The Company also announced that its Board of Directors has declared a $0.24 quarterly cash dividend per outstanding share of common stock, payable on or about December 15, 2020, to stockholders of record as of the close of business on December 4, 2020.

Newly appointed President and CEO John H. Montgomery commented, “The quarterly results included non-cash charges related to goodwill impairment that was due to economic conditions triggered by the COVID-19 pandemic causing a sustained decline in stock valuation across the entire banking sector, including our Company stock, and a writedown on fixed assets from our ongoing branch optimization efforts that resulted in the quarter-end consolidation of two redundant branch locations. Given the current environment, goodwill impairment is an industry-wide issue that many banks are dealing with. While the goodwill impairment charge was material to our financial performance, it was a non-cash charge and had no effect on the Company’s or the Bank’s regulatory capital, cash flows or liquidity position. In addition, the writedown of fixed assets results in significant ongoing expense savings, positioning the Bank for improved future earnings.

“The Company also incurred a significant loan loss provision, which will better position us for pandemic-related uncertainty. In the backdrop of this uncertainty, we are happy to report that 86% of loans in deferral returned to their regular payment schedule since the prior quarter and only 2% of our loans remain in deferral. In addition, delinquencies and net charge-offs remained controlled during the quarter. However, we are not immune from the impact of COVID-19 and continue to closely monitor the difficult conditions it has placed on certain industries in our loan portfolio, in particular those in the hospitality and retail sector.

“On a personal note, while my first two months with the Bank have coincided with this challenging environment, I would like to thank the entire Community Bank team as we navigate through the issues and position the Company for the future.”

Quarterly and year-to-date results were impacted by the following:

The Company conducted a goodwill impairment analysis during the most recent quarter. The Company had goodwill of $28.4 million at June 30, 2020, which was primarily related to past bank mergers and is 100% attributable to the community banking segment. Due to the macroeconomic impacts of the pandemic and the overall industry-wide decline in value of stocks and earnings expectations in the banking sector, including the Company's stock, the Company determined its goodwill was no longer supported by its estimate of the Company’s fair value. Therefore, $18.7 million of goodwill was deemed impaired, or $3.46 per common share, and written off for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2020, reducing goodwill to $9.7 million at September 30, 2020. This non-cash charge was deemed non-core and has no impact on tangible equity, cash flows, liquidity or regulatory capital.

The Company incurred a pre-tax non-cash impairment of fixed assets of $884,000, or $0.16 per common share, as a result of the previously announced Monessen branch closure. Given the change in business purpose of the bank owned location, an appraisal was obtained to determine the property value and, as a result, the property was written down to fair value. In addition, there was a one-time $84,000 early lease termination payment from the Bethlehem branch closure. The Company expects accretive annual earnings of approximately $678,000 from the branch consolidations.

Statement of Income - Quarterly Highlights

Net interest income decreased $680,000, or 6.1%, to $10.4 million for the three months ended September 30, 2020 compared to $11.1 million for the three months ended September 30, 2019. This was an increase of $95,000, or 0.9%, compared to the three months ended June 30, 2020.

Net interest margin was 3.21% and declined 9 basis points (“ bps”) for the three months ended September 30, 2020 compared to the three months ended June 30, 2020.

Interest and dividend income decreased $1.4 million, or 11.0%, to $11.7 million for the three months ended September 30, 2020 compared to $13.1 million for the three months ended September 30, 2019. This was a decrease of $71,000 or 0.6% compared to the three months ended June 30, 2020.

Although average loans increased $115.4 million compared to the three months ended September 30, 2019, the average yield decreased 62 bps to 4.13%. This was an 8 bp decline compared to the quarter ended June 30, 2020. The current quarter loan yield compared to the quarter ended September 30, 2019 was impacted by the declines in interest rate indices in the first quarter of 2020 and the full quarter impact of Paycheck Protection Program (“PPP”) loans, which decreased loan yield approximately 11 bps. In addition, two hotel loans were placed on nonaccrual in the current quarter which resulted in reversal of $231,000 of previously accrued interest income while the loans were in deferral.

