FNCB Bancorp, Inc. Announces Second Quarter 2022 Net Income and Results of Operations

DUNMORE, Pa., July 29, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- FNCB Bancorp, Inc. (NASDAQ: FNCB; www.fncb.com), the parent company of Dunmore-based FNCB Bank (the “Bank”), (collectively, "FNCB") today reported net income of $5.7 million, or $0.29 per basic and diluted share, for the three months ended June 30, 2022, an increase of $0.5 million, or 9.7%, compared to $5.2 million, or $0.26 per share for the same period of 2021. Higher net interest income, coupled with a reduction in the provision for loan and lease losses, were the primary factors leading to the improvement in second quarter 2022 earnings. These increases to earnings were partially offset by a decrease in non-interest income and an increase in non-interest expense. For the six months ended June 30, 2022, net income totaled $10.1 million, or $0.51 per basic and diluted share, a decrease of $1.0 million, or 8.8%, from $11.1 million, or $0.55 per basic or diluted share, for the same six months of 2021.  The reduction in earnings comparing the year-to-date periods of 2022 and 2021 was due primarily to increases in non-interest expense and the provision for loan and lease losses and a decrease in non-interest income, partially mitigated by an increase in net interest income.

For the three and six months ended June 30, 2022, the annualized return on average assets was 1.37% and 1.23%, respectively, compared to 1.38% and 1.49%, respectively, for the same period of 2021.  The annualized return on average equity was 17.57% and 14.18%, respectively for the three and six months ended June 30 ,2022, compared to 13.37% and 14.31%, respectively, for the comparable periods of 2021. FNCB declared and paid dividends to shareholders of common stock of $0.075 per share for the second quarter of 2022 and $0.150 per share for the six months ended June 30, 2022, a 25.0% increase, compared to $0.060 per share and $0.120 per share for the same periods of 2021. 

Second quarter 2022 results as compared to the second quarter of 2021: 

 ?Second quarter net income was $5.7 million, or $0.29 per share, compared to $5.2 million, or $0.26 per share for the second quarter of 2021, an increase of $0.5 million, or 9.7%;
 ?Yield on earning assets (FTE) decreased 22 basis points to 3.58% for the second quarter of 2022 from 3.80% for the same quarter of 2021, but improved 13 basis points on a linked-quarter basis from 3.45% for the first quarter of 2022;
 ?Cost of funds decreased 8 basis points to 0.22% from 0.30% comparing the second quarters of 2022 and 2021, but increased 8 basis points on a linked-quarter basis from 0.14% for the first quarter of 2022;
 ?Net interest margin (FTE) contracted 16 basis points to 3.42% for the second quarter of 2022, compared to 3.58% for the same period of 2021, but widened 7 basis points on a linked-quarter basis from 3.35% for the first quarter of 2022;
 ?Efficiency ratio was 53.38% for the second quarter of 2022 compared to 51.86% for the second quarter of 2021.

Summary financial position at June 30, 2022 as compared to December 31, 2021:

 ?Total assets increased $28.8 million, or 1.7%, to $1.693 billion at June 30, 2022 from $1.664 billion at December 31, 2021;
 ?Loans and leases, net of deferred loan fees and unearned income, increased $109.3 million, or 11.2%, to $1.088 billion at June 30, 2022 from $979.4 million at December 31, 2021;
 ?Total deposits decreased $28.1 million, or 1.9% to $1.427 billion at June 30, 2022 from $1.455 billion at December 31, 2021;
 ?Non-performing loans as a percentage of total loans improved to 0.26% at June 30, 2022 from 0.39% at December 31, 2021;
 ?The Bank was well capitalized with total risk-based capital and leverage ratios of 13.90% and 9.32%, respectively, at June 30, 2022, and 14.64% and 8.92%, respectively, at December 31, 2021.

