attributable to the payoff of PPP loans and a reduction in residential mortgage loans. PPP loans declined by $93,112,000 during this period. Excluding PPP loan payoffs, loans increased $59,664,000, or 4.1%, from December 31, 2021 to June 30, 2022, due primarily to strong loan originations in the commercial and government lending portfolios during the period. Despite the intense competition in the Corporation’s market areas, there is a continued focus internally on asset quality and disciplined underwriting standards in the loan origination process. As a result of stable loan risk metrics, combined with low credit losses in the portfolio, the provision for loan losses for the first six months of 2022 was $0.

Deposits

Total deposits were $2,363,773,000 at June 30, 2022. Deposits decreased by $62,616,000, or 2.58%, since December 31, 2021, and increased by $25,738,000, or 1.10%, from June 30, 2021 to June 30, 2022. Year over year, the increase in deposits was a result of customers holding higher balances across a broad base of accounts due to tepid economic activity resulting from the effects of the current economic environment. Since December 31, 2021, the decrease in deposits was due to customers beginning to seek alternative investments as market interest rates rose during the first half of 2022.

Stockholders’ Equity

Total stockholders’ equity was $247,032,000 at June 30, 2022, compared to $272,114,000 at December 31, 2021, and $266,366,000 at June 30, 2021. Year to date, the $25,082,000 decline in stockholders’ equity from December 31, 2021 to June 30, 2022, was primarily attributable to the change in accumulated other comprehensive income due to unrealized losses in the securities portfolio resulting from the increase in market interest rates during the year. These unrealized losses were also the primary driver of the decline in the book value per share, which was $31.35 and $28.64 at December 31, 2021 and June 30, 2022, respectively.

Dividends and Share Repurchases

Quarterly cash dividends paid to ACNB Corporation shareholders in the first half of 2022 totaled $4,521,000, or $0.52 per common share. In the first half of 2021, ACNB Corporation also paid $0.52 per common share, including a special dividend of $0.02 per common share, for total dividends paid to shareholders in the amount of $4,530,000. On July 21, 2022, the Corporation announced the regular quarterly cash dividend declared for the third quarter of 2022 in the amount of $0.26 per common share, payable on September 15, 2022, to shareholders of record as of September 1, 2022, which is consistent with the dividend paid in the first and second quarters of 2022.

Further, ACNB Corporation repurchased 88,225 shares of ACNB Corporation common stock during the second quarter of 2022 at a cost of $2,905,000. As of June 30, 2022, up to an additional 118,704 of ACNB Corporation’s common stock may be repurchased under the common stock repurchase program originally announced on February 25, 2021.

ACNB Corporation Update

Effective June 1, 2022, Jason H. Weber became Executive Vice President/Treasurer & Chief Financial Officer of ACNB Corporation and ACNB Bank. As previously announced, Mr. Weber was selected as the successor to David W. Cathell, who announced in September 2021 his intention to retire from all of his positions with ACNB Corporation and its subsidiaries effective the close of business on May 31, 2022.

The new office location at 3425 Biglerville Road, Biglerville, will offer enhanced services and conveniences, as well as will deploy new design concepts in the office lobby with the goal of streamlining and improving the customer experience. Upon completion of construction of the Upper Adams Office in Fall 2022, the plan is to consolidate operations of the three current ACNB Bank offices in the Upper Adams geography as part of the Bank’s branch optimization strategy and continued endeavors to enhance operational efficiencies and performance. It was recently announced that the new Upper Adams Office will open for business on October 17, 2022.

ACNB Insurance Services, Inc. Update