Interest income on taxable investment securities decreased $805,000, or 51.7% to $753,000 for the three months ended September 30, 2020 compared to $1.6 million for the three months ended September 30, 2019 driven by a $76.1 million decrease in average investment security balance and 69 bps decrease in average yield. The Federal Reserve’s decision to drop the benchmark interest rate resulted in the call of $59.5 million in U.S. government agency and municipal securities in the current year. In addition, there were $31.7 million of paydowns on mortgage-backed securities in the current year. The funds were partially maintained in cash or reinvested in lower rate securities.

Other interest and dividend income, which primarily consists of interest-bearing cash, decreased $309,000, or 76.3% to $96,000 for the three months ended September 30, 2020 compared to $405,000 for the three months ended September 30, 2019. Average other interest-earning assets increased $81.3 million compared to the three months ended September 30, 2019 primarily from buildup of cash as a result of calls of U.S. government agency and municipal securities and government stimulus payments, but average yield declined 353 bps due to interest rate cuts on interest-earning cash deposits held at other financial institutions.

Interest expense on deposits decreased $714,000, or 38.3%, to $1.2 million for the three months ended September 30, 2020 compared to $1.9 million for the three months ended September 30, 2019. While average interest-earning deposits increased $13.6 million, interest rate declines for all products driven by pandemic-related interest rate cuts and efforts to control pricing resulted in a 34 bp decrease in average cost compared to the three months ended September 30, 2019. Similarly, compared to the three months ended June 30, 2020, interest expense on deposits decreased $155,000 from $1.3 million, with a 9 bp decrease in average cost.

The provision for loan losses was $1.2 million for the three months ended September 30, 2020 compared to $300,000 for the three months ended June 30, 2020 and $175,000 for the three months ended September 30, 2019. The Company has an exposure in hotel loans that have been greatly impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic and were evaluated for impairment in the current quarter. Two hotels with a total principal balance of $7.9 million were determined to be impaired due to insufficient cash flows and occupancy rates and was a driving factor in a $2.3 million increase in specific reserves and current quarter provision. This was partially offset by a reduction in the qualitative factors related to economic trends and industry conditions due to improving macroeconomic conditions as the economy continues to reopen from the second quarter pandemic-related shutdown. In addition, $16.1 million of hotel loans excluded from homogenous loan pools were evaluated for impairment and determined to not require specific reserves.

Noninterest income increased $207,000, or 10.5%, to $2.2 million for the three months ended September 30, 2020, compared to $2.0 million for the three months ended September 30, 2019. Compared to the three months ended June 30, 2020, noninterest income decreased $475,000 from $2.6 million.

Service fees decreased $85,000 to $554,000 for the three months ended September 30, 2020, compared to $639,000 for the three months ended September 30, 2019 due to decrease in overdraft fees and customer usage from the pandemic. Service fees increased $67,000 compared to the three months ended June 30, 2020.

Insurance commissions increased $94,000 to $1.1 million for the three months ended September 30, 2020 compared to $985,000 for the three months ended September 30, 2019. Insurance commissions decreased $34,000 in the current quarter compared to the quarter ended June 30, 2020.

Net gain on sale of loans was $435,000 in the current period with robust mortgage loan production from refinances in the current quarter compared to $48,000 for the three months ended September 30, 2019 and $441,000 for the three months ended June 30, 2020.

A $489,000 net gain on sales of investment securities was recognized in the prior quarter June 30, 2020 to harvest gains on higher-interest mortgage-backed securities that were paying down quicker than expected.

The Company recorded a $65,000 net loss on disposal of fixed assets in the current quarter primarily related to the sale of the former Exchange Underwriters headquarters.

Other (loss) income increased $250,000 compared to the three months ended June 30, 2020 due to a $269,000 temporary impairment on mortgage servicing rights recognized in the prior period from a decline in the interest rate environment that caused increased prepayment speeds and resulted in a decrease in fair value of the serviced mortgage portfolio.