"We are very pleased with our second quarter 2022 results," stated Gerard A. Champi, President and CEO. "FNCB's solid performance continues to reflect our efforts to enhance interest income while being disciplined in managing funding costs and credit quality. We experienced strong loan growth during the first half of 2022 attributable to robust organic generation as well as full integration of our new commercial equipment financing product offering, which has exceeded expectations. Additionally, we remain focused on advancing our digital footprint and I am excited to announce that in the second quarter of 2022, through an alliance with a leading provider, we began offering a fully-digital, collaborative point of sale solution for residential mortgage and home equity loans. This new platform allows us to streamline the entire mortgage origination process and provide our customers with exceptional service from time of application right through closing," concluded Champi. 

Summary Results 

Net interest income on a tax-equivalent basis increased $1.6 million, or 13.3%, to $13.9 million for the three months ended June 30, 2022 from $12.3 million for the comparable period of 2021. The improvement in tax-equivalent net interest income primarily reflected an increase in tax-equivalent interest income of $1.5 million or 11.7%, to $14.5 million for the second quarter of 2022 from $13.0 million for the same quarter of 2021, coupled with a decrease in interest expense of $0.1 million, or 14.1%, to $0.7 million from $0.8 million comparing the second quarter of 2022 and 2021, respectively. The increase in tax-equivalent interest income largely reflected higher volumes of earning assets, as total average earning assets increased $254.2 million, or 18.6%, to $1.625 billion for the three months ended June 30, 2022 from $1.371 billion for the same three months of 2021. Specifically, total securities averaged $552.9 million for the second quarter of 2022, an increase of $143.8 million, or 35.1%, from $409.1 million for the second quarter of 2021, reflecting the redeployment of excess liquidity in the latter half of 2021 into the investment portfolio. In addition, average total loans and leases increased $113.0 million, or 11.8%, to $1.067 billion for the second quarter of 2022 from $954.4 million for the same quarter of 2021, which was largely due to strong organic loan demand, FNCB's new commercial equipment financing and leasing product offering and purchases of third-party originated loan pools. Partially offsetting the positive impact of earning asset growth, was a decrease in the tax-equivalent yield on average earning assets of 22 basis points to 3.58% for the three months ended June 30, 2022, compared to 3.80% for the same three months of 2021. A reduction in net loan origination fees from PPP loans contributed to a 13-basis point decrease in the tax-equivalent yield on the loan portfolio to 4.20% from 4.33% comparing the second quarters of 2022 and 2021, respectively. Loan origination fees from PPP loans were $0.3 million for the three months ended June 30, 2022, a decrease of $0.8 million, or 72.3%, from $1.1 million for the same three months of 2021. The tax-equivalent yield on the investment portfolio decreased 21 basis points to 2.42% for the second quarter of 2022 from 2.63% for the same quarter of 2021. The $0.1 million, or 14.1%, reduction in interest expense was largely due to a decrease in funding costs, specifically average deposit rates, partially offset by an increase in average borrowed funds. FNCB's cost of funds declined by 8 basis points to 0.22% for the three months ended June 30, 2022 from 0.30% for the same three months of 2021. Specifically, the average rate paid for interest-bearing deposits decreased 15 basis points to 0.13% for the second quarter of 2022 from 0.28% for the same period of 2021, which reflected a lag in increasing deposits rates, coupled with continued migration from higher-costing time deposits into lower-costing non-maturity deposits. Interest-bearing liabilities averaged $1.216 billion for the second quarter of 2022, an increase of $186.0 million, or 18.1%, from $1.030 billion for the same quarter of 2021. Specifically, average borrowed funds increased $103.6 million, or 1005.1%, to $113.9 million for the three months ended June 30, 2022 from $10.3 million for the three months ended June 30, 2021. The increase in borrowed funds was entirely due to an increase in utilization of advances through the FHLB of Pittsburgh. In addition, average interest-bearing deposits increased $82.3 million, or 8.1%, to $1.102 billion from $1.020 billion, comparing the second quarters of 2022 and 2021, respectively. However, the overall increase in average deposits had little impact on interest expense as the composition of total deposits shifted, reflecting continued migration from time deposits to non-maturity deposits. Average interest-bearing demand deposits increased $84.0 million, or 11.8%, to $796.8 million for the second quarter of 2022 compared to $712.8 million for the same quarter of 2021, while average savings deposits increased $20.6 million, or 16.7%, to $143.9 million from $123.3 million comparing the second quarters of 2022 and 2021, respectively. Conversely, average time deposits decreased $22.4 million, or 12.2%, to $161.2 million for the three months ended June 30, 2022 from $183.6 million for the same three months of 2021. FNCB's tax-equivalent net interest margin compressed 16 basis points to 3.42% for the second quarter of 2022 from 3.58% for the same quarter of 2021. Additionally, the net interest spread declined 14 basis points to 3.36% for the three months ended June 30, 2022 from 3.50% for the same three months of 2021. The reduction in margin and spread largely reflected decreases in yields earned on loans and investments, coupled with the decline in PPP loan origination fees recognized, comparing the second quarters of 2022 and 2021. On a linked-quarter basis, the tax-equivalent net interest margin widened 7 basis points from 3.35%, while the net interest rate spread widened 5 basis points from 3.31%, for the first quarter of 2022, due to the increase in interest rates.

