(FCOB), holding company of 1st Colonial Community Bank, today reported net income of $2.0 million, or $0.41 per diluted share, for the three months ended June 30, 2022, compared to net income of $1.7 million, or $0.34 per diluted share, for the three months ended June 30, 2021.

Robert White, President and Chief Executive Officer, commented, "We are pleased with our second quarter results and our team’s ability to deliver another quarter of exceptional performance for our shareholders. Our loan growth played a key part in our results and helped us replace the non-recurring PPP revenue. Our focus continues to be on executing our strategic priorities and delivering consistent and sustainable results. The economic environment continues to be challenging, creating some uncertainty surrounding future loan demand. Our team has and will continue to remain responsive to our clients’ needs, as we navigate through a period of rising interest rates and extremely high inflation. The focus remains high on managing our operating expenses and minimizing any impact on our bottom line. Our loan portfolio continues to perform well with our asset quality metrics remaining stable. We continue to monitor the loan portfolio for any early signs of borrower stress."

Operating Results

Net Interest Income

Net interest income for the three months ended June 30, 2022 and 2021 was $6.1 million and $5.0 million, respectively. The $1.1 million increase in net interest income was primarily attributable to a $999 thousand increase in interest income coupled with a $98 thousand decrease in interest expense. For the second quarter of 2022, average loan balances increased $76.9 million to $545.7 million from $468.8 million for the second quarter of 2021 and generated an additional $971 thousand in interest income. When compared to the first quarter of 2022, net interest income increased $350 thousand from $5.8 million. Approximately 30% of the loan portfolio is tied to the Wall Street Journal prime rate and will re-price at various times when the rate changes. For the second quarter of 2022, net loan origination income on the SBA’s Paycheck Protection Program ("PPP") loans was $89 thousand and declined $188 thousand from the second quarter of 2021 and $328 thousand from the first quarter of 2022. PPP loans outstanding were $1.3 million as of June 30, 2022.

For the first six months of 2022, net interest income grew $2.1 million, or 21.4%, to $11.9 million from $9.8 million for the same period in 2021. The increase in net interest income was primarily attributable to a $1.9 million increase in interest income accompanied with a $221 thousand decrease in interest expense. For 2022, interest income on average loans increased $2.0 million while interest income on average loans held for sale and investments declined $74 thousand and $34 thousand, respectively. Our average outstanding loan balance grew $77.7 million and was affected by a $46.0 million reduction in average PPP loans outstanding. Net PPP loan origination income decreased $67 thousand year over year. Interest expense was affected by a $203 thousand decline in interest expense related to a reduction in the rate paid on average certificates of deposit (CDs) outstanding.

The net interest margin was 3.56% for the second quarter of 2022 compared to 3.46% for the first quarter of 2022 and 3.09% for the second quarter of 2021. Net interest margin was 3.51% for the six months ended June 30, 2022 compared to 3.11% for the six months ended June 30, 2021. The improvement in net interest margin was mostly related to an increase in the average yield on interest-earning assets coupled with a reduction in the average rate paid on interest-bearing liabilities. The average yield on interest-earning assets grew 38 basis points from 3.57% for the quarter ended June 30, 2021 to 3.95% for the quarter ended June 30, 2022. Additionally, we continue to benefit from the repricing of maturing CDs. The average rates paid on CDs declined 30 basis points from 1.20% for the second quarter of 2021 to 0.90% for the second quarter of 2022. For the first two quarters of 2022, the average yield on interest-earning assets grew 30 basis points to 3.90% from 3.60% for the same period in 2021. We anticipate raising our deposit rates in the third quarter to maintain our competitive position in the market.

Loan Loss Provision

For the three and six months ended June 30, 2022, we recorded provisions to the allowance for loan losses ("allowance") of $300 thousand and $600 thousand, respectively, compared to $175 thousand and $415 thousand for the three and six months ended June 30, 2021, respectively. The loan loss provision was $300 thousand for the first quarter of 2022. Net recoveries were $248 thousand for the first half of 2022 compared to $203 thousand for the same period in 2021. The allowance as a percentage of total loans was 1.38% as of June 30, 2022 and December 31, 2021 compared to 1.26% as of June 30, 2021.

Non-interest Income

Non-interest income for the second quarter of 2022 was $1.8 million, a decrease of $456 thousand, or 20.2%, from $2.3 million for the second quarter of 2021. Income from the origination and sales of residential mortgages declined $459 thousand, or 33%, from the second quarter in 2021 due to a $17.0 million, or 37%, decline in sales. Mortgage activity was impacted by a drop in refinancing transactions and a lack of inventory in the purchase market that we believe were both caused by the increase on interest rates. During the second quarter of 2022, we earned $318 thousand in gains on the sale of SBA loans compared to $616 thousand for the comparable 2021 period. The second quarter of 2022 also includes a non-taxable bank owned life insurance ("BOLI") death benefit of $308 thousand related to a former employee. When compared to the first quarter of 2022, non-interest income for the second quarter of 2022 increased $327 thousand from $1.5 million.

For the six months ended June 30, 2022, non-interest income was $3.3 million, a decline of $1.6 million, or 32.3%, from $4.9 million for the same period in 2021. Income from the origination and sales of residential mortgages decreased $1.6 million, or 46.5%, from $3.4 million for the first two quarters of 2021 to $1.8 million for the first two quarters in 2022 due to a decline of $35.3 million in the volume of loans sold during the 2022 period. Additionally, we retained in our loan portfolio $32.0 million, or 36%, of the $90.0 million in mortgage originations in the first two quarters of 2022 compared to $18.6 million, or 17%, of the originations in the first two quarters of 2021. In the first six months of 2022 we earned $665 thousand in gains on the sale of SBA loans compared to $951 thousand in the same period of 2021.

Non-interest Expense

Non-interest expense was $5.0 million for the three months ended June 30, 2022, an increase of $258 thousand, or 5.5%, from $4.7 million for the comparable period in 2021. Personnel expenses increased $185 thousand, or 6.1%, during this period and reflects the 10.8% increase in full time equivalent employees. Additionally in the second quarter of 2022, we recognized a $195 thousand loss due to a fraudulent transaction between a long-term deposit customer and an unrelated third-party.

When compared to the first quarter of 2022, non-interest expense for the second quarter of 2022 increased $373 thousand from $4.6 million. The second quarter of 2022 was impacted by the previously mentioned loss of $195 thousand. Additionally, professional fees, impaired loan expenses and lending expenses increased $69 thousand, $51 thousand and $39 thousand, respectively. During the first quarter of 2022, we recovered $41 thousand in impaired loan expenses from the payoff of two impaired loans.

Non-interest expense was $9.5 million for the six months ended June 30, 2022 and 2021. Personnel expenses increased $243 thousand, or 4% and reflects the increase in headcount throughout 2021. Professional fees, impaired loan expenses and lending expenses declined $130 thousand, $94 thousand and $73 thousand, respectively.

Income Taxes

For the three and six months ended June 30, 2022, income tax expense was $706 thousand and $1.4 million, respectively, compared to $703 thousand and $1.4 million for the three and six months ended June 30, 2021, respectively. The non-taxable BOLI payment had a favorable impact on our income taxes in 2022.

Financial Condition

Assets

As of June 30, 2022, total assets were $735.0 million and grew $37.2 million, or 5.3%, from $697.8 million as of March 31, 2022. Total assets were $682.8 million as of December 31, 2021.

Cash and cash equivalents were $40.9 million as of December 31, 2021.

The decline in AOCI was caused by higher interest rates and the widening spreads in our government agency sponsored bonds and mortgage-backed securities.