Noninterest expense increased $20.7 million, or 250.8% to $29.0 million for the three months ended September 30, 2020 compared to $8.3 million for the three months ended September 30, 2019 and increased $19.9 million, or 219.3%, compared to $9.1 million compared to the three months ended June 30, 2020. This was primarily impacted by goodwill impairment of $18.7 million and writedown on fixed assets of $884,000 as previously noted. Excluding the impact of these non-cash charges, noninterest expense increased $1.1 million, or 13.7%, to $9.4 million for the three months ended September 30, 2020 compared to $8.3 million for the three months ended September 30, 2019 and increased $320,000, or 3.5%, compared to $9.1 million compared to the three months ended June 30, 2020.

Salaries and employee benefits increased $496,000 to $5.1 million for the three months ended September 30, 2020 compared to $4.6 million for the three months ended September 30, 2019. The increase was primarily due to merit and promotional increases and $113,000 of one-time payments related to the transition and retention of a permanent CEO. Salaries and employee benefits also increased $296,000 compared to the three months ended June 30, 2020 primarily due to prior quarter deferred employee-related loan origination costs associated with PPP loans offsetting expense, partially offset by the Community Bank Cares 10% premium pay program paid during the pandemic to essential employees beginning in March through the end of June.

Occupancy expense increased $162,000 to $759,000 for the three months ended September 30, 2020 compared to $597,000 for the three months ended September 30, 2019. The increase was primarily related to a one-time $84,000 early lease termination payment from the Bethlehem branch closure and increase in property management costs.

Contracted services increased $219,000 to $531,000 for the three months ended September 30, 2020 compared to $312,000 for the three months ended September 30, 2019 primarily due to temporary employees hired to assist with loan processing and consultants used to assist in infrastructure improvements.

Data processing increased $112,000 to $482,000 for the three months ended September 30, 2020 compared to $370,000 for the three months ended September 30, 2019 primarily due to technology investments.

Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (“FDIC”) assessment expense increased $167,000 to $172,000 for the three months ended September 30, 2020 compared to $5,000 for the three months ended September 30, 2019 due to deposit insurance fund credits approved for banks with less than $10 billion in assets that were fully utilized in prior periods.

Legal fees and professional fees increased $44,000 to $161,000 for the three months ended September 30, 2020 compared to $117,000 for the three months ended September 30, 2019 due to fees associated with the retention of a permanent CEO in the current period.

Advertising decreased $60,000 to $148,000 for the three months ended September 30, 2020 compared to $208,000 for the three months ended September 30, 2019 due to reduced marketing initiatives during the pandemic.

Other noninterest expense decreased $65,000 to $919,000 for the three months ended September 30, 2020 compared to $984,000 for the three months ended September 30, 2019 primarily due to decreases in travel-related, meals and telephone costs from employee work-at home arrangements during the pandemic.

Statement of Income - Year-to-Date Highlights

Net interest income decreased $965,000, or 3.0%, to $31.3 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2020 compared to $32.2 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2019.

Interest and dividend income decreased $2.4 million, or 6.2%, to $35.7 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2020 compared to $38.1 million the nine months ended September 30, 2019.

Although average loans increased $92.0 million, primarily driven by PPP and mortgage loans, the loan yield for the nine months ended September 30, 2020 decreased 45 bps compared to the nine months ended September 30, 2019. The current period loan yield was significantly impacted by the 150 bp decline in the Wall Street Journal Prime Rate in March 2020, which resulted in immediate decrease in interest rates on adjustable rate loans linked to that index. In addition, PPP loans decreased the loan yield approximately 7 bps in the current year.

Interest income on taxable investment securities decreased $1.4 million, or 33.0%, to $2.9 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2020 compared to $4.3 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2019 driven by a $60.0 million decrease in average investment securities primarily from significant calls of U.S. government agency securities and paydowns on mortgage-backed securities in a declining interest rate environment, which were replaced with lower-yielding securities. Current period yield benefited from approximately $231,000 in discount accretion from U.S. government agency calls.

Interest from other interest-earning assets, which primarily consists of interest-earning cash, decreased $679,000, or 61.9% for the nine months ended September 30, 2020 compared to the nine months ended September 30, 2019 even though average balances increased $48.0 million primarily related to funds received from investment security activity. The impact on interest income was primarily due to declines on interest rates earned on deposits at other financial institutions, which resulted in a 253 bp decrease in yield.