On a year-to-date basis, tax-equivalent net interest income increased $3.0 million, or 12.7%, to $26.4 million for the six months ended June 30, 2022 from $23.4 million for the comparable period of 2021. The improvement in tax-equivalent net interest income was due to a $2.5 million, or 9.7%, increase in tax-equivalent interest income, coupled with a $0.5 million, or 34.0%, decrease in interest expense. The increase in tax-equivalent interest income for the year-to-date period resulted primarily from the $239.9 million, or 17.7%, increase in average earning asset balances. Average total security balances increased $161.3 million, or 41.8%, to $547.0 million for the six months ended June 30, 2022 from $385.7 million for the same period of 2021. In addition, average loan balances increased $96.5 million, or 10.3%, to $1.034 billion for the six months ended June 30, 2022, compared to $937.5 million for the same six months of 2021. Tax equivalent yield on average earning assets, on a year-to-date basis, decreased 25 basis points to 3.52% from 3.77%. Comparing the first half of 2022 and 2021, the tax-equivalent yield on the loan portfolio decreased 17 basis points to 4.14% from 4.31%, respectively, while the tax-equivalent yield on the investment portfolio declined 33 basis points to 2.41% from 2.74%, respectively. Similar to the quarterly period, loan yields were impacted by a $1.4 million, or 60.1%, reduction in net loan origination fees recognized on the forgiveness of PPP loans to $0.9 million for the six months ended June 30, 2022 from $2.3 million for the same six months of 2021. The $0.5 million, or 34.0%, decrease in interest expense resulted primarily from a decrease in funding costs, partially offset by an increase in average interest-bearing deposits and an increase in average borrowed funds. FNCB's total cost of funds decreased 14 basis points to 0.18% for the six months ended June 30, 2022 from 0.32% for the same six months of 2021.  The cost of interest-bearing deposits decreased 18 basis points to 0.12% from 0.30%, respectively, comparing the six months ended June 30, 2022 and 2021. Specifically, comparing the year-to-date periods of 2022 and 2021, the rates paid on time deposits, interest-bearing demand deposits and savings deposits decreased 54 basis points, 10 basis points and 1 basis point, respectively. Regarding volumes of interest-bearing liabilities, total interest-bearing deposits increased $97.4 million, or 9.65%, to $1.107 billion for the first half of 2022 from $1.009 billion for the same period of 2021, while borrowed funds averaged $80.8 million for the six months ended June 30, 2022, an increase of $70.5 million, or 683.9%, from $10.3 million for the six months of 2021. On a year-to-date basis, the tax-equivalent net interest margin compressed 15 basis points to 3.38% in 2022 from 3.53% in 2021.

For the three months ended June 30, 2022, non-interest income decreased $52 thousand, or 3.0%, to $1.6 million from $1.7 million for the three months ended June 30, 2021. The decrease was largely due to shifting market conditions which resulted in net losses on equity securities, net losses on the sale of available-for-sale debt securities and a reduction in loan-related fees. These reductions were partially offset by an increase in deposit service charges. For the three months ended June 30, 2022, FNCB recorded a net loss on equity securities of $82 thousand, a decrease of $118 thousand, or 327.8%, compared to a net gain on equity securities of $36 thousand for the same three months of 2021. Additionally, FNCB recorded a net loss of $35 thousand realized on the sale of available-for-sale debt securities during the three months ended June 30, 2022. Comparatively, no net gains or losses were recognized on the sale of available-for-sale debt securities during the three months ended June 30, 2021. In addition, loan related fees decreased $54 thousand, or 51.9%, to $50 thousand from $104 thousand comparing the three months ended June 30, 2022 and 2021. These reductions were partially offset by a $109 thousand, or 11.4%, increase in deposit service charges to $1.1 million for the three months ended June 30, 2022, compared to $1.0 million for the three months ended June 30, 2021. For the six months ended June 30, 2022, non-interest income decreased $1.0 million, or 23.1%, to $3.5 million from $4.5 million for the same period of 2021.  FNCB recorded a net loss on equity securities of $200 thousand, compared to a net gain of $400 thousand recorded for June 30, 2021. Additionally, a net gain of $213 thousand was realized on the sale of available-for-sale debt securities during the six months ended June 30, 2021, compared to the net loss of $35 thousand for the same six months of 2022.  Comparing the six months ended June 30, 2022 and 2021, net gains recognized on the sale of mortgages held for sale decreased $239 thousand, reflecting changing market conditions, while loan-related fees decreased $130 thousand due to a reduction in servicing fees associated with loans originated under the Federal Reserve Bank's Main Street Lending Program. In addition, non-interest income for the six months ended June 30, 2021 included a $426 thousand settlement from a bank-owned life insurance death benefit claim. These decreases were partially offset by $285 thousand, or 15.6%, increase in deposit service charges, to $2.1 million for the six months ended June 30, 2022, compared to $1.8 million for the same period of 2021.

Non-interest expense totaled $8.2 million for the three months ended June 30, 2022, a $1.0 million, or 13.9%, increase from $7.2 million for the three months ended June 30, 2021. The increase primarily reflected increases in salaries and employee benefits, data processing expense, professional fees and regulatory assessments. Salaries and employee benefits increased $481 thousand, or 11.9%, to $4.5 million for the second quarter of 2022 from $4.0 million for the same quarter of 2021, which included personnel-related costs associated with the onboarding of staff for the new commercial equipment financing and leasing product offering, increases in payroll taxes and higher retirement costs. Data processing expenses increased $124 thousand, or 14.0%, to $1.0 million for the three months ended June 30, 2022, compared to $0.9 million for the same three months of 2021, while professional fees increased $101 thousand to $0.2 million from $0.1 million comparing the second quarters of 2022 and 2021. The increases in data processing expense and professional fees reflected additional costs associated with FNCB's initiative to enhance its digital banking platforms. FNCB also experienced an increase of $84 thousand, or 75.0%, in regulatory assessments to $0.2 million for the three months ended June 30, 2022 from $0.1 million for the same three months of 2021 due primarily to balance sheet growth. For the six months ended June 30, 2022, non-interest expense increased $2.4 million or 16.5%, to $16.8 million compared to $14.4 million for the same period of 2021, primarily due to similar increases experienced for the quarterly period. 