Interest expense on deposits decreased $1.3 million, or 23.5%, to $4.1 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2020 compared to $5.4 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2019. While average interest-bearing deposits increased $15.2 million, interest rate declines for all products driven by pandemic-related interest rate cuts and efforts to control pricing resulted in a 21 bp decrease in average cost compared to the nine months ended September 30, 2019.

The provision for loan losses was $4.0 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2020, compared to $550,000 for the nine months ended September 30, 2019. The pandemic resulted in a dramatic increase in unemployment and recessionary economic conditions in the current year. Based on evaluation of the macroeconomic conditions, the qualitative factors used in the allowance for loan loss analysis were increased at the onset of the pandemic, primarily related to economic trends and industry conditions, because of vulnerable industries such as hospitality, oil and gas, retail and restaurants and resulted in a $2.1 million provision in the first quarter. Macroeconomic conditions have improved as the economy continues to reopen from the second quarter pandemic-related shutdown and the qualitative factors have been further adjusted. However, as noted in the quarterly results, the Company has an exposure in hotel loans that have been greatly impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic and were evaluated for impairment in the current quarter. Two hotels with a total principal balance of $7.9 million were determined to be impaired due to insufficient cash flows and occupancy rates and was a driving factor in a $2.3 million increase in specific reserves in the third quarter. $16.1 million of hotel loans excluded from homogenous loan pools were evaluated for impairment and determined to not require specific reserves.

Noninterest income increased $448,000, or 7.2%, to $6.7 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2020, compared to $6.2 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2019.

Service fees decreased $203,000 to $1.6 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2020, compared to $1.8 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2019 due to decrease in overdraft fees and customer usage from the pandemic.

Insurance commissions increased $256,000, or 8.0%, to $3.5 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2020, compared to $3.2 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2019 due to an increase in both commercial and personal line polices.

Net gain on sales of loans was $1.0 million in the current period compared to $190,000 in the prior period primarily due to increased mortgage loan production from refinances, which were sold to reduce interest rate risk on lower yielding, long-term assets.

Net gain on sales of investment securities was $489,000 in the current period to harvest gains on higher-interest mortgage-backed securities that were paying down quicker than expected compared to a net loss of $50,000 in the prior period.

The Company’s marketable equity securities, which are primarily comprised of bank stocks, reflected a decline in value of $469,000 for the current period primarily from the impact of COVID-19 on the banking industry.

The Company recorded a $48,000 net loss on disposal of fixed assets in the current year primarily related to the sale of the former Exchange Underwriters headquarters.

There was a $443,000 decrease in other (loss) income as a result of an increase in amortization on mortgage servicing rights combined with a $269,000 temporary impairment on mortgage servicing rights recognized in the current period due to a decline in the interest rate environment that caused increased prepayment speeds and resulted in a decrease in fair value of the serviced mortgage portfolio.

Noninterest expense increased $21.1 million, or 81.4%, to $47.0 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2020 compared to $25.9 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2019. This was primarily impacted by goodwill impairment of $18.7 million and writedown on fixed assets of $884,000 as previously noted. Excluding the impact of these non-cash charges, noninterest expense increased $1.5 million, or 5.9% to $27.5 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2020 compared to $25.9 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2019.

Salaries and employee benefits increased $410,000 for the nine months ended September 30, 2020 compared to $14.3 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2019. The increase is related to the Community Bank Cares 10% premium pay during the pandemic. Additionally, the Company recognized approximately $388,000 of one-time payments related to the transition and retention of a permanent CEO for the nine months ended September 30, 2020 and restricted stock expense increased $91,000 in the current period related to grants in December 2019. This was partially offset by a $407,000 one-time payment that reduced employee benefits from health insurance claims exceeding our stop-loss limit for the 2019 plan year and change from a self-funded to a fully insured plan. Final calculation of the stop loss payment was completed 90 days after the end of the plan year. Also the Company benefited from deferred employee-related loan origination costs associated with PPP loans.

Occupancy expense increased $172,000 to $2.2 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2020 compared to $2.0 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2019. The increase was primarily related to a one-time $84,000 early lease termination payment from the Bethlehem branch closure and increase in property management costs.

Equipment expense decreased $146,000 to $701,000 for the nine months ended September 30, 2020 compared to $847,000 for the nine months ended September 30, 2019 as the result of decrease in depreciation and repairs and maintenance.

Data processing increased $209,000 to $1.4 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2020 compared to $1.2 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2019 primarily due to technology investments.

Contracted services increased $526,000 to $1.5 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2020 compared to $945,000 for the nine months ended September 30, 2019, primarily due to temporary employees hired to assist with PPP loan processing and consultants used to assist in infrastructure improvements. Total consulting fees in the current period associated with the search for a permanent CEO were $177,000.

FDIC assessment expense increased $125,000 to $493,000 for the nine months ended September 30, 2020 compared to $368,000 for the nine months ended September 30, 2019 due to deposit insurance fund credits approved for banks with less than $10 billion in assets in the prior period.

Legal fees and professional fees increased $109,000 to $567,000 for the nine months ended September 30, 2020 compared to $458,000 for the nine months ended September 30, 2019 due to fees associated with the transition and retention of a permanent CEO.

Statement of Financial Condition Highlights

Loans and Credit Quality

Total loans increased $98.4 million to $1.05 billion at September 30, 2020 and represented a 13.7% annualized growth. Year-to-date loan growth was primarily due to originating 638 PPP loans totaling $71.0 million, mainly in the second quarter, which included $2.2 million in net origination fees. Excluding the impact of PPP, organic loan growth was $27.4 million and represented an annualized growth rate of 3.8% as of September 30, 2020. Additional loan growth was experienced through net funding of $33.6 million in construction loans. Average loans for the three months ended September 30, 2020 increased $21.4 million compared to the three months ended June 30, 2020 and was primarily driven by the full quarter impact on average balances from PPP loans. In October 2020, the SBA began processing loan forgiveness. $1.7 million of origination fees are unearned as of September 30, 2020 and expected to be earned upon receipt of funds from the SBA for forgiveness.

The allowance for loan losses was $13.8 million at September 30, 2020 compared to $9.9 million at December 31, 2019. This reflects a $4.0 million provision for loan loss due to an increase in impaired loans with specific reserves and net increase in qualitative factors related to economic and industry conditions to account for the adverse economic impact of COVID-19. As a result, the allowance for loan losses to total loans increased from 1.04% at December 31, 2019 to 1.21% at June 30, 2020 and 1.31% at September 30, 2020. No allowance was allocated to the PPP loan portfolio due to the Bank complying with the lender obligations that ensure SBA guarantee. The allowance for loan losses to total loans, excluding PPP loans, was 1.41% at September 30, 2020 compared to 1.30% at June 30, 2020.

Net charge-offs were $87,000, or 0.01% net charge-offs to average loans on an annualized basis for the nine months ended September 30, 2020, with net charge-offs of $68,000 for the three months ended September 30, 2020. Net charge-offs were $116,000 and $358,000, or 0.05% and 0.05% to average loans on an annualized basis, for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2019, respectively. Net charge-offs are primarily driven by automobile loans in all periods.

Nonperforming loans increased to $15.0 million from $5.6 million at June 30, 2020 compared to $5.4 million at December 31, 2019 and, coupled with loan growth noted previously, resulted in the nonperforming loans to total loans ratio increase to 1.43% at September 30, 2020 compared to 0.54% at June 30, 2020 and 0.57% at December 31, 2019. Nonaccrual loans increased primarily as a result of two hotels with a total principal balance of $7.9 million that were determined to be impaired due to insufficient cash flows and occupancy rates and one commercial and industrial relationship totaling $1.4 million downgraded to substandard.

The Bank provided borrower support and relief through short-term loan forbearance options by primarily allowing: (a) deferral of three months of payments; or (b) for consumer loans not secured by a real estate mortgage, three months of interest-only payments that also extends the maturity date of the loan by three months. In certain circumstances, a second three-month deferral period was granted. The following table provides details of loans in forbearance at the dates indicated.