Asset Quality

FNCB's asset quality improved during the first half of 2022, as total non-performing loans decreased $1.1 million, or 28.1%, to $2.8 million at June 30, 2022, representing 0.26% of total loans and leases, gross at June 30, 2022 from $3.9 million, or 0.39% of total loans and leases, gross at December 31, 2021. Year-over-year, non-performing loans decreased $1.8 million, or 39.0%, from $4.6 million, or 0.46% of total loans, gross, at June 30, 2021. FNCB’s loan delinquency rate (total delinquent loans as a percentage of total loans, gross) decreased to 0.39% at June 30, 2022 compared to 0.55% at December 31, 2021, and 0.56% at June 30, 2021. FNCB recorded a provision for loan and lease losses of $62 thousand for the second quarter of 2022 compared to a $155 thousand provision for the same quarter of 2021. For the six months ended June 30, 2022, the provision for loan and lease losses totaled $821 thousand compared to $341 thousand for the same period of 2021. The increase was primarily attributable to increases in loan and lease volumes.  The allowance for loan and lease losses was $13.4 million, or 1.23% of total loans and leases, gross, at June 30, 2022, compared to $12.4 million, or 1.27% of total loans and leases, gross, at December 31, 2021 and $12.3 million, or 1.26% of total loans and leases, gross, at June 30, 2021.

Financial Condition

Total assets increased $28.8 million, or 1.7%, to $1.693 billion at June 30, 2022 from $1.664 billion at December 31, 2021. The change in total assets primarily reflected increases in loans and leases, net of ALLL, partially offset by decreases in cash and cash equivalents and available-for-sale debt securities. Loans and leases increased $108.3 million, or 11.2%, to $1.075 billion at June 30, 2022 from $967.0 million at December 31, 2021. Increases were experienced across all loan categories, which reflected originations from the new commercial equipment financing product offerings, strong organic loan demand and the purchase of several pools of third-party originated loans. Cash and cash equivalents decreased $71.6 million, or 72.3%, to $27.4 million at June 30, 2022 from $99.0 million at December 31, 2021. Available-for-sale debt securities decreased $27.0 million, or 5.2%, to $495.6 million at June 30, 2022 from $522.6 million at December 31, 2021. Total deposits decreased $28.1 million, or 1.9%, to $1.427 billion at June 30, 2022 from $1.455 billion at December 31, 2021. Meanwhile, total borrowed funds increased $98.1 million to $128.4 million at June 30, 2022 from $30.3 million at December 31, 2021. The increase was entirely due to increased utilization of advances through the FHLB of Pittsburgh. 

Total shareholders’ equity decreased $37.0 million, or 22.7%, to $125.5 million at June 30, 2022 from $162.5 million at December 31, 2021. The decrease in capital was primarily due to an accumulated other comprehensive loss of $34.4 million at June 30, 2022, compared to accumulated other comprehensive income of $6.3 million at December 31, 2021. This $40.7 million reduction was related primarily to the depreciation in the fair value of FNCB's available-for-sale debt securities, net of deferred taxes. Also impacting capital was net income for the six months ended June 30, 2022 of $10.1 million, partially offset by $3.5 million utilized for the repurchase of common shares under a board authorized stock repurchase program and $3.0 million in dividends declared and paid for the six months ended June 30, 2022. Tangible book value was $6.38 per share at June 30, 2022, compared to $8.13 per share at December 31, 2021, reflecting the reduction in fair value of available-for-sale securities. FNCB Bank was considered well capitalized with total risk-based capital and Tier 1 leverage ratios of 13.90% and 9.32%, respectively, at June 30, 2022, and 14.64% and 8.92%, respectively, at December 31, 2021.

The words “may,” “could,” “should,” “will,” “would,” “believe,” “anticipate,” “estimate,” “expect,” “intend,” “plan,” “project,” “future” and similar expressions are intended to identify forward-looking statements. The following factors, among others, could cause FNCB’s financial performance to differ materially from the plans, objectives, expectations, estimates and intentions expressed in such forward-looking statements: the effect of the novel Coronavirus Disease 2019 ("COVID-19") pandemic on FNCB and its customers, the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania and the United States, related to the economy, overall financial stability and the global supply chain; the COVID-19 pandemic and actions taken to control its spread; government intervention in the U.S. financial system including the effects of recent rate actions taken by the Federal Open Market Committee, and legislative, tax, accounting and regulatory actions and reforms, including, but not limited to, the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (the “CARES Act”), the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act (the “Dodd-Frank Act”) and the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act; political instability; the ability of FNCB to manage credit risk; weakness in the economic environment, in general, and within FNCB’s market area; the deterioration of one or a few of the commercial real estate loans with relatively large balances contained in FNCB’s loan portfolio; greater risk of loan defaults and losses from concentration of loans held by FNCB, including those to insiders and related parties; if FNCB’s portfolio of loans to small and mid-sized community-based businesses increases its credit risk; if FNCB’s ALLL is not sufficient to absorb actual losses or if increases to the ALLL were required; FNCB is subject to interest-rate risk and any changes in interest rates could negatively impact net interest income or the fair value of FNCB's financial assets; if management concludes that the decline in value of any of FNCB’s investment securities is other-than-temporary could result in FNCB recording an impairment loss; if FNCB’s risk management framework is ineffective in mitigating risks or losses to FNCB; if FNCB is unable to successfully compete with others for business; a loss of depositor confidence resulting from changes in either FNCB’s financial condition or in the general banking industry; if FNCB is unable to retain or grow its core deposit base; inability or insufficient dividends from its subsidiary, FNCB Bank; if FNCB loses access to wholesale funding sources; interruptions or security breaches of FNCB’s information systems; any systems failures or interruptions in information technology and telecommunications systems of third parties on which FNCB depends; security breaches; if FNCB’s information technology is unable to keep pace with growth or industry developments or if technological developments result in higher costs or less advantageous pricing; the loss of management and other key personnel; dependence on the use of data and modeling in both its management’s decision-making generally and in meeting regulatory expectations in particular; additional risk arising from new lines of business, products, product enhancements or services offered by FNCB; inaccuracy of appraisals and other valuation techniques FNCB uses in evaluating and monitoring loans secured by real property and other real estate owned; unsoundness of other financial institutions; damage to FNCB’s reputation; defending litigation and other actions; dependence on the accuracy and completeness of information about customers and counterparties; risks arising from future expansion or acquisition activity; environmental risks and associated costs on its foreclosed real estate assets; any remediation ordered, or adverse actions taken, by federal and state regulators, including requiring FNCB  to act as a source of financial and managerial strength for the FNCB Bank in times of stress;  costs arising from extensive government regulation, supervision and possible regulatory enforcement actions; new or changed legislation or regulation and regulatory initiatives; noncompliance and enforcement action with the Bank Secrecy Act and other anti-money laundering statutes and regulations; failure to comply with numerous "fair and responsible banking" laws; any violation of laws regarding privacy, information security and protection of personal information or another incident involving personal, confidential or proprietary information of individuals; any rulemaking changes implemented by the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau; inability to attract and retain its highest performing employees due to potential limitations on incentive compensation contained in proposed federal agency rulemaking; any future increases in FNCB Bank’s FDIC deposit insurance premiums and assessments; and the success of FNCB at managing the risks involved in the foregoing and other risks and uncertainties, including those detailed in FNCB’s filings with the SEC.

FNCB cautions that the foregoing list of important factors is not all inclusive. Readers are also cautioned not to place undue reliance on any forward-looking statements, which reflect management’s analysis only as of the date of this report, even if subsequently made available by FNCB on its website or otherwise. FNCB does not undertake to update any forward-looking statement, whether written or oral, that may be made from time to time by or on behalf of FNCB to reflect events or circumstances occurring after the date of this press release. Readers should carefully review the risk factors described in the Annual Report and other documents that FNCB periodically files with the SEC, including its Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2021 and Form 10-Q for the quarter ended March 31, 2022.