Statement About Forward-Looking Statements

Statements contained in this press release that are not historical facts may constitute forward-looking statements as that term is defined in the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995 and such forward-looking statements are subject to significant risks and uncertainties. The Company intends such forward-looking statements to be covered by the safe harbor provisions contained in the Act. The Company’s ability to predict results or the actual effect of future plans or strategies is inherently uncertain. Factors which could have a material adverse effect on the operations and future prospects of the Company and its subsidiaries include, but are not limited to, general and local economic conditions, the scope and duration of economic contraction as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic and its effects on the Company’s business and that of the Company’s customers, changes in market interest rates, deposit flows, demand for loans, real estate values and competition, competitive products and pricing, the ability of our customers to make scheduled loan payments, loan delinquency rates and trends, our ability to manage the risks involved in our business, our ability to control costs and expenses, inflation, market and monetary fluctuations, changes in federal and state legislation and regulation applicable to our business, actions by our competitors, and other factors that may be disclosed in the Company’s periodic reports as filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission. These risks and uncertainties should be considered in evaluating forward-looking statements and undue reliance should not be placed on such statements. The Company assumes no obligation to update any forward-looking statements except as may be required by applicable law or regulation.

Given the numerous unknowns and risks that are heavily weighted to the downside as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, our forward-looking statements are subject to the risk that conditions will be substantially different than we are currently expecting. If efforts to contain COVID-19 are unsuccessful and shelter-in-place orders last longer than expected, the recession would be much longer and much more severe and damaging. Ineffective fiscal stimulus, or an extended delay in implementing it, are also major risks. The deeper the recession and the longer it lasts, the more it will damage consumer fundamentals and sentiment. This could both prolong the recession and make any recovery weaker. Similarly, the recession could damage business fundamentals. As a result, the outbreak and its consequences, including responsive measures to manage it, have had and are likely to continue to have an adverse effect, possibly materially, on our business and financial performance by adversely affecting, possibly materially, the demand and profitability of our products and services, the valuation of assets and our ability to meet the needs of our customers.

Explanation of Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

In addition to financial measures presented in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”), we use, and this Press Release contains or references, certain non-GAAP financial measures. We believe these non-GAAP financial measures provide useful information in understanding our underlying results of operations or financial position and our business and performance trends as they facilitate comparisons with the performance of other companies in the financial services industry. Although we believe that these non-GAAP financial measures enhance the understanding of our business and performance, they should not be considered an alternative to GAAP or considered to be more important than financial results determined in accordance with GAAP, nor are they necessarily comparable with non-GAAP measures which may be presented by other companies. Where non-GAAP financial measures are used, the comparable GAAP financial measure, as well as the reconciliation to the comparable GAAP financial measure, can be found herein.

Non-GAAP adjusted items impacting the Company's financial performance are identified to assist investors in analyzing the Company’s operating results on the same basis as that applied by management and provide a basis to predict future performance. Non-GAAP adjusted items reflect non-cash charges related to goodwill impairment and a pre-tax writedown on fixed assets from the Monessen branch closure.

Tangible book value per common share is a non-GAAP measure and is calculated based on tangible common equity divided by period-end common shares outstanding. Tangible common equity to tangible assets is a non-GAAP measure and is calculated based on tangible common equity divided by tangible assets. We believe these non-GAAP measures serve as useful tools to help evaluate the strength and discipline of the Company's capital management strategies and as an additional, conservative measure of the Company’s total value.

Interest income on interest-earning assets, net interest rate spread and net interest margin are presented on a fully tax-equivalent (“FTE”) basis. The FTE basis adjusts for the tax benefit of income on certain tax-exempt loans and securities using the federal statutory income tax rate of 21 percent. We believe the presentation of net interest income on a FTE basis ensures comparability of net interest income arising from both taxable and tax-exempt sources and is consistent with industry practice. The following table reconciles net interest income, net interest spread and net interest margin on a FTE basis for the periods indicated:
